    26 Things You'll Probably End Up Using Seven Days A Week

    So you keep on getting your money's worth.

    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. A hair finishing cream to help tame those annoying baby hairs that surround your face and fly around no matter the weather or how much you try to control them. Sleek buns, we will master you.

    Amazon

    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.

    2. A soap-dispensing brush ideal for scrubbing dishes so you can quickly get through that mountainous pile currently existing in your sink. The brush comes equipped with a scrapper for tough caked-on food, a separate bottle brush, and two replacement heads!

    Amazon

    I have a dish brush and I absolutely ~love~ it! It has totally replaced my kitchen sponge (since sponges can actually be v gross). It's durable, easy to use, and less messy than a sponge. Plus, you can swap out brush heads when the bristles start to get worn. I find I can really scrub with a brush so caked-on food has zero chance.

    Promising review: "I really like how handy this is, you can fill it up with soap and it allows you a good grip when you are scrubbing. I appreciate it keeps my finger nails from getting any guck. A good amount of soap is dispensed when you press the button. It comes with replacement and extra clear for bottles. I would recommend!" —Liz

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    3. And! An adhesive sink caddy with a spot for said brush that'll allow it to fully dry in between uses. The sticky tabs are stronger than suction cups, so, no, it will not fall in the middle of the night, scaring you awake mid-snooze.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "So far, so good! Easy to install, stays fixed in place and sturdy. Great finish!" —mari

    Get it from Amazon for $11.56.

    4. An incredibly chic weekly task pad, to-do note pad, and notebook from Appointed. If you're someone who struggles with staying on-track, then there's no better way to set yourself up for success than getting (and staying) organized.

    @appointedco via Instagram / Via instagram.com

    Get the weekly task pad for $18, the to-do note pad for $10, and the notebook for $24, all from Need Supply Co.

    5. CeraVe's moisturizing cream, because it hydrates and nourishes without making your skin feel oily. It's dermatologist-recommended, quick-absorbing, and long-lasting.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Last year I moved to a new town and saw a new dermatologist who recommended CeraVe Moisturizing Cream for my dry skin and eczema. I can't tell you how many products doctors have recommended in the past that turned out to be just okay — so naturally, I took this advice with a giant grain of salt. But being the hopeful soul I am, I still gave it a shot. AND I'M SO GLAD I DID. First of all, you can use it all over, including on your face, which is very convenient. Second, it absorbs completely without leaving you feel either ~dry~ or gross and greasy. It's got some skin-strengthening ingredients and some fancy technology for releasing moisture all day (I read the jar...ha). But from experience, I can say that, yes, it does leave your skin perfectly soft and really does last all day. And for sensitive folks, it's also one of those free-of-everything creams. Can't recommend it enough." —Sarah MacMillan

    Get it from Amazon for $14.42.

    And check out our full review of the CeraVe Moisturizing Cream.

    6. Glossier's Boy Brow to thicken, shape, and groom your brows to perfection. Available in four shades, you'll be able to give your brows a boost without having that stiff, crunchy feeling.

    Glossier

    The creamy wax formula is alcohol-, fragrance-, paraben-, and cruelty-free. Plus it's appropriate for all skin types, hypoallergenic, and dermatologist tested!

    Promising review: "Literally my ride or die! Works so well and doesn't look like product is on your brows! It just makes them look thicker and you can shape them, but it doesn't clump the hair! So amazing!" —Sher

    Get it from Glossier for $16 (available in four shades).

    7. A 64-ounce hydration-tracking water bottle so you can stop with those excuses about how "it's so hard to drink water!" You have a headache because you're dehydrated! Probably! I'm not a doctor, but I'd put money on it.

    amazon.com

    It features a screw-on cap, carrying handle, and removable straw (with a cleaning brush).

    Promising review: "This is all I've ever wanted in a water bottle! Big enough to refill just one time during the day, has a handle, comes in cute colors, has markings to keep you drinking through the day, a straw, and a removable top for easy cleaning. It also comes with a sponge and a little brush to wash the straw! I absolutely love it!" —Neiza Barrero

    Get it from Amazon for $15.96+ (available in two sizes and 22 styles).

    8. Collapsible stainless steel straws to go wherever you go so you no longer have to rely on plastic straws to get the job done. Since they collapse, they can be used for any cup size and are super convenient to carry around!

    Macy's

    Promising review: "I liked everything about this reusable straw! It retracts and lengthens easily and the silicon felt good to my lips! Very easy to clean. This is a keeper. I will buy more!" —Carole

    Get them from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, sold exclusively at Macy's for $18.99 (use code 2DAY for 30% off at checkout).

    9. 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. It can also be used as a foundation to even out your skin tone and reduce the appearance of pores and blemishes.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    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 $4.49 (available as a pack of two and in six shades).

    10. Traceless Invisibobble hair ties that'll get rid of that annoying ponytail crease that always forms once your hair has been pulled back for a while. It won't cause tangles or catch your hair, so no more painful pulling!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "It sounds like hyperbole to say that these hair ties changed my life, but it's true. I sleep with my hair in a messy topknot using these elastics every night. In the morning, I just take my hair down, run a brush through it, and that's it. My hair is done, and more voluminous than ever before. I do have pretty low-maintenance hair in general (long, naturally straight) but I never thought it could be THIS EASY." —Rachel P.

    Get three from Amazon for $5.94+ (available in five colors).

    And click here for our full review of the traceless hair ties.

    11. A pack of MagicFiber microfiber cleaning cloths for glasses and electronic devices, because let's be real – living without smudges is nearly impossible. They're even delicate enough to use on camera lens!

    amazon.com

    I keep a cloth in my bag, one at work, and one in my apartment! I hate having dust and dirt build up on screens, so they're super useful to have on-hand.

    Promising review: "I usually dislike microfiber cloths; I know they are supposedly great for cleaning your glasses and screens, but every single microfiber cloth I've ever used has left unbearable streak marks on every surface When I opened these cloths, I immediately used one to clean my glasses that I hadn't been able to clean properly all day. I used one of these cloths, and nothing else, and my glasses came out streak free and beautiful! Love these. I was hesitant to spend so much on cloths I was pretty sure I wouldn't like, but these blew me away! Most definitely will buy again." —Stephanie Hollander

    Get two from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in larger packs).

    12. An Anker wireless charing pad so you can juice up your phone without a wire jungle forming on your desk. The blue light will illuminate during charging so you won't be caught two hours later with a nearly empty battery because you didn't lay it down properly.

    BuzzFeed Reviews

    Promising review: "I came to depend on wireless chargers from when I had an iPhone 8. Unfortunately, my charger was not compatible with my new phone (11 model). This one from Anker works just as well. The charging is quick and it works with my phone's leather case. I wasn't sure if I would get another wireless charger, but a couple of weeks plugging and unplugging quickly changed my mind. And for the relatively low price, this one is a great deal." —Anthony Sanchez

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    It was also selected as the low-price pick for the best wireless chargers on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    13. Supergoop! Acai Fusion lip balm with SPF 30 to provide full coverage while out and about. You're probably okay with using sunscreen on your face, but have you ever considered your lips? The last thing you want to experience is a dry, cracked pout.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Love this lip balm! I've been looking for a lip balm with sunscreen protection that doesn't feel waxy, sticky, heavy, or taste bad and this fits the bill. I got the Acai one and the scent is so subtle and dissipates a few minutes after applying. This balm is hydrating and isn't sticky, thankfully. The added antioxidant benefits from the Acai are an added bonus to keep lips looking soft and protected from free-radicals. You can't go wrong with this. I'd choose this over the waxy feeling of Burt's Bees any day. Well worth the extra few bucks for a great balm." —TickTockAlice

    Get it from Amazon for $9.50.

    14. A slim leather cardholder so you don't always have to carry around a heavy, clunky wallet filled with old receipts and extra coins you'll probably never be able to use. You'll be able to travel light and ain't that the dream??

    Amazon

    Each wallet features RFID blocking technology so you can have peace of mind while shopping or traveling. If you're like WTF is RFID...let me explain. Radio frequency identification skimming is a form of digital theft which allows info from RFID-equipped credit cards to be read and duplicated. Make sense?

    Promising review: "Just what I was looking for! The quality is excellent! Nice light brown color with great calf leather and it's well stitched. It easily holds 10 cards, has two money pockets, and a driver's license holder. Holds cards snug. The cutout on the bottom of first card pocket aids in removing a card by pushing it up. Excellent minimalist wallet; it is thinner with all my cards and money than my other wallet empty!" —Steven R. Williams

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in 33 colors).

    15. A Harry Potter-inspired Sorting Hat mug that won't grumpily yell at you every morning, but will provide an enjoyable sipping experience for your daily cup of joe. Plus the nifty lid will keep your bevvy hot.

    Firebox

    Get it from Firebox for $21.99.

    16. Slipper socks with non-slip grip bottoms you'll want to pad around in the moment you get home from work. Freezing cold floors are a *huge* negative side efffect of winter IMHO, so combatting that with a comfy cozy pair of socks is the only way to go.

    Amazon

    They come in like a billion colors and styles so you'll be able to get a different pair for every family member!

    Promising review: "Last year, I purchased two pairs for myself and two pairs to give to my grandkids. Worn and washed multiple times and they still look new. Having mobility issues, I ride around my home in a wheelchair and Colorado has some cold winters! These allow me the traction I need to propel around my wood floor and I stay so nice and warm!" —Cactus Gramby

    Get them from Amazon for $19.39+ (available in various styles and two sizes).

    17. A cutlery organizer, because you've definitely got your set messily thrown into a kitchen drawer. This organizer will make use of vertical space, leaving more horizontal space in your drawer for other utensils.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have a tiny kitchen with only three drawers, so space is at a premium. My silverware organizer took up almost all of one drawer, so this organizer is a godsend. You can fit quite a few spoons, etc., in each slot. My beater attachments fit perfectly into the top two hollows. I will say I have to flip my forks over face down in order to be able to shut and open my drawer, but then the drawer itself is kind of shallow. You NEED this if you have a small kitchen with few drawers!" —mialro

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in two colors).

    18. An exfoliating brush to use on your body to remove dead skin, exfoliate and unclog hair follicles, and increase circulation. It can be used on wet or dry skin, but many reviews recommend using it in the shower!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Love love love this brush! I mainly use this as a wet brush in the shower as opposed to a dry brush. It definitely took a few tries for my body to actually enjoy the brushing. But once it got used to the bristles I can't see myself showering without this tool. It just feels like it's removing the dead top layer of my skin and getting all that junk and sunscreen (it's summer) off my body leaving it so freakin' smooth." —BAARS

    Get it from Amazon for $11.77.

    19. Maybelline Instant Rewind Treatment Concealer with a sponge applicator tip that'll treat dark circles and under-eye puffiness so you never have to deal with that one coworker who greets you with a "are you sick?" when you walk through the door. NO, Susan, I'm just tired.

    Kayla Suazo/BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "This is the best under-eye concealer ever. I am 67 years old and have tried them all. It blends nicely with my foundation and has never caked. The sponge applicator is soft and makes application quick and easy. I will continue to use this product and hope, like many products I've used over the years, that it doesn't get discontinued." —Morty

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99+ (available in 18 shades).

    20. Magnetic twist ties so versatile, you'll use them all over the house. They can wrangle wire, close snack bags, hang keys, and collect pens. Whatever you use them for, the magnetic ends and silicone bands are so strong, they won't break.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I was intrigued by these so I bought them thinking I could find SOME use for them and discovered I can use them for quite a few things. They bind and hold quite well. They DO have a tendency to attach to each other, but that just means they stay together nicely. I especially like them to bind cords when I travel — they are easier than velcro strips and don't break like rubber bands." —K. Becker

    Get a 10-pack from Amazon for $19.98.

    21. A Squatty Potty to make your bathroom go-time more comfortable by relaxing the muscle around your colon, allowing you to ~release~ more quickly and completely.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This thing provided relief INSTANTLY! I take massive amounts of chewable gummy fiber, eat enough vegetables for my entire family, and drink water as if I were an ocean creature... at least 8–10 glasses a day (usually more... much more). If I drink coffee, I have to pee, but that's about it. This stool is the FIRST thing that made this process easier. No struggling. No squirming. No straining. No squeezing. No grimacing. No difficulty. I just GO!" —NoneYa

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in packs).

    22. A contoured 3D eye mask that won't put pressure on your eyes as you sleep. With an adjustable head strap and deep pockets, I literally dare any small amount of light to creep through.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I was looking for a good mask that was very lightweight and didn't press on your eyelids. The cup sizes on this mask around eyes are very large. My eye lashes didn't even touch. It has velcro in the back so you can adjust it to your head size. It does a very good job blocking out the light. I did not even see the sun come up in the morning. I like that this mask doesn't have a nose strip, because the ones that cover your nose push down. This one goes around the nose, but doesn't cover it." —Gina

    Get it from Amazon for $9.69+ (available in five styles).

    23. Anker Soundcore Liberty Airs so you can delve into the world of earbuds without dishing out the cash for AirPods. They'll provide top-notch comfort and sounds quality for a fraction of the price.

    BuzzFeed Reviews

    Promising review: "I just got these and so far I absolutely love them. They were perfect right out of the box - easy to charge and pair with my phone - super comfortable in my ears. I have had several different brands of wired earbuds, wired Bluetooth earbuds, and wireless Bluetooth earbuds. These are easily one of my top two for sound quality and comfort. I am always looking for great sound, ease of use, and comfort because I go on two hour walks and runs, etc. The sound is very good - not really noise cancelling but very crisp and clear with decent bass. I thought they might fall out but they feel secure so far. The Anker company is great - I have dealt with them before and they are always so helpful." —Kasia

    Get a pair from Amazon for $55.99+ (available in two colors).

    Check out why they were the low-price pick for the best wireless earbuds on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    24. L'Occitane shea butter hand cream to keep your paws silky smooth throughout harsh winter days. With coconut oil, honey, and marshmallow root extracts, your hands will not only smell delicious, but you won't have to deal with splitting knuckles and peeling nail beds.

    Sephora

    Promising review: "I have super dry hands in the winter time and I have tried many, many creams. One thing they ALL tend to have in common is the greasy finish, especially the heavy-duty creams. Well, greasy finish is fine, if you're not going to be touching your computers and mouse all day -- but I do. When I first tried the L'Occitane shea butter hand cream, the difference was immediate. The lotion didn't just gloss over the dryness (you dry hand people know what I mean!) but actually soaked in very quickly, leaving no greasy residue, but completely soothed hands. It's the only hand lotion I'll use at work (I have the giant tube and it has lasted one full year since I only need it in the winter months)." —jacquep

    Get it from Sephora for $12+ (available in two sizes and four scents).

    25. Microwavable storage bowls that'll work for leftovers, to heat up food once you get home from work, or as your transportable bento box. There's really nothing they can't do, plus they come in various colors, are 100% airtight, and feature a leak-proof design.

    Food52

    Promising review: "I have always been into using glass containers for a very long time until I realized just how impractical they are with children! These storage bowls are impeccable. They have been knocked and tossed and bashed around by my kids and they will absolutely stand the test of time. They look beautiful and the clear lid allows you to see right into your bowls. I just ordered a second set of each size because I need all of these bowls in my life. They’re perfection." —Nadia M.

    Get a set of four from Food52 for $60+ (available in two styles and seven colors).

    26. Nano 24-Hour Skin Protectant Spray to banish icky germs while on-the-go. The water-based solution forms a molecular bond on the surface of your skin that stays active for, yes, a full 24 hours after application.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I really like this sanitizer! The spray bottle is a little bigger than I expected, but small enough to fit in your pocket and easier to use than any of the gel sanitizers I've used in the past. The spray applicator applies just the right amount of sanitizer to your hands. The feel is different than an alcohol-based sanitizer and you get full absorption. The smell is also very pleasing and not as strong as gel-based sanitizers." —Todd S.

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in two sizes and in larger packs).
