I'm an Amazon Shopping Editor, and These Are 5 Thanksgiving Deals I'm Adding to My Cart
Black Friday technically starts tomorrow, but thanks to Amazon's first ever 48-hour Black Friday event, the retailer has already dropped thousands of (really good) deals. That means you can actually do all your shopping today if you wanted to, because products across all categories from beauty to home to fashion are majorly marked down. You'll find some of the best deals ever on big brands like Apple, Levi's, and Bose, and a handful of rare discounts from premium beauty brands that don't often go on sale like Mario Badescu, OPI, Redken, and Avene.
Here are the five Thanksgiving deals I'm adding to my Amazon cart:
- Smith & Cult Nail Polish, Fauntleroy, $13 (Originally $18)
- Buxom Full Force Plumping Lipstick, Baller, $14 (Originally $20)
- Ewedoos Fleece Lined Leggings with Pockets, $28 with Prime (Originally $40)
- White Mountain Bari Clog, from $30 (Originally $69)
- Crest Whitening Emulsions Leave-on Whitening Kit, $40 with coupon (orig. $60)
- BONUS PICK: Mario Badescu Facial Spray, $5 (Originally $7)
Ewedoos Fleece Lined Leggings with Pockets
I bought these Ewedoos leggings last year and loved them so much that I immediately bought another. I practically lived in them all winter, and I'm definitely taking advantage of this Prime member-exclusive deal to stock up on some news pairs. They're thick but breathable, have pockets, and most importantly, will keep you warm even on the chilliest of days. Trust me and add two pairs of Ewedoos' fleece lined leggings to your cart off the bat — you'll thank me later.

Smith & Cult Nail Polish
Smith & Cult nail polish is on sale. I repeat, Smith & Cult nail polish is on sale! This brand's luxe polish is rarely discounted, so I'm definitely excited to add a couple of bottles to my cart. There are several deals available, but I'm thinking of going with Fauntleroy, which is a pretty, pale mauve that'll go with anything. I'm also eyeing Kings & Thieves, a deep and dark blue, and Palace in Wonderland, a bright metallic pink. (These would also be a super cute choice for stocking stuffers.)

Buxom Full Force Plumping Lipstick
Buxom is known for its iconic lip plumping balm that thousands of people love, so I can't resist trying its plumping lipstick for just $14. It's made with hyaluronic acid, and customers say that it has a "mild" plumping effect that keeps lips looking "hydrated" and doesn't dry up, which is what I'm looking for. I'm hoping the red Baller shade is good enough to be my holiday lipstick this year.

White Mountain Bari Clog
Fall is the season of wearing controversial shoes. Whether you love your faux shearling Birkenstocks, micro Ugg boots, or fuzzy lined Crocs, they're all considered not-so-cute by dozens of people. That brings me to an older controversial fall shoe trend that is new again this year: clogs. Everyone from Jennifer Garner to Claire Danes has been wearing some version of it, and I'm intrigued. Depending on what brand you're looking at, they can get expensive, but these clogs from White Mountain are as low as $30 right now. Shoppers say that they're "higher quality" than expected, and even "comparable to Birkenstock."

Crest Whitening Emulsions Leave-on Whitening Kit
Crest's whitening collection is pretty pricey, so I'm always inclined to buy one of its whitening kits when it goes on sale. This on-the-go kit features the brand's new hydrating whitening gel and a wand applicator, which you just apply to your teeth for one minute with no rinsing required. Crest says you'll experience "virtually no sensitivity," so you can use it up to four times a day, and reviewers seem to agree it works as advertised.
One customer wrote: "I've tried almost every whitening tool/trick and nothing worked like this. Very easy to apply and it has a minty taste. I did only my top teeth just to try it out to see the difference and wow! In [three] days (using [four] times a day) I noticed a HUGE difference. I'm amazed."

Mario Badescu Facial Spray
My bonus purchase is going to be Mario Badescu's mega popular rosewater facial spray, which is just $5 right now for the two-ounce size. That price is pretty much unbeatable, and I may just purchase a few bottles so I can always have extras in my bags and at my desk. Plus, they make great stocking stuffers, and who doesn't love being gifted Mario Badescu? All the other variations of the spray, including the lavender, orange blossom, and green tea options, are on sale, too. (Note that this only ships on orders over $25.)
