Below are 10 products that we’re either using the sale as an excuse to try out, or favorites that we’re restocking at a discount.

Tatcha The Dewy Skin Cream Plumping & Hydrating Moisturizer, $72 (sephora.com)

This one’s pricey, we know. But, it’s the only moisturizer that celebrities and skincare fanatics keep repurchasing, despite the damage it does to their wallets. It’s like drinking a whole bottle of water, for your face.

Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Dark Spot Serum Vitamin C Alternative, $82 (sephora.com)

We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again: This vitamin C alternative is highly effective at minimizing the appearance of dark spots and scars. Kelsey Merritt also swears by the luxurious product, and we’re definitely grabbing one while it’s on sale.

Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Perfect Glow Flawless Oil-Free Foundation, $69 (sephora.com)

There’s a reason every beauty guru on TikTok keeps coming back to this super dewy, high-coverage, yet skin-like foundation.

Saie Dew Liquid Cheek Blush, $25 (sephora.com)

These cream blushes are super long-lasting and come in the most stunning series of warm- and cool-tone shades for all seasons.

Gisou Honey Infused Hair Oil, $46 (sephora.com)

This hair oil will transform your dull and frizzy hair and give you the most glossy, shiny-but-not-greasy post-styling finish.

Sephora Collection Total Coverage Angled Sponge, $12 (sephora.com)

We’re stocking up on these because nothing applies makeup better than this bouncy, angled, latex-free and vegan sponge. For the price, it would be silly not to buy more than one.

Farmacy Clearly Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm Mini, $24 (sephora.com)

Nothing made us happier than when Farmacy came out with fragrance-free version of its best-selling cleansing balm. This clean and eco-friendly product is the first step in our double-cleanse routine and is excellent at removing makeup, dirt and layers of skincare products for a fresh and smooth feel before bed.

Nudestix Hydra-Peptide Lip Butter, $18 (sephora.com)

This ultra-hydrating, plumping lip balm features the glossiest, high-shine finish without any stickiness. We’re totally obsessed with layering the clear version on top of a lip liner, and Nudestix just launched three new shades, so you bet we’re going to try one out.

MAKEUP BY MARIO SoftSculpt Shaping Stick, $30 (sephora.com)

This super creamy, makeup artist-loved contour stick comes in six warm- and cool-toned shades that are shockingly easy to blend.

HAUS LABS BY LADY GAGA Color Fuse Talc-Free Powder Blush with Fermented Arnica, $38 (sephora.com)

Powder blushes are making a comeback and Lady Gaga’s brand won’t be left out of the narrative. We’ve been waiting to try these clean, talc-free, minimal-shine blushes.
