    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 sweat-resistant sunscreen with SPF 30 that'll prevent your kid's sensitive skin from getting burned.

    amazon.com

    The sunscreen doesn't have any fragrances to irritate sensitive skin, and it's sweat and water-resistant for up to 80 minutes. It's also free of oxybenzone, which is toxic to marine life! Let's not kill the animals please. Check out a BuzzFeeder's post for more info on chemical-free sunscreens like this one!

    Promising review: "Hands down the best sunscreen I've encountered. It absorbs well, reapplies well, isn't greasy, and does a great job on my very active toddler. We live in an area that has sunshine 300 days of the year so it's critical. We have one at school and one at home" —ReviewMore

    Price: $14.98

    2. A cute self-feeding utensil set for your kiddo who's just learning how to use a fork like the rest of civilized society. Hopefully they'll be ready before the State dinner you have planned.

    amazon.com

    The fork and spoon both have choke protection barriers as well as a BPA-free short handle, making it easier for their little fat fingers to hold.

    Promising review: "I’m just getting my seven-month-old used to eating purées and the spoon and fork are perfect! I’m constantly on edge about safety things in general, and adding a long pointy plastic thing that I try to navigate into her mouth while she unpredictably flings herself in all directions is no exception. I didn’t want to spend the money on these but I’m glad I did because I can feed her or let her feed herself without worrying she’s going to get hurt. Good quality and washes easily. Get it!" —Sizzle

    Price: $14.99

    3. A Honeywell Tower Fan with a whopping eight speeds, oscillation control, and auto shutoff so you won't actually melt like the Wicked Witch of the West during these long summer nights.

    amazon.com

    This tower fan is super quiet and has a remote control so you don't have to actually get up from the couch in order to turn up the cool air.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this fan! I wanted to wait until we had a very hot and steamy day here in New England to truly test it before submitting a review. My bedroom is about 200 square feet and this does the trick keeping a stream of cool air aimed at my chair when I'm working during the day, or at my bed when I'm sleeping at night. I swear this blows air that's on the cool side. Not as cool as AC, obviously, but a nice pocket of air that's cooler than the room's temperature. Love the oscillating feature, too, as well as having a little remote handy next to my bed. For just over $50 it is a great value and definitely an alternative option for staying cool if you don't want to or cannot use an A/C unit. My mother also just ordered one for her bedroom after testing mine." —GoRetroGirl

    Price: $56 (also available in white).

    4. A pair of Bluetooth headphones to place right at your neck so you can easily answer your phone in the middle of a jog or a rather intense jam session.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These headphones not only sound great but look great. They have a great range from highs to lows when it comes to music — they even have a pretty good bass. The case is a pretty cool thing that they added, it fits the headphones and accessories. These headphones also are simple to use, easy to connect, and an overall great buy for the price." —Jose Fernandez

    Get them from Amazon for $27.99.

    5. A stunning V-neck maxi dress with pockets for a fashionable (and cool) outfit, perfect for combating the blistering summer heat.

    amazon.com

    The dress has pockets, and is made with spandex, which means it can stretch to high heaven for extra comfort.

    Promising review: "So in love with this dress. The fabric is super soft and flowy and completely flattering, plus it has POCKETS!" —Jen

    Price: $15.99+ (available in sizes S–3X and 16 colors).

    6. An elongated brush to deeply clean all of your spare wine bottles and water thermoses without working up a sweat.

    amazon.com

    The 16-inch brush has extra-wide bristles and a sure grip to scrub any leftover scum in the bottom of bottles.

    Promising review: "I had been searching for a 'skinny' bottle brush to use to clean my hummingbird feeders (and decorative wine bottles for craft use). This bottle brush is perfect — the bristles are soft enough to fold tightly against the handle for easy insertion into the bottle, but stiff enough to actually SCRUB the inside of the bottle. It doesn't end in that twisted 'bulb' of bristle and wire that makes inserting most 'skinny' bottle brushes into a slender bottle impossible. Excellent product!" —NonFiction Hound

    Price: $7.99

    7. A silicone egg poacher for getting perfectly cooked eggs every damn time, even in the microwave!

    amazon.com

    It has two cavities and a lid for easy steaming in order to get a runny yolk, and can also be used to make custards or cheesecakes. It's even dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "I bought this silicon egg poacher two days ago and tried it this morning when I was preparing breakfast. This item is very nice. For the first time I was able to make eggs without breaking them. It was super easy to clean and what I really like about it is that it is both microwave and dishwasher safe." —Arlene Sharon

    Price: $9.99 (available in four colors).

    8. A cat toy filled with addictive catnip so your kitty can literally drive themselves crazy over a yellow banana while you take photos.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    The toy is 100 percent organic and has a fun texture your cat is gonna love.

    Promising review: "This is the closest thing you can get to a 'sure thing' in a cat toy. I have probably bought three bunches of these so far for my cats, shelter or foster donations, and gifts. Most cats that are six to nine months and older react to catnip; can see the color yellow; and enjoy the 'bearhug' (simultaneously kicking and biting). All three of mine are banana fans to different extents. One likes to sit and lick it. Eww. Another won't look for it, but if she stumbles upon it will look around furtively and then sit on it for hours, eventually dragging it to her 'secret' hidey hole for a good hour of cheeking. Kitty number three finds the banana to be an aggressor that needs to be pursued, taken down, and detained. Did you know bananas can fly? Cats, too. That catnip is funny stuff if you inhale. Which I do not, obviously." —Kalatraza

    Price: $5.99

    9. A bright, insulated water bottle, because you get ridiculously thirsty during your morning runs and you'd like to have a refreshing sip now and then.

    amazon.com

    It has double wall insulation to keep water cold twice as long, as well as a self-sealing jet valve so water won't spill all over the place.

    Promising review: "I love these. I bought three (one for cycling and two for running) to replace bottles that required me to pull up the valve top so I could drink (one had busted). I only wish I had replaced them earlier. These make taking a quick drink super easy, especially hiking on a bike. Just point and squeeze. I have found that I am drinking way more water while cycling with this bottle and that is a good thing. Now I'm debating buying the larger size! I have run for over an hour in warm temps and the water is still very cold at the end, even if my ice cubes have melted." —James W.

    Price: $12.95 (available in 15 colors).

    10. A LED reading light with three modes of brightness so you won't fuck up your already bad eyesight by reading War and Peace in your dark room at 3 a.m.

    amazon.com

    It has a touch switch as well as a rechargeable USB battery so your light won't ever go out, The Smiths style.

    Promising review: "I really like this. I use it at my desk where it puts out just the right amount of light at night. I love that you just touch it to get it to light and to go between dim, brighter and brightest. The neck easily twists to any position you need. I use mine clipped to a rack that holds all my charging cords but it can be used just standing up. This light is rechargeable so no batteries necessary. Honestly, I really haven't found one thing that I don't like about this light." —M. Brown

    Price: $13.99 (also available in black).

    11. A car charger that'll blend seamlessly with your cigarette lighter, because sleek is always the name of the game!

    amazon.com

    The adapter has scratch-resistant technology, which means if you just can't get your USB in the slot the first time, it won't look like a cat scratching post!

    Promising review: "I recently broke my old car charger and couldn't find one that didn't take forever to charge. As I was looking to order another new one, found this one and thought I'd try it. So glad I did! This charger charges fast, so even if you're doing a short drive you can get more power to phone battery." —Shari

    Price: $12.99 (also available in red).

    12. A pair of Teva Olowahu sandals with a lightweight foam base so your feet can feel like they're walking on a fucking cloud while you're going off on your next adventure.

    amazon.com

    The sandals have a water-ready polyester webbing that'll dry super fast so no wrinkly toes!

    Promising review: "Love these; I buy a new pair every year or three. They're comfy, last forever, and they don't bother my plantar fasciitis. I have flat pronated feet and the extra strap is not only pretty, it also helps keep everything inside the sandal where it belongs. I bought some $60 high-end flip-flops recently and I ended up going back to these." —AmbiNitro

    Price: $14.97+ (available in sizes 5–11 and 37 colors).

    13. A useful air pressure corkscrew to easily remove the cork from your favorite bottle of rosé with a few pumps!

    amazon.com

    Just poke the cork with the needle, pump the top, and pull! It also comes with a foil cutter!

    Promising review: "This is THE easiest-to-use cork remover I’ve ever used! No muscles needed! Included is the foil remover and after using that, line up the ‘needle’ of the device over the cork, press down the plunger a few times. The air pressure builds in the bottle, and the cork rises up and pops out. Ta da! NO cork pieces floating in the bottle. The round plastic circle pushes the cork off the ‘needle.’ Easy peasy. Works every time!" —J. Russell

    Price: $11.99

    14. A copy of Turtles All The Way Down, which follows Aza, who is learning how to deal with being perfect for literally everyone, even herself, while trying to figure out the mystery behind a fugitive billionaire.

    amazon.com

    I mean John Green wrote it, so expect teenagers on a quest to find themselves.

    Promising review: "This book destroyed me in the best possible way. I couldn't put it down. As someone who has anxiety, this novel expresses a lot of the feelings I have that I could never quite put into words. I've read all of John Green's books and I was worried I wouldn't appreciate this one as much now that I don't exactly fit into the 'young adult' audience, but I was blown away. Read it." —Courtney Caro

    Price: $14.48+.

    15. An indoor and outdoor waterproof tray so you don't have to bring sand and grime inside your pristine beach house. And if all else fails, you can just use it as a lunch tray.

    amazon.com

    It protects any surface from spills or dirt!

    Promising review: "These are great, economical multi-purpose trays. I have one for under my dog's bowls and one for muddy boots. Easy to clean, good rim to keep spills or mud from making their way to the floor." —A.W.

    Price: $8.31

    16. A set of stainless steel straws that'll help you reduce your plastic print, and can be re-used over and over again!

    amazon.com

    Includes four straight and bent metal straws, as well as removable silicone tips to protect your sensitive lips and teeth!

    Promising review: "The more I use these straws, the more I like them. They're super flexible, long, thick-walled and appear durable with a pipe cleaner. They come in nice colors and are reusable. What is not to like? They beat other straws we have used and it appears we will have these a long time." —Cajun Gourmet

    Price: $8.99

    17. An oil and vinegar bottle, making it super simple to add the right amount of liquid to your stir fry without making a mess.

    amazon.com

    It has a pouring spot to make dispensing easy and can hold up to 16 ounces.

    Promising review: "This works great and helps speed things up so I can quickly add olive oil to the pan without digging into the cupboard and unscrewing the cap. Just what I wanted." —Cara L

    Price: $4.89

    18. A handy dandy corn stripper, because you have braces and you'd rather not have kernels stuck in your teeth at the barbecue. Corn on the cob, who?

    amazon.com

    Plus, it's dishwasher safe.

    Promising review: "As someone who has permanent retainers attached to my teeth after years of orthodontics, I love this product. I can't easily eat corn on the cob, and previously having to cut it off the ear was annoying. Now, it's painless. I wish I knew about this product 10 years ago, so I could enjoy corn with my braces on! It's very easy to use and I'll be recommending this to everyone." —Lauren

    Price: $10.32

    19. An adventure scrapbook to document all of your cool travels and intimate moments with the people you love, just like the old couple from Up! Tears are down from your face, I can tell.

    amazon.com

    It can be used as a sentimental keepsake to show your family, and even comes with cool postcards to spark a vacation!

    Promising review: "This adventure book is really cute. I bought this because my boyfriend and I just moved into our first apartment together! It's a very exciting time for us and this adventure book was the perfect start to our new adventure. The brown pages are big enough to fit a good amount on each page. There are no plastic protectors. It is more like a scrapbook than a photo album. I love it. Well worth it!" —sara pepas

    Price: $19.99

    20. A copy of drizzy Drake's Scorpion , because you really do need to be all up in your feelings this summer and the bravest scorpio of them all has provided a soundtrack.

    amazon.com

    It includes bops like "Rachet Happy Birthday," "In My Feelings," and "After Dark."

    Promising review: "A balance of the rap side of Drake and the singing side of Drake. Finally a two-disc album. The production is on point if you ask me. I liked how the album experimented with sound. The lyrics tell a story about his life also things he actually experienced in the past." —Alonzo Charles

    Price: $17.98
