Dr. Dennis Gross Medi-Spa Peel Results!
Afternoon BT! I got the Medi-Spa Peel from Dr. Dennis Gross from Sephora au gratis and these are the results. Today 8/22 is Day 1.  I will switch off each day with Alpha Beta Original strength peels.  Results with 1 use: smoothed my skin, reduces a majority of redness, helped dry up 2 under the skin pimples that have been driving me crazy, and my skin glows!    *I never ever post pictures of my skin without make up or some additional skin care but you all are so nice it makes it much easier!* Here we go!              Before:                      AFTER :     So Far So Good DDG never disappointing with his products. The pads felt softer than the AB.Peels, and they have specific directions to follow for actually putting it on your face. Very easy to follow. The smell is mellow compared to the peels. I'll update every other day as I use the Medi-Spa peel but I'll take pictures every day Cheers!

Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Medi-Spa Peel
My love for Sephora continues. I was sent a comped, brand new, full sized Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Medi-Spa Peel (launching 08-26-14) to review. I will use it for the first time tonight, so check back to this post if the product interests you.

My skin is still glowing.  It was my exfoliating day too, so I worried it would take away the glow.  It did not. see post

Treatment
My Sephora has one of the best staff there. Everyone remembers my face, some have made the effort of remembering my name which is so flattering. Last night I went to buy a Sephora brand eyeshadow, I have never bought single shadows but the other day I bought one and I was so impresed that I decided to buy my white matte from the sephora line too. Anyway, I walk in and instantly see the new MUFE artist shadows and naturally I gravitate towards them, by the way... blown -away-. A sephora lady comes up to me and provides me with information about the mufe shadows and I ask her about the one I bought but unfortunately in stores they don't have the name of the shadows - just the number. We ended off with the note "Okay, I'll let you play now!" .. I have never been told this but I definitely felt like a kid in a candy show - which is a great feelnig in my opinion! I love it when I'm not just being stared at, or often have them come up to me and ask if I need help. It was a great experience and all because that lady made it so with her words     The clients are another thing though, I was in line - the first one too - and I was waiting for someone to call me up so I could pay and this girl out of nowhere just gets in front of me ... and after a while she says "Oh I'm sorry, where you here first?"....no kidding, she did leave after I feel that I had the look of death on me. >_>   That aside, I love my sephora and its employees!

Sold Out Boscia Mask Duo.... What's going on?
Why do I keep seeing the Boscia mask duo only to have it tell me it's sold out? My friend wrote to Sephora asking if it was still in stock about two weeks ago and was told they no longer carried it and she should look at dif masks. If this is the case why is Sephora still putting up the products in the sale section? I've been stalking it for weeks! Has anyone had luck in purchasing this recently?

I wish there was a comparison tool.
Just like comparing cars or computers, I wish there was a side by side comparison tool for products on Sephora.  I want to line up and compare, rating, size, price and ingredients.  So often, I find myself bouncing around between products when trying to filter through choices and I get my options tangled.  At the moment, I've decided I need a toner in my life (a first).  So many options!

OnTrac?
With my last few shipments I noticed that Sephora started using OnTrac for rouge free three day shipping. I don't like the OnTrac online tracking system because it doesn't list an estimated delivery date. So how am I supposed to know if my package is.... on track?   If anyone has any advice on how to fix this, I would love to hear it.

Is it okay to use two different glamglow masks in a single week?
Let me just start off by saying that I absolutely love all of the Glamglow masks!   However, my two most favourite masks are the Supermud Clearing Treatment and the Powermud Dualcleanse Treatment.   Can anyone let me know if this is a good routine for both masks: I feel it would be very beneficial to have a clearing treatment and a deep cleanse in one regime. I was thinking of using the Supermud every Wednesday and the Powermud every Sunday... is this a good regime or is using both masks once a week too much for the skin? Let me know! All input is greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance!   Ps, my skin type is combination oily, acne prone, and dehydrated.

Annoyed
I love Sephora, and makeup and I don't mean to rant but this is annoying! Although I am only 16 I have spent over $650 at Sephora in the past year or so! And I find it intolerable when workers are rude or judgmental based on my age! I have been followed around the store and completely watched for my age to completely ignored for it! I have been given great service at Sephora, but recently it has become worse and I honestly don't know what I should do about it!

Special pricing for purchases of multiple Make Up For Ever eyeshadows?
Do we have any solid information as to whether there will be special pricing when buying bundles of the new MUFE Artist Shadows?   This is from Temptalia's recent post:   "If you buy two or more shades, plus the duo compact, it’s $34 ($17/each), and if you purchase three shades with the trio palette, it’s $44 ($14.67/each). The boutique said they were charging $14.33/each after 3."   This is no currently showing up, but she mentions in a reply to a comment that she was informed by MUFE that:    " When I asked MUFE about the discount not showing, they followed up and said it would be effective August 1st."   Is this accurate?

New Ole Henriksen Cleanser!
*Apologies if someone has posted about this already, I did a search but didn't see anything.   Just finished watching Caroline Hirons new video (I know she is a rather "polarizing" guru but that's besides the point!) and she mentioned as one of her recent skincare favorites the new Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Melting Cleanser. I hadn't even heard of this yet so I did a search and found it on Sephora's site! No reviews there yet so I wanted to come over to BT to see if any of you have seen/heard of/tried this yet!   It looks amazing, and I am a huge fan of the Pure Truth line in general. It's also not terribly expensive compared to some other cleansing balms (which this seems to be similar to).   http://www.sephora.com/pure-truth-tm-melting-clean ser-P388265   It has vitamin C, rose hip oil, and like the rest of his products no sulfates/parabens.   Thoughts??

Should I use a serum before my Ole Henriksen Invigorating night treatment?
I was told by a SA at Sephora that I don't need serum with this night treatment. She also recommend to put oil (OH pure truth activating oil I got in a value kit) before OH invigorating night treatment. I'm I wrong to think beauty oils must be put on face after serum/treatment?
