Have you heard? Sephora just rolled out improvements to its customer loyalty program—and to celebrate, nearly everything on the site is on sale!

Through September 3, you can score up to 20 percent off both in store and online. Plus, members now earn points faster and enjoy better rewards. 

It's great timing, because Sephora recently added a Clean Beauty department, as well as tons of new brands. There are so many products I've been dying to try, so I'm very excited to take advantage of these discounts!

Sephora Skincare Tool Picks

Sephora skincare tools from Foreo, NuFace and PMD.

  • Cleansing brushes: The Foreo Luna 2 is such a worthwhile investment, as it deep-cleans your skin without any irritation and won't harbour bacteria. It also comes in smaller sizes, such as the Foreo Luna Mini, at a lower price point.
  • Lip plumpers: The PMD Kiss Lip Plumping System (reviewed here) is an alternative to lip fillers, and uses suction technology to increase lip volume. It's a fun little gadget!
