    1. A comfy posture corrector to help you slouch less over time. It's designed to help align your back, so you can gradually go from wearing it for 30 minutes to 1–2 hours a day to help improve posture. It's also adjustable, so it won't dig into your chest or shoulders.

    A customer review before and after photo of them wearing the posture corrector

    Promising review: "I have back issues. Serious ones. Aside from the degeneration and bulging discs, I have an awful hunch that seems to be getting progressively worse since I had my baby. Apart from how I look, I am also in constant pain and taking pain medication all day is not an option for me. My doctor suggested a posture corrector to see if I could get any relief at all and although I wasn't very optimistic, I gave it a shot. It took a couple of days to get used to it, but I'm so glad I took his advice!! It helps my posture a great deal and my doctor said he attributes the pain relief I feel in my neck and low back to my posture being better. It helps my body remember not to slouch and in doing so has also helped my quality of life immensely!! Highly recommended! Seriously!!" —Corinne Cruz

    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 48,000+ people on Amazon gave it a 5-star review for its jaw-dropping results.,

    Promising review: "I had read so many reviews about this serum and I was skeptical to buy and I am so happy that I did! This serum works wonders on my skin. I had slight hyperpigmentation on my face and I do have acne scars, my skin looked dull and lacked moisture, after I applied this serum everyday in the morning my skin looks so better than before. My pigmentation is reduced, my skin looks fresh and moisturized. My acne scars are the same, but I think that I will use it for more months to see the difference. Overall the serum is not oily and it quickly absorbs my skin. I am very happy with my purchase and I highly recommend this to buy." —Kavita

    3. Earring lifts so you can say goodbye to drooping lobes and wear bigger hoops and studs. These little helpers prop up earrings and prevent holes from stretching out. Instead of using standard backs, you can place one of these on each earring for a little assistance.

    Get a pair from The Grommet for $49.95.

    4. 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 to the grimy area, go do something more enjoyable, and rinse it away the next day.

    Promising review: "I have been having shower draining issues so there was a build up of soap scum in my shower. I have a very weak stomach and cleaning the shower makes me physically ill. I have tried several products that have claimed to be no scrub/wipe but this has been the only one that has worked. I sprayed it after my shower and left it to sit until the next night. Found that A LOT of the grime had disappeared. Now, was it perfect? No. But I think with consistent use it will get there. Highly recommend this product." —KZ

    Promising review: "This stuff works! I’ve never had a wart in my life! At first I thought it was a small callus but as months went by it was getting larger. I started to google and realized I had a plantar wart on my thumb! Eww, embarrassing! So I got the freeze off and thought 'This has to work!' Nope! I tried the freeze off three times and nothing! I than realized the same thing was happening on my other thumb, a small callus but I knew that the wart had spread! Now I was desperate to get rid of them and knew I had waited too long! Bought the invisible strips and it removed my small wart in four days and my big wart in eight!! I couldn’t believe it. I left strips on for two days then pulled back the dead skin with a cuticle clipper and reapplied! My bigger wart was a little tougher to removed and I had irritated my skin trying to cut it out, so I left it alone for few days before reapplying strip and by the second 48-hour treatment, it was gone! I thought my skin would be damaged but it looks like nothing was ever there!" —Audrey N.

    Promising review: "OK, yes, it looks like a cheese grater and, yes, it is darn I was a little nervous about it. But I gotta say, this is a great foot rasp. I'm one of those people who runs around barefoot as much as possible and my feet get pretty dry and callused as a result. This rasp worked like a charm to remove all the dead skin and have my feet looking and feeling better in no time. Follow the directions and don't push too hard, let the rasp do the work, then there are no worries about cutting yourself or removing too many layers. The fabric storage pouch is a nice touch. It helps you store the rasp without worries of hurting yourself or damaging other items in your drawer. I would highly recommend this rasp." —Kindle Customer

    Promising review: "I was born with no cartilage between my knee and my kneecap on my right knee. It’s given me so many problems over the years. I was told I would need a knee replacement by 30. I’ve tried every knee brace under the sun. Some worked temporarily but no matter what I would feel sharp pain. This brace is the first relief I have felt while exercising, walking, running, etc. I’m so thrilled. The way it’s designed you’re really able to get the support you desire...tighten/loosen for your comfort. Highly recommend!" —Amazon Customer

    Promising review: "I cannot live without these for 12-hour hospital shifts. This is an unbelievable product! I work 12-hour shifts in the hospital and need protection for the corn on my left big toe. I purchased the size large and it fit well. Underneath my socks and athletic shoes I completely forgot I was wearing it — bonus! The silicone is very soft and flexible and cleans easily. The product is priced well for the quality and quantity that is provided. Would absolutely recommend this since it's held up quite well for the 17 hours I often have it on (from the time I wake up until I'm back from my shift). Cleans and dries easily and has maintained its shape." —LJ

One pump, day and night, and within a few days I was catching a makeup-less cheekbone glow in the mirror that *definitely* never was happening before. But then I started taking my new juicy skin for granted. When I ran out I debated if I needed to order more, but my skin quickly told me that wasn't an option. Within a week I was looking dry, dull, and my cheeks started feeling more textured. I ran back to this serum and it welcomed me back with open arms. Now I plan to never be apart ever again."

    17. A cool pill-removing, pumice-esque stone that'll help revive clothes you always wear. Brush this baby across your fave sweatshirts or sweaters and say buh-bye to bad pilling. They'll look *almost* brand new in no time.

    BuzzFeed/Maitland Quitmeyer

    BuzzFeed Shopping editor Maitland Quitmeyer loves this little tool! She said: "Like many of you, I've been living in sweats and PJs during this almost year of WFH full time. And it's made me revisit the state of some of my loungewear. Take for example, this college sweatshirt I wear all the time — as evidenced by the rather EXTENSIVE pilling all over it. So when I saw this pumice-esque sweater stone (it's made from upcycled car windshield glass — how cool is that?!), I decided it was worth the try. We've featured electric pill removers (mostly the fan-favorite Conair one) many times, and they really work. But sometimes you're looking for a little more detail or control — that's where this stone comes in handy. I was able to navigate around the contours of the logo on my sweatshirt with ease, removing pills using the corner or the entire flat bottom in a few quick strokes. It truly took no time at all — the sweatshirt was done in mere minutes." Read more of her Celsious Sweater Pill Remover review.

    Promising review: "It’s a great product. So far I’ve noticed a pretty significant difference in the inflammation on my dogs paw pads. She has also seemed to stop licking! I bought her a cone as well just so she wouldn’t lick the product because I’m just precautious, but I love it so far. The pics of her paws are about six days apart and I’ve been working a lot so I haven’t been able to use it three times a day, but once or twice has made a huge difference." —Madelaine Christopher

Now, I KNOW this cat sheds cause when I go to pet him, it's like a puff of hair in the air. I was on Amazon and found this one and thought I'd give it a try and I am SO glad I did! I brush him two to three times a day and I always find a good amount on the brush. I didn't think I would care that it was self cleaning, but it is seriously the best feature about this brush. So easy! He loves how it feels and I love how it works. I do have another cat who doesn't care for it, but she is picky about everything, so oh well! Haha!

    Promising review: "This product is worth every penny and goes a very long way. We had tired oak floors that haven’t been refinished in over 50 years. They were dried out and washed out. This product took away decades in an hour with a few rags and a lot of elbow grease. One word of caution: Floors are very slippery for a few days after use. Be very careful walking around. As a bonus, it smells amazing. It has a natural orange peel smell that is fresh and clean and not at all harsh or chemical. Highly, highly recommend." —GMD

We tried to kill them all by hand with paper towels. That worked a little, until the next morning when it seemed they were back in force. I bought the traps, put up just one pack of them and BAM! These traps caught them all and I don't know, they seemed to not want to come back after that. I took the traps down a month later or so and no more flies." —D Eisner

    Promising review: "You will be surprised how well this works. I thought it was a gimmick — but then read several articles about the benefits of bias lighting and thought I would give it a try. Setting it up takes about five minutes — very simple. The surprise comes when you turn on the TV with the bias lighting and the picture POPS! The contrast and the black level jumps and the picture looks significantly improved! It supposedly relieves eyestrain but I have never really had a problem with that so I can't comment on that." —Rgd18

    34. Mighty Patches to 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: "If you have issues with acne (especially those nasty whiteheads) but can't afford all the fancy step-by-step treatments out there, you at least need to buy these. This truly worked at minimizing my pimples, sucking up the wound and keeping big pimples from getting worse. It really does draw up the pus to the patch! I leave one on overnight and just slowly peel it off and then wipe away any remaining pus. I even let my mom, who was visiting, try it on her pimple and she loved them, so I had to order more!" —Megan Meehan

    35. A sock organizer so you can get your laundry done fast and not deal with missing pieces of clothing: just clip individual socks onto this cord, place it in the washing machine or dryer, and you won't waste time trying to find each sock's mate after a load is completed.

    Promising review: "These work. They are of good quality construction. I had a sock problem, and these have stopped the unexplained disappearance of socks. Obviously, the sock monster can't swallow the Sock Dock full of socks, only single socks." —A.D. Burnette

    Promising review: "I have rosacea all over my face, especially in my cheeks, sensitive skin with enlarged pores, and my T-zone is usually oily (I know, I have everything!). You have to apply one pump of the product on the back of your hand and mix it (it will turn green and don't be scared the color will disappear after it settles) and then you apply it all over your face, let it sit for one minute, and you will see the difference. It's magic! For those of us with rosacea, we need to apply foundation as well, but this primer alone creates a nice canvas. The texture is weightless and it blends imperceptibly into your skin and won't clog pores or settle into fine lines." —UGdg

    37. And a snout soother stick for your doggo's chapped nose. This vegan balm contains hempseed oil, grape-seed oil, jojoba oil, and vitamin E that help heal crusty and dry spots. Rub onto their snout two to three times a day for some relief.

    Promising review: "Well, I have never before been so shocked at the effectiveness of a product. Our 5-year-old Frenchie, Carol, had a nose that was so crusty, it was sprouting these long strands of more crust. There was literally crust on crust on crust. The nose had strings of crust. This nose was so crusty and repulsive, it was almost beautiful. Her nose might have resembled the rarest, most exotic geode to be mined from the rarest mine in Guatemala. A friend recommended this snout soother for Carol's repulsive nose. I was worried she would just lick it all off and it wouldn't work. We never imagined she could have a regular, soft, moist nose again. Honestly, this product is some black magic stuff! Unbelievable results in three to five days. No one paid me to write this." —Brittany
