Prime Day deals and other stuff you might like including my favorite hair appliance

Today is Amazon Prime Day! There were advance deals on Echo devices as well as a ton of new deals that came up this morning. I had to get up early to write this, but I’m also using some other products that I found ahead of time. I’m excited for Prime day! I’ve been using online shopping as a mood booster but I’m trying to keep it manageable. Instead of buying clothes or high ticket items I am just buying small things and giving $10 to $25 to the Democrats whenever I need to feel better. That way, I’m doing good and it feels good. Plus they text me a lot and I appreciate that.

Prime Deal: A Roomba under $200
Last year, on Cyber Monday, there was an iRobot Roomba, the 675, under $200. Now you can get the 692 model under $200! I have the 690, I paid over $300 for it, and my Roomba is still going strong years later. This has 22 ratings, 4.3 stars and a perfect score on ReviewMeta. I don’t use this when I’m not at home because it can get tangled in cords or knock over small things, but once I figured out what to move out of the way it works great. I’m home all the time anyway. It doesn’t vacuum as well as a manual vacuum, but it will pick up dust and dirt under couches and in corners you might miss. Reviewers write that it “does a fantastic job cleaning my many rugs,” “Cleaning is fast and straightforward, and it works continuously for about two hours without recharging,” “It is the right size that it doesn’t get trapped under low items like the TV stand. It has really great suction and the brush held on strong” and “saves us time cleaning.”

Prime Deal: A Lifestraw personal water filter for just $9.99
The Lifestraw usually retails for $19.99 so this is a great deal at over half off. This is a little straw that filters up to 1,000 gallons of water. You can keep it on hand for emergencies or use while hiking or backpacking. It would also make a great gift for an outdoorsy person. This has 34,000(!) ratings, 4.8 stars and an A on Fakespot. People say it really works to filter the grossest water. “I drank from the most disgusting looking crevice filled with brown scum… [it] tasted like the freshest spring water.” “Recently I got stranded in the back woods of the Adirondack Mountains. I had ran out of water earlier on the first day and used this until I was rescued on the morning of day three. THIS WORKS, this helped save my life.”

Prime Deal: A 3 quart Instant Pot for $50
I have a 6 quart Instant Pot that I paid $90 for last summer when it was on sale. It’s more than big enough for my needs. I love that I can use it as both a pressure cooker and a crock pot. You can cook food quickly and just leave it there for a while as it stays warm. I use mine a couple of times a week and it’s held up great. You can get a 3 quart Instant Pot for just $50! That’s more than 50% off. Other models are on sale including the 10 quart Duo Nova for $100. It’s a “Pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, Saute pan, food warmer, and yogurt maker.” I need to do more things with mine!

Prime Deal: A two pack of Mario Badescu facial spray for $9.80
We’ve featured Mario Badescu facial spray before and this is a great deal. You get a two pack of 8 ounces total of cucumber and rosewater spray for under $10. You can also get a 3 pack that includes lavender for $14.70. This has over 7,000 ratings and 4.4 stars on ReviewMeta. Both varieties are said to be refreshing, to have a lovely scent and to improve the texture and feel of skin. Women write “Love them both. I use the rose water one to set my makeup. And the green one after my skin care routine,” “I feel like it’s brightened up my skin tone since I’ve been using it,” “I use it to prep my skin before makeup and after for setting my makeup, helps my skin stay moisturized.”

A sink cleaner and polish that will make your sink look like new again
Hope’s Perfect Sink cleans, removes stains, cleans, polishes and gives and water-repellant finish to your stainless steel or corian sink. This has
178 ratings, 4.6 stars and the same score on ReviewMeta. People rave about how well this product cleaned their sink compared to other products. They write “I had stains in my sink that I just couldn’t get out but this product did work,” “stays clean and shiny for several weeks” and “This is the only product to use if you want to keep your stainless sink looking like new.”

A stick-on flexible magnifying mirror to apply makeup with ease
I bought this and it’s coming Thursday! This is a 6.8” round stick on magnifying light up makeup mirror for a better view while applying makeup, tweezing, shaving and more. It runs on three AAA batteries, which are said to last a long time. It comes in 7 and 10 x magnification and in a square version, all under $27. It has over 3,100 ratings, 4.3 stars and a perfect score on ReviewMeta. People like that it’s easy to install and how long and flexible the arm is. They write “I highly recommend this mirror for anyone that struggles plucking those darn white hairs that are nearly invisible,” “The suction is brilliant and the mirror itself is just the right size” and “First time I used it I noticed that my makeup was not blended and I had dark stuff in the corner of my eyes which I never noticed before.” Reviewers say to be careful when you’re first installing it and make sure the suction cup is clean.

The Dyson Airwrap has been a game changer for my hair
This is not really a curling iron or a hair dryer, it’s an insanely expensive hair curler and straightener that works with hot air. It’s $500, please only buy it if you have the money to spare. I got mine last year and I paid $50 more than it’s being sold for now on Amazon as it’s currently $50 off. This is the Airwrap complete, it has big and large curler attachments, a drying attachment and a brush attachment. It was absolutely worth it to me, I look like I got a blowout every day. The learning curve was not high at all and I just watched a YouTube video to figure it out. I either let my hair air dry before I use it or I use a regular hair dryer to get most of the damp out of my hair first. The included dryer attachment also works well. I have hair that’s below my shoulders and can do both straight and sleek or curly looks much quicker than with traditional tools. This has 4.5 stars, over 1,400 ratings and an A on Fakespot. Reviewers write “My hair looks like I just stepped out of a salon,” “I can get my hair so much straighter and smoother than with a round brush,” “my hair looks shiny and super smooth” and “This is life changing for me!”

    We have a Roomba on each floor. They do a great job picking up the tumbleweeds of cat fur that my Maine coon leaves everywhere. You do have to empty it after each use because the basket is small. Unlike other vacuums that would send our pets into hiding, the cats love the Roombas and chase them around or ride on them.

    • manda says:

      I agree that the roomba is great, but I wanted to add that you should be realistic with yourself before getting one. Like, I knew that we aren’t good about putting away shoes and pet toys, and there are cords and blankets on the floor a lot. What I’m saying is, if you have to clean up a bunch before you can let your roomba go, then you probably won’t end up using your roomba as much as you think you might. Also, furniture sort of messes with it. Like, ours cannot handle the dining room chairs and it always got stuck in one, and so that was a chore to move the chairs every time. I recommend really assessing your space and your lifestyle before purchasing one. I still use my regular vacuum as much as I ever did

    We have a Roomba and its been going strong for almost 5 years now (we have had to replace some of the runners or whatever though.) Its definitely not as strong as a regular vacuum and the basket isn’t as big (I had a golden and still have a lab, so we empty it all the time), but I look at it like this – when I vacuum I just run the vacuum over the carpet once. This just keeps going for hours on end, so the carpet does end up looking a lot better. It also helps that we live in a one story rancher that is all carpet, so we have the ideal house for it.

    I bought the stasher bags when they were featured here a while ago and I love them in general – dishwasher safe, they seal nicely, etc. – BUT the “sandwich bag” doesn’t work that well – the opening for the bag isn’t big enough to fit a standard slice of white bread. We always had to really contort my son’s sandwiches to get them to fit. And then he threw them out at lunch, so that was great too. LOL. But compared to other reusable bags I’ve tried, those are by far the best.

    Anyway, I picked up the Mario Badescu sprays because they look so refreshing and the gel eyeliner, I haven’t tried that yet so we’ll see how it goes. And the Hope in a Jar bc my skin gets so dry during the winter!

    Also, Celebitchy – you may want to add this to the post – for anyone looking for gifts for kids for the upcoming months – they have some good deals on STEM toys and such:

    Love our roomba and have had it about 3 years in ‘new’ house, using it everyday for our Aussie’s fur. Got it when I moved and bought new rugs. It works great on teak floors, tile and rugs. For side tables it would get stuck under we got cheap magnetic strips to stick under tables which nobody ever notices. My only wish is the trap to be bigger. I can’t remember the last time I actually vacuumed myself. Treat your self and get one asap.

  4. t fanty fan says:

    Also with Roomba, if your pet has an accident, the machine will happily spread it all over your house. Not that I would know about that directly……lol. This is why mine is now never used, because we have an elderly tiny dog.

  5. Paperclip says:

    THANK you for these recs, Hecate. They are always bright spots in my week, and I really appreciate the time and thought you put into them.

  6. sallie jo perraglia says:

    Love, love, love the airwrap – I saw you mentioned it a while back and total game changer.

  7. heygingersnaps says:

    If only the owner of Dyson wasn’t such a wanker (supported Brexit and then went off to make Singapore their base) I would buy their hair blower but our family are boycotting Dyson products plus their hoovers aren’t durable.

  8. Christina510 says:

    LOVE the Air Wrap. I’ve had one for a year, it is a total game changer. It is hard to say it is worth every penny but it totally is. My husband bought it as a gift because I couldn’t swallow the price tag but if I knew then how well it worked I wouldn’t have balked the price at all. Which I know sounds crazy!!

  9. Ash says:

    FYI all of the Perfect products work amazing! I have a beautiful quartz island (which I literally stole the whole idea from the quartz dealer) but any cleaners all streak!! The Perfect one never does. They have a whole line and I’m all for it! We have a new house with beautiful materials that were picked out by yours truly and they’re expensive/were on sale and I cannot afford for something to go wrong!

    • lucy2 says:

      The Perfect products are great! I’ve used the Perfect Glass, Granite, and Stainless Steel products, and they all work very well. I’m gearing up to redo my kitchen once it’s ok to have people in (get the cabinets painted and do new quartz countertops) and I look forward to using it on that.

      I always consider a Roomba, my cats are very messy and the one drops clumps of fur everywhere, but my house is very old and has been added onto several times, and I think it would get stuck at a few spots.

  10. Renee says:

    I can co-sign on the rave reviews for the Dyson hair styler. I love mine too. I am not good at traditional blow outs with round brushes but this tool makes it so easier. I love it! It was worth the hefty price. I’ve been using it for over a year and love it.

  11. Lemons says:

    I just splurged on the Nintendo Switch that I’ve been on the fence about for months, but the Prime Day deal was really great.
    My boyfriend is going to say it’s a waste of money, but it was my birthday last week and this year has been shit.
