    22 Products That’ll Make You Think “This Is The First Day Of My Life”

    If thousands of impassioned customer reviews can be trusted, then there is some way greener grass waiting for you.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. 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. Anti-fog spray, because whoever coined "20/20 vision in 2020" probably wasn't anticipating a pandemic in which we'd be masked up and literally unable to see through the fog of our glasses.

    a reviewer holding the small spray bottle of anti-fog spray

    Promising review: "BEST ANTI-FOG SPRAY I'VE FOUND ANYWHERE!!! Working in a factory wearing a mask and safety glasses is a nightmare and this spray has totally changed my work life!! I tend to sweat a lot so I typically have to apply once or twice a day but has made my life so much better! If you're looking for anti fog spray, BUY THIS PRODUCT! You get an amazing deal and it will definitely do as described!!" —Jharr

    Get it from Amazon for $10.55+ (available in three sizes).

    2. A mini fabric steamer so you can finally look like you didn't fish your trousers out of your hamper (and not in a chic Parisian, crinkled-linen kind of way)., BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "This steamer has changed my life! I used to work in retail and the shop had a commercial garment steamer. Since then I have owned a couple $100+ home steamers and have been sorely disappointed. This little steamer has the steaming power of the commercial steamer that I fell in love with and is small enough for me to bring on my travels. I normally only bring a carryon when I travel, so the fact that this is about the size of a 1-liter water bottle is amazing. I've raved about how amazing this thing is so much that my mom and brother purchased their own!"—Reviewer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    3. A broom for pet and human hair that'll take things even one step further than most vacuums can — reaching deep into the disturbing depths of your rugs (and all sorts of floors, too) to achieve a brand-new appearance.

    Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I cannot say enough good things about this product! We have three German Shepherds and no one told me they shed 365 days per year and this broom helps my house to stay hair-free. The handle stretches out and is super easy to use to get underneath furniture, but you can also collapse it down and use to go across your furniture too. Super easy to clean — rinse it off with soapy water. I love the squeegee side to go across my area rugs and get up all of the dog hair and then use the broom part across the tile and under the furniture and get the hair into the dustpan. I use it for every room in my house — this broom has replaced every other broom in my house! If you have pets you need this — you won't be disappointed. I am going to buy one for everyone in my family who has pets as their next gift from me — they are that good and affordable!" —Tammy M.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.10.

    4. A "Bug Bite Thing" suction tool to achieve what you previously thought was impossible: rapidly reduce the swelling, redness, and itchiness of that horrific mosquito bite you got in your sleep.

    Rebecca O'Connell / BuzzFeed

    This works on mosquitoes, bees, wasps, biting flies, sea lice, and more (although TBH, if this list of bugs gets any longer I may just stay indoors forever!!).

    Promising review: "I discovered this item on TikTok and found it to be quite interesting. I was skeptical to purchase at first but decided to give it a try since my kid’s bug bites swell and are incredibly itchy. I’m amazed at how well it works. Tried it the other night on my daughter’s mosquito bite, and it provided immediate relief. The swelling around the bite went down and itching stopped after a minute or two. It’s easy to use. It does leave a round imprint on the skin but disappears after a couple of minutes. My 9-year-old daughter uses it on her own bug bites. I have recommended this to family and friends who are considering purchasing the product. Love it!" —Garima Chauhan

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    5. A foot file that'll remove calluses and cracked skin from your feet with such ease and precision that, yes, you might mistake them for a baby's.

    Promising review: "AMAZING!!! Seriously beyond impressed with this product. I've never had dry or cracked heels until recently and I've tried everything I could find to get rid of them! This is all you need!!! Just check out the 'before' and 'after.' I literally opened the box and did this in less than a minute! I'll never use anything else! Even better than professional pedicures!!!" —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    6. A just-right Casper mattress with soft foam around the shoulders (for upper body relief) and firm foam under the hips, waist, and lower back (for proper spine alignment) so you can hopefully avoid some trips to the chiropractor.

    Casper mattress

    Promising review: "From the start I was a little skeptical, but a very good friend recommended Casper. So my wife and I talked and decided to give it a chance. After all, with 100 days to try it out there was only a little effort to lose. So we unpacked the mattress and let it sit open for 24 hours. I have to say, opening the box and cutting the wrapping off was a cool experience. We replaced our mattress with the Casper, kept our original box spring. Night one it was comfortable, firm, cool to the touch, and felt like a hug. Night two I realized that the edge was not as firm as a standard mattress, but then again it was not hard on the edge. I realized that I have been sleeping on the edge of my mattress and it was not doing me any favors. The Casper changed my body alignment in the bed and I am glad it did. After a week we both agreed it was a good mattress. After a month we decided to keep it and discarded our original mattress. It has been over a year now and I would not trade the Casper for anything. If you paid me a million dollars, I would give you the mattress, but I would buy another one and keep the rest of the money. I played college football, weigh over 300 pounds, have bad knees, hips, shoulders, and back, but this mattress allows me to get out of bed without any pain. With my old mattress it would sometimes take me 20 minutes to walk after getting up. With the Casper I hop out of bed with no pain, it is the best part of my day." —David Lopshire

    Get it from Casper for $595+ (available in Twin to Cal King).

    7. An Instant Pot that just might revolutionize the way you cook — and by that I mean, you might actually *start* cooking. A great cost-saving measure when takeout begins to rule everything around you (TREAM).

    Instant Pot containing macaroni and cheese and shredder next to it

    What can't this thing do? It can cook rice, pressure-cook, slow-cook, steam, saute, make yogurt, and warm up food. It cannot drive your children to school.

    Promising review: "I absolutely despise spending a lot of time in the kitchen after work. I am tired, just want to pour a glass of wine, and binge-watch Supernatural. My boyfriend can't cook to save his life, so that isn't much help either. I'd feel better eating something created out of real, edible foods rather than microwaved in a pouch with fake cheese, so I cook even when I stay over at his house. Just when I was pondering the option of breaking up and finding a man who can cook (not really), INSTANT POT HAPPENED! Dinner is done and ready to eat every time in less than an hour. Sometimes WAY less than an hour. I can't believe I survived 30 years without one! It would have been AMAZING back when I was in college! I am constantly learning new things I can whip up (sometimes trial and error, sometimes recipe books). I can throw frozen chicken breasts in it, seasoning, just hit poultry setting, adjust the time up a bit, and boom. Super tender amazing chicken. Something about handling raw chicken makes me too disgusted to eat it once it's cooked, so being able to throw it in frozen is such a relief." —Sunahm

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99+ (available in 6- and 8-quart).

    8. A white-noise sound machine with 20 settings to ensure you get a good night's sleep even when your upstairs neighbors decide to do some late-night furniture rearranging.

    Small white-noise sound machine

    Promising review: "This device saved. My. Life. Well, not literally, but it definitely saved my sanity. I'm a highly anxious person who is extremely noise-sensitive and vulnerable to sensory overload. Cue moving into my first college apartment, where the upstairs neighbors' every footstep can be heard amplified and bass boosted through my ceiling. (Of course, before I signed the lease, the landlord didn't mention this... 'feature.') My room is right below their kitchen, so in addition to the stomping, I can hear all their yelling and banging around pots and pans all hours of the day and into the night. I was losing a LOT of sleep over this, and it ramped up my anxiety tenfold. I felt like I couldn't be at peace in my own home and dreaded having to come back here at all... My safe, comfortable space was constantly being violated by noise pollution and there was literally nothing I could do about it.

    I almost considered moving out or at least switching to an upstairs unit ... that is, until I happened upon this amazing little device. I never cared for 'white noise' machines that wasn't true white noise; ocean waves and rainfall isn't as soothing when you have upstairs neighbors with lead for feet. You really need a good, loud, pure white noise that masks all frequencies and that your brain can easily ignore, so it seems as if there's no noise at all. This thing was absolutely perfect for me, as it only had white noise and fan sounds (and a variety of 'em!) that can get loud enough to mask anything. I mean ANYTHING. I can now peacefully snooze through not only my neighbors' stomping kitchen antics, but also the 8 a.m. garbage truck arriving bright and early every Wednesday." —Courtney

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99.

    9. A carpet-spot remover so you can finally discard that oddly placed welcome mat you've been using to strategically cover up stains. From fatal crime scene to first day of your life — this is progress!

    Promising review: "I remember being completely dumbfounded by my pencil eraser as a kid. Where did the marks go? I looked in the air, I looked under my paper. What's it made of? Does it have to be pink? This carpet cleaner caused the same dumbfounded confusion when 'spray, rub, gone' actually worked. I've obviously lost some of my childhood curiosity over the years, because I didn't try to figure out how the carpet stain disappeared. Who cares? It's gone! I practically skipped to the next room to try it out. The memory smudge of food, footprints, dog vomit. Gone. It even worked SOMEWHAT on the decade-old mystery stain left behind by the previous owners that professional carpet cleaning couldn't remove. How does it work? I don't care. What are the ingredients? Pixie dust and incantation. Where did all the stains go? Away." —k

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (for a 32-ounce bottle).

    10. A pair of wireless Beats headphones that'll stand up to some serious sweating — which is great news if you're a person who has had to replace a pair or two because you went a bit too hard with your fitness.

    Emma McAnaw / BuzzFeed

    Here's a part of Emma McAnaw's review for these splurge-worthy earbuds:

    "These Beats headphones have been a real game-changer for me. The sound quality is SO MUCH better than my cheap headphones, which has actually really improved my experience while working out. I find it easier to stay motivated now that my music is *crystal clear* (and I can't hear myself wheezing). They can hold a charge for a pretty long time, as long you always store them in their charging case. I usually use them for a full work day without needing to re-charge them. Plus, they're really comfy in my ears and never fall out, thanks to their clever hook design (if you have comfort issues with Apple headphones, these will probably feel better)!"

    Get them from Amazon for $249.95 (available in four colors).

    11. A conditioning and healing castor oil packed with vitamins and fatty acids made to give you hair growth results within just a week, if you're anything like the 20 thousand + customers who've left raves.

    It also works to combat dry skin.

    Promising review: "I am so happy I bought this product! I took steroid pain injections (age 21-23) and the doctor failed to tell me it may cause you to lose hair. That's exactly what happened to me, I started to lose my hair and its thickness. I tried everything from Biotin, B-12, repairing shampoo and conditioners, hair masks, medicated shampoos and nothing was filling in my scalp or giving my hair the thickness like it used to. I decided to try this and it works! My scalp is filling back in and my hair is getting thick! It's a wonderful miracle! I started crying when I saw the results I was so happy! The oil is thick but it does not mean you cannot apply it you just need to really work it in. I usually leave it in overnight because it's easier to get out that way. You can also use other oils if it is too thick for you. It does have a slight smell but I think because it's all organic, but it is not overpowering or that noticeable. I am going to buy this product again and recommend it to other people!" —Angel of Light

    Get it from Amazon for $17.95.

    12. A portable door lock for a super simple security solution — without the need for any tools whatsoever.

    Thin red lock and metal addition slid into doorframe

    This thing is super strong and takes less than a minute to install. Just open the door and insert the claws on the back of the silver piece into the "strike" of the door (the hole where the lock fits in) and then close the door. After you've done that, take the metal rod on the red handle and insert it into the butterfly hole on the silver piece. This completely locks the door handle – no one from the outside could even try to peak in.

    Promising review: "This is a LIFESAVER...literally. Thanks to Add-A-Lock's simple design and simple instructions, my 18-month-old can no longer leave the apartment and wander the halls or attempt to take rides on the elevator in my apartment building. This is well worth the money. Five stars!!" —Lori S.

    13. A John Frieda hot air brush to achieve that salon-quality blowout at home without breaking the bank or, really, exerting much effort at all., Amazon

    Read our full review of the John Frieda hot air brush!

    Promising review: "This is a total game changer for people like me with wavy hair that always gives me a disheveled appearance or the appearance that I just don't care. I do care, I just do not have the coordination or patience to figure out how to 'do' my hair. I've tried products, brushes, and different styles. This came in the mail today. I showered and washed my hair. I dried my hair for maybe 90 seconds with my hair dryer to get it about 80% dry. (I have medium/shoulder length hair.) I turned this on, and it was magical. My hair dried and finished in a matter of a few minutes. I was so taken aback by the change this made, I called everyone I knew. My 15-year-old niece said it looked like I had just left the salon! Simple old me giving myself a salon quality hairdo. The results held all day. Where has this been all my life? I love this and will be buying one for my sister and niece. Awesome!" —Michelle Fetter

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in two sizes).

    14. An essential oil stick that'll say "not today satan" to that migraine you feel coming in the middle of your workday.

    Promising review: "I have had tension and migraine headaches for around 20 years. I have tried everything. OTC medication, prescription medication, pain injections, chiropractor etc... This topical oil has given me relief for nearly six weeks now. I have only had two to three headaches in that time, and they were mild. I ordered more already so I have some in my car and at home, and I bought some for two of my friends who suffer from chronic migraines. I would recommend this product to anyone with migraines. It is phenomenal." —Mary D.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    15. A jewelry cleaning pen to bring that brilliant shine back to your cloudy gems. A powerful metaphor if I ever saw one.

    Cloudy ring gem worn on finger (left); clear and sparkling ring gem worn on finger (right)

    Promising review: "I actually don’t understand how this works so well. I used to drop my rings in a bit of watered down Windex, let them soak, then scrub with a soft toothbrush, rinse, and dry. That process took about 15 minutes, and even then my rings, and particularly the stones, were not flawless looking afterwards. I thought it did the job. ENTER DIAMOND DAZZLE STICK! I bought this after reading a BuzzFeed list and now I literally I sound like an infomercial talking about this thing. It’s incredible. First you dispense a little product, and you don’t even have to take your ring off!!! Then you scrub for approximately three seconds, rinse, and BAM!!!! Holy sparkles, Batman. My precious stones have never looked better. Even rings that looked pretty good before, I couldn’t believe how sparkly they were after this. Dazzle is right I guess. Consider me a lifetime customer." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    16. A Squatty Potty that'll really help you speed things up in the bathroom. The handy stool (for lack of a better word) gets your colon in the proper alignment. Many customers with chronic constipation and gastrointestinal issues swear by it.

    Promising review: "First off, let me say I'd marry this if I could. I love Squatty Potty and Squatty Potty loves me. Anyways, back to my review. I've struggled with... inconsistency in the bathroom if you catch my drift. I've tried everything from laxatives (natural and non) to drinking hella water and increasing my coffee intake. I knew I had to go, but I never really went.. all the way. But no longer! There's a reason these things are selling. It's so much easier on your body in almost every aspect. After you use a Squatty Potty, every potty without one just seems... sad and unsatisfying. I'm thinking about buying another one and taking it to the office. No shame." —Gbell

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    17. A bottle of nail and cuticle repair oil to help strengthen and condition what used to be worn-out and brittle.

    A before image of a reviewer's brittle nails and an after image of them much heaithier

    Promising review: "It's a miracle! I had peeling, weak nails for years. Tried everything. A friend recommended a nail strengthener they saw on QVC. It was quite pricey and I wanted to make sure it was worth it so I read the reviews. One of the comments said just buy Solar Oil. Since it was much more affordable than the QVC stuff, I tried it. I bought it 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 four ounce refill bottle because I never want to run out of it again! Cannot recommend this stuff enough!" —Diana

    Get it from Amazon for $8.50.

    18. A hard water stain-remover so you can start each morning by seeing your stunning face staring back at you on your stainless-steel appliances.

    It can also work on toilets, tiles, and shower doors — anything that's been affected by hard water!

    Promising review: "If you want the clear spotless glass door this is it. I’ve tried everything on the internet. Lemon, vinegar, car wash window cleaning product, etc. You name it. And nothing worked as I hoped. I can’t believe how long it took me to discover this product. What a life-changing moment for me! I was so stressed out about the glass doors in my house — we have three bathrooms. It’s so hard to keep them looking and feeling clean. But now I know how. My shower looks brand-new again!" —Leonardzoo

    Get it from Amazon for $18.89.

    19. A natural surface spray that'll work wonders on just about any surface — perfect for anyone who is sick of having to buy a specific solution for every imaginable part of their home.

    Surface cleaner being sprayed onto stainless steel countertops

    Hello, it's me, a newly minted Laundress head. I started using this spray a few months ago and promptly lost control in the kitchen (and signed up for the monthly replenishment program)! I insist on cleaning every corner with the sweet, ylang ylang-scented stuff. Did I mention it is the first product that's ever successfully worked to remove all the grime on my fridge? No choice but to stan.

    Get it from Laundress for $12.

    20. A genetic ancestry test kit for your pup, so you can finally identify the exact breed breakdown of the creature you're living with. Who knows: This info could help you get ahead of many health issues that come with the domain of owning a particular dog.

    Promising review: "This was awesome, and I'm so glad we used it! We have a big, doofy looking dog that we adopted years back but never bothered to try to figure out what he was. He looks like a gigantic boxer with some other weird quirks thrown in. We originally thought maybe he was a Dogo Argentino, but when we started looking some more, we thought American Bulldog with some boxer thrown in. We got the test and gave him the ol' swab in the mouth — only a couple seconds of swabbing between his cheek and gums was enough for the test. Sent it off, got the confirmation in a few days, then the results in about two weeks. Much to our amazement, he is 75% boxer, 12.5% American Bulldog, and 12.5% Standard Bulldog! Here's where people get bent out of shape about this product: They think that it can magically discern everything in your dog's bloodline, and that your dog's looks have to comport with their genetics. Not so much. If you have a true mutt (e.g. a dog whose parents were mutts, and whose grandparents were also mutts), it's not going to help you. It's going to come back as a mixed breed. if you understand the product's limitations, this is a great tool to give you some insight into your furry friend." —Great Odin's Raven

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99.

    21. A massage ball that'll make you wonder, Wait, am I actually...a massage therapist? (No, but that won't stop you from giving it a whirl every single day.)

    A blue massage ball held in a hand resting on bed sheets

    Promising review: "Amazing. Seriously, buy this. It is the best back massage I’ve ever had. I have trouble with my wrists and hands and can’t massage my husband’s back for very long. This is small and easily fits in my hand. I can give him a great massage without pain. He massaged my back with it as well and it’s phenomenal! I would definitely buy this again and I’ve recommended it to my family." —Mifflinpartyofthree

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (available in purple, pink, green, and blue).

    22. A mini portable washing machine for urban dwellers who weren't blessed with an in-unit machine. Imagine: A life without laundromats and/or drop-off service fees. I know — it's hard!

    White mini portable washing machine

    Promising review: "For anyone without the option of a full size washer/dryer, this is a life saver. It is powerful, dependable and a definite time/money saver. I love the thing." —Slayer6
