    1. A pack of Crest 3D whitening strips that'll help you go from coffee-stained teeth to pearly whites in a number of weeks!,

    Promising review: "Highly recommended!!!! I am stunned by the results of this product!! I really wanted to whiten my teeth but professional treatments are so expensive. I decided to go ahead and give this a try. I used exactly as directed every day for the full 20 days, and my husband kept telling me how white my teeth were getting. It's hard to tell when you look in the mirror every day, but I knew there was improvement. Then, I looked at the 'before' and 'after' photos and I was amazed. Love this product!!!" —beaufam

    2. A set of Avarelle acne cover patches so you can get the gunk out of your face, heal breakouts, and get satisfying before and after shots of your lovely face.,

    Promising review: "I’ve tried so many brands of pimple spots, and these are hands-down the best on the market. I’m a performer at Walt Disney World, and a clear complexion is required. Last night, I put these on a few acne problems (a small cyst, a Whitehead, and a pimple I shouldn’t have picked and has been a bump for about three weeks now.) I just woke up and am writing this review in disbelief. THEY'RE FLAT! Gone! All of them! I could cry I’m so happy. The packaging is also ideal, because it allows you to conveniently and easily peel the stickers off without stretching them out or folding them back on themselves. Do yourself and your complexion a huge favor! Have these on hand for a stubborn zit when you really need help. Make sure you apply them to completely clean and dry skin." —Caitlyn

    3. A stainless steel cleaner ready to make your fridge, dishwasher, and oven shine like new. It'll get rid of fingerprints and give you a streak-free finish.

    Promising review: "I finally purchased a beautiful stainless-steel refrigerator. Unfortunately, after the delivery guys left, I noticed marks on the front doors left by packing tape. I was unable to wash off the marks. In addition, I noticed fingerprint marks almost every time I opened the refrigerator which, for the most part, would not come off. I used this on the refrigerator as soon as it arrived and was amazed at how easily the marks came off. Extra bonus: No new fingerprints since my first application a week ago! It really works!" —Tinkerbell

    4. A pumice cleaning stone that'll get rid of hard-water stains so the toilet actually comes out clean the next time you scrub it.

    a before and after of a dirty to clean toilet bowl

    Fret not, its material is specially made to avoid scratching. Plus the heavy-duty plastic handle protects your hands while you clean because...yuck.

    Promising review: "I'm so embarrassed to show how disgusting my toilets have been, but it's worth it for me to help anyone who has suffered as I have. We built our house and have lived in it 33 years. We dug a well and the water was beautiful, until air hit it. The copper, iron, and lime are all so high the chart doesn't even go that high. We have spent thousands on a huge filter that filters all the water coming into the house from the well. My toilets have been disgusting to me, though clean (as clean as I can get them). This pumice stone — HOLY MOLY — my toilets are clean!!!!! I am totally amazed. It took about 30 minutes on each one. The stains are gone. THEY ARE GONE!!!!!!" —Libby Nance

    In addition to vitamin C, it also has skin-saving ingredients like vitamin E, witch hazel, and botanical hyaluronic acid. It improves the health of your skin overall, so it can also help with acne and other blemishes.

    Promising review: "The results are unbelievable. With or without makeup, my skin is bright, smooth and my spots are disappearing. One other result I am sure a number of people have not noticed is that your palms get softer too, I guess the residue on the palms makes it soft and supple."—Mayowa O.

    6. A squeegee broom for ridding your home of pet hair once and for all. It works just as well on carpet as it does on tile!

    An image showing how much hair has been swept up

    Promising review: "This is 1,000% worth it y'all! I read about this on BuzzFeed and had it on my wish list for a few weeks. When our 9-month-old black lab came back from the trainer, I knew it was time to get something to help the mountains of hair. I got this in today and tried it out. I didn't think it would get much. I swept last night. Oh my lawd. The hair it picked up was ridiculous! If you have pets and hardwood floors, you need this. Life-changing! So glad I bought this!" —Katherine Burch

    My coworker swears by this broom for removing all her hairs that are embedded in the carpet. Read her Evriholder FURemover broom review to see all the hair it unearthed from her rug.

    7. A tea bag organizer that'll free up lots of counter space and make your tea time a stress-free experience.

    This organizer can hold approximately 100 tea bags.

    Promising review: "I love tea. In fact, I don't drink coffee so I buy a lot of varieties of tea and then put it in my cabinet and promptly forget them. I finally saw this product and bought it to help organize them. Who knew I had so many different teas! I totally forgot I had most of them. Now I have a neat display of my teas and can easily choose what tea I am in the mood for without taking things out of my cupboard. It looks great on my countertop near my fridge and doesn't take a lot of room. Love it. It's my new favorite thing. Worth every penny. Now I think I need another one." —Kasia K

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    8. A portable bug bite suction tool to take the itch and swell out of bug bites so you can move on with your life without all the discomfort.


    The suction can be pretty strong so use caution and try a small amount of suction first and work your way up if necessary.

    Promising review: "I am a magnet for bites of all kinds and carry topical and medicines with me at all times — so I figured this would be a good product to see if it really works. I woke up with a bug bite on my arm so I used this little tool (three times per the instructions) — Immediately after I used it, it stopped itching! And less than 24 hours later the bump/bite gone! There is a very faint red mark from using the thing, but a small price to pay IMO. Bottom line: it’s awesome. I’m carrying it with me everywhere!" —Rebecca

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    9. A bottle of hair-building fibers so you can make thinning parts of your hair look thick and full instantly. These Keratin-packed fibers intertwine with your existing hair to help cover your scalp and make your strands appear thicker.

    A reviewer's before and after photo of them using the hair-building fibers to cover some bald spots

    They're sweat-, wind-, and rain-resistant, but come out in your next shampoo. Just shake into the thinning area, and pat your hair to disperse.

    Promising review: "I was hesitant to try this, and I'm hoping my review will help someone else who feels the same way. I have alopecia areata, which causes circles or ovals of hair to fall out all at once. The hair fibers are a godsend. I use the dark brown with the spray applicator. You'd be able to see if you got up close to look, and it works better where there's some hair than areas that are completely bare, but even on bare patches its much better. I would definitely recommend this for anyone, any age, with thinning hair or bald patches." —Christine Wilson

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95 (available in nine colors).

    10. A bottle of curl cream-gel that'll help your curls retain their moisture so that they hold their shape like never before!

    A before and after photo showing more defined curls after using the product

    Promising review: "Like many of the people who have posted reviews, I've tried every curl cream in the book, from high end to low end. I can't remember how I stumbled across this product but it was the reviews that made me want to give it a try. Thank goodness I did and that's why I'm writing this review. This product is amazing. I have waist-length wavy/curly red hair and I only have to use two pumps of the product to coat all my hair. My curls are wonderfully moisturized and shaped with absolutely ZERO greasy or crunchy feel. A little goes a long way. Highly recommend this!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $22.

    11. A pet hair remover roller to make the couch look like it's *not* the cat's favorite place to nap.

    Added bonus! This product doesn't use sticky adhesive paper. The roller can be reused over and over again because of its high quality bristles that grab the hair like a brush!

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my crazy cat-loving life? Sticky rollers work fine for clothes but this is the only product that has ever COMPLETELY removed all the cat hair from my bed. I have a long-haired 20-lb. tabby and if you run your hands up his back a few times and fling the hair everywhere, it looks like it's snowing – he never stops shedding no matter what I do. After using the ChomChom, I can put on a black dress and roll around on my bed and not get a single hair on me. It's absolutely amazing. Everyone is getting one for Christmas, even if they don't have a pet. I don't care; it's THAT good." —Stephanie

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    12. O'Keefe's Working Hands cream for anyone who has dry, cracked, over-worked or over-washed hands in need of some serious TLC. Say goodbye to crusty fingers and calloused palms!

    Promising review: "Do you want to know how a lumberjack's hands feel after he's run his fingers through an angel's hair? USE THIS AND WONDER NO MORE. I've been using this stuff for a few weeks, and it's helped my hands out drastically. I work with weapons and with my hands regularly, and this is the first hand cream that I've used that I like. I'll be buying it again. I've gotten compliments about how soft my hands are." —Colt

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    13. A fabric defuzzer that just may save you from having to buy a new couch, with before and after results like these!

    Before photo of a couch leg that's pilling and an after photo of the same couch, which now looks brand new after using the shaver

    Promising review: "I don’t normally rave about things like this. I bought this on a whim in last attempts to save my favorite duvet cover. The pills had gotten to the point where it was seriously uncomfortable to sleep with them getting all up in my leg space. I thought I was going to have to get a new duvet cover entirely. Along came this lil baby. Not only is my duvet cover basically brand new, but I have found a new hobby. I’m depilling everything. Sweatshirts, leggings, blankets, socks, anything that looks like it needs some love. It does the job quickly and leaves everything looking fresh." —Dena Jensen

    14. A set of bedsheet suspenders to keep your fitted sheet from dragging on the floor or coming off the corners of your mattress every night.

    a before and after of the suspenders locking down a bed sheet

    Promising review: "Say goodbye to re arranging your fitted sheet every morning! My boyfriend sleeps like he’s rolling down a hill so every morning I would wake up to the scratchy feel of my mattress cover because my soft silk fitted sheet was all over the place. Thanks to these bed bands, our sheets stay put no matter what. The only way for your fitted sheet to come off is if you manually remove these first. I wish I would have bought this so much sooner." —Khalysee

    Get four bands from Amazon for $12.99.

    15. A bottle of Burt's Bees sunburn lotion because the pain of a bad sunburn and the damage it can do to your skin is no joke — reviewers say this miracle worker helps heal and prevents the dreaded sun burn skin peel.

    a before and after of a person's back becoming less red from a sunburn

    Two words: aloe and coconut! Those are the main two ingredients and with results like these, we have no choice but to stan.

    Promising review: "Best product ever for sunburns! No peeling or itching. Simply amazing! The photos are four days apart." —Carrie

    16. A bottle of nonabrasive, pre-mixed Bar Keepers Friend cleanser you'll want to rub on nearly everything in your house for a serious "like-new" shine.

    Two candle sticks side by side; one having been treated with the product and looking brand new and the other still rusted over

    Promising review: "My dishes are over 30 years old and it showed — there were scratches all over the surface. The dishwasher got them clean but did nothing for those marks from the flatware. A dollop of this cleanser and a few seconds rubbing, and they look nearly new!!" —vickyann

    Check out my colleague's Bar Keepers Friend review and see how she cleaned her entire apartment with it.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.59.

    17. A bottle of Pura D'or anti-thinning shampoo formulated with argan oil and biotin to give thinning hair the nourishment and support it needs to possibly grow in nice and thick. I am battling hair loss from a recent concussion and need to give this a try 👀.,

    Promising review: "About two years ago my hair started falling a lot and I became incredibly concerned. I was using expensive Sephora shampoos but it became worse. So I started researching and I learned about this product. Not only did my hair stop falling out but the conditioner made it soft and shiny. I naturally have frizzy and dull hair so it really did wonders to my hair and saved me from going bald. I highly recommend this product. It is a bit pricey but your investment is worth it." —Maryam

    18. A suede and leather brush cleaner so you can ensure the money spent on your leather/suede shoes was worth it — just brush this product on and they'll look as good as the day you bought them!

    Promising review: "I am very impressed with this product. I was new to suede shoes and instantly regretted buying gray colored shoes once I got them dirty. Luckily I found this lovely thing. Very easy to use, straightforward packet comes with it that tells you which sides to use and when. I would definitely recommend this since you invest so much in those shoes you might as well keep them nice and clean!" —Celeste

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    19. A set of Affresh dishwasher cleaning tablets that'll be there for you when it feels like the stinky dishwasher is making your dishes well, dirtier rather than clean. These tablets will take the funk right out of your dishwasher.

    Use these once a month to penetrate, dissolve, and remove odor-causing buildup.

    Promising review: "This works extremely well. We haven't done any cleaning on our dishwasher in five years, and the sliding dish trays were tough to pull out or push in, there was detergent buildup all over the inside, and there was a milky film on all our cups. I bought Affresh, ran the dishwasher with two tablets while it was empty, and the difference was astounding. There was still some buildup and I figured it would require another cycle, so I popped another two tablets in, ran the machine a second time, and now it looks and sounds brand new. No more film on the glasses, no more dirty dishes from clogged sprayers, no more odors, no more buildup around the door seals. I'm going to be buying Affresh from now on, and hopefully it will extend the life of my dishwasher." —Martoune

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    20. A stick jewelry cleaner you'll use to polish up all your rings, gems, and favorite pieces of jewelry., Amazon

    The stick is a twist-to-dispense pen that'll deliver a cleansing solution through the center of the bristles. The formula consists of micro-fine cleansers and polishing agents combined with a polymer to make and keep your gems shiny and new.

    Promising review: "If I could give this 10 stars I would!!! I'm a little of a fanatic when it comes to keeping my jewelry clean, especially my wedding set. I tried this product on my diamonds, Swarovski crystals, and Brighton jewelry and the results are nothing less than amazing!!! This restored one of my Swarovski rings that I have not worn in years due to the cloudy color to a sparkling brilliance just like the first day I bought it!! I cannot recommend this product enough!!! I just ordered additional wands so I don't run out!!! Home run, Amazon!" —Kristina B.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.36.

    21. A set of microfiber makeup remover cloths designed to take a full face of makeup off with just water! Don't be like me and stain your pillowcases with mascara because you were too sleepy to deal with getting it off — these clothes make it easy!

    a reviewer using the product to remove makeup

    As if that wasn't easy enough, these are also machine washable so you can use them again and again!

    Promising review: "I was skeptical of these, but now I'm pretty sure they're what Mulan's outfit was made of when she wiped her makeup off on her sleeve in the movie. Even totally dry, they do a pretty impressive job of taking off all my makeup (including waterproof eyeliner and mascara) in a couple swipes. I like to use a little micellar water to make my skin feel a little cleaner. It's nice not to burn through so many cotton pads." —RachelM

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $5.49.

    22. A double-sided edge brush for gently laying down and shaping your edges. Reviewers swear by it working better than a toothbrush could ever dream of.,

    Promising review: "I didn't see the point in buying an edge control brush with a comb attachment. I figured I could just go to the dollar store and get a soft bristle toothbrush and call it a day. Boy was I wrong! I brought this product on a whim due to the price. I'm glad I did. I will be buying another one for my daughter. I especially love the comb attachment. It makes swooping the tiniest baby hairs a breeze. The brush is a bit hard for my taste but it's gentle enough not to grab and rip out hair." —Tina

    Get it from Amazon for $2.49.

    23. A hair-finishing stick so you can tame fly-aways and look put-together in no time at all.

    Promising review: "I have super fine hair with lots of breakage. No matter how I put my hair up I have bad fly-aways. This stuff is great! So easy and it stays better and looks smoother than stiff hairspray." —Jill Stilfield

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98.

    24. A pack of 50 velvet hangers that'll take up less space in your closet and hold the shape of your clothes far better than their plastic counterparts.

    Promising review: "I needed to update my hangers and get rid of the plastic ones. I’m happy with the way they look and how they are much better for my clothes (not more weird bumps in sleeves). They also stay on way better than other ones!" —SC

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99 (available in nine colors).

    25. A pair of moisturizing gel heel sleeves to bring some much-needed healing to cracked and blistered heels. Just wear them overnight and check out the smooth results in the morning!, Amazon

    Promising reviews: "I have been having trouble with badly cracked heels and I have tried Vaseline in my socks overnight, but I would get hot and end up taking them off. These provided great breathability all night and in the morning, my cracked heels already looked a million times better. If you are looking for a product that softens your heels and starts working away at those dry, cracked areas immediately, I would recommend these." —Victor Farrell

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in three colors and two styles).

    26. A bottle of CND Essentials nail and cuticle oil to help you soothe and nourish dry and cracked cuticles.

    a before and after of broken nails next to healthier looking nails

    Each day, work the oil into your nails and cuticles and they will begin to grow and strengthen so you don't have to worry about weak nails anymore!

    Promising review: "I had peeling, weak nails for years. Tried everything. I bought this in February. This size bottle lasted a bit more than a month religiously applying it two to three times a day. I was really seeing great improvement so I bought another bottle in late March. By May, all the peeling had grown out and my nails were getting stronger every day. I then bought the big four-ounce refill bottle because I never want to run out of it again! Cannot recommend this stuff enough!" —Diana

    Get it from Amazon for $8.50.

    27. A foaming carpet shampoo that'll clean everything from car seats to carpet to the stains in your clothes.

    Promising review: "I would’ve been happy if this stuff worked half as well as the reviews made it seem. But holy cow, this fabric cleaner is incredible! I bought a '93 Jeep recently and the inside was pretty gross (check out the photos). The fabric upholstery looked like someone’s Pepsi had exploded everywhere, with dark drippy stains and spots all over the seats. After using this cleaner these seats looks amazing! It takes some work to really get in there and work a lather, but hoo boy is it worth it. Check out the 'before' and 'after' photos! I’m so pumped. This stuff is great! Definitely a lifelong customer now." —S. Wheeler

    Get it from Amazon for $6.11.

    28. And a portable dog paw cleaner so your pup can get in on the before and after fun, not to mention this product will stop muddy messes ~in their tracks~ before your floors suffer the consequence!

    Promising review: "Best. Thing. Ever. This product works like a charm. It gets the sand from between their pads, and is gentle enough that even my most stubborn pup tolerates it! I have a terrier/schnauzer that likes to dig, a mini golden doodle that is prissy about her paws, and a standard lab puppy that is still very fuzzy. We have a farm where it is extremely sandy and we stay in a travel trailer. The amount of sand they were tracking into the camper was driving me CRAZY. It takes me three minutes to clean and dry off all of their paws. Seriously the best purchase I have made!" —Rachel
