The Best Amazon Prime Day Skincare Deals of 2022
Cleansers & Exfoliators
Youth To The People Kale + Green Tea Superfood Face Cleanser (22% Off)
Youth To The People Kale + Green Tea Superfood Face Cleanser is one of my all-time favourite gel cleansers (reviewed here). It’s sulfate-free, with a slightly thicker gel texture that produces a gentle but deep-cleansing lather. It rinses clean with zero residue and never leaves my skin feeling tight or dry.
Mizon BSA Black Head Away Liquid (25% Off)
It’s no secret that I love betaine salicylate, a type of BHA exfoliant that is gentler and more hydrating than salicylic acid—but just as effective! I recently discovered Mizon BSA Black Head Away Liquid, which is a new alternative to my beloved COSRX. It contains 0.9% betaine salicylate (9,000 ppm), so it’s milder and ideal for daily use by all skin types. Plus, it has the same fresh liquid feeling on your skin!
Farmacy Deep Sweep 2% BHA Toner (25% Off)
Ursa Major Essential Face Wipes (20% Off)
Ursa Major Essential Face Wipes are one of the few face wipes I’ll use on my skin. They’re saturated in the brand’s cult-favourite skin tonic, which cleanses, exfoliates, soothes and hydrates with ingredients like aloe vera, willow bark, sugarcane and hyaluronic acid. Unlike most wipes, they’re also biodegradable.
Serums, Mists & Treatments
COSRX Propolis Ampoule (43% Off)
This COSRX Propolis Ampoule has long been one of my favourite hydrating serums. It’s made from 83.25% propolis extract, which is not only moisturizing but also anti-inflammatory (so it helps to soothe and reduce redness). I love that there are only 11 ingredients in total—and no silicones, oils or fragrance.
Verso Super Facial Serum (19% Off)
If you’re in the market for a new retinol, Verso Super Facial Serum is one of my top picks. Its star ingredient is “Retinol 8,” a.k.a. retinyl retinoate, a next-gen retinoic acid ester. It’s so potent that the 0.1% concentration is said to be equivalent to 0.8% retinol, minus the usual irritation. I used this through the winter and loved it!
Paula’s Choice Clinical 20% Niacinamide Vitamin B3 Concentrated Serum (20% Off)
I’m a huge fan of niacinamide because it has such a long list of skin benefits—and Paula’s Choice Clinical 20% Niacinamide Vitamin B3 Concentrated Serum has one of the highest concentrations, at 20%. If you’re dealing with large pores, bumpy skin or blotchiness, this is one of the best niacinamide serums to try. It’s also silicone-free, oil-free and fragrance-free.
Mario Badescu Drying Lotion (40% Off)
Avène Thermal Spring Water (30% Off)
Avène Thermal Spring Water is one of my go-to face mists and a French pharmacy staple. I feel like everyone needs a bottle in their arsenal, since you can use it to refresh, cool, soothe and set makeup. Unlike regular water, thermal water has trace minerals that reduce inflammation and support a healthy skin barrier.
Differin Gel (20% Off)
If you want the strongest possible over-the-counter retinoid, Differin Gel with 0.1% adapalene could be for you. Adapalene is form of vitamin A that is gentler and less irritating than tretinoin (since it only binds to select retinoid receptors). It’s a proven treatment for acne, and has also been found to treat signs of aging such as wrinkles.
Moisturizers & Sunscreens
REN Clean Skincare Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream (30% Off)
REN Clean Skincare Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream is REN’s bestselling face cream, and if you’ve ever tried this, it’s not hard to see why. Even though it is specifically formulated for sensitive skin—and therefore is loaded with nourishing emollients—it has a surprisingly light and non-greasy feel on your skin. Like everything else in their calming range, it also helps to soothe redness while it hydrates. For more on this brand, see my review here.
Kinship Self Reflect SPF 32 Probiotic Moisturizing Sunscreen (25% Off)
Even though we’re heading into the cooler months, you still need a good mineral sunscreen year-round. You can’t go wrong with Kinship Self Reflect SPF 32 Probiotic Moisturizing Sunscreen. Although it’s geared at acne-prone skin, all skin types will love its lightweight texture and sheer, non-whitening finish. It’s also highly protective thanks to 22.4% zinc oxide.
Pyunkang Yul Moisture Cream (20% Off)
You might remember Pyunkang Yul Moisture Cream from my list of the best face moisturizers. This K-beauty formula has a luxe, whipped texture that doesn’t feel heavy, sticky or greasy. The brand specializes in sensitive and acne-prone skin, so it’s also free of irritating and comedogenic ingredients (like fragrance and silicones). More people need to know about this cream—it’s so good!
Foreo Luna 3 (30% Off)
The Foreo Luna 3 is one of the skincare tools I can’t live without. It’s a sonic-powered cleansing brush that gently but thoroughly lifts away dirt, oil and excess sebum—and does a far better job than your fingers can! Unlike nylon cleansing brushes, it’s made of silicone, which is soft on your skin and way more hygienic. This is a real game-changer for removing stubborn sunscreen and makeup.
NuFace Mini Facial Toning Device (25% Off)
Microcurrent uses painless electrical currents to stimulate your facial muscles for a lifted look and firmer skin over time. The NuFace Mini Facial Toning Device has all you need to get started: a mini microcurrent device, plus a silicone-free gel primer. It only takes five minutes a day, five days a week—and as long as you’re consistent with your treatments, it really does work!
Vital Proteins Grass-Fed Desiccated Beef Liver Pills (30% Off)
Vital Proteins Grass-Fed Desiccated Beef Liver Pills are a great way to increase the amount of vitamin A in your diet, especially if you don’t like the taste of liver. Beef liver is the most concentrated source of vitamin A, which is essential for keeping your skin clear and acne-free. I’ve taken these for years!
Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides Powder (35% Off)
Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides Powder is one of the best ways to build healthy skin from within. This is a pure, unflavoured, ingestible collagen powder that you can stir into drinks, soups, and smoothies for an extra boost of protein and the full spectrum of amino acids. I swear by this stuff—it absolutely makes a difference!
