    28 Products For People Who Are Always Frustrated With Everything

    Because that is me. And you. That is everybody.

    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 scalp-massaging and deep-cleaning shampoo brush to help calm and pamper you so you can come out of showers refreshed and not frustrated.


    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 gets into all the spots it can to clean your hair. I can tell you right now that my hair has never felt smoother than after I started using this product. I would definitely recommend this!" —Romie Patel

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98 (available in three colors).

    2. A vintage-looking five-year journal for some self-therapy — jot down your thoughts, clear your head, pour out your frustrations, and have a little something to look back on when you're reminiscing about yourself five years from now. "Wow, was I that bitter back then? Sheesh." —you in five years.


    Promising review: "I used to journal and I've been wanting to get back into it. I just don't have the time. And it intimidates me, writing so much every day. This eliminates both problems. I write only a couple of sentences per day. It forces me to be creative and concise. I really have to think about what was most important for the day to write down. What will I want to look back and remember in the coming years? I find it thought-provoking. This is just a great system. The book is quite small. It's very attractive looking. I love the ribbon bookmark, which is very functional." —Boxman

    Get it from Amazon for $10.17.

    3. A pack of light-dimming covers that'll mellow down all the bright LEDs around your home and the harsh glares from your electronics so you won't spend another night tossing and turning in bed. And when you're well-rested, your annoyance levels with the world go drastically down!

    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. 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! If you're looking for something to DIM, then this is for you. Also the 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 over 100 dimming stickers (in multiple sizes and shapes) from Amazon for $6.49.

    4. A little elephant planter to add some green (and some happy) to your space because plants and cute animal-shaped things are good for the mind (and heart).🌱


    There is a drainage hole at the bottom of this planter, and it also comes with a drainage dish for easy planting.

    Promising review: "Omg! These are so cute! Bought these as a set for my succulents. Perfect size, well-made and nicely detailed (the shapes, the eyes, and the noses), and for such an affordable price! Now my friends want these too! Definitely A+. I'm equally happy with the seller. They took extra effort with the packaging. Each succulent pot was individually wrapped twice in bubble wrap and then put in a box. Very professional!" —bookworm

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    5. A roll-on migraine relief stick you'll cry over (and then smile about). Loaded with therapeutic essential oils like peppermint and spearmint, this will help ease headaches — a great source of frustration, I know — and is small enough to carry in your purse.

    Katy Herman/BuzzFeed, Yi Yang/BuzzFeed

    You can apply this to your temples, forehead, and the back of your neck. We here at BuzzFeed swear by this too! Check out our review of the Migrastil Migraine Stick Roll-on to see why we love it.

    Promising review: "I have no earthly idea why this works, but it brought me back from the dead after an 11-day headache. I found it worked better to rub it all over my hot pack, zap it in the microwave, and wrap it around the base of my neck. The aromatherapy was great, and it dulled my headache enough to restore my will to live. 5/5." —Katie B.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    6. A mini screaming goat figure. It's a real-life version of those viral screaming goat videos you love. Press the button whenever you need to let off some steam and hear it shriek and startle everyone around you.


    The figure comes with a 32-page illustrated pocket guide filled with fun facts and trivia about, well, goats!

    Promising review: "This was hilarious! Both the figurine and the book. Bought for a coworker, we all laughed and laughed each time we made it scream! We even played it over the loudspeaker for our warehouse workers to hear, and hearing it over that loudspeaker had us cracking up the rest of the day! Wouldn't have thought it be so popular, but everyone loves it, especially the guy who it's for!" —Ashley

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    7. A combo pack of 16 Dermal sheet masks that contain vitamin E and collagen for supple, hydrated skin. Each one targets different concerns so if your skin's acting up and it's getting you heated, choose whichever one you need, kick back, and relax. Deep breaths, people!,

    I use these and absolutely love how refreshed and healthy my skin feels afterward. It also doesn't feel thirsty or starved for nutrients after, and my skin naturally looks brighter and dewier.

    Promising review: "These sheet masks are legit. I use one every night. It has been week one and my skin has never looked better! I haven’t had the confidence to step out without foundation in a while. After using these sheet masks consistently, I actually want to go out without foundation. My skin feels smooth; it looks soft, clear, bright, and glows! Not only does it work on me but my mom has been using them with me and there has been obvious improvement in her skin texture. After washing my face at night, I slap one of these babies on for 30 minutes and remove the sheet. Massage the extra essence into my skin and neck and I wake up with dewy, soft, supple, and glowing skin. My skin stays moisturized all day. I can’t live without these now. The price is so worth it for the results." —Amy

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    8. A set of funny ceramic plant pots that understand your sense of humor, and the frustration of growing plants, *and* prove to everyone that you do have a sense of humor, even if you feel like hissing all the time. Two birds with one stone and all that.


    Get the set of four from BloomsnRooms on Etsy for $27.57.

    9. Magical waterproof fairy lights you can hang on your walls or curtains to instantly transform your room into a frustration-free zone!


    These lights feature eight modes. Reviewers advise not to untie the twist ties while installing.

    Promising review: "The warm glow is just perfect for night time, much better than a bright white light. The lights have a few functions, but I like them to stay on. I bought two sets; I just love these! I might buy a few more sets and put them up along my porch come summer. I am very, very pleased with this purchase! Inexpensive, easy to put up, and they plug in, so I don't have to keep replacing the batteries!" —Gloria

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    10. A Grumpy Cat wall calendar full of funny phrases and photographs for a perpetually cranky sourpuss like yourself.


    Promising review: "RIP Grumpy Cat. Best calendar ever. I take these calendars every year to work and my coworkers get a chuckle every time they come over to my cubicle. Grumpy Cat continues to spread joy." —Amanda

    Get it from Amazon for $7.49.

    11. A vampire garlic mincer whose head you can aggressively twist whenever you're annoyed. He'll help you cook and vent, so give him a name and make him a permanent part of your kitchen.


    This is BPA-free and dishwasher-safe. Just twist this to chop or mince garlic, nuts, herbs, fruits, and vegetables.

    Promising review: "This is a lifesaver! It saves so much time when using garlic in a recipe! Super easy to use and dishwasher-safe! Plus extremely adorable." —Kaila

    Get it from Amazon for $17.20.

    12. An ethereal color-changing moon lamp — it emulates soft moonlight so you can come home, feel yourself calm down, and let go of the day's trials as you recreate the feeling of sleeping under a full moon.


    This features 16 colors. The moon itself is true to the actual moon's surface and texture. It can be controlled by touch or by remote and runs on a rechargeable battery. You can charge the lamp via computer, power bank, or wall outlet.

    Promising review: "I remember seeing something like this listed for over $50. I wanted one so badly because I'm obsessed with the moon and thought it would be a beautiful thing to have as a night-light, but I'm cheap and didn't want to spend that much. Well, here came this listing and OMG I love it! I love how many colors you have control over and the fade function is my favorite to use. It's real easy to set up; you just have to charge it with the provided USB charger. The remote works as soon as the moon is removed from the charger and AHH it's so cool! It can really set the mood for whatever you're going for. I enjoy the detail on the actual moon; all the bumps and grooves add to the realism while the colors make it fun and interesting. You can have a 'moon-color' warm or white light too. I am so happy with this purchase!" —Tiffini

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99 (available in six sizes).

    13. An oven mitt perfectly suitable for someone who just can't deal anymore.


    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    14. A set of notepads that just might connect with your exasperated soul.


    Promising review: "These are super cute notepads. I bought them for myself, but my daughter decided they were better off with her so I shall be getting another set for me because they are so cute and funny, plus made well, not cheap. They would make cool gifts as well. The colors are exactly as shown and pads are pretty good size so no complaints here. I would definitely recommend these!" —Amy

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    15. An appropriately themed journal for whenever you feel so vexed you're ready to start some diabolical planning.


    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    16. A small sound spa that'll emit soothing sounds like ocean waves, rain, and wind to help you forget the frustrations of your day. With 20 sounds and 30 volume levels, you'll def find your sweet spot!, Amazon

    This is portable and has continuous play, memory function, non-looping sounds, and an auto-off timer between one and seven hours.

    Promising review: "I love this sound machine. I'm a very light sleeper so any sound can wake me. What I like is not only the small size, but the sound quality is excellent and some of the sounds are so different and they sound so real. My favorite right now is Arctic wind. It makes me feel cold and snuggle into the my blankets and I can adjust the volume perfectly for me." —Kimsf

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99.

    17. A traditional matcha tea set that'll give you some peace of mind from all the hectic goings-on. Bonus: You get to have a deliciously frothy cup of tea.

    Promising review: "It's a nice bamboo set. I'm such a matcha lover and only one thing I was missing it's a nice tea set for making my ceremonies even more joyful. This is a real bamboo set, good quality, and just looks really quiet. Now I enjoy my matcha even more!" —Nataliia

    19. A pair of Vibes earplugs that comfortably decrease the volume of loud environments while still allowing you to hear clearly — so you don't have to be annoyed by unnecessary volume and unnecessary people. Plus, their almost invisible design means no one has to know.


    Promising review: "I have tinnitus/ear ringing and VERY sensitive hearing, but still love to watch live music, so I have to do SOMETHING. So I went a-searchin. That's when I came across these, remembered seeing them on Shark Tank, and took a chance on buying some. I have REALLY small ears and usually need children's versions of anything for ears, so I was worried these wouldn't fit. Guess what? They did! They're meant to create a seal, not just be shoved into your ear canal like others. It feels SO much better. So all y'all adults with small ears and/or ear canals, get you some of these. They'll complete you. These are awesome, and I am so happy I bought them. I could hear the sound well (don't be thinking you can wear ear protection and not lose ANY sound quality — I could carry on a conversation with them in, and was so happy overall. Best ear protection experience I've ever had! They weren't uncomfortable or falling out. I am a fan. A big, big fan." —KP

    Get a pair from Amazon for $23.98 (includes sizes S-L and a carrying case).

    20. A sarcastic candle that'll totally get you and do its job of scenting up the place. Fragrances range from earthy black ashwood to roasted coffee to vanilla cupcake.


    The candles are long-lasting, made with natural soy wax, and come in reusable jars.

    Promising review: "I fell in love with these candles after buying one a few weeks ago, and I really connected with the company's story. I also love that they use some of their proceeds to help women in need. My second candle arrived today and the quality of this one is just as good as the first one. It burns even and clean, all the way to the bottom! I will be back for more!" —Holly

    Get it from Amazon for $25 (available in 32 labels and scents).

    21. Too Cool for School Rules of Mastic Facial Tonic Toner, which will help hydrate, soften, and soothe your skin with ingredients like mastic oil and ceramides, formulated to strengthen the skin barrier. You can use this as a toner or a mist, so whenever you feel irritation creeping through, give yourself a refreshing spritz, take a deep breath, and continue about your day. / Via

    This is paraben-, mineral oil-, and fragrance-free.

    Promising review: "THIS. LINE. IS. EVERYTHING. My skin GLOWS after using this toner. The nozzle sprays the product evenly on my skin. I love how fine the mist is. I also love that I can stop buying cotton rounds since it's a spray. I take this to work with me to give myself a midday refresh. The only 'negatives' I would add is that you could go through this product quickly and that it's online only." —Hayls

    Get it from Ulta for $12.

    22. A small lotus aroma diffuser you can use with scents like rain, ocean, and bamboo to give your room a cool, refreshing atmosphere and cleanse your mind of everything that's been getting on your nerves. And it'll humidify dry air to boot.
