    1. A small lamp that'll cast a sunset or sunrise light in the room and add some ambience without you having to go outside.

    Promising review: "I ordered this lamp as a gift for my husband. We just set up a room in the basement where he keeps his records, films, musical instruments, and other fun stuff. We call it the music listening room — he has a stressful job so he really enjoys going down to the basement and listening to a record and turning on some nice mood lighting. I ordered the sunset lamp as a complement to the theme of the room and we just love it. The closer you are to the wall, the more of a defined a circle it will cast, and the farther back you move the lamp you will see more of an ambient light instead. It’s a really cool light that looks great next to our other eclectic lights, lava lamps and such. When not in use, the lamp is very small and discreet, just a few inches high and sits on the desk in the room." —MBA Squared

    2. plush blanket reviewers swear is an amazing dupe for the Barefoot Dreams one that everyone raves about. You'll be able to get cozy under this ridiculously soft blanket while only spending a fraction of the price. Score!

    Promising review: "I saw this blanket on TikTok, and I have to say I absolutely love it. I washed it several times now, and it’s maintained its elasticity and softness after each wash. It’s warm enough but not too hot for a throw. Absolutely recommend this blanket!" —Amy

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99+ (available in 12 styles and two sizes). 

    3. A volcanic stone face roller that'll remove all the oil and shine that appears on your face now that the sun is shining. Reviewers like this option better than oil-blotting sheets because the ball can be popped out and washed, making it a reusable and more sustainable option.

    Promising review: "I am so extremely oily. Have been dealing with my oily skin since I was in high school and still dealing with my oily skin in my mid-thirties. The roller worked better than I could have expected and exceeded my expectations. This is life changing for me!" —Wow

    Get it from Amazon for $14.49.

    4. A reusable cleaning ball designed to pick up all the crumbs and dust that have made their home in the bottom of your bag. Inside the cage is a sticky ball that grabs all those little suckers easily. And when it's full, all you have to do is remove the sticky ball and rinse it with water.

    Promising review: "This little ball is genius! Rolls around in my purse; which I live out of. It picks up a lot lint, debris, or even crumbs. Easy to find with the bright pink. Just remove and wash, and it’s ready to go again. The price was great and something I can use for years. If you live out of your purse, this a must-have!!" —dj3biggs

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in three colors and as a set of three). 

    5. A pair of drawstring lounge pants one reviewer confirms look nice enough that you can wear them to work. Yes, that's right. Pretty sure you'll feel a little smug when you show up in these and a blazer a couple of times a week because you'll be so comfortable the entire time.

    Promising review: "I was so excited to find this brand on a TikTok video (LOL) that claimed to be a Lululemon dupe, and they totally are! Purchased two different pairs, and will definitely be buying more. Great quality for the price!" —Jalyn

    Get it from Amazon for $25.60+ (available in women's sizes XS–XXL and 23 colors).

    6. rainbow bath bomb to transform your next bath into a magical experience with colors that won't stain the tub. The combo of sea salt, essential oil, shea butter, and grape seed extract work to moisturize without irritating. Reviewers say it leaves behind a light and refreshing scent. I feel relaxed just thinking about it.

    Promising review: "The scent is really nice and isn’t too powerful. The colors are very vibrant, and everyone I’ve sent one to have absolutely loved it!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (also available in packs of three and eight).

    7. A foaming garbage disposal cleaner you can use weekly to stop any buildup or odors from coming out of your sink. Nobody wants to deal with that grossness!

    Promising review: "I saw on TikTok (don’t judge) and automatically added to cart. So easy to use, takes probably a minute to fully bubble up and clean, and you’re left with a clean sink! I use with other drain cleaning products, but would 100% recommend for weekly maintenance." —Jessica Hamilton

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $9.28.

    8. An adorable octopus-shaped blackhead remover that actually works to pull out whiteheads, blackheads, and any other ~ink~ clogging up your pores. You may be disgusted by what the lil' cutie pulls out of your face, but you'll be so thankful it does.

    Promising review: "After just two days of use, this adorable little octopus has done wonders for me, smells great too. Here's how I used it: I wore down the stick just a little to where the texture from the salt is visible, scrubbed around on my face so there was plenty of product, then I used my fingers to gently massage all the gunk away. Rinse, pat dry, and enjoy the softness. Highly recommended for people with sensitive skin like myself." —LuckLocust

    9. A pound of cereal marshmallows, because you're an adult with adult money, so it's only appropriate that you reward your inner child and purchase something you've always wanted — a bag full of delicious marshmallows. No need to pretend to eat the rest of the Lucky Charms when you only bought the box for the marshmallows.  

    Promising review: "Buying these charms was one of the best decisions of my life. The bag is twice the size of my head. The marshmallows are aesthetically pleasing and delicious. It's everything I ever wanted in a snack." —Amazon Customer

    10. A yuzu-scented hand soap made with a hydrating formula that won't dry out your hands when you wash them 4,958 times a day. Plus, it smells good and pumps out as an adorable foamy flower every time you use it. How cool is that?!

    BuzzFeed editor Emma Lord says: "I've *also* been using this soap, and not only is it super hydrating for my hands (LOL @ constantly handwashing now and forever!), the yuzu scent is just calming and lovely, and I'm obsessed with how light and frothy the foaming suds are from the soap. The best part is that the bottle is totally reusable; you buy the dispenser once, and then you can get refills of the foaming soap for $11.64 from then on out." Read more of her yuzu-scented hand soap review (it's #32).

    Promising review: "I saw someone on TikTok with this and did an impulse buy and I love it. You do have to give it a few pumps at the beginning of the first use to get the soap up. But it does make a cute little flower on your hand. Super cute and I love the fact that you can get refills so it's not a one use kind of deal." —Christina Hansen

    11. heatless curling rod headband perfect for anyone who wants to cut down on the amount of heat they use on their hair but not give up those perfect curls. Simply wrap your hair around the headband before you go to bed, and you'll wake up to big curls (sans heat damage!).

    The set includes a curling rod, two hair scrunchies, a claw hair clip, and two duckbill hair clips to set it in place. You can use this on all hair types, but reviewers say it works best when used with damp hair!

    Promising review: "Before purchasing, I’d seen a lot of reviews and tutorials on TikTok showing the results. My hair is thick, coarse, and naturally wavy, so I figured this might be a good alternative to rollers that are time-consuming to put in, difficult to sleep in, and ultimately not worth it. And MAN was I right to be hopeful. Wrap pieces of damp hair around it before bed, the tighter the wrap, the tighter the curl. Easy to sleep in since there’s nothing on the back of your head, and my curls are BOUNCY the next morning. My only complaint is that it doesn’t help give any top-volume, but nothing some teasing can’t fix. 10/10. I’ll never go back to a curling iron." —Mariah

    Get it from Amazon for $8.48+ (available in 12 colors). 

    12. A pair of light saber chopsticks that actually glow *and* change colors. You can have them work together to pick up your sushi or have an epic battle worthy of being the high point of the next Star Wars movie. The choice is yours.

    Promising review: "Ok. I have wanted these for YEARS AND YEARS and finally bought them. WHAT TOOK ME SO LONG?!?!?! I don't eat plain sushi anymore. I eat sushi like a jedi would. Easy to clean and will bring you nerd joy every time you use them." —Hoosieronthemove

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $12.97.

    13. A fizzing toilet tablet you simply drop in your toilet, and the fizzing will work to loosen all the stains and buildup. Then all you have to do is lightly brush the bowl, flush all the grossness away, and get back to doing more fun and exciting things in your life.

    Melanie Aman / BuzzFeed

    Pardo Naturals is a Black woman-owned small biz founded by Rita Pardo who created natural body, hair, and home products that wouldn't irritate her daughter's severe eczema.

    BuzzFeed Shopping editor Melanie Aman says: "For all the folks who don't enjoy cleaning the toilet — myself included — these dissolving tablets make quick work of a grimy bowl. The tablets are a little hard to dislodge from the plastic container (though that does make me feel confident that they're secure during transit and won't break; mine all arrived intact!), but once you get one out, you drop it in the toilet, and let it do its thing. It'll start fizzing — just like a bath bomb — loosening any stains and streaks in 10 minutes so they come away with a light brushing. I never let the toilet get too bad (and usually it takes awhile for me to notice any buildup since there are only two people in the apartment), so I can't vouch for them if you have really set-in hard water stains or haven't cleaned the commode in six months. But if you're looking to ditch the harsh cleansers in your toilet cleaning routine, this is a great addition to your lineup."

    Get six tablets from Pardo Naturals for $10.50 (available in seven scents).

    14. A hanging disco ball planter reviewers swear brings them an immense amount of joy because not only does it look cool hanging around, but it also adds sparkles to the room when light hits it.

    Promising review:This planter brings me so much joy every day! It is well crafted and beautifully packaged. I appreciate the extra touches like the fact it comes with a few extra mirrored tiles and that there are different ways to display it (it comes with a stand and nicely braided hanging rope). Every day my whole living room becomes a party. :) I cannot recommend this enough.” —Phil 

    Get it from Amazon for $29.97.

    15. A microwave s'mores maker because what's better than having the ability to make a delicious s'more (or two) on a random Tuesday night, no bonfire required? Nothing. Nothing is better than that. 🤩

    And it's so easy to use! All you have to do is fill the water reservoir, put your s'mores ingredients on the tray (up to two of them), and heat in the microwave for 30 seconds. The marshmallow and chocolate will heat at the same time — leaving you with one delicious treat. 

    Promising review: "Works great and the s’mores tasted great! This is perfect for when you want a s’mores, but don’t want to start a fire!" —Penelope

    Get it from Amazon for $12.92.

    16. Essence's Lash Princess mascara to take your lashes to new ~heights~ and make people think you're wearing falsies, when in fact, all you did was swipe on some mascara.

    BuzzFeed Shopping Editor Emma Lord says: "Hello, that is my face above, because I bought into the hype of over 150,000 5-star reviews, and now I will never look back!! Putting it on is like giving my eyelashes butterfly wings. It doesn't get clumpy, it stays put ALL the live long day (I spent all of last year's ridiculously hot pandemic summer wearing it, so I can speak to that), and you can apply it on very lightly if you don't want it to look so dramatic, or continue applying for longer lashes each time."

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    18. milk frother here to help you ~whip~ up creamy frothy coffee (or tea) in seconds. With this, you can make your own festive drinks at home without having to shell out $6 every time you head to the coffee shop.

    Promising review: "So I’ll admit I got this on a whim after a TikTok video, however I’m in love with this thing! It’s so much fun to use and you make your at home drinks feel so much more special. It’s easy to use and froths pretty quickly if you’re on the fence I’d say what are you waiting for buy it already!" —Denise

    19. A Golden Girls-inspired dishwasher magnet so your roommate (or partner) will ~thank you for being a friend~ by letting them know they shouldn't put the dirty dishes into the clean dishwasher.

    20. Some light switch extenders designed with a moon-shaped handle so your kids can turn the lights on and off all by themselves. Sometimes the littlest things make the biggest difference.

    You can install these in minutes to standard light switches. Plus, they glow in the dark! 

    Promising review: "Must-have for toddlers! Perfect solution! As my toddler's independence soars, so do frustrations. This light switch extender pack was a great buy. He can now turn on the lights in his room and bathroom. Installation was easy and works as expected." —AW

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $12.99.

    21. An exfoliating scrub mitt you can use a couple of times a month to remove all the excess dead skin and particles on your skin that regular soap doesn't get to. It's also great for removing self-tanner and can reduce ingrown hairs while also increasing circulation.

    Promising review: "My skin is 100% softer and feels far smoother thanks to this product!!! The difference was noticeable after ONE use, its true. All the grime, rolled up skin, flakes and chucks — shudder, that was on me??? All the other customers are saying how disgusting it is when you see how much dead skin sloughs off, and that is true. I disagree that it only comes off after the first use though — I have continued to see improvement over the time I've used it, about 6 weeks, and even some age-related and sun damage discoloration is gone. These are the BEST, a MUST-HAVE, holy grail exfoliating mittens. I DEFINITELY recommend this! Did I say I recommend this 100%? I do!" — Kindle Customer. g'ma

    Get it from Amazon for $7.49 (also available in a set of two). 

    22. A natural sweater pill remover made from upcycled car windshield glass that'll remove any pills from your sweaters, towels, bedding, and more to make them look as good as new.

    Celsious is a Black woman-owned and environmentally focused laundromat *and* online shop based in Brooklyn.

    BuzzFeed Shopping Editor Maitland Quitmeyer says: "Like many of you, I've been living in sweats and PJs during this almost-year of WFH full time. And it's made me revisit the state of some of my loungewear. Take for example, this college sweatshirt I wear all the time — as evidenced by the rather EXTENSIVE pilling all over it. So when I saw this pumice-esque sweater stone (it's made from upcycled car windshield glass — how cool is that?!), I decided it was worth the try. We've featured electric pill removers (mostly the fan-favorite Conair one) many times, and they really work. But sometimes you're looking for a little more detail or control — that's where this stone comes in handy.

    I was able to navigate around the contours of the logo on my sweatshirt with ease, removing pills using the corner or the entire flat bottom in a few quick strokes. It truly took no time at all — the sweatshirt was done in mere minutes. The only thing I would note is that particles do "fall out" of the stone, so do your pill-removing on a surface that's easy to sweep or vacuum up at the end."

    Get it from Celsious for $17 or Amazon for $11.75.
