Olaplex no.7 bonding oil just £18 in pre-Prime Day sale

Not all haircare brands are made equal. And there’s one that stands out from the rest, and it’s of course Olaplex. The brand’s products work, but naturally, they don’t come cheap. Ahead of Prime Day, Amazon has slashed the price of one of our favourite hair oils.

Olaplex No.7 bonding oil: Was £36, now £17.98, Amazon.co.uk

When we reviewed the brand’s entire range, we noticed serious improvements in our lack-lustre locks. And its bonding oil was a firm favourite. Our writer noted that despite its “lightweight formula, it is very nourishing and didn’t leave our hair feeling heavy or greasy”. The “other great thing about the bonding oil is that it provides up to 230C heat protection, as such, it’s great to use before using heat on your hair”, they added. A little goes a long way, so you’ll unlikely make a dent in the bottle until you’re many months down the line.

Get 30% off Lego technic Ferrari

Lego technic Ferrari 488 GTE AF Corse #51: Was £169.99, now £118.99, Amazon.co.uk

“If the thrill of the build appeals above all else, this Lego version of the famous Ferrari will keep you transfixed,” noted our review of the best Lego sets for adults. “With 1,677 pieces, it took us a couple of days to finish the 48cm long car and it was a complex and occasionally fiddly build that really kept us challenged,” but the “detail throughout makes it fun”, they found. With a whopping 30 per cent off, this is the perfect time to snap up a new Lego set.

These Apple products have rare savings thanks to pre-Prime Day sale

While it’s difficult to know the exact Apple devices that will be reduced this Prime Day – Amazon keeps most of its deals hush-hush until the big day itself – we’re expecting that AirPods, Apple Watches, iPhones, MacBooks, iPads and more will receive a healthy discount.

Luckily for those that can’t wait for the two-day shopping bonanza, we’re already seeing some early deals that are worth shouting so we thought we’d share some here:

Apple AirTag, four-pack: Was £99, now £80.25, Amazon.co.uk

Save almost 20 per cent on a four-pack of Apple’s clever AirTag possession trackers. Using a Bluetooth connection to your iPhone, these will help you locate lost items they are attached to and can even use the location of millions of other iPhones to help you track down dropped keys or a misplaced bag. Our reviewer said: “The AirTag is incredibly cheap for what it is, and it works like an absolute charm. For any iPhone owner prone to losing things, investing in a pack of four might be one of the best decisions you ever make.”

Apple AirPods max: Was £549.99, now £429, Amazon.co.uk

This deal sees a 22 per cent discount on Apple’s flagship headphones, the AirPods max. Introduced in late 2020, the AirPods max offer greater noise cancellation and improved sound quality over the smaller AirPods Pro (was £239, now £189, Amazon.co.uk), with our reviewer describing them as “an astonishing achievement”.

Your vacuuming done for you with this nifty device

Eufy BoostIQ roboVac 11S: Was £189.99, now £129.99, Amazon.co.uk

While we haven’t tested this exact model from Eufy, the brand has landed two of its hoovers in our round-up of the best robot vacuum cleaners so it’s safe to say we’re suckers (pun fully intended). The newest of the bunch, this model boasts “BoostIQ technology” which should pack a suction punch when it’s most needed, all the while making no more noise than a microwave. Expect a cleaning time of up to 100 minutes and, when the little gadget starts running out of juice it will automatically find its way back to the charging base.

The Nintendo Switch deal you can snap up now

‘Pokémon Legends: Arceus’: Was £49.99, now £39, Amazon.co.uk

While we eagerly await the arrival of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet later this year, the latest instalment, Pokémon Legends: Arceus is currently discounted with a generous 22 per cent saving. In our round-up of the best Switch games, we called Arceus a “gust of fresh air that the series desperately needed”.

Upgrade your hair tools in the pre-Prime Day sale

Shark HD110UK style iQ hair dryer: Was £229.99, now £179, Amazon.co.uk

When it comes to upgrading your beauty tools, Amazon Prime Day is the perfect time to do it. And we’ve just spotted that there’s more than 20 per cent off this piece of kit. It took the top spot in our review of the best hair dryers, with our writer noting that it’s “fast, easy to use and provides excellent results, so every day can be a good hair day”. It has “three speed settings and three heat settings”, so “it puts you firmly in control and helps you to achieve the hair of your dreams at home”.
