Us DermStore employees sure are lucky girls, considering all the goodies that wind up on our desks on a near-daily basis. We love what we do, for sure, and you better believe we know what we love, too! With that in mind, and with the holidays creeping up at a rapid pace—gift ideas, anyone?—I polled a few of my coworkers on their latest beauty obsessions . Read on to discover what they (and I!) currently can’t live without!
This one’s a must-have for Jennifer, our Brand Manager. (For the record, I love it too.) “I don’t go anywhere without this one,” she reports. “It’s honestly my secret weapon that keeps my skin balanced—has loads of anti-aging ingredients.”
Our art director, Marissa, assures you this serum—a great option for those who want to treat brown spots and hyperpigmentation without hydroquinone, BTW—is life-changing. Or at least skin-changing. “It’s soothing, takes care of my breakouts, and feels wonderful when I put it on,” she says.
Need a gift idea, or deserve a gift yourself? TOCCA, our fave when it comes to old-world glamour and pretty things that smell great (check out their scented candles, too!) recently rolled out a new scent called Graciella. And Beth, DermStore’s social media manager, loves it: “It’s a wonderfully fresh, light scent that’s great for everyday wear.”
Do you prefer your beauty products free of chemicals and full of natural goodness? So does our marketing manager, Lauren. “I absolutely love this body oil!” she says. “The price is great AND it’s 100% natural, so I know my body isn’t absorbing any unhealthy ingredients. Plus, the smell is divine and the oil actually soaks into my skin. No greasiness! Just soft, silky hydration.”
My turn! I seriously don’t know how I ever lived without this hair oil, which I use to prep my hair for the curling iron. It smells AMAZING and creates a mirror-like shine—and, as promised, it tames smoothes and tames frizz like no other! What’s really miraculous, though, is that no matter how many times I re-apply (and those who know me know I rarely shampoo … once a week, twice at most) it doesn’t weigh my hair down. If you have long-ish hair and use a blowdryer, a curling iron or a flat iron, do yourself a favor and grab one of these pronto!
