Internet shopping D-Day is upon us. It’s time for the annual, discount-filled Amazon Prime Day (October 13–14, 2020) and there are more beauty deals than ever. We parsed a massive Excel document (seriously, there are hundreds of thousands of entries) of deals to find the absolute best deals on moisturizer, liquid eyeliner, devices, shampoo, retinoids, and so much more to add to your carts. Here are the best deals from brands like Mario Badescu, Oribe, NuFace, Bioderma plus lots of others.

J.Lo’s Favorite Moisturizer

In a 2014 interview with Andy Cohen, noted La Mer devotee J.Lo mentioned that she loves this moisturizer.

The Easiest Self-Tanner

Nearly 6,000 Amazon reviews praise this self-tanner for being very easy to use and streak free, with no orange.

Sephora’s Best-Loved Brow Pencil

It’s been reviewed close to 15,000 times at Sephora, comes in ten shades, and it’s on sale now.

AOC’s Favorite Lipstick

The TikTok-Loved Oil-Blotter

TikTokers claim that it works better than oil-absorption sheets, and it’s reusable.

The Best Cleanser For Baby Acne

Thanks to Pinterest, this cleanser became a best seller for its ability to cure baby acne. Close to 4,500 reviewers agree.

The Best Makeup Remover

Hands down, the gentlest micellar water makeup remover loved by everyone from Solange to Pat McGrath.

A Very Trusty Liquid Eyeliner

Liquid eyeliner diehards know that the best time to scoop up this much-loved product is right now, when it’s half off. It’s an OG favorite, with close to 10,000 five-star reviews on Amazon. Plus, in addition to the classic black, multiple fun colors are on sale.

A Hydrating K-Beauty Essence

This is one of the most-loved products on Reddit’s K-beauty forums, praised for its ability to smooth, hydrate, and even speed-up blemish-healing time (just ask K-beauty fanatic Jude Chao, who is on her 12th bottle). And don’t worry, the snails were humanely treated.

The Gentlest Face Cleanser

The legendary soap-free drugstore cleanser is on-sale.

An Aromatherapy Set

Because sniffing a little lavender oil is good for stress.

A Refreshing Mist

A fancy mist that is refreshing and not too expensive. Mist your face like you’re a delicate flower in need of moisture. Tavi Gevinson uses this for breaking out of writing “tunnel vision” or for a refresh when performing.

Acne-Selfie Approved

Ninety-nine percent of the celebrities you see with pimple cream on in their acne selfies are wearing this. It’s made of salicylic acid and sulfur, and internet reviews (close to 2,000 five-star reviews on Ulta) praise it for shrinking blemishes up to 50 percent overnight.

J.Lo’s Favorite Hair Products

Many things Oribe (J.Lo and her beloved late hairstylist list over 12 Oribe products in her rumored “beauty rider”) are on sale (for 30 percent off!) this year for Prime. Among them, the entire Gold Lust range, including this shampoo, the Gold Lust Conditioner, Gold Lust Nourishing Hair Oil (it’s on J.Lo’s list), and the Gold Lust Dry Shampoo.

Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray
$32
$32

Chrissy Teigen loves this combo hair spray–texturizer so much that she once said in an interview, “If you’re a hairstylist and you don’t have that Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray in your kit, I don’t think anything of you.” J.Lo has it on her beauty rider, too. If you’ve never tried anything from Oribe before, let it be this and let it be now.

A Hormonal Acne Fighter

You could formerly only get this acne-fighting retinoid from a dermatologist. Not anymore! There are over 17,000 (yes, that’s correct) five-star reviews for this product on Amazon, praising its ability to zap hormonal and adult acne.

Glow Skin Pads

Rub this pad all over your face before bed and wake up every day with incrementally glowier skin. Compared to other exfoliating pads, these are gentler and won’t sting your face.

The Best-Value Hair Straightener on Amazon

Remington makes some of the most affordable and effective hair tools available on Amazon. This straightener has close to 4,000 five-star reviews.

A Better Flossing Tool

Rather unsexily, this is formally called an “oral irrigator for teeth.” But Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness swears that this will change your flossing game. It will make your dentists and the cavity-prone very happy.

A Humidifier for Winter Skin

$45

Dermatologists all agree that other than moisturizer, humifiers are a surefire way to keep your skin dewy in the cold. Reviewers (close to 8,000 of them giving five-star reviews) talk up this one for its easy-to-use sleep mode, quietness, and ease for cleaning. One review quite simply says,”Saved my skin during winter.”

Some Refreshing Eye Masks

These eye patches are an overall favorite of anyone who tries them and are cooling, de-puffing, and won’t slide down your face

A Face Steamer

If you’d like a little help with loosening the dirt and gunk from your pores, do as your facialist would do, and steam your skin. As an added bonus, the steam is great for sinus relief and this steamer comes with a very cute headband.

The Smell of the ’90s

Grab a bottle for nostalgia reasons or just because you still love the smell. It still has close to 7,000 five-star reviews on Amazon.

A Fancy Winter Moisturizer

It’s on the pricier side, but this moisturizer feels fancy and is so good at soothing dry, parched winter skin. You’ll be glad to have it once it starts getting colder.

A Vibrating Face Massager

Skin enthusiasts and Tracee Ellis Ross (TER) buy these T-shaped, vibrating face tools on Amazon to help better define cheekbones and de-puff the face.

The Instagram Face Tool

If you’ve been seeing people use this microcurrent tool (normally professionally used by facialists and developed to treat Bell’s palsy) all over Instagram, it’s now available for 30 percent off.
