‘Tis the season to treat yourself—and others. Thankfully, Sephora’s Holiday Savings Event is back to remind us that there is no such thing as having too many beauty products. With the holidays quickly approaching, there has never been a better moment to give your mother the Dyson Airwrap she keeps using secretly when you’re not around, your spouse their very own body wash, and your sister the designer scent she’s been stalking online. As for you, well, surely your basket is already packed to the brim with goods from your wish list, and Sephora made it simple for you to check them off one at a time.
The much-anticipated sale starts today, October 28, for Sephora Rouge members who will receive 20 percent off their entire purchase. On November 1, VIB members will join the fold with 15 percent off their purchase while Insider members start saving on November 3 with 10 percent off. Everyone will be able to enjoy major savings from Sephora Collection with 30 percent off in-store and online. All sales for all membership tiers end on November 7. The code for all membership discounts is SAVINGS.
If you’re not a Sephora Insider, fear not—the program is free to join. Even better, Sephora is giving all membership tiers free shipping, regardless of your purchase amount. Scrolling helplessly through Sephora’s pages takes forever, so here are 20 items you should add to your cart immediately if not sooner.
