I spent the first part of my career as a buyer for QVC, and one of my favorite parts of my job was procuring items for day-long programming.
“Event days,” as they were called, were fast-paced, exhilarating, and so much fun.
Amazon Prime Day has a similar feeling, so I’m excited to cover the sale here on The Well Dressed Life.
I will say, though, that this is the most overwhelming sale to navigate.
If you’re looking for something specific, for example, I need a new vacuum, you’ll find a great deal.
But unlike other big sale days, I don’t think this one is fun to browse.
There’s A LOT you don’t need.
By the time I finished up yesterday, I was in sensory overload.
So here’s what I did.
Yesterday we featured our top Fashion Picks, these are stylish, affordable items that will help build out your wardrobe, and they don’t look like they can from Amazon – you know what I mean 😉
Today, I’m highlighting their beauty deals because there are a lot of savings to be had on premium brands that we already love.
I use all of these products, with two new items I’m excited to try thanks to our readers recommendations.
Let’s go shopping …
Amazon Prime Day Best of Beauty
ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm
This has been on my to-try list for months so I scooped it up yesterday.
A cleansing balm is step one of your nighttime double cleanse, designed to remover all the makeup and grime from the surface of your skin.
This one has almost 10,000 five star reviews, which is bananas.
Paulas Choice–SKIN PERFECTING 2% BHA Liquid Salicylic Acid Exfoliant
After our article last month about Skin Cycling, readers wrote in and raved about the Paulas Choice BHA Salicylic Acid Exfoliant.
And today it’s on sale for $27.00.
I ordered it to try as a much less expensive option to the GoopGlow Exfoliant Dark Spot Sleep Mask I’ve been using, which I like, but I don’t love for the price.
LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask
I love the LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask in Berry, and so do my teenagers.
We all have one on our bedside table.
It’s thick and feels luxurious.
And at the prime deal price of $16, you can pick up a few for stocking stuffers.
Vichy LiftActiv Vitamin C Serum
If you are considering incorporating Vitamin C into your skincare routine, Vichy LiftActiv is a fantastic and affordable option.
It’s under $20 on Prime Day and has over 10,000 five star reviews.
There are a ton of benefits to using Vitamin C in your morning routine, including brighter skin, boosted collagen and therefore a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
Pro tip: Keep in your fridge to help delay the oxidation process and always use with a sunscreen of at least SPF 30.
REN Clean Skincare – AHA Facial Toner
The REN AHA Facial Toner is a bottom of the jar product for me. I use every last once.
And it’s become a Reader Fave too.
I use it in the morning, after cleansing and before serums and creams to help even out my skintone.
My skin texture has improved and it’s also helped with pigmentation.
Kopari California Glow Enzyme Exfoliating Face Scrub
I started to use the Enzyme Exfoliating Face Scrub by Kopari, in April and I adore it.
It’s very gentle.
After using it, my skin isn’t bright red, which is a good thing.
And it’s effective at leaving your skin feeling soft and smooth without drying it out. In addition, it’s somewhat moisturizing on its own.
I use it two – three nights a week.
Vanity Planet Aira Ionic Facial Steamer
This Facial Steamer from Vanity Planet is proving to be one of my best beauty purchases in a while.
Face steaming is a great way to “open” up your pores so you can get a deeper cleanse and remove built up dirt and grim. It helps detoxify your skin and increases circulation.
The box says to use it 2-3 times a week, which seems lovely but not realistic. For now, I do it on Sunday during my weekly reset and I can see a difference. Plus, it feels wonderful.
It’s an incredible deal on Prime Day, with a savings of 64%.
Tri-Fold Lighted Vanity Mirror
My daughter has this on the desk in her bedroom, and I’ll admit I use it frequently.
It’s super lightweight, gives 2 – 3 times magnification and 23 LED lights, so you everything, whether you want to or not.
Prime Days Sale price is awesome at only $24.
REVLON One-Step Volumizer PLUS 2.0
