You can tell a lot about someone just by looking at their shopping cart. If it’s filled with home decor, they might’ve just moved into a new place — and if it’s filled with kitchen equipment, you might assume that person likes to cook. As for all of the bestselling products on Amazon listed here? They can tell you a lot about human nature.

Case in point? Nearly every item you’ll find below is captivating and convenient. Many of the will even help de-stress your life by making certain tasks easier to accomplish. Take this water jug pump as an example. It makes the process of filling your cup with water easier than ever — no coolers or faucets necessary. There are also shimmering eyeshadow sticks that make application a breeze, a media stick that provides hundreds of TV shows and movies almost instantly, as well as a facial sunscreen infused with hyaluronic acid that moisturizes while shielding your skin.

Have I piqued your interest? Then make sure to keep scrolling, as these bestselling Amazon products won’t be in stock forever — especially when it comes to that sunscreen.

The gap between car seats is normally where small essentials perish, but this sturdy slimline car organizer makes use of that no-man’s land by nestling into the gap while corralling items that are too small for the cup holder but too essential to store out of sight. (Like your phone or sunglasses.) There are even built-in dividers to keep everything in place when you’re going around tight corners, and each order comes with a set of two so both sides of the center console are covered. Nearly 10,000 shoppers have given them rave reviews so far.

There are plenty of reasons people love this scalp brush, from its dandruff- and buildup-busting capabilities to the ahhh-inducing massage that comes with it. Some shoppers swear the increased circulation even leads to healthier hair. It’s smartly made, too: the flexible silicone won’t damage hair, and two interchangeable heads let you opt for a gentler scrub. The handle cups around your fingers, as well, so it’s hard to drop in the shower. (That said, you can use it wet or dry.)

Fur babies, no matter how beloved, come with their fair share of responsibilities. This cult-favorite cleaner tackles even invisible stains, so you never miss another one of their little accidents. The UV light helps you find where to clean, then the formula goes to work cleaning up soil, removing stains, and neutralizing odors — and keeps working for up to 80 hours so not a trace remains, leaving behind a natural citrus scent. “This stuff is INCREDIBLE!! I just bought a new house and the big drawback was the awful cat pee in the entire downstairs,” one rave reviewer wrote. “I sprayed every single place I found with the UV light,” they continued. “It erased ALL the smell. I even had my mom over who is allergic to cats…she couldn't smell it at all and no headache after an hour!”
