35 Buzzy New Products On Amazon That Are Totally Worth The Hype

Most of the time, when I try out a new product I see on Instagram or social media, it doesn't live up to my expectations. I don't know what's worse: wasting $20 on a rainbow highlighter, or the disappointment that comes with it. But sometimes — well, a lot of the time as long as you know where to look — the products trending on Amazon actually live up to the hype.

If you have a deep love for Amazon Prime like I do, you'll be happy to find that nearly the entirety of this slideshow is comprised of practical products that are pretty affordable — like a beauty oil that hydrates your skin with real 24-karat rose gold flakes, socks that are infused with copper to naturally keep unwanted odor at bay, or a travel pillow that keeps you cool. They might all sound different, but they have one thing in common: They're all buzzy products you've probably seen floating around before, but were hesitant to buy. Well, don't be! According to reviewers, these things actually work really well.

Whether you're shopping for someone else or simply just perusing around out of curiosity, these genius products on Amazon are all certainly worth the hype they've received.

1. The Balm That Uses Emu Oil To Soothe Bug Bites, Cuts, And More

Emu Joy Bug Bite Stick, $14, Amazon

There's almost nothing worse than getting a bug bite out of nowhere, leaving you constantly scratching yourself for even just a second of relief — but with the Emu Joy bug bite stick, all you have to do is rub it over the bite and poof. No more itching. Emu oil is very similar to our body's own natural skin oil which allows this balm to absorb quickly into your skin for maximum and fast relief. That's not all, though. This balm also works on chapped lips, sunburns, small cuts, and scratches, too.


2. A Lightweight Pouch That Holds A Water Bottle While You Run

Running Buddy H20 Pouch, $14, Amazon

Going for a jog with a water bottle is necessary but also a huge pain — it feels unnatural to hold it, and it can be cumbersome to carry a backpack. Not only does this inventive pouch allow you to carry 7 ounces of water on your waistband as you run, but the bottle is designed with a smooth contour so that it feels comfortable against your hips.


3. The Cutting Board That Prevents Food From Falling Off The Edges

Dexas Chop & Scoot Cutting Board, $7, Amazon

We've all been there: you've minced and chopped all your veggies into neat little piles, only to have a few pieces roll off the edge of your cutting board onto the floor as you try to slide them all into a pot or pan. This cutting board solves that problem by having raised, curved edges that keep your chopped foods on the board and provide an easy path to funnel them off right into the pot. Each board is dishwasher-safe, and also has non-slip feet that keep it in place as you chop.


4. A Hand Grip That Relieves Stress While Strengthening Your Muscles

OmniGrip Strength Trainer Hand Grip, $17, Amazon

Stress balls might be fun freebies, but they rarely ever make you feel better since they're generally too soft for any actual stress relief. The OmniGrip strength trainer hand grip can not only be used as a stress ball, but its multi-directional and dense construction helps you build strength in your hands and forearms as you squeeze it. Unlike other hand grips, this one is designed with a full egg-shaped palm fit, so that it targets trigger points in your hands for added stress relief.


5. The Hydrating Lipsticks That Last Up To 12 Hours

MOODmatcher Lipstick, $24 (Set Of 6), Amazon

Not only do they have up to 12 hours of clinically proven staying power so that you're not left with faded lips halfway through the day, but they've also been enriched with Aloe Vera and vitamin E to give your lips a boost of hydration. Best of all? Each color changes instantly and responds to your personal body chemistry, making each shade completely unique and personalized to you.


6. An Egg Slicer That Also Works With Fruits And Cheeses

Internet's Best Handy Slicer, $10, Amazon

Maybe it's because I'm a bit of a dork, but I love finding products meant for one thing that can double as another — and while this egg slicer is mainly meant for eggs, it can also handle kiwis, strawberries, mushrooms, soft cheeses, and more. The stainless steel blades easily cut through almost any soft vegetable or fruit you can fit in them, and the built-in locking switch keeps small hands safe when not in use. And because it's dishwasher-safe, you won't have to worry about hand-scrubbing in every nook and cranny just to get it clean.

8. A Sock That Uses Copper To Help Reduce Unwanted Odor

Copper Fit Unisex No-Show Socks, $10, Amazon

Most socks aren't breathable, which means most socks cause sweaty feet — unless you're wearing the Copper Fit unisex no-show socks, of course. Just like the name hints, these socks have copper infused into the fabric to help reduce odor naturally without any harsh chemicals or unwanted additives, and the fabric itself also wicks away moisture to help keep your feet dry.
