Just a few Memorial Day sales stragglers remain, so hurry if you’d like to get some really good deals at Ban.do, Dermstore, and Pamela Love. I’ve highlighted a few standouts, as well as some other nice deals from across the internet’s sales bins — including wireless cycling headphones, self-tanning drops, and a dual-sided memory-foam pillow.

Isle of Paradise’s TikTok-famous self-tanner is 30 percent off in light, medium, and dark shades. Just mix a few drops into your skin-care product or foundation for a gradual glow.

Tempur-Pedic’s fits-everyone memory-foam pillow is the cheapest it’s been in the last year (and about $5 less than when we featured it as a Deal of the Day last week). The dual-sided pillow is made of the same memory foam used in the brand’s mattresses, so it contours to your head and neck to provide continuous support.

If you, too, are on the hunt for a gift for the dad who spends his weekend biking, I’ve got my eye on these Strategist-vetted wireless cycling headphones. They use bone-conduction technology, which ensures that only the wearer can hear what’s being played, and will never make the wearer sweat, unlike those overwhelming Apple AirPods Max.

It’s the last day to take 30 percent off sitewide with the code WOOHOO at Ban.do. Yesterday, I featured some bags definitely worth buying, but today I thought I’d showcase some highlights from the home-décor section — starting with this kitschy (but cute) dino planter.

Botanica’s flameless lighter was a hit with our readers when I posted about it a few weeks ago. They’re total game changers, and they make great gifts.

If you prefer ye olde analog matches, might I suggest this boot-shaped matchstick holder? It comes in white or pink and includes a starter kit of 25 safety matches.

Dermstore is offering up to 20 percent off select items with the code SUN. This derm-approved vitamin C serum from Obagi Medical contains many of the same ingredients as our best-in-class pick, with an added boost of moisture in the form of hyaluronic acid.

CosRX’s clear hydrocolloid stickers have been one of our favorite pimple patches ever since Rio recommended them in her original skin-care Google doc. “If you pop or pick a zit, put this on immediately afterward, go to bed, and in the morning, you’ll see what I’m talking about and thank me,” she writes.

If your T-zone tends to get shiny this time of year, Supergoop’s Unseen sunscreen is your best bet. Strategist writer Tembe Denton-Hurst likes it for oily skin and describes the consistency as akin to “thin Vaseline” that feels “velvety” on the skin.

Net-a-Porter just added tons of products to its clearance section for up to 50 percent off. Rio introduced us to Ouai’s hair pomade last year, which she reports is excellent for taming flyaways, creating piece-y ends, and sculpting curls into shape.

Pamela Love’s Welcome Summer sale ends tonight, so it’s your last chance to snag heirloom-quality jewelry for up to 60 percent off. Here’s a dainty 14-karat-gold stud to ring in Gemini season. Note that you must enter your email to gain access to the sale.

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.
