With dozens of distribution centers and millions of products, it’s not common for Amazon to sell out of a product. But there are some products that Amazon shoppers can't get enough of because they make life so much better. And those products go fast.

These genius products have thousands of glowing reviews for a reason — they work. The makeup eraser that removes makeup and dirt from your pores with just water is a prime example of one of those wildly clever viral products. Some of these products are truly inventive, unlike anything else on the market. The bracelet tool that helps you hook your favorite accessory on your wrist, or the motion-activated light that illuminates your purse, are both perfect examples of products that solve common problems that have few solutions.

Either by word of mouth, social media, or a huge need, these products are gone well before many curious buyers can get their hands on one. If you have a few life problems you'd love to tackle with a simple product solution, check out this list — but hurry — these items will probably sell out fast.
