One of the worst parts of summer is just how heavy the heat and humidity can feel. All season long, I find myself searching for linen clothing, mattifying makeup, and the perfect portable fan to keep me as non-sweaty as possible — so for today’s roundup, as the days get longer and hotter, I focused on finding all things airy and light, including a two-in-one floor fan and air purifier, bouncy Crocs, and an ocean-scented candle.

From $34

The extra-chunky Crocs that Nicole Scherzinger says feel like “getting a massage” are up to 44 percent off, depending on the color.

It’s the last day of the Supergoop! sitewide sale, so stock up on your favorites. If you’re the type to forget your sunscreen, try the brand’s SPF-packed moisturizer. Our beauty contributor Rio Viera-Newton says it makes her skin “bright, radiant, and gleamy without looking greasy.”

If your face leans greasy, not glowy, after applying SPF, we suggest Jan Mirini’s tinted mineral sunscreen. One skin expert told us it’s like adding a layer of “microscopic sponges” for maximum oil absorption.

If your allergies have been acting up, try Blueair’s HEPA-equipped (and actually nice-looking) air purifier. You can cycle through its three levels of filtering by tapping the button on top.

If you don’t have much floor space, this two-in-one fan and air purifier will keep your home cool and pollen-free.

This do-it-all coffee maker from Ninja is 24 percent off today. Strategist writer Arielle Avila regularly uses both the classic brew method and the “specialty” setting, which turns out a thick coffee concentrate similar to espresso. (It can also make iced coffee.)

Ninja’s smokeless indoor grill lets you whip up your favorite barbecue foods without a backyard. The grate can also roast, bake, and broil — or you can use the crisper basket to air fry or dehydrate.

And a matching set for slightly older babies.


I’m a fan of L’or de Seraphine’s scented candles: They last a long time and aren’t too overpowering, and the patterned containers are pretty (and sturdy) enough to reuse once done. I particularly like the beachy Whitby, which has notes of sea salt, violet, and vetiver.


This 14k gold-plated necklace looks far more expensive than it is.

Ulta’s Gorgeous Hair event started on Sunday, so for the next few weeks the retailer will be having half-off sales on a selection of hair-care products — but only until midnight each day. This leave-in conditioner from It’s a 10 detangles, adds shine, and strengthens strands.

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.
