Best Prime Day deals on those annoying (but inevitable) purchases!

Guess what day it is? Yes, you've got it – Amazon Prime Day 2023, and the deals this year are hotter than ever. We've been on a mission, hunting down all the best bargains on those everyday things you just can't avoid buying. Think household basics and personal care must-haves. Ready to jump in and make those boring purchases a bit more exciting? Let's do this!

Inevitable Purchases


Sun Bum is our very favorite sunscreen of all time EVER. I order this stuff every year online because it's SUPER hard to find my favorite SPF (15) that allows you to still get a tan, but stay protected, in-store. It's literally the perfect formula and that's why it's the best sunscreen in my opinion! I swear by the 15 spray – I've never EVER burned with this stuff on, even when we've vacationed close to the equator in the Dominican Republic or Mexico and been in the hot sun for hours.

I also tend to get heat rash REALLY easily if I use a sunscreen lotion and I'm in very hot tropical climates, so the Sun Bum spray sunscreen also allows my skin to breathe while protecting it.

If you're wondering where to buy your Sun Bum sunscreen, you've come to the right place! Right now you can buy 2, save 40% on 1 on all of THIS Sunbum sunscreen! This is some of our FAVORITE sunscreen to use during the summer, and I'm so excited to be able to save on it!!

Power Strip Surge Protector

If you need a surge protector, you've got some great options on sale today. We have THIS Alexa-enabled one and it's AWESOME because it syncs with your Alexa (echo devices) so we actually plugged our Christmas tree into this and then I could say, “Alexa, turn the Christmas tree off” and she automatically turned this surge protector off! It's also really nice because it has USB plug-ins included.

If you don't need something Alexa-enabled, we have this TWO-PACK too and they're GREAT and a super good deal today at nearly half off!!
