It’s here: Amazon’s annual two-day blowout sale. This year, Prime Day begins at midnight PST on Tuesday, October 13th, and will run until midnight on Wednesday. Even though the sale is technically two days long, the best products across all categories tend to sell out fast — so it’s best to be prepared with your shopping list. The Prime Day beauty deals run the gamut from nourishing cleansers for soothing and clearing dry skin to high-tech microdermabrasion devices and ergonomic beard trimmers — and some of my favorites start at just $7.
If Amazon, the place where you stock up on sheet pans and bug spray, seems like an iffy place to buy beauty products, prepare to be surprised. In recent years the site has become a catch-all for not only classic drugstore beauty lines like Covergirl and L’Oreal, but also more obscure and affordable makeup lines as well.
In addition to having all the luxury dupes you could ever need, the site has actually brought on a handful of high-end lines and physician formulated products. Needless to say, there’s something here for everyone — and for the next two days, you might just find your thing on sale. If you’re looking to stock up your medicine cabinet with some tried-and-true staples, test out a new mascara or face serum, or want to get a head start on gifting, read on.
And after that, stop by our list of everything that just went on sale for Prime Day to get the low down on everything else on sale during the event. Here are all the Prime Day best beauty product deals on sale now:
Mario Badescu Spritz Mist and Glow Facial Spray Collection Trio, Lavender, Cucumber, Rose
Cult-favorite Mario Badescu, an upscale drugstore brand now sold at stores like Ulta and Sephora, makes some of my favorite facial sprays. A quick spritz will help wake you or make you feel refreshed, but their real purpose to hydrate and tone before applying moisturizers or serums.
Bioderma Sensibio H2O Soothing Micellar Cleansing Water
Micellar water is one of the easiest makeup removers and quick cleaners out there. Apply onto a cotton pad or reusable makeup pad, and it works like a magnet to wipe away dirt, foundation, even waterproof mascara or eyeliner.
Paul Mitchell Pro Tools Express Gold Curl Titanium Curling Iron
This highly rated curling iron comes in traditional black-and-gold or a bright ombre pink. It heats up to 410 degrees F in 60 seconds and touts a five-second recovery time, a fact often noted by reviewers gushing over how quickly it heats up — and how long the curls tend to last, even for thick hair types.
ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm
Another coveted brand you might be surprised to find on Amazon, Elemis is known for its spa-quality products. The British skincare brand’s pro-collagen line targets aging skin and is especially popular. The cleansing balm is like a treatment and wash in one, melting away makeup and grime and leaving soft skin behind.
FOREO LUNA mini 2 Facial Cleansing Brush for Spa Skincare at Home, Fuchsia
With 2600 5-star ratings and an overall rating of 4.6 stars, this cleansing brush is tried and true. It uses T-Sonic pulsations with eight adjustable intensities and three zones of varying touch point thickness to provide a deep clean for all skin types.
Braun Series 9 Electric Razor
Okay, technically this is a grooming deal — but it’s too good not to include. The Series 9 from Braun is one of the most comfortable and precise electric shavers available: it’s great for sensitive skin, has an ergonomic, lightweight design, and is a cinch to clean. This style, which rarely goes on sale, makes an excellent holiday gift.
Native Deodorant, 3 Pack
Since trying this natural deodorant last month, it’s become my go-to. Finding an aluminum-free deodorant can feel like a great triumph: There are a lot of formulas out there that have actually made me smell bad. Native goes on creamy, doesn’t leave a trace on clothes, and the best part: it comes in a range of subtle scents, ranging from masculine and woodsy to actually unscented (no funny powdery soap smell here.)
Makeup Eye Brush Set
New eyeshadow brushes might feel like a luxury in the era of staying home, but a good set will last you forever. This set of seven soft, synthetic fiber brushes will work for blending powder and cream shadows, yes, but also for touching up under-eye concealer, applying lipstick, or carefully filling in brows.
ghd Curling Iron, Curve Soft Curl, 1.25 inch Professional Hair Curling Iron
A slightly heavier duty curling iron that the Paul Mitchell option above, this professional-quality curling iron from ghd heats up in just 20 seconds. Reviewers rave that it’s worth the money.
