Sephora Favorites Give Me More Lip & Soko to Tokyo

One of my favourite things to do when I visit America is go to the nearest Sephora store and shop my heart out.  Why oh why do we not have Sephora in the UK?  I know we can order online for delivery to the UK, but up till now I have avoided placing an order, due to the crappy exchange rate and also the added pain of customs and delivery charges.  I was finally tempted to place an order when they recently came out with some great value Sephora Favorites box sets.

I decided to order Sephora Favorites Give Me More Lip & Soko to Tokyo.  I chose these two sets as they were great value and there were lots of products that I wanted to try out in each set.  The total cost including customs charges and delivery was £111.41 (products - £54.31 & £31.94/customs charge - £19.16/delivery - £6).

Sephora Favorites Soko to Tokyo
In the end it cost me £111 for approx. £300 worth of high end products which was well worth it.  Delivery only took 3 - 4 days which is great and I love the fact that the customs charges are already taken care of when you order, so there are no nasty surprises before you get your delivery.  The only disappointment with ordering online with Sephora is that you cannot use your points to get any of the rewards and you can't get the 3 samples that are normally offered with orders.  In addition, you cannot take advantage of the codes for free deluxe samples with your orders and I could not get my free birthday gift for being a Beauty Insider VIB.  I wish that Sephora would make all those things available to those of us in the UK when we place an order. 

That being said, I am really happy with the boxes that I ordered and I can't wait to try out all the products.  Roll on next year when I have a holiday to America planned, so I can visit a Sephora store once again.

I bought these products with my own money
