Today’s micro-sales roundup is a grab bag of actually good deals — many of which we’ve written about before — for her, him, and the home. There’s an eczema-friendly bodywash that hardly ever goes on sale, an excellent deal on Nike’s fastest running shoe, and some vegan-friendly chocolate for even better Easter baskets.

If you’ve got a few Easter baskets to fill, six packs of Dr. Bronner’s Magic All-One Chocolate — all of which are vegan and Paleo friendly — are an extra $6 off with Amazon’s on-page coupon. (Strategist contributor Ariel Kanter likens them to “flat, sophisticated Reese’s cups.”)

When Strategist writer Dominique Pariso asked the rest of the team for book recommendations yesterday, two writers mentioned Sheila Heti’s latest novel, Pure Colour. “It’s one of those books that kind of rewires your brain,” says writer Erin Schwartz.

Strategist intern Brenley Goertzen says that Dior’s TikTok-famous Addict Lip Glow “intensely hydrates my chapped winter lips while also boosting their pigmentation with one swipe.” (Bella Hadid’s makeup artist is also a fan.) For a limited time, it’s 15 percent off at Nordstrom.

A berry cute shift dress that’ll arrive by Easter.

A favorite among elite marathoners, Nike’s fastest running shoe is on sale. The ZoomX Vaporfly’s sole “incorporates carbon-fiber plates that act like springs,” according to Amanda Freeman, the founder and CEO of SLT and Stretch*d, who told us this design helps professional and amateur runners shave seconds off their personal bests.

Now that the weather’s warming up, swap out your duvet for this lightweight bed blanket made from breathable cotton.

This bodywash from Nécessaire is the only scented soap Strategist contributor Rio Viera-Newton has been able to use without her eczema flaring up. That’s because it “doesn’t foam up in that super-sudsy car-wash way” but “gently emulsifies and washes away,” leaving skin soothed rather than stripped. Now through April 4, it’s 15 percent off at Ssense (and ships free) with code SS2022.

The brand’s unscented body lotion, which Rio calls a “completely neutral, thick moisturizing cream that gives winter skin the nourishment and hydration it needs,” is also included in the sale.

Some 2.5-pound ankle weights that aren’t Bala (and, admittedly, look a little more comfortable).

Finally, here’s an exceptional deal on a shaver from Philips Norelco, the maker of some of our favorite electric razors. It’s cordless and features shelf-sharpening blades that work on both wet and dry skin.

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.
