Any beauty lover knows that a well-organized skincare arsenal suited to your skin type is essential. Where some might generally need anti-aging products, others might be specifically in the market for a hyaluronic acid cream (hint: this one by Beautystat is legitimate). Either way, it takes time to find your perfect product line. That being said, the reduction process can be tedious and expensive.
And, as you well know, this is just one aspect of your overall routine. You still have hair care and makeup products to add to the mix. That’s why when an epic beauty sale rolls around, it’s no small feat, especially when it’s a sale at a major beauty retailer like Dermstore. Dermstore’s Beauty Refresh event, which runs until Thursday, March 10, allows beauty lovers to shop a selection of skin, hair and makeup products for up to 20% off.
Confidence: this event is good. The list of brands includes high-end favorites like Skinmedica, Dr. Dennis Gross and Kate Somerville. It also includes budget brands like Paula’s Choice. If you’ve been looking at pricey devices like the Nuface, now’s your chance, and in the hair department, take your pick from Briogeo and Unite. As for makeup: Ilia, Beautyblender and Bare Minerals are among the many brands to choose from.
Below, to help you get started, the TZR beauty team shares their top picks from the sale. Just use the code “REFRESH” at checkout. And as a reminder, you have until next Thursday to secure the bag.
We only include products that have been independently selected by TZR’s editorial team. However, we may receive a portion of sales if you purchase a product through a link in this article.
“It’s my go-to skin tone, so I’d definitely stock up on a sale. It gives my skin a dewy glow, while providing surprisingly generous coverage. The best part? It’s made of zinc, which can soothe rashes, and has an SPF of 40.” — Faith Xue, Executive Beauty Director, Lifestyle
“If I have to shell out the money for a topical skincare treatment, I want a product that has clinical results to back up the claims. SkinMedica’s cult TNS Serum will work on those signs of premature aging, helping to lift, smooth fine lines, and even out skin texture and tone.I’ve gone through at least three bottles and it’s worth every penny in my beauty editor review, so snagging it during a sale is a no-brainer. — Hannah Baxter, Associate Beauty Editor
“I just discovered this moisturizer from black-owned skincare brand Beautystat and I’m obsessed. I’m not usually a big fan of moisturizers; due to my oily skin, I usually just layer on moisturizing serums, but this cream has the perfect texture – not too light, but it also has a kind of balm to it and it leaves my skin so smooth and soft Not to mention it’s oil free which is a huge win for my pores prone to clogging. I will definitely stock up. — Annie Blay, Beauty News Assistant Editor
“I love this creamy and gentle cleanser. It removes all my makeup without stripping my skin and has a great soothing scent that makes me look forward to using it every day and night. It’s a must have!” — Faith Xue
“Even though I’ve been on accutane for a year, I still have hormonal acne breakouts along my jawline. This retexturizing serum helps keep my blackheads at bay, especially during this time of the month. It’s made with retinol to help smooth out the texture, but also contains ferulic acid to help counter the irritation caused by retinol (so I can use it daily if I need to). — Taylor Jean Stephan, Beauty Editor
“I’m really big on sunscreen. I don’t usually wear a lot of makeup, so I like to protect myself by applying sunscreen throughout the day. Since I’m not used to having a ton on my face, it was imperative to find a lightweight formula that didn’t feel too heavy on the skin. Unseen SPF 40 is by far my favorite sunscreen on the market. It is light and oil-free, leaving my skin slightly glowing and protected. The red algae helps protect against blue light damage from smartphones, tablets and computers – which I use more and more when working from home. Not to mention, it’s pocket-sized and can be thrown in a purse or carry-on anytime. Natasha Marsh — Beauty Editor
