What R29 Readers Bought In August: $13 Retinol, Rug Grippers, & Slip Dresses

August is the Sunday of summer. While we want to savour this season finale, it can often send us spiralling in anticipation of what's ahead. Maybe you spent the past few weeks methodically stocking up on back-to-school supplies and new black boots. Or, maybe you were entirely wrapped up in showing off your favourite sundresses and savouring those last cups of homemade cold brew. Whichever way you chose to play out this swan song month, there's a good chance that some of your purchases wound up on our August most wanted list.
