You don’t have to tell on yourself here, but how many of you don’t all that excited over Prime Day because literally every day is Prime Day in your house? (Sorry, USPS.) I have an Amazon addiction and I don’t care to admit it. Six glasses cleaners for $9 instead of one for $6? Absolutely. A stockpile of beauty products “just because they were on sale?” Sounds completely familiar. Headphones, coffee creamer, and acne patches in the same shipment? You already know.
Prime Day has been so successful for the online retailing giant that they’ve opted for a second round (affectionately called the “Early Access Sale” but we all know what that really means). And, why not? The first two-day Prime event in July brought in close to $12 billion (with a “b”). If you opted out of Prime Day or even this fall’s Early Access Sale but you’re having FOMO, fear not: Here are some top deals that can still be snatched up.

Pop one of these sticker-like patches over a trouble spot and — bam! — by morning, it’ll barely be a shell of its former self. These are 43% off for a limited time.
You’re going to see a lot of No B.S.’s products on this list and that’s because they’re A. Fairly inexpensive, B. Just so darn good and C. 20% off. This purchase is for a double dose of products including a day and night hyaluronic cream in a jar and a moisturizer with the all-important SPF in a bottle.

These have prescription-grade lenses and an anti-glare coating for convenience and are 15% off during Amazon’s sale.
Since we’re on an eyewear kick, we might as well knock out one more option — the safety glasses. These have a plastic frame, polycarbonate non-polarized lenses, and a UV protection coating. The important part is the safety feature, which delivers high-impact protection in a wraparound design that’s plenty lightweight for your face. The bifocal lenses are nearly invisible and the price (at 25% off) is pretty small, too.

A Place In The Sun
