    25 Products That May Only Do One Thing, But They Do It Really, Really Well

    Whether it's a super fancy moisturizer or an unassuming laundry hamper, the products you'll find here are the best at their job.

    1. A moisturizer-serum hybrid that'll leave you with plump, supple skin. It's light as water yet hydrating with honey, glycerin, and ceramides. Fruit oils brighten, and honey, an anti-inflammatory, soothes — all at an almost unbelievable price point. I love this so much sometimes I have nightmares they'll stop selling it 😳.

    2. A silky coated pan with a core of copper and infused with a fume-free coating for fantastic heat distribution while cooking! And it lasts way longer than regular pans. You've finally found your go-to, haven't you? Your food is gonna turn out so perfect.

    3. A pair of elegant blue-light blocking glasses so you may be less likely to end the day with a blaring headache, strained eyes, and exhaustion if you typically stare at screens for hours. These will help protect your eyes and your mood, and they're nice enough to wear outside too.

    4. A Monster Calls if you're in the mood for a tearjerker or just a poignantly told beautiful story. It's a dark, modern fairytale about a mysterious tree monster that shows up in 13-year-old Conor’s life, and it's there to make him tell the truth about the recurring nightmare he’s had since his mother got sick — the truth that Conor would rather die than face. It's powerful, moving, funny, and makes me cry every time and just...if you don't feel anything after reading this, you don't have a heart.

    5. A curl-defining cream to go through summer with the curls of your dreams. This helps give your strands oomph, and keeps them soft (no stiffness or crunchiness!), brushable, bouncy, and shiny. Frizzy curls begone!

    6. An eco-friendly two-in-one food bowl because it'll keep your lunch cold or hot, nurse your leftovers, and make everyone else jealous with how good it looks. It has a triple-layered, vacuum-insulated exterior and a durable interior that's safe for the microwave and dishwasher, and marked with measurements to make meal prep easy.

    7. An orthopedic pain relief seat cushion for those who sit or drive for prolonged periods of time. This helps with tailbone pain, sciatica, leg pain, and lower back pain, and encourages better posture. It's made with memory foam too so it'll mold itself to the shape of your bottom!

    8. BYO Blush, a one-of-a-kind color-changing vegan and cruelty-free blush oil that reacts to the pH of your skin and actually changes color to adjust to your tone! You get a pretty flush and your own shade of blush perf just for you. That means you literally don't even need to think about if the blush matches your fit for the day! It's also made with skincare ingredients so you can actually *gasp* sleep in it and wake up with good skin!

    9. This cute "Egguins" egg-holder to both store and serve your eggs in the most creative way. These penguins hold up to six eggs and you can keep them in your fridge or dunk them in boiling water (don't worry, they'll be fine and so will your eggs). The handle stays cool so you can comfortably pull your penguins out from the pot or carry them wherever!

    10. A tub of Neogen double-sided exfoliating pads that acts as both a physical and chemical exfoliant in one. With powerful ingredients like glycolic acid, vitamin C, and lemon, it'll help clear clogged pores, fade acne scars, and reveal a bright, clean layer of skin. If your skin doesn't feel soft, bouncy, and clean after this, I'll change my name.

    11. A lovely and affordable Vellabox candle subscription because it is the absolute definition of the word "cozy." These natural candles have irresistible scents curated to the season that you'll just want to immerse your whole being in! Plus, the containers just make your room look so aesthetically pleasing. And if you want, you can just get one candle too!

    12. A thickening shampoo for fine and thin hair. It uses organic coconut water and mimosa flower for lightweight body and volume, and you can physically feel the thickness of your hair after using this!

    13. A foldable wooden clothing rack to function as an extended wardrobe so that when the rest of your clothes don't fit into your tiny closet, you don't have to keep them strewn all over your chair and bed. It has a bottom shelf for extra storage and will look super chic in your room!

    14. A citrus-scented toilet spray you spritz in the bowl before you go so no one is the wiser as to what you did in the bathroom 😉. What's better than stopping the smell before it's even happened? Honestly, you can use this anywhere in the house to rid the air of strong odors!

    15. An Athena Club Razor Kit for, dare I say, the best shave of your life. It's curve-friendly, the blades have skin guards to prevent razor burn (!!!), and it has a vegan, water-activated shea butter serum built in that conditions skin and lets you forgo shaving cream. The coolest part? It comes with a rust-proof magnetic hook that keeps your razor in place so you don't end up dropping it 20 times. You can use the hook to hang your loofah too!

    16. A Bougie water bottle to take the act of drinking water to the next level. With double-walled insulation and a leak-proof flip lid (so you don't have to keep unscrewing the cap), it makes getting your daily dose of hydration easy. Plus, it doesn't do that thing where the water tastes stale after a few hours. The blue bottle is from their new couture collection, which, needless to say, is gorgeous! Fun fact: this can hold an entire bottle of wine. Bougie indeed!

    17. A pack of breathable cotton undies because tight underwear shouldn't be a thing, especially not in the summer. These will do a great job of keeping you perfectly comfortable!

    18. This Kulfi Kajal Eyeliner that'll give you a super creamy glide and texture, and long-lasting, non-budging color so all you really need to do is line and you're done. A holy grail for sure, it also has aloe vera and vitamin E to help moisturize and act as antioxidants. No more runny eyes! Whoop-whoop!

    19. A build-your-own reusable stainless steel straw set so you can be environmentally friendly (which is really important to do!) and make your life more convenient. This includes a straw for you and one to share — plus you get a straight and bent stainless steel straw so you can have your pick of the day!

    20. An all-natural deodorant that uses just five simple ingredients, including dead sea minerals to control odor, and tapioca starch to absorb wetness. You'll feel good about using this on your underarms.

    21. A nail-strengthening solution for helping restore and protect your damaged nails so you can show them off without fear.

    22. A glowy and lightweight beauty cream to illuminate skin with pearl and flower extracts like rose and jasmine until it looks like you put a real-life filter on it! It'll soften, moisturize, even and brighten skin tone, and help control sebum. A dream cream if you will, that'll ensure you look as radiant as the moon 🌙.

    23. A petite and oh-so-stylish wicker laundry hamper that'll hold loads of clothes so you'll never feel guilty anymore coming home to your dirty laundry hanging out all over your room. This fits perfectly into little corners so it'll be out of your way and comes with its own removable cotton canvas laundry bag.

    24. A gorgeously detailed canvas painting of the lantern scene from Tangled that you'll just fall in love with it when it combs. It's the only home decor piece you'll ever need. Have fun picking out all the little details you'll inevitably miss on your first viewing!

    25. A reversible and portable canvas boba tea holder — it can also work for water bottles that don't have handles! This way, you have no excuse to leave your beverage behind if you're going somewhere and have nowhere to put it. Enter: this!
