It also helps tighten eye wrinkles if you'd prefer for them not to be as noticeable. And here's a tip! It reduces puffiness faster if used after refrigeration.
Promising review: "This is definitely a miracle product. I was impressed that it worked so well, so fast, and so instantly. The packaging is silly but whimsical; I enjoy it. This is the last thing I apply before walking out the door. First day I used it, I put it on and got in my car — I looked in the rear view mirror and my heart jumped. My eyes had de-puffed on my walk down the front path!!! So impressive. It's not hydrating, it’s more tightening/brightening. If you have dry under eyes, use a creamy hydrating eye cream first, and apply this over it — problem solved. You don’t get much product, but you don’t need to use much either, and it’s not like it’s expensive. Definitely worth it if a product actually DOES what it claims it’ll do!!! Buy it!" —Joseph S.

Promising review: "The Pink Stuff is definitely worth all the hype it has been receiving. I had seen it in some TikTok compilations and decided to give it a try. The very first thing I cleaned was the inside of my bathtub and wow! It really made my bathtub shine. Before I was using Kaboom, and that didn't clean as well as The Pink Stuff did. I was seriously shocked. The next thing I decided to use it on was some caked on grease on my hood vent. Just like the bathtub I was shocked that it was able to get it all off. All you do is apply the paste with a sponge or cloth to whatever you're cleaning, and then rinse it with warm water. I found with stubborn spots add a little warm water on the paste (if you have a spray bottle I'd recommend filling that with warm water and mist the paste), scrub the spot a little longer, and then rinse. It worked with no issue. I'm definitely interested in to looking at their other cleaning products. I would highly recommend giving The Pink Stuff a try yourself!" —JMURR

Promising review: "I am not a gardener and don't have a lot of luck with plants. That said, these spikes are amazing. You can see the difference in weeks. This is the best indoor plant product I have ever used, mainly because it is so darn easy. I definitely recommend these plant spikes." —V. Kline

Let me just say that I am sooo picky with my mascara. I need my lashes to look ultra-long, voluminous, and completely clump-free. I used to jump from mascara to mascara, but this is the only one I've found that has kept me coming back to it for years. Totally worth the hype!
Promising review: "This is the best mascara. I have had the worst time finding a mascara that I like. I have tried everything. I saw all the great reviews and the photos and the GREAT PRICE. For the price I had to try it. When I received and tried it, I immediately ordered one for my mom to try. She loved it also. This is my new mascara. You won't go wrong with this!" —Monica Spisak

Promising review: "I bought this product for my 25-hour flight! This product is so easy to use. Just chew until it’s a paste, wet your tooth brush and.. brush! Still gives that amazing mint refreshing flavor just like regular toothpaste. It’s just more convenient to put these in my carry-on and go! A travel must have!" —Jessa Breeze

Seriously, it's like Superman in toothbrush form.
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.
Promising review: "This was another one of my TikTok purchases! I was skeptical but my kids hate flossing their teeth so thought this might help in between making them floss. They work amazing! My kids said they could see and feel a different on the first use and I agree! They are definitely with a try! I would suggest not pushing too hard, those tiny bristles really get in there and if you push too hard you nights be sore like I was. It felt like after going to a dental cleaning." —Amy N.

Promising review: "I have naturally blonde, medium length, more coarse hair that gets damaged from heat styling and is just naturally dry. I was looking for a hair mask to help heal my dry ends and just general damage. I followed the directions on the box, and left it in my hair for 15 minutes, and rinsed my hair, and styled as normal, and my hair has never been so sleek, and NOT weighed down, and the hair cuticles are together, and not frizzy. AND it's sooooo humid outside today and my hair stayed looking fresh. BONUS! I've tried so many masks and treatments that have weighed down my hair or left a weird residue, this is the best one I've ever tried. For my hair length/thickness, I could get about five treatments from this size of a bottle." —Annie J.

It comes with a precision cover to help you shape your brows to the exact shape you want. Or leave them just how they are. Remember, removing facial hair (or any hair) is optional, not necessary!
Promising review: "Plucking the more egregious of my thick black hairs is at least a 2–3x/week effort. I opened these rather hesitantly — I mean, they are sharp blades going on your face — took a sip of Prosecco for courage, washed my face and started shaving. I could not believe how easy and quick it was. After a couple of swipes down my cheek, I noticed that it was done. I thought it was going to take a lot more skill and time. First complete face shave (full cheeks, upper lip, lower lip, jawline) over and done with in less than three minutes with outstanding results. So much easier than tweezers and depilatories!! Wow." —Tara D.

Promising review: "This is by far the best cleaner for the disposal. It not only foams away grime from disposal, but also the drain in the next-door sink. I have tried other cleaners, which do little or nothing, and when I couldn't find Glisten at the big box store where I originally purchased it, I even tried the old standby of baking soda and vinegar. While that was better than using those little citrus smelling beads, I was really happy to find this product on Amazon. I now have several months' supply and will not be without again." —Anne B. Ward

I've spent years hunting down the perfect concealer, and this one has been the BEST at brightening my under-eye bags after a sleepless night and disguising the blemishes from my latest breakout. Just a reminder though — blemishes are totally normal.
Promising review: "I have been using this concealer for years and still love it. It is by far the best I have ever used. I have chronic sinus infections and because of this, I have really dark circles under my eyes. This covers them almost completely. A little goes a very long way so one tube lasts me a few months. It also lasts a long duration of the day, even when sweating. Easy to remove and the price is great!" —Amazon Customer

This is a vegan and cruelty-free shampoo.
Promising review: "Best, most affordable brush and sponge shampoo on the market! No joke, I have tried everything; even homemade hacks like dish detergent mixed with olive oil. Nothing works like this brush shampoo. Don't waste your money on the Beauty Blender soap and other big-name brands." —Lily

Bug Bite Thing is a family-owned small business established in 2017 that specializes in bug bite relief products.
This works on bites and stings from mosquitoes, bees, wasps, biting flies, sea lice, and a bunch of other things that are the reason I don't claim to be an outdoorsy personality.
Promising review: "I bought this because I saw it on TikTok, and have been having issues with mosquito bites. Used it a few times to relieve itchiness and I am convinced it works! Have been recommending it to my family and friends. Read the directions and follow them carefully. Don't use this on your face or neck, or other sensitive areas. Don't do a lot of suction, just a little bit. And do it a few times if needed. Great invention!" —Joe
Get it from Amazon for $9.95 (available in three colors).
They come indivifually wrapped and free of registered pesticides. Check out a TikTok of the mosquito-repelling bracelets in action.
Cliganic is a small business based in San Francisco.
Promising review: "I moved last year from Southern California to North Carolina. Bugs of all types have always been attracted to me but the amount of bites I got last summer was WILD. Someone gave me one of these types of bracelets to use one day and it seemed to work SOOOOOO I decided to buy myself an arsenal to prepare for this summer. I read the reviews and about 99% of them had great results. I've only used this bracelet twice but both times I was outside and untouched. Delivery was very quick so that was a plus. I'm not fond of the smell, I'm hyper sensitive to smells, but I'd rather have the odor than being chewed alive." —Tracey Agopian

Promising review: "I love this stuff and recommend it to anyone and everyone. This size is perfect for travel, your purse, or your pocket. I left it in the hotel room bathroom for peeps to use and it worked like a champ. I also took it on a train with me and, although there’s no water in the tank, the spray in the commode after still left the restroom smelling dandy!! Wish everyone used this lil’ guy! Lol." —Jenn B Johnson
Get it from Amazon for $4.99+ (available in five sizes, 13 scents, and in packs of one or three).
It suits all dishwasher makes and models. Just pop one into the tray where you'd normally put detergent (or on the bottom of your dishwasher if you're washing dishes at the same time), and run as usual!
Promising review: "Best dishwasher cleaner yet. I've tried the other dishwasher cleaners. Some require require high temperature water to melt a wax plug. I don't want to add more chemicals that will stick to the surfaces. Others don't require melting wax, but they leave a cloying 'fragrance' that lingers for several washers. This product was so easy to use: cut the tablet from its sealed pouch and drop it into the detergent chamber inside the dishwasher and just press start. That SIMPLE! When it was done, the inside appeared to sparkle. Most of the gunk that had built up around the door and all the surfaces were clean. AND there was no lingering cloying odor. It smelled like nothing. Perfect." —David
Get a pack of six tablets from Amazon for $8.99.
They work with top and front load washers, including HE (high efficiency). Just place one tablet into the empty washer tub, select "clean washer" cycle, and remove any residue that may have been left behind. For washer non-HE washers without a "clean washer" cycle, select and run a normal or heavy cycle with the hot water setting. For HE washers without a "clean washer" cycle, select and run the largest load and longest cycle with the hot water setting.
Promising review: "First off, the price on this is wonderful. I've priced these from different places and this is the best price I've found by far. Now to attest to how well they work. These absolutely get the job done. We had an older dog who was in the last stages of life and used the bathroom in (washable) diapers, and had accidents on her blanket. We also have a 13-month-old baby who had bouts of vomiting on everything at the time...not to mention all of the regular household laundry. So, suffice it to say, we had a lot of washing going on. The washer didn't have a smell, but it did need to be cleaned rather desperately. I did the best I could with various cleaning products, but this surpassed any attempts I made. With only one tablet, there were immediate results. The washer smelled fresh and clean, and looked brand new on the inside. Our clothes were even cleaner after a wash cycle once we used these. I would whole-heartedly recommend this product, especially if you have babies and/or fur babies." —Pinkribbon20

Promising reviews: "My kitchen sink needed to be sealed so I looked into this item. It did not disappoint. It's very easy to use and I like the fact that it's clear. I used tools to make it neat afterwards. I no longer have to worry about water leaking when I'm doing the dishes." —Joe
"I had my reservations about this product: it is advertised as a waterproof caulk, but I needed to glue the sole of the beach sandals. Well, it worked and has been holding despite daily water exposure. It is reliable waterproof glue, highly recommended." —RKDR

Promising review: "I like the light consistency of this edge control. It doesn’t take much and did the job I was looking for it to do. I didn’t have any issues with flaking or dryness. My hair texture is different since it's been growing back since chemotherapy so honestly it doesn't take much for it." —FitSisterP

Its mascara-like design lets you simply brush the applicator along your hairs to help slick them back. If you want to try a wax stick, this is a great option too!
Promising review: "Absolutely love this product. I have to have my hair up often for work and this stuff makes it SO easy to clean it up and keep my baby hairs and frizz at bay in seconds. Literally just keep it in my bag and might need like one touch up in an eight-hour day. Just be careful about using too much! It will harden up if you apply tooo much but otherwise it felt very soft and comfortable for me." —Amazon Customer

Promising review: "I use this to clean my rings when I'm in a hurry and don't have time to soak them. The Diamond Dazzle Stik does a great job on my diamonds. They end up sparkly, shiny, and clean in just a few seconds. I use the product and then rinse the rings in steamy hot water. I bought the set of three, and it takes me a while to finish one pen, so I gave one to a friend. She loves it also. Highly recommended." —EMFM

Promising review: "The best callus grater ever! No, seriously people, this thing works!!! The calluses on my feet were so bad they looked like something that could snatch dinner out of a lake. I was skeptical at first because my feet were so bad but after using this amazing callus grater, I am sold. One use and my heels are completely soft. I wish I would have taken before and after pictures. I recommend grating with light steady pressure as I can see hard pressure might rip your heel off. But in all seriousness, this thing is a miracle worker and I highly recommend this product." —Jeff

Or just let that bodily hair see the light — up to you!
Promising review: "After burning through a couple of small shavers that used rechargeable lithium batteries that couldn't be changed and quickly gave out, I decided the heck with it and searched for a shaver that used regular batteries. I live near the beach and shave my legs often. Of course a manual hand razor gives a smoother shave, but this little handheld shaver can be used in a pinch and for touch-ups. I'm very happy with it. The price is right and it gives an acceptable shave with no pulling or nicking." —Mary

Definitely handy on these super hot sweaty days." —TaiFig

Promising review: "I looooove this pup spray so much! I read other reviews that it lasts a very long time and I was very skeptical about that.
