Sephora’s 2020 Birthday Gifts Are Better Than Ever Before

#DMTBeautySpot #beauty

The Champagne flutes have been clinked, the numerous vision-related puns made, and the post-NYE Gatorade dutifully chugged. Thankfully for our serotonin levels come January 2nd, the new year doesn't just bring sparkly dresses and good vibes galore: If you're a Sephora Beauty Insider, it also means a new year of complimentary birthday gifts — and the store has seriously stepped it up for 2020.

This year, you've got three luxe options to choose from, in addition to a fourth rotating option that's exclusive to VIB and Rouge members. (More on that later.) "Sephora's birthday gifts are something our clients look forward to every year," says Allegra Stanley, Vice President, General Manager of Loyalty for Sephora, via press release. "As our clients continue to show interest in different categories like clean beauty and hair care, we're pleased to be able to deliver differentiated options through our birthday gift offerings, providing clients more choice than ever before."

Now, onto the good stuff: Whereas past birthday gifts skewed towards makeup and skin care, 2020's mini sets include products for hair and body as well, a first for the retailer. Ahead, a closer look at what you can expect to snag during your birthday month — and remember, you can redeem them for $0 both in-store or online.

At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. All product details reflect the price and availability at the time of publication. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.

Milk Makeup Sephora Birthday Gift Set

Can you say "Milk Makeup haul"? This set comes with three of the brand's bestselling products and is perfect for on-the-go touchups. Amp up lashes with a deluxe tube of Kush Mascara, add a flush of color with Lip + Cheek in Werk (a rosy pink), and prep your skin for foundation with a single-use packet of Hydro Grip Primer.

Sol de Janeiro Sephora Birthday Gift Set

Sol de Janeiro's cult-favorite body creams are beloved for creating smooth, instantly radiant skin. If you're all about pampering below the neck, you'll love this duo of Coco Cabana Body Cream and the iconic Brazilian Bum Bum Cream. Both are packed with ingredients like cupuaçu butter and coconut oil for the ultimate glow.

Briogeo Sephora Birthday Gift Set

Briogeo's range of natural hair care has taken the beauty world by storm, and Sephora is giving the Beauty Insider community a real treat with its first-ever hair birthday gift. This one-two punch of Scalp Revival and Don't Despair, Repair is all you need to give your strands some T.L.C. — exfoliate and clarify the gentle way with the charcoal-infused treatment, and follow it up with the deep conditioning mask for ultimate softness and shine.

Jo Malone Sephora Birthday Gift Online Exclusive

Calling all VIB and Rouge members: If none of the other birthday sets strike your fancy, you can also choose from a rotating selection of online-exclusive gifts that will change throughout the year. The first extra-special gift of 2020 is an itty-bitty bottle of Wood Sage & Sea Salt, reportedly one of Meghan Markle's most beloved perfumes.
