    1. An exfoliating glove with immediate results you can actually see — seriously, the dead skin just clumps up and rolls right off of your body. We love and hate to see it.

    2. An incredibly popular repairing hair treatment that takes just eight seconds to reverse damage and restore shine. Apply it after shampoo but before conditioner and let the amino acids and "lamellar water technology" work its magic to smooth your hair without weighing it down. It has over 16,000 rave reviews — and the before and after photos really speak for themselves.

    3. A beloved nourishing cream to condition your cuticles and help your nails grow to impressive lengths. Your hands will look manicure-fresh — but without the outrageous nail salon prices.

    4. A bottle of earwax removal drops that uses fizzy microfoam action to break down all the stubborn wax that's been clogging up your ears for way too long now. Here's to hearing again!

    Promising review: "I've been having ear hearing/cloggage issues for a month. My ear would not drain properly and it was frustrating me very much. I bought this product and used it twice and I could ear again. This is by far the best ear-cleaning product ever! Highly recommended!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $2.49 (also available in a pack of two).

    5. A handmade glass cleaner made with a thick paste-like formula to break down years and years of hard water stains.

    7. Or a tube of eye cream and concealer all wrapped into one — because who has time to apply both?! It's packed with hyaluronic acid to hydrate and de-puff and it has the perfect amount of tint to cover those pesky dark circles.

    9. A peel-off mask that's basically the textbook definition of gross but soooooo satisfying. Just apply a layer to your problem areas (or your whole face!) then peel it off after 20-30 minutes.

    10. Or a three-step pore strip kit that is waaaayyyy more powerful than the ones you usually buy from the drugstore. The first step will help open up your pores, the second step sucks everything out, and the third step helps soothe your newly squeaky-clean nose.

    11. A styling mousse made with rose water and acai berries to help define your curls and stop them from becoming a frizzy mess by the time the afternoon rolls around.

    12. The talented, brilliant, incredible, amazing, showstopping Olaplex treatment that's constantly on Amazon's bestsellers list. It'll repair damaged strands to help reduce breakage and give you salonworthy results.

    13. A pack of special silicone cups so you can whip up poached eggs like a professional chef.

    14. A gross but oh so satisfying exfoliating foot mask to remove all the dead skin that's lurking on your feet. Simply slip the booties on and let the fruit acid and 17 types of natural extracts get to work while you kick back.

    15. And a jar of the ever-popular O'Keeffe's Healthy Feet foot cream, which has impressed over 37,000 Amazon reviewers. The thick cream not only hydrates, but also forms a protective barrier to keep your feet looking their best over time. Don't be shocked if they basically transform right in front of your eyes.

    16. A jar of super moisturizing cream that will basically give you brand new hands. Its blend of beeswax and glycerin will get your skin back to normal if increased hand-washing has wreaked havoc on your hands.

    18. A nonabrasive, bleach-free cleaning and polishing powder you can sprinkle on everything from cookware to sinks, stoves, bathtubs, and toilets.

    It'll remove rust, tarnish, stains, and mineral deposits from stainless steel, porcelain, ceramic, copper alloys, fiberglass, Corian, brass, bronze, chrome, and aluminum.

    Promising review: "I bought this after seeing numerous recommendations, and after years of searing and occasionally burning things in my stainless pans, it was time to try to bring them to a better state. Not only did this easily scrub off the latest culinary leavings, it scrubbed off the years of buildup of oil, fat, cooking spray, and whatever else that have been continually baked on in the oven, stove, and dishwasher. A little powder, a dash of water, a quick, light scrub, and...it's gone? How is that possible? What's in this stuff? I do not know, I do not care. After scrubbing my enamel stovetop in a fraction of the time with no scratches and better results, I became thoroughly convinced the contents of BKF is not of this realm. It's magic." —Bulb

    Get it from Amazon for $7.35 (also available in packs of two and three).

    19. Or! A bottle of Bar Keepers Friend soft cleanser that can remove tarnish, soap scum, rust, and hard-water deposits with ease. The original formula comes in a powder, but this version is premixed and ready to use!

    Read our review of the Bar Keepers Friend soft cleanser.

    Promising review: "Bar Keepers Friend should really be called 'Homeowner's Magician'! I purchased this cleanser in an attempt to revive our stainless-steel knife set, which is a great moderately priced set that has seen better days, and I'm extremely happy that I did. The cleanser not only took away the rust spots with minimal difficulty, but it returned them to their original luster! After cleaning our knives, I gave it a shot on our porcelain sink, which I typically have to douse in bleach cleaner to remove the stains from, causing the entire kitchen to be filled with noxious fumes...and it worked beautifully! The stains came clean, and it made the sink look pretty enough to eat off of." —Kat Ferrari

    Get it from Amazon for $8.75+ (also available in a pack of two).

    20. A tennis shoe cleaner to fool everyone into thinking you got some brand-new kicks for the season. In reality, they're just the same ones you've been shamelessly wearing since high school.

    Promising review: "I have had my Nike Roshe runs for about a year now, and I don't go easy on them. I play sports and run in the dirt with them all the time, but I also like to wear them for fashion purposes. Pink Miracle helped restore my daily shoes to look like I just bought them — now I can wear them for even longer. Very pleased with Pink Miracle, I will buy it again when I run out of my bottle." —Romario

    Get it from Amazon for $18.97+ (available in two sizes).

    21. An all-natural oven scrub made with gritty pumice stone so you can really go to town on that pizza that exploded and left a mess everywhere. It'll even clean all the hard-to-reach spots on your racks and oven door that you usually overlook.

    22. A cord-managing box to cover the unsightly, tangled mess of cords under your desk and make you feel like the productive professional you pretend to be.

    23. A heavy-duty pumice cleaning stone to cut through hard water rings and calcium buildup, because your porcelain throne should always be clean and sparkly.

    24. An electric fabric shaver that'll get your cozy sweaters back in shape for the fall. It also works on couches, car upholstery, and just about any fabric that's seen better days.

    25. A carpet cleaner to clean up everything from spaghetti mishaps in the living room to coffee spills in your car. If only Kevin had this on hand when he spilled his famous chili — actually he might be one of the 44,000 reviewers that have left a 5-star rating.

    26. Or an internet-beloved pet urine stain-removing spray that's powerful enough to tackle any accident — even ones that have been there all year long!

    27. A chain mail scrubber so you can actually clean all of the burned-on grime on your cast-iron skillets without removing the seasoning or causing damage. It's also safe for use on waffle makers, griddles, and everything else you barely bother cleaning.

    Promising review: "I cannot say enough great things about this product. We just purchased a home that has a well with very high iron content in the water. I tried everything to remove the stains from our three toilets but nothing worked. I found this product online and immediately went to Amazon. The results blew me away. I didn't have to scrub at all. I let it sit in the tank for several hours and the results floored me!" —T-urtle
