What bothers me the most is when I see some poor old lady at the Lancome counter handing over her money to some eager sales associate in exchange for a giant cream in a jar. I just want to go over there and be like, “Excuse me, I think you should go over to the Estee Lauder counter if you really want to help your skin.” But you know, to each his own, right? And I know the sales associate just want to make money. I should respect her position, right? What do you guys think? And you don’t have to respond to my question. Feel free to tell me what peeves YOU the most!
When I get something and later break out, get an allergic reaction, or start peeling from incompatibility. Hohoho.
That’s definitely never a good thing. Merry Christmas? Haha!
I hate it when a sales assistant tries to tell me what my skin type is and gets it completely wrong. Then they try to sell me something I don’t need based on the skin type they think I have.
Ugh I know! They just want to make a sale. 😦
In general, it bothers me whenever I know more than the sales associates. Even if Sephora wants to consider them “skin care experts”, they’re totally not. Understandably they can’t know all the details about each product of every skincare line but when I ask a question and they simply read me what is printed on the box I feel like “really? that’s the best you can do is read me what’s on the box? I can read *that* for myself, thankyouverymuch”. They serve no purpose whatsoever and just annoy me more than anything.
Bahaha! I know right! But I don’t say anything to offend them or get in the way of their potential sales from other customers. I mean, does that make me a bad person? By just staying silent as I see a “crime” happening right in front of me? Do I have the right to interfere with their right to pursue their goals. They’re not really hurting anyone, just taking advantage of their lack of knowledge. It’s definitely a complicated moral and ethical debate. What do you think, Karen?
Me too! Grrr…
Haha! I know right?!
It bothers me when I walk into Sephora and am just browsing and a SA tries to load me up with products without even understanding my skin type or issues.
I usually do most of my shopping online now. 🙂
P.S. I saw your post on Temptalia, so I decided to check out your blog. It looks great.
Thanks Leah! Yeah I was recently in Sephora for the VIB sale and I had to try my hardest not to say anything to the Philosophy SA that was there pushing all these products to people waiting in line! She was mostly just making things up and mixing and matching terms and definitions.
Thanks for writing!
