If you have ever added or discarded items in your Amazon cart based on reviews, you’re not alone (lovely to meet you, too). Amazon reviewers tend to take their responsibility very seriously and aren’t afraid to leave scathing, honest reviews for something as simple as a 60-pack of scrunchies or as complex as toilet seat covers (thank you, Reddit).
So when they do decide to leave love letters or 5-star reviews for certain items, we instantly have to add it to our radar, because you know they’ll be good. Since the bathroom is a universally intimate place with a constant need for streamlining, we decided to turn to the reviewers to lead us to the very best finds. From storage hacks to simple design solutions to elevate your everyday bathroom experience, here are six dearly loved finds Amazon reviewers swear by.
