I haven't made many purchases these days. Let's be honest, I wear the same exact clothing most of the time and my biggest appearance change is from a ponytail to wearing my hair down—but I will always find a reason to snag something from the Sephora. And while the mega-retailer's biggest sale just ended, there is still affordable beauty at Sephora that actually work and that I'll use until the very last drop.

Ahead, I'm sharing my must-haves, which include everything from the best hair-styling product for curls I have used to a natural deodorant I'm praying actually keeps me stink-free. Continue scrolling for all the items currently in my Sephora cart.

  1. 1. Ilia Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 Foundation

    99 percent of the time I don’t wear makeup, but if I do, I like something minimal like the Ilia skin tint. It feels and looks just like your skin, and I love that it has both SPF and skin-hydrating ingredients such as niacinamide, squalane, and hyaluronic acid.

  2. 2. Kosas Cloud Set Baked Setting & Smoothing Talc-Free Vegan Powder

    I love to set the Ilia foundation with this powder. It truly feels like nothing on the skin, but further enhances the glow from the skin tint.

  3. 3. Tower 28 ShineOn Jelly Lip Gloss

    I almost forgot how good a clear, shiny lip is until I got my hands on this Tower 28 lip gloss. I love it because it isn’t sticky, and it instantly makes me feel cuter and more put together (bonus points when I add my gold hoops). There are a range of colors, so if you’re someone who likes a bolder look, I recommend this gloss in the shade Fearless.

  4. 4. Bread Beauty Supply Hair Mask Creamy Deep Conditioner

    I have naturally curly hair, and moisture is extremely important when it comes to my routine. I spend a lot of time in the sun, and I want to make sure I’m giving my curls some extra TLC, especially as summer approaches, so this mask seems like an obvious choice.

  5. 5. Nècessaire The Deodarant With AHA

    I feel like I am the only person who has yet to try any of the Nècessaire products and the deodorant is high up on my list. I have been on the hunt for a natural deodorant that actually works, meaning it doesn’t leave my armpits feeling like a swamp or smelling like a hot and humid summer day in New York City, and I’ve heard only good things about this one.

  6. 6. Topicals Like Butter Mask for Dry, Sensitive, & Eczema-Prone Skin

    I’ve been wanting to try Topicals for quite some time, but need to finish up some other products before switching. This mask for dry skin is definitely on my list, especially as I begin to spend more time training outdoors.

  7. 7. Briogeo Curl Charism Rice Amino + Avocado Leave-In Defining Cream

    If you have curly hair, you already know how hard it is to find a product that works. I am used to using four-plus products to get my hair to look bouncy, shiny, and voluminous, that is until I tried this curl cream. After conditioning and detangling in the shower, I apply this to damp hair and let it air dry—no other products needed.

  8. 8. Ilia Limitless Lash Lengthening Mascara

    I love wearing mascara to enhance the length of my eyelashes, but all the options I’ve tried in the past tend to clump my lashes together or flake, but this Ilia mascara doesn’t. In fact, it keeps my lashes looking soft and natural while lengthening them.
