    47 Products Reviewers Loved So Much They Called Them The “Best” They’d Tried

    Why buy a decent winter hat, pre-seasoned skillet, and teeth whitening pen when you can buy the *best* versions of them all?

    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 beloved Carharrt beanie (that has over 35,000 positive reviews!!) to help you stave off the cold all winter long, keeping your noggin both super warm and — perhaps most importantly of all — color-coordinated to your other winter gear. This comes in so many colors that whoops, you might just buy three.,

    Promising review: "Best type of this hat I've owned. I like this particular hat because it's long enough that, if it's really cold, you can pull the hat all the way down and double the fabric over your ears to keep them warmer. Most types of these hats I find are not deep enough to do that. So this is by far my favorite cold weather hat. Carhartt put some thought into this hat, and it paid off. Superior." —Dave

    *Another* promising review: "This is the warmest, best hat ever. I've never really worn hats, living in California, but have had to go to Minnesota and other cold places recently for work, and it keeps my head SO WARM. It's soft (I hate even the tiniest bit of scratchy feeling) and the purple sage color is muted and elegant and lovely. I don't think I will ever buy another kind of hat again!" —Lia

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in one size and 28 styles).

    2. A 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.

    A reviewer image of a person wearing unfogged glasses with their face mask holding up the spray

    Promising review: "I have tried everything to keep my glasses from fogging with my mask and this product is by far the best. I'm sorry I waited so long to purchase it. I live in the Florida Keys and do a lot of diving and snorkeling and it works fabulous for my dive mask also. I would highly recommend Optix 55 fog gone. Great price, also I think this bottle will last a very long time." —Bebe

    Get it from Amazon for $10.55.

    3. An orthopedic memory foam pillow designed for back, stomach, *and* side sleepers — in other words, the One Pillow To Rule Them All for those of us who flip flop during the night. This molds to your neck and head to fully support you and prevent muscle strain in your neck and shoulders.


    Promising review: "I'm a side sleeper and I've been looking for a good pillow that feels comfortable for side sleepers because most of them I end up having neck pain. I found this one and saw all the positive reviews and so far this is the best pillow I bought. Very very comfortable and the form that it has for more comfort in the neck is just perfect. You can use it as a back sleeper or side sleeper without any issues whatsoever. You just flip it as you needed. So far so good. The warranty is great and customer service as well. Recommended!" —Darwin J.

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in three sizes).

    4. A pair of incredibly soft hybrid leggings and joggers that are basically what happens if those two types of pants have a ridiculously comfy, highly functional baby.,

    Promising review: "Best sweatpants ever. I can't explain how genuinely happy I am that these pants fit. I have trouble finding pants that fit AND are comfortable AND look good and i just found all three. These pants are very comfortable and soft but not see through even if you stretch it. The material seems thin enough to let you breathe but thick and durable enough to last 1-3+ years. (Hard to tell based on one wear, will update as time goes by.) Ordered a 3x and it fits perfectly. I also usually hate wide waistbands especially on my belly but this one is very soft and just mostly feels like extra layers of fabric, but is still pretty secure on your waist. Will definitely buy multiple pairs. :)" —Stacey

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in women's sizes S-3X and dozens of colors).

    5. A foot file just as effective — if not more so! — than going to a salon. This will 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.

    Promising review: "The best callus grater ever! No, seriously people, this thing works!!! The calluses on my feet were so bad they looked like something that could snatch dinner out of a lake. I was skeptical at first because my feet were so bad but after using this amazing callus grater, I am sold. One use and my heels are completely soft. I wish I would have taken before and after pictures. I recommend grating with light steady pressure as I can see hard pressure might rip your heel off. But in all seriousness, this thing is a miracle worker and I highly recommend this product." —Jeff

    Get it from Amazon for $8.95.

    6. 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.

    FWIW re: scars, though, this stuff really works. I had thyroid surgery a few years ago and Bio-Oil took me from looking like I'd stumbled out of the Red Wedding to virtually no detectable scar within a few months. All I did was apply it once in the morning and once at night.

    Promising review: "This is by far the BEST skin care I have found. I have sun-damaged skin and it has helped more than anything I have used. If used as directed it will not only fade scars, it will also fade brown spots. I use this twice daily and have been using for probably a year now and see a remarkable difference in my skin's appearance. I use instead of lotion, as it absorbs really well." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $8.89 (available in three sizes).

    7. A pair of thick touchscreen-friendly gloves with pads to better grip your phone and text from it, so you don't have to risk frostbite every time you text "five min away!!" (which we all knew in our hearts was a lie anyway).

    Promising review: "I love these gloves. These fit well, they are soft, and warm. The pads on the palm and fingers give the a sure grip and the nodules on the thumb and two fingers allow me to use my iPhone without taking them off. These are the best gloves I've ever had." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in sizes M-XL and five colors).

    8. A bottle of Elizavecca Hair Treatment, a repairing mask infused with collagen ingredients and protein extracts that will help restore hair health as effectively as the bigger name brands like Olaplex, but without their price tag. All you gotta do is apply it on wet hair after a shampoo, wait five minutes, and rinse it out.

    Promising review: "I have naturally blonde, medium length, more coarse hair that gets damaged from heat styling and is just naturally dry. I was looking for a hair mask to help heal my dry ends and just general damage. I followed the directions on the box, and left it in my hair for 15 mins, and rinsed my hair, and styled as normal, and my hair has never been so sleek, and NOT weighed down, and the hair cuticles are together, and not frizzy. AND it's sooooo humid outside today and my hair stayed looking fresh. BONUS! I've tried so many masks and treatments that have weighed down my hair or left a weird residue, this is the best one I've ever tried. For my hair length/thickness, I could get about five treatments from this size of a bottle." —Annie J.

    Get a bottle from Amazon for $7.40.

    9. And SheaMoisture's Smoothie Curl Enhancing Cream, a moisture-restoring formula that helps define curls and make them✨shine✨ without weighing them down.,

    Promising review: "Best low porosity curl smoothie. Love this for my low porosity 4a/4b Hair. My hair is so soft, curly, and moisturized after using this curl smoothie. I also do the LCO method on my hair and it performs well. Even two to three days after a twist-out, my hair is so soft!" —Bonner

    Get it from Amazon for $10.49.

    10. A moisturizing lavender and coconut hand soap made with aloe vera and a blend of lavender and orange essential oils so you can get your hands squeaky clean without your skin feeling shriek-y clean.

    Promising review: "I love everything about this hand soap! It has really helped soothe my dry, chapped hands. As a result, I don't get the occasional splits in my fingertips from the dry skin. This soap is very moisturizing and smells wonderful! The price is great, too. I've tried many different types of hand soaps over the years to help heal my hands and this is the best I have ever experienced! Highly recommend!!" —Marie Blu

    Get a three-count pack from Amazon for $12.78.

    11. 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.

    Reviewer image of glass of red wine with a bottle of Drop It, along with a caption explaining that it's been working

    Plus, this is a heck of a lot easier to use if you want to drink out at a restaurant without calling attention to yourself. Drop It recommends 1-2 drops for each glass of white wine, 2-3 for a glass of red, and 7-9 if you're treating the whole bottle at once. Once it's in the glass, swirl lightly for 20 seconds, and you should be raring to go!

    Promising review: "This works! I had to stop drinking wine because the sulfites upset my system. I can now enjoy wine again (I drink white wine) I use 2 drops/glass and no more problems! I have tried several other products, but have found this to be the best in terms of price/value and effectiveness." —Judith S.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    12. A reliable wireless charging pad to unclutter your desk or bedside table — TBH, this thing charges so many of your gadgets it may end up being the only one you'll ever need.

    A model placing a phone down on a wireless black charging pad

    This little power bank can charge *deep breath*: the iPhone SE, 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max, Xs Max, XR, XS, X, 8, and 8 Plus; AirPods; and the Galaxy S20, S10, S9, S8, and Galaxy Note 10, 9, and 8.

    Promising review: "Best wireless charger on the market. I absolutely love this wireless charger. It is so much easier to just drop your phone on top of the pad than to have to fiddle around for a cord and plug in your phone at night before bed. It works well and chargers pretty fast. I use my adaptive fast charging brick that came with my phone (Samsung Galaxy Note 8) and it allows for fast wireless charging. I have recommended this product to my entire family and friends who have phones that allow wireless charging. The charging pad feels very nice and is very high quality. I've seen many other chargers at significantly higher prices and this one beats them all!" —Samuel Hernandez

    Get it from Amazon for $11.95.

    13. A painless, mint-flavored teeth-whitening pen for sensitive teeth and gums that can help lighten up years worth of stains from coffee, tea, wine, or just ... you know. Existing as a human with teeth.

    reviewer's before pic with yellow teeth and then after pic with much whiter teeth

    Promising review: "I’ve tried Crest strips without any noticeable improvement. My dentist offers free whitening, but that stuff is so harsh it blisters my gums on contact. The AsaVea whitening pen is the best whitening product I’ve ever used! I’ve had noticeable whitening in about a week, and it doesn’t irritate my gums. I only wish I took 'before' and 'after' pics!" —MDR

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $19.99.

    14. 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.


    This tool also helps soften skin by gently exfoliating as you use it!

    Promising review: "I’ve tried many different eyebrow/facial razors before. Hands down this is the best brand I have ever used. I love how it comes with an extra piece to go over the razor, When trimming/cleaning up your eyebrows! I highly recommend." —Brandy

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $4.99.

    15. An all-purpose car upholstery cleaner so you can go ham on the interior of your car and lift up all the stains in one deeply satisfying go.

    A before pic of a stained, grimy cloth car interior and and after pic of it without stains on it anymore

    Promising review: "I have been searching for a product that will clean every inch of my car and this has been the product that has produced the best results! My car is a 2003 and it has seen some messes, however I have been battling stains on my passenger seat and back seat carpet for years. I’ve tried every big name product to no avail. I cleaned my car on the afternoon of a Tuesday and by Wednesday morning the results stayed! I think I may go for a second round and see if I can make this car look brand new! Very impressed with this product!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    16. A set of dishwasher cleaning tablets you can pop into a cycle with your dirty dishes to wipe out all the extra grime and that funky smell you can never seem to get rid of no matter how hard you try. You don't even need to scrub — these do all the work for you!

    Promising review: "Best dishwasher cleaner yet. I've tried the other dishwasher cleaners. Some require require high temperature water to melt a wax plug. I don't want to add more chemical that will stick to the surfaces. Others don't require melting wax, but they leave a cloying 'fragrance' that lingers for several washers. This product was so easy to use: cut the tablet from its sealed pouch and drop it into the detergent chamber inside the dishwasher and just press start. That SIMPLE! When it was done, the inside appeared to sparkle. Most of the gunk that had built up around the door and all the surfaces were clean. AND there was no lingering cloying odor. It smelled like nothing. Perfect." —David

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $5.99.

    17. A *super* compact eight-in-one spiralizer that also grates cheese, juices fruits, and cuts ribbons, and more. All you have to do is change out one of the interlocking caps for a new function. Fresh squeezed OJ? Zoodles in the air fryer? Grated parmesan on your pasta? Done, done, and done. (And you never have to say "when"!!)

    Emma Lord/BuzzFeed, Amazon

    I recently purchased this because it was my cheapest option for making zoodles, and also because my apartment is the size of a shoebox and there was no room for anything bigger. I LOVE how easy it is to swap out the caps to do other things, too — I've started grating my own cheeses and feel very fancy. But mostly I just love that it's very safe to use (it comes with a finger guard!), super easy to figure out, very compact, and even has measurements on the inside of the cup if you're ever portioning things out for a recipe.

    Promising review: "This is the second spiralizer that I have purchased, and by far the best I have used. Its super easy to use and to clean. My other spiralizer that I had was difficult to clean properly and I want to use they as often as possible so the use and cleaning of the product is very important! Fullstar Vegetable Spiralizer is a great product and I will be purchasing more to give as gifts for the holiday season. I would definitely recommend. A+++ item." —Yvonne I

    Get it from Amazon for $12.97.

    18. A set of soft, workout-friendly Reebok masks for anyone who has been trying to run in the summer heat or work out in the gym without feeling too stifled.

    Reebok, Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

    I ordered two packs of these on a whim, and WOW, do I love them. Despite the shipping time they actually arrived in two days, and I think they're my favorite running mask so far. The material is protective but lightweight, with sort of a wetsuit feel. It stays locked in place while I'm running, even though I sweat buckets in the heat. The seams are so subtle that they don't irritate my face. Also, I feel really cool wearing them, which is saying something, because I am the least cool person I know. Note: I got the M/L size and tied the elastic straps for a tighter fit; XS/S seems more geared at kids and people with smaller faces.

    Promising review: "This is an awesome workout mask!! Very breathable material with a pocket for adding a filter. By far the best fitness mask I’ve purchased so far. I highly recommend purchasing this for serious fitness advocates." —DAKOTA86SW

    Another promising review: "Best performance mask I've tried. Perfect for long cardio intensive workouts. Sweat doesn’t impact performance as much as others." —Reebok Customer

    Type Of Fit: Elastic ear straps

    Pocket For Filter: Yes

    Fabric Type: Recycled Polyester & Elastane

    Shipping Time: Expected to ship in 6-7 business days

    Get a set of three from Reebok for $30.

    19. 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: "This is the best mascara. I have had the worst time finding a mascara that I like. I have tried everything. I have heard about a different brand that i think is a bit pricey, but was will to try it because i could not find anything i liked. I went on Amazon to order the pricey brand and saw. I saw all the great reviews and the photos and the GREAT PRICE. For the price I had to try it. When I received and tried it, I immediately ordered one for my mom to try. She loved it also. This is my new mascara. you won't go wrong with this!" —Monica Spisak

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    20. A tiny milk frother so you can start concocting your own cozy café drinks so delicious that you might just start a new TikTok trend.


    It's also teensy for storing and cleans with a quick stream of hot running water, and works on cold *and* hot beverages.

    Promising review: "Best frother that I've ever used ... very comfortable to use and powerful too. Got this to replace another branded one that zonked out on me after only a couple of months. Love love this frother. I use it to 'blend' my morning coffee with coconut oil. This frother is more powerful than my last. The stand is a nice little bonus to keep the frother off the table and from rolling off the counter. The handle is very comfortable to hold. The back (if the label is facing you), has an index finger rest. I highly recommend this frother." —N Duong

    Get it from Amazon for $13.95 (available in 10 colors).

    21. An enzyme-based laundry stain remover that works its magic in one wash to help you instantly get rid of all that discolored dried sweat and deodorant residue in the armpits of your favorite summer clothes.

    A before image of a stained shirt and an after image of it without stains

    This spray also does a number on all those other miscellaneous stains in your life, like wine, coffee, oil, make up, and period blood!

    Promising review: "For whatever reason, I am ALWAYS spilling things on my shirts and I cook every night (sometimes I remember the apron, sometimes I don't). My clothes are a mess by the end of the day. I'm not proud of it, but there it is. I have tried EVERYTHING there is to remove stains and this is the absolute BEST thing out there. (There is simply not a major stain remover that I have not tried.) The only thing close is a long pre-soak (I mean like six hours) in Oxyclean. With Puracy, you get the best result by doing it well in advance, but for me that is another plus because I would far rather spray them when I put them in the hamper than do it all at once just before I do the laundry. It seems to get everything out and I've never had any trouble with damaged fabric. I don't really review very much, but this is seriously outstanding." —NYC Buyer

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99.

    22. Maybelline's Instant Age Rewind concealer, a popular lightweight multi-use concealer for anyone who wants to quickly touch up before Zoom calls or walks around the neighborhood, but doesn't want to commit to a whole layer of foundation. This also helps reduce puffiness and cover dark circles without caking.

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I can develop dark circles under my eyes from seasonal allergies, and really, no one wants dark circles under their eyes. They make us look more tired than we are and older than our years. I've tried just about every concealer out there, and, surprisingly, this is the best. I say 'surprisingly' because I am one of those persons who tends to dismiss any makeup that costs less than $100 a pop. (I'm a big believer in 'you get what you pay for.') My beliefs aside, this product helps a lot. I've found it to be very moisturizing and it's caused me no irritation at all. It's very easy to apply, and I love the fact that the sponge applicator is antimicrobial. I don't like to worry about germs, but I also don't like to be constantly disinfecting. Sometimes it's necessary, but it's a step I'd rather skip when I can. This concealer lasts all day, at least for me. It certainly makes my under eye area look much brighter. I apply it before my tinted moisturizer and kind of blend the two together where they meet, without really covering the concealer. That would be defeating the purpose. While this conceals dark areas, it doesn't give you that silly white look under the eyes that some concealers can give. Since the skin under our eyes is usually much more delicate than it is on other areas of our face, a lot of under eye concealers can cake. I hate that. I've worn this concealer for sixteen hours at a time, in the dry, recycled air of a jet plane, and it has never caked, and I have dry skin. Very dry skin." —Colorata Kiki

    23. 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.

    Reviewer image of contoured black sleep mask

    Promising review: "The BEST BEST BEST and most comfortable sleep mask I’ve found. Night shifter for years, and have tried everything. Many other sleep masks have some qualities but not all. Some are high quality material but let light in, others are comfortable but material frays or cones apart after a few months, some are good for blackout but have a hard metal adjustment clasps on the band hurts when you sleep on it. This one has an adjustable coast on the band but I don’t feel it when I’m sleeping like others. This one is AMAZINGLY SOFT, VERY THICK, plush, high quality material, quality stitching that won’t come apart like so many others that are cheaply made, and it’s EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE even though it’s a good price. Very impressed and pleasantly surprised." —V

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in four colors).

    24. A set of heavy duty wipes that are most definitely not here to play — they're basically the paper towel version of The Rock, and can lift up stains on anything from grease to permanent marker to nail polish. Bonus: they're tough on stains, but the aloe vera in them makes them super gentle on skin!

    Promising review: "I am hooked by this product! To say it is amazing is not a right word! It the best of everything that I ever used in my life! It cleaned the markers and crayons very well! And it has a nice smell. I used it on stainless steel appliances and it worked amazingly. I used on the plastic and again fabulous! I even tried this to clean the oil on the stove and on the floors and wow!!! Also thanks to my kids I have a lot of different options to try this product now! I used to clean the crayons and markers on the wood and I take off my hat! Less then a minute to clean! Oh boy it also cleaned the raspberry from my carpet!!!! Wow!" —Milana Pary

    25. An internet-beloved pet urine stain-removing spray that instantly tackles both old and new stains *plus* the yucky smell, so you can enjoy the new quality time you might be getting with your pet without sacrificing your carpet and/or your nostrils.

    A person spraying the bottle on a carpet

    Promising review: "I don’t know how I ever survived without this. There’s tons of 'pet stain/odor remover' products out there, but this by far is the absolute best. I cringed paying the $20 for it when others are between $5-$10, but I have NO ISSUES paying now. I foster dogs, some puppies, some older, some not house broken and every room in my house is carpeted except the kitchen which means I have lots of accidents. I spray enough to saturate if it’s a lot of urine, let it soak for 10 minutes then wipe it up with a hand towel. Then I put a larger towel on top of it if it’s in a high traffic area until it’s completely dry. It’s taken out every stain and more importantly the odor is gone! I will never stop buying this product. I recommend it to everyone who has dogs!" —Shelley

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    26. A satin-lined cap with a lightweight jersey cover to help preserve your curls or braids *without* any added frizz at night, and keep your hair out of your face. It's designed to be nonslip but not too tight, either, so you'll barely notice it's there.

    Promising review: "This is the best sleeping cap I have ever had! It can slip off time to time. but for the most part just perfect! I love the size because i can use it for any hair style over night. Even box braids!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in 42 different designs).

    27. Glossier's Boy Brow, a combo eyebrow gel and pomade perfect for anyone who hasn't been able to get their brows done in a hot second. You can swipe a few times through each brow for instant subtle, natural definition — the brush picks up just enough of the product in the tube each time that it's basically impossible to mess up.


    Promising review: "Natural and easy! I use Boy Brow everyday that I wear makeup, and I love that natural but refined and full look this gives my brows and sometimes my eyelashes. I got rid of all other brow products immediately and I'm never going back! While the Boy Brow is perhaps not the most inexpensive brow product on the market it is by far the best, and unlike other tinted brow gels out there it doesn't leave your brows with a crusty finish but rather a breathable and flexible finish that manages to keep your brow hairs glued in place. It has become my holy grail eyebrow product and I can't wait to try more of Glossier's products!! :)" —Emma

    28. A bunch of Miracle-Gro "food spikes" that will make your houseplants the lushest greens on the whole block. Not only can they bring plants knocking at death's door back to life, but they'll continuously feed them for 30 to 60 days.

    Promising review: I am not a gardener and don't have a lot of luck with plants. That said, these spikes are amazing. You can see the difference in weeks. This is the best indoor plant product I have ever used, mainly because it is so darn easy. I definitely recommend these plant spikes." —V. Kline

    29. A sunrise simulation clock to trick your human brain into thinking you're already dappled in the light of a bright, sunshiny day when you wake up, even if you're up before the sunrise or nowhere near a window.

    A sunrise alarm clock in three stages of lighting up from dim to brighter to brightest over the course of a half hour

    You can sync this alarm clock with an app on your phone (or with an Alexa or Google Home), and it will gradually brighten the room with red-tinted light designed to fight grogginess in the minutes leading up to your wakeup. By the time your alarm goes off, your eyes will have already adjusted to the "daylight," so you won't be as tempted to hit snooze. It also has customizable sounds to wake you up, like "Hawaiian waves."

    Promising review: "Best wakeup light I've tried! It is pretty easy to set up and you can connect it to your Alexa app and control it from your phone! It has a LOT of different alarm sounds to choose from (and even had radio options) and the light from this thing is bright enough to light up your entire room! So much more powerful than previous 'wake up lights' I’ve purchased. I also like the different choices of sounds (I personally like the wind chimes one because it’s not too startling) and you can even dim (or turn off) the clock settings to your liking. This product gradually increases in light and sound intensity as it approaches the alarm set time, which allows for a more gradual morning wake up. I especially like being able to 'snooze' it or turn off the alarm from my phone without having to get up physically. All around, a great product at an even better price!" —alw214

    30. A firming eye cream that uses vitamin C, vitamin E, rosehip seed oil, and hibiscus flower extract to brighten and firm that sensitive skin around your eyes so you don't have to Google "how to not look tired" on the days you slept for like, eight seconds the night before.,

    Promising review: "I have had eye creams of unimaginable numbers and brands. This is the best and had beaten them all! How did I missed it on those years of conquering my puffy eyes? I can say this eye cream is huge in features! It has dramatically decrease the tire-looks of on my eyes! The amount in the jar can go a long long way compared to the store brands in the market which comes in small tubes only. What triggered me to try it is the natural ingredients it is made of. This should be re-branded as EYE KEEPER." —Blue

    31. A cropped workout tank with a padded built-in bra so versatile you'll want to pair it with high-waisted jeans just as often as you pair it with yoga pants.,

    TBH, this crossed my radar because of Stephanie Buttermore, a popular YouTuber who shares Stories of her gym routines on Instagram — but I've had a few friends who do yoga, lifting, and lower impact activities swear by these both for workouts and for just chilling in.

    Promising review: "Hands down best crop ever! I usually buy Lululemon and this is beats anything I’ve bought there. Quality is amazing. Best feature is YOU DON'T HAVE TO WEAR A BRA! Comes with it built in. I will be buying it in every color. For reference. I’m a 32D bra size 8 in Lululemon sports bras. I bought a large and it’s perfect!" —Christinaaaaa10

    32. 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.

    Promising review: "This is by far the best floor grout cleaner I have found. The design incorporates a thin nozzle to apply within grout lines rather than a spray that gets all over surrounding tiles. Just rinse with clear water and job done. Does not leave residue like other products. Quick and easy!" —Rita Hayworth

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95.

    33. A makeup brush-cleaning shampoo for brushes, applicators, and makeup sponges that will get them all squeaky clean *without* leaving any oily residue.

    Plus, this environmentally-friendly brand comes in tree-free packaging made of cotton and bamboo!

    Promising review: "Best, most affordable brush and sponge shampoo on the market! No joke, I have tried everything; even homemade hacks like dish detergent mixed with olive oil. Nothing works like this brush shampoo. Don't waste your money on the Beauty Blender soap and other big-name brands." —Lily

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    34. A ridiculously popular (like, over 50,000 positive reviews) Lodge pre-seasoned cast-iron skillet you can use to sauté, sear, bake, broil, braise, fry, *or* grill. It's also built to last for decades, whether you're using it on the reg in the oven to make pillowy biscuits or on the stove to make the kind of steak that'll waft through your whole house.

    Promising review: "Best pan I've ever had. I can’t believe I just found this gem! I have been using nonstick pans for years and decided to try something with less chemical on it. This Lodge cast-iron skillet looks like it will last for centuries! It can easily go from stove to oven, even to my outdoor grill. The seasoning part seemed daunting at first, but once a nice protective layer is built up, cleaning just means an easy rinse with water and drying with heat." —Fan G

    35. A conditioning and healing castor oil full of vitamins and fatty-acids that won't just strengthen weak hair, but will help you maintain hair health over time. Reviewers mention seeing improvements in growth and strength within a week, with noticeable results within a few months.

    FWIW, it also helps condition and strengthen eyelashes, eyebrows, and skin, so it really just shows up for you no matter what the task.

    Promising review: "I’ve tried different hair products and supplements and I have to say this is by far the best for hair growth and replenishment. It made my hair grow thicker and fuller as well as bring my hairline forward. I’m impressed that such a simple product works so well. I ended up buying a second bottle." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $17.95.

    36. A time-marked water bottle with a latch lid that protects the spout so you don't have to touch it — especially handy for anyone worried about disinfecting things as they're out and about in the socially distanced world.,

    This bb also comes with a no-leak lid and the ability to infuse your water with fruit to jazz things up, if that's your speed.

    Promising review: "Hands down, best water bottle. Not too heavy and easy to carry. I can’t believe the time markers haven’t faded on the Cactaki. I had another bottle with time markers that faded in just a few months. Definitely helps keep you on track. It is easy to add fruit and ice. The strainer on top keeps the fruit from blocking the flow of water. The large mouth of the bottle makes it easy to clean and add any size fruit or ice to eat. I am getting ready to order another one just to keep on hand and I rarely order anything twice. I just love this water bottle and it so much better than bottles that I have paid more money for." —Elaine

    Get it from Amazon for $18.95 (available in two colors).

    37. A pair of tried-and-true straight leg jeans with a relaxed fit so timeless it'll never go out of style (even if that small mountain of tie-dye T-shirts we all bought over the summer do 😬).

    Promising review: "I usually hate ordering clothes on line since I can't be sure of the fit, or the feel of the material. But I didn't have time to shop and I needed new jeans for a trip, so I took a chance on these after reading the reviews. Boy, was I glad that I did! I got the black (but I am going back to order more in more colors), and the minute that I put them on, they felt like my favorite comfortable old jeans but looked stylish and new. The fit is perfect, and the fabric is nice to the touch. Best pair of new jeans that I have ever bought." —D. Williams

    Get it from Amazon for $23.66+ (available in women's sizes 16-30 in petite and long sizes, and in 16 colors).

    38. A pair of wireless sleep headphones to play white noise or the music of your choice in a comfy headband, so your ears don't have to take the brunt of ear plugs or regular headphones while you snooze. Bonus: you can use these as hybrid earmuffs/headphones in the winter!

    Promising review: "Oh my goodness! Where has this been all my life?? Just a couple of days ago I was trying to sleep with earbuds in. I would wake up every time I moved because they were hard and hurt my ears. But THESE wireless headphones are the best! I can turn over in bed freely and it doesn't wake me up. I have trouble getting to sleep and staying asleep. Now I can play sleep videos which help drone me to sleep and keep me asleep. The only drawback is that while I love the material it can be a little warm in the middle of the night. I LOVE THEM!!" —Godsinger

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    39. 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!

    Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

    An embarrassing confession: I do not have a pet, but I shed like nobody's business. My hair gets so ingrained in the carpet that a vacuum truly does nothing for it, so I often was just unrooting clumps of hair from the floor with my hands (sorry for the visual). I bought this broom and it immediately started pulling it up GOBS of hair. My carpet like, genuinely changed color (turns out the pink was supposed to be much pinker, whoops). Anyway, do with that semi-horrifying information what you will — you can read my full review of the pet hair broom for more deets.

    Promising review: "This thing is seriously the BEST broom ever! We recently took out the carpet in our living room and put laminate in, which is lovely but good lord there are dust bunnies and it doesn't help that we have a ton of animals so the hair is just flying around left and right. Not only does this work well on the hard floors, but I used it in our bedroom which still has carpet in it. I had vacuumed a few days before, but I figured why not try it! Well, holy crap! This thing picked up even more hair that was embedded in the carpet! Works super well on those difficult rugs that are a pain to vacuum as well. But the main reason I bought it was because I hated how the normal broom would just push hair around on the laminate and not where I wanted it to go, whereas this rubber one more so holds on to it and doesn't flick it into the air. Buy it!" —MSH

    40. 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.

    Promising review: "This is the best oven cleaner I've ever used! You simply spray, wait a few hours and wipe away. So, when you're cleaning the house, spray first thing, put a timer on and come back later. It's that easy to use and it smells great!" —Mark Peralta

    Get it from Amazon for $11.65.

    41. 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.

    Promising review: "This is by far the best cleaner for the disposal. It not only foams away grime from disposal, but also the drain in the next-door sink. I have tried other cleaners, which do little or nothing, and when I couldn't find Glisten at the big box store where I originally purchased it, I even tried the old standby of baking soda and vinegar. While that was better than using those little citrus smelling beads, I was really happy to find this product on Amazon. I now have several months' supply and will not be without again." —Anne B. Ward

    42. A vitamin C-based face serum for brighter, firmer skin, which some of us might be in the market for now that we're spending a little less time outdoors and a little *more* time circling Netflix's drain in the dry air of our bedrooms.

    Reviewer image of day one face and their face after two weeks, with more of an even tone and refresh

    Promising review: "Best Vit C serum I've used. Including the dermatologist office and department store brands. Takes very little product to cover face, neck, chest. After second bottle, twice daily use, my jawline tightened and smile lines plumped. My skin feels and looks softer. Foundation smoother. Their customer service is top notch. I've never had a single problem. Good product. The price is incredible! I hope everyone else has the same experience. (And...I have age 50+ skin complete with effects of sun bathing before we knew it was deadly.)" —Love My Lab

    43. A handy as heck sunburn soother made with aloe and coconut oil to hydrate skin and gently relieve pain from the sun's unforgiving rays within just a few hours.

    Psst — a lot of reviewers mentioned this also helped prevent peeling and itching!

    Promising review: "I suffered from a severe burn that was raw and blistered and tried everything I could to relieve the pain. Out of all the products, this was the best! The product is like a runny lotion which was perfect for me. This allowed for an easy application with little pain. The cooling sensation was instant and it gave me some mobility back in my shoulders and back. Before I was so stiff from my burn I had limited movement. After my husband applied the lotion, my movement was still limited but there was improvement and much less pain involved. I have highly sensitive skin and this stuff caused no irritation at all. I do recommend this product and will be sure to always have it on hand during the summer months." —Chelsea

    44. A set of hypoallergenic brushed microfiber sheets so popular they've amassed over 100,000 positive reviews. They're also wrinkle- and fade-resistant, designed to be easy to put on your mattress, and are such high quality that many reviewers compare them to sheets they've bought in the past for $100 or more.

    Promising review: "I've been using these sheets for a few weeks now and I can absolutely say that they are my favorite sheets ever. I don't know what unicorn this fabric was harvested from, but it's so incredibly soft. It's 90 here and I'm not finding them too warm at night. I've washed them and thrown them in the dryer and so far so good on not showing any signs of wear. The other thing I like is that they're pretty deep, so they actually fit well on our memory foam mattress. I can't believe the price; I really didn't know what I was expecting for that price point but I'm am so shockingly pleased. I'm ordering a second set for my bed and replacing both my sons beds with these sheets." —Heather B.

    Get it from Amazon for $35.97+ (available in 12 sizes and 43 colors).

    45. CeraVe Moisturizing Cream to help soothe dry, cracked, or otherwise irritated skin, which may be making more regular appearances now that winter is showing up to the party uninvited yet again.

    Promising review: "I have extremely dry skin that's also acne prone and sensitive. That's a tough combination to treat because most products that heavily moisturizer also cause acne. This lotion is by far the best I've used! I can slather it on as much as I want without any irritation or acne and it soaks right in and soothes my dry skin. I'm a lifetime customer for sure." —Laura K.

    Get it from Amazon for $16.08.

    46. A set of reusable, streak-free microfiber cloths to tackle windows and other glass surfaces with. (Bonus — these can also clean glass surfaces with *just* water.)

    Promising review: "These are the absolute best microfiber cloths I've ever purchased — and such a nice selection for the money, and quick delivery. These cloths are incredibly soft and easy to rinse clean. I've used them for doing dishes, cleaning the tub, wiping our dogs down after they come inside, cleaning my computer and TV. I find myself looking for reasons to use them. When they get dirty, I just swish them through some sudsy water, rinse out and hang out to dry. And windows! Just dampen one with a little water and your windows and mirrors get squeaky clean with no streaks. So far, no bad smells or other complaints. I'm even thinking of getting another set to share with friends." —Mrs. W.

    Get an eight-pack from Amazon for $15.99 (available in seven different color combos).

    47. A foaming bubble bath with Epsom salts to help relieve aching muscles and chamomile essential oils to help relax your (justifiably) tired brain.

    Reviewer image of foamy bath tub

    Promising review: "Simply put, this foaming bath wash is among the best I have ever experienced! The scent is absolutely divine! The exhilarating scent is very strong, yet it is not overbearing at all! The quality is superb — this stuff is thick and a little goes a very long way! It lasts forever! And of course, the value is phenomenal! This is far better than any other foaming bath wash in this price range and honestly, I find it compares to the far more expensive (3x-4x the price) higher end luxury (overpriced) brands. I have used Dr. Teal's Bath Products for years, and they are always consistently amazing!" —Aaron J. Gedes

    Get it from Amazon for $11.65 (available in four scents).
