46 Helpful Products That Deserve A Place In Your Cart *And* Your Heart

A TikTok-famous clock, amazing stain remover, cold brew coffee maker, soothing face mask, and other things that might just make you ~swoon~.

1. A shampoo scalp brush that'll give you a relaxing lil' massage every time you wash your hair while deep cleaning and exfoliating your scalp. Some reviewers even claim it helps with psoriasis, dandruff, and scalp tenderness!

Here's what BuzzFeed Editor Emma Lord has to say about it:

"I recently started using one of these and WOWZA, it really helps you get extra mileage out of your shampoo. I have a whole lot of hair on my head so sometimes it's a struggle to feel like I've soaped up my whole scalp thorough, but this was a very effective way to spread out the suds and really get them to the roots. I was worried it might tangle in my hair, but it was totally fine on that front, too. I've noticed that my hair has been a little less greasy at the roots since I started using it. And I'm echoing a ton of reviewers here when I say it just feels reeeeeally, really nice."

Promising review: "I’ve suffered from dry skin and a dry scalp ever since I turned 30. The only thing that helps me is exfoliating. I was initially concerned that the product would be too rough and damage my sensitive scalp or too soft and ineffective. However, this brush is perfect for me. It does not tangle my long hair, it is easy to use and just firm enough to get the job done. My scalp no longer itches and the icky buildup is gone. I can’t believe something so affordable has made such a difference in the health of my scalp. I’ve used expensive shampoos and conditioners to no end with barely a difference. I wish I discovered this product much sooner!" —AH

2. An enzyme-based laundry stain remover because it just might bring your fave top back to life after the stain you thought would be the end of it.

Promising review: "For whatever reason, I am ALWAYS spilling things on my shirts and I cook every night (sometimes I remember the apron, sometimes I don't). My clothes are a mess by the end of the day. I'm not proud of it, but there it is. I have tried EVERYTHING there is to remove stains and this is the absolute BEST thing out there. (There is simply not a major stain remover that I have not tried.) The only thing close is a long pre-soak (I mean like six hours) in Oxyclean. With Puracy, you get the best result by doing it well in advance, but for me that is another plus because I would far rather spray them when I put them in the hamper than do it all at once just before I do the laundry. It seems to get everything out and I've never had any trouble with damaged fabric. I don't really review very much, but this is seriously outstanding." —NYC Buyer

Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in three sizes and packs of two).

3. A set of affordable and reviewer-loved (under $35 and *over* 145,000 5-star reviews!) waterproof wireless Bluetooth earbuds that'll instantly pair with your devices so you can stop fussing with wires getting tangled up in your mask or dealing with dropouts and latency from lesser Bluetooth products. Plus, the comfy silicone earpieces are designed for extra stability so they don't fall out of your ears even if you're running and jumping!

These come with a wireless charging case that provides up to 14 hours of charge (with the earbuds able to play for 4+ hours with each full charge). The earbuds are also so waterproof, you can use them in the shower, and have a built-in mic so you can chat on the phone. 

Promising review: "The earbuds worked seamlessly and well out of the box. I use them while hiking the hills with my dogs and when working at my desk – I can still hear outside noises when needed for safety, but can listen to music without disturbing others. The earbuds are comfortable even during exercise, and they fit securely. Using the earbuds as a headset with my cellphone is easy as well. I do have to experiment with how they handle the Google assistant. The audio quality is at least stereo hi-fi, and the earbuds paired easily with both my phone and laptop. Wireless charging and having a large backup power source for the phone are terrific features." –Jawpar

Get it from Amazon $32.99+ (available in four colors).

4. A painless mint-flavored Venus teeth-whitening pen — it'll give you quick results with just thirty seconds (!) of daily use. Even *years* of stains from things like coffee, tea, wine, smoking, soda and more are no match for this thing.

5. Some Miracle-Gro indoor plant food spikes to ~miraculously~ nourish and save even the plants you thought were goners for sure.

6. A jar of the Pink Stuff paste, which has reached cult-favorite status for being great at removing stains, rust, discoloration, and other stubborn marks from metal, ceramic tiles, saucepans, barbecues, and much more without leaving behind any scratches!

7. A Schick Silk Touch-Up Tool so you don't have to pay to remove peach fuzz. Plus, it works painlessly and precisely, leaving your face oh so smooth without the irritation marks that most threading or razors leave behind.

8. A set of bed bands to keep your fitted sheets from slipping off of the corners of your bed and getting tangled up with your sheets every single night.

9. A rechargeable, flameless electric lighter so you can stop running out of lighter fluid and doing all kinds of acrobatics to get your ancient gas station lighter to give you just one more flame.

Check out what BuzzFeed Editor Emma Lord has to say about it:

"People also swear by this for camping! It comes in other pretty colors, but I am especially partial to this one because I bought it for my parents (their kitchen is entirely pink and one of my favorite places on Earth), and this was SO EASY to use — not to mention super safe! I'm a big weenie about fire (lol, self-preservation) so I've always stuck to extended arm gas lighters, but this is much better for the environment (plus cuter), so I feel a lot better about using it."

Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in four colors).

10. A cold brew coffee maker so you can stop overpaying for your fave daily beverage. Just add coffee to the brewer and water to the coffee maker, shake it up, then put it in the fridge overnight and that's it! This awesome device features an airtight lid and stainless-steel filter to keep coffee fresh for up to two weeks!

Promising review: "I have been drinking caffeinated beverages every day for half my life. Usually brewing hot then cooling it down with ice was quite a process to do every morning. Then I came across this cold brew pitcher and thought I'd give it a try. It's great, easy to use and clean, very convenient, lasts for a couple weeks, I love it! Making a pitcher of coffee take less time than a normal brewer and makes enough for at least one cup a day for about a week, depending on how much coffee concentrate is used. I haven't used my normal coffee or espresso machine since I got this cold brew system. The coffee seems to taste better as well, not a huge difference but it's somewhat noticeable." —Jeremy Birnbaum

11. A pair of open-toed sandals some reviewers claim are even comfier than Birkenstocks (and much more affordable too)!

Promising review: "Relief! I have high arches and have developed something like plantar fasciitis now that I'm in my mid-40s. Didn't want to spend the money on the comparable Birkenstocks, even though I highly trust that brand. So glad I tried these first! Can't believe the price. And when I can't stand being barefoot or any other shoes, these are my go to. Wonderful!" —DB

Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in women's sizes 5–13, including wide sizes, as well as 15 colors).

12. A pack of dishwasher-cleaning tablets, because who wants to spend time loading up the dishwasher only for it to present you with dishes that are STILL dirty?? No thank you. Just pop these tabs in and let them do the job for you!

13. A tube of Essence's Lash Princess mascara that defines and separates lashes to give you the bold look you usually need ~falsies~ for. Plus, it'll last all day — even in hot weather — without clumping, flaking, fading, or wearing.

14. A trending rotating digital alarm clock / device charger you've probably seen on TikTok because everyone is obsessed with it. And with good reason! It's cool mirrored screen features an extra-large LED display that makes it easy to catch a quick glance of the time even from a distance *and* it will auto-dim during your sleep time (although it's manually dimmable too)!  Plus, it has two charging ports so you can charge the clock *and* your other devices simultaneously. And finally, it's got a big ol' snooze button so you can quickly and easily silence the numerous alarms you set before the one that actually means it's time to wake up.

Promising review: "Love love love this clock...sleek and definitely a statement piece. Alarm is subtle it will definitely wake you up however it will not scare the B-Jesus out of you. Love the extra ports on the side to charge other things with it." —Meika B.

Get it from Amazon for $18.59+ (available in six colors).

15. Some Avarelle tea tree and calendula oil-infused pimple patches that actually help reduce acne overnight by drawing out pus trapped under the skin. You can even see all of the gunk these patches pull out, so you know they're working.

16. A vinyl plastic vaccine card sleeve with a resealable top so you can keep this important doc safe and dry at all times — especially when you're taking it to Krispy Kreme for your free donut they're offering to vaccinated folks!! Plus, it has a hole so you can attach it to a lanyard.

17. A pet urine stain-removing spray perfect for pet owners who are desperate to remove spots and smells both old and new.

Rocco & Roxie Supply Company is a family-owned small business established in 2013 that specializes in pet odor eliminators, pet toys, pet snacks, and pet accessories.

Promising review: "I don’t know how I ever survived without this. There’re tons of 'pet stain/odor remover' products out there, but this by far is the absolute best. I cringed paying the $20 for it when others are between $5–$10, but I have NO ISSUES paying now. I foster dogs, some puppies, some older, some not housebroken, and every room in my house is carpeted except the kitchen, which means I have lots of accidents. I spray enough to saturate if it’s a lot of urine, let it soak for 10 minutes, then wipe it up with a hand towel. Then I put a larger towel on top of it if it’s in a high-traffic area until it’s completely dry. It’s taken out every stain and, more importantly, the odor is gone! I will never stop buying this product. I recommend it to everyone who has dogs!" —Shelley

Get it from Amazon for $19.93.

18. A bottle of Drop It that naturally removes wine sulfates and tannins (aka HEADACHE INGREDIENTS) in just 20 seconds *without* altering the flavor. Forget wasteful single-use wands that have to sit in your glass and require three minutes of stirring. Drop It is a quick, portable, cost-effective, and discreet solution that's been verified as the *only* product that removes these compounds in red, white, rosé, and sparkling wine. Plus, one lil' bottle can be used for up to 55 glasses of vino, *and* it's made with an all-natural, KETO-friendly formula that doesn't contain any gluten, soy, dairy, or GMOs!

Drop It recommends 1-2 drops for each glass of white wine, 2-3 for a glass of red, and 7-9 if you're treating the whole bottle at once. Once it's in the glass, swirl lightly for 20 seconds, and you should be good to go!

Promising review: "I became really sensitive to wine in my thirties and through a lot of trial and painful error, I thought I might have to give up on wine altogether. Then I found out about the preservatives being a possible cause and decided to give this product a shot. So glad I did!! I'm still pretty sensitive to reds but this helps tremendously so that I can have a glass with dinner without a headache immediately settling in. Whites cause me no problem what so ever! I love that it takes so little product to make a difference to a whole bottle. Just a few drops, a few minutes and we are good to go." —CastawayIrons

Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

19. A pair of comfy Bluetooth headphones because trying to sleep with regular earbuds in is all fun and games until you roll over on your side. With these, you can stream audio via Bluetooth, block out external sound, and sleep much more comfortably than with tiny pieces of plastic pressing into your ears and tumbling out every time you change positions.

People also use these to give their ears a break if they listen to music during the day or even as exercise headphones for indoor yoga or running in the cold!

Promising review: "Promising review: "These are great! I've struggled with insomnia for the past couple years. I wish I'd found these sooner. They are extremely comfortable. When I fall asleep, I rarely sleep for more than an hour straight. These allow me to comfortably play a podcast or meditation to get myself back to sleep. I'm only two nights in on using these and I know I don't want to be without them. Even in a dark room, I use them to cover my eyes. They do move a little on my head while sleeping but not so much that it really bothers me. I always sleep with a fan on and these keep my little postpartum hairs from flying around and tickling my face all night. The battery life is great. I probably played them for a total of five hours during the night and woke up them still having 70% battery remaining. I probably won't use these for a workout because I don't have to wash them all the time, but for insomnia or anyone who just likes to fall asleep listening to something, these are amazing." —Jesse Brown

Get it from Amazon for $19.97 (available in seven colors).

20. L’Oréal’s 8 Second Wonder Water — it'll give your hair the moisture, shine, and silkiness it's missing, with instant results visible after the first use. Use it on wet hair after shampoo for healthier-looking locks and a weightless feel that takes a mere *eight seconds* to achieve!

21. Some Wet & Forget shower cleaner that makes it easy to keep your tub and shower nice and shiny. All you have to do is spray, let it sit, and rinse — and it'll clean and prevent scummy buildup all on its own. No scrubbing or wiping required — hooray!
