Sephora is bringing back mystery samples starting tomorrow. Every day, for 10 days, a mystery sample will get revealed. I always enjoy this promotion and others like it, because it is fun. Some people know how to look into Sephora’s system and find out which sample is coming ahead of time. As I do not know how to do that, do not enter the article if you are looking for a sneak peek. This article is just for tracking and to end with all samples listed in one place by the time the promotion is over. There are clues for what is coming and some of them are pretty obvious.
-Use code MYSTERY10 for a free sample with a $25 purchase. A new sample choice will get revealed everyday for 10 days starting on 09/26/18. As I discover each one, I will edit this article and list them in reverse chronological order. While these codes are always a lot of fun, I recommend checking the regular offers to see if this really is the best one for you.
Day one and two were already announced before I noticed they were offering clues. That makes the game more fun. The clue for day three is it is inspired by a color changing flower. This is one I have no idea on. Day four is infused with 24-carat gold. A lot of products have this ingredient now, but I have some ideas. I’m not sure what started as an NYC salon in 1977 for Day 5, but a quick Google search would yield results for anyone curious.
The clue for Day six is it is a brand named for a day of the week. That could be Sunday Riley or Saturday Skin. Day seven is a well-known acronym. I have a couple of ideas on that one. Both products for Day eight protect strands. This is obviously haircare, but I am unsure what the products are. I wonder what detoxes with zinc and copper on Day nine. Only the Olsen twins come in mind for co-founders who are twins for Day ten, so I think the brand is Elizabeth and James.

What are your thoughts on the Sephora Mystery Samples? Let me know below. Sephora does not inform any Beauty Insider of all promotions. It does list a great deal of them on its Beauty Offers page, but I list some it does not on my Sephora Deals Page. Between the ones it lists and the ones I list, you can catch most of them. Subscribe to emails to get targeted offers. If you’re spending over $25 online, there is always a promo code that you can apply. Most major events run on a set schedule, which is why I track them.

I'm Kimberly. Shopping is always more fun when I've found the best deal available, so I am always on the hunt. My father instilled that in me, and I love that I carry a piece of him. Sometimes, my husband and sons (12 and 7) let me shop for them, too. They do not use as many beauty products as I do. We can all benefit from nice products, even though their routine ends with moisturizer. That is when I can convince my 12-year-old to apply it.
