A cruelty-free nail polish remover that’ll change the mani-pedi game and put every other remover you’ve tried to shame (take it from me).

A bottle of the purple remover labeled "Genius Remover for gel, laquer, + hybrid" with Instagram Story text "The *fastest* remover!!"


Katy Herman/BuzzFeed

I know — nail polish remover is not one of those things that feels like an exciting impulse buy. In fact, it’s one of those products that everyone low-key hates but needs. But folks, let me tell you — I got a sample of this stuff along with some polish from Orly and did my nails that weekend. After one swipe, I said aloud, “This is the best remover I have ever used” (and that sentiment is echoed in the reviews on the product listing). I was sure I wasn’t using enough, but a few swipes to my nail took pretty much E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G off with zero effort! My nails were clean and ready to repaint in a minute or less, with no scrubbing. (The one exception to this when I’ve used it since has been with glitter polish, but that stuff is always tough). The remover itself is even a pretty purple color! The only thing I don’t love about it is the frustrating pop top, but that can easily be avoided by screwing off the cap like you do with most remover bottles.

Promising review: “Through the years I have tried an abundance of polish remover, only to be dissatisfied with them all….until I tried Orly! I am amazed at the speed and efficiency that this remover possesses! I used to use at least five cotton pads to remove my polish, but now with this I can do both hands with just one cotton pad. This was a very pleasant surprise for me and I’ve even ordered some for my mom.” —Pat70

Get it from Orly for $5.40.

A fun-for-all-ages Goat Yoga game complete with an inflatable goat and LOL-worthy yoga pose and goat-themed challenges for players to complete. Because at this point in quarantine, your fam needs something a bit fresher than Scrabble, Apples To Apples, and Gin Rummy (and none of those involve goats anyway).


Amazon

I once did yoga with actual goats, and let me tell you those suckers are heavy and like to chew your shoelaces, so this is a much easier (and indoor-friendly) way to get started.

Promising review: “I’ve played this only twice so far since I gave it to my daughter for Christmas and it was a big hit. Both times playing with groups of people, we couldn’t stop laughing. Really fun game for everyone. I happen to practice yoga and enjoyed the game, but so did people who’ve never done yoga before. Highly recommend if you like to play games with family and friends and are looking for something different. Makes a great gift too.” —LisaJ

Get it from Amazon for $22.50.

Super spicy ground habanero powder you can use to (literally) heat up every dish from meat to veggies to rice to soup. May I also ~pepper~ in the fact that it’s kosher, non-GMO, and sourced from environmentally responsible farmers?

The packet of ground yellow habanero with the ground spice, which is dark brown


Amazon

It’s from a Black woman-owned brand that specializes in sustainably produced African spices, powders, and baking mixes.

Promising review: “Oh my!!!! I love this so much. The smell is so intense and the flavor is well-preserved. The powder is of a dark color so I was worried the drying process might not have preserved the spiciness or flavor, but boy let me tell you. The flavor is superbly balanced with spiciness. I made scrambled eggs and muffins the first day and I love this so much. I’ve been looking for a decent habanero powder for a long time and I am so glad I found it!” —Da7mi

Or some crunchy garlic chili oil for adding just the right amount of gourmet spice to all your homemade meals and sure to make you (gar)lick your lips.


Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “Amazing. I had never tried chili oil prior to buying this incredible product, and it is much more than a chili oil. It’s a low-heat condiment that is fabulous on many things. From crackers with a sharp cheddar cheese spread to topping potatoes of any kind, as well as topping chicken, shrimp, and steak. It’s quite addicting and I wish I could buy a case at a time. If you desire more heat, add a touch of cayenne pepper. You won’t be sorry. This I promise.” —Boomer

A Billie razor starter kit, a cult fave shaving set that BuzzFeed Shopping editors talk about more than pretty much any other product (and we talk about a lot of products). The kit includes a razor, a magnetic holder, and two blades for under $10.


Natalie Brown/BuzzFeed, Kayla Suazo/BuzzFeed

You can also subscribe to get refill packs whenever you need!

Here’s what editor Emma McAnaw has to say about Billie: “I have VERY sensitive skin. As in, I so much as LOOK at a dull blade and suddenly I’m on a one-way trip to little red bumps. Until Billie, I had kind of just accepted that my bikini line was never going to be ~perfectly smooth~ no matter what. And yet! When I started shaving with these razors, I immediately noticed how comfortable the whole experience was. I’ll be honest and say I rarely use shaving cream (very responsible for someone with sensitive skin!) and it doesn’t even MATTER. The blades never nick me and I’ve actually seen fewer and fewer bumps, even in my ~most sensitive~ areas. I credit its charcoal shave soap that encases the five (!!!) blades so if you ‘forget’ cream, you’ll still get super smooth results. I’m pretty confident in saying if a total klutz like me has yet to do damage with these bbs, then everyone can benefit from these.”

A visual grocery list pad so you can just circle what you need and be able to check at the store at a glance — no more struggling to read your own handwriting (I feel ya). The rows are even organized by category and have spaces next to each to write down other items, so you won’t have to keep doubling back to an aisle you’ve already been in for something farther down the list.

The colorful pad with food icons arranged in categories from fruits to pet care to deli to snacks


Amazon

Promising review: “It really helped when we were out of a grocery item to just circle it on the list for the family, so when I ordered groceries I knew what we needed. It didn’t stop the family from putting empty cartons in the refrigerator, but at least they let me know that we were out. LOL.” —Live Laugh Love

Promising review: “One of the best card pocket holders I’ve bought. In total I’ve purchased five or six from Vandel. They’ve gotten wet, been in sand, and still stuck extremely well. The designs are super cute as well. I can comfortably fit four cards, sometimes five but it will stretch out.” —Brittany fristachi

A luxe, vegan, and cruelty-free nail polish made without artificial fragrances or 10 major chemicals (including DBP, formaldehyde, parabens, and camphor) but made *with* the right stuff to make it gorgeous and chip-resistant.

Mischo Beauty is a Black woman-owned nail brand that was created when the founder used her degree in chemistry to develop the kind of glam, high-quality, nontoxic polish she wanted but couldn’t find when she was pregnant.

Promising review (for Lacquer of Love, the dark purple shade): “NEW FAVORITE NAIL LACQUER. What a great deep plum color to own! I will be wearing this more often than I’d imagine. The formula is so easy to apply on nails. Two coats is all you need for that elegant and rich pigmented look. Try it for yourself — you’ll definitely want more than one color!” —josephine

A peach-scented silicone sponge that’ll make you ditch your gross traditional kitchen sponge for good. This resists odor and microbes, for a sponge more durable than Mr. SquarePants himself — and that dude can munch his own arms like popcorn and grow them back.

A reviewer photo of the orange, sudsy sponge in a pot


amazon.com

One reviewer even said it worked amazingly to de-tarnish silver!

Promising review: “If you want something cheaper than cellulose sponges, this is not it. But if you want a product that really does the job, look no further. The product is exactly what it advertises: no odor, no funky dye leaking out, and it cleans better than any scrubber or sponge I have ever used. I am still on the first one in the three-pack, and it has been several weeks. I can see some wear, but a cellulose sponge would have been in pieces by now. It has lightened slightly in color, but there is absolutely no odor. And what impresses me most about this scrubber is that it gets everything clean in no time. It doesn’t scratch any surface. I managed to easily remove coffee and tea stains from my grandmother’s cups in no time — even the heavy-duty scrubber sponges had not managed this task. And the old porcelain was undamaged. I find that because it doesn’t hold onto soap as tightly as cellulose sponges do, I might be using more dishwashing liquid than before, but my dishes come clean the first time so I am saving water and time. I will definitely purchase this product again.” —The Epistolary Dilettante

A beyond clever whisk with a scraper you’ll wonder how you ever baked without. Not only can you very satisfyingly swipe extra batter right off the wires to make sure none is wasted, you can also use the tool as a stand to prop up the whisk in a bowl or on the counter (…or take it off and use it to scrape any excess goodness out of the bowl).


amazon.com, Amazon

Promising review: “Excellent little attachment!!!! Love this. For batter and cakes, I used this and my whisk was the easiest cleanup in years. Hey, the hubby is not always around to run off with that whisk after I scrape the bowl of every last schmear. I needed something to help with cleanup and this item does it. Easy to clean, easy to store. Wow!!! I am going to buy a few for my friends — they have kids and grandkids who will love cooking with this! If you don’t have one yet, BUY ONE!! Wish I had been able to buy one 30 years ago!!” —LadyZana

This genius creation is from a woman-owned, Colorado-based shop that makes fabric alternatives to all sorts of disposable household products and donates 1% of proceeds to Climate Emergency Fund.

Promising review: “Absolutely in love with our bacon towel. In our quest to be more sustainable, I found it difficult to completely stop buying paper towels since we love bacon, and none of my unpaper towels quite did the trick. Enter the bacon towel, and we are now a 100% paper towel-free home! Great quality and easy cleanup!” —Heather

A handy Souper Cubes freezer tray that makes it ~souper~ easy to freeze a half or full cup portion of notoriously hard-to-freeze things like soup, sauces, or other liquid dishes and ingredients. Then just pop out as many cubes as you need for a meal or recipe and thaw!


Amazon, amazon.com

It’s BPA-free and dishwasher-safe, and it has fill lines on the side of the compartments for half and full cups as well as 125 and 250 ml if you prefer the metric life.

Promising review: “LOVE LOVE LOVE. My freezer is so much more organized now. Gone are the days of having to defrost an entire bag of chicken broth for one cup for a recipe. I now have perfectly portioned half-cup and one-cup blocks ready to go. They fit easily in freezer bags, take up less space, and make me incredibly happy. There was a lot of attention to detail put into the design and I particularly appreciate the wire inside the rim that holds everything steady — no more worrying about spilling all the liquid on the way to the freezer. Just a fantastic product all around. I purchased this and a cheaper version from another manufacturer at the same time, but returned the other product. This one is definitely worth the added cost.” —Kate

It is made by Free Period Press — a queer- and woman-owned business that makes adorable stickers and paper goods — and even has a space at the bottom to write down what you’re grateful for each day. 💕

Promising review: “This simple planner has a very useful layout, with a focus on getting tasks done. It’s undated so you can start at any time and skip days without wasting paper. It has great dot notepaper in the back, and hard-to-find top binding. I do wish the covers were stiffer, at least the back one, but all in all, I’d buy it again.” —Book Collector

Athena Club’s natural, plant-based, aluminum- and cruelty-free deodorant, which not only comes in pretty packaging but will make you take back pretty much everything bad you’ve ever said about natural deodorant. Trust me — it was my fave daily routine upgrade I made last year.

The pink cylindrical tube with the caption "Natural deo that actually works!" with a heart eyes emoji


Katy Herman/BuzzFeed

Two things I used to believe: 1) That putting on deodorant would never be something I looked forward to and 2) natural deodorants just didn’t work as well and I was stuck with my regular drugstore brand (rhymes with Schmecret) instead of the effective aluminum- and cruelty-free formula that was my white whale. But now, slap me in Cabin 6 and call me Annabeth Chase, because I’m a dutiful daughter of Athena (Club). The first thing I noticed when I got my sample of this magic stuff in the mail was the sleek and pretty packaging that feels all Insta-worthy on my countertop. Then, the smell — I really don’t like perfume-y, overpowering scents, but this was so mild and beautiful and natural-smelling (I picked scent No. 2, a rose, sage, vanilla, lime and cedarwood blend). But most importantly, it heckin’ WORKED. I will confess that I have skipped some shower days in quarantine with my family. I’m not going anywhere and my parents love me unconditionally, okay??? But I also feel totally fresh with this stuff on. My pits stay noticeably dry and smelling A-OK pretty much all day, even if they were pretty stinky to begin with (is this TMI??). And it achieves all that with really just a swipe — no need to apply a ton. And I actually look forward to putting this goodness on in the morning!

Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm, which just might make you ~kiss~ your usual balm buh-bye. It’s formulated with antioxidant-rich green tea and softening vitamin E. And that’s not to mention the SPF 25 your lips will wanna pucker up for, because sun safety is sexy (yes, even in winter!!!).

Three tubes of the balm in different flavors: black tea and blackberry, natural mint and shea butter, and shea butter and vitamin E


Amazon

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. ChapStick, Eos, Vaseline, expensive salves from Sephora, lip scrubs from Lush — probably over 50 products in the past 10 years. I’ve been using these Jack Black balms for the past six months or so, and my lips look soooo much better. Before, I had cracks and the layer of skin would constantly peel away. I had light scarring and discoloration due to years of dryness and peeling (so gross sorry!). Anyway, the true test of a good lip product is if it can withstand the winter. I live in the Midwest, and we had a particularly rough winter this year, very cold. However, as long as I was wearing this product, my lips were always protected and comfortable. I have six of these floating around my house/purse/work backpack. And I don’t ever see myself using another lip product.” —Cara

Hilarious yet practical pop-up fire hydrant pee pads that’ll not only look way less unsightly around your house than plain ones, but also be easier for your pup to find (and aim at).

Small dog sitting on square pad with red fire hydrant


amazon.com

Promising review: “Best pads I’ve used. Hydrant is a floor-saver! The little fire hydrant pops up automatically when you unfold the pad, and it has a contrasting color that allows them to see it (while looking really cute). It’s perfect size for a small dog to aim at, it’s absorbent so it doesn’t splash, and it’s small enough that girl dogs can share the pad without it getting in the way. I have two toy poodles, one boy and one girl. They boy would never make it onto the pad (and nearly ruined my floor) because he didn’t have anything to aim at. So I ended up creating my own hydrants out of cans wrapped in potty pads. They worked but it was a pain to create a new one each time I put out a new pad. This is so much better! I’m in love with these. Best of all, these are hands-down some of the best quality potty pads I’ve ever used. Liquid becomes a gel almost instantly so they don’t track wet footprints on the floor, and they absorb the smell.” —A. Platter

A roll-on headache and migraine relief stick, which has truly upgraded *my* life — I haven’t stopped talking about it since I first tried it and I don’t plan on stopping any time soon.


Katy Herman/BuzzFeed, Yi Yang/BuzzFeed

I started using this magical product (which is made with peppermint, spearmint, and lavender essential oils) a couple years ago and since then have told approximately 1,089,642 people about it. I keep one in my purse and one on my dresser, and I reorder before I’m actually close to running out. While it won’t kill a major migraine on its own, it feels super soothing and cooling. If I end up taking ibuprofen for my headache, this is really nice to use while it kicks in. Also, if I just have a slight headache or just the beginnings of one, a few swipes of this (lightly on my temples and forehead and as heavily as I want on my neck) can actually knock it out or delay it getting worse. It’s so great to help me get through my busy workdays and activities, and I really wish I’d had it during high school and college to help me get through the day then! Read my full review here.

Promising review: “I have no earthly idea why this works, but it brought me back from the dead after an 11-day headache. I found it worked better to rub it all over my hot pack, zap it in the microwave, and wrap it around the base of my neck. The aromatherapy was great, and it dulled my headache enough to restore my will to live. 5/5.” —Katie B.

A milk chocolate, red velvet, and marshmallow bar that your still-leftover Halloween candy (probably time to toss that?) can’t hope to compete with. This is the luxury treat you deserve in 2021.

A pair of sleek silicone mask applicator brushes with several benefits that’ll make a mask day more effortless (and therefore more relaxing): it evenly spreads a thick layer of product without any getting caught or wasted in bristles, it’s easy to clean, and reduces mess!

Promising review: “GAME-CHANGER! I love these! I no longer dread putting on my face products. I was using my fingers to apply the product to my face, and it was so messy and got in my nails too. When I came across these silicone brushes I knew I had to have them. They are amazing and the low price is a steal. These brushes really changed my routine. I use my facial products more often because I’m no longer worried about the annoying mess. The silicone brush is very flexible and spreads the product on my face nicely. Cleaning the brush is a simple task, just rinse and pat dry. Highly recommended!” —Wells Family

As-seen-on-TV Debbie Meyer GreenBags here to save you major waste and $$$. They can keep your produce fresher much longer and be reused eight to 10 times!!!

The reviewer comparison above is what two bananas — one kept in the bag and one not — looked like after four or five days!

Promising review: “I am a big warehouse shopper and in the past often couldn’t eat all those berries or all that lettuce before they went bad. So I followed the directions and made sure the produce was dry (lettuce, spinach, asparagus, and blueberries). For the lettuce and asparagus, saw a little condensation in the bag, so put a paper towel in the bag where moisture was accumulating. Two weeks later, the berries were almost as fresh as on day one. Lettuce was still crisp and crunchy and only a few pieces of spinach were starting to wilt. Asparagus were crisp as well. I would definitely recommend and will continue to try with other fruits and vegetables.” —BAS

A silicone massaging and shed-reducing cat brush to upgrade Fluffy’s grooming routine and help reduce shedding — thereby upgrading the state of your furniture 😅.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I’ve had my cat for 10 years and never really been able to brush her because she gets really mad and runs off. It didn’t matter much because she’s a shorthair, but now she’s getting old and having health problems. The other day I found a mat on her back and I knew I would have to figure it out. I ordered three brushes and this was by far the winner. I brushed her for a looooong time before she had enough and she was purring and drooling a ton. And now she feels soft and clean! My favorite part is the ergonomic design. You can conceal the brush in your hand really well and it kept her from running off at the sight of it. And because of the shape and how small it is, it was easy to get awkward areas like her neck and chest. Definitely recommend!” —C.A.T.

Clever pant waist extenders for making old jeans (that are just a little too tight) feel comfy again — or for making your fave trousers work during early pregnancy or after a medical procedure. And, of course, you can also use these to make real (read: nonsweat) pants more quarantine-level comfy.


Amazon

They can provide up to 2 inches of extra room!

Promising review: “They work great. I had a kidney transplant and the new kidney was put in around waistline, which made all my pants tight. I have several pairs I would’ve had to replace, but waist extenders did the trick.” —jde

Versatile silicone putty earplugs that are a huge step up from regular earplugs. You can mold them to get a perfect fit and use them for everything from snoozing to swimming — the obnoxious construction next door and your S.O.’s snores are no match for these babies.

BuzzFeed shopping editor Emma Lord loves these. She writes, “TBH, I swear by these so aggressively that I have them on a subscription. They’re like ear glue. My apartment is on a busy street and my upstairs neighbor is a noisy human being (does this count as a subtweet??) and once I pop these babies in I can barely hear a thing. Plus, my ears never get sore with these in like they do with headphones or other earplugs.”

Get six pairs from Amazon for $3.96.

Now go forth and rock it with these products by your side!
