I'm an Amazon Shopping Editor, and These Are the 10 Things I'm Buying This Month
As someone who spends a good chunk of my day — and credit card — on Amazon, I pretty much always have an ongoing cart of things I want to test. I'd say half of the items I choose to purchase are based on personal needs, while the other half are things that have been recommended to me, or I've been influenced to get. And not to toot my own horn here, but I'd say I'm a pretty good Amazon shopper, and I'm rarely disappointed in my purchases. (Please clap.)
My last bulk purchase prepared me for spring, and this time I'm not necessarily prepping for anything, but just attempting to enhance my quality of life with a few frilly additions. I mean that quite literally — this ruffled mini dress is on my list. So without further ado, here are 10 things that are sitting in my Amazon cart right now that I think you'll enjoy, too.
- Docolor Eyelash Comb, $5
- Elf Poreless Putty Primer, $8
- Kaasage Eyelash Curler with Pads, $10
- Blulu V Neck Cami Bralette, 4 Pack, $19-$24
- La Roche-Posay Double Repair Face Moisturizer, SPF 30, $20
- Dokotoo V Neck Ruffle Mini Dress, $31
- Moochi Cosmetic Makeup Organizer, $40 (Originally $42)
- Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Body Scrub, $42
- Bandier x Sincerely Jules The Rue Crossover Leggings, $78
- Coach Ulla Slide, $85
La Roche-Posay Double Repair Face Moisturizer
This is one of the items I'm most excited about getting. I've been meaning to replace my morning moisturizer, and I have high hopes that this restorative one from La Roche-Posay will become my new skincare staple. Over 10,400 Amazon shoppers totally swear by it and call it a "miracle" for a myriad of skin concerns, whether you have wrinkles, dry and irritated skin, large pores, or even rosacea. Most importantly, it has SPF 30, and was named one of the best sunscreens by the EWG this year.

Blulu V Neck Cami Bralette
Like many others, the pandemic has inspired me to go braless and never turn back. Instead, I've turned to comfy bralettes, which I actually love to wear around the house. When I came across these v-neck bralettes, I immediately added them to my cart for several reasons: They have removable padding, thin cami straps (which are useful under dresses), come in cute colors, and last but not least — you're getting four for $19. Sold.

Docolor Eyelash Comb
This is probably one of my weirder purchases, but stick with me here. I saw someone raving about this $5 eyelash comb on Facebook and was mind blown that it exists, simply because I wish I knew about it sooner. I'm not that great at applying mascara, and my eyelashes tend to stick together, so I'm planning on using this both pre- and post-application. Here's to hoping it will make the process less frustrating.

Kaasage Eyelash Curler
Speaking of eyelashes, I've recently come to the realization I could probably benefit from an eyelash curler. I've always been a little afraid of them because… it's a clamp near your eyeball? But I'm willing to give this ergonomic one from Kasaage a try for a "really nice curl and lift," as one shopper put it.

Coach Ulla Slide
If I text or Slack you daily (hi Tess!), I've probably talked to you about Coach's new pillow slides. I can't really describe why I'm so obsessed with them, but I just think they're so cute. I love that they match the TikTok viral Pillow Tabby bag (but I don't love that they're making me want that bag even more). They're sporty but stylish, and I'm excited to live in them this summer. I can't decide if I want the white or pink, but I'm leaning towards white at the moment.

Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Body Scrub
I'm a huge fan of Sol de Janeiro's Bum Bum line, and this is honestly my favorite body scrub. It's super gritty but still gentle, and smells exactly like the body cream. If you don't know what that smells like, it's a delectable swirl of caramel, almond, vanilla, and sandalwood. I've ran out, so I'm restocking for the summer since I especially love to use it to exfoliate my legs before shaving.

Dokotoo V Neck Ruffle Mini Dress
Amazon featured this pretty mini dress in its summer style guide, and you don't have to convince me twice to buy it. I love how feminine and delicate the Dokotoo dress looks, and that it has a cute open back design. The consensus amongst shoppers is that it's boutique-quality, super flattering, and actually really comfortable.

Elf Poreless Putty Primer
My makeup-obsessed friend recommended Elf's putty primer to me when I asked her what primer I should get. I'm more of a BB-cream-and-go kind of gal, but recently have been wanting to play around with properly putting makeup on. I actually didn't even realize TikTok is obsessed with this primer, as well as over 10,600 Amazon shoppers. I feel pretty good putting my trust in my BFF and the internet here, and I'm intrigued to see how it works for my oily skin.

Moochi Cosmetic Makeup Organizer
My skincare and makeup collection has been getting out of control recently. I desperately need a new organizer for it all in my bathroom, and this Moochi cosmetic organizer is just what I'm looking for. I like that it's all one piece (as opposed to those stackable acrylic organizers) and has a covered top to protect my products from dust. It has good reviews, too — customers say it looks beautiful and is a good size.

Bandier x Sincerely Jules Crossover Leggings
And finally, I can't stop ogling these cross-waist leggings. Influencer Julie Sariñana of Sincerely Jules recently launched an athleisure collection with Bandier, and it's full of pretty much every spring trend you can think of. Ruffles, tie-dye, gingham, florals, pastels — it's all there. I love the color of these leggings, and am pretty obsessed with the fact that the waist has a floral design.
