My First Sephora Haul (They Now Ship To The UK)

I have a confession. Ever since I visited Sephora on holiday years ago I've been obsessed with their website, so much so that I would be visiting it at least 3 times a week. Putting my imaginary products in my virtual basket, picking out my non-existent free samples... (I know I'm pretty sad).

 My head practically exploded when I saw on Twitter that they now ship to the UK!

Needless to say I started shopping, unfortunately there are some restrictions, no nail polish (sob) Hourglass products, Nars products or aerosols. So I did have to made some amendments, though I still managed to spend a tonne, plus I've just made another order, when will I learn haha. Anywho here's what I picked up this time:

Sephora Haul
Clinique All About Shadow Natural Territory 2 Palette
Beauty Blender Solid Sponge Cleanser
Sephora Favourites Skin Cleanse Vol 2
Anastasia Beverly Hills Go Brow Kit
Clinique All About Shadow Natural Territory 2 Palette
Clinique Cheek Pop in Peach Pop 

Inside the Skin Cleanse Vol 2 Set:
Sephora Favourites Skin Cleanse Vol 2
Dr. Brand Pores No More Pore Refiner
Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment
First Aid Beauty Red Clay Deep Cleanser
Boscia Luminizing Black Mask
Peter Thomas Roth FirmX Peeling Gel
Dr. Jart Black Label Detox BB Beauty Balm
 Glamgo Supermud Clearing Treatment
Ole Henriksen Ultimate Lift Eye Gel
Murad Oil-Control Mattifier SPF 15 PA++ 

This set has so many things I can't wait to try, especially the Kate Somerville product. I did have the Goats Milk Moisturiser in my basket originally but it was one of the exempt products, so I will have to pick it up in May.

The Clinique purchases were a bit of an impulse, but they did turn out a bit cheaper than over here. As did the Beauty Blender Cleanser which I had had my eye on for a while. I plan on doing a separate post on the Clinique goodies, so look out for those coming soon.

Now for the vital statistics, if you make an order worth £75 your shipping is a flat £10 rate, it may be more if your order is less. You also have to pay tax, this is what my bill looked like:
Products: £85.52
Shipping: £10
Tax: £19.11
Total: £114.43

Shipping took just under a week, which is fab and I haven't had to pay any customs. Everyones experiences will be different but I'm very happy with my order which I think is pretty obvious considering I've made another one (oops).

You get to pick three free samples with every order, which I think is an amazing deal! Plus they also have a beauty point system where you get one point for every $ you spend and you can trade them for samples, so here are what I picked:

Sephora Samples
GlamGlow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment 100 Point Sample
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo Sample
Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Face Polish Sample
Phyto Phytobaume Volume Express Conditioner Sample

There we have it, my fist official (shipped) Sephora haul, never did I actually think this would happen, I'm so pleased! Let me know if you would like to see the other products I've ordered, I may have gone a bit crazy, I blame the years of pent up cyberstalking haha. Though I think I will have to stop the spending, as my holiday is in 10 weeks and I need to start saving! Easier said then done, am I right?

Have you ordered from Sephora yet? What's on your wishlist?

  8. WELCOME TO THE JOYS OF SEPHORA....and watch your bank account get depleted ;)
    Ouu, I see some pretty nifty stuff in here! I have the same Clinique blush and I ABSOLUTELY love the embossing. I'm pretty sure I bought it just for the embossing, but oh well. Exfolikate is actually one of my favourite facial exfoliators! But, in order for it to work, you really gotta lay it on though.
