    Say hello to your new BFF, the touchless vacuum.

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 no- or low-sugar carbonated mixer you can use in place of soda when shaking up your next cocktail. Even if alcohol isn't your thing, these babies can be enjoyed straight up as they're made with real juice and natural botanicals and come in yummy flavors like yuzu and lime, jalapeño and blood orange, and pomegranate and hibiscus.

    five cans of the mixer in different flavors
    Avec

    Avec is a Brooklyn-based brand from friends and co-founders Alex Doman and Denetrias “Dee” CharlemagneIf. If you're not sure where to start, they have plenty of recommendations for which alcohols to mix with!

    Promising review: "Why spend hours mixing ingredients when you can get super flavor in one can. AVEC has put so many flavors into each can! You cannot go wrong with any flavors they proved. Just get some!" —Bruce C.

    Get a 12-pack from Avec for $36 (available in five flavors).

    2. A Thaw Claw for those times when mom asked you to take the chicken out of the freezer hours ago but you were so sucked into Sims 4 (recreating your neighborhood, naturally), that you totally forgot.

    amazon.com

    The gadget not only keeps your meat submerged, but the manufacturer says it also thaws it seven times faster than other methods!

    Promising review: "I am a stickler for properly defrosting meat after working in food service for years and this makes that process super easy and surprisingly quick! I've even convinced my father — a retired rocket scientist — that this is the best way to defrost." —Sarah

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95 (available in three colors).

    3. A canvas cup holder made to cuddle your iced coffee on your walk back from Starbucks. If you drink iced bevvies year-round (sorry, but it's the only way to go), it'll keep your fingers from freezing.

    Dreamy Daisy / Etsy

    Dreamy Daisy is a small accessory shop based out of Washington, D.C. Check them out for handmade canvas backpacks, spa headbands, scrunchies, and more.

    Promising review: "The product is super cute and fits cups perfectly!!! I bought this for my coworkers and now I need to order one for myself." —Wendy

    Get it from Dreamy Daisy on Etsy for $14.99+ (available in four colors and sold individually or in sets of two, three, or four).

    4. A subtle, Bluetooth-compatible safety bracelet that will give you peace of mind no matter where you are or what time it is. Plus, it just looks like a normal ol' cuff.

    Flare

    Flare is a woman-founded brand from Sara de Zarraga and Quinn Fitzgerald. The two met at Harvard Business School and are very open about Flare having been inspired by their surviving sexual assault. In emergency situations, the innovative cuff can send a text (like the one above), receive a fake call, and even send your GPS location to 911. Depending on how often it's used, the bracelet's battery can last up to two years.

    Promising review: "I am so impressed!! The phone call options are so natural and believable, and the ability to customize the name of both the Flare 'caller' and 'texter' is ingenious. I did a couple test calls and texts, and they worked perfectly. Thanks again for all the time, effort, and thought that obviously went into the creation of this beautiful safety piece. I am so impressed!!" —Alexandra

    Get it from Flare for $129 (available in three finishes).

    5. A magnetic sunglasses holder you can attach right to your belt or any bag that doesn't have a safe spot for you to store them.

    Alpaka

    Alpaka is a small outdoor brand that donates 1% of their revenue to environmental causes and non-profits. If you're in need of a bag, too, for every one sold, they plant a tree.

    Promising review: "It has been great having the Alpaka sunglasses case. I wear glasses full time so having a holder with my sunglasses handy is very important to me. The ability to attach the holder to my belt or a jacket has become my norm. I used to forget my sunglasses before, now they are always with me. This has been my best purchase in a long time." —Michael N.

    Get it from Alpaka for $25 (originally $35).

    6. A French press tumbler for the caffeine aficionado who's always running behind. With this insulated mug, you can brew your coffee or tea right from the car, office, or even Target parking lot.

    the two-piece silver tumbler and black lid
    Amazon

    The portable coffee maker is super simple to use. Just add ground coffee and hot water to the outer tumbler, wait three minutes, and then insert the inner press and push down like you would a normal French press. A built-in micro filter traps your grounds at the bottom of the cup so you won't suck up any bitter bits.

    Promising review: "I was given this mug as a gift and I use it daily. It's the best thing since sliced bread. It's easy to use, cleans up in a second, is well insulated, and makes a great cup of coffee (actually two cups). I recently returned from an extended stay in Guatemala. My favorite things I had while there were my hiking boots and this press. Every morning fresh brewed Guatemalan coffee. Buy this for yourself, and as gifts. Yours friends will love you forever no matter what you do to them in the future :)" —U Know Who

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in four colors).

    7. A stacking planter with a hidden built-in saucer that catches excess water. The ingenious design eliminates the need for plastic saucers and cork pads which — while not the end of the world — can clash with decor.

    2Modern

    Get it from 2Modern for $72+ (available in two sizes and colors).

    8. A pair of leak-proof period leggings so you don't have to worry about stains or rogue pads whether you're working out or perfecting your couch potato form.

    Ruby Love

    Ruby Love is a Black woman-founded apparel company from Crystal Etienne. All of the brand's bodysuits, underwear, leggings, and sleep shorts feature patent-pending technology that protects against leaks and stains. Their leggings can be worn with or without a pad as they can collect up to 2.5 tampons' worth of your flow.

    Get them from Ruby Love for $49.99 (available in sizes XS–3XL and Juniors).

    9. A spinning makeup brush cleaner to eliminate caked on foundation, bronzer, and blush with très minimal effort. Plus, it's a bit like a science experiment, and who doesn't like that?

    amazon.com

    What's included: one brush spinner brush, two spindles, one spinner bowl, one splash guard ring, eight flexible brush collars, and one collar stand.

    I have one of these and my brushes have seriously never been cleaner. All you have to do is fill the bowl halfway with water and brush cleanser, attach your brush to whichever collar fits, dip it into the water, and turn the spinner on. I found there's a *bit* of a learning curve to using it (you have to hover your brush right at the top of the water and not fully submerge it), but once you get the hang of it, it's actually pretty fun. The best part, imo, is that you can spin your brushes almost completely dry! When I used to wash them by hand, I typically had to let them dry overnight before I could use them again but now they're ready to go in less than an hour.

    PS: You can use whatever cleanser you like, but I've had really good luck with e.l.f.'s Brush Shampoo (and it doesn't hurt that it's super affordable).

    Promising review: "I had a stack of makeup brushes I hadn’t cleaned in a while because it takes FOREVER to wash them by hand. So, I ordered this hoping it would live up to the hype. It does! I was able to clean most of my brushes with the handle attachments and got them all done in about 40 minutes, whereas it has taken me over an hour in the past. Of course, the 40 minutes includes a learning curve, so it should take even less time next time. Doesn’t require a lot of water (unless you like cleaning up messes, it will spill out if too much is added) or brush cleaner. Brushes came out perfectly clean and ready for use. Great price for the time and manual labor saved!" —L S Brown

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99.

    10. A touchless vacuum you can sweep debris right into. No more song and dance with your dust pan trying to brush up every last speck of dust.

    Target

    Promising review: "Received as a wedding gift and LOVE this thing! If the marriage doesn't work out, I'm keeping this item for sure. Had no idea I even needed this until it was plugged in and started using it. Would definitely recommend." —Shaun

    Get it from Target for $99 (available in three colors).

    11. A set of makeup spatulas because you spent $40 on that color-matching foundation and you'll be damned if even one drop goes to waste — especially in this economy.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Thrilled with this affordable tool. At first glance, I was worried the small spatula wouldn’t be small enough to fit into my Burt's Bees Day Lotion bottle opening, but I was pleasantly surprised when I was able to easily slip it through and scrape the sides of the bottle. I wonder why I have never thought to get this? All this time I have been living in ignorance, believing that the last bits of my precious face cream were a lost cause. This mildly life changing product is totally worth it!" —AmazonGirl777

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $6.99 (available in three colors).

    12. An onion holder so you can dice away without any fear of losing a digit. Yes, I've watched Gordon Ramsay YouTube explainers on how to do it without, but there's just a disconnect between my head and my hand.

    Newness Focus on Stainless Steel

    Promising review: "I dice almost all my onions, so I'm exposed to open onion (and the tear inducing gasses) every time I have to switch angles for a different cut. Then the onion starts falling apart on me so I have to use more of my hand on the onion and cut at a weird angle while not chopping off my thumb! This thing solves all that. I can get all three angles without moving my hand and without the onion falling apart. This minimizes the time I have with exposed gasses which means no crying! (OK, maybe not NO crying. Some of these dang onions are noxious! But definitely minimal crying.)" —Ashley Cleveland

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    13. A pair of pedicure socks guaranteed to keep your feet nice and toasty while you go to town on your toes with clippers, cuticle cutters, and files.

    a model wearing the black socks which say "blessed"
    Amazon

    Promising review: "They may look a little silly, but they're OH SO USEFUL! Love them so much, I have bought pairs for all my girlfriends. They are comfortable (nothing between toes) and machine washable. Apply all your gooey lotions and creams during your pedicure, then put on your Pedi Sox to paint your toes. Your feet stay protected and warm while your polish dries. Lots of colors and styles available, but the leopard pair is just TOO CUTE!" —Suzanne M. Gundlach

    Get them from Amazon for $6+ (available in 13 patterns).

    14. A bottle-emptying kit so you can use every. last. drop. of your shampoo/dish soap/Mike's Hot Honey without having to repeatedly smack it against your hand like a Heinz bottle. (Let's add that to the list of things that shouldn't be embarrassing but is objectively embarrassing, huh?)

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    The kit comes with small, medium, large, and extra-large attachments so you should be able to use it with any bottle in your house.

    Promising review: "I will never fight with a pump bottle again. As soon as it gets difficult to pump anything out of any bottle, I will waste no time in 'flipping it.' I'm so glad someone created this. Upside-down bottles are such a small annoyance in life, but this simple solution really means a lot. 100% worth the price." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in packs of two and six).

    15. A waterproof paper flower vase you can wrap around whatever Mason jar you have your blooms in. If you don't have room for a bunch of glass vases or ~if you're being honest with yourself,~ you're just a little too clumsy to be trusted with them, this is a v cute alternative.

    Uncommon Goods

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $24 (available in two styles).

    16. An under-cabinet jar opener because there is nothing more aggravating than trying to open a jar for 20 minutes, asking your friend to do it, and having to listen to them gloat about how easy it was.

    Amazon

    Since the unit has a V-grip, it can be used for jars of all sizes and even hard-to-open medicine bottles. Plus, it comes with industrial-strength so you can peel and stick it right into place if you don't want to screw it into your cabinet.

    Promising review: "The opener is thin enough that when installed under a cabinet you don't see it (unless you bend down, of course). Really easy to install... all screws included and none of the screws poked through into the inside of the cabinet. First jar I tried, a large pickle jar, was so easy to open I didn't realize it had already opened it until a drop of liquid hit my finger... lol. Definitely recommend this product!" —Dagmar Spencer

    Get it from Amazon for $13.95.

    17. An itty bitty face mask rack where you can hang your freshly washed accessory du jour. Turns out putting them in a designated place (and not the bottom of whatever tote bag you used yesterday) also makes them easier to find!

    the black rack which has six hooks
    Uncommon Goods

    The compact rack can hold six masks and it's small enough to be placed just about anywhere.

    Promising review: "I love that something as small as the corner of my desk can now be used to hang dry my masks." —Miranda

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $20.

    18. A pair of pizza scissors so you can cut the best slice (you know — the one with the bubble on the crust) before your roommates/siblings get to it first.

    the red scissors cutting a slice of pizza
    Amazon

    Promising review: "This review is dedicated to all the haters in my life who questioned why I wanted this for my birthday. I love pizza whether its frozen, fresh, or delivery, and replacing the pizza wheel/knife with this pair of pizza scissors has cut all of the frustration out of pizza. Dividing up slices has never been easier. It is insane how happy I feel every time I use these scissors because not only do they make pizza dividing easier, they are also just fun to use. Even if you only cook a pizza twice a year, I still say buy these scissors. You'll never go back to the wheel or knife. These scissors are my FAVORITE product in the kitchen. I've been using them for six months now and I've had no problems so far with them. They are super easy to use thanks to the spring that keeps them open. The flat bottom below helps get the scissors under the pizza, too. It's all around a fantastic product." —Lisa

    Get them from Amazon for $29.95 (available in two colors).

    19. A two-pack of handheld bag sealers you can use to cut and seal a variety of snack bags so your treats don't go stale. (I personally can't not finish an entire bag of Jax Cheese Curls in one sitting, so I don't need this, but power to those who have the strength to save some!)

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    The portable sealers heat up on contact so there's no downtime before use. They also come with batteries so you can use them right away!

    Promising review: "I couldn't wait to see if these really worked. As soon as I received them I went to work sealing bags of opened chip bags. They worked! No more stale chips. They have a built in magnet, so I can keep them handy on the fridge. I am really impressed with them. No waiting time, no buttons to mess with. Just slide the protective cover away to expose the roller and run it across what you want to seal. Easy!" —Monica

    Get them from Amazon for $20.97.

    20. A necklace layering clasp that will eliminate your need for 20 extra minutes every morning just to sort out your accessories. With the Necklet, you just attach your three necklaces of choice, and then let the magnetic clasp work it's magic. Plus, you don't have to worry about tangles!

    amazon.com

    Necklet was founded by Ricki Hansen, a digital marketer based in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The company is now run by Hansen and her sister Stacie, a fashion blogger and graphic designer, and is part of Amazon's Launchpad program.

    Promising review: "I’ve tried the off-brand cheap ones and I can honestly say this is so worth the price. I wear multiple necklaces all the time, some very heavy necklaces at that and the cheap ones were causing the magnets to separate and fall off my neck. This one is by far the best! The design is smart and foolproof. The magnet is VERY strong, much stronger than the cheap replicas. There’s even a little click mechanism that secures the magnet in place. I’m sold and definitely happy I splurged for this over the cheap ones.... beyond worth the price."Cecelia

    Get it from Amazon for $42.

    21. A 360-degree rotating nail clipper so you can trim your nails and toenails without having to perform any Cirque du Soleil-like contortions.

    Amazon

    The lightweight, ergonomic clippers are especially helpful if you have arthritis or limited mobility/flexibility.

    Promising review: "These clippers are a lifesaver for me. It's nearly impossible for me to reach around my toes with a regular clipper to trim my toenails. Being able to turn the clipper part sideways makes it possible for me to get a clean cut and see what I'm doing. I'm right handed but you can turn it to either side if you're left handed. I am so glad I ordered this!" —Anonymous Reader

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    22. A BedJet cooling and warming system which makes it possible to regulate your nighttime temperature so you can stop waking up in a pool of sweat.

    Amazon

    The futuristic gadget (which works on beds of all sizes) is outfitted with biorhythm sleep technology. Basically, that's just a fancy way of saying it's programmed to change the temperature each hour of the night to help you sleep better. You can also set the temperature to whatever degree you'd like by using the accompanying remote. If you're a cold sleeper, you can also set it to heat mode and it'll warm you up 15 times faster than a regular ol' blanket! Just plug the small unit into an outlet, slip the vacuum-like tube under your sheets, set your preferred temperature and you're good to go. Since there are no wires or anything like that, it also won't affect the coziness of your mattress.

    Promising review: "First time I have ever been moved to write a review on Amazon but this is the single most amazing product if you sleep hot! This thing WORKS and it is saving my life! It only took a NASA engineer to solve my propensity to burst into to flames every night at 2 a.m.!" —Matthes

    Get it from Amazon for $399+ (available in two sizes).

    23. A two-in-one Bluetooth transmitter and receiver so you can connect your wireless headphones to the TV when your roommate asks you to turn down Love Island for the eighth time.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    The dual device can also connect your headphones to airplane TVs, your surround sound system, your Switch, your old iPod Shuffle, and more. The built-in battery lasts for up to 10 hours, then after that you just plug it in to juice it up.

    Promising review: "This little guy is awesome. My fiancé and I can’t do without it when we are traveling — we use it to connect two sets of Bluetooth headphones to the same device to watch movies or TV together. There’s a great video tutorial online for how to connect two devices that don’t have an interface to actually select the transmitter for pairing, which helped us a lot because it’s a little tricky. Once you connect the first time it’s almost automatic though. I’ve also used it to get Bluetooth audio in my car, and to transmit from a record player to a Bluetooth speaker. The uses are endless and this little box has become invaluable for us!" —Rebecca Ziegler

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    24. A night light outlet cover so you can immediately tell that there's no intruder in your bathroom. You may be nearly 30, but with the amount of true crime podcasts you listen to, it's never been more necessary.

    a reviewer's photo of the outlet cover in their bathroom
    amazon.com

    The outlet cover snaps right on so you don't have to worry about extra electrical work or tools. It also automatically turns on and off depending on how dark your space is, so you don't have to remember to do it yourself.

    Promising review: "These are fantastic! They provide a nice muted, downcast light. We use them on our upstairs landing, the stairwell, and in our kitchen. It's a nice way to ensure guests and kids know where they are at night without having to turn on overhead lights, and without having to use up a plug. Would definitely purchase again if we find we need more night-lights!" —Heather W

    Get it from Amazon for $17.96 (available in four colors).

    25. A portable facial humidifier you can use right before a Zoom meeting (or during — it's that quiet) to give your skin a nice lil' glow.

    Hey Dewy

    The 10.8-ounce humidifier can run for up to eight hours straight. Once it's time to recharge, just hook it up to your computer with the included USB cord.

    Hey Dewy was co-founded by Cindy Kang, a Korean-born entrepreneur who spent 15 years in dry, stale offices before dreaming up a portable cordless humidifier that could be used anywhere.

    Promising review: "Love my Hey Dewy humidifier. I put it on when I am working at my desk and it helps to keep my skin from drying out from the heat. It is easy to use and clean." —Anita C.

    Get it from Hey Dewy for $39 (available in three colors).

    26. A flat outlet plug that can be placed behind furniture or in other areas where you'd like to eliminate some cord clutter.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Very, very nice. I am a renter so putting a huge hole in the wall to hide my wires was not going to happen. After searching for something that could help with the look of the wires in my living room, I was glad to have come across this socket! I love it. I just installed it last night, I’m extremely happy with the look and the adhesive works really good. I highly recommend it :)" —Nlizr

    Get it from Amazon for $23.95+ (available in five different lengths/configurations).

    27. A dress weight so you can avoid a Marilyn Monroe moment when a gust of wind tries to take your skirt for a spin. I've lived in NYC long enough to have had this experience (damn you giant SoHo grates!) and let me say I desperately wish I had these on hand.

    Etsy

    The adhesive weights come in a pack of four and each weighs 0.5 ounces or — what Etsy seller Christina, of DressStrong, equates them to — 13 jelly beans. To use, just peel the label from the weight and stick it the hem of your dress or skirt. When you're done for the day, you simply peel it off and store it. When stored properly, you should get at least six uses out of each.

    Promising review: "Such a great product, kept my lightweight summer dress down during friend's outdoor wedding. They are the perfect weight — heavy enough to keep your skirt down when it's very windy, but not too heavy that they pull it in an awkward way. They're also absolutely invisible and stayed on the whole time. PS: Fast shipping and a cute handwritten note from a seller, just great." —Marina

    Get it from DressStrong on Etsy for $12+ (originally $15+; available in individual or bulk quantities).

    28. A magnetic stove shelf on which you can stack your go-to spices, oils, and kitschy salt and pepper shakers. This will also prevent any food from getting back there if you seemingly can't boil a pot of pasta without flinging penne everywhere.

    A reviewer's photo of the black shelf holding various pantry items like soy sauce and tabasco
    amazon.com

    The shelf works with both flat and curved stoves. It doesn't require any adhesives or installation and the magnets can even be repositioned for a custom fit.

    Promising review: "The shelf installed in a snap. It has two sturdy magnets that hold it securely onto the slightly rounded back of my stove. I felt comfortable setting a full jar of honey on it, and I haven’t seen it move at all as I have been cooking. I have limited space in the kitchen, so I’m really happy to have an additional place to set things I need frequently. It doesn’t look like an add-on; it looks like part of the stove. I’m really happy with it!" —Sylvia J.

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in three sizes and four finishes).

    29. A set of waterproof eyeliner stamps for those who LOVE the look of winged liner, but can't help but shake like a leaf when attempting to paint them on. If you're anything like me, you always get one *perfect* eye and then seemingly forget how to use your hands when it comes to your second eye.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This set comes with two stamps — one for your right eye and one for your left. Once you apply the wing, flip the pen over to find a fine tip applicator so you can finish off your look.

    Promising review: "This thing is amaaaazing! I pretty much gave up on winged eyeliner because I just couldn’t get it right. Didn’t even know stamps existed and randomly came across this and it had good reviews so I gave it a chance. Got it in the mail and tried it right away and was sooo excited that I used the left stamp for both sides and it looked a little crooked. Then I remembered there’s a right and a left. Tried it again and it turned out beautifully. There’s just something about winged eyeliner that’s so fly. Ohhh and another thing. It’s pretty darn sturdy! I took a nap and caught myself rubbing my eye a little and thought 'dang I messed up my eyeliner' and when I got up and checked it was still in tact! It def lasts all day." —Chrissy

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97+ (available in three sizes).

    30. A mini ladybug vacuum ready to suck up eraser shavings and chip crumbs, because despite the fact that you're at home now and not in an office, the snacks are still flowing.

    A reviewer's photo of the ladybug vacuum which is roughly the size of a computer mouse
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This little ladybug does a heck of a lot more than I even expected. The suction power is remarkable given how small it is. Even better, it pulls all the crumbs out of the grooves on our new table. It was almost impossible to keep the grooves clean, and was a constant concern with this new table. This quiet little ladybug vacuum gets in there and cleans them up in one pass. Plus, it’s cute, and my cat somehow thinks it’s a toy for him. Way better than expected!" —Janet Evans

    Get it from Amazon for $10.98 (available in four colors/patterns).

    31. A pair of microfiber duster slippers which turn your midnight run to the fridge into a mini cleaning session. Whoops, did you spill a bit of milk while taking a bite of your cookie? No worries — just give it a lil' wipey wipe.

    The pink bunny slippers
    Amazon

    Promising review: "This must be the greatest idea since the discovery of fire! Two days in, and my hardwood is shining! And all with just walking around! Of course the quality is pedestrian (pardon), of course it doesn’t look like it was made by Versace, but that’s not the point, is it?" —Nigel

    Get them from Amazon for $12.99 (available in three sizes and 14 styles).

    32. A large cup holder, because whoever designed the built-in ones in your car didn't consider the fact that you exclusively drink from XL water bottles and trenta Starbucks cups.

    A large water bottle sitting in the cup holder
    amazon.com

    The insert has a tapered base that goes from 3.2 to 2.6 inches so it fits in most standard cup holders. It's suitable for cups and bottles 32 to 40 ounces.

    Promising review: "The console cupholders in the Chevy Colorado are ridiculously small. Good for a 12-oz paper cup and that's it. There is a thick rubbery liner within the cupholder area, and this Smart Kup slides in and grips nicely. Also, it goes in deep enough to be stable. With a full 40-oz insulated Hydro Flask in it, the holder doesn't move or tip over or pop out of the cup holder hole during sharp turns. The cup also keeps the Hydro Flask from falling out of the cup, because it sits deep enough." —Bartimus Max

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95 (available in two colors).

    33. A foldable cutting board that'll help you transfer chopped-up veggies to your pot or pan and save you from the torture that is having to sweep them up because your dog is decidedly not into carrots.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These are the most amazing cutting boards! It is so handy to be able to slice, dice, chop, and then fold it up and pour into a bowl. I love them and have them in three sizes!" —C. Whitten

    Get it from Amazon $11.67 (available in three sizes and five colors).

    34. And a bug bite suction tool because it's this or scratching at it until it bleeds and that is not the way, my friends.

    A model using the bug bite tool
    Amazon

    The Bug Bite Thing (of Shark Tank fame) works on bites from mosquitoes, bees, wasps, biting flies, no-see-ums, and more. Basically, the gadget sucks out insect venom and saliva — two things that lead to itchiness and irritation. With that out, your skin should stop swelling and be back to normal in no time!

    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 (available in two colors).
