I didn’t start shopping at Sephora until a few years ago, but I already have a full blown list of Sephora beauty favorites!
I’m finding as I get older, I am more willing to buy fewer, high quality products that might be a little more expensive than a million drug store priced products that only work fairly well, and Sephora is just the spot for that. The staff is incredibly helpful at pointing my confused self in the right direction, and their return policy makes it so easy to try new things worry free.
I’ll be honest that I typically don’t buy things outside of their sales. Many of these items rarely go on sale, so I use their VIB Sale as an opportunity to stock up on my holy grail favorites that I always reach for. However, I’ll warn you that I’ve fallen in love with a few things that I will always replace them when empty, even at full price. You get what you pay for, right?
The other great thing about Sephora is that most of the products are offered in smaller travel/sample sizes. I’ve found some of my most favorite products this way, because even with that great return policy, my track record of actually returning is not great. There’s less pressure with the smaller sizes, they feel like a fun treat, and it’s always nice to have a smaller size when traveling.
And don’t sleep on the samples! When you sign up for the Sephora reward program, you earn points that work for so many kinds of samples. I’ve found some of my most favorite things this way!
