I Own Hundreds of Beauty Products… But These 20 Are on Sale, and I Can't Resist

There are certain "icons" in my beauty regimen that no matter how hard I try (or how long I've used them for) have proven themselves completely irreplaceable. In other words, regardless of how many new launches come along, or how many "dupes" claim to deem them redundant, they just work so perfectly well, that no other product—despite its objective fabulousness—stands a chance.

In very exciting news for anyone who loves to score A+ products for a fraction of their normal price, 20 of my all-time favorite products are currently on sale thanks to Dermstore's super epic Summer Sale, which extends from May 22 to May 31.

Shop the sale and use code SUN at checkout, and you can earn up to 20% off (and/or double points!) on tons of the retailer's most prestigious brands. (Think Augustinus Bader, Supergoop!, Olaplex, and more.) I might already own an unhealthy number of beauty products due to the nature of my always-testing job, but the deals are so great, and the products are so irresistible, that I'm still shopping and stocking up on all of my ride-or-die staples during Dermstore's 2023 Summer Sale. Keep scrolling for my top recommendations.

Beauty Director

Erin has been writing a mix of beauty and wellness content for Who What Wear for over four years. Prior to that, she spent two and half years writing for Byrdie. She now calls Santa Monica home but grew up in Minnetonka, Minnesota, and studied writing, rhetoric, and communication at University of Wisconsin, La Crosse. She studied abroad in Galway, Ireland, and spent a summer in L.A. interning with the Byrdie and Who What Wear family. After graduating from UW, she spent one year in San Francisco, where she worked as a writer for Pottery Barn Kids and PBteen before moving down to L.A. to begin her career as a beauty editor. She considers her day-to-day beauty aesthetic very low-maintenance and relies on staples like clear brow serum (from Kimiko!), Lawless's Lip Plumping Mask in Cherry Vanilla, and an eyelash curler. For special occasions or days when she's taking more meetings or has an event, she'll wear anything and everything from Charlotte Tilbury (the foundations are game-changing), some shimmer on her lids (Stila and Róen do it best), and a few coats of the best mascara-type product on earth, Surratt's Noir Lash Tint.
