    45 Things Under $25 I'm Willing To Bet You'll Buy Without A Second Thought

    1. A set of claw-shaped hair clips for a cute way to keep your hair out of your face whether you're doing chores or going for a walk. Bonus: they'll keep even long, thick hair securely in place all day long.,

    Each set comes with four hair clips.

    Promising review: "These hair clips are amazing! They are cute and sturdy. I am able to fit all of my hair in the clip and go about my day without my hair falling down and having to reclip it. That is a first for me! I even did a quick workout and the jumping did not cause my hair clip to fall.

    2. A Schick Silk Touch-Up Tool that removes any peach fuzz on your skin so your foundation looks smoother. You can also use this for quick hair removal in between waxing appointments.,

    Promising review: "I love these! I used to get my brows and face waxed, then threaded, then plucked. I got frustrated with having to go somewhere every month and pay money to come out all red-faced and in pain. These are perfect. No pain and my brows always look great. It takes no time at all to sit down in front of a mirror and my skin is left feeling silky smooth. The hair doesn't grow back any more stubbly or different than it did when I waxed, threaded, or plucked. Just make sure your face isn't too dry when you start! Otherwise, you can irritate it." —mamalonghorn45

    They'll also prevent heels from getting caught in cracks in the sidewalk.

    Elizabeth Lilly, a BuzzFeed editor, put these to the test as a bridesmaid in a friend's wedding after writing about them in a ton of shopping stories. Here's what she had to say:

    "When my friend asked me to be a bridesmaid and I learned I'd be walking on grass for the ceremony, I got a bit worried. What's a klutz with a high center of gravity to do while trying not to 1) fall down in front of approximately 150 guests or 2) keel over while quietly stifling tears during her friends' vows? Buy some Heel Stoppers, that's what! I was able to easily slip them onto the glitter-encrusted heels (and later remove them with no damage to the heels).

    On the day of the ceremony, these sturdy pieces of plastic made the heels much easier to walk in and prevented me from aerating the lawn. My feet still hurt to high heavens because those gorgeous shoes don't have a lot of support for a seldom-stiletto-wearer like me. Out of all the dough I spent on my bridesmaid ensemble, these were the biggest bang for my buck!"

    7. A pair of no-drip cleansing cuffs that absorb all the water and soap when you're washing your face before it rolls down your arms and gets your shirt wet. Honestly, where has this been my whole life?!

    Promising review: "I’ve been using this mask for over a week now, and I must say that it’s the best mask I’ve ever used yet. I have used a sleep mask every night for...probably the last nine years, and it’s the most comfortable one I’ve ever used. I love the strap. No Velcro to get caught in your hair! It’s got adjustable wide elastic that is soft and comfortable. Not the stiff stuff! The mask has nice memory foam in it which cushions your face when sleeping on your side. It has nice deep eye pockets so there is never any pressure on your eyes or eyelashes, which I love. Overall, this is the best mask I’ve ever had. It’s made so well; I feel pampered in it." —DePlume

    Promising review: "The BEST basic tank! I have this in three colors (white, black, and a salmon/pink) and I’m reordering the white because I wear it so much! I usually wear a small or medium top, and I got the medium and it fits perfectly and makes the girls look amazing! The built in bra and pads are great so you can just throw this on with a pair of jeans, shorts or leggings for the warmer weather and go! I also wear it for working out and it keeps everything in place." —Amazon Customer

    One tray fits up to 24 pieces of cutlery.

    Promising review: "THE BEST silverware storage organizer compartments I’ve EVER had in my entire life! We have a large family and therefore have the need for a lot of silverware. Unfortunately we have a small shallow and narrow drawer in our house but it was always full! Constantly disorganized before, and now amazingly organized. The only reason I would hesitate would be if your drawer is not adequately deep, but from reading reviews people said if they had 3.5 inches of depth it would be just fine which is exactly what I have and there’s adequate drawer depth for me. I measured my skinny drawer and realized I still had space for two units and took the plunge and am so glad I did! Silverware goes quickly from the dishwasher straight into the drawer and you don’t have to stack perfectly to put a lot in!!! ADD IT TO YOUR CART NOW, you’ll be glad you did if you have the same problem as we did!" —oceantiff

    Promising review: "I have a super hyper 2-year-old lab that loves it. This is the only toy he has that hasn’t been destroyed. It’s held up when plastic toys, ropes, balls, and all the other toys couldn’t! I’m amazed at that. He leaves it indoors to play with. I put it in his kennel so that he can play and it keeps him company when he has to have a time out. Very well-made and if he does manage to tear it up I will definitely buy another. It’s lasted six months so far and anyone who knows a rowdy dog knows that is remarkable." –Larry

    Promising review: "This little face roller is AMAZING. I have combination/oily skin so using this as a refresher has been perfect. I even purchased one for my brother's girlfriend who has similar skin. It really does clear up the oil and make your face feel/look less oily. I used to carry around those face dab wipes that soak up the oil, but it can be so annoying using those/carrying them around." —Leighann Larsen

Looks sleek and cute on kitchen counter too. And I hate clutter. Love that you can click it on and it stays on until clicked off. You don’t have to hold down the button the whole time like others I’ve seen. Love this!" –ElizabethC.

    And it's silicone-free!

    Promising review: "I don’t usually do reviews on products, but for this one I absolutely have to. I have 3c type hair and struggle with a lot a breakage, unmanageability, and moisture. When my mom mentioned this product to me I didn’t take her seriously because of the simple fact that we have two completely different hair textures. I never would have thought this brand would work on my hair. I have always used ethnic hair products and stayed away from brands such as this one because of the alcohol consumption. I have never in my 22 years felt my hair like this. I feel like I have a completely different head of hair. This product is so amazing and I will FOREVER be using this product in my hair regimen. Thank you so much!! ♥️" —Theressa Hailey

    Get it from Amazon for $8.97.

    19. An all-in-one measuring cup if you're constantly losing your 1/2-cup measuring cup and your tablespoon measurer. No matter what the recipe calls for, you'll be able to measure it perfectly every time with this handy gadget!

    Promising review: "First of all, I gotta say I don’t cook much and if there’s something I hate after cooking is having to wash all the utensils I have to use once I use them. This cube has been amazing — I don’t have to wash a million utensils over and over, it’s very easy to use, easy to clean, and very handy to use for when I’m meal prepping for the week. I bought this out of curiosity and ended up enjoying it a lot. If a regular guy like me is enjoying it, I’m sure it would be a great tool for people who cook or bake on a regular basis." —Daniel Matajira

    Promising review: "If I could give this 10 stars I would! I'm a fanatic when it comes to keeping my jewelry clean, especially my wedding set. I tried this product on my diamonds, Swarovski crystals, and Brighton jewelry, and the results are nothing less than amazing! This restored one of my Swarovski rings that I had not worn in years due to the cloudy color to a sparkling brilliance just like the first day I bought it! I cannot recommend this product enough! I just ordered additional wands so I don't run out! Home run Amazon!" —Kristina B.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed,

    Heather Braga, a BuzzFeed Shopping team member, loves this! Here's what she has to say: "I'm obsessed with candles, so it was a no-brainer for my husband to gift me this surprisingly super fun gadget for Christmas. It's really simple to use and charge, and it really works! If you're someone who gets a thrill from RAW POWER this is sort of the product for you. No, it's not a super intense gadget, relax pyromaniacs, but it does buzz and produce a burst of electricity that I personally find exciting. AND I'll never have to buy another lighter again! Stop burning your fingers on matches and pick up one of these bad boys."

    Promising review: "I LOVE THESE LIGHTS!!! I originally only bought one strand because I thought "why not?" Turned out to be a million times cooler and better than expected! They're super cute, super simple copper strings with some cute tiny fairy lights on them. I have them attached to my ceiling (I live in a dark attic bedroom and it provides perfect ambient lighting). I had to buy another one because they were so cool! They are definitely sturdy enough to clip things too if you want to hang pictures from them with clothespins or something. I highly recommend them to anyone who wants cute subtle lights on their walls or ceiling or anywhere inside." —Samantha Cranor

    Promising review: "After using Lights, Camera, Lashes by Tarte for the past year, I got tired of breaking the bank over mascara. My sister suggested Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect and I IMMEDIATELY fell in love. It provides dramatic length and great volume. I can honestly say I can’t stop looking at my eyelashes in the mirror every single day because of how awesome they look. Also, it is very long-wearing. I go from an eight-hour work day right to the gym and sweat like wild...and this stuff doesn’t budge! I love it!!" —Carrie E Miller

    Promising review: "We purchased a house in August 2019 and I've noticed that the garbage disposal wasn't smelling great. Kept forgetting to do something about it until recently. I purchased these because they seemed to be a good value. I followed the easy directions and was not prepared for the amount of gunk the blue foam pushed out of both sinks. It was gross! After the blue foam died down, I cleaned my sinks and they smelled much better. Almost wanted to do it again, but I'll wait a bit. Highly recommended!" —Sissy39

    27. Or a pack of dishwasher cleaning tablets to at long last eliminate that heinous smell that comes out of your dishwasher whenever you open it. This will get it back to smelling as fresh as the day you moved in.

    Promising review: "After using this product, I am happy to report that my $5 investment saved me over $500. I was ready to replace my dishwasher due to super cloudy glasses, residue, and dishes just not getting clean. Then, I became aware that the water softener was no longer doing its job so I had the rental company replace it. Dishwasher performance improved somewhat. I decided to do two more loads before deciding to purchase a new one. Then I saw a product test review for Affresh. I was ordering some stuff from Amazon anyway so I added that to my order. When it came, I tossed one of the tablets into the bottom of the full machine per the instructions and ran the regular cycle. I did not expect the results I got! The glassware that I thought was permanently etched and ruined came out like new. Same with cutlery. The difference is unbelievable. I will use this faithfully every month, as recommended. I can even put it on my Subscribe and Save order so I will get a new pack every six months. I am amazed!" —Sheila

    Get a pack of six tablets from Amazon for $5.99.

    28. The highly effective Bio-Oil that works wonders to help fade scars (both old and new ones) and moisturize your skin without clogging your pores. It's especially beneficial to anyone who lives in dry climates and needs a hydrating boost for your skin.

    Psst! Bio-Oil contains retinol, which accelerates skin turnover but can make you more sensitive to the sun — so don't forget your sunscreen!

    Promising review: "Bio-Oil is the BEST skin product on the market. I use it as a twice a day — morning and before I go to bed. Small lines have disappeared. My skin is very smooth and seems to glow. A doctor recommended this to one of my friends who told me about it. I have bought several bottles as gifts. Be patient. It will take a few months for you to see notice the changes. I am 71 years old. No one paid me to write this." —Amazon Customer

Do you have a wooden dresser that's been passed down through generations that looks like it's been passed down through generations? This will take those marks and scratches right out.

    Promising review: "This stuff is absolutely AMAZING. My wife and I were getting tired of looking at our worn-out cabinets and wood paneling and were very close to paying a professional thousands of dollars to refinish it all, but then we came across this product. Our paneling and cabinets were looking rough. We have two dogs who jumped up and scratched places. We also had an area that was damaged by water spots where our dog bowls were. Several other areas were just worn from heavy traffic. This stuff was like a magical eraser for water spots, scratches, scuffs, and any other blemish. We simply wiped the product on with a paper towel and let it sit for 20 minutes before wiping it off with a clean towel. Everything looks brand-new. I'm buying a couple more so we can finish our cabinets and wood paneling. We're so glad we found this product." —Kris

    30. A pack of barrettes perfect for spicing up your hairdo. You can stack a few of them on the side of your head, match one to your outfit, or use them to pull back some strands of hair away from your face., Amazon

    Promising reviews: "LOVE this hair clip set! You get a little of everything and at such a great price point. At other stores I’ve seen these same clips but only two for price this whole set costs. I must say, I'm most impressed with the quality. They appear like they’ll last me a long time." —Samantha

    "I don't have anything bad to say about these. The patterns are adorable, the size is perfect, and the quality seems great. Most of them are alligator clips so to avoid bulkiness, you won't want to hold a LOT of hair in them. I do see this as a minor drawback because they can stick a bit away from the side of your head if you wear them close to the front. I prefer to wear them in the back. They're very current and trendy. The value is wonderful. I also really like the bobby pin styles; they add a little something extra to pinning your hair. Go for it if you want a statement hair accessory set." —Vee

    Promising review: "It’s a miracle in a bottle. My German shepherd mix decided to pull a black fountain pen out of my purse and chew it to pieces on my beige carpet while I was sleeping — this cleaner lifted the stain and now it’s like the devastation my dog caused never happened! As soon as I saw it lifting the ink, I got back on Amazon and bought more bottles. I will never let myself run out of this. I use it in my Bissell carpet cleaner for some seriously good cleaning power. I’ve become that weird lady who goes around singing the praises of a cleaning product. No regrets." —L. Logan

    32. A pair of classic aviator sunglasses with mirrored lenses if you're looking to channel your inner Top Gun.,

    Promising reviews: "Adorable mirrored aviators. Inexpensive and totally worth more than I paid. The mirror makes them more fashion than function. Lots of people have complimented me and a friend even tried them on and wanted to keep them. Good value." —AlkalineSteam

    "Literally the only brand of sunglasses that I wear. The flat lens all black classic aviators are my 'everyday' sunglasses and then I have a few other pairs that I rotate through! For the awesome price and strong quality, the value of Sojos is unbeatable! I get so many compliments on mine, and have been buying them for years. They make great gifts for friends too! My only tip is that sometimes I adjust the nose piece to be a little bit wider so they sit lower on my nose. But that might be a nose problem and not a sunglasses problem! Lol BUY THESE. You won’t regret it, for what you pay!" —Vic Broomfield

    Reviewers suggest using short, quick strokes over your carpet or rug to get the most pet hair out. This broom also works great for collecting pet hair on hardwood floors as the rubber bristles work like a magnet to gather all the hair in one big clump.

    Promising review: "Didn’t expect much, just bought this on a whim because on of those 'things from Amazon that actually work' articles you see on social media. Well, I can say that it actually worked perfectly! I thought my carpet was clean because I have a full-size 'pet' vacuum, but I can tell that this broom is the only thing able to get deep enough and pull all that hair and dirt out of the fibers. Even works better on my tile floors than a regular broom. It doesn’t kick up dust particles or leave them behind. Also, I feel you can use this instead of your mop since it also has a squeegee and can be cleaned just by rinsing it. So you get a twofer with this." —Nelio

    36. Or this pet hair roller that will amaze you with how easily it lifts hair off of your clothes, furniture, and blankets. Pet owners absolutely swear by this — it has over 68,000 5-star ratings!,

    The hair collects in a chamber, and when it's full, just open the chamber over a trash can to dump out all the clumped-up hair. And then you can reuse it over and over again!

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my cat-loving life? Sticky rollers work fine for clothes but this is the only product that has ever COMPLETELY removed all the cat hair from my bed. I have a long-haired 20-pound tabby and if you run your hands up his back a few times and fling the hair everywhere, it looks like it's snowing – he never stops shedding no matter what I do. After using the ChomChom, I can put on a black dress and roll around on my bed and not get a single hair on me. It's absolutely amazing. Everyone is getting one for Christmas, even if they don't have a pet. I don't care; it's THAT good." —Dahlia

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    37. A popular streak-free antifog spray so your glasses will stop fogging up every time you wear a mask. Hooray — now you can protect yourself against the virus and be able to see clearly!

    A heads up that this works *super* well for some reviewers, but not all — note that this is meant for non-antireflective-coated lenses, and the instructions for use are very specific. To apply, spray a small amount on both sides of your lenses, and use your fingers to rub it across the whole area. Let it sit for a full minute, then wipe with a dry soft cloth. Once they're fully dry, you should be good to go!

    Promising review: "One thing I was super worried about when needing to start wearing face masks per CDC guidelines was my glasses fogging up. I hate contacts and no matter what design of mask I tried, my glasses always ended up foggy. Enter this magical product and it’s a problem no more. I’d happily pay triple what I paid for it. Worth stocking up on!" —Michelle Salemka

    38. A flexible cleaning brush because cleaning out your lint trap on a regular basis will not only help your clothes dry faster, but it will also prevent house fires that can occur when it's clogged. Use this after every load of laundry just to stay extra safe!

    Promising review: "Work perfectly for scrubbing the stuck lint out of the insides of your dryer. Everyone who owns a dryer should have these, they're basic safety equipment. Clean that lint, and reduce fire hazards and make the machine more efficient. They're long enough, strong enough, and just flexible enough without being too flexible." —Winged Wolf

    40. A scalp massager to give your head a much-needed scrub in the shower. Not only will it help with dandruff and buildup, but it will also leave you feeling so relaxed.,

    Promising review: "This is just what I wanted! Great for a scalp massage. I wanted a product that would not pull my hair, and did not have hard, plastic seams to pull or damage my hair. This is it! Very relaxing to use. It is light and comfortable to hold. I don't have to worry about straining my hands trying to grip this. I can control the amount of pressure perfectly without scratching my scalp. I bought one for my mom, and two for me! Love these. Great gift for the natural hair enthusiast, or anyone looking for a nonmotorized scalp massager." —BunnyLove2

    Check out this promising review from BuzzFeed writer Mallory Mower who owns (and loves!) the Roll Keeper: "Before getting this I was driving myself up the wall with my bad folding habits. I basically shoved all my shirts into the storage drawers under my bed, because I have a teeny tiny closet (the picture above gives you a solid idea of how small it is). This has given me a massive amount of clothing storage I didn't have before. The quality is stellar and Traci is 10/10 the most thoughtful person I've purchased an Etsy product from!"

    42. An interactive cat dancer toy even the most aloof of kitties will get up to play with. It's just spring steel wire with rolled cardboard at the end, but this simple toy is entertaining enough to keep your cat pouncing for hours.

    This has over 18,000 5-star ratings on Amazon!

    Promising review: "I started off reluctantly with one Cat Dancer toy. That day, I ordered three much more expensive cat toys. I didn’t see how this thing could be that entertaining. A month later: we have three more Cat Dancer toys. The more expensive toys may as well be nonexistent compared to the springy wires with cardboard thingies on the ends. I have to hide them on top of the fridge, under the pillows, under the couch. It’s just amazing to everyone in our household how something so simple (and inexpensive) can be our cats' favorite. They beg for this, while the expensive toys sit. So why not give it a try?" —Kimber

    43. A rhinestone headband that will make you feel like the royalty you are when you're wearing it. Reviewers say it doesn't dig into your head — even after a full day of wearing it — like most headbands do.

    Promising reviews: "The headband pictures were definitely cute and I was intrigued. Once I got my purchase, talk about a show-stopper — quality, look, and versatility was amazing. The most important and best part is the rhinestones don’t catch, which mean you don’t have to worry about them pulling your hair or anything." —Miss_Shan

    "WOW...I AM BEYOND SPEECHLESS....This headband is the most beautiful perfect headband I've ever worn or owned! I literally feel like a QUEEN wearing this headband it feels a like a tiara on my head! I have had soooo many compliments and it's sooo comfortable and since my hair is a dark brown/black color it pops and looks even better! I am going to have to definitely purchase this item again because it's honestly that amazing! The bling is just perfect and it shines soooo beautifully in the sun! This headband will not disappoint!!!!!" —Kp

    44. A big ol' bag of powdered cheddar cheese because mac 'n' cheese is the ultimate comfort food, and knowing you have the power to make it as cheesy as possible is about as comforting as it gets.


    Promising review: "OMG where has this been my whole adult life with kids?! As a child growing up in the '90s, I lived on Kraft mac 'n' cheese. Fast-forward and now I have two little kids of my own. I always stayed away from most boxed mac 'n' cheese because of all of the bad ingredients, though my kids have had Kraft on the rare occasion. I stumbled across this stuff that was recommended by BuzzFeed so I got it. It came this morning and the kids were devouring it by dinner. I boiled 8 ounces of organic whole-wheat elbow noodles, drained and then added 2 tablespoons of butter, 2-ish tablespoons of milk (or yogurt), and then 3 tablespoons of the cheese mix. I did add a pinch of salt to kick up the flavor a bit. The package has a zip lock and the bag I got is good until October, so seven months? I bet we will go through the whole bag by then!" —ACP

    These detanglers from Wad-Free aren't recommended for use with bamboo, eucalyptus, or rayon sheets.

    Promising review: "Wow!!! You wonder if things like this really work and well, I can absolutely confirm it does! First, I was impressed that the package came with two of the devices because I was only expecting one. So there was one for the fitted sheet, and the flat sheet. Finally, I tried it out and my sheets not only did NOT wad up, they came out of the dryer feeling fresher, feeling more dry, and unwrinkled! I will be buying a set of these for each of my immediate family members and close friends! What a great gift!!!" —katy
