Sephora Spring Sale Wishlist

Hey everyone! It’s that time of year again! It’s almost time for the Sephora VIB Spring Sale! If you’ve never shopped this sale before, it’s a sale for VIB and up. Historically it’s been 15% off of everything and has happened around the first week in April! I decided that I would do a wishlist post to maybe inspire those of you who are looking to try new things for a good deal!

Please keep in mind that I’m not going to buy all of this! In fact, I’ll probably only get 2-3 of these products! But it’s fun to dream and I love browsing Sephora’s website, so I’ve added a few super wishlisty items that I probably won’t purchase for a while! I hope you like this fun little post!

The Truth About Parabens

If you’re an avid makeup buyer, you’ve probably seen a barrage of products that proudly proclaim “Paraben free!” But what does that even mean? Sure, it’s paraben free, but why do we need to get rid of parabens in the first place? And what the heck is a paraben anyway? Today I want to answer those questions and hopefully help everyone gain a little more understanding about the products you’re purchasing.
