    36 Problem-Solving Products You'll Probably Be Relieved To Have On Hand

    Future me is going to be so happy I stocked up on these.

    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 bug bite suction tool that'll actually *remove* venom, saliva, or other irritants to ease swelling and stop those 'squito bite itches once and for all. Good news: you don't need to press that "x"-shape into your skin anymore with a fingernail.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Several of my coworkers already swear by this. Just note: it has a strong suction power, so be gentle and follow their directions!!

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    Promising review: "I am a magnet for bites of all kinds and carry topical and medicines with me at all times — so I figured this would be a good product to see if it really works. I woke up with a bug bite on my arm so I used this little tool (three times per the instructions) — immediately after using, it stopped itching! And less than 24 hours later the bump/bite gone! There is a very faint red mark from using the thing, but a small price to pay IMO. Bottom line: it’s awesome. I’m carrying it with me everywhere!" —Rebecca

    2. A heatable/freezable uterus to cuddle up with when pesky cramps are just getting too much. I mean, it's pretty darn cute(rus).

    Urban Outfitters

    It's filled with buckwheat and lavender for the ultimate in relaxation.

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $29.

    3. A handheld back roller so you can give (and get) relaxing massages without anyone's hands cramping. Sleep funny last night? You'll find this ahhhh-mazing.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (available in four colors).

    Promising review: "Okay so you can go get a super nice one for $50+ or just buy this one, save a bunch of money, and get the same result! A friend of mine had one of those nice ones and I HAD to get one, how good it feels and the ease! But when I saw the price I was thinking that I’ll try a cheaper one and I am not disappointed! And my hubby is happy because I’ll give him more massages now because it doesn’t hurt my hands." —Snelso

    4. A pack of individually-wrapped ginger drops for help stopping nausea and seasickness in their tracks — without the doziness you might get from other remedies.

    BuzzFeed / Elizabeth Lilly

    Get a bag of 30 individually-wrapped drops from Amazon for $10.44.

    Promising review: "These are magical. Seriously. I use them for nausea of all sorts - travel, hangovers, real sicknesses, you name it! I will not go ANYWHERE without them in my pocket or bag. I’ve saved many a drunken/sick/motion sick friend with these little gems. A walk through my apartment will reveal them in every nook and cranny: bathroom — check; nightstand — check; kitchen — check. Now I’m sure they’re geared toward pregnant mommies, but anything that’s good for them is good for you and your irresponsible friends. So do yourself and your sick/drunken friends a favor and BUY THEM." —Julie W.

    A BuzzFeed editor swore by these to stop nausea on rockin' and rollin' catamaran trip in Greece — check out her full review for more info!

    5. Sugru, a moldable glue you can use for SO MANY PURPOSES. You can fix fraying wires, hang pictures (without a nail), create ergonomic grips on tools, and soooooo much more.

    Amazon

    It sets strong because it turns into silicone rubber, permanently bonding to almost any surface. It's waterproof (use it to secure a shower caddy!), heat- and cold-resistant (use it to insulate a pot handle!), and electricity-insulating (fix those constantly fraying smartphone cords!).

    Get an eight-pack from Amazon for $19.99 (available in seven sets of colors).

    Promising review: "My Macbook Pro charger wire was starting to break so I got some Sugru to mend the damage. Absolutely incredible product that saved me like $70 to get a new charger. The only downside is each package is not resealable. Luckily I also had an iPhone cable and Apple earphones to reinforce. So basically, Apple, get your s*** together and pack some Sugru with your products." —Leesankwok

    6. A Burt's Bees sunburn soother, because you KNOW you don't reapply sunscreen as often as you should anyway. It's made with a blend of aloe and coconut oil for deeply moisturizing relief that *doesn't* feel greasy.

    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!

    Get it from Amazon for $7.30.

    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." —

    7. A liquid-free rolling screen cleaner so when you're home sick and sneeze all over your laptop, you can get those snot droplets (snotlets, if you will) off immediately.

    youtube.com

    Oh, is that just me?

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95 (available in two sizes).

    Promising review: "This little device removes the oil from your screen. Often, when you are 'cleaning' your screen by wiping it with a cloth, you are simply pushing around the oil into a thin enough layer to see through without noticing it as much. This device actually lifts the oil and removes it. My screen feels like new, which is great because I am picky about my devices. Also, this is much better than cleaning the screen with some kind of wipe since repeated cleaning with most wipes will damage the screen over time. Unbeknownst to me, my wife was cleaning her screen daily and now her screen collects oils far too quickly because she wore off the protective layer. With this product, you don't need to worry about that. Clean it as often as you want/need and you can continue to enjoy that pristine screen without fear of wearing the oleophobic layer off prematurely. I would highly recommend this to others." —Alex

    8. 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~. Every time you get a new electronic device, you'll be so happy you have a sheet of these.

    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!

    Get a sheet of over 100 dimming stickers (in multiple sizes and shapes) from Amazon for $5.99.

    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

    9. 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.

    amazon.com

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

    Get the box of 40 round patches from Amazon for $8.08. OR try their large, rectangular size to tackle multiple pimples at once. Get a pack of eight from Amazon for $8.50.

    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

    10. Or a pack of microneedle pimple patches designed specially for emerging, active, and cystic acne. The super-thin (thinner than a strand of hair) needles penetrate the blemish, delivering ingredients like salicylic acid and tea tree oil below the surface of the skin to combat acne where it lives — plus hyaluronic acid to prevent over-drying.

    Amazon

    Get a pack of nine patches from Amazon for $11.39.

    Promising review: "THIS MICRONEEDLE PATCH IS AMAZING!! I normally use the Cosrx pimple patches but those don’t really do much for my deeper bigger pimples. I had a recurring pimple near my nose so I used this overnight. I’ve had issues with my Cosrx patches coming off in my sleep but this one stayed on so well. I was very impressed. Also, you can really feel the microneedles when you place the patch on — a very slight poke is all but it’s cool how you can feel them). I woke up in the morning to a much flatter/less red pimple! Definitely recommend this — it’s a bit pricey but you can tell the difference in quality." —Sharon Won

    11. A bottle of Downy wrinkle release spray you can just spritz on and magically reveal crease-free clothing when you can't bear to even wait the 90 seconds for your steamer to heat up.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Just spray, quickly smooth over with your hands, and wear!

    Get two bottles from Amazon for $13.24+ (available in two scents).

    Promising review: "This stuff is the bomb dot com. You just spray it on your clothes, smooth out the clothes with your hands quickly, wait a few minutes and the clothes are wrinkle free! I hate ironing, so this is magic. Obviously it won't work on hard creases but wrinkles from the dryer, for example, it will get rid of." —J. Larsen

    12. 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.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.84.

    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

    13. 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.

    Get a pack of two bottles from Amazon for $19.99.

    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

    14. 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.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    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.

    15. A grocery list notepad stuck right on your fridge so you 1) never forget anything at the grocery store, and 2) stop wasting money on impulse purchases you don't *actually* need. Stick to the list!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I put these right on the front of the fridge. I tend to run to the grocery store for one thing I forgot and end up with a whole buggy full. I'm thinking this will surely save me trips to the store and money that I usually waste buying something else. There are extra lines to write in anything that's not listed. Perfect!" —CD

    Get it from Amazon for $9.40 (available in four colors).

    16. A handy dandy portable charger for all those times you leave the house without checking how much battery power you have. Oh, am I the only one who does that?

    Amazon

    This has two USB ports to charge two devices at a time, and it holds enough juice to charge THREE iPhone 8s — so it's ok if you forget to charge *this* bb all the time too.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    Promising review: "This thing is amazing & I’d give it 20 stars If I could!! You will NOT be disappointed! My phone was at 48%, I plugged this in, and in 45 minutes it was up to 100% with plenty of charge left in the charger bank!! I plug it in at night after I use it and it’s fully recharged in a couple hours — and it has awesome light to show you how much it’s charged. It’s flat and fits in my purse or pool bag perfectly. The quality is fantastic & better than any other bank I’ve owned!!" —shayk

    17. And a rapid car charger with a whopping FIVE USB ports and a FIVE-FOOT cable to power up the whole family's devices on the go. No more fighting, kids!

    Amazon

    The USB ports are ~intelligent~, meaning they can detect which device you're plugging in, and charging it as fast as the device will allow.

    Price: $19.99+ (available in eight colors)

    Promising review: "This is one of the best things I think I have ever bought. I got this for a family vacation where there is always a fight over who gets to charge their phone. This gave everyone the chance to use it and having the part that reaches to the backseat was PRICELESS!!! My son could charge and play at the same time, which was lovely. I highly recommend this to parents with more than one child!!" —Leigh-Anne L.

    18. A pet-feeding reminder chart so you never have to ask yourself whether you fed Rufus, or if that was yesterday.......

    amazon.com

    Just slide the toggle over whenever the task is complete, and you can rest easy, knowing your precious pup or favorite feline is neither hungry nor overfed. It comes with magnet and sticker mounting options, so you can affix it right to your fridge *or* directly to the food container.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    Promising review: "Bought this as my roommate and I kept getting tricked by our cat to double feed her. She can be very deceptive (look how adorable she is)! This product has prevented me from double feeding her twice in the first week of use! Highly recommend. We leave our feeding reminder right on top of her hinged feeding container. 5/5 stars!" —Travis H.

    19. A mega-pack of precision-tip swabs for correcting eyeliner, applying concealer right around your lipstick line, removing errant mascara marks, and more.

    Amazon

    Get a pack of 600 pointed swabs from Amazon for $7.99.

    Promising review: "Perfect quality. Very firm, helps correct even the minutest slip on your lipstick or eyeliner. Finally something to correct, with great precision, the small mistakes on my L'Oreal Infallible lipstick, to get the perfect lip lines!!! You will use lots of them, so this is not a large quantity. Indispensable tool for makeup! Also, great for nail polish correction!" —Deborah B.

    20. A fold-up duffel to bring on vacation when you KNOW you'll be bringing back more than you came with. It folds into a teensy pouch when not in use, is tear- and water-resistant, and even has a separate side pocket for shoes.

    Amazon

    Fold-up duffels like these are my GO-TO when going on a vacation I know will be shopping heavy. And then you can bring your new finds on the plane to ensure they don't get lost.

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99 (available in 10 colors and four sizes).

    Promising review: "A great purchase for us. I needed an extra bag for all our souvenirs at the end of our vacation. It was easy to unfold and refold. It was sturdy enough to survive check-in for an international flight! I love that I can take it with me any time we travel now because it folds up neatly into a small packet- it’s light and takes up no space at all! Very good value for money." —Efy Herr

    21. A lil' tin of breath mints that'll pack a big punch of energy when you're hitting that inescapable 3 p.m. slump — that's right, there's 40mg of caffeine per mint! Plus a complex of vitamins.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99 (available in five flavors).

    Promising review: "This is one of best things any person can have in their desk at work or in their car. Need a major caffeine boost in five minutes? Pop some Viter. I keep some at work just. You never know when you need caffeine but you don't want to spend $7 in a Starbucks run and don't want the disgusting stuff they pass for coffee in the break room. Since they're mints, they don't go bad and the container is really nifty and small too. Just FYI: They do hit with a kick though. You'll be at an 11 for like five minutes after you pop one of these, so remember that when your heart rate jumps up a little." —Pen Name

    22. A handy-dandy plate cover to keep food-plosions from splattering the inside of your microwave (looking at you, tomato sauce and baked beans!). It has magnets on top, so you can store it *in* the microwave between uses so your fam never forgets to cover their food again.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (also available in black).

    Promising review: "We've had regular microwave splatter covers before — & they are a hassle, get misplaced, take up space, & clutter up the kitchen. This microwave splatter cover, however, is really nice. The enclosed magnets make it possible to keep the cover inside the microwave at all times — whether in use or not. To use, simply pull the cover down over your food. When finished, just lift the cover, & the magnets fasten it to the top inside of the microwave! This way you're not constantly having to remove the cover when putting something into the microwave, then replace it back over your food, & finally having to remove it once again when the food is ready. A very nifty, convenient way to keep your microwave clean! I love it! 👍" —Olivia358

    23. A weighted blanket reviewers swear by to help with anxiety, stress, and insomnia. The just-heavy-enough pressure can help you relax and feel comforted enough to drift off.

    Amazon

    It's available in three sizes and and 10 weights, so whether you're looking for one for a kid, for yourself, or to use in a king or queen–sized bed with your partner, there's an option for you!

    Get it from Amazon for $59.90+ (available in six colors and prints).

    Promising review: "This is the BEST purchase I have ever made. I have been an insomniac for years and have never successfully been treated. Even with many doctors appointments and medications — NOTHING worked! On top of that I have RLS (Restless Leg Syndrome). I thought I would give this blanket a try. This product is not advertised for RLS but it absolutely should be! I have had my blanket for three days and I have been basically sleeping in a coma-like state!!! Its is the soundest and best sleep I have ever had in my life. And the comforting weight on my legs and boy just eases those RLS symptoms and drifts me off to a sound sleep!!! It is so hard to describe the feeling of peace and comfort the minute you lay it on your body. I actually ordered the 15-pound blanket for my weight and height because I wanted the extra weight just in case. I decided to go ahead an order a second one if I have an emergency situation and need even more weight on my legs. This product is phenomenal to say the least!!!" —DeAnn Barksdale

    24. A super-speedy wine stain remover so you can quickly undo Sandra's sloshing all over your pristine white couch and carpet, without losing your ~temper-nillo~. Now you can get back to enjoying the party.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Totally impressed! The unassuming generic packaging and label left me a bit skeptical but this stuff is almost as exciting as the wine I spilled! This cabernet stain sat on my ivory faux fur blanket for over a month before I tried this product. Completely gone in one try! Get this. Seriously. You won’t be disappointed." —Persian Tess

    Get it from Amazon for $6.67.

    25. A foldable handheld fan to bring a surprising amount of cooling power on the go. Or to pretend your hair is being blown back in a photo shoot — totally up to you!

    Amazon

    It's under four inches long (aka it can fit in your pocket or purse), has two speed settings, and can be charged by USB or powered by batteries!

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in three colors, or with two fan heads for $13.99).

    Promising review: "I liked it so much I got a second! I had gotten one for my girlfriend because she wanted to make sure her makeup doesn't come off during humid days, but I started using the fan and the fan is amazing. I thought it was going to be one of those cheap ones that break or have weak wind power but this is so strong. It has two settings normal and high, as if normal power wasn't strong enough. I am someone who sweats a lot so after walking a long day and I sit in the park somewhere, I just use this to cool off. I have been using it for a week now. It's USB charged so I don't have to go out and buy new batteries. A full battery life lasts a couple of hours so I can literally use it from morning to night. I highly recommend this!" —Mitchell

    26. A drain snake with over 4,000 micro hooks and a slim design to shimmy down any drain (you don't even need to remove the cover) and snag all the hairs and goop that's clogging the system — in one quick pull. Next time, just buy a Tubshroom to prevent this even in the first place.

    amazon.com

    Real talk: after learning about this, I ordered two and used it on my bathroom sink and shower. HOLY KAMOLE does it work. So gross, so effective.

    Promising review: "I bought one of these because of the reviews and I thought, with six kids I know we have slow drains. So I break it out on a Saturday night and started with my bathroom sink. OH MY GOSH! Disgustingly amazing. In two seconds I pulled out a massive hair/soap clog. It was truly amazing and so gross! I went to work on the other bathroom drains and they weren't nearly as amazing or as quick but I pulled a bunch of dried hair out of the kids' tub. So after five drains, I had my fun. I've spent a small fortune on Drano type products that never seem to work. I won't buy them again. I was even so amazed I shared the nasty pic on Facebook and didn't think twice about somebody judging me. Get this. Be prepared to throw it away as you're not going to want to clean it." —Jennifer R. Little

    Get it from Amazon for $5.28.

    27. A microfiber cloth to remove every single trace of dirt and makeup (even waterproof formulas!) with just water and in ONE swipe, so you can get to bed STAT without breaking out 1,000 different makeup removers, cleansers, etc.

    Amazon

    And the cloths are super soft, so you won't have to resort to harsh scrubbing that can dry out your face.

    Promising review: "This product... I have no clue how this works, but it does! Let me start by saying I was wearing a full face of make up. I mean foundation, contour highlight, eyeliner, seriously the whole nine yards. All I did was wet it and wiped my face, my jaw literally dropped. This is hands down my favorite make up remover at the moment. The best part is that they are reusable so you don't have to keep buying those expensive disposables that leave your face feeling greasy. And honestly, four dollars? Just buy them. Trust me, you won't regret it." —Heather and Ryne Griffith

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $4.32.

    28. A Zipuller for those mornings where your reaching around the back to zip up that dress but simply CANNOT. Leave your roommate alone — you can handle things now.

    Amazon

    Just attach, step in, and zip!

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

    Promising review: "I live alone so one of the biggest troubles I have is zipping up dresses by myself. I tried this product and it works great! I tried it with both small zippers and large zippers. As long as it can loop through the hole, the Zipuller can grip it. Plus, the grip is pretty sturdy and does not become loose when you pull it up. Never has this task been easier! I am so happy that I purchased it and I recommend that you do too!" —Cherie Weissman

    29. A Migrastil roll-on stick to help evaporate your migraine or tension headache within minutes. Just apply the blend of essential oils (including lavender, spearmint, and peppermint) onto your temples, forehead, and the back of your neck — and POOF! Relief is here.

    BuzzFeed / Katy Herman

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    Check out a BuzzFeeder's review to learn more about why she loves this!

    30. A compact hook so you can keep your nice handbag off the floor, whether you're in the car or in a restroom with no hook (ugh don't you hate when that happens?!).

    amazon.com

    You can even use it on a grocery cart so you don't sacrifice space in that top section.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.95 (available in five colors).

    Promising review: "I LOVE the Clipa. I can get my purse off my lap or the floor and hang it from just about anything, a table, rail, fence or at the movies from the drink cup holder. I have already given them to several friends. My husband has a silver one on his backpack, it’s great at the airport when the bathrooms don’t have a hook on the door. The Clipa is awesome!" —Carrie

    31. A pair of soft silicone grips to keep your glasses from slipping off your face when you look down. This is one of those inventions that makes you think "Well why didn't I think of that?!"

    Amazon

    Reviewers note they'll keep your glasses comfier too!

    Get a set of five pairs from Amazon for $6.99 (available in clear, grey, and black).

    Promising review: "Finally the solution to my issue. My eyeglasses would always dig into the back of my ear on one side, not to mention they would slip down my nose from time to time. Tried a different pair of guards and they just did not do the job. Purchased these and what a difference, my glasses have never fit better, and oftentimes I forget to take them off they're so comfortable. Best purchase decision EVER." —Andrea Lincoln

    32. A bottle of Poo-Pourri you (and your guests) will be so happy to have on top of the porcelain throne. No one will know you just dropped a big stinker, because this makes the worst bathroom odors a thing of the past — without a weird and heavy "masking" smell.

    amazon.com

    Just spray *before* you go — the natural blend of essential oils and other ingredients creates a barrier so odors can't escape the bowl. We're not masking odors, we're keeping them from happening *in the first place*.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.39 (available in 20 scents and seven different bottle sizes).

    Promising review: "One bathroom in an apartment just isn't enough for two adults with a healthy colon. Enter Poo-Pourri. As this was the first time trying the product, I tried the original scent. It has an amazing lemon scent. It is very fresh and not overpowering. It is not synthetic smelling. With most room sprays, you end up just smelling flowery poo. This masks the smell completely. I can walk in the bathroom 30 seconds after my boyfriend and only smell lemon." —Alison H.

    33. A pack of bamboo charcoal blotting sheets to banish that afternoon forehead grease — you're glowing, but not oily!

    Promising review: "I have been searching for something as effective as this for a long time now. I have extremely oily skin. I live in the Caribbean and whether I wear foundation or not, very early in the day my face is covered in oil. Mostly over my T-zone is where I get shiny and oily. So I tried this and it is excellent. It picks up the oil quickly leaving my face naturally matte-like for hours. I am well pleased with the light weight of the sheets, the pack fits perfectly in my purse or jeans pockets. I have no dislikes. I will stock up on it." —Melisa

    34. A lavender and chamomile aromatherapy mist to spray on everything and make your bedroom a ~Cave of Slumbers~ when you're staring up at the ceiling at 2:47 a.m. and chanting "GO TO SLEEP!"

    Amazon

    It's made with all natural essential oils that'll help you feel calm and relaxed as you breathe it in. Spray it on blankets, pillows, clothes — you can even spray it on yourself!

    Get it from Amazon for $14.20.

    Promising review: "This product is great. I spray it on my pillow at night and it helps me relax into sleep rather than toss and turn. It is also a nice fragrance around the house. So happy that I tried this. I am very pleased!" —Martha N.

    Or if acne struggles are also a concern, try a pillow spray designed to kill zit-causing bacteria so you don't have to change out your pillowcases as often. AND, thanks to its soothing lavender scent, you'll be off to a solid dose of beauty sleep in no time.

    35. 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!

    BuzzFeed / Maitland Quitmeyer

    After taking a higher dose of melatonin a few times in college and having some fun and INTENSELY VIVID NIGHTMARES, I recently tried these instead. The lower dose of melatonin and the other ingredients have definitely help me get drowsy faster.

    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.

    Get a jar of 50 gummies from Amazon for $12.88 (also available in larger quantities).

    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

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

    Promising review: "This smells so great. I recently rescued a dog. I love him, but not how he makes my house smell. This really does kill the odor long after you extinguish it. I can't wait to try more scents. I even bought the Pet House car fresheners." —Claws0617
