Dr. Sandra Lee, more widely known as Dr. Pimple Popper, has awed people for years with her curiously mesmerizing videos of blackhead-, cyst-, and just plain pimple-popping. But you don’t need to have a shock-worthy growth or an odd fascination with the repulsive in order to take advantage of Dr. Sandra’s services—she recently released a line of skincare products that you can now buy at Target.

The collection features seven acne-fighting products from SLMD Skincare (for Sandra Lee, M.D.) aimed at bridging the gap between the dermatologist’s office and the skincare aisle. She selected the products based on what she recommends to her patients, essentially giving you behind-the-scenes access to her honest opinion as a doctor, no appointment necessary.

The items range from a full 30-day skincare regimen to an SPF 15 daily moisturizer, with prices starting at $25. Here's what to buy:

SLMD Skincare Daily Moisturizer With SPF 15; $30

This lightweight daily moisturizer protects from UVA and UVB rays, which damage and age your skin more than you probably realize. It’s oil-free, so it won’t clog your pores like other sunscreens and SPF products.

SLMD Skincare Salicylic Acid Cleanser; $25

You can trust this gentle daily cleanser to strip away dead skin, dirt, and bacteria without causing your face to feel raw or dry. It’ll help you get rid of pesky blackheads and whiteheads, and it’ll keep your pores clear to prevent the formation of new ones.

SLMD Skincare Salicylic Acid Spot Treatment; $25

This little bottle of liquid will ensure that you never have another pre-event pimple meltdown. Just roll it on your spot and it’ll reduce redness and inflammation while clearing dirt and oil from the affected pores. You can apply it up to three times daily, but since it does dry out your skin, the directions recommend that you start with a once a day application and work your way up as needed.

SLMD Skincare Salicylic Acid Body Spray; $38

Because sometimes the worst acne isn’t on your face, Dr. Sandra Lee has developed an anti-acne body spray to fight the dirt, oil, and bacteria that builds up in hard-to-reach places—and the 360° nozzle will save you from having to practice contortion in order to spray that elusive middle-of-the-back spot.

SLMD Skincare Glycolic Acid Body Scrub; $35

Though Keratosis pilaris—the condition that causes bumpy patches of skin often on your arms or thighs—is harmless, it can get in the way of you feeling like the flawless human that you are. For that, Dr. Sandra Lee has created a body scrub with glycolic acid, which helps dissolve the keratin and dead skin that build up and cause rough, bumpy skin.

Buy it: Target

SLMD Skincare Glycolic Acid Body Lotion: $35

In addition to exfoliating, it’s really important to keep your bump-prone patches of skin moisturized. Glycolic acid not only clears away keratin buildup and dead skin cells, it also draws in water molecules. That’s where this lotion’s shea butter element comes in—to seal the water molecules in your skin and keep new bumps from forming.

Buy it: Target

SLMD Skincare Acne System Kit; $50

A four-piece SLMD skincare kit

Treat your current acne and prevent future breakouts with these four products designed to last you about a month. The kit includes a gentle salicylic acid cleanser to unclog pores and fight blackheads and whiteheads without drying out your skin, a lightweight BP (benzoyl peroxide) lotion that kills acne-forming bacteria, a hydrating facial moisturizer that won’t clog your pores, and retinol serum to shrink your pores and make your skin feel softer than ever.

Buy it: Target

Available Only on SLMD Skincare's Website (For Now): UV Bounce; $40

UV Bounce brushes
SLMD

This one isn't yet available at Target, but because “SPF” are the magic letters in skincare these days, be sure to check out Dr. Sandra Lee’s just-launched UV Bounce, an SPF 30 sunscreen powder that you brush on top of your regular makeup as a lightweight finish. The 90-day supply comes with an attached brush, and you can choose between three different powder shades. It’s also a fantastic fix for potential scalp sunburn, since we all know what a mess it makes to rub liquid sunscreen on your part.

Harry Potter Advent calendars are becoming a new Christmas tradition among wizards and witches at heart. For the 2019 holiday season, LEGO is launching an Advent calendar set of Harry Potter minifigures, and Funko is releasing its own calendar themed around the Yule Ball. Now, Bustle reports that Target is getting in on the action with four new Advent calendars packed with Harry Potter-themed socks.

No matter what type of Harry Potter fan you are, there's a batch of socks for you in Target's line-up. If you're someone who gets assigned a different house every time you take a sorting hat quiz, go with the first Advent calendar. It includes socks in men sizes 6 through 12 emblazoned with the crests and colors of all four Hogwarts houses.

The other three packs feature women's socks with a somewhat random assortment of designs. You'll find footwear branded with iconic Harry Potter imagery, like Hedwig the owl, the golden Snitch, and the Hogwarts Express. Other socks bear quotes from the books and films, like "Mischief Managed" from the Marauder's Map and Hagrid's famous one-liner, "You're a wizard, Harry."

Every Harry Potter Advent calendar from Target comes with 15 pairs of socks, working out to just $1 a pair. If you'd like to start planning the holiday season early this year, you can order them today from Target.com. And to make the holidays even more magical, don't miss out on this Hogwarts castle tree topper that plays "Hedwig's Theme."

Why settle for a torn piece of paper or receipt when you can have something way more exciting? These bookmarks are for readers who want to add some extra whimsy to their reading routine.

1. Sprouts; $12.50

These ingenious silicone markers don’t work like normal bookmarks. Shaped like adorable sprouts, they fit inside your book and mark the exact line you’re at on the page. Because they’re made with a flexible material, you can close the book easily with the sprout inside and it will spring back to shape when you open the book again. The sprouts come in sets of six. For a little luck, check out the four-leaf clover iteration.

2. Butterflies; $10


If you've ever wanted to have a real Disney princess moment, consider buying these bookmarks, which will make it look like butterflies have perched on your books. The set comes with 10 pieces in a variety of designs.

Find it: Amazon

3. Crocodile; $13

These clever placeholders create the illusion that a crocodile is lurking on top of your book. When you lift up this intimidating bookmark, it shows the reptile’s sharp teeth, warning others not to dare lose your place. (If mammals are more your style, there is also a hippo option.)

Find it: Amazon

4. Lamp; $13

Let this lamp-shaped bookmark illuminate where you left off. The lamp shape sits on top of the book while the yellow light-beam fits snuggly between the pages. It comes in three colors: white, red, and gray.

Find it: Amazon

5. Literary Feet; $24

Remember that scene in The Wizard of Oz when the house fell on the Wicked Witch of the East and only her feet stuck out? You can recreate that iconic movie scene with a bookmark. Even better, the design isn’t restricted to just the witch: You can get all kinds of famous book character feet to stick out of your book. Just some of the literary legs available include Alice from Alice in Wonderland, a direwolf from A Song of Ice and Fire, and a magician from Harry Potter. There are also some non-book selections, like animals, ballerinas, and Yoda.

Find it: Amazon

6. Food; $30

Let some of your favorite food keep your place. The plush bookmarks feature a slice of pizza, ice cream, coffee, and an ice cream sandwich.

Find it: Amazon

7. Magnetic pals; $5

You’ll be even more motivated to read if you have a small buddy smiling at you from the side of your book. You can attach them to any place on the side of the page, so you know exactly where you are in the story.

Find it: Amazon

8. Pointers; $7

These bookmarks also mark the exact place in the book, but without the help of magnets. Instead, they come with stretchy loops that wrap around the entire book. A hand pointing can pinpoint the exact word, in case you’re the type that stops reading mid-sentence. They come in packs of three.
