    57 Practical Products With Before & After Photos So Dramatic, We Made Them Click To Reveal

    Some satisfying, some mildly horrifying — and all getting the job done.

    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.

    1. A mold and 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.

    amazon.com

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

    Promising review: "I CANNOT emphasize enough that this stuff works MAGIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wish I had taken before photos, because when I say magic, I mean UTTER WITCHCRAFT. The caulking around my tub was staining moldy, but a little hit of this and it was GLOWING WHITE like we had just recaulked. I recommended it to my aunt, whose house was built in the 1970s so her tub caulking stains were over 40 years in the making, and she was going to pay someone to come in to strip the caulk and do it over new. I told her no need- just use some of this stuff! Worked like witchcraft AGAIN!!!! Her caulking is also glowing white now, and she's recommending it to HER friends now!!! This stuff is so good, you'll recommend it to everyone you know. No caulking stains are too deep for this!!!!!!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    2. Sugardoh sugaring paste, an hair removal product (with a before & after *gif) so you can try sugaring right at home. Many people — including yours truly — swear by sugaring for ingrown-free, irritation-free skin compared to shaving or waxing.

    Sugardoh

    I'd gotten sugared a few times at sugaring salons and loved it, so after seeing Sugardoh on Tiktok, I bought some of their paste this spring and used it several times over the summer. There is a slight learining curve (Sugardoh's how-to videos and gifs make it *so* easy), but removing the hair I wanted to was easy peasy. I've done it with the plastic applicator as well as just a ball of the paste (like they do in sugaring salons) and both worked super well. I am *very* ingrown-prone (particularly on my bikini line) and sugaring is the only thing that doesn't result in lots of irritation and ingrowns down the road — especially when followed up with an aloe product, like their calming serum. When the (large and long-lasting!) jar runs out, I will absolutely be repurchasing. And it's mostly just sugar and water, so it's totally compostable too!

    Get sugar paste from Sugardoh for $34 (available in two firmnesses) or the essentials starter kit for $72 (valued at $78), which comes with drying powder, a reusable applicator and reusable cloth strips, and a calming serum.

    Sugardoh is a Black woman-owned brand making plant-based sugar paste (from just water, citric acid, and lemon juice) and hair removal tools. 

    3. 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~.

    amazon.com

    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 $4.99.

    4. A set of bed bands that will keep your fitted sheets neatly tucked under your mattress, so you'll sleep more comfortably *and* be able to make your bed wayyyy faster in the morning. And making your bed is really the best way to start a productive day.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have a pillow-top and pillow-bottom queen-sized bed that is a little too small for king sheets and with queen sheets I have battled to keep the sheets from popping off. I have tried everything! I was about to try to customize some king sheets because it was so frustrating. Then I saw this product advertised on Facebook in one of those posts about the amazing products that people love. So I figured it was worth a try. It works. I was shocked. My sheets have not popped off once. I ordered this in February and it is May now — and they have not popped off once! They used to pop off EVERY...SINGLE...NIGHT. To say this is life changing is not an exaggeration. Such a relief to be able to sleep through the night without ending up in rumpled sheets." —TinkerbellAPixie

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $12.99 (available in three colors and two sizes).

    5. A miracle-adjacent carpet stain remover so you can banish wine stains, pet stains, and what-the-heck-even-is-that stains — WITHOUT rinsing or vacuuming. Aka your roommate won't even *know* you spilled in the first place.

    amazon.com

    And btw: it also works on upholstery, woodwork, and even walls.

    Promising review: "This stain remover is so easy to use and really gets the job done. I have two dogs who are constantly getting tracking in dirt onto my rugs and couch. This has cleaned up anything they can track in. It's also taken coffee and red wine stains out of my rugs. It's a true miracle worker. I've never found another product that gets the job done like Folex." —Leah

    Get a pack of two bottles from Amazon for $19.95.

    6. Zesty Paws' pet allergy supplement, which is formulated for dogs with skin sensitivities. These soft chews provide a dose of probiotics and nutrients to help improve immune function, digestion, healthy skin, and keep their coat nice and shiny.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Absolutely the best product. It saved my itchy goldendoodle! We tried changing food, Benadryl, medicated shampoo, fish oil, everything you can imagine... nothing worked long-term. He was itching his face so badly he would make himself bleed. Had sores and scabs all over his face and neck. I bought these because they had good reviews and I was desperate. It changed his life! He no longer scratches AT ALL! His coat looks great and all of his sores are healed. He’s the happiest he’s been which makes me a very happy momma. He is also very picky and never eats treats... he eats these every time so that’s an added bonus!" —Darcie Nation

    Get it from Amazon for $24.27.

    7. And a gentle, enzyme-based pet ear cleaner to not only prevent infections later on and provide relief from itchy ears, but (more importantly) so they can hear very well each and every time you say "I love you." Which should of course be at least 100 times a day.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My husband and I just adopted our cute puppy, Winston, from the Humane Society. When we adopted him, his ears were unfortunately pretty dirty, but after we used this ear cleaner today, his ears are so clean!! I'm so amazed at everything it managed to get out. Our puppy's ears look so much better now! I would highly recommend this product to anyone with a dog." —Jerome F

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    8. A jar of O'Keeffe's Working Hands Lotion for making dry hands a thing of the past, healing cracked skin and protecting against new damage in no time flat. This stuff is basically a miracle for people who wash their hands a bunch.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I am amazed! I have dealt with eczema all my life. I've used steroid creams/ointments, lotions, wash, you name it. And then I tried this miracle product! In four days, my hands looks better then it ever has! I can bend my finger without pain! I'm sooo happy with the results. And I have only been using it for four days!" —Kelly

    Get it from Amazon for $6.98.

    They also make a version for your feet (tho you can probs use the hand one for your tootsies too), which I ALSO l-o-v-e. Get it from Amazon for $6.41.

    9. The Pink Stuff, a TikTok- (and reviewer-) beloved cleaning product that basically...works miracles! Name your mess, and this mildly abrasive paste will take care of business — including but not limited to bathroom tiles, sinks, stove tops, painted walls, grills, and outdoor furniture.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I am genuinely stunned by how well this worked in my shower. I have been trying to get rid of these water stains since the day I moved in almost three years ago. They just got worse with time and nothing would hold them off. Then I tried The Pink Stuff and my jaw dropped as I washed it away. You can see in this picture I did a small section and holy moly, it looked like a new door. I usually don’t write reviews but I had to say how stunned I was with this. I haven’t used it on much else yet but with the results from my shower door, I can only imagine how great it’ll be. I give 5 stars!" —Katie Marchbank

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    10. A plant-based, paraben-free brush 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.

    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.

    11. 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 and large, square patches so you can easily treat and shrink clusters of pimples all at once.

    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

    Get the box of 40 round patches from Amazon for $8.50. OR try their large, rectangular size to tackle multiple pimples at once. Get a pack of eight from Amazon for $8.50.

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

    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: "What in the black magic trickery is this?? I have tried every Pinterest cleaning hack/idea to clean my Converse. This shoe cleaner took me less than 30 min to revive both my shoes. A scrub here, scrub there and done. Now, they are not perfect-outta-the-box clean, but they are like two-months-after-wear clean. Highly recommend. I added new shoelaces to my shoes and they look amazing." —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $15.97.

    13. Or a suede and nubuck brush to freshen up your favorite kicks from last year in no time flat. It has *four* different surfaces for different cleaning needs so you can tackle any stain.

    amazon.com

    The welt surface is designed for stronger cleaning of heavier scuffs and stains, the nylon bristles for gentler cleaning of small scuffs on fine suede, the arched half circle helps you clean rounded surfaces more (think toe boxes!), and the thin, protruding brush can access harder-to-reach crevices or grooves.

    Promising review: "This little brush is the bomb. I have three pairs of suede shoes and they were starting to look really iffy. This thing is so easy to use — I'm usually able to get my shoes looking presentable in under 30 seconds. When I first opened it I thought it looked like an over equipped brush-army-knife hybrid, but after using it for a while you'll find that all of the different nubs and components of the brush have a function. I saw that some people purchase this along with some kind of suede conditioner — I've found that using only the brush has been effective. It is especially great for knocking off all of the NC mud and clay off of my boots without grinding it in. The brush seems durable and well made. I'm a fan!" —Alison B.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    14. An exfoliating First Aid Beauty Bump eraser body scrub reviewers with KP (aka keratosis pilaris) swear by to get rid of those tiny red bumps, without slathering on any additional creams or products — just use in the shower instead of your regular soap.

    amazon.com

    It contains 10% glycolic and lactic acids, and has tiny pumice exfoliants to buff away dead skin for smooooooooooth arms.

    Promising review: "Amazing product! I've suffered with KP on my arms for 15 years and nothing helped. This product didn't just help, it completely cleared it away! I noticed a big difference after just one use and a month later of using it two times a week my arms are smooth and I'm no longer embarrassed of them. I'm so excited! This product has changed my life!" —Sherrie Ruiz

    Get it from Amazon for $28.

    15. An electric fabric defuzzer because hand-picking all the pills off your favorite sweater, leggings, or sheets is just plain annoying. This under-$15 tool will bring anything back to its former glory!

    amazon.com

    These'll shave 'em right off with one pass — without damaging your sweaters.

    Promising review: "Okay, I don’t normally rave about things like this. I bought this on a whim in last attempts to save my favorite duvet cover. The pills had gotten to the point where it was seriously uncomfortable to sleep with them getting all up in my leg space. I thought I was going to have to get a new duvet cover entirely. Along came this lil' baby. Not only is my duvet cover basically brand new, but I have found a new hobby. I’m depilling everything. Sweatshirts, leggings, blankets, socks, anything that looks like it needs some love. It does the job quickly and leaves everything looking fresh. Hi, I’m obsessed. I can’t stop. I should send this back. I’ve started asking if my neighbors need anything depilled. I’m going to buy one of these for everyone in my life. Everyone needs to own this. Take it away from me." —Sydney Jensen

    Get it from Amazon for $13.47+ (available in six colors).

    16. Or an easy-to-use pill remover stone you should try if the whole "sweater shaver machine" thing scares you a bit. Just brush the pumice-like stone gently over your favorite knit that's seen better days and watch the magic happen.

    BuzzFeed / Maitland Quitmeyer

    Like many of you, I've been living in sweats and PJs during this almost-year of WFH full time. And it's made me revisit the state of some of my loungewear. Take for example, this college sweatshirt I wear all the time — as evidenced by the rather EXTENSIVE pilling all over it. So when I saw this pumice-esque sweater stone (it's made from upcycled car windshield glass — how cool is that?!), I decided it was worth the try. We've featured electric pill removers (mostly the fan-favorite Conair one above) many times, and they really work (I've used them too!). But sometimes you're looking for a little more detail or control — that's where this stone comes in handy. I was able to navigate around the contours of the logo on my sweatshirt with ease, removing pills using the corner or the entire flat bottom in a few quick strokes. It truly took no time at all — the sweatshirt was done in mere minutes. The only thing I would note is that particles do "fall out" of the stone, so do your pill-removing on a surface that's easy to sweep or vacuum up at the end. Btw, I procured mine from Celsious, but they're also available on Amazon.

    Get it from Celsious for $17 or from Amazon for $11.74.

    Celsious is a Black woman-owned and environmentally focused laundromat *and* online shop based in Brooklyn.

    17. A Bissel Cleanview bagless vacuum (with just an after photo, but boy is it dramatically full of pet hair) specially designed with a specialized brush roll for picking up embedded pet (and human) hair, powerful suction on carpet and hard floors, and an easy-empty tank so you don't have to (gag) touch all of that icky stuff.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "BEST VACUUM I'VE EVER BOUGHT! I moved into a brand new apartment complex that was just built and after being there for a week with three cats I decided to vacuum the carpet and rugs. TO SAY MY JAW DROPPED IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT. The suction without a doubt is the best one I’ve ever had (including multiple Dysons). It is light weight to push and going from carpet to wood floors is amazing. The attachments make vacuuming my couch so easy to where I’m done in under five minutes!!! BUY THIS VACUUM TODAY!!!" —Skylar Blick

    Get it from Amazon for $118.64.

    18. A dishwasher cleaner and disinfectant to remove limescale, rust, grease, and other nasty buildup so your machine runs more efficiently than ever — while you just sit back and relax.

    amazon.com

    Promising reviews: "After using this product, I am happy to report that my $5 investment saved me over $500. I was ready to replace my dishwasher, due to super cloudy glasses, residue, and just not getting clean. Then, I became aware that the water softener no longer was doing it's job, so I had the rental company replace it. Dishwasher performance improved somewhat. I decided to do two more loads before deciding to purchase a new one. Then I saw a product test review for Affresh in good housekeeping magazine. I was ordering some stuff from Amazon anyway, so I added that to my order. When it came, I tossed one of the tablets into the bottom of the full machine, per instructions, and ran the regular cycle. I did not expect the results I got! My glassware that I thought was permanently etched and ruined came out like new. Same with cutlery. The difference is unbelievable. I will use this faithfully on a monthly basis, as recommended. I can even put it on my subscribe and save order, so I will get a new pack every six months. I am amazed!" —Sheila

    Get a pack of six tablets from Amazon for $5.99.

    19. A sink cleaner and polish formulated to use on stainless steel AND porcelain sinks (plus cast iron, corian, acrylic, and more) to restore that just-like-new shine *and* protect against further damage — all in the time it takes for morning Eggo to toast.

    amazon.com

    I bought this for my white porcelain kitchen sink and I've since texted five people about it, which is really a lot for such a boring grown-up product. It cleans beautifully, but the *best* is its ability to repel stains after cleaning. You know that thing when you rinse out your coffee cup and the coffee water just lingers in your sink and you have to purposefully rinse it out for two minutes? You don't have to do that — the coffee can't stick to the sink and just goes RIGHT down the drain. Time saved, sink clean — this is really a Virgo dream product right here.

    Promising review: "I only WISH I had waited to use this until I could have taken a 'before' pic to go with the 'after' one of my 14-year-old sink. This cleaner is incredible. My cleaning person came Wednesday, but the sink still looked dingy on Thursday with some persistent areas of discoloration and staining. It gets a lot of hard use. Now, five minutes following application of the product with a sponge, a bit of a scrub, and quick rinse, it looks new. I’ve ordered this for both married kids for stocking stuffers. WORKS as promised. Not kidding. Wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t just done it myself and seen the eye-popping results. Quit reading reviews and BUY this stuff! (Read the cautions carefully regarding what kinds of surfaces are appropriate for use of product and which ones to avoid, but on regular stainless steel sinks, it’s honestly perfect.)" —EdUK8

    Get the value size from Amazon for $26.

    20. 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: "Okay so I usually don't review products after only one use but I felt the need to do so with Dr. Tung's Tongue Cleaner. I was very skeptical because I had never used a product like this. I used it for the first time this evening. I was shocked and disgusted at the amount of "slime" that came off of my tongue during the scrapes. I was not expecting that at all. After about 5 scrapes, my mouth tastes so different. I did not experience that same unclean "after taste" I usually have inside my mouth, especially after eating. And for those wondering, no, the process is not even remotely uncomfortable. This product has left such an impression on me after the first use, I have just placed orders for additional to give away as gifts!" —shadygrady0002

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $13.

    21. A set of three scrubbing attachments you simply add to any power drill to make cleaning your tub, floor, appliances, or even the wheels of your car ridiculously fast and easy.

    amazon.com

    The drill is *not* included, but you can get a basic Black and Decker drill ($49 on Amazon) so you can start that speed-cleaning STAT.

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in six colors).

    22. A super bitter-tasting clear polish that'll help you (or your kid!) finally quit that nail-biting habit so your fingernails can grow long and strong. Time to treat yourself to an at-home manicure!

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $16.50.

    23. And a bottle of CND SolarOil, a nail and cuticle oil to help your nails grow and grow (no peeling!), and keep your cuticles nourished and soft, no matter how much hand sanitizer you're using. Just massage in the jojoba oil and vitamin E infused formula daily.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I had peeling, weak nails for years. Tried everything. I bought this in February. This size bottle lasted a bit more than a month with me religiously applying it two to three times a day. I was really seeing great improvement, so I bought another bottle in late March. By May, all the peeling had grown out and my nails were getting stronger every day. I then bought the big 4-ounce refill bottle because I never want to run out of it again! Cannot recommend this stuff enough!" —Diana

    Get it from Amazon for $8.50.

    24. A Remington tapered curling wand that'll heat up in 30 SECONDS and create gorgeous waves so you can head out the door in no time. ~Wave~ hello to all that sleeping-in time you now have.

    amazon.com

    Reviewers with straight and curly (including 4a/4b) hair love how the curls in their hair hold after using this!

    Promising review: "This curling iron is AWESOME. I have silky, baby fine hair and never has anything put a curl in it CLOSE to what this iron does. I use it on the lowest heat setting with no hairspray. I can curl my entire head in less than 10 minutes. After practicing a little, curling feels as easy and natural as twirling your hair around your fingers. It creates natural looking, spiral curls that stay for DAYS -- yes, days! -- until I wash my hair! It must be coated in some kind of unicorn dust. Be aware these curls are not like the regular curling iron curls, where you expect them to loosen through the day. The way you wrap them on the barrel is the exact diameter they will stay until you wash your hair. I bought the 1"-1/2", imagining the curls would loosen. They don't. The small barrel produces very tight spiral curls. They would be good for certain vintage looks (if you brush through) or if you just want very, very tight curls. I'm keeping this ... but I'm also ordering the 1.5" - 1", which I imagine will get 95% of my use. Don't hesitate!! This is one of the best hair purchases I've ever made! My $200 flat iron now sits lonely in my closet because I can't .. stop ... curling my hair for the first time in my life." —Lisa

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in two sizes).

    25. Or a set of foam curling rods so an amazing head of twists and curls is only one sleep away. Wrap your hair around the outside, twist the flexible rod into a loop, C-, or S-shape and then... go to bed!

    amazon.com

    Reviewers with curls from 3A to 4C hair (and also reviewers with straight hair) 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 second day they STILL looked beautiful! I cannot rant and rave enough about how Awesome these are!" —Amazon Customer

    Get a 42-pack from Amazon for $13.99.

    26. 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 3–4 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

    Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $8.

    27. Essence's Lash Princess mascara, which almost *150,000* 5-star reviewers swear by for dramatic length and volume *without* clumps, thanks to the flake- and gob-free formula and cone-shaped brush.

    amazon.com

    And at this price point, it's easier to replace our mascaras as often as we...should... (every three months!).

    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.

    28. A Iron Out rust stain remover you can use on interior *and* exterior stains from the bathroom to the concrete. The formula clings to the stain — you don't even need to scrub!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Worked on contact. No scrubbing, or pulling out the brush, just let it sit for a few minutes and the orange rust stains were gone. We have very hard well water and when out softener died, we needed a little time to research and save up for a new system. I was using everything under the sun with all the elbow grease I could muster to remove the stains. Until I tried Iron OUT. Already bought more." —Stevie

    29. A bottle of all-natural, plant-based Puracy stain remover powered by enzymes to completely remove the most annoying stains (we're talking grass, blood, tomato, oil, sweat, and more!). Spray on and let sit overnight for the toughest spots.

    amazon.com

    And it's totally biodegradable too. Literally this week a friend texted me for a stain remover recommendation, and I immediately texted back PURACY in all caps. It's removed Thai curry from a light blue sweatsuit, an ink transfer stain from a reusable Target bag that got allllll over a lavender skirt set that I was sure I'd have to just get rid of. You name it, Puracy has taken care of it. Pro tip: the worse the stain is, the longer you should leave the stain remover on before washing.

    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

    30. 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.

    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. 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.

    31. And a headlight-restoring kit that'll make your yellow, dingy car headlights look brand new (you know, keeping you safer) in just *five* minutes.

    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

    32. A pet hair removing roller with a patented brush design (and *no* adhesive strips) to rid your lovely black sofa of all your furry friend's shedding in a quick roll — so you can get back to cuddling together.

    amazon.com

    It has over 70,000 5-star reviews!

    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

    33. 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.

    BuzzFeed / Bek O'Connell

    *one reviewer says it's even BETTER than Olaplex (which is over three times the price!).* And reviewers with all hair types have left five-star reviews. Btw, 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 review: "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

    Promising review: "I have 4c hair and was looking for a protein treatment for my thin and fragile hair. I had recently used a product in my hair that had so much alcohol in it; that reeked 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

    34. 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

    35. Or if it's already too late for some of those stains (looking at you, hard water!), a gentle but abrasive pumice stone FOR YOUR TOILET to remove the most permanent-seeming rust, lime, and hard water stains — without scratching the porcelain.

    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 fifteen *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.

    36. A cradle cap comb that slides right onto your hand and has two tools built in: a soft, rubber bristle brush to (gently!) loosen flakes and a fine-tooth comb to remove them.

    amazon.com

    And don't worry new parents (or non-parents who are looking at this and thinking...what?!): Cradle cap (seborrheic dermatitis) is a very common dry scalp condition that affects infants.

    Promising review: "The pictures posted here are legit. It makes removal so much easier and gives more consistent removal than my previous method of washcloths or just scratching the cradle cap off with my fingernails. It’s amazing and gross and wonderful. My babe doesn’t even flinch when I spend 10 minutes clearing his scalp of all the goo. It seems to be soothing to him. I just apply baby shampoo, then brush a little with the blue brush. Then I slowly start to comb in sections all in one direction. Then I go back and forth in multiple directions. It’s shocking the amount of dead skin that comes off. I’ve even used it successfully in his eyebrows (he gets some cradle cap there, too). This is a KEEPER!" —ZMomUtah

    amazon.com

    Each one feeds your green child for up to two months!

    Promising review: "I have several houseplants that had stopped flowering, so I put a few of these spikes in the pot (there are directions on the back of package for quantity), and approximately a month after using these spikes, my peace lily had three flowers on it, and my African violets plants all got several blooms on them! This worked wonders for my plants that don't flower also! I noticed that my ivy and cactus plants started growing faster, and they became more green and healthy-looking. I am very happy with this product, and I will buy it again." —Elizabeth

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "The best thing I’ve ever bought for my hair and the only thing I’ll use on it!!! 100000000000/10 recommend this. Cuts drying/styling time down to 15 minutes. Leaves my hair shiny without any frizz as if I just straightened it. Make sure you use a heat protectant as always. Buy it!" —Tuesday Henry

    Get it from Amazon for $35.99+ (available in five colors).

    While some reviewers with curl types 4a–c like the oval brush, if you're looking for something to blow out tighter curls or coils, try the Revlon One-Step *paddle* brush, which is designed with curlier hair in mind!

    39. An under-the-sink water filtration system to help you kiss your Brita goodbye and pour a glass of the good stuff straight from the tap.

    amazon.com

    It has a two-step filter that removes 99.99% of contaminants, and it comes with direct connect hoses to hook right up to the standard 3/8" valves in U.S. kitchen sinks. It's designed to be installed in under three minutes.

    Promising review: "We have town water and it seems they are putting more and more chlorine in it every year. We should be getting used to it and tasting it less and less, not more! The refrigerator filters are super expensive and weren't cutting it. Every time I put a glass to my mouth it smelled like a swimming pool. I searched the internet and decided to give this a try due to the positive reviews and affordability. Wow! easy install (I'm an avid DIYer). And the taste! The chorine taste is just gone! No more overpriced fridge filters for us. I love that the filter replacement procedure is basically the same as a fridge. Just twist and remove. We love it so much I teed off the fridge line and put a dispenser at our sink as well. The flow on this thing is just amazing! And the water tastes great! Don't waste your money on the expensive, complicated ones. My parents have a three-chambered, name brand filter at their house. It was expensive, the replacement filters are expensive, it is a pain in the petunias to replace the filters, and the flow rate is pathetic! But guess what! Our water from this filter tastes just as good as theirs at a fraction of the price, plus it's way more convenient, plus the flow rate is way better. I just can't say enough. Love, Love it! You will too!" —BJ

    40. An Acure brightening facial scrub that'll say "buh-bye" to dirt and oil, with sea kelp and French green clay to soften and detox your skin without removing all the moisture.

    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 $8.50+ (available in three formulas).

    41. A bottle of Bar Keeper's Friend soft cleanser (it's pre-mixed so it makes less of a mess than the original powder). Seriously. It works on SO. MANY. SURFACES — sinks, cookware, stainless steel, faucets, countertops, tubs, toilets, grout, and more — so you can get to work and see results with only one product.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Hands down the BEST cleanser for sinks and tubs I have ever used. I bought his because the Comet bleach cleaner was not getting rid of some stains in my tub (regular use stains and a little ring from a cup). After two applications of Bar Keeper's Friend, one overnight and one for a couple of hours, the stains and 95% of the ring are gone. And it smells a thousand times better than Comet or bleach. Do not hesitate to buy." —SI801

    amazon.com

    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

    Tower 28

    Promising reviews: "It really works. I found this product on Instagram, read the reviews, and decided to give it a try. My skin looks transformed after 10 days. My maskne is greatly improved, redness is gone, and my skin feels great. I have aging, oily skin that's still acne-prone, and this product not only had not broken me out, but has eliminated the small breakout I was having. I'm in love." —Bonnie

    Promising review: "I give 12/10. Holy grail. Undupeable. This tastes like salt and smells like a pool BUT it has calmed my rosacea and healed my cystic acne in a day or two (would normally take weeks). I’m spraying it in my mask to keep maskne away. It’s everything. Only downside is I’m going through it so fast that it’s going to be an expensive habit. But so far it’s worth it." —EssJay

    44. CeraVe Moisturizing Cream for keeping your skin from ~flaking~ on you, helping restore your skin's barrier to lock in moisture *without* ever turning greasy or oily.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have oily but flaky skin in winter. It's really annoying, no matter how much I exfoliate or moisturize, my cheeks get flaky. I can't even wear foundation or powder because it will make the flaky texture more obvious... Anyway, out of pure desperation and tired of spending money on scrubs and moisturizers, I purchased it and started using this a few days ago. It has kept me flake-free! It doesn't leave a greasy film, it sinks right into my skin. I even wore it with makeup today and my skin was smooth and flake-free. My makeup stayed nice all day. I wish I had tried that sooner, I have the same problem every winter! I apply it from head to toe. It's awesome and you get so much product for the money." —MLK77

    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

    Promising review: "I live in an apartment so the carpet quality is not the greatest. I had a stain that occurred from a garbage can liner leaking a long line of... I don't know what... across a four-foot piece of carpeting. No home remedies worked. Bought a steam cleaner I had been wanting and this product. I am totally amazed at how well it worked! The stain is gone. I need to add that I had tried EVERYTHING with a lot of elbow grease and nothing else worked. Whatever it was in my carpet this product was removed completely after two applications in two days!" —Cat D.

    47. A toenail brace kit to train those ingrown nails to grow OUT instead of growing OUTCH. Nail curvature, you have met your match.

    amazon.com

    Just apply the brace across your nail, and it'll act like a spring, applying a gentle pressure to straighten the nail. You should see results within the week! The kit comes with 10 toenail braces and adhesive to apply them.

    Promising review: "My big toe on my left foot was hurting and I wasn't sure why. I had never had an ingrown toenail before so I didn't realize the issue at first. It got to the point that it was throbbing and even the comforter on my bed hurt when it was laying on top of my toe. I saw this product on BuzzFeed of all places and decided to check it out. Application was easy and I followed the directions step by step to make sure this thing worked. I let it dry and then reapplied my nail polish and you can't even notice the damn thing. I woke up the next morning AND MY TOE DIDN'T HURT ANYMORE!!!! It's been six days and it hasn't fallen off, and I notice it's starting to correct the curve of the nail." —Megan Kelly

    amazon.com

    They're made from a mold-proof fabric, too, so that's cool. And *bonus*: they collapse to store flat when not in use. You get four bins: a six-cell (for scarves, hankies, and ties), an eight-cell (great for undies), a seven-cell (designed for bras), and a 24-cell (great for socks)

    Promising review: "I LOVE LOVE LOVE these organizers!! I almost did not purchase them due to the reviews saying that larger than a C-cup would not fit into the bra organizer. At just $13 for four organizers I took my chances and ordered two sets of four. I figured, worst case scenario I would have to cut the dividers out of the bra organizers. I wear a 32DD and the bras fit beautifully in the organizers. I am so glad I took the chance and did not listen to the reviews. I would have missed out on the best cheapest organizers I have ever found. I ordered another set for tank tops and other extras I did not think of before. I will also order my boyfriend the brown ones for his drawers. Great product for a great price!" —Elizabeth L. Blackwell

    49. A bottle of Chamberlain's Leather Milk conditioner to bring new life to your furniture, shoes, handbags and more. It's like a time machine for dull, scratched, or dried-out leather, is what I'm saying.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Had an old ottoman that the leather was just so dried out. Thought about just tossing it but then I researched leather restoring products this was listed as one of the best. As you can see from the photos, the transformation from dried, discolored leather to what is as close to the original luster that was made with just one application is pretty remarkable. And the feel of the leather is soft and supple. No sticky feeling at all. Very satisfied with the results." —Bonnie

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was BLOWN AWAY by this product! I have dealt with calloused, cracked heels for as long as I can remember. Some things have worked better than others in the past, but I’ve been in a rut of bad feet for the past several months. The foot rasp/file/scraper that I had was not even coming close to doing the job, and it is a similar style to this one so I wasn’t getting my hopes up for this one. Based on the reviews and before/after pics I had to give it a shot though! I gave it a go before getting in the shower and was just so impressed with how easy to use it was and how incredibly it worked. It took less than 15 minutes between both feet and VERY LITTLE pressure/effort was required. This $11 product gave me better results than most professional pedicures I’ve had! I imagine that if you use this on feet that aren’t very calloused and more so just rough or dry that you it may be too much for you, so be careful. Overall I would HIGHLY recommend this product to anybody with seriously calloused feet!" —Khall

    51. Or a Baby Foot exfoliating peel 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.

    amazon.com

    I have also used Babyfoot and it...reeeeaaaalllllyyyyyyyy works!

    Promising review: "I'm obsessed. This stuff works exactly as expected. Definitely soak feet for about an hour, put on booties for an hour, then rinse with soap and water. Soak every day after, and for the next two weeks, for five to ten minutes...wear socks as much as you can and at least for 20-30 min after daily soak. Tops of your feet and ankles will not peel off in sheets, but that skin is usually much softer than bottom of the foot. Bottom of feet and toes started peeling about 48 hours after treatment. Big peeling started about 24 hours after that. This even softened the feel of two large surgical scars on my ankle and foot. Tips: Do NOT moisturize at all during peeling process. Don't do this within 2 weeks of having your bare feet exposed to the public...it's kind of gross in a neat way. I have very sensitive skin and didn't get any kind of irritation. It's impossible to NOT peel the huge pieces, but make sure you stop peeling if you get resistance. Soak for 10–15 minutes and wait for the skin to soften if you must peel. You don't want to create wounds or sore spots. I'm hooked and will do this again and again." —Shannon

    Promising review: "I really was hesitant to try this but I decided I would take the plunge anyways and I have to say after using it for a few weeks now I'm pleasantly surprised! My hair is so soft and shiny and lightweight! I love how bouncy it is after using this plus it smells amazing. Not vinegar-y at all. My daughter has been using this as well for her oily hair and dandruff (after trying tons of super expensive salon products) and so far this is the only thing that has been working for her! Her dandruff is gone and her hair is noticeable less oily by the end of the day. We will definitely be buying more." —kindlemom1

    54. A tub of Musher's Secret wax to protect your pupper's paws from too hot or too cold pavements all year long — some reviewers even say it helps dogs with hyperkeratosis.

    amazon.com

    Promising review (plus some helpful tips!): "I've been a professional dog groomer for 10 years, and I use this product all the time. Looking through other reviews, there seems to be a lot of confusion about how to use this, so here's everything you need to know:

    WHAT IT'S FOR: I use Musher's Secret to protect paws both from the salt and cold in winter (snow and ice stick to the hair between paw pads and can cause frostbite; Musher's Secret helps prevent the ice and snow from sticking), and it also helps protect paws from hot pavement in the warmer seasons. This doesn't mean that you can let them walk on burning hot pavement if they have this on, it just helps to prevent the pads from drying out and becoming damaged and uncomfortable.

    HOW MUCH TO USE: YOU ONLY NEED TO USE A TINY BIT! It seems that some people are putting way too much of this on! What I have on my finger in the photo below is enough for two of my medium-size dog's paws! It should never be gloopy on their paws! It's just like putting on lotion, basically- you just put enough on to very lightly coat the paw. The product starts soaking in almost immediately; I've never had a problem with staining my couches or carpet with proper application.

    PETS LICKING IT OFF?: If your pet tries to lick it off his/her paws, distract them for a few minutes until it's completely soaked in. I give my dogs very chewy sweet potato treats after applying this to their paws both as a reward for letting me and to keep them distracted from it while it soaks into their skin so they don't lick it off. If it takes more than a minute or two to completely soak in, you've applied too much." —Max Siegel

    Promising review: "I cannot even express how much of a miracle worker this product is. We had five years of soap scum and hard water build up on the glass shower doors in our master bathroom, and I was certain that nothing would get it out. I had tried dryer sheets, white vinegar and baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, Kaboom!, LimeAway, and pretty much any other generic cleaning product you can think of. With just a tiny bit of elbow grease and effort this stuff made my shower doors look like new again! It's protected it pretty well since, and I just use a squeegee after showering to keep the glass clean. I love this stuff!" —VixLyss

    I use this too where prone to razor burn and ingrowns, and it reeeaaallly helps. Like, really.

    Promising review: "I’ve always been in awe of ladies who have silky smooth legs and have wondered what I’m missing...Tend Skin is what I’ve been missing! Wish I would’ve found this a decade ago. My legs (and arms...I get little bumps on the back of my arms above my elbow) have never been so SMOOTH! Even my husband commented and asked what I’m doing different. This is such a wonderful product, and I always make sure to have a backup on hand so I don’t run out!" —Anna A.
