Washing away all of the sweat, oil, and sunscreen at the end of a long day isn’t just great for your skin—it also feels pretty amazing. You’ll find several options on sale that can get the job done, but we recommend checking out Peace Out’s Pore Perfecting Cleanser. This 2024 SELF Healthy Beauty Award winner feels soft to the touch thanks to its creamy formula, but uses exfoliating ingredients to combat acne while giving skin a nice glow.

No matter which skin type you have, after cleansing, your face needs the hydration that comes from a good moisturizer. The SELF team put a bunch to the test for our 2024 Healthy Beauty Awards—one standout is Youth To The People’s Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream, which has a light texture that layers well with other skin care. One tester said: “It just made my face look and feel so good. I didn’t think I’d be running to repurchase a $48 cream, but here I am!” (Lucky for you, it’s just $36 during the sale.)

Serum, oil, and treatment deals

Serums, oils, and treatments can tackle dryness, discoloration, acne, and almost any other skin woes you might have. Tula’s 24-7 Ultra Hydration Serum is packed with three forms of hyaluronic acid to help your skin stay plump and smooth—you can slip this 2023 Healthy Beauty Award winner into your A.M. or P.M. routine (or both). We also have to mention Peace Out’s Skincare Acne Day Dots, another Healthy Beauty Awards standout. One tester said: “Out of all of the acne patches I’ve tried, these are some of the best! They’re thinner than others on the market, which makes them more comfortable to wear all day (or night, if you prefer to sleep with a patch on).”

The only thing better than stepping into a cool shower after a hot day is using a soap, serum, or scrub that feels (and smells) like a spa treatment. Our top pick? Youth To The People’s Superfood + Niacinamide Body Cleanser, a 2024 Healthy Beauty Awards favorite. “If I imagine what a rich person’s body wash would look like in their luxury bathroom, it’s this product,” one tester said. “My body felt super refreshed, revitalized, and hydrated after using this, and it’s become my new go-to.”

Finding a sunscreen that doesn’t make you feel sticky or look like Casper the Friendly Ghost isn’t impossible, but it might take some trial and error. We found some solid options during our 2024 Healthy Beauty Awards, including Kiehl’s Better Screen UV Serum. Its lightweight consistency glides on easily, and one tester said it gave their skin a nice, dewy appearance.

Shampoo and conditioner deals

This is not a drill: During the sale, you can get 25% off almost all shampoos and conditioners at Sephora (with a few exceptions). We can think of several options worth rinsing and repeating with. If you’re searching for a set, we recommend Nécessaire’s The Shampoo and The Conditioner, both of which are formulated to avoid irritating sensitive scalps. The duo won SELF’s 2023 Healthy Beauty Awards testers over, who praised The Shampoo for its gentle but thorough clean and The Conditioner for softening and detangling hair in one swoop.

Some of our tried-and-trues: Kosas’ Brow Pop Nano that’ll add shape and definition, Saie’s Dew Blush for a fresh-from-the-sun flush, and Laura Mericer’s Real Flawless Weightless Perfecting Concealer to touch up blemishes or dark circles.
