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.

Since then I have bought another dress in a different color and excited to wear them this summer! BUY THIS DRESS. if you’re second guessing whether or not to buy it.. BUY IT." —Rhianna Hill

    "This is the cutest dress I’ve ever bought on Amazon. I took a risk, but I wanted a true wrap dress. I ordered a large and the waist was a little loose, but the tie allowed me to tie it a little tighter, which creates a cute 'bunched' look. It’s lightweight, not stretchy material (which kinda scared me), but it fits around my curves perfectly still. I’m super excited to wear this for the summer. I wore it for our Valentine's date night and my boyfriend loved it. I also got about five compliments that day from total strangers. I might have to order more in different colors." —Nidia

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These masks are amazing for two main reasons: 1. The eye masks stay in place! Once you lay them under your eyes, they stay put. 2. My under eye area genuinely feels refreshed after use. I use these masks after I finish my main skin care routine of cleansing, toning, and serum. I put on my normal moisturizer after I am done with the eye mask. I leave the mask on for about 15 minutes. I like to use an eye mask at least every other day. I stare at a screen all day and I get very stressed, so the eye masks help soothe my tired eyes. These eye masks are a bit pricey; however, I guarantee they are worth every penny." —Carson

    reviewer holding up a black personal fan outside
    amazon.com

    I bought this to take on a summer trip to Disney World and let me tell you — it's the only way I survived!! Every day got well into the 90s, but I kept this pointed at my face whenever I wasn't soaking up air conditioning. I was seriously impressed with how powerful it was and how I instantly felt less sweaty. The charge lasts about a day if you use it sparingly (or a few hours of continuous use) so make sure to charge it nightly if you're on a trip. The fan has three speed settings, and it folds so you can prop it up on a table.

    Promising review: "I have ZERO complaints!!! My sister got married outdoors and I decided I needed a fan as I sweat a lot. Suffice to say I LOVE IT! I was cool the entire time in the sun, it has a handle and is not too big which makes it easy to tag along any and everywhere. You won’t regret this purchase." –DIONNE HOOK

    21. 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.com, 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 get 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

    22. 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

    Get it from Amazon for $11.89+ (available in 10 colors).

    23. A curling wand for getting that perfectly tousled, beachy waves look with ease. It also comes with a heatproof glove to protect your hand from touching the wand.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    I have used this curling wand almost daily for five years straight and it gives me loose curls that stay in place all day long. It's super easy to use and the tapered barrel lets you customize the tightness of your curl. I've also found that the ceramic wand doesn't make my hair look frizzy like other hair tools do.

    Promising review: "Ok, so this thing is seriously amazing! I bought the smaller barrel (1/2-1 inch) and can't believe how easy it was to curl my hair! I have very frizzy curly hair and wanted something to smooth out the frizz while making my curls a little looser and polished looking, and this wand nailed it! Super easy to use with a little practice. Watch a lot of YouTube videos for tips and tricks. I'm in love!" —MamaMcGeez

I'm buying one for everyone in my family." –Melissa T

    Promising review: "I’ve had these brushes for a couple of weeks now and I absolutely love them. As a makeup artist I’m always looking for good brushes for a fair price. These brushes are fantastic and you absolutely cannot beat the price. I was a skeptic at first because the price is too good to be true but they really are good brushes. They are super soft and blend the makeup very easily. And they are incredibly easy to clean. I’ll definitely be buying them again." –Tim and Kimmie

    Heather, 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!

    Promising review: "I am not a blush person. My makeup routine is pretty light, and I have naturally pink cheeks. I haven't really felt the need and am usually scared to go overboard with disastrous consequences. BUT cloud paint is beautiful!! I finally bought it and just use the slightest amount in the apple of my cheeks and up the start of my cheekbone area and it adds this super super natural, blended in glowy flush. Sooo worth it, didn't think I'd see a difference or like it but now I use it every day. For reference I got storm and I have pretty fair skin, if there's a 20 shade range of face makeup I'm usually the second or third shade." —allyce

    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 faerie 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: "I love this mask. Overall, it does everything I hoped it would. I have super sensitive skin that reacts to almost everything, but this mask has kept my skin super soft, and blemish-free. Even when I do get a blemish, I use the mask, and it’s magically gone by the next day. You definitely need a moisturizer or serum afterward, so don’t expect to be hydrating. It’s not drying at all, just not super moisturizing I would say. I use a silicone mask brush to put it on and it works perfectly. It’s a thick and sticky mask and I imagine it would be a pain to deal with if you’re using your fingers. Oh, and best of all for a peel-off mask: IT ACTUALLY PEELS OFF IN ONE PIECE! Overall, great mask, I highly suggest it, and will buy again." —kmf95

    Get it from Amazon for $23.
