    1. A rapid egg cooker that'll make you do a double take because of how many eggs it holds and how it simplifies every egg-based meal you set about to make, including omelets, scrambled eggs, poached eggs, hard-boiled — the works! Can it really be that easy? You bet., Amazon

    Sounds magical! And let me tell you — it is. Get one of these egg-cellent appliances ASAP.

    Promising review: "If you are on the fence about getting one of these, GET ONE. It really is as easy as it sounds to have a perfectly cooked egg, no guesswork. Just have an ice bath ready next to the cooker and let the eggs sit for a minute or two in there...peels come right off :) Makes healthy eating a breeze in the morning! Where has this been all my life?!?!?" —rebecca

    2. A lazy Susan turntable because oh, you think it only fits just a few bottles? Spin it around! Not only do you finally get an organized cabinet and countertop but you can just spin this round like you do in a store when you need to see what's in the back without unloading 20 bottles and cans to find one sauce.,

    Promising review: "I am using these in a corner cabinet in my kitchen for oddball canned goods. It utilizes the lower shelf so much better. I can just turn the tables instead of taking half of the cans out of the cabinet to find a specific item. They seem very sturdy even though I have canned goods on them and they are not wobbly and still spin freely. Thank you, love the turntables." —Gary Gaudin

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in seven colors).

    3. A standing desk converter to make everyone else looking again. You can effortlessly go from sitting to stretching your legs in seconds.

    Promising review: "I just assembled this before work, in less than 15 minutes, and have been using it all day. I am VERY pleased with it. It rises and lowers so easily and smoothly and there is plenty of room for my two monitors. The keyboard and mouse fit comfortably on the keyboard tray... Sitting at my desk all day was starting to really hurt my back and shoulders so this was necessary for me. I feel more productive and energized just from standing while I work!" —lauren

    Get it from Amazon for $149.99+ (available in five colors).

    4. A reusable Revlon oil-absorbing face roller made of real volcanic stone that'll give your old oil blotting papers a run for their money! Yeah, this face roller doesn't just massage your face — it soaks up oil instantly and mattifies your skin with or without makeup. Leave the blotting paper users in the dust and move into the future!


    And you'll have less waste since there are no blotting papers to throw out!

    To clean this, twist the roller’s ring to unlock and pull out the stone. Wash it with a gentle cleanser, rinse, and air-dry before locking it back in.

    Promising review: "This product is amazing! My face is very oily. I've used oil absorbing sheets for a while but the cost started adding up. I had my doubts about this product considering it was just a rock but it actually works! Removed all the oil from my face, giving it a matte look, and I couldn't be happier! Finally, my years of suffering and having to carry napkins around are over!" —Nic

    Get it from Amazon for $9.98.

    5. A cool sitting ball because chairs are very last season. This'll not only help relieve back pain but also engage your abs and core, promote good posture, and help you stretch. Easiest way to work out while sitting, I daresay!

    Model sitting on the chair

    Promising review: "I have to sit for nine hours a day, so this is nice to change things up a bit and engage my lower back more. It requires active sitting, so your feet and back will be moving around. Between this, a kneeling chair, and standing up at my desk, I can make it to the end of the day without back pain." —D

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99+ (available in two sizes and nine colors).

    6. A cat pouch hoodie that might make you and everyone else do a double take once they see a kitty inside. And now you never have to go anywhere without your furry lil bud. Need snuggles? Just bring your cat with you.


    Reviewers advise to size up so your cat will fit comfortably!

    Promising review: "I'm not really a cat lady (yet) but someone anonymously sent this to me (or so I tell people) when I got a new dog, an older rescue who had never been around cats. The dog is not mean to her but the cat finds it disturbing that she can't sit in my lap without a giant German shepherd staring at her from three inches away. Like imagine if you were trying to sleep and a creature whose head was bigger than your body was hanging over you. So, into the 'roo pocket she goes and she will stay there for hours. Sometimes I have to call in sick to my job because the cat won't let me change out of the roo. It's not forbidden to wear a 'roo to work but it might make people not take me very seriously so I only go to work on the days the cat says I can. Seriously this is the dorkiest thing ever and I look really stupid in it but I love it for real." —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in sizes S–XXXL and seven colors).

    7. These fun zombie face masks because hello? They make you look like a zombie! But they also help minimize fine lines, tighten pores, firm skin, and improve texture. It's a perf way to do skincare during your scary movie night!,

    Promising review: "I'm 27 and this is my second time purchasing these masks. I use these about once every other week or so. I have seen drastic improvements in my skin. After one use my skin was not nearly as dry and flaky. My face seemed a lot more supple and plump as well. After continued use, I have noticed my fine lines on my forehead are less noticeable and the overall texture of my skin is more smooth compared to bumpy looking. I also noticed I don't look as tired even though I'm exhausted lol. My uneven skin tone has improved and my face has brightened some. I live and work in the city and I think you can tell by my skin appearance but after using these my skin looks fresh, soft, and has a nice glow to it even after one use. I will continue to keep these masks stocked in my vanity." —Rachel

    8. A cute and convenient kitchen timer that'll make you do a double take because it so does not look like a kitchen timer. You won't be panicking and running about wildly as your food burns or spills over — stuff like that is totally avoidable with something like this. You will get your pecan pie or Thai fried rice to come out perfectly.

    a small green timer that looks like a stand mixer

    Promising review: "It's very convenient and the font is very big and the countdown is very convenient and you can turn off the numbers when you're not looking at the time. The sound is also quite loud, and the function of silencing is very practical and suitable for quiet places. The clock is a little fast. It's also nice to have a master switch, which turns off when you're not using it, and when you do, the clock turns off." —Monique Hutchinson

    Get it from Amazon for $12.98.

    9. A mini fridge you will come to highly appreciate when you're ~in the zone~ and cannot risk a distracting trip to the kitchen. Not only is it cute to have in your room but you'll be able to stock your fave snacks for the day and have all you need!

    You can charge this using an adapter in your car or a regular outlet, and if you unplug it and take it on the go, items will stay cold for several hours as long as you don't open the door.

    Promising review: "I bought this refrigerator because I recently started working from home because of the COVID-19 quarantine. When I’m working during the day, I have to keep myself locked up in the spare bedroom so my toddler doesn’t realize I’m home. Otherwise, she would be trying to come see me all day. **Disclaimer: I don’t just lock my toddler out and leave her alone, there’s someone here taking care of her! Anyway, since I can’t really leave the bedroom, this fridge has been great to keep some drinks cold while I’m working. I put them in already cold and they hold the temperature as long as they are in the fridge." —Aratay

    Get it from Amazon for $45.99+ (available in five colors).

    10. A washable glove that's not just a glove — it's also for grooming! This makes grooming easy because it'll trick your pet into thinking you're giving them a loving massage when actually, you're doing that and removing all the loose hair so your house stays pet hair-free.

    AnaMaria Glavan / BuzzFeed

    Fellow BuzzFeed writer AnaMaria Glavan raves about this product:

    "My dog has recently started to shed, and I am finding that all my clothes are covered in his fur. I had seen this pet grooming glove all over the internet, so I figured I’d give it a try. And boy oh good boy, it genuinely works. The glove is super comfortable and using it couldn’t be more foolproof: just put it on and run your hands through your pet’s fur. That’s it! The silicone grooves pick up so much fur with ease. Like, my dog looks close to hairless. After a few runs, I found that I would have to remove fur from the glove before continuing (you can pick up the fur with your other hand or run the glove under water) but it’s no biggie. The silicone actually makes it really easy to keep this clean. Not only does this *not* bother his skin, but he….loves this. He starts snoring after exactly two run-throughs on his back. Also, his coat looks SO shiny after each use! TL;DR: this is one of those inexpensive add-ons that any pet owner should have on hand."

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in three colors).

    11. A ~surreal~ iridescent mermaid scrunchie to elevate your daily (read: boring) ponytail or bun in a totally dreamy way. Leave it on your wrist as a pretty accessory too! It kinda looks like it came from underwater, no?

    Get it from ZeroZoneDesign on Etsy for $4.80+ (available in two sizes). 

    12. A bug bite suction tool for almost instant relief from itchiness. It removes insect venom, saliva, and other irritants left by a bite. No chemicals needed! Just whip this out instead of a spray so you'll finally be able to step out for some sun without fear of returning with a million mosquito bites., Amazon

    Promising review: "I cannot stress to you enough how much better this simple little tool has made my quality of life during summer in Ohio. It rains a lot. There are a lot of mosquitoes. I have horrific allergic reactions to mosquito bites. We're talking bumps swelling to the width of softballs within minutes of the bite. This tool doesn't make those bumps go away, but it stops the itch IMMEDIATELY. I was a huge skeptic; how could a little suction cure this agonizingly itchy allergic reaction? I still really don't know how it does, but it provides instant relief that no pill, cream, or injection ever has ever achieved for me. If you live anywhere where insect bites are common, you need to own one of these!" —Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95 (also available in black).

    13. A reversible cat scratcher lounge bed others might mistake as house decor! Give your furry pal a fun and comfy place to rest, play, and get out their scratching urges so your couch stays tear-free. This includes catnip, is spacious enough for multiple cats, and has lots of scratching space. Plus, its funky design adds to your room decor too. One reviewer hung them up as cat shelves, which would make anyone do a double take.,

    Promising review: "Kitty loves it! Never had a cat before and then I brought in a 10-year-old stray from my old apartment. He is the sweetest cat ever and I fell in love with him so wanted to spoil him. He loves it even more than I could have hoped. Spends several hours a day sleeping or just perched on it and hits it with his claws every time he jumps on. So adorable. Have had it for a couple months and it's held up really well. Cool that when the top is worn out I can just flip it over and it's like having a brand new scratcher again. He's a pretty big/long cat so I was unsure how well he'd fit on it but it's absolutely perfect. Will definitely be buying another if this one ever wears out!" —Super Bon Bon

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95.

    14. A lap desk to beat all lap desks. The built-in mouse pad, wrist pad, and a phone/tablet holder will def have you looking twice. Now, wherever you are in the house, whether it's your couch, in bed, or at the kitchen table, your productivity levels will stay top-notch!

    The lap desk

    Promising review: "This has got to be the best laptop lap desk I have ever owned! The wrist rest is cushiony, and the cushions on the back are super comfortable on my legs. It has a slight incline, which is perfect. It's sturdy and light. Love the handle, the mouse pad with borders so the mouse won't fall off, and the tablet/phone slots. I don't write a lot of reviews, but I am so happy with this product that I had to give it a good review. Hopefully, this will help someone who is searching for the right lap desk. Recommend it to anyone." —J. Castro

    Get it from Amazon for $39.78.

    15. An absolutely striking crushed opal ring with a gold elk antler inlay because it'll look like the stuff of fairy mist and dreams on your finger — just look at that stone!

    Promising review: "This band was intended to match my engagement ring. It arrived weeks ahead of time and was well-packaged.

    Get it from StoneForgeStudios on Etsy for $660+ (available in sizes 4–16 and four metals).

    16. An eyebrow soap kit to make your natural brows look so thick and fluffy (à la Lily Collins) that you'll be doing a double take in the mirror. It sets brow hairs in place with its natural formula so you don't even need to go in with extra color or shading if that's not your thing. If you've wanted to rock fluffy, natural brows since forever, now's your chance!

    Promising review: "I was looking for a good soap for soap brows for so long! I have super dark brow hair and the problem I have with most bar soap is it will get each throughout the day or super sudsy and white. This product did not! It was amazing and left my brows in whatever direction I wanted!!!" —Savannah

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    17. These cute cotton ruffle cuffed ankle socks that aren't regular socks. They'll peek through the tops of your shoes and look super stylish. A great upgrade from regular ones.


    Promising review: "These socks are the perfect weight and actually stay up without sliding down. Needed sone cute shorter socks to wear with my Dr. Martens loafers and these look great. The colors included go with everything!" —Lara

    Get a pair of five from Amazon for $5.66+ (available in five color packs).

    reviewer holding chopper filled with chopped garlic

    Remember those cars that scooted around after you pulled them back to wind 'em up? This device is kind of like that. After you fill it with garlic, simply roll it around to chop up the garlic. It saves time and fingers.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this little gadget! I had a couple of the regular sized GarlicZooms for a while now and loved their usefulness, so I decided to get the XL. I will never look back! The smaller ones can only handle a few cloves of garlic at a time. I tried four cloves with the XL and it could've handled twice that easily. It chopped them up so fast with no problems. I know there's a lot of 'I can chop my own garlic' folks out there and that's fine. I love garlic, but loathe chopping it. I hate the way you can't get rid of the smell from your hands. So this little gadget works wonders!" —Lindiana Jones

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    20. 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

    Each pack comes with 48 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 (available in four quantities).

    21. A 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 *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.

    22. A super pretty rainbow prism suncatcher you can hang up so when the sun catches them, you'll be looking twice at the tiny little rainbows that'll really perk your mood up!,

    Promising review: "They actually were bigger than I anticipated, which was actually pretty awesome. I hung them in the window of my office and it's beautiful when they catch light. Definitely worth the money when it puts a smile on your face." —EmmyAnn

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $8.99.

    23. These test tube bath salts made with dried flowers and herbs, pure essential oils, and Himalayan salt for a soothing bath and a cool storage idea!
