April was a month of surprises. Love Is Blind‘s Friday night premieres spurred more “I’m staying in :/” texts than ever before. Californians begrudgingly discovered windshield wipers. And New Yorkers actually took time off work to frolic outside on 80-degree days. But according to our anonymous shopping data, there was one thing climate and Love Is Blind couldn’t change: Refinery29 readers’ top-bought product picks.
The upcoming slides feature more classic R29 reader-favorite buys than ever before. We’re talking Lelo’s “clitorally-mindblowing” Sona 2 Cruise, Onyx Professionals’ tried-and-true nail strengthening cream, Wayfair’s perpetually 70% off cooling pillow, and more oldies but goodies. Hey, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. That being said, our slew of editors’ picks — from vetted Amazon gems to Sephora sale must-haves — introduced a new wave of best-sellers that, quite frankly, feel like classics already.
Score a few new reader best sellers but keep a few dollars to restock the old… or however the saying goes, ahead.
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. All product details reflect the price and availability at the time of publication. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.

Lelo Sona 2
Our sex writer Charlotte Lewis tests more sex toys than your average Joe (we assume) — still, Lelo’s top-rated sex tech blew her away. Despite her initial skepticism, she writes, “I’ll tell you without a doubt: the hype is real.” Need we say more?
LELO SONA 2, $, available at LELO
Westman Atelier Mini Petite Lit Up Cream Highlighter Stick
Sephora’s spring sale made quite a good impression on R29 readers — especially our Senior Affiliate Strategist’s highlighter stick pick. She admittedly “[fangirls] over anything Westman Atelier,” and therefore scored another one for half the price. Though the sale is over, according to a slew of on-site reviews, it’s worth buying a full price.
Westman Atelier Mini Petite Lit Up Cream Highlighter Stick, $, available at Sephora

Steripod Clip-On Toothbrush Protector
Who would’ve thought a somewhat boring and practical purchase would wind its way into so many readers’ carts. Clearly what I wrote in our round-up resonated with readers: “I will pay $6 for peace of mind any day. These little pods clasp perfectly onto every toothbrush I’ve owned (both regular and electric) and leave it smelling minty fresh. Seriously, they have a pleasant sterile aroma to them because of the thymol vapors, and it lasts for months.”
Steripod Clip-On Toothbrush Protector, $, available at Amazon

These classic jeans kill two birds with one stone — they’re great for both curvy and petite body types. We were tipped off by the VP of Small Girls PR , who told us, “I am 4’11” and curvy, so I have a very hard time finding petite jeans, and these are the only jeans that have fit me without needing to be tailored in all of my years on this planet.”
