Way too much excitement for me at once!
The Sephora Spring Savings sale (use code SAVESPRING) is always a great time for me to stock up on my daily skincare products. I have my list ready for this morning and I’ll be adding a few makeup items too.
I’ll share what I buy in another post but for now, I’ve rounded up my top skincare and makeup picks to shop during this spring’s Sephora Spring Savings Event!
I’ve gone in-depth on skincare so frequently that I don’t want to overload this post with my recommendations.
Sunscreen for everyday under makeup: Biossance SPF 30. Seriously, this sunscreen is now my favorite when looking for an everyday SPF 30. While I wouldn’t use it for the beach (I need SPF 50), this sunscreen from Biossance is so hydrating and moisturizing, that you can’t believe it’s sunscreen. While I wear it over moisturizer, you can wear it as a moisturizer. I guess it depends upon your skin type.
Makeup Remover: Drunk Elephant Micellar Water. It literally removes your makeup in one try and does not irritate my eyes at all. I’m super sensitive so even the most “gentle” of removers will burn – not this one!
Gentle Face Cleanser: First Aid Beauty Pure Skin Face Cleanser
Bar Soap/Exfoliating Bar: Drunk Elephant Baby Bar Travel Duo with Case
Hydration Mask: I fell in love this winter with Youth To The People Hydrate & Glow Superberry Mask I highly recommend it!
Best At-Home Facial Mask: Drunk Elephant Sukari Babyfacial AHA + BHA Mask
Lip Masks: I talk about lip masks often but really, once you try one, you can’t NOT use a lip mask every night. The Kissu Lip Mask is life-changing for your lips. Also worth trying is Ilia Lip Wrap.I really see results from both lip mask products.
As I’ve mentioned in the past, I wear a lot of makeup from Glossier but I do still shop for makeup at Sephora so here are my recommendations!
The Ilia True Skin Serum Foundation is a nice, clean foundation that won’t irritate your skin but goes on nicely with medium coverage.
If you want a clean foundation with light/medium coverage and an SPF, try the cult-favorite Ilia Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40.
Also, consider trying the new foundation with SPF 25 from Kosas.I know I’m buying it during the sale!
My favorite Makeup Primer: Tatcha Silk Canvas
Favorite Concealer: Kosas Revealer Concealer
Excellent Setting Powder: Tatcha The Silk Powder Protective Setting Powder
Best Powder Blush: Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Blush
Bronzer/Highlighter Duo: Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow
Also, I want this Ilia Multi-Stick Cheek and Lip
Favorite Eye Shadow: Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Eyeshadow Palette. While it’s not a “clean” makeup product, I do wear it when I really want to do my eyes up. The colors are so pretty and look so nice. The pigment goes on and stays on so well.
Favorite Eye Liner: Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Eye Liner
Favorite Lash Primer: Milk Lash Primer
Really Nice Eyebrow Pencil: Kosas Brow Pop
Lip Liner: Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Liner
Need Lip Gloss? Try a Kosa Wet Lip Oil Gloss. I also love the Forget the Filler Lip Plumper Line Smoothing Gloss from Lawless.
Oh, and this Balmy Tint Hydrating Lip Balm from Ilia is on my list.
Also, try Briogeo Don’t Detox & Repair Set before buying the full sizes – I think you will love the Briogeo products but the mini sets give you a chance to try before spending full price.
Stoney Clover X Target
As far as Stoney Clover’s collaboration with Target which launches in-store and online tomorrow, I don’t even have words for this situation. I am pretty sure the collection will sell out online before I even wake up but I do plan to check everything that I’ve already “hearted” in my Target account to see what I can order. And then, I will go to the Target stores in my area first thing in the morning.
