I Shop Amazon for a Living—and Here's Everything I'm Getting From Its Big Memorial Day Sale
As a shopping editor, I'm always discovering nifty products and pretty pieces, so my virtual shopping cart tends to fill up fast. But I always wait for a big sale before checking out, which is why I'm taking advantage of Amazon's early Memorial Day deals.
Amazon released droves of markdowns ahead of Memorial Day weekend with discounts up to 70 percent off. And while you could wait until the weekend to shop, impressive deals may sell out before then. There are early deals on all kinds of summer essentials you can put to use this weekend, including sunscreen, swimsuit coverups, and beach bags, which are just a few of the items I'm snagging on sale this week.

Sales are a great time to stock up on anything you use regularly, and for me, that's an array of skincare and beauty products. My go-to bronzer, Mineral Fusion's clean Luster duo, and my favorite mascara, L'Oreal Paris's Lash Paradise, are both on sale. I'm also grabbing a few bottles of Vichy's anti-aging broad spectrum facial sunscreen, which is now $23.
And instead of sitting in the sun, I always fake a glow with a few daily drops of SOL by Jergens self-tanner facial oil mixed in with my daily moisturizer. The natural-looking tanner mixes in with any moisturizer, serum, or sunscreen, and it's earned 2,400 five-star ratings from fellow shoppers who swear by it. Given how often I apply it in the summer, I'll probably grab a few bottles while it's discounted.
To get ready for the beach days ahead, I'm also grabbing a new wide brim hat. I've been eyeing Lanzom's straw sun hat with 19,000 five-star ratings for weeks now, and I love that it provides sun protection with its 50 UPF material. Its flexible design also makes it roll up and pack if I'm tight on space. It's one of Amazon's best-selling hats overall, and I know the neutral color will complement almost everything in my closet.
And I can't stop marveling over Odyseaco's mesh beach bag, which features a built-in cooler. The clever two-in-one bag comes with a removable insulated cooler that easily attaches with a zipper. It's also earned rave reviews from owners and more than 1,700 perfect ratings. It will come in handy for day-trips, beach visits, and park get-togethers with friends. And owners love its padded strap that makes it comfortable to carry.
These early Memorial Day sales are just the start, and I'm sure a few more things will find their way into my cart before the week is over. Shop more editor-loved deals below, or head to Amazon's huge hub of deals to browse them all.
