    Promising review: "I saw this little thing all over TikTok and everyone swore by it. To be honest, they’re right and I now swear by it. It’s perfectly soft and sturdy to massage the scalp.

    3. A portable charger you'll probably sing praises for, because it doesn't require any cords. When your phone battery is running low, plug it into the dock and it'll instantly charge it up.

    Note: This small gadget can charge an iPhone 8 1.5 times and an iPhone X one full time on a single charge.

    Promising review: "The holy grail of portable chargers!!! I was traveling to Disney for vacation, and knowing me I would drain my battery with just taking pictures alone. I wanted a portable battery but didn’t want to carry a cord either, so I was excited when I found this little baby! It does exactly as described, pretty color, and I get one full charge of battery for my phone. Get it you will not be disappointed!" —Meghan Doble

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in six colors).

    4. A Revlon dual dryer and brush that'll dry and style your hair at the same time. Its three heat settings will get to work on wet strands, while its rounded edges and an oval brush design increase volume and curl your ends.

I have thick hair, and this dries my hair in less than 15 minutes. PLUS, I don’t have to fuss with a straightener or a curling iron if I don’t want to!! It leaves my hair so soft and shiny and gives it SO MUCH VOLUME! I recommend this to ANYONE I talk to about it. Seriously, my favorite styling tool. Seriously, so in love." —Sydney

    Promising reviews: "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 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 longer than the RT. Very happy with my purchase and the price. Will definitely continue to buy." —chris

    "I love these makeup sponges. I am new to makeup and still learning, and these sponges are great for blending. I only use liquid concealer and foundation, and the makeup sponges blend my makeup products perfectly. They are a pretty good size, too. I use the pointy part for under my eyes and other hard-to-reach places." —Amazon Customer

    Promising reviews: "I love this TikTok clock. Here’s another 'TikTok/BuzzFeed brought me here' post. The clock is adorable and a modern thin clock that doesn’t look cheap, even though it is." —Tanitha Gaither

    "I love this clock it looks very nice. I like that the numbers are very easy to read and it gives you the option if you want to use the 12-hour feature or the 24-hour feature. I also like that it has ports on the side so that I can charge up my phone etc. You can also control the brightness on it. I'm a type of person that likes to sleep in a room that's pitch black usually, but with the brightness feature, I can find a setting that's not going to interfere with my sleep or agitate me in the night. —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $21.59 (available in seven colors).

    Promising review: "So excited for this sprayer. It's one of those random buys that you realize is gonna be your new favorite. Sprays my oil beautifully and is so easy to clean/fill.

    12. 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...🤢)

    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 in 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 product, 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 a 24-pack from Amazon for $15.99.

    13. 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.

    Promising review: "The best solution ever. I have an awkward shaped ear canal and struggle to find earbuds that I like and that are comfy, and I LOVE my AirPods but they don’t fit snug enough for me to work out in them (one actually flew off on the treadmill and I stopped wearing them to the gym since then) but these hooks are AMAZING. They are so comfortable you don’t even notice they’re there and it provides the perfect amount of security for running/jumping around. So happy I tried these out. If you’re thinking of buying them just do it." —Larissa

    Get a pair from Amazon for $9.99.

    14. A container of "Museum Gel" that'll come in handy when your feline decides to climb on your coffee table or bookshelf where you keep delicate collectibles. It'll securely hold crystal and glass objects in place, so they don't get knocked down.

    15. A Yonanas fruit soft-serve maker so you can turn bananas, berries, and mangos into a yummy frozen treat.

    Promising review: "I saw one of these in action at a friends house like five years ago and thought it was just a made up memory, because making ice cream out of solely frozen fruit seems wild. But when I saw a TikTok about it I immediately went to Amazon and bought it. Literally this was the BEST decision of my life. I cannot believe still how amazing this thing is! It makes the creamiest, best tasting fruit ice cream ever. It’s easy to take apart and clean, and super easy to use." —DMCKAY

    16. An anti-chafe balm to keep your body safe from skin rubbing issues like redness and irritation that may happen after exercising. Your thighs, arms, and neck will feel a little better after using this formula.

    Promising review: "This stuff really is awesome. It really works and I don't know where it has been all my life. I started looking for something for thigh chafing after running into a few issues (not fun). It is super easy to use, just slide it on like you'd use deodorant." —Amazon Customer

    18. An acupressure mat and pillow set because your bod is so dang tight after exercising at the gym or sitting at a desk. It can help reduce tension, thanks to over 7,000 (!!!) small acupressure points that target muscles. Lay down on both for 10 to 30 minutes if you need a little relief.

    Promising review: "Honestly a friend sent me a TikTok video on this item. I was like for $20 I'll try it, and oh my god, I have lower back problems and 20 minutes lying on this spiking mat helped relieve pressure. I work remotely and am sitting down for 8 to 10 hours a day, so tension builds up and this totally worked. So many ways to try using the mat." —Arlington Ink

    Get it from Amazon for $25.30+ (available in 14 colors).

    19. A portable no-install door lock for additional security at home and on the road. This tool stays in place and works with multiple doors, whether you're staying in your bedroom or a hotel room. It's also easy to install and remove (no nails required).

    Promising review: "I brought this because I saw it on TikTok! I trust this more than the lock on my door (that my super has access to). I would recommend you buy this for traveling solo also and even for your bedroom door. I use this with a security bar also." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.95.

    20. A set of scrunchies with a discreet zipper that'll safely stash keys, lip balm, money, and other small essentials. You'll probably feel so much better knowing that they won't slip out of a pocket and get lost while you're out and about.

I didn’t have any issues with the zipper. I wore it on my wrist all the time and put money/lip balm inside it. It worked great during my vacation. This would be perfect to stash some things inside!" —Jessica Sandoval
