I love the fall Sephora sale because all the holiday gift sets are out! This is a great opportunity to save on products used frequently while trying new products. The gift sets are my favourite picks for the sale because you get to save twice - once on the gift set bundle price and then once again with your fall sale discount.
I made a reel with my top picks for gift sets under $25 here: https://www.instagram.com/reel/CHMP45ZgP33/
I picked up some tried and tested favourites as well as a few new items!
Tatcha Rice Wash and Dewy Skin Duo - $33 ($47 value)
I love Tatcha products. The items are all high quality and have such beautiful packaging. I currently use the water cream and silk peony eye cream. The water cream is super nice and light, but since I have dry skin and the weather is getting much colder I am looking for a more hydrating day cream. This set came with a mini dewy skin cream and mini rice wash cleanser. Looking forward to testing out this duo!
Caudalie Hand Cream Trio - $24 (special edition)
This is a tried and tested winter favourite. My hands are always dry, along with my lips and the cold and dry fall/winter weather makes it so much worse. I love that these hand creams are small because they can fit nicely in a winter coat pocket. They are very thick and moisturizing. This set came with 3 different scents. I take them on the go for errands and keep the other two close to my desk and bed.
Mario Badescu the Icons Duo - $25 ($32 value)
I first tried Mario Badescu products almost 10 years ago. I love that they use real ingredients. They are pretty new to being sold on Sephora and I've been wanting to try these two products for a long time. It came with a rose water toner and drying lotion. The change of weather, extra sugar and life stress has caused me to break out a bit. Looking forward to zapping those pimples with the drying cream.
Jack Black Lip Lock Duo - $18 ($22 value)
These lip blams have been on my holy grail products list for years. They normally retail for $11 each so this is a great deal! The two flavours it came with are mint which is nice and tingly and cucumber lime which smells so good. I like to have 4 of these on hand a time. I keep one in my purse, one in the bathroom, one by the bed and one by my desk. That's how dry my lips are!
Malin + Goetz 200 point reward
This duo came with a 30ml grapefruit face cleanser and 30ml vitamin E face moisturizer. I was introduced to the brand earlier this year through Causebox and will save this reward for later in the winter!
Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Face Butter 100 point reward
I tried the whipped body butter a few years ago and loved it! Looking forward to trying the face cream to help with my super dry winter skin!
I also got two samples, a Chloe perfume sample and a Dr. Jart toner and moisturizer.
With discount, the total haul came out to $90. I feel pretty happy with the purchase so far and am looking forward to trying everything in more detail. Are you picking up anything from the Sephora sale? Let me know on instagram at @shylareviews https://www.instagram.com/shylareviews/
