I'm sitting here with my soft plush blanket and warm cat on my lap feeling very happy it's getting chilly. Got me to thinking, what are some good fall/winter staples for fragrance, lotion, makeup...etc? Doesn't even have to be about beauty. Do you love peppermint mochas from Starbucks? Eager to make/eat a pumpkin roll?

I was very lucky and blessed to win the Clarisonic giveaway last week and I received the device kit yesterday in the morning!! Let me first say, Thank you Sephora and Clarisonic for this awesome giveaway!   I didn't expect Sephora would send me the kit this fast though.  (BTW, am I the first winner who got this??)  I couldn't move any faster to open the box. The device kit was much bigger than I thought it would be, plus a congratulation memo from Sephora .   I roughly went through the manual first and learned that I have to charge the device for 24 hours prior to the first use. So I charged it and tried it today. I think I've never been excited to go home and wash my face . Who knew I would be this excited to take off my make up, lol.  As soon as I came home, I ran straight to my bathroom and used the device. And you know what? It's AMAZING!   I've been using Neutrogena Microdermabraison system over a year. And it's the only cleansing device I've ever tried. I heard a lot of good things about Clarisonic, but I never reached out for one because of its price tag. I'm more of a makeup girl and I don't spend my fortune for skincare. I was quite happy with my Neutrogena system and would've been forever happy with it only if I didn't know how good Clarisonic is!!   As I'm entering my late 20's, I've noticed that my pores are getting bigger and I spotted more blackheads on my nose. These were the reasons I bought the Neutrogena system at the first place. But holly molly! Clarisonic is so much softer and moisturizing(?) and also doesn't leave me the tingly or itchy feelings and redness on my face that Neutrogena always gave me.   I think it's the brush that makes the biggest difference. The Clarisonic brush is so soft compared to the Neutrogena pad (not brush). The pad has a bit of sand feeling on the surface (Feels like a scrub that has really big particles in it). And I don't get how it could even moisturize my face. I guess moisturizing is not really a proper term here, but I actually feel like my face is very moistened after using it without any noticeable redness on my cheeks and forehead. Every time I used Neutrogena, my face turned quite red for a few hours, but Clarisonic didn't make my cheeks that red at all! My face is very smooth and feels like baby skin now. I can't stop rubbing my cheeks (perv alert!).    I also have to mention how nice the device stand is. The stand makes easy to place the device. And the charger is magnetic. These are just little something, but very nice little something . Overall I think this device is so worth the money and deserves a good review.   I was actually ready to criticize this product before using it. I didn't want to be all so nice because I got it free. Yet I'm only telling you guys how good it is because I can't literally think of any con right now. (I used it only for once. I'm not sure if I'll find some cons in the future.)   If I knew Clarisonic is this great, I would've bought one with my own money a long time ago. I'm wondering how Smart profile is different from previous models though. Anyway I'm seriously so thankful for this giveaway to let me have this wonderful device in my life! What a beautiful night for me!!   *I didn't mean to write this long.. but I had so much to tell you guys!! lol

My daughter starting to like make-up and I'm not the type of wearing make up and can't teach her much. I just don't want her to put too much or wrong make up for her face also it could be a nice gift for her birthday. Is it ok to make an appointment with a beauty advisor at Sephora, she is 12.  Is is too young, too soon to make an appointment with a beauty advisor for her at sephora? What about the classes? Thanks

I visit my local Sephora every couple weeks and always loved that whenever I purchased something I could spend my Beauty Insider points to get a sample of something along with my purchase. But starting a couple months ago I went into Sephora and although I was told "you have xx points" at the register, I was never once asked if I wanted to spend my points or anything. I have since gone to 2 different Sephora's in different cities (moved across the country) and I now have over 1000 points but still have not been encouraged nor even asked to spend my points (when they used to always do that). I honestly see no point in shopping in the actual stores anymore if this is now the policy. I'll come in to the store to swatch shades, but I may as well order online and get a better selection of products, free samples, and actually be able to use my points.   So I'm just wondering has this happened to anyone else? Is this a new policy of not asking people to spend their points? It's not exactly encouraging people to try to new products...

I use Tweezerman tweezers, I buy at Bed, bath and Beyond with a coupon.  I find myself having to buy a new pair every couple years as they don't seem to pull as precisely as they used to.    Anyone use an awesome pair of tweezers that grab and pull on the first try?  I'm talking on like the first inclination of a hair sprouting?  I'm open to all price points.

I know some of us are waiting for the big sale before we start purchasing holiday sets but I also know some of us have already purchased a few. Which holiday sets have you guys already purchased this year and what are your thoughts on them?    So far the only thing I've gotten is the Tarte Chic to Cheek blush set. I am completely obsessed with the four mini blushes and really just needed some new blush in my life. The shades in the set are exactly the types of blushes I gravitate towards and I just couldn't resist.

Other than Korres, does anyone have suggestions on other brands that carry silicone-free moisturizers? I'm starting to think that I may be sensitive to this..and it's in everything!

Hi, so, Christmas is just around the corner and I want to buy my mum a really nice gift. I have $40 to spend on her. She's a person that likes more of the natural tone kind of makeup. So, if you have any ideas of what I should get her, then that would be really great! Thank you!

I really love how shopping at Sephora can be a totally self service yet customized experience with the custom samples, Skin IQ and the Pantone color matching. I remember there used to be a feature on the sephora website where you could do advanced searches for fragrances by notes, like woodsy or floral (I think it was fragrance finder). Now that they have the fragrance IQ quiz in stores I think it would be great if they made the same quiz available online! It would be so enabling for me!

I made two purchases in a local sephora retail store in the past month but have not seen them showing on my beauty insider points. I showed my beauty insider card every time I made the purchase. How long would it take to have those posted on my online account?

I visited a Sephora store in Calgary today (specifically the Core Shopping Centre - downtown). I was looking for the Canadian line Cake Beauty which I had previously purchased from that location.    A sales associate told me that they no longer carry the line in the store. Is this only for this particular store, or is it not being sold in an Sephora Canada store anymore?

Anyone here uses Perricone MD Chloro Plasma? I think I'm really loving it, but I'm not sure if it's the hype or if it's really working. The good thing is it's available in .5oz so I can give it a good go without splurging for the full size *cough* white glamglow *cough*......   ....speaking of which, I've also heard some ppl have problem of the GlamGlow harden before they were able to finish it, eventho you supposedly can just add water to it.....anyone had that problem?

I'm looking for a good, self-tanner that's long lasting and natural looking. I've tried St. Tropez, Tarte and Fake Bake. While I do like them all, I found a problem that they'd all turn the back of my hands almost orange looking. Am I doing something wrong or just not using the right product?

So, of course I'm going, but is there any reason I should go early? Are there any special buys associated with grand openings? I know about the gwp makeup bag. Tomorrow is a province-wide teacher conference, so no school tomorrow, which means a lot of girls will be there (smart Sephora!) I also happen to have the day off.   If I go first thing, should I get there before opening... Will there be a lineup? I'm only a 5 minute drive away

For anyone who has the UD Full Frontal Lipstick Stash - can you confirm whether the box is reusable? I like to re-use boxes from gift sets to store makeup and I've heard there were some problems with the foam insert not coming unstuck from this one.
