Is there any product that can help clear acne scars on my back? They make me incredibly self-conscious and I honestly didn't go to the beach this summer because of them. The scars are spread all over my back and are a darkish brown color and I would love to hear advice or recommendations from anyone that has also experienced this. Thank you!
Ok. I need a NEW makeover. Please make more feminine/girly and new. I have brown hair, hazel eyes and light color skin. I'm on the left. Couldn't find a better picture. Also what would you do with my hair (cut/style)?? I don't have bangs anymore. Please help me!? I really need help badly... (pictures would help some)
We swatched Urban Decay's new Naked3(!!) palette to see how the colors looked on different skintones. What do you think?
Do you have a swatch of this palette? Post a pic in the thread below!

So I'd like to maintain a board for the Canadian customers. A place where we can share our events, promos, problems etc. I sometimes see deals and info for Canadians and rather then posting a new convo all the time maybe we can just share on this board. I think it would be easier to communicate with each other if we only had one board to follow. - I recently posted that Nail Polish Canada has free shipping on any orders for a limited time. - I forgot to mention that The Bay will be hosting Beauty Gala's this coming week. You have to buy a ticket but out of the 10$ 2 goes to charity and 8 towards your purchase. Some counters give free stuff when you buy the ticket from them. You get your make-up done too at that counter I'm going and very excited about it! EDITED: Anyone interested in getting Tonymoly products you can contact them via their Canadian Facebook page to place an order. 5$ shipping, free over purchases 50$. I think they have a store in Pacific Mall in Markham ON
So my boyfriend has acne that occasionally flares up and he hates it, he just doesn't know what to do about it. Sometimes his skin is perfectly clear, Then other times it's bad We were using african black soap to keep it at bay but his mom bought him a new kind and it hasn't been working that well. I'm going to pick some up of the kind that does work, but we're still looking for other things to help with the redness and everything else. He works out a lot and as a result, sweats a lot (more then most people but he's perfectly healthy). He washes his face daily and extra hard after jiu jitsu so he's a bit stumped on what else to do. I'm thinking his pores may be clogged but that's something I have no idea how to fix or what a good remedy would be. So any product suggestions would be well appreciated!
I'm stumped on ideas for small gifts to buy my kids' teachers. Any teachers out there who could tell me what gifts you love to receive? Any ideas are appreciated! 2 of the teachers are male mid-to-late 20's. 1 female early 20's and 1 female late 30's. edit - My children attend a Lutheran school so Christmas/religious themed gifts would be appropriate.
Did anyone else get sucked in to Ulta's cyber monday and still not even get a shipping notice? I never order from Ulta but they had some gifts I missed out on or didn't have at Sephora (the $10 Art of Shaving kit for my BIL, a $19 Bare Minerals kit for my SIL) and the free gift looked nice. I ordered just after midnight on sunday night/monday morning and it still says "order processing" and since it's been 5 days the pending charges aren't even on m CC anymore. I know other people are having the same issues because their Facebook page is blowing up and they sent an email out letting everyone know they are experiencing delays. They said it will still be here within 10 business days (which is really 2 weeks) but I am not confident my order will complete or have the free gift (if something is OOS it will mess up my christmas shopping because I thought I was done). I get it's shopping season, but in comparison, all my other holiday orders have been here for a few days. My Sephora CM order that I placed late on Monday got here Wednesday. My giftopia order was only 1 or 2 days behind, which wasn't bad at all. I'm on day 6 with Ulta. Anyone else having holiday shipping woes or get sucked into Ulta? I knew I was a Sephora girl before, but I can say with confidence now that Sephora > Ulta. Plus, Sephora's CS has always been good to me. Ulta doesn't seem to be handling this well.
So I buy minis of mascaras because even though I use my mascara almost every day I can't seem to use it up.....it's been 5 months now that I have had my mini benefit they're real and I still think it works just fine. I really want to try to use it up or at least wait till it dries out. Do I have to throw it away??
I love seeing other peoples empties! So I decided to make a board where people could post pictures of their empties, or just tell us about them! I'd also be interested in knowing whether you're repurchasing anything or not.
Need a little help from ladies who use or have tried the PTR Max Complexion Pads. Tried them for the first time tonight, and have a bunch of questions now. After I used the first one, it stung a bit upon application, my face felt "tight" after, and I had facial flushing (mild) for about 30 minutes after. Not to mention the high alcohol content made my eyes burn! I put on some soothing/calming facial lotion after 30 minutes, and now my skin feels completely normal (but boy did it suck up lotion like it hasn't before). So my questions are- are these ok or expected side effects to get from using these pads? Will my skin get used to it? Secondly, will these work if I only use them every 2-3 days? The alcohol content I'm worried might dry my face out if I use these daily. I'm pretty sure I should have been conservative and purchased the mild version of this, but I absolutely hate returning things and want to see if I can't make this work until I can use it up.
So my boyfriend and I have been together for almost three years now, dating, and have known each other for five or six. He turned 21 back in July so I feel like we're getting further and further into that 'adult' world. So for Christmas I wanted to mix things up and get him things I know he likes [Video games, some custom stuff, etc] but also some things that are a bit more mature [The mini Art of Shaving Kit, though I bought it because I really like the cute little brush] and would like to get him a cologne as he's never had one before. So I guess my question is, do you pick out a cologne that you like for your significant other or do you let them pick on their own? I want it to be a surprise so I don't want him to come to the store with me to pick, and I also sampled two yesterday that I loooove but I'm not sure he'd like because well, this is new for him [though he likes whatever I put on myself so I'd like to think I can pick things that he'd like for him to...]. So I'm torn between getting him one of the two that I liked or the Fragrance Sampler and letting him pick something from that [though it has neither of the two that I like and it makes me a little sad but I can deal]. I mean no matter what I do Sephora has a great return policy so we could always come back and exchange it out for something else, but I'd rather get it done in one swoop.
I have a few samples/palettes that require lip brushes for application. I bought the Sephora Collection Pro Lip Brush #81 (shown below), but I'm not a fan of it. Perhaps I don't know how to use it. Either way, I'm not getting the results I want. Anyone have a suggestion on a lip brush for dummies? It doesn't have to be from Sephora. I'd also be okay with someone telling me exactly how to use a lip brush.
So every year around this time I start watching Christmas movies. Some I own some I watch on TV. What are some of your favorites Christmas movies? Mine are: Elf A dog named Christmas Santa Claus the movie (this is an old one) Miracle on 34th Street The Santa Clause 1 and 2 On the 2nd day of Christmas (which I can't seem to find anymore) Updated... I forgot too many While You Were Sleeping Die Hard (1, 2, 3... might as well watch all 3 "originals") All I want for Christmas Christmas Vacation Home Alone Christmas with the Kranks The Family Man Toy Story (Favs are 1 and 3) Jingle All The Way. I love Arnold! Looks Who's Talking Now.
A while back I posted a thread about products or techniques that have changed your makeup, skincare or hair care. http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/Products -and-or-Techniques-that-Changed-Your-Makeup-Skinca ... On weekends I like to try new things, either products or techniques. Today in particular I had numerous epic fails. From one of my shadows shattering in the case (new, too, ugh) to a new BB cream providing zero coverage and actually turning my face red, to the second time this week cascading glitter all over my face from my eye shadow!! LOL I had to use makeup remover to take some stuff off it was so bad. Just wondering if anyone else experiences the same. I do like to change things up, but it doesn't always mean success.
Good morning, dolls! Let's start the day off with a random quiz: 1. What plans do you have for the weekend? Going to go out to eat and hang out with my coworker/friend. 2. If you could wear one perfume for the rest of your life, what would it be? This is a tough one, but I think I am going to have to Say Gucci Envy Me. 3. Are you an only child? If not, how many siblings do you have? No, I have three siblings; two brothers and one sister. 4. Have you got all your holiday shopping done? Nope; I still need to order a couple of other stuff for the family. 5. What special holiday meal will you be enjoying this year? Glazed ham with honey, mashed potatoes and gravy.
I have been using Cetaphil cleanser for over a month with no problem, however, now when I put it on my skin, it starts to burn. So I am thinking about switching to something more simpler. I was looking at the Koh De Gen cleansing water, or any suggestions you guys have!
Shaking my head!! someone posted this on Sephora's Facebook page and I really hope they do something about it. Instead of canceling orders for "fraud prevention", I think Sephora should spend some time preventing this from going on. How is it even possible that someone has 13 reward cards to sell?
Whats the best way to apply cream highlighter/blush over liquid foundation w/o affecting the makeup beneath it? I just purchased the Illamasqua gleam cream in aurora and I love it! My only issue with it so far is the correct way to apply it without streaking/rubbing off my liquid foundation beneath it?
Hello all! I am doing a secret Santa at school with a bunch of friends and I am trying to figure out what to get. We are juniors in high school and I know the girl I have wears makeup often. Any ideas? Looking to spend less than $25. Only thing I could find was this Too Faced palette. What do you think? http://www.sephora.com/jingle-all-the-way-P383427
I've recently invested in a skincare routine, after years of never really using anything. I'm 27, and around 23-24 I started breaking out a ton! I have acne scars and combo oily skin. These are the products that II purchased: philosophy pure mattness cleaner, shiiseido pureness toner, camu camu vitamins c serum, OTC acne cream, korres yogurt moisturizer, and Lancôme visionarire. Can someone put these in the correct order for use? Also, should I add anything?
I was wondering but searched and did not find anything here about it (not surprising, it's not sold at Sephora, unfortunately). if not, what is your hand care routine to keep your hands soft and smooth? Do you have one? Any great products you can recommend?
Hi, I would like a restart on my beauty products - from skin care to make-up. I am almost 40 and need to start using some products to help hide/repair aging and wrinkles, etc... plus just also want/need new makeup. Can you give me an idea of how much it would cost to get this kind of set up?
