The Best Products On Amazon Under $20

Sometimes the best things are the cheapest.

If you're an Amazon addict like me, you probably know you don't actually have to spend a ton of money to bag some amazing finds.

In fact, some of the best products on Amazon this year are under twenty dollars. I'm talking things from every category, from beauty to kitchen to novelty and everything in between.

I do my best shopping when I'm looking for bargains, and thankfully, I can find a ton of them on Amazon. There are even some products that legitimately changed my life once I found them and worked them into my routine (I know it sounds like an exaggeration, but it's true!).

I've found things that drastically improve your quality of life, like a charcoal air purifier, a tile scrubber, and a hand-held tool set. I've unearthed beauty products that are just as good as super expensive ones — toners and scrubs that don't break the bank.

I've even found a few fun novelty products under twenty dollars that are great to give out as gifts, like a Sriracha keychain or Wine Wipes for your teeth.

Amazon is my favorite place to browse because of the variety of things that are offered. It's also my favorite because I've found so many helpful products under twenty bucks that I use on a day-to-day basis.

It really is your one-stop shop for just about anything.

1. Activated Bamboo Air Purifying Bag

I live in a house with six girls. We also have a cat, and his litter box is kept in a room where the windows are painted shut, so I stuck one of these in there. My closet is in an unventilated area behind the water heater, and it's super musty in there, so I stuck one in there, too. I can honestly say my house has never smelled fresher. These bags are filled with charcoal, which absorbs odor and purifies air, so your house smells great all the time!

2. Household Tool Set

Ever since moving into my house, I can't tell you how many times I've bugged my roommate about using her tool set. I always need a hammer or a screw driver for some reason. This nine-piece set is less than 10 dollars and it comes with everything you need for a DIY project or home improvement venture.

Household Hand Tools, $7.09, Amazon

3. Wearable Nail Polish Holder

Finally! A way to paint my nails while sitting on my bed. Instead of awkwardly holding your nail polish bottle in between your knees while sitting on your bed, slip this silicone holder on your hand. Your polish bottle will fit perfectly and you'll be on your way to a carefree manicure in no time.

4. Travel Foot Rest And Sleep Mask Set

I travel a lot, and I love when my seat has a foot rest. Sadly, that's not always the case. So instead, I might just pick up this foot rest/sleep mask set so I can get some shut eye in comfort no matter where I am. The foot rest is super lightweight and portable and connects to headrests with ease.

Airplane Foot Hammock, $14.95, Amazon

5. Himalayan Salt Body Scrub

A good body scrub is everything when your skin is dry. This one is made with all-natural ingredients like pink Himalayan salt and jojoba oil. Use it to increase circulation, lower blood pressure, remove dead skin, improve texture, and even reduce the appearance of acne. You'll be left with glowing skin all over!

ArtNaturals Himalayan Salt Body Scrub, $12.95, Amazon

6. Wine Wipes

Drinking red wine is something my boyfriend and I love to do, and you'd know that if you'd ever had a conversation with us after a few glasses. Sadly, both of us get red teeth after sipping on our favorite blends. Thankfully, I recently purchased these wine wipes, and they're the best. All we have to do is take a wipe and swipe it across our teeth. Just like that, red stains no more

Wine Wipes, $8.75, Amazon

7. Spiral Hair Ties

There's nothing worse than getting a hair tie stuck in your ponytail. I can't even tell you how many times I've nearly pulled out a clump of hair trying to get one out. Now, I use these phone card hair ties. They're great because the smooth plastic prevents tangles and keeps hair from breaking. They also last a lot longer than regular hair ties. Here's a pro tip for you: If they get too stretched out, just pop them into some boiling water and watch as they shrink back to their normal size.

Kitsch Spiral Hair Ties, $10.00, Amazon


8. Witch Hazel

If you suffer from acne, oily skin, or severely dry skin, you should try Witch Hazel. It's an all-natural product that soothes skin, keeps breakouts at bay, and slows oil production. One user said she's been using it for six years and "it's the best thing I have ever done for my skin." 

Thayers Alcohol-free Rose Petal Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera, $10.95, Amazon

9. Handheld Massage Tool

If you suffer from bad back pain, relieving it on your own can be a massive pain. This tool is great because it applies pressure to your lower and upper back to help get rid of pain. It's also really lightweight so you can even travel with it.

Handheld Massage Tool, $19.99, Amazon

10. Sriracha Keychains

I've come across so many people who travel with their own hot sauce. If you're like them and want to make sure your food always has a kick, these Sriracha keychains are perfect for you. Simply fill them up with the sauce, attach it to your keychain, and enjoy flavored food wherever you go. They're even TSA Friendly so you can bring them on the plane with you.

Sriracha Keychain Combo Pack, $14.23, Amazon

11. Sink Suction Corner Shelf

Living in a house with a ton of people can be hard, especially when it comes to keeping the kitchen clean. There are so many times I go to wash the dishes and find a soggy sponge sitting in the sink. This little suction cup corner shelf completely eliminates that. It attaches to the corner of your sink and is the perfect resting space for your sponges. Users agree "it keeps everything organized and out of the way."

Tloowy Kitchen Gadget Organizer Sink Suction Corner Shelf, $3.29, Amazon

12. Tile Scrub Brush

I saw this on Amazon and was like, "Oh my god, I need this immediately." This is one of those things you didn't know you needed until you became an adult. This scrub brush is perfect for cleaning grout in your bathtub or shower. It'll get right in there and scrub away the grime and mold. It's also super easy to clean. One buyer even dubbed it the "best scrubber on the market."

13. Reusable Mesh Bag

I have one of these and I use it for everything. I go to the gym with it, I grocery shop with it, I use it as a beach bag, and sometimes I even use it to transport laundry. Not only is it eco-friendly, but it's strong and can hold up to 40 pounds. Plus, it's lightweight and packable, making it perfect for travel! These are actually the best.

14. Velcro Magnetic Screen Door Mesh

I live in a house with a beautiful garden, and we have a party or two in the summertime. Unfortunately, our backdoor is a pain because there's no screen door. If we leave it open, we get flies and mosquitos inside. We've even had a squirrel stroll in like he owned the place. Needless to say, I'm adding this magnetic screen door to my shopping list. After you attach it to your door, you can walk through it and it will automatically close after you. Sounds like our monthly BBQs just got a whole lot better.

Velcro Magnetic Screen Door Mesh, From $18.86, Amazon

15. Cutting Boards

Prepping food just got a lot easier with these color-coded, labeled cutting boards. Instead of washing your cutting board in the middle of cooking because you need to cut meat, use this set. It's less than twenty bucks for four boards and will keep your food prep situation safe. It comes with a unique board for fish, meat, veggies, and chicken. One user said, "for the home chef or just everyday cook, they're great."

Resort Chef Cutting Boards for Kitchen, $16.88, Amazon

16. Stretch Out Strap

Take your exercise on the go with this amazing little strap. It's called the Stretch Out Strap, complete with an information card with exercises and stretches you can do on your own. After using it for a few weeks you'll definitely start to feel more flexible. Plus, it's small enough to take wherever you go, whether that's to the gym or on your next trip abroad.

OPTP The Original Stretch Out Strap, $15.95, Amazon

17. Single Serve Coffee Brew Buddy

If you're a coffee drinker but hate wasting a full pot, this coffee lid is for you. It brews a single cup of coffee just the way you like it. Its mesh filter can be used with your favorite coffee and the lid fits on most cups and mugs! 

Primula Single Serve Coffee Brew Buddy, $7.54, Amazon

18. Makeup Brush Cleaning Mats

I love cleaning my makeup brushes. It's another one of those weird little things I find oddly satisfying. I always use a silicone mat like this because it gets deep into the bristles and thoroughly removes makeup from the brush. Just set it in your sink, squeeze on a little shampoo or brush cleaner, and start swirling your brushes around until the water starts to run clear.

Brush Cleaning Mats, $6.59, Amazon

19. Clear Toiletry Cases

Traveling is pretty much my full-time job, so I'm constantly packing and unpacking. I don't like to unpack toiletries, so I invested in some good plastic cases. These are TSA-approved and fit your essentials. This purchase comes with two cases so you can keep all of your travel-size products organized, even when you're not on the road.

2 Pack of Lermende Clear Toiletry Bags, $11.99, Amazon
