    Everyone Has Some Slightly Embarrassing Needs And These 35 Products Are Here To Help

    Because your stinky work shoes aren't going to suddenly stop smelling awful.

    1. A stainless-steel tongue scraper to banish bad bacteria and improve stinky breath. This way you won't suffer the embarrassment of someone offering you a breath mint.

    2. A bra liner so you, a sweaty person, can step outside without the dreaded under-boob sweat. I don't care that it's winter; I. Will. Still. Sweat.

    3. A Squatty Potty, because a bout of constipation shouldn't leave you down in the ~dumps~. Squatting changes the angle of your anal canal, opening it up so it's easier for things to exit.

    4. And don't forget a before-you-go toilet spray to hide any evidence. Even if you're one of those weirdly confident people who can poop in a house full of people without issue, having this in your bathroom for others can calm nervous pooers.

    5. An acne patch for those days when a pimple pops up. Hydrocolloid, tea tree oil, and calendula oil are gentle on the skin while still drawing out fluids and pus from your pimple.

    6. A pack of lemon-scented fizzing toilet tabs that'll sanitize your bowl and keep it smelling fresh without you ever having to break a sweat. Just toss one in and let it get to work loosening stains.

    Promising review: "MIRACLE PRODUCT! If you have a flaky scalp from dandruff, BUY THIS. I was about to go to the dermatologist if this stuff didn’t work. Thank goodness I saved myself hundreds of dollars by giving this product a shot. I used it four of five times (over a month) and it cleared my scalp almost completely. One more use and my scalp will be 120% healed! This stuff blew my mind. Totally worth it." —chris

    8. A grout paint pen to cover up the mortifyingly large amount of dirt and grime that has fallen into the cracks. It works like a regular marker, so even the people who failed art can use it. And it beats actually having to clean! 🙃

    9. A cuticle oil that'll restore your shredded nails after a gel mani. A combination of sweet almond oil, vitamin E, and jojoba softens the cuticle and strengthens your claws so you'll be proud to show them off.

Give your tired arms a break and let this little guy scrub away discoloration with ease. This non-toxic cleaner is tough on dirt but gentle on porcelain so you can sit atop the listening throne you deserve.

    11. A clay mask so you can basically vacuum out your pores. It may also help reduce the frequency of your breakouts and soften your skin.

    12. A jetted tub cleaner, because who knows when the last time you cleaned it was. (I hate to break it to you, but you're probably chillaxing in dirty water.) This cleanser is made to flush out soap scum, body oils, and those black flakes that gunk up your tub's jets.

    13. A Home Chef subscription to hide the fact that you basically can't even boil water. Select your favorite recipes for the week from Home Chef's menu and they'll send you everything you need (including pre-portioned ingredients). It's so easy! They also offer ready-made meals in case you just don't have the time, energy, or inclination to cook.

    14. A soil-free AeroGarden Harvest for gardeners who are embarrassingly bad at keeping their plants alive. Good thing this hydroponic system alerts you when it's time to water and feed your plants.

    15. A collagen-coating hair treatment that's safe for all hair types and will revitalize a dry, damaged, and overprocessed mane overnight.

    16. A tube of antiperspirant hand cream to dry your hands if you suffer from hyperhidrosis (excess sweating), or if you're just nervous!

    17. A pack of AirPods cleaners if your earbuds are caked with a disgusting combination of earwax, lint, and. Squish the flexible square into your AirPod speaker, peel it off, and gasp in horror at the ear goop that's been dulling the sound quality.

    18. A tonsil stone remover for treating 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.

    19. An earwax removal kit if buildup in your ear is causing discomfort or affecting your hearing. Good thing you don't need your ears to read the 14,000+ 5-star reviews this product has garnered.

    Promising review: "I've been using Debrox for years and it has always helped me. I've always had an excessive amount of earwax and it can build up so much that I can't hear or I get earaches. Debrox is easy to use and does a great job of flushing out excess wax. If you have really stubborn earwax you can add a little bit of peroxide, wait 15 minutes, and then flush with the bulb provided." —Shanae

    20. A tub of brightening, firming, and rejuvenating eye cream because you're tired of your mom constantly asking you, "Are you getting enough sleep?" on your weekly FaceTime even though she should darn well know that your dark circles are hereditary (thnx a lot Mom!).

    21. A TubShroom if your relaxing showers have turned into you standing in a puddle of water for 15 minutes because the drain is clogged...again. This little guy snags the hair you shed before it can collect in the pipes.

    22. A heavy-duty oven scrub so no one has to know about the years of baked-on dinner explosions and drippings that coat the inside of your oven.

    23. A pack of gas-neutralizing pads that'll negate your partner's fetid flatulence. Each antimicrobial activated charcoal pad traps foul-smelling gas molecules so toxic toots are a thing of the past.

    24. A pack of DressWeights because you're tired of having to hold down your dress and waddle like a penguin until the breeze dies down.

    25. A hair finishing stick for cleaning up all those random strands that escape from ponytails and buns. It's basically like a mascara wand coated in natural plant oils for your hair. And it's so easy to use that no one will suspect that you, a full-grown adult, have no idea (literally zero) how to do you hair.
