If the stress of a summer spent in the throes of a global pandemic has reflected upon your skin, you’re not alone. Even “mask-ne”—acne brought on by dermal irritation from wearing a mask—is associated with anxiety: sure, a face covering will trap sweat, dirt, and bacteria on your skin, but worrying about the reason you’re wearing that mask doesn’t help matters. Plus, now that some cities are opening up, a return to regular sun exposure means it’s time to re-up on products. Luckily, skincare options from some top brands are currently being slashed in price. So if you’ve been lusting after MZ Skin’s refining mask, Glow Recipe’s eye cream, or the Terry Baume de Rose’s Lip Care balm—which Helena Christensen’s favorite aesthetician Angela Caglia recently told us is her go-to for lip hydration—now is the time to buy. Here, we’ve combed through online shops to find the nine best skincare products to purchase before they’re gone.

By Terry Baume de Rose Lip Care, $32.50,

An industry favorite, Terry Baume de Rose’s Lip Care contains ceramides, which aesthetician Angela Caglia told W are important for lip health. “It’s very hydrating and there’s this soft, real rose aromatherapy that makes it a treat to apply,” she said. It instantly feels luxe. [And] ceramides help restore the lipid barrier on my lips.”

Clinique Mineral Sunscreen, 21.37,

Whether you’re spending time outdoors or are still observing quarantine measures, you’ll still need sunblock. Clinique’s mineral formulation is a great, clean beauty option that goes on invisible and contains no oily ingredients.

MZ Skin Radiance & Renewal Instant Clarity Refining Mask, $75,

MZ Skin’s refining mask contains concentrated fruit acid complex, which works to stimulate cell turnover and promote a healthy glow.

Dr. Brandt Pores No More Vacuum Cleaner Pore Purifying Mask, $33.60,

While minimizing the appearance of pores, this purifying mask also addresses acne—salicylic acid is one of the main ingredients—so that any mask-ne plaguing you can clear up.

Glow Recipe ID.AZ Eye Care Cream, $44.80,

You’ve seen the memes, and you know it’s true: it’s time for an eye cream. Even if you’re not old enough to know who Jonathan Taylor Thomas is, an eye cream could still work in your favor as a preventative measure. Glow Recipe’s version contains squalane, sesame Oil, and ylang-ylang to soothe the under-eye area.

Kiehl’s Jumbo Ultra Facial Cleanser, $21,

This product is technically a Nordstrom exclusive, but only because of its size—Kiehl’s doesn’t usually stock its best-selling cleanser in 7.8 fl. oz.

Linné Scrub Exfoliating Face Mask, $29.70,

If you’re not holed up at home experimenting with DIY face masks, try Linné—an entirely botanical, organic skincare line. In the brand’s exfoliating mask, bamboo silica and sugar cane gently scrubs, while chamomile calms redness and inflammation.

Murad Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum, $43,

This serum fades the appearance of any dark spots, age spots, or sun spots you might have accumulated since June. The beauty of Murad’s product is that it works for nearly every skin type.

MZ Skin Brighten & Perfect 10% Vitamin C Corrective Serum, $175.50,

Ingesting vitamin C has its health benefits—why not put it on your skin too? MZ Skin’s serum targets hyperpigmentation and reverses age spots.
