These 39 Highly-Rated Products On Amazon Seriously Deserve 6 Stars
If I could give Meryl Streep 100 Oscars, I would. If I could give my favorite coworker a significant raise, I also would. And if I could give these highly-rated products on Amazon six stars, well... I'd do that, too. But alas, Amazon puts a cap of five stars on product ratings, so you'll just have to believe me when I say that they deserve six out of five stars.
These products are a step above the rest, inspiring thousands of reviewers to go through the trouble of posting ratings and writing reviews that let the rest of us know just how good they are — and I appreciate that. (Hey, it makes my job easy.)
And while you might think that a product deserving of six stars might have a hefty price tag to go along with it, think again. Believe it or not, all of these products are surprisingly affordable. That means you can do a lot of shopping and still have money to eat out at that six-star restaurant you've been meaning to try. (Is that a thing?)
Anyway, go ahead and check out these outstanding and underrated products; you just might end up writing a review, too.
1. This Silky Coconut Oil For Smooth Skin And Lustrous Locks
This coconut oil is made from 100% raw, natural, virgin coconut oil — and it's silkier and more lightweight than the coconut oil you might find on a grocery store shelf. That, of course, makes it ideal for hair and skincare. Rich in vitamin E and fatty acids, the oil can be used as a face and body moisturizer, a deep hair conditioner, makeup remover, shave oil, or a base for homemade deodorant.
2. A Flat Brush For Flawless Foundation Application
With over 12,000 reviews and a high rating, this foundation brush will give you impressive results at a cheap cost. The Kabuki-style brush features dense and silky synthetic bristles that flawlessly apply powder, cream, and liquid foundation.

The popper is also dishwasher-safe and available in 12 vibrant colors.
5. A Super Lightweight Backpack That Folds Up Small
This super lightweight, packable backpack folds up small, taking up minimal space in your luggage. However, it's still durable enough to hold plenty of gear once you unfold it and put it on.

Choose from colors like gray, pink, and army green.

10. A Slim Travel Belt That's Invisible Under Clothes
Keep your passport, cash, and credit cards where no one can get to them with this travel money belt.
