Skin Care

la mer
Radiant, Hydration Set — $95.00

Originally $155, now $95

La Mer has been a luxury bathroom cabinet staple (for those who can afford it) since the ’60s.

If you’ve never tried La Mer, now’s your chance without completely breaking the bank: This discounted set includes the Treatment Lotion (a foundational serum that leaves skin plumped and refreshed), The Renewal Oil Face Oil (an ultra hydrating oil that softens and brightens), The Cleansing Foam Face Cleanser (a gentle face wash that uses ingredients like sea algae fibers and white pearl powder), and the one and only Créme de la Mer Moisturizing Cream (you can read more about it in detail here).

Originally $205, now $144

This celeb-beloved exfoliator takes skin from blah to bright in minutes—and many say it rivals the results of a professional facial.

Start with using once a week.

Athleisure

spanx
Spanx, Faux Leather Leggings — $65.00

Ugg, Nya Short Pajamas — $59.00

alo
Alo, Muse Ribbed High Waist Sweatpants — $66.00

Fitness

slowtide
Slowtide, Mauka 2-Piece Yoga & Fitness Towel Bundle — $58.00

Originally $87, now $58

If you love hot yoga (or just get really sweaty during yoga, because same), try a yoga towel. Drape one (it comes in a set of two) over your yoga mat (this isn’t a mat, BTW! Just a towel that’s perfectly sized to fit right over your mat), and let it absorb all that sweat so that your mat doesn’t turn into a petri dish of epic proportions. Made of soft cotton, the fabric still prevents you from slipping and sliding as you go from upward to downward dog. Just throw the towels in the washer when you’re done.

therabody
Therabody, Theragun Mini Wave Duo, Mini & TheraOne with CBD Bundle — $298.00

Originally $471, now $298

Perfect for travel, the Theragun portable Mini and Wave Duo fast-tracks muscle recovery and feels oh-so-good when you’re sore. The TheragunWave Duo Smart Vibrating Roller is ergonomically designed to be applied to the back, spine, and neck and is powered by five vibration frequencies you can choose from—plus the wavy grooves give you just the right amount of pressure to release tightness and give you better movement the next time you’re exercising. And the Theragun Mini is a smaller version of the Theragun, but offers just as much power.

With this set, you also get a CBD body balm stick and CBD lotion—both can help ease pain and inflammation, and feel ultra soothing (this is also thanks to the menthol-infused formula).
