    Just A Bunch Of Useful Products Made From Silicone

    Silicone is the secret to success. I'm pretty sure.

    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 dishwasher safe garlic peeler — simply toss your garlic in, press down, and roll to get perfectly peeled garlic in seconds. This is gentle enough to keep your freshly peeled garlic cloves intact while the grip from the material will keep the peelings inside as your cloves pop out, making meal prep mercilessly simple.

    Amazon

    This includes a ventilated case for storage.

    Promising review: "OK, this is DEFINITELY not a gimmick! Follow the instructions and this will save you time and sanity in the kitchen! Roll it with minimal pressure and it works like a champ. It also rinses very easily and dries quick. The case has holes on either end to ensure it dries completely in between uses when you toss it in a drawer. I will never hand/knife smash garlic and fight with those pesky skins sticking to everything ever again." —ThatKasper

    Get it from Amazon for $19.46.

    2. A pack of reusable straws that are dishwasher safe (drool) and easy to take anywhere (heckin' joy) so you can rid yourself of any plastic straw landfill guilt. That feeling ~sucks~.

    Food 52

    Promising review: "We were worried that these would buckle in take-out drinks, but they hold up beautifully. Add in that they’re dishwasher safe and these are a winner!" —FrozenFoodie

    Get the pack from Food52 for $25.

    3. A wrist watch in a delicate pastel design for the fashion-focused who want a piece that's truly timeless.

    Anthropologie

    Get it on sale from Anthropologie for $29.95 (originally $48, available in three colors).

    4. A yoga mat with skid-free silicone dots — it won't be a ~stretch~ to see why this thing is useful when you position yourself into downward dog and realize you aren't scooting all over the place. Slipping around during hot yoga? Namaste right here.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this towel! The silicone dots on the bottom make a huge difference as the towel does not slip one bit during sweaty Bikram practice. The top material is non-slip too and allows me to firmly hold my poses. It's a very sturdy towel, not too thick or too thin, and the length is just right. I got so many compliments on the cute design I am going to buy a few as gifts right away!" —AMZ Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

    5. A bread maker that'll help you bake perfect loaves of bread using only one container. The partially closed design allows steam to circulate to keep your bread from drying out, while the openings on the side help heat disperse evenly, creating a golden crust. This li'l tool will help you ~rise~ to the occasion any time an occasion calls for baked bread.

    Amazon

    This is both microwave and dishwasher safe. It's capable of withstanding temperatures up to 428 degrees.

    Promising review: "I love this. It's very easy to use and to clean. I have been trying to make fresh bread every week and this is much easier than using my dutch oven. I have been trying different recipes with this bread maker and so far all have come out great!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    6. A grip strip so useful you're gonna want to stick with it forever. It holds things like sunglasses, cellphones, and keys with a simple grip and makes gravity feel like a thing of the past.

    Firebox

    Newton who??

    Promising review: "This is a great product that does what it says. I'm surprised at how sticky the strips stay without any glue or other adhesive — plus it's a cool design." —Kai

    Get it from Firebox for $8.99+ (available in three colors).

    7. A mix-and-match AirPod case sure to differentiate your Airpods from others' while keeping them clean, easy to hold, and darn good lookin'.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "It’s super smooth and gives a great grip to my AirPods case. The colors look just like the picture as well. I’ve had mine for almost two months and I love it! A great purchase! I highly recommend." —True Reviewer

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $12 (available in four colors).

    8. A pack of reusable baking cups for home chefs who want baked goods prepared in a way that's good for the environment *and* to prevent gross paper flakes from sticking to the bottom of mouth-watering muffins.

    Amazon

    These food-grade silicone cups are safe to use in the freezer, microwave, and oven. They can handle temperatures of up to 500 degrees and come in pink, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple.

    Promising review: "These little thingies are perfect! I made some muffins with them and they came out incredibly easily with no residue on the cups at all. I didn't have to use grease or anything. The colors are bright and fun, and they you plenty of each color. These are slightly smaller than a regular cupcake pan/liner, which is actually perfect for my purposes. As others have mentioned, the cups are a bit on the flimsy side, so make sure they're on a baking sheet before you fill them because they can be difficult to transport once full." —kapplejack

    Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $7.99.

    9. A makeup sponge with a slick, anti-absorbent exterior, so you can save on product and set a perfect foundation every time you put makeup on your face.

    Amazon

    Feel free to just wash this with water and whatever soap you have on hand. Simple as that!

    Promising review: "I love these makeup sponges. I routinely wear argan oil as my moisturizer followed by a silicone-based sunscreen. The silicone sponge allows my makeup to glide on with no pulling on my mature skin. I also love that I can use less foundation because the silicone sponge has no pores to trap the foundation. Best makeup sponges ever!" —L. Padilla

    Get a pair from Amazon for $7.99.

    10. Or a face mask "brush" that'll help you apply masks without losing any spa-worthy products to brush bristles.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I'm an esthetician and have never used a brush like this but decided to try it out. I was a bit skeptical about how it would feel since it is one piece (silicone) instead of bristles. My mask went on perfect and smooth and I didn't have to waste any of the mask either. PLUS! You won't have to worry about a bunch of mask getting stuck in your bristles, definitely purchasing more for my new job!" —Tamar Yacoubian

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $3.98.

    11. A pair of reusable scrubbing gloves — a multitasking cleaning tool sure to make you the clever lifeskill-having adult you didn't even know you could be.

    Amazon

    These are even dishwasher safe! Just be sure to throw them in the top rack. And if you don't have a dishwasher (hello friend, I feel you) toss these in boiling water and you're G2G!

    Promising review: "These gloves are durable, sturdy, and heavy duty; not like the typical thin gloves you get from a store that have the design at the top cuff that leave a smell on the hands. These are what I was looking for – gloves that are useful for washing dishes, counters, and small areas I can't get with the sponge! I'm going buy another pair for my mother!! I'm loving them!!" —frank

    Get them from Amazon for $7.55 (available in four colors).

    12. A set of four egg cookers to use on mornings when you've gotta ~scramble~ to make a full breakfast that requires little clean up.

    Amazon

    I've personally used these cups to make poached, hard-boiled, and scrambled eggs (I seriously hate washing eggs off a skillet).

    Promising review: "This works perfectly for poaching my eggs. I love them! I spray each of them with a little olive oil spray and then put a cracked egg in. They slide out of the silicone easily and come out so beautiful!! My family loves them. I am going to have to order another set so I can make more at once!! These are made of high quality materials and have lovely colors." —Valerie Danielle Rittenhouse

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $9.85.

    13. A pack of five temple tips for keeping your frames in place if you're someone who ~nose~ your glasses will slide down your face without some added padding.

    Amazon

    These are lightweight and won't add bulk behind your ears.

    Promising review: "I was a little dubious about these but my daughter was always having her glasses fall off her face and onto the floor so I figured if I could spend a couple of bucks to save her expensive glasses, it was worth a shot. In fact, because you get five pairs, I put a set on my glasses and I'll be darned if they don't work really well. They aren't too thick, so you don't really notice them on your ears. In fact, because of the soft silicone, they actually result in less of the occasional soreness I would get from my glasses on my ears sometimes." —Domenico Bettinelli

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in three styles).

    14. A soft cleansing brush that'll use its gentle sonic pulses to eliminating 99.5% of dirt and oil from your pretty face, washing away *all* the stress and mess of the day in just one minute.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    One of my BuzzFeed coworkers wrote all about how this is a game changer for her skincare routine.

    Promising review: "I've used other facial cleansing brushes, but none can compare to the Foreo Luna Mini 2. I'm noticing my pores are getting less noticeable and my skin looks great. I am 68 years old and have always taken good care of my skin. I'm very pleased and impressed with my Mini 2. It's a great size for my hand and is gentle yet thorough in cleaning my skin. I was very happy with the price that I paid — it certainly is worth it. And I don't have to charge it every night. Charging every six months is okay with me! I would recommend this to everyone." —Lois S.

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

    15. A collapsible strainer you can also us as a steamer or a lid. Your little sister will be thrilled to get your old kitchen tools and your drawers won't know what to do with all that extra space!

    Macy's

    Promising review: "This works great as a strainer but is also great to remove a hot plate from the microwave as it’s big and has great handles. It can be used as a pot lid too and folds small for easy storage. This is soo useful!" —Goldie99

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $21.99.

    16. A pair of frosted unbreakable wine glasses – they're gonna be a safe and satisfying solution when past experience has taught you how dangerous drinking by the pool (and more specifically, dropping that drink by the pool) can be. These "glasses" are sure to solve that problem and ~shatter~ your expectations.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These are awesome! They're bright and colorful, can’t break, and fun to use. They're also so unique that everyone comments on them. I bought them to use in our travel trailer and they are perfect. Originally I told my husband they were for his dinner glass of wine, but that was a silly restriction! I now use them for every beverage — I love the attention! They are unique and perfect!" —Momo

    Get them from Amazon for $14.99 (available in four colors).

    17. And a pack of pretty floral wine stoppers for people who can't finish a bottle to save their life but want to save that bottle for as long as possible.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These work wonderfully! Best bottle stoppers I've had. Easy to put in and take out. You can lay the bottles on their side and they don't leak at all." —C K

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $11.30.

    18. A pair of toe stretchers that'll ease the pain of bunions and cramps when you've been stuck on your feet all day and your dogs are truly barking.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love these! My feet get tired and painful at times and these work wonders. I love them and use them several times a week. They help relax my feet and are easy to use. They also help with my plantar fasciitis!" —Kori R. Sewell

    Get them from Amazon for $8.99 (available in two colors).

    19. A flexible compost bin designed to fit comfortably on your counter so you can keep your compost going even if your apartment is five floors from the garden level.

    Urban Outfitters

    This has a one-gallon capacity and a nonstick surface. The lid rotates to control airflow and odor and it easily inverts, so you can stay clean when removing compost. On top of all that, it's dishwasher safe!

    Get it from Amazon for $29.90 or from Urban Outfitters for $39.

    20. A pack of four reusable sandwich bags to satisfy savvy spenders who are sick of wasting money on disposable bags when they're trying to save money by bringing lunch from home in the first place.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have been using plastic bags all my life, but I was unaware of the environmental impact. I wanted to make some switches that would eliminate plastic. After searching through many products and countless reviews on Amazon I decided to purchase these silicone bags. They are a great price for a product that could last years if properly taken care of. It saves me money in the long run since I don’t need to buy single use bags and it is helping the environment!! I highly recommend these. They can be used in many different ways, which is another plus. These have been an amazing investment." —Sam Rabens

    Get them from Amazon for $16.99.

    21. A wrist support so comfy and cute you'll want to get your paws on it pronto!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This comfortably massages my wrist as I move my mouse. It helps promote blood flow while I spend the majority of my work day in front of a computer. Besides the ergonomic benefits, this mouse pad is very cute and adds some charm to the plain office space. The mouse moves smoothly on the surface and the pad stays firmly in place on my desk. The padding is full and firm. Overall I’m very pleased with this product!" —Sweet Ichigo

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

    22. A pair of nipple covers in case you wanna be braless and flawless without letting everyone know how cold you think the restaurant is.

    Anthropologie

    Promising review: "How am I 40 and just now discovering these? I was very skeptical about a stick-on bra but I absolutely HATE strapless bras. My girls are too small to hold one up so I have to get one so tight I can’t breath. These absolutely stay in place, even when I used them several times while in Maui. Just follow the directions for cleaning them after use. They give just enough shape to make my light and flowing spaghetti strap blouses lay nice. Try them!" —Jenelle

    Get them from Anthropologie for $26 (available in two colors) or get a similar kind from Amazon for $6.99.

    23. A suction placemat that won't slide around when your toddler attempts to swipe away their uneaten broccoli bits.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I am completely satisfied with this purchase! The mat itself is heavier than others I have seen and it does not slide around. It is also dishwasher safe which makes my life easier. I like the fact that there is a built in bowl because that also means I'm not cleaning a bowl and plate. The suction prevents the mats from sliding, it does not prevent anyone from peeling it off the table. Yes, my two year old does this occasionally but it isn't the placemat's fault." —Jennifer Heinrich

    Get it from Amazon for $24.49.

    24. A pencil holder for people who are always losing their writing utensils and want to take a ~stab~ at a slightly silly solution.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $12+ (available in two styles).

    25. A pack of seven dishwasher-safe stretch lids that'll stretch to fit fruits, blenders, and lonely plastic containers — no more digging through drawers of mismatched lids or covering things up with flimsy plastic wrap!

    Amazon

    These are also safe to use in the freezer.

    Promising Review: "I purchased these lids in error. I thought that I was ordering a different set of lids. When they arrived, I was disappointed that I had ordered wrong ones but I have to say, boy! Was I wrong! This was the best 'mistake' I made! They stretch and fit tight on any container. I love the variety of the lid sizes and they perform very well. I'm so glad I purchased these, even though it was in error." —shanry

    Get them from Amazon for $12.78.

    26. A nightlight that's soft enough to snuggle — you can leave this on at bedtime so you won't hear a peep out of your li'l chickadee at night.

    amazon.com

    This includes a USB charging cable.

    Promising review: "I purchased this product for my six year old who is enjoying reading at night after story time. Instead of having to turn off her light on the other side of the room when she is finished, her mother and I thought this was a better idea. It has worked out beautifully. The product itself is a great little design with a soft gel like dome (chick's head) and easily turns off/on with a slight push atop of the head." —Aaron Arnold

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    27. A collapsible popcorn popper for movie-enthusiasts who love popcorn, but would also love an alternative to the microwave bags they've been using since childhood.

    Amazon

    This is dishwasher safe and BPA free.

    Promising review: "We love popcorn in this house, and generally pop a giant bowlful at a time from an air popper for a movie night (seven family members). This silicone popper makes it MUCH more practical to pop just a serving or two without buying the nasty yellow waxy bagged microwave popcorn. The quality of popcorn is just as great as we've always been accustomed to, and the amount of unpopped (waste) corn is similar to bagged microwave popcorn — in other words, minimal." —HRA

    Get it from Amazon for $15.90 (available in 15 colors).

    28. A collapsible water bottle you can roll up and stow away when you're focused on staying hydrated but also focused on carrying a reasonably sized bag.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I got this for my upcoming hiking trip and love the quality and ease with which this can be collapsed and stored. I'm also excited to bring this on my next trip to the airport, as it will save me $7 (the average cost of a water bottle at the airport)! It's easy to fill at a water fountain by the gate. Love this whole concept!" —Laurie Cook

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95 (available in eight colors).

    29. A set of six cat coasters that'll keep your friends from making you furrrocious by leaving water stains on your coffee table.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "They're coasters and man do they do the job! No more rings on my tables! They're just super adorable and guests love them." —Megan

    Get them from Amazon for $8.99.

    30. An alphabet tray set for creative cooks who know these will make breakfast more fun — no need to spell it out for them.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I use these all of the time for my kids. It is wonderful. They're flexible enough that my kids can get things out themselves and they're also dishwasher safe." —Cassandra Peereboom

    Get them from Amazon for $11.22.

    31. A keyboard cover so you can sneak in some snack time while you work without those snacks sneaking into your keys.

    Amazon

    This fits the MacBook Pro 13, 15, and 17, the 13-inch MacBook Air, and the iMac wireless keyboard.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.95 (available in 19 colors).

    32. A bottle brush that won't scratch glass but *will* make you bottles, glasses, and vases shine bright like a diamond. It'll also be far cleaner than the sponge you used to just wipe bacteria around with. Bless.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love that nothing sticks or stains the brush because it's silicone. I use it on my glassware and decanters and there are no scratches! Works great for cleaning out my water bottle too. I plan to order several more for Christmas stocking stuffers. Very pleased with my purchase!" —Snowbird

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    33. A set of five unbreakable flower vases with suction cup bottoms for parents of curious children or clever pets who seem to do their darndest to see what things look like shattered and scattered on the floor.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These are so awesome for people who have kids!!! They stick to the table so I don’t have to worry about the kids running into my table or it shifting. My flowers stay in place. I also use them in my kitchen for green onions. They are an-all around treat and savior for me." —Mame R.

    Get them from Amazon for $27.45.

    34. A set of three candle holders available in mixable hues and with a design that's sure to delight anyone who likes a little spark on their table setting — flip one side over for pillar pieces and the other for tea lights.

    Food 52

    Get them from Food 52 for $34 (available in four colors).

    35. A cup bib to catch all the food and drinks your little one can't seem to keep in their mouths (which is, as parents know, most of it). These also wipe clean, making them a quick-drying and smell/stain-free option.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought all kinds of bibs, but these are the only ones that are actually usable. These cute bibs are easy to clean, and more importantly, easy to dry. No more screaming because mommy strapped a cold, wet bib around little buddy's neck!" —HJP

    Get two from Amazon for $19.98 (available in five colors).

    36. A roll-up drying rack made with metal grates covered in soft silicone that'll prevent scratches and take up no space to store. Roll this on top of the sink when in use and tuck it away in a drawer when the dishes are done! It dries fast, so no worries about drippings in your drawers.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "We have tried to minimize the amount of stuff taking up our kitchen countertop, so we got rid of the dish rack. I still wanted the ability to dry dishes and big pots/pans after cooking, so I got this rack. Thing is AWESOME. It is extremely versatile and rolls up neatly for storage under the sink or wherever else you'd want to store it. It repels water and makes cleaning it very simple. Gunk doesn't want to stay on it and anything that does stick to it comes right off with a light scrub and some dish soap. It doesn't smell at all and is lightweight, but very sturdy and able to hold two to three big pots and pans over the sink. You can also fold it in half if you want to access the sink but want to dry a pot or some glasses while washing." —Jay C.

    Get it from Amazon for $25.

    37. A multi-use scrubber for cleaning laundry, removing scuffs off shoes, getting rid of lint and pet hair from clothes and furniture, grooming your shedding pet, cleaning your makeup, and doing your taxes. I'm pretty sure about that last one.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I just got two of these little things today and I am blown away. Within five minutes of opening, I had tried it out on the cat, cat tower, carpeted stairs, and my shirt. And WOW!! AMAZING!! It pulls off pet hair like a champ. I have a ton of hair removal items and this one is awesome. I can't wait to try it in the shower on my dry skin. Way worth the money as this is a handy tool to have. I'm ordering more." —Jen

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

    38. A flexible spoon with a one-tablespoon measure that'll stir, flip, and add the perfect amount of oil every time you sauté. Space-saving, multi-tasking kitchen tools like this may actually make cooking worth it.

    Amazon

    It's heat resistant up to 600° and designed with an ergonomic handle, stiff nylon core, and flexible angled head for easy stirring. You can also get a blender spatula, jar scraper, and assorted sizes of spoons from the same link.

    Get it from Amazon for $9 (available in four colors).

    39. A pack of beer savers for cooking, labeling your drink at parties, keeping bugs out of your bottle, or for any time you may not finish a beer but definitely don't want it going to waste.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These work as expected. We frequently buy the extra large bottles of fancier beers to try something new and don't drink the whole thing in one go, so these are perfect. They're also good if you happen to have fruit flies, because fruit flies like to taste your beer and sometimes drown in it, so these are a good solution to that problem too. These are easy to clean, inexpensive, and come with enough of them to go around." —DameEdna

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $9.99 (available in two styles).

    40. An Aquapaw Slow Treater that'll keep your fluffer in the bath long enough to finally get her fluffy! Just throw some peanut butter or other pasty treat in the grooves and let her lick away while you scrub her up!

    Amazon

    This is safe to put in the dishwasher and freezer AND it's made from FDA-grade silicone.

    Promising review: "I just finished cutting toenails on my three dogs with their total cooperation, thanks to this product. I just put squirt cheese in between the nubs of the slow treater, laid it on the grooming table, and the dogs were happily licking away while I worked on their feet. No pulling away, no second person to hold the dog, just me, some cheese, and the slow treater. I’m a fan!" —D. Dipietro

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95.

    41. A pair of heat-safe tongs – they're gonna turn over your grilled goods all BBQ season long, hold roast steady when you're cutting up family dinner, and even toss a salad when your lunch is rather light. The real question is, what can't these tongs do?

    Amazon

    Algebra, I suppose.

    Promising review: "I love these tongs. I just bought new non-stick sauté pans and wanted to keep them safe from the scratches of metal utensils. These are great. I can't believe how sturdy they are. They work wonderfully in the new pans. For me there is even an added bonus — I'm about as tall as a garden gnome and I can't reach a lot of things in my cupboards. Regular metal tongs slide off plastic containers and drop stuff. These silicone tongs are just perfect; they grab on and hold on. Yay! Great product, super price." —George S.

    Get two from Amazon for $15.97 (available in three colors).

    42. A set of decibel-reducing, noise-canceling earplugs designed to keep your ears safe and clear out any sound around you when you paid good money to hear your favorite band and definitely did *not* pay to hear the drunk people next to you slur Every. Single. Song.

    Amazon

    Promising Review: "I saw the 'vibes' on Shark Tank just the week prior to a musical festival type event I was in charge of. I quickly ordered them — we all know how loud the music is at a festival. These were fabulous and worked just as shown and as I expected. I usually leave these events with horrible ringing in my ears but not this time! I was so happy to hear the great music but not experience the ringing." —AliceP

    Get them from Amazon for $23.98.

    43. A pair of baking molds so your pastries never tear and you get Mary Berry-approved baked goods every time you open the oven.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I was a bit skeptical at first, but these little molds hold their weight and produce a beautiful product. Whatever you decide to use them for, they are worth the buy!" —Megan C Dickerson

    Get two from Amazon for $13.99 (available in three sizes).

    44. A microwave omelette maker sure to whip up an egg-celent breakfast in under five minutes. Just beat your eggs, add your ingredients, pour into the mold, and pop it in the microwave.

    Amazon

    This is made of 100% platinum silicone that's resistant to high temperatures and is dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "This brings omelettes to my weekday breakfast. I've been trying to eat a low-carb diet, and the idea of eggs for breakfast appeals to me. But, I am *so* NOT a morning person; and getting up early to stir a low-n-slow scramble just does not work for me. I've tried microwaving eggs in custard cups but they always turned out either soupy and underdone or firm but dry and rubbery. But this makes them Just Right, every time, in two minutes flat. That's less time than it takes me to brew my coffee. Two or three eggs, some herbs, a few chopped veggies, and perhaps a sprinkle of cheese makes for a quick, easy, and tasty breakfast." —Vanilla Chameleon

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    45. A set of toe caps that'll protect ingrown nails, corns, blisters, and other painful areas by keeping them from rubbing when your shoes are on. The material also moisturizes your skin to promote healing and keep you from feeling de-feet-ed by your feet.

    amazon.com

    These are waterproof and reusable!

    Promising review: "This is an unbelievable product! I work 12 hour shifts in the hospital and need protection for the corn on my left great toe. I purchased the size large and it fit well. I completely forgot I was wearing it underneath my socks and athletic shoes — bonus! The silicone is very soft, flexible, cleans easily. Would absolutely recommend this since it has held up quite well for the 17 hours I have it on (from the time I wake up until I am back from my shift). Cleans and dries easily and has maintained its shape." —LJ

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $10.99 (available in two sizes and colors).

    46. A scalp-massaging shampoo brush to help prevent dandruff and promote hair growth by stimulating your scalp, all while feeling like a salon-level shampoo massage.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "The bristles are a soft but sturdy silicone so there's enough pressure to exfoliate and massage scalp, but not so stiff that it would break hair shafts. Using this is a great way to get my scalp cleaner without damaging my nails. And it feels great too! A+ product, highly recommend!" —HeatherBree23

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

    47. A Twist Whisk you can turn into a ballon or flat whisk with the twist of your wrist. Say that five times fast and you get one for free.
