    34 Things Under $20 That People Actually Swear By

    Some of these awesome are also under $10, and some are even under $5, so your wallet will be as happy with them as you are.

    1. The Cat Dancer, a super-simple wire toy that every cat and owner alike will become paws-itively obsessed with. It's the $2 way to get your cat to perform the most hilarious antics of their nine lives, so I suggest having a camera ready.,

    Promising review: "I have a whole room filled with cat toys that my cat is not interested in. It's funny how the least expensive cat toy I have makes him go wild. He plays with this until he's panting like a dog and I've never seen him jump so high. I'm certain this toy will help him lose his belly. He loves it! I highly recommend it!" —Kwoo

    2. A roll-on headache and migraine relief stick, which I haven't stopped talking about it since I first tried it and I don't plan on stopping any time soon.

    Katy Herman/BuzzFeed, Yi Yang/BuzzFeed

    I started using this magical product (which is made with peppermint, spearmint, and lavender essential oils) a couple 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. 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 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.

    Promising review: "I have no earthly idea why this works, but it brought me back from the dead after an 11-day headache. I found it worked better to rub it all over my hot pack, zap it in the microwave, and wrap it around the base of my neck. The aromatherapy was great, and it dulled my headache enough to restore my will to live. 5/5." —Katie B.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    3. Pus-absorbing, pimple-eliminating patches over 2,000 reviewers rely on to zap their zits faster than they ever thought possible.,

    I use these all the time personally, and they're my favorite brand of pimple patch that I've tried (and as a BuzzFeed Shopping editor, I've tried several). Check out my full Nexcare pimple patch review.

    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." —Heather R. Weather

    4. A genius dish squeegee sure to make anyone who has ever done dishes and touched icky leftover food or struggled to clean up a countertop spill say, "Where have you been all my life?!?!"

    Hands using the tool to scrape sauce off a plate

    It's BPA-free and dishwasher safe! Plus, one side is curved so it works on bowls as well as plates.

    Promising review: "This product is AMAZING. We live in a studio apartment with a small kitchenette. Our sink likes to spray everywhere, and we don't have a garbage disposal. This product is not only is fantastic at scraping food off of our plates (so it doesn't go down the drain), but it helps to squeegee the countertop when water has sprayed everywhere!!" —Elizabeth

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    5. A pair of top-quality in-ear headphones that I personally love, but you don't have to take my word for it. You can also take the word of over 47,000 people who've left positive reviews.


    It comes with three different-sized pads so you can get your comfiest fit.

    Promising review: "Compared to MANY other earbuds that I've had that cost $75, $100, $150...these sound as good as any of them. I'm astounded! I use these for running. I figured for $8, I could afford to sweat up a few of these and replace them whenever I needed to. I'VE RUN 1,500 MILES WITH THESE in the last year and a half! I've gone through four pairs of New Balance shoes, two iPod Shuffles, three pairs of sunglasses, and I'm on the SAME set of earbuds! And THEY STILL SOUND GREAT! They stay in my ears, too!" —Gene Goodell

    Get them from Amazon for $8.20+ (available in 15 colors and with or without a mic).

    6. Verb Ghost Weightless Hair Oil, a detangling, moisturizing, smoothing, shine-boosting, frizz-reducing, strengthening wonder of a spritz to make every day a good hair day.


    Plus it's cruelty-free and vegan and the packaging is recyclable! BuzzFeed Shopping writer Nusrat Sultana swears by it, and says: "I use this after showers and it always makes my hair easy to comb. It also makes my ends look nice! It's so lightweight that it pretty much vanishes as soon as I put it in my hair, so my hair isn't oily and there's no residue left behind (love that). It also has a light citrus scent that's so lovely you'll be sad when it disappears (I know I always am)."

    Promising review: "Miracle oil! Saved my highlighted, damaged hair. My hair used to feel like dry straw, and now it's softer and easier to manage. I've tried a lot of other oils, leave-in conditioners and serums, but this is the only product that's made a significant difference. I've already recommended it to all my friends." —urbanfan

    Get it from Sephora or Amazon for $18.

    7. Latex-free, reusable toe covers here to solve the lifelong problem of bandages and other covers never staying on your toes. These will keep you comfy no matter what blisters, corns, ingrown toenails, and calluses have to say about it.,

    They've got over 1,800 positive reviews!

    Promising review: "I cannot live without these for 12-hour hospital shifts. This is an unbelievable product! I work 12-hour shifts in the hospital and need protection for the corn on my left big toe. I purchased the size large and it fit well. Underneath my socks and athletic shoes I completely forgot I was wearing it — bonus! The silicone is very soft and flexible and cleans easily. The product is priced well for the quality and quantity that is provided. Would absolutely recommend this since it's held up quite well for the 17 hours I often have it on (from the time I wake up until I'm back from my shift). Cleans and dries easily and has maintained its shape." —LJ

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $10.99 (available in two sizes and two colors).

    8. Microfiber makeup-removing cloths that'll get your whole face clean with — get this — just good ol' water.


    They've got 2,000+ positive reviews and are 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 set of three from Amazon for $4.49.

    9. Or Versed Day Dissolve Cleansing Balm, a vegan and cruelty-free formula that'll make taking your makeup at the end of the day a treat, not a chore.


    It's made with eucalyptus, avocado, and jojoba oils and vitamin E, plus it is paraben-free and comes in recyclable packaging so you can care for the earth after you care for your skin.

    Promising review: "I have been using this cleansing balm for about a month and have seen a significant improvement in the texture of my skin. It breaks down product like sunscreen and makeup easily without leaving behind a greasy film. The product has a strong eucalyptus smell but I don't mind it. My skin is literally crystal clear. I haven’t introduced any new products in my routine except for this balm, so I am confident it’s the ingredients that take the results over the top! Buy it. For context, my skin type is normal-oily." —Anonymous

    Get it from Versed for $17.99 (you can also get a mini size for $7.99).

    10. A ~sweet~ little clay bear who's more than just a cute face. Add water to him, and he'll 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: "Unbelievable! The brown sugar I had was in the original opened bag. It was so hard that I had to break it into pieces with a hammer in order to fit it into a new air-tight container I bought. According to the instructions, I soaked the Brown Sugar Bear in water and then put it on top of the rock-hard brown sugar chunks and closed the lid. It took a few days, but the brown sugar is now completely soft. I am truly amazed at how well this worked." —KK Vegas

    Get it from Amazon for $4.50.

    11. Coty Airspun loose face powder, a magical setting powder that over 6,000 reviewers use to help them really, truly slay all day.


    Promising review: "I am totally blown away by this product! I've been using Laura Mercier's Translucent loose setting powder (which is $39) for about six months, and was dissatisfied with the fact that my skin appeared greasy/oily by the end of the work day. By 5 p.m., I have been wearing my makeup for about 10 hours. I also live in a warm climate and have oily skin. By the end of my work day using this powder, my face is still very matte! I am THRILLED! This way outperforms the Laura Mercier powder and is about 13% of the cost. I can't believe it. I'm never going back." —AlexisJulian

    Get it from Amazon for $5.97+ (available in six shades).

    12. The perfect, go-everywhere crossbody bag you've been searching for your entire purse-carrying life. Adjustable strap? Check. Room for all your crap? Check. Inside and outside pockets? Check. Cute design that's not too bulky? You guessed it, check. No wonder it's got over 3,800 5-star reviews!,

    Check out more of the best purses you can get on Amazon and BuzzFeed's full write-up on this bag.

    Promising review: "This is an unbelievable bargain. I've looked everywhere for the perfect crossbody bag, and this is it. The inside liner is soft and my giant iPhone 7 Plus fits perfectly in the front zipper!!! I'm about to order it in another color. The strap is longer than on most bags, which is what I was looking for." —S. Ducote

    Get it from Amazon for $15.95 (available in 63 colors).

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

    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

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $2.48.

    14. Amazingly real-looking clip-in hair extensions, which have gone to ~great lengths~ to earn over 4,000 positive reviews.,

    Promising review: "I CAN'T BELIEVE all the money I spent on natural hair extensions until I got these. OMG, I'm so amazed by how natural they look. They are super voluminous and soft. I bought two since my hair is really short and I like to use a huge amount of hair, but even with one you can rock lots of hairstyles. In the picture on the right I'm only wearing one and you can tell how good they are." —JE

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99 (available in five lengths and 48 colors).

    15. The TubShroom, a possibly magical drain protector that over 17,000 (!!!!!!!) reviewers depend on to make the process of cleaning their drain as easy and un-gag-worthy as possible.

    TubShroom Hair Catcher / YouTube

    This thing collects all the icky loose hair neatly around it (at the bottom, so you can't see it when the TubShroom is in place), so all you have to do is wipe it off! It's super simple, yet so genius that some folks are about ready to make it their religion — read for yourself:

    Promising review: "The TubShroom is a life-changer. To market this simply as a revolutionary bathtub strainer is to degrade the perfection of the TubShroom. People often describe their life split into ages, from childhood to college, from marriage to the birth of their children, career growth to retirement. I see my life divided into two distinct periods centered on one singular event: the gloomy, pestilent dark ages before TubShroom, and all the glorious, magnificent days thereafter. No amount of glowing, favorable adjectives will ever do justice to the magnificence of the TubShroom. These are but feeble, limiting words, which by their very nature, cannot capture the richness, splendor and transcendent power that is the TubShroom. The TubShroom is embodied enlightenment disguised as a humble implement to avoid bathtub clogs." —Zerubba U Levi

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

    16. 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. Just ask the over 13,000 positive reviewers.


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

    Promising review: "In 10 years, this is only my second review. These have blown me away to the point that I had to share an unexpected benefit. After getting a new pair of boots, I was having issues with the ease of getting my feet in/out without drastically adjusting the entire boot's lace tension each time. The Lock Laces looked like they could save me some time. Well, the results are better than I imagined. I can easily squeeze my feet in/out when needed, and I never have to adjust the tension. The Lock Laces are stretchy enough to both hold my feet snugly, AND have enough stretch to let my feet out when I try to get them off. Another added benefit is that they make walking and simply wearing my boots more comfortable. The original laces had no stretch at all, and gave the entire boot a rigid feel when tightened. The Lock Laces make the entire boot feel more comfortable, with good support all around, without the rigidity and pressure points." —John C.

    Get them from Amazon for $7.99 (available in 12 colors).

    17. Glam druzy and tassel statement earrings that'll add extra pizzazz to everything from jeans to an LBD and that look way more expensive than they are.,

    Check out BuzzFeed's full write-up on these gorgeous earrings.

    Promising review: "These are super cute and great quality. I like that it’s a stone-like effect on the top — I didn’t realize that from the pictures. I want more! I ordered a few other similar earrings at the same time that were cheaper. You could definitely tell the difference in the quality. The tassels on the cheaper ones were frayed and not as smooth as these. It was also nice that they sent multiple backs." —Kindle Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in 30 colors).

    18. An argan oil, vitamin E, and aloe vera hair serum perfect for saving dry, frizzy hair., Amazon

    It's got over 2,000 positive reviews!

    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." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    19. Colorful fine-tipped pens that have got the write stuff to make any office supply nerd's dreams come true.


    They work for everything from color-coding to note-taking to journaling to coloring.

    Promising review: "These really don’t bleed/show too badly through college-ruled or lined paper (or regular printer paper) and I LOVE them for schoolwork. They've made my life so much easier and prettier! They glide much more easily than regular pens. I also love that they seem to never dry out despite the fact that I’ve been using them for at least two weeks now and have left the most-used black marker open for several long periods already. I've come back to still find plenty of ink and no change in the writing ability. I think these are great quality pens and definitely worth the purchase." —NATTYLIGHT

    Get a pack of 18 from Amazon for $7.99.

    20. Compostable, hand towel-size body wipes in a compact container you can take and use pretty much anywhere — just add water!


    These hypoallergenic wonders come out of the container as compressed cylinders but expand when wet.

    Promising review: "I love these wipes! They are compact, eco-friendly, and great when you don't have a towel around. They are multi-purpose and can be used on the go as well. They expand so nicely with some water and the texture is soft and feels so amazing on the skin. I would recommend them and would buy again for sure. The packaging is also beautiful. They are easy to carry around and very lightweight. All around a great product." —Hala H.

    Get a pack of 10 from Maude for $12.

    21. CND SolarOil, a low-key miraculous 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.

    22. A Rapid Ramen Cooker with over 2,000 5-star reviews that can cook your noodles in the microwave in three minutes and must have been designed by someone with a pretty genius ~noodle~ themselves.

    A reviewer's cooked noodles in the maker, which is black and rectangular and can also be used as a bowl

    It's BPA-free and dishwasher safe! Plus, since you use less water, you can also use less seasoning and therefore reduce your sodium intake. It was presented on Shark Tank, and the Black-owned company now makes rapid cookers for everything from noodles to oatmeal to desserts!

    Promising review: "Possibly the best thing I have ever purchased. Like legit, it cooks the ramen perfectly and it's super easy to clean. I gave the red one to my friend who is also an avid ramen lover. I don't even put the flavoring in anymore — I can just mix in kimchi with some fish and it's like using spaghetti. Seriously sweet when you don't want to clean up a million pots and pans or wait or sweat your butt off over a hot stove." —P Y

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in five colors).

    23. A luxe silk scrunchie that's gentle on your hair and won't leave you with the dreaded split ends or post-ponytail crease. Plus, it'll look wayyy cuter on your wrist than your usual elastics.


    Promising review: "I don't usually write reviews, but this one deserves a shout-out. I have long, thick, unruly hair. Living in a dry climate, my hair is also very dry. I've purchased silk scrunchies before (LOVE THEM), however the cost makes me drag my feet. My wonderful dog took and buried my last silk scrunchie so I broke down and bought this one. It's very high quality, BEAUTIFUL, pure silk, and strong enough to hold my hair. It looks like most people use these at night, but use mine all the time. Silk doesn't dry my hair out at all, and if anything, makes my hair softer somehow with fewer flyaways. This particular scrunchie was a far superior quality than any other I've purchased. I will definitely will be buying a few more (no regrets whatsoever)." —dmvrlv

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 24 colors and prints).

    24. Glossier Boy Brow, a hypoallergenic, paraben-free brow shaping and filling gel that several of my coworkers LITERALLY never stop talking about.

    On the left, AnaMaria's brows looking thin with the text "Before :[". On the right, her brows fully filled in but looking very natural, with the text "After :')"
    Anamaria Glavan / BuzzFeed

    Especially shopping editor AnaMaria Glavan, whose full rave review you can read here (#5).

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my life?? It is a very small product, but you only need a little bit to get the perfect, thick, feathery brows. I am obsessed with the tiny applicator, and like all Glossier products, it is so lovely and natural. It makes it looks like you naturally have stunning brows. Lasts all day but is easy to wash off. Buy this — you won’t regret it." —Anna K.

    Get it from Glossier for $16 (available in four shades).

    25. And a Billie razor starter kit, another cult fave that BuzzFeed Shopping editors talk about more than pretty much any other product (and we talk about a lot of products). The kit includes a razor, a magnetic holder, and two blades for under $10.

    Natalie Brown/BuzzFeed, Kayla Suazo/BuzzFeed

    You can also subscribe to get refill packs whenever you need!

    Here's what editor Emma McAnaw has to say about Billie: "I have VERY sensitive skin. As in, I so much as LOOK at a dull blade and suddenly I'm on a one-way trip to little red bumps. Until Billie, I had kind of just accepted that my bikini line was never going to be ~perfectly smooth~ no matter what. And yet! When I started shaving with these razors, I immediately noticed how comfortable the whole experience was. I'll be honest and say I rarely use shaving cream (very responsible for someone with sensitive skin!) and it doesn't even MATTER. The blades never nick me and I've actually seen fewer and fewer bumps, even in my ~most sensitive~ areas. I credit its charcoal shave soap that encases the five (!!!) blades so if you 'forget' cream, you'll still get super smooth results. I'm pretty confident in saying if a total klutz like me has yet to do damage with these bbs, then everyone can benefit from these." Check out the enamored testimony of seven (!!!) other BuzzFeeders here.

    Get it from Billie for $9 (available in five razor colors).

    26. A natural shoe deodorizing spray made with lemongrass, mint, and tea tree essential oils that over 3,000 positive reviewers say can save even those shoes so stinky, you'd considered banishing them to a deep circle of Hell.


    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 anyways." —Broncodriver

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    27. An surprisingly roomy yet thin wallet with a RFID-blocking lining that's your heavy, bulky old wallet's worst nightmare — it's finally getting replaced.


    Promising review: "I ordered this wallet to replace one that I’ve had for close to eight years that just wasn’t able to hold the number of cards that I had anymore. I’m absolutely thrilled with it. It holds every single card that I have (20, some of which are stacked behind one another), my phone, and cash, all without feeling super bulky. It’s probably not large enough to hold something larger than a regular iPhone (I have a 6s), but for me it’s absolutely perfect. I’ll definitely be using this wallet for everything." —Amanda Parmelee

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in 30 colors).

    28. Glossier Balm Dotcom, a cruelty-free and antioxidant-rich universal skin salve that you can use on your lips or anywhere else for moisture that actually lasts, so it'll put every other balm you've ever tried to shame. Reapplying? I don't know her.


    Promising review: "As a lip balm collector, I would like to go out on a limb and say that this is probably the best balm I have used. It stays forever, doesn't wipe off with food or drinks or life, and is super nourishing. It's also really good value for money and lasts forever (mine has been with me for over a year)." —Aayushi S.

    Get it from Glossier for $12 (available in eight flavors and tints, including an untinted and unscented version).

    29. 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.

    On the left, a close up on a knit item covered in pills with the text "Before." On the right, the same item with almost all the pills gone and the text "After"

    It's got 9,000+ positive reviews and three depth settings so you can get a just-right shave. And the lint-collecting compartment detaches so it's super easy to empty! Get the required AA batteries here.

    Promising review: "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." —Dena Jensen

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

    30. Wreck This Journal, a super creative book that allows you to do just that. Each page has instructions and space to do a different delightfully destructive thing — from spill your coffee on it to throw the journal in the air.


    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!" —Aly McMuffin

    31. A plant-based, essential-oil scented dish soap made with biodegradable ingredients that are easy on the Earth but still relentlessly tough on dish grease.

    In addition to being friendly to the planet, this awesome brand is Black woman-owned!

    Promising review: "I love this dish soap, which is certainly not something I thought I'd ever say. It's super effective at cutting grease and easily getting dishes clean, without drying out my hands. The lavender grapefruit scent is lovely and not too strong, and it's a great value. I love that Angela creates such thoughtful, effective, science-based and clean formulations. It's the only dish soap I've bought in years, and I don't see myself ever buying any other brand ever again. Highly recommend." —Lindsey

    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!" —Nicole

    BuzzFeed/Taylor Miller,

    I actually got to try this baby on for a shoot we did at BuzzFeed — check out my coworkers and I modeling how versatile it is here!

    Promising review: "This top is extremely comfortable. So much so you can forget you're wearing it! I wore it traveling to Turks and Caicos and it looked fresh and felt fluid and soft at my destination. It's not the dressiest of tops, but for casual wear it's a good buy, and a jacket dresses it up sufficiently. This washes easily and DRIES QUICKLY. I used it as a pajama top in a pinch and it made a cool sleep top, too. I plan on buying more in various colors. The top falls at hip length, making it flattering and versatile for many body types. Love it." —Tobermory ~

    34. A salicylic acid, tea tree oil, and witch hazel body acne spray, because even if we don't like to talk about it, pretty much *everyone* sometimes gets zits places other than their face. Don't turn your back on bacne, people!

    Promising review: "I love how EASY this spray is. It’s always been an issue remembering to apply acne products on my back and it’s always annoying if I miss a spot. This spray is so easy and dries fast enough and WORKS. Especially for that price!! And I’ve barely made a dent in it and it’s almost been a month. Doesn’t ball up or anything by the way. Sinks right in! No irritation. :)" —Redlipsivania
