Shopping at Sephora Tips

Not all ecommerce shopping networks, even with their wide variety of products to choose from, have everything you're looking for. There's still a need to look for specific products through specialty shops. For makeup, skincare and other related beauty essentials, there are shops like Sephora.

Benefits of Shopping at Sephora

Here are some of the reasons why this online shopping network stands out and tips to make the most out of your purchase.

Wide Selection of Products

Shopping at Sephora Tips

While there are possibly numerous similar shops, including brands with their own site online products, Sephora offers a wider selection that's not exclusive or limited to a specific brand name alone. Aside from well known brands, rising names are also on display. Some are not even available on brick and mortal shops. Hence, it will definitely help to browse through similar product types in order to compare prices, ingredients and user reviews if you are willing to try something different from your usual brand. 

Global Sites

There are several international sites which cater to specific regions around the world so you won't be paying a lot for international shipping. These include the U.S.A., Canada and Mexico for North America; Brazil for South America; Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Spain, Sweden and Turkey for Europe; China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and the Middle East for Asia; Australia and New Zealand.

You won't be expecting a next day delivery like how some local ecommerce shops but it's still faster than international orders from sites like Amazon or eBay. 

Rewards and Discounts

The Beauty Pass is a free membership rewards program which lets you earn points for every money spent when purchasing products within the site. You can also accumulate points through other options such as publishing reviews of confirmed purchases, completing your profile, downloading the app and the double points when shopping on your birth month or special events. The more points earned, the higher the membership level (White, Black, and Gold) with more perks. 

There are also free samples for every purchase. Sale and discounts for various occasions are also available throughout the year.  

This one below is possibly the best haul I've experienced so far. Only the Caolion duo was purchased. The rest are either freebies or from exchanged rewards. So while the freebies are but samples, it's a good way to try an item which you may eventually like and purchase in full size.

Order Tracking and Delivery

Aside from updates sent via email, you can track orders real time through their trusted couriers. Delivery is via door-to-door on a secure packaging. The regional sites definitely help make transactions faster, even if items are shipped from overseas because items are sent from the closest global location. 

Secure packaging ⬆️ with the usual bubble wrap. Everything I got here were well protected except for one item from this group below ⬇️. 


Price-wise, items are sold similar to the manufacturer's pricing (at least for the brands I was able to check before buying). It won't hurt to compare prices with other retailer shops first just to make sure. 


And since some of the items I have tried are featured in photos on this post, here are accompanying reviews specific for each product.
