New & Exclusive Kits at Dermstore

It’s that time of year when many of us are looking to switch up our beauty routines for the warmer weather. With so many new launches and existing products, it can be difficult to discern where to spend our hard-earned money. My favorite way to try a multitude of new items at a reduced price is to invest in value sets and kits. Dermstore recently launched two exceptionally-priced options for the skincare lover: the Dr. Whitney Bowe Beauty Skin Cycling Program and the Best of Dermstore: Conscious Beauty Edit Kit

Dr. Whitney Bowe is a board-certified dermatologist with a presence on social media. With more than 1 million followers on TikTok, Dr. Bowe has garnered an audience of loyal supporters who rave about her products. The Skin Cycling Program kit contains the Exfoliation Night-Resurfacing + Brightening Serum, Retinal Night Advanced .1% Retinal Firming Treatment, the Bowe Glow Microbiome Nourishing Cream, and a fluffy white headband to keep hair out of your face. 

I’ve been testing out these three items according to Dr. Bowe’s renowned “skin cycling” technique, which involves an exfoliation night, followed by a retinoid night, concluding with two recovery nights to give skin a break. I’ve been absolutely loving my results to date–and as someone with easily-irritated skin, that is quite impressive. I have found that skin cycling clears breakouts without “overdoing it” in terms of the use of chemicals on the skin, and I highly recommend this set. The exfoliator and retinoid do not sting, and the cream, although chock full of squalane, ceramides, hyaluronic acid and more, is light enough to use in the morning as well as the evening. I think my favorite of the three is the exfoliation serum–finally, an AHA/BHA/PHA blend that doesn’t inflame my face!

The Conscious Beauty Edit will make you question if you’re reading the description correctly; it comes with an unbelievable amount of clean and ethically-made products for the price. You will receive The Nue Co. Mind Energy Fragrance, jane iredale Glow Time Blush Stick in Glorious, Eminence Organic Skin Care Stone Crop Hydrating Mist, Indie Lee Soothing Cleanser, REN Clean Skincare Radiance Brightening Dark Circle Eye Cream, Pai Skincare Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil, Act+Acre Fulvic Acid Volumizing Dry Shampoo, Agent Natueur Holi (Wash) Ageless Resurfacing Body Wash, the Grown Alchemist Intensive Hand Cream, and a large cream-colored cosmetics bag to fit it all inside. 

I’ve taken my time testing out all of the above, and my standouts are the REN eye cream (it truly does brighten dark circles), the Agent Nateur body wash (treat your body like your face!), and the Indie Lee cleanser (it contains PHA, my favorite chemical exfoliant because of its larger molecule size–aka it’s gentler). I have also been loving spritzing the Nue Co. Mind Energy Fragrance as a little pick-me-up as I work from home; it smells like a revitalizing blend of sage, pepper, and clove–bright with a smooth base.
