The goods that we buy on a fleeting basis may not ultimately wind up on our monthly most wanted list, but that doesn’t mean they’re not worthy of their own shopping spotlight. Welcome to our newest series that details just that: peeling back a more of-the-moment curtain on the top weird to wonderful items that people purchased this week.
Each of the products ahead was anonymously sourced from both top-performing R29 stories as well as shopping data that details the most current bestsellers. This means that everything you’ll find featured — from the 40% off faux-leather leggings to the miracle hair-strengthing treatments — is a freshly baked slice of
what’s trending in virtual carts across the web at this very moment. Scroll on to see what else is on the menu (swoon warning: it involves a pink hoodie that was once worn by Timothée Chalamet).
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
Satin Face Mask
Non-medical satin face masks are trending for fall — and after being featured last week as part of Pantone’s biggest fall color trend,
Almond Oil, this handmade in the U.K style has skyrocketed to the tops of virtual carts across the internet.
“Excellent in every respect. They were more than happy to make me a larger mask, great about my questions, and dispatch was so fast I wondered how they had time to make the mask. The mask is by far the most comfortable one I have worn. The lining is very smooth and gentle so it doesn’t abrade the nose. The fabric is thick, so it provides effective protection and also maintains its shape (which makes it easier to breathe–it doesn’t collapse in on the mouth and nostrils). It’s also very flattering. The skin tones don’t interfere with clothing colors. When I need a new mask, I will be coming back!” one very pleased Etsy customer raves.

Search for this all-natural artisan goat-milk-based skincare line is up a whopping 1000% this week as shoppers rushed to cart its new probiotic skincare line. Although the value-bundled
Clinically Kind Skincare Kit is temporarily sold out on the brand’s site as well as on Ulta, you can still nab the bestselling goods that promise “effective, safe, & clean for every skin type so you can cultivate beautiful skin that blooms with glorious, luminous life” in one-off form — like this here soothing and top-rated Milk Wash Exfoliating Jelly Cleanser.

Timothée Chalamet Hoodie
This may be old news, but shoppers are currently starting to cart up
Glossier’s merch hoodie that was iconically donned by everyone’s favorite heartthrob, Timothée Chalamet, about eight months ago (according to this Reddit thread). We’re guessing the resurgence has to do with stocking up on trendy-cozy essentials for the upcoming fall season.
As reviewers state: “I bought this because of my obsession with Timothée Chalamet and it’s actually really nice I recommend.”; “This hoodie is very cute, but I bought it for the sole purpose of matching with Timothèe :)”; “I LOVE HOW EVERYONE IS BUYING THIS BC OF TIMOTHÉE.”

Pumpkin Mini Waffle Maker
Fall is in the air, can you smell it? If so, then it probably smells like mini pumpkin waffles fresh out of this top-shopped (and reviewed) $12 DASH gadget that’s currently catching cart fire this week.
The small-space friendly machine is already beloved by customers, with reviews ranging from “This waffle maker is so cute! I love it! I’ve made waffles, eggs, cookies and brownies with it! It’s amazing!” to “The pumpkin waffle maker you never knew you wanted.” and “As small as this little iron is – it presents perfectly shaped and sized waffles! Very affordable and works great!”

Kosas New Mascara
The clean-beauty cult-favorite just dbeuted its newest product: a volumizing mascara that toes the line between a nourishing serum. Our Beauty writer swiped it onto her lashes IRL (

Faux Leather Leggings
Fall is about to be filled with faux-leather legging clad work-from-homers as sleek pairs (like this on-sale Nordy Anniversary Sale style) are scooped up by the dozens.
One shopper sings, “These leggings are great! I own the Spanx faux leather leggings, which I also love, but these have more of a leather look to them. They fit true to size. I normally wear a size 6-8 and I got a medium.” and “Great legging, fits perfect and looks expensive. Very good value for the price. Will look awesome with a nice sweater and give any outfit an upgrade instead of ordinary leggings.”

Hair Bonding Treatment
Opalex just debuted it’s newest professional-inspired, intensive bond-building hair treatment in this limited edition Sephora duo — and on top of being a top-carted priming, deep-repairing, strengthening, and protective product that shoppers can’t stop carting, it also boasts a seal of approval from one of our very own who tried it IRL.
“From No. 0 to No. 7, Olaplex products can be used on all hair types and textures. Hair that is significantly damaged will see more dramatic results with No. 0, but if your lengths just look a little dull or feel a bit dry, it’s definitely worth a try. At the moment, Olaplex No. 0 is available in a limited-edition kit with the No. 3 Hair Perfector, but you might be required to purchase them separately in the future. One thing is for certain: I’ll be shelving my current hair mask treatment for a helping of this pre-wash. It really does work,”
our very own R29 tester approves.

Since fall is going to look decidedly different this year, shoppers are hanging up their usual black booties in exchange for carting up new pairs of comfier all-terrain hiking boots that will take them from home to street and trail — and this bestselling, waterproof-suede style from Columbia is ready to do so in one fell (and trendy) swoop.
One enthusiastic reviewer raves, “I am SO happy with these hiking boots! I bought them last-minute before a hiking trip based on the good reviews, and I’m so glad I did! I was only able to wear them around the house for a couple of days to break them in, but they honestly didn’t even need it. They were super comfy to wear for eight days of hiking—no blisters, and I loved that I could also slip them on without lacing them up fully in the mornings. I had a little tenderness around my shins where the boots hit at first, but that went away quickly. After reading reviews, measuring my foot, and looking at the Columbia size chart, I ended up sizing up a half size since I wanted to be able to wear a thicker sock, and that was perfect. I typically wear a 9, but 9.5 is a great fit no matter what sock I wear. My feet are on the narrow side, but that wasn’t an issue at all. Overall, very happy with these, and I know I’ll have them for a long time. Definitely recommended!!”

Toppik Hair Building Fibers
More trending hair-strengthening treatments of the week: Toppik. The shopping search is up for this brand’s restorative treatments that increase volume and vitality in thinning or fine strands. Its star product? A bottle of something called “Hair Building Fibers” that consists of a keratin-based formula that “bonds hair-thickening fibers to each strand delivering a natural, fuller look.”
“I am in my 30s and have had increasingly thinning hair for the last 10 years. With a few sprays, this powder can easily add density to your hair almost instantly. It won’t reshape your hairline with a natural look, but will definitely fill it in nicely. Very discreet. I recommend buying the spray applicator for proper application,” one reviewer writes.

Silicone Face Scrubber
Top-Carted Third Week Of August: Skincare is always a top of our shopping list topic — but starting last week and continuing on through today, carts have been filling up with one tool in particular: a silicone exfoliator you can snag on Amazon for under $10.
reviewers swear by this gem: “These scrubbers are so soft and simple but really effective in gently scrubbing my skin (I do it once before bed with water and my cream cleanser applied) and give me a noticeably clear and brighter complexion when I wake up in the morning. They also provide such a cute pop of color by my bathroom sink. And for $7 for a four-pack it totally beats spending too much money those pricier battery-powered Foreos — which, tbh, were too irritating for my skin anyway. I love that this one only provides the amount of pressure that you want to put on your skin with your own fingers.”

Top-Carted Second Week Of August: While sandals for summer are not breaking ground as far as seasonal fashion trends go, finding a pair that perfectly strikes the balance between comfy, cute, and on super sale is something to talk about — aka this sleek pair of 80% off tumbled black leather sandals with a two-inch block heel and a cushioned GRANDFØAM footbed. Spilling over from the first week of August to the second and right on through the third, shoppers have been going IN on Cole Haan’s big summer blowout where they can currently score a myriad of under-$30 final-sale shoes (like these classic open-toed beauts).
The rave reviews start with “Excellent all-day dress sandal, got them in several colors. Runs true to size with extra cushion!” and don’t stop at “These are so comfortable! Wore them to a wedding & I was able to wear them for hours of standing and dancing without any discomfort! Would recommend!”

Ever since the summery styles (crafted from breathable cotton materials) were restocked, they’ve been skyrocketed to the tops of virtual carts.

This week’s trending name in baby essentials? Aden & Anais. Online shoppers are currently scooping up the brand’s top-rated four-pack of super-soft 100%-cotton muslin swaddle blankets in this here sweet safari print.
As one reviewer raves, “There are a million swaddles out there, so it’s hard to make a choice. But these ones won me over immediately. The design is gender-neutral, which is perfect for parents who don’t know whether they’re expecting a boy or a girl. And the design of the animals is fantastic — very easy and simple, but also sweet. They aren’t fantastically soft like some blankets you can purchase, but because swaddles get softer the more you wash them, I’m not worried.”

Reviewer praise ranges from “This is very good if you like a soft touch. Great for foreplay to get things started with a partner” to “I bought this right before quarantine, and I am so glad I did. This is a perfect product for someone who enjoys longer stimulation to reach orgasm. The multiple settings are so fun to roll through” and “Bought the Ora 3 — it’s better than oral sex!!

Scent-shopping is in this week as virtual-cart pushers are on the hunt for a comforting new smell to spritz themselves with this fall — and it looks like many are opting for this bestselling (and previously out-of-stock) bottle that smells like a book. Yep, you read that right: Commodity’s sleek black bottle is filled with a library-inspired potion with perfume notes that are described as “a crisp, woody fragrance tips its hat to the Hemingways and Fitzgeralds of the world, conjuring the warmth of a quiet moment curled up with a good book.”
As one devoted wearer of Book raves, “It’s back and still the best. A friend told me about the scent several years ago after trying it at a store. I’m an antiquarian bookseller, so perhaps she meant it as a joke, but it turned out to be the perfect scent for me–woodsy, spicy, complex, but not too heavy or overwhelming. Beyond thrilled to have it available again!!!”

Towels are trending (specifically of the set variety). We’re guessing it may have to do with an increase in time spent at home directly correlating to an increase in towel usage (or, just a finally realized need to replace those raggedy ones we’ve been using since college).
Whatever it is, sets are a great way to save some extra bucks on the bath-essentials investment front. And, currently, shoppers are carting up this six-piece set of 100% cotton towels by Bed Bath & Beyond-exclusive Wamsutta (that’s about $6 a towel) — as one reviewer raves, “The quality of these towels is supreme (American made!), and the color selection is amazing!

It may be a pricey weekly purchase but people are actually carting up this top-rated hybrid (aka coiled springs plus foam) mattress — plus, it’s currently on sale. It’s been featured onsite everywhere from our
roundup of the most wanted items from July to our top-rated mattress review coverage, where we actually slept on the trending buy for 30 days.
And here’s what we had to say: “Saatva’s
Classic in Luxury Firm comes as close to the future as I’ve seen. Unlike many online mattresses, it has springs inside, which is a must for me, as all-foam mattresses give me that ‘help I’m stuck and I can’t get up’ feeling. Upon the first trial, I was immediately skeptical of its ‘Euro pillow top’ as too squishy and hilly, as I like a more uniform surface, but the thought fled my mind as quickly as it entered it because I fell asleep immediately. I woke up without the sore back I typically get from beds that are slightly softer than a wooden board.”

And although we all know the va-jay-jay to be likened to a self-cleaning oven, there are times when we don’t always feel so fresh like after or during our menstrual cycle, after sex, etc. I have been researching natural products to use that wouldn’t disturb my pH balance and send me into a frenzy of irritation and infections. I absolutely am thrilled to learn of the Honey Pot line of products and it was well worth the wait in shipping. I have always had to buy unscented tampons and pantiliners and recently I started purchasing organic tampons and pantiliners. Now I plan to use the Honey Pot line exclusively!

I used a gel cleanser I got as a sample and my face feels so refreshed. I will say I pressed the button 3 times (1 min just didn’t seem like enough for the first time, I needed a deep cleanse). My serums even go on different after the first use — they absorb in my skin so quickly now. I’m so sad this business in shutting down. I will be buying as many brush heads as possible.”

Shoppers are in the market for blenders with sweet sale price tags this week — and this top-rated Cuisinart model for 46% off its usual price is a shining example.
The small-space-friendly machine is not short on reviewer praise: “I use it every day, so it gets a serious work out on a weekly basis. Grinding coffee, making soups, smoothies, chopping vegetables into purees (of course you have to add liquid, it’s not a food processor!). Whipping cream, chopping nuts, blending hot soups (careful, only fill it halfway and start on LOW), etc. If you want a compact, super easy to clean blender, that can go in the dishwasher, it’s just the best little blender I’ve ever come across.

Hair Styling Tools
Hop aboard the hair-styling-trend train by carting up a bestselling set of curling tools by T3 that is currently on sale for 15% off. The Volumizing Hot Rollers use the brand’s beloved HeatCore Technology to provide volume, body, and shine.
They’ve been crowned by one reviewer as The Best Heat Rollers Ever: “I am loving these hot rollers! I love the idea that any of the rollers fit on the base. I bought a set of the smaller ones in case I need a change. I will also get more of the big ones since they are a hard size to find. The quality of these rollers is unmatched and I have them on a trip, so they really travel well, too! I shouldn’t have waited so long to order them! Perfect!”

Benefit Hoola Bronzer
As part of yet another alluring weekly promo by Macy’s, Benefit’s line of cult-favorite cheek powders is available for value-sized steals — and the shoppers are rushing to cart its beloved bronzer, Hoola, in a jumbo size for 30% off its usual price.
With over 200 reviews and a near 5-out-of-5-star rating, reviewers stan this summery shade as being simply amazing and for recreating the most natural sun-kissed complexion: “This is without a doubt my favorite bronzer I have ever used. I have tried just about everything under the sun, and it is the product that I have stuck with. I really like that there is no shimmer in it; most products on the market put shimmer in everything, so it obviously looks like bronzer versus natural sun on your skin. It is a great product to use when contouring cheekbones, or just for using to match your skin tone to the rest of your body. All my makeup has SPF in it, and my face is never as tan as my body. Hoola helps blend my face to my body color.”

I loved it for reading both books and my iPad, so I bought one for myself. It’s very lightweight, holds books and notebooks at just the right angle, and allows me to be more hands-free and comfortable when I read. Thanks for making my favorite pastime a little bit easier.”

AHA 30% Peeling Solution
Did somebody say encore?
The Ordinary’s infamous peeling solution is back at the top of the cart, baby! And for good reason: this under-$10 bottle is filled with skin-exfoliating and brightening benefits that are backed by nearly 1,500 reviews on Ulta.
We’ll let its fan-favorited praise do the talking: “I’ve used this mask a few times now and I’m very impressed. After just my first use, my skin felt smoother than it has in years. My skin looked brighter, visibly softer, more even. I have mildly sensitive skin. I’m prone to redness and dryness. This mask made my skin feel a little tight afterward and my cheeks did have some temporary redness, but that’s somewhat to be expected with such a strong AHA. I moisturized afterward with
The Ordinary’s standard moisturizer. I did not (and do not recommend) use any other products that evening. Just my pre-peel wash, the AHA/BHA mask, and my moisturizer. This product is very, very strong and should be used on a night you’re not using any other actives to reduce irritation. All in all, I definitely recommend this product for 25+ skin. I think it’s probably more powerful than someone under 25 needs unless they’re dealing with acne scarring or some other topical skin concerns that would warrant a strong acid like this. If you have rosacea, I definitely recommend you consult with a dermatologist or esthetician before trying this product.”

according to the brand), “rolls over skin and plays up your bone structure with a gorgeous, pearlescent sheen.”
Reviews are raving everything from, “I have super oily skin and it didn’t make my makeup look greasy!! It stayed in place all day, it didn’t fade. This is such a BEAUTIFUL HIGHLIGHT!!!” to, “From far away, your skin looks like you just jumped out of the pool and have light bouncing off the water that is still on your face. This formula is VERY buildable. It starts out looking sheer, then one more layer and it looks blinding!”.

The tinted SPF 46 boasts a more than stellar 5-out-of-5 star rating — with reviewers touting the beauty-meets-skincare savior as simple and effective: “I have tried countless SPF’s from drugstore to very high-end brands.
