4 Amazon Products That Are Actually Worth Your Money

These days, the accessibility of online shopping makes it almost too easy to blow all our extra cash on things we don'really need.

One of the biggest culprits of this unnecessary spending? Amazon. Especially if you have a Prime account (or use your parent's account like so many of us do), it can be too tempting to click that little "add to cart" button every time you see a new product you want. Most of the time, however, we're just buying junk that doesn't really improve our lives—but that doesn't mean that everything you find on Amazon isn't worth your cash. We've gathered up a short but sweet list of products you can find on Amazon that are actually worth your money, below!

1. A Silk Pillowcase

Did you know that your pillow—or more accurately, your pillowcase—could be secretly wreaking havoc on your skin and hair while you sleep? While the evidence may be hard to notice, it's true. Cotton and other fabrics are made of small fibers that can actually tug at your hair and skin, which can cause everything from breakouts and frizz to wrinkles (more so a worry later in life, but it's never too early to have a good skincare routine). These fabrics can also be part of what makes you too warm when you sleep. Silk, on the other hand, protects your hair and skin and keeps you perfectly comfortable.

It can be hard to find an affordable silk pillowcase, especially if you shop in person, but Amazon actually has a few good options for less than 20 bucks. And if you want to save a little more, you can opt for a satin option that provides similar results at a much lower price point.

2. A Hangable Makeup Bag

If you're anything like us, you probably underestimate the amount of makeup, hair products, toiletries and skincare you have that you simply need to take with you on every trip. Thankfully, you no longer need to shove all your products into one deep makeup bag (or multiple if you lean towards chaos), as Amazon offers some lifesaving solutions. The best that we've found is a packable travel bag that not only folds up into a cute makeup bag with a handle but also hangs up with a convenient little hook. This saves you counter space and frustration, no matter if you're constantly on the go or just need to save some room at home.


3. An Essential Oil Diffuser

Are you always burning through candle after candle as part of your self-care routine, burning through all your hard-earned cash in the process? Well, now you can get all the soothing scents and relaxing vibes without the flames and the constant need to buy more with an essential oil diffuser. These handy gadgets come in all sorts of cute shapes and sizes, so you can select the right one to suit your style and complement your space. Most also double as lights that change colors, adding an extra vibrant touch for some additional soothing properties. Pro tip: order your essential oil kit from Amazon in the same order so you can actually use the diffuser once you get it. The directions will be there for you on the package, but all you need to do is add a few drops (you can also mix and match multiple depending on your mood) to the diffuser with plenty of water and turn it on, then the vapors will provide all the effects!

4. An Air Fryer

Yes, an air fryer is worth it—trust us. Whether you're still living at home or are about to head off for dorm life, an air fryer is a young chef's best friend. Just throw in your favorite frozen snacks and let them crisp up with a fraction of the time and effort of using an oven, or get creative if you're a secret culinary pro. And thankfully on Amazon, you can find some small versions meant for cooking for just one person that are a lot cheaper than other models you'll find.
