    40 Products With Such Good Reviews You May Want To Test Them Yourself

    Is it hard to justify *not* buying a couple of these things when the reviews are so darn convincing, or is that just me?

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. Environmentally friendly dishcloths made of cellulose and cotton you can use to clean your counters, stovetops, dishes, shower doors, and mirrors — and they come in fun designs!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These are awesome and don’t know why I didn’t learn to use these in the kitchen and bathroom ages ago. They wipe down countertops, sinks, and everything, leaving hardly any water behind and pick up even the smallest of debris, lint etc. These are great quality." —Shopper56

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $11.22+ (available in 12 styles).

    2. A throw blanket that'll make sure you'll always be at *peak* coziness whether you're plugging away on your laptop while working from home or binge-watching The Real Housewives.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this blanket so much that I bought four of them! I keep one in my living room and one in each bedroom. The fourth one I gave to my daughter who told me she sleeps with it every night. It's warm and soft and heavy enough to know you've got a real blanket on you and not something light as a sheet. I do suggest you not put in the dryer as that's what melts the fibers and causes a once soft blanket to become pill-y and not so snuggly soft. I hang mine over my railing to air dry. I've washed them multiple times and they've held up fantastic! Overall a great blankie! Definitely my favorite!" —Baby Red

    Get it from Novogratz on Amazon for $17.99+ (available in seven styles).

    3. A set of five masks from Reformation for anyone who considers themselves to be a fashionista.

    Emma Lord / BuzzFeed, Reformation

    BuzzFeed Editor, Emma Lord, recently placed an order for Reformation's mask set and was really pleased! She said:

    "Not only is shipping free, but it's pretty darn fast — I ordered my set April 17, and they arrived on April 24, which was a relief considering a lot of major retailers who have pivoted to making masks are experiencing back orders up to mid-June... At least some of the fabrics used are from their actual line; being a flawless internet sleuth (read: Googling the words "navy floral Reformation"), I have unmasked that my masks were made with the same material behind Reformation's Rosehip Dress in the Yolanda print currently retailing for $248. This is the fanciest my face has ever felt."

    Get a set of five from Reformation for $25.

    4. Star Wars socks featuring Darth Vader, a Stormtrooper, Chewbacca, and R2D2, so you'll be able to feel the force right down to your toes.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These socks are rad! I mean, how can you not love them when they have some of the most iconic characters ever? They are comfortable, wash well, and only peek out a little when you wear with shoes. You might find yourself humming the theme song as you stroll along. You kind of hope your friend has a no shoe policy at their house so you can just bust these bad boys out. I wear an 8.5 in women's and these fit perfectly." —Shanster84

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $13.50 (one size fits most).

    5. 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, Sarah Han / BuzzFeed

    My former colleague Sarah Han (as well as MANY other BuzzFeeders) is a big fan of this product. This is what she had to say:

    "I wasn't a blush person until I met Cloud Paint. Any other attempts at wearing blush always looked super unnatural and accented redness on my face that would, as you might guess, populate in the cheek areas. It was always too much or too little, no in between. Little did I know I needed to say goodbye to powder blushes and let ~gel-cream~ blush into my life. The gel-cream formula just blends so seamlessly, like no other blush I've ever used, and it's a piece of cake to use. It doesn't make pores look more apparent and just gliiiiides over your skin for a dewy-looking flush. And if I have too many glasses of wine, I can blame any flush on the blush."

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

    6. A hybrid mattress to basically provide you with *two* mattresses instead of one — with a single flip you can go from an extra firm feel to a softer one without splurging on a new bed.

    Idle Sleep

    My in-laws had been trying to decide where to buy their next mattress from when I came across Idle's hybrid mattress. It's special because you can customize it for a specific feel on each side. Tired of sleeping on a too-soft mattress? Flip it over and enjoy a more firm one! It's pretty cool — the shipping was incredible, as was watching the bed-in-a-box puff out into a massive, sturdy mattress in seconds. My in-laws are loving their new mattress and have zero complaints!

    Promising review: "My husband wanted a flippable mattress, i wanted a mattress with pocketed coils, we both wanted a double sided firm mattress! The Idle Hybrid checked off all the boxes and more! The most comfortable mattress and sleep we ever had! Thank you Idle!" —Terri

    Get it from Idle Sleep for $1,136+ (available in seven sizes).

    7. A rose quartz facial roller and gua sha that is said to help alleviate headache pain and increase circulation in the face. I've been using mine to help with my seemingly endless tension headaches and jaw pain.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This roller was received in great condition after shipping. I have used it consistently for two weeks, and even had my husband use it. It has held up. The roller's most useful benefit imho is the fantastic way it distributes products! My face serum usage is easily halved. Without it absorbing into my skin of my fingers during application, it will be saving me a lot of money. After storing it in the fridge, I noticed how it reduced slight swelling and general puffiness." —A. Olsen

    Get them from Amazon for $25.17.

    8. A mini fridge/freezer with a retro vibe you can use to secretly store all of your favorite drinks and snacks you don't want your other family members to find.

    galanzamericas / Via instagram.com

    I have one of these adorable lil' fridges and it's as functional as it is cute! The freezer is DEEP — like fits-an-entire-ice-cream-cake deep.

    Promising review: "Great fridge! Looks good. Runs efficiently and mostly silent (just a slight hum when the compressor kicks in). I purchased this one because I wanted a small fridge without a can rack on the inside of the door. Without it, this fridge has tons of storage for lots of non-soda can things! Freezer is also super roomy. This is a great product for anyone who wants a stylish appliance that works well and saves space." —REV

    Get it from The Home Depot for $229.26 (available in three colors).

    9. A Mickey Mouse pullover, so you can embrace spring with brighter, exciting colors while also showing off your love for Disney.

    Forever 21

    One of my coworkers who knows how much I love a good piece of Disney apparel saw this and was like "YOU NEEEEEEED TO BUY THIS!" As a shopping editor and Mickey fan I found it pretty hard to disagree, so naturally I ordered it. It shipped quickly and definitely didn't disappoint. The colors are vibrant and playful, perfect for springtime! It's super soft but not *too* plush that I'll sweat in it as the temperatures heat up a bit. I can also totally see wearing it over a bathing suit when the sun goes down for a little extra warmth. Definitely recommend.

    Get it from Forever 21 for $29.99 (available in S–M).

    10. A multi-position blower fan to keep your garage chill even when you're ~losing your cool~ because you can't figure out how to fix your bike.

    The Home Depot

    Promising review: "Bought this during a heatwave when The Home Depot and every other store were out of window AC units — and this bad boy saved the day! It blows out COOL air (no idea how) and it's SO POWERFUL. Best $80 I've ever spent. May get another one. I'm always hot and when I use the lowest power setting on this thing, it's more than enough — and the 'high' setting is like a jet engine! and I love it! This saved the day — so I HAD to write a review about how amazing it is (and I rarely write reviews)" —sweatydude

    Get it from The Home Depot for $74.96.

    11. A five-in-one wine aerator, stopper, pourer, filter, and re-corker that'll become your go-to housewarming gift because, honestly, no home should be without one.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "YOU NEED THIS! I love this wine corker. These do exactly as they say they will. When I got mine, I immediately took one out, put it on a bottle of wine and purposefully turned it upside down, shook it and let it sit that way for 10 minutes. NO LEAKS! I was so happy...finally something to keep my wine from leaking. Not only did it not leak, but the aerator design allowed my wine to taste wonderful and stay fresh." —Mary B

    Get it from Amazon for $9.61.

    12. A selfie ring light for gorgeous photos you can ~click, click, click, and post~ like Ariana Grande on Instagram.

    elf Cosmetics

    Promising review: "I do drag, cosplay, natural, and full glam makeup very often on myself and others. Taking pics in various places with various lighting can be a pain in the butt, but this ring light has three settings of light brightness. It's super helpful!" —pairofcds

    Get it from e.l.f. Cosmetics for $12.

    13. 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 $7.99.

    14. An electric air compressor combo kit that'll assure you're always prepared in case you get a flat tire or want to take on more advanced DIY projects.

    The Home Depot

    This set has 930 five-star reviews — so it's definitely worth the splurge. It comes with the compressor, an 16-gauge nailer, an 18-gauge nailer, and a 3/8 inch stapler. Additionally, my brother-in-law, who spends A LOT of time working on projects around the house, says he doesn't know how he ever lived without it.

    Promising review: "Super useful and too good a deal to pass up, so I bought it and I am glad I did. I was in need of a new compressor and compared to my 10-plus-year-old pancake compressor this Porter-Cable is light as a feather and quiet. I also like the dual pressure gauges. One for the tank, one for the tool pressure. I will use the 16-gauge finish nail gun for most of my work but the other gun and stapler will come in handy for certain projects. I have used them all and they work great. I have installed trim in four rooms, doors, windows, and floor mold trim and the guns have not jammed once. I think this was a great purchase and recommend it for any professional or homeowner." —Franztini

    Get it on sale from The Home Depot for $199 (originally $269).

    15. A "Best of the Week" crossword puzzle book any word nerd would be delighted to dive into — just don't expect to pay attention to anyone at all for the next week with the exception of asking "what's an eight-letter word for snow storm!?"

    BuzzFeed / Maitland Quitmeyer

    I bought this at the beginning of quarantine and it has been an amazing way to kill time and exercise my brain. My colleague Maitland Quitmeyer has also been loving these books, she said:

    "I love crosswords. Growing up, my brother and I (and sometimes my dad when we could talk him into it) used to make copies of the New York Magazine crossword of the week and race our way through it. Yes, I'm a little competitive, why do you ask? I've put my fair share of crossword puzzles in shopping roundups, so when I saw this stay-at-home time coming around the bend, I ordered a couple of these NYT day-of-the-week crossword books.

    They become more difficult throughout the week — the easiest on Monday, and the most difficult on Saturday. The famous Sunday puzzle? It's about a midweek-level. PLUS, these compilations are spiral-bound to make filling them out (and keeping your place) super easy. As a lefty, I am PLAGUED by hard-to-write-in non–spiral bound volumes. If you're bored-in-the-house-and-I'm-in-the-house-bored, or just need a little break from hours of TikTok (me me, very much me), I would definitely recommend these!"

    Get them from Amazon for $8.99+: Monday here, Tuesday here, Wednesday here, Thursday here, Friday here, Saturday here, and Sunday here. Select New York Times crossword books are also available on Bookshop (to support local bookstores).

    16. And lavender laundry detergent from Love Home and Planet that'll probably leave you lingering to inhale your warm, fresh-from-the-dryer towels for a bit longer.

    lovehomeandplanet / Via instagram.com

    I recently used this product to soak my cloth face masks and now they smell AMAZING — a great decision, if I do say so myself.

    Promising review: "This detergent is amazing, when I tell you guys the smell leaves your clothes insanely wonderful, I do not say that lightly, yes it is a little pricey but I truly believe it's worth it!" —Taylor

    Get it from Target for $12.99.

    17. A compact washing machine you'll tell everyone you know about because it'll save you tons of quarters and time spent at a laundromat.

    The Home Depot

    ....and it'll prevent you from having to wash your undies in the bathtub like I've been doing lately.

    Promising review: "This was the best investment I've made. I reside in a walk-up apartment building (basically no elevators) and it was becoming to be a challenge to do laundry as I also have kids. I decided to purchase this washer and...well...it's the best choice I've made. It's easy to set up and use. It was slightly bigger than what I was expecting, but fits well in my somewhat small apartment. I'd definitely recommend this product to anyone who is seeking an efficient and space-saving washer." —DeeMartin32

    Get it from The Home Depot for $399.

    18. A fabric shaver that'll keep everything from sweaters to furniture looking fresh and lint-free.

    Target

    Promising review: "This was the best purchase I’ve made in a long time. It works SO WELL. For years I have hated looking at pills on clothing and have used razors, my fingers, and different settings on the drier as well as air drying certain items, and nothing truly helped with the pilling on my clothes. This product is 100% worth the buy, I can’t believe I haven’t had one my entire life. This should be a household staple by now. If you don’t have one, buy it!!! My clothes look brand new. Works on hats and other fabrics as well. Plus it is SO satisfying to remove the pills. The front is adjustable too, so you can bring the blades closer/further away from the fabric depending on how fuzzy or thick it is. Just 5 stars all around." —chickenparm

    Get it from Target for $11.99.

    19. Rubbermaid FreshWorks storage containers with venting technology to help keep your produce fresher for longer — no more tossing soggy veggies into the trash after two days!

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    The vents regulate the flow of oxygen and carbon dioxide and keeps moisture away so your strawberries taste freshly-picked days and days and days later. I recently got a couple of these and a bunch of basil and strawberries stayed fresh for SO LONG!!

    Promising review: "I read the reviews and thought I’d give these a try since they here easily half the price of the other ones I looked at that had to have the charcoal filters replaced periodically. These need no filter changes and oh-my-gosh, they work! I went on a 10-day trip to visit my mom and left my husband home with asparagus, strawberries, and spinach in the containers. He ate some of all of them, but there was plenty left when I got back and they were in perfect condition! I couldn’t believe it! These will save us a lot of money not throwing away food because we couldn’t get through it fast enough. (We shop at Costco and get large containers of produce.) These are TOTALLY worth getting and I will be getting a few more sizes. Excellent product!!!" —Elizabeth Walter

    Check out our full review of these game-changing containers!

    Get them from Amazon for $7.17+ each (available in six sizes and in sets of multiples).

    20. 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.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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: "The center stone of my ring (an oval white sapphire) has been cloudy since shortly after I got it. I have to use a lot of hand sanitizer at work, which gets under the stone. This product was easy to use. The little brush gets under the stone really well (much better than a toothbrush). My ring looks like new." —FintanCat

    Get it from Amazon for $6.93.

    21. A Mr. Coffee drip coffee machine that'll ensure a classic, delicious cup o' joe will always be within arm's reach.

    BuzzFeed / Rachel Dunkel

    BuzzFeed writer Rachel Dunkel has been *raving* about this coffee machine:

    "I'll admit, I can be prone to coffee snobbery now and again. I have just about every appliance, tool, and gadget to make coffee this way and that, but there's one I always come back to — the Mr. Coffee. My dad has used a Mr. Coffee basically every morning since the beginning of time, so when I got my first apartment — finally free of the "no cooking appliances" rule ubiquitous to college dorm life — of COURSE I bought the cheapest 12-Cup Mr. Coffee drip pot I could find. That same pot has been with me ever since (for over six years!), quickly brewing up cup after steaming cup of coffee for my roommates, friends, and me, never failing to make my morning and little better. It has also survived many, many moves while packed in pretty precarious boxes. TL;DR: it's also durable.

    If you've somehow never made drip coffee before, listen, it's really easy. Just pop in a filter, fill it with coffee, fill the machine with water, and flip the switch. Boom! You've got java. Most mornings, flipping literally one switch is all I feel capable of, and Mr. Coffee thinks that's just fine! Is it an artisanal cup of coffee? No. But is it delicious and plentiful and quick and easy? Heck yes. I fully support making a lil' pour-over as a treat, but for an everyday pot for yourself and every coffee drinker in the house? Unbeatable."

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (also available in white).

    22. A delicate initial heart-shaped necklace, in case you've been looking for a new piece of simple jewelry you can wear every day.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "The best necklace I’ve ever had!!! It’s the perfect size and length, so dainty and flattering! I was worried about the gold fading (because it’s so wonderfully affordable) but it hasn’t — not even a little bit!!! I’ve worn it every single day for about a month now, even accidentally wore it in a chlorinated pool for a little bit but nothing happened and it’s never been damaged! Has become such a staple for me and my everyday outfit, don’t feel complete without it anymore. Would highly recommend and will be buying another if this one ever breaks!!" —Brittany Burrahm

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (available in 26 styles).

    23. A tortilla press that'll help you take your Taco Tuesdays to the next level without going above and beyond your minimal cooking skill level.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

    Like many of you, I've been trying all kinds of new things while spending time social distancing over the last few weeks. My latest challenge? Making my own corn tortillas. Except, thanks to a handy lil' tortilla press from Verve Culture, it wasn't much of a challenge at all. The press is made in Mexico from old Singer sewing machines and other recycled irons! The cast iron should last you, basically, forever so it's definitely worth your money. I still can't believe how easy they were to make! We used Maseca's corn flour (the bag has instructions on the back how to make the tortillas) and it was so simple. They came out *so* well I was beyond impressed with myself.

    Get it from Amazon for $45.

    24. A red wine-stain remover so the next time you jump while watching a horror movie, it won't matter that you spilled your vino all over your brand-new couch.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm sure if I knew more about science and chemistry, I'd understand how this stuff works — but since I don't, I'll just assume that it is MAGIC. If you care at all about your carpet, you need to have a bottle of this on standby. Over the years, we've used it to make numerous wine and red juice stains vanish before our eyes. The effect reminds me of the novelty shop disappearing-ink gag from when I was a kid. Seriously, if you've never seen Wine Away in action, it's worth spilling a little Cabernet on your carpet just so you can see it vanish after a few spritzes. I honestly wouldn't believe how quickly this stuff works had I not seen it countless times with my own eyes." —DarthClem

    Get it from Amazon for $7/94.

    25. A Soda Stream Fizzi to help you reduce your plastic and can consumption without giving up your obsession with sparkling water.

    BuzzFeed / Abby Kass

    BuzzFeed writer Abby Kass has been happily using her Soda Stream:

    "I'm a huge fan of sparkling water. I've been drinking it for years. At one point, my roommate and I were each buying a six-pack every week so we'd never run out in our apartment. But then, I was introduced to the SodaStream Fizzi, and my life was forever changed. I like this version because it's manual, which means it doesn't require electricity, so it doesn't have to be plugged into the wall. It comes with the water maker, a 60L CO2 Cylinder, and a 1L slim carbonating bottle. Each C02 canister makes around 60 bottles. We replace ours about every six weeks. And according to the SodaStream website, 1 CO2 bottle equals 2,070 disposable bottles.

    There is a bit of a learning curve to it though, and many reviewers talk about how it can make a mess. And that has happened to me a couple of times, but once you get the hang of it, it's really easy. The whole process takes about 30 seconds. Yep, it's that simple. Plus, when you're done, you can add fruit or soda flavoring to make any kind of drink you want. When the CO2 bottle runs out, you can exchange it and get a new one for half-price. Not only do I feel great about the less waste I'm creating, but I do feel like I'm actually saving money."

    Get it from Amazon for $69+ (available in black, white, and rose gold).

    26. A jetted-tub cleaner, so you'll never find yourself soaking in filth while trying to catch up on your me-time.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My wife told me we had to really clean what appeared to be a clean tub. We moved into a house where the previous homeowners were not the best cleaners. She had me get this product based on reviews. My one complaint is the label needs to be bigger. OH YUK is not enough. OH YUK YOU MIGHT BARF might be better. I think someone had a bowel movement in my bathtub plumbing and this is the only product that takes it out. It appears we have seven years of crud in the pipes. The feces-colored film that this product gets out of your pipes will make you a believer. The first use it released so much toot film that we felt like we needed to have another round of cleaning. After losing a bet I had to stick my hand in the water to drain it. Wiping off all the released film we filled the tub again. Just turning the jets the water seemed to be clear. However before I was going to ever get into this thing I wanted to do a second round of YUK treatment. Once again in full force it appeared that someone had the squirts in tub as sludge came flowing out of the pipes. We're going to have to run this a few times before we use the tub. Remember those pink tablets that you use to get in grade school to show you all the plaque that was on your teeth..... The product is like that for your tub." —Paul Southwick

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    27. Bantam Bagels' sample pack, a must-have for anyone who's a New York-transplant and forever missing the the taste of a classic bagel.

    Bantam Bagels

    I recently tried out these as-seen-on-Shark Tank bagel bites (WFH snacks, a must) and they are absolutely delicious. Each flavor is unique and stuffed with a different kind of cream cheese (yum!). My personal favorite so far is the everything bagel stuffed with veggie cream cheese, but you might as well go all-out and treat yourself to as many flavors as you can. They really do taste like fresh NY bagels!

    Get a sample pack from Bantam Bagels for $37.95.

    28. The Wand, a handheld filter designed to remove the histamines and sulfites in alcohol that may trigger headaches and hangovers. This lil' gadget will have 'em singing out "blesssss my souuuuul" like one of The Muses from Hercules.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "OMG!!!! This works. I love wine, but have terrible allergies to the histamines, sulfites, and preservatives in wine. I actually use one wand for two glasses of wine. I was very skeptical, but it works like a dream! Thank you PureWine. This is really a breakthrough for me." —Penny Froh

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $11.99.

    29. La Roche-Posay gel cleanser to assist in conquering your arch nemesis: acne. It's made of a salicylic acid that'll target blackheads and whiteheads directly. See ya', pesky pimples.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was lucky enough to have clear skin in high school so I never understood how awful acne really is. When I was about 21-22 years old, I switched to a birth control implant, and that thing wreaked havoc on my entire life. I suddenly had horrible cystic acne. Not only did it make me self conscious and uncomfortable, but it was actually so painful — laying on my pillow hurt my face! To top it all off, my skin was also dry, and irritated. I tried every skincare line on the market for about two to three years, with no, or very little, results. Finally, I found La Roche-Posay's skincare products. Within four days, the inflammation decreased, the redness was fading, and my skin felt less dry. By two weeks, my skin was practically clear! I have been using this product for about four to five years now, and I haven't had a single outbreak, EXCEPT for the time I wanted to try a different product to save money. Huge mistake, one I will not make again." —LadyHawke

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    30. A John Frieda Hot Air Brush for anyone who looooves to get pampered with a blowout but can't actually afford to get one every week.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "This hot air brush has made the biggest difference in my usually flat, frizzy hair! I now have more body and shine than I have had in years! I highly recommend this product. It is lightweight and easy to use. My hair holds a style longer and it is so much easier than trying to blow dry my hair while also using a round brush trying to style it. I wish I would’ve discovered this hot air brush years ago! Love it!" —L

    31. A supercharged vitamin C serum that'll help protect your skin against UV rays while also repairing damage that was already done. You won't think twice about adding this into your daily beauty routine.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I have never felt more compelled to write a product review before. This stuff is INCREDIBLE. I have tried almost everything to improve my skin. I continue to get acne in my mid-thirties and literally everything else I've tried has not worked, including prescription topical cream and oral medication. This has saved my skin! I have had very few breakouts, and if anything pops up, this takes care of it quickly! My skin feels moisturized and looks smoother and healthier overall. This is truly one of the best purchases I've ever made. I'm thankful I stumbled upon this serum!" —J.C. Denton

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    32. A backlighting kit, perfect for anyone whose gaming screen is in your shared bedroom so your partner can turn off the overhead lights and get some shuteye while you play 'til your heart's content.

    Promising review: "These are just amazing. I have them set up under my desk and connected to my Xbox for dream gaming. 5/5 stars from me" —Brent M.

    Get it from KontrolFreek for $24.99.

    33. A distressed cropped pullover that'll look s'cute with your fave high-waisted leggings.

    Aerie

    Promising review: "I love this so much!! I have lived in it for the past week since it has arrived... so soft, the distressed elements add interest if I were to pair it with jeans and actually wear it out. It runs large but it’s supposed to. Great purchase!" —Objectionnn

    Get it from Aerie for $31.46 (available in sizes 2XS-2XL and eight colors).

    34. A heavy duty hose you'll find to be super strong but very light, so you won't have fret about your plants or grass suffering.

    The Home Depot

    Promising review: "My old hose gets a LOT of sun, and hence had many exterior cracks. Additionally, it was unusually heavy for a hose. This Flexogen hose solves both of those problems. Its exterior coat is more plastic than rubber, preventing the kind of drying out you would get with a standard rubber hose. On the weight side of things, this hose is just about middle of the pack. Not unnecessarily heavy, but heavy enough that you feel the quality. Additional emphasis has been placed on the hose ends, which usually are an afterthought in most hoses. The end that screws into the faucet has a hard rubber neck which will prevent crimping at the connection. But my favorite feature by far is the hex wrench fitting. I can't tell you how many times I've literally CRUSHED the far end of the hose trying to remove or replace a plastic spray nozzle that has broken. About half the time a wrench is needed as the nozzles just refuse to come off. No more crushed ends with this clever yet ridiculously simple solution! A good hose all around." —Steve

    Get it from The Home Depot for $26.97+ (available in two lengths).

    35. A hypoallergenic, paraben-free, gluten-free sunscreen that is available in an array of SPFs, so you'll rest easily knowing your skin is protected at all times.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this product! While planning a trip to Hawaii, I was determined to find some new, reef-safe sunscreens. I bought a few different brands and this was by far my favorite! It was super easy to apply-not like that thick, white, glue that some of the newer sunscreens are. It smelled absolutely amazing-a fresh banana smell-not chemically. It absorbed well and didn't feel greasy. It was moisturizing and felt good on my skin. I usually don't get any color if I use SPF 30, but if I use SPF 15 I burn. This actually gave me a pretty deep tan-but I didn't burn at all! Seems more like a really good SPF 15." —K. ramirez

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available 3 or 8 oz and SPF 15, 30, 50, and 70).

    36. A bottle of Truff truffle-infused hot sauce you'll probably want to start planning your meals around — it's THAT good.

    BuzzFeed / Hannah Loewentheil

    BuzzFeed Writer Hannah Loewentheil is a biiiiiig fan of this delicious sauce:

    "There's one ingredient that makes even my most average home cooking taste amazing, and it's this TRUFF truffle-infused hot sauce. I first heard about TRUFF on a list of Oprah's favorite things, and I knew she would never lead me astray. So I quickly realized I needed TRUFF in my own kitchen.

    There are three kids of TRUFF hot sauces: the classic black truffle sauce, a 'hotter' sauce, and the crown jewel, the creme de la creme, a white truffle hot sauce. Look, the white truffle–infused hot sauce quite literally tastes like heaven, but IMO, the classic black truffle hot sauce is the most versatile and a staple in my kitchen. And while at first $20+ seemed like an absurd price to pay for hot sauce, this stuff is worth the price tag. I mean...truffles. And here's the thing: I've tried plenty of truffle-infused hot sauces, olive oils, and what-nots in the past, but they often taste overpowering or low-quality. TRUFF hot sauces are the perfect balance of decadent truffle, heat, spice, and a tiny bit of sweetness. Now I'm completely and most likely irrevocably hooked to this liquid gold. I slather it on pretty much everything savory from eggs and tacos to sandwiches and fried rice. If you're looking for a way to add flavor to your home cooking or turn basic meals into pure extravagance, you should probably invest in a bottle of TRUFF."

    Get Truff from Amazon: the black truffle hot sauce for $17.98, the "hotter" sauce for $17.98, and the white truffle hot sauce for $34.99.

    37. A trio of items from Glossier that'll look *so* nice next to each other on your bathroom counter and help you achieve that glowy, dewy look you've been working on.

    Glossier

    The set comes with Glossier's milk jelly cleanser, priming moisturizer, and balm dotcom salve.

    Promising review: "I started using this two weeks ago (I use it every other day) and it's helped my skin calm down SO much in such a short amount of time! My skin is combo but more on the drier side, and when it's super dry it tends to itch extremely bad, but this quickly helped with that and I haven't felt any irritation since using it! It leaves my skin very soft and smooth, without the tightness! Really glad I bought this kit! The balm is honestly my favorite part of this kit, its hydrating, smells good and has super cute packaging." —Susan

    Get it from Glossier for $40 (usually $52, balm dotcom is available in eight shades).

    38. A Cricut Joy for anyone who loves making their family and friends feel special with homemade cards — this gadget will take your skills to the next level!

    Amazon

    The Cricut Joy is a lil' cutting and writing machine that'll help you make all kinds of cards, banners, and more!

    Promising review: "I've wanted a Cricut for years but never had the money till recently. I ordered the Joy mainly cause it's cheaper and I just don't have the space for the larger models, and I'm so glad I did cause it is absolutely PERFECT for my needs. I mainly wanted it to make custom decals for my car and whatnot and the Joy is just right for that. I've made four or five already and they all turned out great. Super easy to use too, I was up and cutting within 10 minutes of opening the box." —K. Lattanzio

    Get it from Amazon for $178.83.

    39. An oversized Madewell tote you'll absolutely love because it isn't "over-the-top" and will have room for ALL of your random necessities — yes, even that spare packet of tissues and a Bed Bath & Beyond coupon from 2009.

    Madewell

    I've gotten one of these as a gift and have given one to my sister as well. It's my favorite bag to date! It has a small pocket inside you can pop your phone into (or anything else you'd be looking to grab in a hurry) and has so much space. I've even fit my laptop into it! The straps are sturdy and I love that this version also has a chic suede stripe down the middle. The best part? You can add your mom's initials for an extra special touch.

    Get it from Madewell for $158 (available in two colors).

    40. And an outdoor pizza oven that'll make every party a pizza party — and everyone knows there's nothing better than a pizza party.

    The Home Depot

    My parents moved from New York to North Carolina and the only thing they regret leaving behind (other than me... I hope) is the amazing pizza. The solution? They bought their own pizza oven! Now they whip up fresh pies like it's nothing whenever they're getting a craving for the ~good stuff~.

    Promising review: "The Italia has truly been an experience for me. I cooked five pizzas with brick oven-like quality. Each pizza only taking about five minutes from start to finish. Literally the best pizza I have ever had!!" —Pizza Steve

    Get it from The Home Depot for $235.95.
