    Amazon has a list of products called β€œMovers and Shakers,” which is pretty much just fancy talk for things that are currently β€œtrending.”

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

    1. An explorative, heartrending poetry collection divided into chapters following a flower's journey: wilting, falling, rooting, rising, and blooming.

    Preorder for Oct. 3! Rupi's first collection Milk and Honey is the #1 bestseller in Amazon's "American Poetry" category (at time of writing).

    Price: $10.19 (paperback) or $7.99 (Kindle)

    2. An exfoliating facial peeling gel that instantly (but also gently) removes dirt, oils, and dead skin to reveal baby-soft skin.

    Promising review: "This face scrub is seriously my favorite stuff ever. It cleans my face so well and the dead skin literally peels off. Such a great price too! I bought this at a mall kiosk a couple of years ago and have been searching for it ever since β€” I bought it for $25 there though!" β€”Breeanna C.

    Price: $8.49

    3. A nonstick baking pan for the best edge-only brownies of your life β€” just read the review if you don't believe me!

    Promising review: "Before this pan I made brownies from scratch because I don't do the box mix thing and my kids and husband ate them all. I would just trim off the edges here and there, eat the occasional corner piece, and enjoy the chewy goodness. But now after trying out this pan, here I sit eating like half the brownies I made. Smooth move. This is the same recipe I always make in a 9x13 pan and it fit perfectly into this pan. I greased and lightly floured the pan and the brownies just pop right out, using the cute little spatula that comes with it. But you know what will NOT be cute and little? Me, thanks to this pan. These are hands-down the most delicious brownies I have ever made." β€”Bailey's mom

    Price: $35.95

    4. A luxurious, deep-conditioning berry lip mask to soothe your dry, cracked, and flaky pout overnight so you wake up with the plump lips you deserve!

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing! My lips are always chapped and peeling, no matter how much water I drink or and how much lip balm I slather on. After just one night and day of using this, my lips are soft and smooth. No more nasty, peeling lips. I can actually wear lipstick! I put it on before bed and before I leave for work. Smells delicious and I love that they provide an applicator so you don't have to stick your finger in the jar. My lips look soft, supple, hydrated, and even a little plumper than usual." β€”SPI

    Price: $13.76 (available in four other scents)

    5. Beauty sponges that blend, buff, and even out better than their more expensive counterparts (Beautyblender, we're onto you).

    Promising review: "Great value! My wife was looking to get one of theses at a local store costing 10 times as much. As far as she is concerned, this is the same quality found in the store minus the fancy packaging. I keep one on me to get rid of the oil on my forehead. Works like a charm. Skip the store and buy it here." β€”Tanner L. Pollard

    Price: $9.99 (set of five)

    6. A unique ~atlas~ showcasing diverse female bosses who will blow you away time and time again.

    Shot by world-gallivanting photographer Mihaela Noroc. Follow her on Instagram here!

    Price: $19.97 (hardcover) or $15.99 (Kindle)

    7. A 360-degree rotating storage cart to help organize your nightmare of a beauty supply.

    Promising review: "I am probably one of the most unorganized people to ever live so I try to invest in things to make life a little easier β€” this is one of those purchases. It has plenty of room for all of my cosmetic accessories and cleansers and even some of my makeup too. The stand is sturdy and well-made." β€”Cayci N. Maynard

    Price: $18.99

    8. A fast-absorbing dish mat that's a way less bulky alternative to traditional drying racks.

    Promising review: "Perfect size for a drying mat. Holds moisture well. The decorative print adds a nice touch to plain apartment kitchens." β€”Jampa in Atlanta

    Price: $6.69 (available in seven patterns, including a cute owl one!)

    9. A handy portable fan to help you through bullshit 80-degree "fall weather."

    Sept. 22 is a day full of lies and deceit.

    Promising review: "I actually ended up ordering two of these fans. We use them when we go hammock camping β€” we only use them on low and they provide adequate air flow. All we need is a gentle breeze during the hot summer months! So far, they've run for four nights on low and are still on the same set of batteries. I am very pleased with them." β€”FlyboyTR

    Price: $7.99+ (available in black and grey)

    10. Classic strappy heels that won't make you wobble or flail your arms around in panic β€” wow, someone give these shoes a medal.,

    Promising review: "Exactly what I needed β€” they fit beautifully. The heel isn't overly high and the chunkiness gives me stability. The nude color makes my legs look longer. I usually wear an 8.5–9 in shoes and the 8.5 was a perfect fit." β€”Elizabeth B. Duckworth

    Price: $24.70+ (available in sizes 5–12 and 15 colors)

    11. A firm but super comfortable memory foam cushion to make prolonged periods of sitting down a million times more bearable on the back, tailbone, and hips.

    Promising review: "I have degenerative disc disease and fibromyalgia. I flew from Wisconsin to Colorado and drove back all in three days. This cushion helped immensely β€” my butt never went numb, my sciatica never got pinched, and my back was not as painful as it should have been (nothing can make pain disappear altogether). It also helped my posture and pressure on my lower back. I'm so happy I bought this." β€”Christina Lynn

    Price: $29.95

    12. A comfy but stylish maxi dress that isn't overly floral or striped β€” it's got the best of both worlds!

    Promising review: "Love the way this dress fits, feels, and looks. The material doesn't cling to you and it's easy to iron when needed. If you have a big chest I would recommend ordering a size up." β€”hopes

    Price: $22.99 (available in sizes S–XL and five styles)

    13. An expandable carry-on to help over-packers equip themselves with one too many outfits. Am I speaking from experience? Maaaybe.,

    It weighs 6.5 pounds and has dimensions of 20" x 13" x 9".

    Promising review: "Wow, this suitcase is amazing and has been cleared as a carry-on on all of my flights β€” in the last six weeks I have flown Delta, United, Jet Blue, Southwest, and American. The suitcase holds about 7–10 days worth of clothes, two pairs of shoes (sneakers and heels), and two cosmetic bags (one for toiletries and one for makeup)! Worth the buy!!" β€”Patrick Bourke

    Price: $39.99+ (available in 34 colors)

    14. A potent, plant-based vitamin C serum that helps reverse the effects that time and environmental damage have on your skin.

    Promising review: "I have been using this product for only a month and I can see such a difference in my skin. I'm 57 and I've had dark spots on my face since my 20s. I have used so many creams and treatments and spent so much money and never had good results, but this vitamin C serum has been a miracle. My spots on my nose have already completely faded and the others are almost gone! My skin also feels soft, so soft." β€”Carmen

    Price: $15.74

    15. Shiny AF metallic shorts for a stylish astronaut-in-training workout look.

    Promising review: "Super cute and fit as expected. They look pricey and make me feel fancy while still being comfortable. I also love the pockets." β€”Haley DeLaura

    Price: $11.99+ (available in sizes XS–2X and seven colors)

    16. A rainbow strawberry squishy toy that will win the hearts of toddlers and adults alike. No one's immune to the charm of squeezing soft objects β€” it's a fact!

    Promising review: "My daughter loves this squishy!! The best part is that she squeezes it and it is slow to reform, which she brags about." β€”John Riddle

    Price: $1.33

    17. A meme-tastic party game created specifically for millennials to laugh at their own dumb (but amazing, if I do say so myself) jokes.

    Promising review: "This is a funny game. I find it more 'raunchy' than Cards Against Humanity. I feel that the cards are either pretty innocent or WAY over the line β€” this had us all cracking up the entire game." β€”Amazon Customer

    Price: $29.99

    18. A cute colorblocked top that meets your simple needs β€” isn't overly heavy or thick but still keeps you cozy and warm.

    Size up for an oversized look with leggings and over-the-knee boots, aka your go-to fall outfit.

    Promising review: "Love it! Super comfy and the fabric is a really good weight. I normally wear a small or a medium but based on reviews I sized up to a large (I'm curvy with big hips) and it was perfect! I'm able to tuck it under and wear it shorter with jeans and longer for leggings. Very versatile!" β€”Amy MI

    Price: $12.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and four styles)

    19. An antibacterial, mildew-resistant shower curtain (or liner if you want to use it with a cloth curtain) for an overall better shower experience β€” because no one wants to deal with replacing gross, cheap curtains every month.

    Promising review: "I waited six months to write this review and my original liner looks as good as the day I hung it. No mildew or rust. The magnets are weighty and stick well to the bathtub. I even replaced the liner in my other bathroom with another one of these. Excellent value and quality." β€”Homer's Mom

    Price: $10.99

    20. A compact fabric steamer that spruces up your (hanging) clothes in a few minutes flat β€” so you really have no excuse to keep walking around like a wrinkled mess.,

    Promising review: "I love this thing! I hate ironing, mostly because my cats make it difficult. But I just hang my clothes on a hanger in my bathroom and steam it up! It takes less time than setting up the ironing board and I never worry about burning my more delicate clothes. It heats up in about a minute and gets the wrinkles out super well. Aside from maybe heavier dress pants, I think this works for just about everything. Even when I'm in a rush (99% of the time), I still have time to do this. It's my first step to adulting. Also, it's pretty small. I overpack pretty severely, and I've still been able to fit this in my duffle bag for several trips." β€”Emily A.

    Price: $24.99
