Should chillier temperatures be starting to take their toll, never fear: We found lots of Strategist-approved deals to help you beat the January blues. There’s an extra-gentle face wash for sensitive skin, some vintage-inspired jeans with a flattering high-rise, and an Apple Watch for under $200.


If you’ve yet to upgrade, the second-generation Apple Airpods (with the wired charging case) are back down to $110 over at Amazon, the cheapest we can find them online right now.

For those getting serious about their fitness this year, the Apple Watch Series 3 can track your heart rate, sleep schedule, activity levels, daily steps, and a whole lot more. (And for a limited time, it’s $110 off at both Walmart and Best Buy.)

Kin Euphorics Lightwave (8-Pack)
$33 for 8
$33 for 8

This smooth, sparkling (and non-alcoholic) beverage from Kin Euphorics is made from a blend of lavender, vanilla, smoked sea salt, apple, ginger, and clove that resembles a spiced herbaceous ginger beer. It also contains relaxing nootropics like L-Theanine, L-Serine, and L-Tryptophan.

Casper Silk Pillowcase

Casper is taking up to 50 percent off select bedding, pillows, mattresses, and more as part of their Biannual Bedtime Sale, including this rust-colored pillowcase. It’s made from 100 percent mulberry silk that can help protect hair and skin from friction damage.

And this (matching) weighted blanket, which is still in stock in 10-pound, 15-pound, and 20-pound weights.

There are still lots of gems to be found in Ssense’s end-of-season sale (especially in its “Everything Else” section), like some status-y Thom Browne–branded pencils.

According to Strategist beauty writer Rio Viera-Newton, HoliFrog cleansers are a great way to clean your skin without stripping or irritating it. With a formula that includes anti-inflammatory ingredients like probiotics, Omega-3, and vitamin E, it’s an excellent neutral wash that’s especially great for sensitive skin. (It’s also a favorite of our friends at The Cut.)

Abercrombie & Fitch is taking an extra 20 percent off markdowns through the end of today, this hooded puffer included. Several reviewers note that despite the product name it’s fairly light yet exceptionally warm.

We’re in something of an Abercrombie & Fitch denim renaissance these days. These relaxed, dad-fit ones have an extra-flattering high-rise and are still available in three different inseams.

Finally, Mansur Gavriel just added lots of new styles to its sale section, like this peony-pink cross-body. It has a detachable cross-body strap and more than enough room to fit a phone, keys, mask, and card case.

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.
