Whether you want to try out some new toothpaste or upgrade your portable speakers, today’s best deals are on products that you can definitely have a little fun with.

1. Save $3: This activated charcoal toothpaste that everyone’s talking about
My mouth went completely black the first time I tried this charcoal toothpaste out for myself, and it was seriously gross. Over the course of a few weeks though, I noticed changes in the look and feel of my teeth—namely, they got whiter. If you’ve been meaning to try this out for yourself, it’s a really good time to do it, since you can get Active Wow—the most popular charcoal toothpaste out there now—on sale for $3 off its usual price. Another benefit to charcoal toothpaste is that it’s totally fluoride-free, so if you’ve been looking for an alternative that’ll keep your teeth nice and white, this could be it.

2. 10% off: The best affordable flashlight we’ve ever used
Whether you’re camping or just trying to make sure that your car’s emergency preparedness kit is all good to go, having a flashlight is essential, especially in the event of a crisis. You can totally get your money’s worth with the Anker Bolder LC40, which is the best affordable flashlight we’ve ever tested. In addition to being highly durable, it offers 400 lumens of brightness and has a powerful battery that’s rechargeable, so you don’t have to deal with those weirdly massive batteries that usually come with flashlights. This isn’t the lowest price we’ve ever seen for it, but it’s still a great deal, and it’s especially good to have headed into Labor Day weekend.

3. 25% off: This moisturizing skin cream
Aquaphor is one of those creams that’s just always good to have around (like Noxzema, another personal skincare favorite of mine). It’s especially good to having headed into the fall, since it can help keep your skin soft and moisturized. Right now, you can save an extra 25% on a 14oz. tub of Aquaphor and stock up before the seasons shift, which is as good a time as any to keep your skin nourished.

4. Lowest price alert: Anker Soundcore Wakey Speakers
Anker’s Soundcore speakers are our favorite cheap portable Bluetooth speakers for a number of reasons: the sound quality is great, it’s super portable, and best of all, it’s priced to fit virtually any budget. The one thing thing the original Soundcore doesn’t have though? An alarm clock built in. But now Anker’s given the people what they really want with the Anker Soundcore Wakey, which essentially offers everything that’s great about the Soundcore—wireless functionality, crisp sound quality, the works—but also comes with an alarm clock. You can choose from 15 alarm sounds and also use it as a sort of white noise machine, since you can choose from 10 ambient sounds to drift right off to. Best of all, this is on sale for its lowest price ever, so you can grab this innovative portable speaker for $20 off its usual price. This sale lasts until the 31st too, so grab one while you can.

Right now, you can actually get the upgraded version of our favorite affordable robot vacuum for $70 off. The Eufy RoboVac 11S is a fantastic little device that offers powerful suction at a reasonable price, but the newer 11S Max kicks that up a notch, ensuring that literally no dust bunnies or crumbs are left behind.
