Take a scroll through the archives of the Skincare Addiction subreddit (or really, any Top Shelfie) and you may spy a familiar name: a certain culty vial of serum from Sunday Riley. It has a little kick thanks to the lactic acid in it — a potent alpha hydroxy acid — and it’s prized for its ability to exfoliate, smooth, and brighten your skin tone. Apparently, Helen Mirren’s a fan, and you can count the Cut’s Ashley Weatherford as a devotee, too: Her daily skin-care routine includes marinating her skin in the stuff after cleansing her face. The only caveat is that it’s not cheap — so now may be a good time to top up on it since it’s 20 percent off at Dermstore. To save, just use the code FRIEND at checkout until February 21.
And if you want to make it a bundle of Sunday Riley goodies, it can’t hurt to look into their U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil or Juno Hydroactive Cellular Face Oil, especially if you’re hunting for anti-aging or acne treatments.
