10 Products Skin Experts Always Buy at Sephora featured image

To many of us, Sephora is beauty paradise. Even as a seasoned editor, I walk into the store and it’s instant eye-candy; I’m bound to discover something I’ve never seen before and leave with more than I planned to. I also love watching #SephoraHaul videos on social media, and I love when a friend sends me a picture of everything they bought and asks for my thoughts. These are 10 products skin experts snag on their Sephora shopping trips, and why they love them.

1 / 10

Wander Beauty Baggage Claim Rose Gold Eye Masks ($26)

“When I stop at Sephora I always pick up these eye masks. The rose gold foil helps retain heat and prevents evaporation, allowing the maximum amount of serum to easily sink into your skin. The middle layer is elastic so the mask will not slip off while you’re wearing it, and the third is a cellulose fiber that condenses and delivers key ingredients efficiently, giving you all the skin-loving benefits you need. Hyaluronic acid delivers hydration to help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and aloe leaf extract and lavender oil offer a cooling effect, while soothing and calming the under-eye area. It’s a true, multitasking eye treatment.” 

—Celebrity aesthetician Natalie Aguilar

ILIA Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 Foundation ($48)

“I’m obsessed with tinted SPF, and I recently bought this one at Sephora. The texture of the product is beautiful, and it contains plant-based squalane, which hydrates skin and improves firmness without clogging pores. Its main ingredient is niacinamide, a powerful form of vitamin B3. It also helps with texture, minimizing the appearance of pores, softening lines, and promoting even tone.”

—Joie Tavernise, medical aesthetician and founder of JTAV Clinical Skincare

Lancer Skincare The Method: Polish ($80)

“This is a gentle exfoliator formulated with extra fine crystals to give you the benefits of removing debris and dead skin cells from the surface of your skin, and yet is gentle enough for sensitive skin types. An exfoliator is an essential product to have in your weekly skin-care routine to prevent clogged pores, breakouts, and more importantly, allow for regeneration of new skin cells to decelerate aging.”

—Mila Davis, aesthetician at Skin to Smile

Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser ($36)

“I also like to pick-up one of my favorite green cleansers by Indie Lee that can double as an exfoliating mask. It has a berry blend that lightly foams to gently wash away makeup and impurities. This antioxidant-rich formula doubles as an exfoliator when used as a mask for five minutes before rinsing, helping to smooth uneven texture and minimize the appearance of enlarged pores.”

—Natalie Aguilar

SK-II Pitera Facial Treatment Mask ($95)

“This has a unique ingredient, pitera, that leaves you feeling cool and refreshed, but more importantly, leaves your skin hydrated, increases its elasticity, promotes even skin tone, and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.”

—Mila Davis

6 / 10

Youth to the People Triple Peptide + Cactus Hydrating + Firming Oasis Serum ($54)

“This past winter, I purchased this serum and have been loving the results. I always look for peptides in serums to try, as I have found that they are the most hydrating and firming for my skin. I also love that it’s vegan, cruelty-free and comes in recyclable packaging.”

—Joie Tavernise

7 / 10

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask ($22)

“This leave-on lip mask intensely moisturizes your lips while you sleep. It can also pair as a lip balm. It contains vitamin C and hyaluronic acid—two of my favorite ingredients! It hydrates your lips leaving them soft and smooth.”

—Dr. Adrienne O’Connell, medical director and president of Laguna Beach Aesthetics

8 / 10

Caudalie Vinoperfect Brightening Glycolic Peel Mask ($39)

“This is an enzyme peel mask with glycolic acid that leaves your skin radiating after just one use. Glycolic acid is a powerful ingredient and helps to exfoliate the skin, increase cell turnover, and boost collagen production.”

—Mila Davis

9 / 10

Supergoop! (Re)setting Refreshing Mist SPF 40 ($32)

“I love the idea behind this: it’s an ultra-fine face mist with SPF to set makeup. I wouldn’t solely rely on this for SPF coverage, but I love it for reapplication of UV protection throughout the day, while refreshing your look.”

—Dr. Adrienne O’Connell

10 / 10

Sephora Collection Triple Action Cleansing Water ($12)

“From Sephora’s signature line, I love the micellar water as it removes makeup, but also leaves skin soft and smooth. They also make a mini version that is small enough to travel with.”

—Dr. Adrienne O’Connell
