Last year, Amazon offered 30%off beauty purchases; this year I’ve found 30% off luxury beauty products! Prime Day deals start today at 3pm EST and run for 36 hours. And now that Target is having their own one-day sale online, with 25% off beauty (7/17 only), it would seem a safe bet that Amazon will be very competitive. There are so many great beauty buys on Amazon; you can find many of my picks here, and in a previous post, here. My beauty picks* for Prime Day include:
The Maybelline New York limited-edition Balm-Y Day Set is so fun for summer. Includes a Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Primer, Baby Lips Dr. Rescue Medicated Lip Balm in Coral Crave (love!), Volum’ Express The Colossal Washable Mascara in Glam Black, plus a beach towel. Great gift idea! Regular price $29.99, I’ve confirmed this will be offered for $17.99 once Prime Day Deals start!
Sunday Riley Good Genes is a lactic acid treatment, so expect to see results. This powerhouse skin treatment exfoliates, brightens, helps improve hyperpigmentation and clarifies. Overall, your skin glows. I’ve used this serum without burning or irritation, however try a test patch first if you have sensitive skin.
I can’t resist a beautiful eyeshadow palette, and the b-glowing illuminate + shine palette is a stunner! There are 8 neutral eyeshadow shades, plus a cream highlighter and cream base, packaged in a luxe case. It’s available for $18.00 now (it retails for $48). I’ve already ordered mine!
I’ve recently tried Rahua range of products and really like the Voluminous Shampoo. It feels super luxurious and has added volume and shine, without weighing down my fine hair. This is a “clean”, plant-based line, so when using the shampoo, you’re cleansing and detoxifying, leading to healthier hair and scalp.
I’ve heard of so many people having good results using castor oil on their eyelashes; have you tried it? I’m going to take a chance on the Live Fraiche Castor Oil Eyelash and Eyebrow Growth Serum. This is organic, cold-pressed castor oil, and I like that it comes in a mascara-wand delivery system.
Sara Happ sent me a Coconut Lip Scrub to try, and I’m obsessed! It smells like summer in a bottle, plus it helps exfoliate and condition lips. My usually-dry lips are so soft; this will be a year-round favorite!
I spend a lot of time applying makeup, so I’m picky about what I use to remove it. I’ve been recently using the Klorane Floral Water Make-Up Remover with Soothing Cornflower; a 3-in-1 cleanser, toner and make-up remover. This cleansing water removes all makeup, and is gentle enough for sensitive skin. I love that it’s fragrance, paraben, alcohol, and colorant-free, and that there is a pump on the top.
