Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A box of pore-tightening, skin-lifting face masks that'll truly terrify you, first because you'll look like a zombie once you've applied it, and second because it's so darn effective at reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

    Promising review: "I have never written a review before but I am compelled to do so now. Let’s start with what my 41-year-old face looked like. I had bumps, tiny bumps all over my skin, especially my forehead. My skin NEVER felt smooth even with the prescriptions I was give to help with these tiny bumps. Rosacea = bad bad bad. So bad that it was actually causing my cheeks to have what appeared to be thickening skin. Wrinkles, some that were quite deep. My pores were friggin huge and getting bigger day by day it seemed like. I know that it says to use this product every three days. I chose to go with every single day for the first box of eight. The results were so amazing I decided on everyday for the second box. Even more amazing results. EVERY SINGLE ISSUE LISTED ABOVE NO LONGER EXISTS!!!! I moisturize deeply after rinsing and my face looks absolutely amazing. My face did not even look like this at 30. I am hooked and I will be buying no less than three packs every single payday so I can stock up on this stuff in case they ever decide to quit selling it. If I had 10 stars available to rate I would use them and more!" —Amazon Customer

    2. A lasagna trio pan to help you prepare meals for everyone, regardless of their dietary restrictions. Mamma mia! *insert chef finger kiss*

    Promising review: "I've been making lasagna for my family for YEARS and always used a lasagna pan without sections. What a PAIN! It was harder to prepare, and when it came to cutting and was something I dreaded. Everyone wanted an 'end' that was crispy, Everyone wanted either a small piece or a large cutting it was impossible. With these trays, prep was a breeze, as was cutting any size because it didn't slip and slide. It was as easy as pie...and everyone got a 'crispy edge.' Cleaning was one, two three...NON STICK! If there were 10 stars for this item, I would give it 10." —Linda Tesoroni

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    3. A dog shampoo to reduce shedding that'll be a godsend if you can't accept a future where almost every inch of your floors and furniture are covered in dog hair. Deshedding shampoos work by hydrating a dog's coat with moisturizers and essential omega fatty acids that make the hair less brittle, dry, and likely to fall out = less shedding.

    Reviewers say that their dogs shed A LOT after the first wash with this deshedding shampoo, but over time they notice less shedding.

    Promising review: "Can I give it 10 stars? I brushed my dog two days before using the shampoo. I use the Furminator brush, and I got all of the hair off that I could. I used the shampoo, waited until the next day, and brushed again. No joke I got at least three times the amount of hair as before. Amazing. Will definitely buy again. It smells awesome too and is moisturizing when using." —carey h.

    Get it from Amazon for $2.99.

    4. An Etude House drying powder to help control your skin's oil production and keep your face from looking greasy. You can also apply it to your hair (make sure you dust off the residue) so your roots look freshly washed.

    Some reviewers apply it before their makeup while others find it works best on top of their foundation. You may need to experiment to find the right order for you.

    Promising review: "I'm 36 and have struggled with oily, acne-prone skin my whole life. Why did no one tell me about this sooner??? I use a kabuki brush (instead of the small velvet pad they provide) and spread a thin layer of powder all over my face after all other skincare products and before foundation. It literally keeps me shine free for my 18-hour work shifts! On especially hot and humid days, I'll reapply this *lightly* over my makeup halfway through the day. It also seems to have cleared up the smaller blemishes around my nose and chin! Hooray! I wish I could give it more than five stars." —Rebekah Zenn

    Get it from Amazon for $5.

    5. A set of eco-friendly cleaning cloths so you can wipe away messes with just water. That's right, these bad boys are tough on stains are are designed to wipe away dirt, dust, stains, mysterious liquids, and grime without you ever having to use the harsh chemicals.

    Promising review: "What they say is sooooooo true. I hate hate hate streaky windows. These towels leave NO streaks. Windows looked like there was no glass in them. Cleaned my black stove. Again no streaks. My stainless steel sparkles. I took one in shower with me and wiped down the walls and tub. Oh, and I have a beige suede-like couch. Hubby leaves blackness on arms. Rubbed a damp towel on it and GONE. Even the furniture shampoo hadn't worked. These deserve 100 stars." —Bernie Wilbanks

    Get a pack of four towels from Amazon for $24.90 (available in six colors)

    6. A peeling solution if you have textured skin and fine lines. This resurfaces your skin with a mixture of glycolic, lactic, and salicylic acid. (The first two are alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) that exfoliate the skin's outer layer while the last one, a beta hydroxy acid (BHA), reduces pore congestion).,

    Promising review: "If I could give this thing 10 stars, I would. I have used it twice over the space of about a week and a half. I was scared it might sting, but it did not for me at all. I noticed how clean my face felt after rinsing it. I don't put any makeup or products on my face, so for the next four days, I was able to evaluate the results. I noticed my skin being a lot softer, and old breakout marks fading as well. The second application went perfectly as well. Again, softness and better skin appearance. I have never had a 'glow' before — now I do! I can't sat enough about the wonders of this product. It should be three times the price for the benefits you get from it. Home run!!!" —Amazon Customer

    7. A jewelry-cleaning pen that'll make your jewels sparkle.

    Promising review: "If I could give this 10 stars I would! I'm a fanatic when it comes to keeping my jewelry clean, especially my wedding set. I tried this product on my diamonds, Swarovski crystals, and Brighton jewelry, and the results are nothing less than amazing! This restored one of my Swarovski rings that I had not worn in years due to the cloudy color to a sparkling brilliance just like the first day I bought it! I cannot recommend this product enough! I just ordered additional wands so I don't run out! Home run Amazon!" —Kristina B.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    8. A pack of stain-removing pads because owning a pet = a lot of messes. Pee? Check! Poop? Check! Vomit? Check! (You can even use them to clean up your wine spills.)

    Promising review: "WOW! Honestly, I was a little skeptical of the promise of these pads, but I bought them just to try out. THEY WORKED AMAZINGLY WELL! Seriously. I have some stains that are 1.5–2 years old. I've tried everything to get them out. I put these pads on the stains (two to cover the spot), let sit for about an hour, pulled them up, and the stain was gone. I truly couldn't believe it. The pad was yellow. Somehow the old urine was soaked up into the pad. My carpet looks like new. I couldn't recommend these any higher for what I wanted and what I got. Wish I could give this more than five stars." —Matt

    9. A cookbook filled with recipes you can make *at home* with ingredients that are *already in your pantry* if your bank account is asking, nay shouting, at you to stop ordering takeout.

    Promising review: "This book...this gorgeous, glorious, joyful chance at preparing dinner as a family sweetly commands me to tell everyone I can that this is FUN kitchen love. Ms. Alison Roman adds an aria to the hum instead of ho and I add a little dance to these old arthritic fingers and toes and POOF!!! There is magic in Rancho Tejana's kitchen again. I really didn't have to add to the pantry to cook most of the dishes I wanted; it was all pretty much there already — just missing the flair, excitement, and pure leap of faith that flavors who had met in my house but not in my cooking could fall in love and marry in dishes would find love happily ever after. Talk about cross-cultural relationships! Yes, they can happen and they should! Wake up America, there's a new world out there, and we can be a part of it, share it and maybe even not politicize it or polarize it, just enjoy and participate in it. Cook with Alison, (and me!); we'll both love you for it. Six stars — one for you taking a leap of faith in two strangers, oh my, well one. Alison isn't strange." —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    10. A tub of brightening, firming, and rejuvenating eye cream so you at least look like you got some sleep (even if you were up until 2 a.m. scrolling through Instagram).,

    Promising review: "I would give this product 100 stars. I see a dramatic difference in my skin. This is by far the best skincare product I have ever used. I actually use it for my whole face. It makes my skin feel clean and give it a matte appearance. It even helps my face stay clear. I love the smell and I love the way it feels when applied. This is a truly amazing product." —William B Michel

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    11. A pet hair remover if you're tired of getting fur all over their clothes. Roll it over your couch, bed, favorite blanket, you name it, and watch it lift the fur away. See, we can own nice things!!

    Promising review: "If I could give this product six stars, I would. My husband and I use it almost every day. We have three furry dogs and six fluffy cats, which makes for A LOT of hair. We were using a lint roller before we bought our ChomChom Roller. The lint roller didn't work very well and had to be replaced. We have had our ChomChom Roller for months and it still works just as well as it did when we first got it. We can actually invite our friends over now without worrying about all the pet hair." —Morgan Willis

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    12. A lightweight primer so you can apply your makeup to a smooth, even surface and have it stay all day. It's made with green tea extract and collagen to protect and moisturize the skin.


    Promising review: "I wanted to give this product 10 stars but was only limited to five :( This stuff is AMAZING!!!! I'm almost 30 and my face has become super oily — like I can fry chicken on it by the end of the day. So for months I've neglected wearing any kind of foundation or makeup in general. After reading reviews I figured O would give this a try. The glow it gives you is AWESOME!!! It makes my skin so soft. I'm probably going to wear just this and no foundation 50% of the time. After the Texas heat..and the sun..and amounts of face was PERFECT......STILL! No pores... This is literally sent from heaven!!!! My ONLY dislike is the fact that you cant purchase this in five-gallon buckets!" —Jessica

    Get it from Amazon for $14.98.

    13. A white puzzle for anyone who enjoys making things harder than they need to be. Good luck once you connect all the edge pieces!

    Promising review: "I don't know how much longer I can go…it's been 12 weeks and I'm running low on supplies. 15/10" —Jacob Pabalan

    Get it from Amazon for $21.60.

    14. A cruelty-free lengthening mascara if you dream that your usually sad, stick-straight lashes would one day hold a voluminous curl. It's lightweight, won't transfer, doesn't smudge, and lasts all day — what more could you ask for?,

    Promising review: "Love this mascara! I’ve used the 'best of the best' designer, super hyped, ultra popular mascara available and NOTHING compares to this stuff! I don’t even bother using a lash curler anymore! I buy two at a time so I always have a spare (yes, it’s that good!!). I highly recommend this particular goes on effortlessly, it lasts pretty much all day, and the price — I feel like I’m almost stealing it! I’d give it a 10-star if I could!!!" —chulaboola

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    15. And once you've applied mascara, a Tweezerman eyelash comb for separating each and every individual hair so your lashes are fluttery and clump-free.

    Promising review: "If you wear lash extensions this product is an absolute must. I wish I could give 10 stars! In the photo (above) both lashes are brushed out" —Nikky Rivera

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    16. A heavy duty alarm clock that literally shakes the bed because even the heaviest sleeper wouldn't miss its 113-decibel scream. (This is the equivalent of a live rock concert taking place the bedroom.)

    Promising review: "OK!!! My boyfriend got this product for me because I am an extremely heavy sleeper!! I was very skeptical about this product at first, but let me tell you I have had if for about six months now and I still jump out of bed every time it goes off!! The part that goes under your mattress vibrates the whole damn bed. The buzzer is extremely loud and the lights are bright and blink on top of all of that. I will be using this product FOREVER!!! If you ask anyone that knows me...without this product I do not think I would have ever been on time!!!! I wish I could give this product 100 stars!!!!!! I know your thinking its so small and simple....didn't your mamma ever tell you dynamite comes in small packages!!!!" —Shopping addict!!

    Get it from Amazon for $31.90+ (available in four styles).

    17. A multi-use skincare oil to treat a variety of issues, including uneven skin, stretch marks, and acne scars. It helps your body retain moisture (bye bye dry skin!) and absorbs into the skin fast so you won't feel greasy.

    Promising review: "If I could give this product more than five stars, I would. Let me tell you my story. A few months ago I bought a new product made with charcoal (won't mention the brand or name) and it was formulated to minimize pores. It BURNED my skin. My cheeks, chin and forehead were on fire. My skin was cracked, red, itchy, swollen and EXTREMELY dry. I tried using moisturizer, aloe vera, Vaseline... EVERYTHING was hurting my skin even more. A friend told me about Bio-Oil and I decided to give it a try. Immediately after the first application my skin felt so much better. As I was massaging the oil into my skin I could feel the peeled skin coming off. My face wasn't feeling itchy anymore, and the dryness disappeared immediately. It only took two applications of this oil to make my skin heal almost completely. Now I use it on a daily basis, two times a day (morning and night) and my skin has never felt so healthy. This is the best product I've ever tried, and trust me, I've tried A LOT." —Natalia Vazquez

    Get it from Amazon for $8.92+ (available in three sizes).

    18. An immunity-boosting allergy supplement for dogs with skin sensitivities. These soft chews deliver a dose of probiotics and other nutrients to help improve immune function, aide digestion, promote healthy skin, and add shine to a dog's coat.,

    Promising review: "Love this product! I would give six stars if I could. My dog loves the flavors and always look forward to get his snack." —The TRUTH

    "I have recommended this to everyone who has dogs with allergy issues. Within a week my itchy girl stopped biting and licking and scratching her skin. Her coat is soft and she is happy! All of the stars!" —Lauren

    Get them from Amazon for $25.96+ (available in two flavors and sizes).

    19. An acne patch because pimples always pop up at the *worst* possible moment. Hydrocolloid, tea tree oil, and calendula oil are gentle on the skin while still drawing out fluids and pus from your pimple.,

    Promising review: "I am a fan for life! These spot stickers are easy to use, comfortable, adhere incredibly well, and don’t irritate my sensitive skin. For the first time in years, I’m rocking clean skin with no foundation!! At night I cleanse, apply my serum and moisturizer, then place the stickers on problem areas. The next day you can see all the white infection that is pulled out of the skin and the inflammation is gone! I usually keep reapplying to the spot to promote healing until the pain/inflammation/redness is completely gone. I’d give 10 stars if I could." —Anna Khrustaleva

    Our in-depth review of Avarelle's acne patches gets into the nitty-gritty — why they work, how to use them, and why 2,000+ people can't stop raving about them.

This set comes with a comfortable custom fit tray and an LED light so you can chill with your favorite show while your teeth whiten. If you use it consistently, you can expect a set of pearly whites that are two to eight shades whiter than before.,

    Promising review: "I bought this with hopes it would be a good alternative to the expensive teeth whitening done at my dental office and let me say it was! I saw results in just the first use and now I’m halfway through my 10 days and the results so far are incredible. It’s easy, not time-consuming and the best part IT TOTALLY WORKS. If I could give six stars I would. I even turned my husband on to using it! Will definitely be buying more from CaliWhite!" —Valdez1200

    Get it from Amazon for $35.99.

    21. A drill brush kit with three different heads if you gave up on baths a long time ago because getting your tub sparkly clean didn't feel possible. No more furiously scrubbing your tub; instead, just attach the brush head and flip the switch on your drill. Why work harder when you could work smarter?

    Promising review: "If I could give it 10 stars I would. If you have a tile shower that is the bane of your existence like need these! They clean what no human hands can in half the time. Still hard work to use but way better then the old fashioned way!" —jennifer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95 (available in soft, medium, stiff, and ultra stiff bristles).

    22. A tonsil stone remover so you can *finally* treat the root cause of your bad breath. This tool has a built-in LED light so you can easily locate the tonsil stone. Plus it also comes with a syringe to help you wash out the pocket the tonsil stone left behind.


    Promising review: "I don’t think there’s anything more disgusting than tonsil stones! Let’s face it, they irritate the back of your throat, and they STINK! I cannot begin to tell you the amount of objects I’ve put in my mouth to try to get these things out over the years, often holding a flashlight in one hand the aforementioned object in the other and straining to get a good view in the mirror. The smooth rounded semi-soft tip allows for quick and easy extrication of the stones with minimal discomfort, and the powerful light makes visualization a snap! If I could give it 10 stars I would have!" —Lee Oliver

    Get it from Amazon for $10.98.

    23. An interactive cat toy to appease your furry overlord and entertain them for hours. It'll quickly replace the bin full of other playthings you've bought your kitty over the years...and that they now won't even look at.

    Promising review: "I saw this on BuzzFeed. I didn't expect my cat to like it as much as she does. My cat would give this 10 stars if she could." —YJ

    Get it from Amazon for $1.46.

    24. A natural stain remover spray for lifting grass, blood, sweat, pasta sauce, oil, makeup, pet accidents, dirt, you name it. Plus, it's safe to use on cloths (including silk), carpets, cloth diapers, and other washable materials.

    Promising review: "If I could give this more stars, I would! One of the best stain removers I’ve found. I have a toddler and a mechanic for a husband and it takes care of all of their messes!" —Tessa

    Get it from Amazon for $11.51.

    My colleague tested and reviewed the Puracy Natural Stain Remover, saying it would "*forever* be a laundry must-have for me."

    25. A Hoover carpet cleaner that's both a vacuum and a carpet steamer so you don't have to lug out two heavy machines every time your pet has an accident.,

    Promising review: "We have four dogs and having a company come in to clean our carpets every couple months wasn't convenient, so we started looking for our own carpet cleaner. This one had many good reviews so we decided to try it. It is AMAZING!!! If I could give it more than five stars I would. It does an incredible job deep cleaning our carpets and while they are only a couple years old they look brand new when we clean them with this carpet cleaner. We were amazed at all the dirt and fur it picked up. The attachments work great, especially for the occasional puppy mess we need to clean without having to clean an entire room. Highly recommend this carpet cleaner!!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $198 (originally $249.99).

    26. A blind cleaner brush, because who has time to clean each blind individually? Not you!


    Promising review: "I love this product!! It works fantastic! I am a housekeeper for several private homes. My least favorite job is cleaning window blinds! I have used about every method there is, but the job is still very time-consuming. The main reason it takes so long is you must clean each and every slat separately to do the job right. Not any more! With this product you can clean two slats at once and it cleans them the first swipe! The microfiber is the key to getting all the dust and the design of the product makes it super easy! PLUS this tool can be used on different types of blinds because it is flexible! I have used it on wooden shutters, plastic vertical patio door blinds, and horizontal metal 'mini' blinds. Additionally, the micro fiber 'sleeve' that fits on the tool is washable and it comes with five of them so its a real value, being reusable and with so many to use it should last a long time before they all completely wear out! This product deserves 10 stars!" —Sandy D

    Get the brush and five microfiber sleeves from Amazon for $7.99.

    27. A truly ~egg-celent~ rapid egg cooker so you can enjoy omelets (or poached, soft-, medium-, or hard-boiled eggies) without ever having to dirty a pan. Reviewers even use it to steam frozen dumplings!,

    Promising review: "I love this! It's so easy to use, and I get perfect eggs every time. No more boiling on the stove with water splattering everywhere and ending up with cracked eggs. I put the eggs on and go about my business until I hear the beeping. The eggs are so easy to peel. I am addicted to poached eggs for breakfast in the morning now. I bought this in 2016 and it is still going strong. I can assure you when it goes out I will buy another one. If I could give it more than five stars, I would." —Christina G

    Get it from Amazon for $19.15 (available in five colors).

    28. A conditioner with argan and jojoba oils that'll transform your dry, lifeless, frizzy, flat hair so you can stop hiding it under a beanie.,

    Promising review: "I really love this conditioner. I am black and Puerto Rican and have curly, wavy, coarse hair. This conditioner has great slip, leaves my hair feeling really soft and even though they say rinse it out, I leave it in and don't put anything else in my hair. It defines my curls yet leaves them soft and touchable unlike gel. When I do rinse it out on wash day, my hair is so soft and already in great condition. I feel like my hair is getting healthier and healthier. I even used it as a deep conditioner. If I could leave 10 stars I would. I am ordering more right away, and I have already ordered three bottles and will probably order three more because I never want to run out. Just wish it was a little bigger." —LaVona E.

    Get it from Amazon for $17.45.

    29. A zipper repair kit to save you when you least expect it. Better stock up now or risk breaking the zipper on your jacket in bone-chilling winds or buckets of rain.

    Promising review: "Bought it. Bad zippers in Colorado weather? No dice. Kit arrived as promised, and after a quick YouTube tutorial, it was done and fixed in under a minute. Recommend? Absolutely!! Six stars." —Me

    Get it from Amazon for $11.95.

    The only thing better than five stars?
