Keeping up with body-hair growth can be difficult — unless you have this handy little gadget, of course. Instead of spending hundreds or thousands on razors, shaving products, waxing, bleaching and so on, try the XSoul Hair Removal Device. This treatment uses advanced IPL (intense pulsed light) technology to break the cycle of hair regrowth for permanent hair reduction, delivering flawlessly smooth skin.

“I got this for using on my underarms, and it really works. After one week I was noticing slower and thinner growth, and now it’s so slow and thin I forget to keep using it,” said one beauty maven. “For someone who just gave up on sleeveless tops” because of “such bad irritation from shaving, this is totally worth it.”

They’re waterproof and sweat-resistant, too, so don’t sweat it if you get caught in the rain or wear them during a particularly intense gym session. And the price can’t be beat — at $30 off, you’re getting an earful for a song.

Your life may be trashed, but that doesn’t mean you can’t put up a tidy front in your car’s interior. (Photo: Amazon)

Whether you have kids, pets or a particularly messy spouse, the best way to keep your car from accumulating trash is to have a place to put it (that isn’t your back seat). This waterproof bin clips on to your back seat or the back of the passenger or driver’s seat headrest, and it’s the perfect size for water bottles, discarded coffee cups and, of course, various and sundry receipts that seem to mysteriously multiply every day.

“The best trash can for the car I have come across!” raved one happy driver. “If you’re thinking about buying this, do it; I got the black color, and it goes unnoticed in my car.”

car dashboard mount

Gear up for all the summer road trips to come. (Photo: Amazon)

It’s important to keep your eyes on the road (of course), but that can be hard to do if you’re following your phone’s GPS. Luckily, this car phone mount is the perfect solution! It will easily hold your cell in view for quick reference without your having to look down, and it can be secure with phones of all sizes, thanks to adjustable feet and strong, wide clips. Mounting is also a snap — it uses a powerful three-layer viscous gel and a one-step locking mechanism to provide strong suction on a smooth surface without leaving any residue.

“After struggling without a phone mount for years, we finally sprung for one. After seeing many kinds that took up space in your cup holder or mounted on vents, we didn’t want that. Our dashboard is curved, so a flat mount would not work either. Alas, we found this one and it’s perfect,” raved one five-star fan. “Easy to mount, easy to slide the phone into. With over 2,000 miles using it, we give it five stars!!”

Just so there’s no misunderstanding: We recommend buying a case that covers the entire pillow. (Photo: Amazon)

If you run hot during your slumber, the Pharmedoc Cooling Memory Foam Pillow is packed with features to help keep you chilled and comfy while you snooze. It’s crafted from memory foam, which helps provide impressive support that cradle your head and neck in bed, and it has ventilation holes to allow air to pass through, cooling off your pillow, and your noggin, in the process. It’s even infused with a special cooling gel to help keep it — and you — from overheating during the night. And because it’s created from a block of memory foam, the Pharmedoc Cooling Memory Foam Pillow won’t easily lose its shape like so many forgetful pillows out there.

More than 2,300 Amazon shoppers have given the Pharmedoc a perfect review. One satisfied snoozer called this the “best pillow.” Tell us more! “I have had a terrible time finding the right pillow. They are either too hard or they squish down by morning, and either way I wake up with neck, back and jaw pain. This pillow is great. I love it!”
