Cyber Monday is my favorite time of year to stock up on my go-to beauty items (both for the women in my life and myself!). This year I thought I’d share with you my favorite sale items so you can get in on the goods too.
One small note: I’ve been on a mission this year to conquer both problem pimples and wrinkles. I took a DEEP dive into korean beauty and learned a ton. I’ll have a complete post on my full regimen to come, but anything on sale will be mentioned below.
The best part? It’s all really affordable!
$26.00, Now only $14.99
This is my favorite cleanser because it’s gentle yet effective. I really enjoy the flecks of green tea in it but, by far, my favorite part is that it’s a stick!
The non-liquid format makes it ideal for traveling. It’s also perfect for anyone who hates washing their face (me!) because it’s super quick. Just swipe on your face and rinse.
$22.58, Now only $17.01
Ugh, is there anything more frustrating than having to deal with wrinkles AND adult acne?! I’ve been dealing with it for years now and I’ve finally turned the corner the last few months due to the daily use of a BHA.
(Quick primer: you want BHAs for acne and AHAs for anti-aging…we’ll get to the that second part in a second.)
It’s a little confusing that this one is called “blackhead” liquid but just trust me and roll with it. This power liquid will do a great job on all acne.
$15.00, Now only $12.75
If you’re over the age of 25, I HIGHLY recommend adding a daily AHA acid to your routine. It’s so easy, just dab on a cotton pad, swipe, and you’re done.
The Pixi Glow Tonic is a cult favorite and it’s easy to see why. It’s extremely gentle but still very effective and it’s readily available at Target.
Today’s the day to get everything you need at Target, too, because everything is 15% off sitewide!
$24.99, Now only $17.00
The cliff notes on skincare and anti-aging are that basically the only three things scientifically proven to get results are:
3) Retin-A, Retinol or Retinoid
And when it comes to vitamin C, results are significantly better when it’s combined with vitamin E and Ferulic Acid. The other important things are that the percentage is high (this one’s 20%!) and the Ph level, and that the vitamin C is in a stabilized form that won’t oxidize super quickly.
This timeless version meets all the criteria and is a total steal any time when compared to the extremely similar Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum, but it’s over 30% off today!
$17.99, Now only $8.75
Never heard of Hada Lobo, I hadn’t either until I did my deep dive into skin care. But once I discovered this skincare brand that’s #1 in Japan, I was hooked.
What I love most is the uniquely light texture of this “hydrator”. It literally plumps up your skin instead of weighing it down.
It’s the perfect thing to layer under your morning sunscreen and night-time moisturizer.
Psst – Make sure you click on the “additional 30% off coupon”
The ordinary is my all time FAVORITE brand. So much so that I had to give it a category all it’s own.
From the creators of legendary skincare giants DECIEM, The Ordinary specialize in using clinical technology to create functional beauty products that produce real results. Furthermore, by stripping down on their packaging, they pride themselves on high quality skin products at SUPER affordable prices.
Today, I’d recommend shopping The Skin Store for this line because they’re offering a free gift of a Beauty Bag worth $120 when you spend $150 plus 25% off site-wide. Plus you get free shipping if you spend $50 or more.
Here’s where I’d start…
This is my most recent find from The Ordinary and I love it so, so much! A peel that you put on your skin for 10 minutes and then wash off, it’s a powerful resurfacing treatment that acts as an exfoliating facial to revitalize and tone.
Keep in mind, they do caution that the formula contains a very high concentration of free acids. They recommend using only if you are an experienced user of acid exfoliation and your skin is not sensitive.
If you’re wondering, my experience when I use it can best be described as a deep itch (instead of a tingling or burning) that was mild to moderate and only lasted a few minutes.
The best part, of course, is when it’s all over your skin is crazy smooth!
As I said above, Retin-A/Retinol/Retinoids are a MUST in your 30’s, and beyond, because they’re one of the only things scientifically proven to combat wrinkles and signs of aging.
I’ve tried prescription Retin-A in the past, but unfortunately, it made me break out.
The Ordinary’s Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion is a whole new kind of product; a solution that combines two forms of next-generation Retinoid to help improve the appearance of ageing and acne-prone skin.
I’ve been using for a little over 2 months now and I can seriously see the difference in my forehead wrinkles! Plus, it’s super gentle so it doesn’t irritate my skin at all.
Finally today, if you want to take advantage of that free gift from The Skin Store, you aren’t gonna spend enough with products from The Ordinary because they’re so cheap!
Why not take all those savings and invest in the beauty tool I’ve been coveting for months now…
$199, Now $159.20
A petite yet powerful device that boasts the same benefits as the standard microcurrent treatment but is ideal for on-the-go.
FDA-cleared and clinically tested, the portable device is designed to deliver similar results to a face lift in the form of a painless and non-invasive at-home treatment.
The innovative device visibly tones the facial muscles, evens skin tone and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
That’s it! I hope you find something to truly pamper yourself.
P.S. Two more great Cyber Monday deals to make your life easier:
