The sale that all beauty junkies have been waiting for is here: from 4 to 8 September 2019, Sephora is holding its Beauty Pass Sale that offers a 20% discount storewide on everything!
All you need to do to enjoy this discount is flash your Gold or Black Beauty Pass or virtual mobile app pass at the cashier counter in stores, or log in to the Sephora website or mobile app to do your beauty haul. For those of us who have indulged ourselves enough to become Gold Members, here’s even more good news – you get to shop one day earlier than the rest, starting from 4 September (while others start on 5 September)!
While most of us probably wish we would cart out everything in stores, our limited funds require us to exercise some self-restraint. If you are not sure what’s worth buying, you’re in the right article! Read on to see which products give you the biggest cash discount, and which we highly recommend you grab before it’s too late.
Deals most worth your money
We know, it’s difficult to justify buying a skincare product that costs more than SGD100 when you could buy another at one-tenth the price. You now have a good reason to do so – after all, this is one of the best deals you can get on Sephora’s products, so if not now then when?
These are the top five products that give you the biggest cash discount in this Beauty Pass Sale:

Original price: SGD709
You save: SGD141.80
If you have ever wanted to get your hands on this wrinkle-reducing and acne-fighting LED device but couldn’t bear the thought of forking out a whopping SGD709 for it, you’ll be happy to know that you now can get a discount of over SGD140!
This easy-to-use, hands-free device promises a reduction of acne within days, clearing of more serious acne and fading lines in two weeks, and even a youthful complexion after ten weeks of usage. The five-star ratings and glowing reviews from satisfied customers are all the more reason you should invest in this while you can!

Best hacks to beat the sale
If this is your first time taking part in Sephora’s Beauty Pass Sale, you are going to be overwhelmed by the frantic shopping everywhere, be it in stores or online. Chances are, even if you have done your research and decided on what to buy, you won’t be able to snag the best-sellers even if you are a Gold member.
That’s why we are here to give you some of the best hacks you can use to make sure that you get to buy everything you want at 20% off!
Put everything you want on your wishlist first
When it comes to popular sales, time is of the essence, and you do not want to waste a single minute trying to add 100 products into your shopping cart.
Our advice is to put everything your heart desires into your wishlist now – yes, now. When the clock strikes twelve, all it takes is a few clicks to check everything out, and then you can revel in the excitement of waiting for your delivery while other customers see their favourite items go out of stock.
Combine purchases with your friends to get free Premium delivery
We are not doubting your ability to rack up purchases in this sale, but for those of us who have more self-control and only want to buy one or two items because they are going cheap, it may be difficult to hit the minimum amount required for free delivery.
Here’s where you need to take on the role of an enabler and persuade your friends to indulge in this sale with you. Of course, if your friends are already planning to buy during this sale, that’s even better! For easy reference, this is the total amount you need to hit to enjoy free delivery:
- Standard: SGD40 and above
- Standard+: SGD65 and above
- Premium: SGD110 and above
Standard and Standard+ have delivery time frames of between three to five business days, while Premium takes only one business day, meaning that you will be able to get your loots the next day!
Make friends with Gold members if you aren’t already one
As mentioned earlier, Gold members get a headstart in the sale (4 September 2019) while Black members have to wait for one more day before they can check out their purchases. There is a high chance that most of the popular products have already been snapped up by then, so you are not left with much to pick from when it is finally your turn.
Unfortunately, attaining Gold status is a remarkable feat that not all of us can achieve – FYI, that’s a minimum spend of SGD1,500 in Sephora annually.
Instead of piling more items into your shopping cart to attain Gold membership, why not find a friend who is already a Gold member? Not only do both of you get to cart out everything a day before the rest of the crowd, but you can also combine your purchases to hit the minimum needed for Premium delivery – we can’t find a reason not to do so!
