1. Improve circulation and reduce pain
Whether you're kicking back, traveling or recovering from a workout, you can benefit from a pair of compression socks. The upsides are endless: They'll boost circulation in your legs, help reduce pain and swelling and even support your veins. Frequent travelers swear by them for long flights.
Tommie Copper socks specifically target the arch and heel, helping relieve soreness and aches, and aiding in muscle recovery (say, after a tough workout). Plus, the socks have grippers to prevent slipping when walking around sans shoes.
2. For brows that wow
Beloved beauty brand Benefit is well known for products that help highlight the eye area. Along with luxe-looking lashes, they've also got you covered in the brow department. With the recent trend of fuller brows and with the understanding that some of us may still be recovering from over-plucking done in the early aughts, this Gimme Brow+ Tinted Volumizing Eyebrow Gel offers an easy fix.
The gel is infused with tiny microfibers that adhere to skin and existing hairs to create a fuller appearance and can be layered for extra intensity. Choose from four shades to find the one that suits you, and go from brow to "wow!" in an instant. This set comes with one full-size tube and one travel-size so you'll never find yourself without a fix.
3. Get a grip
Use this versatile-as-hell adhesive as rug tape to prevent slippage on slick surfaces or to hang holiday decorations from a variety of surfaces. One happy customer shares that she was able to hang her heavy wooden Christmas decorations from her brick exterior with no problem: "I used extra tape, and after being out there through the entire five-week Christmas season, I had to pry them off with a hammer. I have shared it with my neighbors, and they love it. Now I'm buying more!"
Another pleased purchaser reports, "This is amazing. I think up places I can use this. My son has a phone holder that attaches to the windshield and kept falling off. Well, not anymore."
4. Use diamonds in the kitchen
Slice through a bounty of produce with the help of this sleek set. The trio comes with a chef's knife, Santoku knife and paring knife for all your kitchen needs, plus protective sheaths for each. The unique textured blade allows air to flow between the metal and whatever it is you're cutting so that it slides off the blade with ease. No more clingy onions here!
One user shares, "I now have two sets of these knives, along with other sets. They sharpen beautifully and hold their sharpness fairly well...they slice very thinly, and no squishing. I use mine at some point every day, and am very pleased with the quality, durability and price."
5. Tame those tangles
Thanks to its highly heat-resistant bristles, this fan favorite makes blow drying a breeze. It easily detangles even the most unruly of hair — painlessly and effortlessly — and works well on both wet and dry tresses. Pro tip: Brush gently from the bottom up in sections for the best results.
Choose from multiple colors, including teal and peach. One customer shares, "I have been struggling with hair shedding for years, and this brush is a game changer. It doesn't pull or tug at my hair." And this user seals the deal, saying, "It's so lightweight and easy to clean. Plus, my hair looks fuller and smoother than with any other brush on the planet!"
6. Ensure you've always got power
You know how frustrating it can be when your remote dies at the exact moment you want to turn on your favorite show? And it becomes doubly frustrating when you can't find a working battery anywhere in the house. Yeah, we've all been there. This Battery Pro Organizer and Tester should help change all that. First, you'll know right where to look when you find yourself in need of power. And then if you're not sure if the battery is dead or the item you're powering up is faulty, use the attached tester to easily find the answer.
Choose from five case colors to hold up to 100 batteries. The package even comes with wall anchors and screws so you can hang it for ultra-easy access. Power on!
7. Have a whale of a time with your tea
Fill the whale's body with your favorite tea leaves and drop it into a mug of hot water. The silicone is heat-safe, so the little guy will be just fine no matter how scalding you like your brew. When you're done steeping, simply pull up on the spray of "water" coming from his spout to free Willy (sorry, I had to) and get to enjoying your cuppa.
This Fred and Friends Brew Whale Tea Infuser will make overnight guests giggle and give you a jolt of joy when you're in search of a jolt of caffeine.
8. Flaunt flawless skin
This discreet precision hair removal tool works wonders on the upper lip, chin and cheeks. It's super gentle (I use it regularly and get no irritation, as I have from other products) and has a light to illuminate every strand you're looking to shear. Turn it on, set it flat against your skin, and move it around in a circular motion. Empty the mini canister and you'll be amazed. Plus, it helps create a super smooth canvas for your makeup routine and can minimize caking.
There's also a Flawless Touch specifically designed for brows, with a more tapered head that you can use to virtually erase all unwanted hair between and surrounding your brows. A happy customer sums it up nicely: "No pain, no pull, no cuts."
9. Take care of chapped lips
The BlushLips double-sided exfoliating lip brush is made of textured silicone (one side is finer than the other) to help slough away dead skin and leave behind smooth, kissable lips.
One user shares that it's a simple concept that leads to dramatic results: "[My lips] would peel and sometimes bleed, despite using top-of-the-line moisturizers. I use this once a day after brushing my teeth and have seen a great improvement in the skin integrity of my lips. It helps to make the moisturizers I use more effective."
10. Cool down and light up
Most indoor spaces have fans and lighting to keep them comfortable and illuminated, so why not bring those features to the outdoors? Whether you use this 2-in-1 light and fan in a tent while camping or in the garage as you tinker, it's sure to do the trick. And if you don't want both features on at the same time, they can be used independently as well.
This LED fan/light has a collapsible hanging hook and a swivel head so you can light up and cool down at any angle you please. This cool tool will certainly come in handy as the weather continues to heat up.
