My Amazon cart is always an eclectic mix of practical items I need, products I’ve been wanting to try, and my tried and true products that I always keep on hand. I thought it would be fun to share what I’ve ordered from Amazon lately with you. This recent collection is full of all kinds of fun things, including items I’ve bought to gift this season. I hope my entire family doesn’t read my blog, or there will be very few surprises under the tree this year.
If you love shopping on Amazon like I do, you can find all of my Amazon posts here.
What I’ve Ordered from Amazon Lately
After my recent success with this striped sweater that took inspiration from a J.Crew style, I decided to try a longer version in blue. I’m a big fan of shawl collars, and this blue is so easy to wear with all my neutrals. It’s oversized by design, so I sized down to a small, and the fit is perfect.
My husband wears a size 14 shoe, so finding slippers that fit is a challenge and can be pretty expensive. I ordered him these UGGS to replace his old slippers, and he reports these are super comfy. They come in lots of colors as well.
My grandson blows through Lego kits that are meant for adults in nanoseconds! I decided to give him more of a challenge and bought him this Tiger building blocks set. He can also hang it on the wall because he’s running out of shelves to store his “creations”.
I replaced my heated eye compress which I use every night for my chronic dry eye. I use a tissue between my lids and the pads, but they still recommend you replace them every six months to be sanitary. They help keep the meibomian glands from clogging, so they release the oil that keeps your tears from evaporating too quickly. I’ve seen another specialist about my chronic dry eye and his exam showed these are helping a lot!
I stocked up on this Kevin Murphy volumizer, which has been a constant in my styling routine for close to ten years. I occasionally add a light mouse on top fo this, but I always start with this. It gives a little oomph without weighing my hair down.
I recently mentioned in this post about self-care gift ideas that I needed a new pair of slippers. Vionic makes quite a few different pairs of slippers and house shoes, depending on the look and needs you prefer. I ordered this pair after so many of you recommended them. I have also ordered a few other styles to try and will report back.
Snail mucin is said to be beneficial for your skin due to its hydration, skin repair, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant effects, collagen promotion, and nourishing nutrients. The mucin is collected from ordinary, garden-variety snails, processed, and purified to create a cosmetic ingredient. Snails are not harmed in the process, so I suppose you could call it cruelty-free. After hearing so many wonderful things about this product, I decided it was time to try this COSRX Advanced Snail Mucin. It’s not gooey or gross as I expected, but I’m still a bit grossed out by it so have only used it a few times. Do any of you use it?
My old one broke from repeated use and loading it down with too many products so I replaced this Spinning Makeup Organizer. They’re not the most glamorous way to store skincare but I have a teeny medicine cabinet so this is extremely functional and keeps my bathroom counter free from clutter. I like this one because you can adjust the shelves depending on the height of your items.
This Gleener is the best lint brush I have ever used! This brush, along with my sweater shaver, keeps my sweaters looking brand new. This also works great on upholstered furniture, knit blankets, and coats. I bought one for my apartment in Vancouver and one for a gift.
Collagen is a daily must-have for me because it helps support healthy hair, skin, nails, bones, joints, ligaments, and tendons. Since I don’t eat meat, I always purchase marine-derived collagen products. I switched to this brand because it’s made from non-GMO wild-caught cod and is highly bioavailable and digestible. I simply add one scoop to my morning smoothie or my afternoon tea. It dissolves easily and has no taste.
I should have added this to my gift guide for book lovers! This rechargeable book light helps reduce strain on my eyes while I am reading, especially in the evenings or at nighttime. It has two different brightness levels, and a full charge can last up to 8 hours. I bought several to put in Christmas stockings this year.
French Press Coffee Makers make the best coffee. My husband loves his French Press, so we bought this one to replace the one we left in our new apartment in Vancouver. It looks very sleek, it’s easy to clean, and it feels very heavy-duty.
My joints absolutely cannot make it through a workout or a stretching session using a thin yoga mat, so I upgraded to this 2/5″ Thick Yoga Mat. It comes in many great colors, and it has a carrying strap so you can bring it to the gym, the park, etc.
Does it sound silly to say you love a trash can? Even though this is one of those boring yet practical purchases, this 13-gallon Automatic Sensor Kitchen Trash Can makes life so much easier. Just the motion of your hand opens the lid automatically, so there is no need to open or close the lid. I saw this at my hair salon and ordered one as a gift.
I have been using Amlactin’s Rapid Relief Restoring Body Cream on my feet for years. When I saw they sold a product specifically for foot repair, I knew I wanted to try it. It has a hefty 15% lactic acid plus ceramides, so it both exfoliates and moisturizes. I use it on my heels, and my husband covers his feet from ankle down each night.
Things I’ve Ordered from Amazon Lately:
It’s funny, but it feels very personal to share what I’ve ordered from Amazon lately because so many of them are personal care items. I was thinking it might be interesting to do an “empties” post for my makeup and skincare items. I have a lot of them. Would that interest you?
