    25 Amazon Products BuzzFeed Writers Love, And You Probably Will, Too

    We're pretty much obsessed with them.

    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 tub of Weiman tarnish-removing wipes that'll make all your beautiful baubles look brand new again. It also works on cutlery, if your utensils are starting to look a little worse for wear.

    "My mother-in-law recommended this product to me and it may be the greatest thing she's ever given me (aside from, I guess, the life of my husband). I had a bunch of tarnished Tiffany's jewelry and my standard jewelry cleaner wasn't doing the trick. I ordered a jar of these wipes and put them to the test. I think my photos (pictured above) speak for themselves! I went to tooooown cleaning every piece of jewelry I owned simply because I was amazed at how well this product worked." —Heather Braga

    Get a pack of 20 wipes on Amazon Canada for $20.17.

    2. A bottle of seaweed-infused soil enhancer that's packed with deep-sea nutrients, vitamins, and minerals. Consider this treating your indoor garden to a sushi dinner, every week — they will love you for it.

    "I have a lot of plants, and many of them are demanding. Since I can admittedly be a bit of neglectful plant parent, I like to have a few secret weapons at my disposal that can bring my babies back to life when I've forgotten to water them for a few days (or weeks). This stuff does WONDERS. My monstera is absolutely obsessed with it and has since spawned several monstera babies thanks to its magic. TL;DR: If you have plants and want to stop killing them, get this stuff." —Alice Prendergast

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $13.90+. Available in three sizes.

    3. This vegan, cruelty-free e.l.f. setting spray that'll save you from turning into an oily mess before the day is done. It's infused with good-for-you ingredients like vitamins B, E, and arctium majus root, so it'll keep your skin happy and healthy, too.

    "Fun fact: I'm one of those people who uses bathroom paper towels as oil blotting sheets whenever my nose gets shiny AF at work. Why pay for the sheets when I know my nose is just gonna get oily all over again? Well, little did I know that a setting spray (something I only associated with fancy events and makeup artists) would solve this pesky issue." —Patrice Peck

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $5.97.

    4. A microwave egg cooker that'll help you whip a mini omelet in mere minutes, so you'll be able to make a restaurant-level breakfast sammy, without wasting any time. You can use it to poach and scramble, too, if that's more your style.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    "I often forgo breakfast because I feel like I just don't have enough time to cook in the mornings. But then along came this gadget, and it changed everything. You just pour eggs and any fillings like cheese, veggies, or protein into the egg cooker. Mix it all up and microwave for two minutes. And there you have it, eggs in no time with no mess." —Hannah Loewentheil

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $5.

    5. A wine stain remover, because sometimes accidents happen when you've got a glass of Bordeaux in your hand. It'll magically dissolve stains from clothing, furniture, and carpeting, leaving your stuff looking fresh 'n' clean.

    Emily Shwake / BuzzFeed

    "My first experiment involved a fresh red wine spill on a bright white shirt. I really did a number on this shirt so I drenched it in WineAway. The wine didn't disappear in the allotted one to five minutes, but after letting it dry overnight, the stain was almost completely gone. For fair measure, I used a carpet square that had both new and old wine stains in my second experiment. I wasn't quite as generous with the pour on the carpet, so both the old and new stains vanished in about a minute. Afterward, there was still a faint outline of a stain on both the shirt and the carpet, so a few more applications might be necessary, but I definitely preferred this to any heavy-duty scrubbing that I would have otherwise had to do." —Emily Shwake

    Get it from Amazon for $12.43.

    6. A pair of beauty product spatulas that'll help you get every last bit of product out of your makeup containers. Gone are the days of throwing out half of your $72 holy grail foundation before it's even done.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    "The regular spatula is great for medium to large-sized bottles like lotion, shampoo, or conditioner. It's long enough to get to the bottom of the containers and the end of the handle is on an angle so you have more control. The mini spatula is perfect for makeup bottles. I used it all the time when the pump on one of my serum bottles stopped working. I figure after using these spatulas for a few months, I've probably saved more than a few loonies and toonies on makeup and skincare. Plus, it's super satisfying to see how much product comes out. I knew there was more in there!" —Kaysey Davis

    Get a two-pack from Amazon Canada for $9.28. Available in three colours.

    7. A pair of waterproof ankle boots that are both fashionable and functional. They'll become a staple in your wardrobe because they're lightweight, super comfy, and great for all types of weather.

    Liza Hicks/BuzzFeed

    "These boots were made for walking — especially if you live in Canada and you're walking through snow and slush. I was unsure what to expect with these boots, because I’d never purchased shoes off Amazon before. To my delight, I’ve become obsessed with them! These boots are now a staple in my wardrobe. They are lightweight, waterproof, and super comfy. They’re also black, so they can match pretty much any outfit. They aren’t super insulated, but I usually just wear a thick pair of socks if I know it’s going to be cold out, and I'm fine. But the best thing about them is their super affordable price tag." —Liza Hicks

    Get them from Amazon Canada for $35.99+. Available in 11 colours and in women's sizes 4.5-12.

    8. A pack of Velcro cord ties to organize all those wires and doodads that are currently floating around your junk drawer. They're a lot more effective than rubber bands and zip ties, and are easy to adjust and remove.

    Alice Prendergast / Via BuzzFeed

    "I am basically the queen of getting wires tangled. From headphones to computer cords, everything I owned used to have at least one knot in it — until I bought these babies. They've helped me keep everything that's not currently in use perfectly wrapped. Not only is this more convenient for me, but it extends the lives of my cords because I no longer spend minutes yanking at them." —Alice Prendergast

    Get a pack of 25 ties on Amazon Canada for $10.73. Also available in grey and in larger packs.

    9. A trio of eyebrow razors that'll make you a pro when it comes to shaping your brows. They're also awesome for removing peach fuzz, if you want to trim your 'stache or touch up your cheeks.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    "I generally don't go to salons for my eyebrows and also don't trust myself with anything that has the word 'wax' and 'at-home' in the product description, so these have been a godsend. I use them for my brows and they're not only super quick and effective, but I've personally never dealt with razor burn or any other kind of reaction you might get from shaving an unusual part of your human face. A lot of reviewers also mention using them for dermaplaning." —Emma Lord

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $7.79. Also available in a pack of six.

    10. This set of water bottle-cleaning brushes that'll help you get up into even the smallest nooks and crannies of your canteen. They come on a key ring, so they'll stay together and never go MIA in your drawers.

    Emily Shwake / BuzzFeed

    "The brushes on this cleaning set definitely get into all the nooks and crannies of my water bottle, and they are sturdy enough to withstand really putting some elbow grease into a scrubbing. The only complaint I might have is that the bristles already started falling out after the first try. But hey, if the brushes start to look a little bare, I wouldn't mind spending the money on a replacement." —Emily Shwake

    Get a set of three on Amazon Canada for $16.99. Also available in white.

    11. A tub of Mario Badescu silver powder that'll suck the gross stuff right out of your pores. It's made of natural ingredients, including kaolin clay, zinc oxide, and calcium carbonate that'll help shrink the appearance of your pores and mattify your complexion, too.

    Victoria Kuglin/BuzzFeed

    "Because I have reactive skin, I read a TON about this powder before I tested it, and hearing that it's made of naturally-derived ingredients definitely put my mind at ease. Using it was incredibly easy, too! It's as simple as dipping a wet cotton ball into the product and dabbing it onto any patches of clogged pores or oily skin. I felt it work almost immediately. There's a slight tingly sensation as the product dries on the skin, but I didn't notice any irritation, itchiness, or reaction at all. I left it on for the requisite 10 minutes, then wiped it off with a toner-soaked cotton pad. And y'all. My nose — a breeding ground for blackheads for the last decade — looked brand-spankin'-new." —Victoria Kuglin

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $16.

    12. A rubber broom that'll rid your carpets of pet hair, squeegee your windows, and clean up spills on your floors. Reviewers love that it does multiple jobs and say it works better than any regular broom they've tried.

    Emma Lord / Via BuzzFeed

    "An embarrassing confession: I do not have a pet, but I shed like nobody's business. My hair gets so ingrained in the carpet that a vacuum truly does nothing for it, so I often was just unrooting clumps of hair from the floor with my hands (sorry for the visual). I bought this broom, and it immediately started pulling it up GOBS of hair. My carpet, like, genuinely changed colour (turns out the pink was supposed to be much pinker, whoops). Anyway, do with that semi-horrifying information what you will." —Emma Lord

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $20.09.

    13. A flexible phone mount that'll hold your phone while you click-clack away on your keyboard (perfect if you don't have the desk space for a regular mount). Clip it to your desk and stream Netflix or FaceTime to your heart’s content, hands free.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    "I'm a total klutz when it comes to holding my phone. I can't tell you how many times I've dropped my phone on my face while video chatting with friends and family, even if I use the phone grip on the back of my case. It feels awkward holding my phone up, and my arm eventually gets tired after keeping that position for an hour. But this phone mount was a game changer. The mount is wide enough to clip onto my headboard, and I can use it on different pieces of furniture in my house, like my desk or shelf. Plus, the holder stretches open really wide, so it'll fit any phone." —Kaysey Davis

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $20.99. Also available in white.

    14. A pack of slim satin scrunchies that'll be a luxurious little upgrade from your standard hair ties. Thanks to the soft material, they won't pull at your locks when you're switching up your hairstyle.

    "I love these scrunchies for my curly-frizzy-coarse and dry dry dry hair. I travel in them, sleep in them EVERY NIGHT, and I even wear them out when my hair is dirty and it's ~low bun time~ to dress it up a bit. I have absolutely noticed a reduction in breakage and the strands that cascade to the floor when I take my hair down in the morning for styling. If you're looking for a budget-friendly option to just add a little TLC to your hair care, I absolutely recommend these bbs. And in several months of constant use, there's been no stretching out, even though I have quite a bit of hair." —Maitland Quitmeyer

    Get a pack of five on Amazon Canada for $9.99.

    15. A jar of Neutrogena Hydro Boost Face Moisturizer that's formulated for extra-dry skin and will give your face the moisture it's desperately wanted and needed all winter. One BuzzFeed writer loves how light it is and says that it makes her foundation go on smoother than ever.

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

    "After doing tons of research on the best moisturizers, I kept coming across Neutrogena's Hydro Boost gel-cream. It's only $17 — which is significantly cheaper than other skin care products I've used — so I figured it would be worth a try. SPOILER: It's a godsend. I actually use it twice a day: once at night after washing my face, and in the morning before applying my makeup. No lie, the results are immediate. My matte foundation goes on smoother than ever, and there are ZERO skin flakes!!!" —Kayla Suazo

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $16.97.

    16. A bottle of drain clog dissolver that has over 15,000 positive reviews and will ensure everything is flowing smoothly in your house. From hair to soap to grease, there's pretty much nothing that this stuff can't bust through!

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    "My bathroom sink tends to stop up far too easily and this does a drastically better job of clearing the gunk than other brands. I also love that it's noncorrosive (I live in a pre-war apartment building with old pipes) and odourless (no one loves feeling like a bug being fumigated in their own home)!" —Elizabeth Lilly

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $19.99.

    17. A tube of Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick that'll give you an ultra-pigmented, opaque colour that'll last all day, without touchups. It's totally foodproof, so you won't have that weird patchy look after devouring a slice of 'za.

    Jennifer Tonti / Via BuzzFeed

    "The applicator itself is revolutionary to me; it has a pointed oval shape with a hole in the middle. At first I didn't understand how this was going to help with application but let me tell you, it was a breeze! The hole in the middle holds a bit of product in it and as you swipe across the lips it paints a full-coverage coat in one go. You really don't need a lot either. One thin layer dries down in about a minute. If you really want ZERO stickiness all day, a hack I learned is to take a thin tissue paper and lay it across your lips and then take a brush with setting powder and go right over the tissue with it. Your lips will be set (but not too dry!) ALL DAY." —Jennifer Tonti

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $9.96+. Available in 34 colours.

    18. A durable, plush dog ball, so that you an your four-legged friend can play fetch indoors, without messing up your floors or furniture. It's durable enough that your pet's chompers won't bite through the material when they're in a destructive mood.

    Sarah Aspler/BuzzFeed

    "We can play fetch inside without worrying about knocking over everything on the coffee table. It’s super light, colourful, and honestly has lasted way longer than I expected it to. But the best part? This ball is BIG, and unlike her other tennis balls, it can’t roll under furniture. If you’re a dog owner, you know how annoying it is to keep having to get on all fours and find their ball after it disappears under the bed or TV stand. It quickly became my dog's favourite ball, and now she carries it around everywhere." —Sarah Aspler

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $9.98.

    19. A pack of light-dimming stickers that you'll want to stick on all the electronics in your bedroom. LEDs are still visible through them, but they'll block the annoying flares and glares.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    "When it comes to sleeping, my motto is 'night's out, lights out.' All of them. My reaction to even the faintest of lights is very similar to a vampire being exposed to the sun: not cute. But I have a bunch of devices in my room that blink and glow during the night! My fan, my air purifier, my computer screen, and my air conditioning unit are just a few that I can list off the top of my head. Buying these light-dimming stickers was the best money I've spent in a while. I just popped them onto my devices and the lights were instantly duller. They come in a variety of different shapes and sizes, making it easy to find the perfect one for each device. I can still see that the lights are on, but they're not nearly as annoying." —Kaysey Davis

    Get a pack of 100 stickers from Amazon Canada for $7.89.

    20. A bottle of Design.Me Puff Me volumizing mist that'll give your 'do the extra oomph it needs when it's falling flat. It won't make your strands sticky or greasy in the process, so you won't need to wash it out every night.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca, Victoria Kuglin / BuzzFeed

    "Unlike regular texturizing products, it pumps out a dry, ultra-fine textured dust using a precision-tip pump, so you can get volume and texture right where you want it. And since it's not aerosol, there's never that awkward sticky-hair-drying-period (anyone who's ever used hairspray knows what I'm talking about). Even when I cut my hair shorter, it was the only thing I used to give it some oomph. People literally cross the street to tell me that my hair is awesome, and I wish I could take credit, but without this magical volumizing product, my look would definitely fall flat." —Victoria Kuglin

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $19.92.

    21. A jar of cult-favourite bentonite clay mask that will suck every last bit of gunk out of your pores in under 20 minutes. You can also use it as a spot treatment, if you don't want to cover your whole face.

    Using it is simple: you mix the powdery clay with equal parts water or apple cider vinegar (I like to do a combo of the two), and apply it to your face as you would any other face mask. Check out more epic Aztec Secret before and after photos.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $19.45. Also available in a larger size (for less than $2 more!).

    22. A set of gigantic cube and sphere ice moulds that will keep your cocktails and iced beverages extra frosty, and look cool doing it. They melt slower than smaller cubes, so you won't end up sipping on a watered-down, diluted drink.

    Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

    "I've gotten into a handful of new hobbies during quarantine, but above all, I've become obsessed with making cocktails at home. Unlike normal ice cubes that quickly melt and leave your drink tasting watered down, these giant ice cubes keep your cocktail delightfully cold, and they remain intact while you sip. The square moulds take about two seconds to fill up and place in the freezer. The spherical cubes take a little bit more finesse in order to make them perfectly shaped, but the set comes with a funnel to make filling them up easier. Because the moulds are made of flexible silicone, the giant ice cubes quickly come right out with no fuss." —Hannah Loewentheil

    Get a set of two on Amazon Canada for $16.99.

    23. This budget-friendly Wet n Wild lippie that is buttery smooth and won't break the bank. It's packed with macadamia nut oil and aloe to keep your pout hydrated and free of flakes.

    Shanice Bland / Via BuzzFeed

    "Love this colour Mink Brown by Wet n Wild! I've seen their cosmetics all my life in the makeup sections of big superstores, but never thought to try it. I now have to take another look because this colour really compliments my skin. I'm feeling this shine that the colour brings and love how I can wear this to work or out at night. And let's not forget about that affordable price! Shout out to you, Wet n Wild!" —Shanice Bland

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $5.17.

    24. An avocado slicing tool that splits, pits, and slices. This handy little gadget will save you from incurring any avocado-related injuries and make whipping up a batch of guac or avo toast a cinch.

    Sarah Aspler / Via BuzzFeed

    "The plastic blade dug right in and it was really easy to cut all around the avocado. I actually knicked myself with the blade (because it was so slippery) but it didn't cut my skin or hurt at all. Taking out the pit is easy and, honestly, I wish I could do this for hours. I didn't need to use a lot of force to get the three spikes into the pit and it came out with a twist. Scooping out the avo looked to be going perfectly at first, but got difficult near the bottom of the avocado. TBH: It probably would've been perfect if I left my avocados to ripen for one more day." —Sarah Aspler

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $13.49. Also available in white.

    25. And finally, a tube of Cosrx gel cleanser that'll leave your face feeling squeaky clean, without getting rid of its natural oils (you need those)! It smells a little medicinal, but it works actual magic when it comes to getting gunk out of your pores.

    Alice Prendergast / Via buzzfeed.com, Sarah Han / Via buzzfeed.com

    "Even though it's a gel, it does foam up! Which I love! I like to rub it in my hands before applying it on my face. It's super light and easier to work in and go to town with a lil' massage than, say, a creamy cleanser. I tend to get some breakouts when I travel, and I really think the betaine salicylate and tea tree leaf oil has helped kept my pores clear and prevented breakouts from popping up." —Sarah Han
