Like most people in this day and age, I have a rather extensive online shopping habit. There's nothing quite so cheering as placing an order, anticipating the delivery, then receiving what is essentially a gift in the mail - albeit, one you have purchased yourself. Life is hard, so finding things to spark joy is essential, after all. But sometimes, you get the urge for that online shopping dopamine hit without knowing exactly what to add to your cart.
Luckily for you, an online shopping connoisseur (me) is here to help. I've selected thirty-seven products that I have on my personal wishlist - and if you're anything like me, they'll soon be added to yours too. They're all highly rated with tons of reviews, so I feel confident I won't be disappointed when these products do make it into my life. From beauty products to homeware, to gadgets, to snacks, here is my edit of thirty-seven products I don't own - but am dying to try.
The Marshmallow Whip Makes Cleansing Fun
Simply add a small amount of your foaming cleanser of choice to this clever device, top up with water, and it'll create a dreamy, foamy substance that'll wash your face with ease.
The reviews say: "SO AMAZING! So surprised this isn't a "must-have" tool. It only requires a dime-sized drop of face-wash for a full container of foam. The foam feels very luxurious, and by the end of the wash, your skin will feel very soft and taken care of. I will say, this will only work with certain face washes. I originally use Burts Bees Chamomile and Bark Deep Cleaning face wash, which is very creamy. However, when I put the face wash in the whip maker, it didn't foam. Luckily, I also have Cosrx Low pH Morning Face Gel, and that foamed up just fine."
The Cat Dancer Does What it Says on the Tin
Making your cat dance is one of life's biggest joys - and this little toy makes it easier than ever.
The reviews say: "I have a whole room filled with cat toys that my cat is not interested in. It's funny how the least expensive cat toy I have makes him go crazy. He plays with this until he's panting like a dog and I have never seen him jump so high. I'm certain this toy will help him lose his belly. He loves it! I highly recommend it!"
Speaking of Cats, These Treats Will Boost Their Breath
Let's face it - halitosis is a common cat plight. But these clever treats help clean teeth and freshen breath, all while tasting of delicious tuna.
The reviews say: "I know many people give their pets too many treats. Which is not necessarily good. But if you are going to, at least get them treats like Greenies that help their teeth. They can be a little expensive compared to most treats, but if you see a sale, jump on it."
Kimchi Mayo Gives any Food Flavor
I'm a condiment obsessive, and this Kimchi Mayo has me feeling super intrigued - and excited.
The reviews say: "This is literally the tastiest sauce known to mankind. When I die, I hope to drown in a pool of this sauce so that my last moments are tasty. But seriously, I love this sauce so much and I highly recommend purchasing it."
This Aftersun Boosts Skin and Smells Great
Whether you're sunburned or not, this thick and luxurious cream soothes skin and gives a healthy glow. The tropical scent will help you cling on to the last bit of summer, too.
The reviews say: "So this lotion reacts almost like a skin highlighter on my face. It feels so nice, brightens up my skin, and moisturizes it like nothing else. Honestly, I don't even have a sunburn and I use it often. It smells great, and helps the skin stay soft."
A Sunset Lamp for the Upcoming Winter
As we prepare for the sun to go away for a few months, we can mimic the golden hours of summer at home with this cool projector lamp.
The reviews say: "Is it now officially one of my favorite purchases? Yes. If you are reading the reviews because you are trying to decide if you should buy this, just hit the buy button. I'm telling you- when you get home from a long day, turn off your overhead lights, turn this sunset light on... it is a vibe. It makes your whole room feel so relaxing and comfy. 100/10."
A Milk Frother Makes Dalgona Easy
You can create fun whipped coffees at home with this milk frother. What's even better is that it's super compact and easy to store away when not in use.
The reviews say: "Ok. Where do I begin? This frother is a MUST if you are a coffee, iced coffee, or tea lover. I am all of the above, so I needed a frother in my life. I searched high & low on Amazon for a while and decided on this one. I am so glad I did! It makes all the difference in my coffee."
This Toner Transforms the Skin
This toner combines AHA, BHA, and PHA (skin-exfoliating acids) with soothing niacinamide to help unclog pores, smooth texture, and brighten the complexion.
The reviews say: "I actually remember when this brand was just starting out about a year ago, I had received a little sample with another order and was so impressed, and who can't love the price?! All three acids do an amazing job and this toner is not harsh/too strong like some AHA toners. This one leaves me glowy without being greasy, you'll notice after only several days your skin just looks...HEALTHIER."
These Sliders Look Way More Expensive Than They Are
Having sliders around is always handy for running errands or nipping outside. These ones are elevated with a futuristic design and slight platform.
The reviews say: "Pleasantly surprised! I ordered these for quick shoes for my pilates class. The fit is good I am 9 so 8-9 worked well. The neutral tan is a nice color. Might be the best Lake shoes ever! Happy buyer!"
A Silk Pillowcase for Living Like a Princess
Using a silk pillowcase has multiple benefits for your skin and hair. But above all else, it just feels fancy - and that's what I'm always striving for!
The reviews say: "I was looking for real silk pillowcases to help my hair, skin, and especially my eyelash extensions. I sleep on my side and with cotton pillowcases, I noticed the outer corners of my lashes were shedding faster on the side I favored. Since buying these pillowcases I've had fewer lashes shed on the outer corners, no breakouts or super oily skin in the mornings, and zero frizz to my curls. Highly recommend!"
These Utensils Satisfying Stack
You can replace your cluttered utensil holder with this sleek set. It has everything you need and comes in multiple colors, too.
The reviews say: "We travel full time and move every 3 months so everything has to be compact and packable. These replaced 5 other kitchen utensils that did not nest in each other. They sit on the counter ready to use. They are sturdy and have been used in non-stick ceramic and cast iron pans. Very happy with this set."
These Sunglasses are Classic yet Cool
The shape of these shades is basically universally flattering. You also can't beat the price and the extensive color range.
The reviews say: "I love the style, this is so trendy right now. Great value for your money, I got the set of two one black and one tortoiseshell. I love them and they look so chic."
This Handsoap is Unbelievably Cute
This clever bottle dispenses your handsoap as a beautiful foamy flower. Washing your hands has never felt so adorable!
The reviews say: "This product isn't just cute!!! It smells amazing. It's not too pungent. But just enough to make your hands clean and smell beautiful! This product has helped me wash my hands more!!! Same with my nieces and nephews. It's so fun to use. I don't think it will ever get old! I bought four refills with it. Guys this product is an absolute must! It's safe on my sensitive skin. I have chronic dermatitis and this hasn't caused my hands to dry out horribly or itch! The feeling of the foam is fantastic! And my hands feel so clean! I can't stop using it already!"
This Gloss is Shiny but Not Sticky
I love a '00s lip gloss, and this one from NYX is one of the best. The only problem is choosing which of the many gorgeous shades to buy!
The reviews say: "This is one of those drug store products that lives up to its reputation. It's not sticky, like so many inexpensive lip glosses. It will also keep your lips reasonably hydrated. This gloss is all you need for everyday wear."
These Butterfly Clips are as Useful as they are Sweet
Take a nostalgia trip back to the '90s all while keeping pesky strands of hair out of your face with these clips. The set comes in twelve cute colors!
The reviews say: "Absolutely love these!! Very sturdy! My daughter gets compliments on them all the time!"
A Set of Measuring Cups Speeds Up Baking
With this stackable set, you can measure basically any ingredient under the sun. They look sleek and come in different colors, too.
The reviews say: "I love kitchen aid products. I've bought them for years and I hold them to a high standard. These did NOT disappoint. They wash well, hold up well, and are easy to read."
These Leggings Give an Instant Butt Lift
The seams on these leggings give the illusion of a higher and rounder butt - and, let's be honest, who doesn't want that?
The reviews say: "Will be buying in more colors! Fit perfectly, squat proof, and overall a great find on Amazon! The waistband elastic needs to be adjusted sometimes but not a huge deal. Butt scrunch is very cute!"
This Mushroom Kit is a Fun Project
Not only is it super satisfying to plant things and watch them come to life, but at the end of the journey, you get some delicious mushrooms, too.
The reviews say: "This product has been so much fun to watch! I followed the directions, exactly as written, and the mushrooms began growing within 3-4 days. I will say that I did soak them for close to 10 hours before putting them back in the box to grow and I believe this helped a ton. I also kept the box inside by a window with the blinds closed in order for them to get indirect sunlight. The mushrooms grew tremendously for almost a week before they started to shrink so I clipped them to cook with and they were DELICIOUS! This was such a fun product and process to watch. I am now in the process of trying to get a second batch of shrooms from the same box— fingers crossed!"
This Tumbler is Perfect for Drinks on the Move
You can make your drink at home and take it anywhere in this handy tumbler. It fastens securely so there are no spillages, and it comes in an array of designs!
The reviews say: "I was really surprised that this mug worked so well! I make iced Redbull infusions in the morning and it keeps ice in it over 8 hours. Hasn't leaked in my experience so I'd call that a win."
This Handheld Vacuum is Perfect for Small Spills
If you need to clean up a smaller area but don't want the hassle of getting out your entire vacuum cleaner, this is a perfect solution - particularly if you have a pet.
The reviews say: "Awesome power. At first, I did not like the fact that it could not be hung up on the wall with the charger plugging into it like my previous dustbusters. I didn't have extra tabletop space to store it flat. But once I found a spot for it, it is nice to just rest it on its base and not deal with wires and decisions -- to connect to a charger or not. It just is always fully charged. I have not yet experienced it running out of power during a pickup session."
This is the Ultimate Air Mattress
Unlike conventional air mattresses, this guy lifts up off of the floor and becomes almost like an instant bed. Perfect for camping or for any unexpected guests!
The reviews say: "I really like the quality of the material that the bed is made out of. It feels sturdy and like it will last which is important to me. I also liked that the bed doesn't wobble or tip when you get on and off of it. You can actually sit on it without it sinking in. I think that this is a very good purchase for the price, and I hope to not buy another air mattress for a very long time."
This Food Processor Makes Blending a Breeze
This uber-powerful machine will make short work of any of your chopping needs for a bargain price.
The reviews say: "This HB food processor does everything we ask it to do - chopping, blending spices for rubs and flavorings, dicing, mixing - quickly, efficiently, quietly (all things considered), and safely. It has gecko feet that hold to granite and marble counters. It cleans easily. I've gone through a KitchenAid and 2 Cuisinarts (these were NOT user-friendly) that cost at least twice as much. Never again. Thanks, Hamilton, and give our best to Beach."
This Air Purifier is Cute and Compact
Unlike most air purifiers, which are large, cumbersome, and take up a whole corner of a room, this one subtly plugs in and still keeps your home free of dust and allergens.
The reviews say: "Great for small areas. I recently moved our cat litter boxes into a closet since we couldn't stand the odor. I have an electrical outlet in the closet since it's an old home. I have a cat door leading into the closet and with this unit, the smell has been cut by 95%. The fan makes a slight noise but with the door closed we can't hear it at all."
Upgrade Your Bed with These Fancy Sheets
New bed sheets are one of life's truest and purest joys - and these have a high thread count for a luxe feel. There are tons of color options, too.
The reviews say: "I've never had bedding this soft in my life. That doesn't say much for my life, but this is bedding is like sleeping under mink fur. I loved it so much I have another set arriving tomorrow. I'll be purchasing more of these babies."
The CeraVE SA Cleanser is packed with Salicylic acids, which helps clear out the pores and helps prevent congestion and blackheads over time.
The reviews say: "It lasts FOREVER! My pimples and blackheads are at a MINIMUM. I haven't seen any pimples on my face in weeks. It is unscented so its perfect for sensitive skin."
Use the blade of this avocado tool to slice around the edges of your fruit, then pull out the stone with the corer, and finally create perfect pieces with the separator.
The reviews say: "This product is for you, if you even looked through these reviews to decide if you truly needed an avocado slicer the answer is clear, your avocado obsession clearly requires this. I will admit, you can do everything this tool does without it, you may lose a minimal amount of avocado by using a knife instead to remove the seed and cut it open. This product is mainly for convenience's sake. I will say however the convenience is uncanny, simple to use, cuts everything just how you want it, and is worth the small investment for the future of my avocado enjoyment."
Prevent a Dusty Floor with These Mats
Simply place these mats at the entrances of your home, and they'll catch all the dirt from the bottom of shoes. It'll dramatically cut down on your cleaning!
The reviews say: "LOVE THESE! They come in a 2 pack so I used one for my front door and back door and they are perfect. Bigger than I originally thought but it's totally fine. Even better is they are non-slip. Such a great deal!"
This Jumpsuit is Comfy and Stylish
This jumpsuit is made from a super soft material and comes in a range of colors and inclusive sizes. Even better? It has pockets!
The reviews say: "So soft and so comfortable! I love this jumpsuit and highly recommend it! It seriously feels like you're wearing your PJ's and it's amazing."
A Cast Iron Skillet is a Kitchen Staple
A good cast iron skillet is something you can keep for life - and because it can go inside the oven, it's extremely versatile.
The reviews say: "I love this skillet! I've used it on the stove:gas and electric(on glass tops do not drag this skillet on it, it will scratch the glass) as well as over fire outdoors. I've owned it for 8 months now and it still looks as new as it did 8 months ago."
This Shampoo and Conditioner Tones Your Hair
If you have lighter colored hair, it can be prone to becoming warm and orangey over time. One wash with this set will add cool tones back in, giving your hair a fresher look.
The reviews say: "I've been using this shampoo as a treatment weekly for a month now and it transformed my hair color! I completely cover my DRY hair in the shampoo and leave it on for 30-45min then wash out and shampoo again & condition. It got rid of all the brassy tones & left me with the ashy color I was looking for! Excellent product."
This Mascara is a Total Bargain
Some mascaras can set you back too many dollars - but this one is affordable, while still performing as well as higher-end brands.
The reviews say: "I never write reviews for things, but this mascara was just so great I felt like I had to! I love lashes, and my friends are used to me wearing thick coats of mascara at all times. Despite this, I got complimented on my lashes basically every time I wore this mascara this week. Multiple people even asked if I had extensions! This mascara isn't clumpy at all and makes your lashes super long and defined without sticking them together. I've never had any problems with flaking, and although it isn't waterproof, I've definitely used eyedrops, shed a tear, and gotten stuck in rain without them smudging or running down my face. All in all, this is my new holy grail mascara, and I'm thrilled!!"
These Blocks Cool your Drink without Diluting
Conventional ice cubes add water to your drink as they melt. But these chiller blocks don't melt - just infuse your drink with cold.
The reviews say: "I stopped using ice and Love the taste of undiluted bourbon/whiskey and scotch with these stones. The stones are just the right size, use two or more per drink to chill the drink, it also makes it look very nice."
A Pillow to make Bathtime Comfier
Trying to relax in the bath while resting your head on the uncomfortable edge of the tub is sometimes impossible. This pillow will change all that.
The reviews say: "So if you're like me who lives in an apartment you know the bath has little to offer. I was hesitant to buy this product knowing I didn't have a head ledge for the top bend to really rest on. But after putting it in my tub and soaking in a long-deserved bath this item was just what I needed. No stiff neck or sore back. Easy to place and clean. This is something I'll recommend to all."
For those who struggle with counter space, this clever chopping board slots over your sink! It even has a built-in colander for easy washing.
The reviews say: "This is great. I love the little red colander which we use even when we don't use the cutting board. Folds flat for easy storage. Very happy with this product!"
An Instant Pot Makes Home Cooking Work for You
Not only are Instant Pots renowned for making home cooking convenient (you can literally set it and forget it) but it has so many other uses!
The reviews say: "I use this for everything! How did I live without this before???"
The Hair Tie is Perfect for Thicker Hair Types
Anyone with a lot of hair knows the pain of tying it back only for it to break free minutes late. The Invisibobble has a firm grip for the most unruly of ponytails.
The reviews say: "I was skeptical of getting what looked like an 'old fashioned telephone cord' to put in my hair, surely it wouldn't work and it would get stuck and be a pain to take out - so glad I was wrong! I have pretty thick hair and it tends to weigh me down and fall out eventually. Most hair ties get super stretched out and end up getting thrown away, but not the Invisibobble. Where have these been all my life?? I (so far) have only used one of the three in the package, it's been over a month now and I love it! I use it to do a high or low bun, it makes it easy to pull hair and loosen it, but still holds everything securely. I am very pleased with my purchase and have recommended it to friends. It is gentle, doesn't pull out your hair, holds a lot of hair securely, doesn't dent like your normal ponytail holder, and overall is very durable for lots of hairstyles. I'm one happy customer!"
These Bag Clips are Absolutely Adorable
Not only do these little clips ensure all of your bagged food stays fresher for longer, but just look at them! The 6 animals are bound to brighten your day.
The reviews say: "These animal-shaped bag clips are very cute -- they put a smile on my face when I'm putting away leftovers -- and they seem sturdy."
