Looking for a little R&R? These self-care Prime Day deals will get you just that, from shower steam treatments to weighted blankets

Amazon Prime Day is officially here and if you're like us, you'll be scouring the site for deep discounts on everything from tech goodies to beauty buys. (Speaking of, check out these fab Amazon Prime Day beauty picks from My Imperfect Life's beauty editor.) But self-care Prime Day deals are also very much on our radar this year.

Well-versed in all things wellness, I've narrowed down the best markdowns and product picks from this year's Prime Day haul, including post-workout massage aids, calm-boosting essential oils for bathtime, and the viral lip mask that is a go-to in our nightly skincare routines.

Whether you're looking to restock up on your favorite health and wellness favorites or simply want to try out something new during your self-care practice, here's what I'll be adding to my check-out cart during the Amazon Prime Day sale.

RENPHO Foot Massager Machine with Heat Shiatsu Deep Kneading: ̶w̶a̶s̶ ̶$̶1̶9̶9̶.̶9̶9, now $99.98 (save $100.01) | Amazon

I visited friends recently who had a whole massage chair in their guest room, which I used to very relaxing effect during my time there. Now, my apartment-dwelling self can't fit an entire massage operation in my home, but this foot massager is a great space-saving compromise equipped with a rotation ball, rolling stick and heating. A deep-kneading foot massage under my desk while I'm working? Don't mind if I do!

LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask: ̶w̶a̶s̶ ̶$̶2̶4 now $16.80 (save $7.20) | Amazon

The Laneige leave-on lip mask is an absolute staple in our nighttime wellness routine, thanks to the intense dose of moisture and antioxidants it provides via a mix of Berry Fruit Complex™, Murumuru seed and Shea butter. So when we see a good mark-down—it's a solid 30% off during Amazon Prime Day—we can't help but snatch up a few extra jars for our beauty stash.

Casper Weighted Blanket: ̶w̶a̶s̶ ̶$̶1̶8̶9 now $113.40 (save $75.60) | Amazon

I know, it's hotter than the devil's armpit out there right now, but in the heat, I can't help but dream up cozy cold-weather vibes of the seasons to come, and the picture just isn't complete without a good weighted blanket. This Casper option—which comes in three weights (10, 15 and 20 pounds) and four colors (Dusty Rose, Indigo, Grey and the terracotta-like Fireside)—is up to 40% off during Prime Day.

FOREO LUNA 3 Facial Cleansing Brush: ̶w̶a̶s̶ ̶$̶2̶1̶9 now $109.50 (save $109.50) | Amazon

In order to remember to always wash off my makeup at the end of a long night, I've taken to turning my cleansing routine into a full-on ritual, which includes a happy little scrub session with the FOREO Luna.

Discounted 50% during Prime Day, the cleansing brush satisfying washes off all of the impurities and wear of my day and leaves my skin looking hydrated and plump, all while basically giving me a face massage from the comfort of my own bathroom.

Body Restore Shower Steamers Aromatherapy 15 Packs: ̶w̶a̶s̶ ̶$̶2̶9̶.̶9̶9 now $19.99 (save $10) | Amazon

Speaking of turning your bathroom into a spa, shower steamers like these TikTok-approved Body Restore aromatherapy bombs are a relaxing AF way to transform your daily rinse into a meditative calm-down. Just plop one of the tablets with you in your shower and let the tea tree essential oils help to wash your worries away.

Theragun Mini 2.0 ̶w̶a̶s̶ ̶$̶1̶9̶9 now $169 (save $30) | Amazon

Again, I live in a tiny-ass New York apartment so I don't have space for a lot of extraneous wellness gadgets. That's what makes the Theragun Mini so great: the handheld electric massage gun is smaller than the O.G. Theragun but still packs all of the deep muscle-mushing power you expect from the brand, with three attachments and three speeds. Shoulder knots be gone!
