Hate to interrupt your Thanksgiving weekend, but if you could off on that post-leftovers nap a little bit longer, we have a very important PSA we think you'll want to hear. Three Ships is throwing a massive Black Friday sale with buy-one-get-one deals on its entire line of derm-approved skin care. Told you it was an announcement worth the interruption.

The plant-based skin-care brand is beloved by dermatologists (and us) for its gentle but powerful serums, cleansers, creams, eye gels, and more. The more we think about it, we don't think there's a single Three Ships product that doesn't have a derm's sign-off—they're really that good. Not to mention, they're all natural, all science-backed, and all affordably priced, too.

Three Ships is giving us even more reason to swoon over the brand with a BOGO Black Friday event that's too good to pass up. Now through November 28, you'll get a free product for every one you buy (excluding kits and bundles, unfortunately). Whether you need a brightening toner to slough away dead skin, a dreamy serum to quench a thirsty face, or eye patches that fake eight hours of sleep, it's all BOGO. All you have to do is click "Add to cart."

Need help deciding? Below we've rounded up some of our (and derms') favorite Three Ships goodies worth doubling down on while you can. Scroll to shop below, then carry on with your Thanksgiving weekend plans—the entire Hallmark channel awaits.

TK derm-approved deals to double down on now

Three Ships Dream Bio-Retinol + Shorea Butter Night Cream
Dream Bio-Retinol + Shorea Butter Night Cream — $35.00

Key ingredients: Bio-retinol, squalane, and shorea butter.

True to its name, this night cream is a dream for reinvigorating tired skin while you get your beauty sleep. As board-certified dermatologist Jeannette Graf, MD, previously told us, Three Ships Dream Cream is powered by a retin-alt (a plant-based retinol) that works its magic overnight.

“As we age and develop fine lines, it is key to use retinol as well as keep the skin moisturized,” she said. “This smooth night cream is ideal for nightly use to keep the skin hydrated and encourage skin cell turnover. Retinol is a product that everyone should include in their skin-care routine.” Get two for the price of one right now.

Skin Hero Bakuchiol + Calendula Bio-Retinol Serum — $35.00

Key ingredients: Bakuchiol, calendula, and rosehip seed oil.

Backuchiol, another retin-alt, serves as the hero ingredient in this powerful serum. “Bakuchiol works as an anti-inflammatory and an antioxidant, so it’s also ideal for those who suffer from dry, sensitive skin and can’t tolerate a retinol,” New York City dermatologist Dendy Engelman, MD, previously told W+G. “Plus, the antibacterial properties of bakuchiol mean that it’s great for those with acne and oily skin.”

The added bursts of calendula and rosehip seed oil are ultra-soothing, too, making this super serum a true hero no beauty routine should go without.



Superfruit Lactic + Multifruit 8% AHA Exfoliating Mask — $25.00

Key ingredients: Lactic acid, Fruit AHA, and rice powder.

This Superfruit mask is loaded with some seriously superb fruity acids that make it so effective. “The concentration of AHA in this product is high and will improve skin texture, dullness, and target congested pores,” says Sandy Skotnicki, MD, Three Ships’ partner dermatologist. While other exfoliating masks take 15-20 minutes to give skin a glow-up, this one works in 5 minutes flat. And if it feels a little tingly, fear not—that’s just the actives doing their job.


Radiance Grape Stem Cell + Squalane Day Cream — $35.00

Key ingredients: Grape stem cell extract, squalane, and bark extract blend.

This mega-moisturizer is so beloved, it’s sold out three times already. That’s because it’s loaded with a special ingredient that can actually reverse signs of aging: Grape stem cell extract. Rachel Nazarian, MD, a board-certified dermatologist based in New York, previously explained that this potent antioxidant actually turns back time in the skin while protecting it from future damage. There’s also squalane and bark extract for all-day hydration.

Dew Drops Mushroom Hyaluronic Acid + Vitamin C Serum copy
Dew Drops Mushroom Hyaluronic Acid + Vitamin C Serum — $38.00

Key ingredients: Tremella mushroom, kakadu plum, and red algae extract.

Dew Drops is another brand best-seller that’s known for its instant brightening burst of goodness. It’s so popular, it’s sold out seven times already—you might as well get two while you still can.

Each bottle is formulated with plant-based hyaluronic acid and red algae extract for double the moisture, while kakadu plum (which is famous for having 100 times more vitamin C than oranges) brightens skin, fades dark spots, and tones unevenness. We’ll take two, thanks.

detox clay mask, three ships
Detox Green Tea Antioxidant Clay Mask — $17.00

Key ingredients: French green clay, kaolin clay, and green tea extract.

Dr. Nazarian was also impressed by this purifying mask that deeply cleans dirty, oily skin without stripping it dry. “[French green clay] has been found to be quite antibacterial in nature, offering some potential benefit not only in cleansing the skin, but also for potentially improving skin condition such as acne, which have influence by the bacteria on our skin,” she said. “Topical green tea can be used to calm inflamed skin, and is great for all skin types, typically even the very sensitive.” Use it 1-2 times a week to get your face squeaky clean and see what all the fuss is about.
