We’ve also added a few fitness watch accessories for you!
More now than ever before, Americans are focused on their wellness. We have finally become more mindful of the quality of foods we eat, our daily water intake, the amount of exercise we do, and how much sleep we get.
And, in typical modern fashion, we can rely on technology to keep track of it all – right on our wrists. Fitness watches are not new to the worlds of fashion or wellness, but they’re cheaper than they’ve ever been. For less than $150, you can easily track your heart rate, workouts, sleep, calorie consumption, blood pressure, and even catch up on the latest news.
If there’s one beauty trend over recent years that we consumers can collectively get behind, it’s the rise in affordable, simple-yet-effective skincare brands making high-quality regimens accessible to all. We’ve seen direct-to-retailer brands like The Ordinary and Glossier take over our social feeds, scrolled Reddit threads dedicated to ingredient-forward companies like Paula’s Choice, and discovered several under-the-radar lines with tens of thousands of avid superfans on Amazon. While all that was happening, Amazon itself quietly launched its own skincare brand, Belei.
All of the collections’s products are already well priced (nothing costs over $40), but in a surprising Prime Day turn of events, Amazon is giving you the chance to try one of its most popular new products, the Retinol Refining Moisturizer, for half-off in an act-fast, four-hour Lightning Deal. Rarely do we see coveted beauty products — let alone anti-aging big-hitters like retinol formulas — with their prices slashed in half, but that’s the Prime Day 2020 way, apparently, and you’re going to want to shop this deal ASAP before it ends tonight at 11:30 p.m. PT (or until supplies last).
The retailer’s first skincare line features well-priced products with heavily researched formulas that aim to deliver you maximum results for minimum financial strain, and consumers can shop stress-free knowing the line is free of sulfates, parabens, phthalates, and fragrance, plus never tested on animals. When the brand first dropped, Kara Trousdale, head of beauty for Amazon’s Private Brands, explained, “We took a simple, no-nonsense approach when creating Belei, developing products with ingredients that are both proven to deliver results and also offer customers great value for the quality.”
You have mere hours to score the Belei Retinol Refining Moisturizer for $17.50 instead of the full price of $35, and considering reviewers’ strong stances on the retinol-laden cream, you do not want to miss your chance to add the anti-aging hero to your daily regimen. In the hundreds of perfect five-star reviews, Amazon shoppers extol the moisturizer’s smooth texture and non-irritating formula, even for sensitive skin.
“I was really pleased that there was just about no fragrance to it, just a clean cream smell,” one such shopper wrote. “It is light and absorbs quickly-and leaves your skin really comfortable and not oily! This guy didn’t break me out at all, which is saying a lot since I can’t look at a new moisturizer without my face breaking out. I really love the dispenser too! Just enough cream comes out and you don’t transfer bacteria to the rest of the jar!”
The moisturizer, which obviously includes retinol — a powerful vitamin A derivative touted for smoothing blemishes and buffing fine lines — also features “it” skincare ingredients hyaluronic acid, a humectant that helps trap in your skin’s moisture, and squalane, an emollient (another key moisturizing pillar) and natural antioxidant. All three work in tandem to reduce early signs of aging and restore your skin’s supple dewiness.

President TrumpDonald John TrumpTwo ethics groups call on House to begin impeachment inquiry against Barr Trump relishes return to large rallies following COVID-19 diagnosis McGrath: McConnell ‘can’t get it done’ on COVID-19 relief MORE on Tuesday praised Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett for her performance before the Senate Judiciary Committee and lashed out at Sen. Cory BookerCory Anthony BookerSenate kicks off fight over Trump’s Supreme Court pick Trump pick noncommittal on recusing from election-related cases Debate is Harris’s turn at bat, but will she score? MORE (D-N.J.) in particular for pressing the judge on the fate of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
“I think Amy is doing incredibly well. It’s been a great day,” Trump told reporters as he left the White House for a campaign rally in Pennsylvania.
The president did not take questions as he departed, but it was apparent he spent a portion of his day watching Barrett’s confirmation hearing. Tuesday marked the second day of the hearing but the first time Barrett took questions from senators.
Trump tweeted shortly before he left about Booker’s line of questioning, which focused on the fate of the ACA.
“How dare failed Presidential Candidate (1% and falling!) @CoryBooker make false charges and statements about me in addressing Judge Barrett,” Trump tweeted of Booker, who dropped out of the Democratic presidential primary months ago.
“Guy is a total loser! I want better Healthcare for far less money, always protecting people with Pre-existing conditions. He has done nothing on Healthcare, cost or otherwise, or virtually anything else. An empty suit!!!” the president added.
….protecting people with Pre-existing conditions. He has done nothing on Healthcare, cost or otherwise, or virtually anything else. An empty suit!!!
Trump has not presented any health care plan to replace ObamaCare, but his administration is suing to dismantle it. The Supreme Court is slated to hear a case on the health care law next month, something that has been a clear focus for Democrats as they question Barrett.
During his time questioning the judge, Booker pointed to Trump’s tweet while he was campaigning for president that he would appoint only judges who would overturn the Affordable Care Act.
“Is it unreasonable for people to fear… that the ACA would be overturned if you were confirmed to the court?” Booker asked.
“I want to stress to you, Sen. Booker, as I’ve stressed to some of your colleagues today, that I am my own person. I’m independent under Article III, and I don’t take orders from the executive branch or the legislative branch,” Barrett responded.
Booker also asked Barrett whether presidents should commit to a peaceful transfer of power, a clear nod to Trump’s refusal to do so in recent weeks should he lose the election next month. Barrett sought to avoid the question, noting that she felt she may be stepping into a political matter, but said a peaceful transfer of power has been a hallmark of the

Your genes can tell a lot about you. By going beyond your family tree, you can uncover ancestry markers in your DNA that give you insight into your ancestry and your health. 23andMe is ranked as the best DNA testing kit by many reviewers, and it’s now discounted to just $99.00 for health and ancestry, making it a great buy whether you want it for yourself or as an early holiday gift for a loved one.
It works with a simple saliva test you perform at home and send to 23andMe. This test collects your DNA, and the extracted genetic data reveals your ancestral composition and even the percentage of DNA that you share with Neanderthals, which interbred with early humans.
This offer also includes health insights, providing you with information about how your genetics can influence your chances of developing certain health conditions or if you are a carrier for some inherited conditions.
This DNA kit can identify health-related genetic markers for diseases such as celiac disease, late-onset Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.
It can also look for genetic markers for diseases like Type 2 diabetes, using your genetics, ethnicity and age to calculate a percentage likelihood of developing the disease. The test also looks at a gene associated with muscle composition to reveal whether your composition is common or not in elite athletes. The test will also indicate whether the subject is a carrier of genetic traits such as cystic fibrosis, sickle cell anemia and hereditary hearing loss.
There’s even a “cilantro taste aversion” test that will let you know whether you are genetically predisposed to dislike cilantro. Perhaps, you already knew though?
23andMe received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in April 2017 for their kits to report whether customers have hereditary traits that put them at risk for developing genetic diseases, according to the Los Angeles Times. However, the presence of a genetic marker for a health disorder does not necessarily mean that the person will develop that disease, the LA Times reported.

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky’s governor said Monday that he kept up a busy work schedule despite being confined to the governor’s mansion after being around someone who later tested positive for COVID-19.
Gov. Andy Beshear said he will follow the advice of state public health officials in determining how long he and his family remain quarantined at the mansion. His next COVID test is expected to be Tuesday and then Friday, he said. He added he tested negative last week.
