People Just Can't Seem To Get Enough Of These 55 Cheap Products On Amazon

We only recommend products we love and that we think you will, too. We may receive a portion of sales from products purchased from this article, which was written by our Commerce team.

What can’t you find on Amazon these days? Very little, actually. In my opinion, the vast selection on Amazon rivals basically any other online marketplace — but sometimes, it takes a little digging to find exactly what you need. There are simply so many options out there, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the sheer number of choices (especially when people just can’t seem to get enough of them).

In spite of the extensive selection, there are certain Amazon products that emerge from the pack as fan favorites. They consistently get the job done, and they have overwhelmingly great ratings. There’s no need for you to spend time sifting through hundreds of reviews, either — because these products have been tried, tested, and approved by thousands of happy customers. And we’ve taken it a step further and compiled a bunch of them–all at affordable prices–for you here.

Getting ready to go on vacation? You’ll definitely want this hanging toiletry bag that holds all your personal care products, and even a calming lavender pillow spray to help you fall asleep in a new bed. Or maybe you’re making your home your personal zen garden. In that case, a relaxing miniature water fountain — along with a rose-scented reed diffuser — are must-haves. But the best part is that all of these products are made for those who are ballin’ on a budget.

Ratings don’t lie, and neither does money. Read on for the best cheap products on Amazon that customers keep buying.

This Powerhouse Facial Serum With Vitamin C For Boosting Skin

Vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin E are all considered powerhouse ingredients in the skincare world, and you get all of them in this TruSkin facial serum. Together they target dryness, hyperpigmentation, dullness, free radicals, and fine lines. Over 51,000 five-star ratings speak to the effectiveness of this serum, and one customer even reported, “I am 23 years old, a medical student, with very TIRED, acne-prone, and dull skin [...] it has helped me tremendously and in a very short time.”

A Super-Fine Water Mister You Can Use For Basically Anything

There are few things I love more than a super helpful, multi-use home gadget, and this water mister spray bottle is one. It can be used for haircare products, watering plants, cleaning solutions, you name it. It releases a targeted, super-fine mist of liquid from any angle. No leaks, no loss of product, and it thoroughly saturates whatever you’re spraying.

A Toiletry Bag That Actually Holds Everything You Need On Vacation

As a self-confessed skincare fanatic, I have a pretty extensive personal care routine that’s hard to pare down for travel. This hanging toiletry bag looks like the only bag that might actually be able to hold my entire routine. I love that it folds up compactly and has a hook at the top so it doesn’t take up precious counter space. There are some smart storage solutions built in, like elastic straps to hold bottles in place, double zipper compartments with clear linings, and multiple pouches.

This Scalp Exfoliator Promotes Hair Growth & Scalp Health

A scalp exfoliator can do wonders for your head health: the silicone bristles stimulate your circulation and help remove dandruff, build-up, and dead skin cells. The stimulation may also promote hair growth and relieve itchy scalps. I’ve been using one for over a year, and it’s practically eliminated my chronic dandruff. (It also just feels really nice and luxurious to get a head massage every morning!) Those with thick or curly hair might also find it helpful for getting shampoo to fully reach the scalp.

For less than $30, this infrared heat hair dryer can be yours. The price is unbeatable, and so are the results. It’s ceramic-coated with infrared heat for bringing shine and softness to your hair.

These Super Soft Hair Towels That Help Reduce Damage & Unwanted Frizz

These super absorbent microfiber towels help reduce unwanted frizz, and they’re way lighter than traditional bath towels. They’ll dry your hair quickly and more gently without damaging it. I’ve been using this style of towel for years, and I notice a difference in my hair every time I go without. They’re a must-have for all, but especially those with damaged hair and those prone to unwanted frizz.

A Set Of Hair Clips That Are Made For Styling

These adorable hair clips are a styling essential. The pack of eight are designed to hold your hair back while you’re washing your face or putting on makeup without leaving dreaded creases in your hair.

A Natural Shower Brush Perfect For Dry Brushing Your Skin

This Metene shower brush has a long wooden handle so you can get those hard-to-reach places, soft-but-sturdy nylon bristles, and a rope hook at the end for handy storage.

This Skincare Tool Duo Helps Reduce Inflammation And Signs Of Aging

For a relaxing facial treatment, there’s nothing I recommend more than investing in a face roller. This jade roller and gua sha set has everything you need to get started: a double-ended jade massage roller to relax and rejuvenate your face, and a gua sha tool for visibly reducing unwanted puffiness and inflammation. Both can help your skincare products absorb more effectively, and they have a cooling effect. One of my personal favorite tricks to do with my face roller is to put it in the fridge and use it to massage my face on a hot day.

A Compact Curling Iron With A Ceramic Barrel

If you prefer tighter, classic curls, give the Conair double ceramic 1-inch curling iron a try. The ceramic material will make beautiful, frizz-free curls that will last for ages. It heats up in 30 seconds with 30 different heat settings, and there’s even an auto-off feature and dual voltage for international travel.

A Calming Lavender Pillow Spray To Help You Sleep Better

There are lots of products that can help you get a good night’s rest — but before you invest in something pricy like a new mattress or a fancy alarm clock, try an affordable, calming pillow spray like this one from Muse Apothecary.

This Vegan, Cruelty-Free Sunscreen That Conveniently Sprays On

Here’s a sunscreen pro tip: anything above SPF 50 offers only marginally better sun protection, and can give people a false sense of protection because it makes them feel they don’t need to reapply as often.
