Regardless of a product's allure or unceasing buzz, it can be really, really difficult to bite the bullet and invest more than $50 or $100 for a beauty product. And if something is over $150, well, that just takes the dilemma to a whole new level, entirely. That said, even though there are plenty of ultra-spendy products on the market I would tell you to most definitely pass on, certain elixirs are worth every damn penny. The majority of which, hail from a little brand called SkinCeuticals. Ever heard of it?
Finding and investing in Silymarin CF (the brand's newest antioxidant-powered serum for oily and acne-prone skin) was the best thing to happen to my complexion maybe ever, and even though the $166 price tag makes me a tad clammy, its efficacy has made other products that were clogging up my bank account and counter space obsolete. Still, $166 is nothing to sneeze at, so you can bet your buttons that the instant I heard Dermstore was offering a SkinCeuticals-exclusive sale from September 15 through September 20, I was all over it—filling my cart and texting everyone I know. (Because yes, everyone I know has at least one skincare infatuation bearing the SkinCeuticals name.)
Here's the scoop: Simply shop until you drop on Dermstore's website and then use code SKINC15 to score 15% off your products at checkout. The deal can't be combined with other discounts, and just remember that at the stroke of 11:59 p.m. PT on September 20, the spell will be broken and your favorite products will go back to their standard pricing. To give you a headstart, I've listed 20 of Dermstore's top-selling SkinCeuticals products below, all of which are up for grabs at the 15% discount. Keep scrolling and get shopping!

SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF ($141)
While C E Ferulic is great for normal to drier skin types, and while Silymarin CF is great for oily and acne-prone skin types, antioxidant powerhouse Phloretin CF is best for people who toe the line between oily and normal.

SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic ($141)
Here it is, quite possibly the most iconic serum of all time, beloved by folks of all ages and skin types. If you're looking for a crème de la crème serum that pretty much does it all—from brightening to firming to protecting—you absolutely need this holy-grail elixir in your everyday skin kit.

SkinCeuticals Silymarin CF ($141)
This is my favorite SkinCeuticals product of all time. (I even wrote an entire dedicated review about it here.) Essentially, it's basically like the famed C E Ferulic serum but for peeps who veer oily and/or acne-prone. It's oil-free and made with specific ingredients to keep the aforementioned at bay. Thus, I'm not surprised it's quickly become the brand's #1 best-seller at Dermstore.
