26 Best Amazon Prime Day Deals 2021, According to Vogue Editors

Unlike Black Friday, which always falls the day after Thanksgiving, Amazon keeps us guessing as to when, exactly, we’ll be able to snag the best Amazon Prime Day deals. But at last, the day(s) have arrived, and over here at Vogue, our team is as eager to grab some summertime steals.

This year, most of my colleagues have their eyes set on items that will help improve their health and homes, like aromatic humidifiers and multi-tasking air fryers. Naturally, traveling once again is also top of mind. That’s why we’re also taking advantage of the offerings on luxe luggage sets to help you stylishly pack all of those summer outfits. Speaking of clothes, of course, we’ve also unearthed some treasures in the fashion department, from a tennis skirt that’s cute enough to be worn just about anywhere and a retro graphic tee.

All these and more of the best Amazon Prime Day deals taking place this year. See below to take a peek at our carts.

I did my research, I read countless reviews online, and I finally decided that today was the day to lean into my skincare routine and purchase Sunday Riley C.E.O. 15% Vitamin C Brightening Serum. While I can’t turn back the biological clock, I can start taking care of my skin and vitamin C has some major powers. It is said to help with premature wrinkling (ok yes, sold, sign me up) and hydrate the skin. Having used Sunday Riley products before, I’m eager to try this one out!

For years, I’ve been intimidated by the espresso machine—and their price tags! I don’t know, for certain, if having an espresso machine on my kitchen counter will transform me into an at-home doppio maker but I’m considering Gevi’s 15 Bar espresso maker (and milk frother!) as part of my starter kit. And I know we’re barley into summer, but this lovely lace-trimmed blouse from Rodarte has me excited about fall fashion.

Over quarantine, I found myself researching low-maintenance, preventative skin care routines. During that process, I came across the Frownies facial patches. These patches restrict the muscles when you’re sleeping, preventing creases on your skin. They have been around since 1889 with a cult following, so they must be doing something right. Best part is that the patches are easy to use and seamlessly became apart of my nightly routine.

I’ve been thinking about investing in an Instant Pot. I’m hopeless in the kitchen, but hoping this will make the thought of cooking slightly less hopeless.

Right now, I’m into all-things wellness related. So I’m turning my bathroom into a mini spa with this little bidet attachment, and I’m boosting my energy with these multivitamins.

I’ve run out of my favorite brow product just in time to restock during Amazon Prime Day.

I just moved into a new place, and I think it’s the perfect moment to finally buy an air fryer. I plan on air frying every meal and snack, dessert included.

This summer, I’m excited to dress up again and I’m especially loving whimsical, fun pieces, like these vegan leather bags.

This past year has taught me the art of wanderlust manifestation. I’ve had to trade voyages across the Aegean Sea for mundane trips to and from the grocery store. My Amazon picks are stamping my passport for a trip to the French Riviera, basking under the hot summer sun on the beaches of Saint-Tropez—even if it’s just in my own backyard. All that’s missing is a cold bottle of Veuve and a few friends to santé with!

I could not be more excited to start traveling again. I have been needing a new luggage set but held off given the travel restrictions over the last year and a half. I prioritize durability, space and easy rolling wheels when buying luggage so this will do the trick!

I have been thinking about doing 23andMe for eons, and finally I’m ordering the kit. Am I better suited to running short or long distance? Do I like cilantro? Do I sneeze when I look at bright lights? You’d think I know, but I’d love to see what my genes say!

I’m in the process of switching out all my hair products to plant-based solutions—anything with synergetic fragrances is out! I’ve found it can be quite challenging to find products that are naturally scented, but thankfully La Tierra Sagrada fits the bill. My hair is a sponge for extra moisturizing  conditioners so their hair masque is a good match for me, plus it contains Pali Santo which I think smells divine.

I got this as a gift for my dad for Christmas and I’ve been very jealous of his herb selfies (this thing grows like crazy!) so now I’ve decided to invest in one for myself. No more animals eating my herb garden now that I can grow them indoors all year long.

I have my eye on JW Pei’s shoulder bags this Prime Day to tote around all summer. They are the perfect size for all of my core essentials for day or night. Plus, EmRata makes a strong case for it as the ultimate it-bag. The best news? They are all under $100.

Just a few days into my new apartment means I’m in full blown home mode! And with an unreasonable amount of tabs open and shopping carts filled with little gadgets, the Levoit humidifier is one of the items on the top of my list for APD! And as we begin to regularly return to the office, my acupuncture schedule has gone out the window, and—I must admit—my mind and body miss it! What sounds better than laying down an acupressure mat in the comfort of your own home after a long day’s work? Bring on the relaxation please!

Last year during the peak of the pandemic, I desperately looked to yoga as a coping mechanism to deal with all of my stress and anxiety—I’ve been thankfully doing it every day since! As I continue to grow my practice, I’m looking forward to tossing my shabby yoga mat out in exchange for Gaiam’s non-slip version (which also features a beautiful print), and to slip on their performance gloves so I can hold my favorite poses longer.

I have taken up tennis again recently, and have had my eye on a few solid white tennis skirts that are just as aesthetically pleasing as they are functional.

I’m a sucker for vintage… and Prince! I feel like this could be such a fun graphic tee to rock in the summer and just a really cool overall collector’s item. It could also make a great gift for the Prince lovers in your life.
