    1. A versatile Fur Oil (you may remember it from Shark Tank!) that's specially designed for your pubic hair but can actually be used on your underarms, legs, chest, face — anywhere hair grows really. It clears pores, helping to banish ingrown hairs, bumps, and razor burn, soothes irritation post-shaving, and softens prickly stubble. With daily use, you'll get healthier, smoother skin, and regrowth of hair will be finer, helping future hair removals be more gentle.

    Promising review: "This is one of the best purchases I’ve made. I am an African American woman with very curly hair. I love getting waxed but had the worst hair bumps. I discovered this product. Its directions are to use once every day after taking a shower and drying off and the hair bumps were gone after two days. The bottle is small but I can’t go without it now. It’s the only thing that has worked for me. I highly recommend." —ambr78709

    Get it from Amazon for $28.

    2. A painless mint-flavored teeth-whitening pen because it grants you that bright, white, movie-star smile you've always wanted. Plus, this is great for sensitive teeth and gums. Prepare for blinding your IG followers!

    Promising review: "I really liked this product because it gave me significant results in just a few days. I have tried other whitening products but I definitely think this one is my favorite because its not only easy to use but also works very well. There is also no weird aftertaste, and all I do is keep my mouth open wide for around 30 seconds. The whitening capabilities were also great, and I know this because my teeth were stained before but now they are not. Lastly these pens were very easy to use because all you have to do is twist the dial at the bottom of the pen clockwise, and product comes out. So overall I would rate this pen a 10/10 and I am definitely planning on buying more in the future." —Roy Joseph

    Get two from Amazon for $19.99.

    3. A pair of elegant blue-light-blocking glasses so you may end the day *without* a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad headache, strained eyes, and exhaustion, especially 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.,

    Promising review: "OK so I love these glasses so much! The quality is even better than I expected. They are simple enough to go with everything while still being so fashionable. Not to mention my migraines have decreased since I started wearing them. 10/10 would recommend." —Micaela P

    Get it from Amazon for $19.98 (available in seven colors).

    4. An immunity-boosting allergy supplement that'll provide your dog with much-needed probiotics and nutrients to help improve immune function and digestion, promote healthy skin, and add shine to fur. Your dog deserves to be at their best and now you'll know they are without fainting over the vet's bill.,

    Promising review: "Absolutely the best product. It saved my itchy goldendoodle! We tried changing food, Benadryl, medicated shampoo, fish oil, everything you can imagine... nothing worked long-term. He was itching his face so badly he would make himself bleed. Had sores and scabs all over his face and neck. I bought these because they had good reviews and I was desperate. It changed his life! He no longer scratches AT ALL! His coat looks great and all of his sores are healed. He’s the happiest he’s been which makes me a very happy momma. He is also very picky and never eats treats... he eats these every time so that’s an added bonus!" —Darcie Nation

    Get it from Amazon for $26.97.

    5. A pair of vintage Reebok sneakers to make long walks comfortable and fashionable, with cushiony support for your feet you'll be grateful for, and a retro touch to your fits that channels the '90s and '80s.,

    FYI, these are included in Prime Wardrobe so you can give them a trial run if you're a member!

    Promising review: "It is an awesome retro sneaker, and I am really happy with the way they look. They are very comfortable, but I do recommend sizing down a half size with these, especially if you have small/narrow feet like mine. I am a true 6, and although they do fit, I think a 5.5 would be perfect. I definitely recommend these." —Gayla Holleyman

    Get them from Amazon for $40+ (available in sizes 5–12 and 21 colors).

    6. A posture corrector for wearing over or under your clothes. It'll help fix your posture and ease back, neck, and shoulder pain. We're all guilty of slumping, aren't we?

    the back brace on a person

    Promising review: "I ordered this posture corrector because I slouch too much, and when I try to stand up straight i feel like I overcompensate and it gets tiring. The reason I like this product is that when I have it on, it doesn't restrict my movements like a brace with a plate might; I don't feel like I'm having to put effort into standing straight so I'm not getting fatigued even after wearing it for a full 8-hour day. I'm really pleased with my purchase; it's well designed and easy to use, and I think will eventually fix my bad posture." —mdantes

    Get it from Amazon for $13.86.

    7. A jetted tub cleaner because you shouldn't have to wallow in dirty water! This cleans inside your jets so the water you draw for your bath is crystal clear.

    Promising review: "This stuff is seriously amazing! I am relentless about cleaning my tub because I use it so often and always get grossed out if I don’t. Before I purchased this, I used the typical homemade recipe of bleach and powdered dishwashing soap. I’d have to run two or three cycles to get it crystal clear. One cycle with this stuff, 15 minutes, and the results are amazing! The first photo (above) is with my tub running with the solution. Then I drained it (second photo) and wiped it down with a sponge. When I refilled the tub up, and reran the jets, I kid you not the water was CRYSTAL CLEAR! See for yourself in the last photo! I’m so impressed!" —Chelsea

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    8. Avarelle acne patches (also available in extra large) that'll come to the rescue when a surprise pimple makes an appearance. Just slap 'em on! Not only do these blend in so they work as a sort of concealer, but they'll also prevent you from picking or popping your breakout.,

    Reviewers say they blend in with their skin so they can wear them throughout the day!

    Promising review: "I’ve been experimenting with these for the last month and a half, and I am in love. They are really thin and blend into my highly freckled face incredibly well...I have gone out in public twice with them on, because when I did my last second mirror check before I got out of the car, I didn’t notice I had them on! While they absolutely help clean out the skin underneath, the biggest thing it does for me is stops me from touching my face. When I'm stressed out, I will absentmindedly touch/run my hands along my face and jaw constantly. Now, when I notice I’m doing that, I run into the bathroom and put these on any spots I have. Since they are thin and stick really well, I am able to leave them alone and stop touching my face." —MelsBells

    Get a box of 40 round patches for $8.49 and a box of 8 extra-large patches for $8.50, both from Amazon.

    9. A jewelry cleaning brush to make polishing your precious stones simple, quick, and almost like magic. Though it's cheap, it'll get rid of the clouding dirt and make your gems look like a million bucks again so you can show off your faves once more. Gratitude, indeed!

    Twist the bottom of the pen to dispense the fluid and brush onto the gem to clean!

    Promising review: "Don't get me wrong — my wedding ring was gorgeous before. It did sparkle and still made me smile every day. However...after using this..*oh my goodness*! My ring is absolutely breathtaking! I knew my ring got dirty, simply from sweating and being outside in the elements. However, I never realized just how much dinge and schmutz marred my beautiful diamond until I cleaned it. It literally took my breath away with its fiery, dazzling brilliance! My wedding ring is something that always makes my heart beat a little faster: for its beauty, for what it represents...and now, my smile is even bigger and my heart skips a beat a little more as I gaze upon this amazing clarity. It is an amazing value with mind-blowing, beautiful results!" —liltreeclimber

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    10. A power scrubber brush you attach to an actual drill (um, wow) to do all the backbreaking work for you. You'll be done before you've even finished saying "power scrubber brush."

    The scrubber and drill next to a shower door, half of which is stained, the other half of which was cleaned thoroughly by the drill

    Promising review: "These brushes are freaking fantastic. I tried them on a portion of my shower and bathroom floor tiles and grout. I immediately had to do the rest because it made the cleaner sections look dirty. I also tried it on the side of my fridge that is next to my stove top. It did a pretty good job there as well at removing grease and stains. The only downside is that it made me enjoy cleaning!" —Eric T. Ma

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in six brush stiffnesses).

    11. A cold brew maker because you can kick off your morning with a nice cup of iced coffee to rouse you without having to leave your house or waste time stopping by Starbucks. Who wins at life? That's right, you.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    Check out our Takeya Cold Brew Maker review to learn why my colleague loves it so much, and see what won our picks for the best cold brew makers that we tried and tested ourselves!

    Promising review: "I don't know how I ever functioned without this. It's my first cold coffee brewer. I'm usually a daily drive-through cold coffee drinker. I haven't purchased a coffee for two weeks since having this! I found it super easy to brew. I usually just add milk and a flavored liquid creamer. I also made a simple syrup and use that with a little milk sometimes. I haven't made a single glass of iced coffee that I couldn't drink. So simple! Don't hesitate to try it!" —Jennifer

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    12. A pumice stone to make the inside of your toilet look totally spotless and pretty because, ya know, pretty toilets are a thing and you don't want your day ruined by an ugly toilet.,

    Promising review: "I had stubborn stains on my toilet bowl that wouldn't come out with toilet bowl cleaner, the toilet bowl brush, bleach, or anything else I tried. The stains were stuck for months but the pumice was able to remove it instantly. The pumice did not scratch the bowl at all." —Margaret D.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (also available in multi-packs).

    13. A ChomChom pet hair roller if your pet sheds like a a lot, a lot...and you're tired of cleaning up after it. Just roll, roll, roll, and watch the fur lift away!

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my cat-loving life? Sticky rollers work fine for clothes, but this is the only product that has ever COMPLETELY removed all the cat hair from my bed. I have a long-haired 20-pound tabby and if you run your hands up his back a few times and fling the hair everywhere, it looks like it's snowing — he never stops shedding no matter what I do. After using the ChomChom, I can put on a black dress and roll around on my bed and not get a single hair on me. It's absolutely amazing. Everyone is getting one for Christmas, even if they don't have a pet. I don't care, it's THAT good." —Stephanie

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    14. A wrinkle releaser spray because you're not about to be late to work or miss exciting plans spending 30 minutes ironing out your clothes. Just spray 'em and be on your merry way.

    Promising review: "Whenever I pull a shirt or pants from my closet that has some wrinkles, I lay it on my bed and spray the material wherever the wrinkles are followed by a sweeping of the material to smooth it out and reduce/remove the wrinkles. Turn and complete on the other side. I then hang it up to dry for a few minutes. I will say that if you have embedded wrinkles or a very thick/rough type fabric, it may not work and you'll need to iron. I find this a convenient item to have as most my shirts are on the thinner side." —Meatballs Mommy

    Get two bottles on Amazon for $13.94.

    15. A whitening powder to brighten graying and yellowing whites, and remove stains from fruit, wine, tea, coffee, even blood! Talk about powerful.


    The cardboard/steel canister is recyclable and the labels are compostable. The formula is non-toxic, fragrance-free and biodegradable.

    Celsious is a Black woman-owned small biz!

    Get it from Celsious for $23.

    16. A gentle and organic sugaring treatment that combines hair removal with skincare so you can stay hair-free for up to two months! You get the benefits without the temporariness of shaving or the pain of waxing. This uses chamomile, lemon, tea tree oil, and sugar for antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and soothing benefits.

    Promising review: "Never wrote a product review before, but I feel the need to express my satisfaction for this. The trick is to always pull it in the direction of growth. The packaging looks more reassuring than other products that comes in the plastic containers. It's super easy to use and I just put it on the vent of my apartment for a couple hours to warm it up. I never waxed my armpit before (so the hair is much thicker cause I shave). Tried it on my armpit, and it definitely hurt way less than waxing. Going to try my bikini line next. It is also super easy to clean; just take a warm shower after. This will save me lots of money." —Frances

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    17. A wooden wireless charging pad you can keep your phone or Airpods charging on if you wake up and see that — gasp — your charger wasn't plugged in overnight.

    Elizabeth Lilly / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I gotta say this is the best sharpener I ever bought in my whole life. I got it today and brought it to work. I work at a Japanese restaurant as a sushi chef and I sharpened it at work and wow my knife was, like, sharp like a samurai sword! Even my coworkers were surprised and asked me to order one for them. It was so sharp that I barely touched the knife and my pinky fingers got cut and I had to be sent home from work. Thanks for the product! Now I don't have to use the stone or sharpen rod that much anymore." —Are

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in four colors).

    19. BYO Blush, a one-of-a-kind color-changing vegan and cruelty-free blush oil that'll react to the pH of your skin and actually change color to adjust to your skin 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!


    When I wore this, it gave me the prettiest natural-looking flush, and it actually lasted me the whole day, which is a miracle for my combo-oily skin. It really looks like it's part of your skin rather than sitting on top, and I love that it's good for your skin too! Plus, if two people with the same skin tone apply the blush, they'll both get a slightly different color! How cool is that? This contains 20 plant-based, antioxidant-rich oils that help nourish skin.

    Youthforia is a woman-owned small biz that aims to make makeup that's so good for your skin you can sleep in it. The founder, Fiona Co Chan, even tested the blush by sleeping in it for two months! They are passionate about being environmentally-friendly and not using fossil fuels or gross toxins in their products.

    Promising review: "Dewy and glowy. I tried it over makeup and it appeared as a strong pink shade but settled to a flushed, glow-y color. I had my little sister try it too because I wanted to see the color change again and it lasted a really long time on her. The texture was smooth and it was easy to rub in and blend out." —Summer

    Get it from Youthforia for $36.

    20. An Affresh dishwasher cleaning tablet to clean the inside of your machine and get rid of those mysterious stains and smells on your plates. When you realize you won't have to spend hours scrubbing away at them, it'll make your mood so much better.

    Promising reviews: "Works extremely well. We haven't done any cleaning on our dishwasher in five years, and there was detergent build-up all over the inside, and a milky film on all our cups. I bought Affresh, ran the dishwasher with two tablets while it was empty, and the difference was astounding. There was still some build-up and I figured it would require another cycle, so I popped another two tablets in, and now it looks and sounds brand new. No more film on the glasses, no more dirty dishes from clogged sprayers, no more odors, or buildup around the door seals." —Martoune

    Get a pack of six tablets from Amazon for $5.99.

    21. A pack of food spikes for indoor plants because you know what? You're tired of taking care of houseplants and you just don't have the green thumb for it. Did you know these existed? They'll feed and grow your plants with no other work on your part!

    the spikes

    Promising review: "These are the best supplements for your plants. [My] plant was dying and had lost most of its leaves. I didn't want to re-pot it because the plant had already grown. But I didn't want it to die either. Buying the miracle grow indoor plant feeder sticks was a last ditch effort to save this guy and it worked! The fertilizer sticks are easy to use, you just push them into the soil and water. Your plants will flourish once you start feeding them these little guys. I highly recommend this product for happy healthy plants and for plant owners that don't want to re-pot!" —Crystal

    Get 24 spikes from Amazon for $2.79.

    22. A soft and strong spatula that uses flexible silicone to keep your cookware scratch-free and makes it easy to scrape, mix, flip, and access the sides and corners without circus-level twists and tricks.

    This is perfect for nonstick and can be safely used on nonstick (and stainless steel) surfaces. Material Kitchen is an Asian-owned small biz that's focused on making cookware for the modern home cook that's way better quality than the items you'd find at retail stores.

    Promising review: "Best spatula ever!! It flips omelets effortlessly, It never sticks to anything (or anything to it), a simple rinse cleans it thoroughly, and it doesn’t mind sitting on the edge of a hot pan. I bought three for my friends and they all love them too!" —John 

    Get it from Material Kitchen for $15 (available in three colors).

    23. A compact heated massager for spoiling your limbs because that's so much more preferable to cramps and sore legs. You'll always be well-rested with this around!

    the massager

    My colleague loves this too! See what she has to say below:

    "I recently purchased this bad boy as a birthday gift for my momma and after plugging it in and letting it get to work on her shoulders — which she's complained about having pain in for months — she immediately said her shoulders felt lighter. I tried this on my feet and honestly, it's sooooo relaxing! It feels like rolling your feet across tiny lacrosse balls but BETTER because all you have to do is sit there and let this contraption do all the work for you." —Jasmin Suknanan

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95+ (available in three colors).

    24. An eco-friendly plant-based walnut scrubber sponge because it's strong and abrasive enough to take on your dirtiest dishes, countertops, and more. This way, you won't feel like breaking dishes if you're trying to do them and your weak traditional sponge falls apart again.

    Get it from Public Goods for $4.75.

    25. 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? This can actually be used anywhere in the house to rid the air of strong odors so it's a great investment.

    the spray

    This formula is nontoxic and paraben-free.

    Promising review: "I didn't think I would like this, but it works! I was shocked. My husband has very regular BMs and that usually means that the rest of us have to avoid that part of the house for at least a little while. I got this for his birthday as a gag gift, but we tried it and it works amazingly well! The only downside is that I'm starting to associate the pleasant citrus scent with poop as well. It is not a subtle coverup, as anyone who walks by the bathroom will smell a great outpouring of citrus, but it's better than the alternative! Overall, I definitely recommend this product to anyone who poops." —steel_muffins

    Get it from Amazon for $8.95.
