    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 cooling towel to give your sweaty head some relief on a hot and humid day. All you have to do is run it under cold water before you go outside, wring it out, and place it around your neck!

    Promising review: "A nice cool cloth to help keep you cool on these awful hot, humid days. It dries pretty fast and folds away. I do get a few odd looks from people, but that's ok, at least I'm comfortable." β€”dep

    Price: $6.95 (available in 10 colors).

    2. An insulated ice cream tub so you can keep your freshly-made treat from getting gross freezer burn in the ice box!


    Promising review: "These are perfect for storing ice cream! Holds the two quarts I make with my ice cream maker. It's so easy to scoop the ice cream out. We bought the purple ones and they are so cute in the freezer. We plan on purchasing a couple more since I want to start making frozen yogurt too." β€”Eclectic Buyer

    Price: $14.99

    3. A finger stretcher that'll strengthen your grip and forearm muscles, because you'd really like to avoid getting carpal tunnel at 25.

    Promising review: "A great way to build finger and hand strength. I use them for rock climbing and I've noticed a significant improvement in my grip strength. It's fun to do as a side workout when you're watching a movie or traveling." β€”Kevin S.

    Price: $9.99

    4. A retro air fryer, because you'd love to make your famous wings without burning them in oil. This thing comes with a timer and you don't even NEED oil to achieve crispy perfection!

    Promising review: "I wanted an alternative to deep frying and decided to get this. It works great without using so much oil. Works as advertised and is a prefect size. Even my awesome chef of a boyfriend loves it!" β€”Halie

    Price: $49.99 (available in five colors).

    5. A pet hair clipper with four different attachments, because your pup needs some relief from the heat and β€” let's be real β€” the groomer is way too fucking expensive. You love Jimmy, but you love being able to put a roof over his head more.

    It includes a blade guard, storage case, blade oil, cleaning brush, scissors, a styling comb, a mirror, and four guide comb attachments!

    Promising review: "I called around to get a quote on how much a haircut would cost for my labradoodle pup. It ranged from $70 to $85. Yikes! I have never cut a dog's hair before. I have only used it once, and already got my money's worth. It's quiet and cuts hair well. It comes with a carrying case, oil, and brush to keep it sharp. The razor attachments really helped me even up her coat. I used the scissors to cut hair on her paws. It's pretty powerful! I definitely recommend this product." β€”Eskimogall

    Price: $27.29

    6. A stainless steel paper towel holder with a spring-activated arm to give you easy-tear sheets every time without even trying!

    Promising review: "I'm impressed! We recently remodeled our kitchen with a beautiful backsplash tile design. Our appliances are all stainless steel and this goes very well with our new decor. This is much easier to use than I anticipated. A perfect one-handed operation and works very well with the extra large, select-a-size rolls that I get from Costco. A definite winner for our family." β€”Because I said so

    Price: $24.99

    7. A kit with Bonsai tree seedlings so you can grow four different kinds of peace (hehe) and serenity.


    Promising review: "I really love this product! it was a beautiful gift and surprise for my husband who loves plants. It's a fun activity with a great result that stays in your home. Definitely made our apartment nicer!" β€”Gal Ben Dor

    Price: $24.99

    8. A copy of Between Harlem And Heaven to educate yourself on the varied cuisine of Afro-Asian-American cooking so all of your friend dinners can be lit AF.

    Promising review: "This is such an AWESOME cookbook! I love the written pieces as much as I love the pictures and recipes. The authors combine American Soul Food with foods from other countries with recipes requiring ingredients I've never heard of. But, those I won't make right away lololol. This is a beautifully developed item, and I'm so very glad I found it!!" β€”Gospelqueen

    Price: $24.99 (also available on Kindle).

    9. A tube of Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner so you can get the sharpest, clearest wing, thanks to its felt tip and pigmented formula!

    Promising review: "I had to write a review because I typically have problems with eyeliners. My eyes tend to be very watery and easily irritated. I have tried every liner out there but this is the best! It lasts all day, even through my watery eyes, and it doesn't irritate my eyes at all. Worth every penny and more." β€”Amazon Customer

    Price: $4.19 (available in three colors).

    10. A wireless charging pod (compatible with both iOS and Androids) to quickly and safely get your phone back to 100% without the hassle of cords.

    Promising review: "RAVPower products are made well and deliver. Great innovation and product build. You get what you pay for with their products. The vertical stand is nice in that it allows you to glance at pop-up messages without having to pick up the phone. Unlike some flat, round chargers, the two coils in this vertical charger make it easy to hit the coil charging spot. The charging status light is bright, but not too obnoxious." β€”Thomas J. Smith

    Price: $45.99

    11. A three-piece sheet set made with wrinkle-resistant fibers that'll keep you nice and cozy the next time you decide to change your bedding.

    Includes one fitted sheet, one flat sheet, and one pillowcase.

    Promising review: "These sheets are comfortable, smooth, cool, and very attractive. I also bought the comforter and drapes. With my platform bed, the comforter is just the right size." β€”Juanita M.

    Price: $15.99+ (available in twin, full, queen, and king and two colors).

    12. A lace-hemmed turtleneck dress to rock when you've got an important function to attend and you would LOVE to be able to serve LEWKS for your blog.,

    Promising review: "Absolutely loved this dress! I wore it to a funeral and got compliments on my dress all day long. The length was good, and it was flowy and fit all at the same time." β€”Alana

    Price: $15.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and eight colors).

    13. A solar-powered fountain pump because you dream of waking up with birds singing to you at a fountain like Snow White (while being eco-friendly at the same time).

    Promising review: "I have been looking for solar power birdbaths then thought how neat to design my own birdbath and need to find a solar power fountain to make it complete! So I ordered this product, how easy to put together with different fountain heads to flow the water! As soon as I took it outside in the daylight it started to vibrate. I followed the directions and filled the birdbath with water and it started to flow. I highly recommend this product if you're looking for a unique design and a product that does work." β€”LindaP

    Price: $11.68

    14. A vintage-y Kitchen Aid spatula (with a heat resistance of up to 450 degrees) so all of your burgers can be reliably flipped when you say so...and not a moment after!

    Promising review: "I can say without reservation that this spatula is wonderful. I've just finished renovating my dream kitchen and was thrilled to find these kitchen tools in this blue. This turner is strong, thick, heavy duty, and absolutely what I was expecting from the brand. Plus, it's retro blue." β€”Established 1970

    Price: $11.73 (available in five colors).

    15. A hydration backpack so you can take sips whenever you're dying of thirst during your workout, yet won't feel like stopping while you're in the zone.

    Promising review: "I love that it’s lightweight, fits snugly against my body, and is compact! I actually bought this to carry water around for both me and my dog. I have a Shih Tzu that overheats easily and needs water to drink while we are out walking. Between this and the cooling vest I bought for him to wear, he will be able to stay cool and hydrated." β€”TuckersMom

    Price: $16.88

    16. A bamboo serving tray β€” being able to eat breakfast in bed with bae sounds ideal, especially when you won't get food on your new (and super clean) bedsheets.

    Promising review: "I bought two of these and we use them every day for eating. My 10-year-old daughter even keeps her water bottle on it while on her lap, and it doesn't fall over. It's slightly too narrow for our large dinner plates, but they do fit. They're exactly what we were looking for!" β€”KristaT

    Price: $10.01

    17. A bottle of Cetaphil Hydrating Lotion that'll moisturize your dry skin with the help of hyaluronic acid while preventing future breakouts.

    Promising review: "While I personally feel like I may need something slightly thicker, this has done a pretty remarkable job. My favorite aspect of it is that previous moisturizers have felt too thick, almost to the consistency of an old sunscreen, meanwhile this has always felt like a refreshing layer of moisture on my face." β€”Greg LeClair

    Price: $10.09

    18. A de-shedding brush to remove excess fur from your dog's coat in-between grooming appointments. It features small teeth-like ridges that won't hurt your best friend, but subtly trim his body so he's always Instagram-ready!

    Promising review: "This thing legit rocks! I have two dogs made entirely of fur and a medium haired house panther, and it works phenomenally on them all. Word to the wise, brush them outdoors, because the hair will FLY!" β€”Singrandi

    Price: $17.95

    19. A battery-powered hair remover for trimming your sensitive chin or neck without all the irritation and razor bumps!

    Promising review: "I couldn't wait to try this. Straight out of the box, battery in and on my face. It's very smooth, no pain whatsoever β€” and unlike the little razor pen thing I bought at the pharmacy, this doesn't leave your skin red and aggravated-looking. I will definitely be using this!" β€”Tricia C. Walters

    Price: $18.99

    20. A handy headband with moisture-wicking fabric to catch all your sweat while going for a run.

    Promising review: "Today is a normal hot and steamy 94-degree day in Houston TX. Anyone who lives in here or has visited knows that this is one of the hottest places in the United States! I decided this would be the perfect day for me to test drive this product. Boy, this thing over exceeded my expectations, not that they were low. I am truly impressed with how dry my hair was after hours in the Houston heat. I will never use another headband for all my workout routines, including riding my bike or getting my yoga on. I wish the workout clothes I had on today would have been made from the same material. Thank you for this wonderful creation and I highly recommend it!" β€”Liz

    Price: $7.95 (available in nine colors).

    21. A three-tier cooling rack with non-stick coating that'll keep all your baked goods in one place while they get down to room temperature.

    Promising review: "This is a baker's dream! I've been dying for one of these racks for a long time, and the price simply couldn't be beat. I was so pleased at the quality of this rack. It's very sturdy and has an added support for extra heavy things (pies, small casseroles). I've only used it for cookies so far, but it has worked beautifully for my purposes." β€”GertrollaB

    Price: $14.21
