Hero Cosmetics Hydrocolloid Mighty Patches prevent picking and ~drain~ those zits at maximum speed — because what do we want joining us on our next outing? Not a pimple. Slap this transparent sticker on before bed (or during the day TBH) to reduce painful pimple swelling, stat.

Promising review: “This sucks up the pus from those deep, painful whiteheads and brings it to the surface. I’m totally fascinated. Where have you been my whole life? I suffer from hormonal adult acne and this really helped to reduce the inflammation and my pimples heals so much faster. The patch holds up well and it’s a reminder to stop touching that pimple. I’m very tempted to pop it, but popping it leaves to scarring. It’s also quite invisible, so you can get away with wearing it outside. Good stuff!” —Karin Chang

And! Hero Cosmetics Mighty Patch Surface Patches treat cluster breakouts (cc: that special time of the month in which your jawline is shown no mercy) with the same medical-grade hydrocolloid formula. All you’ll have to do is peel and stick.

Promising review: “As embarrassing as this is to admit, I have had issues with body and butt acne like no other. I had tried everything to clear them up, but nothing helped. I’m horrible at picking at blemishes as well, so I decided to give these a try. I LOVE these patches!! Even better that they come in large patches, which was a lifesaver for cluster bumps! WHOA! I would leave these on for eight to 10 hours and it would draw so much of the pus out. After just one use of a patch, I noticed a dramatic difference and sometimes it completely cleared them up.” —Ashley

A compact Dash juicer because we demand OJ fresher than the prince of Bel-Air. This easy-to-use gadget holds up to 32 ounces of liquid and is equipped with adjustable pulp control, aka *you* can decide whether or not you want to eat orange bits between sips (#pulpisgross).

reviewer photo of blue and white juicer with lime juice inside


Promising review: “I make Key Lime Pie several times a year, and juicing dozens of limes by hand used to be such a chore, that it almost wasn’t worth it to me anymore. This year I ordered the Dash Go Citrus Juicer, and it made juicing all those limes a breeze! Not only did it juice each lime dry (thus wasting less), but it saved my time (I’m talking hours) and my fingers. Once the carafe was full, I was able to measure it and pour the juice right into the mixing bowl with the other ingredients. I’m so glad I got this thing! It’s nice that I can control the pulp, too.” —Amazon Customer

Promising review: “This stuff is fantastic! I have fine hair so I’m always nervous about it being weighed down or looking greasy. This didn’t do that at all! My hair was starting to show damage from coloring and styling and after just one use, it looks soooo much better! I’ll be buying this again for sure.” —DolceSoprano

Get it from Amazon for $16.


A bottle of Drop It, a natural sulfate and tannin remover that you can ~drop~ in your Ikea wine glass to halt hangovers in just 20 seconds. Resume your nightly Monstober DCOM tradition with some red in hand, knowing you won’t wake up to a monster headache.

Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

Drop It recommends one to two drops for each glass of white wine, two to three for a glass of red, and seven to nine if you’re treating the whole bottle at once. Once it’s in the glass, swirl lightly for 20 seconds, and you should be raring to go!

Promising review: “I became really sensitive to wine in my 30s and through a lot of trial and painful error, I thought I might have to give up on wine altogether. Then I found out about the preservatives being a possible cause and decided to give this product a shot. So glad I did!! I’m still pretty sensitive to reds but this helps tremendously so that I can have a glass with dinner without a headache immediately settling in. Whites cause me no problem whatsoever! I love that it takes so little product to make a difference to a whole bottle. Just a few drops, a few minutes, and we are good to go.” —CastawayIrons

Get it from Amazon for $14.99.


A compression foot sleeve reviewers swear helps with chronic heel pain and plantar fasciitis. Simply slip this on under your socks and voilà! You’ll be able to walk 500 miles (and maybe even 500 more) sans discomfort.

Promising review: “I have had nerve (mostly tingling but also minutes and aching) foot pain for approximately 12 years, and I’m still in my 30s. 🙁 Nothing has helped significantly and consistently, until I tried these socks! I typically wear a 9.5 to a 10 in shoes, depending on brand. I ordered the medium size of these socks, and they are a perfect fit for my foot. I’ve tried a number of things before — physical therapy, cheap insoles, more pricey insoles, really expensive custom-made orthotic insoles. Nothing else has given me as much pain relief as these socks have! My pain has not disappeared completely; however, it was typically a 9 every day before and now it’s a 2!!! Very significant improvement in quality of life for me!” —CobbleCreekWoods

Reusable silicone straws for guzzling down iced coffee with gusto. The secret perk of this particular set? Cleanliness! Snap closures mean you can open the straws in half to ensure they’re dry and gunk-free! Just give ’em a good wipe down. No more “cleaning” brushes required.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I never thought I’d be writing a review for straws, but here we are. These are FANTASTIC. I try to be as eco-friendly as possible but was ready to give up. I’ve tried metal straws, but they are tough to clean and I don’t love metal against my teeth. I’ve tried other reusable plastic and silicone options but they don’t work for thicker drinks like smoothies. These actually address all of my issues. I’ve used them for thick smoothies, that I drink daily, and just for other everyday drinks like water. They couldn’t be easier to snap open and clean, dry, then easily snap back into shape to use again.” —M. Alexandra

Downy Wrinkle Releaser fabric spray because yes, that button-down is at the bottom of the hamper and yes, you should have washed it yesterday. But did you? No! Here’s a quick solution.

before and after reviewer images of a wrinkled button down becoming wrinkle-free


Promising review: “This year I have been attending medical school interviews all over the country. I have ONE suit that I do not have the money to continuously dry clean between interviews. I bought these to keep with me when traveling so my suit remains pressed and fresh. It really does what it says. It’s great at keeping clothes crisp and nice smelling, especially if you have a garment that wrinkles easily and you don’t feel like ironing before each wear.” —Taylor 

Get a pack of two from Amazon for $13.94.


A multi-purpose basket that expands to fit your sink *and* collapses so it can be shoved right back into a tiny kitchen cabinet. Cleverly designed with draining holes, this tool is perfect for straining pasta, washing fruits and veggies, or even drying some dishes. You know the metal colander you have now? The one that takes up more space than its worth? Ahem. We think it’s on its way out.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I don’t want a kitchen sink without this tool ever again. I love this! I have had it for a week and it just works for my needs! I ended up getting it for silverware and other small utensils because something got stuck in the garbage disposal somehow. However, it also work for rinsing vegetables and fruits when I have dishes in the sink to clean. I don’t have a dishwasher so being able to separate things is so useful. The size is adjustable and that makes it even more worth it!” —Jocelyn

Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in five colors).


Plastic organizers to prevent your intimates drawer from turning into a junk drawer. Do you hear that? It’s the sound of your expensive underwire crying tears of relief, knowing they’ll no longer be shoved into a corner and ruined in the process.

drawer with two plastic dividers separating bras and underwear


Promising review: “I’ve long been frustrated with my underwear drawer, because everything gets jumbled together — even when I try to fold everything neatly and keep things separate. Lately, I’ve been on an organizational kick, so I decided to give these a try. I’m SO GLAD I did! I can see everything at a glance, which means no more hunting for things or digging through piles to find what I’m looking for. It’s brilliant!” —Orianna

A soundproofing strip because that upstairs neighbor is practicing tap dance routines, your roommate has been blasting the same ’90s Spotify playlist since 7 a.m., and I can really go on but don’t want to. Buy the damn soundproofing strip. You’re welcome.


Promising review: “This product works really well! I needed a quick fix to my home office situation. I live in an apartment in Manhattan and never noticed how much sound comes in and out, until I had to be on conference calls working from home! This little tape made a big difference, took me a couple of minutes to install.” —Sandra Revueltas

Get it from Amazon for $7.97+ (available in four colors).


Reusable K Cups about to save you so much cold hard cash. Not only are these practical puppies *so* much better at reducing waste, but they’re also compatible with all Keurig machines and guarantee good joe every time.

reviewer holding up the purple reusable filter


“I’ve been using these exact ones for years now, and absolutely love them. Every once in a while my old Keurig 2.0 (I’ve since upgraded) would give me an error message indicating it was not a K-pod and therefore could not be used, but after slightly adjusting the pod and closing the top again, it would work just fine! I now have the Keurig K-Elite and haven’t had this issue arise. All in all, these are a wonderful way to use less plastic! I also enjoy ground coffee and find it fresher than K-pods, so you really can’t go wrong with these!” —Kayla Suazo, BuzzFeed Staff

A tiny Bluetooth FM transmitter adapter if your car isn’t old, it’s just…an antique. Hands-free calling and *finally* getting rid of that annoying aux chord are yours for the taking: Plug this into your utility port/cigarette lighter, connect your cell, and voila. So long having to listen to radio talk shows too early in the morning because you can’t stream Spotify.

Promising review: “The connection was easy to set up and the sound is clear. I used this for an eight-hour road trip without any problems and I was able to answer many phone calls while traveling.” —Taz

A liquid-free, reusable rolling screen cleaner because it’s about time you saw what your phone, laptop, and tablet looked like pre- permanent fingertips. A few quick swipes = no more smudges staring back at you whilst you binge the newest Netflix true crime series.


Promising review: “This little device removes the oil from your screen. Often, when you are ‘cleaning’ your screen by wiping it with a cloth, you are simply pushing around the oil into a thin enough layer to see through without noticing it as much. This device actually lifts the oil and removes it. My screen feels like new, which is great because I am picky about my devices. Also, this is much better than cleaning the screen with some kind of wipe since repeated cleaning with most wipes will damage the screen over time. Unbeknownst to me, my wife was cleaning her screen daily and now her screen collects oils far too quickly because she wore off the protective layer. With this product, you don’t need to worry about that. Clean it as often as you want/need and you can continue to enjoy that pristine screen without fear of wearing the oleophobic layer off prematurely. I would highly recommend this to others.” —Alex

Get it from Amazon for $19.95 (available in two sizes).


A TheraBreath oral rinse that will have you looking up at the heavens, the word “thanks” on your lips. Why? Because this stuff will actually (according to over 11,000 reviewers) get rid of morning breath, Cady Heron, as well as keep your breath fresh for a much longer period of time. That’s why.

This rinse works to neutralize bad odors and bacteria in your mouth, and won’t burn your mouth in the process. (I’ve always hated super strong, minty mouthwashes because they legitimately hurt — but with this product, you don’t have to worry about that!)

Promising review: “Ridiculous claims. And for whatever reason…it works. Yes, it does everything it says it will do. Pour a small portion in a measured cup provided with your purchase, swish in your mouth a bit, gargle as well, and in the morning you can kiss your honey with a clean mouth. NO ODOR, NO SMELLY MORNING BREATH. THIS STUFF WORKS!”—John E. Litton

A vent cleaning brush because YES, that vent needs to be cleaned once in a while. Clogged vents = longer drying times = higher utility bills = less money in your bank account for Uber Eats.

Plus, the flexible bristles are great for cleaning beneath large appliances. What’s that, landlord? No pets allowed? Well surprise, there are dust bunnies living beneath my fridge.

Promising review: “Used this a couple of times already and it cleaned out my dryer vent really good. I even stuck it down the hose when I moved my dryer to clean under it! I noticed my clothes are drying a lot faster, so I’ll definitely buy again once I wear these out.” —Amazon Customer

A handheld electric milk frother that makes it easy to whip up your very own, typically very expensive drink at home — and quickly. This stainless-steel whisk truly has so many darn uses: Let your mouth water at the thought of cappuccinos, lattes, hot chocolate, matcha, milk shakes, and more.

It’s battery operated — just run it in some soapy water for an easy cleaning!

Promising review: “Love this little thing! I have every thing you can think of at home for making coffee and espresso… Well I love the Starbucks pumpkin cream cold brew with foam. I set out to make my own. Well I can now make cold foam thanks to this little tool. Love it!” —Gav’s mama

Nip + Fab Glycolic Acid Fix Daily Cleansing Pads scream “scram” to scars, acne outbursts, dullness, and fine lines. Use the textured side of these pads to exfoliate, and then FLIP! The opposite side will polish, smooth, and soothe your complexion with a hefty helping of witch hazel.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “One pad a day keeps all the bad stuff away. This is one of those AHA products that changed everything for me. As long as I’m using these, my skin will be pretty good even if I’m tired and skip all my other stuff. Pretty much stopped my hormonal acne in it’s tracks and my skin feels way more luminous.” —emmaline

Get a pack of 60 from Amazon for $13.95.


A cooktop cleaning kit to help your oven look as clean as the day Home Depot delivered it to your doorstep. This works to cut grease stains and burnt cookie deposits like a knife, cleaning your cooktop surface more efficiently than any of the multi-surface sprays you’ve been using until this point.


This kit comes equipped with a bottle of cleaner, one cleaner, and one scraper.

Promising review: “I hadn’t thoroughly scrubbed my glass cooktop in years and had only wiped down with random multi-cleaners, which never seemed to do much. Then a friend recommended this product…AMAZING! The included scrubbers and scrapers really make the difference. This will leave your cooktop shiny and new, and even marks that had been on there for years came off almost completely. The key is to use very little product! Let it dry to a haze and wipe with a clean, dry cotton towel (just like waxing a car). If you aren’t getting a mirrored finish, it’s because you’ve used too much product and not enough elbow grease to polish off.” —B. Swartwood

Get it from Amazon for $11.99.


Cerave Hydrating Facial Cleanser earns all the overwhelmingly positive TikTok praise it gets. This is moisture balancing, has a lotion-like consistency (which is *chef’s kiss* for sensitive skin), and is packed with ceramides and hyaluronic acid — aka your complexion is about to take a ride on the moisture-sans-pimple train.

Promising review: “Cerave was recommended to me by my dermatologist many years ago, and I have been using it religiously since. I have a mixture of oily to dry skin, depending on the weather and my hormone levels. Every other product I tried either dried out my skin, or caused breakouts, or caused hives. Finally I asked my doctor and she told me I needed something gentle and unscented for my sensitive skin, something that cleans out the dirt and leaves the good oils in my skin alone. I can’t sing praises for this product enough. Per my doc’s recommendation, I use it every morning when I shower, and only use it at night if it was a sweaty day (since my skin dries out quickly). Ever since I started this routine, I stopped breaking out, my skin doesn’t dry out, and no more allergic reactions or irritation. Best facial wash, hands down.” —Alyssa

Get it from Amazon for $14.64.


A TubShroom drain protector invented by a wizard to catch all the hair in your shower (the kind that inevitably leads to clogs). Just think of this magic weapon as your new bathroom bodyguard *and* an easy way to avoid emergency phone calls to your plumber.

reviewer photo of orange tubshroom with hair


Promising review: “My tub/shower drain stopper broke and was going to cost $200-600 to replace as the entire drain and pipe connections had to be removed and replaced. That was not in my budget and I searched for an alternative to the black hole that had become my drain. This inexpensive little TubShroom drain protector and hair catcher dropped right down into the ‘black hole,’stayed in place, looked nice (white against my white tub/shower) and works great! The water drains out (no pooling and creating a small lake in my tub as I shower, with the hair caught around TubShroom.” —Kael

Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in six colors).


Neutrogena Anti-Residue Clarifying Shampoo — because that 10 pounds of dry shampoo you used two days ago is still trapped in your roots. Trust me. It didn’t exactly run away. This anti-residue wash deep cleans build-up that would otherwise lead to lack of body, excessive grease, and *gulp* stringiness.

a clear bottle and cap with the text "Neutrogena Shampoo anti-residue formula"


This nonirritating shampoo should be used once a week (using it too much may make your hair overly dry) and is gentle enough to use on any hair type, including color-treated manes.

Promising review: Getting all the residue left from other hair care products absolutely transforms my hair. I have a lot of fine/thin hair which can get weighed down pretty quick. This comes is a really crisp bottle that is the perfect size, not to mention that since you don’t use it every day, it is lasting such a long time.” —Dillon Okimosh

Get it from Amazon for $4.74.


Kiss nail adhesives for the person who’d rather do one million push-ups than wait for lacquer to dry. With these, you just peel, press on, and that is it: no more sitting in salon chairs, no more bed sheet marks because the polish never properly dried. Reviewers swear they also last for at least three weeks — I think that says enough.

reviewer wearing red press-on nails


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

Get this set from Amazon for $5.97.


A power scrubber kit equipped with three different-sized attachments, each one perfect for the corners, floor, and door of your shower. This takes off years of accumulated build-up in just mere minutes, doing a better (and faster) job than you would have been able to do by hand. To quote the poet that is Daft Punk: this is just better, faster, and stronger.


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 only took five minutes AND it scrubbed my shower to a point where it looked cleaner than it had 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

Get it from Amazon for $14.95.


A no-scrub Wet & Forget cleaner to make “cleaning” as easy as one, two, spritz. This no-rinse product should be used weekly to keep your shower free of mildew, which basically means it will take all of two seconds to feel like you’ve deep-cleaned the place in which you bathe.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “This stuff is excellent. It performs as promised, it has a very nice scent, no fumes, and leaves shower clean with no scrubbing actually necessary. It is very easy to apply and rinse off. It is designed very well, with squirting spout separate from the large container and attached by a longish tube, so you don’t have to hold the heavy container while applying the product. I’ve been using it for quite a while now, and I love it. I highly recommend it.” —Stephanie Martin

Get it from Amazon for $17.97.


A water-based tile pen that makes deep cleaning grout feel like filling in the pages of an adult coloring book. Consider mold banished after a few swipes of this nontoxic formula, which releases anti-bacterial agents with each pass.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “These things are awesome! I cleaned my bathroom tile grout first because the lady who lived there before me really let it go. A few places stayed stained and I was worried it wouldn’t cover them, but all grout areas are bright white and look new after using this.” —Donna K Cook

Get it from Amazon for $8.99.


A Conair fabric defuzzer for removing accumulated lint and pilling, because no one has to know about the 250 times you washed and wore those Lululemon leggings. A few swipes of this = your most beloved wardrobe staples will look newly plucked from the racks of your favorite store.

Promising review: “I bought this on a whim in last attempts to save my favorite duvet cover. The pills had gotten to the point where it was seriously uncomfortable to sleep with them getting all up in my leg space. I thought I was going to have to get a new duvet cover entirely. 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.” —Dena Jensen

Bread Hair-Wash is *chef’s kiss* for curl types 3A–4C. It stimulates scalp health with sensitive-friendly ingredients like argan oil, aloe vera juice, and lemon tea tree oil for a squeaky clean that won’t dry out or tangle your tresses.

Get it from Bread for $20.


A Rain-X glass treatment for the rain, sleet, and snow that would otherwise collect on your car window and reduce visibility. This basically works to repel water and makes windshield wipers feel all but unnecessary.

Reviewer's car to show how one half of their windshield is clear, while the other untreated half is covered in raindrops


Promising review: “I had a cheap, untempered windshield which was awful in the rain. A friend of mine from college recommended Rain-X and I was shocked at the difference. I applied it with a soft rag and sat there wondering if it was even on properly. I trusted the system and then later that night took my car out for a drive; it rained while I was out and the difference was instantly noticeable. Before, when using my wipers, streaks would obscure my view so much that any lights would make driving in the rain hard. Now, the droplets don’t smear and smaller ones sometimes just roll off. It’s pretty great.” —Alison J. Gong

Get it from Amazon for $3.99.


A tiny knife sharpener since that knife of yours can barely slice through bread, let alone a steak. This features two sharpening options (coarse and fine), and is designed with a nonslip base to ensure that it stays put whilst in use.

Elizaebeth Lilly / BuzzFeed

Promising review: “Do you find yourself hating the knives you cut with? I certainly did. Always grumbling about not being able to cut a freakin’ bagel or tomato! Although, as they say, it’s often more difficult to cut something soft than it is something hard. In any case, do yourself a favor and get this very cheap sharpener. It works like a charm in a mere two or three swipes/pulls on the unit. Honestly, I can’t believe I never thought to have one on hand before. It should be a staple in every kitchen.” —Matt

An effective Safari comb for easily removing the gunk and fleas hitching a free ride on your pet! That’s right, my friends. The black debris in the below cup is all *clears throat* fleas.

Promising review: “This comb is awesome! Catches fleas so well! My kitties are so thankful. They don’t have enough to need meds, but they occasionally get a couple from their doggy brother who brings them inside and this helps me get rid of them so easily! It also helps comb out the loose under coat that they shed! Have a cup of soapy water and a towel to rinse the brush in. It kills the fleas and allows you to continuously brush until you’re done.

A watering funnel to make you feel old because plant funnels at 26 > beer funnels at 26. The amount of water that has pooled on my floor rather than into the roots of my ZZ… ridiculous, quite frankly! This is effective, takes up no extra space, and doesn’t look like an eyesore.

La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 Balm is a multi-purpose balm suitable for face, body, lips, and hands.

Not all heroes wear capes.

Promising review: “I had a terrible allergic reaction to tea tree oil about two weeks ago. Tiny bumps all over my face along with bunches of breakouts and my normally oily skin was so dry the strongest moisturizers I had wouldn’t keep it moisturized for long. I tried this stuff and OVERNIGHT basically all the bumps and my breakouts are gone. I have incredibly sensitive skin (clearly) and this stuff feels so soothing on my face and leaves it looking bright. I can’t speak more highly of this product. I will probably continue using it as a regular daily moisturizer even after my skin goes back to normal because it feels so smooth and I bet it would make a great base for makeup. HIGHLY recommend to anyone with sensitive, combination skin. And I’m acne-prone and this stuff doesn’t break me out. Holy grail people!” —SH
