Eight Picks from the Sephora Sale

Sephora’s 20% off sale has begun for Rouge members; VIBs can shop tomorrow at 15% off.  Also, all Sephora Collection products are 30% off.

I use these sales to replace my favorite products and buy items that might be a little too expensive for my budget at full price.  Here are my 10 best picks.  Leave your own must-haves in the comments.

K18 Molecular Leave-In Hair Repair. Save fried ends and make your hair impossibly smooth with this leave in conditioner.  I love it so much that I use it almost every day.  You can also use it before and after hair coloring treatments to prevent damage.

GrandeLash Eyelash Serum. I use this product on my lashes and eyebrows.  After a decade spend regrowing my eyebrows the old fashioned way (vitamins and light hair removal), this product brought back my brows in a few weeks. I’m still using it to fill in areas that are still a little sparse, but I’m amazed by the results.

Murad Youth Renewal Eye Masks. Tired? These masks treat the signs aging, de-puff, and reduce under-eye darkness.  Plus, they’re moisturizing during these dry winter months.

Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Stick. Usually I carry the Eye Bright concealer stick for easy touch ups. But I have a baby keeping up nights, so I need something tougher.  This stick both conceals and brightens, and it slips into any size purse.

Saie Bronzer and Buffing Brush. If you love a good bronzer, this cream bronzer from Saie is the best one. I saw it on so many Instagram feeds and it couldn’t be as good as claimed, but it’s pretty awesome.  Once you master application with the big brush, it goes on smooth and easy.

Sephora Makeup Brush Cleaning Mat. Lay this mat in the bottom of your bathroom sink and use it to get your makeup brushes squeaky clean. The nubby silicone really loosens up grime and dirt.

Clarins V-Facial Deputing Mask. This mask de-puffs, brightens and illuminates. I take it on business trips to combat all of the salt, alcohol, and lack of sleep.  It’s like being properly rested and hydrated in a mask.

goop. The Martin Detox Salts. These salts are one of those splurge purchases that you buy just to give yourself a little bit of luxury.  The first time you add them to your bath, they just feel like self-care. Don’t miss out.

    I bought the K18 on your recommendation and it’s almost annoying how good it is! I have blonde highlights and I try to treat them well- Olaplex treatments, purple masks, salon-recommended shampoo- but nothing gets my hair to the pre-bleach level of health like the K18 does. I’ve switched to cheaper versions of most of my other hair products now just so that I can afford to keep the K18 in the mix, and my hair still looks better than it did before!

    ok i hate to be that person, but you need to google the Grandelash class action lawsuit..I used to use it and it works exceptionally but the eyelid fat loss was not worth it for me. Im currently researching eyelash setums tbat dont have prostaglandins which appear to be the culprit in the side effect issues.

    I’m planning to restock on conditioner and moisturizer and trying out the Dr Dennis Gross peel pads.

    Thanks for the sale reminder, Abra! For anyone thinking about pulling the trigger on the K18 leave-in treatment, I noticed Sephora has a gift set version with a full-size treatment plus a mini K-18 detox shampoo for the same price as just the treatment. I’ve never used the detox shampoo, so I can’t speak to its effectiveness, but I’m always in the “more is more” category.

    I’m buying another tube of topicals faded serum, my current one is finally running out after using it for over a year! And I have not been skimpy. I tend to have a lot of hyperpigmentation after a breakout and I have never used anything that faded it as well as this, including sunday riley good genes which I would go through faster. I also use it as a spot treatment on any marks on my body, and have recently added in the slather body treatment from the same brand. My only complaint about the brand is that the products smell funky from the actives (there’s no added fragrance which is good for my sensitive skin) but it doesn’t linger after application. Highly recommend!
