A brand new month means a slew of fresh rewards and deals for members of Sephora's Beauty Insider loyalty program. The retailer updates its exclusive member perks monthly and there's always something for Insiders to look forward to. Sephora’s April 2019 deals and rewards are now available for the taking.
In case you need a refresher about how the program works or are considering joining, here's all of the critical intel. It's free to join, and as a Beauty Insider, you earn redeemable points for every dollar you spend at Sephora. Once you spend $350 in a calendar year, you're upgraded to VIB status. When you spend $1,000 or more in a year, you graduate to VIB Rouge status. The more you spend, the higher your membership level. The higher your membership level, the better your rewards and benefits.
However, if you have yet to attain VIB or VIB Rouge status, do not fret. Sephora has various deals and free gifts available at every membership level, including the base Insider status.
The Beauty Offers are no joke. Those include premium freebies, like makeup bags or trial-sized products from prestige brands, that you score with a specific purchase and a promo code.
The Sephora Rewards Bazaar is generally pretty epic and always packed with unique items and experiences. Those can start as low as 250 points and can go as high as 50,000 points. These items are not for sale. Rather, Beauty Insiders obtain them by cashing out the aforementioned points that are accrued with each dollar spent at Sephora. The Bazaar boasts everything from makeup classes to trips to limited edition product sets.
Here are nine options to consider this month, from free hero products to tiny bags.
1. Swivel Compact Mirror
For 250 points, you can grab this utilitarian yet cute black swivel mirror. It's small, lightweight, and can be tucked into any handbag or clutch. It's also stamped with "Sephora Beauty Insider," effectively announcing your status. You can never have too many portable mirrors for touchups.
2. First Aid Beauty Skin So Fab Set
An amazing thing about the Sephora Rewards Bazaar is that it allows you to sample brands you may not have tried before. You may find your new "can't live without" product by testing the trial sizes. You can cash in 500 points for First Aid Beauty's Skin So Fab Set, which features face cleanser, cream, oil, and radiance-boosting pads.
3. Beauty Insider Sweepstakes — NYC Trip
If you can bear to part with only 25 of your program points, then enter into this killer sweepstakes. Sephora is giving away a trip for two to NYC. Perks include a Caudalie spa experience for two, along with two full-face makeovers with a Sephora Beauty Director and $500 each to spend on a personal shopping experience with a Beauty Director at Sephora. All that? For just 25 points with no purchase necessary? You would be remiss not to enter. You are allowed one entry per day through April 9.
4. Free Kat Von D Makeup Bag
Shoppers will receive a free, black patent leather Kat Von D makeup bag with the purchase of the brand's Saint or Sinner perfumes. If you've been eyeing either fragrance, now is the time to scoop one up since this freebie is too cool to snooze on. The KVDCHIC code is required in order to score this online-only deal.
