    We asked the BuzzFeed Community (and asked again!) to tell us about the best products they've bought for $25 or less, and here are some of their responses!

    1. A Wet Brush, which is especially designed with flexible bristles to detangle hair painlessly without causing extra breakage.

    instagram.com

    "I have wavy and unruly hair, and brushing my hair after a shower was always a process. Not anymore! Do yourself a favour and invest in a Wet Brush for every member of your family! No more painful knots!" —Sarhines

    "My Wet Brush! Greatest money I’ve ever spent." —samanthaf42083e61a

    One mom reviewer says it's the only way she can brush out her daughter's hair without a screaming match, another person talks about how it doesn't rip out chunks of hair.

    Get a pack of two on Amazon Canada for $21.99.

    2. A bottle of Bar Keeper's Friend powder or soft cleanser, which you can use as your one-stop cleaning products for almost every surface in your entire home — like all that cooked-on grime on your stovetop you've never been able to coax off.

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

    "I use it to clean literally everything in my apartment. I even got coffee stains off my little white table where my Keurig is. You can also polish pots and stove tops, get rid of grime from showers, tubs, and toilets — the list goes on." —Kayla Suazo

    The main difference between the two = the powder cleanser's more abrasive (i.e., it might scratch the surfaces you use it on) than the soft cleanser (which is non-scratch). Neither product uses bleach. Kayla's also written an in-depth review of both products, if you want to read more.

    Get the powder cleanser for $10.19, and the soft cleanser for $2.99 (as an add-on item), both on Amazon Canada.

    3. A mini fan you can plug into almost any USB charger port for a quick cool-down anytime you're stuck somewhere too toasty-warm while working on your computer.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    "I’m in college and walking around campus can make me really sweaty, but my USB fan always cools me down when I get back to my dorm. I just plug it into my laptop." —sydneyjrw

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $14.99, and stay cool, friends.

    4. A lipstick-sized external battery that holds a full backup charge so you never have that drop in the pit of your stomach when it's noon and your phone's already at 20% battery.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    jenisist

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $19.99.

    5. An ice roller you can use on your skin to help it absorb serums or at the very least reduce puffiness — you just pop it in the freezer overnight and it'll be ready to, um, well, roll in the morning.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    "This ice roller to push in serum or help with puffiness, especially after a night out." —stephaniet4d8392e99

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $14.95.

    6. A classic clay mask that makes an incredible difference for many people who struggle with acne, redness, and other skin problems.

    BuzzFeed

    "I first learned about this product on BuzzFeed actually, it’s great for stopping acne in its tracks and it’s cheap. Plus it’s got over 3,500 reviews!" —chessaf

    You simply mix it with apple cider vinegar, water, or half-and-half of each (for medium intensity), smear it over your face, leave for ten minutes or so, and rinse. Read our full write-up on this clay mask here!

    Get a one-pound jar for $12.34 or a two-pound jar for $18.79, both from Amazon Canada.

    7. A pack of two discreet silicone anti-slip holders that will make your glasses and sunglasses fit perfectly and stop sliding down your nose.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    "Garrett has these for his glasses and he says they changed his life!" —Elena Garcia

    Get a pair from Amazon Canada for $12.98.

    8. A meat chopping and mixing tool that makes one of the easiest cooking tasks — browning ground beef, chicken, or turkey — even simpler.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    "A game changer when cooking any ground meat: the meat chopper utensil! My husband jokes that it’s the best thing I’ve ever bought for the kitchen, but it really is. It makes it super easy to chop any ground meat (or even scrambled eggs) in the pan. It’s heat-safe and I even leave mine standing up in the pan while the meat cooks." —pattycakes

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $4.99 (as an add-on item).

    9. A fully-equipped mandoline slicer at a price that seems too good to be true, but that's actually legit and going to help you slice and grate veggies like never before.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    "The Byetoo mandoline slicer!! Only $19 and you can make zoodles, long thin veggie slices, and so much more. I was a little hesitant because of the price, but this thing has not failed me, I tell everyone I know how much I love this!" —maryk43e61b175

    It apparently doesn't come with instructions, though, so check out tutorials on YouTube like this one. Though if you've used a mandoline in the past, it looks pretty standard.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $18.99. And consider a pair of cut-resistant gloves, which many reviewers like to use with mandolines no matter what brand they own, $3.99 on Amazon Canada.

    10. Some long-handled iced tea spoons designed for reaching the bottom of pitchers of cold tea on hot days, so they can also easily stir smoothies and drinks in oversized tumblers.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    "They're really just longer regular spoons. But they are awesome for bottom of jars, tall coffee cups and 1,000,000 other things." —dawnae

    Get a set of six stainless steel iced tea spoons on Amazon Canada for $14.98.

    11. A set of four microfibre makeup remover cloths that coax pretty much every bit of product off your face using just water, so even if you're lazy your face won't hit the pillow with remnants of the day's eyeliner.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    "One of the best feelings after a long day is taking a hot shower and rubbing your eyes. The downside is coming out of the shower looking like a raccoon that got punched in the face. After seeing MANY reviews on BuzzFeed I decided to try some and it’s the best decision I’ve ever made. Literally just need to get them wet, all eye makeup comes off in one to two wipes. With the lighter colours of the cloths it’s easy to see when you’ve gotten all of it off. I RECOMMEND FOR EVERY PERSON TO EVER WEAR MAKEUP. You will not be disappointed." —shelbycobrad

    You can also use 'em with your preferred makeup remover, of course. And they're machine washable, although if you're concerned about washing microfibre because of microplastics, check out the Guppyfriend Washing Bag.

    Get the pack of four from Amazon Canada for $14.99.

    12. A vacuum-insulated drink tumbler to keep your coffee hot and your ice water cold much longer than any regular cup or mug possibly could.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    "One word: YETI. I’m not a big spender but I’ve been drinking out of this cup everyday for a year. My drinks are cold all day and I love that!" —samanthac4e4b80c19

    Get a 10 oz stainless steel tumbler on Amazon Canada for $14.98 (available in seven colours), or browse the other Yeti drinkware available on Amazon Canada.

    13. Or a different vacuum-sealed travel mug with a leak-proof lid that keeps drinks hot for up to seven hours — and cold for up to EIGHTEEN.

    instagram.com

    "The Contigo coffee travel mug. Boy, does it keep coffee hot. It's my faithful companion every day. I wouldn't survive the work day without it. Thanks, Contigo!"

    namdjoker

    Get one on Amazon Canada for $22.99+ (available in 16 oz or 20 oz sizes and four colours, though the colours available depend on the size you want).

    14. The Phone Loop, an elastic strap that attaches to your case and gives you a better grip on your phone without adding any bulk.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    "It's a ribbon that goes on your case and gives you a lot of space to slide your fingers under it. I had a phone socket, but it interferes with my wireless charger; this doesn't. Also it has super strong adhesive so I never have to worry about dropping my phone."

    noyacat470

    Get one from Amazon Canada for $9.99 each (available in four colours/patterns).

    15. The ultimate bathroom combo: a Squatty Potty toilet stool so your poops will be easier than you ever imagined they possibly could be (even if you have some GI problems).

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    "The Squatty Potty, hands down. I have always had GI issues and the Squatty Potty has helped tremendously." —ihategnomes

    "I’m *this close* to buying a Squatty Potty for work!" —sarahm48bb65948

    The Squatty Potty raises your knees so you're in a more natural position for pooping, which thousands of reviewers (including a BuzzFeeder) find makes the whole process so much better.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $29.99.

    16. And a bottle of before-you-go toilet spray to imprison any forthcoming smells in the toilet bowl (the only thing your nose will be able to detect is the spray's pleasant scent).

    instagram.com

    "The best money I ever spent on a cheap 'gimmicky' item is Poo-Pourri. Every single item has a wonderful scent that completely traps the scent of “devil donuts” in the bowl while doubling as an air freshener as well. I definitely recommend the small sizes so you can shove them in your pockets discreetly as you creep away to the bathroom to do your business in the middle of a work day." —cameryng

    Get a 100-use bottle on Amazon Canada for $18.95+ (available in 24 scents).

    17. And a TubShroom drain protector so your shower pipes will never clog with hair.

    Sarah Aspler

    "Can’t live without them!" —sarahm48bb65948

    Read one BuzzFeeder's full review of the TubShroom here.

    Get one on Amazon Canada for $14.99 (available in four colours).

    18. A fabric shaver that cuts all the pills off your favourite knits so your clothes look new again with almost no effort.

    It also works well on furniture upholstery, and has three depth settings you can adjust depending on the fabric you're working with.

    19. A silicone menstrual cup because once you get the hang of it, you'll save money and the environment AND just generally be much less inconvenienced by your period.

    20. A cozy sweater-wrapped hot water bottle to warm your cold toes or nose all through the winter nights without the same risks of leaving a heating pad or heated blanket plugged in. Plus it can help relieve sore muscles!

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    "So perfect for sore muscles, cramps, or when you just can’t warm up!" —mollysamson12

    Get a set of two bottles and two cozies on Amazon Canada for $27.99 (note that the manufacturer recommends not pouring boiling water directly in the bottle, but instead to let it cool just little bit first).

    21. A beachy hair waver so you can rock loose texture (without putting in more than a few minutes of effort) whenever the mood strikes you, even when you find yourself awake and bored up at 3 a.m. and get the random urge to do your hair.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    "The Bed Head Wave Artist changed my hair game for life! It’s like crimping beach perfect beach waves and takes 15 minutes top for my long hair. Can’t say enough!" —karriel48a8abe67

    22. A set of six packing cubes, because you can efficiently fit lots of clothing in your bag without messing up your careful folding and organization just because you need that one pair of pants that happen to be all the way at the bottom, beneath your neatly stacked tops.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    "Packing cubes. Seriously, I can’t pack without them no more. When I first bought them I was unsure about how useful they would be, but after the very first trip with them I’m a converted. It reduced the mess and space in my bag, I swear I can fit double of the things in my baggage (which translates in more space for stuff I buy abroad!), not to mention all your clothes get to your destination folded and less wrinkled. Super useful."

    hufflegirl

    With these, you simply remove your bag of tops and your bag of socks and undies, unzip your bag of pants, get what you need, then throw the other bags back in! Zero mess, zero stress.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    "The one thing I buy over and over again is a cup warmer. I'm a sipper of tea and I use this all day, every day. When not using it for drinks you can warm candle cubes in a dish for scent without a flame."
