With sizable discounts on brands that hardly ever go on sale, it’s safe to say the state of sales is truly excellent as we close out the week. There’s a cult-y hand cream (that ships for free), actually stylish storage baskets, and a breathable cotton bralette for warmer weather ahead. As always, if you want even more deals sent straight to your inbox, sign up for our email newsletter.

Fenty Beauty Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush

Now through March 28, Fenty Beauty is taking 25 percent off sitewide, with no code required. Several makeup artists recommend this cream blush, which is buildable, nonsticky, and lightweight enough for everyday wear.

Fenty Beauty Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation

Another foolproof choice is Fenty Beauty’s medium- to full-coverage foundation, which won Allure’s Best of Beauty in 2018 for its long (long) wear capabilities and weightless, velvety matte finish.

Apple AirPods Pro

We caught Apple’s AirPods Pro dropping back down to $175 this week, after hovering around $190 for most of this month. The price will inevitably jump back up, so as we say: Don’t dillydally.

Bedsure Calming Pet Bed

Available in three different colors (and four sizes), this top-rated donut pet bed is ideal for cats and dogs of all sizes who like to curl up.

Hu Organic Dark Chocolate Bars (4-Pack)

While it may still seem a bit of a splurge to buy this paleo-friendly Hu chocolate in bulk, it’s actually an excellent deal. That’s because one bar will set you back as much as $8 at your nearest bodega, and this four-pack works out to just $3.75 per bar.

Moleskine Classic Ruled Notebook (Sapphire Blue)

For its pebbly smooth cover and thick, bleed-resistant pages, we included this Moleskine in our roundup of the 100 best notebooks you can buy online. It’d make a thoughtful Mother’s Day gift for the mom who’s a writer, teacher, or avid to-do-lister.

Year & Day Ceramic Plates (Set of 4)

Now just $6.50 each, these locally sourced dessert plates are made with a rimless design, coupe shape, and a semi-matte glaze finish.

Kosas Mixed Metals Trio 10-Second Eyeshadow

As seen on TikTok, these fast-drying eyeshadow sticks (from rarely on-sale Kosas) create a watercolorlike effect over the eyes for a subtle shimmery look. The set includes Globe, a neutral champagne, Supreme, a warm glittery gold, and Astronaut, a cool silver.

Act+Acre Cold Processed Conditioner

Rich in antioxidants, this conditioner from Act+Acre contains natural ingredients like ylang ylang, vetiver, rosemary, lavender, and amaranth oil to help protect your hair from damage. It’s a favorite of Brooklyn-based stylist Chelsey Pickthorn, who told us the “balanced” formula doesn’t strip or weigh down hair.

Aesop Resurrection Aromatic Hand Balm

Ssense is still taking 15 percent off select items with code SS2022. Fifteen percent isn’t the largest discount, which is why we’d put that coupon toward the brands that rarely host their own sales — like Aesop. If you (or a discerning friend) are a fan of the brand’s cult-y Resurrection hand wash, this creamy hand balm features the very same mandarin, rosemary, and cedar scent.

Skims Cotton Jersey Triangle Bralette

Skims styles are also fair game, like this triangle bralette made from comfortable cotton. It’s still in stock in sizes XXS to XXL, though we suspect not for long.

Socksss x Wary Meyers Unisex Stripe Organic Cotton Blend Socks

These cotton-blend crew socks (designed in collaboration with Strategist-favorite Portland soap company Wary Meyers) have a thick sole for extra comfort and a thinner top for breathability.

Calvin Klein 3-Pack Boxer Briefs

Refresh their (or your own) underwear drawer with a three-pack of everybody’s favorite Calvin Klein boxer briefs, now 25 percent off.

Open Spaces The Original Medium Wire Sneakers

Open Spaces — the maker of that unavoidable shoe rack — is taking 35 percent off select storage baskets for a limited time. Use these handsome baby-blue wire baskets to store accessories, toys, or even pantry items.

Everlane The Merino Long-Sleeve Polo

Made from soft yet breathable merino wool, you’ll be able to wear this long-sleeve polo all spring long.

Everlane The Canvas Teardrop Tote

Swap out your flimsy, stained tote bag with this durable canvas teardrop-shaped one (now 40 percent off). It’s still in stock in white, black, and the willow-green shown.

Pottery Barn Classic Stripe Cotton Sheet Set

Pottery Barn is taking up to 70 percent off select furniture and décor through the weekend, including this classic cotton sheet set that’ll complement a wide variety of decorating styles.

Pottery Barn Dara Velvet Lumbar Pillow Cover

Tell everyone you found this antique-inspired pillow cover at a flea market.

Benefit Cosmetics 24-HR Brow Setter Shaping & Setting Gel

Finally, here’s a clear brow gel from Benefit Cosmetics that’ll shape and tame brows for up to 24 hours. Through midnight tonight, it’s 50 percent off as part of Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty sales event.
