Sephora Beauty Insider Sale 2020: The Clean Beauty Edit
A few times a year, Sephora has a major money-saving event and, starting tomorrow (April 17) is one of those times! Let all beauty enthusiasts rejoice! During Sephora’s Beauty Insider Sale, you can stock up on all your favorites for less and test out a few new things you’ve wanted to try.
Not a Sephora Beauty Insider yet? Be sure to sign up so you can get in on all the rewards! It’s fast, free to join, you earn points every time you shop, get access to exclusive Insider deals, and you get to pick a free gift to celebrate your birthday each year.
Here’s how Sephora’s Spring Savings Event works:
Starting Friday, April 17 (tomorrow) through Friday, May 1, Rouge members (AKA those Sephora obsessed) will get 20% off their entire purchase. VIB members will have access to the sale on Tuesday, April 21 through Wednesday, April 29, and receive 15% off their purchase. For Insiders (AKA what you’ll be if you sign up today), you receive 10% off your order, and sale access starts Thursday, April 23, and runs through Monday, April 27.
While it’s 100% free to join Sephora’s Beauty Insider loyalty program, the more you spend, the more you save. VIB members must spend $350 in a calendar year, and Rouge members must spend $1,000 in a calendar year to qualify, while Insiders (you, if you signed up today) will still be able to save that 10% no matter how much you spend!
Don’t forget: Whether you’re Rouge, VIB, or Insider, use code SPRINGSAVE at checkout to redeem your tier’s specific offer.
Now that we’ve got all that broken down, let’s talk about what you should consider adding to your cart.
If you haven’t transitioned to using non-toxic products, now is the perfect time to start cleaning up your beauty routine. I dare you to swap out one of your conventional products for a clean beauty option.
Below are 16 beauty products to stock up on during Sephora’s Beauty Insider Spring Savings event!
BIOSSANCE Squalane + Tea Tree Cleansing Gel
Biossance is one of my favorite clean beauty brands; all their products are vegan, cruelty-free, and contain their hero ingredient: Squalane, an incredible moisturizer. The Squalane + Tea Tree Cleansing Gel works well for oily/combination and acne-prone skin. It thoroughly removes makeup and thanks to the tea tree oil helps to unclog your pores—all without stripping or drying your skin.
*I suggest using makeup remover first to get the initial layer out of the way, then this gel to take care of the rest!
BIOSSANCE Squalane + Omega Repair Cream
For a daily, daytime face moisturizer, another Biossance favorite is the Squalane + Omega Repair Cream—a rich formula made with good fats and hyaluronic acid to lock in moisture. I love that this cream leaves my face dewy and radiant, without looking or feeling greasy. Also, it’s light enough to wear under makeup.
*I apply it in the morning, but you could use it in the A.M. and P.M. for all-day hydration.
TATA HARPER Regenerating Exfoliating Cleanser
This 100% natural exfoliating cleanser is gentle enough to use multiple times a week and instantly awakens skin, leaving your face feeling bright and fresh. All Tata Harper’s products are made without the use of synthetic chemicals and in small batches, which makes all the difference in the details.
*This is a game-changer for dry and dull skin. I use it when my skin is looking tired and lackluster.
BOSCIA Chia Seed Moisture Cream
Chia Seed Moisture Cream by Boscia is perfect for when your skin is craving serious hydration. This super-rich formula, infused with Chia seed oil helps to restore moisture and prevent future dehydration of the skin. All of Boscia’s products are plant-to-bottle formulas and made with real ingredients.
*I apply nightly and wake up each morning with happy, plump skin!
BIOSSANCE Squalane + 10% Lactic Acid Resurfacing Night Serum
This lactic acid serum’s unique formula of 10% vegan lactic acid, clover extract, and Squalane reduces cell build-up and boosts cell turnover, giving you overnight results. The clover extract repairs the effects of everyday skin stressors like pollution, UV light, and blue light while also enhancing the effectiveness of lactic acid.
OLAPLEX Hair Perfector No. 3
Olaplex’s team of chemists and industry experts have changed the hair care game. Science is what sets Olaplex products apart. The No. 3 Hair Perfector is not merely a conditioner; it’s an at-home, salon-level treatment that works from the inside out to reduce breakage and improve even the most damaged hair. With our hair appointments on indefinite hold, treat yourself to this product. It has over 1,900 5-star reviews for a reason!
PLAYA Ritual Hair Oil
A good hair oil is crucial for curls, and this Ritual Hair Oil by Playa is a favorite. Playa products are all about using less to get more, and this hair oil does just that. Made from sunflower oil for shine, apricot oil for sealing in moisture and nutrients, and lycopene to protect your locks from natural, environmental damage, this oil makes curls pop and keeps them moisturized.
NUFACE Mini Facial Toning Device
Staying inside all day every day with recycled air takes a toll on your skin. This mini facial toning device from the mother-daughter team behind NuFACE does wonders in terms of facial contour, tone, and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by emitting a gentle microcurrent to your skin. Give your face a small spa break with this toning device.
TWEEZERMAN Pink Perfection 15x Lighted Magnifying Mirror
For those who are desperately missing their eyebrow appointments, this Tweezerman magnifying mirror is your best friend (or worst enemy, depending on how you look at it). This lighted mirror is magnified by 15x, making it easy to groom even the smallest, most stubborn follicles.
SEPHORA COLLECTION Facial Cooling Globes
Cold compresses do wonders for inflammation and irritation, and these cooling globes are just the ticket for at-home self care. Simply store them in the fridge and take them out to use with your face serum or moisturizer for an added layer of smooth, nourished control.
TWEEZERMAN Ultra Precision Cuticle Nipper
We’re all missing our manicures, but these Ultra Precision Cuticle Nippers by Tweezerman will help with your DIY manis. No one can deal with cuticles the way your nail tech can, but Tweezerman tools get close!
*Soak your nails in warm water for a few minutes, push your cuticles back, and use these nippers to feign a professional manicure until we can get back to salons.
SHISEIDO Eyelash Curler
Although I’m not wearing makeup most days right now, I still like to curl my eyelashes to wake my face up during the day. This Shiseido eyelash curler is the holy grail of curlers. Shiseido is known for infusing Japanese culture and innovation into every product it creates, and this is no exception.
Kitsch X Justine Marjan Medium Rhinestone Snap Hair Clips 2 Pack
KITSCH is a female-owned company and always delivers elevated versions of your everyday staples, and Justin Marjan is a widely-known celebrity hairstylist, so these fun and functional rhinestone clips are a no-brainer for getting your hair out of your face.
