In today’s edition of on-sale products you shouldn’t pass up, we found a waterproof Bluetooth speaker, activewear from Aerie, and our favorite nonstick frying pan. Skinstore’s Friends and Family sale also started today, and you can find a ton of Strategist-approved skin-care products for up to 30 percent off with the code FRIENDS. Finally, today is the last day to shop Nordstrom’s Spring sale; find our picks here, and don’t dillydally.
We spotted a rare deal on the JBL Flip 6 speaker — the newer model of one of our favorite speakers for parties — that brings it to just $100. It’s waterproof, Bluetooth equipped, and would make a nice Mother’s Day gift (hint, hint).
Over at Nordstrom, we found the classic Adidas slides that you’ll wear all summer long.
These airy boxer shorts would also make nice pajama bottoms.
Rio recommends this fuller-coverage concealer from Too Faced for canceling out blemishes.
Skinstore’s Friends and Family started today, and we spotted a lot of Strategist favorites in the mix. This Japanese cleansing oil melts off makeup and is surprisingly gentle and fragrance free, making it suitable for all skin types.
Strategist senior editor Simone Kitchens depends on the classic Tangle Teezer to detangle strands: “Post–shampoo and conditioner, the forgiving plastic bristles detangle my insanely knot-prone curls with ease — no yanks, no tears; 30 minutes later, another pass through air-dried ends gives me that triangular halo-fuzz that I’m forever reaching for.”
“If you ask a group of beauty editors what the best eyelash serum is, chances are they’ll recommend GrandeLash,” says Rio. She credits the serum — which is on sale in the value size — for helping her grow out her “traumatized” lashes within four weeks.
If you have color-treated hair (especially highlights), we suggest picking up this volumizing shampoo, which hairstylist Gregorio Ruggeri uses on clients for an extra dose of hydration. “This whole range is as light as a feather but nourishes, heals, and revitalizes effectively,” he says.
Aerie’s activewear collection OFFLINE is up to 40 percent off until April 17. We like this pair of simple black running shorts …
… But if you prefer patterns, there are a ton of cheerful options.
The best enameled cast-iron skillet is this one from Le Creuset, which deserves just as much family-heirloom status as its Dutch ovens. Strategist dining writer Emma Wartzman uses hers for every meal: shakshuka and fried eggs for breakfast, toast sandwiches for lunch, sautéed beans for dinner.
Our favorite nonstick frying pan is half off for Williams-Sonoma’s Spring Cookware sale. It’s perfect if you’re the kind of person who likes a quick, no-fuss breakfast that you can clean up in a snap: “We go through a ton of eggs, and we use the Zwilling nonstick almost every morning to cook eggs, whether they’re scrambled, fried, or the Spanish-style huevos con puntilla,” says chef Katie Button.
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.
