Like most people, I do a decent amount of shopping on Amazon. Ok, I do a TON of it. So I figured I’d share with you some of the things I bought this year that I really love. How about an exfoliating face mask chock full of natural ingredients like turmeric, vitamin C, pumpkin, ginger and aloe vera? And a three-pack of luxurious loofahs to keep you company in the bath? Those are just a couple of my faves.
I also want to get a little techy on you and tell you about the surge protector power strip that changed my life. And then there’s the SodaStream sparkling water maker that brings me daily thirst-quenching joy. There are so many things I bought on Amazon that I could rave about, but here are my top 37. Why not get yourself one or two?
Amazon-Brand Epsom Salt Comes at an Amazing Price: Less Than $6 for an 8-Pound Bag
I love soaking in a hot bath with Epsom salt. So I was excited to discover this super affordable 8-pound bag of Epsom salt from Amazon brand Solimo. The bag is resealable, but I always store it in an airtight container as well, just to make sure it doesn’t get wet and clumpy. More than 25,000 Amazon buyers rate this 4.8 stars!
I Use This Instant Age Rewind Eraser on the Dark Circles Under My Eyes
This bestselling concealer works miracles for just $8. Choose from 18 different shades, plus a brightener and a neutralizer. You’ll see this Instant Age Rewind Eraser all over TikTok, and I’m a big fan too.
This Micellar Water for Sensitive Skin Is an Amazon Buyer Fave
Micellar water is an all-natural way to remove makeup and clean skin without soap or water. You can even use it safely on your eyes. This one from Bioderma is an Amazon bestseller, rating 4.7 stars on more than 20,000 purchases.
These Warm White Curtain Lights Are Twinkling Beside Me Right Now
At $17.99, these warm white curtain lights are a steal. They have five lighting modes: combination, in waves, sequential, slogs, chasing/flash, slow fade, twinkle/flash, and steady on. And they’re waterproof so that you can use them inside or outside. I’ve got mine hanging on top of the curtains in my bedroom. They’re the perfect evening mood lighting.
These NYX Eyeliner Pencils Take the Prize in Quality and Affordability
I’ve got these NYX eyeliner pencils in so many different colors. I particularly love the bold purple and deep blue. I also love the white one for highlighting. These liners go on smooth and resist smudging. And they’re so affordable, ranging between $4-$5.
I Love the Colorful Ink in This 12-Piece Set of Rollerball Pens
These rollerball pens have very fine points and bold ink that’s fun to write with. I particularly love the bright shades. You can see through the tubes, so you always know how much ink you have left. And you get the whole set of 12 for only $10 and change!
These White Cotton Gloves Are Great for Nighttime Hand Moisturizing
I bought this pack of 10 gloves (5 pairs) to wear on my hands at night and lock in the moisturizer. They’re thin and just slightly stretchy. And they’re easy to wash by just popping them in the machine.
This Three-Pack of Anti-Aging Serums Is the Perfect Beauty Kit
You get everything you need in this three-serum kit: vitamin C, retinol, and hyaluronic acid. Each bottle has one fluid ounce, and the three-pack is only $19.95. It often costs more than that for a single bottle of retinol serum from other brands. These are Amazon buyer faves, earning 4.5 stars on almost 40,000 ratings.
Keep Your Lips Soft and Sexy With This Coconut Sugar Lip Scrub
I saw this coconut sugar lip scrub on TikTok, and I had to buy it. I hate having dry, flaky lips, and this scrub makes sure they’re always soft and smooth. It’s fragrance-free and all-natural. And it’s an Amazon bestseller, for only $9.99.
This Twice-a-Day Pill Organizer Has a Cover to Block Out Moisture
I love that this pill organizer has a cover to block out moisture. I put my prescription meds in the AM slot and my vitamins in the PM slot. (Even though I take everything in the morning.) Everything stays fresh thanks to the airtight seal. And each day’s container can be removed and carried separately if you want to take it with you.
Lather-Up in the Shower With This Silicone Body Scrubber
I love this handy little silicone body scrubber! It’s gentle on the skin but works up a great soapy lather. One side has soft bristles, and the other has massaging nubs. I use it all over my body. Choose from pink, blue, or black.

When you want to carry just the essentials, this small leather crossbody bag is perfect. It’s high-quality and attractive, and it has a detachable adjustable crossbody strap, so you can wear it as a purse or carry it as a clutch. (It’s got a detachable wrist strap as well.) Choose from more than 30 colors and patterns! I’ve got these bags in teal and red. Both are lovely.
Protect Your Delicates in the Wash With This Set of Six Mesh Laundry Bags
I use these mesh laundry bags to protect my bras when I wash them. But they’re great for lots of other things, too. I use them when I travel to separate underwear, tights, and other delicate items. They’re super lightweight and breathable, so they’re perfect for that. You get three large bags and three small bags for $9.99. Or, you can choose from lots of other package options.
I Love This Boar Bristle Hairbrush for Shiny, Healthy Hair
I’ve got straight, fine hair, and this boar bristle hairbrush works great on it. It never tangles, and it leaves my hair looking smooth and shiny. It comes with a cute carrying pouch and a little tool for removing built-up hair from the brush. I use that tool regularly, and it’s so handy! For only $10, this hairbrush set is a great deal.
This Cat Scratcher in a Box Comes With Three Refills
You get six cat scratchers in one with this product! It’s got a large rectangular box perfect for a kitty to sit in. Even my big guy fits just fine. And you get three scratching boards that fit inside. Each board has two sides to scratch on, giving you six scratching surfaces total. I put one board in at a time, leaving the rest of the space for my cat to sit on because everyone knows cats love sitting in a box.
This Phone Tripod Is the Selfie-Taker’s Best Friend
I got sick of taking selfies that were only an arms-length away, so I bought one of these tripods. It holds the phone wherever you want by gripping it onto a surface with its bendable legs. Then, you use the included remote to snap pics to your heart’s content. If you have a digital camera, it works with those, too.
This Lightweight Cotton Robe Is Beautiful and Comfy at Once
This lightweight cotton robe comes in so many colors. I had trouble picking which one to get, but I went with the purple-red in the end. It’s super soft and comfy, and it’s short (but not too short) for warm weather. It comes in six sizes, from XS to XXL, and it’s machine-washable.
This Is the Best Surge Protector Power Strip I’ve Ever Bought
Not to get all nerdy on you, but this surge protector power strip is amazing! It’s so smartly designed, with three-prong outlets widely spaced and facing in three different directions. This makes it super easy to fit all your plugs in comfortably. And it’s got three smart USB ports for charging your phone, tablet, and other devices. Buyers rate this baby 4.8 stars!
This Exfoliating Face Mask Has Turmeric & Vitamin C
Given that it’s chock full of turmeric and vitamin C, I guess it’s no surprise that this face scrub is bright orange. It’s also got pumpkin, ginger, glycolic acid, and aloe vera in it. I love that it’s made with natural ingredients, and I love how fresh and clean it makes my face feel!
This Set of Four Spiral Hair Ties Is Super Comfy and Easy to Use
I was always afraid of using these spiral hair ties because they looked like they were just begging to tangle your hair in knots. Not so, though. This four-pack of spiral hair ties has subtle colors that blend well with brown-toned hair. They never tangle or snag my hair, and they hold it in place perfectly. Get four for only $5.99.
Keep Your Eyeglasses Crystal Clear With This Lens Cleaning Spray Kit
This is my second time buying this lens cleaning spray kit. It’s the best!

I use the spray and cloth daily on my glasses as well as on my phone and iPad. It cleans easily and leaves no residue.
This Heat-Resistant Glove Protects Me From Burns When I Curl My Hair
I’ve burned my hands more than once while curling my hair, so I finally bought this heat-resistant glove to protect myself when I’m using my curling iron or flat iron. It works great! You can put it on your right or left hand, and it’s not bulky and awkward like you might expect. It doesn’t make it hard to style your hair, but it does keep you from injuring yourself!
This Clip-On Light Is Great for Reading in Bed or Working at the Desk
I’ve got this gooseneck light hanging above my bed. It’s perfect for reading at night. It’s got three color temperatures and adjustable brightness. And the 15.74-inch flexible arm lets you direct the light wherever you need it. Choose from white, silver, or black.
You’ve Gotta Get This Fluffy Cat Bed for Your Furry Friend
I bought this fluffy cat bed when it was on sale for Prime Day, though it’s still a good deal at its full price of $20. When it was delivered, I fluffed it up and set it on the floor while I went about my day. The next thing I knew, it had a cat in it. He found it sitting there and decided it needed some breaking-in. He’s been sleeping in it nightly ever since.
I Have This Cool Silicone iPhone Case in a Couple Different Colors
I’m a big fan of silicone phone cases because they protect the phone well and feel great in my hand. This one is only $13.99 and comes in 14 different colors. I have it in pale purple and bright red. I think I’ll get the plum one next!
These Microfiber Cleaning Cloths Are a Lifesaver Around the House
I use these microfiber cleaning cloths for everything! They’re great for scrubbing the bathroom and kitchen. They’re also great for washing windows and mirrors. I use them dry to dust surfaces and wet to wash dishes. Just toss them in the wash, and they’re ready to use again.
This Silk Sleep Mask Is Soft and Gentle on the Skin
I love the look and feel of this black-and-white striped sleep mask. It’s made of 100% mulberry silk, which is lightweight and gentle on the skin. The mask offers lots of coverage, so it blocks out all the light. And you can get it in seven other colors — for only $10.
I Love This Organic Argan Oil for My Skin, Hair and Nails
This organic argan oil from Morocco is chock full of antioxidants, omega 3, and vitamin E. I use a small amount on my hair, skin, and nails to moisturize and infuse with nutrients. A little bit goes a long way! I bought the 3.4-ounce bottle, and I’ve barely made a dent in it after three months of use.
NYX Matte Lip Cream Is Beautiful and Only $5
I have this NYX matte lip cream in a couple of different colors: Budapest and Prague. Both are deliciously smooth and lovely. They’re highly pigmented, and though they’re matte, they won’t dry out your lips. This lip color is better than many premium brands, and it’s only $5!
This Bikini Trimmer Has Been My Favorite for Years!
I used this little bikini trimmer for years, and when it finally died on me, I hit Amazon right away for a new one. Though I tried other brands and models, this one is still my favorite. And it’s only $17.99! You can use it in or out of the shower. It’s got an adjustable trim head to get just the right length. And it’s cordless, so it’s super easy to use.
This Set of Three Large Loofahs Is Luxurious and Affordable
When these three loofahs arrived, I was really impressed. They came in a handsome bag, and there was a bonus mini scrubber thrown in for free. There was also a card explaining more about the loofahs, which are 100% natural and eco-friendly. I’m loving these things!
I Fight the Signs of Aging With This Retinol Moisturizer With Hyaluronic Acid
Anti-aging moisturizers are pricey, so I was glad to find this Tree of Life moisturizer with retinol and hyaluronic acid for only $13.95. It works great and has natural ingredients you can feel good about putting on your skin. Buyers rate it 4.5 stars.
This Extra-Large Heating Pad Soothes My Aches on a Daily Basis
I’m an achy gal, and this heating pad is my best friend. It’s extra-large, so I can wrap it around my back and sides or lay it vertically to heat from my neck to my waist all at once. It’s got six temperature settings and an automatic shut-off. And you can use it for moist or dry heat.
This 8-Pack of Extra-Thick Cutting Boards Makes Meal Prep a Snap
My meal prep always involves a lot of vegetable chopping, so good cutting boards are essential. This eight-pack of extra-thick cutting boards was a real find. You get four large and four small boards that are lightweight but sturdy and dishwasher safe. And they each have anti-slip textured backs.
This Faux-Leather Backpack Purse Is the Perfect Everyday Bag
I’m a fan of backpack purses because they leave my hands free. This one is super cute, and it’s got all kinds of pockets for storing your stuff. It comes with a removable shoulder strap so that you can use the bag in three ways: tote, shoulder, and backpack. Choose from 15 colors.
I Always Have Sparkling Water At-The-Ready Thanks to SodaStream
I drink a lot of sparkling water. Like, a lot. So it just made sense for me to get a SodaStream machine instead of buying all those single-use bottles. Now, I save money and reduce waste. I love that you can add flavor to the soda water if you want, too.
This Beautiful Silk Pillowcase Is Gentle on the Skin and Has a Hidden Zipper
You don’t have to worry that this silk pillowcase will slide off your pillow because it stays snugly in place with a hidden zipper. I chose the eggplant purple color to go with my comforter, but there are more than 30 colors to choose from. These cases come in six different pillow sizes, and they’re rated 4.6 stars.
