    4. An awesome Mystical Fire Flame Colorant that'll turn your fire into a colorful light show. Just drop the pack unopened onto your fire and watch as the vibrant colors come to life.,

    Promising review: "Absolutely love these. Whenever we have company over, we throw them in the fire. It doesn't matter if it is in the house or in the fire pit. People are awed by the beautiful colors of the flames. Each pouch typically lasts about 30 minutes. It only burns the color where you place the pouch. So I would recommend putting in two for a more evenly spread out color. Definitely a good buy!!" —Laura A Fama

    A before and after customer review photo of their waterbottle

    Promising review: "Finished using it five minutes ago and it’s the best! My husband uses a Stanley thermos daily to take coffee to work. He tries to remember to rinse it out every day, but that doesn’t always happen. I got the package today, filled the thermos with water, dropped in a tablet, and let it sit. I promptly forgot about it for a few hours. Initially, I was disappointed when I dumped the water, as it was barely tinged brown. Then I put fresh water in, covered the top, shook it, and OMG. The crap that came out was disgusting, yet fascinating. I looked in the thermos and saw almost nothing but sparkly silver! There was a little crud left in the top third of the thermos, but it’s a really tall one, so I wasn’t surprised. Got the bottle brush, swished twice, and bam! All clean! No fumes, no smell, no nothing, just clean. I used to struggle cleaning it with baking soda, vinegar, the brush, soap, and elbow grease. Screw that. I will forever use only these tablets! Here’s to better tasting (and way less gross) coffee!" —BranchingOut

    7. A pair of perfectly printed full-length leggings you're gonna be able to rock with your favorite boots or sneakers.

    Promising review: "Love, love, love these leggings. I actually own the Lululemon camo Aligns, and I think these are a great, more affordable option. The fabric is definitely not the same as Align fabric, but I don't mind at all. These are still comfy, and feel a lot more durable. I would absolutely recommend these leggings and I am definitely considering ordering the splinter camo too!" —Anonymous

    A customer review photo of the bottle of body wash

    Promising review: "OK, I’m in my mid-30s and have tried everything under the sun since I started getting mild acne on my butt as a teen. I mean everything! I gave this a try half hoping that it would at least calm it down. Well, let me tell you what it did! The first three weeks it drastically calmed it down and cut the acne in half. A month later and I have A CLEAR BOTTOM!!!!! I am writing this comment because I’m in the process of ordering my second bottle! My husband laughs when he sees me now checking out my smooth and clear butt in the mirror! Oh the freedom that comes with it! It comes out like a lotion with no scent that I notice. I can use it on my shoulders, face, and butt. It’s not moisturizing but it also doesn’t leave you dry. I use a very light and sensitive moisturizer after use. Can be used daily!" —Amazon Customer

    10. A pack of stain-removing, nontoxic cleaning cups perfect for cleaning the inside of your Keurig or K-Cup coffee machine.,

    Promising review: "Okay, so these cleaner pods are awesome! I didn't know how gross our Keurig was until today. The big mason jar on the left is when I actually ran the cleaner through plus one rinse cycle. The middle one is another rinse cycle and the last one, on the right, is the last one I did. So yes, I would suggest running two or three rinse cycles instead of the recommended one. But it's still an awesome product for the price! I have a Keurig 2.0 and I had no issues." —Mads0421

    11. A set of Gorilla Grip Adhesive Grippers designed specifically to help keep your pesky rug corners in place and prevent any slipping, sliding, or tripping.

    A image of grippers on an area rug being placed down on hardwood floors

    Promising review: "So I am going to point out things I was wondering about before I bought these for myself. Do I think these will be great for removing, cleaning under, putting back? Probably not. Not surprising to me since it's basically just a very strong tape. I put mine on tile and have no intention of moving them. I'll clean around them. Secondly, the adhesion is crazy. I don't expect to need to replace these any time soon. Six months to a year maybe? But what you need to know is that they will NOT work for all floorings. If you're adding a rug to carpet, these strips will likely remove carpet fibers and possibly leave a sticky residue you'll never get up. If you have laminate or vinyl, it could very well pull up the design of your floor. If you're adding to a wood that isn't very well lacquered, you could end up damaging the floor trying to get the adhesive off. So, I might limit the use of these to tile or concrete. This also means you might want to be careful what rugs you attach them to. If they're cheap, the strips may very well rip off the backing. All in all, I'm extremely impressed with them. For what I needed them for, they're perfect. I will buy again once these inevitably get pulled up and dirty by my filthy children." —Stephanie

It comes with an adhesive strip for easy attachment to the can lid. It can be used on both outdoor and garage trash cans, dumpsters, and trash bins.,

    Promising review: "We had maggots in the outside garbage can several weeks in a row. It’s been two weeks now without anything but a bunch of dead flies (see pic). Instead of sticking it to the lid (which seems like it would just fall in), I hang it from a short string with binder clips on each end and then take it out on garbage day." —Cindy

    16. A very handy Tinkle Hair Cutter, the perfect tool for giving you an at-home trim without the fear of totally ruining your do.,

    Promising review: "The Tinkle Hair Cutter is a great, cheap way to trim your hair, especially if you have short hair like a pixie cut. It saves time at the salon. It's super easy to use because it is basically a comb, so you just comb it through your hair. It has two sides, one for thin hair and one for thick hair. I used it to trim off the little baby hairs that grow out in a week and stand out. It helps me to keep a clean look. I would say to be careful applying too much pressure when using it. You don't want to cut off too much and you should go to a professional every few months to keep a nice style. I bet professionals could use it too. Also, it makes a bit of a mess so be careful when you are using it and make sure you are someplace where you don't mind getting some hair on the floor." —Monicat23

    Get it from Amazon for $3.89.

    17. An eight-blade Mueller Austria Pro-Series Slicer that'll mince your onions, chop your veggies, and ever store them after. It has three different-sized chopper blades and five interchangeable blades for slicing, julienne, grating, and even shredding.

    A customer review photo of their chopped up veggies with a note that it took less than five minutes to do

    Promising review: "I have a high sensitivity to raw onions, yet I use them in almost every meal. Not only do my eyes burn and water to the point of blindness, but I sneeze excessively. I've tried all the tricks, even wearing motorcycle goggles. Nothing helps. This minimizes my onion cutting time by 90%. It takes me less than a minute to dice one rather than 10. It works for all my fruits and veggies too, but has saved me from the dreaded onion. I absolutely LOVE this product." —Candace

    A model with transparent nose vents inserted in each nostril while they sleep

    Each set comes with four reusable vents in different sizes, so you can find one that perfectly fits your nose.

    Promising review: "I am 30 and my husband is 34. In the seven years we have been together, I have heard him snore like a freight train every single night. We are expecting our first child any day now and I was worried that his snoring might wake her up, or worse, the earplugs I am driven to wear every single night just to endure the noise would prevent me from responding to her cries or fusses in a timely manner and endanger her safety. We tried these for the first time last night (he wore the large and I wore the small, smooth, not ribbed versions). He said they were comfortable to wear all night and YOU GUYS... I didn't hear a single sound coming from him the ENTIRE NIGHT. He usually falls asleep within seconds, and the only way I know is because I hear the insanely loud snoring right away and it only gets worse as his sleep deepens. But as we were falling asleep last night, I didn't hear anything and was able to naturally fall asleep without any earplugs! Being 39 weeks pregnant, I get up every hour to go to the bathroom and his snoring is usually going strong the whole night, but last night, he was so quiet, I was worried he was dead. Not a single peep every time I got up. I am floored. I would never expect something so tiny and simple to have such a life-changing effect. It's a miracle. This is going to change everything for us!" —jj15458

    Promising review: "I really loved this product. I am currently waiting for a new Invisalign set. My old Invisalign needed to be cleaned. I read the reviews and decided to purchase. OMG it worked! There was a fresh taste and they were clean. I wished I had found this product sooner. I did let them soak overnight only because I had been wearing them for the last four months. Nothing happened to Invisalign; there was no weakness or anything. Just very clean and fresh. If I could have given the product 10 stars I would have." —Lisa R.

    A customer review photo of their very happy dog with the ball

    Promising review: "If you've got an active dog, then you need one of these. This is a very simple toy that any active dog ought to enjoy. I got one for our 15-pound dachshund who went wild for it. After a few years of play, a couple of the sound tubes failed so I replaced it and the new one is one of our companion's favorite toys. The only 'warning' is that if you have light-colored molding and your dog chases the ball into the wall, then you'll likely get colored marks. These marks come off of our molding easily with a Magic Eraser." —The Real Bob

    Promising review: "I swear by this product. Very effective on discolored skin due to scarring. I had shingles on my face brought about by stress because we were moving. It ravaged the lower right side of my face and I was pretty sure it was going to leave hideous scarring. I bought this and started applying it when I started scabbing and still haven't stopped using it until now. I had my shingles in April and it's August now. Check the before and after pics. It works." —twitch

    Promising review: "I highly recommend this product. The instructions were super easy to follow and it worked perfectly! I was a little nervous to pull the sticks out once the two minutes were up, however it didn't even hurt. I expected it to hurt momentarily and my eyes to water, but neither was true! If you wanna get rid of them pesky nose hairs...snag this product!!!" —Julie J.

    Check out my full review on Olaplex No. 3, which is an awesome little miracle potion.

    Promising review: "After my stylist left the bleach on entirely too long, my hair needed major help. My ends felt stringy, rough, and mostly just broke when touched/brushed/were wet. It was a mess. This significantly improved the condition of my hair. I can actually touch it again and it feels like hair instead of hay. I would definitely recommend trying this if you have damaged hair!" —Jaclyn DeGorter

    Promising review: "I was having an issue with the fungus gnats inside and outside of my house. They were driving me crazy, flying in my face and I couldn't take it anymore. I ordered these traps and they worked instantly! I placed the stakes and traps in my orchids (which I keep in the kitchen) and then placed some in my mini garden outside. Both traps caught more than I expected and are still catching more. It caught not only the fungus gnats but all kinds of large and small flies and moths! Totally worth the buy and will be buying more when I run out." —Sami H.

    27. A pain-relieving knee stabilizer band great for running, hiking, team sports, jumping up and down, or just general wear and tear from everyday aging.,

    Promising review: "Oh my God! I have had bad knees for decades and I have tried so many braces but they're hot, they migrate down, and I have to constantly pull them up so I just don't wear them. But my knees are so bad it's hard to walk sometimes and so I wanted to try something different and this looked really simple, and if it didn't work I wasn't out much money. So I tried it and it's amazing! Instant relief. I even took it off to see if maybe my knees weren't feeling the pain and the pain came back after a moment so I know it was working. The weather really messes with them. Living in the midwest means spring and fall transitions are awful and the extreme cold and storms wreak havoc on my knees. I shouldn't be this excited about a product but I literally carry this in my purse." —Meghan Dray

It helps me a lot! Last time I took a plane with a suitcase and a cup of coffee, I dropped and spilled my drink everywhere when it was my turn to check my passport and ticket. It was a nightmare! This time, I bought this cup holder to do me a favor! I don't have to worry about where my cup and phone are! I can free my hands to do other things. I love it so much! Hope you love it too." —Philip

    A model's before/after picture using the concealer to cover up dark circles and brighten up under the eyes

    Promising review:I love this concealer! I am pale and the brightener has a slight pink undertone, so it works well to cancel out any darkness under my eyes, but also works as a concealer too. It doesn’t feel dry under my eyes. I always have a hard time finding a concealer that I love because most make my under eyes look dry/cakey even though they seem well moisturized before. I love how well this conceals but still feels so lightweight!" —One Whisper

    Promising review: "It makes my bangs and roots look fresh again. And I love that this is a powder and not a stinky aerosol spray. That also means that this lasts MUCH longer. I use it every other day when I don't wash my hair since I have very oily roots. I've been using it for almost a month and barely any is missing out of the bottle. A little goes a long way." —Rachel G.

    Readers also use this to keep their eyeglasses from fogging!

    Promising review: "I had a cheap, untempered windshield that was awful in the rain. A friend of mine from college recommended Rain-X and I was shocked at the difference. I applied it with a soft rag and sat there wondering if it was even on properly. I trusted the system and then later that night took my car out for a drive; it rained while I was out and the difference was instantly noticeable. Before, when using my wipers, streaks would obscure my view so much that any lights would make driving in the rain hard. Now, the droplets don't smear and smaller ones sometimes just roll off. It's pretty great." —Alison J. Gong

    34. An absolutely essential Denman Hair Brush designed to help in the detangling, separating, shaping, and defining of your curly hair.,

    This brush is great for 3c/b hair!

    Promising review: "I love this brush! I ordered it because I saw a YouTube video of a girl with curly hair using it, and her curls came out amazing! I always do wash-and-gos, and I usually would only brush/comb my hair in the shower, style it once I was out, but sometimes if I waited a little longer to style it, my hair would get dry and frizzy. It would be almost impossible to get my curls defined without getting back in the shower. With this brush, now all I have to do is spray my hair with water, put the product in it, and comb it through with this brush, and my curls are poppin'!" —Kirstie

    35. A jar of Frozen Cream, a hydrating face moisturizer that can help soothe skin, tighten pores, and get rid of redness.


    Promising review: "When it's in room temperature, it’s like regular gel type but when kept in the freezer, it becomes like a sorbet texture. Once you apply it to your skin, it becomes jelly type. It doesn’t have any fragrance to it, the ingredients are clean, too. I feel like this will be super effective to pore tightening. I’m totally repurchasing this product. For this price, it’s a steal." —Lily

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.

    Promising review: "Magnificent work of supernatural art! Absolutely love this little book! I read a lot of books on supernatural, paranormal, and folklore subjects and this tiny tome is more fun than most of the stuff in my library. It’s got it all! It’s creepy, it’s spooky, it’s historical, it’s urban legend, and magick all rolled into one. This is such a unique book that I recommend anyone and everyone into the occult or supernatural reads this and keep it for reference. The author did her homework and cited her references and the history of each 'game.' The book is well written and edited and so much fun to read. I bought it strictly for chills and thrills, never intending to play the games (but the fun is in MAYBE SOME DARK NIGHT I WILL) so I encourage anyone who wants a tantalizing wicked nighttime read to get this book. You will be pleasantly creeped out." —SEB333

    Promising review: "I got a bottle of this in one of those subscription boxes and kinda rolled my eyes — but I use it almost every single day! I have very, very limited closet space, so some clothes that should be hung end up getting folded, and, let's be honest, most of the time I don't even bother to fold. I'm very busy — a mom, a business owner, and I'm going back to school to be a nurse. So I don't have time to steam my clothes or fold them properly. This is incredible and saves a lot of time. I found it works the best if I spritz a little and then pull out the wrinkles. Smells fantastic and it's def my go-to." —Laura Maturo

    Promising review: "Wonderful compression gloves. Good support and fit. Nice that fingertips are exposed for better typing and phone ease. My hands don't get hot or sweaty during use. As I was getting used to them my fingertips felt throbby, but just taking a break and wiggling the fingers now and then helped. The gloves are not only good for typing work. I occasionally use them for driving and just for relief. Whatever helps. And they do. Make sure you measure correctly so you get the right size for your relief. The gloves do work." —P. Mouse

    52. A pack of Affresh dishwasher cleaner tablets — just throw them in and they'll penetrate, dissolve, and remove any odor-causing residue or lime and mineral buildup. Maintenance, folks, it's part of adulthood, who knew.

    Promising review: "I have to admit I bought this with a lot of skepticism. Our 35-year-old dishwasher wasn't really cleaning dishes, it was only the heated water that sanitized them. Our glasses would come out so cloudy that we were embarrassed to have anyone over and give them something to drink. We have a well so the water is full of minerals. I chalked it up to having to buy a new dishwasher, which we can't afford right now, or doing dishes by hand. But even using vinegar and scrubbing by hand didn't get those glasses clean. We followed instructions and put in two Affresh tablets, then ran the dishwasher. On the next load, things were a little bit better but the glasses were still not great. My husband said we'd just have to buy new glasses. Then I read a review where someone said they put in the Affresh tablet along with the dish soap. So, I tried that on a load of just glassware. It was AMAZING! It was like the glasses were new. We've now been using the dishwasher for a little more than a month and everything is coming out beautifully. We followed instructions and put in two new tablets on the one-month anniversary to make sure we were keeping everything clean. Now we don't have to buy a new dishwasher immediately. I am so surprised and grateful for a product that actually does what it says." —MaggieMae
