Happy Friday and hello Sephora savings time!  The summer buying event is here.  The time us ROUGE and VIB members wait for to stock up on all those must-have beauty tools, skincare staples and makeup must-haves.  The way it works is ROUGE members receive 20% off their purchase and VIBs save 15% in store and online now through August 27th using the code SUMMERSAVE.  

Stocking up and saving is such a good feeling.  The change of seasons is such an important time to pay particularly close attention to your skincare routine as changes in the weather mean that your skin will request and require some subtle tweaks and a few significant changes in the way you treat and care for it.  And since the next sale like this won't roll around again until November, now is the time.

One thing I know I'll be wanting is this dryer by Dyson.  As the days turn cooler, I know air drying will become a less frequent luxury.  So, I want to give this one a try as its technology is designed to be gentler to your hair and cut down on the time you need to expose it to heat.  And, it's super quite so if your hubby is still sleeping he'll love this purchase too, haha.

Retinol is a super game changer when it comes to caring for your skin and this powerful yet nonagressive formulation has been giving me beautiful results.  I've also been doing a lot of research on alternate ways to achieve the same age-defying results using non-retinol based products.  This 100% natural serum uses a new ingredient called Bakuchiol to similarly smooth sin and erase those fine lines associated with skin aging.  If you're someone who's never been able to tolerate any form of retinol then this would be a wonderful option to check out.  

Of course I'll also be reaching for the tried and true favorites I consistently need and love to stock up on.  This eye shadow palette, this eye cream and this much loved face oil all fall into that category.  You can shop all these beauty loves in the thumbnails below and find more of what you need over at Sephora.  

What are you guys thinking of stocking up on?  Please let me know...Have a a great weekend everybody and thanks for stopping by!
