A wood polish and conditioner to help restore your wooden furniture back to factory condition. Did you just get your entire house re-done by an HGTV crew, or are you just super good at picking out cleaning products?
Gives your wooden furniture a protective, soft luster coating thanks to Carnauba wax and beeswax. It also prevents it from drying and fading. Good for use on antiques, dining tables, kitchen cabinets, wood doors, trim, and more.
Promising review: “This stuff is absolutely AMAZING. My wife and I were getting tired of looking at our worn out cabinets and wood paneling and were very close to paying a professional thousands of dollars to refinish it all, but then we came across this product. Our paneling and cabinets were looking rough. We have two dogs that jumped up and scratched places, we also had an area that was damaged by water spots where our dog bowls were, and several other areas that were just worn from heavy traffic. This stuff was like a magic eraser for water spots, scratches, scuffs, and any other blemish. We simply wiped the product on with a paper towel and let it sit for 20 minutes before wiping it off with a clean towel. Everything looks brand new. I’m buying a couple more so we can finish our cabinets and wood paneling. We’re so glad we found this product.” — Kris
A jewelry cleaning pen so you don’t have to spend time and energy changing out of your pajamas just to go pay someone else to shine your beloved treasures.
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
A hair finishing stick for putting fussy, fly away hairs in their rightful place — neatly styled with the rest of your hair, of course!
It’s made of all natural ingredients and is suitable for all hair colors!
Promising review: “I have super fine hair with lots of breakage. No matter how I put my hair up I have bad flyaways. This stuff is great! So easy and it stays better and looks smoother than stiff hair spray.” — Jill Stilfield
Acne patches you can apply to areas where you’re breaking out. Let it sit overnight or throughout the day, peel it off, and watch it take all the pore-clogging gunk with it.
These patches contain hydrocolloid dressing with a hint of tea tree oil, calendula oil, and cica. The ingredients in this are gentle, ideal for all skin types and tones!
Promising review: “I can’t believe how much money I’ve spent on acne products over the years before I found this. Of all the products with glowing reviews, these patches have been the most effective and worth their cost. I have sensitive combo skin and deal with adult acne on a daily basis. Since my face has dry areas, I’m also more likely to pick at it (TMI, sorry). It’s terribly embarrassing to go to work with these kinds of issues day after day, so in addition to taking a prescription, I’ve been on the hunt for anything topical that would help. The first time I used one of these patches, I put it on at night. The next morning, I woke up and was kind of shocked. It actually did what it was supposed to do. You peel off the patch, and with it comes at least 90% of the nastiness that was clogging your skin. It DRASTICALLY reduces the size of the zit. I’ve also experimented with using these on cystic acne, and they work wonders for speeding up the clearing and healing process. Also, they’re comfortable to wear and stay on your face pretty well overnight!” — Greta H

An oral liquid tartar, which is basically like mouthwash for your doggo. You simply add to your pup’s water so it can help reduce plaque and bacteria and make their breath smell less yucky.
Promising review: “My dog’s molars were turning black and he had a ton of build up on his canines. In the photo (above), just imagine everywhere you see slight yellow, instead covered in black and brown gunk and hard plaque. His gums were beginning to look inflamed. And, of course, his breath could kill a horse. After one week of constant use (a cap full for every bowl of water) you could see an obvious difference in tooth color. I was blown away. (Why can’t human mouthwash do such a good job on our teeth?) After three weeks, his molars were almost completely clean. After a couple months of use, the plaque on his canines was soft enough to brush some of it off, which was totally impossible before. Plaque covered the canine approximately 70%. Obviously that’s no longer the case. Idk what insane solvent this is made of, but it keeps his gross mouth clean as a whistle. Now I don’t have to worry about my picky princess mutt losing his teeth because he can’t be bothered to chew anything.” — BaconPancakes
Price: $8.99+ (available in two sizes)
A coffeemaker cleaning tablet to make descaling your caffeine machine a whole lot easier than figuring out how much vinegar to pour in.
All you have to do is drop a tablet into your coffeemaker and brew (without the coffee, obvi). You may want to run two brews to ensure the taste from the tablet isn’t left behind when you make your next hot beverage.
Promising review: “I liked the fact that this was so easy to use. Used to use vinegar to clean my Keurig machine, but this is so much more simple. My only suggestion is that you run one more cycle than is suggested on the package. When I used my Keurig to make tea, I noticed that it tasted strange. I tried one more time, and it was perfect. Other than that, this is very easy to use.” — Linda Kaplan
Price: a pack of four for $7.42
A mold and mildew removal gel for making your bathroom surfaces look brand new. Mold and mildew are bound to happen, but there’s no need to fret or call a professional to treat it!
Promising review: “Wow! I would give this 10 stars if I could. We’ve had issues for a few years with the caulking behind the handle of our kitchen faucet turning black from mildew. We’ve scrubbed with what seems like a million different products, with no luck. We were actually just talking about ripping out the caulking and doing a total replacement. But, my husband saw this online the other day and decided to order it. Almost immediately when he applied it, you could see it was starting to work. We left it on overnight and the black is COMPLETELY GONE! It’s incredible. 1000% worth the (small) investment. Seriously — just buy this. It’s amazing!!” — Nicole D.
Schick Silk touch-up tools you can use for painless, precise eyebrow shaping, cleaning up peach fuzz hairs on your face, and even use to clear away dead skin. These little guys go a long way.
Promising review: “I regularly used the Tinkle facial razors which I thought worked well, but I just used one of these razors for the first time yesterday and OMG the amount of peach fuzz and to my surprise dead skin that came off was shocking and oh-so-satisfying. I will definitely be stocking up.” — I & S. Stark

Mike’s Hot Honey – it may just become your new go-to condiment. It’s delicious on spicy foods, savory foods, sweet foods, heck, you may even be tempted to just hold the bottle over your mouth and just eat it directly from the bottle. You do you.
our write-up of the delicious Mike’s Hot Honey!
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 — 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!” — Jeff R. Clow
A pet hair roller because everything about our little fluffy friends is absolutely perfect except for the fact that their fur and hair gets on everything we own. But we still love them, right?
Promising review: “Where has this been all my crazy cat-loving life? Sticky rollers work fine for clothes but this is the only product that has ever COMPLETELY removed all the cat hair from my bed. I have a long-haired 20-lb. tabby and if you run your hands up his back a few times and fling the hair everywhere, it looks like it’s snowing – he never stops shedding no matter what I do. After using the ChomChom, I can put on a black dress and roll around on my bed and not get a single hair on me. It’s absolutely amazing. Everyone is getting one for Christmas, even if they don’t have a pet. I don’t care; it’s THAT good.” — Stephanie
Promising review: “So my grandmother told me about this product when I was young, about 20 years ago or so. I use it all the time! THIS STUFF WORKS! It works really well too. My nails grow really long in a few weeks and I get to decide when to cut them off. Women ask me about them all the time, ‘How do you get such white nail tips?’ Well, it’s because of this.” — Halie Brake
A primer that boasts being especially great for those with large pores. It provides even coverage and contains ingredients like green tea extract to help energize and protect skin, as well as soluble collagen to help even moisture levels and elasticity.
Promising review: “I have been searching for years for a good makeup primer that will help combat my oily skin and large pores. I read a bunch of reviews for this primer and decided to give it a try. BEST decision ever. This primer goes on so smoothly and fills in my pores perfectly. I let it sit for two to five minutes before putting on my makeup, which I think helps (could just be me). I would highly recommend this primer for anyone with oily skin — it’s a lifesaver and a steal for the price!! I ordered another bottle because I am that sold.” — Sarah Rose
A scalp shampoo brush that’ll not only aid in giving you a deeper clean when shampooing your hair, but’ll relax your scalp, which ends up helping to reduce stress.
Promising review: “I have been using this for about three weeks now and I LOVE it. It feels amazing! I haven’t changed my shampoo or anything, but my hair definitely has more volume…like my roots are standing up or something! I don’t know exactly what is happening, but I am all for it.” — Lsn1986
Price: $6.98+ (available in three colors)
Water bottle cleaning tablets to get your beloved drinking vessel back to the condition it was in when you first fell in love with it at the store. I, for one, don’t feel like taking a brush and soap and scrubbing away, and I’m going to make a fair assumption that you don’t want to either.
Tablets are biodegradable, chlorine-free, all-natural, and environmentally safe. They’re individually packaged, and don’t require any additional brushing or scrubbing. Good for use on stainless steel bottles, mugs, hydration reservoirs, coolers, dishes, and hard-to-clean plastic containers and bottles.
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
Price: a pack of 12 for $8
A 52-week journal designed to help provide a fresh perspective on being thankful for the things you have in your life, because it can be easy to just get caught up in all the negative things, rather than focusing on the positive, too!
Promising review: “This is just what I was looking for. Cute design, motivational and inspirational quotes without being religion or bible-focused, short and sweet places to write. I could have used a regular notebook or journal but I did not want one like that. I want to jot stuff down without writing a lot. For people complaining about the repetitiveness: get some creativity flowing! Use stickers and washi tape to customize the pages to your liking! There’s a lot of potential here and the price can’t be beat.” — xxJunebugJo
A garbage disposal foaming cleaner that’ll tackle built-up grime and those nasty smells you gag at every time you, family members, or house guests go near your kitchen sink. It’s truly so…disgusting.
The biodegradable packet cleans/scrubs away at grime and odor that cause build-up and yucky smells on sidewalls, blades, under the splashguard, and other hidden areas. They come in pre-measured drop-in packets and are recommended to use about once a week!
Promising review: “It seems counterintuitive to put a little packet down your garbage disposal to clean it, but this does actually seem to work, at least for getting out weird smells that baking soda and vinegar don’t really touch. I scrub the sink down first, especially around the garbage disposal area, rinse it down, and then just follow the directions on the package. I have used it with single, large-size sinks and with double sinks — only difference is that the double sink will have blue cleaning foam rise up the drain, which you rinse away when the disposal sounds clear again. I have tried the foaming cleaner in a can, but unfortunately it stopped coming out of the can about 10% of the way through. Went back to this tried-and-true.” — KS
It’s recommended to change the spikes every 30 days during the spring and summer months!
Promising review: “I have several houseplants that had stopped flowering, so I put a few of these spikes in the pot (there are directions on the back of package for quantity), and approximately a month after using these spikes, my peace lily had three flowers on it, and my African violets plants all got several blooms on them! This worked wonders for my plants that don’t flower also! I noticed that my ivy and cactus plants started growing faster, and they became more green and healthy looking. I am very happy with this product, and I will buy it again.” — Elizabeth

Charcoal shoe deodorizers that’ll have your stinky footwear smelling fresh in a pinch.
These can be reused for up to two years! Read our
write-up of these miracle shoe deodorizers.
Promising review: “My boyfriend has those toe shoes that you don’t wear socks with, and after a couple years of use and several attempts to sanitize them with spray or wash them, we banished them into bags in the corner of a storage unit. They’re expensive shoes, so we were very hesitant to throw them out. I saw these online and thought maybe we could rescue the shoes. Let me tell you about these shoes. If you touch them, your hand is instantly tainted with a smell that could get you exiled from society. We held our breath, opened the bags containing the shoes, stuck these in there, and ran out of the room. A couple of days later we got them out, and they didn’t smell! We spent $10 and resurrected $100+ shoes.” — Cindy
Price: a pack of two for $9.95
An antiseptic spray to help treat infections your fluffy friend might get such as yeast infections, hot spots, ringworm, pyoderma, and more.
Promising review: “Do you your dogs smells like bread dough? Or Fritos? Do their ears smells REALLY bad? Do they lick their paws often? Do they bite their legs, back, hips, or hind end? Do they lick their bellies often? Have you noticed small scab-like spots in their undercarriage? Brown spots on their skin? Red skin? Or the ultimate, a darkening of the skin that rubs off? If so, then your dogs probably have a yeast problem, which you might not ever have heard of, but this spray will provide instant relief! Most doctors first diagnose yeast problems simply by smell, so save yourself the vet bill and try this first! You can’t get rid of it and just by giving them a bath — you need a medicated shampoo or spray like this in order to effectively manage the yeast and you have to use it for at least three months. I know it seems like a long time, but trust me, I learned the hard way. Yes veterinarians can also diagnosed by scraping skin cells and looking at them under a microscope, but generally will diagnose a yeast infection in dogs simply by smelling them. Most pet owners never even know that dogs can get yeast infections. I didn’t know and I’ve had dogs for at least 15 years. This spray is the same strength you would get from a veterinarian’s office, but without the cost of that bill. I highly, highly, highly recommend this spray for treating yeast and fungal infections in dogs. I’ll try and update with more symptoms and photos as I can and as I think of them — I didn’t take a lot of photos when I started treating the dogs and when they started having problems, but I’m always happy to help other pet owners navigate this horrible, horrible affliction. If you have any questions, feel free to ask — I’d rather help others so they can get their pets treated right the first time and for a fraction of the cost of going to the vet.” — Amazoncustomer
A collagen hair protein treatment that works to help reverse damaged hair from things like heat, sun, and coloring, just to name a few. Because we want you to be able to do all the cool, experimental things with your hair that your heart desires without worrying about the risks!
Bek O’ Connell / BuzzFeed
a BuzzFeeder’s review of this amazing hair treatment (#1)!
Promising review: “My hair used to be really shiny. Then I had purple hair for a year, followed by blue for six months. My stylist had to bleach the beejeebers out of my hair to remove all of the funky colors. Ever since, my hair has been dry, crispy, and definitely not shiny. This stuff really makes a difference! I used it maybe 10-14 days ago, and I just redid it tonight. After shampooing, I towel-dried my hair and then put a big blob throughout my long-ish hair and clipped it up. I left it on for quite a while, just puttering around and getting chores done. Then I rinsed it and my hair feels soft and looks much shinier. I will keep using this as long as I need to (it will take a few years to grow out all the damage while maintaining length). I’m really glad that I read that article and bought the product” — SHANNON FRASER
An airspun translucent face powder with a lightweight feel that provides long-lasting coverage, and works equally well as a foundation AND a makeup setting powder. Not to mention, it’s under $10 and has 3.7K five-star reviews. Pretty freaking awesome.
Promising review: “I am totally blown away by this product! I’ve been using Laura Mercier’s Translucent loose setting powder (which is $39) for about six months, and was dissatisfied with the fact that my skin appeared greasy/oily by the end of the work day. By 5 p.m., I have been wearing my makeup for about 10 hours. I also live in a warm climate and have oily skin. By the end of my work day using this powder, my face is still very matte! I am THRILLED! This way outperforms the Laura Mercier powder and is about 13% of the cost. I can’t believe it. I’m never going back.” — AlexisJulian
Price: $5.97 (available in six shades)
A blackhead remover vacuum that’ll help make saying goodbye to blackheads, whiteheads, dead skin, and dirt residue on your skin so easy, you’re gonna be genuinely wondering how you lived your life so long without this baby.

Level one is recommended for sensitive and dry skin, levels two and three are recommended for neutral skin, and levels four and five are recommended for combination and oily skin. Plus, it has four suction heads: one for cleaning up blackheads, one for removing dirt grease, one for reducing the appearance of dead skin and fine lines, and one for massaging and tightening the skin. It’s made with a built-in rechargeable battery that can last over 150 minutes on one charge.
Promising review: “I honestly will never run out of great things to say about this! This blackhead remover works WONDERS. I use it about once or twice a week, and absolutely love it. It works very well, and I have seen a size reduction in my pores since using it these past few weeks. I highly recommend this blackhead remover and would go as far to say this might be a great stocking stuffer!” — Andrea
Price: $25.99 (available in two colors)
A nail and cuticle care solution for making your nails look fresh and healthy — just apply a coat and let it wow you!
Promising review: “Omg this is the real deal. I applied it to my nails and cuticles. It worked and now my awful cuticles are gone. Before they looked dry and no matter what I did, lotion several times a day, it didn’t work. But with one application of this oil and my nails look so fresh, clean, and not flaky at all!! Love!!” — W. Mills
An oven cleaning spray so next time you go to open the oven door and pop in dinner, you’re not tempted to puke all over it because of the yucky build-up you’ve let it accumulate.
Good for use on ovens, broilers, and barbecue grills. Only takes about five minutes to spot clean.
Promising review: “My oven was in bad shape. I had tried doing the whole baking soda and peroxide trick, but it made things worse. I tried this after seeing it on a BuzzFeed article and it actually worked! Let it sit for about four hours and the nastiness wipes off effortlessly.” — Natalie C
Lifting pads you just press down into rug stains — ya know, things from pets, spilled drinks, blood, dirt, and more — keep it there for up to 24 hours, and say adios stains.
Promising review: “These things are AMAZING. They are magical. If you have a pet that has accidents in the house, these are a MUST HAVE. After your pet has an accident, all you need to do is open up the packet, place the pad on the accident spot, and then step on the pad to release the magic formula. Leave it there for at least a half an hour or up to 24 hours. Why the discrepancy, you might be asking? Because these pads work on DRIED STAINS. Holla!!!! My puppy has been driving me bonkers with accidents in the house, but I don’t sweat it anymore thanks to these pads. They are seriously miracle workers and I will always have a supply of them in my house going forward.” — Lisa Koivu

A monthly bill planner to help make the task of managing your expenses more organized and manageable. So yes, you can buy a $10 large soy latte with extra foam from the fancy coffee shop down the block, because you were responsible enough to PLAN IT OUT!
This book includes an account tracker, a monthly savings tracker, a debt payment log, a check ledger, a monthly budget worksheet, and a weekly and daily expense tracker! Plus, it’s lightweight, printed on quality paper, and features a matte craft design cover!
Promising review: “I really like this planner. I’ve been saying I’m going to get my life together and get out of debt. So in order to do that, I need to keep track of my budget. I started looking for planners. How can I say I want to budget my money and then turn around and spend $30—$50 on a planner?! Then, I need to get the stickers and the gel pens and… you get my drift. So when I saw this was less than $10, I wasn’t sure if it was gonna work for me!!! Boy, was I surprised! It’s super big, and has enough space for me to write. It has my budget for the month, then a page for weekly activity. I can’t say enough good things about it. It’s thick, not thin like a $1 store book — it’s sturdy. Order this and save yourself some money. I can’t wait to order more.” — Nia
Light-dimming stickers, because while you obviously adore your technology, you don’t necessarily love the LED lights that radiate from it and keep you awake at night.
These dim 50–80% of light! They’re super easy to use. All you have to do is just peel and stick, and they don’t leave any sticky residue, so you can remove any time you need with ease. Plus, they can always be cut or adjusted to your preferences/needs. They also make black-out dimming sheets and you can get them right
Promising review: “This is the best thing you never knew you needed. I own a digital clock with the numbers displayed in red LED light, and every night I’ve blocked the light with a cover so it doesn’t shine in my eyes as I sleep. Silly I know, but I like my room pitch black and cave-like. On a whim I bought this product. OH MY GOD! Game changer!! For the first night EVER I didn’t have to cover the clock display before I went to bed!! I had no idea how big a difference this little dimmer could make, but I’m more than pleased with the result. I can still see the time display just fine, but now my room is a happy cave! Some commenters argue you could get the same effect using electrical tape but this product is easy to remove and doesn’t leave a sticky residue at all, which can’t be said for most tapes. I did notice a slight lag in response when I covered my TV LED sensor, so if you’re trying to block something that actually senses inputs I would maybe not suggest this. Other than that, excellent product!” — Amazon Customer
Price: a pack of 100 for $4.49.
Silicone face mask brushes to make applying your favorite masks super easy, and a lot less messy (re: not getting your hands all dirty). Plus, reviewers boast about how simple these babies are to clean.
Promising review: “I love these! I was sick of having to scrape face mask gunk out from under my nails so these are a great alternative — plus I can use each for a different product if i’m using two at a time, and not risk cross-contamination. They are a little wide though, so they might not fit in all jars and some you might have to scoop the product out first onto another surface for that reason, or if like me, you use a volcanic clay mask, the product bends the silicone a bit if you try to scoop it from the jar since the clay is thick and the silicone is flimsy. BUT, the good news is they won’t break from bending AND they are really easy to clean and wipe off!! Adore these and am definitely never going back to brushes that have fibers.” — Amazon Customer
Price: a pack of two for $3.98
A waterproof mascara to give you noticeably longer/fuller eyelashes with just one application. Plus, reviewers boast that it truly stays on all day!
Promising review: “This stuff is amazing! I seriously look like I have false lashes on with only one coat. I included pictures without any mascara, and then with only ONE coat of this amazing mascara: the pictures speak for themselves. My only con to this is because it’s so durable, it can take a while to remove, but any waterproof makeup remover does the trick pretty quickly. Seriously, will buy this again the second I run out!” — Elyse J. Brown
A pair of high-waisted leggings that come in a ton of wonderful colors, feature pockets (should you choose to buy a pair with pockets, which you should because snacks exist), and are bound to make you wanna ditch all of your pants in favor of wearing these every single day.
our write-up of these oh, so wonderful leggings!
Promising review: “Ok I never write reviews but these leggings are amazing!! I have two pairs and I’ll probably buy about 2-3 more. They’re so comfy and they make your booty look good! Plus, some leggings attract dog hair and stuff (I have two long haired pups) and it’s impossible to get it off. These don’t!! Plus they’re squat proof, so no worries about that. And they have that hidden pocket in the front to hold your keys or cell phone while working out. Love, love, love these leggings.” — Jennifer
Price: $9.98+ (available in 32 styles, with or without pockets, and sizes XS–3XL)
A cutlery drawer organizer so you can consolidate your forks, knives, and spoons into one fabulous little tool.
Features cutlery icons for easy identification. They recommend to wash and dry this by hand!
Promising review: “Yes, this little utensil tray is really that good! I went from using 12 inches of horizontal space in a lovely but huge wooden utensil tray to using about four inches (whatever the width of this godsend is). It stores my butter knives, steak knives, spoons, forks, and a slew of little teaspoons. I’d guess that the max capacity for each slot is about 10 pieces. For example, I fit four butter knives and four steak knives into the first/knife slot easily, with good wiggle room. This is such a great design. Using this tray opened up about half of my 18-inch wide drawer, which allowed me to decompress the other drawers in my kitchen a bit. I highly recommend this item. It’s worth every penny.” — Kathleen Cooke
A cooktop cleaning kit because look: you’re using the thing to make your meals, so naturally it’s going to get dirty. Sometimes things fall out of the pot, sometimes things splatter from the pan, and sometimes burns happen because you’re too busy dancing to the Jonas Brothers and forgot about your pasta… AGAIN not speaking from personal experience!
Comes with a 10 ounce bottle of cooktop cleaner, a cleaning pad, and a scraper. It helps to clean grease, stains, and remove burnt and baked-on deposits.
Promising review: “As soon as I used this stuff, I couldn’t believe it! We had a new stove that I didn’t clean for months and assumed the burnt pea juice (my enemy) would just be a new stain forever. However, after one application, it was basically gone. I used the scraper that came with it and did one more small application on just that spot, and it was gone! Every time I use this it looks like my stove could be brand new.” — Christi Lambertson
Acure Brightening Facial Scrub that’ll help brighten complexion, get rid of unwanted dirt and oil, and nourish the skin. Plus, it’s vegan!
This stuff is sulfate-, paraben-, cruelty-, nonylphenol ethoxylate-, and propylparaben-free!
Promising review: “Who’d have thought you could get excited about a facial scrub? I love this stuff! The ingredients are natural — nothing synthetic! It doesn’t dry out my skin, and my cheeks are always baby soft after using it. This is my third time ordering this tube of green scrubbing greatness!” — BBQ222
A brown sugar bear you just soak in water for 20 minutes and then place in brown sugar to help it soften. We don’t wanna see you have to chuck your hardened brown sugar just because you haven’t used it in a while.
Promising review: “After multiple containers for my brown sugar and continuously throwing my brown sugar away due to giant hard lumps, I began to wonder why our brown sugar never lumped as a child. That’s when I remembered a weird brown bear in our sugar, After a quick Google search I found this! I soaked it in water for 30 minutes and then added to my lumpy brown sugar…two days later there is not a single lump in my sugar! Yay!” — Sneezeloaf
Divider sticky notes to make the task of writing down important lessons and assignments in class or work simple for even the messiest of note-takers.
These dividers use water-based, not chemical-based adhesive.
Promising review: “These babies are pretty sturdy and they make putting notes in a book, planner, magazine, or whatever, a complete breeze. I really like the ease of these and if you are creative you can make these work for any project. I use them in my textbooks to summarize my notes on a chapter. I also have short-term memory loss after a car accident, and I like reading novels, but can’t remember things, so I use one of these as a bookmark, and take a few minutes to jot down key things from the book. I really, really, really like these and I am glad they exist.” — Delaney
Price: a pack of 60 for $5.22
A makeup brush cleansing shampoo you can use to clean those things you use to apply cosmetics to your precious FACE. Because makeup build-up is yucky, and we don’t want you to have go out and spend your last paycheck on new brushes and sponges!
This brush cleaning shampoo is paraben-, phthalates-, petroleum-, and perfume-free. It’s also hypoallergenic, dermatologist-tested, water-based, and made with gentle, plant-based ingredients, because after all, your makeup brushes are used on your face, so you want to be sure you’re cleaning them with a natural, safe product.
Promising review: “I hate washing my brushes, I’ve always done it by hand and it’s always caused the big fluffy powder brushes to feel rougher or become matted no matter how hard I try to reshape them. I got this solution and used it with a makeup brush spinner (I used the Mevolic one), and I couldn’t BELIEVE how amazing my brushes were afterwards! I also have insanely sensitive skin and most any soap I put on a brush will cause me to breakout when I use it later, no matter how well I typically rinse it. But I really think that this cleaner and the brush spinner worked great and I haven’t had any sensitive bumps on my skin since using them.” — Chelsea

This cleaner uses micro-foam action to safely soften and remove earwax in a non-irritating manner.
Promising review: “My right ear was totally plugged so I went to the pharmacy and the pharmacist said that this is the one doctors usually tell patients to get. I put the drops in, waited, then flushed my ear out with very warm water and OH MY GOSH… the gunk that came flowing out onto the towel blew my mind! It’s amazing that I was ever able to hear at all with all that crap in my ear. This stuff works.” — CD

Promising review: “I have extremely sensitive skin. I look at oil and break out. I am careful about how I cleanse and how I moisturize, as one misstep means weeks of recovery. I threw caution to the wind with these, and I am obsessed. I have so many of these now. I do them about five times a week. They feel great, moisturize, and smell amazing. They are delicate and lovely.” — Megan D.
I love these so much that I wrote about ’em. Read more about these amazing

bunch of great ones on Amazon!
Promising review: “I bought this on a whim because my walk-in shower is just a pain to clean. I’m 51 and I guess I’ve just been old school with how I clean, so I was hand scrubbing it for years. The FIRST time I used this to clean my shower, it took five minutes AND it scrubbed my shower cleaner than it has been in years. In the corners, the floor, the glass door, everything came out squeaky clean. I’m NEVER cleaning my shower by hand again.” — Terry

A migraine stick to help stop painful migraines in their tracks. As a migraine sufferer myself, I know how difficult it is to accomplish anything when a migraine hits, and there just aren’t enough hours in the day to waste them on nursing yourself back to a fully-functioning human when you get one.
our write-up of this miracle migraine stick!
Promising review: “I have had tension and migraine headaches for around 20 years. I have tried everything. 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. It is phenomenal.” — Mary D.

Promising review: “I’ve tried other sleep products like the sleep drinks and other gummies but I keep coming back for these! They’ve worked the best out of any of the others I’ve tried! I fall asleep fast and stay asleep for the whole night. I also wake up feeling great! No hangover feeling at all!” — Jaime Arnold

A jetted bathtub cleaner — just fill up your luxurious bath, add a quarter of the bottle, watch it work its magic by removing gross residue, and drain the tub to find it sparkly and clean.
Each bottle cleans about four times, and it’s septic-safe! Only takes about 15 minutes to clean!
Promising review: “Love this stuff. I was skeptical at first. I am a huge germaphobe and this worked well enough for me to actually take a bath at my new place with the jets on!” — Ann
An internet address and password logbook to help keep track of your important login info for social media, online banking, school portals, and more. Sorry but yourname123 isn’t a good password, no matter how easy it is to remember.
Promising review: “When we have so many internet addresses and passwords to remember, it gets really hard — especially when you get older and have trouble remembering what silly password you gave something. And, we are supposed to change or update passwords from time to time, so this is a great tool to help us do that. It certainly makes more sense than scribbling on a random piece of paper on your desk and then misplacing it. The trick, however, is to not misplace the book! I HIGHLY recommend this!!” — Carole P
A fabric defuzzer you just glide over an area of clothing/furniture that’s covered in unwanted fuzzies.
our write-up of this magical fabric defuzzer! The battery-operated model requires two AA batteries that aren’t included, but you can buy some right here!
Promising review: “Okay, I don’t normally rave about things like this. I bought this on a whim in a last attempt 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. Along came this lil’ baby. Not only is my duvet cover basically brand new, but I have found a new hobby. I’m depilling everything. Sweatshirts, leggings, blankets, socks, anything that looks like it needs some love. It does the job quickly and leaves everything looking fresh. Hi, 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
