It's Back: Sephora Favorites Beauty Unmasked Value Set (Plus: New Freebie Codes)

UPDATE: thanks to reader Kate for letting us know that the Sephora Beauty Closet is back too HERE, but there are only a few left! (UPDATE #2: Looks like this one's now out of stock. Congrats to everyone who got one!)

Thanks once again to frequent contributor Isu Hapz (@isu1989 on Instagram) for this hot tip!

In addition to the new Sephora Favorites The Ultimate Travel Bag here, there's another new set now on the Sephora site (but it's actually not "new"; it's a re-issue). The Sephora Favorites Beauty Unmasked Set, which was available for a brief period in the Fall of 2015, is now back on the Sephora website HERE for $38. This set has a value of $84 and here's what it contains:

  • 1 oz Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask To Clear Pores 
  • 1 oz Boscia Luminizing Black Mask 
  • 0.5 oz Erborian Pâte au Ginseng Black Concentrated Mask 
  • 0.5 oz GlamGlow YOUTHMUD Tinglexfoliate Treatment (this size retails for $22)
  • 0.5 oz Peter Thomas Roth Irish Moor Mud Purifying Black Mask 
  • 0.33 oz Algenist Algae Brightening Mask

This set does not contain any full-size products. However, you can purchase the GlamGlow treatment in the size that comes in this set, and it retails for $22 individually. So it's like you're getting the other items in this set for $16, which breaks down to $3.20 per item. On a personal note, that GlamGlow treatment has been sort of a game-changer for me and I highly recommend giving it a try if you haven't already.

As always, here are some FREEBIE CODE IDEAS you can use if you're buying this set today (all codes below are valid on all orders $25+):

    1. Thank you so much!! Will add to the list! :D xo

    2. No problem – I love the freebies! And, um, sorry about the crazy typhoon the Clinique. "Orrectung" = "Correcting lol, but I imagine you guessed that.

    3. OMG I did NOT catch that! Lol! Thank you so much for letting me know--I just fixed it. xoxo

      (And I had to laugh at typhoon = typo) ;)

    4. Oh my god, I cannot win with autocorrect today!

    5. I just left a comment on a YouTube video were I meant to say "cotija" cheese and my phone auto-corrected to "coitja" which doesn't even make sense! So I 100% feel you today. ;)

  2. The Sephora Favorites Beauty Closet is also available!

    1. OMG I can't believe they brought THAT back too! I can't do a full post because it says "only a few left" but I am adding this to the top of this post. Thank you!!!!!

    2. I know! I just updated my post--I kept reloading the page to see how long it would take since there were only a few in stock to begin with, and it didn't take long! :(

    3. Aww they took down the page, can't even see what was in the Beauty Closetor for how much. Bummer...

      I received my Flash shipped Ultimate Travel Bag today, pretty sweet!

  3. Bought this Sephora Unmasked Set this morning as soon as you posted and chose the Boscia White Charcoal Mattifying Setting Spray!😍 Thank you again! 😘 I've always wanted to try that specific GlamGlow treatment

  4. To be honest Flash shipping isn't thst great a deal. You an get free shipping if you spend $50 or more, which I'm sure a lot of folks do. The free shipping is fast (2-3 days) to wear I live. So I think people are better off saving their money personally.

    1. I have to politely disagree with you. A LOT of people don't want to spend $50 to qualify for free shipping. Sephora offers so many under-$50 deals on the sale page as well as the Sephora Favorites sets which are often below $50. As I mentioned, if you order at least two times a year from Sephora, this subscription pays for itself. So for every order you place that's under $50 for the rest of the year, you're saving $5.95 EACH TIME. That is an excellent deal and very much worth the $10 annual fee, in my opinion!

      Of course if you are ALWAYS ordering at least $50 worth of merchandise with every order you place, or you only order once or twice a year from Sephora, then it is not a good deal. Those are the only two exceptions, in my opinion.
