In defiance of any New Year’s resolutions you may have made to be frugal, Dermstore is having a massive sale spanning makeup, skin care, and hair categories (and even the odd water bottle) that includes products from many rarely-on-sale brands like Herbivore Botanicals, Smith & Cult, Caudalie, and Grown Alchemist. The savings have already started, but you can use the code SILVER at checkout to take up to 20 percent off select brands, through January 7.
Another French beauty serum, this one from Caudalie: it’s rich in resveratrol and French beauty bloggers love it for brightening and evening out skin tone.
Now’s a good time to top off on this ceramide-rich lotion that dermatologists unanimously singled out as the best for hydrating dry and eczema-prone skin.
One of the all-star skin care essentials on Rio’s original Google Doc — it’s a hydrating snail mucin essence that’s a little thicker and goopier for winter skin. If your skin tends to skew on the oily side, you could also load up on Cosrx’s pimple patches (our best seller of 2018).
One of Rio’s favorite facial oils for acne-prone skin: it’s calming and antibacterial.
The precision eye definer from Kevyn Aucoin (not a black kohl pen, but a subtler brown hue) that made our beauty writer Rio a believer in eyeliners.
One of the best “natural” hair care products out there, according to the Cut’s Kathleen Hou. “Unlike some ‘natural’ shampoos that don’t really foam, this one nicely suds and leaves your hair feeling shiny, glossy, and bouncy.”
This color-changing “Frog Prince” lipstick is a staple for beauty fanatics: it adjusts to your pH balance, so it will never appear the same on any two pairs of lips.
One of our most stood-behind beauty items at the Strategist, a wrinkle-reducing silk pillow case.
A quenching but non-greasy probiotic and retinol moisturizer that Rio likes to use in winter.
Stephanie Danler’s miracle, do-it-all moisturizer — “I’ve used it to heal scrapes and burns while camping; to calm frizzy hair; and to spot-treat cuticles, elbows, and heels” — is frequently spotted in makeup artists’ kits.
