Calling all beauty addicts! If you want to score some free cosmetics and skincare products in the new year, you’re in luck because Sephora has announced what it will include in its free sample sets that all Beauty Insiders (members of their rewards program) will receive for their birthday this year. If you’re not yet a Beauty Insider, it’s free to join through the store’s website.

Customers can claim their free birthday bonus in store or online anytime during their birthday month. Members can choose from one of three gift sets:

  • Glam Glow: This set is for the skincare enthusiast and includes a cleansing mud mask and an illuminating moisturizer.
  • Bite Beauty: For the perfect pout, this lip kit includes a mini lipstick, matte lip crayon and sample-size lip moisturizer.
  • Bumble and Bumble hair care set: If it’s shiny and beautiful tresses you’re after, you’ll want to go with this gift of 1-ounce samples of invisible oil shampoo and conditioner. Keep in mind this one is available online only.

If you pick up the other two gifts in store, no purchase is necessary. However, to get them online, you must make a purchase.


As a Beauty Insider, you also get other benefits beyond a birthday freebie. Every Tuesday and Thursday, new rewards debut as part of the Rewards Bazaar. When you make purchases as a Beauty Insider, you earn points that can be redeemed for these rewards. You also have access to the Beauty Insider Community, where you can swap tips and tricks and ask questions of other cosmetics aficionados.

Lastly, you can enroll in free beauty classes that take place inside Sephora stores. Instructors guide you through topics such as age-defying skincare, how to properly pull of false eyelashes, makeup tips for teens, brow shaping and contouring and highlighting.

Don’t forget to claim your free gift when your birthday rolls around this year!
