Hey, hey, y’all! I have had an Amazon Prime membership and credit card for years, but up until recently, I wasn’t a frequent shopper of the site. I use my card all the time for my Whole Foods purchases (gotta love that discount) but when it came to buying clothes and other Amazon goodies, my purchases were far and few between.
Amazon Hidden Gems: 15 Fashion & Beauty Faves
I recently placed a huge order using Prime’s Try Before You Buy, including this Rebecca Minkoff mini Julian backpack and this pink tie-dye sweatshirt that I will be living in for months! It has that perfect worn-in feeling and balloon sleeves, which has become my go-to selection for sweaters and long sleeves. I also found the most luxe and affordable lounge set ever! It’s only $28 and the quality is absolutely amazing. What I love about the top is that it can be worn for Zoom sessions too, and no one would ever know you’re in loungewear! It is 100% my favorite hidden gem I’ve found while searching on Amazon.
I’ve also been really impressed with The Drop — a fashion boutique curated by influencers who design trendy clothes at an affordable price, which is how I found these amazing faux leather leggings. I have been on the hunt for faux leather leggings forever! I’ve tried Spanx, Good American and several other brands, and nothing had ever fit right. These faux leather leggings, however, are a different story — the fit is amazing, and I love how they look on me. I will say they do feel more like a fast fashion purchase, but they are the only faux leather leggings I’ve found that work and I would 100% be willing to rebuy if and when these wear out.
In addition to all the clothes I found, there are several staples in my rotation that I now order from Amazon all. the. time. including my favorite organic mouthwash from BR Rinse, my go-to mascara from Ilia Beauty, and this electric foot file that has been a lifesaver for my at-home pedicures. I’ll be on the hunt for more hidden gems like these very very soon!
1 / GRAPENT Women Tie Dye Print Pajama Set Loungewear: I love tie-dye and think this set is beyond cute. It comes in so many different color combos too and is perfect for the season!
2 / ZESICA Women’s Casual Long Sleeve Solid Color Knit Pullover Sweatsuit: This is the set that I have been raving about! The quality is amazing and I love that it can transition from lounging around to zoom calls. The sweater has balloon sleeves and feels so good on, too! I cannot express enough how amazing the quality of this set truly is. And for only $28, I am going to be buying more colors! I am wearing an XXL above.
3 / MAXMODA Cotton Lightweight Long Robe: Finding robes that fit is always a challenge for me, and the sizing and color options available for this is outstanding! I recently ordered mine in a 3X and can’t wait to try it out for myself!
4 / Pacifica Wipe Out Oil Cleansing Face Wipes: By now most of you know that I only use clean skincare and makeup products and these Pacifica facial wipes are amazing. Pacifica has been a go-to clean brand for me for many years and their products are affordable, too! I use these at the end of the day to get rid of makeup and unwind.
5 / ILIA Limitless Lash Mascara: Ilia’s mascara is my all-time favorite clean makeup and I was so excited to find it on Amazon! This mascara lasts all day, doesn’t flake and is also easy to remove. I cannot speak more highly of a mascara, it’s just the best!
6 / Adidas Originals Women’s Sleek Super Sneaker: These Adidas have such a classic look and they remind me of Stan smith sneaks with a twist. They are often on super sale too!
7 / Adidas Originals Women’s Nizza Platform Sneaker: I originally purchased the Piazza sneaker from Nordstrom and they are the sneakers that I am wearing in the photo above (collage). I personally love the platform sneaker, and these remind me of Converse, but are so much more comfortable and perfect for wider feet. If you like the Converse style sneaker, then give these a try, they work so much better for me!
8 / The Drop Women’s Ines Chunky Rib Mock-Neck Sweater: This sweater reminds me of a Free People sweater I recently tried on, except it’s only a fraction of the cost. This sweater is from The Drop collection and comes in so many great colors. I personally love the balloon sleeves and think it’s perfect for fall.
9 / Rebecca Minkoff Women’s Rosie Sweatshirt: I was so shocked when I learned that Rebecca Minkoff has a little storefront through Amazon, and I got the cutest tie-dye long sleeve. This top has the perfect worn-in feel and a slight crop.
10 / The Drop Women’s Nia Leather Look Coated Stretch Nylon Legging: I have been looking for a pair of faux leather leggings forever. I’ve tried many pairs of Spanx, Good American and several other brands and nothing ever worked. However, these leggings are amazing! They definitely feel more like a fast-fashion purchase, but I was so excited to finally find a pair that fit so well.
11 / Ekouaer Women’s Nightgown: I never thought I would seek out nightgowns, but it’s 2020 and everything has gone out the window — I want is total comfort! This night gown is not only super-soft, it’s also incredibly stylish, too, and I may or may not have worn it as a duster.
12 / Rebecca Minkoff Women’s Convertible Mini Julian Backpack: More Rebecca Minkoff that I love! So many of us on team TME love her bags, and I think this mini Julian backpack is so cute!
13 / Essential Oxygen BR Certified Organic Brushing Rinse: This is the mouthwash that I use daily, and ever since COVID hit, it stopped being sold at Whole Foods. So now I have it on auto delivery! It’s both a great mouthwash and also whitens your teeth too!
14 / Amope Pedi Perfect Wet & Dry Foot File: I used to be a pedicure junkie; I would religiously go to the nail salon once a month for my mani-pedi. But when that stopped my feet suffered big time, and this was a recommendation from TikTok! I reluctantly ordered it, and am so happy that I did because it works wonders! My at-home pedicures feel salon-grade now!
15 / Asvivid Womens Turtleneck Long Sleeve Chunky Knit Pullover Sweater: Last but not least is another cute chunky sweater. I personally love the royal blue, and it comes in so many different colors too!
