I couldn’t tell you the last time I didn’t say “well, let me check Amazon first” before purchasing ANYTHING. Whether it’s my new favorite straw bag, my holy grail cleansing oil, a new beach read, or basically anything I need for my kitchen, I’ll find it with the cheapest price via good ol’ Amazon. Oh, and it will probably be Prime eligible, so I’ll get it faster than I’d ever get over to any store to buy it. Since everyone here at The Everygirl is also obsessed with Amazon, here’s a look into some of our favorite items we’d buy a million times over.
This is THE MOST AMAZING thing I have probably ever purchased for myself. I have a cat and though she be but little she CAN SHED A WHOLE LOT. I programmed this little robo vacuum once and now it zooms around every day at 6:30 pm, picking up all the hair and anything else that has covered the floor. I cannot say enough good things about this and am close to tears as I write this... jk but it is an amazing vacuum are you convinced yet.
I have oily skin and am forever on the lookout for a cleansing wash that strips all the ick from my face without over-drying it aka the holy grail of cleansers. This Avène one comes pretty close to nirvana for your face. Gentle yet incredibly powerful which is also how I like to describe myself.
I have the kiss of death when it comes to house plants which is ironic considering my dad is an arborist who enjoys telling us the Latin names of all the trees we pass on family walks. Guess that skips a generation or something... Anyway, I am forever trying to keep plants alive because I care about my inner peace which is drastically improved when surrounded by lush greenery. Our Director of Brand Partnerships — who is a plant goddess — suggested this nifty little moisture meter and who knew something so simple could be the key to all my problems? I check the moisture of my little plant babies every day now and *fingers crossed* haven't killed any of this round yet.
I buy most of my Korean skincare products on Amazon because there's nowhere to purchase them near me... but also because they come in two days and I don't have to leave the house. This toner is my end-all be-all. If you think a toner is supposed to be drying or smell of alcohol, then you've never tried essence. This super affordable Korean essence feels luxurious and keeps your skin moisturized. I apply it a few times before doing my full skincare routine.
I've bought it so many times Amazon keeps trying to send me a button for it.
These glass containers are the perfect size for meal prepping. And since you can see through them, you can't look in your fridge and ignore your leftovers (guilty). Plus since there are only four, it means if you eat your meal prep each weeknight then Friday = pizza.
Hi my name is Allyson and I'm addicted to decorative pillows. These inserts are the most affordable options that don't lack in quality... because who wants to lay on a flat cotton pad while watching hours of Netflix?
Pro Tip: Buy your insert a few inches larger, so if your pillow is a 20x20, go for the 22x22.
I have dry, sensitive skin so any K-beauty mask with the word nourishing in it is calling my name. This one can be used as an overnight mask, a cream, or a wash off mask. It contains niacinamide, which improves the appearance of your skin, and is fragrance-free.
I bought this book after following @bewellbykelly on Instagram for a few months. Not only is Kelly is a nutritionist to the stars (so whatever she's preaching has to work, right?), but she doesn't believe in diets. She says each meal you eat should have the fat, fiber, protein, and greens to curb hunger and keep your blood sugar regulated.
If you're not already obsessed with vitamin C products for your skin, you're missing out big time. This mask is a must-have for me because immediately after I use it (and for days after) I have an unbeatable glow — like people-think-a-big-life-event-just-happened kind of glow.
I know, I know, this one's a little out there, but it truly is a great product. Dandelion root is uhhhhmazing for digestion. Dandelion tea is great too, but I love a few drops of this extract in a glass of water before a big meal or when I'm having digestion problems (we've all been there).
If you don't know I'm obsessed with shaving my face, than you don't know me. These are the easiest, cheapest, and cutest (I mean they're called "tinkle"!) options, and I shave my face once a month, with a few little touchups here and there, around the brow and upper lip (curse my Italian roots!), but the main reason I use these is because they exfoliate your face like no beauty product can do, and you should be prepared because people WILL ask you if you just got a facial.
I'm notoriously picky about my sunscreens, and this is the one product I have to use every. damn. day. Trust me when I say it is like a face lift in a tube. Something about it totally makes my skin look glowy and even covers any discoloring. It has zinc, which my dermatologist told me is the only kind of sunscreen that works (so it's doctor recommended) and has a ton of caffeine and antioxidants (like green tea) which makes your skin look amazing.
Yes, you've heard of collagen as the secret to supple and younger looking skin, but did you also know our body needs proteins from collagen for many things, from bone health to strong hair? It's kind of the health and beauty cure-all. Add this powder to your smoothies for a quick fix, your morning cup of coffee (such a simple and easy step!), or to your turmeric lattes to channel your inner lifestyle blogger.
I love that these headphones look chic AF in my ears — they match my gold phone case, and the price can’t be beat! Whenever I'm riding the 8 bus downtown like the Everygirl I am, these boujee-looking headphones make me feel like a real PrinCESS of Genovia.
This is my favorite candle scent of all time. One time I was at a restaurant in Dallas that had a better-smelling bathroom than any other place I have EVER BEEN — I spent so much subsequent time thinking about the amazing scent that I LITERALLY found contact info for the restaurant and emailed them a week later asking what scents they burn — they graciously responded, I found their exact candle on Amazon (this one! it's this candle!!), and the rest is history — it’s my absolute absolute favorite.
I know that a TV feels like a weird thing to buy on Amazon, but this is one of my favorite purchases of the last year! Roku TVs are great because they’re “smart TVs” — eliminating the need for a streaming device or stick or whatever! Associate Editor/my deskmate/my bae Kelly also has this TV… we’re both big fans!
Okay so I don’t actually own this dress… but my best friend does, and she LOVES it. It comes in a million colors, it’s a super flattering cut, and it’s so inexpensive. It’s currently in my cart to wear to our Editorial Director’s wedding... This is a sign I need to go for it, right?
