    Including a dog paw cleaner, wireless earbuds, and more inexpensive products reviewers are raving about.

    1. A bottle of wood polish to restore scratched-up cabinets, furniture, and hardwood floors back to their former glory. Thanks to conditioning oils and a beeswax protective coating, wooden surfaces will look less faded and more shiny again.

    2. A cult-favorite vitamin C serum that's like a facial in a bottle. It'll help minimize hyperpigmentation, brighten dull areas, and soften skin. More than 70,000+ people on Amazon gave it a 5-star rating for its jaw-dropping results.

    3. A pair of blue-light-blocking glasses for anyone who works in front of a computer all day long. These frames act as a shield against blue light from digital devices and you'll experience less eye fatigue while you type and read emails.

    4. Mighty Patches that'll help absorb all the yucky gunk in your pimples while you sleep. When you wake up, you'll feel really satisfied when you see one of these babies lift pus from your zit that's basically the size of Mars.

    Promising review: "I purchased these for my son who suffers from cystic acne. He is 15-years-old, and they has been a lifesaver. He puts them on the pimples at night and in the morning the pimples are dramatically reduced in size and his skin is 'flat' in his words. I highly recommend these to anyone who suffers from any type of acne. They were recommended by another mom on my son's basketball team. Her son was using them and I am so thankful that she shared how great the Might Patches are!" —Slade Salisbury

    5. A pack of plant food spikes because your green babies need the proper nutrients to thrive indoors and avoid wilting. This fertilizer can be used for all kinds of plants like house crotons, ferns, and spider plants, and takes the stress out of plant care.

    6. A L'Oreal Infallible foundation powder that'll be a staple in your beauty routine because it provides full coverage without clogging pores, leaves a matte finish, *and* stays in place for up to 24 hours.

    7. A knee stabilizer band so you won't ~kneed~ to deal with discomfort while exercising. It'll help provide support during lots of activities, including basketball, cycling, and running, and can be adjusted to fit the curve of each knee.

    8. A Wet & Forget shower cleaner that (gasp) you can literally leave and clean later. Instead of bending over a tub and scrubbing for eternity, all you have to do is apply it to the grimy area, go do something more enjoyable, and rinse it away the next day.

    9. Peripera Ink Velvet Lip Tint for matte-rich lips that'll last for hours and not smudge. A pigment-rich formula and a smooth, velvet-like finish will give your lips a soft pop of color that screams "I got my makeup professionally done."

    10. An under-desk walking pad so you can ~work up a sweat~ while you work at a desk. Slide this piece of equipment under a standing desk and you'll get to walk a mile (or two, or three!) during virtual meetings. Plus, it's less expensive than similar treadmills on the market!

    11. A top-rated Essence mascara that's adored by thousands of reviewers for its lash-enhancing abilities (no falsies required). Add more drama and length to your lashes with this formula that'll sculpt them and won't feel clumpy.

    12. A pair of adjustable elastic laces to turn a pair of sneakers into comfy slip-ons that'll be so easy to take on and off. Gone are the days of you stopping in the middle of a run or walk to tie flimsy shoelaces.

    13. A set of bed bands that'll make sure your fitted sheets stay in place on your mattress. If you're done waking up in tangled bedding, these babies will prevent you from constantly fixing your sleep setup.

    14. A pair of wireless Bluetooth earbuds thousands of reviewers swear by for their comfort and sound quality. They provide four-plus hours of play on a single charge, help tune out annoying noise around you, and are waterproof. Plus, they cost a fraction of the price of AirPods.

    15. A wow-worthy grout cleaner that'll probably make you believe in magic, because it'll remove years and years of dirt and grime from floor tiles.

    16. A portable paw washer for cleaning your doggo's dirty paws. This container has silicone bristles that gently remove debris, mud, and dirt from your pup's paws without making a mess.

    17. A Revlon dual hair dryer and brush that'll dry *and* style your 'do at the same time. Its three heat settings will get to work on wet hair, while its rounded edges and an oval brush design increase volume and curl your ends.

    18. A dual-ended brow pencil and spoolie, so you can achieve natural-looking brows with minimal effort. Fill in hair gaps with the self-sharpening mechanical brow pencil, run the spoolie across arches to shape 'em up, and you'll be good to go.

Your fur baby gets to enjoy a little pampering while you, the happy pet parent, gets to keep the couch clean. It's a win-win situation. 🐶

    Promising review: "I was first given a bottle of Folex by someone I hired to clean my carpets. Since then, I’ve used this product on just about every kind of stain imaginable, and it has almost never let me down. We just had a large tomato sauce spill on our dining room carpet that we didn’t find for about two weeks after it happened. I wasn’t sure if even Folex would work, since that stain was dry and set in. I gave the spot a few squirts, then worked the cleaner into the carpet with my fingers. After a few seconds, I could already see the spot fading. Once I blotted the spot with a clean cloth, the spot was gone! I have no idea how this stuff can be so good, but it is. I’ll never be without it." —Tony Z

    26. A foot file so good at gently removing dead skin, you'll gasp at your newly soft heels that were once crusty, callused, and cracked. If you'd like your feet to be baby-soft again, this cheese grater-like tool can help you out!

    27. A shirt folder because putting away clothes is a time suck and results in crammed drawers. Grab this nifty board and turn your lumpy tees into almost-perfect squares every time with a few quick flips.

    28. A two-pack of stainless-steel tongue cleaners that'll top off your daily oral hygiene routine: If your tongue looks grimy and is turning a questionable color, this small tool will scrape away all the gross gunk lodged in it.

    29. A KitchenIQ sharpener because your dull knives are delaying your cooking routine. Place it on the edge of a cutting board, pull a knife through the slot a couple of times, and it'll be ready to effectively slice veggies, meats, and more food.
