The Best $10 I’ve Spent On Amazon

April 20, 2022

By:

Team LIY

Let’s be real, we’ve spent $10 on Amazon a time or two [or two hundred]. And the more we started talking about it, some of those quick $10 purchases have actually been our all-time favorite Amazon purchases. So rather than keep these secret $10 and under items to ourselves, we’re sharing them with you so they can become your favorite $10 purchases too!

PS Don’t forget to join our exclusive Amazon Facebook Group full of daily deals and all of our best Amazon finds!

Erin’s Favorite $10 Purchases

Real Simple Magazine One Year Subscription

Real Simple Magazine One Year Subscription

I still can’t believe I can get an entire year’s worth of enjoyment for less than $10. This Real Simple magazine subscription has been one of my favorite treats I’ve ever given myself! If you’re looking for any magazine, check here for crazy good deals!

Phone Case With Built-In Wallet

Phone Case With Built-In Wallet

This is hands down the most used Amazon I’ve purchased, ever. I have used this phone case for a year or two and have no plans of ever changing to something else. I love that it stores 3 cards so that everything I need is with me at all times! The slider stays shut and I’ve never had a problem with a card falling out. Once you get used to this style of phone wallet, you will never want to go back! 

Tinkle Facial Razors

Tinkle Facial Razors

Sorry peach fuzz and other unwanted hairs, you’re not welcome here. These face razors are my saving grace in between dermaplane facials. These shave off your unwanted hair [also great for eyebrows!] with ease and it makes for the smoothest skin ever! 31,000 reviews can’t be wrong!

L’Oreal Root Cover Up

L’Oreal Root Cover Up

Last but not least, my other saving grace – this root cover up spray for my many [many] grays! It’s amazing how easily it covers up those pesky things. Thanks to this product, I can go longer between my hair appointments and know that I’ll be covered during those extra weeks! Simply spray and watch it work its magic!

Steph’s Favorite $10 Purchases

Press On Nails

Press On Nails

Press On Nails are my go to these days, and I love adding them to cart when I’m already placing an Amazon order!

Set of Pairing Knives

Set of Pairing Knives

I love these knives because they work great, are a great price and come with a sleeve so they’re easy to pack with my apple in my lunch.

Macrame Wall Hanging

Macrame Wall Hanging

I added this small wall hanging to our basement game room and love the simple, elegant touch it adds!

Hannah’s Favorite $10 Purchases

Meat Masher

Meat Masher

I never knew I could love a kitchen tool so much, especially to mash meat [lol]! But here I am, convinced that this Meat Masher grinds up ground beef and pork so fast and makes the cooking process so much faster/easier! 

Seche Vite Fast Drying Top Coat

Seche Vite Fast Drying Top Coat

The BEST top coat I’ve ever used! I’m not kidding you when I say this dries in seconds, gives you a great manicure that stays and the price is even better!! If you’re looking to ditch the nail salon and do it at home, highly recommend this!

Reusable Makeup Pads

Reusable Makeup Pads

I’ve been in desperate need of wipes to use to apply toner, makeup or carefully remove eye makeup and these are hands down SO good! I love that they’re reusable, and come with a machine washable bag to use!

Hempz Travel Lotion

Hempz Travel Lotion

I wish you could smell this lotion through the screen! It smells so, so good!! I have the larger size but hate packing it when I travel so this little guy has been going with me everywhere! It not only smells good but it makes my hands so soft!!

Claire’s Favorite $10 Purchases

Electric Lighter

Electric Lighter

Meet the item you never knew you needed! You’re probably thinking, “Why would I need an electric candle lighter?”, but once you’ll try it you’ll see why! This baby is rechargeable, portable, and under $10! 

Tweezer Set

Tweezer Set

If you need to replace your tweezers, need more than one pair, or somehow end up misplacing yours frequently [hi, me!] this set of 4 is amazing! They work great and are less than $10. #AddtoCart

Claw Clips

Claw Clips

Claw Clips are my jam! These are easily my most-used Amazon purchase of all time, as I wear them every. single. day. I love that they don’t damage my hair and they don’t leave awkward bumps like some hair ties do. Working from home, running errands, lake days, washing my face at night – chances are, I’ve got a claw clip goin’ on.

Lauren’s Favorite $10 Purchases

GABA Pills

GABA Pills

I was introduced to GABA by my massage therapist during a stressful time in my work life, and they quickly became known as my “chill pills.” During instances where I would have otherwise felt overwhelmed or in instances where I could start to feel the anxiety and stress taking over, if I’d simply take a GABA pill I would noticed a much calmer, much more relaxed Lauren!

Body Glide Anti-Chafing Stick

Body Glide Anti-Chafing Stick

Friends, I’m a sweater. And in the summertime, my thighs stick together when it’s hot, no questions about it, no secrets here. We’re all friends right? This anti-chafing balm goes on like a deodorant [for your inner thighs, or wherever you need it], and chafing becomes a thing of the past! I love this especially for days where I’m wearing dresses, skirts, or athletic shorts!

6-Pack Thongs

6-Pack Thongs

55,000+ reviews can’t be wrong right? Nothing fancy here, but 6-pack of thongs for under $10, in your classic cotton?

Sun Bum SPF Lip Balm

Sun Bum SPF Lip Balm

Friends, no one wants burnt lips in the summertime. Not you, and not anyone else [no wants to see the peeling and cracking!]. I love Sun Bum products, and their SPF lip balms are perfect for days at the beach and everyday wear! And they come in great flavors too!

Katy’s Favorite $10 Purchases

Sky High Mascara

Sky High Mascara

I have a love affair with this mascara and for under $10 the price is right!

Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Powder Makeup

Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Powder Makeup

Powder under $4 that you will want to buy again and again! I wear the translucent and love it! I feel like it hides shine and really blurs my pores.

Natural Cleaning Spray

Natural Cleaning Spray

As mentioned above, I’m trying to steer clear of any harsh chemicals! I switched over to this natural all purpose cleaner and am loving it! It has a nice, clean scent and gets the job done 🙂 Bonus, it comes in a two pack!

Fanola No Yellow Shampoo

Fanola No Yellow Shampoo

I used to think my hair “faded” a month or so after highlights but through the years I’ve realized it just gets brassy pretty quickly! I’ve been loving this purple shampoo because it doesn’t give me that gray or silver look but tones the yellows out! I use it between my normal shampoo and conditioner and leave it on for 3-4 minutes! For under $10, I will take a case of this please.

Macy’s Favorite $10 Purchases

Ultimate Blending Brush

Ultimate Blending Brush

I use this blending brush every single day. I love it! It’s firm enough to blend well but gentle on skin at the same time. AND it’s under $5!

Zulay Frother

Zulay Frother

Takin’ my coffee to the next level with this handy gadget! Available in several colors.

Satin Pillowcase

Satin Pillowcase

I had been curious about using satin pillowcases for a long time and bought this under $10 set on Amazon! From what I’ve learned over the years, they are supposed to help fight hair frizz and breakage while you sleep, and this set has over 230,000 reviews!

This is my go-to chapstick!

While the CDC may be recommending social distancing [thanks, Coronavirus], the calendar isn’t paying attention, and holidays aren’t changing their dates!
