Most people would be lying if they said they don’t spend a considerable amount of time perusing Amazon’s website for products that they don’t actually need.
And yes, I’m one of them. l also had my fair share of useless purchases throughout the years. You just can’t help it. Somehow, you convince yourself that’s something you will use – eventually — and it’s not that expensive anyway. So, you go ahead, and you click on that “buy now” button. You feel a rush from it. “It’s not like is going to make a hole in your wallet anyway” — you quietly whisper to yourself. Then you take another sip of your glass of wine.
But as time goes on, you realize that something you bought was probably something you can live without, and maybe you didn’t even need it that badly. By that time, you start feeling a little bit of regret. Except now it’s too late to return it.
I love going on little online shopping sprees every now and then. But now, I’m much more careful. I actually read reviews extensively and ponder if that’s something that I want (because I’m bored) or is something that’s going to make my life easier, or better in some way.
That’s when I was able to come up with a list of these products that I absolutely think are worth the money because they’re that good.
1. Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara
I’m not the type who uses fake lashes all the time, but I do like the effect that they give. I just don’t like the work that involves putting them on. The Essence Lash Princess mascara solves that problem beautifully. It gives your lashes dramatic length and great volume and lasts up to 8 hours. It’s also gluten and cruelty-free. A great alternative to the more expensive brands and delivers the same results.
2. Bedsure Satin Pillowcases
Like many people, I was skeptical about the benefits of sleeping in silk pillowcases before. After some research of my own, I learned that cotton pillowcases actually cause friction that causes damage to your hair and your skin over time.
Obviously, silk pillowcases tend to be on the expensive side, so I was putting off the purchase for the longest time. Until I saw this brand on Amazon. After I started using them, I really saw a big difference, especially in my hair. It breaks less, and my skin looks healthier as well.
3. Qula Kombucha Drinks Tabs
Kombucha is one of those trendy healthy drinks, everyone is into right now, and I just can’t get enough of it. The only problem is unless you’re making your own, buying the ones at the grocery store means drinking a lot of sugar with it.
Since I don’t have the time or the motivation to make my own, I’ve always had my eyes peeled for a healthier alternative with less sugar. I first noticed Qula Kombucha Tabs on Kourtney Kardashian’s Poosh website. When I saw it again on Amazon, I decided it was time to give this one a try. And I’m happy I did.
The whole box comes with six Kombuchas Tabs. All you have to do is drop one in a 12 oz glass of water and wait until it melts away. It’s great for those of us who are trying to watch our sugar intake but still enjoy a Kombucha drink once in a while. The only recommendation I give, if you want to try it, is to mix the tab in sparkling water instead of still water. It will taste more like a fermented Kombucha as opposed to iced tea.
4. Simple Modern Classic Insulated Tumbler with Straw
I first learned about this Simple Modern cup from one of Tinx, (aka Christina Najjar), Tik Tok’s videos. In the videos, she was always saying how nice they were, how they kept beverages cool for a long time. And made it easier for her to remember to drink water.
The cups are truly nice and made with stainless steel. They come in various interesting colors, with a lid and two straws. They do keep drinks cooler for a long time and the slim design really makes them great travel mugs as well.
5. Elementi Electric Milk Frother
I don’t know about you, but I’m a big coffee drinker. I even invested in an espresso machine lately. The only thing I was missing was a milk frother. This Elementi Milk Frother is practical and convenient and doesn’t take up a lot of space which is great. It makes my afternoon coffee much more enjoyable.
6. Drop it Wine Drops
Although I love the occasional glass of wine, I’ve noticed I get these really bad headaches the next day when I drink it. And I know it’s because of all the sulfites and preservatives they put in it. I always try to get organic wine for home, but it’s virtually impossible when you’re out in a restaurant.
That’s when these Drop it wine drops come in handy. With just 2-3 drops it will clean your wine of all those bad chemicals that cause the headaches the next day. I like that it’s really small, so you can just put it in your purse and take it with you everywhere you go.
7. AMCO Rub-a-Way Bar Stainless Steel Odor Absorber
You can call these Stainless-steel Bar Soap if you will, except that they are not real soap. Just a stainless-steel hollow bar. But they are amazingly effective in taking away odors from your hand especially if you’re working with onions, garlic, and fish.
With thousands of five-star reviews on Amazon, the only caveat is that it seems that it works best when your hands are dry. If you’re an avid cook, this little gadget will be a nice addition to your kitchen.
I hope you enjoy these products as much as I do. Let me know on social media, if you like them 🙂
