With Amazon Prime Day in full swing, you're probably wondering what's worth shopping. While it's true that you'll find some of the best deals in the home and tech categories, there are surprisingly tons of really good beauty and fashion deals. In fact, Prime Day is one of my favorite sales events to stock up on some of my go-to toiletries, and I also consider it one of the best times to buy something that's been on your wish list for a while. Popular brands that don't often go on sale like Sunday Riley, Calvin Klein, Color Wow, Adidas, Anastasia Beverly Hills, and more are offering markdowns on their best-selling products this year, so it's a good idea to take advantage while you can.

While there are over two million deals live on Amazon right now, these are the 10 things I consider a must-buy this Prime Day:

Baleaf High Waist Biker Shorts

biker shorts

Whether you like to wear biker shorts to lounge around the house, as a fashion statement, or to actually workout in, this pair from Baleaf are apparently the biker shorts to own. Over 34,000 Amazon shoppers are obsessed with them, making them top-sellers in not just one but four categories on the site. I'm buying them to wear under my dresses this summer to avoid chafing, but they'll probably be great for going out while running errands, too.

Innisfree Cherry Blossom Dewy Glow Cream


OK, I'm really excited about this deal. Back in March, this moisturizer made its rounds on TikTok thanks to makeup artist Mikayla Nogueria, who used it while showing how to get super glowy skin. The Innisfree jelly cream was out of stock for months after this video, and now it's back — and discounted — for Prime Day. I love that it has niacinamide in it, which is great for tons of things, including dehydrated skin, fine lines, large pores, and hyperpigmentation. I don't know about you, but I'm ready to get my #glow on.

Woyyho Longline Camisole Bra Top

Strappy Wirefree Removable Pads Yoga Camisole Crop Top 2 Pack

After buying (and loving) these cute camisole bralettes from Amazon last month, I've been looking for something similar. I came across these longline bra tops recently, which come in pretty muted pink and purple colors. I like their double-strap design, and they're technically sports bras, so they're made with a seamless, stretchy, and moisture-wicking fabric. You can get a pack of two for $25 right now, and I'm opting for the black and pink combo.

Avene Thermal Spring Water Face Mist

Amazon Lifestyle Must Haves

If you often have irritated skin or experience redness, this face mist is a life saver. I've been using it for quite a while now, but recently I've been grabbing it as much as three to four times a day due to the hot weather. I'm also on a new skincare regimen that can leave me feeling itchy and dry, but once I use this mist, my skin instantly calms down. I'm planning on getting another big sized bottle since it's only $13, plus a few travel-sized ones so I can mist when I'm on the go.

Seasum Butt-Lifting Leggings

I still have not bought the leggings that broke the internet, but now that they're at the lowest price they've been all year, I'm finally taking the plunge. It doesn't seem like you can really go wrong with Seasum's butt-lifting leggings — in addition to giving you an enhanced derrière, shoppers say they're so comfy, they'd be just as happy with them even if they didn't do "any magic bum stuff." I love that they come in an insane number of colors (93, to be exact) and I'll probably get them in both black and a fun tie-dye option.

St. Tropez Classic Bronzing Mousse


I've never used self-tanner before, partly because I'm scared things will go haywire, but I'm willing to give St. Tropez's classic bronzing mousse a shot (especially for 30 percent off). Not only is the mousse approved by celebs like Kim Kardashian and Gigi Hadid, but it has over 6,200 five-star ratings on Amazon too. Shoppers say it dries really fast, leaves a "perfect" color, and that it's easy enough to do "every Sunday without procrastinating." I mean, I'm sold. Sun-kissed tan of my dreams, here I come.

Belei Retinol Moisturizer

Belei by Amazon: Retinol Vitamin A Refining Moisturizer

This purchase actually isn't for me, it's for my mom. I've gifted my mom tons of beauty products from high-end brands, but out of all of them she really loves Belei, which is Amazon's affordable skincare line. Since one of her favorite items is its vitamin C moisturizer (she swears it keeps her young), I'm planning on getting her this retinol moisturizer. The moisturizer tackles fine lines and wrinkles while keeping skin hydrated and plump thanks to ingredients like hyaluronic acid and squalane. It's $20 right now, and shoppers say it's just as effective as $100 products.

Orolay Down Jacket

This is another internet famous item I don't happen to own (I'm not very trendy, apparently), but I'm adding the viral, Oprah-loved Amazon coat to my wardrobe ASAP thanks to the new pastel colors it's available in. Not only did it get a color upgrade but the coat itself has a new design, too — this option is even more stylish than the original (which is also on sale). Plus, it still has some of the best features, including the six roomy pockets and a super warm down fill.

Cosrx Snail Mucin Sheet Masks

People are obsessed with Korean beauty brand Cosrx's snail mucin products, and I'm really excited to try these snail mucin-infused sheet masks. They're made with the brand's best-selling Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence, which was a staple in my routine a few years ago. The ingredient is a huge hydration booster, and also works to repair damaged skin and soothe irritation.

Calvin Klein Invisibles Hipster Panty


I'm always stocking up on seamless underwear for the summer, and I love how sleek these Calvin Klein panties are. Shoppers say they're comfy, breathable, and so smooth under clothing that they're only underwear they're willing to wear under leggings. I like the classy colors they come in and that they're a bit cheeky. They also come in a thong version, and you can save on both individual panties and bulk packs for Prime Day.
