    It's also been known to work for postoperative and chemotherapy-induced nausea. It applies pressure on your wrist to help ~restore balance~.

    Promising review: "I'm eight weeks pregnant and have had morning sickness nonstop every single day, and it has made my appetite go away so much that I feared for my baby's health. I needed a quick fix so I could eat again. It worked amazingly. I went to Denny's and ate my weight in pancakes! It feels so good not to feel nauseous all the time." —Amazon Customer

    2. A bottle of organic, cold-pressed castor oil with loads of fatty acids that'll nourish and hydrate your scalp thus encouraging healthy hair growth. For the best results, use it as a hair mask while you watch the new season of Survivor. (AKA use it for an hour at a time.)

    The clean formula can be used on your eyebrows and eyelashes, too! Apply one to two drops to a cotton swab and then gently brush through your hair to condition and nourish.

    Promising review: "I had an allergy in my scalp 10 months ago that made the back of my head bald. I was really desperate to try a hair-growing product to bring my hair back. I read online and found out castor oil is one of the greatest products for hair growth, but there are lots of castor oil brands. I tried this product because of the good reviews and ingredients because my scalp was really sensitive. My hair became softer than before and thicker, and one bottle of this castor oil lasted almost a year!" —Amazon Customer

    Katy Herman / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "Is this science? Witchcraft? Who cares! I have no earthly idea why this works, but it brought me back from the dead after an 11-day headache. I found it worked better if I covered my hot pack in this, zapped it in the microwave, and wrapped it around the base of my neck. The aromatherapy was great, and it dulled my headache enough to restore my will to live." —Katie P.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    the green bottle of pain relieving gel

    Promising review: “Biofreeze is a great product for aches and pains. My massage therapist recommended it years ago and I've been a dedicated customer ever since. Anytime I'm tense or have a knot in my neck or back I use it. It really helps to relax the area and allows me to work out the problem areas. My husband uses it for chronic back pain to cool the area and help him stretch out his back better.” —Sara F

    7. A set of foam earplugs sure to block out whatever nighttime noises plague you, be it honking traffic, boisterous neighbors, or your partner's snoring.,

    Promising review: "I purchased these earplugs because I suffer from something called annoying neighbors syndrome. I would liken the sounds coming from below and across from my apartment to that of an auto shop or a construction site, perhaps even an airplane hangar. It's particularly horrendous in the evening. Therefore, I have resulted to earplugs to ensure I get a somewhat worthwhile night of sleep. The contour capabilities of these earplugs make them incredibly comfortable to wear. After inserting the earplugs and allowing them to adjust, silence befell my bedroom. I was able to sleep free from the obnoxious noises that surround my apartment. These will be the only earplugs I wear from now on." —Emily Buss

    Promising review: "I have been using this rose water for about three weeks now. I am in shock! The redness in my face is gone! I used to put on foundation almost every day because of my redness and acne scars. I now go out of the house with zero makeup on and feel confident in doing so. My face is super soft! My husband actually thought I was wearing makeup because my face was so clear. I'm so happy I took the leap and bought it!" —crystal

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95+ (available in two sizes).

    9. A pack of extra-thick hair ties made for those with luscious locks that refuse to be contained! The no-slip ponytails are guaranteed to maintain their elasticity and won't snag so you don't have to worry about headaches or pulling out chunks of hair, either.

    a reviewer holding the bottle of anti-itch gel

    It'll deliver a ~cooling sensation~ so you can eliminate itching from bug bites, scrapes, burns, and cuts.

    Promising review: "I was skeptical that this would offer more relief than the hydrocortisone creams, but for me it actually does. I am severely sensitive to mosquito bites and I live in a cabin in the woods in a remote area, so having something that provides relief means a lot to me! Hooray for Benadryl! I like that it's a gel and it really doesn't smell much at all, which is nice!" —Barbara L. Isbell

    Get it from Amazon for $5.42.

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

    This compact, easy-to-carry tool works on all kinds of pesky bites: mosquitoes, bees, wasps, biting flies, and more.

    Promising review: "Them darn skeeters love me. Although this gadget doesn't deter me from being bitten, I can now at least have some relief by suctioning out their nastiness. The itchiness was gone instantly and the swelling went down. I even scratched the area I was bit and there was no itchy sensation. I used the small end since it was just a mosquito bite and it worked really well. I only bought one to test and now I will get a few more to have around." —RockMyZendotcom

    Get one from Amazon for $9.95 (available in three colors).

    12. A set of squishy eggs you can squeeze with all of your might when you're having one of those days when EVERYTHING annoys you. Ofc they also help alleviate joint pain but that seems like a secondary benefit, no?

    reviewer photo showing a yellow, red, and blue squishy egg

    Promising review: "I work at a desk about 11–12 hours a day with TONS of typing. Since using these, I've noticed less pain and strain in my wrists and hands, and they are also a great stress reliever. I've gotten people at my office hooked. I think they're totally worth the price." —Petite Loeb

    13. A peppermint foot spray designed to eliminate the special funk that emanates from that pair of Converse you've had since middle school. Spray the essential-oil mix into your shoes and even right on your feet for extra deodorizing power.

    black bottle of peppermint foot spray next to its packaging

    Promising review: "This product is great. It's more effective than any foot powder or aerosol spray I've used (and I've used a lot of the big brands). It has a much milder and more pleasant scent so you don't gas yourself applying it, or trail around a strong scent that makes it obvious you were using a foot spray/powder for several hours after application. For busy feet (like working out and hiking), it seems to reduce calluses and blisters. For anyone interested, it also softens and exfoliates the skin. It does not seem to stain socks or shoes and washes out easily." —J. Boutilier

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97.

    14. An affordable electric toothbrush that'll give you a straight-from-the-dentist clean by removing plaque along your gumline so you don't have to schedule any extra appointments down the line.


    This electric toothbrush may sport a cheaper price tag than most but that doesn't mean it skimps on features. Its bristles are optimally angled at 16 degrees so they surround your teeth while it oscillates, rotates, and pulsates to eliminate plaque. It also has a pressure sensor that stops the brush from pulsating if it can tell you're pressing down too hard. Lastly, there's a built-in timer so your cleaning always hit two minutes.

    Promising review: "What a great relief from manual tooth brushing. I usually never like electric toothbrushes, but this one leaves my teeth feeling smooth and clean. It also has great features [like a pressure sensor] so it knows when you press too hard on your teeth and provides an enjoyable vibration to the gumline!" —Sal Paradise

    Get it from Amazon for $39.97.

    15. A trusty stick of Megababe's Thigh Rescue because enjoying the breeze for a few hours in a pair of shorts or a skirt — or even just a 30-minute ride on your Peleton, like the reviewer mentions below — shouldn't result in a days-long angry red rash.

    the anti-friction stick which is the size and shape of a deordant

    Megababe is a woman-owned small business from entrepreneur, body acceptance advocate, and influencer Katie Sturino. 

    Promising reviews: "Thigh Rescue saved my life! As a curvy girl, chafing was something I just accepted. I would wear Spandex shorts under dresses and avoid wearing shorts at all costs! Once I started using thigh rescue my life changed! It is amazing and makes a world of a difference! I love it so much!" —Meghan Blaisdell

    "This saves me when I use my Peleton! Turns out spinning is way less painful when your thighs aren't on fire. It's a MUST for all my workouts!" —Cara

    Get it from Megababe for $14

    Bandelettes is a woman-owned small business from friends Julia Abasova and Rena Abramoff.

    Promising review: "These are the best thing to happen to my big thighs. They have generous silicone anti-slip around the top and bottom on the inside. They keep my thighs from rubbing and chafing in shorts or dresses AND they’re pretty!" —Lizzy S.

    Get them from Amazon for $18.87+ (available in sizes S–3X and 17 colors).

    17. A Squatty Potty designed to unkink your colon and help ya go, you know? In its seven-plus years of existence, the product has racked up more than 33K 5-star reviews from pleased poopers.,

    Promising review: "Perfect conditions for first time with the Squatty Potty. After a weekend of white cheese dip heaven at the local Mexican restaurant, I knew I would be paying the consequences. Yep, you guessed it, hemorrhoid hell. Enter the Squatty Potty. I was excited I got this for my pregnant wife and couldn’t wait to be the first to give it a go. I got in the potty, raised my feet, and literally the poo just slid right out out my body with minimal straining. This device is a game changer. It will save me over the year cause I won’t need hemorrhoid ointment. This would have saved Elvis’s life!! If Elvis had a Squatty Potty he would be with us today. Thank you, Squatty Potty." —UTGrad

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    18. A Noto face and neck serum with a laundry list of nutrient-dense natural ingredients including marula, rosehip seed, and wild carrot. Together they not only hydrate and nourish skin, but also encourage acne to heal via cell rejuvenation.

    19. A reusable ice pack that can be refrozen ~thousands~ of times and slapped on anywhere you're experiencing aches and pains.

    the reusable ice pack which comes in a protective case

    The pack stays cool for eight hours and comes with a cover that protects your skin. 

    Promising review: "This item is awesome. I recently had back surgery and needed an ice pack. What I loved about this product: 1) stayed cold more than five-plus hours; 2) came with a cover (like a pillowcase) to protect the skin and no extra towel needed; 3) Velcro wrap — to keep the pack in place. I am not sure why people are saying it’s not cold; my skin will be red and cold to the touch after having it on for a few hours. (Fell asleep with it on) I have used it on my back and my foot (love how I can Velcro it so it does not move) highly recommended this item." —DarlaMae

    Get it from Target for $14.99.

    20. A pack of clinical-strength SweatBlock wipes capable of stopping hyperhidrosis, nervous sweating, and hormonal sweating right in its tracks. Give your pits a good swipe down before bed and you *won't* wake up in a puddle of your own perspiration!

    Promising review: "For anyone who might be skeptical, please allow me to put you at ease. If you have hyperhidrosis, meaning it can be 9 degrees outside and you're still sweating under your arms, this product has the potential to change your life. I would sweat THROUGH a sport coat before noon. Enter the Sweat Block product. I've had it for three weeks and it is life changing. I DO NOT sweat under my arms anymore. I'm still on the original box that I bought three weeks ago. I had to write a review after I was cleaning the garage today in 85-degree heat. I was sweating through my shirt on my back — BUT NOT MY UNDERARMS. It is amazing!" —Frosty McGee

    21. A pair of compression socks that — while not the most fashion-forward garment — will help with circulation so you can comfortably complete that international flight or half-marathon that's been looming on your calendar.,

    Promising review: "I highly recommend these. I am currently 8 months pregnant and wear these beauties every single day. I never knew how painful the swelling in my legs and feet could be until recently, but these socks were a complete game changer. I stand for over nine hours a day at work, so I can't begin to explain how badly my legs and feet ached. I have a picture of what my feet looked like with (right, shown above) and without using the socks (left, shown above). The difference is tremendous!!" —Olivia Stockdell

    Get them from Amazon for $14.50+ (available in sizes S/M–L/XL and 11 colors).

    Promising review: "My ears are a bit small and using the AirPods for long periods of time starts to become painful. These are perfect because they allow me to wear the pods loosely (not shoved all the way in the ear) and still have great sound. They also help to keep the pods in my ear and not fall out. I highly recommend them for those who have had pain issues with the AirPods." —Christy A.

    Get a pack of three pairs from Amazon for $9.99 (available in sizes S and L and in two colors).

    24. A jar of O'Keeffe's hand cream ready to swoop in and save your mitts after 20+ Purell applications. Keeping 'em clean is of the utmost importance, but if you already suffer from dry skin, hand sanitizer probs has you in a world of hurt.

    Promising review: "I have a skin condition (related to eczema or psoriasis) on my hands that causes blisters, dryness, and cracking, especially during the winter. I used to scald my hands with hot water to get relief from the itching. I also used to keep bandages with me wherever I want to cover the bleeding cracks. The only things that has brought my condition under control are refraining from all caffeine and alcohol, limiting spicy food intake, and using O'Keeffe's after showering or washing my hands. It took about 30 years for me to realize these things and I'm glad I finally am able to manage my skin condition. O'Keefe's has a protective barrier and works its way deep into the tissue to get at those thick calloused areas on my knuckles. I keep O'Keefe's with me wherever I go and it's provided me with relief far better than anything else I've tried over or under the counter." —SoulRaker

    Get it from Amazon for $6.98.

    25. A pack of oil-absorbing tissues you can use in between Zoom meetings to erase any excess oil that's made itself at home on/around your T-zone.

    Promising review: "I've had oily skin my whole life and have used countless types of oils blotting sheets because they're life savers. THESE ARE AMAZING. They're a great deal, big sheets, and they pull out one at a time so easily. I'll never go back to other brands. Give these a try — they're completely worth it. They work well and are easy to use. I have no negative things to say at all." —Kelsey

    Get a pack of 200 from Amazon for $11.35.

    26. A nonslip mouse pad made to elevate your wrists and keep 'em in an ergonomic position while you click and clack away at a keyboard responding to work emails and — more importantly — sending memes to your friends on Slack.


    Promising review: "This pad is gorgeous, with beautiful colors, and lays perfectly. I bought this specifically because of the pad for my wrist. I had developed carpal tunnel, but after a day of using this my wrist is much better. I'd definitely buy this again — nice quality." —Lainey

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in 25 patterns).

    27. A set of five soft silicone eyeglass sleeves so your frames don't pinch your temples while you're deep in concentration mode (aka playing Fruit Ninja like it's still 2010).

    Promising review: "Finally the solution to my issues. My eyeglasses would always dig into the back of my ear on one side, not to mention they would slip down my nose from time to time. I tried a different pair of guards and they just did not do the job. I purchased these and what a difference; my glasses have never fit better, and oftentimes I forget to take them off because they're so comfortable. Best purchase decision EVER." —Andrea Lincoln

    Get a pack of five from Amazon for $6.99 (available in three colors).

    28. A foot file if you're sick of your cracked heels catching on your sheets while you try to fall asleep. Just typing that makes me cringeeeee.

    Promising review: "OMG, these should be standard issue to every human. I’ve bought them all — the cheap foot files and the expensive ones. None of them remotely compare to this one. I thought I was doomed to have course heels forever, but no more! With just one use, my heels are fabulous! The calluses this thing removed were absolutely disgusting, but I couldn’t be happier. You won’t be disappointed!" —JMart

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    29. A pack of pimple patches ready to speedily pull the pus out of your most worrisome whiteheads. (Sorry that was a gross sentence, but it is what it is. 🤷‍♀️) Before you head to bed, just slap the dots right on any zits and they'll work their magic overnight.

    Promising review: "I just want to start by saying I’m normally pretty skeptical when buying any beauty product online, but this one actually works. I occasionally get hormonal acne around my chin that is red and inflamed, so I put a patch on and wore it all day. When I took it off this evening I was surprised to see that the inflammation was nearly all gone, and not to mention the patch helped me from picking at it all day. The patch also blends in very well with my medium skin tone." —PJ

    Promising review: "I've noticed bunions developing in the past month and the pain is becoming more intolerable. I put these on for the first time after wearing heels all day. My bunions were driving me crazy. Within just a few minutes of wearing them, I knew I had found an answer. I was able to wear them in my tennis shoes during my workout with no issues. I don't want to take them off! While there is nothing sexy about how they look, there is also nothing sexy about a bunion. I'll choose to wear them and have happy feet." —R Harlow

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in three colors).

    32. A physician-designed earwax remover if you've sworn off Q-tips ever since watching *that* episode of Girls but you still need something just as satisfying., Amazon

    The kit includes the washer bottle and three disposable tips. Using it is simple: Fill the bottle with your preferred ear-cleaning solution, attach the disposable tip, and then spray the cleaner into your ear. This will loosen up wax and cause it to basically just fall right out of your ear!

    Promising review: "I’ve suffered with wax buildup for the past few years and it became a routine to go to the doctor every three to five months to get my ears cleaned. It was a total hassle and the price of having to go to the doctor that frequently for such a small thing adds up. I finally bought this and I’m so glad I did. Now I clean my ears monthly with this product, and I no longer suffer with impacted ear wax. I can’t recommend this enough to anyone who deals with wax buildup, it may be gross but this really helps." —Lisa and Fiona

    33. An anti-fog spray guaranteed to bring glasses wearers to tears. Spray it on your lenses, give them a quick wipe, and experience the sorcery that is wearing a mask and still being able to see.,

    FYI: It's important to note that this spray is meant for non-antireflective-coated lenses only! If you have other lenses, it may not work. For best results, spray a bit on *both* sides of your lenses, use your fingers to rub it in (across the full surface of the lens), let it sit for a minute or so, then wipe with a soft, dry cloth.

    Promising review: "At the beginning of the pandemic I decided to get this wonderful product! We are a clinic that continually is dealing with treating COVID-19 patients and swabbing them out in their cars. Myself and our doctor were both so impressed with this product immediately. I referred several other healthcare coworkers to also buy this product to eliminate fog from our glasses and goggles. They too were impressed by the prompt arrival of this item and what a dream it is to use. My glasses remain crystal clear with no retouch during the day and no sensitivity to the product. Thank you so much!" —Ms. Stephanie

    34. An itsy-bitsy toenail brace if you regularly deal with ingrown toenails and are *so* over trips to the doc just to be told you need antibiotics. Apply this lil' guy and not only will it eliminate painful pressure within just a few days, but it'll completely straighten out your nail in a month or less!


    The kit comes with ten toenail braces and the materials needed to apply them. Each brace lasts three to six weeks so you don't even need to reapply them often.

    Promising review: "I never realized how curved and not OK my toenails were. I thought the pain I had was just normal and a fact of life. Only when I read about the Curve Correct product did I realize that I had a major problem that could be resolved! Now I'm on the way to normal, flat toenails that DON'T grow curved into my skin!" —Jamie H.

    Get the kit from Amazon for $44.99.

    35. A seat cushion because despite the junk in your trunk, sitting from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. is taking a serious toll on your tailbone. Give your tush some relief with this thiccc memory foam cushion.

    Promising review: "On a long and uncomfortable flight to Hawaii I managed to mess up my back and tailbone really bad. I even paid to have a professional massage done because seating was impossibly painful and I work either driving around all day or in my home office. Nothing seemed to help. That’s how I ended up here, looking for some relief. This thing is magical, like sitting on the back of a unicorn while coming down a rainbow. I sat down on it and all the pressure points were not giving me any issues, was able to drive out of state the next day NO PROBLEM. Outstanding quality, doesn’t just squish down when you sit on it. The one issue is, you’ll be pretty high up if you plan on using it in the car, but not a deal breaker compared to my coccyx not killing me and having shooting pain up my leg and back. BUY IT! The cover is also removable and washable." —Mrs. J

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95 (available in five colors).

    36. A bottle of plant-based cuticle oil if your nails have been hurting from months of missed manicures. The natural formula hydrates dry skin and strengthens your nails so you can work on growing them out, if that's something you've always dreamt of doing!,

    Promising review: "This product... There is so much I can say. I’ve used so many other cuticle oils, and they’ve only kept them oily and smooth for about two hours... This stuff not only smells like heaven, but it’s a HUGE bottle for the price, which was the first perk... Then I used It for my own manicures and OMG. My cuticles were still smooth the next day when I went to work. It not only softened them, but helped the dry skin on the areas that it got on. The smell is wonderful. I’ve been putting it on at night before bed, and it lasts ALL DAY the next day. About a week of use so far, and I’ve had at least two people ask me how my cuticles look like they do, and did I JUST get a manicure?! NOPE! It’s this stuff. I swear I would buy stock in it if I could." —Whitney Bryant

    Get it from Amazon for $11.21+ (available in two sizes and four scents).
