    Just 30 Random Products We Really Love

    A John Frieda hot air brush, a customizable fanny pack, an overnight acne treatment, and other products we (the BuzzFeed Shopping team) truly adore.

    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. An eyebrow razor that'll make it super simple to clean up your eyebrows yourself. Plus, it's way less painful than waxing and threading!

    BuzzFeed Editor Emma Lord holding the light pink Tinkle eyebrow razor

    "I generally don't go to salons for my eyebrows and also don't trust myself with anything that has the word 'wax' and 'at-home' in the product description, so these have been a godsend. I use them for my brows and they're not only super quick and effective, but I've personally never dealt with razor burn or any other kind of reaction you might get from shaving an unusual part of your human face. A lot of reviewers also mention using them for dermaplaning." —Emma Lord

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $4.50.

    2. A microwave egg cooker so you can whip up a high protein breakfast without needing to break out the skillet or turn on the stove.

    "I often forgo breakfast because I feel like I just don't have enough time to cook in the mornings. But then along came this gadget, and it changed everything. You just pour eggs and any fillings like cheese, veggies, or protein into the egg cooker. Mix it all up and microwave for two minutes. And there you have it, eggs in no time with no mess." —Hannah Loewentheil

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    3. The Comfy — a combination of a sherpa blanket and a hoodie that'll keep you feeling so warm, cozy, and — you guessed it — COMFY. Good luck! You're never gonna wanna take this thing off.


    I originally bought this for my mom who always gets cold at night when she's watching TV, and she loves it, but it may or may not have ended up in my room one night, and now belongs to me — oops. I LOVE this thing. It truly is so warm and so perfect for cold winter nights when I wanna reach that level of toasty warm my sweatshirts alone cannot accomplish. Plus, you can do things while wearing it! I mean, how else am I gonna keep the entire length of my arms warm while trying to play The Sims? I know it's summertime right now, but this is seriously so great to buy now and keep on-hand for the moment those chilly temps come along!

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in nine styles).

    4. Glass meal prep containers so you can make your food for the week ahead of time, and have some peace of mind that your food will stay fresh until it's time to eat.


    "These are by far the best food storage containers I've ever bought. I love how the airtight lids clamp and lock in place so I can take my food to go and know it won't spill during my commute. I also love how they have compartments, which is ideal for meal prepping because I can separate grains, vegetables, and protein. When I know I'm going to have a busy few days, I love cooking a big batch recipe on a Sunday night and then meal-prepping in these little containers for the week." —Hannah Loewentheil

    Get a pack of 10 from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in two colors).

    5. A pair of compressive, high-rise leggings that are super stretchy, squat-proof, and buttery soft. Oh, and they're made from 25 recycled water bottles so they're sustainable, too!

    Melanie Aman / BuzzFeed

    "Right off the bat, I was impressed by how buttery soft these leggings were. They're super stretchy (definitely squat-proof!) and supportive without being constricting. And at $68, they're a total steal given how high-quality they are. I usually wear them for low-impact workouts, like Pilates and yoga (and lounging on the couch), but they didn't let me down during high-impact HIIT cardio classes either. The material is really breathable so even though I'm sweating a lot during my workouts, the leggings don't get swampy. They're machine-washable and still look brand-new (no pilling here!). In fact, I liked them so much that I ended up getting a second pair to give the other ones a break." —Melanie Aman

    Be sure to check out the rest of Melanie's review of the incredible Girlfriend Collective leggings!

    Get them from Girlfriend Collective for $68 (available in five essential colors, four limited colors, three lengths, and sizes 2XS—6XL).

    6. An enamel pin so you can rep two of the best songs on Lover — "Cornelia Street" and "I Think He Knows." If these two aren't close to the top of your Lover song ranking, I may or may not be judging you.

    The pins
    The Fields Supply / Etsy

    Also judging you if "Cruel Summer" and "Death By A Thousand Cuts" aren't close to the top, but that's a conversation for another day.

    "I recently ordered several Taylor Swift enamel pins from Etsy, including this gorgeous one that's perfect for my jean jackets. The design with the intersection sign of two streets referenced on Lover is so clever. And 'Cornelia Street' usually gets all the fan love, but I'm so glad to finally see a reference to 'I Think He Knows.' Is this the right place to go into a speech about how 'ITHK' is an amazing and under-appreciated song of female sexual empowerment? No? Anyway, I saw this and said 'I want you, bless my soul.'" —Katy Herman

    Get it from The Fields Supply on Etsy for $13 (available in two colors).

    7. An acid peel formulated with caviar lime — an Australian fruit that's rich in AHAs to help brighten up and soften dull, stressed skin.

    The face peel

    It's free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates! To use, apply a generous amount to clean, dry skin. Be sure to avoid your eyes, lips, and any broken skin! Leave it on for 10—15 minutes, then rinse thoroughly and pat dry. You can use it one to two times a week as tolerated, and keep in mind that you may experience a slight tingle as it starts to work!

    "I recently got the chance to try this face peel and was actually shocked! The fact that it contains caviar lime acid and glycolic acid was a liiiiittle scary at first, so after doing a patch test on my arm, I applied the thinnest layer on just part of my face where I had some dark acne marks. It tingled slightly the first time, but the caviar lime smelled so amazing and felt so soothing. I left it on for 15 minutes and washed it off with cold water (as my former dermatologist instructed me to do when using strong treatments). HOLY WOW. My face felt insanely soft!! I know this is bad, but I couldn't stop touching my skin after that.

    It's been about a month and a half and I've been using this peel two to three times a week (though, you should start off by using it just once a week). My skin looks so much brighter and I've seen such great improvement in some dark acne marks that I have (yay!!). With other products, by the time I start making some progress fading old marks, I break out again and get NEW marks on top of those. This peel fades my marks quickly enough to slow down that never-ending cycle. I think this is the best my skin has looked in my adult life! I actually get excited to apply this mask because it smells good and always leaves me with instantly more supple skin. It just brightens my entire day when I see improvement, and I recently bought my second jar so I can continue to make progress." —Jasmin Suknanan

    Get it from Sephora for $95.

    8. A pair of platform sandals made with water-friendly materials with a cushiony yoga mat foot bed, as well as an elastic back strap for a snug fit. IDK about you, but if I could design my ideal comfy/cute sandals, these are exactly what they would look like.

    BuzzFeed Editor Mal Mower's sandals
    Mal Mower / BuzzFeed

    "I own these beauties and my toes are besotted. They are suuuper lightweight but feel substantial when you wear them and, because they're water proof, they're great in all weather. For sweaty-feet-havers like me, this makes breaking them in brilliantly easy." —Mal Mower

    Get them from Chooka for $24.99 (available in sizes 6—10).

    9. An electric candle lighter so you can ignite a flame in a way that's safer than using matches or a gas lighter. Plus, the bottom lock switch provides some extra peace of mind to those with kids, pets, or for those who plan to bring it on-the-go.

    BuzzFeed Editor holding the candle lighter
    Emma Lord / BuzzFeed

    "This also comes in other pretty colors, but I am especially partial to this one because I bought it for my parents (their kitchen is entirely pink and one of my favorite places on Earth), and this was SO EASY to use — not to mention super safe! I'm a big weenie about fire (lol, self-preservation) so I've always stuck to extended arm gas lighters, but this is much better for the environment (plus cuter), so I feel a lot better about using it." —Emma Lord

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in five colors).

    10. A Core meditation trainer to help guide your breathing, focus your attention, and leave you feeling more relaxed.

    John Mihaly / BuzzFeed

    This comes with the trainer, a wall plug/micro-USB cable, and a charging dock!

    “Finally, a vibrating device I can actually review! I've tried all number of meditation apps with little success. There was always something missing and I finally figured out what that is: a physical element. Core combines its Meditation Trainer (the round, buzzing, rosewood orb) with app-based on-demand classes and instructors. Charge the trainer (it'll last for two weeks), select a meditation from the app, and place your fingers on the biometric feedback pins to begin.

    Depending on the session type, the vibrations will guide your breathing or help you focus your attention. That's the physical element I mentioned. Having something to feel is the perfect distraction for keeping your mind from running off while breathing consistently. The app will also track your progress when it comes to how calm and focused you are during your sessions as well as chart your heartbeat.

    I'll say this, I feel different after I use it, calmer, more relaxed. I try to do 20 minutes a day. App upgrades and new sessions are available at an added cost. I think I finally found the thing that does the thing!“ —John Mihaly

    Get it from Core for $229.

    11. A hot air brush so you can dry AND style your damp hair with one convenient styling tool. It's like getting a salon blowout all without having to leave your house!

    Rachel Dunkel / 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-inch version is perfect." —Rachel Dunkel

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

    12. An acne-drying treatment to simply apply to pimples, and then just sit back, relax, and let it work its magic!

    A person holding the tube of the acne drying treatment with a pea-size amount on their finger

    "I've never used a more effective overnight treatment — I put a visible layer over any budding pimples before bed, and usually by morning they're calmed and quelled." —Rachel Dunkel

    Get it from Versed for $16.99.

    13. A scented candle with a crackling wick that'll make for the perfect addition to all of your cozy days. Now all you need is a hot drink, a good book, and some comfy clothes.

    The candle in the Fireside scent

    "I've been burning WoodWick candles for years and, I must say, you haven't lived until you've lit one of the bad boys up, put on your most snuggly sweats, and curled up with a good book." —Heather Braga

    "I've burned a variety of these mainstream jars over the years, but come back to them every so often because they're indeed that good. I've *also* tried several other brands with wood wicks that seem to either barely work or burn way too fast. But no one does it like Woodwick, which is also very good because of that name (lol). That lil' wick makes such a comforting crackling noise — a la an actual burning fire — without making my hair smell like smoke or tapping into my Girl Scout skills for building a fire. Clearly a lazy win-win." –Elizabeth Lilly

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in seven scents).

    14. A pair of Teva sandals that are comfy and sturdy enough to get you through days spent outdoors, partaking in water activities, or just running errands!

    The sandals in the sunflower color

    Plus, they're vegan!

    "When I was on vacation in Greece last summer, I absolutely lived in these. They're incredibly comfy, super lightweight, perfect for wet and dry feet, and made me very confident clambering up and down rocks for photo ops with my friends. When they expressed concern about my clumsy self, I just replied 'these Tevas make me sure-footed like a goat.' I have the white but am VERY MUCH eyeing the bright green and pink too." —Maitland Quitmeyer

    Get them from Teva for $40 (available in eight colors, and sizes 5–11), or Amazon for $31.10+ (available in six colors, and sizes 5—11).

    15. A Diaper Genie — an odor-controlling diaper pail that can hold up to 270 diapers before needing to change out the bag. Looking after a new baby is already a lot of work, we just wanna help make things easier for you.

    "The Diaper Genie is a very controversial product, especially if you read some of the Amazon reviews. I'm here to tell you that it's been a part of our baby's life since his first diaper change at home. It's not perfect but it is close. Once that diaper is slam-dunked in there, I only have to change the bag (about once a day). That's the time-saver right there. Yes, you will get hit with the smell when you open it, but just don't get too close. Otherwise, all odors are contained when the lid is closed. Another thing I don't ever have to think about (other than ordering bag refills)." —John Mihaly

    Get it from Amazon for $37.44+ (available in five colors).

    16. A divided skillet that'll allow you to cook all the different parts of your meal at the same time in one pan!

    The sectioned skillet with some different cooking in each section

    "This handy divided skillet saves you from the hassle of cleaning multiple pots and pans. It also makes it so that you don't have to juggle different burners on the stove. I love this skillet when I'm cooking a protein like chicken or salmon and vegetable sides because I can do it all at the same time, then I can clean up all my mess in one fell swoop." —Hannah Loewentheil

    Get it from Amazon for $51.87.

    17. A picnic table squirrel feeder so the little guys that hang out in your yard now have a nice spot to sit and actually enjoy their food. I mean really, can you think of anything better than looking at your window and seeing one of the below images? I can't.

    Delgado Handcrafted Treasures, Michelle Braga

    "I recently gifted this to my brother-in-law who had already managed to gain the trust of his local squirrels (by leaving peanuts out for them in a bowl in front of his house). It's been DELIGHTFUL to receive photos from him of the bushy-tailed creatures snackin' away. This really is the gift that keeps on giving." —Heather Braga

    Get it from Delgado Handcrafted Treasures on Etsy for $27.

    18. A featherweight, compact camping chair that you'll be able to easily carry and bring with you on all of your outdoor excursions.

    A reviewer photo of the chair in black

    "I have this chair and it's great! It really is super-duper light, folds up nice and small so it's easy to tuck into a day pack, and it's simple to put together. A perfect outdoor luxury item." —Rachel Dunkel

    Get it from Amazon for $119.95 (available in three colors).

    19. A medical kit to pack on your next outdoor day trip, so just incase you or your loved one sustains a minor injury, you'll be prepared with the essentials.

    A person holding the medical kit

    "My partner and I have this medical kit and it always comes with us on hikes. It's small, light, and completely unobtrusive! It has many different kinds of bandages, a splinter and tick remover, bug bite relief wipes, aspirin, and more!" —Rachel Dunkel

    Get it from REI for $15.

    20. An absorbent, lightweight waffle robe that'll feel so comfy post-shower/bath, you may never wanna put on real clothes again.

    A person wearing the robe in the smoke color

    "I have this robe and it's truly wonderful. It's great for when you leave the shower but aren't ready to put on actual clothes. The texture and material (100% Turkish cotton) help it absorb water and then dry quickly. I highly recommend sizing up so you can get swallowed up in comfort." —Bek O'Connell

    Get it from Brooklinen for $98 (available in three colors, and sizes XS/S—XL/2XL).

    21. An anti-chafe stick to glide on areas where you typically chafe prior to activity to prevent that uncomfortable, painful burning sensation from happening.

    The anti-chafe stick
    Free People

    "This product has actually changed my life — no exaggeration. I used it in Florida during a 95-degree heat wave and experienced NO pain or discomfort. This truly works — I can finally wear dresses in the summer without shorts under them!" —Heather Braga

    Get it from Free People for $12.

    22. A warmer that'll make it easy to heat up and keep tortillas, pitas, wraps, flat breads, and more warm for up to an hour.

    The warmer

    "I gave my mom this tortilla warmer a few years ago and she uses it for everything from dinner rolls to hot dog buns. And it keeps its contents nice and warm for as long as your meal lasts! Oh, and it was featured on America's Test Kitchen as a solid pick (in case you think I'm a liar). In case you've never heated up tortillas on the stove top (what I mean by the proper way), here's an YouTube video tutorial. It's totally game-changing." —Elizabeth Lilly

    Get it from Amazon for $14.21.

    23. A pair of lightweight, cushiony running shoes so your feet can stay nice and comfy while working out.

    The sneakers in gray and purple

    "I've gone through a lot of running shoes in my life, but these I especially love because they are ridiculously lightweight and have just enough cushion to feel supported on runs without feeling too squishy. They're so comfortable that it's pretty much the closest I've come to running while feeling like I'm not wearing shoes at all. They've also pretty much stopped any knee pain I used to get while running, as an added bonus!"—Emma Lord

    Get them from Amazon for $69.83+ (available in 10 colors, and sizes 2—12).

    24. A fanny pack that comes in a variety of fun colors and can be personalized with patches of your choice. Sorry to all of your other bags, you'll want to use this 24/7 now.

    @stoneyclover / Via, Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

    "Since entering quarantine and no longer having access to the gym, I've (bravely) taken up running outdoors. Running is no joke! It's hard, but also very rewarding. One of the things I've struggled with is having somewhere to put my phone now that it's hot and I'm not wearing a jacket. Enter: the Stoney Clover fanny pack. It's super cuuuuute, can be personalized with a variety of patches, and truly stays in place while running. I'm obsessed with mine and will definitely wear it while running errands as well." —Heather Braga

    Get it from Stony Clover Lane for $88+ (available in 14 colors, and customization with patches is extra).

    25. A 3-in-1 night serum made with an AHA/BHA/gentle flower acid blend, hyaluronic acid, and a proprietary honey blend to help resurface, hydrate, and clarify skin ALL while you sleep!

    BuzzFeed Editor Sarah Lee's bottle of Farmacy's Honeymoon Glow
    Sarah Lee / BuzzFeed

    To use, simply apply a generous layer (about one or two pumps) to clear skin at night. It's recommended to start using two to three times a week, and building up to more frequent use if your skin can tolerate it. You may experience some slight tingling!

    "Farmacy's Honeymoon Glow is my favorite go-to fix for when I breakout due to stress, hormones, etc. I’ve been using it a lot these days (at least once a week) as an overnight treatment and it’s been a life-saver. My zits reduce in size, so I'm less likely to pick at it — thus avoiding acne scars! I’m also not positive but I have seen a reduction in blackheads on my nose. When I first used this product it did have a slight tingle but it quickly went away! To adjust to the tingle, for the first couple of times I used this mask as a wash-off mask to get my face adjusted to it but I’ve learned that the real work is done when left overnight! It may be a bit pricey, which is why I reserve it for times when I break out a lot or need a little pick-me-up before an event. I've had this product for a while because all I need each time I use it is one pump, so it'll go a long way!" —Sarah Lee

    Get it from Sephora for $58.

    26. Silicone poaching cups so you can easily whip up poached eggs in the microwave next time you wake up craving Eggs Benedict.

    The egg poaching cups

    "Poaching eggs can be a bit of a pain, but this silicone poaching cup makes it so simple. Best of all, you can use it in the microwave so you don't even have to wait for the water to boil. When I don't have a lot of time to make breakfast, these come in very handy, and when I'm feeling lazy at night, eggs are always one of my go-to's. I'll just put a poached egg on avocado toast, in a bowl of ramen, or on top of pasta and it instantly makes my meal look and taste more gourmet." —Hannah Loewentheil

    Get it from Amazon for $11.29 (available in two colors).

    27. An adorable pair of socks you should be adding to your cart right now. For fox sake, stop reading this and go buy them!!!

    Simple Days / Etsy

    "Truly, who gave these socks the right to be so cute?? I was probably stuck on this seller's shop for an hour trying to decide which ones to buy. I'm literally wearing the fox socks right now as I type this. Nothing makes me happier than sneaking a peek at my feet and seeing my little ankle foxes say hello. They are also quite cozy and VERY CUTE with sneakers, which are the only kind of shoe I wear." — Emma Lord

    Get them from Simple Days on Etsy for $8.99 (available in three colors).

    28. Curtains featuring an elegant top-knot at the top that'll make the perfect addition to any room with windows in your living space.,

    "I fell in love at first sight with the elegant knot at the top of the curtains, which is easy to tie IRL (two seconds and you're literally done). They came in an extra-long length for my floor-to-ceiling window and make my room look super sophisticated. Also? They are AFFORDABLE AS ALL HECK. Now, I plan to buy two more! Aside from a mattress I adore, this is my favorite Amazon purchase in my entire Amazon-purchasing LIFE. FYI, I ordered these in the spice red to match a quilt I own and well, 'perfect' isn't even the best word to describe it." —Marquaysa Battle

    Get it from Amazon for $23.15+ (available in 11 colors, five sizes, and three styles).

    29. A shearling slingback sandal for the SOFTEST, COMFIEST sandals that'll ever brace your feet. BRB, going to order them in every color.

    The sandals in the white and black colors

    "I bought these in black and they are delightful — and the ombre red is very much calling my name. They're called 'Fluff Yeah' and that's exactly what I said when I first tried them on.

    Oh, and btw they have over 4,000 reviews on Nordstrom." —Maitland Quitmeyer

    Get them from Nordstrom for $99.95 (available in nine colors, and sizes 5—12).

    30. A kick and play piano that'll keep your famous musician in the making entertained, and honestly, will probably keep you pretty entertained as well. You're welcome.

    A baby playing with the kick piano in their crib

    "This was one of the first toys I bought our son and almost a year later it's still a hit for him (and us). The off-brand Idina Menzel that sings all of the tunes about Purple Monkey and Green Froggy should probably receive one of those Grammys they don't televise — she's that good. These songs will probably never leave my brain but I'm totally OK with that. 'You're gonna clap, clap, clap your hands!'" —John Mihaly

    Get it from Amazon for $17.39.
