Skin Care

If you can't tell by the abundance of choices below, this sale's strongest suit is skin-care products. Whether you're looking to stock up on sunscreen or smartly save on luxury brands, now's your chance to shop beloved skin-care products at a sliver of their normal prices. Cheers to healthy skin.

Sunday Riley Light Hearted Sunscreen SPF 30 uses the best of both sunscreen worlds — aka, a blend of mineral (zinc oxide) and chemical (octisalate and oxycrylene) UV filters — to shield skin from sun-induced harm, leaving behind a slightly glowy sheen that boosts your natural radiance. Plus, it contains turmeric to calm skin and reduce redness, while xanthophyll (a pigment found in plants) is said to protect skin from blue light. 

It's no secret that we rely on cleansing oils to melt and break down our most stubborn waterproof formulas. Caudalie's Make-Up Removing Cleansing Oil stays true to its name and employs nourishing almond oil, peptides, and brightening viniferine (grapevine sap extract) to cleanse and moisturize skin — all without leaving a trace of greasy or oily residue.

Thanks to a certain royal named Meghan Markle, RevitaLash Advanced Eyelash Conditioner has made headlines in the past. "I [use] Revitalash on my eyelashes, and I swear they are as long as they could ever be," Markle previously told Allure in 2017. It's a great non-prescription option that features a complex containing biotin, green tea extract, antioxidants, and peptides to promote stronger lashes.

If you're on a mission to achieve smoother, brighter skin, Tula Skincare's Get Toned Pro-Glycolic 10% Resurfacing Toner dramatically speeds up your skin's cellular turnover rate. Key ingredients include lactobacillus probiotic extracts and glycolic acid, which clear skin of dead cells and reveal a more radiant complexion in the short and long term. Mushroom, beet extract, and hyaluronic acid play important supporting roles in terms of plumping and hydrating skin.

The easiest way to upgrade your cleansing routine is to incorporate a handy tool and massage product into your skin. Dermalogica Precleanse Balm is chock-full of apricot kernel oil to melt away excess sebum, dirt, and makeup and works well with just your hands, but the double-sided cleansing mitt ensures deeper penetration of the formula for refreshed, smooth-as-hell skin.

The secret sauce in SkinMedica's TNS Essential Serum is none other than human growth factors packed with proteins, amino acids, peptides, and antioxidants to seriously reduce inflammation, lift skin, and slow down signs of aging. The upgraded version, TNS Advanced+ Serum, won a Best of Beauty Award in 2020 for its line-smoothing and elastin-boosting abilities.

Body Care

Don't neglect your skin below the neck. Whether you're experiencing an uptick in body acne or just dry, flaky skin overall, all areas of your body deserve careful attention and care. That includes SPF protection, too. Luckily, tons of brands like Glytone and Dr. Dennis Gross have effective options to treat just about every condition you can come across.

Beach and pool days are all fun and games until you get burned — literally. Stay protected with PCA Skin's Active Sunscreen SPF 45 which offers water resistance for up to 80 minutes and a combination of lightweight, cast-free mineral (zinc oxide) and chemical UV filters (octinoxate and octisalate) to prevent sun damage from forming.

Uneven skin texture is no match for Glytone's Exfoliating Body Lotion, which is formulated with 17.5 percent glycolic acid to remove dead skin cells and reveal more radiant skin hiding underneath. Vitamin E swoops in to deeply condition and protect skin against environmental aggressors.

The peeling process that accompanies the acid-laced plastic booties best known as Baby Foot might be the stuff of nightmares, but the baby-soft results are hard to argue with. Pop them on for an hour and then patiently wait for a few days for the peeling madness to begin. Our feet take on a lot of wear and tear and have thicker skin than basically any other area of your body, so get ready to shed and welcome your smooth, newborn-like stompers.

Hair Care

Whether you're still not super comfortable spending hours at a salon or have mastered your at-home hair-care routine over the past year, Dermstore has just about every hair product and tool you can imagine. Between all of the deep treatments, dry shampoos, and curl gels, it's worth taking your time to sift through deals from stylist-approved brands such as Living Proof, Briogeo, and Harry Josh Pro Tools to find the right fit for your texture and styling needs.

If you've gone all this time without trying the iconic, stylist-beloved blow-dryer, the best time to is right now because the entire Harry Josh Pro Tools line is 30 percent off for the Anniversary Sale. The Ultra Light Pro Dryer weighs less than one pound — a feature your arm muscles will surely appreciate — and is designed with 12 heat, speed, and ion settings, as well as two types of nozzle attachments, for ultimate versatility. 

The key to healthy hair starts with the scalp. Briogeo and Dermstore teamed up to produce an exclusive, limited-edition Scalp Revival Soothe Detoxify Duo to soothe itchy, irritated scalps and sweep away follicle-clogging debris. Start with the Charcoal + Coconut Oil Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo and follow up with the Charcoal + Tea Tree Cooling Hydration Scalp Mask to seal the scalp-caring deal.

For less than $100, you can snag the Gisele Bündchen-approved Harry Josh Pro Tools Ceramic Flat Styling Iron to create sleek hair for days. Because the plates are larger than most irons, measuring in at one-and-a-quarter inches, you can use fewer passes and save precious time while styling. And because Harry Josh has thought of everything, it has rounded edges that prevent snagging or pulling, as well as an automatic, one-hour shut-off time.

Give dry hair a hearty spritz of Living Proof No Frizz Instant De-Frizzer to tame stubborn, stray hairs that can't seem to cooperate and stay down. You'll experience smoother, shinier hair without the unnecessary buildup from heavier products.

Your hair will smell ridiculously fresh and invigorating, too — thanks to a blend of juniper, blood orange, violet, and more.

Virtue's Scalp Treatment Kit includes everything you need to kick-start a deep cleanse and blast away all of the gunk and buildup hiding in your roots. Use the Scalp Massage Tool to stimulate circulation and very satisfyingly work the Exfoliating Scalp Treatment into your scalp while you're in the shower. To nourish and hydrate a dry scalp, apply a few drops of the serum-like Topical Scalp Supplement before hopping into bed.


While you should still keep up your masking habits for the near future (and get vaccinated if you haven't already), we're experiencing a tad more freedom in terms of showing off full faces of makeup — only if that's your jam, of course. Next time you have a safe, intimate gathering with friends, pull out all of the stops and reacquaint yourself with the joy of getting ready, putting on blush and lipstick, and whatever makes your makeup-loving heart flutter.

We Ate Eat Clean, Play Dirty Recipes For a Week

You should know that I’ve been a major stan of the wellness company Sakara since I first found their website in college (spoiler alert: the branding is good). If you’re not familiar, Sakara is a plant-based meal delivery service, line of products, and lifestyle brand dedicated to making plant-based eating easy and helping people use food as medicine. As a wellness editor and holistic health coach, I have a lot of thoughts about how the wellness industry needs to change, like, yesterday (read: damaging diet culture, chemical-filled foods that pass as “healthy,” and an oversaturated supplement industry). Sakara has been one of the brands that, in my opinion, has always done it right. So when the founders released a cookbook, Eat Clean, Play Dirty, I ordered it as fast as I got my hands on a copy of Breaking Dawn when it came out in 2008 (since then, I’ve switched to #TeamJacob, thank you very much).

I’m a fan—nay, a worshipper—of a good wellness cookbook. I read them before bed as if they were novels and study them as if they were textbooks. “Extra,” maybe, but I do all the work so you don’t have to. I went through this one in literally three days and loved that while it was recipe-based, the cookbook took a holistic approach, acknowledging that food is only one piece of the cauliflower-based pie. “Lightwork” suggestions were sprinkled throughout the beet burgers and chickpea scrambles, ranging from writing a note with an affirmation to stick on your mirror to turning on your favorite song and practicing being silly. Not only is this the most lovely addition to any cookbook I’ve ever read, but it also made my week way more fun. Read on for what happened when I spent an entire week eating clean and playing dirty (or, you know, cooking only recipes from this Instagram-favorite cookbook).

Eat Clean, Play Dirty: Recipes for a Body and Life You Love

Shop now


First step: meal prepping

The first step, of course, was to grocery shop and prep a few basic ingredients for the week. Here were a few things on my grocery list that have most certainly never been on it before: a jar of roasted red peppers, scallions, raw beets, coconut meat, daikon, and kabocha squash. Despite being a bit intimidated by daikon, I successfully completed the grocery list and prepped a few items for the week ahead. The key to eating healthy, whole foods (with less-than-simple recipes) is to prep what you can in advance. I made a few sauces (like a vegan Green Goddess dressing made with avocado) as well as prepped some grains (a couple of the recipes I was making called for rice, but I used quinoa just because I prefer it). I also prepared and roasted beets in parchment paper and washed and dried all the produce. 



Yes, I did DIY my own sauces

My first reaction was that many of the meals were actually pretty simple, even if they seemed intimidating, thanks to DIY sauces or sophisticated ingredients. All of my lunch recipes took less than 20 minutes to prepare. I loved that I wasn’t eating basic salads or simple protein and steamed veggies—these foods had flavor. One of my favorite lunches of the week was actually pretty similar (in terms of structure) to a quinoa bowl in my typical weekly lunch rotation. However, the simple addition of roasted and seasoned green beans made a huge difference in flavor (I would’ve normally microwaved green beans or just added raw veggies), but the biggest game-changer was the sauce. 

Let me go off about the sauces for a second: Whoever said plant-based eating does not have drool-worthy flavor has not tried any of the sauce recipes in Eat Clean, Play Dirty. The Green Goddess that I was so obsessed with was super easy to make; it was basically scallions, avocado, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, cilantro, basil, and mint, all blended together in my Nutribullet. It was creamier and tastier than any Caesar dressing or non-vegan Green Goddess sauce I had ever had. Another favorite sauce from the week was a “cheese” sauce, AKA a creamy spread made with roasted red peppers and tahini I made for tacos (see below), but I straight up ate the leftovers with a spoon because it was that good. Lesson learned: Homemaking your own sauces is so much simpler than you think and worth the cleanup or prep. Plus, veggies taste better when they’re blended. 



“Plant-based” isn’t as scary as it sounds

Another lesson: Beets are shockingly easy to cook with from scratch and wildly delicious when they’re roasted. If you’re like me and have only really eaten beets in raw form (like a beet salad), know that they are freaking delicious and savory when you roast them in the oven with some olive oil and cumin *chef’s kiss*. Thanks to the helpful insert in the cookbook, I also learned that beets are rich in enzymes that are programmed to seek out damaging toxins and then neutralize and eliminate them (delicious and detoxifying? Yus please!).

In general, a lot of the recipes or items I was intimated by turned out to be pretty easy to work with. FYI: Plant-based doesn’t have to mean difficult or bland. I cooked most of these meals for my boyfriend (who has never met a buffalo wing he didn’t like), and he didn’t think twice about eating totally plant-based meals because I don’t even think he realized he was. Turns out, when he’s eating flavorful and delicious meals, he doesn’t really question what’s in them. 



While Eat Clean, Play Dirty is technically a plant-based and vegan cookbook, it definitely doesn’t feel like you’re taking away anything. The book is full of sandwiches, pizzas, pasta, desserts (more on that below), and it all looks so delicious, you forget that it’s leaving out some of your favorite foods, whether it’s chicken, brie cheese, or sourdough bread. A lot of nutrition cookbooks first focus on what not to eat or what to cut out, or they have a limited amount of healthy fats or portion sizes to restrict calories, so I love that Sakara fits so seamlessly with my own personal beliefs of adding as many whole foods to your plate as possible rather than taking away or limiting.


The goal of eating should be adding in as many nutrients as possible

The recipes may not be five-ingredients-and-under kind of simple, but I loved getting out all my veggies, grains, and flavors to marvel at how many nutrients I could fit into a meal. For example, the delicious little Rainbow Wraps above contained seven different whole foods in a small little package (and would’ve contained eight if I didn’t forget to buy the strawberries the recipe called for). Maybe our goal with food shouldn’t always be easier or less; maybe the goal should be to nourish our bodies more. 

Even the desserts were full of nutrients. TBH, I was pretty intimidated by the Sexy Cinnamon Rolls (I did not know what psyllium husk powder was and also could not find coconut palm sugar at the store), so I opted for these Seed Butter cookies that were fairly simple and took me under 10 minutes to assemble. Spoiler alert: If you were wondering if sunflower seed butter was a thing and if it could turn into cookies (as I know you were), it is and it can! If oat flour, seed butter, and honey can turn into delicious, decadent cookies, you can do anything. 



When all was said and done (and by that I mean the week was over and my fridge was completely empty), I truly felt the most nourished I had in a long time. After being used to the same basic recipes over and over again, my week with Sakara reignited my love for cooking and my passion for wellness—I wasn’t just going through the motions. Every day, I felt excited to cook and even more excited to eat.



Here’s What I Learned:

1. We can all be salad girls

I’m traditionally not the type to eat salads for meals. A side salad or starter, sure, but I never felt satisfied enough and typically crave something warm, a little tastier, or more filling. But after trying a variety of salads with additions like roasted tamari mushrooms or a creamy Green Goddess dressing, consider me an official convert. Basically, if you “don’t like veggies,” you’re not doing veggies right. I lived a lot of my teenage and young adult life thinking I wasn’t going to be one of “those girls” who ate salads for meals, called their diets plant-based, and said no to cheese or pasta (like that’s possible?). But ever since I proudly chowed down french toast sticks and spaghetti marinara (at the same time, yes, it has happened) in the high school cafeteria, I’ve learned that we are all “those girls;” it’s just about finding the foods that not only make us feel good but taste good too. Trust me, you won’t miss nacho fries or Dominos pizza when you’re shocked at how delicious a roasted red pepper “cheese” sauce tastes. 


2. You can do hard things

OK, so this is a Glennon Doyle quote that is meant to apply to actual life problems, but I think it can be applied to cooking my way through the Sakara cookbook too. No, many of the recipes were not “simple,” but I quickly learned that they were doable. Even complicated chutneys were a few basic ingredients mixed together in a bowl. Not to brag or anything, but I did DIY a vegan cheese, bake nutseed-based cookies, roast a raw beet, and make my own curry. And guess what? I did it during an extremely busy work week when my dog also happened to have severe diarrhea for about three days (sorry if that was TMI, but I just wanted to paint the picture that I didn’t have all day to twiddle my thumbs while waiting for the oven timer to go off). Bottom line: Dishes you never thought you could make might be more achievable and simple than you think. I can do it, and you can too. 



3. Romanticize lunches

Yes, I’m good at eating my veggies and pretty much only cook plant-based meals, but I typically rotate between the same lunches. Read: avocado toast, a quinoa bowl with some basic veggies and coconut aminos, or a salad wrap. Lunch has historically been about convenience and what’s in my fridge. But this week got me to realize how much better I felt when I took time to make my lunches feel special. Blending herbs into a delicious homemade dressing or roasting veggies with fresh spices not only made my lunches taste more delicious, but it also reminded me that every chance I have to eat is a chance to make my life a little more special. I’m big on romanticizing the little moments in life, and this was my reminder to romanticize lunch too. Catch me spending my lunch break DIYing sauces and blending gourmet soups from now on. It’s well worth the time and effort. 


4. Trying new things is a healthy eating hack

The biggest lesson I learned after this week is to become more adventurous in the produce I can cook. Roast a beet? Never thought I’d do that in my life. Purchase and cook chard? Astonishing. Rather than sticking to the same grocery list of produce (spinach, berries, avocado, repeat), I feel much more confident in my ability to pick out what’s in season or try a new veggie and figure out a way to make it delicious. Also, that aforementioned basic meal rotation? Consider it a thing of the past. Trying new flavors, foods, and recipes are not only the way to keep cooking interesting but also the most enjoyable way to eat healthy foods that make your body feel good.

Sephora Has Officially Landed in Kohl’s Stores

All products featured on Allure are independently selected by our editors. However, when you buy something through our retail links, we may earn an affiliate commission.

Back in December 2020, capping off a year of not-so-great news, Sephora and Kohl's announced a partnership that was very much in the opposite vein and made our beauty-sensitive heart rates spike. The above image and title might have spoiled it, but say hello to 2,500 square foot Sephora stores that will fully be integrated within existing Kohl's locations. 

By the end of this fall, you can shop all of your favorite Sephora products at 200 Kohl's stores via a special, branded entrance, to boot (pictured below). "You really feel like you are in a Sephora, from the lighting, brand assortment, elevated fixturing, and trained associates," Doug Howe, Kohl's chief merchandising officer, tells Allure over a phone call. 

The goal of this special collaboration is very much to treat, curate, and update Sephora at Kohl's in the same ways as a standalone Sephora store would be. The added bonus, of course, is offering Kohl's consumers — especially those who have never stepped foot in Sephora, oftentimes because they don't live near one — the total beauty package.

You can find the full list of Sephora at Kohl's locations on Kohl's corporate website. If you're bummed that there isn't one within driving distance just yet, don't fret. The two retailers plan to open a whopping 400 Sephora at Kohl's locations by 2022 and an even more impressive 850 locations by 2023. (Talk about an expanded customer base.) And starting August 1, you can shop Sephora at Kohl's online exclusively at — mirrored by all of the same, detailed breakdowns and community reviews you'd find on

And get this, for all of you rewards-obsessed shoppers, all of your Sephora at Kohl's purchases will qualify for both retailers' rewards programs, Beauty Insider and Kohl's Cash. That is quite literally a win-win situation if I've ever called one.

Shoppers can expect to see a massive array of 125 brands (and 8,500 total items) housed within Sephora at Kohl's locations, including many of the classic brands they trust, like Lancôme, Caudalie, Ole Henriksen, Make Up for Ever, Charlotte Tilbury, and Fenty Beauty — as well as up-and-coming beauty brands like One/Size, Glow Recipe, The Inkey List, and Innbeauty. "These are really our top-selling, top-trending brands at Sephora across all categories," Artemis Patrick, EVP/Global Chief Merchandising Officer at Sephora, tells Allure. 

Patrick notes that Sephora at Kohl's will also feature special curations that you'd normally see in a freestanding Sephora, like the "clean beauty" endcaps, "Next Big Thing" displays, and top-selling "Sephora Favorites" gondolas. After my virtual walkthrough tour prior to this call, I can definitely confirm that all of the displays and formatting look spot-on to what you'd find at Sephora. And as someone who grew up in the suburbs going to Kohl's very regularly (before I became engrossed in beauty and memorized the ins and outs of Sephora), it's really like the best of both worlds.

Check out the full roster of 125 brands for all of the deets, and then check out some of our must-try products below to get a head start on shopping all of this beauty goodness:

Letter From the Editor: Michelle Lee Bids Her Final Goodbye

I'm terrible at goodbyes. I've certainly had a fair share in my lifetime. Moving to new schools. Switching jobs. Just this fall, we packed up our house of 16 years and moved to my husband's childhood hometown. Now, after nearly six years at Allure, I'm closing this chapter and heading to a sunny new coast for a big new role at Netflix. And I'm struggling to find the right words. 

It's an exciting moment, but bittersweet because I'll miss everyone at Allure so much. This has been a dream job, where I thought I'd stay forever. I still pinch myself over the incredible experiences I've had during my time here. I've interviewed icons (Helen Mirren, Lupita Nyong'o) and trailblazers (Awkwafina, Mj Rodriguez). I sat front row at a fashion show in an English castle and soaked up skin-care history in Shizuoka, Japan. I had my nails painted by masters and rang the opening (and closing!) bell at the New York Stock Exchange. But the memories I'll hold most dear revolve around what the brilliant team here accomplished. 

When I first started this job, I did a Q&A session for about a hundred members of our revenue team. In a final, fun speed round, the interviewer peppered me with questions like, "What three words best describe you," "Favorite lip color?" and ended on: "What's your goal for Allure?" Without hesitation, I answered, "I want to change the world." 

At the time, I said it with a wink. But nearly six years later, I'm immensely proud of how much ground we moved. We genuinely shifted the way people look at and talk about beauty. We helped change the global narrative around aging. We challenged the way the industry talks about sustainability. We explored, deeply, the culture of hair and skin color and race and the many ways the traditional beauty machine has excluded people. We challenged the antiquated notion of who gets to be beautiful. We celebrated many firsts (the first man, first trans woman, first model with Down syndrome on our cover) and rejected tokenism (after having only two Asian cover stars in the first 28 years of Allure, we've featured 8 in just the past few years). We did all this while maintaining and expanding Allure's authoritative science reporting and product reviews everywhere from these pages to our Science of Beauty podcast. 

I want to thank the whole team, past and present, who made these years so special. And I'm so grateful to all of you out there who've supported what we do. This may be goodbye, but I'll be a reader and watcher and consumer of all things Allure, always. To quote Keats, "A thing of beauty is a joy forever."
