Guys, I'm sorry I'm writing about this only now -- there are only a few hours left of pretty impressive savings at amazon.com and amazon.ca. I'm actually not that familiar with Amazon these days -- last time I looked (about 100 years ago), I thought it only sold books. But no. More. Much more. Including beauty stuff. And right this minute, it's "Prime Day," which means that if you're an Amazon Prime member, you have access to extra savings.
If you don't know what Amazon Prime means, you're making me feel better. I've only just found out myself; I have a gratis media-perk membership to try out for a while. At the moment all I've grasped is that it comes with free two-day shipping and access to today's Prime Day savings, which Amazon says is better than Black Friday.
Rather than keep you here reading, lemme just show you a couple of beauty things that sparked my wallet's interest. (I think the sales are better in non-beauty departments.) Some of these discounts appear to be structured as flash sales, with a countdown clock. That might be fun for you; I'm not so good at countdown clocks myself.
amazon.com prime day deals
This June by Netatmo UV monitoring bracelet ($32.99 down from $100) is wearable tech that measures your UV exposure throughout the day. Launched sometime in 2014, it was created by Fred Potter, the founder and CEO of Netatmo, and designed by French jewelry designer Camille Toupet, who has worked with Harry Winston. Sensors in the jewel communicate with a free app on your phone to send you messages about the UV index, how much exposure you've had today, and suggestions regarding re-application and maybe wearing a hat. Originally about $100 US, it's now just $32.99 at amazon.com – and I don't think it's a Prime exclusive. According to this thorough review at digitaltrends.com, this sale price is about right. I'd pay that for something pretty that reminds me to re-apply sunscreen.
This ghd 1-inch ceramic styler is usually listed at $185; today save 41% (aka $75.01) and get it for $109.99.
If you're a Schick Quattro fan, refill blades are always of interest. At amazon.com right now, you can get 8 cartridges for $17.99, a savings of $3 from $20.99.
RoC is a good line that's been flying under the radar for a while. RoC Multi Correxion 5-in-1 Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 can be had at a 40% discount, down to $14.01 from $23.40.
amazon.ca prime day deals
Oddly, amazon.ca is not a rewardstyle retailer, so I can't make a cute shoppity thing for you. But you can still click through via the product names. Only trouble is that there really doesn't seem to be that much beauty. But maybe you have other shopping to do?
The Conair Infinity Pro Curl is 31% off for a savings of $34, down to $75.99 from $109.99.
A Dove Men + Care Total Care 3-Piece Gift Pack of body/face wash, shampoo and anti-perspirant is a deal at $7.69 down from $10.99.
A 400 mL Nexxus Humectress Conditioner is down $5.54 ($33%) from $16.99 to $11:45. (I don't see a Nexxus Humectress here, but I guess that's the nature of Amazon and sales.)
Here's the main amazon.ca page so you can explore to your wallet's content.
Do you regularly shop on amazon.com or amazon.ca? How do you like the experience? Are you a Prime member?
