If winter weather is wreaking havoc on your skin, I found a few new staples to add to your beauty routine, from a soothing face oil to a gel cleanser formulated for sensitive skin. And if you’re looking to take up a new hobby, scroll on to find discounted Hoka running shoes, an all-in-one flower grow kit, and a bunny-shaped cross-stitch set for beginners.

This mineral-infused thermal water is a French-pharmacy staple for dry or irritated skin. It “delivers a mist fine enough to water an orchid,” according to the Cut’s former beauty director Kathleen Hou.


Another find from a beloved French beauty brand, Bioderma’s foaming cleanser is made from the same ingredients as its beloved micellar water. As a person with sensitive (and acne-prone) skin, I’ve already added this to my cart.

A cross-stitch kit featuring the beloved Dutch bunny rabbit makes for a fun rainy-afternoon activity.

I spotted several pairs of Hoka sneakers in REI’s outlet section. You may have to dig around for your size for some styles, but this orange-and-white colorway is still in stock in men’s sizes 8 through 14.

If you’d prefer a black sneaker, Hoka’s beloved Clifton Edge shoes are also on sale. After Googling “most comfortable shoes,” actress Cameron Diaz told us she “ordered a pair and [has] not taken them off since.”
