Sephora VIB Sale - Skincare
It's the second most wonderful time of the year, the bi-annual Sephora VIB sale! If you are a frequent shopper at Sephora you know nothing ever goes on sale except during this sale. Beauty Insiders get 10% off, VIB Members get 15% off, and Rouge members get 15% off from April 13th-16th (Rouge Members) and April 20th-26th (Beauty Insider, VIB, and Rouge). If you are in the market to replenish your stock, buy some splurge worthy products, or want to try something new, now is the perfect time to do it. I definitely will be making a purchase during the sale and I have ten skincare items I think you should add into your cart. I included all time favorites, splurges, and some new finds I'm curious about.
You know how big an advocate I am for wearing sunscreen everyday! Sun is the ultimate enemy when it comes to skincare, and you need to take precaution now before it's too late. I've told you this before, but I have been using Supergoop!'s SPF 50 sunscreen everyday and I'm curious to try out their new Unseen sunscreen. It goes on clear and acts as a primer under makeup! This is one of the only clear sunscreens on the market that is SPF 40. If you're looking for a sunscreen that won't leave you oily or white, this is the perfect option.
This is my favorite exfoliating sheet mask ever! I pick one up every time I go to Sephora because I not only love the results but it's also only $6! This mask starts with a cotton swab soaked in a solution that exfoliates the skin and then you add the sheet mask on top to lock in mega hydration. I'm going to be adding a few of these to my cart this weekend and you definitely should too.
This is a new product to Sephora and I have been dying to try it out! It has amazing reviews and it's blush pink, so that means I need it ASAP. This mask boasts that it is a facial in a jar! The watermelon and hyaluronic acid work together to boost radiance and hydration, leaving your skin plump and bright when your alarm goes off in the morning. If this mask will make me look less like a zombie when I wake up, I'll buy it forever.
Seriously, Shiseido should just sponsor me because I will forever recommend this product to anyone that will let me talk their ear off about skincare. I have seen such amazing results in the evenness of my skin, the texture, and moisture level. If you've been on the fence about this product due to the price, now is the time to take the plunge!! You will not be sorry. (Tip: You only need one pump (about a pea size) amount morning and night, so the bottle will last you at least 4 months, I promise!)
I already read an entire post about this mask that you can read here. If you have yet to pick one up yourself, take advantage of this sale to grab it before it inevitably sells out again.
I'm not usually loyal to a face wash due to my normal complexion that doesn't seem to mind my rotating skincare routine, but if I had to choose just one cleanser for the rest of my life, it would be this one. Its creamy and gentle for all skin types, doesn't stripe the skin too much but leaves your face feeling squeaky clean. I know tons of people who love this cleanser and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a new one.
This product is one of, if not THE most cult favorite skincare product on the market. People equate this essence's results to magic! Often called Youth in a Bottle, SK-II's facial essence promises to hydrate, brighten, and reveal age defying results. Coming at you for over $100 per bottle, the VIB sale is the perfect time to make a wallet conscious splurge.
I have always wanted to try this product out. It came to internet fame after Kim Kardashian revealed she used it to make her skin look dewy and radiant pre and post makeup. If you have oily skin I wouldn't recommend this product as it has twenty oils infused inside and might leave oily skin looking more sweaty than glowy. If you have dry skin though and find that makeup often looks flakey during the day, this might be your mid-day makeup saver!
I got a sample of this with a previous Sephora order and I am obsessed! This sleeping mask leaves the lips super soft and supple by morning and bonus...tastes like candy! It has a soft pink hue that I love to wear even during the day as a pretty natural gloss. I'll definitely be picking up a full size once my sample runs out.
Last, but certainly not least on my list is the Foreo Luna Mini 2. A year and a half ago I purchased a Clairisonic to see what all the fuss was about. Well, I might be in the minority here, but I hated it. The brush heads are expensive, the brush itself is huge, and you have to charge it quite frequently. Looking for a better cleansing brush I found the Foreo Luna Mini 2. I first loved how small it was, which made it travel and bathroom storage friendly, the silicone made it virtually germ free, and one charge can last up to 6 months (seriously I've only charged mine twice in the year I've had it!). It comes with different size and length bristles around the brush to target different pore areas, which means you don't need any other brush head or device to target certain areas! I love how soft and smooth it leaves my face and recommend it to anyone not wowed by a Clarisonic.
I hope you guys are as excited as I am about the sale! Make sure you are a Beauty Insider at Sephora (it's free) to qualify for the 10% off! I'll be posting two more guides on Saturday and Sunday featuring my top ten makeup and hair products I'd buy during the sale. Happy Friday and happy shopping!
