SPF & Baggy Shorts: +9 Other Items Everyone’s Buying 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 Harry Potter eyeshadow palette to the pair of pull-on shorts — 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 in store (spoiler: it involves a mini hot tub for your feet).

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.

Tinted SPF

Summer is the season of sunscreen — so we weren't surprised to find this bottle of niacinamide, zinc oxide, and sodium-hyaluronate formula by eltaMD at the top of shoppers' carts.

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. Elta UV Clear (and tinted version) is a 10! My skin is protected, with no clogged pores, and no irritation — it looks good if I put a dusting powder over the top or just go with sunscreen. Also, I feel it washes off very nicely with a mild cleanser. So glad I found this product. I have re-purchased it many times."

Pull-On Shorts

Pull-on shorts are to July what biker shorts were to June — in other words, this easy style is selling out everywhere, from Madewell to Gap and even Patagonia, as people look for the next comfort-first piece to slip on for summer.

(We've even got an entire story dedicated to these boxer-like baggies in the works.)

Harry Potter Eye Shadow Palette

Eyeshadow palettes are trending right now — and the one at the top of the shopping heap happens to be this Hogwarts-House-inspired product drop from the new Harry Potter X Ulta Beauty collab.

With everything from snakey Slytherin shades to golden Hufflepuff huesRavenclaw twilight blues, and shimmering Gryffindor reds, superfans can now rep their favorite houses on their lids.

Matching Pajama Set

Since we've all been stuck at home for the past four months (and counting), there's been a general reclaiming of comfort-fashion occurring across our online shopping habits — starting with matching sweatsuits in spring and moving to matching PJ sets for summer. This particular $30 set from Uniqlo was designed by the London-based Joy of Print and is crafted from a super-soft and stretchy blend of cotton, rayon, and spandex.

We're envisioning it looking just as fabulous barefoot in bed as paired with sandals and taken to the streets.

Bubble Mate Foot Spa

Remember when we mentioned a mini hot tub for your feet? Well, this foot bath complete with water jets and raised-massage nodes is it. A #1 Bestseller on Amazon with over 2,000 reviews, the tiny spa for your feet is an at-home spa to pedicure and self-care star.

As one customer attests, "This is the most relaxing gift I've ever bought for myself! It's just as good as a foot massage! It's very easy to use! It makes my feet super clean and very happy! My feet haven't been this clean or smooth since I was a baby and that was a hundred years ago (not 100). I told a friend to buy one for her sister and for herself! I promise you will wish you knew about this years ago! I wish I did!"

Breathable Non-Wire Bra

Another major stay-at-home shopping trend that is still going strong this week? Comfortable bras. This breathable, non-wire style from Negative is crafted from a sheer Belgian-power micromesh (i.e. a blend of nylon and spandex) — and it's backed by nearly 800 reviews with a 4.7-out-of-5-star rating.

Case in point: "I have been looking for this bra forever. Minimal, sexy, no wire, fits well, boobs stay in place. For a C cup with breasts that tend to lean inward, this has been impossible. I've had my eye on this bra for months and after reading a ton of reviews from women with C+ cups, I decided to give it a try. HIT THE 'ADD TO CART' BUTTON, BBs. IT'S WORTH IT. It's beautiful, sexy, minimal – and it *actually f^cking fits.* Never felt this good in a real bra."

Non-Medical Face Mask With Filter

Non-medical face coverings aren't new top-shopped news at this point, but breathable options better suited for summer activities are.

This top-shopped, reusable style from Brave New Look is made from a cooling cotton-spandex blend that's designed to fit comfortably around the nose and face — plus, it also comes stocked with a 5-layer PM2.5 activated-carbon filter for extra protection.

Brave New Look Protective Face Mask with PM 2.5 Filter, $, available at Brave New Look

100% Cotton Bandana

Another type of trending non-medical face covering: the cotton bandana. This top-bought beauty is designed by D.C.-based artist Ama Schulman whose shop, All Very Goods, is featured on Etsy. Schulman describes her work as a modern take on the traditional bandana — with this 100%-cotton design serving as a reflection of, "self care, carving out a space for yourself and being comfortable in your own skin."

The summer styling opportunities don't stop at a breathable face mask: you can tie this vibrant accessory anywhere from your hair to your handbag, wrist, shirt collar, and beyond.

Platform Sandals

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 and cute is something to talk about — and that's where this slightly-squared toe, low-platform Camper style with an inset footbed comes in. Oh, and did we mention it's on sale?

As one enthusiast raved, "These truly are the most comfortable sandals I’ve ever owned. The leather is very soft and the heel and footbed have just enough squish to them that I can wear them ALL day. Very well made and worth every penny. Runs true to size."

AHA 30% Peeling Solution

If you haven't yet heard, The Ordinary is a minimalist-chic looking skincare brand that offers fan-favorite products at crazy low prices. And, although the brand has been around since 2013, its line of skin-perfecting treatments is still trending strong — with this AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution at the top of this week's shopping cart.

This under-$10 bottle with skin-exfoliating and brightening benefits totes 4.4 out of 5 stars and nearly 1,500 reviews on Ulta — so, we'll let its amassed 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."

Nike Cotton Crew Socks

As much as we love a flashy new product drop or a wacky hidden gem find, sometimes the best buys are basic. This $20 six-pack of cotton crew socks by Nike exemplifies our feelings as not only a top-carted item of the week but also as a standing #1 Bestseller on Amazon with 936 reviews and 4.4 out of 5 stars.

Ahh, nothing hits the shopping spot like a really good pair of $3 socks.
