1. A roll-on headache and migraine relief stick, which I haven't stopped talking about it since I first tried it and I don't plan on stopping any time soon
I started using this magical product (which is made with peppermint, spearmint, and lavender essential oils) last year and since then have told approximately 1,089,642 people about it. I keep one in my purse and one on my dresser, and I reorder before I'm actually close to running out. While it won't kill a major migraine on its own, it feels super soothing and cooling. If I end up taking ibuprofen for my headache, this is really nice to use while it kicks in. Also, if I just have a slight headache or just the beginnings of one, a few swipes of this (lightly on my temples and forehead and as heavily as I want on my neck) can actually knock it out or delay it getting worse. It's so great to help me get through my busy workdays and social activities, and I really wish I'd had it during high school and college to help me get through the day then!
Promising review: "I have no earthly idea why this works, but it brought me back from the dead after an 11-day headache. I found it worked better to rub it all over my hot pack, zap it in the microwave, and wrap it around the base of my neck. The aromatherapy was great, and it dulled my headache enough to restore my will to live. 5/5." —Katie B.
2. Pus-absorbing, pimple-eliminating patches over 2,000 reviewers rely on to zap their zips faster than they ever thought possible.
Promising review: "Okay, what is this sorcery?? I can't believe I never knew these existed. I seriously felt like a teenager again last weekend. Literally days after talking about how great my skin has been, this giant, painful, bulging zit was starting to form right in the middle of my chin. A week before my cousin's wedding, naturally. It was like it wouldn't stop growing, and spot treatment solution was doing absolutely nothing. It hurt so bad, and I couldn't help trying to pop it, but it refused. Then I heard about these. I placed one on my chin the second they arrived in the mail. After a few hours, I saw the white forming and I was curious and peeled it off. Then I put a fresh one on before bed, and come the next morning...HOLY COW, the entire dot of the patch was now a giant white blob. This zit was no joke. It's amazing how much fluid/pus had to get sucked out. Like I said, this is some magic. The zit completely went away within a day." —Heather R. Weather
Price: $4.60 for a box of 36
3. Vivienne Sabó Cabaret Premiere mascara, a cruelty-free, luxe-looking formula that over 1,400 reviewers love for looking glam on a budget.
Promising review: "I never write reviews for things, but this mascara was just so great I felt like I had to! I love lashes, and my friends are used to me wearing thick coats of mascara at all times. Despite this, I got complimented on my lashes basically every time I wore this mascara this week. Multiple people even asked if I had extensions! This mascara isn't clumpy at all, and it makes your lashes super long and defined without sticking them together. I've never had any problems with flaking, and although it isn't waterproof, I've definitely used eyedrops, shed a tear, and gotten stuck in rain without it smudging or running down my face. All in all this is my new holy grail mascara, and I'm thrilled!!" —Sophie Johnson
4. A genius dish squeegee sure to make anyone who has ever done dishes and touched icky leftover food or struggled to clean up a countertop spill say, "Where have you been all my life?!?!"
It's BPA-free and dishwasher safe! Plus, one side is curved so it works on bowls as well as plates.
Promising review: "This product is AMAZING. We live in a studio apartment with a small kitchenette. Our sink likes to spray everywhere, and we don't have a garbage disposal. This product is not only is fantastic at scraping food off of our plates (so it doesn't go down the drain), but it helps to squeegee the countertop when water has sprayed everywhere!!" —Elizabeth
5. A pair of top-quality in-ear headphones that I personally love, but you don't have to take my word for it. You can also take the word of over 47,000 people who've left positive reviews.
I actually bought a pair of these earlier this year and I love them! I don't get excited about electronics and didn't think I would see what all the fuss was about, but I do. First of all, I love all the colors they come in (I got metallic purple) and the sound quality. And they are COMFY!!!! Yes, you do have to get used to figuring out which side goes in which ear because they are a little oddly shaped, but that's what makes them feel great — they've got a flat part that lies on the flat part of your ear (very technical terms I know) so they feel like a perfect fit. Plus, they come with three different sets of ear pads in different sizes so you can make them just right for you.
Promising review: "Compared to MANY other earbuds that I've had that cost $75, $100, $150...these sound as good as any of them. I'm astounded! I use these for running. I figured for $8, I could afford to sweat up a few of these and replace them whenever I needed to. I'VE RUN 1,500 MILES WITH THESE in the last year and a half! I've gone through four pairs of New Balance shoes, two iPod Shuffles, three pairs of sunglasses, and I'm on the SAME set of earbuds! And THEY STILL SOUND GREAT! They stay in my ears, too!" —Gene Goodell
