    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 tube of cruelty-free Acure Cleansing Gel to gently remove makeup, dirt, and oil from your pores, because clear skin is definitely a goal for 2018.

    Promising review: "My go-to cleanser. I was blessed with great genes (not) and grew up with very severe, cystic acne that has since calmed down in my late twenties. However, I still struggle with regular, smaller breakouts with the occasional hormonal flare up and my skin is naturally quite oily. Medicated facial cleansers (salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, etc.) severely dry out my skin, which in turn makes it freak out and overproduce oil, resulting in even more breakouts. Only after turning to milder, more natural cleansers have I seen a marked difference in my skin. This keeps my breakouts at bay, removes ALL makeup with one scrub and does not leave my skin dry. It feels clean but not tight. My face has never been happier! I use this in conjunction with the Acure Organics Brightening Facial Scrub (one in the morning, one at night) and I can't stray β€” my face loves the combination and beneficial ingredients!" β€”ML

    Price: $9.49

    2. A bottle of liquid car polish for gently making your beloved car shine like the sun β€” without the use of wax.

    It can be used on fiberglass, airplanes, motorcycles, and chrome. It can also protect against salt spray, bird poop, tree sap, and road tar!

    Promising review: "I've been waxing cars for 50 years and I've tried all of the major brands and many of expensive premium products, but nothing works as well as Nu Finish. I've used it on everything from Hondas to BMWs, it's truly outstanding. I just used it on a Jaguar XKR with piano-black paint, and the results were outstanding. It goes on easy, buffs off even easier, and leaves an incredible shine that protects for months in Southern California smog and sunshine." β€”BlueDrySky

    Price: $8.21

    3. A fashionable rope bag that'll hold all of your things without giving you a backache after coming home from your various adventures.,

    Promising review: "I love this backpack! I had bought another sling backpack but returned it because it felt bulky and wasn't comfortable on my shoulder. This backpack is the opposite; very comfortable to wear and I love the rope sling. I like how the company has so many different color varieties. I think it will withstand a lot of wear and tear. I plan on taking it on a trip to Disney soon. Also, it can hold an iPhone 7 Plus phone in a case in the bottom zipper pocket." β€”Ellie

    Price: $37.99 (available in 35 colors)

    4. A cooling helmet liner with UPF 45 protection and moisture-wicking technology to wear outside when the heat just gets to be too much, but you don't have time for your sweat to fall into your eyes (or face).,

    Promising review: "Because I'm a big guy, and bald, I tend to sweat a lot. I wear baseball caps when I go out and the sweat will soak through the cap and make sweat stains. This helmet liner sits above the ears and is nice and thin. It's very comfy. It's thin enough to wear under a baseball cap, which I'm very happy about. It soaks up the sweat and my baseball cap doesn't look like it just pissed itself, lol." β€”J. Lucas

    Price: $14.99

    5. A set of paint brushes that'll be able to handle acrylic and oil-based paints so you can have the tools to create your next Basquiat-level masterpiece!

    The set includes 25 nylon, bristle, sponge, and camel hair brushes that are compatible with acrylic, oil, watercolor, and gouache paints!.

    Promising review: "A good variety of brushes β€” from coarse to fine, wide to narrow. I have used them now for paint and glue (priming for paint). They all clean up well and seem solidly constructed." β€”Lyssandra

    Price: $6.99 (for a pack of 25)

    6. A pair of baby dresses, because your little kid deserves to look super freaking cute even when they're making a mess in their play pen.

    Promising review: "These dresses are so soft and sweet on my two-year-old granddaughter. I’ll definitely be able to put black leggings under them during the winter and get another season out of them." β€”Leigh B

    Price: $5.17+ (available in sizes 0–24 months and eight colors)

    7. A pair of stretchy bike shorts that'll take you to the next level of athleisure and keep the chafing at bay.,

    Promising review: "LOVE LOVE LOVE. I bought three pairs and wear them under my dresses and skirts. They are cotton with the right amount of stretch. They don't shrink in the dryer and are a nice length. I have toddlers who like to lift my skirt so these are a must when I leave the house with my children. They really do fit true to size." β€”Kait Burke

    Price: $4.50+ (available in sizes S–XXL and two colors)

    8. A stroller organizer with a stroller hook to store all the essentials for you and your tiny tyke without digging through BAGS of baby accessories just for that teething ring they can't do without.

    It can hold toys, sippy cups, books, keys, phones, drinks and diapers.

    Promising review: "This stroller organizer is a lifesaver! The pockets to hold beverages are very deep (my Chicco stroller beverage holders are very shallow and I cannot use them). I am able to hold all the basics that I need for myself and my baby in one place. And, the velcro is very strong and the organizer itself is very durable, so I'm able to keep it perpetually strapped onto the stroller even when I fold the stroller away. It is a great organizer for busy parents and I highly recommend!" β€”Mamba172

    Price: $31.99

    9. A handy steering wheel cover that'll provide some extra grip (and style) for your dope whip.

    It has an odor-free and skid-proof lining for an all-around better driving experience.

    Promising review: "I wanted a bigger grip on my steering wheel but also wanted to protect the leather of my steering wheel as well. This fits a BMW (non M sport wheel) so well, and the increased grip is fantastic. It protects your wheel and the feeling of the leather is really nice in your hand. The notch on the top also allows you to physically feel the top of the wheel without looking. It is non-slip and really looks nice. I know people have criticized the folding of the cover when it is sent, but it's folded with the back of the cover being the inner crease so really you won't notice any creases very much. In fact, I don't notice them at all, so it is not a problem for me." β€”kkrazy

    Price: $21.99 (avaialble in seven colors)

    10. A set of (connectable) boat bath toys, because bath time is about to be LIT with the little boat train your kid is gonna put together during their scrub-a-dub-dub!

    The boats are numbered so they can even practice counting and patterns while getting all clean!

    Promising review: "I was handed down a water table for the kids this summer. There were a couple toys but you need boats if there are water and bridges to go under! These are advertised as bath toys but they are perfect for water tables too. There are little numbers on the top of each so I'm going to count them as a learning tool too. Great add-on toy." β€”Michelle

    Price: $5.99 (for a pack of six)

    11. A tub of natural cocoa butter for moisturizing your dry skin so you can continue on with the rest of your summer glow in peace.,

    Promising review: "My face and skin absolutely love this item! It’s a nice light scent, a thicker cream-like texture. I apply a little to my face after using an organic face wash and my face has never felt better. I usually have dry to oily skin so this was perfect." β€”Leeza S

    Price: $12.95

    12. A copy of How To Make Shit Happen by Sean Whalen that'll show you how to actually follow through with the hundreds of plans you have in your head that you just can't seem to execute for the life of you.

    Promising review: "I love the way he talks to me! It is quick, easy to read, simple to follow, raw, harsh, and motivating. I absolutely loved this book and for me, it could not have come at a better time. Not sure what in the universe brought this particular book into my hands, but I am thankful. Love this, needed this, and I grateful for the experiences that pushed Sean to create a magnificent book." β€”Gabrielle

    Price: $3.59

    13. A shampoo brush for exfoliating your scalp and helping remove dandruff and product from your hair, leaving it squeaky clean.,

    Promising review: "This is a wonderful addition to washing my hair and scalp thoroughly. It is soft enough not to hurt your head but firm enough to do a good job cleaning your scalp. It is very easy to hold between your fingers and palm of your hand. I wasn't expecting it to be that comfortable and thought I might have a learning curve but I got it the first time very easily. I don't think I will ever wash my hair again without using it. I will be buying a few more to keep on hand. Thanks!" β€”KG

    Price: $7.98 (available in two colors).

    14. A mesh shower caddy with an added hook to hold your dorm key while you get ready for a long day of lectures. Here's to another semester.

    It also has eight different compartments to hold all of your stuff!

    Promising review: "I bought this for my daughter. She needed a shower caddy for her summer camp since the shower facilities were separate from the cabins. She was able to put all of her bathing and shower products in the caddy and carry back and forth from the cabins to the shower facilities. She really liked it because she could put all of her soaps, hair products and brushes in the roomy carrier. I thought the price was very reasonable." β€”Mike D.

    Price: $7.99+ (available in seven colors)

    15. A bottle of Herstyler Argan Oil Hair Serum made with a mix of aloe vera and argan oil to transform dry, damaged hair by giving it tons of moisture and shine.

    Promising review: "I found this product through a Buzzfeed article for those with frizzy hair and THIS PRODUCT DID NOT DISAPPOINT, PEOPLE! I put this serum through the ringer; I got this to stand up to Bay Area fog AND the nasty, humid heat wave we got a couple weeks ago. No frizz, no extra curls. Nothing! On top of that, it made my hair super glossy. I'm very impressed. Heads up though, a little goes a long way. One pump is enough to cover my hair and I have medium length hair. Also, it can make your hair look oily if you use too much. I do have oily hair so working on my ends first then working to my roots works for me." β€”Amazon Customer

    Price: $11.99

    16. A welcoming doormat made with coconut coir to catch all the dust and dirt from all the shoes coming in and out of your house (all while being totally eco-friendly)!

    Promising review: "Great heavy-duty mat. Arrived rolled to ensure it will lay flat upon opening. The font is beautiful and welcoming to guests." β€”Amazon Customer

    Price: $19.95

    17. A trendy saucer chair, because your friends need a place to comfortably sit and these things are perfect to pull out and then fold away when you're done.

    Promising review: "Absolutley no complaints! No set up required! Just take it out and unfold it. It is comfy. True to size. And very chic! I love it in my living room AND as a chair for my desk. Want to get more!" β€”Emily Autumn

    Price: $39.99 (available in six colors)

    18. A super cool dog ball launcher that'll be great for taking fetch sessions to new heights while keeping your hands (thankfully) slobber-free.

    It has a cupped end so you can pick up the ball from the ground without actually touching it! Groundbreaking.

    Promising review: "All of our neighbors with large dogs have this product, I finally caved and I'm glad I did! I have a six month old Golden Retriever and I was able to run him quickly since I was able to throw so much further. We will be buying again. Great price too, same product at my local Walmart is $11. The tennis ball it comes with has a great bounce, I don't plan on letting my dog keep the ball when we aren't using the launcher, I'm sure he would shred it quickly!" β€”G M Wikum

    Price: $9.92

    19. A set of floating shelves to place on your walls so you can display vacation pictures and books to make you look super intelligent in front of your friends and fam.

    Promising review: "Very cute rustic wood shelves. They look perfect above my TV. Great for tiny knickknacks." β€”Amazon Customer

    Price: $24.99+ (for a set of three, available in three styles)

    20. A pack of hypoallergenic pimple patches made with tea tree and calendula oil that'll magically vacuum out all the excess oil (and whatever your whiteheads are made of) so breakouts can be a thing of the past.,

    Promising review: "Wow. I was SO skeptical about this product but bought it anyways because of the good reviews and how desperate I am to find a quick fix to my acne. This product is incredible. I had two large zits on my jaw line put the patch on over night and they are 90% better after I woke up the next morning and I can easily cover up what’s left with makeup. I 100% recommend this." β€”Marie

    Price: $12.50
