Get piles of crispy fries without piling on the fat with this extra-large air fryer — now down to a slim $70. And it's not just for sides, either: The popular 8-quart multitasker lets you make healthy meals without overheating your kitchen — a thoughtful Mother's Day gift, in our opinion!

"This air fryer has saved me so much time," wrote one five-star reviewer. "With a simple tap, I cook my favorite foods. I love cooking salmon and making sweet potatoes.

Some tasks are best left to robots, and vacuuming is one of them. Robovacs can reach places most standup vacs can't (under beds and sofas) and they don't complain about it. Luckily, we've spotted a popular one for just $70, and it boasts the same features as the big-name brands: powerful cleaning power for carpet and hard floors, auto-recharging, anti-bump tech, cliff-sensing, four cleaning modes and control via voice, app or remote.

"So glad I found this," wrote a grateful reviewer. "It was so easy to get started. I just plugged it in the wall and set the vacuum on top of the stand. The app took minutes to connect and it was vacuuming in no time. I thought my floors were clean until I saw everything that this vacuum cleaner picked up. The entire compartment was full. It went over all of my rugs and hard services without any trouble."

When someone as stunning and ageless as actress Salma Hayek shares a beauty tip, our ears perk up. Turns out, this $10 night cream contains her secret weapon skin care ingredient: Tepezcohuite. The bark and leaves of the Tepezcohuite tree (often referred to as the "Mexican skin tree") have long been used in traditional medicine, and the ingredient is the star of this face and body cream, along with vitamins A and E. We haven't seen the price drop this low in over a year!

One of some 4,000 five-star fans reported: "This cream is the best thing I’ve purchased in facial cream in 20 years. It is thick and a bit gritty, goes on really smooth. ... I have horrible rosacea and my skin is very sensitive but this lotion works wonders. My skin is softer, more even in tone, for the price, it can't be beat."

Suck the gunk out of the air before you breathe it with this majorly marked-down, large-capacity purifier. The 1,076-square-foot capacity machine features double inlets (front and rear) to catch pollen, dust, dander, odors and more. There are four speeds and three timer settings.

One "very happy" five-star fan wrote: "My family and I live in Louisville, Kentucky, a city ranked as one of the worst to live in for allergy sufferers. We have ours set to automatically monitor the air and change fan speed when needed. ... Most of the time we can't hear it running, but if we burn something on the stove, open windows or do anything that puts contaminants in the air, the fan will speed up and clean the air quickly. ... Over the years we've tried several purifiers ... but this has made the biggest improvement."
