I love shopping the Sephora sale – it’s the best time to either try something new that I’ve been holding out on or stock up on my faves! Here are my recs of things to try – if you haven’t already!
Tatcha – The Silk Canvas Protective Primer // Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation // Olaplex Hair Perfector No. 3 // Supergoop Poof 100% Part Powder SPF 45 // Caudalie Beauty Elixir // Laneige Lip Mask // Anastasia Brow Wiz // Beautyblender Pro // Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Oil // Summer Fridays Overtime Mask // Sunday Riley C.E.O. Vitamin C Rich // Supergoop Defense Refresh Setting Spray w SPF 50 // Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber De_Tox Hydra Gel Eye Patches // Shiseido Facial Cotton // Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask
1 // Tatcha – The Silk Canvas Protective Primer – People have been raving about this online, and a blogger I love – Lauren Kay Sims – tried this recently and I loved how it made her skin look! So I figured I had to try it. It has the “clean” seal from Sephora too so that’s a bonus. I cannot wait for this to arrive.
2 // Giorgia Armani Luminous Silk Foundation – Okay…be prepared to fall in love and never go back to your old foundation. This one has a price tag that isn’t fun to fork over, but man…there is just nothing out there quite like this silky foundation. It’s AHHHHMAZING!!! I love the way my skin looks with this on! It’s lightweight, blends oh so nicley, yet gives some great coverage and literally looks like skin. This is my go-to for special occasions, night outs, wedding makeup, etc. I love it!
3 // Olaplex Hair Perfector No. 3 – My hairdresser recommended this stuff and I’m SUPER excited to try it – I bought it with the sale so I’ve never tried it before, but seen amazing results with it. I cannot wait – I heard it’s literally the best stuff ever for your hair. So I highly recommend buying at the sale price to try it out like I did!
4 // Supergoop Poof 100% Mineral Part Powder – Who else always has a hard time getting sunscreen into your hair/scalp? And your kids too? I always rub it in, but it’s not easy. My daughter doesn’t like wearing a hat so I’m always using the BeautyCounter stick sunscreen on her scalp – and it doesn’t go on smooth, gets chunks in her hair, etc. etc….so I’m very excited about this powder sunscreen made specifically for your scalp! I have a feeling I’ll love it.
5 // Caudalie Beauty Elixir – This was a splurge because of the sale item for me – I’ve read rave reviews about this and it basically has a cult following. You can use this to hydrate the skin, set your makeup, tighten pores and provides that instant dewy look. I’m worried I’m going to get addicted to this stuff! haha
6 // Laneige Lip Mask – Perfect time to stock up on this stuff. I can’t go without it – it’s a must. And if you’ve tried it, you know why. It instantly repairs and makes those lips oh so supple. I am in love with this stuff. I use it all the time – all day, every day!
7 // Anastasia Brow Wiz – I often dapple in trying new brow products, and I like a lot of different ones, but this one is the one I always go back to. I love the color taupe on myself and love the thin pencil for preciseness. Even if I don’t need one, I always add one to my cart during the sale.
8 // Beautyblender Pro – This is another item that I always need on-hand and just add it to my cart during the sale. I use this on all my shoots – and then I always keep one I use on myself too. So it’s one I like to replenish on the reg. Nothing beats the blending power of a damp beautyblender sponge!
9 // Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Oil – If your skin is sensitive to retinols you’ve tried, you should definitely give this one a try. I love what this stuff has done to my skin – it’s safe for nursing moms (which most retinols aren’t) so that’s awesome – and it has so many good ingredients – perfect for that nightime skin routine so your skin soaks it in all night long. This one is another splurge item, so great to try at the sale price!
10 // Summer Fridays Overtime Mask – Need some summer exfoliation? This super gentle, vitamin packed mask is so great for sloughing off some dead skin. I pretty much love anything Summer Fridays has come out with – and this one doesn’t disappoint. Love it!
11 // Sunday Riley C.E.O. Vitamin C Rich Cream – This is highly recommended for use with the SR Luna Sleeping Oil – since Vitamin C and Retinol are the best ways to prevent the signs of aging on the skin. I’ve been feeling like my skin needs some extra hydration too so I am giving this one a whirl. The reviews are awesome – so I hope it doesn’t disappoint! I’ll let you know!
12 // Supergoop Defense Refresh setting Mist with SPF 50 – A setting spray that has an SPF – genius! I am SO excited to try this stuff, I bought the little size for now. I feel like this will be awesome for those times you need to reapply sunscreen but don’t want to because you have makeup on!
13 // Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber De_Tox Hydra Gel Eye Patches – Love, love, love these! They are SO refreshing, hydrating and wake my tired eyes up in the best way! I always feel better after a few minutes with these eye patches on.
14 // Shiseido Facial Cotton – You guys, if you haven’t tried these instead of the typical cotton rounds, you have to give it a shot! These are UBER soft!!! They literally get 5 stars on the sephora website – which is so rare. They don’t pull at the skin, don’t leave residue, and don’t absorb product like regular ol’ cotton does. Once you try these, you won’t go back! I’m obsessed! Perfect time to try them during the sale!
15 // Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask – I can’t recommend this stuff enough, I love that it’s super hydrating and gives me a glossy look all in one. I keep this one on my at all times. It’s not sticky. My only is complaint is that I use my finger to blend it once it’s on my lips and then have to wipe it off my finger – usually with a baby wipe because that’s what I have handy. But the benefits are awesome – I love that I don’t need to carry & apply a balm and a gloss – it combines those two things and I love it. My lips are always so dry!
Happy sale shopping!
