Plan on embracing the newest Cloud Skin makeup trend this summer? Same. In that case, we're gonna need a matte foundation, hydrating serums, moisturizers and a primer. It could get expensive—quick. Thankfully, we can snag up to 20 percent off all the products we need (and even some that we don't) during the Dermstore Summer Sale. Yes, at last, it is here, and from now through May 31, you can use coupon code SUN to save on a boatload of your favorite brands (or those you've been dying to try), from Sunday Riley to Tarte and NuFace.

Before you rush off to Dermstore, you should know that Dame, Dr Dennis Gross, Peter Thomas Roth, Ilia and Kate Somerville are some of the biggest steals during this sale. So, word to the wise: Don't waste any time before stocking up on the Alpha Beta Universal Daily peels that made a PureWow editor's skin feel as smooth as a baby's bum (no lie, you can read the full review) or the Instant Firmx eye cream that went viral on TikTok, because they're definitely going to go fast.

No need to stress, though. To give you a head start on your shopping, we rounded up 21 products worth every penny, according to the buyers who buy them repeatedly.

We say it all the time, but it's true—nothing compares to this Meghan Markle-loved eyelash serum. It has transformed hundreds of buyers' lashes from short and stubby to long and falsie-looking in just a couple of weeks. The BioPeptin Complex, peptides and botanical ingredients are to thank, as they work together to condition and protect lashes from brittleness and breakage while also helping to improve flexibility. And apparently, all it takes is a swipe on your lash line before bed before you start to see a difference.

A PureWow editor credits this serum for transforming her skin in two months. We're not kidding, just read the full review. But basically, it brightened her skin and minimized her dark spots courtesy of a high dose of vitamin C (15 percent, to be exact), golden turmeric and cranberry seed oil. Not to mention, she says, when you use this product in the morning, it leaves you with a glowing base to start your makeup. "You can also use this at night as well as before you head to bed," she adds. "If you prefer to apply it twice a day."

The fact that PureWow's Beauty Director, Jenny Jin, says she would buy these even if they didn't work is reason enough to add them to cart. "They’re just that fun to wear," she raves. They're infused with aloe leaf, calendula, amino acids and peptides, which do a fine job of softening and relaxing your undereye area, according to frequent users. And you only need to leave them on for ten to 15 minutes for them to work their magic, which we can't help but love.

Three sprays of this cult-fave, and the product promises to deliver a calming effect. "This works," one buyer shares. "[It offers] instant relief from muscle aches and pains. I frequently have neck and back pain. I have tried so many products and some work, but this one works every time." Wondering how this is even possible? It’s all thanks to magnesium and lavender oil, ingredients with proven benefits of reducing anxiety and improving sleep.

Minimizing fine lines and dark circles is genuinely a task. Well, unless you have this eye cream, that is. With a hydrating combination of hyaluronic acid and caffeine ingredients, it should help to brighten and combat puffiness at once, which is music to our ears. Don't believe it? Just hear this happy buyer out: "[It has] helped reduce my eye wrinkles significantly. [It's] the one product that doesn't leave my rotation."

Ever since we tested out the larger NuFace Trinity device and hydrating aqua gel, which delivered an instant facelift—we're talking lifted brows, sculpted cheekbones and diminished forehead wrinkles—we've been waiting for our perfect chance to grab the mini version. It uses the same microcurrent technology that gives similar face-contouring results, except it's conveniently compact for travel.

If you have yet to see the TikTok about this stuff that went viral for its visible results in under three minutes, you will want to watch it now. You'll see for yourself, but when this vitamin C and E formula is swiped under the eyes, it can help to reduce crow's feet, fine lines and wrinkles in record time. One buyer explains, "You can feel your skin tightening within seconds, and the effect lasts all day." Say no more.

We wouldn't be us if we didn't include our oldie but goodie favorite, the Sunday Riley Good Genes lactic acid treatment. Ever since it came into our lives, we've had better skin days, thanks to its genius formula featuring five percent lactic acid, licorice, lemongrass and aloe. They all work overtime to slough off dead skin cells, clear our complexion and boost collagen production. So if there's any product you *100 percent* want to buy during this sale, it's this guy right here.

Are you a stats kinda person? Get ready to be impressed by this lightweight, buildable, non-flakey and smudge-free mascara. Not only did 98 percent of testers in the brand's consumer study say that it instantly coated each of their lashes from root to tip, but 98 percent of them also said that it's long-lasting. (It should stay on and poppin' for up to 12 hours at a time, guys!) Guess you'll just have to see for yourself.

This is by far one of the most popular sunscreens on the market. The reason: Besides having a pretty high SPF of 46 (!), which makes it foolproof as far as protecting you against harmful sun rays, it also has a smooth formula that blends seamlessly into all skin tones according to more than 4,000 happy reviews. And since it's packed with sodium hyaluronate and lactic acid, it should also moisturize the skin and help clear pores all at the same time.

Multi-use products can be a hit or miss, but this best-seller is a HIT. At first use, it impresses with its creamy smooth organic sunflower seed oil and organic shea butter formula that reportedly melts into the skin, per reviewers. Then it delivers a soft pinch of color perfect for both cheeks and lips. "I love the light fragrance of this product," one buyer adds. "It works so well as a lipstick, blush or eyeshadow! I’m a new mom, and this product has been amazing for an under-five-minute makeup routine."

Effective skincare on-the-go is made easy when you have these two-step packets on hand. When used daily, they're supposed to rejuvenate skin—evening out your complexion and delivering a glow that you can see from across the room—all by way of glycolic and lactic acids, vitamins A, C and E and green tea extract. The brand says you can also expect instant and long-term anti-aging benefits as an added bonus of an already pretty great product.

At the last Dermstore sale, PureWow readers wasted no time stocking up on this serum packed with a boatload of vitamin C (specifically, L-ascorbic acid). When it penetrates the skin, buyers swear it brightens, minimizes dark spots and fine lines and improves complexion overall. One buyer shares, "This is my ride-or-die vitamin C. I have used it for more than ten years... [It] helps to keep my skin glowing and hydrated. This is a must-buy!"

Need a hair dryer for your next trip? Or is your current everyday dryer just too heavy? Say no more. This compact and lightweight T3 has your name all over it. And don't assume that just because it's traveled-sized, it's not as mighty as a full-sized dryer. This baby has superior drying power and advanced airflow technology that gets the job done quickly and seamlessly with three heat settings and two speeds. It also has an ion generator and a lock-in cool shot button that can help reduce static frizz to give you smoother results. Oh, and did we mention that it comes with a cutesy travel pouch for easy storage?

Among the overwhelming options of viral blushes out there, this best-seller from Tarte is one to take note of. With ingredients from Amazonian clay to Vitamin E, it stays on the skin for a loooong time (up to 12 hours, that is). Interestingly, it's also supposed to adapt to your skin type, providing hydration, reducing redness and evening texture. But here's why one buyer is a fan: "I love all my Tarte blushes. I find that they really do last all day. I don't have oily skin, but some blush formulas do fade on me. The Tarte ones don't. I even have one that is about five years old, and there is no noticeable difference in the performance of the formula."

Whether you've had the pleasure of experiencing Paula's Choice skin-improving benefits first-hand or not, you'll be won over by this serum (which is actually one of the brand's top sellers). On top of its rockstar formula featuring 15 percent of pure vitamin C, as well as vitamin E and ferulic acid to make skin radiant from the inside out, reviewers have mentioned that it helped brighten their complexion and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, which is all we needed to hear.

Indeed we're stocking up on this PureWow favorite, but why should you? For one, it made our lashes look longer and thicker in just weeks with its blend of vitamins, peptides and amino acids. Also, one tube should last you up to three months, depending on how much you use it, although you should start noticing results within four weeks. But don't just take our word for it. One reviewer raves, "This thing has worked wonders for me in the three months I have used it *consistently*...It works and does not irritate my eyes AT ALL. So impressed with this."

Clogged skin holding you down? These exfoliating facial pads may just be the solution. "I started using the pads for clogged pores around the nose and chin and believe it's made a huge difference with two times per day usage after cleansing and coupled with micro-needling at home," one reviewer admits. "My teen has also used them to battle chin acne, and it's been a game changer for him." So we'll just shout out the product’s patented Tri-Enzyme technology (with papain, protease and subtilisin), lactic acid and probiotic formula because we have a feeling these will be a game-changer for you.

Ingrown hairs in the bikini area aren't fun any time of year, but they're especially annoying in the summer when all you want to do is wear cute high-cut swimsuits. Luckily, this all-natural oil (packed with coconut oil, tea tree oil and chamomile extract) will come to your rescue. Paired with an exfoliating mitt, it helps soothe irritation and nix ingrowns before they appear. One reviewer is obsessed: "This is the jam, and you need it in your life. [There's] nothing else like it to keep ingrown hairs and razor burn at bay. So thankful this exists! [It's a] small bottle, but you don't have to saturate yourself in it."

Oribe is one of those *really* fancy hair care brands that sells $50 shampoos and conditioners, which makes stocking up an expensive habit. So if you're an avid user or in the market for hair products that get the job done, look no further than this classic bundle featuring two of the brand's top sellers. Featuring a blend of oils and extracts as well as the brand's bio-restorative complex, it should breathe life into dull strands and help undo hair damage over time. Yup, it's that good.

We all wish we could be lying beachside with a frozen Bob Marley in hand in Montego Bay, but since that requires planning and loads of moolah, this soy candle is the next best thing. With notes of coconut, citrus and vanilla, it will transport you across the country at lightning speed. Oh, and of course, it will make your place smell a-m-a-z-i-n-g. Seriously, we tested one of the brand's candles, and it filled our entire apartment with an undeniably luxurious scent. We imagine this guy will be no exception, and it should burn for up to 80 hours.
