If you’re into makeup and skincare, you know about Sephora and likely a Beauty Insider; which means you have access to their Spring sale. If you are not a Beauty Insider and are into makeup/skincare; sign up now! It’s free and you get two big sale events a year where the discount applies on everything!
Skincare and makeup rarely go on sale- it’s usually only when a certain item is being discontinued or a makeup shade/color is seasonal; so when this sale comes on, I make sure to stock up on my skincare. And Sephora really lets you take this discount off EVERYTHING they carry! This is how I got my Dyson Airwrap last year. It’s big savings!
I will briefly note, these are not ideal times for most of us. Many of us have lost jobs, and/or there is a lot of financial uncertainty. Don’t feel obligated in any way to shop any of the sales going on. Or to buy/try any products I’m suggesting if they do not fit into your budget.
Also, as a disclaimer, I get no benefit whether monetary or otherwise if you purchase from links below. These are truly staples on my skincare routine.
So, my picks! Click on any of the images to shop!
I’ll switch over and talk about brands.
I found Biossance almost two years ago as I was looking for clean beauty skincare. I did quite a bit of research and read a ton of customer reviews and tried a few of their products. I loved them and still do! The line is noncomedogenic, which is a must for me with my acne prone skin. They have clean ingredients and use 100% plant derived Squalane. Overall this is a great, clean brand that is better for you and better for the planet and just announced they are officially carbon neutral!
And aside from all this; their products really work! My skin loves them!
I’m currently using several Biossance products, but here are my musts from Biossance:
Tatcha has a bit of a higher price point which had kept me away from the brand a bit. Tatcha is also a clean beauty brand that adhere’s to Japan’s Safety and Purity standard which is one of the biggest in the world. And they are an amazing company at giving back; every purchase supports students around the world.
So, when Sephora had some trial sizes available for rewards, I was excited to finally try the brand. I’m currently only using these, but I have a feeling that the more Tatcha I try, the more they will become a must have.
I have to admit I was a bit hesitant of trying this brand because it had a lot of celebrity buzz so I was skeptical as to whether it actually worked or they simply had a lot of marketing behind it. My friend got a sample size, she tried it and didn’t like it so gave it to me to try. It sat in my skincare drawer for months before I tried it until my favorite beauty blogger Andreea Ali mentioned she used this as an eye mask because it was so nourishing. I tried it and changed my life, haha.
MAKE UP ESSENTIALS
And there you have it! Sephora obviously has a ton you can shop for, but wanted to keep it to those items that I consider necessities in my skincare regimen. If I had to pick just two products, they’d be Tatcha Water Cream and Biossance Squalane Marine Algae Eye Cream because they can be used day and night and work amazing!
Let me know what you use & what you try!
