The Under-$100 Items R29 Shopping Editors Bought In May

·12 min read

Annnd, we're back. The R29 Shopping team has returned with another splendid assortment of our under-$100 favorites. If April was all about home decor and timeless attire, May is all about kitchen basics, beauty products, and self-care. Close your browser's 20 shopping tabs aside and trust the team that lives by the motto "shop till you drop."

This month, we're introducing you to a whimsical rainbow knife set and an easy-yet-powerful frother. (The latter will change your go-to $7 coffee.) Self-care is also at the top of the list — as it always should be. Take a gander, and treat yourself from a sea of skin-care items like cleansers, serums, light creams, and even a sun rescue balm (begone, you painful sunburns). 

Ahead, find your new treasured piece among the editors' picks. We don't blame you if you decide to go on a mini shopping spree. 

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 or click on something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.

<h3>Inconspicuous Consumption: The Environmental Impact You Don't Know Have </h3><br>"I’m a big, big, BIG reader and have recently been trying to add more nonfiction to my list.

It breaks down the issues in the food industry, fashion, technology/the internet, and transportation/fuel in a really digestible way, explains how ultimately everything is connected, and integrates issues of inequality.

<h3>Finishing Touch Flawless Women's Painless Hair Remover </h3><br>"I used to shave my face with those dermaplaning razors, but after nicking myself too many times, I had to find an alternative for removing peach fuzz.

<h3>Gemzeem The Original DIY Tooth Gem Starter Kit</h3><br>"I highly recommend taking a tooth you dislike and putting a gem on it. The Swarovski I've got is small enough that it's a subtle, unexpected glimmer whenever I open my mouth. Makes my chompers feel a little more luxe, you know? I should mention, for the record, that I had someone else put this rhinestone on for me (I just laid down the whole time). So while I can't speak on how difficult the process of applying the gem is, I can say it took maybe 10 minutes from start to finish. It was all pretty straightforward — the only unchic part was having cotton in between my gums and lips.

<h3>Downy Wrinkle Releaser Fabric Spray </h3><br>"Summer brings sun, longer days, lightweight clothes, and easily wrinkled attire.

<h3>Rise Brewing Co.

Not only are all the flavors super yummy (I’m partial to vanilla), but they taste just as fresh as if I’d ordered them from my favorite barista.

Rise Brewing Co. Variety Pack


"I’m not much of a coffee drinker (I have one to two cups a week and only in the afternoons — never in the morning), but there’s no denying that an iced oat latte is absolutely delicious — and expensive. In an effort to lessen the burden on my wallet, I recently caved and tried Rise’s canned versions. Not only are all the flavors super yummy (I’m partial to vanilla), but they taste just as fresh as if I’d ordered them from my favorite barista. Best of all, each one costs about $3.33, which is half of what I’d pay for one at a local coffee shop." —Karina Hoshikawa, Beauty & Wellness Market Writer
