    Promising review: "Giant scrunchies are the accessory I never knew I needed. I have big, curly Type 3 hair and I'm constantly putting it up and taking it down throughout the day. These adorable scrunchies make throwing my hair up in a messy bun so much more fun. The satin ones are especially great for being gentle on your hair.

    Promising review: "My kids were tired of getting attacked by mosquitoes when we went to visit the grandparents who live on the bay in the Florida Keys. I was worried it wouldn’t work well with the ocean breeze, but this hasn’t let us down. It goes through propane somewhat quickly so do yourself a favor and buy a refill kit. My kids and their mosquito bite-free legs so I highly recommend this!" —Suzy

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in four colors).

    4. A creamy deep conditioner for anyone with 3a–4c hair. Thanks to its super-fruit oil formula, it provides a lightweight hold that leaves curls and coils feeling soft and moisturized.

    This service searches through hundreds of new releases each month and picks out the top five new reads for you to choose from. It's like having your own personal librarian. You can also skip months if you're still working on your latest read.

    Promising review: "WOW! I absolutely love Book of The Month Club! Discounted best sellers with the option to skip some months? Count me in! Thanks to BOTM I have encountered some wonderful novels from new authors that I will be sure to add to my collection forever." ⁠—Chellie R.

    Get it from Book of The Month Club starting at $9.99 for your first book.

    6. Flax linen bedding in case you're looking for a luxurious and heavenly sleep. Despite being linen (which can be scratchy), these are pre-washed and super snuggly.

    purple sheets
    Benito Martin / Bed Threads

    I've VERY into linen sheets. They're super breathable and just feel very fancy. Something about them feels very "I live in a cute little cottage" although I don't think I could really explain why. They're just nice. I love Bed Threads because they come in such a wide array of colors so it's easy to mix and match with the bedding you already have. For example, I have a green Piglet duvet cover and the Bed Threads lilac sheets look AMAZING with it. This bedding set is a little splurge-y but you get two pillowcases, a duvet cover, and a fitted sheet.

    Get it from Bed Threads for $230+ (available in sizes Twin–California King and 23 colors).

    7. And a pair of linen boxer shorts you can wear as undies or sleep shorts. Linen sheets are amazing, yes, but why stop there? Every aspect of sleep should be linen, IMO.

    white boxer shorts with an elastic waist

    Linoto is a Black-owned business specializing in all things linen. All of their products are made in their workshop in Westchester County, New York.

    Promising review: "I got these boxers to sleep in and *sigh* they're just as wonderful as I hoped they'd be. I want everything to be made out if linen — it's breathable, durable, and only gets softer and more lovely over time — and these are an A+ addition to my growing collection of linen goods. They're very comfy and, as linen is wont to do, ease and stretch to fit *just* right. They wash perfectly and come out of the wash even better than how they went in. Ah, the glory of linen! Highly recommend these as high-quality sleep shorts." —Rachel Dunkel, BuzzFeed Staff 

    Get them from Linoto for $29.95 (available in sizes XS–XXL and 14 colors). 

    8. A container of oatmeal paw butter that'll soothe and relieve your dog's cracked, dry paws. Its eco-friendly formula is pH-balanced so it's safe for cats, even if licked or swallowed. *seriously considers licking it myself to see if it really tastes like oatmeal*

    A dog with one paw dry and cracked and the other smooth

    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.

    9. A super-cute cactus lounge float to make chilling by the pool even more fun. Look at this design! Look at it and tell me you're not searching for your swimsuit right now.

    The cactus float is green with yellow spikes and a pink flower at the top

    Promising review: "This thing is HUGE! We were looking for the BigMouth brand floaties but my daughter liked this design better than anything that brand had, and I was willing to risk it since it is one-third of the BigMouth price. And it did not disappoint. So cute and seems sturdy enough to last all summer and possibly more." –Target Reviewer

    Get it from Target for $10.

    10. A fancy baking tool set that will have you frosting, scraping, and brushing like a seasoned pastry chef.

    Rachel Dunkel / BuzzFeed

    The set comes with a bench scraper, two offset spatulas, and a pastry brush.

    Promising review: "I've never been anything less than floored by products from Food52's brand Five Two (lookin' at you, silicone lid set), and this baking set is no exception. I've been a hobbyist baker for a while, so this isn't my first rodeo when it comes to testing baking tools, but these are each the Cadillac of their own tool category, and all for a wildly good price, if you ask me.

    All of the tools feature silicone handles, so your hands won't slip and slide around even if they're covered in egg wash or butter (mmmmm butter). The offset spatulas are the perfect sizes for tasks large and small, and the ruler on the bench scraper is *chef's kiss* perfection. I reach for the brush, yes, for baking, but also any other kitchen tasks that require one. I've literally used this brush on chicken on the grill and it has survived.

    These tools are workhorses. Some of the sturdiest I've ever used. Food52 easily could have made these ugly as sin and still had the best products on the market. But they made them absolutely gorgeous to boot! Even after relatively heavy use, the blue silicone looks clean and the gold accents look bright and shiny as ever. And that's after many a run through the dishwasher, because OH YEAH, they're dishwasher-safe, too. Food52 you've done it again!" —Rachel Dunkel, BuzzFeed Staff

    Get it from Food52 for $49.

    11. A pair of classic gold-dipped hoops for that effortlessly put-together look. Sweatpants are suddenly a bold fashion choice with the right jewelry choice.

    Ten Wilde, Chelsea Stuart / BuzzFeed

    Ten Wilde is a Black woman-owned business based in LA.

    "I have a ~thing~ for simple gold jewelry — especially versatile pieces I don't have to fuss with. I throw these babies on whenever I want to look like I put in a little more effort than usual and they totally do the trick! My favorite part is how lightweight they are — they don't tug at my ears or feel heavy after hours of wear." —Chelsea Stuart, BuzzFeed Staff

    Get them from Ten Wilde for $30.

    12. Glossier Solution that gets rid of dead skin and clears complexion, leaving you glowing.


    This cruelty-free chemical exfoliator uses several acids (AHA, BHA, and PHA) to unclog pores, fight acne, and banish dark spots — all while moisturizing, conditioning, and exfoliating your skin. Plus, it's a lot more gentle on skin than a physical exfoliant. Check out our full review of the Glossier Solution.

    Promising review: "I was really skeptical about buying this, but I'm so happy I did! I started using this about a month ago: I first noticed that my skin texture was WAYYY smoother, and then I noticed that all of my active acne fully went away. This product has also been a lifesaver for diminishing dark spots! I use this product every night, follow it up with rosehip oil, and it's perfect." —Alexa

    Get it from Glossier for $24.

    13. An Always Pan, which is angling to become the only pan you ever reach for when cooking. It has an ultra-slippery nonstick surface, a vented top, a mesh basket for steaming, and a high-quality spoon that hooks onto the handle.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed, Our Place

    I have and love this pan! It just feels really nice to hold. The nesting spoon is absolutely genius, everything cooks evenly, and food just glides right off with minimal effort. If you hate scrubbing, consider getting this! See our full review of the Always Pan.

    Our Place was founded by Shiza Shahid, along with Amir Tehrani and Zach Rosner. She's a Pakistani social entrepreneur who also cofounded the nonprofit Malala Fund, which promotes education for young girls.

    Get it from Our Place for $145 (available in nine colors).

    14. Chicken and sweet potato treats that your dog will love so much, you'll never have to argue with them again. What would you do for a Klondike Bar? More like what would your dog do for these tasty snacks!

    french bulldog begs for rectangular treat

    My dog is possibly the pickiest creature alive, but even he loves these things. They're pretty big, so I usually break them into chunks and hide them in his activity mat or use them as incentives on walks. If your dog is also a treat snob, give these a try, because my dog is truly obsessed!

    Get them from Target for $9.99

    15. A bottle of squalane oil to make your skin so luxuriously soft and bouncy, you'll slam dunk all your other creams in the trash.

    hand holds bottle with pump

    I recommend this to everyoneeee, including my dermatologist. It's a multi-faceted product that can be used on your face, body, skin, and hair. It locks in moisture and leaves my face feeling bright and bouncy.

    Get it from Biossance for $32.

    16. An Atlas Coffee Club membership that sends you bags of delicious coffee from all over the world. Your taste buds are gonna be so well-traveled!

    Get it from Atlas Coffee Club starting at $9 a month.

    17. A pack of pot inserts for drainage hole-free planters that'll let the soil drain into a lower compartment of the pot. It's lighter than the traditional method of adding stones under the soil.

    The orange planter insert in a planter

    Promising review: "I have used these before. It makes for a lot less work and weight in large planters. They work great in allowing for drainage especially for large ceramic planters that do not have drainage holes. This way the water is in the bottom and can evaporate. However, in areas with heavy rain, I would still try and drill drainage holes if possible without cracking the planter."—Peggy

    Get it from Target for $6.89+ (available in seven sizes).

    18. A tiny houseplant air freshener that doubles as a handy mask or scrunchie holder! Just clip it to your vent, drop some of the included essential oil onto the cork, and enjoy!

    Interestingly, Chanel 5 IS a fragrance option. 👀 👀 👀

    Vroom Blooms is a small business based in North Carolina run by Lauren Rouse.

    Get it from ShopVroomBlooms on Etsy for $12 (available in 21 scents and 17 styles).

    19. A wood polish capable of turning back time to before you invited over a guest who forgot a coaster or got a dog with scratchy nails.

    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 $8.98.

    20. Pretty matte pacifiers that are not just for looks — they come with a built-in case for easy storage.,

    Doddle & Co is a woman-owned business that sells chic baby supplies.

    Promising review: "I wish I had thought of this idea! I’m always concerned with the cleanliness of my daughter’s pacifier. I love this unit in pop-able case! It is made of very durable material that is soothing to her gums. She really loves it!" —Sara DiCostanzo

    Get two from Target for $18.99 (available in two color sets).

    21. A stain remover that says, "hey it's OK, no need to cry over spilled wine."

    Promising review: "Lo and behold! I completely cleaned the window sills, the window shades, the baseboards, the walls and the carpeting! You cannot even tell it happened. No stains or color change to the carpet or the walls or the white painted surfaces. Before you try or use anything, buy this. It cannot be beat! I was afraid I might have to hire a professional to clean the carpet and that I might have to completely repaint walls, but no." —Sharon Hamilton

    Get it from Amazon for $9.66 (available in packs of 1-5).

    22. A terrarium candle with such a beautiful design, it'll be kind of hard to justify actually lighting it.

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $26 (available in two styles).

    23. Garbage disposal cleaner that's not only easy to use, but also very entertaining.


    Here's what you do: Run some hot water, pop one of the packets in your disposer, let it foam, then wait for the foam to fully disappear. Garbage disposer = clean and ickiness free.

    Promising review: "WHERE HAS THIS BEEN ALL MY LIFE???! Holy cow, I didn't realize how easy and quick it was to clean a garbage disposal until I bought this product! Typically, I'd just use vinegar and baking soda down the drain and call it good. I didn't know that there was an actual disposal cleaning product available until I stumbled across it through a BuzzFeed article. I had to try it. The instructions are very simple. It literally takes five minutes and some hot water and VOILA! you have a clean, no-longer-stinky garbage disposal. Any time I got a whiff of an odor, all I did was drop one of these packs in the disposal and the smell was GONE! Plus, the blue foam bubbling in the sink was amusing to watch. Worth every penny!!" —VadersGirl

    Get two packs of four from Amazon for $10.89.

    24. A Blueland laundry essentials kit complete with laundry tablets, booster powder, cute tins, and three wool dryer balls. The kit is free of chlorine bleach, parabens, pthalates, ammonia, and plastic packaging so you can consider this a more gentle and eco-friendly choice.

    two tins, two paper bags, and three blue wool balls

    This is a wonderful kit! It's really nice to be able to store the tablets and powder in cute tins that are easy to store. The balls are a lovely shade of blue and really do help cut down drying times. Also, most importantly, it makes my laundry smell sooo good. 

    Get it from Blueland for $42.

    25. A dynamic UFO tea light holder that has honestly shocked me to my core. This genius design is simply out of this world.

    Get it from KIMInMOjewelry on Etsy for $11.37+ (available in singles or pairs, and in gold or silver).

    27. 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

    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

    Get a pack of 14 from Amazon for $6.96.

    28. About Face's Psychedelic Dreams eye paint bundle for anyone who wants their eyes to really POP! This is the bold "I am HERE!" look everyone is looking for.

    About Face,

    I cannot emphasize enough how cool this matte eye paint is. It super duper pigmented and creates eye-popping color with just one layer. It really does feel like you're painting a little masterpiece on your eyelids when you use it. I haven't done anything too bold (just a thick line of color under some black eyeliner) but I imagine it would be pretty easy to make paint cool shapes. Once you paint it on and let it dry, it stays all day with zero smudging.

    Get a pack of three from About Face for $67 (available in two colorways).
