Best Prime Day Skin-Care Deals

Five Cut editors swear by this lip mask and so does the whole internet, apparently. It’s a favorite since it actually leaves your lips so soft and also smells (and tastes) great.


One of the best-reviewed eye creams on Amazon, thanks to it being suitable for all skin types and incredibly affordable. Our own writer Chinea Rodriguez loves its ability to soothe chapped, irritated, and very sensitive skin.

CosRx products are simple but effective, and we love when they go on sale — especially this snail mucin. Former beauty director Kathleen Hou liked how this product was a good hydrating base that made her skin feel nourished.

From $10 for 36

Another favorite pimple-patch brand. Perfect for stubborn whiteheads, simply place one on the pimple and wait until it turns white before taking it off.

When it comes to eczema creams, this has been dubbed “the holy grail” thanks to its calming formula that significantly reduces rough patches.

Weleda Skin Food Original

If we had a penny for every time this moisturizer has been mentioned in the Cut’s Why Is Your Skin So Good series! It leaves your skin extremely moisturized and is great to lather on during the colder months.

Shopping writer Chinea Rodriguez described this sunscreen as one that absorbs quickly and easily. Instead of feeling tacky, it’s hydrating while providing ample coverage from the sun.

Best Prime Day Hair-Care Deals

Samnyte Hair Wax Stick

Control any flyaways with this Cut editor–approved wax stick. It’s the perfect product to style a slicked-back bun when you skipped your hair-wash day.

Kristin Ess Dry Shampoo

Cut Shop editor Hanna Flanagan swears by this dry shampoo. She loves how lightweight it feels on her hair and how it never leaves white residue.

Rid your hair of excess dirt and product with this shampoo from Ouai. Formulated with apple-cider vinegar, its made to be used one to two times per week to really detox your hair.

I’ve been using this product for as long as I can remember and know it does a great job at protecting my hair from heat when I decide to style it. Highly recommend!

TOCESS Big Hair Claw Clips
From $7
From $7

Claw clips are still the hair accessory for anyone to have.

Best Prime Day Makeup Deals

TikTok is obsessed with this mascara, and rightfully so. We even named it one of the best drugstore mascaras.

A good dupe and one of the best eyebrow gels on the market, according to our very own shopping writer Chinea Rodriguez.

Even if these are considered drugstore brushes, many makeup artists love them, so now is your chance to get this set at a discount.

Anastasia’s brow products are top-notch, including this powder duo that allows you to create fuller-looking brows.

Though this product has its fair share of dupes out there, it still provides amazing laminated brows that stay all day long.

This foundation is buildable and offers a nice glow to those who don’t want a matte finish (and some even compare it to the Giorgio Armani foundation).

Best Prime Day Body-Care Deals

CeraVe is beloved by Cut editors like Maya Allen, our beauty director-at-large, when it comes to moisturizers. This itch-relief version is no exception. It’s even strong enough to help those who have eczema and dermatitis.

Cut editor Hanna Flanagan loves this foaming self-tanner. It dries quickly, isn’t streaky, and actually has a natural-looking olive undertone.

This shower oil smells like cookies, isn’t too runny, and leaves your skin so soft. It’s luxury in a bottle, and former beauty director Kathleen Hou is a longtime fan thanks to its pleasing almondy-vanilla scent and the way that this oil becomes a frothy, silky lather with water that negates the need for lotion afterward.

I mean, who doesn’t want sunscreen that looks like whipped cream?

Best Prime Day Fashion Deals

This blazer looks way more expensive than it is and comes in 14 other color options.


A good basic white tee is a must-have in any closet.

Get ready for cozy season with this cotton crewneck that comes in seven different colors.

Reviewers love the look of this satin blouse and commend how well it holds up in the wash.

A quality sweater at a quarter of the price. This does run large, so be sure to order true to size or one down for your intended fit.

We love dupes, and these are no exception.

Best Prime Day Tech Deals

Pair with your Alexa to add voice control to any outlet in your household.

SUPRUS Electric Lighter

You’ll never have to buy another big lighter again, thanks to this electric and rechargeable option.

If you want something sleek but still protective.

If you don’t have a smart device in your home yet, consider this Echo Dot to play music and podcasts throughout your house.

Upgrade your television with this smart device that allows you to play all the apps and use voice control to say, “Alexa, play Succession.”

With 11,026 ratings, the people of Amazon must love this bag because it works for both the gym and a weekend retreat in Arizona with the girls. It is thick and durable. One reviewer even wrote, “I have used it as a hospital bag when I gave birth as well as using it as a weekend bag or for hand luggage when I go abroad.”
