Sephora Spring Sale: Dates, Discount Codes & Recommendations

Sharing my everyday makeup, skincare and clean beauty recommendations for the Sephora spring sale

The Sephora spring sale is right around the corner! If you have Rouge status with Sephora, you’ll have first access to the sale. Plus, Sephora is giving Rouge members the ability to “bring a plus one” to early access.

I’ve rounded up my top 12 everyday makeup and skincare products for this post. The Sephora Sale may be a good time to treat yourself, try a new product you’ve been eyeing or restock on old favorites.

This is also a PSA not to overspend. It’s really easy to get swept up in the hype and convince yourself you’re missing out on some holy grail product but the bottom line is, the product will always be there.

Sephora Spring Savings Event beauty picks for the everyday minimalist


The Inkey List Succinic Acid Acne Treatment: This is my go-to for my hormonal acne breakouts. You can apply it up to three times a day but I found that just using it once on clean skin before bed significantly reduces its appearance by morning.

Makeup by Mario Perfecting Lip Scrub: This is my favorite lip scrub, mostly because I don’t have to dig my fingers into a jar. I use this 2-3x per week before applying lipstick and I think it’s gentle enough that it doesn’t irritate my skin but effective that my lips are much more smooth and less flaky.

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask:  A leave-on lip mask that 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 have the original berry scent but it comes in four other flavors.

Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40: ‘Tis the season for sunscreen; well, it’s always the season for sunscreen but especially now. This is my favorite invisible sunscreen that also doubles as a makeup gripping primer.

Laneige Cream Skin Toner & Moisturizer: I have a travel size version of this two-in-one skincare product. It’s both reasonable and price and perfect for keeping skin refreshed and hydrated during the spring and summer months.

Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser: I’m thrilled that Glossier is finally available at Sephora! I’ve been using this gentle cleanser for 5+ years. For minimal makeup days this is equal parts gentle and effective.


Tower 28 MakeWaves Lengthening + Volumizing Mascara: I finally found a mascara that does it all. The wand is slightly curved, making it easy to apply for my almond shaped eyes. Without mascara, my lashes look puny and short so the lengthening and volume really does make a difference.

Merit Flush Balm Cream Blush: A cream blush for the low key makeup minimalist who wants a natural looking flush. Easy to apply with fingers or brush and available in eight shades. Apres, Beverly Hills and Stockholm are my favorites.

Summer Fridays Sheer Skin Tint: Evens out skin tone and minimizes redness but make sure you exfoliate and moisturizer beforehand. I prefer this over a myriad of other skin tints I’ve tried simply because it doesn’t irritate or cause breakouts for my sensitive skin.

Merit Bronzer Stick: This oval shaped bronzer stick goes on smooth and takes seconds to blend. It’s creamy but dries down beautifully. Available in five shades.

Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Shadow: For an easy “one and done” eyeshadow look. Goes on super smooth, easy to blend and absolutely no budging. Comes in shimmer, matte and metallic finishes. I have Amethyst (soft mauve with shimmer finish) and Au Naturel (matte nude).

Glossier Ultralip: It’s the trifecta of all lip products: the moisture of a balm, the shine of a gloss and the pigment of a lipstick. Villa is great for everyday wear and Fete, Portrait and Coupe are fun bright shades for spring and summer.

Here’s what I’m planning to buy during the sale:

Merit Shade Slick Gelee Sheer Tinted Lip Oil (Interested in the shades Les Deux and Maraschino)
Benefit Dandelion Blush (restock)
Glossier Super Bounce (restock)
Tower 28 OneLiner Lip Liner + Eyeliner + Cheek Pencil
