Think of today’s micro-sales roundup like a virtual errand run: We found lots of excellent deals — many of which we’ve written about before — on basics for your home, wardrobe, and medicine cabinet. There’s our favorite cleanser for oily skin, a gentle laundry detergent for delicate sweaters, and an under-$15 bralette for busts large and small.

Now through April 4, Ssense is taking 15 percent off select items (and offering free shipping) with code SS2022. It’s not the biggest discount, but it’s enough to make us finally pull the trigger on Aesop’s classic hand wash. Because of its moisturizing formula and delectable citrusy scent, it’s one of the most stolen bathroom soaps in NYC.

If you’re getting ready to pack up your winter sweaters for the season, this extra-gentle fabric shampoo is a longtime Strategist favorite. It’s an excellent (and cheaper) dry-cleaning alternative, and because it has a fresh cedar scent, it doubles as a natural moth repellent.

The perfect size for soups and sides, this little Dutch oven is made from lightweight carbon steel that makes it more heat responsive than cast iron — resulting in faster, more even cooking.

This stoneware mug has a dishwasher-safe claylike finish and can hold up to 9.5 ounces, which is ample room for coffee or hot chocolate.

Parade is taking up to 50 percent off select styles, including its best-selling triangle bralette. It’s still in stock in a variety of colorways and most cup sizes, ranging from A to F. (Note that larger sizes come with wider straps for extra support.)

A few pairs of the brand’s high-rise underwear are also included in the sale.

CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser
From $15
From $15

According to several dermatologists we’ve spoken to, this CeraVe cleanser — which is formulated with hydrating ceramides, hyaluronic acid, and niacinamide — removes oil without causing dryness, making it the best overall option for those with oily skin.

If warmer weather has made it a little harder to focus at work, these Olly gummies are formulated with brain-boosting Alpha GPC, ginseng, and B vitamins to aid with concentration.

Whether you plan to use it for sucking up crumbs or cat litter, small messes are no match for this cordless handheld vacuum from Strategist-favorite brand Eufy.

Finally, here’s a truly excellent deal on a leather shoulder bag from Coach. It’s large enough for schlepping daily essentials like water, snacks, books, and even an iPad. Plus the zipper top makes it carry-on friendly.

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.
