Do you suffer from dry, brittle nails? Weak, soft flexible nails? Splitting, peeling nails that break? Then you need to give them a coat of one of our favorite as-seen-on-TV products: Pink Armor Nail Gel. This thick, protective gel coat (which also works well as a base coat or top coat) gives you stronger, longer, beautiful natural nails.
The formula includes keratin to help repair and strengthen your nails and the slight pink hue makes your nail beds look ultra-healthy. It’s the key to making your manicure last longer.
“My nails definitely feel stronger, even after just a few weeks of use,” raves our Associate Shopping Editor Andrea Carrillo in her Pink Armor review. “I just wish I had it before I broke my two thumb nails!”
Click & Carry Grocery Bag Carrier
Ever challenged yourself to bring all the grocery bags inside in one trip? Ever had your hands ache for awhile after? Click & Carry solves that issue by clipping the bags to carry over your shoulder. It doesn’t have to be just bags, either. Carry paint cans, buckets, dog leashes and sports gear.
These are also helpful for apartment dwellers, and five-star reviewer Kaylah agrees. “If your parking spot is far from your front door, this is for you!” she raves. “I bought this based on the other reviews and was not disappointed. It makes it so easy to carry tons of grocery bags upstairs to my apartment. It’s easy to use, durable and comfortable to hold. Trust me…you need these!”
With each family member needing to power up multiple electronic devices these days, electrical outlets can easily turn into a turf war. Free them up with Swivel Power by Bell +Howell, a power strip on a shortlist of infomercial products that’ll actually improve your home. This rapid charging station with surge protection offers six, three-pronged outlets and three USB ports which means you can charge nine devices simultaneously.
This Swivel Power strip also rotates 180 degrees on its base, which makes it easier to access (an ideal feature when traveling, as hotel outlets are rarely where you want them to be).
“I originally got one of these for the home office but quickly realized it would be great when traveling,” says verified purchaser Allan Keiller. “I now keep one in my backpack when I travel. I found it very helpful when a hotel room has limited outlets available.”
Is your closet overflowing with shoes that are strewn all over? Clear the clutter by doubling your closet storage space. Shoe Slotz is a space-saving storage unit that organizes and protects men’s, women’s and children’s shoes by neatly stacking them on top of each other in no-assembly-required plastic storage units. From stilettos to golf shoes, you’ll never spend time searching for your shoe’s mate again.
“These hold my shoes in neat and tidy rows,” writes Deanna Locker, who had her suspicions at first. “I was skeptical they would accommodate bigger shoes (I range from a 9-10) but they fit great. They have some flex to them so I fit some really tall wedges in them as well.” The best shoe storage awaits.
Orgreenic Frying Pan
Skip the oil, butter and grease and say hello to healthier cooking that won’t stick to your pan. The Orgreenic Frying Pan has an aluminum alloy core to ensure even heat distribution, and it’s PTFE- and PFOA-free. The ceramic interior is ideal for broiling, baking (yes, it’s oven-safe), braising, frying and steaming.
Choose from more than a dozen sized pans (or get multiple to help cut your cooking time in half) and be sure to extend their life by avoiding these 10 ways you’re shortening the life of your nonstick cookware.
“Orgreenic pans are, without competition, the absolute best pans I’ve ever purchased,” raves five-star reviewer Jenny M. “I waited 10 days to see how the pans behaved after multiple uses. They clean like a dream.”
Cup Cozy Deluxe Pillow
Attention couch potatoes: Eliminate spills and stains during movie night with this five-compartment Cup Cozy pillow. The design has four cup holders for every drink, snack and remote. The cup holders are expandable for different-sized drinks, and the soft cover is removable and washable.
Five-star reviewer Charles S. also loves it during baby feeding time. “I bought this because I need somewhere to set my phone, remote, drink and the baby bottle when I am feeding our infant,” he explains. “It’s such a simple item that makes a world of difference when I’ve got a sleeping baby (and can’t reach the side table to set things down) and need to have all the goods within reach. It’s not easy to knock over and can hold giant coffee cups! I love it!”
Battery Daddy Organizer
Ah, the junk drawer—home to hundreds of miscellaneous items from keys to coins to papers galore. The Battery Daddy tackles all those loose batteries rolling around the house by organizing them in one toolbox. It holds up to 180 batteries of all different sizes. The best feature? A built-in battery tester that lets you know if single-use or rechargeable batteries are still good for future use.
“I actually sighed in satisfaction and relief when all of our many sizes of batteries were finally corralled in the same place,” writes Devon about this 4.8-star product. “100% recommend if for nothing else than the opportunity to relax and not freak out when someone asks for 5 AAAs and 4 AAs at the same time…Good lord, I’m actually smiling right now thinking about how awesomely organized they all are.”
Let’s be real: Nobody wants to see your crusty heels hanging out of flip-flops and your spouse certainly doesn’t want them climbing into bed at night. Do us all a favor and grab a two-pack of HeelTastic, the miracle balm that repairs rough, dry skin quickly and easily. Created by a renowned chemist, her not-so-secret formulation includes imported Indian Neem and Karanja oils, which will leave your feet baby-smooth after only a few applications.
It’s majorly frustrating when keys, your phone or other essentials fall in the car space between the armrest and the seat. Digging them out is a pain and dirt gathers in every crevice. The Drop Stop is a cushioned pad that fills in the gap to stop belongings from falling in. It’s a universal fit, so it moves with your seat without having to readjust. Here are more ways to clean your car’s interior.
“After almost losing my phone, credit card and license down the black hole of between the seat and center console, I desperately ordered this product,” explains Roya H. “I chose it over the ones with organizers because I didn’t want to be greedy. I just needed it to stop. Put these in and since then I have dropped many things that would have ended in me contorting and near tears, but have emerged unscathed. It’s a good idea.”
Sometimes a standard sweatshirt just won’t do the trick to keep you warm. That’s when it’s time to call in the big guns. The Huggle Hoodie is an enormous fleece-lined hoodie that acts more like a blanket to keep you warm and cozy on the couch, while camping or even while running out for a carton of milk—hey, we won’t judge. Plus, it’s reversible, has pockets and is machine washable.
Five-star reviewer Fred Renee says the Huggle is a go-to for him and his cat. “It is so soft, warm and comfortable when cuddled up on the couch watching TV—and YES the cat immediately spots it and heads for the couch and my lap.”
