Sephora Gift Guide - Skincare Under $10

 


Hi, friends! Today’s post is the second installment of my Sephora Gift Guide series. I know it’s only September, but it is never too early to start holiday shopping!

Be sure to check out my other guides:

Sephora Gift Guide - Makeup Under $10
Sephora Gift Guide - Makeup Under $20
Sephora Gift Guide - Makeup Under $30
Sephora Gift Guide - Makeup Under $40

This guide will consist of the best skincare products Sephora has to offer for $10 or less. I know what you’re thinking - Sephora actually has things under $10 that are good? YES! They most certainly do.

Sephora just released their holiday sets, but only two of them made this list, so today’s post will be a list of things that you can pretty much get at any time of the year. The holidays aren’t the only time of the year we give gifts to people (or to ourselves), right?! But, if you are shopping for the holiday season, these small gifts, which are all $10 or less, are the perfect “something small” for your friends and co-workers (assuming they like makeup/skincare, of course).

Also, If you’re a parent whose child(ren) are starting to get curious about makeup and skincare, some of these products would definitely be winners for the stocking this year!

If you’re reading this before 11/19/18, be sure to take advantage of the annual Sephora Fall VIB Sale! More information on the sale can be found here.

So, without further ado, let’s get started!

Also, any time you are planning on making an online purchase, don’t forget to use Ebates! AND SEPHORA IS A PARTICIPATING STORE YAY! Use Ebates every time you order something online so you can get a bit of your money back! (Some stores even offer in-store cash back) I’ve made over $500 in cash back from Ebates since I started under 2 years ago and I literally only buy makeup LOL so if you’re not using it, you’re totally missing out! I wrote a review on Ebates when I first started using it here.

Clinique - Take The Day Off Micellar Cleansing Towelettes for Face & Eyes Mini Size | $4.50

clinique take the day off micellar cleansing towelettes

Clinique’s Take The Day Off line of products are well-known for being some of the best makeup removers around. This mini pack of cleansing wipes (10 sheets) is perfect to slip into a purse for those on-the-go moments! These would also be great to pack in a gym bag for a quick “freshen up” after a workout!

 

Clinique - Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm Mini Size | $9.50

clinique take the day off cleansing balm

While the cleansing wipes are great to use on-the-go, the Take The Day Off requires rinsing, so it’s not the best for on-the-go moments. However, I can totally attest that it is one of the BEST makeup removers around. Sometimes a wipe just isn’t enough to get every bit of makeup off, but the cleansing balm totally does the job. The normal size of this product is quite bulky, so this mini size would be perfect for traveling.

 

Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel/Lotion+ (0.5 oz/15 mL) | $5

clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel

Rated over 4 stars on Sephora, this is a great moisturizer that is light-weight, fast-absorbing, and super hydrating. The Gel is designed specifically for those with combination to oily skin and the Lotion+ is designed for those with dry to combination skin. Moisturizer is always something pretty personal and can be hard to pick out for someone else, so these mini sizes are great to give as gifts without spending a fortune!

 

Clinique - Hello, Great Skin Kit For Oilier Skin | $9.50

clinique hello great skin kit for oilier skin

THIS IS AN AMAZING SET, which is limited edition for this holiday season (I believe). It includes a 3-step skincare regimen for oilier skin types to achieve a clear and glowing complexion. This is a great way to try out a skincare routine without shelling out the big bucks for the full-sized products.

For only $9.50, you get:

  • 1 oz/29.6 mL tube of Liquid Facial Soap Oily Skin Formula

  • 1 oz/28.3 g bottle of Clarifying Lotion 3

  • 0.5 oz/14.8 mL tube of Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel

Considering it’s $5 for just that size of the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel (above), this is a great deal!

 

Boscia - Blotting Linens (many varieties-100 Sheets) | $10

Blotting papers are miracle workers! All of these Boscia Blotting Linens remove excess oil, but each one has its own added benefit. The Black Charcoal Blotting Linens actively purifies pores, and keeps skin clear, refreshed, and refined. The Clear Complexion Blotting Linens control excess oil, purify pores, and help prevent future breakouts, without disturbing makeup. The Green Tea Blogging Linens help soothe the skin while absorbing any excess oil and controlling shine, all while leaving your makeup undisturbed.

 

Boscia - MakeUp-BreakUp Cool Cleansing Oil Mini Size | $10

boscia makeup-breakup cool cleansing oil

The Boscia MakeUp-BreakUp Cool Cleansing Oil is one of the best oil cleansers on the market right now because of its effectiveness and gentleness. As an avid oil cleanser user, I love that it comes in a mini size - perfect for traveling!

 

Boscia - Sheet Mask (3 varieties) | $8

I think we all know how fun sheet masks are, right? Even better if they work really well! The convenience of them makes them so appealing. All of these Boscia Sheet Masks are bio-cellulose masks, which means they conform to the face to ensure maximum absorption, but they all have different effects. The Sake mask instantly brightens, minimizes the appearance of hyperpigmentation, and hydrates for a glowing, even complexion. The Tsubaki mask provides serious hydration to leave skin smoother, softer, and more supple. (Tsubaki is anti-aging!) The Charcoal mask reduces the appearance of pores and purifies skin by gently absorbing impurities.

 

Sephora Collection - Hydrating Mist (rose & Coconut) | $7.50

This product is probably a little extra, but aren’t all of us beauty lovers at least a little extra? (The beauty lover in your life probably is, too.) This mist is the perfect thing to keep in a purse for those moments when you just feel like your skin needs to be refreshed! Your makeup could feel super dry, your skin might be sunburnt and need some soothing, or you might just feel like you want a refreshing mist! For whatever reason, I can assure you that this mist feels good!

 

Sephora Collection - Cleansing & Exfoliating Wipes (many varieties) | $3-7.50

These are solid makeup wipes for a very affordable price! Some of them are exfoliating wipes with one side being the rough exfoliating side and the other side being a smooth cleansing side. All of the different scents make it super fun and they all actually have unique properties to them. For example, the Cucumber Cleansing Wipes are anti-fatigue, which are supposed to give you a little pick-me-up! There are a bunch to choose from so I’m not going to list them all, so please have a look through them. :)

 

Sephora Collection - Blotting Papers/Films (many varieties-100 Sheets) | $8

Just as I said with the Boscia Blotting Linens above, blotting paper is pretty much a life saver for anyone. No one likes a shiny t-zone! (The nose is a total problem area for me.) A quick little dab with a blotting paper and you’re good to go!

Shop on Sephora:
Blotting Papers | Blotting Films
 

Sephora Collection - Sleeping Mask (many varieties | $4

Ooooh more masks! These are sleeping masks, which means you leave them on your skin overnight, so they can be a bit messy if you go to sleep right after applying it. However, leaving them on overnight ensures maximum absorption. There are many different ones to choose from and they all sound amazing. Each one is only $4 and you can totally get multiple uses from one, so it’s a great deal!

Side note: How fun would it be to get your girlfriends together for a mask party with these?!

 

Sephora Collection - Face Mask (many varieties) | $6, Buy 3 Get 1 Free

Yay more sheet masks! There are SO MANY to choose from that I honestly don’t know how anyone would choose. But, with the buy 3 get one free deal, just buy them all!

 

GLAMGLOW - BUBBLESHEET Oxygenating Deep Cleanse Mask | $9

GLAMGLOW BUBBLESHEET Oxygenating Deep Cleanse Mask

Yes, I know what you’re thinking - it’s another sheet mask. BUT THIS ONE IS DIFFERENT. Have you seen the carbonated masks that bubble up on your face? Well, this one is like that! It’s deep cleansing and leaves your skin radiant, but c’mon, we all know those things are just bonuses. The bubbling is the real seller here. And it being in a sheet mask form definitely is a pro when it comes to cleaning it up!

 

OLEHENRIKSEN - Cleansers (many varieties available) | $10

I’ve definitely been hearing more and more good things about OLEHENRIKSEN as a whole recently and these mini sizes makes it easy to try a few of the brands’s best-selling products without committing to buying the full-sized products. Even though I’ve said this a few times already in this post - mini sizes are great for traveling!

 

First Aid Beauty - Face Cleanser Mini Size | $10

First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser Mini

Is it just me, or has this brand been receiving a lot of love across social media recently? But, it is definitely well-deserved! I’ve tried a few of their products and I was impressed. They totally get the job done so even if I haven’t tried this particular cleanser, I have no doubt that it’s great. All of their skincare products I’ve tried are honestly amazing.

 

First Aid Beauty - Clean Canyon Set | $10

This is a limited edition holiday set from First Aid beauty that is an amazing value! It includes:

  • 2 oz/56.7 g Pure Skin Face Cleanser 

  • 0.34 oz/9.6 g Coconut Water Cream

Considering that the 2 oz tube of Face Cleanser mentioned above is being sold at $10 (even though it’s slightly different than the one in this set), the Coconut Water Cream is practically free!

 

Philosophy - The Microdelivery Exfoliating Facial Wash (2 oz/60 mL) | $8

Philosophy The Microdelivery Exfoliating Facial Wash

If you are (or the person you’re shopping for is) looking for a gentle exfoliator that doesn’t dry out the skin, this is it. It has tiny micro-exfoliating beads that gently removes impurities, leaving brighter and smoother skin.

 

And that’s it for my under $10 Sephora skincare shopping guide! I hope you found it useful for your next trip to Sephora or for shopping for the beauty lover in your life!

So many of these items are also great as “starter” products, so if you’re a parent just looking to get some small products for your child(ren) that’s starting to wear makeup and care about skincare, this list is a great place to start. You’ll also probably get cool parent points! LOL.

Thank you all for reading and keep an eye out for my upcoming shopping guides! I plan on doing lists for other price points soon!
