THEFACESHOP: Top 5 beauty buys and a store-wide discount

THEFACESHOP

Good news: The government shutdown has been... un-shutdown. Even better news: You no longer have to worry about going into debt on your beauty buys.

That's because we managed to negotiate an exclusive deal just for you. Flash this email at any of THEFACESHOP's three Oahu locations between now and October 31 and they'll take 20 percent off your entire purchase.

Don't think you need an emergency beauty infusion? Think again. THEFACESHOP is packed with top-notch yet totally affordable skin, hair and makeup products. Here, our top five picks for gorgeous skin.

THEFACESHOP

1. Flebote White Crystal
The light, creamy formula of this popular skincare line targets both dark spots and wrinkles with white pine, a natural skin brightener, and saffron, to activate skin's metabolism and protect it from free radicals. Our pick: Effect Essence, a powerful serum packed with mulberry tree extract to stop skin pigmentation that can be used morning and night. $41.

2. CC Cream
Color control creams are all the rage now and for good reason, since they offer natural-looking coverage, a variety of skincare benefits and plenty of sun protection. Our pick: Smart Capsule, a white cream with SPF 40 that changes color when smoothed onto skin. Tip: mix a pea-sized amount into regular foundation for a flawless finish. $37.

3. Rice Water Bright
Little known fact: Asian cultures have been using rice water as skincare for centuries. Technology boosts this antioxidant-rich skincare line with natural anti-inflammatory and skin-protecting properties for a soft, dewy complexion. Our pick: Cleansing Light Oil, a gentle oil that cuts through even the most long-wearing, waterproof makeup, sunscreen and mascara. $15.

4. BB Cream
Like CC creams, beauty or blemish balms are known multi-taskers. So what's the difference? Turns out, CC creams have more refined skincare properties while BB creams offer a wider variety of targeted coverage (there are nine of them!). Our pick: Smart Digital, a collagen-packed cream that comes with a vibrating applicator to massage an even layer onto skin. Bonus: use the applicator to apply your favorite foundation. $49 for cream and applicator.

5. Real Nature Mask Sheets
These masks are like mini spa treatments - leave one on for 15 minutes then massage the remainder into skin. Choose from 15 types, like Kelp to detoxify inflamed or sensitive skin, Mung Bean for oily or blackhead-prone skin and Aloe for sunburns. Our pick: Pomegranate, rich in Vitamin B and minerals, leaves skin plump and radiant. $2 each.
