    1. 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.

    2. A trio of mason jar lids with flip-top spouts for easy pouring on-the-go.


    Promising review: "A lot of thought went into the design of these premium quality mason jar caps. Having gotten excellent service from other County Line Kitchen products, I only hesitated about the price of these, but once I received them and my family started used them, I could see they are worth every penny. We generally use them for quart and half gallon size jars filled with cold brewed tea and coffee and they are easy to screw onto these wide mouthed jars with no cross threading. The flip top portion does not flop down when pouring, making it safer to handle the heavy jars by using both hands. Haven't had a single drip or leak of any kind and the sturdy construction of the caps makes it seem like they will serve us well for years to come. Plus I love the fact they are dishwasher-safe. Thank you, County Line Kitchen, for another fine product. Well done!" — dakwrite

    3. A tube of primer to ensure your amazing makeup masterpiece stays put all day long.

    Promising review: "So let me start by saying I have used nearly every eyeshadow primer available. From high-end to low — Mac, Lorac, Urban Decay...they don't hold a candle to Thank Me Later.I have very oily skin. I use this primer and my shadow lasts a full eight hours or more. I could get maybe five or six out of the other brands, if I'm lucky. I got this as a sample in my Ipsy bag, and I had to buy the full-size product straight away! I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Thank you Elizabeth Mott for finally making a primer that lasts! I love this stuff!" —Melissa Mae

    4. A rolling over-bed desk so you can turn working from home into working from bed.


    This is also good for breakfast in bed, reading, and other activities.

    Promising review: "Absolutely love it! Bought this to go over my king size bed for when my husband and I eat and watch a movie together. :) Works great! We also sometimes will work from our bed with our laptops and we left the sides and back off for more room. It fits great over our big bed and we both can work with both of our laptops and still have plenty of room on it. Received the item fast and was easy to put together. Great quality too! Thank you so much!" —Ni

    5. 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

    6. A felt cave-style cat bed that seems to please even the pickiest of felines.,

    Promising review: "Our cat Cody is VERY particular — he's a cat, that's what cats do — but I had to find something to replace his favorite winter bed that I threw away because it had seen better days. He loves wool and I was hoping he would take the cave bed. It arrived and I told him the box was a gift for him (he gets excited about boxes). Cody patiently sat watching while I opened the box and took out the beautiful Meowfia felt cat cave (it really is a work of art). I opened it, shaped it, and put it on the floor. He looked at it, smelled it, and climbed inside. In the next hour he popped his head out whenever anyone approached the bed (he looked like a prairie dog), but thereafter nothing could wake him up until he was ready. It's his and he let our dog know it! A big success in our household. Thank you Meowfia!" —Carole

    7. An air purifying bag to help finally rid your home or car or wherever of that gross smell. There, now you can have guests again; you're welcome.

    Promising review: "This product is a MIRACLE! Mistakenly left a package of chicken breasts from the supermarket in my brand new Audi. Subsequently went on vacation for ten days. The chicken was left rotting in the car in the garage for twelve days! I can't begin to describe how wretched the smell was on our return. We aired out the car for days — still stunk to high hell! I tried Febreeze and other so-called aerosol odor eliminators, which would temporarily help, but the acrid smell would come right back. I honestly thought my new car might be ruined. Used two bags of Moso (one small, one large). This activated charcoal really works. After one week, the smell was significantly dissipated. Now at the end of two weeks, it is virtually gone. Wow! Thank you Moso for saving my car from dead chicken hell!" —JAC ESQ

    8. Foreo Luna Mini 2 — a handy lil gadget ready to exfoliate and cleanse your face, leaving it feeling brand spankin' new.


    Promising review: "I bought this about a month ago after seeing all the hype it got on BuzzFeed. I have oily, sensitive, acne-prone skin, and have always been wary of chemical exfoliants-most just tend to irritate my skin and make me break out more. The first thing that drew me to the Luna mini 2 was that I'd never need to buy replacement heads. I was a little concerned about the price tag, but I reminded myself that the upfront cost would be one-and done since there's no brush heads to buy. And honestly, this brush has been worth every penny! After the first use, my skin felt the smoothest it has ever felt! The only (minor) drawback, was that the first week or two, I did see a temporary 'purge' of gunk from my pores that resulted in a temporary spike in breakouts, which other reviewers have mentioned, but this was thankfully short lived. Now after a nearly a month of use, my skin is more radiant, softer/smoother, breaking out less, and even I'm starting to see a reduction in the size of my huge pores, which no product has ever given me before-. I also have a better oil balance in my skin<. o for me, the results have taken a little time have totally been worth the wait! Needless to say, I'm very pleased with this product and have been recommending it to all of my friends. Thanks, Foreo!" —Knonymously

    Get it from Amazon for $139 (available in five colors).

    9. 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 Stick, it shines again. Thank you so much!" —C.Skinner

    Get it from Amazon for $5.24.

    10. An Amazon Fire Stick that lets you stream all the shows, movies, and music you could ever want.


    The Fire Stick is super easy to use and lets you stream all sorts of programs from Netflix to YouTube.

    Promising review: "Amazon itself is pure quality as far as I'm concerned, and the Fire Stick has made it even greater. I would feel safe in saying that 90% of all that we order comes from Amazon. The service and prices have been quality. With the Fire Stick, we have so much to choose from when it comes to movies, documentaries, weekly programs, and so much more. We've barely scratched the service that comes with it, yet we're already impressed with it. It is 100% a bargain all the way. Thanks Amazon, you are a great company." —anthony williams

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

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

    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).

    12. Breathable, buttery microfiber sheets so you can feel like you're living in a hotel every night. Eloise and the Plaza have nothing on your bed.


    Promising review: "I am SHOCKED at how great these are!!! I don't understand how I got such quality at such a low price. I bought a different brand prior and they were so rough — but that's what I expected for the price point. These feel LUXURIOUS. SO soft. No weird smell. Fit great. They're even somewhat resistant to pet hair because there are no rough fibers to pull and trap the hairs. I am saving up to buy two more sets in different colors because they are so impressive! Also the color match is accurate. Just had the best night's sleep! Don't buy more expensive sheets. These are comparable to sheets I've had at high end hotels — you know, the kind of sheets you wish you could sneak home with you. I honestly feel thankful to have found these!" —sadie marie

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in sizes Twin–California King and 20 colors).

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

    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 $10.85.

    14. A Squatty Potty stool so you can finally poop as nature intended.

    15. A two-inch gel memory foam mattress topper to ensure you actually get a good night's rest.


    Promising review: "So, I have peripheral neuropathy. I needed something soft. This wasn't a pleasure purchase for me. I followed Linenspa's good, concise directions about airing overnight and then placed it on my futon in the living room. When I woke up I really didn't think it made much of a difference. I went about my daily routine and made some coffee and went out on my back deck to read the news and drink my coffee. When I came back in our puppy needed something or other in the living room so I went to her and sat down on the futon again. The difference was ahmazing. Between the hard seat and the futon the difference was so remarkable that I made my husband do it too! Thank you, Linenspa for coming between me and my futon!!!🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟" —Kaye Ralene White-Hancock

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in sizes Twin–California King).

    16. A nostalgic candle that smells like whatever state has the most sentimental value for you.


    Promising review: "I’ve seen this brand online, and when my best friend got accepted to UCSD, I knew I wanted to give him a meaningful present: the scent of NorCal! This gift is so thoughtful for anyone who is moving away from home or is about to embark on a new location. The scent and size were well worth the value too! Thank you." —Francesca Ramirez

    Get it from Amazon for $29.94 (available in all 50 states, plus two halves of California and DC).

    17. A batter dispenser for people who struggle to get evenly sized cupcakes or pancakes.


    Promising review: "Finally a kitchen utensil that saves time, mess, and frustration! I ordered this because my 10-year-old daughter loves to make pancakes but she also leaves an incredible mess. She also loves to make cupcakes and that's even a double mess. So we searched Amazon to find something that would help us out, and lo and behold, we found this gadget. Upon receiving the batter dispenser, my daughter took it out of the package and started making pancakes right away without my instructions. She loved the ease to make the pancakes in the container and then one click on the pan with no mess. Thank you for your excellent customer support!! We will recommend this to our family and friends and anybody else we talk to in the world." —Jim Hudson

    This hypoallergenic, noncomedogenic, fragrance-free face cream is made with hyaluronic acid and ceramides to provide nongreasy 24-hour hydration. I use CeraVe products because they're affordable and very trust-worthy.

    Promising review: "I've tried all the bougie moisturizers, doctor prescribed and Tatcha included but this is the best. I can't stress enough how good this is to my skin. I have lupus and otherwise chronically dry peeling skin. My sassy co-workers often ask what is wrong with my face and I've always just had to deal with it. Using this morning and night fixed it — immediately. Now my face can be appreciated for its true and radiant glory. THANK YOU FACE MOISTURIZER COMPANY ❤️" —Bianca B.

    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.

    20. An electric bottle opener that works so well, you'll realize you were living in the dark ages with that corkscrew all these years., Amazon

    21. 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.

    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

Thanks, Orolay team, for a great product!" —_

    23. John Frieda's Hot Brush to help you achieve salon-level hair without having to step outside.

    Promising review: "WOW! What can I say. This product is awesome!!! I have curly hair and have been straightening it for a while now but using tons of oils, keratin products, leave in conditioners etc. along with a straightener which seems to be creating a little bit of frizz and split ends. When I set out to search for a product to help my hair, I came across this. Not only is this product amazing, but it makes my hair feel silky and soft while making it look shiny and straight and perfect. I don't need to use any flat irons anymore, or any of the products that I was putting in my hair. I simply shampoo and condition my hair and dry it with this and like magic, my hair looks like i just came from the salon. Thank you, John Freida for making an amazing product that I know I can count on to make my hair look simply amazing! This is a definite must for anyone. This is an A+ product!" —Linda

This has been by far the only product that has actually done an excellent job of getting rid of acne. I’m truly satisfied with this product. This is a life savor! Having clearer skin has uplifted my spirit, boosted my confidence, and has allowed me to not wear as much makeup. I will continue to use this product for years to come. Thank you!!" —Jennifer S.

This product made my table look brand new! And being food-safe, the grandkids can eat snacks on here without worry of harsh chemicals. Plan on conditioning both pieces every few months now. Thank you!" —Conscientious Consumer
