defaultThis Stuff Works: Products we love so much it can sound like we’re being paid to dish about them—but we’re totally not!

I’ve always had trouble with the black rings under my eyes. I tried to hide them by exaggerating my eyelashes or using foundation, but nothing seemed to work. Then I was introduced to MAC Select Moisturecover. Although I was skeptical at first that a tiny tube could do wonders for my always-present dark circles, I’m definitely a convert now. It’s the must-have item in my makeup bag because it really works. It conceals dark circles and also hides spots and blemishes, and the wand makes it easy to apply and blend. I love it so much I even call this concealer my “magic stick!”

mrclean-magic-eraser-bath-scrubberDon’t you love it when products actually live up to their claims? Us too! That’s why we’ve got a brand-new weekly feature for you. Every Wednesday our editors and readers will share “This Stuff Works” picks for the must-have products they couldn’t live without. First up is Courtney.

A few months back my local grocery store was having a sale on these Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Bath Scrubbers, so thought I would try them. I tossed them into my basket, and forgot about them until last weekend. (I do clean my bathroom frequently, I just happened to hide this particular product from myself). I read the simple instructions and climbed on in to the tub to see if these things would do the trick. Oh wow—I never thought I could be this excited about cleaning my shower, but this little sponge really was magic! I just scrubbed a bit here and a bit there, and before I knew it my tub was gleaming brighter than the top of Mr. Clean’s bald head. There were no harsh chemical smells either, just a clean Febreze scent which was a total bonus. I’ve already told my friends and family about this great product (I know, you can only imagine how exciting my life is) but I wanted to share it with all of you as well. Happy Cleaning!

Now it’s your turn: Share your “This Stuff Works” favorites–the beauty, home, or other products that you can’t live without–in the comments. You could be featured next week!
