1. This Best-Selling Flat Iron That's Wowed Almost 30,000 Amazon Shoppers
Flat irons might seem like run-of-the-mill haircare purchases, but it's important to find one that's both effective and safe for your strands. This ceramic flat iron has microsensors to detect the heat that's being applied to your hair so that your strands never get over-crisped. And with a single pass of the plates, your hair will look straight, shiny, and downright stunning. Best of all, it can be used on all hair types (even coarse, frizzy tresses) to deliver the same results.
2. A Natural Deodorant That Smells Like Coconut And Vanilla
This fan-favorite, natural deodorant smells like coconuts and vanilla, and it's made without aluminum, parabens, phthalates, or talc. Plus, the popular Native stick glides on easily and goes on clear — so it shouldn't stain your clothes. Some of the ingredients used to make it include coconut oil, shea butter, baking soda, and probiotics. The deodorant comes in three additional scents, which include coconut and vanilla, lavender and rose, cucumber and mint, unscented, and charcoal.
3. The Electric Peeler That Makes Meal Prep Easier
There's a pretty good chance that you're busy enough as it is (without setting the time aside to peel fruits and veggies). This electric peeler will help you save time, because it'll do the job for you. Simply place the fruit or vegetable of your choice between the two tongs, and then secure it into place with the middle grip. Then, press the red button and watch the machine work its magic.
4. A Dermatologist-Recommended Facial Cleanser That's Super Hydrating
If your skin is on the drier side, this dermatologist-recommended facial cleanser will help enhance the health and appearance of your complexion. It's made with hyaluronic acid and a bounty of ceramides to help your skin retain moisture so it looks dewy and fresh all day long. And since it's fragrance-free and non-comedogenic, it's gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin.
5. This Argan Oil Heat Protector That Withstands 450 Degrees
This hydrating and smoothing argan oil heat spray is designed to protect your hair against heat damage up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. And if you regularly blow-dry, straighten, and curl your hair, you'll want to ensure that your beauty collection is stocked with this high-quality heat protectant. Simply spritz it on damp strands, and then style as usual. It's paraben- and sulfate-free.
6. A Waterproof Smart Plug That You Can Use Outside
This waterproof smart plug is a must-have for anyone who likes to add power to their outdoor spaces, whether you want to decorate or add some extra lighting. In addition to being protected against the rain, it comes with the ability to be set on a timer or controlled from your phone — and you can even use it with Google and Alexa. Because of that, you can easily turn off outdoor power without actually having to walk outside.
7. The Mascara Primer That Makes Lashes Look Longer
The trick to achieving longer-looking lashes lies within this cult-favorite mascara primer. The white formula coats lashes for a longer, fuller effect before you even apply your tinted mascara. Simply swipe a coat or two on, and then follow it up with the colored mascara of your choice. I guarantee you'll be ogling at the results, because it has over 1,400 five-star reviews.
8. These Pimple Patches That Banish Breakouts Overnight
To help make your breakouts a bit better (not redder), cover them with these acne-absorbing hydrocolloid patches. Each hydrocolloid design is made to absorb liquid from your blemish so it can promote faster healing with less inflammation. In other words, these teeny, transparent patches — which come in a variety of sizes — will make breakouts a lot more manageable. They'll also prevent picking, which is another plus.
9. The Water Bottle That Keeps Drinks Cold For 24 Hours
To ease away from plastic, single-use bottles, opt for this best-selling eco-friendly water bottle. The BPA-free design comes in a variety of colors and sizes, ranging from 18 to 42 ounces. It's made with stainless steel and uses an impressive insulation system to keep your drinks cold for up to 24 hours (I'm not kidding). In fact, it can even keep your hot drinks warm for up to 12 hours. Plus, you can even swap out the lid for a straw lid so you can cut back on your single-use straws, too.
10. The Safety Hammers That Break Car Windows And Cut Seatbelts
It's important to outfit your car with the necessary tools to get you out of scary, life-threatening situations. Case in point: these double-sided safety hammers. On one end, you'll find a small, pointed hammer designed for breaking car windows — and on the other, you'll have a seatbelt cutter. And since the tool is lined with a reflective strip, you'll even be able to find it in dimly-lit situations.
11. This Smart Home Camera With Impressive Night Vision
Some home cameras only work in well-lit areas. That's not the case with this Alexa- and Google-compatible night vision camera, though. (Hence why it's so popular among shoppers.) When you outfit your home with this swivel camera, you can see what's happening from your phone screen — even when it's dark out. It will automatically record a 12-second clip if motion or sound disrupts the room, so you can feel confident that your home is safe.
12. A Facial Mask Made With 24-Karat Gold And Vitamin E
If your skin is feeling a touch lackluster, you should treat it to this 24-karat gold mask that's designed to brighten, hydrate, and tone your complexion in minutes.

If this is a new product for your routine, the brand recommends performing a small patch test on your arm before slathering it onto your face.

A hot cup of tea can be a real treat. To set yourself up for cozy relaxation, add this tea bag set to your cart.

16. A Flexible Ice Pack To Replace Your Hard Plastic One
Usually, standard ice packs are made with hard plastic that's entirely uncomfortable. If you agree, it's time to upgrade to this reusable ice pack. Its double-sealed gel design is made to fit comfortably around the curves of your neck, shoulders, back, legs, and arms. Therefore, you can use this pain-relief device without impeding comfort. It's also available in tons of sizes to relieve various aches.
17. The Adjustable Measuring Cup That Saves Space In The Kitchen
Instead of buying a stack of measuring cups (and losing one or two whenever you move), opt for this adjustable one. The cup itself features a plunger that can be used to adjust the size of the opening — and it can also be used to help press the product into your mixing bowl. As a result, you won't have to dirty any extra utensils to scoop out the contents of the measuring cup. Then, pop it in the dishwasher when you're done. Easy peasy.
18. A Gooseneck LED Mirror That Suctions To Your Bathroom Mirror
To make your makeup application process easier than ever, stick one of these suction-cup gooseneck mirrors onto your regular mirror.

That way, you can easily even out your eyeliner, touch up your lipstick edges, pluck your brows, and more. The mirror comes in two different magnification selections, so choose one that's best for you.
19. The Aloe Vera That Comes In A Spray Bottle
If aloe vera is one of those ingredients that you can never have too much of, add this aloe vera body spray to your cabinet. The organic spray is designed to hydrate your skin, but it can also be used in your hair. And since it's extra-soothing, it'll help relieve sun burns and irritation on the spot. Best of all, it comes in a spritzer bottle, so you won't even have to get your hands all wet to apply it.

To make sure drawers don't create odors that'll transfer onto your clothes, outfit your dressers with these scented drawer liners. They come in a variety of scents including Sea Fresh, Heritage Rose, Island Gardenia, and more. The floral-printed, non-adhesive sheets are designed to lay flat in the bottom of your drawers, so they won't interfere with storage. They also come in different sizes, so you can choose ones that fit right into your furniture.

24. A Silicone Popcorn Bowl That's Also Collapsible
Are you tired of using tons of popcorn bags to accommodate your movie nights? With this microwavable silicone popcorn popper — which comes in 12 colors — that won't be the case. The BPA-free, heat-friendly design can pop up to 15 cups of popcorn at a time, and it isn't nearly as loud (or as slow) as traditional popping techniques. Plus, it's collapsible, so you can store it in your kitchen drawer until you're craving popcorn again.
25. A Hydration Backpack That's Holds 2 Liters Of Water
Whether you have a big hiking trip coming up or if you're packing for your next music festival, this insulated hydration backpack — which is sold in 12 colors — is worth considering.

And since the liquid compartment is 100% leakproof, you don't have to worry about your other items getting soaked.
26. A Camping Hammock That Creates A Cozy Bed Between Trees
Hammocks are one of the best inventions, if you ask me — but it's important that they're durable. That's why this extra-sturdy carabiner hammock is such a must. With a strong carabiner on each end of the straps, the hammock — which is made with parachute nylon — is able to hold up to 500 pounds at a time (though, it's designed to fit two people comfortably). It also comes in dozens of color combinations, including camouflage and floral prints.
27. A Handheld Mixer That Conveniently Stores The Whisks
I love a high-quality, handheld mixer. I don't, however, love trying to locate the whisks that go along with it. Fortunately, this convenient mixer makes keeping tabs on the whisks super easy. It comes with a container that you can attach to the bottom of the device when you're not using it — and that space can be used to store your attachments. That way, you'll never lose your pieces again.
28. An Extra-Wide Toaster That's Great For Cooking Bagels
Yes, you can totally cut your bread extra-thin (or slice your bagels into thirds) — but a better idea is stocking your kitchen with this extra-wide toaster. The slots are large enough to fit thick toast and hearty bagel halves, so you can easily toast your faves without ruining them in the process. It comes with a "Bagel," "Frozen," and "Cancel" button (as well as a timer), so you can tailor it to your exact needs.
29. A Collapsible Dish Rack That Saves Space In Your Kitchen
If looking for new ways to organize your dish situation at home, this dish rack can come in handy.

Plus, it's totally collapsible, so you can easily tuck it underneath your cabinet when your dishes are done drying.
30. A Plush Heating Pad With Magnets For A Secure Fit
If you constantly have a sore neck and shoulders, consider adding this popular heating pad to your arsenal of self-care goods.

The pad also comes with four customizable heat settings that'll make the plush fabric even cozier. Choose from four soothing colors: green, burgundy, sapphire, and tan brown.
31. This Ice Tray That Creates Spherical Cubes
When you plop one of the spherical cubes from this innovative ice tray into your glass, it'll be able to cool your beverage without watering it down (because it'll melt at a slower rate than other cubes). The mold itself is made of BPA-free silicon and includes a plastic base for easy transport. You can buy a tray with four cube slots, or you can buy one with eight. And if you don't want to use them for boozy drinks, you can fill them with iced coffee.
32. The Vacuum-Sealed Storage Bags That Save Space
If you're someone who regularly switches out their clothes from season to season, it'll help to have these vacuum-sealed storage bags.

Do you wish you could make coffee like your local barista does? Well, with this BPA-free coffee and espresso press, you can.

34. A Vegetable Slicer That Catches Your Zoodles As You Go
To help make your veggies appetizing (and more like noodles), add this spiralizing slicer to your kitchen cabinet. It has five blades to expertly twist and dice your produce — but there are six- and seven-blade options, as well. And since it comes with a built-in lid, you can even use the device to store your veggies before it's time to actually cook them. It's also super convenient that the container underneath catches the slices as you go.
35. A Stainless Steel Tea Infuser That Hooks Onto You Mug
I love a good loose-leaf tea. If you do, too, then it's time to buy this stainless steel tea ball infuser. Its tight, screw-top lid and intricate mesh cup let you easily drop loose-leaf into your mug without the risk of particles floating around. And since it comes with a little chain, you just hook it onto the edge of your cup to let it steep. Then, you can remove it at your desired strength.
