What Strategist Readers Are Buying: Toothbrushes and Summer Dresses

Welcome back to Your Shopping Cart, wherein we break out the top ten 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.

While lots of you took advantage of Amazon Prime Day to get ahead on winter shopping (the Orolay coat was a hit), your regular purchases include a slew of summer necessities. On this week’s best-seller list, we’ve got two sunscreens (a K-beauty pick from Strategist beauty writer Rio Viera-Newton in sixth, and a longtime dermatologist favorite in eighth); a powerful bug repellent in seventh; and two affordable summer dresses (a work-friendly style we found on sale from an Amazon house brand in second place, and a Loft dress recommended by writer Alice Gregory in tenth). Also making waves on the list this week are teeth-cleaning products we covered during last month’s Teeth Week. In fact, the first and third-place spots this week go to a dentist-approved charcoal whitening powder and a silver-infused toothbrush, respectively, with each making its best-seller debut. And in its second appearance on our list, a classic electric toothbrush (that dentists love) finishes in fourth place. Finally, two returning champs make the list once more — a toy piano for babies in fifth (up from seventh) and a pillow for side sleepers in ninth for the second time in a row.

I carry bottles of water, but I also have a Sawyer squeeze water filter. Also, if it’s cold, make sure you sleep with your water filter in your sleeping bag, so it doesn’t freeze.
