Guys, this week I’m partnering with Dermstore to bring you all the beauty deals you need to know now. Dermstore is celebrating their 20th anniversary and lots of amazing name brands are joining forces to give you a sweet discount on products that NEVER go on sale!
I’ve replenished some of my must-haves but also decided to give some new goodies a try since the sale is so good! Here’s the breakdown for you.
One product I never get tired to talk about is my Elta MD sunscreen. I love the tinted one with Hyaluronic Acid, which adds an extra layer of moisture. Mineral sunscreens act as sunblock which is super important for folks who struggle with sunspots, melasma or any kind of hyperpigmentation. It protects skin from damaging UVA and UVB rays. Antioxidant protection prevents premature aging. This product is not on sale but on double points!
If you’ve seen my very first video on “How I Got Rid of Melasma”, you’ll remember the Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum. An anti-dark spot serum that boosts radiance and evens skin tone. I learned about Caudalie power of grapes many years ago when I first started working in the beauty industry and loved their story (husband and wife own and overlook their vineyard in France, everything is made in house!). The key ingredient is Viniferine: “a natural compound found in vine sap that is known to brighten, lighten and even skin appearance, was patented by Caudalie in 2004; enhances skin’s radiance” – Dermstore. 20% Off with code CELEBRATE.
StriVectin SD Advanced Plus is the well known iconic intensive moisturizer concentrate newest formula. StriVectin was the very first anti-aging moisturizer I’ve ever purchased and used for years until I started working in the beauty industry and needed to try other brands and formulas. It wasn’t until recently that I picked up again and am OBSESSED! This in combination with the Foreo Luna 2 cleansing device is giving my face LIFE!!!! 25% Off with code CELEBRATE.
NEW GADGETS I’M LOVING
I can barely keep my excitement to myself! If you follow me on insta you’ve been seen me loving on this new device. The Foreo Luna 2 for normal skin is a facial cleaning and toning device that eliminates impurities and reduces fine lines. My face is GLOWING. It looks like I just had a mild chemical peel and my skin is soft and smooth to the touch. I had girls reach out to me saying they’re now convinced after one use. Here is some key info on this girl (get double points right now!)
- 8,000 T-Sonic pulsations per minute gently slough away dead skin cells, unclog pores and remove up to 99.5% of dirt and oil
- 12 intensities allow you to customize your clean
- A reverse, anti-aging side uses lower-frequency pulsations to firm, tone and visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Improves the absorption of your favorite skincare products
- Nonporous silicone resists bacteria buildup making it 35 times more hygienic than standard cleansing brushes
- One full charge provides 450 uses, meaning you only need to charge it once every 7 months
One tool I’ve been wanting to try for a long time and saw an opportunity to do so is a microneedle derma roller. The ORA Bronze Deluxe Microneedle Derma Roller System comes in a few sizes, I decided to try the smallest needles they come in. The 0.25 is safe to use at home and I definitely see and feel it working. See Video tutorial HERE. Microneedling is an inexpensive treatment when done it at home (please follow directions of use to the teeth!) and provides amazing results on acne scars, fine lines, loss of elasticity, uneven skin tone and texture, melasma and hyperpigmentation. The sensation is like sunburn and you can apply sunscreen and makeup just a few hours after treating your skin, with almost zero downtime! 25% off
Nurse Jaime Beauty Bear Age-Delay Pillow is the cutest and easiest anti-aging ritual you can incorporate into your routine. This little pillow comes in memory foam and regular fill (I got the memory foam but heard the normal one is actually pretty amazing) I watched videos and read reviews on this pillow and that’s why I wanted to try. We like it so much (Hunny buns and I) I’m tempted to get one in the regular fill so Brian and I can share. The U shape is designed to contour our face offering lumbar support as well as our face and neck. The results? I wake up without pillow marks, feeling refreshed and well-rested! Would you girls like a full review video on them both??
You guys know how much I try to support brands that are clean, cruelty-free and safe to use. That’s why I selected a few goodies from Tarte since I’ve been a long time fan of the brand. Tarte is 25% Off with code CELEBRATE!
Another product that has been on my radar was the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation with SPF 15. BLOWN AWAY. That’s all! Ok just kidding, I usually stay away fro full coverage products because of their usual weight and heavy look. This foundation seriously blew me away in the best possible way. Long-wear, perfect coverage and super lightweight. It has a whipped consistency and you need just a tad for a beautiful complexion! It’s my latest go-to.
Fake Awake Eye Highlight. I love a good nude pencil. It’s not as harsh as white and I have been doubling up as an eyebrow highlighter as well. This one is a long-wear gel formula that stays put all day long! Stay tuned for video demo!!
Tarteist Double Take Eyeliner. This one came as a recommendation from many of you. The waterproof liquid eyeliner and gel pencil formula gives 12-hour wear, no smudges and allows for a variety of uses (cat eye, inner lash line, lower lash smokey eye). It’s a great 2 in 1 pencil!
Tarte Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush, I have this guy for many many years and decided to include in the post so you can take advantage of the sale. I love the airbrush look that I can accomplish with this brush, it’s in my shortlist of favorites!
I’ve been a fan of Oribe for a long time. I especially love their hair sprays and styling creams. They’re included on double points! If you’re familiar with the brand you know they’re known for their heavenly smell! I carry the superfine spray in my car and I have one in my vanity. I also love the heat protectant blow out cream, my hair feels soft and smells incredible with this duo!
A friend of mine recommended the R+Co Badlands dry shampoo paste months ago (if not years) and I always keep on waiting for my aerosols to be over but there’s always one hanging around the house. So this time I made myself order it and WOW!!!! If you have fine and volumeless hair you’ll love this paste. It built massive volume on my 6th-day hair, but you MUST follow directions and warm the product on your hands before applying it. So so good!!! Included in the sale – 25% off!
One last tool is my beloved Hot Tools 24 Karat Gold-plated barrel. It’s also years old and I own one in each width that it comes in because I love it that much. By years I mean over 7 years friends and it’s still amazing, even heat and holds the curl extra-long and leaves my hair super shiny!
I hope this post was helpful in breaking down my beauty must-haves and why I love them all so much!
