    28 Products That Aren't Just One-Hit Wonders

    They're just as good on the 10th use as the first one.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A Revlon hot air brush to help you go from wet, tangled, frizzy hair to a sleek and shiny blowout in minutes. Every day is about to become a good hair day.

    amazon.com

    The brush has special vents that allow air to flow so hair dries faster. Plus, it's quicker than using a dryer and then a flat iron or curling iron, which equals less heat damage.

    Promising review: "This is my first-ever Amazon review. This styling tool is amazing. I am 54 and for the first time in my entire life, I'm happy with my hair. Every day is now a good hair day. I have very thick hair, medium length with layers, which has begun to show frizz from age and from coloring/highlighting, and it only takes me 10 minutes to get a sleek, beautiful, salon-quality blowout with this. I find myself repeatedly going into the bathroom to admire my hair from all angles. For the first time in my life I am washing my hair every other day instead of daily, since I want to minimize the heat damage and also the style lasts into the second day. The dryer does get quite hot, but so far I have only used the low setting to style my hair, then I follow it up with the cool setting for a final brush-through. I can't be without this tool ever again, period." —WhatsGnuPussycat

    Get it from Amazon for $41.99 (available in four colors).

    2. A memory foam seat cushion that'll have you sighing in relief every time you sit on it. Say hello to bum support and goodbye to painful pressure on your tailbone and lower back pain.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have been using the seat pillow for two weeks now and it has done what it advertises. It has reduced pain, held up up well, and maintained its shape. Given I am not sitting on it all day, which may impact the wear and tear, it still has provided an increase in support and comfort, and has help reduce my dull sciatica pain when having to sit for extended periods of time." —Icarus Rising

    Get it from Amazon for $32.95 (available in five colors).

    3. A dip powder kit because you'll save yourself a lot of money in the long run by perfecting your at-home manicure. The powder dries in just 30 minutes, and reviewers say the color stays chip free for weeks — which is great but also a bummer because it's so easy to use that you'll wish you could do it all over again.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this product! I have used it three times already and every time it turns out great. Super easy to use also! The dip lasts two to three weeks, which is great." —christina benvenuto

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99+ (available in two styles).

    4. A purring cat toy that plays calming, comforting sounds if your kitty suffers from anxiety. Your stressed feline will enjoy the sensation of curling up to another purring "cat" and you'll enjoy not being woken up three nights in a row by a crying cat.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "My kitten that had feline leukemia loved this so much. Every time I started the purr he ran to me and made biscuits on me and nursed on the fur. It was precious moments I will never forget. This gave him comfort and connection since he had to be separate from all the other cats." —christian ellsworth

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    5. A Beauty Bakerie eyeliner for delivering long-lasting smudge-proof eyeliner looks every time you use it.

    Beauty Bakerie

    Beauty Bakerie is a Black-owned cruelty-free cosmetics company founded by Cashmere Nicole.

    Promising review: "Tried this eyeliner out for the first time last year. Ran out and then went to Sephora to get something similar and NOTHING COMPARES. Purchased this one again and even though the one I have at home is still fresh, I'm purchasing another one just so I have a backup whenever I run out again!" —Cici

    Get it from Beauty Bakerie for $18.

    6. A 15-pound weighted blanket so you can enjoy night after night of good sleep. It's designed to help reduce your anxiety by using deep touch pressure therapy, which can trigger a release of serotonin (similar to a hug).

    Promising review: "We have two of these. Initially I thought we'd use them on the couch but they're too heavy to move around with. We moved them to the bed and it's a dream! When I sleep with this at night, almost every time, I wake up in the same position I fell asleep in...now that's good rest!" —SupKarma

    Get it from Amazon for $49.90 (available in 11 weights and 15 colors).

    7. A streak-free anti-fog spray to do the important task of keeping your glasses clear while you're wearing your mask. It's also great for spritzing on your mirrors, goggles, and even your windshield.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this product because wearing a face mask makes my glasses fog, even with the metal strip to form around the bridge of my nose. It works all day with only one application, unless I have been doing a lot of activity, then I might have to re-apply. Just spray it on the clean lenses of your glasses then wipe dry with a clean dry lintless cloth, as simple as that. I was so impressed that I gave my second bottle to my team members for them to use. Delivery was fast. I highly recommend this product from this company. I would not hesitate to buy this again when I need more in the future." —Tonya Crippen

    Get it from Amazon for $10.55.

    8. A pair of blue-light-blocking glasses that'll help reduce eye strain after hours of staring at your computer, phone, and TV screens. Psst! And you can wear them with your contacts.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "First thing is that I get complimented on these every time I wear them because they are so cute. I bought them because I get bad headaches. Someone recommended them to help ease whatever pain I got from the large amount of time I spend on my computer as a student. I have seen a noticeable difference in the intensity and frequency of these headaches. I try to wear them if I'm going to be spending a lot of time on the computer or if I start getting a headache and it has been working so well for me. I absolutely recommend if you are having similar issues." —miss. literaura

    Get them from Amazon for $11.04+ (available in 10 colors and as a multi-pack).

    9. A grooming glove if you love your pupperino but hate that they've coated your home in a fine layer of shed fur. Each time you use it, you'll be shocked by the slightly obscene amount of hair it picks up. Plus, it's a fantastic alternative if your pooch goes running at the sight of a brush.

    AnaMaria Glavan / BuzzFeed

    My colleague AnaMaria Glavan swears by this thing. In her own words:

    "The glove is super comfortable and using it couldn’t be more foolproof: just put it on and run your hands through your pet’s fur. That’s it! The silicone grooves pick up so much fur with ease. Like, my dog looks close to hairless. HOW is he shedding so much!?!? After a few runs, I found that I would have to remove fur from the glove before continuing (you can pick up the fur with your other hand or run the glove under some water — either works) but it’s no biggie. The silicone actually makes it really easy to keep this clean. We got Rockie when he was 5 and he’d been riddled with skin issues and allergies, so I was pretty nervous to use anything that could potentially aggravate his conditions. However! Not only does this *not* bother his skin, but he…loves this. A lot. He starts snoring after exactly two run-throughs on his back. Also, his coat looks SO shiny after each use! TL;DR: this is one of those inexpensive add-ons that any pet owner should have on hand."

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (also available in left-hand version).

    10. A Squatty Potty, because a bout of constipation shouldn't leave you down in the ~dumps~. This'll get you in and out of the bathroom in record time every time by moving your body into a squatting position, which opens your anal canal and makes it easier for things to exit.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Cannot recommend this enough. This little shelf has now changed my life. I've been having bowel issues since my teenage years; I wish this came into my life sooner. Every time I step off the toilet now I feel lighter, fresher, and like a new person." —MsNiters

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    11. And a Tushy bidet attachment for pampering your patootie. Not only will it help you use less TP, but it also just leaves you feeling cleaner after you go.

    Tushy

    Use our exclusive promo code BUZZFEED at checkout for 10% off!

    This is the bidet I use and 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...interesting...to say the least but you definitely get used to it. In fact, I recently moved apartments and it's taken me awhile to hook up the bidet (I'm a procrastinator, OK?!). Oh how I've missed my bidet during this time (and I'm sure my butt feels the same way). But seriously, I cannot stress how life-changing getting a bidet is. If my bidet ever goes kaput, I'm going to upgrade to the Tushy Spa, which has the added benefit of allowing you to select the temperature of your water.

    Get it from Tushy for $79 (originally $99; available in nine colors).

    12. A sweet pepper chowchow from Wanda's Cooking so you can take your cooking to the next level. Insert Emeril Lagasse's "Bam!" Treat yourself to a jar of this deliciously sweet and tangy blend of sweet peppers, vinegar, and onion and you'll never eat another boring meal.

    Wanda's Cooking is a Black-owned business helmed by chef Wanda Blake.

    Get it from Wanda's Cooking for $10 (also available in three other styles).

    13. An EveryPlate subscription to make cooking dinner fun, exciting, and easy. No more sad bowls of ramen! We're talking new Instagram-worthy meals each week that are as affordable as they are delicious.

    @everyplate / Via instagram.com, @everyplate / Via instagram.com

    14. A microwave pasta cooker that'll get a lot of use in your kitchen if you're a fan of soft, cheesy, noodly carbs on demand but don't want the hassle of boiling water, cleaning a giant pot, and struggling to strain your noods without spilling hot water everywhere.

    youtube.com

    Read our review of the Fasta Pasta Microwave Cooker (#2 on the list)!

    Promising review: "I do fettuccine, which is nine minutes in my microwave. Break it in half, fill up container, put in the water, microwave for nine minutes, and walk away. No waiting for pot to boil, fear of spillage, cats playing with the boiling water, no nada. Bonus: the top is a strainer. Nine minutes later, it's perfect every time (once you figure out the exact number with your microwave). I am not a cook, but I can make this perfect every time. One of those 'Dang, why didn't I think of that?' inventions." —Rob

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    15. A set of produce storage containers if you're tired of your fruits and veggies going bad approximately two seconds after you buy them. Your meals will taste better because you're cooking with produce that's still at peak freshness instead of soggy and overripe.

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    Read my colleague's in-depth review of the Rubbermaid FreshWorks storage containers to see why she loves them.

    Promising review: "I love these containers. They keep produce super fresh. Every time I test the original container versus this container, these win by a long shot. I own two and want to buy more!" —Danielle

    Get a four-piece set from Amazon for $31.31.

    16. The ~Guac-Lock~ because you love guac but know that you won't finish the whole avocado by yourself. This container pushes out the air that causes your avos to oxidize so you can enjoy guac and mashed avocados for toast for days without browning.

    youtube.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Wow. I’ve used this five times at this point and it has kept the guac fresh every time! They key is making sure you don’t have any air bubbles when you press the guac to lock it. Fantastic product, also holds a lot of guac." —DVSeattle

    Get it on Amazon for $19.73.

    17. A pack of Copper Cow pour over Vietnamese coffee for making your morning caffeine infusion extremely luxurious. Each cup will taste as delicious and they'll be gone before you know it.

    Copper Cow

    Copper Cow is an LA-based woman-founded, POC-owned company created by Debbie Wei Mullin.

    Promising review: "A really nice, smooth flavor especially coupled with the milk and sugar packet that is provided. Every cup had me coming back for more and is definitely a must have for any coffee addict." —Anya V.

    Get a five-pack (five coffees and five creamers) from Copper Cow for $15.

    18. A heart-shaped mini waffle maker so you can whip up fluffy waffles day after day...after day. This lil' gadget weighs less than a pound, heats up in minutes, and also works with chaffles (low-carb cheese and egg waffles), paninis, hash browns, and even biscuit pizzas.

    The pink waffle maker
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this thing more than my regular-sized waffle maker!! It makes waffles that are a tad smaller than Eggo waffles. They are a perfect size. My kids love that I am willing to make waffles in it on weekdays instead of just on weekends with my other one. So easy to use...no clean up is necessary. The waffles come out perfectly every time, no spray needed! Almost thinking I should get another one...hmmmm. You will not be sorry with this little guy; it's a keeper!" —Thefabfive

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in 14 styles).

    Check out my colleague's review of the regular-shaped mini waffle maker (#2), which turned her into a breakfast person.

    19. A pack of reusable beeswax wraps to replace the not-so-eco-friendly plastic wrap you used to use. These organic cotton wraps are infused with beeswax, jojoba oil, and tree resin, and will mold around foods and containers with the heat from your hands. Wash them when they get dirty, and they'll last you a year before you can toss 'em in the compost bin.

    Bee's Wrap is a woman-owned business based in Middlebury, Vermont. It's been cranking out the most fantastic eco-friendly and aesthetically pleasing plastic wrap alternatives since 2012.

    Promising review: "Bought these on a blogger recommendation for covering dough in a bowl while bread making, which worked great, but let me tell you: they are my go-to for covering dishes in the fridge. They seal great. No odor escapes. I have reused multiple times with a lot of life still left in them. Love!!" —Cassie McCord

    Get a set of three (one small, one medium, and one large wrap) from Amazon for $18 from Amazon

    20. A Wobble Wag Giggle ball with an internal noisemaker and six pockets that'll become your dog's fave toy over all others. It's made to engage your pet's natural curiosity and will have them rolling, fetching, and shaking it until they're panting.

    Promising review: "This is the second time I’ve purchased this ball. The first one was for our pitbull who isn’t with us anymore. She loved it! The new one is for our chocolate lab puppy who is four months old. She loves it too!!! When it was delivered, anytime I moved the box we could hear the wa wa noises it makes. Drove our dog nuts trying to find out what it was. My old pitbull and my new puppy played/play with this ball every single day. My lab pup is excited already and this ball just gets her even more excited. It’s funny to watch." —Angela Oneal

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    21. An interactive cat toy if you want to entertain the world's pickiest cat. Chances are you've never had to repurchase a toy because your cat has looked at every toy you've ever bought, sniffed it, and then walked away. Well, this'll be the first toy they'll play with until they wear it out.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I rescued an older cat from the shelter and she has never been interested in toys — not catnip mice, not kickers, not jingle balls, and only very rarely a laser pointer, which she's over in five minutes. This one had her engaged and actually playing like a kitten, and every time I bring it out she perks up. I think it is mainly the fact that it bounces unpredictably and is above her head like a bird or a butterfly would be. When I fostered kittens, this was their favorite toy as well, and they would leave whatever they were doing to play with this toy. This is a fun and enriching way to play with cats who might be tired of floor-level play." —LeftyLeBrandt

    Get it from Amazon for $2.09.

    22. A tub of brightening, firming, and rejuvenating eye cream because it can help reduce the appearance of your hereditary dark circles (thnx a lot, Mom!) and make it look like you got a full eight hours of sleep.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is my third time purchasing this product. I use is every day and night. It is just the right amount of moisture for my eye area. Not too heavy, not too light. And it doesn’t have a weird smell, which is great. I love it!" —Kelly A.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    23. The Wand, a mini handheld filter for helping 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.

    Promising review: "These sticks are the best! I use them every time I drink wine. It helps with headaches and with stuffiness. It has changed my way of drinking wine. I highly recommend these!" —Windsor Johnson

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $11.99.

    24. An in-shower collagen-coating hair treatment so your hair dries soft, smooth, and frizz-free.

    Bek O'Connell / BuzzFeed, Bek O'Connell/BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "So I have naturally dark hair that I have bleached almost white, so my hair is pretty coarse and dry. After first use (and my usual blow dry and straighten) I noticed my hair was much softer and less bristly. I haven’t felt my hair be so soft in a very long time. Not just smooth, but SOFT. I’ve continued to use it every time I wash my hair (about twice a week) in combination with blow drying and straightening, and I love it. Even when I don’t blow dry and straighten, I feel like my hair looks better and feels better (but the results are most noticeable when I do my whole routine)." —Alexa DeFrancesco

    Get it from Amazon for $7.

    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."

    25. A year-round paw protection cream to guard against ice and salt in the winter and scorching hot sidewalks and sand in the summer. It's made with vitamin E to keep the paw pads moisturized, and some reviewers use it on their pup's dry snout.

    Promising review: "My golden retriever thanks me every time I put it on his paws. It must feel good going on. Works as promised. No more limping through the ice and salt." —Nancy Curtin

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99.

    26. A broom for pet hair that'll loosen the fur 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.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Between me, my girlfriend, our cat, and our two dogs, the carpet in our apartment was always clogging up our vacuum cleaner. We'd literally have to stop halfway through vacuuming with a pair of scissors to cut away hair that had wrapped around the roller brush. I was looking through BuzzFeed and saw this thing and was like, WOAH I need it! After using it one time, I brought up a pile of hair the size of a football! Until the day we moved, I used this thing every time I planned to vacuum, and it made it so much easier to get through a cleaning day. Definitely recommend this!" —Magesdoitbest

    Get it from Amazon for $12.98.

    Check out my colleague's FURemover Evriholder broom review for more deets and some very satisfying photos of the globs of hair she removed from her carpet.

    27. A roll-on migraine stick if you're looking to ease a mind-numbing headache. Its soothing mixture of peppermint, spearmint, lavender, and coconut oil may help you find some sweet, sweet relief.

    Yi Yang / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "My wife has chronic migraines; they happen nearly every day. This migraine headache stick roll-on is the first thing she grabs when her migraines strike. She has found it to be one of the most effective relievers she has and relies on it almost daily. I am reordering now because she literally doesn't want to be without it. Only this time I'm purchasing two of them so that she can have one at home and one in her purse. If you have headaches and need relief, you should give it a try. You won't know if it works unless you try it." —Denny L.

    My colleague tested and loved this. Read her full review on the Migrastil Migraine Stick here to learn more.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    28. An eco-friendly hard water stain-remover because it removes soap scum and residue in your shower without fail. It's biodegradable so the scent won't singe your nose hairs and make you gag, plus it's safe enough to use on just about anything — including shower glass, tile, granite, stainless-steel, marble, brass, and porcelain.

    Promising review: "This is the second time I am ordering this item. It is truly one that can’t be replicated. My modern bathroom glass shower is spotless every time I use this liquid to wipe it clean. I read further review that it cleans grout dirt so I have bought more to try!" —M. Nalchajyan
