Anyone else feel like 2023 flew by? This year we've been treated to a host of health and fitness trends, from cosy cardio to the Hot Girl Walk, plus buzzy products that have flooded our social media feeds (hello Stanley Quencher cup, we're looking at you). 

But, our shopping habits aren't just influenced by what we see as we scroll on TikTok and Instagram - they're also a mirror of the year's climate (both literally and metaphorically). The roasting summer temperatures and cost-of-living crisis are reflected in some of the best-selling wellness items of 2023 so far, which we've got the intel on thanks to John Lewis and Lakeland. 

Which we're all about investing in items you'll actually use forever here at Marie Claire UK, it's also interesting seeing which products have flown off the shelves and topped the charts as best-sellers, plus will likely help you decide whether they're worth your money or not.

Ready to find which wellness products that have been filling our baskets, and homes, this year? Keep scrolling - and don't miss the most popular workout exercises of the year, while you're at it.

Amy Sedghi is a freelance journalist, specialising in health and fitness, travel, beauty, sustainability and cycling.

Having started her career in The Guardian newsroom working with an award-winning team, Amy's proud to have reported on a variety of topics, speaking to a range of voices and travelling far and wide to do so. From interviews on ski lifts to writing up breaking stories outside courtrooms, Amy is used to reporting from a range of locations (she’s even been known to type up a story in a tent).

She also loves being active, spending time outdoors and travelling - with some of her favourite features she’s worked on combining all three. Cycling and eating her way round the Isle of Man, learning to sail on the Côte d'Azur and traversing the Caminito del Rey path in Spain are just some of her highlights.

Covering a diverse range of subjects appeals to Amy. One minute she may be writing about her online styling session with Katie Holmes’ stylist and the next she’s transporting readers to the basketball courts of Haringey where she joined a group trying to lower knife crime in the capital.

While at university, Amy was awarded The Media Society bursary. Following her stint at the Guardian, Amy worked at Google and as well as writing for Marie Claire, she regularly contributes interviews, features and articles to National Geographic Traveller, The Guardian, The Independent, The Telegraph, Stylist, Refinery29, Glorious Sport, Cycling Weekly and Rouleur.

When she’s not writing, Amy can be found trying to get through her towering stack of books-to-read, cycling down at Herne Hill Velodrome or looking for the next place to eat and drink with friends.
