    1. A wood polish lauded by one reviewer as the ~best money they've ever spent~. Trying your hand at furniture restoration has never been so easy: a few drops of this formula is powerful enough to cover even the most unsightly scratches.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I used this to treat a couple of pieces of furniture, one that had only a few scratches, and one that was a train wreck. On the first one, it looked quite nice after applying. On the second one, I couldn't believe the difference it made! The 31-year-old (pine) piece was heavily worn and hadn't seen any real upkeep in its lifetime. After one application, the difference was like night and day. I definitely recommend this product to rejuvenate wood furniture. Like others have said, it doesn't REMOVE anything, but cleans and darkens blemishes so they visually blend in. I've now gone over all the wood furniture in our living room and the overall difference is remarkable." —icheckemout

    Get the darker wood polish on Amazon for $4.82.

    2. A bottle of Mike's Hot Honey to take your taste buds on a all-expenses-paid adventure. This all-natural honey, chili pepper, and vinegar mixture add the perfect touch of spicy and sweet to any meal, aka so long bland and boring dinners that looked more appealing when the YouTube chef made it.

    Amazon

    This Paleo-friendly, gluten-free condiment is truly the cherry on top of any meal.

    Promising review: "I'm in love with this! My entire family (with the exception of my husband, who doesn't like spice) reaches for this bottle of Mike's many times a week. We've tried it on biscuits, cornbread, fried chicken, bacon (AMAZING), and more. Mike's offers just the right kick of heat to balance the delicious sweetness of the honey. I plan on keeping this in my pantry." —MichiganTraveler

    3. A hard water stain-remover so that your faucets and glass doors can finally look squeaky clean. So long, days of staring at my gross shower head that still looks awful despite hours (upon hours) of scrubbing.

    amazon.com

    It can also work on toilets, tiles, shower doors, really anything that's been affected by hard water!

    Promising review: "I’m impressed. I thought the container was small for the price, but a little bit goes a long way. It takes a lot for me to review, but this is worth it. Five years in the hardest calcium filled water and this is the first cleaner to remove it. I’ve tried scrubbing, only to scratch the surface. Every time I fill the water and ice at the fridge, I’m impressed by the result. I could see this working best, right at first." —Joshua N. Dufek

    Get it from Amazon for $19.98.

    4. A deep-cleansing Innisfree clay mask for hitting the reset button on grease and blemishes (ta ta forever, oily T-zone) with an impressive blend of lactic acid and hardened volcanic lava from Jeju Island. ✨ Smoother skin ✨ is at your fingertips — just apply a face mask one or two times a week.

    Sephora

    Promising review: "I’ve been using this mask for years and I’ve never found a more gentle yet effective clay mask. I used to live in a city in China where’s it was super polluted and sometimes I’d use this mask everyday and it never dried me out. I’m 29, with an occasional hormonal outbreaks and doing this two to three times a week has really helped keep my pores in check. One thing I like about this mask is its added AHA. So it clears and smooths the surface of my skin. Just always remember to hydrate you skin after a clay mask and don’t using too many active ingredients (like AHA, BHAs, vitamin C) all in the same routine." —autumnloving90

    Get it from Sephora for $15.

    5. A gluten- and cruelty-free Essence mascara with a clump-free, smudge-proof formula here to get you the most coveted compliment of all time: "Are those your real lashes?" Plus, it costs less than $5. Praise be.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I got tired of breaking the bank over mascara. My sister suggested Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect and I IMMEDIATELY fell in love. It provides dramatic length and great volume. I can honestly say I can’t stop looking at my eyelashes in the mirror every single day because of how awesome they look. Also, it is very long-wearing. I go from an eight-hour workday right to the gym and sweat like crazy...and this stuff doesn’t budge! I love it!!" —Carrie E. Miller

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    6. An OxiClean powder that bids adieu to makeup on white T-shirts, oil stains on your favorite dress, and red wine on your living room accent chair. It's even got the bandwidth to revitalize brickwork, with proof in the incredibly satisfying picture featured below.

    Promising review: "I cannot say enough positive things about this cleaner. My dogs have wrecked the carpet in my apartment, and I had tried everything to no avail — but OxiClean removed all those old dog stains easily!" —Jessie

    Get it from Amazon for $12.48.

    7. A bottle of L'Oreal ~glotion~ for a bright complexion that requires exactly *does double take* zero effort. This glycerin- and shea butter-infused formula is super lightweight and hydrating, while an illuminating tint adds instant glow.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is great for a quick and easy daily look. As a mom of both human and animal children that is constantly on the go, this highlighting lotion is honestly the only thing I've been putting on each day. It makes me feel awake and look like I tried without all the effort." —ALEX

    Get it from Amazon for $11.44 (available in four shades).

    8. Tend solution because ingrown hairs and razor bumps are truly *ahem* the pits. Simply spread this lotion onto whichever body part you plan on shaving (and yes, it's safe for the bikini area) and POOF! Skin irritation and bumps will all but vanish.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is AMAZING. You would never believe it, but it works wonders. One of the worst parts of summer for me is razor burn and chafing/irritation, particularly at the beach when the hair follicles on my legs dry up from the saltwater. This stuff prevents ALL of that. No bumps, no pain, nothing. The best part? It doesn't matter when you put it on. Before you shave, after you shave, even when you're not shaving, going to the beach, getting back from the beach, etc. It just always works." —Claire

    Get it from Amazon for $14.79 (also available in larger sizes).

    9. A tinted brow gel to keep your brows in place while subtly filling them in, immediately giving your ensemble an air of ~I am put together can’t you see my brows look good~. The best part? It's so easy. No expert drawing skills required (unlike your regular brow pencil).

    Ilia

    Promising review: "This is the most natural and easy to use brow gel I’ve come across. The brush is designed to make fill-ins easy... there’s a smaller part that I use to create a subtle line through the middle of my brows and a bigger, plumper end of the brush that can fill and fluff. Color is great, I have deep brown hair that almost looks black. In the past, pencils and other gels have made my brows look unnatural and clownish/drawn on in photos. Happy to report this brow gel does not create that effect even if I apply it with a heavier hand. Will be purchasing this one again." —Janelle W.

    Get it from Ilia for $26 (available in three colors).

    10. A cult-favorite Fanola purple shampoo that nips brassiness in the bud. 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.

    amazon.com

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $13.21.

    11. Miracle-Gro leaf shine for those who have recently found joy in plant culture: Forget sourdough, it's my green thumb that's thrived during quarantine. A spritz of this means shiny foliage with no spots, dullness, or dust.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm gifting a fiddle-leaf fig (which you plant people know was not cheap) and wanted it to look as nice as possible. This Miracle-Gro Leaf Shine really is a miracle. I only used about one-quarter of a bottle and 15 minutes to make my 8-foot tree come alive. It looks beautiful!" —Chris K.

    Get it from Amazon for $5.18.

    12. A Eucerin night cream with a major superstar ingredient: licorice root. Slather this on pre-ZZZs to soothe your complexion and wake up to healthy, glowing skin that doesn't resemble the shade of a tomato. "Who invited you?" —this cream to your natural blush.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have very sensitive skin that gets red and inflamed easily, especially in the cold or after taking hot showers. Most moisturizers only make it worse but this one is a miracle worker! I put it on every night before bed and always wake up without any redness. I also use it before putting on any makeup which helps reduce/eliminate any irritation from the makeup. It's very moisturizing as well and doesn't have a scent, which is perfect for me as a lot of scents make my eyes sting." —julierae9

    Get it from Amazon for $10.91.

    13. Goo Gone adhesive remover for easily getting rid of those stubborn red clearance labels — because a great find at TJ Maxx means nothing if it's plagued with the remnants of a (cheap) price tag.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I used this on my JBL LSR4236P Studio Monitors and it worked very well. For some reason JBL decided to put some kind of weird adhesive on the front of these monitors, which caught every piece of cat hair and dust that touched it over the years. Used this with some paper towels and a little elbow grease and the adhesive came off quickly. The Picture I added: (Left) After Goo Gone (RIGHT) Before Goo Gone." —Andrew

    Get it from Amazon for $8.94.

    14. A jetted cleaner with results so fantastic, they'll both satisfy and concern you: this lures out all the hidden grime lurking in your tub, aka the kind that was absolutely present when you took that last bath.

    amazon.com

    Run your bath, add this jet cleaner, have allllllll the grime come out of said jets, and then wipe down your tub. BOOM! You're done.

    Promising review: "OK, so I am some what of a clean freak and I run bleach through the jets prob twice a month on top of my daily weekly cleaning. And I was skeptical how this product could get it any cleaner than I thought it was. Well I am here to tell you this pic is after the second cleaning with this cleaner!!!! I am a believer and would highly recommend this product to anyone with jetted tub!!" —Momof2greatboys

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    15. A Fenty liquid lipstick that has a weightless, long-wear formula that feels like a second layer of skin. Plus, the "Uncensored" shade is a must-have; if you're looking for the ideal universal red, this one is IT.

    Fenty

    Promising review: "It's indeed longwear. Unlike so many other lip products, you don't have to apply more all the time, not even after eating or sipping a drink. Matte, but doesn't crack your lips. Uncensored is seriously the perfect classic red." —Maya27

    Get it from Fenty for $25 (available in seven colors).

    16. A no-rinse Head and Shoulders scalp treatment to hit the reset button on dryness and itching for up to 24 hours. The unsung heroes in this raved-about product? Coconut and peppermint oil. (Healthy hair starts at the root, i.e. your scalp — give this a try if you've been desperately trying to grow out or strengthen your mane!)

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I saw an immediate difference from my first use of this product. For about two months, my scalp was abnormally and extremely dry and flaky. After one use, I noticed a visible difference. I don't normally write reviews, but this line of products is the real deal! I definitely will be purchasing again." —L. Btlr

    Get it from Amazon for $8.97.

    17. A wine stain remover so you can fix all the accidents waiting to happen, cc: spilling red wine on your white tee. Dinner shouldn't be spent stewing in the remnants of your vino, and that's where this stuff comes in.

    Emily Shwake / BuzzFeed

    This formula even has a fresh citrus scent that'll rid your outfit of any red wine odors.

    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.

    18. A TheraBreath oral rinse that will have you looking up at the heavens, the word "thanks" on your lips. Why? Because this stuff will actually (according to over 11,000 reviewers) get rid of morning breath, Cady Heron, as well as keep your breath fresh for a much longer period of time. That's why.

    This rinse works to neutralize bad odors and bacteria in your mouth, and won't burn your mouth in the process. (I've always hated super strong, minty mouthwashes because they legitimately hurt — but with this product, you don't have to worry about that!)

    Promising review: "Ridiculous claims. And for whatever reason...it works. Yes, it does everything it says it will do. Pour a small portion in a measured cup provided with your purchase, swish in your mouth a bit, gargle as well, and in the morning you can kiss your honey with a clean mouth. NO ODOR, NO SMELLY MORNING BREATH. THIS STUFF WORKS!"—John E. Litton

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $14.57.

    19. An Ecotools makeup cleaner because yes, you need to deep clean your brushes on occasion. Not only are your makeup tools a breeding ground for bacteria (and a pimple apocalypse waiting to happen), but applying foundation with a brush covered in built-up foundation is definitely *not* ideal.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

    This formula is made with gentle, plant-based ingredients that won't damage your brushes OR your skin. Plus, it can be used on any of your brushes or sponge applicators!

    Promising review: "This cleanser is great! It fully removes all makeup from the brushes without leaving them feeling beat up (I'm not the most gentle when it comes to cleaning brushes). I use a thick foundation that soaks heavily into the bristles, but this removed it all. At first I thought it was a bit thin, but after using it, a little bit goes a long way. It has a nice lather, but very nicely and easily rinses out." —Kryssy

    Get it from Amazon for $4.79.

    20. A go-to nail polish available in the perfect red hue and the only color we want gracing our fingertips this fall. Color aside, this formula is vegan, cruelty-free, and genuinely long-lasting — no more chips after .5 seconds of wear.

    21. A Feed-N-Wax polish and conditioner guaranteed to have you crying tears of pure joy. This blend of carnauba and beeswax takes your oldest furniture and makes it look brand 👏 spankin' 👏 new 👏, providing a protective coating while removing every single water mark in sight.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I used this on my grandma's antique dresser to get rid of some water marks, and was absolutely shocked and thrilled at the amazing results. Worth every penny!" —Pantera1014

    Get it from Amazon for $14.15.

    22. A stainless-steel cleaner that will rid your large appliances (I'm looking at you, refrigerator) of all unsightly fingerprints and smudges. This blend of plant-based ingredients will even prevent future smudges from forming and (HALLELUJAH) doesn't leave any streaks behind.

    Psst, this stainless-steel cleaning spray also comes with a handy dandy microfiber cloth.

    Promising review: "When this arrived, I couldn't wait to get it out of the box to use it! It worked like a charm: streak-free and smells amazing! I actually joked with my brother about how you know you're an adult when you get excited about a cleaning product." —Kelsie

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    23. A stain and odor cleaner for when your good boy goes through the whole "rebellious teenager" phase and decides to ruin your newly-purchased Ikea rug. This enzyme-based formula can be used on carpet, leather, hardwood, and upholstery — just a sampling of all the places your pet will probably have an accident on.

    amazon.com

    This cleaner is available in both a fragrance-free and a spring mint option!

    Promising review: "This is fantastic stuff! We have a cat and a puppy and a very light carpet, and lots of hairballs and puppy accidents. I have yet to be disappointed with this spray! It gets everything out, plus the product has a pleasant, clean smell to it. I'm a devoted customer." —James C. Lebrato

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    24. A retinol serum that enlists the help of bakuchiol and chlorophyll, making it gentle enough for sensitive skin (retinol = some pretty powerful stuff). This tackles dullness and fine lines with a vengeance but is *super* unique because it doesn't leave behind redness or irritation.

    model holding pink bottle
    Versed

    Promising review: "I've used other retinols and retinoids over the years, but was always turned off by the chemical smell and feeling that they were harsh on my skin. Not this one! It actually smells nice and feels like it soaks into my skin instead of sitting on top of it. Very smooth, not tacky or sticky at all." —Moxmoxmox

    Get it from Versed for $21.99.

    25. Food grade mineral oil, because your trusty cutting board could truly use a little (or a lot of) TLC. This odorless formula helps restore and protect wood and bamboo surfaces, plus gives it a good deep clean. Go forth and use this on butcher blocks, countertops, knives, and more!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My husband is a professional sous chef and he was absolutely AMAZED with the end result. As many may be able to imagine, our cutting boards are used heavily and frequently. One treatment and the wood grain popped and, aside from visible blade strikes from years of use, our cutting block roared back to a deep and rich-looking wood." —Vanessa Graziano

    Get it from Amazon for $11.29.

    26. A vegan and cruelty-free Handmade Heroes lip scrub formulated with coconut sugar, avocado oil, jojoba oil, and sweet almond oil. The result? Hydrated lips so soft, even the smoothest of baby butts would be jealous.

    instagram.com / 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 $8.90.

    27. A bottle of Solaroil, aka an effective formula that is to your nails what spinach is to Popeye: this stuff will make your nails look Strong with an intentional capital "S." Daily use of this jojoba oil, vitamin E, and almond seed trio will repair your cuticles in no time.

    before and after photo of reviewer with brittle nails and cuticles on left and strong, healthy nails on right
    amazon.com

    Just massage this oil into your nails and cuticles every night before going to bed. With daily use, your nails will begin to grow and strengthen (seriously, just read the overwhelmingly positive reviews) and your ripped-up cuticles will begin to heal/not look completely terrible.

    Promising review: "HOLY GRAIL PRODUCT. All my life, I've had super weak and brittle nails that would instantly break the second they grew out a tiny bit. This oil has changed EVERYTHING!! I’m shocked. I noticed after about a week of nightly use that my nails are growing (fast) and not breaking." —K. Black

    Get it from Amazon for $8.50.

    28. A nonabrasive Bar Keepers Friend cleansing and polishing powder that will destroy years of icky build-up on all of your porcelain, copper, glass, tile, stainless-steel, plastic, and brass. Time to grab your cookware set, folks, because the "after" photos are about to get GOOD.

    Promising review: "As you can see in the photo, it’s safe to say this stuff works. I left it on for a little while, and when I came back, this was the result of less than two minutes of scrubbing!" —Donette

    Get it from Amazon for $5.45+.

    29. A Maybelline liquid foundation for all of the coverage, none of the cake. This may feel thick upon application but quickly melts into your skin like butter, giving for a creaseless finish that also prevents excess shine. Now say it with me: holy grail.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "Holy grail of drug store foundations! It is truly a full coverage and blends into my skin flawlessly." —Excited NEWYORKER

    Get it from Amazon for $9.98 (available in 16 shades).

    reviewer hand holding clear bottle labeled "Trader Joe's everything but the bagel"
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This seasoning blend is just stupidly delicious. My favorite use so far was for making homemade gluten-free bagels. They. Were. AMAZING. I thought I made enough bagels for the a few days, but my family ate them all in 24 hours. This is really fabulous sprinkled on scrambled eggs, too. My nearest Trader Joe's is over an hour away, so happy to be able to order this here." —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $2.99+.

    31. A silicone-free L’Oreal lamellar treatment that makes good on its promise of shine, shine, shine. This banishes dullness in eight seconds flat, giving your mane all that lustrous bounce but thankfully *none* of the weigh-down.

    instagram.com / Via @lorealparis, instagram.com / Via @lorealparis

    Apply this directly to wet hair avoiding the roots, massage it in for eight seconds, then rinse. Effort required = practically zero.

    Promising review: "i have very thin, dry, and damaged hair due constantly dying it blonde. I’ve tried so many hair products and different types of shampoo and conditioners, and nothing seems to really help my hair. BUT this stuff literally is magic. I’ve used it three times and I haven’t seen my hair look this good (shiny, healthy, hydrated)." —Nikki Minnis

    Get it from Amazon for $8.97.

    32. A Truff hot sauce, because you thought pizza was already perfect — but think again. This blend of white truffle, ripe chilli pepper, and organic agave nectar adds extra flavor to anything, from pizza to your morning breakfast sandwich. (It's even loved by Queen Oprah herself and was on her list of favorite things this year.)

    Hannah Loewentheil / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "This is the hot sauce of the gods. It's beautiful. I don't even like to stand next to the packaging because I know it makes me look less attractive. Yes, but what about the taste you may ask? The flavors of this white truffle hot sauce is so complex and tastes differently depending on what you are pairing it with...but without a doubt, it tastes amazing every time. The flavors will dance around your mouth and tease your taste buds with delight." —Blake Driver
