The Sephora sale (using code, OMGSPRING at checkout both in stores and online) is such a good time to save money and stock up on skincare, sunscreen, and any makeup you might need.
Since this is not a sale to be missed, I typically go through my skincare first (including sunscreen) to determine what is close to running low in order to save money on my skincare staples. Then I check my makeup to see what I will need to replace soon as well as anything new that I could use.
I put together my recommendations for what you should grab from the Sephora Sale based upon what I like plus what I will be adding to my cart too.
Let’s get started with sunscreens first.
Now is an excellent time to ensure you have your sunscreen products set for the summer.
In my recent Drunk Elephant Skincare post, I shared that I love the Umbra Sheer™ Physical Daily Defense SPF 30. While in the summer I do like a higher SPF on my face, I still recommend this sunscreen. It’s great year-round, under makeup, and also really good for running first thing in the morning. For me though, I wear a higher SPF sunscreen to the beach or when sitting at the pool because I have fair skin.
I also have this Ilia Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 Foundation which doubles as your lightweight foundation and sunscreen in one. This is great for the daytime with or without added makeup.
I ALWAYS come back to Dior Dreamskin Fresh & Perfect Cushion Broad Spectrum SPF 50. This is without a doubt a fabulous skincare/makeup/SPF product. I buy the refill every year. While it’s technically not labeled a clean skincare product, it is free of sulfates SLS and SLES, parabens, formaldehyde, formaldehyde-releasing agents, phthalates, mineral oil, retinyl palmitate, coal tar, hydroquinone, triclosan, and triclocarban which is a TOTAL PLUS.
I also like this Supergoop Shimmershade Illuminating Cream Eyeshadow SPF 30.It’s an eye shadow that doubles as sunscreen for the eyelid too. I have it and really like to use it in the summer.
I already went in-depth on skincare recently so I won’t overload this post with my recommendations.
I do want to try the new Protini™ Powerpeptide Resurfacing Serum from Drunk Elephant. I’m hearing great reviews on this serum which can be used AM and/or PM.
I’ve had this body lotion from Necessaire on my list to try for a while based upon hearing great things about it. I do really like the body lotion from Drunk Elephant though so it’s really a toss-up in terms of which to recommend.
So I use a lot of makeup from Glossier which makes it a little hard to give you honest recommendations from Sephora. BUT! I do have a few to share!
Best blush: Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Blush
My favorite make primer: Tatcha Silk Canvas
Best eye shadow palettes if you have sensitive eyes but still want to wear eye shadow in a variety of shades that apply well and stay on: Tarte Power Bar Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow Palette. This palette from Tarte is really nice too- lots of colors!
Need lip gloss? Kosa Wet Lip Oil Gloss. Oh, and I want to try the Forget the Filler Lip Plumper Line Smoothing Gloss from Lawless.
Want to try the cult-favorite Pillow Talk for your lips? Go with the Charlotte Tilbury Mini Pillow Talk & Liner Set
I’m going to try this lash primer from LASHFOOD.
I keep thinking about this Scalp Revival Charcoal + Coconut Oil Mico-Exfoliating Scalp Scrub Shampoo from Briogeo. I had gotten a sample of it last year for my birthday and really loved it. While I don’t have scalp issues, this shampoo made my hair/head feel so clean and refreshed. I’m likely going to get it during this Sephora sale.
If you have any questions about what to buy from the Sephora Spring Savings sale, let me know! I’m always happy to help with beauty product recommendations!
