WELCOME TO SEPHORA’S SPRING 2022 SALE.
As usual I’ll start off with the rules (same as last sale but I’ll state it here anyway). Just an FYI, this guide does not include any duplicates from last year’s guide so make sure you check that out if you want more ideas!! I just want to be able to provide the newest + latest as well as some new items I’ve tried. Everything mentioned below I’ve tried, tested, loved UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED.
DATES OF SALE:
Code is SAVESPRING
Of course there are SOME rules to the sale but obviously I gotchu so here it is:
- ONE Dyson item (airwrap is still sold out FML)
- FIVE Morphe items
- THREE Tarte Shape Tape Concealers
- Discount does NOT work on these brands: The Ordinary, MAC Cosmetics, VIVA GLAM products, gift cards (obviously) (once again, I will not be recommending these products because you can buy them anytime #NORUSH)
SEPHORA COLLECTION IS 30% OFF THE ENTIRE SALE PERIOD FOR A REGISTERED USER.
If this vitamin C serum was a boyfriend, you would definitely want to trap this man to be your husband. Not only is it an effective vitamin C serum, but because it also includes AHAs and BHAs (in human terms.. IT ALSO REFINES YOUR PORES AND SMOOTHES YOUR TEXTURE). Trap this serum like you would trap a husband, ladies (or gentlemen… i mean skin care is genderless despite some of the packaging LOL)
If you followed my vlogs you will know that this face wash was the lifeboat to me drowning in the ocean (that didn’t happen btw). But seriously, this idiot (me) forgot to bring my make-up remover/cleansing oil on my trip to California and THIS FACE WASH is not only a great face wash alone (just look at the raving reviews on Sephora) but also, it removes make-up pretty well!!! So if you’re too lazy to buy two separate products for morning/night face wash.. JUST USE THIS ONE!!!
This season’s most beloved winter cream is THIS ONE RIGHT HERE. Don’t get me wrong, this is a pretty thick cream but it’s effective AF. I would get this if you want a super hydrating and reviving cream for night time especially if you live in a dry, cold place (TORONTO I AM TALKING TO U)
If you don’t live in a cold, miserable place like me and the above cream does not appeal to you (aka if you live in California #luckySOBs #youmustbesohappy), LOOK NO FURTHER because I swear by this cream. So Laniege JUST revamped their packaging for this line and it confused the shit outta me cuz I was looking everywhere on Sephora to recommend this product only to find out their packaging changed but the product didn’t LOL. I used this cream both morning and night during my entire trip in California and it was PERFECT for times like those. For fellow Canadians, this one is still good for you but I would recommend this for morning only and using something thicker at night!
My eye cream pick of this season is this one. I’ve left some other recommendations below but this one made it to my #1 because this literally felt like a cucumber eye mask I could wear walking around. Just a warning – it DOES smell like cucumber (which I love) so if you are looking for something without fragrance, I have some other recommendations below (especially the eye cream by KEYS… that’s the one I’m using in the morning rn). They are also amazing (otherwise wouldn’t even make it onto this list) but I HAD TO PICK ONE TO HIGHLIGHT 😭
BROOOOOO Do not even get me started on this product. The funny thing is this product is so underrated and reviewed because I feel like people dgaf about their necks but necks are one of the easiest/earliest signs of ageing. Mark my word, when I’m 50 years old and my neck looks like the skin of a 5 month old, this will be the reason. Even if you don’t trust me, trust the THREE (lmao) reviews on it on Sephora. Like I said, I honestly think people just don’t buy it because they neglect their necks. But let’s all aim for a FRENCH FACE shall we? Basically a French face is your face + neck + upper chest. These are all the areas the French do their skin care. And you should too.
Ok so this product was hyped up for years and I finally got to try it and I can see what the hype is all about now. This is ESPECIALLY amazing under make-up and even more if you are having a less/more natural make-up day because it will make your skin glow like a neon sign in a dark ass club (idk why this is my reference… clearly I am dying to go out LMAO)
I’m gonna already begin by saying this duo face serum + cream is expensive af. The serum alone is CAD$310 and the cream is CAD$290. I am not here to discount how expensive this is and there are definitely cheaper creams + serums out there as alternatives… but I am leaving this here anyway because DID IT COMPLETELY TRANSFORM MY FACE THIS MONTH?! It literally pains me to say yes. I remember using this product thinking “this better make me a better person at this price point” and it honestly did. I’ve used it every night for all of March since I got back from Mexico and… guys… lmao… my face has NEVER been this smooth. And thus it made me a better person because I walk around knowing my skin is extra nice which also makes ME nice.. Ya know? LOL ANYWAY… I was also like… am I crazy for loving this? But apparently 190 other people reviewed this product and they all have similar things to say. I guess this is one of those moments where “you get what you pay for”.
GOOD NEWS THOUGH… I found a gift set they are selling for CAD$87 (worth $157) so when you buy it with the discount you are TRULY SAVING.
One thing to note though: these two items are fragranced so if you are looking for something SANS FRAGRANCE, this ain’t for you
Here is another expensive Lancome product but DO NOT FEAR. This bottle is actually so big it will take you forever to finish so it isn’t TOO expensive when you break it down. This is such a great product to prep your skin and it definitely helps with smoothing as well. What helps with the “smoothing” effect is because this contains glycolic acid which is a chemical exfoliant but what I love most about this one in particular is that it’s REALLY GENTLE. Even more gentle than the toner that I recommended last season (REN’s glycolic toner where I warned everyone it’s a good product but it ain’t for the weak). If the expensive Lancome serum/cream I recommended above isn’t it for you, give this one a try first!!
I love using reusable cotton pads for my toners (if it doesn’t have a spray) so I don’t feel too guilty when I apply it! I haven’t used these EXACT ONES but in case you are looking for some, here it is!
THIS CLEANSING BALM IS AMAZING especially for those who have super dry skin. This cleansing balm DOES remove everything (you can watch my first impression here) but I will say that you definitely have to take your time especially if you have put on things like waterproof mascara, lash glue, magnetic lash liner, etc. For the light stuff, it removes SO QUICKLY but for the heavy stuff, it takes a bit of time. That being said though, nothing beats not being stripped away from all your oils so if you are looking for something hydrating, THIS ONE IS IT.
A few days ago someone had asked me on Insta stories “what to wear when your sneaky link comes over” and I know they meant to ask about clothing but if I had to answer this question with one make-up product it is this one. This is the most SULTRY eyeshadow that is perfect for night time/fall time. You can also use the lighter colours for a basic/neutral/everyday look.
What I also love about this palette is that it’s small, simple, and has all the necessary colours. I absolutely HATE eyeshadow palettes that are super big and I can’t carry with me when I travel. This one is the perfect size and already has everything you need!!!!
(also pair this with the face palette I recommended last season and YOU ARE GOLDEN)
I couldn’t recommend this eyeshadow last season because they didn’t offer it at Sephora but THEY ARE NOW SO GET IT BEFORE IT IS GONE!!!!!
This product has actually been a favourite of mine since I started YouTube (aka YEARS AGO) but I started picking it up again and I was reminded of how much I would give my soul for this product. Because I test so many make-up products, I had moved on from it but honestly this is probably my 4th bottle in my lifetime. A lot of people use this as a “primer” before foundation, but personally, I use it alone with no additional foundation on top because it already has a tint and gives the best glow. If you are looking for a really light tint and not a heavy make-up look, LOOK NO FURTHER!!! This also gives you the best type of glow as though a unicorn just birthed you. Idk what that looks like but I assume it’s this.
For my people who like heavier coverage, this concealer IS IT. This concealer covers everything except shame, guilt, and anxiety but otherwise, it will cover it. This is by no means “new” but it is definitely another oldie but goodie. The concealer is not drying and it is so creamy & blendable but at the same time the creasing is minimal!
If you’re thinking “Lisa, you already recommended this product last season”… you are ACTUALLY KINDA RIGHT BUT KINDA WRONG LOL. I’ve been raving about this mascara for a whole ass year but my ONE COMPLAINT was it did not come in waterproof. Well ladies, our (or maybe just mine lmao) prayers have been answered because they just released the waterproof version and it is soooooo good.
This item is 10000% worth the hype and I was able to buy it last sale before it got super hyped up but I think it’s completely out of stock. Leaving this here anyway in case you guys get lucky!!
My favourite thing about this lip tint oil is that it’s hydrating but it gives off more colour than the Dior lip oil. This is still fairly light so if you are someone that likes matte lipsticks/heavy opaque colour, this isn’t for you. But for those of you (like me) that like to apply my lip products without looking in the mirror and doing it on the go, THIS ONE IS GREAT. The colour that I have for everyday is “AU NATUREL” but I also recently got FALCON which is a deep brown. I like to use FALCON on top of some of my lighter shade lipsticks to give it a darker tint so it has the ability to make any of my lipsticks look fall/winter!
If you guys know me/have been following for awhile, you’ll know I’m 100% a gloss > lipstick person and this season’s lipstick fave is by Tower 28. Also an Asian owned business (this does not make me biassed because the results and other reviews speak for themselves!). The colour I have is super red and the other is clear so I’ll be trying a different shade this time round.
I bought this brow set initially because you just cannot beat the price. But after using it for a few months, I have to say I am super in love with every product in this set and it is ONCE AGAIN, SUCH A FINANCIAL STEAL!!!!
I have this in colour 4 medium and I’m going to order it again this time!
If you like your body lotion scented then this is the one for you. Not only is it scented and you can smell like watermelon, but also it’s hydrating yet not thick enough that you have to spend hours trying to spread the lotion out like the two above! I leave this one on my bathroom counter for guests so they can also use this as a light hand lotion.
I already said this on YouTube and I will gladly say it again but this is probably my favourite body exfoliator I have ever used. There’s currently little to no reviews on it because KEYS as a brand JUST arrived to Sephora and this is the time to take advantage before everyone else catches on.
This has removed my KP bumps better than any other exfoliator I have ever used. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
The following body products are my FAVOURITE body washes and lotions (will continue to replenish again and again!) because they are formulated with no parabens, sulfates, etc, so GREAT for your body. Both brands limit the amount of harsh chemicals and even if the product is scented, it is lightly scented or they have even chosen scents that make it smell like a spa (eg. eucalyptus)
I know last season we broke the internet with what we collectively coined “THE UBER DRIVER PERFUME” and you guys had LOVED it so much we literally SOLD IT OUT LOL.
The scent this season that gives off SIMILAR vibes but still different would be this one right here. For me, this scent was love at first sight. I smelt it and I KNEW I needed to have it. I’ll be buying the travel version!
If you watch my Instagram stories then you will know my obsession with candles. This candle in the scent “fireplace” is probably the FASTEST I’ve ever burnt a candle. The scent literally smells like you’re by a campfire/fireplace but in the most subtle, appealing way. Unlike Diptyque candles, because this one smells super “natural” (in a sense that it really brings up a MEMORY because of the familiarity being near a fireplace), I LOVE lighting this especially in the evening and it gives me such a sense of calm because of the earthiness. I also feel like this scent is super androgynous so if you are looking for a luxury candle for men, this also works!
I’m not gonna lie to you… when I first got this product I was a bit confused because Maison Margiela fragrances distinguish their scents from “female, male, female and male, MEMORY” and I was thinking… what the heck is “memory”. When I got the “fireplace” scent in both the candle and spray, the candle made sense to me because it was almost like creating a setting or a memory in my space. But in a spray, it confused me at first. Until I started using it more and more especially in the evenings. Even on myself. I find that not only would this be SUCH A GREAT SCENT FOR A DUDE but even on me, I LOVE that it helps me emit such a earthy, calming scent. This is probably one of the only fragrances I will say this about but… this is one where I love smelling myself without getting tired of. Most other perfumes, I spray almost because I know I will smell good to others. This one, I’ve been using it just for me.
Will you look at that… I even have a fragrance here for dudes. I actually got sent this which is how I was able to smell it and it smelt SOOOOOO GOOD. I gave this to my brother and he absolutely adores it. He even carries it around on his carry-on when he travels even though it’s on the bigger side (to give you an idea of just how good this is!!!)
If you have blonde hair or have bleached your hair blonde… THIS IS THE BEST LEAVE-IN TREATMENT. It will leave your hair extremely soft!!! Highly recommend.
For my non-blondes who also have dry hair (maybe because of the weather, winter, or if you swim a lot!) THIS ONE is such a great leave-in treatment and you can put this on before you go to bed. You’ll wake up with softer hair!!!!
This is a PRE shampoo and the way I see it is if you exfoliate your body, why wouldn’t you want to exfoliate/clean your scalp? After I started using this product, my hair started lasting longer between washes without getting super oily quickly because it helps remove a lot of build up!!!
When I posted my Dyson hair first impression on Reels and TikTok, everyone kept asking what oil I put on top of my hair and it is this one! Works similar to the one I recommended last season but this one’s scent is not as strong so if you are looking for a hair oil that doesn’t have such a strong fragrance, this one is perfect!
GIFT/VALUE SETS THAT ARE SUPER WORTH IT!!!
Products where I’ve tried everything in them and their VALUE SET price is amazing!!!
