    34 Things That'll Deliver On Their Promises (And We Have Photo Proof)

    A cult-favorite lash primer, decorative magnetic strips, packing cubes, and more things that'll do their jobs well.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A Mini Makeup Eraser because it wipes away lipstick, foundation, and mascara with JUST WATER (I repeat, JUST WATER!) — exactly like the full-size version. You'll be happy you didn't have to use a bunch of cotton pads, micellar water, or foamy cleansers to take a day's worth of makeup off.

    When you get the Makeup Eraser, pop it in the laundry before using it for the first time. If you'd like to take makeup off, wet it with a splash of warm water and then use gentle circular motions to remove makeup from your eyes, lips, and cheeks. Oh, and there are two sides: a short one that'll wipe away cosmetics and a longer one for exfoliating your face. The mini size is 2 inches x 2 inches, while the full-size is 6 inches x 3 inches.

    BuzzFeeder Jennifer Tonti loves the full-size version of the Makeup Eraser and said: "It's not just any face towel! The cloth itself is super-soft — like, softer-than-your-softest-blanket soft. Each side has a different length of fiber: the short side removes your makeup LIKE MAGIC and the 'long nap' side gently exfoliates your skin." Read more details in her full Makeup Eraser review

    2. Accent magnets that'll give your bare garage door an easy, minimal-effort upgrade without any nails or drilling. (You just have to stick them on and that's it!) Everyone will think you installed new garage doors when you just placed these decorative strips on them.

    3. A vegan ingrown hair oil for irritated bumps that won't go away after shaving 😑. Gently rub it on your underarms, legs, and bikini line post-showering to help soften skin and reduce the appearance of razor burn.

    Bushbalm

    It's recommended you apply this oil immediately after you get out of the shower, so it can easily absorb into your skin. You can also use it after waxing and laser hair removal treatments!

    Bushbalm is an Ottawa-based small business specializing in skincare for the bikini line, underarms, and other sensitive body zones. Their products help alleviate ingrown hairs, razor burn, and dark spots.

    BuzzFeed editor Katy Herman swears by this post-shaving oil and said: "I just recently received a sample of this lovely stuff, which is from an Ottawa-based small business, and I have already seen a difference in how my bikini line looks after shaving! I always struggle with razor bumps in the down-there area specifically, but this oil helps keep it soft, smooth, and bump free! The brand recommends applying it right after getting out of the shower, and you can even use it to spot-treat ingrown hairs. I'm pretty ~scent~sitive to smells, and the tea tree scent is really lovely and refreshing (it smells like a spa)! I also love the pump-style dispenser, so I don't make a greasy mess every time I use it — which, from now on, is gonna be pretty much all the time. I'm sooo excited to wear swimsuits this summer without all the bumps and irritation!"

    Get it from Bushbalm for $26.

    4. A cleaning paste that's popular on TikTok and will save you so much time — it'll tackle stubborn stains on your stove, bathroom sink, kitchen tiles, and more messy surfaces at home. No more scrubbing and wiping for hours.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This all-purpose and vegan paste is great for removing rust, hard-water stains, grease, and more messes around home! To use, just apply it to a surface with a damp cloth, gently rub it in, rinse it off with water, and polish the area with a dry cloth.

    Promising review: "Found this product on TikTok. I don’t think I’ve ever seen value like I do this product! Literally use it on EVERYTHING! Kids and teens have dirt, grime, and grease on their walls? ...This will make it look like a new paint job. Baseboards need some love? A pea-size amount of this makes them look brand new. Need a shoe cleaner? PERFECT for sneakers. I could name a million more uses, but I can ASSURE you this is worth every penny. What’s more? You need so LITTLE of this product, it will last a VERY long time. Thank you, TikTok!" —Rachel in CLT

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    5. 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.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $5.95.

    6. 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 a four-pack).

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

    A customer review before and after photo of their tiled floor with dirty grouts and then completely white
    amazon.com

    Apply it to grout lines, let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes, and agitate the grout with a bristled brush to lift all the nasty gunk that's been there for way too long.

    Promising review: "We moved into our house a year ago and I’ve been on a quest to clean the grout next to the stove ever since then. I’ve tried everything — store products, DIY solutions, Pinterest recommendations, you name it. As a last resort I got this and holy cow! I left it on for three minutes as a spot test at first and I could already see a huge difference. I then did two more rounds letting it sit for five minutes each. The scent's not bad, it was fine if I had the window open, it was just being down close to it that got me. Seriously, stop looking and buy this." —Britney Phillips

    Get a 32-ounce bottle from Amazon for $19.95.

    8. A pack of AirPod putty cleaners to carefully remove all the gross gunk from your AirPods. Gently press a flexible square into one of your AirPod speakers, peel it off, and you'll be amazed to see all the earwax it picks up! (Peep at the amazing results below to see just how much earwax and debris could be lurking on your headphones...🤢)

    amazon.com

    Cleaning tech gadgets (including AirPods) can be tricky, so use one of these putty cleaners instead of harsh cleaners or cloths to get the job done!

    See it in action on TikTok here

    Promising review: "I use my AirPods every single day to listen to music at work. I only use one AirPod just in case my boss needs my attention. I had noticed that I could barely hear anything through my AirPod, even though I had the volume all the way up. I saw this putty on a BuzzFeed article and so decided to order and test it. I’m writing this about two minutes after using it and I am amazed with how well it works! It got all the gunk out and the sound is amazing, I don’t need to have the volume up very much to be able to hear everything anymore. If you have literally any doubts about this products, forget them. This stuff works great and is a great price for the amount you get. You get 12 squares of putty; I used a whole one to clean my AirPod, thought I suspect you could clean both AirPods with just one square." —Katelyn

    Get 24 from Amazon for $16.99 (also available in a 12-pack).

    9. And a pair of AirPod ear hooks because your AirPods are always falling out at the most inconvenient times (raise your hand if you've lost an AirPod while working out 😒). Slide these cushy hooks onto each AirPod and they'll stay in place.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "Overall works great. I do about 30 mins of running each day and after I started sweating, my AirPods would start slipping out and I'd have to adjust them back into my ears constantly. This product works great and holds them in. They won't stay super tight in your ear necessarily, but they only move out a little over time. The difference for me was adjusting once during my workout instead of every two minutes while running. Highly recommend if you're looking to keep your AirPods in your ears during workouts." —Chris W

    Get a pair from Amazon for $10.49.

    10. A cat carrier that's ~purrfect~ for carrying your kitty and grooming them on the go. With an adjustable Velcro collar and Velcro ports, your feline can poke their head out and stay comfy while you take care of pet parent duties. Plus, it'll be less of a hassle to trim their nails or brush them.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This bag can accommodate kitties who weigh 5 to 9 pounds and measure 14 inches or less from the top of their head to the bottom of their tail. It also has a comfy shoulder strap for you, so you don't have to carry them with your hands!

    Promising review: "I was skeptical like many others, but this bag is magical, I think! The cats fought over who got to sit/sleep on it straight out of the package, and they don't mind being zipped up in it at all! I used it two days ago to cut their nails — first time I was able to cut them by myself! There are two Velcro slots at the front on each side for their paws to come out. This morning, I used the bag to apply medicine to their ears by myself...super easy! It's made of a heavyweight-type fabric that keeps their feet secure so they don't run away, and protects you from their sharp nails. No, it doesn't protect you from biting, but I don't know of anything reasonable that does. But for normal cats, who just don't like to be 'fiddled' with, this bag is a godsend. I highly recommend it!" —K. Zainea

    Get it from Amazon for $35.60+ (available in sizes XS–XL and eight colors).

    11. A disposer foaming cleanser because when was the last time you ~actually~ cleaned out lingering eggshell bits and other slime from your kitchen garbage disposal without taking an hour? It's easy to use and looks like a mini volcano erupting from your sink. Your stinky drain will thank you for this foamy (and super-clean) treatment.

    youtube.com

    Promising review: "Holy cow, I didn't realize how easy and quick it was to clean a garbage disposal until I bought this product! Typically, in my naive thinking, I'd just use vinegar and baking soda down the drain and call it good. Little did I know that there was an actual cleaning product available until I stumbled across it through a BuzzFeed article. So of course, I had to try it. Very simple instructions, literally takes five minutes and some hot water and VOILÀ! you have a clean, no-longer-stinky garbage disposal. The smaller bag lasted me about six weeks, as I didn't feel the need the clean the disposal weekly like the packaging recommended. But let me say that anytime I got a whiff of an odor, all I did was drop one of those packs in the disposal and the smell was GONE! Plus the blue foam bubbling through the sink was amusing to watch ;-). Worth every penny!!" —VadersGirl

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $3.98.

    12. A Blume acne oil that'll help reduce face breakouts without sacrificing hydration. Packed with blue tansy, black cumin seed, rose hip, and tamanu oils, this skin treatment helps reduce the appearance of acne scars and can act as a shield against future pimples.

    13. A back shaver for the baby hairs that are nearly impossible to get rid of on your back. You'll feel like you're mowing the lawn, except said lawn is all the peach fuzzies you'll finally say buh-bye to after this gadget removes them from your upper and lower back.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This back shaver is designed to remove both dry and wet hair from hard-to-reach areas of your back, including between the shoulder blades and the lower back. It also comes with two removable blades that are easy to slide in and out.

    Promising review: "This is absolutely game changing. I have tried different methods of shaving my body hair for years, with varying degrees of success and usually a ton of headache. Razors don't reach, trimmers cut your skin and don't reach, girlfriend shouldn't have to do it, it was all a total pain, literally and figuratively. This reached every spot on my back, and it looks as good as if I used a regular razor. I even used it to shave the hair on my triceps with no problem. Easy to clean it. Blades are easy to remove and put back in. The head comes off easily. This is the best men's grooming device for guys with body hair, period! I can have a clean-shaven back and body whenever I want. I wish I could kiss the guys that invented this thing. Bravo!" —Amazon customer

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95+ (available in two designs).

    14. A set of thick velvet slipcovers that'll instantly turn your 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. 😲

    This set also comes with nonslip straps that'll prevent your "seats" from shifting out of place. It's also available in a bunch of colors, in case you want to do a total makeover, as shown in the review picture above.

    Promising review: "I could not believe the cover in the plastic bag would fit my huge couch but I pushed ahead. The stretch is unbelievable. Then the frosting was IT IS VELVET. Plush, soft, and holds tight. The downside for me is I wish I had purchased a light blue rather than teal." —Ann Correll

    Get it from Amazon for $65.49+ (available in two sizes and six colors).

    15. An easy-to-use nose wax kit because you're ready to bid farewell to the tiny hairs taking up residence in your nostrils.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    The waxing kit comes with 100 grams of nose wax beads, 30 wax applicators, 10 mustache protectors, 15 paper cups, and a measuring cup!

    Promising review: "I highly recommend this product. The instructions were super easy to follow and it worked perfectly! I was a little nervous to pull the sticks out once the two minutes were up, however it didn't even hurt. I expected it to hurt momentarily and my eyes to water, but neither was true! If you wanna get rid of them pesky nose hairs...snag this product!!!" —Julie J.

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    16. An all-natural oven scrub for your oven that's been dirty for a long time. Pumice stone and essential oils help remove grime from oven racks and the interior glass panel of your oven door. You'll be glad that pie goo from three weeks ago is finally gone with a quick (and seamless) cleaning session.

    Everneat/Etsy

    Apply the scrub to dirty oven surfaces, scour each area with a metallic or scoring sponge, then wipe with a damp microfiber cloth, that's it!

    Everneat is a small business based in Fairfield, Connecticut, that sells natural cleaning essentials.

    Promising review: "Finally tackled the rings on our stove top with this scrub and a reusable paper towel (as I was worried about using a scourer on an easily scratched surface) and the rings came right off! These are those 'oh, crap, the pot boiled over' rings that I ignored that lead to my stove top looking a bit crusty. The oven scrub ate them right off and left my oven and stove top looking great." —Jessie Bono

    Get it from Everneat on Etsy for $19.99+ (available in a glass or plastic jar).

    17. A Denman Hair Brush so helpful for your hair routine because it detangles *and* defines curls. It has rows of sculpted nylon pins that'll work through knots and shape ringlets, leaving you with softer and smoother strands.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Here's how to use the brush: Brush it through wet hair in an outward motion and twist it to shape curls. You can also use it while blow-drying your hair to make the styling process a little easier.

    Check it out on TikTok here.

    Promising review: "Definitely works wonders for my hair! I’ve always had curly hair and only for the last few years have I really started embracing them. I still have a lot to learn about having curly hair, but getting the Denman brush has brought me closer to perfect curls! Definitely have to watch videos (I saw a TikTok haha) for styling tips." —Carla Castelan

    Get it from Amazon for $21.95 (available in three styles and six colors).

    Amazon, amazon.com

    This set comes with an extra-large cube, large cube, medium cube, small cube, roomy shoe bag, and a laundry bag for dirty clothes!

    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

    Get a six-piece set from Amazon for $24.99 (available in 10 colors).

    19. Reusable toe covers with over 2,000 positive reviews for a reason: These babies help protect blisters, corns, and ingrown toenails while they heal. You won't have to expose your toes or deal with flimsy bandages during the process.

    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).

    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

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

    Kayla Boyd / BuzzFeed

    BuzzFeed editor Kayla Boyd swears by this mascara and said: "As someone who isn't a big fan of false lashes (the glue irritates my eyes and I'm terrible at applying them) this budget-friendly holy grail does the trick for both lengthening and volumizing my lashes. It uses a conic shape fiber brush to help the mascara apply evenly without getting too clumpy. Plus, it's cruelty-free!" Peep more deets in her full Essence Lash Princess mascara review.

    Promising review: "I have read that this mascara is wonderful, so I wanted to give it a try. I have very very short eye lashes so I have tried so many mascaras over the years that I have lost count. Boy, I was very surprised to find out that this is one of the best for volume, it went on so well, very easy to use, and the value you do get a lot for your money. I had to put three coats on, but it looks really nice with the volume and it looked like I have false eyelashes on. The color I chose was the dark black and it’s very dark and rich just what I wanted with no smudges, I highly recommend this you will be very satisfied!" —Amazon Customer

    Allison Faccenda / BuzzFeed

    BuzzFeed writer Ali Faccenda loves this mascara and said: "Over the years I've noticed my lashes falling out and they're not as voluminous and long as they once were (*cries*). This mascara primer has changed all of that. I use it in tandem with the Thrive Causemetics mascara for a dynamic duo that hasn't failed me yet. The primer base adds a noticeable amount of fibers to thicken my thin lashes, which gives me a full-lash look." Read more of her L'Oréal Voluminous Primer Mascara review (it's #10).

    Promising review: "My rug has been a pain ever since I got it. The backing did not have any grip and between that and a 100-lb boxer, my rug always ended up in a ball blocking my front door. Those store-bought rug grippers were like laying Swiss cheese underneath. It was worthless. No matter how many of those grips I applied, my dog and the rug would always fly down the hall in a disorganized mess. But these Gorilla Grips are amazing. They are so easy to install and the adhesion actually works. It’s easy to remove and replace them as well. It sticks to my wood floor like Gorilla Glue and my dog can no longer go rug surfing through my house. I will not longer use anything else." —Amazon Customer

I can't believe the price for what you get! Highly recommend." —Jamie H

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I am allergic to cats, so here I am with two cats who shed like crazy. Their hair is covering all the furniture. I have special pet covers on my bed to protect my comforter but I hate having to sleep under it since my cats sleep on my bed. I have tried so many cat hair remover brushes, gloves, sponges that never worked. I was ready to shave the cats and call it a day. Then along comes the ChomChom brush.

    "It not only has the lint roller but a bar that collects the hair. I love the little hairball container of the roller so I don't have to spend time cleaning off the lint brush. I can't believe this product works! I have an off-white couch and I didn't realize how much hair there was. After I used it, my couch looked lighter in color. I got my comforter cleaned off in minutes. It's a simple and inexpensive way to cure your pet hair woes." —Dondi

    amazon.com

    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

    After cleansing and moisturizing, warm a dime-size drop between your hands and gently blend it into your face. You'll see the cream shift from a green color to a beige color as you rub it in, resulting in less redness and a more even skin tone.

    Promising review: "This works so well to correct redness. I also love that it has an SPF! I will be purchasing the larger jar next time." —Sephora Customer

    This eight-piece set comes with one 4.6-cup medium container, 7.2-cup medium container, 11.3-cup large short container, one 18.1-cup large container, and four lids. 

    BuzzFeed editor Natalie Brown tested these containers — see above pictures! — and said: "On March 5, I put half of my fresh strawberries in the medium-sized container and left the other half in the clamshell container they came in from the store. And here they are 10 days later, on March 15! The berry I left in the original container's dehydrated and blemished, with wrinkled, crunchy leaves. But the produce-saver strawb's as fresh as it was on day one!" Read more of her Rubbermaid FreshWorks food storage containers review.

    Reviewers also swear by these storage containers that helped keep their fruits and veggies fresh:

    "I wish I would have gotten these sooner. I bought strawberries for my children, and then I forgot about them. I found them in the back of the refrigerator almost TWO WEEKS later, and they were still good. The real miracle is how long it keeps zucchini. Zucchini starts to get mushy in the crisper drawer after just a few days. Again, these miracle containers have kept it fresh for close to two weeks now." —Laura

    "The quality of fresh produce begins to degrade after two or three days, but I'm not willing to shop more than once a week. These Rubbermaid containers really solved that problem. I purchased fresh leaf lettuce and raspberries, rinsed them thoroughly, spun the lettuce dry, and placed the items in the food saver containers. Eight days later the lettuce is still fresh. The berries remained fresh for five days until they were all eaten. Over the years, I would hate to calculate how much money I've wasted throwing away wilted or spoiled lettuce and rotted berries. The savings from discarded produce will pay for these containers quickly." —M. Hughes

    33. A cool pill-removing, pumice-esque stone that'll help revive clothes you always wear. Brush this baby across your fave sweatshirts or sweaters if they're looking a little worn out from pills. 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.

    34. And a box of wart-removing pads so you can bid farewell to the annoying cauliflower-like warts on your fingers and toes. These medicated bandages can be used to treat finger and plantar warts.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Just apply one of these pads to the wart and repeat every two days until the wart is fully removed from the affected area! They're also cushioned *and* waterproof, so you won't have to worry about them feeling uncomfortable or getting wet during treatment.

    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.
