We only recommend products we love and that we think you will, too. We may receive a portion of sales from products purchased from this article, which was written by our Commerce team.

I’m not the type of person who likes to take advice. If my friends recommend something to me, there’s a 50/50 chance I’ll actually look it up — and most of the time I just pretend to know what they’re talking about. The only exception is if the item in question is something that keeps selling out. If an item is always out of stock, there’s a good chance that it’s totally worth the price, or at least really effing cool.

But what do I mean by “effing cool?” A simple glance at the list I’ve compiled below will tell you all you need to know, as it’s chock-full of products that people actually want. From easy-to-install bidets to soothing shampoo brushes, it’s no surprise that each item on this list is almost always sold out — especially when they all have such high reviews. Frankly, today is one of the few times I’ve seen that shampoo brush in stock. Make sure to add it to your cart now if you want to try it out because you might not get another chance before it sells out.
