I'm an Amazon Shopping Editor, and These Are 10 (Really Good) Deals You Should Buy From Its Early Holiday Sale

Amazon kicked off it's Epic Deals sale earlier this month, and the retailer is continuing to add major discounts on tons of our favorite brands and products every day. While Amazon frequently has sales, I almost can't believe how good some of the markdowns have actually been, from a $13 luxury mascara to a face lifting device that even celebs use for $50 less. If you missed out on those, don't fret — there are still so many good discounts on customer-loved products live right now, including Apple AirPods, cozy Dearfoams slippers, and a biotin-infused OGX shampoo for $6.

Below, shop the 10 best early holiday deals on Amazon right now:

Covergirl Lash Blast Clean Volume Mascara

Amazon Editor Epic Deals Picks


I have to start with this $5 Covergirl mascara. While I love luxe beauty deals, the ones that end up in my cart most often are drugstore favorites that are dirt cheap thanks to huge discounts. Nearly 3,000 shoppers love Covergirl's clean and cruelty-free Lash Blast mascara, which is formulated with nourishing argan and marula oils and free of parabens, sulfates, talc, and mineral oil. Customers rave that it gives them "gorgeous, long, thick lashes" and "stays on all day." For $5, this is definitely stocking stuffer gold.

OGX Biotin & Collagen Extra Strength Volumizing Shampoo

Another drugstore deal that's just too good to miss out on: OGX's "life saving" thickening shampoo for just $6. The biotin and collagen-infused shampoo is a classic fave amongst 7,800 Amazon shoppers thanks to its "impressive" results that leave a "noticeable difference." Reviewers claim the shampoo has left their fine, thinning hair "so much thicker, fuller, and even softer," and is one of the few volumizing shampoos that "lives up to its advertising and actually works." I don't know about you, but I know I'll be buying a bottle (or two) of OGX's biotin shampoo for myself.

Merokeety Henley Knit Top and Shorts Lounge Set

I own this lounge set, and I love it so much that I'll be giving it to a few people for the holidays. It's so cozy and cute, and I found it to be very true to size and the exact same color as shown in the product image. I especially like the henley top, and think it can be worn out for something like a casual brunch 'fit, if you're into the loungewear-as-outsidewear vibe (I certainly am.) The set is on sale now for just $29, so make sure to grab one for yourself and a friend while the price is this low.

Core 10 Spectrum Jogger Yoga Pant

Amazon Editor Epic Deals Picks
Amazon Editor Epic Deals Picks


I've been on the hunt for some inexpensive, good quality joggers, and I think these yoga-meets-jogger pants from Core 10 fit the bill. I like that the brand took its best-selling yoga leggings (which I own, and can say have a similar fit and feel to Lululemon's Align leggings, BTW) and turned them into joggers, because that means I already know they'll be comfy and flattering. Shoppers say they "feel like butter" and "nicely wick away sweat," and simply love them so much they "wish [they] had a pair for every day of the week."

Dearfoams Fireside Sydney Faux Shearling Slipper

Honestly, who doesn't love receiving a pair of slippers for the holidays? They're a classic gift, and these fuzzy slippers from Dearfoams are such a good pick — and a really good price right now. They come in nine colors, including the good ole' chestnut and white fur combo, all-black, dusty pink, and pretty light and dark blues. No less than 4,300 customers approve of their coziness and comfort, even saying they'll "never go back to Uggs" after wearing them.

AuraGlow Teeth Whitening Kit

Amazon Editor Epic Deals Picks


If you, like me, are one of those people that always has teeth whitening products on their personal holiday shopping list, this is your (our) moment. First of all, this teeth whitening kit has 25,000 five-star reviews. Second of all, it's only $29 right now, thanks to an additional $20 coupon you can clip on the product page. I feel like those two details are convincing enough reasons to add it to your cart, but I'll go on. Many customers say they notice results after just three treatments (and even attach photos with proof!), and that it's "so easy" to use, "barely [has] any taste at all," and that their mouths "feels completely fine afterwards."

Fujifilm Instax Square Instant Camera

I'm a sucker for Fujifilm's Instax cameras, especially when they're on sale. I mean, how pretty are the colors for its square camera? I love both the sleek chalk white and bright terracotta orange. I'm planning on getting this with the intention of gifting it, but honestly, I'll probably end up keeping it for myself. One big perk is that the square film for this camera is larger than Fujifilm's popular Instax Mini 11 camera (which is also on sale).

Dokotoo Fuzzy Open Front Cardigan with Pockets

Amazon Editor Epic Deals Picks


If you've ever wondered what it's like to physically wear a cloud (or, at least, something that "makes you feel like you're a floof floating in the clouds of heaven"), apparently it feels like this fluffy Dokotoo cardigan. Over 6,200 Amazon shoppers have seriously nothing but good things to say about the "soft" and "high quality" cardigan, and a handful of people have actually deemed it the "most wonderful thing" they've ever bought. And according to reviewers, the sky's the limit with how the versatile piece can be worn — take it for a spin on a chilly morning dog walk, wear it as your WFH uniform, or even make a statement in it on a night out. For just $38, I'm sold.

Yankee Candle Large Jar, Autumn Wreath

Yankee Candles are on sale. Which means you're obligated to buy one for yourself, a family member, your best friend, and whoever else is next on your list. Most of its fall candles are discounted right now (their warm, spicy scents make great holiday gifts), but you can also snag some more festive options, like the ever popular Balsam & Cedar, for less, too.

Apple AirPods Pro

I didn't know I needed AirPods until my partner gifted me them a few years ago. Now's your chance to share that same enlightenment with that one person in your life who still doesn't own a pair. All of Apple's AirPods are on sale, starting with its first gen pair at just $119 and extending to the AirPods Max. The AirPods Pro deal is just about the same as it was on Black Friday last year, so I'd say it's a great time to make the investment.
