Some of our favorite things start off as a recommendation from a friend. Whether they swear by pillows designed to stay cool all night long or a gel mattress topper to ward off night sweats, we rely on those in the know to give us the scoop on what really works. Now, imagine you had access to the opinions of tens of thousands of friends from all different walks of life — if that many people rally behind something, there's no way it's a dud.
No need to join any new social media groups; instead, trust the opinions of countless Amazon reviewers. They know how to differentiate something gimmicky from something great, and chances are, when hoards of them swear by something, it's the real deal. They're a discerning bunch, and you can use their knowledge to your advantage.

Satin pillowcases that 178,000 shoppers love
If you don't already sleep on a satin pillowcase, you're missing out — it's gentler on your skin and hair than cotton, and prevents those annoying face creases upon waking. It stays cooler, too! Don't want to splurge on silk? This set is a great alternative, and it's just $9!
"LOVE THESE! They are a beautiful shade of gray, well-made and a perfect price!" a satisfied customer said. "I ordered these to help protect against hair breakage, and I've already noticed a huge difference!!!"
The breathable sheets tens of thousands of Amazon shoppers adore — 50% off
These sheets are super soft thanks to 1,800-thread count microfiber fabric, giving you a silky hotel-bed feel every time you slip between them. A nice perk: They're moisture-resistant and cooling, just in case you tend to get a little warm in bed.
Not only that, the Danjor sheets are fade-resistant, allowing you to enjoy the color of your choosing exactly how it was intended for many slumbers to come. And they're available in seven neutral colors.
"These sheets are the best I've ever bought," a fellow happy customer said. "I have been an insomniac since I was 11 years old. I never sleep more than two hours a night. I swear on all that I adore, my first night [on these] I slept for six hours.... These sheets are so soft. Have that slight heaviness that’s just perfect. I just don’t want to get out of bed. I am seriously in heaven with these sheets, and that’s no joke."
The pillows over 131,000 shoppers sleep on
These pillows are made from 100% cotton and gel-filled fiber, making them incredibly soft yet firm enough to provide that all-important support. Move around at night? No-shift construction minimizes bunches and distortion. The combo of cooling gel and breathable cotton is great for regulating your temperature — you'll use these pillows in the winter, spring, summer and fall.
They're also allergen- and chemical-free and won't fade or stain over time. If you want to freshen them up, just toss them in the wash; they'll come out clean and holding their shape. That's right — they're machine-washable!
One shopper shared: "My boyfriend, who is the pickiest man I know, has rated this pillow a 10 out of 10, which says a lot considering he'd find a flaw in just about any product. The pillow holds its shape and supports your head while being soft and comfy. At night, I roll around about as much as a pig in mud and this pillow works in every position."
A top-rated gel mattress topper for over 50% off
This made-in-the-US topper boasts two layers of unparalleled comfort. The pillowtop cover is filled with plush fiber fill, while the gel memory foam keeps you cool all night long. The cover is removable and machine washable, so it's easy to clean, and it'll give new life to old, uncomfortable mattresses.
One shopper reported: "This is one of the best purchases I've ever made. I'm in my mid-50s. I do hard physical work and it's literally the first time in years I wake up not feeling stiff and achy. We put this over one of those box mattresses that my wife felt was too hard. This has been life-changing. My wife...now has pain relief and restful sleep."
Amazon's No. 1 bestselling mattress protector
There's so much to love about this mattress protector. For starters, it's 100% waterproof, so it keeps spills, urine and sweat away to ensure your mattress stays in good shape. It also is vinyl-free and has a hypoallergenic cotton terry surface with a membrane back coating, so no squeaking when you move around in bed.
It even blocks out allergens like dust mites and protects against bacteria growing on your mattress.
"This saved my mattress yesterday," a shopper reported. "I bought this about 6 months ago and have washed it a few times. My pup threw up in the bed — total MESS on the sheet, lifted up the mattress cover and NOTHING on the mattress. So happy I invested in this when I got a new bed."
