Shop Story

Did you know you can get a free birthday gift from Sephora every year? The retailer offers this bonus to members of its Beauty Insider loyalty program, which is free to join. For 2020, Sephora has unveiled its new birthday offerings: mini sets from Milk Makeup, Sol de Janeiro and Briogeo.

 

“Sephora’s birthday gifts are something our clients look forward to every year. They are a great way to explore products, many of which are exclusive to us,” said Allegra Stanley, Vice President, General Manager of Loyalty for Sephora.

 

If you’re new to the Beauty Insider program, this is how it works. You connect all your Sephora purchases with your account whether you’re shopping online or in-store, and it converts your spending into points. You also input your birthday into your profile, and during your birthday month, you can come and choose one of the featured mini sets for free! There’s no purchase necessary if you’re picking up in-store, but you can also conveniently add your gift to your cart when purchasing online. 

 

Lovers of cruelty-free makeup will be happy to hear that the Milk Makeup mini set includes the brand’s best-selling Kush High Volume Mascara, the Lip + Cheek in Werk and the Hydro Grip Primer

 

The birthday gift options have also expanded to include hair and body care for the first time this year with mini sets from Sol de Janeiro and Briogeo. For skincare, the set from Brazilian beauty brand Sol de Janeiro features their Brazilian Bum Bum Cream and the Coco Cabana Cream. Tackling hair care, the Briogeo option includes Scalp Revival Charcoal & Coconut Oil Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo and the Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask.

 

If you’re on a higher level of the loyalty program as a VIB or Rouge member, you can choose an additional gift available exclusively via the online “Birthday Boutique.” These rotate during the year so best to check these closer to your birthday month. 2020 starts with the Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne.

Milk Makeup Kush High Volume Mascara

Price:$24.00
What Reviewers Are Saying:

“First of all, the packaging feels luxurious! It’s heavy and feels very well made. Secondly, the formula is great. It lengthened my lashes and added amazing volume right away with two coats.”

Milk Makeup Lip + Cheek in Werk

Price:$28.00
What Reviewers Are Saying:

“This product renewed my belief I could actually use blush on my skin tone. Most blushes I have tried immediately disappear. Pigment does not show well on my skin for some reason, but this is beautiful. It leaves a nice, natural glow that I love as I do not wear a lot of makeup and prefer more of a natural look.”

Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Primer

Price:$30.00
What Reviewers Are Saying:

“I have never really been a primer person. Every one I try breaks me out and doesn’t seem to do anything. This looks and feels great. When it first goes on, it does feel very sticky, but I think that’s the ‘grip’ part, which really does hold your makeup on. My favorite part though is that it doesn’t sting my face. Somehow this made my skin feel calm.”

Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream

Price:$45.00
What Reviewers Are Saying:

“Usually I am skeptical about claims made regarding cellulite reduction, but I am blown away by this cream. It does everything it promised and more, and I've only been using it for two weeks! I keep staring at my legs wondering what happened. This cream has given me hope for the bikini season looming ahead.”

Sol de Janeiro Coco Cabana Cream

Price:$45.00
What Reviewers Are Saying:

“I am in love with the new scent, which has much more of a coconut smell and praline smell. The consistency also seems like more of a cream than an oil, but it feels the same on my skin, which is super moisturizing.”

Briogeo Scalp Revival Charcoal & Coconut Oil Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo

Price:$42.00
What Reviewers Are Saying:

“his is an amazing product especially for someone that has scalp issues. I have dermatitis on my scalp, and this has helped so much. I lather it in my scalp, and it is cooling and exfoliates well. I only use a small amount, and it has lasted several months with so much left in it. It’s a good value for its size.”

Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask

Price:$36.00
What Reviewers Are Saying:

“I just bleached my hair and as a result, my hair became horribly dry! This mask was a life saver. I have thick, coarse hair, and I wanted a deep condition so I followed Brigeo's instructions and wrapped my hair under a plastic cap and kept it for 20 minutes under my hair dryer. I highly recommend this product to anyone who needs moisture back in their hair.”

Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne

Price:$70.00
What Reviewers Are Saying:

“I get compliments wherever I go with this scent. It’s a wonderful alternative if you’re looking for something different without going too woodsy or spicy. I find it fresh and crisp without having soapy undertones. It’s simply beautiful.”
