We’re Not Getting 2020 Sephora Point Multipliers: Instead Sephora is Now Trying Your Sephora Beauty Win 2020 Secret Code

By Kimberly

We’re Not Getting 2020 Sephora Point Multipliers. Instead Sephora is Now Trying Your Sephora Beauty Win 2020 Secret Code. It does look like Sephora is trying to add offers back in while it continues to water down the beauty insider program. In January 2020, Sephora offered a two-day skincare sale in place of the point multipliers it offered in 2019. This “Your Sephora Beauty Win” gives a secret code for 20% off a single fragrance. While that is better than the 3x points in 2018 and 4x points in 2019 for those purchasing one, it may miss the mark for those purchasing multiples or those who do not get this offer at all. The problem is this offer is targeted. My son did not receive a code. When I tested my code on his account, it did not work.

Sephora Spend Now, Save Later 2020 Beauty Insider Offers

Sephora Spend Now, Save Later 2020 Beauty Insider Offers

By Kimberly

The Sephora Spend Now, Save Later 2020 Beauty Insider Offers will get tracked here. This promotion started in 2019, but I did track them last year. As I’m seeing more cuts to the rewards program in 2020, I’ve decided it is necessary to track even these smaller opportunities for savings. That way, I can compare this year to past years to see how the new offerings really stack up. So far, it is not looking great. To qualify for this discount, you have to spend something now. Then, you get the discount offer later.

All of my Sephora Birthday Gift Reviews 2020 get covered here. I’ve already offered a Sephora Birthday Gift Review 2020 on each of the first four presents released. See the Sephora Birthday Gift Sol de Janeiro 2020 review, the Sephora Birthday Gift Milk Makeup 2020 review, the Sephora Birthday Gift Briogeo 2020 review, and the Sephora Birthday Gift Jo Malone 2020 review below. Sephora will release three more 2020 VIB/Rouge Birthday Gifts throughout the year.

Sephora Skincare Sale 2020

Sephora Skincare Sale 2020 This Weekend Only January 25th and 26th

By Kimberly

There is a Sephora Skincare Sale This Weekend Only on January 25th and 26th. It looks like Sephora is giving us this promotion in place of the 2x points on skincare promotion it took away from 2019 to 2020. This is not a traditional sale where you get a percentage off every skincare item. In order to qualify, you have to purchase an item, then you will get 30% off the second item. It would basically equate to a 15% discount only if the second item equals the cost of the first. The bigger the cost difference between the two items the smaller your discount.

Sephora Rewards Beauty Insider Cash Based Point Option Officially in Beta January 24th, 2020

By Kimberly

The Sephora Rewards Beauty Insider Cash Based Point Option Officially in Beta January 24th, 2020. Rumors have been swirling since last year that Sephora was making a major change to its Beauty Insider Rewards Program this year. Then, a press release leaked that an overhaul would happen sometime after January 15th. Between that release and countless attempts to get users to dump points, I chose to pen What is in Store for the Sephora Rewards Program in 2020. After that, we saw many losses to the rewards program from 2019 to 2020 which prompted me to write Updates to the Sephora Rewards Program 2020 to track reward losses and gains.

Sephora Beauty Insider Sweeps January 23rd through January 31st

By Kimberly

There is hosting yet another chance to dump points (win money) via the Sephora Beauty Insider Sweeps running from January 23rd through January 31st. This one gives away $25,000 a day for 9 days. Each of the 9 winners will be drawn and notified on February 21st. I am not even hating on those who choose to take part. Sephora even got me twice last year. Just like the lottery, someone has to win, so this will be fruitful for the winners.

Updates to the Sephora Rewards Program 2020

By Kimberly

I wanted to have one article to go over Updates to the Sephora Rewards Program for 2020. Promotions quietly went away in 2018, like the 2x, 3x, 4x points on everything in August. We last saw that in 2017. Granted we did receive an extra discount for the first time in August 2018, so we turned our heads. In 2019, the Weekly Wow just stopped never to be seen again. We saw the Holiday Bonus for VIB members dip from 20% to 15% off. Then despite being on the schedule, the Merry Minis promotion never came to pass. There were other promotions we lost along the way. Those are just the first that came to mind. Thus, the reason, I decided to write them down. The changes are coming fast now.

Sephora VIB Promo Codes 2020 With VIB Perks, Sales, Promotions, Deals, GWP Offers, and Other Sephora VIB Member Exclusives 2020

By Kimberly

Sephora VIB Promo Codes 2020 With VIB Perks, Sales, Promotions, Deals, GWP Offers, and Other Sephora VIB Member Exclusives get covered here. Separating Sephora VIB Perks 2020 from other 2020 Sephora Promotions lets us see the difference between the tiers. Any Sephora VIB member (and Rouge member) can redeem these offers, but I also track Sephora Beauty Insider and Sephora Rouge offers. The 2020 Sephora Beauty Offers Page also caries more promo codes than I list on my Beauty Insider page. My goal is to track all Sephora VIB Promotions 2020, not just the ones that get advertised. By the end of the year, we can look back and see what 2020 perks Sephora VIB members get over Sephora Beauty Insider Members.

Sephora Sample Bag 2020 Promo Codes

By Kimberly

Whenever a 2020 Sephora Sample Bag gets released, I will list the Sephora 2020 Sample Bag promo code below. Most sample bags repeat around the same time each year, so looking at the Sephora 2019 Sample Bags is the best way to see when they might repeat in 2020. Whenever a sample bag corresponds with a specific event, I will also link that article below. There are times when the sample bag depends on your Beauty Insider Status. I track Beauty Insider, VIB, and Rouge promotions separately, but I will make a note of any that are exclusive to a rewards tier. Unless otherwise specified, all Beauty Insiders get the same offer.

2020 Sephora Point Perks 50, 100, 250, 500, and 600

By Kimberly

Many of the 2020 Sephora Point Perks drop in the Rewards Bazaar at the beginning of the month. They are getting released at other times though. This article covers the 50, 100, 250, 500, and 600 Point Perks. I do cover all the large point perks in another article. It always sends at least one email a month, on the first Friday. This article will cover the perks Sephora chooses to spotlight in those emails. While I may at times find ones Sephora did not email and post them below, I do not do that often. That means this is not a complete listing of all offers.

What’s Coming to the Sephora Rewards Bazaar in 2020

By Kimberly

New 2020 Sephora Rewards Bazaar Point Perks get released in the every Tuesday and Thursday from 9am-5pm PST. The most common release is right at 9am, so arriving at 9am on a drop date will yield the best chance of grabbing your desired perk. Sephora emails a list of upcoming perks for some of the bigger items arriving in the Rewards Bazaar within that month. It always sends at least one email a month, but they usually arrive near the 5th and the 20th on months where it sends two. This article will cover the perks Sephora chooses to spotlight in those emails. While I may at times find ones Sephora did not email and post them below, I do not do that often. That means this is not a complete listing of all offers.

What is in Store For the Sephora Rewards Program in 2020? Is it Changing to a Cash Based System? Rumors have been circulating all year that it would adopt a program similar to Ulta’s in 2020 and while I know we might be only a few short days away from knowing, I decided to step onto my soapbox for a moment.

Sephora 2019 Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday Beauty Deals

Sephora offers some amazing deals around Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday. The Black Friday preview is up on the app, so I decided it is time to start the Sephora article to track all of them. Some of these promotions traditionally received dedicated articles of their own, but I decided to combine them this year. This way, everyone can see all the offers in one place and choose the one they like the best. I will keep updating this through Cyber Monday, so the article will grow over the next week. Assuming we see all the promotions we usually see, we should get these Black Friday offers, Cyber Monday mystery GWP bags, and more. The Customer Appreciation Bag in its typical format usually comes out in November. That did not happen this year.

Many Sephora Favorites on Sale Now and the 2019 Give Me More Lip Review

Sephora dropped a lot of favorites into the sale section today. I’m here to bring you my Sephora Favorites 2019 Give Me More Lip review. As these are among my favorite purchases all year, I also want to quickly go over the others. Which ones are worth it? Some are worth it even at full price, so the discount only sweetens the deal. Others need to get discounted further before I think they’re worth it. I like when the kits are a mixture of full-size and sample products. My limit when they are all samples is $45, which prices me out of some kits.

Sephora Favorites Superstars 2019 Review, A 2019 Holiday Bonus Sale Recommendation

I want to offer my 2019 Sephora Favorites Superstars Review, A 2019 Holiday Bonus Sale Recommendation review, because the Sephora 2019 Fall Bonus Sale runs through the 11th. This is something worthy of adding to your shopping list. After some disappointing Sephora Favorites pricing (like the 2019 Sun Safety Kit), I feel this one is priced well. Getting it on sale only adds to the deal. Sephora Favorites are one of my favorite things to purchase whenever there is a mix of full-size and sample products. My limit when they are all samples is $45, which prices me out of some kits. This one comes in under $45 and has two full-size products.

Sephora Collection Mask Sets: Penguins in Paradise, Where Is the Penguin, and Frosted Party Skincare Surprise – A 2019 Holiday Bonus Sale Recommendation

The Fall 2019 Sephora Holiday Bonus Sale runs November 1st through November 11th. I’m here to bring you some sheet mask set reviews worth purchasing. They are Penguins in Paradise, Where is the Penguin, and Frosted Party Skincare Surprise, which are all sets from the Sephora Collection. Holy Sheet was reviewed separately, but I definitely recommend that one as well. After some disappointing Sephora Favorites pricing (like the 2019 Sun Safety Kit), I feel these are priced well. Getting it on sale only adds to the deal. Sheet masks are one of my favorite indulgences, but I still rarely purchase them individually at full-price. Whenever I can get them in a set or on sale, it is something I cannot pass up.

Sephora Favorites The Next Big Thing Review, A 2019 Holiday Bonus Sale Recommendation

I want to offer my 2019 Sephora Favorites The Next Big Thing review, because the Sephora 2019 Fall Bonus Sale is just around the corner. This is something worthy of adding to your shopping list. After some disappointing Sephora Favorites pricing (like the 2019 Sun Safety Kit), I feel this one is priced well. Getting it on sale only adds to the deal. Sephora Favorites are one of my favorite things to purchase whenever there is a mix of full-size and sample products. My limit when they are all samples is $45, which prices me out of some kits.

The Fall 2019 Sephora Holiday Bonus AKA The 2019 Sephora VIB Sale With Discounts at 20% Off for Rouge, 15% Off for VIB, and 10% Off for Beauty Insider Members Event

The Fall 2019 Sephora VIB sale, AKA the Sephora 2019 Holiday bonus runs from November 1st through November 11th. If you need some ideas on what to buy, my sale recommendations are below. Sephora introduced a new format this year. For the first time ever (in the holiday sale), Rouge members get 20% off, VIB members get 15% off, and Beauty Insider members get 10% off. In recent years, VIB and Rouge members shared the same discount. Beauty Insider members got 15% off. This means VIB and Beauty Insider members each see a 5% reduction.

Sephora Collection Holy Sheet Mask & Self Care Set Review

Sephora’s Holy Sheet is one of the sets I look forward to most each year. This year, it is the Sephora Collection Holy Sheet Mask & Self Care Set. It incorporates more types of products. The set gets released every May and October or November. While sheet masks are always the star of the set, we get more types of products with every new set that comes out. That is not necessarily a bad thing, because as much as I love sheet masks, I look forward to seeing what new items we’ll get to try when a new set comes out. I’ve also reviewed some other Sephora Collection Sheet Mask Sets

Sephora Beauty Insider Sweeps September 26th Through October 5th

There is another Sephora Beauty Insider Sweeps running from September 26th through October 5th. This one gives away $25,000 a day for 10 days. Each of the 10 winners will be drawn and notified on October 6th. Even though I did not win anything with the last promotion, I am taking my chances again. Paying 150 points for a chance to win $25,000 does seem like a lot, especially given that 200-300 points entered you for a million dollar prize in the last game. I guess I am a glutton for punishment, unless I actually win something.

Play! by Sephora Fall Must-Haves PLAY! Box Review – Winning Beauty

This is my Play! by Sephora Fall Must-Haves PLAY! Box review. Sephora is offering it for free with a $50 purchase using code MYPLAY. The photo of the promotion is exactly what I received, so I am guessing others will get the same box as well. It is Box 2198125 (F) is from April 2019, Winning Beauty. If you are considering subscribing to the Sephora Play Box, you can see my synopsis of a year of Play! Boxes or look at the monthly boxes individually. I review those differently than I am reviewing this single box.

Sephora Beauty Insider Shelter From the Storm Umbrella Review – Available in Stores Now – Not in the Rewards Bazaar

The Sephora Beauty Insider Shelter from the Storm Umbrella is available in select stores. My review (below) comes sans rain, because we do not get a lot here. Sephora makes sturdy umbrellas, and the one I received nearly four years ago is still in great shape. Click on that link to see the same awesome model is now four years older in the photos below. Why do I need a new umbrella when the one I already have is in great shape? It was commandeered by my husband years ago, and he never returned it. Considering I like this one better, I am finally okay with him keeping the other one. There is something very classic looking on an all black umbrella. Add the black and white stripes to the inside, and it just gives it an added touch of something special.

Sephora VIB Rouge Private (Closed Door) Event Holiday Preview 2019

By Kimberly

This is my overview and review of the Sephora VIB Rouge private, closed-door event for Holiday Preview. It is the first private event for VIB Rouge members this year and is likely the last if the pattern from last year repeats. The event took place at all Sephora locations on Saturday, September 14th from 8:30am-10am. This event gave Rouge members first access to the holiday launches. Is going worth your time? Every event is different. Some stores provide the bare minimum while others go all out, so no two experiences will be the same. I recommend reading Inside a Sephora VIB Rouge Event for those who have never attended who are trying to decide if this event is worth their time.
