My Picks from the Sephora Beauty Insider Spring Bonus Event

The Sephora Beauty Insider Spring Bonus Event is here! This amazing beauty event that usually takes all of my money has so many of my go-to products included! Buying beauty products can be an investment but I’m not kidding when you look good, you feel good and this kind of investment is ALWAYS worth it. Since having kids I’ve started to focus more on my skincare routine and making sure the products I use are reliable and efficient. I’d like to think that I’ve tried them all (I haven’t) but for someone who is short on time and uses her products to death, I know the good stuff from the bad.

Best Hair Products from the Sephora Beauty Insider Spring Bonus Event

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo – this stuff is a dream. Seriously buy 4 bottles it is so good! Smells amazing, keeps your hair and clean and NOT GREASY (seriously this is the only dry shampoo that lets me go a few days without washing) and provides some volume, too!

Living Proof Flex Hairspray – light and flexible, just like the name. It keeps my hair in place without looking like a helmet. The best hairspray for beachy waves!

Living Proof Dry Volume Blast – who remembers when I did this demo on IG stories and you all were BLOWN away? I’ll do that again today but seriously this stuff makes you look like you just stepped out of a salon. Perfect for second day hair and literally brings your hair to LIFE. Like a blowout every single day but really you didn’t even take a shower! No one has to know.

Quai Hair Oil – the only way my hair stays frizz free. I apply to my ends before blow-drying and my hair is soft and smooth. My hair is super thick and frizzy so this is a must have for me. This also smells like a DREAM.

Moroccan Oil – for the days my hair needs some extra love. I have had this bottle for at least a year and there isn’t even a dent in it. A little goes a long way but I put a little bit on my ends to prolong my haircut and keep my ends looking and feeling fresh!

T3 Whirl Trio Styling Wand – the only curling iron I use! I typically use the 1” barrel and curl tight and away from my face then completely brush out with a flat brush. I love the options you have here and you never have to worry about the clamp crease! The best curling wand for women who feel totally lost when it comes to styling their hair (that was me 5 years ago). It also heats up and cools down super fast which I love.

Dyson Hairdryer – ok a total splurge but if you have thick hair this is 98346% WORTH IT. I would NEVER spend this much on a hair dryer but it has taken my 15 min blow dry (at least) down to 7-8 minutes. A huge timesaver! It also regulates heat to make sure your hair doesn’t get damaged. I also notice far less frizz! The perfect time to stock up on this baby (only one Dyson product allowed per purchase).

Best Skincare Products from the Sephora Beauty Insider Spring Bonus Event

Skincare is my jam. I am REGIMENTED about my skincare because wrinkles and loose skin run in my family so anything to keep my face looking TIGHT until gravity sets in is essential. Here are my must haves…

Sunday Riley Good Genes Lactic Acid Treatment – the reviews don’t lie folks. If you need an exfoliator (which you do because it’s the only way to ensure your products are breaking through that top layer of skin!) then put this in your shopping cart. It’s the first step in smoother, brighter, more even looking, youthful skin.

Sunday Riley A+ High Dose Retinol Serum – a must have to prevent aging skin. When I got a hydrafacial last month I asked the esthetician what her most recommended products were and she said Vitamin C and retinol. I started using this more consistently and have noticed a HUGE difference in my fine lines, tightness, brightness and tone of my skin. If you’re considered Botox, try this first. *I use 4x a week (at night) but see what your skin can handle.

Biossance Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil – the perfect blast of moisture and brightening Vitamin C. I put this on after I shower in the morning and after my retinol at night. It smells like a dream and is so effective!

Biossance Squalane + Peptide Eye Gel – I’ve been using this since October and I’m obsessed. Even the woman who does my eyebrows noticed a difference in the hydration of my eyelids. It works!

Drunk Elephant TLC Sukari Babyfacial – if you need a powerful mask to zap your skin into shape, this is it. This baby is STRONG but after 20 minutes your face will look like a baby’s booty – I’m serious (only three Drunk Elephant products allowed per purchase).

Fresh Antioxidant Face Mist – my favorite mid-day boost to revive my makeup and keep my skin looking dewy! I also use it to wet to foundation brush before applying! Everyone needs a face mist and this one is my favorite.

Best Makeup Products from the Sephora Beauty Insider Spring Bonus Event

Tatcha Silk Canvas Protective Primer – another product where the reviews don’t lie! This primer makes your skin feel like a dream before makeup application! If you ever feel like your skin looks blotchy or uneven or your makeup is gone within a few hours – this is your answer (only three Tatcha products allowed per purchase). 

Fenty Beauty Instant Retouch Concealer (color is Warm Olive) – dang this stuff is good. If you have any sort of dark circles this stuff will brighten you up in seconds. A new favorite product!

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush (color Luminous Flush) – hands down the best blush. It blends so well into your skin tone and is just so so pretty!

NARS Sheer Glow Foundation (color Deauville) – I talked about this foundation in this post and it is fricking amazing. Sheer, good coverage and just a great foundation if you’re not a foundation person!

Becca Sunlit Bronzer (color Capri Coast) – the most natural bronzer that I’ve found. Perfect for any season and gives your skin the slightest glow!

Hourglass Translucent Setting Powder – the final step to my makeup routine! It keeps my makeup in place and kind of applies a subtle filter that molds everything together. The perfect finishing touch!

Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara – as seen on my IG Stories, opens up your eyes, volumizes and lengthens! So so good. 

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara – this was my favorite mascara FOR YEARS and I’m going back to it after seeing it has over 380k postive reviews! I think that means we all need to order this immediately.

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask – if you have chapped lips (me, me, me!!) then trust me this will bring your lips BACK TO LIFE! Recommended by so many followers!

Ok not to brag, but I’m seriously impressed by the reviews/ratings of all my favorite products. Proof that when they are good, they are GOOD!! Are there any beauty products that you love that I’m missing! Don’t miss out on this amazing sale!!
