    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 car detailer spray that'll wipe away fingerprints, smudges, and dust while enhancing your whip's color and shine. Summer is gonna be lit for you and your car!,

    Promising review: "My saving grace! I live in California and this is my go-to product for cleaning my car without having to use water (darn drought). This stuff powered through a month's worth of dust on my car with no problem at all. It's wonderful for touch-ups or even weekly maintenance. I have NEVER once taken my car to get washed in the 16 months that I've had it. I use this religiously and my paint looks amazing, the smell is nice too." —Melanie M. Lee

    Price: $5

    2. A long maxi dress for keeping it cool and classy while strolling through a field of flowers during a cool photoshoot.

    Promising review: "Very simple and cute for an afternoon party or day date. It can be dressed up with heels and jewelry!" —Elizabeth J. Tamminga

    Price: $9.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and three colors)

    3. A basting brush made out of silicone to evenly sauce your barbecue ribs without making a hot mess.

    The bristles are heat-resistant up to 600 degrees and are dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "I was sick of my old pastry brush (and the bristles that kept coming loose), so I decided to give this model a try. The silicone doesn't look like it would be as good at brushing on butter or egg wash, but it really is. The silicone is much easier to clean than a brush with bristles, too." —L. Galek

    Price: $7.99+ (also available in large)

    4. A pack of outdoor incense sticks, because you're trying to be the most zen human being all summer 2018 and that requires smelling relaxing scents in your backyard AND keeping the mosquitos away.

    Available in citronella, rosemary, thyme, and Brazilian andiroba oil.

    Promising review: "I used this during an outdoor evening surprise birthday party in Florida while on a river (so you know its flooded with bugs) and everyone kept asking me where I got this. We were able to enjoy our steaks and margaritas outdoors without worrying about getting bitten by mosquitos. I liked the scent, too." —Tina PrimePick

    Price: $14 (for a pack of three)

    5. An adorable mini life jacket to protect your little one from being dunked underwater when they don't wanna.

    It'll fit any kid from 30-50 pounds!

    Promising review: "We love this for our little mermaid! We were struggling this summer with pool parties because she wanted to splash around with the big kids and hated the baby rafts. The first four to five times she used it we kept her in our arms and taught her to keep her head up. After that, she got the hang of it and can float freely now! Her face can still get in the water but as she gets stronger she remembers to lean back and even leaning all her weight back she still stays upright. We have an above ground pool and whenever we are outside or near the pool she keeps it on and is still able to play! I would recommend this for all little swimmers." —Candi

    Price: $27.89 (available in 18 animals)

    6. A pack of stainless steel necklace extenders so your chokers won't actually choke you anymore. You can exhale now.

    Promising review: "I have a few necklaces that have been sitting in my jewelry box for years because the length just isn't right. Not the right style for a choker (plus I hate chokers) and too short for other uses. I'm embarrassed I didn't think to order these years ago. They did the trick and I especially like the clasps on both ends of the extender, so they will work with basically any type of necklace clasp." —Pmy

    Price: $6.49

    7. A smokeless electric indoor grill to enjoy your burgers without setting off the fire alarm in your tiny apartment building.

    It has a temperature control knob, a large cooking surface, and is easily detachable to stash in the dishwasher!

    Promising review: "I was really excited for this grill and it didn't disappoint me. It works great. I cooked burgers on it and it didn't stick at all. It has a knob for you to adjust the temperature. It doesn't produce smoke at all which is kind of insane. There is also a tray under the grill to catch small stuff which makes cleaning way too easy." —Cem

    Price: $49.99

    8. An easily installable foam safety guard for keeping your kid from falling off the damn bed after sleeping pretty wild throughout the night.

    The foam is water-resistant, hypoallergenic, washable, and works with all standard-size sheets.

    Promising review: "I love this bumper for my two-year-old son's bed. We just transitioned him into a twin bed and I had many concerns about a traditional bed rail. I was worried he would try to climb over and fall. I did some research and found this amazing product. I love how he can climb in and out of the bed independently with no trouble and it keeps him in bed too! He has slept in the bed now for a week and we have had no issues." —Cassie

    Price: $24.92

    9. A tube of Weleda Skin Food that'll moisturize super-dry skin with the help of sunflower seed oil and almond oils, making it silky smooth for the summertime sun.

    Promising review: "I love Skin Food, I always have. For anyone who hasn't used this before: Skin Food feels like a body butter and has a crisp, natural citrus scent. Your skin will drink it up so it won't feel greasy or heavy. I'd recommend this to anyone, whether you are looking to heal your chapped skin or are just looking for something dreamy to apply after a shower. It's definitely helpful year-round." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $6.30

    10. A defrosting tray for quickly thawing frozen meats — it can thaw chicken breasts, steak, pork chops, lamb chops within 60 minutes!

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this! I am so bad about remembering to set meat out to defrost the night before, and this thing his saved us. A lot of times we ended up ordering out because we didn't have any meat thawed and didn't want to go through the trouble. This has helped tremendously and saved us a lot of money." —Abby V.

    Price: $17.99

    11. A hot air popcorn popper so you can have super warm, crunchy, and buttery popcorn while you continue your epic Netflix binge.

    Promising review: "I am a bear hunter and spent my days popping around 15 garbage bags of popcorn weekly from August through October. This thing pops like a champ! I popped non stop until it would shut itself down from over heating but was back at it in 15 minutes once it had a chance to cool. I think I popped more popcorn in three months then the average person does in two years and will use it again next season." —Terri

    Price: $22+ (available in three colors)

    12. A cool-touch Hamilton Beach toaster for getting your bagels to just the right amount of crispiness. You love the crunch.

    Promising review: "Bought this to replace a toaster in my office. So far, so good. The large slots accommodate bagels including the super large specialty bagels. The settings are pretty clear and have been easy to use. I have received comments that it looks 'very high end' and 'swanky' I don't care about looks so much, but if you do, this toaster does look nice. I enjoy the cancel feature on the toaster. Gives you the option of cutting off the toasting process a little early without having to fidget with the lever." —Jessica

    Price: $18.23

    13. A handy dandy cheese slicer with an adjustable thickness that'll make cutting a block so much easier.

    Promising review: "Since my wife and I are very fond of cheese, it is very important for us to have a good cheese slicer. After looking around in so many stores, it was a relief to find this Bellemain Cheese Slicer. It is constructed very well and has an easily adjustable wire blade, something which a number of other cheese slicers surprisingly lack." —DR_CJK

    Price: $10

    14. A hammock swing set that'll set off the summer relaxation in your backyard with the tree of your choice.

    It can be hung inside or outside and hold up to 265 pounds. The fabric is absolutely machine washable.

    Promising review: "This is a great swing, super comfortable. I bought it to replace another similar one that had worn out. It's a great swing!" —MomtoAllBoyz

    Price: $39.99

    15. A pair of swim shoes with anti-slip soles for wading around in the water without busting your ass on the pool concrete.

    Promising review: "These are great, super lightweight! I tried them on last week and used them in the tub and they were awesome! They stay on your feet and you have that extra barrier to protect you on the bottom of your feet! I can't wait to take these to Mexico in June!" —Alexis Peterson

    Price: $8.99+ (available in sizes 3–16 and 42 colors)

    16. A portable double-sided projection screen to watch your favorite movies bigger and better than ever.

    It can be fastened easily with hooks, ropes, brackets, or double-sided tape!

    Promising review: "We love this! We used it for the first time Saturday night for my son’s sleepover! We have a huge playground and put it on up there. The boys had a blast! Great picture quality, and no wrinkles straight out of the packaging!" —Carrie

    Price: $37.99

    17. A tower with a bed and scratching post for your cat who loves to lounge and play in equal amounts.

    Promising review: "My kitten loves it. He can't get enough and naps in there every day. I got it when he was four weeks old and didn't like it there, but fast forward a couple month later and now it's his favorite place to be. He doesn't use it for his claws, but my other cat loves to use the scratching post." —mfrance74

    Price: $21.95

    18. A copy of Capital Gaines: Smart Things I Learned Doing Stupid Stuff to inspire you to actually follow through on all your biggest plans while reading about Chip Gains' remarkable life.

    Promising review: "This book is funny, inspirational, and a real 'get off your duff and make your dreams happen' kind of book? I agree with Chip in oh so many ways. Let’s be bridge builders and act instead of listening to our fears." —shanabanana

    Price:$14.26 (also available on Kindle)

    19. A pack of quick-drying, oil-based paint pens so you can be the next Pablo Picasso without getting all the colors of the rainbow on your clothes!

    These can be used on multiple surfaces such as ceramic, wood, glass, stone, plastic and canvas without smudging or fading!

    Promising review: "These markers go on super smooth with heavy coverage as you would expect paint to look. Tried on a whim since we like all the other Castle Art supplies we've bought, and these are really neat!" —DC

    Price: $13.99 (for a set of 12)

    20. A bottle of Color Wow Dreamcoat Supernatural Spray made with a heat-activated polymer to act as a barrier between your luscious locks and the horrible humidity.

    Promising review: "Finally — a product that lives up to the hype. For my hair type, it keeps my hair from frizzing like no other product I've ever used and I've tried many! I can only vouch for my hair type which is "medium texture, not thin, but not thick, slightly wavy." I use a boar's hair brush to blow-dry, then either curl or straighten a couple times a week. My hair is also color-treated and from what I can tell, it's helping keep my hair from drying out." —PassingGlimmer

    Price: $28

    21. A "Best Dad Ever" T-shirt, because you absolutely love your father (or father figure, whatever) and want everyone to know how much you adore them.

    Promising review: "I bought this for my husband for his birthday. He loves it and has worn it several times. It seems to be washing and drying well. I purposely ordered it a size larger than he needs so I would have to worry about drying it. It doesn't seem to have shrunk much at all. We are very happy with it and he has gotten a few compliments from strangers on it." —Natalie Bryan

    Price: $5+ (available in sizes S–XXL and seven colors)
