There are few things more exciting to us than a good beauty sale, especially when it's at one of the biggest beauty retailers, Dermstore. And have we got great news for you: Starting August 8 through August 17, the retailer is celebrating its 22nd birthday with a blowout Anniversary Event, which means beauty devotees (aka, you) can score discounts of up to 30 percent off top-selling products.

On top of that, you also get 5 percent back on every purchase. Dermstore is really going all out with this event and even releasing special, limited-edition sets — so don't let all of the rewards slip by.
As exciting as a sale announcement can be, we understand that it can be equally as overwhelming to sort through every single deal — so we rounded up some of our favorite, can't-miss picks in the hopes that it helps you find the best of the best deals that Dermstore has to offer right now.
If you can't tell by the abundance of choices below, this sale's strongest suit is skin-care products. Whether you're looking to stock up on sunscreen or smartly save on luxury brands, now's your chance to shop beloved skin-care products at a sliver of their normal prices. Cheers to healthy skin.
Sunday Riley Light Hearted Sunscreen SPF 30
Caudalie Make-Up Removing Cleansing Oil
RevitaLash Advanced Eyelash Conditioner
Sunday Riley Light Hearted Sunscreen SPF 30 uses the best of both sunscreen worlds — aka, a blend of mineral (zinc oxide) and chemical (octisalate and oxycrylene) UV filters — to shield skin from sun-induced harm, leaving behind a slightly glowy sheen that boosts your natural radiance. Plus, it contains turmeric to calm skin and reduce redness, while xanthophyll (a pigment found in plants) is said to protect skin from blue light.
It's no secret that we rely on cleansing oils to melt and break down our most stubborn waterproof formulas. Caudalie's Make-Up Removing Cleansing Oil stays true to its name and employs nourishing almond oil, peptides, and brightening viniferine (grapevine sap extract) to cleanse and moisturize skin — all without leaving a trace of greasy or oily residue.
Thanks to a certain royal named Meghan Markle, RevitaLash Advanced Eyelash Conditioner has made headlines in the past. "I [use] Revitalash on my eyelashes, and I swear they are as long as they could ever be," Markle previously told Allure in 2017. It's a great non-prescription option that features a complex containing biotin, green tea extract, antioxidants, and peptides to promote stronger lashes.
Tula Skincare Get Toned Pro-Glycolic 10% Resurfacing Toner
Dermalogica Precleanse Balm
SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum
If you're on a mission to achieve smoother, brighter skin, Tula Skincare's Get Toned Pro-Glycolic 10% Resurfacing Toner dramatically speeds up your skin's cellular turnover rate. Key ingredients include lactobacillus probiotic extracts and glycolic acid, which clear skin of dead cells and reveal a more radiant complexion in the short and long term. Mushroom, beet extract, and hyaluronic acid play important supporting roles in terms of plumping and hydrating skin.
The easiest way to upgrade your cleansing routine is to incorporate a handy tool and massage product into your skin. Dermalogica Precleanse Balm is chock-full of apricot kernel oil to melt away excess sebum, dirt, and makeup and works well with just your hands, but the double-sided cleansing mitt ensures deeper penetration of the formula for refreshed, smooth-as-hell skin.
The secret sauce in SkinMedica's TNS Essential Serum is none other than human growth factors packed with proteins, amino acids, peptides, and antioxidants to seriously reduce inflammation, lift skin, and slow down signs of aging. The upgraded version, TNS Advanced+ Serum, won a Best of Beauty Award in 2020 for its line-smoothing and elastin-boosting abilities.
Don't neglect your skin below the neck. Whether you're experiencing an uptick in body acne or just dry, flaky skin overall, all areas of your body deserve careful attention and care. That includes SPF protection, too. Luckily, tons of brands like Glytone and Dr. Dennis Gross have effective options to treat just about every condition you can come across.
PCA Skin Active Sunscreen SPF 45
Glytone Exfoliating Body Lotion
Baby Foot Original Exfoliant Foot Peel
Beach and pool days are all fun and games until you get burned — literally. Stay protected with PCA Skin's Active Sunscreen SPF 45 which offers water resistance for up to 80 minutes and a combination of lightweight, cast-free mineral (zinc oxide) and chemical UV filters (octinoxate and octisalate) to prevent sun damage from forming.
Uneven skin texture is no match for Glytone's Exfoliating Body Lotion, which is formulated with 17.5 percent glycolic acid to remove dead skin cells and reveal more radiant skin hiding underneath. Vitamin E swoops in to deeply condition and protect skin against environmental aggressors.
The peeling process that accompanies the acid-laced plastic booties best known as Baby Foot might be the stuff of nightmares, but the baby-soft results are hard to argue with. Pop them on for an hour and then patiently wait for a few days for the peeling madness to begin. Our feet take on a lot of wear and tear and have thicker skin than basically any other area of your body, so get ready to shed and welcome your smooth, newborn-like stompers.
Whether you're still not super comfortable spending hours at a salon or have mastered your at-home hair-care routine over the past year, Dermstore has just about every hair product and tool you can imagine. Between all of the deep treatments, dry shampoos, and curl gels, it's worth taking your time to sift through deals from stylist-approved brands such as Living Proof, Briogeo, and Harry Josh Pro Tools to find the right fit for your texture and styling needs.
Harry Josh Pro Tools Ultra Light Pro Dryer
Briogeo Dermstore Exclusive Scalp Revival Soothe Detoxify Duo
Harry Josh Pro Tools Ceramic Flat Styling Iron
If you've gone all this time without trying the iconic, stylist-beloved blow-dryer, the best time to is right now because the entire Harry Josh Pro Tools line is 30 percent off for the Anniversary Sale. The Ultra Light Pro Dryer weighs less than one pound — a feature your arm muscles will surely appreciate — and is designed with 12 heat, speed, and ion settings, as well as two types of nozzle attachments, for ultimate versatility.
The key to healthy hair starts with the scalp. Briogeo and Dermstore teamed up to produce an exclusive, limited-edition Scalp Revival Soothe Detoxify Duo to soothe itchy, irritated scalps and sweep away follicle-clogging debris. Start with the Charcoal + Coconut Oil Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo and follow up with the Charcoal + Tea Tree Cooling Hydration Scalp Mask to seal the scalp-caring deal.
For less than $100, you can snag the Gisele Bündchen-approved Harry Josh Pro Tools Ceramic Flat Styling Iron to create sleek hair for days. Because the plates are larger than most irons, measuring in at one-and-a-quarter inches, you can use fewer passes and save precious time while styling. And because Harry Josh has thought of everything, it has rounded edges that prevent snagging or pulling, as well as an automatic, one-hour shut-off time.
Living Proof No Frizz Instant De-Frizzer
R+Co Sail Soft Wave Spray
Virtue Scalp Treatment Kit
Give dry hair a hearty spritz of Living Proof No Frizz Instant De-Frizzer to tame stubborn, stray hairs that can't seem to cooperate and stay down. You'll experience smoother, shinier hair without the unnecessary buildup from heavier products.
For an effortless, tousled look that doesn't require a hot tool, R+Co's Sail Soft Wave Spray is infused with vitamin-rich sea kelp to amplify shine, volume, and overall softness. Your hair will smell ridiculously fresh and invigorating, too — thanks to a blend of juniper, blood orange, violet, and more.
Virtue's Scalp Treatment Kit includes everything you need to kick-start a deep cleanse and blast away all of the gunk and buildup hiding in your roots. Use the Scalp Massage Tool to stimulate circulation and very satisfyingly work the Exfoliating Scalp Treatment into your scalp while you're in the shower. To nourish and hydrate a dry scalp, apply a few drops of the serum-like Topical Scalp Supplement before hopping into bed.
While you should still keep up your masking habits for the near future (and get vaccinated if you haven't already), we're experiencing a tad more freedom in terms of showing off full faces of makeup — only if that's your jam, of course. Next time you have a safe, intimate gathering with friends, pull out all of the stops and reacquaint yourself with the joy of getting ready, putting on blush and lipstick, and whatever makes your makeup-loving heart flutter.
