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.

It’s the start of a new month, and there are so many beauty sales. Both Fresh and Malin+Goetz are having sitewide sales, and there are so many good deals at Dermstore’s Beauty Refresh sale that we did a whole separate roundup. But I’ve included some standouts here, too. Plus, Shopbop is having a sale-on-sale, Strategist-tested Dickies are 30 percent off, and our eagle-eyed fashion writer spotted Chloé sunglasses that are $280 off. And as always, make sure to sign up for our email newsletter for even more sales coverage — including five extra deals each Friday hand-selected by yours truly.

These “light, crunchy, rich, and not too sweet” Italian candies contain approximately one-third of a shot of espresso encased in a chocolate shell. This megaset contains 60 pieces in total, bringing it to less than 45 cents per piece. Inflation who?

Klorane’s deep-conditioning treatment is half-off at both Amazon and Ulta. Don’t be turned off by the mango: The scent isn’t super, sickly fruity. (That’s according to our editor Maxine Builder, who uses the regular conditioner in this line.)

Vichy’s hyaluronic-acid serum is like a “cool glass of water for the skin,” according to one dermatologist we spoke to about the best moisturizers for oily skin.

Dame’s hands-free Eva vibrator — our favorite for couples — is 36 percent off in this fun papaya color.

One of our best wearable breast pumps is $100 off. It has ultralight, easy-to-clean cups, and can be charged with a regular old USB-C cable.

iRobot Roomba 694 Robot Vacuum

If you’re robot-vacuum-curious, this no-frills Roomba is just $180 at both Amazon and Best Buy.

Use the code EXTRA15 to take an additional 15 percent off already-on-sale items at Shopbop, like these chunky pink Converse high-tops.

Here’s an all-silk Reformation dress that’d be excellent for spring weddings.

Dermstore’s Beauty Refresh Sale began this morning, and thousands of excellent skin- and hair-care products are up to 20 percent off with the code REFRESH. I haven’t seen this best-selling sunscreen on sale in a while, so I suggest you start with that.

One fashion director told the Cut RevitaLash’s signature eyelash serum “makes my eyelashes so long I get comments on them from strangers.”

If you’re prone to ingrowns, Rio suggests using these Fur mitts, which she says made her inflamed skin “calmer, smoother, and less irritated” after just a few uses.

Rio is also a longtime fan of this self-tanning lotion “for the most natural-looking tan possible.”

Everything at Fresh is 25 percent off, no code needed. This soy face cleanser — which is our top pick for sensitive skin — leaves skin “toned and brightened, eliminating an extra step from your skin-care routine,” says makeup artist Sofiia Strykova.

I’m eyeing the brand’s iconic “your lips but better” balm, which comes in 13 shades.

Everything at Malin+Goetz is 20 percent off this weekend with the code CHEERS. I suggest you snap up our best overall shampoo, which our writer Rachael Griffiths says has softened her color-treated hair.

Malin+Goetz’s Dark Rum candle has notes of leather, ripe plum, bergamot, and creamy milk.

Home items are 30 percent off at with the code 30FORU. This set of Dusen Dusen–designed drinking glasses — which you can buy in either white or black — are very cute!

This retro-inspired keychain has three cute Snoopy designs to choose from.

A set of five stretchy silicone produce sleeves for keeping your half-squeezed limes fresh in the fridge.

Strategist writer Erin Schwartz’s pants of choice are 30 percent off. “The pants hang nicely over pretty much any shoe, from Vibram-soled Chelsea boots to chunky dad sneakers,” Schwartz writes. “I also love that the Dickies pants come in a size range from a 38 all the way down to a 26, a rare find in men’s pants.”

And finally, our fashion writer spotted some deeply discounted Chloé at Nordstrom Rack — we especially like these extra-large tortoiseshell sunnies.

The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
