Beauty Confessions
Ok so I've been wanting to make this thread for a while. I've also been wanting to start a "random thoughts" thread...but I figured I'd separate the categories so that at least the "beauty" one is on the front page, rather than hidden in off topic. So, have a beauty-related thought but don't think it's worth starting a thread about ? Post it here !   today I got a facial at an extraordinarily nice spa. A real treat. And the results were immediate and truly great. But guys: she pulled out a clarisonic and a foamy cleanser for that first initial cleanse, and I nearly had a heart attack. Great for a lot of people but most of you know how I feel about those things !!!!!! Overall, as I said, it was great and my skin is happy. But sheesh.
Hair
Would hair conditioner or coconut oil hair conditioner work for heat protectant?

I've been on the Ipsy waiting list, but still look at the thread. I thought we could have a shared thread from all the subscription boxes (including non-beauty ones likes underpants and lifestyle such as Wantable and POPSugar). That way we can live vicariously through each others goodies!   (I know there are unboxing videos on YouTube, but I do not have the patience to sit through a five minute video about someone apologizing for the state of their hair. And I know there are blogs where I can see photos, but everyone usually gets different items in their boxes)

I thought it would be helpful to have a central place where we can report things that are amiss!   Sometimes, promo codes are not as advertised or products on the website have an inaccurate picture or description.  If you see or receive something that is incorrect, please let us know here!

So... warmer weather is coming. Wonder if there are any product(s) to get my feet looking and feeling wonderful again so that I can show them off. Anyone out there willing to help me?

I feel like I'm not being respected as a customer. Here's why I'm pissed.   - Extraordinary rewards fiasco (do I need to say more?) - Becca x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector® Pressed not released as of yet for the canadian market (It will be fixed eventually, please cancel all your plans and refresh the website non-stop until you can FINALLY spend all your money!) - Points value online lesser than $$$ (now fixed but it went on for years!) - Sephora sale last november (tech issues, accusations of racism, no comments from Sephora, the sale had started and for days, canadians couldn't order. All the good stuff was gone when it was finally fixed.) - Duties Are you as pissed as I am? Do you have anything to add to the list?

I love watching Empties videos on YT. Now that May is over, are there any products you are close or already finished with it? Post a mini review and let us know if you'll repurchase or not!     so here's my first   Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash - so this extra large bottle has been sitting in my shower for at least 4 months?? I am finally close to being done! I like it because it's a very gentle exfoliant and the scent is nice - but for me it doesn't give me the cleanest wash (meaning I have to wash my face twice in the shower to feel squeaky clean?) Will I repurchase? Probably not. I am moving on to the Glamglow Supercleanse Daily Cleanser - tried a sample of this and love the tingly feeling after it washes off!

A few photos showed up on my instagram through Beautezine, and apparently there is a Canada-Exclusive lip collection coming out in July for the fall from Bite, let's call it the Maple Collection. It apparently features 5 matte lipsticks with a maple scent, and a Maple Agave Lip Mask. So jealous, I'd love to get my hands on a maple-scented agave lip mask! Here are the photos that Beautezine posted on her instagram:     and swatches:

I'm loving this nail polish from Nails Inc. I used the superfood base coat, Nailkale in Victoria and finished it off with the 45 second top coat.  The color is so rich and easy to apply.

Hey y'all because I got amazing answers on here before I have decided to come back and ask another question.   What is the best way to remover those nasty blackheads that are on your nose and chin area??  I have little tiny blackhead on my nose/cheek/chin area that I cant seem to get rid of. I do a glamglow mud mask like once a week and use face wash every day and night. Help I am stuck and I am really tired of looking in the mirror and seeing blackheads all the time, its like you can play connect the dots on my nose and its pretty gross.   Any advice is appreciated

Starting a new thread for Sephora inside JCP exclusives!   They often have some awesome sets and exclusive perks, so if you have one near you, it's definitely worth checking out!   Aaaaaaand starting with these two!   JCP exclusive Favorites Set: Ultimate Cleanse $34 for 8 deluxe samples (honestly all a little bigger than deluxe samples) AND you get a certificate to redeem for a full-item (listed below)!  I honestly think this is the first time they've included a certificate in a non-mascara or fragrance kit, and I'm SO EXCITED (and definitely went and bought the set immediately after work today).   And here are the values of the full-sized products! Algenist 5 oz Cleanser $38 Boscia 5 oz Cleansing Oil $28 Dr. Jart+ 8.4 oz Dermaclear $32 Josie Maran 6 oz Argan Cleansing Oil $32 Murad 6.75 AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser $36 OleHenriksen 7 oz African Red Tea Cleanser $30 Peter Thomas Roth 8 oz Cleansing Gel $38 Philosophy 8 oz Purity Cleanser $24   Aaaaannndd second! Sephora is forever spotty with promotional emails, but check your inbox, you may have received this email! I just grabbed mine today and it's ADORABLE, looks just like the picture. It unfortunately is only one per email, and you have to scan the barcode in the "print offer" link so you can't forward it to your friends, but you got the email, definitely go get yours!   I'll update this as things pop up! If you find anything great from Sephora inside JCP, feel free to share it on here!

I already have the Filmstar bronze & glow palette but looking into some of her other products.   Does anyone have any experiences they would like to share esp with her Light Wonder Foundation, her blush and the Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder? I'm interested in getting these three things but still on the fence about taking the plunge!    Please let me know, many BTers opinions have helped me out on products before Thanks in advance!

Hello all! So we all know about Canada's Maple Collection, but let's talk about this berry collection exclusive to the U.S.! Beautezine posted this picture on their Instagram:  https://instagram.com/p/2BTkPJzCTb/?taken-by=beaut ezine and made a comment about the US getting a berry collection. I have been looking through Instagram pictures with the #bitebeauty, and it appears there's an event called SBES (seems to be a Sephora University thing) going on today. There have been a few pictures posted already where a "Limited Edition Frozen Berry" lipstick is being made at the Bite Beauty table. See:  https://instagram.com/p/2mBinJjj-E/?taken-by=__lin dseyann__   https://instagram.com/p/2lm-Z-C0V6/?taken-by=theha ppyhappy   Ok so I noticed those pics also used the #frozenberries, and I found this pic, it's official!:  https://instagram.com/p/2jywsLmCQd/?taken-by=alexc ruzmkup EDIT: Bite Beauty just posted this picture!  https://instagram.com/p/2mOR7-CAGL/?taken-by=biteb eauty_

Anyone else get this via UPS today for participating in the SPF chat a few weeks back?  It was a pleasant surprise. I can't use the products because they have chemical SPF ingredients but I will be sure to pass them along in a TSB real soon

We are excited to announce that as of this past weekend, we have started shipping to Canadian addresses from our new warehouse in Canada. By being able to ship directly within Canada, our clients will receive many new benefits, including faster processing and delivery times, elimination of duty charges and the addition of new brands and items to our Canadian product assortment. If there are certain favorites that appear to be out of stock, try searching for the product by name; in some cases the product item number for the product may just be different now. For other products that no longer appear on the site, we apologize that this is due to language compliance on packaging that is required to adhere to by law in order to ship within Canada. Please continue to check back as these products may become available again in the future. Q: What are some of the brands that have been removed? A: SK-II, Perricone MD, Drybar, Sunday Riley, select Murad acne products, and La Vanilla are not available for now, but we are working hard with all our brands to get their packaging Canada compliant so that we can offer them to you in the future. Q: Which brands have been added? A: We recently added shu uemera and Biotherm. Q: Why are some brands no longer available on Sephora.ca but available in store? A: Depending on the region, some Canadian stores may be able to carry these brands due to French language compliance. Store assortment is not affected. Please contact your store directly for specific product availability. Q: How do I find out if Sephora.ca still carries the products I love? A: Search by the product name as the product item number (that is used in your basket or love list) may have changed. Q: Will I still be able to get early access or limited edition products and promotions? A: Yes! We are working hard to get the hottest launches that are available and compliant for our Canadian clients. Q: How much faster will I get my Sephora orders? A: Much faster! Because we are now shipping from Canada, you save the time between our US distribution center to Canada. Q: Do I still have to pay duty on my orders? A: No duties are charged now that we’re delivering from Canada. Q: What about returns? A: If you aren’t happy with your products, returns are now free! Q: Will this move affect my BI points? A: Yes, actually. Your BI points on Sephora.ca will now be allocated based on the CAD list price, vs the USD price.

I've always wanted to try wearing foundation, but I don't want to put my money towards something I found out I don't need. What exactly is foundation used for? When should I start wearing it? My skin is clear most of the time, except for the occasional spot on my forehead every once in a while. Usually I would cover that pimple up with concealer, and would just see no use in wearing foundation. Please help!
