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 Wi-Fi action camera with tons of accessories worthy of your next wild adventure.

amazon.com

Kit includes one ODRVM underwater camera, two batteries (1050mAh), one waterproof case, bicycle stand, base, clip, fixed base, switch support, helmet base, bandage, ribbon, 3M Adhesive Tape, wire rope, data wire, manual, and wiper. Kit does not include micro SD card.

Promising review: "I have owned a GoPro in the past and was skeptical of what I would get. Well the first GoPro got lost somehow and I was left with a ton of accessories. I looked at prices for a new one and got sticker shock. Are you kidding me, the price for a simple GoPro camera is just ridiculous. I figured I would take a reasonable risk based upon the reviews and bought this kit. After playing with it for a few evenings, I realized that 'this dog hunts'. Holy cow, it worked like a champ. I immediately dove in the pool and gave it the dunk test, not even a remote issue. Bonus, all my orphaned accessories from the GoPro worked with this, as well. There are so many mounts that come with this camera, I can't imagine using all of them. When I went white water rafting with the family, that was truly the acid test. Found the right clip mechanism, and attached it right onto my helmet. With the two batteries included, I was able to take pictures and videos of our entire adventure. Not that GoPro makes a bad product, it was perfectly fine. The performance of this camera was on par with what I had, so why spend the money? I am not into buying names, I want something my family and I can enjoy." –Larry F.

Price: $45.99

2. A collection of seven hot sauces for anyone who goes through hot sauce like it's ketchup (me).

Collection includes seven different hot sauce flavors, ranging from mild to blazing hot.Promising review: "Got this as a Father's Day gift for my dad. The box it comes in conceals what it is, but gives a hint to create curiosity. The presentation of this product is so creative and cool, my dad loved it and popped it open right away. The flavors matched the hard work and love that went into wrapping it. My dad can't wait to try the rest of the flavors." –StephaniePrice: $34.99

3. A duvet cover set so you can shield your comforter from messes and make your bed even cozier.

amazon.com

Say it with me: "Protect. The duvet."

Set includes duvet cover and two pillow shams (comforter sold separately).

Promising review: "I bought this duvet cover for the guest room, and was hesitant because it is super difficult to find good quality under $50. But once I received it, I fell in love! This duvet cover is AMAZING. Super soft, and good quality." –Amazon Customer

Price: $18.99+ Sizes: two Colors: three

4. An extra-large cat litter mat that'll protect your carpet from litter trying to escape its natural habitat.

Promising review: "I love my cat, but not the litter gravel that ends up everywhere. This litter mat works great! It is good quality, easy to clean, and traps nearly all of the gravel. Also, as a cat lover, I appreciate that proceeds from the purchase of this item has gone to The Blind Cat Rescue and Sanctuary." –Tina YoungPrice: $19.99 Colors: five

5. A makeup brush you just may exclaim "oh wow!" over once you give it a whirl.

amazon.com

Promising review: "The name WOW fits it to a T. Yes it is WOW. So soft and so easy to use. I bought two – one for foundation and one for moisturizer. No streaking, you use less product, make up looks flawless. The narrow rounded tip makes it easy to apply product around and under your eyes. I had never tried a makeup brush before, but now I don't know how I would get by without my WOW make up brush!" –pinkporcine

Price: $15.07

6. A portable charging bank with a dual USB port – so none of your devices go dead again.

Compatible with Apple, Android, and more. Promising review: "I have now used this battery back for about three months. I used it twice in Tanzania on trips of varying lengths. I frequently take it with me in the car when I know my phone is going to need an extra shot of juice. I can easily get about five to six full phone charges from it. I can also charge my DSLR camera battery with it, but it probably only has enough life to charge the camera battery once or twice at most. Overall, it is an absolutely wonderful battery charger that I highly recommend. It is a little heavy, but that's the tradeoff you make when you choose to get more capacity." –byuchadPrice: $13.99+ Colors: two

7. A self-tanner to achieve the glow of a sun-kissed angel in no time.

amazon.com

Promising review: "As of now, this Fake Bake Flawless is my favorite self-tan product I've ever used. I'd argue that, when used properly, this is the best sunless tanner. The color guard in combination with the mitt makes sure I get every single square inch of my body, no streaks. It dried in minutes, and I was able to dress quickly. The liquid develops into a wonderful brown (not orange!) color, and it was even and believable." –Glynis

Price: $12.95

8. A big ol' bottle of peppermint Castile soap powerful enough for cleaning dishes and counters, and gentle enough for using during bath time (when diluted!).

Promising review: "I use this soap for shampoo, body wash, face wash, I put it in my bath, I've used it to clean my counters, I've used it to clean dishes. The peppermint is my favorite, especially for soaking in the bath because it tingles and it's the best scent in my opinion, also for shampoo, again because it tingles. To clean, I put a little on a damp terry cleaning cloth or kitchen towel and just wipe. I use it on kitchen and bathroom counters, and I dissolve it in water to mop with. I prefer to use the tea tree for cleaning.As a shampoo, I am puzzled by all the claims I had heard online about Castile soap/saponified oil being drying to the hair. This is an extremely gentle product. I have CURLY hair, and it is dyed. Curly hair is generally drier, and harder to keep conditioned than straight hair, and mine is no exception. My hair is super fine and super dry, and prone to breakage. I find using this soap as shampoo is actually much LESS drying to my hair than other types of shampoo. Use less than what you would use if you were using a normal shampoo. You are not going to get as rich of a lather with this soap. That doesn't mean it doesn't clean as well, and it doesn't mean you didn't use enough soap." –wartPrice: $15.99

9. A handy little frozen fruit dessert maker that'll give you the ice cream of your dreams, without all the dairy and sugar.

amazon.com

Comes with a recipe book, delish!

Promising Review: "This is the BEST 'nice cream' maker on the planet. It is very easy to operate, uses the least amount of fruit for the largest amount of product, and disassembly and cleanup are a breeze. The shape of the grinder is an 'ice cream' cone, therefore making clean-up fun and tasty! Follow instructions regarding fruit frozen and thawing for 5 min – very important. It works perfectly if you are gentle, and the noise level is way less than other brands, this is a biggie in my book." –Cat

Price: $49.99

10. A coloring and activity book your loved one with Alzheimer's just may enjoy.

The book includes activities for caregivers, as well. Promising review: "This beautiful book inspires while it educates and engages. The art is inviting, and the accompanying ideas offer readers a chance to nurture, celebrate, reflect, reach out, connect, and create. I like the personal touch, with Maria’s tips encouraging readers to try new things, take good care of themselves, explore the arts, and color in their blessings. A bonus — part of the proceeds go to the Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement." –D. ShousePrice: $9.08

11. And a set of 72 colored pencils so nothing stands in the way of the beautiful art you can create.

Promising review: "These pencils are soft, creamy, and blend beautifully. I just received them, and have colored for several hours with them. I haven't had any lead break, and they hold their shape very well as I color. I have much more expensive colored pencils in my art supply that do not even come close to the quality of this product. The tin was slightly dented on top, but did not hurt the pencils inside. The quality of this set is superior. I am not an expert colored pencil artist; but I do use colored pencils regularly, and this set is now my go to set." –DottieMPrice: $21.99

12. A grow light for anyone who has plenty of plant babes, but not enough windows – those babes shall grow in no time.

amazon.com

Powered by 53" outlet plug.

Promising review: "This has made a huge difference for my plant! I started growing a clementine seed. Before I got this light, the seedling was growing along fine. Two leaves at a time. I put this grow light on 24/7 over the three-day weekend, and it grew four more leaf sprouts! I am not a gardener and I have no idea what those are actually called, but it's crazy. My plant has been growing like mad now. Looks stronger, too. It does get warm, but won't burn you when you move it around. The bulb really only covers enough space for one plant. I really like the on-off switch as well, so I don't need to unplug it to turn it off." –Ranae H.

Price: $14.99

13. A sturdy metal shelf to hold allll the stuff, because you deserve a de-cluttered life.

Promising review: "The unit is wonderful! It was extremely easy to assemble and there are no tools required; I assembled it on my own. The shelves are very sturdy. I needed extra space for overflow items from my pantry, and this works fabulously." –Cali Book WormPrice: $43.14+ Sizes: two Colors: two

Bonus – no milk needed, you can make this chocolate dream with just hot water.

Promising review: "Sorry, I'm not impartial enough to review this product because I love it too much, it makes good strong cuppa. I have repeatedly bought it and have never been disappointed." –Amazon Customer

Price: $6.88 (15-pack)

15. An adorable knitted mermaid blanket worthy of keeping your little one warm.

Kids get all the good stuff, amirite? Promising review: "Love this! So cute. When you first get it out of the package you think it's going to be tiny, but it will loosen up and be just fine. My niece loves it." –MildredPrice: $16.29 Size: Length 70.8''x35.5''

16. A pair of skinny jeans with just enough stretch for you to wear all day long without *distress*.

amazon.com

The style of these jeans are a lil' distressed, just fyi.

Promising review: "I'm a heavy-set guy, so I was skeptical on the fitting when I first purchased; but the first second I tried these on I knew i made the right choice. Very good quality and stretchy, which is great. I have different skinny jeans, but this is the best pair. I can actually walk up the stairs without feeling pressure on my legs." –Amazon Customer

17. A bouncy hopper horse to make sure your toddler has way more fun than anyone else in the house.

Seriously, when will they make these for adults?Promising review: "Love the bouncer horse! Perfect size for both my little ones; a 5-year-old and 1-year-old. I purchased two bouncer horses, and they're both wonderful. It also came with a hand pump. Definitely recommend it." –SGStarPrice: $17.40

18. An extreme doggo toy capable of withstanding your woofer's worst chewing.

amazon.com

Promising review: "This works perfect for the reason I purchased it. I needed something to keep my lab from consuming her Dentastix in less than three seconds. This is the perfect size to wedge her treat crosswise on the inside, and it takes her at least 15-20 minutes to get it out and polish it off. I have even smeared the inside with peanut butter, and it keeps her busy even longer." –The Clothing Dr.

Price: $6.57+ Sizes: two

19. A lightweight tunic for anyone who wants to look cute AF without the skin-tight feel.

amazon.com

Promising review: FINALLY!! I have had this shirt in my wish list FOREVER. It has a more loose fit, and isn't supposed to be a skin tight shirt. I am 5'4", 130 pounds and got a medium, which is little big, BUT exactly how I wanted it to fit. I could have gotten a small and still would have been happy. Highly recommend!" –JenGee

Price: $12.97 Sizes: S–XXL Colors: eight

20. And a paper time capsule that your favorite kid will want to fill out ASAP.

Promising review: "These are a cute idea. Used it to put into a time capsule my middle schooler did. She loved this, and the writing prompts were thoughtful, and made for much better letters." –mcwickiPrice: $14.93
