A Milani primer capable of keeping you shadow and liner in tact all πŸ‘ day πŸ‘ long πŸ‘. That’s right, folks! No creasing, smudging, fallout, or crying under the watch of this vegan and cruelty-free must-have.


Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

Promising review: “This stuff is amazing! I have super duper oily skin…yes, even my eye lids. Generally, my eye makeup is MIA by mid-afternoon. I was stoked to discover my eyeshadow was still in tact and looking perfect after 10 long hours. Went to sleep, didn’t remove my eye makeup, and it was still there the next morning. Again…I love this stuff. Unbelievable product.” β€”Nikki Z

Promising review: “Are you kidding? Why didn’t I find this sooner? THIS STUFF IS AMAZING. I’m 34, and never had a blemish… until I hit 30. Hormonal cystic acne has plagued my chin and neck for years. I’ve tried everything from washes, scrubs, microdermabrasion, facials, masks, even antibiotics as a last resort. NOTHING cleared my skin like this! I’ve been using this product for only two weeks and my skin is clearing beautifully, plus my old acne scars disappearing. People are making comments about how fresh, young, and healthy my skin looks. Its a small tube, but you only need a pea-sized amount really.” β€”emhart16

A tiny knife sharpener because 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 non-slip base to ensure that it stays put whilst in use.


Elizaebeth Lilly / BuzzFeed

Promising review: “Do you find yourself hating the knifes 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.” β€”Matt

Soapstone stones to keep your whiskey on the rocks ice cold without any water dilution, which traditionally happens when one dumps ice cubes into their glass.


Amazon

All you’ll have to do is store these stones in the freezer, put ’em in the glass while sipping on a fantastic alcohol beverage, and that’s it! This will keep your drink cold without any condensation or melting ice.

Promising review: “I bought these as a gift for my roommate & we all love them! Since we don’t have an ice machine or ice trays, these stones are perfect! We use then for so many different things. Aside from drinks, we’ve used them as short-term ice packs to keep food cold and inside a cloth as an ice pack for injuries. I would recommend these stones to anyone!” β€”Edith

A Gumby dog toy guaranteed to make your four-legged best friend a very happy boy. Reviewers swear that their pets loves this chew toy an immeasurable amount!


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “Gumby has been in my home for about two weeks now. My dog grabbed Gumby out of my hand when I took it out of the box and it has become his new favorite toy. Everywhere that he goes in the house, Gumby is hanging out of his mouth. If he is laying down somewhere, Gumby isn’t far away. He treats this toy different than the other ones that I have purchased for him. It’s not a chew toy to him and he doesn’t throw it around. He just holds it in his mouth. All the time. It’s just odd but we are going with it because it seems to make him happy.” β€”Lanie

Promising review: “I bought this on a whim and I have no regrets! It smells delicious β€” like toasted almonds and almond cookies! I use the lip scrub before bed, and I could immediate tell the difference. My lips are smoother and softer, and my chapstick lasts much longer on my lips. I made my husband use it once, and his lips were also much smoother and super soft after just one use!” β€”Cowie

A grooming glove you can pet your pup or cat while also helping them get rid of the excess fur that would otherwise shed and be laid to rest all over your apartment. This glove even stimulates skin oils, promotes a softer and shinier coat, and can be thrown into the wash when it needs a deep clean itself.


amazon.com

Promising review: “This glove is perfect for our one kitty who hates to be brushed. Our family recently added kitty number three, a big beautiful long-haired Maine Coon who despises being brushed or bathed. It was such a struggle as fine cat hair started taking over our life. Honestly, I did not think this grooming glove would work, but let me just say it is wonderful. Our kitty just loves the feeling it gives him, and we love the astounding amount of hair that is now in the glove and not on every surface in our home. Thank you wonderful seller. We LOVE this glove.” β€”Colleen5991

A Lily England rose gold hair brush cleverly designed with an ergonomic handle (READ: no more tired wrists) and gentle flexible bristles that glide through any hair type whether wet or dry, ridding your mane of knots with no painful tugging necessary.


Amazon

Promising review: “Listen I don’t know who Lily England is, but that woman is a godsend! Being in the military also makes me plaster my hair to my head so trying to brush out my hair at the end of the day with all the product turns into another war in itself. For as long as I can remember, I have always used a normal brush. Oh my lawd, am I so thankful for this brush. The first time I used it, I decided to try after work. This thing literally told my hair that everything was going to be okay. I also used to make a rug on my floor with my hair, and I also could have made a scarf with the hair that was left on my regular brush after three days. Not this bad boy!!! Just buy it β€” it’s shiny and nice to your hair, head, and floor.” β€”Ashley

Bottle Bright cleaning tablets to quickly remove all that funky, gross, probably-starting-to-smell build-up in your favorite water bottle. These are biodegradable, chlorine-free, and require absolutely NO effort or scrubbing, but will make your water bottle look as if you’ve just brought it home from the store.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I seriously can’t believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug and I tried everything, but there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. It grossed me out so much that I bought ANOTHER HydroFlask to replace it. Now eventually they both got black inside, so I tried these little magic tablets. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY without any scrubbing necessary. They look brand new and there was no weird smell or taste afterward, either. Absolute magic!” β€”Amazon Customer

A flight flap that is deceivingly strong despite the fact that it’s as thin as a piece of paper. For the frequent flier, this easily molds into the seat in front of you or can remain upright on the tray table, holding everything from your Kindle to your iPhone perfectly in place.


amazon.com

Promising review: “This is the ultimate must-have for long plane rides. It’s moldable so you can literally make it fit ANYWHERE! It is also strong and when you’re done, you can easily just flatten it back out and toss it in your bag. It doesn’t weigh anything and it’s only about as thick as a thin piece of cardboard so it can live in a purse, backpack, or even be used as a big bookmark. I love this things. Now I just have to find out how many folds it’s good for!” β€”Kasey Cassone

Promising review: “I love this passport holder! It has room for my passport, driver’s license, three credit cards, several hundred dollars in cash (hidden from view in the side pocket adjacent to the passport pocket), and my boarding pass, with a separate pocket/space for each item.

amazon.com

Promising review: “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 8 hour work day right to the gym and sweat like crazy…and this stuff doesn’t budge! I love it!!” β€”Carrie E. Miller

A rosewater Mario Badescu facial spray with so many uses, it’s hard to keep track of ’em all! This can set and refresh makeup, give foundation a dewy appearance, add refreshing hydration to dull-looking skin, and help keep breakouts at bay. And the scent? Freakin’ divine.

This facial spray is packed with aloe, herbs, and rose water to give a glowy, dewy look that will make even a full face of foundation look au naturale.

Promising review: “”The redness on my cheeks has gone way down and I have a much more even complexion after just four days. I’ve been lightly spraying this on my face after cleansing with the Mario Badescu Rice Milk Carnation Cleanser and again first thing upon waking. It smells very nice and magically fixes skin problems β€” even my acne has cleared up! I’m very impressed.” β€”Terryoke

Promising review: “I have been told I cackle madly when using these. Where there used to be frustration and curse words there is now glee and sweet satisfaction. Scraping pans, tins, and tray sheets has become a peach since I bought these. Originally bought for my cast irons but the other cookware wanted in on that non-scratch, sweet sweet scrape action.” β€”Amazon Customer

An overflow drain cover for the Lush bath bomb aficionado who has yet to own a luxurious tub. You’ll get that clawfoot one day, but for now this cover will add extra inches of water to your soak.


Amazon

Promising review: “Can I give this thing 10 gold stars? I have a four-foot bathtub (so small it should be illegal) so I used to bring a towel in the tub to cover myself just to keep warm because the water was so shallow. I’ve used this drain cover three times and now I literally bask in my Epsom salt baths. The silence is wonderful; I used to seethe at hearing the precious bath water drip-drop down the overflow drain. Buy it, hands down a peace preserver.” β€”M. Smith

amazon.com, amazon.com

A twist-to-dispense click pen that will wipe away built-up gunk (a result of lotion, soap, etc.) to reveal a brighter, more breathtaking surface to all of their jewelry.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I worked in a fine jewelry store for several years that sold this product. I was always impressed with the instant shine the diamond stick provided! The brush tip is very helpful for getting under the stones and in the setting where gunk builds up, which reduces that brilliant shine. I recently got engaged and immediately purchased a diamond dazzle stick of my own. You simply brush, rinse, dry and go. I don’t feel this product replaces the need to professionally clean your jewelry every now and then, but it does help with the maintenance of that new, shiny sparkle.” β€”Amazon Customer

A clay bear they can place in everything from brown sugar and baked goods (to keep soft and maintain moisture) OR to spices and salts (to keep everything dry and crispy).


amazon.com

For brown sugar and baked goods, soak the clay bear in water first. For spices and salts? Keep the bear dry!

Promising review: “I couldn’t believe how well this item worked. A classic problem for bakers everywhere is hardened brown sugar when you pull it from the cupboard. Yes, there are hacks to soften it again, but wouldn’t it be great if it stayed the right consistency from the get-go? Enter the Brown Sugar Bear. As long as you’re keeping your sugar in an air-tight container, it will stay perfectly soft for weeks. I usually pull the bear out and re-soak the terra-cotta every two months or so, and have since gifted this item to family members.” β€”Courtney

A handheld milk frother that makes it easy to whip up your very own, typically very expensive drink at home. 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.


amazon.com, amazon.com

This frother has a ergonomic handle that makes it comfy to hold, is small enough to stash in your bag and bring to the office, and is battery-operated and comes equipped with two AA batteries.

Promising review: “This frother was such a great deal! It came with batteries installed and perfectly packaged. I just made my first coffee with frothed evaporated milk and a tiny bit of sugar for a holiday season treat and it tastes just as delicious as an expensive ubiquitous franchise coffee! If you’re considering a handy little kitchen gadget, I would definitely recommend this for yourself and it’s also a great stocking stuffer.” β€”R2

A NYX setting spray to finish off your complexion. Humidity, sweat, tears: it’s all irrelevant when you’ve topped your foundation with this magic stuff, which works to mattify makeup and prevent it from turning into a greasy mess.


Amazon

This spray has a matte formula, meaning it won’t turn your makeup into a greasy or oily mess.

Promising review: “This spray is everything! Like, oh my gosh. I notice the difference if I forget to spray this on. I’ve walked through the humid city of New Orleans in the middle of July and my makeup stayed on from the time I got to work and was mostly still there by the time I got home, which was nine hours later. I can’t rave enough about this, and I’m very picky when it comes to makeup.” β€”missyj95

This wall mount even contains a tiny magnet, meaning the cap won’t drop to the floor β€” it’ll stay right on the opener until you’re ready to throw it out!

A C.O. Bigelow night balm because beauty sleep is not a drill. This eight-hour recovery shea butter formula simply needs to be applied before hitting the hay β€” and by the time you’re pressing snooze on your iPhone alarm, your lips will be totally moisturized.


instagram.com / Via @cobigelow

Promising review: “My favorite lip balm! I’m currently on Accutane and this is the best lip balm I have tried for my dry, chapped lips! It has been a life saver during this treatment. It has a very thick consistency which helps it stay on longer and absorb slower, especially when applied overnight. It’s the only lip balm that keep my lips moisturized overnight so that they’re not peeling and cracking when I wake up in the morning.” β€”Sunny

A before-you-go Poo-Pourri toilet spray formulated with a concentrated blend of essential oils that will neutralize… funky bathroom odors. Yes, the kind that you cause. This is the kind of ~white elephant~ gift to give yourself that will truly be more useful than you realize.


Amazon

So how does this work? WELL! Before you go to do your business, spray this directly into the toilet bowl β€” this citrus scent, for example, will cover the surface of your toilet water natural essential oils and all smelly smells will be gone. Not to be dramatic, but this has the potential to save a marriage.

Promising review: “We are a family of six in a small one-bathroom house. This is, to put it lightly, a horrific nightmare β€” particularly after my teenage son spends some time in the bathroom. After a couple of weeks of gentle encouragement (‘YOU ARE KILLING EVERYONE. SPRAY THAT STUFF ON THE WATER BEFORE YOU POOP OR I’M TAKING AWAY YOUR PHONE AND, SO HELP ME GOD, I WILL CALL YOUR GIRLFRIEND AND TELL HER EXACTLY WHY YOU GOT IT TAKEN AWAY.’) he started using it regularly. The bathroom is much less disgusting after he leaves now.” β€”Supa D.

A scalp massager that will make you feel as if you’re getting a professional shampoo from the ritziest salon in town. This is designed to stimulate your scalp and improve circulation, which is said to lead to speedier hair growth. (This is especially great to know if you got a two-inch trim last year and SURPRISE it’s only grown one centimeter since.)


amazon.com

This nifty little silicone tool even increases the effectiveness of your shampoo to help clear away built-up product in your scalp that would (inevitably) lead to dullness and lack of body.

Promising review: “I have been using this for about three weeks now and I LOVE it. It feels amazing! I haven’t changed my shampoo or anything, but my hair definitely has more volume…like my roots are standing up or something! I don’t know exactly what is happening, but I am all for it.” β€”Lsn1986

A Hair Dance powder dry shampoo especially great at vacuuming up grease and adding body sans any leftover chalky white residue. Pro tip: Add some into your roots before bed, wake up with a completely refreshed scalp that looks like it was shampooed five minutes ago (…as opposed to five days ago).


amazon.com

This vegan and cruelty-free dry shampoo doesn’t contain any talc, parabens, or baking soda (hooray).

A personal note: As someone with thin, greasy, flat hair, I can confidently say that powder dry shampoos are so much better than aerosol ones. Like, they actually make your hair look freshly-washed.

Promising review: “My hair is ALWAYS oily at the roots and aerosol cans of dry shampoo make my hair stiff, but this stuff…this stuff is amazing! Adds volume, doesn’t completely dry out my hair, and does not leave residue or build- up (I have black hair so this is very important). Also, my hair smells super fresh after using it. Would give more stars if I could!” β€”Gabriela

A matte Maybelline SuperStay liquid lipstick you can apply right before boarding an international flight β€” and it will still look great when you wake up on another continent. This magic stuff has a staying power of up to 16 hours, which means it must be the byproduct of some sort of sorcery. I know.

While I am personally not a lipstick wearer whilst flying, this is the perfect product for anyone who feels naked when their lips aren’t drenched in pink or red.

Promising review: “I love this lipstick! I fell asleep with it on and it stayed on all night. Plus, it has amazing pigment and dries within about five minutes. As a busy mom, I probably won’t be trying out any other lipsticks for a while.” β€”A. Williamson

Promising review: “I’m in love with this! My entire family (with the exception of my husband, who doesn’t like spice) reaches for this bottle of Mike’s many times a week. We’ve tried it on biscuits, cornbread, fried chicken, bacon (AMAZING), and more. Mike’s offers just the right kick of heat to balance the delicious sweetness of the honey. I plan on keeping this in my pantry.” β€”MichiganTraveler

Hydrocolloid, tea tree, and calendula oil pimple patches you should slap on a zit to a) prevent picking, and b) speed up the ~draining~ process of said zit. Plus, these are transparent enough to wear while running errands without anyone in the world giving you a second glance.


amazon.com, amazon.com

I know, I know. You may feel robbed of the satisfying feeling that comes with popping a pimple, but this method is MUCH better because it won’t leave a scar. To quote the Beatles, just let it be.

Promising review: “I love these things! My acne-riddled, hormonal life is made easier by these beautiful little patches. The variety pack is best because the big squares can be cut to size, and boy do they stick! They do what they say. I’ve had cysts go down without popping. I’ve popped some (yes yes, I know, don’t pick, people!) and patched em, and it’ll drain. I’ve given them to friends who get cysts in the WORST places, and they always go down and definitely takes the edge off the pain overnight. If there’s a spot that’s weeping, stick one on there and it’ll put an end to that.” β€”Renee

Affresh dishwasher cleaning tablets because HOW can you get clean, glistening dishes if the dishwasher itself is *gag* covered in grime? Answer: You can’t. These babies are here to help.


amazon.com

Promising review: “Works extremely well. We haven’t done any cleaning on our dishwasher in five years, and the sliding dish trays were tough to pull out or push in, there was detergent build-up all over the inside, and there was a milky film on all our cups. I bought Affresh, ran the dishwasher with two tablets while it was empty, and the difference was astounding. There was still some build-up and I figured it would require another cycle, so I popped another two tablets in, ran the machine a second time, and now it looks and sounds brand new. No more film on the glasses, no more dirty dishes from clogged sprayers, no more odors.” β€”Martoune

A non-slip Kiss silicone mat with heat resistance of up to 480Β°F to house your hair tools whilst still burning hot. This has especially descended from the heavens for people who spend their day worried about whether or not they turned off the flat iron before heading out β€” even if you didn’t, this nifty hunk of silicone will prevent any disasters.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I’m that person who always forgets to turn off her flat iron in the morning and doesn’t remember until getting all the way out to the car. Then when I go back inside to turn it off (making myself late for work), 9 times out of 10 I find that I did turn it off but I had forgotten. To solve this problem, I purchased this mat along with an outlet timer (one that I can set to one hour). I turn on the flat iron at the outlet and rest it on the mat. Then, even if I forget to turn it off, the timer will turn off the outlet. And just in case, if something happens and the outlet doesn’t turn the flat iron off, the mat will protect the counter. (Don’t act like this is irrationalβ€”I’m sure that almost everyone who uses a flat iron on a regular basis worries about this!) If you would like to have peace of mind (and a better attendance record at work), I highly recommend this mat!” β€”Margaret Swan

There have been mornings when I think I’ve run out of the toothpaste and then am forced to have bad breath BUT! There is always some toothpaste left β€” you just have to squeeze it out.

Promising review: “This device is ingenious! Wished I’d known this product exist sooner. I use Arm & Hammer toothpaste which still comes in the standard small cap so having it prompt up behind the bathRoom cabinet was impossible. Now, problem solved. It’s a small invention that made a positive impact. I thank the person who thought of it.” β€”Jl33NYC

An O’Keeffe’s cream to give your dry, callused piggies an intense dose of moisture. I get it: Boots season is here, the need for a pedicure is gone, but this is the perfect way to give your feet some much-needed TLC.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I wouldn’t blame you if you threw up a little looking at the before and after pics. I’m originally from Miami so it’s almost 365 days of flip flops or open toe shoes. I’ve tried EVERY lotion and nothing worked until I came across this. From day one, this soothed my crackled heels (my heels were so badly cracked that it hurt to walk). Now I go to my yoga class barefoot without feeling embarrassed.” β€”MISS_305

A formaldehyde-free Zoya polish designed with a wider brush, meaning you can disperse more polish onto your nail with just πŸ‘ one πŸ‘ stroke πŸ‘. The brush also fans out a teeny bit, allowing for application onto the pesky corners of their nail.

Promising review: “Oh. My. Gosh. SO GORGEOUS! This is the most beautiful nail polish I’ve ever put on (I ordered the gold ‘Tomoko’ color), which looks luxurious and is great for the holiday season. Another added bonus is that it is very easy to apply and, if you are a beginner, this will work for you.” β€”Berlyn

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 one of your defining features. These slowly release micronutrients into soil for up to two months, thus allowing indoor plants to thrive.

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.” β€”GatorDO17

An adjustable duster brush great for air conditioners, fans, and window blinds β€” because YES, those need to be cleaned on occasion (the amount of dust that can accumulate there is *cough* wild).


Amazon, amazon.com

This handy dandy tool comes with five microfiber cloths, meaning you’ll be able to clean your whole darn house in one sweep.

Promising review: “This product is AMAZING! You can clean both sides of two blinds at once and grip them firmly to get ALL of the dust off. Plus, it comes with five covers, so that no matter how dirty your blinds are, you’ll be able to finish dusting your whole house! I also love that you can wash the covers and don’t have to waste money on refills.” β€”Sarah

A four-sided cleaning brush so you can give your favorite suede booties some serious TLC (and make them look brand spankin’ new). This magical tool allows scuff marks and salt stains to all but vanish into thin air.


amazon.com

This brush has a welt surface, nylon bristles, an arched half circle brush, and a protruding brush that lets you clean different kinds of suede.

Promising review: “BUY THIS THING! I got mud of my new suede boots and thought they were ruined, but this brush completely restored them. I was shocked. I even used it on an old pair of boots from college that I have considered ruined for several years now, and it did wonders on getting rid of the filth on top of the suede. This is absolutely worth getting!” β€”Gaby Scott
