Best of Dermstore Professional Kit

When it comes to shopping for skincare products, you’ve probably noticed that some of the best-rated items tend to be on the pricier side. While splurging on certain standbys from time to time is necessary, most of us don’t want to spend a lot of money on something without testing it first.

And that’s why we were so excited when we heard that Dermstore just launched a special, curated kit full of sample sizes of its top-rated, dermatologist-recommended products. The kit is full of the beloved beauty retailer’s skincare best sellers like SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic ($166;, Lancer Skincare Omega Hydrating Oil ($75;, and Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Extra Strength Daily Peel ($150;—all items that we’ve been wanting to try but didn’t want to spend the money on without knowing how they’d work on our skin first.

Each kit includes iS Clinical Cleansing Complex ($42;, a gentle face wash that exfoliates skin and reduces the appearance of pores; Lancer Skincare Omega Hydrating Oil, an anti-aging face oil that minimizes the look of fine lines and wrinkles; EltaMD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46 ($35;, a hydrating broad spectrum sunscreen; and PCA Skin Hyaluronic Acid Boosting Serum ($115;, an ultra-moisturizing and anti-aging face serum that’s loved by celebs like Drew Barrymore and Mindy Kaling.

Also included are the Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant ($59;, a gentle yet powerful powder exfoliator; Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Extra Strength Daily Peel, an at-home face peel that reduces the appearance of dark spots and wrinkles; SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic, a brightening vitamin C serum; and SkinMedica TNS Eye Repair ($102;, a nourishing eye cream that helps diminish crow’s feet and dark under-eye circles.

While the eight-piece kit is valued at $218, Dermstore is selling it for only $49.99—a $168 difference—meaning you can score some of the most beloved skincare products in the world for less than $7 each. Seeing as how full-size bottles of the above products range from $35 to $166 a piece, it’s definitely a smart idea to buy this relatively affordable kit before splurging on individual items.

To buy: $49.99;
