Add this Cooling Eye Mask to your next bath for the ultimate in self-care. The flexible mask has a soft, plush lining and gel beads inside. Chill first in the fridge or freezer, then apply to reduce pain and inflammation.
This LED Alarm Clock is So Easy to Read
This LED alarm clock is a fab invention – just plug in your phone with the USB cord and the time is displayed in extra large numbers that’s easy to see at a glance. I use my phone as an alarm clock every day, but have trouble seeing it in the dark. It’d be so much easier to just look over to my nightstand and see huge numbers glowing!
SPF Lovers, Don’t @ Me
Don’t judge but for the longest time, I would skip my SPF in my daily skincare routine. I know, I know, I’m the worst! But, now that I’m fully committed to protecting my skin from the sun each and every day, I needed to give my lips some extra care. This sunscreen lip balm hits all the marks, keeping my lips soft, hydrated and protected. And I can’t get enough of the delicious banana scent!
These Rubber Coated Hangers Won’t Let Clothes Slip
Before these hangers, I spent a lot of time picking clothes up off my closet floor after they gently slid off the slippy hangers I used to have. These rubber-coated hangers are pretty much my dream come true – they’ll grip onto your clothes so they won’t slide around or off the hanger, which is so annoying. They’re great for silky blouses and jeans alike, since both the arms and the cross bar is rubberized. Reviewers love them too – they have a perfect 5-star rating from over 1,000 reviews!
These Trays That Make Ice Cubes For Water Bottles
Ever notice how regular ice cubes won’t fit into most water bottles? These ice cube trays solve that by making extra-slim cubes that easily fit through narrow bottle mouths. And since each tray comes with a matching lid, you can even stack things on top of them in the freezer without worrying about spills.

These Razors For The Tight Spots Around Your Brows
You can’t trim your brows using a regular razor unless you want to accidentally shave them off. No? Then grab these precision ones. The smaller blades are easier to maneuver around your brows — or, they’ll even work great when getting rid of small patches of peach fuzz.
This Cooling Ice Wrap to Relieve Hot Flashes
This cooling collar is made with industrial-strength plastic ice sheets and stays around your neck with its adjustable Velcro. I use it on super-hot summer days when the humidity gets too much for me.
It comes with two strips of ice cubes so you can keep one frozen and switch them over when you need to. Few things feel better faster than the immediate cooling of this collar.
I’m Your Biggest Fan
I want to call every product on this list “my favorite,” but you wouldn’t believe me, would you? But this one is so, so close to one of the best things I’ve ever bought on Amazon. I’ve tried a lot of mini handheld fans (hey, I live in Florida, give me a break), but they ultimately let me down. This one has three powerful speeds, a folding design and crazy-long battery life.
Sleep Better Anywhere With This Portable White Noise Machine
Perfect for travel, this Portable White Noise Machine is a must for anyone who’s a light sleeper. It measures 3.5 inches in diameter and includes a hanging loop. It has three sound modes–bright white noise, deep white noise, and ocean waves–and runs all night on one USB charge.
This Mushroom-Shaped Pacifier is all the Rage
This might be the coolest pacifier I’ve ever seen, and I so wish it was invented when my kids were small! The mushroom shape is easy for babies to use, and it has a stem so it’s easily graspable by tiny hands. It’s shaped to mimic a breast, so it’s extra-soothing and familiar for tiny babies under 6 months.
This Neck Cooling Towel for Hot Sweaty Workouts
Whether I’m doing yoga or going for a run, I always cool off with this neck cooling towel. Not only does this towel cool you down when you wear it around your neck, but it also has UPF 50+ to protect you from the sun when doing an outdoor workout.
All you have to do when you’re finishing working out is soak it and wring it out and it’s ready to use again.
Say Goodbye To Stubborn Clogs With Green Gobbler
If you have long hair, you know what it’s like to have clogged sinks and showers. There’s nothing worse than trying to take a shower, only to have the dirty water sit in the tub. Green Gobbler takes on even the toughest clogs to dissolve hair, soap, paper, and grease so that your drains stay free-flowing.
These Chair Leg Floor Protectors are So Easy to Install
The house we moved into has hardwood floors in the kitchen, which looks great but gets totally scratched up by the counter stools my kids sit on for every meal.

This Mascara Primer Gives Your Lashes An Extra Boost
Using mascara primer is one of the easiest, fastest ways to make your lashes look longer and thicker. It not only helps your mascara stick to your lashes but over time, it also conditions for soft, nourished lashes. Apply 1-2 layers of primer before your mascara and be prepared to be WOW’d.

Want your pantry or spice cabinet to look like it could be featured on Instagram?

It’s so satisfying to see them all lined up, and now I don’t forget about the turmeric in the back of the cabinet anymore.
This Sleep Aid Is a Bargain-Priced Version of Unisom
Another great house brand by Amazon, this Sleep Aid is a must-have for insomniacs. It contains the same active ingredient as Unisom, doxylamine succinate, a gentle yet effective over-the-counter medication. The reviews are filled with success stories, with one customer writing, “They work, and they are cheap, what’s not to love?”
This Willow Balm is Natural Pain Relief and Also Targets Inflammation
Willow Balm is formulated to address arthritis, joint pain, and muscle aches. Smooth on the lightly scented cream to reduce pain and inflammation thanks to natural ingredients like white willow bark and helichrysum. I always keep a tube of this in my medicine cabinet and gym bag.
This Will Feel Like You’re Standing an a Cloud
If you’re like me, you probably spend a ton of time cheffin’ it up in the kitchen. Like, so much time that my feet start to get a little sore from standing for so long. Luckily, this mat makes that time spent cooking so much more enjoyable. To the point that sometimes I just go stand on it even when I’m not cooking.
Get Soapbox Brows With This Eyebrow Soap Kit
I, unfortunately, was born with pretty thin eyebrows. And it’s all about the full fluffy brows these days. So I do what I can to fake it any way that I can. This eyebrow soap kit adds thickness, volume, and texture to your brows in seconds. With the small angled brushes, it’s super easy to achieve the bushy look. Plus, the spoolie allows you to brush them out once you’ve got the desired look to blend for a more natural look.

Within the first six months, the baby’s going to be sporting some new pearly whites so it’s a good idea to start brushing early so they get used to the process.

This Car Organizer Keeps You Safer
You need a place to put all your stuff, but if you place it on the front seat of the car, it’s gonna slide onto the floor and distract you whenever you have to brake hard. This car organizer keeps you safer since it keeps your items in reach but out of the way of driving. It’s also great for holding purses so they don’t tip over and spill their contents all over the place.

This Korean Sun Milk Goes On Like Water
K-Beauty knocks it out of the park again for being affordable, innovative, and extremely effective!

The 100% mineral formula goes on like water, absorbs immediately with no white cast or residue and has a high SPF.

Prevent Water Marks With This Shower Squeegee
Growing up, my mom always told me to squeegee the glass shower doors every time I was finished showering, but I never understood why until I was an adult. It helps prevent hard water spots and soap scum, which keeps your shower looking clean as heck. You can also use it for wall tiles, mirrors, even your car windshield.

Rub the sweat and grime off your body with these wipes and you’ll be feeling so fresh and clean. The glowing reviews don’t lie; this is truly a must-have for anyone who loves the outdoors.
This Stylus Pen is Cheaper Than its Fruity Counterpart
I own an Apple Pencil and I’m not proud of it. A hundred bucks for a stylus? C’mon, man. This stylus looks nearly identical, costs a fraction of the Apple Pencil and, if the reviews are to be believed, more than adequately gets the job done. One person who purchased said: “The best alternative Apple Pencil period!” Don’t listen to them, Apple. I still love you. (I also love this $29 alternative, too.)
The Precision Tweezers That Line Up Perfectly
You know how most tweezers don’t quite line up right? That isn’t the case with these ones. Not only do the tips line up precisely, but each tweezing head is different depending on the task at hand. Popping a zit? Pick the yellow tweezer — or, if you’ve got tough blackheads, go ahead and take the coral one for a spin.

This Lightning Cable Deal is Electric
If I had a quarter for every lightning cable I’ve bought and destroyed or lost in my adult life, I’d have a lot of quarters. Probably more than enough to buy this five-pack for $11. This set includes two 3-ft. cords, two 6-ft. cords and one 10-ft. cord to accommodate just about anywhere you might need to plug in and get some juice. Designed with reinforced stress points, these cords should last you until you lose them and have to buy more.
