    Amazon has a list of products called "Movers and Shakers", which is pretty much just fancy talk for things that are currently ~trending~.

    Here are some of the coolest and most useful things on the list this week:

    1. A bottle of Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo that'll cleanse your dirty scalp and absorb sweat and oil without it ever touching H2O (since you might be on the go). / Via @livingproofinc

    Promising review: "This is the best dry shampoo I've found. I have super-fine hair that tends to flatten out and look greasy if I don't wash every day. This helps me stretch it to a second day easily and sometimes a third. It doesn't leave any residue, and I feel like it effectively makes my hair at least look cleaner. It fluffs it up a bit without having that really noticeable heavy feeling or excessive fluffiness that some dry shampoos leave. The smell is very light, definitely not one of the 'deodorizing' dry shampoos, so I'm not sure how it would work to cover up/remove smoke or other smells." —princess superstar

    Price: $19.36

    2. A unicorn table cover for anyone who is so obsessed with unicorns, they'd either like to have a whole party themed around them or decorate their house with those mystical creatures.

    Price: $4.37

    3. A convenient K-Cup carousel to clearly display all of your pods on the kitchen counter, because you know damn well you can barely function in the morning before you have your coffee.

    Promising review: "This product is a perfect size next to a standard Keurig; they match well together and it's so great how easy it is to store your K- Cups and find what you're looking for. I can't imagine using any other option!" —Michelle C.

    Price: $12.14

    4. A set of Dove soap bars infused with coconut milk, because you absolutely deserve clean, soft, and supple skin without drying it out. / Via @dove

    Promising review: "I have very sensitive skin and am so glad to have found something that works for me. I've even caught my fiance using my soap over his own. Love its creamy consistency and how it leaves me feeling fresh." —JMC

    Price: $6.88 (available in 17 scents)

    5. A foldable breakfast table made out of bamboo. It'll make it simple to have breakfast in bed on your days off.

    Promising review: "Perfect! They're lightweight and just the right size. My husband and I both have conditions that cause us pain. We spend all of our time, (when not at work), in bed. These trays are perfect to eat dinner in our adjustable bed while watching TV. They are also great for reading and my iPad!" —Amazon Customer

    Price: $19.79

    6. An insulated lunch box that'll hold your lunch, drinks, and snacks all while keeping cold stuff cold, and warm things warm.

    Promising review: "I bought this lunchbox for my husband. He takes his lunch to work quite a bit and the Rubbermaid box he had just wasn't cutting it. I tried several different lunch boxes but they were either way too big or too small. This one is a perfect size. It has pockets on the side for something small like a plastic fork or a granola bar. There is a zipper part on the top where he keeps his vitamins. The actual area to keep your lunch is large enough to hold leftovers or a sandwich and chips as well as an ice pack to keep it all cool. It's perfect for what I needed it for." —Micjop

    Price: $17.55 (available in three colors).

    7. A pair of polarized sunglasses that'll protect your eyes from those crazy rays of sun, all while looking stylish AF.,

    Promising review: "They are affordable shades that feel comfortable when worn. The small screwdriver it comes with helps tighten up the hinges just in case they become loose. They definitely have helped protect my eyes from the very bright sun. I like these shades." —Mr. Z

    Price: $11.99 (available in 21 colors).

    8. A pack of outlet timers so your lights can actually go out when you want them to, saving you so much money in electric bills.

    Promising review: "They seem to do the job of turning lights on and off at the times I selected. I appreciate the switch that allows for outlet or timer. They are smaller than the others I purchased at the hardware store. They fit well behind furniture and don't hog the whole outlet!" —C. Hayes

    Price: $11.99 (for a set of two).

    9. A toy gardening set for all the little ones who love doing yard work with their parents but are too tiny to handle the full-sized version.,

    Promising review: "This was purchased for my toddler because he was always attempting to use his father's gardening tools. I wanted something that could hold up with heavy toddler abuse. This does the job! They have been used heavily and tossed into the back of ATVs with great force, and they look like new. My son loves them. We keep them at our vacation home where they are used the most. He loves to dig in the dirt and mud and help me rake the leaves and pine tree needles. I'm very happy with this product and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants something that actually works. We've used this product for an entire season. Spring, summer, fall — still loved!" —JustAMomInPA

    Price: $18.74

    10. A travel-sized garment steamer with a built-in extension cord to work out wrinkles caused by being stuffed in a suitcase for hours.

    Promising review: "Just the right size. I actually didn’t buy this to use for travel. I wanted a steamer to keep in our bathroom where our closets are. I just unpacked our summer clothes and many are wrinkled. This steamer is fast and I can get rid of the wrinkles pronto...much faster than ironing. It’s great for touch ups at the last minute when dressing to go out also." —Moucheron

    Price: $25.99

    11. A loose and lightweight cardigan that'll be perfect for those essential spring layers, while giving you a soft, wispy look.

    Promising review: "I am in love. I knew this kimono had potential when I ordered it but the feel, look at fit exceeded my expectations. I wore it over jeans, perfect. Over leggings with a belt to hold it in place, classy and comfy." —Jacklyn Carini

    Price: $5.18+ (available in sizes 2–12 and 35 colors)

    12. A set of waterproof shoe bags for storing all of your dirty-ass shoes in your suitcase without staining your clothes.

    Promising review: "Nice shoe bags. I bought them for a trip, mainly so my shoe soles wouldn't dirty my clothes and they worked well. I also had one in my carry-on so that when I traded shoes for slippers in the plane cabin, my freshly removed shoes wouldn't be smelling up the area and they worked well for this. The larger bags worked well for my large sized women's hiking boots, with a little smooshing, so fairly roomy." —Illuminatrix

    Price: $11.88 (for a pack of four)

    13. A fog-free shower mirror that'll make it super easy to shave your beard without leaving the comfort of the steaming, hot water.

    Promising review: "I gave up on shaving mirrors around 10 years ago because they just never seemed to work reliably, even the expensive versions that are installed into the water pipe to have hot water flow through them. I came across this one and decided to give it a try. It works great! I hit it with hot water on both sides, and shave away, fog free. I hold it with one hand and shave with the other because I don't need nor want to hang it to prevent water spots. After use, I wipe it off with a towel and just keep it nearby in my bathroom. This keeps it free of water spots." —A gamer at Heart

    Price: $12.99

    14. A batting tee to get your little baseball-player-in-the-making ready for the new season. They can use it to practice all of the home runs they're gonna score for their team!

    It can be adjusted from 20 to 40 inches and has a solid metal base for extra stability.

    Promising review: "My son is in T-Ball this spring and we wanted to get a T for him to practice with at home. This one is actually nicer than the one that our coach was bringing to the games, so we bring it along for them to use now. It holds the adjusted height really well. It does not tip as easily as the one our coach has, and it is lightweight so it is easy to carry from the car to the field." —JayneDoah

    Price: $17.99

    15. A handy step stool with dot-textured grips that'll definitely assist you in getting that spare pot from the top shelf without hitting your head and dying.

    Promising review: "We cannot recommend this step stool enough. After buying one for us, we liked it so much we bought more as gifts for family members, and they all love it. This stool is perfectly sturdy, but is lightweight enough that our small kids can carry it around easily. It folds up and can be stored in all kinds of convenient places without taking up much room." —Todd and Tina

    Price: $8.99 (available in three colors).

    16. A buzzworthy set of tumblers for the budding bartender who wants to entertain friends and family members who are ready to get a little tipsy for the fun of it all.

    They're made with a substantial one-inch rounded base so they don't fall over when placed on a flat surface! The set includes eight high balls and eight low ball glasses.

    Promising review: "I have had these glasses for a week now and I absolutely love them. The glasses actually look a lot better in person than they do in the picture. They are nice heavy glasses, but not too heavy. They don't feel flimsy, and my glasses have come out of the dishwasher every time, I still have all 16! In fact, my 80-pound puppy knocked one of the tall glasses over on our hardwood floor and we have no chips or cracks in it." —R. Ghosh

    Price: $24.99 (for a set of 16).

    17. An Conair ionic blowdryer with tourmaline ceramic technology designed to uniformly dry your hair faster and with less damage!

    Promising review: "Best hair dryer I have ever bought. It will dry your hair on a hot, warm, or cool setting with just the switch of a button. I have thick hair, so my head gets hot easily. I use it on the warm setting all the time and my hair looks great. It is also pretty quiet as far as hair dryers go. Some of the hair dryers out now sound like an airplane taking off, but not this one. It's all-around great!" —S. Barwick

    Price: $21.33

    18. A windproof, inverted umbrella so you won't get soaked while getting in and out of the car, since when you close it, only the dry side is exposed.

    Promising review: "You’re going to love this inverted umbrella. It is very sturdy and will stay in place when it’s windy. The handle at the bottom is ergonomic and you will be able to hang your groceries on the handle all while keeping dry. With it being inverted, it flips to close inward. You will stay dry and you can just dump the excess water very easily. This umbrella is the perfect gift for anyone who wants to stay as dry as possible." —Adam Chris

    Price: $22.18

    19. A non-slip yoga mat you can take to the nearest studio, because your expert-level stretches require stability so you don't...bust your ass.

    Promising review: "This is a great yoga mat. I have been practicing yoga for close to 20 years. I used a mat I bought from Target for years. Upgraded to another mat that I got from Amazon that I also enjoy. This mat is for in my studio and when I travel. It is wonderful. Not a great travel mat if you want to travel light w/o bulk. I have yet to find one of those. This mat is wonderful in many ways. Good cushion w/o throwing off your balance, great grip, easy to clean. It is in my art studio and sometimes gets a little of my artwork on it. I highly recommend this mat and the price won't break the bank." —E Gray

    Price: $16.99 (available in 10 colors).

    20. A tidy, leakproof trash bin for your car, because tossing your old fast food onto the floor isn't a good look, especially when you're trying to be a better human being.

    Promising review: "This trash bin is the perfect size for my 2015 Toyota Corolla S and my needs. I'm usually driving by myself, but sometimes I have family and friends that are not so tidy with their trash and end up making it a scavenger hunt when I clean my car. The StashAway Car Trash Bin sits at the bottom and is tightly secured with the pull-cord around the center console, while still allowing for someone to sit in the middle back seat. It can hold enough trash for my small trips and is easy to dump and clean. The extra pockets are a nice feature to store small snacks and other miscellaneous items." —Mitchell

    Price: $19.99

    21. A set of exercise resistance bands to give you the extra friction you'll want when trying to condition your muscles without the added fuss of weights.

    Includes four resistance bands with different colors and thickness.

    Promising review: "These bands came nicely packaged and with a bag to store them in. I love using bands in my workout at the gym and have used them every day in my home workout since I got them. There are no rips in the bands and good quality." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $10.66 (available in three colors).

    22. A copy of The Confidence Code for Girls: Taking Risks, Messing Up, and Becoming Your Amazingly Imperfect, Totally Powerful Self for empowering young women and letting them get in touch with their inner strength, even when things seem a little bleak.

    Promising review: "At a stage when girls need to build their confidence the most, they often feel lacking in it. That’s why I think this book is so important. It tackles many real life issues that girls are facing and writes about them in a relatable and respectful way. Importantly, it provides practical tips on how to deal with the butterflies, tackle fear, and handle self doubt — in a clear, engaging, you-got-this style. Just reading this book provides a boost of confidence, for moms too!" —SHA

    Price: $10.31
