A scalp brush
Over 5,000 reviewers swear by this scalp brush that'll give you a soothing head massage and help minimize stubborn buildup.

Promising review: "Anyway, I saw this shampoo brush and it looked a lot more flexible, so I thought I’d give it a try and HOLY MOLY my flakes are gone! It’s made out of a silicone-type material and the little 'bristles' are flexible but still get the job done. I can literally brush my hair with shampoo in and it doesn’t get tangled. It’s amazing. Not only do I have zero flakes now, but I feel like using this does a way better job at working the shampoo in and getting your hair and scalp really clean. I have super thick hair and no matter how much shampoo I use or how long I scrub my hair, I felt like the back, underneath part of my hair would sometimes stay dirty. This brush gets all that." — Meg R

A NYX Epic Ink Liner
Complete a cool cat eye or fab winged look with this affordable eyeliner that's waterproof and has a precise tip.

Promising review: "I don't usually write reviews, but I had to rave about this eyeliner because it's amazing. This is my new favorite. I think the quality is even better than Kat Von D overall, plus it's at least $10 cheaper. It basically fits all of the requirements I would want in my perfect eyeliner. It's affordable, extremely black, opaque, easy to use, and waterproof, it stays on for a long time and the tip is quite thin so you can get wings as sharp as a sword. I also usually have to use makeup remover and concealer to clean up my lines, but I barely need to do any maintenance with this. My cat-eyes have been turning out so clean and beautiful. It bleeds less than most eyeliners I've ever used." — Cat

A double-circle belt
This luxe-looking accessory will look amazing with a double-breasted blazer or pair of high-rise jeans.

Promising review: "This is my favorite belt! It's perfect with jeans and I get so many compliments on it. I love that the double-ring is sort of designer-inspired, but not a complete knockoff of the Gucci belt. I highly recommend! I am typically a medium and the medium was perfect." — Everyday Teacher Style

A soothing lip balm
SPF 25 protection and an antioxidant-rich formula make this balm great if you're prone to dry, chapped lips.

Promising review: "Hands down the best lip product I’ve ever tried. I was recommended this by someone on Reddit, and I am so happy I tried it! I’ve experienced severely dry, cracked lips since I was a teenager, and basically everything I’ve tried in the past has failed me on one level or another. I’ve been using these Jack Black balms for the past six months or so, and my lips look so much better." Cara

A weekly planning pad
Check-off your weekly to-do list and give your mouse a cool resting spot while you work from home.

Promising review: "This calendar is incredibly handy for keeping track of projects at work. There's plenty of room for writing down daily tasks; I've been known to cram in lots of tasks in each day's column for particularly busy weeks. The spot for the pen is really handy, too. And I love the positive affirmations for each day! The whole thing sets a great vibe for the week. Plus, the quality is excellent — the paper is sturdy, and each week tears off easily from the side." — Katie Marie

I have to aggressively exfoliate and moisturize between shaves, and this bar is the best exfoliator I’ve found. With regular use of this I have no ingrown hairs. My skin feels so soft and smooth. It is a bit drying though so I recommend following with a moisturizer. I highly recommend this if you’re looking for a more intense scrub." — Glossier Customer

Treat your pup to a DIY spa day with this non-toxic polish that'll add a pop of color to their nails and let them match your current mani!

Promising review: "Got this on a whim because my girlfriend wanted to paint the dog's nails. We received it really quickly and the polish went on easily and stayed on. We were cutting the grass and the dog went out and played in the fresh cut grass, running around, and it's still on! A little scuffed but still pretty much solidly on. So far two days have gone by and it's still on. We're going to get more colors." — Diaztortillas

Promising review: "I just bought a second pair of these for our vacation camper. These little things have saved me THOUSANDS of dollars over the years. I have used them almost every morning for the last 10 years. I used to stop every morning for an egg sandwich. Four or five dollars a day and now my cost is an egg, English muffin and a few slices of ham. After 10 years they still look like new and are a simple little gadget. Easily saves me $20 a week or $1,000 a year. I can put together a delicious egg sandwich in under five minutes, so a big time saver too." — Joe M.

A pastel nail polish
If you're looking for a vegan polish that'll add a subtle shimmer to your fingers, this is it: it has a pretty pastel shade and it won't chip fast!

Promising review: "This polish is a pale lilac with a delightful fuchsia-purple shimmer. The shimmer is noticeable, but does not overwhelm the base creme. It is subtle and cheerful. It needed three coats for complete opacity as the formula is a little thin, but the good news is that it isn’t patchy at all." — fluffy

Promising review: "This is a fun little set of cooking utensils. The beechwood handles look great in person and are comfortable to hold. The colors are vibrant and fun — my wife and kids love them. They are small, great for small containers or small prep jobs. The silicone on them is heat-resistant up to 425 degrees. They are easy to clean and come in very handy, especially when the kids are helping us cook. Overall we are very happy with this set. We are satisfied with the quality and functionality and know they will get lots of use in our kitchen." — Cass Young

In love with these. They would make amazing gifts and are awesome to use for yourself. They made a loud noise in the dryer at first because they are hard, but once they warm up they become softer and you don't hear anything. Love love love them." — Amazon Customer
