Focus On Price Per Ounce

Sometimes bigger truly is better.

When looking at different sizes of the same product, focus on the price per ounce because sometimes with the bigger size you actually get more for less.

Buy The Value Sets

The value sets usually feature products from the same but sometimes it'll be a mix of different brands too. By getting the products bundled you could save up to 70%.

With Sephora Canada, you can just take the item in for a price readjustment within the next two weeks.

Get Free Shipping

Shipping costs are often a dreaded site when you're online shopping.
