    30 Things With Satisfying Before-And-After Photos

    Proof of beauty, cleaning, and kitchen products (and more) getting some dang results right this way.

    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 β€” prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A headlight lens restoration kit to make your headlights look so shiny and new, other drivers may pull over just to take a moment and say "Wow." Maybe even in an Owen Wilson voice if you're lucky.

    Above, a very cloudy headlight and the text "Before." Below, the same headlight looking super clear with the text "After." The reviewer has used blue masking tape around the edges of the headlight as they worked
    amazon.com

    It's got over 6,000 positive reviews!!! The kit comes with six sanding disk pads and a holder to attach them to a drill, four finishing disks, a refining disk, and rubbing compound.

    Promising review: "You'll need to supply an electric drill, a water source, a low stool to sit on, towels, and some good masking tape. Worked better than expected. After replacing one headlight assembly on a 16 year old Audi, we used this to restore the other side, a huge 18" wrap-around unit in very bad shape. Had to use more than half of the supplied discs. There were no supplies worth saving after we finished. One side took about an hour from set up through clean up. This kit should be plenty for two full headlights. When it was done, from 10 feet away, it was hard to tell 16 years old from new. Any remaining imperfections were along the edge (because I wasn't about to remove the entire headlight unit) or on the inside of the lens. It's a breeze if you do a thorough job with masking tape and keep the disc spinning and moving. It's really easy if you can follow the included written directions." β€”Nothin' Fancy

    2. Possibly magical pimple patches that'll make zits do a vanishing act, and allow you to see the oh-so-satisfying amount of gunk they've pulled from your pores. No wonder they've got over 2,900 positive reviews!

    amazon.com

    These are my personal fave brand of pimple patch (having tried several), because of how they feel, how they stay on, and how well they work. I was literally just about to go put one on! Check out my full review of Nexcare acne patches.

    Promising review: "Okay, what is this sorcery?? I can't believe I never knew these existed. I seriously felt like a teenager again last weekend. Literally days after talking about how great my skin has been, this giant, painful, bulging zit was starting to form right in the middle of my chin. A week before my cousin's wedding, naturally. It was like it wouldn't stop growing, and spot treatment solution was doing absolutely nothing. It hurt so bad, and I couldn't help trying to pop it, but it refused. Then I heard about these. I placed one on my chin the second they arrived in the mail. After a few hours, I saw the white forming and I was curious and peeled it off. Then I put a fresh one on before bed, and come the next morning...HOLY COW, the entire dot of the patch was now a giant white blob. This zit was no joke. It's amazing how much fluid/pus had to get sucked out. Like I said, this is some magic. The zit completely went away within a day." β€”Heather R. Weather

    3. Miracle-Gro indoor plant food spikes, which might be the closest you'll get to the green thumb you've always wished you had. Just stick these guys into your plant pot every few weeks so you can keep your foliage friends alive and perky β€” or even revive a plant you thought was long gone.

    amazon.com

    Each spike can be used for 30-60 days, depending on the season. The reviewer pics above are all of the same plant β€” 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! You can also check out my full write-up on these plant food sticks.

    Promising review: "I always kill my plants but I decided to try again. I just bought five houseplants, and three of them were marked down because they were looking pretty puny. Since I tend to kill them anyway, I figured I would give them a try and save some money. I put one of these spikes in each plant and they all looked so much healthier and happier after just a couple days. I also added one spike to the only houseplant that I've had for years without killing (I was beginning to think it was artificial) the leaves looked healthier almost immediately. I'm very happy with this product and it was a great price." β€”victoria

    4. Pumie Toilet Bowl Ring Remover, a pumice stone with a handy handle sure to produce results that'll bowl you over.

    On the left, a thoroughly rust-stained toilet, and on the right, the toilet with about 80% of the stains gone
    amazon.com

    It's great for hard water marks in the tub, too!

    Promising review: "We rented a home and the toilets were disgusting. The picture above is after just five minutes with the stone. I had tried bleach, every toilet bowl cleaner available, and countless hours of scrubbing to no avail, but this stone worked instantly! I will be buying several more! The stone does dissolve when scrubbing so you need a couple. I was able to completely do almost two toilets that looked awful with one stone!" β€”CristaCross

    Get it from Amazon for $10.98.

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

    On the left, a reviewer wearing lipstick, eyeshadow,and mascara. On the left, the same reviewer with their makeup almost completely gone
    amazon.com

    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." β€”RachelM

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $4.49.

    6. A giant foot file that'll make even the crustiest tootsies smooth β€” and that's no small feet.

    amazon.com

    This miracle worker has got over 3,700 positive reviews!

    Promising review: "This thing is pretty amazing. I was skeptical for sure, since I've tried all kinds of lotions, balms, and stone-based products, none of which helped my heels whatsoever. I've worn socks to bed for years, because if I don't the sheets hardly last a week before they have holes rubbed through them. My wife ordered this thing that looks like a mini cheese grater, lol, and after two minutes β€” two minutes!! β€” of rubbing it on my heel, it's a complete 180. I never would've believed it until I tried it myself. This is well worth double what it costs." β€”LBK

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    7. Natural, cleansing, and odor-eliminating Bottle Bright tablets to make one of your least favorite chores β€” cleaning out your gross water bottle β€” unbelievably easy.

    amazon.com

    I KNOW I'm not the only one who puts off this important chore as long as possible because I always use the wrong amount of dish soap and then it takes forever to rinse it out and even THEN my bottle winds up tasting like soap...you know what I'm talking about. All you have to do with Bottle Bright is fill your bottle with warm water, drop a single tablet in, and let it fizz the gunk away. The tablet dissolves completely, so once you dump out the water, you can use your bottle again right away! Check out BuzzFeed's full write-up on Bottle Bright.

    Promising review: "Can I give Bottle Bright 10 stars? This is a MIRACLE product. I saw it on Shark Tank last week and was really surprised that Lori was the only one that made them an offer (the other Sharks must not use Contigo travel mugs). I immediately ordered it to try and save my Contigo mug that I thought was too far gone. One 10 minute go-round with this product in warm water cleaned the dark brown layer of crud off the bottom of the mug, revealing perfect, shiny, good-as-new stainless steel underneath! I'd tried everything to get that off, but the shape of the bottle made it nearly impossible to scrub. With this product, it rinsed right off like it was nothing. I decided to try one more tablet with hot water and leave it overnight to get the stains off the sides of the bottle. This morning when I rinsed it out, I was absolutely blown away by how perfect it looks. I almost didn't want to put more coffee in it! Also, as the product was sitting and doing its thing in the water, there was no odor whatsoever, and there is absolutely no residual taste. I don't know how they did it, but this incredible product is a MUST-HAVE if you have a mug that you find impossible to clean!" β€”Erica C.

    8. Briogeo Scalp Revival Charcoal and Coconut Oil Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo, because your dry, flaky scalp is craving the same exfoliating scrub treatment you give your face.

    amazon.com

    The pics above are with just ONE wash!!! This stuff is cruelty-free and made with tea tree, coconut, and peppermint oils. Plus it's from a Black woman-owned brand! πŸ™Œ

    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." β€”Jana

    Get it from Amazon for $42.

    9. Game-changing Rubbermaid Freshworks containers, which'll help your produce look and taste its berry best for wayyyyyyy longer.

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    Okay, so technically these are less "before and after" photos and more "with and without" photos. The pics above are my coworker's strawberries after 10 days (!!!), with the one on the left kept in the store container and the one on the right kept in one of these dishwasher-safe, BPA-free wonders. Check out BuzzFeed's full review here.

    Promising review: "I wish I'd gotten these sooner. I bought strawberries for my children, and then I forgot about them. I found them in the back of the refrigerator almost TWO WEEKS later, and they were still good. They keep blackberries for a really long time. Lettuce (washed and cut up, even) has lasted close to three weeks. The real miracle is how long it keeps zucchini. Zucchini starts to get mushy in the crisper drawer after just a few days. Again, these miracle containers have kept it fresh for close to two weeks now. I've kept cut cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, cucumbers, sliced bell peppers, cut jicama, and carrots in these containers. I've had fantastic results with all of them. I love these so much, I ordered a second set. If I had more room in my fridge, I'd get more!" β€”Laura

    Get it from Amazon for $16.22+ (available in four sizes). Find more sizes and buying options here.

    10. Howard Feed-N-Wax Wood Polish and Conditioner, a beeswax and orange oil formula that's basically like a spa treatment for your wood surfaces. In addition to polishing, it adds a protective layer and helps prevent the wood from drying out or fading.

    amazon.com

    Check out BuzzFeed's full write-up on this wood polish!

    Promising review: "Amazing product! We recently moved into a house where the floors hadn't been taken care of for years. We aren't able to do a full refinish of the floors at this time (hopefully within the next year) so we wanted to do something to make them look better. This product lived up to its claims. I can't speak to how long it lasts before needing to be redone, but the difference is night and day." β€”Cameron

    Get it from Amazon for $14.29.

    11. The Tubshroom, a simple-yet-genius device to catch all those nasty loose hairs and keep them from clogging your drain. Skeptical? What if I told you this thing has 15,000+ FIVE-STAR REVIEWS?!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "AMAZING! This is a must-have for families with long hair! I used to have to use chemicals to unclog our shower drain once a month, as the amount of hair coming from me and my teenage daughters made it so that the shower would clog up and we'd have three to four inches of standing water. It was a real pain in the butt, a constant added expense, and made the tub constantly feel and look dirty. I bought this hoping it would catch the hair and stop the drain from clogging. This tiny little device is a true miracle!!! We've been using it for almost three months now and I have yet to need to use chemicals to declog the pipes. We have ZERO clogs!!" β€”SB6907

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

    12. A super affordable rust stain remover that'll banish even the most impossible stains with zero scrubbing. Because, sing it with me, "I don't want no scrubbing!"

    amazon.com

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

    Promising review: "Everyone needs this product! I don't write reviews, but I do read them before I buy anything. I just had to write one for this product. Seeing is believing. These are before and after pictures of our bathtub. It was gross and orange rust-stained. Not even Mr. Clean Magic Erasers touched the stains. 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. The majority of the rust was gone β€” the only thing left was soap scum and that easily wiped away. I'll be buying this stuff again!" β€”NMP

    Get it from Amazon for $4.97.

    13. Bar Keepers Friend, an all-purpose cleaner that looks seemingly "permanent" stains in the eye and laughs in their faces.

    On the left, BuzzFeed editor Kayla Suazo's stove with one burner very dirty with crusted-on gunk. On the right, her stovetop sparkling clean
    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

    It works on everything from sinks and tubs to stainless steel kitchenware and appliances to cooktops β€” just look at the difference it made on my coworker's stove! Check out her full Bar Keepers Friend review.

    Promising review: "I just moved into a new place with a huge stainless steel sink. I was so excited that I could fit an entire pan in to soak after cooking! I did just that, lifted up my pan to clean it, and found RUST STAINS all over the new sink. I couldn't believe it. I didn't even realize the pan was rusty on the bottom. Nothing would get the rust out β€” like, hi, I thought this sink was supposed to be stainless? I tried baking soda, white vinegar, lemon juice, anything I already had in the kitchen, as well as some heavy-duty cleaners. The stain lifted a teeny bit from the baking soda with a lot of elbow grease, but not enough to make a difference. After a few weeks, the stains hadn't moved from normal use and scrubbing. I was devastated. I decided to buy this as a last-ditch effort. I wish I'd just bought it immediately but I didn't think it would really help that much. I am so happy to be wrong! I literally put it on the sponge and scrubbed a little and every stain was instantly removed! I can't believe it. It took less than a minute, even though I spent ages trying to scrub it out before. My sink is perfect again!" β€”Customer

    Get the liquid formula and a two scrubbing cloths from Amazon for $17.99.

    14. An ingenious hot air brush that is 50% brush, 50% blowdryer, and will get your hair 100% awesome.

    One the left, A reviewer with frizzy, wavy hair. On the right, the same reviewer's hair looking sleek, smooth, and blown-out
    amazon.com

    It's got two heat settings and over 5,000 positive reviews, and also claims to reduce frizz and boost shine! Check out one BuzzFeeder's full review of this brush.

    Promising review: "Let's face it. It's near impossible to get a salon blowout look at home. Your arms get tired, and trying to manage a brush and blowdryer is a feat in and of itself. This brush is not just good, it's great! I love this brush! I actually like the way my hair turns out with this styler better than what I get at the salon β€” seriously. I love my hairdresser and she does a great job, but I have actually gotten more compliments on my hair when I do it myself with this tool. I'll probably get two more to give to my daughters as well, that's how much I love it. This is great and you can't beat the price!!" β€”debbie

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in two sizes).

    15. A Cerama Bryte cooktop cleaning kit, which has everything you need to ensure that those stains on your smooth-top range will be ~cooked~.

    amazon.com

    It comes with a bottle of cleaner, a scraper, and a cleaning pad.

    Promising review: "If you have a glass stovetop, do yourself a favor and purchase this. It took me about 10 minutes to clean the stovetop and it looks so much better now. I thought we would never find anything to get it looking like new and get the scratches off!" β€”Nicole

    Get it from Amazon for $11.48.

    16. A bitter-tasting nail polish that'll help you kick even the most stubborn nail-biting habit. Wait, you mean I might actually let my nails get long enough to file? Am I dreaming?

    amazon.com

    Over 5,600 reviewers swear by it!

    Promising review: "I'm 30 years old and I have bitten my nails for as long as I can remember. And I'm not talking about a little nibble here and there, I'm talking about biting them until they were bleeding or it was too painful to continue, then I would move onto the next finger. When I was out of fingers I would move on to my cuticles. I had tried everything imaginable to stop the habit. I would never last more than a couple days without starting up again. I figured if anything had a chance at working it would be this product. This product is advertised as having a bad taste to curb your desire to bit your nails, so I painted it onto a finger, let it dry for a couple minutes, and then took a lick. At first didn't taste like anything, but then the taste hit me! It's one of the worst tastes I have ever come across and it lingered for a good five minutes or more! I'm not saying I'm cured yet, but I went from being a highly addicted nail biter to having not bitten my nails or cuticles in the past two weeks. I have almost zero urge to do so. Both my nails and cuticles are growing out and have actually required trimming and shaping. Now I catch myself lifting a finger to my mouth and thinking, 'if I bite that nail I'm going to taste that nasty stuff,' and I quickly put my hand back down!" β€”ChrisB.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.50.

    17. The Lip Bar's Skin Serum Foundation, which has so many amazing attributes that'll probably make it the best foundation you've ever tried. It's made with hyaluronic acid so it's like a serum and foundation in one, it's cruelty-free and vegan, and it comes in so many shades that you're sure to find your perfect match.

    A model before: not wearing any makeup and after: with the foundation, which evens out their skin tone and makes them look glow-y
    The Lip Bar

    I also can't get over the super easy built-in brush pen design of the packaging itself β€” you just click the top to dispense product onto the brush part! The brand itself is awesome too. It's a Black woman-owned business that focuses on inclusivity, and they were actually turned down by Shark Tank! Your loss, sharks!!!

    Promising review: "I’m very impressed. As someone who knows nothing about makeup, I found this super easy to apply. I used the shade matcher on the site and it matches me PERFECTLY. I can hardly tell I’m wearing makeup. Plus I wore it on a super hot day where I was sweating a bunch and my face was unbothered. By the time I made it home that evening it was still looking good!" β€”Shaquilla B.

    Get it from The Lip Bar for $28 (available in 26 shades).

    18. A clever grout-coating pen to make it look like you spent tons of time and money cleaning up your tile.

    amazon.com

    The pics above are with just one coat of this stuff!

    Promising review: "I bought this to clean up the pitted and cracked shower grout in an apartment. If I owned the place, I'd have it properly re-grouted and sealed. But for the price, this did the trick and made the shower look sharp and clean. The paint dispenses easily and is pretty simple to apply evenly (and if you screw up, just use a sponge to wipe off where you colored outside the lines). No idea how it'll hold up over time, but it made it through its first cleaning test (a spray down with Kaboom tile cleaner). For my situation, it worked." β€”Beez

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in two sizes and three colors).

    19. A super effective and hygienic toilet cleaning wand with removable antibacterial, deodorizing heads for the cleanest latrine you've ever seen.

    On the left, a toilet bowl super stained with brown gunk. On the right, the same toilet almost entirely white
    amazon.com

    Pssst...in case you're wondering how the toilet above got so gross to begin with, the reviewer says it's used by their cats!

    The kit comes with a wand, six refill heads loaded with Clorox, and a storage caddy. The wand has a handy switch that'll let you drop the used head right in the trash so you don't have to touch any nastiness. Plus, the sponge is specially shaped to get into nooks and crannies under the rim, and it can also help remove calcium stains and rust! Check out BuzzFeed's full write-up on these wands.

    Promising review: "When I moved into my current apartment, I inherited a toilet brush that had probably been used by the previous six tenants. It was nasty and disgusting. I'd had these toilet wands before, but I'd left them at my old apartment, so I knew I needed a replacement. These are so easy to use. You snap the sponge head onto the wand, clean your toilet, and unlock the used sponge head over the trash can. The sponge doesn't sit in its own filth waiting for the next time you use it. The handle sits in its own nook in the bin. I love it! I clean my toilet once a week and I like the how simple this system is." β€”Lauren Roland

    Get it from Amazon for $17.76+.

    20. Collapsible drawer organizers sure to make your mom so, so proud of your newfound tidiness.

    On top, a cluttered underwear and sock drawer with the text "before." Below, the drawer organized with the tan fabric organizers, with everything neatly in pockets and the text "after"
    amazon.com

    The set includes a six-cell bin, a seven-cell bin long enough to fit bras, an eight-cell bin, and a 24-cell bin.

    Promising review: "No matter what else is going on in my life, at least my underwear drawer gives me the (false) sense that I have it all figured out. This organizer was just what I was looking for. I only use unpadded bras, so I didn't have an issue fitting several in one slot. The material is malleable, which makes it much easier to get in and out of my drawer, and it's also very easy to clean. I've been using it for five months now and haven't had an issue with wear at all." β€”NAD

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $13.87+ (available in six colors).

    21. A multi-surface pet stain and odor eliminator that over 8,000 people (and presumably their mess-making furry friends) swear by.

    amazon.com

    You can use it on floors, clothes, carpets, furniture, and pretty much anything else.

    Check out BuzzFeed's full write-up on Rocco & Roxie stain remover.

    Promising review: "This is magic! These pics were taken over the course of about 35 minutes. These are year old stains! I’m sold." β€”Joshua Hurston Hall

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    22. Wreck This Journal, a notebook with a different creative (or destructive) prompt on each page. If it looks like it's been to hell and back when you're done with it, you've done it right β€” because it's 2020 and we could all use some major catharsis.

    On the left, the new journal. On the right, the journal all beat up, with a hole drilled in it and adhesive bandages stuck on it
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This book has exceeded all my expectations so far. I suffer from very bad anxiety and depression and have been using this book as an outlet and somewhat of a therapy tool. The pages all have different assignments or tasks on them that push you out of your comfort zone and create a wonderful feeling of freedom when they're done. Page one said 'crack the spine' which I had a very hard time with, but with each speed bump of ripping out pages, folding, cutting, crinkling, messing, glueing, and sticking, I felt more and more free. I love this book that much more every time. Some prompts, like 'color outside the lines,' are very easy, while others push you to be weird like 'collect dead bugs.' It definitely forces you to think outside the box! I highly recommend this book to anyone who needs a creative outlet or just wants to have a good bit of fun!" β€”Aly McMuffin

    Get it from Amazon for $12.

    23. A Bevel safety razor that can give a super-close, bump-free shave on anything from your face to your body to your head, but is specially designed to be extra great for thick, curly hair.

    amazon.com

    Bevel is a Black-founded business! Though it's now owned by P&G, the founder remains the CEO.

    Promising review: "As an African-American man, I've always been more susceptible to razor bumps and ingrown hairs due to curlier hair. Gillette was my go-to for shaving, because it did better with sensitive skin and was good for shaving quickly. However, of course Gillette is more of a one-size-fits-all razor brand and doesn't account for some of the nuances some men have to deal with when shaving. I looked for a razor blade that would assist in minimizing razor bumps and ingrown hairs, and that's where Bevel comes in. Firstly, I'm very happy to support a brand that addresses some of the unique grooming issues of Black men, so cheers to that! Secondly, because I was switching from a Gillette razor, there was a bit of a learning curve in terms of shaving technique and how long the shaving process took. I definitely cut up my chin and jawline the first few times using this razor. However, as I continued to use it more and adjusted to the various holding angles for the different parts of my face, the shave got much easier and the results are noticeable (after about 8 months of use). The shave is much closer, so my face is much smoother. Initially when using this razor, I did get a couple of razor bumps, but now that I'm accustomed, I get none! The shave lasts about two days longer than when I use a Gillette razor, and the razor and blades are very finely weighted and crafted, so once you understand the different angles you can maneuver around your face with ease." β€”Shawn

    24. BiorΓ© Deep Cleansing Pore Strips, because no list of satisfying products could be complete without these babies. Name a better feeling than peeling one of these off and seeing all the grime you got out of your pores, I'll wait.

    amazon.com

    Check out BuzzFeed's full write-up on BiorΓ© pore strips!

    Promising review: "These BiorΓ© strips are great. I had used them years ago, but hadn't seen them in my local drug store for a while so I searched on Amazon and was really happy to find them. I have dry skin and don't get acne, but I do get blackheads on my nose. I don't wear much makeup, so before using these, I just wash my face and pat dry. I then make sure my nose is wet so the strip will stick to it. I included some before and after pictures. This isn't a miracle product that will eliminate all your blackheads, but as you can see from the strip, it gets a lot of sebum and dead cells "plugs" out of your face. I don't know if I really look any better, but I sure feel better after using these! I finish by rinsing my face and then using a toner to help close the pores." β€”SunnyGirl70

    Get a box of 24 (12 nose strips and 12 flat strips to use elsewhere on your face) from Amazon for $13.70.

    25. Squishface Wrinkle Paste, an anti-itch, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal cream made for cleaning the cute faces (and tail pockets) of the wrinkliest doggos around. It's great for tear stains, too!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Since there were multiple great before-and-after photos, I obviously couldn't pass up the opportunity to show you TWO good boy glow-ups.

    Promising review: "This stuff works so well!!! My English Bulldog's face wrinkles were red, wet, smelly, oozy, and irritated. He was constantly trying to scratch his face. After TWO applications, the redness is gone! The smell is gone! And it’s dry and overall it’s looking so much better! The usual daily buildup of gunk is gone! Thank you so much for a great product that works!" β€”jason

    26. A hydrating argan oil hair mask that over 5,000 reviewers think is more magical than Sleekeazy's Hair Potion.*

    *Well, those aren't their exact words, considering not everyone can be that massive of a Harry Potter nerd. But you get the idea.

    Promising review: "My hair is very thin and curly. The ends are damaged from heat and color, causing my hair to look even more unruly. I do oil treatments once a week and only wash my hair two or three times a week, but NOTHING has made my hair feel like this product does. There is an immediate difference as soon as this product touches my hair. It leaves it feeling so silky, even after I rinse it out and dry my hair.

    Promising review: "Don't get me wrong β€” my wedding ring was gorgeous before. It did sparkle and still made me smile every day. However, after using this, oh my goodness! After one use, my ring is absolutely breathtaking! I knew my ring got dirty now and then, simply from sweating and being outside in the elements. However, I never realized just how much schmutz marred my beautiful diamond until I cleaned it. It literally took my breath away with its fiery, dazzling brilliance! My wedding ring is something that always makes my heart beat a little faster β€” because of its beauty and what it represents β€”Β and now, my smile is even wider and my heart skips a beat a little more as I gaze upon this amazing clarity. This product is an amazing value with mind-blowing, beautiful results!" β€”liltreeclimber

    Promising review: "I found this product through a BuzzFeed article for people with frizzy hair and IT DID NOT DISAPPOINT, PEOPLE! I put this serum through the wringer; I got this to stand up to Bay Area fog AND the nasty, humid heat wave we got a couple weeks ago. No frizz, no extra curls. Nothing! On top of that, it made my hair super glossy. I'm very impressed. Heads up though, a little goes a long way. One pump is enough to cover my hair and I have medium-length hair. It can make your hair look oily if you use too much. I do have oily hair, so working on my ends first then moving up to my roots works for me." β€”Amazon Customer

    Promising review: "This stuff is incredible!!! I don't usually leave reviews, but this chemical exfoliator does exactly what it claims and has really helped, especially with the texture of my skin. I've noticed a difference within a week of daily use, as it's gentle yet effective and hasn't dried out my skin. It's helped fade acne scars and the fragrance of the product is mild but pleasant. EVERYONE AND THEIR GRANDMAS NEED THIS!!!!" β€”R
