    48 Things You Should Probably Already Own, But Don't

    Blackberry and buttermilk ice cream. That's all.

    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. A skin scrubber for an at-home facial that *feels* like a splurge. Dead skin cells, leftover makeup, blackheads, and whiteheads will be sloughed away thanks to high-frequency vibrations that replicate all the ~slightly gross yet extremely satisfying~ TikTok videos that have taken up an alarming amount of your time.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    This has three different functions (cleansing, lifting, and smoothing) and is best to use when your skin is still damp!

    Promising review: "Love this tool! I recently got a professional facial and they used a tool like this one on me! I was so intrigued that I had to purchase one for myself! The price point is amazing and it does the job. Once I used it, I noticed I was able to exfoliate my skin nicely and get some extractions from my clogged pores on my nose and chin. I then used it with a serum, which was nice and how it was used during my facials. Can’t wait to use it more! There are tons of different ways to use it! Great price for a great tool!" —Stephanie Nelson

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99.

    2. A mason jar cold brew maker for quick java that doesn't require A: leaving the house and B: one trillion dollars for a single cup. It's equipped with an airtight lid to keep everything fresh, contains about 12 servings, and is easy as heck to operate — just add your favorite grounds, pour in water, and leave it in the fridge.

    Willow & Everett

    Promising review: "This cold-brew coffee maker is fantastic. It takes less time to set up a brew than it takes to load the Mr. Coffee for regular coffee. And the brilliant feature of this coffee brewing system is that it makes enough to last several days. I enjoy the ease with which I simply 'turn the tap' to pour a glass." —Mr. Donald L. Stevens

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    3. THE leggings that have amassed over 25,000 reviews — you know them, you love them, it's about time you grabbed a pair. These babies are ultra high-waisted, super comfy, have a fun ruched design, and are best known for accentuating your 🍑.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are hands-down my favorite leggings. I love the fit and the feel of them. Would repurchase in every color, and I already have probably six different colors already and I want MORE!! They hold up in the washer/dryer and color doesn't bleed onto other clothes. The only thing I didn't love on the leggings was that the waist band was quite thick; my simple fix for it was just making a small cut on the inside seam and cutting the elastic out, and it makes them fit PERFECTLY." —Aspen

    Get them from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes XS–3X and 45 colors).

    4. Handmade polymer clay hoops truly worth a Shakespearean novel because I, for one, now officially believe in love at first sight. I never thought I'd have such strong feelings about earrings but here we are!

    These are also hypoallergenic, stainless steel, and nickel free.

    Helloeana is a Black-owned Etsy shop that specializes in handcrafted polymer earrings, all of which deserve their own exhibit at The Met.

    Get it from helloeana on Etsy for $20 (available in two colors).

    5. Reusable silicone straws for guzzling down iced coffee with gusto. The secret perk of this particular set? Cleanliness! Snap closures mean you can open the straws in half to ensure they're dry and gunk-free! Just give 'em a good wipe down. No more "cleaning" brushes required.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I never thought I’d be writing a review for straws, but here we are. These are FANTASTIC. I try to be as eco-friendly as possible but was ready to give up. I’ve tried metal straws, but they are tough to clean and I don’t love metal against my teeth. I’ve tried other reusable plastic and silicone options but they don’t work for thicker drinks like smoothies. These actually address all of my issues. I’ve used them for thick smoothies, that I drink daily, and just for other everyday drinks like water. They couldn’t be easier to snap open and clean, dry, then easily snap back into shape to use again." —M. Alexandra

    Get them from Amazon for $3.99+ (available in four colors).

    6. Water-resistant customized labels that have both made *and* ruined my day because they bring me an immeasurable amount of joy — which gives me no choice but to confront just how much my age has caught up with me. "I used to love clubs" —me all the time.

    Get them from Real and Vibrant on Etsy for $10+ (for a set of five).

    7. A personalized Starbucks cup (inspired by The Vampire Diaries) to showcase the only vampire-werewolf universe love connection that matters: Team Damon. We don't talk about Team Stefan in this house. And we most certainly don't bring up names like Edward and Jacob.

    HoodbabyDesigns / Etsy

    Get it from HoodbabyDesigns on Etsy for $16+ (available in four design styles and six colors).

    8. A bottle of Glossier You voted most likely to become your signature scent from now until forever. Pink pepper, ambrette seeds, ambrox, and iris make for a stunning quartet that blends in with *your* natural oils to create a perfume that smells like, dare I say, you.

    model holding up the pink bottle with red cap
    Glossier

    Promising review: "You know when you open a magazine and smell a sample strip of cologne and it's heavenly but then you buy it and it smells nothing like that? Well this DOES! It smells like the actual fresh papers of the newsletter and the glorious perfume itself. That's the only way I can describe it. Bought my sister a bottle too. My new favorite scent!" —Kqueen3

    Get it from Glossier for $60.

    9. A convertible one-piece that is basically three outfits in one: adjustable back straps means this can be fashioned into a halter, high-neck, *or* V-neck style with a drool-worthy open back guaranteed.

    Free People

    Psst, Free People has a whole convertible section so you can shop more styles that are similar in concept to the one above!

    Get it from Free People for $88 (available in sizes XS-XL and in three colors).

    10. An ice cream pint from Crank & Boom, a Lexington, Kentucky-based ice cream shop started by a husband-and-wife duo. This spot ~churns~ out decadent handcrafted ice cream in ultra unique flavors — think blackberry and buttermilk, Bourbon and honey, and strawberry balsamic sorbet.

    Get six pints of their ice cream from Goldbelly for $99.

    11. A power scrubber that quickly ~scrubs~ away the stubborn soap scum you've been disgusted by for ages, but quietly ignored until now. This will have every corner of your bathroom looking sparkling clean.

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    "I'm obsessed! This thing works small miracles: I cleaned about half of my bathroom's grout to its original sparkling-clean cream color in 40 minutes, and it took honestly no effort at all. And — as if easy, sparkling grout wasn't enough! — it busted through some serious soap-scum buildup in my bathtub (thanks, fancy soap and slow-draining tub) in less than a minute.

    Honestly, when I first tried the scrubber out, I didn't see too many uses for it other than for grout. But after owning it for a while, I've realized that while I don't need it every single week, it's priceless for the occasions I encounter tough gunk that I'd otherwise only conquer with excessive patience and elbow grease." —Natalie Brown, BuzzFeed Editor

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    Read Natalie's full review of the Rubbermaid Reveal Power Scrubber here.

    12. A handheld bag sealer if you've ever bit into a stale Dorito and thought, wow, why have I been forsaken. Use this portable device to secure allllllll the foods that go bleh pretty quickly after the bag has been opened: chips, cereals, even frozen foods!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Wish I would’ve bought this sooner! Not only is it so cute but it’s so easy to use. I can finally close my bag of chips after picking at it! It’s magnetic so I can stick it right on my fridge and it has a little sharp knife that you can unlock to use to open the bag again! So great!" —JB

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    13. A handcrafted obsidian facial roller that provides a lovely facial massage while working toward a smoother, more supple complexion. For anyone struggling to navigate the work from home balance (::laughs:: ::sends email responses at 11 p.m.), this guarantees chill time on even the most hectic days.

    14. The Majority Box, a curated kit of delicious foodie gifts from Black artisans based in Memphis, Tennessee. You'll get seven items (plus free Memphis swag!) that include blueberry lemongrass jam, butter cookies, blackening seasoning, and more items that are too difficult for me to write about whilst I eat this flavorless salad.

    City Tasting Box

    Get it from City Tasting Box for $74.99.

    15. A soap pump dispenser I have one word for: brilliant. Doing dishes in a cluttered kitchen with limited counter space is both my nightmare and reality, so this convenient gizmo (where you can squeeze soap directly onto a sponge with one hand) literally made my heart go pitter-patter when I saw it.

    amazon.com, @toponlinefinds / Via tiktok.com

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this! I leave my sponge on top and do not have to reach under the sink to get my bulky Dawn dish soap bottle from under the sink every time I need it. It looks clean and my friends that have noticed it said something about it. I highly recommend it." —Lisa Camarena

    Get it from Amazon for $9.34 (available in two colors).

    16. A chic athleisure set that I will personally be living in until ::checks watch:: the end of time. Stretchy fabric means comfort, light and breathable compression has you feeling put-together, and the look? Worthy of grid space on your Instagram account.

    J Lux Label

    J Lux Label is a woman-owned small business based in Los Angeles that specializes in ultra chic clothing. Think puffer coats, athleisure sets (cc: the perfection featured above), and jumpsuits that belong in my closet. Like, right now. ::buys entire shop::

    Get it from J Lux Label for $62.99 (available in sizes S-L).

    17. An ultra thin electrical cover because the only outlet in your entire bedroom is covered by a heavy dresser. Say so long, farewell to wiggling furniture out in order to make room for bulky plugs: this cover is connected to a power strip that lets you charge six devices at a time.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "The design of this is great. I always hated putting plugs behind furniture and either not using the plug, or the furniture being inches away from the wall. This is the perfect solution. I have a few of these now behind couches and dressers in the house and they are great. This is more expensive than some other flat extension cords but I think the look and quality of these is worth it." —Adam C.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    18. 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.

    19. A chunky knit satin-lined winter beanie for keeping your noggin warm in less-than-toasty temps *and* for not damaging your 'do in the process. The satin lining curbs damage, prevents moisture loss, and won't compromise your curl pattern or style.

    Beautifully Warm

    It's also super stretchy to fit your hair! Beautifully Warm is a Black-owned business that makes satin-lined hats, backless caps, and more.

    Promising review: "I purchased this in December and was skeptical but let me tell you. It was the best purchase ever. Talk about saving my natural hair and not messing up my hairstyle. I love this cap and will be purchasing more. It's a game changer. Wished I would have saw sooner. Plus it keeps my head warm. Others says it big but it's OK cause it slouches and when I go to the salon and get my hair curled I throw it on and I live in Minnesota so the weather does a number on our type of hair. That satin-lined hat keeps my head warm and my style tight....." —hlc1976

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in 10 colors and packs of two).

    20. AJ Crimson Lipstick – it may just be the last lipstick tube you want to buy. Ever. The formulas are ultra pigmented without being overly drying, so rest assured your pout will have the perfect pink wash of pink — no 80 layers of moisturizing balm required.

    AJ Crimson

    Promising review: "The Ex-Factor shade is BEAUTIFUL for darker-skinned woman. OMG, this color gave me life when I put it on. At first, it seemed super dark; but then it was very nice on my lips. I loved so much that I wore it to the gym :-) and felt amazing during my workout." —Sandra D Troutman

    Get them from AJ Crimson for $20.

    21. LED Under-cabinet lights to make any teeny kitchen feel more spacious, more inviting, and less like a dungeon made worse by bad fluorescence. You can even keep these on overnight to reduce the chance of ghost encounters on your way to grab a glass of water.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I had my doubts but I thought, what the heck, for the price I'd give them a try. I am in real estate and known as a lighting snob. The first thing I look at in a kitchen if there is under-cabinet lighting. These are so nice (it helps if you have a lip at the bottom of your cabinets) They are a true white, very bright, and I was lucky they were just the length I needed. I just ordered a set and had them shipped to my mom's as her halogen transformer which is buried in a wall, fried and I drives me nuts that the workspace on the counter is dark. I can't wait until I make the 250-mile drive to install them. I may buy more just to use at our listings!" —pauly

    Get a 10' strand with 60 lights from Amazon for $17.99.

    22. A large duck chew toy that reviewers (myself included) rave about for its durability. This 'lil guy is truly the gift that keeps on giving because you won't have to replace it after a mere few days — my Frenchie has been chewing on the same one for ~5 months now and it's still going strong.*

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    *My French Bulldog and the light of my life, Rockie, is not really into playing with chew toys (he prefers napping) but THIS DUCK! I was shocked when I first bought it because he immediately loved it so much and it didn't fall apart after a week.

    Promising review: "My English Mastiff (and the biggest baby ever) loves his ducky. He has ripped up other toys, but not his beloved duck. He has had it for a few months now and brings it everywhere around the house with him, even sleeps snuggled up with it. I don't know why dogs seem to love this toy so much, but I would highly recommend purchasing." —Kristen

    Get one from Amazon for $7.90.

    23. An over-the-sink drying rack for my fellow city dwellers who understand the struggle of limited countertop space. This hunk of collapsible silicone-coated stainless steel can store everything from pans to cutlery up to 50 lbs, but can easily be folded up and stored away when not in use.

    Food52

    Get it from Food52 for $45 (available in three colors).

    24. A tub of The Pink Stuff, an all-purpose paste capable of tackling your most pesky cleaning problems. Caked up grease on kitchen cabinets and red vino stains on white carpeting will all but vanish with no elbow grease required (an ideal cleaning situation).

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My 2-year-old is an up-and-coming artist and she frequently uses my white walls as a canvas. I have gone through Costco-sized packages of "magic erasers" trying to scrub her artwork off the walls to no avail. We ordered this as a last resort when someone in a cleaning group recommended it. The day it came we cleaned two walls and every bit of the marker, pencil, crayon, and colored pencil came off. HIGHLY recommend this stuff." —Jackilyn

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $14.25.

    25. La Roche-Posay Lipikar Balm AP+ Intense Repair – it's heard our prayers for nongreasy, intense hydration that doesn't end in backne outbreaks — and boy oh boy, it sure does deliver. Reviewers swear it's safe for sensitive and acne-prone skin, plus it's great for streamlining your skincare routine because it's allegedly fantastic for face and body.

    instagram.com / Via @larocheposayusa

    Promising review: "Well I’m sold on this stuff. I have very dry skin and if I apply this head to toe while still damp from the shower it goes on super quickly and dries fast without being greasy (which I loathe). This method seems to use very little product, so I’m still on this same bottle six months in!! I also use it on my face (yes really) and magically it doesn’t break out my sensitive skin. Like I said. SOLD." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in two sizes).

    26. A vacuum hose attachment because the lint that has accumulated in your dryer...take care of that, sis. Clogged vents = longer drying times = higher utility bills = less money in your bank account to put toward, say, more Seamless takeout. An FYI that multiple reviewers (multiple!) pulled out whole socks from their lint traps.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This thing is seriously amazing. I figured out how to use it very quickly and it worked like a charm. I had a sock stuck wayy down in my vent and would've had no idea! I still can't believe how much lent and dust came out of my dryer. My husband is already talking about other uses for this unique tool, like getting into tight spaces in our cars." —J. Johnson

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    27. An adjustable ~garbage can~ to toss the food wrappers, receipts, and heaven-knows-what-else that accumulates in your vehicle. Picture it now: a world in which your passenger seat isn't cluttered with coffee to-go cups.

    Amazon

    Some reviewers even use this for their strollers!

    Promising review: "I love this trash bag. My car has never stayed this clean. I have had it since last December and every time I go to empty it out, I am amazed as to how much it holds. It obviously isn’t made for super big items, but the paper that comes off of straws, gum, or whatever snack my kids are having in the car that day holds it and then some. The reason I’m even writing this is because I just emptied it and found a paper plate in it. I love the Velcro bottom too. It is easy to unwrap and wipe down the inside." —Maddie Gutierrez

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    28. Ultra pigmented lip stains that pay homage to your beverage of choice — red red wine. Reviewers swear these tints are smudge- and transfer-proof and, adorable vino-inspired packaging aside, you'll get six wearable shades for ~$10.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    ::major Billy Joel voice:: "A bottle of red.... and another bottle of red... and another..." —you opening this Amazon package.

    Promising review: "These are the cutest lip stains I’ve ever seen! The best part is they work. Love the colors and they are definitely a staining. Feels like there is nothing there and they don’t get on your mask. Love love love." —Debbie Corley

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $9.99.

    29. A color-changing LED string for extra lighting if your room is best described as dungeon vampire chic. This has six levels of brightness ranging from warm to light, takes minutes to install, is 32-feet long, and adds a bit of oomph to any WFH corner.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This even has a remote control so you can adjust the light settings from your bed (or office chair).

    Promising review: "These lights were so much easier to install than I thought they'd be! The tape on the back is really strong and the lights themselves are brighter than the main light in my room. Everything was really dark and bland before, but these really made everything feel prettier than it was." —Shayna

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99.

    30. e.l.f. Illuminating Eye Cream that provides your peepers with jojoba, vitamin E, and cucumber — meaning you dark circles and fine lines will begin to be gone. Luxe eye creams usually cost around a trillion dollars, so finding a holy grail item like this for ~$10 is basically like striking gold.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "What? Just $10!? I was skeptical but this is GREAT! I have purchased and used very expensive eye creams ranging from $50 to over $150 for a single product. Try this. You will like it." —Hadley

    Get it from Amazon for $10.

    31. A organizer tray to stack silverware, because kitchen real estate is not something we have and this helps maximize every single inch of space. Cutlery will look sleek and organized; narrow drawers long thought to not have a purpose will now be useful.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Buy it! This is the best purchase I've made in a while. Its very sturdy and saves me so much space! If you have limited storage or just want a clean looking utensil drawer, this is it!" —Ruby Escobar

    Get it from Amazon for $7.49+ (available in four colors and three sizes).

    32. Kitschy oil and vinegar dispensers with a gravity-lid spout that automatically opens when facing downward, plus etched-in measurements ensure you'll follow that Pinterest recipe to a T. Accidentally pouring seven gallons of expensive olive oil will be a heartbreak of the past thanks to a steady pour.

    Promising review: "The best oil dispenser I've ever bought! Great price, leak proof, easy to use and the best part, it's made of glass!" —MB

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $19.99 (available in four colors).

    33. Cake Beauty The Curl Friend Defining Cream – it delivers glossy, frizz-free curls on second (or third or fourth or tenth) day hair. A blend of shea butter and lightweight natural oils provide a ton of moisture but thankfully none of the weigh-down.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is the most reasonably priced curly hair product I've found. I originally got a little tube from my Ipsy order, and I liked it so much, I came to Amazon to order a full-sized bottle. It doesn't make my hair crunchy or greasy, even if I accidentally put too much on. My curls look natural and bouncy after using my diffuser, and even when I let hair air dry, this gives my curls a little extra form and structure to look like I actually did something to my hair." —sbgoodgirl

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    34. A loose powder case most likely plucked from the vanity of one Daisy Buchanan. This gorgeous piece provides a fun way to ~romanticize~ your most mundane daily activities — mattifying your greasy T-zone, included.

    35. A double-sided electronics brush because that Dorito crumb has been lodged under the space key for *scratches head* quite a long time. This will keep your pricy laptop squeaky clean and prevent costly fixes in the future.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I WFH, so my laptop as accumulated its fair share of crumbs, dust, and other debris. This was the perfect cleaning tool. The brush side easily sweeps away particles and the rubbery wedge side helps to scrub out gunk in-between keys. The best part is that it easily fits into the penholder on my desk." —Andrea G.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in orange and blue).

    36. Melixir Vegan Lip Butter – it reaps all the benefits of your favorite matte lipstick (READ: intense color) but still delivers a generous serving of hydration with every swipe. With that being said, I believe the time to kick ultra drying matte lipsticks to the curb has arrived — this prod provides a flush of color on its own, no lip liner required.

    instagram.com / Via http://@melixir.me, Amazon

    This lovely formula contains agave, vitamin E, green tea seed oil, jojoba oil, and argan oil.

    Promising review: "I am so obsessed with this! I have had super dry lips lately and have gone through so many different balms, butters, etc and this one is the best. Not only is it super moisturizing and makes my lips soft like butter, but the red velvet tint it has is perfect! I love wearing lipsticks and adding a pop of color to my face and this is my go to. I don’t have to mix it with anything." —Nila

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in seven tints, including clear).

    37. Pacifica Beauty Coconut and Charcoal Detox Scrub – it's great for anyone who knows that making the switch to natural deodorant is truly ~the pits~. A blend of vegan ingredients are used to exfoliate your underarms and helps to remove all the pore-blocking gunk. Talk about pepe le phew, eh?

    two jars of the coconut and charcoal scrub
    Amazon

    This stuff is also great if you're not transitioning to natural deodorant. TL;DR: it's a great way to give your underarms some TLC during your shower routine.

    Promising review: "This product is marketed for those transitioning from regular deodorant to natural. I use it every time I shower because depending on my level of activity for the day, I will flip flop between all natural aluminum free to regular deodorant for longer or more active days. This stuff is soo great! The scrub is not harsh and makes my skin soft and the charcoal lightens any darkness and purifies. The light smell of coconut is delicious! Not overpowering at all. Would absolutely recommend whether transitioning or not. It's perfect for everyday use." —MiKu82215

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    38. Beauty Pie Smart Powder Blush to deliver an instant flush of color for that ~I drink water and eat veggies and spent the day at the beach~ glow. It's got red-algae and biosaccharides (both of which provide UV protection!) and has a silk-like finish that doesn't look chalky.

    Beauty Pie

    Promising review: "I prefer blusher over bronzer. This has to be the best blusher I have ever used. I love the colour and I love how there is a little shimmer when you apply it to the cheeks, making you look more dewy and alive. I will definitely be repurchasing once I have used it up" –Abi

    Get it from Beauty Pie for $25 ($4.99 for members, available in three colors).

    39. A bread maker so that the perfect hunk of homemade carbs can be yours with no serious baking expertise ~kneaded~. The secret sauce is a partially closed design which allows the steam to spread evenly for a perfectly golden loaf.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    This is both microwave and dishwasher safe. It's capable of withstanding temperatures up to 428 degrees.

    Promising review: "I love this. It's very easy to use and to clean. I have been trying to make fresh bread every week and this is much easier than using my dutch oven. I have been trying different recipes with this bread maker and so far all have come out great!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $26.23.

    40. A reusable travel tumbler because if the joe is not in a photogenic casing, WE DON'T WANT IT. This baby comes with a lid, a glass straw, and cleaning brush packaged in one neat little gift box, plus the lid itself is adjustable — there's a slit if you'd prefer sipping directly from the mug *and* an opening for your straw.

    It's also dishwasher- (top shelf), microwave- and freezer-safe.

    Promising review: "MY FAVORITE TUMBLER OF ALL TIME. Loved the minimalistic design, packaging, and especially the fact that it is an eco-friendly product! Perfect to keep in an office, carry around, or put in a car cup holder!" —Kevin J.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in two colors).

    41. A bell-sleeve cardigan that I am personally dubbing a fitted-blanket-with-sleeves due to how downright cozy it is. One reviewer swears that it's the ~softest and comfiest~ cardigan they've ever owned which, wow, what high praise.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Love love love this cardigan! It’s so SOFT!! It’s like being wrapped in a blanket. It’s so warm and cozy! And it's oversized, which is just how I love them!" —Tracey

    42. Personalized shampoo and conditioner individually tailored to suit your hair needs — simply complete a hair quiz before deciding on a color and fragrance. And said quiz? 'Tis legit. Prepare to bubble in quick questions about goals, structure, and scalp moisture (raise your hand if you, too, have oily roots that rival that of a New York pizza slice 🙃).

    Function of Beauty

    These prods also make your shower look straight off a Pinterest board. You'll be able to choose from multiple colors (pink, blue, green, orange, and more) as well multiple scents (think everything from peach to eucalyptus). You can even customize the bottle with your name at no extra charge.

    43. An electric frother if you spend more time watching ~fancy~ coffee being made then you do, well, drinking it. Barista-level drinks are yours at the press of a button: Pour in your milk of choice (nondairy options included), choose one out of four foam options, and that's it. That cappuccino will taste like it's been teleported fresh from Italy.

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE this frother so much that I’ve started giving it as gifts. Within three minutes, or less, I can make my own fancy coffee right at home. We also use it for warming milk for single servings of hot cocoa for our kids. The milk is at the perfect temp. It is easy to use, easy to clean and it looks great (not an eye sore on the counter). It makes me look forward to my morning coffee." —Jenn

    44. A set of smart plugs you can control through a voice-enabled Alexa. Getting up in the middle of [yet another] Harry Potter marathon to turn off that obnoxiously bright lamp? Nope. Make Alexa do it instead.

    Promising review: "I have three different string lights that I like to have on during certain hours in the evening. These lights used to be hooked up to another smart plug with remote control. I replaced them with the Gosund outlets and they work flawlessly! All three lights are scheduled to turn on/off at the same time. If I’m ever going to be out later, I can change the schedule or turn on remotely." —Linda M.

    45. A battery-operated LED light that gives a whole new meaning to having your ~head in the clouds~. This accent piece even has three different settings (fade, flash, and strobe) and basically turns your bedroom into an art exhibit.

    46. A Joseph Joseph cutting board so you can chop ingredients and then quickly transfer them ~straight~ into the pan thanks to an ergonomic handle. This bebe is also foldable for easy storage and dishwasher-safe, so you truly cannot go wrong.

    47. NatureLab Tokyo Perfect Oil Mist – it delivers stunning shine with a single spritz. Platinum fiber, pearl extract, hyaluronic acid, and grape stem cells say ~be gone~ to dull hair for a glossy mane that won't feel weighed down. We love that "I got a trim" look without chopping off inches of hair.

    Promising review: "This is my favorite hair oil EVER!! It smells delicious and does not weigh your hair down. It leaves your hair so silky!! I got some with my IPSY and I can’t stop using it. I had to get on here and order some more." —Kana Crumby

    Get it from Amazon for $17.

    48. Sponge cloths so they can recreate satisfying before-and-after cleaning shots in their own abode. These biodegradable beauts are fabricated with a durable cellulose material that is ultra absorbent *and* reusable — they can just chuck 'em in the dishwasher or washing machine when needed.

    Promising review: "I rarely write reviews, but these deserve a shoutout. SO much more substantial than Handiwipes and you can really, really scrub with them but they never feel yucky like a sponge does. I have soaked them in bleach, thrown them in the washer, and they come out great every time. I've used the same two for a month now and they still look great! When they go downhill, I can compost them. I only wish they had a few other colors, maybe a royal blue or sage green?" —Amazon Customer
