The Sephora Spring Bonus Sale is here! This is one of my favorite sales to cover since it gives me the chance to share the skincare and beauty products that have transformed my skin, in hopes that you’ll find something that brings your skin joy. If you’ve been a reader for a while, you might remember my sale guide from last spring and last summer. This time around, I wanted to share my holy grail products – products I’ve been using for years and still use daily.

I’ve tried a good share of cleansers, and this cleansing milk and this brightening cleanser are my favorites. I use them interchangeably depending on what my skin needs. As for toners and serums, I haven’t found many I’d repurchase, except for this Vitamin C serum (which you might have read about here). My love for facial oils runs deep, but I’m super picky about them. This one and this one are my favorites – light yet luxurious. As for moisturizers – I’ve tried A TON. I use this rosewater moisturizer as my night time cream. It can be for AM as well, but I personally don’t like thick creams during the day. After a night of using this luxurious cream, I always wake up with plump and dewy skin. As for daytime moisturizers, I love this one and this one. Both are lightweight and provide long time moisture. I haven’t tried as many eye creams as I have moisturizers, but this eye cream is my favorite so far. It’s super hydrating and does a good job of blurring my fine lines.
treatments + masks
Above are my favorite treatments and masks available at Sephora. You NEED this peeling gel! Seeing my dead skin roll off my face is the most satisfying thing ever. Another exfoliator I’d recommend is this one. Both have similar benefits of fresh, baby soft skin. For acne and a glowing complexion, I like using these corrections pads. This charcoal treatment mask also works well for acne, and I also love that it shrinks and cleans out my pores. The charcoal mask can be a bit harsh and drying for sensitive skin, so this acne mask is another just as effective option. After using an exfoliating and clearing masks, I always follow up with this sleeping mask. If my skin is irritated or stressed, I reach for this rescue mask. And every night before bed, I lather my lips with this lip sleeping mask for softer lips. Similar with eye moisturizers, I haven’t tried a ton of eye masks, but these eye patches are my favorite so far. They’re packed with hyaluronic acid, meaning they provide bursts of hydration, and diminish my fine lines.
sun protection + makeup
After my skincare routine, I always try to put on Supergoop’s Unseen Sunscreen. If I’m feeling fancy, I’ll go for their Matte Screen. The rest of the products linked are the makeup products I reach for almost every time I do my simple makeup routine. I recently got sent Ole Henriksen’s Banana Bright Face Primer to try and I can’t get enough of it! I’ve been just using that lately instead of my usual tinted moisturizer.
These are the products I reach for to get healthier, shinier hair. After months of using this hair dryer, I can say that it has helped improve the quality of my hair. My hair is less dry and a lot shinier. Not to mention, it dries my hair super fast. I use drug store shampoo and conditioner, but I love adding an extra step of a leave-in conditioner. I’m currently using and loving this one, but would recommend this one as well. Recently, I started incorporating this anti-frizz serum into my hair routine and it’s the most effective anti-frizz product I’ve tried. If your flyaways are out of control, I’d highly recommend trying out this serum.
I always use the sale as a chance to play around with skincare products that have been at the top of my wishlist. Here are a few things I ordered to get me summer and wedding ready. Since I try to take good care of my skin, I thought I should do the same for the rest of my body with the help of this body scrub and body serum. I’m super interested to see if these body products are worth the price and will report back soon.
There you have it – my holy grail products and purchases from this year’s spring sale. I’d be happy to help if you have extra questions or are looking for something specific. Happy shopping!
