Q. Will the Clarisonic stimulate unwanted hair growth?
I really want to buy a Clarisonic Mia but I'm afraid that it might stimulate the hair on my face to grow thicker. I really don't want my peach fuzz to become more noticeable.    I read this online: Topical hair growth  is caused by sustained surface irritation to an area. These methods can stimulate the blood supply to an area, bringing more nourishment to the area. This can stimulate hair growth.    Has this happened to anyone using the Clarisonic?

Q. sunscreen recommendation?
Hi! I have a bad habit of not wearing sunscreen but I just moved to the high desert and it's clearly necessary. How much spf do I need and can you recommend a sunscreen or moisturizer with spf (sephora or drugstore) that isn't greasy, won't cause acne, and can be worn smoothly under makeup? And on that note, should I wear foundation primer over the sunscreen? Thanks.

Q. SK II Cellumination
SK II's Cellumination line has been discontinued and pulled from the US market. Sephora still carries the cream and lotion from that line which I believe is existing stock waiting to be sold.  But the cellumination Aura Essence is gone, even from department stores. The asian market has it's replacement of with the Genoptics line. Anyone have any ideas when and if Sephora will add Genoptics to their SK II offering?

Q. I need some advice on a new skin care regimen!
Hey guys, so I'm 27 with fair, sensitive, acne prone skin especially hormonal acne. I   am thinking of changing up my skin care routine, BUT I have been using Origins plantscription am with SPF 25 and the night a mins cream at night (both creams are oil free too) for probably 2-3 years now. I just feel like maybe I need something new for my skin, I have been looking at Lancome and some other products, but I just dont know what to go with? obviously I would like a day cream that has SPF in it and im all about anti-aging products it is never too early to start for that. So I need some advice what are the best products to maybe try out that are reasonable or maybe just keep my routine the way it is?

Q. Under Eye Bumps, NOT milia
For as long as I can remember, I've had these tiny bumps that gather around the inner corner of my eye and along my dark circles. I really, really hate them! They kind of look like chicken skin, but they don't really feel bumpy or anything. I've seen pictures of milia, and that is definitely not what I have. These little bumps don't ever go away and they never move. Some people say that they've started to notice this chicken skin under their eyes as they aged, but I'm a Sophomore and I've had this problem my whole life! I've done a little research, and so far all of the fixes have been really complicated and confusing. Please give me a solution! I like to take good care of my skin, but I'd much rather just buy a lotion or something than see a dermatologist. Thanks for all your help!

Q. Sensitive skin testing
Hello! I have a question for those of you who have been to a dermatologist. Do they have some sort of skincare ingredient testing? For example, would they be able to say, You're allergic to Titanium Dioxide and Niacinamide. Or would they just say, You have sensitive skin. Avoid x, y and z.   It seems like everything I try, even if the product says it's for sensitive skin, I break out in red spots/bumps which I assume are from allergic irritation. When I stop using the product, the bumps go away.   The two products that I've been trying to look for are a moisturizer with SPF higher than 15 and something to lessen post acne marks. It has not been a simple task!   Any insight or info would be so appreciated! Thanks.

Q. Tips for skincare trials?
I've recently gotten interested in skincare and way too obsessed with trying to find the best of each type of product.  How do you ladies trial your skincare products? And how long do you give a product before you decide it isn't working?    I've been using Sunday Riley Start Over on one eye and Bliss Energizing Eye Gel on the other for the past two weeks and I don't think I've seen a difference yet. The SR eye might be slightly better, or that's just what I want to see...I can't tell.  Is two weeks long enough?

Q. Newbie to intensive skincare; any eyecream recommendations?
Hey guys I recently turned 23 and while there's nothing wrong with my face (it's honestly in the best shape it's ever been in ) I'd still like to take some preventative measures with it.   That said, I'd like start out with an eye cream and build up from there. Does anybody have any suggestions for an eye cream to try? As I said, I don't have any problems yet so I wouldn't need anything that's targeted towards dark circles or dryness or something like that; just a basic, daily maintenance eye cream.   I have normal skin, if that affects the suggestions.   Any and all help would be greatly appreciated!!

Q. Can someone help me find a sunscreen?
I used to use chemical sunscreens like from Neutrogena but they burned my eyes so I switched to physical sunscreens.I used the Shiseido for face/body SPF 50 in a blue bottle. However, I found those too drying. I feel like I'm at a dead end here in terms of finding a sunscreen that works for me. Can someone recommend a sunscreen that won't burn my eyes, isn't drying, doesn't feel greasy and doesn't have that sunscreen smell? It seems like a tall order but I'd appreciate any recommendations.

Q. Blush- The only cosmetic that is foreign to me.
  Hi there! This is my first time posting. I have a question about blush and finding the right color for your skin tone. I have very pale skin and have never used blush because I am naturally flushed in a pink tone. Now that I am 25, I feel like I need to wear blush in order to pull my entire makeup look together. I have tried using pink blush after applying my powder, and I have had success. However, my problem is that I wear very bold makeup often. When I wear bright red lipstick, I feel that the pink blush contradicts the overall color palette of my face that day. Is there some sort of red based blush that would help solve my problem? I do not think that peach blush will work with my cool skin tone. Any suggestions? Any help is appreciated.   This is the typical makeup I wear to work with pink blush.    This is an example of a bold eye that I wear with classic red lips.
