Marine-based grooming products are becoming more and more abundant due to the beneficial nature of the ingredients. Algae, and specifically micro-algae, are right at the center of this surge — they pack plenty of nutrients and minerals that can help draw toxins from the skin while hydrating, softening and replenishing with essential vitamins.
The Marine Layer Under Eye Recovery Gel from Port Products uses these potent botanical extracts derived from the ocean to combat signs of aging. Developed with red algae, kelp and other micro-algae, it helps reduce the appearance of dark circles and under eyes. This helpful product already sold out once, so do yourself a favor and combat the damage done by stress, sun exposure, poor sleep habits or one too many drinks.

2018 MacBook Air
Save Between $100 and $150: Apple announced the 2018 MacBook Air less than two months ago and, besides the fact that Apple should’ve released this same laptop two years ago, the laptop has received universal praise. Basically, if you’re looking to buy a new laptop and you want to live in Apple’s ecosystem, this new MacBook Air is the one to buy. It’s thin and lightweight. It has a beautiful Retina display. It has terrific battery life. It comes with Touch ID, so you can unlock it by just pressing your finger on the fingerprint sensor. And the best news? It’s already on sale. Normally priced at $1,199 for the 128GB model and $1,399 for the 256GB model, but Amazon has cut those prices by $150 and $100, respectively. Those are two pretty good deals. In all honesty, it’s probably worth going with the 256GB model because, frankly, you’ll want the extra storage — this is hopefully the computer you’ll have for the next 4 or 5 years, after all.
Danner Vertigo 917
Save $65: Usually, when a company has been around for close to a century, it’s developed an iconic product or two. For Danner, that might be its easily-recognized Mountain Light, which is a modern retooling of the brand’s very first hiking boot, the 6490. The Mountain Light is made with full-grain leather and a stout Vibram rubber outsole. The design is chunky and outdoorsy in all the right ways, which is why the boot has found its way onto the feet of city dwellers in addition to hikers. But Danner also makes boots explicitly with urban life in mind.
One such pair is the Vertigo 917. Like the Mountain Light, it’s made with full-grain leather and Vibram rubber, but its platform is cushioned with a responsive midsole and its shank is made of nylon. It’s a more forgiving construction that still hits the same aesthetic notes but won’t be as hard on feet during a full day of tromping on sidewalks and asphalt. Right now, they’re 30 percent off at Huckberry for a total savings of $65. — Tanner Bowden
R.M. Williams Comfort Turnout Chelsea Boots
Save $99:R.M. Williams is to Australia what Red Wing is to America. Founded in 1932, the storied boot brand is as much a standard bearer as it is an integral part of the culture. When Reginald Murray Williams first founded the brand, he offered saddles, riding boots and other leather goods for cattlemen. As time passed, the boots became his standout seller. Made from a single-piece leather upper, they had a clean silhouette, a simple pull-on style and superior durability. And over the past eight decades, the design hasn’t changed much.
If you’re looking for a pair of rugged pull-on boots to add to your wardrobe, head over to East Dane. You can save $99 on a pair of R.M. Williams Comfort Turnout Boots. The Goodyear-welted style features a eucalyptus-colored leather upper and a rubber sole for added traction in slippery conditions. While still expensive at just under $400, they’re a worthwhile investment, designed to stand up to decades of wear. — John Zientek
Breville Precision Coffee Maker
Save $100 Breville’s Precision coffee maker is the most powerful, advanced coffee maker regular people can buy.
Beyond brewing Gold Cup standard pots of coffee and holding an SCA certification, it also allows you to customize brewing options like flow rate, bloom time and water temperature. It’s the only coffee maker that can brew with flat bottom filters and cone filters. There’s even an attachment that allows you to insert you favorite pour-over brew device and let the machine do the work. Its heating system is one that warms water as it travels to the shower head, meaning you don’t have to wait minutes for the water to come to temperature.
Its downsides, few that they are, are its size and price. It’s worth comparing its height to the space between your countertop and kitchen cabinets. As for price, Breville just cut $100 off its hefty $300 tag on Amazon — good for the lowest price the Precision brewer has ever been. —Will Price
Nike React Sneaker Sale
Save $60 Back in April, Nike shut down the 90 Freeway in LA, just as they closed off the Manhattan bridge to celebrate the launch of the new Epic React and React foam. I’ve been running in the Epic Reacts since January of this year, and they’re still the shoe I reach for when I want to feel fast. That and the Odyssey Reacts are ripe for a 5K, 10K or even 15K race. Each is light and springy with plenty of cushion underfoot to keep you feeling like you’re on marshmallows. Both are for neutral runners and weigh less than 10 ounces so that you won’t feel the toll after hundreds of miles. Shop both styles today at JackRabbit and save up to $60. It’s just the kick you need to start logging miles in 2019. — Meg Lappe
Save $220 Released earlier this year, Dyson’s V10 vacuum is the machine that prompted the vacuum giant to cease production and R&D for corded vacuums altogether. It features more power and battery than any cordless vacuum to date, and it’s HEPA-certified filtration system is now fully washable. Emptying the dustbin is also much simpler (and cleaner) now — just slide the handle on the bin forward and it empties in front of your hand, instead of all over it.
Today, the V10 Animal is close to 40 percent off — good for its lowest price ever on Amazon. The “Animal” part of the model name just references the number of additional detachable vacuum heads come with it (Dyson has a breakdown of what you get at the bottom of this page). —Will Price
