Is the Beauty Blender worth it? I'm considering purchasing but I do not know if it's worth my investment. Have any of you tried the liquid cleanser also?

Hello, I got a brand new Smart profile brush as a gift, but the back is a bit different from the one showed on the website, it has the Smart profile stamp up ahead but the Clarisonic logo is all the way down to the end of the brush while on the website it's placed up ahead the Smart Profile writing. How is yours?

I bought a BB cream at Sephora a while ago, but I don't really know how to apply it so I want to go back and get a mini-makeover so they can teach me how to use it. Can someone tell me how the mini-makeover thing works? Do you just walk up to any SA and ask them? And what would you ask them if you wanted them to do your face makeup for you with BB cream?

So I just went to sephora in Nashville and tried. Some nars matte foundation (discontinuing this.) my shade was monte blanc and it was the perfect match lasted great on my skin! I'm just wondering what shade I should use for under eye concealer, I'll being the nars creamy one. I know it will be either the 1st or 2nd shade. I really just want to highlight with it. Suggestions are appreciated since I won't be near a sephora for a while!

... And why aren't you waiting until they're an extra 20% off??   I keep adding these things to my cart, but they keep selling out on me, because I want to wait for the extra20 promo. Guess I'm just a cheapskate, lol.

Hello! My brother wants some shower gel for xmas. I thought I would have lots of options on sephora.com... but it's somewhat limited. Also, I'm not familiar with men's products. Do you guys have a good shower gel to recommend? Or any gift idea for a guy?   Thanks!

I would love sephora to bring out a monthly subscription box with all new product samples

I just saw the new perfume which I love! How ever I am trying to avoid particular ingredients such as Petroleum. Does anyone know the ingredients? The page does not have it posted which is a bummer.

I lost the receipt for my recent purchase of the Naked 2 Palette, and after using it for barely a week one of the shade COMPLETELY chipped off and is everywhere over the palette. Unfortunately, I lost my receipt for it and I wanted to exchange for another palette. Is there anyway I could make a return without a receipt?

I'm currently using the Olay Pro X face cleansing brush because it was only $15 on sale. I've wanted a Clarisonic for the longest time but can't settle on one. I've been on the edge of getting one for months. But I also don't want to buy one and it be the same quality as my Olay.   Is the Clarisonic better than the Olay? Is it worth the splurge? /.\ I can't decide and I've done so much research over the last few months!

I have always loved the idea of face masks since I was a girl, but only experienced good ones from the free samples on here. So what do you guys think? What's the best on here to buy? Oh and this is random, but I've been trying birchbox, and I'm not sure if I like it or not. Any opinions or experiences with birchbox? I'm not trying to advertise it, I'm really not sure if I like it. This one I got I only liked one or two things. And I get so many freebies on here....

I have read every article on how to treat, shampoo, condition, etc.. bleached platinum blonde hair and am now lost in a sea of products. I have processed my short hair twice in the last 4 or 5 months. While I am lucky that my hair is fairly healthy, it is obvious that the ends of my hair have weakened (I notice tiny white/blonde hairs on my shirt after I blow dry and style). So there is definite breakage going on. I really want Davines products but they have to be ordered online and so on.. Need something pronto before my cool beige hair loses its coolness before Christmas.

Okay, we all know there's room for improvement in the features department of BT. So given that none of us actually have the power to change anything, how do you keep track of things? I used to think I was just too much of a newb to understand the ins and outs of BT, but now that I've been here for a while, I realize that nothing has really changed and it still feels like a bit of a clusterF to keep track of responses and comments/mentions intended for a specific user.     Do you subscribe to threads? Do you track responses to your own posts through your list of activity in your profile? Do you just rely on PMs?    What's your method to the madness?

Hello, I got a Luxe Cashemere brush as a gift, but I'm suspecting it could be a fake, cause in the other Clarisonic brushes i own there are a clock icon and a number in the center on the back of the brush, while on this, I can't see any clock symbol and the number is on the outern circle and not in the center. Since this is the first Luxe brush I got, I can't compare it, so can you help me and check out yours?thanks so much

So I bought two items recently on the American Sephora website and used the $15 off when you spend $50 coupon discount thingy that was emailed to beauty insiders. I'm wondering if I'll be able to exchange one item in a Canadian Sephora (in stores) for another item of the exact price without paying anything extra, even though both products are a few dollars more expensive in Canada (in the US, both items are $32, but in Canada, the same items are C$38) and I used the $15 off coupon.   Basically wondering if I can make a dollar for dollar exchange without paying extra (since they're both the same price, but one was bought at a cheaper price from the US) or any added complications.    If it helps the product that I have is the Benefit How To Look The Best At Everything (which, again, was bought on the US Sephora website for $32), and the product I want to exchange it with is the Benefit Primping With The Stars ($32 in the US, $38 in Canada).   Thanks!

I received my samples from GlamGlow yesterday and was really itching to try the cleanser. I just used the Thirsty Cleanse so I wanted to share what I think.    First of all I must say that I absolutely HATE the Thirsty Mud Mask. I cannot stand the smell. This cleanser doesn't small as strong (and since I only had it on for a short time and than washed it off that makes a difference).   The way you use this cleanser is that you apply it directly to your dry face, massage it in, and add a bit of water for it to emulsify. You massage that it and than wash your face completely. I don't really like some of the cleansers out there that have this method because I feel like I have to rub my face raw to get it to turn the way it's supposed to. But this one is much faster. It works very quickly.    After I washed it off my skin does feel very refreshed and hydrated. I actually really like the way it feels and I bet after using this sample I would totally buy the full size. I can't give a true "review" since this was just a 1 foil sample I was sent (they also sent me 1 packet of Super Cleanse but I will pass that to a friend).    I just thought I'd share my humble first thoughts on this product

Hey guy's! Do you think either 1 of these would be safe for me to use at night being I am using the Clinique Redness Line know?   I was thinking on rotating this w/ the Redness Solutions Moisturizer at night b/c I have to treat wrinkles too (sad eye's, lol).   I used to use the Turnaround Radiance for years, but when I ran out I got the NUDE sleeping mask. Friend to avoid triggers but still treat lines, wrinkles, scars, and get some good yet gentle skin cell turnover going on here .   Which do you guy's think would be best / & or do u think it would be cool at all being I am using the redness line?   Thanks!

Ive been eyeing the korres greek yoghurt line for my very sensitive acne prone skin. I saw the 3 in 1 cleansing and toning wash and then there is a travel set which comes with the creamy face wash. However, I dont see a full size  creamy face wash listed anywhere as a full size. Is the creamy wash the same thing as the 3 in 1 cleansing and toning wash? Im trying to figure out whether to get the trial set or to go with the full sizes seperately. Thanks for the help!

I know a lot of people have this problem. It's those hideous, hellacious, annoying "11's"!! I can see them forming and it's not attractive! Sometimes, if I'm in pain and am squishing my forehead, my Mother will actually Smack Me right between the eyes! Shocking, but it does help remind me to try to relax that area. Headaches also cause the pain/squishy/squinty "11" making things - and I try to massage that area & through the brow bone area very lightly, sometimes it helps it feel better.   Anyone have some ideas about what works best alone and under makeup (likely 2 different products) I don't want to spend an insane amount of $$,.Hopefully I'll get lucky and keep it under $100.00 or find it in a kit where I can try other products as well. Any suggestions are welcome and appreciated. If I'm really lucky, maybe I can find a company that would supply some generous samples. Cause 2015 is gonna be a sad, less Sephora year. (and less Nordies, Macy's etc. etc.)   How about those "Frownies"? Anyone have any experience with them? Do they do anything and how do they actually work? Thanks everyone. Strange..... I keep hearing the Toys-R-Us theme......"I don't wanna grow up......."

I don't know if this has ever been suggested before (I'm fairly new here) but I really respect a lot of the BT recommendations (such as this post: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Antiaging/Needles- No-More/td-p/1819451) and wish there was a section on the forum dedicated to them or with links to them. Considering Sephora invests the time and money to ship these products out to reviewers, I think it would only benefit them to have links on their main page to such reviews. Because the reviews are coming from BTers, I consider them really honest feedback and a true reflection from users who have a lot of expert knowledge and history with makeup and beauty.

Today I noticed two products where it is actually cheaper to buy the smaller product size than the larger version. Normally the more you buy the more you save, but I wonder if I am missing something? ( Canadian Prices ) Is this to get rid of old packaging or is it simply the way they are priced?   1st is Fab Radiance Pads. • 28 for $14 = $0.50/pad • 60 for $37 = $0.61/pad   2nd is Miracle Worker by Philosophy • 0.5 oz for $5 = $10/ounce • 2.0 oz for $74 = $37/ounce

I's my first time on here and I'm wondering if any of you can help me choose a skin care gift set for my mom.She is looking for something that will reaffirm her skin. What do you guys recommend?

Use them?  Burn them?  Gift them?  Return them? I tend to try to force myself to use up products that just don't work for me, whether it's a bad lip shade, a sad tube of mascara, or even a foil I just don't like.  I was thinking the other day that I should probably learn to toss things and move on, since I have plenty of things around that I love and should get my attention! How do you handle it when you try a product and you aren't impressed?  Does it vary based on where you bought it or how much you paid?  I'd love to see how others think about this!

Will Sephora be adding more foundation choices for the different Skin IQ numbers? The results I get are more high end and doesn't cover foundations from brands like MakeUp Forever and Bare Minerals, which I would be more interested in.   I got a number of 1R06.
