Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Oh I hate that too! I think its so much frustrating. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Must be frustrating as heck for y'all, but stable currency.  Just business. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I don't think you know how frustrating... our Canadian companies are being bought by other giant companies or giant companies come into this country and swallows up the Canadian competition... small ones like those I mentioned above sell in USD and other companies just sell out to the US... cough cough Bite... It's beyond frustrating. I'm all for encouraging small businesses/Canadian businesses and stuff but that's like a slap in the face and makes me want to shop elsewhere.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

This does sound frustrating.  How are they able to sell is USD in your country?

 

Is it because it is online???

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

yup @wheeeee. I try not to buy anything in USD at the moment because the exchange rate sucks. Plus I think there's always some type of fee associated with it or something... so like it costs even more... like for paypal or the cc there's a fee for them to make the conversion?? ugh banks... won't start on that LOL 😄

 

To me it's a slap in the face... like your country isn't good enough or what? I was set to purchase from both companies now those purchases are on hold.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

YES! Looking at you Beaute Cosmetics

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

uh. Don't know that brand.

 

I'm referring to Suva Beauty and Lit Cosmetics in my post. Happy to find out they are both Canadian... but they sell in USD? yeah I'll rethink my purchase.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

A little peeve...cactus legs! 😄

I am currently recovering from a procedure; and cannot shave my legs because of pain and mobility issues. I really hate having to sport the dreaded stubble, especially in the summer! 

 

 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Aw,  feel ya!  I just had my first good shave in months a couple days ago.  I'd been shaving but not very nicely. I can't stop rubbing my legs together. 😄

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Hope you are ok!  I totally get that... I caved years ago and got laser treatments. Best thing I ever invested in considering I'd shave and not even 24 hours later it wasn't smooth no more.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@veronika23 Thanks! 😊 I will be down for about a week. I have always been interested in the laser treatment....especially right at this moment lol!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@angel7594 hope the week goes by fast for you so you can get to shaving those legs 😄 😉

 

If you ever look into it remember that not all machines are made the same and that you would be better off going to a derm or a highly skilled place instead of a beauty spa.  I know plenty of people that it barely worked for them... Also saw horror stories of people being burned 😕 I'm happy that years later it's still good.  I mean I have those baby blond hairs here and there but that's pretty much it.

 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@veronika23,

I hope it goes fast too! 😄

Thanks for the advice about laser treatment. I would definitely go through my dermatologist, that is frightening about people getting burned! 😞

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@angel7594 I know it is! I always find it's best to leave things like this to the derm rather than a beauty spa.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I feel ya...smooth legs are definitely a priority in my life 🙂

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

My two Sephora orders arrived today! One package had NO samples, nothing, nada...so empty. Not even 1 sample!!!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

That happened to me last week. Prior to that, I had orders with 1 or 2, but I'd never had them all missing. I was pissed, because I ordered the Dior primer the morning it launched. It had to be in stock. Does your order form just say general samples three times instead of the samples you ordered? I am convinced the packers were just like, it does not say what she wants, so she gets nothing!

 

I've had Ulta and Beauty online forget my samples before, but never Sephora. Bloomingdale's always seems to adds extra samples. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@notcreative I took a look at my packing slip and it does say specifically which samples I chose! I picked the Dior primer too in both my orders, so I only got one instead.

A friendly mod gave me 50 points for my missing samples, so that was very nice 🙂

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I placed a second order for the Dior primer, and it arrived yesterday. I was happy I got one, too. 

 

It is listed in my account.
