    Leggings! Lotion! Mini waffle makers!

    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI β€” prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. High-waisted leggings so perfect, they're said to have inspired the hit song "Can't Help Falling in Love."

    Not only do they have POCKETS, but they also won't tell the world what color underwear you're wearing. Join me as I say "sayonara" to all my other see-through leggings.

    Promising review: "FINALLY!! Workout leggings with pockets!! No more tucking my phone into my bra or dropping it on the treadmill I can't say one bad thing about these leggings. The price is fantastic (you're getting WAY more than what you're paying for), they're not see-through, and they don't lose their stretch. Plus, they're thick and give enough compression to minimize jiggle. I wear a size 20 in pants, and the 2XL fit perfectly β€” I love them so much, I'm buying a few pairs just in case they stop making them." β€”Kgirlg

    Price: $29.99 (available in sizes XS-XXL in short, regular, and tall sizes, and in two colors)

    2. A mini waffle maker for anyone who wants to make quick, homemade waffles. (READ: not the frozen kind.)

    This little waffle maker doesn't come with any fancy functions or buttons β€” just plug it in, it'll heat up to the ~perfect~ temperature to make your waffle, and then unplug it when you're done using it. Plus, it's made from ceramic, nonstick plates that are super easy to clean up.

    Promising review: "This thing works GREAT β€” the waffles come out PERFECTLY! I was so shocked that something this small and this inexpensive could work as well as it does." β€”Momof2

    Price: $9.99 (available in five colors)

    3. A daily moisturizer that hydrates your skin without leaving any greasy residue behind. Plus, it's non-comedogenic and won't clog your pores.

    This formula contains ceramides which naturally protects your skin, making it great for anyone who suffers from eczema and dryness. PLUS! This lotion is fragrance-free AKA it won't irritate your nose.

    Promising review: "This is the best lotion around! It's gentle on my skin, super hydrating, and not greasy at all. It leaves my skin hydrated for hours!" β€”Amber7766

    Price: $10.49

    4. An area rug so pretty, you won't believe it costs this little. (Okay, you might, but only because Target's prices are pretty damn great.)

    Just be sure to purchase a rug pad to prevent this from slipping and sliding!

    Promising review: "This rug is so pretty! I was afraid to buy it online without seeing it in person, but I'm so glad I did. The blue color is rich and dark, it laid flat right away, vacuums easily, and is a great size. I am VERY happy with my purchase!" β€”melfrompville

    Price: $29.99+ (available in two sizes: 2'6"x4' and 7'-10' and in six colors)

    5. Stemless wine glasses to add sophistication to your next wine night β€” even if you are sipping on a red that costs about $2.

    Promising review: "I love these glasses! I purchased this set for my boyfriend, and we've used them quite a bit. They're great quality, and definitely a win for the low price tag!" β€”Manilynn

    Price: $3.99 for a set of four

    Promising review: "I bought this for toy storage and it's perfect! It holds a ton, it looks so beautiful, and it's incredibly sturdy. My three-year-old has climbed on it, and my 30-year-old sister has even sat on it. This is my favorite piece, and I might buy another one for the foot of my bed!" β€”Courtney

    Price: $75.99

    8. A lightweight carry-on with multi-directional spinner wheels, meaning you can easily run through the airport with this by your side.

    When you're already running late for a flight, a clunky suitcase makes everything about 75x worse. This one will just glide along with you.

    Promising review: "This looks great and is very lightweight. Plus, it's compact but still roomy, and is half the price of other comparable suitcases I've had. This is definitely an excellent buy!" β€”KatyMc

A little while after the first application, my lips sloughed off an impressive layer of dead skin, and now they're BABY SOFT and not constantly peeling for once in my life! The tingly peppermint slightly plumps my lips, and I just love it so much. SO MUCH! I've always been nervous about entering into a relationship but being embarrassed because of my dry, flaky lips. But dare I say, they're almost kissable now! Praise be to Burt's Bees!" β€”Kathy412

    Price: $4.99 for a pack of two

    This set includes a stainless steel mixing bowl, dough hook, flat beaters, and a whisk. Plus, this mixer has ten different speed settings that can knead any and all kinds of dough.

    Promising review: "I got this mixer as a gift, and I absolutely love it. It makes baking so much easier! I was able to knock out my Christmas cookies much quicker than when I was using a handheld mixer, and I didn't have to endure any hand cramping while mixing harder doughs. This thing really is a gem! Plus, it makes the fluffiest mashed potatoes. I couldn't be any happier!" β€”Lisa E.

    Price: $199 (originally $259.99, available in two colors)

    Promising review: "I have purchased two of these garbage cans now: it's so great, especially for the price! It closes slowly and silently (there's never a loud banging noise), trash bags stay in place inside of it, and the brushed stainless steel exterior is fingerprint-resistant. If you're looking for a good quality garbage can with a sleek appearance at a reasonable price, I highly recommend this one!" β€”Happy

    13. A long-sleeve t-shirt no wardrobe should have to live without. This is a basic necessity for a happy, healthy, and thriving closet.

    Promising review: "This is my favorite shirt, and I own it in six different colors! It's super soft, lightweight, and not too clingy. It's long enough to cover your stomach (far too many plus-size clothing manufacturers do not get this concept), and it feels the same even after being washed a million times." β€”Letusprey

    Price: $12 (available in sizes 1X-4X and in eight colors)

    14. A super soft, super cozy throw blanket made with an anti-pill material β€” aka it won't look frayed and torn up after just one wash.

These are definitely keeping us all cooler, and well worth the price IMO." β€”Kat C.

    Promising review: "Within two weeks of using this in place of my old toothbrush, I received compliments on how my teeth looked. Now, four months later, my new dental hygienist asked how long I've had my veneers. I DON'T! My teeth just look THAT good, and I owe it to this brush. I wish I bought this sooner." β€”Chrissy630

    This bottle of magic is formulated with argan and sunflower seed oil to detangle, nourish, strengthen, soften, reduce frizz, and add shine. AND! It cuts drying time and protects your hair from heat.

    Promising review: "I am really picky about my hair products. I don't like my hair to be oily, crunchy, or overly-scented, and I can't use most hair sprays because the smell is strong.

It smells great, leaves my hair soft (but not oily or weighed-down), and the bottle lasts a long time." β€”VADogRunner
