When it comes to online shopping, reviews are everything. You don't have the benefit of seeing a product in person or holding it in your hands, so your decision comes down to price, photos, and the wisdom of your fellow shoppers. Naturally, your first instinct is to look at a product's average rating. This can offer a general idea of whether people think highly or poorly of an item. But if you want to go deeper, if you want to get a sense of what people really think and what words they would use to describe this piece of sports gear or that kitchen gadget, you need to take a closer look at the reviews.
After combing through thousands of glowing reviews, we've curated this list of 60 products with some of the best accolades on Amazon. From brilliant, space-saving organizers to some of the most widely-used beauty products around, you can be certain that these helpful, popular picks are absolutely worth the money.
