Promising review: “I am so happy with my Echo Dot and Alexa. It’s something I never knew I needed until I had it. Now, I can’t see myself without it. It has so many features. It’s really a helping hand with remembering events coming up. It turns my lights on and off and works great with my ring doorbell. Now, I don’t have any smart plugs in my house but definitely will be getting them just so I can use my Echo Dot and Alexa more. My kids love talking with Alexa and asking her questions. They tell her to play songs and all we are hooked on this technology. Now, I am strongly thinking of getting the Eco Show 8 to add to my home. —Fredrian
Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (originally $39.99+; free shipping; available in four colors and with a Smart Plug and/or Smart Bulb add-ons).
Promising review: “We love these and have multiple in our house. With COVID and everyone working from home/doing school, they are really nice. I can drop in on my daughter to make certain that she is attentive in class. I can talk to my husband and make dinner and lunch plans all while never leaving my home office. We love these. My family will drop in on us as well. My sister and her daughter have one at their homes so we love them for that also.” —Moni4u2nv
Get it from Amazon for $44.99+ (originally $89.99+; available in two colors and four additional add-ons).
Promising review: “I bought this for my 3-year-old daughter who really likes puzzles and games. The pictures are clear and very pretty, and they are printed on thick boards like puzzles. There are two different pairs of almost every Disney princess imaginable (excluding Elsa, Anna, and Moana) and other minor characters from Disney movies. My daughter loves this game and plays with it almost every night. We change the level of difficulty depending on her state (hahaha). For example, when she is tired or distracted, we just use four pairs of cards at a time, but then maybe 11 or more pairs when she is playing well. There are enough pairs of cards in the set that even older children should find the game challenging. All in all, a very satisfactory purchase!” —Momaholic
Get it from Amazon for $5.92 (available in nine themes including one dedicated to Frozen II and another for Marvel characters).
Promising review: “I bought this product because wearing a face mask makes my glasses fog, even with the metal strip to form around the bridge of my nose. It works all day with only one application unless I have been doing a lot of activity, then I might have to re-apply. Just spray it on the clean lenses of your glasses then wipe dry with a clean dry lintless cloth, as simple as that. I was so impressed that I gave my second bottle to my team members for them to use. Delivery was fast. I highly recommend this product from this company. I would not hesitate to buy this again when I need more in the future.” —Tonya Crippen
The shimmers are made with shea butter, beeswax, and antioxidant-rich fruit oils to hydrate and nourish lips. They’re also dye-, paraben-, fragrance-, and sulfate-free.
Promising review: “Moisturizing and pretty!! I love the rhubarb one and ordered different colors. It feels a little tingly like peppermint (which it does have).” —Bre
Promising review: “I wear size 10 W, leaning toward 10.5 W. The size chart said I should get the 9–10 but going by reviews, I went to the next up. I work from home and constantly wear slippers. So far, I have not thought about my feet for days. They’re not hot, cold, sweaty, rubbing, or poking. They stay on great and I’m glad I went up a size.” —Angie
Promising review: “They’re the comfiest things I’ve ever put on my feet. These slippers feel like a hug on my feet. They have a hard bottom so you can wear them out. The top part is so incredibly soft!!! I love these! If you’re worried about sizing, then size up.” —Cyndi Lundeberg
Heads-up: This tablecloth is sheer and meant to give the look of spiderwebs all over the table. The “background” you see in photos either another tablecloth offering a second layer and color OR the color of the table itself.
Promising review: “This ties my entire apartment together during the Halloween season! It looks incredible and also makes my table look better in general, will be sad taking it off when Halloween is over.” —Melissa
Get the tablecloth from Amazon for $9.99 (available in four styles, multiple shapes, and multiple sizes).
Promising review: I must say this is a great product for a great price. It adds the protection I need from scratches when I take my AirPods in and out of my purse and when I lay them around. The name customization is nice and the font is neat. However, I did order two cases and one of my cases did not have the name centered. I was able to reach out to the seller and they were prompt and responsive about being sure to fix it and they allowed me to keep my original one, which I thought was very courteous of them even though I was ready to ship it back! I received my order within a reasonable time and I received my replacement just as fast. The keychain that attaches to the case is sturdy and handier than I thought. The AirPod cables are great for around the neck usage and it makes them harder to drop or lose while working out or doing a lot of moving. I would buy again and again from this seller. Quality product and customer service.” —Shakeeya
Promising review: “My fiance’s fingers shrank! The ring was a bit too big and we didn’t want to lose it. These adjusters worked perfectly so that she eventually didn’t even notice it. The different sizes are helpful and it was easy to use. Are they a forever fix? I don’t know but they definitely helped until the ring was resized.” —Amazon Customer
Promising review: “Made a perfect waffle every time. Made me smile and reconnect with the fun of cooking. This was so easy to use and fun!” —Rhinestonelife
Promising review: “I loved it when I was little (still do!), my son loved it, and now it’s my 3-year-old grandson’s favorite! The texture, the colors, and even the smell brings back great memories. I purchased these specifically because they were the small cans. My grandson never had Play-doh before and I had no clue if he would even like it, so I figured we’d start small. What was I thinking?! He LOVED it. For a toddler, I prefer these smaller 2-ounce cans. They’re the perfect size for little hands with just the perfect amount of Play-doh. I also like the portability of the smaller cans. I can’t imagine handing a toddler 10 full-size cans and just letting him have at it. With these, you can do exactly that. I just purchased another 10-pack because we’re finally running a little low after making dinosaurs and leaving them out to harden and then play with. 🙂 Play-doh should be a part of every kid’s childhood!” —Diane K.
Promising review: “It is the only thing I am eating and drinking out of!! It’s too cute and totally makes you feel like a bad-to-the-bone witch. It’s so cute when you can see hot coffee steaming out of it. Love it .” —Brooke
Quip will automatically deliver a new brush head and battery every three months for $5 with free shipping if you subscribe to the refill plan.
Promising reviews: “Prior to this, I was using a manual toothbrush. I didn’t wanna splurge on a very expensive electronic brush. So I bought this one (in copper) in March 2017 and I’ve been using it until today! It died and I’m sure that — since I have a subscription — I could have gotten it replaced butttt I wanted the cute pink one. I’ve noticed a big difference in my teeth with them being/feeling much cleaner. I’ve noticed the dentist not having to ‘scrape’ them clean at visits and my dentist is loving the way my teeth look. My fave part of this brush is that every 30 seconds it notifies you, so I can brush my teeth in four quadrants allowing me to get a better/more even clean. I will 100% continue using Quip and recommend it to everyone!!” —MarissaCamilla
Get it from Target for $40 (available in four colors and with an Allstate two-year electronics protection plan for $4.99).
Green Gobbler is plant-based, biodegradable (yayyy environment!), odorless, and non-corrosive so it won’t damage your pipes in the process.
Promising review: “OK… So I have to do a little review on this product BECAUSE I have had a stopped-up kitchen sink and have LITERALLY tried EVERYTHING down to the industrial products with NO luck. I decided to go on Amazon and read a few reviews. This is the one I decided to go with. I only used one chamber, let it sit for an hour, and then used boiling water. My sink is NO LONGER stopped up!!! I saved a plumber bill and this was $11.97. HUGE win for this woman!!” —Tabpeach
Promising review: “AMAZING!!! I am seriously beyond impressed with this product. I’ve never had dry or cracked heels until recently and I’ve tried everything I could find to get rid of them! This is all you need!!! I literally opened the box and did this in less than a minute! I’ll never use anything else! It’s even better than professional pedicures!!!” —Kindle Customer
Promising review: “These have to be my absolute favorite pens! I use them for almost everything from notes at school to the forms I have to sign. The pens come in a variety of colors which really allow me to color code and organize my notes and events on my calendar and in my planner. These pens have a felt tip so they allow me to write nice and smoothly… I feel they make my handwriting look a little neater and more professional. I also like the fact that these pens write darker but do not bleed through as badly as other felt pens I have used in the past. Additionally, these pens have a great life span… I have been using them since January and they are still writing like they are brand new pens right out of the package.” —Jordan Lauren
Promising review: “This is so soft and so comfortable. It’s the first bodysuit I’ve bought and I don’t know why I hadn’t purchased it sooner. It’s amazing. I was worried about the snaps near the crotch being uncomfortable but you don’t even know they’re there. I also worried about the price if it might be see-through but it’s not at all. I’ll probably be buying it in every color.” —MW
The best part? It can be used at every childhood stage that the child will need to legally ride in a car seat.
Promising review: “I like that this will be the only car seat we will ever need. The clips to get our daughter in and out are easy and simple to use. Installation was very simple.” —Katie F.
One end is for regular shaving. The other end is a waterproof trimmer with an adjustable length for use in or out of the shower. The razor is designed with a hypoallergenic moisturizing serum to keep your skin supple and irritation-free.
Promising review: “I love this trimmer and razor! The razor is good but no better than any other really. It doesn’t cause razor bumps or ingrown hairs and gets a close shave. The trimmer is great though! I love that the guard can be taken off for a super close trim but not so close as to cause ingrowns. The trimmer is also super easy to use and you never have to worry about accidentally cutting yourself.” —Sophia
Promising review: “Love these hoops! They go with everything, they’re lightweight, and SUPER affordable. I wore these for my 27th birthday all night with no issues and my ears tend to be sensitive. I’ve worn them nearly every weekend since purchased.” —Jessica
The T-shirt is tagless and made of Cool DRI technology to dry faster. It’s also made with FreshIQ advanced odor protection technology to help the tee resist odor.
Promising review: “I love love love these shirts. They are comfortable, easy to clean and keep, and perfect for winter running and/or everyday use. I usually get a size larger if I intend to use it for nonexercising activities and they are great for layering. I do get the correct size for running because I want it to pull sweat away and it does. I’ve had one for 8 years, it’s my go-to for almost everything.” —Colleen
“It’s that season,” to quote the City Girls. School semesters are due to end, the holidays are coming up soon, somebody’s birthday is coming up, and you’ll be sticking and moving A LOT. Pre-scheduling gift cards to go out is peak convenience.
You can get the gift card for any amount that’s $1 or over! If you want to buy it now but select a different delivery date, then Amazon allows you to do that and set the date for up to a year from the day you order it. It’s also available with an animation OR a customized photo!
Promising review: “Very easy to purchase and have sent to the recipient. They were happy with their gift and it was nice that they could use it to purchase things that they had in their amazon cart. The card was immediately emailed to the recipient and I received a confirmation email as well. Definitely a super convenient gift!” —Angel of light and dark shadows of my parents
Get it from Amazon for $1+ (available in a variety of occasion themes and in two customization options).
Promising review: “I can’t believe I didn’t buy this shirt sooner! It’s everything I hoped it would be and much better than what I expected! I’m 5’9” and weigh about 150. I usually wear a medium in tops but listened to the reviews and got this in a large. Perfect fit! I’m definitely getting this shirt in all the colors! A similar shirt from UO is selling for like $45 so this is much better for my wallet!” —Marie Lassley
It’s made with a mixture of peppermint, spearmint, lavender, and coconut oil and can be applied to the temples, forehead, and back of the neck when you feel a headache coming on.
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.
My colleague tested and loved this. Read her full review on the Migrastil Migraine Stick here to learn more.
Promising review: “I have very thick, wavy hair. I can never blown out my hair because it’s too hard to hold the round brush and hairdryer in the right spots. THIS!! It is everything all in one and the oval shape makes it so easy to use. It gets really hot. It is a little loud on high, but I’ve found if my hair is already a little dry then I can just use it on low. I used a blow-dry primer spray to accelerate the drying time and protect my hair. I’m in love! The flat iron always flattens my hair and makes it look dry. This straightens and retains the volume and gives it a soft, non-damaged look.” —SAHM2011
The dryer is waterproof and comes with a towel-texture heat protection headband that’ll cover the ears and forehead. You can use it for deep conditioning and hair oil treatments. It’s also designed to fit properly over hair rollers, Flexi rods, or curl-formers.
Promising review: “I love this bonnet. In the beginning, I bought it to use it for hair treatments but then I realized that it’s perfect for quickly drying my hair every morning. I have plenty of hair and spend around 45 minutes with the comb and dryer to fully dry my hair, plus 20 mins to flat iron. With this bonnet, I spend 15 to 20 minutes instead and I can brush my teeth or do my makeup while the dryer is working. As I said, I use it for hair treatments that need heat like hair masks. It’s also ideal for drying my hair after washing and before going to bed. It has an adjustable strap and came with a comfy band-head that I use while applying makeup. The only thing I didn’t like is that the product didn’t come with instructions. It is very easy to use but instructions are always appreciated.” —Kasumi79
Promising review: “I love wine! Cheap wine that tastes good? Even better. This turned a bottle of two-buck chuck into a really nice Chardonnay. So I tried it on a better bottle of wine I usually keep on hand. Wow! I didn’t think that $20 wine could get better but it did. Box wine? Improved! Really good bottles? Improved. About two months after I bought it, the tab that locks the two pieces together broke off. I was skeptical that the lifetime guarantee would be honored. I have bought things here before that had lifetime guarantee only to find the company no longer exists. I sent my claim in and they offered to replace it and even expedited it to me for free. Can’t say enough about their customer service. Friendly, helpful, and fast.” —Hope 979
Promising review: “I bought this on a whim in last attempts to save my favorite duvet cover. The pills had gotten to the point where it was seriously uncomfortable to sleep with them getting all up in my leg space. I thought I was going to have to get a new duvet cover entirely but then along came this lil’ baby. Not only is my duvet cover basically brand new, but I also have found a new hobby. I’m de-pilling everything — sweatshirts, leggings, blankets, socks, and anything that looks like it needs some love. It does the job quickly and leaves everything looking fresh. I’m obsessed. I can’t stop. I should send this back. I’ve started asking if my neighbors need anything de-pilled. I’m going to buy one of these for everyone in my life. Everyone needs to own this. Take it away from me.” —Sydney Jensen
Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in six colors and in battery-operated or rechargeable options).
Promising review: “Love this little spoon! It fits perfectly on the edge of my coffee mug. Now, I no longer have to go searching for a spoon to stir my morning coffee! Since it sits on the edge of the cup, my fingers don’t get sticky from a wet handle. Plus, it’s absolutely adorable and makes me think of my own kitty while I’m away at work. This spoon has become an essential part of my morning routine.” —Brianna S.
Get it from Amazon for $2.99 OR get a multicolored set for $10.99+ (available in a five-pack).
Promising review: “So I debated HARD about buying these and now I’m sad I didn’t buy the four-pack. I got the two-pack because I wasn’t sure these would work on my Swiffer Wet Jet. HUNNY, THESE BAD BOYS ARE THE EFFING BEST THING ON AMAZON! Buy them. Buy them right now. I literally JUST used these to Swiffer my bedroom and bathroom. These stuck to my Swiffer so well that I had to nearly pry them off once I was done. They are so absorbent. I swear those disposable pads will never be bought ever again. I am ordering more and more of these pads. They even came with a lovely handwritten note from the lady who owns the company. Honestly, I have no idea why I waited so long. I can never not buy these again. This was the best Swiffering ever. My floors seriously look cleaner. I give 20 stars.” —ElleSoFresh
Get the reusable pads for $14.95+ (available in a pack of 2 or more) and the Swiffer Wet Jet for $37.40 (free shipping).
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 dishes 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. 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 the 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 every month, 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
Promising review: “My sister got me these as a gift and they’re adorable. I wear a 6.5 shoe size and they fit perfectly. They’re also long enough so that when I wear my ankle rain boots, they don’t scratch me. If you’re a cat lover, these socks are for you!!” —Marissa Resnick
Get the set of five from Amazon for $9.99 (available in six styles and one size).
