    24 Products With Before-And-After Photos Even We Were Impressed To See

    Proceed with caution if you're squeamish (a few of these are gnarly), and throw caution to the wind if you're looking for that *one* product that'll solve your worst problem.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Some may have been sent as samples, but all opinions and reviews are our own. 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 downright magical foot peel that'll shed all the dead skin that's been keeping you out of flip flops for years.

    2. A two-pack of stainless-steel tongue cleaners you'll (hopefully) use as often as your other dental products — because daily oral hygiene can include more than just brushing, flossing, and rinsing.

    3. A cleanser and polishing powder to restore your tarnished cookware, and once again make your most cherished pots and pans presentable enough to post your cooking photos on Instagram.

    4. A cruelty-free vitamin C serum that'll brighten and soften your skin while drastically reducing hyperpigmentation. The 44,000+ people who gave this serum a 5-star review love it so much there should be a fan club for it.

    5. This extreme lash mascara to make you look super attentive (and glamorous) during those back-to-back Zoom meetings — even if you're actually bored out of your mind.

    6. A box of fine line-reducing face masks that'll tighten your pores and lift your skin. Be prepared to be a little freaked out at first when you see yourself in the mirror and realize you look like an extra from The Walking Dead with this mask on. But once you take it off, it'll all be worth it.

    7. A Diamond Dazzle Stik with a twist-to-dispense design that makes cleaning your jewelry so easy you'll do it just for fun.

    8. A bottle of sulfate-free biotin shampoo infused with tea tree, jojoba, and argan oils to help treat hair loss. This is a potential option for folks whose hair is thinning a bit sooner than expected, or people simply looking to go a few extra rounds with Father Time.

    9. Or an anti-dandruff shampoo to save you from having to shell out a co-pay at a dermatologist's office. Whether you have a relatively mild case of dandruff or your scalp and shoulders resemble the Swiss Alps during ski season, this thing will become a staple of your shower routine.

    10. A pumice cleaning stone for stains on your toilet that are too stubborn for a flimsy brush.

    11. A tub of rejuvenating eye cream to firm up those bags under your eyes that you got from reading BuzzFeed shopping posts all night when you should have been getting your beauty sleep. That wasn't a wise choice, but who are we to judge?

    12. A teeth-whitening pen – it's easier to use than whitening strips, and far cheaper than a trip to the dentist (although you should definitely go if it's been a while).

    13. Some Miracle-Gro plant food spikes for those of us who are finally responsible enough to be plant parents. You've made sure your little green children are hydrated and bathed in sunshine, now it's time to ensure they're also well-fed!

    14. A pack of wart remover bandages that have saved reviewers a ton of money at the doctor's office as well as a decent amount of inconvenience — and it works super quick!

    15. And these silver polish wipes to revive even your most beat up bracelets and hoop earrings.

    16. A wood conditioner that'll bring your old, worn out dining room table back to life. It'll also create a protective layer that helps prevent the wood from drying out or fading.

    17. A pet earwax cleaner to clean out all the gunk your fur baby has stored their little ears. Hopefully this means they'll hear you better when you tell them to pipe down during your Zoom meeting.

    18. A grooming glove – it can be used wet or dry to remove excess hair from your furriest friend *and* give them endless belly rubs at the same time.

    19. A tube of Elizavecca's CER-100 Collagen Coating Protein treatment for folks with hair that's become damaged due to excessive straightening and dyeing.

    20. A pack of dishwasher-cleaning tablets that'll penetrate, dissolve, and remove the residue built up in the machine that's more likely to stink over time than almost any other appliance you own. Just pop these in once a month and you'll be good to go.

    21. A bottle of commercial strength hard water stain remover to bring your bathroom mirror back to life. You'd be amazed at how much better a bathroom looks with a spotless mirror.

    22. A stone-effect spray paint that'll give your bathroom countertop a more vibrant and vintage vibe in case you're tired of the ultra modern faux marble it has now. This quick little 30-minute project will save you from having to spend a ton of money on a whole new top altogether.

    23. A grout pen to...well...hide dirty grout. Which is a quick and easy project for lazy people who'd rather not spend an entire afternoon actually *removing* dirty grout.

    24. Or this automatic scrubbing brush if you're a little more ambitious and *actually* want to get rid of that dirty grout. It comes with a detachable oscillating grout brush that'll have your bathroom tiles looking as flawless as they did the day you moved in.
