Trending Amazon Gadgets You Need, According to Tom Schwartz & Tom Sandoval

We have tried so many pimple patches, but there is a reason we keep ordering the Mighty Patch! Thanks to the highest quality hydrocolloid, these patches absorb and draw out pus and other impurities. The patches not only reduce the size of the blemish, the Mighty Patch speeds up the healing process. But as always, don't take our advice and check out the 28,500+ 5-Star reviews on Amazon.

EZCO Bag Sealer Mini

We don't know about you, but we have wasted so many bags of chips and pretzels because they've gone stale faster than we expected. This bag sealer uses high-efficiency and low-loss heating film to create an airtight seal, so your goods will stay fresh longer, and you won't have to worry about mold. And you can store this tiny but mighty gadget on your refrigerator since it has a magnet on the back.

One reviewer said, "This product is wonderful. Our chip clips always get lost or broken, and I hate rolling a giant bag when there is just a little bit left in the bag. This not only re-seals the bag, but also cuts off the excess!"

Katchy Indoor Insect Trap - Catcher & Killer for Mosquito, Gnat, Moth, Fruit Flies

Do you get triggered when there's a bunch of fruit flies flying around your kitchen after you've cleaned over and over again and have taken every preventative measure possible? Because same. That was until we got a Katchy! This quiet and compact trap will get rid of any kind of bug problem you're experiencing. The UV light on top attracts the bug then the fan sucks it in and the sticky glue boards trap them. No zapper, harsh sounds or smells and little to no remorse depending on your relationship with bugs.

One reviewer said, "I use this on just about everything! It's safe for electronics, of course, but I am constantly using them to get into the cracks of my glasses or game controllers. With both the extremely soft touch brush and soft rubber chisel tip, you'll probably be able to get to every spot you need to get to."

Ticarve Cleaning Gel for Car Detailing

So many TikTok users have shown off the satisfying effects of this putty on car interiors and computer keyboards. If your drink consoles haven't been cleaned in a while, this is your sign to give your car some TLC. This magical gel has over 11,600 5-Star Reviews on Amazon, too!

One reviewer said, "This is so cool! My husband is all about detailing his truck and there's nothing worse than not being able to clean a spot. But now with this he can get into the vents and cup holders easier and all the little nooks and crannies! Smells good works great and easy to use."

Strawberry Huller & Slicer Set

Whether you prefer stemless berries or perfectly sliced ones, this genius set will allow you to save time while preparing delicious strawberry creations.

Addalock- The Original Portable Door Lock

Perfect for adding an extra layer of protection to your home, apartment or AirBNB. This lock installs in seconds without tools and can reinforce existing lock systems.

One reviewer said, "I am very happy with this purchase. I feel much safer when I'm home in bed sleeping and the door is jammed. I can relax. I live in an older, popular apartment in a busy city, and so I have no idea how many copies of the apartment key people have made over the years. Highly recommended for peace of mind."

Heeta Scalp Care Hair Brush with Soft Silicone

The ergonomic design of this hair brush offers an easy way to massage your scalp in and out of the shower. Plus, it will help ease itchiness, promote blood circulation and hair growth! 

One of the 50,000+ 5-Star reviewers said, "I love this thing! I've had it in my shopping cart for a while, but kept putting it off because it's not something you need, but I finally caved and bought it. It works so well! My scalp feels so clean! Plus, my nail polish always seems to chip while shampooing with just my fingers, but this eliminates that problem!"

Simple Modern Classic Insulated Tumbler

We can personally vouch that this cup will change your life and help you stay hydrated! With 6 sizes and 22 colorways to choose from, you're bound to find a version of the tumbler that speaks to your personal style. We suggest buying the straw and flip lid combo so you can enjoy both your coffee and cold drinks with ease.

One of the 29,000+ 5-Star reviewers said, "I am totally in love with my new cup. I accidentally left it in my car today, while the weather was 100 degrees outside for 3 hours, and when I came back there was still all my ice in the cup! Definitely impressed. I bought my husband one, and have one on order for my 2 kids as well."

If you're in a rush and don't have time to wait for your pot to boil, just use the Fasta Pasta Microwave Pasta Cooker! This kitchen must-have allows you to cook your pasta in the microwave in half the time without producing sticky pasta. And it offers tiny holes for measuring and draining your pasta!

One reviewer said, "I don't want to get all gushy over a pasta maker, but man...I really love this gizmo! I try to limit my monthly food expenditures and the Fasta Pasta helps me work in at least one inexpensive pasta meal every week. The pasta comes out perfectly cooked every time; and the cleanup is a snap."

CreaClip Set Hair Cutting Tool

As seen on Shark Tank, CreaClip's hair cutting tool is a game changer for at-home haircuts and trims. All you have to do is just clip, slide, and cut! Also, think twice before using the clips after you decide you want bangs after a couple glasses of wine. Just wait until the morning to give yourself a salon-quality cut at home.

One reviewer said, "My wife is amazed at how well I was able to cut her hair, with her help, using the CreaClip! We cut it shoulder length and layered using the large and small CreaClips. She says she will never go back to a beauty salon, now that we have the CreaClip. It was actually fun, & I amazed myself that it was so easy to cut her hair. I'm a former professor and have never set foot in a beauty school!"

One reviewer said, "I bought this for my first trip across the US, and I'm really pleased with this product. It charged my phone 3 times fully and still had some juice left to keep charging. It held battery life really well, I charged it a few days before my trip and it was still at full battery by the time I left."

Poo-Pourri Before-You-Go Toilet Spray Bottle

If you don't have Poo-Pourri already, you need it! Just spritz in your toilet bowl before you go #2 and allow the formula to create a protective barrier on the water's surface to trap unpleasant odors. We love gifting Poo-Pourri bottles to friends and family because it's truly something everyone can use!

One reviewer said, "This Works! My sister suffers from Crohns disease and it can cause embarrassing moments in the restroom. Especially at work where everyone uses the same one....I figured its worth a shot and Wow! It has taken a huge weight off her shoulders. If you know anyone who has IBS, Crohns, etc this will give them peace of mind. You cannot smell ANYTHING, there is a faint lovely citrus scent."

Ewedoos Eco Friendly Yoga Mat with Alignment Lines

Tired of your yoga mat slipping? Try out this one from Ewedoos that features upgraded TPE material that allows you to do the most complex yoga moves safely.

One of the 5,161 5-Star reviewers said, "I got my 200 hour yoga teacher certification in January. I have quite a few yoga mats but always worry that my alignment is off which takes me away from my focus on breath and really distracts me from the purpose of yoga. This mat is really affordable and has made my yoga practice much more fluid. It takes me out of my head and keeps me grounded in my practice!"

Say goodbye to clogged drains with TubShroom! The unique mushroom-like shape hair stopper allows for maximum water flow so you can keep on showering and collects hair  neatly inside until you're ready to clean it off.

The shaver worked great and went over zippers, seams, and even the little leather loops on it and didn't damage a thing. This is probably my favorite amazon purchase ever."
