    1. A mold & mildew removing gel, because you don't need to get your whole shower redone when this is in your life. Just squeeze out and let this non-drip gel work its magic overnight — NO s c r u b b i n g.

    A reviewer's before/after of black mold on bathroom tile grout being removed
    amazon.com

    It clings to tile, meaning it'll STAY PUT, killing mold & mildew and keeping it from reappearing later down the road.

    Promising review: "Didn’t think it would work, but it DID with no scrubbing!! My husband didn’t think our grout was originally white, but I knew better. I put this on before bed on a section of grout in the shower, and woke up to gorgeous and bright white, no scrubbing at all the next morning. Just rinse it off. Absolutely buying another bottle. It wasn’t quite enough for my entire shower, but to be fair, we have a lot of small tiles. I think two bottles will get the whole shower floor. Bravo on a great product." —thekuan

    2. A few sheets of LED-dimming stickers to finally keep those pesky router, TV, clock, and other electronic lights from ruining your ~room of complete darkness~.

    A graphic showing the sheet of different size stickers and a before/after of a router with the lights blacked out
    Amazon

    They dim 50-80% of the light, so you can still tell that your devices are still actually *on* and functioning. You can always double them up to completely block out the light source if you'd like (many reviewers do this) or buy the stronger **full black-out** edition!

    Promising review: "This is the best thing you never knew you needed. I own a digital clock with the numbers displayed in red LED light, and every night I've blocked the light with a cover so it doesn't shine in my eyes as I sleep. Silly I know, but I like my room pitch black and cave-like. On a whim I bought this product. OH MY GOD! Game-changer!! For the first night EVER I didn't have to cover the clock display before I went to bed!! I had no idea how big a difference this little dimmer could make, but I'm more than pleased with the result. I can still see the time display just fine, but now my room is a happy cave! Some commenters argue you could get the same effect using electrical tape, regular tape covered in sharpie, etc, but true to the name of these products if you're looking for something to DIM, then this is for you. Also the product is easy to remove and doesn't leave a sticky residue at all, which can't be said for most tapes. I did notice a slight lag in response when I covered my TV LED sensor, so if you're trying to block something that actually senses inputs I would maybe not suggest this. Other than that, excellent product!" —Amazon Customer

    Get a sheet of over 100 dimming stickers (in multiple sizes and shapes) from Amazon for $6.49.

    3. An ingeniously designed grease bag capable of holding 32 ounces (!!) of leftover grease so you *don't* end up pouring it down the sink and dealing with clogged pipes later on. And it ~encapsulates~ the grease, meaning no leaking in the trash.

    Grease Bags

    And yes, you may have seen this Black woman-owned product on Shark Tank! Just toss it in your trash or municipal compost bin when you're all set.

    Get a single bag from Grease Bags for $13.99 or Amazon for $13.99 or a set of three from Grease Bags for $24.99.

    4. A pack of Avarelle pimple patches formulated with tea tree oil and calendula oil (to heal and shrink zits faster overnight). AND they come in two sizes — classic circular patches & large, square patches so you can easily treat and shrink clusters of pimples all at once.

    A reviewer's hand in two photos: on the left holding the large square patch with absorbed pus all over, and on the right holding two smaller round patches with absorbed pus
    amazon.com

    A lot of reviewers who have also tried Cosrx and Nexcare patches prefer these!

    Promising review: "I’ve tried so many brands of pimple spots, and these are hands-down the best on the market. I’m a performer at Walt Disney World, and a clear complexion is required. Last night, I put these on a few acne problems (a small cyst, a Whitehead, and a pimple I shouldn’t have picked and has been a bump for about three weeks now.) 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 also ideal, because it allows you to conveniently and easily peel the stickers off without stretching them out or folding them back on 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

    5. A plant-based, paraben-free shampoo so you can feel good about *finally* washing caked-on foundation out of your favorite tools without irritating sensitive skin or leaving behind residue. The formula'll even leave the bristles soft and conditioned.

    amazon.com

    AND it's cruelty-free and the bottle is made from recycled plastic. I use this on my brushes and beauty blenders and it just *really* works.

    Promising review: "This is the best brush shampoo I've ever used. I've used brush shampoos from high-end/luxury lines, too, and they did not work as well as this. First and most importantly for me, there is no scent! I absolutely hate when companies put heavy perfume in products that end up touching or going near the face. When washing brushes with shampoo that is heavily perfumed, that just ends up irritating my sinuses whenever I'm using the brushes to apply makeup. So awful. This is not like that at all, so I can use my makeup brushes without having sinus/allergy trouble. It cleans extremely well! No more going over and over again like with using other makeup brush shampoos. A little goes a long way, too, so it is extremely economical. The value is awesome. I highly recommend this brush shampoo and will continue purchasing it." —L.L.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    6. A borderline miraculous shoe-cleaning kit to erase the damage of winter weather or spring mud from your favorite kicks, whether they're leather, nubuck, suede, canvas, vinyl etc.

    A reviewer's pair of sneakers: one with very dirty soles and sides and the other looking basically brand new white
    amazon.com

    Just add on a little bit of the concentrated cleaner and water to the included brush and scrub away — the blend of saddle soap, oils, and conditioners will gently banish dirt, grime, and even grease and grass stains.

    Promising review: "It works great! I was a little unclear on what exactly I could use this shoe cleaner on when I ordered it, but I trusted the reviews and went for it. Turns out, this shoe cleaner works on just about anything. I cleaned up all my daughter's outgrown shoes to get them ready for consignment, and this stuff cleaned the whole lot! It worked on everything from Crocs and jellies to Uggs and Birkenstocks. I still can't figure out how something so powerful when cleaning canvas and rubber could somehow melt into suede and leather without leaving a trace. They should call it Pink Mystery Shoe Cleaner, if you ask me. I still have 95% of the bottle left, by the way. I definitely think I got my money's worth! Nice that they threw in the brush, too." —Beth C.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    7. A stainless-steel tongue cleaner that'll make halitosis a distant memory. You won't even know what kind of bad breath-causing gunk is on your tongue until you see the results for yourself!

    amazon.com

    The curved stainless-steel will feel smooth against your tongue, removing bacteria without causing irritation.

    Promising review: "Besides its obvious purpose, this item is really fun to use! I also like the consequences; I get to see the 'stuff' on the metal piece when I scrape it which tells me I'm taking crap off my tongue. And then my tongue also feels scraped, which makes me feel like I did something more than just some kind of toothpaste or mouthwash to generally keep my mouth clean (which hasn't worked before). I think the feeling of having done something specific to keep your mouth clean is an important aspect of having confidence in your breath. After having bad breath for a while, no matter whether my mouth is clean or not, I shy away from talking directly at people. But this helps remove some of my doubts and act like a normal human being again."Ashley

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98.

    8. A pack of anti-vibration pads, because laundry day is a chore enough without the rattling of the machines ruining your simultaneous Netflix binge.

    amazon.com

    They're universal in size to work with most machines too!

    Promising review: "I live in a New York City apartment on the fourth floor, I recently bought an LG all in one washer and dryer combo. I love the machine, however, when the spin cycle starts my apartment sounds and feels like either an earthquake or living on a rocket launch pad. I was confident that if I continued to use this machine it will eventually fall through the ceiling and on my neighbor 's head. I purchased a vibration pad from home depot but the earthquake continued. This product saved me from losing my apartment and possibly a murder rap, the vibration was reduced by 95%. I can now wash knowing my laundry and the rest of the world is safe." —Amazon Customer

    9. An anti-fogging spray to keep your glasses crystal clear while you stay Masked-Up. One quick spritz, let it sit and dry on your lenses, and you're good to go!

    A reviewer in a mask and glasses with no fogging, and holding the spray bottle
    amazon.com

    While many, many reviewers have found this product helpful, there are a few things to keep in mind! It's meant for non antireflective–coated lenses, and you need to apply the right way. Spray a bit on *both* sides of your lenses, then use your fingers to rub it in (across the full surface of the lens). Let it sit for 60 seconds, then wipe with a soft, dry cloth. Then you're good to go, so get ready to break out 🎵I can see cleeearrrly now! 🎵

    Promising review: "Like just about everyone with glasses, mine kept fogging up while wearing a COVID mask. I was looking to find something that would help with this and this product was perfect. You still get a tiny bit of fogging as you breathe out, but it instantly clears. This is a game-changer. I ordered another bottle immediately for my glass-wearing child." —zork2112

    Get it from Amazon for $10.55.

    10. A two-pack of mint-flavored teeth whitening pens you can just brush on and remove those deep-set coffee, tea, and wine stains — without all the hassle of those trays or strips.

    A reviewer's teeth in a before/after: yellower on top and whiter on the bottom
    amazon.com

    Just twist the bottom, and paint onto your teeth. Each pen has 20 uses, and you can see how much you've used through the handy transparent tube!

    Promising review: "I always worry whether this stuff will actually work, look good, be easy to use, taste decent, be safe for my teeth... and this stuff has it all and I'm more than impressed! This photo is just after TWO uses!! Love this product!" —Lil Mama Mindy

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $16.99.

    11. A pack of waterproof blister bandages that are thick enough to protect and prevent blisters (like moleskin), but also made of hydrocolloid to treat any existing blisters while you wear 'em.

    The packet of bandages with the three sizes: long and narrow, round with side strips, and oval
    Amazon

    On a family trip to Rome in 2019, my dad brought new shoes (???? terrible idea!!) and got really bad blisters. Luckily his Virgo daughter had these bbs along and enabled him to walk in much more comfort until they healed.

    Promising review: "Great bandages! These are easy to use and so soft. They stayed on during a shower which impressed me as well. They are the perfect size and so comfortable. I also appreciated the fact that they didn't come off in my shoe which is always a problem for me! Love the little case for them which I can easily throw in my purse. Great blister bandages!" —CTSmith

    Get a pack of 12 (three different sizes) from Amazon for $12.99.

    12. Essence's Lash Princess mascara, which over *100,000* five-star reviewers swear by for dramatic length and volume *without* clumps, thanks to the flake- and gob-free formula and cone-shaped brush.

    A reviewer's lashes before mascara, after one layer, and after two layers, with dramatic length and volume after
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "After using Lights, Camera, Lashes by Tarte ($23) for the past year, I got tired of breaking the bank over mascara. My sister suggested Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect and I IMMEDIATELY fell in love. It provides dramatic length and great volume. I can honestly say I can’t stop looking at my eyelashes in the mirror every single day because of how awesome they look. Also, it is very long wearing. I go from an eight-hour work day right to the gym and sweat like crazy...and this stuff doesn’t budge! I love it!!" —Carrie E. Miller

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    13. A reusable Revlon oil-absorbing roller stick with a ball made of volcanic stone that sucks the excess shine right off your face. Just pop it out and give it a wash once in a while and you can reuse it over and over and over again!

    Promising reviews: "Best purchase i have ever made. Oily skin type ppl definitely need this. Life changing." —Estefania Barros

    "This... this! I don't know what sort of sorcery this is, but this thing totally works, and it's freaking me out! I tested it by standing outside for a few mins (I live in the south, very humid) and then came back inside and rolled it along my nose. Sucked that oil right up!! I cannot believe I have been wasting money on blotting paper when this was out there (and reusable)! Totally buying some for my sister and friends. If you're on the fence about it, JUST BUY IT!" —Stellar

    14. A pair of almost-too-pretty lace Bandelettes, aka spandex-nylon blend anti-chafing bands guaranteed to stay in place all day long and keep friction at bay so you can strut your stuff irritation-free.

    amazon.com

    They're also available in plain (non-lace) versions!

    Promising review: "I love these things! This is by far the best thing I've ever bought. For my people with the chub rub this is your item! I tried it all (powder, deodorant, grease, shorts under my clothes) nothing worked as well as this to stop the dreaded chub rub. The best part? The don't squeeze or roll down! In the summer I don't leave home without them." —Jonesy Jones

    Get them from Amazon for $18.95+ (available in seven sizes ranging from 21" to 32" and 17 colors and styles).

    15. A pack of peppermint and eucalyptus oil shower steamers to help open up your sinuses (those spring allergies...amirite?!) and make your shower feel like a spa. Relaxation isn't just for bath-takers, you know.

    Sage Moon Soaps / Etsy

    Promising review: "Let me start by saying I have a lousy nose — I've suffered with swollen sinuses all my life, but these steamers are a breath of fresh air! I place one in my tub with HOT water on and allow the steam to reach it — poof...(ah☺️)...I can smell it fine! I am very happy with this product and look forward to my shower time even more. Lasts a long time too. I’m very satisfied." —Laurie M. Fernandez

    16. A FURemover rubber broom that, despite the name, isn't just for those with shedding pets (altho it's great for that) — as one of my BuzzFeed shopping colleague knows first hand, it's also great at getting *human* hair out of carpets.

    It works on all floor types, but is *especially* great on carpet. *And* it has a built-in squeegee great for cleaning up spills on hard surfaces.

    Promising review: "This is the best broom ever. My parents own multiple and I just bought my first. It wasn't to clean up pet hair but to collect my own hair, as I shed uncontrollably. The hair ball that formed after sweeping my living room carpet would make you think I should be bald. It was gross but glorious. Everyone should own one." —Michelle K. Tulcan

    Get it from Amazon for $12.98.

    17. A stainless steel, dishwasher safe ice cream scoop with a ~chiseled edge~ and ergonomic grip to make dishing up a sundae feel less like arm day at the gym.

    The pink scoop scooping out ice cream with reviewer text "this scoop went through ice cream like a hot knife through butter"
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "After hours of searching and comparing ice cream scoops I chose this one. I am VERY HAPPY with this purchase. It was delivered exactly on time and we immediately washed it so we could try it out. Wish we would've bought it sooner and saved the lives of our spoons ; -) We tried it on four different ice creams and it was like scooping whipped cream! This scoop is awesome!! Very heavy duty but not too heavy. It has a nice covering that makes it easy to grip especially since I have small hands. Its dishwasher safe and comes with a lifetime warranty!!! This is the only scoop you'll ever need to buy!" —Jackie R.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95 (available in five colors).

    18. A steam diverter for your pressure cooker to move steam to the side, rather than venting up towards your cabinets. No warped wood here!

    A rendering of the spout like vent moving steam off to the side of the instant pot
    Amazon

    Promising review: "We've used our Instant Pot at least weekly since we got it and I've always worried about the upper cabinets. We have a small kitchen and the steam goes straight up to those cabinets. So much so that I have to wipe them dry before I open the lid or it may drip into the food (um, gross). And I've been concerned that the steam may ultimately damage the cabinets. Well, low and behold!! Not this anymore!! The steam was properly diverted away, so no more steamy, wet mess on the edge of the cabinet above!! Amazing. It was much larger than I anticipated, but realize it needs to be that big to work." —renee richard

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99 (available in six colors and styles).

    19. A durable honeycomb drawer insert to corral your socks, scarves, ties, undies, etc. in style — so you can actually see which is which when getting dressed in the morning.

    A reviewer's drawer with the white insert with underwear in each opening
    amazon.com

    Just snap it together (no tools required), and the cells will expand to fit your drawer size!

    Promising review: "Perfect way to organize socks and make it fun to open the drawer and be like 'what socks am I gonna wear today?' And all the colors and patterns beam back at you. If you have boring socks then I would say screw it because you are boring." —Esq

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    20. A completely reusable sponge (run it through the washing machine or dishwasher for cleaning) made from terry cloth on one side, cotton flannel on the other, and polyester mesh for a super effective clean that's also better for the earth.

    Three sponges in different prints
    Marley's Monsters / Etsy

    The prints are also just super cute!

    Promising review: "I’ve been searching for a dish sponge alternative for a long time. I bought one of these to try it out. I loved it so much I bought three more!! Excellent quality, flexible, soft but scrubs well with the mesh, keeps a good lather... all in all even better than a regular dish sponge! I’m thrilled! No more plastic trash dish sponges for me!! Thank you!! 💙🌎💚" —Jessica Hames

    Get it from Marley's Monsters on Etsy for $10 (also available in a three-pack for $28; available in four colors).

    21. An easy-breezy pineapple corer perfect 🎶 if you like piña coladas 🎶... but not spending a fortune on pre-cut pineapple. This thing is so easy to use, it's like a tropical vacation in your kitchen.

    A reviewer's counter with the tool, a cored pineapple exterior, and the spiraled fruit in a container
    amazon.com

    Cut off the top of your pineapple, twist the corer into the fruit (kind of like a wine bottle corkscrew), then pull it out. You now have a cored and spiral-cut pineapple in minutes!

    Promising review: "OMG! Why did I take so long to get one of these? I would typically spend two or three minutes slicing up a pineapple and I LOVE pineapple so its pretty common for me. Now, I can do it in 30 seconds, and that was the first time not knowing what I was doing or what to expect. I suspect I'll have this down to 10 seconds on the next go round. Love IT! Oh, BTW, it is sturdy and seems like it should last a while." —riverseine

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    22. A super bitter-tasting clear polish that'll help you finally quit that nail-biting habit so your fingernails can grow long and strong. Time to treat yourself to a DIY manicure!

    A reviewer's hand in two photos: one with short, bitten-down nails dates 8/20/2017 and one with longer, healthy-looking nails dated 10/16/2017
    amazon.com

    It's totally harmless *and* shine-free, so it won't look like anything's on your nails. It's also great to help kids stop sucking on their thumbs.

    Promising review: "I've always had trouble biting my nails. I read lots of reviews on different products and decided to go with this one. The product is the most disgusting thing that I have applied on my nails...but it worked wonders. After 30 years, for the first time my nails have grown and I love it. I applied it every day for two straight weeks. I will occasionally apply it if I feel like I'm going to bite them. Highly recommended!!!" —A_Emilio

    23. A jar of Olly Restful Sleep gummies formulated with melatonin and l-theanine, lemon balm, and chamomile to help you naturally drift off and support your sleep cycle. And hello, nighttime snack!

    The jar of gummies, four purple gummies on a counter, and text "most productive bedtime snack ever?"
    Amazon

    After taking a higher dose of melatonin a few times in college and having some fun and INTENSELY VIVID NIGHTMARES, I tried these instead. The lower dose of melatonin and the other ingredients have definitely help me get drowsy faster. I always keep a jar on my bedside table to make anxious thoughts-racing-through-my-head, awake at 2:30 a.m. nights a thing of the past.

    A few Amazon reviewers mention their gummies melted in shipment, so if you're experiencing hot weather, you can stock up on them IRL at a local store.

    Promising review: "I've tried other sleep products like the sleep drinks and other gummies but I keep coming back for these! They've worked the best out of any of the others I've tried! I fall asleep fast and stay asleep for the whole night. I also wake up feeling great! No hangover feeling at all!" —Jaime Arnold

    Amazon

    I timed my morning routine to the nanosecond, and I don't have time to chip away sugar with a pick!

    Promising review: "This is the second brown sugar bear I've purchased because they work so well. They are simple to use and very effective. Soak it in water and then place it in your brown sugar container. It will keep the sugar soft and easy to scoop. If you have brown sugar that has already hardened and is like a solid rock, you can place the bear in the container and by the next day you will be able to scoop it again. It's simple, effective, and inexpensive. There is no reason not to get this little bear." —Hannah M.

    Promising review: "I bought this brush a long time ago and it sat unused. Last week, I finally pulled it out to clean the floor of a very dirty fiberglass bathtub. What a great little tool! A job that easily would have taken me a half hour with a regular brush and Comet, took about five minutes and with no smelly harsh chemicals. I am really kicking myself for not trying it months ago. Now, I'm planning to buy one for each of my kids for Christmas." —xxxxx111000

    Reviewers with everything from stick-straight to type 4C curls swear by these!

    Promising review: "I LOOOOVE these curlers! My hair is super long and it never does anything but awkwardly bend because it’s super poker straight! I have to have curlers in overnight to get any curl to stick and these are super comfortable to sleep in! My curls were amazing!! Finally an adorable spiral curl! What’s even better is the 2nd day they STILL looked beautiful! I cannot rant and rave enough about how Awesome these are!" —Amazon Customer

    27. A pair of insulating blackout curtains to keep precious heat and air conditioning IN and annoying sunlight OUT — or even worse, the lights your neighbors refuse to turn off at 3 a.m. that are somehow brighter than the sun.

    A reviewer's window with the sunlight almost completely blocked out by the curtains (just a bit comes in at the top)
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Best blackout curtains ever for the price. I've shopped all over and these are truly what they are advertised. I didn't think I would need blackouts, but I work nights and sleep till noon and these are absolutely perfect. The color is a rich navy which are difficult to find in store. Trust me when I say, I went everywhere: Lowes, Home Depot & Home Goods, Tuesday morning, Ross, TJ Maxx, Walmart, Target. No place had them in this color for this price. I love, love, love, Amazon Prime because I wasn't sure if these were going to work out, but they are above and beyond what I expected." —Josie Holdridge

    28. A dozen Bottle Bright tablets for deep cleaning your thermoses and on-the-go bottles — no scrubbing required. These'll get into all those hard-to-reach spaces and remove *all* the gunk.

    amazon.com

    Just plop one tablet in and let it sit overnight. The foaming action will power away gross stuff, residue, and seemingly permanent odors while you get some beauty sleep.

    Promising review: "My husband drinks about three to four cups of tea a day. He uses stainless-steel mugs that stain horribly. No amount of soaking or scrubbing would get them clean. I set our electric kettle to 200 degrees and poured the hot water over the tablets, filling the mug to the top. I left them in the sink overnight, and all I had to do was dump the dirty water out! No soap or scrubbing at all, and they were like new! I will definitely re-purchase. P.S. Thanks for the recommendation, BuzzFeed!" —Rachel

    BuzzFeed / Yi Yang

    And it's totally biodegradable too. These stain remover is IT. I spilled Thai yellow curry ALL OVER a brand new set of *light blue* Lou & Grey sweats, and this stuff got it out perfectly. I will NEVER not keep this stuff on hand. Just apply, let it sit a while for toucher stains, then simply run as usual in the wash!

    Promising review: "This stain remover keeps working again and again on clothing that I thought for sure was ruined. It works best if you rub it in with an old toothbrush and let it sit for a few minutes, overnight is best in my experience. In some cases, the enzymes work by themselves and dissolve the stain before the item is even washed. This stuff works better than every Pinterest method that I have tried - including Dawn dish soap, baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, etc.! The mini bottle are perfect for keeping one at work or in the car and I purchase the refill bag to fill these small bottles and the larger spray bottle that we keep at home." —Amanda

    31. A silicone lip-exfoliating brush to finally banish dryness and chapping from your pout so you can break out those liquid lipsticks once again.

    Model holding the three brushes, showing the front with small bristles and the back with large ones
    Amazon

    One side has smaller bumps for exfoliating away dead skin (you can use it with your favorite lip scrub, too!) and the other har larger circles to massage in your favorite lip oil or balm for hydration.

    Promising review: "I admit I was skeptical about this product, but my desperation made me click the BUY button. I just had a baby, and between all the milk I was pumping for the baby and caffeine drinking, my body was dried out and dehydrated. My lips were dried, cracked, and even bleeding — very painful. Even my tried and true expensive as heck lip moisturizer I use couldn't help. Having this lip brush did the trick and made all the difference. The exfoliation must have allowed my lip moisturizer to get better absorbed. I saw results in just a couple days. Now I have soft and supple lips again. I tried using a toothbrush and I would not recommend it. This silicone lip brush feels so good and since the 'bristles' or bumps' are shallow. I just needed to use a little bit of my expensive lip moisturizer and it was so easy to clean the brush afterwards. Where has this thing been all my life? I don't think I can live without it now." —Double-J

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in three colors).

    32. A scratch-removing car restoration kit with a buffing pad and polish to make those door-scraping accidents a worry of the past. Your car will look brand-new, but you won't have to spend the big bucks.

    A reviewer's car before using (with another car's paint and scratches on the door) and after using (no more paint, and only small scratches left)
    amazon.com

    It buffs away scraped-on paint and minor scratches — if you can feel the scratch with your fingernail, you'll need to actually go to your local body shop.

    Promising review: "Fast shipping and results! I turned too sharp in a parking ramp and my back door scrapped along a purple pillar in the ramp. This happened a good year ago, and I never got around to taking care of the ugliness. My husband gave me so much crap, and I came across to this product, read the reviews, and ordered. It only took me about 20 minutes to get my 'after' results. It did, however take a lot of elbow grease. Ladies, don’t waste your time and money at the dealership. This product saved me over $500!" —S.R.

    Get it from Amazon for $17.97.

    It has over **50,000** five-star reviews!

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my crazy cat-loving life? Sticky rollers work fine for clothes but this is the only product that has ever COMPLETELY removed all the cat hair from my bed. I have a long-haired 20-pound. tabby and if you run your hands up his back a few times and fling the hair everywhere, it looks like it's snowing – he never stops shedding no matter what I do. After using the ChomChom, I can put on a black dress and roll around on my bed and not get a single hair on me. It's absolutely amazing. Everyone is getting one for Christmas, even if they don't have a pet. I don't care, it's THAT good." —Stephanie

    34. A Maybelline metallic highlighter for adding a warm glow to your face with soft powder infused with reflective pigments you can apply sparingly or intensely.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a great highlighter for its price! I've used Becca's Champagne Pop ($38) in the past, and NO ONE can tell the difference between the two. Its gives a natural looking glow- without the appearance of excess. I use it with both a fan and regular brush. Perfect for both night and day (you'll need to vary the application depending on when you plan to use it, however). Arrived in perfect condition as well." —Ajap Boparai

    Get it from Amazon for $5.84+ (available in four colors).

    35. A Clorox toilet wand with disposable scrubby heads *preloaded* with cleaner so you can clean the whole bowl with one hand — and *one* product.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "You ever look at your toilet brush in disgust and resentment? How's a dirty used-up brush sitting in your throne room? You clean your bathroom but then you put that sucker down in its place and it's just like, mocking you. It's never truly immaculate. Never knowing true cleanliness. Fear no more. Now you can shine the porcelain throne and not have to worry about a used up toilet brush mocking your clean sparkling bathroom. Gone are the days of breathing in dirty poop particles from the reusable potty cleaning brush thingy. Clorox Toilet Wand is the answer to your prayers if you want an easy, deep cleaning, toss-away-after-you're-done type contraption for that porcelain throne of yours. Fast, cheap, and easy. Just like.... How we like to clean." —Juliana

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "The backstory is as to be expected. I tried using the typical toilet brush to clean the ring buildup that had occurred. As with nearly everyone in existence, I had tried quite a few different name-brand toilet bowl cleaners and followed all the instructions. However, they would only remove probably 60-70% of what was built up. The rest I truly tried to put my heart and soul into removing, but the brush just wasn't getting anywhere. LITERALLY within 15 *seconds*, I had already removed nearly every trace of the ring that was there. It was almost eerie to put so little effort into having this take off the remnants that were left behind. It took all of probably two minutes to make sure I got all the spots off. Honestly, the results look like the ring never existed. So, instead of pouring chemicals into your toilet bowl and breathing in traces of bleach (depending on toilet bowl cleaner), this thing can do worlds better at removing the ring entirely. It seems strange to say it, but this is one recommendation that will probably be given to more people than I want to admit. Just... wow..." —Austin S.

    37. A collagen-infused ~protein treatment~ for an intense at-home mask that'll help your strands look and feel less damaged in just five minutes. It's basically a time machine for your hair is what I'm saying.

    A BuzzFeed Shopping writer's wavy hair before using (frizzier and less defined) and after two uses (shinier, heavier-looking, and with a more defined wave)
    BuzzFeed

    *one reviewer says it's even BETTER than Olaplex (which is over three times the price!).*

    This is the same brand that makes the MIlky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask so many people swear by (and it looks damn cool).

    Promising reviews: "I've been very careful when lightening my hair, but the straw feeling is sometimes inevitable when bleached. THIS PRODUCT IS MAGIC. I've always gone to my hairdresser when coloring so I've been fortunate to have my hair stay pretty nice but this made a world of a difference. My hair is like silk, or soft butter. So incredibly soft and shiny, I feel like a walking hair commercial. My hair feels so moisturized and healthy, just as soft if not softer than my hair was prior to coloring (been highlighting for five years now). Will be buying more before I run out, I will never stop using this product. FYI my natural color is the dark brown at the roots and my hair looks healthier than a natural blonde IMO :) ADD TO YOUR CART YOU WONT REGRET. After you shampoo, load your hair up and do the rest of your shower, heck have it be a long shower bc you deserve it, and rinse out with lukewarm water." —Meghan Davey

    "I have 4c hair and was looking for a protein treatment for my thin and fragile. I had recently used a product in my hair that had so much alcohol in it; that wreaked havoc on my hair, leaving it pretty damaged. I was very skeptical about this product because I have never seen anyone with my hair type use it. Boy was I wrong to doubt this product, it left my hair looking and feeling beautiful. I highly recommend it to anyone natural or with curly hair." —Therese-Claire

    38. Bamboo charcoal shoe deodorizers you can pop into your sweatiest, stinkiest beer-soaked flats or old gym shoes — the smell will be G O N E.

    Three shelves of shoes, with each shoe having the rectangular grey fabric pouch inside
    Amazon

    They don't mask odors; they also absorb moisture to prevent mold, mildew and bacteria from forming. You can reuse the bags for up to two years — just pop 'em in the sun for an hour every so often to freshen up.

    Promising review: "I have a pair of black leather flats that stank so badly my husband would yell at me if I took them off anywhere near him. But I love the shoes! So I had to find something to make the stench go away without leaving me with an allergic reaction. Mini Moso was the answer. I honestly couldn’t believe it. A few days after placing them in my prized shoes, I took a whiff from about a foot away. Nothing. I got closer. Nothing. I stuck my nose practically in the shoe. OK, maybe that’s pushing things, but I’ve got to tell you that 95% of the broken-in leather grossness was gone. So happy!" —Erin

    Get one pair from Amazon for $9.95 (also available for packs of two and three pairs for a discount).

    39. A Maybelline brow definer so you can finally stop ~brow-sing~ for better products. Fill in with the teardrop-shape pencil (for precise but natural "hairs") and blend out with the fluffy spoolie for a gorge finish.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I have little to no eyebrows. Penciling them in with something like Brow Wiz ($21) with the tiny tip is pointless and takes forever and I run out in a month or less. This makes it easy and my brows look BOMB!!! I will buy this over and over and over" —Duchess

    Get it from Amazon for $5.98 (available in four colors).

    40. Or Glossier Brow Flick, a handy pen to make those forehead caterpillars look incredibly full. Its a super-fine brush pen that effortlessly draws on individual "hairs" for a natural-but-lush final look.

    Glossier, BuzzFeed / Maitland Quitmeyer

    I use Brow Flick every day that I wear makeup (which is...every day I go outside basically) and love it! Check out my full Brow Flick review for all the deets.

    Promising review: "I have incredible sparse/almost no eyebrows and for the longest time I've been looking for a true neutral brown brow pen that does not lean red or orange! I've tried several over the years, and they have all oxidized into the ickiest, most unnatural colors on me but Glossier, you DELIVERED!! It is the most perfect neutral brown — I can see this shade working on a lot of different people! It also builds well over my regular brow pencil. I can't thank you enough for creating this product. Receiving my Brow Flick in the mail today has made me so ridiculously happy!" —Thankfulgrows

    Get it from Glossier for $18 (available in three colors).

    You can also get a set of Brow Flick and their cult-face Boy Brow for $30 — you save $4 on the combo!

    A reviewer's cheek in two images: one with active acne, texture and redness, the other with no active acne and less texture
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My new favorite scrub! It's gentler than others that I've tried, but I think that makes it better. The soft seaweed exfoliates nicely and doesn't cause micro-tears in my skin like apricot pits or walnut shells do in other scrubs. Most scrubs make my face look very red and irritated after using but this one doesn't. I do think it brightens, too. I use it two or three times a week and I think my skin tone is evening out very nicely. Not too drying, either! Kind of moisturizing, in fact, which is great with a scrub." —Megan S.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.50.

    42. A ~Fasta Pasta~ cooker to make perfectly al dente pasta right in the microwave — no waiting for the pot to boil. Plus, the lid doubles as a strainer, so you really won't dirty any extra dishes!

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $16.98.

    Promising review: "I bought this microwave pasta cooker at a time when I did not have a stove. Even though I have a stove now, I still use this cooker for dinner for myself sometimes because it works so well and quickly! There are lines to indicate how much water to put in the cooker versus the amount of pasta you intend to cook. The pasta comes out very soft and perfectly cooked when instructions are followed. When the pasta is done, the lid is used to drain the cooker of water and works very well. I highly recommend this to any college student or adult who needs a fast microwave pasta cooker!" —Kelsi Murphy

    43. An odor-eliminating candle that'll truly knock out the worst pet stinks and leaving your home smelling ahhh-mazing.

    The lavender green tea candle in front of a model hugging a dog
    Amazon

    They're made with soy wax that burns for up to 70 hours, plus the scents are allergy friendly!

    Promising review: "These candles are fantastic! They smell great, and do a great job of eliminating any odors in your house, not only those from pets. They do work best if you burn them for 1-2 hours at a time, but will get rid of the smells of wet dog, fecal smells, urine odors, and I’ve even found them useful for cooking odors. I’ve had 3 candles now (the first arrived shattered, and was replaced; the next three arrived in perfect condition). I highly recommend these candles. I purchased the Vanilla Creme Brûlée scent. I often get headaches from powerful scents, but have never gotten one from these lovely candles!" —Heather

    Get it from Amazon for $21.95 (available in 25 scents).

    44. A jar of Aztec Secret's Healing Clay mask, which ~pulsates~ as it works its magic, banishing the toughest acne and deep cleaning your pores with calcium bentonite clay. Basically it's like an extracting facial, except you don't have to schedule a pesky appointment or spend the big bucks.

    amazon.com

    If you have sensitive skin, leave it on for five minutes, and if you have normal skin, you can leave it on for up to 20!

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing! I’ve struggled with my skin for years now and I’ve tried to many products, but nothing has cleared my skin up like this mask. I used it with apple cider vinegar every day for the first seven days and the results have been incredible! People ask me every day what I’m doing differently because the results have been so noticeable. I even posted about it on social media!" —Andrew

    amazon.com

    It's filled with a cleansing + polishing solution to rid stones of clouding dirt and oil and ensure every facet shines. Just twist the bottom of the pen to dispense the fluid and brush on!

    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..*oh my goodness*! After one use of the Diamond Dazzle Stik..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 beautiful diamond until I cleaned it. It literally took my breath away with its fiery, dazzling brilliance! My wedding ring is something that always makes my heart beat a little faster: for its beauty, for what it represents...and now, my smile is even bigger and my heart skips a beat a little more as I gaze upon this amazing clarity. It is an amazing value with mind-blowing, beautiful results!" —liltreeclimber

    amazon.com

    And it has everything you need! Three restoration pads of various grits, a spray lubricant, lens clarifying compound, and a lens sealing wipe.

    Promising review: "Very happy with this purchase. My 20-year-old Honda Civic's headlights have seen better days. The lenses were cloudy, yellowed and dim at night. I didn't even have to go through all the steps to see an almost total transformation of my headlights. No sanding necessary - just the first step and the lights looked almost new. I've used headlight restoration solution in the past, and this was significantly easier and better. I have enough to do the process maybe three or four times. Great value, great results!" —AS

    Promising review: "I'm beyond happy. As a Licensed Massage Therapist i was looking for something for my own plantar fasciatis in addition something valuable to offer clients. WINNER! I went TO TOWN with this ball on my feet. Talk about satisfaction. I did rub my feet a little raw with the nubs, but that is 100% my doing. I look forward to rolling my feet over the ball a few times a day. It's immensely helpful and is able to pinpoint + target hard to get areas." —Moon Valley Crab

    BuzzFeed / Katy Herman, Amazon

    Promising review: "Years ago a massage therapist I went to used a cream at my temples that helped greatly with headaches & nausea. I have tried to find that scent for years. THIS IS IT!! I use it daily on my temples & the back of neck just below my hairline. It helps 100% with the nausea I suffer from meds I take. Many of my headaches I can prevent from going to a migraine by applying again at start of headache. I take so many meds because of autoimmune disease's that I like not having to pop another pill for my headaches. I am the most skeptical person you will find when it comes to homeopathic or oils etc., but this works!!" —DVS

    50. A Burt's Bees sunburn soother you need to stock up on *now* before we get into those summer days. You KNOW you don't reapply sunscreen as often as you should anyway.

    A reviewer's back sunburnt in the shape of a bathing suit back on the left / the same back with completely faded burn
    amazon.com

    It's made with a blend of aloe and coconut oil for deeply moisturizing relief that *doesn't* feel greasy. These photos above are four days apart, btw!

    Promising review: "Whenever someone I know has a sunburn, I become that super annoying product-pusher friend. I tell everyone about the sun soother! Really, Burt’s Bees should pay me. It rubs into skin like lotion so you don’t feel greasy and can immediately put on clothes after application. A little goes a long way! It smells good without being overpowering (and I’m picky about scents!). Most importantly, it works! I’ve had everything from slight burn to looks-like-a-lobster-feels-like-fire and this sun soother has eliminated the pain/itch and drastically reduced the eventual peel. Even if it does peel later on, it’s minimal compared to what it would be and look like if I had not used this sun soother." —jlgentr3

    51. A deep-cleaning brush duo with a powerful scrubbing head for banishing grout discoloration and a wiping blade to reach the crevices, crannies, and nooks that never get cleaned.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "This set is the best friend of those who hate cleaning bathroom fixtures. Instead of scrubbing and scraping, you can give a few comfortable whisks with one of these brushes and the job is done. The brushes are particularly good at quick-cleaning the back of the faucets where you normally can't see what you are doing. Also good at keeping the silver drain rings shiny. Couldn't be happier with this set. Recommend it highly." —Rodger

    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

    Promising review: "I don't have carpet in my house so I wasn't sure how I would use this. Welp I ended up using it as my car rug refresher and bam. It left my car smelling like pineapple and lavender. I could literally throw out those little cheap tree air fresheners I buy because the smell is strong. If you don't like strong scents you may want to choose a lighter fragrance. However it worked for me and I love it. Every time someone gets in my car they ask me what air fresher I'm using." —Alexis Scott

    SiVi Tidy Co. is a Black woman-owned vegan cleaning company based in Jacksonville, Florida that *also* makes vegan and earth-friendly products you can buy online.

    54. A Cerama Bryte cooktop cleaning kit, which includes cooktop cleaning solution, a scrubbing pad, and a scraper so you can absolutely remove every bit of baked- and caked-on food from any smooth range in minutes — no matter how long it's been there.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Never give up, like the Little Engine that could. I love my glass top stove, but cleaning it is not as easy as just wiping it down. If you have one, you know how it is when something boils over or spills. This bakes whatever hits the glass and leaves those frustrating scorch marks. No matter how hard I scrubbed, I could never get the film off. I have tried every cleaning product, as well every home remedy suggestion and it never removes the marks. I came across this product on Amazon and after reading the reviews, thought, 'Why not?' Ah, all is good in the world after finding this. I put a quarter-size dot of Cerama Bryte, scrubbed it with a light scratch pad, and rainbows and unicorns came dancing. Ah, so shiny. I think I’ve invested 20+ labor hours trying to clean the stove top, and just gave up. With this product, it took me five minutes. If you have the same issue, get this stuff — it’s incredible. 5 stars+++" —Implied Queens

    55. A pack of ethylene gas-absorbing produce bags to keep your fruits, veggies, and lettuce fresher for up to 10 TIMES longer. Strawberries are expensive, folks — now you can actually finish the whole container.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was somewhat skeptical as to whether or not these would work, but much to my delight, they work very well! The real test were the organic strawberries I bought. They've been in the bag in the refrigerator for eight days now and are still edible. Usually when I buy strawberries, they get mushy and moldy within a day or two. The other veggies I've used these bags for are also doing better than they normally do without the bag. More often than I'd like to admit, we buy a bunch of fruits and veggies and they go bad before we eat them. Thankfully, these bags are extending their edibility, so I'm not having to feed them to the chickens and donkeys. I'm very pleased with my purchase and definitely recommend them." —Dallas Shopper

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Real talk: after learning about this, I ordered two (of the previous version, without the handy grip to protect your fingers) and used it on my bathroom sink and shower. HOLY KAMOLE does it work. So gross, so effective.

    Promising review: "If you need to get into the deep side of your bathroom sink without removing anything....THIS IS IT! Gross crap came out of my bathroom sink. I have long curly hair and nothing was going to dissolve it. EVER. My sink is running free and I will again promise that I will never do anything with my hair over the sink! This puppy worked so good I am ignoring the fact that there is no way to remove the hair and grime it caught from my drain! Seriously no idea how I could possibly re-use. BUT I will order another 5 times as it does what I need!" —Kelly KH
