Check it out on TikTok here! And see what Shopping Editor Heather Braga has to say:
"After hearing what incredible things The Pink Stuff can do, I finally ordered it and tried it for myself. Honestly, wow! It really does work wonders. I tried it first on my Le Creuset cast-iron pan (seen above, right) and really was amazed at how just one pass with The Pink Stuff (and a scouring brush) took off almost every stain! I can't wait to try it on literally everything in my home that needs a deep cleaning."
Promising review: "This product is absolute MAGIC! I moved into a new place and there were weird stains on the walls and nothing got them out. I decided to try the Pink Stuff out because I’ve heard so many good things about it online and they were not lying! It was so easy to use, a little goes a long way and it smells SO GOOD. Will absolutely repurchase when I run out!" —Gigi

BuzzFeed editor Kayla Boyd tried this out and raves:
"As someone who isn't a big fan of false lashes (the glue irritates my eyes and I'm terrible at applying them) this budget-friendly holy grail does the trick for both lengthening and volumizing my lashes. After you've given it a minute to dry, it lasts all day long and doesn't smudge or fade. It seriously gives the effect of false lashes without the discomfort."
Promising review: "LITERALLY MAGIC!!! I am super picky when choosing mascaras and usually opt for the expensive brands, but I tried this once and WOW was I impressed!!!!! Took a few layers to get the false lash effect but omg was I surprised! It's literally gorgeous! Does not clump and makes lashes appear longer and thicker!" —CB

Each pouch of lemon-scented formula gets you four uses. Dump a pack into your disposal (while off at first!), run the water just a bit, and then start it and watch as the blue foam gets to work eliminating odors and loosening up nasties that have been caught down there for who knows how long.
Promising review: "Ok these are magic... garbage disposal stopped smelling weird for the first time in TWO years!" —Christine Haase
Get a pack of two from Amazon for $9.23+ (available in packs of 2 and 12).
Promising review: "What is this magic?! I have fine, damaged hair (and long!). I tried this and omg my hair was SO much softer. It's been two weeks and my hair is just as soft even though I've washed it multiple times. I don't know what's in this but it's awesome!" —LaurenG

BuzzFeed Shopping contributor Bek O' Connell has this and loves it! Check out her full Elizavecca Protein Hair Treatment review for more info.
Promising review: "My washer was smelling and had grime inside the seal that wouldn’t come off even when I tried to scrub it off, so I used one of these tablets in the wash. Worked like magic and not only did it clean the washer really good (the water looked so dirty during the cycle), but it also got the smell to go away! Will keep using these as recommended." —Eca

Promising review: "I don't know what kind of sorcery this is, but it has literally changed my skin!! First time I used it, my skin felt tighter and more balanced. A week later, after using 2x a day, my skin is so much brighter. Better texture and even coloring. Pores seem tighter. Not a single pimple since. My skin looks so healthy. Whatever magic this is, it works better than any expensive designer skin lab crap that I've tried." —Np
Get it from Amazon for $19.65.
Promising review: "This stuff is like magic! It has changed my life. I am a disabled senior and had always dreaded cleaning the shower. Now it is a pleasure!

Promising review: “If you are looking for a carpet cleaner that works, stop your search because this stuff is MAGIC. When I tell you it instantly removed red wine, cat vomit, urine, and dirt stains without me even needing to scrub (although I recommend proper cleaning methods). Repeat customer here and this is the only carpet cleaner I’m going to buy everrrrrrrrr! Don’t understand the bad reviews…as with any cleaner do a patch test first!" —Yomna

Promising review: "It really is kinda magical. I need to buy more of these. It didn't last as long as I had hoped, and maybe I was using it more than I was supposed to. But in Arizona in the summer, pores get more clogged. I would find a proper black head (skin around it is raised, etc), wash my face and use this and it would be gone. No raised skin and clear pores. Magical." —ARosePerson

The Bug Bite Thing (of Shark Tank fame) works on bites from mosquitoes, bees, wasps, biting flies, no-see-ums, and more. Basically, the gadget sucks out insect venom and saliva — two things that lead to itchiness and irritation. With that out, your skin should stop swelling and return to normal in no time!
Promising review: "Saw this on Shark Tank. All the Sharks wanted in on this product so that was a hint that the inventors of this had a good product. It really works! I am a mosquito magnet but I hate using pesticides on my skin. This takes away the sting, the swollen lump and the itch like magic. I was amazed. I plan on purchasing several for my car, camper and purse because only one bite makes me itchy and uncomfortable for hours." —Bonnie Walker
Get it from Amazon for $9.95+ (available in eight colors and packs of one, two, or three).
Bed Band is a small business that manufacturers in the USA. Each pack comes with four bands which can stretch from 12 to 18 inches and hold adequate tension.
Promising review: "We have an extra-deep mattress and even our extra-deep sheets have a hard time staying in place. EVERY morning we would wake up and at least one of the corners was halfway up the mattress or had popped off entirely. It was one of my biggest pet peeves and so annoying to adjust every day. I thought this product was too good to be true. Well, one week with them on the bed and our fitted sheet has not moved one millimeter! These bed bands are magic!!! I'm buying them for every bed in the house." —Alex Cox

Promising review: "My daughter’s hair is ALWAYS tangled after a shower or bath, despite brushing it twice a day, and we decided to try this after trying a bunch of different things. This is FINALLY the magic all the other products have promised! It slid right through the tangles like they were no big deal! The scent is a bit strong, but I’ll take it for what it is able to do!" —Chris S

In case you're wondering — no, the volcanic roller doesn't mess up your makeup. And once you've given your face a quick touch-up, just twist off the top of the roller to release the stone and give it a wash before your next use.
Promising review: "This is actually magic. I am extremely oily so this is perfect. I was skeptical, but it works perfectly and is super portable." —Taylor Mankin

Here's more from BuzzFeed Shopping editor Jenae Sitzes (those are her photos above!):
"I've been using the ChomChom for quite a while now, but I took the photos above literally just now to show just how quick, easy, and effective this roller is. It took 10 seconds to rid my velvet couch ottoman (yes, velvet...a terrible cat owner choice, I know) of the hair my two gray kitties are constantly leaving everywhere."
Promising review: "It's like magic. I'd seen it on BuzzFeed but thought it couldn't actually work that great until my friend showed me how hers works. WOW. This has saved me so many sticky lint roller rolls!! My dog sheds a LOT and his fur is difficult to clean. This works great for bedding, the couch, car, etc. It's a bit difficult to use on clothing (it depends on the size of the clothing, if it's being worn, etc.) so I still need sticky rolls at times, but I'm amazed at how well this works. I had to follow the instructions in the video (roll back and forth quickly) because I was doing it wrong at first. Great product for pet owners!" —Gwendolyn
Get it from Amazon for $25.45.
Promising review: "Wow, this is magic... but be patient and commit to it. Don't try to rush the process, follow the instructions and do your best to secure the medication. You might need a second pack, but most likely, at least for me, 10 bandages sufficed for my one stubborn finger. Use until you can confidently loosen the wart (not entirely cut it out) and then just let it air dry and let the whole thing heal...A couple of weeks later, my finger looks back to normal with no signs of previous treatment or any wart. Would absolutely recommend this." —Jess
Get a pack of 14 from Amazon for $7.29.
Promising review: "I wish I would have taken a before and after picture but sadly I didn’t. My heals were cracked and bleeding and constantly had peeling hard skin coming off. This stuff was my last chance because just using a file and lotion wasn’t helping. This is literal magic in a bottle! The very first time I used it it helped more than anything else I have ever used before….the next time I used it ( a few days later) same great results. Honestly, don’t hesitate to buy this…I felt nothing while using it and it was very easy to apply and wash off." —Amazon customer

Promising review: "This stuff is MAGICAL. Not only is this easy to apply, but it's hydrating and it ACTUALLY keeps my makeup in place all day! I LOVE IT! I’ve tried other products (high and low in price) and this one wins." —Elizabeth Godina
Get it from Amazon for $9.
Promising review: "Wow! Couldn’t be happier with this product. Used today on grout in bathroom tile. I didn’t realize just how dirty my grout was. This product worked like magic. Put it on, gave it a little scrub and wiped it off. Grout looks good as new! Highly recommend!" —Amy Kearney
Get it from Amazon for $21.95.
Promising review: "My older dog started having accidents on the new couch and I had tried store-bought pet urine eliminator to no avail. I then bought one from Amazon that worked super great but the smell made me so sick every time I used it. I decided to give this one a try and voila, it smells great while doing its magic! Woke up this morning to no more urine stank!" —Amazon Customer

Sunny & Honey is a family-run small business making cleaning products safe enough to use around pets and powerful enough to get rid of pet stains.
Promising review: "Great product. I put about 6-8 oz in my carpet shampooer and added water. Shampooed an area where my dog likes to mark. It’s like it never happened. Amazing. For small areas and at-home shampoo machines, this is a bargain. Don’t call a pro and don’t waste your money on other products. This stuff is like magic." —Traci Sherwood
Get it from Sunny & Honey on Amazon for $15.99+ (available in two sizes and scents).
Promising review: "Initially skeptical when ordering this, but after using it just one time I completely understand why the name of the product is called 'Oh Yuk' because that is exactly what I said as I observed a TON of crap come streaming out of my tub jets as this stuff worked its magic! My jetted tub had never been cleaned beyond the surface since it was installed 5 years ago and after 15 minutes using Oh Yuk, the piping and jets are clean and the tub has been restored to the level of performance as when it was new!" —Amazon Customer
Get it from Amazon for $17.84.

And take it from BuzzFeed shopping writer Emma Lord:
"FWIW, re: scars, this stuff really works. I had thyroid surgery a few years ago and Bio-Oil took me from looking like I'd stumbled out of the Red Wedding to virtually no detectable scar within a few months. All I did was apply it once in the morning and once at night."
Promising review: "I absolutely would recommend this product tho anyone who had skin discoloration issues. I have some scars as well as hyper pigmentation from having a few babies and this stuff is like magic. It doesn't happen overnight, but as you use it you will begin to see a noticeable difference in the appearance of your scars. Mine nearly vanished after about a month, as did the hyper pigmentation on my upper lip. Check it out. Totally worth the price and it smells pretty good too!" —meghan
Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in two sizes).
Promising review: "My sweet furry baby pug had issues with his wrinkles and this paste solved the problem. I clean his wrinkles with wrinkle wipes, dry them off with a napkin and then apply this paste. Works like magic! I highly recommend this product." —TeamD
Get it from Amazon for $18.70+ (available in packs of one and two).
Promising review: "I am so in love with this eye cream! Seriously this stuff is amazing!!! I have used it for 5 days and already the difference is noticeable. This is nothing short of magic...like created by woodland fairies. The puffiness is gone and the discoloration is almost completely gone. I love who I am but I hate always looking like I still need sleep. This cream is worth the money and I will be putting this in automatic reorder as soon as I figure how long it will take to go through a bottle. You use so little that I’m having trouble predicting how long it will take me. Buy it and love it or don’t and miss out...it’s your call." —Cassandra
Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in three sizes).

Promising review: "The degreaser I have been looking for!! This stuff is magic in a bottle. Not making this up at all. If you have nasty build up in your kitchen, you HAVE to get this. My stove looks brand new. All you do is spray it, let it sit for a little bit, then wipe away. Best cleaning solution yet. I’m going to try their other products." —Alexis Briana Lindsey

Promising review: "The absolute BEST makeup brush/sponge cleaner on the market. Why the heck was I using Beauty Blender’s cleanser?! My brushes still looked dirty after washing. This product is absolute magic, my tools look brand new and I find that a little product goes a long way! (Saving money, too). I also appreciate that it leaves my sink super clean unlike other brands. This is the real deal!! So happy with this product and I’ll never switch." —Cherish O.

If foot graters give you the heebie-jeebies (hi, hello, it's me!), try these instead. Just slip on the booties for one hour, wash away the leftover solution (there are 16 natural extracts), and then wait patiently as it takes five to seven days before your feet shed like a freakin' iguana. At the end, you'll be left with moisturized, baby-soft tootsies!
Promising review: "I've used this foot peel a number of times and have always had great results. First, it smells wonderful and is easy to use. After a few days, you will notice your skin starting to peel right off. It's magic. A word of advice: do not use two weeks before you need to wear sandals or go barefoot — I like to do it in early spring so I'm ready for summer." —ryan owen
Get it from Amazon for $25.
Promising review: "This this is like magic. Our van was nasty and covered with hair from a German and Australian Shepherd. Looked brand-new after. Don’t think about just buy it. It will blow your mind." —Dan

Promising review: "Okay, I never write reviews but oh my goodness this little machine is magical. I have a kid and a dog and I’m constantly playing taxi with other kids and other dogs for that matter and my car showed it. After using this, my car feels literally brand new. I didn’t use the spot stain remover it came with but instead used a Tide Pod (or two lol). Each seat took a full tank of cleaner and sucked out an unreal amount of grossness lol. I can’t wait to do my couch, mattresses, AH all the things! Love this!" —Covsta
Get it from Amazon for $122.50+ (available in three configurations).
Promising review: "Little to no scent and all-natural clean ingredients. I didn't even use it consistently and it literally changed my dog's nose. It was crusted over so bad that it would scratch you when you pet her. I kick myself because I didn't take a before photo but THIS STUFF IS MAGICAL!!!" —mshustleman
Get it from Amazon for $5.95.
Humble Suds is a small cleaning brand run by two moms — Holli Schuab and Jennifer Parnell — in Evergreen, Colorado. All of their products are made from powerful, plant-based ingredients and packaged with recyclable materials.
My Shopping team colleague Danielle Healy is a fan (she took the photos above!), saying:
"I recently moved into a new apartment, so lately I've been cleaning A LOT. Shortly after moving in, my partner and I went to store something on the top of the kitchen cabinets only to find them caked in a thick layer of grime 🤢. After going at it with regular multipurpose cleaner (with little success) we broke out the scour paste as a last-ditch effort and OH BOY did this miracle product deliver (pics above)."
Promising review: "I can't say enough how magical this cleaner is! From stovetops to bathtubs, it leaves surfaces clean and shiny, just wipe after with a clean dish towel to remove any residue. The citrusy scent is absolutely lovely too!" —Beverly Matias
Get it from Humble Suds on Etsy for $15.95+ (available in two sizes).
Promising review: "I have rescue poodles. Any poodle owner can tell you about cleaning poodle ears. It's...nasty. But when you add years of neglect on top of already prone-to-funk ears it is just terrible. Infections, pain, and stressful cleanings were part of our lives until I tried this stuff. I have no idea how it works but it's MAGICAL. You squirt it in, smoosh it around, and the ick just starts wiping right off. It somehow fixes the sticky and stinky ear goop and makes cleaning ear as easy as rubbing them out with a cotton pad. I wish I'd found this years ago. If you're on the fence you should definitely try it out. Seriously, it will magically change your grooming routine. Do it!" —Jenae
Get it from Amazon for $12.99.
Promising review: "These tablets work like magic! They are the most effective ones I have found and are better than the Invisalign Cleaning Crystals in my opinion." —Peyton James

Promising review: "I was skeptical to try these after my husband suggested I get some...but they are awesome. I can clean my stove so easily with these. Where I would have to scrub with a Brillo pad...I can just wipe this magic sponge over the stove and it comes clean! I love these." —Ksb

Before you buy this though, make sure you talk to a pediatrician regarding signs and recommended treatments for cradle cap (seborrheic dermatitis).
Here's more from my colleague Heather Braga:
"My son had a few areas of cradle cap on his head that was, honestly, pretty gross. I used a gentle shampoo, a wash cloth, and this brush to remove it painlessly while he was in the bath. He didn't even squirm, he just let me repeat the process three times until all the cradle cap was gone."
Promising review: "I was skeptical that this would work well but it had great reviews so I gave it a shot. No lie! This little brush is awesome. My 4-year-old has some leftover cradle cap spots. He freaks out if you even try to scrub them even a little bit. I put some coconut oil on his scalp for 10 minutes then took a bath. I ran this comb through his wet hair, and, like magic — with no crying or freaking out — out came the dead skin on the brush. Just like that! I wish I would have found this much sooner!" —Amazon Customer

PS: It's safe on all factory installed wheels including those finished with chrome, aluminum, steel, PVD, paint, magnesium, and more.
Promising review: "I am amazed every time I use this wheel cleaner. It's like magic. I have wheels that look so cool but are such a pain to clean without Sonax. The best part about this stuff is it changes color when it's time to rinse off!" —Chad Miller
