Oil Absorber


Revlon's Oil-Absorbing Volcanic Stone Roller is made of real volcanic pumice and mimics a professional facial massage while eliminating excess oil on the spot. It’s perfect for refreshing your makeup after a long day at work, touching up after an exhausting flight, or blotting and de-puffing a sleepy face in the morning. Toss those disposable blotting papers for good and toss this reusable roller in your bag instead.

Shoe Odor Eliminators

Not even your favorite pair of boots is immune to accumulating some odor, but these Stankstix by Glovestix (of Sharktank fame) are a stink-fighting solution. Two long plastic sticks fit easily into bags and shoes of any size (even knee-high boots), and their silver seal technology doesn't just mask the smell, but blocks the growth of odor-causing bacteria to eliminate it completely. Seriously, your shoes won't smell like anything at all. It comes with antimicrobial plastic that lasts up to ten years and replaceable, all-natural, moisture-absorbing and deodorizing insert bags—so your shoes will stay fresh for as long as they last.

Camouflaged Nightlights

While some night-lights are cute, others are clunky or just downright unsightly. For soft lighting with a source that's basically invisible, these Guidelights from SnapPower are perfect. Camouflaged to look like any other flush-to-the-wall outlet cover, Guidelights feature a collection of small LED lights hidden in the bottom that cast a sleek, downward glow. They're also motion activated, so ideal for midnight trips to the bathroom, movie nights, kids' rooms, and more. The best part? You can still use both outlets.
