As the holiday season approaches, it's the perfect time to gift yourself to radiant, glowing skin, and we know just the treat. Medik8 is throwing a massive Black Friday sale with deep discounts on almost all of its professional-grade skin care. Top of our list, though, is the Medik8 Press & Clear (originally $38, now $26), a triple-threat exfoliant that smooths, clears, and hydrates in just a single swipe. And it's 30 percent off now through November 28, alongside some of the brand's best-selling cleansers, serums, moisturizers, eye creams, and more.

Medik8 Press & Clear
Medik8, Press & Clear — $26.00

Originally $38, now $26

Key ingredients: salicylic acid, plus tranexamic acid, sake extract, and aloe vera.

What makes Press & Clear a standout exfoliator is its powerful combination of beta-hydroxy acids (BHA) in the form of salicylic acid, plus tranexamic acid, sake extract, and aloe vera. Salicylic acid is a powerful yet effective purger that lets you say goodbye to all the dead skin cells, dirt, and bacteria clogging your pores. Another major highlight is the two-percent tranexamic acid, added for brightening and evening skin tone (it's also great for tackling pigmentation left from acne scars). This ingredient is known to "help calm the skin, reduce inflammation, and help promote the health of the skin's natural barrier," Manish Shah, MD, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Englewood, Colorado, previously told Well+Good. Meanwhile, sake extract and aloe vera keep skin soothed and hydrated.

Tl;Dr—Press & Clear is a true hero for those of us with congested, acne-prone skin. It's got the results to prove it; a clinical study showed the product to improve skin, making it look brighter and healthier in just one week, making it a must-have to snag during the Medik8 Black Friday sale.

But again, it's not the *only* deal worth shopping this weekend. Medik8’s Black Friday sale applies to the entire website—you can revamp your complete skin-care regimen for 30 percent off the regular price of all of Medik8’s items (except for travel kits, bundles, and accessories!). No code is necessary, so you’ll be good to go once you add your items. So what are you waiting for?! Get that shopping cart—and skin—ready.

More from the Medik8 Black Friday sale

medik 8 crystal retinal next to box packaging
Crystal Retinal — $37.00

Originally $54, now $37

When it comes to retinol, Medik8 is the best of the best. The brand’s Crystal Retinal line is excellent for retinoid newbies or more seasoned users, as it comes in a series of progressive strengths, from Crystal Retinal 1 (the gentlest, most sensitive-skin friendly option) to Crystal Retinal 20, which is for retinal pros. It’s won 25 different global awards for its brightening, firming, and smoothing superpowers. Best of all, it’s 30 percent off for Black Friday now through November 28.

Hyr8 B5 Intense — $50.00

Originally $72, now $50

A must for winter, this serum contains multi-weight hyaluronic acid formulated with vitamin B5 and a triple-action booster complex that has antioxidants like saskatoon berry for a much-needed hydration boost. Skin becomes plump and healthy-looking in just one day. And it stays that way, thanks to a blend of fatty acids for long-lasting moisture.

Lipid-Balance Cleansing Oil — $27.00

Originally $38, now $27

If you can’t go a day without matte lipstick and eyeliner, this is the cleanser of your dreams. It gently dissolves makeup no matter how waterproof, leaving skin clean yet replenished, thanks to nourishing moringa seed extract. It’s suitable for all skin types, too, so you won’t have to worry about drying out your skin or breaking out.

Crystal Retinal Ceramide Eye — $48.00

Originally $66, now $46

Like the Crystal Retinal serum, this eye cream has varying strength options to help customize your routine. It effectively treats crow’s feet, puffy eyes, and dark circles. And it’s ultra-gentle, too, treating the sensitive area around your eyes as delicately as possible. (While still delivering results, of course.)

R-Retinoate Ultimate Night — $190.00

Originally $272, now $190

Meet the ultimate night cream at the ultimate price. This 5-in-1 night cream contains retinyl retinoate, a Medik8-exclusive molecule eight times stronger and 11 times faster than retinol. It also has peptides, hyaluronic acid, and ceramides. The cream has been proven to dramatically reduce fine lines and wrinkles, as well as even tone and reduce dark spots in just four weeks.
