This unusual accessory looks a bit futuristic, but it’s actually an ergonomic sleep mask with three-dimensional, contoured cups that won’t press down on (or even touch) your eyes — think of them as cup-shaped masks for your peepers. Blocking out the light completely promotes deeper, more restful sleep, especially when you need to catch a few winks on the go, but even when you’re in your own bed. This mask — 31 percent off — has an adjustable strap for extra comfort, and to help it fit any sized head, from a grown man’s to a child’s.
When you’re in a hurry to get out the door, there’s nothing worse than finding yourself in a frenzied search for your keys, phone, or wallet. Thanks to the geniuses who created Tile Trackers, though, you’ll never have to miss your ride or be late to appointments again just because of absentmindedness. The latest version of the Tile is marked down right now by 20 percent. This set comes with a Tile sized for a keychain, and another (called the Tile Slim), about the size of a credit card to tuck into a wallet. Just attach these slim Bluetooth devices to your most important items, then sync them up to a smartphone app. They’ll help you find your missing stuff instantly—and if you’ve lost your actual smartphone, just press a button and it will activate a ringtone to locate it.
Professional microdermabrasions cost a fortune, and right now you’re probably in no big hurry to visit a salon. Enter this curious-looking yet effective little tool, Amazon’s number one best-seller in facial microdermabrasion products. Packed with lots of tiny micro needles at estheticians’ recommended length, .25 mm, this derma roller — which is 43 percent off — is designed to banish fine lines and wrinkles, minimize pores and stimulate collagen if you use it a few times a week. Pair it with your favorite skincare products and look forward to plenty of compliments on your glowing complexion.
Walking out of the bathroom after relieving yourself and leaving behind a stop-you-in-your-tracks odor is embarrassing, to say the least. Sure, you can try to eliminate the stench with air fresheners, but they often make matters worse with their overpowering artificial fragrances. Allow us to introduce you to Poo-Pourri. This before-you-go toilet spray is blended with a combination of “safe to breathe and safe to flush” essential oils that trap odors underneath the water’s surface, according to the brand. Unlike most aerosol air fresheners, you spritz Poo-Pourri a few times directly into the toilet bowl before you get busy. Then you flush, and a fresh citrus scent fills the air.
Give bacteria-harboring washcloths and bath poufs the boot and pick up one of these silicone shower scrubbers instead — they’re 17 percent off. Not only is it more hygienic, but the cleansing brush’s textured surface lightly massages the body wash into your skin while relaxing muscles, relieving stress, improving cellulite and promoting blood circulation. It has built-in finger grips so you won’t drop it like a bar of soap either.
Fermented apple juice, otherwise known as apple cider vinegar (or ACV to its devotees), has built a cult following for its myriad health benefits, which include detoxing the body, regulating the digestive system, kickstarting weight loss, boosting energy levels and so much more. These gummies pack all that good stuff into tiny, tasty chewables that contain “the Mother.” In terms of AVC, that means the healthy, beneficial bacteria, yeast and protein present in the unrefined, fermented liquid, which is often filtered out when AVC is mass-marketed. These gummies also have vitamin B12 and gut-cleansing beet ginger root. Save 32 on a two-pack by Dakota Store — that’s 120 gummies, or a 60-day supply.
Getting kids to eat their dinner can be a Herculean effort, but this dinosaur-inspired pasta server should get them in the spirit. Oh, who are we kidding?

It’s made of nonstick and is top-rack dishwasher-safe, so honestly you may put your old pasta server and strainer into retirement after getting your hands on this little beast, which is $3 off.
What if your reusable water bottle was also your personal trainer? Well, that’s asking a lot, but this 32-ounce flip-top bottle is surely a motivational gym buddy.

You’ll be hydrated and feeling fine every day, getting your full 64 ounces in with a side of inspiration.
Let’s clear the air: aromatherapy isn’t just a fad. It’s clinically proven to reduce anxiety, alleviate aches and pains, help with menstrual and menopausal symptoms and a lot more. This wood-grain diffuser will imbue the air in your home with soothing scents of eucalyptus, lemongrass, lavender, peppermint and more of the pure essential oils included in this package. Just full the 500 ml base with water and turn the gadget on, then enjoy olfactory bliss accompanied by 14 colorful lights you can either cycle through or freeze on one hue. Save almost 20 percent.
You can vacuum as much as you want but that doesn’t mean you’re cleaning up all of your pet’s messes. Case in point: a urine stain on the carpet or couch can go unnoticed until it becomes a habit and, well, noticeable. This brilliant UV flashlight includes black light designed specifically to pinpoint where your pup peed so you can tackle the stains as soon as possible. It also helps you identify food stains that are hiding in your home decor, clothing and even your car, so you can get everything spotless. A few more quirky uses of this unique device? It can authenticate money and official documents like drivers licenses or identify unwanted bleaching chemicals in your cosmetics!
Is the cold weather so unbearable you want to be wrapped up under the covers like a burrito? Make your cozy, culinary-inspired dreams come true with this soft flannel blanket that’s designed to look exactly like a jumbo tortilla. The cozy cover — which is 40 percent off — is round, just like a tortilla, but this one’s 60 inches in diameter (that would make very hearty meal!). The double-sided burrito blanket is not only adorable and super warm, but it’s also machine-washable and comes with its own takeout container, a.k.a. gift bag.
If you prefer flat masks over cone or cup-shaped ones, you’re probably used to inhaling a mouthful of fabric, getting lipstick all over your mask (or just forgoing lipstick altogether), and having perpetually fogged up glasses. But place this flexible bracket over your mouth before putting on your mask, and all of the aforementioned woes are gone. Made from food-grade material, the brackets are washable and reusable. Amazon shoppers can’t get enough of this product, with one calling it a “game changer.”
Does your hair always clog your bathtub drain? This brilliant hair catcher is an Amazon best-seller, and it’s about to change your life (and save you money on a plumber). The genius of the TubShroom lies in its brilliant design. Due to its cylindrical “mushroom” shape, you don’t actually see any of the hair, soap or residue buildup until you’re ready to clean it. The product is made of silicone, so it’s flexible and easily fits in a variety of tub drains. Water passes through, but hair gets caught, wrapping around the tube. Now and then, just pull it out, clean it (the hair comes off easily) and put it back in place.

Suitable for all hair types and gentle enough for sensitive scalps, watch your hair transform once your shampoo, conditioner, serums and other products are able to soak in and work to their fullest extent.
