Best Sephora Skin Care Products
This mega sale couldn’t have come at a better time, as we’re switching our skin care routines from light summer creams to heavy winter creams and oils. The colder months often bring dry skin, so it’s important to take care of your barrier with everything from nourishing face masks, to deeply hydrating face creams and even dewy foundations.
There’s also a wide world of skin care tools and devices, all of which you can score at a discount. Facial cleansing tools and brushes, at-home facial steamers, plus micro-current, and LED masks are solution-oriented skin supporters, no matter the season. And if you can’t choose just one, opt for a bundle, like the one from NuFace, which comes with the tried-and-true device, plus an eye and lip enhancer attachment, so you get the best of everything.

Best Sephora Makeup Products
Now is the perfect time to try that new gloss, contour stick, highlighter, or bronzer you’ve had your eye on. Or if you’re starting to head back into the office after years of working from home, then your workday makeup staples, like mascara, concealer, and foundation, probably need a refresh after lying dormant for so long. Another key purchase, especially for the winter, is a cream blush, as it will deliver much-needed pigment. There are so many fun, new trends and so many products to play with, there’s really no wrong move here (except not making a move at all!).

You can also restock your stash of shampoos, conditioners, and styling products — you know you’ll need them all sooner or later! — or add to your collection of hair accessories, from claws to scrunchies to silk pillowcases, Sephora has those too.

Best Sephora Fragrance Products
You really can’t have too many candles, fragrant hand soaps or perfumes; the only issue is the cost. If you splurge for a buzzy floral perfume and it doesn’t work with your body chemistry, that can be an expensive misstep that prevents most of us from trying new scents. Take it from us: Capitalize on this sale to try the perfume oils, rollers or minis that you think you may love before diving right in and buying the regular size. Not sure where to start? Give this perfume guide a read and find which perfume speaks to you. And if you’re anything like us, you’ve been wildly curious about what Tom Ford’s Fucking Fabulous candle actually smells like.

Best Gift Sets + Bundles
Keeping a stash of gift sets and bundles on hand is a smart idea for birthdays or holidays that tend to creep up on us. Gift sets and bundles also offer a range of different products, usually in smaller, low-commitment sizes, so you can try other best-sellers from your favorite brand but in a smart way that won’t break the bank. Another popular type of gift set combines a popular hair or skin care tool with a lineup of supporting products, like a heat protectant spray and hyaluronic acid serum, respectively. But whatever category strikes your fancy, there are plenty of gift sets and bundles to choose from.

What is the Sephora Beauty Insider Sale?
The Sephora Beauty Insider Sale, also known as the Holiday Savings Event, kicks off today for Beauty Insiders everywhere. You can shop the Sephora sale online and in-stores tonight until November 7.
There is a slight catch: To access the super steals, you must be a Sephora Beauty Insider. But the good news is that it is quick, simple, and free to join — and if you’re not a Beauty Insider, do not pass go and take a second to sign up right this very moment.
If you’re a first-time shopper or you just need a quick refresher, here’s how the Sephora Beauty Insider Sale works. There are different levels of discounts for the products on sale at Sephora.
- Rouge: Anyone who has spent $1,000 or more in a calendar year at Sephora qualifies as a Rouge member. Rouge members will be able to shop the sale first, plus they’ll receive the biggest discount at 20% off of their entire purchase for the duration of the sale, from October 28 to November 7.
- VIB: VIB members are Sephora shoppers who have spent at least $350 this past year. The sale opens to VIB members a little later, on November 1, and they will receive 15% off all orders.
- Insider: An Insider is someone who signs up for the Sephora loyalty program. These members will have access to the Sephora sale starting on November 3 and can nab products at 10% off.
But that’s not all! Sephora is giving all Beauty Insiders — no matter the tier — 30% off Sephora Collection products. That’s right, the entire line of beloved, not to mention top-rated, makeup and skincare are up for grabs at a steep discount. And don’t forget the line’s mountain of hair tools as well as makeup brushes, sponges, and other accessories. So if you still haven’t splurged on a holiday gift for mom or any woman on your list, or you’re looking to stock up on essentials, now’s your chance (and no one has to know you paid sale price for it). And if you’ve been sitting on a hair or makeup trend, take the plunge and buy the colorful eyeshadow palette, bold red lip, or hair product at a major discount, so it’s even less of a bummer if you don’t like it because you got it on sale.
You may think that such a mega sale won’t include the very top products at Sephora, but that is false! Even the most coveted brands that never go on sale will be marked down, including Dyson hair tools, NuFace, Rare Beauty, Charlotte Tilbury, and Kosas, just to name a few. In fact, out of all the brands Sephora offers, only three (three!) are excluded from the sale — The Ordinary, M.A.C. Cosmetics, and Viva Glam — but literally every other brand and product is fair game.
A sale this amazing sells out fast, so don’t sleep on it. And when in doubt, remember Sephora’s generous return policy: You’ll have 30 days from the date of purchase to return the product if — worst case scenario — you change your mind or it doesn’t suit you.
Do I Have To Be A Sephora Insider to Shop the Sale?
Yes, you need to be a Sephora Beauty Insider to access the Holiday Savings Event. It’s a totally easy rewards program for Sephora shoppers — you just sign up and start shopping.
Is the Sephora Beauty Insider Sale Worth Shopping?
Yes, the Sephora Beauty Insider slash Holiday Savings Event is the best sale at Sephora for the entire year. Lucky for us, the Beauty Insider Sale happens twice a year, but the Holiday Savings Event is our favorite because it’s a low-stakes way to get your hands on beauty presents like skin care gift sets, hair care gift sets, makeup gift sets, fragrance gift sets, and more.
