    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 super reliable external battery that'll provide up to two charges so you can power up your one true love on the go, especially since you needed a new phone, like, years ago.

    Promising review: "I have nothing bad to say about this product! I ordered two for my friend and I to use with our Galaxy S4's specifically for Pokemon Go. While running Pokemon Go, this battery charges my phone faster than my phone drains. They charge quickly, and are relatively small. I just throw it in my pocket and use the charging cable it comes with while walking places. Great external battery. We've had zero issues with the two we've ordered and are very happy with them." —Jen

    Price: $15.99+ (available in four colors)

    2. A comfy, breathable blouse for when you wanna go for a nice stroll in the park on a warm day.

    Promising review: "This top is adorable! The color is spot on with the pictures. The fit is right on and cute. I bought a patterned black and white legging capri to wear with the red shirt and it's a super cute outfit. I've washed it, hung it dry, which I tend to do with all my clothes unless it's raining outside, and it didn't shrink or fade." —Tammy Parker

    Price: $16.99 (available in sizes S–XXL and six colors)

    3. An adorable watering can your kid can use to water all the flowers in the garden at the same time as you. Nothing is sweeter than bonding time with nature!

    Promising review: "This watering can is great for little ones. My husband fills it with water and lets the kids carry it around the pool deck and water our herbs. They feel so important carrying this can around and watering the plants. It's small, but it does the job. We love that it's made with safe materials for our kids." —gators

    Price: $13.61

    4. A microfiber wash mitt that'll get all of the excess dirt and grime off your car without scratching the paint.

    Promising review: "Way better than my old overpriced wash mitt. This is so much lighter and softer. The microfiber is definitely a big improvement from my old mitt. I did not feel like this mitt got too heavy after soaking up water. It was still lighter than my old one and held on to the soap much better." —eevans004

    Price: $6.35+ (available in three colors)

    5. A pack of chemical-free wool dryer balls for anyone who has sensitive skin, but still wants their clothes to be smooth AF once they come out of the dryer.

    Promising review: "I wish I would have bought these a long time ago. I put a little lemongrass essential oil on three balls and toss them into the dryer with my laundry. My clothes come out static-free and smelling amazing!" —pecan

    Price: $9.45 (for a pack of six)

    6. A refreshing spray with rosewater and glycerin to give your skin some added moisture, especially after a long and trying day.

    Price: $8.65

    7. An awesome book perfect for articulating just how much you love and appreciate your mom and all that she does.

    Promising review: "It is small, but very cute. I filled it out with some very serious responses, and some funny, and sent it to my mom for Mother's Day. I got a call a few days later from my mom crying; she was so happy and appreciative. I'm glad that this tiny book, filled with my thoughts, could bring such a beautiful response. Not only did I reminisce when thinking of things to write down, but it was fun for her and me to talk about. Just do it." —sandi danzinger

    Price: $13.68

    8. A flowy maxi dress with cool pockets to pair with your cutest pair of strappy sandals because summer is on the horizon!

    Promising review: "The length is perfect, it’s not too long and fits perfectly with a pair of summer mules and medium wedge sandals! I think the width is great, and I love a flowy cut." —april

    Price: $21.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and six colors)

    9. A casual T-shirt so you'll always have some type of positive affirmation while you're out handling business (or not doing anything at all).

    10. A reversible pendant tassel necklace to give a bit of a vintage vibe to your already awesome look!

    Price: $9.99 (available in four colors)

    11. A harmonica with a classic tone and brass reeds for all the budding musicians who wanna learn a cool instrument that isn't a whole guitar or piano.

    Promising review: "It has a nice tone, is easy to navigate, and do basic bend. A gun gift for youngsters; instant and enthusiastic musical bedlam! For more seasoned players, this is a great choice when out and about and inspiration pounces. A lot of fun for a little green. I really like the Fender branding, too." —A Carver

    Price: $11.99 (available in seven keys)

    12. A set of synthetic brushes to start you out on your magical makeup journey without ever irritating sensitive skin.

    Includes an angled, flat angled, round, tapered, blending, angled eyeshadow, classic eyeshadow, concealer, precise, detail, angled detail, classic detail, and eyeliner brushes.

    Promising review: "Beautiful brush set! The product came exactly as depicted. The rose gold is very nice, the hairs are very soft and malleable, and the stems are long enough to sit perfectly in my makeup brush holder. I'm a novice at makeup, as well as using brushes, and I found it very convenient that the seller included a small guide on what the brushes are designed for!" —Jaime Lagunes

    Price: $10.99 (for a pack of 14)

    13. A door seal that'll prevent all the cold air from outside getting into your nice and comfortable apartment, transforming your feet to moving icicles.

    Promising review: "I put this on the door of my daughter's nursery because we had over an inch gap and too much sound came through while she naps. Worked well to tamp sounds and was very easy to install." —D. Kerr

    Price: $11.45+ (available in two sizes)

    14. An exfoliating foot peel mask made with lactic and aloe vera extracts for the smooth feet you've been waiting all winter to show off.

    Promising review: "Oh my word! I can't express enough how spectacular this foot mask works. For years, my husband has complained about his feet cracking and being rough. We have tried just about every foot cream out there, but this has been our solution all along! He followed the directions and the dead skin started falling off about three days later. Rather disgusting, if I may, but beautiful all at once! Now I don't have to sleep with sandpaper anymore." —Kaitlen D

    Price: $19.95 (for a pack of two)

    15. A copy of The Story of Ferdinand to prove that even if you're huge and grumpy sometimes, you can be capable of incredible kindness and beauty.

    Promising review: "My children have always loved the story of Ferninand. The story line teaches kids it is ok to be different and find yourself, regardless of what the opinion is of others. Ferdinand is a classic that should be in every home library. The book has a powerful message, but is easy for early readers. It is one of the first books my children learn to read. Reading good literature with an easy to comprehend story line is a great place to start your young readers. The simple words do not deter from the powerful message received." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $3.43 (also available on Kindle)

    16. A set of Nike socks with performance cushions so the balls of your feet won't be tired after a hard round of basketball practice.

    Promising review: "Comfy socks that fit well in my workout shoes as well as my everyday shoes. They also wash well. Bleach does not wear out the sock quickly which is a plus for workout socks. Love them and will likely buy more pairs in the future." —Midwest Mom

    Price: $20 (available in sizes M–L and two colors)

    17. A copy of Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood that'll shed light on Trevor Noah's humble beginnings as being an interracial child born in Apartheid, and how his mother's strength molded him into the person he is today.

    Promising review: "Born a Crime is a must read book that will totally turn your worldview upside down when it comes to race and racism, as well as being an incredible story of both Trevor Noah and his mother, as this remarkable woman provided him with a life, an education, and experiences that belied their nominal station in Apartheid and post-Apartheid South Africa. Apartheid carried the concept of race and racism to such an illogical and convoluted extreme, that it was both truly comical, and at the same time truly tragic for the nation as a whole. As well as his fascinating personal story, this book delves into the entirety of the South African organization and culture, so you will get an profound appreciation of what it meant to live under Apartheid, from black to colored to white, and every shade in between." —Camp Runamok

    Price: $16.90 (also available on Kindle)

    18. A de-matting comb with dual heads that'll gently untangle mats for all of your furry friends who have thick double coats and need a thorough brush now and then.

    Promising review: "I have two Newfoundlands and the summer shedding has just begun. They shed faster than my daily vacuuming can keep up with, but the summer shedding made it infinitely worse. In about an hour I had pulled off a pile of hair as big as my 150 lbs. puppy. He is happier and cooler, and I am happy that all that fur is not on my floors, clothes, furniture, and walls!" —Meg

    Price: $14.99

    19. A quick-dry top coat that'll make your nails pop, shine, and last so much longer without chipping — even if you wash your hands all day.

    Promising review: "The best top coat I have ever used! It's so shiny, dries super fast and makes my nail polish last for days while still looking freshly done. I'm a waitress at a breakfast place and I'm constantly washing my hands, clearing and wiping down tables, etc., and this still makes my polish last for days." —Amy

    Price: $6.09

    20. A set of Crayola Kids' Paint to entertain your little ones when the artistic mood strikes.

    Promising review: "This is a great product for young children. It's easy to clean up and get off the skin. I love that my granddaughter can have a fun time and I don't have to worry about any permanent messes or stains." —JG (Highflyer)

    Price: $7.70
