From celebrity-favorite lotions (and lace underwear) to editor-favorite hair towels, there are plenty of discounts to take advantage of today on a range of Strategist best sellers. But act fast: Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale is in its final days, and Urban Outfitters’ own sale ends at midnight tonight.

When we asked actress Kristen Bell for her favorite things, she described this CBD cream (from Strategist-favorite Lord Jones) as a “huge game changer” for nursing aches and pains. “I put it on my back, and honestly, five minutes after I did, I already felt 85 percent better,” says Bell.

We’ve celebrated the fast-drying, frizz-denying properties of this hair towel for years, and it leaves our beauty columnist Rio Viera-Newton’s hair “silky and smooth, with no frizziness” after just 20 minutes. (Hairstylist Beth Weber also suggests it to clients with curly, delicate hair, telling us that “getting great curl definition starts with choosing the correct towel.”)

These intricate, gold-plated scrunchies — designed in collaboration with esteemed printmakers Liberty of London — are also on sale at Neiman Marcus, now for more than 60 percent off.

With a pop-up straw and push-to-open button, these kid-friendly water bottles (made with BPA-free plastic) now work out to just $10 each.

Over at Urban Outfitters, shoppers can take an extra 50 percent off already-on-sale items until midnight tonight. That includes these ’90s-inspired bootcut jeans, which have a hint of comfort-enhancing stretch — for just $15.

For a trendier way to clean up spills and crumbs, we also spotted this fast-drying, mushroom-accented tea towel.

We’re now entering the final days of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and there’s still lots of deals to be found — including Barbara Corcoran’s favorite lace thongs. “I don’t think I’ve ever thrown a single pair out. The stretch material never gives up on you, and they don’t feel like you have underwear on,” she says.

And finally, as fall looms in the distance, Nordstrom is also kindly offering a sizable discount on these subtle slippers from our best overall slipper maker, UGG.

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.
