There is nothing better than a beauty sale. Your favorite products (and ones that have been idly waiting in your cart) on sale? Talk about a good time.
The Summer Sale at Dermstore runs from May 20–May 28 with promo code SUMMER at checkout. Suddenly (almost) everything you have been eyeing is now up to 20 percent off.
One could say they do not need any more beauty products, but I would say that they are wrong. And if the deluge of products has sent you on an overwhelmed frenzy, I am here to break down the best products on sale now. Consider me the modern-day Michelangelo — sculptor of shopping carts everywhere.
A five-minute face-lift. Get it right, get it tight! Thanks to microcurrent technology, we are now able to zap our faces into shape. As you move the device around your face, you stimulate the facial muscles, leading to a reduction in wrinkles and an improvement in skin texture. After one treatment, you will immediately notice a major difference in your skin. This at-home solution is great for anyone who wants to tone, firm and smooth their face.
This high-potency, high-grade lactic acid treatment is a holy grail product. This chemical exfoliator helps you say goodbye to your dead skin cells, which are immediately swept away thanks to its purified grade lactic acid. Prepare to look in the mirror and be greeted by a more youthful and radiant version of yourself.
Every celebrity credits drinking a lot of water and applying sunscreen to their good looks (forgetting the role genetics play, but it’s fine). While slightly irritating at times, it is sound advice. Without sunscreen, you are unprotected against the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays. This puts you on the fast track to aging skin: wrinkles, uneven skin tone and higher risk for skin cancer. However, it is still so easy to skip this step when you are holding a grudge against your sunscreen and its white cast. No more! I am now eager to apply this weightless chemical sunscreen each morning. Its oil-free formula helps alleviate sun damage while simultaneously providing the perfect base for your makeup.
A silk pillowcase often comes with some sticker shock. A luxury good that you don’t need but is on sale … take the excuse and run with it. After one night’s sleep you will notice a major difference in your hair. Suddenly, what was once frizzy and untameable is now smooth, and crease-free. This pillowcase also allows your skin to breathe and many customers claim it helps their acne.
Underneath your beautiful head of hair, your scalp is begging for help. Think about scalp care as an added layer to your skincare routine and exfoliate it the same way you would your skin — without proper scalp exfoliation, the buildup can lead to irritation or dandruff. Apple cider vinegar (ACV) has ample hair benefits, which include restoring your scalp’s pH, hydration and prevention against bacteria. This ACV hair rinse leaves your hair shiny, clean and nourished. Use it once a week to gently remove dirt and buildup from your scalp.
This Harry Josh Pro Dryer has a motor speed of 94 mph, which leads to a faster drying time. It is lightweight and nearly silent (roommates everywhere rejoice!). This no-fuss tool results in sleek, strong and voluminous hair. By investing in a high-quality blow dryer, you prevent damage and save time — you don’t have to overheat the same few strands. Do not be shocked when everyone flocks to you at parties asking where you got your hair done.
This summer sale list would be a total flop if I did not tell you about this bronzy glow oil. Imagine the stunned look on your friends’ faces as you subtly glimmer by the poolside. This product hydrates the skin, smells divine and leads to softer skin. The star ingredients in this oil include: cupuacu butter, acai oil, and coconut oil. A great alternative to self-tanner, you can’t go wrong with this!
Tarte mineral shadows are boosted with pigments and guarantee long-lasting wear. With 12 shades of brown, this is also the perfect intro to makeup palettes. And while I have welcomed neon eyeshadows with open arms, when I am getting ready for work at the crack of dawn, I instantly gravitate to this palette. It is great for days you want it to look like you tried without putting in hours of effort.
We have had many discussions about the importance of taking care of your gut. And a beauty sale does not mean the conversation stops here. Instead, try it out! This dietary supplement contains eight probiotic strains that promote skin, hair and nail health. Each bottle contains 60 plant-based capsules, and I have noticed a significant difference in my appearance.
