Some of our favorite things start off as a recommendation from a friend. We rely on those in the know to give us the scoop on what really works. Now, imagine you had access to the opinions of thousands of friends from all different walks of life — if that many people rally behind something, there's no way it's a dud. That's where Amazon reviewers come in. They know how to differentiate something gimmicky from something great. Right now they're loving a slew of cult-favorite summer finds. You will too.
