Gisou Honey Glow Icons Bestsellers Gift Set

This limited-edition, Sephora-exclusive Gisou bestsellers gift set is a must-have if you want your hair and lips looking and feeling amazing. It includes a full-sized Honey Infused Hair Oil (which won an Allure Best of Beauty 2023 award), a full-sized Honey Infused Hair Perfume, a full-sized Honey Infused Lip Oil, and a mini-sized Honey Infused Hair Mask.

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer

I swear by this NARS concealer, as do many other beauty enthusiasts. With 1.3 million loves on Sephora and a shade range of 30 colors, this concealer has amassed a big fan base for its formula that brightens, corrects, and perfects for a natural, radiant finish. I've found that it lasts for a really long time and provides creamy medium coverage that's also seamlessly buildable.

Touchland Glow Mist Revitalizing Hand Sanitizer Duo Set

Chances are, you've seen Touchland hand sanitizers at least once on TikTok, especially if you're a fan of the "clean girl" aesthetic that just looks so put together all the time. This unique spritzing sanitizer was so popular that it completely sold out in March 2020 and even garnered a waitlist of almost 35,000 people. But now, you can get not just one, but two(!), of these internet-fave sanitizers at an extra-discounted value.

La Mer The Replenishing Moisture Collection Set

This sale is the perfect excuse — ahem, opportunity — to splurge on luxury beauty that we might not get to try very often. La Mer is a brand whose results justify the hefty price tag, but even then, it can be hard to drop hundreds of dollars on building and sustaining a premium skincare routine. Luckily, this set, which is already $91 less than its retail value and will be even cheaper with the Sephora discount, comes with all the essential La Mer bestsellers so you can treat yourself to multiple luxe-beauty products in one go.

K18 Biomimetic Hairscience Leave-In Molecular Repair Hair Mask

If we're talking hype-worthy beauty products, we certainly can't leave out the internet-viral K18 molecular hair mask. According to the brand, this leave-in treatment mask clinically reverses damage in four minutes, helping to restore strength, softness, smoothness, and bounce to your hair. We love this hair mask so much that we wrote a full dedicated review of it, which you can check out here if you want to learn more about this mask and why it's absolutely a must-buy for your hair.

Sephora Favorites Holiday Makeup Must-Haves

This 11-piece curated set includes bestselling makeup, skincare, and hair must-haves from Charlotte Tilbury, Huda Beauty, Amika, and more popular brands. It comes with an array of mini and full sizes, making it the perfect gift for this holiday season — both for your friend and yourself.

Drunk Elephant B-Goldi™ Bright Illuminating Drops with 5% Niacinamide

Drunk Elephant is a fan-favorite brand as it is, but these B-Goldi™ Bright Illuminating Drops have their own cult following in the beauty community. Formulated with ingredients like 5% niacinamide, diglucosyl gallic acid, and morus alba leaf extract, this serum works fade hyperpigmentation and dark spots while reviving dull skin and restoring its radiance, according to the brand.

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Glossy Posse Volume 6.0 Full-Size Gloss Bomb Trio

It's another day, another slay with this Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Trio. This set of cream, shimmer, and heat Gloss Bomb formulas features two bestselling shades, Fenty Glow and Glass Slipper Heat, and one set-exclusive shade, Pink Dragonfly.

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant Refillable Exfoliator

A few months ago, I bought the mini size of this BeautyTok-loved Dermalogica exfoliator to see if it was worth the internet hype before I splurged on a full-size bottle. Spoiler alert, it absolutely was, and now I'm excited to seal the deal for real with the full-size version. If you're not yet familiar with this exfoliator, it's a gentle rice-based powder cleanser that exfoliates skin and helps brighten, smooth texture, and clear clogged pores with ingredients like colloidal oatmeal, papain enzymes, and salicylic acid.

Tatcha The Dewy Skin Cream Plumping & Hydrating Moisturizer

It's important to moisturize consistently all year round, but especially so during the colder, dryer months when our skin becomes more vulnerable. This bestselling cream from Tatcha hydrates and plumps while improving your skin's moisture barrier for a radiant, dewy look that glows from within. It includes skin-loving ingredients like hyaluronic acid and algae blend, squalane, and Japanese purple rice.

amika Planet Perk Up Dry Shampoo Duo Set

What's better than amika's Perk Up Dry Shampoo? Two bottles of it! This value set offers a full size and free trial size of the brand's bestselling dry shampoo that's loved for its ability to absorb oil, boost volume, and keep your hairstyle fresh. It works with an array of different hair types and textures, and it includes ingredients like rice starch and sea buckthorn that restore and refresh your hair.

The Best Beauty Advent Calendars of 2023: Lookfantastic, Charlotte Tilbury, Revolve & More

Rare Beauty by Selena Gomez Everyday Rose Lip Oil & Liner Duo

This limited-edition, full-size lip duo features the fan-favorite Soft Pinch Tinted Lip Oil and Kind Words Matte Lip Liner in the perfect universal rose brown. The lip oil applies glossy and leaves a lasting tint without the stickiness, while the lip liner seamlessly glides on like a balm to shape and define your lips.

Caudalie Pores & Glow Duo Minis Set

Caudalie has been on my beauty radar for the longest while, especially as someone with sensitive skin who appreciates straightforward, effective, and clean skincare formulations. I wanted to try the brand's pore-minimizing mask, but I wasn't ready to commit fully to spending $40 without doing a test run first. I finally got to try it via a Sephora sample last week, and I've been hooked. This mask is pure magic, and while I'm revving my shopping engine to add the mask to my cart during this sale, if you want to try it out for yourself, this bestselling elixir and mask duo is a wonderful place to start.

Slip Maggie Silk Pillowcase and Silk Skinny Scrunchies Gift Set

A quick Google search will pull up entire lists of reasons why using a silk pillowcase is better for your hair, scalp, and skin compared to a traditional pillowcase. Give the gift that keeps on giving with this set from Slip featuring an Allure Best of Beauty award-winning queen pillowcase and three skinny scrunchies in limited-edition colors. Of course, you can also grab one for yourself while you're at it (that's absolutely what we're doing).

Dior Addict Beauty Ritual Set

I was just about to add my fave Dior Addict Lip Glow balm to my cart when I came across this new, limited-edition set that not only included the lip balm but the brand's cult-fave lip plumper, serum, and perfume as well. The couture pouch is just the cutest cherry on top.

Sephora Collection Makeup Tape

For those of us who adore having a sharp winged eyeliner but can't seem to overcome the daily hurdle of actually drawing it on (much less draw both sides evenly), this makeup tape is the perfect little addition to your beauty inventory. This multi-use, high-quality, medical-grade hypoallergenic tape is safe for all skin types, according to the brand.

Kaja Charmed Heart Face Set

Kaja products are on a whole new level of charming and adorable, and this heart-inspired, limited-edition set shows why. It features the brand's full-size fan-faves, including a Beauty Bento Eyeshadow Trio, Cheeky Stamp Blush, and Jelly Charm Lip and Blush Stain (that comes with a glittery keychain!). Plus, it's available at an amazing value even before the savings event discount, making this kit 100% worth buying.

Drybar The Half Shot Blow Dryer Brush + Prep Rally Hair Primer Set

This limited-edition Drybar blowout kit's retail price is already an amazing deal on its own, but with the Sephora Savings discount added on top of it, this set transforms from a want to a need. From a full-size detangler and hair clips to a mini hair spray and dry shampoo, this kit comes with everything you need to achieve a smooth, shiny blowout at home, protect your hair from heat, and extend your style's longevity.
