    1. A cruelty-free lengthening mascara if you're ready to make your dream of voluminous, curly lashes come true. 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 10 stars if I could!!!" —chulaboola

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    2. A 4-in-1 inflatable pool float to make pool time even more fun. But beware — it's so dang comfortable that you might want to buy two so you don't have to share!

    Promising review: "This is the best, most comfortable float I’ve ever owned. It seems that every year, I buy more and more floats because they pop or are uncomfortable. I bought one of these last year and three this year because it’s everyone’s favorite. It’s durable and so easy to pack up, take to the beach and re-inflate. You can literally sit/lay in this float a ton of ways. And it’s inexpensive! I kept ordering $40 floats that wouldn’t last. This one is a steal!" —Kellee T

    Get it from Amazon for $14.31+ (available in 16 styles).

    3. 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 have been searching for years for a good makeup primer that will help combat my oily skin and large pores. I read a bunch of reviews for this primer and decided to give it a try. BEST decision ever. This primer goes on so smoothly and fills in my pores perfectly. I let it sit for two to five minutes before putting on my makeup, which I think helps (could just be me). I would highly recommend this primer for anyone with oily skin. It's a lifesaver and a steal for the price!!" —Sarah Rose

    Get it from Amazon for $15.50.

    4. A cold brew maker that'll come in handy if coffee is your lifeblood and you need at least three cups to get anything done.

    Diagram showing the three-step process of using the cold brew maker

    It brews a quart (4 cups), so you should have enough java to get you through the day (and maybe some left over to share with your favorite coworker).

    Promising review: "If you LOVE iced coffee (I drink it year round regardless of the weather) then you NEED this cold brewer. I work for Starbucks and I love our cold brew. I was skeptical to make it at home but I love it more than theirs. It’s especially nice since Starbucks only brews one kind of beans for cold brew, but at home you can brew your favorite kind. Absolutely love this and it’s worth more than it costs. A must-buy for yourself or a wonderful gift for the coffee lover in your life!" —j.blaine

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99.

    5. A pack of padded sports bras to offer light support during low-intensity workouts. They're made of a breathable, moisture-wicking material that's perfect for summer.

    Reviewers recommend sizing up!

    Promising review: "These look great! I was pleasantly surprised when I tried them on. The cups actually have a nice shape so these are the only bras where I keep the cups in. (I hate removable cups). The strappy back is really cool and exactly what I wanted. I wear these exclusively for strength training or LIIS as I know they don't have the support for cardio. What a steal honestly, three for that price! Recommend." —Paulina

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S–3XL and seven styles).

    6. An acne patch for those days when a pimple pops 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 have tried many of the acne patches that are becoming increasingly popular. This is by far the best brand I have tried. There is a good variety of sizes in this packet. I wash my face in the evening and apply a patch. In the morning, the patch is clearly filled and the size of the pimple has significantly reduced and redness is gone. It is honestly a lifesaver and it is an absolute steal for the price!" —Brankica Cosic

    Get 40 round patches from Amazon for $8.50 (also available in XL square patches).

    Our in-depth review of Avarelle's acne patches gets into the nitty-gritty — why they work, how to use them, and why 4,000+ people can't stop raving about them.

    7. A mounted brush that'll satisfy your cat's ceaseless demands for scritches. Just mount it to a corner with the included adhesive strips and watch as your beloved babies leave you for the warm embrace of this gray and white piece of plastic.,

    Promising review: "My kitty boy is IN LOVE with this product! He immediately started rubbing on it when I set it up, and once he got in the groove of it, he was going nonstop for like five minutes! The bristles are firm, but not so much that a cat can unintentionally hurt itself on it. It's also great for brushing off shedding fur on the head area, and it catches a lot of it, although some ends up in a clump on my boy's neck (which I think is hilarious). Overall, this was a $5 product that I would pay $10+ for, and I'm over the moon with it!" —Emily Boyles

    Get it from Amazon for $3.33.

    8. A memory foam seat cushion with cooling gel because you deserve to be able to sit without pain. It supports your tailbone, and reviewers say it also helps relieve lower back pain.

    The cushion, which has a soft removable cover

    Promising review: "I bought this item to help relive coccyx pain from riding my motorcycle. When I sit for very long I start to squirm as sitting gets more and more uncomfortable until it starts to get painful and I have to get up and move around. I've had this seat cushion for two days now, and as I was sitting here reading the news on my laptop I realized I'd been sitting for a couple of hours, pain-free! This seat cushion is well worth the cost and then some!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $32.95.

    9. A collagen-coating hair treatment that'll revitalize a mane that's dry, damaged, and overprocessed. Waking up with frizz-free hair? Umm, yes please!

    Bek O'Connell/BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "So far, I've just tried it for two days and I cannot believe the difference in how my hair feels. I am very skeptical of reviews I read here, but I have to say this truly worked so far and the price is unbeatable. I've spent more on other products but this is worth what I paid and more!" —Gabriella Zendejas

    Get it from Amazon for $8.29.

    Read our review of Elizavecca's CER-100 Collagen Coating Hair Protein Treatment to learn more about why my colleague calls it, "the miracle product I've been searching for."

    10. A bottle of rosehip oil if your skin has lost its glow. Its antioxidants and fatty acids may help brighten dark spots and restore your skin's plumpness. Use it on your face, nails, and body for scrumdiddlyumptious results.,

    Promising review: "In just two weeks there was a dramatic change in my acne scars. I could not believe it! Finally a product that lightens my blemishes. For just $15, this is a steal — especially considering how long I know this bottle will last. I only use five to six drops every night." —Kenn C.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    11. A Cuisinart juicer for satisfying your thirst for fresh juices. Homemade, fresh-squeezed OJ > bottled OJ any day!,

    Promising review: "Saves you time and effort, which alone makes it more than worth the price. But given the extra juice you'll be getting out of your fruit, this will pay for itself soon enough!" —John M. Perry

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95 (originally $55).

    12. A multi-use skincare oil so you can say bye bye to uneven skin, stretch marks, and acne scars. It helps your body retain moisture (see ya later, dry skin!) and absorbs into the skin fast so you won't feel greasy.

    Psst! Bio-Oil contains retinol, which accelerates skin turnover but can make you more sensitive to the sun — so don't forget your sunscreen!

    Promising review: "I am in love with this stuff. This is an absolute steal for the price. I've been using for about one month. It has totally changed the overall appearance of my skin and I've had many comments remarking on how my skin is 'glowing.' To keep this short, I will be using this regularly and would absolutely recommend without hesitation!" —jbt

    Get it from Amazon for $8.89+ (available in three sizes).

    13. A bandeau bikini to celebrate the ~sea-son~ with a cute new bathing suit. ~Water~ you waiting for? It's such a good price that there's no need to ~flip-flop~ — just get it!,

    Promising review: "Very happy with this purchase! Bathing suits are always tricky for me to buy without trying on first since I am bigger on top and smaller on the bottom. This bathing suits fits perfect and the bottoms are very flattering and the top hugs my boobs perfectly! No under-boob falling out! For the price, this bathing suit is a steal!" —Caroline Pisarski

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes and S–XL and 24 colors).

    14. A spa-worthy clay mask because reviewers swear by it for reducing the frequency of their breakouts and softening their skin. Reviewers with natural hair say it helped define their curls and clarified their scalp so moisturizing products could actually penetrate their strands.

    Promising review: "This is the gold standard for face masks. This is great for helping control my big breakouts and ugly zits, but it also keeps the rest of my skin looking nice by controlling blackheads and evening out my skin tone. It doesn't irritate my skin at all, though it can get uncomfortable when it's drying. A tub lasts forever, so it's more than worth the price." —Sara

    Get it from Amazon for $12.90 (available in two sizes).

    15. A broom for pet hair if your vacuum can't quite loosen all the fur that's trapped in your carpet. It works just as well on wood and linoleum, with the rubber head working as a magnet to attract stray hairs. There's also a built-in squeegee for wiping up liquids or for cleaning glass. Plus, the handle extends from 36 to 60 inches so it can reach practically any mess.,

    Promising review: "I can’t speak to carpeting, BUT on hardwood for dirt, dust, and dog hair, it is AMAZING! This broom brought together piles of dog hair that I couldn’t even SEE on the floor. How does my dog even have any fur left after what I’ve gotten off the floor??? I think I paid like $14 or $15 for this. Worth every single penny and more. And the squeegee side works very well on liquids and fine powder (think spilled flour). Fear not. Get this broom!" —Todd J. Thompson

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    16. And a devastatingly effective handheld vacuum so you can suck up pet hair like a pro. It has a special rubber nozzle that picks up fur with ease, especially on hard-to-vacuum areas like stairs. There's no bag, so simply pop off the canister when you're done vacuuming and dump the contents in the trash.

    Promising review: "WOW!!! This is legit the best thing to happen to my couches EVER. This product is worth WAYYYY more than I paid. I’m still baffled at how quick and easily this cleans the pet hair from my couches. By far the best hair removal vacuum I have ever used. Make sure apply some pressure when you use this and it works PERFECT!!" —Elizabeth

    Get it from Amazon for $30.99.

    17. A handheld milk frother to convince you to forgo a trip to a coffee shop in favor of making a luxurious latte at home.


    Promising review: "We bought this milk frother to replace an automatic one, and I can say that this frother is even more effective than the more expensive, automatic frother. Within 30 seconds, this frother is able to froth a cup of milk, and it is so incredibly easy to clean as well. What's more, it comes with a convenient stand that does not take up much room on the kitchen counter. At its price point, this frother is a steal!" —Alice Y.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.48+ (available in three colors).

    18. An at-home teeth whitening kit because lightening your smile shouldn't come with an exorbitant dentist bill. 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: "This is by far the best product I've used! In the past I've used Crest Strips that worked decently well, but they made my teeth extremely sensitive, so much that I had trouble sleeping the night of. This product does not have that affect whatsoever, and I immediately noticed a whiter smile. I absolutely love them and I got it for a steal of a deal. Will definitely be purchasing more in the future... I'm gonna get my husband some as well. 😁" —rachel bowden

    Get it from Amazon for $35.99.

    19. An eye compression mask if even a speck of light makes it difficult for you to fall asleep. It was designed by an orthopedic surgeon to help relieve migraines, tension headaches, sinus pain, and eye strain, plus it's filled with massaging beads to reduce pressure on your eyes.

    The mask

    Promising review: "My wife has migraines and lesser headaches sometimes as well. Gives significant pain relief although not usually total and never total for migraines once they escalate to full level. However, sometimes it gives total relief to lesser headaches. The relief it does give is superior to most anything we have tried in past and we found it to be a definite boon and well worth such an in expensive price; indeed, I would pay at least 10 times its cost (and probably more) for the benefit it has given my wife." —Richard Ince PhD

    Get it from Amazon for $13.54.

    20. A body scrub so you can have skin as smooth as a baby's bottom. It's made with a nourishing mixture of hydrating oils that'll polish your skin and give it a healthy glow.

    The scrub

    Promising review: "This scrub smells so good and the scrub itself is not too soft or hard, it's just right! For the price, this is a steal! I will be ordering more." —Jenna

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in six scents).

    21. A blackhead remover vacuum with a powerful head to suction up blackheads, whiteheads, grease, and leftover makeup the night before a big first date that you *will* have clear skin for. It comes with four different attachments for all your skincare needs, as well as five suction levels so you can clear up your skin without painful blackhead-removing strips.,

    Promising review: "Where has this been all of my life?!? Huge difference the first time I used it. Especially the clogged pores on my chin and around my nose. I used on the lowest setting with no issues of bruising. It’s surprising how well it works. At $30 it’s a steal!" —Jade scarbrough

    Get it from Amazon for $29.09 (available in two colors).

    22. A 14-piece makeup brush set for crafting any and every makeup look your heart desires.

    The brush set

    Promising review: "First of all, I got these so quick! I feel like I just ordered them and they came this morning! And to top of the incredibly fast shipping, these brushes look like HIGH quality makeup brushes. If I had to guess how much these brushes were I would’ve probably said $70–$90 for the set. The fact that I only paid $10 for the whole set is such a steal! If you’re considering buying these you definitely should, so worth it!" —Brooke Bray

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in four colors).

    23. A maxi dress that'll keep you cool and stylish this summer — even if you plan to spend all summer indoors, taking advantage of the AC.,

    Promising review: "It was a great buy and I love the navy. It was not see through and was a great thickness. The split was very modest and can be worn to almost anything. I wore this to a second marriage wedding, which was casual and I felt great. I received many compliments. I paired mine with a jean jacket and beige bootie heels. Snagged a necklace/bracelet combo from Walmart with the different shades of blue for $7! This whole outfit was a great steal." —courtney

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and 23 colors).

    24. A pair of super soft high-waisted leggings because your body deserves this level of comfort. More than 6,000 people have given them a 5-star review and say they're definitely opaque so you can live your best life without worrying about showing everyone your underwear.,

    Promising review: "These are definitely my new favorite leggings, I own them in four colors and plan to buy more. The colors of the actual leggings are just as bold and vibrant as the photos, which I love. Buying clothes online can be tricky because the colors or fit of the product rarely matches. They fit and frame my body like a glove, and are also sooo soft and smooth. The high waistband is so helpful on days that I want to wear a crop top and isn’t uncomfortable at all. I can’t get over how soooffffttttt these leggings are. Usually leggings that are soft are a little too warm. These are great quality and feel silky smooth on my skin, keep me warm, but are also breathable. I’ve worn these alone with just a top, and have also worn them as a base layer under my jeans for a trip that I recently went on. The quality of these leggings exceeds the price. I was worried about them being one size, but they fit me perfectly. All in all I’d say these are a steal for what you pay, and they're definitely something I will be getting a lot of use out of." —Stefania Veneri

    Get them from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in one size and plus size; capri or regular lengths; and 23 colors).

    25. A pebbled leather tote if you're looking for a roomy bag with space for all your snacks, old receipts you keep forgetting to throw away, a water bottle, your wallet, your phone, your car, your house, you get the point.,

    Promising review: "I bought the tote in orange, and I have been using it every day for the past week. It pairs well with many of my booties and fall/winter accessories. The bag itself is soft, but can stand on its own. I have been using it for work and filling it up with books and stacks of paper. The bag is quite durable (a steal for the price)! This is definitely a great everyday tote bag!" —Mi-chan

    Get it from Amazon for $14.53+ (available in a variety of colors).
