    Promising review: "My hair used to be really soft, and then I discovered hot tools and hair dye. While my hair looks good I really missed the soft texture. This works so well. There are no instructions on the box but I washed my hair with my usual shampoo, towel dried it, worked about two quarter-sized dollops through my hair, let it sit for 20 minutes and then rinsed out. I went to bed with wet hair which usually results in my hair being kind of tangled and rough looking but I woke up and my hair was as soft and silky as it was before I started coloring it. I'm totally in love with this product, I have long fine hair but this doesn't leave it greasy or weigh it down. I'll definitely buy again." —Ellie

    2. A hair finishing stick to take care of those annoying flyaways and baby hairs that just aren't cooperating. It's made of natural plant ingredients that have an immediate effect on your hair.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have super fine hair with lots of breakage. No matter how I put my hair up I have bad flyaways. This stuff is great! So easy and it stays better and looks smoother than stiff hair spray." —Jill Stilfield

    Get it from Amazon for $6.38.

    3. Or an edge control gel that'll help lay edges and baby hairs for a sleek look without the flaking and residue.

    amazon.com

    BUT we want to add that no one should feel pressure to lay their edges, unless they way want to! Check out, "Just A Friendly PSA That You Don't HAVE To Lay Your Edges Down If You Don't Wanna."

    Promising review: "Hands down! The best edge control I have ever used and I have used a lot of them. Stayed all day! No flakes and non greasy! And this one is not even the strongest in the line. Love this product!" —Seabea2013

    Get it from Amazon for $7.50+ (available in two sizes).

    4. A makeup brush shampoo, because let's face it, your brushes are probably in need of a really good cleaning! Not only does this soap visibly show results, but it is also paraben-, phthalate-, and petroleum-free with no perfume, so you don't have to worry about it irritating your skin.

    Ecotools is also a cruelty-free brand that makes majority of their products from natural and recycled materials.

    Promising review: "This cleanser is great! It fully removes all makeup from the brushes without leaving them feeling beat up (I'm not the most gentle when it comes to cleaning brushes). I use a thick foundation that soaks heavily into the bristles, but this removed it all. At first I thought it was a bit thin, but after using it, a little bit goes a long way. It has a nice lather, but very nicely and easily rinses out." —Kryssy

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    5. A pack of Bottle Bright tablets that'll make your favorite travel mug look brand new again, so you'll actually want to use it without being grossed out. Just drop in a tablet, let it sit for 15–30 minutes, and rinse!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug — I tried everything. Bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. It grossed me out so much that I bought ANOTHER HydroFlask to replace it. Now eventually they both got black inside, so I tried these little magic tablets. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY, without even scrubbing. They look brand new. What a magical product. No weird smell or taste afterward, either. I liked it so much I used it on another HydroFlask I use primarily to hold my Bloody Mary mix in the fridge. I couldn't put anything else in it because it would always taste like spicy tomato juice. Bottle Bright to the rescue! No residual smell or taste anymore. AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING." —Amazon Customer

    6. A pack of acne patches made with hydrocolloid dressing, tea tree oil, calendula oil, and cica to suck the gunk right out of your zits and help them fade away overnight.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Last night, I put these on a few acne problems (a small cyst, a whitehead, and a pimple). I just woke up and am writing this review in disbelief. THEY'RE FLAT! Gone! All of them! I could cry I’m so happy. The packaging is ideal because you can easily peel the stickers off without stretching them out or folding them back onto themselves. Do yourself and your complexion a huge favor! Have these on hand for a stubborn zit when you really need help. Make sure you apply them to completely clean and dry skin." —Caitlyn

    Get a pack of 40 round patches from Amazon for $8.50.

    7. A pumice cleaning stone you will want to keep your bathroom sparkling, because no one enjoys sitting on a yucky toilet. You can use it to remove difficult stains and rust on other surfaces as well, like steel, stone, and tile.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have a 19-year-old master bathroom toilet that had accumulated some nasty stains over time which regular toilet brushes and cleaning products just would not remove. Decided to try this pumice stone, figuring that the worst that could happen would be that it scratched the porcelain and I'd have to replace the toilet. Which was what I would have had to have done anyway, if I couldn't get the disgusting stains out. Pumice stone worked like a charm! Given the nature and severity of the stains, it required some elbow grease, but 10 minutes later I have a new-looking bowl, and I see no signs of scratching. Am very happy with this purchase... well worth the very low price!" —Happy Retiree

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    8. A Revlon one-step hair dryer and volumizer hot air brush for a fabulous professional-looking blow out in half the time you'd spend struggling with a blow dryer and round brush.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have very thick, wavy hair. I can never blow out my hair because it's too hard to hold the round brush and hair dryer in the right spots. THIS!! It is everything all in one and the oval shape makes it so easy to use. It gets really hot. It is a little loud on high, but I've found if my hair is already a little dry then I can just use it on low. I used a blow dry primer spray to accelerate the drying time and protect my hair. I'm in love! The flat iron always flattens my hair and makes it look dry. This straightens and retains the volume and gives it a soft, non-damaged look." —SAHM2011

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in five colors).

    9. A pack of velvet hangers so you can fit more into your closet and not worry about all of your shirts sliding right off after you just finished putting your laundry away.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These hangers are seriously low profile enough to give you close to twice the amount of space in your closet. Probably not necessarily a good thing, but I revamped my closet with these instead of donating a large portion of clothes to Goodwill (although I had already donated two other closets full until a friend recommended these hangers) and now my clothes all fit neatly! And they are sturdy, no more cracking hangers when you pull off an item of clothing in a tizzy. I'm very happy with my purchase of a few packs of these hangers. It cost pennies in comparison to a closet organizer system." —Lisa427

    Get a 30-pack on Amazon for $17.66+ (available in five colors and packs of 50 and 100).

    10. A fabric defuzzer for safely removing fuzz, lint, and pilling from your favorite sweatshirt.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this on a whim in last attempts to save my favorite duvet cover. The pills had gotten to the point where it was seriously uncomfortable to sleep with them getting all up in my leg space. I thought I was going to have to get a new duvet cover entirely. Along came this lil' baby. Not only is my duvet cover basically brand new, but I have found a new hobby. I’m depilling everything. Sweatshirts, leggings, blankets, socks, anything that looks like it needs some love. It does the job quickly and leaves everything looking fresh." —Sydney Jensen

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

    11. A jewelry cleaning pen that'll restore your bling and have it looking like it did when you first got it. It's super easy to use and it won't harm your jewelry.

    amazon.com

    This handy pen is filled with a cleansing and polishing solution with the ability to remove clouding dirt and oil from your stones. Simply twist the bottom of the pen to dispense the fluid and brush. Your jewels and heirlooms will look bright and shiny in no time!

    Promising review: "Don't get me wrong — my wedding ring was gorgeous before. It did sparkle and still made me smile every day. However...after using this Diamond Dazzle Stik...*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 dinge and schmutz marred my diamond until I cleaned it. It literally took my breath away with its fiery, dazzling brilliance!" —liltreeclimber

    Get it from Amazon for $7.70.

    12. A bottle of wood polish and conditioner to transform your old, worn-down furniture into a dazzling new focal point of your room.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "OMG! This is the most AMAZING product! We inherited some antique furniture from the '30s that had been in storage forever... it was dry and dirty and not much to look at. I used this product on it and the oak wood literally came alive showing the beautiful grain and texture of the wood. I have since used it on my oak kitchen cabinets and they look AMAZING! I will never use anything else other than this product on my wood surfaces! No greasy feel... fantastic smell!" —Tiffany Sadowski

    Get a bottle from Amazon for $13.62.

    13. A sneaker cleaner that'll take even your most rough looking pair of shoes and help them become presentable again. It even comes with a brush for scrubbing the dirt away.

    amazon.com

    The cleaner is super concentrated, so a little goes a long way!

    Promising review: "I have had my Nike Roshe runs for about a year now, and I don't go easy on them. I play sports and run in the dirt with them all the time, but I also like to wear them for fashion purposes. Pink Miracle helped restore my daily shoes to look like I just bought them — now I can wear them for even longer. Very pleased with Pink Miracle, I will buy it again when I run out of my bottle." —Romario

    Get it from Amazon for $24.97.

    14. A set of drill brushes so you can remove any of that hard-to-clean grossness that's caked up on your stove, grill, shower, or floor.

    amazon.com

    Make sure to use them only on surfaces you're pretty sure they won't scratch! And you can alway test in a discreet area first to check.

    Promising review: "I bought this on a whim because my walk-in shower is just a pain to clean. I'm 51 and I guess I've just been old school with how I clean, so hand scrubbing it was for years. The FIRST time I used this to clean my shower it took five minutes AND it scrubbed my shower more clean than it has been in years. In the corners, the floor, the glass door...everything came out squeaky clean. I'm NEVER cleaning my shower by hand again." —Terry

    Get the set of three brushes from Amazon for $14.95 (available in six colors).

    15. An effective ketoconazole anti-dandruff shampoo you'll love if you constantly stress over dandruff, itchiness, and flaking. The ketoconazole binds to your hair's natural protein to kill off the dandruff and keep your scalp healthy.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is absolutely amazing. I was one step away from going to the dermatologist. I had severe dandruff that was so bad I could shake my head and it would come off. With just a few uses per week, I got rid of all of my flakes. My scalp also stopped burning from dryness. My hair has never been healthier." —Moo Moo

    Get it from Amazon for $14.84.

    16. A pair of small deep clean scrub brushes to get all of the cracks and crevices in your place squeaky clean.

    reviewer's tile floor with half of it showing dirt between the tiles and the other part with it looking clean and white between the tiles
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I HIGHLY recommend these brushes for grout. If you are on the fence of 'Ehhh do I NEED a grout brush? I could just scrub the floor...' Stop. Get these brushes. They are stiff and cut down the elbow grease time incredibly. Plus you can use them on anything. Pros: Sturdy, easy to clean, solid brushes. Con: Hands may 'hurt' a bit after use due to elbow grease." —Jennifer

    Get the two from Amazon for $6.99.

    17. A car cleaning spray so you no longer have to be embarrassed when it's your turn to drive your friends around. This multi-purpose cleaner can work on upholstery, fabric, canvas, leather, plastic, rubber, and more!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have used every product that you can find on the shelves of your local store. When I sprayed the cleaner on the light beige interior of a 25+ year-old car, the interior turned to its original color. After years of detailing, I had assumed at this point, the color was set and that's it, not with this stuff. While cleaning it I literally said out loud, 'No way, no way,' because I was in disbelief at how amazing it worked, and the results are in the compliments I receive from friends." —Andrea Garcia

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in two sizes).

    18. A rust stain remover to get rid of the unappealing rust that's holding your bathroom back from being #goals.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I used it on our tubs, toilets, sinks, and shower. It took one bottle of this stuff to achieve the same result as three bottles of other brands. I will buy this again hands-down. I just sprayed, walk away for a few minutes, and wiped and rinsed." —Carrie D.

    Get it from Amazon for $4.98.

    19. Glossier's Boy Brow for a quick and easy way to have your brows poppin'. It'll fill them in, without making them stiff or flakey. If you don't trust yourself with a brow pencil or pomade (@ me) then this is definitely the move!

    This product is loved by one of our editors! Read more about the Glossier products we really love (it's #5 on the list)!

    Here's an excerpt: "The creamy formula, which comes in blond, black, clear, and brown (which is what I used!), goes on smoothly and doesn’t require a lot of product to do the job.

    Boy Brow does exactly what the Glossier brand claims to do; it gives me a filled-in eyebrow that doesn’t look filled in. The finish looks natural, which is exactly what I wanted — my facial caterpillars have never looked better." —AnaMaria Glavan

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

    20. A carpet cleaning and deodorizing solution to add to your carpet cleaner and make all of those odors and stains from your furry friend disappear.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I live in an apartment so the carpet quality is not the greatest. I had a stain that occurred from a garbage can liner leaking a long line of... I don't know what... across a four-foot piece of carpeting. No home remedies worked. Bought a steam cleaner I had been wanting and this product. I am totally amazed at how well it worked! The stain is gone. I need to add that I had tried EVERYTHING with a lot of elbow grease and nothing else worked. Whatever it was in my carpet this product was removed completely after two applications in two days!" —Cat D.

    Get it from Amazon for $16.97.

    21. A bottle of sulfate-free Biotin shampoo infused with tea tree, jojoba, and argan oils that can help with hair loss and prevent dandruff.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this shampoo! I had gastric sleeve surgery and my hair was very, very thin. I started taking biotin and switched to biotin shampoo as recommended by my doctor. It doesn’t make your hair grow by washing it but it makes your hair and roots stronger. And it worked. After using the whole bottle, my hair was stronger. I had a lot of new growth that was sticking around (the previous new growth fell out early on) and my hair was getting thicker. Eight months later, my hair is back to normal. It's longer and thicker than ever. I still use it twice a week and love it! I’m not crazy about the way it smells but others love it when they smell my hair." —Diane J. Huff

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    22. A bottle of pet earwax remover for a gentle, non-toxic way to keep your doggo's ears clean.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My husband and I just adopted our cute puppy, Winston, from the humane society. When we adopted him his ears were unfortunately pretty dirty, but after using this ear cleaner today his ears are so clean!! I'm so amazed at everything it managed to get out. Our puppy's ears look so much better now! I would highly recommend this product to anyone with a dog." —AmazonLurker

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    23. A bottle of nail and cuticle care oil that uses a natural blend of jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, and vitamin E to soften your cuticles and strengthen your nails.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I had peeling, weak nails for years. Tried everything. I bought this in February. This size bottle lasted a bit more than a month religiously applying it two to three times a day. I was really seeing great improvement so I bought another bottle in late March. By May, all the peeling had grown out and my nails were getting stronger every day. I then bought the big four-ounce refill bottle because I never want to run out of it again! Cannot recommend this stuff enough!" —Diana

    Get it from Amazon for $8.50.

    24. A carpet and upholstery stain remover for finally getting rid of that big wine stain in the middle of your living room carpet.

    amazon.com

    Promising reviews: "If you are ever thinking you might need this, TRUST ME you do! This is only the second review I’ve ever written, but felt like I needed to because this product is so amazing. My 2-year-old threw up chocolate milk on our cream carpet. It was a complete disaster. I tried everything and nothing even made a dent in it, until this. It’s also scentless, which was great because I got the stain up right before my little girl’s bedtime. TOP NOTCH!" —Jillian Briggs

    Get it from Amazon for $11.19.

    25. A bleach-free powder cleaner to easily remove rust, tarnish, and stains from your sink, floor, dishes, and more. You're going to be pouring this stuff everywhere once you see how well it works!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff works so well, you'll feel like you're in a staged infomercial where your surfaces are left gleaming and impossibly new. I removed the worst stains from my white ceramic sink, which I had tried everything on — bleach, oxygen cleaners, lemon, and baking soda. Nothing worked. But sprinkle some Bar Keeper's Friend on there with about 10 minutes of elbow grease and BOOM, it looks almost brand new. I'm obsessed. I could not recommend it more." —KathleenH

    Get it from Amazon for $7.90 (also available in packs two, three, and six).

    26. A jar of O'Keeffe's hand cream that'll really come in ~handy~ during winter as it helps to repair painful blisters and cracked skin.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Every winter, my fingers and knuckles crack and bleed. I've tried everything on the market to heal my hands. I received this hand cream yesterday and when I put it on, I could tell right away that this was better than anything I'd tried. This stuff started working immediately. I filled all the cuts and cracks on my hands with this cream, and today they are almost healed. I believe that this is the best hand cream ever made on earth." —Steve

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (also available in packs of two and 12).

    27. A hydrating argan oil hair mask and deep conditioner to strengthen and restore weak and damaged hair. It'll make it look and feel healthier and it should also improve hair growth as well.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I am a big junkie when it comes to hair masks because of my frizzy ends and trying to find as natural products for it as possible. I used to use coconut oil, but Argan oil is hands down the best for everyone's hair. The way I used it I just applied it on my bottom half of hair (never apply hair masks and conditioners on scalp because it has no effect other than making it oily) and left it in for about 15 minutes before washing it off. Besides smelling really good, my ends felt moisturized and definitely weren't as frizzy or dry." —piret90

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    28. Tarte Shape Tape concealer for the ultimate one-and-done beauty product to make any pimples, under-eye bags, or scars go bye-bye in seconds. No more digging through your makeup bag to find four different products, this is all you need!

    Kayla Boyd / BuzzFeed

    This is my holy grail concealer! I love it so much that I'm always buying it before I run out because I seriously use it every time I put on makeup. Under-eye bags? A pimple? Hyperpigmentation? I DON'T KNOW HER! This stuff seriously covers all my blemishes and it's super easy to apply. The formula is on the thicker side, but it blends wonderfully. It doesn't make you look cakey or leave creases. Plus, it's super convenient to carry around and apply on-the-go. This product is honestly worth the hype.

    Promising review: "I love everything about this product. It's soft and creamy and easy to blend into my skin. It lasts all day and doesn't crease!! It also makes it easier for me to wear just concealer on my more lazy days without looking like an incomplete face. LOVE IT." —Trent U.

    Get it from Tarte for $27 (available in 30 shades).

    29. A non-toxic leather cleaner and conditioner you can use to help remove dirt, oil, tough stains, and grime from your furniture, car seats, and even your leather accessories.

    amazon.com

    And make sure you mix this concentrate with water before using!

    Promising review: "My 15-year-old leather sectional hadn't been cleaned or conditioned in three to four years because I couldn't find anything that worked well without causing it to look blotchy. The color was also fading and I thought it was a goner. After some elbow grease, the sectional looks great! It's now back to its original color without being blotchy. More importantly, the suppleness has returned. I can actually say that it looks as good as the day we bought it." —jellybean55

    Get it from Amazon for $18.95 (available in two sizes).

    30. And a Biossance squalane and lactic acid resurfacing night serum helpful for exfoliating your skin and working to give it a smoother, brighter, and more even-toned appearance. Just massage two-three pumps into your skin at night and you'll wake up *glowing*.
