1. Finishing Touch Flawless Women's Painless Hair Remover makes waxing that 'stache seem barbaric, thanks to its gentle technology that can glide over lips, chins, and cheeks. Did I mention it's 18-karat gold? ~Fancy~.

Read our full review here.

Promising Review: "I can't say enough good things about this product. I have a family of four, and would frequently have to snake our shower drain. It appears I won't be having that problem ever again. I even give my dog baths, and this collects the hair. You don't know how much hair you wash down your drain until you use this!" —Aaron Morlock

Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in five colors).

3. Müeller Onion and Pro Vegetable Chopper dices hard food efficiently and easily with sharp stainless-steel discs to ~cut~ prep time in half. It also reduces onion vapor for a hopefully tear-free experience in the kitchen.

Müeller / Via

Comes with Müeller stainless-steel discs, a four-cup container, cleaning brush, and Mueller recipe e-book. FDA-certified, BPA-free, and dishwasher-safe.

Promising Review: "I have a disability that affects my ability to use my hands. Chopping food is exhausting and painful, so I stopped making a lot of my favorite foods or switched to pre-chopped versions. Until I found this.

This little baby has been a dream for making salads, salsas, and soups, and it's easy to clean with the little brush they include. I have gone from almost never chopping vegetables to chopping them almost every day." —Y. Demus

Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

by.RHO / Amazon / Via

Includes a 2-by-80-inch roll you can easily cut with scissors.

Promising Review: "This works so well on screen holes! The backing is very sticky, and stays in place well. I used it on a very small hole, and then also for a larger hole where I had to use two strips. They are both very secure. Glad we don't have to replace an entire screen just because of one hole!" —48nascargirl

Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

6. PackIt Freezable Lunch Bag replaces ice packs by keeping food cool all day. Pop it in the freezer overnight, and feel free to pack it with fruit or just a lot of cheese.

PackIt / YouTube / Via

Promising Review: "I pack four lunches every day for my family. As far as keeping food cold, I can attest that even after a day when I pack the lunch at 7 a.m., and they come home at 5:30 p.m. after school, water will still be cool." —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in 31 colors).

As Seen On TV / YouTube / Via

BPA-free, and dishwasher- and microwave-safe.

Promising Review: "I have been using the Bacon Wave for about three years now. It makes the best bacon ever. It comes out crispy, and without all the fat drippings you get when you fry bacon. I would recommend this product to anyone who loves bacon, and wants an easy way to prepare it." —Rosemary Orr

Get it from Amazon for $8.97.

Works only with other Magic Pens.

Promising Review: "These markers really do as they claim. It's quite neat and impressive. My daughter has had these for well over a month, and is spending hours making drawings, cards, and notes for the family. Even secret messages. You write with the white Magic Pen first, then color over it with a color pen, and the message appears." —Michele

Allstar Products Group / YouTube / Via

Promising Review: "My girlfriend and I think this is the best thing since sliced bread. All three of our cats like this glove much better than any brush. Even the most finicky of the three can be completely brushed using this glove. One of them likes it so much that he cries around for it, and purrs like a maniac while we use it on him. The hair even comes off the glove easier than the brush we were using. Great product." —Dan S. Winger

Get it from Amazon for $2.54.

11. Wonder Wallet holds up to 24 cards in a super slim and compact leather design as a cheap way to declutter your essentials.

Allstar Products Group / YouTube / Via

Includes two inserts for the wallet. It also has RFID blocking to stop remote scanning of cards and to protect private information.

Promising Review: "I absolutely love this wallet, It is so convenient to flip through the wallet to find the exact card that's needed. For added convenience, the openings for inserting and removing cards are located at the top of the pockets. This is a great improvement over my last wallet, where the openings were at the place where the wallet folded. There's a roomy compartment for cash, as well. And of course the RFID is much appreciated." —Dora L. McAlpin

Get it from Amazon for $8.99+.

These also hang over my oven and next to my sink, and are what I use to dry everything that I wash. They're my go-to towel. Unbelievably super absorbent, and they wash beautifully." —mdchick
