If you live your life according to the Sephora calendar, then you already know that holiday season officially kicks off the first week of November with the annual Sephora Holiday Bonus event. Right now, Sephora Beauty Insiders have exclusive early access to the 2019 holiday offerings (gift sets and advent calendars galore) and can shop everything with a major discount that only comes around during the most wonderful time of the year.
If you're a Sephora Insider, you may have already received your email breaking down the event details in full. But if it got trapped in Spam, or you're just an ordinary Sephora shopper without the Insider clout, we've laid out exactly how to save. All Sephora VIB Rouge members (customers who spend $1,000 or more annually) have exclusive first access to shop everything Sephora holiday, and have the most substantial discount with 20% off every Sephora purchase made in-store or online between now and November 11th.
What's more, that 20% off extends across the Sephora sale section — which just so happens to be stacked with bestsellers marked down by 50% right now. Among those is a 3-piece Ole Henriksen skin-care gift set valued at $72 that Rouge members can get for just $40 with their discount — for reference, that's the post-tax price of the best-selling Banana Bright eye cream on its own. Plus, there are six more pages of sale section where that came from, with brands like Becca, Stila, T3, and more marked down by up to half. In short: Don't sleep on the Sephora sale section this week.
Let's not forget the other tiers: Sephora VIB members (those who fall in the second tier, spending $350 over the course of the year) get a smaller, but still substantial 15% discount on all purchases made online and in stores between today and November 11th. Sephora Insiders (the third tier, which you can join just by giving Sephora your email address) can shop with a 10% discount right now.
Again, it's free to join the Insider tier of the Sephora Rewards Program, which means now's the time to sign up if you want to get an early jump on some holiday shopping and save (and super save on the sale section) while you're at it.
