2022 is zooming by so quickly, as I can’t believe I’m already writing my February beauty faves blog post!
In this monthly faves post, I’m going to be sharing a new custom skincare prescription that has worked wonders on my skin, 2 brow products that have changed my makeup game, a dewy blush that’s perfect for the viral TikTok clean girl makeup trend, and a blemish treatment that actually works.
Keep reading for some exclusive discount codes for these star picks and to see which products have made the cut this month.

1. Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow
I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to try the iconic Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow. This definitely rivals my favourite Glossier Boy Brow.
This brow gel instantly makes your eyebrows look fuller and thicker. Although it’s volumising, it still has a very natural finish. It’s also buildable, so you can add as much product as you want for your ultimate brow.
What I love about this gel is that the formula is flexible, but still stiff enough that the product doesn’t go literally everywhere. I love how it makes my brows look, and they stay put all day. The slight tint it gives my brows is gorgeous too and pretty much identical to my natural brow colour (Shade 2).

I don’t have a bad word to say about the Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow. It’s an amazing brow product.
2. Dermatica custom prescription*
£19.99/$24.99 per month
I recently had the pleasure of getting my very own Dermatica custom prescription to treat my skin’s unique needs.
Dermatica is an online dermatology service that creates bespoke skincare prescriptions based on your skin’s needs. You send in some photos of your skin, mention what concern you’d like to target, and a dermatologist analyses your photos to design a tailored skincare prescription to achieve your goals.
You get regular check-ins to see how the formula is working for you, so it can be adjusted as necessary. This ensures the prescription truly works for you, and you alone. Your prescription is shipped to you every 28 days.
My custom prescription has been designed to treat some mild rosacea and mild acne. Even though I’ve only been using my prescription for about 2-3 weeks, I’ve already noticed a difference in my skin. It doesn’t look as red on a daily basis, and at times where my skin is prone to looking redder (if I get warm or drink caffeine usually), it doesn’t look as red.
I’m super impressed so far, and I can’t wait to see my results over the coming months. I will be sharing my results next month from using my Dermatica prescription, with before and after photos, so stay tuned for that blog post if you’re looking to get your own Dermatica prescription and want to see some genuine results.
Use my exclusive discount code SARAHDERM to get your Dermatica treatment for just £2.90 the first month and 10% off the second month. To get your own skincare prescription, click here for UK prescription and here for US prescription.

I absolutely love my dermatology prescription.
3. Ciaté London Dewy Blush*
If you’re looking for a beautiful blush that gives your skin that Insta-worthy glow, then you need to check out the Ciaté London Dewy Blush.
This dewy blush comes in a pretty range of shades – Papya is a gorgeous peach, Watermelon (pictured) is a vibrant pink, Coconut is a natural nude shade, and Pomegranate is a rich berry.
You can apply this liquid blush with your fingertips, a beauty sponge, or a brush. I personally like applying it with a brush for precise application and a seamless blend. The blush melts into the skin effortlessly for a flush of healthy, radiant colour. It gives your skin a refreshed, youthful look.
See how I used this gorgeous blush for my clean girl makeup look on Insta below:
Use my exclusive discount code ‘CONFIDENCE15‘ for 15% off Ciaté London. This would bring the Dewy Blush down from £19 to £16.15, saving you almost £3!

The Ciaté London Dewy Blush is wonderful. I’d love to try some more shades.
4. AXIS-Y Spot The Difference Blemish Treatment*
£11.80/$16 for 15ml
In my experience with blemish treatments, they tend to be ineffective and gimmicky. But the AXIS-Y Spot The Difference Blemish Treatment truly works.
This functional treatment works quickly to reduce the appearance of blemishes and dark spots. I apply this serum overnight on any blemishes I have, and by the morning they’ve significantly reduced. On a few occasions, I’ve asked myself “Where were my blemishes again?” as I literally couldn’t see them after applying the treatment.
Although this Korean blemish treatment is effective, it doesn’t dry out your skin, unlike many other treatments. It’s gentle and mildly hydrating.
Use my exclusive discount code ‘WOMANS10‘ for 10% off your next AXIS-Y shop (excluding bundles). This brings the already amazing prices down even further. But hurry, this discount code only lasts until 16th March, so grab your favourite K-beauty products for lower prices now.

I’m really pleased with the AXIS-Y Spot The Difference Blemish Treatment.
5. Benefit Cosmetics Precisely, My Brow Pencil
The final product in my February beauty faves post is the popular Benefit Cosmetics Precisely, My Brow Pencil.
This slim brow pencil has the perfect balance of being firm enough that you can create precise brow hairs, but soft enough that the lines don’t look like you’re drawing your eyebrows on with a Sharpie.
I love the shade I have, as it’s very natural, without leaning too warm or too dark. A lot of the brow pencils I’ve tried before can look too orange for my brows, but this one is perfect (Shade 2.5).
Precisely, My Brow Pencil allows my brows to look sharper and neater, with great lasting power too. I don’t notice any fading with this product, even after wearing it for 12 hours.
Rating: 5 stars
Benefit Cosmetics Precisely, My Brow Pencil is one of the best brow pencils – if not the best brow pencil – I’ve ever used.
Final thoughts on my February beauty faves
And that’s my February 2022 beauty faves blog post wrapped up! I hope you enjoyed reading this post.
If I could only recommend one product to you from this list, it would have to be the Dermatica custom prescription. This dermatology prescription is truly game-changing, and it’s not something you can buy over the counter, so it’s well worth checking out. If you’ve got any skin concerns, Dermatica is the place to go.
