A peeling and brightening serum to clear up hyperpigmentation and even out the skin tone. It contains hydroquinone (for brightening dark spots), salicylic acid (for penetrating the skin and drying up breakouts), vitamin C (also a brightening agent), and a host of other helpful ingredients.
🗣️🗣️🗣️: Anything you put on your skin that’s meant to peel it is probably something you should consult with your dermatologist about first. You also need to be using sunscreen with an adequate SPF to keep your skin safe while it’s peeling away layers of dead skin. Several reviewers also noted that it does sting but it delivers dramatic results they’re pleased with. All the more reason to check it with a real doctor before dunking it on your face. Cheers to happy skin!

Promising review: “I WAS EXTREMELY HESITANT at first before ordering this product and considering using it on my skin. I don’t typically have sensitive skin but you honestly never know… BUT, this product has been doing miracles for my skin!! I’m so happy about the progress. I watched all the YouTube videos I could find, read thorough reviews, and can truly say I’m happy and more confident with the outcome so far. I was diagnosed with PCOS last year and severe hyperpigmentation has been one of the side effects. I was considering laser hair removal but this has been working. I started using this product 1/16/20… I have been using it twice a day but I alternate depending on my mood and if I have time in morning… I do exfoliate every day and night. Going to keep using it to see if the scars lighten any further and my skin peels a little bit more bringing in the new skin!” — V. Forest
An attachable wine aerator so you can get the perfect glass of tasty, aromatic wine straight from the bottle with a single pour. No more letting it sit to aerate. It’s sipping time as soon as it hits your wine flute, boo! Reviewers seem especially pleased at how it improves the taste of their cheaper wine selections.
Five-star reviews: 2,830+
Promising review: “I love wine! Cheap wine that tastes good? Even better. This turned a bottle of two-buck chuck into a really nice Chardonnay. So I tried it on a better bottle of wine I usually keep on hand. Wow! I didn’t think that $20 wine could get better but it did. Box wine? Improved! Really good bottles? Improved. About two months after I bought it, the tab that locks the two pieces together broke off. I was skeptical that the lifetime guarantee would be honored. I have bought things here before that had lifetime guarantee only to find the company no longer exists. I sent my claim in and they offered to replace it and even expedited it to me for free. Can’t say enough about their customer service. Friendly, helpful, and fast.” — Hope 979
Price: $15.99 (available in two colors and with a lifetime warranty)

Ecotools Makeup Brush Shampoo so you can clean those brushes regularly! It’ll get your makeup brushes back looking like new and it’s also, ya’ know, the hygienic thing to do!
Five-star reviews: 2,860+
Promising review: “This cleanser is great! It fully removes all makeup from the brushes without leaving them feeling beat up. (I’m not the most gentle when it comes to cleaning brushes). I use a thick foundation that soaks heavily into the bristles but this removed it all. At first, I thought the formula was a bit thin but after using it, I learned that a little bit goes a long way. It has a nice lather and it easily rinses out product. I use this with a MelodySusie brush cleaner scrubby. I was able to clean my brushes much faster than normal, and I feel more confident that I got all the makeup off the bristles. This has a very slight (not strong at all) scent of grapefruit. It’s refreshing without me having to worry about it irritating my face or leaving a fragrance left on my brushes.” — Kryssy
A Himalayan salt lamp to give any room in your house a warm glow-up. It’ll look pretty and earthy just sitting out in the daytime and nice and cozy when you turn on its light at night.
Five-star reviews: 8,670+
Promising review: “This was a Christmas gift for my brother and his girlfriend. I had purchased a salt lamp last year for my daughter on Amazon and I was very happy with it so I figured we’d get another nice one this time around for my brother’s new home. Nice? Oh no. This rock was GORGEOUS. It was a hefty size and the coloring was awesome! It had a lovely tone in itself but it also had several just amazing streaks of dark pinkish coloring through the sides. It’s a good thing I didn’t open this before I gifted it or I might have kept it!” — Kindle Customer

Five-star reviews: 5,890+
Promising review: “I have been wearing this for an hour at a time. I have honestly been able to tell a huge difference in my posture! It’s almost like it won’t let you slouch. It’s been super helpful during workouts too! You can’t even really tell that it’s on! Or, if you’re a college student it feels like a backpack is their except without the weight of it!” — Niqui Higbee

Five-star reviews: 4,680+
Promising review: “OK… So I have to do a little review on this product BECAUSE I have had a stopped-up kitchen sink and have LITERALLY tried EVERYTHING down to the industrial products with NO luck. I decided to go on Amazon and read a few reviews. This is the one I decided to go with. I only used one chamber, let it sit for an hour, and then used boiling water. My sink is NO LONGER stopped up!!! I saved a plumber bill and this was $11.97. HUGE win for this woman!!” — Tabpeach
Public service annoucement: Ya’ gotta be careful with the charcoal peeps! Doctors have confirmed that activated charcoal can whiten your teeth (yay!) but excessive usage can weaken the enamel of your teeth (boooo!). I recommend you use this toothpaste to whiten your teeth and keep the tube around for when you need it occasionally. Everything in moderation, peeps! Ah yes, and you should also understand that activated charcoal toothpaste is good for surface-level stains made by coffee, wine, dark foods, etc… For deeper stains beneath the surface of your teeth, your best bet is the dentist’s office. Last thing: This toothpaste is vegan, and it’s fluoride-, peroxide-, and gluten-free!
Five-star reviews: 6,660+
Promising review: “I developed some coffee stains on my two front teeth earlier this summer. I could not get them off with regular brushing and they were making me very self-conscious. I found this product and, after less than a week, the stains are completely gone. Now, I’m going to work on the yellowing of my bottom teeth. Great product!” — Laurapgh
OLLY gummies with melatonin to help you get the sound sleep you and your hectic schedule deserve.
Five-star reviews: 1,570+
Sam Wieder sings these gummies’ praises. Check out why here:
“Here to say that I have recently tried these, and I LOVE them. I have anxiety and because of it, there are just some nights, where getting my brain to calm down and stop overthinking every to-do list and human interaction I’ve had throughout my 25-year-life is impossible. I’ll take the recommended two gummies about 20 minutes before I know I’m ready to go to bed, go through my nighttime routine of washing my face and brushing my teeth, and by the time it’s time for bed, I’m feeling relaxed and sleepy enough that I have a much easier time falling asleep and staying asleep. I also love the fact that I don’t wake up feeling groggy or ‘hungover.’ I just wake up feeling refreshed. The gummies themselves taste like a mix of blackberry and mint, so it tastes a tad medicinal, but you get used to it!!”
Price: $12.42 (in 25-, 50-, and 70-count bottles)
Argan oil-based shampoo and conditioner that so many reviewers declare will take care of any oiliness and unhealthy buildup on the hair and scalp.
The set is sulfate-free and safe for all hair types and color treatments.
Five-star reviews: 2,990+
Promising review: “My hair has never been so healthy. It used to break at the ends so frequently despite trims every two months. Now, it already feels so healthy. I’ve only used the shampoo and conditioner twice over four days and I already notice a great difference. My hair is usually very frizzy for up to 10 to 14ish hours after washing, even with defrizz products put in. Using this product, my hair dries so nicely. I love it and I’m totally hooked. Also, now I use an organic leave-in organic serum I made myself of argan oil, vegetable glycerin, sandalwood essential oil, and lemon essential oil.” — Sam

Promising review: “I have a lot of hair. A LOT. Like, ‘wow, is that Wookiee over there?’ LOTS. I have looked into having a third arm surgically implanted. Is this a thing? Who would do it? Vascular surgery?… These are the questions that keep me up at night🤔 because my shoulders are so tired holding up a dryer and a round brush for eternity. I briefly considered making a workout video (‘Toned Arms: The Hairdryer Workout’) but was informed by fitness people that there isn’t a market for a 75-minute focus on the anterior deltoids. I almost have to wake up BEFORE I GO TO SLEEP in order to have enough time to dry my hair before work. This thing took me eight minutes. I naturally assumed, upon finishing, that I had entered some sort of Amazon-created beauty time warp. I checked with my husband in the next room, and in fact, I did not go through a blowout wormhole. The silkier-than-silk style was accomplished by this miracle of a brush in eight minutes. Several more minutes were still lost to running my hands through my hair and flicking it over my shoulder while smiling coquettishly in the mirror. If you struggle with an overabundance of hair as I do, then seriously consider giving this amazing contraption a try.” — Chris
Price: $27+ (available in four colors)
A blackhead remover kit to help you safely remove blackheads from your skin without spreading bacteria or causing unnecessary scarring. You’ll get five needles for different pimple sizes, plus a case to store them in when you aren’t using them.
reviewer even noted that these blackhead tools helped them clear out blackheads from their son’s ears!
Five-star reviews: 1,890+
Promising review: “I have had blackheads on my nose since I can remember and they just keep getting bigger. I have tried the peeling masks, monthly facials, etc… but that wasn’t enough. I ordered this kit (along with a microdermabrasion one) to try and fight back… It gets EVERYTHING out and I don’t feel like I am damaging my skin. It’s very easy to use. I use this kit two to three times a week and have noticed a BIG difference in my pore size. I like to use this before I put on any skincare or makeup products. Just quickly get a few noticeable areas and then apply toner, lotion, and primer before makeup. After three months of use, I found this kit works MUCH better than the microdermabrasion tool I also ordered. These are just easier and quicker! A few times a week, I can quickly clean out my pores after washing my face. My pore size has noticeably shrunk.” — Sherri Lee
Price: $7.99+ (available in three colors)
Affresh dishwasher tablets that’ll remove odor-causing residue so your dishes actually come out clean. These trusty tablets can be tossed in the machine while it’s empty or full and you only have to use ’em once a month.
Five-star reviews: 2,130+
Promising review: “After using this product, I am happy to report that my $5 investment saved me over $500. I was ready to replace my dishwasher due to super cloudy glasses, residue, and dishes just not getting clean. Then, I became aware that the water softener was no longer doing its job so I had the rental company replace it. Dishwasher performance improved somewhat. I decided to do two more loads before deciding to purchase a new one. Then I saw a product test review for Affresh. I was ordering some stuff from Amazon anyway so I added that to my order. When it came, I tossed one of the tablets into the bottom of the full machine per the instructions and ran the regular cycle. I did not expect the results I got! My glassware that I thought was permanently etched and ruined came out like new. Same with cutlery. The difference is unbelievable. I will use this faithfully every month, as recommended. I can even put it on my subscribe and save order so I will get a new pack every six months. I am amazed!” — Sheila
Price: $5.33 (available in a six-pack)
Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara so you can get bold and beautiful lashes whenever you want — no falsies involved.
Five-star reviews: 4,430+
Promising review: “After using Lights, Camera, Lashes by Tarte Cosmetics for the past year, I got tired of breaking the bank over mascara. My sister suggested Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect and I IMMEDIATELY fell in love. It provides dramatic length and great volume. I can honestly say I can’t stop looking at my eyelashes in the mirror every single day because of how awesome they look. Also, it is very long-wearing. I go from an eight-hour workday right to the gym and sweat like crazy and this stuff doesn’t budge! I love it!!” — Carrie E. Miller
A FURemover squeegee broom for easily pulling pet hair (and um, maybe even your hair?) up from carpets and almost every other surface. While a shedding pet is the focus, it’ll even work with cleaning up water, dirt, and dust!
Five-star reviews: 4,800+
Promising review: “I really didn’t expect this to work. We’ve had short-haired cats for years and I had a rubber upholstery brush that never seemed to do anything. Well, we recently got a dog — a black Great Pyrenees mix. There is fur everywhere. Our downstairs is all hard flooring with area rugs and I hate lugging my Shark vacuum every couple of days but just daily sweeping with a regular broom wasn’t cutting it. I decided to take a chance on this broom and I am so happy I did. It takes some elbow grease but it gets the fur off the area rug in my living room… Not only is it great for getting the fur off rugs, but it’s also even better on the hard floors. My regular broom catches some of the hair (which I then have to clean off by hand) but much of it just swirls away in the breeze the sweeping creates. This broom actually collects even the tiny stray hairs and deposits them in the dust pile without me having to get my hands dirty (literally).” — Sarah R.
Vacuum-sealed bags to save more space in your house so you de-clutter your life like a pro. Move over, Marie Kondo!
Five-star reviews: 8,420+
Peep what BuzzFeed writer
Jasmin Suknanan had to say about how well her bags worked:
“Sooo, my closet is a mess. I admit it. And since I promised myself I’d do better, I decided to get these storage bags to see if they’ll really give me a neat place to keep off-season clothes without taking up too much space in my room. I folded my clothes and stuffed them in the bag, careful not to fill the bag past the ‘STOP’ line since the instructions say you could risk re-inflating the bag if you do. I zipped up the bag and used the included vacuum pump to pump out the air, although you can also use a normal vacuum to do this. It took a few minutes, but I watched the bag deflate before my eyes. The flatter the bag becomes, the harder it should be to pump the air out. I stopped once it became really difficult to pull the handle on the pump and marveled at my work. I was pretty dang impressed, TBH. I didn’t have any issues with the bag re-inflating and it’s been two months so far. Yay for a cleaner closet!!!”
Price: $21.99+ (available as individuals in sizes M-L or in five- or six-packs of sizes S-L)
Hyaluronic acid that’ll help your skin hold on to moisture better. It’s also meant to improve skin texture, smooth out fine lines, decrease blemishes, and give the skin an overall natural glow.
Reviewers with a variety of skin needs — including dryness, fine lines, texture, etc. — raved about this product!
Five-star reviews: 6,390+
Promising review: “Amazing product! It has kept my skin tight and I’m slowly seeing results for my fine lines. I have been using it for two months now and I’ve stopped expecting overnight results with a skincare product. Nothing will show you progress within a week. I loved this product so much that I bought a second bottle since I’m a little past halfway on the first one already. Update: Six months later, I’m on my third bottle and I will not trade it for anything else! I use it in my 10-step Korean skincare routine and it has helped transform my skin!” — CM
Eyelash growth serum to help give you the thick, swoon-worthy eye flutter you love serving. It’ll definitely come in handy if eyelash extensions have thinned out your real lashes.
The serum is meant to be hypoallergenic but spot test to be sure! It’s also meant to start delivering results after 60 days of use and its best results after 90 days of use.
Five-star reviews: 15,370+
Promising review: “I don’t write reviews often but this product is amazing! I have been using it before bed for probably a little over a month. I got eyelash extensions all summer and they really did a number on my real ones. This serum helped so much.” — Amanda
Bottle Bright tablets so you no longer have to come up with science experiments just to lift the stains and gunk from the bottom of your water bottles.
Five-star reviews: 1,870+
Peep what BuzzFeed writer
Ali Napoli had to say about these cool tablets:
“I just bought these because my water bottle was so foggy and gross. I filled it with warm water, dropped in a tablet, and waited for 10 to 15 minutes. When I rinsed it out, it was clean! I was so thankful because there’s no graceful way for me to get all the way to the bottom of the bottle with a sponge. Plus the tablets are chlorine-free and environmentally safe! They work on stainless steel bottles, plastic, glass, porcelain, and silicone.”
Price: $8+ (available in a pack of 12 or 36)

The gnarliest pimples I’ve ever had are magically and dramatically almost gone!” — Nikki Berry

A Conair fabric defuzzer so you can finally get those fuzzy, warm feelings back about your favorite sweatshirt or your old faithful couch.
Five-star reviews: 6,100+
Promising review: “I bought this on a whim in last attempts to save my favorite duvet cover. The pills had gotten to the point where it was seriously uncomfortable to sleep with them getting all up in my leg space. I thought I was going to have to get a new duvet cover entirely but then along came this lil’ baby. Not only is my duvet cover basically brand new, but I also have found a new hobby. I’m depilling everything — sweatshirts, leggings, blankets, socks, and anything that looks like it needs some love. It does the job quickly and leaves everything looking fresh. I’m obsessed. I can’t stop. I should send this back. I’ve started asking if my neighbors need anything depilled. I’m going to buy one of these for everyone in my life. Everyone needs to own this. Take it away from me.” — Sydney Jensen
Price: $11.99+ (available in six colors and in battery-operated or rechargeable options)

Promising review: “This is absolutely the best product. It saved my itchy Goldendoodle! We tried changing food, Benadryl, medicated shampoo, fish oil, everything you can imagine… Nothing worked long-term. He was itching his face so badly he would make himself bleed. He had sores and scabs all over his face and neck. I bought these because they had good reviews and I was desperate. It changed his life! He no longer scratches AT ALL! His coat looks great and all of his sores are healed. He’s the happiest he’s been which makes me a very happy momma. He is also very picky and never eats treats… He eats these every time so that’s an added bonus!” — Darcie Nation
