I broke up this post into categories by request! You can scroll through each of the categories below and read my comments on each product. I caveated clean beauty products as well to help anyone who is on the hunt for safe or clean beauty! Not sure what that means? Read this post or watch the safe beauty highlights on my Instagram profile!
Some of my favorite hydrating products are in this category! The best serum and best face oil available at Sephora are by Beautycounter (temporarily). This new recovery balm by REN is a must have for anyone with dry skin. Tip: it’s also awesome for reviving skin if you travel a lot in airplanes. If you’re looking for a lighter version for summer and live in a humid climate, the REN Day Cream is perfect. For those that have been following me awhile, you know the Fresh eye cream is at the top of my list when it comes to the 15+ that I’ve tried. You can read reviews of all eye creams here!
If you’re looking for budget friendly skincare with decent ingredients, I’d recommend trying anything by The Ordinary. I think it’s great for people in their early 20s or anyone on a budget looking to maintain.
I love all of these products so much! Don’t miss this concealer (new-ish rec which replaced my Shape Tape) and this setting powder. This double ended eyeliner is a must of you’re looking for precision or to do a winged look. I also love this Charlotte Tilbury Unisex Glow – it gives your face an instant tan without risking sun damage and it’s so good. It matches your skin tone with some kind of makeup magic! The Hourglass Cosmetics Ambient Lighting Powders are also at the top of my list.
I love Briogeo. Period. I’m stocking up on so many of their products this sale because I’ve consistently been impressed and they’re a safe beauty brand! Their scalp repair products are also apparently amazing (so many of you have confirmed that) in case you struggle with scalp issues! I’m thinking I might do this hair repair kit! I also love the Living Proof products – especially the Dry Shampoo and volumizing products.
The Hourglass brushes are stand out products for me! If you need to refresh your brush set, I’d recommend all of them! My most used are the foundation brush and this double ended powder/highlighter brush. And yes, the slip scrunchies are 100% worth the hype!
SUNSCREEN / TANNING
I haven’t tried the after sun or the sunscreen by COOLA but have been really impressed by their BB Cream which is amazing especially for oily skin! The tanner for body and face is also pretty good and relatively clean! Make sure to pick up a mitt if you’re applying at home especially with a mousse!
If you’re feeling dry on your body, I highly recommend this combo: this body cream mixed with this body oil. The Kopari coconut melt is also an option but it is oily so don’t plan on putting clothes on immediately after. For tanning, I also really like Isle of Paradise in dark (even though I’m pale, I just use less so it’s a better value).
This is my favorite savings tip for the sale! I always stock up on travel sized products to either use as travel sizes or as a way to sample new products without having to buy a full sized product. Here are some of my favorite minis that I am getting from the sale or have tried before. This is the best way to try before you buy!!
