    Just 10 Things To Try In March

    Because we tried them for you in February.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A bottle of Secret Aardvark habanero hot sauce for juuuuuuuust the right amount of heat without being overpowering. Get ready to drizzle this on all the foods.

    Alice Prendergast/BuzzFeed

    "I love hot sauce. Like I am full-blown obsessed with it. I put it on tacos, I put it on pizza, heck, I’ve even gotten to the point where I put it on a plain, untoasted tortilla and call it a snack. I’ve tried all the classics (Sriracha, Cholula, Tabasco) as well as my fair share of niche, artisanal hot sauces, and I must say, Secret Aardvark Habanero Hot Sauce is one of my absolute faves. I was introduced to it by Hot Ones on YouTube, and then saw how bonkers high its reviews were on Amazon, making it an essential addition to my cart. It’s not crazy hot (5,000 on the Scoville scale, if that means anything to you) and has a fair bit of tomato, making it a great partner for pico de gallo." —Alice Prendergast

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    2. A pair of Suavs high-tops with a super-stretchy knit exterior (made from recycled plastic bottles) for a breathable, super-comfy fit.

    BuzzFeed / Harper Hendrickson

    "I’ve been having a difficult time with shoes lately, due to my feet growing and shoe size changing a little since starting HRT. I recently tried Suavs high-top shoes in Timber, hoping that they would be stretchy enough to fit me till I get through this awkward shoe phase! I was not disappointed, these fit true to size, they are nice and stretchy, and they are some of the comfiest shoes I’ve ever worn. I liked them way more than I anticipated I would, so much so that I didn’t take them off for a week when I first got them! My favorite thing about Suavs are how easy they are to slip on and off, yet they are durable enough to get me through hectic days and long walks with my pup. The few minutes I save in the morning slipping these on when I’m stressed and in a rush really makes a difference. I also love that these are made from recycled water bottles!" —Harper Hendrickson

    Get them from Suavs for $110 (available in sizes 8–14 and three colors).

    3. A pair of Powerbeats headphones so you can work out, jam out, or just...work 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

    Get them from Amazon for $249.95 (available in four colors).

    4. A Pet House room-freshening spray (you may have heard about us talking about Pet House candles a few times!) that'll neutralize the worst pet odors — without irritating your (or your furry friend's) sensitive nasal passages.

    BuzzFeed / Marquaysa Battle

    "I'm sincerely loving this Pet House spray to pieces. I have a 10-year-old doggo and while I keep him bathed regularly, I still like to spritz his kingdom (read: my room) with something that smells super good. The Sunwashed Cotton scent specifically makes my nose happy. Another perk? My dog and I both have allergies (oh, the odds) and everything else I spray tends to send us both into sneezing fits. This spray doesn't tickle either of our noses and it's kinda unbelievable. Good scent. No itchy noses. Plus, the spray instantly refreshes my room and sticks around a nice little while. 10s across the board with this baby. Next, I want to try the Fresh Citrus scent." —Marquaysa Battle

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in six scents).

    5. A couple of Stasher reusable silicone bags to help you reduce plastic waste — while still snacking happy.

    BuzzFeed / Heather Braga

    "I recently ran out of plastic sandwich bags which lead to a discussion between my husband and I if we even really needed them in the house at all. We decided we did NOT and chose to try out reusable Stasher silicone snack bags instead. They've been great! They're super easy to clean, come in fun colors, and feature a really tight pinch-lock seal so snacks stay fresh. We're definitely going to buy the sandwich bags as well. Welcoooooome to a plastic-free 2020!" —Heather Braga

    Get them from Amazon for $9.97+ each (available in five sizes and seven colors).

    6. A pack of Kitsch satin scrunchies that'll work just like a satin pillowcase — but on the go — to fight frizz, breakage, and other hair damage.

    BuzzFeed / Maitland Quitmeyer

    "My hair is curly-frizzy-dry-coarse, heavily highlighted, and all around a piece of work. I added silk pillowcases to my ~hair plan~ a year or two ago, and definitely noticed it helped. But sleeping in a half bun or full bun in regular hair ties, or even Invisibobbles, was still not helping the occasional breakage. So I looked into some satin scrunchies on Amazon and came across these ones by Kitsch (I have some of their decorative hair accessories and like the brand, so I went with those).

    Reader, I love them. I travel in them (they saved my hair on a looooooong set of flights to and from Australia this past January), sleep in them EVERY NIGHT, and I even wear them out when my hair is dirty and it's ~low bun time~ to dress it up a bit. I have absolutely noticed a reduction in breakage and the strands that cascade to the floor when I take my hair down in the morning for styling. If you're looking for a budget-friendly option to just add a little TLC to your hair care, I absolutely recommend these bbs. And in several months of constant use, there's been no stretching out, even though I have quite a bit of hair." —Maitland Quitmeyer

    Get a pack of five from Amazon for $7.99 (also available in black).

    7. A hydrating Hetime sheet mask designed for people with facial hair, but great for anyone who is tired of struggling with how sheet masks fit around their mouth — or find themselves breaking out around the chin.

    Hetime

    "I love a sheet mask but they don’t work for me. Here’s why. 1) They never, ever, ever fit my face properly (particularly around the mouth region), so they kind of just droop down and the product gets into my nose, eyes, and mouth. Yum! 2) I’m susceptible to acne around my chin and I find that face mask formulas tend to break me out in that zone.

    I didn’t think I’d ever really love a sheet mask until HETIME dropped on my desk. The hydrating formula boasts moringa, cedarwood, and baobab for ultimate moisture, brighter skin, and less pimples — but is shaped for anyone with a beard. This means that this mask will make zero contact with my chin. Intriguing, she whispered.

    TL;DR; I applied this mask post-shower for 20 minutes and I knew that my skincare routine would be changed as soon as I peeled off that biodegradable fiber. My complexion felt super-hydrated (a difficult task for winter) but my sensitive chin zone didn’t feel like it was stinging, tight, or about to break out...simply because I applied nothing to it. The formula: Super hydrating. But the design of the mask itself is what gets one million stars from me — it actually fits. " —AnaMaria Glavan

    Get them from Hetime for $8 each (or subscribe to save).

    8. A high-def, indoor/outdoor wireless home security camera system that’s ridiculously easy to install, even easier to monitor, and oh, did we mention the 365-day battery life from a single charge?

    Amazon, BuzzFeed / John Mihaly

    "I was in dire need of a home security camera system for some elderly family members requiring 24/7 care. There are now a lot of people coming and going out of their home, and being over an hour away (when there’s no traffic) means I need the ability to check in from time to time and see what’s going on. Luckily, Anker sent me the eufyCam 2 to test out.

    Setting up the two cameras (one indoor, one outdoor) could not have been easier or quicker (I think I spent more time grabbing and putting away the tools and step ladder). Now I’ve got a live-stream in HD (1080p) straight to the app on my phone (that doesn’t require any additional subscription fee). The cameras are weatherproof, offer legit night vision streaming, and since I’m not constantly checking in, the battery should last up to 365 days on its single initial charge. I even sleep a little better knowing my little old aunties are safe and sound." —John Mihaly

    Get it from Amazon for $350.

    9. An Olive and June ~Studio Box~ complete with everything you need for a f l a w l e s s at-home mani — including their next-level polish handle to make painting neatly so much easier.

    BuzzFeed / Sarah Lee, Olive and June

    "As a Leo, I'm the type to splurge on extravagances even if my bank account is running low and that usually means monthly trips to a nail salon because I'm a perfectionist and struggle with painting my own nails. *Sigh* being a Leo is difficult. It doesn't help that I'm also clumsy and the whole process of painting my nails from removing my old nail polish, while spilling acetone all over myself, to even attempting to finish the base coat, without polish covered all over my hands, is impossible.

    I came across Olive and June back in December through a sponsored Instagram ad. I was hesitant at first because I thought an at-home mani would always be impossible for me even with the proper supplies. However, I was stuck home sick from the flu and decided to try out the Studio Box that I treated myself for Christmas. If I messed up, no one but myself and my two cats (Salem and Sabrina) would see it. The box came with a Nail Polish Remover Pot, Clean-Up Brush, Nail Clipper, Buffer Cuber, Top Coat, Base Coat (a color of your own choosing), *Famous* Poppy Bottle Handle, and Cuticle Serum.

    The two products that really stood out to me was the nail polish remover pot and the Poppy bottle handle. Being able to remove my nail polish without having to pour acetone over a cotton ball made the process so much cleaner and less smelly. The Poppy handle really helped me with my grip and control when painting my nails. I no longer was painting outside of my nails and if a slight nail polish got on my skin, I was easily able to remove it with the clean-up brush and the nail polish remover pot. I highly recommend getting the Studio Box or at least the Poppy bottle handle as it really does help making manicures come out just like they would at a nail salon. Being able to save my money each month means I get to now spend it on more important things such as romance books, ice cream, and scrunchies" —Sarah Lee

    Get the Studio Kit from Olive and June for $50.

    10. An Always Pan designed to do the work of EIGHT pieces of regular old cookware — it comes with a lockable lid, steamer basket, pouring spout, and a nesting spatula with a built-in rest.

    Our Place

    "My husband is the cook in our household, and I am the dish-washer. After we got married, we used our registry money to buy a beautiful set of copper-plated dishes. The problem… they were not non-stick! My husband would frequently complain about cooking with them, and they were also a huge pain to clean. So, when one of my favorite people to follow on Instagram (hi @jengotch) posted about the Our Place Always Pan and I saw that not only was it adorable but also functional, I decided to buy one for my husband as a just-because gift.

    The day after I ordered it, I had a family emergency and had to fly back home for a week. When I got back a week after the pan had been delivered, it was not at my doorstep. I’ll never know if someone stole it or if UPS messed up, but I reached out to Our Place and they were so friendly and without question just sent me a replacement pan. We’ve had the pan for about a month now, and literally it’s the only kitchen utensil we use — from eggs to pasta sauce and everything in between, it seriously does it all! It’s the non-stick to end all non-sticks and could not be easier to clean! I’ve been describing it to friends as the the away suitcase version of a pan — they basically took all the things that people complain about with pans and created the perfect pan. It comes with a wooden spoon that attaches to the handle of the pan so you don’t need to dirty your stove with a dirty spoon, it has a spout on the side so you can easily poor from it, and it comes in adorable colors so I actually keep it sitting out on the stove all the time because it’s fun to look at. I chose the steam color but am also obsessed with the spice color. When I bought it they had a promo code to also get free plates or bowls when you ordered a pan, and so I also got the set of the stackable bowls, which are also so cute and the perfect size for any of your bowl-related needs!" —Maycie Timpone

    Get it from Our Place for $145 (available in four colors).

    It's time to get cooking.
