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.
We’ve got a bit of everything in today’s sales roundup, including two coffee makers, a fragrance-free moisturizer, and Halloween-themed doormats (because October begins this Sunday, after all). And for a dose of glamour, there’s a glittery turtleneck for adults and a sparkling unicorn-shaped crossbody bag for kids. As always, make sure to sign up for our email newsletter for even more sales coverage — including five extra deals every Friday handpicked by yours truly.
I love this dermatologist-approved body moisturizer from Neutrogena, which goes on like a gel — and thankfully for my fellow sensitive-skin folks, it’s fragrance-free.
Some well-rated rain boots to slog through the rest of the rainy season.
Shark makes some of our favorite inexpensive vacuums, and you can usually find a few on sale at Amazon at any given time. This corded one is equipped with a HEPA filter to trap dust and dander, as well as two extra attachments to vacuum upholstery and in hard-to-reach crevices.
Lots of apparel from Amazon’s in-house line, the Drop, is on sale right now. These are a step above your average sweatpants, thanks to a cinched ankle and seams down the middle of the leg.
Some dressier pants for days you need to trek into the office.
It’s time to put away your shorts and swimsuits — and this multipack of under-bed storage bags is just $13 for six containers with the on-site coupon.
And for coffee on the go, this device brews an eight-ounce cup in just two minutes.
A not-too-heavy henley for adults looking to layer …
… and a handsome quarter-zip to keep the kids cozy. It’s on-sale in both black and royal blue.
A bit early, but this would make a great under-$15 gift for the Marvel fan to keep on hand as a stocking stuffer.
I’m completely obsessed with this glamorous crossbody bag (but it’ll also delight the kid who thinks that their tutu is a non-negotiable part of their school uniform).
A very timely, pumpkin-orange scrunchie, now half-off.
It’s not too early to bust out this Halloween doormat. Plus, the bats’ eyes light up.
For something a little spookier.
Knix’s Vault Sale began yesterday, where you can buy dozens of undergarments for up to 60 percent off. Although these are designed to be period underwear, stylist Julia Gudova told us the brand’s bikinis are a great option when it comes to hiding sweat, too — and they comes in sizes XS through 4XL.
And one former thong skeptic swears by this leakproof style. The secret, she says, is in the extra-long absorbent gusset that provides plenty of coverage.
I’m intrigued by the LipFuel tinted lip balm, which contains both hyaluronic acid and vitamin E to hydrate lips. It comes in three your-lips-but-better shades, as well as classic clear.
