Beauty Bounty: Sephora Coupon Code Spree.

Happy Monday INDEED!  Sephora is currently running its annual 20% off for VIBRouge members with code YESROUGE.  (Starting Thursday the 30th, VIB members will get 15% off with YESVIB and Beauty Insiders (free to join) will get 10% off with code YESINSIDER.  This is my most favorite discount of the year because cosmetics rarely go on sale.  I am stocking up on my tinted moisturizer, regenerating facial cleanser, and DiorShow mascara. Basically — the things I know I will run out of and repurchase immediately.  I’m also thinking I might buy a few of these to give as gifts to girlfriends/sisters for Christmas — I am obsessed.

But there are a few items on my wishlist I might indulge in, too:

+I got a sample of Ole Henriksen’s Cold Plunge Pore Mask and was obsessed with it.  You look like a Smurf wearing it, but it feels like an arctic blast and really leaves skin clean.

+One of you wrote about how much you like Ole Henriksen’s facial cream and since I’m so enamored of his serum and mask, I might also buy some of this to see how I like it.

+I’m smitten with my Aerin Lauder Evening Rose scent (it even made my roundup of my favorite items purchased thus far in 2018!), but have heard magical things about their Lilac Path scent, described as both “crisp and delicate.”  And, ya know, since lilacs hold a special place in my heart, I might just have to indulge.

+My sister is big into the line Drunk Elephant — she swears their nighttime oil has changed her skin — and I might pick up this mini-sized duo to test it on myself.

+I’ve been dying to try Charlotte Tillbury’s Face Filter, especially after the gorgeous and flawless skinned Grace Atwood recommended it!

P.S.  I store most of my makeup in one of these cubes.  It makes everything easy to find.  I keep my makeup brushes upright in a decorative drinking glass and my lipsticks in one of these.  I keep all of my curling irons, brushes, and hairdryers in a rattan storage bin and then a stack of inexpensive white washcloths in a smaller matching rattan bin.  I found that I was ruining all my beloved towels (I love Yves Delorme’s Etoile towels because they are THE FLUFFIEST but they do not retain their color well over time — I’d go with white! — and I also love these Matouk Auberge towels with the squat monogram letter on the front!) with makeup smears!  I love the look of these in a bathroom for stowing cotton balls, qtips, etc, but I already have a set of mercury glass ones I love (but can no longer find online).

P.P.S.  My favorite beauty products of all time.

P.P.P.S.  An asterisk on a pollyanna moment, thoughts on turning 34, and recent inspiration.


  1. FYI, I love Drunk Elephant too, but their marula oil is the same exact thing as The Ordinary’s marula oil, just $$$. I do swear by their BabyFacial though!

    1. Good to know! My sister was just telling me to be skeptical of any oils from beauty brands; you can often buy a generic version at your local whole foods / grocery! xo

  2. This surprise sale (VIB is usually just spring and pre-holiday) combined with Charlotte Tillbury’s long-awaited arrival at Sephora is the best/worst thing to happen lately! There are so many things I’m dying to try, including the magic face filter. Yay for a bit of a discount to take the sting out….
