I am known for leaving clutter wherever I go, a behavior that extends to my bathroom vanity. On any given day, there are bottles of perfume, dry shampoo, and face serum scattered between tubes of concealer, mascara, and lipstick. My makeshift beauty counter is so wildly disorganized that I've started stockpiling beauty products in the cabinets below the sink in an effort to clear some of the offending mess. But it's all in vain, for the next time I finish getting ready for work, dinner, or what have you, I look down to see another monolithic mess waiting for me.
Consequently, I've come to the realization that I'm in dire need of a countertop organizer. The irony in all of this is that I've been researching the best organizers for weeks, and now I have the details on the best-selling one on Amazon. According to PopSugar, this organizer has over 700 reviews, 70% of which are five stars. Oh, and it's only $19.
This organizer has six adjustable layers, meaning you can decide the overall height and design. (That's helpful considering my collection of beauty products ranges from mini lipstick bullets to giant jars of coconut oil and micellar water.) The whole unit swivels around a base, so you can easily turn it 360 degrees to find the product you're looking for. As for actual storage capacity, it succeeds in that area too since it fits roughly 30 makeup brushes and 20 bottles of skincare.
The part I like best is that it's plastic and easy to disassemble and clean. After all, what's the point of washing your brushes if you're just putting them back into a dirty container?
Apparently, Amazon users can't get enough of it. One customer wrote, "This is fantastic! I like trying different face masks and washes and my collection has grown a bit large. This has been wonderful at allowing me to organize all my beauty stuff and still keep it accessible. It looks really nice and was very easy to put together. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to organize their bathroom!" Another writes, "Love it! It's super easy to assemble, it saves space under my bathroom drawer with my makeup, lotions and makeup products. I bought 2 of the Jerrybox makeup organizers. They really help keep under my bathroom sink drawer looking organized and clutter-free!" Yep, I'm sold.
