We are slowly (but surely) inching our way to spring—which also means its time to give my makeup, skincare, and hair products a major refresh. Not only do I need some spring shades to throw in my cosmetics bags, but I need to do a major overhaul on my dry skin and hair courtesy of the winter weather. Thankfully, Dermstore is running a major sale on all these products and more that is definitely worth scooping out.
Right now, you can get 20% off high-end beauty brands like Harry Josh, Bioderma, Slip, and more at Dermstore’s Beauty Refresh Event, if you use the code REFRESH at checkout. While the sale is limited to certain brands, you can still get a discount on cult-favorite sunscreen, hair dryers, and mascara that you’ll want for this upcoming spring and it only goes until Monday, March 9—so you better hurry.
With the help of our resident beauty expert, Jessica Kasparian, we sifted through the best of the best included in the sale, so you know exactly what’s worth buying. Here are our 15 top picks to shop right now.
1. A deep conditioner to repair dry, winter hair
The winter weather can do some serious damage on your hair (mine is currently a dry, itchy mess), which is why you’re going to want to rehydrate dry strands ASAP. The Don’t Despair! Repair Deep Conditioning Mask from Briogeo will definitely do the trick and is a little over $7 off with the code. The key is to soak it in for five to 10 minutes after shampooing the hair, then rinse, and use it at a minimum of once every two weeks or up to twice a week for very dry locks for softer hair all spring long.
2. One of the best hair dryers we’ve ever tested
The Harry Josh Pro Dryer 2000 was once our favorite hair dryer, but was recently dethroned by the Bio Ionic GrapheneMX. However, we still consider the Harry Josh a fan favorite (not to mention its countless celebrity endorsements) and loved its light weight and quick drying time. You can scoop it up for almost $50 off, thanks to this sale.
3. A micellar water that cleanses and removes makeup
Micellar waters gently pull makeup, dirt, and debris without using any added oils—which is great for those of us with oily skin. This one from Bioderma is quite popular because it’s fast-acting, removes makeup with ease, and doesn’t irritate your eyes. If you’re looking for a change from traditional makeup wipes, this could be it.
4. Finishing powder with built-in SPF
You should never leave the house without a layer of SPF to protect your skin from damaging UV rays—and this finishing powder from Colorscience is the perfect way to assure you always have it on. It has SPF 50 built-right into it and reviewers love how even the coverage is. This sale is a great time to scoop it up before you start spending more time in the sun.
5. A silk pillowcase to take care of your locks
If you ever wake up with frizzy hair or wrinkles in your skin from your pillowcase, there’s an easy fix. The Slip Silk Pillowcase has earned a cult following and is made of mulberry silk (which is hypoallergenic and odorless) that will keep your hair and skin feeling silky smooth. It’s typically super pricey at $85, but you can nab it for just $68 right now.
6. An exfoliating powder you can use every day
The Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant has a near perfect 5-star rating among nearly 500 reviewers at Dermstore and reviewers are thoroughly impressed and find that it evens their skin tone. This powered exfoliant immediately activates upon contact with water, and will leave your skin feeling smoother and brighter almost instantly. It could be exactly what you need after a long winter.
7. Fast-acting pimple patches
Looking for a way to reduce one of those pesky pimples that always seem to appear on the day of a major event? These pimple patches from Cosrx come highly-rated within the beauty community and are crafted to reduce redness and inflammation, which will lessen the appearance of your acne fast. Pick up a pack for the time you have an unexpected visitor greets your face.
8. This popular body oil for all sorts of hair
Shaving your body hair often comes with the dreaded consequence of ingrown hair. But this public hair oil—made popular by Emma Watson—claims to soften hair and clear pores to prevent just that. We’re currently testing this magic hair oil, and while our tester hasn’t noticed fewer ingrowns, she’s definitely noticed softer, more groomed hairs down there after using it for 30 days.
9. This popular dry shampoo for in between washes
Fully washing your hair is a time-consuming process (plus, you need to wait for it to dry)—and some days you just don’t have time to do it. That’s where dry shampoo comes in and reviewers love this one from Living Proof. It absorbs oil, will revive your hair, and is small enough to toss into a gym bag.
10. One of our facial cleansing brushes
For a small facial cleansing brush that will get deep into your pores, look no further than the Foreo Luna mini 2. While it’s not our favorite facial cleansing brush, we still found that it was decent at cleaning. It’s also super portable and doesn’t require you to buy any cleansing pads—making it a one time purchase.
11. A charcoal mask with a cult following
This peel-off charcoal mask from Boscia has become a household name amongst beauty vloggers. It claims to tighten your pores and provides a clearer complexion—and it actually works. When we tested it, we found that it removed dead skin and blackheads immediately upon pulling off the mask as well as sopping up any excess oil.
12. A bath scrub that smells incredible
Body polish is one of those things you never knew you needed. The Herbivore Coco Rose Body Polish has ingredients like coconut oil, Moroccan rose, and pink clay. It’s the perfect balance of exfoliating and moisturizing (i.e. it leaves your skin super smooth) and smells incredible.
13. A face roller to enhance your skin
If you’ve heard of jade rollers, you know that they supposedly boast many skin benefits, including smoothing wrinkles, tightening pores, and boosting collagen to improve the skin’s elasticity. This popular roller from Nurse Jamie makes similar claims, but uses a hexagon shape and 24 “massaging stones” to create a “unique rhythmic rolling action.” It’s a favorite of celebrities, like Khloe Kardashian (naturally), and it may be your new must-have skincare tool, too.
14. A moisturizer that treats dry patches
Your dry, rough skin could use some major rejuvenation with a squeeze of the Weleda Skin Food. The rich cream moisturizes and reduces itching using lipids and calms the skin with extracts of pansy, rosemary, and chamomile in a sunflower and sweet almond oil base. It’s at a nice discount right now, so stock up while you can.
15. This cream for voluminous curls
Curly girls, listen up. This coconut curl cream from DevaCurl is life-changing and is the only product out there that has really defined my curls without leaving the crunchy feeling that most gels do. Seriously, I cannot recommend it enough, so try it out for yourself while its on sale. I know I’ll be stocking up. It also smells exactly like coconuts, which is a major plus.
