Every January the R29 Shopping team comes together to decide what 29 products truly knocked our socks off the previous year. We spotlight everything from mattresses to loungewear, travel must-haves, and more. This year’s top-bought MVP? RoseSkinCo.’s permanent hair removal device. Our Sexual Health & Wellness Writer Charlotte Lewis is a fan: “I can’t believe how much slower the hair already is growing in. It isn’t necessarily lighter or thinner yet, but the device has definitely slowed the growth down.”
