Promising review: "I fought buying this, but after several friends swore by this I caved. I have sensitive acne prone skin but also have some fine lines. Let me tell you after applying this I immediately felt my skin calm down. And the next day my skin was glowing and my acne had diminished. This will forever be apart of my regimen." —arand5292

From spooning potatoes into boiling water without a mess to draining a full can of beans and far, far beyond, this scoop is a must-have in the kitchen. I find myself reaching for it every day. It has easily replaced the other spoons/scoops that I would usually use. You cannot go wrong with this purchase!" —Jill Clement

Promising review: "I ordered this lamp because of its appearance. I didn't NEED a depressed duck lamp ... but it has totally filled a void in my life I didn't know existed. Everyone who sees it pokes it. The lamp is actually very functional. It's got a really nice set of brightness options and the glow is yellowish, which is much nicer than white in a dim/dark room. One thing that isn't mentioned in the description is that its legs are utterly floppy. It's terrific." —Literated

Because it’s curved, it does take some time to install both sides and make sure it’s lined up. Comes with everything you could need to install. Other than that, this shower rod is a dream." —Siarra

My colleague Emma Lord (pictured above) is ready to divulge why this stuff is so great:
"Okay, I bought this on a whim because there's a sushi place down the street from me that makes truffle avocado sushi rolls and I was like, I need these in my life, but I also need money to live. I decided to DIY it with a regular $4 avocado roll and this seasoning and the umami bliss of it all basically exploded my brain. Since then I've tried it on eggs, on burritos, on potatoes, on chocolate mug cakes, pretty much every sweet and savory thing I can think of. The best part is you really get an excellent bang for your buck — it's so flavorful that I've been using this for months now and have barely made a dent in the container!"
Promising review: "Yes, I'm a truffle lover to begin with. And, of course, only a truffle is a truffle. But I gotta tell ya this delectable heaven-sent powder is one heck of a more versatile option. Utterly AMAZING on popcorn, in eggs, added to soups and sauces to layer flavors, veggies, PASTA...the list is endless (I think the only thing I haven't tried was sprinkling it on ice cream...although LOL). It is a bit salty, so I advise testing the waters first. But I just ordered my 9th and 10th bottle of the Truffle Zest." —Greengirl

EZ Off is a small business!
Promising review: "I have tried a million different tools and gadgets for help in opening jars of all sizes, and each one had its own issues! Finally, someone has invented the perfect jar opener that is simple and requires no space in your kitchen drawers or counters. There was one person who suggested placing the opener with the sharp end of the 'V' closest to you and with it placed in the front, in the right corner under your cabinet. I followed those directions and it works perfectly and easily. I have already placed an order for another one for a gift or my sister." —moorecats

My favorite thing to do is swap out all of the books in my son's room to reflect the current season or whatever holiday is up next. I recently received a copy of this book (and a bunch of others from the same illustrator) and am obsessed. The artistry is SO lovely and it'll be a very fun way to introduce *~spooky season*~ to my kiddo. I would absolutely pick this up for myself even if I didn't have a child — the cover is just so lovely all on its own!
Promising review: "These books are sooooo beautifully illustrated! I’m obsessed with them and my one-year-old absolutely loves them! They’re super sturdy as well so they will hold up to some rough handling. I will definitely be buying more!" —peggy

I’ve been using them daily for almost a year and haven’t noticed any of the colors running low on ink yet. They also don’t bleed through the paper, which is a huge plus!" —Katie @TeachRunCreate

Many reviewers who experienced postpartum hair loss and regrowth have said this product is a must-buy.
Promising review: "With a few strokes of the 'mascara-like' wand, hair that has broken off and unable to reach an up-do are secured into a clean and classic look. I keep my hair in a pony tail even while sleeping. So, when I want to pull it into an up-do I have broken hairs along my hairline that make my look sloppy. Hairspray just doesn't do it. This product does. I even have to brush it out the next day if I haven't the evening before. I am a repeat buyer. My first purchase is still working after intermittent use for over three years. I reordered it because I don't want to be caught without it!" —Trish

Promising review: "I had been having hearing issues in one ear for a couple of weeks. I self diagnosed myself that it was ear wax build up. I wear earbuds a LOT and when running outside, of course, the sweat etc... I started with using 3% hydrogen peroxide. I used it as soon as it came and put in ear and laid on couch. Then used just a general Children's Tylenol syringe with warm water to flush out. Nada. Right before bed I thought I would do another round. This time after putting it in, I used a wet cotton ball to keep it in. I put quite a bit of the solution. Watched TV for about 10 min and then used warmed up water and the syringe again. HOLY MOLY! The stuff that fell out of my ear was DISGUSTING!!! But I heard an immediate 'pop' like sound and sure enough in the sink was gunk so gross. I could hear normally again instantly!!! BUY THIS!! It works!!" —June

Promising review: "I fell in love with this set the moment it came out of the box. It is sturdy, well-made and definitely worth the price. My living room is all pink and I just inherited my grandmothers writing desk so this fit in beautifully. I am a writer and like to make my writing space as inviting and lovely as possible. This desk set helps me keep my papers, mail, note pad, writing journals, and pens beautifully organized. Worth every cent." —MRS

BuzzFeed writer Jasmin Sandal is a big fan: "My hair is the ~perfect~ combo of wavy, curly, and frizzy and this drugstore product has been a holy grail of mine for some time. I've found that it's the only formula that will give me soft, naturally curly waves come the a.m. and since I'm generally a nighttime hair washer, I have the perfect excuse to avoid blasting my hair with heat. Before hitting the pillow, I like to run my fingers through my towel-dried hair with a pea-sized amount of this, flip my mane over, and then give the ends a good scrunch. In the morn, my hair appears shiny with defined, wavy curls — we're not talking HD — but they have a nice, soft definition to them that doesn't require much styling."
Promising review: "Absolutely love this stuff! It's the one hair product I have to have. I rotate shampoos and conditioners but have never found anything to put on damp hair that I like as much as this. It says it's for curls, but works great on straight hair too. I have had super straight to very curly over the years and have loved this on all hair styles." —Bunco Queen of the Universe

Promising review: "This is by far the most comfortable thing I have ever put on my body!! It's so soft and loose and comfy, it doesn't cause any sensory problems when sitting down and it is so comfortable. I want to own these in every color and i want to wear them every single day of my life. These were LIFE CHANGING and AMAZING. I have never worn something on my body for this long and wanted to keep it on forever. So light and soft and just something everyone should own." —benniii

Promising review: "I have a newborn so I don’t sleep enough or drink enough water. I was really starting to notice the effects under my eyes. I had dark bags and just looked tired. I put this eye cream on at night with my normal lotion and noticed a big difference in the darkness under my eyes the next morning. Now after I have applied it for a few days p.m. and a.m., my dark circles and bags are almost gone. I may not feel rested but at least I’ll look it!" —Jamie Moore

Promising review: "I have always just worn my hair in a bun and stuck the ends into itself. This is such a clever idea to secure your hair. I was skeptical at first because I was worried the material would be flimsy and easily bend and scratch my scalp. I was pleasantly surprised and delighted that not only are they a nice think metal material, they don't bend, the ends indeed have little 'balls' so it doesn't scratch your scalp as you spin/turn them and secure into your bun. They are light weight so having them in your bun doesn't weight it down and cause you headaches." —FWH HulaGirl

The pants are full length on me and are great with flats, but would look cute as crops on taller people. I can mix and match the neutral colors with other pieces, the top is a little oversized and looks good with leggings, too." —Like wearing a hug

I read this book when it came out in 2019 and have been a fan ever since. It's got drama, romance, and royalty. What more could you want in a novel?! I haven't personally watched the movie yet but I'm planning to ASAP!
Promising review: "I swear, I cheesy grinned my way through basically 95% of Red, White & Royal Blue. Alex and Henry's enemies-to-friends-to-love story was just perfect. Their chemistry was wonderful and their banter had me totally cracking up. Everything about Red, White & Royal Blue — from the characters to the friendships to the romance to the family interactions to the political aspects — worked for me. Each of the characters were so rich and unique, I'm not ready to give them up." —Kim B.

The Ringer is a small business!
Promising review: "Purchased this to clean our cast iron pans which we use for daily cooking. It will easily scrub off any stuck on food that we have left on the pans. Typically we boil a small amount of water in the pan after cooking to loosen any stuck food — a little elbow grease with this scrubber and the pans are clean and gunk free. This purchase was a legitimate product and not a knock-off. Rings are solid/soldered loops and not links that will pull open and come apart." —Timothy B.

Promising review: "I'm really liking this pillow. I woke up today with nice wavy hair, not dry tangled hair. I've been trying to grow out the layer of hair on the top back of my head and it's been so stubborn! Keeps getting tangled and breaks here and there from bleaching and dye damage, but with this new pillow I notice it doesn't tangle, which means it can grow right without rubbing and tangling/pulling! So I'm excited to see what happens by the end of summer! Also the pillow is soft and is so much more prettier in person! 😍😍😍💖💖💖" —Amazon Customer 🌷

BuzzFeed editor Elizabeth Lilly swears by these: "I'm quite adept at painting my own nails (the only time I get a professional manicure is when I want gel before going on vacation), but these press-on nails have me feeling super lazy about painting my nails because they're so easy to use! And that's OK! Each set costs you less than 10 bucks and rather than fool with a bottle of nail glue that ends up anywhere but the nails, each nail has a peel-off plastic that reveals a super sticky surface you press onto your real nail. I find that all the nails stay on about three days when I do stuff like hand-wash my dishes, pet glorious dogs, and scratch many layers of dry shampoo on my scalp. You'll get 30 nails with each set, which helps you find the right sizes BUT I've also found comes in handy when a pointer or middle fingernail pops off. (Those are the first to go in my experience) so I end up getting about a week's use of wear out of each nail set. Friends have seen me with the nails on and all have believed they're the real deal!?

Sweet Loren's is a women-owned small business! The cookies are gluten free, vegan, non GMO, plant based, dairy free, nut free, and 100% whole grain. I was hesitant to try them because, honestly, they sounded SO healthy for cookies! However, they were absolutely delicious. I've tried both the chocolate chunk and the fudgy brownie and have yet to be disappointed. The dough can even be eaten safely raw (a serious treat). And I love that I don't have to make the entire package at one time and can whip up a handful in my toaster oven when the mood strikes. You can also extend their freshness by popping them in the freezer instead of keeping them in the fridge. I'll be trying their pumpkin spice flavor next, stay tuned!
