    1. A set of plastic storage containers to keep your produce tasting fresh for much longer. If you constantly find yourself tossing out strawberries you totally forgot you bought, these containers will basically pay for themselves.

    Promising review: "I wish I would have gotten these sooner. I bought strawberries for my children, and then I forgot about them. I found them in the back of the refrigerator almost TWO WEEKS later, and they were still good. The real miracle is how long it keeps zucchini. Zucchini starts to get mushy in the crisper drawer after just a few days. Again, these miracle containers have kept it fresh for close to two weeks now. I've kept cut lettuce, cut cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, cucumbers, zucchini, sliced bell peppers, strawberries, blackberries, cut jicama, and carrots in these containers. I've had fantastic results with all of them." —Laura

    2. A cold brew maker that's so easy to use and will turn your own kitchen into your new favorite (and much less expensive) coffee shop.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    Just add coarse-ground coffee into the mesh filter, pour water into the pitcher, screw the lid on (with the filter attached and submerged in the water), let it brew for 12–24 hours, and serve. You can pour it straight over ice cubes, or cut it with water or milk. Read our review of the Tayeka cold brew maker!

    Promising review: "Great cold brew system! We had been putting off getting one for so long. We have a Keurig and simply put brewed coffee in the fridge overnight. But as our Keurig seems to be dying, it was time to explore other options. I wish we had done it sooner! This system is so easy to use - add your coffee of choice and water, place it in the fridge and wait for the next day. That's it!! So easy, great tasting coffee that goes far enough for both of us. It easily fits on a shelf or the door." —Jessica M.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in two sizes and three colors).

    3. A wood polish and conditioner to bring your furniture back to life. Its magical blend of orange oil, beeswax and Brazilian carnauba oil will help to break down water spots and restore wood to its former shiny glory.

    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 that jumped up and scratched places, we also had an area that was damaged by water spots where our dog bowls were, and several other areas that were just worn from heavy traffic. This stuff was like a magic 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

    Get it from Amazon for $12.29.

    4. An Elizavecca hyaluronic acid serum that will add the perfect extra level of moisture to your routine. Serums are like the condiments of skin care — your routine is dry and lifeless without them.

    Bottle of opened hyaluronic acid serum

    Promising review: "This has been a lifesaver for the winter months! It has helped me combat dry, flaky skin, and has been a game changer in how smoothly my makeup now applies. It takes any moisturizer you have and brings it up to a whole new level. I have even noticed a lessening in lines that have started to form on my forehead and around my eyes now that I am in my late twenties. I will definitely be repurchasing." —B

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    5. A soothing post-shave cream so you can stop ingrown hairs and unsightly bumps right in their tracks. Saying goodbye to your facial and body hair shouldn't mean saying hello to razor burn.

    Frederick Benjamin

    Promising review: "Before I started using this, just about every hair follicle on my lower legs would be ingrown, irritated, or form a bump within two days after shaving. These bumps were red and itchy and painful, they would usually stick around for at least a week and would often scar. I've tried lots of different products, but this one is literally a game changer. I used it as a post shave and have used it twice daily since. I shaved five days ago and have still yet to see a single bump or have any irritation or itching. I'm ecstatic. This product will finally make it possible for me to shave more than twice a month and will save me from soooo much pain and scarring. 10/10 for me." —Erin

    Frederick Benjamin is a Black-owned beauty brand based in New York.

    Get it from Ulta or Frederick Benjamin for $18.

    6. A waterproof concealer to add some serious coverage while still letting your natural beauty shine through. It features bamboo stem extract to smooth the look of pores and raspberry seed oil for a dose of antioxidants.

    Bare Minerals

    Promising review: "I have dry, textured under eyes with dark circles, and I was hoping this product would give me coverage without looking dry or crepe-y. It delivered! Almost every time I use concealer it's this one. The shade match is perfect for my skin, and I can use it under eyes and elsewhere on my face. A few pats with a damp beauty sponge blends it perfectly into my skin." —LabG

    Get it from Bare Minerals for $25 (available in 15 shades).

    7. A memory foam seat cushion and lumbar pillow that's so comfortable and supportive you'll barely even miss your couch during the workday.

    Reviewer photo of lumbar pillow and seat cushion on office chair

    The cover is removable and washable.

    Promising review: "I am now using my memory foam seat cushion with the lumbar pillow, they perfectly complete each other and transformed my old office chair into a premium orthopedic chair sold in ergonomic furniture stores. The lumbar pillow supports my posture and the seat cushion relieves sitting pain. I don't think I can ever go back to sitting long hours without these two. Planning on getting a second set for my dad as a Father's Day gift." —Mario

    Get them from Amazon: the lumbar pillow for $22.05 and the seat cushion for $25.45.

    8. A washable and reusable microfiber cloth that erases makeup with just the use of water — because 2021 is the time to say goodbye to disposable makeup wipes.

    Model using makeup eraser to remove lipstick

    Promising review: "I purchased this based on some positive reviews, and they can't even touch how amazing this product is. When I purchased this product, I did so because I was tired of using mascara removers and washing my face and still having mascara or makeup on a makeup pad while swiping toner on my face. Well, that problem is now gone. This product seriously does what it says — it erases makeup! I could not believe the way it removed my makeup the first time I used it! You use it for a week, toss it in the wash, and use it again. I was wondering how it would clean up in the laundry, and it looked brand new — no mascara was left after it went through the wash. It is amazing and if you're considering purchasing it — do it! No more chemicals to remove that makeup!" —StaceyB

    Get it from Amazon for $20.

    This is our mid-priced pick for the best makeup remover at BuzzFeed Reviews!

    9. A bottle of Bar Keepers Friend soft cleanser so you 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!


    One reviewer said it even removed permanent marker. Check out our full review of Bar Keepers Friend!

    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 a two-pack from Amazon for $24.99.

    10. A convenient sprayable body oil that gives you tons of moisture without all the mess. It'll become a must in your post-shower routine.

    Model holding Glossier Body Hero mist

    Promising review: "My skin gets really flaky and dry in the winter, especially my legs, and the dry oil has done a great job of eliminating flakes entirely and restoring moisture and glow. As advertised, it absorbs *very* quickly – I have zero minutes to spare during my morning routine but I can throw this on after my shower and get dressed immediately without it transferring to my clothes." —Kathryn

    Get it from Glossier for $28.

    11. An exfoliating body scrub that's packed with scrubby sugar granules to slough away all that dead winter skin and coconut oil so you'll be moisturized and glowing by the time spring rolls around.

    Zanda Beauty/Etsy

    Promising review: "Very nice product. Does a really nice job of exfoliating my skin and leaving it soft and silky. I love the minty scent which makes me feel very calm and rested." —hshierry

    Zanda Beauty is a black-owned, woman-owned Etsy shop based in New York.

    Get it from Zandra Beauty on Etsy for $20.99.

    12. A pair of Colourpop false lashes that are super easy to apply and bring just the right amount of drama to your look.


    Promising review: "I don't really like dramatic lashes but these lashes are really pretty and fit well with my eyes. I thought these would be too dramatic but they are not and I fell in love with them!!" —Sara

    Get it from Colourpop for $8 (available in 11 styles).

    13. A 7-in-1 Instant Pot because, yes, it actually lives up to the hype. Whether you're slow cooking your favorite soup or looking to whip up some homemade yogurt, this magical pot does it all.


    It's a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, sauté pan, yogurt maker, and food warmer all rolled into one nifty appliance. Read our full review of the Instant Pot!

    Promising review: "This is quite possibly the coolest, most versatile kitchen gadget I’ve ever owned. I love it so much that I’ve purchased two more for friends and relatives. What can it do? I think the real question is 'What can’t it do?' I truly believe you could replace every cooking appliance (including your oven and stove top) and do EVERYTHING in the Instant Pot. I purchased two sizes for my own use: the three-quart (which is my almost-every-day workhorse for two person dishes) and the eight-quart (which I bring out to handle my dinner party dishes). Everything I’ve tried has been fabulous. In the realm of kitchen appliances, there is no better investment than the Instant Pot. Highly recommended!!!" —Stereoman

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99+ (available in three sizes).

    14. An eye cream to brighten those dark circles in just seven days thanks to powerful ingredients like elderberry flower extract and glycogen.

    Bottles of Ren Brightening Dark Circle Eye Cream

    Promising review: "Really soothing eye cream, I’ve been suffering with very dry and tight skin around my eyes this winter and the cream has been a miracle worker. Fine lines appear less apparent due to the hydration and the cream rubs in well with no residue." —Sophie N.

    Get it from Ren for $49.

    15. A waterproof eyeliner stamp that helps you achieve the impossible: creating the perfect winged liner on the very first try.


    One side is a winged stamp and the other side is a regular eyeliner pen.

    Promising review: "This product is amazing. Seriously. Not only does it make PERFECT wings, but I have pretty small eyes that squinch up when I smile, laugh, etc., which is super annoying because my eyeliner is always smudged. These pens though — not a sign of smudging at all. Buy it." —Tara Doyle Robinson

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97 (available in four sizes and two colors).

    16. A creamy hair wash with argan oil for some extra moisture and lemon tea tree oil for a gentle cleanse, making it perfect for curl types 3a–4c. It's basically like a sensitive skin facial cleanser, but for your hair!


    Promising review: "Smells amazing and leaves my 3b/3c hair feeling airy and moisturized. Not to mention it smells amazing. I also was able to use it on my toddler and she has 4c hair and it worked just as well!" —Asiaxxiii

    Bread Beauty Supply is a black-owned, woman-owned hair care brand based in Australia.

    Buy it from Bread Beauty Supply and Sephora for $20.

    17. A pair of shaping skinny jeans so stretchy and comfortable they're bound to become a permanent part of your work-from-home wardrobe.


    Promising review: "This shaping style is great for us people that need a little lift here and there! I've always been on the thinner side with not much of a back side and these shaping jeans give me a boost in the back end! I would definitely recommend this style of Levi's for anyone that's looking for comfort and a bit of a boost!" —Terbear968

    Get it from Levi's for $59.50 (available in waist sizes 24-34 and length sizes 28-34 and six colors. Also available in plus sizes 14S-26L in four colors).

    18. A pack of cleaning tablets because your dishwasher is probably way dirtier than you imagine. These will break down lime and mineral build-up so your dishes come out looking as sparkly as they do in all those dish soap commercials.

    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 just not getting clean. Then I saw a product test review for Affresh in Good Housekeeping magazine. I was ordering some stuff from Amazon anyway, so I added that to my order. 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 am amazed!" —Sheila

    Get a nine-pack from Amazon for $11.87.

    19. A hair finishing stick to keep flyaways and cowlicks at bay, which will be especially handy when you're in a hurry.

    Promising review: "I have super fine hair with lots of breakage. No matter how I put my hair up I have bad flyaways. This stuff is great! So easy and it stays better and looks smoother than stiff hairspray." —Jill Stilfield

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98.

    20. All-natural bottle cleaning tablets to help remove stains and odors from any water bottles or coffee tumblers that you've left unwashed for an embarrassingly long time. It happens.

    Reviewer photo of before, during, and after results of using bottle cleaning tablets

    These are biodegradable and odor-free.

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug — I tried everything. A bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY, without even scrubbing. They look brand-new. What a magical product. No weird smell or taste afterward, either. I liked it so much I used it on another HydroFlask I use primarily to hold my Bloody Mary mix in the fridge. I couldn't put anything else in it because it would always taste like spicy tomato juice. Bottle Bright to the rescue! No residual smell or taste anymore. AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING." —Amazon Customer

    Get a 12-pack from Amazon for $8.

    21. A clay mask designed to soak up excess oil and wash off the bacteria that causes breakouts, so it's basically a must if you've been dealing with maskne lately.

    Promising review: "So far this has been a great product. I've only been using it for a month, but I like what it's doing for my skin and how my skin feels after using it." —shallor mcdonald

    Bolden is a black-owned, woman-owned skin care brand.

    Get it from Amazon for $18.49.

    22. A popular nightly face serum that uses retinol to recharge and reboot your skin cells for a glowing complexion — so be prepared to take all the selfies.


    Promising review: "I have sensitive skin and this retinol has been great! Application is smooth and no irritation." —Toth

    Get it from No7 for $36.99.

    23. A pack of multipurpose dermaplaning razors you can use to shape your eyebrows and remove fine hairs. You can also use it to remove any stubborn peach fuzz so your foundation will glide on more seamlessly than ever.


    Promising review: "I used to pay a professional to dermaplane my face once a month to remove the peach fuzz, which makes me look older and makes the makeup application more cumbersome. I searched for years for a home product to use to save money and time. This is the closest I have been able to get to professional dermaplaning in the convenience of my home, on my time/schedule, and at a fraction of the price. Love it!" —SEM1969

    Get a three-count from Amazon for $4.99.

    24. Anti-chafe lace bands to keep your thighs feeling smooth and comfortable when you're walking around all day.

    A reviewer wearing the black lace bands on their thighs

    Promising review: "These are fantastic! I work overnight and wear dresses regularly to the office, I've been using the deodorant style anti-chafing rubs and wanted a longer lasting option. Ding Ding ladies!! This is it! So comfortable I fell asleep in them! No marks, no uncomfortable 'digging in.'

    They do take some fine tuning to make sure that they don't roll, but once you find that spot, they don't move! I got the lacy ones and they are sexy and soft to the touch with the silicone on the top and bottom." —A. Spencer

    Get them from Amazon for $18.95+ (available in sizes S–3XL and 17 colors).

    25. A lightweight and cruelty-free eye primer that will turn your eyelids into the perfect canvas for your favorite eye shadow palette.

    Before and after photos of a reviewer's eye makeup at 6:30 am and 8:30 pm. There is hardly any creasing

    Promising review: "This stuff is the bomb! I have super oily eyelids and work 12-hour shifts. This keeps my shadow from creasing for at least 10 hours. You don't need a lot of it, as stated in other reviews." —C. Kemp

    Get it from Amazon for $13.48.

    26. A set of monogrammed towels designed to remove stubborn makeup and resist pesky stains, because you shouldn't have to ruin your towels just to wash your face.

    Promising review: "These adorable makeup remover towels were such a hit with my friend. I got them for her for her birthday - she's a huge makeup person and always goes through a ton of those disposable wipes. I got her these because they are better for the environment and they're so darn cute - she loved them!" —Melissa S.

    Read our review of the Migrastil headache relief stick!

    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 $11.99.

    28. A highly-rated bra that ditches the wire but doesn't skimp on support or comfort. It's made of super-soft modal fabric, so you'll probably forget you're even wearing it.


    Promising review: "I loved buying my first bras from Lively and am now a loyal customer!! Their virtual consultations are awesome and I even got a follow-up to make sure the fit was right. Their customer service is beyond expectations, much like their product! Lots of styles and fits to choose from, comfy fabrics, stylish and flattering. I really liked the fit of the All Day Deep-V No Wire and will be purchasing more in the other colors!" —Emily

    Get it from Lively for $35 (available in sizes 32A–38DD and three colors).

    29. A jewelry cleaning pen so you can bring the bling back to your rings and other accessories without spending a fortune on a professional cleaning.

    Promising review: "This is the best little impulse buy I have ever made! I'm shocked, actually. In less than a minute, I opened the package and I was in the process of cleaning my wedding ring with ease. I typically clean my ring weekly at home, so I did not expect to see immediate results in the form of gray grime residue left on the cleaning bristles! After a quick rinse and dry with an ordinary hand towel, my ring looked the best it ever has after an at-home cleaning. The diamonds shoot sparkles and reflect colors beautifully. Only my jeweler makes it look better! Another bonus: the brushes are soft and flexible enough that they get into tiny nooks and crannies and will be effective with chains and pendants with a lot of grooves and small stones. You cannot go wrong with this purchase." —MrsReading

    Get it from Amazon for $6.96.

    30. Pimple patches that use tea tree and calendula oil to get rid of breakouts overnight. Just pop one on before you head to bed and that pesky pimple will be a distant memory in the morning.


    Promising review: "These little patches are outstanding. They work just as advertised. This is the first acne product that worked just as I hoped. Put the patch on an annoying blemish at night and in the morning, there will be white gunk on that tiny little patch. Brilliant!! No downside to this product. Does not cause drying or flaking." —Robin V.

    Get a 36-pack from Amazon for $12.50.

    31. An extremely absorbent Aquis microfiber body towel so you can dry off quickly and get dressed right away. If you've ever used a microfiber hair towel, this is basically a giant version of that!

    Model using white microfiber body towel.

    Promising review: "I've been using the smaller 'hair drying' version of this towel for years but somehow it never occurred to me to look for a larger version...until a shoulder injury made manipulating thick, heavy bath towels difficult and sometimes painful. I'm so glad I finally thought of it! These towels not only solve the shoulder discomfort problem, they are actually more absorbent than regular bath towels. They fold easily to hang on the towel rack and they dry out quickly. I think they have a classic look. And they take up less space in my small linen closet. I'll be gradually donating my old bath towels to the local humane society and replacing them with this type. Best purchase I've made in a long time." —Sally M.

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99 (available in three colors).

    32. Charcoal-filled shoe deodorizers that will save your stinky flats and revive your rain-drenched sneakers.

    I own and swear by these little charcoal bags — read my full review!

    Here's an excerpt: "I then tried them on another three-year-old pair of flats that had not been smelling the best since, well, three years ago. After one day, it no longer smelled like anything. And keep in mind that I’m using the same pair of bags back to back!

    The product description says the bags are reusable for up to two years; you simply air them out in the sun to rejuvenate 'em once in a while. I’ve been using the same pair now for six months, and they’re still highly effective." —Yi Yang

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $9.95.

    33. Coty Airspun loose face power to keep your makeup looking matte and flawless all day long. It's basically FaceTune in a portable package.


    Promising review: "It's perfect!!! It comes with so much product, and the puff it comes with is pretty handy. The application is smooth. My makeup came out flawless. I set my makeup with this and worked out right after. THERE WAS NO SEPARATION, NO CREASING. This powder blessed me. GOD BLESS." —andrea

    Get it from Amazon for $5.97 (available in five shades and various pack sizes).

    34. A purple shampoo that will keep blonde hair from looking brassy and might even extend your time in between salon visits.

    Reviewer photo showing results of using the purple shampoo on blonde hair

    Promising review: "I have bleached blonde hair that loves to go brassy. I can’t stand brassy/yellow blonde (on me). If you are looking for icy blonde to platinum, this is the shampoo for you. It completely removes all yellow from my hair. My friends are always asking me how I get this silvery blonde. Well, this is the secret. The trick is to wet your hair, put the shampoo on with as little agitation as possible (put it on like a conditioner, don’t let it lather), leave it for about five minutes (or however long it takes to wash your body and a quick shave), and then rinse. I use it about two times a week and it keeps my blonde PERFECT. I’ve tried every purple shampoo on the market (almost) and this is THE BEST. All of my blonde friends use it now." —T. Lubben

    Get it from Amazon for $8.90+ (available in three sizes).

    35. A Maybelline Dark Circles Treatment Concealer for when you need to fool everyone into thinking you got a full night's sleep, when in reality you were just rewatching Bridgerton for the hundredth time.

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

    Read our review of the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer (#4 on the list)!

    Here's an excerpt: "I still don’t know how a $7 tube of concealer (I use the Neutralizer shade) beats out the more expensive ones I have stuffed into my vanity, but it does. It’s not too creamy or thick, yet it still gives solid coverage without the cake-y feeling.

    When I am done with my entire routine, my eyes look lighter and brighter, but not in a way that’s totally obvious — even when photos are taken and the flash is on. Basically what I am saying here is this is a staple beauty product that, IMHO, deserves a place in every makeup bag!" —Kayla Suazo (BuzzFeed Shopping & Products editor)

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98 (available in 18 shades).

    36. A matte lipstick in a shade of brown-nude that's so versatile you'll want to reach for it all the time — though you won't need to because it's so long-lasting.

    Beauty Pie

    Promising review: "Bought this to try out as an addition to my nude lipstick collection and absolutely loved it! The color suits my complexion perfectly, and it gives a long lasting and wearable finish. It is a comfortable lipstick and doesn’t dry out your lips.... amazing value!!!" —Amanda

    Get it from Beauty Pie for $25 (also available in 13 other colors).

    37. A honeycomb organizer that will keep your drawers from becoming an endless black hole of socks and underwear.

    Reviewer photo showing results of using honeycomb organizer in drawer

    This can be trimmed to fit your drawers.

    Promising review: "Okay, admittedly, I am a bit of an organization freak. I purchased two of these organizers (yes, you do need two PER drawer) to organize my underwear drawer. I agree that $20 seems like a lot to pay for a few pieces of plastic to organize a drawer no one else really sees, but... it's totally worth it. The gratification I got from being able to see exactly what I had, neatly organized, easy to find... Wow. I definitely recommend this product. And the actual dividers are well-made and super easy to assemble. As a previous reviewer said, the number of times you will look at your drawer and be totally satisfied makes the price well worth it." —Brigette

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    38. A tube of clump-free and and cruelty-free mascara for when you need the look of false lashes but simply don't have the time to fumble around with lash glue.

    Reviewer photo showing results of using mascara

    Promising review: "I never write reviews for things, but this mascara was just so great I felt like I had to! I love lashes, and my friends are used to me wearing thick coats of mascara at all times. Despite this, I got complimented on my lashes basically every time I wore this mascara this week. Multiple people even asked if I had extensions! This mascara isn't clumpy at all, and makes your lashes super long and defined without sticking them together. I've never had any problems with flaking, and although it isn't waterproof, I've definitely used eyedrops, shed a tear, and gotten stuck in rain without them smudging or running down my face. All in all this is my new holy grail mascara, and I'm thrilled!!" —Sophie Johnson

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95 (available in two colors).

    39. An electric egg cooker that can whip up all kinds of eggs in mere minutes, because breakfast should be as quick and easy as possible.

    Dash rapid egg cooker placed on counter with deviled eggs on plate

    It can make hard-boiled eggs, soft-boiled eggs, poached eggs, scrambled eggs, and individual omelets.

    Promising review: "I bought this egg cooker for the first time a year and a half ago, and it is awesome. I hate having a single-purpose appliance in my kitchen, but this is worth it. Making hard-boiled eggs was always hit or miss for me, even if it was timed perfectly. (I admit I forgot about the eggs more than once!) This cooker makes PERFECT eggs every single time, to the exact hardness I desire with no green ring on the yolk. Even better, the shell slides off without taking half the egg white with it! My favorite use is to pop some eggs in when I get home and prep a salad. By the time the salad is ready, the eggs are done. I can even leave the kitchen and still hear when they are done because of the buzzer. I've purchased five more of them for family for Christmas this year and can't wait to get everyone on board the Dash Go Egg Cooker train!" —A. M. Hinshaw

    Promising review: "One bathroom in an apartment just isn't enough for two adults with a healthy colon. Enter Poo-Pourri. It is very fresh and not overpowering. It is not synthetic smelling. With most room sprays, you end up just smelling flowery poo. This masks the smell completely. I can walk in the bathroom 30 seconds after my boyfriend and only smell lemon." —Allison H

    Read our review of the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel moisturizer!

    Promising review: "This is the moisturizer I have been waiting for my whole life. I have tried moisturizers from what feels like every brand — from the drugstore to the high-end expensive stuff at Sephora. This stuff feels incredible on my skin — it feels like a relief to put it on. It's not even remotely greasy, absorbs almost instantly, and has the lightest, cleanest fragrance. Other heavier moisturizers left me with tiny clusters of new blemishes every morning, but this hasn't clogged my pores at all, and my skin feels soft and plump. I also use this moisturizer to cut my CC cream/foundation to make it lighter. LOVE!" —meems

    42. Pantene Rescue Shots to give your hair a dose of intense moisture while repairing damage and smoothing split ends.,

    Promising review: "My hair was processed and damaged, my husband would say that it feels like a straw bale. This little ampule changed my life. After one use, my hair was soft as silk, shiny, and manageable. It was completely unreal how this product transformed my hair and I knew I had to find more. I bought two boxes on Amazon and will continue to use this religiously. For something so inexpensive, it is a game changer. I now have my friends on the Rescue train and they are just as impressed." —melissa michael

    Promising review: "I tend to shy away from spicy foods, but I couldn’t resist the opportunity to try a new condiment to liven up snacks and recipes with. I was afraid the spice would be overpowering, but it’s actually quite mellow and smooth; just the right touch of heat. So far, I’ve enjoyed this on fruit salad (banana/strawberry/blueberry) with cottage cheese and drizzled on the original Chick-fil-A delicious!" —Tiger Paws

    Promising review: "These surprised me. I avoid plastic for many reasons, but I gave these a shot because they were on sale and the reviews were strong. I bought a second set at regular price because I like them so much. The top clicks closed securely. I've never had leaks despite bringing soups and salsa and the like with me for lunch. They work very well in the freezer. The little vents that are hidden under the locks were a pleasant surprise. It makes microwaving that much easier." —V

    Promising review: "Great product. I mix Bragg Raw Apple Cider Vinegar with my Aztec Secret Indian Bentonite Healing Clay for my facial masks (instead of mixing water with the clay). After the facial, my pores are totally clean, and they seem to disappear. My skin also tightens and takes on a youthful glow. The results last for about a week or a little longer." —Gloria

    Promising review: "MIRACLE PRODUCT!!! If you have dandruff, flaky scalp, scabs, etc... BUY THIS! I was about to go to the dermatologist if this stuff didn’t work. Thank goodness I saved myself hundreds of dollars by giving this product a shot. I used it four to five times (over a month), and it cleared my scalp almost completely. One more use and my scalp will be 120% healed! This stuff blew my mind. Totally worth it." —chris

    48. A carpet cleaner so you can tackle everything from spaghetti mishaps to coffee spills in your car. If only Kevin had this on hand when he spilled his famous chili.

    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 Bissel carpet cleaner for some crazy good cleaning power. I’ve become that weird lady that goes around singing the praises of a cleaning product. No regrets." —L. Logan

    51. A TubShroom so you can stop hair in its tracks before it even has time to clog your drain. Wave goodbye to standing in a puddle of water every time you shower!

    Model holding TubShroom with hair wrapped around the bottom

    Promising review: "I was skeptical about this little rubber strainer, but I needed something to save my drains from the piles of hair that fall out of my head. This thing is amazing! It fit into my standard drain perfectly, and I don't think a single hair slipped by it. It was pretty gross to see how much hair I lost in just one shower, but it was comforting to know it wasn't clogging my drain. Clean up is super easy, too. I just took a tissue and wiped it from top to bottom, grabbing all the hair as the soft rubber strainer released it all easily. Not a hair was caught in it. Best strainer I've ever had." —Lawyer For Justice

    Promising review: "I use this as my first step in my double cleanse! It smells of fresh essential oils, the consistency is buttery and melts well in the fingertips, and the makeup melts right off! I follow with a gentle cleanser and it takes the balm and makeup right off. My skin does not feel stripped but nourished." —Traci
