E-Comm: Useful Amazon Impulse Buys

E! has affiliate relationships, so we may get a commission if you purchase something through our links. Items are sold by the retailer, not E!. Prices are accurate as of publish time.

Impulse buys— been there, done that. Whether TikTok made you buy it, or you're aimlessly shopping on your phone from your bed at 3 AM, I fully understand that feeling of coming across a product that seems too good to be... and often is.

In particular, with the convenience of Prime shipping, Amazon has become my go-to place for spending way too much money on things I definitely don't need. Some of these purchases end up being questionable at best and utterly disappointing at worst. However, on the bright side, in my endless scrolling, I've found some surprisingly useful things that go above and beyond in their function. In other words, they're 110% worth clicking "Add to Cart" impulsively.

We've rounded up the best of those products, from wireless earbuds with over 222,700 5-star Amazon reviews to TikTok-viral cloud slippers that make you feel like you're walking on two pillows. These items are loved by Amazon reviewers, and we're sure you won't be left with that post-impulse buy regret. Rather, you'll soon be wondering how you ever lived without these products before.

So go ahead and treat yourself to some guilt-free retail therapy.

I typically wear these while streaming a show or YouTube anywhere from 2-4 hours 4-6 times per week. I can go WEEKS without having to charge them! The noise cancellation is no joke.. and if someone is talking to you while you have them in, you won't hear them at all. The case is very sleek and fits comfortably in my pocket all day.

The package contains over 100 covers that you can peel and stick over any annoying LED lights.

These stickers have 8,100+ 5-star Amazon reviews, with one shopper writing, "These LightDims are amazing. Most items now have indicator lights that are on all the time, and many of them are far brighter than I want them to be. These dim the light a lot without making it "too dim." We put them on a lot of things: the baby monitor, over the center console lights by the gear shift in the car (not dimmable like the rest of the interior lights in the car), and even on the LED bulb of our 5-year-old's nightlight so it wouldn't be as bright in his room at night."

According to one Amazon reviewer, "I was sick and my asthma was acting up. The doctor had recommended that I use one of these with lavender or eucalyptus oil. I love the soft white noise and put it on the setting where the lights change color. It's very relaxing, and running the heater at night usually dries out my skin, but not any longer. Great gift idea! Considering a second one for the living room!"

I saw this online for years and finally decided to give it a try. The only thing I'm mad about is how long it took for me to try it. Very easy to install and remove, with no tools necessary. I could hear my drain struggling and I was nervous it hadn't worked. Instead, I found all of the hair wrapped neatly around the device! And even better, the hair was so easily removed. Please, save yourself the plumber, the pipe cleaner, whatever, and get this!!"

Without exaggeration, this electric candle lighter, which has 20,500+ 5-star Amazon reveiws, is a gamechanger.
