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

Peach Slices is a small business!
Promising review: "I had a stubborn pimple that wouldn’t go away…until I tried these! These little patches are really amazing. I honestly had my doubts but I thought I’d give it a try. I was thoroughly impressed! They stick well, are durable, and not at all noticeable." —Miranda L.
Get it from Amazon for $4.88.
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

BuzzFeed editor Elizabeth Lilly loves this product:
"I use this (and when I recently ran out, I went back to an old liner I had and instantly regretted it), and I have the greasiest eyelids ever. This has been the best liquid eyeliner ever. Even if you avoid non-drugstore brands, this will be worth the double-digit price."
Promising review: "Eyeliner so easy to apply that the blind can use it! I'm legally blind and do my makeup by feel. Eyeliner is the hardest to do, so I've gone without for years. Decided to give this one a shot based on the reviews and was not disappointed. Came out great and was so easy to apply! So happy to be wearing eyeliner again!" —Lowe Family
Get it from Amazon for $24 (available in 12 colors).
Promising review: "This cup is perfect! The aesthetic is exactly as advertised, and the tumbler looks and feels very high quality. It's easy to clean, and the lid suctions on nicely, so more spills are prevented. I use this every day for my iced coffee, and it keeps it nice and cool throughout the morning. Especially for the price you pay, this cup is a great deal!" —Maddie Bangz
Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in 22 colors and in two-packs).
Promising review: "I was a little unsure what to expect. I had never used something like this before, but my girlfriend says my breath stinks and she deserves better than that. I brush and floss, but there is still that 'thing'...that stank under the normal mouth breath. Using this has removed that. Not really sure how it works or why that layer of spit and stuff on your tongue has to smell so bad, but this removes it well and also feels kinda nice. Thank you!" —nick

Promising review: "Anyone with lots of hair knows it takes quite a few bobby pins to hold it all in place. This product holds them all with a strong magnet, while still allowing easy grabbing. Much better than storing them loose or in a container." —Janae C. Schaft

Promising review: "I am in love with this perfect matte black curved shower curtain rod! Semi easy to install. 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

Promising reviews: "They are so cute. Will be purchasing again! Giving my office area character, color, and good vibes. Happy customer!!!" —Capri
"These aren’t sticky notes, just memo pads so if you’re looking for sticky notes, you might want to pass on these. However, these are SO CUTE! They come in five different styles that are all well printed. The colors are great, and the paper is good. Not super thin or anything. There’s a good number of each design in the pad, so I feel like the quality and value is definitely there. I am now using these on the daily! 10/10 love these!!" —Mary M.

Promising review: "These are amazing! We use them for so many things! For positive messages and romantic nights, they are amazing for leaving around the house! You can also stick them to paper and restick the same ones over and over again! They seem to never lose their adhesion! Everyone I’ve shown these to fall in love with them!" —Faith

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
Get it from Amazon for $13.99.
See it in action in this TikTok here. The speed range is 0.5–6mph, and it can hold up to 220 pounds.
Promising review: "This thing is awesome. I'm a small, not technical person and managed to haul this thing up two flights of stairs (slowly), unbox, turn on and even connect my phone to the Bluetooth in it. No assembly. Simple instructions. Distance and time measurements seem to be accurate, but the 'calories' might be missing a decimal point. No squealing or groaning under my walking. Not too loud. Slides right under my bed. Didn't need to adjust the belt, though the tool to do so is included. Packaging says to oil every 30 hours. The remote is needed to make the treadmill function. It is extremely cheap — like dollar store cheap. I hope the company has a remote replacement for if/when the remote bites it. Even still, I would 100% buy this again. Great treadmill!" —Crowells
Get it from Amazon for $318.99+ (available in four colors).
Promising review: "One of the best cleaning tools I own in my home. I use it for everything I need to dust. Not just for baseboards anymore!! Plus, it can be washed and air dried!! Love my Baseboard Buddy!! The pole is long enough that you can even use to to do your fan blades. 😉 The pads are super absorbent, and you can even add a touch of soap and a couple drops of water or cleaner for those troubled areas as well. I highly recommend this product!!" —Lori Sitzler

Promising review: "I have a similar adjustable jar opener from probably 40+ years ago and it finally wore out at the point I needed most. This new one works great! I had given up finding another jar opener that helps me so much with my arthritis. It is the only one I have found that does not expect me to twist with my painful hand/wrist." —Lorraine Redrock
Get it from Amazon for $7.99.
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
Get it from Amazon for $14.39.

I have this candle and was blown away by how gorgeous the lid looks. The site describes the scent of this "Everlasting Magic" candle as "strolling through an enchanted garden on a starry night," which was an immediate sell for me. Once I burn through it I'm 100,000% going to repurpose the lid onto other B&BW candles!
Get it from Bath & Body Works for $36.95 and check out their entire fall shop!
My husband and I have been living off of these drinks lately (courtesy of our maniac of a toddler whose energy cannot be matched). We keep all of them in the fridge so they're ready to go whenever the mood strikes (AKA the moment I open my eyes in the morning). I prefer pouring mine over ice while my husband prefers to drink it directly out of the can when he's running errands. The taste is phenomenal! So smooth and delicious. They're also USDA certified organic —always a plus. This pack comes with four flavors: Original Black, Oat Milk Mocha, Oat Milk Vanilla Latte, and Oat Milk Latte. The mocha and vanilla are my favorite, but I'm a sugary coffee kinda girl. And I'd be remiss to if I didn't mention Rise Brewing Co. is a small business!
Get a 12-pack from Amazon for $39.99. You can also try their London Fog Nitro Ear Grey Tea Latte or their new Salted Caramel Nitro Cold Brew Coffee.
I've had the pleasure of testing out the Dyson Airstrait and, OMG, what an incredible piece of technology. Yes, I called this "tech" instead of a beauty tool. While it is both of these things, I was amazed by the gadget-ness of it right off the bat. I literally had to select on an LCD screen what language MY STRAIGHTENER should be set to...wild. Anyways! The Airstrait has the ability to straighten both wet or dry hair — and does without the use of damaging hot plates. It uses directional airflow to smooth and straighten hair and, honestly, it is a pretty magical experience. The biggest learning curve for me was realizing the copper pieces (where the fan lives) need to face outward so you're not blowing your hair all over the place. The fan increases when you clamp the Airstrait around your hair (HOW DOES IT KNOW!?) and pauses entirely when you set it down (seen in the GIF to the left). Additionally, I have a toddler and am very limited on time. With this gadget I was able to take my hair from directly-from-the-shower wet to natural-looking straight hair in only TEN MINUTES. This is going to be such a game changer for my life!!! It's definitely worth the splurge. Add this to your holiday wish list or, you know, get it now.
Get it from Sephora for $499.
