I like to think of myself as a fairly creative and inventive person, so whenever I come across a product that’s so completely simple yet at the same time insanely brilliant I tend to get pretty upset with myself for not coming up with it in the first place. Shark Tank has brought us some of the worst and best product ideas of all time, and while the bad ideas are way more fun to watch, the good ideas can change our lives for the better.
The following 41 products are a perfect combination of innovation and affordability, since they’re all available for under $25 bucks.
This Q-flex Acupressure Back and Body Massage Tool That Hits All The Right Spots
As as six-months pregnant woman, I have a lot of aches and pains. In fact, my husband would probably tell you that my entire body seems to hurt at all times based on the amount of complaining I do on a daily basis.
This Q-flex Acupressure Back and Body Massage Tool has been a complete game-changer when it comes to my overall comfort and ability to relax.
This Wondercide Organic Skin Tonic Spray That Relieves Itchy Skin
Life is filled with annoying little itches. Whether it be from bug bites, a rash, or simply just dry skin, it can get to the point where you’re just constantly scratching, which just makes the problem worse.
This Wondercide Organic Skin Tonic Spray soothes even the most inflamed spots and is completely organic, which gives you complete peace of mind.
This Stasher Reusable Silicone Food Bag That Cuts Down On Waste
Lately I’ve been making a conscious effort to reduce my carbon footprint. While that can sometimes be easier than others (I still go through WAY too many sheets of paper towels every day), this Stasher Reusable Silicone Food Bag is a simple day to cut down on both plastic and food waste.
The silicone design keeps it looking and performing like day after day.
This Third Wave Water Mineral Supplement That Takes Your Coffee To Flavorful New Heights
Man, do I love my coffee. Black, with cream and sugar, espresso, mocha; you name a type and I’ll slurp it down. So I’m always on the hunt for ways to make the coffee I enjoy at home taste even better. That’s why this Third Wave Water Mineral Enhanced Flavor Optimizing Coffee Brewing Water was such a game-changer for me.
Simply pour a tablet into a gallon of water for amazingly smooth, rich results.
This All-Natural Cleanser That Beautifully Buffs Your Skin
I tend to be a bit of a skincare hoarder. If I come across a product that boldly claims to “change your skin forever”, I just can’t stop myself from snatching it up. The problem, of course, is that most of these products rarely do what they say they’re going to do, and I’m left with a bathroom that’s overflowing with, essentially, useless garbage.
This Natural Exfoliating Facial Cleanser is different. It uses all-natural ingredients and leaves your skin soft, smooth and totally refreshed.
This ReadeREST That Keeps Your Specs Right Where You Need Them
I recently got a pair of reading glasses after going years and years of suffering from headaches and having to squint in order to read text that was an inch from my face. The problem, of course, is that I’m constantly misplacing them and, therefor, rarely wearing them.
So this ReadeREST was basically invented for horribly forgetful people like myself.
These Solemates Heel Protectors That Keep Your Heels From Sinking
Fellas, you’ll never have to experience going to an outdoor event like a wedding or concert and being forced to walk like you’re in quicksand as your high heels sink into the soft grass.

In my quest to lead a more waste-free, all-natural life, I’ve been on the hunt for an organic and aluminum-free deodorant that will actually keep me smelling good all day long.
This PiperWai Charcoal Deodorant does the job like a pro. And although the idea of spreading a paste on your armpits might sound weird, trust me, it’s worth it.
This DetraPel Fabric & Leather Protector That Saves Your Favorite Styles
I’m an incredibly cheap person (although I prefer call it “thrifty”), and if I invest good money in an article of clothing I do my absolute best to keep it in good shape so I don’t have to spend the money to replace it.
This DetraPel Fabric & Leather Protection repels liquid so your favorite items stay looking new for longer.

This Drain Stopper That Stops Clogs Before They Start
I have a lot of long, extremely thick hair, and I’m constantly pulling disgusting clumps of it out of the drain and showering in a pool of water due to our stopped up drain.

That’s what makes this Monkey Mat Water/Sand Repellent Blanket with Corner Weights so perfect for me. It’s study, easy to clean, and won’t blow away on even the windiest days.
These Bamboo Paper Towels That You Can Wash And Re-Use
Remember what I said about my addiction to disposable paper towels and how bad I feel about ruining the earth with my selfishness? I was recently telling a green-obsessed friend of mine about this issue and she recommended I try these Bambooee Reuseable & Machine Washable Bamboo Paper Towels. Although they look and feel like traditional paper towels, you can re-use them up to 100 times.

These Sleep Styler Curlers That Does Your Hair While You Dream

These Sleep Styler Nighttime Hair Curlers create flawless waves without harsh, damaging heat.
This Pancake and Waffle Mix That’s Packed With Protein

But these Kodiak Cakes Power Cakes are different. They offer 14 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber per serving, so you can dig in without feeling guilty.
These Shower Drain Protectors That Are Cute AND Handy
As a new homeowner, I’m constantly dealing with little projects popping up here and there. And while they might seem small, they can add up pretty darn quickly. So if I can avoid calling a plumber to clear out an epic clog from my pipes, I’ll do that by any means necessary.
These DrainWig Shower Drain Protectors are not only cute, they’re extremely effective.
This Curl Creme That Tames Your Tresses
