Your 12 Favorite Amazon Finds of 2022

As we start to wrap up 2022 (can you believe it?) I like sharing YOUR favorite purchases of the year.

Because we share a similar style perspective, it’s safe to say that these items, loved most by our community are the best of the best of my recommendations and a pretty easy bet that if you don’t already have them, you’ll enjoy them too. 

This list has a mix of everything, including casual fashion, unbelievably affordable, high-quality jewelry and beauty buys.

And nothing is over $50, in fact, most fall under $20. 

Your 12 Favorite Amazon Finds of 2022

Best finds from Amazon in 2022


Gold Hoops

gold hoops


Gold Hoops, $14 

These gold hoops are the best selling, most-loved, and highly-rated item from Amazon in 2022 and they are only $14.

If you are looking for a lightweight, chic and comfortable everyday pair, I can’t recommend these enough. 

And if your ears are sensitive like mine, you won’t even notice these. 

Available in yellow, rose or white gold-plated in four sizes. My daily pair is the smallest at 20MM.

Long Sleeve Turtleneck

black Long Sleeve Turtleneck

Long Sleeve Turtleneck, $14 

If you are turtleneck fan, like me, this is for you.

First, it’s available in over 20 colors, in sizes XS – 6X.

You can wear it as a stand alone layer or under a jacket or blazer. The fit is wonderful, it’s not skin tight, and not over sized. And it washes well. 

I have it in several colors including the black, which hasn’t faded and the ivory, which isn’t see-through. 

Readers who ordered it have been raving about it. 

Anti-Frizz Spray


Wow anti-frizz spray

Anti-Frizz Spray, $27 

We are not alone in our affection for this product. 

The WOW Dream Coat Anti-Frizz Spray has a cult-like following, with almost 50,000 FIVE STAR reviews on Amazon. 

Use as directed, and you’ll have smooth as glass hair through three shampoos regardless of the weather.

Striped Polo Sweater

black and white striped polo sweater

Striped Polo Sweater, $40 

This striped polo happens to be one of my favorite personal buys of the year, so I was delighted to see it on our top sellers list. I think it’s so fun that we are all enjoying the same things. 

It’s soft and comfortable, also washes well, and looks cute with simple leggings or jeans. 

Available in several color combinations in XS -XL


Silk Scarf

patterned silk scarf

Silk Scarf, $11

This little scarf is only $11.

Thanks to its pretty color combination, it goes with almost any neutral, looks high end and adds the perfect pop of print to an otherwise simple outfit. 

And I love seeing how readers are styling it, around their neck or tied on their handbag. 

Ice Roller

Ice Roller, $10 

Coming in at number six on our list is this slim ice roller.

Admittedly, I have a lot of beauty gadgets, but by far, this $10 roller that I keep in my freezer is my favorite.

If you suffer from allergies or headaches or are just an exhausted working mom in her forties, this works wonders for a puffy, tired, sore face.

Vitamin C SerumVichy Vitamin C Serum

Vitamin C Serum, $28.50 

Vitamin C Serum is a game-changing, skincare essential, and some are crazy expensive. 

But the Vichy LIFTACTIV Vitamin C Brightening Skin Corrector hits all the right marks. 

It’s effective, with over 10,000 FIVE STAR reviews on Amazon alone, affordable at under $30 and easy to use. 

Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Liquid Salicylic Acid Exfoliant

Paula's Choice 2% liquid salicylic acid exfoliant

Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Liquid Salicylic Acid Exfoliant, $12 

The Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Liquid Salicylic Acid Exfoliant is a product I discovered thanks to our readers recommendation, supported by the over 70,000 positive reviews on Amazon

I’ve tried other products, all with an extra zero on the price tag, and nothing is as effective. 

So thank you 😉 

Fleece Lined Leggings

black fleece lined leggings

Fleece Lined Leggings, $31 

These Fleece Lined Leggings, first featured only a few weeks ago, have been wildly popular. 

So if you hate being cold, like me, yet find yourself always cold, like me, these are for you. 

Available in several colors, with or without pockets (I buy the ones with pockets) in XS – 3X. Highly, highly recommend going into the winter. 

Cable Wire Bangle

Cable wire bangle

Cable Wire Bangle, $15 

Rounding out our top 10 is this $15 bangle, inspired by David Yurman. 

I wear this every day in my bracelet stack. 

And it’s a fun piece for me because, my friends know what I do for a living, but I never talk about it, ever.

It’s just too weird of a job to have to explain. 

But when this bangle started showing up on their wrists, I finally asked where they got it, and they were like, “You! Where do you think?” lol.

CZ Bangle

gold CZ bangle

CZ Bangle, $16 

Another bracelet option that only missed the top ten by one is this bangle that mimics the Cartier love braclet, but for only $16. 

And I’m shocked that for under $20, how well this has held up. It gets daily use and all that comes with that, and it still looks new.  

Ruffle Knit Sweater

green ruffle knit sweater

Ruffle Knit Sweater, $43 

Finally, one of our latest recommendations made our top 12 immediately. 

This ruffle knit sweater is a lovely option if you want dressed-up casual. Wear this with jeans and boots, like I did here, and you’re perfectly polished for your day. 

Available in over a dozen colors, in Small – X-Large.

Love the Ruffle Green Sweater, the gold hoops & the fleece leggings are to die for! I tried the striped sweater but even the small doesn't fit a 5" frame and sweaters don't alter well! HaHa.

Thank you for your recommendations!

I have at least half of these :) You have helped me refine my personal style over these last years - the gold hoops and ruffle sweater are two of my favorite pieces. And that WOW spray really is magic, especially during our humid NC summers. Thanks for all the work you put into this website; it's the first one I visit with my morning coffee. You are a treasure!

@Sandra Shaffer, It is a soft white, not stark bright white and definitely not ivory.
