Sale Boots, Pumpkin Candles, Cloud Robes, & More Top Buys This Week

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 value-pack of soothing hand sanitizer to the soft-as-a-cloud cotton robe — 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 (spoiler alert: it involves a desk chair from Kelly Clarkson's home line and a cult-status organic lube).


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.

Pumpkin Candle

It's pumpkin SZN — and you know what that means? Search for pumpkin-flavored-and-scented everything is up over 200% this week. Here's one product in particular shoppers can't get enough of: Homesick's Pumpkin Picking Candle.

The nostalgic-scent-crafting brand's timely fall votive is filled with what it describes as "Vibrant leaves welcoming hayrides and the search for the perfect pumpkin. A cool fall day with hot apple cider and pumpkin spice."

Cloud Cotton Robe

If this trending weekly buy doesn't have you at "cloud cotton," then perhaps its rave customer reviews will: from "It took me a while to pull the trigger and make this purchase — but I'm happy I did! It makes me feel dreamy for my extended time frolicking around my apartment" to "This robe is lovely. It manages to be light and airy, but cozy as well. Magical" and "Softest most beautiful cotton robe."

Parachute's bestselling robe (crafted from 100% long-staple Turkish cotton in a super-luxe 2-ply gauze weave) is becoming a fast stay-at-home staple for fall — and, we imagine, will be a top buy for gifting season, too.

Stila Liquid Eyeliner

Stila is having a moment. The nostalgic beauty brand is continuing to trend across virtual carts as shoppers reinvest in its iconic makeup classics, like the Stay All Day liquid liner and its updated Stay All Day Micro Tip (love the precision of that teeny tiny waterproof tip!).

We're guessing it has to do with the makeup-power player's effortless Zoom beautifying benefits and mask-wearing eye-drama potential — or, as one of its 7,000+ 5-star reviewers states: "A dream to draw with: no skips or tugging, and creates the perfect sharp flick for a cat eye."

If it's pumpkin candle and cloud robe SZN, then you better believe there's more than enough trending-cart space for some cozy slippers! Shoppers are on the fluffy footwear hunt this week for pairs that will cushion and cuddle their stay-at-home feet all fall long — and it's tough to beat Uniqlo's simple-but-chic pair crafted from an oh-so-soft cotton blem for just under $15 a pop.

Organic Lube

Sexual wellness is always on-trend — and this week, shoppers are all about Maude's consistently bestselling Shine Organic lube.

Crafted in the U.S. from a naturally hydrating and fragrance-free aloe base (that's also pH-balanced to boot!), this personal lubricant also totes "amazing" customer reviews: "All I have to say is WOW! I have tried lots of other lubes and this is by far the best that I have ever used. I applied it once and did not have to reapply and we went for a very long time. I applied liberally but not sure if I needed to apply so much."

Amazon Fall Dresses

After combing Amazon for the best fall dresses of the seemingly endless bunch, this under-$25 tie-waist style with oversized lantern sleeves came out as the current top-of-cart champion.

Reviewers of this #1 Best Seller autumn frock tout its solid quality, form-fitting-yet-still-comfy fit, and beautiful color. As one shopper confessed, "This dress is perfect! It fits like a glove and the tie waist makes your waist look small and covers any stomach you don’t want peeking out of a tighter dress. It’s snug but in a perfect way. I bought this as an option for a holiday party and although I chose a different outfit, I still decided to keep this over returning it because it’s so cute and flattering! Also the color and material are great for year-round wear. I want more!!!!"

The Ordinary Foundation

An Ordinary good we've yet to see hit the weekly top-bought charts: this currently trending Ulta-exclusive from the brand is crafted with a blend of pH-balanced, sulfate-free vegan ingredients that are formulated for a smooth, natural, and long-lasting finish that doesn't collect or clump in facial lines.

Fans call it everything from an "Underrated Holygrail" to the "Perfect Foundation" and back its buildable stay-all-day benefits with an au-natural look.

Desk Chair

Top-Carted Second Week Of September:
The new reigning desk-chair champ that WFH-shoppers continue to add to cart in September? This retro-chic style crafted by Kelly Clarkson Home (that's right).

The top-rated and top-bought velvet-upholstered chair comes in a range of vibrant space-brightening colors — and totes a range of vibrant rave reviews, too: "The velvet is very soft to the touch and I have had no issues sitting on the chair for 4-5 hours at a time. I also like that the back is slightly angled back. On top of all of that, the chair took less than 5 minutes to assemble! You just need to pop on the wheels, screw the seat on, and then slide the rest into place. I would definitely recommend making the purchase if you have been thinking about it."

Auburn Brow Gel

Glossier's cult-favorite "Boy Brow" product (and bestseller since 2015) just launched in a brand new Auburn shade — and all you redhead shoppers out there have been Carting. It. Up.

The best part about the new shade? According to our Beauty Writer, Karina Hoshikawa, "you don't necessarily need to be a redhead to experiment with warming up your brow color: As someone with naturally black-brown hair, I've had makeup artists create a softer, lighter brow by using an ash brown/bronde gel. This trick also works great in photos if your brows are anything like mine and go from naturally full to Groucho Marx very quickly."

Cloud Comforter

If you thought a robe was the only cloud-style product you were going to see trending at the tops of this week's carts, then think again: Buffy's Cloud Comforter is joining the most wanted product competition. The search for fluffy comforters is up and shoppers' first choice continues to be the sustainable bedding brand's bestselling creation that's touted as super-soft and extra-snuggly.

Reviewers love the blend of all natural eucalyptus materials and recycled fill for it's almost impossible feeling of substantial lightness (aka a literal cloud).

The drugstore cult-favorite CeraVe is trending up this week with shoppers carting its budget-friendly and seasonally-appropriate skincare essentials. Its Hydrating Facial Cleanser isn't only a current top-bought item, it's also #1 Best Seller on Amazon with over 16,000 reviews praising its hyaluronic acid, ceramides, and glycerin formula as a "Must have!!"

One happy shopper states, "I have dry, extremely sensitive skin. I bought this cleanser on a whim, and it’s the best one I’ve ever used! To be specific, this cleanser does not lather like soap. It reminds me a lot of how primer from Bare Minerals feels. It’s silky smooth! I use one pump and rub it all over my face for about a minute. I’ve never had an issue with it not removing my makeup! I mean, waterproof mascara needs a little extra help coming off, but a regular foundation, eye shadow, etc. comes off just fine. I used to not be able to wash my face multiple times a day for fear of my skin drying out. Now I can wash my face as often as I want and I never dry out. I feel like this cleanser really does restore the skin's barrier. Not every beauty product works for everyone. But I had to leave a positive review of this product I love so much! I look forward to washing my face now, and it’s helped me to stick to my skincare routine."

Always Pan

Top-Carted First Week Of September:
We've seen this one grace the top ranks of our weekly most wanted lists before, but this time it's back in a brand new hue. On September 1, sustainable-chic cookware outpost, Our Place, launched its cult-favorite Always Pan in a dreamy lavender colorway that shoppers rushed to cart up.

If you've yet to hear about the allure of this ever-popular kitchen essential, then check out my first-person review here — where I whip up a one-pot meal using the iconic pan's multipurpose powers. (And snag an R29 reader-exclusive discount when you shop it, too: using code R29OURPLACE.)

Faux Leather Leggings

Top-Carted Of August:
Fall is about to be filled with faux-leather legging clad work-from-homers as sleek pairs are scooped up by the dozens (like this top-bought pair from August).

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."
