    1. A disco ball-inspired face mask to make your skincare routine feel like a dang party.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I really, really like this mask. When you apply the mask to your face it looks like shimmering pearls. What I really like about the product is that it is a peel-off mask. Depending on thickly you put the product on your face it only takes 20-30 minutes to dry. That sounds like a long time but it is worth the wait. When you peel this off your face and then do a final rinse your face feels and looks wonderful." —Grandma Fran

    Amazon

    Read BuzzFeed's full write-up on this egg cooker.

    Promising review: "Cooks just like pricey models, and has a knob on top so no burned hands. As to the one distinguishing characteristic of the Dash that makes it the best, in my opinion: The handle on the Dash is a knob on the top of the dome. All you have to do is lift it off, and the handle you are using to do that lifting is as far away from the outflow of steam (coming out from around the rim when you open the unit) as it can possibly be on one of these units. I found that the knob on the top was adequate to protect my hands from the steam, all by itself." —Rae

    33. A tongue scraper that's surprisingly beautiful, considering the gross job it has to do.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I am a thorough brusher and flosser, and always brush my tongue with the toothbrush for a minute at the end of each teeth brushing. I thought I kept a clean mouth, and my dentists would always concur; I’ve never had a cavity at 34 years old. I thought my mouth was basically perfect. And then i used this scraper for the first time, over my white bathroom sink. The yellow goo that started to collect after each pass completely caught me by surprise, and sort of made me sick to my stomach to even look at. How was I so ignorant to its presence, colonizing the vast free real estate amongst the sprawling meadows and rolling hills of my papillae? Today i reclaim my tongue back, and rid it from the impure forces that gripped it for so long, sending them back to depths of hell from whence they came, along with the bad breathey and whitish tongue film, weapons that had once been forged in their furnaces of mouth-malice, but now slide down the drain to their rightful graveyard of human waste that is the sewage system of Los Angeles. Be gone, demons. You are not welcome here." —Chill Pilgrim

    36. A set of measuring spoons and cups that are an Au-some choice in the kitchen.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Happy with this measuring set. The cups come on a detachable ring, and the spoons come on their own ring, which make it easy to take them off and on for using and then storing. The color is gorgeous and they appear well made, as they are heavier than other sets I’ve used. Thumbs up from me!" —Megan Harding
