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

    amazon.com

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

    Promising review: "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 1970's 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

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

    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 $7.89.

    3. A jar of O'Keefe'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 4 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 $7.99.

    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 $8.14.

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

    amazon.com

    AND it's cruelty-free and the bottle is made from recycled plastic.

    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.

    5. A set of scratch-off cityscapes for a whole new level beyond adult coloring books. A whole nighttime world is about to be revealed with just a few scratches.

    amazon.com

    These are just like those rainbow scratch-off sheets you (and I) loved as a kid, but WAY cooler. Just follow along the guide lines to reveal the glowing cityscape with the included tools.

    Promising review: "Loved this, you can work on this over a long period which is what I like, & have it to work on for some time. Came with a few tools and a brush to sweep off the scratched residue. I enjoyed it very much and have bought many other etch paintings from amazon that are just as nice! Highly recommend this one and the others!" —Heather

    Get them from Amazon for $12.79+ (available in singles, multipacks and in several cityscapes).

    6. 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!

    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.

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

    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 2-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.

    8. 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 $13.45.

    9. A super bitter-tasting clear polish that'll help you finally quit that nail-biting habit so your fingernails can grow long and strong. Time to treat yourself to 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 $15.50.

    10. 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

    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).

    11. 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 $19.90+ (available in two sizes).

    12. 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 2nd 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 $12.99.

    13. 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.

    14. 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.

    15. Essence's Lash Princess mascara, which over *120,000* five-star reviewers swear by for dramatic length and volume *without* clumps, thanks to the flake- and gob-free formula and cone-shaped brush.

    amazon.com

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

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    16. And to boost lashes longterm, Grande Cosmetics' lash serum that, with a one-minute nightly application, can help your lashes grow to their full potential, looking longer and fuller in just a few weeks.

    amazon.com

    I use this religiously and notice a huuuge difference. I have allergies and tend to rub my eyes, which isn't great for my lashes, but this serum seriously helps with fallout and helps my lashes look and grow much longer — when I use this they grow long enough to brush my brow bone, which would never happen otherwise.

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

    Get a three-month supply from Amazon for $65.

    17. 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.

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    18. 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.

    19. 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 60,000 five-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

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    20. 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 reviews: "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

    Get it from Amazon for $8.

    And check out the BuzzFeeder pictured above's review for her first-hand experience (it's #1 in the post)!

    21. 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

    Get the kit (one wand and six scrubbers) from Amazon for $7.96 — and get a 30-pack of scrubber refills from Amazon for $13.25)

    22. 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.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.51.

    23. A pack of Miracle-Gro plant food *spikes* jam-packed with micronutrients to make keeping your green children thriving *actually* easy. These'll revive and nourish all the flowering or foliage plants you've alllllllmost killed — even if they already look like they've seen better days.

    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

    Get a pack of 24 spikes from Amazon for $2.99.

    24. A Revlon one-step drying brush with a unique oval-shaped barrel so you can get super close to your scalp for smooth hair and majorly boosted volume at the roots, without having to juggle a brush and blow-dryer.

    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 $39.89+ (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! You can get it from Amazon for $39.99. Reviewers say it's the best thing they've ever bought.

    25. 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

    Get it from Amazon for $74.99.

    26. A bottle of cold-pressed castor oil reviewers swear by to nourish their scalps, strengthening and promoting hair growth at the root. Just apply it directly to you dry scalp and hair roots and leave it on for at least an hour (or overnight!).

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I had an allergy in my scalp last 10 months ago that made the back of my head bald. I was really desperate to try some hair growing product to bring my hair back. I read most of the articles on Google and found out castor oil is one of the greatest products for hair growing, but there are lots of castor oil brands. I tried this product because of the good reviews, and ingredients because my scalp was really sensitive. And I didn’t expect the outcome of this product. And aside from the outcome, my hair became softer than before and thicker, and one bottle of this castor oil lasted almost a year." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $17.95.

    27. 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 $9.50+ (available in three formulas).

    28. Or a jar of cult-status Aztec Secret Healing Clay Mask to deep clean your pores, ~pulsating~ as it works its magic and banishes the toughest acne.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Wow. Just wow. I had no expectations for this product since I've been dealing with cystic acne since I was a teenager (I'm 24 now), so I went into this purchase not expecting much. I have very sensitive, reactive skin and have never seen any real improvement. After reading all the crazy reviews about this product I figured I would give it a try, again, not expecting much. However, I have been blown away by the long-term results of using this mask. I mix it with apple cider vinegar and apply it several times a week when my skin is really bad, and it has never done anything negative to my skin – no irritation, no dryness, nothing. It always destroys every single pimple that emerges. It does bring underlying pimples to a head, and that can be a little disturbing at first, but it is so worth it for the end result. I was considering taking Accutane, a very strong and dangerous medicine, to finally cure my acne for good, and this product has made me completely reconsider." —Heather E.

    29. An easy-to-use jewelry cleaning brush for polishing up your brand new or decades-old precious stones and keep them as sparkling as your love still is (awww!).

    amazon.com

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

    Promising review: "Don't get me wrong — my wedding ring was gorgeous before. It did sparkle and still made me smile every day. However...after using this..*oh my goodness*! After one use of the Diamond Dazzle Stik..my ring is absolutely breathtaking! I knew my ring got dirty now and then, simply from sweating and being outside in the elements. However, I never realized just how much dinge and schmutz marred my beautiful diamond until I cleaned it. It literally took my breath away with its fiery, dazzling brilliance! My wedding ring is something that always makes my heart beat a little faster: for its beauty, for what it represents...and now, my smile is even bigger and my heart skips a beat a little more as I gaze upon this amazing clarity. It is an amazing value with mind-blowing, beautiful results!" —liltreeclimber

    30. 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

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    31. 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

    32. 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

    These photos above are four days apart, btw!

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

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

    amazon.com

    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

    Get the set of two tools from Amazon for $7.95.

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

    amazon.com

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

    Get it from Amazon for $6.98 (available in four colors).

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

    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

    36. A toothbrush-esque power scrubber with replaceable heads that'll put in some electronic elbow grease so you don't have to wear out your arms.

    amazon.com

    It comes with a 1/2" general cleaning brush head, but you can also buy a 1" head and a specialized grout-cleaning head!

    Promising review: "I always thought things like this were silly; surely a little elbow grease will get any job done, right? nope! I fell madly in love with this brush the second I used it! Sure it's a bit loud, but my gleaming white grout in my bathroom totally negates it. I've since discovered so so many things I can clean with this. There's nooks and crannies all over my apartment (built in 1890!) that I never thought would be clean... but a few minutes after letting this bad boy loose on it, everything was squeaky clean! Also a huge help to those of us who are disabled!!" —Crystal

    Get it from Amazon for $19.40.

    37. A carpet cleaning and deodorizing solution you can use with a steam cleaner for a ridiculous level of deep clean.

    amazon.com

    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.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97+ (available in two sizes).

    38. 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 ten 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

    Get the kit from Amazon for $44.99.

    39. Drawer dividing boxes for all your delicates and more. No more choosing a pair of underwear and messing up the whole carefully-folded system!

    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

    40. 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

    41. A foot filing rasp that'll undo years of callus buildup in mere MINUTES. No waiting for intense creams to do their work, no getting pedicure after pedicure — if you want to see results ASAP, you'll think it's ~grate~.

    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

    42. 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 min 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

    43. An apple cider vinegar shampoo and conditioner set to treat both your hair *and* your scalp, removing product buildup, softening & strengthening your strands, and hydrating with avocado and coconut oils.

    amazon.com

    Look, ma — no dandruff, all shine!

    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

    44. 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

    45. A hard water stain cleaner reviewers swear by to banish the peskiest dried water stains and soap scum from glass shower doors, faucets, tiles, you name it.

    amazon.com

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $29.97.

    46. A bottle of Fanola purple shampoo formulated to neutralize yellow tones and brassiness for platinum locks — all in one to three minutes and *without* a trip to the salon

    amazon.com

    If you leave it in long enough, it'll even give a lavender tint, if you're into that!

    Promising review: "I'm not one to leave reviews, but this product deserves it! Holy cow! I was going to go into the salon to brighten my hair up, but after discovering this product I cancelled my appointment. I'm totally in love! This shampoo is not drying at all and just after two washes I achieved my desired results! I can't recommend it enough!" —Rachael

    47. A bottle of Tend Skin to stop ingrown hairs and skin irritation in their tracks, making it the perfect post-shaving product with a cult following for a reason.

    amazon.com

    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.

    48. A liquid-free, reusable rolling screen cleaner that'll clean your tablet, phone, laptop, and more once and for all — all during the commercial break of whatever you're streaming. You know when your screen goes dark and you're like "Oh wow, I'm disgusting!" That's over now.

    amazon.com

    Oh, is that just me?

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95.

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

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