    amazon.com

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing! I have super duper oily skin...yes, even my eye lids. Generally, my eye makeup is MIA by mid-afternoon. I was stoked to discover my eyeshadow was still in tact and looking perfect after 10 long hours. Went to sleep, didn't remove my eye makeup, and it was still there the next morning. Again...I love this stuff. Unbelievable product." —Nikki Z

    Get it from Amazon for $4.29.

    3. A starter kit that turns growing avocados into a foolproof ordeal: All you'll have to do is grab a clean pit, set it into the AvoSeedo bowl, place said bowl in water, and that's it! You're done. Your very own indoor produce will begin to grow in about three to six weeks and not even a finger will have been lifted in the process.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "If you want to grow avocados easily, this is priceless. Literally set the avocado pit in this vesicle, set it in a bowl of water and forget it. The root emerged in a few weeks and within months, the avocado plant is humongous. Right now the problem is what to do with a huge avocado plant indoors in the winter. its been less than a year and my avocado plant is bushy and tall." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95.

    4. A grooming glove that lets you pet your pup or cat while also helping them get rid of the excess fur that would otherwise shed and be laid to rest all over your apartment. It even stimulates skin oils, promotes a softer and shinier coat, and can be thrown into the wash when it needs a deep clean itself.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This glove is perfect for our one kitty who hates to be brushed. Our family recently added kitty number three, a big beautiful long-haired Maine Coon who despises being brushed or bathed. It was such a struggle as fine cat hair started taking over our life. Honestly, I did not think this grooming glove would work, but let me just say it is wonderful. Our kitty just loves the feeling it gives him, and we love the astounding amount of hair that is now in the glove and not on every surface in our home. Thank you wonderful seller. We LOVE this glove." —Colleen5991

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    5. A daily face (and body!) Cerave moisturizing cream that is a miracle product for dryness, redness, and breakouts. This hypoallergenic, noncomedogenic, fragrance-free face cream is made with hyaluronic acid and ceramides to provide nongreasy 24-hour hydration.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "If you are doubting this product, stop what you are doing and buy it right now. It WILL change your life. I had SEVERE eczema on my face and it was incredibly painful: I had red, inflamed, itchy, flaky, and disgusting skin. I tried everything, from organic to high-priced products, and nothing worked until I picked up a $2 sample of this at Walgreens after reading the reviews online. Well, it is a miracle product. My face feels amazing. I use it twice daily, and my eczema is gone. It has also diminished my acne breakouts by 98%. I also want to add that I didn't get anything for free or was asked to do this review, I just honestly needed to share my experience." —Susana Rodriguez

    Get it from Amazon for $15.06.

    Get them from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in seven colors).

    7. An electric s'mores maker to bring the great outdoors into the comfort of your own home. This unit comes equipped with two stainless steel roasting forks and will get you heaven (heaven in this context = a perfectly toasted marshmallow) in mere minutes every single time.

    Promising review: "It was a cold, windy, snow filled day. The kids were getting cabin fever being cooped up inside so it was perfect having this mini s'more maker. We watched movies, drank hot cocoa, and ate delicious s’mores ALL from the comfort of my cozy bed." —Timothy Goeres

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    8. Mental Perk: A Friends Quiz Book by Rich Jepson packed with (you guessed it!) trivia surrounding your favorite TV show. While the questions become harder as the quizzes progress, you know damn well that you've watched the show a whopping 97 times and therefore will probably breeze right through it. But that's okay! It'll still be an A+ gift to yourself.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is not for the occasional viewer, which is exactly what I was looking for! I have seen every episode more than I’d like to admit and these questions really made me think! I will be using this to create trivia for a Friends-themed party." —yamaha742

    10. A slouchy beanie because the holidays are great, but here's a gentle reminder that weather around the holidays is not great: it's freezing. Give yourself the gift of keeping your noggin warm.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I basically wore this beanie our entire Europe trip. I was looking for a basic black beanie (which was somehow difficult to find) and this was perfect. Matched everything, kept me warm, and you could wear it both pulled down and slouchy and still looked good." —Doug Weable

    Get it from Amazon for $14.70 (available in 48 colors).

    11. A flight flap that is deceivingly strong despite the fact that it's as thin as a piece of paper. It easily molds into the seat in front of you or can remain upright on the tray table, holding everything from your Kindle to you iPhone perfectly in place.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is the ultimate must-have for long plane rides. It's moldable so you can literally make it fit ANYWHERE! It is also strong and when you're done, you can easily just flatten it back out and toss it in your bag. It doesn't weigh anything and it's only about as thick as a thin piece of cardboard so it can live in a purse, backpack, or even be used as a big bookmark. I love this things. Now I just have to find out how many folds it's good for!" —Kasey Cassone

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    12. As Seen On TV storage bags perfect for anyone who purchases produce in bulk: These reusable babies keep food fresh for a longer period of time, meaning everything from bananas and strawberries to asparagus and romaine will stay ripe for up to nine additional days.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Wow, they really work. I am a big warehouse shopper and in the past often couldn’t eat all those berries or lettuce before they went bad. So I followed directions and made sure produce was dry (lettuce, spinach, asparagus, and blueberries). For the lettuce and asparagus, saw a little condensation in the bag, so put a paper towel in the bag where moisture was accumulating. Two weeks later (less several servings), berries were almost as fresh as Day 1. Lettuce was still crisp and crunchy (romaine), and only a few pieces of spinach were starting to wilt. Asparagus were crisp as well." —BAS

    Get a pack of eight medium, eight large, and four extra large bags from Amazon for $9.88.

    13. A Garnier Fructis leave-in conditioner to give your dry and fried ends some much-needed TLC in the form of argan oil moisture. Plus, reviewers swear this cult-favorite product is an absolute gem at defining curls without weighing 'em down! It also shares the same price point as a cup of coffee, which is a ginormous plus.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have very curly hair, live in a very humid state, and this stuff works great! I don't even have to brush my hair most of the time...I just run my fingers through with this and it makes my curls so much tighter. Love this stuff and I use it on me and my daughter." —Nicole

    Get it from Amazon for $2.99.

    14. A swing dress that will be on constant rotation in your wardrobe. The jersey knit material is super lightweight and the design itself isn't clingy, which basically means you can count on this as a chic update to your most beloved pajamas.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this dress on a whim because I needed a plain black dress. I spent a few hours at the mall trying to look for something like this before giving up and ordering this one hoping it would be ok. Well, it has surpassed my expectations! This dress is a thick, cottony soft, flowy material, is so flattering, and it does not wrinkle easily." —T.Fia

    Get it from Amazon for $17.85+ (available in sizes S-XL and in five colors).

    15. An attachable aerator to make your less-than-$10 wine taste like it was sourced from Napa and aged for 10 centuries. "I'm getting some dry notes of expensive," you'll say after taking that first sip.

    amazon.com

    This attachable aerator deposits oxygen into your wine, which improves taste and allows aromas to EXPAND.

    Promising review: "These wine aerators are FABULOUS! I do wine demos for different wineries and I don't always have time to let a bottle of wine breathe properly before a demo starts. These greatly enhance the flavor and it makes all the difference in the world. My sales numbers increased greatly. And you can't beat the price!" —Ash Bash.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    16. A Bella Jade setting spray that (thanks to an impressive green tea formula) is truly a makeup jack of all trades: It can reduce dryness (no more cake-y foundation), give makeup a dewy finish, control excess oil, and provide the perfect mid-afternoon pick-me-up. Just give your complexion a little spritz and...that's it. Finger, meet button.

    instagram.com / Via @bellajadebotanicals

    Promising review: "This is it. This is my holy grail setting spray. It's super lightweight and I can apply it between layers of foundation and powder. As with any other setting spray, if you concentrate too much on one area, you will have pooling and it could affect your makeup, so I would recommend starting with a fine mist and layering if needed. This is not drying and has not caused my make-up to cake. This is a great everyday setting spray." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $12.25.

    17. A Bed Head waver capable of doing the Impossible (yes, Impossible with a capital "I"). This miracle tool allows even the straightest of manes to hold the most beautiful beach waves: Just wrap your hair around the barrel, wait a few seconds, and you're done! Minimal effort required. Several tears shed. That tousled beach hair is yours.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This heats up to 400° Fahrenheit, has dual voltage which means you can use it internationally, uses tourmaline ceramic technology for maximum shine and minimum frizz, and even has an auto-shutoff feature.

    Promising review: "I am addicted to buying stuff on Amazon but this is by far THE BEST thing I've ever bought. I don't have the patience to curl my hair with a regular curling iron and can't even manage to make one curl with my flat iron even though my hair stylist has showed me how like 20 times. This was SO easy! This iron gives you beautiful, wavy, sexy, beachy hair. It also gets pretty hot so if your hair is hard to curl, this will probably do the trick. I wish I had found this years ago! It's witchcraft." —Bodhi Stewart

    Get it from Amazon for $26.93.

    18. An O'Keeffe's cream to give your dry, callused piggies an intense dose of moisture. I get it: Boots season is here, the need for a pedicure is gone, but this is the perfect way to keep your feet smooth without breaking the bank.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I wouldn't blame you if you threw up a little looking at the before and after pics. I'm originally from Miami so it's almost 365 days of flip flops or open toe shoes. I've tried EVERY lotion and nothing worked until I came across this. From day one, this soothed my crackled heels (my heels were so badly cracked that it hurt to walk). Now I go to my yoga class barefoot without feeling embarrassed." —MISS_305

    Get it from Amazon for $7.29.

    19. A passport case complete with card, boarding pass, and pen slots for anyone who loves to travel and has an Instagram account that is the envy of their family...but is also extremely disorganized. Stop aimlessly throwing important documents into your purse, friend. It won't end well.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this passport holder! It has room for my passport, driver’s license, three credit cards, several hundred dollars in cash (hidden from view in the side pocket adjacent to the passport pocket), and my boarding pass, with a separate pocket/space for each item. I love it. I didn’t even need to bring my wallet with me!" —Victoria Elias

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (available in 19 colors).

    20. A bottle of Just Syrup organic molasses with only two ingredients: organic California pomegranates and organic California dates. Drizzle this onto any food (here's looking at you, dull salad) for a touch of sweetness that's not packed with refined sugars and additives.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "OMG, can I buy this by the gallon? This is simply incredible. If you love pomegranates then you will love this versatile syrup. So happy with the quality." —cocobe

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    21. A dishwasher-safe handheld scraper that will get all the burnt-up food crisps permanently off your very expensive cookware set. (It also is great at removing gum and stickers, because we love a product that boasts versatility.)

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have been told I cackle madly when using these. Where there used to be frustration and curse words there is now glee and sweet satisfaction. Scraping pans, tins, and tray sheets has become a peach since I bought these. Originally bought for my cast irons but the other cookware wanted in on that non-scratch, sweet sweet scrape action." —Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $2.69.

    22. Self-adhesive patches to help you remain blister-free! Just apply these thin patches onto whatever part of your shoe irritates your hooves, then rest assured that they'll stay in place for up to 300 miles — no more chafing. It's all so simple.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "As a runner who routinely covers distances up to 13.1 miles, any extra friction on my feet can lead to nasty blisters in short order. Even buying the exact same brand, model, and size of running shoe does not guarantee a perfect, friction-free fit; even if the four pairs you bought before gave you no problems. This was the case with my latest pair of sneakers. I can't say enough good things about these patches. The slick surface allows your foot to glide right down where it's supposed to go, instead of getting hung up on edges. During that time, the patch never came loose at all, and I still have two more large patches left after the one I installed today." —Jethro

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $14.85.

    23. A Dash electric hand mixer here to answer the prayers of anyone with limited kitchen space. Why? Because it's only two pounds (so compact) and storage is a breeze: Eject the beaters and attach them to the built-in storage clip. Talk about easy peasy.

    amazon.com

    Psst, this hand mixer has three speeds: low, medium, and high.

    Promising review: "This thing is awesome. I’ve never had a hand mixer before and always wanted a small one since our kitchen doesn’t have a ton of storage space. It’s cute and worked well when making whipped cream." —mary m.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in four colors).

    24. An ultra soft knit sweater you can slip on over any ensemble for a hint of both warmth and coziness. This layer truly pairs well with everything in your closet, from that tight LBD to that leggings and white tee duo.

    amazon.com

    And it has pockets AKA cha ching.

    Promising review: "Absolutely loving this sweater!! The material is so soft and cozy. The length is perfect to wear with leggings and the color is beautiful!" —Jolene

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 30 colors).

    25. An Ancient Greek Remedy facial oil that is truly a skincare jack-of-all-trades. This stuff softens skin, helps heal acne, aids in ridding scarring and stretch marks, and provides a large dose of 🗣️MOISTURE. This blend of extra virgin olive, almond oil, grape seed oil, lavender essential oil, and vitamin e can also be used to moisturize your cuticles, strengthen your nails, and can be used on dry, itchy scalps that have begun to flake.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have combination skin on my face, my scalp gets dry, and I get mild eczema on my ankles, calves, arms and hands, AND my hair is oily at the root and dry on the ends. However, after using this product for three months, ALL of those problems are gone!!! I have clear and healthy skin on my face. No embarrassing flakes on my shoulders. No combination oily / dry skin anywhere. It smells GREAT. It's gentle and free of harmful chemicals and parabens. My hair is NOT oily, and the ends are nourished and healthy. It's safe to use on my children and my bf's daughter who has severe eczema. I could go on and on about this product. I really could. I wish there were more stars to give them. Everyone that uses this (at my house) raves about it as well. Try it out and I swear you will NOT be disappointed." —Crystle D

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    26. An executive mini-sandbox you can keep at your desk to help retain calm and relaxation despite that passive-aggressive "per my last email..." note that just landed in your inbox.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Fun and therapeutic. With a recent job promotion, I had to adjust from working at home to a dreary existence in an office cubicle and every time I look at this mini beach sandbox, it brings a smile to my face. I find taking a few moments a day, playing with the sandbox to be very calming and therapeutic. Getting used to the stress of a new job and office life was at times overwhelming but this simple little sandbox was very relaxing as a short term escape. I find myself repeatedly filling the bucket and dumping it upside down throughout the day. Sand will occasionally spill but isn’t a big deal to clean up. It’s a great stress reliever and coworkers often visit my cubicle just to rake the sand." —jfromLA

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    27. A non-toxic, paraben-free Blueland kit featured on Shark Tank and here to change your daily cleaning rituals for, well, forever. Here's how it works: Purchase three reusable bottles, then fill each with water and drop in a specific tablet (multi-use, glass, and bathroom) until empty. After that? Keep the bottles and simply continue reordering tablets at $2 a pop — not only will this save you a ton of money, but it also prevents you from unnecessarily tossing out a ton of plastic on the daily.

    instagram.com / Via @blueland, instagram.com / Via @blueland

    Each tablet and refill is packaged in compostable paper and comes in a variety of scents that aren't overwhelming to the nostrils: the multi-surface tablet is fresh lemon, the shower tablet is eucalyptus mint, and the glass/mirror tablet has no scent whatsoever.

    Promising review: "I saw this on Shark Tank and loved that it would not only help me save money but would also help the environment, so I bought the kit. The only concern that I had was if it would clean just as well as my previous products. Well... IT DOES! Blueland now has a life-long customer!" —Richard T

    Get this kit from Blueland for $29.

    28. Silicone brushes that are an absolute necessity for every skincare aficionado out there. This lets you slather on that thick mud mask without a) getting your hands covered in said mud mask, and b) prevents you from picking up (and wasting) excess product which means money saved.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this product! It makes it so much easier to apply my mud face masks and prevents me from using too much product. I can easily apply the correct amount of product over my face and the brush is also easy to clean." —Traci Fuqua

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $3.98.

    29. A toothpaste holder complete with a toothpaste squeezer to make sure you get every last minty drop of cleanliness trapped in that damn tube. (One reviewer even describes this as ingenious and TBH, he is not wrong.)

    amazon.com

    There have been mornings when I think I've run out of the toothpaste and then am forced to have bad breath BUT! There is always some toothpaste left — you just have to squeeze it out.

    Promising review: "This device is ingenious! Wished I’d known this product exist sooner. I use Arm & Hammer toothpaste which still comes in the standard small cap so having it prompt up behind the bathRoom cabinet was impossible. Now, problem solved. It’s a small invention that made a positive impact. I thank the person who thought of it." —Jl33NYC

    Get it from Amazon for $5.39.

    30. Reusable acupressure bands that apply pressure to your wrist and which reviewers swear are an absolute lifesaver at preventing all travel-related nausea (from road trips to plane rides to seasickness).

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I suffer from terrible motion sickness on airplanes, boats, amusement park rides, and sometimes in cars. I bought these bands in hopes they would help me on a flight from Texas to England to Ireland. I've used medication in the past with mixed results. But nothing has ever stopped the nausea altogether. Nothing but these wrist bands, that is. I didn't have a single moment of sickness whatsoever. I combined them with Dramamine and I felt great the entire flight and even ate a full meal, something I never would have dared in the past. They worked equally as well on the return trip, even through some pretty severe turbulence." —Mandy Ratliff

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    31. A Sabrina Silver polishing cloth to breathe new life into your collection of silver, brass, and gold metals that have tarnished to the point of (seemingly) no return. Not only will this restore everything from antiques to jewelry, but the non-abrasive cotton material won't scratch anything up in the process.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My antique silver ring had been hidden away in an old jewelry box for about 10 years. I recently found it and my once beautiful ring was black. I tried using a liquid jewelry cleaner that has you place your jewelry in a tray and submerge it for ten minutes. I even used the little brush that was included to scrub it. It didn't work. I bought this polishing cloth. Within moments, my ring was beautiful. It took about 5 minutes of consistent rubbing to restore the ring and there is a lot of black on the cloth now. I am so happy! I can't believe the cloth really works!" —L. Maldonado

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $15.99.

    32. A Neutrogrena eyeshadow palette here to make smoky eye styles seems significantly less intimidating. This comes with four pigmented hues and contains a cheat sheet on the back of the palette: a helpful illustrated guide highlights where you should apply each of the below shades.

    instagram.com / Via @neutrogena

    And FYI, these shadows are equipped with built-in primer which means that not only will your smoky eye look A+ — but it'll also last.

    Promising review: "Love this eyeshadow. Very smooth, blends easy, little fall-out and rich color. Better than my expensive shadows!" —jp

    Get it from Amazon for $9.12 (available in three colors).

    33. A tiny knife sharpener because that knife of yours can barely slice through bread, let alone a steak. This features two sharpening options (coarse and fine), and is designed with a non-slip base to ensure that it stays put whilst in use.

    Elizabeth Lily / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "Do you find yourself hating the knifes you cut with? I certainly did. Always grumbling about not being able to cut a freakin' bagel or tomato! Although, as they say, it's often more difficult to cut something soft than it is something hard. In any case, do yourself a favor and get this very cheap sharpener. It works like a charm in a mere two or three swipes/pulls on the unit. Honestly, I can't believe I never thought to have one on hand before. It should be a staple in every kitchen." —Matt

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99 (available in three colors).

    Read one BuzzFeeder's review of this knife sharpener.

    34. An Eva Naturals face serum because adult acne is garbage and according to reviewers, this stuff truly helps. Ingredients like hyaluronic acid, retinol, aloe, salicylic acid, and niacinamide work in harmony to solve your most annoying skin problems from acne and dark spots to dehydration and redness.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have never felt more compelled to write a product review before. This stuff is INCREDIBLE. I have tried almost everything to improve my skin. I continue to get acne in my mid-30s and literally everything else I've tried has not worked, including prescription topical cream and oral medication. This has saved my skin! I have had very few breakouts, and if anything pops up, this takes care of it quickly! My skin feels moisturized and looks smoother and healthier overall. This is truly one of the best purchases I've ever made. I'm thankful I stumbled upon this serum!" —J.C. Denton

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    35. An OXO brush set capable of getting into those tiny crevices that are otherwise impossible to clean. Consider these durable bristles to be your new sidekick when it comes to scrubbing grout, stovetops, that pesky space underneath the sink strainer, the corners of your shower, and the list goes on and on.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    We hate cleaning, but we also love the satisfaction of peeling away a particular stubborn piece of dirt caught in weird places throughout our home.

    Promising review: "You didn't know you need this, but you do. These are amazing. If you like visible results when you clean, these are fantastic for details like the corners of the shower, anywhere with caulk, mystery gritty stains in the sink of the rental house, between the faucet and the backsplash, etc." —mssmith

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $5.99 (available in two colors).

    36. A reusable sticky adhesive bra perfect for deep V-neck tops, backless dresses, and strappy shirts in which a bra band would look like garbage. This silicone bra provides the perfect amount of support while staying in place all night (HOORAY) and isn't painful to take off.

    amazon.com

    Psst, this bra also comes with nipple covers.

    Promising review: "Seriously, having large (DDD) boobs can really put a damper on trying to wear cute shirts in the summer. Some shirts you can’t wear a bra with and going braless is 100% not an option, so I heavily rely on sticky bras. I definitely prefer the silicone ones over the cloth ones and this bra just reinforces that opinion. It sticks so well and is completely invisible, even under the clingiest shirts I own. Another huge bonus is the nipple covers! I have used many different types over the years and have found that the silicone ones can sometimes look puffy under certain shirts, but these covers are thin and (again) cannot be seen under clingy clothes at all. They really come in handy if you know you will be outside and run the risk of sweating off your bra since the nipple covers do not have that issue." —Sarah F.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes A-F cup and three colors).

    37. A gluten- and cruelty-free Essence mascara with a clump-free, smudge-proof formula here to up your lash game like whoa. Just a few swipes of this will have everyone asking you the most coveted compliment-in-the-form-of-a-question: are those your real lashes?

    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.

    38. 90 Degree By Reflex high-waisted leggings designed with a snazzy waistband that will *drumroll please* actually stay put. Take those moments of hoisting up your leggings halfway through yoga because they won't stop slipping and sliding down your torso, and then kiss those moments goodbye.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I own about five pairs of leggings from this brand, and I am FOREVER SOLD!!! If anyone were to ask me which leggings I love I would immediately mention these. I prefer these over my Nike & Adidas leggings any day. They are also squat-proof, fit so comfortably, and are very flattering! The pricing for the quality of these leggings are amazing." —Victoria
