I'm always in the mood for a good beauty deal. As such, I look forward to Dermstore's anniversary sale every year—when skincare, makeup, haircare, and tools are a whopping 25 percent off. You can stock up on your tried-and-true favorites (like Bioderma Sensibio H20 or Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream, to name a few), or splurge on a beauty investment you've been eyeing (like Harry Josh's Pro Tools Pro Dryer 2000). It's a particularly wise time to bite the bullet on brands like Elta MD Skincare, Oribe, and Foreo because Dermstore members earn double the points (if you're not one yet, signing up is easy). It's also the perfect opportunity to give new products you've been curious about a spin. Here's a roundup of Dermstore's new beauty releases we're absolutely buying during the sale (it runs through August 25!).
I first became acquainted with this Scandi brand when I came across its Lip Treat (a beauty bag must-have). The natural line ( handmade in Copenhagen, no less) recently released a new batch of skincare staples. One of the new products is this a spray-on toner, essence, and mist that features organic aloe vera and natural hyaluronic acid to seal skin after cleansing or to refresh throughout the day.
The brand that's become synonymous with achieving a head-to-toe moisturized and nourished glow released a sunscreen stick to protect skin. Just like the brand's existing products, this is formulated with yummy ingredients like cupuaçu butter, açai oil, coconut oil and has the addictive scent of doce de leite (the Brazilian take on dulce de leche). Summer may be winding down, but this travel-friendly stick is perfect to pack on any vacation. Designed for both body and face, the formula boasts SPF 50 and is water-resistant for 80 minutes.
We all know the pain of opening up our beauty bag at our travel destination, only to find that our liquid or oil cleanser has bit the dust, spilling over everything else in sight. I've recently taken up using solid cleansers for travel (a true gamechanger—I highly recommend it). One Love Organics recently released its multitasking version that works as a makeup remover and cleanser in one (even better for packing light). It features a rich blend of sunflower, pumpkin, and papaya oils to cleanse skin dirt, oil, and pollution, while papain gently and naturally exfoliates.
Earlier this year, Boscia released its BB Cream that not only is broad-spectrum SPF 30 to protect against UVA and UVB exposure but also defends skin against blue light damage. The formula is made of hardworking ingredients you can feel good about—turmeric oil, quinoa oil, and blue light active rice blend. While fighting against environmental aggressors, the cream offers buildable coverage for a natural beauty look.
Lovers of beauty brand RMS were quick to scoop up the brand's latest release, a palette of pressed powders designed to complement all skin tones and undertones on the cheeks and face. Featuring two luminizing powders and a blush, the trio offers the same natural glow and less-is-more approach to beauty as the brand's other cult products.
The brand that became famous for its rose gold lip products has since expanded in a big way. One of its latest offerings is this moisture-rich everyday balm that delivers a subtle wash of color. Available in six natural-hued shades, the balm is infused with nourishing jojoba and antioxidant-rich vitamin E to soothe and smooth lips and reduce the appearance of fine lines.
Charcoal masks aren't going anywhere and this latest iteration from Glo Skin Beauty delivers two-in-one benefits. A blend of charcoal powder and kaolin and bentonite clays draws out impurities and cleanses pores while environmentally-friendly jojoba beads naturally exfoliate for a clear and softened complexion.
As someone who still has some visible scarring from teenage acne (and used Murad even back then to help with it), I can't wait to try this leave-on cream from the brand. While also keeping present-day breakouts at bay, the treatment tackles uneven pigmentation and reduces the appearance of acne scar size, depth, texture, and discoloration.
R+Co is always coming out with covetable new releases (and eye-catching packaging that will make you want to hit "add to cart" without even reading the description). One of the brands newest products is this dry volume spray, basically a godsend for anyone with hair that needs a little help sometimes. Designed to work with any hair type, the overachieving spray adds gives strands the perfect pick-me-up, adding texture, volume, and shine without weighing strands down.
