Promising review: “Wow!!! Best slides I’ve ever had. I have designer slides and these surpass. True to size.They are super light but sturdy to walk, even on grass and on uneven side walk. Used them to walk my dogs and don’t get my feet dirty because of the wedge height. I’ve put them to the test and I’m Ordering in more colors and a back up pair. They are also stylish so they look cute to wear out. Ordered the orange which is like a camel color. Highly recommend!!!” —Krizia

Promising review: “I have used so many products before and this is the best so far! I even got a whitening kit from my dentist which is supposed to be very effective but it only burned my gums and the whitening wasn’t as fast as this product. I bought this just because it was not expensive and had good reviews but didn’t have any hopes it would work because it was a lot more affordable than the Dr’s kit that cost me hundreds of dollars. It is very easy to use. It actually works even after first application. It doesn’t burn gums. It doesn’t make your teeth sensitive.” —Melinda

Each set comes with a curling rod, two hair scrunchies, a claw hair clip, and two duckbill hair clips to set it in place. These work best if you roll them with damp hair!
Promising review: “Before purchasing, I’d seen a lot of reviews and tutorials on TikTok showing the results. My hair is thick, coarse, and naturally wavy, so I figured this might be a good alternative to rollers that are time-consuming to put in, difficult to sleep in, and ultimately not worth it. And MAN was I right to be hopeful. Wrap pieces of damp hair around it before bed, the tighter the wrap, the tighter the curl. Easy to sleep in since there’s nothing on the back of your head, and my curls are BOUNCY the next morning. My only complaint is that it doesn’t help give any top-volume, but that’s nothing some teasing can’t fix. 10/10. I’ll never go back to a curling iron.” —Mariah
Get it from Amazon for $8.98+ (available in nine colors).

24. A dozen Bottle Bright tablets that’ll deep clean your thermoses and on-the-go bottles — no scrubbing required. These’ll get into all those hard-to-reach spaces and remove *all* the gunk.
Promising review: “My kids tend to take drinks to their rooms and leave them there for days (weeks) until I come across them. When it’s something like a smoothie that has been sitting in the reusable bottles is just caked on and very difficult to get clean. I can’t just pop them in the dishwasher. One of these tablets with warm water gets them looking like new again. I can’t get over how clean these bottles come. We have bottles and jugs of all different sizes since my kids play sports and we are away at tournaments frequently. These are a convenient way to make sure all our containers are clean and ready to go. I would certainly recommend there if your family uses bottles frequently.” —NewHopeBuyer
