    1. Glossier Invisible Shield that uses a fast absorbing water gel formula to help you get in the habit of applying your sunscreen every day. Say bye-bye to white-cast because this is translucent and melts right into your skin.


    Promising review: "I had never used sunscreen as part of my daily routine before. I always knew I needed to, but I could never find one that I didn't find to be too greasy underneath my makeup. This sunscreen is amazing. It is super light and smells amazing, but it actually works! I used this for a week-long beach vacation and my skin was very happy. Would highly recommend." —Anna

    Get it from Glossier for $25.

    2. Traction mats to help your car get unstuck if you get trapped in mud, snow, or sand. Instead of paying loads of money for a tow truck, you can get yourself out of a sticky situation for a fraction of the price — they're lightweight so they won't weigh down your car and you won't need to push or pull. Just line them up in front of your tires and start driving.

    These are great if you're someone who likes to take your car off the beaten path. If you're ever stuck in one of these situations, you'll be happy to have these guys in your trunk!

    Promising review: "These traction pads are amazing! For anybody that's never used them, essentially you jam them against your drive tires in slick conditions or if you're stuck in sand, and your tires grip them and pull you right out! The bright orange makes them easy to see after digging them into the mud, and the knobs are durable enough to withstand a very large truck's beating. For the price, the quality, the durability, and the hundreds of uses, you can't go wrong with these. If I could give them six stars I would have!" —sean

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $164.44+ (available in three styles and three colors).

    3. A tea organizer so you don't crowd your kitchen counter with a gazillion boxes. Plus, you won't have to make a mess rifling through a million spice bottles and condiments to find the one you're looking for.

    This organizer can hold approximately 100 tea bags.

    Promising review: "I love tea. In fact, I don't drink coffee so I buy a lot of varieties of tea and then put it in my cabinet and promptly forget them. I finally saw this product and bought it to help organize them. Who knew I had so many different teas! I totally forgot I had most of them. Now I have a neat display of my teas and can easily choose what tea I am in the mood for without taking things out of my cupboard. It looks great on my countertop near my fridge and doesn't take a lot of room. Love it. It's my new favorite thing. Worth every penny. Now I think I need another one." —Kasia K

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in two styles).

    4. An undated weekly to do list with a magnetic bottom side, which means you'll never forget your important tasks. Every time you open your fridge you'll be reminded of the things that may have slipped your mind.

    Model writing on weekly to do bad hanging on refrigerator

    This pad has 60 tear off undated sheets that will allow you to plan out your entire year.

    Promising review: "This weekly planner pad is perfect! It's very cute with its floral design and the color-coded days are a nice touch. I like the bubble-style bullets, which you can check off or fill in as you complete the tasks. I especially appreciate that Saturday and Sunday get their own individual boxes, rather than having both days crammed into one small box, like many other weekly notepads do. The weekend is when you have the most chores and errands! It totally makes sense to allocate individual boxes for each day! I especially like the "bonus" Next Week box, since I can jot things to do in the following week (things I would otherwise, forget, guaranteed). The cardboard backing is very sturdy and the sheets are nice and thick. I can actually use an eraser on the paper without the paper crinkling or ripping. I also like that there are enough sheets to last a whole year of weekly planning. I'm definitely buying another one to use for next year!" —sooshi

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95+.

    5. A 15-pack of three compartment meal prep containers that will save you time and money. These sturdy boxes will inspire you to prepare your meals for the week and allow you to separate your veggies, grains, and protein in one container. Stick them in the fridge, pop in the microwave, and toss them in the dishwasher afterwards.,

    These are microwave, dishwasher, and freezer safe!

    Promising review: "These containers have been a lifesaver for me. I recently am doing the keto diet and prep is a huge part of success, not only for me but my husband as well for packed lunches for work. The size is perfect to fit in lunch boxes and store in an icebox. I cook and freeze as well and they hold up great. All around this was a great buy! Storage containers are expensive, and most don't hold up in the microwave very long and get stains; not the case with these at all." —Paula R.

    Get a 15-pack from Amazon for $15.86 (also available in three bulk sizes).

    6. A pill organizer with slots for every day of the week and time. Now, you can separate your morning vitamins and medications from the ones you take afternoon, evening, and night.

    Model taking pill box out of container

    There is one tray per day and four time compartments per tray (morning, noon, evening, and bedtime).

    Promising review: "I have had this for a few months now. I don’t think I’ve missed any medicine since I started using it. I am on ten different meds, which I take several times a day. This is perfect. I love that I can put the day in my purse or pocket and I am set for the day." —Karen R. Starken

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    7. A hanger stacker — Now, you can finally pick up the tangled ones sprawled across your closet floor. This will prevent them from getting damaged when not in use.

    Promising review: "The struggle with hangers has been real for quite some time, I wish I would have known about this thing sooner! This has saved me a TON of room and hassle!" —Kara Adams

    Get it from Amazon for $18.56+.

    8. A water bottle with eight silicone bands so you can keep that promise to yourself that you'll drink more water. This beautifully designed bottle will help you remember to take a gulp each hour for eight hours, which means that adding this to cart ensures you'll be hydrated all day long.

    Reviewer holding water bottle in hand

    Promising review: "Best money I’ve ever spent. I used to hate drinking water throughout the day and could never remember to do it, but this bottle turns water intake into a game. I have increased my daily water intake by over five times without even thinking about it, and I feel so much happier and healthier. Don’t even think twice about this purchase. It is SO worth it!!" —Anna

    Get it from Amazon for $16.65 (available in a variety of sizes, styles, and colors).

    9. A keychain car escape tool because it's better to be safe than sorry. If your car accidentally falls into water or an accident causes your door, window, or seatbelt to jam, this gadget can break through it.


    This thing looks small but boy is it mighty! A perfectly safe, spring-loaded stainless steel spike punctures the window with minimal effort so anyone stuck in a vehicle can get out. Similarly, this item also has a stainless steel razor blade that slices through seat belts.

    Promising review: "I love that this fits onto a keyring. Many of these products are designed to go into your glove compartment, but the problem that I have with that concept is that in the event of an accident, the glove compartment might pop open, sending the contents flying all over the car, and you might not be able to find or reach the tool. With this product, it's on your keyring, and your keys will almost certainly still be in the ignition, and easily accessible." —Patrick W.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95+ (available in a variety of colors and in multipacks)

    10. Sticky note dividers so you can keep your notebook or planner organized. Instead of having to flip through endless pages trying to find the info you need, you'll have a cheat sheet to save you time and stress.

    Promising review: "These babies are pretty sturdy and they make putting notes in a book, or planner, or magazine, or whatever a complete breeze. I really like the ease of these and if you are creative you can make these work for any project. I use them in my textbooks to summarize my notes on a chapter. I also have short-term memory loss after a car accident. I like reading novels, but can't remember things. So I use one of these as a bookmark and take a few minutes to jot down key things from the book. I really, really, really like these and I am glad they exist." —Delaney

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $16.75

    11. A roller ball so you can give yourself a deep massage after a challenging workout or stressful day. Just roll it on the areas where you feel stiff or sore and wait for the magic — you can even use massage oil or cream to make it feel like a more ~luxurious~ experience.


    To use these effectively, place the massage balls under the areas of muscle tension and use your body weight to ease into the massage. Gravity does all the rest!

    Promising review: "This is my first ever product review. I think these things are going to save my life. I’ve been having issues with a terrible trigger point in my back from working as a dentist and the last two weeks have been excruciating and constantly painful. 10 (also somewhat excruciating) minutes rolling around on the floor with these things have almost completely wiped away my pain in a way human hands never could. I love you little massage balls." —BabySanta

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $10.95 (available in three color combinations).

    12. An electric charcoal toothbrush with nylon brushes to give your teeth a deep clean. The vibrations are gentle enough to use on sensitive gums and can help curb bleeding, and it even has a two minute timer and comes with a complimentary whitening strip or floss.

    Subscribers are eligible to receive a lifetime guarantee of a free replacement if the toothbrush becomes damaged. Each order includes a toothbrush, toothbrush head, USB charging base, and USB wall adapter.

    Promsing review: “My teeth are so clean, they squeak now! It’s insane! I would eat off of my own teeth if they were a floor and my food fell on them. That's how clean they are. I wish everything were as clean as my teeth.” —Lisa D

    Get it from Burst for $69.99 (originally $89.98, available in three colors.)

    13. A handheld garment steamer that makes getting the wrinkles out of your clothes easy. Just unscrew the top, add a little water, hang your item up, and move the steamer up and down the item until it's wrinkle-free., Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I’ve had this for a few months now and I use it all the time! It heats up so fast and steams the fabric within seconds! I have had no problems with water spitting out or being burnt at all. I love this machine so much I am bringing it with me on my international trips! So I have to say don’t think twice this is a must-buy!" —Emily

    Get it from Amazon for $19.82.

    15. Cable clips so you can keep your wires organized and untangled. These even have an adhesive back so they can stick to any surface and are guaranteed to stay put.


    Promising review: "If you have devices that need to be charged and you want to keep your cables neat, tidy, and in place, you need this product. You could also use your imagination to find other uses! I have purchased two packs of these and used them all! I simply could not imagine life without these cable clips!" —Mike Tickle

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $6.97.

    16. A two-pack silicone soup cube tray perfect for meal prepping, saving leftover soup, and broth. Each tray has four cells with four fill lines in each (½ cup, 1 cup, 125 mL, 250 mL) and it even comes with a lid to seal in odor and reduce the potential for leakage. But! Its best feature is that you can pop it in the oven (up to 415 degrees and without the lid!) straight from the freezer.

    Frozen soup in souper cube next to bowl of hot soup

    Souper Cubes are BPA-free and dishwasher-safe. Each set comes with two extra large silicone freezing trays with lids.

    Promising review: "I purchased these Souper Cubes two years ago for myself, and recently purchased them for my mom as well. I LOVE THEM! I've been making my own chicken stock for over a decade, and have stored/frozen it in both glass Mason jars as well as plastic storage bags. I can't tell you how many jars have broken when I've been in a hurry to defrost the broth, or how many bags have leaked when I've defrosted those in hot water (I don't like using plastic in the microwave). Gallons of homemade stock, lost. :( These cubes completely changed how I freeze and store stock and leftover soups or sauce. These require less space in the freezer than glass Mason jars (they stack on top of each other), and the frozen cubes pop right out of the molds very easily. Defrosting a single cube or four at once is also so much faster. I can go from a frozen cube to hot broth in three minutes in my microwave if I forget to pull it out ahead of time when cooking. I haven't had any staining from tomato-based products, and these wash/store easily when I'm not using them. I would absolutely buy again." —Heather

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99.

    17. O'Keeffe's hand cream that is a must have now for fingers that are constantly being washed and sanitized. This moisturizes dry cracked skin back to health.

    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

    Get a 3.4-ounce jar from Amazon for $7.99.

    18. An bamboo Squatty Potty toilet stool because you were today-years-old when you realized there's a proper way to ~go~. This simple device even fits in with any bathroom decor.

    Squatty potty on bathroom floor

    It works because the angle it helps you sit (aka squatting) is more conducive to an effortless bowel movement. Check out this BuzzFeeder's full review of the Squatty Potty for all the deets!

    Promising review: "This is such a classy squatty potty. The plastic ones are not my style but this thing is so nice and so clean looking. I love that it has two different height options depending on your needs. It was a little confusing to put together because the instructions weren’t very clear but once we figured it out it took two seconds." —Yoshi Yui

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    19. A plant-based makeup brush shampoo — you're supposed to clean them at least once per week, but let's be real, it's been a while. This cleaner makes sure your tools are sanitized thoroughly.

    Promising review: "Well, I can happily say that this cleaner does a bang-up job! My brushes were saturated with old color, to the point that I thought I might need to spring for a new set. Aside from just looking bad, though, all that old color was probably affecting pigment and application any time I used them. A little of this cleaner, a handful of seconds working it in and rinsing, and my brushes look practically as good as the day I bought them! Saved me a ton of money in new brushes, and it didn't take away from my being-lazy time!" —ysar

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    20. Adidas Ultraboost 20 sneakers to make your morning jog feel like walking on air. The lightweight knit allows your foot to breathe whether you're doing a mile run or a quick sprint.

    Promising review: "These are the BEST shoes I have EVER purchased.They are the most comfortable shoes I have ever put on my feet. It’s like walking on a cloud. I will never go back to other brands. My feet, ankles, and knees no longer hurt. The fit is perfect.." —CATT33

    Fun facts: It's waterproof, heat and cold resistant, durable, flexible, shock resistant and electrically insulating (up to 24 volts). It sets strong and in place by turning into a durable, tactile silicone rubber overnight!

    Promising review: "This thing has so many uses! I keep buying this over and over. I've used this moldable glue to mount things, organize wiring in stereo cabinets, stop rattles (my license plate rattled when closing the trunk and two little balls of Sugru to the back of plate did the trick), and I've even made tool hangers in the garage with it." —fastrnu

    Get a pack of eight from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in seven colors).

    Promising review: "Love this beautiful pan. I've been telling everyone about it! I really do use it for everything. It’s surprisingly light. The non toxic/non-stick surface makes cooking that much more healthy and easy. I never even put the pan away (it’s always on my stove top) because I use it so much and I love looking at pride and joy." —Kerby C.

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

    23. A bidet attachment so your nethers feel as fresh as a daisy after you ~go~. The device takes minutes to attach, will improve your personal hygiene, elevate your bathroom, and save you tons of $$$ on toilet paper. Who knew luxury could be so eco-friendly?!


    Promising review: "At first, my wife was very weary about using a bidet, and at one point called the idea as "unAmerican" but now, neither of us can't imagine a world without it. Toilet paper lasts longer, water usage is down. Went to a cabin recently without a bidet and using the bathroom was the only bad experience about that cabin, I'm actually back to purchase another for my second bathroom!" —John I.

    Get it from Tushy for $99+ (originally 129, available in two colors).

    Promising review: "I impulse bought this lip balm after dropping my old (cheaper) one of the floor. I was not expecting much, as lip balm is typically a temporary fix for my extremely dry, sensitive lips, but this stuff is MAGICAL! My lip are truly smooth all the time WITHOUT rashes, like I get with other lip products! I love this so much, and I can’t wait to purchase again." —Whitney

    Get it from Biossance for $14.

    Promising review: "Dudes, I can't tell you how much I don't like folding clothes. I also can't express to you how much I don't want to write a review on amazon, but here's the thing. I whip out this thing like it's cash money and flip it around like it a two dollar bill you've never seen before. I get my laundry done in six minutes max. Flat. I'm throwing everything in there, towels. Shirts. Pants. My grandmother's bathrobe. This is the best purchase I've had from Amazon. God bless my clothes looking like the gap." —Mac

    27. A weighted knit blanket made from organic cotton that provides warmth and comfort without making you sweat. It's buttery soft and the extra weight may help you relax and have a more restful sleep.


    Promising review: "This blanket works and looks great. It has helped my sleep quality, while also looking stylish in my basket of throws - unlike most weighted blankets that are fairly utilitarian and ugly. I'm very happy with my purchase" —Amy D.

    Get it from Sephora for $39.00.

    29. A ribbed halter top with a built-in bra — this stretchy top provides maximum comfort and support without any wires. It goes with absolutely anything and can be dressed up under a blazer or down with a pair of sweats. BRB, going to snatch these up in every available hue.

    Klassy Network

    Klassy Network is a woman-owned small business and fashion brand that is most known for their Brami tops. They also sell blouses, bottoms, swimwear and eyewear.

    *I* wish that every top I owned was a Brami top so I could trash all of my traditional bras. I own a few of their shirts in different styles and they are absolutely amazing! Somehow the shirts provide the support of a bra without you having to actually wear a bra. It feels extremely comfortable. The fabric is soft and very well made. I truly do wish that there was a way to apply this fabulous non-bra bra technology to every single blouse. (Psst, their customer service is amazing!)

    Promising review: "I totally love these Brami Halter tops. Being a cup size C; not having to wear a bra was almost impossible for me. With the Brami I am so happy that I do not have to use a bra plus still keep my boobs in place. These are so versatile that I used them every where .. all the time.. even to do yoga. I just love them!" —Zaidy B.

    Get it from Klassy Network for $39.99 (available in sizes XS—3XL and five sizes).

    Get it from 3D Printed by Brian on Etsy for $5.20.

    31. An adjustable satin-lined beanie to keep your head warm and your locks silky. The inner texture helps your hair retains moisture, reduces damage, and calms frizz, plus can be worn outside, while lounging, and to bed. Now, you never have to worry about your satin scarf slipping off while you sleep.

    Grace Eleyae

    Grace Eleyae is a Black woman-owned brand that originally debuted in 2014 after the founder experienced excessive breakage after an eight hour road trip due to not having protection for her hair. The line specializes in silk and satin lined headwear that can be worn throughout all seasons as sleep, lounge-, and outerwear.

    *I* personally own one of these amazing caps and it has changed my life. My scarf never stayed on my head throughout the night so I always experienced frizz in the morning. I adjust this cap with the hidden drawstrings and haven't experienced that problem since I started using it. The cap is also perfect for rainy, windy, or humid days. A traditional hat without the satin/silk allows the humidity to seep under and cause major frizz or leave me with the dreaded 'hat hair.' With the Grace Eleyae cap, I can style my hair before placing the cap on and when I get to my destination and take it off, it looks exactly as I styled it.

    Promising review: "I really love the adjustable slap satin-lined caps because they also have elastic and trust me when I tell you: it stays on your head. I'm a restless sleeper and most caps end up under my bed in the mornings! Not the Grace Eleyae, it stayed on my head and my hair felt smooth and silky in the morning. I got a lot of complements when I wore it to the store. I purchased three colors and just love these caps." —Jacqueline B.

    Get it from Grace Eleyae for $29.95.

    32. Reusable paper-less towels because why waste more money on paper towels when you can buy these?! Just wring these super absorbent wipes out and toss them in the washing machine so you can use them again and again.

    Promising review: "I adore these! I had bought some cheaper paperless towels that did not hold up particularly well to washing and were not very absorbent. I replaced them with these! I absolutely love the variety of patterns and they’re extremely high quality, soft, thick and durable. They'd be great for use in the kitchen for mopping up spills or wiping surfaces. They arrived quickly and in package-free shipping materials. I highly recommend investing in these." —Sarah

    Get a six-pack from Saged Home on Etsy for $16.50+ (available in six colors).

    33. A three-pack of blue-light-blocking glasses for anyone who spends all day looking at a digital screen — aka absolutely everyone. Reviewers say wearing these can reduce headaches, glare, blurred vision, and eye strain, plus the designs are pretty darn stylish!,

    The glasses come with a screw for tightening and a microfiber cloth.

    Promising review: "I love that in this box not only do you receive cloths to clean the lens but also a tiny screwdriver for adjusting. The glasses were very well packaged and the quality was superb! I usually do a lot of homework late at night (mostly in the dark so that my toddler doesn’t wake up) after being on the computer all day for work and would get headaches. After a few days of wearing them all day (literally) these things are a great purchase! Not to mention stylish:) Three pairs is a win-win for me!" —J. Guzman

    Get it from Amazon for $16.98 (available in 16 different sets).

    Promising review: "If you are doubting this product, stop what you are doing and buy it right now. It WILL change your life. I had SEVERE eczema on my face and it was incredibly painful: I had red, inflamed, itchy, flaky skin. I tried everything, from organic to high-priced products, and nothing worked until I picked up a $2 sample of this at Walgreens after reading the reviews online. Well, it is a miracle product. My face feels amazing. I use it twice daily, and my eczema is gone. It has also diminished my acne breakouts by 98%. I also want to add that I didn't get anything for free or was asked to do this review, I just honestly needed to share my experience." —Susana Rodriguez

    Get it from Amazon for $16.08.

    35. A no-touch brass keychain door opener and stylus — aka you'll never have to touch a digital screen or door handle in public ever again. Use this instead of your hands at the ATM or to enter stores, then easily clip to your hip or place in your pocket.

    The under eye patches are free of parabens, fragrance, silicones, and dye.

    Promising review: "I’ve tried cheaper brands here on Amazon but I think I’ll be a Skyn Iceland fan for life! I’ve used their other eye products, face washes, and masks and they’re of top quality! I put these in the freezer then apply them to my eyes for 10 minutes. They feel great! The coldness helps to wake you up. After your eyes are hydrated and significantly less puffy. I also suffer from dark circles and these have helped immensely. Well worth it." —Student

    Promising review: "I had peeling, weak nails for years and I had tried everything. I bought this in February. This size bottle lasted a bit more than a month religiously applying it two to three times a day. I was really seeing great improvement so I bought another bottle in late March. By May, all the peeling had grown out and my nails were getting stronger every day. I then bought the big 4-ounce refill bottle because I never want to run out of it again! Cannot recommend this stuff enough!" —Diana

    39. A Gobble food delivery subscription so you can save major $$$, cut down on ordering take out, and eat full nutritious meals. You can completely customize your meal plan and can also cancel at anytime.

    Elizabeth Lilly / BuzzFeed

    Gobble offers weekly deliveries of chef prepared ingredients. Each recipe takes less than 15 minutes to make. You can choose what you want to receive from their menu which includes low carb and veggie options.

    "Behold my beautiful shrimp dish that I whipped up in a mere 20 minutes and even my southern mama (a tough critic who often feeds me veggies in fritters and bread) raved about! After my Gobble box delivered, I, naturally, was served a Facebook ad about Gobble with a promise of 15-minute meals. This recipe card for Honey Harissa Shrimp didn’t specifically say it would take me 15 minutes to make, but I timed it nonetheless (also I had about a ~45 minute window before my next meeting to cook and then eat). I was able to whip up this meal like a fire was lit underneath me (again, my schedule; plus I was on the verge of hanger) and clean up after myself on the way. The packing of individual ingredients were easy to open (not always the case with meal kits!) and there was plenty of the marinade left to drizzle over my plated lunch. I rarely have dressing/sauces/condiments left over in meal kits because I like my food *really* saucy. So this was a wonderful little side benefit! Did I mention that this was my first time marinating shrimp? And this was probably only my third time actually even cooking shrimp! It also made two generous servings of lunch, even though my mom had mentally prepared to have to maybe fix herself something else for lunch. Out of other meal kits I’ve tried, I’ve definitely been left with meager portions (guilty parties rhyme with Stew Bacon). So score one for Gobble in comparison to basically other meal kit I've tried." —Elizabeth Lilly

    Promising review: "I do not claim to understand the science behind this tiny miracles, but they have changed my life. I spent my workday looking forward to going home and putting one of these bad boys on my newly erupted Mt. Zit and the overnight results were shocking. Not only is it grossly satisfying, but it saved me several days of walking around with a bloody crater in my face because my previous method of dealing with unsightly blemishes was to pick pick pick." —Adg

    41. A handmade soap dish designed to drain excess water directly into the sink. That means no mess, no stress.

    KimHauCeramics / Etsy

    Promising review: "I just received my well-packed soap dishes, [I purchased three] and I am SO pleased! All three colors, [white, brown, and black] are wonderful, and I not only am using them in my bathrooms, but in the kitchen to hold my sponges. I have long hated my soaps and sponges sitting in water in the non-draining dishes, and these drain right into the sink / shower! I am so excited NOT to have unsightly gooey soap anymore." —Heidi

    Get it from KimHauCeramics on Etsy for $40 (available in four colors).

    42. A collapsible treadmill with a handrail and Bluetooth speakers. If you work from home, this'll ensure you can fit in a quick workout during lunch break. Plus, even on bad weather days, you'll be able to go for a walk without stepping foot outside.

    Genevieve Scarano/BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I find both walking and jogging on the Treadly 2 Pro so easy and enjoyable. Having this treadmill is great, because I can exercise without having to go outside (I live in upstate NY where it's really cold outside) or move furniture around my apartment. It doesn't even matter that it "only" goes up to a jogging speed, I *still* feel sweaty after spending time on it.My fitness routine involves a mix of cardio, strength training, and flexibility workouts. I use the Treadly 2 Pro about three to four times a week, mostly for jogging and occasionally for walking. Jogging on the Treadly 2 Pro definitely gets my heart rate up: I have so much fun changing up the speed and also working on a steady pace. (See me on the left in full jogging mode.) After 35 to 40 minutes is up, I feel a little tired, but in a good way. I don't enjoy power walking, but the Treadly 2 Pro changed my perspective on it: When I don't feel like doing a heavy workout, it's so nice to de-stress with brisk movement. Plus, I can watch my favorite TV shows (like Bridgerton ) while I walk, walk, and walk some more." —Genevieve Scarano

    43. A Dozen Cousins Variety six-pack of ready-to-eat beans, protein in a pouch is the perfect addition to any meal. It doesn't need to be refrigerated, it's seasoned with flavorful spices and veggies, and is 100% plant based.


    They offer a variety of flavors including Cuban black beans, Trini chickpea curry, refried beans, refried black beans, and Creole red beans.

    Promising review: "Who writes a review about beans? Somebody who loves beans but had given up on them, until now. This is a great product. Canned beans from my local supermarket are always a disappointment so I stopped getting them. I don't have time to cook beans myself but A Dozen Cousins beans are fresh and taste terrific. I am trying to eat healthier and these are a great way to do that. I've been trying to avoid packaged, processed foods but the natural ingredients make these different. I can feel good about eating them. The beans are whole and not mashed up like in cans. All of the varieties are seasoned well and versatile. I've had them on their own, in salads and in wrap sandwiches. I'm really happy to have found these and hope they continue to add new flavors and products. Do yourself a favor and order some. You won't regret it." —Amazon Customer
