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.
There are a ton of great sales happening this weekend, but the one I’m most excited about is the one happening at SkinStore, as thousands of Strategist-vetted hair-care, skin-care, and beauty products are 25 percent off. Plus, Nordstrom has been adding new products to its Anniversary Sale throughout the week, so I’d suggest taking a scroll to find everything from New Balance sneakers to Le Creuset cookware. Below, you’ll also find excellent deals on a foldable fan that’s ideal for travel, a Shark vacuum, and several Rio-approved lip products at ColourPop. And, as always, make sure to sign up for our email newsletter for five extra deals I’ve handpicked just for our subscribers.
Shark makes some of our favorite affordable vacuums, and this slim model is just $100 today. It can convert into a handheld vacuum with the press of a button, and it comes with two extra nozzles so you can suck up dirt from hard-to-reach places.
Nordstrom’s Anniversary sale is still going strong. Here’s a ribbed bath towel that comes in three colors: gray, white, and blue.
We love Herschel Supply Co.’s spacious duffel bags, and this extra-large option is available in five intriguing patterns.
At SkinStore, thousands of Strategist-approved products are 25 percent off through Sunday night with the code SUMMER. Strategist writer Dominique Pariso says that this vitamin-C serum “leaves a velvety finish” and brightens her under eyes even better than the cult-favorite Ole Henriksen Banana Bright cream.
We’ve lauded Colorescience’s brush-on sunscreen, but if you’d like to forgo powder, I’ve heard good things about this slightly tinted option.
I spotted this pair of stylish running shoes from Adidas for less than $50 at REI. They’re also on sale at Adidas if you don’t mind paying a bit more for a few more color options.
Already-on-sale products enjoy the discount, too, making these comfy lounge shorts over 50 percent off.
For everyday wear, these go-with-everything linen shorts are just $35.
Here’s a dining-area-size flat-weave rug for just $65.
K-beauty brand Kaja is also discounting its lip products this weekend. I’m obsessed with this lip-stain key chain (that can also be used as a blush).
