    36 Cheap Products That Will Probably Feel Like A Total Luxury

    Honestly, you might want to grow an extra head just to enjoy this shampoo scalp massager twice.

    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. A sparkling-wine saver to keep your bubblies bubbling, so you can pop your prosecco any day of the week without worrying about wasting the leftovers.

    A model sealing and then pumping the saver cap on a bottle of wine

    I purchased one of these at the aggressive behest of a friend, and it's LEGIT. I told myself I was a Red Wine Lady my whole life because it was easier to save for later, but now that I don't live in constant fear of wasting the bubbly stuff, I am an All Wine Lady and have finally achieved my truest form.

    Promising review: "This product was a real surprise for me, I was never able to keep my bubblies as fresh and bubbly after the first opening. Three days later, and my expensive BRUT tastes just as nice. Frankly, this is probably going to become my go-to gift from now on... pair a nice bottle to it and voila! Thumbs up!" —RonBY

    2. A set of 50,000 (!!) highly popular, 100% biodegradable water beads that are basically microscopic when they arrive, but expand into small, bouncy jelly-like balls when exposed to water. People love them for at-home spa treatments, for fun games with kids, for making stress balls, for home decorating — the word is your water bead oyster.

    Promising review: "Quarantine made me do it but I’m not sorry. Don’t bother buying the expensive name brand Orbeez — these are essentially the same and work great. My kids LOVE these! A million uses and great for all ages of kids (except for babies). We have filled up a huge bin and used cups to scoop and play. We have put them in the water table outside. We have used a funnel to fill up balloons and make homemade squishy stress balls. We have made foot spas. We have talked about filling a baby wading pool and lounging, but I’m not willing to buy enough. 😂TIPS — a small amount of these goes a LONG way. About half the beads in this container will fill up half of a Rubbermaid garage storage tub. Just pour them into your container with a large amount of water and wait, wait, wait. Did I mention WAIT — It will take ONE TO TWO DAYS for them to fully expand, so plan ahead!!! We’ve gotten hours of fun and I’ve also heard they’re good for gardens, so you can dispose of them there when you’re done (though you might want to do your own research on that one!)" —Deeber

    3. A rainbow prism suncatcher you can easily hang indoors or out to refract sunlight and make a bunch of teensy little rainbows all over the place, like you're living in your own little magical realm.


    Promising review: "This might be the best thing I’ve ever purchased. My room looks magical on sunny afternoons. If you love yourself buy these crystals. Not only are the rainbows pretty but the crystals are too." —Tiffany Tyree

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $9.99.

    4. A soft silicone coffee straw designed to be super gentle on your teeth and mouth and help prevent you from getting a ton of coffee stains on your teeth. Its thin design means it can slide right into the sipping hole of small caps like Starbucks, too.

    The Grommet

    It works for both iced *and* hot coffee, and is also completely dishwasher-safe.

    5. A shampoo scalp massager you can use in the shower to massage and exfoliate your scalp, not just helping promote hair health and growth, but making showers feel 800 times more decadent than they have any right to be.

    The silicone bristles of the massager

    Promising review: I cannot explain how good this feels when your using it! It relaxes you and for sure is better than just using your fingertips to shampoo your hair. It actually goes down to the roots and makes sure that it gets into all the spots it can to clean your hair. I can tell you right now that my hair has never felt more smoother than after I started using this product. I would definitely recommend this!" —Romie Patel

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in three colors).

    6. A mini cast-iron Dutch oven from the Cravings by Chrissy Teigen line to make decadent individual servings of mac 'n' cheese, egg bakes, and chocolate cakes galore, then eat it straight from the bowl the way god and Chrissy intended.

    Get it from Target for $9.99.

    7. A pair of vintage cat-eye sunglasses that come in so many colors it will be virtually impossible not to find one that matches your 'tude.,

    Promising review: "These are perfect. I ordered these for summer and just wanted some cute cat eye sunnies little did I know these were better than what I had expected and maybe even better than the more expensive version from Nordstrom Quay. I will be ordering again! They aren't too tight on my head and feel like an expensive pair!" —Kat

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in nine styles, including a blue light-blocking one).

    8. A leak-proof sphere ice mold to make everything you drink feel so top shelf and fancy that you may just spend the rest of quarantine writing a self-insert James Bond fan fiction.,

    Promising review: "These spherical ice cube makers are a lot of fun. Given that they're pretty cheap, I really wish I had bought them earlier! I was able to get significantly clearer spheres of ice when I boiled tap water before freezing (I poured it into the mold while it was still hot)." —dyanecek

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $9.99 (available in eight shapes).

    9. A set of super chic reusable, washable mesh bags in assorted colors, so there will always be one that just *happens* to match your outfit (totally by accident!).

    Get a set of five from Amazon for $14.98.

    10. A jar of Aztec healing clay masks for acne that essentially suck the gunk out of your pores (and pre-existing acne) like a vacuum, and will leave your skin feeling so smooth and firm you'll want to pet it.

    People in the reviews are also singing its praises for reducing the size of their pores! Many of them advise mixing the mask with apple cider vinegar for best results.

    Promising review: "I woke up with six tiny pimples on my right cheek this morning. This was delivered today so I decided to give it a try. Mixed with water, left on for 10-15 minutes. The pimples are gone. I’ve never bought a product that has had such immediate results. This is magic. I can’t believe I waited so long to buy it." —Samantha Jensen

    Get it from Amazon for $12.79.

    11. A dainty beaded face mask chain to keep your mask on your person while you're driving in the car between errands.

    Firefly Feeling Bright/Etsy

    Firefly Feeling Bright is a Florida-based Etsy shop established in 2019 that specializes in artisanal jewelry.

    Promising review: "Love this beaded mask chain! Arrived quickly. I get many compliments every time I wear it. Perfect for work where I have to wear a mask while for long periods of time." —Meredith Pollack

    Get it from Firefly Feeling Bright on Etsy for $7.

    12. A small crushed ice machine with a *ton* of useful purposes — people mention using it for homemade Sno Cones, Frappuccinos, or even just a fix for anyone who loves crushed ice from the gas station or fast food restaurants they might not to get to very often now.

    Promising review: "I really like crushed (read: Sonic) ice, but I've not been getting soft drinks there since the pandemic started up. So, I decided to try this. For the price, I was surprised how good this gadget is. My half-moon ice cubes from my ice maker fit well, I can do about eight cubes at a time. The cranking is not hard, just make sure it's on a surface that the rubber feet can grip. I like the ice texture." —CJG

    Get it from Amazon for $20.98.

    13. An assortment of international snacks so you can take a whole trip around the globe without ever leaving the living room.

    An assortment of snacks in crackers, cakes, and cookies

    Each assortment is a mix of salty and sweet, and is curated so meltables like chocolate don't ship out in the warmer months!

    Promising review: "Fun quarantine activity. The kids absolutely LOVED this, they acted like YouTube unboxers😅 We really liked the guide that they sent us. We will be purchasing more from this brand." —Mandy

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    14. A pair of ridiculously soft seamless bike shorts from Free People perfect for wearing under your favorite summer dresses, running errands, or lounging around the house.

    Emma Lord/BuzzFeed, Free People

    These shorts come in a bazillion rotating colors because they sell out so quickly you might blink and miss them. I own a pair in pink (that is me being v cheeky above) and can confirm that they are so comfortable that I genuinely had to look down and make sure I wasn't naked a few times, but still opaque enough to venture out into the world without worrying about everyone seeing your booty. I probably own 10 pairs of bike shorts now (don't look at me), and these are the comfiest by far.

    Promising review: "From the comfortable stretching fabric to the integrated design, these are my go-to for exercise shorts or when I want a little more under a short dress. Even the label info is printed, so no bumps, seams or uncomfortable tags to worry about. So comfortable you could forget you have them on." —Larimar

    Get it from Free People for $20 (available in women's sizes XS-L and five colors).

    15. A tiny milk frother to make everything you drink so decadent it will taste like it was lovingly handcrafted by a barista.


    It's also teensy for storing and cleans with a quick stream of hot running water! We stan a convenient appliance!!

    Promising review: "Admittedly I have a slight addiction to Starbucks Chai Tea Latte. With almost all the stores temporarily closed in my area, I looked on line for a DIY chai tea similar to SB. Found one but it was missing the delicious frothy latte topping. Soooo I bought the Milk Boss. For less than $16 on Amazon, this frother does some serious froth-ing! Since I don’t have a cappuccino maker and don’t want to crowd my countertops, this handy kitchen tool is magical — works well with heavy cream, half n half, etc. Incredible and quick results." —Elizabeth

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95 (available in 10 colors).

    16. A gorgeous pastel paint-by-number with an end result so beautiful you'll want to frame it in the front hall — nay, tack it right to the front door. This is what you see when you look up "aesthetic" in the dictionary.

    A water color of a single pink flower in a vase on a rustic table

    Each set comes with a detailed numbered outline, three brushes, and a set of numbered acrylic paints with extra to spare.

    Promising review: "I loved this painting! I was weird that it wouldn’t look right but it turned out perfect! Way more than enough paint! Some lighter colors you had to go over twice." —Anonymous

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    17. A rose gold rechargeable electric lighter to replace all your old gas ones. This one is not only chic as heck, but completely flameless, and made with a long stem so you can use them to light gas burners and larger candles.

    A rose gold lighter with an electric current
    Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

    This also comes in other pretty colors, but I am especially partial to this one because I bought it for my parents (their kitchen is entirely pink and one of my favorite places on Earth), and this was SO EASY to use — not to mention super safe! I'm a big weenie about fire (lol, self-preservation) so I've always stuck to extended arm gas lighters, but this is much better for the environment (plus cuter), so I feel a lot better about using it.

    Promising review: "Wow. This thing is amazing. Small and so easy to use. My husband kept saying it won’t actually light anything and was blown away when it did. We lit candles and paper to use as tinder with absolutely no effort. No fuel needed. Just a quick recharging. And no waste in throwing away those huge and never easy to use butane sticks. Love love it. Easy buying process so I would recommend everyone buy one." —Diane Bold

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (available in five colors).

    18. A travel-sized whipped shower frosting so even those of us without bathtubs can feel decadent as heck while we're getting our suds on. Each of these comes with three unique layers of soapy ~frosting~, in so many combos that it might actually make your mouth water.

    Indulgence Spa/Etsy

    Indulgence Spa is a Maryland-based, Black woman-owned Etsy shop established in 2015 that specializes in soaps, hair care, and body products.

    Promising review: "These were SO GOOD, I can't wait to order more. They foam up way more than you think they will! If you ever start selling body lotions, please let me know!" —alterashley

    Get it from Indulgence Spa on Etsy for $5 (available in over 50 scent combinations).

    19. A set of eye-popping fine point pens designed for planners and journals, so you can keep your ink as fresh as your thoughts.

    The pens on a written page demonstrating the color/thickness of the ink

    Perhaps most importantly for anyone out there planning to go full Leslie Knope on these is that they're designed not to bleed through thin pages!

    Promising review: "I have dabbled with bullet journaling and love using my Rocketbook products to take notes during meetings, but for my weekly planners, the pens that are compatible with Rocketbook just weren't cutting it. These pens are smooth and quick-drying (essential for a lefty!) and the colors are vibrant and bright. I love how thin the tips are, it makes fitting all of my notes neatly in planner a possibility! Having 18 colors to choose from gives me simple joy when it comes to planning my day, and they help to organize my thoughts and color code categories. I'm pleasantly surprised by even how well the 'Lake Blue' color pops, I had been thinking it was going to be nice for adding emphasis to outlining boxes etc, but it's bright enough to be easy to read on white paper!! Wonderful product!" —Katie

    Get a set of 18 from Amazon for $7.99.

    20. A set of adorable hanging cat spoons, because truly, is there a more purrrfect weekend breakfast companion than one that will stir your coffee and your heart?


    Promising review: "I loved these spoons so much that I ordered more for myself and my mother in-law. They attach to the side of your coffee mug easily, stay put, and don't even get in the way when you are drinking out of it." —Handy

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $4.95 (available in four colors).

    21. A massive variety pack of tea bags from Taylors of Harrogate, an independent family tea and coffee company that's been working at perfecting its flavors since 1886.

    A box with the variety of teas

    The box includes 48 tea bags in total, with six of each of these flavors: English Breakfast, Earl Grey, Decaffeinated Breakfast, Lemon & Orange, Pure Assam, Green Tea with Jasmine, Organic Peppermint, and Organic Chamomile.

    Promising review: "*in Oprah voice* I LOVE THIS TEA! Taylors of Harrogate Green Tea with Jasmine has quickly become one of my favorite boxed teas. I received a box via Prime samples and have bought three boxes since then. I really love this stuff! The flavor feels light but tastes full. I'm not a fan of jasmine-flavored things but this tea has a sweet and light floral flavor I love. Also, I have a fondness for large mugs but only need 1 bag (at a 2-min steep) for my 12 oz mugs. Normally I need two so it's nice to save money. And speaking of which, this tea is SO AFFORDABLE! Right now it's less than $4 and Taylors seem to always have a 20% off coupon on here. You can't beat that price especially for their quality! I digress. I'm so happy I found this tea and will continue to drink it unless they change it somehow." —Kay

    Get it from Amazon for $11.49.

    22. A temporary tattoo you can get in a whoooole bunch of different designs, whether you're just feeling yourself or genuinely want to test out what it'd be like to have a tattoo before getting permanently inked.

    Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

    Tattoorary is an Etsy shop established in 2014 and based in the Netherlands that specializes in temporary tattoos, offering a large range of sizes, colors, and designs. Each tattoo lasts from two days to a week.

    I am *obsessed* with these temporary tattoos — I waited for ages to get them, and I wish I'd done it much sooner, because I've had such a blast mix and matching them every week this summer as a fun quarantine distraction! They transfer beautifully with warm water and look like legitimate tattoos (my neighbor truly thought I'd gotten some great ink), and are so easy and gentle to remove with a light scrub in the shower.

    Get them from Tattoorary on Etsy: the vintage floral tattoo for $8, and the little birds tattoo for $3.

    23. A "wine wand" to remove sulfates and histamines from your beloved wines in as little as three minutes, so you can enjoy a glass or two at your leisure on Friday night without waking up to your skull aching on Saturday morning.

    The metal "wand" dipped in a white, red, and rosé wine

    Promising review: "What a difference these have made in my life. With my allergies it was impossible to enjoy a glass or two of wine without nasty side effects: stuffy nose, red face, and headaches. Now I can have a glass of wine and not have to dart to a package of antihistamine! Makes a great gift. Even thinking of splitting a box into stocking stuffers. Each wand is individually wrapped. Have purchased these several times and will continue to do so." —KellyH

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $11.99.

    24. A bunch of teensy macaron boxes you can use to upgrade so many little corners of your life, whether it's storing pills, jewelry, cash, or just as a cute display in a pastel room.

    Tiny macaron boxes holding pills and jewelry

    Promising review: "Just received these cute little boxes and am in love with them. Very thick and sturdy plastic but easy enough to open. These will work perfectly for filling solid perfumes and giving out as stocking stuffer gifts as I don't have to worry about it being a snug fit/lid falling off. I imagine these would also be great for pretend food for kids play-sets or for a kids trinket box. Overall I love them, love their feel, love the colors and am very happy." —Mary

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $6.99.

    25. A wine caddy for your bath tub perfect for any tub vibe, whether it's "set off a bath bomb and channel my inner mermaid" or "sit here and watch reruns of The Office until the water dissolves around me."

    A wine caddy suctioned to a tub

    Bonus: it also holds cans, so you can pop in a LaCroix or enjoy a shower PBR, if you're feeling yourself.

    Promising review: Such a simple idea, how is this just coming into my life now? I didn't think showers could get any better but now I have a brew/wine within reach at all times. Really helps take the edge off after a long day. The thing is way sturdier than you'd expect, I've tugged on it and it's not going anywhere. The slotted design allows you to use stemmed wineglasses too. A truly perfect product. This $13 piece of plastic is working as hard as my therapist and I stan." —Steven

    Get it from Amazon for $13.95+ (available in five colors).

    26. A small reusable wrap-around cold pack for finger and wrist pain relief that will feel oooooohh so good on your poor hands after another bajillion hour long day typing away at the computer.

    Reviewer with glossy lips holding up the lip gloss

    The flavors include Mint, Rosehip, Mango, Coconut, and Argan oil.

    Promising review: "The cute little package that these glosses came in came pretty fast. The glosses themselves are moisturizing, come out easy, and VERY thick. If I ever run out (I feel like I won’t for years — a little of this goes a long way) I’d purchase this again." —nessie

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $4.70 (available in six flavor combos).

    29. A bottle of Mike's Hot Honey, so you can add a pinch of sweet and a kick of spice to — well, just about anything. If you can dream it, you can hot honey it. (Pro-tip, though: drizzle it on grilled cheese.)

    A bottle of the honey drizzled on pizza

    Promising review: "This is now a staple for my kitchen. How I cooked without it before, I'll never know. Makes the best vinaigrette ever, quick pan sauces for pork, unexpected zip in dozens of dishes. Does it come in gallons? Have given it as hostess gifts several times and everyone gets hooked." —Martha Ronemus

    Check out BuzzFeed's review of Mike's Hot Honey for more info!

    Get it from Amazon for $9.49.

    30. A pretty pink, super-soft Makeup Eraser that wipes makeup right off your face with nothing but water and a gentle scrub — and, more importantly, has a microfiber blend specifically designed to clear gunk from your pores and prevent blackheads and breakouts in the long run, too.


    It's got two sides — one that can wipe off all your makeup with water and a light scrubbing, and another that exfoliates your skin. Plus, all you have to do when you're done using it is wet it and hang it up to dry! No more wasting money on icky washcloths that hurt your skin!!! I can hear your pores singing from here.

    Promising review: "THIS. THING. IS. AMAZING. I have literally never had clearer skin. It does exactly what it says it does: erases your makeup. Waterproof or not, it all goes away with just a little water and a little bit of scrubbing. I will forever be amazed by this. Never buying another makeup remover product again." —Brittany

    Check out BuzzFeed's review of the Makeup Eraser for more deets!

    Get it from Amazon for $20 (available in five colors).

    Get it from Urban Cheesecraft on Etsy for $14.

    32. A set of satin pillowcases that create less friction for your hair, so you don't have to wake up every morning ten minutes early to work through your tangles. It's also ridiculously cooling on your skin in the summer months.


    I got a set of these for my bed, and although my hair is baseline pretty wild no matter what state of existence I'm in, the overnight tangles have pretty much stopped. If I put my hair up in a scrunchie, I'll usually wake up with it more or less still intact, too (which is especially nice if I'm late for my ~morning power walk~ around the neighborhood). Most of all, though, it's soooo nice to sink your face into these in the hot summer, especially when your AC is subpar (*glares at mine from across the room*).

    Promising review: "Couldn't afford silk so ordered these. I love them. I've heard that sleeping on cotton is like rubbing your face on steel wool all night since that's how delicate the skin there is. All I know is I shower and style my hair at night and after sleeping on these, my hair looked freshly blown dry the next morning. I'm not exaggerating, hair looked the exact same in morning as it did after I styled it the night before. So, if this material is that nurturing to my hair I can only imagine how my face is loving it. I'm hooked and will be buying more colors." —BinaryCode

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $9.99 (available in seven colors and three sizes).

    33. A bottle of unusual cocktail bitters to seriously amp up your home-bartending skills with unusual and ridiiiiiculously delicious flavor combos like "Earl Grey" and "Japanese Chili & Lime."

    Emma Lord/BuzzFeed, 1821

    18.21 is an Atlanta-based, women- and queer-owned business established in 2014 that specializes in unusual bitters flavors and cocktail syrups. The Earl Grey bitters are bergamot-forward and with notes of vanilla and pair best with gin, bourbon, whiskey, and amaro; the Japanese Chili & Lime bitters are spicy with notes of citrus and smoke, and are ideal for spicy margaritas, Blood Marys, or any cocktail that could use an extra kick. I've tried Japanese Chili & Lime in bourbon and it is the *chef's kiss* perfect combo of heat + pucker!

    You can check out the full line of bitters for more unusual flavors.

    Get it from 18.21: the Earl Grey bitters for $9.99+ and the Japanese Chili & Lime bitters for $9.99+ (available in two sizes).

    34. A rapid egg cooker so you'll finally get the kind of ~dream eggs~ that make your home cooking feel like room service, whether you want a good old-fashioned hard boil or like 'em a little runnier.

    A transparent domed egg cooker with six eggs cooking inside

    I, a certified Lazy Individual (TM), own one of these babies and have faithfully used it every week for upward of two years. Perfectly medium-boiled eggs every time. I even bought one for my parents so I could spread its majesty to them as well (but also mostly so I could use it when I come to visit, if we're being real). Some reviews note that the alarm on it is a little loud, but the new models have significantly decreased the volume!

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my life?! This little gadget has really made my life easier! No more having to stand around keeping an eye on the water to be boiling just right. Just turn this little baby on and go about your business until the adorable music comes on to alert you that it's done. I've gotten perfect hard-boiled eggs every time! Just please be sure to follow the directions to pierce the eggs with the included needle. It is surprisingly easy! I highly recommend this item!!" —BeautyBird

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in five colors).

    35. Essence's Lash Princess mascara for length so effective, it will make your eyelashes look like they could take flight, but natural enough that they won't be mistaken for falsies.

    A reviewer with long lashes holding up the mascara

    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 like crazy...and this stuff doesn’t budge! I love it!!" —Carrie E Miller

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    36. A set of succulent candles with a timeless kind of sophistication — you can light these up any season of the year and be like, "Yup, that's the mood."
