Products you buy through our links may earn us a commission. Oh, and if something's out of stock, oops, it was there (and all prices were accurate) at time of publication.

It’s 8:53 am on a weekday and you were supposed to be on your way to work 15 minutes ago. Sound familiar? Thought so. That’s why we curated this list of 10 tried-and-true products that will help get you up and out the door in less than 10 minutes. Because you already have enough to worry about, and skipping breakfast or miscalculating those hair-wash days shouldn’t be one of them.


A dry shampoo that’s basically a shower in a bottle…

If there’s one thing that always sets us back, it’s our hair. But this dry shampoo from hOURS can help you get one more day out of your last hair wash (or two, if you believe). It uses clay to absorb excess oil and doesn’t leave behind chalky residue. You can also use it whenever you want to add a little extra volume. ($29, hOURS)

Refreshing Body Wipes

Body wipes if you don’t have time to shower…

No time to scrub? A quick wipe-down with these Bliss sheets will get you freshened up in less than 30 seconds. They’re plant-based, aluminum-free, cruelty-free, and smell amazing, thanks to hints of lemon and sage. We especially love that you don’t need to rinse with water before or after use, making them even quicker and easier to use. ($11, Amazon)

Heritage Store Facial Spray

A refreshing facial spray you can use anytime…

This cult-favorite face mist can be used throughout the day whenever you need to give your skin (or your mood) a little boost. It combines Damask rose oil with purified water to soothe and hydrate dull skin. Use it as the first step in your makeup routine to give yourself a wakeup call or as a makeup setter for a total refresh that takes seconds. ($4.99+, Amazon)

Undone Beauty Water Blush

A multi-use makeup stick for full glam on the go…

Lips, cheeks, eyeshadow, you name it. This one-and-done water blush stick melts right onto your skin for a flushed, dewy look no matter where you use it. It comes in four different shades that are sheer and shimmer-free for a natural effect. Just a few swipes, and you’re good to go. ($10, Ulta Beauty)

Deep Cleaning Teeth Wipe

Teeth wipes for when you forgot to re-up on toothpaste…

No need to worry about getting toothpaste everywhere with these disposable teeth wipes. They don’t require any water, brushes, or paste. All you have to do is slip one onto your finger and brush for a minty clean-up after a meal. ($13.96, Amazon)

Midi Dress

A one-and-done outfit you can wear practically anywhere…

There’s no analysis paralysis quite like the kind you have when you open your closet in the morning. Enter: this throw-on-and-go dress you can wear anywhere. It’s soft, stretchy, and has a floaty midi skirt that can lean casual with sneakers or more elevated with heels and jewelry. It comes in a variety of colors and costs $25, so you’ll want to grab a few to wear throughout the week. ($25, Target)

Buy it
Heavy Duty Hair Clips

Heavy duty hair clips (that actually hold your hair up)...

When it comes to hair clips, there are almost too many options. But these Amazon bestsellers simply take the cake. They’re designed to grab (and keep) hold of thin, thick, or curly hair all day long. Plus, they come in tons of different colors, so we won’t blame you for snagging more than one pack. ($8.99, Amazon)

Misfits Variety Box

A protein bar that’ll keep you satiated…

We never thought a vegan protein bar could taste this good. These are super high in fiber, low in sugar, and have 15 grams of protein to keep you going until your next meal. We also like the chewy and crunchy texture. Snag the variety pack to try all their flavors, like Cookie Dough and Chocolate Brownie. ($29.99/12-pack, Amazon)

Buy it
Travel Backpack With Charging Port

A travel backpack that doubles as a phone charger…

Forgot to charge your phone overnight? This chic backpack’s got you covered. It has a built-in USB cable, making it easy to throw in an external battery (we love this one) to charge up your devices. Plus, it’s big enough to fit a 15-inch computer, a tablet, books, clothes, and more. Did we mention it’s made with water-resistant nylon? Love. ($23.99, Amazon)

Buy it
Food Containers

Food storage containers that cosplay as to-go lunch boxes…

This one might take a little prep the night before, but these colorful, leak-proof glass jars will keep your food fresh and ready to grab on your way out. Each jar comes with an airtight lid and stainless steel spoons that attach to the side. They’re perfect for overnight oats, salads, fruits, chia puddings, and, well, anything else you’d like to prep. Bonus: They’re dishwasher-safe. ($16.19/4-pack, Amazon)
