Hidden secrets and tips, from a current Sephora employee!

What Every Sephora Employee Wants you to Know

I have currently worked for Sephora, for roughly a year, now. And I have loved everyday working there. But there are some secrets and tips I would like to share with you.



Many customers come in months after their birthday, saying I forgot my birthday gift, not realizing that they can still receive their gift. The entire month of your birthday, you can pick up your birthday gift. You DO NOT have to wait until your actually birthday. Once your birthday month hits, you have the remainder of the year to receive your gift. So do not worry, if your forget to receive your free birthday gift. Save that special day, for the fun stuff!



Many customers come into Sephora, believing they can only receive foundation samples. But you can receive so much more. You can ask for samples of perfume, face cream, hair products, etc. As long as the product you are wanting a sample off is a liquid, cream, or lotion texture you can receive a sample. Please do not become greedy either, technically we are only able to give out 3 samples to one customer. But if you are nice and not demanding, we may give you an extra sample or two.



Please do not ask if there are any coupons. Rarely does Sephora have coupons. Maybe 2 times out of the year, depending on your beauty insider status, will coupons be sent out. So asking at the register, does not mean a coupon will magically appear. So be sure, if you are not one, to become a beauty insider member.



Yes, I know we ask you every time you check out, but you should really sign up to become a rewards member. Perks of being a beauty insider member, include, gifts, discounts, free samples, free birthday gift. Ranks go from beauty insider, VIB, and Rouge. And depending on your beauty insider status, more perks will come too. And what many customers do not know, is that their beauty insider rewards account, keeps track of your purchases. So when you forget your lipstick or foundation shade, we will have that in our system. Or making a return, and do not have the receipt, we can find that for you too. So sign up in store or online!

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.
