    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Every winter, my fingers and knuckles crack and bleed. I've tried everything on the market to heal my hands. I received this hand cream yesterday and when I put it on, I could tell right away that this was better than anything I'd tried. This stuff started working immediately. I filled all the cuts and cracks on my hands with this cream, and today they are almost healed. I believe that this is the best hand cream ever made on earth." —Steve

    3. A foaming hand soap that dispenses yuzu-scented foam in the shape of a flower. I'm sorry is this the bathroom of a MAGICAL FOREST SPRITE?

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I will admit I first saw this soap on TikTok and thought that it would be a nice soap to try since I do seem to be washing my hands all the time these days. I was very pleasantly surprised when I pushed down (twice) to get the foam to come out and not only is the flower cute but the foam is thick and luxurious, and makes your hands feel totally moisturized after you wash them. The smell is very pretty and not overpowering at all." —Audra Williams

    Promising review: "Don't get me wrong — my wedding ring was gorgeous before. It did sparkle and still made me smile every day. However...after using this Diamond Dazzle Stik...*oh my goodness*! After one use my ring is absolutely breathtaking! I knew my ring got dirty now and then, simply from sweating and being outside in the elements. However, I never realized just how much dinge and schmutz marred my diamond until I cleaned it. It literally took my breath away with its fiery, dazzling brilliance!" —liltreeclimber

    6. CND SolarOil Nail & Cuticle Care to repair peeling and painful nails, so you can find relief after doing the unspeakable and peeling off a gel manicure.

    left: peeling nails right: healthy nails
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "So, I have been using this product for about a month. I apply it every night before I fall asleep so the oil has a chance to really get absorbed. I have not used with any other products. Similar to another reviewer, my nails chip, like all the time. Especially, index and middle fingers on both hands. For years, I have tried strengthening polishes, salves, and lotions but nothing worked, until now. I am happy to say that this really stopped the chipping. Only one of my nails has any indication that chipping was an issue. Thank you so much!" —Angela Wills

    Get it from Amazon for $8.50.

It’s been a WEEK now and my strawberries, pineapple, and blueberries, (all in this one big container), are STILL FRESH! I’m going to start buying more fresh fruit now that I know it won’t be wasted and thrown away in a few days. Highly recommend this product if you’re like me and can’t eat a whole pineapple, strawberries, and other fruit fast!" —Sarah

    8. A pack of food spikes to nourish your plants for up to two months continuously. It's a lot easier than constantly squirting liquid fertilizer on them.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I swear by these plant food spikes!!! The package says they are for indoor plants, but I actually use them for all of my outdoor plants, especially my herbs. I first tried these after planting some basil and other herbs that seemed to be taking an eternity to grow. I figured I'd give them a try since they were so inexpensive and wow!!!!! Within just a few days, my plants had grown more than double what they had grown in the previous several weeks!! One of my friends (who also enjoys gardening) came over to my house and was in awe of how big and healthy all of my herbs were. When I told her about these spikes, she went straight from my house to purchase some and had the exact same growth results." —GatorDO17

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this and am amazed at how fuller my brows look! Application is also super easy and quick! I took three pictures. Top picture is before I applied it. Middle picture is after application. Third picture is after I've drawn a line under my brow to clean up the look and filled in some sparse areas." —P.A.

    Get two from Amazon for $7.99.

    11. Modern Table mac 'n' cheese that's such a convincing gluten-free and vegan pasta alternative, you'll wonder why you didn't make the switch sooner.

    bowl of mac and cheese
    Amazon

    I (Rebecca) am a huge fan of all of Modern Table's pastas! The texture is really spot on — really springy and chewy like perfectly cooked al dente pasta. Because it's made with rice, lentils, and peas, it doesn't have the weird flavor that most chickpea pastas have. And of course, the cheese flavor is delightful and satisfyingly cheesy. There are five flavors in the variety pack: cheddar, white cheddar Southwest, cream Alfredo, and parmesan and herb.

    Get six boxes from Amazon for $20.97.

    12. A suction tool that'll relieve the itchy agony of bug bites by sucking out insect venom, saliva, and other irritants under your skin. Finally, you can go outside after dark again!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Make sure you read all the directions before using so you don't accidentally give yourself a hickey! Several of my co-workers have tried this out and can confirm it really does work.

    Promising review: "I am a magnet for bites of all kinds and carry topical and medicines with me at all times — so I figured this would be a good product to see if it really works. I woke up with a bug bite on my arm so I used this little tool (three times per the instructions) — immediately after using, it stopped itching! And less than 24 hours later the bump/bite is gone! There is a very faint red mark from using the thing, but a small price to pay IMO. Bottom line: it’s awesome. I’m carrying it with me everywhere!" —Rebecca

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    13. A wood polish that can miraculously erase water stains and scratches. Everyone will be asking where you got your brand-new coffee table.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is absolutely AMAZING. My wife and I were getting tired of looking at our worn-out cabinets and wood paneling and were very close to paying a professional thousands of dollars to refinish it all, but then we came across this product. Our paneling and cabinets were looking rough. We have two dogs that jumped up and scratched places. We also had an area that was damaged by water spots where our dog bowls were. Several other areas were just worn from heavy traffic. This stuff was like a magical eraser for water spots, scratches, scuffs, and any other blemish. We simply wiped the product on with a paper towel and let it sit for 20 minutes before wiping it off with a clean towel. Everything looks brand-new. I'm buying a couple more so we can finish our cabinets and wood paneling. We're so glad we found this product." —Kris

    Get it from Amazon for $8.48.

    14. A '90s-approved fanny pack hat for people with little pocket space but lots of love for neon attire.

    Place these on the floor of your shower, away from direct water. They'll slowly dissolve for 5–10 minutes. The tablets have a blend of eucalyptus and two different types of peppermint essential oils to help you feel better.

    Promising review: "I used one of the shower steamers and almost automatically felt relieved. It made a ton of drainage come out of my nose with no effort and helped relieve my sinus pressure. Definitely recommend." —Sarah Carlile

    Get 10 steamers from The Herbal Zen on Amazon Handmade for $19.99.

    16. Hally — an at-home hair kit with a fun '90s vibe that offers everything you need to unwind and try a new hair style. The ultra-gentle formula (ammonia-free, baby) lets you make a subtle 'do change without worrying about frying your poor hair.

    Rebecca O'Connell / BuzzFeed, Hally

    It comes with under-eye gels and stress putty so you can take a screen break while you let the dye do its thing. I tried the rose gold option and loved it! It comes with really cute orange and purple hair clips, and I actually used the putty instead of just staring at my phone for 30 minutes. The dye comes as a foam so it's easy to distribute over your hair. Tip: Use the entire bottle to make sure your hair is completely saturated. You can click through to see how the colors would look in your hair. Since my hair was dirty blonde, the result is a slightly lighter blonde with a pink tint. It's nice and subtle!

    Get it from Hally for $25 (available in ash blonde, miky brown, and pinky blonde).

    17. A wildly popular hair serum packed with vitamin E, aloe vera, and argan oil to ensure your mane stays silky soft and frizz-free, no matter how humid it gets (Florida bbs, this one is for you).

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I found this product through a BuzzFeed article for those with frizzy hair and THIS PRODUCT DID NOT DISAPPOINT, PEOPLE! I put this serum through the ringer; I got this to stand up to Bay Area fog AND the nasty, humid heat wave we got a couple weeks ago. No frizz, no extra curls. Nothing! On top of that, it made my hair super glossy. I'm very impressed. Heads-up though, a little goes a long way. One pump is enough to cover my hair and I have medium-length hair. Also, it can make your hair look oily if you use too much. I do have oily hair so working on my ends first then working to my roots works for me." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    18. Medicated, waterproof bandages that will make your wart erupt from the depths of your skin like a gross butterfly.

    four images of a reviewer's wart breaking through the skin and erupting outward
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This worked for me. Here's what happened. First bandage: Everything turned white. Second bandage: The top layer of the wart started disappearing and I could see the blood vessels that were inside it clearly. Third bandage: It started burning while wearing it. One day was REALLY painful, but now I think I just put the bandage on too tight. There was definitely burning though. Uncomfortable, not unbearable. Fourth bandage: The skin around the wart started to crack. Fifth bandage: The skin continued to crack and I could see the wart separating. Sixth bandage: Skin separating deeper. Wart was really soft but it wouldn't budge. Seventh bandage: The wart stuck to the medicine, so when I pulled off the bandage, the wart went with it. I'm left with some raw skin that's a bit sensitive but it feels fine. It looks like the entire wart came off, roots and all. Side note: It smells horribly. Make sure you put the bandage on tight enough to try and conceal the smell, but not so tight it hurts. Overall, not a horrible process. Make sure you follow the instructions and keep it on for 48 hours at a time. Two of mine were only on for 24 hours and I think that prolonged the process." —Chelsea Gipson

    19. A blessedly effective carpet cleaner capable of turning your brown carpet into whatever color it was when you bought it.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is a wonderful product. I have an older dog who can't always wait until I get home from work so accidents occasionally happen. I have a Hoover Rug Scrubber and this product is very easy to use with my machine. Carpet Miracle works amazingly well on stains and odors, even those that have set for a while. I did the carpet in the 'room of shame' twice just to be sure, although for normal soil and odors once should be more than enough. It leaves behind a wonderful clean, fresh scent, and the carpet feels and looks wonderful. I plan on continuing to use this product to keep my carpets clean and my home smelling fresh." —Vicky Faurot

    Get it from Amazon for $16.97.

    20. A hair finishing stick to smoosh down all those annoying flyaways that escaped your bun.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have super fine hair with lots of breakage. No matter how I put my hair up I have bad flyaways. This stuff is great! So easy and it stays better and looks smoother than stiff hair spray." —Jill Stilfield

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    21. Or an edge control gel that'll help lay edges and baby hairs for a sleek look without the unwanted flaking and residue.

    amazon.com

    BUT we want to add that no one should feel pressure to lay their edges, unless they way want to! Check out "Just A Friendly PSA That You Don't HAVE To Lay Your Edges Down If You Don't Wanna."

    Promising review: "Hands-down! The best edge control I have ever used and I have used a lot of them. Stayed all day! No flakes and non greasy! And this one is not even the strongest in the line. Love this product!" —Seabea2013

    Get it from Amazon for $7.50+ (available in two sizes).

    22. A pack of Bottle Bright tablets possibly made out of fairy dust, because they'll totally wipe away years of grime in mere minutes.

    left: brown bottle right: clean bottle
    amazon.com

    Just fill your dirty mug with water, add a tablet, let fizz for half an hour, and then rinse!

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug — I tried everything. Bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. It grossed me out so much that I bought ANOTHER HydroFlask to replace it. Now eventually they both got black inside, so I tried these little magic tablets. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY, without even scrubbing. They look brand new. What a magical product. No weird smell or taste afterward, either. I liked it so much I used it on another HydroFlask I use primarily to hold my Bloody Mary mix in the fridge. I couldn't put anything else in it because it would always taste like spicy tomato juice. Bottle Bright to the rescue! No residual smell or taste anymore. AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING." —Amazon Customer

    While you're in that extra deep bath, you might as well go all out and add some bubbles.

    Promising review: "I love this stuff soooo much. I have had some rash issues on my fingers ever since I got a full body rash from Downy Unstopables (the worst product ever!!) and had to take prednisone to get rid of it. Ever since I started regularly soaking in the tub with this, I have had hardly any flareups. Something about the ingredients in this particular combination makes my skin sing. Plus, it smells amazing and provides top-notch bubbles. Worth every penny."—Sarah

    25. Cruelty-free lengthening mascara that's lightweight, won't transfer, doesn't smudge, and lasts all day — oh and makes your eyelashes look like tall, beautiful skyscrapers.

    Promising review: "Love this mascara! I’ve used the 'best of the best' designer, super hyped, ultra popular mascara available and NOTHING compares to this stuff! I don’t even bother using a lash curler anymore! I buy two at a time so I always have a spare (yes, it’s that good!!). I highly recommend this particular mascara...it goes on effortlessly, it lasts pretty much all day, and the price — I feel like I’m almost stealing it! I’d give it 10 stars if I could!!!" —chulaboola

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've tried everything on my Australian shepherd's paws. He licks his paws when they get dry which makes them drier. The vet told me to use coconut oil, he just licked that off. I don't think he liked the taste of the Paw Butter so he left it on and by the next morning, I saw a significant improvement." —C. Castro

    Get it from Amazon for $7.59.

    27. A giant 1-pound bag of marshmallows for anyone who picks the boring cereal out of Lucky Charms. I don't blame you if you end up taking romantic selfies with the bag.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This was purchased strictly for novelty at first, but I was pleasantly surprised that it made my skin feel softer when I took it off. I forced my husband to do it first, and it looks like it helped clean out his pores on his nose, so that’s another win for this mask! I’ve already recommended it to friends!" —Miranda

    29. An electric bottle opener ready to show you you've been living in the past this whole time. While you've been struggling with a corkscrew and bits of cork in your wine, you could have been pressing a button and enjoying popped bottles in SECONDS.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I ordered this for my smokin' hot GF back in 2012. Fast forward three years later and this $20 wine opener is still with me and my smokin' hot GF is now my smokin' hot wife. I never thought either one would be with me for this long...but life is good. We like to have a good time...I mean...we effin' get down on some wine. So this bad boy probably pops open a new bottle every two days. It has stayed plugged in to our wall for over three years now (I halfway expected the battery would have burned out by now, but nope!). We haven't even had to replace the screw yet — still works like new — I'm shocked and impressed this $20 opener has faithfully lasted this long." —DaveyG

    30. TikTok-famous leggings that pretty much everyone adores (hello, over 15,000 positive reviews) thanks to their comfortable fit, high waist, and ruched features. Oh, and everyone's butts looking amazing in them!

    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

    31. Moth traps to stop those tiny, dusty aviators in their tracks.

    two reviewers pose and smile behind four triangle shaped traps covered in moths. it kind of looks like a playing card structure
    amazon.com

    This is for pantry moths! If you need to protect your clothes, try this version.

    Promising review: "This review is being posted to showcase our tasteful presentation of what started as a gathering of moths, and is now a full-blown infestation. I call it, 'The Moth Exhibit at Thayer Plaza.'

    They are literally coming out of the woodworks: from crevices within the counters, from the pantry, from the bathroom, and who knows from where else. We have spent the days watching our moth traps fill up with these little creatures that seem to bite their way through everything, including plastic and cardboard.

    With these moth traps we have learned that we can hold the trap to the flying patter, and the moths eventually fly inside and get stuck for an eternity. It does not seem to bother them that there are dozens of their dead friends and family members stuck inside the traps already. It seems that they are attracted to the scent of the glue inside the traps.

    I'm on my fifth order of these. After a couple of dozen moths get stuck it's best to use a fresh trap because they have a lower chance of getting stuck to the trap if they can step on their dead friends and eject themselves out the other end. A better design would be to have a closed end so that they have no way of ejecting themselves or flying through. I give 5 stars anyway for keeping us entertained and finding something positive from this mess." —Raymond

    33. A bleach-free, no-scrub weekly shower spray to keep your shower in tip-top shape. Spray it on then rinse clean the next day — no scrubbing needed! That means goodbye soap scum and shower grime buildup with just an overnight soak.

    Before: a dirty shower floor; after: the clean shower floor
    Amazon

    Promising review: "We cannot BEGIN to tell you what a lifesaver this is! We have two old fiberglass tubs with vinyl shower enclosures that no matter what amount of scrubbing we have done with everything from bleach to cleanser to vinegar and baking soda would NOT come clean. After I took my shower last night, I sprayed down the tub and walls. Within minutes, all the built-up water deposits and dirt and grime began to melt away in front of my eyes. I left it on overnight, and when I got up this morning, it did not look like the same tub and shower. This product is a godsend, especially for old folks like us who have difficulty getting down on our hands and knees and scrubbing anything. More importantly, it performs as advertised. We plan on using it as part of our weekly cleanup routine, in addition to purchasing the Wet and Forget Mold and Mildew Remover for use on the vinyl siding of our house. This is truly an overnight sensation!" —Amazon Customer

    Promising review: "Used a little more than one roll for a quick makeover for an ugly fireplace in a rental apartment. It was easy to cover the tiles with the film, and I could stretch the film out about 1 mm if I had cut the strip too short. It makes a huge difference for minimal effort/price. I don't think anyone would be squinting down at the floor to notice the slightly pixelated pattern." —zhen
