Sephora Beauty Insider 500 Point Reward L’Occitane Set

I’ve been saving up my Sephora Beauty Insider points for months (I had accumulated around 780 points to be exact). I received an email alert about this 500 Point Reward with five L’Occitane minis. I decided to redeem my points with a recent order of the NARS Matte Multiples and added the Beauty Insider 500 Point set to my basket at checkout. It arrived last week and the minis are adorable. I’ve never seen such cute hand creams (they are 0.3 oz versus the full sized 1 oz tubes). I haven’t seen this set in stores near me but it’s still online while supplies last (if you’ve spotted it in store please share in the comments). The set that is available online comes with:
  • Shea Butter Hand Cream 0.3 oz/10 ml
  • Amande Delicious Hand Cream 0.3 oz/10 ml
  • Amande Shower Oil 1.18 fl oz/35 ml
  • Amande Supple Skin Oil 0.5 fl oz/15 ml
  • Verbena Body Lotion 1 oz/30 ml
  • Small canvas pouch

I’ve tried all the items before except the face oil. All are classic staples and the sizes are perfect for your purse, to store in your work desk or small enough for travel. I get a bit nervous when it comes to trying face oils so if you’ve tried this one I’d love your input. Have you seen any good Sephora Beauty Insider minis lately? I find it’s hit or miss but I love that Sephora stores and tracks your points for you and allows you to save them. Any other deals you’ve spotted?

    OMG! This is such an amazing gift from sephora! Now I feel like I need to go there ASAP and do some shopping

      I know what you mean! LOL, I didn't see this at my local Sephora but for me shopping in stores always leads to me adding on more items that I see in person, so it was good for me to find this online.

    I believe that's a body oil and not for the face. Supposed to be good for stretch marks. 🙂

      Thank you for letting me know! I would have applied it to the wrong area, lol.

    These pictures are STUNNING what kind camera did you use? 🙂

      Thank you Kenia – my camera info can be found on the ABOUT PAGE, it's a Sony NEX-6. I am working on a photography/equipment post but it's taking longer than expected. Hope this helps!

    Wow wow wow! Like Kenia, I was just going to comment on how beautiful your pictures are!!

    I picked up this in-store at a Sephora in Peabody, MA.

      Awesome, thank you for sharing – looks like this arrived in stores the week after my last Sephora visit.

    This is a set worth redeeming 500 points for! Alas, I have recently redeemed mine so now I don't have enough points to get this one 🙁

    Sephora has been putting out some worthy beauty awards recently. Late last year there was a Dior set (it came with Dior Addict perfume and lipstick minis and a bracelet) and a YSL set (this came with mascara, eyeliner, and makeup remover minis, and a bracelet); I was so delighted to get both of these sets!

      I remember that Dior set, it was so so chic!

    The Rosabotanica one is great!

    Agree! I had been saving for something "good" and cashed some points in last week at the Roseville Galleria in Northern Ca 🙂

    I'm a collector of lip product minis and just recently received a mini Urban Decay naked lip gloss and a mini Givenchy lipstick.

    I think about getting this one, but i don't like the scent of their hand cream for some reason? In any event, i redeemed points for the balenciaga rosabotanica mini + scarf so i don't have enough for this one anyway! love the pouch though – so cute!

    I got it in Chicago about 10 days ago

    I saw this gift today at the Sephora at UTC (University Town Center) in San Diego. Also picked up the cute $3 gift at L' Occitane today.

    AAHHHH that mini hand cream, I die! I have a small collection of L'occitane and Crabtree & Evelyn hand creams, but I think L'occitane wins out, especially in the winter. Love that pouch too, this reminds me I need to go redeem my points….although I think I'm only eligible for one of the smaller ones at the moment. Hope they have something good soon!

    Looks so cute <3 <3 <3

    I think that's meant to be a body oil too (I have and use it myself). 🙂

    This is such a great Sephora Beauty Insider Points Reward! Not only are the products great and good for traveling but the bag is so cute too 🙂
    p.s. your pictures look amazing!

    Yes, that is a body oil and it makes your skin more toned. FYI: that shower oil is good for shaving your legs.

    I love l'occitane! The Verveine scented stuff is fabulous and fresh. Very citrusy. I picked up a set in the sale at debenhams for about 19 spondooleys. Full size body wash, small lotion and fragrance , hand cream and soap. Perfect for taking away. Their creams are *so* creamy. Love it xx

    That's an amazing gift, all those minis look so cute!
