In case you haven’t heard, Sephora is having a Presidents’ Day sale, offering discounts on hundreds of beauty items, plus free shipping on your order when you use the code FREESHIP at checkout.
You’ll find lipsticks, palettes, beauty tools and more all on offer, but we’ve got our eye on one thing — skincare. Sephora’s sale has currently marked down over 300 skincare products, with many having wonderful anti-aging ingredients like retinol, vitamin C, and chemical exfoliators like AHA and BHA. So which are some of the best in the sale? We’ve rounded up the most popular to add to your cart ASAP.
If a loss of firmness and skin elasticity is something you’d like to correct, look no further than this cream. It’s formulated with a form of niacin alongside StriVectin’s patented Gravitate-CF Lifting Complex to improve skin’s overall elasticity and provide a visible lift to sagging skin. It’s also packed with skin-brightening ingredients to help even out your skin tone overall.
Many Sephora reviewers say they love the results, with one in particular commenting, “I’ve tried a lot of anti-aging creams, but this cream, when used consistently, delivers results…I apply this buttery-rich neck cream in an upwards motion towards my jaw. In six to eight weeks, my lines are diminishing, my skin is tighter, I’m seeing results.”
This triple threat of a cream combines three essential anti-aging powerhouses to deliver noticeable results: Retinol, which helps diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles over time while helping skin become more firm; vitamin C, which works to brighten and even skin tone; and wild gooseberry extract, which can defend skin against free radicals and fight further signs of aging. Moisturizing ingredients within the cream also help to keep skin firm and healthy, as well as restore hydration that can be lost when using retinol.
“It’s quite simply AMAZING,” one reviewer says about this cream. “I can’t believe the difference in my skin. The dark circles and puffiness under my eyes are gone, fine lines are erased and my skin feels tighter, making it look more youthful. I am 50 years old, and this product has made my skin tone even with no more redness.”
Any good skin care routine involves some exfoliation, and this product is a great option for its added anti-aging benefits. Made with intensive AHA and BHA (ie., alpha and beta hydroxy acids) chemical exfoliators, this cleanser helps with skin cell turn over, which promotes more youthful skin. It also includes a physical exfoliator — Jojoba beads — to wash away dead skin cells and revive dull-looking skin.
“Cannot live without this cleanser,” writes one reviewer. “Very exfoliating and brightens my skin. I feel this does help with dullness and dry skin during the winter, as well as reducing any fine lines from the summer sun.”
If you have sensitive skin or have found retinol treatments overall to be too harsh, this is an excellent alternative. The serum uses Babchi extract, which contains bakuchiol, a botanical ingredient that, like retinol, works to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also contains PHA, a gentle chemical exfoliator that can help with resurfacing skin cells, as well as tremella mushroom for added hydration. The formula itself is also jelly-like, which makes it extremely fun to apply.
One happy reviewer comments, “I have found a massive difference between my skin texture before using this and the morning after. It is SO much smoother. I’m particularly concerned about aging skin and dullness, and because I also have sensitive skin that easily burns with retinol, I’ve yet to find a product that has had as good a result as this one.”
For a moisturizer that packs a serious vitamin C punch, this cream by Sunday Riley is it. It features a derivative of vitamin C known as THD ascorbate that is better able to penetrate into the skin to fight signs of aging and restore your skin’s natural radiance. This form of vitamin C is also known to be less irritating, so if your skin is sensitive, this cream is a great option.
This reviewer says they’re very happy with their results. “Love this product! I’ve been using it for about six months now, and I have noticed a visible difference in my skin,” they comment. “It’s brighter, more supple, and the light scent is a plus! Best of all, my hubby has noticed the difference in my skin and he’s starting to use it too.”
