I see that lots of others have had the same trouble with missing samples. I hardly ever shop at the Sephora store just because they never have any samples at all. :-( So I order online especially to try out new things. Some of my favorites have been discoveries I've made only because of samples, e.g., Dior Addict Fluid Stick in Aventure: Once I tried the sample, I couldn't wait to buy it! (I actually got it at the store, because I couldn't wait!) So it is just so, so disappointing when I don't get the samples along with my order. It happened again today. I tore apart all the packaging and the paper filler and everything, just couldn't believe my Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation sample wasn't in there, especially since it is listed on the packing slip. But it's not there. I could understand if they ran out of a particular sample and replaced it with something else, but that's not the case. This is not the first time it's happened, either. I've always felt like, well, it's a freebie, I shouldn't complain, but now it's happened again and I do feel like it shouldn't be offered if it's not going to be fulfilled. My customer experience: Not So Good.
UGH--so busy today and didn't get a chance to check out the sale section today There was a huge markdown on the Tarte cheek stain set and the MUFE set but it looks like its out of stock already! Still--lots of other goodies at great prices there! Lots off OCC and the some Smashbox LE items
I have oily skin, but I am fond of the dewy glowing look! Not the oily shining look! I want to know exactly how I can create this look? I know I need to do strong oil control at skin care and base, so that I can use a dewy/glowy foundation. But I see on Korean girls, even before makeup their skin is SUPER glowing. How can I get that??? I was trying to attach a photo but somehow I can't I'll figure how to attach a photo. Pls advise me how oily skin can get glowing dewy skin without the oily shine!!!! thank you!!!!
I have my face under control I use dr. dennis gross extra strength peel regularly and then put my proactive step 3 on after that before bed and this keeps my face clear but i always end up with pimples in my hairline and farther back into my scalp!! It's extremely irritating and I have thin hair especially towards my face so sometimes they are noticeable...Does anyone have any suggestions for something that could help this? Shampoo/Conditioner combo or some skincare that wouldn't grease/ruin my hair???
I have a lot of blackheads/whiteheads and have small breakouts often, so I usually lay on a ton of makeup. I want to move towards improving my skin so its healthy and glowy and fresh so I can pare down to a really simple makeup routine. Should I switch to a BB or CC cream in lieu of foundation? Or try natural products? Or invest in one of those expensive skin cleanser brushes? I don't know where to start.
hello i was thinking of getting the clarisonic opel does anyone have it and does it really work? Read a lot of good and bad reviews about it, so before i spend that much money i would like know from you beauty ladies your opion please thank you.
I have suffered with kp for years since junior high on my legs. It causes breakouts and scabs to occur. After they heal, I am left with black spots/scars on my legs. I also have this problem on my buttocks. Do you have any suggestions on how to fade these scars/spots?
i have a great night moisturizer from peter ? and am looking for something during the day (in morning before makeup), the studies on this look incredible , all high 90s on improvement - i have had luck with his peters facial wash and also night cream, so i thought this might be good to try, but its a hefty investment and i wanna be sure i understand what it is, what it does, and if it will help me first 2 questions 1) does this have any harsh chemicals i need to be worried about? would it leave any redness or effects? 2) do i need to put on another moisturizer after or does this product "regenerate" and also moisturize?? i am 34, main goal is to prevent wrinkles, nothing so bad yet. also my face on cheeks can be a bit blotchy with redness but its mild-moderate and doesnt bother me too much
I am looking for some skin care products to help with my dry, sensitive skin (I have eczema). I am also prone to blocked pores if the formula is to thick and doesn't absorb well. I have my daytime moisturizer with SPF squared away, so this would be more for nighttime/weekend use. I tried the High Potency Night-A-Mins™ Mineral-Enriched Renewal and it didn't work for me. My skin never got moisturized, but would end up greasy and has started breaking out. Any advice is greatly appreciated!
Does anyone have any suggestions for a great dark circle skincare product or cover up?? I have fair skin and very noticeable blue/purple dark circles under my eyes. To make it worse I have a face full of freckles, which I do love, but if I try and use concealer on my dark circles it draws more attention to the area because it becomes the one non freckly place on my face. Any suggestions? Thank you!
I am 45 years old and have fought oily skin, hormonal breakouts and large pores all my life. In the last few years I have tried OH and Clinque 3 step for oily skin but neither has helped me, I have been using a Mia for about 2 months and it has helped some but not as much as I had hoped. Does anyone have any other suggestions of products to use. So here is my routine so no confusion.. Mia 1 x daily AM Clinque 3 step cleanser, toner and moisterizing gel Hourglass primer Clinque Mat foundation or KVD foundation or BMinerals Still have to blot about two hours after makeup. Ugggh frustrating to say the least. Please help!
I am going on vacation in October and I plan on doing some serious make-up shopping. I would love to hear some suggestions on products to try. I love a glowy look and I love color. I have tried such brands as Urban decay,Kat Von D,Anastasia of beverly hills,Too Faced,etc. I am looking to buy foundation,primer,mascara,lipstick,lip liner,eye liner and skin care products.
I am suffering from wrinkles and rough skin problems. My friends suggested me to use equinox skin care cream by sheridan labs. I have read some scams and some complaints but there are some positive reviews also. Now I am confused, is there anyone who suggests me about it?? Scam or not?
Anyone have/used the PETER THOMAS ROTH 21st birthday set. I'm up in the air to use it. Want to get some feedback. I have oily acne prone skin - medium tan. Please leave a comment if you have it!!! thanks !!
I am looking for a wonderful face primer to put on before my foundation routine. I have oily to combination skin...very large pores on my cheeks by my nose (I need a primer that will shrink those) and I am acne-breakout prone. I have tried porefessional, it it breaks me out every time. Any recommendations on a lightweight primer that won't clog my skin but will also help mattify my skin throughout the day and will make my skin look glowy? Thanks!
I am 24 years old and beginning to think a lot more about preventing the signs of aging on my face. I essentially have two questions: What moisturizers do you recommend and in what order should I apply it with my other products? I am interested in an anti-aging serum that is thin enough to use under makeup but won't make me oily. I use a regular moisturizer and cc cream. If I use a moisturizing serum, is it necessary to use another moisturizer or will this replace it? I do usually use an anti aging lotion at night (that's too thick and oily looking for day) and a moisture mask a few days a week. During the day, I use a thin sunscreen (that I'm thinking of ditching because of the texture), a tiny bit of moisturizer, a primer, cc cream, and then a tad of powder if I am going out on a date or something. Does this sound like the right order?

There are 2 sets online - one for $19 CAD with two shades (coral and honey) and one for $34 CAD with 4 shades, including a new one watermelon - which you can't get outside of this set. I have 4 shades and the 4 set one only has one of the colours I don't have. The reviews for the 4 set both say the tubes are really tiny but comparable in price to the large tubes. http://www.sephora.com/love-that-flush-argan-infin ity-lip-cheek-creamy-oil-set-P388639?skuId=1627074 http://www.sephora.com/argan-infinity-lip-cheek-cr eamy-oil-duo-P388933?skuId=1627066
Hello BT! I went to my dermatologist and she prescribed me with Tretinoin 0.025% for night time, and 5% BP topical gel with clindamycin lotion for the morning. She said that I have combination acne (red bumps, white heads and cysts). Also, she mentioned to use oil free, non comedogenic products and a gentle facial cleanser. I plan on continuing my use with Cetaphil gentle facial cleanser but was wondering if there were products that you could recommend me trying as a new moisturizer since my Olay is not oil free. Also, any other products that you could suggest would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Hello friends! I am always curious to know what people's skincare regimes are; how can a skincare fanatic not want to see what other people are using! My skin is very strange, it is combination (very) oily, dehydrated, and acne prone along with reactive to various products. Without further ado, here is my current skincare routine! Morning: Cleanse - Fresh Soy Face Cleanser Tone - FAB Facial Radiance Pads Hydratation Tone - 100% Pure Rose Water Serum - Peter Thomas Roth Viz 1000 Hydrating Serum Moisturize - Fresh Rose Hydrating Gel Eye Cream - Fresh Lotus Eye Gel Night: Cleanse - Fresh Soy Face Cleanser Tone - FAB Facial Radiance Pads Hydratation Tone - 100% Pure Rose Water Treat - Kielhs Midnight Recovery Concentrate ** My nose is very breakout prone, so I do not apply any product to it during the day and use a prescription topical acne medication on it every night to stop the clogged pores ** Lips - Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm Specific Days SUNDAY Shave Exfoliate - Clinique Face Scrub (Mens line) TUESDAY Glamglow Supermud Mask WEDNESDAY Shave SATURDAY Glamglow Powermud Mask And there you have it! My wonderful, yet crazy, skincare regime! I am EXTREMELY interested in seeing what your skincare regime is as I am new to the Advice Talks! I definitely look forward to seeing the different combinations of products and also looking to see what other products I could potentially use! I love Skincare! It's the best! Michael, xo
I have acne, majority of the time, on my chin and around my mouth area and throughout the day I get an oily t-zone. It seems even if I do not pick a pimple it still leaves hyper-pigmentation, I have a lot of that. Could anyone recommend a whole new skin care routine that suits my needs? Greatly appreciated (I have used Murad, Clinque, and Ren T-Zone control cleansing gel before and all were unsuccessful)
Alright ladies, lets hear it...I am not too keen on spending $70 on a mask I am not sure will work for me. What are your reviews on the Glamglow superclearing (white) mask/treatment?? I have blackheads that need to be cleared, acne-prone skin, with the occasional hormonal breakout & my skin is also oily-combination. I have heard RAVE reviews and so-so reviews. HELP!
I have oily, acne-prone skin with some dark acne scars along the cheeks. Between FAB's Face Cleanser, Boscia's Detox Black Cleanser and Murad's Face Cleanser, which is best? Or is there something better?
