As someone who literally makes a living testing, researching, shopping for, and writing about beauty products, I’d be the last person to say there’s ever an inopportune time to stock up on your must-have beauty staples. However, are there significantly more strategic times to shop for some new discoveries or your ride-or-die standbys? Why yes, yes there are.
Unfortunately, our various collections of bottles and jars don’t always have the courtesy to run out right when an amazing beauty sale hits, but if you’re currently out of or running low on a few fave formulas (or if you’re just in the mood to shop up a storm in preparation for fall—eep!) Dermstore’s Anniversary Event totally has you covered. And, the games have already begun! From August 8 through 17 you can score as much as 25% off on holy-grail formulas which, in fact, just so happens to be the highest discount for any site-wide sale Dermstore offers of the entire year. There are over 200 crème de la crème brands participating—from Sunday Riley to Briogeo to Caudalíe, and all you have to do is enter the code CELEBRATE at checkout to save big. (Keep in mind the percentage off you’ll score—10% to 25%—varies by brand and will be noted as you shop.) Looking for some inspiration?
