"After just one month of using this product, however, my ordinary lashes were suddenly so long that they nearly touched my eyebrow when my eyes were wide open," reported former editor Brianna Lapolla in her PureWow review, adding that after using it once a day for a month, strangers regularly asked her if her eyelashes were real. Just a flick on the lash line before bed, and lashes grow longer and thicker than before, without the risk of irritation or eye color change as has been reported with prescription products.

This classic oral health tool has seven tips for multiple family members and needs, and ten massage settings with a 360-degree rotating tip.

Pro tip: You can also use it to clean your laptop keyboard.

Not only do we love this four-ounce fan for runners due to its lightweight, slim design—it easily slip in and out of your legging pockets when you need a quick break—but also because it includes a flashlight (great for nighttime jogs).

Swap those ugly, orange traffic cone earplugs for a pair of chic ones (available in black, amber, cerise, gold, rose gold, silver and violet).
