Dermstore Beauty Refresh Sale Picks
Allies of Skin: 20% Off
If you saw my best of 2021 list, then you know I fell in love with two products from Allies of Skin last year. The Prebiotics & Niacinamide Pore Refining Booster has 10% niacinamide and a gel-like texture, while the Molecular Saviour Probiotics Treatment Mist has 5% niacinamide in a moisturizing mist. I’m a big fan of both!
Verso: 20% Off
Verso is a minimalist skincare line that I always recommend for its “Retinol 8” complex—it contains a next-gen retinoic acid ester that is eight times stronger than retinol, without the irritation. You can safely use it in the daytime with this lightweight Daily Facial Fluid (which also has niacinamide). It’s in the Eye Cream, too!
COSRX: 20% Off
Indie Lee: 20% Off
I own almost every product from Indie Lee—that’s how much I love this clean skincare line (which I reviewed here). One product that I consistently recommend for all skin is the Brightening Cleanser. It’s an ultra-mild, sulfate-free gel that removes dirt, oil and makeup in one step, without drying or stripping your skin. Other top picks include the Squalane Facial Oil and the Active Oil-Free Moisturizer.
REN Clean Skincare: 20% Off
REN Clean Skincare is another clean line that is almost always in my skincare routines. As I mentioned in my 2021 favourites, I love the Clean Screen Mineral SPF 30 sunscreen and the Evercalm Gentle Cleansing Gel (which has a similar texture to iS Clinical Cleansing Complex!). With spring hopefully just around the corner, the AHA Smart Renewal Body Serum is also an amazing product to get rid of any dull, dead skin on your legs.
Osmosis Beauty: 20% Off
I discovered Osmosis Beauty last year when I was looking for retinaldehyde serums, and the brand’s MD Renew Advanced Retinal Serum does not disappoint. It’s a high-strength anti-aging and anti-acne treatment made with 0.15% retinaldehyde along with niacinamide, lactic acid and peptides (and no silicones). Retinaldehyde is the direct precursor to retinoic acid (active vitamin A), so it’s more potent than retinol!
Avène: 20% Off
Avène is one of the best French pharmacy brands, and you’re probably familiar with their famous Thermal Spring Water mist. But what you might not know is that they also make a retinaldehyde treatment, TriAcnéal Night Smoothing Lotion, with an impressive 0.1% of the active ingredient. It’s both anti-aging and anti-acne (although you don’t need to have acne to use it), and surprisingly, is silicone-free.
Vichy: 20% Off
Doctor Rogers RESTORE: 20% Off
If Doctor Rogers RESTORE isn’t on your radar yet, it should be. It’s a dermatologist-formulated line that’s made with only clean ingredients and nothing harmful or irritating. They have a Face Cream as well as a lighter Face Lotion, and both are comprised of skin-friendly squalane, niacinamide, and Centella Asiatica extract.
First Aid Beauty: 20% Off
First Aid Beauty never lets me down—it’s one of the most reliable brands for sensitive skin-friendly products that work. As I mentioned in my face moisturizer guide, their Ultra Repair Cream is my top intensive moisturizer recommendation for dry skin. I also adore the Face Cleanser (reviewed here), and the Facial Radiance Pads are an excellent gentle exfoliant.
