    29 Products That Reviewers Said Actually Did What They Advertised

    Reviewers say they're worth the hype.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Some may have been sent as samples, but all opinions and reviews are our own.

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

    1. 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).

    2. A waterproof trash can to keep your garbage off the floor of your car and out of sight.

    3. The Wand, a mini handheld filter that may help reduce your wine-induced headaches. This lil' guy is designed to remove the histamines and sulfites in alcohol that may trigger headaches and hangovers. It's also supposed to revive oxidized wine so you don't have to toss an open bottle.

    4. 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.

    5. A foaming garbage disposal cleaner if your sink is starting to reek. With this, your kitchen will always smell fresh (and no one will have to know there was no scrubbing needed).

    6. A box of pore-tightening, skin-lifting face masks that'll truly terrify you at 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.

    7. A Revlon hot air brush so you can go from wet, tangled, frizzy hair to a sleek and shiny blowout in minutes. FYI this is the hot air brush that all the influencers you follow on IG are raving about because it is just 👏 that 👏 good 👏.

    8. A jar opener for loosening that impossible-to-open pickle jar. It's great for people with mobility issues or people who just have zero forearm strength (it me!).

    9. A devastatingly effective handheld vacuum to suck up pet hair. 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.

    10. A blackhead remover vacuum with a powerful head to suction up blackheads, whiteheads, grease, and leftover makeup. 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.

    11. A hair finishing stick that'll clean 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.

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

    13. 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 1,500+ five-star reviews this product has garnered.

    14. A veggie spiralizer to turn your favorite fruits and veggies into delicious edible ribbons.

    15. A set of hair clips from Shark Tank for anyone who wants a professional-looking cut at home. Just clip it to your hair, slide it to the length you want, and trim until you achieve the bangs or layers that used to cost you way too much money at the salon.

    16. A pack of dishwasher cleaning tablets, because no one likes opening the dishwasher and finding white crusty deposits on their "clean" dishes.

    17. An immunity-boosting allergy supplement so your dog can find relief from itchy hotspots. These soft chews deliver a dose of probiotics and other nutrients to improve immune function, aide digestion, promote healthy skin, and add shine to a dog's coat.

    18. A magnetic glasses holder from Shark Tank that attaches to your shirt, because they'll solve almost all your spectacle-related struggles. No more misplacing your glasses, scratching them when you put them in your purse, or dropping them because they're too loose to sit on your head.

    19. A pet hair remover for anyone who's 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!!

    20. A beeswax wood polisher to revive your dinged and dented cabinets and table. This is a heck of a lot cheaper than actually replacing them, and using it on a regular basis can actually help keep the wood hydrated so it lasts longer.

    21. A window insulator kit for keeping you warm *and* saving you money on your heating bills. The clear film shrinks to create an airtight lining to prevent drafts and heat loss.

    22. A pack of stain-removing pads that'll tackle the inevitable messes that come with owning a pet. Pee? Check! Poop? Check! Vomit? Check! (You can even use them to clean up your wine spills.)

    23. A hair catcher from Shark Tank if your drain is constantly getting clogged due to the ungodly amount of hair you shed.

    24. Or a FlexiSnake that'll catch globs of hair in your drains if you forgot to put down a drain protector. It's collapsible and covered with 4,000 tiny hooks that snag strands that have collected in your plumbing.

    25. A plug-in dimmer switch so you can lower the lights and prepare your body for sleep or just create a cozy ambiance in your bedroom.

    26. A pack of cream-scented squishies that'll keep your hands and nose happy.

    27. A pair of noise-cancelling Vibes earplugs to dull the sound around you without compromising clarity.

    28. A Souper Cube, a silicone freezing tray for storing perfectly portioned meals. Prep a recipe ahead of time and freeze them in these trays so you can quickly grab them as needed and defrost them for an easy meal.

    29. The Big Activity Book For Anxious People, because sometimes a good laugh is enough to distract you from your anxieties. This activity book mixes fun and humor with educational tips for coping with your anxiety so you feel a little less alone about your worries.
