Hang on tight because your Monday (and heck, your whole week) is about to get so much better. Beauty lovers, take note. Today is the first day of one of my most anticipated events of the year. It's the kickoff of Dermstore's super-epic Beauty Refresh Event, which runs today, March 2, through March 9. You have eight whole days to stock up on everything you're currently out of—from skincare to makeup—and discover tons of cool new products your beauty aesthetic will crave in tune with the changing seasons.
Dermstore only has a few sitewide events per year, so this is not the time to be passive, folks. (Nor is this event the stuff of flimsy clickbait. This is an AMAZING dollar-saving situation.) In celebration of spring, Dermstore is offering up to 20% off on over 200 of its most sought-after beauty brands. (Just enter code REFRESH when checking out to save.) And even the brands that aren't taking part in discounts (like IS Clinical, Oribe, EltaMD, etc.) are offering double points on purchases for Dermstore's loyalty shoppers. Obviously, I can't share all 200-plus brands with you here (you'll have to head over to Dermstore for that!), but I CAN share a coveted list of some of my favorite participating brands and what I'm planning to purchase from each. Keep scrolling, and get ready to shop till you drop.
Bioderma: 20% Off
The micellar water of all micellar waters: a dew-enhancing makeup-remover beloved by beauty editors, makeup artists, and every celebrity we've ever talked to. I'm currently out, and now is the perfect time to buy about five bottles.
SkinMedica: 10% Off
FYI: Hailey Bieber and I both love this dermatologist-approved brand. I'm addicted to applying this anti-aging eye cream at night and waking up with less darkness and puff and an overall tighter, more lifted look. I just worked through the sample size I received, so full size, here I come.
Slip: 20% Off
Repeat after me: One can never have too many silk pillowcases, but the high-quality ones are expensive, which is why I'm springing for a few new colors now.
Kevyn Aucoin: 20% Off
Ask any beauty expert, and they'll tell you Kevyn Aucoin makes some of the dreamiest makeup products on the market. For the prettiest glassy glow, I love dabbing my Beautyblender into this illuminator and applying it to the high points of my cheekbones and Cupid's bow. I've been using shade Crystal Clear for winter, but it's time to upgrade to Spectrum Bronze in anticipation of spring.
CosMedix: 20% Off
Pumped with hydration, lip-plumping peptides, and liquid crystal technology, this professional-grade gloss does more than just look pretty on top of your vanity.
Koh Gen Do: 20% off
True story: While I wish it had a larger range of shades, this is truly one of the best foundations I've ever tried. (And makeup artists agree with me!) I'm convinced I'll wear it until my dying day. Boosted with Japanese botanicals, it is an investment. The time is now!
R+Co: 20% Off
R+Co makes tons of great hair formulas for a wide variety of hair needs, but this Texas-inspired thickening shampoo and conditioner is the best me and my limp strands have come across.
Goldfaden MD: 20% Off
This facial scrub is decked out with the most amazing ingredients like ruby crystals, jojoba oil (which won't clog your pores), seaweed extract, and hyaluronic acid. If you're after a porcelain-smooth texture, this is the scrub to get! I go through it fast because I'm also obsessed with using it literally everywhere, and I keep my tub in the shower.
Lilah B.: 20% Off
In my opinion, Lilah B. is the crème de la crème within the realm of natural, nontoxic makeup brands. I love a great multitasker, so this sleek little lip-and-cheek number is the next on my must-buy list. (And the colors are so stunning.)
Weleda: 20% Off
Here's a hot secret: This iconic green tube is in practically every makeup artist's kit. An even hotter secret? It's a much cheaper dupe for Augustinus Bader's holy-grail rich formula. Just saying. If you're oil-prone, try the normal formula, instead.
Stila Cosmetics: 15% Off
I've actually been impressed with some other liquid liners recently, but this OG waterproof formula from Stila will always be my number one. I come back to it again and again (and again and again). I usually go with black, but I'm throwing Midnight, Intense Smoky Quartz, and Dark Brown into my cart.
Tarte Cosmetics: 20% Off
Here's a trade secret no one ever talks about. (Or maybe I'm just the only one who's tried enough primers to know.) But Tarte makes the absolute best primers if you're after a smooth, practically pore-less finish. Usually, I go for its hydrating formula, but with warmer temperatures looming, this mattifying pick is the way to go right now.
111Skin: 20% Off
Makeup artists love this skincare brand for pre–red carpet prep, and literally every single product is amazing. That said, the price points aren't for the faint of heart. This month (and because I have a lot of events coming up), I'm treating myself to a pack of the face masks celeb makeup artist Pati Dubroff uses on her A-list clients like Margot Robbie and Priyanka Chopra Jonas.
Skyn Iceland: 20% Off
These days there are lots of eye masks, patches, and gels on the market, but these ones are the only ones I've found to immediately de-puff and de-shadow in record-breaking time. Celeb makeup artists like Kelsey Deenihan (who works with glamorous names like Lucy Hale) swear by their magic as well.
Virtue: 20% Off
I keep this split-end mender from Virtue on my bathroom counter at all times. You can use it on wet or dry hair, and the Olsens' longtime hairstylist Mark Townsend said it to me best: It's literally a haircut in a bottle.
Naturopathica: 20% Off
I've been dying to try this sweet cherry-infused lip scrub and conditioning butter ever since I saw Rosie Huntington-Whiteley gushing about it here.
Smith & Cult: 20% Off
I have champagne taste when it comes to nail polish. Smith & Cult is my ultimate splurge, and at 20% off, I can feel a little less guilty while simultaneously stocking up on my favorite shades. Fact: This shade never fails to earn me at least three compliments a day.
Embryolisse: 20% Off
Celebrity makeup artists have told me their clients never fail to steal this holy-grail French drugstore moisturizer from them post–skin prep.
Caudalie: 20% Off
I make my way through this iconic French mist so fast. It's infused with the loveliest ingredients and is such a great way to prep your skin before makeup, refresh midday, or even fix, blend, and moisturize before a night out. It's no wonder it's the brand's most iconic fixture!
Philip B.: 20% off
This is a miraculous concoction that performs borderline witchcraft on hair. It's a featherlight conditioning mist that's infused with high-end botanicals and helps to rehydrate and re-shine hair that's been through a beat but isn't quite ready for a wash. I just finished my can, so 20% off couldn't be more exciting to me right now.
