A KOSE oil cleanser for people with oily skin! Now, that may confuse you at first (“But why would I put more oil on oily skin!” “That makes no sense!”), but bear with me — your skin is overproducing oil because it’s in desperate need of moisture. This stuff? It’ll remove all traces of makeup and built-up gunk while still giving your complexion a dose of hydration needed to halt that excess sebum.


Amazon

Promising review: “This is a holy grail cleanser that saved my skin from cystic acne and blackheads. A full bottle of this cleansing oil lasted me about a little over seven months. For reference, I have super oily skin that is also very sensitive and acne-prone. Although this particular brand does contain mineral oil, I didn’t have any reactions to it since I was able to lightly rub the oil onto my entire face and gently take off all of my makeup at once! It emulsifies into a milky wish liquid upon contact with water. I recommend only using 1-3 pumps and gently sweeping in wiper-blade motions, not rubbing too hard on your skin. Since this is oil, it miraculously lifts and pulls on the dirt and debris trapped inside my (huge) pores and made my blackheads nearly invisible for most of the time after cleansing.” —SAPfan

Hair extensions with over 4,000 (!!!!!!) positive reviews. These realistic clip-ins add immediate volume and length to your mane, because let’s face it — your hair now grows about one inch a year ever since your last “trim”.

A microfiber drying mat for all my fellow New Yorkers who understand the struggle of limited countertop space. This is designed with a removable dish rack that acts as a way to store everything from pans to cutlery, but can easily be folded up and stored away when not in use.


Amazon

Promising review: “I love, love, LOVE this drying rack. I got so tired of having a bulky metal dish rack sitting on my counter taking up space, so I decided to give this a shot and I’m so glad I did. I really like that you can move the rack to different positions, the microfiber is very absorbent, and the rack itself is strong. The best part is that when dishes are done drying, it can be folded up and stored under the sink to make my counters less cluttered.” —Stephanie Jones

A Dr. Bronner’s organic lip balm set available in unscented, peppermint, lemon lime, and orange ginger flavors. The beauty of this four-pack? Keep one in your car, one in your purse, one at your office, and one at home. Never let the devastation of forgetting to bring lip balm ruin your day.


Amazon

These organic balms use a combination of organic jojoba, avocado, and hemp oils to really penetrate the surface of your lips for ultimate hydration.

Promising review: “This is by far one of the best lip balms I’ve ever used. It is comprised primarily of oils, rather than waxes; this means that your lips actually absorb the product. As a result, I find that my lips are moisturized and no longer have a thin layer of wax/dead skin sitting on the surface, a problem that I’ve encountered with a lot of other products.” —May

Computer glasses that take away the headache of staring at your laptop screen all day. Literally! These block all that pesky blue light seeping in from your monitor, the culprit behind your mid-afternoon headaches made worse by non-stop Excel sheets and “per my last email” responses.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I work in front of a screen all day and had recently been getting headaches due to blue light exposure. You can clearly see the change of color when you put these on, and they’ve made a world of difference for me. Plus, you can’t beat the price!” —kwatson

Reusable silicone bags to store the sandwich you so proudly prepared and brought to work today. While this won’t stop you from eating your lunch for breakfast (me bringing food from home = me eating it at 10AM), it *will* stop you from using all those wasteful plastic baggies.


Amazon

These non-toxic silicone baggies are both microwave- and dishwasher-safe, are designed with a pinch-lock seal, and are available in four sizes to suit your food-from-home needs.

Promising review: “I love these things! They seal quite well and prevent liquids from leaking, are easy to clean with both the dishwasher or just hot soapy water, and they work great for leftovers. These are also my solution for no longer throwing away plastic bags used to store leftover food.” —Alex

Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in eight colors).

Bra extenders that add two inches of length to any band, making this the perfect accessory for anyone who’s looking for a little extra breathing room *or* found a great bra in the clearance bin that’s just a bit too tight. Presenting an easy solution!


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “Bought these for my pregnancy based on a tip from a recently pregnant friend. Total gamechanger. Only had to buy a new sized bra once, and then used these for the rest of my pregnancy, as my cup size didn’t change any more but omg my ribcage just kept on expanding and expanding to accommodate baby. IMO, these make wearing a regular bra possible during those body-changing portions of pregnancy, saving me money in the long run. Additionally, they work as expected…they clip onto the original spacers easily, they match up with the original hooks really well, and they are very comfortable and easy to use. Best $6 I’ve ever spent on Amazon. Buy them, you won’t regret it.” —Kiki

Kiss nail adhesives for the person who has a fancy event tonight but — SURPRISE — has no time/energy to get a proper mani. With these, you just peel, press on, and that is it: no more sitting in salon chairs, no more smudge marks because the polish never dried properly, no acetone scent.


amazon.com

This kit comes with 30 different nail sizes and six accent nails to accommodate different nail sizes, and removal is a breeze — just soak your nails in polish remover for about a minute before gently peeling off the adhesive.

Promising review: “OMG! These are great! I did not believe they would last as long as gels or acrylic nails, but they did. I put them on in less than five minutes and wore them for over two weeks. They are thinner than acrylics and look really natural.” —Kelly Berner

Souper Cubes freezing trays to keep leftovers fresh and not taking up precious space in the fridge. These stackable silicone trays are an amazing way to store soups and sauces until they’re ready to be consumed.


instagram.com / Via @soupercubes, instagram.com / Via @soupercubes

Each divider has four measurement lines, and the trays themselves come with clear lids that keep out odor and maintain freshness.

Promising review: “These are fantastic. I live in Alaska and not-gross produce is something we only get in the summer time, so I make tons of veggie soup and tomato sauce all summer to get us through the winter. I heart the planet and was using glass containers, but they’re kind of a pain. THESE SOUPER CUBES ARE AMAZING! So far I’ve done ratatouille stew, tomato vegetable soup, and marinara. Not only are my cubes not stained, they work perfectly. I’ve been flash freezing two trays at a time in my deep freezer, transferring the cubes to a silicone freezer bag, and then freezing the next batch. I’ve had no issue with release or buckling, and the portion sizes are PERFECT. The only irritation I have is that the teenager keeps thawing the marinara and dipping *everything* in it and he’s totally hogging it. I think I have to hide the next batch at the neighbor’s.” —Knitting in the last frontier

BPA-free silicone wine glasses that will save you so much freakin’ money in the long run.

Let’s no longer mourn the beautiful porcelain glasses you were gifted at your bridal shower. They’re in the past.


Amazon

Promising review: “One of my best purchases on Amazon! We took these out to the coast with us as we like to sip a bottle of wine and watch the waves roll in. The problem with regular glasses is that you have to be so careful not to drop them for fear of breaking them, plus they don’t fit well into the cup holders on folding chairs. These are so much more convenient! I dropped one and lost some wine, but not the glass. They also fit in my cupholder and was able to throw them in the dishwasher.” —Rob & Robin

An Aquapaw Slow Treater to take the hassle out of pet bathing and grooming: just use the suction cup on the back to adhere it to any surface, add in some peanut butter between the silicone nubs, and boom! Your dog is now fully distracted and shampooing will no longer be a hassle.


Amazon, amazon.com

This is both dishwasher- and freezer-safe, plus is made from FDA-grade silicone.

Promising review: “I just finished cutting toenails on my three dogs with their total cooperation, thanks to this product. I just put squirt cheese in between the nubs of the slow treater, laid it on the grooming table, and the dogs were happily licking away while I worked on their feet. No pulling away, no second person to hold the dog, just me, some cheese, and the slow treater. I’m a fan!” —D. Dipietro

14.

A Skinfood exfoliating mask that uses a powerful blend of black sugar to tackle every skincare concern you have while leaving your complexion smoother than a baby’s bottom. Blackheads? Dullness? No longer your problem.


Amazon

Promising review: “This mask is unreal and doesn’t mess around. Use as directed because it works best when you do some preliminary exfoliating, rubbing the product into the skin, and then letting it sit for 10 minutes. Wash off and your skin will literally feel like the supple dream skin you pray for every night. I have tried my fair share of exfoliating masks and my goto used to be an inordinately expensive Peter Thomas Roth’s pumpkin enzyme mask, but the price of this Skinfood one has converted me!” —Han

Promising review: “I used this on my grandma’s antique dresser to get rid of some water marks, and was absolutely shocked and thrilled at the amazing results. Worth every penny!” —Pantera1014

OPI drying drops that layers your mani with jojoba and vitamin e, creating a barrier that both nourishes and protects your nails whilst they’re still drying. Hasta la vista, pillow smudges! You’ll no longer we be ruining my carefully applied polish.


Amazon

Promising review: “This stuff is awesome! I’m not sure how I’ll be able to paint my nails again without using this stuff! Very simple to use. After applying my top coat I usually just need a small drop on each nail and then I just go lay on the couch and watch some tv or surf on my phone. Am I still cautious after using this product? Yes, but am I able to accidentally brush up a blanket or grab a drink without fear of smearing, smudging or otherwise ruining my newly painted nails? Nope! Worth the cost! I bought this about three months ago and have painted my nails at LEAST twice a week (really hard on my nails, work in surgery so I repaint them all the time) and I still have a full bottle.” —Hippos

A cookie cutter set filled with 101 plastic shapes, INCLUDING Halloween-themed ones. *prepares to bite into a chocolate chip treat that looks like a pumpkin, witch, bat, or ghost*


amazon.com

Promising review: “I’m so glad I went for this set instead of spending tons of money on steel cutters. I made Halloween cookies with my seven-year-old nephew using the halloween ones, and we both had lots of fun! Cuts nicely and cleanly, dough does not stick to the plastic, and I hand-washed them and let them dry on the rack just like any other utensil/dish. Can’t wait to try the Christmas ones next month!” —JK

Battery-operated LED lights perfect for those basement stairs that lead into your laundry room, which doubles as a dark abyss that’s possibly the home of a ghost. These puppies are equipped with motion sensors — meaning they’ll turn on the second your toe hits the ground. (Every family starring in a horror movie needs these installed ASAP.)


amazon.com

The best part? These are super easy to install! Just peel back the attached adhesive, carefully place it on any surface, and that’s it! You’re done! No more stumbling in the dark.

Promising review: “These lights have worked out great around the house. I’ve put them on the stairwell and true to their description, they light up well when sensing motion. They won’t light up as easily when sufficient sunlight is on them because they are meant to only function in the dark. (Sometimes, near dusk, I would have to get fairly close to them before they would turn on.) But once night hits, those things light up as soon as I come down off the other stairwell when ready to pay the basement a visit an perhaps do some laundry. I will note that the adhesive tape is VERY strong, as in MAKE SURE that you have them exactly where you want them before applying.” —Kristopher D. Penland

A can of Sprayway that will leave your glass genuinely glistening. The best part? This ammonia-free formula dissolves grime and grit without leaving *any* streaks. Not a single one.


Amazon

Promising review: “This glass cleaner is the best that I have found! I tried all the home remedies with vinegar, rubbing alcohol, Dawn dish soap, and many other name brand cleaners you can find at any store. Nothing worked to clean the streaks and haze from the windshield on the inside of my car except for this. My car windows are clear and streak-free.” —Becky L. Snook

Miracle-Gro food spikes you’ll appreciate if you love plants, but a) weren’t blessed with the advantage of a green thumb, and b) laziness is your defining feature. These slowly release micronutrients into soil for up to two months, thus allowing your indoor plants to thrive.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I swear by these plant food spikes!!! The package says they are for indoor plants, but I actually use them for all of my outdoor plants, especially my herbs. I first tried these after planting some basil and other herbs that seemed to be taking an eternity to grow. I went to a local home improvement store and searched the garden center for plant food, but many of them were priced much higher than I was willing to spend until I found these spikes. I figured I’d give them a try since they were so inexpensive and wow! Within just a few days, my plants had grown more than double what they had grown in the previous several weeks. One of my friends (who also enjoys gardening) came over to my house and was in awe of how big and healthy all of my herbs were. When I told her about these spikes, she went straight from my house to purchase some and had the exact same growth results.” —GatorDO17

This primer is paraben-free and lightweight, plus it’s infused with both pearl powder to enhance the vibrancy of your shadow AND a sebum-controlling powder to stop oily lids in their tracks.

Promising review: “Let me start by saying that I have used nearly every eyeshadow primer available. From expensive to cheap…none of them hold a candle to this. I have very oily skin, but this primer lets my shadow last a full eight hours or more. I could get maybe five or six out of the other brands if I’m lucky! Thank you to Elizabeth Mott for finally making a primer that lasts! I seriously love this stuff.” —Melissa Mae

Get it from Amazon for $13.06.

A lint-free, non-abrasive microfiber mitt that, when combined with soapy water, will leave your car looking brand spankin’ new. Who got a professional car wash? Not you! Those are way too expensive! But at least it’ll look as if you did.


Amazon

This microfiber mitt is also great at snatching up all that dust residing inside your home.

Promising review: “I bought this to use as a duster for my house and boy, does it work beautifully. It picks up dust anywhere, gets into little niches that most dusters don’t work on, and it does not spread it around in the air — it just sticks to the mitt. I just ordered two more.” —MSL

Get it from Amazon for $5.29.

Promising review: “I’ve been dreaming of a brush that does what this brush does since I was about 10. I love it! It is so fast and now replaces my daily routine of throwing my wet hair into a bun. It now takes me less than 10 minutes to completely dry and style my hair, and it gives me that bouncy blowout look. This is the best 50 bucks I’ve ever spent.” –Amazon Customer

A cooling textured mask that looks, smells, and feels like (*le gasp*) 🍦 ICE CREAM 🍦. This mint chip tub, which should be placed in the fridge before use, will cool and refresh your skin in a way that only soft serve on a hot summer day could compete.

Promising review: “I love this product! The texture is so soft and smooth and, of course, it smells like a delectable mint ice cream treat!

This FlexiSnake is great for sinks and showers in which the water takes forever to go down, plus it’s reusable — just clean with hot water and soap after each use.

Promising review: “I tried every drain cleaner known to mankind in an attempt to clear my bathtub’s drain and nothing worked. Seriously dudes, NOTHING worked. After reading the reviews on this I figured what the heck, let’s give it a try. I wore elbow length rubber gloves and a medical face mask; I was ready for battle (I highly recommend you do this as well because the splash back is REAL and it smells of demon butt). After shoving it down the drain just once the most god-awful-looking sea monster of a stinky hair clump came out. I did it about a dozen more times until no more hair monsters came up. I turned on the faucet and that sound of water finally draining through the pipes was like angels singing the Hallelujah choir. That pipe is CLEAR, my dudes! I can finally take showers again without feeling like I’m standing in a goopy stank pond!” —Kayla Cooper

You use this product within 24 hours of coloring your hair, shampoo as usual, then pour the crystals from the packet into your hand.

This is also heat-resistant and dishwasher-safe!

Promising review: This is exactly what I’ve been looking to find for years. Why did I waste so much money buying nylon turners?

I’ve washed the first ones I’ve torn off the roll several times now and they DO survive the laundry and perform just as well afterward. I’ve only used five bamboo towels this month, washed them and re-used. Several times. I would have been through a whole roll of paper towels by now.” —A.Clark

Promising review: “This is a great cutting board. Easy to clean, has the black rubbery sides for easy grip when cleaning or moving, and it even has little feet so that it doesn’t sit flush on your counter, making it easier to pick up and move around. Haven’t been terribly careful with the surface so far and I can confidently say that you don’t even see many marks on it from aggressive knife work. There is like a little trough (for lack of a better word) around one of the sides that works great to prevent meat juices from running off onto the counter top.” —M

amazon.com

Promising review: “Best. Thing. Ever. This product works like a charm. It gets the sand from between their pads, and is gentle enough that even my most stubborn pup tolerates it! I have a terrier/schnauzer that likes to dig, a mini golden doodle that is prissy about her paws, and a standard labradoodle puppy that is still very fuzzy. We have a farm where it is extremely sandy and we stay in a travel trailer. The amount of sand they were tracking in to the camper was driving me CRAZY. It takes me three minutes to clean and dry off all of their paws. Seriously the best purchase I have made!” —Rachel

Promising review: “We are living in an apartment, so storage is always an issue and the bathroom is no exception. No one in the household could take a shower without crash/boom as you’re knocking something down sitting on a shelf or the bathtub rim. This is a game changer. There are so many pockets with so much room in each, I actually have space left over. My husband’s back scrubber, my shampoo and hair care, my daughters bubble baths, bath floofies, all fit with room to spare. And the pockets are all a nice height so I’m not crouching to find anything.” —goodnite.graci

Promising review: “I have expensive suede booties that I mainly wear to go out so they’re subjected to rain, alcohol, and average bar grime. There’s nothing worse than wearing something and stressing about it getting ruined. I used this product for the first time after a year of wearing my booties and still, these wipes removed a year of damage. They didn’t ruin the suede and my booties feel soft again!” —AmazonShopper
