I don’t know about you, but it’s been WAY too cold for me the past two days to leave the house. Which leads to me being on my computer all day, which leads to shopping! Luckily, Sephora is having their VERY rare sale this weekend, and I’ve already taken advantage. Now if you’ve ever shopped at Sephora you probably know that they are hella stingy and exclusive with their sales. They rarely come around and when they do, the best stuff is usually limited only to the VIB Rouge folks, which clearly don’t need a sale because they have enough money to spend a grand at Sephora in the first place! I digress. If you’re wondering what to buy from the sephora sale, here’s a roundup of a few hair, skin, makeup, and gifts that are my current favorites and recent buys!
What to Buy From the Sephora Sale: HAIR
You’re likely protective styling or doing less to your hair during the winter, so there’s no better time to jumpstart your hair growth with some hair vitamins. I’ve been trying a whole lot of different products recently, and this exfoliating mud shampoo is a super strong cleanser without stripping my hair of essential moisture. We keep this castor oil on our nightstands – Jonathan uses it on his hair and beard, and I’ve started to apply it to my eyelashes and edges before bed. If you’re looking for a splurge, upgrade your sleep life with a silk pillowcase that promises to protect not only your hair but your skin as well. Double win.
What to Buy From the Sephora Sale: Skin & Body
Sometimes I don’t feel like doing a whole mask, but I want a quick skin refresh. This 2 minute exfoliating treatment smooths out my skin, resurfacing it to be baby soft in just two minutes. I’ve had my Foreo Luna mini 2 for a bit under a year now and it has easily been the best product I’ve bought for my face – gentle daily exfoliating without any need to change brushes. I got this serum in a pr mailing and I just purchased another bottle; it has a high concentration of retinol without being harsh on the skin. I’ve already sung infinite praises about this shea butter cream, but if you’re not yet with the program, this is easily the most rich and emollient cream I’ve ever put on my body.
What to Buy From the Sephora Sale: Makeup
So as of yesterday when I made my Sephora sale purchase, I managed to score my Fenty Pro Filt’r shade (390) online at the sale price! I’d gotten a sample a few weeks ago and it really is as smooth and gorgeous as everyone has says. I love almost every palette that Becca comes out with, but the blushed copper bronzer in this one is the BEST color I’ve ever put on my brown face. It just makes me naturally glow so much I stay having folks think I’m pregnant. I finally got a mini version of Laura Mercier’s translucent powder for on the go touch ups and now I’ve got my eyes on the deep shade. Lastly, I picked up an eyeshadow palette that everybody and their momma talks about, even though I still don’t know how to do eyeshadow.
What to Buy From the Sephora Sale: Gifts
It’s not too early to start thinking about holiday gifts, and the Sephora sale is the perfect opportunity to save before things get crazy. No one can say no to pretty makeup brushes, and unlike some other sets, this one is actually practical. For the guys, this lip balm and skin care set *might* actually convince your man to actually care about his face (or is that just mine?) I actually have the lip balm and can testify to it’s working powers! Candles are a popular holiday gift, but rather than getting a seasonal scent that might wear off, get a classic set in neutral colors that will be appreciated throughout the whole year. And if you’re looking for a fragrance for yourself or a special someone, the packaging on Marc Jacobs’ Decadence is so pretty! It also smells rich and delectable, which is why it was my wedding fragrance!
