Our picks for skin-care
Dr. Loretta Intense Replenishing Serum — $59.00
I rarely fangirl over skin products, but this hydrating serum has done my weary summer skin wonders the past few weeks. It’s viscous, way thicker than other serums I’ve tried, making its moisture levels actually last throughout the day. It’s also loaded with antioxidants like lipochroman and vitamin E that protect the skin from further damage from UV and pollutants. 11/10 would recommend.
Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Extra Strength Daily Peel Packettes (30 Count) — $71.00
Dr. Dennis Gross skin care products are all 20 percent off during the sale. Our recs? Try one the brand’s peels to slough away dead skin and improve texture and appearance.
“Dr. Dennis Gross’s peels are a great daily resurfacing and exfoliating treatment that really works for me,” says Gina Vaynshteyn, commerce editor at Well+Good. “I’ve been using them for years. They leave my skin brighter, smoother, and softer in the morning, and it’s nice not having to apply a mask—who has time?”
EltaMD UV Clear Broad Spectrum SPF 46 — $37.00
It’s never too late to buy some sunscreen. EltaMD’s SPF 46 is a great option that’s formulated with gentle yet powerful ingredients that protect skin from both UVA and UVB rays.”It’s one of the only sunscreens that doesn’t feel oily, leave a white cast or smell,” says Tamara Pridgett, beauty and fitness editor at Well+Good. “I can rest-assured my skin will be protected whenever I have it on.”
SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic — $166.00
There’s a reason Skinceutical C E Ferulic is a cult-favorite—it’s really that good. “This vitamin C serum is the best that money can buy, period,” says Zoe Weiner, beauty and fitness editor at Well+Good. Made with 15 percent vitamin C, vitamin E, and ferulic acid (a plant-based antioxidant) this serum will leave your skin looking brand new.
Just note, it does have an, uh, earthy smell. “It’s so good at brightening skin that I don’t even mind that it smells a little bit like hotdog water,” says Weiner.
Our picks for hair care
R+Co Rockaway Salt Spray — $20.00
Summer isn’t over quite yet. If you want to rock the effortless, just-stepped-off-the-beach look, get your hands on R+Co’s salt spray. While other salt sprays can leave you sticky and crunchy, this mist adds the perfect amount of lightweight texture. It’s my go-to for the executing the Blue Crush look, and I promise it won’t disappoint.
Oribe Dry Texture Spray — $36.00
Dubbed “the easiest styler and hair perfume that you’ve ever met,” by Ali Finney, Well+Good’s deputy editor of brand initiatives, Oribe’s volumizing spray doubles as a dry shampoo for fresh hair in a flash. It’s formulated to absorb oil at the root, so you can skip the wash on even your greasiest days.
Briogeo Curl Charisma Hydrating Defining Hair Mask for Curly Hair — $24.00
Are your curls absolutely parched and begging to be quenched? Check out Briogeo’s ultra-moisturizing mask that’s fortified with rice aminio acids and avocado to leave your locks smooth and silky. “This is a great hair mask for anyone with curly hair who needs some extra hydration year-round,” says Pridgett. Like the name suggests, it’s sure to give your curls some charisma.
Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt — $40.00
Nothing washes my hair like this this salty scrubbing shampoo by Christophe Robin. It’s so foamy, but never drying or damaging since the almond oil and linseed extracts in the formula boost hydration. And the salt crystals? They’re perfect for scrubbing away build-up and gunk that’s left on the scalp.
Our picks for cosmetics
ILIA Fullest Volumizing Mascara — $28.00
Pridgett fell in love with Ilia’s brand new mascara for giving her dreamy lashes. “This mascara still provides a ‘natural look,’ but if you’re a fan of length and volume and aren’t quite ready to invest in something more permanent like lash extensions, this is definitely a great alternative,” she wrote in a recent review.
While not on sale, you can score triple Dermstore Rewards points for purchasing. Toss it into your cart for lashes that give a little bit more drama to your everyday look.
Smith & Cult Nail Polish — $16.00
Enjoy 20 percent off some colorful new nail polishes. “Smith & Cult is about as long-lasting as a nail polish can get for not being gel, and I can never stop myself from buying several colors, because they’ve got the best selection,” says Vaynshteyn. “As someone who paints her nails on a regular basis, I look for cruelty and 8-free formulas, which Smith & Cult provides.”
Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow — $21.00
As Saanya Ali, Well+Good’s editorial project associate, put it last November, “Glitter is the mood booster we all need right now.” Stila’s shimmery liquid eye shadows elevate any makeup look with just the right amount of shine. It’s not flaky or patchy like other liquid eyeshadows can be, and it’s super long-lasting, adding the perfect touch of sparkle to any look.
