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.
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.
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? We want this pre-historic Pastasaurus all to ourselves! It’s actually a fine piece of equipment, and it even has drainage holes built-in and snaggly teeth for gripping all of that spaghetti. It's nonstick and 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.
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.
Stimulate blood flow, exfoliate your scalp, and feel more relaxed after using this lightweight, handheld massager with tons of benefits. It gets rid of excess skin and buildup on your scalp, which in turn fosters a healthy environment for optimal hair growth. Plus this thing just makes your scalp feel great. 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.
Nearly 11,000 shoppers have weighed in on this cleverly designed expandable silicone bowl, and left it with a shining 4.7-star rating.

You get perfect popcorn every time. This gadget is dishwasher safe and makes a great gift for pretty much every household on earth.
