Promising review: “Great set of equipment for a fully body workout. These pieces helped me focus on my arms, abs, thighs, and booty! Bonus, all of the equipment is small and easy to store since I don’t have much space in my current apartment.” —Reviewer
Promising review: “I really like this cookbook and I am no cook, but this book makes me feel like I am! Step-by-step instructions that don’t overwhelm. It’s so practical for me as a mom of three boys! My husband was able to help with the meal prep on the weekend and then during the busy week, boom, I have fresh DELICIOUS dinner cooking IN THE OVEN in about 5 mins. I’ve had time to clean up kitchen, set table and enjoy my family without slaving away everyday in the kitchen for dinner! I’m going to start doubling the recipes so we can all have lunch the next day too. My boys have loved all the recipes! Fed and Fit delivers AGAIN! Life hack cook book for sure!” —Candace
Promising review: ” AMAZING curling wand! I’m a hairdresser and I’ve tried it on many different types of hair and it works perfect. The different attachment sizes makes this such a good deal for the price. Works better than others I’ve tried that have been 3x the price! Also leaves hair smooth and prevents frizz.” —Genesis
Promising review: “I was skeptical about this product, but it worked really well! Especially on the little crevices around the emergency break and gear shifter. I’d recommend this cleaning gel to everyone.” —Panda H.
“I love waffles but there’s so much more you can use a waffle iron for. I’ve made paninis, quesadillas, grilled cheese, cake, brownies, fritters. The best is cinnamon rolls. You can cook them in half the time and the indentations from the iron keep the icing from falling onto the plate. I use mine multiple times a week.” —aestainback
Promising review: “This thing is great! I use one section to hold a bottle of windshield washer fluid, another to hold all my reusable grocery bags, and the biggest one to hold anything from a bag of groceries, or smaller packages — the things that typically would slide around all over back there while driving. The quality is great, super sturdy! I know it’s going to hold up for a long while! I’m glad I paid a bit extra in this category of items for the quality.” —Daivd A
Promising review: “I bought these to replace the lids on my Pyrex because they were all cracked. I have multiple sized Pyrex including rectangular ones. These lids are thin and stretchy which work perfectly around pretty much any dish. Even though they are all circular they stretch to fit the rectangular ones great!” —Matza
You can truly customize your box based off food preferences and any foods you want to avoid.
Promising review: “The first day I wore these was amazing I felt an immediate difference! Before I got my bands I would be in constant paint from plantar fasciitis and poor arches! I feel the lift and support in these bands more than my special arch supports from my podiatrist. Hopefully I won’t need anymore cortisone shots as long as I have these on my feet.” —mlenz
Promising review: “I suffer from chronic foot pain. Unbearable! My aunt is a big fan of these specific foot pads, she had tried a couple others she found on Amazon, but said the others dont stick too well when her feet get sweaty. She mentioned that these stick all day. Tried them myself, I am a HUGE fan. Not only do they stick to my often moist feet without problems, they relieve so much pain! Will buy several more.” —Roy Rosell
Comes with a beechwood spatula, custom stainless-steel steamer basket, modular lid, and of course, the pan.
“I love my Our Place pan. It’s a beautiful sage color that isn’t an eyesore on my stovetop. I also really love the steamer basket, which is great for frozen dumplings, and the nesting spatula. No more sauce and grease dripping from the spoon all over the counter!” —Melanie Aman, BuzzFeed Shopping editor
Promising review: “I typically do not write reviews but, I love this stuff. The first night I fell asleep faster and stayed asleep. My daughter also tried it and had the same experience. And, I LOVE the smell. I’d wear it during the day if it didn’t make me sleepy.” —Antonio
“I bought this bike just as the pandemic was starting this spring, and it was a *great* choice. I put it together in nooooo time flat, with the help of a handy YouTube video (as suggested by one of the reviewers). And the fold-up size is great, but the bike is sturdy and has great features for the price! I love the cushioned seat, which is muuuuuch comfier than most exercise bike seats I’ve sat on.” —Maitland Quitmeyer, BuzzFeed Shopping editor
Promising review: “I love them so much. It’s vibrant and buildable. It gives off an ombré effect when applied well, and honestly I use it as a cheek blush stain too sometimes.” —Kimberly Mendiola
The Intimina Lily Cup provides up to 12 hours protection, covers a light to medium flow, is made of medical grade silicone, and comes in two sizes.
It’s simple! Just attach the Tile to your most misplaced items and download their app. The second you can’t find something, open the app, and tap to find. It has a 400-ft Bluetooth range, a loud ring, and a replaceable battery.
Promising review: “I leave my belongings everywhere. I have a tile for my keys and all of my purses. I have saved endless hours of frustrated searches. I will never be without Tile in my life.” —Robyn
Promising review: “Many of the flours and similar products I use come in plastic bags (see photo showing Bob’s Red Mill rice flour and Schar bread crumbs). The bags are frequently unstable if you try to stand them up. These cleverly designed stands make it much easier to scoop out whatever is needed without spilling. I was surprised and pleased by how sturdy and adjustable they are.” —Skyhawk
Before painting your nails, you just swipe this around the edges and cuticles and let it dry. Then, if you make a mistake, you can just peel it off and pretend it never happened! I won’t tell.
Promising review: “This product is great. I wish I’d known about it sooner. It would’ve saved me so much money on manicures. I’m horrible at painting nails and always get polish everywhere, which is why I’ve always paid for manicures. I bought this and it works awesome. If I get anything anywhere besides the nail, I can just peel it off. It’s a little liquidy, so you have to experiment with how much you need, but once you get the hang of it, it’s great.” —Brittany N.
Promising review: “This desk is an office in its own right with the ability to stand up or sit down as well as the USB ports. Very simple assembly. Well made.” —Amy C
This charming small biz creates vegan deodorant, skincare, and zero waste haircare products you can feel good about.
Promising review: I have never in my life found a natural deodorant that actually works. This stuff is the best. Also, plastic free packaging? What could better? Thank you, thank you, thank you. I am going to buy this forever. Thanks for making a great product!” —Rae
Get it from Meow Meow Tweet for $14 (available in lavender and tea tree scents and three sizes).
Promising review: “I have a very heavy, large purse that is a bottomless pit. One time I put my purse on the back of my chair at a cafe and the whole chair flipped over, that is how heavy my bag is. I was looking for something so that I could hook my purse on things so it wasn’t sitting on the floor and was more accessible. I love this little gadget. I have used it on everything from bathroom stalls to tables to grocery carts. This thing really grips. All of my girl friends love it and have gotten them for themselves.” —Jennifer
Promising review: “I have oily skin so I really need help haha, but I also have super sensitive skin. I wanted something that was gentle and contained good ingredients, and I think I found it. I will definitely be ordering again. With this product my makeup easily lasts 12 hours and I feel like it helps it to look smoother as well.” —Melanie P.
Promising review: “HOLY SMOKES. I wasn’t expecting this product to work so well. Literally 10 seconds after spraying and gently stretching as the directions suggested, this was the difference! I let it hang for another 15 minutes with a subtle improvement, but the first few seconds after were mind-blowing.” —Desiree
The application works on Windows, macOS, and Linux, and has apps for iOS, Android, and Android TV. It also has encrypted proxy extensions for Chrome and Firefox. Secure up to six devices!
“The avocado tool from OXO. I was always so afraid I was going to slip and slice my hand trying to get the pit out, but this tools makes it so easy! The top part is a knife to cut the avocado and the bottom helps to scoop out the avocado into nice slices. Even my mom who is totally against kitchen gadgets with only one purpose loves this tool!” —kg73
Promising review: “I cannot say how much to this day I absolutely love this product. As far as products I would never give up in my life, this is 100% one of them. I couldn’t live without this anymore and have recommended it to so many people. It eliminates loose change in your car, helps you start to save your change a little better, helps with drive thru’s or places you could use exact change to save a buck (or $20), and has helped me in so many more situations. Over two years, four different cars, and more then a thousand dollars thru it it still functions exactly like day #1. The springs still work great despite how much change has been through it, being carried and dropped, moving between houses and dorms, and just general abuse like any object in your car. It’s a great gift or something to help someone with a messy car. Absolutely recommend!” —NickDeMartin
Promising review: “I had peeling, weak nails for years. I tried everything. I bought this in February and this size bottle lasted a bit more than a month with religiously applying it 2-3 times a day. I was really seeing great improvement so I bought another bottle in late March. By May, all the peeling had grown out and my nails were getting stronger every day. I then bought the big 4-oz refill bottle because I never wanted to run out of it again! Cannot recommend this stuff enough!” —Diana
Promising review: “At first I thought it was going to be greasy, but after rubbing it in it is so smooth and moisturizing, and doesn’t leave a greasy sheen at all. I have very sensitive skin, and this has been not at all irritating while still having a really nice fruity smell. Love it!” —Magdalene P.
Promising review: “With Barkeepers Friend, these can work miracles. Brought some really badly tarnished and burned on stainless steel pots back to life did take some elbow grease but that’s to be expected amazing.” —Jonboy12
