Sephora Sale Picks
Shani Darden Retinol Reform
Shani Darden Retinol Reform has just arrived at Sephora—and you probably already know that it's one of my favourite retinoid treatments. I got amazing results (like clearer, brighter skin!) from its potent combination of retinol and lactic acid. It's also silicone-free and oil-free.
*This product was recently reformulated. Previously, it had five percent each of retinyl propionate and lactic acid. Now it's got 2.2 percent "encapsulated retinol"—of which the actual retinol won't be more than one percent, since that's the maximum allowable concentration in Canada—and two percent lactic acid. So probably still on the stronger side, but I will be testing it out and updating this review!
Sobel Skin Rx 4.5% Retinol Night Treatment
Sobel Skin Rx 4.5% Retinol Night Treatment is a new retinoid to consider, featuring retinol as well as a next-generation retinoic acid ester. The latter produces little to no irritation, even though it's one of the strongest forms of vitamin A found over-the-counter. This is a silicone-free, aloe vera-based lotion.
*Sephora.com only. On Sephora.ca, Retinol Reform is your best choice.
Summer Fridays CC Me Serum
Vitamin C and niacinamide are two of the best ingredients for brightening, and you'll find both in Summer Fridays CC Me Serum. I've been using this for the past few months, and it's definitely helped to fade post-acne marks while boosting hydration and glow.
Sobel Skin Rx 15% Niacinamide Gel Serum
At 15 percent, Sobel Skin Rx 15% Niacinamide Gel Serum boasts one of the highest concentrations of niacinamide on the market. That gives it the texture of a gel, as well as the ability to improve just about every skin concern. Think: dullness, fine lines, large pores and so much more!
*Sephora.com only. On Sephora.ca, the niacinamide I recommend is The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%, although it's not included in the sale.
REN Clean Screen Mattifying Face Sunscreen SPF 30
REN Clean Screen Mattifying Face Sunscreen SPF 30 is one of my top sunscreen picks, and perfect if you hate SPF with a heavy, greasy feel. This one is super lightweight and dries down matte, all the while giving you high UVA and UVB protection with 22 percent zinc oxide.
Foreo Luna 2 for Combination Skin
I'm always recommending the Foreo Luna 2 for Combination Skin, a non-irritating silicone cleansing brush that both deep-cleans and gently exfoliates. There is a newer version, the Luna 3, but I hear the app is annoying—so I recommend sticking with this "low-tech" version!
Indie Lee Discovery Kit
I love so many products from Indie Lee that it's impossible to pick a favourite, so if you're new to the line, the Indie Lee Discovery Kit is probably the best way to get started. You get a mini brightening cleanser, toner mist and squalane oil, all of which are suitable for any skin type and made with ultra-clean ingredients.
Dr Roebuck’s Stoked Weightless Face Moisturizer
If you've got oily skin or are looking to lighten up your moisturizer for the warmer weather ahead, consider Dr Roebuck's Stoked Weightless Face Moisturizer. It's made with minimal ingredients—no oils or silicones—and feels so light and fresh on your skin. (You also can't go wrong with any other product from this brand!)
*Sephora.com only. On Sephora.ca, try Farmacy Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer.
LXMI Crème du Nil Pore-Refining Moisture Veil
For more intensive hydration, LXMI Crème du Nil Pore-Refining Moisture Veil is unmatched in its ability to nourish and repair, thanks to its high concentration of Nilotica shea butter. A little goes a long way, so even oilier types can use this if you just apply a small amount. Skin feels supple and looks dewy!
BeautyBio GloPRO Microneedling Regeneration Tool
Microneedling isn't as scary as you might think, with the BeautyBio GloPRO Microneedling Regeneration Tool. I like this device because of its safe, shallow needles, which are replaceable, and the fact that it emits both red light and microcurrent. Expect it to help your actives penetrate more deeply (so they'll be more effective), and over time, it can even boost collagen.
Youth to the People Superfood Cleanser
Youth to the People Superfood Cleanser is one of the best cleansers I've ever used. It's a gentle, sulfate-free gel that doesn't dry out your skin or leave it feeling tight. I love that it comes in a glass bottle with a pump, and you get a lot of product for the price.
Tower 28 SOS (Save.Our.Skin) Daily Rescue Facial Spray
Tower 28 SOS (Save.Our.Skin) Daily Rescue Facial Spray is a unique face mist with hypochlorous acid, a naturally-occurring compound that fights bacteria and encourages wound healing. That means it can help prevent redness and breakouts when spritzed on bare skin underneath moisturizer. Plus, it only has three ingredients in total, making it perfect for sensitive skin.
NuFace Trinity Facial Toning Device
If firmer skin is one of your goals, the NuFace Trinity Facial Toning Device is truly worth it. It emits a painless microcurrent that stimulates and strengthens your face muscles, resulting in a tighter, more lifted look. The only catch? You need to use it on a regular basis (at least three times a week) to maintain the benefits.
Omorovicza Complexion Perfector
Finally, a tinted moisturizer that's good for your skin and has the perfect tint and coverage! Omorovicza Complexion Perfector may be on the pricier side, but you're going to fall in love with this silicone-free formula, which comes in four shades. I use Light in the summertime, and just invested in Fair to wear right now!
Kosas 10-Second Liquid Eyeshadow
I've always loved a good neutral shimmery shadow, and Kosas 10-Second Liquid Eyeshadow in Globe is all I want to wear these days. What's amazing about this formula is that even though it's clean, it really doesn't crease or slide around once it sets. And it's so easy to blend in place with the wand or a fingertip.
Lilah B. Tinted Lip Balm
Lilah B. Tinted Lip Balm is one of the best new additions to my tinted lip balm rotation. Not only is the packaging super luxe, but it also gives you long-lasting, non-drying colour with a subtle (not glossy) sheen. Of the three shades, Cheeky, the sheer red, is my top pick.
Caudalie Nourishing Body Lotion
I believe your body lotion should be just as non-toxic as your face moisturizer, since it's covering a way larger surface area. Newly reformulated Caudalie Nourishing Body Lotion ticks off my boxes. The brand has ditched the unstable grape seed oil from the original formula, so now it's made with coconut fatty acids, glycerin, grape water and shea butter (and no silicone or mineral oil).
Deborah Lippmann Get Off Callus Softener Intensive Treatment
Sandal season is fast approaching, and Deborah Lippmann Get Off Callus Softener Intensive Treatment is my latest find for getting soft, smooth feet at home. Anyone who deals with calluses or dry heels should try it—you just spray it on, wait five minutes, and then buff off the dead skin with a foot file. This is an excellent alternative to acid foot peels, as the results are instant (and you won't be shedding for a week!).
Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides
I can't live without my Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides, which I stir into lattés and smoothies daily. Not only are they a good source of protein, but you're also getting the full spectrum of amino acids to help balance your diet and discourage inflammation. I can attest that these have made a huge difference with the strength and length of my nails, and also help with skin and hair health.
*Sephora.com only. In Canada, you can find them on Well.ca!
Bumble and Bumble Bb. Color Stick
Bumble and Bumble Bb. Color Stick is essential for in between hair colour appointments. It's a twist-up crayon that instantly covers all shades of regrowth, and since the formula is water-resistant, it will stay put until you're ready to shampoo it out. So much easier and less messy than root cover-up sprays and powders!
Together Beauty Sugar Wave Texturizing Spray
Together Beauty Sugar Wave Texturizing Spray is from a high-performance clean haircare brand that recently landed at Sephora. It's 98 percent natural, and uses sugar (not the usual salt) to create a non-sticky beachy texture. I'm intrigued by the rest of the line, too, which includes a number of innovative styling products!
