Sephora will close stores starting today at 5PM until April 3rd to flatten the curve against COVID-19. Sephora isn’t alone as most major retails have done the same including Nordstrom. Sephora is a little late to the show as most major retailers have made an announcement prior.
Sephora.com remains open for business as usual with a new return policy in place temporarily that allows you 60 days from the purchase to the return the product. As you know this was part of Sephora’s old policy but they revised it to 30 days sometime ago and are now re-extending the return time during the pandemic.
They have also provided the code FREESHIP to be used on their site to get free standard shipping on orders (some exclusions apply).
If anyone is effected at this time it surely is the beauty world as I think the last thing on anyone’s mind right now is going out to a store and swatching from testers that have been touched by hundreds of different fingers. I do hope at this time stores and counters take the time out to toss out testers and start fresh when stores re-open. I think it’ll be a really long time before I’m comfortable touching a tester in stores. How about you?
I do feel some comfort in stores closing as it might help to flatten the curve. However, out economy is going to take a major hit with all the closings.
I hope this post finds you well today! Remember, not everything is cancelled. If you’re home enjoy that time doing something you love! Books are not cancelled, binging a good show is not cancelled, re-organizing your closet or your spice rack (I totally did that on Sunday) is not cancelled, sitting down with your dog and snuggling is not cancelled. There are a lot of things that are still around to make you smile and take your head out of the doom and gloom space it might be in.
You got this.
