I love when Sephora has their VIB & Beauty Insider sales. This is the perfect opportunity to stock up on your favorites. For some reason, I have literally ran out of most of my products at the same time. I love a good bargain — especially when it comes to beauty products. Sephora only does these exclusive member sales a couple of times a year, so jump on it when you can.
What are the details?
- Rouge members: 20% off (4-17/5/1)
- VIB: 15% off (4/21-4/29)
- Insider: 10% off (4/23-4/27)
If you’re not a beauty insider, you can sign up and take advantage of the 10% off and other benefits such as 1 point per dollar, birthday gifts, beauty services, and free classes!
I’m going to break this down in to four sections — Hair, makeup, skincare, and fragrance. These are products that I have personally tried as well as what’s on my shopping list.
Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask
This sale couldn’t have come at a better time because it’s time for me to restock. If I had to recommend one skincare product, this will always come up. Not only do I love it because it’s hydrating AF, but it’s a multi use product. It can be used as an overnight mask, moisturizer, primer, and eye mask. I love it! I also have been seeing people use it as a hand cream due to all of the hand washing were doing these days. Highly recommend!
The Inkey List Niacinamide
I have recently found out about this brand at the beginning of the year and it’s so comparable to The Ordinary. I love that more brands are coming out with high quality products at an affordable price point. My skin loves niacinamide and it really helps when my skin is having those pesky “stress” breakouts. It also has 1% hyaluronic acid which helps to hydrate and plump up the skin. It’s less than $7 and it’s a Clean at Sephora brand!
Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Cleansing Gel
Ever since I have been introduced to this cleanser, I have never turned back. Gel cleansers work wonders on my skin and I love how gentle this is. A little bit goes a long way and this has really helped to control my cystic acne.
Summer Fridays Vanilla Butter Balm
I always get pretty excited over new Summer Friday’s releases. When I saw that they were launching a lip balm, I was super excited. I wanted to wait until I heard more reviews or a sale to come up to try, and this is the perfect time.
Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate
Ever since I tried this, I cannot go to bed without it! I have been using it every night and have noticed a huge difference in my skin. I like to apply, then use my gua sha to allow it to soak into my skin. My face looks healthier and smoother!
Supergoop Everyday SPF
I have had my ups and downs with finding the right sunscreen for me and I have been loving this one! It doesn’t leave a white cast and it’s a perfect base for my makeup.
Clinique Take the Day off Cleansing Balm
If you guys have been following me for the past couple of years, then you will know how much I love this product! I did a partnership with them last Fall and it’s one of my go to makeup removers!
Fresh Kombucha Facial Essence
This product has been on my list for sometime now but the price point is a little steep. Now that there is a sale, I will possibly try it. I have heard so many great things about this product and I just need to go ahead and pull the trigger.
Summer Fridays CC Me Serum
I love a good vitamin c serum and I’m always looking to try different brands. This has been in my cart for a while now and I think it’s time to pull the trigger.
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer
When I’m not in the mood for a heavy foundation or an everyday makeup look, I love this tinted moisturizer. As a woman of color, it’s hard to find a really good tinted moisturizer and this has been my go to.
Ilia Super Serum Skin Tint
As an easy beauty lover, I like to use products that will cover but not full coverage. I have been wanting to try Ilia for some time now and they have recently launched the Super Serum Skin Tint. The reviews are great and I think this will be the perfect everyday complexion product!
Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer
My all time favorite concealer! A little bit goes a long way and it’s easy to blend. I love that it comes in so many different shades! I use one to highlight and another shade to contour.
Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb
Can you guys believe that I haven’t tried anything from Fenty Beauty? I know, I can’t believe it either. Since the launch of the brand, gloss bomb now has six shades. The reviews are amazing and every shade I have seen looks great on every skin tone.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz
This is the ONLY brow product I will use. I have tried others from high end to drug store and I always end up going back to ABH.
Kevin Aucoin The Sensual Skin Enhancer
A little bit of a splurge, but I have had it in my cart for a long time! The reviews are great!
Kevin Aucoin Glass Glow Liquid Highlighter
On last weeks Friday Favorites, I shared this in my Easy Beauty Edit. I love the finish and the natural glow it gives. Sometimes, I just apply this to bare skin and it looks beautiful.
My love for Virtue is real! I have been using their products consistently for the past eight months or so and I love the results every single time. They have launched at Sephora which makes it accessible for you guys to try out!! Check out my favorites.
Maison Margiela Replica – Beach Walk
This is my go to summer fragrance! It honestly smells like a vacation. Fresh florals aren’t my favorite scents but this one goes so well with my body chemistry. Absolute favorite!
Tom Ford Santal Blush
Tom Ford fragrances are a splurge but they are so worth it!! Worth every penny in my opinion. My usual TF fragrance is Noir de Noir but I wanted to branch out. I have been wearing this for the past few months and I’m always getting compliments at work. Woodsy & spicy scents are my favorite and it has a sensual smell to it. I love it!
Whew! This is a long post, but I wanted to share my favorites as well as what’s on my wish list. Are you shopping the spring sale? If so, what’s on your list? Let’s chat in the comments!
