No joke—three of my favorite things in the entire world are beauty products, sales, and ordering things on Amazon. So naturally, Amazon Prime Day is like my version of Christmas, Hanukkah and my birthday wrapped into one two-day extravaganza.

For anyone who is slightly less bedazzled by Amazon than I am and wondering what the heck I’m talking about, Prime Day is 48 hours worth of deals on items all across the site. Considering Amazon literally has everything you could ever possibly need (and a whole lot of stuff you definitely don’t need, but will still probably buy anyway), you’re pretty much guaranteed to find something worth adding to your cart.

Obviously, the things that excite me, a beauty editor, the most about the whole event are the beauty deals. And while scrolling through this year’s offerings, I was absolutely pumped to discover that a whole lot of the things on sale are ones that I actually already use in my everyday routine. Scroll through for a few of my favorites, and get ready for a big overnight shipment to show up on your doorstep come July 17.

Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain ($28)

The OG clean beauty brand is offering 30 percent off of their Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain, which I recently started using every day. Its creamy consistency ensures that it looks gleamy all day long. You can also get the brand’s Smooth Affair Facial Primer for the same Prime Day discount.

Ethique Beauty Bar ($10)

We’re all about that #zerowastelife here at Well+Good, and Ethique has got all of the products to make that possible. Their sustainable beauty bars—which come in cardboard packaging, and different versions can be used on your face, hair, and body—are 30 percent off in honor of Prime Day.

Eterno LED Device ($209)

I post to my Instagram story about this magical device at least once a week, and give it major credit for helping to heal a scar on my face. It uses LED technology (…the same technology that NASA uses to grow plants in space, apparently) to boost collagen, which helps remove spots, pigment, and lines from your face. It’s 30 percent off in honor of Prime Day, bringing the price down to $209 from the usual $299.

HiMirror Mini ($101)

Real talk: This mirror scored higher on its SATs than I did. It’s so smart, it does things like offer an in-depth analysis of your skin, and you can connect it to Spotify, Instagram, Facebook and Alexa. I like to use it to watch video tutorials, which makes doing my makeup a whole lot easier than if I were left to my own devices.

Yuni Beauty Shower Sheets ($15)

I probably shouldn’t be so open with the Internet about how infrequently I shower after the gym, but holy. moly. I love these things so much. They smell like peppermint, and leave me feeling oh-so-fresh all day long after a single swipe around my pits. TBD on how much, exactly the shower sheets will be discounted (they’ll be part of one of the “lightening deals), but the rest of Yuni Beauty’s products will be 10 percent off.

Australian Gold SPF 30 Continuous Spray ($11)

I’ve been spraying myself with this stuff all summer (yes, even on days when I’m not at the beach) and could not be more in love. It keeps me from getting burned, but also because the smell of it makes me feel like I’m on vacation… even if I’m only spritzing it on for my 10 block walk to work.

L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara ($5)

I’ve already written a full-on love letter to this product so I won’t bore you with a long, drawn out monologue about how great it is, but let me just tell ya: It’s freaking amazing, and I recommend it to anyone and everyone, whether or not they ask. It’s 30 percent off in honor of Prime day, and so is the primer from the same collection.

Kitsch Velvet Scrunchies ($9)

I keep these velvet scrunchies everywhere: At my desk, in my purse, next to my bed…you get the picture. I love that these don’t crease my hair, and also make a cute accessory when I leave ’em on my wrist. They’ll be available for 25 percent off throughout Prime Day.

Beachwaver Pro 1.25 ($159)

I was 27 years old when I finally (finally, finally) learned to curl my hair (…okay, it was exactly five weeks ago), and it was all thanks to the Beachwaver. For real.  In honor of Prime Day, the Beachwaver S1 and Beachwaver Pro will be 20 percent off, which means you too can finally know the joy of walking out of your house with DIY curls on your head.

HAUS Makeup Kits ($49)

While everything else on this list are things I use religiously, this last one is something I cannot wait to try. Lady Gaga’s new beauty brand, Haus Laboratories, will be available for pre-order for the first time ever in honor of Prime Day—despite the fact that it doesn’t officially launch until September. The line consists of six curated makeup kits, priced at $49 each. They’ll probs sell out quickly, though, so be sure to click quick.

No but like, we love Amazon. Here are the sheets you can order on the site that will make you feel like you’re sleeping on a cloud, and a $20 dress that will be the only thing you want to wear all summer.
