    38 Products To Make Your Mornings Go As Smoothly As Possible

    To all the self-described "morning people" out there, I have only one question: how?

    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. Flexible curling rods that allow you to wake up with ready-to-go hair. These are pros at giving you the perfect waves without subjecting your 'do to any more heat damage and what's that? It's the sound of my burnt split-ends, tired eyes, and weak upper arms crying tears of relief.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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

    2. An alarm clock so loud, even the most stubborn snoozers will be forced to hop out of bed. Not only will this afford you more time to get ready every morning (bless), but snoozing = grogginess AKA this is basically better than a cup of coffee.

    amazon.com

    This is battery-operated and (BONUS) doesn't make any annoying tick tick tick sounds.

    Promising review: "I just woke up to this alarm clock for the first time and WOW is it effective. It's so loud that it not only wakes me up, but it scares the day lights out of me so that I jump out of bed too. No falling back asleep with this one around! Besides the extremely effective alarm, it is darn cute. I wanted to cut back on the digital items in my bedroom, and this is an attractive way to do so. It's built very well, so it doesn't feel cheap." —Lauren

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (available in five colors).

    3. A rechargeable portable blender great for anyone who is perpetually late and trying to get some sustenance on-the-go. Just dump in your favorite ingredients, press the blend button while walking to your car, and BAM! You've got yourself a delicious smoothie.

    amazon.com

    This blender comes with an ice cube tray and a funnel, plus you can remove the base to turn the blender itself into a drinking cup.

    Promising review: "As a very busy college student, it's hard to eat healthy. Between my limited dining hall options and my busy schedule, I needed a way to both eat my veggies and get to class on time. ENTER: this amazing blender bottle. BEST purchase my limited paycheck was ever used on. Fill 'er up with wilted salad bar spinach, crappy orange juice, a grainy apple, some ice, and BOOM...a shake is born. No need to head back to my dorm to plug it into a wall-socket base like most blenders. To my amazed friends, I am now the wizard of smoothies. They all want one now!" —Adrianna Simmons

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99 (available in three colors).

    4. A Two Minute Mornings journal with a dedicated page for each morning that asks what you will let go of, what you are grateful for, and what you will focus one. Consider this simple tradition to be your dedicated ~me time~, a practice that helps you start each day on the right foot.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Do you have two minutes? Do you struggle with priorities? Well, here's a journal to help you win your day. After struggling to manage his commitments, Neil Pasricha discovered a simple gratitude practice that changed his life. It takes—wait for it—just two minutes every morning. The practice is simple yet powerful, and by using a journal to log your entries, you'll be able to look back over the year at all you've accomplished." —Chris Guillebeau

    Get it from Amazon for $12.66.

    5. A dual-ended eyeliner stamp because, IN SPITE OF YOUR BEST EFFORTS, achieving the perfect cat eye is hard: this easy-to-use tool makes it about 1000x easier. All you'll have to do is cover the stamp in eyeliner, apply to your lashline, and your wing will be done in mere seconds — and you won't have to had used/wasted 10 makeup wipes and several years of your life in order to achieve it.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I just want to make my morning routine as easy as possible. I love winged liner, but I don’t have the steady hand for it. This stamp makes a perfect, easy, and consistent wing every time! I love it." —Julie B.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.97 (available in three colors).

    6. 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).

    Amazon

    Plus, this adds a dose of support to your bra 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).

    7. A Garnier daily moisturizer for those of us who forget the most important step in our AM skincare routines (SUNSCREEN). This lightweight formula contains SPF30 and actively prevents sun damage, meaning you'll get moisture and sun protection in just one swipe.

    Amazon

    If you're looking for oil-free moisture that won't leave your face looking like a puddle of grease, this is the product for you. It contains vitamin c, vitamin e, lipo-hydroxyl acid LHA, and pine bark essence to also brighten your complexion and reduce dark spots.

    Promising review: "Finally, no white cast!! This sunscreen is unlike other sunscreens in that it does not make me look ashen and it doesn't make my face look greasy. I don't have to knead my face since the product absorbs easily." —Raggedy Ann

    Get it from Amazon for $10.53.

    8. A Takeya cold brew maker with an airtight lid and stainless steel filter that will keep your coffee fresh for up to two weeks. "No more having to wake up extra early to stop for cold brew at that expensive coffee shop," I'll say to my reflection in the mirror, heart jittering as I sip my 15th cup of cold brew for the day.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    Just add up to six tablespoons of your go-to coffee beans into the filter, fill it with water, and leave it in the fridge for up to 24 hours. Then, remove the filter from the pitcher and — BAM — you've got some delicious coffee.

    Promising review: "This was my first cold brewing experience, but this product made it easy! Just put your coffee in the filter, fill it with water, and forget it in the fridge for a day! Plus, I love that everything comes apart easily and can be put in the dishwasher." —shackelforrd

    9. A Philips alarm clock that mimics natural light and gradually brightens over 30 minutes, meaning you'll feel as if you're waking up with the sunrise and your own internal clock as opposed to the jarring noise of a typical alarm.

    Amazon

    This clock has 20 brightness settings, three ~calming~ wake-up sounds, an FM radio, and can be used as a bedside reading lamp. It's even got a two-year warranty through Philips!

    Promising review: "I can safely say I now wake up prior to any noise of any alarm, even the sunrise alarm. The ambient light slowly wakes me up even on nights where I get little to no sleep. It has literally changed the way I wake up and on days I would feel utterly disgusting, I now feel slightly better. This is not a product that will replace your cup of coffee. This has simply been something that wakes me up more gently than anything I have used before. I read reviews about the clunkiness of the controls but honestly, its very easy to use. Plug it in, set the alarm and go to sleep. I have my sunrise alarm next to me and have learned where the buttons are and have not had any issues. I am a light sleeper so this works well for me. Give it a shot and see the light!" —Spencer Cheung

    Get it from Amazon for $93.99.

    10. An iPhone case designed with a handy dandy wallet, meaning you can keep your two most valuable possessions (your cards and your cell) on hand at all times. Just throw this one thing in your bag and you'll be ready to head out the door.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    This case fits iPhone 7 plus and iPhone 8 plus.

    Promising review: "This is a fantastic case. It holds six cards and has two places to keep cash, and I no longer need to carry a wallet. I like the zipper feature because it gives me more security knowing that flap will not open.

    It's designed well, does not obstruct my camera, and the case fits snugly." —HMSK

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99 (available in three colors).

    11. A pair of black flats that will not clash with anything in your closet, so you’ll be able to throw on any hue/print/style in the AM without fear of being stopped by the fashion police. I know, I know, you usually wear black, but these are great to have just in case you decide to wear some fun colors.

    amazon.com

    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).

    12. A cast iron wall mount you can install right near your door. No more overthrowing couches and digging through trash cans in an attempt to find your lost keys. No sir! This mount ensures that they'll be conveniently hanging for you to just grab 'em and go.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I was so tired of constantly digging my keys out of purse, so I wanted something nice and stylish to hold them.

    amazon.com

    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.

    14. A Skintimate 2-In-1 moisturizer capable of making every lazy person in the 🌎 jump for joy. This shea butter-, soy protein-, and aloe-infused formula acts as both a shaving cream and a skin conditioner, meaning you can skip the whole "waiting for your lotion to dry before FINALLY putting on clothes" process. Your limbs will by hydrated the moment you step onto your bathroom tile, thus saving you a few precious minutes after every morning shower.

    This paraben-free formula has a creamy, foaming consistency that locks in up to 24 hours of hydration. Helllloooooo, soft legs the second I step out of the shower.

    Promising review: "This is my new favorite shaving lotion. I've never been a huge fan of shaving cream and I've used other shave lotions that left me feeling underwhelmed, but this stuff is so nice! A little goes a long way, it leaves my legs feeling incredibly smooth, and the scent is to die for. I'll never use shaving cream again!" —Meredith Greenwood

    Get it from Amazon for $12.80.

    15. A Maybelline concealer formulated with goji berry and Haloxyl because no one needs to know that you binged all of Chernobyl last night. Just a quick swipe of this and *poof* your dark circles are now a thing of the past.

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

    This concealer also comes with an attached sponge applicator, meaning you can stash it in your bag for touch-ups without having to worry about carrying around a makeup brush.

    Promising review: "I am a makeup snob. I have stupidly high standards for cosmetic performance, and drugstore brands have let me down every single time I've given them a shot. So when I graduated from Covergirl to Sephora after college, I never looked back. My kit is full of Dior and YSL foundation, Armani concealer, Benefit brighteners, etc. But this thing is truly great.The sponge applicator is better than you think. Firstly, it's antimicrobial, so you don't have to worry about the hygiene aspect. Secondly, its ability to blend the product is outstanding. The concealer itself doubles as a highlighter, it looks good without primer, and it lasts so much longer than you'd expect." —Sarita

    Get it from Amazon for $7.12 (available in 12 shades).

    Check out one BuzzFeeder's full review of this Maybelline concealer.

    16. An insulated, stainless steel Hydro Flask water bottle with a lifetime warranty that keeps drinks cold for up to 24 hours and hot for up to six hours, meaning you'll be able to stay hydrated/caffeinated all day long. *proceeds to drink less than one sip of water per day*

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Hydro Flask has stolen my heart. I have put ice in it during the summer on the hottest days, and there's still ice cubes in it at the end of the day. I put coffee in it before class on cold days, and my coffee is still hot two classes later. I have given this as a gift to everyone — my professor, my clinical instructor, my coach, my mom -- the list goes on and on." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $21.93+ (available in 14 colors).

    17. AND! Bottle Bright cleaning tablets to quickly remove all that funky, gross, probably-starting-to-smell build-up in the above bottle. These are biodegradable, chlorine-free, and — best of all — require absolutely NO effort or scrubbing.

    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.

    18. Roll-up flats that can be stashed in your bag, meaning you can slip these babies on when your four-inch heels become too much to bear during your morning commute.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I purchased these ballet flats because I hate wearing heels, but sometimes occasions happen where you must wear them. At a recent black tie event, I hid these flats in my clutch. About 45 minutes in, I kicked the heels off my aching feet and put these on. I never took them off. Other women were jealous!" —Phyllis

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I have thick, naturally curly hair and my hair usually takes forever to dry. This towel helps my hair to dry about twice as fast! Getting out of the shower, I wrap my hair in this towel while I get dressed and I no longer have to worry about my hair completely drenching my shirt as soon as i take it out of the towel. It really dries it to a manageable level of dryness in just a minute or two." —AubriSnowe

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99.

    Check out a BuzzFeeder's review of the Aquis hair towel!

    20. A silicone travel mat that is heat-resistant up to 450°F and prevents you from ruining expensive things (like, gee, furniture).

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Do yourself a favor and make this purchase! It has saved my vanity surface and bathroom granite from getting burn marks. I just wish I would have ordered this sooner! It's the perfect size and I use it every day with my straightener and curling iron." —Ken

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in two colors).

    21. 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 within minutes, no finger-pricking sewing needles required.

    Amazon

    Pants bunching up around your ankles = not cute. 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.

    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.

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing!! I got the chocolate maple pretzel flavor and the pretzel pieces stay really crunchy, and the maple flavor is outstanding. It's great with apples and bananas, but it's also wonderful just by itself. It really satisfies my sweet cravings. Will definitely buy again and I'm excited to try the other flavors." —Asoeung

    Get it from Amazon for $11.39 (available in 14 flavors).

    25. A Hair Dance powder dry shampoo that is especially great at vacuuming up grease and adding body sans any leftover chalky white residue. Pro tip: If you add some into your roots before bed, you'll wake up with a completely refreshed scalp that looks like it was shampooed five minutes ago (...as opposed to five days ago).

    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.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.19 (available in three shades).

    amazon.com

    This sterling silver magnet clasp is also nickel-free, meaning it won't turn your neck a putrid shade of green after .5 seconds of wear.

    Promising review: "I have a number of necklaces with clasps so tiny that I have trouble connecting them, so I was looking for magnets that would be strong enough to support a chain and pendant that were fairly valuable. This turned out to be a winner! I can sleep and shower with it on and never have to worry about it becoming detached. I actually have to tug a bit to get it to unlatch." —EDC

    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

I have adult moderate cystic acne and this stuff really calms it down and helps with redness. Anytime I feel like I am getting a pimple or can see the under-the-skin bump, I will lather this healing powder all over it all day long. Definitely a go-to product and I highly recommend to anyone who suffers from incredibly painful and stubborn cystic acne." —justanothercollegestudent

    37. A ginger sugar overnight mask you apply before bed and voilà! You'll wake up to a nourished pout ready for even the most drying of matte formulas (because I'm just going to come out and say it...🗣️matte formulas look great, but they ARE drying as heck).

    Promising review: "HOLY GRAIL! I have always had problems with my lips being painfully dry and peeling since being on Accutane fifteen years ago. I have tried EVERYTHING: every kind of lip balm, supplement, and scrub with no change. I've been using this mask for a little over a month now and my lips are soft and smooth...I can even wear long-wearing lipstick again! I also will occasionally wear it throughout the day as a lip balm. I seriously hope they never stop making this!" —MiteyMo

    38. A stainless steel odor absorber that will rid your hands of any pungent scents — because you were supposed to wash the dishes last night, but life happened and now you're stuck doing them in the morning. Just a quick wash with this bar and voilà! Your hands are now odor-free and you won't have the smell of fish lingering around you all day long.

    Promising review: "Simply wash your hands under the sink with this little guy and suddenly, your hands smell like hands again. I've used it after handling several smelly items that have a tendency to make an odor stick with you, an this worked consistently every time. Basically, if you are tired of that weird smelly sponge odor sticking with your hands, get this thing." —Jeremy
