Promising review: “I was looking for macrame plant hangers in 30” and with a little design but not too much. These were perfect and I have them hanging plants above my kitchen sink. Strong enough and well made.” —NanaofNC
Promising review: “Probably the coolest holder I have ever seen. Bought it for my wife and she loves it and thinks it’s cute. I laugh when I look at it, just cool as all! Hangs on all of our pots and pans, stays cool. Easy to clean and looks awesome. Great addition to any kitchen. Works great, does exactly what it is intended to do!” —Logan E.
Promising review: “So my husband and I are gamers and we needed a better solution to our headphones to keep them from breaking, this was our answer. Not only will it hold our headphones it will also hold an Xbox One controller which is even more perfect. It’s very sturdy and feels very well made. Its grip is strong and can accommodate multiple different tables. The bottom hook also turns around so you can hide it under the tables when it’s not in use! This also held my purse which is probably around 10 lbs. I’ll probably end up ordering more in the near future for gifts and myself!! Highly recommend.” —Amber
I have one of these bad boys and it has honestly been a game changer. When I posted on my Instagram that I had received one, the responses I got were WILD. People are PASSIONATE about this gadget and now I understand why. I’ve used it on the arches of my feet and have way less pain than ever before. The nozzle at the end contracts at a high speed (think, a tiny punching machine) that surprisingly doesn’t hurt but leaves your body buzzing in a good way. At this point I’ve gotten one for my sister, my parents, and my in-laws who are all in love with this gadget.
Don’t be intimidated by its appearance. It’s simple to use and extremely effective. It feels similar to managing a hand mixer — weird, but true. In my opinion, it’s worth the money and it actually does work.
Promising review: “I received a Mini as a gift from my daughter last Christmas and LOVE it. It helps my sore muscles, aches, and pain a great deal. It’s small, lightweight and not noisy, I take it every where I go. Bought one recently as a gift to my brother for his birthday so we can spread the love and help his aching body.” —Po W.
Promising review: “I absolutely love this cleansing balm! It melts away even the most stubborn waterproof mascara with zero tugging or residue left behind. Just amazing!!” —Y_ELLE55
This lil’ gadget is compatible with phones, tablets, and the Nintendo Switch. So, no matter how you choose to relax after a busy day, it’ll support you!
Promising review: “This is exactly what I was looking for. I had been wanting to play my Nintendo Switch in bed without having to hold up the entire console. This mount allows me to have the screen hover above my head while my arms and neck can relax. This is the ultimate in laziness and I love it. :)” —Michael K.
I have one of these and it’s my favorite thing to unwind with at the end of the day. I have an anxiety disorder and can often find myself feeling really worked up and typically have physical symptoms like feeling restless. The weight of this blanket helps me to soothe my body and loosen up a bit.
Promising review: “This blanket is great. The material is soft and comfortable. The weight is perfect. What I love the most is that there are no beads used for the weight. I had a previous weighted blanket that the beads came loose after just a few weeks making the blanket useless. This blanket makes you feel like you are wrapped in a soft hug. I sleep so much better and do not wake up as often. I highly recommend this blanket.” —Jennifer M.
Get it from Bearaby for $249 (available in 15, 20, or 25 pounds and eight colors).
Billie is a fantastic subscription service that lets you choose how often you need your razor refills, then delivers them right to your doorstep. I remember the first time I tried my first Billie razor and, OMG, my legs had never been smoother. The razor continues to leave my legs feeling that way time after time. My coworker Rachel Dunkel is also a BIG fan of Billie razors and their other products. Here’s what she had to say:
“For the last five years or so, I haven’t cared that much about shaving. I’d let my legs and pits grow into a (beautiful!) forest, but whenever I craved a nice, smooth shave and picked up a razor from the drugstore, I’d end up disappointed. Even with more expensive razor brands, I’d still be prickly and end up regretting ever shaving in the first place. I have never, ever had that problem with Billie. Ever since trying their razors and shave cream, I’ve actually *wanted* to keep up with shaving. You get a ridiculously smooth result on the first go, even if your hair is super grown out. But most importantly, it STAYS that way for way longer than with other brands. With Billie, it actually feels worth the time and money to shave, something that I could never say about any other razor.”
Promising review: “Bought this for my 6-year-old’s room makeover. She loves it and curls up in it most days. She piles in the pillows and blankets to make the ropes cozy. I had my dad, who built houses for a living, install it for me to make sure it was secure but I think as long as you use a stud finder and have a good screw driver, anyone can do this.” —KrisSquared
This product includes a blend of three acid groups: Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA), and Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA). It is also hypoallergenic, dermatologist-tested, paraben-free, and approve for all skin types. And check out our deep dive on Glossier’s Solution here!
Promising review: “I absolutely love this! I’ve wanted to try it for the longest time after seeing what it did to a friend’s acne. I’ve only been using it for a week, but I’m already blown away by the results. I use it at night and when I wake up in the morning my normally oily and red skin is smooth and even, and any pimples from the night before are just gone. I can’t recommend this product enough this is a must-have!” —Katie
Promising review: “Finished using it five minutes ago and it’s the best! My husband uses a Stanley thermos daily to take coffee to work. He tries to remember to rinse it out every day, but that doesn’t always happen. I got the package today, filled the thermos with water, dropped in a tablet, and let it sit. I promptly forgot about it for a few hours. Initially, I was disappointed when I dumped the water, as it was barely tinged brown. Then I put fresh water in, covered the top, shook it, and OMG. The crap that came out was disgusting, yet fascinating. I looked in the thermos and saw almost nothing but sparkly silver! There was a little crud left in the top third of the thermos, but it’s a really tall one, so I wasn’t surprised. Got the bottle brush, swished twice, and bam! All clean! No fumes, no smell, no nothing, just clean. I used to struggle cleaning it with baking soda, vinegar, the brush, soap, and elbow grease. Screw that. I will forever use only these tablets! Here’s to better tasting (and way less gross) coffee!” —BranchingOut
Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $8+ (available in packs of 12 or 36).
I invested in one of these this year and I’m so glad I did — I use it to make lattes at home and have saved a lot of dollars without having to run out to Starbucks every morning (just…once a week or so instead hehe).
Promising review: “OMG, this milk frother makes my homemade latte taste like it was made by a barista. It was perfect. So perfect that I bought a second one for my brother who loves coffee to use. I’ve already recommended it to some coworkers. It has changed my coffee drinking life. This comes highly recommended.” —Michelle Pirestani
“It’s been a few years since I first experienced the powerful-but-lovely waft of a Pet House candle and back then I had a dog roommate (who’s quite slobbery). But even a few years later living solo, sans pets, I burn them quite often. They’re amazing at quickly canceling out my downstairs neighbor’s nightly weed smells (to each their own, buddy) and basically any cooking smell on earth, including onions, Brussels sprouts, garlic, and more. My kitchen is *right* by my closet so canceling out weird food smells is vital. These will forever be my GOAT candle and there are so many scents to keep some variety going.”
I have these in pink and typically use them to scrub my bath tub (which is VERY deep) more easily. They’re very sturdy and rinse off easily.
Promising review: “These gloves make cleaning and washing dishes much easier and more efficient. They foam up quite well and scrub dishes just as well as any sponges. They’ll save me a lot from buying sponges. The silicone is nice and thick, and the bristles are nicely compact and scrub well. Definitely worth the price.” —Joseph Ho
Promising review: “I bought very expensive leather boots over four years ago. Of course, with time, the daily winter wear has started to take a toll…scuffing, scratches, discoloration. I bought this product because I remembered that my grandfather used to use this brand to weather-proof his leather products years ago. I’m not disappointed at all. I will most definitely stick to this product for years to come. I used leather cleaner to clean my boots and then used this mink oil (two layers) to hydrate them. They are BEAUTIFUL! They look as if I just bought them. So happy!” —Amazon Customer
These vegan and cruelty-free patches come in two different sizes, so you can count on them to cover an array of different types and sizes of pimples. It blends it *so* seamlessly — I know this because I tried it out myself! I have relatively sensitive skin and these didn’t bother me at all. I was amazed by how much the little patch absorbed. I left it on over night and the next morning my pimple had very little redness and was much flatter than before using the patch.
Promising review: “I am really incredibly impressed with these. I have not had any problem with them sticking on overnight. They do a great job with the really deep acne that normally causes me problems for a week. Drained one in an hour! They are also very clear. Impressed! Especially for the price.” —Michelle
Promising review: “Buying this knife sharpener has changed my life! I used to burn water, but now I’m on par with chefs like Gordon Ramsay! My knives are so sharp that I could cut off a finger and would not even notice. Paper thin tomatoes and onions for a tuna fish sandwich? Not a problem! Thank you KitchenIQ, my life will never be the same.” —J.W.
“Believe the hype: this magic bottle is proof that not all heroes wear capes. The creamy formula, which comes in blond, black, clear, and brown (which is what I used!), goes on smoothly and doesn’t require a lot of product to do the job. I used the wand to brush baby hairs in the beginning/middle of my brow upwards, and then brushed the longer, toddler-like hairs at the end of my eyebrows, sideways. And one coat was more than enough! Boy Brow does what exactly what the Glossier brand claims to do; it gives me a filled-in eyebrow that doesn’t look filled in. The finish looks natural, which is exactly what I wanted — my facial caterpillars have never looked better.”
Promising review: “These are the only pads I use for my pots and pans. They will not scratch your cookware or bakeware. I have used them for over 30 years and I love them. Don’t use off-brand as they are not the same.” —MerryChristmas
Promising review: “The adhesive is VERY strong, adheres to my desk perfectly. I figured it could eventually weaken due to the pop-out action; however, that was not the case still as sturdy as the day I got it. I love it, and I recommend it to anyone who needs a small drawer to keep pens and small desk items in.” —Niko
Promising review: “Works well for shredding larger portions of meat, like pork. Plastic appears to be of higher quality. Sufficient room in the opening for most finger and hand sizes. The pointed tips shouldn’t cause injury unless you’re careless. I’d highly recommend the use of quality protective gloves; you’re not only dealing with the mess of shredding itself but also, most likely, some elevated temperature food.” —Legardi11
Promising review: “I love this meal planner and shopping list! In my house, it was constantly ‘what do you want to eat,’ ‘what do we have,’ blah blah, etc. Now, I can lay out the week’s meals and get my shopping list prepared so I make sure I don’t miss anything at the grocery store. The magnet on the back is strong and holds it to the fridge perfectly, even with the door opening and closing constantly. The perforation is good and doesn’t stray off into the paper like some cheaper papers do. Will be buying again when my current one gets low.” —Haley
Promising review: “The photos speak for themselves. When we bought our home there was no water softener and years of iron buildup. We tried so many things on our shower. Nothing worked. We were convinced we’d be stuck until we renovated the bathroom. The Iron Out worked wonders. I still can’t believe it. We had to let it sit for about an hour. It then dissolved and wiped right off. Definitely use in a ventilated area if possible.” —M. Gilardi
I have one of these bad boys and they even take off Kylie Lip Kits — a true feat.
Promising review: “YESS!!! I cannot LIVE without this product. I have always had pretty bad acne and every product I’d use would result in either a breakout or just constant irritation. This product can be used with JUST WATER to get literally all of your makeup off with zero skin irritations! I use it in the a.m. and p.m. and one rag will usually last me a full seven days before needing a wash. I have about three or four of these because I cannot live without them. My acne has become a lot better by using this as opposed to cleaners and crazy products for my skin. Who knew a clean rag and water could actually do so much?!?” —Nina Aristo
I personally have Mary Jo and can attest to the fact that it’s a PERFECT red lip with an everlasting formula you won’t need to reapply all day.
Promising review: “I went to a wedding, left the hotel at 3 p.m. with lipstick on and in my purse for touch-ups. I didn’t need to take it out once. Lips looked just as good at the end of the night as they did when I left the hotel. Everyone was so impressed with how clean my wine glass was with my bold-red lip! The best part is, going to bed at night, it came off easy with a makeup wipe. No red stains or marks at breakfast the next morning.” —Mutts B.
Get the red Mary Jo K lip kit from Kylie Cosmetics for $29 (check out other lip kit colors here).
This seemingly average little cleaning pen is filled with a high-performance formula that cleans jewelry like nothing I’ve ever experienced. It contains micro-fine cleansers, polishing agents, and a polymer that will make your gems so shiny they’ll nearly blind you. I’ve used it on my diamond rings, but it also works wonders on my cubic zirconia earrings. Check out my full review of the Connoisseurs 1050 Diamond Dazzle Stick.
Promising review: “The center stone of my ring (an oval white sapphire) has been cloudy since shortly after I got it. I have to use a lot of hand sanitizer at work, which gets under the stone. This product was easy to use. The little brush gets under the stone really well (much better than a toothbrush). My ring looks like new.” —FintanCat
Promising review: “I was lucky enough to have clear skin in high school so I never understood how awful acne really is. When I was about 21–22 years old, I switched to a birth control implant, and that thing wreaked havoc on my entire life. I suddenly had horrible cystic acne. Not only did it make me self conscious and uncomfortable, but it was actually so painful — laying on my pillow hurt my face! To top it all off, my skin was also dry, and irritated. I tried every skincare line on the market for about two to three years, with no, or very little, results. Finally, I found La Roche-Posay’s skincare products. Within four days, the inflammation decreased, the redness was fading, and my skin felt less dry. By two weeks, my skin was practically clear! I have been using this product for about four to five years now, and I haven’t had a single outbreak, EXCEPT for the time I wanted to try a different product to save money. Huge mistake, one I will not make again.” —LadyHawke
Promising review: “I work from home in a small apartment, and this really made my setup work the way I want it to. I need to use all six plugs, plus I like to keep my phone and Mi-Fi charging while working too. This was the perfect thing for me to get everything plugged in and essentially retrofitted into a built-in apartment wall desk setup that was intended for the large desktop towers of the late ’90s. I’m ordering a second one in hopes it transforms another part of my weird floor plan. Bonus: The USB ports seem to fast-charge my iPhone XS Max. I can go from dead to fully charged in about 90 minutes.” —Moose
Promising review: “I purchased this for my son to use with his cellphone (Galaxy S9) to take pictures and since he is taking a photography class in school. The remote worked easily with his phone. The tripod is sturdy and very flexible. I really like how the flexibility of the legs allows you to use the tripod in many different mounting positions compared to a firm leg-type tripod. I also like the fact that we can use this with our good camera as well. I haven’t tried that yet, but know it is sturdy enough to easily hold that as well (which is a Panasonic Lumix DMC camera). Definitely recommend this product.” —B. Kaplan
Honestly, no matter which version of the Dyson stick vacuum you purchase, I can promise you’ll be satisfied with the results. I’ve used a variety of ’em and I can’t say enough good things about the product. It doesn’t hurt my back to use for an extended period of the time, the battery lasts long enough to clean my entire apartment, and it simply just WORKS. We have ours mounted in a narrow spot alongside our fridge — it’s really easy to keep in plain sight without being an eyesore.
Promising review: “I love the Dyson stick vacuums. They were life-changing for me with two large dogs. I started off with the V6 pet and absolutely loved it but I beat it up using it three to five times a week. We ended up moving that one to our upstairs and purchased the V11. Amazing suction… I love that it switches modes itself as I go from carpet to wood floors. I think it’s heavier than my V6 pet but it’s still easy to operate. It holds significantly more debris which is great. By far my favorite part is that it tells me how much time I have left until the battery dies. My only negative comment would be that you have to remove the attachments in order to empty the bin but with all the other advantages this is very minimal.” —Mary Doherty
I have one of these bad boys and can validate that it is SO easy to use. I pop my phone into it when I get in the shower and click the lil’ button on the front to start the cleaning process. You can also charge your phone while it’s inside the machine. Fellow germaphobes — you can thank me later.
Promising review: “Bought this along with a set of agar plates to test it for ourselves. We swabbed my daughter’s and husband’s phones before and after use. It does work. We are very happy with the product.” —Ginger
Promising review: “Works good, lasts through being fiddled with all the times. The adhesive is SUPER strong, but so definitely works!” —Andrea Jackson
My entire family has jumped on the robot vacuum bandwagon since spending so much more time at home during quarantine — my father-in-law has this one. It cleans the house with ease and now he and my mother-in-law no longer need to have a debate over whose turn it is to vacuum. Win-win!
Promising review: “Upgraded from a perfectly good vacuum of a different brand since I wanted mapping. This works even better than I expected. It is much larger than my last robot vacuum which isn’t an issue, it was just surprising. Though the map still says in the app that’s it’s in beta, I haven’t had any issues with it at all. The no-go zones work perfectly and the mapping of my house is amazingly accurate. I like the option of choosing between four different suction settings and choosing one or multiple rooms to clean at a time. It is excellent at sensing when it moves to carpet and increases the suction. The mopping function is what you would expect. If you have high hopes for a robot vacuum mop you might be disappointed, but it works as well as I thought it would. Overall very happy with my purchase and no complaints so far.” —tchang
This plant-based cleaner will remove streaks, smudges, and fingerprints from all stainless steel surfaces — sounds very therapeutic to me!
Promising review: “THIS Therapy Premium Stainless Steel Cleaner is AMAZING. New dishwasher and and a hungry dog are NOT compatible! Our small dog, 12 pounds, had a habit of stretching up her front paws and scratching her nails on the dishwasher while her food was prepared. Not even days had gone by and the new dishwasher had little thin claw scratches all down the front. I had stopped her by placing a footstool to block her, but other family members had not, despite my instructions. I tried several cleaners and had resigned to having a scratched appliance. But ONE try with the Therapy cleaner — yes, a *miracle*. The scratches cannot be seen at all — polished right out of sight. The dishwasher looks even better than when fresh out of the box — it is gleaming. I eagerly shared the success with my kitchen remodeler, who installs many appliances, and I hope others can restore their stainless products. Try it!” —L. Peterson
My husband’s number one thing he lamented over when we entered quarantine was how much he missed his office’s standing desk. When we had the chance to receive this one to test out he was thrilled. It was sooooo easy to put together — only a handful of steps! Even the most technologically challenged person could use this without stress. You plug it in and *BOOM* it’s ready to go. He loves shifting between sitting and standing all day now that we’re working from home all the time.
Promising review: “The desk is beautiful and is more sturdy than I expected. Assembly is super easy, with only three steps. I chose the reclaimed wood top to match my office decor and it matches perfectly. I stand most of the day now and haven’t had a neck ache since. I highly recommend Vari products for quality, customer service, speed of delivery, and easy of assembly. I LOVE my electric standing desk” —Tammy V
Promising review: “We, regrettably, had not properly cleaned our glass stove top for six months. We’d wipe and clean with generic products we had, but nothing removed the deep stains. It was not properly maintained by the previous tenants either, so I wasn’t hopeful we’d get it back to its original appearance. It looked horrible. My mom recommended this product to me and she uses it faithfully. With help of the razor, this product completely transformed our stove top. It looks like it was just installed. I’m so happy and relieved. This will be a must-have item in our kitchen for years to come.” —Amazon Customer
Promising review: “Of all the things I have bought that I didn’t need, this is one of my favorites. Beer is hard to get out of the cardboard carrier in the top of my fridge. While just taking them out and sitting them on the shelf would have solved this problem as well. This solution is more fun. They float and technically it does make a tiny bit of extra space under the beer for small things like cheese or something.” —AbbyValentine
Promising review: “It seems counterintuitive to put a little packet down your garbage disposal to clean it, but this does actually seem to work, at least for getting out weird smells that baking soda and vinegar don’t really touch. I scrub the sink down first, especially around the garbage disposal area, rinse it down, and then just follow the directions on the package. I have used it with single, large-size sinks and with double sinks — only difference is that the double sink will have blue cleaning foam rise up the drain, which you rinse away when the disposal sounds clear again. I have tried the foaming cleaner in a can, but unfortunately it stopped coming out of the can about 10% of the way through. Went back to this tried-and-true.” —KS
Promising review: “These glasses are perfect for working on the computer, playing videos games, and even watching movies! I love the pale pink color, they’re very feminine and fit my face just like I’d hoped. I recommend them for anyone that spends time on phones or computers” —Kelly Stagg
Promising review: “These eyelashes saved me SO much money, I was always buying disposable or single use lashes and wasting tons of money on glue too. This saves me not only time and money, but a ton of frustration too! You don’t have to sit around and wait for glue to dry and then use eyeliner on top of it, you can get both in this product! It can be harder to remove the eyeliner but I found using microclear makeup remover water works great! I’ve used the eyelashes over and over again on a daily basis, highly recommend. Great for people just starting to use them too! The magnets on the eyelashes are not visible and the hold is STRONG. Apply two layers of eyeliner for best results and let dry before sticking the lashes on!” —Midnah
Promising review: “I think I have very average teeth. I, like most people, want to rise above the ranks of average and come to a piercing white gleam on my teeth. I want pain to be inflicted on my friends and family when they stare into my glistening white beauties, as the pure reflection of white is burned into their eyes. This product is great for doing just want i want, I really think this is one of the best products out there, for what it does. One key thing to take away is their adhesive is very strong, and it doesn’t slip around your mouth when you have them in.” —Daniel
Promising review: “This thing just plain works. We got a mature golden retriever last year and were told he didn’t shed. Then in the spring he started shedding badly. We were tired of hair everywhere and somehow I realized that dragging my shoe across the carpet balled the hair up. I found this product on a whim one day and knew it had to be better than my shoe! I ordered it and it was tough at first. The bristles pulled the hair up but then caught the tufts and spread them around. I found that using short quick strokes with the rake turned upside down got the best results. The backside is more like a squeegee and helps pull the hair up in long rolls and keeps the hair in one big pile.” —Nick V.
Promising review: “I have NO idea why this product would ever have less than a five-star review. It is a great brush set — I used all three in an effort to get some mildew stains off the grout in my shower. NOTHING worked, but a bit of Soft Scrub (bleach) and these brushes worked like a charm! I then used the larger brush on the floor of the shower, and to remove some soap scum from the glass shower doors. WOW! Where has this been all my life?! Excellent product, works like it should in conjunction with your power drill.” —SomeGirl
Sing it with meeee: 🎶 Mr Clean will clean your whole house and every room that’s in itttttt 🎶.
Promising review: “I make sure we keep plenty of the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Cleaning Pads on hand. It is not a sponge. It is a dirt-and-grime lifter, and cleans surfaces like greasy stove tops, grayish grout, and slimy sink scum like nothing else. They do the jobs that a sponge can’t. The evidence of its effectiveness is how quickly the pad loads up with hidden filth including lint, dust, and cat hair. The sponge sees dirt better than my eyes do, and for this, I trust Mr. Clean to get my surfaces sparkling and free from debris. If you use them as much as I do, you will go through a few of these Magic Erasers a week, but they’re worth their muscle and have become an essential household helper.” —Kort
Promising review: “My Macbook Pro charger wire was starting to break so I got some Sugru to mend the damage. Absolutely incredible product that saved me like $70 to get a new charger. The only downside is each package is not resealable. Luckily I also had an iPhone cable and Apple earphones to reinforce. So basically, Apple, get your s*** together and pack some Sugru with your products.” —Leesankwok
