A bleach-free, no-scrub weekly shower spray so soap scum and shower grime buildup goes bye bye
Promising review: "We cannot BEGIN to tell you what a lifesaver this is! We have two old fiberglass tubs with vinyl shower enclosures that no matter what amount of scrubbing we have done with everything from bleach to cleanser to vinegar and baking soda would NOT come clean. After I took my shower last night, I sprayed down the tub and walls. Within minutes, all the built-up water deposits and dirt and grime began to melt away in front of my eyes. I left it on overnight, and when I got up this morning, it did not look like the same tub and shower. This product is a godsend, especially for old folks like us who have difficulty getting down on our hands and knees and scrubbing anything. More importantly, it performs as advertised. We plan on using it as part of our weekly cleanup routine. This is truly an overnight sensation!" —Amazon customer

A pet hair remover if you're tired of getting fur all over your clothes
Promising review: "If I could give this product six stars, I would. My husband and I use it almost every day. We have three furry dogs and six fluffy cats, which makes for A LOT of hair. We were using a lint roller before we bought our ChomChom Roller. The lint roller didn't work very well and had to be replaced. We have had our ChomChom Roller for months and it still works just as well as it did when we first got it. We can actually invite our friends over now without worrying about all the pet hair." —Morgan Willis
3
A cruelty-free vitamin C serum that'll give your skin a much-needed pick-me-up
Promising review: "Works as advertised. I find it makes the dark marks disappear much quicker after a breakout. I bought this for mild under eye wrinkles and have definitely seen the difference. Been using it for two months or so and now it's part of my holy grail products. I also noticed that I have had less breakouts since I started using this product." —M. Russell
4
A teeth-whitening pen because it's a heck of a lot quicker (and tastes a lot better) than those irritating whitening strips
Promising review: "I was hesitant to try a new teeth-whitening product after using harsh whitening strips that caused pain and lingering sensitivity. But, as a coffee and red wine drinker, I wanted to find a solution. This teeth whitening pen is terrific. Easy to use, works well and does not have the downside of either the strips or the $450 option at the dentist. I also really love this product since whitening my front teeth is the objective. It is a great value as I anticipate the two pens that are included will last one year. I will definitely buy this again and am very happy to recommend it." —Rebecca Shehee
5
A pancake batter bottle for households that gobble down crepes, pancakes and waffles
The bottle isn't just for dispensing, either. It also has a whisk ball in the bottom so you can mix up your batter with just a few shakes.

Promising review: "I love this thing! It is easy to clean. The only thing is that I add water then powder mix; if you do it the other way it will clump up and not mix and you will have to open it and knock it loose to shake some more. You may not have that problem depending on how much you’re making but I have a family of six so we make a lot at once." —Danielle

A pair of fleece-lined joggers
FYI, this is included in Prime Try Before You Buy so you can give it a trial run if you're a member!

Promising review: "I'm very happy with these warm pants. My house is very cold in the winter, and I am very cold in the winter. A few reviewers commented that the fit is weird. It is not. These are sweatpants, and with a thick lining; what did you expect? They are very comfortable and warm. They are stiffer than regular sweatpants because of the lining. But they are sweatpants — meaning they were never meant to make you look like a fashion queen. Just imagine curling up on the sofa with hot chocolate and a friendly cat during a polar vortex in your fleece-lined pants. Nice and cozy!" —Angela Thompson

A "Bread Buddy" dispenser if your family goes through a bag of sandwich bread every couple of days
Check out a TikTok of the Buddeez sandwich bread dispenser in action.

Promising review: "Great product and easy to get to the bread. No worries about spending time tying the bag. Just pop the lid on and go! I highly recommend it. It saves time for me. As a single mom with six kids, I love it." —Toni Drake
8
A pair of compression gloves
Promising review: "Worth a 10-star rating! I got diagnosed about a month ago with pregnancy-induced carpal tunnel. My doctors recommended getting wrist braces, which I did. They helped a little, but every night for the last month I have woken up 2–4 times each night in tears from the pain and numbness. I decided to purchase these to try along with my braces before seeing an orthopedic doctor for cortisone shots. When I first put them on I didn't think they were big enough, but once I got my swollen fingers into them they fit 'like a glove'! They give great compression and are not too binding at all. I knew right away I would still need my wrist braces over them to keep my wrists straight so I put these on and the braces on top before I went to bed last night. I am very pleased to say I slept through the entire night for the first time in at least a month! I have a feeling I will be using these gloves during the day at times at work as well. I love that they go almost all the way up my fingers but do leave my fingertips exposed so I can still do things while wearing them. If I could give these gloves 10 stars I would. I love them more than my pregnancy pillow I got!" —Jessica M
9
A Squatty Potty, because a bout of constipation shouldn't leave you down in the dumps
Promising review: "What can I say? The process of excretion can only be compared to a real life exorcism where it feels, pleasantly if I may add, that the devil himself is trying to burst out of your gut. Needless to say, the stool changed my life. I found myself creating excuses to run to my magical place and discharge whatever little portion of food was left inside me; I was hooked. Soon people started wondering why I've become so distant; the stool had taken over my life. It would have taken over your life too if you would have experienced the kind of pleasure that I was now enjoying; it was my high." —Dino

A pack of dishwasher cleaning tablets to clean your machine as it runs
Promising review: "I rarely post reviews, but this stuff has completely changed our lives. Our dishwasher, utensils, plates, and glasses were covered with dry scale and nothing we tried came close to helping. After using the tablets three times our dishwasher looks like new; our glasses are sparkling like fine china and everything else looks fabulous. Highly recommend, worth every penny, best product BY FAR!!! One great advantage is you can use it with your dishes. Some other products are used to clean the dishwasher but not to clean dishes and glasses. Buy this, you will be blown away!!! It is astounding!" —Jenny
11
And some washing machine cleaning tablets for cleaning and freshening the inside and dissolving residue
They're safe to use with pretty much any type of washer: HE or regular, top-loading and front-loading.

Promising review: "I've been using this product for several years now. I have two teens and a husband who's an auto technician. Boy do they get filthy! After time this grime buildup will make your washer stink bad. I don't do it every month as they say to as I don't have that type of money but when it stinks, this product is the bomb! Makes your washer smell really fresh, like brand new. If it still stinks after one tablet, pop another one in and no more stink!! Yay! I would give this 20 stars if I could. Really love this product so much so that I bought the ones for my dishwasher too!! (they work great too!)" —berja
12
A genius humidifier tank cleaner so you can go longer between washes
Promising review: "A small price for peace of mind that your humidifier water is bacteria-free. Easy to use and cute to see bobbing around in the humidifier. It doesn't add any noise at all. Love it. Easy transaction and fast shipping. A+" —LABoyle
13
A hair band cutter if untying your little one's hair feels like an impossible task
Because there's a blade in the tool, you may want to keep this out of the hands of your little ones. Some reviewers have accidentally cut hair as well as the hair tie so be sure you're lifting the elastic away from the head before you cut!

Promising review: "I absolutely love these. They have been the only way to remove tiny hair ties without pain. They are easy to use and the design lets you pull the hair tie without catching hairs in the blade. I use the little clear hair ties with both of my kids multiple times a week, so it has made a huge difference." —Lauren Givens
14
A pack of slow cooker liners that'll come in handy if you have a lot of hungry people to feed
PS: They also come in handy with dishes going into a water bath (think: cheesecakes, custards, and puddings).

Promising review: "We constantly use our crockpot for easy meals. I'm a teacher and my husband is a firefighter, and it's just easy for our family of five. No real cleanup. I toss the bag in the trash after use and will just run a wet rag around the inside of the pot for good measure. Never have a problem with holes or burning." —Ashley Matthews
15
Some discreet plant clips so the stems don't get stepped on
Promising review: "I am so happy with these plant clips. Prior to buying them I used a large hook to hold the plants. It was ugly and not practical. These clips work so well and are a great value! It's a bonus that they blend in with the plant." —Paige Johnson
16
A set of wad-free pads (from Shark Tank!) for keeping your bedsheets from tangling in the wash
Wad-Free is a small biz that was launched during the pandemic. Cyndi Bray, the founder, learned CAD (computer-aided design) to create the pads.

Promising review: "Wow!!! You wonder if things like this really work and well, I can absolutely confirm it does! First, I was impressed that the package came with two of the devices because I was only expecting one. So there was one for the fitted sheet, and the flat sheet. Finally, I tried it out and my sheets not only did NOT wad up, they came out of the dryer feeling fresher, feeling more dry, and unwrinkled! I will be buying a set of these for each of my immediate family members and close friends! What a great gift!!!" —katy
17
A TikTok-famous pink cleaning paste so you can restore your walls and dressers when your little ones go Baby Picasso
See it in action on TikTok here!

Promising review: "If this stuff isn’t in your arsenal yet, you need it. I accidentally got GREEN hair dye all over my white sink. Bleach, CLR, Magic Erasers — nothing touched it. The Pink Stuff was my Hail Mary while I was panicking about what I would tell my landlord. The stains are completely gone and I have a white sink again!" —Courtney Foltz
18

A collagen-coating hair treatment if your dry, damaged, and overprocessed strands could use a little TLC
Promising review: "My hair used to be really soft, and then I discovered hot tools and hair dye. While my hair looks good I really missed the soft texture. This works so well. There are no instructions on the box but I washed my hair with my usual shampoo, towel dried it, worked about two quarter-sized dollops through my hair, let it sit for 20 minutes and then rinsed out. I went to bed with wet hair which usually results in my hair being kind of tangled and rough-looking but I woke up and my hair was as soft and silky as it was before I started coloring it. I'm totally in love with this product, I have long fine hair but this doesn't leave it greasy or weigh it down. I'll definitely buy again." —Ellie
19
A pack of foaming garbage disposal cleaners that'll deodorize your sink ASAP and get rid of the funk
Promising review: "This product really works! We were dealing with a foul stench coming from our disposal for some time. We tried boiling water, vinegar, etc. This stuff sniffed out the smell real quick and deodorized it as well." —James Tiberius Kirk
20
A reviewer-beloved veggie chopper because you've got pounds of produce in your fridge
Promising reviews: "I bought this to ease my chopping. I have a large family that I cook for and spending anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour sometimes just chopping things was extremely exhausting. I have used this multiple times since I've purchased this and I am grateful. It was easy to use and the clean up was a lot faster than normal." —Jameelah Sheffield

"I make salads every night for a family of five. This takes me about two minutes to chop everything but the lettuce. This is saving me so much time. I throw my onion, baby tomatoes, and Persian cucumbers in it. Absolutely love it!" —Ricky
21
A bottle of professional grade callus-removing gel for dissolving hard dead skin in literal minutes
Promising review: "This is a Hail Mary! This is hands down the best product ever!!!! I have been using this product on my clients and it has made my job so much easier and less time consuming." —Diamante Valentine
22
Everneat / Etsy
A heavy-duty oven scrub so it's like the years of baked-on dinner explosions and drippings
Everneat is a small business based in Fairfield, Connecticut, that specializes in natural cleaning products.

Promising review: "This product is amazing! It works fast with pretty minimal elbow grease. The stainless-steel sponge that comes with it makes it easier. And it smells great!" —Melissa C.
23
A travel cupholder that will free you hands
Promising review: "This cup holder is perfect! It helps me a lot! Last time I took a plane with a suitcase and a cup of coffee, when it was my turn to check my passport and ticket, the coffee cup fell to the ground and coffee spilled. It was a nightmare! This time I bought this cup holder! I don't have to worry about where my cup and phone are! I can free my hands to do other things. I love it so much! Hope you love it too." —Philip
24
A box of cleaning K-Cups that'll get rid of residue in your machine
Promising review: "Thought I was having problems with my machine. Used two cups to flush the entire coffee maker out and it started working like new. Totally satisfied!" —Dara Pazooki
25
A grape cutter to give you peace of mind and soooo much time back now that you don't need to quarter grapes by hand
Promising review: "Love this grape cutter. It's small enough to fit in any drawer and sharp/sturdy enough to cut up various things. I have used it for not only grapes, but cherry tomatoes, strawberries, already pitted cherries, and blueberries. It's easy enough for my toddler to use, too." —Seth Haderlie
26
A leave-in conditioner for curly-haired and tender-headed tots (and adults!)
Promising review: "This stuff is beyond 5 stars. I initially bought this for my son who is tender-headed. I have really curly hair and happened to break my ankle and was in the hospital for two weeks and couldn't wash and condition my hair like I do at home. I had what felt like dreadlocks in three places! I was hoping this would work on my hair and it was amazing! I completely soaked my hair with this stuff, waited a little while, and gently combed through it. I absolutely cannot believe how well it worked!!" —Bea
27
A padded workout top so you get optimal support while getting active and a cute everyday top
Check out this activewear essential on TikTok here.

Promising review: "I loved this top so much that I’ve already ordered two and plan on ordering more. The fit of the sewn-in sports bra is perfect. It’s not too constricting and tight but not so loose that it provides no support. The material that it’s made out of is breathable and soft. The top goes to about 1.5 inches above my belly button. I like how it fits but some other people might like it a bit longer. The straps are a soft material so they don’t dig in or rub uncomfortably. It’s also made of quality material so it won’t wear out quickly. I would highly recommend purchasing this product if you want a comfortable everyday crop top or a good gym top." —Glenda R.
28
Some acne patches
Check these out on TikTok here!

These are hands down the best pimple patches I’ve ever used. Why? Because they actually work. IMO they work best on whiteheads, drawing out the pus and preventing me from picking. Once all the fluids are drained (yum!), I plop a patch on what was once home to a very angry whitehead and replace it twice a day (once in the morning and once at night). In my experience, that has been the best treatment for preventing really noticeable hyperpigmentation and acne scarring, which my skin is really prone to after breakouts.

Promising review: "I have been experiencing terrible cystic acne. I also am a stress picker. I decided to get these as a last resort to avoid any more acne scars and it was the best purchase I have ever made. I put these on some really painful zits before bed and when I woke up they were gone! They literally suck all of the grossness out of my zits. I don’t want to say it was like magic but it was pretty much magic." —Demetria Olsen

A pair of super absorbent period underwear that'll handle your business without leaving you feeling like you're wearing a wet diaper
Some reviewers recommend sizing up! For more info, check out BuzzFeed writer Emma Lord's full Bambody period underwear review.

Promising review: "Very comfortable and incredibly absorbent compared to other brands I've tried. These are exactly what I needed! I don't want to have to think about my period every moment or worry about leaking. These give me such peace of mind. I don't use other products, just period underwear. I was so tired of everything else and even got sick of using cups. So I just wear these for my entire cycle. Heavier days I'm changing every five or so hours, but I'm talking really heavy. Regular days, I can go morning to evening. These are great for sleeping, too!" —Amazon customer

An odor-eliminating spray to lift stains and odors fast
Rocco & Roxie is a family-owned small business named after the Magleby family's pets Rocco, a Labradoodle, and Roxie, a former shelter tabby cat. They make a variety of pet supplies, including cleaners, treats, grooming tools, accessories, and toys.

Promising review: "I have six elderly cats, and a few of them oftentimes leave smelly pee puddles to register their disdain at whatever cats get 'peed off' about. It's not a litter box problem and, although I've caught one or two of them doing it, I can't blame them all. This product works great on fresh messes as well as dried ones. After blotting up fresh pee pods, I saturate the area with Rocco & Roxie's odor remover and let dry. For dried stinky stuff, I just saturate the area and let it dry. It has a pleasant odor and completely eliminates the ammonia odor. Believe me, I've tried all kinds of products, and this one works the best. I buy gallons now just to have on hand. It's better than smelling that awful pee!" —mona mia

38 Things Reviewers Say Are Just As Good As The More Expensive Version
Essence's Lash Princess mascara, because TBH, we've all wasted too many years and too much money looking for the ~holy grail~ mascara. This one is less than $5, gives you instant length, and is DELIGHTFULLY sweatproof — reviewers call it out as an excellent dupe for Too Faced's "Better Than Sex" and Benefit's "They're Real." (01 of39)
Open Image Modal
Hello, that is my face above, because I bought into the hype of all the 5-star reviews and now I will never look back!! Putting it on is like giving my eyelashes butterfly wings. It doesn't get clumpy, it stays put ALL the livelong day no matter how much you sweat, and you can apply it on very lightly if you don't want it to look so dramatic, or continue applying for longer lashes each time.

Promising review: "Saw this product on TikTok and thought it would be expensive looking at the results they got. I am beyond amazed with how my lashes look after about two coats. For around $5 you couldn’t ask for a better mascara! I will be buying this same one when I run out. I was not expecting to like it as much as I do! No complaints." —Kd

Promising review: "I used L'Oréal mascara for years and every year it gets more expensive! This mascara is just as good, if not better, and it's A LOT cheaper. I highly recommend it!" —Leslie Onesto

COSRX Snail Mucin 96% Power Repairing Essence, a lightweight hydrating face serum designed for *all* skin types reviewers swear by for healing acne scars, fading dark spots, and smoothing fine lines. Users with sensitive skin especially appreciate how gentle it is compared to competitors, and a lot of them mentioned seeing results within the first few uses! (02 of39)
Open Image Modal
Promising review: "My skin dries out severely during the winter all the time, and I have to constantly use Vaseline to keep it moisturized (normal cream doesn't work on me). Imagine my surprise when my SO tried to put snail goo on me, eww!! I resisted for weeks refusing to use this product as she constantly vouched for its abilities. After a month I finally gave in, and boy it is amazing! My hands feel more moisturized than ever for longer and it doesn't leave a disgusting greasy feel as Vaseline. Take it from a once non-believer, you have to try this. Even if it doesn't work for you, you paid a fraction of what you would've paid for any other name-brand moisturizers." —Kyoko Ozaki

A "flossing toothbrush" with two layers of bristles — regular firm bristles, and longer ones that are 10 times thinner to clean deep in between your teeth and gums to mimic flossing. Reviewers love how deep the clean feels, and also how soft it is on sensitive teeth! (03 of39)
Open Image Modal
Mouthwatchers is a small business established by Ronald Plotka, DDS, that specializes in antimicrobial toothbrushes designed to get deeper cleans even patients with "great" dental hygiene might miss with traditional brush and floss routines.

I personally bought this a few months ago and love it! I use an electric toothbrush usually, but I feel like I'm getting a much more satisfying clean from these?? Especially because I tend to get yellow stains between my teeth no matter *how* much I floss, and these bristles seem to actually target that a lot more effectively. I've switched to using this in the morning and the electric one at night and definitely see a difference in that area in particular.

Promising review: "A thorough cleaning. This toothbrush cleans my teeth better than my expensive electric one. You actually feel the bristles scrubbing between your gums!" —Shiva H.

These come with a wireless charging case that provides up to 14 hours of charge (with the earbuds able to play for four-plus hours with each full charge).

Promising review: "Best decision! These are the greatest headphones ever! I saw them on TikTok months ago and added them to my wishlist. I got a new phone that doesn't have the headphone port so I decided it was time to finally buy them. They are amazing and I probably won't ever take them out of my ears! 😂" —Katlyn D Arnold

Another promising review: "AMAZING AirPod dupe for a fraction of the price. I hate the Apple headphones because they never stay in my ears. These have amazing sound quality and are super discreet. My husband now wants a pair after using mine!" —shelby zuccarini

Peach Slices Acne Spot Dots, a hydrocolloid sticker that you can apply straight onto a zit to flatten it, reduce redness, and even suck the gunk out of individual trouble spots overnight. Personally *love* to see a problem magically disappear while I'm snoozing. (06 of39)

Promising review: "This brand is so affordable and works just the same as the more expensive brands. I go through them so quickly so this is a plus! I’m generally a picker at my zits, but if I can get to one of these dots in time I save my face a lot of irritation and pain. I wear them at night and sometimes during the day, only takes about two to get rid of those pesky whiteheads, sometimes more for a big zit. They really suck everything out." —Savannah Wilson

Promising review: "I can’t believe how long this has been around! I tried Glossier’s Futuredew and realized it felt sort of too oily (and too expensive) for me. This product is SUCH an amazing duplicate that is slightly better! It’s not oily, but provides lightweight shimmer that I mix with my sunscreen for extra sun protection with some highlight effects. I love this! Does not make my super sensitive skin break out or feel oily like the Futuredew did." —e_whospends_money

A bottle of Elizavecca Hair Treatment, an Olaplex dupe repairing mask infused with collagen ingredients and protein extracts that will help restore hair health and reduce shedding. All you gotta do is apply it on wet hair after a shampoo, wait five minutes, and rinse it out.(08 of39)

This is designed to work on all hair types, with reviewers with 2b to 4c curls mentioning it worked for them!

Promising review: "Like many others, I tried this as a replacement for Olaplex. Honestly, Olaplex never had a great effect on my hair and certainly wasn’t worth the price. This did an unreal job on my hair!! I was skeptical (tried a little bit first because I was petrified it would burn off my hair and I would end up bald!) but, lo and behold, it was magic! My hair is so strong, silky, and healthy looking after just one use. Plus you can’t beat the price! Have already ordered another box. I should also add I have curly/wavy hair that’s been colored to a light brown. Buy it!!" —BB

Promising review: "No joke, these are pretty much exactly the same as my Skims lounge set for half the price. The pants graze the tops of my feet even when I wear them high-waisted at my belly button, so I think they’re plenty long. The robe is like wearing a blanket, but still looks put together.

Promising review: "I have the Winkylux version of this pH color changing lip balm and I enjoy it, however! This lip balm is legit one third of the price and just as good. Just as moisturizing. It’s a balm so it not super long lasting, but the color actually stains a bit which I fully enjoy. All in all exceeded my expectations and will be purchasing again!" —Tracy Medina

I have used a different massage gun in the past. This one is much superior!! I would say it is the same grade quality as a professional massage gun but much less expensive! I am very grateful for this product!" —Amazon Customer

A trio of hydrating lip sleeping masks for three Laneige dupes in *one* — this even comes in four different flavor combos so you can split them among friends, if you're feeling generous during this dry skin-inducing winter. (15 of39)

Promising review: "Dupe for the Laneige lip mask. This is the most moisturizing lip treatment in the market. When my lips started getting dry due to the cold season I was thinking of buying the Laneige lip mask, but it’s soooo expensive. This is a fraction of the cost and feels just the same. Very good product." —Riya

An affordable, reviewer-beloved robot vacuum (aka a Roomba dupe) you're going to love so much that you give it a name and treat it like a household pet. This reliable bb is designed to fit in tight corners and under small spaces to really deep clean the floors, has sensors to prevent it from bumping or falling, and can even be scheduled via a remote control so it'll just start cleaning whenever it best suits your fancy. Oh! It also automatically recharges itself when it's done. (16 of39)

Promising review: "This robo vac is the real deal. I bought one for my Mom for Christmas and bought one for myself afterward. It works as good, if not better, than the Roomba I had for a cheaper price! It picks up great and the slim size allows it to fit underneath a lot of unreachable places. My daughter, my cats, and I all shed a lot — not a problem anymore. The suction is really impressive and it’s picked up things a regular sweeper would have problems with. I honestly have no complaints at all on the Eufy boost IQ. You won’t regret buying this one!" —Lisa M.

A pair of lightweight legging-style joggers reviewers swear by for perfect Lululemon Align Jogger dupes — these are the perfect transition pants for exercise and errand-running on days when it's a little chilly, but not *quite* fully cold. (17 of39)
Open Image Modal
Promising review: "These are literally the best leggings/joggers I have ever owned, and I plan to eventually buy every single color. I originally saw these on TikTok and heard they were like the Lululemon ones but cheaper. I've never owned Lululemon leggings, but if they feel anything like these, then I have clearly been missing out. These are soft and absolutely perfect. I love the pockets and jogger style and that they fit like leggings and can be worn to the gym or dressed up with a cute outfit. I need to buy every color of these before they're gone!" —Courtney

Another promising review: "Love these joggers! If I could wear them every day I would. I want to order a pair in every color. They are so soft and so comfortable. The waist band is thick and is high waisted. They are very easy to move around in and fit as expected. The waist band is a little tight but they stretch out as you wear them. I ordered a pair for my mom and told my best friend about them and they loved them as well. These are good Lululemon dupes and very affordable." —Alissa Frey

A firming eye cream made with vitamin C, vitamin E, rosehip seed oil, and hibiscus flower extract to brighten and firm that sensitive skin around your eyes and neck not just on a day-to-day basis, but a long-term one, too.(18 of39)
Open Image Modal
Promising review: "I am super stoked that I purchased this product because it works — I was leery about it working but it does. I have used expensive eye creams that claimed to work which they did to some extent but not like this one, I started using this about two weeks ago but I started seeing results in a couple of days of the first application. It makes my eyes look awake and the fine lines and wrinkles are diminishing. It makes my skin feel smooth and I can put my eye makeup on easier, my dark circles are lighter too. It has an almost light to no scent which is good because I have somewhat sensitive skin, and have not experienced any reaction. The bottle allows just the right amount to be dispensed so I don't have to worry about too much coming out." —Amazon Customer

Promising review: "I saw this sweatshirt advertised by an influencer on TikTok. I purchased almost immediately because everyone said it was a good dupe for the Lululemon jacket.

A reviewer-beloved veggie chopper that'll have you feeling like a golden god in your kitchen even without a fancy food processor — this gadget julienne, chops, spiralizes, and slices vegetables in an instant and has a built-in storage container to hold the chopped veggies so you can pour them into a pan or dish without any mess.

Fullstar is a small business established in 2017 that specializes in kitchen gadgets.

Promising review: "Surprisingly, this is a wonderful, sturdy kitchen tool. I bought it to use with onions but it works wonderfully with just about any veggie and fruit. My family loves chili, soups and stews this time of year. This cut the job of preparing to less than a third. It works on just about any veggie but beware the size. If you are cutting a really hard veggie, use smaller pieces for the machine. I would buy it again. It has actually taken the place of my much more expensive food processor. I wish I could return the much more expensive food processor, this does everything I wanted a food processor for." —E. M. Brooks

Maybelline's Cheek Heat Gel-Cream Blush, which is basically the affordable Glossier Cloud Paint dupe you'll love so much you'll wanna buy it in every shade — it spreads on your cheeks like finger paint and requires truly NO strategizing to blend. It is truly the easiest part of my routine.(21 of39)
Open Image Modal
I'm a Glossier Cloud Paint stan so I'll continue to buy it, but I love this affordable dupe, too! It spreads on super easily and can either go on sheer or build for a bolder effect. I got the Rose Flush shade and enjoy it for ~everyday wear~ since it's so easy to squirt a bit on my fingers, swirl it into my cheeks, and be on my merry way. It lasts all day and looks super natural to boot!

Promising review: "I was skeptical about this, but decided to try it since the price is so good. I had read that it is a good dupe for Cloud Paint and I agree. This is very pigmented, spreads easily, and is a decent size (.27 ounces vs. .33 for Cloud Paint). And it's a third of the price." —Heather Kulper

Maybelline's Total Temptation Eyebrow Definer Pencil, an easy-to-use, subtle eyebrow filler just as effective as the ones triple its price — reviewers call it out as an excellent dupe for Benefit's Goof Proof and Anastasia Beverly Hills' Brow Wiz. (22 of39)

The tool comes with two ends, one a small eyebrow brush and the other a specially edged eyebrow pencil.

Promising review: "I bought this because it looked like a dupe for Goof Proof brow pencil and I was tired of spending ridiculous amounts on that! But not only was this a dupe but I actually like it better than Goof Proof (and for a quarter of the price)! I find it even creamier and easier to use. The tip is perfect if you have a good amount of brow to fill in." —Liza T.

Promising review: "I loved this brush so much I bought two more! It is the perfect blending brush for liquid, cream foundation, primers, concealers, and tinted sunscreen.

An enzyme-based laundry stain remover that works its magic in one wash to help you instantly get rid of all that discolored dried sweat, oil stains, or deodorant residue on your favorite clothes.(24 of39)

Check out a TikTok of the laundry spray in action.

Puracy is a Texas-based, family-owned small business specializing in plant-based, chemical-free, hypoallergenic home products, with a donation made to local families in need with a portion of every purchase.

Psst — this spray also does a number on all those other miscellaneous stains in your life, like wine, coffee, soy sauce, makeup, and period blood! I recently bought this to test it for myself, and can attest to how well it works to get period blood out even after you've tried something else. I stained a pair of beloved bright-blue bike shorts in my sleep and tried to get it out with soap and water, but the stain was still there when it came out of the wash. I treated it with this, stuck it back in the wash, and BOOM, it's like it never happened (I panicked before I could get a before and after, please forgive me, laundry gods).

Promising review: "Amazing! Removed every drop of blood that had been dried into sheets for seven days, although I did have to apply twice. This also removes many other stains. Goodbye, hideously expensive Carbona blood remover! Hello, Puracy!" —Wind in the Willows

A delightfully massive (and leakproof!) tumbler with a handle reviewers *swear* by as the ultimate Stanley cup dupe (you know — the $40 water bottle that's all over TikTok and IMPOSSIBLE to get in half the colors right now). This not only keeps beverages hot and cold for hours on end, but gives you even *more* color options to peruse from. (26 of39)

Promising review: "I’ve been using Simple Modern bottles since my sophomore year of college, so when I graduated and needed a 'big girl' tumbler that wasn’t covered in stickers and would be cute and functional in a professional environment, getting an SM tumbler was a no-brainer for me. I absolutely love the sea glass sage color, and of course, I had to get a matching 32-ounce water bottle, too! These are so sturdy, keeps my water icy cold through the day and the night, and motivates me to hydrate like no other. 1000x cuter than a Stanley tumbler or a Hydroflask, and a much more reasonable price! I get compliments on it every single day. I absolutely cannot recommend this brand and these tumblers enough!" —Hannah Rodlund

As an added bonus, there are no visible labels from the company on the shoe. (And reviewers say they're even easier to pull on than Uggs!)

Promising review: "I had these on my wishlist for a while but was skeptical. I’m glad I finally ordered them! They fit perfectly and SO much easier to put on than my real Ugg minis which I love. They’re very comfy and warm. Highly recommend! Glad I bought them to wear while I wait for Ugg to restock their tan ultra minis." —Kamryn

Promising review: "Let's call a spade a spade — this is a Lululemon knock off, and it's extremely well done. Just as well made and high quality, but at less than a quarter of the price. The medium fits perfectly and I can fit a thin long sleeve shirt underneath. If I wanted to layer it more, I'd need a large. If I only wanted to wear it with a sports bra, I'd wear a small. The fabric is stretchy, nice, and thick, but I haven't yet worn it in cooler weather to say how warm it is. I'm considering buying a few more in other colors. Probably my favorite athletic clothing purchase of the year!" —Wendy Piersall

I have tried multiple pairs and this brand looks and feels comparable to a pair of Ray-Bans and Pradas. I have a smaller face and to me this pair fits the best, perfect for my nose and brow line.

I recently bought these shorts because I needed some more breathable summer options, and they're phenom! I love the huge range of colors you can buy these in (at other places they often sell out too quickly to get to pick!), love that the high-waistedness of them meets about where my running crop top ends so I don't have to get bonkers with sunscreen, and love love loooooove the side pocket for my keys or face mask. I only have them in purple so far, but I'm excited to try other colors!
