A tube of Boy Brow by Glossier to ensure that not a single hair is out of place — in the most natural way possible.


Glossier

Promising review: “I have quite full eyebrows, so I’ve always just used a pomade to fill in the odd gap and give my brows more shape or color. I saw that Boy Brow was ranked as a #1 product so thought I’d try it (ordered in brown) — not really thinking much of it due to not being unhappy with pomades I’ve always used anyway. BOY, was I surprised. My friends have used brow gels before and always told me to steer clear due to gloopiness/feeling gross/not holding brows in place. Boy Brow has done the exact opposite. Not only has it given me *those* supermodel brows, but it holds every single hair in place without feeling like there’s anything even on my brows, AND gives that little bit of color that I’ve always been thankful for when using pomades. It is super easy to use — just a few swipes and I’m good to go! It doesn’t smudge, keeps my brows looking fly, and keeps me feeling fab. Talk about a GAME CHANGER Glossier!” —eloise_l

An Instant Pot that’ll make cooking dinner on a weeknight so much less of hassle. Just dump ingredients in, hit a button, and you’ll get a hearty dinner in less than half hour. So yes, it lives up to the hype!


Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “Best thing I’ve ever purchased in my ENTIRE LIFE!!! I love this appliance. It makes me enjoy cooking dinner at home. I’ve made yogurt, cheesecake, farfalle and meatballs (in one pot!), coq a vin (in one pot!), the best broccoli beef (in one pot!), macaroni and cheese (in one pot!), flan… For example, tonight I made farfalle and meatballs in about six minutes.” —mrsjpvan2

Promising review: “Great product. I mix Bragg Raw Apple Cider Vinegar with my Aztec Secret Indian Bentonite Healing Clay for my facial masks (instead of mixing water with the clay). After the facial, my pores are totally clean, and they seem to disappear. My skin also tightens and takes on a youthful glow. The results last for about a week or a little longer.” —Gloria

Charcoal-filled shoe deodorizers you’ll shower with praise after they clear the stink out of a pair of rain-soaked flats that were destined for the trash.


Yi Yang / BuzzFeed

I own and swear by these little charcoal bags — read my full review!

Here’s an excerpt: “I then tried them on another three-year-old pair of flats that had not been smelling the best since, well, three years ago. After one day, it no longer smelled like anything. And keep in mind that I’m using the same pair of bags back to back!

The product description says the bags are reusable for up to two years; you simply air them out in the sun to rejuvenate ’em once in a while. I’ve been using the same pair now for six months, and they’re still highly effective.”

A carpet cleaner potent enough to destroy all evidence of a ketchup crime scene. It’ll also work on upholstery like car seat covers. These before-and-after pics don’t lie!!!


amazon.com

Promising review: “It’s a miracle in a bottle. My German Shepherd mix decided to pull a black fountain pen out of my purse and chew it to pieces on my beige carpet while I was sleeping — this cleaner lifted the stain and now it’s like the devastation my dog caused never happened! As soon as I saw it lifting the ink, I got back on Amazon and bought more bottles. I will never let myself run out of this. I use it in my Bissel carpet cleaner for some crazy good cleaning power. I’ve become that weird lady that goes around singing the praises of a cleaning product. No regrets.” —L. Logan

6.

A drain snake so you can unclog the bathtub or sink — no need to call the plumber.


amazon.com

Promising review: “When my wife and I moved into this new place, we noticed that there was a bit of water that just kept pooling near the drain in the shower. We tried at least two full bottles of Drano with success, but it was short-lived. A bottle of Drano costs about $6-8 for two attempts. One package of these and only ONE of the items used in this package made more short-term progress than all that Drano did. Less than $6 to save over $20 in drain cleaning products or even the prospect of hundreds from calling out a plumber? Hell yeah, I’d buy this again! Your hands will get messy but you will thank yourself for getting these. Your partner will thank you. If you have slow drains in your shower, there are only three words I can say for you to help fix that problem. Buy. This. Product.” —Adam W.

An electric egg cooker for getting perfectly done eggs 👏every 👏 time with zero guesswork. Yes, it’s a single-purpose appliance, but it more than deserves a spot on your countertop because you’ll never have to see a green ring around your yolks again.


Amazon

You don’t even have to wait around for them to be done — just hit cook, get ready for work, and ding! Breakfast is ready. It can make hard-boiled eggs, soft-boiled eggs, poached eggs, scrambled eggs, and individual omelets.

Promising review: “I bought this egg cooker for the first time a year and a half ago, and it is awesome. I hate having a single-purpose appliance in my kitchen, but this is worth it. Making hard-boiled eggs was always hit or miss for me, even if it was timed perfectly. (I admit I forgot about the eggs more than once!) This cooker makes PERFECT eggs every single time, to the exact hardness I desire with no green ring on the yolk. Even better, the shell slides off without taking half the egg white with it! My favorite use is to pop some eggs in when I get home and prep a salad. By the time the salad is ready, the eggs are done. I can even leave the kitchen and still hear when they are done because of the buzzer. I’ve purchased five more of them for family for Christmas this year and can’t wait to get everyone on board the Dash Go Egg Cooker train!” —A. M. Hinshaw

Poo-Pourri toilet spray so there’s absolutely no trace of offensive odors left in the bathroom after a number two. Just spritz into the bowl before you go and *poof* no more stinky smells!


instagram.com

Promising review: “One bathroom in an apartment just isn’t enough for two adults with a healthy colon. Enter Poo-Pourri. It is very fresh and not overpowering. It is not synthetic smelling. With most room sprays, you end up just smelling flowery poo. This masks the smell completely. I can walk in the bathroom 30 seconds after my boyfriend and only smell lemon.” —Allison H

A jewelry cleaning stick to instantly make dull gems sparkly again. There’s zero mess and you can use it on the go.


amazon.com

This jewelry cleaning stick works like a brush pen: just twist the pen (a cleansing solution will be delivered to the flow-thru brush), brush the solution onto your jewelry, and voila — it’ll sparkle like new!

Promising review: “I was so excited to see the huge difference in how clean my jewelry looked. The cleaning process took less than five minutes and now it sparkles like new!” —Jackie_X

Pimple stickers that’ll help eliminate giant zits overnight. Stick them on before bed and they’ll suck up all the gunk while you sleep.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Unlike other pimple stickers, these are actually made with tea tree and calendula oil to soothe the skin and prevent picking.

Promising review: “I’ve tried so many brands of pimple spots, and these are hands-down the best on the market. I’m a performer at Walt Disney World, and a clear complexion is required. Last night, I put these on a few acne problems (a small cyst, a whitehead, and a pimple I shouldn’t have picked and has been a bump for about three weeks now). I just woke up and am writing this review in disbelief. THEY’RE FLAT! Gone! All of them! I could cry I’m so happy. The packaging is also ideal because it allows you to conveniently and easily peel the stickers off without stretching them out or folding them back on themselves. Do yourself and your complexion a huge favor! Have these on hand for a stubborn zit when you really need help. Make sure you apply them to completely clean and dry skin.” —Caitlyn

Tiny braces for straightening out your ingrown toenails like magic. They’re fairly easy to apply (non-invasive) and you’ll see results within a week!


Amazon, amazon.com

The toenail brace is a composite strip applied across your toenail. The strip behaves like a spring, so when it’s bonded to the curved surface of your toenail it applies a gentle force that helps straighten the nail. Most people will see results within a week. The kit comes with ten toenail braces and adhesive to apply them.

Promising review: “This is a product that actually works for ingrown toenails. I had suffered for years with ingrown nails on both big toes. They were so painful that I bought wide shoes to try and be more comfortable, and wore sandals practically all year. I was skeptical about spending this much, but I’d easily spent that much over the years on things that don’t work. I followed directions to a T (not difficult). The first couple of days, I didn’t notice a difference in pain, but by days three and four, it no longer hurt to touch the side of my toes. After wearing a few weeks, my nail shape is now flatter, as it’s supposed to be. Great product!! Worth every penny.” —Amazon Queen

Get the kit from Amazon for $44.99.

12.

A bottle of Glossier Solution – a gentle yet effective acid-based exfoliator (containing a 10% blend of AHA, BHA, and PHA) that’ll slough away dead skin, help clear up acne and blackheads, and reduce visible redness.


Glossier

Multiple BuzzFeeders swear by this product — read their reviews!

Promising review: “This stuff is incredible! I don’t usually leave reviews but this chemical exfoliator does exactly what it claims and has really helped, especially with the texture of my skin. I have noticed a difference within a week of daily use as it is gentle yet effective, and it hasn’t dried out my skin. It has helped fade acne scars and the fragrance of the product is mild but pleasant. EVERYONE AND THEIR GRANDMAS NEED THIS!!!” —R

Clip-in extensions so natural-looking, people will think you grew out your hair overnight.


amazon.com

Promising review: “Okay, so I am very picky about hair extensions. I’ve spent hundreds of dollars on numerous sets and have never been completely satisfied. UNTIL NOW! These are BY FAR my favorite. For such an amazing price! If you’re worried that this deal is too good to be true (because I was) then stop worrying! And buy these extensions. I have very short hair, and they still look great! Very full and luscious. And you can straighten them. I’m very happy.” —Makenzie Long

A bidet to convert even the biggest TP fan. Your butt will feel so squeaky clean.


Amazon

Read our full review of this bidet!

Promising reviews: “Speaking as a hirsute gentleman, the Luxe Bidet Neo 120 has soured me on pooping in bidet-less toilets forever. It’s shown me the difference between rubbing peanut butter out of shag carpeting and that sparkling clean feeling you get right when you step out of the shower. The unit took me all of about 10 minutes to install on my existing toilet with only a wrench. The easy-to-control flow valve allows for a full range of cleaning, from ‘gentle trickling stream’ to ‘full-on Silkwood decontamination’, ensuring the end of your bowel movement leaves you feeling cleaner and more refreshed than using just toilet paper alone. Even flushable wet wipes pale in comparison.” —Mercury

Get it from Amazon for $34.95 (available in two colors).

15.

A TubShroom that’ll catch all your hairs while still allowing water to drain so you’re not standing in a pool of soapy water. No wonder more than 10,000 people swear by it on Amazon!


Amazon

I recently bought one of these and I can’t believe I’ve waited all these years! I used to have a traditional strainer that would block the water flow as soon as a few hairs got caught in it (and I would have to fish out a clump of hair every five minutes or so). No more! This gadget catches all the hairs (so you don’t end up with a clogged drain) and still allows the water to go down. I literally cannot stop talking about it.

Promising review: “I was skeptical about this little rubber strainer, but I needed something to save my drains from the piles of hair that fall out of my head. This thing is amazing! It fit into my standard drain perfectly, and I don’t think a single hair slipped by it. It was pretty gross to see how much hair I lost in just one shower, but it was comforting to know it wasn’t clogging my drain. Clean up is super easy, too. I just took a tissue and wiped it from top to bottom, grabbing all the hair as the soft rubber strainer released it all easily. Not a hair was caught in it. Best strainer I’ve ever had.” —Lawyer For Justice

A microwave pasta cooker you may be skeptical of at first, but will be glad you bought on nights when you’re too tired to cook.


Amazon, youtube.com

Promising review: “I don’t want to get all gushy over a pasta maker, but man… I really love this gizmo! I try to limit my monthly food expenditures, and the Fasta Pasta helps me work in at least one inexpensive pasta meal every week, if not more. First of all, I like spaghetti, but I’m lazy and impatient and don’t like things that take a long time to make, with a bunch of steps, and a big clean up afterward. The Fasta Pasta is perfect for me. I get the exact amount of correctly measured spaghetti; it’s faster than boiling water in a big pot then having to watch and stir the pasta; the pasta comes out perfectly cooked every time and the cleanup is a snap. No big pot, no colander, no spaghetti fork to lift out the pasta. Just the easy-to-clean Fasta Pasta, and a pot to heat up the sauce. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!” —Smilin Sam

A reusable makeup-erasing cloth to wipe your face clean with only a little water — no other products required. Just toss it in the washer when it gets dirty and it’ll be as good as new!


BuzzFeed

Promising review: “Amazing! This baby removed all my makeup including waterproof mascara. The cloth is super soft and I didn’t need to wipe hard to remove everything. Wiped twice just to make sure all the makeup was gone. Best thing is all you need is water! Washed it by hand after use, and it was as good as new.” —Lucy

A hanging tool that might appear to be a novelty item upon first glance, but can actually help you get the picture perfectly straight on the first try. Moral of the story: it works!


Amazon

This all-in-one tool is essentially a tape measure with sliding pins and a built-in leveler, which is perfect for anyone who can’t keep track of a bunch of different tools (me).

Promising review: “For some reason I’ve always had trouble hanging pictures on the wall. ESPECIALLY pictures with two hangers. A typical picture hanging session used to look like this… Measure, measure again, mark the wall, measure again, measure yet again, drill holes in wall, hang picture, step back and look at my CROOKED picture. Repeat. I have no clue why or how my pictures ended up crooked after measuring and leveling so many times. It was quite frustrating and left my wall with lots of extra holes. Well, this tool changed ALL that! It makes it so easy to hang pictures…STRAIGHT…the FIRST time! A chore that used to take 30 minutes now only takes five. Would be a perfect gift for new homeowners.” —MommyRN

A John Frieda hot air brush for getting a salon-quality blowout at home with minimal time and effort. It’s a whole lot easier to use than a brush and blow dryer and the results are absolutely stunning.


amazon.com, Amazon

Read our full review of the John Frieda hot air brush!

Promising review: “This is a total game changer for people like me with wavy hair that always gives me a disheveled appearance or the appearance that I just don’t care. I do care, I just do not have the coordination or patience to figure out how to ‘do’ my hair. I’ve tried products, brushes, and different styles. This came in the mail today. I showered and washed my hair. I dried my hair for maybe 90 seconds with my hair dryer to get it about 80% dry. (I have medium/shoulder length hair.) I turned this on, and it was magical. My hair dried and finished in a matter of a few minutes. I was so taken aback by the change this made, I called everyone I knew. My 15-year-old niece said it looked like I had just left the salon! Simple old me giving myself a salon quality hairdo. The results held all day. Where has this been all my life? I love this and will be buying one for my sister and niece. Awesome!” —Michelle Fetter

All-natural bottle cleaning tablets so you can restore your stainless steel thermos (you know, the one you drink coffee and tea from) to a brand new state. The best part? No scrubbing required!


amazon.com

These are biodegradable and odor-free.

Promising review: “I seriously can’t believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug — I tried everything. A bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY, without even scrubbing. They look brand new. What a magical product. No weird smell or taste afterward, either. I liked it so much I used it on another HydroFlask I use primarily to hold my Bloody Mary mix in the fridge. I couldn’t put anything else in it because it would always taste like spicy tomato juice. Bottle Bright to the rescue! No residual smell or taste anymore. AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING.” —Amazon Customer

A fast-acting stain remover to make red wine vanish before your very eyes. Is it witchcraft? Maybe.


youtube.com

Promising review: “Had some red wine splash on me during a wedding. Not like a huge puddle, but left a few streaks on the pant leg of a 100% wool suit. I sprayed some of this on a paper towel and applied it (conservatively) to the stains, then used a clean, wet paper towel to remove the residue. Worked like magic.” —Will B.

A scratch remover that’ll erase surface blemishes on your car as well as any doubts about whether it’ll work.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I had a few noticeable fine scratches on the hood of my truck that I tried this Trinova Scratch and Swirl Remover on, and it worked. I no longer have to be annoyed every time I approach my vehicle from the front! It didn’t take a lot of effort to get it back to looking like new again. I will use it again in the future if necessary. I’m glad that I didn’t pay someone at the body shop to try to buff the scratches out, I saved a bunch of money with this!” —Bonnie Walton

One reviewer said it even removed permanent marker! Read our full review of Bar Keeper’s Friend cleanser!

Promising review: “Bar Keeper’s Friend should really be called ‘Homeowner’s Magician’! I purchased this cleanser in an attempt to revive our stainless steel knife set, which is a great moderately-priced set that has seen better days, and I’m extremely happy that I did. The cleanser not only took away the rust spots with minimal difficulty, but it returned them to their original luster! After cleaning our knives, I gave it a shot on our porcelain sink, which I typically have to douse in bleach cleaner to remove the stains from, causing the entire kitchen to be filled with noxious fumes… and it worked beautifully! The stains came clean, and it made the sink look pretty enough to eat off of.” —Kat Ferrari

A bitter but harmless clear polish so you can finally break your nail-biting habit for good.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I have been biting my fingernails as long as I could chew. I grew immune to the taste of the no-bite nail polish you can buy at drugstores. I tried keeping a rubber band on my wrist and popping it every time I noticed myself chewing. This nail polish has been the only thing that has worked. I keep a bottle on my desk at work and another one at home just in case I slip up. I had the first manicure of my life a few weeks ago. Amazing product.” —Amazon Customer

A clump-free and cruelty-free mascara that’ll make you say, “I can’t believe those are my real lashes!”


amazon.com

Promising review: “I never write reviews for things, but this mascara was just so great I felt like I had to! I love lashes, and my friends are used to me wearing thick coats of mascara at all times. Despite this, I got complimented on my lashes basically every time I wore this mascara this week. Multiple people even asked if I had extensions! This mascara isn’t clumpy at all, and makes your lashes super long and defined without sticking them together. I’ve never had any problems with flaking, and although it isn’t waterproof, I’ve definitely used eyedrops, shed a tear, and gotten stuck in rain without them smudging or running down my face. All in all this is my new holy grail mascara, and I’m thrilled!!” —Sophie Johnson

A daily planner hundreds of people swear by for boosting their productivity. It just might convince you to write things down and get organized as well.


BuzzFeed

There are yearly, monthly, and weekly sections, with plenty of space to write in daily to-dos. It’s undated so you’re not limited to a certain time frame. This is actually our cheap pick for the best planner on BuzzFeed Reviews!

Promising review: “I was looking for a simple planner to help keep my life in order midway through the calendar year, which makes it difficult to find a decent one without wasting half the calendar. This planner allows you to personally add the calendar so you can start from any point in the year. That was what drew me to this planner to begin with, but it really wound up working for me by keeping me on track without any unnecessary frills. With prompts to set long-term goals for the year and short-term goals for the week, I find myself feeling organized and accomplished. A favorite feature of mine is the section each week of what my successes were and what I could do better for the next week. The Simple Elephant does a brilliant job of keeping me focused and mindful — it is a staple in my bag wherever I go.” —Gina

A gel-effect top coat so you can give your at-home manicure a professional finish and help it last for twice as long as usual.


Abby Kass / BuzzFeed

Read our full review of this gel-effect top coat!

Promising review: “I had weekly manicures for YEARS…it’s overwhelming to think about how much money I have spent…until one day I started doing my nails myself. This polish goes on nicely and stays put for a good week. I like the brush, hard to explain, but the brush makes it easier to apply. And I don’t have to soak nails in acetone to get it off, this comes off with regular nail polish remover. Overall, I save a lot of money doing my own nails and they still look great since the polish is so high quality. Honestly, I don’t think I can tell the difference anymore — this gives a professional manicure!” —skatz

A purple shampoo to take out the warm/brassy tones from platinum blonde hair. Anything to delay the next trip to the salon because your stylist is awesome but…expensive.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I have bleached blonde hair that loves to go brassy. I can’t stand brassy/yellow blonde (on me). If you are looking for icy blonde to platinum, this is the shampoo for you. It completely removes all yellow from my hair. My friends are always asking me how I get this silvery blonde. Well, this is the secret. The trick is to wet your hair, put the shampoo on with as little agitation as possible (put it on like a conditioner, don’t let it lather), leave it for about five minutes (or however long it takes to wash your body and a quick shave), and then rinse. I use it about two times a week and it keeps my blonde PERFECT. I’ve tried every purple shampoo on the market (almost) and this is THE BEST. All of my blonde friends use it now.” —T. Lubben

OTC medication, prescription medication, pain injections, chiropractor etc… This topical oil has given me relief for nearly six weeks now. I have only had two to three headaches in that time, and they were mild. I ordered more already so I have some in my car and at home, and I bought some for two of my friends who suffer from chronic migraines. I would recommend this product to anyone with migraines.
