Dermstore Anniversary Sale

The Dermstore Anniversary sale runs from August 7th through August 17th. You can get up to 26% off with code “SISTER.” They will be running their main sale and you can get the discount without our promo code, but you get an extra 1% with our code…so we are kind of a big deal.

The best deals during this event are always the Best of Dermstore kits. The kits contain several different items around a certain theme and are usually worth at least 3x what you pay. Even more when you buy at a discount! I love buying them because they are great for travel and I like trying new things!

There are a lot of other of my favorite brands on sale – like Sunday Riley for 26% off. I recommend just going to the main sale page and filtering out by brand!

Sephora: 20% off most foundations – ends 8.8.22

Unfortunately, Tom Ford is not included, which is my all time favorite foundation. However, there are a lot of brands included, like the YSL Skin Tint I have been wearing all summer. I like it because it is light on the skin, hydrates and gives me a glow but it does not look like I am wearing foundation. I use shade 6!

Westman Atelier: 15% OFF

Use code “HOWL15” for 15% off all Westman Atelier products.

Abercrombie : 30% off all jeans + 25% off everything else

If I recall, there is only one other time of the year where they markdown their denim to 30% off — this is a great deal. Their denim goes up to a size 22/24 in women’s. Missy and Kelly love their denim — especially their denim shorts. Ihe good thing about shopping at Abercrombie is that their return process is so easy. You will get credit/refund back as soon as it ships or you can return in store.

Abercrombie has two different types of jeans: Curve Love and Classic Fit. The only difference according to the measurements is that Curve Love are cut wider in the hip. They do not work for me because I have narrow hips, but they do work for Missy!

J.Crew: up to 50% off women’s and men’s + 40% off kid’s clothes

My favorite gauze shirt is on sale! All colors, too! This rarely happens! I love this shirt because it is so soft and goes with everything. It can be dressed up with a cardigan or you can wear with leggings. Most of all, it is just comfortable. I have three colors and sized down in two of the shirts and took my true size in one. I would say it depends on whether or not you have a big chest on what size to get. If you are not sure, check the reviews! I also love the slim-straight jeans and their button-up shirts. Would be a great time to stock up on work clothes!

Gap: 40% off everything + extra 10% off (w/ Gap Rewards)

Old Navy: All jeans on sale

Rebecca had a sleepover last night, so I am not going to be able to finish this post — they woke up so much earlier than I anticipated. Haha — sorry!
