Shocker Saturday! Sephora is selling Expired products on SALE

I wanted to start a mini-series on my blog, and I gave the name as Shocker Saturday. I would like to share beauty related posts that actually shocked me in recent times. By now, you might understand what is new with Sephora. They have sales running every now and then. They also add a lot of the Sephora Collection products to the sale. I never knew that Sephora is selling expired products.

This week, I happened to go to Sephora to refill my favorite products also, I wanted to try the Fenty foundation. The Fenty foundation didn’t suit my dry skin so, gave up buying it, but I loved the shade range. The bad thing is that I saw their SALE section which had a good number of products at almost half price. I wanted to get their Rouge Balm SPF 20 as I love the tint it gives to my pigmented lips.  I love their lipsticks – check my latest post on that – Sephora Rouge Cream Lipstick Review

I almost grabbed 3 of them and I happened to check the expiry dates. I arranged them in this way to picture them but IRL they were all placed nicely. So, anyway, the gist is I have asked the SA to if they knew that they were expired. She said, “Yeah, probably. that’s why they are on sale. But, I know they shouldn’t be.” The SA was a pretty nice girl.

Anyway, I didn’t buy the products although they were priced so low. Lesson learned! 

For now, I think we all need to check the expiry dates before buying products from Sephora.
