1. A lawn repair formula that can help fix an embarrassing problem in your yard - scorch marks, pet urine spots, and wear in high-traffic areas. You can start planning your backyard BBQs now!

Promising review: "Follow instructions, 5 stars. I’ve used it multiple times. Let me start by saying my wife thinks you always have to look at the amazon one star reviews before buying something. On this case I disagree. I think most (not all) 1 star reviews came from people that didn’t read the directions.The directions are simple but the 3rd step is most important: 1. rake the area to loosen ground soil, 2. Pour out the ez seed (I recommend almost an inch deep in bare areas), 3, numero tres, do this or die, WATER IT. And I mean water it. Three times a day is great, two will work. Treat it like a baby who needs diapers changed. It doesn’t cry! There’s no poop! It’s easier than a baby! In fact if you have babies, this is better, it’s an excuse to go outside and quietly water the lawn by yourself in silence!I’m going to post some pictures at some point, I’m on my third go around (in different areas). And twice now this season I’ve had good results in week, great results in two to three weeks (watering watering watering until week three).Sun and shade, though obviously sun needs more water. I’ve only done it in northern California grass growing season: April through October. I’ve used it to cover dog pee spots up to 12” wide and also clear weird invasive grass spots up to 3 or 5 feet wide in odd shapes.Please feel free to ask questions, but there are only three steps here.." — J-Mac

2. A pack of sweat-wicking bra liners made from cotton and bamboo to absorb the dreaded under-boob sweat that appears as soon as the temperature starts to rise outside. Reviewers confirm the liners are comfortable, don't smell, and provide sweet, sweet relief!

Promising review: "so I know this thing is doing a great job. My only complaint is that the middle ... I get heat rashes underneath my breasts. I didn’t know what they were until I got an overload of them and it ticked me off enough to research further into it. I don’t know why my body is just now starting to become sensitive but I wanted to prevent the rashes from coming back. I researched that wearing cotton underneath your breasts while in a bra would help soak up the sweat. I work outside and so I decided to find something that would hold up. I bought these with the size guidance of a previous reviewer and ordered a Medium(half my bra band size) and boy was she right! It fits to the armpit length wise. This little thing has soaked up my sweat and I haven’t had a breakout since I started using this. I did forget to put it in one day and I had a few rashes sprout up, so I know this thing is doing a great job.My only complaint is that the middle part of the cotton isnt long enough. I wish it would rise higher between my breasts to help soak any between-boobage sweat. But besides that, I love it!" — Heather

Reviewer's big toes with dark and light spots of fungal growth before. The toenails are growing back and looking healthier after use.

3. If you're looking for an easy way to get rid of unsightly fungal growth on your toenails, this anti-fungal polish is for you. It hydrates and exfoliates brittle nails, helps reduce discoloration and thickness, and only requires one coat daily. You can see results in as little as two days!

Promising review: "For all my toenail fungus struggling friends! This product really works. I’ve been using it for 2 weeks and I already see results. Okay! I’ve been struggling with toenail fungus for a long time!! I’ve tried a lot of other products, including tea tree oil, Manuka oil and others, NOW, those might work for you but they didn’t work for me. I know there’s several strains of toenail fungus so you might just haven’t found your right product yet. Keep on searching! I’ve come a long way from my big toenail on my left foot completely destroyed by fungus to having a 99% strong heathy nail on that toe. You also have to know that treating fungus takes time. If your case is very severe it might literally take years. You absolutely have to be persistent, don’t miss any treatments. Make sure (and this was hard for me since my feet always get cold) to wear socks as less as possible when you’re at home. The more you let your feet breather, the harder it is for fungus to grow. NEXT ONE IS AS IMPORTANT AS THE TREATMENT ITSELF.. cut off all the dead nail affected by fungus that has been detached from the nail bed , even if that means cutting off literally half of your nail. I know it may look ugly, but it’s important to completely eradicate the conditions in which fungus grows easily (under your nail is definitely one). Right now that is exactly what I have on one of my toes and I know it will work because that’s exactly how I cured my other toe. Unfortunately I don’t have pictures because I’m very self conscious about my toes so I didn’t keep any progress pictures on my phone. Wow! Anyways... I know a lot of people struggle with toenail fungus and there can be so many levels of severity, but one thing for sure is you have to be persistent, even if you might not see results right away. Try switching products, trying new things, but don’t stop treating it. Really hope this helps!" — Elena Beglit

4. Use Carpe Antiperspirant Hand Lotion to reduce sweaty and clammy feeling. Simply use a pea-sized amount.

Promising review: "!PARENTS REVIEW! THIS IS A LIFE CHANGING PRODUCT Here's a real review no B.S. I used this product on my 10 year old son. He sweat ALOT on his hands. He would tell me that he was embarrassed at school and he had problems making friends. My son told me he had never shook a hand outside of mine ever before in his life..... it broke me. As a father I knew I had to fix this. I set an appt up with his doc and got nowhere. The doc said it's normal and should go away in the coming years. I asked about surgery and they said it would be around $10,000, so I started saving. Couple weeks went by and I came across this product I asked my son if he was ok with trying it and he desperately said yes. I got it in the mail 2 days after ordering the first time we put it in it stopped the sweat completely and then within 1 hour his hands were dripping wet we needed a paper towel to dry them. My wife and son were so disappointed. I didn't know what to do so I gave it a day and tried it again the second time was the charm his hands are completely dry now. When it worked he started practicing shaking hands and high fives with his brother. It's been 2 weeks now and it is working AMAZING. we use it once a day towards the night time although the first week we did it once in the morning and once at night. I will buy this product for my son till the day I die if I have to it brings so much joy to his life. Thank you to the creators of Carpe my family and I really appreciate you!!!" — HECTOR LORENZO

5. A sunburn soother made with aloe and coconut oil is something you should have on hand for those sunny days when it doesn't seem warm enough to burn (but actually is). You'll be so thankful to have this waiting for you when you get home.

Promising review: "Great for Daily Use This past summer, my husband took me tubing down the Rio Salado for four hours in the Arizona summer sun. I slathered on sunscreen before and applied it again religiously every thirty minutes or so, but there is no SPF strong enough to protect the kind of white that glows in the dark.I tried a dozen other remedies while I was recovering from the burn. I didn't make it to this cream until I had started to shed bits and pieces of me everywhere. That was in June; my legs are still two toned (white and red).I still have the same tube of cream that I bought five months ago, and I use it every day on my hands and face just as my regular moisturizer. It leaves my skin feeling moist but not heavy. I like it.There is a sharp, unfamiliar aroma to the cream, but it doesn't mean that it has gone bad or anything. I think it's probably just all of the goodness coming together, so don't be alarmed when you squirt some out of the tube and notice an unexpected but not necessarily unpleasant aroma." — Brian

Reviewer pic wearing the thigh bands in black lace

6. These anti-chafing bands not only look great, but also do an amazing job of protecting your thighs when you wear dresses and skirts without tights.

Promising review: "Use the size chart, worth the buy! Received my package a few days earlier than expected. Packaging was nice, nothing messed up. I purchased the solid beige bandalettes. I used the size chart and ordered size C. I'm 5'3 200 lb and they fit perfectly. So far I have just tried them on under a pair of shorts and they are comfortable, breatheable enough and I like the rubber lining strip that holds them in place. I experimented with the placement and went higher on the inside of my thigh and a little lower on the outside, not uncomfortable at all. No weird swoosh noise when they rub together. I would suggest hand washing to preserve the rubber no slip strips. I have HORRIBLE chub rub that often leaves me swollen and raw from sweating or fabric rubbing so these seem so far to be a life saver! Will update my review once I've worn them out and about on a hot day 😄Edit: It’s now July 2019 and I’ve gotten 2 full years of use and just now in the past few days is the rubber strip coming off. I’m disappointed but I will definitely be ordering another pair!" — Becky

the oil bottle

7. Some Fur Oil is ready to tackle many of the semi-embarrassing skin issues you've been covering with long pants and sweaters. It helps clear pores, minimize ingrown hairs and bumps, and even reduce razor burn. You can use it ALLL over your body (yes, even your pubic hair) so you're ready to slip on that new suit you've been waiting (not-so) patiently to wear.

Promising review: "Instant results worth more than every penny I bought the trial size one and barely got to use it before it started working. I just recently started getting a couple deep ingrown hairs on my bikini line that are just straight up dark spots cause I’m not about scar myself to get em. I showered and rubbed out the golden bits with a little bit of this stuff and when I awoke the next morning not only were the ingrown hairs perfectly visible from the surface.... MY LANDING STRIP WAS SOFT AS HELL.. I’ve used all kinds of coochy conditioners and I didn’t really feel a difference. I was not expecting this to soften my hair at all and it was such a lovely surprise. Will be buying this for the rest of my days." — Arianna curbelo

8. Don't let chafing stop you from soaking up every last bit of warm weather! Apply some anti-chafe balm to any area that causes you discomfort. The balm looks like deodorant but will easily glide on any part of your body and protect it as you go about your day.

Promising review: "I’m a believer! I am a lifelong curvy lady whose thighs have rubbed together since the beginning of time, probably, so I’m no stranger to chafing. I heard about this product a long time ago, but for some reason I didn’t trust it - it wouldn’t work for me, somehow, and so I disregarded it. I wear cotton bike shorts under my dresses, and that helps a little, but there’s still bare parts of my skin that touch and I can’t wear them with denim shorts, rompers, etc.I continued to read good things, and as summer was fast approaching and we were set to have our first Very Hot weekend of the year, I ordered the smallest size and told myself I’d give it a shot. This morning I applied the balm to my inner thighs under a sundress and spent a day walking around in the heat and sunshine; it was hot, and I was sweating, but miraculously, my thighs felt fine!I applied the balm at around 11:30 am and as I write my review it’s almost 7:30 pm but my legs are going strong. Other parts of me have definitely reacted to being out and about but not my thighs - without this stuff, they would be pink and tender, but they feel soft and happy. I am absolutely impressed.Long story short, this stuff absolutely worked for me; I plan to buy a larger size when this smaller one runs out. Don’t be a doubter like I was!" — Gina

reviewer pic of the two grey odor eliminators inside a pair of hiking bootsreviewer pic of the odor eliminators in a pair of sandals

9. There are some odor eliminators that you can put in any of your shoes, including hiking boots and sandals, to remove the smells that come with wearing them outside now that the temperature is above freezing.

Promising review: "A fantastic product, with one tiny exception These pretty little bags of charcoal are powerhouses for deoderizing your shoes. I haven't used them anywhere else, so I can't vouch for other claims, but for stinky shoes they really get the job done.I walk my dog a mile twice a day, so my hiking shoes get a daily workout. I also must wear orthotics for problem feet, so my feet tend to sweat. When I take off my hikers at bedtime, I put these babies in the damp, smelly shoes overnight, and next morning voila! The shoes and orthotics are dry and have no smell.One BIG caveat, and why I gave them a low score for durability: DO NOT GET THEM WET. I put them out in the sun for a second recharging and it rained befire I could get them back inside. A good soaking apparently changes the composition of the charcoal contents, transforming it from a light weight, particulate material to a mostly solidified mass. I'm trying to dry them inside, but 24 hours later they're still a sodden mess.Next time I'll try putting their replacement in a plastic bag when recharging after checking on whether that could interfere with the effectiveness of sunlight's abiliity to recharge the charcoal)." — Patsy Montana

Revlon oil-absorbing volcanic face rollerReviewer using Revlon oil-absorbing volcanic face roller

10. A volcanic stone face roller will remove all the oil and shine that appears on your face. Reviewers like this option better than oil-blotting sheets because the ball pops out and can be washed, making it a reusable and more sustainable option.

Promising review: "Oh my gawwwd First off, if you have extremely oily skin, this. is. it. I was so tired of getting blotting powder/wipes. It felt wasteful and always left residue on my face. I saw this on tiktok and NEEDED it. It was back ordered but then I got an email saying it was in stock and I was SO excited. Not only is it affordable, but it's washable which helps you save money and be less wasteful. The packaging wasn't over the top exciting, but it provided you all the info you needed. (It felt like the holy grail had been delivered to my front doorstep.) After my first use, I was in love. Now, it doesn't pickup everything but it does make it more matte and gives you a natural look. I am so excited this product exists and I already feel more confident." — Kelsey B.

Promising review: "This ain't it So I bought this because I live alone right now and love to wear dresses. However, as many may know, a lot of dresses have the little tiny zippers. I thought this would work with these since, you know, it literally shows a picture of a woman with a dress. The answer is no: this is only designed to work with those big bulky standard-sized zippers (mostly on men's clothing, jeans, ). If you have dress zippers, forget it. It is literally just a lanyard with a clip on it, too, not some genius invention. It does get two stars because I imagine it probably does work on the big ones..." — Taylor

reviewer showing before and after using the treatment after only 2 weeksreviewer showing three image progress of their toe nail made better by using the treatment

14. An ingrown toenail treatment specifically designed as a little brace you can put on your toenail. It applies gentle force to straighten and strengthen your nails back into a more comfortable position. No need to dread open-toe shoes anymore!

Promising review: "IT WORKS but you have to use it right and that takes tips and practice I ordered this in the beginning of October of 2019 and am writing this review at the end of February 2020. Now I’m going to give some backstory: I started having issues with ingrown toenails on the big toe of both feet in high school, and then I was stupid enough to have enlisted and made it worse because oh my god, those boots okay? So without saying how oooold I am we’re talking 20+ years of ingrown toenails, tried like every thing I could find, and even had a surgery that didn’t work but was so very traumatizing and lost me half a toenail for more than a year, and it all failed.This. Works.I had this on my wishlist for a while before buying, because it IS expensive, but I finally hit the point where I was like “it looks promising so let’s get it because this is getting past unbearable and I am tired of doing nail trimming yoga to do the necessary pruning to have painless toenails.” I ordered it, it came, and yes I read the instructions in advance before trying it. We’ll get to the tips for how to use it later, but suffice to say that it DOES take a little practice to get it on really good. However it isn’t as hard as some of the other reviews make it out to be, once you figure it out. But again, more on that later.I’m going to start with it wasn’t the most comfortable thing at first, not at all. It made my toes tender when I started them, for a couple days but no more than that. Yes, it could be interpreted as a bruised feeling, but frankly the ingrown toenails hurt me worse and I have a higher than normal pain tolerance anyway so it was tolerable for me. for others, putting this on before a couple days of staying at home might be the best course of action. However, I noticed a change right away. For me, because the cuts I used on my nails was so deep, I placed 2 strips the first time I put them on; one at the mid-nail to lift the cut out of the skin groove, and the other at the tip to keep it up, too. (I did put it on other toes, as well, that was a terrible idea, please check the tips for the different strengths because it’s important. But it worked on those too, just with bruising painfulness.) The relief was pretty much immediate, no lie the pain from the ingrown nails was gone nearly the moment I got it on. It was tender and sensitive where it had been dug in for a few days to a week, but even that little bit got better, too. And then was the slow growing out process, and reapplying, and getting way better at that too, and even more waiting.Now to the reason I have done the review now, and how I know it works 100%. It’s been about a month since the last time I had them on, and I will be putting them back on for another period soon to continue this, but last week I was binging on Netflix and had a foot propped up and absently ran my finger over my big toenail. It. Felt. Weird. I freaked out, because why would I have a ridge in my nail?? But lo, after inspecting, I got really really REALLY excited, because I DO have a ridge, but it’s not a ridge. IT IS NEW NAIL GROWTH IN THE APPROPRIATE CURVE TO NOT GROW BACK INGROWN. So that right there proved to me that while I was sure it was working because the ingrown nail is over the skin and long enough not to go back in, and it’s not hurting, and everything is fine. It has corrected the sharp curve cutting it back so far created, and all the new nail growth is going to be normal again.I CAN’T STRESS ENOUGH THAT IT WAS A PROCESS BUT IT WAS SO WORTH IT.Now, the tips and tricks.1. The biggest one is that this is the curve strength for the big toenail, not any other nail. You can order other strength kits on their website, or as they specify you can also narrow this one to be weaker for smaller nails. Don’t just put this on anything but the big toe. If you put it on the big toe and it feels bruising, take it off and thin it out, it’s too strong for that nail.2. You can contact their customer service to order new strips sans the kit.3. When applying, roughing the nail is so needed, it makes the glue stick better. Make sure you take that step instead of skipping it.4. A pair of tweezers to sit the strip with glue on it in place is very helpful, and not putting too much glue is also helpful. Less is more.5. Don’t use the swabs in the kit for what they’re for. Use regular swabs, and take the ones from the kit and use those wooden ends to hold the strip down while the glue sets. The longer you hold it tight to the nail while the glue dries, the longer lasting it is. Rotate the swab so it doesn’t get glued down while doing this.6. The strips stay on for ages if properly applied, and the company has reassured me that you can reuse them. So do that instead of ordering more if you can!7. If you are ready to reapply the strip, you can help with the initial “I just put this on and the ingrown area hurts as it lifts out” with liberal application of Neosporin and many bandaids to keep it in.Pretty sure that is all the tricks I learned. It takes practice. If you fail at first, keep trying. Use acetone or something to clean the glue off, and go for it again until you get it right. It’s like anything else, you are not going to get it perfect the first try. Perfection isn’t even necessary, good enough will work because that is what happened to me most of the time.This product works. I can’t believe it, honestly, I am still in delighted shock that it’s corrected so much to give me perfect new nail growth. 20+ years of ingrown toenails? Fixed.UPDATE 11/2020: I see tons of negative reviews, so I wanted to continue my own positive story. I am still using them, I haven't managed to wear them nonstop like I know I should, but it turns out the older I get the more V shaped my nails become like my grandmothers snaggletoes. However, popping these bad boys on every couple of months has made my life so much easier and pain free. I still do have good nail growth, the problem is no longer the big toes for the most part. The little toes next to them have started that old lady shape, and I just trim a strip thinner and glue it in place and BOOM. Little toe is tender for a couple days, not painful I am super careful of that, and now little toe does not give me issues with bad nail shape. I imagine to counter that hereditary problem I might be looking at lifelong usage, but when the alternative is pain or having a procedure to stop the nail growth on the sides of the nail (which looks very unsightly to me, I'd like to skip it personally if I can, because I live in a beachy place and open toed shoes are a daily thing) which I don't want. I'm still very pleased with the product and I hope that my tips and trips help anyone who uses them." — E. Simpson

I spent the rest of the day gargling and eating breath mints - didn't last long. My first try with this product and my breath was fresh from 8 am to 10 pm. I did not rinse at night but Even morning breath was better. I only use 1/2 cap for swish and a little less for gargle. The recommended amount is too much for me.

19. Description:The Exfoliating Scrub Mitt is a great way to remove all the dead skin and particles from your skin that regular soap doesn't reach. If your legs haven't seen sunlight in a while, this mitt will help them get ready for the fresh air when you wear a dress.

Promising review: "LIFE CHANGING!!! These mitts have LITERALLY changed my life. They've completely, TOTALLY changed my skin! After having used every cream, lotion, loofah and exfoliating gloves for 15+ years, I am SHOCKED at how efficacious these mitts are!!! I'm not even kidding, these things are like NOTHING you've ever used. Nothing like those rough exfoliating shower gloves you buy from Walmart. They're nothing like any loofah or shower sponge, or any rough bath towel. You might think you're exfoliating your skin but TRUST ME, you haven't been. You'll be SHOCKED and maybe even a little disgusted when you see how much skin comes off on these gloves the first time you use them.Take a long, warm shower, then, with no soap, use these mitts after you're all rinsed off. Scrub your body well in a circular motion. Then look at the mitts! They'll look like they've been sprinkled with flour! You'll never get that much skin off your body again with subsequent uses, so don't forget to look because it's incredible. And get ready to be bowled over when you dry off. Hello softness!!!The most amazing thing? If you must go awhile without showering, like if you're sick for a week or two or break your leg and are unable to fully shower, your skin will not feel rough and dry like they used to. Your skin cells won't build up like they used to, at least not nearly at the rate they used to. I can't figure out how these mitts affect that, but they do! It has to be that these mitts removed YEARS of stuck skin cells that weren't getting removed with other gloves, washcloths, exfoliating creams, and towels. How gross is that?!? My face used to feel palpably rough and bumpy and dry after a few days of not exfoliating, or only scrubbing with my shower gloves. Not anymore!If you're middle aged, you'll notice a HUGE difference; you'll start feeling soft skin that actually gets a little OILY AGAIN!!! This is a good thing - a GREAT thing - for us 40something+ women whose skin has been dried up for years. I get THRILLED to feel skin oil on my forehead again. To feel my BABY SMOOTH face and arms. My skin literally feels 25 years old again. I haven't felt it like this in almost 25 years. I am so worried about not having these mitts one day that I just bought a 2nd pair. 😃" — isaidso

20. Some Downy fabric spray will help you to wear your favorite dress that has been squished in the back of your closet since last August. Spritz this all over your clothes, pull the fabric a little bit, and the wrinkles will *poof* disappear.

Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE this product I absolutely LOVE this product. I first purchased it a few months ago when it was recommended to me by a friend at work. She has two girls under 6 and would often tell me how the wrinkle releaser was a life saver, especially in the mad rush to get her children off to school in the morning. If she pulled out a wrinkled outfit, there was no need to put it back and find another or drag out the ironing board, a few squirts of the wrinkle releaser and everyone was ready to start their day - wrinkle free. As someone who also often experiences a mad rush in the morning and hates to iron in general, I was eager to try it. I first used the product when hanging and folding laundry. Unfortunately, the laundry in my house tends to sit in the basket for a quite a while after coming out of the dryer, leaving many of my husband's nice collared shirts, and my work blouses, littered with wrinkles. In the past, I'd have to pull out my ironing board and say a prayer I didn't burn holes in any of our more delicate shirts. With the wrinkle releaser I lay out the shirt or hang it up, spray both sides, and smooth. In a few short minutes the shirt is dry and my wrinkles gone. No more lugging around the ironing board, worrying about ruining a shirt with an overzealous iron, or making myself late trying to rid my work blouse of a few wrinkles before heading out the door. It's been great for me on all material types including thick jeans, polyester, and silk. It also reduces static cling and the fragrance is very nice too - a fresh scent without being overpowering. Overall, I highly recommend it!!!" — Amazon Customer

A reviewer's dry calloused heel The same reviewer's heel looking smooth and callous-free after using the file

21. A foot file is great to use if it's been a little bit too long since you got your last pedicure. This will scrape off all the dead skin and calluses to make your feet soft and smooth again. Sandal season better watch out because here you come!

Promising review: "Severely painful cracked feet... NO MORE! I suffered from the most severely painful cracked feet for over 30 years. Like many that suffer from this condition – I've tried every dang option, medical and homeopathic do it yourself conjuring I could think of. All of which ended up not working and seemed I would be doomed to live out the rest of my life dealing severely painful cracked feet. Not to mention the wearing of socks at the beach, scratching the wife with the heals and the kids asking if I was dying due to the way my feet looked – no joke!That is until I found and tried the Colossal Foot Rasp from Rikans. Not only did it work, but it REALLY worked! I could not believe how much this foot file does its job in getting through the dry, dead and callused skin. Don't believe me, take a look at the before and after pictures I included as they will speak for themselves.Words of advice:#1. Take your time the first time through using this. It works very well and takes off a lot of skin more so than you think. Go slow and watch the dead skin fall away. Soon you will see new and healthy skin start to appear.#2. Find a great foot repair cream that specializes in re-moisturizing and combating cracked dry heals. I used O'Keeffe's Healthy Foot Cream and that is the second part to the overall success of curing my severely cracked heals.#3. Keep feet moisturized and keep applying lotion daily. Small price to pay but worth it to never have the feet I had ever again!.Hope this review finds its way to those that dealt with feet and heals like I had. You don't have to live with it as this product will do wonders if used correctly." — My Comment
