Promising review: "One of my best claws for my long curly hair. I own six of them in different colors. It's great that it lies flat so I don't bump so much into things, like other claws do: car seat, pillow when sleeping, my partner's arm while dancing. They give a very stable and lasting impression. The colors, as well as the shape, are gorgeous. Will probably come back for even more colors." —Free People Customer
Get it from Free People for $28 (available in two colors).
Promising review: "I first saw this book on TikTok and decided to look more into it. I purchased four total because I know some people holding onto things that are difficult to let go of. It’s a great way to look at things from a different perspective and truly hold yourself accountable to different things in your life. I love what it stands for and I look forward to when I burn mine after I’m done. Self love, self care, and meditation for a better state of mind tomorrow is always the goal. I definitely recommend it to those susceptible to change and the willingness to try different things. You’re so much more than what’s been done to you and someone’s inability to see your worth does not decrease your value. Choose you for a change." —Brent Helm
Get it from Amazon for $7.32.
CaiCai Handmade is a small business based in Katy, Texas.
Promising review: "So adorable, great size! Fragrance is beautiful and very strong. I really like how strong the fragrance is, personally, because I can enjoy the candle without burning and ruining it if I decide to keep it for decor. Really great candle! Excellent quality!" —Jennifer Hoffmann

Check out this viral Lego flower bouquet in this TikTok from @shaelorend. The bouquet includes 15 stems with a mix of flower and leaf varieties, including roses, snapdragons, and poppies, and it uses elements made from plant-based plastic.
Promising review: "The bouquet looked absolutely stunning. The attention to detail was impressive, and the colors of the flowers were vibrant and eye-catching. The bouquet is not only aesthetically pleasing but also a lot of fun to put together. My son was able to complete it within an hour, which was fantastic. The instructions were clear and easy to follow, which made the entire experience enjoyable for him." —1teaspoon

Promising review: "I saw this on TikTok and wanted to get them. The rings are resizable and can even fit together on the same hand. I love them so much." —basma
Get it from Amazon for $12.31+ (available in 26 letters and 11 colors and styles).
Promising review: "The picture doesn't do justice to the iridescent paint. I ordered the pink lamp, and it glimmers with hues of purple and green. Very pretty and mermaid-esque. I was worried about the size because of other reviews, but the size is perfect and matches the product description. Any bigger would be too gaudy for a dresser or nightstand, in my opinion. It gives off as much light as your standard hallway nightlight, so maybe too dim for kids who are scared of the dark, but perfect for teens or adults who can't fall asleep with bright lights left on. I love that it's cordless so I can place it anywhere for decoration, though I haven't tested the battery longevity yet. My lamp arrived packaged in styrofoam and had zero damage. I'm very pleased. It reminds me of Urban Outfitters' aesthetic and is perfect for a modern cabana decor theme." —Natalia C.
Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in pink or white).
Watch a TikTok of the foaming mask bubble!
Promising review: "I love this stuff! I received some for a gift and then purchased it for my daughter from Amazon. It feels like a clay mask going on, and then starts bubbling and turns to a thinner substance when it's done. I feel like it is very gentle on my face. My skin feels amazing after I wash it off. It feels like I used moisturizer, even though I did not." —L. Shea
Get it from Amazon for $8.98.
BuzzFeed Shopping editor Emma Lord says: "Our family recently unearthed this because beloved To All The Boys I've Loved Before author Jenny Han mentioned that it was her secret to delicious popcorn, and it may have just wrecked me for other at-home popcorn for the rest of my life. It genuinely tastes just as salty and buttery and savory as fresh movie theater popcorn. I inhaled it so fast that every single one of my organs lit up in mild alarm."
Promising review: "I am a person who will make myself sick eating buckets of popcorn (I have no self control). This has by far been my favorite 'TikTok made me buy' item. My at-home popcorn is now my favorite thing to make and I don't need to go the theater for popcorn. Very much worth the purchase and this will last me such a long time." —S Martinez
Get it from Amazon for $9.60.
Promising review: "The only thing I can say about this piece other than how soft and comfy it is: woooowza. The sizing is also really accurate, and I know how hard that is to find in plus sizes. I would absolutely recommend this piece, and I might be getting it in all the colors. 🥰" —Kayla L

Every day my whole living room becomes a party :) Cannot recommend enough." —Phil

Promising review: "Cutest little light I didn’t know I needed! Timer function is perfect for use as a night-light or as an indicator that it’s time for bed. Brightness is perfect, especially since you can choose to keep front, back, or both lights on. Battery life is fantastic, I’ve only charged it once since getting it and it has been used every night. Would definitely recommend." —Tiff164

Play the relaxing pre-recorded sounds that come with the device, *or* pair up your phone's playlists with its built-in Bluetooth!
Promising review: "I love this device. I bought it to help feel relief when I have a headache. Although it doesn’t make my headaches go away, it does help feel some relief. It’s so relaxing. I use it before bed even if I dont have a headache. The music that it comes with is relaxing, like the music you hear while getting a massage. But it’s Bluetooth so you can play your own music. Love that it has different setting as far as pressure, massage modes and heat. Love this product." —Cameron Colebrook
Get it from Amazon for $69.99 (available in three colors).
This requires an AA battery.
Promising review: "This is an awesome clock for anyone who loves Dali and surrealist art. It is a great value for the money considering it is super cool and seems to be good quality. The whole clock is encased in a distorted plastic bubble which is very cool. The metallic part is also plastic which is fine. It ticks a bit loudly, but I personally like that, I'm just glad such a cool clock is also fully functional." —Zach
Get it from Amazon for $12.

Get a 10-piece bundle from Amazon for $15.99.
Promising review: "I love this product so much, I was actually a little surprised at how amazing the quality was when it arrived! The fingers are slightly different sizes so you can store different sizes of rings, and they're spaced perfectly so I could fit all of my bulkier rings as well. The product is a hard plastic type of a material, and doesn't feel like it could break easily. It's also nice and sturdy so you don't have to worry about your rings flying everywhere if you accidentally bump it. Definitely gonna buy more soon to fit my other rings. 💕 I highly recommend purchasing!!" —Kitty

My BuzzFeed Shopping colleague Mal Mower owns this and raves: "Obviously this precious ball pit is intended for actual HUMAN children, but my millennial pet parent heart couldn't help but get this for my house! I hide my cats' favorite treats in the bottom and they will dig around for ages trying to find them all. It's not designed to withstand pet nails, but it's held up really well. I can't rave about it enough!"
