    1. Some trending high-waist bike shorts that have over 4,000 5-star Amazon reviews from happy shoppers who love 1) the way these shorts balance being both compressive *and* extremely comfy, 2) how conveniently deep the pockets are, and 3) the wide range of colors and lengths they're available in. You'll probably never wanna wear real pants again after trying these on.

    2. A pack of SweatBlock clinical antiperspirant wipes for anyone dealing with excessive sweat, because spending money on an array of fancy deodorants and doctor visits full of empty promises is truly the ~pits~.

    3. A phone holder so you can keep both hands on the wheel and still be able to see the GPS. This one works with most smartphones, lets you adjust the angle, and makes it super easy to get your phone in and out. Reviewers like this one way more than the magnetic ones that tend to not hold heavier phones securely, don't fit as nicely in car vents, and make it harder to position toward the driver.

    4. An extra strong dog poop bag revered by environmentally conscious pet owners who want something leak-proof that blocks odors, protects hands, is big enough for even the largest pups and poops, *and* is made of recycled materials.

    5. L’Oreal’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!

    8. Some hoof healer natural foot balm to help revive your dry, cracked, and callused feet so they can be soft and smooth once again!

    11. A portable bug bite suction tool that helps reduce itching and swelling from a mosquito, bee, or wasp sting by literally SUCKING the venom out of your skin.

    12. Or a citronella candle that mosquitoes hate almost as much as you hate them.

    13. A mini knife sharpener so you can stop struggling to get your ancient dull blades to be the faithful collaborators they once were. This'll bring 'em back to life so your wallet can stop shuddering at the thought of purchasing a brand-new set.

    14. A set of cleaning K-Cups you can pop into your Keurig just like you're making a normal cup of coffee. Then all you have to do is brew one large cycle with the cleaner pod, and one or more with just water (depending on how dirty your machine is), and you're done! Before you go replacing the whole thing, give these a try first!

    15. A pair of overalls that'll look great over borderline anything. Good luck trying to put together an outfit that doesn't include these once you have them at your disposal.

    16. A tube of Essence's Lash Princess mascara that defines and separates lashes to give you the bold look you usually need ~falsies~ for. Not anymore! Plus, it'll last all day — even in hot weather — without clumping, flaking, fading, or wearing.

    17. 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.

    18. A pack of oil-absorbing tissues that'll help 1) rid your face of excess oils without stripping away necessary moisture, 2) control shine, and 3) soothe irritated skin — all using natural green tea ingredients. They're convenient to keep with you on the go, and are much cheaper than the fancy foundations you've been gritting your teeth and paying for in an effort to reduce those shiny midday T-zones.

    19. A lightweight button-down tank for a breezy look that can easily be dressed up or down without sacrificing comfort.

    20. A trending Bio-Oil that uses vitamins A and E, chamomile, and lavender to soothe cracked and dry skin, fade new *and* old scars, and moisturize without clogging up your pores. Reviewers who have been washing their hands a lot and ending up with painful dry skin say this really helps!

    23. A Revlon hot air brush that'll simplify your routine using special vents that allow air to flow, so hair dries faster without damaging. It's much quicker and easier than using a dryer, flat iron, or curling iron, and the results will make you feel like you just came from the salon!

    24. A germaphobe-approved smartphone sanitizer that'll simultaneously sanitize *and* charge your phone! Forget about trying to wipe down every crevice with different cleaners and anxiously wondering if they'll mess up your screen or seep into the headphone jack. Just set your phone in this case, and the UV light will zap 99.99% of the uninvited germs clinging to your phone while the USB port gets you back to fully charged.

    25. Some gentle, but effective AsaVea Teeth Whitening Pens that'll give you quick results with just a minute of daily use. Reviewers say they don't cause sensitivity, and they have a pleasant mint flavor that'll make your mouth feel fresh and clean.

    26. Some Maybelline Instant Age Rewind concealer that'll send dark circles, blemishes, fine lines, puffiness, and redness packing, so you can do a quick, effective touch up without worrying about adding a whole layer of foundation and dealing with caking or clogged pores.

    27. An easy-to-use jewelry-cleaning pen – it makes jewels sparkle and shine so they look good as new.

    28. A pet hair remover to help anyone who can never seem to get all of their pet's fur off of their clothes and furniture. This thing has over 54,000 5-star reviews for a reason! Just roll it over your fuzz-covered item of choice, and watch it lift the fur RIGHT OFF.

    29. A Seche Vite bundle containing a base and top coat dynamic duo that collab to help protect your freshly painted nails from playing out their seemingly favorite activity: chipping immediately. Maybe now you can stop going through expensive nail polish like nobody's business!

    33. A reusable Revlon Oil-Absorbing Volcanic Face Roller for anyone who wants to stop buying wasteful oil-blotting sheets. This works the same way! Just roll it over your T-zone or other greasy areas, and soak up excess oil *without* messing up your carefully applied makeup.

    34. Adidas Cloudfoam Pure running shoes that'll make you feel like you're truly walking on a cloud, thanks to the memory foam sockliner, stretchy mesh upper, and Cloudfoam cushioning. Plus, you can slip these right on and off without tying and untying the laces!

    35. A double-sided wheel desk so eating and working in your car can actually be comfortable and *much* less messy. Plus, do restaurants usually have recliners?? I don't think so.

    36. And a 3D-printed clip-on sauce holder you can attach to your vents to help keep meals on-the-go more convenient and with less potential for sauce to get ~everywhere~.

    37. A foot file and callus remover that'll make your feet feel like they were completely reborn.

    38. An Eco Tools Facial Cleansing Brush revered for how it gives pores a deep clean while lightly exfoliating your skin so you can maximize the effect from even lower end facial cleansers and give the pricey stuff a *hard pass*.

    39. A John Frieda color-enhancing glaze capable of fooling everyone into thinking you just got back from a pricey salon appointment, when in reality you spent even less than your standard tip! This stuff adds a lil' extra shine to colored hair, enhances the hue of natural brown locks, and fills in damaged areas for ultimate smoothness.

    40. Some colorful huaraches you should only buy if you're OK with everyone you meet asking where you got them.

    41. Or some open-toed handmade braided huaraches if you wanna treat your feet to some fresh air.
