For certain skincare brands that rarely go on sale, it doesn't get much better than 30% off.
Think: professional-grade and clean beauty lines like EltaMD, iS Clinical, Alpha-H and Arcona, as well as skincare tools from companies such as Foreo, PMD and Dermaflash. The selection is all curated by Dr. Joel Schlessinger, a board-certified dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon who founded LovelySkin way back in 1997.
If you haven't shopped with them before, you'll be happy to know that US shipping is always free, with no minimum purchase. (They also ship internationally.)
Needless to say, this is one online destination that skincare enthusiasts NEED to check out!
Read on for my top picks from LovelySkin's 30% off sale.
LovelySkin Sale Picks
EltaMD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46
If you saw my list of celebrities' favourite skincare products, then you know that EltaMD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46 is one of them! This beloved sunscreen protects with zinc oxide and octinoxate, is totally invisible on the skin, and has 5% niacinamide for extra brightening.
iS Clinical Cleansing Complex
From November 27 to 30, iS Clinical is part of this sale—it's another brand with many celebrity fans. The iS Clinical Cleansing Complex is a gentle, sulfate-free gel cleanser. It's non-drying and suitable for all skin types, especially acne-prone skin.
Foreo Luna 2
It's no secret that I love my Foreo Luna 2—I always recommend it as the best cleansing brush to deep-clean your skin and remove stubborn makeup and sunscreen. Because it has silicone bristles, it's never irritating, and never collects bacteria like nylon brushes can. Everyone needs one of these!
Alpha-H Vitamin Serums Kit
The Alpha-H Vitamin Serums Kit lets you try out four concentrated serums from this cult-favourite brand. (They're also on sale individually!) Vitamin A has 0.5% retinol; Vitamin B has niacinamide and copper peptides; Vitamin C has ethyl ascorbic acid (an effective vitamin C derivative); and Vitamin E has a calming, bioavailable vitamin E derivative.
Arcona Advanced ”A“ Serum
Retinaldehyde is not as well known as retinol, but it's actually a better ingredient because it's stronger and gives you results much faster. Arcona Advanced "A" Serum is one of the few products that contain it, along with lactic acid and peptides. This serum addresses not only anti-aging concerns but also acne.
Sunday Riley C.E.O. 15% Vitamin C Brightening Serum
Sunday Riley C.E.O. 15% Vitamin C Brightening Serum contains 15% of an ultra stable form of vitamin C called tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate. This ingredient has been shown to penetrate more deeply than L-ascorbic acid, and is great for brightening, fading dark spots and even boosting collagen production.
Juice Beauty Blemish Clearing Serum
I'm a huge proponent of salicylic acid for exfoliating, brightening and clearing breakouts—but it's not so easy to find in milder concentrations. That's why I like Juice Beauty Blemish Clearing Serum, which has 0.75%. That makes this serum gentler compared to most BHAs, and suitable for all skin except sensitive.
PMD Personal Microderm Device
I can attest that the PMD Personal Microderm Device is the next best thing to a professional microdermabrasion treatment. This tool uses the same type of exfoliating tip and vacuum action to polish off dead skin cells. I've been using this device this year, and it's crazy how much debris it gets off—it really works!
Fillerina Plus Dermo-Cosmetic Treatment Grade 5
For an alternative to fillers, Fillerina Plus Dermo-Cosmetic Treatment Grade 5 is an option you can do in the comfort of your own home. No, those aren't needles—this is a purely topical hyaluronic acid treatment that you apply daily for 14 days. It gradually and naturally plumps up lines and wrinkles, cheeks and lips!
Jurlique Activating Water Essence
Jurlique Activating Water Essence is one of the best essences I've tried. It's lightweight but hydrating, and made with ingredients like propanediol, glycerin and marshmallow root extract. This would be a good addition to your winter routine to add an extra layer of moisture underneath a cream.
Dermaflash Luxe Anti-Aging Exfoliation Device
Dermaflash Luxe Anti-Aging Exfoliation Device lets you do your own dermaplaning sessions at home. This device safely exfoliates using single-use stainless steel blades, which remove the top layer of skin cells, peach fuzz and debris. Afterward, your face feels unbelievably smooth and soft.
Goldfaden MD Bright Eyes Dark Circle Radiance Concentrate
Goldfaden MD Bright Eyes Dark Circle Radiance Concentrate is the bestselling product from this dermatologist-developed skincare line—which was the first of its kind to use all-clean ingredients. So you're getting the best of both worlds with this eye cream, which is also one of the few dark circle treatments that actually works!
Patchology Perfect Weekend FlashMasque Kit
Patchology Perfect Weekend FlashMasque Kit includes three sheet masks to either share with a friend or keep for yourself. One is for hydrating, one is for brightening and one is for calming redness and irritation.
Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water Cloths
Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water Cloths have a cult following because they're softer and thicker than other face wipes, and are saturated in an oil-free, silicone-free and alcohol-free solution. They get off even waterproof makeup without causing irritation.
Derma E Sensitive Skin Moisturizing Cream
Did you know that Derma E is one of the best brands for simple moisturizers made with clean ingredients? It's true—and Derma E Sensitive Skin Moisturizing Cream is one of my top picks. This cream contains a mix of humectants and emollients, and is fragrance-free and low in in silicone.
LovelySkin VITA-CE with Ferulic Acid
LovelySkin VITA-CE with Ferulic Acid is the creation of LovelySkin founder Dr. Schlessinger, and it's an excellent alternative to much pricier vitamin C serums. With its combination of 15% L-ascorbic acid, 1% vitamin E and 0.5% ferulic acid (and no fragrance), it ticks off all my boxes.
Oxygenetix Oxygenating Acne Control Foundation
Oxygenetix Oxygenating Acne Control Foundation is Kourtney Kardashian's favourite foundation, which she always insists that her makeup artists use. It's a gel-based formula that is fragrance-free and oil-free, with the addition of 2% salicylic acid to fight breakouts.
Fur Stubble Cream
If you struggle with ingrown hairs, razor burn or annoying bumps after hair removal, Fur Stubble Cream is the solution. It's an all-natural, silicone-free body moisturizer infused with softening olive oil, antimicrobial tea tree oil and anti-inflammatory lavender oil. So it does double-duty to clear up irritations while hydrating your skin.
