Happy birthday Amazon Prime! The online retail giant's next-day delivery membership scheme turned 10 this week and has transformed the way we shop in the UK, with a staggering third of the population now using the service.
It may be the go-to destination for hastily thrown-together fancy dress costumes and last-minute birthday gifts, but Amazon Prime is also good for a whole lot more. To mark the anniversary, Amazon revealed its top-selling products via Prime in the UK and the list provides a fascinating snapshot into British life, as reported by Retail Week.
Beauty aficionados won't be surprised to learn that Bio Oil made the cut, along with the GHD IV Styler. We also seem to be a nation into our oral hygiene, with an Oral B electric toothbrush and electric toothbrush replacement heads both featuring.
The country's top-selling culture picks bought via Amazon Prime were Adele's 25 album on CD, the party game Cards Against Humanity, fitness coach Joe Wicks's Lean In 15 book and Amazon's own Fire TV digital media player, Amazon Echo and the Amazon Echo dot. How many do you own?
