One of my favorite ways to find amazing new things on Amazon is through recommendations. There are literally millions of items available on the shopping behemoth website, which means it's not really a place for casual browsing. But sometimes you just want to find something new, stumble across a great find, surprise yourself. This is why I love having someone give me a suggestion so that I can scamper off down a new and bizarre Amazon rabbit hole.
Even if you don't have buddies who are well-versed in the ways of Amazon, you do have 22 Words, which is even better. We've compiled a list of 37 absolutely amazing products that will have you feeling like you've discovered a particular secret. Now it's just up to you to pick your favorites and go exploring on Amazon. There's certainly something here for everyone, so don't worry about whether or not we have you covered.
We hope you find these products as awesome as we do. Just an FYI: We are a participant in the Amazon affiliate program, and Brainjolt may receive a share of sales from links on this page. Prices on Amazon fluctuate so anything mentioned below might change as soon we publish it!
A Different Kind Of Hot Pocketvia Amazon
Before I bought this $5 find, I had a heat-resistant mat and a travel pouch for hot hair devices. Now I have one product that does both in this iron mat and pouch combo. Protect your bathroom counters from damage from heat tools and then throw your straightener in your bag (stashed inside this pouch). It's basically "have hot hair tools, will travel." Choose from gray or mint green to match your personal style.

A Brush That Distributes Scalp Oil From Root To Tipvia Amazon
Scalp oil tends to accumulate at your roots unless you're using a boar bristle brush — like this one.

With heavy-duty blades that power through paint, stickers, decals and stubborn bits of crud, these scrapers are must-haves — even if you don't plan on using them just yet.

You might think you're not going to need to scrape something nasty off a surface, but trust me: at some point in your life you will and you will be grateful for these scrapers.

Sure, cotton balls will get the job done, but cotton swabs might be better. And! And! Do you know what's even better than cotton swabs? A pack of liquid-filled oil-free swabs to carefully target areas where you want to remove makeup!

Be the Most Organized Traveller... Evervia Amazon
One of the most important things about a beauty routine is consistency: which means even when you're headed out of town. Whenever I'm packing for vacation, my luggage is always a disaster; I've got shampoo in one pocket, conditioner buried under my clothes, and my toothbrush is usually buried so deep I have to buy another one at my destination. This bag is my new go-to to have everything organized and where it needs to be so I can keep up with my good habits. Because who doesn't want to look good while they're on vacation?

Plus it works like any primer to help keep your product firmly in place, even if you're sweating.

You can't trim your brows using a regular razor unless you want to accidentally shave them off. No? Then grab these precision ones.

I'm all about precision when it comes to blades near my face.
These Colorful Claw Clips are Perfect for Summervia Amazon
I am so happy that claw clips are back in style. I have never loved my hair in a ponytail or bun, so this is such an easy way to look put together when I just don't feel like getting ready. These colorful claw clips are circulating all over Instagram and TikTok because they are colorful (and heavy-duty), making them the perfect summer accessory.
Try This For Teethingvia Amazon
Teething babies are the worst. They're just so helpless and pitiful. Mimi the mushroom is a great teething device, in part, because it mimics the shape of the breast which is familiar to the baby. Small and lightweight, it's easy for the baby to hold and chew on — front to back — without risk of choking or gagging. One reviewer said, "We are now on month seven and, holy cow, is this still the best teether. My daughter won't take a paci but she uses this as one as well as a teether. This is just amazing."
This Alarm Clock Has a 2-Inch Display and USB Portvia Amazon
I was using my phone as an alarm clock, but I missed the convenience of being able to see the time at a glance without squinting or fumbling for reading glasses. This Alarm Clock is a nice-looking, no-frills clock that does its job perfectly. The display has 2-inch tall numbers so I can see it easily, and it includes a USB port for handy charging. So when I desperately want to stay in bed I can just glance up and convince myself that I do have five more minutes.

These Waterproof Bandages Come in a Variety of Cool Prints for Kidsvia Amazon
My kids seem to get scrapes and cuts on the areas that get frequent washing, like their hands, so it's near impossible to keep bandages on. Until I found these "bravery badges"!

These Outlet Covers are a Safety Mustvia Amazon
Babies are curious little creatures and have no sense of self-preservation, so these outlet covers are a must-have safety item!

This $8 Tablet Is a Fun, Techy Way to Doodle or Take Notesvia Amazon

This Shampoo Rinsing Cup Makes Bathtime Bettervia Amazon
In general, kids love bathtime - except for the shampoo rinsing part. This hair rinsing cup was key in helping my kids enjoy all aspects of bathtime since it prevented water from getting in their faces, which they hated for some reason. And at 6, my youngest is still using it to rinse her own hair in the bath!

You might think this neck fan looks silly, but don't worry — thousands of reviewers are pumped about how it genuinely helps them cool down. "I have hot flashes, and this fan allows me to do my job and not break out in a full-on sweat," wrote one enthusiastic shopper. "I never leave it at home now, or I am hot as heck without it!

Plus, it gives you the chance to change the color anytime you want.

(Hey, I'm not judging.) This smart scale won't break the bank but is packed with features like body fat monitor, BMI, muscle mass, body water, and more.
A Brilliant Power Strip Solution
In recent years, the people who design chargers have apparently decided that every charger must be the size of my fist and take up at least two spots on my power strip. Outlet space has been in high demand around my house for a while now. But no more! This power strip rotates so that you can plug in bulky chargers without running them into each other. It's truly brilliant.
