Amazon Wyze Scale ($31.99; amazon.com)
TubShroom Ultra Edition ($13.48, originally $15.99; amazon.com)
The TubShroom Ultra (which was also one of our favorite products of all of 2020) is a small but mighty gadget that helps prevent icky drain clogs. The Ultra edition’s stainless steel finish is also easier to clean than the original TubShroom.
Emart 10-Inch Selfie Ring Light ($31.99; amazon.com)
Zoom meetings aren’t disappearing anytime soon, so it’s about time to invest in a flattering ring light. Emart’s features a handy tripod mount and multiple brightness modes, making it our favorite ring light around.
Goshi Exfoliating Shower Towel ($14.99; amazon.com)
T-fal Ultimate Hard Anodized 12-Inch Nonstick Fry Pan With Lid ($50.52; amazon.com)
Not only is the T-fal our favorite nonstick pan of 2021, but it was also one of the best kitchen essentials we tested last year. Its deep sides, lid and nonstick surface make it a versatile workhorse in the kitchen, perfect for everything from frying eggs to simmering stews. The slightly smaller 10-inch version was a bestseller in January too.
Oxo Good Grips 3-in-1 Avocado Slicer ($9.99; amazon.com)
Everything you need to prep an avocado — from slicing to pitting — in one compact, dishwasher-safe tool.
O’Keeffe’s Working Hands Hand Cream ($7.99; amazon.com)
Lifewit Large Capacity Clothes Storage Bag Organizer ($19.99, originally $29.99; amazon.com)
This storage bag is perfect for stashing extra linens or off-season clothing, and we love that it features both a carry handle and clear window to see exactly what you’ve packed inside. (Be sure to check out our roundup of more home organization ideas here!)
Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Face and Body Mask ($14.95; amazon.com)
Swedish Dishcloth Cellulose Sponge Cloths ($19.95, originally $24.99; amazon.com)
Biodegradable Swedish dishcloths are a frequent Underscored favorite for a reason: They clean up messes just like paper towels but can be used multiple times and simply tossed in the dishwasher/washing machine for a refresh.
Slice Ceramic Blade Safety Cutter ($8.94; amazon.com)
With its razor-sharp, rustproof blade, this tiny safety cutter is a great tool to have on hand for opening packages and working on craft projects.
The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5%+ EGCG ($14.50; amazon.com)
This serum from affordable skin care brand The Ordinary features a mixture of caffeine and EGCG from green tea leaves, two superstar skin care ingredients that may help with the appearance of dark circles and under-eye puffiness.
Dash Rapid Egg Cooker ($19.99; amazon.com)
Cooking breakfast is easier than ever with Dash’s compact appliance, which can perfectly prepare up to six eggs at once.
Viktor Jurgen Neck Massage Pillow ($39.99; amazon.com)
We could all use some extra relaxation these days, and this pillow will surely do the job. With heated massage nodes that provide a deep shiatsu massage at the flip of a button, it’s even battery-activated so you can take it with you anywhere.
Nyx Professional Epic Ink Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner ($7.99, originally $9; amazon.com)
Simplehuman Wall Mount Grocery Bag Dispenser ($14.97; amazon.com)
Stop stuffing leftover plastic bags under the sink and put them in this wall-mounted dispenser instead. The brushed stainless steel design will look chic in your kitchen (or wherever you hang it), while the opening makes it easier to grab a single bag whenever you need it.
Whellen Selfie Ring Light (starting at $14.99; amazon.com)
Whellen’s compact ring light features three light modes and attaches directly to your phone — meaning you can take flattering selfies wherever you happen to be.
Seapoint Farms Sea Salt Dry Roasted Edamame ($12.91; amazon.com)
Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer ($41.88; $59.99; amazon.com)
The Revlon One-Step dries and styles your hair at the same time, making it fast and simple to get a voluminous blowout without a trip to the salon. No wonder we named it the best budget hair dryer of 2021.
Enlightened Bada Bean Bada Boom, 24-Pack ($19.50; amazon.com)
Another great healthy snack pick, these 100-calorie packs of crunchy broad beans are gluten-free, low in sugar and come in Sea Salt, Sweet Sriracha and Mesquite BBQ flavors.
