Promising review: “I am so glad I bought this lamp out of the choices I was looking at. I love everything about it, even the way it was packaged is impressive, and it comes with a cleaning cloth. The variety of light options on this is incredible. I love how the light extends long to cover more area of my desk. I love how it folds down when I’m done using it if I want it out of the way. I love that it has a USB port on the back. I love the color and the looks. I bought it looking for something to give off ‘natural sunlight’ to help with the dark rainy days of the Pacific Northwest, but I also saw a review where they were using it to start seedlings, so I decided it would pay off to use it for that during the day and my desk during the evening. As soon as I set the lamp up on my desk I thought, ‘this lamp is not going off my desk!’ so I got right on Amazon and ordered another one within hours!” —PennyLQ4

A set of affordable, highly popular (seriously, these have nearly 40,000 popular reviews) wireless Bluetooth earbuds so you can multi-task to your heart’s content, whether it’s listening to spooky podcasts while you clean, chatting with your BFF on a walk around the neighborhood, or doing an at-home workout without waking up all your roomies.


amazon.com

These come with a wireless charging case that provides up to 14 hours of charge (with the earbuds able to play for 4+ hours with each full charge). The earbuds are also sweatproof and waterproof so you can use them during workouts or runs, and have a built-in mic so you can chat on the phone. Psst — these are also a great option for going outside in a mask, since it doesn’t have wires that’ll get tangled in the mask straps.

Promising review: “Five stars all the way around! I am loving everything about these earbuds! One of the best features about these is NO CORDS!! I have really long, thick hair and my previous Anker Bluetooth earbuds were good but had the wire connecting them and it was constantly a nuisance getting in the way or tangled in my hair, so its SUPER nice to not have to fight my hair or shirt, etc… with these ear buds. They look nice, the case is great, they are very comfortable to wear and the sound quality is fantastic. I can really hear the bass! I like that I can use the ear buds separately as I wear them at work for background music and get a full day out of the batteries by swapping them. I have used them for a couple calls and the person on the other end had no issues hearing me or with background noise so that’s a definite win! The noise cancellation is great, maybe too good, even if I pause my music when talking to someone I still sometimes have to take the bud out to be able to hear them properly but not a big deal, it’s great to drown everyone else out at the gym. My boyfriend was super impressed with them as well when I let him listen, he guessed they were double the price. I am very happy with this purchase!” —Elizabeth Good

Promising review: “Amazing. I love absolutely everything about this product. Does exactly what it says it’s going to do.” —catag1749

Another promising review: “I have no idea how to quantify how well this works, but I haven’t needed my inhaler since we got it. Our neighbors (older apartment building) are heavy smokers and my wife and I were both bothered by it. It feels better now. We’ve been leaving this running whenever we’re home. The touch sensor works well to turn it on and off. It does make some noise, but it’s just kind of a low ambient fan sound that’s easy to ignore. As an unexpected bonus it’s really really good at filtering pet smells. I have two stinky male rats in the middle of rat puberty, their bedding gets changed every other day, and when they were due for a cleaning you used to be able to smell it across the room. You can’t anymore unless you’re right next to the cage. I honestly didn’t have high hopes for this but it’s worth it for that alone.” —Chris

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “I love everything about this tote! I plan to purchase other colors as the season changes. I also purchased an organizer so I can grab everything at once and switch bags. The tote stands on its own but still has a soft, ‘floppy’ feeling. It’s not stiff like some bags. The one inside pocket is the perfect size for my phone and it holds it without making the bag topple over. The single magnetic closure is nice so the bag isn’t completely open, but I don’t have to mess with a zipper every time I want to put something in or take something out. The handles are slightly shorter than most, but they’re still easy to throw over your shoulder.” —funwhentired

Plus a purse organizer insert you can easily slide into any bag, from a tote to a designer dig, for instant pockets to organize your life. Another perk? If you’re switching out their purse, all you have to do is slide the organizer out and pop it in with all your stuff raring to go.

Promising review: “Wonderfully well-made and efficient product. I love everything about these. Very clever design that allows air to escape, but does not allow air in. In addition, there is a very well fitting air pump that allows the user to ‘suck’ air out after checking the fermentation process. Infinitely better than plain mason jar lids, or even mason jar plastic lids.” —Dave

I saw a homemade version online so I searched and found the Drillbrush. A drill and some cleaner later and the shower looks brand new! So easy and no muscle strain! The toughest part was waiting for the drill battery to recharge so I could continue the transformation from dingy to DANG that looks great! The different sizes get into all angles of the shower. I will never scrub by hand again! Can’t wait to try it on other surfaces!!” —Carrie

You can easily mount this toy to a flat wall or a corner using the adhesive strips included, and even comes with a little bit of catnip you can put in it to initially attract ’em.

Promising review: “I love everything about this product, or should I say, this company. I’m sure other people make corner brushes, but I feel they went a step further. You can tell they love cats. For one thing, they include catnip for inserting into the little catnip vents on the brush, they include the adhesive (which we didn’t use…we used screws because we have an aggressive kitty) and they even made the box to look like a sardine can with instructions to turn it into an active treat toy. I’m just so impressed. I’ve signed up for their newsletter. I can’t wait to see what other fun things they make. I suppose I should say that our cat loves the brush. She must have sat there and rubbed for five minutes when she first discovered it. We didn’t buy it because it will brush her, we did it because she loves to rub her chin on corners. I regularly have to clean the wall corners because she’s a black cat and leaves black marks on the wall. 😄 No more wall cleaning!” —Erica K.

A suuuper popular Bio-Oil made with vitamins A and E, chamomile, and lavender — you may recognize it as a product a lot of people use to help fade scars (both old and new), soothe cracked and dry skin, and help moisturize without affecting your pores, but people are also using it in quarantine to help with dry and painful skin on their hands from hand-washing and sanitizing.

FWIW re: scars, though, this stuff really works. I had thyroid surgery a few years ago and Bio-Oil took me from looking like I’d stumbled out of the Red Wedding to virtually no detectable scar within a few months. All I did was apply it once in the morning and once at night.

Promising review: “I love everything about it, especially applying it at night after a relaxing bath, right before going to bed. It smells wonderful and my skin feels like baby skin.” —Derek Schmiedel

Another promising review: “I bought this for my scars but because of the current COVID-19 crisis I have been washing my hands so much that they are painfully dry. Hand cream hasn’t helped enough so I decided to use the Bio-Oil on them and even after the first application they felt SO much better! I’m glad I bought the big bottle!” —L. Strand

A rapid egg cooker that I am warning you right now is going to become your only personality trait. It can make soft, medium, *and* hard-boiled eggs in addition to poaching, scrambling, and making omelets out of them. This gizmo is like a thousand potential brunches in one.


Amazon, amazon.com

I’ve owned one of these babies and have faithfully used it every week for upward of two years, and especially love it during quarantine — it simplifies breakfast because I know no matter what weird assortment of groceries I’m working with, there are precooked eggs to add some protein to it (I like mine medium-boiled 🍳). If my dinner is boring or seems like it needs a little extra “oomph” to it, I’ll throw in an egg from this too. Some reviews note that the alarm on it is a little loud, but the new models have significantly decreased the volume and sing a little song instead!

Promising review: “You think to yourself, ‘I don’t really need an egg cooker.’ Think again! You need this tiny, but mighty gadget! I was afraid it would take up a lot of space because I didn’t look at the dimensions. It’s tiny! Even in my very small kitchen, with little counter space, I’m able to keep it out. I got it in the aqua color. It looks great with my decor! Not only does it look great, it works great! It makes the perfect, so easy to peel, hard boiled eggs every time! If you hesitate to boil eggs because you dread peeling them, dread no more! I cannot believe the ease of peeling these eggs. I made an omelette. It turned out perfect. I made poached eggs. They turned out perfect. I love everything about this egg cooker and highly recommend it!” —Dani T

Essence’s Lash Princess mascara for instant length so effective, it will make your eyelashes look like they could take flight (while still looking natural enough that they won’t be mistaken for falsies).


Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

Hello, that is my face above, because I bought into the hype of over 35,000 positive 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 live long day (I spent all of this ridiculously hot pandemic summer wearing it, so I can speak to that), 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: “I’ve been using this mascara for about a month now. I love everything about it. It takes maybe two coats to achieve the full, voluminous look I love. Other mascaras (even high end ones) takes several coats to achieve that look. Throughout the day it doesn’t budge. I don’t get those fallen flakes. It is quite difficult for me to remove with just water and my face wash, I do go in with a cleansing oil prior to washing my face when wearing this.” —PearlMandala

A set of hypoallergenic brushed microfiber sheets so popular they’ve amassed over 100,000 positive reviews.

Promising review: “I love everything about these sheets, from a great experience with the vendor to the quality of the product. The sheets are high quality and incredibly soft. It’s a pleasure to get in bed when they’re in use (and not just because I really enjoy my sleep!). The purple color is a deep, rich purple – exactly what I hoped for. The sheets are nicely stitched and finished. The fitted sheet pocket is deep enough to cover the mattress and the memory foam topper I have on top of my mattress. I ordered these in October (this review is written in February). In this time, they continue to wash well, they’ve held up without shrinking, and they didn’t bleed in the laundry. I’m restraining the urge to order a second set – because I don’t really need three sets of sheets… Even if I want a second set of this brand!” —K.P.

A sunrise simulation clock to trick your human brain into thinking you’re already dappled in the light of a bright, sunshiny day when you wake up, even if you’re up before the sunrise or nowhere near a window.

A sunrise alarm clock in three stages of lighting up from dim to brighter to brightest over the course of a half hour

You can sync this alarm clock with an app on your phone (or with an Alexa or Google Home), and it will gradually brighten the room with red-tinted light designed to fight grogginess in the minutes leading up to your wakeup.

It also has customizable sounds to wake you up, like “Hawaiian waves.”

Promising review: “I love everything about this alarm clock. The sound and light settings are great! Wake up is slow and easy. I wake up to chirping birds!

My only wish is that it had a waist strap to help distribute the weight when the bag is full/heavy. Maybe the next iteration will. I still would highly recommend this bag to anyone of any age who carries a laptop, chargers, and other essentials like a small umbrella, gum, books, folders, a water bottle, etc. It all fits nicely and has its own place.
