    1. High-waist workout shorts that'll help you achieve your fitness (or lounging 🙋🏿‍♀️😋!) goals in something stretchy and comfortable this summer ~or~ to wear underneath your dresses if you hate wearing slips. They've got the moisture-wicking fabric and have a pocket for safely storing your phone.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Multiple reviewers noted that they wear the shorts underneath dresses to prevent chafing on their thighs. Reviewers also shared that they wore these for everything from running marathons to running errands 🏃🏿‍♀️💨.

    Five-star reviews: 2,090+

    Promising review: "These shorts are amazing! I ordered a pair to wear under a dress and wound up wearing them a lot more! I played in a throwback softball tournament and wore them to our practices. Half of our team ended up ordering a pair! They don’t roll down and the pocket is awesome. They are my go-to shorts! I’m a bigger girl. I normally wear a size 18 or 20 in pants and these feel like they hold you in and don’t show too much. They're the perfect length and very comfortable too. Be sure to use their sizing chart!! I would normally wear an XL but luckily, I measured and ordered an XXXL. We wore them for three back-to-back games in 90-degree weather and no chafing occurred!" —Tiffany

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes XS-5XL; free shipping on any pairs $25 or more).

    You can also put this baby in the freezer to get an even more soothing sensation if you're experiencing a headache.

    Five-star reviews: 2,020+

    Promising review: "I love this product for migraines, tension, and headaches. It cools the eye area. It’s incredibly soft if you can’t stand to feel texture while experiencing a migraine. I keep it in a plastic bag in the freezer so it won’t pick up smells. I think it’s filled with gel beads to hold the coldness in. It has two hooks to make it tighter if needed. The minute I put it on, I have relief. I don’t take meds for my migraines yet. I am hesitant to go that route. I turn off the lights and put headphones on and have to lay down. This keeps out all light even near the nose area. It’s hands-down a miracle." —Jenn A.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.54.

    3. Plant-based bug repellent that'll keep the lil' icky creatures from impeding on your good time — with a DEET-free formula that won't irritate your skin.

    Five-star reviews: 3,540+

    Promising review: "We love this product for when we are sitting in the backyard. It’s amazing and smells great with eucalyptus and lemon! It’s more natural and the mosquitoes stay away! We love it much better than the OFF! products." —Danish2011

    Get it from Amazon for $4.97.

    4. An air fryer so the to-cook-or-not decision will rarely be up in the ~air. This thing'll fry stuff up fast without you having to pull out the oil, brave popping grease, stand on your feet looking over a pot, OR do too much cleanup.

    Wayfair

    Five-star review: 1,000+

    The air fryer can cook raw and frozen foods and it's good for preparing french fries, sweet potato nuggets, chicken wings, and more.

    Promising reviews: "I absolutely love this purchase! So far, I have used every day since I brought it and have cooked everything from breakfast to dinners in it. You can actually taste the difference in the foods you make and see the oils that would have been in them, had you made it on the stove. Another convenience with this is that it cuts cooking time in half!" —Evelyn

    Get it from Wayfair for $49.99 (originally $99.99; available in three colors).

    5. A comfy memory foam pillow to give your neck and back the reprieve they deserve while you watch TV, read a book, or do anything else that you'll want to be propped up for.

    amazon.com

    Five-star reviews: 1,980+

    Promising review: "I like napping and I like reading in bed. It only took me twenty years to figure out they made pillows for reading. For years, my bed has been a fort of pillows trying to prop this and that up and get comfortable. I love this pillow. I ordered another one for the guest bedroom. I inadvertently fell asleep (mom of an active toddler) and woke up with my head resting on the armrests. Sounds like an awkward way to way up, but it was so comfortable. It was like waking up embraced in a comforting hug." —C. Schwab

    Get it from Amazon for $35.93+ (available in two colors and two sizes).

    6. NYX Cosmetics eyeliner reviewers say will have your cat eye looking purr-fect! Everyone who spots you wearing it will be just ~clawing~ to find out where you got it from!

    Btw, NYX Cosmetics is cruelty-free, baby!

    Five-star reviews: 1,560+

    Promising review: "I don't usually write reviews but I had to rave about this eyeliner because it's amazing. My go-to eyeliner used to be the Kat Von D Tattoo liner but this is my new favorite. I think the quality is even better overall. Plus it's at least $10 cheaper. It basically fits all of the requirements I would want in my perfect eyeliner. It's affordable, extremely black, opaque, easy to use, waterproof, stays on for a long time, and the tip is quite thin so you can get wings as sharp as a sword. I also usually have to use makeup remover and concealer to clean up my lines but I barely need to do any maintenance with this. My cat eyes have been turning out so clean and beautiful." —Caiti

    Get it from Amazon for $6.29.

    7. A moisturizing oil blend that you can use to slick down every square inch of your bawdy to banish dryness. Loads of reviewers swear this thing'll have a hand in changing your life if you have dry skin (especially chronic dry scalp), eczema, psoriasis, and more.

    Five-star reviews: 3,510+

    Promising review: "I am a recent customer but holy cow, this oil is unbelievable. Initially, I bought it to use on my hands to get my nails back in shape after a rough patch. Now, I slather this stuff all over. I use it on my face and neck at night. I use it on my feet, my hands, legs, elbows... My skin is so soft and smooth and the fine lines on my face and the bags under my eyes are so much better. My skin is really sensitive so pretty much everything makes me break out, but not this oil. If anything, it’s healing everything beautifully. And the smell...oh my gosh, the smell...it’s wonderful. Very lavender. I’m in love with this oil and just purchased 10 more bottles since my mother and friend love it as much as I do." —AVT

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    8. A Cat Dancer wire toy that's so simple in design and looks but will give your kitty THE time of its nine lives.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Five-star reviews: 3,960+

    Promising review: "I have a whole room filled with cat toys that my cat is not interested in. It's funny how the least expensive cat toy I have makes him go wild. He plays with this until he's panting like a dog and I've never seen him jump so high. I'm certain this toy will help him lose his belly. He loves it! I highly recommend it!" —Kwoo

    Get it from Amazon for $2.09.

    9. Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara so you increase your lash real estate without having to grab the tweezers and falsies.

    Five-star reviews: 6,040+

    Promising review: "The price is right! I love this mascara because it makes my eyelashes pop! It doesn’t smear all over and it lasts all day! It’s not clumpy nonsense. It goes on perfectly!" —Shelby C.

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99 (available as a single and in multiple sets).

    10. Yankee Candles that come in so many fantastical scents you prob won't be able to just snag one. Want your home to forever smell like a Wedding Day (my mom has this one. translation = gardenias)? Or how about "A Calm And Quiet Place" (jasmine)? Your ~wick~ is my command!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    There's literally a scent for your every mood and fantasy and even the smallest size in the bunch is meant to burn between 35 to 45 hours.

    Five-star reviews: 2,320+

    Promising review: "I had no idea what a Yankee candle was and why everyone was freaking out about them. These really DO last forever. I like to burn candles throughout the day and evenings and it's barely made a dent in it. Great candle! Can't wait to try other scents." —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in six sizes and numerous scents).

    11. The Becoming memoir by former first lady, Michelle Obama – which readers say will be the ultimate page-turner thanks to loads of inspiring stories and life lessons shared in a relatable, easy-to-read way.

    Promising review: "It's so hard to put Becoming down and not want to flip to the next page. I love it so much! I highly recommend reading Michelle Obama's book whether you are a fan of hers or not. This book is raw to its core and phenomenal in all ways." —Betina

    Get it from Amazon for $11.89+ (available in hardcover, Kindle, and Amazon Audible options. Woot!).

    12. A gel and memory foam cushion so your tush will be extra comfy when you sit in the same position for extended periods of time.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    You can use it in the house, in your car, and when you have to sit in an office. Several reviewers noted that this was a welcome comfort for their sciatica. However, if you have any severe pain troubles, please be sure to consult with your doctor about what the best at-home cushions and pillows are for you. (100% satisfaction guarantee that offers a replacement or refund if you don't love it.)

    Five-star reviews: 5,540+

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this cushion. I work from home right now and my chair is one of my kitchen chairs. This makes sitting for hours on end doing my work a little more comfortable. It offers support for my lower back and the cut out for my tailbone makes it comfortable to sit." —Liz Coffrey

    Get it from Amazon for $32.95.

    13. A scissor-skills activity kit to help younger kids practice using scissors in a safe, fun way. The set will come with a book of 20 pre-printed activity pages and a pair of bladeless plastic scissors that are meant to only cut paper. This'll totally make the ~cut~ for anyone home with young children who are still learning the basics.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    The cut-outs start off super easy and increase in difficulty as a kid gets more comfortable and progresses through the book.

    Five-star reviews: 1,000+

    Promising review: "I wanted to get some kid-friendly scissors for my 4-year-old to practice with and this set was perfect! I have two boys and I really didn’t want them (4 and 2) to have an actual blade. I really like the variety of the cuts on the illustrations too." —Savannah Dison

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    14. A deep dish cuddler bed that's SO ADORABLE, you'll probs turn to mush every time you see your cat or small dog snuggling in it.

    Five-star reviews: 3,300+

    Promising review: "My cats love it!! One loves the seclusion of the cup and the other always pulls it on its side so it looks like a clam shell. It fits how both of them like to lay and sleep." —Tracey Streitmatter

    Get it from Amazon for $25.98 (available in two sizes and multiple colors).

    15. Waterproof workout socks for anyone who spends a lot of time being active in- or outdoors. Honestly, if the "when I move you move, just like that" lyric were a shoe, it would def be this flexible design. Word to Ludacris.

    amazon.com

    When we're all heading back out and about, these'll even fold up so you can toss them in a bag for on-the-go days. Reviewers raved about how good these shoes were for doing A TON OF THINGS, including yoga, hydrotherapy, water aerobics, grocery store runs, gardening, working in hospitals and classrooms, hiking, walking on the beach, chilling around the house, etc.

    Five-star reviews: 3,420+

    Promising review: "I purchased these with the intention of wearing them just for kayaking. Now, they've become my favorite house shoe. I couldn't take them off after trying them on. They were so comfortable and fit so well. I can't stand the feeling of being barefoot in the house and with spring being upon us, slippers are out of the question... So far so good in the house and they survived their first trip through the washing machine as well. I will most likely be buying more of these. Excellent!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.88+ (available in 4-13 in women's and 3-12 in men; comes in 44 color options; free shipping).

    16. A cute bodycon tank dress for days when you want to step out and look stylish yet casual AND days when you want to kick it around the house and look very mirror selfie-ready.

    Nordstrom

    Five-stars: 2,000+

    This is a basic dress design that you can wear one day with sneakers and another day with heels. Yay versatility!

    Promising review: "I love this dress! I am petite (5-foot-3 with a 24-inch waist and a 32-inch bust) and usually have a hard time finding dresses that fit as intended. I got this dress in XS and it's perfect! It's not too tight and the length is not too short or too long. It can easily be dressed up or down and is also super comfy. I first got it in grey but once it went on sale again, I got it in black as well. I'm considering if I want it in green too." —Jpwash

    Get it from Nordstrom for $28+ (originally $56; available in eight colors and sizes XXS-XL; free shipping).

    17. Foot peel masks to remove the dead skin from your paws so they feel smooth and soft again. The masks will cause your feet to peel in layers over the course of a few days and when it's all said and done? Softness abounds!

    The left side shows a reviewer's foot with calluses all over the bottom of it. The right side shows the same foot after the foot peel and it's completely clear of all calluses.
    amazon.com

    The remover is made with aloe vera and vitamin E to soothe and smooth the skin.

    Five-star reviews: 2,000+

    Promising review: "I was nervous about buying these because I had never used a foot peel before but my feet were rough, especially my heels. I decided to try this. My feet started peeling about day four. I followed the directions exactly. It took about two weeks for my feet to look really good. I put socks on at night when I went to bed because they do peel really bad (but in a good way!) for a couple of weeks. I bought a tub of O'Keeffe's Foot Cream that I used at night as well and that seemed to help the peeling process toward the end." —Court Hummel
    Get it from Amazon for $27.99 (two pairs in one pack).

    18. Nail glue so you can elongate the time you're able to keep your press-ons ~or~ repair any cracks on your natural nails.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Five-star reviews: 1,750+

    Promising review (for false nails): "This glue is amazing for full coverage glue-on nails! My nails are very soft and they peel and bend back very easily. I love buying full coverage nails and gluing them on... If you coarsely file your nail bed (not too hard), this glue holds for at least three weeks. I wash dishes, laundry, clean and shower daily..." —Raven Marie Fontaine Horn

    Promising review (for nail repair): "I wish I knew about this product years ago. I’ve always had problems with my thumbnails breaking! I’ve used this on my thumbs twice now and it’s a miracle! I’ve had to reapply after a week or so which is probably due to washing hands/showering. But it holds the nail together perfectly so I can wait for it to grow out some instead of having to cut them super short!! I’ve introduced this to a few friends who are also amazed! I didn’t bother smoothing it out or anything... I just put the glue on, let it dry, and waited for it to grow out." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $1.99.

    19. Green Gobbler Drain Clog Dissolver to gobble up hair and other gunk taking up space in your drains in minutes! You can use it for toilets, sinks, and tubs.

    Green Gobbler is plant-based, biodegradable (yayyy environment 🌏!), odorless, and non-corrosive so it won't damage your pipes in the process.

    Five-star reviews: 6,300+

    Promising review: "OK... So I have to do a little review on this product BECAUSE I have had a stopped-up kitchen sink and have LITERALLY tried EVERYTHING down to the industrial products with NO luck. I decided to go on Amazon and read a few reviews. This is the one I decided to go with. I only used one chamber, let it set for an hour, and then used boiling water. My sink is NO LONGER stopped up!!! I saved a plumber bill and this was $11.97. HUGE win for this woman!!" —Tabpeach

    Get it from Amazon for $11.97.

    20. A George Foreman grill for indoor and outdoor use that'll work for big or small families AND larger homes and apartments. Now, we just have to figure out how you're going to teleport me a plate.

    amazon.com

    The grill has non-stick coating, a removable stand so you can convert it to a countertop grill, adjustable temperature control, and requires no charcoal, no propane, and no flare-ups. It'll also come with a dishwasher-safe drip tray. You're getting all the fixins honey! Woot!

    Five-star reviews: 2,660+

    Promising review: "I love this grill! Simplicity is golden! There's no fuss and very little mess, it requires no running around for charcoal or propane, and cleanup is easy, especially when you have the convenience of grilling right outside your door vs. your kitchen. But this is also good for indoors and can be transformed to use on your counter-top if needed. I was hesitant at first because we really wanted a propane or charcoal grill for our patio but our apartment complex doesn't allow either of them. This electric grill was the perfect solution for healthy, easy, and personal convenience!" —H. Chadwick

    Get it from Amazon for $89.99 (free shipping).

    21. A blingy steering wheel cover for anyone who lives to add sparkle to literally every area of their life. You'll totally be serving glitz and glamour at the red lights and everywhere else.

    22. Mold and mildew remover gel to keep the hard-to-clean nooks and crannies in your home — especially your bathroom — clear of buildup and germs.

    amazon.com

    Just apply it, let it sit for six to eight hours, and then scrub away. It's meant to work on tiles, grout, sealants, tubs, sinks, showers, and more. Heads up: For more longstanding mildew buildup, several reviewers noted they had to do more than one treatment for the area but that they did still get results.

    Five-star reviews: 2,030+

    Promising review: "I love having a clean house. My shower has been something that seemed to never get clean enough no matter what I used on it. I have scrubbed and scrubbed this stain with so many other products. This is by far the BEST cleaner I have ever used. I got results after one use. I left it on the surface for six hours. I highly recommend this product." —RaeB

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    23. Activated charcoal toothpaste that so many reviewers swear will help make your teeth several shades lighter. It'll also treat bad breath.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Public service announcement: Ya' gotta be careful with the charcoal peeps! Doctors have confirmed that activated charcoal can whiten your teeth (yay!) but excessive usage can weaken the enamel of your teeth (boooo!). I recommend you use this toothpaste to whiten your teeth and keep the tube around for when you need it occasionally. Everything in moderation, peeps! Ah yes, and you should also understand that activated charcoal toothpaste is good for surface-level stains made by coffee, wine, dark foods, etc... For deeper stains beneath the surface of your teeth, your best bet is the dentist's office. Last thing: This toothpaste is vegan, and it's fluoride-, peroxide-, and gluten-free!

    Five-star reviews: 7,400+

    Promising review: "I developed some coffee stains on my two front teeth earlier this summer. I could not get them off with regular brushing and they were making me very self-conscious. I found this product and, after less than a week, the stains are completely gone. Now, I’m going to work on the yellowing of my bottom teeth. Great product!" —Laurapgh

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    24. A pumice cleaning stone so you get hard-to-remove grime off your toilet bowl, tile floors, grills, sinks, and more. Plus, you'll do it all without getting your hands dirty thanks to that helpful handle.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Reviewers especially loved it for getting hard water stains out of their toilets.

    Five-star reviews: 2,670+

    Promising review: "THIS IS THE BEST THING EVERRRRRR!! Our toilets are old and have hard water stains in them. I clean them (admittedly less than) religiously but I could never get the hard water stains off. So, I thought I would give this rock-on-a-stick a try before I ended up smashing all our toilets in frustration and embarrassment. My rock-on-a-stick arrived and, in the words of John Oliver, 'PRAISE BE.' THIS THING IS A MIRACLE-WORKER. It requires very little scrubbing and my dang toilets look brand spanking new! Seriously! I am thinking about inviting the Queen over for a nice tinkle because that is how clean my toilets are." —Octomeggo

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (also available in a pack of two).

    25. A posture corrector that'll basically force you to move and sit with your back straight and your shoulders relaxed for 100% of the time that you wear it. It'll also help train your body to rest in that position naturally.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    You can wear this while you're working out, sitting at your desk, just chilling around the house, or whenever you go out. It can be worn over or underneath clothes. Several reviewers noted that the posture corrector for helping them as they deal with things like scoliosis and pain from pinched nerves. That said, you'll still want to run it by YOUR doctor to make sure a posture corrector is the best choice for your specific needs.

    Five-star reviews: 7,850+

    Promising review: "I have been wearing this for an hour at a time. I have honestly been able to tell a huge difference in my posture! It’s almost like it won’t let you slouch. It’s been super helpful during workouts too! You can’t even really tell that it’s on! Or, if you’re a college student it feels like a backpack is their except without the weight of it!" —Niqui Higbee

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99.

    26. A peeling and brightening serum to clear up hyperpigmentation and even out the skin tone. It contains hydroquinone (for brightening dark spots), salicylic acid (for penetrating the skin and drying up breakouts), vitamin C (also a brightening agent), and a host of other helpful ingredients.

    amazon.com

    🗣️🗣️🗣️: Anything you put on your skin that's meant to peel it is probably something you should consult with your dermatologist about first. You also need to be using sunscreen with an adequate SPF to keep your skin safe while it's peeling away layers of dead skin. Several reviewers also noted that it does sting but it delivers dramatic results they're pleased with. All the more reason to check it with a real doctor before dunking it on your face. Cheers to happy skin!

    Five-star reviews: 3,630+

    Promising review: "I WAS EXTREMELY HESITANT at first before ordering this product and considering using it on my skin. I don’t typically have sensitive skin but you honestly never know... BUT, this product has been doing miracles for my skin!! I’m so happy about the progress. I watched all the YouTube videos I could find, read thorough reviews, and can truly say I’m happy and more confident with the outcome so far. I was diagnosed with PCOS last year and severe hyperpigmentation has been one of the side effects. I was considering laser hair removal but this has been working. I started using this product 1/16/20... I have been using it twice a day but I alternate depending on my mood and if I have time in the morning... I do exfoliate every day and night. Going to keep using it to see if the scars lighten any further and my skin peels a little bit more bringing in the new skin!" —V. Forest

    Get it from Amazon for $23.

    27. An Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette that — per the reviews — you'll most likely want to wear every single day. Whether you're going soft glam or aiming for the no-makeup makeup tease, this thing will def help you bring your look to life.

    Five-star reviews: 4,000+

    The palette has 12 cool, neutral shades in matte, pearl, and metallic finishes. BTW, it's also paraben- and cruelty-free. Woot!

    Promising review: "I have had this palette for almost two years and it still looks as good as new and I use it almost every day. It’s gorgeous and provides a natural look and I would recommend it to anyone! The palette is a bit pricey but for the quality and use I have gotten out of it, it is very worth it!" —Sardavis
