    39 Products That Might Actually Meet Your Very High Expectations

    A mix of budget-friendly and splurge-worthy things that have one thing in common: they deliver what they promise.

    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 — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A pet hair–removing roller that'll actually get rid of the layer of fur covering...well, pretty much everything in sight. You love your furry friend, but it would be nice to see the original color of the couch again!

    youtube.com

    It has 3,000 five-star reviews! This roller doesn't use adhesive sheets — it has a special lint-trapping surface that can be reused over and over again!

    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-pound 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

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    2. A pack of Mighty Patch pimple patches for helping to absorb giant zits overnight so you don't have to deal with them in the morning.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These little patches are outstanding. They work just as advertised. This is the first acne product that worked just as I hoped. Put the patch on an annoying blemish at night and in the morning, there will be white gunk on that tiny little patch. Brilliant!! No downside to this product. Does not cause drying or flaking." —Robin V.

    Get a 36-pack from Amazon for $12.50.

    3. 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

    Get it from Glossier for $16 (available in four shades).

    4. A natural yet effective stain remover — it might be your only hope of eliminating those year-old grease splatters from your formerly favorite shirt (that you couldn't bring yourself to throw away because you've been waiting for a miracle product to rescue it).

    Yi Yang / BuzzFeed

    I have this stain remover, and it has rescued many, many pieces of clothing that would have otherwise been ruined. Read my full review of the Puracy stain remover!

    Promising review: "I have tried several stain removers and have to say this stuff really does remove stains. It's removed blood, grape juice, baby barf (we had a baby with severe reflux), chocolate, grass stains, sweat stains, melon, pretty much everything. The only thing it hasn't been able to remove was mashed banana, weirdly enough. My mother-in-law tried it, and she loved it and couldn't believe how well it worked. I have to say I was almost shocked at how well this worked. If you are wondering if it is really worth the price, it is. My wife says they should rename it to 'Chill Mom' because she no longer worries about stains at all, and she says that is priceless when you have a very curious and adventurous little boy who keeps finding new ways to get dirty." —Martin Isaksen

    Get it from Amazon for $11.04.

    5. A wood polish and conditioner made of beeswax and orange oil to completely transform your old cabinets and tables. Water marks, begone!

    amazon.com

    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

    6. A lightweight and cruelty-free eye shadow primer that'll work overtime to ensure your makeup stays creaseless and smudge-free all day.

    Before and after photos of a reviewer's eye makeup at 6:30 am and 8:30 pm. There is hardly any creasing
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is the bomb! I have super oily eyelids and work 12-hour shifts. This keeps my shadow from creasing for at least 10 hours. You don't need a lot of it, as stated in other reviews." —C. Kemp

    Get it from Amazon for $13.06.

    7. A set of storage containers for extending the life of fruits and veggies so you actually get a chance to finish everything in the fridge before it goes bad. Yup, it's basically a miracle pod.

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    These are BPA-free and dishwasher-safe. Read our review of the Rubbermaid FreshWorks storage containers!

    Promising review: "I wish I would have gotten these sooner. I bought strawberries for my children, and then I forgot about them. I found them in the back of the refrigerator almost TWO WEEKS later, and they were still good. The real miracle is how long it keeps zucchini. Zucchini starts to get mushy in the crisper drawer after just a few days. Again, these miracle containers have kept it fresh for close to two weeks now. I've kept cut lettuce, cut cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, cucumbers, zucchini, sliced bell peppers, strawberries, blackberries, cut jicama, and carrots in these containers. I've had fantastic results with all of them." —Laura

    Get a four-piece set from Amazon for $23.96.

    8. 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 toilet 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

    Get a two-ounce bottle from Amazon for $8.70 (available in 20 scents).

    9. A pack of cleaning tablets to remove the lime and mineral build-up (as well any food residue) in your dishwasher, leaving it clean and odor-free.

    amazon.com

    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 just not getting clean. Then, I became aware that the water softener no longer was 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 in Good Housekeeping magazine. 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 instructions, and ran the regular cycle. I did not expect the results I got! The 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 on a monthly basis, as recommended. I am amazed!" —Sheila

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $5.20.

    10. An essential oil stick that'll work its magic when a mid-day migraine strikes. Nothing but sweet, sweet relief here!

    Katy Herman / BuzzFeed

    Read our review of the Migrastil headache relief 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.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    11. All-natural bottle cleaning tablets for restoring your stainless steel thermos to a brand new state (you know, the one that's still not completely clean no matter how many times you wash it). 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

    12. An eyeliner stamp so getting matching wings isn't such a drawn-out ordeal.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    One side is a winged stamp and the other side is a regular eyeliner pen.

    Promising review: "This product is amazing. Seriously. Not only does it make PERFECT wings, but I have pretty small eyes that squinch up when I smile, laugh, etc., which is super annoying because my eyeliner is always smudged. These pens though — not a sign of smudging at all. Buy it." —Tara Doyle Robinson

    Get it from Amazon for $13.97.

    13. A jewelry cleaning stick to restore the bling to your ring. There's zero mess and you can use it on the go.

    youtube.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: "This is the best little impulse buy I have ever made! I'm shocked, actually. In less than a minute, I opened the package and I was in the process of cleaning my wedding ring with ease. I typically clean my ring weekly at home, so I did not expect to see immediate results in the form of gray grime residue left on the cleaning bristles! After a quick rinse and dry with an ordinary hand towel, my ring looked the best it ever has after an at-home cleaning. The diamonds shoot sparkles and reflect colors beautifully. Only my jeweler makes it look better! Another bonus: the brushes are soft and flexible enough that they get into tiny nooks and crannies and will be effective with chains and pendants with a lot of grooves and small stones. You cannot go wrong with this purchase." —MrsReading

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $10.79 or one for $5.49.

    14. A cozy teddy coat that'll feel just as luxe and warm as the more expensive version you see on Instagram.

    Target

    I first saw my co-worker wearing this and I ordered one the same day! The quality is absolutely amazing and it's the perfect oversized fit to throw over anything, from T-shirts to thicker sweaters. 10/10 recommend!

    Promising review: "Really cozy and warm! It goes by its name 'oversized,' so if you want it more on the fitted side, order it a size down. Otherwise, it is a cute and trendy jacket that you will love!" —bella

    Get it from Target for $40 (available in sizes XS/S–XL/XXL and three colors).

    15. Hydrating sheet masks perfect for a cheap yet effective at-home facial, because self-care doesn't need to cost a fortune!

    Amazon

    Read our full review of Dermal Korea Collagen Essence facial masks!

    Promising review: "I'm a guy that cares about my skin. I'm 40 and our rough Chicago winters wreak havoc with my combination skin. I bought this pack on an impulse. Omg! The first night I used the herbal one. I read the ingredients and the mask smelled exactly like what it said it was. I could feel it working and when I took it off, the effect was instant. My skin was literally flawless and not for five minutes! It stayed tight and moisturized all day. I love these masks even though they're quite messy to apply. Ordered more. At this price and effect, this product is a steal!" —PaulP

    16. A bottle of Mike's Hot Honey so good, you'll want to drizzle it over anything and everything. Sweet + spicy = heavenly combo

    Amazon

    Read our full review of Mike's Hot Honey!

    Promising review: "I tend to shy away from spicy foods, but I couldn’t resist the opportunity to try a new condiment to liven up snacks and recipes with. I was afraid the spice would be overpowering, but it’s actually quite mellow and smooth; just the right touch of heat. So far, I’ve enjoyed this on fruit salad (banana/strawberry/blueberry) with cottage cheese and drizzled on the original Chick-fil-A sandwich....so delicious!" —Sleeps in Rain

    Get it from Amazon for $8.48.

    17. 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

    Get it from Glossier for $24.

    18. Pantene Rescue Shots hair ampoules with a concentrated formula that'll help dry and damaged hair feel silky smooth again. It's not too late to cancel that expensive salon treatment!!!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My hair was processed and damaged, my husband would say that it feels like a straw bale. This little ampule changed my life. After one use, my hair was soft as silk, shiny, and manageable. It was completely unreal how this product transformed my hair and I knew I had to find more. I bought two boxes on Amazon and will continue to use this religiously. For something so inexpensive, it is a game changer. I now have my friends on the Rescue train and they are just as impressed." —melissa michael

    Get two three-packs from Amazon for $9.69.

    19. Coty Airspun loose face power for giving your makeup a flawless finish (even if you only spent five minutes on it).

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "It's perfect!!! It comes with so much product, and the puff it comes with is pretty handy. The application is smooth. My makeup came out flawless. I set my makeup with this and worked out right after. THERE WAS NO SEPARATION, NO CREASING. This powder blessed me. GOD BLESS." —andrea

    Get it from Amazon for $5.97 (available in six shades).

    20. 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

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in four sizes and 22 colors).

    21. A KitchenAid stand mixer 100% worth the ~dough~. Baking huge batches of gingerbread cookies will be an absolute breeze with this kitchen helper.

    Amazon

    The five-quart stainless steel bowl can mix dough for nine dozen cookies or four loaves of bread in a single batch! The mixer comes with a coated flat beater, a coated dough hook, a six-wire whip, and a pouring shield.

    Promising review: "Hands down this is the best blender on the market. It has multiple tools which enable you to do many tasks in the kitchen. The mixing capability is superior to all other mixers, especially the old hand-held models. This mixes everything so well that now it's hard to make a mistake when blending things because it does such a great job. It's quiet, and you can set it and go attend to other tasks while it works away." —Tie Dye John

    Get it from Amazon for $379 (available in 45 colors).

    22. An Aquis microfiber body towel (the full-size version of the popular hair towel) that's far more absorbent than an average cotton one. Not only will it help you dry off faster, but it'll also dry quickly after each use.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I've been using the smaller 'hair drying' version of this towel for years but somehow it never occurred to me to look for a larger version...until a shoulder injury made manipulating thick, heavy bath towels difficult and sometimes painful. I'm so glad I finally thought of it! These towels not only solve the shoulder discomfort problem, they are actually more absorbent than regular bath towels. They fold easily to hang on the towel rack and they dry out quickly. I think they have a classic look. And they take up less space in my small linen closet. I'll be gradually donating my old bath towels to the local humane society and replacing them with this type. Best purchase I've made in a long time." —Sally M.

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99 (available in three colors).

    23. A compact air purifier (with a three-stage filtration system) for catching dust, pollen, smoke, odor, mold spores, and pet dander so you can breathe easy in your own home.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "After having used this for a few months I can confidently say how great this air purifier is. With the wildfires, the air quality in Oregon has been very unhealthy and at times hazardous. Combined with the heat we have no choice but to leave our windows open or the air conditioner running. We also have hardwood floors so the dust, dander, and pet hair gets kicked up very easily. This air purifier has made a world of difference! No smoke smell in the room we run it in and I don't have to worry as much about my son constantly breathing in the smog." —4ngryhoeb4g

    Get it from Amazon for $71.55.

    24. 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.

    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."

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $9.95.

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

    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

    26. A memory foam seat cushion and lumbar pillow that'll make sitting down for hours and hours a comfier experience.

    amazon.com

    The cover is removable and washable.

    Promising review: "I am now using my memory foam seat cushion with the lumbar pillow, they perfectly complete each other and transformed my old office chair into a premium orthopedic chair sold in ergonomic furniture stores. The lumbar pillow supports my posture and the seat cushion relieves sitting pain. I don't think I can ever go back to sitting long hours without these two. Planning on getting a second set for my dad as a Father's Day gift." —Mario

    Get them from Amazon: the lumbar pillow for $24.95 and the seat cushion for $29.95

    27. A cooktop cleaning kit for dislodging stubborn stains that you previously thought were impossible to remove. Your cooktop will be so clean, it might as well be a mirror!

    amazon.com

    This set comes with a 10-ounce bottle of cooktop cleaner, one cleaning pad, and one scraper.

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $10.47.

    28. A do-it-all Instant Pot so you can consolidate several appliances into one and cook dinner in 15 minutes (instead of having to order takeout).

    Amazon

    This handy kitchen gadget has seven functions: rice cooker, pressure cooker, slow cooker, steamer, sauté, yogurt maker, and warmer! Check out our review of the Instant Pot!

    Promising review: "This is quite possibly the coolest, most versatile kitchen gadget I’ve ever owned. I love it so much that I’ve purchased two more for friends and relatives. What can it do? I think the real question is 'What can’t it do?' I truly believe you could replace every cooking appliance (including your oven and stove top) and do EVERYTHING in the Instant Pot. I purchased two sizes for my own use: the three-quart (which is my almost-every-day workhorse for two person dishes) and the eight-quart (which I bring out to handle my dinner party dishes). Everything I’ve tried has been fabulous. In the realm of kitchen appliances, there is no better investment than the Instant Pot. Highly recommended!!!" —Stereoman

    Get it from Amazon for $59.89+ (available in three sizes and colors).

    29. A purple shampoo to take out the warm/brassy tones from color-treated hair and keep your dye job looking fresh. 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

    Get it from Amazon for $10.97.

    30. Squat-proof leggings that only look (and feel) expensive so you can stock up on several colors.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Not only are they squat-proof but they are comfy. If you’re looking for a great pair of workout leggings, definitely give these a chance. I’m a kinesiology student and active wear is a must when we are conducting our assessments and labs. I was in class one day talking about my leggings issue, and noticed one of my classmates wearing what I thought were Lululemon leggings. That’s when she told me that they were from Amazon by a brand named Tsla. I checked them out and for about a couple of weeks I kept going back and forth on whether I wanted to give them a try since I’m really picky about my leggings. But in the end I gave in and I’m so glad I did. Now I have four pairs of leggings under $60, instead of only two for $200 (Lululemon). I call that a GREAT DEAL!" —FamilyCox

    Get them from Amazon for $12.98+ (available in sizes XS–2XL and 45 styles/colors).

    31. Facial razors for getting rid of peach fuzz or touching up your eyebrows quickly and painlessly — no need to splurge on an expensive dermplaning treatment!

    Amazon

    These even come with an extra attachment for precise eyebrow shaping.

    Promising review: "I used to pay a professional to dermaplane my face once a month to remove the peach fuzz, which makes me look older and makes the makeup application more cumbersome. I searched for years for a home product to use to save money and time. This is the closest I have been able to get to professional dermaplaning in the convenience of my home, on my time/schedule, and at a fraction of the price. Love it!" —SEM1969

    Get a three-count from Amazon for $4.99.

    32. A pair of waterproof (but breathable) sneakers so you'll never get wet feet when a sudden rain shower hits. They're comfy enough to walk all day in and are sustainably made.

    Vessi

    Vessi cuts down traditional machine knit time from 45 minutes to only 7 minutes, which reduces every pair’s carbon footprint by over 600%. I actually own a pair of these Vessi sneakers and absolutely swear by them. They're super duper comfortable, truly waterproof, and perfect for commuting/traveling.

    Promising review: "Went to Europe for two weeks of rain. Wore my Vessi sneakers everyday and not only were my feet dry, but I walked about eight to nine miles a day in them! Highly recommend!" —Katherine W.

    Get them from Vessi for $135 (available in women's shoe sizes 5–11 and three colors; or check out other waterproof styles).

    33. A tube of clump-free and and cruelty-free mascara to go the extra mile (or err, half an inch) — people might even think you got lash extensions.

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    34. A bottle of do-it-all cleaner that can banish stains left on your cookware and sink by rust, burnt food, mineral deposits, permanent makers, and more.

    amazon.com

    One reviewer said it even removed permanent marker! Read our review of the Bar Keeper's Friend soft cleanser.

    Promising review: "The first day I had my new stainless pans I mistakenly put one on the side burner of my grill and it discolored the inside so severely, nothing could remove the stain. I was devastated! I did some research and found out about Bar Keeper's Friend cleanser and took the chance. I wish I took a better 'before' photo to show just how much discoloration there was, but it covered a good quarter of the pan. I can't believe how wonderfully well this product worked! It did take a little scrubbing, but I am amazed by the results! Remarkable product!" —Shanalanahan

    35. A set of colored fineliner pens perfect for starting a bullet journal or writing color-coded notes.

    36. A pair of noise-isolating headphones — it'll block out unwanted background sounds, deliver clear and crisp audio, feel comfortable even after hours of wear, and won't be too hard on your wallet.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "We have short walls at my job and I needed headphones to keep down the distractions while working. I could not be more pleased with my purchase. I work easier at my desk playing soft music through my headphones without listening to co-workers talking. They are very soft on my ears and the sound is clear. Great battery life. I would definitely recommend these headphones." —Amazon Customer

    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

    38. A spill stopper that'll stop the pasta from boiling over behind your back because you're tired of scrubbing the stovetop (yet again!).

    It's made of heavy silicone that's heat-resistant up to 400 degrees and microwave- and dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "Wow, wow, wow. I have no words to describe how great this product is. I'm a mom with a large family that cooks and bakes all the time. There is never a time that something doesn't spill over even when standing and watching the pot, but with this, life has just gotten easy. I think I'm throwing out all my pot covers after using this. I am mess-free." —Rackel

    Get it from Amazon for $16.80+ (available in three colors).

    39. A set of crystal clear food containers perfect for packing lunches or storing leftovers. They're 100% leak-proof, and you can throw them in the dishwasher, microwave, and freezer with zero issues.

    Promising review: "This is really aesthetically pleasing, and perfect for meal-prepping. My healthy salad and veggies look so bright and colorful — people often comment on how delicious my lunch looks, and it’s usually just a green salad. The crystal clear container really makes it look appetizing, and the seal is super tight. I’ve thrown soup in my purse and carried it around all day without worrying. I’ve always preferred glass, but these are so light, nestle so well, are super easy to clean, and so drip-proof that maybe I’m a convert. I immediately purchased another set as soon as I got the first." —Joy3888
