Who needs a stress-filled weekend away when you can stay in and shop the best Memorial Day beauty sales from the comfort of your bed, with zero responsibilities calling your name? And if you’re catching the travel bug, well, you can still do your shopping from the road. The best Memorial Day sales have already begun for some beauty brands and retailers, with more on the way in just a few days. From now through the May 30 holiday weekend, we’ll be keeping tabs on all corners of the internet for excellent skin-care and makeup sales so that you don’t miss a thing.
Whether your sunscreen stock needs replenishing ahead of summer, you’re looking for a moisturizer that works with your skin, or you’re waiting for that coveted AHA serum to finally go on sale, we can basically guarantee that you’ll have hoards of products to choose from ahead of the long weekend. Though not all retailers have rolled out sales yet, retailers like Nordstrom, Ulta, Skinstore, and Sephora have marked down tons of stock ahead of the holiday.
If you’ve got a serious case of the Shoppies (same), take a gander at some of the other sales we’re scoping out ahead of time, from the best clothing sales to mattress sales and furniture sales, and more. For now, here’s everything we know about the best Memorial Day beauty sales so far, plus the picks we’re adding to our carts. Time to do some damage.
Nordstrom is still quiet about what exactly its annual Half-Yearly sale will include—which to us means there’s a gold mine of deals waiting to be revealed. In the meantime you can find products on sales (and marked down up to 45%), like Murad’s bestselling clarifying cleanser for oily and acne-prone skin, calming sheet masks from Foreo, Aveda hair products, Nuface devices, fragrances from Nest, and more.
We can’t get enough of Supergoop’s selection of universal SPF products, like the cult-favorite Unseen Sunscreen and the fast-absorbing, ultra-light Play body sunscreen. From now through Tuesday, May 24, the entire Supergoop! website will be 20% off with the code SUNNY20. Time to stock up!
We’re halfway through Ulta’s major Gorgeous Hair Event, but don’t worry, there are still plenty of markdowns throughout the rest of the month. Luxury hair products, from Bumble and Bumble’s nourishing conditioners to Madison Reed toning shampoos to high-end tools, are up to 50% off through May 28.
If you haven’t shopped at Skinstore yet, now is the time to start. Find skin essentials from brands you know and love like K-beauty favorite DHC, First Aid Beauty, Neocutis, Elemis, and more. Use code SS20 right now to get 20% off nearly 5,000 products at Skinstore. Starting May 24, take up to 40% off select brands. What’s more, discounts go up to 50% off from May 26 through May 31 in case you want to wait and save even more.
Last year, Sephora offered major markdowns on thousands of products spanning makeup, fragrance, skin, and hair care, and we’re crossing our fingers for more of the same in 2022. In the meantime snag sought-after deals in the retailer’s current sale section. We’re keeping our eyes on everything Fenty, plus sample sets filled with luxury brands.
We love Glow Recipe’s effective products, and thankfully the brand has already given us the full details of its Memorial Day spring sale. From May 26 through May 30, everything—including the SELF editor beloved AHA/BHA Strawberry Smooth Serum—will be 15% off. The only thing excluded are kits. All you need to do to nab the deals is type in the code GLOWFAM at checkout.
We love Dermstore for derm-approved, luxury-grade skin, body, and hair products. And if last year is any indication, Dermstore’s Memorial Day 2022 sale is going to be a good one. Ahead of the long weekend, the retailer moved hundreds of skin-care products to its ever-growing sale section, including travel-sized bundles and seriously effective night creams.
Stock up on bestselling CC creams and primers from It Cosmetics between May 29 and May 31, when the whole site will be 25% off, plus an extra 10% off sale items. We’d also recommend throwing a few dollars at the top-rated Superhero Elastic mascara.
Byoma is a newish brand focused on repairing and replenishing the skin’s microbiome (yep, it’s not just your gut that has one!). Not only does the brand have already accessibly-priced cleansers, serums, and moisturizers, but from now through May 21, if you spend $25 on the brand at Target, you’ll get $5 off.
Another powerful derm-approved skin-care brand, Lancer Skincare is having a Memorial Day sale with 25% off sitewide with the code FRIENDS25. The brand makes an excellent body exfoliant, and its Caviar Lime Acid Peel is a bestseller for a reason: It’s an at-home peel that uses retinol and glycolic acid to target fine lines and uneven skin tone.
Where are all of our self-tanner fans? Get a healthy, sun-free glow with Tan-Luxe’s Super Edit Bundle, which is 50% off from now until May 31. The kit includes full-size bottles of the brand’s Super Glow and Super Glow Body tanners, both of which contain hyaluronic acid to hydrate your skin while you gradually build your tan.
You know Charlotte Tillbury for its iconic Pillowtalk lipstick and range of foundations, but trust us: The suite of other CT makeup and skin-care products is also worth your attention. Take 15% off on build-your-own beauty kits (which, yes, can include Pillowtalk) from May 27 to May 30.
Elizabeth Arden knows a thing or two about potent skin care to prevent premature aging and promote healthy aging. From May 30 through June 6, use the code REFRESH for 15% off $50+, 20% off a $75+, or 25% off $100 or more. If you’re not sure what to add to your cart, we recommend any of the capsules, which are filled with superhero ingredients like ceramides, retinol, hyaluronic acid, or vitamin C. Just mix them in with your moisturizer and go—it’s that simple.
K-Beauty brand Erborian, which specializes in products for a short and efficient skin-care routine, just announced its long weekend sale. From May 27 through June 1, take 15% off sitewide (except for kits and sets) with the code MEMORIAL15. For more goodness, if you spend more than $85, you’ll get a free Micellar Cleansing Water with code WATER. If you’re serious about your beauty deals, sign up for Erborian’s emails and you’ll receive an exclusive offer of an additional 20% off site-wide. You’ll want to try out the BB and CC creams, as well as the makeup primers.
Attention all Jet Lag mask lovers: Summer Fridays just announced its sale so you can explore the full range of its effective, beautifully-packaged skin-care goodies. During Memorial Day weekend, you can get a free Morning Minis Skincare Set ($62 value) when you spend more than $99, which, trust us, is an easy thing to do.
