evergreen beauty products that you can find at Sephora

As per typical Canadian weather, what I love to wear in the summer doesn’t always work as well during the winter months. However, this is not the case in terms of my daily beauty product lineup. After a recent scan over my inventory, with the exception of a few seasonal additions, it turns out that almost all of my favourite beauty products are in fact evergreen and are worn throughout the year.

As such, I have gone into a bit of a deep dive in terms of my favourite products that I am currently loving and have recommended to friends and family. You may recall some of my favourites mentioned in past blog posts.

Whether you are shopping Sephora’s latest savings event or need to freshen up your own inventory, from skincare to fragrances, I’m sharing the essentials that I absolutely must on hand for spring, summer, fall, and winter.

Below you will find everything categorized under:

  3. HAIR
  4. BATH & BODY

Consider this as my master shopping list for evergreen beauty essentials that I purchase at Sephora all through the year.

Also, because I am super paranoid about what goes on my skin, you can rest assured that each and every item listed under SKINCARE, MAKEUP, HAIR, and BODY is free of parabens and/or categorized as a clean product.

Evergreen Skincare


I alternate between my light exfoliation and oil based (recommended by my naturopath) cleansers depending on what my makeup situation is that day. I recently ordered this purifying gel cleanser, to help with my temporary acne situation, and I am also loving it!


This unconventional exfoliator was recommended to me for removing fine lines (bla!) and so far it’s lived up to the hype.

I try to use a purifying mask 1-2 times a week. I have tried both the clay and charcoal masks and honestly, I like them both. It’s really a matter of preference.

I keep this deep exfoliating cleaner in the shower and also use it about 1-2 times a week


Recently I started using the Fenty Skin toner, to help minimize the uninvited pores on my nose. I am also considering adding this Caudalie one to my rotation.

I just started using this night moisturizer with retinol (alternative) benefits.

Before my makeup in the morning, I have been applying this light moisturizer . My bestie is obsessed with her gel moisturizer from LaNeige and I kind of want to try it too.

1-2 times a week I apply this hydrating mask, after removing the clay one, and leave on overnight.

Retinol Alternative

Seconds after discovering lines on my forehead, within months of turning 30, I went on a retinol deep dive and started with this bakuchiol + peptides serum. It’s a lot less abrasive and would recommend as a first step if you have sensitive skin.

I just started using this Caudalie retinol alternative. The Tatcha serum also looks like a great retinol alternative option.

Acne & Scarring

This gentle Salicylic Acid alternative helps with those occasional hormonal breakouts.

A little bit of this spot remover goes a long way in helping remove any acne and blemish spots. This is supposedly fantastic for colour correction.

These salicylic acid dots will work for you while you’re asleep.

This serum helps fade out those stubborn scars and spots that need to go away.

Lip Care

Your lips need to be exfoliated too… trust me they will thank you.

This nourishing lip balm has a starring role in my bedtime routine. The Fresh hydrating lip mask is also delightful, and I have heard amazing things about the LANEIGE ones too.

Evergreen Makeup


A primer may not be a very glamourous purchase, but it is an essential one. I have heard great things about the Smashbox primer and was also recommended to try this Hourglass one.

Either the SPF 30 tinted moisturizer (OPAL 01) or the SPF 15 loose powder (FAIR) are great foundation options that offer extra sun protection.

I have added the Bobbi Brown foundation to my basket for days when I need extra coverage.

I keep trying new concealers but always end up coming back to this one (AFFOGATO)… it’s just so good.

If you’re also not a fan of a heavy blush look, then you too may love Merit’s clean and subtle cream option (SOFT PEACH).

… if you prefer a powder blush (VELVET CRUSH)

I love having my highlighter and bronzer all in one compact. I am also curious to try the PATRICK TA one.

Eye Makeup

As I absolutely must always have this (EBONY) eyebrow pencil on hand, it truly is one of my evergreen beauty essentials.

I rarely wear eyeliner (ZERO or SMOKE) but when I do it has to be waterproof

Morning or night, the neutral shades in this eyeshadow palette have you covered.

My auntie introduced me to this Dior mascara (090 BLACK) when I was a teenager and I haven’t looked back since. My favourite waterproof mascara is also Dior.

Setting Powder & Spray

Loving the extra blurred effect with this loose makeup setting powder. The Too Faced and BareMinerals ones are also solid options.

… if you prefer a pressed setting powder

Currently my favourite setting spray to lock my makeup in place. I love the slight added blurred effect. This Urban Decay one is great too.

Lip Balm

I have lost count of how many times I have recommended this lip treatment. I also really love this honey one

Hair Care

Shampoo & Conditioner

A basic and colour friendly shampoo, for all hair types, that I keep within my rotation. This shampoo also works really well with fine hair.

The conditioner is just as simple and reliable as the shampoo. For fine hair this is another great conditioner option, but you may need a little extra help if you have extensions.

Confirming that this dry shampoo is brunette and black hair friendly (I’ve had both). I would also consider giving this one a try.

Hair Mask

That glossy hair mask look in less than 30 seconds… and no I’m not kidding.

An intense hydrating and repair mask that doesn’t weigh down my hair. My love for honey really wants me to add this honey infused one to my hair mask rotation.

Style Prep

I apply this dual action anti-frizz and heat protectant cream immediately after my hair has been washed. This serum can be applied on wet or dry hair.

A dual heat protectant and anti-frizz spray, this has been my go-to for protecting my hair from all of my hot styling tools for quite some time.

I’ve been applying a touch of this lightweight oil to the ends of my hair for years. This dry conditioning oil is even lighter and I apply it last, or second last if I am using hairspray.

Hair Spray

An everyday hairspray that I love to use for keeping soft curls intact after curling and lightly brushing them out. I bring out this hairspray for when I need an extra long lasting hold for events and occasions.

Bath & Body


Either the Amethyst or Rose or Herbivore scrubs would be great exfoliating options. This First Aid Beauty one currently lives in my shower.


Wash and lightly exfoliate with this multitasking body soap bar.

Rich in almond oil, that will lather into a milk-like texture, this is a luscious treat for your skin. This is a really nice light option.

Add a little extra to your bath time with a calming and floral-scented bath bomb (or two). This soak and bubble bath would also be lovely.


I currently have this lotion at my home workspace. The L’Occitane one is also excellent.

I recently bought this cream to help counteract any uninvited cellulite. The L’Occitane and Sol De Janeiro creams are also great cream options.

I keep the NĂ©cessaire and L’Occitane hand creams nearby during the day and apply this very rich one before bed.

Evergreen Fragrances

A powdery floral that will work for each and every season.

I feel like this fragrance makes everything seem just a bit sweeter.

While this is a warm floral scent, it is pleasantly light.

I suppose this is technically a spring and summer scent, but that hasn’t stopped me from wearing it all year long

A sweet and classic floral scent that I keep at my office desk.

Simple and endearing, this evergreen fragrance will add a little extra beauty to your day all through the year.
