    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I got this to replace my old matte balm that I got LITERALLY years ago (I know I know, should have replaced sooner) and I'm already in love with it. It's light to wear, and my lips actually breathe. It doesn't get clumpy during long wear either, and actually lasted through dinner last night. It's dead-on the same shade as my UD nude lippy, and although coverage isn't as thick and it's not as creamy, it's still perfect for a light makeup day. Highly recommend this one!" —C. Bentley

    Get it from Amazon for $5.90 (available in 11 colors).

    4. A Takeya cold brew maker to give you amazing iced coffee. It's easy to use and will save you money (spending $5 on a cold brew frequently gets expensive). You can teach yourself how to be a barista without leaving your kitchen.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    You'll get a Takeya cold brew pitcher, ultra-fine mesh filter, and instructions to help you brew delicious iced coffee.

    Just pour French press–ground beans into the fine-mesh filter, screw the filter into the lid of the pitcher, pour water into the pitcher, drop the filter into the pitcher, and place the pitcher in the fridge to brew up to 36 hours. Once it's ready, you'll have fresh cold brew coffee to drink whenever you need a pick-me-up. ☕

    BuzzFeed editor Maitland Quitmeyer swears by this coffee gadget and says: "It's so delish, it makes mornings far more bearable. It’s also great for keeping in the office when that 3 p.m. slump hits but you don’t feel like going to a coffee shop (or spending $5 on cold brew)." Read more of her Takeya cold brew maker review.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95+ (also available in a 2-quart size and three colors).

    5. 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.

    amazon.com

    Here's how to put them on: Place a fitted sheet on the bed, fold a corner of the sheet back, clamp on the Bed Band, slide the fitted sheet corner over your mattress, tuck both the Bed Band and fitted sheet under your mattress, and repeat for the other three corners.

    Promising review: "I never thought this product would actually work, but I decided to try it based on the reviews. It’s fantastic! I’ve nearly forgot what a pain it was to tug my sheet and mattress pad back into place every morning because I haven’t had to do it since I got this product. Definitely worth the nominal amount of money to eradicate that daily nuisance." —NP

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $12.99 (available in five colors and also in a two-pack, three-pack, and four-pack).

    amazon.com, amazon.com

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

    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

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "God's ramen cooker. This thing may seem like just an ordinary Tupperware, but I assure you it will blow that thin plastic garbage out of the water. It retains heat amazingly and does not bend or falter under extreme temperatures. I'm a college student and I have never felt such joy from making ramen in my small dorm microwave, for a 900-watt I recommend five minutes. Buy this product if you live and breathe air, because it is beautiful." —Theron

    9. A Revlon hot-air 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. Congrats, you've just earned an A in easy styling class.

    It also has a ceramic-coated barrel that acts as a shield against heat damage, making it easy to style your hair without breakage.

    Promising review: "Amazing product. I wish I found this 20 years ago!! I have naturally curly hair and enjoy a nice blowout without having that pin-straight 'burnt' flat iron look. This product helped me achieve the blowout look in about five minutes (yes, five!). When it comes to hair, I’m a super novice and this is by far the easiest, most effective (inexpensive) blowout. I would give this more than 5 stars if I could. Where has it been all my life?!?!" —Sara Kovach

    Get it from Amazon for $34.88+ (available in seven colors).

    10. A webcam cover so you can keep your work activity private. It'll discretely conceal your webcam while you type away at your laptop or computer.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought these because I saw them on TikTok, and they actually work really well! I used to keep a piece of electric tape over my webcams, but it was difficult to remove quickly when I need to use FaceTime. I put one of the sliders on my iMac, and one on my MacBook, and they are awesome! I would def recommend! :)" —Emily

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $6.99 (available in four colors).

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have purchased this three times and it is perfect! Totally worth all the hype on TikTok. This is a very emollient powder that sticks to the skin. I prep with sunscreen then use this. The fragrance dissipates quickly. I noticed the actual powder is bouncy to the touch. Have not used the pelican or sponge it comes with. I like to use a powder brush. It gives me full coverage and I look flawless all day. I also don’t need to blot. And I am very oily. Will certainly continue to repurchase." —Maria Webba

    Get it from Amazon for $11.11+ (available in 20 shades).

    12. A bagless, touchless stationary vacuum so you can bid farewell to flimsy dustpans that make messes worse. Just sweep debris towards this high-tech gadget and it'll instantly suck it up for you.

    Promising review: "I hate cleaning but get annoyed with the clumps of dog hair and bits of things on my kitchen floor...I usually just vacuum my tile with the vacuum which is a pain. This thing is so easy to just sweep things into and it sucks them right up. Sure it's more expensive than my actual vacuum but I've only had it three days and have used it two times." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $114 (available in six colors).

    13. A facial applicator brush to make applying skincare treatments a breeze and less time-consuming. With soft bristles and a sturdy handle, you'll be *painting* masks and serums on your face like a pro without getting your fingers covered in product.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these. I've been using them for months now and they make applying masks so much easier. I get a much more even application than I did with my hands or with other brushes. Extremely easy to use, clean and store. Love love love!" —Caterina

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $11.99 (available in two sizes and two colors).

    15. A Billie razor starter kit because you'll always have a reliable razor (and cartridges) to give you the best shave. It comes with a razor, a magnetic holder, and two blades for $9. Instead of using disposable, hard-to-use plastic razors, you can opt for this sustainable (and seamless) alternative instead.

    Natalie Brown/BuzzFeed, Kayla Suazo/BuzzFeed

    Another perk? You won't have to worry about running out of refill cartridges, because you can get 'em sent to you based on your shaving schedule. (Learn more about a Billie subscription here).

    BuzzFeed editor Emma McAnaw adores Billie razors and said: "I have VERY sensitive skin. As in, I so much as LOOK at a dull blade and suddenly I'm on a one-way trip to little red bumps. Until Billie, I had kind of just accepted that my bikini line was never going to be ~perfectly smooth~ no matter what. And yet! When I started shaving with these razors, I immediately noticed how comfortable the whole experience was. I'll be honest and say I rarely use shaving cream (very responsible for someone with sensitive skin!) and it doesn't even MATTER. The blades never nick me and I've actually seen fewer and fewer bumps, even in my ~most sensitive~ areas. I credit its charcoal shave soap that encases the five (!!!) blades so if you 'forget' cream, you'll still get super smooth results. I'm pretty confident in saying if a total klutz like me has yet to do damage with these bbs, then everyone can benefit from these." Check out her full review, along with those of seven (!!!) other BuzzFeed editors here.

    Get it from Billie for $10 (available in six razor colors).

    16. A small device that'll keep track of your doggo's meals, because life gets busy and you really don't want to ask your roommate if they fed your pet for the millionth time. It also comes in handy if you're the only one watching your fur baby and need to double-check.

    reviewer holding feeding device tracker
    amazon.com

    It comes with little slots you can slide for a.m. and p.m. times throughout the week, so you'll always know if you need to refill your dog's food and drink bowls.

    Promising review: "Awesome product! There are four of us who were working together to feed the dogs. It simplified everything because I no longer have to text to see if anyone had fed them every morning. Now I just to see if it's green and if not, I feed them and indicate it. We all love it so much!" —Toni Deegan

    Get it from Amazon for $6.

    17. An earwax removal kit because it's been a longggg time since you've cleaned out your ears. A micro-foam formula gently softens earwax and a bulb syringe helps flush it out, so you don't have to go digging for gold with a cotton swab to get the job done.

    Reviewer photo of their finger covered in chunks of ear wax
    amazon.com

    This kit, which has received 1,500+ 5-star reviews, comes with a bottle of earwax removal drops and a bulb syringe. To use, squeeze 5 to 10 drops of the earwax remover into your ear, wait a few minutes for the formula to break up earwax, flush your ear with warm water using the bulb syringe, and you'll be done! 

    Promising review: "After messing around with a cotton bud in my left ear (never do this), I managed to fully block all hearing in it. I ran around like a headless chicken for about 24 hours because the pressure in the ear was so intense. One treatment of Debrox and the blockage immediately subsided. Trick is to let it sit in the ear for at least five minutes. Drain the ear, wait another five minutes, then irrigate with the bulb and warm water, never cold. Seldom does a remedy work as advertised; this one does!" —Chazmax1

    Get it from Amazon for $5.98.

    18. A blind spot mirror so you can see if there's another car coming *before* you back out of a parking spot or switch lanes on a highway. It rotates 360 degrees and you can easily adjust it to fit different-sized car mirrors. No more second-guessing yourself when you're driving.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Each mirror has a small swivel mounting bracket that's easy to install and comes with 3M adhesive to make sure it doesn't fall off. They're also rust resistant and won't get hazy during driving trips.

    Promising review: "I bought these for mine and my mom's car a while back ago and these little things are great. Since I got my license I've hated merging or switching lanes; I never felt good or safe doing it. Since having these its been a blessing, I feel less like a scared new driver. I'm currently encouraging my sister and friends to invest in these too! These are also great for backing up, because you can see exactly how close you are to hitting the car behind, and it's helpful when I parallel in the city." —Mariam Abass

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $7.97+ (available in four shapes and also in four-packs).

    19. A ribbed halter top with a built-in bra that'll keep your chest comfy and supported without underwire. This wardrobe essential is anything but basic, because it can be worn alone or under any cardigan, flannel, or lightweight jacket.

    Klassy Network

    Klassy Network is a woman-owned small business that sells stylish blouses, swimwear, eyewear, and their well-known Brami top, aka a top that provides amazing support and doesn't require a bra underneath!

    My colleague Chantel Turner discovered this top on TikTok and said: "*I* wish that every top I owned was a Brami top so I could trash all of my traditional bras. I own a few of their shirts in different styles and they are absolutely amazing! Somehow the shirts provide the support of a bra without you having to actually wear a bra. It feels extremely comfortable." Read more of her Brami top review (it's number 17).

    Promising review: "I totally love these Brami halter tops. Being a cup size C, not having to wear a bra was almost impossible for me. With the Brami I am so happy that I do not have to use a bra plus still keep my boobs in place. These are so versatile that I use them everywhere, all the time, even to do yoga. I just love them!" —Klassy Network Shopper

    Get it from Klassy Network for $39.99 (available in women's sizes XS–3XL and 12 colors).

    20. An Essence waterproof mascara for wow-worthy lashes that cost less than $5 and won't get flaky. It'll help lift and sculpt lashes, thanks to conic fiber brushes that'll gently coat tiny lash line hairs and add a little volume to them.

    reviewer holds tube of mascara between one eye without mascara and one eye with longer, more fuller lashes after applying mascara
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "As much as I would love to only wear all-natural, hydrating-type mascaras, they just weigh my lashes down so badly. I saw a great review on the original version of this mascara and was happy to see that they had a waterproof version! I tried it and I loved it. It lengthens, makes lashes look fuller, and stays on ALL day. I typically don't put it on my bottom lashes, so I cannot confirm the smudging side of things. Note: I do use a makeup remover at the end of the day because a regular cleansing face wipe is not going to get this off (except maybe Neutrogena?). If you need your lashes to stay curled and in place all night, this is your mascara!" —Dawn

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    21. A sunrise simulation alarm clock you'll want to use when the days get shorter. This wake-up light gradually shifts from dark red to bright yellow, so you can stop hitting the snooze button and get out of bed. It may be 6 a.m., but at least you won't be a zombie.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I get up really early for work and forcing my body to accept that it's time to wake up when it's still pitch black outside has always been a struggle for me. I've been using this alarm clock for the last two weeks and it's made such a huge difference in my mornings. I set it for gradual brightness with bird sounds and no longer feel like my sleep is interrupted. It feels like I'm naturally waking up to sun coming through my window. I didn't expect a little alarm clock could change my mood so much." —Evelini

    Get it from Amazon for $45.98+ (available in two colors).

    22. A reusable gel eye mask for your tired, puffy eyes that need a little TLC after you stayed up too late. Just microwave it for 20 seconds or place it in the freezer, rest your head on a pillow, and you'll be ready for some self-care time.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Some reviewers also recommend this gel eye mask for migraine relief, since it provides a gentle cooling sensation around the eyes, cheekbones, and forehead areas of the face.

    Optix 55 is a small, family-owned business specializing in eye health products. You'll find a bunch of goods including anti-fog solutions, computer glasses, sunglasses, eye masks, and more.

    Promising reviews: "I don't get enough sleep like all mothers of small children. So unfortunately I get dark puffy circles under my eyes. My daughter told me I had gray under my eyes one day and that's when I decided I needed to try something new. I have used this product about five times now I do have to say the darkness might night be going away but the puffiness definitely is and it just makes me feel refreshed after I use it. Also I love that I can still do other things when I wear it with the the Velcro, because, again, as a mother of a small child, I never stop. I definitely wouldn't recommend this product." —Amber

    Get it from Amazon for $9.55 (available in three colors).

    23. A pack of window fly traps because pesky insects won't leave your home. Each clear adhesive sticks to a window and easily captures bugs (flies, gnats, and more), so you don't have to chase 'em down with a swatter or paper towel.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    These window fly traps are nontoxic (they're made with waterproof paper and sticky glue) and are so easy to use. Just peel them off the white release liner, place the trap on your window, and peel off the big release liner to start catching and trapping bugs.

    Promising review: "Earlier this summer, we had a legitimate fly infestation. Maybe 100 flies buzzing around the apartment, seemingly out of nowhere. 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

    Get a 12-pack from Amazon for $9.49.

    24. A set of shoulder-protecting pads that you can slip right onto bra straps to prevent chafing and digging. If your shoulder is always irritated after wearing a bra, these little tools will be a holy grail and crate a comfy barrier between bra straps and your skin.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I cannot believe how lucky I am to have finally found this product. I was having lunch with my friends and asked if anybody else had a perfect bra whose straps didn't always fall off their shoulders. The answer was not a bra but these strap holders that hug your shoulders comfortably and are easy to use by enclosing it around your bra straps. They then can be used with any bra! Oh my goodness, I am telling everyone I know about them!" —momzart

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $9.98 (available in 26 colors).

A five-pack of washable mesh shopping totes that'll be there for your next farmer's market overhaul: not only are they a chic carryall, but they can also fit a whole lot of produce, jars, and other food (buh-bye, breakable plastic bags). If Mary Poppins saw these bags, she would definitely be impressed.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love these bags. No more plastic at the farmer's market for me. They are light and hold a huge amount of product. They are also easy to transport as they can be stuffed into small places when not in use. They are also very sturdy. My only slight complaint is the long handles on them, but that isn't a real issue for me." —DeeDee

    Get a five-pack from Amazon for $13.98.

    27. And a bag handle holder to make sure your precious groceries don't end up all over the sidewalk in transit. Carry multiple bags at a time without cramping up your shoulder, arms, and fingers.

    Promising review: "Like a lot of reviewers I’ve read on here, I do not like to make more than one trip packing my groceries home and up multiple floors. So to be able to load up multiple bags with a nicely cushioned handle that does not cut into your fingers is definitely a game changer!" —Murdog

    Promising review: "These pens are awesome! They are very easy to use and come with good instructions. I haven’t even used it 10 times yet and I’m already seeing results, so I’m excited to see it keep getting better!! The flavor is a little bit unpleasant but not bad at all and definitely worth it. I also haven’t noticed it making my teeth sensitive at all, which I was a little worried about since I already have sensitive teeth, so I’m glad it’s not affecting that!" —Sami Froemke

    The Roll Keeper is a small business based in Kelso, Washington, that sells various organizational goods. In addition to the T-shirt roll holder above, you'll find similar roll holders for bottles, pens, and crafting supplies. 

    BuzzFeed writer Mallory Mower swears by this roll holder for folding tees: "Before getting this I was driving myself up the wall with my bad folding habits. I basically shoved all my shirts into the storage drawers under my bed, because I have a teeny tiny closet (the picture above gives you a solid idea of how small it is). This has given me a massive amount of clothing storage I didn't have before. The quality is stellar and Traci is 10/10 the most thoughtful person I've purchased a product from!"

    33. Honeyskin Ultimate Face and Body Cream to help treat a myriad of skincare issues, including eczema, dryness, and redness. Formulated with superfoods (aloe vera and manuka honey), this cream quickly absorbs into the skin and helps nourish irritated areas on your face.

    If you have sensitive skin, you may want to test a small amount of this cream on your hand or wrist first before applying it to your face.

    Promising review: "I am absolutely blown away by the results from using this product. I have moderate rosacea made severe by pregnancy, and was at a major loss as to how to manage it. Unable to treat my rosacea as I normally would and with my sensitivity at an all time high (I couldn’t tolerate anything more than Vaseline), I decided to give this a whirl and could not be happier that I did. I think my picture speaks for itself, but within one week this cream SIGNIFICANTLY improved my rosacea and sensitivity and by a month my skin was completely smooth with minimal redness and scarring left from the months long flare I’d been having. Fan of Honeyskin for life here!" —LR

    Get it from Amazon for $15.97+ (available in three sizes).

    34. 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

    Get it from Amazon for $18 (available in five colors).

    35. And a set of makeup sponges for blending face makeup. It can be used with BB cream, concealer, foundation, and powder-based formulas. No more streaks, smudging, or caking if you're trying to achieve a professional-level look.

    Promising review: "Don't hesitate just buy these. I was using the Real Technique sponges for years and I bought these on a whim after seeing several TikToks praising these. I love these sponges and the price. I apply liquid foundation with a damp sponge and these work better than real techniques. They are dense but soft and 'bouncy.' I wash mine between each use and these hold up very well and much better than the RT. Very happy with my purchase and the price. Will definitely continue to buy." —chris

    Get a set of five from Amazon for $7.55.
