    43 Problem-Solving Products That Will Just Plain Make Your Life More Comfortable

    Time for you to be snug as a bug in a headache-free rug.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Some may have been sent as samples, but all opinions and reviews are our own. 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. A delightful little tool called the "Bug Bite Thing" that suctions on all kinds of bug bites to reduce swelling, itchiness, and redness right at the source. (Ability to curse mosquitoes into the next dimension not included.)

    2. A memory foam seat cushion for your tushy so effective at relieving pressure from your tailbone that you'll finally stop losing sleep over your love-hate relationship with your chair.

    3. A bottle of Drop It, a natural wine sulfate and tannin remover that works its magic on your glass in just 20 seconds, sparing you the infamous Post-Wine Headache and allergic reactions. It's also a lot more cost-effective and environmentally-friendly than wine wands or other competitors — a single bottle of this can be used to treat up to 55 glasses of wine, as opposed to wands that can only do a few glasses each before they get tossed.

    4. A 3D mouth bracket that clips to the inside of your face mask to keeps you from breathing in fabric (especially important for someone like me who talks a million miles an hour and needs to suck in a lot of air!!).

    5. A combination sleep mask with wireless headphones so you can listen to white noise, audiobooks, or music to relax without risking your ears getting snore while you snooze. Bonus: it's designed to work for side sleepers, and the inside is contoured with a cooling memory foam so you don't feel pressure on your eyes, either.

    6. A Bevel shave system set, a grooming kit specifically designed for razor bump-free shaving for coarse, curly hair. It comes complete with a re-engineered safety razor that, importantly, *doesn't* cut hair under the skin, preventing ingrown hairs, bumps, and other shaving irritations.

    7. A rechargeable hand warmer complete with double-sided heat and three different heat settings that'll make you the envy of everyone gritting their teeth through the winter cold.

    8. A foot file to remove painful, aching calluses and cracked skin from your feet with some gentle rubbing. Your feet are gonna be so smug when you're done, TBH.

    9. A set of affordable, highly popular (seriously, these have over 100,000 popular reviews) wireless Bluetooth earbuds made with adjustable silicone tips so you can find your *perfect* fit, and never worry about them falling out or your ears getting sore.

    10. A suuuper popular Bio-Oil made with vitamins A and E, chamomile, and lavender — you may recognize it as a product a lot of people use to help fade scars (both old and new), soothe cracked and dry skin, and help moisturize without affecting your pores, but people are also using it in quarantine to help with dry and painful skin on their hands from hand-washing and sanitizing.

    11. An insulated weatherproof and soundproof strip that easily sticks to the outer rims of your door to keep heat and air conditioning from escaping out of your room, so you'll stay cozy all night long. (It also works great as a sound dampener if you *also* have neighbors who like to watch The Office on full blast at 2 a.m!!)

    12. A suuuuper soft Apple Watch/Fitbit band alternative for anyone who finds the regular straps irritating or constricting. These are high-key way cuter anyway.

    13. A detangling brush with an easy-to-hold handle that's so effective on all hair types that it's amassed over 20,000 5-star reviews on Amazon — people swear by it for detangling fast without pulling and damaging hair, so you'll win back those ten minutes you usually spend going "ow OW ow ow" in front of the mirror each morning.

    14. A pair of comfy period-proof underwear designed to hold two tampons' worth of period blood that are a *great* alternative to walking around with uncomfy, bulky pads (or worrying about tampon leakage).

    15. A bottle of the *constantly* out of stock Glossier Solution, an exfoliating skin perfector formulated with three acid groups to "unglue" dead skin from your face to free your pores at last. Reviewers mention it making a big difference in irritation-inducing dry skin and redness over time.

    16. An adjustable, portable standing desk so you can give your aching back a break and either use it as a standing desk, or to elevate your sitting desk to better align your spine.

    17. A shampoo scalp massager you can use in the shower to massage and exfoliate your scalp, working wonders on painful irritation caused by dandruff or psoriasis. Also this just feels? Super decadent?? Like, hello "getting your hair washed at the salon" vibe.

    18. A set of itty bitty dermaplaning razors you can use to take care of those lil' unibrow hairs that keep dodging your tweezers or work whatever face fuzzies you might want to take care of in a gentle way, without any of the "YIKESSSS" of plucking or waxing.

    19. A roll-on migraine stick made with peppermint, spearmint, and lavender oils to help you soothe away that vague headache you sometimes get from sitting in one place for too long (Big Work From Home Mood, y'all).

    20. A soft silicone ear-saver and mask-extender that works overtime on problem-solving — not only does it take some of the pressure off your ears, but it helps make a more personalized fit on masks with elastic straps that don't *quite* fit your face.

    21. Or a cute little button ear saver you can use to alleviate the pressure if you wear your hair tied back.

    23. A compression foot sleeve to help manage heel pain and plantar fasciitis that you can sneakily wear right under your socks. The compression is so effective that even reviewers with chronic pain swear by them!

    24. A rotating, heated back and neck massager to work out all of the knots in your odds and ends that you're starting to name after individual tabs still open on your work browser each night.

    26. A customizable herbal sleep pillow that may help soothe your nerves before bed and give you a calmer, more restful sleep. (As much as we all love having Liz Lemon-esque nightmares about beloved cheese snack mascots.)

    29. A bottle of nail and cuticle repair oil that you simply brush on your nail beds once a day to condition and strengthen all those brittle spots and painful hangnails, leaving you with thick, strong nails and nail beds you're not constantly picking at.

    30. A pair of blue-light-blocking glasses to help defend your eyeballs against the strain of your transition from phone to laptop to television to laptop to phone, aka your eyes' new itinerary.

    33. A set of super comfy wax ear plugs that mold to the shape of your inner ear like putty, fully blocking out all surrounding hullabaloo so you can get your beauty rest *without* making the insides of your ear sore.

    34. A glare-free Kindle Paperwhite that not only can hold thousands of books, but will significantly minimize eye strain by letting you read in the precise way you want — you can customize any book with all your favorite fonts and layouts, opt to enlarge fonts, and even use the adjustable light to reduce strain whether you're inside or outdoors.

    35. A Squatty Potty, one of those internet-famous stools you can put at the base of your toilet to prop your feet up on while you ~go~. The placement helps align your colon to make the process a whole lot easier and faster — like, 20 seconds compared to several minutes! — so you don't end up straining and/or watching all of TikTok while you're waiting yourself out.

    36. A set of Sea Bands, which target an acupuncture point on your wrists meant to help reduce nausea. Basically, if you're someone who has motion sickness, morning sickness, migraine nausea, or even nausea brought on by cramps, this may the be thing to take you from 🥴to 😊.

    37. A large electric heating pad designed to be extra soft and flexible, so you can cuddle up to its warmth or ease aches and pains no matter where they're popping up on your human form.

    38. A ridiculously cute microwaveable stuffed animal that doubles as a heating pad. These bubs are also lavender-scented, which may help with anxiety or insomnia if you need a soothing way to calm down.

    39. A cooling weighted blanket with natural glass beads on the inside for weighted pressure that some reviewers say helps with insomnia and anxiety.

    40. A comfy bath pillow that will suction straight to your tub, giving you both the physical *and* emotional support you need to go on the sudsy Netflix marathon of your Friday night dreams.

    41. A "sport-brella," which is an SPF 50+ maneuverable personal umbrella with a universal clamp that'll latch onto any chair you own. Boom, instant shade no matter where you've parked your human self, whether it's the porch, the beach, or the park.

    42. A plush memory foam mattress topper to quickly transform any old spring mattress into an oasis — this helps distribute your weight on your mattress more evenly to reduce pressure on your joints, so you're less likely to toss and turn.

    43. A blister-preventing balm that basically magics an extra layer between your skin and your shoe when you're breaking them in and can't avoid the extra friction.
