26 Products With Before And After Photos We Swear We Didn't Photoshop

Photoshop who?

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. Temptooth, a temporary solution to replace missing teeth. It comes with all the materials and instructions you need to create a natural looking tooth and safely restore your smile.

This uses high grade, non-toxic, and FDA-approved polymer plastic to create a replacement tooth. Each kit contains enough material to create up to ten teeth. Also included: detailed, patented instructions; a web link for 3D video demonstration; and free dental tools made from high-quality German steel.

Of course, it's just a temporary cosmetic replacement while you work with your dentist to find a more permanent solution. One of these teeth lasts for a couple of months, and you have to remove it to eat and sleep. It's also not meant to create a multi-tooth bridge (though one reviewer seems to have had some success with that), and you shouldn't use it for emergency tooth repair at all.

Promising review: "A life saver. While waiting for an implant, I was using a flipper to cover a gap in my teeth. But, I had a kind of wild night and lost it and started to panic. I set up a dentist appointment to have one made again but was it was going to set me back around $500. It made no sense to spend so much money for something that I would only need for a month or two. That's when I gave this product a try, and I have no regrets. It's explained well and is easy to use. I can make spares. Highly recommend for anyone in a similar situation. No need to spend an exorbitant amount of money on a temporary flipper." —Jibran Khan

Get it from Amazon for $32.75.

2. A pumice stone so you can remove rust and lime deposit buildup from your toilet and make going to the bathroom just a little more pleasant.

Promising review: "Works absolute wonders! My toilet had the most disgusting black rings in it that looked like something they weren't, if you know what I mean. And despite cleaning it every single day, 15 MINUTES AT A TIME with bleach and a toilet brush to NO AVAIL, these rings would not budge, or even fade in the least. I was mortified to use my own toilet, it was so gross looking. Then, I chanced upon this pumice stone ring remover on Amazon and ordered it. It worked IMMEDIATELY. The rings were gone in less than three minutes of scrubbing. It was a miracle!" —M.Miller

Get it from Amazon for $9.37.

3. A shampoo that'll relieve flaking, scaling, and itching caused by dandruff, which is pretty much the bane of any scalp's existence.

Promising review: "MIRACLE PRODUCT! If you have a flaky scalp from dandruff, BUY THIS. 💯 I was about to go to the dermatologist if this stuff didn’t work. Thank goodness I saved myself hundreds of dollars by giving this product a shot. I used it four of five times (over a month) and it cleared my scalp almost completely. One more use and my scalp will be 120% healed! This stuff blew my mind. Totally worth it." —Chris

Get it from Amazon for $14.84.

4. A mold and mildew removing gel so you can finally get rid of that nasty buildup in the corners of the bathroom that keeps magically reappearing every time you *think* you've finally gotten rid of it.

Promising review: "I don't write reviews very often but this gel is amazeballs. After living in my place for a few years, my shower was super gross. I tried to use elbow grease and disinfecting wipes to fix the mold and mildew but failed. I thought I had to continue to shower forever in filth or just burn my house down and take the mold with it. Then I discovered this product through BuzzFeed (of all places) and decided, what the heck, to give it a try. Holy moly, am I glad that I did. I just left it on for four to five hours, per the instructions, and every place this gel touched, the mold/mildew disappeared. I am so happy I gave it a chance and now my shower is fresh and I don't have to commit arson." —Gracielou Freebush

Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

5. A set of produce savers that'll keep your fruits and veggies fresh much longer than a regular food storage container (up to two weeks!).

Walmart, Natalie Brown

Be sure to check out a BuzzFeed writer's in-depth review of these produce savers.

Promising review: "I received one of these in the Review program, and liked it so much I decided to purchase the set. They are great for any kind of produce. The vents allow just the right amount of oxygen and Co2. I am even using them for mushrooms! The product information states that the vents will last the length of the units themselves. These storage units are a little higher priced than some, but they will save me money in the paper towels, aluminum foil, and special bags I was using to keep produce fresh. And the quality of the units themselves is fantastic! They open and close well, too. One of my least favorite chores is wasting food... this is a great solution!" —valcin

6. A 2-in-1 cradle cap comb to gently loosen and remove dry skin from your bambino's scalp using soft rubber bristles and a fine-toothed comb.

Cradle cap, which is also known as seborrheic dermatitis, occurs on the scalp and is a common condition that affects infants. Parents naturally worry when they see the flaking skin that is the major symptom of cradle cap, but in most cases the condition is not serious or long-lasting (read more about it from the Seattle Children's Hospital and Mayo Clinic, and of course call your doctor if you have questions). Using this cradle cap brush and comb could help you alleviate the symptoms.

Promising review: "The pictures posted here are legit. It makes removal so much easier and gives more consistent removal than my previous method of washcloths or just scratching the cradle cap off with my fingernails. It’s amazing and gross and wonderful. And, my babe doesn’t even flinch when I spend 10 minutes clearing his scalp of all the goo. It seems to be soothing to him. I just apply baby shampoo, then brush a little with the blue brush. Then I slowly start to comb in sections all in one direction. Then I go back and forth in multiple directions. It’s shocking the amount of dead skin that comes off. I’ve even used it successfully in his eyebrows (he gets some cradle cap there, too). This is a KEEPER!!" —ZMomUtah

Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

7. A wart remover that uses salicylic acid to treat even the toughest of warts, except for worrywarts, aka the only type this can't bestow its superpowers upon to remove.

Promising review: "I was skeptical about trying this over the counter wart removal. My daughter had gotten a large wart on her finger and we went to the doctor to have them do the liquid nitrogen treatment. Two hundred dollars out of pocket later...and the wart didn't go away. You can imagine how frustrated I was. Decided to give this stuff a try. About a week later and her wart is completely gone!! It was easy to use, just paint the drop on (yes the product is super thick, it's supposed to be that way). Definitely wish I had tried this first instead of wasting $200!" —Lici

Get it from Amazon for $6.96.

8. A car scratch remover because you had a bad day and accidentally backed into some trash cans. It's okay though, just buff it out with this magical formula and a bit of elbow grease.

This is best for buffing out scratches that you *can't* feel with the tip of a fingernail. Anything you can feel with your nails is deep enough that you should probs head to the body shop instead.

Promising review: "This stuff is actually incredible! I don’t usually write reviews, but the previous owner of my car had a bumper sticker that they scrapped off with a knife and scratched the car all over in the process. Today it’s barely noticeable!! It of course didn’t take out the deep scratches, but it got rid of more than I thought it would. My only wish is that I knew about this product when I bought the car six years ago." —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

9. A tongue scraper that'll eliminate all that yucky bacteria buildup that your toothbrush couldn't get off, making your breath smell a whole lot better.

Promising review: "It's hard to review this product without grossing people out but I think the truth needs to get out. There is some nasty stuff on your tongue that a toothbrush cannot remove, especially in the back. This thing allows you to remove it easily without gagging yourself by trying to shove a toothbrush down your throat. I was definitely surprised the first time I used it how much material I removed and yes that stuff smells bad. After that first time I couldn't get anywhere near as much off of my tongue which tells me that the material had been there a while. My breath is noticeably better now. This is a very simple tool and it cleans up well since it's just a piece of stainless steel and rubber handles." —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $6.02.

10. A foot file so you can ~crack~ the code to having nice and smooth feet. Carefully use the file to shave away dead skin and polish those puppies 'til they're soft and clean.

Promising review: "I am just sitting here admiring my baby-smooth, soft heels...and it is all thanks to this product. I have been trying EVERYTHING to get rid of the gross calluses on my heels, and nothing was ever fixing it. I found this on Amazon, and decided to give it a try because of all the great reviews...and it is totally legit. It took all my calluses right off, and now I use it every few days for a little upkeep if I notice any hint of roughness starting to come. This thing is awesome. Definitely buy it!!" —Luisa Rueckert

Get it from Amazon for $7.37.

11. A bottle cleaning tablet you can drop into travel mugs, water bottles, or kettles to finally remove those nasty stains you thought would forever be a part of them.

Promising review: "I usually don't write reviews for things I buy but this product is absolutely incredible and I had to let everyone who was considering it know. I have a Contigo coffee thermos and the bottom is really narrow, making it super hard to clean and causing gross coffee residue to build up at the bottom. I tried brushes, dish detergent, and baking soda but nothing could get it off. Then I finally bought a packet of these and after one use I couldn't believe my eyes. The cup looked as shiny and new as when I first bought it. Officially hooked!" —Kathy Z.

Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $7.99.

12. A bottle of oven cleaner that'll help you destroy those scary and sticky burnt blobs of food from the bottom of your oven using little to no elbow grease.

Promising review: "I can't even explain how disgusting my oven was. So. Much. Gross. Seriously thick greasy tar was everywhere. I thought it was a lost cause. On a whim I bought this just to try since it was on sale and holy moly! Not only is my oven clean, but I didn't even have to scrub it! Just wiped it up with a sponge after two hours. I'm super impressed!" —A_ostermiller

Get it from Amazon for $4.97.

13. A rust-removing gel spray if you've become a little, well, rusty about doing your chores and neglected the hard water stains in your bathroom. Lucky for you, this spray will make it look good as new.

Promising review: "I don't write reviews but I do read them before I buy anything. I just had to write one on this product. Seeing is believing. Not even Mr. Clean Magic Erasers touched the rust stains on our bathtub. But now it's shiny and looks brand new. I sprayed it on (yes, it's more of a liquid than a gel but it still works). I came back an hour later and wiped it off. No elbow grease needed. Majority of the rust was gone, only thing left was soap scum and that easily wiped away. I'll be buying this stuff again!" —NMP

Get it from Amazon for $5.

14. A heavy-duty cream that uses chamomile and peppermint oil to help breathe new life back into your skin. Not only might it help minimize redness and flakes, but it may also reduce some of the pain that comes along with some skin conditions.

Promising review: "My husband suffers from rosacea and dry patches on his face. Since we are both pharmacists, we thought prescription ointments and creams would be the best solution to his problem. Even though they worked, the results were short term. With this product, dry patches have subsided and he doesn't mind the minty scent at all. I never write reviews on Amazon but I feel like people should definitely try this face cream if they are suffering from the same symptoms and are tired of buying creams that simply don't stand up to their claims." —Yancy C.

Get it from Amazon for $29.97 (available in two scents).

15. A bottle of pet ear wax cleaner so your furry friend can live their best life *without* all that crud in their ear.

Promising review: "I bought this for my cat because he had ear mites when I got him and when they cleared up, his ears were left with a bunch of nasty wax and I couldn't get all of it out in fear of pushing it farther down. This stuff brought EVERYTHING up! I LOVE it and HIGHLY recommend for anyone with an animal with dirty ears! My cat has stopped scratching at his ears finally because they are nice and clean!" —Tricia S.

Get it from Amazon for $10.19.

16. An applebutter lip mask to nourish your pout as you're sleeping so you can wake up with luscious and moisturized lips.


This is made with apple water and mint extract. The mint might help soothe stressed lips, while a unique blend of nine oils high in vitamins A, C, and E is meant to help lock in moisture.

Promising review: "I have suffered from severely chapped lips for a long time. I have ten or more lip balms that I put through a rotation to try to keep my lips hydrated. I tried this product and loved it immediately. It is now part of my nighttime routine. I just scoop a tiny amount onto the spatula and spread it on my lips prior to bed. In the morning, I wake up with soft and hydrated lips that last all day. I will definitely re-order when needed, but that may be a while because a little goes a long way with this product." —Brianna

Get it on Amazon for $15.

17. A semi-permanent brow tint kit you can apply once every few weeks to get flawless brows — now you won't have to waste time filling them in every morning.

This kit was designed to help cover gray hair in beards, eyebrows, and roots, but many reviewers use it as an eyebrow tint and say it lasts between a week to two weeks.

Promising review: "WHERE HAS THIS PRODUCT BEEN?! I’ve spent the past few years filling in my eyebrows daily. It’s been a battle to keep them looking full, but still natural and not overdone. The entire process from opening the box until washing it off was about 15 minutes. The directions were super simple and easy to follow. The capsule opened easily and I was able to re-cap it for future use since I didn’t even use half. It mixed and applied well. I read other reviews that stated six minutes worked best so that’s what I did, and it was perfect for my brows." —Heather Lespinasse

Get it from Amazon for $17.98 (20 applications; available in medium brown; also available in natural black for $19).

18. A fabric shaver to help you save gloves and sweaters from the ~ghost of winters past~ by removing those pesky little pills.

Check out a deep dive on this game-changing sweater shaver.

Promising review: "Okay, I don’t normally rave about things like this. I bought this on a whim in a last attempt to save my favorite duvet cover. The pills had gotten to the point where it was seriously uncomfortable to sleep with them getting all up in my leg space. I thought I was going to have to get a new duvet cover entirely. Along came this lil' baby. Not only is my duvet cover basically brand new, but I have found a new hobby. I’m depilling everything. Sweatshirts, leggings, blankets, socks, anything that looks like it needs some love. It does the job quickly and leaves everything looking fresh. Hi, I’m obsessed. I can’t stop. I should send this back. I’ve started asking if my neighbors need anything depilled. I’m going to buy one of these for everyone in my life. Everyone needs to own this. Take it away from me." —Sydney Jensen

Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

19. A wrinkle release spray that Amazon reviewers are calling "voodoo" and "the devil's magic" because that's just how *unbelievably* well it works.

Katie Glider / Via BuzzFeed

Here's how it works: Hang your piece of clothing on a hanger. Give it a few spritzes all over or, if desired, only in the wrinkled areas. Lastly, give it a few tugs to help smooth out the clothing and relax the fibers. Need more proof? Check out This De-Wrinkle Spray Is Perfect For Anyone Who's Never Touched An Iron.

Promising review: "This stuff is a lifesaver! Well, a time-saver extraordinaire. I have been using Downy Wrinkle Release for years. It has a fresh scent and it gets wrinkles out of almost every fabric with no ironing, steaming, or effort on my part. This works great on cotton but also on synthetic materials. I have used it on satin and it didn't leave any marks. You just mist it on the fabric and give the item a little tug here and there to straighten it out, and let the spray dry. Bye, bye wrinkles! I even used it on my new living room curtains while they were on the rod. Those wrinkles were super hard to get out, but two applications did it. I love this spray and can't be without it. I haven't had to iron in years. It also works nicely to freshen clothes that may smell stale or are not freshly washed. A few mists and the clothes smell like they just came out of the dryer." —PattyT

Get a two pack from Amazon for $14.38.

20. A pet hair–removing stone so you can get rid of your furry friend's fur or hair without having to lug out the vacuum.

Promising review: "Holy cow this is magic. I have a 230 pound Mastiff. I have purchased any and everything claiming to get dog hair off car carpet. I have used at least three different vacuums and attachments. Lately I have been using a microfiber towel because it had some grip. Then this piece of magic arrived. It gets every single hair no matter how embedded. There were hairs I had a hard time removing with my fingers. The Fur-Zoff pulled them right out. This has cut my hair removal time in half! Thank you for this savior of a tool." —David R.

Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

21. A tiny toenail brace that will fix big toenail problems. It'll flatten out your nail to take away the pain of curved toenails and prevent them from becoming ingrown.


The kit comes with ten toenail braces and the materials needed to apply them. Results can be seen in *just* one to three days!

Promising review: "I never realized how curved and not-ok my toenails were. I thought the pain I had was just normal and a fact of life. Only when I read about the Curve Correct product did I realize that I had a major problem that could be resolved! Now I'm on the way to normal, flat toenails that DON'T grow curved into my skin!" —Jamie H.

Get the kit from Amazon for $46.99.

22. A bottle of tire shine that uses a pH-neutral formula to quickly and easily clean caked-on brake dust and grime from your wheels.

Promising review: "I've used various brands of wheel cleaner over the years with mixed but never great results. This product was recommended by a friend and I was skeptical. It's a bit more expensive than some of the other products but the results are well worth the investment. Unlike cheap wheel cleaner that runs off almost immediately, Car Guys Wheel and Tire Cleaner adheres to the tire and wheel allowing the product to dissolve the dirt and grime. As an added bonus the product is Made in the USA, Environmentally Responsible, Works Great AND comes with a 100% SATISFACTION MONEY BACK GUARANTEE!!!" —Lyle N.

Get it from Amazon for $16.97.

23. A drain snake to finally unclog all that nasty gunk from your drain and so you can take a shower *without* having to stand in a pool of water. The best part? You won't have to call a plumber or take apart the drain. / /

Promising review: "I recently moved into a house and I noticed that Liquid Plumber wasn't doing the job on my drains. I bought this on a whim and I was shocked how well it worked. It doesn't come with directions, so I flushed some hot water down the drain first. Then I wiggled it down the drain and circled it around the best I could since the top part of my drain wouldn't come off. I kept going until all the hair and grime came out. I even got out a plastic razor cover that was stuck in the drain. I used one to clean all my bathroom sinks and showers then threw it away. I have two to use later. For $6.50 how can you not give it a try!" —Stephanie Portman

Get a pack of three from Amazon for $5.99.

24. A hair removal gel for when you're fed up with your good ole' traditional razor. Toss that sucker in the trash and get *gellin'* for an extremely soft and nick-free finish.

Promising review: "I have really sensitive skin, so I was scared to use this product. I thought as soon as it touched my skin I'd be burned and have never-ending pain, but that was not the case. I only left it on for about five minutes and that's when the magic happened. I used the spatula and started scraping a small area of my leg and the hair just fell right off. I'm silky smooth and couldn't be happier. Also, the product did not smell, contrary to other reviewers claims!" —Private

Get it from Amazon for $7.59.

25. A mascara that'll coat your eyelashes with super-tiny thickening fibers *and* a magnifying gel to achieve long, lush lashes that widen your eyes. Plus, it's smudge-proof and waterproof so you can go about your daily activities without having to worry about looking like you have a black eye.


This lil' miracle worker is cruelty-free!

Promising review: "I’ve always wanted long eyelashes. I tried eyelash extensions once, but my eyes are too sensitive for them so I couldn’t keep them on. I’ve tried a lot of different regular mascaras and different types of fiber lashes, like Younique ($13.27). OH. MY. GOD. I was so impressed with how much longer they were and how natural they look. It's easy to apply, not time consuming, lightweight, and feels just like regular mascara. AND at the end of a long work day, they look great enough to not need a retouch!" —Kristen Burk

Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in two shades).

26. A fan-favorite Tubshroom to avoid getting into a ~hairy~ situation with your drain. Pop this in so it can catch what you shed while washing your hair and save you from having to call the plumber every other week.

Promising review: "This thing does its job and more. I had another female move into my house and had issues with the drain. After snaking the drain, I quickly found the problem: hair. It's gross but it's a reality. If you live with women who have long hair, their hair will wind up in the shower drain. After about a month, I can say it definitely does its job. It is absolutely disgusting how much hair this thing catches and even more disgusting cleaning the hair off of it, but I'd rather the hair be in the garbage than in my drain causing issues." —Megan S.

Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in six colors).
