In today’s sales mishmash, you’ll find the fits-everybody lipstick TikTok is obsessed with (and we’ve been raving about since 2017), a sitewide sale on sustainable (and actually affordable) denim, and a SodaStream bundle for sparkling water at your fingertips. Plus it’s the last day to get up to 30 percent off Strategist-approved skin-care, hair-care, and beauty products during SkinStore’s Friends and Family sale, so don’t dillydally.

“If you’re looking for maximum fizz with minimal effort, this is the machine to buy,” says Strategist editor Maxine Builder. For just $70, you get the SodaStream, a replacement carbon-dioxide canister, and Bubly lime-flavored water drops.

We can’t say how sturdy or comfortable these silver sandals might be, but they do have over 4,500 five-star reviews — so we think it’s worth the risk, especially at 20 percent off.

We admit that this is a bit niche, but this smart sprinkler system would be a great gift for the right type of person. You can input details such as sun exposure and plant type to make sure your lawn is using the correct amount of water. Plus the device tracks the weather, so it knows to skip watering on rainy days.

If the fluctuating weather has you down, consider installing this smart — and on-sale — thermostat. Unlike other devices, the T9 can automatically determine when someone is nearby, so you aren’t basing your overall heating and cooling settings on empty rooms.

Warp + Weft VVI Denim Short

Warp + Weft makes sustainable and affordable denim — that’s available in women’s size 00 through 24 and men’s size 28 through 42. It’s even more affordable today when you use the code EARTHDAY25 to take 25 percent off everything, including new arrivals like these light-wash jorts.

It’s the last day to get up to 30 percent off thousands of beauty and skin-care products during SkinStore’s Friends and Family sale. This collagen-packed cleansing balm melts away “even the most stubborn mascara without stinging or clouding the eyes,” according to makeup artist Jenny Patinkin.

This hair-dryer brush, which has a built-in ion generator for frizz-free styling, is the cheapest we’ve ever seen it.

Kitsch is offering 25 percent off sitewide on its line of Strategist-beloved hair-care and body products with the code 25OFF. Hairstylist Marie Elizabeth finds this microfiber towel effective at reducing hair breakage, particularly if you have fine hair.

We named this the best bar soap that effectively exfoliated while still being gentle. Sugar and walnuts act as a natural micro exfoliant, and coconut oil adds moisture (and a bit of shine) to the skin.

We’ve been raving about Clinique’s Almost Lipstick since 2017 — way before its cultlike status on TikTok — when our former fashion editor wrote an ode about the “black turtleneck” of lipsticks. It’s just $15 — the cheapest I’ve ever seen it — at both Nordstrom and Target.

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.
