    30 Products That Work So Well It’s Almost Ridiculous

    A product that actually does what it says it will do is pure *chef's kiss*.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Some may have been sent as samples, but all opinions and reviews are our own. 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 mattress vacuum because dust, dander and dust mites collect and build up in your mattress overtime. After one use, you'll be shocked, I repeat ~shocked~ at what you've been sleeping on this entire time.

    2. A Bissell air purifier in case you were completely shook by what came out of your mattress and are on a mission to get everything as clean as possible, including the air. This purifier has HEPA and carbon filters that can clear your bedroom or large room of allergens, pet dander, dust, pollen, smoke, and odors. It's also quiet so it won't keep you up all night while its working.

    3. A dog DNA kit to find out the history of your newly adopted runt. Maybe the results will inspire you to adopt another pet from the same breed so they'll have some family.

    4. A eucalyptus lavender pouch that'll add aromatherapy goodness to your routine shower and open your sinuses and lungs to reduce the symptoms of allergies. And its cute little pouch makes it easy to carry to and from the showers.

    5. A running tank complete with padding for lightweight support during your morning yoga routine, running errands, or lounging on the couch.

    6. A CeraVe daily moisturizer with built in SPF 30 you'll be so glad you have when the sun starts to flex this summer. 

    I LOVE this moisturizer. I've been undergoing treatments to lighten facial scars and other skin issues on my face. As a result, my dermatologist told me to try to stay out of the sun and make sure I have a good moisturizer AND wear sunscreen. Well, I also love to rock a full face of makeup, and putting on moisturizer AND sunscreen makes my face so oily I could dress a salad. I already use CeraVe facial wash and regular moisturizer so finding this one was a match made in Heaven. It doesn't make me super greasy and it wears fine underneath my foundation. Problem solved! 

    Get it from Amazon for $11.87.

    7. A tube of retinol night cream made with ingredients that'll work overnight, while you sleep, to plump up your skin to give you a firmer look. You'll literally be a ~sleeping beauty.~

    Promising review: "I cannot believe how well this is working! I've been using it consistently every night with moisturizer for one week and I'm already seeing drastic results to smooth out my cystic acne scars on my cheeks! I'm so excited that I've found something that doesn't break out my acne-prone, eczema-prone, highly sensitive skin." —Emily Hill

    8. An Elizavecca CER-100 Collagen Protein Treatment so you raise your hair back from the dead of over-processing and other damage. It'll literally breathe new life into those strands leaving you with fuller, healthier looking and feeling hair.

    This works great for all hair types!

    Promising review: "I have 4c hair and was looking for a protein treatment for my thin and fragile. I had recently used a product in my hair that had so much alcohol in it; that wreaked havoc on my hair, leaving it pretty damaged. I was very skeptical about this product because I have never seen anyone with my hair type use it. Boy was I wrong to doubt this product, it left my hair looking and feeling beautiful. I highly recommend it to anyone natural or with curly hair." —Therese-Claire

    Get it from Amazon for $7.90.

    9. A stain and odor remover used mostly to remove messes from pets, but reviewers say it also works wonders on vomit, both from pets and tiny humans. 

    Rocco & Roxie Supply Co. is the family-owned small biz behind this miracle formula. They make really cool and useful products for pets and the humans who love them. 

    Promising review: "HOLY (insert every expletive here)!!!! This stuff is amazing!!! Unbelievably good, a true miracle product. I recently moved into a house that I used to rent to college kids. Unfortunately one of them had a dog that apparently thought all carpeting was a place to pee. I had about given up (tried all the nature’s miracle formulas and several others) and was about to suck it up and figure out how to pay to have the entire house re-carpeted. I tried this as a last ditch effort after some research. I tested it on a particularly ugly, dark stain and followed the directions. I left it to for sit 2 hours and then put a bunch of paper towels (quality counts there too) and stepped on it a bunch of times to suck up the fluid. The brand new carpet underneath was nothing short of amazing!!!! It looked fresh, smelled good and was the original color!!!! That was it for me, I bought the gallon size (you do use a considerably amount of product per stain) and went to town. I’m back for another gallon now to finish off the work and I am so shocked by how well this works I was compelled to shout it to the world. This is worth every cent you pay for it, it just works! I’m telling all my friends/family about this stuff because bonus — it works amazingly on kid vomit also! (Something I am unfortunately all too familiar with!) If you’re on the fence about the price tag — take the leap, you will NOT be sorry!" —Metal_will_never_die

    10. A robot mop that's pretty much one of the best inventions ever because it literally does the chore of mopping for you. Oh yes, no hands! It's like having a personal housekeeper that'll come around and mop up the place you dropped peanut butter during one of your late-night snack binges.

    Promising review: "I love my Braava jet; it mops so I don't have to. I've had it for about six months and it makes my floors absolutely sparkle. It's not heavy duty; if you want something that really scrubs your floors, this won't do it. But a regular, gentle mop that keeps a floor clean and dirt/dust free? Absolutely. It picks up perfectly where my Roomba leaves off and grabs what it missed." —Danielle

    11. A bamboo mason bee house so you can attract these tiny buzzers to your garden in a gentle and safe way. Pollinators are so important to the environment and placing this house in your pollinator garden will help to fight the decline in bees. Save the bees!

Plus you can convert it into a handheld vac for quick jobs. Not having to lug a huge vacuum around will make tidying up so much easier.

    15. A compact Dash stand mixer perfect for rekindling your love of baking or finally working up the nerve to attempt that Pinterest recipe for a spicy dip.

    16. A fizzing Johnny Drops because sharing a communal space can get really messy really fast. You can just ~drop~ this in the toilet to help keep things tidy.

    17. A Furbo camera for pet owners who want help keeping an eye on their pet while they're gone at work or out running errands. You can monitor your pet from your smart device, and toss your pet a treat to give them a little reminder that you're not too far away.

If this is also your problem, then these cooling bamboo blankets will be a welcomed addition to your lifestyle.

    Promising review: "I was skeptical but thought it was worth a try as I wake up every night sweating and uncomfortable. I like more than a sheet on but was looking for something lightweight...this is it!!! I absolutely LOVE it. My only regret is that I didn't order this sooner. I have not had a hot flash since I ordered it. It's very soft and light and just perfect ♥" —Suzi 

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in five sizes and 12 colors). 

    30. An 8-quart 11-in-1 Instant Pot that AIR FRIES ready to become the one kitchen gadget you can't live without. Pretty much everything you want to do in your kitchen, you'll be able to to do with this Instant Pot. Air fry, roast, bake, dehydrate, slow cook, steam, sauté and more!

    Promising review: "What else can you say about this product? It will replace three appliances that I use on a regular basis — rice cooker, air fryer, and pressure cooker. That's important to me because at this point kitchen space is at a premium. The packaging is great, the instructions are very clear and well written and it works very well. The first use was to make chicken bone broth using the pressure cooker feature. It worked flawlessly. Two hour cook time. 10 min prep, 30 min to cool off. Three hours later I had homemade bone broth in the refrigerator. And the whole house didn't smell for 24 hours like it would with an open pot method. Anyway, the instant pot is a huge kitchen innovation IMO. Just get one, and use it." —Josh Brainard
