    31 Products For People With Lots Of Little Problems But Very Little Patience

    99 problems and impatience is definitely one of them — but not anymore with these fast-acting products.

    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. 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.

    2. A roll-on headache and migraine relief stick, which I haven't stopped recommending and buying since I first tried — and I don't plan on stopping any time soon. It's perfect for people who get frequent headaches and don't want to wait for their medicine to kick in before they get some dang relief.

    Katy Herman/BuzzFeed, Yi Yang/BuzzFeed

    I started using this magical product (which is made with peppermint, spearmint, and lavender essential oils) a few years ago and since then have told approximately 1,089,642 people about it. I keep one in my purse and one on my dresser, and I reorder before I'm actually close to running out — I would be lost without it. While it won't kill a major migraine on its own, it feels super soothing and cooling. If I end up taking ibuprofen for my headache, this is really nice to use while it kicks in. Also, if I just have a slight headache or just the beginnings of one, a few swipes of this (lightly on my temples and forehead and as heavily as I want on my neck) can actually knock it out or delay it getting worse. It's so great to help me get through my busy workdays and social activities, and I really wish I'd had it during high school and college to help me get through the day then! Read my full review here. And psst...they've recently updated the product to have a metal roller-ball applicator, which feels oh so cooling and soothing when you apply. Swoon.

    Promising review: "Does exactly as promised. Cools the head and neck and provides almost instant relief of headaches. I'm on a daily migraine medication, but this has helped me to not use my rescue medication as often. It even helps me with my sinus pressure headaches. It's completely worth the $11 and can easily be kept with you as it's small and compact. You really can't go wrong!" —Amber J.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    3. A game-changing pair of no-tie shoelaces you can use to turn any pair of shoes into comfy, perfect-fitting slip-ons and banish gross, hazardous dangling shoelaces forever. It's worth the time installing them for you to be able to take approximately 0 seconds sliding into your fave shoes for the rest of time.


    Some reviewers even recommend using them in place of drawstrings on pants!

    Promising review: "These lace locks are badass and a genius invention! I should've gotten a pair of these eons ago! There are even YouTube tutorials on how to install these (haha). Some boot/hiking laces are waaay too long and these Lock Laces resolve that issue. Worth the time and money and they come in a variety of colors. Can't go wrong with these!" —A. C. Lunn

    Get them from Amazon for $8.99 (available in 13 colors).

    4. A genuinely genius butter spreader knife with little holes to help you get spreadable butter from even the hardest sticks, because you're never more impatient than when you're hungry, and hanger and impossible-to-spread butter and broken toast really do not mix well.

    The serrated side also works well as a cheese knife!

    Promising review: "Perfect spreader for refrigerated butter. No more torn bread and no waiting for butter to soften. Great purchase. Well-made stainless spreader knife." —Apple

    Get it from Amazon for $10.89.

    5. Or, if you don't even want to have to slice the butter *at all*, a butter dish and grip set that lets you just pop the stick straight onto the grip and spread away for hassle-free pan-greasing and toast-buttering.

    It's dishwasher safe and from a Miami-based small business!

    Promising review: "Absolutely perfect. It holds a whole stick of butter and the butter stays in place — unlike some of the other products on the market that are supposed to serve the same purpose." —Michelle

    Get it from TheMagnetack on Etsy for $11.95.

    6. Double shower hooks that'll allow you to swap out just your curtain or just your liner without having to basically dismantle your whole shower setup every time. Because even the most patient people barely have the patience for that struggle.


    Because yes, changing your shower curtain liner before these WAS a Hitchcock-level nightmare, thank you very much! BuzzFeed Shopping editor Elizabeth Lilly has and loves these. Check out her full shower hook review (#3).

    Promising review: "Where have these hooks been all my life?! They make removing the shower curtain liner for washing SO much easier. The quality is great, and they actually glide across the bar." —CASEINPOINT

    Get a set of 12 from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in four colors).

    7. An easy wood-repairing marker and wax stick set so you can fill in and cover those scratches you've been meaning to do something about for ages in mere *minutes*.

    One reviewer even said it was perfect for filling in worn shoe soles!

    Promising review: "For $10 you can cover up so many scratches that you couldn't buy a house big enough to run out of ink. I've had this for just four hours, but I fixed a table that was scratched when I moved it, kitchen cabinets, chairs, a wine rack, and some hardwood flooring. It does a good job at covering the scratches to a point where you have to stare at a spot to notice it, but don't expect it to make your furniture to look brand new again. But for $10 you can make your furniture look reasonable! Would highly recommend to anyone who has pets who scratch the !@#$ out of their wood furniture." —Phaedrus

    Get six markers, six wax sticks, and a sharpener from Amazon for $9.99.

    8. A fashionable and functional microfiber Kitsch hair towel that'll help you cut down on drying time, even if your hair is super long and thick and usually takes a small eternity to dry. Plus, being able to toss your strands in this and multitask while all that moisture is absorbed? An impatient person's dream.

    It's from a woman-owned business, and BuzzFeed Shopping editor Kayla Boyd has one and loves it!

    Promising review: "I usually don’t take the time to rate any of the items I purchase on Amazon, but I love this hair towel! It really holds your hair in place. I have very long and thick hair so normal hair turbans without the scrunch do nothing for me. This towel holds every inch of my hair with no problem and DOES NOT ride up!!!!! I love it PERIOD and I will be buying another one!!!" —Gia Denise

    Get it from Amazon for $23 (or $20.70 with the Subscribe & Save option; available in seven colors and prints).

    9. A natural shoe deodorizing spray made with lemongrass, mint, and tea tree essential oils that over 4,000 positive reviewers say can save even those shoes so stinky, you'd considered banishing them to a deep circle of Hell. Yup, even after just one use.


    Promising review: "Even with the great reviews, I was convinced there was no way this would touch the stink in my son's shoes. These shoes...while headed to town as a family we were struck with the stench, so we turned the car around, drove 10 minutes back to the house, chucked them into the yard, and went to buy new shoes (which also stunk after one wear). He lost the new shoes three days in, just in time for my order to arrive. I was forced to try this with the nasty yard shoes. O. M. G. One soak in this stuff and the smell was GONE! I sniffed hard to find that underlying stink that I was sure was there. Gone. He's been wearing the newly revived demon shoes for a week at summer camp, spraying every day before he puts them on, and the smell is still GONE. Completely! It has a strong herbal/eucalyptus-type smell, but that fades and it smells clean anyway." —Broncodriver

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    10. Wad-Free, an ingenious device to solve all your sheet-washing woes. It'll help your sheets dry faster and with fewer wrinkles, and prevent them from trapping all the clothes you throw in there with them in the dreaded tangled-up ball — making folding laundry faster, too. Where have these been your whole laundry-doing life?!?

    They're reusable, BPA-free, and from a small business that launched during the pandemic.

    Promising review: "This product has changed my world! Washing and drying my sheets is a breeze! The sheets are not bundled up in the washer and they also dry quickly with no wrinkles! Do yourself a huge favor and try WadFree! You will not regret it! Thank you Wad-Free for making m this chore simple and making washing my sheets a fun, easy breezy experience! I love them!!!

    11. A ~sweet~ little clay bear who's more than just a cute face. Add soak him in water for 20 minutes, and he'll quickly soften brown sugar you'd thought had hardened past use.

    This little dude absorbs moisture, so you can also keep him dry and pop him in a bag of chips to help them stay fresh!

    Promising review: "OMG, soft brown sugar! I've heard of the product for years, shame on me for not buying one sooner. They work. Brown sugar in a glass canister, hard as a rock, can't chip it out. Cutie brown sugar bear soaked for 20 minutes (thought my sugar was extra Half an hour later, it's fully soft and usable." —Karsie

    12. Wet & Forget shower spray, which'll seriously cut down the time you spend cleaning your bathroom *and* eliminate even the most stubborn stains. True to its name, all you have to do is spray your shower or tub, let it sit overnight, and rinse it the next morning to reveal a cleaning miracle. It works so well that you only need to use it once a week!

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing! I had a horrible gray ring in the bottom of my shower that was impossible to remove. I had tried the Dawn dish soap method (with a lot of scrubbing) and had even used toilet bowl cleaner to try to remove the soap scum. My next step was to tear out and replace the shower pan and tile. I figured this was my last chance. I ordered the Wet & Forget spray and really coated the shower walls and floor pan and walked away. I CANNOT begin to tell you how happy I was to rinse down the walls sometime later and watch all that crud roll right down the drain!! This is the best product I have ever used in my life!! Works great and no toxic fumes!!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.89.

    13. A winged eyeliner stamp 5,000+ reviewers swear by because it takes getting a perfect cat-eye from time-consuming and near-impossible to quick and easy. Because not everyone was born with beauty YouTuber-level skills, and that is very much okay.,

    Each order comes with two double-sided pens (one for the left eye and one for the right). One end features the wing stamp for the corner of your eye, while the other is a regular eyeliner pen to finish the look on your lids.

    Promising review: "Tried wings over and over again with NO success until I purchased this wing stamper. Best invention ever!!! Stayed on, didn't smudge through humid and 85-degree weather. Went to wash at night and wet my face, and the liner did not budge. Was very easy to wash off with soap and water though. Would buy again!" —Heang

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $14.97 (available in three sizes).

    14. Beyond handy grocery bag handles made for anyone who REFUSES to make multiple trips into the house with their baggage. These babies make it possible to carry way more at once and can even hold the bags together in the back of the car so they don't spill.


    Reviewers note they can also be used with reusable bags, not just plastic, as long as the handle straps aren't too long!

    Promising review: "It usually takes me a dozen trips from my car to my house to get my groceries inside, and if I carry too many at one time, the handles cut off the circulation in my hands and arms. These special handles solved all my problems. Today, I only made three trips from the car to the house! When I had to put the bags down to open the door, these handles laid on top of the bags and I only had to grab them, instead of searching for all the plastic handles as they flopped around. Now there are no more bag marks on my wrist and my hands don't go numb! Who would have thought that something so simple could make my life so much better?" —Rosemary Smith Dattler

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $13.95.

    15. A 4-in-1 hole repair product that is a squeeze bottle of spackle with a built-in primer, plus has a built-in putty knife on the top and a sanding pad on the cap. It'll allow even the least handy people ever (me) to quickly and easily fix damage up well enough to get their security deposit back without even breaking a sweat.


    Promising review: "Absolutely love this product! Completely repairs dings, damages, and holes in drywall (that a landlord would charge $100+ for) in one product. Used it to fix a large wall ding above my bed that was very unattractive. Spackle easily coated and covered the ding. I flattened the spackled surface with the sharp edge on the bottle and allowed to dry overnight. I sanded down the surface with the smoother disk on the cap, and no scrapings or dust spilled at all while sanding — it left a perfectly smooth surface. Painted over it and it's gone!" —Analytical V

    Get it from Amazon for $5.98.

    16. A compact and convenient teeth whitening pen for anyone who's tired of more cumbersome methods or who is prone to sensitivity from strips, but still wants a Chip Skylark-worthy smile faster than you can sing the chorus of "My Shiny Teeth and Me." Well, almost.

    Each pen can be used 15+ times!

    Promising review: "This is one of the best whitening products I've ever used. You can see results after one use. Seriously. My teeth were yellow. I drink wayyy too much coffee and it shows on my teeth. I have tried all kinds of whitening products to combat the yellow. This product is so fast-acting and I love it. Also my teeth are very sensitive and this doesn't cause any sensitivity." —jessica

    17. Miracle-Gro indoor plant food spikes capable of turning the fate of your wilty plant bb around in a matter of days. Just stick these guys into your plant pot every few weeks, and you might actually be able to keep Stemma Thompson alive.

    Each spike can be used for 30–60 days, depending on the season. The reviewer pics above are all of the same plant — the left one shows how this magical stuff helped the rather sad dude perk up in just 10 days, and the right one shows that he's like a whole new plant two months later!

    Promising review: "I absolutely adore this product. When I first got my Coleus plant, I seriously thought it was going to die in less than a week, and I was just searching on Google for like a quick fix, and I came across these plant food sticks. I honestly didn’t think it was going to help, but my plant is amazing now. I just stuck it in the soil and watered it regularly, and two weeks later it was ready to move into a bigger pot. It is growing, it is beautiful, and it is vibrant — every positive word you can think of basically. Thank you so much, Miracle-Gro, for turning me into a green thumb." —Suttonkae

    Get 24 spikes from Amazon for $2.88.

    18. A super helpful strainer bin set for anyone who has v little patience for hand-washing clothes (same). It not only speeds up the process, but also works great for small spaces (it's designed to fit in sinks) and saves you from sticking your hands in the icky water. You don't even need to tip it over to empty it when you're done — the base bucket has a drainage plug!

    The Grommet

    It's from a small business and was invented by a mom who was tired of being grossed out when washing cloth diapers!

    Promising review: "I have a lot of hand-washing tasks that need quick attention. The Strucket provides just the answer, and without a lot of complexity or heavy lifting. An all-in-one tool for soak, wash, and rinse is just what I needed. We have used ours for about a year and don't want to go back to the old technique. Saves time and effort for such a common task." —Michael

    Get a regular bucket and a strainer bucket from The Grommet for $59.95 (available in three colors).

    19. A super-helpful adjustable hanging closet rod to double your available hanging space and make room for all the fall fashion you're undoubtedly going to purchase. Why spend time organizing your closet when you can just pop this baby on and instantly have extra space?

    Promising review: "Works great, easy setup. This product is amazing. My kiddos are going to share a closet and this was the easiest way to get all of their things in there together. It doubled the hanging space and I was able to hang my daughter's things and move my son's items to the bottom hanging addition. How low you want it to hang is adjustable so it could go even lower if you had adult-sized clothing to hang. Would definitely purchase again." —Jeannette Fite

    Get it from Amazon for $14.87+ (available in two colors).

    20. The Squatty Potty, aka the iconic bathroom stool that'll help you assume the right position to pass your stools with ease, so you can be done with your bathroom business and back to regular business in a fraction of your usual time.


    Check out BuzzFeed's full review of the Squatty Potty.

    Promising review: "The worst thing about this contraption is that you gather all of your viewing content (i.e. Kindle, article, Instagram, etc.), prep yourself up, and before you even get past the first paragraph it’s time to get off. I never get that intimate pooing time to myself anymore; you really don’t realize what you have until it’s gone." —Melissa

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    21. Miraculous Folex instant carpet spot remover, which also works on upholstery to make stains do a Houdini-level vanishing act. Plus, it's odor free for scentsitive folks.

    Promising review: "Can I give it 10 stars? I'm really disappointed I lived without this product for so long. However, I have an overpriced wool carpet that my dogs have destroyed with accidents, bully sticks, and just general recklessness. I gave up on this rug ever being clean again. I've had it professionally cleaned and tried a dozen things myself...and no difference. And so I thought I'd try this assuming that it wouldn't work on the stain-determined rug but that'd I use it on my less tenacious ones. I sprayed it on, reading the instructions saying that I didn't need to scrub it, etc. And minutes later, freaking magic. My very pale blue and white rug is virginal. I admit that I did rub it in a little on the harsher stains/discoloration, but there were plenty of areas that didn't require any follow up rubbing. I'm sincerely blown away and just ordered a second bottle. The price of this product is minimal if you're looking to make your rug/carpet like new again so I would absolutely recommend trying it. I don't think I've ever been this impressed with anything I've ever purchased. I feel cheated for not knowing about this sooner." —bubbleslovesoap

    22. 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: "First thing I noticed when I opened the jar was the almost minty smell. It smells really good!! I used about three tablespoons on my shoulder-length hair. Very relaxing massaging this product on my scalp!! Removed any dry skin and flakes I had on my scalp. Rinses quickly and leaves your hair soft and shiny and really cleans your scalp and roots. Will definitely purchase in the future and highly recommend to all my friends!!" —hollyanne44

    23. Impressive silver polishing wipes to get your most prized (and most tarnished) jewelry, silverware, and decor shining like new again in seconds. You might need to wear sunglasses to handle all that sparkle.,

    Promising review: "My engagement ring is silver, and it tarnishes easily. Since I wear it every day, it would get dull and gray very quickly. I was using silver cleaner, but it didn't work very well, and didn't make my ring shiny. These wipes blew that stuff away! Just a few seconds was all it took to make my ring look brand new. I am so happy with these wipes. So easy, and the results are amazing! I even tried one on my white gold wedding band, and it worked on that too." —Bethany Nadeau

    Get them from Amazon for $8.91.

    24. A genius slicing tool that'll allow you to hold tricky foods like cherry tomatoes, shrimp, bread, meat, and bagels steady without putting your fingers in harm's way. It'll also seriously reduce your chopping time when you're prepping a salad!

    hands holding the handle on top of the white device, with cherry tomatoes held between the top and bottom parts so they can all be cut at once

    It's BPA-free and dishwasher safe.

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my life? I love this gadget! It’s so simple. Trust me...if you cut tomatoes in half, just do it!! It’s so easy to use. You do need to pretty much fill it up; you can’t just put three or four tomatoes in. Also, don’t press too hard, just lightly rest your hand on top and use a VERY sharp knife for best results. If your knife is dull this will not work! And if you cut raw chicken breasts in half, buy two, because you can use one for that as well!! Just make sure you label it 'raw chicken' and only use it for that." —Leah

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95 (available in four colors).

    25. A creative and customizable cord- and router-concealing box made from vintage books to hide your annoying eyesore of a router and tangles of wires in the most high-brow and low-effort of ways. No need to spend time untangling or rearranging — just pop this chic cover in front of the cables and pretend they're not there.

    It's from a small business based in Utah!

    Promising review: "I’m pretty sure I’ve never loved a purchase from Amazon as much as I love this one, and I’ve been a Prime member since day one. This product is EXTREMELY well made and very unique. Plus it does the job of hiding the ugly routers and cords. The customer service was great and responsive. I was a little hesitant to spend the money on this, but after years of living with the husband’s pile of technology, the money was well spent!" —AmazonEmme

    27. A battery-powered fabric defuzzer, in case you thought that your old favorite, pill-covered sweater was officially out of commission. You'll be happy to be proved wrong. Not only will this get rid of pills quickly, but its ~fun~ and won't feel like a chore.


    It's got 13,000+ positive reviews! Get the required AA batteries here, and check out our full review of this defuzzer.

    Promising reviews: "I had a cardigan that had a lot of pilling on the back of it, and I was able to remove it in seconds. Literally seconds. It has three adjustable settings, which kind of act similarly to different shave-guards for razors (that's the best way I can think to describe it at the moment). I've only used the shortest setting so far, but it's convenient to know that the other two settings are there if I ever decide to use them. It also has a detachable component that catches all of the shaved fuzzies, which is really easy for cleanup. The handle also makes this thing really easy to use." —Kirsti

    "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. 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 de-pilling everything. Sweatshirts, leggings, blankets, socks, anything that looks like it needs some love. It does the job quickly and leaves everything looking fresh. I’m obsessed. I’ve started asking if my neighbors need anything de-pilled. Everyone needs to own this." —Sydney Jensen

    28. 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 the quick relief you've been looking for.

    A set of four reviewer pictures: The wart turned white, the ward even whiter and starting to rise, the ward starting to separate, and the wart peeling off

    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

    29. A beyond helpful treat dispensing pad if your pupper despises baths above all else. You can just cover it in a spreadable treat like peanut butter and stick to the wall of your tub to trick your dirty doggo into standing still, so baths will be quick and easy and not an all-afternoon struggle sesh.,

    10/10 recommend following up with a SNUGGLE sesh, tho.

    It's dishwasher-safe, and you can even freeze it with the treat on it to make the yumminess last longer.

    Promising review: "Really the best thing for grooming your dog! We use this for the bath, drying, brushing, giving eye drops, etc. Has really changed our experience with grooming our dog who used to hate baths and he's so much happier too! Only thing is to make sure you watch your pup the full time while licking peanut butter or whatever you put on the slow feeder...we left him after grooming to finish up his peanut butter and he bit a piece of the plastic off and ate it. We learned for next time! Highly highly recommend!" —Arielle

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95.

    30. Incredibly impressive water bottle–cleaning tablets that deserve a medal or something, since we all know that getting your trusty beverage container TRULY clean is a nearly impossible feat — especially if you don't want to spend the time on a seemingly endless cycle of scrubbing and rinsing.

    All you have to do is put one tablet and some warm water into your bottle and let it fizz all the ickiness away. The tablet will dissolve completely, so once you rinse it out, your bottle's all set to be used again! That means no more scrubbing and no residual soapy taste.

    Promising review: "I was a bit disgusted at the state of my tea cup once the flash went off on my camera, yikes! I use this cup for my daily tea at work and it's no secret that tea stains. I've purchased new mugs once they become stained, but they aren't cheap, so when I saw a BuzzFeed article about these capsules I was curious if they could actually clean this mess. The before and after pictures prove it right there! I've never reviewed a purchase before but I had to with this one. I let the tablet sit in hot water for eight hours and EVERYTHING poured out. There was a very faint chemical smell, but after washing the mug with dish soap and water it was gone. I highly recommend this product!" —Cassandra Cioffoletti

    31. A Bite Away tool, aka the mosquito bite relief you've been searching for after every outdoor excursion but failed to find in the form of creams or anything else. It's a quick (three to five second) zap that'll save you from days of misery.

    Promising review: "I can’t say enough good about this product. I am severely allergic to mosquito bites (skeeter syndrome) and this is the first product ever that has provided long-lasting relief. Yes, like others described, you do feel a burning sensation. At least in my case, it has not caused any lasting marks. Any discomfort that I feel from the heat is far outweighed by the benefits of not having any itching. When you first apply it, the itching actually increases, but by the time you are done with the treatment, the itching is completely gone. I was so shocked at how effective it is from the first time I used it. I don’t know how I lived without this for so long!" —Gigli
