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!

What brands would you like to see at Sephora?
I'd really like to see Paul & Joe, Anna Sui, and Les Merveilleuses de Laduree at Sephora. I know that Sephora Champs Elysees has Les Merveilleuses as well as the Sephora across the street from Galleries Lafayette in Paris.

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.

Let's say, hypothetically, that I'm going to Japan and will be able to buy anything I want....... what would be something awesome to get that we don't have here? I know there's the Maison Laduree rose petal blush (I'm really hoping it's not as expensive there) and Guerlain Meteorites Aquarella, maybe? Anything else?   ps.

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??

Sephora vs. Ulta - The Verdict
I've been a VIB for a few years now, and my local Sephora is within walking distance of that "other" brand. I've heard rave reviews about their rewards program, most especially about their generous giving of free product with each new level reached and not samplers.   Today, I headed to my Sephora store for the VIB event, got my bag loaded up, and then...went to Ulta. I was actually there to get a tube of NYX lip gloss since I've heard so much about it, but I went through the whole store out of pure curiosity.   The verdict? While Ulta does carry drugstore brands and their rewards are pretty lofty in comparison...Sephora has my heart. Ulta felt too "superstore-ish". No offense, but a little...below...the standard and prestige of Sephora. So, Sephora, heed our call! Amp up our VIB rewards. Tidy up the shelves and demos in your stores (our store is a tad lacking in that dept.). And, keep up the great work! = )

Seriously. I went to a Sephora today, and asked for a sample of Josie Maran's Illuminator, and I got a tiny needle drop of it. What gives!      Actually, with all store made samples, they're pretty stingy. At least my Sephora is. What about yours?
