So what are your beauty pet peeves? What grinds your gears? Share your stories!!!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Yeah...I've been trying to save up a few bucks here or there and also slim down my makeup collection, but at a certain point it's almost not worth it. Especially in the cases where someone is like "$6 SHIPPED?"

Well darling, let's do the math...shipping a parcel is usually about $8 at least...so if I get $6 and it costs me $8 to ship it, I paid $2 out of my own pocket to send you a product. Yeah, I don't think so.  

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

yeah I swear... ugh.  Did you try local ads?  At least no shipping but comes with another set of problems Smiley Very Happy

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@veronika23 hahaha yes I did, with some bulkier items! But that was ridiculous as well. People absolutely refused to meet anywhere convenient for me and expected me to travel to them (sometimes they were over an hour away!). Some people are so unreasonable. GAH! 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Asche OMG yes!!! again! LOL  I swear like I won't travel across the city to meet you for a 5$/10$ item. I swear... I just don't get it.

FedEx SmartPost

UPS SurePost

 

I've received packages from Australia within the time it took these services to get a package from New Jersey to New York.

 

Le Sigh.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

oh, I hate their discounted services! they can take up to 1.5 weeks sometimes.

 

UPS has been especially annoying lately. Their 1, 2 and 3 day shipping is taking a few more days than they say it will. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Oh no Smiley Sad I'm expecting something via FedEx SmartPost

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

That's insane!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I signed up for paperless statements from Nordstrom, and to reward me for my eco-friendly choice, they sent me a $5 Nordstrom Note ... on paper. Le sigh.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

haha silly! I know a lot of companies are pushing for being eco-friendly but yet if you cancel statements and such they still send out their marketing -_-

A little peeve...cactus legs! Smiley Very Happy

I am currently recovering from a procedure; and cannot shave my legs because of pain and mobility issues. I really hate having to sport the dreaded stubble, especially in the summer!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Aw,  feel ya!  I just had my first good shave in months a couple days ago.  I'd been shaving but not very nicely. I can't stop rubbing my legs together. 😄

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Hope you are ok!  I totally get that... I caved years ago and got laser treatments. Best thing I ever invested in considering I'd shave and not even 24 hours later it wasn't smooth no more.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@veronika23 Thanks! 😊 I will be down for about a week. I have always been interested in the laser treatment....especially right at this moment lol!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@angel7594 hope the week goes by fast for you so you can get to shaving those legs Smiley Very Happy Smiley Wink

 

If you ever look into it remember that not all machines are made the same and that you would be better off going to a derm or a highly skilled place instead of a beauty spa.  I know plenty of people that it barely worked for them... Also saw horror stories of people being burned :/ I'm happy that years later it's still good.  I mean I have those baby blond hairs here and there but that's pretty much it.

 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@veronika23,

I hope it goes fast too! Smiley Very Happy

Thanks for the advice about laser treatment. I would definitely go through my dermatologist, that is frightening about people getting burned! Smiley Sad

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@angel7594 I know it is! I always find it's best to leave things like this to the derm rather than a beauty spa.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I feel ya...smooth legs are definitely a priority in my life Smiley Happy

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

This is all me...annoying myself...I am the biggest advocate with speaking with your wallet to companies. I really value & love Ulta's reward program 1000x's over Sephora's. Yet I've already re-rouged for 2017 and haven't re-Platinum'ed!!! What gives?!?

 

Oh, and the worst part is, I've intended NOT to re-rouge since the program started... Smiley Sad
