NEW Sephora Favorites The Ultimate Travel Bag Value Set (and New Freebie Codes to Go with It)

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

There's a NEW Sephora Favorites set HERE called Ultimate Travel Bag and it retails for $42. The value of this set is $118. If you love skincare and haircare, you might be interested in this one!

NOTE: Aside from the Too Cool for School mask, which is obviously a full-size single-use mask, there are no other full-size products here. HOWEVER, The items I linked to below can all be purchased individually on the Sephora site in the exact sizes that come in this set.


- 1.35 oz ALTERNA CAVIAR Anti-Aging Replenishing Moisture Shampoo

- 1.35 oz ALTERNA CAVIAR Anti-Aging Replenishing Moisture Conditioner

- 0.5 oz Bumble and bumble Prêt-à-Powder (this size retails for $12)

- 2.5 oz L'Occitane Almond Shower Oil (this size retails for $9.50)

- 1.69 oz Sephora Collection Triple Action Cleansing Water (this size retails for $6)

- 1 oz Origins Original Skin™ Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay

- 0.98 oz Too Cool For School Egg Cream Sheet Mask (this mask retails for $6)

- 0.9 oz LAVANILA The Healthy Mini Deodorant in Pure Vanilla (this size retails for $9)

- 0.5 oz Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist

- 0.5 oz Kate Somerville ExfoliKate® Intensive Exfoliating Treatment (this size retails for $24)

- 0.33 oz Murad Intensive-C® Radiance Peel

- 0.25 oz Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation®

- 0.23 oz tarte Tarteguard 30 Sunscreen Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 30

- 0.17 oz Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil

So just adding up the items that can be purchased individually (all in the exact sizes that come in this set), we're up to $66.50. I also want to point out that the sample size for the Origins mask on the Sephora site is $4 (0.34 oz.) and you're getting about 3x that amount in this set. So let's say that 1.0 tube is worth $12. That brings your total up to $78.50 without even factoring in the value of the other items in this set. So once again, as with so many Sephora Favorites sets, this set is an excellent value at $42.

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+):

And just a reminder (because you haven't heard this enough, I know!), if you don't already have free shipping due to your VIB status, you should really consider signing up for Sephora Flash if you don't already have it. For $10 a year, you get free unlimited 2-day shipping on all orders. It pays for itself after just two orders. Plus, your subscription starts the moment you add it to your cart, meaning that anything else you buy will ship free. It's so handy for these Sephora Favorites!

Thanks again, Isu Hapz, for the awesome tip!


  1. Thank you for posting. I would have probably missed this on their website as it looks like they loaded it under the branch Sephora Collection instead of the usual Sephora Favorites.

    1. Yep, I noticed that too when I went to search for it after getting the tip. Isu Hapz is amazing like that! She finds all the sweet Sephora deals before anyone, I swear! We're lucky to have her as a contributor. :)

    2. Yeah I was gonna did I miss this? I was all over the app last night for hours looking for gift ideas...must be kind of hidden like nicstyl said. Thanks to all three of you for the info and explaining that life mystery... :D

    3. Thanks babe. I love you for saying that!!!

  2. Hi!
    I ordered something the other day and used the code SOFRESH and was able to add both the cream and serum to my order. It shipped yesterday and I should be getting it today. Will update if they actually included both.

    1. LUCKY YOU!! I just tried and it's only letting me add one of the two choices to my cart. When I select both samples and try to add both to my cart, it gives me an error message that says, "You may choose 1 sample". Boo! But congrats to you! That's awesome!

    2. There's a vib code that gets you both so that's odd that you mamaged to add both. The code is fresher btw

    3. Hey G! For VIB or VIB Rouge if you use the code FRESHER you can add both the serum and the cream :)

    4. The code was FRESHER for the two samples. Also make sure you are signed in as it was a code for VIB rouge and VIB members. I just tried it and it worked.

    5. Thank you so much, Em and Brenda!! Will add that to my post right away! So appreciate the tips. xo

  3. I will definitely be picking this up! I love the Sephora travel sets, I've been waiting for a new one to come in!

    1. So glad you're liking the looks of this one! :)

  4. I want this but don't need it! 🙈 What to do?!

    1. I've come to the conclusion that EVERYTHING I post about is something I want but don't need, considering that the things I actually need, like facial cleanser, shampoo, etc., I have back-ups for the back-ups and when I'm out of those, I have samples and more samples. But...does that stop me when it's a really good deal? Usually not. Lol. So I'm absolutely zero help to you! ;)

  5. I'm pretty sure the Alterna Caviar Shampoo & Conditioner are the same size as the set featured on Black Friday for $10

    1. Oooh, thank you so much!! That's great to know! xo

    2. Yep I can confirm that, I bought two or three of those sets...I am looking at the bottles now and they are 1.35 oz

      Didn't stop me from buying this bag and using the Fresher code :D

  6. I'm also wondering if the bag meets TSA requirements - the sizes of the items certainly do...

    1. It LOOKS like it probably is (TSA guidelines for bags carrying liquids is a quart, right?) but I don't want to say for sure because I really don't know. But with the drawings of the airplanes on the packaging, you'd think the bag would be TSA-approved, right? Maybe ask the question on the product page and hopefully someone will respond soon? Or call if you want to order ASAP?

  7. Holy crap, this is like the best Sephora bag ever.

  8. Got this in store today. The bag is TSA approved.

  9. Oh boy!! Another want! I still haven't found the Bronze set yet!!!! What to do, what to do?

  10. This is so tempting. Sephora has been putting out some awesome sets lately!

  11. Thank you for the texts! It allows me to drop everthing and buy before they are sold out! Even when it means sitting in a chaise in the outdoor/seasonal section in Target to place orders. :)
