Below, I have curated a list of my personally-vetted, all-time-favorite products to buy at Sephora. They are all things that I OWN, USE, and LOVE.
I get sent a lot of products, and I try a lot of products (I have a Sephora section in my apartment). I’ve seen it all! And as always I am very thankful anytime you choose to shop with my links -> I make a small commission and it keeps KATWALKSF going.
So, without further ado, here’s my list of picks for the Sephora Savings Event.
I am a BIG fan of the SEPHORA COLLECTION Best Skin Ever Liquid Foundation. It’s $20 (+30% off), it has over 500 reviews and it is a staple in my makeup routine -> mix it with the Iconic London Illuminator Liquid Highlight and you will be GLOWING.

I’d go straight to the Nécessaire – The Body Ritual Set. This set has all my Nécessaire favorites: the body wash, the body lotion, the body exfoliator, and the body serum in a travel-friendly size at a great price. An excellent introduction to the brand.
Are you suffering from dry hands thanks to the constant use of hand sanitizer? SAME. The nécessaire hand cream is THE BEST. This fast-absorbing, daily moisturizer with peptides and multi-vitamins is just what the doctor ordered!
and if you don’t have at least one Donna Karen cashmere mist deodorant in your basket are we even homies?
The Clarins Double Serum Complete Anti-Aging Concentrate is a SPLURGE, but a worthy splurge at that. This two-in-one formula with 21 potent plant extracts, including turmeric, for visibly smoother, firmer, more radiant skin—now in a luxury size (+ the discount). Not ready to make the splurge? Try the Clarins Skincare Essentials Kit. In addition to the serum, it also has the cult favorite V-Facial Intensive Wrap Mask.
OLAPLEX OLAPLEX OLAPLEX -> stock up on OLAPLEX this is a MUST!
the new OLAPLEX purple shampoo is on the top of my wishlist
AQUIS-> this super light and comfortable hair towel will reduce hair drying time by up to 50 percent! You read that right! This towel is PURE magic and makes an excellent gift for that one person on your list that is impossible to shop for.

next up ->
KÉRASTASE Blond Absolu Heat Protecting Serum -> this is my holy grail heat protectant. This one is only for the blondes -> and I guarantee that this lightweight, heat-protecting primer will give you flawless blonde results.
followed by ->
KÉRASTASE Mousse Bouffante Volumizing Hair Mousse -> I know what is it 1983?!? I thought the same thing when my stylist told me that he was putting it in my hair, but trust and believe this is a product that you NEED. Put a golf size amount in your palm, work it in all over your hair, and this volumizing mousse plumps from your roots to your ends! It gives you flexible movement, UV protection, and heat protection with a soft feel.
Dry Shampoo -> for the days when you just don’t want to wash your hair
