We weeded through Dermstore’s Friends & Family sale (wherein select items are 20 percent off with the code FRIENDS) and picked out the serums, highlighters, and silk pillowcases that either we, our friends at the Cut, or famous people we know with excellent taste stand behind. Below, the discounted goods.
One of Kathleen Hou’s favorite highlighters. She wrote: “RMS Beauty’s cult Living Luminizer (a staple used in the J.Crew catalogue) is subtle, a bit of makeup subterfuge to make your cheekbones look slightly shinier than normal.”
Original price $38
Strategist’s resident curly-haired writer Lauren Schwartzberg would drink this stuff if she could (that’s how much she loves it).
Original price $44
One of actress Shiri Appleby’s favorite things. She told us: “This is a thick mud that makes my skin feel so fresh — the pores really get cleaned out and it leaves my face so hydrated.”
Original price $69
This lotion is one of the four products that the Cut’s Ashley Weatherford uses every morning, and credits it with making her skin look particularly smooth. She writes: “[T]he humectant property of glycolic acid draws in moisture and makes my skin look constantly dewy; my face overall appears impossibly smooth.”
Original price $29
After using this “bio-repair precious cream” for about a month, Cut beauty writer Caitlin Moscatello’s dry and flaky skin was dry and flaky no more. Plus, she wrote, “[M]y face has a noticeable glow to it that it hasn’t had in years.”
Original price $75
A dermatologist-recommended silk pillowcase, which will supposedly create minimal friction against the face and head and is thus said to reduce irritation, wrinkles, and hair frizz.
Original Price: $79
Interior designer Ken Fulk told us that he loves the wide teeth of this Mason Pearson comb because “it’s almost like running your hands through your hair — it’s not overly perfect, but it keeps that just-came-from-the-barber look that I think is classic and timeless, compared to that I-just-rolled-out-of-bed head.”
Original price $35
Cupcakes and Cashmere founder Emily Schuman told us this natural deodorant hasn’t let her down yet.
Original price $21
Actress Judy Greer always packs one of these masks in her carry-on. She told us: “They make me look like I’ve slept for ten hours, even if I took the red eye.”
Original price $60
Another offering from natural beauty line RMS Beauty, which the Cut has championed in the past. Use it as a lip tint or “swipe the formula on your face for a natural flush. It melts into skin and makes it look like you were born wearing blush.”
Original price $36
