Sephora Holiday Sale Favorites

As promised, the Sephora Holiday Savings Event is upon us in 2020 so I put together this post with some of my recent favorites this year.  If you missed my Spring Sephora Sale post, check it out here as all those items are staples I love, still use and would also recommend for this sale too! 

As most of you probably know, some of these beauty items rarely go on sale and this sale is one of Sephora’s biggest and best. Sephora’s Holiday Savings Event is based around Beauty Insider Status – so ROUGE members get 20% OFF from 10/30 – 11/9, VIB members get 15% OFF from 11/3– 11/9 and Insider members get 10% OFF from 11/5 – 11/9. According to the Instagram story polls I did, y’all are about 50/50 between VIB vs. ROGUE status so I wanted to share this by day 1 so you could start to add to your wishlists and shopping carts once you’re able to shop.

Sephora’s program is completely free to join and tracks all your purchases every year plus provides some truly amazing samples to redeem with your points. I try a lot of new products this way and if you aren’t currently signed up, but want a discount – this is the perfect time to get at least 10% OFF and build your status for future sales. You can sign up here now.

As always, thank you for all your support when you use my links to shop. The Sale was very popular in the Spring and I’m so lucky that so many of y’all take my recommendations and send me yours too. If you are reading this on your phone and use the Sephora app, my links also connect and work there too.

Similar to my Spring post, I’ve broken this list down into different categories and included my wishlist and gift sets this year too.

Be sure to use the code HOLIDAYFUN to apply your discount. You can use the code on as many orders as you’d like. 


*UPDATE for all my Beautycounter picks: They were originally on the Sephora website still when the sale began but they have now taken them off as the partnership JUST ended. I was able to restock with my discount before they removed them but I’m so sorry for those of you that missed it . However, I love these so much that I still wanted to include it in this post with an update. The GOOD NEWS is that if you still want to buy the product – anyone can get 10% OFF when they sign up here with a new email address!

Beautycounter Overnight Resurfacing Peel Treatment – I have talked about this peel over and over on insta-stories and it’s because it WORKS! I cannot tell you how many friends I have recommended this to and it’s one of my top recommendations right now. I use 1-2 pumps every other night and it leaves me glowing. It is gentle and has left my skin looking so bright and even too.

Beautycounter Vitamin-C Serum – I’m already on my second bottle of this Vitamin-C serum and it is one of my new go-to’s since Spring. It smells lovely and works so well! My spring post recommended another Vitamin-C but I have since switched to this one and one other (will talk about that one more later). This is yet another BC product I am loving and notice the difference in my skin tone and even-ness. I have freckles and my skin has never looked so bright! I use it every morning and Vitamin-C is essential to any skincare routine so I highly recommend this one too.

Beautycounter Supreme Cream – I use this cream every night – it’s so luxe and helps keep my skin hydrated before bed. I’m ordering my second jar this sale, some people compare it to La Mer and it’s clean too!

Indie Lee Toner – This one was recommended by so many of you and I absolutely love this toner! It’s my go-to for the mornings (I used a different brand at night) and is also a clean brand. I’ve mentioned this before but I’m not 100% “CLEAN” only by any means, I use what works and will always share you with my favorite products that do.

Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Moisturizer – This is a great daily moisturizer. I use it after Vitamin-C and it’s incredibly hydrating. My skin is often very dry in Dallas and this has helped tremendously with that. It has lactic acid and helps with fine lines too. You can buy in a smaller size if you want to try it out for a bit first!

Dermalogica BioLumin-C Vitamin C Serum – This is the other Vitamin C I use now and love too. It is slightly more expensive that the Beautycounter one and I love the dropper! It’s a high-performance serum and also has lactic acid.

Dr. Zenovia 10% Glycolic Acne Control Peel Pads – I recently discovered Dr. Zenovia’s hormonal dermatology line through a PR gifting and I’m in love with all her products so far. I generally do not have acne-prone skin but I’ve become a victim of maskne from time to time and these peel pads are truly amazing. You can use 2x a day or whenever you need it – I immediately notice a difference and my zits are gone within a day or two. It also works for dark spots. I also recommend her spot treatment (it’s often sold out but set an alert for it because it’s a miracle worker!).

Biossance Squalane + Peptide Eye Gel – If you’re looking for a clean eye gel serum, look no further! This product is excellent and I discovered it first through a sample at Sephora. It helps with dark circles and puffiness and I love to use before bed too.

Clarins V-Facial Intensive Wrap Face Mask – You have probably heard of this amazing de-puffing face mask a million times but I finally picked it up for myself this year and I’m here to tell you – it works wonders! I recommended it to a girlfriend of mine and she called it “pedialyte for your face”, ha! I could not agree more. I use it mostly in the morning and it helps to de-puff and contour your face – I think this one will go quickly on sale but set an alert if it sells out!

Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Recovery Mask – Masking is a large part of my skincare routine and it all depends on what my skin needs that week. This particular mask is great for a Sunday reset and is full of antioxidants and vitamins. My face is always glowing and brightened right after. I recommend adding this to your mask circuit for sure.

Laneige Lavender Water Sleeping Mask – Another mask I will wear overnight at the end of my routine is this one. The lavender is so soothing to fall asleep too and it’s lightweight but so hydrating. They also have other options with no scent. I mentioned this in my last post, but I also use their lip mask every night before bed.

Farmacy Gel Sheet Masks – These sheet masks are the best! I love the hydrating one and the brightening one too. They are great gifts and a clean option.

Beautycounter Countercontrol Clear Pore Cleanser – My last Beautycounter rec on this list is this cleanser (don’t forget to use the new code I posted above)! I love clean cleansers and use this along with my Tula one. It helps to remove make up and oils (also good for maskne these days!) and has jojoba beans that are gentle and exfoliating.

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant Exfoliator – I’m often asked what exfoliators I use and this has been a top pick for years! I call it my “skin polish” and love how gentle this is on my skin and how tight my skin looks after I use it. It’s a rice-based powder that you mix and is very lightweight. They also make it in a mini size so you can try it out first and it is even gentle enough for daily use.

Nécessaire Body Wash – If you want to know if the hype is real on Nécessaire – it is! I genuinely love the body wash and use the Eucalyptus one daily. It’s clean and they also have other scents that I’m looking forward to trying. It’s a great time to get it on sale!

Nécessaire Body Lotion – This is the other product I am loving by them and using daily. It’s fragrance free and full of vitamins and omegas. It’s no nonsense and also very hydrating for colder months.

Dr. Barbara Sturm Hyaluronic Serum – Last but not least in skincare, if you decide to splurge on one thing, let it be this serum! I know the price is $$$ but I’m telling you, I have not tried a hyaluronic acid I like better and it comes at a great discount right now.


Drybar Detox Dry Shampoo –  If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know that Drybar products are nothing new to me. I’ve been using this dry shampoo and others for years but LOVE that they have the new large value size of this one now so I had to mention.

Drybar On The Rocks Lightweight Conditioner – This is my go-to Drybar conditioner. It’s super lightweight, which is perfect for fine hair like mine and I pair it with their Clarifying Charcoal Shampoo every week. I always stock up on these when they’re on sale.

Drybar Wrap Party Styling Wand – Last but not least in Drybar world is this curling wand. It’s what I have been using for a few years and I love how you can set the temperature, it automatically goes off after an hour, it has a reverse taper which is great for curl styling and ionic technology.


Laneige Lip Balm – My last post has more of my make up routine but I wanted to include a few more in this post. This balm (like the lip mask) is amazing. It comes in many other flavors and is the perfect addition to my mostly minimal or no make-up looks these days.

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Concealer  -When it comes to make up, I tend to stick with holy grail products for years. I have loved and used the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation for a long time so it’s fitting that I am loving the new concealer that just came out. It compliments the foundation and is nice on its own too.

Nars Mini Orgasm Blush – This is also a longtime favorite of mine but I love that it comes in this mini size now! Great for travel and purses.

Urban Decay All-Nighter Make Up Setting Spray – This product is the only setting spray I love. It helps my make up last and I swear it helps it not get on my other face masks these days. I linked the smaller size as I recommend trying it that way first.


Since the holidays are basically amongst us now, it’s only fitting I include a few of my favorite candles. These are some great holiday scents, stocking stuffer ornaments and some staples too. The sale is the perfect time to try out some new candles. I also picked up this one last sale and am obsessed!


I wanted to include some of my holiday gift set picks this sale too. These not only make great gifts and stocking stuffers but I love gift sets as a way to test new products and use for travel too. The NuFace also has a limited edition option or you can pick up the regular one here (one of the most popular items of 2020 on H&T!).


I’ve included a few others items below that are in my cart and on my wishlist these days to try next. Continue to check back on this post as I will update it some as the sale goes on.

*Pro Tip: if any of my picks are “sold out”, I recommend signing up for the alerts when they’re back in stock – I have purchased several items like that in the past when I receive the email alert and you can use your discount code as many times as you’d like!
