    1. A knee stabilizer band for knee pain relief both in the short term *and* long term, whether you get it from running, hiking, team sports, or jumping up and down every time you hear a Bruno Mars song start playing at a wedding reception.

    2. A handy as heck sunburn soother you'll probably want to stock up on now to have on hand this summer — it's made with aloe and coconut oil to hydrate skin and gently relieve pain from the sun's unforgiving rays within just a few hours.

    3. A highly reviewed contoured sleep mask designed to sit off the eyes to alleviate pressure, and also to completely block out the light in the room. It also has a strap designed not to get tangled in hair, and is made with a super cozy memory foam, so it'll be extremely there for your face.

    4. A jar of internet-beloved The Pink Stuff, which will truly do a number on everything from dirty stove tops to grimy sinks to caked-over ovens. A lot of people compare it to the Magic Eraser in paste form, so even your weirdest, most stubborn stains will meet their match.

    Promising review: "Okay. So I rarely review things, but I had to review this stuff. I love this stuff! It is amazing. I had tried everything. Elbow grease, scrubs, magic eraser, etc. The stains on the wall behind my stove would NOT even budge a little. Disgusting! I got to the point I had given up and I was just gonna sand it down and add some kind of wipeable backsplash. I had bought this because of TikTok lol. So I decided to give it the ultimate test and use on my wall beside my stove and let me tell you, I’m so impressed! It took a little elbow grease and scrubbing, but considering everything I tried before never worked, I’m so happy with the results! Buy this stuff. But not too much. Save some for me. 🤣" —Marion C.

    5. A pair of compression gloves designed to help alleviate pain from carpal tunnel and arthritis, so you can type at your keyboard without an internal monologue of "ow OW ow owwwww" for the majority of your workday.

    6. 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 — an especially handy tool when many of us can't head to a salon like we normally would.

    7. A delightful little tool called the "Bug Bite Thing" that suctions on all kinds of bug bites to reduce swelling, itchiness, and redness.

    9. A set of satin pillowcases that are gentle on your skin and create less friction for your hair, so you don't have to wake up every morning 10 minutes early to work through your tangles. It's also ridiculously cooling in the summer months.

    10. 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.

    11. A heavy duty grout cleaner you only need to let sit for 10 minutes before you can scrub the dirt and grime off all those sneaky crevices of your old kitchen and bathroom tiles.

    13. A foaming garbage disposal cleaner you can plop into your sink, run a little water on, and let its blue magic fizz its way up to the top while clearing out all the gunk and gross smells from your culinary adventures in one go.

    14. A fume-free oven cleaner that's gentle enough that you don't need protective gloves to use it, but tough enough that it'll erase the evidence of all your baking misadventures and that time you fell asleep while cooking pizza rolls.

    15. A portable paw cleaner with soft silicone bristles to help gently remove mud and dirt from your doggo's paws. All you have to do is add a little water to it, insert your dog's paw, twist, then pat the paw dry and repeat.

    16. A popular streak-free anti-fog spray you can quickly apply to eyeglasses, sunglasses, and face shields to prevent them from fogging up while you're wearing a mask instead of adjusting them every few minutes and hoping for the best.

    19. A foot file to remove calluses and hard or cracked skin from your feet with some gentle, pain-free rubbing. It works whether your feet are dry or wet at the time, and will leave your heels so soft you might start petting them.

    20. A ridiculously popular "cat dancer" toy so both you and your furry bud can break a sweat indoors chasing after it — and, of course, chronicle the absurd shenanigans for Instagram. WWCD, friends. (What Would Crookshanks Do?)

    21. 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.

    24. A cold brew coffee maker so gloriously easy to use that all you have to do is stick your favorite ground coffee in the filter, seal the airtight lid on top, and pop it in the fridge overnight. Boom, 4 cups of cold brew.

    25. 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 watching all of TikTok while you're waiting yourself out.

    29. 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.

    30. A hip belt designed for sciatic, pelvic, lower back, and leg pain you can wear to help stabilize ye olde sacroiliac joint (aka, the joint in your lower back that causes pain in a lot of these areas when it's inflamed). It's super lightweight and breathable so you can wear it for long periods of time, too.

    31. A power scrubber brush you can attach to a DRILL (!!) that basically does all of the hard grime-busting for you, so you don't have to have sore arms for a week just because you dared to wipe down the shower.

    32. A bottle of Tend Skin Solution to help take care of painful razor bumps, ingrown hair, and razor burn so you don't have to spend hours psyching yourself up to shave knowing that you're gonna be dodging a bazillion sensitive spots on your skin.

    35. An orthotic shoe insert for plantar's fasciitis (aka, that pain in your heel that sometimes gets bad enough for you to be like "feet are a scam") — these slip right into your shoe to help cradle the heel not only to relieve pain right then, but heal it in the long-term, too.

    36. A broom for pet and human hair that can work on any type of floor, but is specifically designed to pull it up from the carpet faster and deeper than even a lot of vacuums can reach. In less than five minutes you'll find out what color your carpet's *actually* been the whole time!

    37. A set of Bottle Bright tablets so you can tackle all those caked-on stains in your bottles, travel mugs, and even coffee makers without scrubbing them into eternity and wasting a bunch of water.

    40. A TubShroom, a little gizmo you can stick in your shower drain to catch all your hair before it clogs up your pipes and becomes a living nightmare. The hair coils around it to make it even easier to remove, making it both handy *and* semi-horrifying!

    43. A quick detangling brush with an easy-to-hold handle that's so effective on all hair types that it's amassed over 29,000 5-star reviews on Amazon — TRULY a game-changer for people with long hair that tangles easily, or curls they don't want to impact the texture of by over-brushing.

    44. A roll-on migraine stick made with peppermint, spearmint, and lavender oils to help you soothe away that vague headache you were nursing through the whole week in the comfort of your own jammies.

    47. A rapid egg cooker so you can cook a week's worth of breakfast eggs in a matter of minutes, whether you want a good old-fashioned hard boil or like 'em a little runnier. Because it uses steam to cook the eggs instead of traditional boiling, they're also a heck of a lot easier to peel!

    48. A jewelry-cleaning stick with cleansing solution on a brush designed specifically to get in the nooks and crannies of your jewelry, so you can get some sparkly-as-heck Instagrams without wasting your time or money taking it back to the jeweler for a cleaning.

    49. A smudgeproof eyeliner stamp so you can finally get the perfect cat-eye on the first go without having to ~wing it~ (read: wasting eight cotton balls, half a bottle of eye makeup remover, and all of the minutes you were setting aside to make your morning coffee).
