    45 Low-Effort Ways To Have A More Polished Look

    I want to *look* put-together, but I don't want to *try* to look put-together. You know?

    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. Nip brassiness in the bud with the cult-favorite Fanola purple shampoo. The violet pigment in this formula works to wash away unwanted yellow in your 'do, meaning you can extend the time between salon visits meaning you can SAVE A TON OF MONEY. Easy + affordable? Someone pinch me.

    Use this only once a week (for about three minutes at a time) to prevent your hair from turning a slightly lavender shade.

    Promising review: "Finally! A purple shampoo that actually does something to my brassy hair! I have silver-white hair that is exceptionally hard to maintain due to how easily my hair gains brassy tones and how stubborn they are to remove. I've tried a ton of other brands, and none of their toning shampoos will do a damn thing to my hair even if I leave them on for an hour. I normally have to dilute violet direct dyes to make a dent in my brass. It's nice to not have to schedule a chunk of time to mix a batch of custom toner, painstakingly apply it, and then sit around for an hour while it does its stuff. This shampoo actually works really well and can cut a lot of time out of my bi-weekly color maintenance." —Audrey

    2. Give your favorite suede booties some serious TLC (and make 'em looking brand new) by way of this four-sided cleaning brush, which will make annoying scuff marks and salt stains all but vanish into thin air.

    This brush has a welt surface, nylon bristles, an arched half circle brush, and a protruding brush that lets you clean different kinds of suede with no harsh rubbing or scrubbing required.

    Promising review: "BUY THIS THING! I got mud of my new suede boots and thought they were ruined, but this brush completely restored them. I was shocked. I even used it on an old pair of boots from college that I have considered ruined for several years now, and it did wonders on getting rid of the filth on top of the suede. This is absolutely worth getting!" —Gaby Scott

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    3. The manicure you painstakingly complete today should not be chipped by *insert frustrated sigh* tomorrow. This Seche Vite base and top coat duo work in harmony to protect your nail beds from stains while also promoting a shiny, longer-lasting mani that won't be ruined within .5 seconds of wear.

    Promising review: "This set has been a game changer for great quality home manicures. Since using the base and top coat, I regularly get asked where I got my nails done and if they’re gel because they look so perfect! I do my nails on Sunday nights, and before using this set I’d usually be touching up chips by Tuesday night. With this base and top coat, they easily look great through Thursday and sometimes last the whole week." —Ev

    Get this set from Amazon for $10.49.

    4. Wear some no-show socks to prevent clashing fabrics from peeking out over the top of your lace-up sneakers! These comfy bad boys even have a silicone backing on your heel which translates to 👏 no 👏 more 👏 slipping 👏 socks 👏.


    Promising review: "Dang, these are great socks. I wear them with sneakers where I don't want my socks peeking out of my shoes! The secret sauce is the tiny rubber band at the back of the heel. Without it, the socks would continually fall down, ending up in an uncomfortable bunch around my toes. But with the rubber bit, they stay put all day!" —CK

    Get them from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in packs of three, six, and nine).

    5. Slap on a hydrocolloid, tea tree, and calendula oil pimple patch to a) prevent picking, and b) speed up the ~draining~ process of said zit. Another ding ding we have a winner feature is that they're transparent enough to wear while running errands and I promise you that no one will notice.

    I know, I know. You may feel robbed of the satisfying feeling that comes with popping a pimple, but this method is MUCH better because it won't leave a scar. To quote the Beatles, just let it be.

    Promising review: "I love these things! My acne-riddled, hormonal life is made easier by these beautiful little patches. The variety pack is best because the big squares can be cut to size, and boy do they stick! They do what they say. I've had cysts go down without popping. I've popped some (yes yes, I know, don't pick, people!) and patched em, and it'll drain. I've given them to friends who get cysts in the WORST places, and they always go down and definitely takes the edge off the pain overnight. If there's a spot that's weeping, stick one on there and it'll put an end to that." —Renee

    Get a pack of 40 from Amazon for $8.07.

    6. Opt for skinny jeans available in a dark wash, the kind that will immediately help you *look* put-together even if you rolled out of bed a mere five minutes ago. Bonus points: This particular pair is made from a soft, stretchy denim that will make even your leggings feel inadequate.


    Promising review: "These jeans are extremely soft, comfortable, and stretchy. They feel like jeggings when you wear them but look to others like regular jeans! They are a great, inexpensive, basic pair of jeans that you can wear with anything." —KaylaDB

    Get it from Nordstrom for $39 (available in sizes 24-34).

    7. Plain black leggings? Your old high school gym tee? Fancy it up by way of a structured blazer, here to make it look like you put actual effort into your appearance this morning. Snooze? Never heard of it.

    Forever 21

    Get it from Forever 21 for $25 (available in sizes 1X-3X and in three colors).

    8. Avoid expensive trips to the cleaners and banish wrinkles to the pits of HECK with this Downy wrinkle release spray. Not only will it make that white tee look 1000x more crisp, it also eliminates odor if you've just sourced said shirt from the bottom of your hamper. (Which I never do hahahahahha.)

    Just spray a bit of this spray onto a piece of clothing, lay it out for a few moments to dry, and BAM! The wrinkles will have all but disappeared.

    Promising review: "I purchased this because my husband does our laundry and he has no concept of taking our clothes out of the dryer before wrinkles set in. I was skeptical about it at first, but it actually works! I used it on a t-shirt and boom, the wrinkles came out." —Kindle Customer Jackie

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $12.60.

    9. Liquid eyeliner requires exact if you’re a beginner to the whole ~wing~ thing, opt for this L'Oreal gel liner instead! The brush applicator prevents you from picking up too much product, allowing for buildable shading you could smudge to perfection. / Via @lorealmakeup

    ALSO! If you have oily lids, stop what you're doing and order this product ASAP. It has amazing staying power that won't fade, smudge, or budge if your lids are prone to greasiness.

    Promising review: "My holy grail gel eyeliner!! I sometimes lose my better judgement and stray from this liner to try another brand, only to be disappointed. I always come back to this one. First off, I have extremely hooded eyes that pretty much sit on top of my eyelashes. I always do a thick winged liner and this stuff has never transferred onto my upper eyelid like some products do. Also, the staying power is AMAZING. I have left it on overnight (naughty, I know) and my liner is right where I left it, maybe just a tad bit lighter/faded. The gel is very easy to work with, super creamy, matte, and very pigmented." —Sarah

    Get it from Amazon for $7.12 (available in five colors).

    10. Wake up with ready-to-go hair by sleeping in these flexible curling rods, which are pros at giving you the perfect waves...without subjecting your 'do to any more heat damage. My burnt split-ends are already feeling oh so grateful.,

    Just wrap individual sections of hair around each rod, spritz with some hairspray to ensure a longer hold, go to bed, and THAT'S IT! Remove the rollers after your morning coffee and your hair will be set for the day.

    Psst, do you have straight, thin hair and are assuming these won't work for you? Well you are WRONG, because even reviewers with straight and thin hair swear by these things!

    Promising review: "These things are AWESOME. I have very long, fine/pin-straight hair and these curlers give my hair so much bounce. Since I wash my hair every other day, I use these when my hair is dry and leave them in overnight. I was expecting my hair to look like a frizzy poodle mess...but no. Just perfectly wavy curls (although I did brush the curls out a bit with a round brush because I don't personally care for perfect ringlets). The results are awesome!" —Brianna

    Get a pack of 42 from Amazon for $10.83.

    11. Make like Evanescence and bring your hair back to life (😉) with this Neutrogena weekly treatment. This formula combines olive, meadowfoam, and sweet almond extracts to nourish overly-processed tresses and give an immediate dose of healthy shine. Who straightens/fries their hair seven days a week? Not you.


    Leave this weekly mask on for about five minutes, rinse it out, and style as usual. You'll need to use very little product each week, meaning one tub will last you about an entire century.

    Promising review: "This is about the only conditioner that actually makes my hair (which is color-treated, longish, and straight) feel soft and smooth. I just use a dollop, work it into my ends (it may be too heavy to use on the scalp for me personally) and leave it in for a minute or two during my shower. I actually recommended it to a friend whose hair was so dry that she saw her doctor about it, and she was very happy with the results! She even ended up recommending it to her doctor!" —karmabird

    Get it from Amazon for $11.98.

    12. QUIT SNACKING ON YOUR FINGERS. This Mavala Switzerland polish purposely designed to have a bitter taste, the kind that will make even the most chronic nail biter. Less nail biting = stronger nails, faster growth, healthier cuticles, and a longer-lasting manicure.

    Psst, this easy-to-use polish is safe for children over the age of four!

    Promising review: "I am 22-years-old and have been biting my nails ever since I could remember. Today marks 14 days without biting my nails thanks to this product! I found that I would often bite my nails without realizing it, but with this? There is no way you don’t realize you have your nail in your mouth. It tastes absolutely awful, but that’s the point!" —Brandon

    Get it from Amazon for $15.50.

    For more info, check out "This Miracle Polish Just Might Get You To Stop Biting Your Nails".

    13. With a pair of black flats, you’ll be able to throw on any hue/print/style without fear of being stopped by the fashion police — they're pretty much guaranteed to not clash with anything in your closet! I know I know, you usually wear black, but these are great to have just in case you decide to wear some fun colors.

    Promising review: "The more that you wear these shoes, the more comfy they become! I can walk around in them all day, and I get a ton of compliments on them. I usually feel frumpy wearing flats, but that's certainly not the case with these — I just ordered the beige color, and I might get the leopard print. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THESE SHOES!" —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $9+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and 25 colors).

    14. Running low on ~fancy~ things to wear? Transform your little black dress into something completely new (and something you can truly wear every single day) by simply changing up *how* you're wearing it — ideas include layering it with a chunky sweater or slipping it over a button-down.

    Taylor Miller / BuzzFeed

    Get the dress from ModCloth for $59 (available in sizes XXS-4X), a similar sweater from & Other Stories for $49 (available in sizes XS-L and in nine colors), and a similar white button-down from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in six colors).

    15. Exfoliate two to three times a week to prevent all gunk build-up! This vegan Acure brightening scrub (made with argan extract and chlorella) is gentle enough to exfoliate acne-prone skin without causing further inflammation or redness. It's also an absolute 🌟 superstar 🌟 at fading scars!

    Psst, this cult-favorite and cruelty-free product has over 2,000 positive reviews!

    Promising review: "Are you kidding? Why didn't I find this sooner? THIS STUFF IS AMAZING. I'm 34, and never had a blemish... until I hit 30. Hormonal cystic acne has plagued my chin and neck for years. I've tried everything from washes, scrubs, microdermabrasion, facials, masks, even antibiotics as a last resort. NOTHING cleared my skin like this! I've been using this product for only two weeks and my skin is clearing beautifully, plus my old acne scars disappearing. People are making comments about how fresh, young, and healthy my skin looks. Its a small tube, but you only need a pea-sized amount really." —emhart16

    Get it from Amazon for $8.49.

    16. Invest in a go-to pencil dress, preferably one in the most fabulous hue available on the market: BLACK. Prepare to slip this little black dress on for any heel-requiring occasion — from birthday parties to champagne toast galas.


    Promising review: "I must say that I was a little scared to order this online, but it surprisingly fit very well. I wore it to my daughters christening and it was perfect! Definitely recommend this dress and that you order your usual size." —Ashley

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes S-XXXL and in 16 colors)

    17. Use Hem tape to provide a quick fix for all your ~should've brought these to the tailor~ needs. These allow you to shorten long pants and skirts, no finger-pricking sewing needles required.


    Pants bunching up around your ankles = not ideal. Fix that problem in a jiffy with this simple tape!

    Promising review: "This tape did the job for me! I took them on a cruise for two reasons. First, I didn't have time to properly hem a pair of pants and when applied correctly, the hems stayed in place until the adhesive was removed. Second, short socks always slide off of my heels, so I applied the tape to the inside of the socks and no more problems!" —Paule T.

    Get a pack of 24 from strips from Amazon for $5.63.

    18. Obtain the ballerina bun of your dreams by way of these Goody hair pins — just one pin can do the work of up to *20* hair pins. How does it work, you ask? Just secure your hair into a ponytail, pull it into a super tight bun, spin the pins into place, and BAM! You've got yourself the perfect updo.

    Promising review: "I'm a nursing student and have to wear my hair in a bun every day. I've tried all the bun makers, watched YouTube videos, and spend way too much time on getting my hair into a bun. I was able to make a pretty bun that was secure in under 30 seconds. I thought it was a fluke so I did it again, and then again. I just ordered two more packs because I know if I lose one of these, I'd have to tear the house down looking for it. I have hair to my mid back, and three of these worked perfectly for me. If I can get my hair in bun in under 30 seconds, trust me...anyone can." —Tina

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $5.89.

    19. Prep your pout for bold lipstick with this Handmade Heroes coconut sugar scrub. Not only does it smell like summery deliciousness, but it'll exfoliate away all dry, flaky skin that would prevent you from mastering that classic red lip. / Via @handmadeheroes

    This vegan and cruelty-free scrub is formulated with avocado oil, jojoba oil, and sweet almond oil for the ultimate dose of hydration.

    Promising review: "I bought this on a whim and I have no regrets! It smells delicious — like toasted almonds and almond cookies! I use the lip scrub before bed, and I could immediate tell the difference. My lips are smoother and softer, and my chapstick lasts much longer on my lips. I made my husband use it once, and his lips were also much smoother and super soft after just one use!" —Cowie

    Get it from Amazon for $7.90.

    20. Easily dress up even the plainest of outfits by adding some height to the mix! These heeled sandals are here to provide something that not many shoes can: comfort. Because what do we love? Looking like we tried this morning when we, in fact, did not try at all.


    Promising review: "Oh my goodness! These shoes fit my huge, size 11.5/12 wide feet. They are very comfortable, the suede feels soft, the heel height is perfect, and the color is beautiful." —Ariel Yang

    Get them from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes 4.5-11.5 and in 15 colors).

    21. Make an old sweater look like new with a Conair fabric defuzzer, here to get rid of accumulated lint and pilling. Have you already washed and worn this top 98 times? The world will never know because it now looks brand new.

    Promising review: "I don't know how I've lived 34 years without this product! It's a total game changer. I just de-fuzzed every piece of clothing I own, and loved every minute of it! I specifically sought this product for my very expensive Lularoe addiction, which I found were getting rather pilly after only a few wears, and everything is like new again!" —Jessica Grzeskowiak

    Get it from Amazon for $11.87 (available in seven colors).

    22. Start carrying an Invisibobble around your wrist ASAP. This genius accessory will keep your mane out of your face but won't cause any dents, meaning you’ll be able to take your hair out of your pony and BAM! It won’t look as if you had it in an updo for several hours.

    Sarah Han / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I am a hairdresser and I feel like this should be explained better. This is not made to hold your ponytail while you go for a jog. It is strong enough that you could use it to secure a braid. The beauty of this product is that the coils prevent your hair from getting a band mark. Want your hair to have lots of volume in the morning with no bed head? Gather your hair onto the top of your head and loosely secure it. In the morning, take out the Invisibobble and voila!" —Annadj

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $7.88 (available in four colors).

    Read one BuzzFeeder's take on the Invisibobble (#1).

    23. Turn your wrinkled white tee and ripped denim ensemble into one you wouldn't mind flaunting on Instagram. How? Slap on this beautifully-constructed Daniel Wellington watch — the kind of splurge-worthy accessory you'll pass down to your children.

    Daniel Wellington

    This watch is water-resistant, designed with a leather strap, and is guaranteed to get you a minimum of 9,000 compliments (per day).

    Get it from Daniel Wellington for $169 (available in two sizes).

    24. Hasta la vista, pillow smudges! You'll no longer be ruining my carefully applied polish thanks to these OPI drying drops, which layer your mani with jojoba and vitamin e. This creates a barrier that both nourishes and protects your nails whilst they're still drying!


    Promising review: "This stuff is awesome! I'm not sure how I'll be able to paint my nails again without using this stuff! Very simple to use. After applying my top coat I usually just need a small drop on each nail and then I just go lay on the couch and watch some tv or surf on my phone. Am I still cautious after using this product? Yes, but am I able to accidentally brush up a blanket or grab a drink without fear of smearing, smudging or otherwise ruining my newly painted nails? Nope! Worth the cost! I bought this about three months ago and have painted my nails at LEAST twice a week (really hard on my nails, work in surgery so I repaint them all the time) and I still have a full bottle." —Hippos

    Get it from Amazon for $12.83.

    25. Banish blemishes, redness, and dark circles to the pits of Hades with this LA Girl Pro concealer. The coverage is crease-resistant, long-lasting, and absolutely flawless...but it still manages to look lightweight and natural. Repeat after me: Owen Wilson WOW.

    If you're looking to target redness specifically, opt for the green concealer! Just a little product will be able to cancel out blotchiness immediately.

    Promising review: "I suffer from hyper-pigmentation and dark spots, which is why I wanted to try this product in the first place — because sometimes foundation doesn't have enough coverage! So I bought this and OMG, it works! I put it on my dark spots, use a beautyblender to pat it down, and add some foundation to my face with a brush! My dark spots are no longer visible and my makeup doesn't look cake-y. Plus, just a little goes a long way." —jaszyboo

    Get it from Amazon for $5.41 (available in 29 shades).

    26. No time to style your hair? Swipe it all up into a neat ponytail via these seamless Burlybands hair ties. They won't stretch, break, slip, OR damage your mane, nor will you have to halt your workout to fix your ponytail because this band will actually stay in place. If you have super thick locks, meet your new accessory soulmate.


    Promising review: "These are the BEST THINGS EVER!! I've never had a tie that I could wrap around twice — TWICE — and it literally stays in place all day. I have three of these and never lend them to anyone for fear of not getting them back. I'll be buying more of these for sure!" —Mattie

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $10.99.

    27. Perfect for any time, any place, any location, this basic v-neck jumpsuit is here to get rid of all "BUT WHAT WILL I WEAR?" scenarios. Aside from being gorgeous, it's also made of a snazzy wrinkle-resistant fabric that will constantly look as it were just picked up from the cleaners. / Via @everlane

    Promising review: "This jumpsuit is heaven on earth and I want to live in it forever. It's great quality, fits beautifully, is very comfortable, and is easy to take on and off. I also find it breathable which is important since I live in a humid climate." —haymorg16

    Get it from Everlane for $120 (traditional retail for $250, available in sizes 00-16 and in three colors).

    28. No polish = no problem with this buffer block, which is capable of turning your nail beds into a clean, stain-free canvas. It takes just three easy steps; file, smooth, and shine. The result is heathy, glowing nail beds that look like they were given a fresh coat of clear polish (and probably drink a ton of water on the daily).

    Promising review: "I’m completely blown away by this buffer. It’s every bit as simple as the directions indicate. You just follow the steps: 15 seconds of buffing with each of the three surfaces—first the silver, then the green/branded side, then the white. The combination is nothing short of miraculous. My sad nails went from dull with random stripping, to perfectly smooth, clean and shiny as if coated in clear polish. I’m going to order replacement pads now because this is a STAPLE." —HalJ

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    29. Give your complexion a mid-afternoon pick-me-up with an alcohol-free Thayers toning mist. Thanks to an effective blend of rose petal, witch hazel, and aloe, just one spirtz can reduce redness, tighten pores, and control excess oil...all while leaving your makeup perfectly in tact. / Via @thayersnatural

    Witch hazel also works to ~sanitize~ your skin and prevent breakouts!

    Promising review: "This leaves your skin feeling so refreshed and clean. I use it before applying moisturizing in the morning and at night. Just wait until it really soaks in, add some moisturizer on top, and your skin will be glowing!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95.

    30. Try out an enzyme-based Puracy spot remover that's tough on blood, armpit sweat, and tears. So your favorite top has yellowed in the dreaded underarm area? No worries. This cruelty-free concoction will brighten it up in a jiffy.

    It's also tough on tomato juice, red wine, mud, makeup, pet stains (BAD BOY), and any other stains that would put a pretty big damper on your day.

    This toxic- and cruelty-free concoction is made from vegan ingredients that aren't harmful to pets or children. Oh, and speaking of children! If you have a very young child prone to making a mess of their onesie (they'll be potty-trained one day, right?) you'll want to buy this stain remover ASAP.

    Promising review: "I had some super nasty dress shirts that I was about to throw away. No matter how much I washed them, my antiperspirant deodorant was caked up inside the armpits and actually smelled like someone with rank armpits just took it off (not me certainly!?). I put two squirts of this stuff under each armpit and rubbed for about 15 seconds each. Then I tossed all the shirts in the floor for the night, still wet. The next morning, I washed them, took them out of the dryer, and I couldn't believe that the shirts looked and smelled brand new. I love this stuff!" —Don K.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.49.

    31. For anyone trying to extend time between salon visits *or* anyone trying to nix salon visits all together, this John Frieda brunette-enhancing glaze will become proof that not all heroes wear capes. This weekly treatment focuses on maximizing shine for a mirror-like effect while bringing out your natural brown color (and covering up grays).

    Promising review: "I have naturally dark, chestnut hair and I had gotten tired of the expense of coloring in the salon and the damage it was doing to my hair. I spent the last year growing out all the damage from highlights and color. My hair was healthy and shiny, but it started to getting gray! But this provided unbelievable results. Not only did this camouflage the gray hairs by tinting them blonde, but it gave my overall natural color a rich, lustrous shine. This is well worth the money." —Lisa Combs

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    32. Combo skin is the worst of both worlds: you suffer from both dry *and* oily concerns. But thankfully, this Garnier gel-cream will give the dry patches on your skin some sweet, sweet relief, alllll while balancing out the excess oil on your t-zone.


    This formula (packed with vitamin C and antioxidants) feels super cool when it goes on your skin, and is non-comedogenic so it won't clog your pores.

    Promising review: "LOVE this stuff and I have for years, and I'll admit I'm not a fan of most Garnier products. This moisturizer doesn't feel greasy in the slightest, yet it is immediately soothing and it feels like your skin is drinking it in. You can wear it under makeup during the day or at night. I can't say enough good things about this product! I'm 43 and still get hormonal acne every month, and this product has never made it worse, and has actually helped clear it up when my skin, despite the pimples, has gotten too dry due from astringents and other facial cleansers for oily skin." —Maria

    Get it from Amazon for $6.29.

    33. For your nine to five (*hums to the tune of Dolly Parton*), your pants should feel like they're tailored specifically for you — which is why these high-waisted skinnies belong in your wardrobe, like, yesterday. These are available in petite, regular, and tall sizes to ensure that they fall *right* at your ankle.

    Old Navy

    Get them from Old Navy for $25 (originally $29.99, available in sizes 0-20 and in eight colors and regular and tall lengths).

    34. Create the *chef kisses fingers* perfect part with this pin tail comb. Long gone will be the days of zig zagging, criss crossing lines on your scalp that look as if the wind had no mercy.


    This comb is also great for people with thin hair! If you want to tease your mane a bit for extra volume, this is the perfect tool to do so.

    Promising review: "Love this comb! It's good quality and helps me get that perfectly centered part every time. The metal end helps me keep it in line with my nose, and the little cover it comes with is nice, too, because it keeps the pointy part covered and safe while not in use." —Hanna

    Get it from Amazon for $4.79.

    35. Condense your many brushes into one product — specifically into a blending sponge. This squishy BB can be used for everything from concealer to setting powder, all while providing a natural finish that is (*IMPORTANT*) not blotchy. It truly blends everything to perfection so that you don't have spots of cake-y, oompa loompa orange scatted across your cheekbones.,

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these! They're soft, sturdy, very easy to clean, and blend my makeup perfectly. My makeup doesn't look caked on and the sponge doesn't absorb product like many of the blenders I've tried before (and I've tried a lot). I'll definitely be buying more!" —lupe

    Get a set of five from Amazon for $8.99.

    36. Get rid of those dreadful white marks with this deodorant sponge, a nifty tool that only requires a few quick swipes to make your black tee will look fresh out the dryer. Deodorant: so necessary because we smell, so annoying because it stains everything it touches.


    Promising review: "Love these gal pals!! Have been using them for about 15 years now, and they're great at removing deodorant stains from your clothing. They worked exactly as described!" —Val D.

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $8.

    37. Turn your favorite bra into one that won't be visible under your racerback top with these adjustable clip holders. They'll even keep your straps from slipping off your shoulder AND gives your breast friends some extra lift.


    Promising review: "My bra straps spend more time off my shoulders than on — but NOT ANYMORE. I was hoping something like this existed and when I found it, I was so happy. They're as glorious as I expected them to be. These are life-changing." —Amanda

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $6.97 (available in six colors).

    38. Enlist the help of this leather cleaner to save your favorite purse from looking like it's been worn approximately one million times (even if it has, in fact, been worn one million times). This easily gets rid of surface stains and thankfully doesn't require a ton of elbow grease.

    Promising review: "This cleaner took off years of jean stains on my leather purse. I’m not going to lie and say it didn’t require a couple hours of constantly rubbing circles with the cloth to get my purse looking like this, but just turn on a movie and get to work. I’ve tried other cleaners and nothing has ever worked this well." —Bailey

    39. Upgrade your lash game with a clump-free, smudge-proof Vivienne Sabó volumizing mascara. One coat gives you the whole "your lashes but better" look, but two coats? Everyone will just assume you're wearing falsies. It's that good.

    This is very likely the last mascara brand you'll ever want to purchase because of how freakin' well it works to separate and thicken your lashes.

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE this mascara. I have very sensitive eyes and holy moly, I'm in love. I've found my new favorite mascara! It makes my lashes look longer and it looks the same all day long. Plus, it doesn't smudge during the day. It's wonderful and a total must-buy!" —Katherine Ochsman
