There's something about the arrival of spring that makes us want to throw out all our old beauty products and welcome a whole new slew of oils and brightening serums. It's like Dermstore knew we'd be in KonMari mode, because our favorite beauty retailer is having its first major Beauty Refresh Event of the year. Now through March 9, the site is offering up to 20 percent off top brands like Obagi, Revitalash and Dr. Dennis Gross to help replace our dwindling winter stash with shiny new products—just use code REFRESH at checkout for your discount. We know these things can be stressful, so we had one of PureWow's beauty editors break it down below. Here, ten of the best products to shop from Dermstore's Beauty Refresh Event.

1. Revitalash Advanced Eyelash Conditioner
I stopped using lash serum for a month to see if it really did anything, and immediately stocked up again. That experiment taught me that nothing makes my lashes quite as long and fluttery. Oh, and Meghan Markle uses this exact product, so it's also royal-approved.
2. Stila Cosmetics Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner
I've never used another felt-tip eyeliner with such great color payoff. This comes out super inky and it really does “stay all day” (and night, for that matter).
3. Weleda Skin Food Original Ultra-rich Cream
This thick, clean cream is beloved by many celebs (Priyanka and Julia Roberts, to name a few). Some use it for their hands, some for their face; I use it for both, right before bed. I may look like a grease ball when my head hits the pillow, but I wake up with glowy, hydrated skin.
4. Dr. Loretta Urban Antioxidant Sunscreen Spf 40
UVA and UVB protection don't cut it anymore. I need something that can also protect against HEV blue light and free radicals, like pollution. This sunscreen goes on so smoothly and shields my skin from all of the above, while also delivering complexion-perfecting ingredients (hi, marine peptides and coconut oil) and—as if that wasn't enough—it also functions as a makeup primer.
5. Obagi Professional-c Serum 20%
Anything under 20 percent vitamin C won't give me the kind of skin-brightening results I want. So investing in a high concentration is top of my list. This one gets rave reviews and still costs about $60 less than the cult-favorite SkinCeuticals version.
6. Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream
After seeing J.Lo's Superbowl Half-Time Show, I (like millions of others) immediately Googled her skincare routine. She's been using this daytime moisturizer for years, and while I won't exactly be giving up my Friday night martinis for good (J.Lo doesn't drink!!), I can at least moisturize like the queen herself.
7. Slip Silk Scrunchie (3 Piece)
Ever since cutting my hair into a bob, I've been a big fan of the half-pony. But a regular elastic always leaves a horrible dent that doesn't fall until I wash my locks. These silk scrunchies have been a life saver, so I'm stocking up and putting one in every bag. Plus they look way cuter on my wrist than a black hair tie.
8. Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peel (30 Count)
As I age, dullness and wrinkles are my major skin concerns. But these potent peel pads include both glycolic and lactic acids to help slough off dead cells to fade fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. Plus, they're individually wrapped, making it so easy to pop them in my gym bag or weekender.
9. Agent Nateur Holi(oil) Youth Body Serum
I've never been a body lotion person, because I just can't get used to the sticky feeling. A serum, however, I can get down with. It's made with clean ingredients and sinks into skin immediately on application so I don't have to twiddle my thumbs while I wait to get changed post-shower.
10. Fur Fur Oil
Summer is coming, which means razor bumps galore. This product is includes a cocktail of different oils to softens hair and clear pores for fewer ingrowns. It's technically made for pubic hair, but I use it on my underarms and legs, too, which both tend to get red bumps after I shave two days in a row.
