Dear Sephora, What Happened to Your Hair (section)?

I guess getting older is part of life; and along with it comes an adjustment – to life, to your energy level, and of course, to retail stores deciding to change the brands and styles they carry.

Along with this revelation, Sephora has proved to be no exception. This past weekend they were running a 2x points on skincare promotion, so naturally, I stopped by to pick up some of the goodies I mentioned in my last post.

I decided to seek out a new leave-in conditioner (I love Fekkai) and was shocked when I was greeted with only a handful of options – and none of the ones I’m used to seeing. What the $%%##? Fekkai is nowhere to be found! The lady informed me they no longer carry that brand. Why? Is it too low-scale for their classy hair products?

I’m the kind of girl that carries a separate container in my purse chock-full of coupons. I love deals. But I also love luxury and prefer to dabble in both.

Is Sephora getting too snobby and exclusive with their haircare products? Or am I just getting too old and stuck in my ways? What do you think?

XOXO

I Went to Ulta…And Didn’t Spend a Dime!

I love feeling like I am getting paid to shop in some of my favorite stores, and Ulta is no exception.

I realized that I was low on hair products and didn’t want to shell out lots of $$, so I headed over to Ulta because I had a couple of gift cards and a coupon from RetailMeNot. I also love Ulta because as I shop, they give me $$ off my next purchase just by using their loyalty card.

My first stop was, naturally, the clearance section, where I managed to pick up 4 bottles of shampoo/conditioner (2 of each) for around $2 a pop. Next, I picked up a detangler for $18 and Fekkai leave in conditioner for $26.

I headed to check out, anxiously awaiting my total, which was $56. I had an $8 store credit from previous shopping trips, along with my $3.50 RetailMeNot coupon. I then used one of my birthday gift cards and knocked another $30 off, and then another gift card – and still had $13 left over for my next excursion.

Have you had any successful shopping trips?? Share them below!Shop on!!

Onwards & upwards,
