Two and a half years back when I first arrived in Stockholm, the things I used to enjoy was the beauty of nature and the cold drinking water. Water is something everybody enjoys drinking here. Now I am kind of used to with the beauty of nature here which does not amaze me so much as before.
What about the shopping experience ? It was a whole new experience for me. Coming from Asia where everything is so colorful and happening, suddenly turned into a serious grey black color where the light shines only if I turn it on myself. The life in Stockholm was kind of boring and dull. But still I used to enjoy things because it was a new experience. Instead of colorful glittery fine cloths and sandals I had to buy up to knee length, super heavy boots and oversized jackets to get packed for Nordic winter. It was also difficult in terms of buying makeup products. My oily skin turned into super dry flaky one which was quiet difficult to manage for the first few days of my arrival. Not only that but it was also about the availability of the products and knowing what I really need. Though many high end brands are available here but still not all of them and even if I find the brands I do not find all the products. That is kind of sad.
So just few months back Sephora in Sweden started their membership program. I signed up at the very first day and became a white card member. Since then I have started to enjoy shopping with them and always get some free samples at different occasions. After gathering first 1800 points I could be A Black Card Memeber which is their VIP membership.
The benefit of a black card memebership is getting a lot of free samples all the time and also getting offers in different occasions. After each 1800 there is always a goodie bag offer for the Black members. Compared to many other countries it is not too many FREE offers but still Sephora in Sweden is getting better by time. Last time I gota big Sephora bag with pouch and many different high brand products inside.
Getting a birthday gift is something very sweet for their members. The sample products are quite good size and usable for a long time which is really nice. I loved the lip balm I got which is made by Sephora in the flavor cola. There were many other products that I got from Make up forever, benefit. Kat Von D, Too faced and many more in Goodie bags.
Usually I visit Sephora in Bibliotekgatan more often as it is near home but Sephora in Taby centrum and Nacka is so huge and so much fun to visit. If you have got any exciting product to try and test from Sephora let me know below 🙂 Share all your fun moments with me 😀
Happy Shopping !!!
