AMAZON: Buy what you love - and help Small Businesses (TODAY!!)

What a great chance to support small businesses and stock up on some of our favorite products!! Today is the last day of Amazon's Small Business Promotion that's acting as a 'lead up' to Amazon Prime Day. If you're not familiar with Prime Day, it's a once-a-year event (this year it's Tuesday-Wednesday, 13-14 October) where Amazon offers some of the best prices you'll see for the next 12 months.


1. You need to be an Amazon Prime member. If you're not yet and want to join, click here: https://amzn.to/3dxpnVv 2. Spend $10 (or more) today (12 October) on one of the designated small business products offered by Amazon (there are over 10,000 to choose from but my top picks are below!!). Once your order is processed you'll receive a $10 coupon to spend during Prime Day (13/14 October). That's all!! Who benefits?

A. The small business gets a boost in their sales.

B. You, as you get to stock up on products you love today AND get a coupon for $10 to spend on Prime Day - Tuesday, 13 or Wednesday 14 of October.

1. Drmtlgy Tinted Moisturiser SPF 46

I adore this sunscreen. The term 'universal tint' is a bit silly, as there's no such thing!! But

this tinted moisturizer with SPF 46 truly does blend down very well on most skin tones. I find that it leaves the perfect surface for makeup - sort of a moisturizer, SPF and primer all in one!! Drmtlgy was founded in 2017 by a skincare entrepreneur, partnered with an in-house medical doctor. They're based in southern California and not only very clever but also very nice!!

2. Mighty Patches

This is a new find! Before my discovery of 'maskne', it had been quite some time since I

had to worry about blemishes. Not any more!! Thankfully the Mighty Patches are super handy, discreet AND effective (so wishing I had these as a teen!!) There are are a lot of blemishes patches out there - and I've tried many - but these are my favorites. Ju, the founder of Hero Cosmetics (the company that makes the Mighty Patch) came up with the idea while an expat in Korea. The timing couldn't have been more perfect - Ju was facing hormonal acne for the first time in her life and noticed the trend of people proudly wearing stickers over their blemishes (in public!!). She took the idea back to the US, did her research, and came up with what I think are the best acne patches to be found.

3. DearSkin Tranex Dear Serum

I fell in love with DearSkin Tranex a few years ago when I discovered that it was one of the first companies to bring Tranexamic acid (an AMAZING active ingredient for pigmentation)

to the market in non-prescription strength. A few studies have found that tranexamic acid at 3-5% (DearSkin has 5%) is as effective at fading melasma as 2-4% hydroquinone, with fewer side effects. I love it when a small business is so ahead of the pack, delivering effective products at a reasonable price. I keep my eyes out but I still haven't found another product with Tranexamic acid that offers as effective a product at at a reasonable price.

4. Clearista Retexturizing Gel™

I'm generally not a huge fan of physical exfoliants. There are so many out there that have

tricky particles that can injure delicate skin. Clearista is a MAJOR exception. I adore this product and have been using it for years. Clearista's patented technology for removing the dull layer of stuff that makes our skin lackluster was invented with bigger goals - by the CIA!! As it happens, Clearista sloughs off (in just the right way) the outer layer of skin full of biomarkers that can be used for things like DNA collection. Hmm. Interesting!! What I care about is that it leaves my skin as soft as a baby's.
