1. A Lodge pre-seasoned cast-iron skillet for up to 63% off. Almost half-price on a kitchen tool that'll last you years (and years, and years)? Yes please.

Amazon

These have over 13,500 positive reviews!!!

Promising review: "This is my third Lodge skillet. I typically use my 12-inch one for everything, but I live alone, and the eight-inch is perfect for eggs or grilled cheese. My twelve-inch has been perfect for years and this one is well on its way. They're so low maintenance and great, heavy quality." —Britta

Now: $4.99+ (originally $13.52+; available in 15 sizes)

2. A Stila eyeliner for 30% off with a formula worthy of the cult-like praise it gets: it dries quickly, won't smudge or budge, lasts 25 hours a day, and the thin tip makes application a summer breeze.

instagram.com

This cruelty-free, waterproof liner is perfect for day-to-night wear! The fine-tip applicator allows you to draw on a thin line, but it's also easy to add a few extra swipes for a more dramatic nighttime look.

Promising review: "Stila is the absolute best liquid eyeliner I have ever tried. It doesn't fade or crack and stays on through sleeping or tears. Very, very smudge proof and it does not flake AT ALL. It dries quickly and even though it is waterproof (as long as you don't touch it excessively) it stays. It's also easy to clean off at the end of the day. No hard scrubbing to get it off, makeup wipes will take it off easily. It's amazing for creating perfect wings, or drawing artfully for Halloween. It's perfect for everyday from subtle looks, to more creative and wild. I can use this eyeliner for months at a time (at least doing wings every day or so) without having to repurchase because it has dried out or was empty. Just shake before using each time, and it should last for several months, (2-5) depending on the usage daily and if it is stored/used properly." —Chick

Now: $15.40 (originally $22; available in nine colors)

3. An Amazon Fire TV Stick for 50% off to make bingeing your favorite shows even easier. Just use the Alexa voice remote and you can find whatever you're looking for — easy peasy.

Amazon

Promising review: "Absolutely beast. It can easily overshadow other competitions (Roku and Dish TV) with clarity of streaming and overall user interface. It's easy to operate and has a really easy 2-step set up (without any fuss). The remote is well designed with inbuilt Alexa voice activation button, which sets you free with all voice commands and actions. Purchase and get amazed with this one special device. Highly recommended." —Yash Parikh

Now: $24.99 (originally $49.99)

4. An extendable Swiffer duster kit for 30% off to give you an easy, quick dusting that takes little effort on your part (ayyy, my type of cleanin'!). Really, you could just walk around dragging this behind you and it would pick up dirt like a magnet.

Amazon

Kit comes with the Swiffer handle and 12 (!!!) dusters.

I didn't expect to love this thing so much, but it makes dusting so easy and something I don't mind doing weekly. The extra long handle lets you get to those hard-to-reach places, and the replaceable heads are so convenient. It takes me a total of five minutes to run this over the main surfaces of my house to reduce dust, which is suuuuper important for my partner who has severe allergies.

Now: $12.59 for a Swiffer handle and 12 dusters (originally $17.99)

5. Howard Feed-N-Wax wood polish for 43% off that over 3,000 reviewers swear by, and you can see why in these downright miraculous before-and-after photos.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I read about this in a BuzzFeed article. I read the reviews and looked at the images posted by reviewers and I figured for under $10, why not. Our house is about 20 years old and things are starting to just look worn. Add kids and a dog to the house and you have plenty of scratched up or water-stained wood. This is magic in a bottle! The first picture is a door the dog scratched up. While the scratches are still there, you can no longer see them. The other picture is of a window that was left cracked open when we were gone and it rained. The wood was trashed. Now it looks brand new. I bought this on a whim and now I have added it to my monthly Subscribe and Save." —ByteMe

Now: $8.48 (originally $14.98)

6. A windproof umbrella for 35% off with a Teflon coating that easily folds down into a travel-friendly size so you're always prepared when the unexpected rainstorm hits. They always do!

Amazon

Promising review: "This umbrella is FANTASTIC. It opens/closes smooth and fast. So far it has worked great in the wind and rain. It seems to be quite sturdy. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a compact and easy to use umbrella." —Victor J

Now: $19.50 (originally $29.95)

7. A matte Maybelline SuperStay liquid lipstick for 30% off. You can hypothetically fall asleep whilst wearing this — and it will still look great when you wake up in the AM. This magic stuff has a staying power of up to 16 hours, which means it must be the byproduct of some sort of sorcery. I know.

instagram.com / Via @maybelline, Jennifer Tonti/BuzzFeed

Check out one BuzzFeeder's full review of this lippie here (#1).

Promising review: "I love this lipstick! I fell asleep with it on and it stayed on all night. Plus, it has amazing pigment and dries within about five minutes. As a busy mom, I probably won't be trying out any other lipsticks for a while." —A. Williamson

Now: $3.61+ (originally $5.16+, available in 26 colors)

8. An OPI top coat for 35% off that will give your at-home mani extra shine and (more importantly) prevent any smudges or chips for up to seven days. Must be some sort of sorcery, I know.

Amazon

Promising review: "It goes on like any other top coat, only slightly thicker. True to their claims, the product dries super shiny and stays that way, with a thickness that almost looks like gel nails. My manicure lasted a full week without a single chip. It also comes off with regular nail polish remover and without soaking." —Karen D.

Now: $6.83 (originally $10.50)

9. A smart plug for 31% off that truly lives up to its name — you can sync it with your smart home devices or control it through an app to easily turn lights and appliances on and off.

Amazon

Through the app, you can even set a schedule for when to power certain devices on and off — basically a dream come true for anyone who hates wasting money on electricity. It's compatible with Alexa, Microsoft Cortona, and Google Assistant, and it's so easy and convenient that it has over 12,800 positive Amazon reviews!

Promising review: "This is a great, affordable smart outlet. It works flawlessly with the Echo. You set it up on your network via the Kasa app first, and then you can successfully set up the connection to your Echo via the Alexa mobile app. Once we completed the setup on the Kasa side, adding it to Echo was a snap. I use it for a standing lamp and for the air conditioner. I want to buy these things every time they're on sale, but I have a hard time justifying it to my wife." —Johnny Phive

Now: $11.68 (originally $16.99)

10. Mario Badescu facial spray for 25% off infused with green tea, cucumber, and peppermint essential oil to perk up tired skin. Plus, this can set and refresh your makeup, give foundation a dewy appearance, and help keep breakouts at bay.

instagram.com / Via @mariobadescu

Promising review: "This stuff is amazing and definitely a holy grail for me. I have naturally oily skin and am acne-prone. This has helped with my acne issues, keeps my oil under control, and really has improved the overall feel and appearance of my skin. I use it in the morning after a shower and follow with my normal skin regimen. A must have, in my opinion!" —Amanda N.

Now: $10.50 for a two-pack (originally $14; deal also available on a regular and travel size combo pack)

Check out BuzzFeed's full write-up on this spray.

11. The LOL-worthy card game Exploding Kittens for 30% off to upgrade your hangouts from just scrolling Instagram and watching a movie together to creating truly hilarious, competitive chaos. I mean, 10,000 reviewers can't be wrong about how fun it is, right?

Amazon, amazon.com

The NSFW version is also 30% off — check it out here.

Promising review: "My wife and I sat down to enjoy our first game of Exploding Kittens and had a ball. She didn't think she was going to enjoy this game very much, based on the name. Twenty minutes later, and she was laughing her kitten-loving head off. Disclaimer: No actual kittens were exploded during the making of this game. It was the Rainbow-Ralphing Cat card that did it to her. Ever hear of the artist called The Oatmeal? He's the artistic genius whose talent is depicted on each and every card. This is the card game that made history by being one of the most backed Kickstarter campaigns ever." —Biognome

Now: $13.99 (originally $19.99)

12. An RFID-blocking wristlet for up to 28% off that's a chic and secure way to carry around all your valuables.

Amazon

Promising review: "This wallet is perfect! Absolutely everything I need to put in it fits. I've tried a few like this, but it seems like there is always something I can't get inside of it. Of course I love the RFID blocking. I also love that I don't have to struggle to get the cards out of the slots. I have RA and my fingers are not strong or nimble. Anything I can use that puts less stress on my hands is a keeper! The leather is soft and beautiful. The zipper works effortlessly. This wallet is a winner...all the way around!" —Margaret H.

Now: $21.59+ (originally $26.99+; available in 27 colors)

13. A Cerama-Bryte cooktop cleaning kit for 28% off, which includes cooktop cleaning solution, a scrubbing pad, and a scraper so you can absolutely remove every bit of baked- and caked-on food from any smooth range — no matter how long it's been there.

amazon.com

Promising review: "This is a game changer! Had the hardest time finding something to clean my stove without scratching the surface. This thing works wonders. You can use the yellow sponge that comes with it or just use paper towels. Works great. It is also good on many surfaces, not just the stovetop. I recommended it to my family and they all loved it!" —BaiSam

Now: $11.50 (originally $15.99)

14. A stainless steel Takeya water bottle for up to 35% off that keeps drinks ice cold for up to 24 hours or hot for up to 12 hours. Staying hydrated and caffeinated has never been so easy!

amazon.com

Promising review: "I love this water bottle. This sucker keeps drinks cold and ice cubes solid for hours upon hours. I was truly amazed the first time I used it. And I’m not talking, like, it keeps things slightly cold after hours...it keeps things ice cold for hours. I’ve had this water bottle for over a year now, use it frequently, and it still looks brand new." —EH4

Now: $15.45+ (originally $20.05+, available in five colors and in five sizes)

15. The sing-along edition of both Mamma Mia! movies for 32% off. Yes, I know, when you're watching it right, ~any~ version of Mamma Mia! is the sing-along version, but the movies in this set allow you turn on the sing-along lyrics feature during the whole dang cinematic masterpiece. Plus, there's a whole third disc of bonus features!

Amazon

Gimme gimme gimme.

Now: $16.87 (originally $24.98)

16. A two-pack of screen protectors for 25% off (compatible with iPhone 7 and 8) so that when you drop your phone and it lands face down, you won't have to hold your breath and pray that it's not cracked before hesitantly picking it up.

Amazon

Promising review: "I am a bad and careless phone owner who drop her phone almost everyday. Fortunately, this screen protector and my phone case work well together, so my phone doesn't have any damage. The damage is only on my screen protector and the phone case. I love this screen protector, and would like to purchase it again!" —Joy

Now: $5.99 (originally $7.99)

17. A 3rd Generation Echo Dot for 56% off so you can stream songs, ask questions, read the news, check the weather, set alarms, and do sooooo much more — all with one command.

Amazon

Promising review: "Sounds quality and functionality is perfect!! Setting timers, checking the weather, and playing our favorite tunes — it's just perfect for the entire family." —DMC

Now: $22 (originally $49.99)

18. A subscription to a favorite magazine for just $0.99, because you're gonna need something to read on the beach the rest of the summer!

Amazon

19. A Dash mini waffle maker for 34% off that'll motivate you to actually get up and make breakfast. Sunday mornings, meet your new favorite tradition — WAFFLES.

Amazon

This waffle maker heats up super quickly, is designed with non-stick pans, and is fairly no-frills: just plug it in, pour in some batter, and wait for the light to turn green. Your waffles are now ready and you basically did nothing. Plus, it comes with a neat little recipe book!

Promising review: "This little cutie makes a great waffle! My daughter is very picky, but she loves to make the mix and eat the finished heart-shaped product. The waffles are tiny, but so cute and delicious. The maker itself heats up quickly and the light will go on and off to indicate when the waffle is ready. It takes about 90 seconds to cook and comes out easily." —Jeff Handy

Now: $9.89 (originally $14.99, available in nine colors)

20. A pet hair–removing roller for 29% off with a patented brush design (and *no* adhesive strips) to rid your lovely black sofa of all your furry friend's shedding in a quick roll — so you can get back to cuddling together.

youtube.com

It has 3,000 five-star reviews!

Promising review: "Where has this been all my crazy cat-loving life? Sticky rollers work fine for clothes but this is the only product that has ever COMPLETELY removed all the cat hair from my bed. I have a long-haired 20-pound. tabby and if you run your hands up his back a few times and fling the hair everywhere, it looks like it's snowing – he never stops shedding no matter what I do. After using the ChomChom, I can put on a black dress and roll around on my bed and not get a single hair on me. It's absolutely amazing. Everyone is getting one for Christmas, even if they don't have a pet. I don't care, it's THAT good." —Stephanie

Now: $24.95 (originally $34.99)

21. A TubShroom for 35% off that catches allll your hair to prevent clogged shower drains and eventual plumbing problems (which are not fun).

Sarah Aspler

Promising review: "This is absolutely worth every penny. I have thick long dark hair, and after two months of moving into my own apartment, my shower drain was completely clogged. After being disgusted at the amount of hair I cleaned out with a snake (which is NOT fun), I decided to prevent it from happening again. I read about this product on BuzzFeed, and I have no regrets. It is so satisfying to clean out, and it does not lie when it says it catches every single hair. I have had it for close to four months without once instance of my shower drain backing up. This product is absolutely worth it." —Jess

Now: $12.99 (originally $19.95; available in five colors)

Read one BuzzFeeder's review of the TubShroom.

22. A pack of 42 flexible hair curling rods in various sizes for $35% off that you can play around with to create all sorts of curls and waves. After all, they've already made over 4,500 reviewers believe in curl power.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I'm absolutely in love with these. I have very straight hair and it has always been a challenge for my hair to hold a curl. These are easy to use and there are so many different styles you can create. I love that they come with different sizes to create many different looks, from loose curls to waves to tight curls — not to mention my hair seems to hold a curl all day. I'm so happy with them. I also use them on my daughter who has curly hair. I love that I can pop these in her hair the night before school with a small amount of leave-in conditioner, and the next day her curls are coiled and more manageable and just beautiful. They came in a easy-to-carry case for on-the-go." —Crystal harris

Now: $12.99 (originally $19.99)

23. A bottle of fan-fave Bioderma micellar water for 34% off. This oil-free facial cleanser removes all pore-clogging makeup, dirt, and gunk from your face without making it feel overly tight or dry. And no water required? Hooray!

Amazon

Promising review: "AMAZING product. I don’t know what I did before Micellar. My friend recommended this brand to me and after researching a TON, I couldn’t be more thrilled with my choice. It has forever changed the way I cleanse my face! My pores are tighter and I have less breakouts (even though I thought they were seldom before)! I have ordered this twice and will continue use." —Amazon Customer

Now: $9.90 (originally $14.90)

24. A Differin acne treatment for 20% off made to fight inflammation, regulate skin cell turnover, and prevent pimples and clogged pores.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I’ve had acne since i was in middle school, all different types. I’ve tried everything but Differin is the product that’s helped me the most.

First off: STOP USING OTHER ACNE PRODUCTS WITH DIFFERIN! In the beginning at least. Just let differin do what it needs to do, and use a natural and gentle cleanser and apply Differin, wait til' it absorbs and apply a light moisturizer. These pictures are eight months apart. At first my skin did burn and break out (or 'purge'), but it lasted only a couple months. I believe it was worth it. My skin's better than it ever has been. It just *looks* healthier overall. I still have some scarring, but i haven’t had cystic acne in months. If you try this product STICK WITH IT! It’s not going to clear your skin in a day or even a week. No product will. Be patient." —aria

Now: $17.38 for a pack of two (originally $24.99)

25. A paraben- and cruelty-free Stila mascara for 30% off that will get you the most coveted compliment of all time: Are those your real lashes? This adds volume, curl, and clump-free lift with just a single swipe.

Amazon

Promising review: "This is HANDS DOWN THE BEST MASCARA!!! I have worked in the cosmetic industry and still follow all the latest products. Price is no issue when it comes to great cosmetics, so I have tried them all from drugstore to high-end. I received a sample of this at Sephora and was blown away! I have never used such an amazing mascara. Longest lashes, even application, non-clumping, and you can even reapply more after it is dry! It is amazing beyond what I could describe in words. You won't be disappointed with this one, and won't need to ever try a different mascara. The search ends here for perfect long lashes!" —Nan Markert

Now: $16.10 (originally $23)

26. Trendy cat-eye sunnies for 20% off that have made over 4,000 reviewers feel made in the shade.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "Total luxury for what you pay!! They came fast, packaged very well! I've already received tons of compliments and people can't believe how little I paid!" —Samantha Briegel

Now: $10.49 (originally $12.99; available in 12 colors)

27. A BuzzFeed Unsolved tee for $8 off that will make all the Shaniacs out there jump for joy.

amazon.com

Now: $9.99 (originally $17.99; available in sizes S–XXL and two colors).

28. A Stila liquid eyeshadow for 30% off that, with just one quick swipe, will take your makeup ~lewk~ from day to night real quick. And while this cruelty-free formula may be super pigmented, it results in absolutely no fallout.

Amazon

Promising review: "I AM OBSESSED WITH THIS STUFF. I bought kitten karma and then i went back and bought diamond dust and golden goddess. GREAT glitter payout with little to no fallout if you do it correctly (apply it after the rest of your eyeshadow), and you don't have to worry about the mess of glitter glue and messy loose glitter. I have accidentally slept in this overnight, twice, and was able to rock the glitter eyeshadow to work the next day with no touchups. And I didn't even use an eyeshadow primer either time, although I did use a setting spray." —Stephanie

Now: $16.80 (originally $24; available in seven colors)

29. An adorable two-pack of onesies for $30% off that'll make any kiddo want to put on a fashion show.

Amazon

Promising review: "These are a good fit and true to size. My son just turned eight months and is a little big for his age. He's been wearing these since seven months and will probably get another month of wear out of them. These have survived several washes, leaky diapers, spit up and crawling around. I get lots of compliments on how cute they are!!" —MommaMeg

Now: $11.50 (originally $16.49; available in sizes newborn-6/9 months and in eight designs)

30. A Sexy Hair texturizing powder for 30% off that'll instantly liquify to provide fullness and slight tackiness (which makes your hot tool so much more effective).

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "Background details: I have fine, but pretty dense hair that tends to pull flat at the crown and absorbs oil and moisture like a sponge. It has a slight wave and tends to frizz, so even air drying is out of the question. It also usually refuses to hold a style, slips easily out of most clips and fasteners, and collapses if curled. Hairspray won't hold it, gel makes it crackly, and if I try to wear it down, it just slithers into my face and picks up oil from my skin. And it's humid as all get-out here. Ugh. I used this on my roots (at the crown) of day two hair with a scant spritz of dry shampoo at the temples, and at the end of the day, I've still got volume and texture, and my style (down, not pulled back) actually stayed in place. My hair doesn't look greasy or limp, and I don't feel totally disgusting. I'm sold and will absolutely purchase this again!" —Heather

Now: $11.95 (originally $16.95)

31. A Mizon Snail Care moisturizer set for 20% off, made with actual snail mucus that'll surprisingly leave your face looking fresh.

Amazon

Promising review: "This is the first eye cream I've ever used, so I can't compare it to any other product, but I will say that I absolutely love it so far! When I first got it I was concerned by how little there was, but after using it I realized that you need so little for every use that this tiny container will most likely last me at least half a year if not longer. It's such a rich, smooth texture, but absorbs quickly without leaving a sticky film, and leaves my eyes feeling so much better." —Bunny

Now: $17.58 (originally $21.98)

32. Cravings by Chrissy Teigen for 30% off, because apparently Chrissy eats as well as she tweets.

Amazon

Promising review: "One-phrase review of this cookbook: Shockingly fantastic. Like, shocked shocked. Stunned and surprised. Unexpected feelings. OK, composing self to write actual sentences. I fully expected to hate-read this cookbook. Sure, I enjoy a lot of Chrissy Teigen's tweets. She's that rare famous person who makes themselves extremely publicly accessible, but in an actual authentic way. Her online presence doesn't appear to be artfully constructed by a PR firm. She replies to trolls. She talks about buying giant bear stuffed animals from shopping TV. She talks about her husband in a normal, loving, supportive way. She's a reminder that yes, celebrity is another plane of existence, but it's still a career, and she's still a human being. I promised I would give a recipe or two a try, but that I was probably going to pass this book along to someone else for their amusement. Anyway, I was wrong. This cookbook is awesome. The recipes? They're GREAT and accessible. Unique, but familiar. Things I will make again. Dare I say, some new favorites even?" —Paul Post

Now: $20.99 (originally $29.99)

33. Two packs of four Clorox automatic toilet bowl cleaners for 18% off that will keep your toilet looking fresh and clean. And the amount of effort it takes? None. Just flush and go about your merry way.

Amazon

Promising review: "These saved my toilet! Our local water has the tendency to cause buildup in the toilets, tubs, and sinks. The problem lies in the toilet's when my son forgets/neglects to flush and the bowl takes on a yellowish look as the urine soaks into the buildup. These bleach tablets not only add a clean smell, they keep the hard water/mossy deposits at bay. Instead of violently scrubbing the bowl weekly to control buildup, now I just replace the tablet when it dissolves and the bowl stays new looking. Can't believe I went so long fighting the bowl instead of using these." —Nicholas M. Walker

Now: $17.56 (originally $21.37)
