Welcome back to Your Shopping Cart, wherein we break out the top-five products that you, devoted Strategist readers, all bought in droves. Think of this as the tl;dr of the Strategist: If your like-minded brethren are buying these items, maybe you’d like to, too.
Once again, our top seller this installment is the Hairstory New Wash, a hair cleanser (don’t call it a shampoo) introduced to us by writer Molly Young that gives hair bounce and waves while cleaning and conditioning. In the No. 2 spot is beauty junkie Rio Viera-Newton’s set of Korean snail mucin eye patches — 60 of ’em for just $10 — that take under-eyes from purple to perky. The third-place winner is writer Alice Gregory’s Face Stockholm lipstick in a freakishly flattering shade called Cranberry Veil (which was also a favorite of the late Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy). Right after that is yet another Korean beauty discovery from Viera-Newton — a face mask–slash–social media sensation that revitalizes and brightens your skin for days. And rounding out the top five yet again: a Uniqlo cashmere sweater that’s half off, at just 40 bucks.
Hairstory New Wash
1. The Shampoo Replacement I Only Have to Use Once a Week
The Hairstory New Wash, created by a Bumble and Bumble co-founder, is a new kind of hair product. It’s like a shampoo, except that it doesn’t lather (meaning it doesn’t strip your hair of its bounce-producing oils). It’s not just a conditioner, either. We’ll let writer Molly Young explain what’s so brilliant about the stuff: “My long hair air-dries perfectly, with no ‘squeaky’ texture. It is shiny and falls in loose waves, like it did when I was a kid. I don’t need to blow-dry it. My chronic flaky scalp (sorry!) is gone forever. I customarily wash my hair every three days. With New Wash, once a week. When friends remark that my hair looks nice, it’s fun to say, ‘I haven’t shampooed in six months.’ Which is technically accurate.”
