A portable blackout window shade so you can get a good night's sleep wherever you are without the sun waking you up at an ungodly hour. It sticks to a window using strong suction cups and even comes with a handy travel case for easy packing.

A snow cone machine because you're never too old to enjoy a childhood favorite. Make a bright-colored cup of iced goodness anytime the craving hits with this easy to use machine that comes with everything you need — flavored syrups, cups, molds, and more.

A set of two satin pillowcases with 200,000+ 5-star reviews and if that doesn't convince you, nothing will. They look super sleek and luxurious, and the silky texture promotes soft hair and skin as tons of customers can attest to.

Promising review: "I love this machine and the flavors! The flavors are fantastic! I even took this to school to make snow cones as a reward for my students. It is very easy to take and set up. The kids loved it!" —Lori

Promising review: "These are perfect! Fit my face, not overly big and not too small where it makes my face look bulky. It's the perfect 'big glasses' size. Gonna order a couple more so I always have them on hand. They also have gold ends so it glides right over my ears." —Dave/Tani

Promising review: "When I first unwrapped these, I was surprised by how sticky they felt just against the skin on my hands. Not 'tape' sticky, but ultra-grippy. I installed six of them along the sides of my runner after running a vacuum on the floor and a lint roller along the bottom of the rug itself. (I also tossed the completely useless rug pad I had underneath). When I first tested it, the rug slid. I thought for sure these wouldn't work and I would come home to a crooked or folded-up rug. Surprise!! These little babies settled right onto the hardwood floors and their grippy action is in full effect now. I have roommates, dogs, a handyman was even here today, and typically without fail the rug slides or folds up. Not today!! I’m going to be buying a half dozen more of these for bathrooms and other rugs!! Can't say how they hold up to washing, but if you’re skeptical at first, just give them a chance to settle!" —Chelsea

Price: $11.99+ (also available in an eight, 12- and 16-pack)

Promising review: "Better than blackout curtains! The white curtains are blackout but they always let the light in. We bought another set of blackout curtains but they never truly kept the room dark. The suction cups are strong and it's easily adjustable for any window. It keeps the room very dark! 10/10 would recommend and get again. Also it helps keep the room cool from hot summer days." —Morgan

SO GOOD." —sydney claire moyer

Promising review: "Nothing but awesome! Have had dogs all of my life, all have needed grooming which I have done most of the time. Always takes at least 3+ hours and always a hairy mess. This thing actually did a great job with almost no hair anywhere. What always took hours, start to finish, maybe 30–40 minutes. It really was quiet and at one point my always nervous-to-groom dog, started dozing, Lol. One of the best purchases and definitely not a gimmick!" —Carla

Promising review: "I ordered this two weeks ago after seeing rave reviews. So grateful I did. Yesterday I got the worst burn. It was unbelievable. I applied this four times over 24 hours. When I woke up this morning it was a lot better and has just gotten increasingly better throughout the day. I took the top photo at 9:30 last night, then the bottom photo 23 1/2 hours later, and the difference is huge. The burn is mostly faded, and the pain is so much better. I hope to never burn this badly again, but I will be stockpiling this lotion all the same." —Carolina G.

Promising review: "After buying yet another pack of four pads of a major brand at my local hardware store for over $6 that didn't stick well under my office desk legs, I was simply fed up. So, was very happy to find this item that offers every size and even includes material for you to cut out your own customized pads.
