Sephora Just Kicked Off an Insider Sale—Here's What to Buy and When

Updated 10/31/18

Sephora sales are few and far between. Sure, there's the Weekly Wow, which is a (yep, you guessed it) weekly sale in which a few selected items are discounted up to 50% off for seven days only. This sale offers up some great deals on well-loved products. However, there are only a few at a time, and they're rarely new releases. That leaves us paying full price for the vast majority of the products we purchase, and as any beauty lover knows, that can get incredibly expensive. You head to Sephora's website to purchase a new mascara and the next thing you know you have a foundation, an eye palette, brushes, and a bronzer in your cart.

That's why we're so excited about the new Insider sale, which starts today for Rouge members, and later this week for Beauty Insiders and VIB members. It's a sitewide sale, which means we'll be able to purchase all of the products that have been patiently waiting in our carts. That is, without blowing our entire paycheck. Everything, across all skincare, haircare, and makeup categories, will be discounted. Keep scrolling to see all the scintillating details, plus see a few of the products we plan on purchasing.

Here are the deets. If you're a Rouge member, which is the highest level, the sale goes from October 26 through October 29, and a full 20% will be taken off of your purchase if you use the code ROUGEBONUS. While 20% might not sound like a lot, it's definitely worth taking advantage of, especially if you have a lot of product to purchase or you've had your eye on a brand-new (read: expensive) product. This discount also goes a long way when you consider that many brands have already started releasing limited-edition holiday collections.

If you're a VIB member, shop your favorite products from November 2 through the 5th. Everything will similarly be 20% off if you apply a code at checkout. The code, according to the beauty news Instagram account @trendmood1, is VIBBONUS.

Finally, there's the Beauty Insider weekend, which is November 16th through the 19th (this is also according to Trendmood). During this time, shoppers who use the code BIBONUS will receive 15% off of their purchase. There you have it, those are the dates, codes, and discounts you need to know. Why not start your holiday shopping early?

Supersonic Hair Dryer Black/Nickel
Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer $399
Shop

A 20% discount on something as high-end and expensive as the Dyson hair dryer is significant. It's also a good excuse to finally give in and buy it, because (spoiler alert) our editors say it's worth it. Whether it's a gift for someone else or yourself, go for it.

Herbivore Jade Roller $30
Shop

One of my favorite beauty tips is to store a jade roller in the fridge, so it becomes cool to the touch, thereby exacerbating its de-puffing powers. It works like a charm when you wake up with puffy skin after a head cold, too little sleep, or too much alcohol (ahem). 

Next, check out the Sephora brightening serum that 120,000 people swear by for fresh, radiant skin.
