My Favorite Amazon Products

I’m so excited about today’s post, as I’ve been seeing similar ones pop up all over lately and I absolutely love them! Amazon is probably my number one shopping destination, so needless to say I’ve tried many different things. In fact, my account says that I’ve made 51 purchases within the past 6 months LOL! Some have been hit or miss, but some have been life-changing. So, without further ado, here are some of my top Amazon purchases. If you guys love it, I’ll definitely do more of these!

BEAUTY PRODUCTS

Olaplex Hair Perfector No. 3 Repairing Treatment

OH EM GEE. You guys. I had heard about Olaplex for quite some time, but never needed it until about two months ago. Unfortunately, I had a really bad experience at a hair appointment and my hair is a lot different than it was just three months ago. I shed a lot of tears over it, but one of my friends said that Olaplex completely changed her life, so I gave it a try.

Thank the Lord I did! After just one use of the No. 3 Repairing Treatment, I definitely noticed a difference in texture, which was great. I’ve loved it so much that I now use the treatment, coupled with the shampoo and conditioner, once per week and really think it’s made/will continue to make a difference. It’s a smaller bottle and seems like you’ll only get several uses, but I’ve used mine at least 5 times and still have a good amount remaining.

Briogeo Curl Charism Shampoo + Conditioner

Okay, I bought this Briogeo set to help with whatever happened to my hair, and have really loved it so far. I had heard many great things about the Briogeo brand (and am a huge fan of founder, Nancy Twine), and had been wanting to give it a try – so decided the line specifically for rejuvenating curls would be a good start. The great thing about purchasing this on Amazon is that the shampoo and conditioner are currently almost $10 cheaper than on Sephora.

I love the smell of both products, and the consistency is great too! A little bit goes a long way, and it really makes your hair feel soft. I’m not too positive about just how much it’s enhancing my curls, but am going to continue working into my routine. Plus, it’s a clean brand which you know is super important to me!

Silk Pillowcase

I have no idea why it’s taken me nearly 25 years to purchase a silk pillowcase, but I’m so thrilled that I did! Silk pillowcase’s are amazing for your skin and hair, and I highly recommend buying one. African American hair is prone to dryness and breakage with cotton pillowcases, and after my hair incident, I decided to do whatever I could to prevent anything else bad from happening!

I also purchased it because I noticed my skin was dry in the same area on my face from rubbing against the pillow, and have seen a tremendous difference. It’s really such a great deal for only $26!

HOME PRODUCTS

SHOE MAT

This might not seem life-changing, but it totally is. I’m one of those people who freaks out when you wear shoes in the house (do you know how many germs you’re carrying around on those things???), but hate having just piles of shoes in the entryway. I’m short on shoe storage in my new apartment, so when I saw this mat in my friend’s apartment – I knew I needed one. It’s perfect for fitting the essentials that you always wear without having to put them away, and looks so much neater. Plus, it’s amazing for when it’s rainy or muddy outside and you don’t want to track on your floor.

ELECTRIC WINE OPENER

I’ve had one of those screw wine openers that I bought at Big Lots years ago, and it always broke my corks in half and fell into the wine (you get what you pay for)! I decided to take the plunge and buy an electric wine opener, and it’s amazing! It does all the work for you, and there’s no mess. Plus, this one is chargeable and comes with a stand, so you don’t have to continuously replace the batteries.M

What do you think are some of the best Amazon products?!

    OMG, the silk pillow! A few weeks ago I watched this video, where Rosie says that one of her skin-beauty secrets is a silk pillow! ๐Ÿ™‚ I wasn’t really thinking much about it. But now, when I read your post I remembered again. Maybe it’s time to invest and see it myself ๐Ÿ™‚
