The sale to shop this weekend is Dermstore’s Anniversary Sale, where you can find deals on Strategist-approved dry shampoo, affordable vitamin C serum, and even the highly coveted NuFace. I also found savings on all the back-to-school essentials, from insulated lunch containers to our favorite kids’ underwear (if they’ve outgrown theirs over summer break). And if your wardrobe could use an end-of-summer refresh, scroll on to find basics from Amazon’s apparel line, Hanna Andersson pajamas, and a sweater for your pup. As always, make sure to sign up for our email newsletter for even more sales coverage (and five extra deals selected by yours truly every Friday).

Everything is 30 percent off at Outdoor Voices with the code SUMMER30. This exercise skort was spotted multiple times by Strategist senior writer Liza Corsillo during her day-long pickleball-watching investigation at Wollman Rink.

These buttery-soft lounge shorts (and matching top) are available in a wide range of sizes, from extra-extra small through extra-extra-extra large.

Send your kid back to school with this compact Thermos, which comes with a reusable spoon and a name tag. Strategist writer Lauren Ro says it’s “a lifesaver” when going on all-day excursions with her picky toddler.

Here’s a matching water bottle that keeps drinks cold for up to 12 hours.

A selection of summery and back-to-school styles from Amazon’s in-house clothing line is up to 40 percent off through August 31. This cute belted midi dress works at the office and Labor Day Weekend barbecues (and comes in seven colors).

Here’s a pair of well-reviewed shorts available in 23 different shades.

A few of Leesa’s memory-foam mattresses are on sale at Amazon. The Studio is the affordable, pressure-relieving cousin of the Strategist-approved Original model, and now it’s just $554.

This Herman Miller–esque furniture set is made from all-natural bentwood and can transform from a workbench to a seating bench to a table to a desk. Plus, the chairs tuck neatly underneath the workbench for easy storage.

Samsung’s coveted Frame smart TV (that looks like a painting when not in use, as you’ve probably seen on TikTok) is $300 off today.

All kids’ clothing is 30 percent off at Hanna Andersson. Several parents (including Strategist staffers) swayed us to name these organic cotton briefs the best overall kids’ underwear.

Pajamas are even further discounted and come in long-sleeve and short-sleeve options. There are so many adorable patterns to choose from, but this sleepy-animal motif is my favorite.

There aren’t too many adult-size options on sale, but I did find this breezy button-up for just $17.

Thousands of excellent skin-care, hair-care, and beauty favorites are up to 25 percent off at Dermstore with the code CHEERS — including our best (less expensive) vitamin C serum, which is even cheaper.

This mineral sunscreen works to both prevent and treat existing sun damage, since it’s formulated with antioxidants and photolyase enzymes.

Don’t let your sun protection end at your face. This body mist from our beloved EltaMD sprays on white so you can ensure even coverage, then turns clear.

NuFaces’s microcurrent devices have been recommended to us by dermatologistsaestheticians, and celebrities alike. They use low-level electrical currents to increase circulation and encourage lymphatic drainage, leaving you looking well rested and sculpted.

Our favorite scented dry shampoo (that’s also Chris Black approved) includes notes of bergamot, jasmine, and sandalwood. The formula is translucent, allowing it to absorb oil without leaving white spots.

And for giving your hair bit of oomph, three celebrities we’ve spoken to swear by Oribe’s texturizing spray.

These travel-friendly chemical-exfoliating pads from Dr. Dennis Gross use a blend of glycolic, salicylic, and lactic acids, which help with both breakouts and dark spots.

BDG jeans are 30 percent off for the rest of the month over at Urban Outfitters. These cowboy-style mom jeans have a straight leg and the perfect relaxed slouch.

And here’s an on-sale mug to complete your yeehaw ’fit.

From $320

Every architect’s favorite task lamp is 20 percent off at Design Within Reach.

And finally, a wide selection of Little Beast’s stylish dog apparel is up to 50 percent off.

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.
