I recently shared with you guys My Sephora Must-Haves so I don’t want to have too much overlap between posts but I did want to tell you about the upcoming Sephora VIB Sale. If you have no idea what I am talking about, let me first tell you about the Sephora Beauty Insider Program.
The program features three tiers based on your yearly Sephora spending – Insider, which is free, VIB if you spend at least $350, and Rouge if you spend $1000 or more – with varying perks. Beauty Insiders earn 1 point to 1 dollar spent, VIB members earn 1.25 points for every dollar spent and Rouge members earn 1.5. There is also the Rewards Bazaar where there are multiple choices of rewards (generous sized deluxe sample) worth varying amounts of points. It is free to enrol in the Beauty Insider Program and you can do so in-store, online, or on the app.
Now that I’ve explain that, I will tell you that Sephora typically has two big sales throughout the year – one in the fall and one in the spring and they are called the Sephora VIB Sales. During the sale you are entitled to a certain percentage off your order total based on which tier of the Insider Program you are on. Beauty Insiders receive 10% off, VIBs receive 15% off, and Rouge members receive 20% off. I will list the discount codes and the dates each tier has to shop the sale at the bottom of this post, so keep reading to find out!
A lot of “beauty gurus” like to compile a list before each of the sales to share what they are planning to purchase during the sale. I haven’t decided yet if I will be shopping the sale as I just had a mini Sephora spree recently and grabbed the things I was really lusting after but I thought I would put up my wish list to share with you a few things that I think would be good to grab during the sale!
Farmacy The Mighties – A set of five super powered formulas featuring antioxidants and potent natural ingredients to nourish day and night for glowing, healthy looking skin. The only thing that I have tried from this brand is their cleansing balm (Green Clean, included in this kit) but I have always been drawn to their products. I love starter kits or kits of minis because they are a good chance to try a few different products for a value price before committing to the full size. (Retails for $58 CDN)
This set contains:
– 0.4 oz/ 12 mL Green Clean makeup meltaway cleansing balm
– 0.5 oz/ 15 mL Honey Drop lightweight moisturizer
– 0.5 oz/ 15 mL Sleep Tight firming night balm
– 0.5 oz/ 15 mL Honey Potion renewing antioxidant hydration mask
– 0.03 oz/ 1 ml Dew It All total eye cream
Herbivore Balance + Clarify Natural Skincare Mini Collection – A truly natural, skin perfecting kit that balances with blue tansy, floral waters, and green tea while clarifying with fruit acids, aloe, and willow. This set contains my ride-or-die Lapis oil that I have raved about in multiple posts and another favourite of mine, the Blue Tansy Mask. This brand is excellent and everything I’ve tried from them I’ve loved. (Retails for $62 CDN)
This set contains:
– 2 oz/ 60 mL Jasmine Green Tea Balancing Toner
– 0.5 oz/ 14 mL Blue Tansy AHA + BHA Resurfacing Clarity Mask
– 0.25 oz/ 8 mL Lapis Balancing Facial Oil
– 0.3 oz/ 10 mL Prism Exfoliating Glow Potion
Drunk Elephant A-Passioni Retinol Cream – A clean, cutting-edge formula with one percent vegan retinol and superfood-rich ingredients to diminish the look of fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage. Retinol and supportive peptides restore bounce, resilience, and clarity to skin while helping to even tone and texture without redness and irritation. Vitamin F and a curated blend of oils replenish lipids and moisture while antioxidant-packed ingredients defend against environmental stressors. This is a natural, clean retinol alternative and I have been really considering adding a retinol to my skincare routine! (Retails for $92 CDN)
Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels – Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels work intensively to help firm, de-puff, and reduce the premature visible wrinkling that accompanies a high-adrenaline lifestyle. Elastin helps to firm and tone, while peptides work to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, gingko biloba improves blood flow and helps reduce dark circles, and advanced antioxidants prevent future damage. I have been wanting to try some sort of eye gels or mask forever now and I think these would be a great option! (Retail for $18-$33 CND)
Hair Care —
Briogeo Scalp Revival Charcoal + Peppermint Oil Cooling Jelly Conditioner – An innovative jelly conditioner that combines peppermint, tea tree, and spearmint oils to calm the scalp with an invigorating cooling sensation, while binchotan charcoal helps absorb deep rooted impurities. I tried this conditioner when I had a deluxe sample and instantly fell in love with the cooling sensation it gives off. I actually had a migraine at the time when I used it and knowing that peppermint often helps I thought this may help too and it did! (Retails for $47 CDN)
– Soothes itchy, flaky scalp with an instant cooling sensation
– Detoxifies and removes buildup from the scalp
– Hydrates the scalp and hair with a lightweight formula
Drybar Triple Sec 3-in-1 – Triple Sec 3-in-1 is the instant volume and texture refresher. Perfect for refreshing limp locks, it provides soft, matte texture for a perfectly-tousled look. It amplifies flat hair for intense volume and fullness, and absorbs light oils, leaving hair feeling fresh and clean. This product is a multitasker and works great as a dry shampoo; although it’s not an entirely “clean” product, it does not contain propane or butane (see my Empties post to learn more about that) so it’s still something I would use. (Retails for $16-$33 CND)
T3 Singlepass Curl 1.25″ Professional Ceramic Curling Iron – Digital SinglePass technology ensures even, optimal heat along the barrel, which is the secret to one-pass styling and long-lasting results without exposing hair to unnecessary heat. When heated, the unique T3 Tourmaline and ceramic styling surface emits negative ions that seal the cuticle, eliminate frizz, and deliver shiny results that last. I have been eyeing this curling iron for foreverrrrr but just can’t bring myself to drop the $200 on it; if you’re like me in that sense, the VIB sale would be a good time to save a little money on this highly raved about curling iron! (Retails for $200 CND)
Tatcha The Silk Canvas Protective Primer – This multitasking skin-protecting, makeup-perfecting primer is for face, eyes, and lips. Silk extracts feel nourishing on skin and diminish the look of pores, fines lines, and imperfections for the perfect canvas before makeup. Silk powder makes makeup glide on more evenly and last longer, minimizing excess shine with a soft focus finish. A protective layer derived from botanicals acts as a barrier between makeup and skin, helping to prevent clogged pores that can lead to breakouts. I have read SO many positive reviews for this primer that it’s hard not to want to pick it up! There is a mini size and the full size so there’s a couple of different options; personally I would probably grab the mini size just because I like to try things out before committing to the full size (and their prices). (Retails for $25-$63)
Lawless The One Eyeshadow Palette – A go-to palette for any occasion, with 18 gorgeous shades in a variety of finishes, ranging from staple neutrals to bold pops of color, all included in magnetic pans. In My Sephora Must-Haves I talk about my current favourite eyeshadow palette and I am not one to really have multiples but this palette caught my eye when it launched recently and I just think it’s so gorgeous. It is also certified clean and non-toxic so that’s a big plus too!! (Retails for $82 CND)
Too Faced Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Sculpting Concealer – This hydrating, buildable, multitasking concealer masks imperfections, smooths, and sculpts skin for natural-looking coverage. It’s infused with coconut water, alpine rose, and hyaluronic acid—skin-loving ingredients that come together for crease-free, weightless wear that’s so naturally flawless they’ll think you were born this way. All of the products in the Born This Way range are very highly reviewed and this concealer is no different; I have been on the hunt for a new concealer for awhile now and I think this one is a great option! It also has the most product for the price in comparison to many other high end concealers. (Retails for $36 CND)
It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream With SPF 50+ – This color-correcting cream provides full, flawless coverage and protects skin with SPF 50+ UVA/UVB broad-spectrum physical sunscreen. It is clinically shown to increase hydration, smooth texture, and enhance brightness. I have used this product a few times over the years and each time I do I ask myself “why did I ever stop using this?!”; it has the lightweight feel of a BB or CC cream but has the BEST coverage. It melts right into the skin and doesn’t settle in any fine lines or creases. I usually set this product with a bit of powder as I tend to get oily throughout the day, but it does have great staying power. (Retails for $14-$49 CND)
Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Setting Powder – This silky loose powder works all day to reduce shine and blur the look of pores, fines lines, and imperfections for a hyper-smooth filter that won’t flash black. Eight versatile shades melt into your unique skin tone, letting you set, perfect, and brighten without caking or settling. I recently picked this up in the shade Lavender and although I have not used it long enough to give a review, it truly is a gorgeous powder. The shade I bought is for brightening and is great to use under the eyes to set concealer; if you’re super fair like me you can even use it to set your whole face and it does not come off looking lavender whatsoever just very bright and blurred. There are 7 other shades in this powder as well so it can work for many different skin tones. (Retails for $23-$40 CND)
Urban Decay Perversion Mascara – Perversion glides on easily to instantly create sexy lashes. It has a creamy, full-bodied texture that is not too dry and not too wet to allow just the right amount of pull as it glides through lashes. This formula is not sticky or clumpy, and it contains Hairdensyl, a complex blend of proteins and amino acids that are known to stimulate lash growth. I’ve been wanting to try this mascara for a long time but just can’t ever seem to spend the money on it; I have found many drugstore mascaras that I love over the years that are much cheaper than this so I usually stick to those but this one does sound amazing! (Retails for $18-$31 CND)
Ellis Brooklyn Fawn Eau De Parfum – Like sun-warmed skin, a breeze of spring citrus, and the addictive milky tones of coconut, Fawn is inspired by coming of age novels—how memorable and lingering they are—and the sweet innocence and underlying sexuality of growing up. The notes of this fragrance are bergamot, coconut milk, and musk – yum!! I have had this on my “loves” list for a long time but have yet to grab it. The VIB Sale is the perfect time to grab those items that are a bit more expensive that you wouldn’t regularly want to spend the money on. I am a perfume junkie (well let’s face it, I am an all-things-beauty junkie really🤪) and would love to add this one to my collection! (Retails for $40-$110 CND)
