There's an old saying in my family, passed down from generation to generation: You don't know what you need until you see it for 50 percent off. I'm genetically predisposed to sniff out, track, and take advantage of the best sales on sites like Amazon, eBay, and even 20 percent off Babeland's entire site — and I'm hot on the trail of these deals on necessary beauty, tech, and lifestyle gadgets you can actually afford now.
Did I mention that each of these amazing markdowns are all under $100? For less than a Benjamin Franklin you can treat yourself to an at-home DIY spa day or a tangle-free listening sesh. I could take the credit for finding you these deals, but really, it wouldn’t be fair if I did. After all, I’m not responsible for these sales (thank the Amazon deals, Babeland sales, or eBay discounts, if you must). I’m just a girl trying to share secret sales and save the world a buck or two.
1. Forget Tangling Headphones And Go Wireless
I have had my headphone cords tangle more times than I care to admit. I know there are cases for them, and even a proper way to wrap them, but I always end up chucking them in my bag. This wireless pair would solve all my problems, not to mention be a great workout partner for when I get carried away jamming to Beyoncé.
2. Going On A Summer Getaway? Pack This Suitcase!
You'll never understand the beauty of a good suitcase until you spend hours in an airport struggling with one with faulty wheels, a jammed zipper, and a broken handle. With 360-degree spinning wheels, telescoping locking handles, and an expandable zipper, if you get this suitcase, you'll never have to.
3. The Best New Brushes On The Block
After highlighting, contouring, and strobing, there was bound to be another big beauty trend for summer — and this brush set is it. The unique oval shape and handle make self-application easier than traditional make-up brushes that were designed for putting makeup on someone else. And did I mention how absolutely soft and buttery they feel on on your face?
4. Relax, Unwind, And Release With An Aromatherapy Diffuser
I used to be all about lighting scented aromatherapy candles after a hard day's work, until I discovered this diffuser. It's much less wasteful than a candle, but you can also stock up on your favorite essential oils to change the scent as often as you like.
5. Have A DIY Spa Day With A Dead Sea Mud Mask
For much less than a day at the spa, you can do a little DIY treat yo'self with a detoxifying and relaxing clay mud mask. It uses mineral rich Dead Sea mud to stimulate circulation, exfoliate dead skin cells, reduce pores and to help clear acne.
6. Lash Out With 10 Different Eyelash Styles
Ten pairs of reusable lashes, ranging from thin wispies to full vixen volume—what more is there to say? Stock up on these for your makeup kit and never make a last minute trip to the beauty supply store for lashes again.
7. Meet The Infamous Sex In The City Rabbit
This little purple do-it-all toy was made famous on Sex In The City, and if you're so inclined, you can finally get your hands on it for 20 percent off. In fact, the whole site is 20 percent off, and you get free shipping, so channel your inner Samantha and have a field day!
8. Moisturize With Pure Shea Butter
Before coconut oil made its impact on the beauty world, there was shea butter. This fatty butter from the nut of the African shea tree makes for a nourishing and creamy body moisturizer, that can also be used for DIY homemade products like soaps and lip balms.
