July is my birthday month. There is no better way to celebrate your birthday than with some great freebies and discounts from your favorite beauty retailers! Here are the ones I scored for 2015:
Sephora – Beauty Insiders get a pair of NARS Lip Pencils in Cruella and Rikugien. The deluxe samples aren’t that much smaller than the full size. VIP Beauty Insiders also get a NARS eyeliner. All you have to do is sign up before your birthday month. No purchase required.
Victoria’s Secret: Sign up for emails and get a special coupon for your birthday that entitles you to $10 off a $30 purchase. Get something in the beauty department or load up on cotton panties.
ULTA – ULTA changes the birthday gift every few months or so. This summer I got a deluxe sample of Urban Decay’s Perversion Mascara. You have to be an ULTAmate rewards member and you’ll get an email around your birthday that is good for 30 days. Another perk you’ll receive is 2 X points during your birthday month. I got a haircut, bought some hair products and makeup staples and ended up with $8 in rewards – and these are good on all brands and products.
The Body Shop – Members of the Love Your Body program get $10 on their birthday. A membership costs $10 per year, but you also get 10 percent off everyday purchases plus you accumulate points toward reward certificates.
Godiva – This isn’t a beauty product but it is chocolate! Join the rewards program to get a free piece of chocolate each month, rewards for purchases and other exclusive offers. For my birthday I got a $10 ceritficate that I used toward the Birthday Truffle Flight $16-$10= $6.
