Even though we’re regulars at the drugstore, Ulta, Sephora, and other beauty retailers, Dermstore is one of our top skincare shopping destination of choice. Why, you ask? It specializes in skincare products specifically…thus the name Dermstore. That means we can shop hundreds of brands that other retailers simply don’t carry. Like dermatologist-created skincare products and international products. That’s not to say, however, that there aren’t makeup, hair, and body products up for grabs too. There are many, many of those as well.
Since Black Friday is coming up, and Dermstore is having a massive sale, we thought we’d comb through the site to find the 15 products we’re most excited to shop (after all, we firmly believe preparation is the key to a successful shopping expedition). Most everything on the site will be discounted up to 30%, so the savings will be significant. All you have to do is apply the code FRIDAY at checkout. Keep scrolling to see our curated list of the best Dermstore products to purchase on the greatest shopping day of the year, November 23, 2018. We’ve even separated them into 3 distinct categories (skincare, hair, and makeup) for your shopping convenience.
This little dropper bottle contains a skincare formula that’s long been beloved by Byrdie editors. We have a full in-depth review of this serum, but why not share a few highlights from our beauty director, Deven. “The blend of vitamin C, E, and ferulic acid is an anti-aging powerhouse. Alone all three antioxidants are powerful skin-savers, but together, they boost the antioxidant activity of each other. The particular form of vitamin C used in CE Ferulic is the only form that prevents moisture loss in the skin. And it does so while it brightens dark spots and evens texture.”
Since it’s normally over $150 per bottle, there’s no better time than to shop it now.
Dry, chapped, or cracked lips will drink up this rich lip balm. It uses ingredients like essential rose wax and floral oils to treat the delicate skin on the lips, which is why it smells so heavenly. Take it from one reviewer who writes “I really love this lip balm. The scent is amazing! The formula is super easy to apply and glides effortlessly onto my lips. The product feels so luxurious just like any By Terry products. I think the Baume de Rose is their best line and I would highly recommend trying it. I also adore their bame de Rose scrub.”
This is the very cleanser that I use on my skin each night. I can say with utmost certainty that you’ll love its creamy texture and soft, clean scent. As for its cleansing powers, I appreciate that it clears dirt, makeup, and sweat off of my skin without stripping it of all of its moisture. It even has white willow bark to gently exfoliate my skin and keep my pores clear while antioxidants keep free radicals at bay. Yeah, I’m hooked.
Speaking of expensive skincare products that are perfect for purchasing during a Black Friday sale…This Sunday Riley exfoliating treatment uses lactic acid to gently buff away dead skin, while licorice brightens hyperpigmentation and lemongrass boosts radiance. Use it as a daily serum or as needed for a bright and glowy complexion (even in the midst of winter).
Eminence Organics flies far under the radar compared to some of the other big name brands on Dermstore’s website, but that doesn’t reflect poorly on its products (in fact, Duchess Meghan Markle is a famous follower of the brand). We like this face mist because it goes beyond hydration to combat dirt, impurities, and breakouts with salicylic acid.
Jane Iredale’s cream lipstick is a best-seller on Dermstore’s website. That’s probably due to the combination of hydrating oils found inside, which keeps the lips feeling comfortable for hours at a time. This particular shade of ruby red lipstick, which is called Gwen, is perfect for wearing to upcoming holiday parties.
Sea minerals, jojoba oil, olive squalane, and shea butter are behind the glow-inducing and hydrating powers of this Japanese foundation. Even though it effectively covers dark circles, blemishes, and hyperpigmentation, the end result looks like genuine, healthy skin.
I had heard good things about this mascara, but had never used it until a makeup artist applied it to my sparse lashes a couple of months ago. Needless to say, I was wow’ed by the results. My lashes immediately doubled in length and density. Since then, I’ve been a fan.
Although we generally prefer cream highlighters, since they look more natural in daylight, this silky powder is an exception. It works like an Instagram filter IRL, blurring pores and blemishes and providing the prettiest illuminated finish. We’re obsessed.
This palette contains 12 pressed powders that range in color from creamy white to bold red and shimmery green-gold. As such, it’s my new go-to palette. I wear the neutral shades during the day, then layer the darker shades over top for a night out.
Another day, another cult classic beauty product. This time it’s Oribe’s iconic dry texturizing spray. It’s a unique combination of a traditional texture spray and dry shampoo, meaning it provides lift and movement while also disguising oily strands. We have this to thank for some of our best hair days.
If you struggle with product build-up, you’ll love this apple cider vinegar rinse. It’s a clarifying scalp cleanser and conditioner in one. It even works on a dry and itchy scalp, according to Dermstore customers. “I love using this because it’s so great for my hair. The results are amazing! Must try if you want natural ingredients instead of chemical.”
Please bask in the glory that is my favorite flat iron of all time. It straightens my thick hair extensions in five minutes flat, and that’s without burning them to a crisp. Seriously, every single time I use it to style my hair, I get compliments, which means a lot. While Harry Josh products are technically exempt from the sitewide 30% off discount, they will be 25% off as a part of the brand’s own Black Friday promotion.
For dry, heat-ravaged strands, a hydrating hair mask is paramount. This one is deeply reparative thanks to desert date and wheat protein. As one reviewer writes, “My hair was extremely dry and damaged due to years of styling tools and color treatments. I have tried several hair masks but this is one of my favorites. I use this once a week along with the leave in conditioning treatment which I use daily and my hair is now stronger, healthier and even has some shine!”
People with fine hair will love this volumizing shampoo from Rahua, which adds movement and bounce without taking away any moisture. We like the fact that it has powerhouse ingredients like alpha hydroxy acids, green tea, vitamin C, antioxidants, and aloe.
