Labor Day sales have come and (mostly) gone, but if you’re still in the shopping mood, Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty sale runs until September 16 with discounts on lots of Strat-approved brands. Fans of cult-y K-beauty brand COSRX should consider snagging this snail-mucin cream, which our beauty writer Rio Viera-Newton calls one of the best winter eye creams: “I suffer from crusty under-eyes, and this product manages to completely eradicate those flaky bits almost immediately,” she writes. Strategist sales editor Sam Daly purchased a jar recently and loves how soothing it is on her “sensitive, acne-prone skin,” and marketing director Jude Chao told our friends over at the Cut that it’s “holy grail material” and a crucial part of her skin-care routine. Through midnight tonight, the cream’s full-size version is 50 percent off, bringing the price down to $13 — that’s $2 less than the price of the travel size.
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.
