IYKYK! It’s that time of the year again where Sephora hosts a sale event. These savings are a pretty big deal! Whether its stocking up on your favourites or wanting to try out some products you’ve been wanting to try, NOW IS THE TIME! Don’t wait too long cause your product might get sold out by the time you decide.
