MY PICKS FROM THE SEPHORA SPRING BONUS SALE
Now is the time to stock up, my friends. I love a good beauty bargain, but there are a few things that are worth the money and I have chosen my favorite picks for you, just in time for the sale. I have divided the sale into 3 categories to make it easier.
BEAUTYBIO GloPRO// I can not recommend this tool enough. Yes, it is pricey, but this sale takes the bite out of it and it really costs the same as one facial at a fancy salon. It works wonders and I highly recommend it. If you are not ready for Botox, but want to look more youthful, this is for you. It is not a magic wand and takes time to work. However, you will see lasting results if you stick with it, I promise. It helps with everything from fines lines & wrinkles, to uneven skin tone and rosacea. I even use it to minimize my scars from my skin cancer surgery.
DRUNK ELEPHANT THE LITTLES// I truly love everything this brand makes, so I will stock up on my favorite C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum and the T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum, as well as The Babyfacial and Marula Oil. If you are new to the line, I recommend you start with this starter kit. It includes some of the most popular products from the line so you can try before you buy. This is also great for travel.
LANEIGE LIP SLEEPING MASK// My go-to lip moisturizer. I use this religiously and it has made the biggest difference. My son loves it also. Ever since using this, my lips have been much softer and less chapped and it has because a must have item on my nightstand.
KIEHL’S MIDNIGHT RECOVERY SERUM// This stuff is liquid gold, I tell you. I alternate at night between this and the Drunk Elephant glycolic serum, which I only use about 1-2 times a week. Since my skin is sensitive, using a glycolic once or twice a week is enough for me. I love using this on the other nights. It helps my dry skin tremendously.
SUPERGOOP DAILY SUNSCREEN// This is a recent favorite and makes applying your sunscreen everyday so easy. You guys now I am a fanatic about it, since having suffered skin cancer. There really is no excuse anymore to not wear sunscreen with this stuff. It is a great, hydrating moisturizer and has SPF40 right in it. I sue it in conjunction with my Vitamin C serum to make both work even better. I explain this in further details in this Instagram post.
BECCA FIRST LIGHT PRIMER// Another recent discovery, this has quickly become my favorite primer. It is fabulous for drier and more mature skin. The purple shade brightens brightens and evens out the appearance of imperfections by softly scattering translucent, cool violet light. It is amazing.
IT COSMETICS CC CREAM// You all know my love for this product. It covers my rosacea, evens out my skin tone and contains a high SPF50. It also has skin loving ingredients in it that will improve your skin over time. I will never be without this product. I recommend this to everyone as a great buildable foundation and have yet to hear of anyone not liking it.
AMBIENT LIGHTING BLUSH// The price tag is what kept me away from this blush for a long time, but I finally bit the bullet and I am so glad I did. This is the prettiest blush and leaves behind a three dimensional glow that is hard to explain, but oh, so good. Trust me.
WANDER BEAUTY LIQUID EYESHADOW// You have seen me use these a bunch. I love them because they are so user friendly and so flattering. Anyone can use these. Once they dry, they do not budge. My favorite shades are Champagne and Steel Street.
LAURA MERCIER SETTING POWDER GLOW// I have been a long time fan of the original version, but this new glow version is pure magic. It gives you that light from within glow and is just like that petty instagram filter ina can. Another bonus, the container is HUGE, so you get a lot of poduct for your money. It will last forever.
BUXOM PLUMPING LIP POLISH// As far as glosses go, I feel like this one lasts the longest and the tingling effect makes your lips look and feel just a bit fuller. It has been my most favorite gloss to wear recently. All the colors are so pretty, but my favorite shades are Dolly and Sophia.
URBAN DECAY SETTING SPRAY// This is my holy grail setting spray and I talk about it and its many uses a lot in my Instagram stories. It will make your makeup last all day and night. I use it on all of my bridal clients and it has never failed me. It works in the hottest and most humid temps to have you looking fresh as a daisy.
GHD FLATIRON// I love this flatiron and for good reason. Yes, the price stings, but think of it as an investment in your hair, especially if you use this tool on a daily basis. Cheaper flatirons can really fry and damage your hair. What sets this one apart is that . this smart straightener predicts your hair needs, adapting to ensure the optimum styling temperature at all times for ultimate results with less breakage and more color protection. I have used it for years and can attest to its quality. No surprise here, that it won the Allure award last year.
T3 CURA HAIR DRYER// I have had my T3 dryer for over 7 years and it has never failed me. It cuts down on drying time, fights frizz and leaves your hair healthy and shiny. Again, a bit of an investment, but it will save you money in the long run and tons of time getting ready.
LIVING PROOF DRY SHAMPOO// This is my holy grail dry shampoo and I am never without it. I can go up to 7 days without washing my hair with this stuff. ( I am not sure of that is something to be proud of 😳) It really works to clean your hair and I love the texture and grip it adds to my fine hair.
Happy shopping and let me know what you get!
