Presidents’ Day may not be the most glamorous of holidays but, for many, it means a three-day weekend and finding some sweet deals. Tons of brands and multi-retailer stores like Nordstrom, Ulta Beauty, and Sephora are offering slews of discounts throughout the entire weekend leading up to Monday, February 20.
Looking for a discount on luxury skin care you wouldn’t dare buy at full price? (Because we get it.) Check out Bluemercury because, as long as you’re a member of its free loyalty program, you can easily score 20 percent off on Augustinus Bader’s The Rich Cream. Or need to replenish your stock of acne patches? Peace Out is going all-out with a 30 percent sitewide discount, so grab a pack of Acne Dots or Microneeding Dark Spots Dots, asap.
To help you nab the best skin-care deals to navigate your winter skin-care woes, we’ve rounded up the best and brightest that you (and your wallet) simply can’t miss out on. Make sure to bookmark this page to stay up-to-date on all the amazing beauty and lifestyle deals we find as they come in.
February 17 to 20 (early online access starts at 9 p.m. ET on Feb 16): If you’re a BlueRewards member (PSA: it’s free to sign up!) and your shopping cart adds up to $200 or more, you can snag 20 percent off your purchase with promo code TWENTYOFF. This event features coveted, rarely-discounted brands like Augustinus Bader, Olaplex, and SkinCeuticals (though shoppers are limited to three for the latter). The only exclusions are spa services, gift cards, Dyson products, and Bluemercury exclusive sets.
February 17 to 26: Soko Glam, our favorite K-beauty curator, is kicking off a slew of special sales (keep an eye out!) with 23 percent off the entire Neogen Dermalogy collection — which is pretty unheard of. Whether this is your first time hearing about this buzzy brand, or you’ve been a devoted customer for years, there’s truly something for everyone to check out. Our top recs include the Real Ferment Micro Essence which plumps up the skin immediately and in the long term. For sun protection, you seriously can’t go wrong with the Day-Light Protection Airy Sunscreen. Commerce editor Sarah Han is a big fan of this luxuriously lightweight, no-pilling formula.
February 16 to 20: There’s no time like the present to stock up on winter skin-care necessities, especially when brands like True Botanicals are offering 20 percent sitewide for President’s Day with code PRESDAY2023. We recommend replenishing your extra-dry skin with glow-inducing treatments like the Renew Pure Radiance Oil or Chebula Extreme Cream.
February 14 to 27: SkinStore rarely disappoints with its sales, and its Anniversary Sale is truly the cherry on top. For two weeks, beauty devotees can save up to 30 percent off premium brands like StriVectin, First Aid Beauty, NuFace, and more with the code CELEBRATE at checkout. It’s almost too easy.
February 17 to 21: Breakouts got you down? Peace Out’s Presidents’ Day Sale is here to remedy that. Take 30 percent off sitewide (with the only exception being the brand-new Acne Day Dots) so you’re stocked up on everything you need to treat dark spots left over from blemishes, like the Microneedling Dark Spot Brightening Dots. For a targeted undereye treatment, try the Retinol Eye Stick to soften the appearance of fine lines and crow’s feet over time.
February 15 to 21: Everything goes for The Inkey List’s 15 percent off sitewide sale, including Best of Beauty winners like the Hyaluronic Acid Serum and Retinol Serum. However, we’re eyeing some of the curated sets for an even steeper deal. Our top picks? The Tired Eyes Duo pairs together the Caffeine and Retinol Eye Creams to target puffiness, dark circles, and fine lines day and night. The Anti-Acne Routine comes stocked with four full-size products: Salicylic Acid Cleanser, Hyaluronic Acid Serum, Succinic Acid Acne Treatment, and Omega Water Cream to ensure breakouts are kept at bay while skin stays hydrated and bright.
February 16 to 21: Treat your skin to some new goodies via Glytone’s Winter Sale. Why? Because you can score 20 percent off on select products like the Mild Gel Cleanser, which gently resurfaces skin with glycolic acid and strengthens your moisture barrier with glycerin. For an all-over treatment that’ll smooth out dry, uneven skin, try the Exfoliating Body Wash. To cash in on your savings, simply input promo code SAVE20 and you’ll be golden.
February 18 to 20: Get glowing with Tula thanks to the brand’s short-but-sweet 30 percent off sale, which includes tons of skin-care products that put in the work to get your complexion looking brighter, smoother, and soothed. Besides the skin-refining magic that is the Secret Solution Pro-Glycolic 10% Resurfacing Treatment Toner, plenty of other products are on sale. We have our eyes on the Protect + Plump Firming & Hydrating Face Moisturizer and Mineral Magic Mineral Sunscreen Fluid SPF 30 to round out our morning routine.
Now onwards: Whether you’re looking to splurge on an editor-beloved Allies of Skin serum or stock up on your double-cleansing staples via Dermalogica, Dermstore’s got you covered. Take your time browsing the sale section because you won’t want to miss out on all of the plentiful savings.
February 12 at 12 a.m. PT to February 20 at 11:59 p.m. PT: In honor of the brand’s Self Love & Self Care Event, shoppers don’t even need a promo code to get their favorite skin-care treatments at a discount. Save 15 percent off one item or save 20 percent on two or more items throughout the holiday weekend.
Now onwards: Sephora’s sale section is akin to a treasure trove of products that seem too good to be labeled with hefty discounts — but since they are, you’re essentially obligated to stock up on some goodies. Our top pick is Ole Henriksen‘s Jumbo Glow2OH Dark Spot Toner, which holds a whopping 10 ounces of AHA-infused liquid that will seriously boost the radiance of your skin.
February 16 to 20: During Medik8‘s Friends & Family Sale, practically everything is 25 percent off with code FF25. That includes one of the brand’s top-sellers, the Crystal Retinal Serum, which is available in a whopping range of five concentrations — starting at 1 for very sensitive skin. Retinal 6 is in the middle and is ideal for people experienced with using retinol. Follow that up with the ceramide-rich Signature Night Cream to firm and brighten the look of skin while you snooze away, knowing what a good deal you scored.
February 16 to 20: Turn up your glow with 25 percent off all Dermaflash products. You’re probably familiar with the Dermaflash Luxe+ to rid your complexion of pesky dead skin cells and peach fuzz. Post-exfoliation, follow up with the ever-soothing Active Cocooning Serum, which is spiked with calming Mediterranean lavender and wrinkle-smoothing target peptides.
Now onwards: Skin looking a little dull? Ulta Beauty got the memo because major steals from Foreo and The Body Shop are abundant in the e-retailer’s vast sale section to give your skin a gentle round of exfoliation and overnight brightening.
Now onwards: Nordstrom is rolling out the presidential deals well in advance this year. How do we know? The beauty sale section is popping with discounts of up to 60 percent off (that’s not a typo, folks) on editor-beloved brands like Kate Somerville, Kiehl’s, and more. As usual, there are no promo codes involved and discounts are taken automatically in cart. Shop away and refresh practically every step of your beauty routine.
Now: For a limited time, the beauty goodies found in Credo’s Last Call section are slashed up to 40 percent off. Note that these are all final sale but if you’re in the market for a tinted sunscreen that’ll leave your skin looking perfectly dewy or a clarifying kaolin clay mask that’s as good for your skin as an actual smoothie, you can’t go wrong with these on-sale picks.
Like we said at the top, keep this page bookmarked as we inch closer to Presidents’ Day (February 20, 2023) and add more sales to this roundup. In the meantime, happy shopping!
