Open Letter to Sephora

Dear Sephora,

Yesterday I visited your Keystone store in Indianapolis, IN for a makeup consultation.  I don't usually wear much makeup and I've been fortunate to have always had decent skin, so I never felt that I really needed it.  I have just finished up receiving chemotherapy to treat Hodgkin's Lymphoma.  Over the last several months, the chemo has really taken its toll on my skin, so I decided to visit your store for some help.

I'm sorry to say I can't remember the name of the associate who helped me, but she was amazing!  She took her time with me and was so sweet and kind!   After months of feeling (and looking) sick, it was so nice to be pampered and to actually feel good about my appearance again.

Cancer treatment is very expensive, so I didn't have a big budget to work with.  The associate did such a great job of helping me decide which products were the best investment for me.  There were a few products that I loved but were out of my budget - she helped me find comparable products that were more in my price range.  She also wrote down all of the products she showed me so I can come back another time (when my budget's been replenished!) and purchase them.

I am so grateful for the kind folks at the Keystone store.  Everyone was so nice to me and made me feel so wonderful.  It's been a long time since I've felt that good about myself and for the first time in months I felt beautiful.
