I am a self professed Cardio Queen– which means almost every night (Yeah, I work out at night…) I am dripping in sweat.  What I’ve found most often is when bloggers recommend a dry shampoo, it is that more often than not, they are using the dry shampoo in the hopes of simply avoiding hair washing, not to absorb sweat.  I have been on the hunt for years to find a dry shampoo that is for women that sweat regularly.  This is so far the best dry shampoo I’ve tried, and I swear I’ve tried them all, from drug store to luxury brands.  This one doesn’t dry my hair out or make it more coarse.   I’m a customer for life.  Dare I say that my search for the best dry shampoo is over?!?

This is the holy grail of setting sprays.  It totally lives up to the hype, people!  I spray a light misting before I walk out the door, and woolah! My makeup not only last for hours, but actually looks flawless.  This product has changed my life, seriously!  With this set, you are basically getting TWO for the price of one.  It’s a no-brainer!

This is the perfect Christmas gift for the tween or teenager in your life.  The shadows blend nice and the makeup smells so good- exactly like peaches.  It’s a good value for all three items.

This is a perfect sampler to try some of Buxom’s best selling products.  These products are awesome for making your lips fuller and is a great value!  Also makes a perfect gift for your teen or tween!

I have been on two rounds of Accutane and what remains isn’t pretty!  I’ve read rave reviews about the GloPro changing your skin’s texture.  This is one of the items I’m purchasing from this sale with the hope that it will help my leftover acne scarring.

So, last year I bit the bullet and purchased this and it was a total game changer for my hair.  This is the time to purchase with the discount code if you’re going to splurge… plus you get some amazing Quai products to boot.  What’s not to love about this set?!?

If you follow me on Instagram, you already know that I love this Shampoo and Conditioner duo.  You’ll also know that I love changing my hair color!  This duo has transformed my hair!  It’s worth the price if you have dry, damaged, coarse, over processed, and slow growing hair.  I can’t rave about it enough!

I love these sets because it lets you sample several perfumes and then redeem the scent card for your favorite one!  It’s a great value during the sale.  There are always several of these sets online, but I have linked the one for the classic perfumes.  This makes an amazing gift because the person can redeem the coupon for their favorite set and enjoy sampling all the different perfumes.

I get asked often what kind of makeup brushes I like and I really like the Sephora Pro line of brushes.  This set is a great starter brush set and is a great price for the number of brushes you are getting!  The price for brush is under $15 each.

This trio for Cheeks contains two of my all time favorite products.  Every time I wear this blush, my mom asks me what blush I’m wearing.  It’s a classic blush and bronzer and the price is right for all three staple makeup wardrobe items.

I love these sets because I love trying different mascaras.  What’s different about this set is for the price you not only get to sample several, but you get a coupon to redeem for your favorite one.  It’s a no brainer and two of my all time faves are in the set.  Run, don’t walk to buy this now!

12.  Overnight Face Mask for Dry Skin
Last year, I started getting extremely dry skin.  It could have been a result of being on Accutane, changing hormones, or older age (ugh!), but regardless, I searched high and low for a mask that would hydrate my skin.  This is fabulous for winter time.  I’ve tried them all, and I keep coming back to this one.
Okay- I’m obsessed with these eyeshadows.  Anyone I’ve recommended them too has loved them as well.  This set is pricey, but I know it’s well worth it because the shades are gorgeous, easy to use, and will really make your eyes pop!

Another lip set!  Ugh!  These are my guilty pleasure.  I can’t stop buying them!  This set includes a Charlotte Tilbury full size too, sealing the deal!

Okay- so we all want longer eyelashes, right? I don’t have the time to get extensions, nor do I want to pay the exorbitant price, deal with the upkeep, or chance ruining what little eyelashes I have left.  I have tried several lash serums already– and this particular one is next on my list.  It’s a great price during the sale and I’m curious to see if it lives up to the hype.

Well- there you have my top sale picks for this year!   I hope this helped you navigate the sale…and remember– all your favorite staple items are also on sale with the discount codes above so now really is the time to stock up!

Thanks for reading my blog and I hope you all come back soon!
