    1. An organic snout soother because your four-legged bestie shouldn't have to deal with irritated, chapped skin. This is also scent-free and even contains SPF to help prevent sunburn!

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "Well, I have never before been so shocked at the effectiveness of a product. Our 5-year-old Frenchie, Carol, had a nose that was so crusty it was sprouting these long strands of more crust. There was literally crust on crust on crust. The nose had strings of crust. This nose was so crusty and repulsive it was almost beautiful. Her nose might have resembled the rarest, most exotic geode to be mined from the rarest mine in Guatemala. A friend recommended Snout Soother for Carol's repulsive nose. I was worried she would just lick it all off and it wouldn't work. We never imagined she could have a regular, soft, moist nose again. Honestly this product is some black magic stuff! Unbelievable results in three to five days. No one paid me to write this." —Brittany

    Get it from Amazon for $5.95.

    2. A garbage disposal brush so you can deep clean *without* having to brace the grossness that is plate dirt and smelly leftovers. So long forever, nasty odors building up in my kitchen sink.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This product can be a major kitchen product if you have issues with odors in your garbage disposal. We eat a lot of cereals for breakfast and almost all are loaded with preservatives, which are like glue when they get wet. For two years, we could not get rid of a foul odor for more than a day or two. I purchased this as a last resort, but only expecting it to help a little. The first time I used it, I was amazed at how much gunk was brushed away and odor was reduced. " —C. D. Cornett

    Get it from Amazon for $9.20.

    3. A 52 Lists for Happiness hardcover journal filled with prompts that inspire reflection and taking time out of your jam-packed day (because yes, even quarantine is busy) to focus on yourself.

    Emma Lord / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I just finished list #27, write down what you believe in. I am thoroughly enjoying this book. Not only does it make me stop in my day and really think about my answers, but I am finding that I use the lists as conversation starters. Sometimes it can be a challenge to come up with a topic of discussion that doesn't involve politics or our current pandemic situation. By using this book to generate conversation, I am finding that I'm learning more about my loved ones and myself." —Deborah Chaddock Brown

    Get it from Amazon for $10.22 or Bookshop for $15.59.

    4. An embroidery kit for a quarantine hobby that *isn't* Netflix or YouTube conspiracy videos. This includes everything a beginner would need to start: an embroidery hoop, one illustrated linen fabric, an embroidery needle, cotton threads, instructions, and a stitching guide.

    Promising review: "I brought this pattern to make as a Mother's Day gift for my mom and she loved it. Very easy to follow and quick to work on. This was my first experience with embroidery and I was surprised at how easy it was for me." —Bianca Fields

    Get it from 55tree on Etsy for $8.91+ (available in six patterns).

    5. A universal phone mount that's surprisingly sturdy, offers 360-degree rotation, *and* has adjustable side support to make sure your cell stays in place the entire ride.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Best phone holder I've had, and it's cheap. I bought a couple of other phone holders over the years from other manufacturers, and they never worked right, never stuck to the dashboard, never held up the phone when they pivoted, etc. This one mounts solidly to the dash, and is easy to put your phone in, and remove your phone from." —Patrick O'Malley

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    6. Ceiling fan chain pulls to more clearly indicate which one is meant to activate the light *or* the fan. It's time to put an end to that annoying guessing game once and for all.

    amazon.com

    Why they're great:  "Absolutely adorable! They add panache to the fan, and you never have to worry about which pull to choose. The set also makes it easier for me to reach them. They do not get in the way and are a sturdy fit into the original chain. Would highly recommend to anyone." —Scholar Mama

    Get them from Amazon for $6.99.

    7. A mop and bucket set with reusable microfiber pads that scrub away stubborn stains in no time. This deep cleans stone, tile, laminate, hardwood, vinyl, bamboo, cement, baseboards, and drywall with little effort required on your end, plus a 280° swivel head means you can reach *all* those pesky nooks and crannies.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "THIS MOP IS THE BOMB! The handle is extra sturdy and long with nice handle and cushioned grip. The cleaning cloth is thick and does a great job of scrubbing…it took black scuffs and tracked in, sticky dog poop off my hardwood with little effort! It attaches firmly and easily and doesn’t slip around while you mop. The included mop bucket is GENIUS! It holds your mop water, cleans the cleaning cloth when you plunge the mop in and pull it out, and wrings the cloth to your preferred dampness — wetter for harder stuff, medium for regular mopping, and drier for a quick spiff-up." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in two colors).

    8. A HerStyler repair serum infused with vitamin E, aloe vera, and argan oil for shine, shine, and more shine. This lightweight formula brings brittle strands back to l-i-f-e and even tames frizz with a vengeance.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I found this product through a BuzzFeed article for those with frizzy hair and THIS PRODUCT DID NOT DISAPPOINT, PEOPLE! I put this serum through the ringer; I got this to stand up to Bay Area fog AND the nasty, humid heat wave we got a couple of weeks ago. No frizz, no extra curls. Nothing! On top of that, it made my hair super glossy. I'm very impressed. Heads-up though, a little goes a long way. One pump is enough to cover my hair and I have medium-length hair. Also, it can make your hair look oily if you use too much. I do have oily hair so working on my ends first then working to my roots works for me." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    To learn more, check out "Thousands Of People Say This Serum *Actually* Has Helped Their Dry And Frizzy Hair".

    9. A vegan fizzy bath bomb that smells divine (we're talking notes of exotic citrus, lime oil, grapefruit, cardamom, and red berry) and looks worthy of a photo for the 'gram. Plus, it evolves from a storm cloud into a rainbow and I feel like that's the energy I'm really looking for in 2020. Transformation, my friends.

    ZenBathCandiesLLC / Etsy

    Promising review: "I ordered these for my bridesmaids, MOB, MOG, flower girl, AND myself! They smelled amazing and everyone fell in love with them so much, they said they are going to order more for themselves! I wish I could give six stars." —Ashley

    Get it from ZenBathCandiesLLC on Etsy for $6.99.

    10. Vans slip-on sneakers so versatile, you'll start to wonder how you ever lived without 'em. An elastic gore design means they truly conform to your foot, plus reviewers swear that these babies provide comfort, comfort, and more comfort.

    black slip-on sneakers with white sole
    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "This sneaker is my favorite, 'throw-on, and you're out the door' kinda sneaker. You can still be stylish and throw these on and feel confident (and comfortable) walking out. I've also managed to travel and used these as my walking shoes for places like Argentina on cobble stone streets...and they were SO comfortable. And even after all that wear, they're still in great condition. The perforated leather has held up so well: it's thick, good quality leather, but still breathable thanks to the perforation. I'd definitely recommend this if you're in need of stylish walking shoes!" —Divso

    Get them from Nordstrom for $59.95 (available in sizes 5-11).

    11. A lint roller 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.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this product after realizing the Scotch Brite fur-removing sheets have been discontinued. We have three cats and we regularly used the sheets to remove embedded fur from our sofa and chairs. I was skeptical about this product when I bought it and was AMAZED by how well this worked." —jean p godoy

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    12. A tube of Generation G lipstick with a buildable formula to a) give your pout a blotted finish or b) a bold color ready for a night out on the town. Love lipstick but hate putting it on? That's where this easy-to-apply product comes in.

    Maitland Quitmeyer wearing light pink color labeled "perfect 'my lips but better' color"
    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    "If you know me at all, you know that I am a lipstick (mostly a red lipstick) obsessed person. And as someone who is 1 very pale and 2. wears red lipstick usually at least five days a week, when I *don't* wear it, I feel totally washed out. So I'm always looking for a tinted lip item that has a true my-lips-but-better color — and doesn't dry out my lips like my other 'nude' lipsticks tend to do. Enter Generation G in Crush, which has quickly become my go-to for 'no-makeup makeup' looks or when I'm wearing a color (like lavender) that (IMO) just doesn't go with red lipstick as well. You might know that this is a reformulation of Glossier's original Generation G — which I did really love (I had Jam in the old formula!). BUT let me tell you, this is really a new and improved version. The old formula had to be applied a little more carefully, as it tended to bunch up/look splotchy on the lips. This new formula? I can swipe it on without even looking in the mirror and know it looks good. It's a truly *effortless* lip color option you can wear year-round with confidence. It's moisturizing but not sticky, so I also feel like it's great for giving my tired lips a break from the matte stuff day after day. Oh, and it has a lovely (but not overpowering) floral smell that just makes it a treat to reapply." —Maitland Quitmeyer, BuzzFeed Senior Editor

    Get it from Glossier for $18 (available in six shades).

    13. Goody hair pins to give you that perfect ballerina bun in under 30 seconds — because 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 that's it! That up-do is done.

    amazon.com

    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.

    14. A car decal for anyone who refuses to watch conspiracy docs, psychological thrillers, or The Blue Planet with you. Why? They'd rather watch the shenangians going on at Dunder Mifflin for the trillionth time.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love it! Wonderful little decal and fast shipping." —Mona Eisa

    Get it from AnchorMadeLife on Etsy for $5+ (available in 14 colors and nine sizes).

    15. A buttering knife designed with a curved stainless-steel blade to ensure that the corn-to-butter ratio is *chef's kiss*. The edge of the knife is also perfect for cutting into a stick or for scooping a buttery vat straight outta the tub.

    The Grommet

    Promising review: "This is one of those things you didn’t know you needed until you try it. I hate buttering corn on the cob! It's messy, butter falls off the knife, etc. This genius little thing makes it easy. Love it!" —Christa

    Get a set of two from The Grommet for $13.95.

    16. A pair of period-proof high-waisted undies with the ~absorbency~ of up to two regular tampons. These look great, feel comfy, and will keep you feeling dry — way more than the typical stuff you use during that time of the month.

    Get them from Thinx for $38 (available in sizes XXS-3XL and in five colors).

    17. An enzyme-based Puracy spot remover that's tough on blood, armpit sweat, and tears, so it's important not to panic if your favorite top has begun to yellow in the dreaded underarm area. This cruelty-free concoction will brighten it up in a jiffy, proving that not all heroes wear capes.

    amazon.com

    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.

    18. An essential oil roll-on stick packed with peppermint, spearmint, and lavender essential oils. When you feel a migraine coming on (ugh), just apply this to your temples, forehead, and the back of your neck — it'll give you a blast of cool relief that will lessen that pesky headache (and in some cases, get rid of it completely).

    Katy Herman / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I have chronic tension headaches (I am a very anxious person) and this has completely saved my brain. I was worried about using it on my temples and forehead because I have incredibly sensitive skin, but it hasn't made me break out or anything. It's a good level of dilution to not risk skin burns, and the addition of lavender helps calm my anxiety. I use this almost every day, sometimes multiple times a day if I'm really stressed. I've found that extending it down to my traps and behind my ears makes it work even better. 6/5 would always recommend." —E. R. Sutherland

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    19. A bottle of Versed Weekend brightening solution to tone and smooth uneven skin and post-breakout marks with kojic and azelaic acid, AHAs, bearberry extract, and of course vitamin C. Your skin deserves to *always* look as good as though you got a full eight hours of sleep last night.

    This toner is paraben-, silicone-, and sulfate-free, as well as vegan and cruelty-free.

    Promising review: "I have used this every day for about three months and DEFINITELY have seen a difference in my skin! I feel much more confident going out in public without any makeup on. My skin feels so much brighter and noticeably more even! I just ordered another bottle! I cannot recommend it enough." —Kerrie B

    Get it from Versed for $17.99.

    20. An original Casper pillow suited for all sleepers: back, side, or a mix of both. A 100% cotton cover means you won't be sweating throughout the night, a pillow-in-pillow design provides softness and support, plus you'll get a 100-night trial run (with free shipping!) and can return within that time window if you hate it. You won't, though.

    Promising review: "Casper is supportive while remaining soft, feels like a pricey plush down pillow without the feathers. It really is superior to any other brand I’ve tried. I tend to have neck and shoulder pain and with Casper, it really has made all the difference. Worth it." —momof6

    Get it from Target for $58.50 (originally $65).

    Promising review: "We’ve had our Keurig for a few years, and with the exception of using only filtered water and dispensing hot water every so often, we’ve never cleaned the needle or K-cup area. I used three cleaning cups back to back and WOW our machine was dirty! I'm so happy I purchased these! I’ll be keeping up on cleaning these more often." —Heather Garcia

    Get a pack from Amazon for $9.95.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My little one is obsessed with potty talk. All day song about poop and the poop emoji. I got these for her. I set up a weekly prize box and she gets one for good behavior at the end of the week. She loves these. They are colorful, funny, and durable.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have been having trouble with badly cracked heels and I tried Vaseline in my socks overnight, but I would get hot and end up taking them off. These provided great breathability all night and in the morning — my cracked heels already look a million times better. If you are looking for a product that softens your heels and starts working away at those dry, cracked areas immediately, I would recommend these. After wearing them for three days, (and using a pumice stone once in the shower in between), my heels look nearly perfect." —Victor Farrell

    Promising review: "We always have this on hand in the house and I even keep a small travel size in our glove box when we head out to dinner or into the country to do a little wine-tasting. If you are attacked by red wine, no more soda water for you. Just run out to the car, spray on your Red Wine Away, and watch the stain evaporate. Really... in just minutes you will never know that you had ever suffered a direct red wine hit." —William H. Gordon

    Get it from Amazon for $7.94.
