    40 Products That Reviewers Say They Use Every Day

    Just a bunch of stuff that's guaranteed to come in handy, like, all the time.

    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. An under-cabinet lid opener if you live alone, have mobility issues, or pickle and pasta sauce jars just so happen to be your mortal, hand-cramping enemy.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    It comes with peel-and-stick adhesive strips and three screws for installation!

    Promising review: "Love this! Makes life a little easier every day! I love this so much, I bought two more for my sisters. We are all over 60, but I wish I had one since 40 years ago, it's that great. No more banging jars on the floor, or looking for pliers to get a bottle open. I had to install a piece of wood under my upper cabinet to attach it properly, but other than that the install was easy. Highly recommend this product to everyone!" —Happy Camper22

    Get it from Amazon for $13.95.

    2. And a pack of DenTek slim brushes to keep stashed in your bag for post-mealtime meetings you'd really rather not attend with a piece of lettuce stuck in your teeth.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Have never had a dentist say my gums looked healthy until I started to use this product every day. This is an awesome product I've loved adding to my dental care!" —Emma

    3. A plastic-free food wrap made from biodegradable cotton and beeswax that can be used to store leftovers or take food on the go. Just rinse it with cold water when you're done and it's good to be reused for up to a year.

    Amazon

    Beeswax wrap is great! I personally don't use it as a lid for bowls of leftovers (I would rather transfer it to a food storage container), but it's really great if you have half a vegetable left over, or a hunk of cheese you need to wrap up. The heat from your hands softens the wrap and makes it stick to itself like cling wrap, but it's reusable! When you're done just rinse it off with cool water and let it dry.

    Promising review: "I have one set, and I have used it constantly and washed it every day and it works great. I have only had it for two weeks, but I ordered two more sets to make sure I always have enough. If it turns out to be very short lasting, I will try to remember to come back and post a review about it. For now, I really love it, and so do my friends and family." —SouthernNYCMelle

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $18.

    4. A nonstick Dash mini griddle for easily whipping up delicious single servings of eggs, pancakes, and a lot more without the need for multiple pots and pans. Dorm dwellers and RV campers will particularly enjoy its teeny tiny size and easy plug-in functionality.

    amazon.com

    It heats up within minutes, and both top and bottom are nonstick!

    Promising review: "When I first saw this, I thought you have to be kidding... I love all Dash products, and this is no exception. It makes the best grilled cheese sandwich ever, bread toasts evenly, cheese is melted and gooey, just like a grilled cheese should be. Now, it sits on my kitchen counter and I use it every day. Great little grill." —AP47

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in six colors).

    5. A water tumbler so you can turn every day hydration into a high-stakes game! And by high-stakes I mean it comes with colorful bands to track each time you finish the bottle. It's a fun way to celebrate those small hydration wins throughout the day!

    Samantha Wieder / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    This 20-ounce bottle is made of durable BPA-free plastic and is top-rack dishwasher safe. But don't stick it in the microwave!

    Promising review: "My husband thought it was ridiculous to spend $17 on a water bottle, but I have used it every single day since I bought it and he has conceded that it was a good purchase. I went from drinking hardly any water to more than 100 ounces per day and as a breastfeeding mom, it is essential to keep hydrated. I used to use apps on my phone but I would always forget to update them. Easy to clean, however, I use mine strictly for water. I don't know that cleaning the straw would be as easy if was putting anything else in there. The only thing I am worried about is losing a band, which I haven't yet after four months!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.54+ (available in two colors).

    6. These natural bamboo oil-blotting sheets because what's better than sucking up the excess oil making a daily appearance on your face and then literally throwing it in the trash and forgetting it ever happened?

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Love these so much!!! Honestly, I've struggled with an oily face my whole life and these face tissues are life-changing. I use them every day and they don't mess up my makeup at all. It's super tiny and easy to take with me. I went ahead and purchased the two-pack so I can keep one in my work bag and one in my school bag. So happy with these!" —Breanna Warren

    Get 100 sheets from Amazon for $6.95.

    7. A patented pet hair remover if the amount of adhesive rollers you're going through is getting out of hand. This roller uses bristles, not sticky tape, to catch lint, meaning you can clean and reuse it over and over and over again.

    amazon.com

    Because it doesn't rely on adhesive paper, you only have to buy it once and can use it forever — cleaning the hair off the brush when it gets clogged, of course!

    Promising reviews: "I have a multi-pet household, some with long hair some short, and my couch is a magnet for hair! I’ve spent hours with pet vacuum attachments and lint rollers and they all fail. This tool in five minutes cleaned all the hair off with ease! I was so impressed I did the decorative pillows and then moved on to every soft surface in my house! It’s really a game changer!!! You need to be quite aggressive with it or it’s just not going to work! My one issue is the button that opens the chamber where the hair and lint collect is exactly where I put my thumb for leverage when using it so the top pops open from time to time. It may be just me and how I’m holding it! I would still buy it again and have been using it every day for a clean couch!" —manypaws

    Get one from Amazon for $24.95.

    8. A pack of refillable K-Cups you can fill with your favorite morning coffee brew to save loads of money (and plastic).

    amazon.com

    These BPA-free plastic cups are designed to work in any Keurig brewer, old or new!

    Promising review: "Been using for around two months EVERY DAY. So far, it has been working super duper well. I drink about three to four cups of coffee a day, after grinding the beans (four scoops, medium grind, do NOT do super fine grind), it fills exactly four pods! I store three in a zip lock bag to avoid too much air exposure. Drops straight into Keurig and works just like a normal pod. The mesh holds the coffee ground back — I haven't had any issues. Definitely recommend. Feels like I've been saving the environment after giving up the one-time use Keurig pods." —matt ding

    Get two from Amazon for $7.95.

    9. These microfiber makeup-remover cloths that are shockingly effective at wiping away even your darkest smoky eye look with JUST WATER! It can't get much simpler than that, folks.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Throw 'em in your washing machine to clean them up so you can use them again and again!

    Promising review: "I can't say enough good things about these. I've tested them for several months now and love them. I have very sensitive skin and these do not irritate my skin at all. I literally use one every day and have washed them sooo many times and they are like new every time!! I can't say enough good things about them." —Elisha Ward

    Get a pack of five from Amazon for $7.49 (available in three styles).

    10. A bottle of Tend Skin Solution for literally anyone who shaves or waxes to keep ingrown hairs and razor bumps at bay when applied post hair removal.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was very surprised by how well this product works. I’ve been using it once a day every day for the past month and it really has made a difference. Exfoliating wasn’t enough for my skin and I don’t like to sit there pulling out my ingrown hairs. It smells like alcohol but I was very surprised by how it leaves my skin. It does not dry it out, leaves it moisturized and my ingrowns have been reducing." —Krystle

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    11. A stainless-steel foot file so you treat your feet on the regular and scrape off all that dried, cracked skin keeping you from being the foot model you were always born to be.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I keep this in my shower and give my soles and heels a quick rasp every day. It really keeps the calluses/dead skin under control with almost no effort. I've had it for almost a year now and it hasn't rusted or anything in the shower. I've never accidentally hurt myself in any way with it. Tip: If you're starting with significant calluses (or whatever condition you're addressing), don't expect to get rid of it all in one day. Work on it a little every day for several days. Also, don't apply a whole lot of pressure to it, or you'll just grate your healthy skin off. Instead, gently but firmly rasp areas that need it." —Lo

    Get it from Amazon for $8.95.

    12. A posture corrector because you've probably spent the last year hunched over your less-than-ideal WFH setup and your spine might be suffering for it. Wear this brace for an hour or two every day to start gaining the muscle memory to self-correct your posture even when not wearing it!

    A before and after reviewer photo showing a profile view of an individual standing and another photo of the same individual wearing the posture corrector with their shoulders pulled back
    amazon.com

    This unisex brace is designed for a chest circumference ranging from 27–42 inches.

    Promising review: "I suffer from horrible back pains and admittedly I have horrible posture from sitting at a computer eight hours a day. I started wearing this posture corrector for the last week and already feel better about my posture. In the beginning, it felt weird wearing this corrector, but over time I got used to it and now wear it every day under my clothes. I no longer feel like I need to crack my back every time I get up from my desk. I highly recommend this posture corrector if you suffer from horrible posture." —Jerie H.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.49.

    13. A 3D mouth bracket if mouthfuls of face mask fabric are really harshing the vibe every time you have the audacity to try and breath while wearing one.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I don’t like anything about having to wear face masks! That said. It’s something I do. Breathing in them has been hard — I breathe the fabric in. It gets in my mouth when I speak. I sound muffled. And my glasses are forever fogging up! So out of desperation, I bought these. All those past complaints are solved! It does collect condensation when being used, but that’s no big whoop. Especially when it works so well. I gave one to a friend to try out and she is an essential worker who has to wear a mask for very long periods of time every day. She tells me this face mask guard has been a game-changer for her and she uses it all the time she wears her face masks 😷" —Missy fonnesbeck

    Get a set of five from Amazon for $9.99.

    14. An extra-large bath sheet made from 100% muslin that'll actually get softer every time you wash it. It's lightweight and moisture-wicking, meaning it's as good at drying you off as it is drying itself. No more funky towel stench.

    Muslin Comfort

    Muslin Comfort is a woman-owned small biz based in California. After her own experience with post-partum night sweats (and becoming increasingly jealous of her son's breathable muslin blanket), Shyla created an adult-sized prototype and hasn't turned back since, expanding into designing other high-quality home linen essentials out of muslin.

    Promising review: "Purchased a pair of these towels a few months ago and have NOT used another bath towel since! These are without a doubt the BEST towels I've ever owned. Every time I shower I get excited about getting to dry off with this towel. It's not super thick and heavy, but also not thin and flimsy. It's the perfect weight and perfect size. These towels are HUGE and that's what I like. I fold them in half just to fit it on the towel bar, and the first time my husband used it he didn't even realize it was folded and still commented on how big it was lol! They also dry quickly. But they are so comfortable I wish I could wear it all day. Please make a hooded bathrobe with this material and I would buy it immediately! Ugh, these are so good. I wish I had 100 of them!" —Maya S.

    Get it from Muslin Comfort for $79.99 (available in five colors).

    15. The ever-reliable O'Keeffe's Working Hands cream for anyone whose dry, cracked hands need something a little stronger than the average moisturizer. This famous formula locks in moisture, while creating a protective barrier to prevent future moisture loss.

    amazon.com

    For best results, you should apply the cream after washing your hands, after showering, and at bedtime.

    Promising review: "This stuff is awesome! I use it every day after I shower and I'm getting ready for work. I used to have really dry knuckles and spots on my hands and fingers, but since I've been using this stuff I've had none of that. I really hate greasy feeling lotions and this stuff is not greasy at all. It doesn't take much to rub into your hands, and just like the package says 'a little goes a long way.' It doesn't really have any kind of smell to it either, which is great. If you have dry hands or knuckles, you have to try this stuff." —Chris S

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    16. A stainless-steel strainer and saucer set so you can easily indulge in tasty loose leaf teas and make your daily tea time a little more eco-friendly in the process.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    I started drinking more loose leaf tea as a way to cut down on the waste of tea bags (It's also more delicious IMO, which doesn't hurt). I settled on a two-pack of these strainers after another, more cutesy strainer ball left me choking back a mouthful of tea leaves when prepping one of my finer rooibos teas. These have been great for close to two years now. I love that they hook onto the mug and come with a little saucer to set the strainer on when it's finished steeping.

    Promising review: "I use this every day one to two times a day. It is great. I use it for both coffee and tea. It is a perfect size to keep the loose-leaf tea in while allowing proper water flow through the leaves. Do not pack it too full as the tea leaves will expand. After five months, I still don't have any rust, and I'm not the best at cleaning them after use. Sometimes I do not clean until the next day. Still no signs of rust or damage. The top is sturdy and does not come off or cross-thread. It is easy to clean with a little soap. I have not damaged any holes or dented it at all. My mom loved them so much while she was visiting I purchased a second set to give to her." —S.R.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    17. A compact countertop sweep and squeegee set because keeping your countertops clean and crumb-free is a daily battle, and you could use some backup.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    I am baffled how much I enjoy this little brush set, which I absolutely use every day if not more than once a day. I don't have the type of edgeless sink that can really utilize how genius the squeegee is (but it's still good to redirect spills when they occur), but WOW can this thing get at crumbs! It's super compact (I just keep it tucked away in a drawer) and I am able to easily sweep crumbs off the counter without using my hands or a paper towel, which inevitably results in half the crumbs ending up on the floor, anyway. It's a small tool to have around that makes keeping the space looking and feeling cleaner with virtually no effort.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    18. A hexagon rotating timer if you have trouble focusing for long stretches and need a little help breaking up the work (or school) day into more manageable, productive chunks. Simply rotate and let the countdown until the next snack break begin!

    Yi Yang / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "Love the ease of just turning the hexagon to the amount of time you want. Kids use it every day." —Vixxen133

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in three colors).

    19. An exfoliating brush you can use as a wet or dry brush to remove dead skin, stimulate circulation, and potentially reduce the appearance of cellulite.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I literally use this dry brush EVERY SINGLE DAY. It is my best friend. I've seen a HUGE difference in my skin!!! It is EXTREMELY soft; my boyfriend compliments how soft my skin is all the time." —MC

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    20. A vitamin C serum packed with antioxidants for giving your skin its daily dose of dewy, radiant hydration. Side effects may include improved appearance of dark spots and that elusive *glow*.

    Launched in 2018, Buttah is a Black-owned business founded by Dorion Renaud after a tireless search for skincare products that could effectively address his skin's particular needs. Every gender-neutral product is cruelty-free and uses organic ingredients!

    Promising review: "Really great product! I have sensitive skin and was afraid it had a fragrance but it doesn’t. this really helped to brighten my skin tone. I use it every morning." —Bethany R.

    21. A beloved-by-the-internet detangling brush so you can glide through your luscious, kinky, curly locks *without* the usual painful pulling and tearing.

    @cravenaturals / Via instagram.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I purchased this brush three weeks ago and have used it every day. I like the brush so much I ordered three more for my adult daughters. Not only is the brush gentle on my gray hair, but it also feels like I am giving myself a head massage. Also, I appreciate the wide hand base design. I have rheumatoid arthritis and it is not always easy to grip an ordinary hair brush. Plus, the brush is easy to clean. It truly glides through my wet hair." —Alicia N Steimel

    Get it from Amazon for $12.88 (available in five colors).

    22. A popular streak-free anti-fog spray because your face mask and your glasses can't seem to get on the same page about letting you see clearly. A quick coat of this before heading out can help prevent the dreaded face mask fog when wearing eyeglasses or sunglasses.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    A heads up that this works *super* well for some reviewers, but not all — note that this is meant for lenses that don't have anti-reflective coating, and the instructions for use are very specific. To apply, spray a small amount on both sides of your lenses, and use your fingers to rub it across the whole area. Let it sit for a full minute, then wipe with a dry soft cloth. Once they're fully dry, you should be raring to go!

    Promising review: "I’m a nurse working during COVID-19. I am using this anti-fog spray every day! It really reduces the fog on my glasses that develops from wearing them in combination with my surgical mask! I just spray the front and back of the lenses and wipe them dry with my microfiber cloth. It’s easy to use every morning. An added benefit is that it cleans my glasses, lasts all day, and saves me from a lot of frustrating fog during delicate procedures! I’m so glad I found this product! Thank goodness!" —PAD

    Get it from Amazon for $10.55.

    23. A roll-on migraine stick packed with cooling essential oils if you're looking for potential drug-free relief from painful headaches and migraines that's compact enough to put in a purse or pocket!

    Reviewer holding tube shaped roll on stick
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I get pretty frequent small headaches — they’re enough to be really distracting and disorienting, but not enough that I want to pop a Tylenol all the time. I gave this a try because I was willing to try anything. I’m very skeptical about aromatherapy and oils, but I really don’t like relying on medication for pain relief if I can avoid it. I was pretty blown away by how well it worked. I don’t know if it’s an elaborate distraction that works well, but it’s worked on every headache I’ve had. It doesn’t make the headache worse like some scented products I’ve tried, but smells wonderful and soothing. I’ve started to bring it with me everywhere I go, and I use it maybe once or twice a day. I was also a bit worried it would give me acne issues, because I get zits on my temples and hairline pretty easily with a lot of products. I haven’t noticed any!" —Happy Camper

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    24. Or a reusable hot and cold therapy pack with a washable sleeve and a three-channeled insert filled with jasmine rice you can pop in the microwave or freezer to help soothe aches and pains or just unwind at the end of the day.

    Beloved Packs

    Vida launched Beloved Packs in 2016, and ever since this Black woman-owned small biz has been creating therapy packs as a way to help people combat daily stress, minor aches, and incorporate an easy self-care practice into their everyday routine.

    Promising review: "This rice pack is amazing! It really helps with eye strain headaches from increased screen time at work. It is super high quality as well. I look forward to using it every evening." —Abby J.

    Get it from Beloved Packs for $30.

    25. These produce-saver containers that'll save you money (and unecessary trips to the grocery store) by keeping produce fresher for longer with ~mystical~ ventilation technology.

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    These containers help keep your produce fresh by keeping moisture away. And they're designed with a special vent filter, which you never have to replace, to regulate the carbon dioxide and oxygen flow to your produce.

    Natalie Brown, an editor here at BuzzFeed, actually tried these containers for herself, and, well, you just gotta read her full Rubbermaid FreshWorks container review.

    Promising review: "These containers do exactly what they promise. I use them in my fridge every day for produce. They preserve without any gimmicks. The wash easily." —Mommiesalame

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $28.20.

    26. A pack of shockingly absorbent reusable Swedish dishcloths for an eco-friendly alternative to disposable sponges and paper towels. Unlike regular dishcloths, these can be sanitized in the dishwasher or microwave between uses so you know they're not harboring any unwanted germ fugitives.

    Amazon

    Use these again and again and compost them when you're done since they're made of natural cellulose and cotton.

    Promising review: "Love this little dishcloth! It’s SUPER absorbent and picks up really well. I use it in the kitchen every day to clean up countertops, sink, spills, placemats, dining table, etc. and it’s easy to wash, too. Great way to save money on paper towels." —Milica P.

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $15.12 (available in 11 styles).

    27. A length-adjustable 2-in-1 broom and squeegee with rubber bristles so you can wash windows, sweep floors, and wrangle pet hair out of the carpet without the hassle of digging out any cumbersome tools.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this damn thing. I use the squeegee side daily on a sealed concrete floor to pick up dog hair. Works like a champ, and even does a great job on edges. So easy, the hubby voluntarily sweeps with it every day, sometimes twice. I also got him an EyeVac to instantly suck all the hair and dirt up without him having to go hunt a dustpan and chase the dustpan debris line across the floor." —PA Lady

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "I was skeptical of how amazing the reviews are, but this stuff is pure gold. I used it on stretch marks on my legs, and in just a week they went from bright angry red to purple. I also rub it on my face after I wash my face, and rub it in super well — it has made my acne on my cheeks go WAY down, and is removing the scars. I have amazing skin now that I use this stuff EVERY day, and I've barely even put a dent in it. This size is amazing, and for the price — holy cow. I seriously never leave reviews, but seriously this stuff is pure magic. I tried vitamin C serum, rosehip, witch hazel, etc. and this is the only thing that has worked for me. Good luck!!" —Jessamyne Campbell

    Get it from Amazon for $8.89 (available in three sizes).

    29. Some all-natural toothpaste tabs if you're on the hunt for a plastic-free alternative to traditional tubes that leaves your mouth feeling just as fresh and clean as your conscience does when you reduce waste!

    Huppy

    Huppy is an Asian-owned small biz creating plastic-free toothpaste tablets out of sustainably and ethically sourced ingredients. Everything is vegan, GMO- and cruelty-free. Best of all? Huppy donates 2% of revenue to fund sustainability initiatives!

    As with every area of my life, I'm always looking for more eco-friendly alternatives to the things I use every day. Toothpaste was next. I was familiar with other brands making plastic-free tabs, but hadn't found one that felt adequately cost-efficient — until now! I love how zero-waste the process is with Huppy. You get a forever tin (pick from blue or blush) and then buy refills that come in compostable pouches. The whole chewing thing can be weird at first (my boyfriend found it aggressively minty, I just think they taste like Altoids) but both of us got used to it pretty quickly. With water, the tabs foam up pretty instantly, and after that, it's just a normal teeth-brushing experience. In fact, I'm actually finding that not dealing with drippy toothpaste and tiny screw-on caps is actually pretty delightful. A cleaner process both in and out of my mouth.

    Get it from Huppy for $16+ (available in two sizes and two flavors; available in subscribe and save).

    30. A pair of copper-infused arch support sleeves to help relieve heel and arch pain, increase circulation, and decrease swelling all without restricting your range of motion. They can be worn directly over your skin, just like socks!

    Promising review: "A MIRACLE!!!! I have been suffering from plantar fasciitis for about a year now. I have medical-grade insoles for all my shoes that help with the heel pain to a point. I came across these arch supports by accident and figured (on a whim) I’d give them a try. I had them on for about an hour and I suddenly realized I had ZERO FOOT PAIN!!! I actually weeped with relief. Weeks later — I still wear them every day, and still have no pain in my feet. I cannot say enough good things about these little miracles. This chef is no longer cranky with pain. Even my staff is happier that I have them 😂👍" —Julie Thigpen

    Get a pair from Amazon for $13.95.

    31. A plant-based dish and hand soap duo in a delightful linen scent that comes packaged in stylish glass bottles you can refill again and again. We all know how quickly we can fly through a bottle of hand soap these days (and how much plastic waste that creates in the process).

    L'AVANT Collective

    Launched in December 2020, L'AVANT Collective is a woman-owned small biz co-founded by Lindsay Droz and Kristi Lord, friends and mothers who wanted powerful non-toxic cleaning products that fit in with their modern home interiors and styles. So they made what they wanted, releasing a tight assortment of sustainably-minded soaps and cleaning wipes.

    L'AVANT Collective was kind enough to let me test some of their products. Now, I use them every day and am genuinely in love. I've never had the most "granola" aesthetic, despite being very keen on doing my part for the environment, so finding eco-friendly alternatives that feel a bit more modern is always a pleasant surprise to me. The bottles feel incredibly well made and like they'll last a long time. The subtle linen scent of the soap itself is ~heavenly~. I find it's just as effective as the plastic-packaged Mrs. Meyer's soaps I was using before, and have actually noticed that my hands don't feel nearly as dried out after finishing up a bout of dishes — an exciting discovery! And since they sell refills, you can always pick up your own pump bottle and fill it with this powerful plant-based formula (in recyclable packaging) for the same results. You and the planet both win!

    Get it from L'AVANT Collective for $54.

    32. A dishwasher-safe microwave splatter cover with steam vents for keeping any saucy explosions from dirtying up your microwave while containing steam for more even heating!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I know we're talking about a plate cover here, but my wife and I jokingly say it has changed our lives. OK, it hasn't really changed our lives, but it is so much easier and more effective than putting a paper towel over the plate in the microwave; cuts down on (actually, eliminates) cleanups of exploding food in the microwave; and it's easy to rinse off. It's just kind of fun when something so simple and inexpensive makes something you do every day a little bit easier." —DC

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in clear and white).

    33. A pair of blue-light–blocking glasses so when you walk away from your laptop after eight hours of work you might actually emerge without tired eyes and a headache. Sounds too good to be true, I know.

    Promising review: "I still use these every day! I bought this pair a few months ago and it has made a remarkable difference. My eye doctor recommended getting the anti-glare glasses since my eyes would get fatigued after working at a computer screen all day, every day. These Eyekeeper glasses are lightweight and have made a huge difference. I can see better at night when I leave work and I no longer have a headache by the end of the day. They are also durable and last for a long time for such a great price! I have already recommended these and will continue to do so." —JoJosModernLife

    34. A shampoo scalp massager because those fancy cure-all shampoos never could quite take care of your dandruff or psoriasis flare-ups, so it's time for a more ~physical~ approach. Use this in the shower to gently massage and exfoliate your scalp, stimulating blood flow and helping to remove irritating buildup.

    Promising review: "I have a dry scalp. Drinking tons of water, using shampoo made out of unicorn tears and conditioners harvested from Mount Olympus does nothing for it. I tried the no-poo method, massage, changing my diet, anti-dandruff shampoo, special brushes, never using heat tools, washing with cool water...I just resigned that I'd always have flakes. Enter the brush. I have sensitive skin. This brush is soft, but my scalp whined about it being too hard for a few days. I just use it gently and got used to it, because the results are PHENOMENAL. NO FLAKES. MY HAIR IS SHINY LIKE A UNICORN BUTT. THIS IS THE GREATEST HAIR TOOL IN MY ARSENAL. I use it every day to rub in and wash out my shampoo. People tell me my hair is pretty. It looks and feels healthier. For like 6 bucks?! Buy this brush!! You won't regret it." —SW

    35. A reusable cotton swab if you're not super into throwing out single-use swabs every time you need to clean your ears or touch up some smudgy makeup.

    It also comes in a LastSwab beauty version with a pointed tip for eye makeup removal.

    Promising review: "I have to clean my ears almost twice a day. I used to get an ear infection every year for several years in a row and that ear seems to produce a little more wax than my other ear and it’s occasionally itchy so this reusable swab is great for my problem. It doesn’t really absorb well but it does the trick. If you’re looking for something as absorbent as a regular Q-tip, this is not for you. At first, it seems a little flimsy but after a few uses, it is sturdy and I could get a good grip on it. So far so good. I feel so much better using this reusable swab than several Q-tips every week! It’s easy to clean and I hope it lasts me a long time!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $11.95+ (available in nine colors).

    36. A bottle of nail and cuticle care oil you apply like a clear coat of polish to give your nails all the cuticle-softening, nail-strengthening nourishment they've been craving.

    Promising review: "I had peeling, weak nails for years. Tried everything. I bought this in February. This size bottle lasted a bit more than a month with me 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 4-ounce refill bottle because I never want to run out of it again! Cannot recommend this stuff enough!" —Diana

    37. A quart-size cold brew maker with an airtight seal that'll keep your morning coffee tasting so fresh, you won't even think about going to your favorite caffeine chain for your daily fix.

    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 Tayeka cold brew maker review!

    Promising review: "I love this thing so much! I use it every day. I bought it over a year ago — still love it, has held up perfectly, and looks brand new! It is easy to clean, durable, well-sealed, and high quality! Making coffee this way provides richer flavor profiles and notes. It also allows you to make a coffee ahead of time. If you can't make a lot of noise, let's say early in the morning, this allows you to have coffee ready and pre-made. If you like iced, cold, pre-made, or richer profile coffee, I highly recommend this coffee maker pitcher. I am actually thankful for it every time I use it! :0)" —EBG

    38. A pack of glass straws you can reuse again and again for all your sustainable sippin' needs! They're wide enough to easily drink your favorite smoothie (and cute to boot).

    These straws come with two brushes for easy cleaning.

    Promising review: "These are great!! I use them every day. I’ve bumped and dropped one a few times but none of them have chipped or broken. Glass is great because you can see if there’s something stuck in them easily." —Amazon Customer

    It features a nonslip handle for a comfortable grip and two sides: one is a snag-free wire loop for buttoning and the other a narrow zipper hook.

    Promising review: "I bought this for my 90-year-old father. It has been very helpful for him and uses it every day. He loves it because it saves him time." —Amazon Customer

    40. A super-powered stainless-steel bar that won't wear out like regular bars of soap and magically extracts the left-behind stank of garlic and onions on your hands from chopping — with or without water.
