    39 Things We've Tried (And Loved) That Are On Major Sale For Black Friday

    We swear by these at full price, but on sale = even better.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    Cyber Week, the week when almost every store has deals (more than you could ever conceivably look through in an entire lifetime), is *here*.

    We're wading through mountains of bargains for you and found some of the best deals in every category.

    FYI — deals can move quickly. We’ll do our best to keep this post and imagery as up-to-date as possible, but we can’t catch everything immediately. Check back throughout Cyber Week to see our latest updates as the deals change!

    So here are some of the products we *really* and *truly* love that are ALSO on sale today!

    1. A pair of Apple AirPods Pro for $90 off (we've reviewed the older gen, but reviewers LOVE the new ones too) with stunning sound-quality, great noise cancellation, and an *actually comfortable* fit.


    "Here's the main thing you need to know: the noise cancellation on the AirPods Pro is genuinely, alarmingly effective. The first time I put these on and toggled it into noise cancelling mode it was like the whole world fell away. Like, walking down the street I felt like Anne Hathaway in an early 2010s rom-com because I genuinely could not hear one thing on a busy crowded New York City street except pop music in my ears. And while it's a full mood that I appreciate while I'm out walking, it's gone from 'wow, neat!' to 'oh, cool, I can't exist without these' when it comes to working from home. They're also super comfy and stay put — and I am saying that as someone who wears them pretty much all through my waking hours. I take them on long, absurdly sweaty runs and they don't budge." —Emma Lord

    Get them from Amazon for $159.99 (originally $249).

    2. An Always Pan for 32% off designed to do the work of EIGHT pieces of regular old cookware. Whether you're already great at cooking or seem to burn everything, this is a great (and pretty) addition to any kitchen, thanks to the non-toxic nonstick surface that makes for very easy cleanup.

    Our Place, BuzzFeed / Maitland Quitmeyer

    It comes with a lockable lid, steamer basket, pouring spout, and a nesting spatula with a built-in rest.

    "Lemme walk you through why this is the best gift for yourself or basically anyone who has ever lifted a spatula. This gorgeous 10-inch pan actually does the work of eight kitchen tools: fry pan, sauté pan, steamer, skillet, saucier, saucepan, non-stick pan, spatula, and spoon rest. OK, OK, so yes, mostly it just does the job of A Regular Pan. But it has cool features! It has a spout on the side for easy pouring and releasing steam (simply spin the lid so the holes line up). The handle rests on the handle and fits neatly inside the pan, so no spoon rest is needed. It comes with a stainless steel steamer basket for easy steaming. It's just a nice, thoughtful pan in general that's worth the extra cash.

    It's made with high-quality materials, and the attention to detail really shows in the finished product. Sometimes I just hold mine and sigh over how nice it is! Sorry if that's lame, but it is the truth. I am in love with my pan. The pan sports non-toxic, nonstick ceramic coating made without potentially toxic materials (lead, cadmium, nanoparticles, etc.). It has an aluminum body for a fast, even heat. It's large, but (relatively) lightweight, so I always find it's the first pan I grab. The accompanying spatula is made with beechwood that's gentle on the nonstick coating but durable. And the best part? It's sooo easy to clean! The pan comes with a wimpy-looking natural sponge but it actually works. Even burnt, caked-on food kinda just slides off this thing. Seriously, only one swipe of the sponge needed! The one thing I will say is that the coating does come off easily, so keep it away metal utensils, be gentle when cleaning, and definitely don't put it in the oven." —Bek O'Connell

    Get it from Our Place for $99 (originally $145; available in six colors)

    Our Place is a POC-owned business based in Los Angeles. All of their boxes are packaged with biodegradable and recyclable materials, and the Always Pan is made in a female-owned factory in China.

    Our Place is offering up to $145 off in their biggest sale of the year.

    3. A splurge-worthy Samsung Frame 4K Smart TV for $300 off (one of the best prices on this TV *ever*) if you don't want to waste your precious wall space on just a television. When this bb is off you can set it to look like a photo or a piece of art — and it comes in a chic frame so no one will be the wiser.

    Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed,

    "This TV is honest and truly the best splurge I have ever made. It has massively upgraded the look in my living room. My husband loves the photography options and I love all the classical paintings – as someone who loves changing up my decor, being able to update the display images has been so fun. The quality is fantastic while watching movies and TV...but I'm pretty sure I love it as a piece of art in my home even more." —Mal Mower

    Get it from Amazon for $997.99+ (originally $1,297.99; available in two sizes).

    4. A classic T-shirt dress for 40-60% off because having a go-to dress you throw-on (and layer up or wear as-is depending on the weather) is key.

    Rachel Dunkel / BuzzFeed, Everlane

    "This T-shirt dress was the base of, like, 50% of my outfits last spring and summer and I'm ready to do it all again this year! The fabric's the perfect thickness to feel sturdy and, most importantly to me, not clingy, but it still feels super light. I often pair it with a cardigan, denim jacket, chore coat, or even a button-up or flannel — the options are endless! Never discontinue this dress, Everlane!" —Rachel Dunkel

    Get it from Everlane for $15 (originally $35; available in sizes XXS–XL and 5 colors).

    Everlane is offering up to 66% off select styles.

    5. Grande Cosmetics' lash serum for 30% off that, with a one-minute nightly application, can help your lashes grow to their full potential, looking longer and fuller in just a few weeks.

    A reviewer's before/after showing how much their lashes have grown

    I use this religiously and notice a huuuge difference. I have allergies and tend to rub my eyes, which isn't great for my lashes, but this serum seriously helps with fallout and helps my lashes look much longer — when I use this they grow long enough to brush my brow bone, which would never happen otherwise. At the end of last year, I tried a different lash product (after running out of Grande lash for a while because ::shrugs:: pandemic) and it did *nothing* after *weeks*of trying. After I went back on the Grande lash for a couple weeks, and my lashes got significantly longer. I won't ever stop using it. It just works, my friends." —Maitland Quitmeyer

    Promising review: "I really wish I would have taken 'before' pics. My hairdresser told me about this stuff and said 'it works so good I had to stop using it every night.' I thought to myself 'Oh yeah, lashes too long, no such thing' but I on my second tube and I'm going to start using every other night. My lashes are so long, and it's like I have a double row of lashes. My bottom lashes are thicker too. I rarely write reviews but wanted to share because it really really works." —Asc

    6. A Eufy robotic vacuum for 40% off sure to work hard while you just sit back and relax...picking up crumbs, pet hair, dust, and anything else that keeps your house from feeling fresh and clean.

    The thin design fits under furniture

    "This robot BFF has an infrared sensor to avoid obstacles in its bath and drop-sensing technology so it doesn't fall down steps. It comes with a remote control, charging base (it automatically recharges so it's always ready to clean), AC power adapter, cleaning tool, an extra set of high-performance filters, four side brushes, and five cable ties. I purchased it myself a couple weeks ago, and I'm already in love. 

    It's low enough to fit under furniture, and it's not super loud so I can even work in the same room as this lil' guy when he's on the move. Having this lil' sidekick to pick up the MANY, many hairs that seem to fall from my head every second of the day, errant crumbs, and the dust that accumulates at rapid speed is incredibly helpful between deep cleans. Not having to vacuum as often frees up my weekends for actual...weekend fun!" —Maitland Quitmeyer

    Get it from Amazon for $137.98 (originally $229.99).

    7. Glossier Solution for 20% off, an easy-to-use exfoliant chockfull of promising acids (AHA, BHA, and PHA, oh my!) that reduce acne and dark spots, brighten, improve skin tone and texture, unclog pores, exfoliate, and reduce signs of stress. Like, that's a lot of stuff.

    Glossier, BuzzFeed / AnaMaria Glavan

    "My skin is super dry in the winter and I absolutely swear by Thayers Witch Hazel toner — it helps keep my breakouts and redness at bay without drying out my skin any further. However, I have cystic breakouts around my chin area — especially once a month, if you know what I mean — and not even my beloved witch hazel could help with that. SO! I decided to slowly incorporate Glossier’s Solution into my skincare regimen.

    Last week, I was breaking out pretty badly when I decided to use this after washing my face. It comes with a whole pouch full of cotton rounds (#fancy) and I needed just one pump to cover my whole face (paying close attention to my problem areas, including around my chin and near my temples). The next morning, my skin definitely felt a little dry, but my pimples were practically gone. The overnight improvement was dramatic, and none of my spots were an angry shade of red like they usually are. While I think this product is a bit too drying to use every night if you have dry skin, using it twice a week is the perfect dose of 'pimple killer' for me! This is definitely a must-try product to keep breakouts at bay." —AnaMaria Glavan

    Get it from Glossier for $19.20 (originally $24)

    Glossier is offering 20% off everything, and up to 41% off exclusive sets.

    8. An air fryer for 36% off (from the makers of the INSTANT POT!!) so you can crisp up leftovers, make homemade versions of your favorite fried foods (without having to deal with hot oil), and more.

    Hannah Loewentheil / BuzzFeed

    "I'd been contemplating buying an air fryer for quite some time, but it wasn't until I found myself cooking every night with my family due to COVID-19 that I finally decided it was the right time to get one. Friends of mine were raving about their new Instant Vortex Plus 6-in-1 Air Fryer, so after reading similar feedback on Amazon, I decided it looked like a winner. And it happens to be made by the same company that makes the crowd-favorite Instant Pot. I figured I would be using this appliance primarily as air air fryer, but as an added bonus, it can also roast, broil, bake, re-heat, and dehydrate food.

    I've had this air fryer for about three weeks now, and I can honestly say it's become the hero of my kitchen. It preheats quickly, it's large enough to a good amount of food at once, it's easy to clean, and it makes food taste crispy on the outside and moist on the inside without any oil. I've been using my air fryer to make vegetables just about every night and it makes them taste so good. If you're cooking for kids, picky eaters, or you just don't get so excited about eating vegetables, the air fryer could be perfect for you. If you like chicken, the air fryer might change your life, and I don't mean that to be dramatic. The air fryer produces restaurant-quality chicken that tastes absurdly decadent, except there's no oil involved in the cooking — just air. We also tried making sesame chicken in the air fryer using boneless skinless chicken thighs. The sesame chicken tasted almost identical to my favorite Chinese takeout, and it had nothing to do with my cooking skills. Thanks to the air fryer, the chicken gets so crispy. I couldn't believe I made this at home!!" —Hannah Loewentheil

    Get it from Amazon for $89.95 (originally $139.95).

    9. A pair of Zella leggings for 25% off you'll want to *live* in, no matter what you're up to. They're super stretchy, moisture-wicking, no-slip in the waist, and just all-around amazing.

    BuzzFeed / Elena Garcia

    "The most important thing most of us can do right now is to stay at home. So, since this is the new normal. I thought maybe it would be a great time to tell you all about the leggings I've recently moved into for the foreseeable future — Zella's Live In High-Waisted Leggings. They're made of a super stretchy moisture-wicking fabric that never gets you too hot (which I imagine is important for all those people who will use them for working out, I am not one of those people). They also have a fitted no-slip waistband that does not roll down for anything! I've never had to do the tug and pull dance with these bad boys.

    I literally can't get enough of them! They're just SO comfy! I wear them to do everything — take selfies in the mirror, feed my neighbor's goats, lay on the sofa for 18 hours...everything. The price point does make them a bit of an investment ($59 full price) but they really do stand the test of time — I'm not joking when I say I literally wear these EVERY. DAY. They haven't stretched out at all and during the one day a week I take them off, they wash well and don't fade or pill." —Elena Garcia

    Get them from Nordstrom for $44.25 (originally $59; available in sizes XXS-XL and 1X-3X not on sale).

    Nordstrom is offering up to 50% off select items.

    10. A satin scrunchie for 40% off ranging in sizes from mini to XL so you can choose the size of your statement (while keeping you hair back and protected).

    Jane Dottie Vintage

    Enter promo code BF40.

    "Giant scrunchies are the accessory I never knew I needed. I have big, curly Type 3 hair and I'm constantly putting it up and taking it down throughout the day. These adorable scrunchies make throwing my hair up in a messy bun so much more fun. The satin ones are especially great for being gentle on your hair. You can also find the organza rainbow scrunchie I'm wearing in the above photo or the cotton cow print on their site as well." —Kayla Boyd

    Get it from Jane Dottie Vintage for $12+ (available in five sizes).

    11. *THE* Amazon Coat for 46% off, a chicly oversized parka that'll keep you truly toasty warm — and make everyone think you splurged big time. Mega style, mega warmth, and pockets for days? Yeah this is my new fave winter coat.

    BuzzFeed / Maitland Quitmeyer

    "I have spent a couple years in the city without a 'real" puffy coat — I usually buy (warm!) fashionable coats and just hide in a Columbia cold-weather rain jacket if the weather gets really bad. But I've wanted this Orolay down coat (often called THE Amazon coat) for a while so when it went 30% off on Prime Day, I snagged the chance to get it. It's weirdly fashionable (like...a lot of people in New York own this jacket) and WOW it's incredibly warm. While it doesn't get *that* that cold in New York City (teens and 20s is about how cold it gets, barring a polar vortex — which isn't bad to someone who lived in Minnesota for five years) — we New Yorkers spend a LOT of time outside in the winter. When you walk to the train, wait on the freezing platform, walk to the grocery store etc. it's more time than usual out in the cold — and let me tell you the wind through the buildings and chill off the concrete can be BRUTAL. I love to walk about four miles home from work when I have the time — even in the winter — and I know this will keep me cozy every step of the way.

    This coat HAS IT ALL! It's puffy and super-insulated but not *giant* and covers the butt (very key when you're wearing thin leggings on the bottom all winter — the wind goes right through 'em). The VERY generously sized hood has a sherpa lining for extra toastiness. I very rarely, if ever, find jackets with hoods that actually go all the way over my head (and hair) to shelter my face from the elements, so that's a HUGE PLUS for me. It has tons and tons of pockets — zipper pockets to stash stuff in so you don't need a purse, plus size open pockets to keep your hands toasty on a walk. And it's just really darn cute! I love the green color and the grosgrain zipper pulls to add a little extra chicness.

    I wanted an oversized look, so for reference, I wear a size 2 in most things and I got the small. To me, it's perfect! I've taken it for a spin on unusually cold November days (windchill in the teens), on post-snow mornings, and I know it's going to keep me super warm, no matter how the freezing New York winds blow." —Maitland Quitmeyer

    Get it from Amazon for $88.49 (originally $159.99; available in sizes XXS–5X and nine colors).

    12. A gift subscription to Atlas Coffee Club for up to $55 off. Your giftee will get beans (either a half bag, bag, or double bag) per month, each from a different region, with info about the tasting profile, brewing recommendations, and a postcard about that place!

    The box, with the bags of beans and info postcards
    Bek O'Connell / BuzzFeed

    We're learning *and* we're caffeinating — it's a win-win!

    "Atlas Coffee Club mails the coffee right to you, so now I have to face my fears and actually drink the stuff again (if only so I can feel awake before 12 p.m. and enjoy an occasional cone of coffee ice cream). I decided to go with dark-roast whole beans because I don't know what I'm doing and that's what my roommates wanted.

    First of all, coffee opinions aside, this is the cutest packaging of all time. I was shipped bags from Peru and Colombia, and each was in a vibrant, patterned bag that had me instantly grabbing my phone to snap some pictures. The delivery even came with a handwritten Peru postcard. Already, I'm charmed.

    The coffee itself was phenomenal! The amazing smell hits you as soon as you open the box. My roommates and I have varying levels of snobbery when it comes to coffee. For example, I'm cool with some Dunkin' Donuts iced coffee, but one of my roommates only buys his coffee from a fancy beanery in Williamsburg. Despite our different palates, we all loved and raved about Atlas's coffee. We used an electric grinder and tried making it with both a normal coffee maker and a French press. The Colombian coffee was very smooth and chocolatey, with an almost creamy texture even when taken black. The Peruvian coffee was more bitter and fruity, but also exceptional.

    I think this is a great purchase for coffee fans and an even better gift thanks to the level of personal care put into each package. I feel like lots of subscription services are a rip-off, but this one definitely is worth it!" —Bek O'Connell

    Get a 3-, 6-, or 12- month subscription from Atlas Coffee starting at $45 (originally $60) and ranging up to $184 (originally $240).

    13. Biossance 100% Squalane Oil for 30% off, which hydrates your skin incredibly well with a plant-based formula that locks in the moisture your skin needs — and also can help reduce redness.

    The oil is paraben-free, cruelty-free, fragrance-free, and vegan.

    "This is the stuff of dreams, people! I put it on my face at night after serum and before my night cream, and wake up with bouncy, bright skin. The first time I used it, I had overnight results. I am constantly yelling about this product to everyone who will listen; I even convinced my dermatologist to try it." —Rebecca O'Connell, BuzzFeed Editor

    Rachel Dunkel / BuzzFeed

    Enter code OHJOY at checkout.

    "Random canvas totes may come and go, but nothing beats having a permanent, go-to bag. I've had this since college when I used it to carry my heavy load of books, my laptop, and other English major paraphernalia, but it's transitioned flawlessly into my adult life where — OK — I still use it to carry books and my computer. The leather is getting a lovely patina and the structure of the bag is as strong as the day I got it. It has one zippered interior pocket which is perfect for keys, cards, or any other tiny necessities. I received this as a gift, so I can confirm that it makes a good one! My bag is even monogrammed, which made the gift all the more special. (You can add monogramming to almost any Madewell leather or denim item for $10 or for free if you're a Madewell Insider!) If you can't spring for this wondrous tote now, I absolutely recommend putting it on your wishlist." —Rachel Dunkel

    15. A Foreo Luna Mini 2 for 30% off, a silicone face-cleansing brush designed to totally remove makeup, dirt, and oil, AAAAND gently exfoliate your skin in just 60 seconds (I know, it's a gamechanger). It's like a quick little baby facial every day.

    ^That's me! I love this handy lil' device SO much. Check out my in-depth review for all the deets!

    Promising review: "I really regretted this purchase at first, seemed like it was just a vibrator, the shape was weird considering the angles of a face, the two different sides felt the same. BUT THEN....... I dried my face with a white towel and there was not a speck of makeup left on the towel and I didn't have a drop of mascara raccoon eye look left on my face. This is the cleanest my face has ever been. I will keep using it" —hine0108

    16. A set of Parachute percale sheets for 20% off made of 100% Egyptian cotton for a lightweight and cool, breathable yet unbelievably soft and cozy feel. Sounds like a paradox, but they're like magic.

    BuzzFeed, Parachute

    "I switched from a set of very old, pilling sheets to these babies, and.......the difference could not be larger. If you're on the market for new sheets, look no further. But if you're worried about wanting to do *everything* from bed, these might not be for you because sometimes I want to spend all day in these. These sheets are SO SOFT, I just want to burrow into them. They wash up beautifully, and I have never loved being in bed more (and...I already loved being in bed). I can honestly say I've never slept in more comfortable sheets. You know the feeling of freshly shaved legs and clean sheets??? Imagine that times a thousand in Parachute sheets." —Maitland Quitmeyer

It has a magnetic tension system to up the difficulty, and handy features on the screen so you can track their time, speed, distance, and more!

    The silvery bike, with text "Men's Health editor's choice" larger seat cushion, 300 pound extended weight capacity

    "I bought this bike just as the pandemic was starting last spring, and it was a *great* choice. I put it together in nooooo time flat, with the help of a handy YouTube video (as suggested by one of the reviewers). And the fold-up size is great, but the bike is sturdy and has great features for the price! I love the cushioned seat, which is muuuuuch comfier than most exercise bike seats I've sat on. My parents ended up getting one after I did, and they are PEDALING away too! If I angle my lap desk right, I can even work on it!" —Maitland Quitmeyer

    18. Levi's ribcage straight jeans for 40% off that come up to — as the name would imply — your ribcage. These are ideal for anyone who prefers truly high-waisted denim. None of that "comes up underneath my belly button" nonsense.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed, Levi's

    The 40% off is reflected at checkout.

    "I am an exclusively high-waisted bottoms person. No ifs, ands, or but(t)s about it, I refuse to wear anything else. I have some high-waisted jeans I love, but both pairs really just come up to my belly button, and it'll sometimes pop on out if I'm wearing a crop top. No biggie, but I was looking for a pair that came up FURTHER. So I went into Levi's last year and tried on just about every "high rise" pair in the store. Seriously. And these straight Ribcage jeans were just the ticket. Stiff enough to look like jeans instead of jeggings, a slight crop and straight hem at the bottom to differentiate from my skinny jeans, and a SUPER HIGH rise. Like my belly button is a full inch below the top of the jeans. It takes me a minute to get into them and button the button-fly, but that's what ensures a nice fit for my waist-to-hip ratio, which *usually* results in the dreaded WAIST GAP. I love the color and the level of distressing (aka not much), and they make me feel like a ~cool girl~ when I really just about never feel like one. If you're looking for super high waisted jeans that still...feel like jeans, I 100% recommend these." —Maitland Quitmeyer

    Get them from Levi's for $58.80+ (originally $98, available in sizes 24-32, two lengths, and 11 colors).

    19. A MYX Fitness spin bike for $250 off (plus free shipping & assembly) that'll help you get the best workout of your life without having to leave your house. Their workout programs even ~stretch~ beyond just spin, so you can change it up throughout the week.

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed, MYX Fitness

    "Ever since life drastically changed a couple years ago, I have desperately been wanting a spin bike in my house. When the pandemic hit, my job moved remote and it's been that way ever since. Now so much of my day-to-day is lived at home, and that includes my workout routine. I wanted a piece of equipment that challenged me, but also provided other workout options. Well — ding, ding ding, folks — we have a winner! I loooooove this bike. The screen is bigger than I imagined, which really makes it feel like you're in a class, and the programs are c-h-a-l-l-e-n-g-i-n-g. The first class I did was only 20 minutes, and it was the best burn I've felt in a long time. A lot of my at-home classes are tough, but not like this, and I know that's truly something you get with a spin bike. But! When I am ready to do something else, I have so many other options. The bike even comes with weight set, which adds some challenge to their workout classes. Everything you get with MYX II Plus is worth its weight in gold, so if you've been considering a bike, MYX is a *great* option!" —Kayla Suazo

    Get the MYX II Plus bike from MYX Fitness for $1,350 (originally $1600; includes the bike, 21.5-inch screen, six-piece weight set, two mats, foam roller, and resistance band), or the MYX II for $1,150 (originally $1400; includes the bike and screen).

    20. An Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K (we've reviewed the previous gen, but this one's 50% faster!) for 50% off you can simply plug into your existing TV and stream all the shows, movies, and music you want at the push of a button.

And with this gen, you can control your TV and sound bar right from the remote too, and it even has preset buttons to open your favorite apps in one click.

    "Getting it set up and ready to go is a DREAM. My TV is mounted on the wall in my small NYC bedroom, and I just had to plug the streaming device into the back of the TV, then into the wall, and connect it to Wi-Fi. It's so small and lightweight that it's just been hanging out there for about two years now and it's never fallen out or had any issues at all. The picture is always great and the remote works fast." —Kayla Boyd

    "When I say that this has changed my life, I mean it. Truly, my boyfriend and I should be the next spokesperson for Tushy, because we've RAVED about it to anyone who is wiling to listen us talk about our butts. The amount of toilet paper we've saved since we started using this just a couple months ago...unfathomable. Not only is it great for the environment, it's great for the bum, too.

    "I'm sipping on a delicious Nespresso coffee made in my VertuoPlus RIGHT NOW as I look through Black Friday deals. Being able to literally pop in a capsule and press a button = just the right amount of effort for my pre-caffeine morning brain. I couldn't recommend it more, and I truly use it almost Every Single Day — the double espresso pods are my favorite for making at-home lattes. 10/10 recommend." —Maitland Quitmeyer

    23. A Baby Foot exfoliating peel for 24% off that'll make dead, dry, rough foot skin a distant memory. Just pop the mitts on your feet, sit with them on for an hour, then take 'em off and live your life. A few days later you can just sit back and watch your dead, dry skin fall right off.

    A reviewer's feet mid-peel

    "You've *no doubt* read about Baby Foot on BuzzFeed dot com the website before (and seen some amazing shedding photos from reviewers all over). Well, gentle reader, allow me to add my voice to the chorus of satisfied customers. I am an aggressive walker and don't always wear the most ~sensible shoes~. I lotion regularly, blah blah blah, but all that does is really just soften — not remove — the hardened skin that's been building up for ages. So last year while working from home, I decided to take my own advice and give Baby Foot a try. And boy oh boy did it work. Years' of calluses peeled away, and my lotion routine got *more* effective for daily maintenance. So a few weeks ago I decided to do it again before at-home pedicure and sandal season commences. I was already starting with softer feet thanks to last year's Baby Foot, but winter dryness and another layer of calluses was ready to go.

    Here's how you use it: Cut open the top of the booties (they're like a loosely foot-shaped bag full of exfoliating goo), pop them on your feet, and sit with them on for an hour. Then just wash your feet off well and live your life. A few days later (5–7 days, but it varies depending on your skin and whether you soak your feet!) you can just sit back and watch your dead, dry skin fall right off. Yes you *will* be vacuuming up a lot of dead skin pieces during the shedding process. But you'll also reveal softer, smoother feet with no more cracked, dry heels or super thick calluses." —Maitland Quitmeyer

    24. A pair of Powerbeats headphones for 40% off so you can work out, jam out, or comfortably all day listening to your favorite tunes — without having to worry about them falling out or dying on you.

    BuzzFeed / Emma McAnaw

    "I am not a tech-savvy person by any means. I needed help the other day just to make sense of a new electric can opener. Needless to say, I had still been using cheap drugstore headphones up until recently (I lost my included Apple headphones many moons ago). I decided I needed wireless headphones for multiple reasons: a) regular headphones are annoying to use at the gym, especially while running, and b) I was starting to waste a lot of money by replacing cheap headphones over and over again, which inevitably break within four months. Not to mention, untangling wires were starting to take years off my life.

    These Beats headphones have been a real game-changer for me. The sound quality is SO MUCH better than my cheap headphones, which has actually really improved my experience at the gym. I find it easier to stay motivated now that my music is *crystal clear* (and I can't hear myself wheezing on the treadmill). I was worried it would be hard to connect their Bluetooth settings to my phone and computer (again...I can't handle can openers), but the whole process is super self-explanatory. And they stay connected for pretty long distances — I can walk away from my phone to the other side of the room without interrupting my music.

    They can hold a charge for a pretty long time, as long you always store them in their charging case. I usually use them for a full work day without needing to re-charge them. Plus, they're really comfy in my ears and never fall out, thanks to their clever hook design (if you have comfort issues with Apple headphones, these will probably feel better)! My ears never feel sore or need a break from them — their lining is super soft and almost moldable. If you're a headphones connoisseur and value sound quality, I've been really impressed (I'm no expert, but a lot of people agree!). They're definitely a splurge, but IMO, they're worth it!" —Emma McAnaw

    25. A Lodge pre-seasoned cast-iron skillet for 33% off so you can get a great sear on a steak, transfer dishes right from the stove to the oven, and (of course) make a giant skillet cookie.

    the black skillet with salmon asparagus

    "This is the cast-iron I have, and it pretty much just lives on my stovetop because I use it so much. While cast irons are most well-known for getting a good sear on meat, it's just as — if not more — amazing at crisping up veggies to perfection. To clean, simply hand wash (I usually opt for no soap, but you do you) and rub with vegetable oil to keep it nice and seasoned." —Rachel Dunkel

    26. A set of Pact waffle bath towels for 40% off that are incredibly soft and absorbent, but also super quick drying so you can dry off in comfort, but not have to deal with that awful towel stink.

    BuzzFeed / Maitland Quitmeyer

    "Towels aren't something I've cared all that much about before. I knew my cheap Target ones could be better, and they'd definitely gotten less absorbent and less soft but there wasn't much I was gonna do about it. Then I got these Pact towels. And I'm in love with them — the upgrade was long overdue! These towels are my home now. I got a set with bath *sheets* instead of towels (aka they are giant and you can really wrap yourself cozily in them), which I highly recommend. Now let me get into the specifics:

    They're made of organic cotton in a beyond cuddly waffle texture that is both very soft to the touch, but also thick-thin enough to dry very speedily. I towel off after the shower, and then by the next time I've gone into my's dry! What is this magic?! They absorb beautifully, so I've finally been able to follow the skincare tip of gently patting your face dry instead of rubbing it with a towel. They wash up beautifully and don't take FOR -E-EVER (::The Sandlot voice::) to dry in the dryer, either. And did I mention how SOFT they are?!" —Maitland Quitmeyer

    Get a set of six towels (two bath sheets, two hand towels, and two washcloths) from Pact for $84 (originally $140; available in five colors, and in a bath *towel* set for $72, originally $120).

    27. Ultralip (Glossier's newest lip prouduct) for 20% off, which has the same weightless comfort of Generation G, plus a hint of shine and buildable coverage for the perfect everyday look. Glossier calls it the "cashmere sweatpants of lipstick" and...yes!

    BuzzFeed / Maitland, Glossier

    "Altho I am a matte lipstick enthusiast, I've enjoyed the recent gloss resurgence as a nice break! So when Glossier released their newest lip product, Ultralip, which combines the comfort of a balm, the buildable color of a tint, and the fine of a gloss, I haven't been able to stop wearing them. If you've been looking for sheer-tinted, hydrating, *comfortable* lip colors to perk up your face but also go with...lots of loungewear, these new Glossier lip colors are the ticket. They feel weightless (even comfier than Generation G??) and provide a flush of buildable color — and a bit of shine — that looks fresh. I have three shades (a reddish, a pinkish, and a berryish) and they're all gorgeously wearable dressed up or down." —Maitland Quitmeyer

    28. A Girlfriend Collective Paloma bra for 30% off designed with a band across the bottom for extra support you need in any medium-impact workouts. Plus, it's so cute, you may just want to wear it even if you're not working out.

    Girlfriend Collective, Abby Kass / BuzzFeed

    "I've tried a number of different bras from this brand, but this one is my tried-and-true favorite. It's simple yet highly effective. I can wear it for both cardio and weight lifting classes and feel comfortable the entire time. Plus, it's super cute and the longer length really does add some extra support. It's so easy to grab with the matching leggings and be ready for my workout in seconds. I will shout my love for Girlfriend Collective from the mountain tops because it really is that great. Seriously, go get yourself this bra." —Abby Kass

    "When I first heard about Book of the Month Club, I was skeptical. I can figure out what to read on my own, tyvm! But it's more than just 'let this company send you a random book.' You get to pick one of five books each month (or skip a month if nothing calls to you) and then you get a nice hardcover book in the mail. My favorite so far has been Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo: a fantasy thriller that imagines what it would be like if Yale's secret societies actually dabbled in black magic. I devoured it in almost one sitting. If you love ghosts, a reluctant Scooby gang, and a scathing critique of Ivy League classism, I highly recommend this engrossing read." —Bek O'Connell

    30. An extra-durable duck-shaped dog toy for 53% off and unlike other toys that get shredded in days (OK, hours), this adorable bb will last months, at least.

    AnaMaria Glavan / BuzzFeed

    "My French Bulldog is extremely spoiled and gets new toys all the damn time — my sister will, I’m not kidding, raid the rows of TJ Maxx once a week for a new seasonally appropriate squeaker. There’s currently a mangled pastel purple bunny sitting in the garbage because, yep, he chewed right through it in a day… which brings me to my point! Chew toys can cost anywhere from $10–$14 a pop and last maybe three days with minimal play. My dog sleeps for 18 hours in a 24-hour cycle so it mystifies me that he manages to go through them so quickly. But a few months ago, I found this very plain yellow duck toy on Amazon that had over 14,000 reviews with buyers claiming it could take a lot of wear and tear. I thought, my doggo deserves the best so let’s try it out.

    Folks! This duck is woven with Valyrian steel! I literally purchased this on Nov. 24, 2020 (and I’m writing this it is March 25, 2021) and it’s STILL GOING STRONG. It has not torn, ripped, there is no toy entrail fluff scattered throughout our living room.. nada. It’s still perfectly intact and Rockie generally prefers this toy over any other one in his ever-changing arsenal. It’s also perfect for his medium frame but I can see it being equally as ideal for smaller dogs because it’s lightweight, despite being on the larger side. My dog is also strange in that he prefers sleeping on this random blanket in the corner than in his bed and sometimes he’ll drag the duck with him and lay next to it and I eyes fill with tears when I think about how adorable that is.

    The best part is that the toy costs less than $10. Considering the quality, you’d expect it to cost *way* more considering that I haven’t had to replace it in the four months of me owning it. And again, I want to stress — my dog typically shreds through toys in less than a week, so to have one last 15x longer?! It’s pretty sweet. I also want to point out that the squeaker isn't obnoxiously loud which is pure bliss." —AnaMaria Glavan

    Fly By Jing

    "I got this sauce as a gift, and I have been obsessed ever since I tried it. It combines the most prized Sichuan peppercorns with fragrant dried chilies, fermented black beans, garlic, shallots and more for a numbing, umami-rich flavor that has enhanced truly everything I've tried it on — without overpowering the other flavors. I've been struggling to find the right sauce to take my home-cooked dishes to the next level, and let me tell you, this is it! Plus, the packaging is super cute and thoughtful, and mine even came with a beautiful little zine that includes a breakdown of the ingredients, some amazing recipe ideas, and more!" —Jonathan Mazzei

    "I finally did it — after eyeing these babies for months I caved and splurged on the Spanx faux leather leggings. I have seen COUNTLESS Instagram influencers boast about how wonderful and versatile they are, but I honestly didn't believe them until I tried them for myself. They are very stretchy, not too tight and overall have a nice texture to them. I'll definitely be pairing them with oversized sweaters all winter but can also see myself wearing them with T-shirts and denim jackets when the weather warms up again. For reference, I'm about 130 pounds and ordered a medium. They're the appropriate amount of *snug* on top and the length is great. My only complaints would be, as with most high waisted leggings, they tend to fold over a touch when I sit down and they don't photograph super leathery. But, hey, we can't have it all. I look forward to wearing these time and time again and feel good about investing in a pricier pair. Just don't tell my husband what they cost, OK?" —Heather Braga

    "Folks, one of my favorite quarantine purchases has been this godsend from Revlon. I've never been much of a blow-dryer myself — I never had the patience, energy, or the technique for that matter. But then in swoops this two-in-one tool to give my hair the glam of Jackie O in just about 20 minutes. I have short, very thick, wavy locks and I've never enjoyed seeing a transformation quite like I'm able to achieve with this styler. Giving myself a quick, ~salon-worthy~ blow out for Monday morning meetings has been my new way to feel a little less disheveled for the day." —Jasmin Sandal

    35. A UV phone sanitizer for 40% off for folks who shudder at the thought of going about their day as if they weren't just clutching a slippery germ brick for hours on end. Clutch that subway pole without fear!

    Anna Kopsky / BuzzFeed

    "I had absolutely NO idea that there was such a thing as UV sanitizing until my friend gave this PhoneSoap 3 to me as a present. I actually had no idea what this was for a few minutes. After looking into it I learned it’s 99.99% effective for sanitizing phones and keys. It kills 99.99% of bacteria with UV-C lighting, which is also referred to as 'germicidal' lighting (according to the FDA. Wild?!) I'd been using up all of my Clorox wipes to clean my phone so I figured I'd give it a try.

    Now the first thing I do whenever I come back from a shopping trip or walk is put my phone and keys in here immediately. It’s like throwing my phone and keys in a little countertop washing machine. It also only takes like 10 minutes to do its thing. It has 3,000+ 5-star ratings on the brand’s website (and 2,000+ on Amazon), and it is a truly vital product that I always use every single time I bring my phone or keys outside of the apartment.” —Anna Kopsky

Between this style and their crossover pair, I've been wearing mostly these "to work" for 12 months. I own multiple black pairs and love that they come in short lengths! A game-changer for me!

    I find both walking and jogging on the Treadly 2 Pro so easy and enjoyable. Having this treadmill is great, because I can exercise without having to go outside (I live in upstate NY where it's really cold outside) or move furniture around my apartment. It doesn't even matter that it "only" goes up to a jogging speed, I *still* feel sweaty after spending time on it." —Genevieve Scarano
