41 Products That Deserve A Standing Ovation

Whew, my hands are tired from applauding all these great products.

We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. 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 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.

2. SERIOUSLY tasty fruit bars for people who grew up loving fruit leather, but truly couldn't stomach a bite more of apricot-flavored anything. These sweet treats taste like tropical delights — strawberry banana and pineapple passionfruit.

long rectangular fruit snacks

You know that feeling when you eat something and you're like "hmm, I could go for a sweet lil' something to finish this meal"? These are PERFECT for that! They're really small, which makes them a nice snack. The texture is that perfect balance of soft and chewy, plus a little gooey, so I def recommend if you're someone who enjoys firmer fruit snacks and fruit leather. Both the banana and pineapple options are pretty much exploding with fruit flavor, making them great for both kids and adults. 

Promising review: "These are small, sort of like the size of a flattened, rectangular pencil. It's yummy and fruity. This is only 60 calories and it's just for a little energy pick-me-up." —carol

3. A set of Target Threshold sheets so affordable and comfortable, I lay awake at night worrying about all the people who don't own a set.

hands pull down fitted sheet with deep pockets

Here is why you need these sheets: 1. They have a 400 thread count 2. They're cheap 3. They come in cute patterns 4. The fitted sheet has tags telling you which way is up/down or a side.

Get them from Target for $35+ (available in sizes Twin–King and three colors or 25 patterns).

4. A scrunchie keychain to add a little extra function to the thing that lives on your wrist 24/7. *imagines wearing my car keys in my hair*

scrunchies with metal loops

Get it from VallisHandmade on Etsy for $8.42 (available in seven colors).

5. A pet hair remover that'll pull all the fur off your belongings. It turns out that white fur coat you own is actually a black denim jacket???,

Promising review: "Holy cow this is magic. I have a 230-pound Mastiff. I have purchased any and everything claiming to get dog hair off car carpet. I have used at least three different vacuums and attachments. Lately I have been using a microfiber towel because it had some grip. Then this piece of magic arrived. It gets every single hair no matter how embedded. There were hairs I had a hard time removing with my fingers. The Fur-Zoff pulled them right out. This has cut my hair removal time in half! Thank you for this savior of a tool." —David R.

Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

6. An itty-bitty toenail brace set capable of fixing your painful ingrown toenail problem.

Promising review: "I couldn’t believe that this kit could solve my ingrown toenail issue; it’s been a lingering issue for 14 years, on and off, more so the last few years. I read the reviews and thought its worth a try for the money. It’s about the same price as a co-pay to the doctor anyway. I couldn’t be happier! This is an amazing kit. I admit it took a few tries to get them to stick, two of the braces have broken, now that it’s fairly flat, almost a normal curve to it, it seems to stay affixed much more reliably. To the naysayer, I tell you that I didn’t believe it either, my toenail on my right foot looked like an inverted taco shell. I could tell after a week it was improving and finally it looks good again. The pain of nail removal, time off work, wearing a goofy shoe for two or three weeks and the frustration of it growing back in the same way again make this curve correct kit worth every penny. If you’re in pain and reading this review then you are right where I was a month ago. Order it, get over the 50 bucks and get your ability to walk and run pain-free back. I paid full price for this kit and I am convinced it’s the best 50 bucks I’ve spent in years. Thanks Curve Correct!" —Frank Menz

Get it from Amazon for $44.99.

7. A pack of pantry moth traps to finally rid your home of those tiny, annoying bug aviators.

many moths on glue trap

You can get clothing moth traps here.

Promising review: "When I say these work fast, I mean it. I got these in hopes of killing my pantry moth problem once and for all. As soon as I set these traps out a SWARM of moths came out from who knows where. I felt like I was in The Birds — it was that intense. After my momentary panic I was shocked to find that the moths went straight to the traps and got themselves stuck, and within a few hours the kitchen was eerily free of moths. Don’t let the price scare you, this stuff works and works well. The only complaint I have is that my cat got herself stuck on one in a desperate attempt to kill some moths herself. Though that is more of a complaint with the stupidity of my cat and not the product. With a little complaining and vegetable oil she came free with only a little fur missing." —Taylor

Get a pack of six from Amazon for $16.97.

8. A jewelry cleaning pen you can count on to add new shine to your gems, no costly trip to the jeweler needed.

Promising review: "I have a 2.5-carat wedding ring and have a hard time really finding anything that gets that 'first day' sparkle back. With the Dazzle Stik, it shines again. Thank you so much!" —C.Skinner

Get it from Amazon for $8.66.

9. A pair of classy rainboots so you can still wear cute shoes even when it's pouring.

rubber chelsea boots

Click through to see the camo, yellow, and GLITTER options!

Promising review: "I've been wanting some Chelsea rain boots for a long time now, and these are PERFECT for the price. $25 for nice rainboots is for sure a steal, and the rubber on these is super pliable and comfortable for day-long wear. I will say the sizing isn't perfect; I fall between an 8-9 depending on the brand, but generally find my feet to be closer to a 9. Since there aren't half sizes, I went with the 9 here, and it is definitely a little too large. If you're a borderline size like me, you may want to go on the smaller side instead." —Amazon Customer

Get them from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes 4.5–12 and 10 colors).

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

before: brown bottle during: foaming bottle after: clean bottle

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

Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $8.

11. A dog shampoo and conditioner to give your pet the silky fur that'll be the envy of all the pups at the dog park.

Promising review: "This is a great shampoo and conditioner. I have a Shi-chon puppy who needs to be washed every three to four weeks. I thought I would need to apply a leave-in conditioner since he is half Shih-Tzu, but I do not. The product gets him super clean without drying out his fur. It makes his fur soft and fluffy! The directions says to rinse and repeat, but I found two applications dries out his skin and makes his fur look dull. So I only do one application. I will definitely buy again and again. The pump nozzle is great to use one handed. The shampoo leaves him smelling good for at least a week or more." —C M

Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

12. An ink and stain remover ready to pick a fight with even the toughest of marks. Permanent marker? We'll see about that.

left: blanket with evan written in sharpie right: no evan

Promising review: "Amodex took ink out of my expensive scrubs. A pen leaked in my pocket and made a thick glob of ink stain on the scrub jacket and a little on the pants. After using the Amodex and washing in cold water, there is no evidence of a stain and the fabric looks exactly how it looked before the stain. There was no damage or discoloration of the fabric. Thank you, Amodex. This product just saved me the $75 that it would have cost to replace the scrubs." —Michelle hammer

Get it from Amazon for $11.49.

13. A back massaging stick so you can hit all those hard-to-reach places and kiss stiffness goodbye.

reviewer uses s-shaped device with knobs

Promising review: "This tool has changed my life!!! There is not a pressure point on my body that is not tender. I no longer have to wait for somebody to massage me to get relief!! I literally use it every day. The pain that I had before was so debilitating. There were days when I couldn't function because I was in so much pain from muscle tightness. I am having tremendous relief now. Words cannot express how grateful I am to the person who designed and came up with this concept. This tool has enabled me to take the first steps in taking back my life! I leave it sitting next to my bed and the first thing I do when I wake up is hit the pressure points on my shoulders and neck before I even get out of bed!! No more waking up stiff and staying stiff!!!!!!!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart to the inventor of this life-changing tool!!!" —alisa g.

Get it from Amazon for $29.95 (available in three colors).

14. 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: nails with no more peeling

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.

15. A toilet sticker reminding guests to put down the seat, keeping other guests from falling in during late night bathroom breaks.

Get it from Amazon for $1.95.

16. A tea organizer for tea fanatics who have more than a couple of half empty tea boxes taking up precious real estate in their cabinets.

plastic tea organizer with six pockets for loose packets

Promising review: "I am really enjoying this tea organizer. I keep many different varieties of tea and this has been the easiest way to keep them sorted. One compartment will hold most, if not all, of one small box of tea. It feels so happy to be able to easily access and choose what tea I am in the mood for that day. Thank you." —skymom

Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

17. A huge pack of Baby Yoda stickers so you can make everything you own a little cuter.

stickers or both yoda and grogu

18. A dishwasher magnet so you can know at a glance whether the dishes are clean or dirty. Arguments = avoided. Accidentally eating off a dirty plate = never again.

hexagonal magnet that says clean and dirty on either side

Just rotate it to switch the "status."

Promising review: "I don't know why it took me so long to buy this thing, but I'm glad that I finally did. Yes, to some it might be silly, but there are times when I forget or can't tell whether my dishes and glassware are clean. This $3 magnetic sign saves me from washing the 'dirty' dishes another time." —Colmac

Get it from Amazon for $4.75.

19. A teeny-tiny trashcan that fits in your car's cup holder so you have no excuse for all the gum wrappers and tissues littering the passenger seat.

small trash can that fits in cup holder

Promising review: "It’s ridiculous how much I love these! The push part is on a spring so it stays closed when you aren’t pushing it, and of course it perfectly fits in the cup holder of our vehicles. Pro tip: a quart sized Ziploc is the perfect size to add as a liner and fold over the top to keep the inside clean!" —Chaos Coordinator

Get it from Amazon for $7.88.

20. A roll of peel-and-stick fake marble to jazz up all your dull surfaces.,

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

Get a roll from Amazon for $7.98+ (available in nine configurations).

21. A suction tool to help 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!

Rebecca O'Connell / BuzzFeed

Make sure you read all the directions before using so you don't accidentally give yourself a hickey! I've used this and it totally works. It won't completely get rid of 100% of your bug bites, but it makes a noticeable difference. I haven't scratched once since this amazing device came into my life.

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 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.

22. 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.

23. A pair of massage slippers that are meant to be worn for 15 minutes at a time to help with various foot pain problems.

slides with bumpy soles

Promising review: "I had done a lot of research on these before I purchased them. When I received them I put them on for 15 minutes and wore them around the house while I did my household chores. I did wear socks with them. The last five minutes were a bit painful but I kept them on. The first night I slept better than I have slept in a really long time. I woke up with no knee pain or sciatica and back pain. I could actually get up from a sitting position without struggling. I am 71 years old and my knees and back have been giving me a fit for a really long time. My husband was so impressed that he asked me to order him a pair. I truly believe in the health benefits that these offer and all without drugs and/or surgery. I will continue to wear them the recommended 15 minutes per day. I can't say enough positive things about these slippers, and have already recommended them to my family and friends." —ELIZABETH J.

Get them from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes 4F–12M and four styles).

24. Versed's overnight facial peel to help you wake up with refreshed, glowing skin. Its pH-balanced, nondrying formula has a blend of lactic and glycolic acid to help wake up dull-looking skin.

model puts white peel on forehead

Promising review: "I was a bit hesitant about purchasing because I was worried that it's a bit too strong for my sensitive skin, but I decided to try out the travel size. I absolutely love it! It left my skin super soft after just one use and over the past month or so, I have noticed an improvement in the overall texture of my skin. I love it so much that I went back for the full size!" —IJAIN3403

Get it from Versed for $19.99.

25. A fermentation kit that turns mason jars into tiny vessels you can fill with all your hopes and dreams (pickles and kimchi).

Amazon, Rebecca O'Connell / BuzzFeed

The kit comes with four multipurpose lids, fermenting caps, extractor pump, and recipe book, but you need to get your own mason jars. The special caps let carbon dioxide escape without allowing oxygen to enter so your jars won't like, explode. I recently used one to make a jar of pickles and somehow they were not only edible, but actually pretty good!

Get it from Amazon for $33.99.

26. A pineapple house for the fry cook in your life.

Penny / Chewy, jace / Chewy

Promising review: "My betta likes it. He prefers to hide in a tree but when he's bored he goes in the pineapple and leaves out the window, which is cute. If your fish is bigger or wider than a betta go for the larger pineapple house. Overall, whether your fish likes to hide or not, it is bright and cheerful decor for you to look at." —jace

Get it from Chewy for $6.50.

27. A bottle of truffle seasoning to make meals taste extra fancy without having to invest in a truffle-sniffing pig.

bottle of truffle zest next to burger

Promising review: "Yes, I'm a truffle lover to begin with. And, of course, only a truffle is a truffle. But I gotta tell ya this delectable heaven-sent powder is one heck of an addictive and more versatile option. Utterly AMAZING on popcorn, in eggs, added to soups and sauces to layer flavors, veggies, PASTA...the list is endless (I think the only thing I haven't tried was sprinkling it on ice cream...although LOL). It is a bit salty, so I advise testing the waters first. But I just ordered my ninth and tenth bottle of the Truffle Zest." —Greengirl

Get it from Amazon for $13.12.

28. A Tile finder here to help you find anything that's easily lost. Connect it to your keys, remote, backpack, cat, and suddenly you'll be able to locate them on your phone just like that.

The classic Tile has a 200-foot Bluetooth range and comes with an app so you can find it on your phone. You can also make it play a song for close range finds.

Promising review: "I love them! Avoid that last-minute panic looking for car keys, wallets, tablets, etc.. Just listen for the music!" —Marcy

Get it from Tile for $24.99.

29. A mold you can just throw in your Instant Pot for easy eggs!

egg poured into a mold with seven semi circles

It doesn't have to go in an Instant Pot to work, but it does fit in one. You can also use it to make chocolate, mini cheesecakes, cake pops, brownie bites, muffins, popsicles, ice cubes, and more! If you don't have an Instant Pot, you can still use these in boiling water, the microwave, the freezer, or other pressure cookers. Plus, it's dishwasher-safe!

Promising review: "These egg bite molds are perfect for my 8-quart Ninja Foodi! I found a recipe on Pinterest and had a quick easy breakfast for the week! The egg bites popped right out with nonstick spray and they were easy to clean up in the dishwasher. Highly recommend if you are a Foodi or Instant Pot user!!" —Abby Inman

Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful collection on Amazon for $9.99.

30. A ball of slime putty that's really fun to play with — but don't forget to use it to clean up anything with lots of nooks and crannies.

ball of slide is applied to vent

Promising review: "I was skeptical at first. I was afraid my keyboard would be all gummed up with yellow slime! The opposite, it cleaned it as good as new. Got all those dog hairs between the keys! No smell lingering on the keyboard or my hands. No sign I even used it except a clean keyboard. Kind of fun to play with. LOL." —Billy

Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

31. A doggy foot cleaner to quickly get your pup's paws squeaky clean so they can get back to lounging on your furniture instead of the expensive pet bed you got them.

dog paw goes into tube with bristles

Promising review: "Best. Thing. Ever. This product works like a charm. It gets the sand from between their pads, and is gentle enough that even my most stubborn pup tolerates it! I have a terrier/schnauzer that likes to dig, a mini golden doodle that is prissy about her paws and a standard labradoodle puppy that is still very fuzzy. We have a farm where it is extremely sandy and we stay in a travel trailer. The amount of sand they were tracking in to the camper was ridiculous. It takes me three minutes to clean and dry off all of their paws. Seriously the best purchase I have made!" —Rachel

Get it on Amazon for $10.79+ (available in three sizes and six colors).

32. First Aid Beauty's Ultra Repair Cream — a hefty moisturizer providing instant (and long-lasting) hydration that your dry skin sorely needs.


This moisturizer is vegan, cruelty-free, and gluten-free.

Promising review: "I suffer from eczema on my hands and washing my hands throughout the day causes severe damage (cracked skin, redness, and sensitivity). Thankfully my sister introduced me to this about a year ago and it has changed my life! No more dry, flaky, irritated skin. Even during those cold and dry winter days, my hands remain smooth and hydrated."zelmar

Get it from Sephora for $14+ (available in three sizes).

33. A pair of reliable Doc Martens that will keep your feet comfortable and safe from the elements. Believe me when I say these babies will last a LONG TIME.

lace up ankle boots
Dr. Martens

I am not exactly easy on my shoes. As a New Yorker, I walk everywhere and usually for long distances. I also shuffle and put a lot of pressure on the sides of my feet (supination of the foot). I usually go through a pair of shoes in a single season but I've had my Docs for over three years and they're still looking almost new. They're also comfy, fairly warm, and very snazzy.

Get them from Dr. Martens for $150 (available in sizes 5W–16M and 16 colors).

34. A trio of Scotch-Brite stainless steel scrubbers for your more intense cleaning needs. Use 'em on uncoated cookware, broilers, and more.

Promising review: "I’m so mad that I never knew these existed until this week. I’ve been struggling to clean my All Clad cookware and tired all sorts of methods but still no shine! These arrived yesterday and I immediately went in. I got all my pans and used these along with Bar Keepers Friend. OMG, unbelievable! Not a single stain left. Just the beautiful shiny All Clad as I remember! Buy these now. I know I’ll be reordering." —Joy

Get them from Amazon for $2.48.

35. Boy Brow — a foolproof way to get instantly well-groomed eyebrows with just a few swipes.

model uses the brow brush

Seriously, just brush your brows up and then out; it's that easy. I used to use Boy Brow all the time and loved how natural my eyebrows would look, even if I used a color that was much darker than my natural hair color. It's way easier to use than a traditional eyebrow pencil. Read another, more in-depth review of this eyebrow magic (#5).

Get it from Glossier for $16 (available in four shades and clear).

36. An Aerogarden countertop garden for a foolproof way to grow fresh herbs at home. Pizza night is gonna be sooo much better with basil you grew all by yourself.

Promising review: "I planted everything photographed on 1/3/19 and I took this photo this morning (on 2/5/19). It takes care of itself and they grow a little bit more each day. It's the most exciting part of my morning routine. While my coffee brews, I admire my plants!" —kristy campbell

Get it from Amazon for $99.99+ (available in three colors).

37. 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.

Our Place, Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

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!

This is the most durable Magic Eraser, with three times the power of bleach.

Promising review: "The tubs are plastic/fiberglass. My daughter played with some toy that marked the tub — a lot of BLACK, DEEP marks! It looked awful. I tried to scrub it with soap, bleach, alcohol, rags/towels, Ajax, and nothing worked... Used these and the marks were gone in seconds." —Michael D
