    44 Products That’ll Do Nothing But Benefit Your Life

    Just some things you'll wish you'd gotten a long time ago.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    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.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Had already bought the Baleaf capris with the phone pocket and wanted to try the shorts. Can't believe how many manufacturers are ignoring active women who need a spot for their phones! So happy to discover Baleaf. The pocket fit my iPhone 7 in its case and held it firmly against my upper outer thigh so there wasn't bouncing around and I didn't get chafed. There was also a hidden pocket at the waist that could actually hold a key with fob, not just a single key. Again, HOORAY and why don't more makers of activewear think of this? It felt supportive and snug but nothing was tight. I am a runner and appreciate that the legs of the shorts didn't ride up as I ran. Fabric was a good thickness, not at all see-through. I am a fan!" —Carla Jean

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in 45 styles and sizes XS–3XL).

    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~.

    Amazon

    Apply it every seven days! This is STRONG so if you have sensitive skin, I'd suggest you do a spot test first.

    Promising review: "For anyone who might be skeptic, please allow me to put you at ease. If you have hyperhidrosis, meaning it can be nine degrees outside and you're still sweating under your arms, this product has the potential to change your life. I would sweat THROUGH a sport coat before noon. Enter the Sweat Block product. I've had it for three weeks and it is life-changing. I DO NOT sweat under my arms anymore. I'm still on the original box that I bought three weeks ago. I had to write a review after I was cleaning the garage today in 85-degree heat. I was sweating through my shirt on my back — BUT NOT MY UNDERARMS. It is amazing!" —Frosty McGee

    Get a pack of eight from Amazon for $19.99 (each box lasts two months).

    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.

    Just attach it to any horizontal vents, and you're ready to go!

    Promising review: "Am happy to say it holds the iPhone 6s inside an OtterBox cover, even though the OtterBox’s thickness exceeds the two bottom feet of this holder. Squeeze the two sides really hard to ensure that they grip the Otter box tightly. I have already made a long trip of nearly 1,000 miles without the phone falling out. Really love the ball-and-socket joint since you can angle the phone just right to avoid glare." —maiji

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    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.

    amazon.com

    They also offer an unscented version if you're sensitive to fragrances!

    Promising review: "Is it possible to love a dog poop bag? Heck yeah! I'm a veterinarian and I have tried many brands of bags over the years but since I discovered the Earth Rated Dog Waste Bags I use no other. I use the scented bags because on long walks it kind of disguises the smell of the feces (except those that are really potent), so you don't smell like feces to any passerby. I usually prefer unscented things because I have a sensitive nose and for those inclined, Earth Rated does offer nonscented bags. The Earth Rated bags are also a bit longer than a few other brands though most are similar length. However, the bags are definitely heavier than many other brands and also have way better-sealed seams as well as high-quality separation perforations. The central cylinder glides easily in every brand of bag holder I have. Lastly, a small but important detail... you know that small piece of tape that holds a new roll together? Most brands use a tape that when you pull it off it puts a hole in the opposing part of the bag if you don't very carefully remove it. A hole at the top of a bag is no big deal but further down can lead to leakage. The Earth Rated tape comes off real nice and my first bag isn't destroyed. Overall a very strong, well-made bag that has never let me down. It can hold any load big or small, firm or loose and will not leak or tear." —Jaxdoc

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in two sizes, and in lavender scent or unscented).

    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!

    Promising review: "I don’t usually do reviews on products, but for this one I absolutely have to. I have 3c type hair and struggle with a lot a breakage, unmanageability, and moisture. When my mom mentioned this product to me I didn’t take her seriously because of the simple fact that we have completely different hair textures. I never would have thought this brand would work on my hair. I have always used ethnic hair products and stayed away from brands such as this one because of the alcohol consumption. I have never in my 22 years felt my hair like this! I feel like I have a completely different head of hair. This product is so amazing and I will FOREVER be using this product in my hair regimen." —Theressa Hailey

    Get it from Amazon for $8.97.

    6. An incredibly effective and chemical-free charcoal and coconut oil toothpaste that'll fast track your whitening process without having to spend money on professional services.

    amazon.com

    Its flavor is Pacific mint, and the main ingredients are charcoal, coconut oil, and baking soda to whiten *and* peppermint and tea tree oil to deodorize your breath.

    Promising review: "I am the person who can't use any tooth whitening products because my teeth are so sensitive. Having read about activated carbon and oil pulling I was interested in this potential solution, as my teeth have fought against my current coffee addiction and previous soda addiction and were turning that wonderful yellow everyone strives for. Well after a week of using this, I have started to notice a huge difference!" —Dietrichs

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    7. Some oversized sunnies that look way pricier than they actually are *and* cover most of your face so you can fly under the radar when you're not feeling all that social.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Wow these feel like expensive glasses. The edges are smooth and the bag it comes with is really soft so you can always clean it without scratching. Many of the cheap sunglasses here come with this plastic harsh chemical smell that gives me a headache and is cut with like a weird shape when they knock off styles, but this one did not. I get so many compliments and many friends asked where I got it from and assumed they were $300 sunnies! Great buy!" —Beautylicious

    Get it from Amazon for $13.98+ (available in nine shades).

    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!

    Pickle's Potions and Lotions

    Owner Kristin Mutchler runs this small business in Wayne, Maine. And FYI, Hoof Healer was an Editor's Choice winner in the Beauty Shortlist Awards this year!

    Promising review: "I love the packaging! I've been using the product for over a week and the results are stunning! My soles are not as rough or cracked anymore, giving me boosted confidence to show off my feet this summer! Thank you!!" —Alyssa O.

    Get it from Pickle's Potions and Lotions on Etsy for $8.99+ (available in three scents and two sizes).

    9. Strappy pumps for anyone looking for a little extra height and style without sacrificing comfort. They're designed with extra support, flexibility, and cushioning so that every step is a breeze!

    Black heels
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These shoes are some of the most comfortable heels I have ever purchased. I have heels that I paid over $100 for, but they aren't near as comfortable as these LifeStrides. I've worn these shoes several times to events or out to dinner, but today I wore them to work for 8 hours. I walk quite a bit at work, but these heels did not hurt my feet. I usually get pain in the balls of my feet, but these have just the right amount of cushion." —Joni R. Harris

    Get them from Amazon for $17.50+ (available in sizes 5–11 and seven colors).

    10. A pack of Tide To Go pens that'll save the day and remove those unexpected stains that happen while you're on the go.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These were a lifesaver. I was walking to the bus and decided it was a great decision to drink coffee while walking. Like a scene from an infomercial, I spilled coffee all over my white shirt. Yes, the classic coffee on the white shirt. Luckily I had one of these in my bag (I put one in each of my most-used purses in anticipation of my clumsiness). I went into a store bathroom and quickly scrubbed the Tide To Go on my shirt. All of the coffee blobs went away and once the awkward wet splotches dried up, my shirt was perfectly white again. You've got yourself a big fan, Tide." —Debby

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $6.97.

    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.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Note that the suction can be pretty strong, so use caution and try a small amount of suction first before working 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

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95+ (available in two colors).

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

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I am someone who mosquitoes love to devour. I set up the candles in the backyard for movie night with the family (projector on the outside wall). Didn't get bit once at night. I was bitten about seven times earlier that day using bug repellent spray alone. None of the kids were bit. Worked well." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $6.97+ (available in three sizes).

    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.

    Elizabeth Lilly / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: I gotta say this is the best sharpener I ever bought in my whole life. I got it today and brought it to work. I work at a Japanese restaurant as a sushi chef and I sharpened it at work and, wow, my knife was as sharp as a samurai sword! Even my coworkers were surprised and asked me to order one for them. Thanks for the product ! Now I don't have to use the stone or sharpen rod that much anymore." —Are

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    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!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "We’ve had our Keurig for a few years, and with the exception of using only filtered water and dispensing hot water every so often, we’ve never cleaned the needle or K-cup area. I used three cleaning cups back to back and WOW our machine was dirty!! I'm so happy I purchased these! I’ll be keeping up on cleaning these more often." —Heather Garcia

    Get a pack from Amazon for $9.95.

    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.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I liked these when I tried them on and after wearing them for a few hours, I ordered four more pairs. These are perhaps the most comfortable thing I have ever worn, that includes a pretty awesome cashmere lounge set. They looked cute running errands and were so perfect for chores of all kind, including outside on a hot winter day (gotta love Florida). I have made a lot of Amazon purchases (a whole lot, lots of lots), and these are definitely in my top five." —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes XS–5XL and in 21 colors)

    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.

    Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "Hello, that is my face above, because I bought into the hype of over 35,000 positive reviews and now I will never look back!! Putting it on is like giving my eyelashes butterfly wings. It doesn't get clumpy, it stays put ALL the live long day (I spent all of this ridiculously hot pandemic summer wearing it, so I can speak to that), and you can apply it on very lightly if you don't want it to look so dramatic, or continue applying for longer lashes each time." —Emma Lord, BuzzFeed Staff

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99+ (available in various styles).

    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.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are incredible! I was totally skeptical about acne patches in general. I ordered a few different brands, and these by Avarelle are by far the superior choice! They are super thin and nearly invisible. The patches create a super tight seal that doesn't budge even during sleep — they don't peel off easy, but they don't harm sensitive skin, either. AND THEY WORK! It's amazing to see all the gunk these things suck out. Totally reduces acne overnight or, at the very least, reduces pimples to barely perceptible! Would recommend!" —Amanda L. Purnell

    Get 40 patches from Amazon for $8.49.

    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.

    They're even all-natural! They're made from 100% natural linen fibers with organic bamboo charcoal to keep you nice and fresh all day.

    Promising review: "I've had oily skin my whole life and have used countless types of oils blotting sheets because they're life-savers. THESE ARE AMAZING. They're a great deal, big sheets, and they pull out one at a time so easily. I'll never go back to other brands. Give these a try — they're completely worth it. They work well and are easy to use. I have no negative things to say at all." —Kelsey

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in 17 colors and in sizes S–XXL)

    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!

    Promising review:: "FWIW re: scars, this stuff really works. I had thyroid surgery a few years ago and Bio-Oil took me from looking like I'd stumbled out of the Red Wedding to virtually no detectable scar within a few months. All I did was apply it once in the morning and once at night." —Emma Lord

    "I bought this for my scars but because of the current COVID-19 crisis I have been washing my hands so much that they are painfully dry. Hand cream hasn't helped enough so I decided to use the Bio-Oil on them and even after the first application they felt SO much better! I'm glad I bought the big bottle!" —L. Strand

    Get it from Amazon for $8.92 (available in three sizes and styles).

    21. A coconut-based laundry stain pre-treat stick that you just rub on any dampened fabric and throw in the wash to get rid of stains without having to tediously hand wash beforehand.

    Promising review: "Amazing sandals! I had my last pair for over six years. These wear exceptionally well and are super comfortable. I wore them brand new, straight out of the box, for a long weekend in Las Vegas recently. Even with all of the walking and sightseeing you do there, my feet never hurt and I did not get any blisters at all. I highly recommend them!" —Madredekd

    Get them from Amazon for $89.95+ (available in sizes 4–11 and 23 colors).

    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!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Just wow! I was skeptical at first. I wish I would have bought this sooner! After showering I get all the moisture I can out of my hair. And leave it to kind of air dry while I’m getting ready, having coffee, or whatever I’m doing that morning. It takes me about seven minutes to dry my hair if that! I have very thick naturally curly hair. It’s is a fabulous tool to have in your arsenal! May be the only one I have to use. No flat iron needed as of yet! Would buy again in a heartbeat!" —D.K

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in four colors).

    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.

    Promising review: "Due to prior experiences with other whitening strips, I always deal with tooth sensitivity even after the first use. Naturally now, I only use this pen every other day thinking I was going to deal with the same issue and surprisingly I don't. I actually really like the way it whitens my teeth and love the fact that I'm not dealing with any tooth sensitivity pains." —Claudia Garcia

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $19.99.

    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.

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I am a makeup snob. I have stupidly high standards for cosmetic performance, and drugstore brands have let me down every single time I've given them a shot. So when I graduated from Covergirl to Sephora after college, I never looked back. My kit is full of Dior and YSL foundation, Armani concealer, Benefit brighteners, etc. But this thing is truly great.The sponge applicator is better than you think. Firstly, it's antimicrobial, so you don't have to worry about the hygiene aspect. Secondly, its ability to blend the product is outstanding. The concealer itself doubles as a highlighter, it looks good without primer, and it lasts so much longer than you'd expect." —Sarita

    Get it from Amazon for $7.32 (originally $9.99; available in 18 shades).

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

    Promising review: "If I could give this 10 stars I would! I'm a fanatic when it comes to keeping my jewelry clean, especially my wedding set. I tried this product on my diamonds, Swarovski crystals, and Brighton jewelry, and the results are nothing less than amazing! This restored one of my Swarovski rings that I had not worn in years due to the cloudy color to a sparkling brilliance just like the first day I bought it! I cannot recommend this product enough! I just ordered additional wands so I don't run out! Home run Amazon!" —Kristina B.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Chom Chom, you da real MVP. I've had it in my possession for like two hours and I've cleaned everything. The couch, the blinds, the cat tree pad, the chair, I'm obsessed. I feel like this thing should win an award for being so awesome. I feel like it should be in raffle baskets and giveaways and silent auctions for every event that highlights "things cat people need." It's better than those sticky rollers, it's better than the one-directional velvet wand thing that I always use the wrong way and make a mess, it's the best. I don't have any before pictures because as soon as I started rolling stuff I went crazy." —Meowser

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    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!

    Promising review: "This set has been a game changer for great quality home manicures. Since using the base and top coat, I regularly get asked where I got my nails done and if they’re gel because they look so perfect! I do my nails on Sunday nights, and before using this set I’d usually be touching up chips by Tuesday night. With this base and top coat, they easily look great through Thursday and sometimes last the whole week." —Ev

    Promising review: "After my acrylics came off during quarantine, I wanted to make my natural nails stronger as they had had acrylics on them constantly for the better part of two years. I searched around Amazon and gave this product a try. I'm glad I did. I started using it twice a day, once in the morning and once towards the end of my work day. I'm down to once every few days now and my nails are much stronger after the past two months. I'll continue to use it until I can get back to the salon." —Alice B.

    32. An essential oil migraine stick to help relieve the pain from migraines and headaches that love to show up just in time to spoil your day.

    amazon.com, BuzzFeed / Via Katy Herman

    Promising review: "Very impressed with this product, and honestly I didn't think I would be. As a lifelong migraine/headache sufferer, not a whole lot has worked for me other than prescription meds-which I really don't like to take too often but need to because my headaches are incapacitating most of the time. I recently used the roll-on and within 10–15 minutes my headache was gone. It started to come back last night before bed, and used it again and again it took it away. Now, I knew it wasn't going to be a migraine headache — they feel different when they come on, but for a regular headache this worked wonderfully! I still might use the prescription for a migraine, probably in conjunction with this, as it really is soothing and nice." —carrie

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    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.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Once you're done, just twist off the top of the roller to release the stone and give it a wash before your next use.

    Promising review: "This rolling device is like pure magic. You simply roll it around your oily areas and BOOM the oil magically vanishes into the ball never to be seen again! This is an item that #tiktokmademebuy for sure! I saw a video on TikTok and immediately went on the hunt only to be disappointed that this item was sold out everywhere! I eventually got added to a waiting list her on Amazon and once they had it in stock again, they charged my card and sent it my way! If you have the chance to purchase this and you have oily skin, get yourself on the waiting list if you need to and just kick it until it shows up. You will be pleased. Thank me later. ;)" —Veronica Cooper

    Get it from Amazon for $9.98.

    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!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    BuzzFeed editor Marquaysa Battle is *all* about these sneakers:

    "I own a black pair of these and they're seriously one of the comfiest friggin' sneakers I've ever worn (the other is a pair of New Balance) in my 29 years of life. The 'Cloudfoam' insole really does make it feel like your feet are walking on clouds. I thought that feeling might go away after several months of wear but the sneakers remain fluffy and relaxing. The sneakers were so comfortable that I started wearing them to the gym, to work, and even matching them with cute dresses for going-out looks. You'll probably want to order two pairs of these babies so you don't wear out a single pair after you fall in love. I bought my mom a pair as well."

    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.

    Amazon, amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Nothing fancy here. The product is quite simple. And quite effective. Hooking it around the steering wheel, the desk provides a nice, firm flat surface to put your meals upon. Or perhaps your laptop/tablet. This is a whole lot better than laying your meal across your lap or the seat next to you. And when done it's direct and simple to pop the thing off the steering wheel and put it back out of the way. A handy thing to have in your car in general." —Madoc Pope

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    Promising review: "To say the least, I was pretty apprehensive about using what is advertised as a 'Colossal Foot Rasp.' Pretty terrifying labeling if you ask me. But HOLY CRAP this thing works. I had to do a before and after shot. It looks Photoshopped but it absolutely is not!" —Derrick

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    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*.

    Did I mention it's made of cotton and bamboo? That's right, it's vegan! 

    Promising review: "This facial brush is the perfect stiffness for my taste and easy to hold with its rounded, textured shape. With little effort, I can get a satisfying scrub that exfoliates without scraping too gently or too hard. I have sensitive, slightly oily skin and this is great." —Molly

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    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.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I wanted my hair to be natural, but wanted to blend my color more naturally with my silver without chemicals or fake-looking colors. After applying dry and leaving on until product dried several times, before each shampoo (2x/week for me), I’ve achieved full, natural-looking color and healthy, natural hair. WOW. This lasts over two weeks. It doesn’t fade quickly. I am in the sun all day hiking and working on my vehicles and yard. The in-between levels look rose gold, which is beautiful and totally IN STYLE! I now have the option to color or not. I’m going to have to stock up on this product." —Jennifer Jones

    Get it from Amazon for $9.97.

    Promising review: "I LOVE these shoes! I was greeted by the smell of sweet leather. I immediately put them on and couldn’t believe how cute they were in person! I’m normally a size 6.5 and have a wider foot across the toes. I ordered the size 6 and they fit perfectly. I wore them all day and no issues, no blisters, no 'new shoe' uncomfortableness. I would highly recommend!" —Memphis Market Co. David and Grace

    The cleanser is formulated without parabens, silicones, or sulfates and is vegan and cruelty-free.

    Promising review: "This was definitely successful in clearing up breakouts. It wasn't instant and took a few days of use, but it was effective in shrinking breakouts in two to three days. It also wasn't overly drying." —Rachel O

    Get it from Versed for $16.99.

    43. A pack of all-natural bottle cleaning tablets to get rid of those stains, smells, and tastes making you wonder if it's time for a new thermos. *SPOILER ALERT* It's probably not! But it is time for these tablets to get in there and do the hard cleaning for you — no scrubbing or extra effort required on your part!

    These are biodegradable and odor-free.

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug — I tried everything. A bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY, without even scrubbing. They look brand new. What a magical product. No weird smell or taste afterward, either. I liked it so much I used it on another HydroFlask I use primarily to hold my Bloody Mary mix in the fridge. I couldn't put anything else in it because it would always taste like spicy tomato juice. Bottle Bright to the rescue! No residual smell or taste anymore. AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING." —Amazon Customer

    44. A set of car hooks so your bags and jackets don't have to spend the entire trip rolling around on the floor, dumping out their contents everywhere, and winding up covered in whatever grime has been hiding under your seats since the beginning of time.
