I’m joining the fun with these Sephora Sale clean beauty picks (plus, it’s been a while since I’ve done a beauty post!). I’m not a VIB Sephora customer, perhaps thankfully (though no judgement against those who do rack up the points!). So I haven’t been shopping the sale for a week now, though I do have a few favorites that I’ll stock up on this week.
Sephora Sale Clean Beauty Picks
I’ve started using Sephora primarily as my spot to pick up clean products. Gradually, I’m moving my makeup over to clean, though I can’t break up with my drugstore eye and eyebrow products. But, when it comes to skincare and skin makeup (highlighter, blush, lips), I’m all in. I try to keep things budget friendly-ish, so you won’t find anything much over $30 here, which feels like the perfect price point to try things out.
Saie Glowy Super Gel Lightweight Dewy Highlighter | $26.50: I use these mixed in with my sunscreen or over top of my moisturizer whenever I want a little extra glow. Or I’ll dab it on strategically if I’m refreshing my look before a night out. It’s perfectly subtle and I love the liquid consistency.
Tula Glow + Get It Cooling & Brightening Eye Balm | $28.50: This got a bit overhyped by influencers at one point, but I bought it and it’s totally worth it. It feels so nice and is a great way to moisturize the skin around my eyes whenever I’m feeling tired.
The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2% Exfoliating Serum | $8.90: I alternate this serum with a retinol in the evenings and I love how glowy it makes me feel the next day. Plus, you can’t beat the price.
Merit Great Skin Instant Glow Serum with Niacinamide and Hyaluronic Acid | $34.20: I use this serum every single morning layered over my Vitamin C serum while my skin is still moist. It lives up to the instant glow.
Merit Day Glow Dewy Highlighting Balm | $30.40: I had a heck of a time trying to find a highlighter that fit my requirements and, initially, I didn’t want a solid product. I much prefer a liquid, but not something like my allover highlighter from Saie that’s subtle. This needed to be for targeted use under eyebrows, on cupid’s bow, on cheekbones. The dewy nature of this balm straddled the line between liquid and solid and it’s one I’ve repurchased.
Tower 28 Beauty ShineOn Lip Jelly Non-Sticky Gloss | $15.20: They had me at “jelly.” I absolutely love this lip gloss. I went through one last spring and summer, and I got a second this fall. I also have Tower 28’s cream blush and would recommend (though, of the two blushes I own, the other is a better color for me — I’ll share next!).
LYS Beauty Higher Standard Satin Matte Cream Blush | $17.20: I LOVE this cream blush so much. It has the nicest dewy consistency and it lasts forever. I have it in Passion, which is the perfect pink-red.
The 7 Virtues Orange Blossom Eau de Parfum and Santal Vanille Eau de Parfum | $32-$88 | I discovered these two perfumes last year and both are regulars in my rotation. The Santal Vanille is perfect for those transitional spring and fall days where it’s still slightly chilly, while the Orange Blossom is what I wear all summer long.
