Despite today’s frigid temperatures, our sweep through the internet’s sale bins upturned lots of deals to help you make the most of the warmer weather to come. There’s a ’90s-inspired cardigan that’s fit for layering, a handy cold brewer for iced coffee at home, and an excellent deal on a TikTok-viral dog-grooming gadget.
This TikTok-famous foundation balm from KVD Beauty has a full-coverage formula that can brighten even the darkest of under-eye circles. Through tomorrow, it’s 30 percent off as part of the brand’s Friends and Family sale.
Lots of rarely-on-sale Boy Smells candle sets are 25 percent off at Nordstrom (any of which, might we add, would make a thoughtful Mother’s Day gift). The brand’s crowd-pleasing Les scent is warm and floral, with notes of blackcurrant, peach blossom, Asian pear, coconut, and cardamom.
A perennial Strategist favorite for both men and women, UGG’s Tasman slippers are made from breathable suede and shearling, with a lightly treaded sole that can be worn indoors and out. They hardly ever go on sale, but for a limited time, the black and chestnut colorways are 25 percent off.
Madewell is offering an extra 20 percent off select sale styles with code SALEONSALE and free shipping for Madewell Insiders. (Membership is free and requires an email address.) We’d put that discount toward this cotton-blend cardigan, which can be layered over the matching cami or worn buttoned up as a top.
Just in time for cold-brew season, here’s a truly excellent deal on a Bodum cold brewer. Reviewers call it “life-changing” for at-home brewing, with one writing that it makes “great coffee, with no [grounds] sneaking in.”
Today only, Urban Outfitters is taking 50 percent off select in-season styles, including these chunky Sorel sneakers. They’re made with a mix of eco-friendly materials and feature a hiking-friendly rubber outsole with high traction.
With a double-sided lifted top, sliding drawer, and hidden tablet holder, this minimalist desk has more than enough storage to keep your work materials out of sight when you’re off the clock.
If you’re ready to get started on some spring cleaning, Mrs. Meyer’s multi-surface cleaning concentrate can be used on hardwood floors, tile, countertops, and even walls. (After all, what can’t she do?) I’m a fan of the brand’s rosemary fragrance, which smells like something you’d find at Aesop — It’s herby, fresh, and a little spicy.
Apple-cider vinegar is said to offer myriad health benefits, from boosting immunity to stabilizing blood sugar. The problem is it’s not exactly pleasant to drink, which is why singer Belinda Carlisle started taking these gummy supplements instead. “They don’t give me that burning sensation in my stomach,” she says. “Now my problem is not eating the whole jar because they’re so good. They taste like Haribo.” Today only, the gummies are 30 percent off on Amazon.
And with April showers to come, you’ll be glad to have this TikTok-viral paw washer on hand after muddy dog walks.
