It's bittersweet when your faves retain their normal price tags during the bounty of Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. Such is the case for Dermalogica's Oprah-approved "superstar" Daily Microfoliant this year — or so you would think. After a bit of nosing around, we've discovered a sneaky way to save on the beloved face exfoliant.
Four Dermalogica skin sets are on sale for Cyber Monday, and the best deal, the $95 Our Best Cleanse + Glow Set, includes the brand's famed Daily Microfoliant, along with the PreCleanse and Special Cleansing Gel. Those three bring the set to a $143 value, yet it costs almost $50 less. "Love it. My skin looks and feels amazing — brighter, softer and smoother," wrote one shopper of the difference they saw from the three products.
If you aren't familiar with the lore of the Microfoliant, it's a favorite of beauty editors and happy reviewers for its work on wrinkles, visible pores, hyperpigmentation, and redness. Rice starch gently exfoliates dead skin cells alongside chemical exfoliants papain and salicylic acid, while colloidal oatmeal, allantoin, and ginkgo biloba extract provide soothing comfort and antioxidants. Finally, licorice root rounds out the pack for one last brightening aspect. A bottle of the good stuff alone is $59, so getting a full-sized version in the kit is a steal.

The Our Hydration Heroes set offers a juiced-up iteration of the best-seller via the Hydro Masque Exfoliant. Instead of a daily exfoliant, the mask delivers similar results in a five-minute session. "Finally something to help with blackheads I've had for years," wrote one person, who saw results within four days.
Dermalogica Multi-Active Toner and Skin Smoothing Cream join the Hydro Masque Exfoliant in the set, and the latter especially wins raves. After using it for years (some claim they've been loyal for a decade), a 46-year-old commenter wrote that they have no wrinkles and their collagen is still going strong.

The Our Deeply Nourishing Duo set is the second-to-last way to save on Dermalogica this Cyber Monday, and it features the brand's Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque and Super Rich Repair cream. Shoppers say their skin "has never been softer" or more moisturized thanks to the combination. Speaking to the Masque, one reviewer wrote, "Results are fantastic. My face is smoother and the texture of my face brighter and more youthful using this product once a week."
Fans are likewise effusive about the Super Rich Repair cream. "I am 65 years old, and my skin looked much older before I began using this product than I do now, eight years later," wrote a fan of the intensive moisturizer. "My skin has improved immensely, looks younger, and deep wrinkles (paren folds around [my] mouth) have been very reduced. I never want to be without this cream."

The Our Stressed-Skin Rescue pack is the last one on sale, this one a good taste-test of three products: a mini Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque, a 1-ounce Antioxidant HydraMist, and a full-sized Multivitamin Power Firm. The latter's a potent mixture of vitamins C and E, retinol, and Megan Fox's secret weapon, grapeseed oil. And per commenters, it doesn't mess around.
"Amazing product that really helps firm areas, reducing fine lines and wrinkles," wrote one person. Another said they've been using Power Firm for the last 10 years, and it's kept dark circles and wrinkles away for the whole stretch. "Honestly, my eyes were getting kind of saggy (yikes!!) and this seems like it's perked them right up," said a different user; added another, "it's silky smooth, and virtually smooths all fine lines and wrinkles."
Those benefits apply to the lip area, too, according to people who use it to keep small wrinkles in the area from spreading. A tube of Multivitamin Power Firm usually goes for $65, so at $69 for the set of three, the minis are practically free.
