Ask any beauty lover, and they’ll tell you they wait all year for the Sephora Beauty Insider Sale to drop. The perennially loved savings event has blessed Beauty Insiders with hundreds (nay, thousands) of markdowns on skin care, hair care, and makeup products, from April 14 to April 24. We’re talking bronzing drops for faking a sun-kissed tan, chrome makeup must-haves, gift sets that’d be great for Mother’s Day, and so much more.
How to Shop the Sephora Beauty Insider Sale
Chances are if you’re reading this post, you’re already a Sephora member. If not, the moment to sign up is right this second, especially since it’s totally free to join. First-time shoppers, listen carefully before diving right in. There are different levels of access to the products on sale at Sephora. It works like this:
- Rouge members (anyone who’s spent $1,000 or more in a calendar year) have first dibs, with 20% off their entire purchase from April 14 to April 24.
- VIB members (shoppers who spent at least $350 last year) get to shop the sale, beginning April 18 with 15% off all orders.
- Insiders (anyone who simply signs up for the loyalty program) can shop from April 18 to April 24, with 10% off all orders.
In addition to its bevy of brand discounts, the retailer is also offering members 30% off Sephora Collection products. To cash in on the deals, everyone—no matter the tier—has to enter the code SAVENOW at checkout. (Heads up: The promos can’t be combined, though they do run at the same time.)

Of course, with so many incredible brands on the menu—NuFace, Tatcha, and Rare Beauty, to name a few—you want to make sure you’re getting the best deals while supplies last. Even GHD hair tools can be yours! Check out what’s good from the Sephora Beauty Insider Sale 2023, with our favorite picks ahead.
Best Makeup Deals at the Sephora Beauty Insider Sale
Eager to switch up your go-to summer makeup as you make your way back under the sun? Now’s the time to try some TikTok-beloved products, including Milk Makeup’s multitasking cream blush, which Hailey Bieber swears by, and Tower 28’s SOS Daily Rescue Facial Spray, featured in Sephora’s Vacay All Day set.
In case you missed it, chrome makeup is the glazed-donut nail trend…for your face. The trend is peaking this spring, thanks to metallic shadows from Kulfi and Rare Beauty’s silky highlighter, which will help you achieve the mermaid-en-route-to-a-rave look.
The Sephora spring sale is also a great time to shop magical wands from the likes of Caliray and Charlotte Tilbury. Snag a bargain set of the former’s best-selling (and nonrunny) mascara or try a new peach-perfect shade from Charlotte Tilbury.
Best Skin Care Deals at the Sephora Beauty Insider Sale
Sephora’s skin care department is seriously impressive‚ and we spotted so many Glamour Beauty Awards winners in the lineup. Our top picks include the NuFace—this time in a pretty pink and bundled with the very necessary accouterment—and the legendary Ole Henriksen Banana Bright eye cream for that most stubborn dark undereye circles.
The Sephora Spring Sale is also the best time to take a chance on a new launch. We’re eyeing Kosas’s milky DreamBeam mineral sunscreen and the new Silk Serum from Tatcha, which presents you with a retinol alternative that’s easier on skin and leaves you with a little shimmer.
There are absolutely no wrong answers, so whether you’re loading up on bronzing drops for summer or refreshing your blending sponge stash—this time in a fun mushroom shape—the limit of skin care deals doesn’t exist.
Best Hair-Care Deals at the Sephora Beauty Insider Sale
All set on skin care? Right now is also a great time to find deals on triple-digit hair tools, like the ever-popular Dyson Corrale, T3’s one-step blow-dry brush, or GHD’s best-selling (and Glamour Beauty Award–winning) hair straightener.
Per usual, Sephora’s on top of bundling our tried-and-true loves (see: Briogeo’s thickening hair line). But there are also amazing bundles, like the Hottest in Haircare discovery pack, featuring new favorites from buzzy brands from K18 to Ceremonia to JVN.
Investing in good hair care pays off, so lock in hardworking formulas from the likes of Crown Affair (hello, leave-in conditioner of our dreams) and Oribe. The brand dropped a skin-care-for-your-scalp serum, which functions like a really great nonaerosol dry shampoo.
Best Body Deals at the Sephora Beauty Insider Sale
We plan on emerging from winter with the softest skin ever. To help us with that, we’re picking up Sol de Janeiro’s cult favorite Bum Bum Cream in a limited-time Jet Set bundle. (Psst: It’s also a former Glamour Beauty Award winner.) Speaking of jet-setting, whether you’re heading to a beachside getaway or to the local coffee shop, sunscreen is a nonnegotiable. We nominate Supergoop’s shortcut to glowing skin.
For those of you eyeing the fragrance aisle, don’t miss the sure-to-sell-out perfume sampler set of Sephora’s best tropical scents. If you want the classics (to give yourself or, perhaps, as a Mother’s Day gift), Sephora’s way ahead of you and bundled luxe fragrances from Prada, Jo Malone, and more.
And last but not least, sandal season is almost upon us, which means it’s time for a mani-pedi. Give yourself the salon treatment by stocking up on hydrating hand cream, and some fresh polish courtesy of Gucci.
