24 Cheap But Useful Amazon Items I Have in My Cart Right Now

Caitie Schlisserman

Call me crazy, but one of my favorite activities as of late is perusing Amazon. (Hey, give me a break—there’s not much to do right now.) I’ll admit that I've been placing at least one order a week, so I like to consider myself an expert by now. I don’t just browse for a few minutes here and there: I like to go deep into the depths of Amazon’s inventory, reading reviews, browsing best-selling lists, and everything in between. I’ve admittedly spent hours doing this, but I've discovered some of my favorite affordable items this way—mostly in the beauty, wellness, and fitness categories—so I can’t really complain. And now you can’t either: Everything that’s currently in my cart is under $75, so sit back and… well, you know what to do. Here are 24 cheap but useful beauty and wellness items on Amazon.

Skincare

NxN Glow Remedy Powder-To-Foam Exfoliator ($16)

Powder-to-foam formula? Count me in. This face wash is made with spherical microcrystalline cellulose that gently buffs skin without damaging skin cells and activated bamboo charcoal that draws out toxins. Sounds dreamy to me.

Baby Foot Original Exfoliant Foot Peel ($25)

I’ve tried a number of different foot peels, and they’re weird and gross but unbelievably satisfying. This one is next on my list.

The Seaweed Bath Co. Whole Seaweed Detox Bath ($8)

I’m not a huge bath person, but lately it’s been helping me unwind at the end of the day. Bathing in seaweed isn’t the most pleasant thought, but the ocean provides skin with so many great vitamins and minerals, so I’m thinking this detox can do the same.

Kerasal Intensive Foot Repair ($8)

Even though we’ll be at home for the foreseeable future, summer isn’t canceled, and I have to keep reminding myself of that, otherwise, my feet aren’t going to be a pretty sight. “Intensive” is what really got my attention, as well as its 4.5 stars with over 1800 reviews.

Tools

Teenitor 7 in 1 Pimple Blackhead Remover Extractor Tool Kit ($9)

I’m known for picking my skin, so this kit is probably not ideal for me to have, but it’s better than picking with my fingers, right? It comes with seven double-sided tools (so 14 different functions) making it easy to pick the right shape and size for whatever you’re trying to extract. Sounds pretty genius to me.

Queenwill F01 Eye Massager ($12)

I’m all for face massagers, but I’ve never used one specifically for the eyes—or even a heated one! It sounds like this little tool uses micro-current technology and high-frequency vibrations to help reduce the appearance of eye wrinkles, dark circles, fine lines, and puffiness.

Daiso Reusable Silicon Mask Cover ($6)

I’m a big face-mask person, so I’ll get anything that’ll help my masks work even better. This silicon cover basically does just that. First, you apply your sheet mask, then layer this over the top. It has little ear loops to ensure nothing slides out of place. All this does is let the most amount of product seep into your skin. More skin absorption = better results.

Spatty Last Drop Spatulas ($12)

I’d do anything in the world to put off replenishing any of my products, so this handy little spatula will help me enjoy every last drop I possibly can before having to restock.

Luter Silicone Exfoliating Lip Brush ($7)

My lips are constantly dry. Like all the time. And it makes wearing lipstick less fun because I’m self-conscious about it. So at this point, I’m down to try anything that promises to exfoliate and scrape away dead skin, like these little silicone tools.

Etude House My Beauty Tool Jellyfish Silicon Brush ($9)

I’ll admit that I’m a sucker for cute-looking beauty tools, but this actually sounds really legit. It’s basically a foaming sponge and cleansing brush in one: The sponge and silicone bristles cleanse pores while making skin feel fresh and renewed. Apparently, you fill the center of the sponge with your cleanser and massage it over your face before washing. For $9, I don’t have much to lose!

Wellgler Ear Wax Removal Kit ($16)

Okay, this might be TMI but my right ear always has way more wax in it than my left. I don’t know why or how, but it’s annoying, especially because cotton swabs don’t seem to help. (And technically you’re not even supposed to use 'em to clean your ears, even though I do…) So this obviously caught my eye. It’s essentially an at-home cleaning kit that softens up the wax with ear drops. Then you fill the bottle with hydrogen peroxide and warm water, add a washing tip, and pump the mixture into your ear. It comes with a catch basin, too, so it doesn’t seem messy at all (or complicated).

SegminisMart V Line Mask ($20)

I swear anytime I’m looking on Amazon, these always seem to pop up. I don’t know how or why, but I’m taking it as a sign that I need to try them. I want to be clear: I 100% don’t believe the before and after pictures, but given how much I’ve been looking down at my laptop (versus looking at my big monitor at the office) I figure I could use a little lifting in that area.

Tinkle Eyebrow Razor ($5)

These are the secret to removing peach fuzz and stray hairs on your face and neck. It’s as simple as that.

MasterMedi Tongue Cleaner ($10)

Tongue scrapers have always weirded me out. But my husband uses one and kind of gives me shit for not, so I figure there’s no better time to try one than now.

Linkinghome Eyebrow Stencil ($13)

Anyone else feel like their brows have gotten out of control? I don’t trust myself to wax mine on my own so I’ve been sticking to tweezing, and now I’m keen to try these. It comes with a bunch of different stencils and a microblade so you can shape your brows more precisely. Exactly what I need to hold me over until I can see my brow expert again.

Lyapko Universal Roller ($30)

I’ve never had acupuncture, but apparently this roller, which is a patented system developed by reflexologist Lyapko, is studded with 496 acupuncture needles made from metals like zinc, copper, iron, nickel, and silver that can help improve skin and muscle pain and give you a boost of energy after a few uses. (PSA: They don’t hurt, either!) These days I’ll try anything that will relieve any sort of tension I’m feeling.

Sanipoe 360 Makeup Organizer ($23)

Who else has the urge to organize anything and everything? This is where I’m at right now.

Hair

Pronexa Hairgenics Lavish Lash ($30)

Over 24,000 reviews is what sold me. Here’s to fuller, thicker lashes and brows.



YoulerTex Microfiber Hair Towel Wrap ($11)

My hair has gotten so long, I dread washing it because then I have to brush it and let it air dry, and it’s a whole thing. I should have gotten one of these a long time ago, but here we are. It’s a microfiber hair towel that’s soft and super absorbent (apparently it absorbs more than 10 times its weight in water), meaning it can dry your hair faster than if it’s wrapped in a regular bath towel.

Zaxop Resistant Silicone Mat Pouch ($7)

I’m always nervous I’m going to burn my counters with one of my hot tools. Not sure why I haven’t bought one of these sooner, but this is genius. It’s made of food-grade silicone and withstands heat up to 460 degrees. You can also use it as a case to store a tool that’s still warm.

Fitness

Synergee Core Sliders ($18)

It’s time I step up my ab-workout game and swap out my socks for these sliders instead.

UpCircleSeven Yoga Wheel ($30)

I’m probably the least flexible person, but I’ve been doing a lot more yoga and pilates at home, and I’ve heard such great things about this. It’s supposed to help with flexibility and balance and core and back strength. Anything that’ll offer extra support is a go in my book.

UrbnFit Balance Board ($31)

If you couldn’t already tell, I’m trying to up my core strength, and this balance board will bring me one step closer to just that. Will I actually use this while I’m working? Probably not, but you never know.

Bodyblade CxT Kit ($71)

Not sure I even fully understand what this actually does, but anything that says it’ll “challenge every major muscle group” gets my instant approval.

Next up, the 25 items I bought From Sephora, Nordstrom, and Amazon to Replace Beauty Services.
