Dermstore Sale Picks
COSRX: 20% Off
Hardly a week goes by without me singing the praises of CORSX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid (reviewed here). To say this beta-hydroxy acid treatment is "life-changing" for breakouts, pigmentation and dull skin would not be an understatement!
Paula’s Choice: 20% Off
If you ask me, everyone can use some niacinamide in their routine, since it treats acne, pigmentation, redness, dullness, wrinkles and more. I think Paula's Choice 10% Niacinamide Booster is the best because of its high 10 percent concentration and thin, watery texture that doesn't pill underneath other products.
Caudalie: 20% Off
Caudalie Instant Foaming Cleanser has long been a staple for me because it effectively removes dirt, oil and makeup without drying or stripping my skin. Plus, it's sulfate-free—even though it produces a satisfying foam.
Arcona: 20% Off
Retinaldehyde is one of the best types of retinoids to include in your routine. As the direct precursor to retinoic acid (active vitamin A), it is about 20 times more active than retinol, but not as irritating. You can find it in Arcona Advanced "A" Serum, which also has lactic acid and anti-aging peptides. This one is also good for acne-prone skin!
Verso: 20% Off
Another retinoid that deserves your attention is retinyl retinoate, the star ingredient in Verso Super Facial Serum. This is a new type of retinoic acid ester that is eight times more potent than retinol, without the irritation, and can treat both wrinkles and breakouts. That makes this creamy serum suitable for even sensitive skin.
Juice Beauty: 20% Off
I have high standards when it comes to sunscreens, and Juice Beauty SPF 30 Oil-Free Moisturizer ticks off all my boxes. It has 20 percent zinc oxide for complete broad-spectrum protection, is oil-free and silicone-free, and feels moisturizing but not greasy on my skin.
NUORI: 20% Off
NUORI Protect+ Facial Cream is from a Nordic natural skincare brand that's all about freshness—products are made in small batches every 10 to 12 weeks, and have a six-month shelf life for optimal potency. This cream is loaded with squalane, jojoba, niacinamide and shea butter, and no silicones.
Foreo: 20% Off
Once you try a silicone cleansing brush, you won't know how you lived without it—and you'll never go back to the kind with harsh nylon bristles. The Foreo Luna 2 for Combination Skin is super gentle but effective, not to mention antibacterial and waterproof. I use mine virtually every day!
Joanna Vargas: 20% Off
If you're looking for a new vitamin C serum, Joanna Vargas Rescue Serum is worth a look. It stars ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate, a vitamin C derivative that brightens, fades dark spots and boosts collagen. And it's made with just six ingredients in total.
First Aid Beauty: 20% Off
First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads are one of the best gentle acid exfoliants I've tried, and should be tolerated by almost everyone. They have lactic and glycolic acids to dissolve dead skin, and are high in aloe vera, glycerin and cucumber water.
Herbivore: 15% Off
Most face oil blends tend to oxidize too fast (and generate the free radicals we're trying to avoid). But not Herbivore Orchid Facial Oil, made with stable fractionated coconut oil, camellia oil, jojoba and squalane. It's super lightweight and smells so good!
Dermalogica: 20% Off
There's a reason Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant has been a bestseller for years. It's not quite a scrub, but a unique enzyme-based exfoliating powder that activates upon contact with water. When you rinse it off, your skin is baby-soft.
NuFace: 20% Off
Microcurrent is one of the few DIY skincare treatments that actually does work, so you can't go wrong with the NuFace Trinity Facial Toning Kit. The device uses painless electrical current to give your facial muscles a workout, helping to lift and tone.
Bioderma: 20% Off
If you're anything like me, you buy Bioderma Sensibio H2O in bulk, so now is a good time to stock up! This cult favourite micellar water effortlessly removes makeup and cleans your skin (yes, you can use it instead of a regular cleanser), and it never causes irritation.
RMS Beauty: 20% Off
What's the best trick to make your skin look instantly healthier? RMS Beauty Living Luminizer, of course! No other highlighter compares to its natural-looking glow, and the ingredients are all-natural and organic. I wear this daily!
Slip: 20% Off
Your skin deserves the best beauty sleep, and the Slip Pure Silk Pillowcase will help you get it. Made from high-quality, machine-washable silk, it reduces facial friction (which contributes to wrinkles) and won't draw moisture away from your skin like cotton can.
