Sephora VIB sale must-haves

Hi, beautiful people. 👋🏼

I posted on my Instagram story after I’d left the sale and my DM’s floooooded with questions about what I got – so of course the solution to that is offering you all a full post with everything I got + the prices after the 20%.

If you’re not familiar with the VIB sale, it is Sephora’s once-a-year sale for those who have spent a certain amount of money in a certain amount of time, and they are offered a % off for a few days!

I went a lil crazy this year, and I have had my eye on a lot so I thought, “fuck it.” Sephora never has sales and I gotta take advantage of it while it’s here!

I know what you’re thinking – “he’s crazy”, “damn how much did he spend”. Well, I am crazy. And I did spend a lot.

Let’s first chat about my Drunk Elephant purchases, which took up most of the purchase total.

Come C About Me set, left to right:

  • Beste Jelly Cleanser (30 ml/1 fl oz)
  • Umbra physical sunscreen, SPF 30 (15 ml/0.5 fl oz)
  • C-Firma Day Serum (30 ml/1 fl oz)
  • B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Gel (15 ml/0.5 fl oz)

price before discount: $88, price after discount: $70.40

If you’re not familiar with Drunk Elephant, they’re very popular for their serums n such. I have heard great things and have been wanting to try these out for so long. With this gift set, you essentially pay for the C-Firma day serum and pay only $8 to try out the rest of the products! Perfect for someone trying them out, or if you wanted to gift the other items.

This is the crown of the Drunk Elephant collection. *Insert crown here*

T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial (50 ml/1.69 fl oz)

Virgin Marula Oil (3ml)

price before discount: $80, price after discount: $64

Babyfacial is an at-home exfoliating “facial” that clears away old dead cells and clears out the pore lining. 25% AHA/2% BHA blend of glycolic and salicylic acids that’s meant to dramatically smooth out the skin and reveal a more even-toned radiant, baby-soft complexion.

Next up: NightBright set – T.L.C. Glycolic Night Serum (8 ml/.27 fl oz), Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil (8 ml/.27 fl oz)

price before discount: $28, price after discount: $22.40

Honestly I just wanted to try out the Night Serum and figured this would be a good way to do so! And I didn’t get a full size of the Marula Oil in the previous set, so I could use another mini.

Lippe Balm (3.7 g/.13 oz)

price before discount: $18, price after discount: $14.40

I got sucked into this one. *Shrug* This product promises a plump look and a more defined lip line. I was reading the reviews, and people agreed. So of course I had to try it! (Also, it’s yellow – and yellow is my happy color.)

Youth To The People Superfood Eye Cream (15 ml/0.5 oz)

price before discount: $35, price after discount: $28

My very first eye cream. One of my favorite skincare gurus online is Jewlie. And she has been using this for months! The product is organic and 100% vegan. Tried it on yesterday and loved it – so light and a little goes a long way.

Milk Makeup Blur Stick (5.4 g/0.19 oz)

price before discount: $14, price after discount: $11.20

This is meant to be a blurring primer, to minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines, with a matte finish. I have their cooling water stick and love it!

Beauty Blender, black

price before discount: $20, price after discount: $16

Nothing exciting here – everyone and their mother knows what this is. It is my first however. Excited to try it out with concealer.

Boscia’s Besties Kit, left to right:

  • Luminizing Black Mask (30 g/1 oz)
  • Purifying Cleansing Gel (50 ml/1.7 fl oz)
  • Tsubaki Swirl (15 ml/0.5 fl oz)
  • Charcoal Deep-Pore Exfoliating Peel (50 ml/1.7 fl oz)

price before discount: $36, price after discount: $28.80

I blame the yummertime boys for this one. They’ve been working with Boscia lately and it got me super curious. Tried getting the pink mask but it wasn’t available in store. Sad face.

Tweezerman Tweezers, black

price before discount: $23, price after discount: $18.40

Again, nothing exciting. Just wanted to show everything I got!

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask (80 ml/2.7 fl oz)

price before discount: $45, price after discount: $36

Soooo excited for this one! I’m sure you’ve seen this all around social media. First of all, the packaging is beautiful and feels super expensive. It also smells incredible. Can’t wait to try it out and let you know what I think! I would really like to try the blue berry cleanser as well.

Ready, Set, Style! Styling Spray Collection contents, left to right:

  • Bumble and Bumble Thickening Dry Spun Finish (40 ml/0.95 oz)
  • Living Proof Full Dry Volume Blast (95 ml/3 oz)
  • IGK Beach Club Texture Spray (60 ml/1.7 oz)
  • OUAI Texturizing Hair Spray (1.4 oz)
  • DRYBAR Detox Whipped Dry Shampoo Foam (1.8 oz)

price before discount: $32, price after discount: $25.60

I’ve recently been wearing my hair down more, so I am really new to these kinds of products. Figured this would be a good time to try them out!

And this would have been the end, but I went back. *Covers face in shame* I don’t have the products with me to take photos of, but I will list them below.

Jack Black Instensive Therapy lip balm, black tea + blackberry

price before discount: $7.50, price after discount: $6

Jack Black It’s The Balm, 4 piece set

price before discount: $25, price after discount: $20

Dr. Jart Water Drop

price before discount: $36, price after discount: $28.80


Aaaand, that is IT. If you’re reading this, thank you so much for tagging along with me. I hope this was useful to you! There is still one day left of the sale if you wanted to grab any of the products listed above. My DM’s are always open if you have questions about any of the things I got. And I want to say that this post, of course is not sponsored and all thoughts are my own as always.

I adore you. Treat yourself.

Xoxo, Cody Johnathan.
