We Asked These 8 Sephora Employees Their Go-To Beauty Products And Here’s What They Said…
When it comes to the best beauty products and the biggest selection, most people tend to head to Sephora. They have everything. So when it comes to finding the most sought-after, popular products that you must have in your makeup bag, who better to ask than the employees with first-hand experience with every product available.
We wanted to know which products every woman should have in their artillery. These Sephora employees gave us the best products for better lashes, skin, lips and more!
The first product recommended by a Sephora employee was Liaison Hair Bond, Molly Morrell, a Los Angeles employee explained, "This is by far my favorite product we sell - a daily spray to make your hair thicker and healthier, it's wild! When it comes to a simple solution for thinning hair that can reinvigorate hair follicles by stimulating blood flow to the scalp, triggering more hair growth while thickening and strengthening your hair...this is the winner! Liaison’s Hair Bond uses a Growth Bond Complex™ specifically focused on regrowing and strengthening hair. It’s better than any other product on the market today, loaded with essential nutrients to help keep hair healthy, including Citric Acid, Propylene Glycol, Ginseng Extract, Angelica Extract, Vitamin B6, and Biotin… to name a few! Liaison’s Hair Bond is best for people with thinning hair, weak strands, brittle split ends, and unhealthy roots. Highly recommended by every employee I've ever talked to."
2. THE GLOW FAIRY BODY GLOW WAND
Katie Esposito talked about this second product, The Glow Fairy Body Glow Wand. “If you’re looking to get rid of stretch marks, wrinkles, or cellulite, I LOVE this product. Its main ingredient is retinol, which is so popular right now, but mainly because it like, totally works. Just rub the balm over wrinkles, stretch marks, or loose skin and the retinol-packed balm will help revive the skin, making it look more youthful. It literally will glow!”
3. LANEIGE LIP SLEEPING MASK
Store Manager Wendy Brennen loved Laneige’s Lip Sleeping Mask. “It doesn't matter how much lipstick you put on, if your lips are dried and crack, people will be able to tell. And don’t even think about kissing someone! Laneige’s Lip Sleeping Mask helps take care of that by helping repair and moisture your lips overnight. It’s like a super-powered lip balm that will not only protect your lips but help them stay healthy. It’s really a great choice.”
4. THE NO.3 HAIR PERFECTOR BY OLAPLEX
“Whether you think so or not, almost everyone could use some hair repair.” Sales associate Gina Ginsberg told us. “Our hair is so sensitive and even if you take amazing care of it, something like Olaplex’s No. 3 Hair Perfector will still help. It’s the smoothest, best hair conditioner and repairer ever. You can use it every day or like, once a month, either way you’d be doing a HUGE service to your hair.”
5. THE ALL NIGHT LONG-LASTING MAKEUP SETTING SPRAY BY URBAN DECAY
“What’s the point of amazing look if your makeup smears, right?” That’s what sales associate Catherine Lily wants to know. “I recommend this to everyone who shops at the store. I’m like chasing people down trying to get them to buy this it’s so good. Urban Decay’s All Night Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray helps keep makeup on and looking perfect all night. It lasts up to 16 hours, which is incredible. I used this at a summer wedding and I was the only one at the reception without running eyeliner and smudgy foundation. Absolute best!”
6. THE WIZARD DETANGLING HAIR PRIMER BY AMIKA
General manager Matty Simone loves Amika’s Detangling Hair Primer. “It’s the best way to help make my hair look and feel silky smooth after the shower. My hair is naturally pretty curly so anytime I want to do anything to it, it becomes a hassle. Using Amika, I can at the very least manage these curls. People without curly hair swear by it, too because it cuts blow drying time in HALF. It’s amazing. I highly recommend it.”
7. THE ACNE SOLUTIONS ACNE + LINE CORRECTING SERUM BY CLINIQUE
“Spot-treating acne products is one of the hardest products to find, I would know,” says sales associate Lyzie Venick. “Especially one that doesn’t dry out your skin completely. That’s what was troubling me. Every product I found would maybe get rid of my acne, but make my skin look worse with dried out patches. Clinque’s Acne and Line Correcting Serum is the first one I found that doesn’t completely kill my skin. It actually helped remove acne and lines without dry patches. Now it’s my go-to and I recommend it to everyone else.”
8. PAULA'S CHOICE BODY LOTION, GLYCOLIC ACID & SHEA BUTTER EXFOLIANT
“The best body lotion. Ever.” Claims Margot Wellen, a shift manager. “This stuff changed my life, it has amazing ingredients to help your skin look and feel incredible. The main one being a 10% Glycolic Acid, an ultra-effective alpha hydroxy acid that helps exfoliate and rejuvenate skin. It’s a perfect combo with something like The Glow Fairy Body Glow Wand. These two products together will take years off of your skin. It’s unbelievable!”
We wanted to talk further with our investigative reporter Stephanie Marianne who researches makeup brands and products to advise on the best deals available. We asked her to look into Liaison Hair Bond to find out why it’s the most effective and safest eyelash growth serum available. Stephanie tells the story.
Personally, I never believed in the effectiveness of hair regrowth and hair thickeners. There’s a lot of brands out there claiming they work, but most don’t, and many use ingredients that can harm you. I’ve had too many friends tricked into buying sprays and creams just to find out it’s a waste of money and their hair being worse off than when they started. So I’ve avoided it at all costs.
But when I heard about Sephora employees recommending Liaison Hair Bond, something clicked. Then, I remembered just a few weeks earlier, my best friend, who I trust with my life, said she had just started using Liaison’s Hair Bond. She said she was expecting it to work within 4 weeks. I, of course, didn’t believe her. But then I went to visit her to see how her progress was, and I was stunned. I could see her hair getting healthier and longer.
I begged her to let me borrow her Lash Bond. Instead, she gave me a secret 50% off code, SECRET50, and I ordered a bottle immediately.
I received a package two days later and applied the Hair Bond for the first time that night. The application is super simple, after your hair is cleansed and dried, spray the Hair Bond throughout your hair and gently brush it through. You don’t need to massage it in too much, just enough to make sure it’s distributed evenly. That’s all you need!
I, of course, was expecting immediate results, but it actually takes a few weeks to see real results. In the meantime, I started to do my research to find out how Liaison’s Hair Bond works and how it differentiates itself from other hair growth products.
A combination of essential oils and nutrients help not only strengthen hair but reactivate roots that have stopped growing long ago…
It’s quite simple, just as our bodies can exert less energy when we get older (remember staying up all night in your twenties?), our hair follows a similar pattern. When old hairs fall out, typically a new root is triggered and energy is spent building a new hair follicle. However, the older we get, the less energy is distributed to these roots. That’s when thinning and even balding occur.
The key to a fuller head of hair starts with reactivating your roots, and that’s exactly what Liaison’s Hair Bond aims to do. With a Growth Bond Complex that’s filled with amazing ingredients that stimulate scalp blood flow while strengthening hair follicles. Some of the essential ingredients include:
CITRIC ACID Helps reduce build up of oil, dirt, and free radicals that often stifle hair growth.
PROPYLENE GLYCOL An essential ingredient to helping hair lock in moisture for a stronger, thicker feel.
ORIENTAL ARBORVITAE LEAF EXTRACT Stimulates hair growth with increased blood circulation.
ANGELICA EXTRACT Essential to stimulating blood circulation on the scalp for root reactivation.
BIOTIN Essential vitamin B that helps support the enzymes that bring nutrients and oxygen to the hair.
These, plus a handful of other helpful ingredients make Liaison’s Hair Bond an extremely effective way to regrow and support a healthier head of hair.
So, finally, after 4 weeks, I decided to check if I could see results… and wow! The areas of my hair that were previously patchy began to fill out. Plus my hair felt fuller and stronger. I was simply amazed at how good my hair felt.
I’ve been converted into a Hair Bond believer, and hope you will, too.
