If your medicine cabinet needs a refresh, here's some good news: One of our go-to skincare brands, SkinCeuticals, is having a major sale right now.
Time and time again, dermatologists have recommended SkinCeuticals products to us as the best of the best for brightening skin, fighting signs of aging, and keeping your complexion hydrated and plump. Must-haves from the brand have popped up in our lists of the best vitamin C serums, the best hyaluronic acid serums, the best serums for erasing acne scars, and even the best anti-aging products of all time.
The only drawback? While worth every penny, this line is definitely not cheap. So you can imagine our excitement when we spotted an email in our inboxes this morning from Dermstore announcing a rare 20% off sale on all SkinCeutical products, a discount that's pretty much unheard of. The sale lasts through May 19 with the code "SKINC20" at checkout. Here, four derm-approved products from the brand we're adding to our carts ASAP.
SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic (normally $166, $133 with code; dermstore.com)
If you're going to splurge on just one SkinCeuticals product, this is it. The brand's cult-favorite vitamin C serum has racked up nearly 800 five-star reviews on Dermstore from customers who rave about the way it transformed their skin. You can thank a potent mix of ascorbic acid and vitamin E with ferulic acid, powerful ingredients that work to dramatically brighten skin, fade old acne spots, and reduce signs of aging.
SkinCeuticals Advanced Pigment Corrector (normally $92, $74 with code; dermstore.com)
Acne scars have met their match. According to William Kwan, MD, an ethnic skin expert and dermatologist based in San Francisco, the formula "contains salicylic acid, which is helpful in treating acne and gently exfoliating, and a proprietary lightening agent to even discoloration."
SkinCeuticals Hyaluronic Acid Intensifier (normally $98, $79 with code; dermstore.com)
This isn't your average hyaluronic acid serum: In addition to delivering a hit of moisture and helping boost skin's elasticity, 2% licorice extract brightens and works to fade discoloration.
SkinCeuticals Resveratrol B E (normally $153, $123 with code; dermstore.com)
In a previous interview, Kavita Mariwalla, MD, a dermatologist based in West Islip, New York told us she uses this formula at night to improve skin pigmentation and also recommends it for patients with acne. "Red wine is the natural source for resveratrol, as it is rich in grape skin and seeds," she explained. "It works beautifully as a nighttime antioxidant to improve skin." Resveratrol also tends to be gentler than some other anti-aging ingredients, making it a good choice for those with sensitive skin.
