If you’re a fan of Sephora like I am, you probably already know that today is the first day of their bi-annual sale. Today, I’m sharing my VIB Sale recommendations. The VIB sale runs from today until May 1, with specific days for each level in the VIB program. Here’s a run down of the percentages and dates:

The code is SPRINGSAVE.
I’m rounding up my recommendations for the sale. This year, I’ve decided to organize them by category. I have to warn you, the skincare category is pretty extensive. Skincare is my weakness, but it’s also a lot of fun for me. In fact, stay tuned next week for a really great skincare post! For now, these are my VIB Sale recommendations.
When I plan my sale picks, I always start with the basics first. I stock up on my favorite face wash, moisturizer, and any other skincare I use every day. Then, I add in some things I want to try but wouldn’t normally buy at full price. Drunk Elephant is always a good one to try during the sale. Their Vitamin C Serum seriously improved my skin last year. Their Lala Whipped Moisturizer is also a really great one. I also love anything from Caudalie, especially their SOS Intensive Hydration. It’s like a tall glass of water for your skin. If you’re looking for skin treatments, the Drunk Elephant Babyfacial is amazing. I always add in a pack of the Eve Lom cleansing cloths. One pack lasts me a year. And I can’t forget my Supergoop! CC Cream. I use it every single day.
Although I don’t wear as much makeup as I have in the past, I can’t resist a good sale when it comes to my favorite brands. I have two favorite brands from Sephora at the moment — it’s Charlotte Tilbury and Tarte all the way! I use at least one product from each brand every single day. The Charlotte Tilbury Bronze & Glow duo is gorgeous and lasts for (seemingly) forever. Also, I wear the Pillow Talk lip liner nearly every day. I really need to pick up the blush and lipstick to try! The Tarte Maracuja concealer is my new favorite, and I have loved their Rainforest of the Sea Foundation for a few years now. Although their Maracuja oil could be considered skincare, I use it as a primer under foundation and it’s amazing. My skin looks so healthy when I use it!
VIB BATH & BODY
Warning: I am on a total body skincare kick right now. Maybe it’s the weather warming up, maybe it’s my age. I don’t know what it is, but I’ve seriously neglect ‘skincare’ for my body over the years. I guess I’m playing catch up. If you are looking for a really great neck/chest moisturizer, I can’t recommend the Perricone MD Cold+ Plasma enough. It has honestly changed the way my neck looks. I also have the Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Cream for the backs of my legs. It doesn’t change anything about my cellulite, but my skin looks healthy, I love the scent, and it has a warm sensation that’s nice right before bed.
If you’re looking for hand creams, I will be trying out the Supergoop! Handscreen and the Caudalie Brightening Hand Cream. For my body/legs, I am picking up the Skinfix Resurface+ Glycolic Renewing Body Scrub and their Resurface+ AHA Renewing Body Cream. If you’re looking tanning products, I LOVE the Coola Face Serum, St. Tropez Water Purity Mousse, and their tanning mitt. I also use the St. Tropez Tan Remover year round, not for removing tan but for exfoliating.
Lastly, I love everything by Herbivore if I’m looking for bath products. Their Rose Body Scrub smells divine, as does their Milk Bath Soak. If you haven’t tried the bath soak, at least purchase that during the sale! You won’t regret it.
Last, but certainly not least, hair! I haven’t needed to purchases hair products in nearly a year. I’ve gone from using anything and everything to having custom hair products from Formulate (so good!!) and Monat (also amazing, but I only love their conditioner/mask products). Last year, I picked up some Livin Proof during a sale and now I’m on that kick. I am honestly all over the place with my hair care, so I’m trying to do better and only use the things that work.
The Living Proof No Frizz line has been perfect for my hair lately. I love their shampoo, conditioner, and leave-in conditioner. I use their 5-in-1 styling product to smooth my hair, and their Perfecting Spray is great to tame fly-aways. I’m interested in trying the Ouai Heat Protecting Spray, which is now called the Memory Mist. The formulations are the same, only the name has changed. Also, Olaplex 3 is worth its weight in gold. It’s so good!
I could honestly recommend so much more! I hope you enjoyed these VIB Sale recommendations. If you have any questions, let me know & I’d be glad to help you.
