Best Presidents’ Day Sales: Beauty
Starting strong with makeup products seeing price slashes ahead of Presidents’ Day: Too Faced, MAC, and Freck. We love it when beauty retailers show up for sales because it helps us rack our reward points way up. Go ahead and grab the Lip Injection Maximum Lip Plumper to help you kiss winter goodbye. Beauty sales will only amp up as we get closer to the weekend, but we’d call these a good place to start.
Best Presidents’ Day Sales: Skin Care
O’ say can you cleanse, by the balm’s early light? Presidents’ Day is the perfect time to shop early skin-care deals from brands like Foreo and Guerlain. Swedish-founded Foreo designs some of our favorite skin tech, including the Luna 3, which is made of bacteria-resistant silicone bristles to help hygienically and luxuriously wash your face. Speaking of luxury — save big with this gorgeous Abeille Royal Youth Watery Oil & Cream Set from Guerlain.
Best Presidents’ Day Sales: Hair Care
Of course, hair care sales leading up to Presidents’ Day are majorly on our radar. You can grab a little bottle of Nécessaire’s The Scalp Serum at Nordstrom for $20 off or the Olaplex Strong Days Ahead Hair Kit for a softening and strengthening boost to your routine. We won’t say we’ve imagined what Honest Abe’s beard would have looked like with the help of the Hot Tools 24K Gold One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer…but we also won’t say we haven’t.
Best Presidents’ Day Sales: Fragrance
If you were the president, your Oval Office would smell like one of these delectable scents from Tom Ford, 19-69, or Boy Smells. So dream big and start now with one of these on-sale scores from Nordstrom and Sephora. We especially recommend the Boy Smells Hypernature Rhubarb Smoke Scented Candle for its fresh and sophisticated white birch, ivy, wild fig, and rhubarb blend. Presidents’ Day sales are a great time to test out a new fragrance. Low risk, high reward.
Best Presidents’ Day Sales: Wellness
If the cold weather is wearing on you, consider picking up one of these pick-me-ups at a discount. Skims are basically never on sale, so when we discover one of their buttery soft pieces at a lower price, we’re running to the racks. Pair the Barely There Shapewear High Waist Briefs with the Cozy Earth Waffle Bathrobe to stylishly beat the February chilliness. FYI, Cozy Earth is 20 percent off sitewide through February 15 (bundles get you 25 percent off).
Best Presidents’ Day Sales: Bedding
Celebrate the long weekend with on-sale sleep from these high-quality, buzzy bedding brands. If you’re shopping for mattress deals, look to Helix and Birch, who have already unfurled their early Presidents’ Day sales. Everything on Helix.com is 20 percent off, and the same goes for Birch. If you need new sheets to match your new memory foam mattress, Leesa has 25 percent off all bedding. Sure, the right to a good night’s rest isn’t included in the First Amendment, but you deserve to sleep like it is.
