    32 Products So Effective You'll Actually Use Them Every Single Day

    Finds you won't regret!

    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 heated massager so you can relax on the couch while it soothes your knots and tense spots. It's designed for your back and neck, but you can also use it on your thighs, hamstrings, and feet.

    amazon.com

    (Just please don't use it literally nonstop for three days or overnight or anything; you wouldn't want it to overheat!) It comes with two power cords, one that plugs into a regular wall and another that plugs into your car, making it easy to use on your commutes, too.

    Promising review: "I purchased my first Zyllion on 5/24/2014. My little friend died tonight, 10/13/2018. This wonderful little gadget came to my aid multiple times a day, and never complained. I sat on it, dropped it, lay across it — virtually lived on that thing. It's been my go-to pal when I was sore from surgery, from work, from a long day in the yard. I have severe arthritis, bursitis, plantar fasciitis, frozen shoulder, joint pain, tight calves, and a replaced hip and shoulder. This modest little piece of equipment is phenomenal for loosening tight muscles and relieving pain. These guys are top notch, reliable little beasts." —white noise machine

    Get it on Amazon for $54.95.

    2. Some CeraVe moisturizing cream, which gently moisturizes for 24 hours and is especially good for dry, sensitive skin.

    amazon.com

    While it's too heavy to use on your face if you have oily skin (if you do, I stan their lightweight moisturizers), it's still the best body lotion I've ever used, because it's non-irritating and actually keeps my hands and elbows from cracking from dryness in the winter.

    Promising review: "If you are doubting this product, stop what you are doing and buy it right now. It WILL change your life. I had SEVERE eczema on my face and it was incredibly painful: I had red, inflamed, itchy, flaky, and disgusting skin. I tried everything, from organic to high-priced products, and nothing worked until this. Well, it is a miracle product. My face feels amazing. I use it twice daily, and my eczema is gone. It has also diminished my acne breakouts by 98%." —Susana Rodriguez

    Get a 19 oz tub on Amazon for $16.08.

    3. A Pet House candle you'll burn every day because it really does eradicate any lingering odors around the house, whether they're from your beloved kitty or pup *or* from cooking yesterday's delicious dinner. Several of us here at BuzzFeed use them all the time and know they actually work!

    amazon.com

    They're made from cleaner-burning soy wax, come in 21 scents that smell just like normal candles, and will burn for up to 60 hours.

    Promising review: "I have multiple dogs in the house and am always concerned that it smells like that to visitors. I have used other candles and melts that add a pleasant smell to the underlying odor, but these candles do better. I can leave the house and return hours later and when I first open the door, I don't smell dog. We recently had a house full of people (many of them pet parents) over for Christmas dinner and it was actually commented, 'Your house smells really nice. How do you keep the dog smell out?' I laughed and told them I was just wondering if the candles were working." —LLL Texas

    Get them on Amazon for $21.95.

    4. A silicone scalp massager and shampoo brush — besides gently deep cleaning and exfoliating your skin with way less effort than it would take using just your fingers, it also just feels really damn good.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    One reviewer also mentions that it's awesome for removing excess hair dye from their scalp with very little effort.

    Promising review: "I cannot explain how good this feels when you're using it! It relaxes you and for sure is better than just using your fingertips to shampoo your hair. It actually goes down to the roots and makes sure that it gets into all the spots it can to clean your hair. My hair has never felt smoother since I started using this product." —Romie Patel

    Get it on Amazon for $7.98.

    5. A no-scrub cleaning spray so satisfying you'll want to use it all the time, even though your bathroom won't get dirty again quickly enough.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Have you ever seen the movie The Santa Clause? There's a scene where Tim Allen's character shaves away his white beard and then ~WHOOSH!~ it reappears instantaneously. That's basically my bathtub and soap scum. I've tried many products to keep it at bay, but this is the only one that has ever really worked. Not only does it have a cute dog on the packaging, it also allows me to (easily!) wipe away dastardly soap scum without having to use a lot of muscle! Which is great, because I don't exactly have a lot of muscle to use." —Mallory McInnis

    Get it from Amazon for $18.88.

    6. The Diamond Dazzle Stick, which will make your diamond, sapphire, emerald, and other jewelry so irresistibly sparkly and clean you'll find yourself reaching for it the moment your stone is even the tiniest bit smeared.

    amazon.com

    It also gives gold jewelry a ~lustrous shine~.

    Promising review: "I worked several years in a fine jewelry store that sold this product. We used the Dazzle Stick from time to time to add a quick shine to merchandise that was just tried on and on days our jeweler was not there to professionally clean items. I was always impressed with the instant shine the diamond stick provided. The brush tip is very helpful for getting under the stones and in the setting where gunk builds up reducing that brilliant shine. I recently got engaged and immediately purchased a diamond dazzle stick of my own. It's the perfect way to quickly give my ring some shine before leaving the house. You simply brush, rinse, dry and go." —Amazon Customer

    Get it on Amazon for $7.45.

    7. The Sock Dock because if you do use it daily, you will *never* see a sock separated from its matching mate *ever* again. Plus you'll be able to fold all your socks in basically no time at all.

    amazon.com

    You simply slip each day's pair of dirty socks through its own secure slot in the cord, then when it's full, throw the entire thing in the wash as normal. When it comes out of the dryer, every sock will be clean but also secure in its spot!

    Promising review: "I love this product! This saves me so much time. Instead of having one for dirty socks and one for clean as they suggested, I hung one by our dirty clothes hamper, and one by the kids'. Once it is full, it goes in the wash. It takes me two seconds to fold the clean socks. No more hunting for a match every morning!" —amanda courneya

    Get a two-pack on Amazon for $16 (each one holds nine pairs; three colors available).

    8. Some produce savers that really will keep everything day-one fresh for nearly two full weeks. You'll actually have enough time to eat of your berries, spinach, lettuce, bell peppers, and other fruit and veggies before it all goes bad!

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    I've been using these pretty much constantly for an entire year now — except for when they're in the dishwasher — and I can't even begin to guess how much money they've saved and food waste they've prevented!

    Promising review: "Oh-my-gosh, they work! I went on a ten-day trip to visit my mom and left my husband home with asparagus, strawberries, and spinach in the containers. He ate some of all of them, but there was plenty left when I got back and they were in perfect condition! I couldn’t believe it! These will save us a lot of money not throwing away food because we couldn’t get through it fast enough. (We shop at Costco and get large containers of produce.) These are TOTALLY worth getting and I will be getting a few more sizes. Excellent product!!!" —Elizabeth Walter

    Get a three-pack on Amazon for $27.52 (one 6.3 cup container and two 17.3 cup containers).

    9. And different produce savers designed specifically to keep countertop fruits (like bananas, tomatoes, avocados, and apples) fresher much longer than if they simply sat in a fruit bowl.

    Rubbermaid / Via Bed Bath & Beyond

    Now, I haven't gotten my hands on these to test them out yet, but I promise I will! Based on the early reviews, it seems like they're pretty darn good...

    Promising review: "As lovely as it looks, the day of the fruit bowl is over. With stainless steel kitchens this not only looks great but the savings of fresher longer makes perfect sense. I bought one and found it works so well and shows off produce so clearly and beautifully that I went back and bought three more." —LazyDaisy

    Get them from Bed Bath & Beyond: the banana size for $24.99, the medium tomato size for $16.99, and a set of four of the smallest tomato size for $19.99. Or get one medium tomato size on Amazon for $34.99.

    10. The Satisfyer Pro 2, which just might threaten to keep you in bed all day with its eleven adjustable (but quiet!) settings that are basically guaranteed to give you a mind-blowing orgasm.

    amazon.com

    It has a gentle sucking pressure vacuum covered in soft silicone that you hold over your clitoris. Plus it's waterproof and easy to clean (especially with an antibacterial toy cleaner).

    Promising review: "Oh...my...god. How does one even describe in words? First thought: it feels like someone is very quickly playing the drums on the head of my clit. But, you know how often you can’t stimulate the very tip cause it’s too much sensation? Well, this toy fits around it in such a way that, it reached THAT spot, but wasn’t overwhelming. And the orgasm? Haaaaa! I own a Hitachi which I’ve sworn by for years, so I was skeptical. But literally, it was like the peak point of orgasm for a whole minute :O. I actually started yelling really loudly, like how one might while pushing during labor. And I squirted a bit, which I haven’t done in years. Worth more than what I paid for it! —Kaitlyn Ostrander

    Get it on Amazon for $33.74.

    11. A pair of Keepons to slide on the ends of your glasses so they finally stop that annoying habit of slipping down your nose multiple times every hour.

    amazon.com

    Instead, they'll actually stay put and in-place — fairly discreetly, too.

    Promising review: "I knew the best way to test these out would be to wear them to work (at a BBQ restaurant) where I'm constantly moving up and down and getting a little sweaty. My glasses never moved! It was amazing, these are a must buy! They're very discrete. From the side view you can't even tell they're there at all! It takes a few seconds to adjust when you put your glasses on once these are on the glasses but when you get them where you like it, your glasses won't move until you take them off."—Chadbdot

    Get them on Amazon: 10 pairs in black for $4.79 or 20 pairs for $8.29; or 20 pairs in white / translucent for $6.89 (they do have multiple styles and sizes, depending on the style of your glasses; to figure out your size, consult the second image in any of their product listings).

    12. A knife sharpener so simple and effective that you won't want to put it away until every single blade in your drawer is as fiercely honed as when you very first bought it. Especially once you realize it's 1000 times easier to slice and dice when each knife's at the peak of its power.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I use this on my high-end German knife and it performs as well as any expensive sharpener. If your "good" knife requires some fancy sharpener, perhaps the knife is the problem. I use this on three large kitchen knives as well as paring knives, and it keeps them all in tip-top shape. I do a lot of chopping, so having every knife tomato-ready is great. If you want an expensive sharpener, be my guest; for me, I'd prefer to spend my time USING sharp knives, rather than adding undetectable macho-sharpness I don't need. Find a couple of good videos before you start — the instructions are ok, but don't actual demonstrate all the features!" —Pinchas

    Elizabeth, one of our editors, owns one of these and loves it — you can read her full knife sharpener review for more!

    Get it on Amazon for $5.99.

    13. An incredibly consistent matte liquid lipstick so you can do all of the things you have to do in your busy day, including basics like, you know, eating, and not have to reapply it once.

    amazon.com

    Well, it may not last through you eat a deliciously greasy burger (because oil's often the fastest way to remove liquid lipstick), but it'll be there for you most other meals! It also contains vitamin E and avocado oil, to help keep your lips hydrated.

    Promising review: "Today is my first day wearing this product and I have to give it a full five stars! I first put it on at 5 a.m. this morning before coming to work and I have yet to reapply seven hours later. I ate breakfast AND lunch with a coffee and two waters today and yes it has faded but BARELY. I have never had a lipstick last as long and beautifully! Will definitely be buying again! The first photo's from this morning at 5 a.m. when I first applied and the second photo's right after I had lunch at noon." —Sara Brasher

    Get it on Amazon for $22 (37 colors).

    14. A weighted blanket — every time you wrap yourself in it, you'll feel gently cuddled, which can help you deeply relax despite the stress of everyday life. Plus many reviewers swear it helps them sleep better each and every night.

    amazon.com

    In general, you want to go for a weight that's about 10% of your body weight plus one.

    Promising review: "Before I received this weighted blanket, according to my Fitbit, I was averaging about 4.5 hours of sleep per night due to pain. My first night with this blanket and I slept over 7 hours!! Same for my second night. This is so comfortable and comforting. I’m recommending this to everyone I know!" —Jamie Eubanks

    Get it on Amazon for $62.90+ (10 weights/sizes available between five and 25 pounds; five colors/styles).

    15. And a cozy U-shaped body pillow that people love for pregnancy but also can be supportive whether you have back pain or just want a consistent cuddle buddy every night.

    amazon.com

    It has a machine-washable 100% cotton cover, so it can wash and dry along with your sheets.

    Promising review: "This pillow saved me! I was not sleeping AT ALL. Tossing, turning couldn't get comfortable. I am not pregnant, I just needed additional support for my back which this provides and has helped ease hip and leg aches. It also keeps me in one spot so I don't wake myself up constantly moving around, but allows me to easily maneuver if I need too and I fall right back to sleep. My dogs love it too. I will often find them snuggled up in the middle of it under the blanket. Have no issue with the fluff. I throw it in the dryer every other time I wash the cover and flip it over often sleeping on both sides." —Karen

    Get it on Amazon for $57.29.

    16. A pill organizer with a small box for each day that's divided into times of day, so you never have to dig past your evening dose to take what you need to at lunchtime.

    amazon.com

    And you can organize everything on the weekend, then simply grab the day's small, portable box, instead of carrying a week's worth of meds around.

    Promising review: "I have had this for a few months now. I don’t think I’ve missed any medicine since I started using it. I am on 10 different meds which I take several times a day. This is perfect. I love that I can put the day in my purse or pocket, and I am set for the day. Mom saw mine and ordered one. Everyone who I’ve shown it to is sold." —Karen R. Starken

    Get it on Amazon for $11.87.

    17. An accupressure wristband that just might help relieve your nausea, whether it's caused by holiday travels (motion sickness, why???), being pregnant, 3D gaming, or something else entirely.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Our readers genuinely swear by these — I first heard about them in reader-recommended pregnancy products, and then again in a comment on an under-$10 post! Here's that comment:

    I can confirm that the Sea Bands work! I get extremely motion sick. So sick that when I went on a cruise two years ago that the prescription patch didn’t even keep me from being ill several times. These bands were the only thing that kept me from being stuck next to a toilet. I use them all the time!" —katiec4a7e4ac80

    Get one on Amazon for $8.54.

    18. The Furminator if you have a dog who constantly sheds and / or seems to be going through an extreme spring molt. This will extract a bunch of hair your doggo might have otherwise left all over your sofa, your clothes, and your bed, and deposit it in the trash in one fell swoop.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Your dog has too much hair, and the Furminator was sent by aliens from the future to help you fix that. Go outside; don't you dare Furminate in your home, unless you're the first person to brush their dog because you want MORE hair in your house. Then get in there. Short, fast strokes are your best bet. Use one hand to hold the skin in place, and the other to run the brush through. Use the handy button on top to clear out the teeth when it gets clogged. Expect to do this about a million times. You're going to wonder how much longer it can possibly go on. But this is the be-all end-all of grooming products for your dog. If you hate having animal hair in your house and use it every week, the Furminator will change your life." —Seth A. Ratner

    Get it on Amazon for $31.94 (four sizes available in either long hair or short hair).

    19. And a patented pet hair–removing roller that you simply brush over any fabric surface to pick up any other residual shedding your furry friend leaves in their wake.

    amazon.com

    Because it doesn't rely on adhesive paper, you only have to buy it once and can use it forever — cleaning the hair off the brush when it gets clogged, of course!

    Promising review: "We live in a household that contains two humans, two dogs, and two cats. It's a real Noah's Ark furnished with a black sectional couch. Our dogs absolutely hate the vacuum. So much so they will attack the cleaner head even before we power it on. This makes the task of cleaning our couch extremely unpleasant and nearly impossible. Thanks to Chom Chom, we no longer have this problem! With a simple, quick, SOUNDLESS sweep, we're able to keep our couch pet-hair-free in blissful peace. This tool does an amazing job picking up pet hair but not so much with crumbs. We were so impressed, we gifted these as Christmas presents for all of our pet-loving friends." —Magpie

    Get one on Amazon for $24.95 (or check out their cute limited edition dog or cat rollers, $27.95 each).

    20. A toilet gel that you can stamp just under the rim to clean the bowl each and every time it's flushed, keeping your commode sparkling clean for up to 20 weeks in a row.

    Amazon, Scrubbing Bubbles / youtube.com

    It'll be working for you constantly, and all you have to do is re-stamp every few weeks or so.

    Promising review: "The gel discs stay on the side of the toilet for quite a long time and do their job, amazingly enough. They do give a clean smell when the toilet is flushed. Nothing overpowering or unpleasant. Just a refreshingly clean smell. Before you place the gel disc in your toilet, flush it and make sure there's no spots on the side that the water misses. Some toilets do this. Put the disc where the water will be running down the inside of the bowl so it can do its magic." —Todd Thorne

    Get a pack that will last up to 50 weeks (that's almost an entire year!) on Amazon for $20.08.

    21. An incredibly sturdy belt made with full-grain leather, aka a thick single piece that won't break, tear, crack, fray, or split, even if you wear it every single day, year in and year out.

    amazon.com

    Seriously, these belts have a 100-year warranty because they mean it. The buckles are easily replaced, too, if you have one you like better.

    Promising review: "I can’t express how happy I am to have found this product. In 2017 alone I went through five belts! From torn belts to broken fasteners, I’ve seen it all. I purchased this belt in Jan 2018, and have thrown everything at it and it hasn’t blinked! I also pull my belt very tight to keep my pants from sagging from lack of a backside, so my belts tend to warp and start to roll a little. Not Hanks, this belt is freaking rock solid as the day I opened the package." —Steven McDowell

    Get it on Amazon for $54.99 (three colors).

    22. A luxuriously soft throw blanket that will definitely spark joy every time you curl up under it to read your library book, watch your favorite movie for the thirty-second time, or flutter your eyes shut for a Sunday afternoon catnap.

    amazon.com

    Of course, it's safe to machine wash and dry.

    Promising review: "If you've ever dreamed of sleeping in the pellets of 50 rabbits but don't want the guilt of all those rabbit lives, this is your blanket. It's light but warm, not too warm, just warm enough. The cats LOOKED at it and ran to the bed. Before I finished laying it out they started climbing on it. Like OKAY guys calm down! And it's huge so you can really bundle yourself up or add an extra person comfortably. This blanket just seems sexy and luxurious. I don't really know. It's magical, and it's changed my quality of life for the better." —Emma Stanley

    Get it on Amazon for $29.99+ (four sizes, 14 colors).

    23. A stainless steel cleaner and polish because all you have to do is spray it on then wipe it off to reveal a sparkling clean, fingerprint-free kitchen, zero real effort required.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Perfect cleaner for my new Whirlpool stainless appliances. It also seems to make it a bit fingerprint-resistant as well. Since I cleaned my fridge down a month ago, I haven't had to do it again yet. I'm sure if I had kids it'd be a little different, but this stuff is where it's at. I've tried cheaper big-box store cleaners and they all take a lot of arm work." —William Blake Fischer

    Get a bottle on Amazon for $16.97.

    24. A bottle of Trader Joe's Everything Bagel Seasoning because it'll instantly add a salty, garlicky, onion-y crunch of flavor to everything you anoint with it, from avocado to popcorn to roast veggies and SO much more.

    amazon.com

    Promising reviews: "Garlicky, salty perfection. So far I've used this on homemade popcorn, roasted broccoli, and fried eggs. All amazing. I've had it less than a week and I've already gone through a quarter of the bottle." —Britta

    Get it from your local Trader Joe's, or if you don't have one nearby, from Amazon for $11.50.

    25. And some Mike's Hot Honey for adding just the right amount of spicy sweetness to pretty much anything you cook or eat — salad dressing, marinades, pizza, peanut butter toast, cheese, and even ice cream can all benefit from it's perfectly hot kick.

    amazon.com

    It's also paleo-friendly and gluten-free.

    Promising review: "I tend to shy away from spicy foods, but I couldn’t resist the opportunity to try a new condiment to liven up snacks and recipes with. I was afraid the spice would be overpowering, but it’s actually quite mellow and smooth; just the right touch of heat. So far, I’ve enjoyed this on fruit salad (banana/strawberry/blueberry) and drizzled on the original Chick-fil-A sandwich....so delicious!" —SleepsInRain

    Get it on Amazon for $21.80.

    This is a tried and true favorite of my colleague Bek, who eats it on all kinds of foods and even puts it in cocktails!

    26. Some fizzing cleaning tablets that loosen seemingly permanent gunk from your coffee/tea mugs and pots so you can keep enjoying your favorite drinks out of your favorite containers they way you did when they were brand new.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mugs — I tried everything. A bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY, without even scrubbing. They look brand new. No weird smell or taste afterward, either. I liked it so much I used it on another HydroFlask I use primarily to hold my Bloody Mary mix in the fridge. I couldn't put anything else in it because it would always taste like spicy tomato juice. Bottle Bright to the rescue! No residual smell or taste anymore. AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING." —Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of 12 tabs on Amazon for $8.

    27. A bottle of Poo Pourri spray — it blocks offensive odors before they even get started, so your bathroom always smells clean no matter what.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "One bathroom in an apartment just isn't enough for two adults with a healthy colon. Enter Poo-Pourri. As this was the first time trying the product, I tried the original. It has an amazing lemon scent, very fresh and not overpowering or synthetic-smelling. With most room sprays, you end up just smelling flowery poo. This masks the smell completely. I can walk in the bathroom 30 seconds after my boyfriend and only smell lemon." —Allison H

    Get it on Amazon: a 4 oz bottle (200 sprays; 16 scents) for $11.52 or an 16 oz refill (800 sprays, five scents) for $23.90.

    28. A set of three incredibly moisturizing lip balms. Because they come in tinted and un-tinted options *and* taste delicious, the moment the flavor fades you'll immediately want to apply more.

    Glossier

    Each one's packed with castor seed oil, beeswax, and rice bran extracts, all of which work together to hydrate lips for hours on end! There are seven different options available: Original (un-tinted + unflavored), Birthday (un-tinted shimmer + Milk Bar Birthday Cake–inspired flavor), Rose (light pink tint + sugary rose flavor), Cherry (sheer red tint), Mint (un-tinted), Coconut (un-tinted), and Mango (coral tint).

    Promising review: "This. Is. The. BEST! In just three days this product turned my chapped lips into soft, healthy lips. My favorite is the coconut, because the texture is different than the others. It smells AMAZING. I'm never using another balm again! I also like the mint (very refreshing) and the rose (soft and not slimy). If there's only one thing you buy from Glossier, make it the coconut Balm Dot Com." —iloveglossier

    Get them from Glossier: choose three flavors for your custom pack for $30 or opt for a single tube for $12.

    29. A stain remover spray — it's so satisfyingly effective against all kinds of food, dirt, oil, and makeup messes that you'll actually look forward to spilling something just so you get to use it.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    I mean, no one really looks forward to cleaning that much but if you must clean, let it be quick, effective, and gratifying!

    Promising review: "It’s a miracle in a bottle. My German Shepherd mix decided to pull a black fountain pen out of my purse and chew it to pieces on my beige carpet while I was sleeping — this cleaner lifted the stain and now it’s like the devastation my dog caused never happened! As soon as I saw it lifting the ink, I got back on Amazon and bought more bottles. I will never let myself run out of this. I use it in my Bissell carpet cleaner for some crazy good cleaning power. I’ve become that weird lady that goes around singing the praises of a cleaning product. No regrets." —L. Logan

    Get a bottle on Amazon for $13.45.

    30. A three-in-one avocado tool that you definitely need if you eat at least one avocado a week — you'll be able to cut it open, pit it, then slice each half into seven perfectly even pieces before you can say "toast".

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I’ve owned mine for over three years now and use it regularly at home. The knife is more than sharp enough to cut an avocado in half quickly and easily but not sharp enough to cut skin. I’ve let my ten-year-old granddaughter use it all the time since she was seven. Pitting couldn't be easier or safer: three slightly rounded, blunted, recessed blades grab the pit, and the finger hole allows you to push it out easily. My blades are still fine after three+ years. Then in one fast easy motion I have seven even slices of avocado ready for my sandwich or salad. I didn’t even need to scrape it out with a spoon." —Tony C

    Get it on Amazon for $9.99.

    31. A gel nail polish + top coat so you can give yourself a salon-quality manicure that absolutely lasts and looks good for over a week, no touch-ups necessary.

    Abby Kass / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "This polish goes on nicely and stays put for a good week. And I don't have to soak my nails in acetone to get off, this comes off with regular nail polish remover. Overall, I save a lot of money doing my own nails and they still look great since the polish is so high quality. Honestly, I don't think I can tell the difference anymore — this gives a professional manicure!" —skatz

    Get some on Amazon: a bottle of the top coat for $8.62, five red color variations for $7.49+ each, two purple color variations for $8.90+ each, and a light pink shade for $11.32.

    My colleague Abby Kass has tried this and loves it — for more, read her Essie Gel Couture nail polish review.

    32. Some hiker-favorite merino wool socks that stay in place no matter what your day brings, wick moisture away from your skin, resist odor, and best of all, last for miles and miles without any holes.

    instagram.com

    They're incredibly comfortable and durable. But if that's not enough, the company has an unconditional lifetime guarantee, so if / when they do wear through, you can get a new pair, no problem.

    Promising review: "I originally purchased one pair of these socks in Alaska for hiking. Liked them so much that I bought a second pair the following year. I lived in those socks for three years before they wore out. Bought replacements and realized they had a lifetime guarantee. Returned the two worn out pairs and received replacements. Got a couple of pairs for my husband and he loves them. I also purchased the light weight ankle socks for myself and my daughters for summer biking and hiking. Not so expensive when you can keep returning them for replacements." —Sylvia

    Get them on Amazon for $16.96+ (most pairs around $22; sizes small-large, eight colors/patterns. To get the lifetime guarantee, make sure to buy from one of their authorized Amazon sellers).

    You to these products, after they do such an excellent job:
