Sephora is one of my favorite places to shop for makeup, skincare, and other beauty products. They have an extensive range of brands and products, their shipping is so fast, and I always seem to leave with things I didn’t even know I needed. Since I almost exclusively buy all things beauty at Sephora, it was a no-brainer to sign up to be a VIB member, and one of the perks is getting access to their Sephora Insider Sale, which happens twice a year!
Whether you need to replace beauty products or there are some products you’ve been wanting to try, now is the time. Today marks the first day of Sephora’s Spring Savings Event! If you haven’t shopped the sale before, or aren’t sure how it works, I’m breaking down everything you need to know.
How to Shop the Sephora Beauty Insider Sale
The Sephora Spring Savings Event is an exclusive sale for Sephora Insiders. It’s free to join and is essentially Sephora’s rewards program. For every dollar you spend, you get points that you can use towards purchases, samples, and more. As a member, you also get access to the Sephora VIB Sales that happen twice a year during which each member level gets a different discount.
This year, the sale is April 1-11. During this time, Rouge members get 20% off, VIBs get 15% off, and Insiders get 10% off.

My Sephora Beauty Favorites
Dior Backstage Face & Body Foundation – I’ve tried so many foundations over the years and this one is hands down the best. It has a natural finish, is very buildable, and is waterproof and sweat-resistant so it won’t move all day. It’s also available in forty different shades, making it easy to match your skin tone.
Dior Backstage Face & Body Powder – I always use a finishing powder to help reduce shine and set my makeup for the day. After being so impressed with the Dior Backstage Face & Body Foundation, I incorporated this powder (from the same line!) into my routine and I’m never looking back.
Gucci Flora Gorgeous Gardenia Perfume – My signature scent! With notes of gardenia, jasmine, pear blossom, and sweet brown sugar, you can’t go wrong with this floral fragrance.
Jo Malone English Pear & Freesia Body Crème – Jo Malone has been my go-to for moisturizer for years! This English pear and freesia body crème smells absolutely delicious and is so moisturizing. A must during the dry months!
My Sephora Beauty Insider Sale Picks
Sephora is synonymous with makeup. After all, it’s how it got its start. No matter what I’m stopping into Sephora for, there are always a handful of brands that I’m checking out while I’m in the store. Dior, Charlotte Tilbury, Fenty Beauty (a new favorite!), and NARS. During the sale, I’ll definitely be picking up this tinted lip oil and this blush and highlighter duo.
The Sephora Spring Savings Event is the perfect time to stock up on all of your favorite skincare products or try ones you have your eye on. No matter what level you are, the La Mer Crème de la Mer Moisturizer is a must!
