Posting this with disbelief that I bought a T3 blower dry 2 years ago and it blew up after about 1 1/2 years. Literally popped and blew up. Brought the first T3 blow dryer back to Sephora and they replaced it as they should when you pay $250 for a blow dryer!! New blow dry owned about 1 1/2 years again and I can't believe it the same thing blew up to the point that my dog in the adjacent room starting barking. This is crazy and totally unsafe!!! What's even more frustrating is that Sephora wouldn't return it and instead rejected the return and had me talking to TRE Customer Service who does nothing for you other than tell you to send a written problem statement that needs to be sent in writing via US Postal Mail. So disappointing and really mail in this day and age??? I'm on a website buying products but instead I need to dispute a $250 blow dryer blowing up by calling a customer support line and then getting an email that tells me to send a written response. Shame on you Sephora!!!! You should support your products and not make it tough on the consumer especially when T3 clearly is a faulty product.

For those who don't know what this is, it stands for Korean Beauty! Honestly, I'm surprised I don't see even more stuff posted about K-Beauty as it seems to be taking over right now. I hear nothing but good things about their skincare, makeup, etc! I recently got the Amorepacific cream as a 100 point perk and am really liking it for daytime moisture (although I think it may be better in the summer as I still feel a tad dry), and I hear good things about the Chosungah22 products which Sephora carries! I also recently made a giant order through a Korean retailer called Jolse, can't wait to get my stuff! Do you guys love K-Beauty? Do you have any reviews of stuff you've tried? I'm hoping to get this moving and that people will post in here regularly about skincare and cosmetics from Korea!

I hope that this is the right place to post this question. I have decided that I want/need a lighted vanity mirror. I have narrowed it down to the simplehuman 5X sensor mirror and the iHome 1X/7X dual sided Bluetooth mirror. It seems like the simplehuman mirror is most popular and best rated (not by too much depending where you look) and the lighting is brighter. The iHome one has a regular mirror and a magnified side, which I like that I can switch back and forth. The Bluetooth feature is nice, but not a big deal to me. The one downside of this mirror is the lighting isn't as bright. Or maybe it isn't such a big deal. I don't live near a store that carries either, so I don't know how bright the lights are or not. I'm just going by the Brightness specifications online. Can you help me choose? Which one do you like better?
In OLE HENRIKSEN no longer making the Grease Relief Cleansing Cloths? These are the wipes in the green pack. They have disappeared on Sephora and the OLE HENRIKSEN website. Is Truth on the Glow a good substitute? I love these wipes and now I cannot find unless I pay double or more on Amazon.ca.
I have dark circles under my eyes that need to go away. I'm not sure why I have them since I get enough sleep and none of my family members have intense dark circles. What eye cream(s) would you recommend? I'm 23 and I don't have wrinkles nor puffy bags under my eyes. I just need something for the dark circles. Any help is appreciated!!

I'm torn between the becca highlighter in champagne pop and the ABH glow kit in sun dipped. $40 for a whole palette seems like a better deal than $38 for one color, but I have heard great things about champagne pop. Any opinions?
I know many have noticed lately that Sephora has fallen off the wagon in regards to samples. In a major way. Today I received yet another order without the samples I requested. So I wondered, exactly how bad has it gotten? Since Nov. 6th I have placed 12 orders. That's 36 requested samples. Of that 36 I have received 11. Sometimes the samples were substitutions. Other times there have been no samples at all. Now, Sephora can claim that they disclose that "substitutions will be made for out of stock samples". All very well and good, but I have been a customer for over a decade. This recent sample fiasco has caught my attention because up until now I have received the requested samples nearly 100% of the time. I am also not stupid enough to think Sephora didn't see/anticpate a problem with the samples and thus removed requested sample listings from the invoices. (This is fairly recent.) So Sephora, why are you still letting us think we get to pick our samples when in fact we do not? Why is a sample I requested not being delivered with my order but still showing up days later as an available sample? (* cough* Sephora Collection Express Eye Makeup Remover Wipes *cough* Maison Margiela Lipstick On *cough) I realize a free sample isn't something to get my undies in a bundle about... Generally speaking anyway, which is why I haven't said much over the past few months. Some of us though, live in smaller areas where brands like Maison Margiela aren't in store and we place an order specifically for that sample. When we don't receive it, it's a disappointment. When it happens over and over and over again over a period of months... well one starts to think you're either lying or you really need to get your #%$@ together.
I'd like to hear some recommendations for a VEGAN face wash that you use that is similar to Philosophy's Purity: not a milk or oil cleanser, not foaming, but somewhere in-between like Purity, that doesn't dry out your skin but still cleanses well. Thank you!
I'm 29 years old with combination skin. I cleanse, moisturize, and use a lightweight serum daily. My skin is healthy and looks great bare, but as soon as I apply foundation, concealer, or even a BB cream, I suddenly have fine lines everywhere! They're especially bad around my eyes. It's incredibly frustrating because it makes me appear much older than I am. I don't even use full coverage products, just light coverage to even out my skin tone and give me a healthy glow. Could someone please recommend a primer that helps minimize fine lines? I'm not looking for an anti-aging product since they tend to have very harsh ingredients in them that my skin just doesn't need yet. I just want something that will fill in those fine lines, not settle into them.
Just looking for a new face oil and noticed the Bobbi Brown Extra face oil is priced strangely on the Canadian website. It is $30 for 15ml or $82 for 30 ml. It doesn't make sense. No one would buy the larger bottle if they could get two smaller bottles for $22 less and the same amount of product. Not to mention, the smaller bottle comes with a convenient dropper, but the larger bottle looks really messy?
I didn't see a thread started and we are already a week in to February! If someone did start a thread, I apologize! But I definitely have some favorites from the start of 2017 that I'm a little obsessed with going in to February. Atelier Cologne: The 31 Days of Perfume challenge got me really excited about a few I already have in my collection and a few I've added, and Atelier keeps delivering for me. I keep picking up samples of others in this brand haven't grown tired of my favorites, like I have with others. Kat Von D ELL Lolita 2: I think I reached for this the most during the month of January. The color is just perfect for me, and the staying power and wear is the best I've found, in her line and others. Laura Geller GlamLASH Masacra: I picked up a couple of these during the big LG sale in December, and wore it almost daily in January. It just works for my lashes, I love it. Fresh Sugar : Lip balm addict, I keep going back to this one.
I'm a long term skincare addict, so I was super excited to try the pillowcase, cleanser and sheet masks from the newest brand Sephora carries--Skin Laundry. Thanks for the package, Sephora! I've never heard of Skin Laundry before this. Apparently it originates from LA based spa that is inspired by laser&light facials. It focuses on gentle but effective products with simple ingredients. Sleepcycle Pillowcase It is a queen sized, 100% cotton pillowcase with 300 threadcount and charged with silver ion technology. There are scientific studies shown that colloidal gold is antiaging and copper peptides help with collagen production, so I'm not surprised that silver is antibacterial, which is great for acne-prone skin (especially if you are a side sleeper). I tried a copper infused eyemask before but couldn't stand the metallic scent, but this pillowcase has no scent. It looks like a normal white pillowcase, very soft and smooth. I rarely get blemish so unfortunately I can't attest to that aspect. It says to wash every 7-10 days and the antibacterial effect of silver ion technology should last 50 washes, so it should be effective for about a year. Because the oil and stuff on your face get smeared on the pillowcase, I usually flip to the other/clean side after 3-4 days of use, then wash after another 3-4 days. So far, it's been a very soft and comfy pillowcase to me. Gentle Foaming Face Wash This gentle cleanser aims to be gentle but effective, and it delivers. It's a clear gel with a very mild clean scent. It lathers a little but does not foam. It feels comfortable on the skin and rinses off cleanly. It leaves the skin feeling clean, but not drying or moisturizing. Ingredients-wise, its a very basic cleanser with chamomile and cucumber to soothe, shea butter/glycerin/panthenol (a form of vit B that attracts moisture) to moisturize.It's great for all skin types, including sensitive. If you are looking for a cleanser that focuses on oil control or breakouts for oily skin, or one that focuses on moisturizing for dry skin, then this is not it. It is good basic cleanser with good simple ingredients, reasonably priced at $20. Hydrating Facial Sheet Masks! Finally, my favorite part! I've tried over 100 different sheet masks, mostly Korean ones, so I'm quite excited to try this. The sheet mask is a piece of folded cloth soaked in a white milky serum with no scent. The sheet feels more cloth-like than the paper/fiber cloth sheet that most sheet masks are made of which means it's sturdy with no risk of being torn and easy to unfold, but it also doesn't adheres to the skin as closely.The serum feels cool and comfortable on the skin. If you use it when your skin is irritated or sensitive, there may be a tingling sensation for a few seconds and that's all. The serum leaves the skin feel moisturized but clean, no stuffy feeling or greasy residue at all. My skin definitely feels refreshed and moisturized. If you have oily skin you may not need a moisturizer afterward, but if you have dry skin then I'd recommend using a moisturizer to seal the good stuff in after the essence absorbs. There is ~1-2 Sephora sample jar's amount of serum left in the packet after taking the mask out. You can massage it onto neck/chest while wearing the mask, or save it to use as serum for next day as well. I would not recommend trying to reuse/rehydrate the sheet mask with it eventho the sheet is sturdy, because there's not enough serum for the sheet to absorb and you won't get an even application. If you want to wash it and soak it in ~.5oz of your other essence for a DIY sheet mask, I won't stop you. The ingredients for the sheet mask are fantastic. No junk like fragrance or paraben but plenty of good stuff. It's got Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Niacinamide, Squalane and hyaluronic acid to moisturize/strengthen the skin as well as various plant extracts for brightening/antiaging. Spoiler (Highlight to read) The ingredients weren't very readable in the picture, so here's the ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam Seed Oil), Citrullus Vulgaris (Watermelon), Lens Esculenta (Lentil) Fruit Extract, Lens Esculenta (Lentil) Seed Extract, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Niacinamide, Squalane, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Sodium Lactate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium PCA, Cetearyl Alcohol, Dimethicone, Potassium Cetyl Phosphate, Disodium EDTA, Sodium Hydroxide, Carbomer, Hexylene Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol. Picture of it on my face, it does stick to the face, but doesn't adheres as close to the skin as possible: The ingredients weren't very readable in the picture, so here's the ingredients:Water, Glycerin, Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam Seed Oil), Citrullus Vulgaris (Watermelon), Lens Esculenta (Lentil) Fruit Extract, Lens Esculenta (Lentil) Seed Extract, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Niacinamide, Squalane, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Sodium Lactate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium PCA, Cetearyl Alcohol, Dimethicone, Potassium Cetyl Phosphate, Disodium EDTA, Sodium Hydroxide, Carbomer, Hexylene Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol.Picture of it on my face, it does stick to the face, but doesn't adheres as close to the skin as possible: The sheet masks are $10 each. It's got great ingredients and if the sheet adheres more closely to the skin, then I'd say it's perfect. I do like the serum/essence very much, but I like the sheet from Karuna and When masks better. Often times brands fill their product with junk trying to look fancy, or hike up the price for being all natural. Skin Laundry has pretty simple ingredients lists filled with good stuff and appropriately/reasonably priced. My combination skin enjoys it very much. Thank you Sephora/BeautyTalk for the opportunity to give this brand a try! Skin Laundry: http://www.sephora.com/skin-laundry?node=1050055
I'm actually BEYOND gutted I missed out on this traincase I had to wait until payday to buy it on the site, but it apparently sold out the DAY BEFORE I was set to purchase it ! Lol just my luck... Does anyone know where I could find something similar? Or if someone is wanting to sell theirs? I really had my heart set on it Tbh, anything glittery or holographic would be nice !
I just got the most beautiful box filled with Skin Laundry products from Sephora as a gift to try. I am so very excited to try. Anyone got their hands on these babies and want to share their experiences yet? As an acne-prone person who battled with acne all my life, I cannot wait to try these. They read that they are gentle which is really important to not piss my skin off further
