Products You’ll Probably Be So In Love With Your Partner Might Get Jealous

by Kayla Boyd

1. Illuminating nail concealer to give your nails a chic, natural look that’s trendy, yet timeless and way less expensive than a trip to the salon. Reviewers love it because it hides any unwanted yellow tint and helps give brittle nails a smooth appearance. “Sorry boo, we can’t cuddle until after my fresh mani dries.” 💅

Reviewers love how buildable this polish is. Additionally, Londontown is a small business that primarily sells nail care.

Promising review: “I’m not a big review writer but I had to write one about this polish! Now, it has only been a few days but so far it has been the best nail polish I have ever used! I was hesitant because it’s way more than I have ever spent on a nail polish. But it is so worth it. I don’t know why it seems so different but it was easy to apply and looks as good as when I get a manicure. I have never had that when I have done my own nails! So far, I am hooked!” —jenc

2. A “flossing toothbrush” that has an extra layer of long, thin bristles to deep clean between your teeth. It’s gentle enough for people with sensitive gums, but still strong enough to break up plaque and brush away food residue. Plus, it comes in a two-pack so you can pretend that you got it for your partner, but really it’s for you. We won’t tell.

3. An Essence cruelty-free lengthening mascara, which over 200,000 people swear by! It’s affordable, lengthening, volumizing, and way easier to apply than fake lashes. What else could you ask for in a soulmate… I mean beauty product?

I have this mascara and it is my FAVORITE! I am constantly buying more when I run out. Plus, it’s so dang affordable. Check out my in-depth Lash Princess mascara review.

Promising review: “Love it, love it, love it!!! You really look like you have fake eyelashes on. This mascara is amazing! It’s not thick and lumpy, and it glides on smoothly and precisely. You feel like you had a makeup artist do your eyes!!! It lasts all day — no touch-up required, no smearing, no clumping. I use soap and warm water to remove. I am 500% completely happy and satisfied!” —Very Dissatisfied !!

4. And a helpful eyelash comb to assist you in separating your lashes and removing any unwanted clumps, without getting mascara all over your fingers. Honestly, genius.

5. Or a lash-lifting kit for anyone who would rather not fuss with mascara or falsies at all. This will help you give your natural lashes an at-home perm that can last for 4 to 6 weeks! You’ll be shocked at how much difference a simple lift and curl can make. 

a reviewer's progression of their lashes

This kit includes lash glue, lash perm, lash fixation, lash nutrition, lash cleanser, five silicone pads, three lash cleaning brushes, 10 lash micropores, 10 brushes, and five gel under-eye pads. 

Promising review: Okay I’m not gonna lie, I was worried that this stuff would either not work at all or make all my lashes fall out. Thankfully, it was neither and the results are UNREAL. I HIGHLY suggest watching some YouTube videos of other people using their perm kits before attempting to use yours. I have big fingers and small eyes so it was difficult for me to get the lift pads in the right positions but once that was over, the rest was a breeze. Unlike some of the other kits I’ve seen on here, this one has basically everything you need. The only other things I needed were a mirror, some tissue, and a little bit of plastic wrap to cover my lashes while waiting for the lotions to work their magic. I’m totally impressed and will definitely be buying this again! —Ryan

6. A jar of The Pink Stuff — this famous all-purpose cleaning paste has over 140,000 5-star reviews for a reason! 🌟 It can help remove even the toughest stains, dirt, grime, and rust from your appliances, walls, dishes, glass, floors, you name it! You’ll be using it so much that your partner might start to suspect that you enjoy spending time with your beloved Pink Stuff more than them.

Promising review: “Honestly I was very skeptical when I first purchased. Everyone on social media was talking about how amazing this product was for cleaning around the house and I just thought they were all jumping on some kind of bandwagon. Of course I caved and had to try it for myself. Needless to say I’m very impressed! It removed stubborn mold and grime from my shower tile grout with use of a hard-bristle toothbrush. It removed hard water stains from my sinks and faucets. I noticed it really does remove mineral buildup, but it takes a lot of elbow grease and repetitive applications before you start seeing progress. The texture feels similar to when you mix honey with sugar to make a lip scrub, except it’s super-fine grit and more pasty like putty or clay. It works amazing so far! No overpowering smell (barely any smell at all), easy to use, and a little product goes a long way. I haven’t tried it on rust yet so we’ll see how that goes. Overall very pleased and impressed so far. Highly recommend!” —Marissa

9. A garbage disposal cleaner that foams up to help break down any lingering food residue. Now you won’t smell a yucky, rotting aroma every time you go to do the dishes.

Promising review: “Seeing is believing. Not only does it do a great job, but you can see it happening. It doesn’t just mask the smell and leave a lemon scent like some products, it cleans too and looks fun. Idk. Blue foam comes out and that’s good enough for me.” —sylvie yah

Promising review: “I really didn’t realize how well it worked until I took the after picture. Then I felt bad that I had not done this before. Let me start by saying I did not even do this everyday. I am bad about starting something and not finishing it, but I did use the two tubes that I purchased. I plan on purchasing two more so I can get my teeth whiter. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to get their teeth whiter.” —Sherri Blanchard

Promising review: “These travel pill cases are totally worth it! We are always out and about traveling, and this case helps keep the travel pharmacy organized! No more clunky pill bottles. The pill case is very sturdy and has a clasp that stays tightly latched. The compartments on the inside are easy to open with plenty of storage for pills. I was able to fit about 10 larger pills into the smaller compartments. It’s nice to have the larger compartments too. You can fit wrapped cough drops or other medications in those. Highly recommend!!” —Sydney Harsh

12. Lee Beauty’s Callus Remover — it gives pro pedicurists a run for their money. The extra strength gel helps remove stubborn calluses and dead skin and smooths rough patches that you probably thought were just a permanent part of your feet at this point. Just soak your dogs in warm water, dry ’em off, apply the gel for 5–10 minutes, rinse, and use a pumice stone or foot file to finish the job.

BUT please follow the directions…left it on my super dry thick callused heels for only three minutes and the calluses were literally melting off! Wonderful product! So glad I don’t have to go soak my feet in those used tubs at the nail salon anymore.” —Kiki

13. A bottle of Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray because you didn’t work that hard to achieve the perfect cut crease just for it to fade away within a couple of hours! Thanks so this must-have spray, your face beat will be locked in for up to 16 hours, without smudging! I’m sorry, but Idk how your partner will compete with that.

Jenae Sitzes / BuzzFeed

BuzzFeed shopping editor Jenae Sitzes has this and absolutely loves it:

 “I first put this setting spray to the test for a wedding that involved taking many trains in and out of Manhattan on a hot day and being in crowded rooms where airflow was ~limited~. As such, I was sweating up a storm, but my makeup looked *flawless* by the time I got home that night — all thanks to this Urban Decay setting spray that I knew after one use I’d be repurchasing. I’m new to setting sprays, so it felt weird at first to spray something *on top* of my carefully crafted makeup look, but it dried in no time without messing anything up. It also didn’t feel heavy or sticky on my face — it didn’t feel like anything at all, actually — and my makeup looked better than it ever has after hours of wear. (For reference, I have dry, sensitive skin, and it caused me no issues.) 

Soon after that event, I put it to an even bigger task: surviving sweat, tears, and 12 hours of wear for the Taylor Swift Eras Tour. My makeup look (pictured above) was done by 2 p.m., and thanks to my now highly trusted Urban Decay spray, it stayed completely intact (minus the lipstick I purposefully wiped off while scarfing down post-concert pizza) until the time I got home just after 2 a.m. Here’s what it endured during that timespan: multi-leg public transportation to and from the venue, waiting in lines under the blaring sun to get in, multiple meals and drinks, jumping, screaming, and literally full-on crying multiple times during the show. My liquid eyeliner, eyeshadow, non-waterproof mascara, foundation, blush, and even glitter (for the most part) were unfazed, and I owe it all to this setting spray.”

Get it from Amazon for $17+ (available in three sizes) or Sephora for $17+ (available in two sizes).

14. A soothing saline nasal gel that can help moisturize your dry, stuffy nose. We all know how annoying that mid-winter dryness can be, but thanks to this non-greasy aloe gel, you don’t have to suffer through it.

Promising review: “I don’t like to talk about it, but every year my nose becomes super dry to the point where I sometimes get a bloody nose. I usually use some squeeze saline, but it got so bad this year that I decided to get this gel. A dab on a finger or a swab and my nose is hydrated, moistened, and not dry as a desert. No winter bloody noses! It is very light, is not slimy or like Vaseline, and it does not have any smell.” —Catherine

15. A wood polish and conditioner to transform your old, worn-down furniture into the highlight of your house. It’ll enhance the natural beauty of any wooden antiques, tables, cabinets, and more.

Promising review: “This stuff is absolutely AMAZING. My wife and I were getting tired of looking at our worn-out cabinets and wood paneling and were very close to paying a professional thousands of dollars to refinish it all, but then we came across this product. Our paneling and cabinets were looking rough. We have two dogs that jumped up and scratched places; we also had an area that was damaged by water spots where our dog bowls were, and several other areas that were just worn from heavy traffic. This stuff was like a magic eraser for water spots, scratches, scuffs, and any other blemish. We simply wiped the product on with a paper towel and let it sit for 20 minutes before wiping it off with a clean towel. Everything looks brand new. I’m buying a couple more so we can finish our cabinets and wood paneling. We’re so glad we found this product.” —Kris

Promising review: “I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!!! I found it on TikTok and OMG!! It works so well. I don’t have to sit there and rub the crap out of my eyelashes to get the waterproof mascara off. I will admit, it doesn’t take 100% of the makeup off but about 95% of my makeup comes off. It is not water-resistant, as emulsifying it with water helps take the makeup off. I have not found a better makeup remover, and yes, that includes micellar water (which also works well but leaves my skin feeling oily). With this cleansing balm, my face feels hydrated and smooth. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!!!!!! 1,000/10 would recommend!!!” —Deetje Frederick

Promising review: “After using this product, I am happy to report that my $5 investment saved me over $500. I was ready to replace my dishwasher due to super cloudy glasses, residue, and dishes just not getting clean. Then, I became aware that the water softener was no longer doing its job so I had the rental company replace it. Dishwasher performance improved somewhat. I decided to do two more loads before deciding to purchase a new one. Then I saw a product test review for Affresh. I was ordering some stuff from Amazon anyway so I added that to my order. When it came, I tossed one of the tablets into the bottom of the full machine per the instructions and ran the regular cycle. I did not expect the results I got! The glassware that I thought was permanently etched and ruined came out like new. Same with cutlery. The difference is unbelievable. I will use this faithfully every month, as recommended. I can even put it on my subscribe and save order so I will get a new pack every six months. I am amazed!” —Sheila

Although, gray hair is honestly pretty fierce, so feel free to let those silvery strands shine!

Promising review: “I use this in between my monthly ‘cut and color’ trips to the beauty salon. That third week really shows the grey roots, so I use this until my next appointment. A few sprays along the hairline and part, and I am ready to go. It will stay for a couple of days if you don’t have to wash your hair daily. Otherwise, it will wash right out with your shampoo. The red that I buy is a more auburn color, and gives a great look to my hair. I buy this on a regular basis. One can lasts about 10 applications of touch-ups for me.” —Jean

Each spike can be used for 30–60 days, depending on the season.

Promising review: “I always kill my plants but I decided to try again. I just bought five houseplants, and three of them were marked down because they were looking pretty puny. Since I tend to kill them anyway, I figured I would give them a try and save some money. I put one of these spikes in each plant and they all looked so much healthier and happier after just a couple days. I also added one spike to the only houseplant that I’ve had for years without killing (I was beginning to think it was artificial), and the leaves looked healthier almost immediately. I’m very happy with this product, and it was at a great price.” —victoria

It rubs into skin like lotion so you don’t feel greasy and can immediately put on clothes after application. A little goes a long way! It smells good without being overpowering (and I’m picky about scents!). Most importantly, it works! I’ve had everything from slight burn to looks-like-a-lobster-feels-like-fire and this sun soother has eliminated the pain/itch and drastically reduced the eventual peel. Highly recommend!” —jlgentr3

We’ve scrubbed with what seems like a million different products, with no luck. We were actually just talking about ripping out the caulking and doing a total replacement. But, my husband saw this online the other day and decided to order it. Almost immediately when he applied it, you could see it was starting to work.

I plan on getting it again and again. I always have it in my bag at work just in case. I did find it necessary to reapply if I took my shoes off and put them on again.” —Donna

Promising review: “I don’t usually do reviews on products, but for this one I absolutely have to. I have 3c type hair and struggle with a lot a breakage, unmanageability, and moisture. When my mom mentioned this product to me, I didn’t take her seriously because of the simple fact that we have two completely different hair textures. I never would have thought this brand would work on my hair … I have never in my 22 years felt my hair like this. I feel like I have a completely different head of hair. This product is so amazing and I will FOREVER be using this product in my hair regimen.” —Theressa Hailey

33. A bottle of nontoxic Folex Carpet Spot Remover to finally get rid of that huge spaghetti stain in the middle of your living room carpet. Just spritz some on the stain, wait a few seconds, and blot it up. It’s like magic!

To use, apply to the stain, gently agitate with your fingers, and blot with an absorbent cloth. This is nontoxic and should be nonirritating on the skin!

Promising review: “I had terrible rust and oil stains all over the seats of my car when I bought it. I tried other cleaners to get it out, but they actually made the stains darker. I took it to the dealership to see if they could get it out and they flat out told me no, so I gave up and lived with it for almost five years. I tried this after it was recommended by a friend. I sprayed it on and literally watched the stain run right off my seat. It was amazing! I thought I was going to have to pay hundreds of dollars to replace the seats in my car because nothing else would work. This stuff really is awesome!” —Brittany

Promising review: “I had peeling, weak nails for years. Tried everything. I bought this in February. This size bottle lasted a bit more than a month religiously applying it two to three times a day. I was really seeing great improvement so I bought another bottle in late March. By May, all the peeling had grown out and my nails were getting stronger every day. I then bought the big 4-ounce refill bottle because I never want to run out of it again! Cannot recommend this stuff enough!” —Diana

Promising review: “I’ve always been kind of sick. I throw up on long car rides, I can’t read in the car, I get horrible migraines 24/7, etc. Recently I changed medications and because of that, my migraines came back with a vengeance. Thinking there was nothing I could do I kind of gave up, until, I was looking at BuzzFeed and saw this in their recommended. I thought it could help with any car sickness that I would get but man I was not giving these enough credit! Since I have bought them I wear them ALL. THE. TIME. I wear them in and out of the car, to bed, and just around the house. I no longer feel nauseous and my migraines are almost non existent. Whoever invented these are a freaking god! I don’t know think I could ever live without these! BUY THESE!! They’re so worth it.” —JohnDz

Promising review: “I bought this in desperation after having elbow surgery, which left me unable to wash my own hair. I have tried countless dry shampoo sprays and have been disappointed every time. But this? Absolutely 100% game changer. It kept my hair feeling clean and oil free for several days at a time. It’s easy to use, absorbs in quickly, no white residue on my dark hair, and you don’t need much. I will never buy another brand again. This is my holy grail of dry shampoo.” —Bad Girl

Promising review: My older model Whirlpool washing machine had been smelling very bad for about two months. We tried everything, white vinegar, beach, etc., it would stay fresh smelling for two days then back to the bad moldy smell. I read this product works so I ordered it. Used one tablet and the smell is gone!!! It has been three weeks now and it just smells fresh, no strong perfume odor either! Buy this product you will not regret it!!!” —A.C.

These come with a wireless charging case that provides up to 14 hours of charge (with the earbuds able to play for four-plus hours with each full charge). 

Promising review: “Best decision! These are the greatest headphones ever! I saw them on TikTok months ago and added them to my wishlist. I got a new phone that doesn’t have the headphone port so I decided it was time to finally buy them. They are amazing and I probably won’t ever take them out of my ears! 😂” —Kate Arnold

41. A rotating phone mount for relaxing and watching Netflix on the plane, bus, or train, without having to uncomfortably hold your phone the entire time. Just simply clamp it to the top of your seat-back tray (or even your suitcase handle). Idk about you, but watching a good comfort show or movie definitely helps to ease my travel anxiety.

Promising review: “I bought this nifty gadget about six months ago for a multi-leg, ultra-long-haul trip and it more than held up the entire duration. I was able to finagle it to fit the tray tables on different planes, and like others, I find the height just nice when clamped onto a stowed tray table. It also works on my roller carry-on handle during layovers. However, I find myself using it a lot outside of travel too! Work-wise, I’ve clamped it onto my office desk shelving to hold my phone at eye level beside my computer. At home, I simply clamped it to a deck of cards and it turns into a versatile stand that I can place on any flat surface. Heck, I’ve been using it to hold my phone comfortably at eye level while watching videos in bed. It’s extremely well-built, and I find myself fidgeting with it all the time. Thus far it still feels solid and I don’t anticipate breaking it any time soon. Even if it does break, I’ll be happy to buy another one or two of it!” —Earendil
