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: "I have tried a million different tools and gadgets for help opening jars of all sizes, and each one had its own issues! Finally, someone has invented the perfect jar opener that is simple and requires no space in your kitchen drawers or on your counters. There was one person who suggested placing the opener with the sharp end of the 'V' closest to you and with it placed in the front, in the right corner, under your cabinet. I followed those directions and it works perfectly and easily. I have already placed an order for another one as a gift for my sister." —cat lover

    Get it from Amazon for $15.95.

    2. A variety pack of reusable shoe heel inserts so you can keep wearing your favorite sockless styles without the usual pain, blisters, and calluses.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This four-pack includes two nude, one black, and one clear heel insert.

    Promising review: "I love these and wish I had them for every pair of heels I own. They can be a little annoying to put on because they are extremely sticky, but once they're on, they're on. I bought the pack for four different heels for my week of sorority recruitment and used them on every pair and even stowed away the extras for my next pair. My favorite part is that the back connects to the heel, making it stay in place. When I have bought just heel ones in the past, they never stayed on." —Amazon Customer

    Get a mixed pack of four from Amazon for $9.98.

    3. A tinted lip oil for long-lasting hydration with a subtle wash of color that says "I absolutely did not just roll out of bed for this Zoom meeting." Red lips are the universal sign of someone who's got their life together.

    Versed

    Promising review: "Since COVID-19 began and I've worked from home, my makeup routine is practically zero. Having this lip color is what I need for Teams/Zoom meetings plus making myself feel good. I love the color and the feel!" —OLSONAH82

    Get it from Versed for $9.99 (available in three shades).

    4. A pair of snag-proof opaque tights so you can actually wear your favorite dress or skirt all year long without freezing your cute tooshie off.

    Kayla Boyd / BuzzFeed

    Snag is a small woman-owned business based in the UK creating high-quality tights in an inclusive range of sizes and colors.

    BuzzFeed Shopping Editor Kayla Boyd is a personal fan of these tights. In her own words:

    "These are honestly the best tights I've ever owned! I'm a size 16/18 and it can be hard to find tights that are actually comfortable, not a struggle to put on, and don't rip before I've even stepped outside. These ones are dream come true!! I have been wearing dresses and skirts way more often this winter because I finally have tights I can feel comfy and confident in."

    Get them from Snag for $12 (available in sizes A/B–G and in 11 colors).

    5. A cordless Burst Oral Care electric toothbrush to treat your teeth with powerful cleaning motors, supersoft charcoal bristles, and a built-in two-minute timer. This is optimized oral hygiene at its finest that's even easier than scrubbing away with a manual brush.

    Burst Oral Care

    What's included: A Burst Sonic Toothbrush, toothbrush head (with charcoal bristles), USB wall adapter, and USB charging base.

    You can also sign up to receive a shipment of fresh replacement heads every 90 days for just $6. Cancel anytime!

    Promising review: "My cousin is a dental hygienist and she sent me a BURST brush as a gift. I absolutely love brushing my teeth now! My mouth gets 10 times cleaner with only half the effort of a regular brush. Going to get my husband one as well!" —Jacy

    Get it from Burst Oral Care for $69.99+ (originally $89.98; available in three colors).

    6. 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: "I’m going to start off by noting that I hate flossing and have probably flossed a handful of times in my life — probably after eating popcorn because I was more annoyed than conscientious. Also worth noting, at 32 years old, I still have never had a cavity, but I know I’m pushing it. So I got these because they were cheap and looked cute and I thought maybe they’d inspire me to initiate a dental routine. I like them! They get into the gap between my teeth closest to the gum. Unless you have a gapped tooth, they don’t really pull all the way through like floss. The bristles are gentle and the wire is soft. The only negative is that I do feel a little guilty about all those disposable plastic handles. I did use one brush for all my teeth and will make the pack last a long time." —Greta M.

    Get a pack of 32 from Amazon for $4.71.

    7. A super-sleek retractable lint roller for making sure you don't leave the house entirely covered in hair even when your furry friend decides the pile of clothes on your bed is definitely for sleeping in.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These are the best rollers! They pick up everything with ease. I'm pretty sure they're extra sticky or something. The smaller size is great for daily use and carrying around. Best of all, the colors could match your phone!" —M. Hinrichs

    Get it from Amazon for $6.29+ (available in 13 colors). And pick up some refills here.

    8. A carabiner keyring with a magnetic clip that easily pops-off for super quick key access. The front door is now a fumble-free zone.

    Bespoke Post

    Get it from Bespoke Post for $43.

    9. A plastic-free food wrap made from biodegradable cotton and beeswax that can be washed and reused for up to a year before needing to be replaced.

    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.

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $18.

    10. An organized notepad for keeping track of ~all the things~ you have to juggle, and enjoying that oh-so-satisfying moment where you get to cross it off the list.

    A reviewer photo of the notepad divided into three sections and labeled "All the things". "All the other things", and "all the rest"
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is the perfect checklist for my husband and I to share to do tasks. We can each check the pad to see if there are any pending items. I love being able to check things off at the end of the day, it’s so satisfying!" —Stef

    Get it from Amazon for $9.59.

    11. Or a transparent mouse and memo pad so your to-do list is always on hand and in sight. The pad is divided into three sections — weekly plans, to-dos, and notes — while the top is a professional-grade mousepad with a convenient pen holder.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "What you see is exactly what you get. There are two transparent sheets to keep notes/cards and such separated. Writing on the mat is very comfortable, and I love being able to use it as a mouse pad as well. This uses plastic-type sheets, so you can just wipe them off. Since this mat can be cleaned, I don't see ever having to buy a replacement, unless this one becomes torn. Of course, I did end up buying another one because I originally purchased this mat for work and loved it so much, I purchased one for home use." —JC

    Get it from Amazon for $13.88 (available in two colors).

    12. A pack of lobe support patches that discreetly stick to the back of the ear to support stretched out piercing holes and make donning your favorite pair of heavy earrings a comfortable, no-fear affair.

    A reviewer image showing their ear with a heavy hoop earring inserted and the piercing hole slightly stretched, and the same ear with the same earing with a lobe patch attached and the piercing hole looking less stretched
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Amazing. Literal lifesavers. I LOVE my heavy Kendra Scott earrings, but I’m pretty sure they’re why my right earring hole has ripped slightly. Using these support patches, it’s as if the earrings don’t even exist. I am going to tell all of my friends to get these for their heavy statement earrings!!" —Donthemom50

    Get a box of 60 patches from Amazon for $10.12.

    13. 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.

    A reviewer photo of the Dash mini griddle open next to a stack of pancakes
    amazon.com

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

    Promising review: "Don’t waste time thinking about getting this — just get it! I’m in love with this little gadget! It’s so very easy to use and extremely convenient. All you need to do is plug it in and your home turns into an IHOP. I used this little beaut for the first time this morning and whipped out some perfectly cooked pancakes! It takes about four to five minutes to make each pancake. Expect flawless, golden-brown, consistently crafted pancakes that are completely effortless. And this skillet can be used for more than just pancakes! I fully intend on cooking eggs, bacon, quesadillas, steaks, and whatever else my heart desires on here. I got my eye on that mini waffle maker next!" —LesLeaLuvShopping

    Get it from Amazon for $9.87+ (available in five colors).

    14. A heat pack printed with a feel-good self-care message you can pop in the microwave (or freezer!) for soothing relief from period cramps, headaches, or whatever pain ails you.

    Blume

    Blume is a POC-owned small biz co-founded by sisters Taran and Bunny, who wanted to create a line of transparent, eco-conscious self-care products that de-stigmatize and de-mystify the shame-centered talk around periods and puberty. Blume also donates partial proceeds to Days for Girls, an organization that provides menstrual health solutions and education to underpriviledged communities.

    Promising review: "I like that the heat pack can be used either hot or cold. The size is perfect for my back, stomach, neck, or head to help cope with cramps or headaches that come during my period. I was impressed with the quality as well. It is easy to use hot or cold and to knead to even out the temperature. The material is nonirritating and doesn't stick to my skin." —Tristin P.

    Get it from Blume for $14.

    15. A vegan vitamin C renewal serum with advanced peptides that hydrate and nourish skin, while helping to fade age spots and just generally achieve a more even complexion.

    Lather

    This Lather formula is free of parabens, sulfates, mineral oil, and synthetic fragrance and colors.

    Promising review: "This is one of my favorite products from Lather. I use it all over my face and neck in the mornings, and I have since noticed my skin is much smoother, brighter and healthier. The product also absorbs nicely and goes perfectly with my daily moisturizer." —Karen H.

    Get it from Lather for $58.

    16. A Home Chef subscription for shipments stocked with pre-portioned ingredients and easy-to-follow recipes you can whip up in under 30 minutes!

    17. A pair of anti-chafe thigh bands because your favorite dress is calling to you from the closet, and you should be able to wear it without dealing with annoying pain and irritation!

    Three models wearing white, nude, and black underwear with matching lace anti-chafe bands on each thigh
    Amazon

    Promising review: "We can finally toss the deodorant. These things work! I was hella skeptical, because my thighs are crazy resistant to any sort of chafe defense. My thighs just love rubbing up against each other too much. But that crap has got to stop! I wore these while walking at least five hours at a music festival, and they stayed put without me ever needing to adjust them! I couldn't believe it! My delicate inner-thigh skin was preserved, not a chafe in sight. And they're so romantic looking that I didn't even care if someone caught a peek at that beautiful lace. Way sexier than my usual biker shorts. Love that I can wear dresses all day now without worrying about my thighs overheating." —OceanHips

    Get a pair from Amazon for $18.95 (available in sizes S–3XL and in 17 styles).

    And for more intel, check out our full anti-chafe bands deep dive!

    18. A tub o' heavy-duty cleaning wipes that manage to be gentle on hands (thank you, aloe vera and vitamin E) yet tough on stains. They're safe to use on virtually any surface, actually enormous compared to standard cleaning wipes, and come in an easy-to-transport tub that makes on-the-go car cleanup a breeze.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    These wipes are nonabrasive, so they're safe to use on smooth surfaces like car exteriors.

    Promising review: "I think these wipes are made out of magic because they can clean just about anything with very little effort! One wipe cleaned my ENTIRE BATHTUB, including the hard-water buildup and some residual soap scum. The wipe stayed wet for the entire use, and there was absolutely no sweating involved. I hate cleaning, but I was so pumped about the tub, I took wipe number two to my hood vent, and good golly, it's like it's brand-new. I've told everyone I know to buy these." —JenM

    Get a 90-pack from Amazon for $11.94.

    19. A culinary essentials spice kit so you can take your meals from so-so to WHOA by stocking your cabinet with top-quality versions of commonly used spices from around the globe.

    Get a seven-piece set from Curio Spice Co. for $30.

    20. A pH-balanced Glossier Milk Jelly Cleanser that'll ~gently~ unclog pores, remove makeup, and is 100% safe to use around the eyes, so your waterproof mascara and this cleanser can duke it out without irritation.

    Glossier

    The cleanser is cruelty-free and vegan.

    Fellow BuzzFeed writer Sam Wieder personally loves this cleanser. In her own words:

    "I have extremely sensitive skin, and back in fall 2019 I experienced a sudden onset of cystic acne all over my face, went on birth control for it in December, and now six months later, my skin is completely clear and I finally want to try all of these skincare products I was too scared to use. As someone who was using Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser for YEARS, I was nervous to make the switch to Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser, and full expected I'd try it once and have to retire it. Quite the opposite actually. This cleanser is truly SO gentle. Rather than leaving my skin feeling hot and irritated like some skincare products do, this leaves my skin with a cooling sensation and I actually really look forward to washing my face in the morning and at night, rather than dread it. I haven't worn makeup much lately, but the few times I have since buying this cleanser, it's done an excellent job of removing my makeup, and I can go to sleep with peace of mind that my pores aren't clogged up."

    Get it from Glossier for $9+ (available in two sizes).

    21. 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!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These have been great at relieving the pain of my plantar fasciitis almost immediately and completely. I was afraid that nothing would help, having read on the internet so many stories of people living with the pain, but I decided to give these a try based on good reviews and the low cost. Needless to say, it was a good decision. The copper compression bands are easy to put on and should fit almost any foot size, being stretchy. I have been using mine for about a month with no discernible breakdown in the elastic. I do wear them all day under my socks and take them off to air out at night. This works for me, and I haven't had any foot pain in the night as I was having before using the compression bands." —Mark Mumma

    Get a pair from Amazon for $13.95.

    22. A Chuckit! ball launcher so you can up your fetch game by throwing the ball farther (good for the dog) and pick it up without actually touching the copious amount of slimy drool left behind (good for you). Everyone wins!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I ordered the small Chuckit! instead of the large because of the size of our yard and I did not want to check the ball too far over the fence. This is the perfect size for a smaller space and it is easy to control the distance to which you throw the ball for the dog. We also took it to the park in a large pasture and it did just great throwing it a long distance as well as short distance. The ball cup makes it awesome to just be able to pick the ball up without touching it with your hands and I like the fact that a normal tennis ball will fit in it instead of having to buy the Chuckit! ball." —Sam Chap

    Get it from Amazon for $7.69+ (available in larger packs).

    23. A metallic jewelry stand with a built-in mirror if you're in need of a convenient, multi-purpose storage solution for all the earrings, rings, bits, and baubles you wear most.

    Anthropologie

    Promising review: "I am obsessed with this mirror. It’s the perfect size and color and can hold my jewelry or makeup products so I don’t have to go running around looking for them." —Cmorgan27

    Get it from Anthropologie for $28.

    24. A Tushy bidet attachment for a true revo-loo-tionary toilet upgrade that'll give your tushy the tip-top clean it deserves.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    It comes with everything you need to install their bidet in under 10 minutes (8.5 to be exact)! And there's a 60-day money-back guarantee if you find the bidet life isn't for you.

    Promising review: "My husband is pretty tough to buy for — got this for him for Christmas 2019 and a year later he says has been one of the best gifts he has ever received. We both couldn’t live without a Tushy now. We use less toilet paper (money and earth saver!) and we’ve never felt so squeaky clean!" —Let’s Be Honest

    Get it from Amazon for $79+ (available in five colors).

    25. A silicone Foreo Luna Mini 2 that gently vibrates to cleanse skin and unclog pores for a deep clean without irritation. Redness and rawness are not on my skin vision board, thank you.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    The Luna Mini 2 vibrates, allows you to control the vibration's intensity, and it's so simple to use! Just turn the brush on and move in circular motions around your face (first apply your normal cleanser). The brush will vibrate for 60 seconds, and then you can rinse your face with water!

    Promising review: "I love this scrubber! I had never used something similar before, but I don't think I could ever go back to just a washcloth. This makes my skin feel so soft, and for the first time in my life, my skin is noticeably brighter and clearer. I tend to have splotchy skin, and after a month of using this in the evenings before bed, the splotchiness is gone. I seems silly, but a little extra scrubbing goes a long way! This is gentle and has never bothered my skin. It's easy to clean and I've hardly had to charge it." —Laura

    Get it from Amazon for $83.80+ (available in six colors).

    And check out our full Luna Mini 2 facial massager and cleanser review for more reasons why we love this gadget.

    26. A set of silk scrunchies from a Black woman-owned brand so you can throw your hair up and out of the way without any painful pulling or tugging when it comes time to take it out. Bonus: the silk also prevents creases and dents so you can go from messy bun to free-flowing without fear.

    A tan, pink, and black silk scrunchie
    Grace Eleyae

    Grace Eleyae founded her eponymous small business label after a bumpy car ride in 2014 left her chemically-straightened hair *literally* broken. She created her first product, The Slap (a satin-lined adjustable cap) to treat her own hair, and after seeing the results started to share her discovery with friends and family, eventually growing into a full line of protective hair care products that are both fashionable and functional. In fact, Grace Eleyae silk-lined winter beanies made it on the 2020 edition of Oprah's Favorite Things!

    Promising review: "I bought these for pulling my hair up while sleeping and for working out. I love how gentle they are on my hair while also looking very cute. They also surprisingly stay in place quite well despite how much more loosely they hold my hair than an elastic band. " —Brandy S.

    Get an assorted pack of three from Grace Eleyae for $38.

    27. 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: "Love, love, love this brush! I mainly use it as a wet brush in the shower, as opposed to a dry brush. It definitely took a few tries for my body to actually enjoy the brushing, but now that it's used to the bristles, I can't see myself showering without this tool. It just feels like it's removing the dead top layer of my skin and getting all that junk and sunscreen (it's summer) off my body, leaving it so freakin' smooth." —ChrissyB

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    28. A compostable wheat straw bento box for making it way easier to pack a delicious lunch you'll actually want to eat come one o'clock with organized compartments, a leakproof design, and even matching cutlery!

    A reviewer photo showing a top-down view of the bento box filled with different food in each compartment
    amazon.com

    The different compartments make packing a multi-food lunch easy, and the center unit is leakproof for liquids. It's freezer-, microwave-, and dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "I love it! It is a sturdy, attractive, well-designed product that will be enjoyed for years. The five compartments vary in shape and size and will accommodate a variety of foods: fruit, sandwiches, cookies, chips, salsa, or dip — you name it! No more need for several ziplock bags just to keep food separate. It worked well in the microwave to heat up some delicious pasta. It can go in the freezer, the microwave, and the dishwasher. Best of all, this eco box lives up to its name by being eco-friendly, so it will not be clogging up some landfill or floating in the ocean in the years ahead. Meanwhile, I’ll be buying more for my home and for gifts." —John A. Carroll

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99.

    29. 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: "I love both the size and the softness. They are awesome at both getting you dry and then drying themselves. I will never go back to normal towels." —Brad S

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

    30. A soap-dispensing dish brush to make quick work of the pile of dishes you've been avoiding, thanks to a built-in food scraper and targeted soap application with the *literal* push of a button.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I ordered this dish-washing-liquid-fillable brush along with one with a different head about a year ago. A couple of weeks ago the seal holding in the washing liquid seems to have gone bad – the liquid began seeping out of the brush handles. I emailed OXO asking if they would replace them, but didn't expect much, given the amount of time since the purchase. To my surprise, they emailed me back saying that they were shipping replacements for both brushes. This is excellent customer service. They were under no obligation to replace these items but did so anyway. Highly recommend their products and, especially, the company." —TonyGeee

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in larger packs).

    This brush is compatible with OXO brush head attachments and the scrubber sponge refills.

    31. A set of Airy Nest linen sheets that manage to be both cool and cozy. You'll be looking forward to bedtime even more than before!

    Peach sheets and pillow cases on casually made bed

All of their sheets are packaged in reusable linen and cotton bags instead of plastic, and they're a carbon-neutral company!

    The full set includes a fitted sheet, flat sheet, and pillowcases!

    Fellow BuzzFeed writer Mallory Mower is loving this sheet set. As she puts it:

    "I have several sets of sheets in my home (I have two hairless cats who sweat while they sleep...the sheets have to be washed a *lot*) and these are quickly becoming my favorite set. These are hearty, but feel luxurious, and they wash well. They handle my cats' grime, sweat, and claws with ease and look good while doing it!"

    Get a it from Airy Nest for $265 (available in five sizes and in three colors).

    32. An anti-frizz serum with Moroccan argan oil so you can hop on a one-way train to a frizz-free zone, where sleek, shiny, hydrated hair abounds.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Definitely ordering again. My hairstylist introduced me to this product a couple years ago and I have been using it religiously ever since. I have thick 4b/4c hair and it works really good for me. The smell is amazing. It's not too strong. It gives my hair the right amount of shine, slip, and protection when I'm using heat." —Aleah

    Get it from Amazon for $4.94 ( available in larger packs).

    33. Or this curl defining cream-gel infused with argan oil, because bottling moisture to avoid frizz is an endless battle that you shouldn't have to fight anymore.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Like many of the people who have posted reviews, I've tried every curl cream in the book. High-end to low-end, I've tried them all. I can't remember how I stumbled across this product, but it was the reviews that made me want to give it a try. Thank goodness I did, and that's why I'm writing this review. This product is amazing. I have waist-length wavy/curly red hair, and I only have to use two pumps of the product to coat all my hair. My curls are wonderfully moisturized and shaped, with absolutely ZERO greasy or crunchy feel. A little goes a long way. Highly recommend this!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $22.

    34. A cozy Patagonia fleece pullover that's as good for lazing around the house as it is for layering up to leave it.

    Backcountry

    Promising review: "I really love this pullover. The fleece lining is so soft and cozy! I would definitely say this fits true to size but my recommendation if you are between sizes is to size up if you want to fit another layer underneath. May have to get this in more colors I like it so much." —Molly

    Get it from Backcountry for $71.40+ (available in sizes XXS–XXL and in 11 colors).

    35. A pair of face mask storage baskets so you're never left wondering "Is this thing clean?" as you head out the door.

    36. 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 have sensitive skin and this has helped tremendously! I’m a woman who unfortunately started shaving my chin 20 years ago to get rid of peach fuzz. I’ve had stubble ever since and have to shave every day. I get rashes on my chin due to shaving. My skin is now less sensitive and my rash is almost gone!" —Angela

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    37. A black eyeliner stamp that'll take the anxiety-inducing guesswork out of liquid eyeliner application and make it easy to achieve a perfect cat-eye look every time.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    The set comes with two double-ended pens. Each pen has one side with the wing stamp, and the other with a traditional liquid eyeliner tip.

    Promising review: "Actual holy grail! This eyeliner has changed my life. I know that sounds suuuper dramatic (and it is), but it’s true! I have been doing cat eyeliner for the past six years and I’m somehow STILL horrible at it. I also recently had a baby, so my daily 10–20 minutes of attempting a passable cat-eye was chucked out the window and replaced with a sad, under-five-minute routine. I ordered this on a whim thinking it might help and after the first application, I knew I had found my answer! This stuff is SO easy to apply and actually looks really good. Now I get to feel a little more like myself even if all I’m doing that day is changing diapers." —Katelyn

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97+ (available in three sizes).

    38. A reusable cotton swab so you can clean your ears and clean up the planet at the same time by replacing 1,000 single-use swabs.

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

    Promising review: "OK I admit it's not soft and plushy, but it cleans perfectly and you’re producing less trash considering I use one and so does my whole family daily!!!" —Jannette N. Joly

    39. 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 was skeptical of these, but now I'm pretty sure they're what Mulan's outfit was made of when she wiped her makeup off on her sleeve in the movie. Even totally dry, they do a pretty impressive job of taking off all my makeup (including waterproof eyeliner and mascara) in a couple of swipes. I like to use a little micellar water to make my skin feel a little cleaner. It's nice not to burn through so many cotton pads." —RachelM

    41. A water tumbler so you can turn 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!

    BuzzFeed editor Sam Wieder loves hers. In her own words:

    "I own this wonderful water bottle, and I swear it's the only reason I'm good at keeping up with my water intake now. It comes with eight colorful rubber bands, and each time I finish the bottle, I take a rubber band off and wear it on my wrist. It's actually so rewarding getting to take a band off, and even more rewarding once you take the last band off. I've tried setting alarms on my phone, buying bigger water bottles, using the Plant Nanny app — this is the only thing that has worked for me."

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    42. A pair of wireless spacer bras if no bra is a no-go and you need something that offers ample support without the constricting, get-this-off-of-me wire.

    Lively

    Promising review: "I wanted a no underwire bra for health and comfort reasons. This bra is great for giving you that support and comfort all at the same time. I can wear this all day long and not worry about having it on too long because of the wire. The only thing is that I used the size chart, but the band size is a little tight. I think it's stretching out, but now I know to go with my usual size in the future." —Eliana

    Get a pack of two from Lively for $60 (available in band sizes 32–38 and cup sizes A–DDD).

    43. An ergonomic desk chair made from breathable mesh that tilts, spins, and adjusts to meet your working needs. In this chair, you can close your eyes and almost feel like you're back in the office — breathing in the sweet smell of someone's aggressively fishy leftovers in the microwave.

    Office Depot

    This chair is height adjustable with height-adjustable armrests.

    Promising review: "I bought this to replace a bonded leather chair that was shedding leather and I love it. The mesh material is cool and very comfortable. The chair has multiple adjustments including lumbar support and was easy to assemble with the provided wrench." —Katy

    Get it from Office Depot for $189.99.

    44. 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: "We used to use paper towels to cover our food in the microwave, but with this cover, it's 100 times better! No more splashes on the top of the microwave to clean up. This gadget is great! Would buy again, and again! :)" —cruz

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