    37 Things That'll Make You Say, "Well, There Goes All My Money"

    A zit-zapping cucumber toner, soft graphic tees inspired by The Office, a nourishing mask that will bring your hair back from the dead, and more! Much more!

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 β€” prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A silicone massage brush that boosts the effectiveness of your daily cleanser by adding some gentle exfoliation Γ  la BPA-free bristles, which ensure your pores have been stripped of all remaining makeup.


    This silicone cleanser dries quickly, meaning it doesn't act as a breeding ground for germs and bacteria (you know, the kind that can cause pimples and other havoc).

    Promising review: "This is awesome. I'm a licensed esthetician and know a thing or two about skincare, but unfortunately, I have such sensitive skin that most exfoliants I've tried really irritate my skin and can end up triggering eczema or psoriasis flares. This is a gentle enough way to exfoliate that it gets the job done for me without irritation. As a plus, the massage-like effect it has would aid in microcirculation and probably aid cell turnover (as exfoliation does in general)." β€”Michael Schiffmiller

    2. A soft graphic tee you can consider office-appropriate attire. If you work for a paper company based in Scranton, that is.


    Promising review: "I freaking love this top. Soft, comfy, and cute!" β€”Leanne L.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95 (available in sizes S-XXXL).

    3. Solaroil to banish the bane of your existence β€” weak and brittle nails with cuticles that look like they were mauled by an animal. This formula is so effective, I guess you can say it really nails it. Eh?

    Just massage this oil into your nails and cuticles every night before going to bed. With daily use, your nails will begin to grow and strengthen (seriously, just read the overwhelmingly positive reviews) and your ripped-up cuticles will begin to heal/not look completely terrible.

    Promising review: "HOLY GRAIL PRODUCT. All my life, I've had super weak and brittle nails that would instantly break the second they grew out a tiny bit. This oil has changed EVERYTHING!! I’m shocked. I noticed after about a week of nightly use that my nails are growing (fast) and not breaking." β€”K. Black

    Get it from Amazon for $8.50.

    4. A food saver available in 13 yummy styles (Tomato! Lemon! Garlic!) to extend the freshness of fruits and veggies. "I love this from my head to-ma-toes." β€”you.


    These BPA-free savers are dishwasher-safe + are super easy to spot. You'll no longer spend merciless minutes searching for that leftover red onion from yesterday β€” the packaging will help you find it right away.

    Promising review: "Love these veggie savers! My vegetable drawer can become a bit disorganized and veggies that have already been cut up get lost amongst the other veggies and become hard to find. You end up using a fresh bell pepper forgetting you already had one half-used! That is no longer a problem with this. Plus, the container looks nice on the fridge shelf, doesn't get lost in the shuffle, and adds color to your fridge while protecting and extending the shelf life of produce." β€”Mariposa

    Get it from Amazon for $6.06+ (available in 13 styles).

    5. A paperback boxed set complete with the To All the Boys I've Loved Before trilogy. Would Laura Jean herself have her nose buried in these books? Probably.


    Promising review: "I loved this series! I found the books thanks to Netflix, but Netflix left out and changed a lot from the books, so I'm glad I bought them! The books are always better anyways." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $21.15.

    6. A weekly hair mask that will bring your fried 'do back from the DEAD. This hydrates the heck out of dry, over-processed, color-treated manes and brings back that natural bounce and shine.


    This mask uses a magical blend of olive, meadowfoam, and sweet almond extracts to really lock moisture into each strand of hair.

    Promising review: "This is a miracle product. My hair was so dry and crunchy, and my blond ends looked and felt completely fried and dead. I was about to go to my hairdresser to either get more hair cut off (it’s already pretty short) or ask for a professional conditioning treatment. As a last resort DIY effort, I purchased this product based on stellar reviews and I’m so glad I did! This saved me at least $70 at the salon. After just ONE time using this, my hair has been transformed. It is now soft, shiny, and smooth. I hope this magical and affordable conditioner stays around forever!" β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $12.62.

    7. A cucumber toner lotion here to kick acne's derriere. This non-drying, non-irritating formula will disinfect your pores, prevent excess shine, and reduce icky bacteria β€” the kind that causes angry pimple apocalypses.


    Promising review: "This toner was a serious game-changer for my face. I originally received a small sample from the company about a month ago, and I had to buy more before I ran out. Before using this product, my face was both oily and dry. I suffered from extreme cystic acne and eczema on the lower portion of my face, while my t-zone and forehead was like an oil slick. Within DAYS of using this, the redness in my face completely diminished, and any existing acne I had disappeared without a trace. While I still have a few cystic acne spots, my skin would not be how it is now without this toner." β€”lbest

    Get it from Amazon for $15.

    8. A sturdy under-the-desk mount that keeps heavy headphones out of sight, out of mind. No more shoving your expensive Beats into random desk/junk drawers!


    This mount is also SUPER easy to apply β€” just remove the protective layer over the adhesive, stick it underneath your desk (it works on glass, hard plastic, metal, and finished wood), and BAM! Installation is complete.

    Promising review: "This headphone stand is great. I have two relatively heavy headphones that I hang under my desk at work, and this holds both of them without any issues. Helps keep my desk clear, fewer wires to deal with, and it's a good hiding technique, too." β€”Rachel V.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.95.

    9. A lightweight button-down shirt with a breezy silhouette you'll want to pair with your favorite denim. A look that is stylish and easy? Call me Britney because I'm saying ~gimme more~.


    Get it from Nordstrom for $29.40 (originally $49, available in sizes XXS-XL and in four colors).

    10. A portkey coaster that works pretty terribly, actually. If you put down a drink, expect to never see it again. It'll probably end up in Diagon Alley or something like that.


    Get it from Katie Abey Design on Etsy for $4.77.

    11. A fridge deodorizer you can fill with baking soda (or activated charcoal) to get rid of that STENCH. If your ice box has unbearable BO, consider this a 24/7 deodorant.


    This has a replacement indicator that lets you know when it needs to be refilled with baking soda/activated charcoal, and can be thrown in the dishwasher when it needs a good cleansing.

    Promising review: "Another commenter mentioned using activated charcoal in this product, and let me tell you, it kicks butt. I had found rotten meat and dairy in my fridge, and the smell could knock you out. After cleaning, I put the Chilly Mama in with the activated charcoal and in hours, the smell was gone! Not masked or lightened, but gone!! And it works really well in the freezer too - no weird staleness anymore!" β€”O truant Muse

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    12. Caramel popcorn that will transform your next movie marathon night into one of delicious decadence. This is, according to reviewers, the best caramel popcorn you will ever consume.


    This popcorn comes in a resealable bag (how thoughtful), although it's highly likely that you'll finish it in one sitting.

    ALSO! It's available in a delicious sea salt and pretzel flavor that is making my mouth water just thinking about it.

    Promising review: "This is THE BEST caramel corn I've ever had. If the house gets very quiet at night, my family knows they can find me blissfully curled up in my chair with this glorious bag of goodness while watching a favorite TV program. I have ordered this popcorn many times now and each bag is as good, if not better, than the last. Always fresh and oh so scrumptious!" β€”Mickeylyn

    Get it from Amazon for $2.98 (available in two flavors).

    13. A vanity organizer for all the mundane items you use on the daily. Whether it's hairspray or your overpriced perfume, consider it a small miracle that you'll now *always* be able to spot your deodorant.


    Deodorant = the item that I can NEVER FIND in the morning. I have no idea why! Anyone else?

    Promising review: "I wish I bought this sooner! This was literally exactly what I needed to clean up my super cluttered bathroom sink. I use this for all my hair products, lotions, and face creams. It's so nice that everything has a place now! It’s perfect and so worth the awesome price." β€”Kellie Pape

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    14. A family-friendly card game that's similar to charades in that you draw or act out your card while your team attempts to figure out what the heck you're doing. Now good luck moonlighting as a unicorn riding a bicycle...


    ...which is one of the many options you can pick up. This game has easy and hard modes on each card, adorable illustrations, and guarantees endless hours of fun.

    Promising review: "I bought this to play with my family on New Year’s Eve and OMG, it was so much fun! We had such a good time playing and trying to guess what the other person was trying to draw, act, or describe. Lots of laughs and happiness! I just regret not buying it sooner." β€”Bunny

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    15. A racerback sports bra perfect for low-impact workouts. It's also made from a seamless, knit material for that ~barely there~ level of comfort.


    Promising review: "These bras are comfortable, breathable, and lightweight. The colors are fun and bright, and I was able to get some that already match my workout pants. These are nicely supportive without being too tight. I normally wear a 38 DDD, and the XL is perfect for me when I'm hiking or doing yoga." β€”Broesph

    Get it from Amazon for $11.46+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in 13 colors).

    16. A jewelry dish you can personalize with dates and initials. If you're searching for an anniversary gift, here is the sappiest (and most practical) present to buy.


    To personalize the above piece, just leave a note at checkout for the seller!

    Get it from The Painted Press on Etsy for $17+.

    17. A spring water facial spray that may seem like a regular can of water β€” but can a regular can of water sooth eczema, calm sunburn, reduce rosacea flare-ups, set your makeup, and refresh dull and tired skin? I think not.

    Promising review: "Its.....a can of thermal spring water. I don't know what else is in it and I don't really care, because it works. I had initially received one in my Ipsy bag and fell in love with it right away. This is great for calming sensitive skin, sunburn, any type of skin irritation, cooling down from being overheated (put it in the fridge for awhile and it feels AMAZING), or even just setting your makeup if it's looking too matte. If you have rosacea, this is a miracle product and you should buy it immediately." β€”SPO77

    Get it from Amazon for $9+ (available in four sizes).

    18. Matty Matheson: A Cookbook for fans of β€” surprise β€” Matty Matheson. Learn how to make everything from bologna bowls to bomb lasagna, all while reading fun stories of Matheson's life in the culinary world.


    Promising review: "If you like watching Matty on YouTube, then you will love this book. It has everything from bologna bowls that take 60 seconds in the microwave, to exquisite seafood dinners that take all day to prepare. The short stories that Matty has behind every dish are funny yet touching, and the pictures are beautiful. I consider myself a subpar cook, but there is so much I can learn from this book with the very simple instructions that Matty provides." β€”nejanson9

    Get it from Amazon for $23.79.

    19. High-waisted skinny jeans made from a luxuriously stretchy, soft denim that will have your leggings banished to your closet corner. These denim babies will be just as comfortable + look a lot more polished.


    Get them from Nordstrom for $44.40 (originally $74, available in sizes 23-37).

    20. Heeled sandals with a platform capable of making you fall head over ~heels~ in love. Why? Not only are these ridiculously attractive, but they're also ridiculously comfortable. / Via @chineselaundry

    Promising review: "I bought these heels for a wedding and I was able to dance all night without feeling any pain in my feet! The platform balances the high heel really nicely." β€”Sandra Alt

    Get them from Amazon for $31.48+ (available in sizes 5-11 and in 14 colors).

    21. A stainless steel whistling kettle so great, Kermit will refuse to sip tea brewed in anything else. This nifty thing is designed with an easy-pour spout, a stay-cool handle, and a removable lid that makes it SUPER easy to clean.


    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $39.99 (originally $56.99).

    22. A waterproof pouch that certainly doesn't suck-ullent at keeping wet swimsuits, dirty socks, and gross leggings stowed neatly away in your gym bag.


    Promising review: "This is absolutely perfect! My favorite thing to do at the gym is to swim, and I can just wring out my suit, throw it in the wet bag, toss it in my duffel, and nothing else gets wet. A great investment and not bad for the price!" β€”Andrea Dupree

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95 (available in 17 colors).

    23. A velvet swivel chair to turn your home office into a thing of chic beauty. Fire up that Pinterest app, folks, because you're about to file this under your "home decor inspo" board.

    TJ Maxx

    Get it from TJ Maxx for $79.99 (compare at $104).

    24. A waterproof ski jacket you'll want to pack for your next frigid vacation. Not only will this keep you warm and dry, but it is also designed with pockets large enough to hold your most essential items (like...your phone).

    Promising review: "I recently took a trip to Iceland, where the average daytime temperature was in the low 30s to low 40s (Fahrenheit), and it was forecast to rain on and off for our whole trip with the possibility of snow. This jacket was perfect for my needs! It was totally waterproof and very warm, roomy enough to wear thick layers underneath, and the pockets were easily accessible and held my phone, keys, and sunglasses with room to spare. The breast pocket looks small, but it is large enough to hold a smartphone, which was useful when I had to wear a harness around my waist that made the waist pockets inaccessible." β€”toastisyummy

    Get it from Amazon for $78.89 (available in sizes S-XXL and in six colors).

    25. A unicorn stoneware mug because drinking coffee is a magical experience and I feel like your coffee cup should reflect that.

    Urban Outfitters

    This mug is also dishwasher-safe, which further proves how magical it is.

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $15 (originally $16).

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

    Promising review: "I worked in a fine jewelry store for several years that sold this product. I was always impressed with the instant shine the diamond stick provided! The brush tip is very helpful for getting under the stones and in the setting where gunk builds up, which reduces that brilliant shine. I recently got engaged and immediately purchased a diamond dazzle stick of my own. You simply brush, rinse, dry and go. I don't feel this product replaces the need to professionally clean your jewelry every now and then, but it does help with the maintenance of that new, shiny sparkle." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $5.49.

    27. A brushed knit cardigan you'll want to store in your freezing cold office, where even Antarctica would seem warm in comparison.

    Forever 21

    Price: $24.90 (available in sizes 0X-3X)

    28. A stress toy you'll want to squeeze whenever you're having a terrible day and in a bad mood. I guess this is the perfect thing to have when you've got a ~chip~ on your shoulder.

    Promising review: "This silly and realistic looking potato squeeze toy was the perfect joke gift for my kiddo, who loves potatoes and jokes about potatoes. Give it a squeeze and relieve some stress. Perfect for the couch potato in your life, too." β€”ScoutMama

    Get it from Amazon for $7.62.

    29. A perfume infused with juniper berry, magnolia, and papyrus wood scents β€” all of which come together to form a musky, citrus-honey fragrance you'll fall in love with at first spritz.

    All Saints

    I personally own this fragrance and can attest to how LOVELY it smells. Plus, the packaging is delightful β€” it's got a floral back that looks like a piece of artwork on your vanity.

    Get it from AllSaints for $79.

    30. A bedside caddy because your nightstand is looking like a mess and you have no idea where the remote is. This convenient storage solution ensures that your nighttime essentials are tucked away into one neat little spot.


    This organizer is designed with six pockets, meaning you can store everything from an iPad and cell phone to glasses and hand cream.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    31. An odor-resistant, charcoal-infused sheet set that will continue to smell (and feel) fresh between loads of laundry β€” because let's be honest, who washes their sheets **every** week. Am I right?


    This set includes a flat sheet, fitted sheet, and two pillowcases (only one pillowcase if you're ordering the twin size).

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $32.50+ (originally $65).

    32. Adjustable clip holders capable of turning your favorite bra into one that won't be visible under your racerback top. Plus, this keeps straps from falling and gives your breast friends some extra lift.


    Promising review: "My bra straps spend more time off my shoulders than on β€” 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." β€”Amanda

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $5.97 (available in six colors).

    Get it from 1LittleYellowHouse on Etsy for $5+ (available in two sizes and four colors).

    34. Anti-bacterial cleaning tablets for retainers and dentures, because BOY do those things tend to get smelly. And a smelly retainer? Smelly breath.


    SO HOW DOES THIS WORK? Drop a tablet into warm water, add in your retainer, and leave it in for about 15 minutes. The result? A clean, fresh, odorless retainer.

    Psst, these tablets also work for dentures, night guards, and Invisalign.
