Our picks for skin-care
Dr. Loretta Intense Replenishing Serum — $60.00
Originally $70, now $60
I rarely fangirl over skin products, but this hydrating serum has done my weary summer skin wonders the past few weeks. It’s viscous—much thicker than other serums I’ve tried—making its moisture levels actually last throughout the day. It’s also loaded with antioxidants like lipochroman and vitamin E that protect the skin from further damage from UV and pollutants. 11/10 would recommend.
Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Extra Strength Daily Peel Packettes (30 Count) — $71.00
Originally $88, now $71
Dr. Dennis Gross skin care products are all 20 percent off during the sale. Our recs? Try one the brand’s peels to slough away dead skin and improve texture and appearance.
“Dr. Dennis Gross’s peels are a great daily resurfacing and exfoliating treatment that really works for me,” says Gina Vaynshteyn, commerce editor at Well+Good. “I’ve been using them for years. They leave my skin brighter, smoother, and softer in the morning, and it’s nice not having to apply a mask—who has time?”
Lumière Firm Riche Illuminating Tightening Eye Cream — $89.00
Originally $118, now $89
This eye cream is so good that Deirdre Hooper, MD, a 47-year-old board-certified dermatologist in Louisiana, has been using it every day for 15 years. “I’ve tried every eye cream I think that might exist over the years and I’ve never applied one and thought it felt better than Lumière,” says Dr. Hooper. “I just find that eyelid skin is such a trouble zone and it ages almost faster in so many of my patients than anything else. And I would say the proof is in the pudding. I’ve been using it for 15 years and I really think my eyelids have aged well.”
Our picks for hair care
R+Co Rockaway Salt Spray — $21.00
Originally $28, now $21
Summer isn’t over quite yet. If you want to rock the effortless, just-stepped-off-the-beach look, get your hands on R+Co’s salt spray. While other salt sprays can leave you sticky and crunchy, this mist adds the perfect amount of lightweight texture. It’s my go-to for executing the Blue Crush look, and I promise it won’t disappoint.
Oribe Dry Texture Spray — $40.00
Originally $49, now $40
Dubbed “the easiest styler and hair perfume that you’ve ever met,” by Ali Finney, Well+Good’s former deputy editor of brand initiatives, Oribe’s volumizing spray doubles as a dry shampoo for fresh hair in a flash. It’s formulated to absorb oil at the root, so you can skip the wash on even your greasiest days.
Briogeo Curl Charisma Hydrating Defining Hair Mask for Curly Hair — $100.00
Originally $124, now $100
Are your curls absolutely parched and begging to be quenched? Check out Briogeo’s ultra-moisturizing mask that’s fortified with rice aminio acids and avocado to leave your locks smooth and silky. “This is a great hair mask for anyone with curly hair who needs some extra hydration year-round,” says Pridgett. Like the name suggests, it’s sure to give your curls some charisma. Stock up and get this masive tub.
Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt — $40.00
Originally $53, now $40
Nothing washes my hair like this salty scrubbing shampoo by Christophe Robin. It’s so foamy, but never drying or damaging since the almond oil and linseed extracts in the formula boost hydration. And the salt crystals? They’re perfect for scrubbing away build-up and gunk that’s left on the scalp.
Our picks for cosmetics
Smith & Cult Nail Polish — $14.00
Originally $18, now $14
Enjoy 20 percent off some colorful new nail polishes. “Smith & Cult is about as long-lasting as a nail polish can get for not being gel, and I can never stop myself from buying several colors, because they’ve got the best selection,” says Vaynshteyn. “As someone who paints her nails on a regular basis, I look for cruelty and 8-free formulas, which Smith & Cult provides.”
Coola’s Organic SPF 30 Makeup Setting Sunscreen Spray — $29.00
Originally $36, now $29
Coola’s airy mist has become my go-to setting spray. While some setting sprays leave you feeling sticky, Coola’s feels like nothing is there. It’s infused with aloe and cucumber extracts, so it never dries me out, plus it doubles as UV protection with SPF 30.
Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow — $18.00
Originally $24, now $18
As Saanya Ali, Well+Good’s former editorial project associate, put it in 2020, “Glitter is the mood booster we all need right now.” Stila’s shimmery liquid eye shadows elevate any makeup look with just the right amount of shine. It’s not flaky or patchy like other liquid eyeshadows can be, and it’s super long-lasting, adding the perfect touch of sparkle to any look.
