Christmas: it is hands-down our favourite time of the year, for so many reasons! Whether it is the hearty Christmas food, or magical Christmas lights, or the limited edition festive beauty gift sets – Christmas is really all sorts of wonderful.
One of the biggest reasons why we love Christmas so much has to be the license we have to shop for hours at Sephora, for that perfect gift for our pals. (As if we needed any excuse to be in Sephora, really!)
Sephora’s signs have already gone sparkly red in anticipation of Christmas – that’s your cue to pop on over! Whether you’re getting something for your entire squad, or that one item for your treasured BFF, these will surely make them feel beautiful and pampered!
