    1. 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.


    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

    2. Trader Joe's Everything but the Bagel Seasoning that's — appropriately — delicious on E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G. If you don't live near a Trader Joe's, thank your lucky stars that literally everything is available on Amazon!

    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 $6.59.

    3. The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by real life angel Marie Kondo. Obviously, I can't recommend the Netflix show adaption highly enough, but the book will give you all the info you need to execute your own life-changing transformation.

    Promising review: "For literally 10 years I have been meaning to clean my stuff out, and only one hour of reading motivated me to take action. I cannot recommend this book highly enough! I am by no means ready for Hoarders, but when a friend came over and took a picture of my room to tease his neat-freak girlfriend I knew I had to do something. I have been making consistent progress and will invite her over when I am all done to see her shock at how organized I have become. I don't think most people realize what an emotional drain having junk all over has on them. It really is amazing at how much easier I can now breathe as this stuff goes away bit by bit. I am eternally grateful for finding this book." —Kent Bliven

    Get it from Amazon for $10.75 or find a copy at your local library.

    4. A Tub Shroom to save you time and money by preventing 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!

    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).

    5. 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 garnered it so much reviewer love. That's a lot of happy, streak-free eyeballs!

    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

    7. Baby Foot exfoliating peel that brave ~soles~ adore, despite the truly heinous photos. Many say it makes their feet feel "brand new," which really makes me laugh, but also sounds incredible.

    Caleb Chin /

    Promising review: "WOAH! It definitely works! Disgusting yet gratifying. Mine didn't REALLY start peeling until about day five and I'll admit I was really bad about pulling it off as I saw it coming as opposed to letting it slough off naturally, but it still worked great. As others have said, just make sure to soak daily for at least 10 mins. Made a big difference, especially as the skin started lifting off. No pain or discomfort at all (just don't peel anything that isn't already coming off naturally). Even the tops of your feet and toes where you don't think it's that dry are going to peel, so don't be surprised." —Wildflower

    Get it from Amazon for $24.07.

    8. Glossier Solution, which in a poll, 94% of users said made their skin clearer after four weeks of use. 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.


    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

    9. A Pop-Socket so you can finally stop dropping you phone on your face while watching YouTube videos laying down in bed. Don't pretend like you've never done that.

    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!

    10. A 3-in-1 avocado slicer. I know what you're thinking, "Why do I need this tool that literally does the job of a knife." Well, my dude, people say that this thing helps them perfectly halve, de-pit, and slice avocados easily and beautifully. Don't be a naysayer, and join them in their joyful superfood wonderland!


    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.

    11. 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 in-tact* that tool.,

    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." —Chick

    12. 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.

    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 $17+ (available in sizes 36DDD–46K and 14 colors).

    Check out one BuzzFeeder's full write-up in Hundreds Of Big-Breasted People Swear This DD+ Bra Is The Only One That Fits Comfortably.

    13. 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.


    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 them from Amazon for $11.88.

    14. Becoming by Michelle Obama so you can learn more about an iconic First Lady *and* keep up with the conversations all of your friends are having since reading it (not to mention looking cool while reading on the train).

    Promising review: "A window into her life so far, Michelle Obama gives us endearing, insightful, honest memories. From growing up in a working class household in Chicago, to leaving the White House residence, her story is unique and thought provoking. If you admire and respect the Obamas, you will like this book." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.50 or find it at your local library.

    15. An Instant Pot that, in case you haven't heard, the people love! Finally teach your mom what a "stan" is by explaining that it's how she feels about her favorite 6-in-1 appliance.

    The Instant Pot's 6-in-1 functions include: pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, sauté pan, steamer, and warmer. What a multitasker!

    Promising review:
    "I've had this for only two weeks and I swear I haven't touched my stove or pans. So easy to use and so many functions. You can sauté meat, make hardboiled eggs, rice and beans, and steamed vegetables in a matter of minutes. The Instant Pot community is large, and there are always recipes to be shared. So simple to use and clean. I've made anything from perfectly hard boiled eggs whose shells just fall off on their own, to soups, to Mongolian beef, and spaghetti! I am so glad I jumped on the Instant Pot bandwagon and cannot wait to purchase accessories in the future to make cheesecake and other things." —yestfl

    Get a from Amazon for $59.95+ (available in three-, six-, and eight-quart sizes).

    16. A Diva Cup for updating your old menstruation habits, making them more sustainable. It's not for everybody, but the people who swear by it love not being beholden to tampon change times, actually seeing what's coming out of their body, and just letting their cycle ~do its thing~.

    Cups only need to be changed every 12 hours, meaning you're free to go about your life! Cleanup during your cycle is as easy as washing it with Diva Wash or gentle soap between uses when possible, and post-cycle care requires boiling your cup to sanitize it. Need some period advice? Head to 37 Menstrual Cup Tips From People Who Actually Use Them.

    Promising review: "This is one of the best inventions ever. I want to scream to the world, 'ASK ME ABOUT MY CUP!!!' I won't, but seriously, this is by FAR one of the best things I've ever purchased. Such a cost-efficient solution to a problem we can't avoid, and the best part is I can't even feel it. Aside from the usual cramping, I don't feel like I'm on my period at all. It's super comfortable and I don't bleed NEARLY as much as I thought I did. I always purchased supers for the first two days of my period! Tampons are so misleading. I'm able to easily go the full 12 hours without having to worry about leaks, changing, discomfort or forgetting my tampons at home. This thing is a game changer." —Ashfont

    Get a size one cup from Amazon for $26.21 and a size two cup for $24.88.

    17. Tea tree oil that over 18,000 people have given a five-star review on Amazon! It makes sense, considering how well it can help with rosacea, breakouts, acne, razor bumps, and so! much! more!

    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 $7.99.

    18. An Echo Dot, because it feels like everybody has one of these little robot helpers these days. I've gotten so used to the convenience of using the dot at friends' houses that I've started asking Alexa to do things in my own apartment...where I don't even have one. Our phones are probably already listening to us anyway, so might as well! *Cue endless laughter and endless crying*!

    The Echo Dot can set alarms, make shopping lists, play music, dim the lights, tell you about the's a little scary how much it's capable of!

    Promising review: "This is the second Echo Dot for our household. The first I got last year as a Christmas present. We LOVE it. We use it to stream music from our playlists, to set timers, to ask questions and about the weather, and especially to make shopping lists. My kids can add stuff to the list while I'm at the store and my list in the Alexa App updates to show it! I really think that was my (personal) favorite feature with the Dot. With two Dots it's even better. My daughter has the only room upstairs, and she's the one that does most of the music streaming. So I bought her this Dot for Christmas. She can now stream her music by voice command. I also no longer have to scream at the ceiling or walk across the house to get her attention. I just say, 'Alexa, call upstairs' and bam, my daughter and I can speak normally. I also use it to make sure she's up in the mornings, I just tell Alexa to play wake up music upstairs." —Leah D.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    19. 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.

    20. A tube of Glossier's Cloud Paint for adding a dash of whimsy to your makeup routine with a simple dab of your fingers.


    I use Cloud Paint in the shade "Puff" literally everyday. Even if I don't do a full face, it makes me feel more put together and tbh just ~pretty~.

    Promising review: "I'm SO OBSESSED with these blushes! I use the colors Dusk and Beam. I love using Dusk on an everyday basis, it compliments my warm, light to medium skintone really well and makes my cheeks look so fresh and glowy. I like using Beam when I want a more bright cheek look. I like to apply the blush using my fingers. It gives my cheeks the perfect amount of color. GET THIS BLUSH! You won't regret it." —bittersweetmich

    21. A timeless KitchenAid stand mixer your mom and grandma have been swearing by for years! It's definitely an investment, but these are well-made and long-lasting machines you'll have, well, forever!

    The mixer has a five-quart stainless steel bowl and comes with a coated flat beater, a coated dough hook, a six-wire whip, and a pouring shield to help you whip up any delectable bake with ease.

    Promising review: "If you're trying to decide what brand mixer is right for you, stop now and purchase a KitchenAid. Yes, they're more expensive than other brands, but they last. And really, a mixer is an appliance you should only buy once in your life (my mom still has hers from the '70s and uses it often!). Not only does this appliance work as a mixer (it comes with a beater, whisk, and very useful dough hook), but I also use it constantly with the KitchenAid ice cream attachment. The KitchenAid pasta attachment is also easy to use with the mixer, as is the meat grinder. This mixer does the work for you and will make cooking and baking so much easier. You'll wonder how you ever survived without it!" —Susie Williams

    Get it from Amazon for $276.96+ (available in 44 colors).

    22. A tub of Aztec Secret Healing Clay Mask that long-time acne sufferers say basically vacuums out their pores, vastly improving their skin tone and texture without too much dryness.

    BuzzFeed Boldly

    Promising review: "This product is AMAZING. It's an official Holy Grail product of mine. I ideally use it once a week, and it feels as if angels themselves have taken the time, to delicately renew my skin with the magical touch of their wings. I wear foundation daily, have combination and sensitive skin, and require hypo-allergenic products. I truly feel this product is a part of how I maintain week after week breakout free. I mix with equal parts water and vinegar and use the sensitive skin time recommendation to avoid over-drying or any tenderness afterward. I moisturize after, and I'm good to go! I also find it works WONDERS as a spot treatment for the pimples that do happen to appear every-so-often. I love this stuff, use it often, and it still lasts FOREVER. Literally the best mask I've ever used." —S.L.P.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95. Don't forget the apple cider vinegar you'll need for mixing!

    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

    24. A humidifier and essential oil diffuser over 22,000 people have given a five-star review on Amazon. That's TWICE as many people as my hometown. Imagine — two towns of relaxed people with well-hydrated sinuses.


    Promising review: "I love this little diffuser. It is the perfect thing to have on a nightstand if you like to use essential oils to help you sleep. I was having a bout of insomnia and someone suggested I try lavender oil at night. I am a convert. This diffuser puts out a very, very fine mist which adds just a touch of humidity to help your sinuses while you sleep too. The lights are soft and colorful and I imagine would make a great nightlight for a small child. It's a really great value for the money and I've used it for HOURS a night every single night since I bought it without a single issue. Love it!" —Debbie in WS

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in three colors).

    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

    Promising review: "I wish I could give this thing 10 stars. I have suffered from dandruff since I was a teen. I have such oily hair I didn’t know what to do. I would brush my scalp to get rid of the dandruff until it bled. After buying this, NO MORE DANDRUFF. I was that awkward girl with flakes all over her shoulder. I could never wear black, but now I’m so grateful for this thing." —Elizabeth

    Yes, that's a THREE AND A HALF FOOT clog pictured on the right!

    Promising review: "For years I've been punching holes through debris with my traditional wire snake but not cleaning debris. Thanks to this gadget, removing gunk and debris is no longer a problem. I admittedly was skeptical when reading about this tool on Amazon, but I purchased one anyway. Now I'm a believer and have the photo to prove it. The tube of gunk I extracted with this little wonder was so big I called my wife in to show her what was lurking below the sink she uses. Highly recommended!" —Coffee Roaster

    Promising review: "I highly recommend this camera! I used it for Thanksgiving and everyone got a good kick out of it! Many commented they are so glad that they are back into style and love the photos! The film is easy to store, but it does take practice adjusting on how to take it. I will continue to use this baby from here on out!" —Song Bird

    29. Thayer's Witch Hazel toner to cleanse your skin while reducing redness, breakouts, and dullness. It also smells like roses, making it the perfect romantic gift from you to you.

    AnaMaria Glavan / 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

    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

    Promising review: "This console is so awesome! It seems like Nintendo hits it right on every console since the N64 — the Switch is another home run. The ability to dock or take it on the go is a huge convenience. Many nights I've wanted to continue playing, but don't want to stay out in my living room — no problem with the Switch! The motion controls take a little bit to get used to, but make it even more fun once you've figured them out. I'm 100% satisfied with my purchase as of today." —Ty C.

    34. Mike's Hot Honey whose sweet and spicy flavor profile have made it a unique crowd favorite. It's great on everything from pizza and sandwiches to ice cream and brownies, so get some and get creative.


    Promising review: "This is now a staple for my kitchen. How I cooked without it before, I'll never know. It makes the best vinaigrette ever, quick pan sauces for pork, and gives an unexpected zip to dozens of dishes. Does it come in gallons? Have given it as hostess gifts several times and everyone gets hooked." —Martha Ronemus

    35. A vitamin C serum that's the perfect product to try if you're looking to lessen dark circles, sun spots, redness, and breakouts.

    Promising review: "The results are unbelievable, Was a bit skeptical because all the reviews were from caucasian women. I was slightly worried that my skin would not respond as well but I was quite mistaken. With or without makeup, my skin is bright, smooth and my spots are disappearing. One other result I am sure a number of people have not noticed is that your palms get softer too. I guess the residue on the palms makes it soft and supple." —Mayowa O.

    36. A nose-saving bottle of Poo-Pourri toilet spray people swear helps keep their BMs on the DL. It has over eleven thousand reviews on Amazon, and the verdict is in: this stuff works.

    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 $6.97+.

    37. An Amazon Fire Stick because if you're still paying for cable in 2019...why? The Fire Stick makes *any* TV a smart TV and gives you easy access to all of your subscription services. Back-to-back viewings of the Netflix and Hulu Fyre Fest documentaries has never been so easy.


    Promising review: "I am in love with the Fire Stick. Once I received it I plugged it in, and it popped right up already connected to my Amazon account and ready to use. I use my Fire Stick everyday and am tempted to cancel my cable there's so much to watch on it. I'm getting one for each room." —Tekeishab

    38. A Vitamix for whipping up delectable smoothies, soups, nut butters, and much more, quickly and sooooo smoothly. There are Vitamix people and non-Vitamix people, and if you think you're the former, it's time to 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

    39. An Oculus Go, a personal VR headset that allows you to play games, watch movies, and hang out with pals, all in virtual reality. You're suspicions are correct. All of your friends are hanging out without you — IN CYBERSPACE.


    Promising review: "I always loved the idea of VR but could never be bothered to buy a PC (I'm a Mac user). It also sounded expensive for a gimmick. At $199 with no other requirements, it's an easy buy and is set up in five minutes. I've had tons of fun and have used it every day I've had it so far. Great concept, great execution! I showed it to a couple of friends and almost everyone wants to get one of their own. Would highly recommend this to anyone who is just a casual user like myself." —Simmenfl

    40. A Philips Sonicare electric toothbrush that studies show removes seven times more plaque than a manual one. With five modes for a personalized brushing experience, this is the tippy top of toothbrush technology.

    Promising review: "The Sonicare toothbrush is a work horse, there's no doubt about that. If you inspect the back of your teeth you can usually see a small layer of plaque. Well, the Sonicare toothbrush is your answer to the best at home cleaning. After about two days of brushing, my teeth were noticeably cleaner. My colleagues were asking me if I whitened my teeth. I can never go back to a manual toothbrush. 32,000 brush strokes a minute — think about that. If you care about how your teeth look, then this is a great investment." —Ozzy

    Get it from Amazon for $137+ (available in four colors and two styles).
