People Are Applauding This Sephora’s Special Shopping Baskets For Introvert Customers

Enjoying shopping in stores relies on liking a lot of non-shopping things, like crowds, loud music, and being repeatedly approached by strangers who ask you invasive questions.

Please, bring these to the U.S. I promise, Sephora, I already spend an ungodly amount of money. the longer I can walk around unmolested, the worse it will get. For my pocketbook.
