Hey, so I know the title of this article says "37 Products I Could Use Every Single Day," but I'm here to tell you that I do use these 37 items every single day ... or close to it. This isn't one of those "If only I could buy these ..." types of lists or "This products are on my wish list" kinds of articles. I owe every one of these items, purchased with my own hard-earned cash. Why is that important? Here's why: Because you know I'm serious about how good these are and I want to share it with all of you. From kinesiology tape that relieves my poor plantar fasciitis (seriously, and no M.D. required) to a cargo carrier that'll organize your trunk, and from a tiny, but effective label printer to the best-ever swimsuit coverup, I'm giving you a peek inside my world with these 37 finds you can grab right on Amazon. Now, I'm not claiming I'm going to save you money, although you know the best deals are on Amazon. But, I am saying, some of these are life-changing. It's up to you to decide which ones. Happy shopping!
I Love Labels
I didn't even know a label maker this chic existed until hashtag Amazon. I thought they all looked like chunky mini-computers with built-in keypads. This one is great because it's so streamlined and portable. Using an accompanying app right on your smartphone, you can adjust the text, font, colors, size and so much more. Once you send the label to the printer, it spits it out faster than you can say, "Prime two-day delivery."
Cool Story, Bro
A couple of years ago, I bought a skincare fridge as a gift and, let me tell you, it wasn't cheap. I think I gave almost $100 for it. Fast-forward to now and I've had an epiphany: This retro Frigidaire mini-fridge does just as good of a job for — get ready for this — as low as $20. I know, I was shocked, too. If you don't need it to store skin care products, I guess you can also stash colas or even brews in there.
Eat More Hole Foods
Man, I like donuts. Glazed, cream-filled, powdered, even donut holes, I do not discriminate. I've even been known to indulge in a protein donut or two. You're about to stop reading, aren't you? Hear me out. These pre-packaged delicacies are low in sugar and high in protein so you can indulge without the guilt. This cake batter-flavored option was described by one reviewer as "very filling."
A Multitasking Multistick
Someone in the reviews described these all-natural color multi-sticks as "comparable to Boom," and I'll be honest ... I have no idea what that is. What I do know is I bought one of these little three-in-one sticks for cheeks, lips and eyes in Rose Dust and immediately went back and ordered two more in other shades after I received it. It's the perfect size to throw in a pocket or purse to deliver high-impact results with just a swipe.
Erase the Day
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! I bought these when I could no longer find a similar product on the shelves at Walmart and they're every bit as good. Maybe better, even, because they come in a handy, pocket-sized pack.
It's Just Like Magic
Now you know if a product has the word "magic" in its name, it better deliver. And, this all-purpose skin cream called Egyptian Magic more than delivers. I get it, the packaging isn't sexy, but would you rather pay for great packaging and subpar products? I didn't think so. Egyptian Magic has its own cult following on Amazon, including comments like "This cream is absolutely amazing! I'm addicted to this stuff!"
Croc It Like It's Hot
People have a love-hate relationship with Crocs. They've been the butt of numerous jokes, but these sandals are no joke at all. Dubbed the Kadee II, slipping a pair of these Crocs on is like walking on a cloud. They have a cute crossover pattern on the top of the foot and more colors than the rainbow itself. Did I mention how comfortable they are? I have them in Fresco and I plan to wear them everything this summer.
A Towel For in the Shower
Repeat after me: Towels don't belong in the shower. Towels don't belong in the shower. This towel belongs in the shower? I'm now questioning all of my life choices. This is an exfoliating shower towel made in Japan and reviewers say it leaves their skin softer and cleaner than ever. I love its exfoliating capabilities and how well it helps your soap or shower gel to lather.
Too Hot to Handle
You protect your bathroom vanity from hot hair tools, right? Cough, cough. If you don't, you need to start and this cheap heat-resistant mat is definitely the way to do it. Not only does it function as a mat that lies flat on your bathroom counter, but if you need to grab your curling iron and run, simply open the mat for a — surprise! — heat-resistant pouch. Not bad for less than five bucks.
Don't Be Fooled By the Rock(Tape) That I've Got
I've struggled with plantar fasciitis (self-diagnosed, thank you to Dr. Google) for a couple of years. Well, imagine my surprise when someone on Facebook recommended kinesiology tape to help alleviate pain and discomfort. I tried it once and I was hooked. This tape is the best of the ones I've tried because it adheres well and stays put. The roll also comes in a travel case, which is handy for grab-and-go usage.
To the Window, To the Wall-et
Come clean for a second: Do you really need everything in your wallet? The answer is no. Most likely, you rely on one or two debit or credit cards, a driver's license and some insurance cards to get you through the daily grind. I bought this credit card holder to help cut down on the amount of junk I was toting around in my purse and I couldn't be more pleased. It's well-constructed with a zipper that slides easily and a cute bee detail that makes it look way more high-end than $15.
Tame the Junk in Your Trunk
I finally broke down and got a storage unit here at my complex, which means I got all the beach gear that was normally in my trunk out and, can I just tell you, there's so much room for activities! The first thing I invested in after I got the junk out of my trunk was a cargo organizer like this one. Now I have plenty of space and the stuff I do need is sorted and organized.
These Spoons Measure Up
I really enjoy cooking and baking, but you know what I don't enjoy? Traditional measuring cups and spoons on that annoying ring. You know the one, the one you have to unsnap and remove everything from just to get to the one spoon you need? This set from OXO works with magnets (no annoying ring!) so you can get to the cup or spoon you need without disturbing all the others. That's a big deal.
Secure the Bags
One of my resolutions this year was to cut down on the amount of plastic I'm bringing into my home. I haven't gone all eco-crazy or anything, but a simple fix for me has been to swap plastic shopping bags for this set of reusable shopping bags (which I store in my cargo organizer, FYI). Made of rip-stop fabric, these are lightweight, waterproof and come in a ton of cute patterns.
No More Oil Spills
The name of this product is Zero Sebum, which tells you exactly the task it performs: Removing shine and oil from your face for a perfect, matte finish. I bought this after a friend recommended it and I could not be happier with the outcome. If you have oily skin, this one is a no-brainer, especially for $6. I recommend one for your car, another for your makeup bag and one for home.
Go Under Cover at the Beach
I've lived at the beach for four years now and, in that time, I've been on a perpetual hunt for the perfect swimsuit coverup. The bad news is I spent way more than I should've to try different options. The good news is, I finally found the one. This coverup is sheer, soft and breathable with sleeves so you can cover up when you've had too much. I started with black and have graduated to navy and, most recently, dark cyan.
I'm Your Biggest Fan
I want to call every product on this list "my favorite," but you wouldn't believe me, would you? But this one is so, so close to one of the best things I've ever bought on Amazon. I've tried a lot of mini handheld fans (hey, I live in Florida, give me a break), but they ultimately let me down. This one has three powerful speeds, a folding design and crazy-long battery life.
Light Up Your World
I've reached the stage of life where low light is no light for my getting-older eyes. I grabbed one of these neck reading lights not so much for reading, but for knitting blankets in a darker corner of my living room. You could totally use this for reading, too, just so you know. The arms are flexible and the lights cycle through three colors and six brightness levels to get it just how you like it.
Donut Skip this One
Has an item ever been so good it makes a list twice? I'm breaking new ground here, people, and what better way to do it than with donuts. I'm back with the protein donuts from earlier, this time in chocolate. All the same deets still apply, although most reviewers seem to love the chocolate the most — and why not? It's chocolate, for crying out loud. Just buy some already.
Everyone's Favorite Knock-Off Belt
I will not pay $500 for a belt ... I will not pay $500 for a belt ... and why should I? This Earnda faux leather belt is abouthisclose to the real deal from a company whose name rhymes with "smoochie." But, you know what's different? This belt is $15. 1-5. Less than 20, more than 10. And, people love it ... including me, I'm people. One reviewer said, "It's got a designer look without really being a tacky dupe or knockoff."
Curls for the Girls
Let me preface this one by saying A. I'm a loyal devotee to Dyson hair tools. I have them all. and B. I was a loyal devotee to Hot Tools, which is a less expensive brand that makes pro-level products. But, this curling iron is a new fave. It features a 1.25-inch, extra-long barrel with tourmaline ceramic that literally glides through your hair like a knife through hot butter. Did I mention it's $20? Go get it, girl.
Lay Your Head on My Silk Pillowcase
Speaking of hair ... the single best thing I've done for my hair is investing in a mulberry silk pillowcase like the one pictured. I legit had a woman ask me a week or two ago, "How is your hair so smooth when it's so humid out?" Honey, I thank my silk pillowcase. I wake up looking like I just came from a salon blowout for about 80 cents a day. It's also great for your complexion, too.
Get Frothy With This Gadget
For the cost of just two Starbucks concoctions, you can buy this handheld frother and make your own dang coffee at home. Love that rich, thick froth atop your lattes and cappuccinos? No sweat because you can create however much froth you want, thanks to this electric whisk. It's also great for whipping up matcha, protein drinks, smoothies and more.
DripDrop and You Don't Stop
Do you drink enough water? I'm going to make a safe bet that the answer is "no." Me either. To be honest, if I drank as much water as they recommend, I would need a day to be 44 1/2 hours long. You can boost your hydration simply with these electrolyte powder tubes from DripDrop. Simply add a pouch to your water and get three times the electrolytes and half the sugar of traditional sports drinks.
Get the Red Out
I first bought these because I'm a sucker for new products on the market ... and I had eye redness, obvi. I didn't have a lot of faith that they would work quite like the manufacturer claims, but eye was wrong. (See what I did there?) These redness reliever eye drops work almost instantly — seriously, blink and your eyes are bright white. The effects last up to eight hours as well.
Do You Hear an Echo?
What did we do before digital assistants took over our lives? Siri, Google, Alexa ... these are household names anymore. If you've hesitated to get into the smart speaker/digital assistant game, you're the perfect candidate for an Echo Dot. It's Amazon's most popular smart speaker, has a chic fabric design and doesn't take up much of a footprint anywhere. Hey, Amazon, add to my cart ...
Don't Lose Your Cool
Ain't no laws when you're sipping White Claws, except to keep them icy cold which you can totally do with the uber-popular BrüMate Hopsulator. This glitter mermaid design picture is super extra, but if you're sipping from a 12-ounce slim can, you're probably OK with that label. Brümate promises this little can cooler will keep your drink 20 times colder than a typical neoprene can cooler.
The Best Tan of Your Life
I've tried a lot of tanning lotions in my day. I even worked at a tanning salon for a while in college so I'm something of an, ahem, expert. I stumbled upon this Maui Babe Browning Lotion a few years ago and I've never looked back. In fairness, tanning bed operators will not like you using this in their beds, but if you're old-school and prefer to lay out in the sun, your search for the perfect tanning lotion ends today.
Upgrade your Mouse Pad
A few months after I started working from home full-time, I decided it was time to invest in a larger mousepad. And, when I say large, I mean "go big or go home." This extra-extra-large mouse pad will probably cover most of your work surface, which isn't a bad thing in my opinion. It not only gives you plenty of mousing (micing? mousenating?) surface, but it protects your work top as well.
Color Outside the Lines
Please don't tell Sharpies that I'm cheating on them, but these fine-tip drawing pens are vibrant and smooth-writing and, oh hey, just eight dollars. EIGHT. For 18 pens. This child of a schoolteacher is flummoxed! Whether you're into journaling, adult coloring books or just want to add some pizazz to your everyday writing, this set is a must ... and more than 57,000 reviewers agree.
You've Got the Power
You're going to get a charge out of this one. (Ugh, sorry, I'll see myself out.) This portable charger is a must-have. It's slim, lightweight, compatible with multiple devices and can charge three electronics at the same time. One reviewer who said it "deserves more than five stars," also raved about the speed with which it charges — "from 0 to 100 real quick."
Just Diffuse the Situation
I can't let a list of "things I use every day" go by without including my favorite essential oil diffuser ever. This thing is packed with features: ultrasonic diffusing technology, color-changing lights, two mist modes and a remote control. A remote! It's perfect for people (like me) who keep it running most of the day and forget to shut it off until after they're already in bed (also me).
Get Your Pill Lyfe Organized
I'm a lady of a certain age (43, thank you very much) and with that comes new responsibilities ... like taking a slew of pills every day. If I'm going to take them, I'm going to at least look fun (and organized) doing it. This seven-day pill organizer is really well-designed, with removable days so you can grab them and go and three-times-a-day construction, all housed in one closable case. Did I mention it's less than $6?
Dress Up Your Pods
I've bought the last few of my AirPods cases from Amazon and I've been, shall we say, generally happy? I'd spend seven or eight bucks, the case would last six months ... rinse and repeat. I finally broke down and purchased this Spigen AirPods Pro case (still a reasonable $27), and it's love. The color above perfectly matches my keyring and it keeps my AirPods safe with easy access to charging and the earbuds themselves.
Give Yourself Some Space
I never thought I was a monitor stand riser kind of gal, but apparently I am. Here's why. It gives me more desk space, which is always a good thing. It positions my monitor in a way that eliminates eye and neck strain. And, it has drawers for Post-Its, a pen and even a stand for my smartphone. Available in black, white and mint green, this riser is sturdy enough for the largest of the large iMac monitors.
It's Smart Sweets for the Sugar Rush
I've gobbled up these Smart Sweets, I've sent them as gifts and I've gobbled them up myself. Wait, I said that already. It bears repeating because these are simply delicious. This Amazon listing is for a variety pack of six, from sweet fish to peach rings, so you can find your favorite. I appreciate that these goodies are made without artificial sweeteners, sugar alcohols and even GMOs.
This Bottle is S'well
Hi, I'm Beth, and I'm addicted to water bottles. I'm not joking; it's completely out of control. This flamingo print S'ip by S'well is one of my favorites, thanks to its double-layer construction, sweatproof design and skinny style that fits perfectly in my car's cup holders or handbag. S'well is well known for quality water bottles, now they have adorable patterns like Wonder Woman and Mickey House.
