BuzzFeed editor Kayla Boyd swears by this mascara and said: “As someone who isn’t a big fan of false lashes (the glue irritates my eyes and I’m terrible at applying them) this budget-friendly holy grail does the trick for both lengthening and volumizing my lashes. It uses a conic shape fiber brush to help the mascara apply evenly without getting too clumpy. Plus, it’s cruelty-free!” Peep more deets in her full Essence Lash Princess mascara review.

Promising review: “I saw a recommendation on TikTok and thought for $5, why not?! I love this mascara! I have used other high end brands of mascara and this honestly gave me more volume and length! I recommended it to two other family members and they love it too!” —Hannah

Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

2. A pack of cleaning tablets that’ll clean your dishwasher for you, because I bet you didn’t know you should be cleaning it. These will break down lime and mineral buildup so your dishes come out looking as sparkly as they do in all those dish soap commercials.

Promising review: “After using this product, I am happy to report that my $5 investment saved me over $500. I was ready to replace my dishwasher due to super cloudy glasses, residue, and just not getting clean. Then I became aware that the water softener was no longer doing its job, so I had the rental company replace it. Dishwasher performance improved somewhat. I decided to do two more loads before deciding to purchase a new one. Then I saw a product test review for Affresh in a magazine. I was ordering some stuff from Amazon anyway, so I added that to my order. When it came, I tossed one of the tablets into the bottom of the full machine, per instructions, and ran the regular cycle. I did not expect the results I got! My glassware that I thought was permanently etched and ruined came out like new. Same with cutlery. The difference is unbelievable. I will use this faithfully on a monthly basis, as recommended. I can even put it on my subscribe and save order, so I will get a new pack every six months. I am amazed!” —Sheila

3. A no-scrub weekly shower cleaner to stop mold and mildew from forming before they have a chance to take over your entire bathroom. Just spray and walk away — your future self will be SO grateful.

Promising review: “Powerful enough to cut through soap scum on my shower door!! I was amazed…I could see the streaks within minutes as the product collected and ran down the inside of the shower door. I used it again the next day to finish off what was there and then weekly since. I have shiny, pretty doors again without scrubbing once!! Also, the scent is so subtle that it’s hard to detect. Very happy to recommend this to all!” —Greg n Jeni

Get it from Amazon for $19.74.

4. A pair of teeth-whitening pens that are SO much easier to use than traditional white strips. Just swipe it on and let the gel sit for 30 minutes — and eventually you’ll see years and years stains start to disappear. This is a must for all my fellow coffee connoisseurs.

Promising review: “You need this! A little goes a really long way. I love this product and I’m still on the first pen I can truly see a difference!” —T. 

Get a pack of two from Amazon for $19.99.

5. A set of cleaning K-Cups to remove all of the built-up grime in your Keurig machine. You’d be surprised how much coffee residue and old coffee grinds can get stuck in the dispenser.

Promising review: “I bought this product because the needle in my Keurig 2.0 keeps clogging, causing inconsistent brew and taste. These cleaning cups fixed both of my issues and I especially liked that it was really quick and easy to use… I put the cleaning pod in and ran one cycle, then took the pod out and ran a rinse cycle to clean out any leftover grinds. FAST, EASY, and GREAT results…VERY HAPPY!!” —Corey West

6. An octopus-shaped blackhead remover that puts in serious work. Just scrub it over your nose and watch as it lifts all the clogged dirt and oil out of your pores.

Check it out on TikTok here!

“After just two days of use, this adorable little octopus has done wonders for me, smells great too. Here’s how I used it: I wore down the stick just a little to where the texture from the salt is visible, scrubbed around on my face so there was plenty of product, then I used my fingers to gently massage all the gunk away. Rinse, pat dry, and enjoy the softness. Highly recommended for people with sensitive skin like myself.” —LuckLocust

Get it from Amazon for $12.50

7. A pack of multipurpose dermaplaning razors you can use to shape your eyebrows and remove fine hairs. You can also use it to remove any stubborn peach fuzz so your foundation will glide on more seamlessly than ever.

Promising review: “I used to pay a professional to dermaplane my face once a month to remove the peach fuzz, which makes me look older and makes the makeup application more cumbersome. I searched for years for a home product to use to save money and time. This is the closest I have been able to get to professional dermaplaning in the convenience of my home, on my time/schedule, and at a fraction of the price. Love it!” —SEM1969

Get a three-count from Amazon for $5.67 (also available in a pack of nine).

8. An exfoliating glove with immediate results you can actually see — seriously, the dead skin just clumps up and rolls right off of your body. It’s somehow satisfying and gross at the same time.

Promising review: “You might think you’re exfoliating your skin but TRUST ME, you haven’t been. You’ll be SHOCKED and maybe even a little disgusted when you see how much skin comes off on these gloves the first time you use them. Take a long, warm shower, then, with no soap, use these mitts after you’re all rinsed off. Scrub your body well in a circular motion. Then look at the mitts! They’ll look like they’ve been sprinkled with flour! You’ll never get that much skin off your body again with subsequent uses, so don’t forget to look because it’s incredible. And get ready to be bowled over when you dry off. Hello softness!!!” —isaidso

Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (also available in a two-pack).

9. A carpet cleaner that’ll clean up everything from spaghetti mishaps in the living room to coffee spills in your car. This will basically be a lifesaver if you accidentally spilled that takeout you were eating while binge-watching the new season of RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars.

Promising review: “It’s a miracle in a bottle. My German shepherd mix decided to pull a black fountain pen out of my purse and chew it to pieces on my beige carpet while I was sleeping — this cleaner lifted the stain and now it’s like the devastation my dog caused never happened! As soon as I saw it lifting the ink, I got back on Amazon and bought more bottles. I will never let myself run out of this. I use it in my Bissell carpet cleaner for some crazy good cleaning power. I’ve become that weird lady who goes around singing the praises of a cleaning product. No regrets.” —L. Logan

Get it from Amazon for $12.44+ (available in two sizes and various packs).

10. First Aid Beauty’s KP Bump Eraser Body Scrub Exfoliant, which has become a holy grail for people dealing with keratosis pilaris and all other bumpy skin-related issues. The mix of chemical and physical exfoliators will slough away dead skin and have you feeling silky smooth in just a few uses.

Promising review: “I saw this on TikTok and Instagram. I decided to try it and it really works. I used it on my thighs and upper arms. I noticed a difference the first time and even more the second time!!! Fabulous product. Worth every penny.” —Launa

Get it from Amazon for $12+ (available in three sizes). 

11. A L’Oréal repairing hair treatment that takes just eight seconds — yes, eight seconds! — to repair damage and restore shine. Apply it after shampoo but before conditioner and let the amino acids and “lamellar water technology” work their magic to smooth your hair without weighing it down.

Promising review: “I don’t usually do reviews on products, but for this one I absolutely have to. I have 3c type hair and struggle with a lot a breakage, unmanageability, and moisture. When my mom mentioned this product to me, I didn’t take her seriously because of the simple fact that we have two completely different hair textures. I never would have thought this brand would work on my hair … I have never in my 22 years felt my hair like this. I feel like I have a completely different head of hair. This product is so amazing and I will FOREVER be using this product in my hair regimen.” —Theressa Hailey

Get it from Amazon for $8.97.

12. A flexible coil lint and dust brush so you can finally reach all the dust in your dryer vent and the crumbs that are hiding underneath your fridge and oven. I’m shuddering just thinking about what’s living under there.

Promising review: “I use one in the dryer filter area and one under the refrigerator. They get dust I can’t get any other way. I gave five stars for durability even though I’ve had them for only a short time. They feel sturdy to last long enough for me.” —ASF

Get a pack of two from Amazon for $8.95.

13. A foot file for anyone who hates summer because their feet are never ready for sandal weather. This grater will grind away at calluses and have your heels and toes looking silky smooth in no time.

Promising review: “OMG, these should be standard issue to every human. I’ve bought them all, the cheap foot files, the expensive ones, the Ped Egg and even a foot file from that direct sales nail wrap company. None of those remotely compare to this one. I thought I was reduced to course heels forever; no more! With just one use my heels are fabulous! The callouses this thing removed was absolutely disgusting, but i couldn’t be happier. You won’t be disappointed!!” —JMart

Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

14. An all-purpose scrubber kit to turn your power drill into the ultimate scrubber you never knew you needed. The nylon bristles won’t leave behind any scratches, so you can scrub away without worrying about ruining your tub.

Promising review: “I bought this on a whim because my walk-in shower is just a pain to clean. I’m 51 and I guess I’ve just been old school with how I clean, hand scrubbing for years. The FIRST time I used this to clean my shower it took five minutes AND it scrubbed my shower more clean than it has been in years. In the corners, the floor, the glass door…everything came out squeaky clean. I’m NEVER cleaning my shower by hand again.” —Terry

Get it from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in six bristle stiffnesses).

15. A box of pore-tightening, skin-lifting face masks — it’ll make you look like a terrifying zombie until you rinse it off, but it’s worth it for the pore tightening and complexion brightening benefits! If you live with anyone, maybe just give them heads up before you apply.

Promising review: “I have never written a review before but I am compelled to do so now. Let’s start with what my 41-year-old face looked like. I had bumps, tiny bumps all over my skin, especially my forehead. My skin NEVER felt smooth even with the prescriptions I was give to help with these tiny bumps. Rosacea = bad bad bad. So bad that it was actually causing my cheeks to have what appeared to be thickening skin. Wrinkles, some that were quite deep. My pores were friggin huge and getting bigger day by day it seemed like. I know that it says to use this product every three days. I chose to go with every single day for the first box of eight. The results were so amazing I decided on everyday for the second box. Even more amazing results. EVERY SINGLE ISSUE LISTED ABOVE NO LONGER EXISTS!!!! I moisturize deeply after rinsing and my face looks absolutely amazing. My face did not even look like this at 30. I am hooked and I will be buying no less than three packs every single payday so I can stock up on this stuff in case they ever decide to quit selling it. If I had 10 stars available to rate I would use them and more!” —Amazon Customer
