You may have noticed some posts from our friends at the Strategist on the Cut. They’ll be dropping in every now and again, sharing their expertise on the basics you don’t have time to research and the weird and wonderful things you don’t yet know you need.
This weekend’s edition of the best sales I found across the internet is bursting at the seams with on-sale gift ideas if you’re doing a bit of last-minute Valentine’s Day scrambling. But even if you aren’t, there are plenty of other great discounts, like a cache of toasty outerwear from Patagonia, our favorite cream-blush stick, and a customizable memory-foam pillow. As always, make sure to sign up for our email newsletter for even more sales coverage.
If you haven’t already incorporated a snail-mucin product into your skin-care routine, consider this a sign to invest in the ingredient that helps achieve that glowy “glass skin” look touted by K-beauty products. This moisturizer, which also tops our list of best-rated snail-mucin skin-care products, contains glycoproteins, hyaluronic acid, and glycolic acid to help seal in moisture and give you a dewy appearance.
Or if you prefer to keep your fuzz on the inside, this forest-green hoodie is half off.
Patagonia’s iconic Better Sweater is also on sale in four colors. As a neutrals-loving gal, I’m partial to this chocolate brown.
As someone with sensitive skin, I prefer sugar scrubs to salt scrubs — they feel much gentler — so I’m intrigued by this option from celeb- and Strategist-approved brand True Botanicals. The vegan and cruelty-free formula contains organic sugar, sandalwood, jojoba oil, and kaolin clay, which work together to slough away dry skin. (The body oil to lock in your newly smooth skin is on sale, too.)
Klorane is also having a sitewide sale, so you can pick up our overall best dry shampoo for 25 percent off. Hairstylist Benjamin Talbott says it’s good for especially oily hair because the oat milk in the formula acts as an astringent to soak all that extra grease up.
For a mystical valentine, this scented candle gradually burns to reveal a unique gold-plated tarot-card charm.
For a weekend getaway bag, we recommend the O.G. 2 from Lo & Sons, which is our top pick for light packers. Travel journalist Maggie Espinosa has used the 25-liter bag as both a carry-on and a weekender for over eight years, most recently to take home a souvenir handmade pottery planter from Oaxaca.
Swedish Hasbeens has been handcrafting status-y clogs since the ’70s ( and the brand is often featured across our site). While it’s too chilly to show toes outside just yet, I’m happy to report that several pairs of cold-weather-appropriate footwear are 60 percent off.
