It’s here! Sephora’s Holiday Savings Event starts today. This only happens twice a year so it’s a great time to stock up on favorites, get some holiday gifts and try a new product you’ve had your eye on. I’m breaking down all my top picks in today’s post for skincare, makeup and my favorite beauty tools. First things first, here’s the deets on the sale:

What I’m Buying

I seriously get panicked when I run out of this stuff from Indie Lee. It’s just a true lifesaver for me when I get headaches or have sore muscles. I always stock up when it goes on sale. 

Grace actually turned me on to this body serum from REN. It makes my skin so smooth and soft. I like to use it after I shower and before a thicker moisturizer or body oil. 

Speaking of moisturizer the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream is SO good for dry winter skin. Honestly I have not found any body moisturizer that works as well when my skin is super dry. 

My lips get SO dry and chapped in the winter. I love the Biossance vegan lip balm. It’s super nourishing and doesn’t feel sticky. 

My Top Picks


These are some of my tried and true favorites:

Farmacy Honeymoon Glow is one of my all time faves. So good for exfoliating, my skin always looks amazing the morning after using it. It has ingredients AHAs, BHAs and hyaluronic acid for exfoliation and hydration. 

I’ve been using this Glow Recipe hyaluronic serum for a few months now and I love it. It’s super lightweight and doesn’t feel sticky. I apply after toner and before moisturizer. It has definitely helped keep my skin hydrated. 

I pretty much wear Supergoop GlowScreen everyday alone or under my makeup. 

The best at home peel I’ve tried, the GoopGlow Overnight Glow Peel is so good. Especially when my pores are feeling clogged or my skin is just feeling dull. I use every 2 weeks typically. 

My favorite toner I’ve been using for years! I love Indie too she’s so awesome I am happy to support her brand. This is basically like at home microdermabrasion. It’s one of my favorite treatments and my skin always feels so clean after.


I swear by this Briogeo Avocado Mask. My hair is so much healthier and shinier if I’m consistent with it.  

I LOVE Olaplex and have used No. 3 Perfector forever so I tested the No. 0 Treatment and I definitely think it works really well with No. 3 (it basically acts as a primer). When I use the two together it basically looks like I went to the salon. It’s so great for making my hair look better longer in between appointments.


My go to foundation for glowy, dewy natural looking coverage and I love to mix it with the Drunk Elephant Bronzi Drops for a sunkissed glow (I use them in the winter too!). 

Love this Ilia mascara for volume and length and it doesn’t flake off (I don’t wear it on my bottom lashes). 

This is a really pretty eyeshadow palette I use regularly and the founder is a former Sephora employee, she’s a one woman show!

I love, love, love the Isle of Paradise Self Tanning Drops especially in the winter because I’ll just mix a few drops in with my lotion to get a subtle glow. 


My skin looks so much better when I am consistent with using my NuFace Trinity. I keep it out on my bathroom counter so that I don’t forget to use it. Great at home microcurrent therapy treatment. I did a tutorial video and it’s a pretty good visual of how it works here

I love using my jade roller at night to release tension in my face and jaw. It feels so good especially if you leave it in the fridge. Great for eye puffiness too. 

Gift Ideas

Gift Ideas

I’m a BIG fan of giving people clean deodorant as a gift. It’s one of those things I think a lot of people won’t try unless they’re forced to lol. But Necessaire Deodorant is so, so good and I love their Body Wash too especially the eucalyptus scent. The hand cream is really great too, nice little stocking stuffer! 

This Youth to The People Gift Set is such a good starter/brand intro. I love their cleanser, it was actually the first product I tried from the brand. It’s super gentle and great at removing makeup. The adaptogen moisture cream and hydrate mask are also really good products and it’s the perfect way to test them before committing to the bigger size.

This exclusive holiday set from Olaplex with the No.3 and No.0 so you can try both.

    Forgive the personal question, but are you still breastfeeding/pumping? I love honeymoon glow, but stopped using it when I was pregnant. I’m hoping I can use it again now that I’m breastfeeding. I’m so confused about what skincare is safe in this new stage.

      I’m not breastfeeding but I did use it while pregnant (after first trimester) and breastfeeding because the BHA content was so low.

    Thank you so much for this list. Does the Olaplex Holiday kit include #0? It isn’t listed in the package content. Thanks so much.

      Hi Kim, I’m so sorry I can’t find the kit I was referring to so I think it either sold out or is no longer available. I will keep checking and see if they add it again.
