Hello there 🙂
Dermstores Beauty Refresh Event is here.
Hold on a minute because your Monday (and hell the whole week) will soon be so much better. Beauty lovers take note – today the first day is one of my most anticipated days of the year. It is the prelude to Dermstore's super-epic Beauty Refresh Event, which takes place today from March 2nd to 9th. You have eight days to stock up on everything you no longer have – from skin care to make-up – and discover tons of cool new products that your aesthetic beauty yearns for as the seasons change becomes. Dermstore has few sitewide events per year, so this is not the time to be passive. (This event isn't a flimsy clickbait either – this is an AMAZING situation in which dollars are saved.) To celebrate spring, Dermstore offers up to 20% off over 200 of its most sought-after beauty brands. (Just enter the code REFRESH when checking out to save.) And even brands that don't take part in discounts (such as iS Clinical, Oribe, EltaMD, etc.) offer Dermstore customers double points when shopping. Of course, I can't share all over 200 brands with you here (you'll need to go to the Dermstore!), But I CAN share a coveted list of some of my favorite participating brands and plans to purchase from everyone. Keep scrolling and get ready to shop till you drop. The micellar water of all micellar waters: a dew-enhancing make-up remover that is loved by beauty editors, makeup artists and all the celebrities we have ever spoken to. I'm on my way now and now is the perfect time to buy about five bottles. For your information: Hailey Bieber and I love this brand recognized by dermatologists. I'm addicted to applying this anti-aging eye cream at night and waking up with less darkness, pouf, and an overall firmer, firmer look. I just worked through the sample size I received, so full size, here I come. Repeat after me: you can never have too many silk pillowcases, but the high quality ones are expensive. (That's why I'm jumping for some new colors now!) Ask a beauty expert and he'll tell you that Kevyn Aucoin makes some of the most dreamy makeup products on the market. For the most beautiful glass-lit glow, I love dabbing my beauty blender into this illuminator and applying it to the highlights of my cheekbones and Cupid's bow. I've used Crystal Clear for winter, but it's time to upgrade to Spectrum Bronze in anticipation of spring. Pumped with moisture, lip-filling peptides and liquid crystal technology, this professional sheen doesn't just look pretty on your vanity. True story: I wish they had a wider range of colors, but this is really one of the best basics I've ever tried. (And makeup artists agree!) I am convinced that I will wear it until my death. Reinforced with Japanese plant substances, it is an investment. The time is now! R + Co makes countless great hair formulas for a variety of hair needs, but this Texas-inspired thickening shampoo and conditioner is the best thing I have come across on my limp strands. This facial peeling contains the most amazing ingredients such as ruby crystals, jojoba oil (which does not clog the pores!), Algae extract and hyaluronic acid. If you are looking for a smooth porcelain structure, this is the scrub you should get! I go through it quickly because I'm obsessed with literally using it everywhere, and I keep my tub in the shower. In my opinion, Lilah B. is the crème de la crème in the field of natural, non-toxic makeup brands. I love a great multitasker, so this slim little lip and cheek number is the next on my must-buy list. (And the colors are so stunning.) Here's a hot secret: This iconic green tube is included in virtually every makeup artist kit. An even hotter secret? It is a much cheaper scam for Augustine Bader's Holy Grail-rich formula. Just saying. If you tend to oil, try the normal formula instead. I've actually been impressed by some other liquid liners lately, but this O.G. Stila's waterproof formula will always be my number one. I keep coming back to it. (And again and again.) I usually go with black, but I throw midnight, intense smoky quartz and dark brown in my car. Here's a business secret nobody's talking about. (Or maybe I'm just the only one who has tried enough primers to know.) But Tarte makes the absolute best primers if you're looking for a smooth, practically non-porous finish. I usually go for their moisturizing formula, but in warmer temperatures, this mattifying choice is the way to go. Makeup artists love this skin care brand for preparation in front of the red carpet, and literally every single product is AMAZING. That means the price points are not for the faint of heart. This month (and because I have a lot of events ahead of me) I treat myself to a pack of face masks that celebrity makeup artist Pati Dubroff uses on her A-List customers like Margot and Priyanka. There are many eye masks, plasters and gels on the market these days, but these are the only ones I've found to puff and shade in record time. Celebrity makeup artists like Kelsey Deenihan (who works with glamorous names like Lucy Hale) also swear by their magic. I always keep this Virtue split-end mender on my bathroom counter. You can apply it on wet or dry hair, and The Olsen's longtime hairdresser, Mark Townsend, said it best to me – it's literally a haircut in a bottle. I've been wanting to try this sweet cherry cherry lip scrub and conditioning butter since I saw Rosie Huntington-Whiteley rave about it here. I have a champagne taste when it comes to nail polish. Smith & Cult is my ultimate luxury, and with a 20% discount, I can feel a little less guilty while stocking up on my favorite colors. The fact is: this shade always earns me at least three compliments a day. Prominent makeup artists have told me that their prominent customers keep stealing this moisturizer from the French drugstore after skin preparation. I make my way through this iconic French fog so quickly. It is enriched with the most beautiful ingredients and is ideal for preparing your skin before applying makeup, refreshing lunch or even fixing, mixing and moisturizing before going out. No wonder it's the brand's most iconic device! This is a miraculous invention that Borderline witchcraft does on hair – it's a feather-light conditioning mist spiked with high quality botanicals that helps hydrate and shine hair that has been through a blow, but not quite ready for a wash. I just finished my can, so 20% off couldn't be more exciting for me right now. Next up is First Looks Friday: the most exciting beauty products coming to our desk this week
