    1. Dr. Jart Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment to make it look like Cinderella's Fairy Godmother waved her wand across your face and said "POOF! Redness be gone!" — it also protects skin for UV damage and has SPF 30 in it.

    Elizabeth Lilly / BuzzFeed

    "I use this every single day and to demonstrate just how well it works, I put it on half of my face in the pic on the left. Seriously, the color-cancelling prowess is impressive. Also it took me nearly a year to go through the full-size jar. So if the price has you feeling iffy, you can try out a travel version. I'm forever indebted to this stuff." —Elizabeth Lilly

    Promising review: "I have rosacea on both my cheeks and a bit on chin and also have a couple of acne spots on my chin as well and I’ve tried so many foundations to cover up my cheeks and no matter how full coverage my cheeks will still show through. So I decided to try this and I love it!!!! I use this after primer and moisturizer and then use a foundation (because I fake tan and my face is paler than my body) and my skin looks amazing!!! I’m so impressed! I love makeup but I could never really use a lot of face products because I was embarrassed. Definitely recommend if you have rosacea and want to wear full coverage foundation or even as a BB cream." —elyse1518

    2. A jewelry cleaning pen that'll revive any gem you've got and leave it *so* sparkly your roomie will exclaim, "MY EYYEEEES" when they look at it.


    My best friend introduced me to this miracle-worker of a product (ON HER WEDDING DAY!) and I feel compelled to share it with the world. I swear, it's that good. And over 3,000 Amazon customers agree. I quickly bought my own Diamond Dazzle Stik and never looked back! It keeps my engagement ring and wedding band (in addition to all my other pieces of jewelry) sparkling like the day I got them. I've even used it on cubic zirconia studs to spiff 'em up a little. All you have to do is wet the tip, twist the back of the pen, scrub your gem, and rinse 'em all off (PLEASE KEEP YOUR DRAIN CLOSED). This pen is a game-changer and is my go-to gift for any newly engaged couple. Check out my full review on the Diamond Dazzle Stik here.

    Promising review: "I read a lot of Buzzfeed Shopping, because I have to admit that I am an Amazon shopaholic, and they have the best suggestions ever. Anyways, I always encounter this product on almost every article, and I thought that this is just overrated. But, heck, did I have one of the most **dazzling** surprises of my life. This little pen is a game-changer. I followed the instructions on the label, and as I was rinsing my ring under the tap, I just have to gasp. My engagement ring is new; just a little more than 6 months old but oh the shine. You can really see the difference. How did I live before this stick?!?" —ErikaCH

    Get it from Amazon for $11.15.

    3. And tarnish-removing wipes to transform all of your silver and gold baubles back into the way they looked when you first bought them.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

    My mother-in-law recommended this product to me and it may be the greatest thing she's ever given me (aside from, I guess, the life of my husband). I had a bunch of tarnished Tiffany's jewelry and my standard jewelry cleaner wasn't doing the trick. I ordered a jar of these wipes and put them to the test. I think my photos (pictured above) speak for themselves! I went to tooooown cleaning every piece of jewelry I owned simply because I was amazed at how well this product worked.

    Promising review: "I was honestly shocked at how well these wipes work. I have a lot of silver jewelry that I stopped wearing because it was so tarnished. I'd tried other jewelry cleaners and none worked very well. I ordered these wipes because I trust the Weiman brand, having used some of their other products, and I wasn't disappointed. Even on the pieces that were pretty much black with tarnish, they cleaned with just a few swipes with one of the wipes. Earrings and pendants all came clean with very little work on my part." —FL Zoo Mom

    Get it from Amazon for $12.70.

    4. A hydrating lip balm made with honey, plant oils, and shea butter you'll find so moisturizing even the harshest of winters or painful sunburns won't stand a chance against it.

    Reviewer photo of the lip balm, which comes in a small pot

    "Nuxe's Rêve de Miel lip balm is truly holy grail-tier IMHO. I bought my first pot at a pharmacy in Paris after hearing British beauty bloggers rave about it — and it did not disappoint. It's quite thick when you first apply but it literally melts on your lips when you rub it in. It feels hydrating without being sticky, and a little goes a long way. My lips are basically never chapped — not even in the middle of winter — thanks to this dreamy lip salve. I'm pretty sure Nuxe stopped selling this in the US, so we are truly blessed that Amazon carries it. (Seriously, I love this lip balm so much that I accepted two pots of it as payment for house-sitting for a month.)" —Melanie Aman

    Promising review: "This product has saved my lips! Even in the dead of summer my lips were almost constantly chapped and peeling and even after one use of this product I could see a major difference in how my lips felt! While this product is quite pricey, a little goes a LONG way and I can see this jar lasting me a long time! If your lips need some serious TLC I highly recommend picking this up!" —Joyce Nallen

    Get it from Amazon for $24.

    5. A roll-on migraine stick to nip your pain in the bud before it gets out of hand and ruins a perfectly good day of binge-watching Netflix.

    Yi Yang / BuzzFeed

    "The stick provides a pleasant, cool, tingling feeling, almost like VapoRub. It lessens the intensity of the pain, and, if my headache is dull or just starting, it can make it go away almost entirely. If nothing else, it at least extends how long I can go without taking ibuprofen and delays the splitting headache I sometimes feel coming after a long day. I've taken so much less Advil since I started using this! Plus, you can reapply as often as you need.

    Besides how well and how fast it works, my favorite thing about this product is its size — which is roughly the same as a tube of lipstick, so it's always in my purse. I can't go anywhere without it, and it's so comforting to know that I have it in case a headache strikes. My mom has suffered from migraines for as long as I can remember, so I put some of this in her Christmas stocking. She loved it; while it couldn't make her migraines totally disappear, it provided much-needed relief so she could enjoy her day.

    Do I still sometimes have really stubborn headaches? Have I made the mistake of putting too much of this on my temples and made my eyes water a bit? Yes and yes. But I still consider the Migrastil Migraine Stick a small miracle and something that has definitely changed my life for the better." —Katy Herman

    Check out Katy's full review on the Migrastil Migraine Stick here.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    6. A FOREO LUNA mini 2 facial cleansing brush for every skin type — an excellent treat for anyone who is always on the hunt for the next addition to their skincare routine (ahem, YOU).

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    "The acne scars on my cheeks from a series of breakouts are fading fast, and I get new acne very rarely — they're more like a pimple here and there occasionally when I have to fly somewhere (curse you, dry airplanes) or get stressed or.... who even knows why my skin freaks out sometimes. Never thought I'd ever put a no-makeup selfie on the internet, but that's how much I love this thing." —Maitland Quitmeyer

    Check out Maitland's full review of the FOREO LUNA Mini 2 here.

    Get it from Amazon for $119+ (available in six colors).

    7. A rechargeable lighter, so you can light every candle in your house to create the *perfect* ambience without concern you'll run out of lighter fluid.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    I'm obsessed with candles, so it was a no-brainer for my husband to gift me this surprisingly super fun gadget for Christmas. It's really simple to use and charge, and it really works! TBH, I haven't had to charge it since December! The batter lasts forever! I'll never have to buy another lighter again.

    Promising review: "This is seriously the coolest device of my winter holiday. It makes lighting candles a breeze. Yes, there is a weird crackling noise, but that's a super minor annoyance. It's a super intuitive device. Plug in the lighter with the USB (included), charge for a bit, then pop it open and light ALL THE THINGS; well, candles. I don't know how well it lights cigarettes or whatever. However, for my personal intended use, it's awesome!" —Jee W

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    8. Tarte Shape Tape concealer which you've likely been eyeing for months now and will be so excited to finally learn what the hype is about. Let us tell you — it'll live up to it.

    Kayla Boyd / BuzzFeed

    "This is my holy grail concealer! I love it so much that I'm always buying it before I run out because I seriously use it every time I put on makeup. Under \-eye bags? A pimple? Hyperpigmentation? I DON'T KNOW HER! This stuff seriously covers all my blemishes and it's super easy to apply. The formula is on the thicker side, but it blends wonderfully. It doesn't make you look cakey or leave creases. Plus, it's super convenient to carry around and apply on-the-go. This product is honestly worth the hype." —Kayla Boyd

    Promising review: "I love everything about this product. It's soft and creamy and easy to blend into my skin. It lasts all day and doesn't crease!! It also makes it easier for me to wear just concealer on my more lazy days without looking like an incomplete face. LOVE IT." —Trent U.

    Get it from Tarte for $27 (available in 30 shades).

    9. Otherland candles, whose scents are as fantastic as the designs of their jars — you'll likely find yourself hoarding them because they're so beautiful (guilty).

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, otherlandco / Via

    As previously mentioned, I have quite the affinity for candles. When I'm in the mood to treat myself, one of the first places I turn (aside from my local coffee shop) is Otherland. They release different collections for each season, so I enjoy the *rush* of having to pick 'em up before they're retired. Apologies that some of the ones in my personal stash (pictured above) are no longer available, but you can grab the "Core Collection" at any time and indulge in the current "Beach Club Collection" which has me swooning and eyeing my wallet.

    Get them from Otherland for $36 each (currently available in eight scents).

    10. SheaMoisture Organic African Black Soap you can use to battle pesky blemishes that seem to pop up at the worst timing possible (read: class pictures, prom, wedding days).


    "I absolutely swear by this soap. I've never had major acne struggles, but I do get zits just like everyone else and am prone to fungal acne on my forehead. I use this every morning in the shower, and while I'm not 100% free of pimples (as a person with bangs and who uses a roll-on essential oil stick for headaches, I can never really expect to be), I feel like this stuff makes my skin glow. I also don't usually get my flare-ups of fungal acne on my forehead when I use it daily. I really think this stuff has done wonders for my skin." —Katy Herman

    Promising review: "I was desperate to find something to help my 18-month-old son with his eczema that was pretty severe. I wanted to use something more natural so I tried coconut oil but that absorbed very quickly and left him still feeling scale-y. I read somewhere this African black soap was great for skin so, bought it so I could start trying it immediately. As you can see in the picture it started working very well after only a week." —DanandTiff

    Get it from Amazon for $2.79.

    11. Breville the Barista Express Espresso Machine, because why venture out for an overpriced beverage when you can whip one up at home at any time???

    Yi Yang / BuzzFeed

    "This stainless-steel beaut is the single most expensive appliance in my entire home and lemme tell ya — it's worth every penny! I had it on my wish list for *many* years before finally investing in one and I've used it literally every day for three years. It's still running like new and consistently makes cafe-quality drinks. I used to buy a latte outside every other day (which in NYC, costs around $5 a cup — big yikes) but I've cut that down to maybe once a week (at most) since getting this machine! I think with the money I've saved on lattes, this machine has already paid for itself.

    Before this, I tried pretty much every kind of coffee gadget to try to recreate the same taste as my local cafe but just couldn't get it 100% right (including the Nespresso machine, which comes pretty close). What I love most is I can grind the beans, extract the espresso, and froth the milk all in one place — you really don't need to purchase any other accessories to go with it (other than water filters and cleaning tablets). And all three of these components work really well, almost at the level of a professional machine, especially the milk frother which produces super fine bubbles that make latte art possible.

    It's also great to be able to choose the beans I want — so I can still support local coffee roasters — instead of having to purchase capsules. Bottom line — the coffee is darn good. If you mostly drink cold brew, pour-overs, or drip coffee, then this machine is probably unnecessary. If you love espresso-based drinks and are somewhat of a coffee perfectionist, I'd highly recommend the Breville Barista Express. It's a splurge but will likely last you for many years to come." —Yi Yang

    Get it from Amazon for $689.99.

    12. Olive and June x Zeba The Everything Box, a must-have for anyone who doesn't want to commit to the semi-permanency of a gel or powder but would benefit from owning all the tools for the making of a flawless at-home mani.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

    When I saw the incredible summer color line-up from Olive and June I had to get my hands on it (literally). This collection is a collab with Zeba (who you should definitely follow on Instagram). I was inspired by the rainbow mani found on Olive and June's Insta and loved it because I didn't have to try and choose between all the stunning colors! The polish stays on for over a week and when you purchase the full kit you'll also find yourself equipped with tools to pull off a flawless mani. My favorite tool is the little brush, designed to help you clean up your cuticles after inevitably getting polish all over 'em. Treat yourself, you won't be disappointed.

    Get it from Olive and June for $88.

    13. An interactive meditation device to help anyone who typically has a hard time quieting their mind really get the hang of a new, soothing routine.

    John Mihaly / BuzzFeed

    “Finally, a vibrating device I can actually review! I've tried all number of meditation apps with little success. There was always something missing and I finally figured out what that is: a physical element. Core combines its Meditation Trainer (the round, buzzing, rosewood orb) with app-based on-demand classes and instructors. Charge the trainer (it'll last for two weeks), select a meditation from the app, and place your fingers on the biometric feedback pins to begin.

    Depending on the session type, the vibrations will guide your breathing or help you focus your attention. That's the physical element I mentioned. Having something to feel is the perfect distraction for keeping your mind from running off while breathing consistently. The app will also track your progress when it comes to how calm and focused you are during your sessions as well as chart your heartbeat.

    I'll say this, I feel different after I use it, calmer, more relaxed. I try to do 20 minutes a day. App upgrades and new sessions are available at an added cost. I think I finally found the thing that does the thing!“ —John Mihaly

    Get it from Core for $169+ (with a 30-day risk-free trial).

    14. Glow Recipe Watermelon Toner that'll act as a deliciously-scented refreshment for your face and give you a dose of summertime even in the midst of winter.

    Sarah Lee / BuzzFeed

    "'Tis the season for watermelon! With the warmer temperatures approaching, I've been craving a cool and refreshing snack and so has my skin. Enter Glow Recipe's PHA + BHA Pore-Tight Toner! I've never been a huge fan of using a toner as it always felt like a waste of time and would leave my face feeling oily and sticky. This toner does have a slight sticky texture due to the cactus water but once patted on to your face, the stickiness disappears.

    I actually like to keep the toner in the fridge because it’s super refreshing and hydrating when I put it on — especially after a warm shower! If I also have a zit, I like to get a cotton pad and soak it with the cold toner. Then I press the pad against my zit for a couple of minutes! After using this for a while, I've seen a slight reduction in pore size and because my skin isn't too oily, I've also seen a reduction in overall breakouts." —Sarah Lee

    Promising review: "I am very much happy and satisfied with this toner. It hydrates my skin properly. Toning of the skin is commendable I feel soft, smooth, supple and fresh. Texture feels light and my skin soaks it up nicely." —Beniciomom

    Get it from Sephora for $34.

    15. Nexcare pimple patches that are not for the faint of heart — you'll agree when you see how successfully they pull all the goo from your zits. *Shivers*

    Katy Herman/BuzzFeed

    "These pics were taken after leaving the patch on overnight, which is how I find them to be most effective. They need several hours to really knock out a blemish. I also use them during the day, but often find I take them off too early. They also work best on pimples that are already a little bit open — a sucker that's not quite ready to pop won't usually yield results as dramatic as this. Still, putting on a patch during the day or on a non-open zit can still help an acne emergency. I find that they mask the zit a bit and help prevent you from picking at it or making it worse. If nothing else, the blemish is usually a little less huge and swollen when a patch comes off.

    And let me say, I am slightly obsessed with them. I accidentally ordered several boxes at once a couple months ago, and it may be the best thing I ever accidentally did. Now, I keep a sheet of 'em in my work bag, my purse, my toiletry bag, and my bathroom shelf. When I'm out somewhere and have a pimple that's bugging me, I want to use one right away. It's basically as much of a purse necessity as lotion or ChapStick. Sometimes I find myself almost wishing to get a zit so I can use them, because they're just so dang satisfying. Like I said, obsessed." —Katy Herman

    Get them from Amazon for $4.36 or Walmart for $4.40.

    16. A shower curtain liner with mesh storage pockets you can count on *not* to judge you for the overflowing number of shampoos, conditioners, body washes, and face washes you rotate through.

    Elizabeth Lilly / BuzzFeed

    "Yep, you're looking at my shower! I upgraded from a corner tension rod caddy and never want to go back. The mesh pockets drain water so your liner won't get all icky. And they make it easy to tell the difference between the minimalist packaging for your face wash and shave cream when it's way too early in the morning." –Elizabeth Lilly

    Get it from Amazon for $14.50.

    17. Beyond Burgers that'll blow the minds of even the biggest of meat-eaters — seriously, you'd never know they're made of veggies!

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, beyondmeat / Via

    Hear me out — I'm not a huge meat-eating person, however I love a good burger once in a while. When my husband and I decided to try these on a whim we weren't sure what to expect. But what really didn't prepare for was literally not being able to tell that these burgers weren't meat. I've since been trying to convince everyone in my life to give them a try. Most recently, I got my veryyyyyy Italian, meat-loving in-laws to give them a go. My mother-in-law was fully ready to hate these burgers. After her first bite she quietly looked down at the burger in her hands and said "wow, I can't tell the difference." Do yourself a favor and give Beyond Burgers a try — they're like a delicious mind trick you won't be able to figure out.

    Get a two-pack from Target for $5.99 (pick-up only).

    18. Pet House candles, a must-have for anyone who owns a dog who loves nothing more than long walks in the rain (resulting in a wet dog scent that tends to linger in your home for far too long).

    Elizabeth Lilly/BuzzFeed

    "This candle acts fast and I don't have to keep it lit for long, which is safe/good because I'm terribly forgetful. It comes in so many ~regular~ candle smells like Fresh Citrus and Pumpkin Spice — not just the de rigueur odor-neutralizing Clean Laundry or Fresh Air. And in case you're wondering, Mango Peach smells divine. Also worth noting they're made of 100% natural soy wax and without dyes, and the company supports nonprofit, no-kill animal rescue groups. Win-win for the furry friends!" —Elizabeth Lilly

    Check out Elizabeth's full review of Pet House candles here.

    Get it from Amazon for $21.95 (available in 26 scents).

    19. Chunky Dad sneakers with a '90s vibe you'll discover are *so* comfortable you'll take back every snarky comment you made about your dad's personal style choices.

    Kayla Boyd / BuzzFeed

    "My pair is mostly white with some beige details, reflective piping, and a few smaller lavender details. I like that they're pretty neutral and versatile without being too simple. I often wear them with leggings, but they also pair well with skinny jeans or even a casual dress. In addition to the wide range of colors and versatility, the technology makes them ~extremely~ comfy! Unlike many chunky sneaker designs, these are very lightweight. The inner layer is snug, stretchy, and hugs your foot like a sock. They're breathable and I never have to worry about them coming untied." —Kayla Boyd

    Check out Kayla's full review of the Ozweego Adidas here.

    Get them from Adidas for $55+ (available in men's sizes 7–14, women's sizes 8–15, and 20 colors).

    20. Spanx high-waist leggings that'll likely become your most beloved pair as they'll help you smooth out any lumps or bumps (if that's your preference) and will stay in place whether you wear 'em while doing yoga, climbing a mountain, or to bend down and pick up the remote you dropped.

    Elizabeth Lilly / BuzzFeed, Spanx

    "This was me hiking last summer in Santorini posing for a photo op. It felt like a looong hike (I don't hike often, OK?). Despite POURING In sweat and walking up pretty steep inclines, my leggings did not bunch or roll. I've worn them what I guess is 50+ times since both for running errands in my hood and for actual workouts. They're super comfy, wash well (I send them out for wash and fold laundry service, which can be rough on clothes), are seamless all over, and flatten the look of my stomach (if that's a concern) without making me feeling like I'm in sausage casing. They're my nicest pair of leggings and honestly I could wear them almost every day in quarantine. And if anyone is wondering, I bought an Oreo ice cream sandwich and wine at the end of that picturesque hike." —Elizabeth Lilly

    Get them from Spanx for $78 (available in women's sizes XS-3X).

    21. Or Spanx bike shorts you can count on to become part of your day-to-day wardrobe rotation whether you’re working from home or breaking a sweat in an intense HIIT class.

    Model wearing the high-waisted bike shorts with a black camo print

    “Spanx is a woman-founded brand mostly known for its shapewear. but their activewear is also really great. They have a lot of seamless styles and basic pieces that really do their jobs. I've been living in these bike shorts recently and am obsessed. They seem pretty small when you first see them, but they stretch a lot and they're never too tight. I've done many a workout in them, and they stay in place, which is always a great thing. I highly recommend them and may need to get a couple more just so I can wear them every day...” —Abby Kass

    Get them from Spanx for $58 (available in sizes XS–XL, 1X–3X and two styles).

    22. A makeup brush-cleaning shampoo, because — shocker — you need to clean those!

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

    After reading about how necessary it is to actually clean your makeup brushes (I know, I KNOW, I should’ve been doing this for years) I was super grossed out and motivated to order the right supplies to do the job. I’ve heard good things about Ecotools makeup brush cleansing shampoo so I figured I’d start there. The Amazon listing also suggested buying a silicone makeup brush cleaning pad to go with it so I figured... why not? Well, now I’m patting myself on the back because ordering these two items was a GAME-CHANGER!

    I could not believe how much residue came off my brushes in just one cleaning. You only need to use a little dab of the shampoo, so one bottle will definitely last a long time. The silicone pad made it super easy to thoroughly lather the brushes without leaving my bathroom sink in shambles. I also loved how each section was labeled with which brush should be cleaned in each area. My brushes look brand new! Don’t hesitate like I did — buy both the shampoo and the mat ASAP.

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    23. Glow Recipe's Avocado Sleeping Mask that'll definitely get you more for your money (and your skin!) than an over-priced avocado toast at brunch.

    Sarah Lee / BuzzFeed

    "For the longest time, I've been meaning to add retinol into my skincare routine as it helps increase the rate of skin cell turnover to help improve skin’s texture, minimize fine lines and wrinkles, and possibly decrease pore size also! However, my skin is super sensitive and introducing new products can be difficult. Luckily, Glow Recipe's Avocado Melt Retinol Sleeping Mask is a perfect starter retinol for people with sensitive skin (like me) or looking to ease into retinol with a mild product. I started off with the 25 ml and used it twice a week in the evening. I recently splurged on the 70 ml size container because I finally ran out of the 25 ml size — that's how much I enjoyed using the product and cannot live without it! When I use this product, I do see a difference in the morning as my face feels noticeably softer and brighter. The best part is the buttery texture of the mask, it's soothing to put on right before I go to sleep. I like to use this with my facial roller in the evening to help the mask absorb in my face." —Sarah Lee

    Get it from Sephora for $49.

    24. Stila's Stay All Day Waterproof Eyeliner to likely become your go-to product for lazy days where you still want to look *slightly* put together — one quick *flick* and it'll stay put until YOU decide to remove it.

    a model holding the thin stila eyeliner pen

    "I use this (and when I recently ran out, I went back to an old liner I had and instantly regretted it), and I have the greasiest eyelids ever. This has been the best liquid eyeliner ever. Even if you avoid non-drugstore brands, this will be worth the double-digit price. Oh, AND it won as our mid-priced pick for the best liquid eyeliner on BuzzFeed Reviews. But even before that, several people on the BuzzFeed shopping team swore by it." —Elizabeth Lilly

    Promising review: "Eyeliner so easy to apply that the blind can use it! I'm legally blind and do my makeup by feel. Eyeliner is the hardest to do, so I've gone without for years. Decided to give this one a shot based on the reviews and was not disappointed. Came out great and was so easy to apply! So happy to be wearing eyeliner again!" —Lowe Family

    Get it from Amazon for $22 (available in 12 colors).

    25. A set of produce-saving containers that'll prevent your fruits 'n' veggies from spoiling quickly and *therefore* prevent *you* from wasting produce! Win-win.

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    "On March 5, I put half of my fresh strawberries in the medium-sized container and left the other half in the clamshell container they came in from the store. And here they are 10 days later, on March 15 (see above images)!!! The berry I left in the original container's dehydrated and blemished, with wrinkled, crunchy leaves. (I'm not eating the leaves, but still.) But the produce-saver strawb's as fresh as it was on day one! Not that I wouldn't eat the dehydrated one, if that was my only option, but given the choice? I'll take a fresh strawberry every day!" —Natalie Brown

    Get it from Amazon for $12.53+ (available in five sizes and in sets of two, three, and four).

    26. A robot vacuum to clean your kitchen for you when you accidentally empty half a bag of flour onto the floor instead of the mixing bowl.

    Bed Bath and Beyond, Paul Braga

    I recently got the Neato Botvac D7 and it has become a treasured possession for me and my husband. I don't know if it's just because we're home *all* the time or because we love it that much but we definitely treat it like our pet. You're instructed to give the vacuum a name (ours is Kevin) and can then set it to clean on specific days/times. It's super efficient and has done a great job cleaning hard-to-reach spots — and it'll send a notification to your phone if it gets stuck (see above). Good boy, Kevin.

    Get it from Amazon or Bed Bath and Beyond for $599.99.

    27. Glamorous satin pillow cases that'll help keep hot sleepers (guilty) cooler throughout the night and are said to keep skin and hair feeling more moisturized.

    navy blue satin pillowcases on pillow on made up bed

    "I am a ROASTING HOT sleeper and these really do make a nice lil' difference in my sleep routine. I love mine so much that I pack them for trips!" —Elizabeth Lilly

    Promising review: "I was originally looking for silk pillow cases, but decided to give these a try because they were a better price. I am not disappointed! I have seen a noticeable difference in my hair in the mornings and overall they are so smooth and comfortable to sleep on. I’ve washed them several times and haven’t seen a difference in the quality. I would buy again." —Kate

    Get two from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in three sizes, and 22 colors and styles).

    28. Allbirds Dashers to make you feel like you're walking on air even if you're dripping sweat and huffing 'n' puffing from your outdoor summer run.


    Without access to the gym I had to push myself to learn to run while safely social distancing (which is NOT an easy feat). I’ve had multiple foot injuries (I’m very accident prone) so choosing the right sneaker has been a challenge. I’ve tried out manyyyy different pairs but the only ones that have truly won over my heart are the Allbirds Dashers. I got them in a stunning mint green color and get tons of compliments on them. They’re super supportive, lightweight, and have held up great against months of running outdoors. Honestly, I’m already looking into buying a second pair!

    Get them from Allbirds for $125 (available in men's sizes 8–14 and six styles, women's sizes 5–11 and eight styles).

    29. A Tempur-Pedic mattress topper that'll have you daydreaming about the moment you flop back down onto your cloud-like bed from the second you leave it in the morning.

    "I personally use it to transform my cheap little mattress into a cozy cloud of comfort. It added 3 inches to my bed and has helped me sleep SO much better!" —Kayla Boyd

    Promising review: I love this mattress topper. I had one on my old queen size bed for years, but recently upgraded to a California King. I tried out other less expensive mattress toppers in hopes I could find one of the same quality at a lower no avail. Nothing compares to it. I caved and repurchased it for my bigger mattress. I feel like I just melt into this thing. It can make even the oldest, stiffest mattress feel like a cloud." —Chelsea S.

    Get it from Amazon for $249.99+ (available in sizes twin—Cali King and with or without cooling technology).

    30. Farmacy's Honeymoon Glow, a night serum filled with hydrating honey and gentle flower extracts to help you decrease the look of pores and leave your skin looking healthier than ever.

    "Farmacy's Honeymoon Glow is my favorite go-to fix for when I breakout due to stress, hormones, etc. I’ve been using it a lot these days (at least once a week) as an overnight treatment and it’s been a life-saver. My zits reduce in size, so I'm less likely to pick at it — thus avoiding acne scars! I’m also not positive but I have seen a reduction in blackheads on my nose. When I first used this product it did have a slight tingle but it quickly went away! To adjust to the tingle, for the first couple of times I used this mask as a wash-off mask to get my face adjusted to it but I’ve learned that the real work is done when left overnight! It may be a bit pricey, which is why I reserve it for times when I break out a lot or need a little pick-me-up before an event. I've had this product for a while because all I need each time I use it is one pump, so it'll go a long way!" —Sarah Lee

    Get it from Sephora for $58.

    31. A water bottle with colorful rubber bands to help you keep track of just how much H2O you’ve managed to consume while watching the entire season of The Babysitter’s Club.

    "I’m someone who genuinely enjoys drinking water. I’m not into soda or sports drinks, and other than a cup of coffee or herbal tea, I always try to drink enough water throughout the day, but I always feel as if I’m never drinking enough. I’ve tried to track my water intake through the Plant Nanny app several times, but I’m not a very good virtual plant mom (welp!), and I’ve tried to set alarm reminders on my phone, but then they’ll go off when I’m in the middle of doing something and I forget. That’s where this tumbler comes in. I’ve seen it numerous times on Amazon, and because I am bored in the house, and in the house bored, these days I’m tempted to buy anything and everything on Amazon… so, I did it.

    I’m not going to lie, my expectations for both this tumbler and myself were low. I could never succeed at taking care of a cute little plant on my iPhone, HOW would I succeed at moving some rubber bands off a water bottle? There was no way this could actually work. Boy, was I wrong. I’ve had this for three weeks now, and for three consecutive weeks have drank eight of these a day, It’s become a fun little daily challenge to work my way through all of the rubber bands. Each time I finish drinking all the water in the tumbler, I slide a rubber band off, and wear it on my wrist, and it actually feels SO rewarding. I also feel so much better keeping up with my daily water intake and knowing that I’m staying hydrated." —Samantha Wieder

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in 16, 20, or 32oz).

    32. A chic phone case that’ll become a treasured accessory of anyone who absolutely detests carrying around a handbag or backpack.


    “I’m obsessed with this phone case. I’ve been using it for the past six months, but it’s been so great to have during quarantine. The pocket makes it so useful. I keep my ID and credit card in and then don’t need to carry a purse when I go anywhere. I just add the strap, and am good to go. It’s so convenient because I really don’t need much when I leave the house to go for a walk or to the grocery store. Plus, it looks so chic. I used it when I was in Paris back in January, and the strap kept it secure, even as I was taking pictures over the edge of the Eiffel Tower. It’s a splurge, but it’s def worth it for the quality and convenience that comes with it.” —Abby Kass

    Get it from Amazon for $88+ (available for iPhone 6 plus – iPhone XR).

    33. Poppi prebiotic soda, a must-have for anyone (like myself) who relishes flavorful drinks but is tired of sipping on sugary refreshments.

    Guuuuys. I'm obsessed with these drinks. I tried them on a whim and now I can't get enough of them. I've always been a big soda fan (I don't drink alcohol — everyone who knows me knows my actual vices include ginger ale or Cherry Coke) so I wasn't sure how I'd feel about these prebiotic-infused beverages. And yet, after one sip, I was hooked! My favorite flavors are raspberry rose and strawberry lemonade (so refreshing). Even my husband, who hates anything carbonated, loves these drinks. In addition to their Instagram-able packaging, these babies are free of fat, gluten, GMOs *and* are vegan! While I *could* live without these, I don't want to!

    Promising review: "SO GOOD!! I was hesitant to purchase due to the price but I’m glad I did. I’ve really been missing soda since becoming diabetic and I wanted something healthier. This tastes amazing. I recommend the blueberry and raspberry rose flavors." —Virginia

    Get a 12-pack from Amazon for $35.88 (available in two variety packs and seven overall flavors).

    34. And a waterproof Kindle to help you tackle that suuuuuper long to-read list you’ve planned for this summer.

    Abby Kass / Via BuzzFeed, Amazon

    “I've been an avid Kindle user for the past five years, but when I saw this version, I knew it was time to upgrade. The main selling point is the fact that this one is waterproof. So waterproof, in fact, that it can be in up to 2 meters of fresh water for more than 60 minutes. Plus, it's lighter, has more storage, and the battery lasts for WEEKS. I took this on vacation with me and was so impressed. I was able to sit on the ledge in the pool and read without worrying about getting the device wet. And I even put it in the water to test, and it still works perfectly. Plus, I used it every day and didn't have to charge it the whole time I was on the trip. That gets a big gold star in my book.“ —Abby Kass

    Get it from Amazon $129.99+ (available in 32 and 8 GB and in four colors).
