There’s a buzz around Market Square this week. And it's because something very special is happening. The secret is finally out - beauty superstore Sephora has landed in Guernsey.

The Sephora UK website launched this week and there are plans to open a major flagship store in London next spring. However, following the company’s acquisition of FeelUnique last year, we're lucky enough here in Guernsey to already have a Sephora store bang in the middle of town. The store is currently in the middle of its transformation from FeelUnique to Sephora. Many eagle-eyed locals have already spotted the signage changing over and we expect the full changes to be in place in the next couple of weeks.

Founded in France in 1969, Sephora has stores in many places, but it undoubtedly has the biggest cult following in the US. And based on a very unscientific poll undertaken here at The List, we're sure that you’re either incredibly excited that you no longer need to wait for a transatlantic trip to get your hands on the biggest beauty brands and enjoy that unique Sephora store experience - or Sephora is the beauty outlet you never knew you needed in your life, and you can’t wait to find out more.


Here are just a few of the reasons you need to take a look at closer look.


The Advent Calendar

Just in time for the festive season, the Sephora Beauty Advent Calendar is the gift that keeps on giving. Expertly curated, it features an enviable mix of deluxe and cult-favourite brands, all available to shop on the new The calendar is worth over £711, it costs just £139 and contains 34 must-have products, 17 of which are full-size. It’s the perfect choice for someone special (and yep, you could be someone special). With skincare from Omorovicza, Medik8, Augustinus Bader and The Ordinary, makeup from Huda Beauty, Nars and Too Faced, and other products from the likes of Mugler and Neom, it's a must-have for any beauty buff, or for anyone looking for the opportunity to get to know more brands  - and more about Sephora's offering - this winter.


The Beauty Box 

Speaking of those interested in discovering new brands in an affordable way, Sephora actually offers a subscription service that allows you to build a Beauty Box by choosing five deluxe samples you really want to try with a flexible plan starting from just £11.95 per month. Subscribe for three, six or twelve months - or if you're not sure, you can simply buy one box to begin with.


The Sephora Collection

Who else better to trust to create their own range than the experts themselves? There are hundreds of own brand products in the Sephora Collection. Its goal? To help us create our own beauty. It’s easy to use, affordable, accessible to all and committed to a responsible approach to beauty. We'll definitely be trying it out - and reporting back.



The Rewards Scheme

There are three ways to benefit with Sephora Rewards:

  1. Firstly, you’ll get 10% off your two favourite brands for life.
  2. The second way to feel rewarded is with a 20% off birthday gift on your special day.
  3. And finally, when you spend £75 and you’ll receive £5 off your next order.  


The Christmas Shop

And speaking of ideal timing for this UK launch, The Christmas Shop is also now ready to take your orders with beauty gift sets, skincare sets, fragrance and bath & body sets on offer, alongside a selection of advent calendars at a variety of price points, there’s something for everyone. No more boring gift sets under the tree this year.


Oh, and here’s a bonus tip for the next couple of weeks. As part of the switchover and making space for new stock, we spotted that many of the Feel Unique brands are on sale in the store, so pop into town to pick up a bargain.
