Oh, it’s the most wonderful time of the year. VIB Rouge members at Sephora get 15% off all their purchases with the code ROUGESPRING. The only “major” exclusions are on PLAY memberships and customizable sets, but that’s not what you’ll use the discount on anyway, right?
Here are a few things to think about when you’re adding items to your cart:
Garnier’s Micellar Water has really solidified itself in the beauty market as a must-have product. It was also voted your favorite makeup remover, so its definitely winning over some hearts (I literally use it every day as a makeup remover and toner). Right now, clip the $2.50 off coupon on Amazon and get a 3-pack for $17 when you sign up for Subscribe & Save (you can always cancel).
Or, if you don’t want to do Subscribe & Save, get it for $18, which is still almost $3 cheaper than buying them separately.
Kat von D launched a pretty well-received collab with Too Faced Cosmetics at the end of last year. It was pretty awesome and right now, Sephora has one of the collab’s kits, The Better Together Cheek & Lip Makeup Bag Set, on sale for just $19. The kit includes two of Kat von D’s best-selling lipcolors and two of Too Faced’s best-selling cheek colors.
Or if you need something more eye-focused, Kat von D’s site has The Better Together Ultimate Eye Collection for 50% off.
Clinique’s Chubby Sticks are a great makeup bag staple, and when they launched their collab with Crayola, it was a match made in beauty nostalgia heaven. Right now, pick up a couple of the Crayola for Clinique Chubby Sticks, plus other select Clinique goodies for 50% off, no code needed.
You won’t need to head to Duane Reade to pick up razors ever again, because Dorco will sell you their Shai 6 handle, plus 2 blade cartridges, for just $2 shipped with the code SHAI6417. It’s worth a more than a couple eyerolls for “Technology For Her,” but you can’t go wrong with a 6-blade razor and extra cartridge for $2.
THE BIG SALEs
Aerie may be known for their 10-for-whatever underwear deals and their no-Photoshop promise, but their other items are just as good. Right now, buy any Aerie Collection item and get another for just $10. This includes their super-comfy bralettes and simple swimsuits. I just bought a bikini top and bottom and they’re both my new favorite bathing suit pieces.
If minimalism is your fashion inspiration, then The Dreslyn is your destination. The high-end retailer is on the pricier side, but they’re giving you 25% off the whole site with the code FAMILY for their Friends & Family sale. This includes sale items (though, not final sale items) and their really awesome home goods section.
Need a new pair of shoes? Nordstrom Rack is marking down two pages worth of Sam Edelman heels, sandals, boots and sneakers to much easier-to-swallow prices. Basically, if you’re looking to put something nice on your feet, they have something for you.
There must be something in the air, because J.Crew Factory has had major discounts lately. Use the code SUGARRUSH and take an extra 50% off all clearance items, plus free shipping, which is insane seeing as practically everything is already marked down under $100. Maybe hold off on spring cleaning until after this sale is over.
This $14 OXA canvas backpack will protect your laptop, but won’t make you look like a large child. With nine pockets, including an inner laptop compartment, it’ll make your commute that much easier.
Frank + Oak is known for their attention to detail with staple basics, but if you’re unfamiliar with the brand, that’s alright. Right now, get to know them and stock up on simple styles like denim, tees, sweaters, and outerwear. Use the code BASKETCASE and get 40% off your entire order.
If you listen to any Gimlet Media podcast (Startup, Surprisingly Awesome, Science Vs, etc), you’ve probably heard the Frank + Oak name. Recently they launched their womenswear collection and it’s really, really great. This 40% is sitewide, so newly minted women’s styles are included.
We’ve all had to throw away leftovers or cuts of meat and cheese that spent a little too much time in the fridge or freezer, but vacuum sealing your foods can keep them safe from freezer burn pretty much indefinitely, and dramatically extend their shelf life everywhere else.
It sounds like an expensive proposition, but today only, Amazon’s selling the well-reviewed FoodSaver Starter Kit for just $56, complete with everything you need to get started. Of course you can use this to store meats in the freezer for a long time, but it can also keep cheese from molding, lettuce from wilting, or cookies from going stale, just to name a few examples. Think about how much food you throw away, and you’ll get a sense of just how quickly this purchase could pay for itself.
The following deal takes place between 12 AM PDT, and 11:59 PM PDT:
Today only, you can own every season of 24 (not including this year’s reboot) for just $60, an all-time low. Just note that they’re DVDs, not Blu-rays. Dammit!
If you still haven’t tried out a home theater bias light, there’s never been a better time to pick one up. Vansky’s LED bias light strips plug directly into your TV’s USB port for power, and stick to the back of the set via built-in adhesive. Once you turn your TV on, the LEDs cast a soft glow on the wall behind them, which can reduce eyestrain when watching in the dark, and improve your TV’s perceived black levels.
Our readers have bought thousands of the 35.4" models, but now, you can opt for 80" strips for just a few bucks more. Rather than just stretching them across the top of your TV set, these can wrap all the way around, resulting in a fuller halo of light on the wall behind. You can also cut them to length, if 80" is a little too long.
All you have to do is add two to your cart, and use that code to save $11. If you aren’t familiar, these stick anywhere via an included adhesive magnetic strip, and sense both ambient light and motion to turn on when you need them, and save power when you don’t.
Just note that this model runs on AAA batteries, so we recommend picking up some rechargeables if you don’t already have them.
We see a lot of deals on solar-powered motion-sensing outdoor spotlights, but I don’t think we’ve ever seen a 2-pack for under $10. This isn’t a brand we post very often, but it seems basically identical to similar lights we’ve seen.
AirPods aren’t the only headphones with Apple’s impressive—hell, magical—W1 chip for easy pairing and switching between devices; they added it to the latest line of Beats headphones as well, and all three models are cheaper than ever right now.
The entry-level BeatsX are $30 off, the fitness-friendly PowerBeats3 are $20 less than usual, and Solo3 on-ears (40 hour battery and all) are discounted by a whopping $60. No matter which model you choose, they’ll pair to your iPhone without any fuss, and automatically work with all of your other iCloud-connected iPads and Macs as well. It sounds like a little thing, but as a satisfied owner of AirPods, I can tell you that not having to futz with the Bluetooth settings menu makes a massive difference.
Whether you like to sing in the shower, or want to catch up on podcasts by the pool, this water resistant Bluetooth speaker features IPX7 water resistance, so it can survive a full dunking.
Vantrue’s popular dash cams are back on sale, and this time around, you get to choose from three different models.
The ever-popular Vantrue N1 includes esessential features like 1080p recording, motion-detecting parking mode, and a G-sensor to save your data after a collision, and $53 is the best price we’ve ever seen.
For $27 more, you can upgrade to the Vantrue X1, which features a wider field of view (170 degrees vs. 153) and a larger LCD display.
Or you can splurge on the Vantrue X2 for $106, which gets you either 1080p/60 recording (giving you twice as many frames to get a clear shot of someone’s license plate), or 2560x1440 recording at 30 FPS.
