1. A mermaid tail blanket to keep your feet warm while you're reading a book on the ocean's many treasures.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "The back of this mermaid tail blanket is stitched up to so that it reaches just to the back of my knees, which is perfect. The rest of the blanket is open, and is enough coverage for an adult. For the record, I'm 5' 8" and this goes up to my rib cage. The material is similar to a thick sweater, and is great for when I'm reading books on the couch and my feet get a little cold. It comes with a drawstring bag, which is convenient for storage!" –TaintedTiara

Price: $9.99

2. A super matte lipstick that'll last you through multiple meals, coffee cups, and a potential dip in the pool. Win!

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising Review: "I am loving this lipstick. It is now all I wear. It's so long-lasting! The color is amazing, and the way it stays on the lips without having to reapply is amazing. It also makes me look like I have full lips which I love." –Michelle

3. This pet candle: if you're an animal lover, but aren't a fan of the smell, it can mask pet odor so your home can smell like heaven again.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising Review: "These candles are AMAZING! I have two elderly Maltese that are pad trained, and even though I change the pads often, you can sometimes get a whiff of them if you are in the same room. I lit up one of these and all you could smell was glorious lavender. If you aren't a lavender fan, they make other scents. The bottom line is that these are scented candles that really WORK!" –R. Heitman

Price: $21.95

4. A set of gas range protectors for all the messy cooks who spill food into places they can't clean out.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I picked up these for my mom because she has a gas stove and always complained when we were growing up about how much hassle it was to clean around the burners. I like that these can be cut to fit, which makes them very versatile, easy to use and can be picked up and washed in the sink to clean." –Krazy T

Price: $9.99.

5. A quick-drying nail polish with a top coat included in its formula, so it will last you forever in polish years.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising Review: "I love the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure because of the ease of use. Two coats and you are DONE. This is your base coat, color, and top coat all in one. Plus for travel, you only have one bottle to pack!" –Annbeth

Price: $6.99. Available in 56 colors.

6. A hair repair mask to protect and restore color-treated locks to their former strength and original hue, so it can look like you just got it done!

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising Review: "An inexpensive, effective deep conditioner that left my short platinum hair feeling silky and refreshed. I was relieved to find a product that wasn't expensive and gets the job done. It also has a pleasant light scent." –AJW

Price: $6.85

7. A blackhead remover kit that'll leave your nose smooth af. Who doesn't like to see all the dead skin and whiteheads that once inhabited your body? It's gross in an intriguing way.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising Review: "This is way kinder to your nose than the Biore strips and just as effective. The instructions are in Korean, but the pictures explain it just fine. The first strip OPENS your pores, and then the second is the traditional blackhead strip. The third one is kind of weird, and is a clear gel sort of strip that closes your pores and moisturizes them after the second strip. It molds really well to your nose, so you can easily run around and do other things while letting it do its thing, which is nice." –Roxanne

Price: $15.50

8. A universal cell phone mount for your car because texting and driving is bad – and so are moving violation tickets.

Promising Review: "So I absolutely love this phone mount. It has so many uses depending on your needs. It has the basic clip on the vent adapter, but also has two adapters that you can mount to your windshield. There is one with a solo adjustment, but the other has the long neck option, which is completely adjustable. You can bend it and form it into the exact position that you want. Although it is very rigid and stiff so it wont move all over the place, its also very easy to manage and position to where you desire!" –Ryan KenneyPrice: $13.99

9. This ab wheel will have you feeling the burn in a matter of minutes (if you're looking for a convenient way to get a workout in at home).

amazon.com

Promising Review: "Honestly, I thought this type of workout would be easier than it looked, but that was a severe understatement! This workout is timesaving and makes you put in a ton of effort! This ab wheel is perhaps the most comfortable thing out there! The foam pad to rest your knees on is much needed, I do not think I could do this without it. The packet of exercises is very helpful, I try to go through it at least three times a week, and the ab wheel itself is capable and durable – you can feel it is a quality build. If you want to start working out your core, look no further!" –Alex Croitoru

Price: $15.20

10. A universal shade for your car because who can actually stand sun glare when you don't have to?

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I sit in the car for an hour while waiting to pick my daughter up from school in the afternoons, and living in Texas, the sun gets hot! I wanted something that would block the sun while still allowing air flow. I found this and ordered it. It fits well enough to block out the sun and make waiting MUCH more comfortable. I can still feel the breeze that is blowing through and see what is going on around me. Before this, I was just propping the normal window shade up to block the side window, and while that worked in blocking the sun, it also blocked any air flow from that window, along with my ability to see outside. I knew there had to be something better out there!" –Texan76

Price: $19.97

11. A nifty container for your bacon that preserves the savory flavor that we all love. May you never have to touch the slimy plastic sliver of a bacon package ever again.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising Review: "My husband thought that I was silly buying this Bacon Keeper, and that it was just more money thrown out the window! But I was tired of putting my leftover uncooked bacon back into that slimy package, especially the way the packaging is. You have to open the cardboard, slide it in between the cardboard and that flap, and then slide that package sideways into the slimy plastic outer package. You'd think they'd come up with a new way to package it! Anyway, now I just take out all of the bacon and whatever I don’t use, I place it right into the Keeper. I was surprised to see how fresh the bacon kept. After over two weeks, it was still soft and light pink in color. Not brown and hard like it usually gets after a few days. So I am very pleased with my silly little purchase. It didn't turn out so silly after all!" –Lucy

Price: $8

12. Some dry shampoo paste that doubles as a light gel, so you can style your hair on the go!

Promising Review: "I use this product on my fine pixie cut. I rub just a bit of the paste on my fingers, then rub it into the roots of my hair, and a little on the rest of my hair for a little texture. It works great for giving my hair some volume and lift!" –Alison FraserPrice: $28

13. A car seat cover to prevent your precious cargo from being burned by cursed metal seat buckles this summer.

amazon.com

Promising Review: " This is one of the best baby accessories I've purchased. I live in Arizona, where it is regularly above 100 degrees during the summer, and this helps to keep the buckles on the car seat from branding my baby's skin. Of course, I still always check the metal before putting my baby in the car seat, and this alone doesn't solve the problem on the hottest days, but it certainly helps. My strategy after running errands is to remove the cover, start the car to get the AC going full blast, roll down the windrows, put away groceries or whatever away in my trunk, return the cart, then check the metal on the buckles before finally putting my baby in the car seat, then rolling the windows back up, and driving away." –Andrea

Price: $7.06

14. An out of this world iridescent lipstick for an amazing look straight out of A Clockwork Orange... but without the dystopian society thing.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I love this color! It's a frosty blue and lavender alone, but transforms over any lip color you use! Definitely great for festival time, or if you're feeling like 1999!" –Jessica Terry

Price: $18. Available in 11 colors.

15. An exfoliating towel for removing all of the dead skin on your body so you can feel like a newborn again.

Promising Review: "There's no cleaner showering than one that entails a full body exfoliation. It's not so rough it damages the skin, but just enough to slough off the dead cells. I like to use soap with this product, however my wife uses it in the traditional way without soap. After, she applies moisturizing lotion. She says there's a satisfaction in seeing the dead skin is scoured off your body. I tried it and admit that it does tell you how dirty was, and how clean your body is when you're done." –TommyTooTechnicalPrice: $10.59+

16. A mud mask to treat your face to some tender love and care! It cleanses your skin, leaving it amazingly soft and supple.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising Review: "I was skeptical of using this mask because I feel like I've tried so many products with no results. This mask is amazing. I have only used it once, and the difference in my skin is huge. It cleaned my pores and seemed to shrink them. My skin is so smooth and soft now! I don't even want to put makeup on because my skin looks great. I'm a believer. I let the mask dry for about thirty minutes and used a warm washcloth to rub it off. I waited about ten minutes before moisturizing my face to let it air dry!" –kathi weston

Price: $14.95

17. Some holographic nail polish so you can party like it's the turn of the millennium.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising Review: "This is the best holographic nail polish out there! ONE COAT and my polish was opaque! It goes on very smooth and the formula is amazing! The rainbow colors are absolutely stunning! Holosexual for life!" –samantha

Price: $7.99. Available in 12 colors.

18. This waterline eyeliner that's eye doctor-approved.

vasanticosmetics.com

Promising Review: "This is the BEST waterline eyeliner I've ever used! I've tried many just to have them run out come off quickly. I'm also concerned about what goes on my waterline, and this is ophthalmologist and dermatologist tested and approved. It doesn't make my eyes itch or water. I've gotten compliments on it, even after a full day at a theme park!" –sugarcube367

Price: $19

19. Botanical body soap with grapefruit and oatmeal to brighten and soothe irritated, dry skin (plus, it can provide relief for body acne).

Promising Review: "I have used a handful of Mario Badescu products, but this has been my favorite by far. I have naturally oily skin and typically develop very small acne on my chest and back that would never seem to go away despite trying a variety of body washes, even ones intended to diminish acne. Within a week of using this product, my chest and back have COMPLETELY cleared up." –Scott P.Price: $14
