Sephora Family and Friends 2011
SimoneOctober 19, 2011
For those of you that aren’t familiar with Sephora, it’s a chain of cosmetics stores founded in France in 1970 and acquired by Paris based conglomerate LVMH (Louis Vuitton and Moet Hennessy) in 1977. The Sephora chain includes more than 750 stores in 17 countries. It carries over 250 brands, including Sephora’s own private label.
The store offers cosmetic and beauty items that include makeup, skin care, fragrance, bath and body, hair products, and hair and make-up tools. Sephora carries beauty brands such as Make Up Forever, NARS, Carol’s Daughter, Urban Decay, Gucci, Clinique, Juicy Couture etc…
Every year right before the kick off of the Holiday Season (mid October- early November), it offers a Family and Friends discount to its customers. The discount is 20 % off your total order via online or at a freestanding store. This is a big deal for beauty fanatics because it gives you the opportunity to purchase products at a lesser price and stock up on items that you use year round. You were able to place multiple orders during this time period and still receive the discount!
This year, Sephora decided to switch things up and offer a ONE TIME use code. This applies to both online and in store purchases. This comes as a shock to a lot of people who were used to being able to shop for their favorite products at a discounted price for three plus weeks straight. If you are planning and in store purchase make sure you have proper ID and your BI (beauty insider) card. Without them you will NOT get the discount.
Visit www.sephora.com/friends as official details should be released very soon. Since things have changed a bit for 2011, I personally won’t be purchasing too many things. I think I’ll stick to the top three things on my “must have” list.
Good Luck and Happy Shopping.
