Good luck to you (and good luck to me) exercising self-restraint at the Sephora VIB sale, which we’re in the midst of now. If you’re in the mood to treat yo’self, here are some skin care, makeup and hair products I love and can wholeheartedly recommend.
- Sephora’s Spring Bonus sale starts on April 13 for members of its Beauty Insider rewards program.
- VIB Rouge members will get 15% off their entire purchase on April 13 – April 16 and April 20 – April 23.
- VIB members will get 15% off on April 20 – April 23, when Insiders will get 10% as well.
- Gift sets are a great way to get the most bang for your buck during the sale, since they are already good value before they are discounted.
- Customers are limited to one Dyson product and three Drunk Elephant products per purchase; products from the online-exclusive brand The Ordinary are not available as part of the sale.
