    33 Helpful Things That May Make You Wonder "What Was Life Before This..."

    Pads that do magic✨, tops you can FR wear with no bra, and more. Must-haves, I declare. 🙌

    1. Herbal-infused pads (with mint, lavender, and aloe!) that'll prob surprise you with how soothing they are to wear. As in, yeah, they can help soothe pain and discomfort.

    my hand holding a pack pads from The Honey Pot Company
    BuzzFeed / Marquaysa Battle

    I actually factually DO NOT know what life was before I stumbled upon these pads???? Listen, when my menstrual cycle comes around, it's typically brutal and never in my life did I ever think any pad would help me with that in any way. I didn't even buy these Honey Pot Co. pads to do that; they were just available on a cashback offer on my fave couponing app so I grabbed 'em (I've never been loyal to any period product brand bc they all typically suck for me and so do periods lol). But these pads!!! They're infused with natural lavender, mint, and aloe meant to soothe you and guess what?! THEY REALLY EASED MY PAIN DOWN THERE! I low-key thought the "infused with [insert fancy ingredient here] was really just cute marketing, kinda like how every beauty brand puts "clean" on their labels now. But I genuinely felt the mint and lavender soothing my soreness/discomfort. It felt like a cooling sensation; it's kinda strong at first but then simmers down. The pads are 100% organic and I had no leakage issues with these during the day or with the overnight versions that I also bought. I also have a fragrance allergy and thankfully these pads didn't break me out. High school and college me? Mad jelly right now. Never using another pad brand again. Period 🤪. Also?! The Honey Pot Co. is a Black-owned and woman-owned brand.  💜

    Promising review (from a customer that's not me, obviously): "I LOOOOVVVVEEEEE these. At first, the sensation was a little intense but by the second or third wear it was sensational!!! They smell amazing and the mint soothes my cramps and tenderness. I highly recommend if you are into cooling sensations for pain." —4C Natural Hair

    Get the organic regular pack from The Honey Pot Co. at Target for $9.79 (20 pads) and the overnight pack for $9.79.

    the device

    Promising review: "This thing is the bomb. Does exactly what it advertises. Makes a thick whipped cream/foam out of washes, making it economical as well as fun. It can 'soften' harsh washes to make the concoction gentler on skin. It's also great for mixing washes if you have two or more you'd like to combine for different effects. And, of course, a little goes a long, long way with this puppy. For the price, it's a steal — if you're into this kind of thing. Definitely give it a try if you're not sure. It's a really cool device." —KnockKnockMe

    Get it from Amazon for $7.

    4. Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Base to ensure your shadow and liner stay in place all day long. Mmhmm. Creasing? What's that? Smudging? We don't know her!

    Promising review: "Let me start by saying that I have used nearly every eyeshadow primer available. From expensive to cheap...none of them hold a candle to this. I have very oily skin, but this primer lets my shadow last a full eight hours or more. I could get maybe five or six out of the other brands if I'm lucky! Thank you to Elizabeth Mott for finally making a primer that lasts! I seriously love this stuff." —Melissa Mae

    Promising review: "I wish I took a before and after. I cannot believe I have finally found a skincare system that works for me. I have sensitive and dry skin. The cleanser smells great and is soooo smooth. I purchased the rosewater toner as well to apply after washing. I then use the vitamin C serum and end with the coco shea moisturizer. I notice blemishes and dark marks fading and it has only been a few weeks. My skin looks brighter and I am in live with this line!" —Latanya Brockington

I think my son is going to love this. I know I do. Certainly plan on buying more as birthday gifts for other music lovers and maybe even one for myself. I certainly will check out this artisan's other work." —M.E.

    8. Boot-fix glue that'll renew those boots with soles that look like talking lips so you get extra wear. (Yeah, RIP to the boots you threw away before finding out about this.)

    Promising review: "I was very skeptical about using a shoe glue–type product after a shoe repair store owner told me that he wouldn't/couldn't reattach the sole on my Timberland work boots. He said that no adhesive would hold but maybe try superglue. I bought a bottle of Boot Fix Glue and followed the directions on the package to reattach the soles that had come apart at the toe. I've worn the boots several times now spending hours crawling around historical cemeteries doing restoration work. The repair is holding up fine. I am pleasantly surprised that this product actually lives up to its promises." —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.45.

    A pink mug of coffee that says "Rise & thrive" sitting on top of a pink heated small plate

    Promising review: "I have had my coffee warmer for about two weeks now and use it pretty much every day during the workweek. I am a big coffee drinker (several cups before noon) and this little thing keeps my coffee nice and warm — even hot. I have no complaints and am very happy with it. I spent a lot of time looking for a coffee mug warmer but kept reading so many negative reviews that I couldn’t decide. A friend had ordered this one and recommended it to me. I am very glad that I bought it and I have purchased a couple as stocking stuffers for the holidays. I recommend it. You won’t be disappointed." —RMBL

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99 (available in six styles).

    10. Zella leggings to make a super-strong case for not wearing pants anymore, even when it's cold out. 👋🏿👖 Like really, what even are pants?! And why were they even invented when we have these?


    Promising review: "Hands down, these are the best leggings! They're made of nice thick material so they are not see-through. I love their higher waist, which holds me in. I’m 5'8 and these are the perfect full-length. For the last four years now, I’ve gotten a new pair every year during the Nordstrom sale. They're still worth full price in my opinion. My usual size is an 8/10. I size up to a large and they are great." —Kaitnett

    Get them in straight sizes from Nordstrom for $59 (available in sizes XXS–XL; free shipping) OR plus sizes for $59 (available in sizes 1X–2X).

    "Chau holds many precious memories of Vietnam — from eating street foods with friends to biking to school under the crimson shades of phượng vĩ (royal poinciana). These memories of her formative years and her experiences as an adult living in the US led her to wanting to share a piece of Vietnamese culture through what she knows best: the language of food... "Mẹ" means mom in Vietnamese, and as our name sake suggests, this sauce was made using our mother’s recipe, her way." 

    Get one jar from Me's Way for $25.95+ (available in two sizes).

    12. A Ninja grill air fryer for anyone who'll always want those grilled lines and most importantly, that smoky, grilled taste from summer barbecues — even when fall weather gets too chilly to be outside standing over an actual grill.

    Salifya / Akers,

    My best friend bought one and cooked food for me on it and IT WAS SO DAGGONE GOOD! It tasted like it was fresh from a patio grill instead of a tiny indoor air fryer sitting on her kitchen countertop. I will stan this thing forever.

    Promising review: "O. M. G. This thing is awesome. We have a condo where we are not allowed to have grills on our balcony so I thought I’d give this a go. It is perfect. I just made a steak and it was to die for." —LP1968

    Klassy Network

    This brami is the wonderful work of Klassy Network, a small woman-owned business that obviously understands how annoying wearing bras actually is. Let's give this brand their flowers because WHEW.

    Promising review: "I totally love these Brami Halter tops. Being a cup size C; not having to wear a bra was almost impossible for me. With the Brami, I am so happy that I do not have to use a bra plus still keep my boobs in place. These are so versatile that I used them everywhere...all the time...even to do yoga. I just love them!" —Zaidy B.

    18. A candle warmer so you get the cozy vibe of candles without actually lighting a flame.,

    You can sit a smaller wax melt or an ENTIRE candle on top of this baby to get the fragrance going in your dorm.

    Promising review: "When I was shopping for a candle warmer, I decided first and foremost that I wanted to be able to use it for both candles and wax melts and this was the one that caught my eye. So far I love it! I’ve had it for two days and at this point in time I’ve only used it for candles but it works wonderfully. It’s a very good look that matches the rest of my room with the soft grey color. I would definitely gift one of these to my mom if she didn’t already have a ton of candle warmers." —Alive & Kickin

    Get it from Amazon for $17.80.

    Promising review: "I have finally found my golden thigh-high boots!!! I have searched far and wide for thigh-highs that actually stay up. These babies do not move the slightest and they aren’t skintight either (I have about average-size thighs). The heel is a great height for tall girls like me — a little over 3 inches for my size 10. The pointed look makes it super sexy and the quality is great. Best of all, I’ve worn these suckers all night long, for six or more hours, and my feet feel great! No pain whatsoever. I’m buying all the colors now." —Lexie

    Get them from Amazon for $45.69+ (available in women's sizes 5–10.5 and 26 styles).

    21. A gel-enhanced seat cushion to give your tush the TLC it deserves when you spend hours studying. It's specifically designed to support your tailbone to minimize the sharp pain that often comes with all that on your bum.

    gel and memory foam cushion placed on an office chair

    I got this for my mom who experiences sciatic joint pain that makes sitting down for long periods of time an incredibly painful chore. This cushion had SO many good reviews from people who described experiencing the same pain so I got it for my mom for Christmas. She uses it every single day and has told me on several occasions that this cushion is a BIG help for her. She also likes to bring this with her on long car rides so I'm def planning to order a second one that she can just keep in the car so she won't forget it.

    Promising review: "I love this cushion so much I just bought a second one. I’m a short lady and this boosts me about 2 inches in the driver's seat in my car. I used it driving 2,000 miles from Phoenix, Arizona, to Grand Rapids, Michigan, and back this year and it was wonderful. No back pain, fatigue, or sciatica while using it. I love that it has the cutout for the tailbone, too, since mine slightly protrudes. I just bought another one to use in the house too. I'm leaving one in the car. Holds up well and retains its shape nicely and I love that it has a removable washable cover too." —Srossrn

    Get it from Amazon for $35.95 (available in two colors).

    Promising review: "I am absolutely in love with these curtains. The material is thick and heavy. Definitely true blackouts. The color is just as described if not better. It has definitely exceeded my expectations. I will be ordering other colors for sure. Don’t hesitate. Order them now!" —Key Monique

    Get it from Amazon for $18.48 (available in multiple sizes and 26 colors).

    23. A piercing pillow with a donut shape so you can still get that sweet side sleep even with a freshly pierced ear. No more tossing, turning, and straining your neck all night to prevent ear irritation.

The free app Gosund is compatible with mobile devices IOS 8.0 above, Android 4.4 above.

    Promising review: "These little mini sockets are awesome!!! I tried two other brands of smartsockets but these are by far the best I’ve tried. All I did is download the app, open it, plug the socket in, waited a few seconds for the little blue light to flash...then the app asks me to accept and then I can change the name of the socket, then click, bam, boom! Done! They can be up and running in literally seconds. They are amazing. So far they work flawlessly." —Harper Lee III

    Promising review: "I am so impressed with this product! I need noise all night but the TV wakes my husband up if I leave it on. I put these on when I go to sleep and listen to a show or podcast. I am sleeping better than I have in ages. I don’t hear my teens as they clomp up and down the stairs or even my husband when he gets up through the night. I’m a small woman and I was worried they wouldn’t stay on but I can move through the night and they stay in place. The headphones part isn’t uncomfortable when I sleep on my side. I would highly recommend this!" —Jessica Derby

    Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed

    The Roll Keeper is owned by master crafter Traci, who is based in Kenso, Washington — and there are tons of different roll designs for different things like bottles, towels, thread, and way more!

    Also, my BuzzFeed colleague Mallory Mower adoressss hers. Peep her thoughts on it here:

    "Before getting this I was driving myself up the wall with my bad folding habits. I basically shoved all my shirts into the storage drawers under my bed, because I have a teeny tiny closet (the picture above gives you a solid idea of how small it is). This has given me a massive amount of clothing storage I didn't have before. The quality is stellar, and Traci is 10/10 the most thoughtful person I've purchased an Etsy product from!"

    Get it from The Roll Keeper on Amazon for $20.99.

    28. A bed rest pillow with arms and an adjustable head cushion so your neck and back can relax properly as you WFB (work from bed). Pillow stacking to get the *right* position is ovuhhhh.

    on the left, a person leans on the pillow with its headrest propped up. on the right, a mom leans on a pillow with headrest turned down. A quote from the mom says, "I can play all night and day on the floor with my daughter without my back aching."

    Several reviewers noted that this was the winning pillow for them after trying a bunch of different ones to soothe their back and neck discomfort.

    Promising review: "I had been looking for a reading/backrest pillow for a while and nothing was right about any of the others that I found. I loved the features on this one so I ordered it and I could not be happier! The price was great and the quality is outstanding. The removable cover is heavy-duty but so soft and not stiff at all. I love that it comes with a neck roll that can be secured in place by means of loops and buttons that don't interfere with comfort in any way. There's a wide pocket in the back that will hold books and magazines, and another on one of the arms. The very best thing is the memory foam filling! The pillow arrived very firm and heavy which would be great for many people. I wanted it to be less firm. With this pillow, it's easy to adjust to whatever firmness or softness that you are comfortable with since the inner pillow has a zipper at the bottom so you can remove or add the stuffing... The company also has more foam available if you want! I'm thrilled with this and would recommend it to anyone! Five stars are not enough!" —L.S. Floyd

    Get the pillow and cover from Amazon for $79.95 or just the pillow for $59.95.

    Promising review: "Wow! Just what I needed to axe the paper towel habit. Drying bacon was the only thing I used them for. I was searching for a good alternative! This is it. Glad I bought two. I will buy more for stocking stuffers. I wish I could give extra stars for the compostable packaging! Finally, a thoroughly satisfying purchase." —Wendy Hamilton

    Get it from Glittrsweatandbeards on Etsy for $9.

    30. Creamed honey that'll spread like butter on your biscuits and scoop easily into drinks without dripping sticky stuff everywhere. And it tastes AH-mazing. 🍯🐝🤤

    BuzzFeed / Marquaysa

    It's from Zach & Zoë, a family-owned and Black-owned brand that makes its own honey on their farm in New Jersey! The brand sent me their creamed honey to try for myself after I featured the honey in a different post. Now, my thoughts: CREAMED HONEY IS QUITE THE REVELATION! I had no idea it existed until I saw this one (maybe I'm late? Ok.) Anyway, lotsa reviews said that it's great for putting in tea and coffee. The verdict after trying it? It tastes GREAT. Upgrading my favorite hot beverages with this honey was just the start. I super dig the convenience of the creamed texture and have high-key been looking for excuses to use creamed honey on everything. My heart and taste buds now hold a special appreciation for how the creamed honey spreads like butter on biscuits for breakfast. I don't have to worry about honey dripping all everywhere when I try to spoon it out 🙄. Last thing: The creamed honey tasted so great that it prompted me to actually purchase another jar plus the Wildflower Honey with Raspberry. It tastes really good too (especially in tea) but that creamed honey just has sooo many other uses that I'm prob going to have it on repeat for a long while. I'm trying the Matcha honey next though.

    Get it from Zach & Zoë on Amazon for $20.99 or directly from the Zach & Zoë site for $20.

    31. An Always Pan will be your new go-to in the kitchen after you enjoy all its features and realize that "non-stick" feature they brag about is THE TRUTH HONEY!

    BuzzFeed editor Bek O'Connell tried the Our Place pan. Peep her review ahead:

If you hate scrubbing, consider getting this! Also, Our Place was founded by Shiza Shahid, along with Amir Tehrani and Zach Rosner. She's a Pakistani social entrepreneur who also co-founded the nonprofit Malala Fund, which promotes education for young girls."

    33. KitchenAid sheers — because once you discover that cutting up chicken strips, stir fry beef, and sausages is a boom-boom-done situation when you use 'em, you'll never wanna go back. These. Your drawer. Now. YW. 😘

    It'll come with a plastic guard for safe storage, too!

    Promising review: "Exceeded my expectations. It cuts meats and veggies well, it's easy to clean as you can see in the second and third pic (I just rinsed it off for like two sec and it looked clean just with water). It was easy to hold and was useful to have on the side to open packages 5/5." —Dank O.

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