The Sephora sale is here once again! And with so many amazing products, it can be hard to know where to start or what to grab for a steal. So today, I’m going to take you through my clean beauty & skincare essentials. Everything I’ve repurchased a million times, the products I think are worth trying and what’s on my wishlist. Grab your wine or tea babe. We’ve got some shopping to do!
My Most Repurchased
I’m a major fan of Tata’s cleansers. This product was one that really helped shift my perspective with my skin when I was working to heal my hormonal acne. It’s calming but not overly drying. Your skin feels clean but not striped. Easily on the top of my holy grail list.
I’ve gone through several bottles of this SPF since I first discovered it. It’s light weight, adds a bit of glow to my skin but also keeps it protected. I’ve worn it under makeup as a bridesmaid, paired with my bronzi drops daily and as the base of my foundation. If you haven’t invested in an spf for your routine, this is one I’d highly recommend snagging during the Sephora sale.
Before I really dived into the skincare side of acne, I didn’t really understand the importance of serums in a skincare routine. They are a very essential piece of the puzzle. Each one can help heal or erase a problem.Vitamin C is one that does a load of things. I use it to brighten my skin and heal my acne scars. If you think your skin is dull, I’d recommend snagging one in the Sephora sale. It’s also great for reversing dark spots and pigmentation. I’ve gone through a few bottles of this one from Farmacy and it’s still a favorite.
Depending on the time of the year, my skincare routine changes. But you can pretty much guarantee that there’s an oil floating around all year. Whether it’s being used with my gua sha tool or in conjunction with a balm to fight off winter dryness, this budget buy from The Ordinary is a great moisturizer to keep in your rotation.
I love these drops for a lot of reasons. However, I think you have to find how they work for you. They are great for creating my own little tinted moisturizer daily. You can also add them into a foundation that you need to make a little darker instead of having to buy an all new one. A little bit goes a long way so one bottle lasts for ages. I’ve tried other bronze drop versions but so far, this one is my favorite!
There’s a handful of products in today’s Sephora sale list that I didn’t repurchase. I really enjoyed them but I opted to try something new so I had more things to share with you babes. But I immediately repurchased this bronzer once I finally hit pan. It’s the perfect color duo that gives you that warm glow during summer. It’s got both the cooler toned bronzer and the more orangey warm side. I also love using it for eyeshadow.
Years ago, I was introduced to using an eyelash primer before mascara and I’ve never looked back. It makes SUCH a difference. My eyes are rather sensitive. It’s one of the many reasons I love using clean beauty. The lack of fragrance means they don’t get irritated as easily. I’ve gone through a few tubes of this primer. It helps give life to my lashes setting me up for the almost fake lash look I strive for daily.
I tend to reach for this primer most when I need my makeup to last ALL day. Or you know in the summer in Florida because humidity is tough on foundation. It has that smoothing silicone look from traditional primers but without the silicone. I’ve put this one through the test with loads of events, outdoor shoots and weddings and have continued to repurchase it over & over again. Highly highly recommend.
One of my travel essentials is hydrating sheet masks. I always tend to need them after loads of events, not enough water or just landing in a place that my skin doesn’t love. I’ve learned the hard way that it’s just better to be prepared. This one from Farmacy is one of my faves and a great steal during the Sephora sale. Hydrating, cooling and a nice way to pamper when you need a pick me up.
If you read my recent updated skincare post, you’ll know that this is one of my essentials. I use it a few ways. The Co-10 makes it very hydrating so I use it either after my Paula’s Choice toner, on its own or whenever my skin needs a refresh. It’s a great option to have on hand whenever my skin just needs a little pick me up. Highly recommend!
I’m always on the hunt for good, long lasting clean primers. And this one from REN has amazing reviews. In general, I tend to love their products. So I’ll definitely be adding this to my Sephora sale wishlist.
And for the days that I’m at home and just want a gorgeous glow, this priming oil is also on the list. Every product I’ve tried from Lilah B so far as won me over. I have high hopes for this one.
My love for Bite Beauty and my curoiousity with regards to all things clean makeup means my interested in definitely peaked by this product. Again, I’m going off my love of other products they’ve created. But this one will end up in my collection sooner or later.
I have to say that I’ve tested this before but only with a sample size. The beauty of makeup is that once you get a basic understanding of how formulas work, you can really mix and play with products. There’s not really a one set way to do things. It depends on the look you’re trying to achieve. And since I’ve been loving a bit more of a dewy look with cream products lately, I think that I’ll find this fits right in.
As noted, I love Aether Beauty. I also really do love a full on glam look when I’m in the mood. And this highlight is calling my name.
Ages ago, I was a stickler for an eye primer. But once I realized that I could use concealer & powder to get my shadow to last, the game changed. And I’m definitely curious about this primer from Lilah B.
I could lie and say I’m just picky about lip balms. I’m particular about pretty much everything. But because I tend to be a color girl, I really only reach for lip balms when I NEED hydration. I want them to really moisturizer. This one has been popping up all over lately so I’m very much intrigiued.
At one point a few years ago, I would have been exclusively a matte lip girl. However, I tend to go with my mood/eye look a little more these days. Kosas makes some of my favorite products including my go to lip sticks. So of course, I had this lip oil on my Sephora sale wishlist. Need.
And because a girl can never have too many options, I’ve also added this beautiful color from Kora Organics. I’ve tried several things from their skincare line and love them. They didn’t make the list today for one reason of other (not available, high $$ for the amount of product). But I’m curious enough to give this one a go!
I’m always on the hunt for eye shadow palettes that I can recommend to you babes. I know that some prefer a few colors while others want a full spectrum of colors. This eyeshadow quad from Roen Beauty gives you a basic set of warm colors that can be worn daily. And since I haven’t tried anything from their line yet, I feel like now is the time to snag something during the Sephora sale.
One of the things that is most rare with clean eyeshadow is finding incredibly vibrant colors. So if you needs a really strong pop of pink or a deep blue, it might take some time to hunt it down. I’ve had my eye on this palette for a while for those days where I just want to PLAY with makeup. It will definitely find it’s way into my collection soon enough.
Despite my love for several brow pomades, I always find my way back to a good pencil. The front of my brow is a bit sparse and it needs the extra help. So of course, I had to add this clean beauty option to the Sephora wishlist.
Bronzer has become such a staple in my routine/makeup bag over the last few years because it’s just so versatile. If you like to keep minimal products in your collection, it’s a good idea to invest in bronzer because it can fill in the gaps when you need a basic liner or eyeshadow. And as we’ve already seen, I love Kosas. So these new bronzers are high on the list!
To be honest, I don’t think Aether Beauty will ever make a product I don’t want to try. I love a good face trio of products. It makes traveling easier. But in general, I just think the colors for this palette are gorgeous.
One of my favorite things do when I’m doing a more simple eye look or even with wedding makeup is to add a pop of color at the center of the eye. I often find that the tendency to want to go dramatic with eye makeup means that we go really dark. And if you’re rocking hooded eye lids like me, then your eyes almost look closed in photos. A little bit of sparkle or lightness in the center helps. RMS Beauty has so many eye polish colors but I’ve yet to try any of them. It’s safe to say they are all on the list!
I tend to reach for facial spray most often when my skin needs a pick me up. It’s great for setting makeup but also when you just need to add the glow back in midday. I’ve heard loads of great things about Tower 28 but I’ve yet to try anything. This feels like a great product to start with!
Alright friends. That’s a lot to shop but there are so many amazing clean products out there! I’d love to know what you end up snagging during the sale. So be sure to leave us a comment below so we can all know what we need to try next!! Until next time. Xoxo, Savvy
