    34 Products That Reviewers Say Have "Changed My Life"

    Seriously, this list includes a spray that'll prevent your glasses from fogging up while wearing a mask.

    1. A cleaning pen, so all of your jewels (whether they're real or not) will be so sparkly everyone will wonder where you got 'em from.,

    This seemingly average little cleaning pen is filled with a high-performance formula that cleans jewelry like nothing I've ever experienced. It contains micro-fine cleansers, polishing agents, and a polymer that will make your gems so shiny they'll nearly blind you. I've used it on my diamond rings, but it also works wonders on my cubic zirconia earrings. Check out my full review of the Connoisseurs 1050 Diamond Dazzle Stick.

    Promising review: "My life has changed since I discovered this. I was previously using a toothbrush and found that it just wasn't getting all the gunk underneath my diamond. I have no idea what kind of magic is in this cleaning stick but my ring looks brand new after cleaning. The bristles are soft and firm at the same time, allowing you to get all around the prongs and underneath the stone." β€”Ay

    2. Anti-fog spray, perfect for anyone who wants to be able to both see *and* wear their mask at the same time.

    Promising review: "BEST ANTI-FOG SPRAY I'VE FOUND ANYWHERE!!! Working in a factory wearing a mask and safety glasses is a nightmare and this spray has totally changed my work life!! I tend to sweat a lot so I typically have to apply once or twice a day but has made my life so much better! If you're looking for anti fog spray, BUY THIS PRODUCT! You get an amazing deal and it will definitely do as described!!" β€”Jharr

    Get it from Amazon for $10.55+ (available in three sizes).

    3. Cruelty-free mascara you can count on to take your lashes to the next level β€” and then some., Amazon

    Promising review: "Life-changing. No, seriously. I was tired of mascara that clumped or flaked or was hard to get off and took my lashes with it. I tried cheap and expensive store brands. No luck. So, after reading reviews, I decided to take a risk and try this one. Oh my gosh. I'll never use another kind. Called my sister up and told her she had to buy this stuff! Doesn't smear, doesn't clump, stays on all day and gives my eyelashes the perfect balanced look β€”just thick and long enough. The no burning sensation is just an added bonus. I had no clue that my eyes were sensitive and just figured all mascara makes your eyes burn. Nope. This is my one and only kind, from now on!" β€”catherine moreno

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    4. A remote organizer, great for keeping your various remotes, clickers, channel changes (whatever you call it in your house) in check while looking chic.

    You're only human if you don't know where your TV remotes are... ever. This contraption is perfect for storing remotes, house phones (if ya' have one), and even your cell phone if you want to really focus on what you're watching.

    Promising review: "My bedside table has been a mess: three television remotes, one for the bed, and several pair of glasses. Every night I was rummaging in the dark trying to find the right remote and knocking my glasses on the floor. This item has changed my life. I put a piece of two-sided tape to hold it in place and now I can find exactly what I’m looking for, even in the dark!" β€”B. A. Thomasson

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in five colors).

    5. Rubbermaid's power scrubbing brush, for when you want to give your grout an all-inclusive spa treatment and bring it back to its squeaky-clean glory.

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed,

    Promising review: "The Power Scrubber is life-changing. I bought it several weeks ago with the intention of doing a deep clean 'sometime soon.' After an overflowing toilet incident, I had to make sure it got done right away. MY GROUT HAS NEVER BEEN CLEANER. I used some Comet and spray cleaner to get the job done, but this made short work for what typically requires 'a lot of elbow grease' and a spent toothbrush. With this tool, you really know you're getting in there and it's clean. I can't recommend this enough β€” I've already mentioned it to a neighbor, and a few friends, including one fanatical cleaner. We all agreed, it's such a necessary, perfect product." β€”Jojo

    Promising review: "Buying this knife sharpener has changed my life! I used to burn water, but now I'm on par with chefs like Gordon Ramsay! My knives are so sharp that I could cut off a finger and would not even notice. Paper thin tomatoes and onions for a tuna fish sandwich? Not a problem! Thank you KitchenIQ, my life will never be the same." β€”J.W.

    Amazon customers noted that the fit may vary based on your foot size.

    Promising review: "These are life-changing!! I typically don’t wear shoes around my house doing work and I usually am in terrible pain at the end of the day, these have absolutely changed that!

    It can also work on toilets, tiles, and shower doors β€” anything that's been affected by hard water!

    Promising review: "If you want the clear spotless glass door this is it. I’ve tried everything on the internet. Lemon, vinegar, car wash window cleaning product, etc. You name it. And nothing worked as I hoped. I can’t believe how long it took me to discover this product. What a life changing moment for me! I was so stressed out about the glass doors in my house β€” we have three bathrooms. It’s so hard to keep them looking and feeling clean. But now I know how. My shower looks brand-new again!" β€”Leonardzoo

    Get it from Amazon for $19.90.

    9. A pack of oven liners to protect the bottom of your oven from any overflow/oozing and let you continue on pretending you're competing on The Great British Baking Show worry-free.

    Promising review: "I HATED cleaning my oven because it was a such a pain. When the food that was stuck to the bottom would start to burn, then I would force myself to clean it. I would watch my husband cook pizza directly on the rack with NOTHING underneath and it would drive me bonkers knowing that I would have to clean the oven soon. Not anymore! These liners keep the bottom of my oven totally clean. And if something does drop, clean up is so easy! I've used another one in my toaster oven with the same results. So glad I was introduced to these oven liners. They really are life-changing!" β€”Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $13.99.

    10. Probelle Anti-Bite polish, because proper adults don't suck their thumbs or chew on their cuticles.


    Promising review: "I don't even realize when I am bitting my nails it has become such a normal behavior that the amount of times that I put my fingers in my mouth is crazy. This nail polish has stopped that! It is also super discreet so people don't know my secret weapon haha. The best part is that it does not wash away easy like the other products I bought in the past. You do not have to re-apply after hand washing it lasted three days on my nails that was such a great thing. The taste is horrible and I really had to stop the bitting, I am already seeing new growth! I am feeling so positive and excited about this product because it is really changing my life, finally will be able to have beautiful manicured nails like my friends!" β€”lbenn021

    11. A waterproof notepad that'll let you jot down that brilliant idea you had that'll probs make you millions while you're in the middle of washing your hair.

    a model writing on the notepad while in the shower

    Promising review: "THIS PRODUCT HAS CHANGED MY LIFE!! As a working mom of two pre-teens I have such trouble keeping things straight. When I shower it’s quiet 'alone time' and so many thoughts run through my head...this allows me to capture them before they are lost. Highly recommend to anyone who wishes they could capture those. Write and erases under shower stream, pages tear easily and dry fast! No smear and you can write with a regular pen after dries if you want to add or cross off." β€”mom of two

    Get it from Amazon for $9.50.

    12. Glossier Cloud Paint, which will add a touch of color to your cheeks with a quick swipe of lotion-like formula. The packaging is reminiscent of Pantone color cards adding an artsy chic element to your makeup bag!

    Glossier, Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "Life changing product. I originally bought Puff and Haze, and ended up loving them so much that I bought Dusk and Beam. These are very versatile. I use Dusk on my lids on lazy makeup days, and even sometimes use these on my lips for a slight wash of color. Not to mention, they are obviously amazing as blushes and look so natural and healthy. Will be getting a lot of use out of these, and very, very tempted to try out more Glossier items, as it is becoming one of my favorite higher-end brands." β€”Roxy

    Get it from Glossier for $18 (available in six shades).

    a white echo dot on a side table

    Promising review: "Excellent and life-changing. As a mom of four and as a full-time home renovator, I found that this product changed my life. I always have paint , grout, cement or wood stain on my hands and struggled to change my music while working without stopping everything to wash and dry my hands. I am an EXTREMELY impatient person and rush to do everything. Stopping to change music was extremely frustrating and time consuming. I no longer have to stop to text. Stop to write a grocery list! ! Stop to change the music! (Alexa actually sends my grocery list to me so I can access it while at the store!). Holy cow! My two teenagers and toddlers also use Alexa constantly for entertainment. My 3-year-old knows how to access Alexa's capabilities and often commands her to play her favorite Elmo tunes and so on! 100% worth the buy!" β€”SuperFam

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99 (available in four colors).

    15. A splurge-worthy Dyson vacuum that'll help you attempt to tackle the never-ending influx of hair, fuzz, and dust that threatens to take over every crevice of your home.

    a model using the dyson v11 vacuum
    dyson / Via

    Honestly, no matter which version of the Dyson stick vacuum you purchase, I can promise you'll be satisfied with the results. I've used a variety of 'em and I can't say enough good things about the product. It doesn't hurt my back to use for an extended period of the time, the battery lasts long enough to clean my entire apartment, and it simply just WORKS. We have ours mounted in a narrow spot alongside our fridge β€” it's really easy to keep in plain sight without being an eyesore.

    Promising review: "I love the Dyson stick vacuums. They were life changing for me with two large dogs. I started off with the V6 pet and absolutely loved it but I beat it up using it three to five times a week. We ended up moving that one to our upstairs and purchased the V11. Amazing suction... I love that it switches modes itself as I go from carpet to wood floors. I think it’s heavier than my V6 pet but it’s still easy to operate. It holds significantly more debris which is great. By far my favorite part is that it tells me how much time I have left until the battery dies. My only negative comment would be that you have to remove the attachments in order to empty the bin but with all the other advantages this is very minimal." β€”Mary Doherty

    Get the Dyson V11 from Amazon for $599+ (available in two styles).

    16. Blackout curtains to help you get to bed early and catch the recommended amount of Zzzs like any proper adult. Or, feel free to use then to sleep until 2 p.m. on a Saturday β€” no judgment here., Amazon

    Promising review: "These blackout curtains are awesome. If not for these my baby won't be taking longer naps during the day. Since I got these I was able to establish a routine with my little one. These curtains will not make the room pitch black so I have to tape them to the wall to make the room darker. It gets the job done and that is good enough for me. When my baby takes his 45 min or an hour nap, I can do housework, shower and take care of our dog. If you have a baby who won't nap longer than 15 mins, get these curtains! Trust me, it will change your life! I love them so much that I ordered a couple more for the grandparents' house." β€”E. Champion

    Get them from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in six sizes and nine colors).

    17. Batiste dry shampoo that'll save the day and help you get out the door with fabulous hair you may or may not have forgotten to wash the night before because you were too busy doing OTHER adult things like binge-watching Gilmore Girls., batiste_us / Via

    Promising review: "This dry shampoo has changed my life for the better. I’ve tried every other brand on the market (even the expensive ones), and this one works THE BEST. It does leave a bit of white residue, but to combat that, I spray it on my hair at night before I go to bed. It absorbs the oil, and then I don’t have the residue." β€”Jaimie Krause

    Get it from Amazon for $9.38.

    18. A roll-on substance created to shield your skin from chafing and blisters, because for some reason becoming an adult means wearing shoes that pinch, rub, and cut up the back of your heels.

    Promising review: "This product is amazing, I came back to buy another after my first one ran out, two years later! If you're here for the chafing between your thighs like me, this is the product you want. This changed my life, no joke. I could never wear short shorts, and always wore long shorts under dresses. I can wear whatever I want now! No uncomfortable rub or any irritation/ break out/ rash! Only soft skin and a super smooth glide. I've recommended this to a few friends and they've all came back and thanked me cause it's such a great product, I got they make it forever." β€”Jordan

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available as bottles or packs of towelettes).

    19. An automatic curling iron that'll do all the work for you in the morning so even if you snoozed your alarm five times you can still try to salvage your hair. What bad hair day!?,

    Promising review: "Life-changing sounds a bit exaggerated, but not for me! I hated curling my hair β€” it took so much time, I couldn't quite get the 'wrist twist' down with my straightener, my curls never seemed to last, the time it took just wasn't work it. I actually WANT to curl my hair now! It's quick, easy to use, and my curls last! You don't have to worry about twisting your arm up and around your head, while contorting to get that perfect curl. You seriously don't even need to do much of anything. It even alerts you when the curl is done. I mean, how much more simple could it get?! I'm so pleased with this product, I've told several of my friends about it." β€”Stephanie Overstreet

    Get it from Amazon for $40.83.

    20. An adhesive credit card holder you can use to make splurging on a mid-day latte that much easier as you run quickly during a lunch break. No more fumbling around in your unorganized wallet!

    a model showing the stretchy pocket in the adhesive credit card holder

    Promising review: "No joke, this little pocket changed my life. I don't have to carry a purse everywhere (unless I want to!). It also makes it much more difficult to leave the house without the essentials. The pocket does stretch to fit the cards you put in it up to about five. It remains stretched out if you decide to stop carrying one of your cards. If you're on the fence, buy it!" β€”SCarr

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 15 colors).

    21. Velvet hangers that'll help you gain control over your closet once and for all! Do you hear that? It's Marie Kondo cheering you on.

    Promising review: "SO happy with these so far. I had heard multiple times that these hangers would change my life. While this sounded nice, I struggled to justify spending money on hangers when I already have a couple hundred here that work just fine. However, after needing to add career clothes to my wardrobe and completely losing all free movement remaining in my closet, I put these in my cart. They came today and I've already switched out my whole closet (except for skirts β€” I am awaiting finger clips from Amazon to convert these hangers to pant/skirt hangers). However, the difference in my closet because of the hangers alone is striking. I can finally shift clothes to the side to actually see what I have. While some may think that saving their money and dealing with a tight closet is worth it, I am completely sold on making the change." β€”ChristineSD

    a wire placed nearly in a cable clip

    Promising review: "Life-changing. Seriously. Out of all the products I have purchased on Amazon, this Is my favorite β€” why? Well, I have issues with organizing and twisted cords and cables that fall off my nightstand make everything a mess. Even laptop cords by my bed would get tangled or fall out if sight and it would become a task to find anything that charges any electronics.

    I bought this pack of cable clip organizers and I put a few on my nightstand for my iPhone and other items and then one on my wall to vertically hold my laptop cable. All of my electronics now charge with ease and it's super easy to access my cables to plug or unplug the device β€” the stickies are great as the one cable clip on my wall next to my bed easily holds my larger laptop cable. No more searching for it! These little things are great! Highly recommended" β€”Aaron

    23. A milk frother that'll transform your hot chocolate into one out of a Hallmark Christmas movie scene. Delish., Amazon

    Promising review: "OMG, this milk frother makes my homemade latte taste like it was made by a barista. It was perfect.

This comes highly recommended." β€”Michelle Pirestani

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in 17 colors).

    24. A USB-powered defuzzer you can use to remove all the pills from that oversized sweater you refuse to retire from your wardrobe. Now you'll look presentable and still feel cozy.


    Promising review: "This thing is just spectacular! I originally bought it for my daughter for her dorm room just because of how annoying pills are and fuzzies on clothing and sweaters, but this has absolutely changed my life β€” I swear! It removes everything except the hair from the animals (who won't be present in her dorm room anyways), but once the fuzzies are gone you just need a long roller. No joke! Chaffing on pants, pills on sweaters, any sort of unwanted fuzzies are just GONE! I plan on buying another one for my wife for here at home. This thing is great! I would highly recommend this." β€”Daniel Jacques

This product combined with my cordless drill makes me a soap scum warrior! I spray a little product, wait a couple minutes and then a quick scrub. AMAZING! The large, long attachment is PERFECT for scrubbing my oversized tub ... and I don't even have to get in it. I loved it so much I ordered one for my dad." β€”Red Herring

    One little machine that can whip up hard-boiled eggs, poached eggs, scrambled eggs and omelets? Sounds magical! And let me tell you β€” it is. Get one of these egg-cellent appliances ASAP.

    Promising review: "This egg cooker is some sort of insane magic. It is brilliant...totally changed my life and is my new best friend in the kitchen. Super simple to use, instructions are extremely clear, with pictures and some recipes to get you going, and the different types of eggs you can cook with this is incredible: hard boiled, poached (!!!) and an omelet. We didn't even have to try it a few times to get it right β€” first time the eggs came out the most perfect I've ever cooked them and all I did was follow a few basic instruction steps, then walk away and listen for the buzzer. Even the buzzer at the end is more than a's music that my son and I dance to in the kitchen. I'm in heaven. All for such a low price. I can die happy now:)" β€”Amazon Customer

    Layla Sleep

    For some reason I tend to push my pillow away in my sleep and wake up lying beneath the pillow β€” which is *not* great for my neck. This pillow changed that for me. It's firm enough to make my head feel supported but soft enough to feel nice 'n' snuggly.

    Promising review: "Do you have cystic adult acne? Then buy this. And the clarifying solution and the duo. You can get a three-piece trial set. It's amazing. Changed my life.

This is the perfect topper so you can put your wine back in the fridge on its side and not have to worry about it spilling. It was a great aerator too.

    Amazon, Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "Holy crud!! This stuff works miracles!!! I rarely wash my makeup brushes. I use a liquid foundation. I may wash them once every two or three months when I think about it. Usually I’d have to let them sit and soak in water/brush cleaner mix for a few hours before I can really wash them to get the funky stuff out. This product! Wow! Life changing!! It cleaned them so quickly!! No soaking needed!! Didn’t even have to rinse and reapply! I did use a silicone mat to help but oh my gosh!! My brush." β€”Megan
