The beauty universe recently went into a frenzy when it was revealed that Sephora Beauty Insider points would now expire. Previously, people could build up their Sephora points until they were ready to redeem them. So, those who loved saving up for the massive 500-point rewards could go it without fear them points would expire. However, that has recently changed because Sephora Beauty Insider points will now have an expiration date.

It’s reported that as of last week, Sephora updated its Beauty Insider program terms and conditions so Beauty Insider, VIB, and VIB Rogue accounts will now have a clause stating that unredeemed points will expire after 18 months of inactivity.

There’s no need to panic quite yet because it’s pretty easy to keep your account active. If you’re a frequent Sephora shopper, you don’t have to worry. Sephora also revealed on Twitter that even members of the program who don’t shop frequently can still keep their accounts active if they pick up their free birthday bonus. It’s only after you don’t do anything for 18 months that your points won’t carry over.

Given all of the amazing new launches Sephora always rolls out and the fact the birthday bonus comes every 12 months, we should have no problem keeping our accounts active.
