With discounts on bedding, footwear, skin care, and even hair care, we found something for just about everyone in our sales-bin sweep. There’s an eczema-soothing skin salve beloved by our beauty columnist, some ‘90s-inspired slide sandals that rarely go on sale, and a quick-drying hair towel that eliminates frizz (even with spring-shower humidity).

Our beauty columnist, Rio Viera-Newton, first tried this honey-based Farmacy skin salve after an overenthusiastic application of tretinoin left her face flaky and peeling. She found that her skin responded “remarkably well,” and since then, it has saved her “on multiple occasions … eradicating any dryness while also calming any inflamed, pissed-off skin,” she says. For a limited time, it’s 25 percent off at Farmacy Beauty as part of their Friends & Family sale. (Shipping is only $5, so it’s still the cheapest you’ll find it anywhere online.)

Lots of rarely on sale, perfect for Mother’s Day Boy Smells candles are 30 percent off at Nordstrom Rack. If you don’t think you’ll hit the shipping minimum, this woody-floral scent — infused with rhubarb, pink peppercorn, and tulip — is still available at Nordstrom directly, where it ships free.

If you’ve yet to swap out your flannel sheets, here’s a toile set made from a cooling blend of cotton and Tencel.

This crisp cotton midi dress — now an extra ten percent off with code LASTCHANCE — can be styled up or down depending on your footwear.

It’s not every day we find a merino-wool and cashmere sweater for under $30.

Strategist beauty columnist Rio Viera-Newton says this Aquis hair wrap “not only dries hair in less than half the time it takes with a standard cotton towel” but also “leaves your hair looking silky and feeling soft.”

True & Co makes some of our favorite bralettes for busts large and small. This one comes with convertible straps and removable pads for a customizable fit.

Status-y womenswear brand Miista is offering 30 percent off select styles with code SPRING30, bringing these 90s-inspired leather slides down to under $150. They have an ultracushioned memory-foam footbed that’s lined with genuine leather for extra comfort. (Note that Miista’s sizes are converted from European sizing, which is why only half-sizes are listed.)

And with adjustable Velcro straps fabricated from soft terry cloth, these sporty slides are perfect for wearing poolside.
