My order was cancelled and I was told I violated policy!!!!
I made an order from sephora.com. At some point, my order has cancelled. Sephora sent an  email to spend more money to keep my status. So I did!! I found a very popular lipstick which I used to pay very high price on eBay because it is always out of stock. So I bought many , I think that's why the order has cancelled. So I talked to CS and one guy told me I am fine to make order from online. However my order has cancelled again. And the other agent said I can't make order through online anymore because I violated their policy but she doesn't know which policy I violated. Don't tell me "call Sephora CS". They are very unhelpful and didn't want to help me. She seems very annoyed about my issue and it was very unpleasent experience. I am asian, and may not good at English, but I live in USA and I am a good buyer. I don't have time to go to shop. Please tell me how to fix this issue. And don't tell me call Sephora. The agent told me I will have the same answer anyway. Is it true?

skincare help! smooth skin and glow
I am currently trying to figure out how i get that smooth hydrated skin ive been wanting forever!  I cant seem to figure out exactly what products to use or what issues my skin is having..... I seem to have combination skin but more on the dry side (for example i have been wearing makeup all day and only a little oil shows on an oil blotting sheet).... my dry areas consist of around my nose,chin, and cheeks- my skin is not smooth to the touch, yet it is not breakouts that are making it bumpy- when i apply makeup it looks dry, cakey, and not glowing..... and i can see tons of little white dots or plugs in my skin   my routine consists of.... clarisonic with cashmere brush head- maybe every other day peter thomas roth gentle complexion correction pads- 1 a week dr jart water sure gel moisturizer dr jart water fuse sleeping mask- 2 a week ole henriksen- walnut scrub- maybe 2 a week cleanser- currently a sample of ren cleansing balm but not sure if its right?? also have fresh soy cleanser..... topical retinoid cream from dermatologist- every other day at night '   any suggestions???

Help! Recommendations for uneven texture. Beauty on a Budget.
I wanted to see if anyone could make a recommendation for me! My skin is finally clearing up from battling with acne, but I still have a pretty uneven texture.

Moisturizer for Acne-Prone Skin
Hi Ladies,   I have skin that is very prone to moderate acne. I don't want moisturizer that combats acne because I have other things to help with that. It can't have salicylic acid or anything like that in it. I need a non-comedogenic moisturizer with no fragrance and oil-free that doesn't make me oily and shiny throughout the day.   I've already tried: Clear Days Ahead, the PTR Oil-Free Moisturizer, NARS Aqua Gel, Clinique Dramatically Different, and one of the Boscia moisturizers (it was oil-free in a white tube). They all broke me out. I've been looking at the Estee Lauder Clear Difference Moisturizer. There's only one review on Sephora. Do you guys know anything about it?   Can anyone suggest even a line that I can look into if not a specific product? My dermatologist suggested the CeraVe moisturizer and it's fine but it makes me really shiny. Thank you!

Skin Too Dry for Makeup
Every time I put on BB cream it immediately makes my skin incredibly flaky. I've even tried putting on moisturizer first or mixing the BB with some of my moisturizer and ten minutes after applying I'm a flaky mess. My moisturizer works fine and I'm not dry after applying it, it's any kind of coverage that's drying me up.   Im using the Smashbox BB currently and have no idea what to do! The attached photos is after applying.

BB cream for dry fair skinBB cream for fair dry skin!
i don't wear makeup often, but have recently discovered BB creams. I was matched at Sephora and the woman gave me Clinique BB cream in shade 01.    The color is perfect for me, except it clings to dry patches and feels a bit heavy.   Are there any BB creams that would match my fair skin (I think I have pink undertones) that wont stick to dry spots!!??

Dupe for ProActiv Advanced Daily Oil Control?
It's a very niche question (Oily/combo people, who've tried proactiv, who also received that same sample, liked it, managed to escape ProActiv, missed the oil control thing, and managed to find a dupe probably isn't very many people), but maybe someone will have something, or at least an idea to try?   I tried the Murad Oil control, but it only does about 1/4 of the oil control the proactiv one does. I could probably just get it on eBay, but if I can avoid it I'd prefer to. I don't like the idea of, in some roundabout way, supporting a company that literally forces you to continue paying for their products. (I took them off of my paypal list, since the first person I talked to refused to cancel my account, so they sent the next box with a bill. Either I had to pay for the products or pay for return shipping.)

need a super hydrating moisturizer
I have combo skin with an oily T-zone and my cheeks are usually normal to slightly dry but now that I've changed up my face routine there's an area of my cheeks close to my chin on both sides that are extremely dry that the skin is flaking. My cheeks feel really tight after cleansing. Before changing up my routine my cheeks were normal and did not feel tight and weren't flaking.   I've been rotating my usual creams but I haven't found that any of them really made a huge difference. I've used Philosophy's Hope in a Jar , Glamglow's Thirstymud Mask , and a moisturizer by Ole Henriksen that I was given a sample of by an SA but the name of it isn't clear on the bag.   I'm looking for a very hydrating moisturizer (for night time) that will hopefully bring my cheeks back to normal soon.

Foundation Separates Between Eyebrows
This is constantly a problem for me, no matter what I do or what products I use. My skin is dry all over, so also dry between my brows, but I'm happy with how my skincare routine handles dryness. I moisturize, I exfoliate, I've tried facial mists, setting sprays, at least a dozen different foundations - even BB cream separates on me. I have used many different application methods, from my fingers to a damp beautyblender to any and all brushes. I'm obviously frustrated. Has anyone else had this problem and figured out how to deal with it? I cannot think of anything else to try!

titanium free foundation?
Does anyone know of a titanium free foundation. After trying many, many foundations I have figured out that it is the titanium in foundation that causes some of the ashy/unflattering grey glaze that some women of color experience when wearing foundation. It totally kills the vibrant golden/yellow tones in my skin. My true foundation match does not exist (somewhere  between mac nc45 and nc50..or possibly nw). I usually have to choose between one shade that is too dark and the next on up which is often 10-20 shades lighter with an overpowering amount of titanium that makes it hard to even blend 2 shades without looking dead and muddy. I also have oily skin that hates most silicone based foundation (makeup forever hd, etc.). They somehow un-blend from my skin and swim on the surface after 2-4 hrs. If I rely on blot papers I will use the entire pack in one day. I have tried the color matching at Sephora which was not helpful. Any help is appreciated,

Best cleanser for clarisonic if your ance prone?
I got a Clarisonic last christmas and I started using it twice a day, every day and of course my skin freaked out. I tried using Philosophy's Purity Made Simple and Fresh's Soy Face Cleanser and neither of them seemed to help with the acne. I then tried using my clarisonic once a day then every other day and finally I gave Clarisonic's acne brush head and cleanser a try. The acne cleanser made the problem worse. After three months of no end to the "purge" I finally gave up and went back to using Proactiv + which works to keep my skin pimple free but it's also really drying. I bought this really expensive tool and I want to use it because I loved how it made my skin feel. I am not super diligent with my proactiv and I mainly use it every other day at night to try and give my skin some time to get some hydration back but really what's the point? I hate using the proactiv and I have had a lot of problems just getting the stuff sent to me so I'm just fed up with them.    I have acne prone skin but lately my skin is more dry and the main reason I use the proactiv now is to help get rid of flaky patches around my eyebrows, nose and around my mouth because my acne seems pretty under control because it's a pretty mild version. It's also a double edge sword because of course I have to pack on some kind of moisturizer after using the proactiv and like I said, I'm just fed up.    Has anyone had SUCESS using something with their clarisonic to help prevent acne but still have moisture in their skin? I am scared to try and use my clarisonic again because I'm worried my skin with start purging (and won't stop) but if anyone has any tips, tricks or advice I'm all ears because I'm really concerned that just using make up remover wipes and a simple cleanser isnt' really cleaning my skin (when I don't use proactiv).

Day/night moisturizers for very dehydrated but very oily-combination skin?
I have tried so many moisturizers in my life but I can just never find the perfect one. I am seriously willing to pay anything for a moisturizer that will ACTUALLY control/get rid of my oil and rebalance my skin while hydrating at the same time. As long as it's worth the money. I went to Kiehl's and they used their moisture level checker (or whatever) on me and I got a pretty bad score. Of course I don't know if it's reliable since it seems pretty gimmicky but my skin does seem pretty dehydrated.   Background on my skin:  -VERY oily in the t-zone, relatively normal around the cheeks -slight dryness/flakiness around the mouth area in the winter -very acne prone, blackheads on nose   Currently, I just use toner and moisturizer in the morning. I got three samples from Sephora (Ren's Clarimatte, Kate Sommerville's Oil Free Moisturizer, and Origins Zero Oil Moisturizer). I have been trialing the Ren moisturizer for a few days now and I've noticed that my nose and mouth have become horrendously flaky and dry. Not sure if it's due to the moisturizer since it's always been dry, but it's been more so lately. I will be trying the other 2 samples in the next few days though. At night, I use my Clarisonic, but my routine is the same (plus the Caudalie Vinoperfect Serum, which seems to be working well).     So far from Sephora I've tried: Murad's Oil Controlling Mattifier (didn't really control oil well) Hope In A Jar (too dewy for daytime) FAB's Ultra Repair Cream (also too dewy for day time, didn't blow me away) Embryollise Lait-Creme (slightly hydrating, but too dewy for daytime) Clinique's Dramatically Different Gel (gave me hives ) Tarte Maracuja Oil (didn't really help my skin)   The ones that were too dewy didn't seem to make a huge difference either when used at night, and if it made a difference, it was too small to notice. Also, my skin doesn't seem to absorb any of the more rich moisturizers… it just sits on top of my skin.   I also currently have La Roche Posay's Effaclar Duo+ at home, but I don't know if that's supposed to be used by itself or with another moisturizer.   ALSO open to face mask/exfoliator suggestions or whatever! Any help is seriously appreciated because at this point my skin seems like a lost cause

Need Guidance on Cleanser and Moisturizer
I am 23 with acne-prone, sensitive, easily irritated, combination skin.   My main skin concerns would be my acne, redness and overall skin dullness/roughness. I feel like I have tried every product imaginable, but nothing seems to work. Currently, I am struggling with little red bumps, mainly around my mouth and chin, that don't appear to be acne, but I believe they are from irritation caused by using the wrong products.   For now, I am looking for a better cleanser and moisturizer. I have done my research and would like opinons on the Shiseido ibuki purifying cleanser v. Shiseido ibuki gentle cleanser and any advice on a good moisturizer that will give me a healthy glow, will not irritate my skin and will get rid of these pesky red bumps as well as keep my acne at bay.   Also, does anyone have an opinion on using alcohol-free, fragrance-free witch hazel? I've heard mixed reviews on using witch hazel on your face, but have also seen where it apparently does wonders for your skin.

New beauty tricks for 2015
There was a post long ago that had to do with beauty tricks and secrets that I can't find, and I had a great discovery today, so I thought I'd start a new one for 2015. I was changing my Clarisonic head today and noticed some residue stuck in the plastic and wire part under the head. It wouldn't come out with a brush because I couldn't get the brush to bend under there. I spied my Water Pik on the counter and thought "It gets out stuck food in tiny spaces between my teeth, let's give it a try". And wow, did that thing work!  My Clarisonic is squeeky clean with no effort! Have you used a household item for beauty needs that isn't readily obvious?
