Promising review: "I OWN THIS AND IT'S MY FIRST BODYSUIT AND I LOVE IT SO MUCH. Retucking and readjusting tops into my skirt is a constant problem/annoyance in my life, so this takes care of that. And the material is so friggin' soft. And I could talk about the party in the back for days — like, I'm basically a fashion influencer now." —Sarah Han

7. A springy makeup sponge holder to prevent your beauty poofs from picking up ALL the germs, and in a pinch, it doubles as a handy stress reliever.

Promising review: "Easy addition to my life. Prior to this, I was keeping my beauty blender in a candle holder (which also wasn't a terrible solution), but this is better because it allows the sponge more 'air.' Those sponges are bacteria breeding grounds. Well, not in my house! Love this simple and smart solution." —KCM

8. A chic crossover v-neck top with dainty embroidery that singlehandedly gives your wardrobe a major boost.

10. Soothing collagen-packed eye patches that'll hit the reset button on your tired and puffy AF eyes after staring into the gloomy glare of a laptop screen for 12 straight hours.

Promising review: "I use them for my puffy morning eyes after cleansing and toning, and they work. I leave them on for about 15 minutes until they are almost dry. Once I peel these off, my puffiness is gone! I then place them back into the plastic package and clamshell and use them again the next morning. I know these are technically one-time use, but there is plenty of solution left to resoak and reuse, so I get 20 applications out of them." —ShoozyGet a 10-pack from Amazon for $10.79 or Walmart for $13.75.

13. A billowy floral cardigan to make all of your worries fade away in the breeze (byeeee, work deadlines!).

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "Not only did this cardigan arrive ahead of schedule, but it also fit really well. It is sometimes hit-and-miss with loose-fitting items, but this one really is snug enough to stay on my narrow shoulders while maintaining its flowy look. It's been washed and dried once and it held up really well. No loose threads and the fabric did not wrinkle. I'm considering buying another in a different pattern." —Yvonne Catherine Bussell

Get it from Amazon for $2.76+ (available in sizes XS–L and 35 colors/styles) or a similar one from Walmart for $19.99 (available in three colors and sizes S–L).

Promising review: "Looks just like our furbaby! The rug is not heavy duty, but I didn't want a heavy, thick rug that you might put in front of your door — just something for coming out of the shower or in front of the kitchen sink. I would buy another and recommend it." —WNCHeidiGet it from Amazon for $8.46+ (available in two sizes and 16 styles).

15. Dual-ended markers to add a lil' flourish to the simplest of doodles, birthday cards, and everything in between.

amazon.com

Promising review: "Fabulous for what they are: long, elegant brush tips. I use a waterbrush or a paintbrush dipped in water to distribute the pigment. I've had my black Tombow for 13 months now and it still has rich ink and no sign of drying up. These are not lightfast nor permanent. For permanent, lightfast color, check out Faber-Castell Pitt pens which are loaded with India ink but are not water soluble." —G'ma

Promising review: "It feels so good and it saves your hands and arms when you’re giving a massage. I can give a way longer and better massage. My hubby also used this to rub my back, hips, and shoulders during labor and it helped a ton! I am a believer." —Malea P.

19. A simple cap to take your passive-aggressiveness to new levels when you just. Need. Your. Space.

Promising review: "Great fit. Durable material but still comfortable. Wear it all day and it doesn't cause any discomfort or those weird red lines like other hats. It has the clamp-style fastener in the back instead of the button, which I think is more comfortable and holds the size better. All around great product. I wear mine every day." —T.M.

The inside has a liner in case of spillage. It's is super sturdy and machine-washable. All in all, a great bag." —Rguz2146Get it from Amazon for $24.50.

22. A sparkly-as-hell mermaid brush you should buy just because it's so freaking pretty — ok, but also because it's really soft but still able to pick up and apply products super nicely and smoothly.

Promising review: "Cheap, but cute. The bristles aren't OVERLY soft, but they're not too stiff, either. It's a pretty dense brush. But It's also pretty see-through, and mine is more of a pink color with pink and aqua/green glitter. It took about two weeks to get here. I can't think of any other useful information. But I like it." —LacyGet it from Amazon for $4.29 or a similar one from Jet for $5.49.
