The Best of Amazon Prime Day Sales

Let me start by saying you don’t need to buy anything.

I have no idea why we’re turning the middle of July into holiday shopping craziness, but here we are.

For some context, last year, the Nordstrom Sale was right after the Fourth of July, and Amazon Prime Days were the following week.

Our community likes shopping both, so I covered both sales, and it was paced out perfectly.

This year, not only are they on the same days, but every retailer under the sun is hosting Black Friday-level events that I’m not even talking about.

You can’t pick up your phone without being inundated with them.

The other night, I had to put mine down because it was just a bunch of talking heads screaming about saving $10 on an air fryer.

Like, calm down.

Anyway, the approach I’m taking this week is two-fold.

The Nordstrom Sale helps you get a head start on Fall, so I shop it for you, knowing I’ll use the best sellers as key parts of outfits going into the new season.

With Amazon Prime Days, I look at it like I’m reporting the news: Here’s what you might like if you want it.

For both days, I aim to help you take advantage of the events and enjoy some savings without getting overwhelmed.

But I’m not going wild.

That’s why I changed our schedule this week. Instead of sending out two emails yesterday and today (one for Nordstrom and one for Amazon), I’m sharing Amazon this morning and picking back up Nordstrom tomorrow.

That’s it.

So let’s get into our one and only feature about Prime Day, and remember, you need to be an Amazon Prime Member to get the savings.

Best of Amazon Prime Day

If you are more organized than me, you might use these sales to get a head start on some holiday shopping. There are, in fact, nice saving on Apple products, the popular Frame TV, the Kindle Paperwhite, etc.

But I’m not done going to the beach yet, so I can’t think even begin to think about Christmas.

For today’s feature, went through all of our Amazon best sellers, and my past orders to come up with a fun guide that has something for everyone.

And don’t forget you can also shop our Amazon Store, where I have all these and so many more saved.

ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm

This is a new favorite of mine that I was persuaded to buy after reading so many glowing reviews.

A cleansing balm is step one of your nighttime double cleanse, designed to remove all the makeup and grime from the surface of your skin. 

This one has almost 12,000 five star reviews, which is bananas.

And if you love the Tatcha Face Oil Cleanser, it’s also part of Prime Day for 30% OFF.


Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm



List Price: $68.00
With Deal: $51.00


Paulas Choice–SKIN PERFECTING 2% BHA Liquid Salicylic Acid Exfoliant

I started using the Paulas Choice BHA Salicylic Acid Exfoliant after hearing praise from dozens of readers and it now has a permanent spot in my skincare routine.

And today it’s on sale for $27.00.

With over 80,000 five star reviews, we’re not alone in our affection – stock up at a great price.

goop Beauty Hair Serum 

I adore this hair serum from Goop. I use it a few times a week, massaging it into my hair and scalp before a workout, then washing it afterward.

My hair has been looking thick, healthy, and fierce lately.

Also, my all time favorite shampoo and conditioner are part of the sale too.

Prime Day Deal: $38.50

BISSELL Little Green Multi-Purpose Portable Carpet and Upholstery Cleaner

I bought the BISSELL Little Green Cleaner at full price last year since I have a house full of filthy athletes (I mean kids) and I still insist on having white furniture.

It’s a godsend, so easy to use, works well, and is perfect for regular maintenance and spot cleaning furniture or carpets.

When I need it, I’m always happy I have it.

For Prime Day it’s $89 down from $123.00.

Solo Stove Bonfire 2.0

The Solo Stove has made it to many of our Gift Guides last year.

No exaggeration, it is my husband’s favorite thing in the world, and we tease him about it constantly.

But it really is great, so much so we’ve taken it on vacation to have bonfires on the beach and use it regularly on our patio. We’re on the East Coast so this extends our outside living well past Halloween.

We even gave it to my husbands parents for Christmas last year, so if you’ve had your eye on it, nows the time to get it and save about $100.

Prime Day Deal: $249.99

Raycon The Everyday Bluetooth Wireless Earbuds

I don’t make many rookie parenting mistakes anymore, but one of my more epic dumb decisions was buying our kids Airpods.

It didn’t take long for us to be down to one single pod.

What did we replace them with? Nothing, for a long time.

But eventually I picked up these by Raycom, and now that they are on Prime for $55.98.

I grabbed them for myself for my walks at the shore.

Prime Day Deal: $55.98
List Price: $79.99

Travel Cosmetic Bag

Not sure what stopped me from picking this up but I finally grabbed this chic and functional cosmetic bag.

It comes in eight colors, is waterproof, and opens, so it lays flat – I thought it would be great for travel to keep everything tidy in one place.

And I like how the shape will fit neatly in your suitcase or duffle bag.

Prime Day Deal: $19.19

True & Co Women’s True Body Triangle Convertible Strap Bra

This might sound weird, but, I don’t enjoy my boobs-after-three-kids just out in the wild.

So even when I don’t need a bra, I need a bra to keep them put.

That’s why I like True & Co wireless bras. They are so comfortable.

For days you work from home, or you get home from the office and slip into lounge wear.

They feel like second skin available in a ton of colors.

I wear a size medium.

On Prime Day Deal for $20.

Oversized Half Zip Pullover

You have seen this one me, it’s super chic and cozy.

I throw it over workout clothes to look polished, you can wear it with leggings, or jeans and it looks nice on Zoom.

And it’s under $30 for Prime Day.

I wear it in a size medium.

A few other of our favorites are also on sale. I have this in black stripe on Prime Day for $32, this V-neck Stripe for $32, and this one you’ve seen me in a couple times for $26.


Oversized Half Zip Pullover



Prime Day Deal $28.49
List Price: $49.99

Swimsuit Cover Up 

This is not only my favorite cover up but our best selling.

Most of my girlfriends bought this and love it too.

It just hangs beautifully, is super lightweight, and comes in a bunch of colors.

I appreciate the collar neckline and high low hem.

On Prime Day for $20.


Swimsuit Beach Cover Up



Prime Day Deal: $20.94
List Price: $45.99

PAVOI 14K Gold Plated Lightweight Chunky Open Hoops 

No, seriously, the BEST, simple pair of gold hoop earrings.

And they start at $11 on Prime Day Deal.

I regularly wear the 20mm and just ordered the 30mm for a bolder look.


14K Gold Plated Lightweight Chunky Open Hoops



Prime Day Deal: $11.16
List Price: $15.77

Shoulder Bag with 2 Removable Crossbody Strap

Finally, we love little Amazon bags.

So I ordered this one with two-tone detail and interesting flap detail to wear now and later.

You’re not going to fit a lot in here, but a card case, phone, keys, and lipstick is all I carry on nights out these days.

On Prime Day for Under $30.

Thank you (!!!) for pointing out the over-caffeinated consumption insanity that is happening around these shopping events. Really appreciate your level-headedness. Incidentally, you have helped me create a more useful wardrobe. Specifically I needed more neutrals and basics to balance my edgier pieces, and with your guidance have found some winners. Thanks, Meghan!
