    Amazon has a list of products called "Movers and Shakers," which is pretty much just fancy talk for things that are currently ~trending~.

    Here are some of the coolest and most useful things found on the list this week:

    1. A travel nap pillow, because any time is bedtime if you believe in yourself.

    Promising review: "I am a person who has a hard time getting comfortable when sleeping on a plane and traditional U-shaped pillows did not give me the support or comfort I needed. Because I was going on a 13-hour flight to Europe, I researched pillows as I wanted to ward off jet lag. Once I double-wrapped the infinity design over my neck I was in comfort heaven! No matter the angle, my head was supported with the right amount of firmness. I love this pillow so much that when I realized that the pillow in my hotel room was inadequate I augmented it with the Infinity." —RacerX CDG

    Price: $35.99. Also available in navy.

    2. A pack of pimple patches that'll deflate a ~code red~ situation practically overnight.

    Read our full review here!

    Promising review: "I have repurchased these acne patches multiple times because they truly and genuinely work. There are a lot of different varieties of acne patches on the market, especially from Korean brands, but none of them come close to these. The Acne Pimple Master Patches are really in a league of their own. Not only are they made of very thick material, but they do what the others don't: heal your acne. When I wake up in the morning and remove the patches, you can see the risen white spot on the patch where it has 'sucked' the bacteria and oil out of the breakout. The pimple is normally flattened and much less red and noticeable after one patch, however there have been a few times where the pimple is almost completely gone after one use." —Harlot Beauty

    Price: $8.99 for a four-pack.

    3. A treat-dispensing dog toy so good boys can be smart boys, too.

    Promising review: "Wow. This is the best treat dispenser I've bought my dog. He absolutely loves it! It takes seconds to fill up with treats and my dog is busy for at least an hour. He actually gets quite the workout too because he's pushing this thing all around the house." —logicwand

    Price: $8.29+. Available in two sizes.

    4. A pair of suede lace-up boots with a fuzzy lining to stomp out any fear of braving snowy sidewalks.

    Promising review: "I love these boots. They are light, soft, warm, and don't slide on ice. The color (I bought gray) is beautiful. I am thinking about ordering more." —Irina M. Flowers

    Price: $12+ Sizes: 4–11. Available in five colors.

    5. An insulated travel mug, because you'll feel more motivated to interact with people after lots of caffeine.

    Promising review: "I've had this thermos for about a month now and I am very pleased with it. I put my hot beverage of choice inside the thermos by 5:40 a.m., and at around noon it is still nice and warm. I have repeated this exact ritual nearly every day and it will always be deliciously warm at noon time." —Diana G.

    Price: $11.68. Sizes: two Colors: 14

    6. A blunt pad you can politely leave on your coworker's desk when they "reply all" again.

    Promising review: "This is truly an office wake-up call for the slackers. Just kidding, but if you want to mess with your employees or coworkers then this is just the pad for you. Keep in mind it's for people with personalities. No need to end up in HR for real." —Mrs. B

    Price: $5.30. Available in 20 styles.

    7. A pair of thermal leggings so feeling extra cozy doesn't end as soon as you walk out the door.

    Promising review: "I love these! There stretchy, soft, warm, and fuzzy. They have a tight fit but are very comfortable. They're like wearing clouds. They even have this foot thing that keeps the leggings from sliding up when you put pants on." —KittyD

    Price: $10.99+. Available in eight colors.

    8. A set of leaf- and acorn-shaped cookie cutters for fancy desserts all your guests will fall for.

    Promising reviews: "They are charming and so easy to use. Your cookies will come out with sharp and clear patterns. They release quickly from the cutter." —Alice M. Grove

    Price: $9.02. Available in nine styles.

    9. A DVD of The Peanuts Movie, because you've probably watched everything on Netflix, and these guys will make you a whole lot happier that you spent all day on the couch.

    Promising review: "I have no idea how this film got totally overlooked at the Oscars because I thought that it was a true tribute to the legendary Charles Schultz who gave us these amazing characters. However, that is just me. Either way, I love this film and I am so glad I own it." —Underground Reborn

    Price: $7.50+

    10. A snuggly blanket that'll make you wonder if maybe sharks were just asking for a hug all this time.

    Promising review: "If you have a child that loves to snuggle in blankets then this is the 'blankie' for them. It has easy care instructions and the soft material makes it the perfect blanket to get cozy in." —Jacqueline B. Cooper

    Price: $19.87

    11. A knitted infinity scarf to call it a wrap on unfashionable bundling.

    Promising review: "This is my first infinity scarf and I wanted something that would be soft but thick because I get cold so easily. This scarf is SO amazing! It's incredibly comfortable, the stitching is strong but light, and not itchy at all." —Margaret Lewis

    Price: $8.99. Available in 42 colors.

    12. A hydrating primer so your hard work every morning comes out perfectly.

    Promising review: "Love this primer, it made a great difference on my makeup. It's easy to apply, leaves my skin smooth, and prepares it well for makeup. I often have problems with my pores when applying foundation, this primer makes my skin look flawless when I apply it. I also have oily skin which causes my makeup to be messed up after a few hours but with this primer my makeup always stays in place the entire night." —Ana

    Price: $4.99

    13. A set of peelers for a cooking session so efficient you'll find yourself auditioning for Chopped.

    Promising review: "I never knew vegetable peelers could actually work like this! When a recipe says something like 'use a vegetable peeler to peel carrot into strips,' I used to always groan at the miserable chore that'd take forever and leave my hands sore. Now it's fun and takes a few seconds!" —J. Green

    Price: $9.93 for a three-pack.

    14. A pair of bluetooth wireless headphones you can use at the gym or just to keep your hands free while eating.

    Promising review: "WOW! I am really impressed with the sound quality and comfort. Not only do they get me through my workout but they don't slip off or get tangled during my aggressive running routine! I have no issues connecting to bluetooth and it works perfectly with my phone across the room." —Wingitwithwen

    Price: $19.99

    15. A set of exfoliating loofahs so your skin feels like new — in a good way.

    Promising review: "Probably some of the best loofahs I've ever had. I always go for the cheap stuff — these weren't too expensive, but the quality is great and they lather so well. Very soft." —K. A. Heaton

    Price: $10.99 for a three-pack.

    16. A flowy dress (with POCKETS), because Thanksgiving is coming and you'll need extra room come your tenth helping. Now is not the time for pants.

    Promising review: "The dress is flattering and fits well. The quality is nice, both in material and detail. Pocket placement is comfortable and useful!" —Last Re-boot

    Price: $8.60+ SIzes: S–XL. Available in 44 colors.

    17. A phone mount to safely blast Beyoncé while driving — and yes sing along, witnesses be damned.

    Promising review: "This is the first car mount that we had that actually stuck; we live up north so negative temperatures are very normal and most suction cup car mounts lose grip and slip off the window. This one has not let loose even once! The mount is stable and easily usable by driver or passenger because of the built-in swivel." —J

    Price: $14.99

    18. A series of whimsical short stories by Tom Hanks you should feel free to read in his voice to imagine he's reading you some bedtime tales.

    Promising review: "I am pleasantly surprise by Tom Hanks' new book. Having enjoyed his movies I was not aware that Tom has a real talent as a writer! The stories contained in this book are incredible and thought provoking! These stories ventures deep into the readers' hearts and prompts deep introspection. However deep it is, the book also entertains and is a pleasure to read!" —Annie and Tony

    Price: $16.17+.

    19. A pair of faux-fur-lined slippers so you never start chilly mornings off on the wrong foot.

    Promising review: "Very comfortable. They stay on my feet when I’m relaxing and have my feet up. They are wonderfully warm and good looking. They have a nice hard sole to go outside in." —J. Murray-Daniels

    Price: $23.99. Sizes: 6–12. Available in three colors.

    20. A dramatic mascara for a chance to give people whiplash with all that volume.

    Promising review: "I've tried just about all drug store brand and style mascaras. I've even tried a few expensive ones from department stores. This mascara is hands down the best one I've EVER owned and I will never try another so long as they keep making this one! No clumps, makes them full with one application, and doesn't flake even in the 90 degree heat today after I sweated my butt off running around after my niece and nephew." —Oksana Peysakh

    Price: $8.97

    21. A pair of opaque control-top tights, because it's cold out and if you go outside bare legged your mom is going to yell at you.

    Promising review: "The color is really dark and opaque. The fabric is comfortable, silky, and feels like this pair will last for a while. The control top is not very tight; it's rather comfortable." —Nanda Dyssou

    Price: $5.87+ Sizes: S–XXL. Available in three colors.

    22. A DIY slime starter kit with glitter glue to prove you can adult and also play with sparkly goo.

    Promising review: "I paid extra for Elmer's glue instead of wholesale glue, and it was WORTH it. The slime this stuff makes is just so much different somehow, and the slime is soooo much stretchier and fun to play with, and it lasts much longer. Highly recommend for slimers." —Ivy C.

    Price: $13.99 (originally $16.16).

    23. A pair of Bearpaw snow boots that'll hug your feet so you don't have a ~meltdown~ in the cold.

    Promising review: "The fit is exquisitely comfortable and still leaves me room to wear socks comfortably if I'd like. Surprisingly, the boots have great snow/ice traction. Also, I never have temperature issues — the boots are almost never too warm." —Maya Gail Taylor

    Price: $30.99+ Sizes: 6–11. Available in 30 colors.
