I don't know about you, but for me, spring cleaning applies not only to my apartment and closet, but to my makeup bag and skincare shelf as well. It's unbelievably satisfying to comb my beauty stash for expired formulas and recycle containers from used-up products. Plus, warmer weather means a new set of skincare needs and a new color go-to makeup color scheme, so this seasonal purging of the old is also typically accompanied by a refresh so that I'm well-prepared for everything the warm months have in store.
Luckily, beauty spring cleaning also coincides with Sephora's annual Spring Savings Event. During the sale, which lasts from April 14 until April 24, Beauty Insiders can save 10 percent on select items, while VIB members save 15 percent and Rouge members save 20 percent. To make matters even better, the Sephora Collection is 30 percent off for all shoppers, regardless of their Beauty Insider status.
With such a tremendous number of offerings, it can feel overwhelming to get started. So I spent hours scouring Sephora's site to pick out the very best products—and deals—for you to invest in during your post-spring cleaning restock.
