Call me greedy, but samples never really make my heart somersault. They usually feel like an after-thought giveaway, where a company pours a couple of drops of perfume or setting spray into a Barbie-sized bottle and gives it to you as an act of goodwill. But not all samples are created equal, and sometimes a store surprises you with a gift that won't make you want to trow it into the junk drawer version of your beauty bag. Enter Sephora's Beauty Insider birthday sets, and the fact that the beauty store really stepped it up for 2018.
One of the perks of getting one year older is all the love you get showered with on that day. And Sephora really wants you to feel all the confetti-and-sparkler vibes on your birthday. If you're a Beauty Insider, you're able to pick up a set without any purchase at the store during the month of your birthday, or with a purchase online. But not wanting to limit you to just one batch of products (on size does not fit all, after all), you can choose between three different sets: one that is makeup focused, one is hair themed, and one that is skin care oriented. Depending on which category appeals the most to you, you can have your pick. To make an informed decision, checkout the breakdown below.
