There have been so many great spring sales going on lately, and the dent in my wallet goes to show how much I’ve been taking advantage of them. I decided to do another sale guide since so many of you messaged me about my SHOPBOP SALE GUIDE and found it helpful, so today I am sharing my favorite beauty buys that you can get from the SEPHORA SALE. I love experimenting with skincare products and have tried tons of new products in the past few years, so it took a long time to narrow down my favorites. Continue reading to see the best of the best from my vanity.

Foreo LUNA Mini – evens out skin and leaves it feeling soft and clean. This tool does so much more than your hands can.
Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum – gives a nice radiant glow. I like to use this serum during the day and an anti-aging serum at night.
Herbivore Pink Cloud Moisturizer – gives you a super hydrated and smooth finish. It’s a little thick for my liking, but the scent and benefits are too good. I only use this at night because I prefer a lighter moisturizer for the day.
Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask – really absorbs overnight for softer lips in the morning. It was an unexpected texture for me – almost like a lip balm that has been melted. It’s the only lip mask I’ve tried, but I really like it and it’s always on my bedside table.
Clinique Moisture Surge Hydrator – keeps my face hydrated for a long time. I got this product in February and I’m almost at the end of the bottle already. I love using this gel-cream during the day because it’s super lightweight and delivers so much hydration. So affordable too! *product was received in a collaboration with Clinique.
Herbivore Rose Hibiscus Coconut Water Hydrating Face Mist – revitalizes and cools the face. This is just a fun extra step I take to add more moisture to my face in the mornings. The cool mist also helps me wake up.
La Mer Soft Cream – the perfect moisturizer. My mom bought me this once I started becoming more serious about taking care of my skin about 4 years ago. This is expensive though, and I’ve since tried many other good moisturizers, but this is the holy grail. I’m still on this skincare journey of trying out different products, but this cream is something I’d go back to later in age (aka when I can afford it more). If you’ve got the funds, this is a must buy. I like this one more than other La Mer moisturizers because this one is more lightweight.
Youth to the People Age Prevention Superfood Cream – rejuvenates and moisturizes dry skin. When I traveled to Japan last spring, my skin was extremely dry, but this cream did wonders for my dehydrated skin. It really absorbs into your skin, trapping in the moisture.
Tatcha Water Cream – hydrating and improves the look of your skin. The light texture is very similar to that of Youth to the People’s Superfood Cream. I love this one for summer because it really soaks into your skin instead of sitting on top of it.
BELIF Moisturizing Eye Bomb – moisturizes the eye area and smooths out fine lines. I’m just starting to test out eye products because I didn’t even realize I had dry eyes until I tried this product! Love this one as a starter. *product was received in a collaboration with BELIF.
Murad Acne Cleanser – clears skin of acne. This is one of the few acne products that was actually effective for me. It makes my skin a little bit dry, but nothing the moisturizers I have in rotation can’t fix.
I haven’t been to the hair salon in a while, which means dry, brittle hair. These are the products that have really helped bring life back into my hair. The IGK Prenup Spray Mask and Ouai Treatment Masque are the best hair masks I’ve tried out thus far. I use my mom’s Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer whenever I visit her and notice a visible difference in the quality of my hair. Not only does it dry your hair super fast, it leaves your hair looking and feeling healthy.
I love how innovative companies have become with their sun care products. I love this Clinique SPF 50 Sunscreen Body Cream because of its body cream texture. It’s super light, yet effective and does not leave that heavy, greasy residue. The gross residue is one of my biggest pet peeves, which is why I also love the Supergoop Sunscreen Mousse SPF 50. This mousse is so fun to put on! I also love Supergoop’s facial sun care products, Defense Refresh Setting Mist SPF 50 and Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40. The Unseen Sunscreen is a light gel that also acts as an amazing velvety primer and the Setting Mist is a makeup setting spray. *I received Supergoop’s Mousse and Unseen Sunscreen as complimentary samples.
Kate Somerville EradiKate Mask – helps clear acne and dissolve impurities. Follow with nose pore strips for maximum pore cleaning.
Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask – super hydrating and cooling. Love this especially under my eyes and the fact that I can leave it on overnight.
Fresh Rose Face Mask – soothing and restores moisture. Perfect refresher after a long, stressful day and smells so good.
Herbivore Blue Tansy AHA + BHA Resurfacing Mask – gel mask that resurfaces the skin. This is my go to whenever my skin starts feeling rough and is the closest thing to an exfoliant I have.
I like to focus more on skincare than makeup, so I really don’t buy or own that much makeup. Here are a few of the items I use every single time I do put makeup on. As I’ve gotten older, my pores have become much more visible, but THIS product has become a game changer for me. I put it on as a primer every time. When I need to take the makeup off, I love using this Boscia Sake Cleansing Makeup Remover. It’s been my favorite remover I’ve tried because it’s almost like water and there is no oil or grease.
what I bought
Okay, I know I went a little crazy with the sale, but let me let you in on a tip. For items that had size options, I opted for the smaller size and reduced price so I can try out the products. This is something I’d recommend doing because the tiny samples you request will not last long enough for you to see if you like the product or its intended effects. My bad for posting this guide a few days late, but you have tonight and tomorrow to still shop the sale. Feel free to e-mail me or message me on Instagram if you have any questions! I love hearing from you and helping you out. Happy shopping!
