    Psst: prices below are calculated with the full 20% off!

    1. Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial lives up to its name, functioning as an at-home, ~facial-style~ treatment that gently exfoliates and resurfaces will a potent but gently blend of 25% AHA and 2% BHA. It's pricey, but a bottle is still cheaper than just one "real" facial.

    Sephora

    Price: $64+ (originally $80).

    Promising review: "This is by far the best facial I have ever tried! I have used it once a week for three weeks now and my skin feels as soft as a baby! My pores are less visible now, the hyper-pigmentation due to acne has faded and there was a dramatic improvement in texture and tone. And I also got a lot of compliments on my skin now. I have sensitive, acne prone skin and it stings for about two minutes upon application (nothing uncomfortable!). In my opinion, I think that this product is worth the price!" —Zarni

    2. Peace Out Pore Treatment Strips absorb dirt, excess oil, sebum, and dead skin from deep within pores, clarifying pores to help reduce their appearance *while* preventing blackheads.

    Sephora

    And unlike Bioré strips, these don't yank out sebaceous filaments — they absorb oil and dissolve blackheads. I've used these during quaran-time, and they're really great!

    Price: $15.20+ (originally $19; for a pack of eight, four pore strips and four nose strips).

    Promising review: "First product I ever used to clean my pores. I never really noticed issues in this area but my friend loved them so much, I decided to use one. I was shocked with how much it pulled overnight. They were easy to wear and worked great with my sensitive skin. Definitely need to get more." —SammyJo11

    3. Tatcha Silken Pore Perfecting Sunscreen might finally get you to put on sunscreen — and do so every dang day. Want SPF but afraid it's gonna make you break out? 1. Same. 2. This weightless, broad-spectrum SPF 35 formula won't turn greasy, and the Japanese wild rose will actually diminish the appearance of pores.

    instagram.com

    **91% of users reported that their skin appeared clearer after four weeks** That's all! And btw, this is my favorite face sunscreen — check out my full review for all the deets.

    Price: $52+ (originally $65)

    Promising review: "This is the best facial sunscreen I’ve ever used! It doesn’t make me break out. It shrinks my pores. It’s not greasy or sticky feeling at all. And after two months of using this every morning, it’s really evened out my skin tone. The only down fall is it’s so expensive but it’s worth the money." —daily06jeep

    4. Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask clears out pores, rids skin of pollutants from the air, removes excess oil, and squashes any burgeoning pimples in their tracks.

    Sephora

    I even use it as an overnight spot treatment on any undergrounders that aren't quite ready for a pimple patch yet.

    Price: $20.80+ (originally $26; also available in a travel size for $13)

    Promising review: "I have acne prone and VERY oily skin. I’ve been having trouble with a lot of cystic acne lately and decided to spend the money on this product because nothing else was working. Not anything with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide it just dried me out and irritated me. This mask is AMAZING. Some of these reviews with low ratings say that it caused some people to break out. Yes, my acne seemed to be getting bigger and coming out, but it was this mask SUCKING ALL THE NASTINESS out of my face. I did this mask every night for a week and had visibly less acne, tighter pores, and the smoothest skin. It’s not gonna be a one-time wonder miracle; you gotta keep using it. I will be continuing to use this regularly because it the BEST thing I’ve found for my skin problems. My face is clear for the first time in months." —wizzardteets

    5. Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer is truly splurge-worthy, thanks to its lightweight body, powerful motor to cut your drying time way down, and magnetic attachments (two concentrators and a diffuser) you can pop on and off with ease.

    Sephora

    Price: $319.20+ (originally $399; available in three colors)

    Promising review: "I have baby-fine hair and decided to splurge and buy this little gem for myself to get some volume and smoothness. My old T3 dryer which I had for 10 years was functioning, but not to my liking. To be honest, I wasn't sure how I'd like this dryer, if it would live up to the hype, but it certainly did! It dries my hair so quickly and gives me a TON of volume and shine. I love that it has the option of either the cool shot or cool level adjustor. I also love the different magnetic attachments so styling is easier. I hope this dryer will last forever because it's a dream to use!" —renny79

    This won best $$$ hair dryer on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    6. Fenty Stunna Lip Paint looks amazing on everyone — and the universal red shade was so beloved among lipstick lovers, they came out with for more must-have shades.

    Sephora

    If you're looking for a gloss, Fenty's Gloss Bomb is well... bomb too!

    Price: $20+ (originally $25; available in eight shades)

    Promising review: "Wow! I wasn’t expecting to like this so much. This is only my second Fenty purchase but both are awesome. Super pretty and wearable shade. I am normally not a matte lip lover because of drying but this is so comfortable and stayed on through drinking and eating. I can’t say that about many lippies. Highly recommend." —loverockandroll

    7. Glow Recipe’s Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask works like a facial WHILE YOU SLEEP — the breathable, oh-so bouncy formula is made with soothing watermelon (duh), hyaluronic acid, and AHAs to moisturize *and* resurface your skin while you snooze. Aaaand it won't get all over your pillow.

    Sephora

    Price: $36+ (originally $45)

    Promising review: "Miracle worker. This mask is amazing. Even after the first use, I woke up to baby-soft, even toned skin. Not to mention it smells like heaven! After extended use, I don't need to exfoliate as often and my skin in consistently baby-soft, I have sensitive skin but have no issues with this mask. It's so good!" —Kresme

    8. Benefit Watt's Up applies like a dream, thanks to the cream-to-powder formula and the built-in sponge brush ideal for subtle strobing.

    Sephora

    Price: $24+ (originally $30)

    Promising review: "This product became an instant favorite from my very first use. Its silky smooth texture blends spectacularly, and it is just the little pop of highlight I need to have a fresh look. I will continue to use this...don't hesitate to try it!" —violetlime

    9. Living Proof Dry Shampoo quickly absorbs hair oil and sweat, while boosting volume and smelling ahh-mazing for the best hair of your life (even if you haven't washed it in days and days).

    Sephora

    Not only do our readers love it — this is the only dry shampoo I use, it is SO worth the price, I'm in love.

    Price: $20+ (originally $25; available in three sizes, including the new JUMBO SIZE, which I need)

    Promising review: "I've tried a bunch of friends dry shampoos from drug store to Bumble and Bumble. Finally bought this based on reviews; this stuff is amazing. It's like magic. Don't understand how they do it. A must-have to keep stored away for those lazy days." —GraceT12

    This won best mid-price dry shampoo on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    10. Murad Invisiblur™ Perfecting Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 30 PA+++ works as a multi-use treatment, primer, and sunscreen that diminishes fine lines and improves the texture of your skin and helps your makeup last and last. It can ~instantly~ reduce the appearance of pores by up to 30%!

    Sephora

    Price: $52+ (originally $65)

    Promising review: "A makeup artist at Sephora used this product on me the other day before applying my makeup. I didn't want her to because I like to keep it simple. When she finished my skin looked like it had been airbrushed in one step. I love that it is a sunscreen and a primer. Highly recommend it if you like to do one step and keep it simple." —Mere20

    11. Philosophy Renewed Hope In A Jar refines the texture of skin with a blend of AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids, aka chemical exfoliants), three(!) forms of mega-hydrating hyaluronate, and Asian fruit extracts to boost your glow. That's a lot of work for one jar.

    Sephora

    Price: $31.20+ (originally $39+, depending on size; available in two sizes).

    Promising review: "I have been using this since September and it has been a blessing for my combo skin (cheeks dry from New England weather, but maintaining oily T zone). So many of my friends have become hooked after using it at my house. It's lightweight, absorbs quickly, and doesn't look shiny! I put it on after washing my face and let it sit for like five minutes before applying my makeup." —hotmesshailey

    12. Fresh Sugar Roll-on Deodorant Antiperspirant controls odor, squashes perspiration, and prevents bacteria with an alcohol-free formula that won't irritate your skin.

    Sephora

    Price: $16+ (originally $20)

    Promising review: "I did not expect this to work for me since I have been using clinical strength anti perspirants for years. The scent is fresh and light and lasts all day. It just feels so much better on my skin. I am so happy I tried this product and will not be going back to thick, heavy, strong chemical-smelling drugstore deodorant. Another great product from Fresh!" —klovesg

    13. Dr Dennis Gross Peel Pads are pricey, but are pre-soaked with a blend of gentle-but-powerful chemical exfoliants to diminish fine lines, refine texture, and reveal brighter, clearer, and healthier skin. Peep the over 900 reviews on Sephora that also swear by these bbs.

    instagram.com

    Price: $70.40+ (originally $88; for a pack of 35 pads)

    Promising review: "i have literally tried every mask and peel that Sephora has and this is my holy grail!!!! I suffer from skin that is dry and sensitive and I ironically get breakouts, sometimes the severe cystic kind. This peel has literally transformed my skin; I wake up with dewy and glowing skin with no acne!!!!" —megank16

    14. Stila Glitter & Glow Eyeshadow applies like a dream, leaving a glittery and multifaceted sparkle that'll last and last — and won't get into your eyes. Liquid shadows are the way of the future!

    Sephora

    I have this in the shade Kitten and it goes on sooooooo easily and looks gorge! Just a tiny dab is perfect for some daytime glitter — no fallout.

    Price: $19.20+ (originally $24; available in six colors)

    Promising review: "I bought this in four colors: Jezebel, Twig, Boheme and Kitten. They are all AMAZING and I’m finding it hard to remember that I even own any other eyeshadows. They are highly pigmented and super rich — just one swipe is all you need to coat your lid with a gorgeous shimmer. If you don’t want too much drama in the daytime, just lightly patting it with a fingertip brings down the intensity. It will also last forever with a primer; I literally had it on for 48 hours straight, and even though I had to touch up my eyeliner and mascara in that time, this shadow stayed put. I am so in love - yas Stila, YASSSSS." —skyokow

    15. Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer makes under-eye circles and other troublesome spots disappear with just a few swipes of its highlighting formula with *light-diffusing technology*.

    Sephora

    I swear by this concealer for my allergic shiner dark circles, and will 100% be re-stocking up on this during the sale!

    Price: $24+ (originally $30; available in 30 shades).

    Promising review: "I've tried pretty much every high-end under-eye concealer under the sun, and always found myself doing touch-ups and never completely covering my insomnia-induced dark circles. First was Chanel (which was reformulated but still not cutting it), then YSL's iconic Touche Éclat which is second best, and Diorskin which was an epic failure. NARS kicked butt in coverage, formulation, and application. One small dot per eye covers the entire under-eye area, from corner to corner. Better still? It looks natural, doesn't crease all day long, and feels more like an extension of my skincare. Brilliant. I'll never look back, and I challenge you to find any under-eye circles." —wendysully

    16. Fenty Pro Filt'r Solt Matte Longwear Foundation has you COVERED with 40 different shades in a huge range of skin tones. Plus its long-wear, climate-resistant formula stays matte all damn day.

    Sephora

    Price: $28+ (originally $35; available in 50 shades).

    Promising review: "What can I even say about this? Fenty is just perfection. This foundation has high coverage but feels like I barely have anything on. A little really does go a long way. I've found that it dries really fast, so I suggest buffing it into one area at a time (starting with the checks, etc.). It's definitely not one of those situations where you dab a little all over your face and then blend it out with your beauty blender (don't do this! It will end up looking splotchy). I suspect it dries fast because of the matte formula, but it is so worth it. I really love the smell. It smells like luxury. And it looks even better." —tlentzmc

    17. Sunday Riley C.E.O. Glow Vitamin C + Turmeric Face Oil absorbs instantly into your skin, with its namesake powerhouse ingredients working quickly to fight signs of stress and pollution, including dullness, fine lines, and redness. Basically it gets a *lot* done WHILE moisturizing your skin.

    Sephora

    Price: $32+ (originally $40+; also available in a larger size)

    Promising review: "This oil is one of the best skincare products I’ve tried in the past few years, or possibly ever. I have sensitive, acne-prone skin—basically anything can inflame it—so always worry about ending up with a breakout after trying a new product, especially an oil. This oil does the opposite — it visibly calms down any inflammation on my face overnight, and works miracles with scarring and redness in a very short time. It absorbs pretty fast, so you I am not left with a shiny face for the entire day, and feels hydrating. I’ve used both in the morning and in the evening, and works fine under make-up as well. Would hands down recommend to anyone who has trouble with breakouts or redness." —LyssaFace

    18. Pat McGrath Matte Trance Lipsticks smother your lips in super opaque pigment that'll last and last. And they're all housed in perfect packaging, complete with golden lips!

    Sephora

    Price: $30.40+ (originally $38; available in 28 colors)

    Promising review: "These are so beyond amazing! They are exactly how I thought they'd be. I've been searching for the perfect lipstick formula and this is it!!!! It is matte yet creamy with coverage in one swipe and so lightweight. You won't even know there's anything on your lips- that's how good it feels. And the best part, even though they transfer, these stay on the lips!!! Even through drinking and eating!" —Trean7

    Btw, this was our top pick for best $$$ matte lipstick on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    19. Urban Decay's Primer Potion is the must-have product for anyone who wears eyeshadow, making the colors more vibrant, the lasting power FAR longer, and keeping creasing, fading, and oily lids from ruining your look.

    Sephora

    Price: $19.20+ (originally $24).

    Promising review: "This stuff works. After a long night of getting rammed in the back of my boyfriend's car then going home and sleeping for six hours I awoke to find my eye makeup completely perfect. No smudges. Colors were still good. It's the perfect primer for anyone." —TrashQueen

    20. Marc Jacobs Gel Highliner Eye Crayons glide smoothly along your skin, delivering a powerful pigment that'll feel creamy (they'll made with vitamin E and rosehip oil) for effortless application.

    instagram.com

    Price: $20.80+ each (originally $26; available in 20 shimmer shades, 12 matte shades, one satin shade, and seven glitter shades).

    Promising review: "I have two shades: brown and green. Eyes are hazel so these shades make my eyes pop! I have about 50 eyeliners from crayons, pencils, kohl, etc. These are the bomb! My eyesight is poor so I use a magnifying mirror, steady hand and BAM magic. You can control the thickness and intensity, and my eyes have never looked better. Now I will ditch all my other liners because I am hooked! Compliments never stop!" —shammyrock

    21. Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick coats your pout in never-fail, super-pigmented color that'll outlast the greasiest burger lunch – no fading, cracking, feathering, or bleeding.

    Sephora

    Price: $19.20+ each (originally $24; available in 24 matte shades and six metallic shades)

    Promising review: "So, I HATE lipstick. I hate it. I don't like the feeling of the stickiness, I hate feeling like I can't eat or drink or even kiss my boyfriend without having to re-apply (or get it on him).... That is, until now. I feel so incredibly happy to have found these. They LAST, they don't dry out my lips, and the colors are gorgeous. Now, I just need to order the nude shade for everyday because bright red and bright pink might shock everyone around after years not wearing lipstick, haha. Like another reviewer said, BUY THESE. You will not regret it." —TaylorMoooon

    22. Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner has a smudge-free felt tip to make creating the perfect cat eye simpler than ever. Just glide, flick, and walk out the door — texting your friends, "20 mins late because of a cat eye malfunction" is in the past.

    Sephora

    Price: $17.60+ (originally $22; available in six colors)

    Promising review: "Doesn't smudge, doesn't flake, dries super fast, thin line, thick line, the blackest pigment ever, and shaped like a pen so that anyone--beginner or not--can easily maneuver it. Stop even thinking about other eyeliners, this is the only one that matters. GO BUY IT! AMAZING!!" —redsoxgirl89

    This won best mid-price eyeliner on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    23. Milk Makeup Kush Fiber Brow Gel multitasks to both treat AND fill in your brows. The gel is formulated with heart-shaped fibers to thicken the appearance of your brows naturally with just one swipe, while the help-derived oil helps give definition and long-lasting hold, no flaking.

    Sephora

    Price: $16+ (originally $20; available in eight shades)

    Promising review: "Typically don't write reviews but was BLOWN AWAY by this amazing product!! My brows were perfect from the time I walked out the door to the time I got home from work (seriously impressive). Def give this product a try — it's my new go-to brow holy grail!" —anastasia123

    24. Fenty Match Stix have everything you need to conceal, correct, contour, and touch up your face — all in one swipe. They're designed for layering, so the cream-to-powder formula blends in b-e-a-u-tifully, whether you're applying at 8 a.m. or touching up at 10 p.m.

    Sephora

    Yes, this *is* the third Fenty product in this sale round-up, but that's because Rihanna has BLESSED US with this line and it really is that good. And this sale is the perfect time to stock up.

    Price: $20+ each (originally $25; available in 20 shades).

    Promising review: "I am new to the cream contour as I wanted to try because I don’t like the chalky look the powder sets give... and I must say I am never going back! This was my first stick and I use the mocha color everyday! I don’t even put on blush, because I love how warm and natural the finish is! It blends super easy!" —treen411

    25. Foreo Luna Mini 2, a silicone face-cleansing brush, washes and exfoliates, scrubbing every drop of makeup, dirt, and oil from your face with each vibrating pulse so you know you're getting a *thorough*, pore-clearing clean — in just 60 seconds.

    BuzzFeed

    It'll totally remove your makeup, dirt, and oil, AAAAND gently exfoliate your skin in just 60 seconds (I know). ^That's me! I love this handy lil' device SO much. It's DEFINITELY helped clear acne and fade acne scarring. Check out my in-depth Foreo Luna Mini 2 review for all the deets!

    Price: $111.20+ (originally $139; available in six colors).

    Promising review: "I have been using the Luna mini 2 for about a month now, and what a difference it has made!! I have had minimal breakouts, the texture has improved dramatically, blemishes have faded, and my skin is so much smoother. I used the Clarisonic for two years, and I never thought it could be replaced. I finally gave in to the hype of the Luna, and I'm so happy I did! I love that you don't have to replace the brush head every three months too. Love love love the Luna!" —flm6510

    26. Olaplex Hair Perfector No. 3 strengthens the hair for an incredible at-home treatment that'll restore the healthy appearance and texture of your hair after heat damage, bleaching, and everyday wear and tear.

    instagram.com, Sephora

    Price: $22.40+ (originally $28; also available in a jumbo *value* size)

    Promising review: "I'm gonna start by saying I'm a hair stylist and have been using Olaplex since the beginning. It's the one and only bond rebuilder on the market. Any other product claiming the same or better is not true at all. Olaplex is an active ingredient Bis-Aminopropyl Diglycol Dimaleate which is patented by the company. This ingredient goes into the cortex of your hair and fusing together the strands. This is a diluted at home conditioning treatment that helps keep your hair strong after salon visits or between them to get your desired result with relatively little damage." —brandyndoeshair

    27. Benefit They're Real Mascara curls, separates, lengthens, and volumizes for dramatic, "are you wearing falsies?" lashes in just a few strokes.

    Sephora

    Price: $20+ (originally $25; also available in brown).

    Promising review: "I have spent a few years trying a range of different mascaras...most were okay but never anything to fall in love with. I've tried several drug store and even a few department store mascaras. I got a deluxe sample of this in a birthday gift from Sephora and it has become my go-to, hands-down love this mascara! It defines, separates, and lengthens. It's perfect for everyday wear and you can layer it on if you want some more oomph. Finally found the one that works for me and I find it to be worth the money!" —jujube83

    28. Drybar Double Shot Blow-Drying Brush combines a round brush with the blower of a blow-dryer so you can style and smooth your hair with just one tool. Blowout bar results, right at home.

    Sephora

    Price: $120+ (originally $150)

    Promising review: "I have long, thick, wavy hair and regular blow-dryers never work for me as they take way too long and blow around my hair so much that I end up looking like a mess at the end. With this, I am able to blow-dry my hair straight without any issue, and I can give it that blowout swooped look which I love! My hair takes around six hours to air dry, and I can use this tool in 20 minutes. So worth the money. It is super easy to handle, not too heavy, and doesn't get too hot where it burns the scalp. Love, love love!" —Leah9898

    29. Gucci Bloom Eau de Parfum wows you with a lush, modern floral scent with mid notes of tuberose and base notes of jasmine — and of course, the super cool millennial pink bottle. You're one spritz away from the loveliest garden imaginable.

    Sephora

    I love love love the smell of this perfume — like a modern version of a vintage-y floral.

    Price: $77.60+ (originally $97; also available in smaller sizes)

    Promising review: "This is my new favorite! I love the smell and I always get a ton of compliments when I wear it. It’s definitely worth the money. I don’t know what I’ll wear if it’s ever discontinued!" —HeatherMcC1
