Promising review: “I have very hard water that leaves hard-water buildup and nasty stains. It’s embarrassing to have guests over because the toilets are so gross! I have tried so many products and cleaning solutions — from natural essential oils to harsh chemicals so strong I was lightheaded for the rest of the day. Well, I tried out this pumice stone after reading about it in a BuzzFeed article, and honestly the hype is real! It does take some elbow grease, but the after picture is from only 20 minutes of scrubbing, light enough that I didn’t break a sweat! The stone does get used up, but I think this one should last me a couple years at least. So if you have embarrassing toilets, try this!” —Stephanie Ray
Promising review: “I honestly only bought this product because of the money-back guarantee, thinking that there was no way anything would rid me of the hard water stains on the glass shower doors that I inherited from a former tenant. I had tried lemon juice, vinegar, baking soda, toilet bowl cleaner, a headlight-cleaning kit and even a professional strength cleaning acid, combined with hours of scrubbing by hand and finally with an oscillating scrub attachment for my power drill. I’m not saying that this product works quickly, but that fact that it works at all has me overjoyed! After an hour of using my oscillating scrub attachment, I have completely cleared away a chunk of the stains on the door, which honestly I did not think was possible before today. I am so relieved that I will soon be rid of these embarrassing stains. Very happy with this product and can’t wait to tackle the rest of the shower!” —Emmy
Promising review: “You guys. I’m embarrassed to even show you this. The grout around our tub was DISGUSTING. It was never caulked right and it got gross very quickly. I would scrub. The cleaning lady would scrub. It would get worse. Well, I came across this in a BuzzFeed lists, and this stuff made me curious. I don’t know why it doesn’t have 10,000 good reviews. Seriously. All I did was squeeze it on and walk away. I let it sit overnight. Check this out. Buy it. Like today.” —KarynB
Promising review: “Bought these storage bags two weeks ago to pack my winter clothes for summer, and they did the job perfectly. They are large and sturdy. I like its five-hook design. I can store five women’s jackets or four big men’s jackets in ONE bag. The long bags also fit my dresses. The biggest reason I bought these bags is that I do not need to fold my seasonal clothes; just hang, zip, vacuum, done! Super convenient. Extremely happy with this space bags. I will definitely order more!” —Jia Yan
Promising review: “I used to drop my rings in a bit of watered down Windex, let them soak, then scrub with a soft toothbrush, rinse, and dry. That process took about 15 minutes, and even then my rings, and particularly the stones, were not flawless looking afterwards. I thought it did the job. ENTER DIAMOND DAZZLE STICK! I bought this after reading a BuzzFeed list and now I literally I sound like an infomercial talking about this thing. It’s incredible. First you dispense a little product, and you don’t even have to take your ring off!!! Then you scrub for approximately three seconds, rinse, and BAM!!!! Holy sparkles, Batman. My precious stones have never looked better. Even rings that looked pretty good before, I couldn’t believe how sparkly they were after this. Consider me a lifetime customer.” —Amazon Customer
Promising review: “WOW were we impressed! On two occasions over the last three months, our sweet dog ate grass outside and then proceeded to vomit in two different locations on relatively new carpet. We cleaned the best we could but two dark round spots remained. We tried the standard carpet sprays to no avail (actually seemed to make them worst). The spots were embarrassing to see, but decided to wait until holiday traffic was over before scheduling full carpet clean. As soon as these arrived, we put them on spots (yes, I know you are supposed to test), stomped on them and set the timer. Lifted the pads in 30 minutes and the whole stains had transferred to the pads, carpet looked clean as can be. Highly recommend for any dog owner with a dog who isn’t trained to vomit outside.” —Eileen Marie
Promising review: “I ordered this set to continue on the road to an organized pantry. There are enough containers and enough variety of sizes to make me happy. I have stored pastas and noodles, dried beans, rice, sugar, instant mashed potatoes, crackers, etc. When I open a box of something, I put whatever is unused into one of the containers and feel very secure that the contents will be fresh and protected from any possible insect problem.” —R M
Promising review: “I have really sensitive teeth and this pen is wonderful. My teeth are not hyper sensitive after using this and the results come fast. There is no way I am going back to those strips and trays. I can tell that I will never use another teeth whitening product again” —Jacqueline Kress
Promising review: “I could not get my flatware to come out clean from the dishwasher and I wondered if it was the hard water. I was using up to three soap blocks in each load with only partial improvement. I used this the first time and voilà! Perfectly clean flatware for the first time. I LOVE this!” —Susan A
Promising review: “Our dog HATES getting her nails done, and I got sick of paying someone every few weeks to do them. We’ve tried clippers and other file systems, but have had very limited success. This has already paid for itself by avoiding three trips to the doggy salon now. It’s easy to set up, charges quickly, is easy to hold, and works fast. Other trimmers have taken forever to make almost no noticeable difference in her nails, but this is fast and strong enough to allow me to hit each nail for just a few seconds and be done. We are both extremely grateful!” —Elisa Spicer
Promising review: “I’ve tried everything that’s available over the counter: Head and Shoulders, Selsun Blue, Dove Antidandruff, Neutrogena, etc. Some were okay, some worked temporarily. This is THE first shampoo that has finally taken care of my dandruff and itchy scalp. I’m on my second bottle. After the first wash, the itching subsided but I would get itchy after two days or if I used a different shampoo. Now, I alternate using a conditioning shampoo and this shampoo and I don’t have any problems. It does dry out your hair, so I would definitely use moisturizing conditioner. I haven’t seen any flakes in weeks. Very, very satisfied!” —Lani Spice
Promising review: “I have tried many of the acne patches that are becoming increasingly popular. This is by far the best brand I have tried. There is a good variety of sizes in this packet. I wash my face in the evening and apply a patch. In the morning, the patch is clearly filled and the size of the pimple has significantly reduced and redness is gone. It is honestly a lifesaver and it is an absolute steal for the price!” —Brankica Cosic
Our in-depth review of Avarelle’s acne patches gets into the nitty-gritty — why they work, how to use them, and why 4,000+ people can’t stop raving about them.
Promising review: “This stuff is AMAZING!!!!!! It is completely worth the price. You will be AMAZED at how fast it works and how efficiently too. I admit, I was a little skeptical, even with other users posting pictures. For me, it was a try it to believe it. I did and I totally do. It works so well that it has made one of my tea tumblers look better than when I bought it. I would highly recommend this product!” —T. V. Henson
Promising review: “This magic little gizmo does exactly what the product info says it will do. It is fast, easy, safe, and super easy to clean up. Dice a whole onion in literally seven seconds. Just rinse with soap and warm water. Done. I’ve diced onions of all sorts, cucumbers, bell peppers, carrots, celery, firm tomatoes, olives, potatoes, hard boiled eggs, and even bread for bread crumbs. You won’t regret this purchase. First time a family member sees you using it, he/she will probably double over laughing, as it is quite an unusual looking thing.” —Ava
Promising review: “I love it! Has cleared up my bumpy skin and minimized my pores. However you need to start slowly — once a week or less until you get used to it. I now use it every morning and my skin is looking great. Really love it!” —Maisie
Promising review: “Works as incredibly as the reviews said! Super fast, no strong smelly chemicals, amazing results!” —Michelle Behnken
Promising review: “Convenient, easy, quick way to keep the dishwasher fresh and working at peak.” —Amazon Customer
Promising review: “I have thrown away so many of my favorite tops over the years because I could not get all the fuzzies off them. I tried this thing on one of my favorite shirts this morning and OMG it really works! It is easy to put the batteries in. I was able to operate it without even having to look at the instructions. I wish I bought this sooner. Off I go to mourn the loss of all my old favorite tops that this little gadget could have fixed!” —HD
Promising review: “These work great! They work so well I installed them and forgot them. My bureau is pretty deep and my clothes would all fall on top of each other and become a big mess. Now I’m pretty organized with my T-shirts.” —Pathfndr
Promising review: “Absolutely the best product. It saved my itchy goldendoodle! We tried changing food, Benadryl, medicated shampoo, fish oil, everything you can imagine… nothing worked long-term. He was itching his face so badly he would make himself bleed. Had sores and scabs all over his face and neck. I bought these because they had good reviews and I was desperate. It changed his life! He no longer scratches AT ALL! His coat looks great and all of his sores are healed. He’s the happiest he’s been which makes me a very happy momma. He is also very picky and never eats treats… he eats these every time so that’s an added bonus!” —Darcie Nation
Promising review: “We just moved from a two-bed to a one-bed and are trying to squeeze everything in. Anxiety is at a full-time high with all the clutter but this product helped us organize our closet while freeing up hanging space! No more random hangers here, there, and everywhere, tangled up and cluttering a room. It was SO simple to assemble. Took me maybe five minutes (tops).” —Amazon Customer
I went from very dark brown/almost black Asian hair to platinum blonde, a color I’ve maintained for almost four years. I truly believe the only reason I still have hair on my head is because 1. my colorist is amazing and 2. Olaplex. Despite having pretty strong hair, I remember globs of it breaking off in the shower right after I bleached my mane. In a panic, I bought a bottle of Olaplex and my hair has been thanking me ever since. I hate how expensive a single small bottle is, but I truly can’t be without this. It’s reduced breakage and brittleness, minimized frizziness, and just generally helped my hair look healthy.
My colleague (pictured above) also swears by this stuff. Check out her Olaplex review here for more deets and some before and afters that’ll make you buy this in bulk.
Promising review: “This stuff is AMAZING. We did have to put elbow grease in it and also use a pot scrubber but boy oh boy. This stuff. Immediately starts loosening up the gunk as soon as you spray. Definitely worth the money.” —CandyCurlz
Promising review: “I had a few scratches on my dark gray Tundra and it worked really well. Nothing else I have tried even came close. Great product!” —Chris
Promising review: “I was initially skeptical of how well this kit would work (I mean, it was only $20!) and I wasn’t sure if the foggy-ness on my headlights was inside the lens or on the outside. But after seeing it for myself, I am now a believer! Seriously though, for $20, it makes it look like you basically have a brand new pair of lights! It is *so* worth the purchase. I’d highly recommend it, and whenever it wears off, I will certainly be purchasing another kit and doing this again.” —Kysondra
Promising review: “My dog’s molars were turning black and he had a ton of buildup on his canines, and his gums were beginning to look inflamed. And, of course, his breath could kill a horse. After one week of constant use (a cap full for every bowl of water) you could see an obvious difference in tooth color. I was blown away. (Why can’t human mouthwash do such a good job on our teeth?) After three weeks, his molars were almost completely clean. After a couple of months of use, the plaque on his canines was soft enough to brush some of it off, which was totally impossible before. Plaque covered the canine approximately 70%. Obviously that’s no longer the case. IDK what insane solvent this is made of, but it keeps his gross mouth clean as a whistle. Now I don’t have to worry about my picky priceless mutt losing his teeth because he can’t be bothered to chew anything.” —BaconPancakes
Promising review: “This is the second review I’ve done on Amazon. I rarely go out of my way to write a review unless I’m truly amazed by the product. I have terrible sunken-in eyes (due to genetics) that can’t really be fixed without fillers (which I’d never do). No matter how much sleep I get, I have bad dark circles, so I decided that I had to invest in an eye cream. I’m so glad I did! I used a cheap drug store eye cream that really only made it look like I had water under my eyes and it did nothing else. This eye cream is so hydrating and smooth! It really evens out my skin tone and wakes up my face in the morning! I feel so refreshed and dare I say…prettier. It’s boosted my confidence a ton. I’m so happy with this product!” —casie ackerman
Promising review: “This product is amazing. I’ve always had acrylic or dipped nails because my real nails have always been brittle and always break and peel. I decided to give my nails a break and wanted to try and grow them out. I can’t even believe the outcome! They are stronger than ever and growing! I really wish I had taken a before pic to show the difference!” —JOE D.
Promising review: “I would show the stuff that came out of my nose if I wasn’t so embarrassed! It really works! I usually use the Biore strips but those can cost a lot since they’re disposable. This is a greener choice that’s also effective!” —Sergio Madero
Promising review: “I was originally spending a lot more for a Kiehl’s pore-tightening and face-brightening serum. When I heard from a friend about this serum, I was doubtful it would be effective, but I WAS BLOWN AWAY by the results even within two weeks! I have been using this vitamin C serum and I have seen unbelievable results! I really can’t believe it! My pores are a lot tighter and my major dark sun spot has faded. I will be reordering it and I have recommended it to many friends.” —Annalyssa Lee
Promising review: “I live alone and therefore have a lot of trouble getting fresh vegetables to last long enough for me to eat them up. I was throwing away a lot. I had to quit eating salads at home. But these containers have saved the day. They really work to keep veggies such as spinach and baby kale much longer. I’ve had cherry tomatoes sitting on my counter in the smaller container for about two weeks and they are just fine! I’ve been eating them slowly and they are almost gone but still fresh looking.” —Shakti
Promising review: “I’m not someone who publicly reviews products but this mask really deserved to take a moment of my time! As a 58-year-old, my skin is still prone to breakouts, especially around my chin and forehead and I have tried many masks, creams and cleansers to reduce this problem. At the same time, I don’t have oily skin so I was a little worried this mask would dry my skin out. Not only did this reduce red spots, not dry my face out and make my skin glow, it has had lasting results! I have been using it once a week and my breakouts are almost ZERO. Nothing else has worked so quickly and effectively and I am now a believer.” —swedishspeed
This portable carpet cleaner will spray, brush, and suction up any stain, no adult supervision needed. It also comes with a hose and tool attachment if you’d prefer a more hands-on cleaning session.
Promising review: “I have two cats (ages 16 and 8), one dog, a 5-year-old kid, and several other dogs on occasion (I pet sit and board dogs). I have needed to rent a carpet cleaner at least twice a year since I can remember. No longer! The SpotBot has revolutionized cleaning in our household. It is ridiculously easy and fast! The best part is that I barely have to touch anything gross anymore. I always pick up the larger chunks first, but I let the SpotBot do the rest and all I have to do is follow-it up with a good dump and rinse. A single spot takes less than five minutes to clean depending on the setting used and your competency (again, super easy to set up and use). I’ve had good experience on the stairs and the upholstery using the wand as well.” —Rainbow Chicken
