The Sephora spring sale is right around the corner.
It’s been more than 30 days since I started self-isolating during this pandemic. I feel incredibly blessed to be able to work remote and continue earning a paycheck. I know that is not the norm for millions of Americans right now. My blog has always been an escape from my full-time job for several years. Now, during a pandemic I think my blog has also become an escape for my readers.
During these uncertain times, I won’t be splurging on a bunch of products like I have in the past. There are a few products on my wish list and then I need to restock on a couple of items. This is my first time being able to shop as a Rouge member (I reached the spend threshold last year).
I also want to mention, I submitted my application for the 2020 Sephora Squad and could use your help! If I’ve ever inspired you to purchase a beauty product via my blog or social media or shared helpful beauty tips and tricks, then please submit a testimonial for me here. It will only take a few minutes of your time and it doesn’t cost you anything! This is a great way to help a small blogger like myself.
If you have the means to shop online and need a little retail therapy, I’ve highlighted my Sephora spring sale beauty recommendations. I’ve categorized my recommendations by skincare, everyday makeup and clean beauty; most of them have a quarantine lifestyle in mind. All of my recommendations are products I have paid for myself.

What is the Sephora Spring Sale?
A couple times a year, Sephora offers a site wide discount for Beauty Insider members. The discount percentages vary between membership levels but essentially, the more you spend at Sephora during the calendar year, then the more you save.
If you are not currently a Beauty Insider member, then you can sign up here. It’s completely free to join and you’ll get the 10% discount. There are more benefits to becoming a member that you can check out below.
Below is a quick breakdown of the tiered discounts and dates for the Sephora spring sale. The promo code is the same for all members: use code SPRINGSAVE

Sephora Spring Sale Recommendations
Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask: Prior to discovering this, I was using Vaseline on my lips before bed. Don’t get me wrong, I still love my Vaseline but this is luxurious treat for your lips. It comes with a tiny brush (so you can scoop out product without having to dip your finger in the jar) and after a good night’s sleep, you wake up to healthy, glowing lips. I also like the Lip Glowy Balm (in Berry or Pear).
Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40: ‘Tis the season for sunscreen (even if we’re quarantined). If you frequently take walks or go for a run to clear you head, then you still need some SPF. I like this one from Supergoop because it feels weightless and wear well under makeup.
Tarte Tartelette Tease Eyeshadow Palette: This has been a long-time everyday eyeshadow palette. There are six neutral powders, organized from light to dark. The darker shades are highly pigmented. I know some may not be wearing much eye makeup these days in quarantine; however, if you’re looking for a petite everyday eyeshadow palette, this is only $19 before the discount.
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer: This is my favorite concealer to cover up redness, dark circles and immediately brighten the under eye area. I wear the lightest shade, Chantilly, and always restock during a sale because it is pricey. It has a radiant finish so if that doesn’t work for you and you have oily skin, try the Soft Matte Concealer (I have that too and it offers great coverage).
Benefit Hoola Matte Bronzer: This has been my go-to bronzer for several years. They expanded the shade ranges to include caramel (medium deep) and toasted (deep). For me, the Hoola Lite (perfect for porcelain skin types) shade adds warmth to my face without looking orange.
Fenty Gloss Bomb: If you’re working from home and taking Zoom conference calls left and right, then you’ll probably appreciate a good lip gloss right now. This Fenty lip gloss has shea butter so it will continuously keep your lips hydrated and the shades are so gorgeous. I own this shimmering pink shade, but it also comes in clear, shimmering pearl, rich brown and rose nude shades.
Kosas Tinted Face Oil Foundation: Here’s a clean foundation I have tried and liked. It offers lightweight coverage to cover up any redness and uneven skin tone. It’s like the clean version of my Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint.
Indie Lee CoQ-10 Toner: I really like this alcohol-free toner. It’s hydrating and soothing on skin after you cleanse. I like to soak some on a cotton pad and apply all over my face but you can also spritz over your face after exercising for a quick refresh.
Ren AHA Body Serum: I’m really into body creams and serums right now and I would be remiss to not share this product recommendation. This designed to naturally exfoliate your skin, leaving you with a healthy natural glow. This formula has a tingling sensation but nothing that feels remotely uncomfortable—just make sure you don’t apply it on your face, neck or décolletage!
Drunk Elephant Marula Face Oil: OK, this face oil is expensive but I received a deluxe sample size when I purchased the Sukari Babyfacial and I just love how soft and hydrated my skin feels when I use this after exfoliating. I have really dry skin and this works very well; however, I only recommend using it at night because I’m not sure it would wear well under makeup.
