Can you believe it's already time for Sephora's end of year VIB Rouge sale? It feels like just yesterday that I was hemming and hawing over what would be practical to get with my 20% off coupon, and now here I am again. You see, I'm not big on holiday sets, and I'm kind of off eyeshadow palettes for the moment... so I usually take this opportunity to replenish my needs, rather than my wants. Take a look at what's in my cart so far this year:

 Beautyblender two.bb.clean ($52.00)

I'm a massive fan of the beautyblender, and currently rotate between two of them. But I recently read somewhere that you're supposed to replace them every 3 months (!!!), while both of mine have been around for well over a year... so perhaps time to invest in some new ones?
 Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peel (5 pack - $20.00)

These are amazing. I've been using them for years, and get them every time there's a coupon code. Getting the bigger pack of 30 is a better deal, but $100 can be a little rich sometimes, so it's great they come in a 5 pack as well. These are great for when your skin needs a re-set after some tough times. 

Invisibobble (3 pack - $10.00)

I've heard you can get a cheap version of this at the dollar store, but I have yet to lay eyes on them there, so we're back again with the originals. These are amazing, and the 3 I already have are still going strong, so perhaps the dollar store ones aren't even worth it. Since I've started using these in place of my regular hair elastics, I've had no more snags, no more ponytail headaches, and no more elastic creases and dents. 

This has been on my to-try list for ages, and now that I've finally finished my Kiehl's Ultra Cleanser and my Body Shop Chamomile Cleansing Oil, I think I can justify moving on to this for the winter. My skin has been all over the place lately, so I've been trying to keep my routine as simple as possible so as not to make things worse. This stuff has great reviews, and ingredients my skin loves. 

Smashbox Light It Up Primer Set ($44.00)

I'm already a huge fan of the Photo Finish Primer, so this set is kind of perfect for me. I've heard some good things about the Primer Water too, and am almost out of my Urban Decay All Nighter spray, so it's a perfect opportunity to try something new!

Sephora's VIB Rouge Sale (20% off!) runs from November 4-7, 2016 in store and online. Use the code 20ROUGE for online purchases. VIB members get 20% off from November 11-14, 2016 in store and online with the code 20VIB. 

Happy shopping!
