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 Tips. “This is by far my favorite choice for spot-treating acne, pimples, whiteheads, red or dry skin, and blemishes. The Glow Fairy Glow Tips are cotton swabs filled with a highly-concentrated formula to clean, hydrate, and reduce inflammation of blemishes while helping diminish their appearance and produce healthier skin. I found out about Glow Fairy when a co-worked offered me a secret 50% off discount code SECRET50 and I couldn’t have been happier with the results. A combination of Salicylic Acid, Glycerin, and Guava Fruit Extract helps lift away dirt, oil, and free radicals while providing much-needed hydration to the blemish area. As quickly as one use will help diminish the appearance of any blemish, with daily use helping prevent scarring and other issues. This is at the top of my list and 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 they all insisted Glow Fairy was top of the list. We wanted to talk further with our investigative reporter Stephanie Marianne who interviewed the employees to find out how The Glow Fairy Glow Tips 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 mentioned the Glow Tips to my best friend, who I trust with my life. Before I could finish my sentence, she was running to the bathroom to grab a box of the Glow tips. She swore by Glow Fairy Glow Tips. 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 Tips. 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 with 25 cotton swabs filled with a highly-concentrated and effective formula. You pull out a cotton swab and bend it at the fold until you hear it break open. The formula in the handle then soaks the cotton swab. Gently rub the swab on your blemishes to coat them with the effective ingredients. Then, you just need to let the formula dry on your skin. Of course, I looked into the mirror expecting a miracle… but alas, it usually takes longer than a few minutes.
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 Tips so effective. There are three main ingredients helping reduce your acne and blemishes.
SALICYLIC ACID A common ingredient for acne that helps shed dead skin cells from the top layers of skin to allow for healthier skin to rise to the top. This can help reduce inflammation, redness, and speed up the healing process.
GLYCERIN Very essential for helping the focused-area retain moisture to better heal itself. Just like all parts of the body, hydration is extremely important, and glycerin is an ultra-hydrator.
PSIDIUM GUAJAVA FRUIT EXTRACT Especially vital for the skin, this is the outlier ingredient that many other products don’t use. It’s an antibacterial to help reduce inflammation, and even pigmentation. It works extremely fast while helping prevent future infections.
I woke up the next morning to check the blemishes I used the tip on 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 Tip believer, and I hope you will, too!
