    30 Products For Anyone Who Wants To Be Done In Less Than Ten Minutes

    An oven with no burnt food bits? And no scrubbing required? Sounds like a dream.

    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. Schick Hydro Silk Touch-Up Razors let you bid adieu to the time required for plucking. This rids stray brow hairs and unwanted peach fuzz with just a few swipes, meaning trips to the salon or a dangerous rendezvous with at-home wax are officially a thing of the past.,

    Promising review: "This is a 100% painless and incredibly easy alternative to waxing or plucking. A few quick swipes gets rid of peach fuzz and I never have to worry about breaking out because of it. Also, it doesn't make hair grow back coarser or darker." —Ellen R.

    2. A set of oven liners to save you the heartache (yes, heartache) of burnt roast chicken bits — the kind that will require a minimum of seven scouring pads and so. much. backache. Consider that time-consuming cleaning step all but gone.


    Promising review: "I got tired of cleaning the bottom of my oven out after every drip and spill, or running the 'oven clean' option, which uses up so much energy and makes my house HOT during the process. I used to have foil on the bottom of the oven to help with spills, and that improved things greatly — but then you have to replace the foil after a while. I had to cut them to size, which was easy to do with a simple pair of household scissors. Then I placed them in the oven (they look nice!), and I waited for it to get messy. I cooked something super messy and finally needed to clean the liner. It was SO easy; I put it in the sink and used my sink sprayer and everything immediately slid right off the liner. No problem! I have a double oven, so I was glad this pack came with more than one. I have one in each oven and one on standby in case I need it. I know that having a dirty oven isn't the worst thing in the world, but if it matters to you, try these!" —Hpg

    3. A no-scrub Wet & Forget cleaner to make "cleaning" as easy as one, two, spritz. This no-rinse product should be used weekly to keep your shower free of mildew, which basically means it will take all of two seconds to feel like you've deep-cleaned the place in which you bathe.


    Promising review: "This stuff is excellent. It performs as promised, it has a very nice scent, no fumes, and leaves shower clean with no scrubbing actually necessary. It is very easy to apply and rinse off. It is designed very well, with squirting spout separate from the large container and attached by a longish tube, so you don't have to hold the heavy container while applying the product. I've been using it for quite a while now, and I love it. I highly recommend it." —Stephanie Martin

    Get it from Amazon for $17.97.

    4. A Shark Tank rapid ramen cooker for the beginner chef who refers to buttered toast as gourmet. I get it! I hate cooking! It sucks the life out of me! But that's okay, because all this cooker requires is noodles, a microwave, and about three minutes of your time — a delicious meal is now yours for the 'gram.

    Promising review: "Don’t think this is another unnecessary product. If you are an avid ramen eater, you will absolutely know you did not waste a penny with this. Ditch the pot! And if you have already been microwaving your ramen, then ditch your previous bowl. No more burning your fingers to grab it out of the microwave or guesstimating how much water to add. The handles and fill line are so convenient. So easy to add in veggies, meats, and eggs. A perfect bowl every time!" —DoughertyKrafjack

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

    5. A microwave steam cleaner to finally (and I mean finally) rid your microwave of the caked-on dinner that's been there since about, oh, last year. Simply fill this handy device with vinegar, let 'er run for five to seven minutes, wipe, and done.


    Promising review: "I was skeptical about buying this at first, but it's AWESOME. It works like a charm! Super easy to use and does exactly what it says. It made my microwave look brand-new again!" —Lisa

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    6. A Vivienne Sabó volumizing mascara that'll upgrade your lash game with a clump-free, cruelty-free, smudge-proof formula. Just one coat will make you feel as if you ~actually tried~ this morning, sans heavy foundation or a ton of time.,

    This is very likely the last mascara brand you'll ever want to purchase because of how freakin' well works to really 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

    Get it from Amazon for $9.35.

    7. A stainless-steel slicer so that you can cut up your 🍉 favorite fruit 🍉 without googling "how to properly cut a watermelon." This one tool cuts up perfectly symmetrical watermelon cubes every use, saving you tons of time and several tears shed.

    This slicer also comes with a melon baller scoop! I love free gifts with purchase.

    Promising review: "This tool is so handy!! I hate cutting watermelon and this is so fast and easy to use and wash. I cut a watermelon in less than five minutes with this thing. The included baller is also great for the small leftover, hard-to-reach places." —Andrea Draine

    Get it from Amazon for $8.77.

    8. A one-line-a-day journal for anyone who would love to sit down and journal on the daily, but let's be realistic here — you probably won't. And that's fine! This little blue book encourages you to sum up your day with just a line or two for five years...


    ...meaning you'll be able to compare where you are right NOW to where you were last year, on this specific date, on the dot.

    Promising review: "You will never regret buying this journal. I have always been a huge proponent of journaling. I journal everyday. I reread my old journals weekly. I love writing. This journal is a great way to ease yourself into journaling if it is an idea you’re exploring but are nervous to completely delve in. It is a huge commitment; I won’t lie, I occasionally go a few days without writing a few words. But being able to compare the years throughout your life is amazing. I wish I’d been doing this since I learned to write. If you’re thinking about getting this journal, do. It is my most prized material possession." —Samantha Bone

    Get it from Amazon for $11.79.

    9. A handheld electric milk frother that makes it easy to whip up your very own, typically very expensive drink at home — and quickly. This stainless-steel whisk truly has so many darn uses: Let your mouth water at the thought of cappuccinos, lattes, hot chocolate, matcha, milk shakes, and more.

    It's battery operated — just run it in some soapy water for an easy cleaning!

    Promising review: "Love this little thing! I have every thing you can think of at home for making coffee and espresso... Well I love the Starbucks pumpkin cream cold brew with foam. I set out to make my own. Well I can now make cold foam thanks to this little tool. Love it!" —Gav's mama

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in five colors).

    10. A reusable Revlon oil-absorbing roller stick made with volcanic stone to give greasy T-zones a permanent boot. Quickly whip this out between Zoom meetings for a shine-free forehead that required no annoying setting powder ~or~ any mattifying primers.


    Promising review: "This rolling device is like pure magic. Or voodoo?! You simply roll it around your oily areas and BOOM the oil magically vanishes into the ball never to be seen again! This is an item that #tiktokmademebuyit for sure! I saw a video on TikTok and immediately went on the hunt only to be disappointed that this item was sold out everywhere! I eventually got added to a waiting list here on Amazon and once they had it in stock again, they charged my card and sent it my way! If you have the chance to purchase this and you have oily skin, get yourself on the waiting list if you need to and just kick it until it shows up. You will be pleased. Thank me later." —Veronica Cooper

    Get it from Amazon for $9.98.

    11. A twist-to-dispense click pen that quickly and efficiently wipes away built-up gunk to reveal a brighter, more breathtaking surface within seconds. Consider this an easy way to make your best friend (re: diamond) look and feel as good as new.

    Promising review: "I worked in a fine jewelry store for several years that sold this product. I was always impressed with the instant shine the diamond stick provided! The brush tip is very helpful for getting under the stones and in the setting where gunk builds up, which reduces that brilliant shine. I recently got engaged and immediately purchased a diamond dazzle stick of my own. You simply brush, rinse, dry and go. I don't feel this product replaces the need to professionally clean your jewelry every now and then, but it does help with the maintenance of that new, shiny sparkle." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $6.93.

    12. Bioderma Hydrabio Tonic Lotion – it takes your nighttime routine from drab to fab with just one extra step and a mere seven seconds of your time: just soak this on a cotton pad and swipe it on post-cleanse. Toners tend to err on the strips-skin-of-moisture side, but *this* wonderful option uses glycerin to guarantee extra TLC in the form of hydration.

    the blue bottle of toner

    Promising review: "Obsessed. My YouTube hero turned me on to this product and my skin is in HEAVEN. I have pale, sensitive, dry skin and this saved me after the winter months in Minnesota made my skin extremely irritated and dry. I can't recommend this enough!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.90.

    13. A lint roller for a grossly satisfying gadget that's capable of picking up every speck of gunk plastered onto your furniture. Bliss = being able to remove the plastered pet fur on your couch within seconds, therefore not having to worry that your black leggings look like they're covered in white dust.

    This particular version is a limited edition doggy design, but you can also get a plain white ChomChom roller.

    Promising review: "This product removes an embarrassingly large amount of pet hair from couch and seat covers, upholstered furniture, car seats, cushions, and surprisingly, clothing. It is easy to use and requires very little elbow grease to operate, making it ideal for seniors. The money you will save on sticky tape refills will pay for this little wonder many times over!" —timekeeper

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95 (also available in a limited edition cat design or the original design for $24.95).

    14. A Glisten foaming cleaner to neutralize the funky odors coming from your garbage disposal (*yuck*). This lemon-scented stuff requires absolutely no effort and two simples steps: turn on hot water, add the cleanser.

    Promising review: "I went on a trip and when I came back, there was this foul odor coming from my garbage disposal (even though we didn’t leave any dishes on the sink) and I tried every home remedy I could think of to get rid of the smell but nothing did. So I turned to the internet and immediately these seemed like the best choice for an okay price. I followed the instructions carefully, and within a minute I saw the foam rise up and then go back down — awful smell FINALLY GONE!" —A.L.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.89.

    15. Complexion Rescue Tinted Moisturizer – it provides broad spectrum SPF 30, hydration, *and* best of all? Coverage. This water-infused formula blurs pores, banishes redness, and evens tone for a Zoom-worthy complexion that doesn't require a damp sponge and blending.

    the moisturizers / Via @bareminerals

    Promising review: "I have very sensitive skin and have limited options for all of my face products. This is the best thing for ME. This product gives me just enough coverage to feel even toned but natural. It doesn’t break me out and in fact I feel like it helps my breakouts clear faster. My skin feels hydrated and looks slightly dewy — not oily or slick. It lasts all day and has the bonus of sunscreen. It’s the perfect product for me and my personal skin needs." —Lnpig

    Get it from BareMinerals for $33 (available in 22 shades).

    16. A portable paw cleaner for when your good boy has decided to wander into the muddiest field on planet earth before trotting all over your freshly-washed living room floors. Just add a little water, put each paw inside to be scrubbed by the silicone bristles, and that's it! Clean paws within seconds.

    Promising review: "Best. Thing. Ever. This product works like a charm. It gets the sand from between their pads, and is gentle enough that even my most stubborn pup tolerates it! I have a terrier/schnauzer that likes to dig, a mini golden doodle that is prissy about her paws, and a standard labradoodle puppy that is still very fuzzy. We have a farm where it is extremely sandy and we stay in a travel trailer. The amount of sand they were tracking in to the camper was driving me CRAZY. It takes me three minutes to clean and dry off all of their paws. Seriously the best purchase I have made!" —Rachel

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in three sizes and colors).

    17. Adjustable clip holders to turn any bra into a no-show racerback. Long gone will be the days of —> put on shirt —> bra shows —> take off shirt to change bra —> put shirt back on again. Not to be dramatic, but these clips will change your life when you're in a rush (which is always).

    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).

    18. An ingenious scrap collector with a wire rim that easily attaches to the edge of your counter top. Consider post-cooking clean-up a true breeze by simply scraping those potato peels and random morsels of rice right into this silicone bin.

    the green bin attached to a kitchen countertop

    Promising review: "I am one of the messiest cooks in the world. When I get done, I usually have scraps around my feet where I have knocked bits of veggies off the counter. I've looked for a long time for something to take care of the problem, but everything seemed like overkill. This container is perfect. It's just the right size. I attach it in front of my belly, and all the stuff that usually hits the floor, goes in the container. Plus, I can wipe the counter into it, empty it in the trash, and pop it in the dishwasher." —Patricia Logos

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    19. e.l.f. Poreless Putty Primer – it blurs pores, mattifies excess oil, and offers light coverage with one swipe! It wears well under foundation, plus is great to slather on when you're pressed for time but want a bright, dewy complexion. This is widely considered an A+ dupe for more expensive primers on the market.

    the poreless putty primer in clear jar with black lid

    Promising review: "Beauty gurus have been raving about e.l.f.'s putty primer, so I decided to give it a try because of the affordable price. Another reason why I appreciate e.l.f. products. At first, when I applied the primer, it did feel greasy on my skin, but after applying my makeup, my skin looked amazing. Not only did this primer minimize my pores. It also kept my oily skin at bay and helped my makeup last throughout the day. I can now say that I found a holy grail and this primer was definitely a product I will keep purchasing." —Pamela

    Get it from Amazon for $8.

    20. A SodaStream that makes it easy to DIY your own carbonated beverage. This turns flat water fizzy in just a few seconds, saving you a) *all* the money you'd typically spend on seltzer, and b) prevents you from wasting a ton of plastic. All in all, a total win.

    Abby Kass / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I drink a lot of carbonated water and now I drink even more! This soda stream is super simple to use — just snap the bottle in place and hit a button. In a minute, you've got a liter of carbonated water. It couldn't be simpler." —JA Hoffman

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and five colors).

    22. An adjustable duster brush great for air conditioners, fans, and window blinds because YES, those need to be cleaned on occasion (the amount of dust that can accumulate there is *cough* genuinely disgusting). And don't worry, cleaning said crevices requires but a few minutes of your time and just a flick or two of the wrist.


    This handy dandy tool comes with five microfiber cloths, meaning you'll be able to clean your whole darn house in one sweep.

    Promising review: "This product is AMAZING! You can clean both sides of two blinds at once and grip them firmly to get ALL of the dust off. Plus, it comes with five covers, so that no matter how dirty your blinds are, you'll be able to finish dusting your whole house! I also love that you can wash the covers and don't have to waste money on refills." —Sarah

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    23. CAKE Beauty The Locks Smith Dry Styling to give your (banana split) ends some much-needed luster — think of this as a waterless conditioner. Argan oil adds shine with none of the weigh-down; coconut and crambe seed oil fight frizz for ~smooth~ tresses that look immune to humidity. Your hair will be taken care of in two seconds flat.


    Promising review: "I don't typically make it a habit to purchase cheap beauty products because I've learned you get what you pay for and I'd rather spend more than waste any.... but I saw a Brad Mondo video in which he reviewed this product and another and I'm like, well, I like cake... I like good hair... I can spare like six bucks... why not? and I did it (YOLO). I am not disappointed AT ALL. I sprayed this on my hair when it wasn't really even in the 'need a dry wash' moment. BONUS: my hair smells like cake." —Lady Nehman

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    24. A pair of of faux leather loafers you can wear in lieu of your running sneakers and voila! You're suddenly a stylish extra on the set of Emily in Paris.

    Promising review: "I adore these shoes. I have had a difficult time with loafers in general: they often do not give the support my feet need even though my heart longs for a good, affordable loafer. Behold, I found these and they are magical! They have such a lovely cushion and the sides of the shoes are so supportive. Last but not least, they look great on my feet." —Sarah Harris

    Get them from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in sizes 6–11 and 32 colors and patterns).

    25. A buffer block capable of turning your nail beds into a clean canvas free of polish stains. 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 (even though they most definitely were not).

    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.

    26. Melixir Vegan Lip Butter reaps all the benefits of your favorite lipstick (READ: intense color) but still delivers a generous serving of hydration with every swipe.

    This lovely formula contains agave, vitamin E, green tea seed oil, jojoba oil, and argan oil.

    Promising review: "I am so obsessed with this! I have had super dry lips lately and have gone through so many different balms, butters, etc and this one is the best. Not only is it super moisturizing and makes my lips soft like butter, but the red velvet tint it has is perfect! I love wearing lipsticks and adding a pop of color to my face and this is my go to. I don’t have to mix it with anything." —Nila

    Get it from Amazon for $12 (available in seven tints, including clear).

    27. Silicone-free L’Oreal Paris Elvive 8 Second Wonder Water Lamellar – it makes good on its promise of shine, shine, shine. This banishes dullness in eight seconds flat, giving your mane all that lustrous hydration and bounce but thankfully *none* of the weigh-down., / Via @lorealparis

    Promising review: "This is the holy grail of hair products. Seriously I need gallons of this stuff! I put it on my hair for 10 seconds and could feel while still in the shower that my hair felt amazing! I usually have stringy ends and after using this, my hair was soft and silky!" —Sky T Block

    Get it from Amazon for $8.97.

    28. A nonslip bristle brush for a safer, more efficient way to clean expensive cutlery (*chest swells with pride at the thought of having a fancy knife set*). A wrap-around design scrubs two sides at once, plus this ultimately saves you money because you won't have to continuously replace torn dish sponges.

    Promising review: "This is a REALLY effective fast cleaner for all your knives. I have a large variety of knives and this really gets me to used them more because it makes cleaning and maintenance really simple. Whether it's a chinese cleaver, a carbon steel chef's knife or even a long slicer, this makes sure you get all the big stuff off your knives quickly so you can just wipe it down to dry with a regular cloth. If you like taking good care of your knives and you don't want to spend a bunch of time doing it you need to buy this. It's efficient, extremely well-constructed and designed (as most Joseph Joseph products are), and a pleasure to use." —Sam

    before, black wood with scuff marks and after, the same black wood with no scuff marks

    Promising review: "I can’t believe how well these work! Much better than I was expecting. I just had my home painted and the painters damaged a fiberboard medicine cabinet when they removed the masking tape. It ripped off the fake wood veneer. These markers completely filled in the ugly spots and the colors blended so well. It looks fantastic now!" —Shane

    Get a set of 13 from Amazon for $9.99.

    30. A four-sided cleaning brush because you're not ready to retire the Ugg boots you purchased seven years ago. Fair enough. This impressive tool removes the annoying scuff marks and salt stains that have invaded your suede shoes, effectively kicking 'em to the curb.
