Now through September 11, you can take $50 off your purchase of $250 or more at Saks Fifth Avenue with code SEPTSGSF. You could put that coupon toward some smoky Byredo perfume or a luxurious tub of La Mer, but we think Augustinus Bader’s The Cream is an exceptionally worthy — and rarely on sale — choice. Victoria Beckham, Ashley Graham, and Alexa Chung are among the many celebrities who swear by it. Chung, who thinks it is “genuinely fantastic,” told the Cut, “After I use it, I feel I look younger, which probably isn’t true, but that’s what it feels like.” Megababe founder Katie Sturino says, “I have actually seen my overall skin quality improve and fine lines decrease.” It’s been recommended to the Strategist a few times as well for dry skin, and as the perfect base for sex-proof makeup. Our writer Jenna Milliner-Waddell, who was surprised to find a sample of it in a Revolve package last year, tried it and attests to how hydrating it is — so imagine what a whole bottle could do. And don’t dillydally: This deal ends on Saturday, September 11.

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.
