    1. Baby Foot, an absolutely amazing lavender-scented foot peel to make old and dead skin peel off like wild and basically make it look like you got whole new feet.

    revirewer's cracked foot before, peeling skin during, and smooth foot after

    This product is a dream come true for anyone who gets a kind of sick satisfaction from peeling off dead skin (and let's face it, that's all of us, right?).

    Promising review: "This mask comes with two baggies, and you place each of your feet into its own bag and tape it up to avoid leaking. The moment you put them on, the jelly-type liquid travels all over your feet and in between your toes, and it's the most relaxing feeling ever. You can feel your skin drinking in the moisture and nutrients. While you do not see results right away, your feet will smell amazing for a whole day after the treatment. After six or seven days, all the dead, dry skin starts falling off, and your feet really do feel baby soft. I never thought I had dry feet, but oh boy, was I wrong!" —Melvika

    2. An amazing stain remover for concrete sure to have oil and grease stains belting out the melancholy refrain of a truly underrated Miley Cyrus bop. ♫ "So I guess the drivewayyyyyyyyy will be the end of the road..." ♫

    Promising review: "This product worked like a miracle. Very easy to use. The oil stain in my driveway was over 18 months old. I read the reviews, so I cleaned my driveway with car wash solution first to open up the pores in the concrete, let it dry completely, shook the bottle really well, poured it on the concrete, took a push broom and pushed the liquid in the direction of the lines in the concrete to make sure it absorbed, and in the Vegas heat it dried completely from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Be patient and make sure it dries completely. I used the push broom and brushed away the powder residue and the biggest oil spot and others were gone. I ordered two more bottles to do the rest of my driveway. I think the key is to cleanse it first to loosen the oil, then use it. In three hours the 18-month-old oil spots were gone. I highly recommend this product." —Loves

    3. Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later eyeshadow primer, a cruelty-free, waterproof base to keep your shadows from creasing and to really make colors pop. And trust me, you will be thanking it later when your look is still perfect after hours of wear.,

    Check out BuzzFeed's full write-up on this primer.

    Promising review: "I don't really know anything about makeup, but I attended a wedding, and I felt like it was appropriate for me to wear a little. My problem was that my eyes are hooded, and eyeshadow pigments always end up along my hidden crease, creating a huge mess. My sister, a makeup lover, told me that all I need was a good eye primer that would hold the pigments in place. I don't really know how to blend, but with this, my drugstore eyeshadow pigment stayed on my lids for eight hours with very slight fading. This definitely gets five stars." —Tabitha Reed

    4. paws-itively amazing rubber pet hair broom with a built-in squeegee designed to sweep up all that shedding (and even liquids!) like no other. It's def a must for anyone who ever has to clean up after their pet, but can be used on non-fur baby-related spills too.

    Two Golden Retrievers posing next to the broom and a pile of hair about as big as one of them
    A dog next to the broom, a cheeky sign, and a pile of hair about the size of a sheet of paper

    Since it's basically a giant squeegee, you can even use it on cars and windows! And psst...if you're wondering, the sign next to the pooch on the right reads "This is our new carpet broom. THIS is who is evicted from our bedroom. This is the gross ball of hair collected from our carpet."

    Promising review: "LIFE-CHANGER. We have two very floofy cats and I have long, thick hair, so needless to say there is a lot of shedding in our house. I could tell our vacuum wasn't quite doing the trick and I happened to stumble upon this item that looked to be the solution. WOW. First of all, it's a bit of a workout if you've got a medium-pile carpet like I do. I use short, firm strokes with the squeegee side and it pulls the hair up instantly. It's tedious work to do a whole room, but the satisfaction you get when you see all the hair makes it so worth it. Then you'll do a second pass in high-traffic areas and see how much MORE hair there is and wonder how you ever lived like that. Once you've got a nice pile, you can pick the clump of fur up by hand. I like to give it a quick vacuum after to get the dust and dirt that comes up. I haven't used it on our laminate flooring, but I'm sure that will blow me away too. This item is a complete must-have for anyone who owns a furry pet. This broom will absolutely outshine any expensive 'pet-rated' vacuum cleaner out there." —Leanna G

    Get it from Amazon for $12.44 (also available in a collapsible version).

    5. A bold color-changing nail polish that adjusts based on temperature to seriously upgrade your manicure game. It'll be one hue when hot and another when cold, so you don't have to commit to just one gorgeous shade and can get a cool gradient effect as it changes.

    reviewer's nails sparkly teal, then changing to purple, then purple

    It's cruelty-free!

    Promising review: "My favorite nail polish. I was iffy when I first put it on; it seemed an awkward consistency for nail polish...I was happily surprised. It is matte and dries super fast, and after 2 coats and 10 minutes they were done. I was going to put a top coat over them for a glossier finish, but I ultimately just left them matte. It goes on and dries beautifully, it changes to purple in cold temperatures, and it DOES NOT CHIP OR PEEL like many thermal nail polishes. I washed dishes, gardened, cleaned, and even without a top coat my nails still look perfect. I will definitely be buying more — they're worth the price." —Samantha Martin

    Get it from Amazon for $16 (available in 10 colors).

    6. Debrox earwax removal drops to flush out all the gunk you might not even know is clogging your ears. What's that I hear? Oh, it must be the over 1,000 reviewers ~waxing~ poetic about how much they love this stuff.

    Promising review: "Many years ago, I had a pretty severe wax impaction issue. Went to the doctor and got my ear flushed. They recommended this to continue to deal with excess wax. So satisfying to see the wax flush out after using this. These days, my eczema and dry skin has resurfaced in my ears. So, now I use it to deal with the dry flaky skin in my ears. Put some drops in, let it fizz and bubble, and flush them out. The flakes come out easily — much better than itchy ears." —Kim

    Get it from Amazon for $5.98 (or $5.68 with the Subscribe & Save option).

    7. Sunny & Honey Carpet Miracle, a cruelty-free formula you can use in most any carpet cleaning machine to battle stains made by humans and pets alike. Your dog isn't the only one who sometimes has accidents, though yours are less the bathroom variety and more the spilling-a-full-glass-of-Merlot variety.

    It's from a family-run small business that specializes in cleaning products, especially ones for homes with pets!

    Promising review: "Worth every penny. I’ve bought this product so many times now I have it on autoship! Saw the reviews and figured I’d give it a try. My cat likes to pee over the litter box and stained the brand new carpet. I used this in my Bissell and it took all the stain and smell out!!! I’ll never use another cleaner." —Wendy

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97 (or Subscribe & Save for $18.97).

    8. A possibly magical wine stain remover capable of saving you from the effects of your clumsier moments. Pinot more clothing and carpeting casualties after a boozy night in (or out).

    Promising review: "My husband spilled a whole glass of wine, a bowl of salsa, and a bowl of guacamole on me. I used Wine Away when I got home four hours later, washed my dress, and it's perfect now! I really thought my dress was ruined and it's in the exact same condition it was before I went to the winery!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $11.47.

    9. The Guac-Lock, an amazing airtight container that'll allow you to enjoy guacamole goodness for days on end with no browning. It's the scientific advancement we always knew we needed but never thought possible — dreams really do come true.

    Promising review: "We have several avocado trees and make guacamole on a regular basis. The thing I hate most is how guacamole turns color after just a few minutes of being in the refrigerator. The Guac-Lock not only kept our guacamole fresh and tasting great, but it also kept it that way for over a week! (We did it as an experiment, not to actually eat it after a full week). I'm thoroughly impressed by how well it keeps guacamole fresh and how easy it is to use. If you're a lover of guacamole but hate how quickly it turns, this is definitely what you need! We've also purchased this to be included in a few housewarming gifts for new neighbors, along with avocados and tomatoes from our garden and it's been well-received. One of our neighbors asked where we got it because she loved it so much that she wanted to purchase one for her mother." —Dani Banani

    Get it from Amazon for $18.85.

    10. Washable microfiber mop pads that'll fit on your trusty Swiffer WetJet or similar mops so you can kick wasteful and pricey disposable pads to the curb. You probably don't even want to know how much gunk is still left after you clean with your current mop pads, but you'll get an idea if you look below. 🤢

    One pad can last up to 100 washes and works on pretty much any surface, from wood to tile to stone.

    Promising review: "I wanted to reduce waste with disposable pads and I was pleasantly surprised by these. This photo was AFTER I cleaned the floor with the disposable pad! I was able to get a super clean floor, spots were easier to clean up, and it didn’t sound like it was scratching my floors. This was easy to use, didn’t use more cleaner then the disposable pads, and got my floor cleaner. Definitely gonna but more if the two I got ever wear out." —Riley

    11. Mr. Clean Magic Eraser sheets to work the same magic as the classic sponge version but in smaller, tighter spaces to give your home an even deeper clean.

    Promising review: "I am OBSESSED. The large erasers get all crusty and crumbly after one use, and I never want to keep them after one use! These you can take, use, and toss! And sometimes I cut one sheet in half if I’m cleaning a small area like the knobs on the sink, etc. NEVER GOING BACK!" —R.S

    Get a pack of 48 from Amazon for $14.49 (or $13.77 with the Subscribe & Save option).

    12. Salicylic acid wart-removing adhesive bandages for anyone who's tried everything to get rid of a stubborn wart. These miracle workers are discreet enough to look like they're just covering up a paper cut or scratch, but will *finally* give you some relief.

    Promising review: "More than six years with a large, sometimes painful plantar wart on the bottom of my foot. The doctor tried freezing, I tried apple cider vinegar, aspirin, and freezing at home, over and over again...nothing worked. Never showing the bottom of my feet, refusing to get a pedicure with the girls and so, so embarrassed. It felt like I was doomed to have it forever; it was resistant to everything. Literally six years of fighting it and on a whim tried these because of the good reviews. ONE APPLICATION. I wore the bandage overnight. I didn’t think it did anything, but a few days later the wart just came off. I know it’s silly to be so emotional over a stupid wart but I’m telling you I nearly cried. I’ve never been so happy with a product in my life. Highly, highly recommend giving these a try if you’ve got a stubborn plantar wart." —Liz Dube

    Get a pack of 14 from Amazon for $6.96 (or $6.61 with the Subscribe & Save option).

    13. An impressive leather cleaner to buy when every other method you've tried has come so close, yet ~sofa~r from getting the stains out of your beloved leather couch (or jacket, or purse, or office chair...).

    Promising review: "I used this on my natural leather couch and wow! The results were amazing. This couch looks better than it did when I bought it new. Some reviews said the smell is bad, but it smells just like any other cleaner that doesn't have added fragrance. As soon as the solution dried, which took about 10 minutes, the smell was completely gone. I highly recommend this product if you have natural leather that you need cleaned." —Amanda Coffee

    Get it from Amazon for $18.95 (or $17.06 with the Subscribe & Save option).

    14. Mederma Scar Cream, which Taylor Swift should write a song about — it'll leave you breathless as it gets rid of a nasty scar.

    reviewer's large leg scar in august 2020, then it majorly faded in january 2021, then even more faded in may

    It works on everything from acne scars to surgical scars, and it also has SPF 30 to protect that beautiful skin of yours even further.

    Promising review: "If you have any scar that you want to protect from the sun this product is terrific! I had a surgery on my face and I used this cream to protect the scar from getting worsened by the summer sun. This cream is also mildly scented and it becomes very sheer/translucent after it is applied, which allows you to apply it no matter where you are going. Ultimately, I have noticed that using this cream not only protected my scar from getting worse, but it seems to have almost healed it altogether." —penny cameron

    Get it from Amazon for $20.34 (or $19.32 with the Subscribe & Save option).

    15. The Laundress Crease Release spray, aka vegan and cruelty-free magic in a bottle that can make wrinkled clothes wearable with just a few spritzes — and no iron. Best of all, you can even use it on clothes you're already wearing and didn't have time to press...because you were, well, ~pressed~ for time.

    Stephanie Hope/BuzzFeed

    BuzzFeed shopping writer Stephanie Hope swears by this stuff. She writes, "I'm 28, and I never actually learned how to use an iron. I mean I *get* how to do it, but have never owned one or done it myself. However, that doesn't mean that I walk around with wrinkled clothes! I own a personal steamer that I absolutely love, but when I'm feeling ~extra~ lazy or just running out of time, I have a secret weapon: the Laundress Crease Release spray. Hang your piece of clothing on a hanger or, if you're like me, just place it flat on your bed. Now you can either spritz all over *or* only on the wrinkled spots. Finally, give it a few gentle tugs to help smooth out the clothing and relax the fibers. And just like that, your shirt is looking way crisper and ready to be worn out! It's so simple to use, and it smells SO good! Sometimes I'll even just spray it on myself while I'm wearing the clothing! I find it so perfect for traveling, because I swear I have the Wrinkled Clothing Curse. Seriously, friends, this spray will save you time from ironing when you have simple little creases that don't require a whole ironing board to remove." Check out her full Laundress Crease Release review.

    16. Briogeo's Scalp Revival Charcoal and Coconut Oil Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo that's here to save the day if you're dealing with a dry, flaky scalp. It'll vanish said flakes so fast, it's basically magic.

    This stuff is cruelty-free and made with tea tree, coconut, and peppermint oils. Plus it's from a Black woman-owned brand! 🙌

    Promising review: "Totally amazing and beyond expectations. Chronic dry scalp for over a year, and with **one use**, super awesome results. My head feels fantastic and no more flaking. I'm going to buy a vat of this stuff and swim around in it! Really worth it." —Jana

    Get it from Amazon for $42.

    17. A stainless steel tongue scraper, aka the oral hygiene gadget you never knew you needed. Buh-bye, bad breath and aftertastes, I won't miss you. Also, let me just say that I have a very strong stomach for before and after photos...but this one got me.

    Promising review: "I was not ready for what was about to happen to me. I rushed to the bathroom to try out my new tongue scraper while my wife was shaking her head saying we have that on the back of our toothbrushes. I yelled 'No this is different!' Then she came into the bathroom to watch what I was about to do to my tongue. I made my first pass and about fainted with what came off of my 'clean' tongue. Been using for about 1.5 weeks now daily after I brush. LOVE it! Wife loves it now as well! So glad it came with two because if I had to choose..." —Luv2train

    18. An awww-inspiring teddy bear ears cat (or small dog) cap that may seem like more of a trick than a treat to your floofy friend, but is ~ear~ to bring smiles to all the humans of the house (and of Instagram). And if you don't have a pet, you can still get your daily dose of wholesome looking at the full gallery of review photos.,,

    19. Bio Oil, an amazing vitamin A and E formula that over 7,500 5-star reviewers swear by for working skincare miracles, from fading scars to smoothing and moisturizing. Basically, it's the secret ingredient your self-care routine has been missing.

    It really does work fast. I had an acne scar on my face I just couldn't stop picking at (you know how it is), and I picked some of this up at the drugstore and it healed my forehead up in a matter of days. It absorbs quickly and just feels nice to put on, so I'm tempted to use it pretty much everywhere! The design of the bottle is really cute and convenient, too.

    Promising review: "I have eczema and I'm constantly trying to find basic skincare than I can use regularly. I have some really bad mosquito bite scars from last summer and some issues with hyperpigmentation, not to mention scarring from eczema outbreaks throughout the years. I saw this reviewed online and decided to give it a try, even though every other product they recommended for skincare was a bust for me. Not this! It smelled like it was going to be too strong and the consistency felt like it was just going to sit on my skin, so I was shocked when my skin drank it in and I had no irritation at all. Even better, after about two months I started noticing some fading and my skin texture felt better. Now it's been about four months and I'm a believer. I'm still on my first bottle (it seems like I've needed to use less over time or something), but I'm considering sizing up with my next purchase, just so I can drench myself in it daily...I'm only kind of exaggerating. It's actually gentle enough for my face and I can't even use Cetaphil on my face (I use very gentle face wash and moisturizer). I hope it becomes your new go-to skin treatment too!" —MissMaria82

    Get it from Amazon for $8.92+ (or $8.47+ with the Subscribe & Save option; available in three sizes).

    20. A rather incredible vitamin solution to help even the most pitiful plants grow up big and strong and develop such great roots, they should play on The Tonight Show. It can help with transplant shock, too!

    three photos of a reviewer's plant at week two, three, and four, with new roots

    Promising reviews:  "I have had a scrawny fiddle-leaf fig for about half a year now. No growth whatsoever. After a recent move, I was pretty sure 'Wallace' was doomed as he kept dropping leaves. Poor Wallace. I've only had this magic potion for 10 days, and I've got two new leaves! It is not only surviving but is thriving like never before. Update two months later: Since this review, he's sprouted three more leaves! Holy cow." —Lisa Albert Wallner

    Get it from Amazon for $10.88.

    21. A snaking tool to free your drain of all the hair that's already there. Remember that strong stomach for before and afters I said I had? People, we have found my limit.

    Promising review: "Works so well I might not eat for days. I live in an apartment complex and the maintenance people are pretty strict about not using drain cleaning chemicals but rather calling them to unclog a slow-draining bathtub or sink. However, I have pretty long hair and I'm certain that the maintenance people don't get paid well enough to go up against the horror that's been building up in my bathtub drain over the past several years. When I got the Vastar snake drain cleaner I went straight to work. No instructions needed, the concept is pretty simple: You grasp the tool with the end that's a handle, push the pointy end down the drain, and the jagged part catches on the nest of hair that's swirled its way around your plumbing. I didn't even get the thing 3 inches down before it was getting stuck on clumps of hair and built-up gunk. I gagged my way through getting all nausea-inducing blockage lurking in my bathtub's drainpipe. It's now clear to me why this is a three-pack...there was simply no way I was going to be cleaning off the plastic tool and reusing it. Very happy with this product, glad it comes in a pack." —K.

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in two lengths).

    22. Amazingly affordable (I'm talking under $3) Scotch Brite stainless steel scrubbers that'll basically pay for themselves with one very impressive use.

    The pan restored to spotless, shiny silver

    The reviewer above got those amazing results by using one of these in combination with Bar Keepers Friend!

    Promising review: "I like to use a lot of cast-iron and stainless-steel pans. But you know what's the worst? Burnt-on oil. I bought these on Amazon because they were both cheap and well reviewed. I expected these to be tough on my hands. They weren't. I expected them to fall apart pretty quickly. They didn't. I expected to have to use a lot of scrubbing force. I don't. What did they do? They removed the burnt-on oil on my stainless steel pans and cast iron pans with a refreshing ease. You apply a little pressure and move it around, and the grease disappears. These are cheap enough not to even give another thought to. Just put them in your cart and get them." —DM

    23. Microfiber makeup remover cloths capable of swiping off even the toughest products with just WATER (yup, you read that right).

    As if that wasn't easy enough, these are also machine washable so you can use them again and again!

    Promising review: "I was skeptical of these, but now I'm pretty sure they're what Mulan's outfit was made of when she wiped her makeup off on her sleeve in the movie. Even totally dry, they do a pretty impressive job of taking off all my makeup (including waterproof eyeliner and mascara) in a couple swipes. I like to use a little micellar water to make my skin feel a little cleaner. It's nice not to burn through so many cotton pads." —RachelM

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $6.79 (or $6.11 with the Subscribe & Save option).

    24. CND SolarOil, a low-key magical oil here to banish brittle nails and dry cuticles for good. Nailed it!,

    Promising review: "I had a problem with my cuticles getting so dry that they would split sometimes, and no matter how many times I put lotion on my hands they would never get moist enough to lay flat like they’re supposed to. My nails were dry and brittle, so I’d end up with one breaking and then have to cut them all back in order to have them the same length. This oil has ended all of that. Now I have to cut them back because they seem to be growing faster. I haven’t had a nail split since the day I started using this oil. It soaks into your cuticles and nails so well. I was really good at using it every day in the beginning, but in the last week I got busy and and only used it twice so I ended up with a split cuticle. That’ll help you remember, right?!?! I got back on track these last two days and the cuticle is healed already. That’s just how moisturizing this stuff is. I highly recommend it!" —mlasorensen

    Get it from Amazon for $8.50.

    25. A long-sleeved T-shirt dress that seems basic, but is there anything basic about a flirty asymmetric hem and over 7,500 positive reviews? Didn't think so. Also, this reviewer demonstration of how many ways you can style it and how it looks great dressed up or down? *Chef's kiss*.

    Get it from Amazon for $18.39+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 45 colors and prints).

    26. A natural scour paste you can use on all sorts of surfaces and that is probably the stuff gunk and grime's nightmares are made of. It's coming for them!!!!!

    Danielle Healy/BuzzFeed

    It's from a Denver-based Etsy shop specializing in plant-based cleaning products.

    BuzzFeed Shopping writer Danielle Healy had major success with this stuff! She writes: "I recently moved into a new apartment, so lately I've been cleaning A LOT. Shortly after moving in, my partner and I went to store something on the top of the kitchen cabinets only to find them caked in a thick layer of grime. 🤢 After going at it with regular multipurpose cleaner (with little success) we broke out the scour paste as a last-ditch effort and OH BOY did this miracle product deliver (pics above). If it can handle that grossness, it's going to have no problem with day-to-day messes like soap scum and burnt-on food. Plus, it smells delightful and comes in minimal, low-waste packaging!"

    Get it from Humble Suds on Etsy for $14.95.

    27. A reusable watermark remover cloth that also works wonders on heat marks and other little stains on wood surfaces, because we've all forgotten to use a coaster or put a hot plate on our table without thinking. Turns out those stains aren't a lost cause after all.,

    Promising review: "OMG amazing. Can't believe it! Amazing. After two seconds I was ready to throw it out. Then I continued. Maybe one to two minutes, sometimes four to five minutes per water stain on my desk (it's been manhandled the last 15 years) and voilà. It was unbelievable. This not only saved me from daily aggravation looking at a worn-out desk, but potentially throwing the desk out or eBaying it." —AN

    Get it from Amazon for $10.52.

    28. A tub of The Pink Stuff, aka an all-purpose paste you can use to scrub anything from cookware to cooktops and bathroom fixtures to rubber shoes shiny clean and free of stains. Just ~pink~ of all the icky things in your home you can finally clean with this stuff!

    Promising review: "Oh my gosh — this stuff is a life changer! Used it to get my fiberglass shower totally clean. Nothing else would get it done and this stuff brought my shower back to near-new in one use. We’ve since cleaned a weird chalky film off our garage door, removed wall markings, and cleaned my storm door. We’ll never be without a jar (or three) of this stuff. Worth every penny." —Nancy F.

    29. Oh Yuk jetted tub cleaner that will clean your jets in just 15 minutes and is named for exactly what you'll say when you see all the gunk that was hiding in them. And knowing that ick is there is *not* something you can live with.,

    It's from a family-owned, Minnesota-based company!

    Promising review: "Oh my gosh! You think your tub is clean and then you see what comes out with this! I followed the directions (fill tub over jets, pour in cleaner, turn on jets). Almost immediately, disgusting residue shot out. And then most came out as the chemical had time to circulate. So glad I got this cleaner instead of sitting in filth, especially because we just bought a new house and I thought, 'Maybe I should try to find out if there is a special cleaner for these tubs.' Glad I did and can know my tub is cleaned out." —Aaron Johnson

    Check out BuzzFeed's full write-up on this spray.

    Promising review: "It WORKS!! Since my husband and I moved into our home two years ago, the hard-water stains in our shower drove me bananas! I tried everything from bleach to all-natural remedies. Nothing worked. Stumbled upon some before and after photos for this product and had to try. Especially for the price! The photos I posted were with minimal scrubbing. The product does all the hard work!!" —Julie Dufour

    31. A 20-pack of multi-surface eraser sponges that may not be the name brand, but do not mess around when it comes to messes. Like in the pics below, I imagine the sponge saying (if sponges could talk, that is) "Ha! You call yourself PERMANENT marker? We'll see about that."

    Promising review: "Overall, I am VERY IMPRESSED. For me, these hold up better than a Mr. Clean magic eraser. They got stains out of my kitchen counter tops, out of my bathroom sink, and even cleaned the shower so well it looked like I had bleached the whole thing! Very happy and will continue to buy in the future. I've even given some to my family to convince them how great they are." —SierraH
