Affresh dishwasher tablets that’ll remove odor-causing residue so your dishes actually come out clean. These trusty tablets can be tossed in the machine while it’s empty or full.
Five-star reviews: 1,700+
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 dishes just not getting clean. Then, I became aware that the water softener was no longer 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. 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 the instructions and ran the regular cycle. I did not expect the results I got! My 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 every month, as recommended. I can even put it on my subscribe and save order so I will get a new pack every six months. I am amazed!” — Sheila

Five-star reviews: 44,000+ (!!!!!!!)
Promising review: “I’ve now been using this sheet set (in white) for a few months. I’m still equally in love with them. There has been no pilling yet. They also wash nicely and dry quickly. They’re still super soft. I’m definitely sold and have been slowly replacing all the other sheet sets in my house with these.” — Heather B.

Five-star reviews: 3,300+

A blackhead remover kit to help you safely remove blackheads from your skin without spreading bacteria or causing unnecessary scarring. You’ll get five needles for different pimple sizes plus a case to store them in when you aren’t using them.
Five-star reviews: 1,600+
Promising review: “I have had blackheads on my nose since I can remember and they just keep getting bigger. I have tried the peeling masks, monthly facials, etc… but that wasn’t enough. I ordered this kit (along with a microdermabrasion one) to try and fight back… It gets EVERYTHING out and I don’t feel like I am damaging my skin. It’s very easy to use. I use this kit two to three times a week and have noticed a BIG difference in my pore size. I like to use this before I put on any skincare or makeup products. Just quickly get a few noticeable areas and then apply toner, lotion, and primer before makeup. After three months of use, I found this kit works MUCH better than the microdermabrasion tool I also ordered. These are just easier and quicker! A few times a week, I can quickly clean out my pores after washing my face. My pore size has noticeably shrunk.” — Sherri Lee
A microfiber mop and hands-free wringing bucket set so you can get your floors sparkling clean without burning out all the energy in your body and needing to pass out on the bed afterward. The mop is designed to help you get into corners easily and wring it by just pressing your foot to a pedal on the bucket.
You can also remove the mop head and it’s machine-washable but you might want to snag some back-ups (sold separately) so you can toss the dirty one into the washing machine, leave it for your laundry day, and still have your mop readily available.
Five-star reviews: 5,900+
Promising review: “I’m the queen of never mopping because I hate it more than anything else. I will literally only mop maybe once or twice a YEAR. A friend who is a house cleaner recommended I try the O-Cedar Easy Wring mop and bucket. I tried it for the first time today. It’s so easy to fill up, carry around with the handle, and wringing it out using the foot pedal is, dare I say, FUN!!! TIP: Hold the handle extremely lightly in your hand so the handle will spin when you wring. I like that I was able to wring more for a drier mop for my laminate and hardwood floors) and wring less for my linoleum and tile that needed a deeper clean. It’s easy to dump the water when done. I will definitely be using this mop more frequently than once a year!” — B. Nichols
Price (for Spin Mop system): $29.97
Price (for Spin Mop refills): $17.58 (available in a four-pack)
Dentist-approved mouthwash for when your breath is kicking on a more regular basis than you’d like. This product should kick the funk out so prepare to breathe a (pleasant-smelling) sigh of relief.
Five-star reviews: 3,000+
Promising review: “Why didn’t I find it before? It’s very embarrassing to admit but I had very stinky breath. It did smell like s..t and I tried many products that didn’t work. Just follow instructions and ‘deep throat’ gargle for 30 seconds or so for best results. I can say that my breath has improved by 50% which is a huge, huge difference. Morning breath is not as bad. I can talk to people with confidence and that’s all that counts. Thank you, Amazon!!!” — Shopper5
Price: $11.84+ (available in a pack of two or six)

Five-star reviews: 3,400+
Promising review: “I CAN’T BELIEVE ALL THE MONEY I SPENT on natural hair extensions until I got these ones. OMG, I’m so amazed by how natural they look. They are super voluminous and soft. I bought two since my hair is really short and I like to use a huge amount of hair. But even with one, you can rock lots of hairstyles. Thank you so much for this product!!!” — JE

Promising review: “Oh. My. God. Shut the front door and slap your grandma. Hold on tight because these jeans are gonna get you pregnant. I’m too hot, call the police AND the fireman… Now that the funny part of this review is over, shut up and buy these jeans. Buy ten pairs because Lord knows as soon as you find a pair of jeans you like you’ll never find them again. I am 4’11” tall, 173 pounds with 45-inch hips and a 33-inch waist (definitely pear-shaped), and I can never — I mean NEVER — find jeans that fit me. These are the right length. They fit my hips. They don’t gap at my waist. And this inner tummy slimming panel? Oh, sweet baby cheezus, YES. I have a two-year-old, an awesome mom pouch, and a healthy love of bread. These jeans make me look even better than I did before I grew another human being. I’m literally ditching every other pair of jeans I have and stocking my entire wardrobe with these.” — Heidi
Price: $23.33+ (available in sizes 2-20 and in four different colors)
Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara so you can get bold and beautiful lashes whenever you want — no falsies involved.
Five-star reviews: 2,900+
Promising review: “After using Lights, Camera, Lashes by Tarte Cosmetics for the past year, I got tired of breaking the bank over mascara. My sister suggested Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect and I IMMEDIATELY fell in love. It provides dramatic length and great volume. I can honestly say I can’t stop looking at my eyelashes in the mirror every single day because of how awesome they look. Also, it is very long-wearing. I go from an eight-hour workday right to the gym and sweat like crazy and this stuff doesn’t budge! I love it!!” — Carrie E. Miller
A temporary tooth replacement kit (YES!!!) in case you have an, um, accident and need a quick cosmetic fix before heading to an actual dentist. Just file this under the list of things you won’t really need until you REALLY need it. Each kit comes with step-by-step instructions, steel dental tools, and up to 200 polymer plastic beads that you can mold into about 10 completely natural-looking teeth.
Five-star reviews: 1,100+
Promising review: “This product is a lifesaver. I am getting my implant done in December. While waiting for my dentist appointment, I was using a dental flipper to cover up the gap in the top set of my teeth. One night in college, I had kind of a wild night and lost my dental flipper. I started to panic because I really needed this. I set up an appointment with my dentist to have a flipper made again but was told that this was going to set me back around $500. It makes no sense to spend so much money on something that I will only need until December. That’s when I decided to give this product a try and I have no regrets. The product is explained well and easy to use. I can also make spares in advance. No need to spend an exorbitant amount of money on a temporary flipper.” — Jibran Khan
A mildew-resistant antimicrobial shower curtain liner to keep all the funk and gunk away from your bathroom — like wayyy away.
This liner has five magnets at the bottom to hold it in place in your shower, 12 rust-proof metal grommets, and a reinforced header. It’s designed to be heavy-duty enough for use as a liner or as a single curtain.
Five-star reviews: 7,000+
Promising review: “Initially, I was not ecstatic when I opened the box. I guess I was expecting something more but it’s just a clear shower curtain, right? What’s so OMGIMSOEXCITED about a clear shower curtain? So, I hung it up and initially was going to get a decorative shower curtain for the outside of my tub and keep this on the inside. Well, let me tell you, I warmed up to this clear shower curtain lots! I actually love it so much that I am keeping it like this and not getting a decorative one! The clear shower curtain makes your bathroom look and feel bigger, and it’s great showering while being able to see out of the tub… It doesn’t get in my way because of the curve of the railing and it doesn’t hold or gather soap scum or any stains around the edges like I have seen some do. It is truly transparent and pretty! I am happy with the purchase and of course, at a great price.” — Maria
Price: $9.99 (available in three styles)
Radha Beauty Rosehip Oil to help diminish acne along with fine lines, stretch marks, and hyperpigmentation. Plus, it promotes nail health! (Um, it might even up your credit score based on this long list of improvements…?! Just kidding!).
Five-star reviews: 3,000+
Promising review: “This oil is amazing! It has evened out my skin tone, balanced my oily and dry patches, and cleared up blemishes all in only two weeks of use. This is the best my skin has ever looked. Everyone needs to use this oil! This has made such a difference with my skin that friends and coworkers are even noticing. I lather it on generously every night and again in the morning. The oil does have an orange color but once it is absorbed into the skin you can’t notice. My only complaint is that it has left a little orange stain behind on my pillowcases. But if that is what it takes for me to have beautiful skin, I can deal with it!” — Alyssa
Biotin shampoo that’s formulated to help people experiencing hair loss and is infused with jojoba oil which will help moisturize the scalp and prevent dandruff.
Also, if you’re wondering whether or not this shampoo will work for kinkier textures, then you’ll be happy to know that one
reviewer with a 4C curl pattern said this shampoo helped to restore her hair’s thickness after a Dominican blowout thinned her strands.
Five-star reviews: 2,200+
Promising review: “I love this shampoo! I had gastric sleeve surgery and my hair was very, very thin. I started taking biotin and switched to biotin shampoo as recommended by my doctor. It doesn’t make your hair grow by washing it but it makes your hair and roots stronger. And it worked. After using the whole bottle, my hair was stronger. I had a lot of new growth that was sticking around (the previous new growth fell out early on) and my hair was getting thicker. Eight months later, my hair is back to normal. It’s longer and thicker than ever. I still use it twice a week and love it! I’m not crazy about the way it smells but others love it when they smell my hair.” — Diane J. Huff
A light curtain that’ll give your room a cool, soft glow and an overall relaxing mood. The curtain is waterproof, has eight light settings controlled by a remote, and can be used indoors or outdoors.
By the way, lots of reviewers noted that these curtains can be a doozy to hang up by yourself because the lights get tangled but many shared a hack: Don’t untie the long lights from each other until you’ve already hung up the curtain.
Five-star reviews: 3,300+
Promising review: “I am so in love with these lights! They were so easy to put up (took me about five minutes). They add such beauty to my room. I am so happy with this purchase.” — Amazon Customer
Five-star reviews: 2,300+
Promising review: “Recently, my chiropractor told me I should sleep with a pillow between my legs to help with my hip and back pain. Using a normal pillow was okay, but I’d fight with the pillow all night and wake up with sweaty legs. I’ve been using this knee pillow for the last two weeks and it makes a WORLD of difference. It’s like it was created to fit perfectly between my knees but I’m sure it’ll fit perfectly in between your knees just as well. No more fights with my pillow and no more waking up with sweaty legs!” — Jake Johnson
Acne patches that’ll suck up all the gunk out of your pimples like a vacuum to give you a visible reduction in just a couple of hours. They’ll also keep you from picking your pimples to pieces so you have less scarring.
Five-star reviews: 2,300+
Promising review: “OH MY GOD! This product is a godsend seriously. I almost canceled a first date that I planned for tonight because I had a few huge pimples that popped up… These little patches worked their magic overnight!!!😱 I’m definitely rebuying these.” — Amazon Customer
Price: $8.50 (40 patches in a pack)
Schick Silk Touch-Up Dermaplaning Razors to snatch your eyebrows into the perfect arch with a simple flick of your wrists. Reviewers also used this to remove dead skin cells from their faces to make the smoothest canvas for makeup!
Five-star reviews: 1,500+
Promising review: “I had been getting a professional lip and chin waxing every three weeks for the past 10 or more years. I was VERY nervous about switching to shaving. After all, the idea has been indoctrinated that shaving will only make things worse. I did some research online and read over and over that shaving does not make hair get darker or grow faster… finally tried shaving and I love it. I still pluck stray hairs regularly (as I did with the waxing) and shave about every two weeks. I can determine when I need it and I don’t have to let the hair grow out to a certain length as I did with waxing. Saving money, saving time, and looking better more consistently. What’s not to like? One person mentioned cutting themselves. I have been careful, and have not had ANY problems. Happy I switched.” — Deb
Price: $4.99 (three in a pack)
Thayers Witchhazel Facial Toner that’ll tighten pores, clear up acne, manage oil production, reduce redness, and decrease inflammation. It’ll also maintain the proper pH balance of your skin which is responsible for making your other skincare products the most effective. Per the description and the reviews, this is the skin whipper upper your face may thank you for after just a few weeks of use.
Five-star reviews: 4,500+
Promising review: “This is the new holy grail of my skincare routine. I have extremely sensitive skin and this doesn’t burn my skin at all — not even around my mouth. It has significantly decreased my little whitehead breakouts and I have seen improvement in the blackheads on my nose as well. It doesn’t leave my skin feeling dry or tight but even after cleaning my face, I will still pull the cotton away with stuff on it when I use this. It’s rare that you find a product with good, natural ingredients that actually work.” — Nicole Pearson
Price: $7.51+ (available in three scents)
Baebody Under Eye Gel for decreasing dark circles and minimizing fine lines and wrinkles near the sensitive area around the eyes.
Five-star reviews: 8,800+
Promising review: “Give it time and use it religiously. This thing really works! I’m a mother of four in her thirties and I also nanny full time for three additional little ones. I’m always running on minimal to no sleep, don’t eat right, and am always on the go… This helped actually take away the dark circles I was spending so much money on expensive makeup to conceal (or try to anyway). They always would shine through until now!” — Savage
Stove crack covers so neat freaks can stop allowing crumbs that fall into that tiny black hole of a space drive them wild.
Five-star reviews: 2,500+
Promising review: “This stove counter gap cover is the best invention for the kitchen! They act as an extra buffer between your stove and the counter. No more messy spills down the side of the stove that you have to pull the entire stove out to clean up. The clean up of these is such a breeze. If anything does manage to slip under it, the length is long enough that you just have to lift up a corner and get the rest of that grease or dirt cleaned up. I often use these to hold my spoon instead of laying it on the counter because it provides a slip-resistant surface as well as easy cleanup! They match the stove great and blend in well. Mine seemed to look extra long and extended past the edge of the countertop but I don’t mind and they are easy to clip if you wish to trim them down. They lasted through all the cooking for about 20 people during Thanksgiving and Christmas without any wear and tear. I definitely recommend this to anyone looking to make clean up a tad easier.” — Nikki
Price: $9.95+ (available in a set of two; three colors and two length options)
An antibacterial tea tree oil body wash that’ll clear up skin issues including eczema flare-ups, tinea versicolor, ringworm, jock itch, toe fungus, body odor, and more! Numerous before-and-after photos prove this stuff can clear up everything short of your credit score.
Five-star reviews: 5,000+
Promising review: “It works on cystic acne and makes it DISAPPEAR! I apply this with a cotton swab directly onto my acne (in the morning under my makeup and at night before bed) and my acne literally goes away overnight! I have been searching for over a year for a way to make my hormonal cystic acne go away and this is it! It also works on toenail fungus. I put it on with a cotton swab every morning on top of and under my toenails. I let it sit there to dry while I get ready. I put on my socks, go about my day, and repeat the next day after my shower. I can put it on at night too but I rarely remember too, but it still works. This stuff is a miracle for me. I LOVE, LOVE this product and I am so glad I found it even if I am not using it as a body wash, which now I’m actually considering doing as it works for everything else. I’m SO glad I found this product!! CONS: NONE! Buy it!!” — Patti A.
Five-star reviews: 1,700+
Promising review: “I was hesitant at first to buy this iron. I thought only expensive ones were worth purchasing but I didn’t want to shell out another $150. I have long hair and my curls are usually gone by lunchtime. This little iron is light and easy to use but more importantly, the curl holds all day!” — Denise
Price: $15.53+ (available in four wand sizes)
A weighted blanket that reviewers say could help minimize tossing and turning during sleep. It’s filled with glass beads that make it temperature-controlled so you won’t overheat or freeze during the night. If you’re the type who loves a good snuggle, the weight will also be pretty helpful when it’s just you, yourself, and you chilling in bed.
The company also recommends that you grab the blanket that’s at least 10% of your body weight plus one to get the true impact of the weight. If it’s too wide, then the weight will actually just be absorbed by all the space on your bed.
Five-star reviews: 3,200+
Promising review: “The best way I can describe weighted blankets for those who have never had one before is that it’s like a grandmother’s old quilt that’s heavy from years of use and multiple retucking of cotton. So, if you miss that feeling, this is a good blanket to rekindle that for you… It came with its own bag and had a set of instructions to help identify the type of people it may be good for. I appreciate that it said things like ‘don’t throw it on someone, let them adjust’ or signifying how important it was to not cover someone’s face with it… The first night, I slept soundly. I didn’t even move around as much as I normally do. I have a Purple Mattress with two inches of the Purple material, so I expected to hopefully not be hot at all. Luckily, I didn’t feel hot or sweaty as I would expect, and the air seemed to flow fine underneath the blanket. There is minimal body heat, but I’ve had other blankets that make it feel like a sauna. This one (the cotton kind) did not. Overall, I noticed some improvement in my leg circulation (a definite plus) and I slept more soundly.” — Lmlewis717
Price: $57.90+ (available in weights ranging from 5 pounds to 30 pounds)
A Flexisnake to dig out all the hair that’s been having camp meetings in your drain. It’ll be a nasty process but you’ll be so happy when water’s back to running down your sink like a dream.
Five-star reviews: 1,800+
Promising review: “I was in denial about what was clogging my shower drain. Some idiot grouted the grate on top of the drain leaving me at a loss with figuring out how to unclog it. I’ve tried the pouring stuff down the drain, the hot water, and the leaving it overnight. I still got a shower-foot-bath until I found this. I worked up so much hair out of my drain. It’s almost embarrassing to admit. But this is awesome. I would recommend it to friends.” — Elisa
Price: $5.28+ (available in two colors)
A handheld milk frother that’ll give you perfect froth for all of your favorite coffee drinks right in the warm comforts of your home. Starbucks run for what?!
Five-star reviews: 6,800+
Promising review: “This has revolutionized my coffee routine and allows me to make lattes, like they do at Starbucks, at home. I have used it exclusively with plant-based milk (coconut, almond, etc.) and it perfectly froths non-dairy milks. I can’t tell you how much money I have saved not having to go to the coffee shop every time I want to have a delicious latte. It makes a beautiful, delicate foam that holds up for the whole cup of coffee. I love that there’s still foam even in the last sip. Also, you can use this for the fancy cold foam to have with iced coffee drinks. I love this device so much! I have recommended it to literally everyone I know and plan on purchasing another frother in the near future just so I can keep one at the office to make sure I never have to make coffee without it. I couldn’t go back to just coffee and cream after having tried the perfect lattes made by this.” — Lindsey Catherine
Price: $11.02 (available in three colors)
Wood polish and conditioner to resurrect even the most high-traffic wood surfaces in your house. One scroll through the before-and-after pictures for this product on Amazon and it’ll be very clear why it has so many five-star reviews.
Sigh. Am I the only one who finds before-and-after photos like this so freakishly satisfying?! ALSO, if your wood issues are a tad more serious, you may want to try their other (also with over 1,000 reviews!) product called
Restore-A-Finish since it works harder on scratches and marks that are tougher to remove. The two products are made to be used together.
Five-star reviews: 3,300+
Promising review: “OMG! This is the most AMAZING product! We inherited some antique furniture from the ’30s that had been in storage forever… It was dry and dirty and not much to look at. I used this product on it and the oak wood literally came alive showing the beautiful grain and texture of the wood. I have since used it on my oak kitchen cabinets and they look AMAZING! I will never use anything else other than this product on my wood surfaces! No greasy feel… fantastic smell!” — Tiffany Sadowski
Price (for the wood polish): $8.48
Price (for Restore-A-Finish): $10.99

Five-star reviews: 4,300+
Promising review: “So I have a testimony. Royalty is the most tender-headed kid in the world. She would cry before you even touched her head. Professionals gave up on doing her hair. I got frustrated because I can’t do hair to save my life but I found this detangling brush on Amazon. I thought it wouldn’t work for black people with kinky, thick hair but I tried so many other things so why not try this one? And boy I tell you, I was able to comb through Royalty’s whole head without her shedding one tear. Right!! Even Royalty couldn’t believe she didn’t cry. I recommend everyone who has a child or even for your hair to buy Crave Naturals detangling brush… It works. It works. It works wonders.” — TaReese Womack
A classic fedora hat to upgrade your wardrobe, keep your head warm, and have a go-to for bad hair days.
Five-star reviews: 1,100+
Promising review: “Love this piece! It’s perfect for any outfit and any weather. I get so many compliments on this hat as well. It’s not too big nor is it overwhelming. It’s bigger than your normal sporty beach hat but smaller than, say, a giant sun hat. The color and quality are on point and it just really completes your outfits. The buckle is on very well and you don’t see any of the edges or the stitches coming undone. This hat is a def keeper. It’s great for any event. It makes you look cool and stylish without going overboard.” — Kim
Price: $16.45 (available in 16 colors)
Five-star reviews: 2,000+
Promising review: “Holy wow! My package was delivered and I immediately opened it to use the Dazzle Stick. I knew my diamond engagement ring was dirty but it was really DIRTY! I read the instructions just to make sure it was completely idiot-proof, which it is, and went to town. It only took about three scrub/rinses to take my ring from dull and gray to super sparkly and crisp. I didn’t realize how much fire my diamond had lost! Overall, the stick was super easy and super effective. It really gets into the setting and scrubs all the grim away with no residue. I have the other jewelry cleaner in the big red cup with the liquid and small brush and this beats it HANDS DOWN, without a doubt! This is my new go-to to clean my diamonds.” — Keagan Cox
