    We did the digging and found some of their best private label products you can get a deal on right so you don't have to:

    1. A pack of 120 detergent pacs guaranteed to make laundry days a heckuva lot easier (and will leave your clothes smelling heavenly).

    Promising review: "The big container contains 120 count of detergent pacs. It is a very good amount and will last for a while at my home. The fresh scent smells fine and our clothes smell clean after laundry. My husband has sensitive skin and he is a little selective on the laundry detergent. Since I started using this detergent, I haven't heard any complaints from him. I think his skin has no problem with this detergent. The washing power of this detergent is good, I see all our clothes are all washed clean after laundry. I am happy with this detergent and I will continue buying it!" —Ezra

    Price: $15.99 (originally $19.99; available in packs of 70 and 120 and two scents)

    2. Or, a 96oz liquid laundry detergent concentrate that yields an impressive 128 loads — and smells just as good as the pacs.,

    Promising review: "I love this concentrated laundry detergent. It cleans just as well as the name brand I used to get, but lasts a whole lot longer. The little measuring cup that comes with the container is small to begin with, but you should see where the dosage level is for a normal load…way down at the bottom of the cup. That little amount of detergent provides plenty of suds and cleaning power. The clean linen fragrance is spot on, smells wonderful and doesn’t overpower. Every once in a while I find a generic product that tops name brand—Solimo concentrated liquid laundry detergent is one of them. " —Ladyfingers

    Price: $12.52 (originally $15.65; available in four scents)

    3. A two pound bag of duck dog treats Fido will be begging for over and over again.

    Promising review: "I want to share tastes I love with my dogs, who ravenously agree that richer, darker duck meat beats out chicken by a mile. Here Solimo dishes up an ample two pounds of luscious, unctuous duck meat jerky strips, augmented only by pea protein, glycerin, and salt. The strips are cut thin, enabling chewability for small to giant breed dogs. Consistently six inches long, they can be scissors-cut into bite-sized offerings for smaller hounds. Protein is an ample 50%, with moisture content a terrific 20% (they're pliable upon opening the bag, and remain so for weeks). While I usually wait for the Holidays to tear into duck, Solimo has empowering our dogs to feast on this perfect bird all year long." —The All-Seeing I

    Price: $15.03 (originally $18.79)

    4. A five-blade razor that comes with TWELVE (yes, 12) cartridge refills. At this price, it seems criminal.

    Promising review: "I've stooped to bad razors for too long. These razors are amazing. They feel great, shave last long, and the holder comes with! My legs thank you." —MaggieRue&Co

    Price: $13.04 (originally $16.30)

    5. Or, this five-blade motionsphere razor with SIXTEEN cartridge refills. The multi-axis pivot makes it perfect for shaving the contours of your face *without* cutting yourself.

    Promising review: "I’ve tried many razors over the years - Dollar Shave Club, Gillette, Harry’s and Kirkland. They all seem to give the same shave. This razor is no different. The hand is sturdier than the others and the shave is good. It comes with a ton of blades and they seem to hold up well. This is the best bang for your buck! Highly recommended." —Jordan Behrens

    Price: $14.39 (originally $17.99)

    6. And, a two-pack of two-in-one shave cream to use with your new razor. Reviewers love that it's unscented and doesn't dry their skin out.

    Promising review: "Yet another outstanding product from Solimo/Amazon. Perfect for shaving. Truly unscented. Good texture and cream like consistency which is very helpful shaving in the shower as it does not run off quickly with water while shaving. This is better than Gillette and other name brand products. Excellent value with a great shave while moisturizing. Excellent functional dispenser too. Highly recommended!" —iamtheoneoff

    Price: $7.24 (originally $9.05)

    7. A 40oz bag of Happy Belly trail mix filled with tart cranberries and assorted nuts — a.k.a., the perfect snack to take along with you on all your adventures you have planned this summer.

    The trail mix

    Promising review: "I have enjoyed along with family members all of the Happy Belly products. Don't expect to last if it is set out for a group of people! We aren't hikers but carrying a little bag when out shopping or waiting in a doctor's office is acceptable! Yum! Yum!" —D H Leschot

    Price: $19.29 (originally $24.11)

    8. Or, a six-pack of peanut granola bars if you're more "sweet and salty" than "tart and nutty".

    The granola bars

    Promising review: "These granola bars are amazing. Love the taste, the mixture of sweet and salty and the way they don't weigh me down afterwards. Great snack and something you can enjoy at the end of the day or as a boost in the middle of the day. Either way they are something I have been telling others about, and ordering extras to make sure I don't run out." —Cyrus Webb

    Price: $19.19 (originally $23.99)

    9. A six-pack of a mild formula body wash that won't irritate your skin or dry it out. In fact, it's so gentle, you can even use it to wash your face!

    reviewer photo of the body wash

    Promising review: "I got this for my mister but I ended up using it for myself. It smells really nice, almost like subtle flowers. It says it is made for men but I think it is good for both. It is not a man scent but it isn’t a feminine scent either. It lathers up nice and thick and cleanses the body gently. We have extremely hard water here on our farm so using bar soap is just out of the question. This body wash is much softer and doesn’t cause my skin to dry up and crack. It is a cost effective way to wash with." —Angelique

    Price: $17.76 (originally $22.33)

    10. Or, a four-pack of a body oil gel formulated with cocoa butter to be ultra-hydrating and leave your skin silky smooooooth.

    Promising review: "Very nice & similar to expensive cocoa butter infused oils. Great economical substitute for Vaseline Cocoa Butter gel. I use it for my skin and hair as a moisturizer. It has all the same ingredients but at a much more, budget friendly price." —Sista Kaye

    Price: $15.36 (originally $19.20)

    11. A three-pack of a grapefruit facial scrub with 2% salicylic acid to specifically help prevent the development of new pimples.

    Promising review: "I ordered this for my teenage son to use as he's been breaking out recently. I've noticed that it has helped shrink his pores and hasn't been as oily as he used to be prior to washing his face with this scrub. He likes the feel of the exfoliating beads. It has a pleasant scent, and we're glad it's not a strong one because he's allergic to any strong perfume-like scents. Overall, we're happy with this product and will purchase again when he's almost out. Great value for everyday use." —Kailey

    Price: $8.39 (originally $10.49)

    12. Or, a maximum-strength acne treatment made with 10% benzoyl peroxide to dig deep into your pores and stop acne at its source.

    Promising review: "Honestly with my acne nothing has ever worked, until I tried this. I only use it on the pimples not on the whole face as it dries a lot. If you have a pimple and you put this on, the next day it will be very dry. If you have sensitive skin I recommend you to use it once or twice a week only. But would absolutely recommend it. Wear sun protection and use it at night only." —Fernanda Escobar

    Price: $7 (originally $8.75)

    13. A four-pack of an ultra-strength lotion equipped with all the good stuff — vitamins C, E, and B5 — to hydrate your skin and lock in moisture.

    Promising review: "It’s a great moisturizer for when you get out of the shower and throughout the day. The scent is very light and fresh, almost like powder but I tend to like that. It’s not greasy and it’s 21 FL OZ which is way more bang for your buck than your average lotion." —Melissa Goodrum

    Price: $11.10 (originally $13.89)

    14. A bag of Sour Cream & Onion potato chips because, let's be real, they're nothing short of a pantry staple.

    Promising review: "Fear not because it's a good product. Flavor is not lacking because it's very very flavorful. That is the first thing I noticed. The chip portions are perfect, so it's not crumbs. Definitely more flavorful then other name brands but half the price." —Charles

    Price: $3.99 (originally $4.99)

    15. An eczema soothing cream that'll come to the rescue the next time you have a flare up. It's formulated with colloidal oatmeal to soothe the skin and leave it feeling moisturized.

    Promising review: "I have eczema in a couple of place all over my body i.e my shoulder's, back, and back of the thighs. The hardest hit is my face. My forehead, around and on my nose my cheeks and side of my eyebrows, eye area. The lotion had no smell that I could really distinguish. It was creamy and smooth. It absorbed quickly, No after burning or irritation. No itching. Also for ones who wear CPAP mask and worry if it will harm the plastic on the mask I had no ill effect to my mask." —Cora

    Price: $6.36 (originally $7.96)

    16. A pack of assorted flexible bandages designed to cushion your wound while still moving with you — which makes removing them *a lot* less painful!

    Promising review: "Good quality and stays on well! There’s 25 large ones, 35 medium, and 40 small bandages. The sizes are all on the back box description. It’s nice to have all these on stock! Never know when you’ll need them!" —Emma

    Price: $5.02 (originally $6.28)

    17. A six-pack of dandruff shampoo and conditioner that's pH-balanced to help control itching and flaking.

    The bottles of shampoo

    Promising review: "My boyfriend suffers from dandruff, pretty badly. He’s tried H&S and that dried his scalp out and ended up making his dandruff worse. I saw this on here and for the price decided if it doesn’t work it was super cheap but if it works it’s super cheap. He loves the product and the scent wasn’t bad either, didn’t smell like many other dandruff shampoos I’ve smelled before. Will definitely be repurchasing again!" —amy luther

    Price: $14.81 (originally $18.51)

    18. A flea and tick topical ointment you can use to protect your precious kitty from ALL of the usual suspects — including chewing lice.

    Promising review: "Glad we finally found and switched over to Amazon's Solimo - same active ingredients as the pricey name brand we normally get but saved more than just a few bucks. Same size box and droplet tubes as what we bought before-thanks Amazon!" —Res ipsa loquitur

    Price: $9.97 (originally $12.46)

    19. And, a canine flea and tick topical, because doggos deserve to be protected from the creepy-crawly things, too.

    Promising review: "Solimo offers great products at a much lower price. Instead of marking up the price for advertising, I was able to purchase this flea & tick treatment at roughly 1/3rd the cost of our standard brand. Keep an eye on the active ingredients, these ingredients are different for us but have done great and got rid of a few fleas on my Dachshund after a recent visit to the dog park." —Kevin Stuart Jr.

    Price: $11.37 (originally $14.21)

    20. A five pound jug of wildflower honey that'll be the ~bee's knees~ in your hot tea and baked goods.

    reviewer photo showing six bottles of honey

    Promising review: "For such a great price, I wasn’t sure how this would taste, so I started with a 2 lb. bottle (32 oz) and was pleasantly surprised! I regularly use honey in tea, sauces, with cheese and crackers, etc, so I go through this stuff fairly quickly. When it came time to replace it and I discovered the 5 lb bottle, it was a no brainer. Since I had so much honey, I ended up brewing some tasty mead with it!" —Debbie

    Price: $14.39 (originally $17.99)
