My First Sephora Philippines Shopping Experience

Don’t you just love all these online beauty retailers opening their doors one by one to the Philippines? I mean, I hardly even go to a brick and mortar store to buy my beauty essentials. I used to shop at Beauty MNL a lot. And when Beautylish started shipping to the Philippines, I quickly called a friend to help me fill the cart so we can reach the minimum for free shipping. Haha!

Now that there’s Sephora Philippines, this brings us Filipinas closer to foreign brands that we used to just ogle over when we hear about it from our favorite Western Youtube stars.

Without further ado, let me share with you what’s inside my first Sephora PH package.

Back story, I was cleaning my brushes 2 weekends ago and I realized I was having a particularly hard time removing all the gunk in my kabuki foundation brush. I don’t know if I was using more products lately or I was just being impatient/lazy but it was taking me longer than usual to clean all my brushes.

So I thought of checking out Sephora Philippines with the sole intention of buying Sigma’s Brush Cleaning Glove. I picked the cheapest one since I don’t really need the fancier, more expensive version.

Sigma Spa Express Brush Cleaning Glove – Php1,206.00
And since the minimum amount to get free shipping was Php1,300.00, I decided to pick up this Becca x Jaclyn Hill Highlighter in Champagne Pop.

Becca x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Champagne Pop – Php1,943.00
I was holding off this purchase for quite some time now. In fact I was almost about to pick this up when I was in Lotte Duty Free in Korea last month. Haha! But anyways, I’m glad I had the ‘need’ to add this to my shopping cart. Lol.

Since it was my first time to shop at Sephora Philippines, I was entitled to get this FREE Sephora White Card pouch.

I also received a discount coupon for Php175.00 less in my next order as my White Card gift so long as my next purchase is above Php2,100.00. I already have something in mind to purchase next month. Hehe. πŸ™‚

I love that my first Sephora PH shopping experience was such a breeze. I paid my order last July 13 (Wed) and my package arrived last July 16 (Sat)–Pretty fast since the items are coming from Sephora Singapore. Also, you’ll get an email notification as soon as the package has arrived your shipping address. πŸ™‚

Hopefully Sephora will also start opening physical stores in the Philippines and bring in more brands soon. xx

    I used a “sandok ng kanin” when cleaning my brushes, it effectively take away the dirt and it retails for only 10 pesos πŸ˜€
