    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 vitamin E body oil for nourishment wherever you need.

    Promising Review: "As the reviews have stated, this smells lovely, like sweet almond. The natural smell dissipates quickly so it won't interfere with fragrance. I use this everywhere! My face, body, and hair love it! I have extremely dry skin and curly, dry hair. I add this oil to a body butter I make. Use it straight from the bottle on my face, neck, and décolletage." –Lady Xanth

    Price: $5.37

    2. A heavy duty multi-use kitchen chopper that's a cut above the rest.

    Promising Review: "I received it today and used it on onions, cheese, and even potatoes. I love this chopper." –Amazon Customer

    Price: $19.99

    3. A mug for anyone who might be, maybe, a little ~addicted~ to coffee (me).

    Promising Review: "GREAT GAG!!! Many people giggled at this wonderful cup. If you have a coffee lover in your life, who you feel is a bit too addicted to coffee , this would be the perfect gag gift for him or her. Every time they reach for a 'cup of' –they will think about you." –L. J. Oja

    Price: $7.99

    4. A backpack with a laptop compartment that's perfect for back to school.

    Promising Review: "I received mine yesterday and immediately transferred my laptop, headphones, etc. to this lightweight backpack. The size is not bulky at all, and it has room for a few notebooks as well. The front pocket holds my cell phone, keys & wallet with plenty of room to spare. I have not used the side pockets yet, but there is a pocket on each side for water bottles, I presume." –Amazon Customer

    Price: $20.99+

    5. A collection of seven plays by the late Sam Shepard.

    Promising Review: "The best collection of Shepard plays in one book. It includes his family plays, Buried Child, Curse, and True West which are easily three of his best plays. Shepard is one of the finest playwrights of the 20th century. Curse of the Starving Class is my personal favorite. I would put the final several pages of that play up against anything else written in terms of pure prose." –Amazon Customer

    Price: $12.92

    6. A mini lens kit that's compatible with your smart phone for a ~serious~ selfie upgrade.

    Kit Includes:

    1x Fish Eye Lens

    1x Wide Angle Lens

    1x Macro Lens

    1x 8X Telephoto Lens

    1x Selfie Stick Monopod

    1x Bluetooth Remote Control

    1x Mini Tripod

    1x Phone Holder

    3x Lens Cover (Plastic)

    1x Clip for Phone Lens Set

    1x Clip for Telephoto Lens

    1x Small Pouch

    1x Cleaning Cloth

    Promising Review: "Very nice collection at a good price. Particularly appreciated the tripod for taking timed photos with the iPhone. Some pieces need a little tightening using a screwdriver." – Isaac S. Kohane

    Price: $16.99

    7. A tear-free shampoo/conditioner guaranteed to cur~tail~ your pet's sensitive skin issues.

    Promising Review: "My dog was experiencing itching, and we still don't know the exact cause. However this shampoo did seem to calm him down and he instantly had a beautiful sheen and soft fur. It smells good and now his black fur is just so pretty! I mean, handsome! Unlike many dog shampoos, my hands didn't smell bad after washing him. And this is a big bottle. It will last a long time. I'd recommend it." –K Zander

    Price: $11.85

    8. A super soft Pajama set that proves little kids get the coolest clothes.

    Ages 6 months–4 yrs. Available in six colors/styles.

    Promising Review: "These are the softest, cutest PJs! They're well made and comfy." –Karen S

    Price: $13.99+

    9. A pair of unisex polarized sunglasses to protect your eyes and look cool doing it.

    Promising Review: "Seriously awesome quality. Comes with hard case, wipes, and more. Color on point! I have a slightly lager heart-shaped face so they fit perf." –Kristeen

    Price: $17.99

    10. A bottle of pure tea tree oil that will ~salve~ your skin problems, and you can use it as a natural cleaner.

    "I love this stuff, and this is the real deal. I use this mixed with water in a spray bottle as an all-purpose kitchen and bathroom cleaner and sanitizer. I also use a small amount mixed with Bragg's ACV as an excellent and gentle facial toner. I put a few drops in my shampoo bottle as well, to keep psoriasis of the scalp at bay (mine was really bad before I began using this regimen). I also use a few drops in my homemade deodorant mixed with baking soda, cornstarch, and some coconut oil. The tea tree oil kills the sweat causing bacteria under my arms so there is no foul odor. Tea tree oil is a god send. One of the best and most potent essential oils period. USE SPARINGLY! A little goes a long way." –F. F.

    Price: $12.95

    11. A set of six glass roll-on bottles to roll-on the tea tree and other essential oils.

    Promising Review: "These came very well packaged. Each item is separated inside the box, which helps insure no breakage or damage. I like the metal ball, so I can use it with essential oils. These are the perfect size for sliding into your pocket, or to carry in a small purse pocket. Update: I have used a couple of these for several months & they are holding up well – no peeling or fading, no leaking, cap still fits well so no aroma escapes, etc. I will purchase these again. I love items that stand the test of time." –Susan B.

    Price: $6.99

    12. A codemaker vs. codebreaker game that would have made Alan Turing swoon.

    Promising Review: "Mastermind is a code breaking game. It's quick and easy to learn but can be difficult to win. I had this game as a kid and bought it for my kids. We have had it over a year now and they still play it, unlike many other games I have purchased." –Mom of 3 boys... and a dog :)

    Price: $14.98

    13. A 16 pack of freeze-dried fruits so you can add some health to your diet with minimal effort.

    Promising Review: "Well I saw the reviews for Crispy Green and ordered the Tangerine. I love love love them. I put in the blender with stevia, coconut cream, mango juice, a couple spoons of all fruit and Emergen-C vitamin pack. Poured into popsicle containers and into the freezer. They were amazing and healthy. Also made one of my favorite Japanese dishes and used the fruit in my miso garlic sauce. There are a lot of ways to use dried ingredients. It was a win for me. Will try the apple next in my gluten-free apple fritters. Terrific discovery." –Anuschka Light

    Price: $16.20+

    14. A cowl neck tunic top that's a perfect pair with leggings or jeans.

    Promising Review: "I have this in black and blue and love them both. I bought the medium and it fits great – snug in the hips but not tight in the waist – looks like it does on the model. It's very soft and comfy yet covers my rear which is great because I wear with leggings. Pockets are a nice feature. I get compliments every time I wear these." –Linda

    Price: $19.99

    15. 20g of temperature-activated pigment to color change your craft game.

    Promising Review: "Great product! It does actually change colors at the temperature that is stated. If you want something that will change colors with just a touch this is it." –Amazon Customer

    Price: $16.99

    16. A charcoal-based teeth whitening powder that looks terrifying in use but is totally worth it.

    Promising Review: "Really weird, really messy, really powdery and it REALLY works. This tooth powder is amazing and, yes, you will see a difference after the first use. The smooth, clean feeling of your teeth and mouth is much the same as when you've had a cleaning at the dentist's office. Very highly recommend." –Someplace Else

    Price: $21.97

    17. A classic Calvin Klein bralette to keep you comfortable.

    Promising Review: "I am a petite person and so I ordered a small which fits me, even though my chest is around a size D. The fit has more to do with your size as a person rather than strictly the chest size, probably because it isn't a bra. It's closer to a sports bra without compression. I absolutely LOVE the product, it is so comfortable and so good looking! So happy I got it!" –Sarah Phillips

    Price: $13.04+

    18. A garment steamer that will have you saying: "Goodbye, iron. Farewell, wrinkles."

    Promising Review: "Simple, inexpensive, and works well. My shirts frequently go to the cleaners just because they're somewhat wrinkled, not necessarily dirty. This took the wrinkles right out of four shirts with no problem. It will pay for itself probably in about 2-3 months." –Jeff T.

    Price: $19.99

    19. And a 48-count box of Ferrero Rocher chocolates that will make a great ~gift~ for anyone, including you.

    Promising Review: "What's not to LOVE about this confection? I put this out in the office and the vultures devoured it in two days...and we only have a staff of nine. That said, my only quibble is that the box is so very intense, the jeweled plastic cover seems a bit to fancy for what it needs to do. That said, my colleague just looked at me and said, 'Shut up and enjoy it.'" –CinemaDude

    Price: $12.98
