40 Quirky Products On Amazon That Are A Huge Hit With Reviewers
Let's be honest: Online shopping is the greatest thing since sliced bread. It allows you to get the same rush of scanning shelves and adding items to your cart (albeit virtually) — but you don't have to get off your couch to do so. In other words, whether you're looking for classic home goods or quirky products on Amazon, the internet is your saving grace.
Of course, when it comes to online shopping, the trick is being able to verify how great a product really is while only being able to use your sense of sight (as opposed to touch and smell, which brick-and-mortar stores allow). The best way to do so is to scout products that are well-liked.
Since actually finding said products can be tricky, I've gone ahead and rounded up dozens of Amazon products that are a huge hit with reviewers. From Bluetooth speakers that double as lamps to flexible extension cords and Himalayan pink sea salt toothpaste, I have you covered. Below, you'll find more than a few things where you'll want to click "Add to Cart." And since they're some of the highest-rated products on Amazon, you won't have to second guess yourself and risk having buyer's remorse.
1. This Silicone Body Scrub That Fits Like A Glove
Looking for ways to elevate your shower and skincare experience? This hand-sized silicone scrubber will do the trick.

And since it's made with stainless steel, it can bear the weight in the process. They can even be used in the bathroom as towel holders.
6. The Toothpaste Made With Himalayan Pink Sea Salt
Yes, it is made with salt — but this USDA-approved Himalayan Pink Salt Toothpaste by Rael has a fresh, minty taste. And while salt might not be your first bet for oral care, it turns out that pink salt is actually antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, so it can work wonders for your gums and teeth. Other natural ingredients included in the toothpaste are rosemary extract, green tea extract, chamomile extract, and more. It's even paraben-free.

If you love hugging a pillow while you sleep (or placing one between your knees), you'll fall head over heels for this twisty, bendable memory foam pillow. It's large enough to be used between your legs or under your back for additional lumbar and hip support, but it also works wonders for your shoulders and neck. Use it in bed at home or mid-flight when the lights go out. Whichever you choose, you'll be cozy and content.

15. A Motion-Detecting Light That Illuminates Your Toilet
To save yourself from an unintentional wet bum (or wandering aimlessly in the dark), outfit your toilet with one of these motion-detecting lights.

But if you don't wash your hair, the color could possible remain in your locks for three days straight.

Hot dogs can be a real treat — especially when they're cooked in a retro hot dog toaster. This sleek, red machine cooks two dogs and two buns in record time.

Even though this isn't a bar of soap, it's quite fitting that it looks like one. That's because this stainless steel bar is designed to absorb odor with a simple pass of the hand.
