    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 8 hour work day 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.

    2. An Ecotools makeup cleaner because YES, you need to deep clean your brushes. 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? Not ideal.

    amazon.com

    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: "I originally got this to clean my beauty blender, but I used it to clean my brushes as well! This takes the cake for the best brush cleanser I've ever used. I didn't have to do any scrubbing or anything — each brush took about a second each and suddenly my hundreds of brushes were clean in the blink of an eye! I keep my brushes clean now, and I never thought I would be 'that girl' who always had clean brushes...but alas, here I am, sitting on my high horse thanks to Ecotools. It even smells nice!" —Rebecca

    Promising review: "I have to admit, my expectations weren't very high. I thought it was more of a joke when my husband got this for me for Christmas. Little did I realize that it would become one of my favorite gadgets ever! I don't know if I realized just how many things went missing in my seat gap. It has really saved a lot of things from disappearing into that black hole. It was easy enough to fit into my car and it's soft, acting just like an extension of my seat. There really isn't another product that compares to this." —Tessa Forbes

    6. Bottle Bright cleaning tablets to quickly remove all that funky, gross, probably-starting-to-smell build-up in your favorite water bottle. These are biodegradable, chlorine-free, and require absolutely NO effort or scrubbing, but will make your water bottle look as if you've just brought it home from the store.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug and I tried everything, but there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. It grossed me out so much that I bought ANOTHER HydroFlask to replace it. Now eventually they both got black inside, so I tried these little magic tablets. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY without any scrubbing necessary. They look brand new and there was no weird smell or taste afterward, either. Absolute magic!" —Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of 12 tablets from Amazon for $8.

    7. Reusable bamboo towels that are great at wiping up spills, saving you a ton of $$$ (they last for up to six months and can be thrown in the wash when dirty), and cuttiing down on waste because you won't have to purchase more paper. So in other words, a total win.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've had these bamboo towels for a month now and am incredibly impressed with their performance! They're much larger than a regular paper towel, thicker, softer and more absorbent. I've washed the first ones I've torn off the roll several times now and they DO survive the laundry and perform just as well afterward. I've only used five bamboo towels this month, washed them and re-used. Several times. I would have been through a whole roll of paper towels by now." —A.Clark

    Get 20 sheets from Amazon for $9.99.

    8. Bioderma micellar water that tackles both makeup and excess oil in the laziest way possible: with just a few swipes of a cotton pad. Not only will this gentle formula leave your skin feeling refreshed, but it'll *also* prevent excess shine from creeping in mid-afternoon (at about the same time you're in desperate need of caffeine).

    instagram.com / Via @biodermausa

    Promising review: "I know micellar water is usually advertised for taking makeup off, but this has been the best thing I've found at keeping my oily skin at bay — and I've tried a lot of stuff! My skin is so oily that by 6PM, I have visible shine and go through about three oil-absorbing wipes just to get rid of it. This has made a remarkable difference! I use it once at night before bed and in the morning before applying moisturizer. I'm addicted. Also, I should note that I am acne-prone and this does not bother me." —BoyWonder

    Get it from Amazon for $5.90+.

    9. Affresh dishwasher cleaning tablets because HOW can you get clean, glistening dishes if the dishwasher itself is *gag* covered in grime? Answer: You can't. These babies are here to help.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Works extremely well. We haven't done any cleaning on our dishwasher in five years, and the sliding dish trays were tough to pull out or push in, there was detergent build-up all over the inside, and there was a milky film on all our cups. I bought Affresh, ran the dishwasher with two tablets while it was empty, and the difference was astounding. There was still some build-up and I figured it would require another cycle, so I popped another two tablets in, ran the machine a second time, and now it looks and sounds brand new. No more film on the glasses, no more dirty dishes from clogged sprayers, no more odors." —Martoune

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $4.34.

    10. A laundry board capable of folding your entire wardrobe with precision, ensuring that everything looks beyond tidy in your drawers and closet. Let's all wave a collective goodbye to the wrinkled t-shirts stuffed into our dressers.

    amazon.com

    This board is super easy to use! Just lay the board flat (with a tee, towel, pants, whatever, on top) and simply flip the left side, then the right, and that's it! You're done! Plus, this works perfectly for not just clothes, but also linens and towels.

    Promising review: "My first reaction was 'Why did I buy this?' Then I gave this a try with a couple shirts I had just washed and next thing you know, I simply had to do my entire drawer! Everything folds so neatly and easily with this thing. I still couldn't believe it, so I ended up organizing our bedsheets and towels. I am amazed at how much of a game changer this is. Must try! Am in love on how beautiful it left my clothes." —Jesus Antonio Vedia

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in five colors).

These blotting sheets are much better than the ones you get at the drugstore, and I only need to use one sheet for my entire face (as opposed to the two sheets I need to use with other brands)." —Boa C.

    Get a pack of 200 from Amazon for $11.35.

    13. A twist-to-dispense click pen for when your best friends/diamonds are beginning to look dull. This formula will wipe away built-up gunk (a result of lotion, soap, etc.) to reveal a brighter, more breathtaking surface.

    amazon.com

    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 $5.49.

    14. A Downy wrinkle-eliminating spray for the person who doesn't feel like showing up to a business meeting with a wrinkled outfit, but also doesn't have time to iron.

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $12.60.

    15. 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: "This stuff is AMAZING. If you are a fan of nail art, or just a messy painter, this is a must-have! You only need one thin coat on the finger and it peels off, taking the messy polish that is off the nail plate with it. Simply paint this onto skin surrounding the nail and wait for it to dry. When the product changes from white to clear with glitter, it is ready to be used. Paint your nails as desired and then remove the latex." —GeekyKiki

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    Promising review: "I bought this because of the low price, but it is AMAZING! It smells heavenly, it clarifies my scalp thoroughly, and definitely gets rid of build-up. I use it once every two weeks. You HAVE to follow up with a very moisturizing deep conditioner, let it sit for a while then comb through your hair. It's a new staple for me." —NickyC

    Get it from Amazon for $5.28.

    25. An adjustable blind cleaner because YES, you do have to clean those on occasion (the amount of dust that can accumulate there is *allergy cough* wild). This is also great for air conditioners and fans!

    amazon.com

    This vegan and cruelty-free dry shampoo doesn't contain any talc, parabens, or baking soda (hooray).

    A personal note: As someone with thin, greasy, flat hair, I can confidently say that powder dry shampoos are so much better than aerosol ones. Like, they actually make your hair look freshly-washed.

    Promising review: "My hair is ALWAYS oily at the roots and aerosol cans of dry shampoo make my hair stiff, but this stuff...this stuff is amazing! Adds volume, doesn't completely dry out my hair, and does not leave residue or build- up (I have black hair so this is very important). Also, my hair smells super fresh after using it. Would give more stars if I could!" —Gabriela

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    27. An antimicrobial silicone scrubber that will banish the filth lurking in your kitchen sink: mold and mildew, my friends. Unlike the sponge you're currently using to wash off your dinner, this peach-scented option *isn't* a breeding ground for bacteria.

    amazon.com

    Each scrubber keeps mold and mildew away for at least three months, meaning you'll have to replace these babies significantly less than you would a regular sponge.

    Promising review: "I love these as an alternative to other sponges. Except for the faint scent they come with (which fades over time), they don't smell at all. You can tell that the soap is completely out once you're done washing the dishes, unlike wth a regular sponge. I don't worry about mildew, mold, or gross bacteria hiding in the nooks and crannies. I've used three in about six months and I definitely could have stretched them longer." —M

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $9.95.

    28. 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.

    amazon.com

    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!

So you really, really want to add a tongue scraper to your daily dental regimen. You'll feel a lot better just knowing that gunk isn't in your mouth anymore. Just get this!" —The_Chief

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $12.95.

    31. A lint remover capable of picking up every speck of dust, dirt, and pet hair plastered onto your furniture. This means that you can get dressed, sit on your couch to drink your morning coffee, and leave the house with peace of mind knowing your outfit isn't covered with a layer of fur.

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my crazy cat-loving life? Sticky rollers work fine for clothes but this is the only product that has ever COMPLETELY removed all the cat hair from my bed. I have a long-haired 20-lb. tabby and if you run your hands up his back a few times and fling the hair everywhere, it looks like it's snowing – he never stops shedding no matter what I do. After using this, I can put on a black dress and roll around on my bed and not get a single hair on me. It's absolutely amazing. Everyone is getting one for Christmas, even if they don't have a pet. I don't care, it's THAT good." —Stephanie

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    amazon.com

    Just add water to the sponge before proceeding to scrub away at any dirty surface.

    Promising review: "I never thought I'd be able to get the weird pink soap stains out of my tub. Picture someone scrubbing with cleaning products until their arms were sore, to no avail. But this worked with no effort! It's unbelievable. Please never let this go off the market!" —Catherine King

    Get two packs of four from Amazon for $9.39.

    34. A Schick dermaplaning razor sent from heaven for people who are done with the pains of plucking and the expense of waxing.

Just add a little water, put each paw inside to be scrubbed by the silicone bristles, and that's it! Clean paws within seconds.

    amazon.com

    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).

    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.

    40. A paint restoration kit to make your car look like it was just driven off the lot, even if you happened to back into a pillar and now there's *nervous giggle* some purple paint on your door. This cleanser and buffer pad duo will touch up your paint and save you several hundreds in the process.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I turned too sharp in a parking ramp and my back door scraped along a purple pillar in the ramp. This happened a good year ago and I never got around to taking care of the ugliness. My husband gave me so much crap and so I finally came across this product, read the reviews, and ordered. It only took me about 20 minutes of elbow grease to get my after results! It did, however take a lot of elbow grease. Don’t waste your time and money at the dealership. This product saved me over $500!" —S.R.

    41. Shadow shields to help you achieve a perfectly even smoky eye while avoiding the dreaded ~raccoon eye~ effect that comes from that grey shadow you love so much. These nifty little adhesives will collect all that fallout AKA you won't have subtle of smudges of shimmery brown sprinkled across your cheeks.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These shields are just the best! I am someone who does my foundation and concealer before I do my eye makeup. I like dramatic looks, which is often the culprit of the dreaded shadow fallout. Problem solved! Not only do these catch fallout, but they allow for crisper and more even lines on both the bottom and sides of my eyes. Side note, I have almond eyes and they are a bit big, but the shield still covers the entire area that they need to!" —Carolyn Rome

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Best purchase I’ve ever made. Literally so convenient to have so many of these for such a cheap price! Absolute lifesaver. Also, I know it’s trashy, but just an example of another one of their uses — you could loop some of these together and make yourself an 'emergency belt' and it would work wonderfully." —Abacus

    43. A batter dispenser that will turn the mess of baking (READ: take a moment to picture all the cupcake mix droplets scattered around your kitchen counter) into a much easier process. Simply pour in the batter, squeeze the lever, and bam! All of your baking mixes — everything from pancake and brownie to to crepe and muffin — will have been dispensed in a pinch.

    amazon.com

    This dispenser is especially effective for Saturday morning pancakes (it helps create the perfect circle), can hold up to four cups of batter, and has a measuring label built in.

    Promising review: "Love love love this baking tool. Just bought it, just made cupcakes, and cleanup was beyond easy! Typically I loathe making cupcakes with my kids because there's lots of cleanup involved — spoons falling into batter, batter all over cupcake tin...but not with this dispenser! I even let my youngest (four-years-old) pour the batter in the cups and it didn't make a mess at all! This is definitely going to be a staple in my baking line up. I am almost tempted to buy one more, just in case I never see it again!" —Dave

    44. A honeycomb organizer to prevent your intimates drawer from morphing into a junk drawer. Prepare for Aerie undies that will ~spark joy~ every time you see how neatly folded they are.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I really wasn't expecting much out of these but to my surprise, these are a huge improvement over my old ways! I like these so much that I have made three separate orders of multiple boxes. They're not too high, the area inside is just right for a pair of winter socks (or two pairs of thinner socks) and underwear. Even my picky, picky daughter is using them." —Linda Elaine

    45. Arm & Hammer moisture absorbers here to keep musty scents at bay in your closet.

    amazon.com

    One bag alone lasts 60 days!

    Promising review: "This works wonders! I had a bedroom that smelled so musty and moldy that it took my breath away, even after several rounds of thorough cleaning and disinfecting. This completely eliminated the odor within a few days!! I have had success in every area I have tried this product in where nothing else had worked. It not only removes the moldy smell, but the area actually smells fresh!" —M Cook

    46. A pumice cleaning stone capable of removing calcium, lime, and hard water stains on everything from your toilet bowl to your outdoor barbecue. The stone itself is also surprisingly gentle and won't scratch the surface of, say, your porcelain throne.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have a 19-year-old master bathroom toilet that had accumulated some nasty stains over time, and regular toilet brushes and cleaning products just would not remove them. I decided to try this pumice stone, and it worked like a charm! Given the nature and severity of the stains, it required some elbow grease. But 10 minutes later, I have a new-looking bowl, and I see no signs of scratching." —Happy Retiree

    Amazon

    Raise your hand if your wallet from overflowing with tickets you don't have the heart to throw away.

    Promising review: "Instead of saving all my ticket stubs in a box, I can actually organize them! It's so neat to have something that makes it easy to remember a cool place with great people that doesn't break your bank (like souvenirs and expensive photos). Cool little book!" —Maritzaida Acevedo

    Get it from Amazon for $6.69.

    48. A power scrubber kit equipped with three different-sized attachments, each one perfect for the corners, floor, and door of your shower. This takes off years of accumulated build-up in just mere minutes, doing a better (and faster) job than you would have been able to do by hand. In the words of Daft Punk, this is just better, faster, and stronger.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this on a whim because my walk-in shower is just a pain to clean. I'm 51 and I guess I've just been old school with how I clean, so I was hand scrubbing it for years. The FIRST time I used this to clean my shower, it only took five minutes AND it scrubbed my shower to a point where it looked cleaner than it had been in years; in the corners, the floor, the glass door, everything came out squeaky clean. I'm NEVER cleaning my shower by hand again." —Terry
