Today, I spotted a powerful floor fan that also purifies, a pair of durable women’s tennis shoes, and a surprisingly status-y trash can that rarely goes on sale. Plus, Amazon’s Spring Beauty Event has begun, and after some digging, I found some actually good products for your beauty routine, like the leave-in conditioner a pop star swears by and Strategist-approved bath salts. And don’t forget about Nordstrom’s massive Spring Sale, which ends soon: You can check out our entire coverage here.

The Body Shop Shower Gel
From $19
From $19

Over at Amazon’s Spring Beauty Event, you can find a cache of everyday essentials like the Body Shop’s shower gel. It’s cheapest when you buy the pink-grapefruit scent for $13, but it’s also available for $16 in British rose, olive, and satsuma.

Actress and singer Hayley Kiyoko keeps a bottle of this detangling spray in every bag, which she says works well even on extensions and bleached hair. “When I get out of the shower, I spray this in my hair, then I brush it — and then I’m done,” she explains.

Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm - Set of 2
From $9 for 2
From $9 for 2

This two-pack of tinted lip balm from Burt’s Bees is 24 percent off in rose, which model Yumi Nu says she buys in bulk and recommends to all her makeup artists.

PMD Personal Microderm Pro
From $149
From $149

If you’ve wanted to try microdermabrasion, consider this tool from PMD that sucks the gunk out of your skin (and is over 40 percent off).

These bath salts from Ahava (that would make an excellent Mother’s Day gift) are 30 percent off at Amazon in calming lavender. But if you’d like a different scent, everything at Ahava is 25 percent off with the code EASTER25.

One interior designer told us Dyson’s air-purifying floor fan is both “quick to cool and easy on the electric budget.” It’s $100 cheaper today at Amazon, Best Buy, and the brand’s site.

As I noted above, thousands of products are up to 60 percent off at Nordstrom through April 11. These stretchy houndstooth-plaid pants are polished enough to wear to work, but can also be paired with a basic tee for a casual weekend look.

Artist Piera Bochner may have exited the candle-making biz last year, but I noticed a few of her pieces at a deep discount at Nordstrom. In addition to this intriguing Romanesco-shaped candle, there’s also a spiky kiwano, a bitter melon (which Strategist writer Dominique Pariso has kept on her desk for years), and a table gourd — but don’t dillydally, because these won’t come back in stock.

For those who have been personally victimized by the new Barbie trailer.

Shoes, apparel, and accessories are up to 40 percent off at Adidas right now, and I spotted one of our favorite women’s tennis shoes in the mix. Greek pro tennis player Maria Sakkari often wears the Barricade, which boasts lock-in construction of the lacing that molds the tongue to your foot for maximum stability.

Select spring-cleaning-focused products are 20 percent off at Simplehuman through tomorrow night. Interior designers, decorators, and professional organizers all told us that trash cans from Simplehuman are well worth the price — this step model has a sturdy base, an odor-blocking seal, and a smudge-resistant stainless-steel finish.

The brand’s smart shower caddy has adjustable shelves and comes in three sizes that hang over your showerhead, as well as one over-the-door option.

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.
