Sephora Friends & Family Starts Today!

Sephora's Friends & Family event starts today and runs through 11/2! With code FF2009, you'll save 20% on pretty much all your online purchases (gift cards are excluded). This is the perfect time to start your holiday gift buys, splurge on something that would otherwise never be discounted, or stock up on old favorites. Check out my 9 recommendations to make the most of that discount code! What's on your list?

Clarisonic Skincare Brush: This little gadget totally changed my skin! It's pricey, but worth it if you'll use it everyday. The 20% off really takes a good chunk out of its hefty $195 price tag, bringing it down to $156.

Shu Uemura Skin Purifier Cleansing Beauty Oil: Grab the gigantic 15.2 oz size during the sale and it's only $57.60, compared to the usual $72. I fell in love with Shu's cleansing oils recently and now I can't get enough - see my review here.

ghd IV styler: Probably my favorite flat iron. After my Sedu Revolution died last year, I bought a new T3, and then was sent the ghd. Though I balked at the price tag and thought the cheaper T3 would do just as good a job, I have to admit that the ghd is truly awesome. It heats up incredibly fast, stays hot, and does an amazing job smoothing my hair out without frying it. It's ridiculously expensive, but if you can swing it, go for it. Pick up the Urban Angel set and get the styler, a brush, and two styling products. $300 value, regularly $210, F&F price $168.

Donna Karan Cashmere Mist Deluxe Size Body Lotion: Donna Karan recently introduced this super-oversized $32 body lotion, so if you can't get enough Cashmere Mist, this one's for you. $200 value, regularly $98, F&F price $78.40.

Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Powder: Fluff a little bit of this translucent, silica-based powder over foundation or tinted moisturizer for a flawless, soft-focus look. I didn't get the hype at first, but once I started using it I became a believer! Regularly $30, F&F price $24.

Fekkai La Creme Luxueuse: This delicious body creme, chock full of shea butter, has been one of my favorites for years. Jar after jar, I never tire of it. Regularly $65, F&F price $52.

NARS Monoi Body Glow & South Beach Multiple Set: As deals go, this one's pretty hard to beat. The set has a retail value of $52, originally priced at $49, reduced to $35, and $28 with the F&F. You're getting both products for less than the price of the Multiple alone!

DDF Fade Gel 4, or really, any expensive skincare product that you'd normally have to buy at full price. This is the one I've used in the past to fade the freckles on my face, and it really works! Regularly $56, F&F price $44.80.

Viva La Juicy Gift Set: Since I have an unhealthy obsession with this fragrance (even though I feel like I'm entirely too old for anything Juicy), this set is an especially good deal. 1.7 oz fragrance plus 4.2 oz lotion and shower gel - $106 value, regularly $75, F&F price $50.
