    29 Products That Are Splurge-Worthy, But Very Practical

    I pinky promise a $70 Snuggle Puppy kit is actually worth it.

    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 exfoliating facial cleansing brush for those whose most dreaded times of day are having to wash their face. Dare I say, this may make it...fun?

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    Check out our review of the incredible FOREO LUNA Mini 2.

    Promising review: "I dried my face with a white towel and there was not a speck of makeup left on the towel, and I didn't have a drop of mascara raccoon-eye look left on my face. This is the cleanest my face has ever been." —hine0108

    Get it from Amazon for $101.15+ (available in eight colors).

    2. An Instant Pot that'll pretty much become your new favorite gadget — this thing is a pressure cooker, a slow cooker, a rice cooker, a steamer, a sauté-r, a yogurt maker, and a warmer all in ONE.

    Amazon

    It can prepare food up to 70% faster than other methods. It can keep food warm automatically for up to 10 hours, and there are three temperatures for sautéing and slow-cooking. The inner cooking pot, lid, and steam-rack are dishwasher-safe! Check out our write-up about the incredible Instant Pot!

    Promising review: "This is quite possibly the coolest, most versatile kitchen gadget I’ve ever owned. I love it so much that I’ve purchased two more for friends and relatives. What can it do? I think the real question is 'What can’t it do?' I truly believe you could replace every cooking appliance (including your oven and stove top) and do EVERYTHING in the Instant Pot. I purchased two sizes for my own use: the three-quart (which is my almost-every-day workhorse for two person dishes) and the eight-quart (which I bring out to handle my dinner party dishes). Everything I’ve tried has been fabulous. In the realm of kitchen appliances, there is no better investment than the Instant Pot. Highly recommended!!!" —Stereoman

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99+ (available in three sizes).

    3. An adjustable, large standing desk for those who get easily tired from sitting down ALL.DAY.LONG.

    Amazon

    Features a single-handle design so it can be easily adjusted with one-hand, and without force. It has a full-sized keyboard tray with a deeper work surface to fit larger keyboards, a mouse, a mousepad, and a quick-release design so it can be easily removed when doing things that don't require a keyboard or a mouse. Plus, it has 12 different height levels!

    Promising review: "I compared it to other adjustable tabletop standing desk kits and chose this one because it was wider than most. I also love that the keyboard tray is large (and detachable). Furthermore, it goes up quite high which I like because I am on the taller side. It easily adjusts to many heights, though. Another great thing about this is that the handles for adjusting the height are in the FRONT, which is nice because you don't have to bend awkwardly and hurt your back to raise it or lower it. It adjusts very fluidly without strain. It is very easy to raise or lower. I use this with a large laptop and computer monitor sitting on top and still have plenty of space in front to put a notebook should I like to take notes while working. I'm very happy with my purchase and am enjoying the benefits of being able to sit or stand as needed while working at home or even playing video games. My doctor actually recommended that I purchase one because I have low back pain and sitting for too long aggravates it. Getting up to take a break helps some, but isn't always conducive to getting a lot of work done. This makes it so I can quickly raise it, keep working, and stand for even longer periods than small breaks throughout my day." —Amanda W

    Get it from Amazon for $199.99+ (available in two sizes).

    4. An automatic pet feeder you can time to feed your pet throughout the day. Sometimes you want to binge-watch your favorite Netflix series or take a nice long nap without the thought of hungry, sad eyes guilting you.

    A reviewer photo of their cat eating food out of the automatic feeder.
    amazon.com

    You can schedule up to four automated feedings a day thanks to the built-in programmable timer. You can control food portions from 2 teaspoons to 4.5 cups per feeding. You can also record a message for your pet, like words of encouragement! The main food storage compartment can hold up to 20 cups of food. This requires three D batteries, which aren't included, but you can get some here.

    Promising review: "We LOVE it. It's worth EVERY DOLLAR. We have two cats. Now we don't need to worry about feeding them every day or leaving the house for a couple days. Just need to set proper meals time and portions. Cats are not scared of it. They run to it when it starts. I recorded my voice, calling them to eat. Food is fresh. It is not easy to open the container, so cats CAN NOT open it. I'm sure. I recommend it to all my friends and pet lovers." —Yuliya 🇺🇸

    Get it from Amazon for $79.95.

    5. Finishing Touch Flawless Legs for removing hair in a painless, seamless, and simple way that is a million and one times better than subjecting yourself to shaving or waxing.

    A reviewer showing that their left leg is hairy, but their right leg is hair-free after using the device
    amazon.com

    It features 18-karat gold-plated heads to contour every curve on your leg. It also has a built-in LED light to make it easy-to-see and a rechargeable lithium-ion battery. BTW, this is solely for use on legs, do NOT use under your arms! PS – I'm personally a huge fan of the Finishing Touch eyebrow hair remover. I have extremely sensitive skin, and I was constantly leaving eyebrow waxing appointments with red skin, peeled skin, sometimes my eyelids would literally start bleeding. I couldn't even keep my eyes open. It makes cleaning up my eyebrows SO easy, and legitimately pain-free. Not even an ounce of pain, no joke. And they also make a tool for general hair removal, that's good to use in places like your upper lip!

    Promising review: "LOVE IT! This is now my favorite hair remover. It's so easy and comfortable to use, leaving my legs soft and smooth from top to bottom. There was no discomfort or irritation at all. Smoothly gliding around/over ankles, back of the knees, and blind curves. I have found using this is actually a relaxing experience." —Jez

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    6. A KitchenAid stand mixer with a wire whip, burnished flat beater, spiral dough hook, and pouring shield attachments to use in all of your baking adventures. But the fun doesn't stop there, you can purchase additional attachments like a spiralizer, a pasta roller/cutter, a slicer/shredder, a pasta press, and more!

    The KitchenAid stand mixer in red
    Amazon

    Features a 5-quart stainless-steel mixing bowl that has the capacity to mix enough dough for nine DOZEN cookies or four loaves of bread. It comes with a coated flat beater, a coated dough hook, a six-wire whip, and a one-piece pouring shield. Plus, the flat beater and dough hook are dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "Hands down this is the best blender on the market. It has multiple tools which enable you to do many tasks in the kitchen. The mixing capability is superior to all other mixers, especially the old hand-held models. This mixes everything so well that now it's hard to make a mistake when blending things because it does such a great job. It's quiet, and you can set it and go attend to other tasks while it works away." —Tie Dye John

    Get it from Amazon for $439.99 (available in various colors).

    7. A jewelry cleaning machine that'll make your possessions look like they're a worth a million bucks all over again, just like they deserve.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This machine is good for cleaning jewelry, glasses, watches, hygiene items, stationary, silver items with dirt accumulation, and other items like coins, keychains, kitchen utensils, and more! They recommend not using it to clean glasses and sunglasses with pre-existing scratches and cracks in the coating, tarnished silver items, and jewelry containing loose stones or soft/porous stones (ex: pearls, emeralds, amber, and opal). The machine has a three minute cleaning cycle and an auto shut-off feature!

    Promising review: "I ordered this product based on the great reviews and I was not disappointed. My ring center stone is a white sapphire and gets dirty extremely quickly. I've tried different cleaners and even taking it to mall jewelers, but they could never get it as clean as the jeweler we bought it from, (that's over an hour and a half away). Because of this, my ring would get so dirty to the point of not even wanting to show it off. This little guy, with some Blitz Gem and Jewelry Cleaner, made a HUGE difference. I ran it a handful of times because of how dirty it was and can't believe how shiny it is now. Very pleased with this purchase!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

    8. A PhoneSoap to clean all the yucky germs off your phone, because — news flash! — you bring your phone everywhere with you, so it's germ-y and deserves a good cleaning, OK?!

    The PhoneSoap in aqua
    @phonesoap / Via instagram.com

    We recently purchased a PhoneSoap for our house, and I have to say, it's really great! It's so easy to use! You just put in your phone, your keys, credit cards, cash, etc., closet the cover, and in about 10 minutes, it's clean! It's much easier and a lot less wasteful than having to wipe down everything with wipes. Plus, during this time of life, it gives extra peace of mind that things we touch and use regularly are sanitized after running out to do errands.

    Promising review: "What a perfect gadget for getting your phone clean. After touching who knows what while commuting to work, and it being that time of year everyone around you gets sick, this comes in handy. After the first use it looked great, and then I wiped it down with the sponge that came with it. I feel so much better about using my phone now." —Crystal Gardner

    Get it from Amazon for $79.95.

    9. A pro-collagen cleansing balm to help leave your skin feeling soft, nourished, and clean.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    This balm is infused with elderberry, starflower, and optimega oils as well as algae padina pavonica, PLUS a blend of nine essential oils to help your skin feel clean and nourished. It also comes with a soft cleansing cloth. To use, simply warm it into your palms and massage it over your face and neck with light circular massage movements, then moisten your fingers, and continue massaging. To remove, wipe with a warm, damp cotton cleansing cloth. It can also be used as a face mask! To do this, apply a teaspoon of it to the face and neck, massage it in gently with your fingers, relax for 10 minutes, and then hold a warm, damp cleansing cloth over your skin, and gentle wipe away.

    Promising review: "I'm hooked! My skin is acne-prone, oily, and super sensitive. I usually alternate between Murad Clarifying Cleanser and Philosophy Purity Made Simple. I can use the aforementioned with the balm, or just the balm on its own. Using the cloth also makes it go the extra mile. Deep cleans, softens, and smooths the skin. Huge bonus: it smells like spa heaven!! I've been recommending to everyone! Even my husband loves it, and that's saying something!!" —Teeniebkln

    Get it from Amazon for $64.

    10. A personalized cutting board you can get customized with a recipe of your choosing! It's the perfect way to meal prep, add a special touch to your kitchen, and have a cheat sheet at your disposal!

    Morning Joy Co. / Etsy

    To place your order, take a photo of your recipe (or whatever it is you may want to get engraved, be sure to follow the instructions on the product page for more info!), and send your photo via Etsy Conversations or e-mail to the provided address on the product listing page with your name and order # as the subject line. Morning Joy Co. is a Black-owned Etsy shop that specializes in custom laser-cut and engraved home decor. Currently, their shop has just these cutting boards listed, but be sure to follow and turn on their Instagram notifications for future shop updates!

    Promising review: "This shop has wonderful customer service. They sent a proof and photos showing each step of my order and they were able to lay out the custom engraving exactly how I wanted it. The cutting board is perfect and it made a wonderful gift! I highly recommend this shop." —Ashton

    Get it from Morning Joy Co. on Etsy for $69+ (available as either one-sided or two-sided).

    11. A Kindle Paperwhite so you can enjoy your favorite reads from anywhere. Bonus: It's easy to read even when it's super sunny outside AND it's waterproof. So, this is perfect to bring along as you soak up all the delicious weather early autumn has to offer.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This year, I am traveling to many different countries and have been reading more than I have ever been. I did not want to take physical books with me on trips for the obvious reason that it takes up space and weighs down my luggage. That’s when I decided to see about the kindle paper white. Man, am I pleasantly surprised by this device. It’s compact, portable, really minimizes glare, and the backlight is phenomenal for reading in different lighting. In fact, I can now read in the dark without keeping my husband awake with a reading light." —LinaRi

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99+ (available in four colors, and two storage capacities).

    12. A sous vide cooker to help you make restaurant-worthy meals with minimal effort. So minimal you don't even have to be in the kitchen while your food is cooking. I'm not kidding.

    A person opening up a message on their phone that the food they cooked with the sous vide is now ready
    Amazon

    The temperature range is 32–197 degrees Fahrenheit. The cooker can be controlled right from your phone, so you don't even have to stay in the kitchen while cooking. It also provides cooking notifications, and stays connected through Bluetooth from up to 30 feet away. Plus, you get access to over 1,000 recipes, so you'll have inspiration for yummy meals! Get the Anova app here.

    Promising review: "Since I started cooking sous vide, my family says my cooking has gone to a new level. I started with the original Anova, and just recently picked up this Nano. The Nano is awesome because it's much smaller vs. the first Anova, making it easier to store in a drawer or something. It sounds trivial but by making it easier to grab. Setup is so much quicker, and I can cook a beef roast for 30 hours without adding ANY water. If you're just starting out in sous vide, I recommend this cooker." —Jeff Nichols

    Get it from Amazon for $129.

    13. A temperature-controlled mug for brewing coffee/boiling tea on-the-go, AND also keeping your hot drinks at your desired temperature alllllll day long so you don't have to waste time re-heating!

    A person pouring coffee into the black mug
    Amazon

    The battery inside the mug is meant to last all day, but can be plugged in to charge! It includes the rechargeable battery and portable charging base. You can choose any temperature between room temp and boiling, and you can download a free app to control your mug's temperature right from your phone! It also has one-touch options for tasks like brewing green tea and cooking freeze-dried food.

    Promising review: "I usually only write reviews on products that don't work or if they are built cheap. NOT the case with my Cauldryn — I had a feeling I was going to like it as soon as I saw the box that had all of the features listed on it. Once I used it, I knew I made a great choice. I'm using it for hot coffee, warm soup, and cold iced tea. Can't wait to take hot chocolate to football games this fall. They even printed the instructions in large type, so I don't need my reading glasses. I'm buying one for my daughter before she permanently borrows mine!" —Curtis Underwood

    Get it from Amazon (the mug, blender, and percolator set) for $149.

    14. An air purifier to help keep allergens like pet hair, dander, dust, and more from contaminating the air you breathe at home.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Features an advanced three-stage filtration system: the pre-filter, the true HEPA filter, and the high-efficiency activated carbon filter to help capture allergens, pet hair, dander, smoke, mold, odor, and large dust particles. Overall, it boasts that it can remove 99.97% of airborne contaminants in your home. It can also serve as a night-light at night with two different brightness settings.

    Promising review: "After having used this for a few months I can confidently say how great this air purifier is. With the wildfires, the air quality in Oregon has been very unhealthy and at times hazardous. Combined with the heat we have no choice but to leave our windows open or the air conditioner running. We also have hardwood floors so the dust, dander, and pet hair gets kicked up very easily. This air purifier has made a world of difference! No smoke smell in the room we run it in and I don't have to worry as much about my son constantly breathing in the smog." —Trashcat

    Get it from Amazon for $88.55.

    15. A Dyson vacuum that can easily transform between being a cordless stick vacuum and a handheld vacuum, so it's versatile in cleaning just about every part of your home — even the ceiling.

    Amazon

    This is a cord-free vacuum! It can run for up to 30 minutes when using a non-motorized tool. It requires being charged for a minimum of 3.5 hours before first use! Plus, it has a hygienic emptying bin, because we don't think you should have to touch the yucky stuff you're suctioning up. It can be quickly transformed into a handheld vacuum! Be sure to check out our write-up of this amazing Dyson vacuum.

    Promising review: "I’m a dog-lover and my wife is not. Over the years, she has graciously agreed to have golden retriever with the big downside being the amount of shedding. The hair everywhere drives her nuts. Enter this vacuum: it has revolutionized pet ownership in our household! We have a nice canister vacuum, but it’s heavy, and it’s a hassle to get out. So, that meant we often let dog hair accumulate and didn’t vacuum every day. This vacuum is so lightweight, so simple to use, and so effective at picking up dog hair that we take it down from its handy wall mount and use it a couple times a day. My wife’s stress levels have dropped dramatically! This is a great vacuum and I highly recommend it, especially if you are constantly battling pet hair." —Ron Watts

    Get it from Amazon for $266.48.

    16. A Snuggle Puppy that's basically a miracle solution to helping ease your pup's loneliness and separation anxiety — it's especially perfect for those crate-training their furry bbs.

    Samantha Wieder / BuzzFeed

    "Back in June, my family made the wonderful decision to add a puppy to our family. Bailey was just shy of turning 2 months when we first brought him home, and we decided to crate train him to help prevent accidents during the day and night until he'd become house-trained. The first night home he slept like a DREAM, and we were certain we had hit the jackpot... until the second night when he cried loudly for six consecutive hours even when we'd come downstairs to try and calm him down. Thanks to advice from the internet and family friends, we quickly purchased the Snuggle Puppy kit, and it immediately helped to calm him down (picture on the left of him sleeping next to it at 2 months old). To use it, you take this little red heart beat-like ticker, turn it on, and put it inside of the toy, Velcro it shut, and it's meant to make your pup feel as if they're not alone inside the crate. He started sleeping through the night, was more relaxed during the day, and it made everyone in the house feel so much more relieved. It blew our expectations out of the water.

    Bailey is 5 months now and no longer sleeps in his crate because he's house-trained. He also doesn't snuggle up to the puppy for comfort like he did when we first bought it for him, but he LOVES playing with the puppy, as well as the other toys and the blanket that come with the kit. It's basically his new favorite chew/fetch toy (picture on the right of him, at almost 4 months old, chewing it), which obviously wasn't the intention, but my dog is SO happy when he has his Snuggle Puppy by his side. The price tag for the kit is definitely more than we wanted to spend on something we weren't sure would work, but I can fully attest two months later that it was the absolute best purchase we made for him! If you're considering getting a puppy, or your sanity is running low from a new puppy who suffers from separation anxiety or won't stop crying, I highly recommend getting this!" —Samantha Wieder (aka ME!)

    Get it from Amazon: the Snuggle Puppy for $39.95 (available in four colors), or the Snuggle Puppy kit for $69.99 (available in two colors).

    17. A Nest Learning Thermostat that'll literally learn your temperature patterns and control the thermostat in your house accordingly throughout the day and night, plus it'll help lower energy bills, so you're not using too much AC or heat at times when it's not needed.

    Amazon

    This amazing product will learn your temperature habits and automatically adjust the room temperature to help you save $$!! It has an easy-to-read, light up display, AND if you have an Alexa device, it works with Alexa voice control! Download the Nest app here.

    Promising review: "Love my Nest! Installation was very simple, and it's been working great. Our first week (when it 'learned' our habits) fell during a transition week in the fall when we alternated between the AC and the heat. The system was still able to put together a fairly good pattern for us. The app is also very easy to use." —MDS

    Get it from Amazon for $223.98+ (available in seven colors).

    18. A nonstick sectioned skillet for making all the different components of your meal in one convenient place, all on the same stove burner. My apologies to all of your other pans now feeling left out and underappreciated.

    A reviewer cooking various parts of their meal in the sectioned skillet
    amazon.com

    Features five compartments. It only requires one burner, and it's nonstick and stain-resistant. Plus, it features double layer nonstick coating that is PFOA-free. It's both oven- and dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "Now that I have cooked a few meals with this pan, I can honestly say that I will no longer be needing all my other pans. It just does it all. Cooking multiple ingredients at the same time and then infusing them together to mix the flavors is something that I have never been able to do before. Keep the pan at a medium heat to always get the best cook, because foods cook differently, and you can take your time in preparing your meal. I recommend this to pretty much anyone that likes to cook and mostly to the ones that dread it!" —Dan S

    Get it from Amazon for $42.98.

    19. 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

    Promising review: "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, BuzzFeed Editor

    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 nine colors, three lengths, and sizes 2XS—6XL).

    20. Warby Parker glasses for the trendiest pair of prescription glasses you'll ever own. Plus, for those who are indecisive, their at-home try on program is THE BEST.

    Samantha Wieder / BuzzFeed

    "I started wearing glasses regularly a few years ago when I found out the reason I was experiencing migraines and eye strain almost every single day for two months was because of astigmatism and nearsightedness. Knowing that glasses would now become a part of my daily life, I wanted to be sure I bought a pair that I felt cute in, but I am SO INDECISIVE. That is where Warby Parker comes in.

    Their at-home try on program is FREE. You get to pick five frames you love, and they send them to you within a few days. You then have about a week to try them on, take pictures with them, consult your family and friends for their thoughts, and they provide a free shipping label for sending them back. You can do this more than once! You just can't order a pair of glasses until your at-home try on has been returned.

    When it's time to order, you can either upload your prescription (this is the quickest option!), or Warby Parker can call your eye doctor for you. You can also choose between various add-ons. For example, because I stare at a laptop screen most of the day, my glasses contain blue-light filtering to help lessen the strain on my eyes. I now own THREE pairs of glasses from Warby Parker, and I can honestly say that thanks to their excellent customer service and trendy frames, I will be a customer for life.

    P.S. — If you have vision insurance and they help to cover the cost of glasses, Warby Parker can provide you with an insurance reimbursement form after you order!" —Samantha Wieder (aka ME!)

    Get them from Warby Parker: the Laurel in Tea Rose Fade (left) starting at $95, or the Eugene in Rosewood Tortoise (right) starting at $95, and be sure to check out all of the fabulous styles Warby Parker has to offer!

    21. A cleaning essentials kit so you can easily make your own nontoxic cleaning products at home. Plus, thanks to the reusable bottles, you'll be cutting down on waste and saving money on refills.

    Blueland

    Check out our review of the amazing Blueland cleaning essentials kit!

    Promising review: "Always trying to find ways to live more sustainably and with less waste. Blueland is a perfect way to do that with re-using the same bottles and you can re-up whenever you need to. I ended up purchasing another foaming hand soap bottle for the bathroom — I would order extra of the hand soap tablets because it does go pretty quick compared to the rest." —Cait F.

    Get it from Blueland for $39.

    22. A deep-kneading massager to use on your neck, back, shoulders, from anywhere. You can go ahead and call the masseuse you never had and tell them it's over, I'm sure they're gonna be very upset.

    Promising review: "Just got this in today. I suffer from a bunch of migraines caused by a stressful job. First impression, this dude is way sturdier and bigger than I figured it would’ve been. I used it to help ease up some of the knots and tension I carry in my shoulders and neck. I’m very impressed. I think for $40 it’s well worth the shot. And if you don’t like it, just re-gift it. I mean it's cheaper than one massage. I think this thing will save me money and help my tension headaches. Treat yo' self." —Emily Johns

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99.

    23. A Dash air fryer that'll have you enjoying "fried" versions of all your favorite foods, minus all the yucky oils.

    amazon.com

    Features a 6-quart capacity fryer basket, and an auto-shutoff function to prevent overcooking. All nonelectric parts are dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "I was very glad to join the air fry bandwagon with this Dash Air Fryer. I have mostly used it for frozen foods such as egg rolls, chicken tenders, and fish fillets so far. I use parchment paper to help with the cleanup. In some cases it comes out better with no oil at all. Definitely a more nutritious cooking alternative!" —Michael from San Diego

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99 (available in four colors).

    24. A thickened down jacket to keep you feeling warm and cozy no matter how cold or windy it gets outside.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This coat is no joke. The coldest temperature I tested it out in was 9 degrees and I did not feel like I was freezing at all! I even tried to wear with just a T-shirt, no sweaters/layers underneath, to see if I felt cold...nothing. No cold! Boomshakalaka! It's also so stylish, roomy, has a thousand pockets (goodbye purse!) and looks different from all the rest out there." —Zhure

    Get it from Amazon for $139.99+ (available in 13 colors, and sizes 2XS—5XL).

    25. 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 jar — the product itself is a white/cream color
    Sephora

    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!

    Promising review: "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, BuzzFeed Editor

    26. A Burst sonic toothbrush — an electric toothbrush with a battery that lasts for ONE MONTH per charge. Plus, it's been clinically proven to remove up to 10 times more plaque than a manual toothbrush, and helps to reduce gingivitis gum bleeding while brushing.

    This amazing toothbrush features charcoal-infused bristles, a two minute timer (aka you don't have to repeatedly sing happy birthday in your head while brushing), quad-interval technology that'll vibrate every 30 seconds so you're reminded to move to another part of your mouth, three brushing modes — whitening, sensitive, and massage, and a lifetime warranty, so if your brush stops working, they'll send you another one for free!

    Get it from Burst Oral Care for $69.99 (available in three colors).

    27. A stainless-steel cookware set perfect to get if you're in the market for a first-time set, or looking to upgrade a current set with something better.

    All of the cookware is dishwasher-safe, oven-safe in temperatures of up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit, and broiler-safe.

    Promising review: "I've been using these for three years now, and they are as good as new. We use the frying pan every single day and the pots at least weekly. They get a lot of use but we take good care of them. We avoid using metal on these and only use soft sponges to hand wash. When junk gets stuck on them (oil stains, burnt food...) we use a little Bar Keeper's Friend and they are as good as new. Beautiful set!" —Just choose kindness

    Get it from Amazon for $199+ (available in three sizes).

    28. A foam pillow that's soft, extremely comfy, supportive, and cool — basically all the things you want in a pillow compacted into one great pillow!

    Promising review: "I actually own this! I have never been able to find a pillow that supported my (always aching) neck, while also being comfortable enough to enjoy sleeping on. Not until I got this. It's squishy, sturdy, and super satisfying. I sleep hot and I love how cool it stays throughout the night. I can tell that I am falling asleep faster, sleeping deeper, and waking up feeling more comfortable." —Mal Mower, BuzzFeed Editor

    Get it from Tuft & Needle for $75+ (available in two sizes).

    29. A Keurig machine capable of making more than just coffee — this model allows coffee fanatics to enjoy things like lattes, cappuccinos, and even brew up concentrated coffee shots from their favorite K-Cups. Bye, Starbucks line!

    This of course makes regular coffee like a typical Keurig machine, but can also make concentrated shots from your favorite K-Cup, and lattes and cappuccinos with the included froth, which, BTW, is dishwasher-safe. The water reservoir allows you to brew up to six cups of coffee before needing to be re-filled. Plus, it automatically turns off two hours after the last brew to save energy!

    Promising review: "I am already in love with this machine. It makes an amazing latte. I have been waiting for Keurig to come out with one. We have an espresso machine, but we never use it because it was such a pain to make anything with it. Making a latte is so easy and clean up is a breeze with this new machine. Makes great regular coffee, just like you expect with a Keurig machine." —Sarah Bradshaw

    Get it from Amazon for $169.07+ (available in two colors).
