Sephora Spring Savings Event: What to Buy [2020]


Sephora Favorite Beauty and Haircare Products Spring Savings Event

It's finally here - the Sephora Spring Savings Event. It's honestly my favorite sale of the year! I add things to my wishlist all year long, and when this sale rolls around in the spring and fall, I splurge big time. I wanted to put together this post to share my all-time favorite beauty + skincare products from Sephora in case you need some ideas for what to purchase! The sale runs for a limited time, and it's such a good deal - you don't want to miss out.

Before we dive into it, here's a breakdown of the savings event: 


Everybody has access starting today, and there are a few different ending dates. Shoppers with Rouge status have extended access until May 1st, and they get 20% off! The next tier of members, VIB, can shop the sale until April 29th with a discount of 15%. Beauty Insiders can shop until April 27th and get 10% off. This is such an amazing deal! If you've never signed up for a free Sephora account, you can create one today and you will instantly become a Sephora Insider. Then you'll be eligible for 10% off during this Spring Savings Event!

To get the discount, all you have to do is login to your account, shop, and enter the code SPRINGSAVE at checkout. I think they also have a discount for free shipping under the promotions tab of the Sephora website, so even if you only want one item, you can still get free shipping! 

We're all going a little stir-crazy at home, so it's the perfect time to order some new beauty and skincare products. Self-care is extra important right now, and Sephora has hundreds of products at every price range to help you perfect your self-care routine. Now, let's get into my favorites and my wishlist. Happy shopping!

M Y  F A V O R I T E  P R O D U C T S


[1] Slip Silk Sleepmask

SHOP NOW

Yes, this is pricey, but it is worth every penny. This sleep mask is made of the highest grade mulberry silk. The Sephora description says it will help you get your ultimate beauty sleep, and I can confirm! It has anti-aging benefits and allows skin to breathe. The mask comes in so many cute colors - I am obsessed with my Caramel-colored one. This luxurious purchase will change how you sleep forever!

[2] Drunk Elephant Beste™ No. 9 Jelly Cleanser

SHOP NOW

Good for every skin type, this cleanser has been one of my holy-grail skincare products for years. It’s a clear, jelly-like cleanser that leaves your face feeling clean but not dry. I have really sensitive skin, and it seems like Drunk Elephant products were made for me. None of their products have ever irritated my skin! Like their other products, this cleanser is free of essential oils, drying alcohols, silicones, chemical screens, fragrance/dyes, and SLS.

[3] Make Up For Ever Matte Velvet Skin Blurring Powder Foundation

SHOP NOW

A setting powder is one of the only makeup products I wear “everyday”. I say “everyday” loosely, because I haven’t left the house in a month, and I definitely haven’t worn makeup. Anyways, this powder is great on its own, and it’s also a great way to set your foundation for full coverage. It's great for all skin types and has a matte finish that blurs pores. I am obsessed with this product - I will be repurchasing it many times!

[4] Drunk Elephant Lippe Balm

SHOP NOW

Dry, cracked lips have always been a struggle for me. You probably already know that I’m a huge Drunk Elephant Fan, so I was super excited to try out their chapstick! It is very moisturizing - it’s one of the few lip products that has actually helped my dry lips. It’s formulated for super-delicate lips, and like all Drunk Elephant products, is free of essential oils, drying alcohols, silicones, chemical screens, fragrance/dyes, and SLS. I will warn you that you don’t get much product for the price, but in my opinion, it’s worth it.

[5] Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo

SHOP NOW

Where would I be without dry shampoo?! Especially lately, it’s been my go-to haircare product. I love this dry shampoo for a few reasons. It smells amazing, and unlike a lot of other dry shampoos, it doesn’t leave a chalky residue in your hair. The Sephora website says it best, “A dry shampoo that actually cleans hair, eliminating oil, sweat, and odor.”

[6] Drunk Elephant D-Bronzi™ Anti-Pollution Sunshine Drops

SHOP NOW

I’ve never tried a product quite like this. It’s technically a serum, but it has a definite bronze color. I was a little skeptical when I first pumped some of this onto my hand - it seemed so pigmented, and I was worried it would make my face look ridiculous. I was so wrong! I mix a pump or two of this into my sunscreen or moisturizer on days I want to feel a little more bronzed. From the Sephora website, “A serum that defends against pollution and environmental stressors, delivered with a bronzy glow—like sunshine in a bottle, without the damaging effects.” I highly recommend this product, especially with summer coming up!

[7] Glow Recipe Watermelon Sleeping Mask 

SHOP NOW

You’ve probably seen this mega-popular mask on social media in the last year. It has sold out dozens of times, and it continues to be a favorite of the beauty community. This mask, infused with Watermelon Extract and AHA, is a lightweight formula that you apply before bed. It’s hydrating, soothing, and brightening, and the blend of lactic and glycolic acids gently exfoliate away dead skin cells. This mask is also pillow-proof, so you won’t have to worry about ruining your pillowcase.

[8] Sol de Janiero Brazilian Kiss Lip Butter

SHOP NOW

Like I said earlier, there are very few lip products that actually hydrate my lips. This is another one that I love! I love the packaging of this - you get a decent amount of product, and it’s easy to apply (it’s about the size of a glue stick). The ingredients of the Brazilian Kiss lip butter include cupuaçu, açaí, and coconut oil. It smells so good too!



[9] Drunk Elephant The Littles™

SHOP NOW

This set of eight of Drunk Elephant’s bestsellers is what made me fall in love with the brand. It’s perfect for testing out their skincare or throwing it in your bag when you’re on the go! The products are technically “sample sized”, but you get a lot out of them! It took me three months of daily use to use up everything in this set. I love the variety of products you get, and the little pouch they come in is so cute! From the Sephora website, “Use this kit exclusively to reset skin to a visibly healthy, balanced, glowing state. Much like you choose ingredients for your daily smoothie based on your body’s cravings, pick products for AM/PM skincare smoothies based on how your skin feels. Listen to your skin, it doesn’t always need the same thing.”

[10] Small Slipsilk™ Scrunchies

SHOP NOW

These are about as luxurious as you can get when it comes to scrunchies. These are not your average scrunchies - they’re made from the highest grade (6A) long fibre mulberry silk. Silk scrunchies do wonders for your hair! Normal hair ties can cause breakage, and these anti-crease scrunchies are gentle on delicate hair. I wear one every day!

[11] Sephora Collection Beauty On The Fly Bag

SHOP NOW

If you ever fly, you need this bag. It’s a quart-size TSA-friendly bag made for your carry-on liquids. This bag is so much cuter than a boring ziplock bag, plus it’s better for the environment! It’s so affordable too - only $4.95 (and that’s before the discount!). This bag is transparent and durable, and it’s my travel BFF.

[12] Drunk Elephant Protini™ Polypeptide Moisturizer

SHOP NOW

This is my all-time favorite moisturizer! I love how this moisturizer instantly makes my skin feel hydrated. Protini in your skincare is like adding protein into your smoothie. It makes my skin feel stronger, ultra moisturized, and it even helps smooth my fine lines and fade sun damage. Sephora describes it as, “A protein moisturizer that combines signal peptides, growth factors, amino acids, and pygmy waterlily to improve the look of skin’s tone, texture, and firmness.” This is an all-round amazing product! If you’re still not convinced, check this out: 

In an independent consumer-testing panel of 50 women ages 25 to 55:
-100% agreed their skin felt replenished and nurtured
-97% agreed their skin felt moisturized
-97% agreed their skin texture felt soft and smooth

[13] Benefit Cosmetics Precisely, My Brow Pencil Ultra Fine Shape & Define

SHOP NOW

Brows are one of my top beauty priorities. I’ve tried many different brow products, and this is my current fave! It’s a sleek, double-sided pencil with an ultra-fine time for easy application. They offer 12 shades, and the other side of the pencil is a spoolie you can use to brush out your brows. I love that you only need a few pencil swipes to fill in your brows - I’ve had the same pencil for 6 months, and even with daily use, it’s still not empty! The formula is waterproof and smudge-proof, so it’s great for summer days at the pool.

[14] Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream

SHOP NOW

This body cream smells like a beach vacation, and it does wonders for your skin! It makes your skin instantly feel moisturized, and it doesn’t leave a greasy residue. It absorbs into your skin quickly, and the caffeine in it has smoothing and tightening effects. This moisturizing cream makes your skin feel and look amazing!

[15] Milk Makeup Cooling Water

SHOP NOW

This is another one of my summer must-haves. Warm weather is going to be here before we know it, and this little stick feels like an ice cube on your face (but better). When I’m feeling sweaty and gross, I swipe this across my face a few times and I instantly look and feel better. Aside from feeling amazing, the cooling water stick helps de-puff your face and doesn’t leave any residue. It’s like “a cup of coffee for your eyes.” Bonus - if you keep it in the fridge, it feels even more amazing, and the cooling and de-puffing effects are boosted.

[16] Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer 

SHOP NOW

This is the perfect anytime lip color. I am not usually a lip gloss person, but this non-sticky formula is a staple of mine! It’s shiny and glittery without making you look like you’re headed to a nightclub. The color flatters all skin tones, and it has the same yummy smell as the lip glosses I used in junior high.

[17] Amika Bust Your Brass Cool Blonde Shampoo

SHOP NOW

Technically this is one of my sister’s favorites, but a favorite nonetheless! She has blonde-dyed hair, and she swears by this shampoo to reduce brassiness. Like you might have guessed, it is purple; this ultra-violet formula helps tone down harsh brassy tones that blondes often get. It works for natural and enhanced hair, and it also makes your hair super soft!

[18] Olaplex No. 6 Bond Smoother Reparative Styling Creme

SHOP NOW

The Olaplex No. 6 cream is great for both chemically-treated hair and normal hair alike. It’s a leave-in styling cream “that eliminates frizz, hydrates, and protects all hair types.” It smooths and protects hair while eliminating frizz for up to 72 hours. My sister has chemically-treated hair, and she swears by this to keep her blonde hair looking strong and healthy!

[19] OLEHENRIKSEN Sheer Transformation® Perfecting Moisturizer

SHOP NOW

This lightweight moisturizer truly does feel weightless on your skin. This “oil-free moisturizer is rich in antioxidants to weightlessly hydrate, even tone, and smooth skin texture for a healthy-looking complexion.” The texture of this product is amazing, and it’s perfect as a base for makeup or just to moisturize dry skin. It helps refine uneven skin tone and reduce discoloration. This moisturizer feels like a big drink of water for your skin!

[20] Olaplex No. 7 Bonding Oil

SHOP NOW

By the end of this post, you’ll see that I’m a big fan of Olaplex products. This oil is another favorite! It works on all hair textures and types, and does all sorts of amazing things for your hair. Oils can be scary, but this one is lightweight and absorbs quickly. It works to strengthen hair while minimizing flyaways, hydrating, increasing shine (without looking greasy), and protecting against heat. This is exactly what you need to protect and strengthen your hair!

[21] Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask

SHOP NOW

This is another product that the internet went crazy about in the last year. This overnight lip mask moisturizes lips and leaves them looking smoother and more supple. This product is even dermatologist-tested, and it works for all skin types! When I put this on before bed, I wake up with super smooth, moisturized lips. It’s not sticky and absorbs quickly - it’s a must-have lip product!




[22] Amika Bust Your Brass Cool Blonde Conditioner

SHOP NOW

This is another one of my sister’s favorites - the partner to the Amika Bust Your Brass Cool Blonde Shampoo. She swears by this shampoo + conditioner combo to keep her hair looking fresh between appointments. Both smell amazing too, which is a bonus!

[23] Olaplex Hair Perfector No. 3

SHOP NOW

This is not a conditioner, it’s a unique at-home treatment for your hair that repairs damage. It improves the look and feel of your hair while reducing breakage. Paired with other Olaplex products, this treatment helps keep your hair looking fresh and healthy every day.

[24] Laneige Lip Glowy Balm

SHOP NOW

This Laneige lip product is different from the sleeping mask that I love. It’s meant to be a “sidekick” to the sleeping mask, and it's great for applying multiple times a day. I love that it’s a tube so you don’t have to stick your finger in it, and it’s super moisturizing. The balm adds a slight tint to your lips and provides long-lasting hydration.

[25] Fresh Sugar Face Polish Exfoliator

SHOP NOW

This gentle face exfoliator is perfect for when your skin needs a little pick-me-up. It buffs away dead skin and smooths unevenness. The scrub smells amazing, and the natural ingredients make you feel good about what you’re putting on your skin! I have very sensitive skin, and this doesn’t irritate it. I love using this every few days to refresh my skin!

[26] St. Tropez Self Tan Express Bronzing Mousse

SHOP NOW

This tanning mousse has won several beauty awards. It’s lightweight and easy to use, and it leaves your skin looking naturally bronzed. I’m no expert at fake tanning products, but this makes it easy to look like I just stepped off the beach. It’s not sticky and doesn’t streak - it’s so easy, even I can use it!

[1]  Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Happi Scalp™ Scrub

SHOP NOW

This scalp scrub is one of Drunk Elephants brand new products. I can’t wait to try it! I’ve never heard of a product quite like this. It’s a “supercharged AHA/BHA acid blend dissolves dead skin cells and styling product buildup while biodegradable, gentle exfoliating beads sweep them away.” This scrub nourishes your scalp and keeps it flake-free. It works for all hair types, and it's lightweight. A healthy scalp is the key to healthy hair!

[2] Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta® Extra Strength Daily Peel

SHOP NOW

These peel pads have been on my wishlist for such a long time. I think this might be the year I finally purchase them! I’ve heard nothing but good things about these two-step peel pads. Made for all skin types, these pads contain 7 different AHA/BHA acids that help reduce fine lines, dullness, and acne.

[3]  Dae Daily Conditioner

SHOP NOW

I’m not going to lie, I originally wanted to try Dae hair products because I’ve followed Amber Fillerup, the founder of Dae, on Instagram and have read her blog for years. I was so excited to see she came out with a haircare line! Dae products work on any hair type. This conditioner pairs with the Dae shampoo, and they restore smoothness, moisturize and detangle your hair. I’ve heard these products are amazing, and I can’t wait to try them!

[4]  Drunk Elephant Cocomino™ Glossing Shampoo

SHOP NOW

This is another new Drunk Elephant product that I’m dying to try. Lots of good haircare stuff in this post! Like you’ve probably figured out, I LOVE Drunk Elephant’s skincare products, so I have high hopes for their new haircare line. This shampoo is made for every hair type and is color-safe. It helps hydrate, protects against split ends, and is gentle on hair. What really draws me to Drunk Elephant’s products is that they avoid the Suspicious 6 in their ingredients. It’s worth it to me to spend a little more on brands like Drunk Elephant so I know exactly what I’m putting on my skin/hair!

[5]  NARS Laguna Bronzer Powder with Gold Overspray – Jumbo

SHOP NOW

NARS is another brand that’s always had a special place in my heart. First of all, can we talk about how beautiful this packaging is?! This bronzer has a subtle shimmer that leaves you looking glowy and bronzed.




[6]  Dae Daily Shampoo

SHOP NOW

This is the compliment to the Dae conditioner mentioned earlier. I feel like you can’t try out a shampoo without trying the matching conditioner, so this had to make the list!

[7]  Drunk Elephant Cocomino™ Marula Cream Conditioner

SHOP NOW

This new conditioner pairs with the Drunk Elephant shampoo I mentioned above. It’s “a concentrated, nourishing blend of non-fragrant plant oils and butters that soften, smooth, and detangle all hair types.”

[8] Wild Marula™ Tangle Spray

SHOP NOW

My hair gets so tangly and hard to brush, especially in the summer! I think I’m most excited about this out of all of Drunk Elephant’s new products. Not only does this spray detangle, but it also hydrates and protects your hair against heat!

[9] Sephora Collection Mini Face Roller Set

SHOP NOW

I love facial rollers, and these two are so affordable that I just have to order them! This is “a two-piece, mini face roller set for targeted areas of the face and eyes with a cute velvet pouch for storage.” I’ve noticed a huge difference in my skin since I started using facial rollers. I have an ice roller than I use on days my face feels puffy, and these cute little guys will be the perfect supplement to that!

[10] Summer Fridays Lip Butter Balm

SHOP NOW

Summer Fridays just released this lip balm, and if it’s anything like their other products, it will be amazing! It’s a mask-like lip balm that "hydrates and soothes parched lips while sealing in moisture for lusher-than-life lips on demand day or night."

[11] Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask

SHOP NOW

This is another product that has been on my wishlist for a long time. It’s super popular on social media, and I’ll definitely be ordering it this year! This mask works on all skin types and helps with hydration and dullness. From Sephora, “Summer Friday’s Jet Lag Mask is a rich combination of ceramides, vitamins, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory ingredients that help to combat puffy, inflamed, over-worked skin.”
