Don’t let the longer days (or this short week) fool you: There’s still plenty of winter left to get through. With that in mind, we found lots of deals on products that can be enjoyed indoors in today’s sales-bin sweep, like a lightweight moisturizer for acne-prone skin, some apple cider vinegar supplements that taste like gummy bears, and a Theragun dupe for relieving sore muscles.
For a limited time, Urban Outfitters is taking 50 percent off select items including this minimalist, space-saving bookshelf. Reviewers note that you’ll need to use a drill for assembly, but for just $30, it’s well worth the extra effort.
Last fall, Baggu teamed up with L.A.–based artist Joonbug on two totes featuring original prints inspired by roller-skating culture from the ’60s and ’70s. Both are included in the UO sale, and either would be an excellent component of a Valentine’s Day gift bundle.
Apple cider vinegar is said to offer a myriad of health benefits, from boosting immunity to stabilizing blood sugar. The problem is it’s not exactly pleasant to drink, which is why singer Belinda Carlisle started taking these gummy supplements instead. “They don’t give me that burning sensation in my stomach,” she says. “Now my problem is not eating the whole jar because they’re so good. They taste like Haribo.” Today only, the gummies are on sale on Amazon and at Urban Outfitters.
Another today-only deal, Ulta is taking 50 percent off the moisturizer sibling of the Strategist-favorite Peach & Lily Glass Skin Serum. According to Soft Services co-founder Rebecca Zhou, it’s the ideal moisturizer for those with acne-prone skin. “Moisturizers that are oil-based tend to make my acne worse. I’ve rotated through a lot of different gel moisturizers, and I really love this one,” she says.
If your little one could use a new pair of rain boots, these ones are both cute and comfortable. They’re fully waterproof, slip-resistant, and unlike most rain boots, have cushioned insoles with arch support.
And if you’re thinking about giving your walls a bit of a refresh this year, I’d encourage you to ignore Matisse’s Blue Nude and instead pick up this poster from Japan’s Expo ’70, the first world’s fair ever held in the country. The graphics will add just the right amount of color to your wall without overwhelming the space.
