    You know you've always wanted to.

    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. Mighty Patches, because fighting breakouts can be as easy as popping on a sticker that sucks up all that gunk overnight. I will gladly trade jetpacks for a future where stickers can solve all my problems.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "If you have issues with acne (especially those nasty whiteheads) but can't afford all the fancy step by step treatments out there, you at least need to buy these. This truly worked at minimizing my pimples, sucking up the wound and keeping big pimples from getting worse. It really does draw up the pus to the patch! I leave one on overnight and just slowly peel off and then wipe away any remaining pus. I even let my mom who was visiting try it on her pimple and she loved them, so I had to order more!" —Megan Meehan

    Get a pack of 36 from Amazon for $12.50.

    2. A ThirdLove bra so you can finally understand what all the hype is about. Soft memory foam pads, no-slip straps, and unique half size options make this bra rule supreme.

    Thirdlove

    Their 24/7 T-shirt Bra is the most well-known, but I have the Unlined Minimizer and adore it!

    Promising review: "This T-shirt bra is the best fitting and most comfortable bra I have ever worn! I totally forgot I had it on and slept all night with it on! Thank you,ThirdLove!" —Karen P.

    Get it from ThirdLove for $58 (available in sizes 30A–48H, including half cup sizes, and 4 colors)

    3. A John Frieda hot air brush that'll allows you to skip the blowout bar and give themselves a killer style in the comfort of their own home.

    Rachel Dunkel / Via BuzzFeed

    I'd heard a TON of great things about the hot air brush but admittedly didn't fully believe it until I got one for myself. I was thrilled to have a dramatically short bob until I remembered just how hard they are to style. I'm nearly useless with a round brush and hairdryer. The hot air brush combines two unwieldy tools into one light, easy-to-manage one that's simple to use and greatly cuts down on my morning styling time. I recommend letting your hair air dry most of the way before finishing with this. Even a pass over dry hair helps get my bedhead into shape. Amazing. I have short hair and the 1" version is perfect.

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in two sizes).

    4. A jewelry cleaning pen, because this little tool is keeping SO MANY pieces of priceless jewelry shinier than ever and boy oh boy are there the review photos to prove it.

    amazon.com

    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 Diamond Dazzle Stik...*oh my goodness*! After one use my ring is absolutely breathtaking! I knew my ring got dirty now and then, simply from sweating and being outside in the elements. However, I never realized just how much dinge and schmutz marred my diamond until I cleaned it. It literally took my breath away with its fiery, dazzling brilliance!" —liltreeclimber

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    5. Glossier's Boy Brow to thicken and fluff your brows to perfection with just a swipe. If you've ever seen someone's brows and thought "I wonder how they get them so naturally flawless," there's a 99% chance the answer is Boy Brow.

    Glossier

    Promising review: "I didn't know I could love my brows this much. With two swipes, Boy Brow makes magic. It puffs them up and fills them out in the best way. The brown shade matched perfectly. This will be my forever product, and my top Glossier recommendation." —madeline

    Get it from Glossier for $16 (available in three shades as well as clear).

    Check our our review of this and several other Glossier products in "Just 9 Glossier Products We Really Love."

    6. A bottle of Garnier micellar water that is both a facial cleaner *and* makeup remover! Its gentle formula, effectiveness on most skin types, and low price point have earned it a lot of love. That's a lot of happy, streak-free eyeballs (including my own)!

    instagram.com

    This micellar water works for all skin types and is paraben-, fragrance-, sulfate-, and silicone-free.

    Promising review: "I wish I would have found this product years ago! I have always struggled with removing my eye makeup completely, but I have been blown away by this product. I just shake it up and put a little bit on a cotton round. A gentle wipe on my eyes is all it needs to completely remove my makeup — no more morning raccoon eyes. I take another cotton round and gently rub the rest of my face with it to remove makeup before using my face-cleansing brush. The product does not irritate my eyes or face at all. It does not feel greasy or leave a film. I feel so clean after using it, and it is very gentle. My skin has also been much clearer since I started using this — now my face-cleansing brush is able to clean my skin and not work so hard at my makeup!" —hollyb28

    Get it from Amazon for $6.74.

    7. A pack of Bottle Bright tablets so you don't have to toss your tumblers every time you leave them in the car for a few days...or a few weeks...or a month.

    on the left labeled "before" a dirty tumbler, in the middle labeled "during" a soapy tumbler, on the right labeled "after" a clean tumbler
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug — I tried everything. Bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. It grossed me out so much that I bought ANOTHER HydroFlask to replace it. Now eventually they both got black inside, so I tried these little magic tablets. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY, without even scrubbing. They look brand new. What a magical product. 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 12-pack from Amazon for $8.

    8. InstaNatural Vitamin C Serum that uses hyaluronic acid and plant stem cells to reduce sun spots, discoloration, redness, hyper-pigmentation, and dark spots without drying you out.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've tried multiple vitamin C serums, but this one is by far my favorite. The smell is lovely and it goes on very light. My skin has been looking brighter and clearer since using this.I also love that the bottle is protected from light. I purchased another serum product where you could tell the product went bad as the smell changed. I researched later and learned that proper storage for vitamin C serum must be in bottles that block out the light, as that retains all the qualities of the minerals and vitamins in the product. I am purchasing this again for the second time now. Highly recommend!" —Serena

    Get it from Amazon for $17.97.

    9. A 3-in-1 avocado slicer — I know, I know, "Why do I need this tool that literally does the job of a knife?" It perfectly halves, de-pits, and slices avocados easily and beautifully, and that sounds pretty freaking good to me.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "If you even looked through these reviews to decide if you truly needed an avocado slicer, the answer is clear — your avocado obsessions clearly requires this. I will admit, you can do everything this tool does without it. You may lose a minimal amount of avocado by using a knife instead to remove the seed and cut it open, but this product is mainly for convenience sake. I will say however the convenience is uncanny. Simple to use, it cuts everything just how you want it, and is worth the small investment for the future of my avocado enjoyment. If you inhale avocados at an alarming rate then the convenience is well worth the investment." —Friendly redwood

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    10. A pet hair vacuum that literally thousands of five-star Amazon reviewers confirm will make much quicker work of cleaning up fuzz of all kinds.

    amazon.com

    The hand vac has a 16-foot power cord and comes with two nozzles for cleaning upholstery, carpeting, and the inside of your car.


    Promising review:
    "Holy crap! Are you skeptical when it comes to buying stuff online? ME TOO! But I have four cats and a golden retriever, so I was getting desperate! A picture is worth a thousand words — check mine out! The 'before' picture was taken of my dog's bed AFTER it went through the washer and dryer. Look at all of that left behind hair! The 'after' picture was taken after only THREE MINUTES spent vacuuming her bed. I. Am. SOLD!" —Luka Chan

    Get it from Amazon for $35.70.

    11. A Pop-Socket — it's finally time to admit you can and will drop your phone. You should at least attempt to lessen the risk.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is by far my new favorite phone accessory. I thought it would be bulky & difficult to get used to, but that’s not the case at all. I haven’t dropped my phone once since using & I love that it serves as a stand when watching videos. Arrived just as pictured." —MamaLlama

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 and don't forget to check out the rest of their patterns!

    12. Allbirds runners so you can keep your feet super comfortable while letting everyone know that you listen to SO many podcasts. I've had a pair for a year and can confirm: they're super cozy, perfect for traveling, and LAST!

    13. A Tub Shroom to stop drain clogs before they even begin. You can't really stop yourself from shedding, but you can make cleaning up a heck of a lot easier and cheaper.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I shed so much hair and it has always been an issue when it comes to showering! I used to try to catch the hairs before it went to the drain in which I would later have to clean once clogged, and now I encourage and move them towards the drain and my TubShroom! It truly is amazing and the silicone material allows it to not rust like the old metal tub sink screens. It makes cleaning so much easier, and I am amazed every time. It even caught my dog's hair and he has short, thin hairs!!! Highly highly recommend this for every home." —S.K.M

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in six colors).

    Check out "This Mushroom-Shaped Hair Catcher Is So Gross, But Really Satisfying" for more *hair-raising* pics and glowing reviews!

    14. Trader Joe's Everything but the Bagel Seasoning that's — appropriately — delicious on E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G. Luckily, the internet exists, so you can still get this even if you're not lucky enough to live near a TJ's.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My friends were right. This stuff is amazing. I have been putting it on all types of food and have yet to be disappointed. While it is a lot cheaper if I were to get it from Trader Joe's, the fact is that I don't live near one so I don't mind paying the extra price here for it." —PAN66

    Get it from Amazon for $10.24.

    15. Glossier Solution featuring AHA, BHA, and PHA acids to fight breakouts. The chemical exfoliator is effective for all skin types and works to reduce acne, unclog pores, exfoliate, diminish dark spots and discoloration, and improve overall skin tone and texture.

    Glossier

    Promising review: "I only realized how much Solution has improved my skin when I looked at a photo of my unedited skin from six months ago. I have normal skin — slightly dry in winter, slightly oily in summer — and used to have hormonal breakouts pretty much constantly. Now I rarely get spots, even the week before my period. Before I bought it, I was worried that Solution would be too harsh — I don't like the feeling of stripping my skin — but it really is gentle enough to use everyday, and I love the fresh, clear, healthy skin glow it gives. I was skeptical that a product could be this good, but it really is worth the hype." —Beth

    Get it from Glossier for $24.

    16. An essential oil migraine stick so relentless headaches are finally a thing of the past. Peppermint, spearmint, and lavender oils work together to bring you sweet relief from migraines that would otherwise ruin your day.

    Katy Herman / Via BuzzFeed, Yi Yang / Via BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "OMG, finally something that works! I've had tension and migraine headaches for around 20 years. I've tried everything: over-the-counter medication, prescription medication, pain injections, going to the chiropractor, etc. This topical oil has given me relief for nearly six weeks now. I've only had two or three headaches in that time and they were mild. I've already ordered more so I have some in my car and at home, and I bought some for two of my friends who suffer from chronic migraines. I would recommend this product to anyone with migraines — it's phenomenal." —Mary D.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    17. A Stila Stay All Day eyeliner pen to help you achieve the flawless cat eye you've been dreaming of for years. Great artists need great tools, and this...*wipes tear and Stila eyeliner stays sharp and intact*...is that tool.

    instagram.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Stila is the absolute best liquid eyeliner I have ever tried. It doesn't fade or crack and stays on through sleeping and tears. It's very smudge-proof and it does not flake AT ALL. It dries quickly and stays. It's also easy to clean off at the end of the day. No hard scrubbing to get it off — makeup wipes will take it off easily. It's amazing for creating perfect wings, or drawing artfully for Halloween. It's perfect for everyday subtle looks and for getting more creative and wild. I can use this eyeliner for months at a time without having to repurchase." —Kyra

    Get it from Amazon for $22 (available in five colors and with a micro tip).

    18. An underwire bra that ACTUALLY FITS people with cup sizes above DD. Hundreds of people swear by this bra and say it lifts, separates, and stays comfortable. All. Day. Long.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I am a big-busted woman, and I have always struggled to find bras that fit. Most stores don't carry bras beyond a DDD cup so that's what I always wore, but they never did a great job and they broke down fairly quickly under the strain. This is the first bra I have EVER worn that actually fits, and I mean REALLY fits. I am a 42J, but believe me, no one would guess my cup size when I'm wearing this bra, because it keeps my breasts lifted where they need to be. For the first time ever, the center of the bra sits firmly against my chest wall, keeping my breasts separated all the time, whether I am standing or sitting. This has never been true of department store bras, which frankly are not made for people like me." —Amazon Fan

    Get it from Amazon for $31.29+ (available in sizes 36DDD–46K and 14 colors).

    19. Fanola purple shampoo to help anyone with bleached hair maintain their icy look without expensive trips to the salon. The shampoo gives hair a healthy dose of toning with every wash, keeping the ever-present threat of brassiness from coming through.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm not one to leave reviews, but this product deserves it! Holy cow! I was going to go into the salon to brighten my hair up, but after discovering this product I cancelled my appointment. I'm totally in love! This shampoo is not drying at all and just after two washes I achieved my desired results! I can't recommend it enough!" —Rachael

    Get it from Amazon for $12.94.

    20. Tea tree oil that helps with rosacea, breakouts, acne, razor bumps, and so much more. Something for everyone!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is a great product! I've been being using this the past two weeks to reduce acne and it really works! You can see the change from one day to another: it reduces the color and the bumpiness of your acne. At night I apply it directly to each one of the breakouts. It not only helps with the acne you have, but also helps preventing any more breakouts." —Cliente de Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    21. A cold brew maker for whipping up the good stuff overnight! The infuser makes either one or two quarts of concentrated iced coffee, saving you a trip to the café, not to mention your hard-earned moolah.

    The cold brew maker is BPA-free, has a non-slip handle, fits into most fridge doors, and produces four servings of the good stuff.

    Promising review: "This is amazing! I bought this for a gift for my husband who drinks iced coffee all year long. He says it makes such a smooth tasting strong iced coffee. He gets two drinks out of each batch that he makes. It's easy to clean and can go in the dishwasher. Durable — I know as I'm clumsy and have dropped it several times without an issue. We are considering getting a second one!" —rnnichole

    AnaMaria Glavin / Via BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I have been using this twice a day for about a month now. After I cleanse my face, I use a cotton round and apply it all over my face and neck. I noticed reduction in redness and spots within two weeks! Just last night my boyfriend asked 'Did you already take your makeup off?' I had just cleansed my face and applied my Thayers. When I told him so, he said 'You look like you’re still wearing your makeup!' As someone who has always had some issues with acne and uneven skin tone, the reduction in redness is a god send! Definitely worth the cost to try it if you’re even slightly intrigued by this product’s abilities." —Ashley

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in three scents).

    23. A durable Hydro Flask, because there is but one golden rule in life: hydration is key.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is a great water bottle. I tested it by filling it with chilled water and taking it to the beach. It was a very hot day, the sun was beating down, and the sand was hot. I had the bottle out the whole time on the sand for several hours and the water remained very cold. I've also kept it in a hot car running errands on a 90+ degree day and again, the water stays refreshingly cold. I bought a second Hydro Flask for my desk at work, and the colors are so pretty. I bought one in mint and another in raspberry. It would also make a great gift. Highly recommend!" —AB

    Get it from Amazon for $28.44+ (available in three sizes and 16 colors).

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought this as a gift for my wife a few weeks ago — she was very skeptical when she opened the box and took it out, but since then she has used it every night and she absolutely loves it! It does help her relax and sleep better." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99+ (available in 10 weights/sizes and 21 colors).

    25. A Squatty Potty because *NEWS FLASH* it's helping thousands of people poop better. Not to be hyperbolic, but I love my Squatty Potty more than I love any human, and I'm not sorry!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I cannot recommend this enough. This little shelf has changed my life. I've been having bowel issues since my teenage years — I wish this had come into my life sooner. Every time I step off the toilet now I feel lighter, fresher, and like a new person." —MsNiters

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99, or for a more ~aesthetic~ throne, splurge on the clear one for $77.40.

    26. And a nose-saving bottle of Poo-Pourri toilet spray people swear helps keep their BMs on the DL.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "I have these sprays in every bathroom in my home. I also travel with them because you know how it is in a hotel with the bathroom right there by where you're sleeping. I also keep one at work, although I had to start hiding it in the bathroom because apparently other people love it as much as I do and decided to take it home with them. I highly recommend. So much more effective than the 'courtesy flush.' By the time you do that one, the problem is already 'out there.' With Poo-Pourri, it never has a chance. I haven't met a scent I didn't like so far. What a great idea!" —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99+ (available in six sizes and nine scents).

    27. A Vitamix for whipping up delectable smoothies, soups, nut butters, and much more, quickly and sooooo smoothly. If you've been thinking about getting one for years, maybe it's time to finally take the plunge.

    Promising review: "Dope blender. I pureed soup to a velvety texture in 30 seconds. Then made a lemon slushy. Super easy to clean and assemble. Fits under kitchen cabinet. I didn't think it was too loud. I highly recommend this blender. I was not provided with a free product — I'm just a dude who likes his new blender." —Bobby

    Get it from Amazon for $349.95 (available in three colors).

    This Vitamix also won best high-end blender from BuzzFeed Reviews! Congratulations to the Vitamix!
