Guilt-Free Beauty Splurges You Can Make Now

Written by: Susan Hang


If I can help it, I try suppressing my deepest desires to buy beauty products until right around Black Friday!

I’m going off of last year, but Dermstore, Birchbox, and Skinstore all had amazing offers on Black Friday. These retailers step it up year after year, so you don’t even have to wait to shop. Lucky for us beauty-obsessed, Dermstore is running 25% off their entire site right now using the code Countdown! Who knows what tricks they have up their sleeves this upcoming Friday! But if you’re not game to wait, that’s cool too… Whether you’re stocking up on staples or buying gifts, here are some guilt-free beauty splurges you can go ahead and make right now:

beauty splurges 2016Alterna Caviar Moisture Duo

I received a deluxe sample a few years ago and still remember how soft and fluffy the shampoo and conditioner made my hair feel. $50 can feel quite expensive for hair care, but at a discount, I assure you, it’s 100% worth the buck!

Dr. Dennis Gross Holiday Skincare Collection

Dr. Dennis Gross skincare products are always high on my favorites! I first encountered the brand in 2013 when I was desperately looking to cure my acne. His exfoliating pads are a dream come true and moisturizers are so damn good. And as of late, I’m hooked on his retinols. You can’t go wrong here!

Beauty Blender Pro on the Go

Everyone needs a beauty blender. Seriously! Fast application and flawless skin – what more could a girl ask for? This kit gives you everything you need. It also makes the perfect gift for a makeup newb.

Tarte Tartelette In Bloom Eyeshadow Palette

This eyeshadow palette gives you a good mix of warm tones, plus matte and shimmery shades. I don’t know any girl who complains about eyeshadow when she gets it…

Kevyn Aucoin The Neo Bronzer Palette

First off, isn’t that ombre effect too pretty to touch? I saw Monika Blunder demonstrate this product in one of her videos, and I just could not stop thinking about it! It’s a 3-in-1 face palette that appears to be full of life (and light). I already love the contouring powder, so I’m extra excited about this one.

beauty splurges to make this year

Anastasia Brow Wiz

Talk about staples – I buy 3 backups from Dermstore every year. And I’ll do it again this year – no shame!

Nuxe My Dream Set

I was sold at the Dry Oil & Reve de Miel Lip Balm – this is a dry-skinned girl’s dream come true. I haven’t tried the moisturizer, but the other two products are more than convincing. (P.S. Nuxe USA will also be running 30% off all orders Friday, November 25 through Sunday, December 4 – no discount needed.)

By Terry Impearlious Ombre Blackstar

I love everything I’ve ever tried from the By Terry line, but it’s just sooo expensive. This kit is a great value though, especially when I hear so many great things about the cream shadow sticks. All neutrals too – double like!

Eve Lom Travel Essentials

I love how minimal this kit looks, plus we all know that Eve Lom offers nothing, but first-rate skincare products. With the traveling that I do, this is almost essential!

Le Metier de Beaute Daily Refresh Tonic

Because if you’ve been wanting to try this stuff, now’s the time. It’s officially reached holy grail status for me!
