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!
Katie Esposito talked about this first product, The Glow Fairy Glow Patches. “This is by far my favorite choice for spot-treating acne, pimples, whiteheads, red or dry skin, and blemishes. The Glow Fairy Glow Patches are highly-effective star-shaped patches that help diminish the appearance of pimples and blemishes while preventing further skin damage. I found out about The Glow Fairy Glow Patches after a co-worker offered a secret 50% discount code SECRET50. I loved how quickly the patches worked! Loaded with hydrocolloid, the patch pulls dirt, oils, and sebum from the skin while helping retain moisture, reducing inflammation and redness. Wearing a patch overnight can help reduce the appearance of a blemish by over 50%! This are super helpful when trying to fight a pimple. Highly recommended! "
2. LIAISON LASH BOND
The second product recommended by a Sephora employee was Liaison Lash Bond, a growth serum that helps build stronger lashes. Molly Morrell, a Los Angeles employee explained, “Liaison has it all, a good value, safe ingredients, and (brace yourself) it works! I first tried Liaison when I received the 50% off code SECRET50. This was before we had it in the store. I used it for six weeks and had some of the longest, most luscious lashes I’ve ever seen. I was so surprised. When we got it in the store, every employee started using it. The ingredients are natural and don’t cause irritation or burning, and the instructions are straightforward and simple. It’s really the best of everything packed into one product. Effectiveness, safety, and value all rolled into one.”
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!”
While these Sephora employees recommended some great products, everyone agreed the Glow Fairy Glow Patches were at top of the list. We wanted to talk further with our investigative reporter Stephanie Marianne who interviewed the Sephora employees and helped create the must-have list and how The Glow Fairy Glow Patches worked for her. Stephanie tells the story.
Personally, I never believed in the effectiveness of spot treatments, or creams for blemishes. There’s a lot of brands out there claiming they work overnight, and that’s just too hard to believe. I’ve had too many friends tricked into buying some wild cream just to find out it’s a waste of money. So I’ve avoided it at all costs.
But then I told my best friend, who I trust with my life, about Glow Fairy Glow Patches. She immediately ran to her bathroom to grab a box of patches. She was so excited! She said it was the only spot treatment that helped diminish the appearance of her pimples, red spots, blemishes and dry skin. I, of course, didn’t believe her. But then she showed me a photo from the night before, and I was stunned. She had three small blemishes that were completely gone from her skin! I begged her to let me borrow her Glow Patches. Instead, she gave me a secret 50% off code, SECRET50, and I ordered my own immediately.
I received the package within two days and started using them that night. The application is very simple. Each box comes packaged with 18 star-shaped patches with a highly-concentrated and effective formula. You just place one of the patches on top of your pimple or blemish. That’s it. I put two on and went to bed. Of course, I imagined feeling some type of tingling or magical transformation, but alas, it takes all night to work.
So while I waited, I looked into the science of Glow Fairy. I wanted to know more about the ingredients that make Glow Fairy’s Glow Patches so effective. I learned there’s one min ingredient doing most of the magic: hydrocolloid.
What is Hydrocolloid?
Hydrocolloid is a moisture-retentive ingredient that is able to absorb liquids including dirt, oils, free radicals, and sebum from the skin. When you use it, it is able to pull all of the worst oils from a pimple, helping reduce inflammation and redness. Within one to two nights of using a patch, you can reduce a pimple almost completely. It’s amazing!
I woke up the next morning to check my blemishes. I peeled off the Glow Patches and was amazed. Each blemish was reduced by HALF the size. They were barely noticeable. Usually it takes a week or more for a red spot to go away. By the next morning they were completely gone. Unbelievable.
I’ve been converted into a Glow Patch believer, and I hope you will, too!
