Last year was undoubtedly a time of seismic change - and so it's no surprise that lifestyle adjustments were reflected in over 50s' shopping habits. When lockdowns became part of everyday life, many older women turned to at-home solutions for their beauty needs. Top brands included Garnier, Clarins and Avon and there were not one, but eight facial hair removers on the list. Scroll down to find out which ones were coveted the most.
Face coverings were also popular in 2020 (we don't need to explain why!) with Sea Salt and Boden being the go-to brands for these products (gransetters are certainly safe and stylish). And it seems the pandemic hasn't stopped our users looking for love, if only virtually for now, with Ourtime dating site featuring in the top ten. One gransnetter said: “I met my partner on a dating site called Ourtime (for the over 50s). I do not need a man or indeed am I desperate BUT companionship in your retirement years as well as being in love is absolutely wonderful.”
So whether you're looking for some recommendations for your own lockdown purchases or just fancy having a nosy, here are the top 50 products (by unit) bought via links on our site.
