Unlike Black Friday, which always falls the day after Thanksgiving, Amazon keeps us guessing as to when, exactly, we’ll be able to snag the best Prime Day deals. This year, the retailer is gearing up for a second Prime Day celebration on October 11 and 12, and over here at Vogue, our team is eager to grab a few steals.
Most of my colleagues have their eyes set on gadgets and gizmos, like chic, minimalist Bose headphones and Apple AirTags. Naturally, we’re turning to Amazon for affordable beauty finds too, from perfume oil to sunscreen.
Find all these and more items we’re hoping to score on sale during Amazon Prime Day (again!) this year.

AirTags have helped me keep track of my belongings while traveling, but I think I need a couple more for my day-to-day essentials! I should absolutely slip one into my wallet, but I’ll pick up the 4-pack and give the rest as gifts!

Just because summer is over doesn’t mean it’s time to stop wearing sunscreen—hopefully I can stock up on my favorite one from Elta MD. If it goes on sale, I’m also tempted to pick up Kai’s rose perfume oil after a long hiatus (I wore the original scent for years and years!).

Silk press season is here, which for me, means reassessing my arsenal of styling tools. Though I typically rely on my Dyson Airwrap, I’ve been eyeing this trio of barrels by T3 that can help customize my look based on which style I’m achieving. Otherwise, I’m on a mission to grow my eyelashes through 2023. I’ve heard amazing things about this Grande Lash serum, so if it goes on sale, it’ll be an immediate buy.

It’s not glamorous by any means, but I’m in desperate need of a new vacuum. I’m hoping that this Dyson V8 cordless vacuum goes on sale this Prime Day—I am a neat freak, after all.

I’m challenging myself to use my NuFace every day this month leading up to my brother’s wedding in November. A restock of the brand’s priming gel, and a brush for easy application are on my shopping list!

I’ve been on a big smoothie kick lately and love the idea of being able to finally blend these fruit concoctions at home versus overspending elsewhere for a single beverage. I have my eye on this sleek white Beast blender for Prime Day. Its chic minimalist design will fit perfectly in with my home decor, and it also comes with a to-go cup and detachable infuser as an added bonus. I’m also prone to misplacing my AirPods, so I think it’s finally time to double up on a pair.

Right now, pampering my skin is top of mind. So I hope to see this skin cleansing micellar water on sale as well as this lush lip balm.

I’m on the hunt for a meditation cushion set that blends in with my other yoga accessories and could also double as a chic floor pillow—or perhaps it could be simply mistaken for an upgraded piece of living room decor. I love the clean ivory shade on this one, and the fact that it’s handwoven cotton. Here’s to hoping for a great deal!

In desperate need of a new set of headphones, I have my eye on Apple’s AirPods Max Wireless Over-Ear ones. The sleek design offers the ultimate mood (and outfit-of-the-day) booster.

My dermatologist told me to get this cleanser, but lucky for you all, it’s also on Amazon. Run, don’t walk (especially if it’s on sale for APD) to this glycolic acid cleanser. Why a glycolic acid versus, say, a salicylic acid? That’s between my skin, Jan Marini, and my dermatologist. All I know is that my skin has never looked better using this once-nightly cleanse.
