    1. A dozen Bottle Bright tablets that'll deep clean 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

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug — I tried everything. Bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. It grossed me out so much that I bought ANOTHER HydroFlask to replace it. Now eventually they both got black inside, so I tried these little magic tablets. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY, without even scrubbing. They look brand new. What a magical product. No weird smell or taste afterward, either. I liked it so much I used it on another HydroFlask I use primarily to hold my Bloody Mary mix in the fridge. I couldn't put anything else in it because it would always taste like spicy tomato juice. Bottle Bright to the rescue! No residual smell or taste anymore. AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING." —Amazon Customer

    2. A Makeup Eraser microfiber cloth to remove every single trace of dirt and makeup (even waterproof formulas!) with just water. And the cloths are super soft, so you won't have to resort to harsh scrubbing that can dry out your face.

    BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "This thing is serious magic. if you’re familiar with LipSense products, you know they don’t leave your face unless you want them to. The lip color and liner especially are like spackle, which I LOVE!! They never budge!! This cloth removes ALL OF IT. From basic easy off makeup all the way up to the industrial strength should-pay-rent-on-your-face stuff — WITH JUST WATER. I was skeptical but I’m a believer. scrubbing is NOT abrasive, and I’m no longer using harsh products to remove my face!!" —Amber Liz

    Get it from Amazon for $20 (available in pink, purple, light blue, white, navy, turquoise, and red).

    Aaaand by the way, this won best mid-price makeup remover on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    3. A nail file board for puppies who hate getting their nails trimmed. Now you *both* can DIY your own mani-pedis right at home. Your wooden floors are breathing a sigh of relief.

    ScratchPadforDogs / Etsy

    ScratchPad for Dogs is a small biz based in Atlanta.

    Promising review: "Love this scratch pad! We adopted our dog almost a year ago and he's been terrified of clippers and grinders since day one. We've never been able to maintain his nails due to his super reactive anxiety around nail care. That's all changed since we got the Scratch Pad a few weeks ago! He took to it right away and his nails have shown significant improvement in just a few sessions!" —Kira Armajani

    Get it from ScratchPad for Dogs on Etsy for $41.95+ (available in two styles and three grit levels).

    4. A spider and insect catcher that'll keep pests in its clutches without smushing them so you can bring them outside where they belong.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I was skeptical when I ordered this, but I have a husband who makes bug splats on my walls and I needed something to stop that. This thing actually works!! I have always been a catch and release person when it comes to indoor bugs but this makes it so much easier. I love it." —Island Gal

    Get it from Amazon for $21.95+ (available in three colors).

    5. 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, Amazon

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

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    6. 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.

    amazon.com

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

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

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $19.99.

    7. A wine-aerating spout that'll help your three-buck chuck breathe and open up, helping the individual flavors and ~nuances~ of the wine be more apparent — even to beginner wine palates.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I am not a wine specialist, but I know what I like and buy very good wine at very reasonable prices. I did a taste test to see if I could notice a difference. Sipped some wine out of the bottle left to breathe for a couple of minutes; then some wine poured through the aerator and sipped immediately. The difference is VERY NOTABLE, even to my untrained palate. The wine tasted fresher, smoother, less harsh and more flavorful! I no longer drink reds without using these. And if I forget, I pour the wine back in the bottle and attach the aerator. Another nice feature? There are no wine drops coming down the side of the aerator, so no more risk of dripping onto a tablecloth or a shirt." —J. Long

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $12.95.

    8. Suguru, a self-setting rubber with the power to fix just about anything from dishwashers to iPhone cords.

    youtube.com

    You can fix fraying wires, hang pictures (without a nail), create ergonomic grips on tools, and soooooo much more.

    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!).

    Promising review: "Amazing product that I used to install multiple hooks on my bathroom tile wall. Very strong with a long set time so easy to use and get an accurate placement. Love this product!" —Brenda

    Get an eight-pack from Amazon for $16.99+.

    9. An exfoliating bar of soap reviewers with KP (aka keratosis pilaris) swear by to get rid of those tiny red bumps.

    The bar of soap
    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $15.95.

    Promising review: "Excellent for KP! I use on my entire body every time I shower (NOT on my face) and my skin has NEVER felt smoother all over! One 8oz bar lasts me an entire month! I even liked the bar so much that I recommended it to my dermatologist!! I HIGHLY recommend! I have had KP on my arms ever since I can remember and have literally tried everything- this is the best option since it doesn’t stain, provides immediate results, and I can pack it with me to take anywhere when I shower!! Also it’s great for the bottoms of your feet to get rid of dead skin- better than a pumice stone!!" —Amazon Customer

    10. A neck pillow you can get now and dream about using it in all your future travels. Twist into several different positions so you can get actual rest — without your head bobbing up and down.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Have wanted a travel pillow forever! Took a chance on this. Oh my gosh it’s amazing! It forms to my neck and no matter which way I turn my head, I can fall asleep instantly. This is so much better than standard travel pillows. One of my best Amazon purchases to date!" —Lauren Grubb

    Get it from Amazon for $29.97 (available in five colors).

    11. A bottle of Chamberlain's Leather Milk conditioner that'll 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.

    Get it from Amazon for $27.95 (or try the smaller bottle for $16.95). Check out their cleaners, protectants, and conditioners for specific items in the same listing!

    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

    12. A cleaning putty to easily (and kind of fun-ly!) clean your car air conditioner vents, laptop keyboard, cupholders, remote buttons, and any other tricky little areas where dust and crumbs accumulate when you have a few spare moments.

    Promising review: "Everyone needs this product!! This gel is very easy to use and picks up even the smallest trash. It is a thick gel but fits in the hard-to-reach spots! I recommend it :)" –Alma Lopez

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    13. A pair of leakproof trunks with a floating absorbent gusset (with space for pad wings!) to keep you dry and comfortable, whether you're using them as backup protection or full coverage.

    The black trunks with logo waistband
    TomboyX

    Promising review: "BEST PURCHASE I'VE EVER MADE, PROBABLY. I bought this underwear the day it was released. I don't usually buy anything off clearance, but I made an exception for period-proof underwear that isn't panties/briefs. I figured these would be worth $30 apiece for being a shape that won't set off my brain's gender alarms. These are so much nicer even than just that. I no longer get pad wedgies. My reusable fabric pads no longer slide around randomly (the floating gusset holds everything in place nicely). The gusset doesn't get twisted, doesn't chafe, nothing like that. Everything stays exactly where I need it to be, even when I'm asleep. The only downside -- the fabric is a little thinner than I expected. I'd only ordered bras from TomboyX before, so I didn't realize how lightweight the underwear is. It's comfortable and it's fully opaque, so it's not really an issue, just an observation. Time will tell how these hold up to repeated wearing, washing, stain removing, etc., but I have high hopes since the overall design is really effective" —E.

    Get them from TomboyX for $32 (available in sizes 3XS–6X and five colors).

    TomboyX is a queer-owned business founded by Fran and Naomi, with the mission of creating comfy, gender-neutral underwear and loungewear

    14. 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.

    A reviewer's feet mid-peel
    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

    Get it from Amazon for $25.

    15. 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, Amazon

    I use these myself and they get the JOB DONE.

    Get the kit (one wand and six scrubbers) from Amazon for $14.99 — and get a 30-pack of scrubber refills from Amazon for $14.23)

    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

    16. And hey, if you're wanting to clean that toilet but are *also* looking to go greener, a set of toilet cleaning bombs you can drop in, watch the ~fizzing action~ and then scrub away with your usual toilet brush.

    The most delightful part? They're called ~Johnny Drops~. AND you can use them for sinks, tubs, and garbage disposals too!

    Get a pack of five from Juniperseed Mercantile on Etsy for $10 (or buy 'em individually for $2.50).

    Promising review: "This product is amazing! Fifteen minutes later and my toilet is looking brand-new with minimal effort. I would recommend this to everyone!" —shelby rieth

    17. A pair of copper-infused arch supports with compression to help relieve foot pain, whether you have fallen arches, plantar faciitis, or just spend all day on your feet.

    A reviewer's feet with the bands on
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have been using these for about a week now, and I cannot tell you how much they have HELPED with plantar fasciitis. It is nothing short of amazing. I didn't realize that these also act as an arch support until I wore them. Nothing but praise from me. I have spent soooo much $$ on foot remedies, and was skeptical about these little elastic bands, but this has to be the best product I have purchased in years! I have already ordered another pair just to be sure I have them on hand !! AAA+++ product !" —remzy

    Get them from Amazon for $13.95.

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

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

    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.

    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

    19. A Bearaby 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. *And* this chunky knit looks straight out of an interior design mag!

    The white cotton knit blanket on a sofa
    Bearaby

    If you're really worried about overheating, it also comes in a cooling version made out of Tencel.

    I have this in the cooling version (in the color "avocado") and let's just say I've used it quite a bit in recent times. The large knit style is super chic, and the organic cotton is breathable (and there's nothing in it to create the weight *other* than cotton, so no uncomfy glass beads). I *love* it, and it's actually extremely cute, looking like a regular old fancy blanket! It's heavy, but still I take it from bed to couch and back to bed all the time as I WFH. It doesn't overheat on the couch (thanks to the fabric and the "holes" in the large knit), but provides a pleasant weight as I watch TV or work. And when it's layered over my duvet, it keeps me extra cozy and warm.

    Get it from Bearaby for $249+ (available in three weights and nine colors).

    Promising review: "I love this napper a little too much. I carry it up and down stairs all day as I move between the bed and couch for crafting, reading, etc. I like to grasp onto something when I sleep (usually the edge of the pillowcase), so the loops are awesome for tucking in my fingers and toes. Unlike another weighted blanket I own, the napper is stylish so I don't mind if it's out in the living room, and I can wash it, a huge deal given how often it's used. It's a bit of a pain to dry (it took three cycles in the dryer, so next time I am going to hand dry). The weight is very comforting, and I don't have an issue with overheating, even using it in the middle of summer in a muggy climate." —Madeline B.

    20. A pair of Rubbermaid produce-saving containers that'll regulate the flow or oxygen and carbon dioxide, keeping fruit, veggies, and greens fresh for 80% longer... and saving you money.

    I recently got a couple of these and a bunch of basil and strawberries stayed fresh for SO LONG!!

    Promising review: "These things really work. I use spinach in a smoothie daily. The bottom of the box usually had to be thrown out. I now use every bit. Same goes for my wife's blueberries. We eat salads every night and the lettuce is fresh and crisp down to the last piece." —Jim A.

    Get the set of three from Amazon for $68.85.

    21. Grooming gloves designed with nodules on the fingers and palms to make brushing the excess hair from your cat, dog, or even horse more like petting.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love these gloves. I have three German shepherds that shed constantly and they do not sit still very well, but with these gloves they feel as if they are being petted and don't mind at all. These gloves easily pick up the loose hair and leave my dogs sleek and shiny. Also it is very easy to just shake the hair off the gloves. You don't have to dig the hair out of the grooves like you do with some brushes. I am so happy to have found these." —Margie

    Get them from Amazon for $24.99 (available in sizes S–XL).

    22. A bottle of No Pore-Blem primer to smooth out the canvas of your skin pre-foundation, diminishing the look of pores and uneven skin — all while protecting and adding moisture, thanks to collagen and green tea extract!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I wanted to give this product 10 stars.. But was only limited to 5. This stuff is AMAZING!!!! I'm almost 30, and my face has become super oily... Like I can fry chicken on it by the end of the day. So for months I've neglected wearing any kind of foundation or makeup in general. After reading reviews I figured I would give this a try. The glow it gives you is AWESOME!!! it makes my skin so soft.... I'm probably going to wear just this and no foundation 50% of the time. I went for it and did my whole face and ladies.. You know that could mean several steps of products...After the Ttexas heat...And the sun..And amounts of sweat. My face was PERFECT......STILL! No oil... No smears... No pores... This is literally sent from heaven!!!! My ONLY dislike is the fact that you cant purchase this in five-gallon buckets!" —Jessica

    Get a pack of two bottles from Amazon for $29.99.

    23. Fenty Stunna Lip Paint, a 12-hour liquid lipstick specifically designed to look good on lit'rally everyone! Seriously, just check out the product photos and reviews.

    Sephora

    Thank you, RIhanna!

    Promising review: "Wow. My new favorite lip color!! I ate three meals today and it stayed completely on all day. It truly is a great color for all skin tones. It's so lightweight when you wear it and also very matte. Would highly recommend!" —Crystal Cas

    Get it from Sephora for $24 (also available in snine shades).

    24. 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~.

    An HDMI switcher with a bright blue light before, and very dimmed light after
    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.

    25. Biossance Squalene and Peptide eye gel, which reduces the appearance of puffiness and under eye circles with just a pea-size amount. Its niacinamide-rich formula is lightweight but reviewers say it makes a *visible* difference.

    The pump bottle of gel
    Biossance

    Promising review: "I was a bit skeptical that an eye gel would actually do all the things they claim, and actually make a visible difference. I use this every morning as part of my morning routine, and the efficacy can be seen in real time! I use it as a morning ritual to give my eyes some self-care massage, and my eyes feel and looked more nourished, awake, and the skin around my eyes are smoother." —Margarita

    Get it from Biossance for $54.

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

    Grease Bags

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

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

    27. A red wine stain remover that'll turn any one-person party foul into an amazing trick in a few quick sprays.

    youtube.com

    It's non-toxic and bleach free — working at the ~molecular~ level to break up stains for easy removal. I love science, don't you?

    Promising review: "It did pass my first test! I did not expect to use this product a couple of days after I received it. Had a spill of red over one of my favorite shirts. I did try to remove the most dramatic area with water and soap right away; then I let this product sink in for half hour before washing and voilà it was all gone!" —Gerson Melgar

    Get it from Amazon for $7.95.

    28. A pair of wine glasses with markings so you can play a full A-major scale just by running your finger around the rim.

    Get a set of two from Uncommon Goods for $68.

    29. A Feed n Wax Wood conditioner that'll not only polish your pieces but ALSO basically erase years of damage (looking at you, drink rings), bring out the natural color and sheen of your pieces — whether the wood is finished or unfinished — *and* add a layer of protection.

    All you have to do is apply with a cloth, wait 20 minutes (perfect time for a mid-cleaning snack!) and wipe off the excess.

    Promising review: "OMG! This is the most AMAZING product! We inherited some antique furniture from the '30s that had been in storage forever... it was dry and dirty and not much to look at. I used this product on it and the oak wood literally came alive showing the beautiful grain and texture of the wood. I have since used it on my oak kitchen cabinets and they look AMAZING! I will never use anything else other than this product on my wood surfaces! No greasy feel... fantastic smell!" —Tiffany Sadowski

    Get it from Amazon for $8.48.

    30. A one-handed bottle opener for quickly removing beer tops — *without* bending the edges.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "My husband says this is the greatest beer bottle opener ever. Hate struggling to crack open your beer, well now you don't have to! In one quick squeeze, it's all over with and you're enjoying your beer. And it's a magnet, so it will never get lost in the drawer." —4eva

    Get it from Amazon for $16 (available in several colors).

    31. A jar of cult-status Aztec Secret Healing Clay Mask that'll deep clean your pores, ~pulsating~ as it works its magic and banishes the toughest acne.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "If you’re looking for raw honesty, here it is. I have had cystic acne on and off for years. I’ve spent hundreds of dollars getting facials, on various acne medication, you name it — I have probably tried it. Benzyl peroxide does a good job at killing acne causing bacteria and reducing stubborn blemishes, but nothing has helped to shrink my pores (not even Clinique’s fancy pore scrub) until this! Let me warn you. It will not cure your skin over night. It’s going to take 2-3 times to really see improvement. Your skin will feel tight and be red for 30 minutes- 1 hour afterwards. It’s not always comfortable. I apply moisturIzer soon after and that helps. I wish I had found this sooner. It has even taken away those stubborn little bumps that are superficial (they never come to a head, just pus trapped under the skin). NOTHING has been able to do that until now. Don’t waste your time and money - buy this!! You won’t regret it!" —Brendon Jelenc

    Get a one-pound jar from Amazon for $12.90.

    32. An ergonomically-designed detangling brush with cone-shaped bristles that separate tangles by pulling them apart sideways, not tugging them down. Reviewers say it's a miracle worker for everything from thick, coily hair to the finest strands!

    Promising review: "I always skeptical of products that claim to 'glide through,' but this brush actually works! I have very thick kinky coily hair and this brush passes through my hair easily both wet and dry. I'd recommend this product to anyone looking for a good detangling brush. And yes, I'm leaving my Denman brush for this one." —Amazon Customer

    33. A Vivienne Sabó mascara reviewers swear by to majorly lengthen and thicken their lashes. When someone asks you what mascara you use, you can just say "Oh, it's French."

    amazon.com

    It's cruelty-free, smudge-proof, and removes easily at the end of the day with water.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    Promising review: "I never write reviews for things, but this mascara was just so great I felt like I had to! I love lashes, and my friends are used to me wearing thick coats of mascara at all times. Despite this, I got complimented on my lashes basically every time I wore this mascara this week. Multiple people even asked if I had extensions! This mascara isn't clumpy at all, and makes your lashes super long and defined without sticking them together. I've never had any problems with flaking, and although it isn't waterproof, I've definitely used eyedrops, shed a tear, and gotten stuck in rain without them smudging or running down my face. All in all this is my new holy grail mascara, and I'm thrilled!!" —Sophie Johnson

    34. And 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.

    A before/after of a reviewer's lashes, looking much fuller and longer after
    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 much longer — when I use this they grow long enough to brush my brow bone, which would never happen otherwise. At the end of last year, I tried a different lash product (after running out of Grande lash for a while because ::shrugs:: pandemic) and it did *nothing* after *weeks*of trying. Now I'm back on the Grande lash for 5-6 weeks now and my lashes are already significantly longer. It just works, my friends.

    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

    35. 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!).

    BuzzFeed, 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

    36. A seven-in-one Instant Pot you've probably heard a lot about — for a good reason. Or rather a good seven reasons: It slow cooks, pressure cooks, makes rice, sautés, makes yogurt, and keeps food warm. Bye bye other appliances!

    Promising review: "I cannot believe how amazing this product is, I've been writing all over FB about it and encouraged get my friends to invest in one. We live in a small apartment that heats up quick with use of the oven, this baby saves us energy on and time! I cooked a pretty good size roast in about 45 minutes. Which would usually take 4-5 hours in the oven. Yeah, I'm in love. I really didn't think it was possibly for this machine to be as great as it claims, but it really is! It's WORTH IT. Don't hesitate, take the step forward this awesome investment." —Amanda D.

    Promising review: "Can't say enough good things about this product. I have a family of four and would frequently have to snake our shower drain, it appears I won't be having that problem ever again. I even give my dog baths and this collects the hair. It does not seem to slow down the flow of water down the drain significantly. I'm very impressed having been using around a month. You don't know how much hair you wash down your drain until you use this!" —Aaron Morlock

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in six colors).

    38. A wine saver that'll remove the air from your open bottle of wine, then seal it with a stopper, so you can enjoy the rest of it later — and it'll still taste fresh!

    Amazon, youtube.com

    Promising review: "I'll admit i was a little skeptical about this but bought it due to all of the good reviews and research I did. It seemed almost too simple, if that makes sense. But yes, it really is that easy to work it and you definitely hear the clicks when you're got it sealed up. It is very easy to take the stopper back out as well. I highly recommend this. I also don't think it would be too hard for someone with arthritis, since you can grip the handle on the unit well and even the last pump or two it doesn't take too much force." —Celinenme

    Get a vacuum sealer, plus two stoppers from Amazon for $17.99.

    39. A bottle of Glossier Solution, an easy-to-use exfoliant chockfull of promising acids (AHA, BHA, and PHA, oh my!) that reduce acne and dark spots, brighten, improve skin tone and texture, unclog pores, exfoliate, and reduce signs of stress. Like, that's a lot of stuff.

    Promising review: "I have had acne for as long as I can remember and Solution has SAVED my skin. Haven't had a pimple since I started using this last month. My usually oily skin has been so soft and glowing and my years of acne scars are vanishing. 100% worth every penny." —MRB

    We *also* love this product — learn why several BuzzFeed writers love it in our Glossier Solution review.

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

    A before/after of black mold being removed from bathroom tile grout
    amazon.com

    It clings to tile, meaning it'll STAY PUT, killing mold & mildew and keeping it from reappearing later down the road. This before & after was taken just THREE hours apart, after just leaving it alone!

    Promising review: "Didn’t think it would work, but it DID with no scrubbing!! My husband didn’t think our grout was originally white, but I knew better. I put this on before bed on a section of grout in the shower, and woke up to gorgeous and bright white, no scrubbing at all the next morning. Just rinse it off. Absolutely buying another bottle. It wasn’t quite enough for my entire shower, but to be fair, we have a lot of small tiles. I think 2 bottles will get the whole shower floor. Bravo on a great product." —thekuan

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

    The candle in lavender green tea
    Amazon

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

    Promising review: "I have multiple dogs in the house and am always concerned that it smells like that to visitors even cleaning everyday. I have use other candles and melts that add a pleasant smell to the underlying odor, but One Fur All Pet House Candles do better. I have been able to leave the house for hours and when I first open the door, on my return, I don't smell dog. We recently had a house full of people (many of them pet parents) over for Christmas dinner and it was actually commented 'Your house smells really nice. How do you keep the dog smell out?' I laughed and told them I was just wondering if the candles were working. I guess I got the BEST answer." —LLL Texas

    42. 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.

    youtube.com

    It has over 50,000 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

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

    Promising review: "I thought this stuff was a bunch of BS, I was like pssh what a waste of $8 ON AMAZON FOR THIS LITTLE THING. Well, I put it on today on spots where my flats rub off the skin. My feet survived an entire day, INTACT! Highly recommend. This product made wearing shoes that rub on your ankles/backs of your feet doable!!!!" —Jamie

    45. A set of silicone egg poachers with perforated cups to mimic the traditional poaching method (aka swirling water around and around) without having to do any work — and so your egg stays perfectly round and never wisps away.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "FINALLY! My long search is over for a solution that really works! The eggs poach perfectly! The process involves simply dropping an egg into the poacher and waiting a few minutes for the desired level of firmness — no stirring the water to create a vortex or messing with the egg during cooking! This means that when you need to cook for several guests, multiple poachers can be used to prepare as many eggs as needed at the same time! There was even a handy chart with suggested poaching times which is dead-on accurate. Cleanup is a breeze! I am ordering another set and won't poach any other way than with Good Grips. My only negative comment is that I will probably eat way more Eggs Benedict than I should now that it is so easy to prepare the eggs!" —JoeBT

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $9.93.

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

    The storage container-like cooker, which can fit long spaghetti
    Amazon

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

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    47. A drain clearing tool with a rotating handle and five replacement snakes with 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, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I don’t write many reviews, but when something blows my mind like this, I have to! Not only did this remove an enormous amount of hair from my drain, it took less than 30 seconds to do so! I didn’t really read the instructions, but it’s pretty straightforward. Stuck it in the drain, cranked the handle, pulled it out. Voila, no more hair! Buy it! You won’t be disappointed." —Linsey Barbieri
