    25 Products For Anyone Who's Stressed Like No Other

    *Takes a deep breath* Everything is fine.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. An automatic shutoff safety outlet to prevent the daily panic attack when you realize you might have left something on that *definitely* should have been turned off before you left the house. Controlled by a single button, you can set how long you want the plugged-in device to get power.


    You can choose from one, two, four, or eight hours. BTW, there's also a nifty "hold" function if you decide you want something to stay on for longer than eight hours. Huzzah.

    Promising review: "I use this to charge my cell phone without fear of overcharging. The automatic shut off at a specific time is also convenient for other things. For example, anything you may forget to turn off (a flatiron or curling iron) or for say, a lamp you want shut off after you fall asleep. I can also use it with my ancient slow cooker that doesn't switch off until you unplug it. Very pleased with this purchase." —Yvonne M

    2. A hair finishing cream that'll tame those annoying little hairs that surround your face and fly around no matter the weather or how much you try to control them. You won't have to waste time in the morning trying to achieve that perfect sleek bun.

    Made from natural plant extracts, the serum won't leave your hair greasy.

    Promising review: "No matter what I do or what expensive and high rated product I try, my flyaways are an annoying constant. This product has completely rid me of my daily top of head flyaway frizz! I wish I would have discovered this product years ago! It smooths my hair out and truly lasts all day. Be careful, as a tiny bit goes a long way!" —RHoffsommer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98.

    3. A pair of blue light–blocking glasses for reducing digital eye strain. If you sit in front of a computer for hours on end, then these are for you! They can leave your eyes feeling less dry and tired by filtering out short wavelength blue light emitted by screens.

    Maitland Quitmeyer/BuzzFeed

    I use blue light-blocking glasses everyday at work, and they've significantly helped my eyes and headaches. I used to get so stressed sitting in front of a computer because I knew I'd feel terrible in about two hours flat. With the glasses, I can focus more on work and not on the mega-migraine that's (no longer) approaching.

    Promising review: "Everyone knows from previous reviews that these glasses are unique and high fashion. I wanted to add that they do indeed block blue light. I am a graduate student and look at computer screens, iPad screens, and Powerpoint presentations all day. My eyes feel less dry and tired at the end of the day. I used a blue light filtering testing kit that came with a different pair of glasses and these passed. The glasses are on the heavy side but comfortable and have a solid, un-cheap feel." —SSMax

    Get them from Amazon for $29.95 (available in three colors).

    4. A weekly planner with monthly pages, because nothing helps like keeping detailed track of what's going on in your life and what's to come. The pages are bleed-resistance and it features a contacts page, notes pages, inner pocket.


    Promising review: "I have bought planners almost every year for 35 years, and this one is finally what I wanted all along. For one thing, IT'S TOUGH. Heavy thick cover, and good sturdy binding wire; double row. I am a field technician, and this thing needs to survive a rough ride in my van. This one will. Then there are the entry pages. Open it, and you're looking at a whole week, and blocks big enough to not only put in the appointments, but NOTES too. Journal entries. And the book is not huge either. My last planner did not easily fit inside my satchel. This one does." —High Tech Joe

    Get it from Amazon for $8.09 (available in three colors).

    5. A set of interlocking bins to keep that infamous junk drawer clean so you don't have to spend an hour searching for something you need asap. Everyone knows organization = less stress.


    The junk drawer is probably the most opened drawer in your home, so why not make it less of a headache? There are eight total and they're completely modular, so you can arrange them in any way you want.

    Promising review: "These things are AWESOME!! I love the fact that you can lay them out however you want and still connect them. They are perfect for the so-called junk drawer — you can give all the odd stuff a home and have it organized. When my hubby asks for a pen, I tell him to open the junk drawer and they are on the far right in the long bin. He actually could find them easily without digging, it was great!" —Shelley R

    Get a pack of eight from Amazon for $8.99+ (also available to purchase in packs).

    6. A 32-ounce hydration-tracking water bottle, because you've been struggling to drink water regularly for months now and the constant dehydration is causing headaches. Keeping regularly hydrated can help with your skin and hunger level, so staying on top of it can greatly benefit your health overall.

    Promising review: "This water bottle exceeded my expectations! I find that having a count down helps me get through water faster so I figured I would give this bottle a shot. I expected the plastic to be transparent so I was a bit confused when I took it out of the box and it wasn't. The color is light enough that you can actually see the liquid in the bottle. The wrist strap attached is amazing quality! Very sturdy, as well as the bottle itself. The mouth piece is easy to sip from without much effort and also easy to clean. Highly recommend!" —Kristy

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in 11 colors).

    7. A pet hair remover that'll make having your cat and/or dog on sofa way less worrisome. All you've got to do is roll the brush forward and backwards to pick up stray hair and lint. Come the holiday season you won't have to last-minute frantically vacuum the entire house to prevent Aunt Susan from dropping a line about how her allergies are acting up.,

    Everything gets collected in the compartment in the back, so empty it out once you're finished cleaning.

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my crazy cat-loving life? Sticky rollers work fine for clothes but this is the only product that has ever COMPLETELY removed all the cat hair from my bed. I have a long-haired 20-pound tabby and if you run your hands up his back a few times and fling the hair everywhere, it looks like it's snowing — he never stops shedding no matter what I do. This roller is absolutely amazing. Everyone is getting one for Christmas, even if they don't have a pet. I don't care, it's THAT good." —Stephanie

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    8. A lavender pillow spray, because a quick spritz before bed is the perfect solution to nighttime worries. It'll eliminate any ~weird~ room odors, leaving behind a fresh and light lavender scent that'll help lull you into a sound slumber.


    Promising review: "I sent this to my Mom because she needed lavender, and the oil wrecks linen. This is a wonderful mist. My Mom uses it to relax so that she can drift into a calm, peaceful sleep. She uses it for naps and night time. She has to get up in the middle of the night to take medication & use the bathroom. This product puts her back into her sleep mode immediately. It works!" —J. Blackburn

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in gift set and eight scents).

    9. A pack of tea tree and calendula oil–infused pimple patches that'll begin to clear up breakouts overnight by sucking out all the gunk and pus trapped underneath the skin. Gone are the days of freaking over your latest blemish.,

    Promising review: "I’ve tried so many brands of pimple spots, and these are hands-down the best on the market. Last night, I put these on a few acne problems (a small cyst, a whitehead, and a pimple). I just woke up and am writing this review in disbelief. THEY'RE FLAT! Gone! All of them! I could cry I’m so happy. The packaging is also ideal because it allows you to conveniently and easily peel the stickers off without stretching them out or folding them back onto themselves. Do yourself, and your complexion a huge favor! Have these on hand for a stubborn zit when you really need help. Make sure you apply them to completely clean and dry skin." —Caitlyn

    Get 40 patches from Amazon for $8.50. And check out the larger square patches for $8.50.

    10. A set of mesh laundry bags so you can separate lights from darks and delicates from non-delicates to keep laundry organized. That way, you can just pop the bags into the machine instead of desperately searching for items at the bottom of your bin. It'll cut down on lost socks and time wasted looking for that pair of underwear.


    Let's be real — laundry day is tough enough. These bags will simplify the process because they'll protect clothing from snagging or tangling so you never again have to toss a beloved item because of tearing.

    Since they're mesh, water and detergent can easily get through for a full cleaning. And don't worry about them opening, the zippers tuck into an elastic band to keep them safely shut while washing and drying.

    Promising review: "This set is AMAZING! The assortment of medium and smaller ones fit the bill for all my laundry needs. I used the largest bag to wash my queen-sized duvet cover with some other bedding. I used to wash them in separate, smaller loads to avoid the sheet tangle. These large bags cured that problem and I can wash everything together without having a big knot to pull apart. Just buy them; you'll be so glad you did." —Elizabeth

    Get them from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in a set of four, five, or seven).

    11. A monthly bill planner, because it's super easy to get caught up in handing over your credit card without keeping track of exactly how much you're spending. It includes an account tracker, monthly savings tracker, debt payment log, check ledger, monthly budget worksheet, and weekly/daily expense trackers.


    Even the word finance stresses me out, so you might as well make the overall process of keeping track of your money easier and more efficient.

    Promising review: "I'm working on budgeting and saving money. I was using a notebook, but it was hard to keep track of everything. I set this up with the weekly and monthly tracking. I'm easily able to see where I'm spending money and where I need to save." —Nevermind

    Get it from Amazon for $6.89.

    12. Coty Airspun oil-reducing and setting powder you can use on top of your makeup to soften the overall look of your skin and reduce shiny buildup. You'll never have to worry about looking like a lil grease monster before walking into a big meeting or blind date.

    It can also be used as a foundation to even out your skin tone and reduce the appearance of pores and blemishes. All it takes is a few pats!

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this powder. I've used more expensive ones in the past, but this one takes the cake. It keeps my makeup on all day, even with my oily skin. I personally don't use the 'baking' method, but even so it keeps my face in place all day, even when I get hot and sweaty. Other reviewers are right, it does have a slight baby powder smell, but it doesn't bother my very much and once you've applied it to your face, the smell disappears. I recommend it to all of my friends!" —Brittany

    Get it from Amazon for $5.97 (available as a pack of two and in six shades).

    13. A scratch remover for cars that'll buff out surface scrapes that would otherwise cost you big bucks at a repair shop. Now you don't need to rush home and have a meltdown in your driveway the next time a little bump or bruise occurs...


    Promising review: "This was the first time I had ever attempted a project like this and I was able to get great results without any special tools. I just used the polishing pad included, a microfiber towel and some high grit sand paper for the tougher spots. Everything worked out well. I finished the job with Turtle Wax polish. The pictures speak for themselves. This stuff works!" —TEXAS95

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    14. A concentrated mold and mildew gel remover so you don't have to worry about your parents ridiculing the state of your bathroom when they come over for dinner. No more frantic cleaning sessions before the doorbell rings.

    The gel will cling to whatever surface you apply it to, working its magic while you sit and wait. All you have to do is wash it away after a while.

    Promising review: "Easy to apply. No scrubbing. Mold was gone in a few hours. The directions say to use rubber gloves. I didn’t and my hands smelled like bleach for few hours, so be advised. This beats the heck out of anything I’ve ever tried to take mold off of grout. Very much worth the price. The bottle is small, so I bought two." —Darbelob

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    15. A handheld garment steamer to save you time during your morning routine so you're not sprinting out the door, forgetting your wallet and phone along the way. It'll heat up in under two minutes, so say goodbye to your iron.

    It's suitable for cotton, nylon, polyester, denim, silk, wool, and sequins.

    Promising review: "I got this steamer for travel and for quick ironing jobs. My dryer never seams to get out wrinkles, and I don’t enjoy pulling out the ironing board. This thing is cool! It’s ready within a minute or two. You can hear the water bubbling so you know it’s hot and ready. It’s super easy to use, And I like the tie they give you to bind the cord for easy storage. I steamed two shirts and still had over half the basin left." —Mrs. Wheeler

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    16. A clip-on waterproof LED light for your pet so night walks aren't spent frantically searching for your pooch in dark. The lights can also be clipped to a jacket, keys, or backpack for helpful illumination., Amazon

    Promising review: "Great product. I frequently walk my seven-month-old Doberman puppy at night due to my schedule. Often times I let him run around the park off-leash, but it’s impossible to see him in the dark. One night I saw another dog with a light around his neck similar to this product so the owner told me she got it from a local store and she paid $10 for one single light with no battery replacement. I went on Amazon to find a cheaper version and this was the best option I found. It has been great so far. I clip it onto my dog's collar and it works perfectly. We have been using it for the past few months every night for about one to two hours and we still have not needed to replace the light. I think this package will be able to last his whole doggy life. The color is very bright and his puppy friends can spot him from the parking lot." —Gina

    Get six lights (with extra batteries) from Amazon for $11.99.

    17. A bottle of Poo-Pourri Before-You-Go toilet spray to mask any nasty odors so you can finally poop at your S.O.'s place. Oh last minute sleepover? Yes, I'd actually love to stay over.


    Just spritz before you go, and voilà! No more stressful hangouts when you calculate in your mind how long you can stay before you've got to head home to use the bathroom.

    Promising review: "A couple of sprays on the toilet water before you sit down and everything smells like fresh lemons when you are done. Very easy to use and so far has held up very well." —Bruce B.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98+ (available in various scents and seven sizes).

    18. A magnetic cloud key holder that'll provide the perfect place to store your keys overnight so you don't waste time in the morning searching your entire home for them. It's super powerful and can hold multiple sets.

    If you're worried at the adhesive back damaging your wall (if you're a renter), reviewers also recommend using command strips to mount the cloud!

    Promising review: "I bought this for my apartment, and my sister and I absolutely love it. It's very cute, doesn't draw a lot of attention to itself or look out of place, and actually holds a ridiculous amount of weight. Both our key rings are pretty heavy and this product holds both our key rings. I was worried that the magnets would weaken and that our keys would fall off the wall in the middle of the night, but that hasn't happened yet. The adhesive back is so strong, so renters beware. Put it in a good place because it'll be hard to move once you do." —ellery

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98.

    19. And once you're out the door in a flash (thanks to your trusty key holder), a set of key caps to know which key goes into which lock will save you from frustratingly rustling through your crowded keychain.


    I color-coded my keys and it's been the biggest help. I no longer have to guess which unlocks what and spend time struggling outside my door when carrying packages and heavier bags.

    Promising review: "This works on a variety of different types of keys. My job requires a lot of different keys and fumbling around every time I needed to open a door was almost as annoying as the ink or stickers rubbing off every key when I tried to mark them to identify each key. Now everything is neatly organized by color. For example, I now know that the red key opens the front office door!" —Maximum Verbosity

    Get 30 caps from Amazon for $6.45.

    20. A stain remover that'll rid of juice, yogurt, sticky ice pop and whatever else your child decides to drop during the car ride home from the park. If you have to spend another dollar on your car, you'll probably have a conniption.

    The solution won't leave any residue behind, and doesn't require any rinsing.

    Promising review: "I had terrible rust and oil stains all over the seats of my car when I bought it. I tried other cleaners to get it out, but they actually made the stains darker. I took it to the dealership to see if they could get it out and they flat out told me no, so I gave up and lived with it for almost five years. I tried this after it was recommended by a friend. I sprayed it on and literally watched the stain run right off my seat. It was amazing! I thought I was going to have to pay hundreds of dollars to replace the seats in my car because nothing else would work. This stuff really is awesome!" —Brittany

    Get them from Amazon for $11.55+ (available in packs).

    21. A magnetic menu board to end the guessing game on Sunday afternoon when you look at the week ahead and begin to figure out what you've got going on and when you'll have time to cook.


    A menu board + a slow cooker = the ultimate meal prepping tools. It also features a spot to jot down groceries and notes. You'll get three different colored markers as well.

    Promising review: "I really love this menu board. It's cute, easy to see, and gets the job done at the same time. It has made menu planning, keeping a grocery list, and keeping track of upcoming appointments so much easier. A friend who saw mine has already ordered one for herself. It comes with three markers, blue, pink, and green, and you do have to 'prime' the markers first. Once you do that, they work so well and are nice and bright. The menu board is a nice, big size and has a strong magnetic hold. I had read some reviews about bubbles or wrinkles in their menu boards, but mine is nice and flat without any issues." —S. Winkeljohn

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    22. A high quality foam pillow, because a good night's sleep means more energy throughout the day to successfully tackle life's toughest tasks. This ventilated pillow will keep you cool, won't need constant fluffing, and will mold to the shape of your head.

    BuzzFeed Reviews

    Promising review: "Finally found a pillow my head and neck enjoy. I recommend this pillow for back and stomach sleepers. Gives great support and soft. Supports both head and neck perfectly. Been on it for a month now and I had no issue as all adjusting to it. Slept great first night on it. No complaints here!" —Kris Hall

    Get them from Amazon for $75+ (available in standard or king size).

    These were also selected as the high-price pick for the best pillows on BuzzFeed Reviews.

    23. Bissell Stomp N' Go stain lifting pads so you can treat your pet's next indoor accident immediately (and effectively). It's great for wine, blood, and coffee, plus it doesn't require you using your hands! Watching your pooch lift their leg and go can make your stress level rise immediately, so knowing you have a go-to method for removal will help you from entering crisis mode.

    The cleaning formula is released when you stomp, so there's no added spray involved! All you've gotta do is lay the pad down, stomp with your foot a few times, and remove. If the stain is really bad, you can leave the pad for a few hours.

    Promising review: "I never ever write reviews for anything, but I just had to write one for these. We have two dogs and one of them will get sick or have an accident in the house a few times a month. I've used all kinds of carpet cleaner as well as the SpotBot, but they never seemed to really get the stains out. I bought these on a whim because I was desperate to find something that might work and guess what? THEY WORKED! No joke, every stain I have put these on has come out of the carpet. I have told everyone I know about these and have heard great things from them as well. If you are on the fence, just give them a try!" —Angela Mimm

    Get 20 pads from Amazon for $24.99+.

    24. A Migrastil roll-on stick that'll disperse peppermint, spearmint and lavender onto your skin if you start to feel head pain as a result of a particularly stressful day. You can apply it directly to your temples and the back of your neck for some relief.

    Katy Herman/BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I have noticed throughout my work day I will begin to get the dreaded afternoon headache. This migraine stick is my new go-to. The second I feel a headache coming on, I just roll this on and within seconds I feel it working. Within a minute or so I feel fine again. I noticed it gives a little boost of energy as well. I have also used it when I feel a full blown migraine coming on. All I can say is it really works. In addition to taking the pain away, it also provides a tingly sensation. Wherever you roll it on tingles after application. I am now a customer for life and love this product. I have also noticed that even if I use it often, it keeps working. You don’t grow a tolerance to it." —Corinne Beck

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    25. A gift wrap organizer to make wrapping presents a breeze this holiday season. It'll store those numerous rolls of holiday paper, plus ribbons, bows, and tape. It won't do the shopping for you (apologies), but at least you won't be up till 2AM wrapping gifts this year!

    You'll also receive little sticky labels so you can mark which compartment holds what. Overall it has 10 pockets and can hang from the inside of a closet door.

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE my organizer. It feels so sturdy and the awesome design allows all my gift wrapping supplies to fit nicely together in one place. The sticky labels provided are a plus because I can clearly mark compartments!" —Karen B.

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99.

    The less stress, the better!
