Amazon inspires some pretty dramatic reviews — some of them are not so flattering to the product, and others? Well, you'd think they were sent down from above. These dope products on Amazon fall into the latter category, with thousands of buyers nerding out over just how good they are. Example? One reviewer wrote that she is "OBSESSED" with the acupressure mat on this list, and another person reported that a cast iron skillet "has literally changed my life. I use it EVERYDAY." (Yep — it turns out that when people are passionate about products, they tend to hit the caps lock key.)

There's lots more to be had too, with items running the full gamut of what the internet has to offer — a smart Bluetooth jump rope to help you kickstart your workout routine, a hydrating face cream that offers a low-effort way to take care of your skin, and a quartet of Wi-Fi light bulbs that let you voice control your lighting, or even operate it remotely from a phone app.

So if you're ready to nerd out over the best Amazon has to offer, scroll on for these products that fans swear by (and get ready to swear by them yourself).

We only recommend products we love and that we think you will, too. We may receive a portion of sales from products purchased from this article, which was written by our Commerce team.

01

The smart jump rope that keeps track of workout stats

This smart jump rope doesn't just give you a great cardio workout, it also acts as your very own personal trainer.

02

These eucalyptus shower steamers that'll clear your head

Start your day off on the right foot with these stress-releasing shower steamers. Infused with natural mint and eucalyptus essential oils, they release vapors the minute the water hits them, filling your shower with aromatherapeutic scents. They're also great for cold and allergy season, since eucalyptus is known to help relieve sinus congestion.

03

A strainer that clips onto the side of your pots

Draining a big batch of pasta is no small feat, but this strainer frees up a hand that would otherwise be occupied by a colander, which makes the whole process a whole lot easier. It clips onto any bowl, pot, or pan, and when you're done using it, collapses flat for compact storage.

04

This hot honey that reviewers put on everything

If you're looking for a new favorite sauce, Mike's Hot Honey might be it. Combining the sweetness of honey with the spice of chilis, this certified cult-favorite has earned a 4.7-star overall rating after more than 30,000 reviews, with foodies praising the fact that it's got "the right touch of heat" without being overpowering. Try it on pizza, buttered toast, and fried chicken, or try it with cocktails or as an accompaniment to cheese.

05

The acne patches that help clear up breakouts

Breakouts are a fact of life, but you can clear them up fast with these acne patches. Made from hydrocolloid dressing, the transparent patches absorb oil and impurities and protect blemishes from any dirt or pollutants. That means you can keep irritation (and redness) to a minimum while you let your blemish heal.

06

This veggie chopper that speeds up meal prep

This highly rated vegetable chopper makes quick work of onions, zucchini, potatoes, and more — just place your vegetable on the chopping tray and press down on the lid.

07

An acupressure mat that promotes sleep and relaxation

This acupressure mat and pillow set claims to do many things, from promoting a good night's sleep and relaxing sore muscles to relieving headache discomfort... and the fact is — it works.

09

This sunrise alarm clock that wakes you up gradually

If early mornings aren't your strong suit, you'll love this sunrise alarm clock.

There's a snooze function (essential) as well as FM radio and seven alarm sound options.

10

These smart light bulbs that give you tons of options

Upgrade your home's lighting setup with these smart light bulbs.

13

The blue light-blocking glasses

These non-prescription computer glasses can help shield your eyes from the glare of your screen, which can potentially reduce eyestrain and headaches. They may even help you get a better night's sleep (blue light is known to disrupt your circadian rhythm). And reviewers love them. One said, "I'm an indie game developer and spend hours each day staring at two side-by-side computer screens and kept getting headaches after working for a few hours. [...] Turned out my headaches were apparently from eye strain, because after picking up a 3-pack of these [...] I sat down in front of my computer and...no more headaches. They work. GET THEM."

An essential luxury, this silk pillowcase stays cool to the touch all night long, and the smooth texture helps prevent pillow creases on your skin while you sleep.
