16 Days of Deals Replaced 25 Days of Minis at Sephora for 2018

See all 2019 Sephora Promotions, Sales, GWP, Deals, Promo Codes, and Events.

Every year, Sephora has a holiday countdown featuring an assortment of surprise minis. It is called the 16 Days of Deals this year. Prior to 2018, this countdown event included 25 days of minis. It has adjusted to 16 days for this year. While it is too soon to say if we will see 16 again next year or return to 25, I am guessing we will see the event in one form or another in 2019.

This promotion is akin to an advent calendar where Sephora releases a new deluxe sample for the promotion everyday. Beauty Insider members can use the promo code to select the mini they want the most. It will start with one mini on December 5th and end with the 16th mini on the 20th. Minis are available the day they release and while supplies last. More popular minis will run out-of-stock quickly, but there is always a handful of options left by Christmas Day when the final mini of this promotion releases. Expect some minis to stay in stock until after the new year, because the promo code will work until all inventory is gone. Each mini is available with a $25 purchase. There are some people who know how to look into Sephora’s system to see what is coming in advance. I do not know how to do that, so I will only post the minis after Sephora shares them. This article is for tracking, not spoiling promotions. That said, I will make some guesses based on the clues and remove my guesses as the actual items get announced.

In 2016, the promotion was 25MINIS, which included 25 days of minis.

This program goes back farther and even has times when it was 26 days, but you get the point. It is usually 25 days making this year an adjustment to the promotion., Inc.

What are your thoughts on the Sephora 16 Days of Deals? 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.

Deal or No Deal? What Do You Think?
