Those who know damn good skin care, know that the best creams and masks will cost you a couple Benjamins. Now, we’re not saying you should spend the entirety of your fall shopping budget on a single Sunday Riley serum — because we also love white leather cowboy boots and cozy turtleneck sweaters — but you should at least poke around the huge DermStore sale going on right now, because it will save you a couple $20 bills.
Starting October 4 and running through October 12, you can score 20% off on products from the best upscale skin-care brands (like Sunday Riley, Dr. Dennis Gross, and Elemis) when you shop DermStore’s Friends & Family Sale.
Click to the site, browse through the sale section (make sure to note the brands that are excluded), then use the code “FRIEND” at checkout to watch the savings fall off your final receipt. Or, you can grab the best of the best — the top-rated serums, collagen-boosting creams, purifying masks, and face rollers — ahead.

Sunday Riley Good Genes All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment (1.7 oz.), $126, available at DermStore
“Skin perfecting” is a vague claim, but this liquid exfoliant lives up to the hype. Inside the plain white tube lives a serum infused with 2% salicylic acid, which clears and tightens pores. A few swipes will leave you with firm and radiant skin that is pretty close to “perfect.”
Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2%; BHA Liquid Exfoliant (4 fl oz.), $23.2, available at DermStore
This gel cream feels hydrating as soon as you rub it into your face, but the real magic is noticeable after a few weeks. You’ll see a huge improvement in the texture of your skin after using it for a few weeks.
Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream (1.7 fl oz.), $102.4, available at DermStore
Dermalogica’s no-fuss cleanser is for those who want a face wash that cleans every trace of dirt and oil off the skin, without any weird smells or stinging detergents.
Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel (16.9 oz.), $47.2, available at DermStore
This time of year, you’re probably feeling a little stressed out — due to a mix of Q4 demands at work, holiday plans with family, and a shortage of rosé — and your skin might be showing it. A little R&R and a purifying face mask is just what the doctor (and derm) ordered.
Eve Lom Rescue Mask (3.3 fl oz.), $68, available at DermStore
