Billie razor so you can say goodbye to that rusty thing currently sitting on your shower shelf and say HELLO to this sleek, modern, and ~smooth~ new razor.
Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed, Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed
Bek O'Connell loves her Billie razors. Here's what she had to say:
"Billie is just the most wonderful company, and every time I take a shower, I wonder if I should write them fan mail. First of all, everything they design is ADORABLE, so even if their razors were dull or flimsy, I'd still be a loyal fan. But luckily, their razors are as sharp as they are sharp looking.
The handle is super lightweight and easy to grip. The razor heads are surrounded in a layer of soap, so they glide beautifully over skin without irritating it. Billie makes great razors, and it's awesome that they're so affordable. If only they could go back in time and stop me from paying absurd amounts of money on pharmacy brand razors in my youth."
Get the starter kit from Billie for
$9 (and then four replacement cartridges for $9 when you need them).

Get them from Zenni Optical for
bug bite suction tool that'll help reduce the itching and swelling after a mosquito, bee, or wasp sting.
The suction can be pretty strong so use caution and try a small amount of suction first and work your way up if necessary.
Promising review: "I am a magnet for bites of all kinds and carry topical and medicines with me at all times, so I figured this would be a good product to see if it really works. I woke up with a bug bite on my arm so I used this little tool (three times per the instructions) — immediately after using, it stopped itching! And less than 24 hours later the bump/bite gone! There is a very faint red mark from using the thing, but a small price to pay IMO. Bottom line: it’s awesome. I’m carrying it with me everywhere!" — Rebecca

We Are Knitters sweater kit so you can soothe yourself while watching your favorite show. By the end of season 2 you'll find yourself with a brand-new sweater!
BuzzFeed / Rachel Dunkel
The knitting kit will come with seven skeins of baby alpaca, wooden knitting needles, the pattern to make the sweater, a small knitter's sewing needle, the embroidered label, and WAK Packaging.
Rachel Dunkel tested and loved her sweater kit. In her own words:
"I recommend these kits for *anyone* who needs to kill some time and enjoys crafting. If you're a new knitter, then this is a great way to challenge yourself and make the most of your growing skills. If you're an old pro, then it's really nice to not have to make a big project plan. Simply hopping in and working in straight stockinette honestly felt so good... If I do another kit, I'll definitely look closer at the measurements and probably size up, but I'm simply thrilled that I can WEAR something that I MADE!"

attachable bidet that'll make all other bathrooms inferior to yours as soon as you try it for the first time!
The bidet features pressure and angle control for a targeted spray and a self-cleaning nozzle. It requires no plumbing and fits on a variety of toilet shapes (including round, oval, and elongated ones).
Melanie Aman swears by her bidet. Here's what she has to say about it:
"This is the bidet I use and I 100% recommend to my friends, family, and to you, dear reader. Installation was pretty simple; from start to poop it took about 15 minutes. The sensation is truly something if you've never experienced it before, but the cool water will probably feel good once it's summer and my apartment gets nice and steamy. (There's also a version of this attachment that sprays warm water if you're into that!)"
Get it from Hello Tushy for
$89 (originally $109; available in two colors and comes with a 60-day risk-free guarantee so you won't lose money if your butt doesn't like it).
Jackbox Party Pack 6 because we all miss laughing with our friends and this is a super fun way to connect online!
It comes with five games, including: Trivia Murder Party 2 (1-8 players; you try to survive a bunch of mini games), Role Models (3-6 players; it's a personality test your friends take for you), Joke Boat (3-8 players; you compete with one-liners for a cruise ship talent show), Dictionarium (3-8 players; you compete for the funniest definition of a word), and Push the Button (4-10 players, where you try to find the hidden aliens).
Heather Braga in her own words:
"My friends and I bought
Jackbox Party Pack 6 last weekend and had so much fun playing together. We all signed onto Zoom so we could chat while playing the various games. It came with six games total, which gave us enough options to find activities everyone enjoyed. It was fairly easy to set up as well — everyone just has to log into a specific URL and enter a unique code to get into the game. Honestly, it made this quarantine scenario feel a bit more normal even if it was only for a few hours of fun."
Get it from Jackbox for
$20.99 (only one person has to buy, and they set up the game for everyone else).

meal prep containers to help prevent another day going by with a rumble in your stomach and no food to soothe it. Portion out your lunch and dinner and you won't have to scrape together a mediocre meal.
These are microwave, dishwasher, and freezer safe!
Promising review: "These containers have been a lifesaver for me. I recently am doing the Keto diet and prep is a huge part of success not only for me but my husband as well for packed lunches for work. The size is perfect to fit in lunch boxes. I cook and freeze as well and they hold up great. All around this was a great buy! Storage containers are expensive with most not holding up in microwave very long leaving stains; not the case with these at all." — Paula R.
