Sephora! The wonderful world where you can happily get lost for hours staring at all the beautiful cosmetics, skincare and fragrances. But it can do some serious damage to your wallet. If you’re addicted to the lovely, intoxicating environment of Sephora then you need these money saving hacks to help you get the goods for less.

1 Sephora’s Return Policy Has Your Back

eyebrow, face, hair, nose, cheek,You never have to have buyer’s regret when you shop at Sephora. How many times have you bought a cosmetic, got home, hated it and then felt furiously frustrated because you’re saddled with something that doesn’t work for you? That doesn’t happen at Sephora. If you don’t love it then you can take it back. Their return policy means you’ll never throw money away on a product you don’t love.

2 Rack up Beauty Insider Points

color, hair, face, purple, pink,Beauty insider points are those wonderful little numbers you rack up every time you make a purchase. You can cash them out at 100 for a deluxe sample or at 500 for a gift set. Whether you like the quick gifts or save for the 500 point prizes, this’s a delightful reward system. You get more quality skincare and makeup!. The point system is easy to understand; each dollar you spend equals one point.

3 Take Advantage of Double Points

hair, eyebrow, face, hairstyle, nose,There’re times when Sephora offers double or even triple points. They recently offered double points on skincare and I was able to rack up double points on my eye cream, cleanser and a facial mask which were items I needed anyways. Taking advantage of double or triple point times can reward you with more points quicker. It’s true that you have to spend money to get points but why not get rewarded for your Sephora loyalty? You get more for your money which is always a good thing.

4 Don’t Forget Your Birthday Gift

All you have to do is enroll and you can stop in and pick up a birthday gift when it’s close to your big day. This year the choices are a skincare set by Fresh or a mini Mark Jacobs makeup set. Since I love Fresh skincare, I can’t wait to take advantage of this awesome perk!
