28 Products On Amazon Our Readers Are Loving Right Now

Chicken feet makeup sponge holders, pleasure wands, bed laptop trays, and 25 other favorite products from our recent posts.

Posted on

1. An illustrated guide on how to support your loved ones in their moments of need.

Rachel W. Miller / BuzzFeed

"It offers thoughtful, practical, and genuinely great advice for being a good friend to people going through something awful, advice that’s informed by empathy experts/research and also the fact that both authors have gone through some really heavy shit. It’s an easy read — it’s like reading a long, extremely great magazine article, and Emily McDowell’s illustrations make it even better — but I learned so much from it. [...] I also found that...it’s also unexpectedly comforting and validating if you yourself have recently dealt with something difficult." —Rachel W. Miller

3. Questionably cute pastel chicken legs to plop your makeup sponges in when they're not blending your makeup to perfection.

amazon.com

*names each headless chick*

"Hello, Fred. How are you?"

Promising review: "I couldn't bring myself to pay $20+ for what is basically an egg cup to hold my makeup sponge, so this little holder is great. My Sephora Perfectionist Airbrush Sponge fits inside very nicely. I received the mint green color and it's super cute." —M. Morgan

4. An adjustable laptop desk that basically gives you, a sloth person, a lifetime excuse to never leave your bed.

Yay beds! Yay endless hours of YouTube! Um, what do you mean by "it's already 3 a.m." and "go TF to sleep?"

"I hate leaving my bed and I *need* to have a sturdy surface to work (or watch YouTube) on, so this desk solves everything. Better yet, I can snuggle underneath my blanket and wiggle my legs around whenever they start to fall asleep. I usually use it flat, but you can also elevate the desk (there are different notches for your preferred angle and a removable wooden ledge to prevent your laptop from avalanching onto your chest). When I’m not using the desk, I just pop it underneath my bed. I could literally wake up and scoop up my desk in seconds, and thus live my best life." —Sarah Han

5. Fluffy white cleansing foam formulated with volcanic clusters from Jeju Island to deep clean your oilest, clogged pores.

Promising review: "My face feels clean after each use, and I have been getting compliments on my skin. I have never been told that I have good skin until after I used this for several months. I highly recommend and I also love the free samples that come with the wash." —Jenn

6. A personal "sound grenade" that emits ambulance-level noise when you pull the pin off the top.

amazon.com

An extra safety measure for peace of mind. Hopefully you'll *never* actually have to use it, but if you do, know that it'll actually help (see review). Available in six colors.

Promising review: "First of all, if it wasn't for this device, I likely wouldn't be here today writing this review. It was 2 a.m. and I was walking around in some questionable places — all of a sudden, two guys come out of nowhere and attempt to restrain me. Then I remembered I had this device on the side of my pants and pulled it. To be honest, when I bought this product I thought, "how will a silly little device that plays loud sounds save me!?" Well, that's exactly what happened. I am forever grateful." —mandmyellow

7. A super resourceful cookbook conceived for people living on food stamps, but relevant for anyone who wants to whip up healthy, delicious recipes on a strict budget.

amazon.com

With every book purchased, the publisher donates a copy to a person or family in need through food charities, nonprofits, and other organizations. 💯

Promising review: "If I could give this book 10 stars, I would. I lost my job and needed to save money on food, so I bought this. The recipes are so delicious! I have not found a single one that's a dud. My husband and I both feel better since we cut way back on processed foods and increased our veggie intake due to this book. I'll never go back!!" —Amazon Customer

8. A glass pleasure wand that will definitely hit the (G-) spot.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I'm relatively new to the world of toys and figuring out what actually works for me — I've bought the Womanizer, as well as the Ora 2 and Gigi 2, but those toys don't hold a flame to the job that this simple glass piece does. I've basically never been able to give myself a G-spot orgasm and can only achieve them through sex, but so far I've done it twice with this wand. The curve is fantastic and the overall shape and structure is so easy to wield. If you're debating this, I suggest you give it a try." —snailingabout

9. A pair of headlight cleaner wipes for rubbing grime away and leaving your lights polished and like-brand-new.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "My auto repair place quoted $180 to get my headlights cleaned and at least two hours to get the job done. I ordered these and got the job done for $4 and in five minutes." —Michelle

10. Mini kitten post-its that turn reading and staying organized into all-out cute affairs.

Eight designs x 30 per design = 240 total post-its.

Promising review: "Only took a week to get them and they are cute, cute, cute! I kept them in the plastic that they came in and keep them next to my reading chair. I saved some for my checkbook and I'm using the rest as bookmarks, but I'm also trying to include them on correspondence so I can show them off! There's about an inch to write on, in case you are using them for notes too. Each of the eight designs is unique, and the adhesive is what you would expect from similar products that aren't as cute!" —FLSTCKT

11. A rose gold 10-piece makeup brush set for an affordable dupe to the Instagram-famous Artis brushes (...that cost a whopping $500).

Promising review: "I generally shy away from using beautyblenders and brushes because the ones that I've tried seemed to soak up my foundation and the coverage often looked uneven — but that was not my experience with these at all. Of course these brushes do absorb a *little bit* of your makeup, but nowhere near as much as the ones I've used before, and they blend my foundation beautifully. They're also nice to look at and feel very soft against the skin." —Melanie

12. An effective spot remover that harnesses the power to make your toughest stains disappear without a fight.

Promising review: "I always felt relatively comfortable in my ability to deal with stains...until I accidentally washed a pen full of ink that had no intention of getting out. A friend who works at a craft store said her customers and co-workers constantly recommend this, so I gave it a shot. Five to ten minutes of soaking and a good follow-up wash gets out most stains the first time around, and any remaining stains are easier to deal with. This is the very best stain remover I've tried." —Emily J. Morris

13. A compact trash bag with an adjustable velcro strap to hang around headrests or stick shifts, as well as a velcro bottom that disposes trash with one swift rip.

Promising review: "It holds a good amount of trash, so I just empty it weekly during one of my stops to get gas. My car is clean without an unsightly grocery store bag hanging around. This is professional and functional." —tess

14. Ultra-soft microfiber makeup remover cloths that oh-so-easily take off (waterproof!) makeup with just water (gasp!) and a few gentle scrubs.

Available in pink, black, and purple.

Promising review: "My 15-year-old daughter has extremely sensitive skin and we have gone through dozens of cleansers looking for something that will keep her skin clear and not cause burning and redness. We have found our miracle product in this cloth. She and I both use them and we are thrilled with the results. No irritation and smooth, beautiful skin. My routine is also much simpler now — I just wet the cloth with warm water and wipe off my makeup and the day's dirt. I follow up with a light moisturizer and then I'm done. I just throw the cloth in the wash to clean — really easy. " —Kitty M. Holdaway

15. A 42-pack of colorful, flexible curling rods to give your hair some va-va-voom without any heat damage.

Promising review: "The various sizes of the rods let me create numerous hairstyles that make it look like I own several different-sized curling irons. I use them on my hair when it's wet and then sit under the dryer, or I use them after heat-treated styling to hold or increase the curls until I'm ready to go to whatever special occasion I did my hair for. The carrying case is super convenient and means these are the first items in my toiletry bag whenever I travel. I've used them several times and they seem very durable, like they will last a while through heavy uses." —BKmarie

16. A powerful 16-ft cord handheld vacuum that sucks up pet hair and debris like no one's business.

Promising review: "I have a German Shepard and a Husky who both shed their weight in fur every day. I was tired of taking my Shark vacuum up and down the stairs with all its attachments. Though I really had my heart set on a cordless one, the reviews for those were less than stellar, so I took a chance on this Bissell Pet Hair Eraser and I'm glad I did. This little vacuum is AMAZING. This thing even picked up the hair the Shark left behind! I also use it for our comforters and couches. " —cynthia010

17. A velcro-bottomed folding organizer you can stash in your car trunk without the fear of it slipping around everywhere.

amazon.com

Promising review: "When I bought this, I didn't expect it to hold everything I wanted it to (mainly emergency supplies), but I was so impressed when it did. It can easily hold a folded blanket, a big can of fix-a-flat, roll of duct tape, two folded outfits, a case of water bottles, a couple boxes of energy bars, a big first aid kit, jumper cables, and more. The mesh side pockets are also decently sized. At first, I didn't realize the bottom actually has velcro to hold the organizer in place, and it ACTUALLY WORKS. " —Michael

18. A beauty sample box that covers allll of your personal care essentials and gives you an equivalent amount of credit ($11.99) for your next purchase.

Promising review: "I don't want to waste money on full-priced items that either I won't end up using entirely or wouldn't work for me in the first place, so I love that Amazon puts all these neat items together (and clearly shows how big/small the samples are). You can also see eligible items for the credit you receive with the box, so check those out before buying. I subscribe to many other beauty boxes, but I really think *this* sample box is worth the money." —lilmissgrumpypants

19. A pair of car hooks to clip onto your headrest so your purses (and other belongings) stay off of the dirty car floor.

amazon.com

Available in black and beige.

Promising review: "I bought these for my wife because her purse would always fall over in the back of her Jeep. She was skeptical at first but now uses these hooks everyday. They're able to hold her tank of a purse without breaking. I was originally looking to buy different hooks, but I realized the Jeep's headrests don't come all the way off. These hooks, however, are universal as they clip in on the side." —Brian

20. A deep-cleaning brush duo that does the job much better than the raggedy toothbrushes you keep in your cleaning kit.

Promising review: "A big step up from toothbrushes, which I have used for many years prior to buying these. Key improvements include: angled handles that get your hands out of the way and are bigger and grippier than a toothbrush, stiff bristles on the larger brush that are great for heavy scrubbing (without scratching anything), and both ends of the smaller brush (tapered, softer bristles on one and a rubber nub on the other) that are surprisingly good for cleaning in tight areas." —jfb

21. A 27-sheet set of decorative line and dot stickers for journaling with a little cheer and flair.

Promising review: "Got these for my bullet journal instead of washi tape. The pages come pre-cut with two narrow width strips (about 1/4" wide), two wider strips (about 1/2" wide), and three or four dots per sheet. These feel like paper tape, not like traditional masking tape with that bumpy texture, so it's great for writing and the ink soaks in pretty quickly, so no smearing. The variety in sheet designs includes a bit of everything: dots, stripes, checks. I'm loving them." —Lisa S.

22. A waterproof backseat cover to keep your car clean from your pet's dirt, dander, and unruly hair.

amazon.com

Promising review: "This seat cover came in clutch after a day of trail running with two pups — no dirt or hair on my seats! Assembly is exceptionally easy — just loop the buckles around your headrests, push the weights between the seat cushions, and loop the elastics around the edge of the seats. And just like that, you've got lasting protection against moisture, muddy paws, and stray pet hairs." —Amazon Customer

23. Handy tissue dispensers that slide right over your overhead visors or backseat pockets for easy booger cleanup.

amazon.com

Promising review: "These are by far the best invention for easily-accessible tissues. Once we used up the included tissues, I just broke open a box of Kleenex and inserted them right in. Works perfectly, and all my friends want one now!" —Crystal

24. Fragrance-free eye repair cream to help repair your most delicate skin and reduce dark circles/puffiness.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I am obsessed! I have really bad dark circles and weird combo skin, and I was getting terrible dry patches underneath my eyes, but when I'd apply more moisturizer, it'd just irritate my eyes. This stuff feels amazing the second you put it on — so soft and it feels like my skin drinks it right up. I started using it both morning and night, and as a result, my dark circles have become less noticeable and I haven't had a single issue with dryness." —Elizabeth C.

25. A small 12-volt vacuum that plugs straight into your dash and has a slim nozzle that gets into every crevice of your car.

Promising review: "Cheap price that does the JOB. The cord is long enough that if it's plugged in on your dash, it'll still reach the backseat (in an SUV). This is a car-with-kids must. Sucked up goldfish and raisin piles in carseats, and most of the crumbs and sand on the car floor. Perfect for quick clean-ups!" —Erin

26. Speaking of vacuum technology, a sexy-time toy equipped with 11 programs and powerful suction capabilities that'll get you to orgasm in no time.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I'm in a long-distance relationship and this seriously keeps me going. It's seriously so wonderful. I never have to go too far with the suction setting because it's very powerful and very pleasing. I would even recommend this for couple play! Don't buy the Womanizer. This is more than enough!" —Amazon Customer

28. And a pair of silicone makeup sponges to end unwanted goodbyes with wasted makeup absorbed by regular brushes and sponges.

amazon.com

Promising review: "Makeup glides on smoothly and blends beautifully. Since these are silicone they don't absorb any makeup, so no wasted makeup and no bacteria growth (i.e. on a regular makeup sponge with leftover makeup in it). I don't know about you, but I could never rinse *all* the makeup out of a regular sponge. Every time I use *this* sponge, I just quickly wash everything off with soap and water, and it's clean and ready to go for next time. I'll never go back to regular makeup sponges!" —Amazon Customer
