We’ve uncovered some truly excellent deals on some winter-friendly skin care and a basement-protecting dehumidifier — plus, a preview of Amazon’s upcoming sales event and leftovers from our impromptu dinner-party sale.

In October, Amazon is hosting another two-day shopping event that’s exclusive to Prime members — though this one is called the “Early Access Sale,” not Prime Day. And in an even more confusing move, there’s a preview of this Early Access Sale: It includes this viral Revlon all-in-one hair-dryer brush that’s over half off.

From $30

Also part of the preview are these magnificent camouflage Crocs, which are up to 43 percent off depending on the size.

Dehumidifiers are great for poorly ventilated bathrooms and basements. This 35-pint one works for larger spaces up to 2,000 square feet — and it’s 31 percent off for today only.

A very on-sale rash guard that will protect your skin from UV rays during a swim session.

Actress and comedian Yvonne Orji “loves going to the bathroom” after installing this bidet during a home renovation. The electric model has an adjustable heated seat, a warm-air dryer, and is $100 off until October 2.

Colorful tapered candles to add some finishing touches to your dinner-party tablescape.

Strategist writer Arielle Avila says these wedges are an affordable dupe for the hyped Maryam Nassir Zadeh Olympia heels: “They’re fun, versatile, and comfortable (for heels), and most importantly, I don’t feel bad if they get a little dirty since they were under $50.”

Just as the weather’s getting a little chillier and you might want to start spending more time on the couch, this interior-designer-approved faux-fur throw is 25 percent off in both white and gray.

La Roche-Posay’s entire Toleriane line — which is formulated specifically for dehydrated, sensitive skin — is on sale through October 1 at Ulta. Ami Dalal, a certified physician assistant with Schweiger Dermatology Group, recommends this face wash for dry skin as it contains glycerin, which is “a wonderful ingredient that helps hydrate your skin without the overproduction of oil.” It’s also great for Accutane users.


Or if you have dry skin and acne, this dermatologist-recommended gel cleanser is 30 percent off.

You can still shop some of the picks from our impromptu dinner-party sale — including these celebrity-approved Hu Kitchen chocolate bars. Actress Brenda Song keeps these almond-butter dark-chocolate bars in her purse at all times, and they’re still 20 percent off with code STRAT20.

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.
