    1. A long-lasting eyeshadow primer that'll not only make sure your perfectly blended smokey eye stays in its place from sunrise to sunset, but bring out the pigments to deliver bold color.

    Promising review: "So good and so affordable! I compared swatches on my arm with the primer and without and it made a huge difference! The bottom two swatches are with primer, the top two are without. The eyeshadow was so much richer when used with the primer and I needed less eyeshadow to get a good color. More than worth the money. I'm officially converted to the primer life lol." —Anonymous

    Get it from Amazon for $5.95 (available in five shades).

    2. A curling wand guaranteed to give you blowout-status waves at a fraction of the price...and in your own home. This is what beauty on a budget looks like, and I LOVE IT.,

    Promising review: "This just might be my favorite of the six curling wands I own. What I love about this one is that it makes natural-like curls. Natural curly hair isn't perfect and uniform and this gives that spiral natural yet beachy curly girl look. It heats up fast and is easy to wind your hair around. I hold my medium textured long hair on the wand for a total count of seven seconds and release. Hold the blue handle in the up position and just wrap your one to two inch section of hair around it." —Karli E.

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99.

    3. A doggy sprinkler pad so your pooch can have some fun in the sun alongside their owner. Hello, how could you not get this for them?!

    Promising review: "We're already hitting triple digits in Arizona, and I wish I'd found this wonderful splash pad years ago. Both of our dogs lost their minds with happiness when I set this up. They had a fantastic playtime with both the fountain effect and just tromping around inside the pool. Great way for them to cool off and get some exercise when it's just too hot for their normal trail runs. Reasonably priced with easy setup right out of the box, and it held up very well against their rough play. Seems very durable and looking forward to an entire summer of cool playtime in the desert heat! Highly recommend if your dogs love water, and this would be fun for small children as well!" —Kayce

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in three sizes).

    4. A five-quart wok from 360 Cookware that'll become a staple piece in your pot and pan lineup. This versatile baby is perfect for cooking those wok dishes, and is oven-safe so creating one-pot meals is easier than ever.

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

It's been perfect for my new WFH/eat every meal at home lifestyle I've grown accustomed to the past year.

    Promising review: "The photos are before and after. These took about 5 minutes to install. They look amazing. Neighbors thought we purchased new garage doors." —Shanna

    Get the set from Amazon for $18.99.

    9. A Mediterranean-esque peel-and-stick wallpaper that'll give you the upgrade you want for a fraction of the price. This on stairs? I never would of thought but now I need immediately.,

    Promising review: "The paper of my dreams! Thick, easy to install, VERY forgiving pattern, and I was able to pull off and reposition several times with no loss of stickiness. Can’t say enough good things! Not even a bad smell like I was expecting after reading other reviews. One roll covered my entire set of stair risers with exactly the right amount and a very tiny strip leftover. Posting a before and after so you can be amazed at the transformation like I was. The results are just what I was hoping for and more." —BwHow

    Get a roll (measures 198" x 20.5") from Amazon for $25.30+ (available in three colors).

    10. A set of silky-soft satin pillowcases designed to help keep your hair from frizzing, your skin from breaking out, and your dreams sweet.

    Two pillows with the satin pillowcases stacked on one another on a bed

    Promising review: "I love this SOOO MUCH! The hype for silk pillowcases is real! I have a FULL head of hair that is very long, which has also been processed to death. Since my hair is always so dry due to all of the color processes, I like to air-dry it to save it from being damaged further by the heat. Well, my hair would always look like a frizzy mess the morning after, even though I saturated my hair with leave-in treatments and treatment oils. Finally, I decided to try out a silk pillowcase and I'm obsessed! I can now rock my air-dry hair the next morning without looking like I have a rat's nest on my head. The only thing I wish this had is zippers. Since silk is slippery, the cover tends to fall off the pillows often. Other than that, this is perfect. I'm going to bring a pillowcase with me when I travel!" —Rubicant

    Get the set of two from Amazon for $6.98+ (available in standard, queen, and two king sizes and in 24 colors).

    11. A waffle iron with a built-in overflow channel to catch any oozing batter and make for a mess-free breakfast. What's better than that AND waffles?!

    Promising review: "I love waffles but there’s so much more you can use a waffle iron for. I’ve made paninis, quesadillas, grilled cheese, cake, brownies, fritters. The best is cinnamon rolls. You can cook them in half the time and the indentations from the iron keep the icing from falling onto the plate. I use mine multiple times a week." —aestainback

    Get it from Amazon for $36.24+ (available in three colors).

    12. A charcuterie board that is what charcuterie board dreams are made of. Who is the host with the most? You, clearly!

    reviewer image of board styled with cheeses and fruits

    The set includes four cheese knives and utensils, three slate labels, two white markets, a wine opener, and a carrying bag.

    Promising review: "I got this for my mother as a gift and she absolutely loved it! My mom is not an easy person to shop for and has the kitchen of a 5-star restaurant, so finding something she doesn't have and really enjoys is hard. Would heavily recommend this product!" —Dana Evans

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99.

    13. A pretty set of nail wraps for elevating your at-home mani to much fancier heights. Just peel, stick, and file and voila! Look at these floral beauts:

    Pretty Fab Nails

    This darling little biz is based in Florida and sells a variety of nail wrap designs, stickers, and nail tools and accessories.

    Promising review: "I wanted to wait to review these nail wraps as they just kept going! I bought these thinking I would be happy if they lasted the weekend... I finally removed them last night after 26 days! I followed the application instructions (swipe nail with nail polish remover beforehand), and finished with a top coat, making sure to cap the tip of the nail too. When wearing these nails, I bathed, I swam, and they still lasted! One set will be enough for two applications for short nails. I would definitely purchase these again!" —Charlotte Wilkinson

    Get a set from Pretty Fab Nails on Etsy for $5.99.

    14. A hard-water remover to *finally* and *easily* rid glass surfaces from that cloudy film. You may end up running into your practically invisible shower door, though — you've been warned.

    It has 1,700+ positive reviews on Amazon!

    Promising review: "When we moved into our new place the shower doors looked like they had never been cleaned before. I tried at least 10 different products and methods to remove the hard water spots but nothing even made a dent. Bio Clean, however, was like a magic eraser! I scrubbed the door for about 10 minutes and it was incredible! I’ve never written a cleaning product review before but this one is worth every penny." —Shane B

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99 or a two-pack for $29.99.

    15. A shoe whitener that'll give your white kicks a much needed refresh. Dab, dab, dab this stuff on and your sneakers will look like they came straight outta the box.

    Promising review: "This product works miracles. As you can see, my poor Vans became dirty, so I cleaned them and made the intelligent decision to use peroxide and put them in the sun to dry. Even with the yellowing and deep stains, this product brought them back to their bright dazzling glory and it looks decently brand new. Love it!!!! Also, this is sort of like a paint rather than an actual cleaner, so always make sure you clean your shoes then apply it." —Catherine

    Get it from Amazon for $6.69.

    16. A large hair diffuser adapter compatible with most blow dryers so you can achieve frizz-free, natural curls without having to spend money on an entirely new dryer. Goodbye, flyaways. Hello, sleek blowouts at home.

    Promising review: "Fits perfect! I really wanted a bowl diffuser and this one works really well. I like that I can actually fit all my hair into the bowl, or at least most of it, and dry it in half the time it would take for other FLAT 'bowl' diffusers. I love this diffuser! It dries my hair quickly, thoroughly and does not cause frizz. Perfect curls every time!" —M

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    17. A car visor extender so you can freakin' see the road when ~golden hour~ makes it impossible. It blocks up to 99.9% of UVA and UVB rays, reduces glare, dims brightness — and your eyeballs are about to be so happy.

    Glare Guard, the clever small business that makes this add-on visor, was started by maker Mark Smith. Mark used to work in the movie theater business, and now he and his son are helpin' drivers see better on the roads with their smart invention.

    Promising review: "This is the visor I have been searching for! I have a small car, and its visor did little to help me driving into the sun, both going to and coming from work. This is a game changer! It’s easy to install, and easy to flip into place." —Fran

    Get it from The Grommet for $29.95.

    18. A stainless-steel insert that'll transform your charcoal grill into a PIZZA OVEN. Yes, you can make pizza on your grill, and dinner is at your house!


    Promising review: "I really researched and shopped around before I purchased this from Amazon. I cooked my first pizza on it and it came out like a pro!! We will be using this especially during the summer as it pretty much stay in the triple digits here (the Mojave Desert). I cannot believe it took less than 10 minutes to bake an entire pizza. I recommend that you go to the KettlePizza website to get pointers from some of the celebrity chefs that they have videos of. These pointers really did help me to cook a perfect pizza!" —Kim Suzanne

    Get it from Amazon for $134.99.

    19. A bottle of Clove + Hallow's The Everything Oil that's all about the name. The four ingredients in the formula (say hello to squalane, organic rosehip, black cumin seed, and argan oils) work together to do just a little of everything: Regulate skin's oil production, moisturize, and deliver a dose of antioxidants.

    Clove + Hallow

    Clove + Hallow is a woman-owned brand based out of Atlanta, GA that was created to provide high-quality, vegan products all with 15 clean ingredients or less.

    Promising review: "Where do I begin?! I’m a 41-year-old woman who is recently dealing with adult acne. I have tried so many different products, paying ridiculous amounts of money and I was at the point where I’d try anything and I’m glad I gave this oil a shot. It truly is the only product that helps my acne. Not only helps with my acne but controls my oily skin. Weird, you would think putting oil on your face would make it note oily. Nope this everything oil is amazing!! My skin had never felt/looked so good. This will be my go to product from now on!" —Shannon R.

    Get it from Clove + Hallow for $28.

    20. A microwave bacon cooker so you can indulge your bacon cravings without turning on the stove, frying bacon, turning the bacon, de-greasing the bacon, soaking the pan, etc., etc., etc.

    Promising review: "This is the best little gadget I have tried in a long time. I lay a paper towel on top and fold to drape over the edges to catch the splatters, program for one minute per slice of bacon, and that is it. If you have a full rack, 12 slices, you will take the rack out, remove the ones that are done, put back in, cook for additional one minutes until all are to your satisfaction. You can put the gadget into the dishwasher or wash in good soapy water and have it ready for the next use." —G. Carver

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    21. A double-ended extension cord, because sometimes you need two but only have one outlet to spare. Go ahead, plug that lamp in! And that charger! And that router!

    extension cord with two different ends

    Cords are 6 feet long and have three plugs each.

    Promising review: "I have no idea why these are not sold everywhere. PERFECT for my room! I ended up getting this due to my king size bed being against a wall with only one outlet. I needed a way to connect my two lamps on my nightstand and this is absolutely, without a doubt, the very best solution to connecting my lamps and also not having all my outlets taken up. I recommend this to everyone! Also perfect for outlets connected to a switch to turn on and off both lights at the same time." —Ryan

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in black and white).

    22. A plant fertilizer to breathe new life into the plant you over-optimistically bought, thinking you could keep it alive by just guessing when it needs watering. Been there (still do that).

    Promising review: "I have a ton of indoor houseplants that I got over the fall/winter, so I wasn't using fertilizer since they were all dormant. Now that it's spring/summer I needed to purchase a fertilizer to encourage growth. I came home one day and saw one of my birds nest ferns was drooping and looked like it was dying. I ordered this fertilizer and watered/fed it the next day. These pictures are about 24 hours apart. The fertilizer perked the poor guy right back up!! This stuff is a great value, and super easy to use. So happy with my purchase, thanks for saving my plant!!!" —Melissa C

    Get it from Amazon for $17.95.

    23. A handy tool so you can ditch the struggle that is fake eyelash application. It holds the falsies in place so adding glue is easy, and actually attaching them to your lash line is even easier. Thank the heavens, honestly.

    reviewer image of clamps holding fake eyelashes

    Promising review: "Very easy to use and affordable. I was able to put on my lashes in no time. I can't believe I use to apply my lashes without this amazing tool. I place my lashes directly in the center and adjust the ends. My lashes go on in 1min it less with this tool." —CITY Beauty

    Get it from Amazon for $4.98 (available in three colors).

    24. A vacuum hose attachment specifically made for your dryer vent. A little suction will suck out a TRULY surprising amount of lint from your dryer and hose that builds up overtime and increases risk of dryer fires.,

    Promising review: "Honestly, we are speechless! We are excellent about cleaning the lint trap after every load of clothes. We even clean the lint vent outside. But nothing could have prepared us for the amount of lint and gunk trapped in the vent tubing! How we have never had a fire, we have no idea. We vacuumed forever all the way up the vent tube, which we could have in no way done without this item. The suction power was unbelievable! We could not believe how bad the tubing was clogged. Just look at the picture. We removed about 3/4 of a kitchen garbage bag size of lint and gunk! It was amazing and embarrassing! It’s SO inexpensive, but it could literally save you from a house fire! Anyway, just buy it. Excellent value! You won’t be sorry!" —Brian Mattix/Elizabeth Bodnam

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    25. Sheet pan dividers that are microwave-, dishwasher-, and oven-safe to make cooking and prepping an actual breeze. Cook what you want, how you want, without the hassle of bake times for separate foods. With these, you can remove what you need when you need!

    26. A life-changing shoe powder – it kills odor-causing bacteria and keeps your best shoes from smelling like death. Hot summer days are approaching fast — now you and your feet can get through them stink-free.

    reviewer image of powder applied inside shoes /

    Promising review: "This has restored my belief in Santa, the Easter bunny, the Tooth Fairy, and all magic again. We search and searched for a foot powder, or treatment, or even reasonably priced hazmat suits for when our teenage son took off his shoes. Nothing we tried worked apart from making him stay outside. Until we tried this powder. It’s a very mild scent when you sprinkle it in the shoe itself, instead of a heavy perfumed mask scent like all other foot powders, sprays, little scent balls etc. I honestly didn’t think there was anyway it could actually stop the hazardous stench that dwelled within our teen's footwear. It was so natural-smelling, by day two of using it in said stinky teen's boots there was nothing. It’s like this product neutralized the odor. It was sweet sweet freedom." —Kelli Gebauer

    Get it from Amazon for $11.98.

    27. A set of transparent, shatter-resistant, leak-proof, air-tight leftover and lunch containers so your leftover or meal prep game becomes and actual reality (and your soup or salad dressing never ends up seeping anywhere it's unwelcome).

    Glass containers stacked on each other holding different foods inside a fridge

    These heavy-duty plastic containers are microwave-, freezer-, and dishwasher-safe. They even have little vents you can open so you can microwave them with the lid on, preventing splatters!

    Promising review: "Best upgrade! We'd been using plastic storage containers from the grocery store, where you pay $8 and get a bunch from a plastic bag company. My husband HATED those. They would stain, leak, or smell — even after they were cleaned. So when I saw these on BuzzFeed, I ordered a kit. We love them! Easy to clean, certain foods don't stain, not one leak has happened — and we eat soup and stir fry a lot for lunch. I immediately ordered five more so we could have a total of eight. We tend to do lunch at work 4/5 days. It was perfect. Also, the food seems to stay a bit fresher too, because of it being airtight. 100% would recommend to anyone looking for a good set of storage containers." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99 for an 8-piece set (also available in other set sizes).

    28. A battery-operated handheld mixer for whipping up a heavenly frothy milk concoction right at home. Skip your morning stop at the coffee shop, and save ya-self some dang money.,

    Promising review: "This has revolutionized my coffee routine and allows me to make lattes, like they do at Starbucks, at home. I have used it exclusively with plant-based milks (coconut, almond, etc.) and it perfectly froths non-dairy milks. I actually found that plain almond milk froths better than any other plant-based milk, for all you vegans out there. I can't tell you how much money I have saved not having to go to the coffee shop every time I want to have a delicious latte. It makes a beautiful, delicate foam that holds up for the whole cup of coffee. I love that there's still foam even in the last sip. Also, you can use this for the fancy cold foam to have with iced coffee drinks. I love this device so much! I couldn't go back to just coffee and cream after having tried the perfect lattes made by this." —Lindsey Catherine

    Get it from Amazon for $17.95 (available in 11 colors). Requires two AA batteries.

    29. A clever little water bottle ideal for outdoor workouts and jogs. It comes with a secret compartment in which you can store cash, cards, and keys.

    Promising review: "This thing goes everywhere with me. It makes going to the gym, zumba, and yoga so much simpler! There's no need to fight with a purse or wallet because all you need is this handy dandy water bottle." —OlyGirl

    Get it from Amazon for $18.50+ (available in two colors).

    30. A versatile clip to keep your bag off of the dang floor. Seriously, you can use this thing on grocery carts, stall doors, tables, chairs, and in soooo many other public places.,

    Promising review: "I have a very heavy, large purse that is a bottomless pit. One time I put my purse on the back of my chair at a cafe and the whole chair flipped over, that is how heavy my bag is. I was looking for something so that I could hook my purse on things so it wasn’t sitting on the floor and was more accessible. I love this little gadget. I have used it on everything from bathroom stalls to tables to grocery carts. This thing really grips. All of my girl friends love it and have gotten them for themselves." —Jennifer

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

    31. An emergency drain cover because sometimes it's just nice to have a completely full bath without the last few inches of hot water draining completely away — no more constant refilling.

    reviewer in tub filled up high with water and bubbles

    If you get home after an exhausting day, you deserve a nice bath to relax in!

    Promising review: "My husband loves baths and I purchased this mainly for him because he's a big person and every little bit of extra water depth he can get is wonderful. You can really get an extra two to three inches. The suction cups fit easily on the tub and you don't have to use much pressure at all. They stick as soon as you push a little and you can even hear a little 'click' sound as you push each one, telling you it's sealed. Our cover never 'floats off' or comes off the tub until we take it off, and when we do, it is easily removed. All in all, a great purchase!" —artsqueenbee

    32. A drywall repair kit to undo the damage done during the afternoon soccer game your friends decided to play in the living room.

    Reviewer's before and after showing a small dent in their wall, and the after photo showing how the kit fixed it with no hole

    Promising review: "This spackle is so handy! Much easier and faster than opening a regular container of spackle, then finding a putty knife to use and sand paper. Everything you need is right there. I filled probably close to 50 small holes and nicks from kids throwing toys, etc. in less than 15 minutes. Would definitely recommend this." —Michelle Smith

    Get it from Amazon for $5.98.

    33. Shower curtain rings with two separate hangers for your curtain and liner that'll make it incredibly easy to remove either for cleaning. Save the precious free time you have during the week to do fun things, instead of fighting to get your grimy curtain off.

    curtain rings with two separate hooks to hold liner and curtain

    Promising review: "This is one of those items you didn’t know you needed, and once you get it you can’t help but wonder you ever managed before. I absolutely hate taking the shower curtains off because of the whole open and close for multiple shower curtains. I know you’re like, ‘It’s just shower curtain hooks.’ And it is. But when you have to change out the creepy shower liner, that likes to attack you, and you dread doing so, this just adds seconds to your life. No more unsnapping. Simply take out the liner, place the liner on the appropriate hook, and presto." —Nardsbaby
