February’s round up of reader favorites screamed “ spring fever,” and according to our anonymous shopping data, March’s best sellers followed suit — only this time, whispers of summer snuck their way into the harmonies. Juicy lip oils, fruity Brazilian body lotions, body hair removal creams, and summer beauty buys of all kinds flooded readers’ carts in anticipation for the warm-weather season. In the fashion department, we spotted airy, tiered dresses, colorful shoulder bags, and comfy-yet-presentable pants — aka spring travel is in full force. Meanwhile, the top-bought home buys were all about refresh.
Take a scroll through the upcoming 29 slides for a sneak peek into the sunshiney days ahead of us. Whether you scout a sleek $150 office chair for your WFH setup or a $23 moisturizer that rivals a beauty director’s go-to $300 cream, there’s a new spring and summer staple waiting for you. Funky cat rugs, Scrub Daddy dusters, famous brow gels, and new Lululemon arrivals await your loving gaze.

Coach Pillow Tabby Shoulder Bag 18
Coach gave its beloved ’90s staple handbag a modern twist, and we simply can’t get enough. Our Affiliate Fashion Writer Vivien Lee
fell in love what the bag, writing that she can see why “TikTok queens and kings are obsessed” with the marshmallow-y Pillow Tabby. Her only issue? She now wants on in every shade.

Bring on the beach, sun, and all things summer with one of the most tropical, aromatic body lotions on the market.

Lululemon Open Back Half-Zip Sweater
We watch Lululemon like shopping hawks in anticipation of any

Anthropologie The Blythe Square-Neck Tiered Dress
Anthropologie spring dresses we trust. Out of the 11 gems we scouted on its site, this square-neck piece crafted from Anthro’s comfy “Magic Fabric” — aka, a blend of viscose, linen, cotton, and elastane — found its way into many reader carts. According to one on-site reviewer, “I saw this in the store[,] and it is really amazing. The material and fit are extremely flattering. I really hope they continue to make this available through the summer.”

AllModern Marinette Swivel Office Chair
We noticed a fresh face rising in the
office-chair ranks in March. This simple and sweet seat is a dream for small spaces and a certified budget-friendly buy with an under-$200 price tag. Plus, plenty of AllModern reviewers quip that it’s “super easy to install,” “sturdy,” and even “comfortable enough [to sit in] for eight hours.”

H&M Home Hand-Painted Stoneware Serving Dish
H&M churns out top-tier fashion collaborations like it’s nothing (our wallets are ready for this week’s
Mugler drop) — and so does H&M Home. In March, the home goods hub highlighted two women artists Lullama Wolf and Amber Vittoria in the second installment of its annual For The Love Of Art. Imaginative stoneware plates, vibrant throw pillow covers, unique tufted rugs, and more products from each artist’s capsule collections are still available for purchase.

The Ordinary The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + PhytoCeramides
As Refinery29’s Acting Beauty Director, Jacqueline Kilikita tries, applies, and buys more products than the average fellow. Last month, despite her recent “skincare fatigue,” she still got a kick out of The Ordinary’s affordable and effective
Natural Moisturizing Factors + PhytoCeramides hydrating formula. Kilikita mentions that it “rivals [her] $290 cream” and is also “incredible at repairing an ailing skin barrier, eradicating dryness, redness, and sensitivity.”

From the sheets to the streets, Quince has you covered. Based on our anonymous shopping data, when readers aren’t relaxing beneath the brand’s fluffy

ClutterConcepts Resin Pill Tray
Our Affiliate Director Sarah Crow found the perfect way to satisfy her contradicting maximalist and organizational needs: a kooky, colorful resin pill tray. In last month’s round-up of
under-$100 editors’ picks, she says, “This one is a tiny rainbow delight and brings me true joy every time I look at it.”

Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Tinted Lip Oil
First, the Soft Pinch Blush took over the nation (and by that, we mean TikTok and makeup bags everywhere); now, the new Soft Pinch Tinted Lip Oil is coming up to bat. Five Refinery29 editors
coated their lips in the hydrating formula, and it was “not what [they] expected,” per the review’s headline. Which meant they absolutely loved it.

Byoma Moisturizing Gel-Cream SPF 30
You may recognize Byoma’s eye-catching bold packaging from your routine trips to Target, or perhaps you already know about the budget-friendly brand’s worthwhile offerings. Regardless, Byoma’s newly launched Moisturizing Gel-Cream is a must-have, according to a few
sunshiney R29 editors. Senior Beauty Writer/Stories Creator Amanda Mitchell gushes, “When I tried this sunscreen the first time, I was floored. I squealed a squeal so loud it almost shattered windows. I knew immediately that this sunscreen was going to be my entire personality for a while.”

Despite spending most of their time unseen, undergarments can truly make or break an outfit. And finding a good
plus-size-friendly pair isn’t always an easy task. Well, just a heads up: Refinery29 readers carted more Old Navy cotton briefs than any other brand in our round-up last month. They’re spun with supple Supima cotton, come in cute colorways, and are available up to a size 4X.

Flamingo Body Hair Removal Cream
In no way, shape, or form is body hair a bad thing; some of us just prefer to depart ways with our furry follicles — especially come summertime. If you’re in the market for an
affordable hair removal cream, try Flamingo’s under-$10 formula that comes equipped with its very own handy spatula.

Beautiful 1.7L One-Touch Electric Kettle
Okay, so this kettle’s new dashing lavender colorway is sold out — but that won’t stop us from spotlighting the wonders of Drew Barrymore’s cult-favorite countertop appliances. In March, the actress and entrepreneur dipped a handful of her products in this
new lovely light-purple hue, and we can’t wait for the colorway to get a much-needed restock. Trust us; we’ll be the first to let you know.

Everlane’s under-$100 tote is truly a hidden gem in the

Rienar Sensor Led Night Light
$6 is a small price to pay for a “
slice of cottage-core heaven,” as our Affiliate Coordinator Becca Sax writes. Sax scored this shroom night light after spotting it on Amazon, and, according to her, it is now “the cutest addition to [her] house.” Not only does the gadget dazzle with its unique design, it also prevents any and all toe stubs by illuminating your path with its calming glow.

NYX The Brow Glue
A few swipes of
this $9 gel through my forehead follicles, and I knew in my heart that NYX’s Brow Glue would always be famous. According to our anonymous shopping data, plenty of readers (and their newly sculpted eyebrows) agree. In my review, I gabbed, “It’s sticky and goopy when wet; thick and tacky when applied; sleek and glossy when dried. The Brow Glue deserves a spot in makeup bags.”

Golde Blueberry Calm Ade
In an attempt to help readers save daylight and their sleep routines this spring, we
consulted certified sleep coach Becca Fair on the best ways to counteract the finicky time change. One of her tips? Cut out late-afternoon caffeine for restorative sleep. For some extra-impactful Z’s, sip on Golde’s magnesium-rich and Calm Ade.

Scrub Daddy Damp Duster
#Cleantok is one of the most oddly comforting sectors of TikTok. Whether it’s watching men clean the dirtiest rugs you’ve ever seen or listening in on crisp spray bottle spritzes — we recommend taking a scroll… and paying attention to their product recs. Like Scrub Daddy’s damp cleaning cloth that doesn’t just sweep, it soaks up dust thanks to its pre-moistened material. Quite a must-have for the allergy-prone.

There’s peanut butter and jelly, and then there are Refinery29 editors and Mansur Gavriel bags. From the
classic bucket to the new M Frame silhouette, our editors and this fashion brand’s bags go together like whatever they say in that one Grease song. The mini M Frame is our Fashion Writer Frances Solá-Santiago’s go-to spring investment pick. She writes, “This mini bag by Mansur Gavriel is a great transitional piece because it’s both a crossbody bag and a clutch — just remove the straps and you’re good to go — which makes it a great investment piece.”

Supergoop! took its fan-favorite silky gel face sunscreen formula and made it for the whole body. It’s understandable. As our Senior Writer Karina Hoshikawa puts it in her review, the OG product “was everything we knew a sunscreen not to be,” in the best way possible. After giving it a try, she recommends it to any and all looking for “an everyday sunscreen for your bod that
doesn’t give you a white cast or make you feel like you’re about to lay out poolside in all your greasy glory.” Enough said.
