It’s a special kind of thrill to see something you want online, buy it, and magically receive it a few hours later. If you’re the embodiment of the meme that shows a dog staring out the window waiting for their delivery order the second after they hit “purchase”—especially when it involves beauty products—here’s some good news for you: Instacart and Sephora have teamed up to bring you skin-care and makeup goodies for same-day delivery.
Instacart is an online hub that works with retailers (mostly grocery stores) to offer same-day delivery or pickup, and Sephora is the very first beauty retailer to join the platform. While it’s great to get your groceries sent straight to your door without any schlepping, the site’s nationwide partnership with Sephora allows for regular beauty shopping to feel like Christmas (basically). That means that, yes, you can have your most coveted skin-care, makeup, fragrance, hair-care, and other self-care essentials sent straight to you within just sixty minutes of ordering them. All products are sold at the same price as in stores, and you still get deals and points if you are a Sephora Beauty Insider.
A curated selection of Sephora items are ready for delivery via Instacart from more than 400 stores in North America (including Canada). To use the service, log onto the Instacart website, add whatever your heart desires to your cart, then choose the delivery window that works with your schedule. This partnership comes just in time for holiday shopping (great news for my fellow last-minute gift shoppers).

1. Peter Thomas Roth Acne Treatment Mask, $52
Dealing with maskne (aka breakouts that stem from wearing a face mask)? Same. The star ingredient of this face mask is sulfur, which is a really strong, really effective pimple quasher, and it works with clay and aloe to clear your pores without drying your skin out.
2. Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel, $14
For an everyday cleanser that wipes your face clean from gunk and makeup, this gel one by Mario Badescu does the trick. It’s gentle enough for all skin types, but fruit-derived alpha-hydroxy acids really dig into your pores so that they’re nice and clear.9
3. Living Proof Restore Repair Mask, $38
Dry hair season is here, which calls for a nourishing mask in your hair-care regimen. This formula repairs damaged strands with strengthening amino acids and tucuma butter, and leaves your hair much smoother, shinier, more moisturized.
4. RMS Beauty Buriti Bronzer, $28
The easiest way to fake like it’s summer all year long? Swipe on some bronzer for a natural-looking tan with this cult-fave pot of golden goodness from RMS Beauty, which is also filled with skin-moisturizing ingredients (think shea and cocoa butter).
5. Clarins Hand & Nail Treatment Cream, $30
If your hands are parched from all of the sanitizing that you’re doing, invest in a solid repair cream. This buttery formula delivers hydrating TLC to dry hands and nail beds, thanks to a concoction of butter and botanical oils.
