If you’re just as sleepy as I am this Monday, I’ve got plenty of sales to help you snooze — like Casper night lights, melatonin supplements, and a Strategist-approved vegan-latex mattress. Plus it’s the final week of Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty sale — with many of the same products on sale at Target and Sephora — and you can find a rotating selection of beauty products for half-off until midnight each day.

Several IT Cosmetics serums are half-off until midnight for Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty sale. The Bye Bye Dark Spots serum fades hyperpigmentation fast thanks to its 4 percent niacinamide and 1 percent ethyl vitamin C formulation.

Drag performers the Boulet Brothers told us they use KVD Beauty’s liquid lipstick to achieve their iconic red lip. It’s also half-off until midnight at Ulta, Target, and Sephora (though Ulta has the most shade options).

Here’s a three-pack of smoothing Under Armour undies that won’t leave lines.

With the ongoing end-of-summer COVID surge (plus cold and flu season on the horizon), it’s best to keep some at-home tests on hand. These BinaxNOW tests come two to a box and are FSA-eligible.

Never-out-of-style Sperrys, now more than 50 percent off. But if you would prefer other options, the brand is also offering 30 percent off sitewide (including free shipping) with the code FRIENDS.

One of our favorite all-in-one car seats is 20 percent off at Amazon, Target, and Best Buy. It has six recline options and four configurations that allow it to grow with your child: rear-facing harness seat, forward-facing harness seat, high-back booster, and backless booster.


Casper’s Labor Day sale ends tomorrow night, but I also spotted this sophisticated night light for even cheaper at Amazon and Target.

And here’s the two-pack to kit out your entire apartment.


Here’s another Labor Day sale you can still shop: Everything at Buffy is up to 35 percent off, like this ultra-silky eucalyptus sheet set.

Several calming supplements from Olly are on sale at Amazon. Multiple reviewers say these “delicious” gummies calmed their anxiety in as little as 15 minutes.

Get your full eight hours with these melatonin gummies, which makeup artist Daniel Martin told us he’s “obsessed” with. Olly’s low-sugar sleep aid is also formulated with relaxation-inducing ingredients like chamomile and lemon balm.

The vegan-latex mattress that made the Strategist Sleep 100 is an extra $100 off with the code VOXMEDIA100.

$2,149 at Plushbeds
with code: VOXMEDIA100
