Sephora Sale Alert: The Best Gift Sets Are Marked Down for Black Friday

Coinage. Life, well spent. Presented by Geico. Striving to achieve that airbrushed look with your skin, spending a lot of money on different skin care products isn't always the answer. In fact, some skin treatments may even be giving you more blemishes. Here are five skin products dermatologists recommend you skip. Some people spend up to $250 on at-home chemical peels. They may seem like a cheap and easy way to achieve that spa glow. But doctors say that they may create more redness, or even scarring. Loofahs or buff puffs, which are around $5 apiece, are designed to exfoliate the skin. But these products are too abrasive to use on your face, and can make acne and eczema even worse. Costing up to $200 a pop, moisturizer with collagen is a big waste of cash. Dermatologists explain that when applied topically, collagen cannot be absorbed by the skin. Buying a moisturizer with collagen is essentially useless. Save your money and skip the fancy face product. Feeling the need to purchase an abrasive face scrub? Save that $8. These products can be highly irritating and can cause hyperpigmentation. At home microneedling devices can cost anywhere between $17 to $500. Since these devices poke tiny holes into your skin, dermatologists say that using them will make you at risk for an infection. Skip the hefty purchases and stick with seeing the doctor. You'll be sure to have a safe and clean experience. [MUSIC] Coinage. Life, well spent. Presented by GEICO

Go ahead and whip out your credit card because Sephora's Weekly-Wow Sale will make you want to give away all of your coins. The beauty retailer announced early in August that it would bless us on a weekly basis with new deals, but we had no idea that the savings would be this good for Black Friday.

The latest offerings include—wait for it—gift sets. It's the perfect time to rack up on gifts that will leave all of your friends impressed. One of our favorite kits on the roster is the Clarisonic Porefecting Set: Mia 2 and Boscia Best-selling Trio. It includes the oscillating brush tool and a cleanser, gel, and mask that will whip your pores into shape. For a limited time, it will be available for $135. That's a huge steal, especially since it's valued at $202.
