    Double trouble will actually keep you outta trouble this time, peeps.

    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 blackhead remover kit so you can SAFELY remove blackheads from the skin without spreading bacteria or causing unnecessary scarring. The set comes with five needles for different pimple sizes plus a case to store them in.

    Promising review: "I have had blackheads on my nose since I can remember and they just keep getting bigger. I have tried the peeling masks, monthly facials, etc... but that wasn't enough. I ordered this kit (along with a microdermabrasion one) to try and fight back... It gets EVERYTHING out and I don't feel like I am damaging my skin. It's very easy to use. I use this kit two to three times a week and have noticed a BIG difference in my pore size. I like to use this before I put on any skincare or makeup products. Just quickly get a few noticeable areas and then apply toner, lotion, and primer before makeup. After three months of use, I found this kit works MUCH better than the microdermabrasion tool I also ordered. These are just easier and quicker! A few times a week, I can quickly clean out my pores after washing my face. My pore size has noticeably shrunk." —Sherri Lee

    2. A waterproof speaker for those nightly sold-out concerts you put on under the water spout.,

    It comes with a metal hook to hang it on the shower curtain ~and~ a suction cup to stick it to the wall.

    Promising review: "I bought this speaker to use in the shower so I can listen to some bops! The quality of the speaker and battery life are amazing. I usually don’t have to charge it for a while! I definitely would recommend this speaker to a friend or someone you know with good music taste!" —Jasmine

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in three colors).

    3. A split cereal bowl for anyone who still really, really loves cereal but really, really hates when it gets soggy. This cool bowl will certainly help you ~compartmentalize~ those feelings in a whole new way — and it'll probably be a hit with the whole family so you'll def want more than one of these in your cabinets.


    This will also work great for yogurt and granola!

    Promising review: "My life can be divided into two parts: before and after the Obol. Before the Obol, my life was a cornucopia of misery and suffering. The inevitable sogginess of my breakfast cereal caused me to live in a miasma of despair. The eldritch ability of the milk to foul Cap'N Crunch or Raisin Bran seemed an impossible foe. With every snap crackle and pop, like drums in the deep, I knew the saturation was coming for my precious malted grains. How can one enjoy the morning repast free from the heinous congealing of granule and dairy? Tiny bowls were insufficient to slake my cereal feinding... Obol, you have lifted the veil from my eyes. You've opened a new world for me. Thank you Obol creator. You know not the positive effect on my life." —Chris W.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in two sizes). Don't forget to snag your favorite cereal!

    4. A handheld milk frother to give the gift of perfect froth for all your favorite coffee drinks. Warning: You may be breaking up your love affair with Starbucks buuut, at least you'll save money.,

    Promising review: "This has revolutionized my coffee routine and allows me to make lattes, like they do at Starbucks, at home. I have used it exclusively with plant-based milk (coconut, almond, etc.) and it perfectly froths non-dairy milk. I can't tell you how much money I have saved not having to go to the coffee shop every time I want to have a delicious latte. It makes a beautiful, delicate foam that holds up for the whole cup of coffee. I love that there's still foam even in the last sip. Also, you can use this for the fancy cold foam to have with iced coffee drinks. I love this device so much! I have recommended it to literally everyone I know and plan on purchasing another frother in the near future just so I can keep one at the office to make sure I never have to make coffee without it. I couldn't go back to just coffee and cream after having tried the perfect lattes made by this." —Lindsey Catherine

    Get it from Amazon for $12.97 (available in three colors).

    5. A magnetic tool wristband that'll be a regular go-to for anyone who's handy.


    Promising review: "My husband and I have been fighting over our other magnetic wristband ever since we got it a few months back. So, I figured it was about time to get another one! Now, we can both be working on projects at the same time. This wristband has strong magnets that can hold everything we’ve needed it to so far. It also is made of a thick, durable canvas-like material, which should last a very long time and stand up to just about anything." —Faithkitty

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99.

    6. A Star Wars Lightsaber chopsticks set to defend bellies from hunger with the bravery of the Jedi. May the ~forks~ totally NOT be y'all as long as you have these cool, glowy things to eat with. WARNING: The kids are going to use these like real lightsabers. Snagging two packs of these is only smart.


    The lights can be turned on or off with a button at the top. The chopsticks also come with new batteries and a stopper included. If the batteries go out, you can replace them with 3 x LR41 camera batteries.

    Promising review: "I gave these as Christmas presents and bought this set for myself. Seriously cool and amazing! Everyone was excited when they received them. They are extremely lightweight and easy to use. My friends are planning a Star Wars night at a local all-you-can-eat sushi place. Should be awesome!" —Johnny

    Get it from Amazon for $16.97.

    7. A camera lens coffee mug that'll definitely separate yours from the rest of the ones your co-workers take to the office. Can't you just ~picture~ yourself sipping their favorite teas and coffees from this?!


    Promising review: "I keep this mug at my job for a quick cup. It's a great copy of the exact lens I bought with my Canon 5D. It comes with two lids and a nice little spoon. The mug keeps coffee, tea, hot chocolate, etc... hot for a long time. It's sitting next to me right now. Very good quality. If you're a photo bug like me, then you'll be impressed with the likeness. Don't hesitate to buy this! Hope this helps." —Adam R.

    Get it from Amazon for $17.95.

    8. An essential oil stick that'll help relieve migraines for skeptics who refuse to take over-the-counter medicines because there's still no sense in sitting around in pain all day, right?

    BuzzFeed, Yi Yang / BuzzFeed

    If you want more deets on this then read our review of the Migrastil headache relief stick!

    Promising review: "I have had tension and migraine headaches for around 20 years. I have tried everything. OTC medication, prescription medication, pain injections, chiropractors, etc... This topical oil has given me relief for nearly six weeks now. I have only had two to three headaches in that time and they were mild. I ordered more already so I have some in my car and at home. I also bought some for two of my friends who suffer from chronic migraines. I would recommend this product to anyone with migraines. It is phenomenal." —Mary D.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    9. Butterfly earrings that are so pretty, they'll surely break your heart if one of them flies away and you're never able to find it again. And admit it. You're allllways losing an earring. Prepare for it this time by grabbing two packs and honestly? It's prob the safest thing for you to start buying two sets every time you buy earrings.

    Forever 21

    I lost a butterfly earring in the airport and usually, I mourn the loss but HACK: I ordered TWO packs of the same pair on Forever 21. I've since lost ANOTHER one of the butterfly earrings (in a purse or somewhere) but HA, I already have its understudy in my jewelry box. I'll prob never be late hunting down an earring ever again in life.

    Get them from Forever 21 for $5.99.

    10. An internet address and password log book for anyone who can't remember a password to save their life — and it's not a bad idea to have a backup password book in case you lose (or forget where you hid) your OG password book.,

    Promising review: "When we have so many internet addresses and passwords to remember, it gets really hard — especially when you get older and have trouble remembering what silly password you gave something. And, we are supposed to change or update passwords from time to time, so this is a great tool to help us do that. It certainly makes more sense than scribbling on a random piece of paper on your desk and then misplacing it. The trick, however, is to not misplace the book!" —Carole P

    Get it from Amazon for $6.33.

    11. A champagne stopper so your bubbly will never lose its mojo once you pop the bottle.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    This will seal up your champagne and keep it fresh in your fridge for days. It also has a pressure pump to make sure the stopper is completely sealed and leak-free.

    Promising review: "I’m guessing most people buy this great product for stopping sparkling wines, but it works just as well for any large-bottle sparkling drink, including apple ciders. And the ability to pump it once sealed means you don’t waste a single bubble getting the bottle back to its full pressure. Great product. Superb customer service." —DavidAtSwans

    Get it from Amazon for $8.97. Check out our review of the MiTBA Champagne Stopper for more deets on this cool gadget (#1)!

    12. An Ace of Spades–shaped bottle opener to keep in your wallet so you always have it on hand. You also have the option to get the bottle opener customized for just a few dollars more!


    Promising review: "I used these as gifts in Christmas cards and they were a big hit! Everyone loved them. They're solid and substantial and work well to open bottles. This is cool, clever, and affordable. LOVE!" —David R. Feeney

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99+.

    13. Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara that'll make your lashes look like money in just a couple of swipes. You'll want one of these in your makeup bag plus a backup in your travel bag for sure.

    Promising review: "After using Lights, Camera, Lashes by Tarte Cosmetics for the past year, I got tired of breaking the bank over mascara. My sister suggested Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect and I IMMEDIATELY fell in love. It provides dramatic length and great volume. I can honestly say I can’t stop looking at my eyelashes in the mirror every single day because of how awesome they look. Also, it is very long-wearing. I go from an eight-hour workday right to the gym and sweat like crazy and this stuff doesn’t budge! I love it!!" —Carrie E. Miller

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99

    14. A diamond cleaner to get your beloved jewels looking as clear as water. Keep one in the house and one in the car for when you're on the go.

    Promising review: "I usually don't write reviews but I feel like I had to with this product. I am a woman who dotes on my engagement ring and wedding band. They are some of my most prized possessions and I treat them as such. I don't shower with my wedding bands and I ALWAYS take them off when washing my hands. I keep them clean with weekly soakings and a soft toothbrush and Windex. But I hate it when I'm out and about and my ring looks like crap. This is SO CONVENIENT and it makes my ring look like brand spanking new when I'm on the go! love love love it" —Amanda Gruber

    Get it from Amazon for $5.49.

    15. A kitchen knife sharpener to get your dull knife game back on ~point~.


    Promising review: "Rather than replace my kitchen knife set, I thought I'd spent the $6 on this sharpener to see if I could save them. I was skeptical about how well it would work, but the reviews were pretty great. This little thing is fantastic! I was able to sharpen my knives really quickly and easily. I have only done my straight-edge knives and not my serrated ones because I didn't realize it could do both until I was finished. I'll do my serrated knives another time and see how well that goes, but I have high hopes due to how well it sharpened my chef's and santoku knives. My knives are roughly 10 years old and have never been sharpened, so they were very, very dull. I sharpened them with the coarse blades and it worked beautifully. I am so happy with this sharpener and I was able to save a lot of money since I don't have to replace my knife set." —Breanne

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    16. An eyeliner stamp — BEHOLD, the cheat code to mastering the wing. Once you have it, you won't want to go back to "manual" liner EVA again.

    Promising review: "I just want to make my morning routine as easy as possible. I love winged liner but I don’t have a steady hand for it without mistakes. This stamp makes the perfect and consistent wing every time. Love it!" —Julie B.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.97+ (available in three sizes + one three-pack).

    17. A bright Air pods case set to keep your precious earbuds scratch-free and safely tucked away so you don't lose them while you're out moving and shaking. The set includes the pretty case, a pair of air pods, and a free pom-pom keychain accessory.


    Promising review: "This case is perfect for both protection and fashion. The color options available are perfect for those who want a stylish case at the same time. The pom-pom included is another cute addition although if you have a cat then you'll want to keep your air pods safe because mine would not leave the pom-poms alone. Additionally, the case comes with rubber tips which really make them more comfortable in my ear and it really increases the audio quality. There's also a band to put around your neck so if you're active and they fall out, you don't have to worry much. Side Note: This color is amazing." —Keeanu

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in 13 colors).

    18. Biodegradable hair ties for anyone whose hair ties always seem to magically disappear. This isn't going to prevent anyone from still losing them, but you'll be able to re-up faster. ALSO, at least these are biodegradable so they'll break down and return to the earth's soil wherever they end up instead of taking up space in some janky landfill.

    BTW, these hair ties are also made in compostable packaging that you can recycle with no worries. Repeat after me: Saving the earth is cool. Saving the earth is fun! 🙌🏿🌎

    Promising review: "Being in grappling sports, I run through a ton of hair ties. It had me thinking about the environmental effects of numerous non-degradable hair ties and their packaging. That's how I came across this product. These hair ties are high-quality and worth the money. They hold my hair in place throughout my training which I can't say the same for many other brands." —Micka4evr

    Get them from Amazon for $14.93 (available in a 27-count).

    19. A scalp massager that'll transform your shower into an actual factual spa. A scalp massage will get that blood circulating which encourages hair growth and breaks down buildup, which both also contributes to hair growth.

    A hand holding a scalp massager with spikes all over one side.

    Several reviewers noted that it helped them to soothe their dry, itchy scalp due to different conditions like eczema and psoriasis.

    Promising review: "I cannot explain how good this feels when you're using it! It relaxes you and for sure is better than just using your fingertips to shampoo your hair. It actually goes down to the roots and makes sure that it gets into all the spots it can to clean your hair. I can tell you right now that my hair has never felt smoother than after I started using this product." —Romie Patel

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98+ (available in three colors).

    20. Gorgeous, sleek car trash cans that are as pretty as your travel mugs. They'll fit inside most cup holders and help minimize all the car-bage that accumulates in any whip., Amazon

    Promising review: "It's perfect for small trash like straw wrappers. I have one for me and one to share! I love the diamond design! Super cute!" —Dshirley

    Get it from Amazon for $13.69+ (available in three colors).

    21. Clip-on reading lights for eyeglasses so no matter where you go or how dark it gets, you'll still get to the good part in your book with zero problems.


    Promising review: "My mother-in-law is so excited to get her reading lights. She is 90 years old and reads constantly. She says these are perfect for clipping on to her glasses and she can point them exactly where she needs them. They arrived as promised and the only critique she had was that they did not come with any instructions for replacing the battery. I told her that if they run out, then they are cheap enough to just replace them. However, the seller may want to put something in the package to let people know what to do." —GranJam

    Get them from Amazon for $9.49.

    22. A French fry holder for the car because everyone knows fries NEVER make it all the way home. No more swerving while fumbling with a fast-food bag.


    Promising review: "Bought this for my wife as she is a french fry lover to the MAX. I gave it to her thinking it was a 'nice' or 'OK' novelty item for the truck. You would have thought it was the Hope Diamond. We immediately had to go to Sonic and try it out and it worked well. I am her hero. Always have been but it is refreshing to watch such happiness." —AZPerk3

    Get it from Amazon for $20.26.

    23. The Spatty Daddy mini-spatula will scoop up the last little bit of lotion, shower gel, or liquid makeup easier when it runs super low and you haven't had time to re-up. This way, you can still breeze through your bedtime or getting ready routine.


    Promising review: "I hate leaving that last little bit of moisturizer, cleanser, or shampoo at the bottom of the container. These are ingenious. The large size works for my jumbo bottle of shampoo and Philosophy cleanser. The small size gets every drop of moisturizer out of the Clinique bottles. Where have these been? Why didn't someone think to do this earlier?" —Mermaid222

    Get it from Amazon for $11.70.

    24. A kitty spoon that'll hang on the side of your tea and coffee cups so you can stir, sip, and hang it when you don't need it. This thing is su-purr cute!, Amazon

    Promising review: "Love this little spoon! It fits perfectly on the edge of my coffee mug. Now, I no longer have to go searching for a spoon to stir my morning coffee! Since it sits on the edge of the cup, my fingers don't get sticky from a wet handle. Plus, it's absolutely adorable and makes me think of my own kitty while I'm away at work. This spoon has become an essential part of my morning routine." —Brianna S.

    Get it from Amazon for $1.49.

    25. Makeup headbands to hold your hair back while you beat your face or do your skincare routine so you don't waste time fighting with wisps of hair or trying to get product out of your locks.

    Promising review: "I received my elastic hairband and I absolutely love it. I can't have a bad day if I put this on and look at myself in the mirror. Call that what you want but I've had a hard time finding a hairband that works for me. I usually have to use a headband that puts pressure on that bony part behind the ear. It hurts! ... I appreciate that this has elastic to keep it on in the front of the head as well as in the BACK of the head. This sucker doesn't move which I appreciate when I'm trying to do my skincare/makeup. A small part of me wishes I could wear this in public but alas, no. Not socially acceptable unless I'm in costume or doing some sort of consultant work. Also, it's so darn cute... If you're even thinking about it, then DO IT!" —Jenty92210

    Get them from Amazon for $6.99 (available in three colors).

    26. A wearable nail polish bottle holder to make your DIY manicure sessions way less messy and easier to complete. It's made of silicone rubber which will fit various finger sizes and make it easier to clean. It's also designed to hold different nail bottle shapes and sizes.,

    Promising review: "Love this product. It definitely helps with DIY nail projects. When I had no idea this polish holder existed, I tried to find creative ways to hold my polish so that it was in a convenient spot. However, I never found that really worked for me or was comfortable. This holder holds all of my nail polishes easily and is very comfortable to wear. I love that the finger holes on the bottom are not enclosed so you can just pull the holder off without ruining the paint job. Just one tip: Move the holder to your pointer when doing your thumb. The first time I used it, I was clumsy and spilled nail polish on my couch because I held my hand sideways to paint my thumb. Dumb mistake. Haven't made it since and it's easily avoidable." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 21 colors).

    27. A can colander so you'll never lose a morsel of food from your soup or canned vegetables to your sink when you drain the juice.


    Promising review: "It sounds silly but this little guy is truly a game-changer. I have been using the top of the can to strain the water out of my tuna for years. I never thought of ever considering an alternative until I came across this on Amazon. It really is a time-saver and very convenient. It fits perfectly nice and snug in five-ounce tuna cans. The strainer is easy to clean and seems pretty durable as well. Just rinse off with water and pat dry." —studiotime

    Get it from Amazon for $3.59.

    28. A hair finishing stick made with plant oils to clean up all random stray strands so you can achieve those sleek buns, ponytails, and topknots.

    Promising review: "I rarely ever leave reviews, but THIS is amazing!! I have naturally frizzy hair that is also wavy and curly. I have a lot of breakage around the crown and this stuff sleeks it back but it doesn’t make it look greasy or crunchy! I suggest taking the mascara wand and wiping off the excess on the tube before applying so you don’t apply too much. When I apply too much all you have to do is let it dry and then scratch your fingernails from front to back to break it up and it still creates a sleek look without any crunchiness. I love this stuff so much I need to get another for my car on those days that my mom hair is looking terrible." —Adriana

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98.

    29. A handy-dandy device that'll light up when you need a reminder to stop neglecting your self-care duties and drink more water, you walking desert!


    Promising review: "I love this thing! It's my second one. I'm getting a lot of feedback on it at work. It works great and does what it's supposed to do. I'm now getting my two liters of water throughout the workday!" —April

    Get it from Amazon for $25 (available in nine colors).

    30. A mermaid bookmark so you can always dive right back into a story in the exact place that you left off.


    Promising review: "My friend had a dangly bookmark and I really liked the idea of it so I searched them on Amazon and I found this mermaid one. I am OBSESSED with mermaids so of course, I ordered one in record time! It's so beautiful and I use it all of the time. It's one of my top favorite purchases from Amazon to date." —Jaelyn

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    31. A soft and lightweight sleep mask that'll cover the majority of your face and totally black out any light so you can finally get all the ZZZ's you deserve and be ready to tackle adulting with a well-rested enthusiasm. It even has a nose flap so you no light can sneak in through there!


    Promising review: "Normally I don't write reviews but I felt I had to say that this is the most comfortable eye mask I have ever worn. It's extremely soft to the touch. It feels so good on the face and completely blocks out any light. I don't even notice the two adjustable head straps because they are also so comfortable. I normally work 12-hour night shifts so I'm sleeping through the day. I always had issues with constantly waking up even with blackout curtains because the sunlight was still getting around them, but since I've started wearing the mask, I have had no disrupted sleep and I am dead to the world during the day with this on." —Chibimuffin

    Get it on Amazon for $9.99 (available in three styles and two colors).

    32. A tub drainer to catch all the hair that would normally clog your drain. It'll also be easy (and yea, kinda disgusting) to pluck out and clean when needed.

    And in case you were wondering, one reviewer did show and share that YES, it'll catch curls too!

    Promising review: "Before using the Tubshroom, I used a flat hair catcher on my tub/shower drain and cleaning it was gross. This one really does the job nicely. When you lift it from the drain, the hair (absent gunk since only hair remains) is caught by the lip. Hence, you can easily remove hair with a tissue. Also, since there are plenty of little drainage holes, it doesn't get moldy compared to a flat hair catcher that covers the top of the drain. The material is soft and easily pliable, thus, fits drain and catches all hair. It's well worth the cost compared to hiring a professional drain cleaner." —Dr. SG

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95+ (available in six colors).

    33. OR, a Flexisnake to dig out all the hair that's been having camp meetings in your drain. It'll be a nasty process but you'll be so happy when water's back to running down your sink like a dream.

    Promising review: "I was in denial about what was clogging my shower drain. Some idiot grouted the grate on top of the drain leaving me at a loss with figuring out how to unclog it. I've tried the pouring stuff down the drain, the hot water, and the leaving it overnight. I still got a shower-foot-bath until I found this. I worked up so much hair out of my drain. It's almost embarrassing to admit. But this is awesome. I would recommend it to friends." —Elisa

    Get it from Amazon for $5.28+ (available in two colors).

    34. A zipper-puller so you'll never have to worry about not having a parent, friend, or significant other around to zip up your outfits.


    Promising review: "I bought a dress with a back zip ('invisible zipper' too, i.e. tiny!) recently from Ann Taylor. Getting into it and zipping it all the way up was nearly impossible unless I wanted to start cussing and sweat buckets throughout the whole ordeal. I came across this neat little gadget and chose Zipuller because it was more affordable and the reviews were solid. I received it this morning and tried it on the aforementioned dress. Let me tell you, it worked like a charm, even on that tiny zipper of mine. Just follow the instructions and you can NOT go wrong, IMHO. It's worth the money. It's a clothing accessory investment that I feel ALL gals and guys ought to have." —Chicago888

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

    35. Colorful winged butterfly over-the-knee socks that are wayyy too cool to just own one. Also, you know how easy it is to lose socks in the dryer. Go ahead and prepare for the inevitable!


    Get them from Claire's for $8.49 (originally $9.99).

    36. A Baby Yoga T-shirt that's way too cute to just get one. If one of them shrinks, gets a hole, or gets taken by the Dark Force (aka the friend or sibling who's always taking your cutest pieces) — then you'll have another one hiding in the bottom of your drawer!

    Look Human

    Promising review: "I love this shirt! It's very soft and comfortable. Fast shipping too!" —Debra R.

    Get it from Look Human for $22.99+ (available in multiple colors, and available in unisex, women's, and kid's sizes).

    37. A glow-in-the-dark glob to use as a stress ball or to have a squishy, fun good time with just because. It resembles an egg but you can squeeze it to your heart's content and it'll always keep its shape.
