Having reviewed many thousands of products over the course of writing these articles, I've developed a pretty sure hand at separating the wheat from the chaff, so to speak, when it comes to great discoveries on Amazon. Not only do I plumb the depths of Amazon's most niche areas to surface incredible finds, I also ping friends, family, and coworkers for their own favorites, which more than half the time, I want to try myself.

From discoveries I can't wait to try - like a volcanic stone roller that absorbs skin oil - to things that we already own and love - like these incredibly well-reviewed pillows - I've assembled 70 of my all-time favorite finds here. And I'm sure you'll find a few to add to your own list!

It's the mascara that almost broke the Internet - this Lash Princess mascara has over 213,000 glowing reviews right now. It seriously makes it look like you're wearing false lashes thanks to the special wand that creates so much volume, the before and after reviewer pics will amaze you! The cruelty-free mascara lasts all day so you can be confident it won't smudge, smear, fade, or flake on you.

Weighing it at about 9500 absolutely wonderful reviews, this affordable Vitamin E serum will whip your skin into shape. The brightening Vitamin E is mixed with jojoba, avocado, and rice bran oils in a blend that provides anti-aging benefits like improved moistured and minimized wrinkles, dark spots, and acne scars.

Yoga pants are making a comeback and I'm ecstatic because I've missed them so much! These high-waisted ones from Satina have glorious pockets that are large enough to fit my phone, which is a major plus. Importantly, the sweat-wicking, super soft fabric isn't see through at all even when you bend over.

We have a front-loading washer that gets incredibly stinky if the door's closed for even a few minutes. I've been using this popular laundry door prop to keep the airflow going, and it's made such a difference! The super strong magnet holds the gadget on your washer securely, and the rubber-coated arm won't scratch the finish.

Available in a wide assortment of colors, these Danjor Linens 6-piece sheet sets have a mind-blowing 117,000 stellar reviews! They're super soft, durable, and won't wrinkle or fade despite many washings. Each set includes four pillowcases, one flat sheet, and one extra-deep fitted sheet that fits mattresses up to 16 inches tall. They're even currently half-off on Amazon!

As the fourth most popular Swedish export besides IKEA, ABBA, and the Skarsgard family, these Swedish dishcloths are a kitchen MVP you don't want to miss. They take the place of sponges for washing up and cleaning up spills, and they'll never get that gross smell that sponges often do. They're also an eco-friendly alternative to paper towels since they're made with 70% wood pulp and 30% cotton.

I was tired of changing our whole bedding set out with the weather - out with the fleece blankets and quilts, in with lightweight sheets and bedspreads. But with this down alternative comforter, I can leave the same one on all year-round! It somehow manages to be cool enough in summer and warm enough in winter (perfect in the shoulder seasons, too), and doesn't trigger my allergies.

It was a hard truth that pimples don't stop once you're out of the teenage years. For those annoying bumps that pop up, these incredibly popular Dots for Spots pimple patches are just right for the job. They use special technology or just plain magic to suck out all the pus from the pimple overnight, leaving the bump flat and not inflamed.

My coworker is obsessed with these pillows: "For less than $40 I got two pillows in a strangely small box. About 15 minutes after unpacking them, they lofted into the fullest, squishiest pillows I've owned. They're the perfect mix of invitingly soft, yet perfectly supportive. Easily the best pillows in our house, and a ridiculous value for the price."

If you've got dry, itchy skin or feet that could smell fresher, check out this tea tree body wash. The minty tea tree scent refreshes, while aloe vera and coconut ingredients soothe skin. This stuff's so good it has nearly 25,000 rave reviews right now!

I originally got these highlighters for my daughter to help her study, but I've been stealing them for noting important passages in books or in my work notes! The bright colors won't bleed through, making them excellent for thin pages like in the Bible. I also love that they don't dry out when left uncapped, as my daughter is wont to do!

If you've been searching for the perfect hand and body moisturizer, you've found it. Blossom Essentials Honey Butter is made with super hydrating ingredients like almond oil, beeswax, Manuka honey, and coconut oil for a powerful delivery of natural antibacterial properties, making this magical product ideal for eczema outbreaks and dry, cracked skin. When I say this stuff MELTS right into your skin, I mean it. No sticky residue or waxiness here. Just beautifully moisturized skin and a soft, natural scent.

Extension cords are, by default, generally pretty terrible. Either they're out in the open and a total eyesore, or they're hidden behind your couch, keeping it annoyingly non-flush from the wall. That's what makes the Sleeksocket so great. Its low profile design is barely noticeable, allowing you to extend power where you please without sacrificing aesthetics, or comfort. It even acts as an outlet protector to keep little fingers safe!

You might be asking, "A vacuum just for the car"? The answer is yes, folks, this amazingly handy item keeps my car cleaner than it's ever been. It sucks up all the Goldfish crumbs and puppy hair easily, includes a full-loaded interior car detailing kit in a compact, lightweight design, and a 16 foot cord for easy access.

Made with real volcanic stone, this oil-absorbing face roller helps your complexion glow, not shine. It works better than those flimsy sheets with less waste and won't mess up your makeup. All you have to do to clean is take out the stone and wash with a gentle cleanser, then air dry and pop it back in - totally reusable!

My coworker Allison has this to say about the Circadian Optics therapy lamp:

"Living in the Pacific Northwest, this is the time of the year is tough because it is gray most of the time, and it definitely affects my energy level and sleep cycle. I was hoping this could help, and I definitely notice a difference. I have been using it for about 30-60 minutes a day next to my computer while I work. I notice that my energy level is better throughout the day and I'm sleeping better at night as well."

Think of these Wrap-It storage straps as a cord keeper for your big, unwieldy items like hoses, jumper cables, and extension cords. The weather-proof straps contain and organize everything from garage to boat items with ease because they can hold up to 50 pounds each. You'll get a range of sizes in this pack of six straps for all kinds of jobs.

You know that annoying peach fuzz on your cheeks? These dermaplaning razors are the answer - they remove both hair and dead skin to leave your face super soft and the perfect canvas for makeup application. You can also use these on eyebrows or upper lip hair to keep things neat.

foaming-mask.jpg

You've heard of clay masks and you've heard of bubble masks, but did you realize that there are masks that are BOTH? I hadn't either, but this foaming pick is any acne sufferer's new best friend. The clay pulls impurities forward out of the skin and the foaming bubbles penetrate deep into the pores to clear out any oil or grime left behind. Can you say squeaky clean?

might-bliss-heating-pade.jpg

My husband is a firefighter with a LOT of chronic back and shoulder pain, and I am a distance runner. Between the two of us, we get a great deal of use out of this heating pad. It has three settings so we can crank the heat up when we're extra sore, and it's super moldable (unlike a lot of other, very stiff options) so we can mold it to whatever spot needs a little extra help.

I want less bathroom counter space, said no one ever. This sink topper lets you gain valuable real estate while you're getting ready - it can hold all kinds of makeup, brushes, hair tools, and more. Plus, you can use the textured surface for cleaning your makeup brushes - I love when things pull double duty!

If you're new to the hair primer game, you're not alone. It sounds like just an extra step, right? No, no. This is a crucial component of any hair care routine. Not only does it speed up drying time and add some essential hydration to dry or damaged locks, it also helps to protect hair from further damage from heated tools like blow dryers and curling irons.

Ever burn your wrist or forearm when the oven mitt wasn't long enough? These oven rack shields prevent that problem the easy way. The silicone gadgets just pop onto the front of racks and protect you from burns and scars.

Listen. I am in love with my food canisters. No more unrolling a wrinkled bag just to get a cup of sugar? Sign me up. That's why this adorable farmhouse set caught my eye. They've got everything you need: stainless steel construction, airtight lids, and farmhouse design at an extremely low price tag. You've even got your choice of sealed canisters for pasta, rice, flour or sugar, coffee and tea, or a vented set for garlic, onions, and potatoes.

For anyone who loves the bold flavor of French press coffee, but hates the cleanup (and the wait), I present the JoGo. Invented by two nature guides who wanted access to high-quality coffee everywhere, this clever straw filters your coffee or loose-leaf tea as you drink it, making it perfect for delicious brews on the go, without the need for - or mess of - a press. The stainless steel JoGo disassembles for easy cleaning, and works just as well as a non-disposable metal straw.

Editor's Note: I recently got my hands on a sample JoGo, and it's legitimately awesome. Beautifully made, works perfectly, and incredibly easy to clean.

I'm a certified klutz when it comes to home improvement, so when I was hanging a bunch of pictures, I got this Safety Nailer tool to help. It securely holds your nail in place while protecting your fingers so you don't end up with painfully-smashed digits. You can use it with either hand and it works with both screws and nails.

Angry Orange has taken their expertise in pet odor elimination (which, I can vouch, is incredible), and created this "Eliminati" - an odor-eliminating spray that's designed as an air freshener and stink-killer in one. Keep one in your bathroom to cover your tracks when company's over, or gift one to a loved one who could use it (Father's Day gift idea right here). More than 4,000 users are already singing Eliminati's praises.

Picture it: You're about to pull on your favorite sandals for the first time this season when... oh, no. You didn't realize how much dead skin was camped out on your heels! Put those woes to rest with a scrubber that gently and effectively buffs away any unsightly flakes and callouses. This Bare August foot file uses etched glass to gently-yet-effectively remove all that built-up dead skin, without cutting or irritating the health skin below it, like metal foot rasps and powered removers so often do.

There are few things more annoying than coming in from the rain only to have your umbrella leak all over the floor. The inverted design of this umbrella, though, keeps water from dripping to the inside of it, and its curved handle allows you to safely hang it on your wrist so you can keep your hands free.

Forget those air fresheners shaped like trees, this car essential oil diffuser is where it's at. It simply clips into your vent to circulate gorgeously-scented air that you can customize with your own oil blends. It comes with pure lavender essential oil, but feel free to get creative and formulate your own signature scent!

This illuminating highlighter gives your skin a soft, pearly glisten - perfect for giving depth to that beautiful summer glow. The beeswax-coated formula of the powder is not only incredibly long-lasting and stays on the skin for hours on end, it's also exceptionally water-resistant. Add this to your makeup bag ASAP for a paraben-free and cruelty-free shimmer.

I like to have our knives on hand out on the counter, but the dusty old knife block just wasn't cutting it (see what I did there?). This magnetic knife block is a sleek storage solution that beautifully displays knives and a pair of scissors. It's got nearly 3,500 rave reviews for working well and looking amazing.

My husband built up a little collection of cast iron skillets, and he's quite protective over them ever since I tried using dish soap on his preciouses. He swears by this cast iron oil to keep his cookware in top shape. The organic flaxseed oil seasons and prolongs the life of cast iron, so this is a must-have if you like cooking with it.

I'm always wary of letting my kids lick the whisk after I make batter because I'm worried about the raw eggs, so this is another way to get it clean! This whisk wiper tool not only cleans the whisk in a snap, but it'll clean the bowl as well when you use the edge as a scraper. A neat little gadget every baker should own.

This concealer reached cult status a while back, and it's the only one I'll use now. The Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser works wonders on dark circles and fine lines. The shade selection is pretty extensive, too.

Another favorite of my coworker: "As a perenially itchy person, I've spent years in search of a decent back scratcher, and every one I've tried has paled in comparison to the Cactus Scratcher. It's perfect. A two-sided plastic head features different levels of spikes for different levels of itching, and the telescoping pole is robust enough for some serious scratching sessions. Add to all that the price point, and it's a must-have for anyone who loves being scratched."

This year, I'm going to stop wearing my ratty old yoga pants and slip into something a little nicer, like these fleece joggers. They keep me perfectly toasty while I'm working from home, and I can easily walk the dog or run errands in them without feeling like a schlub. Available in 31 colors and patterns and sizes from XS to 6X, there's bound to be your perfect pair in store.

You try to do the right thing and buy healthy fruit and veggies, but then they end up going bad before you even take the first bite! Keep your produce viable longer with these refrigerator shelf liners. I tried them and I swear my greens stayed fresh way longer than normal.

I love keeping a gratitude journal to gain perspective at the end of a long day, but it can be hard to think of what to write. This 52-week journal makes it easy though, with its daily prompts to list three things you're thankful for. There are also larger sections with questions to help you delve deeper and reflect.

These super stretchy leggings come in two sizes to fit standard and plus sizes.

I love using those fancy-schmancy, bougie soaps, but I feel bad throwing the last chunk away when it gets too small to use properly. But with these soap saver bags, you can get every last bit of use! The fabric is also exfoliating, so you'll have super smooth skin as a bonus.

I'm a note maker, whether it's the weekly grocery shopping list or the menu if I managed to meal plan. This magnetic dry erase board lets me stick it right on the fridge and jot down what I need to whenever I think of it. A bonus is then the whole family can see at a glance and stop asking what's for dinner!

Both my girls have thin, fine hair that's also curly, which creates mega tangles.

Now you don't have to spend extra time in the morning since you can dry, style, and volumize your hair at once while cutting down on frizz.

All that stands between you and a delicious homemade dessert is 25 minutes of play with this ice cream ball!

I didn't believe the hype until I tried it, but this Squatty Potty is now a permanent fixture in our bathroom. It positions your body to optimize your experience for an easy time, every time. I like that the unobtrusive white doesn't stick out too far from the toilet and kind of blends in so it's not right in your face when you walk into the room.

What can't this multitool do?! It's a 14-in-1 gadget that combines an axe, pliers, hatchet, screwdrivers, bottle opener, knife, and more into one compact design. It's small enough to fit in your pocket, but it'll help in so many situations!
