    1. Intensive-healing hand cream from Gold Bond that'll help repair dry and cracked hands, especially as the cold starts to settle in. This nongreasy, hypoallergenic formula will have you feeling moisturized for up to 24 hours!

    Promising review: “What an effective hand cream! My job requires a lot of hand-washing, which of course results in terribly dry hands. This cream is so soothing to the skin without feeling greasy and absorbs quickly. It's the first cream that has worked well on a couple of persistent dry patches. It has a fresh scent that isn't cloying and doesn't overwhelm.” —kathyd

    Get it from Amazon for $3.57.

    2. Memory foam slippers for keeping your feet warm as you do your fall cleaning around the house! Because these have an anti-slip rubber sole, you can even wear them outside.

    Promising review: “The microfiber/fleece material inside the slipper is so soft and warming! I like that it gives the top of the foot room to move rather than being stiff, but that it is also not too loose that it would slide off when walking. The memory foam on the sole of the slippers is also very comfortable to walk on. The rubber bottom is nice because I am able to wear these both inside and outside.” —Traci P

    Get it from Amazon for $24.96 (available in women's sizes 5–14 and in eight colors).

    3. An electric foot warmer if your comforter just isn't doing the trick. With three adjustable heating levels, you'll be able to get snug in no time.

    Promising review: “I have Raynaud's disease, which makes my feet and hands very susceptible to feeling cold and numb with lower temperatures — even indoors! I got this items to put under my desk. I slide my toesies in and they stay toasty! No complaints. This was a great purchase.” —JaneH 

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in two colors).

    4. A chunky, cable-knit infinity scarf to protect your neck from gusty winds and make you look like you stepped right off of a fall-themed fashion runway.,

    Promising review: “I bought these scarves in two colors and they’re amazing!!! I’ve gotten so many compliments and been asked where I got these. They’re so soft and warm and the quality is incredible. They don’t feel like cheap material at all. You can’t beat quality scarves like this for such a low price! Also, they don’t shed and put fuzzies all over my clothes, which is another added bonus since all my other expensive scarves do." —Christyann

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 24 colors).

    Poppy & Pout

    Poppy & Pout is a small business making eco-friendly, 100%-natural lip balms. Keeping skincare simple since 2014.

    Promising review: “I've actually never written a review despite years and $$$$ spent on Amazon, but this product has earned a glowing one! I am VERY picky about my lip balm and have tried a bazillion different kinds over the years, but always end up going back to Burt's Bees peppermint as my go-to. So, I ordered sweet mint to make a more accurate side-by-side assessment. As far as consistency, I'd say Poppy & Pout has reached perfection. I thought Burt's had it, but it's actually these guys” —Shilo 

    Get it from Poppy & Pout on Amazon for $9.95 (available in 10 scents).

    6. A lightweight quilted jacket that's obviously a fall must-have! Its oversized and stylishly boxy silhouette take this classic style to the next level. This is the perfect jacket to stay comfy during this seasonal transition.

    Promising review: "When I get my monthly, I use a heating pad to bring down my cramps, and mine recently broke. I heard about this through social media and thought why not give it a try. I used it and it was amazing. I have trouble sleeping and the lavender scent really helped me go to sleep, and it heats up and stays warm for quite a while. This is definitely worth buying and worth putting money toward. it looks very cute and is very soft so if you get your monthly and you have a hard time sleeping I would definitely use this. it is not a waste of money or time at all." —Ash Wang

    Promising review: "JUST WHAT I NEEDED! This weatherstrip worked great for me. It came in two attached strips with an adhesive backing. The strips can be separated as needed. It was easy to peel the backing and install the strips. I installed both strips on the door casing where the door meets it when closed. It immediately stopped the draft that was coming in around the door." —RH in TN

    Get it from Amazon for $7.97 (available in four colors).

    10. And a pack of two door draft stoppers with adhesive strips that make for easy install. No more losing precious warm air when you turn your heater on!

    Promising review: "I originally bought these to keep crickets out of my house, because I have large gaps under both of my doors and a cricket problem in my yard.

    13. A pair of waterproof Columbia hiking boots so that — rain or shine — you'll be able to comfortably trek through treacherous trails this fall.,

    reviewer image of the portable space heater on a dresser

    Promising review: “For such a small heater, this puts out a lot of heat and the noise level is low.

    Promising review: "I'm sitting all day at home during the COVID outbreak, and I was looking for something I could use now and in the future. It is intense!

    You'll get the charging coaster, adapter, and a quick-start guide.

    Promising review: “I have been using this mug for about four months now. Nonheated mugs are dead to me. I usually leave the mug sitting on its coaster, so I cannot attest to the battery life. I often get called away from my desk and this mug sits and faithfully keeps my coffee warm. It will shut itself off after three hours of inactivity, or if it is empty. Otherwise, I can leave it sitting on my desk, come back in an hour, and enjoy my still hot coffee. If you find yourself returning to a cold cup of coffee on a regular basis, then this is a godsend.” —Jon

A quick setup and instant fire lets us enjoy our patio when we have an hour or two. Nice big fire if needed or go low if you're just looking for little ambience. Cooldown is reasonable and even faster in cold weather. It is large to store so we needed to rearrange a few things, but that was OK." —Amazon Customer

So my sister bought one last week. I tried hers and fell in love after only the first use. I'm a man that's suffered from a dry, oily, patchy scalp as well as thin hair my entire life. As I used this, I could literally feels the bristles stimulating and cleaning my scalp. My hair is fuller, softer, and the flakiness is completely gone. I am now a firm believer in this product. Using your fingers doesn't even hold a candle to this brush. 10/10 would recommend!" —Timothy P
