July 4 sales are springing up all over the place with new discounts from Target, Calpak, and Ulta. (The deals this year are steep and far-reaching, so we’ve pulled together more of our favorites here.) Amazon is steadily adding early Prime Day deals, mostly on products from its in-house lines, but I have noticed that there are some especially good deals on beauty products from Strategist-approved brands like Cosrx and Drybar. Below are some of my favorites.

Rio Viera-Newton has called Cosrx’s iconic snail-mucin essence “a truly skin-changing product with seriously devoted followers.”

I’d buy this for the color alone, but it helps that Drybar’s detangling hairbrush works on both wet and dry hair — and it’s 40 percent off.

Our best inexpensive (and powerful) HEPA-filter-equipped air purifier is $20 off on Amazon with an on-site coupon.

This stainless-steel trash can comes in four sizes, but this 13.2-gallon, kitchen-size one has the best discount (and no one would ever know that it’s Amazon’s house brand).

Over at Target, I spotted some shatterproof wineglasses that you’ll use well beyond your July 4 barbecue.

Keurig’s single-serving coffee maker is on sale in five colors. It’s perfectly sized for teeny kitchens and dorm rooms and can also make non-coffee drinks like sweet tea or lemonade.

A small fleet of electric scooters is on sale at Target. Most are adult-size and fairly pricey, but I spotted this fun option for kids at $40 off.

Select styles at Levi’s are 50 percent off through July 5 — including our favorite mom jeans. “Where they elevate the ‘mom’ look is through the booty,” says style blogger Hailey Rizzo, “whether you’re working with one or not.”

Youthforia’s color-changing blush goes on clear, then reacts to the skin’s natural pH for a rosy, unique-to-you flush.

If you’ve already been using a 10 percent vitamin-C serum and want to bump up to something a bit stronger, we love this option from Vichy. It contains 15 percent vitamin C as well as hyaluronic acid to help moisturize skin.

To further treat dark spots or hyperpigmentation, several dermatologists we spoke to recommended these exfoliating-peel pads. The combination of alpha-hydroxy and beta-hydroxy acids decreases pigment production and can even out skin tone.

Calpak has discounted a selection of its best-selling luggage and travel accessories for its July 4 sale. These wavy-printed packing cubes come in both blue and pink.

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.
