This Thursday’s rummage through the internet’s sales bins has unearthed deals on plenty of tried-and-true products we’ve written about before. There’s some expert-recommended shampoo for natural hair, Kelly Ripa’s go-to root cover-up, and the “gold standard” of jeans now that the weather is cool enough to wear them outside.

There’s a ton of excellent beauty deals over at Amazon today, including more than 20 percent off this moisturizing hair treatment, which eliminated one writer’s need for conditioner altogether.

We’ve also heard a lot about Carol’s Daughter Almond Milk shampoo, which comes recommended by experts for detangling natural hair (since it gently cleanses with butters and oils and restores moisture to hair). This set, which is almost 30 percent off, includes the matching conditioner.

If your lips need a bit of moisture instead, here’s a chance to stock up on Maybelline’s Strategist-approved, reviewer-loved Baby Lips. With this discount, they cost a little more than $2 each.

Here’s yet another on-sale drugstore favorite, this time vetted by Kelly Ripa herself. She says L’Oréal’s root cover-up is “the best” because it “requires little effort, looks good, and is so fast.”

Levi’s Ribcage Ankle Jeans
$69
$69

Levi’s is having a friends-and-family sale right now, with 30 percent off sitewide (and free shipping). We’ve called the Ribcage style the “Goldilocks” of jeans for its higher rise, subtle flare at the hem, and comfortable stretch denim. This “broken-in but not sloppy” blue wash is available in nearly all sizes.

Levi’s Men’s 501 Jeans
$35
$35

You can enjoy an additional discount on top of these already on sale 501s. They’re an eternal favorite of the stylish men we speak to, who say the fit and versatility make this style the “gold standard” of jeans.

Here’s another sale on sale for a nice transitional coat as we move into colder weather. This extra-warm, fleece-lined jacket is available in sizes XS to 4X.

Urban Outfitters Gabriella Desk
$289
$289

Elsewhere on the internet, Urban Outfitters is taking up to 40 percent off its home goods, from big items, like this sleek glass desk …

… to small ones, like this cute set of crocheted fried-egg and toast coasters.

Anthropologie just added a bunch of new items to its sale, and some of the best deals are on accessories. We especially like these minimalist (but not boring) glass drop earrings.

$100

Or if you’re in the market for a new work tote, here’s a tasteful leather carryall with room for your daily essentials and your spontaneous shopping.

And finally, a delightful chain for keeping your sunglasses (or mask) comfortably close by at all times.
