The 8 best limited-edition picks from Sephora's Lunar New Year product roundup

The Lunar New Year, also widely known as the Chinese New Year, is a mere days away, on Jan. 25. This date marks the beginning of the traditional Chinese calendar and is commemorated with celebrations specific to the tradition's originator: China.

Each year, the occasion is associated with a zodiac animal, with 2020 marking the Year of The Rat. Various companies will be displaying images of The Rat — or famous rats (hey, Mickey!) — throughout their promotional campaigns as it represents hard work and wealth.

While the most widely known tradition remains to pass around red envelopes stuffed with money, Sephora has added a new practice to the mix: gifting on-theme skincare and beauty products (or getting them for yourself, of course). Note that these products are only available for a limited time, so stock may be limited.
