There are so many products out there, and we just wanna know what actually works. We recently asked our BuzzFeed Community to tell us about their favorite purchases they made this month so that we could cut through the bull and get the deets on what's really worth our money.

1. These DUBS earplugs to quiet the noise.

amazon.com

"I bought Dubs Acoustic Filters. I am prone to migraines, and they have been particularly bad at work because of the noise. These little suckers help so much, and they still allow me to hear people talking to me. Seriously the best investment this month." —a455eb206d

Get them on Amazon for $19.95.

2. This correcting cream for an even complexion.

"Pond's Clarant B3! I picked up a travel size, and it has changed my skin entirely. I have combination skin and have suffered from acne and acne scars for over 10 years. This has evened my skin tone tremendously, and it works as an AMAZING base for moisturizer and makeup! It also dries matte, which I really like." —Mary Gross Gatesman, FacebookGet it on Walmart for $6.46.

3. This pet seat cover to keep your ride clean.

"I got this pet seat cover for the backseat of my car because the crappy fleece blanket I was using just wasn't cutting it. My dog (he's a border collie mix) sheds a LOT, and he's in my car daily. It has been the BEST investment I have made as a dog parent!" —fieldingbridgetGet it on Amazon for $17.99.

4. This bidet for a super clean feel after you go.

"We bought a bidet on Amazon and installed it ourselves in about an hour. I have NEVER felt so clean, not to mention the money we'll save on wet wipes will be a big help to our budget." —nathansgirl

Get it on Amazon for $68.94.

5. These hiking shoes to conquer the rugged terrain.

"Salomon Speedcross 4 Women's trail running shoes. I do 10-15 miles a week of strenuous hiking, and these are the bomb with serious arch support, deep ridges on the soles, and wicked control on rugged terrain. The beautiful color choices are a major plus, too!" —r4c93e7142Get them on Amazon for $74.32. More colors available.

6. This Dyson V8 vacuum that's powerful enough for a deep clean, but sleek enough to store and maneuver.

amazon.com

"We've got a larger vacuum that is really powerful, but also really clunky to move around the house. This Dyson V8 is great because it's small, lightweight, and powerful, but it's so much easier to maneuver under furniture and around corners. We've also got a small white cat that sheds like nothing else, so the Dyson helps keep our gray tiles and black carpets much cleaner." —kayjomor

Get it on Amazon for $529.94.

7. And this super vaccum that works for carpet, floors, and even walls.

"The Shark Navigator Lift-Away Deluxe is amazing and made me feel like our old vacuum did not suck up a single bit of dust." —Jeannine Bosse, FacebookGet it on Target for $199.

9. This hammock that lets you nap anywhere.

"I bought a sturdy camping hammock, and I fell in love with it the second that I opened the box. It's big and roomy, but even as a fat human, I feel completely safe in it despite the material feeling thinner. So many of my friends at college want one now, as it's so easy to carry around and put up for a short nap on the quad between classes." —airofparadiseGet it on Amazon for $14.55.

17. This battery operated bae for an orgasm on demand.

"Tummy Control High Waist Power Flex Legging by 90 Degree By Reflex. I just started core power yoga. Trying to fit in, I wanted a good pair of leggings but I refused to spend over $30.

19. This healthy meal delivery kit with fancy ingredients.

"Sunbasket is a healthy meal kit delivery. My BF and I started it this month after doing HelloFresh for a month and finding some sort of heavy starch or carb in every single meal. Sunbasket has paleo and gluten-free options, as well as vegetarian and vegan options. Instead of five or six meals to choose from, there are 12 or 13. They use more unique and upscale ingredients, like black garlic and preserved lemons. The layers of flavor they build are far superior to any other meal kit delivery I've tried. Three meals a week is $75, so it's a little more pricey but completely worthwhile." —allycostanzo8387Get it on Sunbasket for $9.99 - $11.49 per serving.

21. This microfiber mop for a squeaky clean floor.

"I recently bought the O-Cedar Wring Mop, and it is the business! At first I was a little hesitant because of the price, but I finally gave in and it's amazing. It comes with a bucket and microfiber mop that can be detached and washed. The bucket has a paddle and ring that allows you to wring out your mop. Now my kitchen floor is back to smelling great and staying clean longer than just an afternoon. Definitely recommend it." —nellyr3Get it on Amazon for $33.88.
