As The Cut’s shopping writer, I obsessively test hundreds of beauty and skin products each year. Not only that, we have a team of 6 people with different skin types and sensitivities, who are also testing products. Each product goes through a rigorous process of being tried on multiple skin tones, skin types, and personalities. Below, we’ve rounded up the ones we’ve tried (and liked) that are on sale during Amazon Prime Day. But think fast, since today is the last day to shop all of these products while they’re on sale.

From brands like Laneige (its lip mask is on sale again!), Osea, Drybar, Nuface, and Cut Shop–approved favorites from our Obsessive Tester roundups, we’ve listed them below.

The world loves this lip mask and we know why. Five Cut editors tried out this product and came to the conclusion that it leaves your lips so soft and is worth purchasing (especially now that’s in on sale.)

When it comes to eye creams, this is the Amazon best seller. After testing the product, which has hyaluronic acid and vitamin E, we found it was more than suitable for all skin types.

CosRx products are often on sale during Prime Day, and honestly, lucky us. Its products are simple but effective, and this snail mucin is one of its best sellers.

This dry shampoo from Kristin Ess is Cut Shop editor Hanna Flanagan’s favorite affordable dry shampoo on the market. “I reach for it between washes, of course, but I use it (sparingly!) on clean hair when I need some texture. The best part? The lightweight and fast-acting formula is completely translucent, so I never have to worry about white residue,” she says.

This is one of our favorite flat irons because of its curved plates that allow you to create different types of styles, whether it’s smooth waves, curls, or sleek, straight hair. After testing multiple flat irons, Cut contributor Shanna Shipin says this one is worth its value and likes that it has an automatic shutoff feature, so you don’t have to worry about whether you turned it off or not. Life changing.

The Dyson is hailed as one of the best hair dryers for a reason and price is not it. It’s efficient and powerful, and everyone who has tried it on our team loves it. When reviewing it, the Cut’s contributor Shanna Shipin said, “If you are a regular salon goer, it will pay for itself after ten blowouts. With my usual dryer, it takes me 30 minutes to dry my hair from start to finish. With the Dyson, I’m done in ten — and it looks good!” We’re sold!

This hydrating body oil is silky and leaves your skin feeling smooth and healthy.

This thick shea-butter hand cream is our overall best pick for its simple yet effective formula and its richness, which is what stood out to our team when reviewing.

Cut editor Hanna Flanagan loves this foaming self-tanner. It dries quickly, isn’t streaky, and actually has a natural-looking olive undertone.

This shower oil smells like cookies, isn’t too runny, and leaves your skin so soft. It’s luxury in a bottle, and former beauty director Kathleen Hou is a longtime fan thanks to its pleasing almondy-vanilla scent and the way that this oil becomes a frothy, silky lather with water that negates the need for lotion afterward.

I mean, who doesn’t want sunscreen that looks like whipped cream?

Shopping writer Chinea Rodriguez described this sunscreen as one that absorbs quickly and easily and doesn’t feel like the typical sunscreen. Instead of feeling tacky, it’s hydrating while providing ample coverage from the sun.

Both the Cut Shop team and a number of dermatologists love La Roche Posay’s sunscreen. This bundle combines two of their bestsellers: the Anthelios Tinted Mineral Sunscreen with a travel size mini Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Cleanser.

Anastasia’s brow products are top-notch, including this powder duo that allows you to create fuller-looking brows.

These Crest strips are often on sale during Prime Day and always worth it.

If you need more convincing, read the reviews (which are some of the most entertaining ones I’ve ever read).

Recommended to the Cut by Penda N’diaye, the host of Pro Hoe podcast, this vibrator has 12 different settings and is perfect for the multitasker. It was designed to hit both the G-spot and clitoris, after all.

Along with toys, lube is almost imperative. This silicone option from K-Y is long-lasting, silky smooth, and doesn’t cause too much of a mess.
