It’s the most wonderful time of the year. 

Sephora’s Beauty Insider Appreciation Event means everything at Sephora and on is on sale to Beauty Insiders. Here’s how this sale works: the brand offers one code for each loyalty shopping tier: 20 percent off for VIB Rouge members, 15 percent off for VIB members and 10% for Beauty Insiders. Rouge members get full access early — starting Friday, Aug. 24 — and the sale opens up to VIB and Beauty Insiders on Thursday, Aug. 30.

Here are some my skin and hair care picks for the sale. Makeup is SO specific to each person so I can’t possibly recommend those.

The sweet deals don’t stop there. Sephora recently overhauled its Beauty Insider program to include more perks for VIB and Rouge members including more points (1.25 points per dollar for VIB and 1.5 per dollar for Rouge members as opposed to 1 point per dollar which Beauty Insiders will continue to receive); a choice between a birthday gift or 250 bonus points and five times more rewards including a $100 reward for Rouge and a full-size product for VIB and Rouge. It’s always worth it to sign up to be a Beauty Insider. Sign up at
