We've been taking beauty advice from Sephora employees since our high school days—we would be lost in the sometimes overwhelming aisles of makeup, haircare, and skincare products without them. Considering the fact that no one knows Sephora products quite like its employees, Glamour tapped six different Sephora employees from around the country to find out what skincare essentials that can't seem to get enough of themselves. Below, shop the top-of-the-line skincare products that Sephora employees always add to their shopping carts.
Josie Maran Argan Cleansing Oil
"This soothing oil-based cleanser works amazing at night to take makeup off. It's always part of my cleansing ritual. It's gentle, formulated without parabens or sulfates, and it's healing for my acne-prone skin." — Hilary Haynes, Sephora employee at the Michigan Avenue store in Chicago.
Foreo Luna 2 for Sensitive Skin
"This skin-transforming device is great to travel with. It's totally waterproof and completely antibacterial. I use it to cleanse as well as to apply my skin care treatments. Best of all, it only needs a charge every few months, which is ideal for a daily-use skin care tool." — Jan Stewart, who works at the Cherry Creek store in Denver.
Drunk ElephantC-Firma Day Serum
"This refreshing gel serum is great for all skin types. I have acne-prone, sensitive, combination skin, and within a week of use, I started to see correction both with the depth of color around my acne scars and improvement in overall appearance." — Raquel Dayao, Sephora employee at the Powell Street store in San Francisco.
Caudalie Vinoperfect Serum
"I've recommended this gentle yet effective anti-aging serum to women and men of all ages. It works miracles on dark marks due to sun damage or acne and helps with overall skin tone brightness." —Laciann Buchanan, Sephora employee at the World Trade Center store in New York City.
The Sunday Riley Good Genes All-in-One Lactic Acid Treatment
"I use this as a serum daily—the lactic acid helps refine skin texture and diminish age spots while the yeast extract helps accelerate and encourage new cell growth." — Serena Bauman, Sephora employee at the Lenox Square store in Atlanta.
