    A reviewer's TV: hazier and too bright in some places before, and sharper and clearer with the backlighting after
    amazon.com

    It's so easy to apply too: dust, wipe clean, and dry the back of your TV, lay out and trim the strip, peel off the tape, stick it onto your TV, and connect the USB attached to it to your TV.

    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 though 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 eye strain but I have never really had a problem with that so I can't comment on that." —Rgd18

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in eight sizes and styles).

    2. A Saucemoto Dip Clip so you can eat nuggets and fries without making a mess in the car. This baby easily clips onto a car vent and securely holds sauce containers and packets. The days of ketchup dripping into your lap when you drive are over.

    Drive a compact, SUV, or pickup truck? No problem, because this dipper has a universal mount that moves and locks into 16 positions to accommodate different car vent sizes.

    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

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in four colors and in packs of 4, 6, and 10.)

    Promising review: "I just tried these last weekend at an outdoor wedding with an indoor reception. They were amazing! I kept them on all night. First, I walked outside in thick grass, and the wedding photos were taken in a mushy grassy area. I didn't sink even a little bit. It was fantastic. My heels were fabulous. I then decided to leave them on for the rest of the night since they made my heels more stable and comfortable. So glad I tried them. I was showing them off to the other ladies, and everyone loved the look of them." —J. L. Dossey

    Get a pair on Amazon for $9.99 (available in four sizes).

    Jasmin Sandal/BuzzFeed, amazon.com

    BuzzFeed writer Jasmin Sandal loves these masks and said: "I decided to put these golden gems to the test after coming off of a red-eye flight with practically no sleep. After cooling them off in the fridge (which is what was suggested on the packet), I applied them to my purpley, puffy eyes, and...w-o-w. Not only did I feel like I was receiving some kind of royal treatment (because, gold), but after 20 minutes, my under-eyes appeared brighter and any fine lines that were once lingering had vanished! After wearing these I didn't feel compelled to apply concealer either, which is usually my go-to to disguise dark circles — and I even felt confident enough to go bare-faced for the rest of the day."

Boy Brow is perfect! It brushes on easily and gives a very natural appearance, perfectly darkened and thickened brows. Add the semi-matt, but not dry, perfect hint of color lippy and the finish was easy and light." —Glossier Customer

    Get it from Glossier for $30.

    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).

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I never write reviews but I’m amazed by this product. I saw it on TikTok and I usually get bit by mosquitos a lot during the summer so I thought I would try it. After a few suctions it was like the mosquito bite was never there." —Ryan

    Promising review: "Amazing! This was my first time using this product and it sure won't be my last. I used it today for the first time and my hair feels so nourished. I have used other acv rinses that have left my hair stripped, but not this. Not only does my scalp feel clean, but my hair underneath my crochet is so soft. I cant stop touching my roots. A little goes a long way. I would most definitely repurchase!" —Girl+Hair Customer

    Reviewer's socked feed on the textured wood roller
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Seemed kind of counterintuitive to put my poor tender feet on hard wood with ridges and knobs on it, but by starting gently and working up to more pressure, this gives marvelous relief to sore, tired feet. Usually, those first few steps in the morning are the most painful. This morning, I did the TheraFlow Roller for just a minute or so (gently) and those first steps were much less painful. I like the idea that it is treating my entire body at the same time through the reflexology points." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $18.95.

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

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love it! It's given me a lot more drawer space, and cut the time spent doing laundry in half. Way more durable than the DIY ones made of cardboard that are floating around on the internet, and well worth the money. Added bonus: My 8-year-old actually likes folding her own clothes now!" —Shelbi

Beautifully done work, thank you!" —Etsy Customer

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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

    Promising review: "My kids loved sliding around the house helping me with cleaning the floors! I sprayed a little floor cleaner down, put on some fun music and off we all went! It was a dance party that doubled as a house cleaning! Need to get a smaller size for my youngest, but other than that they were perfect! Highly recommended to help break up the monotony of housework." —A Winslow

    amazon.com

    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

    This tool is also dishwasher-safe, so it'll be easy to clean up after meal prep.

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my life? I love this gadget! It’s so simple. Trust me...if you cut tomatoes in half, just do it!! It’s so easy to use. You do need to pretty much fill it up; you can’t just put three or four tomatoes in. Also, don’t press too hard, just lightly rest your hand on top and use a VERY sharp knife for best results. If your knife is dull this will not work! And if you cut raw chicken breasts in half, buy two, because you can use one for that as well!! Just make sure you label it 'raw chicken' and only use it for that." —Leah

    amazon.com, amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Love, love, love! Did the trick! There is a reason this thing has such good reviews! You will not regret this purchase! It’s basically a cheese grater for your feet! Just soak your feet in warm water for 20 mins. If you want to get fancy with it, add epsom salt, bubble bath and/or ACV (apple cider vinegar) to the warm water (I added all of them). After the soak, get to work with your foot file! Make sure you put on lotion after your dry your feet off. Your feet will be smooth and awesome! Bye-bye crusty feet!" —IdRatherBeAtTheBeach🏝

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    31. A honeycomb-textured cat litter mat because your fluff ball loves to leave a trail of litter around the house that's hard to sweep up. This double-layer mat catches loose litter as they climb in and out of their box, sparing you from a lengthy (and stinky) cleaning session. 

    Promising review: "Finally, no more kitty litter on the floor. Well, hardly any. I'd say it keeps 99% of the litter off the floor, which is a huge improvement! And for those who asked about, or mentioned that cats didn't like stepping on the mat, here's proof that my cat loves it. He lays on it, sleeps on it, grooms himself on it, and launches attacks against his brother from it. No problem there. I recommend this litter box mat to anyone who, like me, hates stepping on (usually barefoot) the hard pieces of litter and constantly cleaning it up." —TX Reader - Reviewer

    Promising review: "I bought this item for a hiking/camping trip in the Western Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and did it work amazingly! It is an advantage to carry this around with you instead of bottles of water or a hydration pack. I was not afraid at one second to stick this into a random creek we came across and start to drink. The initial drink was a little tough. (Just need to get the water through the filter.) But I would rather it be like that, so I know that the filter is doing its job. After that, the rest of the sips were easy." —Gadde15

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

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "These have blown me away. After getting a new pair of boots, I was having issues with the ease of getting my feet in/out without drastically adjusting the entire boot's lace tension each time. With these, I can easily squeeze my feet in/out when needed, and I never have to adjust the tension. They're stretchy enough to both hold my feet snugly, AND have enough stretch to allow my feet out when I try to get them off. The Lock Laces make the entire boot feel more comfortable, with good support all around, without the rigidity and pressure points." —John C

    Promising review: "This storage tower is awesome and such a space-saver. I live in a small apartment with little cabinet space, so I used this tower for my spices right in between my stove and refrigerator. It was also the easiest thing to assemble (no tools required)!" —S.J.

    Get it from Amazon for $21.10 (available in black and white).

    Promising review: "LOVE THIS! If you’re in the market for a super cute and sturdy protection for your AirPods Pro, this is it! The silicone material is shock-absorbent and smooth. The case comes with a double stick adhesive you can apply at the top of the case so the top portion can stay in place. It says it’s optional, but I applied it anyway and it seems to work." —Mia

    Promising review: "I love this thing! It got delivered yesterday. Earlier than expected and it's perfect for my home office setup. I work remotely and long hours so have a hard time getting out. I did over 2 miles yesterday and am already on it this morning. Highly recommend and easy to set up. Literally, take it out of the box, plug in, and use the remote." —Allison K. Hughes

    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 such LITTLE of this product, it will last a VERY long time. Thank you, TikTok!" —Rachel in CLT

    Promising review: "I bought these straws because I am very conscious of the amount of waste I create and try to do my best to minimize it. I refused to buy a big pack of plastic straws just to throw them away and let them end up in a sea turtle's nose or something. I just got these but I can already tell I love them. I love that they give you multiple different sizes, and they also include two cleaning brushes which makes cleaning them a breeze. I also just put them in the dishwasher if I'm feeling lazy. Great straws for the environmentally conscious!" —Kimberly
