Happy Friday! I’m so excited because I just have one presentation today, then I am headed on a long weekend. I need to get some things ready before my husband’s birthday this weekend! Yay.
Anywho, last week on the blog I shared all the details on the Sephora Spring Sale and two holy grail hair products. Now that the sale is open to VIB members, I wanted to share what I placed my order for! I am reordering on some oldie, but goodies and also grabbing some new interesting products to test!
Before we hop in, don’t forget! I’m giving away my T3 angled curling wand to one lucky girl on my subscriber list. If you want to receive emails with exclusive content and sale alerts, subscribe here. Winner selected and emailed 5/5. **

WHAT I ORDERED FROM THE SEPHORA SALE
1.SUNDAY RILEY: A+ HIGH-DOSE RETINOL SYSTEM
I don’t have a retinol product mixed into my skin care routine yet so now that I’m in my late 20’s, I figured it’s time!
Made from Vitamin A, Retinol allows your skin to renew, enhances collagen production, reduces fine lines and improves skin tone and color. Whoa! That’s a lot. Basically it’s one of the most powerful and effective over the counter anti-aging products.
I read approx. 36 reviews of different brands and products online and decided to go with this one that deems 20k “loves” on Sephora’s site. Plus, if I’m going to apply a product I want the most bang or my buck and this has 5% compared to many options being 1-2%. It also has a lot of reviews on reducing hyperpigmentation which I want to work on lightening.
I’ll report back on how I like it!
2.BEAUTYBLENDER: SPONGE TRIO
This is a necessity stock up! I’ve been applying my under eye concealer for years with BeautyBlenders so this sale is a good time to stock up at a discount. I’ve tried knock offs, none compared to the OG. This set comes with three.
You can also apply your foundation or CC cream with a BeautyBlender for a more natural, lighter application.
3.ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS: BROW KIT
The Holy Grail of brows! I have used this brow pencil for years in ‘soft brown’. Anytime I test another product, I immediately return to this because it’s the most precise, natural looking and best color of all.
While I always grab one or two each Sephora sale, this year they have this duo set where you also get a brow gel!
4.SUNDAY RILEY: GOOD GENES LACTIC ACID TREATMENT
Okay we all buy something we don’t need during this sale, right? You finally ‘add to cart’ that product you’ve eyed for years. Well that’s this for me.
If you haven’t heard of it, I’m surprised! It’s in just about every single beauty magazine and has a huge cult following. On Sephora, it has 150k ‘loves’ and is rated 4.5 stars from 2k reviews.
If you’re a data lover like me, check this data point from their clinical study:
100% of women said this was the most effective skin-plumping product they have ever used and would definitely recommend this product to a friend
Add to cart!
5.BUMBLE AND BUMBLE: INVISIBLE HAIR PRIMER
If you’re an OG reader, you know all about this product! I’ve used it since my first visit to Sephora. It’s the best detangler ever and also serves as a UV/heat protectant, plus is hydrates your hair. It’s like a three in one!
6.TATCHA: SILK CANVAS PROTECTIVE PRIMER
I’ve heard such stellar reviews about this primer because it acts as a protective barrier between makeup and skin, helping to prevent clogged pores.
Ever review says that it makes your make up slide on so beautifully. I can’t wait to report back!
