1. A no-mess garlic roller that peels multiple cloves at once without crushing them in the process.

Promising review: "Wow, I love this thing. Finally one of my biggest cooking annoyances — peeling garlic cloves — has become super fast and easy. In just a couple quick rolls the peel falls off the garlic cloves. Wish I'd bought it years ago!" —KP in Portland Price: $8.37

2. A scalp massager shampoo brush for a deep and exfoliating wash that'll make you feel like you were doing it wrong this whole time.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I'm sitting here stunned an hour later at how good I feel. I didn't realize the extent to which my scalp bothered me before until now. Even my hair looks better, which is a bonus I wasn't expecting." —C

Price: $7.98 (available in light green and pink)

3. A pair of no-show bikini panties made of a comfortable, stretchy spandex material.

Promising review: "These are the best. My Victoria’s Secret no-shows have definitely been replaced (and for much less money). I was really looking for underwear that I could wear to work out that wouldn’t show lines through my leggings, wouldn’t ride up like my VS ones, would breathe a little, and would stay comfortable all day. These were it." —RebeccaPrice: $12.99+ (available in sizes S-L and in nine variety packs)

4. A pack of cockroach gel bait if you're at wits' end and need something that'll go full Mother! on your unwelcome house guests.

Promising review: "Last night I put the first glob down in the kitchen. Before I had even stood all the way back up — no lie — three adult roaches had beelined straight for it. That was promising so I followed the directions and baited the entire kitchen and entryway/laundry area and left to go meet some friends. Eight hours later I went back home and there were dead/dying roaches EVERYWHERE and the bait was gone. Holy cow this stuff is magic!" —LesbianUnicornPrice: $25.53

5. A pack of Hershey's-brand cold brew double shots that are —wait, did I read that right? — organic.

Promising review: "These are excellent for days I’m in a hurry. With a one-year-old to chase around, it can be hard to sit and enjoy a normal cup of hot coffee so these do the trick on those crazy days too. They taste great and I love that they’re organic also!!" —ShopsOnlineTooMuchPrice: $11.95 for a 6-pack

6. A Hane's V-neck tee with "X-Temp" cooling technology, so you can stay cool and look cool.

Promising review: "Brought this on a trip and was grateful for the wicking properties and the quick dry. The weather I encountered was unusually hot so the shirt kept me cool and when washed, it dried quickly. I might add it to my workout wear collection now, but the nice thing about it was that it didn't look like obvious workout wear." —A.B.Price: $4.16 (available in sizes S-XXXL and in14 colors)

7. 1,227 Quite Interesting Facts to Blow Your Socks Off, for an oddly delightful collection of trivia to spark conversations and .... I think, remove your socks for you?

Promising review: "As our all-school substitute teacher, I like to have this little pocket-tool available in case I need to come up with a research topic, or an interesting discussion topic at the last moment. Facts about prisoner illiteracy, colleges, even Jimmy Cater sending the nuclear launch codes to the dry cleaner in a sport coat are amazing springboards for quick lessons!" —Gary Cochran Price: $13.55

8. A waffle-knit blouse that's fit for any occasion.

amazon.com

Promising review: "Comfortable, soft, and good quality. This shirt is super cute and is great for everyday or a casual date night out. I’m 5’7 about 175 and the medium fit perfect. I don’t like my clothes to fit oversized but if you want an oversized slouchy look order 1 or 2 sizes up. Fabric is lightweight and isn’t overly see through."

Price: $6.99 (available in sizes S-XXL and in seven colors)

9. A pair of stretch-jersey bike shorts you don't even really have to use on bike rides to enjoy.

Promising review: "These were exactly what I was looking for to wear under skirts/dressing to keep my thighs from rubbing together and getting chub rub. The material is soft and feels nice on. They are not so long that they would show underneath a dress, but long enough to cover my upper thighs. I love them and I'm glad I ordered two pairs on my first order." —BAESC87Price: $5.66+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in black and charcoal heather)

10. A jewelry cleaner that'll give you some killer before and after photos.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I've used this on my wedding set (platinum & diamonds) and on a white gold ring with an aquamarine stone (in picture I posted) and it worked great! Got a better clean with this cleaner than when I take to the jeweler. The jar has a basket with stick like handle, that holds the brush, which makes for easy, safe cleaning of jewelry. Can't wait to clean other items!" —Mrs. B

Price: $7.95

11. A dry shampoo just for brunettes with a (rightful) aversion to frequent shampooing.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I have tried other brands of dry shampoo and will never go back. This is by far the best. It goes on so easily. I barely have to brush it out at all. It is super light, goes on dry, vs some other brands that I have tried that actually dampen my hair when applied. The brown tint matches my hair color perfectly. It works like magic to eliminate oil in my super fine, thin hair and I do not have to wash every day, which is my goal. Lastly, it is very lightly fragranced, and is pleasant smelling. Highly recommended." —JayneDoah

Price: $8.54

12. A makeup brush set that'll make you wonder why anyone would ever splurge on a high-end version.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: I've worked at the Estée Lauder counter and used several high end brand brushes. I would definitely say these are comparable to high end brushes. You'll really notice the good quality while washing. Out of 28 brushes (I bought two sets) one, I repeat, one hair fell out. I have pricier Bare Minerals brushes that constantly shed from day one until now after several washes. I gave them a pretty aggressive wash and the brush and handle feel very sturdy and well made. Definitely give these a try if you hate spending a ton of money but want good quality brushes." —Amazon Customer

Price: $10.98 for a 14-piece set (available in four colors)

13. A pack of gold (foil-gold, guys) playing cards to add some sparkle to your next poker tournament.

Promising review: "These cards are very durable and unlike the paper cards, they don't rip, tear or fade. Will never purchase paper cards ever again!" —Andy CPrice: $4.97

14. A very intense vibrator with eight settings you'll be buzzing about.

Promising review: Holy crap is this thing good. I have a Doc Johnson pocket rocket that usually does the job in about 60 seconds. I kid you not, 10 seconds and my eyes were rolling back in my head. And it's soooooo quiet! THIS. IS. THE. REAL. DEAL!" —Angie W.Price: $69 (available in black, pink, and cerise)

15. A pair of ballet flats that are a flat-out steal.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "These shoes are absolutely adorable! I got my usual size 6 and they fit perfectly. No room to spare, but not uncomfortably small. Plus the slight cushion at the bottom makes them feel comfortable. These shoes are everything I could ask for in a flat shoe. Very happy with this purchase. I ordered another pair in black. And another pair in multi." —Melanie_and_David

Price: $7.99 (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in 23 colors)

16. A corduroy overall dress for a look that says, "fall AF."

Promising review: "I absolutely ADORE these overalls! I've been searching far and wide for the perfect cute overall dress, and I couldn't be happier. The fit is perfect, despite me being busty and having a substantial backside. The length is perfect, enough above the knee. The blue color is just as pictured, a perfect sort of pastel blue-grey, and the pocket in front is actually sort of nifty for small knickknacks." —Stephanie Price: $9.99 (available in sizes XS-XL and in 20 colors)

17. A handy financial planner, if one of your big resolutions in the new year is paying off all your debt.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I love this! The size is perfect, not big and bulky like some others. There is plenty of room to plan my monthly budget, including recurring automatic payment withdrawals which we have several of. The pocket is large enough to hold the cash envelopes that we also utilize. And it's very pretty and reasonably priced. It's never fun to pay bills, but you may as well make it as organized as possible! This does everything I need it to do and then some!" —Amazon Customer

Price: $12.95

18. A keyboard cover for anyone who's getting bored of the plain old black keys on their laptop.

Promising review: "I got this a couple of months ago, and I love this keyboard cover. It has a nice feeling, is very flexible, and when I put it on my Macbook Air, it fit like a glove. It doesn't come off even when I'm moving my laptop around a lot (which I do, I do a lot of work on the sofa or the bed where I end up in weird positions to be comfortable) and it's also very comfortable to write on." —Sadia RahmanPrice: $5.79 (available in 28 colors)

19. And an African soap bar with shea butter, honey, and aloe vera that has restored tons of customers' damaged skin.

Promising review: "This has to be the best soap ever. I have used many soaps and I always come back to this brand. I use it in the shower but mainly for my face. I had stopped using it for a while but after a bout with acne andhyperpigmentation I started using it again and it started immediately clearing my acne." —Cheri HudsonPrice: $5.66
