    35 Products With Results That May Genuinely Surprise You

    Hard-workin' things that'll give ya the before-and-afters you paid for, gosh darn it.

    1. Reusable produce storage bags for keeping your freshly bought fruits and veggies actually fresh, so you have a real chance at eating them this time. Hello! Look at these results!

    2. A miracle-working oil that'll condition your nails and soften your cuticles thanks to its jojoba- and vitamin E-rich formula. Brittle, cracked nails have no place on your hands!

    3. And! A clear, bitter-tasting nail polish to help train your brain to keep your fingers out of your mouth and kick that nail-biting habit for good.

    4. A dry shampoo POWDER (!!) so you can ditch the shower on late mornings and end up with hair that *looks* like it just got a fresh wash. Hey, nobody has to know it's going on day three...or five.

    5. A magic carpet spot cleaner with such unbelievable results, you'll rethink everything you've ever known about stain removers. I mean, my eyes can't even believe what they are witnessing here:

    6. A no-yellow shampoo to tone down unwanted yellow hues in blonde hair so your mane keeps the vibrant, natural color from your last salon visit — you know, which means less pricey touchups!

    Three reviewer photos showing the progression after one wash and then two. The after photos get progressively lighter and less yellowish.

    7. A pack of bottle-cleaning tablets with pretty impressive results and I bet you thought your extra slimy water bottle was a goner, right? Nope!

    Reviewer's progression photos showing tons of gunk bubbling up from water bottle. The after photo shows a clean water bottle with no stains.

    8. A pedicure rasp — aka a CHEESE GRATER FOR YOUR FEET — to literally shave away dead, cracked skin and leave behind baby soft feet.

    Reviewer's before and after using the rasp, with the before photo showing severely cracked and dry feet. The after photo shows smooth, almost healed feet.

    9. A rosehip oil that'll tackle (and DEFEAT!!!) your skin's biggest woes: Dryness, flakiness, redness, breakouts — you name it. They don't stand a chance when ~faced~ with this.

    10. A powerful grout cleaner, because beautiful, grime-free grout lives under all that dirt, you just have to believe, scrub (automatic brush, anyone?), and use a little bit of this magic:

    Reviewer's before and after showing cleaner, whiter grout after using the cleaner

    11. And! An angular brush with narrow bristles for getting in those tough corners, which we all know is where grime loves to hang out!

    12. A disgustingly amazing drain snake for cleaning out every last bit of the nasty hair ball currently occupying your shower pipes so your drain can finally breathe again.

    13. A Glossier brow pomade so you can groom, fill in, and thicken your brows with just one product. And it's made with a creamy wax formula that will provide extra hydration, so LITERALLY WHAT CAN THIS PRODUCT *NOT* DO?

    16. A spray gel for removing tough rust stains with a few spritzes and minimal (MINIMAL!) scrubbing on your part.

    17. An at-home eyebrow tint kit so you can achieve gorgeous, fuller-looking brows at home. Not having to leave the house? That's a win-win in my book!

    18. A food-grade mineral oil for rejuvenating dry, dull cutting boards back to their original vibrancy. It's tasteless, odorless, colorless, and is also safe to use on butcher blocks, countertops, and wooden bowls and utensils.

    19. A power drill brush attachment to deep clean showers, ovens, sinks, and anything that has unbeatable stains (until now that is!). I have this exact set, and now I look forward to my shower getting dirty, just so I can clean it...

    20. A wildly popular mascara that'll give your lashes natural volume and length with just a few flicks of the wrist, so those minimal makeup days are even easier.

    22. A super affordable curling wand that'll help you master beachy waves, no problem. It features a ceramic barrel, which can help prevent heat damage and frizz — and this may be the best $25 you will ever spend!

    23. A headlight restoration system because drivin' around with foggy lights = bad, and spending tons of money to replace headlights = bad. This solves both of those dilemmas!

    Reviewer's before/after pic of headlights. After pic shows much clearer headlights.

    24. An eyeshadow primer to keep your perfectly blended smokey eye in its dang place, from sunrise to sunset. No more smudging, flaking, creasing, and can I get a hallelujah?!

    26. Machine-washable and reusable cloths that'll gently remove dirt and makeup from your skin with a splash of some water. Just toss in the washer after a few uses and start savin' your hard-earned dollars — no more expensive wipes here!

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

    34. And a compact hair roller so you don't have to lug out a giant vacuum just to remove the mounds of pet hair that's accumulated on your couch. That's time consuming and too much effort!

    35. A pack of touchup razors that'll gently and efficiently remove peach fuzz and dirt. The blades are designed with built-in guards so they won't cut your skin, plus you'll receive an extra attachment for super precise eyebrow shaping.

    Honestly, my eyes can't even believe all these results.
