    39 Products You Probably Won't Be Able To Get Out Of Your Head

    If you keep thinking about them, they're most likely worth a try, right?

    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 β€” prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. Miracle-Gro indoor plant food spikes infused with fertilizer and micronutrients, which will pretty much deliver ~miracles~ for plants belonging to self-proclaimed plant killers. Not only will you deserve a pat on the back, your mom will probably be super proud of you when you call her excitedly to tell her the news of your healthy bbs.

    Mary H. / Via

    Each spike can be used for 30-60 days, depending on the season. The reviewer pics above are all of the same plant β€” the far left photo shows how the plant in its droopy, original state, the middle photo is a slightly perkier plant just10 days, and the right photo shows the happy, lifted, and healthy result after three weeks!

    Promising review: "I always kill my plants but I decided to try again. I just bought five houseplants, and three of them were marked down because they were looking pretty puny. Since I tend to kill them anyway, I figured I would give them a try and save some money. I put one of these spikes in each plant and they all looked so much healthier and happier after just a couple days. I also added one spike to the only houseplant that I've had for years without killing (I was beginning to think it was artificial), and the leaves looked healthier almost immediately. I'm very happy with this product, and it was at a great price." β€”Victoria

    Get a pack of 48 spikes from Amazon for $6.95.

    2. BodyGlide anti-blister foot balm to save your poor heels, toes, and ankles from forming blisters and rubbing themselves raw β€” painful shoes, we're looking at you! Plus, it washes off easily at the end of the day, or comes off easily with some wipes.

    @bodyglide / Via

    It's also infused with Vitamin A and C for skin-softening benefits!

    Promising review: "I am proud to post that I have just completed the 2018 Boston Marathon in torrential rain and hurricane-like winds β€” one of the absolute worst conditions for a marathon. A friend recommended body and foot glide, so I coated my entire foot, between the toes and all. NO BLISTERS after 26.2 miles in the pouring rain. Sneakers soaked at the start. I cannot rave more about this product. Incredible value to save you a lot of pain. Highly recommended for bad weather, breaking in new shoes, etc." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    3. A nifty PhoneSoap UV light sanitizer that is said to destroy 99.99% of all bacteria and germs, because your phone accumulates farrrr too much gunk on a daily basis (it's gross, trust me) β€” plus, you can charge your phone at the same time via a USB port or USB-C port.

    Ginger / Via, Ritual / Via

    ^As you can tell by the photo on the right, a customer actually swabbed two phones for bacteria, and you can see the before and after in each!

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this product! I have a weakened immune system due to an autoimmune disorder and I work in a hospital, which means I am around nasty germs ALL the time! I use PhoneSoap on my cell phone once or twice a week and I have noticed a difference in how often I get sick! This product is a little pricey, but it is worth the money. You touch so many different surfaces in a day that you have to regularly clean your phone." β€”Rebekah Keim

    Get it from Amazon for $79.95+ (available in eight colors).

    P.S. If you want more gruesome photos of phone bacteria, check out this visual BuzzFeed study!

    4. A champagne stopper with a built-in pressure pump to keep your bubbles (including non-alcoholic ones, like sparkling cider!) fully intact, so you can keep the party going well after the initial ~pop~.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed / Via

    Promising review: "I’m guessing most people buy this great product for stopping sparkling wines, but it works just as well for any large-bottle sparkling drink, including apple ciders. And the ability to pump it once sealed means you don’t waste a single bubble getting the bottle back to its full pressure. Great product. Superb customer service." β€”DavidAtSwans

    Get it from Amazon for $8.97.

    5. Or, for a ~quirkier~ twist, wine condoms that'll help preserve the freshness of your wine upon opening, so you can enjoy that red or white for days to come, because sometimes you're a responsible adult and don't drink the whole bottle in one night. Plus, they're sure to earn some laughs if you gift 'em out!


    Promising review: "So good I had to buy two! Not only are these wine condoms a gift that people will talk about, but they're a responsible way to keep your wine sealed between drinks. First and foremost, they're reusable. I do want to note though that, like any other condom, a wine condom will break if you're too rough with it β€” however, if you use common sense while putting one on the bottle and don't try to overstretch it, I doubt you'll have any problems (I haven't had any so far). Personally, I prefer using these to traditional corks when storing white wine because I can keep my bottles sideways in the fridge without fear of any spillage. I also want to note that these Wine Condoms were socially conscious: when I received my package, I also received a note stating that a portion of my purchase had gone toward providing clean water for those in need. Definitely worth the purchase from a great company!" β€”Samantha

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $13.97.

    Read our full writeup of the Wine Condoms for more info! And if you'd rather have a less suggestive option, you can opt for this vacuum-creating wine stopper.

    6. A Cube Pro smart tracker you'll want attached to your keys, wallet, water bottles, pets (more of a ~just in case~ scenario), and whatever else you're weary about misplacing β€” this lil' thing could really save the day!

    Dee / Via

    All you gotta do is pair Cube with your smartphone and it'll use Bluetooth to do the rest! It has a range of up to 200 feet and a volume of 101dB. And if you lose your phone, you can use your Cube to locate it via ring, vibrate, or flash. It also comes with a battery already inside, plus an extra battery β€” and since each lasts a year, you already have two years worth of juice right out of the packaging!

    Promising review: "I purchased this key finder after a discussion with a friend about how I seem to always lose things. The key finder she had was ridiculously expensive, but I found this one and it works better than the one she bought. I decided to put mine on a carabiner so I can easily move it from my set of keys to my husband's. I had just barely started using this product when this key finder more than saved the day after my husband dropped his keys while we were at a Green Bay Packers family night! I have also found it useful to attach to my purse when I go out with friends. Highly recommend!" β€”Dee

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95.

    7. A morning meditation journal that'll only require a pen, two minutes of your time, and a few thoughts, so you hopefully make a habit of starting your mornings with good intentions and a more positive mindset.


    Promising review: "This was purchased for me as a Christmas gift from a coworker. I only recently started using it, as I've been dealing with some troubles in my life. I don't know what it is, but even if I repeat some of the same stuff, getting this done in the mornings (or sometimes at night) has made such a tremendous difference in my attitude toward myself and to others. So much so, that several people have taken notice. I have since purchased a couple copies for friends who are also dealing with troubles in their lives. I highly recommend it. Even if you aren't dealing with any issues in life, it's such a help for clearing your head before starting your day." β€”Sumo

    Get it from Amazon for $13.46.

    If you want an even simpler daily journal, try the One Line A Day!

    8. A pair of moisture-wicking, odor-neutralizing, fluids-absorbing, leak-resistant, and washable Thinx period boyshorts for making heavy-flow days a little less bothersome, since this will give you all the comfort and coverage you need, so you can slip it on and not have to worry about leakage β€” 'cause this baby holds up to two regular tampons' worth!


    I've only tried their hiphuggers, which I love for daytime wear, BUT I only wish I had these boyshorts for troublesome (namely, I'm lying on my side) nighttime flows. You just give them a good rinse in the sink (ya' know, to get most of the blood out) before popping them into the washer (in a mesh laundry bag if you're careful like that!) for a ~deep~ cleanse!

    Promising review: "Bought the Boyshort in size XL and just had my first try last night, and I had a great sleep with zero leakage. Also, when I woke up I felt dry and clean. It was just amazing β€” more than I expected, especially since it was the first night of my period. Really happy with the purchase!" β€”Julia T.

    Get it from Thinx for $39 (available in sizes XXS–3XL).

    9. A set of packing cubes can transform your mess of a suitcase (that you definitely started frantically packing 30 mins before you had to leave for the airport) into something much more organized and presentable. All I can say is...bless.

    Persiangem / Via

    Promising review: "I love these cubes. We have different colors for each person in our family. They keep the suitcase organized and everyone's clothes separate. They can hold a ton of clothes rolled up. I used the biggest size to hold all of my clothes for a 7 day cruise for a total of 11 days all together. I have had these stuffed to the brim and the seams are holding up great. All the different sizes make this a great purchase because they accommodate different trip lengths. I wish I would have bought these much sooner because we travel a lot." β€”T. McKinzie

    Get the set of four from Amazon for $24.99 (comes with a small, medium, large, and extra large bag; available in eight colors).

    10. Keepon tips to attach to the ends of your glasses' arms, so they hook onto your ears better and prevent your glasses from slipping all the time. 'Cause who has the time to be pushing their glasses up every five seconds? Not us!


    Promising review: "My new prescription is heavy and wouldn't stop slipping down my nose. They're adjusted well, but that didn't stop them from shifting some. The frame I fell in love with is a bit chunky and oversized too, which doesn't help the weight and slipping. I was a bit weary of these, but these turned out to be perfect. It takes an extra second to put my glasses on because I have to tuck the silicone in place, but it's worth it because I don't have to constantly push my glasses up. They're very soft too. I get migraines and was worried about that, but I read that the black keepons are soft and the clear ones are hard, so I chose the black. They also distribute the weight evenly, so it's not all on my nose. No matter what I do, my glasses aren't moving. Getting them on wasn't too difficult, but it took some testing. Now I keep going to push my glasses up out of habit, something I've been doing for over 20 years, but then I realize I don't even need to. Oh, and no one can see that they're on my glasses!" β€”A.M.M.

    Get 10 pairs from Amazon for $3.99.

    11. A pair of Under Armour HeatGear cropped leggings for a second skin–like feel that'll keep you cool as a cucumber (note the strategic mesh panels!) and dry while you sweat πŸ‘ and πŸ‘ work πŸ‘ it πŸ‘ out πŸ‘. And the cropped length means no weird bunching at the ends, thank goodness.

    Under Armour

    Promising review: "I'm 5'11, 150 pounds, and an avid weightlifter who sweats during exercise more than any one person should ever sweat. These are AMAZING and I've since purchased them in two additional colors β€” I kind of just need all of them now. They are excellent at keeping me dry, and no matter how much booty sweat I create, the color of the pants doesn't darken and give me away. Size small looked tiny coming out of the package, and I was very skeptical about the sizing, but they instantly became my favorite pair of workout pants. They have just the right amount of compression, and they really hold my muscles in place during high intensity training. The design on the front is super flattering to a girl with long legs and big quads, and the fabric has just the right thickness and sheen to show off my shape without being obnoxious. The length is awesome, as I really struggle to find leggings that don't bunch up behind my knees when I squat. They settle right into place within a few minutes of wearing them, and don't move again until I take them off. Give them a try, and you won't regret it." β€”Quadzilla

    Get it from Under Armour for $50 (available in sizes XSS–XXLS in short length, XS–XXL in regular length, and XST–XXLT in tall length, and two colors).

    12. A Dr. Jart Cicapair Tiger Grass Treatment that'll soothe and camouflage redness, even out skin tone, and protect skin against environmental aggressors (it actually forms a dust barrier!) and UV rays with SPF 30 β€” I mean, no wonder it's such a well-known and well-loved skincare gem; it does it all!


    Promising review: "I have a super minimalist beauty routine and rarely invest in products β€” but let me tell you: this is the real deal. I recently set out to find a unicorn all-in-one product that would moisturize, reduce redness, didn’t feel like makeup, and would have the SPF my fair skin needs. A friend recommended this I can’t believe the instant effect this has on my skin! It’s light as air, has a beautiful finish, color corrects my redness, and moisturizes to boot. I. Am. In. Love." β€”MLRRR

    Get it from Sephora for $18+ (available in two sizes). For a lighter version, try the Tiger Grass Cream or Tiger Grass Calming Gel Cream (but they don't have SPF).

    13. Stylish neoprene Dagne Dover backpacks and duffle carryall bags with built-in luggage sleeves for easy, stable carrying as you rush from one end of the airport to the other in a mad dash to catch your flight (because traffic was terrible and put you way behind schedule, but that's another story).

    @dagnedover / Via, @dagnedover / Via

    Get both from Nordstrom: the backpack for $135+ (available in small and medium sizes, as well as five colors) and the duffle bag for $125+ (available in medium, large, and x-large sizes, as well as six colors).

    Read a BuzzFeeder's full review of the Dagne Dover carryall (the older version without a luggage sleeve; #2) to find out why it's so dependable!

    14. A zipper puller designed to clasp onto any zipper and act as an extension, so you can pull your dresses all the way up yourself *and* avoid straining and twisting your arm, thank you very much!


    No more bending over backwards to zip up that dang dress!

    Promising review: "So in the old days, I rigged up a zipper puller with a paper clip and a string. This was great for the old zippers there the pull had a little hole in it. However, invisible zippers have taken over the fashion world and those pulls are solid. I've found myself getting into all kinds of contortions trying to pull them up so my curiosity was definitely piqued when I saw this little item. Lo and behold, it does exactly what it's supposed to do. This really is a life-changing thing for me. Now I don't have to choose my dresses according to whether or not my spouse is home to help me zip!" β€”Vicky Embrey

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in two colors).

    15. A squeeze-ful of Bliss Jelly Glow Peel that'll physically exfoliate and lift away dead (and dry/peeling!) skin cells, so your skin feels so freakin' soft and smooth (I'm not exaggerating) and your skincare products β€” including that expensive serum β€” absorb more deeply and work more effectively.

    Sarah Han / BuzzFeed / Via

    How does it work its magic? Papaya and pineapple enzymes help loosen dead skin cells in preparation for removal, and then soft plant-based fibers act like ~micro-lint rollers~ to capture and roll away dirt and dry, flaky skin.

    Promising review: "Let me tell you! I've tried EVERYTHING, including Proactive and Rodan & Fields, and nothing has helped my skin in the way that this (and the cleansing collection) have! My skin is combination that reacts to EVERYTHING, but after two days of using this, my redness, peeling, and oily patches were GONE! I can't get over how much I love this! I actually enjoy taking care of my skin now because I can see almost immediately and feel how much of a difference this has made!" β€”Anonymous

    Get it from Amazon for $7.49 or Target for $9.99.

    16. A comfy, washable, and reusable anti-nausea Sea-Band wristband to ~naturally~ ease motion sickness by applying pressure to acupressure points on your wrist, so you can hopefully go about your day and travel freely without fearing that you'll vomit just about anywhere.


    Alongside motion sickness, these claim to also help with morning sickness, chemotherapy, surgery, and more.

    Promising review: "While these may not work for everyone, I have found them to be very effective at staving off vertigo. Even my worst "attacks" are at least lessened when wearing them. As others have said, they need to be tight. I found that washing mine (regular wash) helped to restore the tautness almost 100%." β€”nanamo

    Get a pair from Amazon for $5.49 or Target for $8.59.

    17. A bottle of Mike's Hot Honey for adding just the right amount of sweet 'n' spicy kick to just about everything you put in your mouth β€” we're talkin' pizza, biscuits, poached eggs, toast, pasta. Whatever your heart desires, this will make it better!

    Amazon, Stacey Blair / Via

    Promising review: "I was a skeptic, but now I AM a believer. This mixed up honey is absolutely fabulous. I ordered three bottles more after my initial order. Why? Because it is really good on everything. And I mean EVERYTHING. Soft pretzels, toast, biscuits, waffles, cereal, yogurt, ice cream, and definitely pizza. Gives everything in your kitchen a small kick of sweet heat flavor without burning your mouth. I have told many of my friends about this magical elixir and they all agree β€” this is the BEST specialty honey any of us have ever had. Don’t hesitate to buy it. It is absolutely wonderful stuff. I most HIGHLY recommended!" β€”Jeff R. Clow

    Get it from Amazon for $8.48.

    Check out our full review of Mike's Hot Honey for more info!

    18. A Not Your Mother's blow dry accelerator to make your morning routine a whole heck faster and efficient, because this bb really does cut down on blow dry time *and* doubles as a heat protectant, so your mane stays feelin' smooth and frizz-free every time you take to extreme degrees.

    @nymbrands / Via

    Promising review: "My hair is somewhere between straight and wavy. I blow dry and flat iron my hair every day. It's long (past mid-back) and, while it's fine, there is a lot of it. Typically, it takes 35-45 minutes to get my hair dry. I came across this product and I decided to give it a try. My hair goes from dripping wet to bone dry in 10 minutes FLAT. This stuff is a lifesaver. I want people who spend five or six hours a week under a blowdryer to know there's a better way!!" β€”CLL1979

    Get it from Amazon for $3.65.

    19. A pack of disposable, dry jewelry wipes can spruce up your gold and silver jewelry in a flash, so they look like you just bought them β€” in all of their non-yellowing and non-tarnished glory.

    Briana / Via, Steph / Via

    For silver jewelry, it claims to leave an anti-tarnish shield.

    Promising review: "I keep these in my purse and use them on my wedding rings, silver John Hardy bracelets, gold bangles β€” and every time it looks like I’ve just left the jewelry store after getting my jewelry cleaned. It’s amazing how much black stuff comes off of your jewelry!" β€”Mrs. Dwain Denniston

    Get a pack of 25 wipes from Amazon for $8.73 or two packs for $11.25.

    20. A kitchen drawer organizer with slightly raised/stackable sections that'll be the simple-but-much needed-upgrade you need in order to avoid having to fumble around for one dang fork in a messy pile of utensils every time. Efficient, space-saving, and safe β€” because having rogue knives mixed in with everything else is probably not a great idea!


    Promising review: "I don't have many drawers, and the silverware drawer seems like there should be so much more I see these weird silverware trays. I figure, why not? I love them! I got two and put one on each side of the drawer. This allowed me to put random things in between them that I had a hard time finding a place for. I should probably mention that I have a service for 16, and it is REALLY, REALLY heavy Oneida flatware. I have a standard size drawer and even the height is fine. They also stay where the heck you put them, even with drawer liner and the way that my husband slams those drawers shut! All around a great purchase!" β€”Stephanie M. Campbell

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in two colors, as well as version for cutlery + gadgets and just knives).

    21. Small hydrocolloid Mighty Patches or large Mighty Patch surface treatments that'll suck out pus and fluids, and more quickly heal body blemishes that pop up on your chest, back, or wherever else they have no business being. They'll also prevent you from actually *popping* them yourself, 'cause as tempting as it might be....don't do it.

    Amazon Customer / Via, Whitney / Via

    Promising review: "Whoa, these things work! I have acne on my face, chest, and back. Occasional at this point in my life (aside from that time of the month), but still VERY annoying. I have a terrible habit of picking at the blemishes on my chest and back too, especially the whiteheads. I bought these thinking they might halt my urges to pick, and to my surprise it completely sucked out all of the grossness of a pesky pimple that I had (you know, the ones that you pop but they keep coming back). It helped me not focus on it in the four-ish hours it was on as well. Definitely worth a try if you suffer from large, painful whiteheads." β€”Megan Shoewalter

    Get them from Amazon: a 36-pack of original patches for $12.50, a 39-pack of Invisible+ patches for $17.99, or a 10-pack of large surface patches for $17.99

    22. If you want to get fancy, Peace Out Microneedling Brightening Dots to diminish dark spots by penetrating hard-hitting ingredients like niacinamide, licorice extract, and tranexamic acid deep within your skin β€” those little spikes you see are dissolving "micro-channels" that help lighten your dark spots in half the time that it takes normal products.

    Sephora, @peaceoutskincare / Via

    All you have to do is apply a dot to totally clean skin and gently press it into your skin for 5–10 seconds. And fret not, they won't irritate sensitive skin or hurt like professional microneedling! Also, their Sephora page says it "best treats dark spots from post-acne inflammatory hyperpigmentation, sun spots, and age spots."

    Promising review: "I have a litany of dark spots from acne and dermatillomania issues. These spots definitely helped with any resulting hyperpigmentation. It did take a couple of nights to see results, but it did lighten my spots much quicker than waiting for them to heal on their own. I definitely recommend abiding by the instructions and using them only a few times a week with a day-or-so's break in between. I used them on back-to-back nights for a while and noticed some irritation from constantly peeling and sticking the adhesive ring on the same spot. Other than that, these are great! I imagine if you first use a Peace Out Acne Dot to reduce a pimple and most of its redness, then follow it up with these for any remaining discoloration, you'll be golden." β€”RedFoxHeidi

    Get a 12-pack from Sephora for $28.

    23. A deshedding pet grooming glove with a few key functions: removing excess fur, saving you from cleaning said excess fur from your floors and furniture, stimulating your pet's skin oils and improving the softness/shine of their coat, and giving them a super luxurious massage.

    Amazon Customer / Via

    Plus you can throw this bad boy right into the washer.

    Promising review: "My cat never really enjoyed being brushed; we had one of those ones with flexible metal bristles. He would sit for a very short time and then walk away. Not anymore! My cat is very skittish so the sound of the Velcro scared him in the beginning, but he quickly got used to it. He lays still, purrs, allows me to get his under belly a bit, and even allows me to groom his fur 'against the grain,' which he would never do before. Love it!" β€”Alicia Mead

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in right or left hand styles).

    24. A ring adjuster for resizing on the quick 'n' easy without having to go to a jeweler or *gasp* buying a new ring all together β€” especially when it's something as irreplaceable as your engagement or wedding ring! Wide knuckles and loose rings, you've met your match.

    Amazon, new mom 2 / Via

    Promising review (for the photo on the right): "I have thin fingers (size 4) and my rings always spin all the way around. So I either skip wearing them, or I leave them at my office desk all day and put them back on when I am leaving.

    This product was very easy to install. I used both sizes, one for my bridal set that is soldered together, and the thin one for my other ring. You can customize the fit by using more or less turns of the twine. It will be fairly easy to remove and attach again on swollen finger days. And it's super cheap. I think I should be able to resize 10 rings without having to reuse any of the twine. Very satisfied!" β€”new mom 2

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99 (for four) or $8.99 (for 18).

    25. A nifty magnetic glasses holder to keep your glasses, ID badges, and earphones within reach β€” aka right on top of your pocketless shirts β€” instead of always losing them to wherever you placed them last.


    Promising review: "I've used decorative, single-magnet holders for my ID badge with retractable pull cord for a few years now, but they were never strong enough to handle the abuse of a nurse badging in and out of departments all night. I gave this a shot. It's THE BEST holder I've had yet! It can hold clip or slide holders. With two magnets, it doesn't budge no matter how many times I use it. Recommending it to coworkers!" β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    26. A reusable RocketBook Everlast digital notebook that'll give you the best of both analog and digital worlds β€” once you've written and drawn out your notes by hand, you can easily snap and store all of your notes digitally, and then wipe your pages with a damp cloth and reuse to your heart's content!

    Amazon, Amazon Customer / Via

    Once scanned, the RocketBook app will automatically send your notes to preselected apps or email. There are QR codes on each page that'll let the app know what page number you're scanning, and you can also mark each page with one of several special symbols that the app will read and send the notes on that page to the location you've matched with that symbol. It comes with a pen but also works with any Pilot Frixion writing utensils.

    Promising review (for the photo on the right): "EXCEPTIONAL! This will change your life! This product amazed me and exceeded my expectations. It works exceptionally and as described. The Rocketbook app is so simple and easy to use. The scanning is perfect β€” it captures the colors, exposes the page with the right lighting, and crops and adjusts the page properly. Each scan takes less than a second, and you can combine multiple pages into one scan and upload them as one document. This is brilliant and I'm so glad I purchased it for school. I have seven classes, and so I assigned each symbol in the notebook to my respective Google Drive folders. The Frixion highlighters and pens erase easily with the included erasers on the pens and effortlessly with a damp microfiber cloth (I provided the link to a very compact microfiber cloth that I use, I'd highly recommend it). Anyway, the product is great, and definitely worth the money." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.49+ (executive size) or $21.21+ (letter size). Also available in a small notepad version.

    27. A 100% natural soy wax candle to mask and neutralize lingering pet-related smells, so you enjoy snuggling with your cuddlemuffins (and their general presence, lol) without having to breathe in the aftereffects of a major poop. And they come in such lovely scents, like Mango Peach, so it's a win all around!


    Pet House also supports nonprofit, no-kill animal rescue groups!

    Promising review: "We are foster parents to a LOT of kittens and while we wait for them to find their forever homes β€” even though we clean the litter twice daily β€” things can get smelly. I was certainly skeptical about this candle because all the reviews heralded it as some sort of miracle product. But it totally is. The first night I came home after it had been delivered, my partner had already lit it and I walked into a house that DID NOT SMELL LIKE CAT, despite there being eleven kittens actively everywhere. Poop smell, gone. Kitten fart smell, GONE. General messy kitten smell, GONE. This helps us feel a little more sane while we take care of our own cats as well. We will continue buying FOR SURE β€” the candy cane smell is nice: not overwhelming, not too sweet. I'm looking forward to trying new ones as the seasons change." β€”Elizabeth Lincoln

    Get it from Amazon for $21.95 (available in 14 scents).

    28. A super compact and waterproof backpack that'll fold up neatly into a tiny bag when it's not in use but fit A TON of stuff for any hikes, day trips, or light travel on the horizon. There's a roomy interior, a secondary compartment, two side pockets, and breathable/adjustable straps.


    Promising review: "This is the best pack I've ever owned. I don't use a bladder in it, but I can easily carry more than half a liter of water (two 20 oz. bottles in the side pockets and a 32 oz. bottle in the main compartment) in it. I generally keep a rain jacket in the main compartment and can fit another light layer in, both in addition to a quart-sized bottle of water. Oh, and I carry my wallet and bug spray in there too. I carry food in the medium-size compartment, as well as tissues, bandages, etc. in the small upper compartment. The best thing is the way the pack fits me and I really don't feel the weight I'm carrying at all. (I don't use the waist belt since it's actually too high for me, and I'm short-waisted.) Did I mention I absolutely LOVE this pack?!? Love the bright pink color too. Update, May 2018: I've been using this pack for two years and it's still going strong (still a bright color too). Still *the best day pack ever.*" β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99 (available in three colors and two sizes).

    29. An incredibly soft and reversible microfiber comforter with the perfect amount of hotel-like softness without weighing you down or overheating β€” and best yet, there are corner tabs to help this bb stay securely in place inside your duvet cover of choice!


    Promising review: "Exactly what I was looking for! I live in Miami so I’ve always been looking for bedding that won’t capture too much heat or any at all. I’ve tried a bunch in the past, but THIS IS IT. It’s truly lightweight and perfect to put inside a duvet. It lays pretty flat and isn’t too puffy or thick. I just purchased all linen bedding and this comforter is absolutely made to be inside a duvet. The linen duvet has strings in the inside corners and THIS COMFORTER has little loops on the corners so the comforter can be tied to the duvet and never slide around. Genius! Maybe I’m new to the bedding world and missed this in the description, but it’s like it was meant for the duvet. Needless to say, it’s the only comforter/duvet insert I’d ever recommend to anyone needing something light, not too puffy or bulky, yet still keeps you cozy." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in twin, twin XL, full, queen, oversized queen, king, oversized king, and California king sizing and seven colors).

    30. A curved butter knife will make you wonder how you've gone through life without it β€” it's perfectly shaped to slice, and more importantly, slather the ideal amount of butter on your cobs (evenly and all overrrr)!


    Promising review: "How did I ever get along without this?!? And why have I never seen anything similar before? It just makes so much sense to have a spreader that conforms to the curve of corn. Makes buttering corn on the cob a snap β€” like half the time than with a regular butter knife. Which is amazing, when making a lot of corn at once. Sure, it's a little pricey for a single use gadget, but I really love it. We eat a lot of corn during the summer and I have enjoyed using this spreader. A+ for originality and function." β€”MaryPies

    Get it from Amazon for $8.49.

    31. A slim but stretchy/surprisingly roomy wallet smartphone case, so you can keep your essentials in reach literally 24/7 and not have to dig through your purse in front of the cashier every single time (and hear the people waiting in line behind you deeply sighing).


    Promising review: "I love it. Out of about the 10 or so that I have tried, this is the best one. It actually holds more cards then they recommend. The material stretches. I put in three credit cards, an ID, and about four business cards. It’s super sturdy and still fits in my pocket. I think this one might last the lifetime of my phone. Honestly though if it lasts over a year I will be extremely happy and I am so far. If I upgrade my phone I will be looking for another one of these." β€”Jack S.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes iPhone 7/8 through XS Max). Check out all the sizes available here.

    32. A Rent the Runway Unlimited subscription for anyone who's sick and tired of shopping for high-quality but still relatively affordable clothes, as well as completing the arduous task of picking out an outfit every morning! What's better than fancy, luxury-brand clothes you can rotate through and toss back into the mail one you're done? I think I just convinced myself to try this service out ASAP.

    The gist: You can rent up to four styles at a time and keep them as long (or as little) as you'd like, two-day shipping is free, and they'll do all the cleaning for you β€” there's even rental insurance involved, for all ye clumsy folks! You also have the option of buying anything you really love at a discount.

    Get a subscription from Rent the Runway starting at $69.

    33. A Headache Hat to store in the fridge and then throw on whenever you feel a headache or migraine coming on β€” it's pretty much a collection of 24 ice cubes individually wrapped in a thin layer of plastic and then surrounded by a giant cushion for ~gentle compression~. And it works for other body parts, like your neck, arms, or back!


    It also comes with a freezer storage bag for your convenience.

    Promising review: "Backstory: I've had migraines for over 22 years. About five years ago, they turned chronic. Headache Hat changed my life. I know that sounds wild, but hear me out. Anyone with daily, chronic pain knows that it can take a toll not only on your life, but your family's. I've been stuck in dark rooms with blinding migraines more times than you would think is possible. While they help dull the pain, traditional ice packs are a pain to use because you either have to lie down on them or sit holding them to your head. I've tried almost every single wearable ice pack contraption out there, and they are all AWFUL! They are either uncomfortable or only stay cold for about 15 minutes. The Headache Hat is not only comfortable, but lasts for HOURS! I love the fact that you can move the little ice cubes around within the band, which means that I can place the cubes directly on certain pressure points like my temples or forehead. It's a life-changer because I can now wear it around while participating in activities with my husband, taking my dogs out, or even driving if needed (of course not covering the eyes)! It doesn't look completely ridiculous if you need to wear it outside. I am a Headache Hat fangirl β€” this thing is AMAZING and has allowed me to do so many things I wasn't able to in the past!" β€”Rachel G.

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in two sizes).

    34. Or an ergonomic Q-flex acupressure massage tool with a natural hand grip can keep your arms from crying out in pain while you use the pear-shaped tip to apply pressure to specific points and knead that tension all the way out, where it belongs. No expensive massage appointment needed!


    Promising review: "I originally saw this on Shark Tank and thought it was a good idea. I have purchased at least 50 different pain relief and massage tools over the years and most don't do much or you can't easily hold the item in place to get relief. But this is amazing. Everyone that has tried it, including my niece with Lupus and my massage therapist can't believe how great it is. It can take pain away in minutes. In love! You will not be disappointed and you do not need to have arm strength to use." β€”PrincessandBuddiesMom

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    35. A Bawdy Shake It Butt Mask that'll leave your booty lookin' moisturized, brighter, and all around thriving in just 10-15 minutes post-shower β€” thanks to a little help from collagen, chamomile, aloe, blue algae, oat, and mineral kelp. Like the packaging says, shake it, bb!

    Urban Outfitters

    Get one from Urban Outfitters for $9 or Amazon for $9.95 (available in four varieties, as well as a four-pack for $32).

    36. A smart fragrance diffuser, a pleasing device that'll let you control the timing/schedule and intensity of your scent of choice through your phone (and via an app) β€” and it'll also double as a cute night light!


    It comes with one Pura diffuser (duh) and two fragrance vials, which last 15 days each.

    Get it from Anthropologie for $59 (available in two scents). You can buy pairs of refills for $24 each.

    37. Hard-hitting Urban Decay glitter gels for a statement-making lewk you can actually create in 10 seconds. They apply easily without any mess/fallout, glide on like a dream, stay put literally all day or night, and be on the receiving end of lots of compliments. Put in on your eyes, face, or body, and you will look like a gorgeous disco ball for up to nine hours.

    @urbandecaycosmetics / Via, Sephora

    Not only are these gels part of UD's Sparkle Out Loud Collection, but they're the *best* part of the collection, in my humble opinion. They're incredibly glittery yet totally manageable β€” meaning they're self-adhesive, not messy, easy to work with, and don't come off until you want them to (of course, with any glitter, it might take a little more time to take off, and I'm ok with that). I love to smear them around my eyes and on my cheekbones for extra flair.

    Promising review: "Once you put them on they don’t move at all; I can run my finger over the glitter and it doesn’t come off. I wore the Party Monster shade today and got so many compliments! :) I will be purchasing other colors." β€”LCRAW

    Get them from Sephora for $22 each (available in six shades).

    38. A water-filtering LifeStraw for adventure seekers who, understandably, have their limits when it comes to...ingested liquids. Rest assured that you can quench your thirst without taking in any undesirable waterborne bacteria and parasites!


    The straw's microfiltration membrane eliminates bacteria and parasites and filters up to 1000 liters of water **safely** (aka without iodine, chlorine, or other chemicals), so you can safely drink from any available water source. Stay hydrated, folks!

    Promising review: "I used this on a hike recently; tried different configurations as shown, with the drinking straight out of the river, and out of a wide-mouth bottle. The flow-rate through the LifeStraw is a little reminiscent of drinking a really thick milkshake, which is understandable considering the filter basically gets everything. When I filled up my Nalgene with water from the stream, I could see the sediment start to settle; I even made sure to get some with the straw just to see. Worked like a charm. You just need to remember to blow into it afterwards to clear out the straw." β€”Kingston

    Get it from Amazon for $17.47.

    39. A delightful mini beauty fridge to keep all of your beloved skincare goodies in cool, tip-top shape β€” including but not limited to a facial roller, sheet masks, and that any products with active ingredients that need to be stored in a cool, dry place, like your vitamin C serums. You can even store snacks or soda in it β€” literally do you!

    Urban Outfitters

    It also comes with a AC/DC adapter and USB adapter, and the dimensions are 10.2”l x 7.7”w x 10.5”h. Tip: keep some paper towels on the bottom of your fridge to catch any condensation, and of course, switch 'em out once in a while.

    Promising review: "Uh, OK! I thought this might be a silly addition to my beauty routine until I tried it! I love applying cool drops to my eyes and cool serum to my face every morning and night. It has plenty of space for 6+ beauty products. Highly recommend." β€”Abbaygrace

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $59.95 (available in five colors/patterns).
