This baby will save you from getting down on your hands and knees to scrub down your toilet bowl, because it does the work with every flush. Using it is simple: load the gel cartridge into the stamper and click the button to apply the gel sticker to your toilet bowl. It's actually really satisfying to use and I'm happy to report it works, too! It keeps my toilet smelling fresh and saves me from having to scrub away gross build-up on the bowl, meaning I have one less chore to do every week. This is the definition of working smarter, not harder, people!" —Alice Prendergast

    The mask contains hyaluronic acid, which is an impressive molecule that can hold 1,000 times its weight in water.

    "I have oily/combination skin, so my cheeks and chin tend to be drier than the T-zone. I love using the Pomegranate sheet mask to boost the moisture levels in my skin, but all the different types of masks are equal when it comes to hydration. Even after I remove the mask, there is so much product left on my skin and in the package that I use it the excess serum on my neck. I can immediately see brighter, smoother, and more hydrated skin after just 15 minutes on my face. I use them a couple times a week before I go to bed, so I wake up with my skin at its best." —Kaysey Davis

    BuzzFeed / Maitland Quitmeyer

    "I love my iPhone but I hate that I have to pick it up + point it at my face to unlock it. When the group texts come raining in during the work day, I’d like to be able to glance at them without taking the time to pick up, scroll through, and then putting it back down — my FOMO-y self needs to be sure the texts can wait until my next break for a reply! I can keep those group text updates truly ~at a glance~ — without interrupting my flow until I take a break later." — Maitland Quitmeyer

    It won't ruin your walls when you're ready to remove it, and if you run it under water, you can reuse it somewhere else.

    "The tape is so strong and durable, it'll pretty much stick to ANYTHING. Just how good is it? Well, I cut off a little bit of tape, and I pasted it on the uneven wallpaper in my apartment. And it stayed there! I placed a picture frame against it and pressed down firmly. The frame didn't even budge if I poked at it. Even better? I could easily remove the tape from my walls, and the wallpaper wasn't damaged at all. Even more amazing? Just rinse the used tape under some water and you can use it again!" —Asami Togi

    Amazon / Via, Mikael M. Melo/BuzzFeed

    "I've bought into the charcoal craze, but I didn't really want to go full charcoal (my white sink just couldn't handle the aftermath). So when I found out that Crest Charcoal Toothpaste would whiten my teeth, but not blacken my sink, I had to try it. I've only given it a week so far, but my teeth are already substantially whiter, and I haven't even been avoiding coffee! I have super sensitive teeth so I was a little worried to try it, but honestly, it hasn't affected my sensitivity whatsoever. I highly recommend giving it a try for anyone trying to whiten on a budget." —Mikael M. Melo

    Amazon / Via, BuzzFeed / Via

    The TubShroom fits in most drains. To clean it, just remove the hair, and then wipe it down with a paper towel or cleansing wipe.

    "I can't think of a more disgusting, stomach-turning chore than cleaning out a clogged drain. So when I spotted the TubShroom during some late-night perusing on Amazon, I ordered it. It’s so simple to install. You just pop it in the shower tub drain and you’re good to go.

    The result? Success! And it was much more SATISFYING than I ever thought possible! There aren’t any straggler hairs hanging around the drain anymore. All the hair is collected out of view! It takes approximately two seconds to clean. I just remove the hair with a piece of toilet paper and toss it in the garbage. LATER, GROSS HAIR CLUMP! LOSE MY NUMBER!" —Sarah Aspler

    25. A sheet of light-dimming stickers that are perfect for anyone who likes to sleep in absolute darkness. They make the glowy lights from all your gadgets less intense, so you can get your beauty sleep.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    "When it comes to sleeping, my motto is 'night's out, lights out.' All of them. My reaction to even the faintest of lights is very similar to a vampire being exposed to the sun: not cute. But I have a bunch of devices in my room that blink and glow during the night! My fan, my air purifier, my computer screen, and my air conditioning unit are just a few that I can list off the top of my head. Buying these light-dimming stickers was the best money I've spent in a while. I just popped them onto my devices and the lights were instantly duller. They come in a variety of different shapes and sizes, making it easy to find the perfect one for each device. I can still see that the lights are on, but they're not nearly as annoying." —Kaysey Davis
