1. A two-piece makeup storage set to take back control of your messy sink area.

amazon.com

What is it like to have actual space around the bathroom sink? Only organized people would know.

Promising review: "It's bigger than it looks! It held all of my makeup. I like how the top detaches. It keeps my bathroom neat, and it helps to keep you from having to search through a makeup bag just to find what you want! Also, the drawers come completely out, so I set them out as I'm doing my makeup." —Alison Baker

Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in three colors).

2. 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*

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.

3. A Bevel safety razor providing a super-close, bump-free shave on anything from your face to your body to your head. Bonus: It's specially designed to be extra helpful for thick, curly hair.

amazon.com

Bevel is a Black-founded business!

Promising review: "As an African American man, I've always been more susceptible to razor bumps and ingrown hairs due to curlier hair. Gillette was my go-to for shaving, because it did better with sensitive skin and was good for shaving quickly. However, of course Gillette is more of a one-size-fits-all razor brand and doesn't account for some of the nuances some men have to deal with when shaving. I looked for a razor blade that would assist in minimizing razor bumps and ingrown hairs, and that's where Bevel comes in. Firstly, I'm very happy to support a Black-owned brand that addresses some of the unique grooming issues of Black men, so cheers to that! Secondly, because I was switching from a Gillette razor, there was a bit of a learning curve in terms of shaving technique and how long the shaving process took. I definitely cut up my chin and jawline the first few times using this razor. However, as I continued to use it more and adjusted to the various holding angles for the different parts of my face, the shave got much easier and the results are noticeable (after about 8 months of use). The shave is much closer, so my face is much smoother. Initially when using this razor, I did get a couple of razor bumps, but now that I'm accustomed, I get none! The shave lasts about two days longer than when I use a Gillette razor, and the razor and blades are very finely weighted and crafted, so once you understand the different angles you can maneuver around your face with ease." —Shawn

4. An elastic organizer to detangle the huge ball of cords and chargers tumbling around in your bag.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I used to be like you. Wake up, blindly shower, maybe make some eggs if you have any energy left after those other chores. Weren't you planning on going to the gym this morning? Ugh, sorry health, lifting all the hard drives and other electronics from one bag and putting them in the other will have to do again, because it takes forever to get everything I need later in the day across the border from pack to duffle. Grid-It is like a Nexus pass for bags. Cross packs in seconds securely and hassle-free. You will be amazed by the gear combos you can pack on just one of these. I carry envelopes and stamps in the zip-up pocket on the back now and get a weird amount of admiration for keeping such old-school yet extremely relevant supplies on hand for friends or passers-by." —anonymous

Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

5. A scar cream that'll help you heal painful reminders of past injuries. No longer will you be haunted by that time you spilled boiling hot pasta water on your foot!

Promising review: "In November, I dropped my hair straightener on my ankle causing a serious burn. Once it became a scar, it was very dark and purple. I ordered this at the end of December and applied it every night after the shower and it is almost completely gone! I am very happy with the product because I never thought it would go away! 10/10 recommend!" —David Bouchelle

Get it from Amazon for $22.92.

6. A bottle of anti-dandruff shampoo to help with those pesky flakes.

amazon.com

It's got over 4,000 positive reviews, and works for more than just dandruff. I get recurring bouts of fungal acne on my forehead, and I recently starting using this at the recommendation of the interwebs (its key ingredient is an antifungal). Every other day, I slather it on the affected area like a wash-off mask, let it sit for a few minutes, and rinse off. My forehead looks better the next day!

Promising review: "This stuff is absolutely amazing. I was one step away from going to the dermatologist. I had severe dandruff that was so bad I could shake my head and it would come off. With just a few uses per week, I got rid of all of my flakes. My scalp also stopped burning from dryness. My hair has never been healthier." —Moo Moo

Get it from Amazon for $14.84.

7. Or Briogeo Scalp Revival Charcoal and Coconut Oil Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo that'll treat your your dry, flaky scalp to a nice exfoliating scrub treatment.

amazon.com

The pics above are from just one wash! This treatment is cruelty-free and made with tea tree, coconut, and peppermint oils. Plus it's from a Black woman-owned brand! 🙌

Promising review: "Totally amazing and beyond expectations. Chronic dry scalp for over a year, and with **one use**, super awesome results. My head feels fantastic and no more flaking. I'm going to buy a vat of this stuff and swim around in it! Really worth it." —Jana

Get it from Amazon for $42.

8. A sturdy, stackable shoe rack so you can stop tripping over all your loose sneakers every time you walk through the door.

amazon.com

Each three-tier rack can hold up to nine pairs of shoes.

Promising review: "This was SUPER easy to put together — it literally took me longer to open the box than it did for me to put the shelving together! I originally bought three and loved the look of them so much that I bought another three! It now holds ALL of our shoes in an organized row in our foyer, and now there's no clutter or mess in any of our closets. It also reminded me of ALL OF THE SHOES I own, and it's helped me to curb my shoe spending since I can now see exactly what I own!" —Joanna Kim

Get a three-tier rack from Amazon for $29.81.

9. A strong scraper to return your cast iron pan to its former glory...before you accidentally burned eggs on it.

amazon.com

It's got over 3,400 positive reviews!!!

Promising review: "I have been told I cackle wildly when using these. Where there used to be frustration and curse words, there is now glee and sweet satisfaction. Scraping pans, tins, and tray sheets has become a breeze since I bought these. Originally bought for my cast-irons, but the other cookware wanted in on that nonscratch, sweet sweet scrape action." —Amazon Customer

Get a set of two from Amazon for $8.76.

10. 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.

amazon.com, amazon.com

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

Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

11. A hairbrush cleaning tool to deal with the dreaded hair ball that gradually builds up over time. Get rid of that ball before it becomes sentient and gets you!

amazon.com

The reviewer above got such amazing results by using this tool along with soaking their brush in a Dawn and diluted-vinegar solution!

Promising review: "When I bought this I was really skeptical. I am grossed out by my hairbrush and clean it all the time. I've soaked it in vinegar and tea tree oil, used a toothbrush, scrubbed it with shampoo, picked it clean by hand — everything you can think of. Still, it's so hard to get the little lint that forms at the base of the brush — they don't dissolve off and you have to pick them off the bristles one by one because a toothbrush won't even break them up. This thing works amazingly. I don't know why, it just does — the particular texture of the bristles on this really grabs everything. It scraped the little lint rings right off and now my brush is cleaner, 10 times as fast." —HeartsofHavoc

Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

12. A cutlery organizer tray offering a place for each of your utensils, even the weird fork you don't like for some reason. Just tossing your items into the drawer willy-nilly is a thing of the past!

amazon.com

Promising review: "I thought this would be handy and help with space management in a small apartment. It turned out to be absolutely perfect. It keeps the silverware clean and stores a lot in a very small space. I love it. I got two, because I inherited my grandmother's silverware, so there are two types of forks and two types of spoons, and I wanted things separate and organized. Two organizers fit side-by-side in a standard apartment drawer. After getting these, I picked up the knife organizer, and it’s just as handy and useful." —Jerimi

Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in three styles).

13. Hypoallergenic, cruelty-free, and paraben-free makeup brush-cleaning "shampoo" for your worn bristles that could use their own makeover.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE this brush shampoo! I was a little skeptical of how well it would clean my brushes since I'd never tried it before, but after using this I am very pleased with the outcome. It has a faint shampoo scent but nothing too overpowering, and suds like you wouldn't believe. It got all the way down to the base of the brush and gave it a really good cleaning. One of my brushes is made from boar hair (Estée Lauder powder brush) and I was worried it was going to frizz it out and ruin the shape, but it actually improved it after I had previously used baby shampoo. It's very soft and not at all coarse feeling. I also used this shampoo on my Beauty Blender, and it did a great job getting all the foundation out. All in all, I'd rate this product a 10/10!" —Katastrophe

Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

14. 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

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

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

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).

17. A jar of O'Keeffe's hand cream you'll want to marinate your dry paws in all winter.

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

18. 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.

19. 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 $17.14.

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

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.

21. A collagen coating hair protein treatment to get your dry hair back into tip-top, silky shape just in time for the office holiday party.

Promising review: "My hair hasn't been this soft since I was a child. The most amazing part is that while it adds luster and softness, my hair isn't greasy at all. I have straight hair that has become damaged/frizzy from coloring and highlighting. I LOVE this conditioner." —Nancy

Get it from Amazon for $7.40.

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

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

23. An eye cream with three essential ceramides (1, 3, 6-II) to make you bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.

before: reviewer has dark circles after: reviewer face looks brighter and more alert
amazon.com

What are ceramides, you ask? They basically hold skin cells together and form a protective layer to keep out foreign elements like pollution.

Promising review: "This stuff changed my life. It got rid of the dark circles under my eyes and also worked for the folds around my mouth and nose. I have gotten so many compliments on my skin. I had serious bags and sagging skin at only 25. I have been using this in conjunction with doing facial exercises and after a month and a half my face is tighter and brighter. The only thing I don't like it that it stays on top of my skin and feels greasy. I am already oily, and so I have to wear this on a day I am not wearing makeup underneath or just at night. But for the results, I'll sacrifice! I included my one-and-a-half month results." —kelly vazquez

Get a two-pack from Amazon for $21.58.

24. 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.

25. A leather cleaner to bring your furniture, car seats, bags, shoes, and more back to useable condition.

Promising review: "I've used this on all of my favorite shoes and boots. Then I used it on my purse. It's enjoyable seeing how much improvement you can see on beat-up leather. The scent is what sold me on this product. I loved that it was an almond scent. But the results are so much better. It took about two minutes to clean them up. Highly recommended. Also their customer service is top-notch." —RileyD

27. A drain cover so you can fill your tub all the way to the tippy top.

amazon.com

Promising review: "Can I give this thing 10 gold stars? I have a four foot bathtub (so small it should be illegal) so I used to bring a towel in the tub to cover myself just to keep warm because the water was so shallow. I've used this drain cover three times and now I literally bask in my Epsom salt baths. The silence is wonderful; I used to seethe at hearing the precious bath water drip-drop down the overflow drain. Buy it, hands down a peace preserver." —M. Smith

Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

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

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

Promising review: "My older dog (15) has been suffering with long nails for some time. It's affected her ability to walk, and she's always falling. I've taken her to the groomer, tried to clip them myself, taken her walking and none of that helped. I even took her to the vet and had them put her under anesthesia to clip her nails. That didn't do much at all and they recommended I not do that often because of her age. So I got this and hoped for the best. I am beyond impressed and thankful! In one session this has made a huge difference. My dog didn't move or jerk around like she normally does. She just laid there and let me take care of her nails. I could not believe it. When we were done and she got up to walk, I could no longer hear the loud tapping on the floors. She is gonna have to get used to walking normally again." —georgiadiva2k

Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (also available as a kit with six sanding bands).

32. A John Frieda hot air brush better at giving you a glam blowout than your usual salon.

amazon.com

Promising review: "Let's face it. It's near impossible to get a salon blowout look at home. Your arms get tired, and trying to manage a brush and blow-dryer is a feat in and of itself. This brush is not just good, it's great! I love this brush! I actually like the way my hair turns out with this styler better than what I get at the salon — seriously. I love my hairdresser and she does a great job, but I have actually gotten more compliments on my hair when I do it myself with this tool. I'll probably get two more to give to my daughters as well, that's how much I love it. This is great and you can't beat the price!" —debbie

You get a caddy with a wand and six disposable sponges. Simply attach the disposable sponge to the wand, scrub around the whole toilet bowl, and pop the sponge in the trash (you never have to touch it!). You can also get more sponges when you're done with the included ones.

Promising review: "So, we have a toilet that belongs to the cats. We don't use it, we don't look at it, we like to pretend it does not exist. Even with semi-regular flushing, cat waste is pretty nasty stuff and built up quickly in the bowl. One of these wands cleaned it up in a single session!

I have been looking for something to get the hard water spots off my shower door and this did the trick! I've used it on all my bathroom fixtures and they are sparkling. It makes me want to keep cleaning; it works that well. It's a plus that there are no fumes and it's safe to use without gloves! Product actually smells really good, like toothpaste. I've already told my family about it! Will definitely buy again." —loveshoes!

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

Highly recommend this product if you’re like me and can’t eat a whole pineapple, strawberries, and other fruit fast!" —Sarah

Promising review: "I bought this for a money tree plant that my cat ate all the leaves and completely destroyed. The first pic was a week or so after using the fertilizer as recommended, on April 7, and the second is May 4. Of course I keep away from my cat at this point. Highly recommended fertilizer!" —Beth

Promising review: "Bought a used car to get back and forth to work. Only problem being the back was covered in bumper stickers. Eleven to be exact. I don't like bumper stickers. At all. This removed all of them in 25-30 minutes total no problem. Still has probably half the wheel left so I stuck it in my garage toolbox in case I need to eradicate any bumper stickers in the future." —PrestidgeSouthside
