It's been a bit of a year, and so we think it's safe to say that we're all already looking forward to 2021. But Sephora has really upped the ante by announcing its birthday rewards for the new year ahead of time. Hurrah!

If you're a Sephora member, you'll know that when it's your birthday you get a free gift during your birthday month, whether you're at Insider, Rouge or VIB (Very Important Beauty Insider) level.
Not only did the beauty retailer launch its own K-beauty skincare line, OTZI skincare this month, but now Sephora has announced exactly what you'll get during your birthday month in 2021 – and we're already excited. Hey, we said it's been a year!
During your birth month, you're able to pick from a selection of gift sets containing mini beauty products, with more choices available for higher level members. Although Insiders usually have fewer gifts to choose from than Rouge and VIB members, this year *all* member levels will be able to choose from four different options on offer. Sephora, you're too kind.
Here's which brands are part of the store's birthday freebies next year, and the miniatures you'll get inside each respective gift.
NARS birthday reward
- NARS Laguna Bronzer
- NARS Laguna Lip Balm
Moroccanoil birthday reward
- Moroccanoil Protect and Prevent Cream
- Moroccannoil Treatment Oil
- Moroccanoil Night Body Serum
Kérastase birthday reward

Laneige birthday reward

As if we already couldn't wait until 2021, Sephora is making things look even brighter. Roll on the new year!
