Promising review: "Does exactly what I want it to! I fill it up at night and it's ready in the morning. I fill it a little over halfway and that makes enough for me for two days. So good and easy. When you get it, you have to pull the plunger up to open it." —Melissajane

Price: $14.79

Promising review: "This stuff is awesome! A little goes a long way and I love how it turns white when it's dry. The color makes it easier to apply to ensure you don't miss a spot. I didn't need to sand after using it on drywall and even used it to fill in scratches on a windowsill from my cat. It's also very easy to clean up if you drop some or get it on fabric. It did shrink a hair, but I think it's because I did way too thin of a coat (like 1/32-inch). If you have something that literally takes paint off the wall like gorilla tape, this product fills in the holes very nicely. I did holes up to 2 inches across and down to the brown paper of drywall and it worked great. It also comes off your skin very easily with warm water and soap. This also stays good a while after you have been opening and closing the lid." —MV

Promising review: "I’ve been wanting to give this cup a try and this was my first time trying it. Let’s just say I FREAKING LOVE IT! Please understand you have to be patient when inserting it (it has that in the directions too). There are three different ways of inserting it so you have to figure out what works best for you. I was skeptical because of some of the reviews but by getting the right size and taking my time (she’s delicate ya know :-) ) I can’t even tell that it’s in there! A proper seal will guarantee no leaks, if you have leaks it’s still folded, again reading the directions will help tremendously! Trust me." —KP KP KP

Promising review: "Love this kit! I’m able to give myself a manicure in fifteen minutes! If you follow the directions with prep and purchase the top coat, it'll work perfectly! I’ve had my nails last two weeks without chipping or peeling. And the products smell good. :)" —ldelcid2

Promising review: "I have fallen in love with the coverage of this sponge, and I don't care who knows it. For something under $10, the performance is unbelievable. As in FULL COVERAGE. It takes some getting used to because you really have to wet the sponge and apply it very differently from traditional sponges. But once you do... girl. FLAWLESS." —The Beauty Bohemian

Price: $5.99

Promising review: "This thing is amazing. Four months later, and I still haven’t charged it besides the first day. Literally the best battery ever." —Becky B

Price: $39.99 (originally $49.99; available in six colors)

Promising review: "I don’t normally write reviews, but after using this cleaner I’m so impressed with how much makeup it got out of my sponges! I didn’t realize how terrible my old sponge wash was until I used this! And it’s a clean product, which makes me love it even more. Really though: It does an amazing job at getting your makeup out of sponges and brushes!" —megwill

Promising review: "Awesome product for dog hair removal. We use them on the furniture, the vehicles, basically everywhere." —Donna

Price: $16.39

Promising review: "I got this Instant Pot because I'm on a lectin-free diet and pressure cooking many foods takes much of the lectin out. I love using this IP because you can do everything with it. Cuts down on dishes and pots and makes cooking a meal so much faster. Love this purchase." —Kristin

Price: $99.99

Promising review: "I would throw away so much wine, cause we would not finish a bottle or two. Now I can vacuum seal it up for the next night. Well worth the money." —best there is

Promising review: "Of course, I got a flat on a Sunday night, and everything was closed. This product was a game changer!! I was able to use it and repair my tire enough to hold the air until I could take it in the following morning to be properly fixed. I am so grateful for this product!! I will always keep a spare can on hand, just in case." —PeachyKeen

Promising review: "This little gadget has transformed my life. It is something that I use every day. It comes to work with me daily with a protein shake in it. Banana pancakes? Avocado pudding? Frothy milkshake? Check. Pulse some pre-sliced veggies? Fluffy omelette? Iced coffee? Check! Easy to clean? Check. This is not a countertop workhorse, so don't buy it for that. I do wish that it was a little bigger. But for small jobs and ease of use, it can't be beat. It takes 10 seconds or less to clean, and you can take it anywhere. I only charge it once or twice a week. And, it is quick and easy to charge." —NOLA TCHR

Promising review: "I purchased this home waxing kit after having it in my cart for a while. I am so happy I finally bit the bullet and purchased this for myself. I did my eyebrows and upper lip for the first time and I am so pleased with the results. I only put a small amount of the waxing beads in the warmer as I was not waxing a large area. While it is something you have to get accustomed to doing yourself, I feel with each time I wax I will get better and better. Will never have to pay for waxing again!!!" —NurseyGirl
