How do I know if my product was opened and used?
I just bought the too faced better than sex mascara from a sephora store today. it seemed untouched in the packaging. The thing is, I had gone to the counter with other products and asked the lady and the register if they had more of these mascaras in stock, because there were no more on the shelves. she disappeared and returned with the mascara. it took her a little while, i could be being paranoid. anyway, im assuming she took one out of the storage units they have under the display. when i came home and opened it, it felt really light. i'm wondering if i was given a mascara that was already used? perhaps even the sample mascara? i'm not sure. there was also a red mark (kind of looks like paint/marker) on it, that won't come off. but that might just be a manufacturing defect. also, the package on the outside seemed pretty sound though. i ripped the top flap when i tried to open it, cause it was hard to unbox. does anyone know if i should go and return it for a new one?

The Non Joys of Pregnancy.
   Its such a blessing to see that positive symbol on your test when you've been trying to conceive.  For weeks you glow - mostly due to "morning" (All-day) sickness.     Now with the lovely changes my skins seems to have jumped back to the land of a teenager. SPOTS everywhere. On my chest and face and gosh does it make you feel un attractive.    I had terrible acne in high school and happily in my early twenties this calmed down.   I tried using clean and clear which seemed to aggravate the situation to a while new level.   I don't enjoy caking on makeup but lately it helps me just get out the door - - Any suggestions on getting my skin back to some normality?

Clarisonic - Delicate or sensitive?
I started using my clarisonic a month ago with the sensitive brush head, once a night. I developed small pimples on my forehead and cheeks about two weeks into it. Now, I have weird bumps just about all over my face that are slightly itchy. They seem to be under the skin everywhere. It's very upsetting being that some people are getting improved texture from the clarisonic and mine is horrible. I switched to the delicate brush two days ago but it feels just as rough and I haven't noticed a difference? Do you think these bumps are from irritation? Has this happened to any of you? Do any of you use the delicate brush and has it made a difference? PLEASE HELP

Is it ok to use the Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster with Proactive Plus?
I only use Proactive + in the mornings when I know I will be inside.(When I'm outside I use just SPF)  I only use the Pore targeting Treatment and the Complexion perfecting Hydrator. I don't use the cleanser because it is too harsh for my skin. I have oily skin and the Proactive does not help with that, but it helps with my acne, so I still use it, I just make sure to carry blotting papers with me. I wanted to put the Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster with it to help with the sun damage I have. Will that be ok for my Acne Prone, sun damaged, oily skin? Or will they counteract each other and be ineffective, or would it be to harsh on my skin?

Cleaner/ face wash
I have been struggling to find a good face wash for my face and I was wanting some advice as to what all you beautiful ladies out there do to keep your skin clear and acne free.   Right now I am using Kate Somerville  detox daily cleanser and I have been starting to break out badly on my forehead and chin. I also use clean and clear advantage spot and it has not been working very well on my stubborn pimples and break outs.   I have been feeling very overwhelmed with all the products out there and I know it is going to take some time for me to find what works, but if any one has any advice as to what they do that would be great!   I have oily skin and I tend to break out on my forehead and chin. And when I get pimples or breakouts, they are the huge, red, painful ones that hurt!

Would it be safe to use the Peter Thomas Sleeping Mask while on Accutane?
Peter Thomas Roth Camu Camu Power C x 30™ Vitamin C Brightening Sleeping Mask   Yes or no while on Accutane? I have acne scars left over from my Acne. I am still in my first month of Accutane. Or do you have any other product reccomendations for acne scars?   I have asked my dermatologist if I need to avoid certain products and all she said was to avoid topical treatments.    I have had to change my skin care because my skin was getting irritated from my Fresh Soy cleanser as well as the Korres rose+vitamin C sleeping facial. I am now using the Boscia cool cleaning oil and the Korres greek yogurt moisturizers.    If you guys have any other suggestions please let me know thank you!

What ingredients cause break outs and acne? (stearic acid?)
Since I have super sensitive acne-prone skin and break out to kinda every product, I'm really concerned ingredients before any purchases.   I heard stearic acid clogs pores and Shea butter also cause acne. But most of product including moisturizers and foundation contains stearic acid.   As I mentioned above, I have very sensitive breakouts-prone skin and very dehydrated oily combo skin ( I think). I want to know what ingredients cause break outs and what specific ingredient I should avoid.    If you have knowledge of any of these, please help me!!

Retinoid vs Salicylic Acid (BHA) for Acne-prone Skin. Which works better?
Has anyone had any experience with either a prescription retinoid or salicylic acid treatment? Which one do you prefer?   I was using Tazorac 0.05% gel for almost half a year, albeit infrequently (every three days or so) since it causes my skin to be red, flaky, and extremely sensitive if I use it so often. Two weeks ago, I stopped the Tazorac and have instead been using Paula's Choice 4% BHA foam, which may be helping more than the Tazorac. I use the BHA daily since my skin seems to be able to tolerate it better.   I used many different retinoids before (Differin, Atralin, Retin-A Micro) and I don't think any of them improved my skin much. However, given the research that shows anti-aging benefits, I've can't help but want to be able to incorporate them into my skincare routine. I still have two Tazorac  tubes left so after my skin calms down from a recent bad breakout, I want to start using it again.   Any advice or personal experience would be appreciated!

Skincare suggestions for 26 year old male.
I need help for my fiancé. He has terrible acne- he is 26 but has as much acne now as he did as a teenager.  I'm convinced that a good Skincare routine will help a lot.   He has been to dermatologists, but most of the prescription strength products are too irritating for him.  I think it is a combination of hormonal and stress acne.  He has dry, flaky skin over most of his face, an oily t-zone, and wrinkles around his eyes and forehead.    Please help me out with Skincare routine suggestions!   We are not vain people, but I know he is a little self conscious about the acne.  We are taking engagement pictures in 2 months and getting married later in the year and I want him to feel great about all the pictures.    Thanks!!
