If you still don’t feel like you have everything you need for summer, the deals below should help you cross those final few things off. In today’s sales-bin sweep, we found lots of seasonal staples including discounted sunscreen, cookware for your next outdoor dinner party, and accessories for every hot girl walk, rain or shine.

Summer essentials are up to 40 percent off at REI, including this SPF moisturizer from an expert-approved brand. It contains zinc oxide to physically block UVA and UVB rays, and dermatologist-favorite niacinamide to further protect and hydrate the skin.

For neighborhood walks and 5K runs alike, these Saucony sneakers are 50 percent off and still available in nearly every size. Sauconys are known for being responsive, meaning they are good for tempo runners, racers, and anyone who prefers a firmer shoe that lets them feel the ground underneath their feet.

If you’d rather work through all of your saved TikTok recipes, Sur La Table is taking up to 60 percent off select items as part of its Midsummer Sale — including this Le Creuset Dutch oven for whipping up a seasonal gazpacho.

And use this traditional mortar and pestle for homemade guacamole.

Using code STRAT20, our readers can get 20 percent off any Clevr latte. Former Strategist writer Chloe Anello came across the brand after testing dozens of instant coffees, and found it to be the best for frothy lattes: “Just add eight ounces of water to three tablespoons of the mix, blend it with a frother for ten seconds, and the included oat milk and coconut cream make it foamier and creamier than any other instant latte I’ve tried.”

Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale is still going strong, and our top-rated fanny pack is part of the sale. I personally have quite the collection of waist and fanny packs, and this Dagne Dover one is a favorite for how lightweight and simple it is. I also agree with Strategist editor Maxine Builder, who says “it also feels a little less sporty, so it’s a nice ‘going out’ option.”

In case of summer showers, you’ll be happy to have these Hunter rain boots on hand. Experts love the brand because its boots are stylish and easy to clean, and this specific pair — with its speckled sole and color blocking — is no different.

Tend Skin Solution

Time and again we’ve been recommended Tend as an aftershave, particularly for preventing and treating ingrown hairs. It’s a favorite among barbers and celebrities, including Alfonso Ribeiro, who has used it for years. “When I was doing Fresh Prince, I would end up with a face full of ingrowns after every shave,” he told us. “My makeup artist or barber or whoever would have to pick them all out. But the Tend Skin now takes care of that. I cannot shave without it — and I won’t shave if I don’t have it. I’ve got the big jugs at my house to make sure I don’t ever run out.”

Finally, we found one of Rio Viera-Newton’s favorite hyaluronic-acid serums on sale for 50 percent off at First Aid Beauty. Unlike other HA serums, she says this one absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave the skin greasy.

The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape.
