    1. A jewelry cleaning pen to return cloudy gems to their former, out-of-the-box glory without shelling out the big bucks for a professional cleaning. Yes, even that old ring from Claire's you've kept since middle school.

    Promising review: "I inherited some really special jewelry from my great-grandmother when she passed, but it hadn't been worn much since her dementia diagnosis and had just been sitting out getting dusty and dingy. One piece, in particular, is a 1.25-ct oval-shaped citrine (our birthstone) pendant in a pineapple setting. It was filthy and you could barely even tell that it was a citrine; it was so cloudy and covered in dust and gunk. I used this for about four minutes really getting into all the little spaces and crevices of the pendant, and when I was finished I literally cried. It was beautiful and sparkly and just perfect. I wear it almost every day now and clean it with this pen about once a week just to keep it sparkly, but now it only takes about 30 seconds." —keith may

    2. A gluten- and cruelty-free lengthening mascara if you're tired of getting excited about mascaras that never live up to their promises. This one is different — or at least according to the 120,000+ 5-star reviews.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "After using Lights, Camera, Lashes by Tarte for the past year, I got tired of breaking the bank over mascara. My sister suggested Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect and I IMMEDIATELY fell in love. It provides dramatic length and great volume. I can honestly say I can’t stop looking at my eyelashes in the mirror every single day because of how awesome they look. Also, it is very long wearing. I go from an eight-hour work day right to the gym and sweat a lot..and this stuff doesn’t budge! I love it!!" —Carrie E Miller

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    3. A pack of cleaning K-Cups because, unless you really have your life together, the inside of your Keurig is likely coated with grinds and residue from old brews. Now you can give your machine regular deep cleans in the same amount of time it takes to make a cup o' joe. Side effects may include better-tasting coffee.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This was easy to use. Just pop in and let the system do the work. No downtime, no waiting. Simple and easy to use. I did notice a difference after the first use. Highly recommend it." —vetrie

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $9.95.

    4. A powerful mold and mildew stain cleaner that'll lift the most daunting grout and caulking stains without the back-breaking scrubbing. Just apply the concentrated gel formula, wait six to eight hours, and wipe it off to reveal the pearly white grout you never thought you'd see again.

    Promising review: "I only write reviews when I’m thoroughly satisfied with a product or really irritated. With this product, I’m very happy! I applied it this morning and by noon you could see the difference. The caulking around the tub is so white just like I just resealed it. I’ve tried other bleaching products like Kaboom and Clorox with less than similar outcomes. The biggest difference was the mold spots behind our shower products. Those have been an eyesore for so long and now they’re gone. My only regret is I didn’t do a 'before' and 'after' photo." —CButin

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $24.99.

    5. A battery-operated fabric shaver for rescuing well-loved knits from the horrors of aging — lint, matted fibers, and pilling, oh my! It's like a tiny vacuum; just empty the detachable lint catcher when you're done, and enjoy your revitalized sweater.

    A split reviewer image of a pilled sweater with text that reads "Before" on top, and the same sweater without visible pilling with text that reads "After" on the bottom
    amazon.com

    It kills me inside when I see a favorite sweater start to pill, so I bought this exact shaver to spruce up some of my older knits. It's great and weirdly relaxing. When I first got it I was de-pilling everything, from the intended sweaters to the throw pillows on our couch. It's a little loud so your roommates may or may not come out of their rooms to see what you're doing...but it's totally worth it to make any pilled fabric look years younger.

    Also, be sure to pick up two AA batteries! They're not included.

    6. A set of reusable wad-free pads so laundry day isn't derailed by tangled bedsheets. These help maintain a balanced washer drum, reduce dry times, and prevent wet clothes from getting trapped in the sheets.

    Wad-Free is a small biz that was launched during the pandemic by Cyndi, who learned CAD (computer-aided design) to create the pads. 

    Promising review: "Wow!!! You wonder if things like this really work and well, I can absolutely confirm it does! First, I was impressed that the package came with two of the devices because I was only expecting one. So there was one for the fitted sheet, and the flat sheet. Finally, I tried it out and my sheets not only did NOT wad up, they came out of the dryer feeling fresher, feeling more dry, and unwrinkled! I will be buying a set of these for each of my immediate family members and close friends! What a great gift!!!" —katy

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    7. A pack of bottle-cleaning tablets to remove stubborn stains from the walls of metal tumblers and impossible-to-clean water bottles with NO scrubbing required!

    Promising review: "There are products that make claims that they can’t live up to. This is not one of them! These are amazing. I had two coffee flasks that were irretrievably coated with coffee and tea residue. I had tried everything possible to get the buildup off. I saw an article about these and decided to give them a try. I left the flasks for about 30 minutes and when I returned they were both sparkling clean save for a tiny area on the bottom of the worst one that didn’t completely come off. I am sure if I used another tablet it would be gone. I poured the liquid from the flasks over the tops of both of them before I rinsed them and it even got the tops clean. I will definitely use these regularly. They do a fabulous job and make my coffee flasks look brand new." —Amazon Customer

    8. A silicone-free L'Oreal moisturizing treatment if you want visibly healthier-looking hair fast — like, eight seconds fast. This rinse-out formula works on any hair texture or length, delivering the proteins and amino acids necessary for a shiny, flippable mane.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Shine in a silicone-free product?! Dreams really do come true.

    Promising review: "This stuff is life-changing. I’ve had extremely tangly hair since my baby was born and this made it so silky. It feels like heaven afterwards and the smell is great too!" —Alyssa

    Get it from Amazon for $8.97.

    9. This super cool faux book display made out of reclaimed materials that's sneakily hollowed out so you can transform rather-ignore eyesores into look-I-read decor.

    amazon.com

    Covogoods is a Utah-based, woman-founded small business that specializes in storage solutions crafted from up-cycled books.

    10. A carpet stain remover for lifting those scary stains that make you question if it's time to bring in the professionals. With this around you can get the job done yourself. And the best part? No rinsing or vacuuming required!

    Get it from Amazon for $12.29.

    11. A tube of Differin acne treatment gel so you can jumpstart your skincare routine with one of the strongest spot treatments you can get without a prescription. Reviewers warn some patience is required (but it's worth it), so give this retinoid cream a chance to work its pore-penetrating, inflammation-reducing magic.

    amazon.com

    This is *very* strong and reviewers say that while it works, it might make your skin sensitive and dry while it adjusts (much like Accutane). They recommend that you always moisturize after using this, and to use it at night while you're out of the sun.

    Promising review: "It definitely works. I was on a prescription retinoid and benzoyl peroxide combo cream (it’s double the price) + spironolactone pill for my hormonal acne before and it worked. I had to stop both for a while for personal reasons, after several months my hormones started acting up again. I had a really bad breakout, so I asked my doctor if I can at least get back on the cream, my doctor advised me to try this instead. Any active pimples heal very fast, scarring and texture is also improving. And I don’t even have to bother with prescriptions anymore." —LC

    Get it from Amazon for $12.26

    12. A super convenient tofu press if you're tired of soggy tofu ruining your favorite vegan dishes. This all-in-one system works in the fridge without you needing to come back and increase the pressure, so you get tofu that cooks perfectly every time.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've been a vegan for 13 years and I can't believe I went this long without a tofu press. So much more enjoyable cooking with tofu after pressing it. This press is different than all the rest as it has a tray that catches all the water. You can put the whole thing in the fridge and it's hassle-free. Take it out the next day and drain the liquid and you're good to go. The other presses require a plate underneath and some require tightening and adjustments as it presses. I'll admit after reading some of the reviews here of users with broken Tofuture presses I was hesitant to order but I've just been careful with mine and haven't had any problems so far." —Conner

    Get it from Amazon for $27.95.

    13. An immunity-boosting allergy supplement because your dog deserves a day in the park without suffering from itchy allergies later. These soft chews not only help with skin sensitivity, but deliver a dose of probiotics and other nutrients to help support immune function, digestion, and promote healthy skin.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Absolutely the best product. It saved my itchy goldendoodle! We tried changing food, Benadryl, medicated shampoo, fish oil, everything you can imagine... nothing worked long-term. He was itching his face so badly he would make himself bleed. Had sores and scabs all over his face and neck. I bought these because they had good reviews and I was desperate. It changed his life! He no longer scratches AT ALL! His coat looks great and all of his sores are healed. He’s the happiest he’s been which makes me a very happy momma. He is also very picky and never eats treats... he eats these every time so that’s an added bonus!" —Darcie Nation

    Get them from Amazon for $25.96.

    14. A wood polish that conditions and protects wood with a combination of beeswax and orange oil, while hiding dings and scratches so you can turn back the clock on worn-out furniture.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This product is a MIRACLE! I can't believe how well it worked. Seriously unbelievable. One application and my coffee table looks great again. EASY to use, nothing special required. While I was watching TV, I used an old cloth/rag and spread it on. As easy as that. Nothing else worked on my abused coffee table, this stuff did. I HIGHLY recommend this product." —Carol L. Hill

    Get it from Amazon for $8.98.

    15. A pack of Miracle-Gro plant food spikes for helping all your plant babies live their healthiest, happiest indoor lives. One fertilizer spike continuously feeds plants with nutrients they need to thrive for up to two months!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My mother has always used the MiracleGro plant food spikes, so I grew up familiar with them. Of all the products out there, these are the easiest to use and have never burned my plants. It works like a charm for plants that are droopy and out of sorts!" —BlueFug8

    Get a 24-pack from Amazon for $2.79 (originally $8.68).

    16. A pack of 40 acne patches so you can stop that zit dead in its tracks with gunk absorbing powers that speed up the pimple healing process without picking or popping.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I ordered these on a whim after a long day of isolation and internet browsing and because I have a terrible habit of picking at spots on my face and making them into something much much worse. These magical spots are life-changing!!! Put them on before bed (or before work) on clean skin and FORGET about them. You don't notice they're there — unless you go to pick at something and then YOU STOP!! Leave them in place for at least six hours and then peel them off. They come off easily (but not so easy that they come off while sleeping) and the amount of 'bleck' they suck out is amazing!!! So a spot that was going to erupt into Mount Vesuvius ends up being NOTHING!!!! I've purchased six packages and will keep buying them. An amazing value!" —Jennifer Nothdurft

    Get a 40-pack from Amazon for $8.49 or an eight-pack of the large patches for $8.50.

    17. These produce-saver containers to 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: "Oh my gosh, they work! I went on a 10-day trip and left my husband home with asparagus, strawberries, and spinach in the containers. He ate some of all of them, but there was plenty left when I got back, and everything was in perfect condition! I couldn’t believe it! These containers will save us a lot of money not throwing away food because we couldn’t get through it fast enough. (We shop at Costco and get large containers of produce.) These are TOTALLY worth getting!" —Elizabeth Walter

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $22.09.

    18. A variety pack of ready-to-eat beans if there just doesn't feel like enough time in the day to cook up the nutritious (and delicious) meals you crave. Simply warm up a packet in the microwave or on the stove and you've got a ready-made protein to mix into any meal in minutes.

    amazon.com, Amazon, Katy Herman / BuzzFeed

    A Dozen Cousins is a small biz aiming to create healthy, plant-based options that are actually convenient and authentic. The Black-owned brand is based in San Francisco and is named after the founder Ibraheem Basir's daughter, her 11 cousins, and all the family dinners they've shared.

    My colleague Katy Herman is a big fan of these beans:

    "This pack is from Black-owned, San Francisco-based bean brand A Dozen Cousins and comes with black beans, pinto beans, chickpea curry, red beans, refried black beans, and refried pinto beans. They're all vegan and made with avocado oil. I personally swear by their black beans, which I have just recently become completely obsessed with. They're so flavorful and perfectly seasoned and shockingly easy. Plus, one bag has about two small servings for one person, so I have leftovers the next day. I've been enjoying them with quesadillas and nachos, in homemade burrito bowls, and over microwave seasoned rice."

    Get a variety six-pack from Amazon for $24.99.

    19. A suede and nubuck cleaning brush because anyone who hasn't accidentally got caught in the rain while wearing a pair of suede shoes is lying. This brush will diminish the look of water stains with no additional cleaners required so you and your favorite shoes can reunite for another (hopefully drier) outing.

    amazon.com

    You can totally use it with another cleaner or spray if you want, but it seems like reviewers have success without! It just takes some elbow grease.

    Promising review: "I am very impressed with this product. I was new to suede shoes and instantly regretted buying a gray-colored shoed once I got them dirty. Luckily I found this lovely thing. Very easy to use, straightforward packet comes with it that tells you which sides to use and when. I would definitely recommend this since you invest so much in those shoes you might as well keep them nice and clean!" —Celeste

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    20. A plant-powered vitamin C serum with over 81,000 5-star ratings that's a multi-tasking powerhouse for anyone looking to lessen dark circles, sun spots, redness, and breakouts.

    Promising review: "This product changed my life. I now leave the house without makeup but feel confident because this serum gives me such glowing skin with an even complexion. This is must for me every morning after my cleanser and before my moisturizer. They use a good stabilizer because the vitamin C doesn't oxidate over time in the bottle. I'm now on my second bottle and plan to keep buying. I have normal to dry skin type for the record!" —Kaitlyn Evangelista

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in two sizes).

    21. A natural dog body spray for pampering your pooch between bathtimes with a no-rinse formula that neutralizes odors and keeps their coat feeling soft and looking shiny.

    Promising review: "Very quick turnaround from time of order to receipt of the dog deodorizing spray. The scent is fabulous and leaves their fur smelling clean and feeling soft. I really appreciate their names on the bottle :) along with the free goodies that were included. The peanut butter treats went over very well, the sample hand sanitizer smells awesome and I can't wait to use the dry shampoo on the dogs — what a great idea!" —Michele Petersen 

    Get it from Just A Little By Kris on Etsy for $13.75 (available in three scents). 

    22. Budget-friendly period underwear so handling Aunt Flo is as easy as...well...putting on your underwear. This affordable pair can absorb the equivalent of two tampons so you can go about your day (or night) without fretting about unexpected leakages.

    Emma Lord / BuzzFeed, amazon.com

    Some reviewers recommend sizing up! For more info, check out BuzzFeed editor Emma Lord's full Bambody period underwear review.

    Promising review: "These are amazing and they fit so good! I've worn them on my heaviest days and no leaks whatsoever. Super convenient for those of us that wear pads because you jump out of the shower and put a pair on and you're done! No sitting on the toilet to put a bulky pad in your underwear. I bought three pairs and will definitely buy more so I don't have to wait for them to air dry to re-use! Washing is easy just rinse out and throw in washer on cold water and hang to dry! I love These! Life-changing!!!!!" —Lauryn

    Get it from Amazon for $14.90+ (available in sizes XXS–6X, sold individually or in packs of two or three in various colors).

    23. A fast-acting air purifier if you're looking for a quick and easy way to eliminate airborne allergens in your home. Three-stage filtration works to trap pet dander, pollen, odors, and more so you can breathe a little easier — literally.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    The purifier filters allergens, mold, pet dander, dust, smoke, and cooking odors, and covers up to 219 square feet. Plus, there's a smart indicator to let you know when it's time to put in a new replacement filter.

    Promising review: "I foster kittens for a rescue, and no matter how often I clean the boxes — two or three times daily, and general cleaning — I still have an odor in the room. I got this product out of desperation. It was a good size and weight for kitties bouncing around. I am truly shocked and enormously happy with how it works! My husband was at wits' end with his sensitive nose. He goes in there now and is astonished — no smell. We are getting another for the kitchen! I also enjoy the nightlight. Very helpful without disturbing sick sleepy babies recovering from illness." —victoria Mohagen

    Get it from Amazon for $76.47.

    24. An earwax removal kit because cotton swabs really don't cut it (and can sometimes make things worse) when it comes to major wax buildup. With just a couple of drops, you'll be able to see and feel the wax flush from your ear and, with it, the sound-muffled world you'd been residing in.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My husband has problems with ear wax building up. A couple of years ago, when he had this problem, his doctor gave him Rx ear drops to use for four days, before coming back to irrigate his ears to remove the softened ear wax. THIS time, I bought Debrox and an irrigator ball. He used the recommended amount of drops twice a day, putting a clump of cotton in his ears after application so the drops didn’t all leak out, for the recommended time frame. Then, he, himself, used the ear irrigator a couple of times while leaning over the bathroom sink, and he saw and felt the wax flush out from his ear. Wonderful. Saved a trip to the doctor." —Not A Lot Of Money "Mom"

    Get the kit from Amazon for $7.98.

    25. A double-sided hairbrush cleaning brush that'll do a better cleanup job than your fingers ever could, with a pointed end for picking out tangles and stiff bristles to remove all that built-up hair, dust, and fluff.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is the tool I never knew I needed. It may seem like a silly thing to spend money on when you can clean your brush out by hand but this gets so much more out of the brush! It's easy and rather enjoyable. Who wants to brush their nice clean hair with a brush full of dirty oily hair and dust. When you really think about it makes you want to throw out all your old brushes. I will be buying these as gifts for all my girlfriends." —emmaline

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    26. A compact knife sharpener for keeping your blades in tiptop shape. I didn't know vigorously sawing through sweet potatoes wasn't normal until I learned you actually should be sharpening your knives, like, ALL the time!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    This teeny-tiny knife sharpener features two slots with carbide blades on one side to provide quick edge setting capabilities, and ceramic rods on the other for the final edge honing. Plus, there is a nonslip base for added stability and control.

    Promising review: "I am a former chef and have many knife sharpeners. I rotate about 10 knives at home and have found this to be a tremendous sharpener to put an edge back on a blade. Use along with a honing steel after sharpening. I have purchased a bunch of these for friends due to their effectiveness and ease of use." —drockchef

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    27. A pack of DIY mini nail art so you can look like you paid big bucks for a high-end manicure without ever leaving your home. Each waterproof, hand-drawn design is applied like a temporary tattoo and sticks to skin, nails, or any hard surface you want to customize.

    Ulta Beauty

    One pack comes with two sheets for a total of almost 200 tattoos!

    I am being 0% dramatic when I tell you that I am TRAGICALLY bad at doing my own nails, so I was skeptical if I would even have the mani capabilities to apply these cute nail art tats with any success. But I did, because they are idiot-proof and truly couldn't be easier to apply. Just cut out the desired design, place it on the nail, wet and hold for a few seconds, and peel away to reveal trendy nail art that would normally cost a pretty penny to obtain. They also have B&W designs for the minimalists among us *AND* they can be applied to skin for getting that cool hand tat look without the anxiety-inducing commitment.

    Get it from Ulta Beauty for $9.99.

    28. A box of waterproof medicated pads you apply like bandages to force out the wart living rent-free under your skin.

    A set of four reviewer pictures: The wart turned white, the ward even whiter and starting to rise, the ward starting to separate, and the wart peeling off
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I had a stubborn wart on my right thumb that has been there for almost a year. Went to the doctor the first time to freeze it, but it didn't completely remove the wart so I decided to try the gel. The gel helped but not for too long and the wart came back (in a couple days). Long story short, I got these medicated bandaids and the results are incredibly satisfying. Used these bandaids everyday for a week and the next week, my wart is gone. So far it's been a week after and I haven't noticed any growth. Highly recommend!" —J

    Get a pack of 14 from Amazon for $3.99.

    29. A patented pet hair remover if Fido's shedding is taking over your home. 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 reuse it — cleaning the hair off the brush when it gets clogged, of course!

    Promising reviews: "Finally a lint roller that really works. Now I have an obsessed husband picking up German shepherd hair off the couch. Worth the price paid. It will pay for itself. No more sticky tape rollers!" —Blanca LInda Hatter

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    30. This internet-famous foot peel mask because what could be more fun than watching your feet slough off dead skin for a week, especially when the final result is soft skin that feels like a baby's butt?

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My poor feet have been extremely neglected ever since I was pregnant two years ago. This was the first time I really ever had very rough, hard heels and 'old' looking feet; they were so bad that I didn't even want to have a pedicure or wear sandals. Anyway, these foot peels were super easy to use and boy are they effective. It was the fourth day that my feet began to peel — very strange! Totally painless. The new skin coming through was very soft, like new. I would totally recommend. My sister and mother have requested their boxes." —Ally CHR

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $23.75.

    31. A scented shaving treatment oil that uses a blend of six natural ingredients to hydrate skin, soothe irritation, and prevent painful ingrown hairs from harshing your freshly shaved vibes.

    Bushbalm

    Bushbalm is an Ottawa-based small biz with a special focus on the pubic zone(s). Their result-driven collection of products targets such grievances as ingrown hair prevention, dark spot treatment, and razor burn relief.

    Promising review: "This product actually works. The oil absorbs quickly (especially if you do it right out the shower), smells amazing (I’ve used both the sweet escape and the pumpkin spice) and most importantly I have no ingrown hairs or razor bumps! I had to be patient and consistent when I first started but I now I can’t praise this product enough, I tell everyone I know!" —Jenny W.
