    Amazon has a list of products called "Movers and Shakers," which is pretty much fancy talk for things that are ~trending~.

    Here are some of the coolest and most useful things found on the list this week:

    1. A salad cutter bowl for enjoying a delicious (and nutritious) meal without the mess. Plus, it's been scientifically proven chopped salads taste better than regular salads. (I think.)

    The bowl features a handy "sink" base at the bottom to prevent juice spills from your produce. Plus, the bowl can easily be rotated using just two fingers thanks to a useful "Pulsator Design." Only takes about 60 seconds to cut up your goods for a meal. It's BPA-free and dishwasher-safe!

    Promising Review: "This is a great time saver. I put lettuce, tomatoes, and other items all in it at once and just cut with the guides. Super easy, fast, and a lot less messy. Very impressed." —Rebecca Hogan

    Price: $12.99

    2. A pack of six bamboo washcloths to help keep your little ones clean without fear of irritating their delicate, sensitive skin.

    Promising Review: "I wanted soft washcloths for cleaning my baby's face. I ordered these and also tried another type that received five star reviews on Amazon, as well. Bamboo Organics are far superior. Very soft and well-made, (like everything else I've ordered from them). The other brand's washcloths are getting runs in them and falling apart a bit. I will order these again." —JulieS

    Price: $12.99

    3. A long sleeve shirt that'll have you looking cute while feeling comfy. What more could you want?

    Promising Review: "The quality of material of this shirt surpassed my expectations for how inexpensive it is. It's not a hot garbage mess thrown together — the stitching holds. It's a semi-soft blend of fabric, and the patches aren't too stiff." —shelby

    Price: $16.99+ (available in six colors and sizes S–2XL)

    4. A side sleeper for the babes who are most content sleeping or resting in their parents' bed, and the parents who have been seeking a solution to this scenario.

    Sleeper features mesh sides so you can have a clear view of your little one, while allowing air to circulate and prevent overheating. It folds up so you can bring it on travels. It includes a mattress pad and a fitted sheet! Suitable for babes birth to when they begin to push-up or roll-over.

    Promising Review: "This is an amazing product. I have a baby who needs to sleep by us, or won't sleep at all. This sleeper makes it possible so the baby is safe on our bed and we don't have to worry about rolling on the baby. It is very sturdy!!" —Angela

    Price: $35.99+ (available in three styles)

    5. A pair of odor/moisture removers to prevent your shoes from smelling funky.

    They contain activated charcoal derived from sustainable coconut husks to absorb moisture to prevent mildew and bacteria build-up while eliminating odors. They're non-toxic and last up to about one year with proper care – just place 'em in direct sunlight for about an hour so the UV rays can re-charge them.

    Promising Review: "I was skeptical when I first saw these, however they really do the trick! I use my tennis shoes daily during my sweaty, high-cardio workout and these totally neutralize any scent in my shoes. They have no scent to them either which is a nice plus. I have put them out in the sun twice and they still work as well as when I first got them." —Emily North

    Price: $9.99 (available in four styles)

    6. A pack of 12 dairy-free coffee creamers that'll give your coffee the creamy, delicious taste you crave in the morning, without all the crappy additives.

    Nutpods are certified vegan, Whole30, OU Kosher, gluten-free, non-GMO project verified, and paleo-friendly.

    Promising Review: "I was dismayed when my doctor insisted that I go sugar- and dairy-free as I love coffee, but cannot drink it without creamer. I searched and searched for a dairy-free alternative, but only found the soy, almond, and coconut milk options. YUCK! By chance I came across nutpods and decided to give it a try. I love this product! It is the creamy texture I want and the flavor I crave. Definite home run and I vow to never run out." —A. Anson

    Price: $41.95 (available in two flavors)

    7. A daily planner so you can stay organized and stop being so fucking forgetful, damnit.

    Promising Review: "Perfect day planner — simple, yet has spots for daily tasks, monthly reminders, and a notes section on the margin and in the back of the book. Perfect for something I can carry around in my bag everyday." —srules

    Price: $9.99

    8. A pair of blending sponges to make your makeup look like nothing short of perfection.

    Promising Review: "These are the best blender sponges I have come across! Others seem hard or rough, but these are perfect! The shape is great, because it allows your concealer/contour/highlight to be easily reached and blended, (there are videos online from Real Techniques that explain which part of the sponge to use for different areas of your face). I use this to apply liquid foundation, and also to blend concealer." —Stef

    Price: $8.99

    9. A water filtration dispenser that'll not only get the yucky crap out of your drinking water, but will happily sit on the shelf in your fridge waiting to quench your thirst.

    The filter removes 96% of Mercury and 95% of various industrial pollutants. It greatly reduces the taste and odor of chlorine. Its slim design makes it optimal to place on a refrigerator shelf and a handle makes it easy to carry and re-fill. It holds up to 18 cups and one filter lasts for up to 40 gallons (approximately two months) of clean water. It's BPA-free and should be washed by hand with a little dish soap and warm water.

    Promising Review: "Our town has really awful, hard water. It tastes like old pennies and quarters have been sitting in your glass. We finally purchased this and it's been SO nice not to have to rely on buying gallons of filtered water. Definitely saving money in the long run. So far no mechanical issues and the water tastes good." —sharilee

    Price: $23

    10. A pair of fluffy pillows for resting your head on what might be the equivalent of clouds – and they're dust mite–resistant!

    Promising Review: "My wife and I prefer pillows that don't go flat so we really like these pillows. I also like the fact that they are resistant to dust mites as I am allergic to them." —J. Kinsey

    $32.99+ (available in two sizes)

    11. A floral dress to rock at the next party you attend, at the office (because it's definitely work appropriate), or just when you wanna wear a dress, because why the heck not!

    Promising Review: "Wow! Such a pretty dress. The color stands out and the fit is flawless. It's the best dress I’ve purchased from Amazon recently. The color scheme gives it an elegant look that is so attractive. Fabric is high-quality and not a cheap knockoff. Highly impressed." —AmazingWorld

    Price: $9.99 (available in 19 styles and sizes S–2XL)

    12. A pack of 10 organic chocolate hazelnut butter squeeze packets that'll provide a delicious Nutella-like taste in a vegan, gluten-free spread – great to bring on-the-go!

    @justins / Via

    Promising Review: "Wasn't sure if I'd like this product so these little pouches were a perfect little sample size! I even shared with some friends during the holidays. I love Nutella, but if you read the ingredients, it's a long list of junk. This is a great replacement, (not the exact same thing, but way healthier), that I feel good eating. Bought the big jar once I knew it was something I could enjoy often. I love it on healthy waffles and right out of the jar. These little packets would be great for work/school lunches!" —savvyshopper

    Price: $11.15

    13. A rose bouquet pop-up card perfect for gifting as an anniversary present, a birthday gift, for the love of your life on Valentine's day, or yourself – no judgment here.

    Promising Review: "Beautiful card, the pop-up action works great. Gave this to my fiancé on our five year anniversary and she was blown away!" —Robert ziemba

    Price: $13

    14. A mascara claiming to be better than sex so go ahead and give your eyelashes the best orgasm of their damn life.

    @toofaced / Via

    Promising Review: "This has become my new favorite mascara. It's the only one I wear day and night. I have very light and short eyelashes, and this mascara is great at lengthening them without being clumpy." —Anna

    Price: $24.50

    15. A pair of pan scrapers that'll get rid of leftover residue on your cookware that your sponges and scrub brushes just won't clean away.,

    Each scraper has four different-shaped corners so it works on pans in a variety of shapes and sizes. Be sure to use these only when the pan has cooled down to a warm temperature at least — they can melt from hot pan temps. Also, these are best designed for use with cast-iron pans, not non-stick. Plus, they're dishwasher-safe!

    Promising Review: "These work great! They are thin so they slide up under food that is stuck to the pan, but they are also durable. The different cut angles on the corners allows it to get in a variety of pots and pans. Great product!" —flyboyfromtx

    Price: $3.60

    16. A colorful toy organizer for de-cluttering all those toys you bought your little one, while livening up the space.

    Promising Review: "I honestly was not sure what to expect when I ordered this for my daughter's room, but I am very happy I did! My partner was afraid this would be too large, but it fits just perfectly in her room without taking up much space at all. Plus, it can hold all of her toys and then some! It was super easy to put together — all you need is a screwdriver and a couple of minutes, and the instructions are super clear about what goes where, so it's hard to mess it up." —Tia F

    Price: $32.99+ (available in four colors)

    17. A tunic top to pair with your fave jeans, leggings, skirts, no pants (lol), etc.,

    Promising Review: "Perfect fit and so cute with leggings. Long enough to cover your bottom, but not too long to where it looks messy. The style of the top is very slimming and the material doesn't cling to your body. I can't wait to get more colors!" —Beth Whitt

    $5.99+ (available in 23 colors and sizes S–3XL)

    18. A storage cube shelf that'll hold your books, clothes, decor, and more — not to mention it's really chic looking.

    Promising Review: "I got this for my mom who has a TON of books. This was perfect for her and she loves it! It's big, but lightweight, (can be lifted with one hand), yet strong enough to handle all the books I've placed in it and on top of it. It's easy to put together and it's overall a great product. Plus, it looks good! I highly recommend it!" —Tiffany S.

    Price: $21.99 (available in two finishes)

    19. A pack of 61 Tide Pods for cleaning your clothes – NOT FOR EATING AS A SNACK, PEOPLE.

    Guys, seriously all jokes aside, PLEASE do not eat these. If you're thinking about participating in this ridiculous challenge or looking to see what a pod would actually taste like, read this article on what will happen to your body if you consume detergent. And if you want some gummy candy to satisfy your craving, this 5 lbs. bag of gummy bears will SAFELY do the trick.

    Promising Review: "I love the convenience of these. Especially with the Downy. They get our clothes clean and have them smelling amazing. I cannot attest to the flavor, as I have enough brain cells to know that eating them is a poor life decision. If I ever have a brain lapse or get so unbearably hungry that they look appetizing, I'll report back on flavor. Don't count on it." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $17.51

    20. A copy of Kesha's Rainbow to have you feeling all the feels there are to feel. But, seriously, this album is amazing start to finish, and buying it is the most you can do to support a shoulda-been Grammy winner.

    Promising Review: "This album has changed my life and I don't say this lightly. It's about the only CD I've listened to for the past two months, especially when I'm feeling rough. From the first song until the last, it's gold. The sequence of play is chronological. The first song is a great opener for the album because seriously, 'don't let the bastards get you down.' The song 'Praying' starts out trembling and ends with a roar. I can't say enough good things about Kesha. We've never met and probably never will, but it's like she know my life. Her songs are truly a gift to 2018 and beyond." —Elena

    Price: $9.99 (available in three formats)

    How buying all these awesome products makes me feel, TBH:
