    1. Dishwasher cleaning tablets to do practically all the work for you — no scrubbing needed! Say goodbye to having to wash your dishes and plates again by hand because they're coated in mysterious white crusty bits.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My dishwasher was getting into horrible shape. The top tray would stick and bind no matter how careful I was. The bottom tray was making noises when I moved it. The whole inside of the dishwasher was growing a coating of white mineral deposits. The washing arms were making noises during wash cycles. The dishes were not getting clean. When my order of Affresh arrived, I ran a clean cycle. When I opened the dishwasher at the end, it was clean. Both trays moved easily. The washing arms were clean. The next load of dishes was spotless. Now I run a cleaning cycle the first of every month. This is one product that I will not do without. My dishwasher is five years old, but after using Affresh it looks virtually new." —Mithrandir

    2. A cruelty-free lengthening mascara, because who doesn't want to be this fabu~lash~? It's lightweight, won't transfer, doesn't smudge, and lasts all day — what more could you ask for?

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "After using Lights, Camera, Lashes by Tarte 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 work day 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.

    3. A dandruff shampoo if you'd really like to banish white flakes from your scalp ASAP. It's made with ketoconazole 1%, an antifungal ingredient that'll tell your dandruff it's no longer welcome here.

    amazon.com

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $14.84 (or Subscribe & Save for $14.40/month).

    4. A color-changing, motion-activated toilet light that'll come in handy when you stumble into the bathroom bleary-eyed at 3 a.m.

    The light inside a toilet bowl glowing blue
    amazon.com

    I lost power in my apartment for almost two days, which meant no heat 🙃, no electricity, and no bathroom lights. Thank god my boyfriend insisted on attaching one of these to the toilet, because it meant I no longer had to pee in total darkness — which still makes me nervous even though I'm supposed to be an adult.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this product, especially because with a husband and a son, they tend to sprinkle on the toilet seat in the middle of the night. With the color set to any bright color (like white, yellow, green, or blue) it illuminates every single sprinkle on the seat! You will no longer have a bottom wet with boy pee in the middle of the night! When I purchased this I bought a case of AAA batteries thinking I would have to change them often (with six people in the house they get used often). However I have not had to change the batteries once in a few months! Also the sensor is super sensitive so it turns on as you're coming in the door, or even a little before. Just a great product all around." —Angela

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $13.89.

    5. A Tushy bidet attachment if you want to pamper your patootie. Not only will it help you use less TP, but it also just leaves you feeling cleaner after you go.

    Tushy

    This is the bidet I use and I 100% recommend to my friends, family, and to you, dear reader. Installation was pretty simple; from start to poop it took about 15 minutes. The sensation is truly something if you've never experienced it before, but the cool water will probably feel good once it's summer and my apartment gets nice and steamy.

    Get it from Tushy on Amazon for $79.

    6. A brown sugar bear so your baking plans aren't derailed by rock hard sugar. This will keep brown sugar moist for three to six months so you never have to put your cakes, pies, crumbles, muffins, or cobblers on hold.

    Reviewer holding the bear
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "After multiple containers for my brown sugar and continuously throwing my brown sugar away due to giant hard lumps... I began to wonder why our brown sugar never lumped as a child... And that's when I remembered a weird brown bear in our sugar... After a quick Google search I found this! I soaked it in water for 30 minutes and then added to my lumpy brown sugar... Two days later there is not a single lump in my sugar! Yay!" —Sneezeloaf

    Get it from Amazon for $9.49.

    7. A bottle of Olaplex No. 3, a splurge-worthy repairing treatment for reviving your dry, damaged, colored hair. As someone who spends four-plus hours bleaching my hair every six to eight weeks, I can 100% vouch for this miracle in a bottle.

    Before and after of BuzzFeed editor who used the treatment showing it made her damaged, frizzy bleached blonde hair look smoother, shinier, and healthier
    Elena Garcia / BuzzFeed

    I went from very dark brown/almost black Asian hair to platinum blonde, a color I've maintained for almost four years. I truly believe the only reason I still have hair on my head is because 1. my colorist is amazing and 2. Olaplex. Despite having pretty strong hair, I remember globs of it breaking off in the shower right after I bleached my mane. In a panic, I bought a bottle of Olaplex and my hair has been thanking me ever since. I hate how expensive a single small bottle is, but I truly can't be without this. It's reduced breakage and brittleness, minimized frizziness, and just generally helped my hair look healthy.

    Get it from Sephora $28.

    My colleague (pictured above) also swears by this stuff. Check out her Olaplex review here for more deets and some before and afters that'll make you buy this in bulk.

    8. A pack of bottle-cleaning tablets that'll remove stains and stinky smells after you accidentally left coffee in your mug a few too many times.

    Progression photo showing a stained mug, the mug with foaming liquid inside, and the mug after it's been cleaned looking shiny and brand new
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Be sure to use hot water; even though it won't foam as much it seems to do a lot better job. The first time I used these on a Contigo travel mug I used room-temp water, and it just came out OK. For the next travel mug, I used boiling water and the results were terrific. It looks new again. Then I used two cubes (and boiling water) in a large old pressure cooker that had become brown inside from years of making vegetable soups, and I'm amazed how clean it came out. That pressure cooker stain persisted throughout dozens of scrubbing sessions and dishwasher runs, so I figured the Bottle Bright wouldn't help either but it did." —MisterPlow

    Get 12 tablets from Amazon for $8.

    9. A pack of foaming garbage disposal cleaner for deodorizing your sink. Reviewers say it'll take you less than five minutes, which is perfect for when your dinner party guests are about to arrive and you realize your drains smell like rotting food.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Performs exactly as describes. Have two kitchen sinks that had odors. Tried in both and both no longer have a smell. I'd highly recommend this product to anyone who wants to clean their kitchen drains." —DPK

    Get a two-pack (good for eight uses) from Amazon for $10.49.

    10. A collagen-coating hair treatment that'll make next-day bedhead a thing of the past. It's safe for all hair types and will revitalize a mane that's dry, damaged, and overprocessed. Waking up with frizz-free hair? Umm, yes please!

    Bek O'Connell/BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "My hair used to be really soft, and then I discovered hot tools and hair dye. While my hair looks good I really missed the soft texture. This works so well. There are no instructions on the box but I washed my hair with my usual shampoo, towel dried it, worked about two quarter-sized dollops through my hair, let it sit for 20 minutes and then rinsed out. I went to bed with wet hair which usually results in my hair being kind of tangled and rough looking but I woke up and my hair was as soft and silky as it was before I started coloring it. I'm totally in love with this product, I have long fine hair but this doesn't leave it greasy or weigh it down. I'll definitely buy again." —Ellie

    Get it from Amazon for $7.40.

    Read my colleague's Elizavecca CER-100 Collagen Coating Hair Protein Treatment review (#1) to learn more about she calls it, "the miracle product I've been searching for."

    11. A pack of light-dimming stickers to prevent bright alarm clocks and flashing electronics from distracting you when you're trying to sleep.

    The sheets
    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is the best thing you never knew you needed. I own a digital clock with the numbers displayed in red LED light, and every night I've blocked the light with a cover so it doesn't shine in my eyes as I sleep. Silly I know, but I like my room pitch black and cave-like. On a whim I bought this product. OH MY GOD! Game changer!! For the first night EVER I didn't have to cover the clock display before I went to bed!! I had no idea how big a difference this little dimmer could make, but I'm more than pleased with the result. I can still see the time display just fine, but now my room is a happy cave! Some commenters argue you could get the same effect using electrical tape but this product is easy to remove and doesn't leave a sticky residue at all, which can't be said for most tapes. I did notice a slight lag in response when I covered my TV LED sensor, so if you're trying to block something that actually senses inputs I would maybe not suggest this. Other than that, excellent product!" —Amazon Customer

    Get a sheet of more than 100 stickers of varying shapes and sizes Amazon for $6.88. These larger dimming sheets from Amazon are $8.99 for two 6-by-3-inch stickers and work wonders if you're trying to cover a larger surface area, like a clock face.

    12. An acne patch for erasing and healing your pimples overnight. Hydrocolloid, tea tree oil, and calendula oil are gentle on the skin while still drawing out fluids and pus from your pimple.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I cannot say enough about these patches! They are my skin savior! I actually gave myself a facial where I pushed up all the blackheads and whiteheads from my pores, which is why there is so much pus on the patches (gross, I know), but I couldn’t believe all of that was trapped in my skin!! Woke up and removed the patches, not a single pimple! If I would've not put these on, guaranteed I would have woken to multiple pimples in the area. I usually break out when I try to exfoliate and extract, so I only do it when my pores start to look huge and filled (yuck). I am now a true believer, leave the 'spot treatment' creams and switch to these! They will pull out that whitehead and reduce your pimple to practically nothing overnight! And it’s safer than a cream that just brings all that gunk to the surface but doesn’t actually remove it... then when you do your left with an oozing pre-scar for the rest of the day! I am now a monthly subscriber. I will never use anything else. In fact, just ordered the XL acne patches to pull out more gunk on my forehead (live in AZ, constantly sweating and naturally oily). Thank you for making such a great product!!" —jennifer9

    Our in-depth review of Avarelle's acne patches gets into the nitty-gritty — why they work, how to use them, and why 20,000+ people can't stop raving about them.

    13. A robot window cleaner you can control from your phone, because we are truly living in the future. Reviewers also use it to clean their shower walls and even their floors!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    The Gladwell Gecko Robot Window Cleaner uses AI to clean every inch of your windows and is especially handy if you can't reach the tops of your tall windows. It comes with an app so you can control it from your phone.

    Promising review: "This product is sooooo cool! I live in the desert and my windows need constant cleaning to keep the dust away. I don't even need to spray my windows with cleaner unless there are fingerprints — and even then it’s not always needed. I sit the Gecko on the window while I vacuum or do laundry. It beeps when it’s done and then I move it to the next window. Extremely simple!" —Karen Kline

    Get it from Amazon for $199.95.

    14. A two-inch blind spot mirror if you need help seeing *everything* around you (it's called a blind spot for a reason!) when you're driving.

    The round version on a side mirror
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought these for my and my mom's car a while ago and these little things are great. Since I got my license I've hated merging or switching lanes; I never felt good or safe doing it. Since having these it's been a blessing; I feel less like a scared new driver. I'm currently encouraging my sister and friends to invest in these too! These are also great for backing up because you can see exactly how close you are to hitting the car behind, which is helpful when I parallel park in the city. I also like parking backwards, so this great for helping with that too." —Mariam Abass

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $5.97.

    15. A soft yet supportive toe separator that's discreet enough to wear inside your regular shoes if standing is painful. Over time, it may help correct bunions and hammertoes.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This product (along with a splint at night) has been helping correct my big toe move out, thus relieving the pain of the bunion. I wear it under my socks during work and have barely any pain while being on my feet all day!" —April

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

    16. A three-layer door stopper if you need to block out the sounds of annoying roommates while also maintaining the temperature in your room. Installation is easy: simply cut the strip to size and attach it to your door using the built-in adhesive backing.

    The door stopper attached to the bottom of the door
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I’m renting an apartment and my front door doesn’t brush up against the floor. There was about an inch gap which was annoying because it meant light, noise, and bugs could get in. Ever since I’ve installed this, I’ve had almost no bugs, no light, and so much less sound! It’s great. The sound-blocking is especially amazing because my bedroom is near the front door and I hated hearing my neighbors conversations clear as day in the stairwell. It’s not totally noise cancelling but it’s so much better." —airazedy

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in four colors).

    17. A liquid tartar remover that'll help clean your doggo's teeth, because lord knows they will not let you within 5 feet of them if they see you coming with a toothbrush. Think of this as doggy mouthwash! Just add this to their water and you'll notice your dog's plaque and bad breath subside.

    Comparison of reviewer's dog's teeth showing the water additive lightened the brown plaque stains noticeably
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My dog's molars were turning black and he had a ton of buildup on his canines, and his gums were beginning to look inflamed. And, of course, his breath could kill a horse. After one week of constant use (a cap full for every bowl of water) you could see an obvious difference in tooth color. I was blown away. (Why can’t human mouthwash do such a good job on our teeth?) After three weeks, his molars were almost completely clean. After a couple of months of use, the plaque on his canines was soft enough to brush some of it off, which was totally impossible before. Plaque covered the canine approximately 70%. Obviously that's no longer the case. IDK what insane solvent this is made of, but it keeps his gross mouth clean as a whistle. Now I don’t have to worry about my picky priceless mutt losing his teeth because he can’t be bothered to chew anything." —BaconPancakes

    Get it from Amazon for $7.30+ (available in three flavors and two sizes).

    18. An air purifier for anyone who's been having trouble breathing easily through the night. This bad boy removes dander, mold, dust, and pollen in the air to help you sleep better.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is an excellent purifier for those who are affected by cat dander, mold, and other problems associated with breathing difficulties. I have several cats so there is so much hair in the air in addition to their dander. This machine has solved my breathing problems during the night (I use it in my bedroom). In fact I am sleeping better every night, which I'm sure is due to the cleaner air that I am breathing. Another plus is that I'm using a great deal less tissues." —Linda Cruz

    Get it from Amazon for $68.39 (available in two colors).

    19. A weighted blanket to help reduce your anxiety so you can feel well-rested sometime this decade. This specific weighted blanket comes with two covers: one that'll keep hot sleepers cool and another that'll retain heat so you're cozy and warm.

    Amazon

    Using a weighted blanket may increase your serotonin levels because the weight mimics the sensation of being held or hugged. The release of serotonin and oxytocin (often nicknamed the "love hormone") can lower your stress levels and lessen anxiety, which may make it easier for you to drift off.

    Promising review: "Imagine being trapped under a 15-pound bag of beans in a box half your size somewhere, but instead of being trapped you're comfortably cocooned and the bag of beans is actually just a blanket and you're in a bed that's the perfect size. Your initial thought of a 15-pound blanket is terrifying and confusing, but once it's on, you slip into absolute bliss. This blanket gives a sense of comfortability and security, no one with zero muscle tone will be able to disturb the deep slumber you will fall into while this blanket is on you. Great for falling asleep and putting aside the worries and concerns about the monsters under your bed trying to get you, because we all know they give up at the slightest inconvenience. Also it is really a great relaxation gift for others!" —Amazon Customer

    Get an 18-pound blanket from Amazon for $76.49 (available in 10 weights and three colors).

    20. An argan oil hair mask, because dry winter weather can wreak havoc on your mane. This can repair your hair's elasticity and make it soft and shiny again overnight.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is awesome!!! I'm an African American with natural hair that is extremely kinky! I also had split ends so bad I could barely get my hair to flat iron properly. This stuff instantly 'healed' my split ends and made my hair really shiny. After four years of being natural I finally found something to work for me!!" —Peachzpooh

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    21. A pack of air purifying bags so the questionable odors that are coming from your shoes are gone overnight. There's nothing more awkward trying to figure out where the stink is coming from...and then realizing it's you.

    The bags inside shoes
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have a pair of black leather flats that stank so badly my husband would yell at me if I took them off anywhere near him. But I love the shoes, so I had to find something to make the stench go away without leaving me with an allergic reaction. Mini Moso was the answer. I honestly couldn’t believe it. A few days after placing them in my prized shoes I took a whiff from about a foot away. Nothing. I got closer. Nothing. I stuck my nose practically in the shoe. Ok, maybe that’s pushing things, but I’ve got to tell you that 95% of the broken-in leather grossness was gone. So happy!!!" —Erin

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $9.95 (available in two colors).

    22. Or a natural shoe deodorizer spray, because we all deserve to slip into fresh-smelling shoes. It's made with essential oils and smells like lemon and eucalyptus so you'll probably want to spray it around the rest of your house.

    The spray bottle
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing! I used for stinky shoes that I use all the time for commuting and it knocked out the odor overnight. Leaves a pleasant essential oil smell on the shoes while they're drying. I didn't notice it while I was wearing the shoes and it's not overly strong. SO much better than a chemical nasty scent or aerosol sprays!" —Jessica Haworth

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    23. An argan oil hair mask to repair your hair's elasticity and make it soft and shiny again overnight. If you think you're awful at doing your hair, it could just be that split ends and dryness are making it hard to style your strands — and this deep conditioner can help with that. It's safe for all hair types and is paraben- and sulfate-free.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My favorite deep conditioner. It makes my hair super moisturized, soft, and shiny. I like to keep mine in overnight and wash it with shampoo and conditioner in the morning. Great results!" —Kayla Kephart

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    24. A hair repair serum with hydrating argan oil, aloe vera, and vitamin E that'll give you the sleek, shiny, static-free hair of your dreams.

    Reviewer before and after showing the hair serum reduced frizz and made their hair look softer and shinier
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I found this product through a BuzzFeed article for those with frizzy hair and THIS PRODUCT DID NOT DISAPPOINT, PEOPLE! I put this serum through the ringer; I got this to stand up to Bay Area fog AND the nasty, humid heat wave we got a couple weeks ago. No frizz, no extra curls. Nothing! On top of that, it made my hair super glossy. I'm very impressed. Heads up though, a little goes a long way. One pump is enough to cover my hair and I have medium-length hair. Also, it can make your hair look oily if you use too much. I do have oily hair so working on my ends first then working to my roots works for me." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    25. A tub of O'Keeffe's hand cream so you can replenish the moisture in your dry, cracked hands. It forms a protective layer around your hands, locking in hydration and preventing moisture from escaping.

    Before and after showing the hand cream dramatically moisturized reviewer's hands
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have suffered from splitting and cracking fingers every fall and winter for years. I tried Eucerin, Lubriderm, and Gold Bond creams, but none seemed to relieve the splitting from reoccurring. I tried O'Keeffe's Working Hand Cream and within two-and-a-half days, the splitting and cracking were no longer a factor. Since using the cream, I have not suffered any more cracking or splitting. I am on a busy schedule and only use it at night when I go to bed. It says it's non-greasy but you can definitely feel a slick texture on your hands once applied. That's why I use it at night before bed when I don't have to open door knobs, touch smartphones, or shake hands. It has the texture of cake icing, goes on smooth and works into the skin quickly. It has no smell I can detect. I am so glad I found this cream, it has ended years of split and cracked fingers/hands." —T.H.

    26. A Squatty Potty that'll help solve the constipation that's leaving you down in the ~dumps~. Squatting changes the angle of your anal canal, opening it up so it's easier for things to exit.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "What can I say? The process of excretion can only be compared to a real life exorcism where it feels, pleasantly if I may add, that the devil himself is trying to burst out of your gut. Needless to say, the stool changed my life. I found myself creating excuses to run to my magical place and discharge whatever little portion of food was left inside me; I was hooked. Soon people started wondering why I've become so distant; the stool had taken over my life. It would have taken over your life too if you would have experienced the kind of pleasure that I was now enjoying; it was my high." —Dino

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    27. A robot vacuum you can run for a few hours every day so you don't have a mountain of pet fur to hoover on the weekend.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "After running Eufy for nearly two months now, I can confidently say I absolutely LOVE it! It is amazing on my hardwood floors. It picks up sooo much fine dust brought in by my two German Shepards! They shed year-round! And it’s super effective with pet hair! Wow! I use Eufy once a day for a little more than hour, emptying and cleaning the brushes out about three to four times during use. It seriously has been life-changing, keeping my floors cleaner than sweeping! Great purchase and I would highly recommend!!" —Jacqueline M

    Get it from Amazon for $219.99 (also available in white).

    28. A bottle of Fanola purple shampoo to tone and remove yellowness in your hair between appointments.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is a dark blue shampoo, so I did not let it stay on my hair long because I was afraid it would turn the 'old lady blue.' My hair looked more silver, shiny, and had a 'clean' appearance. I am very happy with this shampoo, and will be reordering. My hair was soft and easy to manage, with no flyaways." —CharlieCub

    Get it from Amazon for $13.49+ (available in three sizes).

    29. A car seat gap filler you've probably seen on Shark Tank, because there's nothing more frustrating than dropping your phone down the crack between your seat and the console and going, "Welp, there goes my phone forever."

    The gap filler between the seat and console
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I just don’t understand why I didn’t buy this sooner. It’s one of those things that you’re not really sure why you need it but once you have it, you can’t live without. It saved my poor arm from having to dig my keys, cellphone, pens, French fries, hair ties, you-name-it from between the seat gap. Seriously, it’s awesome." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99.

    30. A bottle of rosehip oil to inject your skin with devastatingly effective antioxidants and fatty acids that help brighten dark spots and restore your skin's plumpness. It's safe to use on your face, nails, and body, and the results are scrumdiddlyumptious — especially if you use it consistently and over time.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I literally think this stuff is THE fountain of youth. If you have a pimple you messed with, this will cure it overnight. Dry skin? Cured. Sunburned?? Cured. Pimple coming in? Gone. It’s amazing. Also helped even out my skin tone. I’m obsessed. My tween daughter swears by it as well. HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND. It's a must in every bathroom or makeup area." —Bree Adams

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    31. A set of produce storage containers for keeping your fruits and veggies fresh longer. No more buying a carton of strawbs only to watch them brown after like two days, because, I'm sorry, I cannot eat that many strawberries all at once, OK?

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I live alone and therefore have a lot of trouble getting fresh vegetables to last long enough for me to eat them up. I was throwing away a lot. I had to quit eating salads at home. But these containers have saved the day. They really work to keep veggies such as spinach and baby kale much longer. I've had cherry tomatoes sitting on my counter in the smaller container for about two weeks and they are just fine! I've been eating them slowly and they are almost gone but still fresh looking." —Shakti

    32. A hair finishing stick if you're tired of those random strands that escape from ponytails and buns making your hair look messy. You'll thank me for buying this when you're running late and need to tidy your look.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have super fine hair with lots of breakage. No matter how I put my hair up I have bad flyaways. This stuff is great! So easy and it stays better and looks smoother than stiff hair spray." —Jill Stilfield

    Get it from Amazon for $6.38.

    33. A double-sided edges brush for smoothing and laying your edges (if you want to!). On one end is a boar bristle brush that gently massages your scalp and increases blood flow and hair growth. The other end is a mini comb to polish your look.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    It goes without saying that you 100% do not need to lay your edges if you don't want to!

    Promising review: "I didn't see the point in buying an edge control brush with a comb attachment. I figured I could just go to the dollar store and get a soft bristle toothbrush and call it a day. Boy was I wrong! I brought this product on a whim due to the price. I'm glad I did. I will be buying another one for my daughter. I especially love the comb attachment. It makes swooping the tiniest baby hairs a breeze. The brush is a bit hard for my taste but it's gentle enough not to grab and rip out hair." —Tina

    Promising review: "This product is amazing. I've always had acrylic or dipped nails because my real nails have always been brittle and always break and peel. I decided to give my nails a break and wanted to try and grow them out. I can't even believe the outcome! They are stronger than ever and growing! I really wish I had taken a before pic to show the difference!" —JOE D.

    Promising review: "This stuff works! I’ve never had a wart in my life! At first I thought it was a small callus but as months went by it was getting larger. I started to google and realized I had a plantar wart on my thumb! Eww, embarrassing! So I got the freeze off and thought 'This has to work!' Nope! I tried the freeze off three times and nothing! I than realized the same thing was happening on my other thumb, a small callus but I knew that the wart had spread! Now I was desperate to get rid of them and knew I had waited too long! Bought the invisible strips and it removed my small wart in four days and my big wart in eight!! I couldn’t believe it. I left strips on for two days then pulled back the dead skin with a cuticle clipper and reapplied! My bigger wart was a little tougher to remove and I had irritated my skin trying to cut it out, so I left it alone for few days before reapplying strip and by the second 48-hour treatment, it was gone! I thought my skin would be damaged but it looks like nothing was ever there!" —Audrey N.
