Updated: Apr 24, 2021

It's that time of year again! The Sephora sale!

This is the best time to stock up on your holy grail products but also get those stocking stuffers and gifts for Christmas. Depending on how much you spend a year at Sephora, you can be eligible to save 20, 15 or 10% on your purchase. Don't forget to use the code HOLIDAYFUN.

There are so many beautiful brands at Sephora that it can be hard to narrow down your shopping list. I pulled together some of my favorite picks and give you the low down on why they are worth you taking a look.


1. L'Occitane Shea Butter Intensive Hand Balm

I have been using this hand cream for years! And oh my gosh, it is amazing. I have super dry skin and eczema to boot and I put a pea size drop on the back of my hands rub them together and whatever excess is left over I apply to the palms of my hands. This hand cream doesn't leave a residue but I just really, REALLY don't like the feeling of having any type of cream on my palms that's why I start with back of my hands. Your hands feel like they are wrapped in silky, hydrated goodness without feeling tacky.

2. L'Occitane Cleansing & Softening Shower Oil w/ Almond Oil

Another luxurious feeling lord! This oil starts to lather when mixed with water. It cleanses your skin while at the same time moisturizing your skin leaving it feeling extremely supple with a light almond scent.


1. Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Multi-Recovery Complex

This is my number one holy grail product of all time. I have been using this product for over ten years and thankfully even through new formulations it remained an old faithful. You can use it day and night but it really is a night product. It works with your skin's natural circadian rhythm. It works to repair your skin at night which is also the same time that your skin's natural repair system gets into gear. I guarantee you that you'll feel your skin more supple and softer the next day. In the long run, you'll skin will feel more hydrated, more youthful and radiant. I can honestly tell you that I can feel and see the difference when I don't use this for a while. And since it is a little on the pricier side, it's the perfect time to pick up this gem.


1. Smashbox Halo Fresh Setting & Perfecting Powder

When I started using this powder years and years ago, my skin was dry combination. Meaning normal on the t-zone and super, super dry around my cheeks and mouth. Every time I would set my foundation with powder, it would feel as dry as a cardboard. It'd look lackluster and I'd have creepiness around my smile lines. It would even feel tight to smile. Then I found this little treasure and it transformed my makeup. Besides giving you a flawless, airbrushed but natural looking finish, it leaves you skin feeling very comfortable. No tight feeling or dry, scaly look. Even now that my skin type has changed, I am more natural to oily, it still feels and looks amazing without making me feel like a grease ball. Def worth looking into.

2. LAWLESS The One Eyeshadow Palette

So I have never used this palette out this brand as a matter of fact but I do follow the founder on Instagram, Annie Lawless, and her reviews are very good. The colors are perfect for the season but also very wearable through the rest of the year. You can create so many different looks from everyday casual to glam sex goddess night time looks.

3. Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick

Wow! This formula is incredible. It's matte without adhering to your lips like a sticker tattoo, lol. It has more of a velvety finish rather than super matte and drying so it is super comfortable to wear. They also have the most beautiful shades to choose from.

4. Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Lip Liner

This lip liner is so creamy and easy to apply but won't let your other lip products run outside the line. Just like the lipstick, you have many shade options.

5. Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder

I meannnnnnn do I even have to say it. Everybody knows about this powder. It's hands down the best powder in the industry to set your makeup and specifically under your eyes. Doesn't crease and doesn't give back flash back on pictures.


1. Olaplex Holiday Hair Fix Kit

Olaplex is widely know as one of the best hair brands out there but it isn't cheap. This kit offers you the opportunity to try out the brand at a discount but the holiday sale makes it even more affordable. So if this is a brand that you've had your eye on, now is the time to pull the trigger.

2. OUAI Volume Spray

I cannot say enough good things about the spray. It gives insane volume, smells amazing and doesn't weigh down your hair in any way. I usually spray this at the crown of my head and a little towards the back while my hair is still damp, then I blow dry and style as usual. I've been using this product for over two years and it was a key product in my wedding hair. I have super thin, flat hair so for me to trust this product and be satisfied every single time says a lot.

3. Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo

I found this product through an influencer, which is how we find a lot of products nowadays, and I have never looked back. I must say though, a little goes a long away. Because I have thin, flat hair, I use often use dry shampoo on day one hair. I spray this at the crown of head on day one to help give me volume and control the oil before it starts to set in. This dry shampoo helps my cowlick get its life together!


1. AERIN Amber Musk

AERIN is one of those brands that exudes style and sophistication and you can definitely smell that in her fragrances. Amber Musk is one of those fragrances that wraps you up in in its warm musky, deep scent. This is the perfect scent for the colder months, it's super long lasting without being overbearing. All of AERIN's fragrances are amazing so make sure to take a look at them all.

I love all the products listed above and stand by them. Now really is one of the best times to shop and stock up on all our faves. Don't miss out!

What are you guys planning on buying during the sale?
