Alleyoop Pen Pal Makeup Pen

Alleyoop (discount added at checkout)

This is the same price we saw during Cyber ​​Week last year, and the rest of the page is also a 20 percent discount. WIRED reviewer Louryn Strampe was impressed with this little makeup tool. It combines eyeliner, lip liner, brow pencil and highlighter in a design reminiscent of the multicolored pens from primary school. All the options are meant to make self-care and beauty fun but fast, as the 4-in-1 makeup brush and blush, bronzer and highlighter stacked compactly.

Relationship (discount added at checkout)

Many WIRED employees are devoted supporters of this SPF. It makes you look glowing, does not leave a white mold and feels super light on your skin so you actually want to wear it. I have not tried other Kinship products yet, but I like this so much that I will probably have to pick up a few more things now that everything is 20 percent off.


We all want what we do not have. In my case, it’s sweet freckles. Fortunately, there are countless faux freckle products and do-it-yourself hacks out there. Freck is the best I’ve tried, and a few other WIRED employees are fans too. Just create a few dots, press it out with your finger, and redistribute the residue to the rest of your face. No one will know they are fake unless they are really studying you. The price has dropped since more options became available. You can choose the XL bottle or the Noir shade, each discount for $ 20 ($ 8 discount).

Olives and June (use HAPPY25 at checkout)

I was impressed with the Olive and June Mani set I tried during quarantine, and think it’s worth it for anyone who wants to intensify their home manicure. There are a few sets available, but Weekender comes with cuticle serum, a nail file, a buffer, mowers, a plush varnish remover, a thin nail brush, hand serum, polish and the brand’s universal bottle handle, top coat, quick wipe drops and star stickers. It would cost significantly more if you got everything individually and I like the products themselves.

Girlfriend Collective Compressive High-Rise Leggings and Paloma Bra

Girlfriend Collective (discount added at checkout)

I could not understand the appeal of expensive leggings until I tried these. They are super high-waisted, feel so slim and comfortable to wear and are tight without making you want to tear them off. They are also made of plastic bottles and recycled polyester. I pair mine with the matching Paloma Racerback bra, which is also reduced to $ 29 ($ 13 off).


I tried Adidas’ period-proof shorts and loved them. These tights are comfortable to wear while exercising or just relaxing. The company says these are made for backup and you still need a tampon, pillow or cup, but I found the shorts enough for easy days. Just throw them in the washing machine afterwards.

Offer on subscription box

I love subscription boxes to gift someone else or myself. You get at least one or two months of surprises at your door, perfectly tailored to your interests.

Horti Plant Subscription

Horti (enter GREENTHUMB at checkout)

Whether you want to add greenery to your own home or give other plants as a gift, Horti makes it easy with a monthly subscription. Each box comes with the plant carefully wrapped, a puck of potting soil (soak it in water to expand) and care instructions. There are pet friendly and beginner planting options.

You read the price right. This deal gives you your first month completely free. If you want two bags to start, you pay around $ 13 with the deal. A coffee subscription is great for both connoisseurs and beginners, and Atlas is one of our favorites. You get beans of a single origin that come from all over the world and are roasted by Atlas in Austin, Texas. You can choose between light to medium or medium to dark roasts or choose both.

Bokksu (enter BF2021 at checkout)

If you love Japanese snacks, Bokksu is one of many themed subscriptions where each box revolves around a different region of Japan. The theme of the first box is the seasons of the country. For more options, check out our guide to the best Snack subscription boxes.

Oral care offers

Oral care is self-care. Brushing teeth may not be the most fun activity of the day, but you have to admit that you feel a little more connected with fresh breath, do not you?

Philips One from Sonicare electric toothbrush

Goal, Amazon, Best buy

This is one of our favorite electric toothbrushes. It’s cheap, light and small, and although it’s not the most powerful brush I’ve ever tried, it offers just enough vibration to help with your cleaning. This is the rechargeable version, but the AAA battery-powered one is also on sale for $ 15 ($ 10 off).


The small but mighty Hum is our overall favorite electric toothbrush (9/10, WIRED recommends). It is affordable and beats Philips with cleaning power. It is small so you can scrub your entire tongue and the hard-to-reach hind teeth without any problems, plus there is an app if you want to track your habits. The new Hum Smart Rhythm is cheaper (and also discounted this week). It is battery powered and has two cleaning modes compared to the regular Hums three. It has less cleaning ability, but it would be good for kids or someone who wants to try an electric brush for the first time.
