I'm Done With Beauty Products That Don't Do Much—These 23 Never Disappoint

Confession: My beauty stash has grown to a monstrous size. One of the many perks of my job is that I have access to countless products and get to test out the very best lotions and potions endorsed by celebrities and skin experts, but as I've transitioned to working from home over the last few months, keeping my collection organized has gotten rather complicated. This conundrum has also challenged me to get brutally honest about the products that simply don't do much. I just don't have space in my life for so-so products, so effective immediately, I'm done with the stuff that doesn't deliver results. 

I've actually never been a fan of those whatever products that kinda do something. That's why whenever I'm scrolling my favorite e-retailers, especially during their epic sales, I keep my eyes trained on the serums, creams, oils, and the like with a proven track record. And one such retailer that carries tons of products that do more than just look pretty on your vanity is my go-to, Dermstore. Starting today, October 13, you can save up to 20% sitewide on some of the most trusted formulas in the game across haircare, makeup, skincare, and bodycare during its annual Dermstore Deal Day event. Just use code "OHJOY" at checkout to snag the savings.

And lucky for you, I already shopped the sale and located 23 products that actually lift, tighten, soften, tone, and brighten from head to toe. Check out my trusted picks ahead. And hurry—the sale ends on October 14.
