    Promising review: "I bought this product because wearing a face mask makes my glasses fog, even with the metal strip to form around the bridge of my nose. It works all day with only one application, unless I have been doing a lot of activity, then I might have to re-apply. Just spray it on the clean lenses of your glasses then wipe dry with a clean dry lintless cloth, as simple as that. I was so impressed that I gave my second bottle to my team members for them to use. Delivery was fast. I highly recommend this product from this company. I would not hesitate to buy this again when I need more in the future." —Tonya Crippen

    Get them from 1Man1Garage on Etsy for $5+ (available as singles or in a five-pack). 

    4. A pack of handy dishwasher cleaning tablets that'll make de-funking the dishwasher an easy task. Just pop a tablet in with a cycle of dishes to keep your dishwasher looking (and smelling) brand-new!

    Promising review: "After using this product, I am happy to report that my $5 investment saved me over $500. I was ready to replace my dishwasher, due to super cloudy glasses, residue, and dishes just not getting clean. Then, I became aware that the water softener was no longer doing its job, so I had the rental company replace it. Dishwasher performance improved somewhat. I decided to do two more loads before deciding to purchase a new one. Then I saw a product test review for Affresh. I was ordering some stuff from Amazon anyway, so I added that to my order. When it came, I tossed one of the tablets into the bottom of the full machine, per instructions, and ran the regular cycle. I did not expect the results I got! The glassware that I thought was permanently etched and ruined came out like new. Same with cutlery. The difference is unbelievable. I will use this faithfully on a monthly basis, as recommended. I am amazed!" —Sheila

    5. An adorable and sparkly Sailor Moon purse with a magnetic closure to store your keys, phone, wallet, and much more in style.

    the white and blue Sailor Moon purse

    Promising review: "So cute. A lot bigger than I expected too. I usually don’t leave reviews but I was bummed I couldn’t find a review photo of the blue one anywhere so I just went for it. I love it, and am leaving a review for the next person who might be on the fence about the color." —Mia

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99 (available in five colors). 

    6. A two-sided tea stand that'll store many bags of tea so you can make your nightly cup of chamomile a totally stress-free experience.

    This stand holds 100 tea bags and features 12 slots.

    Promising review: "Do I really need a tea bag organizer? That's what I was thinking when I ordered this. And when I took it out of the box. And when I filled the first little bag holder. But, as the pile of empty boxes grew larger, I knew the answer was yes, I do need a tea bag organizer. I was using a whole shelf and a half of jumbled tea boxes which I had to sift through to look for a specific tea. In the end, I think this held about eight or nine boxes of tea bags (I crammed some of them). I am so happy that I got this!" —Sarah C.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    7. A breakfast sandwich maker for anyone who wants to be lured out of bed every morning by an easy-to-make bacon egg and cheese.


    Promising review: "The appliance comes with several recipe ideas and they're all great. This is an extremely versatile device, and it's great knowing you can make a quick breakfast sandwich with higher-quality ingredients than what's available at fast food places, and for a lot cheaper. Cleanup is easy as the center pieces slide out and are dishwasher-safe, and the top and bottom plates wipe clean very easily. If you're a sandwich-maker skeptic, I implore you to give this appliance a try." —Coketown

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    Promising review: "What an exciting, helpful item. It reminds me to hydrate and I use the blue tooth speaker to follow my workout DVD. It sounds like the instructor is in the room with me! It makes the work out fun with bright lighting. I love this product! I purchased blue and black. A must-have!! It does not leak. Great weight and quality." —Audra

    You'll be telling everyone in your life who hates rain boots all about these.

    Promising review: "I am so happy with this purchase! Wore these to a music festival that was muddy and rained later on during the night. My feet were completely dry and the shoes aren’t ruined, just used baby wipes to clean them off and they’re ready to go again. They look so similar to the all black high-top Converse sneakers. They fit very true to size, I’m usually a size 9.5 but I ordered a 10 and I believe going down a half size would’ve been better but I just wore a thicker sock to take care of that problem. I give 5 stars!" —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes 5–11 and 23 styles).

    BlissBalm is a slime shop on Etsy offering tons of cute and satisfying slimes.

    Promising review: "I like this slime a lot! I love how many different combinations of colors and scents there were to choose from. I ended up going with a light blue, cake batter scent. The order comes with a cute little cloud charm as described, but what I wasn't expecting was a small free sample of a different color/texture/scented slime which also came with an adorable cupcake charm! A care sheet, activator liquid, and some candy were also included." —Victoria Rosnack-Martin

    Kayla Suazo/BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "This is the best under-eye concealer ever. I am 67 years old and have tried them all. It blends nicely with my foundation and has never caked. The sponge applicator is soft and makes the application quick and easy. I will continue to use this product and hope, like many products I've used over the years, that it doesn't get discontinued." —Morty

    Promising review: "After using Lights, Camera, Lashes by Tarte for the past year, I got tired of breaking the bank over mascara. My sister suggested Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect and I IMMEDIATELY fell in love. It provides dramatic length and great volume. I can honestly say I can’t stop looking at my eyelashes in the mirror every single day because of how awesome they look. Also, it is very long wearing. I go from an eight-hour workday right to the gym and sweat like crazy...and this stuff doesn’t budge! I love it!!" —Carrie E Miller

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    15. A set of wireless Bluetooth earbuds with over 80,000 positive reviews to get you through workouts and work from home sessions with all the jams one could possibly need.

The earbuds are also sweatproof and waterproof so you can use them during workouts or runs, and they have a built-in mic so you can chat on the phone.

    Promising review: "The earbuds worked seamlessly and well out of the box. I use them while hiking the hills with my dogs and when working at my desk – I can still hear outside noises when needed for safety, but can listen to music without disturbing others. The earbuds are comfortable even during exercise, and they fit securely. Using the earbuds as a headset with my cellphone is easy as well. I do have to experiment with how they handle the Google assistant. The audio quality is at least stereo hi-fi, and the earbuds paired easily with both my phone and laptop. Wireless charging and having a large backup power source for the phone are terrific features." –Jawpar

    Get it from Amazon $33.99 (available in five colors).

    16. A S'well stainless-steel bottle so you always have an excellent water bottle on hand to get you through the seasons. This baby is capable of keeping cool drinks cool and hot drinks hot for hours on end, and they come in super cute styles for kiddos!

    a reviewer's before and after shot of the water bottle cleaning tablets

    Promising review: "I wasn't sure if this was a gimmick or not. Turns out it works really well. I have four metal thermos-like containers that are used to keep tea warm every day. Over time, the tea stained the insides and was very difficult to remove. I added one of these tablets to the container, filled it with hot water, and let it sit for a few hours. When I came back to rinse it out, I was literally amazed at how clean it was. I think it looked cleaner than when they were new. I called my wife over to show her, and she was equally impressed. Awesome product!" —Robert A Moreno II

I am light to medium with a yellow undertone and the colors that work amazing for me are Villa, Portrait, and Trench! Definitely worth the purchase if you’re thinking of buying." —Glossier Customer

    a reviewer photo of four of the heavy-duty bags in a shopping cart

    Promising review: "Perfect way to grocery shop! This system right here has changed the game. They are environmentally responsible and were even complimented in the store. The rods help you set these up with any cart, there is room for $200 worth of groceries, and they help organize and keep your cold items cold (even if your at the store for two+hours like I always seem to be). When the trip is over, you don’t have to worry about looking like the multi-bag monster, climbing the stairs, ringing out your hands with the heavy pounds of groceries. These bad boys sit on your shoulders and your hands are free to hold your keys when you get to your house, close and open car doors, handle your toddler, whatever you need!" —Tristan Emminger

    Promising review: "This clock is a miracle-worker. I dreaded all my early morning classes and going to work during the winter darkness.

I'm gonna have to learn to write again with my hand after surgery and these feel really nice to hold, and I love how thick they are. They write great and changing the ink seems pretty easy." —Fennec

    Promising review: "I live in Minnesota and it doesn’t matter how much water I drink or how much I moisturize, my skin is so dry. This was a lifesaver! I put it on right after I get out of the shower. Give a few minutes to soak in before getting dressed. My skin has never felt better." —Aubrie Reitz

    27. A set of blackout curtains honestly everyone needs in their home. They block out sunlight and dampen sound to help you get the peace and quiet you deserve.

    the blackout curtains in gray over a window

    I have these in my bedroom and they are great for when you need to shut out the noisy world to focus or unwind.

    Promising review: "We recently moved into a new home, which is about a mile or two from a major interstate. We didn't really realize how noisy it was until night time when all the trucks are going down it. There is just an open field between us and the highway. I was skeptical when I purchased these curtains that they would actually block very much sound. I know layering up bath towels can block almost all the sound, but its also really ugly. These curtains reduced the interstate noise to just a low hum. I was actually able to get some sleep last night." — John Samwore

It has several pockets perfect for small items like a toothbrush kit, phone chargers, snack bars, etc. Not only it’s big, durable. I also love the blush color. Can be used as an overnight bag, gym bag, a hospital bag, and all the kinds of bags you can think of when you’re in need of several pockets and cuteness in one." —MrsDuxSF

After one use my ring is absolutely breathtaking! I knew my ring got dirty now and then, simply from sweating and being outside in the elements. However, I never realized just how much dinge and schmutz marred my diamond until I cleaned it. It literally took my breath away with its fiery, dazzling brilliance!" —liltreeclimber

I was already pretty familiar with Korean skincare regimens and brands, and this was a great way to add more variety to my routine. The products are mostly full-size which is a fantastic value. The curation is also excellent; for example, in the winter I’ll get items ideal for hydrating and protecting dry/itchy skin, while the summer months will have more SPF and oil/clarifying products which are awesome. The box is mostly all skincare, which is great for me." —Kristen K.

    Reviewer's before-and-after photo of their scratched-up wooden chair and then new-looking, glossy chair

    Promising review: "This product exceeded expectations. Without even rubbing it in, it instantly refreshed the woodwork in my house, and in fact made the walnut stain look richer and better than it did when new. I tested it on a baseboard that was dusty and dirty (and which I should have cleaned first) and was surprised to see an immediate, excellent result. After cleaning the rest of the baseboard and then applying the orange oil, it all looks better than brand new and has not faded or evaporated over the last two weeks. The smell is pleasant and seems to improve the household mood. I highly recommend this product." —mmitchell

    Promising review: "This has been a great addition to our AirBnb fun. I haven't had to maintain a hot tub before, but so far it's surprisingly simple. For a fraction of the cost of a full-sized hot tub, you get a nice mini-vacation every night, and we use it that much. There are no jets for massage, but you get bubbles and fun. A drink holder is also useful for beers and margs (or water). I recommend this product." —Scott
