    1. Ingeniously designed hair pins with a flocked (aka velvety) coating to hold every single strand without slipping E V E R.

    Amazon

    Get a pack of 20 pins from Amazon for $13.95 (available in five colors, plus sets of 100).

    Promising review: "Great pins for an updo. I like the fact that the pins have a coat on them that is the color of my hair and not shiny like most pins. I have shoulder length hair and I can only do a french twist because of the length of my hair. I watched a youtube video on the updo and when I tried it at home the pins fell out. Now with the coated pins they stay put and you cannot see them. They also hold the hair much better than any pins I have used in the past and they come in a variety of sizes. I am happy I bought them." —Colleen Mcdonald

    2. 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, amazon.com

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    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

    3. A microwave rice steamer to make burnt stovetop rice a thing of the past. Just add your grain, water, and pop in the micro! No pulling out a pot, waiting for it to boil, reducing to a simmer, or hovering around waiting to uncover a kitchen disaster.

    Amazon

    And unlike traditional plug-in rice cookers, you can throw this whole thing in the wash, so there's no potential for mold or other grossness.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    Promising review: "I've had this for seven months now, and I think it's still my favorite tool in my entire kitchen. I eat a ton of rice, and I love how easy this is to use and how easy it is to clean. I put in one cup of white rice and two cups of water, and microwave it for 15 minutes. It comes out consistent every time. In the past, I've cooked rice on the stove and used an electronic rice cooker, and I prefer this microwave one to both. I hated how messy cooking on the stove is, and my electric cooker got mold down inside the part that you can't wash. With this, there's no mess, and there's nowhere you can't clean or that can trap mold or bacteria. I can throw every part of it into the dishwasher after I'm done with it. It's awesome! I wish I'd had this back in college." —C. Stone

    4. A pack of Mighty Patch pimple patches so you don't have to hot compress, pop, ooze, scar, and repeat — these absorb pus and oil from *inside* the zit, protecting skin from further damage and reinfection.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Get a 36-pack from Amazon for $12.50.

    Promising review: "I'm obsessed with these things!!! I'm an esthetician, however, being in my twenties and having raging hormones has challenged my skin a lot. It's embarrassing showing up to work and having pimples meanwhile others are supposed to trust me with their skin. These are so fast acting and have save me a lot of time and money. Super fast acting, and it's amazing how it just sucks out the infection. It's perfect for those deep under the skin pimples as well, but it does take a few extra days. I will continue to repurchase!" —Julia Raye Todd

    5. 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

    Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $7.99.

    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

    6. A pair of plant-watering globes so your lil' green friends can drink to their leafy hearts' content.... you know, without *you* needing to actually remember to do it. Just fill with water once, and stick 'em in the soil.

    Amazon

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $7.99.

    Promising review: "These are great! The water lasts for days in a small planter...note that the larger the pot, they more frequently you'll have to refill them (naturally). I use them in my tiny elephant head planters because they're above my head and I make a mess if I try to water them by hand. I just ordered two more, and can't wait to get them! They are NOT hard to fill, you just have to leave the water at a very thin stream and be a little patient. Doesn't take more than a minute to fill each one, and worth the time." —The Reverend Mother SugrFingr

    7. A drain snake with over 4,000 micro hooks and a slim design to shimmy down any drain (you don't even need to remove the cover) and snag all the hairs and goop that's clogging the system — in one quick pull.

    Amazon, amazon.com

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

    Get it from Amazon for $5.28.

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

    8. A countertop Aerogarden so you can grow all the herbs you want (no backyard required). And thanks to the LED grow lights, plus a watering-reminding system, no green thumb required either.

    Macy's

    The grow lights are energy efficient (aka they turn on and off automatically), and it tells you when to water (and feed with the included Miracle Grow plant food!) your baby greens, so these herbs'll basically grow themselves. The system comes with seed pods to grow Genovese basil, curly parsley, dill, mint, thyme, and Thai basil. Y U M!

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $129.99 (originally $189.99; available in black and green).

    Promising review: "I love to cook, so the thought of having fresh herbs and veggies right on my kitchen counter was exciting. However, I had never had much success gardening. This new Goodful AeroGarden changed that for me. I made the best caprese salad I have ever eaten last week with some fresh basil from my garden. My kids actually enjoy helping me harvest and eat something green. It is freezing outside right now, but we still have fresh produce growing in our home! I can't believe it works this well. If you enjoy cooking or gardening, I would highly recommend." —FreshMom

    9. A Dash rapid cooker that'll make whipping up nutritious hardboiled eggs less...well...hard. No boiling water, no checking a timer. Just sit back and relax until the (very loud) alarm goes off — perfect eggs are ready!

    Amazon

    Just fill it with water (according to your chosen level of egg doneness), add up to six eggs, and turn on. When the eggs are done, it'll automatically shut off! Yes, you can take a nap while waiting for your eggs to boil — and not worry about leaving them on too long. The removable parts are also dishwasher safe, so get ready for this to be your new lazy best friend.

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

    Promising review: "If hard-boiled eggs are at all a part of your life, this device will change everything. Reclaim lost hours, catch up on missed TV, reconnect with old friends and family -—anything is possible with the free time you'll find at your disposal as you drop six eggs into this beast, press a button, and then walk away. What will you do? High-intensity exercise? Model building? Learn a second language? I hear your concern. 'What if I become so engrossed in my newfound love of taxonomy that I forget about my eggs?' Fear not, efficient chef. Like the trump of Gabriel himself, the unmistakable tone of this technological marvel could rouse the dead and will bring you running to your fresh-and-ready ova's side. The Dash Go Rapid Egg Cooker is what mankind has been working towards since the first roundish stone was shaped into a wheel. Witness the apex of human innovation!" —J. Mercer Crenshaw

    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, amazon.com

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

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    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

    11. A windshield cover so you can just ~peel off~ several inches of snowfall and get on the road already. Your neighbors are gonna be so jealous, standing there with their snow scrapers.

    Amazon

    It suction cups to your windshield and secures around your wheels for a snug fit that won't let any stray flakes underneath.

    Get it from Amazon for $26.95 (available in two sizes, one for most cars/CRVs and one for most SUVs/RVs/trucks, and two colors).

    Promising review: "This is the best thing I could have ever bought! I bought one for myself, my mom and my sister. New England just got slammed with a Noreaster, and let me tell you... this thing works! Because mine didn't budge. It only took about five minutes to put on my car, and like five seconds to get it off this morning. No snow or ice anywhere on the wiper well or windshield. I highly recommend this!" —Shelley

    12. An electric fabric defuzzer, because hand-picking all the pills off your favorite sweater in the middle of the office is not a cute look.

    Amazon, amazon.com

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

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

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

    Learn more about it in This Magical Fabric Defuzzer Will Absolutely Change Your Life.

    13. An exfoliating foot peel that'll make dead, dry, rough skin and calluses a distant memory. Just pop the mitts on your feet, 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

    The booties fit up to a men's size 11!

    Get a set of two pairs from Amazon for $15.95.

    Promising review: "This product is amazing, I must admit. I was skeptical — the liquidy substance in the "socks" seems innocuous, and for almost a week after I gave myself a treatment & wore the first pair of 'socks,' nothing happened. Then, seemingly out of the blue, my feet started peeling, and I mean really really peeling. In fact, I have spent the last two nights in front of the tv perversely enjoying peeling the skin from my feet, which comes off often in very large pieces. This is very satisfying for some reason. [hope this isn't TMI!] Anyway, I am now a true believer, and look forward to following the company's recommendation to use the second pair in the box for a subsequent treatment in about a week. I usually treat my calloused feet with an electric emery device, but this is much easier. Five stars for sure!" —g3 from the UP

    14. A waterproof, smudge-resistant eyeliner stamp with two sides: a triangular stamp on one end and a felt-tip eyeliner on the other to create the perfect winged liner look in no time flat, i.e., you'll never be late again!

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Get a two-pack (one for each eye) from Amazon for $12.99 (available in three sizes).

    Promising review: "I loved the product. I usually take 15 mins to do my eyeliner perfectly for my dance recitals which include cleaning and re-doing multiple times. But with this eyeliner, I took only five mins to do it in a single go. It lasted really long even in burning hot weather. It looked so beautiful even from a long distance. I loved the product. It's a must-have for all those who love eye makeup." —rasu

    15. A tub of extra large, heavy duty cleaning wipes for getting tough jobs done in no time flat. No spraying, scrubbing, rinsing, scrubbing, and rinsing again. One wipe = the job is done.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $11.94.

    Promising review: "I think these wipes are made out of magic — because they can clean just about anything with very little effort! One wipe cleaned my ENTIRE BATHTUB, including the hard water buildup and some residual soap scum. The wipe stayed wet for the entire use, and there was absolutely no sweating involved. I hate cleaning but I was so pumped about the tub I took wipe #2 to my hood vent and good golly it's like it's brand new. I've told everyone I know to buy these. I know they're pricey but I swear the magic is there folks." —Jen M.

    16. Scrubbing Bubbles stick-on gels to freshen and prevent buildup with every flush, so you can go longer between scrubs — without compromising on your clean.

    amazon.com, youtube.com

    Each gel stamp lasts for about 12 days (depending on how often you flush), each refill has six gel stamp uses, and each box has two refills. So one box will keep your toilet clean for at least 144 days.

    Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $19.69.

    Promising review: "I live in a two-story house with three men, so needless to say, our downstairs toilet becomes quite a mess no less than three days after I clean it. But with this product, it keeps the bathroom smelling fresh, the toilet looking clean, and me feeling less grossed out about cleaning the toilet at the end of the week! I highly recommend this product for anyone with a house full of guys, or just someone who hates cleaning the toilet as much as I do. You could easily not scrub your bowl for two weeks and not have to worry about stuck on grossness." —Vanessa

    17. A high-tech Philips Sonicare Diamondclean toothbrush you just need to mover around your chompers a bit — *it'll* do the heavy plaque lifting, thanks to the up to 62,000 brush head movements per minute.

    Amazon

    This bb has four modes, three intensities, and three different brush heads so you can customize your cleaning to your dental needs. And it has sensors to show you on your smartphone where you missed so you can improve your brushing habits. (It's one of Oprah's Favorite Things 2017!).

    Get it from Amazon for $179.95+ (available in six colors).

    Promising review: "Bought this at the suggestion of my dentist. I particularly like the pressure sensor and the indication that you are brushing too fast. The timer is also very helpful. The app itself tracking focus areas for brushing I find a bit inaccurate but it does help. Overall very pleased. It is a toothbrush that feels like what a dentist uses when I get a check up. Expensive most definitely but it gets the job done very effectively." —Richard

    This was our pick for best $$$ electric toothbrush on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    Don't want to splurge that much? Try our also-awesome pick for the best mid-priced toothbrush (the Oral B Pro 1000), which you can get from Amazon for $39.94.

    18. And a Waterpik that'll take all the work out of flossing. Just aim the nozzle, and a targeted jet of water'll get right in between your teeth, removing plaque and food particles without irritating your gums — or cutting off the circulation to your fingertips like regular floss.

    Amazon

    This model has an on/off switch right on the handle so you can pause easily without squirting water all over your bathroom. It comes with seven flossing tips for different needs, including for crowns and implants — this is great for braces, too!

    Get it from Amazon for $66.50+ (available in nine colors, plus a ~whitening~ version).

    Promising review: "This thing is a necessity. That's how strongly I feel about it after a month of usage. I had regularly used floss and felt that it was adequate, but decided to purchase a Waterpik because it was on sale and I was bored. Wow. This is one of the most important purchases I've made in years. I feel like a good analogy would be to try imagining cleaning the hard-to-reach parts of your vehicle with a rope. You've done it for years because it's all you know. Then enters the pressure washer, which allows you to blast things to smithereens. Floss = rope, Waterpik = pressure washer. Bam. Done. Not going back as long as it works." —Damian

    19. A Muller veggie chopper to turn your onion-cutting tears into tears of joy when you realize the whole dang thing is diced with one press of the lever.

    Amazon

    It comes with the chopper itself, two super-sharp dicing discs (one for 6.8mm dices and one for 12.6mm dices), and a cleaning brush.

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99 (or a version with four blades for $29.99).

    Promising review: "This is the BEST chopper I have found and I have purchased many. This works so well that I bought two. Other choppers fail, sometimes on the first time. This chopper has several built-in features that lock the attachments in place as well as locks the hinge of the chopper in place. Other choppers do not have these features and are very fragile and break easier. I searched a long time to find this chopper and I won't buy anything else. I chop fruits and vegetables every day and this chopper is a life saver to ensure that all chopped items are the same size and works every time. It's a winner!" —LeviWilliams

    20. A Foreo Luna Mini 2, a silicone face-cleansing brush designed to wash and exfoliate, scrubbing every drop of makeup, dirt, and oil from your face with each vibrating pulse so you don't need to rub with your fingers or any such nonsense.

    BuzzFeed

    It'll totally remove your makeup, dirt, and oil, AAAAND gently exfoliate your skin in just 60 seconds (I know). ^That's me! I love this handy lil' device SO much. Check out my in-depth Foreo Luna Mini 2 review for all the deets!

    Get it from Amazon for $139 (available in six colors).

    Promising review: "I really regretted this purchase at first, seemed like it was just a vibrator, the shape was weird considering the angles of a face, the two different sides felt the same. BUT THEN....... I dried my face with a white towel and there was not a speck of makeup left on the towel and I didn't have a drop of mascara raccoon eye look left on my face. This is the cleanest my face has ever been. I will keep using it" —hine0108

    21. A fan-favorite Wet brush to detangle even the most stubborn hair...WITHOUT ripping it from your scalp or having to desperately comb it out with your fingers. This bb has over 3,000 five-star reviews for a reason.

    instagram.com

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 12 colors).

    Promising review: "I would give this brush more than five stars if I could. I have very long, thick, curly/wavy hair. Before switching to the Wet brush, I was pulling out clumps of loose hair all day. I’d shed constantly and always be plucking long strands from my clothing, furniture, etc. My hair was frizzy, unruly, and almost impossible to untangle. Recently, I started to get small mats for seemingly no reason and it would take ages to brush them out, along with a considerable amount of pain and frustration I knew I had to make some sort of change, and my boyfriend suggested to start with changing my hairbrush. The Wet brush glides through my hair basically effortlessly, and untangles any trouble spots with ease and without pain. I never knew something as simple as a hairbrush could make such a huge difference in my life. I will not ever purchase another brand of hairbrush." —Mgn

    22. A slim and waterproof Kindle Paperwhite so you don't have to make trips to the bookstore or library — just place a hold on popular book online through your local library, and you can add it to your Kindle instantly when it's ready!

    Amazon

    This little bb will do all the work for you — keeping your place held, highlighting your fave passages, and even looking up words you don't know. Personal note: I have the last edition of the Kindle Paperwhite, borrow tons of ebooks from the public library on it, and I love it so much. It's SO LIGHT that I keep it in my bag at all times — you never know when you're gonna have a spare 15 minutes for a chapter or two.

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99+ (available in two storage sizes and two colors, with and without special offers).

    Learn more about it in our full breakdown of the 2018 waterproof Kindle Paperwhite.

    You can also sign up for a 30-day Kindle Unlimited trial for ~unlimited~ access to over a million books and more. You can keep subscribing for $9.99 per month after that as well — or sign up for a six-month trial for $29.97 (aka half off!).

    23. Aztec Secret Healing Clay Mask which ~pulsates~ as it works its magic, banishing the toughest acne and deep cleaning your pores with calcium bentonite clay. Basically it's like an extracting facial, except you don't have to schedule a pesky appointment or spend the big bucks.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    For best results, mix with apple cider vinegar.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    Promising review: "I am a bit obsessive about skincare. And I'm not afraid to spend good money for products that do what they claim to do — which is super hard to find. This product is indeed all it's hyped up to be. And you can't beat the price. I'm at that super fun stage of life where I still get some hormonal breakouts, but I'm also starting to lose elasticity, I have hyperpigmentation and all of that. This is hands down the most effective product I have ever used. I wish I had known about this stuff when I was struggling with cystic acne when I was younger. It immediately improves active breakouts, tightens the skins, exfoliates and gives you a really nice youthful glow. I mix it with ACV and use it about 2/week. I have also started using it on my hair with excellent results. Cannot recommend this product enough." —Kay Dee

    24. A grooming glove designed with nodules on the fingers and palms to make brushing the excess hair from your cat, dog, or even horse more like petting — so your pet won't fidget or get uncomfortable, and your sofa (and clothes!) won't be constantly covered in hair.

    Amazon

    Get each glove from Amazon for $6.99 (available in both left-handed and right-handed versions, or a double-sided version for both hands).

    Promising review: "Fantastic dog grooming aid! Our older rescue dog isn't too keen on the routine dog brushing stuff but her thick coat really needs the grooming — this dog grooming glove is the exactly right answer. Put the glove on, pet the dog, and all that loose hair comes away leaving her coat feeling so much smoother and softer without causing her to be nervous or upset over a brushing. Highly recommend, and yes I'm going to be ordering as gifts for a couple of other dog owners I know!" —DSP

    25. A John Frieda hot air brush so you can perfect a sleek *and* voluminous blowout in no time ~flat~ — without juggling a round brush in one hand and a heavy blow drier in the other.

    BuzzFeed

    Get the 1.5-inch brush from Amazon for $39.99 (or a 1-inch size for $34.99).

    Promising review: "OMG this is the BEST HAIR TOOL for haircut with layers!! When I tried to style it at home with a regular blow dryer and round brush I couldn't do it like the my hairstylist — it came out flat and straight. Then I came across this AMAZING brush. I am SOOOOO GLAD I tried it. This product is truly everything!!! It is LIGHTWEIGHT, which makes it very easy to hold, the heat temperature on high is perfect (first i thought it wasn't hot enough, but it's perfect to style hair without causing heat damage), the bristles are soft, hair slides through, does not pull on hair, no breakage at all. The feature that I LOVE is that it has a cool setting to let curls cool down before releasing them (NO NEED TO USE HOT ROLLERS). This hot air brush is so great that I had to purchase one for mom as soon as I was done using it. Cannot say enough good things!" —FashionChic

    To say I love this brush would be an understatement. Check out my full review of the John Frieda hot air brush for all the ~hairy details~.

    26. Washing machine cleaning tablets that'll blast away any hidden mold or mildew, meaning your towels will come out of the wash smelling like clean laundry, not mysteriously stinky.

    Amazon

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $9.16.

    Promising review: "I have been using bleach to clean my machine for some time, but decided to give this a try a few months ago. My very first clean with Affresh left me surprised and delighted for not only did it clean my machine, it eliminated the nasty smell that always transferred to my clothes thanks to a build up of mold I didn't even know about. Every month now, I toss a tablet into the drum and let it work its magic. Now, my machine is cleaner than ever, and my clothes always smell wonderfully fresh. I highly recommend this to everyone." —Kelli Crawford

    27. A garlic prepping set with a silicone tube (that'll peel the garlic) and a press (that'll mince it) so you can flavor your food without getting stinky fingers — or, ya know, have to deal with actually chopping it.

    Amazon

    Just pop the individual clove in the tube, and roll it against the counter a few times for a quick peel. Than simply push the press down, and your perfeclty minced pieces are ready to use!

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    Promising review: "LOVE this product! I like the size of the garlic chunks that you get with this masher, and I LOVE how easy it is to clean compared to other garlic mashers. I love that you don't need to use your fingers to peel the garlic. My mom has been cooking with garlic with every meal for 50+ years and wants one now too!!" —Mama Miller

    28. A fan-favorite cold brew coffee maker you just fill with water and coffee beans, then let sit in the fridge until you're ready to drink it. We love an effortless caffeine fix.

    Amazon

    It's airtight so your coffee won't taste like the Chinese food leftovers that are *also* in your fridge.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.87 (for the one-quart size) or $31.06 (for the two-quart size).

    Promising review: "Delicious iced coffee! Don’t be fooled by getting an iced coffee at Starbucks and paying almost four bucks. For less then a dollar you can brew your own cold brew coffee at home. The best part is that cold brew has 60 percent less acid then regular coffee does. So go ahead acid reflux sufferers, have that second cup! I used some gourmet beans from a local coffee roaster for $15 and ground them myself. The coffee was far better than Starbucks could ever dream of making. Best of all I get three days worth of coffee for around $2 bucks worth of beans. Pretty amazing." —Robert Klaproth

    I have and looooooove this cold brew maker. Learn more in my full review!

    29. An overnight sleeping mask to wake up with quenched, hydrated, and radiant skin by the time your alarm goes off. Catching some Zs just got a lot more productive.

    instagram.com

    Get them from Amazon: hyaluronic acid for $9.98, rose oil for $9.89, snail repair for $14.16, and collagen for $13.97.

    Promising review (for the rose oil): "I don’t normally write reviews! However, THIS PRODUCT WORKS WONDERS! I am starting my second bottle! I hope that tells you something. This product has only been the one to work for me! It gets rid of my redness around my nose! On top of that! My pores seem 'porelsess,' if that makes any sense! Before bed I slather this product on, and in the morning my hands and my face are silky, smooth, radiant, and bright LOOKING! There are days where I wouldn’t need to wear concealer! I wished there was a bigger bottle! In addition, a little goes a long way so don’t get too crazy by putting too much on, or else you’ll become like me, SAD THAT ITS ALMOST RUNNING OUT!" —Athena Ly

    30. An original Squatty Potty for relaxing your Puborectalis muscle so you can poop without straining, aka so constipation is no longer your #1 (or should we say #2) consternation.

    Amazon

    If you somehow still don't know what a Squatty Potty is, it's a toilet stool that keeps your feet raised while pooping. ~Going~ in this position is supposed to fully relax your Puborectalis muscle, meaning you have an easier elimination, with no straining. And if you think that's TMI, just try it and see.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    Promising review: "I was hesitant about how much Squatty would impact my GI conditions but this is amazing. Although the stance is a bit awkward to experience at first, the results are immediate. After finishing, my lower abdomen is SO much more relaxed than a bowel movement without the Squatty. There is NONE of the strain/tightness/cramping I usually feel in my lower abdomen." —S. Levine

    Promising review: "My husband who is sick of helping me open my wine that he ordered this for me after I called him at work and was complaining how much I hate our wine opener :( This opener my friend is super smooth it opens the wine bottle in one press of a button. My real issue with other wine opener was getting the cork out of screw afterwards, but with this wine opener all I have to do is just hit the reverse button to get the cork out out with no problem! It comes with the cap opener and charging cable. It’s lightweight and just looks great too; I've kept it in my kitchen with wine bottles it looks like a piece of decor. For all my girlfriends out there who hate the normal wine opener get this one, trust me you'll love it. Take it from me, I've used all kinds of wine openers, twist, lever, rabbit, other type of electric ones and this one is the best." —vidya

    Promising review: "This is an amazing little device at a very affordable price. The setup was very straight forward. I had it up and running in a matter of a few minutes. It just needed to connect to my wireless network and away it went. I now have voice control over my home lighting and furnace. There are so many skills you can add to Alexa and new ones show up on a daily basis. I can change the thermostat from anywhere in the house I have an Echo Dot in voice range. Super cool! I really don't think most people understand how powerful and easy to use this device is. You can ask it anything you might search for on the Internet using Google or Bing. You can also set up an alarm clock function to wake you." —Gadgeteer

    Promising review: "I love these things! I had curls that lasted the entire day!! My hair dries straight, it’s thin and doesn’t typically hold curls for more than an hour or two. But when I used these, I only had them in for four hours & they still held the curls until I went to bed that night — they survived a day at Disneyland! I didn’t even use hair spray or any type of holding product for that matter. I need to keep these babies in all night and see how they hold!" —Sarah Savin

    Promising review: "Here's the deal, I'm pretty much a tomboy, I don't know how to do my makeup, I have thick hair, but never knew how to do anything but straighten it, until a friend made me try her Kiss automatic curling iron. It legitimately works and it's the easiest thing to use! I've (briefly) tried other wands and burn myself over and over. I've never burned myself with this tool and I love that it makes it easy to curl away from your face on either side, with just a push of a button. I also like that it dings when it's done, so it takes some guess work out. If you want curls, but are intimidated by all the tools out there, you won't be disappointed with this styler." —Uskadelig

    Promising review: "FAM. I need you to lissssssten. I would give this product 87 stars if I could. This thing was delivered to my doorstep in two business days, and will provide a lifetime of joy for me. You'd think it would be one of those gimmicky kitchen appliances that barely even works. EXCEPT you're wrong. It's amazing. It's quick. Look. Lissssten. You put the ingredients in and about two minutes later your tummy is all like 'oh yesssss.' Basically. Just buy it.

    38. A wireless charging pad so you can just drop your phone right down and pick it back up later with a full battery. Plugging your phone in yourself and dealing with fraying cords is so 2018.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (available in six colors).

    Promising review: "I have a battery case and I do not enjoy wrestling the tight case off my phone every night for charging. This wireless charging pad magically charges both the phone and the case over night while it sits innocently on my bed stand. This miracle of science somehow keeps my phone fully charged without wires. My previous phones also used battery cases, which would eventually stop working because of taking them on/off the phone so much. Great product at 1/3 the cost of the similar solution offered by the battery case company." —Joel

    Amazon

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $13.98.

    Promising review: "OMG, these socks are amazing! Incredibly soft and comfortable, I am wearing them all the time, and ordered a second set. My feet get cold easily, and it's been a struggle to find a perfect fit; all socks were either too large or too thick or tight or not warm enough — until I tried these. And the price is pretty fair for the set of three pairs. I wish there was a better color selection but other than that, they are perfect. Highly recommend!" —Tatiana

    Get it from Amazon for $34.95

    Promising review: " It was actually my brother who sold me on trying one after he’d done so himself, and after installing it myself, (which really is pretty quick and easy), I was blown away the very first time I used it. If you’re one of those people that use wayyyy too much toilet paper and wipes because you can’t ever seem to get clean enough, this device will be a pleasant surprise. The rinse from the water does most of the cleaning for you. You’ll hardly need any toilet paper at all afterwards, other than to dry off. No rubbing your skin raw anymore trying to get clean. I can’t recommend this product highly enough. Just try it. You’ll love it. Yes, it’s cold water that washes you off, but you feel totally refreshed afterwards, and extremely clean and pain free." —Scott

    Btw, the Luxe Bidet Neo 120 was our $$$ pick for best toilet paper (well, best way to get your butt clean) on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    Get a six-quart Instant Pot from Amazon for $64.95+ (also available in three-quart and eight-quart sizes).

    Promising review: "I can't believe that I love this thing. All my friends were getting them and raving about it. But I absolutely hate my slow cooker, and I figured this device would be much the same. I finally decided to get one when my friend posted that she had made amazing carnitas in it. My husband is Mexican and carnitas are his favorite food, so I thought I'd get one to try it out and hope everyone was right. The first thing I made (after the water test) was the carnitas and they KNOCKED OUR SOCKS OFF. Then I made rice and it came out better than my old rice cooker. Tonight I made ribs and the entire family went wild. I've had this Instant Pot for roughly 48 hours and I'm already using it for a fourth time right now to make oatmeal. Get one. You will not be sorry." —Regina Croskey-Corcoran

    43. An under-cabinet jar opener to shorten the time before you can crunch into that perfect pickle without straining your wrist or frustratedly banging the edge of the lid with a spoon.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon $13.95.

    Promising review: "A simple but very useful product. We have purchased 6 of them for our own use plus to give as gifts. The bottom line is this product works, does what it claims it will do which is to remove jar lids. It is easy to mount underneath a cabinet, in the kitchen. So far my wife nor I have found a lid we can't remove using this device. With it permanently mounted it is always in the same place and not lost in some drawer. We have one in the kitchen of our house and our motorhome. It is well built and should last for many years. Everything needed to install is included." —Joe B.

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

    Promising review: "This is by far THE BEST carpet cleaner out there!! I love this product! Do you have the following on your carpet...Old stains? Ketchup? Ice cream? Pet potty, marker, weird odd stains that shouldn't be there but your kids deny they did it... This is your product! I was desperate to get the stains out from the messy kids. I didn't spray it, I poured this on the stain enough to get it super wet. Walked away for abt 3-5 mins to soak on the old stains and scrubbed it with a hard bristle brush. And boom no more stains!!!!!! Seriously. I'm buying in bulk. LOVE this stuff. Product arrived quickly and brand new." —Sandra McDade
