    1. A powerful benzoyl peroxide body wash to tackle buttne, backne, and cystic breakouts. Benzoyl peroxide is an antimicrobial agent that targets the bacteria on your skin that causes acne and also helps clear out your pores.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Hey, I'm a 60+ guy who is still prone to acne on my back and shoulders. My doctor recommended I use benzoyl peroxide to treat it, so I went to Amazon and did a little research. I came across this product and thought it looked like exactly what I needed. And boy was I ever right! I use it every day and in just a few days I started seeing a big improvement. When I returned to my doctor a few weeks later she was also very impressed. So now it's part of my daily routine and I couldn't be more pleased. I give Doctor Song Benzoyl Peroxide 10% Acne Treatment a 5-star rating only because I can't give it 10 stars!" —Terry P

    2. A set of silicone ear hooks because they're total game changers. Tired of your glasses constantly sliding down your nose, especially if you're wearing a mask? Me too! These grips work with both glasses and sunglasses, ensuring your spectacles are firmly on your face.

    Promising review: "These little things are great! I wear dollar store readers and they were forever slipping down my nose. Theses are comfortable to wear. Really give it 10 stars!" —Lisa Ellis

    Promising review: "These pillows so far exceeded my expectations that I've been recommending them to EVERYONE. I know of at least six people who have bought them on my recommendation and absolutely loved them. These are truly amazing — and the fact that you can remove the 'fluff' as needed to make them perfect for you is fantastic. If I could give these more than five stars I would — I've stopped waking up with a sore neck and a headache, and it's awesome." —Molly

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in three sizes).

    4. A compact under-desk bike so you can spin while building spreadsheets, answering emails, and even taking conference calls. It offers different resistance levels and is a great way to get in a workout during your regular 9–5.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    It works with desks as low as 27 inches. If you're tall or you have long legs, you can still use it while working from the couch.

    Promising review: "I would give it 6 stars if I could! This unit is very well made and totally quiet! And I love the remote display. I pedal in my socks as it is easier to find the pedal straps in socked feet and to keep the balls of your feet centered on the pedals. I can feel right away that the blood in my legs is moving and my muscles are working. I'm hoping the exercise will help with my sciatica pain in my butt and legs, which started a year ago with me taking a job where I sit ALL day long. It is comfortable to use and it feels great to be working my lower body! Excellent purchase!" —John S. Fiorino

    Get it from Amazon for $189.

    5. A pair of wireless Bluetooth earbuds that'll put your brand name headphones to shame. Reviewers say the sound quality is surprisingly good given the earbuds' under-$25 price tag. And the battery life is equally amazing — listen for over 6 hours on a single charge (and get up to 30 hours of enjoyment with the charging case).

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I would give these 10 stars if I could. I have been trying many different brands of ear buds with little satisfaction. I received these and the minute I turned them on, I was hooked. I love the many different sizes of ear caps. I have very small ears and the smallest size fits perfectly. The sounds is also fantastic; I have a very loud, obnoxious coworker and when I'm wearing the ear buds, it's like she isn't even there. I love that they are wireless and begin to pair with my phone as soon as I take them out of the base. Also the confirmation that both sides have been connected leaves out any doubt. Phone calls are easy to answer and very clear. The carrying case is very durable and the small size makes it easy to slip into a bag or pocket for on the go. I have to say again how pleased I am with the different sized ear caps...probably my favorite feature. They don't fall out of my ears and I don't have to shove them in and hurt my ear." —Thomas R Partsch Jr.

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in five colors).

    6. A lash serum if you want the look of lash extensions without the triple digit price tag. This miracle in a bottle is stuffed with amino acids, peptides, and vitamins that may make your lashes look longer and thicker.

    Promising review: "This is such an amazing product! I bought it after a friend used it and her eyelashes looked incredible. Let me tell you that I have barely any facial hair and I started using this on both my lashes and eyebrows and man what a difference!!! I love this product! I don’t think I’ll ever stop using it. My lashes are so much longer and my eyebrows are much fuller also. I honestly would give this product 10 stars if I could. Totally worth the price, and the small size lasts for a long time." —Nathalif88

    7. A powerful snail repair cream to brighten dull skin, fade discoloration, add plumpness. Snail mucin extract is a popular ingredient in K-beauty products and is rich in hyaluronic acid (hydrates) and glycolic acid (stimulates collagen production).

    Promising review: "This moisturizer is great! I have sensitive skin, so I'm picky about what I'll put on it. I ordered this and got it quickly and it was packaged well. I've been using it for about two weeks now and I've seen improvement in the overall look of my skin; it has lightened my red scars and even seems as though the pores and pockmarks are getting smaller. I really like this stuff and I'll continue to order it! Great product!! I'd give it 10 stars if I could!" —KimberM

    9. A wire-free and moisture-wicking V-neck sports bra for maximum support, style, and comfort. It has a chic crisscross detail in the back so you can totally wear it to brunch after your gym workout.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is absolutely the most comfortable sports bra I have ever owned! It’s absolutely perfect! The material is extremely soft and light weight; it literally feels as if I have nothing on, but it provides maximum support. It's very slightly padded, which I appreciated as well. I will definitely be buying more of these in the future. I wish I could give this 10 stars!" —BarbieLee

Best potato chunks ever...soft on the inside, perfectly crispy on outside. Use the rack for skewers, meatballs, etc. It's easy to clean...if I make something crispy or drippy I put soap and water in and let sit overnight. Wipes clean. You need this!!" —Kris

    Exercising has been a huge boost to my mental health during quarantine, but the DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) man — the DOMS hurt like hell!! I'm talking hurts to walk, hurts to lower myself and sit, hurts to stand up, hurts to lift things heavier than a stuffed animal, hurts to exist. I learned early on that this little gadget was suuuuuuuuper helpful in reducing my discomfort and loosening my tight, angry muscles. While jackhammering my calves and thighs is not an incredibly fun experience (TBH it hurts especially when I'm massaging already sore muscles) but I know the next day I'll wake up with significantly less pain.

    Promising review: "Would give this 10 stars if I could. I am a nurse and am on my feet all day/lifting patients and when I get home my back and quads are always super tight and spasming. Using this for just 5–10 mins after work has been a lifesaver; I immediately notice a huge difference in the level of tightness. Also have been using before workouts to help warm up my muscles and after workouts to help with tightness and I notice I am much less sore the next day. I’ve used the Hypervolt before and I find it can be a little too aggressive for my muscles and it causes rebound tightness, which I have yet to get the with this. It’s also super compact and easy to travel with!" —Jared Cooper

    Get it from Amazon for $199.99+ (also available in red).

    13. A volcanic stone face roller to remove the oil and shine from your face. And unlike oil-blotting sheets, the ball can be popped out and washed so you can use this over and over and over again.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Works so well! It’s easy to use, and very compact so it’s easy to carry. I wear a mask 12 hours a day at work and my face is always so greasy. This took it all away! I would give it 6 stars if I could. ☺️" —Alecia

    Get it from Amazon for $9.98.

    14. A lightweight steam mop because you think your floors are clean but are they really? This stylish and easy-to-maneuver steamer will replace the chunky bucket and raggedy mop you're currently using and even has a carpet attachment so you can steam set-in stains.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this steam mop after seeing a lot of people on social media rave about it — it did NOT disappoint! It is so incredibly easy to assemble and use! We have dark wood floors that hide messes pretty well, which you'd think would be great, but it also leaves you guessing how clean it really is. We have a toddler that is running and rolling around all over the place so it was so important to me to feel confident in the cleanliness of our floors throughout the house. After the first use I was floored (pun intended) at how much dirt it picked up! I was able to do the entire first floor in less than 10 minutes and the state of the microfiber cloth afterwards was proof enough that even though the floors looked clean, they definitely were not! I love that you don't need to wait for the floors to dry after washing because all it uses is steam so they aren't wet afterwards! I would give this mop 10 stars if I could!" —Sarah Sattin

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99.

    15. A pair of oversized sunglasses for folks who are notoriously bad at not losing and/or not breaking their sunglasses. These stylish yet durable shades are a total steal and look like they could easily cost 10x their price.

    16. A La-Roche Posay retinol serum so you can reap the skin-smoothing and tone-evening powers of retinol. Reviewers with sensitive skin say it isn't irritating (but you should still start off slow to gauge your tolerance).

    Promising review: "I would give this product 10 stars if I could. I have been using the LaRoche-Posay Effaclar line of products for six months now. At around month four I decided to add in this Retinol product and it took my skin to the next level! I have been documenting my journey for six months. I went from horrible, bumpy, acne prone, uneven skin to skin I feel comfortable in without makeup! I have never had this clear of skin, even when I was taking acne meds! I have also noticed a significant reduction in pore size and fine lines-I am very happy with this product and all of the LaRoche-Posay products. Amazing!" —Cassandra Krause

    amazon.com

    Promising review: " I have both the cleanser and conditioner of Leather Honey and I. Am. In. Love! Following the directions has gotten 10-year-old stains out of a leather chair and slowly but surely the conditioner is bringing the leather back to life. I was actually intending to donate both a love seat and chair with ottoman but not now. I was really skeptical because of the well-known brands I had tried in the past but this stuff is a miracle worker. It's taking time because it's been such long ago stains but my patience is paying off. It was recommended to me by a guy that sells only leather furniture so that's why I took the plunge. It's also not as expensive as some of the ones out in the garage. Wish I could give it 10 stars. I rarely write reviews but this one really deserved a good one." —A. Eley

The different scenarios allow for a game that you could LITERALLY play HUNDREDS of times without ever playing the same game twice.
