Sephora Closes Stores Until April 3rd To Fight Against COVID-19

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. 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.

Be safe.

You got this.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    Finally Sephora does the right thing! I’m sure you saw their email from a few days ago talking about all of the extra cleaning and sanitizing measures they were undertaking in their stores. I just had to laugh. I know I’m being cynical, but c’mon. How could any reasonable person think they could possible sanitize every surface and testers in those stores? My local stores have always been dirty and the testers were just gross. No way would I believe they were going to fix that to a standard that would be sanitary AND stay open at the same time.

    You nailed it Muse. They need to throw everything out and start fresh. But that will only work if they stay closed long enough for the spread of Covid 19 to really flatten out and slow to an almost complete halt. And I just don’t see that happening. Same with Ulta. I don’t see myself touching a tester in these places for a long time.
