Call it cliché, but with a fresh year ahead, now’s the time to finally get your skin in check. Got breakouts? Superdry? No matter your mug’s main concern, the Ulta Love Your Skin sale is here to help. Allow us to explain: The beauty retailer kicked off the new year by slashing the prices of more than a dozen of your favorite prestige skin-care brands, including Mario Badescu, Murad, and even Clarisonic, in honor of its Ulta Love Your Skin sale. And to celebrate the skin clearance event, which has products priced down to 50 percent off (!), a few Allure editors are sharing which lotions, potions, and tools they can’t wait to add to their 2017 regimens, below. (Spoiler alert: You’ll want them all, too.)

“In the UK, everyone is obsessed with No. 7 skin care. All my British beauty editor friends swear by it, so I’ve been familiar with the line for years. They just launched a brand-new serum, but the Protect & Perfect ($19) is probably their best-selling anti-aging product, so if there’s any time to get yourself acquainted with the brand—now is it.” —Sophia Panych, deputy digital director

“I get those annoying under-eye creases which my concealer settles into. The Peter Thomas Roth Instant Firmx Eye Tightener ($19) somehow smoothes out every single line, making it look like I slept a full eight hours.”—Elizabeth Denton, digital editor

“I may look a little insane wearing these hydrogel Patchology FlashPatch Lip Gels, but they’re just too cute to pass up—especially for $25. They’re spiked with soothing green tea and plumping peptides, which leaves my pout feeling smooth and silky after just a few minutes of wear.”—Sarah Kinonen, digital associate beauty editor

“Strivectin is one of the most effective skin-care lines out there, which is why so many dermatologists and beauty editors love it. It’s also why the products can be so pricey. This set gives you their Advanced Intensive Concentrate for Winkles & Stretch Marks, Intense Eye Concentrate for Wrinkles, Advanced Retinol Intensive Night Moisturizer, and their Tightening Lift Advanced Neck Cream—a $129 value—for a little over 40 bucks. That’s insane.”—Sophia Panych, deputy digital director

“Whenever I’m dealing with breakouts (usually around my period), I wash with Murad Acne Clarifying Cleanser only in the affected areas. It clears up my skin in just a few days, without drying it out at all. It’s my Holy Grail of pimple-fighters.”—Elizabeth Denton, digital editor

“The Perricone MD Blue Plasma Cleansing Treatment is a cult classic among beauty editors—and for good reason: It removes makeup without stripping the skin while it also de-gunks oil and dirt out of clogged pores. Basically, it’s a cleanser and toner, all-in-one. And since I’m practically out of my own jar at home, I plan on replenishing my stash with one of these for $22.50.”—Sarah Kinonen, digital associate beauty editor
