It’s been a while since Sephora Philippines (Sephora PH) officially launched in our country. Sephora is well-known in the United States as a beauty-retail shop that offers a huge range of products like skincare, makeup, fragrance, body and hair care. So it was really exciting when Sephora expanded its doors and is finally able to send us products in the Philippines. They mostly offer high-end products that we can’t purchase locally.
It was until recently that I tried to purchase from them though. Luckily, I was able to purchase during their “2x points” promotion that I instantly became a Black Member just by purchasing two items. Yay!
Navigating through Sephora PH’s website was very easy. You just choose a category, pick a product you like and add it to your Bag or Wishlist. I usually do my online window shopping and add things on my wishlist. FYI, it’s full of products I love but my wallet won’t allow me to place them all in my Bag. :'(
When you sign up, you’ll automatically be a Sephora White Member but after garnering a total of 250 points, you’ll become a Sephora Black Member which entitles you to exclusive rewards and privileges like 10% discount vouchers, birthday offers and 2x points, exclusive invites to Sephora private sale, events, workshops and updates on offers and other promotions.
Sephora PH Experience
I have purchased from Sephora PH twice now. Both orders were completed on a Friday(I don’t know why I mostly purchase things on a Friday), I received a tracking number within 24 hours and receive the items on Monday the following week! What I love about Sephora is their tracking is very informative as to where your package is.
Sephora PH doesn’t have a physical store available locally yet. I was really amazed to receive the items as early as possible since the products are shipped from Singapore. Also, they deliver straight to your doorstep so you don’t have to worry about taxes and customs fee. They claim to deliver your items 5-10 business days but I got mine within 2 business days! I also love the packaging where the items came in. It was very sturdy and full of bubble wrap to ensure the items are safe.
Shipping fee is P330 but purchased items with a total of P1,300 and above will entitle you to free shipping which is not difficult to get because most of the items are priced P1,000+ each. Hahaha. Also, payments can be made through credit card and PayPal; DragonPay for those who want to make over-the-counter payments.
The only thing that frustrates me is that their products sell out immediately! It would be too late for me to purchase some items when I finally have enough money since it’s already sold out. Hope they stock up on “best sellers” more.
Sephora PH Verdict
If you haven’t tried Sephora PH yet, then you should! Online shopping with them is very easy and you get your orders as soon as possible(Hooray for the impatient ones). They also offer many authentic high-end products and I love how they are adding more brands to offer as time goes by.
