And a lot of them have something to do with tanning
It’s easy to spend way too much time on Amazon, searching for things you need and a lot of things you probably don’t need. We had a little chat with the team there and they shared what the best selling Amazon beauty products were between 2013-2016, with sales of these products spiking to a whopping 380% over that time.
Surprisingly enough, only one make-up product made the list. It seems like people are more obsessed with the sun that we thought, since more than half of the items are either sun creams (have a little scroll of our best sun cream round-up to see which of them made the cut) or fake tans. Oh, and an unexpected insect repellant working its way up the charts. The most popular women’s electric shaver also made an appearance, clocking in with a hefty 423 customer reviews.
Check out the full list of products below – we know we’re adding a couple to our wish list. Also keep an eye on their #nowitssummer campaign for more awesome deals for the holiday season…
Fake it till you make it with St Moriz's instant fake tan, which will have you looking sunkissed in no time. Since it comes as a mousse, it's a little easier to apply evenly with an applicator rather than spraying and hoping for the best.
This body oil is mainly geared towards keeping your skin hydrated, but its subtle jojoba and citronella scent does a fantastic job of repelling creepy crawlies too. If you're heading out somewhere tropical for the holidays, stash a bottle of this in your travel bag.
Sometimes your lashes need a little bit of help and this handy mascara from Maybelline is a popular beauty partner in crime. Swipe once for fluttery natural looking lashes, or stack coats for dramatic glam.
Be the bronzed Aussie beach babe you've always wanted to be. This product is an easy way to get a speedy tan in no time, plus its infusion of vitamin A and E will ensure your skin stays healthy and golden.
This super strength sunscreen by Australian brand SunSense does it all - it moisturises, brightens and most importantly protects your skin from the sun. (It also dries matte - exactly what you need on those sweaty, summer days!)
This sunscreen will take anything you throw at it - strong sunshine, the swimming pool, hours in the sun. Unscented and long lasting, the website claims that every use lasts a good ten hours.
This little gadget has a big following - it's the most popular women's electric shaver on Amazon.

It'll be interesting to see if these popular products rein queen for the few years as well, as tastes change and new products continue to steadily climb the charts.
