    29 Products That'll Help You Get Ready So Much Faster

    These have your back when you've hit the snooze button one too many times.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A three-intensity lip + cheek palette formulated with coconut extract for a fresh-faced GLOW. The best part? It's a one & done so you can quickly dab it on with a finger when you're running out the door.,

    Each shade has the three sections (sheer, medium, and opaque) so you can choose the amount of coverage you want! It's also vegan and cruelty-free.

    Get it from Amazon for $10 (available in three shades).

    Promising review: "I loved this! my favorite of the Undone Beauty products! When applied to the cheek it makes you look super rosy and fresh and I received so many compliments on my makeup when I wore this for the first time. It applies much more matte on your lips but makes for a great base underneath gloss or other lipstick. It reminded me of a much more expensive cream blush. Undone!" —Cecily Knee

    2. A mini fabric steamer that'll demolish wrinkles after you've left your clothes on The Chair (you know which one I'm talking about) for days on end. Sloppy dressing, you have met your match.

    BuzzFeed /

    It heats up in 90 seconds, which for my snooze button–hitting ass, is basically a miracle. It's v lightweight (about one pound), and the water tank is the perfect size to thoroughly steam up to five-ish garments, making it a no-brainer for a quick pass over a blouse OR when steaming a whole bunch of clothes the night before a vacation. Tl;dr: I LOVE THIS STEAMER!

    Get it from Amazon for $25.97.

    Promising review: "This product has changed my daily routine in THE most positive way!! I don't go ANYWHERE in clothing that is not crisp, clean and professional looking, but the time, and money, that I have to invest to look this way can be VERY time consuming and costly. NOT ANY MORE!!! I love the size, portability and ease of use. I can now lessen my trips to the dry cleaner (and the requisite hunting for dry cleaner coupons). If this pup even acts like it's getting ready to stop working, I'll be online ordering a new one to be delivered STAT!!" —Snowdenr

    This thing is legit one of the best things I've bought on Amazon — check out my review for all the deets!

    3. Or — more realistically, tbh — a bottle of Downy wrinkle release spray you can just spritz on and magically reveal crease-free clothing when you can't bear to even wait the 90 seconds for your steamer to heat up. There are other things to be done!

    Get two bottles from Amazon for $13.26+ (available in two scents).

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

    4. 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 — in THREE MINUTES like the reviewer pictured here!

    Get it from Amazon for $50.99.

    Promising review: "Gotta love Amazon Prime!! I just received this and OMG I'm in LOVE!! I'm known for air drying my hair because its super fine but VERY thick and takes forever to dry. Forget how long it takes to style it; I have wavy hair in the back and it falls straight in the front so I have to fight with a round brush, blow dryer and most days a straight iron too! Air drying in the winter doesn't always work- especially on days like today when it feels like -15!! Well I've seen reviews for this bad boy and decided to give it a try. In 3 minutes and 36 seconds I went from towel dried hair to styled!! All I used was a little argan oil on my ends and bam! I am dried, styled and ready for my day!" —Holly D.

    5. A L'Oreal blowout priming spray that'll cut down your drying time while protecting your hair from heat damage (because your arms don't need a whole workout when you're trying to get ready), all while achieving salon-quality softness.

    Get it from Amazon for $3.97.

    Promising review: "I use this every time I blow dry my hair. Even with my thick hair I can have it completely dry in less than five minutes. Leaves the hair feeling smooth and soft. I even find that I don't need to restyle my hair the next day even after sleeping on it." —blackrose

    6. A Jergens in-shower lotion designed to be used on wet skin so you can get in, get out, and get on with your day. Mornings are hard enough!


    It blends with the water on your skin and dries quickly so you don't have to wait around before getting dressed.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.68 (available in five varieties).

    Promising review: "I have always used and loved Jergens because it dried faster than other popular brands of lotions. When another lotion brand came out with their in-shower, rinse off lotion, I tried it and liked it — but it left my shower a horrible mess. I had to scrub my shower all the time. So this is a dream. It's the same great, fast drying lotion that I love, but it is convenient to do in the shower and it doesn't make my tub a mess to clean. I love the green tea scent. When I use it before bed, my skin is noticeably softer the next morning. And it's is 100% more convenient than applying traditional lotions OR scrubbing my tub every other day." —Bernie Moore

    7. A sturdy but cute felt purse organizer with tons of pockets for your phone, earbuds, cosmetics, hand sanitizer, Kindle, and all the other *must-haves* you usually leave in the bag you used yesterday. Just grab it, drop it in your Purse Of The Day, and go!

    It comes in three different sizes to fit whatever purses, handbags, or totes you have.

    Get it from Amazon for $17.88+ (available in three sizes and 12 colors).

    Promising review: "I was skeptical about buying this at first because I have a purse organizer already. But the one I have is not sturdy at all — the sides fall down and I can never keep things organized because of that. Well this one is perfect!!! I would totally recommend it, I got the large one and it fits perfectly in my bag!!! I'm very happy. It's very sturdy and holds all my stuff. No more digging through my purse to try to find things anymore!!" —Amazon Customer

    8. A Squatty Potty for anyone who can't just SIT AROUND all day on the toilet, waiting to poop and reading the back of their shampoo bottle. You now have 20 minutes back in your morning.


    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. I love my Squatty Potty!

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    Promising review: "I love Squatty Potty and you will too. It works like a charm. You will wonder how you got along without it all these years. Think 'Laundry Chute!' That's the best way I can explain it. You will have more time on your hands now, that you own a Squatty Potty. You go into the bathroom and you are out in seconds, not 10; 15; or 20 minutes as in the past. Business owners should buy these for their bathrooms, as their employees will take less time on bathroom breaks, really! In fact if the government would invest in these for every bathroom, the legislative process would even speed up. You will be glad you got one!" —campromise

    If you want a ~prettier~ one for your bathroom, Squatty Potty also makes a teak wood version ($69.99) and a Bamboo version ($67.57).

    9. Two pairs of self-tying shoelaces so you can head out the door for a quick jog or grocery run *truly* quickly — just slip them through the loops of any lace-up shoe and slip 'em on your feet.


    Reviewers note they're also great for people with limited mobility AND for putting sneakers on quickly during triathlons — every second counts!

    Get two pairs from Amazon for $14.99 (available in seven colors; one size fits all).

    Promising review: "Love my Lock Laces. I have tried other brands, but lock laces are the true original and you can tell in the quality and performance. I like to replace all my traditional laces with lock laces, makes just tossing on some shoes to run out to the mailbox or take a quick trip so much easier. And, no more laces coming loose all the time!" —Joshua Bolio

    10. Extra large, biodegradable body wipes for when you need that shower-clean feeling, like STAT, but don't have access to one.


    In addition to camping and post-gym use, several reviewers recommend them for post-surgery convenience, too!

    Get a pack of 32 wipes from Amazon for $9.95.

    Promising review: "Great product! Used them on a four-day camping trip where there was no running water (showers or toilets). These wipes worked so well! They work amazing when you’re covered in days of SPF, bug spray, campfire ash, sweat, etc.! I used them on face and body (and rear-end... sorry not sorry, we all poop!) I felt refreshed after using them, especially when I saw how much dirt they got off my skin. The wipes still retain their moisture after days of opening/reopening. The fact that they are biodegradable is a huge plus! I would definitely recommend this product to anyone, and not just campers! Will definitely order again!" —Ryan

    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.

    Get it from Amazon for $21.97 (available in two sizes).

    Promising review: "I never ever ever ever ever do my hair. Literally. I decided to buy a curling wand after looking at all of the great reviews it had. I looked at CHI and other expensive brands too, but they had nowhere near the reviews this wand did. When I saw the amazing reviews that people had left I knew I should give it a shot. HOLY CRAP GUYS this wand is amazing! I would have paid $150 for this thing! I do my hair literally all the time now, and it takes me 15 minutes at the most, and is way prettier than straightening it. Plus, you can use a wand several different ways to give you a different look. So I can go from southern belle curls to sexy voluminous curls in no time. I'm seriously considering buying another just in case I love this one or it breaks. And about burning yourself, this is my first wand and I still haven't burnt myself, and I don't use the glove either, so don't be nervous, just pay attention!" —Shelby B.

    12. A quick-drying top coat so you can finally stop waving your hands frantically before finally heading out the door. This baby'll have your polish fully set looooong before you're ready to leave (like, in a few minutes after applying, max!).


    Get it from Amazon for $5.33.

    Promising review: "NEVER GETTING MY NAILS PROFESSIONALLY DONE AGAIN. I love having long nails. I do not like spending fifty bucks just to get them painted. I tried the gel polish, with gel top coat; I tried the gel system with the lamps; I tried every polish out there. My hands get washed hundreds of times daily. This stuff is unbelievable. It really works the way they say it does. I applied it about 1-2 minutes after finishing a second coat of color and within minutes it had bonded and set and my nails stay shiny and polished for over a week. That is not the full two weeks claimed, but I am unusually hard on my nails so over a week is AWESOME. I immediately ordered several more." —Amazon Customer

    13. Glossier's Boy Brow to make thickening, filling in, and grooming your brows easier than ever — the tinted gel formula and mascara-like wand do it all with just one swipe!


    Get it from Glossier for $16 (available in three tinted shades, plus clear).

    Promising review: "I’ve been supporting glossier for the past two years. They truly are amazing. This boy brow is so quick and easy and does the job. I have very light eyebrows and this is such a great way to make my brows natural but darker. Best thing ever!!!!" —Maddie

    14. A canister of Batiste dry shampoo so your third day hair (or fifth day hair) can look as good as when it's freshly washed and styled — NO time-consuming morning shower required. *Plus* it adds a boost of volume.

    Get the original scent from Amazon for $8.69 (available in tons of scents and colors for blending into hair).

    Promising review: "Tried the rest, this one is the best. I have long, thick hair that usually stays pretty clean if I wash it every other day, but I've been trying to make curls last the elusive third day. I've tried several kinds of spray dry shampoo and always found that they either didn't do a good job absorbing the oil, or stayed white no matter what I did to rub them in, often both. I tried the original formula/scent, & I think it smells lovely. The spray goes on white (I didn't try the tinted kind) & then you massage it in for 30 seconds & BOOM. Body & volume like crazy, no greasy spots. This is definitely going into the new 'must have' for me. I can't emphasize this enough, I have used it on clean hair just to boost the volume!" —Susurrus

    This won best inexpensive dry shampoo on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    15. 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

    Get a two-pack from Amazon (one for your left eye, one for your right) 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

    16. Maybelline's Dream Fresh BB cream to make a no-effort makeup look possible with just a dab or two, evening out skin tone while feeling light as air. Coverage + moisture + SPF = READY TO GO.

    BuzzFeed / Ignacia Fulcher

    Get it from Amazon for $6.79 (available in three shades).

    Promising review: "This stuff has saved my morning routine! I just dab a little onto the tips of my fingers and apply in a light, even coat. It looks and feels natural and soft. It's great as an everyday foundation, for on-the-go or travel, or when you don't want anyone to know you're wearing makeup." —Samara Haden

    17. A microfiber towel turban that'll dry your hair faster than ever (without causing damage or frizz). And it buttons easily in the back so the whole thing won't go sliding off your head when you're applying your skincare or makeup at the same time.


    Get it from Amazon for $5.29+ (available in six colors).

    Promising review: "Love these because they actually dry my hair pretty fast and are very soft on my hair. They stay in place and I can go about my business without having to worry about my towel falling. Very comfy too." —M. Antillon

    18. A chic little scrunchie masquerading as an elegantly-tied scarf to really dress up your ponytails or messy buns when you're running out the door, 20 minutes late already.


    Get the set of five from Amazon for $11.99.

    Promising review: "Well made. Cute pearl accent. Very versatile and makes athleisure looks a little more high class. Great when you’re running late and still need to look pulled together. The silk is also nice in the hair." —Alicia

    19. 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!

    Get a 42-pack from Amazon for $9.93.

    Promising review: "These things are AWESOME. I have very long, fine/pin-straight hair and these curlers gave my hair so much bounce. Since I wash my hair every other day I used these when my hair was dry and left them in overnight. I was expecting my hair to look like a frizzy poodle mess...but no. Since my hair is so long I didn't use a size smaller than the orange ones and I have perfect wavy curls. I did brush the curls out a bit with a round brush because I don't personally care for perfect ringlets. Results are awesome!! Love love love!" —Brianna

    20. A pretty acrylic makeup organizer for displaying your favorite palettes, nail polishes, and more right on your vanity, rather than mixed up in your bathroom drawers. You know you can neeeeever find that perfect shade of red when you need it now!


    Get it from Amazon for $33.99 (available in eight colors, and two configurations: three large drawers and four small drawers or four large drawers and two small drawers).

    Promising review: "I love this makeup organizer! I could not believe how inexpensive it was, because it is very well made! I wanted to wait a while before reviewing it to see how it held up. It's been almost two months and I have not had one problem with it! And, this is the longest my makeup has stayed organized. I highly recommend. I purchased two! One with four small drawers and three large drawers. and one with two small drawers and four large drawers. Both have the same organizer on top. The color is awesome! Of course, I love pink —especially this soft pink. If you are looking for a makeup organizer this is the one!" —Shelly

    21. A reviewer-favorite pair of elastic-topped ballet flats to make choosing what shoes to wear a 10 second decision. These bbs TRULY go with everything, and people swear by them for all-day comfort.

    Get them from Amazon for $7.47+ (available in sizes 5.5–11 and 36 colors and patterns).

    Promising review: "These shoes are my go-to everyday flats. I get so many compliments on them. I always brag that I got them for such a cheap price because they look like they should be at least $50." —Kiersten

    22. Busy Beauty's showerless shave gel for anyone who (like me) 1. chooses to shave their legs and 2. forgets to do so EVERY DANG TIME they're in the shower.

    It's formulated with ginger root oil to reduce irritation and inflammation (aka razor burn and ingrowns), plus tea tree oil, which has antibacterial properties. And any leftover product? Just rub it into your skin as a moisturizer — no rinsing!

    Get it from Amazon for $11.95.

    Promising review: "I always forget to shave when I go to the gym. This product is great for a pre-workout shave! I have sensitive skin and I am always apprehensive with new products, but I'm so glad I gave this a try! Usually when shaving I get a lot of razor burn, but with this gel it really reduces any irritation and I get no more red bumps!" —Meg Tracy

    23. A durable honeycomb drawer insert to corral your socks, scarves, ties, undies, etc. in style — so you can actually see which is which when getting dressed in the morning. No more rifling through drawers endlessly to track down your LAST pair of no-show undies.

    The pieces just *snap* together for easy assembly, and the design expands to fit whatever size drawer you have.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    Promising review: "Perfect way to organize socks and make it fun to open the drawer and be like 'what socks am I gonna wear today?' And all the colors and patterns beam back at you. If you have boring socks then I would say screw it because you are boring." —Esq

    Suddenly in need of jazzier socks? Might I suggest 23 Of The Best Socks You Can Get On Amazon?

    24. Maybelline's cult-fave Instant Age Rewind concealer, which'll effectively cancel our dark circles and fill fine lines (without creasing) WHILE treating your under eyes, thanks to powerful ingredients like goji berry and Haloxyl (which reduces the appearance of puffiness).


    And it has a built-in applicator so you don't have to scramble for another brush. That's a whole lot of power for a ~$8 concealer!

    Get it from Amazon for $7.94+ (available in 19 shades).

    Promising review: "Skeptic turned fan. I have the darkest circles of anyone I know and I have dry skin on top of that. Given these circumstances I thought for sure this would be fail on me, but I was pleasantly surprised when it actually worked. It continues to work and is now my go-to under eye concealer. I don't know how they do it, honestly, but it looks great." —The NYC Violin Studio

    25. A gold-filled magnetic clasp converter to more easily (but still securely) put on and take off necklaces and bracelets without having to ask for help.

    These are especially great for anyone with arthritis or limited mobility in their fingers!

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95.

    Promising review: "When you get this little bitty clasp you are going to say that it will never work. Let me just tell the story... This little bitty magnet could hold up a HUGE & HEAVY necklace. I purchased several of these from a national television jewelry seller and they were total crap. I kept looking and found these on Amazon. Looking at the photo they looked pretty large so I ordered TWO. Soon as I opened the box I was ready to send them back without even trying them but I said 'what the hey' and put them on the necklaces. THEY WORK!! THE FORCE IS STRONG WITH THIS ONE!!!! I am back to order five more." —Teresa

    26. And a set of four dust-free sectioned trays that'll PROPERLY stow away your jewelry (read: not in a tangled ball o' chains shoved in some drawer). No one has time to untangle chain knots in the morning.


    Get it from Amazon for $39.90 (you can also buy the individual trays to meet your needs).

    Promising review: "I love these stackable jewelry trays. They take up less space on the dresser, but organize the jewelry remarkably well. When stacked and the top one covered, your jewelry can remain dust free. There are more than enough holders, which are lined with a non-abrasive cloth. Well made and great for organizing." —Alot2do

    27. A stylish little garment rack so you can plan out your outfits in advance instead of desperately falling to your knees in your closet, wailing "I HAVE NOTHING TO WEARRRRRRR!"


    Just me? P.S. This has room on the top AND bottom for accessories + shoes to make things even *easier*.

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99.

    Promising review: "I have been trying to find a sturdy closet that i could put in my room. I have bought several other ones and they always tips over. This one was fantastic. It hold all my clothes, it’s not that small but also not too big. It made my room look so much more organized. I absolutely love it! We totally recommend this!" —Amazon Customer

    28. A Zipuller for those mornings where you're reaching around the back to zip up that dress but simply CANNOT. Don't waste time tracking down your roomie — you can handle things now.


    Just attach, step in, and zip!

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

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

    29. An eight pack of spiral spin pins to transform a lazy pony into a chick updo in just seconds. Everyone will think you tried when you really just....didn't.


    Get them from Amazon for $7.99 (also available in gold).

    Promising review: "I LOVE THESE. I used to purchase the Goody brand but it seems my local stores stop selling the larger size and only carry the tiny ones now. I decided to try this brand out and I'm so glad I did. I love that there are eight per pack versus the two in the competitor boxes. I make sure to keep these handy anywhere I go. My hair is extremely long, about 25 inches, and one of these holds my hair in place perfectly. I use two when I'm playing volleyball and I never have to retie my hair like I used to when using a hair tie. I definitely recommend these." —Victoria B.

    Because mornings are hard enough!
