"The Magic Is in the Mushrooms"—This Serum Is Flying Off Sephora Shelves

Updated 05/06/19
Sephora Best Sellers
Lolita Says So

The comment section is notorious for being one of the most vicious places on the internet. It's where angry reviewers and unhappy customers go to spew their venom (whether warranted or not), so when we see positive comments and conversations about a specific person, place, or thing, we're all ears. This is especially true when it comes to hunting for the right products to add to our skincare routine. Glowing reviews with honest, thorough feedback make it a lot easier to invest in the right thing.

 

And because Sephora is like a candy store for skincare rookies, junkies, and everyone in between, we decided to reach out to its team to learn about its recent best sellers. Then, we scoured the site for all the top-rated products and braved the comment section to see what the people have to say about them. Find out about the 19 products at Sephora that are flying off the shelves and delivering major results for every skin type and concern so you know which ones are actually worth the price tag.

High-quality ingredients. Sometimes you get what you pay for, and this is one of those times." — MillaVanilla

From the People: "Easily the best moisturizer I've ever used. The cream is light and soft, yet goes on thick and provides great hydration for hours."—aspad21

"My skin easily breaks out if I over-moisturize, especially with oils, but easily dry and flaky if I under-moisturize, particularly because I tend to be acne-prone for two weeks before that time of the month and use cleansers that end up drying my face out. This works great because it’s light, but you can use more if you need it. The consistency is like a mousse. No off-putting scent, either. Doesn't break me out." —poemi

"Love! Solved my congested and dehydrated skin. I get rosacea from acne and most products are too rough. This is perfect and looks great under makeup." — DBA1020

"This ultra-luxe foot cream is just wonderful… I'm an avid runner, and I was looking in Sephora for a repairing and smoothing foot treatment and came across this product. This is now my favorite foot cream." — nikkibeachgirl

I've been using this for a couple weeks now, and I'm sold! I've been trying a lot of samples of similar products but never noticed a lasting difference in my skin." — krisau

"This is a product I've repurchased and have a backup for so that I don't run out of it. I use it about three or four nights a week over my Sunday Riley Luna Oil. It helps to keep my skin free from congestion and helps with pigmentation. It does have a strong smell from the lactic acid, but it's totally worth it for the strength and efficacy." — kiki9880

"I ordered this from the Ole Henriksen website because I couldn't wait! I am always looking for the perfect moisturizer under makeup, and I haven't had great luck. Many of them tend to pill up or lessen wear time. This one is fantastic under makeup, and I have tried it under five different foundations so far. It feels deeply hydrating but is not heavy at all. Sinks in quickly and ACTUALLY color corrects in a noticeable way." — aliciamlay

What It Is: An anti-aging and acne-fighting cleanser 

From the People: "I have been battling hormonal acne for several years now, trying all sorts of different treatments from Sephora and the drugstore. Benzoyl peroxide is just so drying on my mid-40s skin that I hate to use it. Then I stumbled upon this… What a miracle! After using it for a few days, my skin is totally clear for the first time in ages! I can't believe it! I don't have to use a leave-on topical treatment anymore, which has left my skin softer and less dry. I highly recommend this even for stubborn acne." — dasharks

"There are not enough stars in the universe to award this product. I'm 35 and thought I was out of the acne woods… I saw results and healing within a week, and conditions continue to improve. I'm a convert, and I'm preaching the gospel according to Murad to anyone who will listen!" — anonymous

It really does work! My skin looks brighter and firmer, and it actually slims my face down. I think it'll be perfect after eating a cheat meal and the sodium makes your face bloat."—drinkmorewater

"A 10-minute magic facial… This device has saved my dry and blemish-prone skin! I use the blue light for skin clarity, red light to repair my skin and the amber light under my eyes to eliminate darkness!

What It Is: A leave-on lip mask that replenishes hydration and plumpness

I just happened to see this while I was waiting in line and out of desperation to relieve my cracked lips I decided to try it out. Holy god. Honestly, I would have been happy just to not have cracked sore lips, but this did sooooo much more. I have had dry raisin lips for so long, I literally forgot what my lips looked like normally, and for the first time in years, I saw my real lips.

This hydrated my lips, made them look plump, full, and healthy again." — Maitje

"I have tried everything from oils to the $50 La Mer balm, and this blows it away. I’ve had it for three days, and on the first day I had it ( I tried it on in store), I noticed a difference within a few hours." —ColonelsPride
