Amazon

Promising review: “This is the best long pajama set I’ve ever had! I was honestly surprised by how comfortable this set is to sleep in. The tie-dye print won’t fade after washing. Definitely recommend! It would be a cute gift too.” —Anne Page

A titanium 540 .25-inch microneedle derma roller designed to help reduce the size of pores, fine lines, acne scars, and wrinkles — just gently roll it across the skin to help stimulate rejuvenation and exfoliate.


amazon.com, Amazon

Promising review: “I have been using my derma roller for two weeks now and I am very happy with the results. I have used it once a week and use Mad Hippie Vitamin C Serum morning and night. My face feels moisturized and my acne scars have faded significantly.” —Amazon Customer

Promising review: “I purchased this to make cold brew coffee at the office. My coworkers and I were going to the local Siren at least three to four times a week for our afternoon pick-me-up. It was starting to become a serious drain financially. We all chipped in to get this pitcher and take turns buying beans. Get them ground for a French press, or super coarse, and you’ll have a pretty good replica. The instructions for making cold brew are pretty easy. Of course, you’ll get some micro grinds that will make their way through the filter but that’s to be expected. If you’re OCD about it, you could pour it through a strainer or paper filter. Or just let it settle and pour gently. We’ve seriously cut down our caffeine expenditures by 50-75%. Now if we could figure out a way to order out less. :)” —DT

Literally any one of the gorgeous pieces from the Sincerely Jules by Scunci collection — they’re all so pretty. Like the literal definition of pretty. Go look them up in the dictionary, they’ll be there, under pretty.

A bottle of Optix 55 Fog Gone spray which can be used to help clear up the fogginess your glasses experience when you’re wearing a mask — I actually do own this, and it works pretty well. The key is to make sure and gently rub it in with a lens cloth. From my experience, it doesn’t stop your glasses from fogging but rather it makes the fog disappear SUPER quickly. You do have to use it every day and it’s not 100% but it’s WAY better than just going out there with nothing.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I think I let the name hype up my expectations. I was expecting no fog at all. Afterthought I’m not sure if that would ever be completely possible. Instead with this spray applied my glasses will fog up and instantly clear up — the fog does not linger on my lenses. I’ve been using it at work and it works out I can still see the fog literally moves across my lenses and clears up. After using this spray for a few days I’m completely satisfied. I will say I work 12-hour shifts and I have to apply this spray twice throughout my shift, usually at the 10 hr mark. I do really like this spray.” —JSnyder

Get it from Amazon for $8.55+ (available in three sizes).

A pack of FaceTory’s Moon Velvet sheet masks filled with Jojoba Seed Oil (which will help moisturize while treating acne, fighting wrinkles, and soothing skin) and ceramides (which protects the skin from environmental stressors) to leave you with a perfect and refreshing glow.

Promising review: “I had my doubts about this brand, but then I tried the MOON VELVET sheet mask… AAAAMAZING! It’s like a sheet mask covered in a serum night cream. I washed/exfoliated my face, applied my retinoid, and then threw this bad boy on. I left it on for about 40 minutes, and when I tell you it felt like I had poured an expensive moisturizer on my face, girl… As I said, amazing. I didn’t need to apply my usual night cream after this mask because it felt like it had sealed in all my serums for me. I’m definitely repurchasing.” —constance trujillo

An adorably small mini electric round griddle so you can make individual pancakes, cookies, eggs… so many good things! Plus it’s super easy to clean (it has nonstick surfaces that you can simply wipe down).


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “This gadget is small but packs a big punch! It heats up fast. Great for college or a camper. I love it! First thing I made was a grilled cheese. It turned out perfect. Crispy and delicious — although the bread did not fit all the way, it was still better than using a pan. Get it you won’t regret it.” — Arely8930

Amazon

Promising review: “I really love this pajama set. I have ordered it in two colors. It is soft, good quality, and good material. I sleep so well in it. I don’t think the cuts on the shorts are too high, it’s kinda sexy and nice. You can’t see anything. I really recommend it. :)” —Sebastian Tuchan

Get the set from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in XS-XXL and in eight colors).

A machine-washable roll of Clorox-infused Easy Liner shelf liner which not only helps whatever you put on top of it stay put but it also helps prevent mold and mildew thanks to the Clorox.


Amazon

Promising review: “If you’re looking for a good quality, non-adhesive liner for drawers, then this is it. It’s durable, has a nice thickness to it, and is way easier to deal with than the old fashioned adhesive liners. I chose this to line my new kitchen drawers where I have all my dishes and plates. The tacky surface lets you place items in and they will not slide or move around when closing/opening drawers. It’s perfect for this application.” —Jeneroo2u

A genius little Aquapaw slow treat-dispensing mat so you can distract your pup while you clean ’em up — it easily sticks to any smooth service (like your shower tiles) and you just fill it with some PB.


Amazon

Promising review: “We have a 30-pound lab mix rescue who hates water. Usually, she shakes and tries to escape the bathtub. With this product, she got distracted and stayed in place. We put peanut butter in it and froze it so that it would take longer. Having the nubs helps slow her down too. It stayed in place on our tub with the suctions. Basic product but works great.” —book nerd

It’s also non-drying and non-irritating so your skin is left bright and refreshed.


Versed

Promising review: “I completely love this product. I’m 27 with normal to oily skin and period acne. This stuff works wonders for my skin. It keeps it dewy but not greasy throughout the following day (yes, even after cleansing) and clears my period acne right up. Incredible stuff, lightweight application that absorbs quickly. 11/10!” —KIRBY279

A memory foam wedge pillow for all of you out there who are just like me and love having that extra cushion around your knees when you sleep.


Amazon

Promising review: “I have had both of my hips replaced and have to sleep on my back. I’ve tried several pillows to place behind my knees for back support and comfort, and this half-moon bolster is the absolute BEST! It is just the right height and density and is very comfortable. I’m sleeping so much better!” —Sandra M.

A colorful cascading wall organizer designed with six letter-sized pockets to help you keep everything organized and accessible.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I purchased this to use as a part of our family’s kitchen ‘command center;’ this is in a highly visible area of our house so I wanted something that was functional, low-profile, and not an eyesore. This organizer is PERFECT. There are enough pockets for each of our four family members, plus a few more that I’ve designated for bills and other correspondence. It helps keep the paper clutter off the counters and easily accessible for each of us. I love the clear front pocket where I keep my second grader’s ‘specials; calendar so he can easily see whether he has PE, art, music, or computer lab on any given school day. I like the bright colors; they help to liven up my kitchen but aren’t at all tacky. Each folder is removable so the colors can go in any order you want.” —Heather

A universal tablet stand to hold your device while you lie, hands-free, in bed.


Amazon

Promising review: “I go to sleep every night reading a book, looking at the news, or playing a game on my iPad. I am a back sleeper and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been jolted awake by the iPad falling on my face after falling asleep with it in my hands. Last night, I used this for the first time and I can’t tell you how happy I am….it is brilliant. I fell asleep and my face was safe! It is easy to use, it is the perfect height so that I can keep my head resting on the pillow. Worth every stinkin’ penny!” —LulaBelle
