1. Tangle Teezer Blow-Styling Round Tool (Was $32, Now $10)

Even better, this deal is for three tubes, so you won’t have to worry about restocking anytime soon.
9. Burt’s Bees Sensitive Facial Cleansing Towelettes (Was $15, Now $11)

10. OPI Start to Finish Nail Treatment (Was $14, Now $7)
Pamper your nails with a base coat, top coat, and strengthener all in one.

12. Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner (Was $22, Now $16)

13. Supergoop! Everyday SPF 50 Sunscreen For Face and Body (Was $32, Now $13)
Speaking of summer, you didn’t think Amazon Prime Day would skimp on the sun protection essentials, did you? The e-tailer comes out swinging with a tried-and-true formula from Supergoop!, that’s simultaneously powerfully protective and startlingly lightweight. The oil-free, water-resistant formula absorbs fast to deliver ultra-moisturized sun defense with a subtle hint of scent thanks to citrus, basil, and rosewood.
14. Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micellar Water (Was $15, Now $10)
Restore your skin’s natural balance with a hydrating micellar water from Bioderma, one of the brands that introduced the game-changing product to American beauty lovers. Their cleansing Sensibio formula is so-named because it leaves the skin’s hydrolipidic film intact — it’s a protective layer formed of natural oils that keeps out blemish-causing bacteria and keeps in moisture — so it’s gentle enough for daily use even if your skin is extra sensitive.
15. Mustela No Rinse Cleansing Water (Was $15, Now $9)
But why should adults have all the fun when it comes to micellar cleansers? This gentle cleansing water from Mustela is the ideal between-bath solution for your little one, to quickly and easily wipe up messes without involving harsh, drying chemicals that could inflame their (literally) baby-soft skin.
16. Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream (Was $120, Now $90)
This lush, Mediterranean algae-infused cream from luxury British skin-care brand Elemis has long been a favorite of beauty experts and makeup artists for its firming, age-defying effects.
