At last, my favorite time of the year has arrived. And I'm not talking about the inviting spring weather, perfect for brunching in NYC and hot girl walks. I mean the Sephora Spring Savings Event is officially on. But only for Rouge members—aka Beauty Insider members who have spent $1,000 or more within the past year. In that case, not only do we gain access to the event four days sooner than everyone else, but we also get the biggest discount: 20 percent off thousands of beauty faves until April 24 with coupon code SAVENOW at checkout.

While some shoppers use this time to snag everything they've been desperately wanting to try, I save big by shopping for those high-ticket items like the Dyson Airwrap Multi-Styler, and I stock up on products I buy several times a year like the Rare Beauty Liquid Touch Brightening Concealer and Peace Out Salicylic Acid Acne Healing Dots.

So listen up Rouge members: If you want to save the most money and shop the Sephora Spring Savings Event like a pro, take my advice, and I promise you won't regret it. After all, this event only happens once a year—here's how to make the most of it.

How to Save Hundreds During the Sephora Spring Savings Event

In my opinion, there are two rules to save a lot of money during the Sephora Spring Savings Event. First, you know those expensive products that you've contemplated buying? Add. them. to. cart. Because who knows when they’ll be discounted for 20 percent off again.

This is also an excellent time to stock up on products you constantly replace, like concealers, mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, etc. That way, you won't have to buy them full-priced more times than you'd like to. But as a rule of thumb, remember that the more you spend, the more you save and the longer you keep your Rouge member status.

What to Do if You're Not a Rouge Member

Feel no shame in hitting up your group chat to ask your friends if they're Rouge members and don't mind helping you out. IYKYK. Maybe it works out; maybe it doesn't. Either way, you still have a chance to save as long as you're signed up as a Beauty Insider member (which is broken down into three tiers based on how much money you've spent at Sephora within a year). Here's the full breakdown:

  • From April 14 to April 24, Rouge members can take 20 percent off their orders with coupon code SAVENOW
  • From April 18 to April 24, VIB members can take 15 percent off their orders with coupon code SAVE NOW
  • From April 18 to April 24, Insiders can take 10 percent off their orders with coupon code SAVENOW

If you're not a member, sign up now for free to gain automatic Insiders status. And our advice? When the time comes for you to shop, use this event to buy up as much as you can to ensure you're a Rouge member at the next one.

It's a win-win. Scroll ahead to find products Rouge members, like me, can save big on through April 24.

The Top-Rated Sephora Products You Need to Buy for Spring (with Over 1,000+ Rave Reviews)

You've seen it all over TikTok, and at least one person in your friend group is obsessed with it. And unsurprisingly, the tool—which comes with several attachments that tackle many hair concerns like frizz and shine—goes for a whopping $599. But it's marked down to $479 for Rouge members. That's a $120 discount, guys, which is all I needed to hear. And all you need to know is it's incredibly efficient in curling your hair, thanks to its Coanda airflow technology that wraps your hair around the barrel of the curler. Also, all the attachments come in handy and can easily be switched out to dry, curl, straighten and smooth down flyaways, among other things.

Besides helping to reduce acne breakouts, dark spots, redness and inflammation, the SpectraLite FaceWare Pro was designed to help smooth wrinkles and increase collagen production in the skin, allowing for a firmer, more youthful look. It uses a combination of three-minute red light and blue light therapies, and since it's a hands-free mask, you can literally sit back and relax while it works its magic. And on top of saving $91 in my wallet, it comes with a full-sized Advanced Retinol + Ferulic Texture Renewal Serum and Alpha Beta® Extra Strength Daily Peels as a cherry on top.

Best Acne Dot Deal

3. Peace Out Acne Healing Dots Mega Pack

Peace Out

PureWow Commerce Editor Olivia Dubyak said these are her favorite acne dots ever. As she explains, "If I develop a pimple during the day, I throw one of these bad boys on at night before bed, and it fully brings the pimple to the surface and reduces the redness." Yup, it's that simple; thanks to the encapsulated salicylic acid, aloe vera and retinol formula, each dot penetrates pores to help clear breakouts faster, all while soothing the skin. That's why I'm stocking up on a few of these 60-count packs, so I'm never without them.

Best Moisturizer Deal

4. Augustinus Bader The Rich Cream

Augustinus Bader

$180 is no small price to pay every four or six months when you run out of this cult-favorite moisturizer (because trust, you'll want to keep it on deck). Needless to say, I'm tempted to buy two to save in the long run, especially since many reviewers of the cream say they've noticed the reduced appearance of dark spots and a firmer, smoother texture after using it.

Best Hair Styler Deal

5. Olaplex No. 3 Hair Repair Perfector


PureWow Editors had the pleasure of testing the No.3 Hair Repair Perfector, and much to their surprise, their strands instantly went from dull to silky. So I have no doubt that this value size version will come in handy. But here's why one buyer is obsessed: "This is the healthiest my hair has looked since I started coloring it. I am super impressed and will definitely continue using it. My hair is shiny, soft and healthy after just one use!"

Best Perfume Deal



I recommend snagging at least one full-size perfume during the Sephora Spring Savings Event since they have steeper price tags like this Chanel favorite. Reviewers say it has one of the most elegant scents ever, thanks to notes of orange, Grasse jasmine, May rose, patchouli and vetiver.

Best Eyeshadow Deal

7. Natasha Denona Retro Glam Eyeshadow Palette

Natasha Denona

If you cringe at the thought of spending nearly $70 on an eye shadow palette, you're not the only one. I've put off buying this baby for that reason until now because it's marked down to $55 and is packed with versatile greens, pinks and neutral nudes which I can use to create so many different looks this year. Most importantly, buyers say the shades are super pigmented and blend very well, so it's really the only palette I need.
