    Promising review: "My Staffordshire is very active and the Texas heat can take its toll on his paw pads. I was looking for something to help soothe his paws without taking the natural roughness away. Putting the Musher's Secret on Sammy two to three times a week, I have seen a great improvement. Before his pads were cracked and rough, now they are no longer cracked but still tough enough for him to run around on the rough terrain and play hard. I would definitely recommend this product for your fur babies." —Carrie

    Promising review: "I was traveling for 14 days and dreaded how the neatly packed suitcase usually became the suitcase from hell after a couple of days of travel. These bags were wonderful! I rolled my clothing and had very little wrinkling. I divided the bags into pants, tops, undies, and shoes. We were usually in the city, but had plans for a rafting trip as well. I put all my rafting clothing and supplies into another bag. It also came with a laundry bag, which was very handy. It was so easy to move from hotel to hotel because my bag was always neat and orderly. I am thinking of buying more to organize my chest of drawers at home." —Amazon Customer

    Promising review: "Amazing product. No chemicals, no toxic odor. Shower wall hard-water stains completely wiped out. I used other products on my 10-year-old oven door and it never came as clean. First try, I wiped on, wiped off. (Recommended at least five minutes.) Second try, I applied Pink and left it overnight. Baked-on grit was softened enough I could use a spoon to scrape. End result...BIG DIFFERENCE. By far the best versatile, nontoxic, and gentle abrasive product." —ap808

    Promising review: "I have to tell you that I was extremely skeptical, regardless of the number of positive reviews. I had been suffering from allergy-like symptoms. It was only after coming across an ad for wine filters that I made the connection on what could possibly be the root cause. So I decided what the heck, give it the shot. I am so glad I did. The difference has been unbelievable. No allergy symptoms, no hangover, just enjoyment. Do yourself a favor and try them." —Darrell H.

    BuzzFeed editor AnaMaria Glavan swears by this beauty product and said: "It does exactly what the Glossier brand claims to do; it gives me a filled-in eyebrow that doesn’t look filled in. The finish looks natural, which is exactly what I wanted — my facial caterpillars have never looked better." You can read more of their Glossier Boy Brow review here (it's #5).

    Promising review: "Wanted to try something different to eyebrow pencils and a brush pomade (as felt they looked too blocky). This product is fantastic, brushes individual brows into place, pigments them, and keeps them looking groomed but fluffy all day. I use it with the brow flick to fill in some of the sparse gaps and even them out. Definitely repurchasing." —Glossier Customer

    Get it from Glossier for $16 (available in five shades).

    Promising review: "This product is awesome. It comes with push pins that add extra support, and they were so easy to put in. We put this in our basement, which leads to the outside. Opens and closes wonderfully and will hopefully keep the bugs out this fall and the cold air in the winter. It comes a bit wide so if you have a bigger door it would work. We just cut off the end to make it fit." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in three colors).

    8. A color-depositing conditioner because you won't have to use DIY hair dye kits *or* spend lots of money on salon appointments to upkeep your 'do. It's semi-permanent and helps boost the vibrancy of color-treated strands every time you wash your hair. Buh-bye, fading, it's been real!

    Promising review: "I recently took the red hair plunge and I was prepared to deal with the constant upkeep because red hair fades so quickly, but then I found this and it’s unbelievably good! I got Copper and it’s perfect on my 6rc hair. I use it as a deep conditioner like once a week and the color stays so vibrant. I don’t have to use freezing water every time I wash my hair, thank god! I tried using it like the directions said, but I felt like my hair didn’t get ‘clean,’ so I don’t use it like a shampoo, but the color, smell, and results are amazing and I highly recommend it." —beautypot

    Get it from Amazon for $22+ (available in two sizes and in 19 colors).

    9. A shower phone mount that'll make it so easy to watch an episode of Squid Game *and* wash your hair at the same time. The best part? You can still touch the screen without getting your phone soaked, thanks to a protective barrier.

    Promising review: "My girlfriend was always taking her phone to the shower. I have been looking for a phone mount on the shower for a while now and its just the product that I have been looking for. The adhesive looks extremely strong. It can even fit my huge Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G phone. You can even use the touchscreen while showering!! The sound doesn't distort inside the mount when playing music. Tested the splash-proof a couple of times and it looks like it does the job! My girlfriend loves it." —Yong Park

    Model spraying the mist on her face

    Habit is a Latinx-owned small business specializing in SPF-friendly skincare.

    BuzzFeed writer Nusrat Sultana owns this SPF mist and said: "I've been using this every day and I love it! It's so convenient to just spray it on over your makeup or once you're ready instead of adding another layer of lotion to your face. It's nongreasy so it doesn't get you oily; it only gives your skin a pretty, dewy look. Plus, touch-ups are super easy since all I have to do is spray again and there's no worry of disturbing makeup." 

    Get this mister from Habit for $30.

    11. 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.,

    Be sure to check with your doctor first to address any knee concerns *before* trying a knee stabilizer band for workouts.

    Promising review: "I could not get up from a seating position without pain. I was getting ready to adjust the height of the toilet and bed. When these arrived I put them on and was so skeptical that these skinny strips could do anything (after years of knee braces, stretch bandages, mechanical getups). I was seated and had to rush to the kitchen and was halfway there when I froze — no pain. No pain. It is unbelievable. I can look for my shoes under the bed and get back up with no god-searing pain! Buy! I'm getting another pair; don't want to risk misplacing." —Amazon Customer

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $13.88 (available in four colors).

    12. A surface cover to make your boring countertops look *way better* than they did before. Everyone will be asking, "did you redo part of your kitchen?!" when IRL, you just stuck on this marble-print adhesive and didn't get expensive renovations.

    This marble-print surface cover is so easy to use: measure your kitchen countertop, cut the amount you'll need, peel off the adhesive liner, and stick it on! Some reviewers also recommend using a credit card to gently smooth out any bubbles that may pop up in the process.

    If you want to spruce up other areas around home, this cover also works great for cabinets and other pieces of furniture (bookcases, desks, dressers, and more).

    Promising review: "I fell in love with this contact paper. I used it in my kitchen to turn my counter from black marble to white marble and they came out amazing. I wanted to do my whole house! I love that it's so easy to clean also, anything and everything has been spilled on the counter after application and everything has come off with no residue left behind! Will for sure be ordering again for further home projects!" —Ari M. Esparza

    Get it from Amazon for $5.09+ (available in four sizes).

    13. An anti-fog spray that'll help keep your glasses clear while you wear a mask. This gentle formula doesn't leave streaks behind and prevents fogging, so you don't have to stop and wipe down your cloudy frames throughout the day. 

    It can also be used on other fog-prone surfaces, including binoculars and windshields!

    Promising review: "I bought this product because wearing a face mask makes my glasses fog. It works all day with only one application, unless I have been doing a lot of activity, then I might have to reapply. Just spray it on the clean lenses of your glasses then wipe dry with a clean dry, lintless cloth, as simple as that. I was so impressed that I gave my second bottle to my team members for them to use. I would not hesitate to buy this again when I need more in the future." —Tonya Crippen

    Get it from Amazon for $10.55.

    14. A soft footrest so you can prop your feet up *and* avoid cramping while you type on your computer. (You're def going to want to give those heels and toes some sweet, sweet relief during the workday!)


    Promising review: "This is my first time using a soft footrest versus a hard plastic one, and I love it! Now that I am working from home full time, I was desperate for some ergonomic help, and this foot rest suited my needs perfectly. I especially love the material, it feels so delightful on bare feet! Having the option to remove the bottom cushion allows for flexibility with my chair height." —Kim K.

    Promising review: "Unfortunately I, like many, suffer from bad breath and have tried so many things to stop it. I read that sometimes it's the germs on your tongue that can cause it, so I went crazy trying to brush my tongue. Of course we all know how that ends — gagging, watery eyes, and it still looks like that gross film is on your tongue. This product is really easy to use and I can get very far back on my tongue without activating my gag reflex. Also, it doesn't have the feeling like brushing with a toothbrush does. This cleaner just glides across my tongue, taking all the icky germs and bad breath with it. I love my nice, new, fresh breath and bolster of confidence!" —jordan

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $12.99.

    16. A ring size adjuster you'll love because it'll prevent loose rings from falling off your fingers. Slide one of these onto the back of a loose ring and it'll stay in place while you type on a laptop, cook meals, and exercise with weights.

    Promising review: "I saw this on a BuzzFeed thing a while ago and I thought it'd be worth looking into. I'm going to be going on vacation soon and I'm terrified of my ring falling off my finger and getting lost in the ocean. I'm so happy I purchased this, it makes it so it's incredibly difficult to put over my knuckle so I know I know it's secure. I could probably 'shorten' it if I wanted to. If you're second guessing it, just buy it. I'm a skeptic with stuff too." —Natalie

    Get a 12-pack from Amazon for $7.99.

    17. Water bottle–cleaning tablets that'll eliminate stubborn streaks and odors from your fave tumblers. These tiny tablets are chlorine free and easily dissolve, so you can stay hydrated and not drink out of a stinky container.

    Promising review: "I used my first few tabs on my insulated water bottles to just wash/refresh and I didn’t realize how amazing these bad boys really are. We used them in an insulated metal travel coffee cup thing that was stained black inside and after soaking about two hours in hot water, it looked completely brand new again. I don’t know what kind of black magic is packed into these little tablets, but they’re totally worth every penny." —jtobair

    Get a 12-pack from Amazon for $8+ (also available in a 36-pack and 72-pack).

    18. A grooming glove you'll want to have on hand for a ~purrfect~ brushing session that won't leave clumps of hair on the floor: This small tool gently picks up shedded fur and gives your kitty a nice massage in the process.

    Promising review: "This glove is the ultimate pet mitt that massages every muscle of your pet baby. Sami rolls over after I finish one side to make sure I cover her entire body. Not only is it a treat for my Sami but it removes a lot of fur and her coat is shiny, smooth, and soft, which is a plus for me and no fur is on the floor or couch. This is a great price and a must-buy." —Cody Blackwolf

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in four colors). 

    19. 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: "Love this. I have many items to plug in now that I have to office at home. There’s plenty of room to plug in two laptops, a computer, a monitor, and my Alexa safely. It’s a little bulkier than I was expecting but that is due to the room your items will need." —Jennifer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    21. And a thin socket cover with an attached power strip, because you can *finally* push your couch against a wall without an awkward gap. If you're done dealing with a bulky plug or power strip, this small gadget can help.

    Promising review: "This product is awesome! We bought one in the office to stop a nearby chair from continuously hitting the outlet plugs. It solved the problem right away. So we ordered three more to use anywhere there is bulk on the wall. It saves space, makes arranging furniture and desks easy, it's clean looking. Someone is a genius. Thanks so much!" —Jay

    Promising review: "The best thing I’ve ever bought for my hair and the only thing I’ll use on it!!! 100,000,000,000/10 recommend this. Cuts drying/styling time down to 15 minutes. Leaves my hair shiny without any frizz as if I just straightened it. Make sure you use a heat protectant as always. Buy it!" —Tuesday Henry

    Promising review: "I will spare you the horrific 'before' picture of the complete nightmare that was my closet floor. Just imagine a dusty mess with shoes thrown all over each other in a sad attempt at giving some appearance of order, and you will have a good idea of why buying this shoe organizer was one of the best ideas I've had this year. The floor now looks so neat and tidy I can't believe my eyes every time I open my closet doors." —Veronica, just an average reader, you know?

    Promising review: "Literally one of the best items I’ve bought off of Amazon. I have an English bulldog and now that summer is approaching, he’s shedding his winter coat. I let this baby go one round through my kitchen and all the hair is gone! It was able to pick up all the hair in one round while it would’ve taken me two rounds of sweeping! Don’t waste your time on other models and buy this one!" —hayden

    Get it from Amazon for $199.99 (available in two colors).

    25. An all-in-one avocado slicer that divides, pits, *and* slices your avocados for you. This nifty gadget ~halves~ the time it'll take to get these fruits ready for guacamole and toast.

    Promising review: "Of all the kitchen gadgets I own, we use this one the most! We eat an avocado almost every day, so I love that this does everything we need! It cuts it in half effortlessly, pulls the pit, and slices the good stuff. If you are eat avocados regularly, invest in this tool. It will save you so much time and effort compared to using several different things to get the job done. I've recommended this to several friends and they've all thanked me for it! As an added bonus I like that we can wash it in the dishwasher." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    26. A pair of Wad-Free attachments for your bedsheets that are always jumbling themselves up in a ball in the dryer. Slide one on each sheet, place the sheets in the dryer, and they'll be tangle free when you take them out.

    the wad free pads attached to a bed sheet

    Promising review: "I’m going to admit I was skeptical but these things actually work! My front-loader machines twist my sheets up super tight and then take two full cycles to dry (even after straightening them out). These little things kept them loose and allowed enough air circulation to dry them in one 40-minute cycle so I could get them right back on the bed. It was SO much better than the usual heading to bed and realizing the sheets were still half wet and then sleeping on top of the comforter for two days. Definitely worth it." —Laurie Chiumento

    Get a pair from Amazon for $18.99.

    27. A set of thick velvet slip covers to instantly turn any dull sofa into a beautiful seating area. If your couch is covered in stains or looks a little worn, just place a couple of these on top for a jaw-dropping transformation that requires minimal effort. 😲

    Get it from Amazon for $52.49+ (available in two sizes and 10 colors).

    28. A vegan stain remover stick for your clothes that've been dirty for wayyy too long.

    Promising review: "Shipment was received quickly and everything was well packed in sustainable packaging as advertised. I’ve used this bar only once for now on multiple types of stains on a cotton apron. It really works well, needs to be applied generously on the wet article. No need to buy plastic spray bottles anymore for localized stains. Thanks!" —Etsy Customer

    Promising review: "OK, this is something I've been seeing on BuzzFeed's lists forever and thought seriously? It's a tiny spatula? So what? But my foundation got low and this was cheap and I was sick of seeing it listed, so I bought it. (Really showed them, right?) It arrived right as my current bottle was 'empty' and I purchased a new bottle because I had no faith that it would make a difference. How much makeup could be left on the sides of the bottle? Six weeks! Six! I continued to use the 'empty' foundation daily for six weeks with this tiny spatula! I just use drugstore cosmetics so a bottle is maybe $15 and I must have been tossing half of it before I got this! Imagine what you'll save on high-end stuff! Easy to clean and disinfect." —S. Lytle

    Promising review: "I take nine prescriptions every day between my morning and nights. Add supplements to that and it equals a lot of pills. Until I found these, I wasn’t able find any organizer large enough. After I got and used the first of this organizer, I immediately ordered a second. I only have to set my meds up twice a month and they stay fresh, handy, and neat. And when traveling, you can leave the rack at home and just toss the individual modules in your suitcase with no fear of them opening and dumping your meds all over your clothes. I highly recommend this system." —Bernice

    Promising review: "I got these for my mom as a stocking stuffer for Christmas and OMG, she absolutely loves them! I kind of got them as a gag since we are always teasing her about trying to hold the ketchup and dip her fries or nuggets while she's driving, but this little plastic holder made her SO happy, lol. 😊 They work great for pretty much most sauce cups and it has a handy little attachment so that if the sauce comes in packets, you can pour it in there and still attach it to the air vent. My mom tells everyone who gets in her car about them and I will definitely purchase as a gift for more people!" —Summer

    Promising review: "I remodeled my house and added a walk-in closet. It looked amazing! Then I added the velvet hangers, and I just can't believe how much nicer it looks compared to the round plastic ones. Definitely makes it look more high end. It is also true that you can fit way more clothes in you closet with these. Love! Because they look so nice, they have upped my organization I have my clothes arranged by type, material, and color ;). Who knew a hanger could do all that?!" —Wendy H

    35. A zipper puller for tops and dresses that are difficult to zip up. You may not have double-jointed elbows, but at least this small lanyard can help you when you're getting dressed in a hurry.

    Promising review: "I purchased this zipper puller for a very dear friend of mine. She recently lost her husband after 62 years together. She loves to dress up and was concerned that she would not be able to wear dresses with back zippers; that was always her husband's job. She was so thrilled when I gave her this gift, she actually cried. Sometimes the smallest of gifts brings so much happiness."—reds

    36. A row of cut-up books because you won't have a view of your Wi-Fi router, tangled monitor wires, and charging cords at your desk. This piece of decor will cleverly hide all your e-clutter, so you can answer emails and hop on video calls in a neater WFH space.

    before: a home office with a pile of routers, Amazon Alexas, and other cords next to the computer; after: the same space, except all you see is a row of colorful book spines
    Covogoods / Etsy

    Here's how it's made: The spines of the books are attached together and have all the pages and covers cut out of them, except two covers on the ends. You can customize how long you would like it to be and choose a color scheme.

    Promising review: "Wonderful!! We spent the past month remodeling our living room, but we didn't account for how AWFUL the cable boxes and modem were going to look on our beautiful new shelves. Saw this, and had to have it! Covogoods not only communicated quickly with me, but were EXTREMELY accommodating in my requests. Turned out exactly how I envisioned it, and dimensions were spot on! No more ugly cable boxes and wires!" —Lindsey Martinez

    37. A light-blocking sleep mask, so you can rest if you just got back from an overnight shift or stayed up too late. It's daytime, but you deserve to catch up on ZZZs regardless.

    Promising review: "Absolutely love this sleep mask! It is so soft and adjustable for maximum comfort. It really keeps the light from disturbing your relaxation as well! You can also spray a bit of lavender essential oil on it, for an added bit of pampering. It comes with a cute carry case and a nice clip! " —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.98 (available in two colors).

    38. An RFID-blocking credit card holder because it'll keep your driver's license and credit cards safe from identity theft. It also fits great in a backpack or tote bag for easy access while you're out and about.

    It comes with six credit card slots, a currency pouch, and one pocket for optimal storage.

    Promising review: "This is the smallest wallet I've ever owned and I love it. I took it on a long trip where all I needed to carry were the necessities. In this case, that was my driver's license, medical card, credit card, and a few paper bills. It was so convenient and left me with a lot of extra room in my bag." —Hannah

    39. Cable savers so you don't have to say goodbye to your frayed laptop or phone charger. These babies help extend the life of lightly damaged cables and wires. (Plus, you'll save some money on tech repairs.)


    Promising review: "I’ve just had to replace a charging cable for my iPad, the wires broke within the insulation, within an inch of the connector/plug end. Then I found out about these spiral coil flexible silicone wire protectors. They keep the wire cable from being stressed from bending. I bought a bunch of these and have put them on both ends of every charging cable for every device, iPad, cellphone, etc. that I own." —Richard Virchow

    40. Iridescent privacy film that'll fill your bathroom with mini rainbows when sunlight trickles in and give you some privacy. Your window will look like an iridescent piece of art *and* prevent your neighbors from peeping in.

    Promising review: "I love this product! I live in an apartment complex and my bedroom window happens to be along one of the main walkways for the whole complex. This product looks so cute and it gives me me the privacy I needed. It was pretty easy to install and it can easily be removed if I need to relocate." —Melina

    42. And a Tile Mate because it'll help you find your iPhone at home, even if it fell under the bed, is buried in a stack of clothes, or is right in front of you. 🤦‍♀️ This little gadget will make it ring, so you can get to its location before giving up your search.

    Promising review: This is my third year using Tile and I know that I couldn’t live without it. Tile saves me so much time as it enables me to find my keys, purse, and car by just pressing the center of the tile. It is music to my ears when I find them — that little jingle when I find my lost item." —Tile Customer

    Get it from Tile for $47.99+ (available in a two-pack and four-pack).
