We keep saying that beauty products rarely go on sale â€” except for now. After last weekâ€™s very rewarding Nordstrom anniversary sale, this weekâ€™s best beauty sale comes from retailer Dermstore. In honor of their anniversary, a huge selection of brands and products are 25 percent off till August 12. See below for the best things to scoop up now, including a pricey-but-worth-it hairbrush, a coconut-oil highlighter used to get the models glow-y in the J.Crew catalog, and a pricey mud treatment that both rock stars and movie stars love.
Cate Blanchett might be the face of SK-II, but she swears by this exfoliant. It comes in a fluffy powder that you mix with water to create a very, very fine-grained fluid. Use it to slough off dead skin without harming any dolphins or your pores.
Original Price: $55
Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant Sale Price: $42 (25 percent off with code HAPPY18), Dermstore
You know a â€œnaturalâ€ cleansing oil is good when people wake up eager to use it in the morning and go to bed excited to use it at night. It also smells nicely like pineapple.
Original Price: $42
One Love Organics Vitamin B Enzyme Cleansing Oil + Makeup Remover Sale Price: $32 (25 percent off with code HAPPY18), Dermstore
This daytime antioxidant serum is a nice dupe of the more pricey SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic (to which the Dermstore discount code not apply). Unlike CE Ferulic, it doesnâ€™t have the look and smell of a molten copper penny, but itâ€™s full of Vitamin C. True to the brand, which has become one of Sephoraâ€™s best skin-care launches in history, itâ€™s also â€œnatural.â€
Original Price: $80
Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum Sale Price: $64 (25 percent off with code HAPPY18), Dermstore
If youâ€™re not ready to commit to a retinol, this is a nice starter serum. The heavy lactic-acid formula gently exfoliates your skin while youâ€™re sleeping without giving you redness or dry patches, so you wake up with brighter skin. The formula is rather pungent, though, so gird your nose.
Original Price: $158
Sunday Riley Good Genes All-in-One Lactic Acid Treatment Sale Price: $119 (25 percent off with code HAPPY18), Dermstore
Every J.Crew catalog uses RMS highlighter for a gentle, non-shimmery luminosity thatâ€™s not so bright that itâ€™s visible across the subway platform. Itâ€™s also â€œnaturalâ€ and made out of the best quality coconut oil (centrifuge-pressed), as formulated by Gisele Bundchen and Miranda Kerrâ€™s makeup artist, Rose-Marie Swift. The concealer is alsogreat.
Original Price: $38
RMS Beauty Living Luminizer Sale Price: $29 (25 percent off with code HAPPY18), Dermstore
Every time I stop using this exfoliating liquid, I break out. It effectively tackles two of the main causes for zits: It acts as a boon against bacteria and gently dissolves dead skin so you donâ€™t get clogged pores from build-up. Ashley Weatherford, the Cutâ€™s Senior Beauty Editor, first discovered it and raved about it, and now itâ€™s in the beauty routine of over five Cut staffers.

Summer.Fling by Beautyblender Sale Price: $37 (25 percent off with code HAPPY18), Dermstore
â€œItâ€™s worth every penny,â€ hairstylists (like the Sally Hershberger) used to say about the Mason Pearson brush. I got one recently and one day after using it, two of my co-workers asked me what I did to my hair. â€œI brushed it?â€ I replied. These pricey brushes literally never go on sale so now is a good time to try it out.
Original Price: $150

Your butt probably doesnâ€™t need more moisture, but surely it can benefit from what the Internet only semi-hyperbolically calls the â€œbest-smelling lotion in the world.â€ Pop star Shawn Mendes even sneakily based his first fragrance on this after tweeting that he was â€œin loveâ€ with the scent.
Original Price: $45
