Sephora decided to surprise us with a beauty insider appreciation event/VIB sale and I wanted to show you my haul and tips for shopping the sale! Here are the details of the event:
Beauty Insider Appreciation Event
August 24th - September 3rd
Rouge Members: 8/24 20% off YESROUGE
VIB: 8/30 15% off YESVIB
INSIDER: 8/30 10% off YESINSIDER
WHAT I BOUGHT
**NOT MENTIONED IN VIDEO BECAUSE I HAD TO BUY ONLINE:
1. Stock Up on Essentials
Whether you are getting 10% off or 20% off, it's still something! We all know Sephora never has sales, and their "sale items" are few and far between. This is the perfect time to stock up on the products that you use every day! Here are a few of mine:
2. Splurge on the Expensive Items
There are a TON of pretty expensive items that I am tempted by at Sephora between skin care and hair that I can never get myself to buy. But 20% off a $400 blow dryer? I can't pass that up, especially if I've been eyeing it for a while!
3. Add Products to Your Cart The Night Before
I usually recommend this for those of you who are not Rouge. Typically when the sale starts for VIB and Beauty Insiders, a lot of the good products are already sold out. If you add your favorite products to your cart the night before, all you have to do is wake up and check out, OR wait until midnight and get whatever is in your cart so you don't have to worry about missing out!
4. Gift's and Gift Sets
I believe this is just a surprise beauty insider appreciation sale from Sephora, which means there will be another VIB sale sometime this year, but it never hurts to stock up on holiday gifts now! I usually enjoy the curated Sephora gift sets and these are always safe gifts for friends and family who are beauty lovers to experiment with new products! Here are some of my favorites:
5. Overnight Shipping
If you're shopping online for the sale, beware! Last sale, I stocked up on all of my favorite items just to have to wait 3 weeks to get them because I chose standard shipping. If you want them right away, go ahead and select the fastest shipping method. This may bring your total back up to the 10-20% discount you got, but if you are patient enough, you'll get them eventually!
