Klairs Vitamin C Serum Expiring?
Hey ladies, I've been using the Klairs C serum for the last three months, pretty religiously and it's been amazing. However, this morning I noticed a little yellow spot inside the pipette that disposes the serum. It's too large to enter or exit the pipette so I'm fairly certain that it's a fungal growth. I tried getting a picture but it's too small and the pipette glass is too reflective for a helpful image.   However, like I said, I've only had the serum and been using it for 3 months. The serum has a shelf life of 12 months from opening the bottle. Has this happened to anyone else? I purchased the serum from sokoglam in late November.    Also, what do you guys think? Is it contaminated?

Does anyone know if Sunday Riley has discontinued its Bionic cream? It's no longer showing on Sephora website or at most other websites. This is the first anti-aging type cream with bells and whistles that I've been able to use without any reactions.   Can a mod pipe in and confirm?

Looking for a cooling face spray
Hello all!    I'm on the hunt for a cooling face spray that I can use with/without makeup (so it doesn't necessarily have to be a makeup setting one, I already have one that I like for that purpose). I have moderate to severe rosacea so I am looking for something I can spritz on during the day when I'm getting a flare-up, after exercising, or just any point during the day I'm getting a little red that will give me a cooling sensation and that will actually help the problem a bit. I have used the Evian spray bottles, but I am wondering if there is something a little more 'medicated' if that's the word, that will help fix the problem besides just water. I also will be flying at least once a week for this next year, so I'm also looking for something I can spritz on during my flights to stay hydrated!   Thank you!

Sunscreen to layer under bb/cc cream
I'm looking for a sunscreen that won't break me out and doesn't leave me with a ghastly white pallor. I typically wear a tinted moisturizer or bb/cc cream...I keep switching, looking for the perfect one... and while they usually do have sunscreen built in, I need a proper sunscreen to layer underneath when I know I won't be inside most of the day.   I have combination skin, can get a little oily in the t zone, and I find that a lot of sunscreens (and moisturizers for that matter) make me break out, either rapidly in little whiteheads or after a few days with big nasty deep pimples.   I've been using the Shiseido Urban Environment 42 spf and it's ok but I'm nearing the end of the bottle and ready to try something else.   I know, this is the million dollar question, I'm looking for the thing everyone wants. What's your best sunscreen recommendation?

Blackheads/Sebaceous Filaments on Nose
I have had a problem with the blackheads on my nose for about 15 years. I have otherwise near-perfect skin which is slightly dehydrated, but have never suffered from acne or oiliness. The pore problem is isolated to just my nose, which is also rather large. What I am currently doing to get rid of them is using a pore strip after a steamy shower, then gently exfoliating my face and following up with a charcoal mud mask. This gets rid of them... BUT! I have to repeat the process within 3 days, and I am so tired of doing this. I have done so much research about the topic, and I know someone is bound to respond to this with "Don't use pore strips. They stretch out your pores and make them worse. If you stop using them, the blackheads will go away," but the blackheads are literally so bad that I cannot not be seen in public without clearing them first. The blackheads are 3-D, and stick out of my skin so I can literally feel them when I run my finger along my nose. (Did I mention I have a big nose? The blackheads are very noticeable!) Also, I have tried abstaining from using pore strips for a long time while being diligent with my normal skincare routine, and the blackheads did not just "go away." Below is a list of other products which I have tried to remedy the problem with:   Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment Caolion Premium Blackhead Steam Pore Pack Origins Clear Improvement Charcoal Mask Tony Moly Blackhead Out Oil Gel Clarisonic Cleansing System the entire line of Dr. Brandt "Pores no More"   I'm sure I am forgetting even more products which I have used, but NONE of these has helped my nose pores, and I am really open to any suggestions at this point. Has anyone with this problem found a method to fix it? What should I be doing differently? Any advice will help. Thank you so much!

Thoughts on Paula's Choice?
Do you agree with her views on skincare products?  I'm on a hunt for my Summer night serum & moisturizer. I think I'm going to purchase the Perricone Blue Plasma even though it stinks so bad of fish & I hate fish. I've been researching products a lot and one of the sites I was on was Paula's Choice. She is not a fan of the serum... Actually the more I read through her "beautypedia" reviews, it seems like she's not a fan of a lot of products. I also got a feeling she was mainly trying to push her own products and Olay.  Examples:  - She's against treatment cleansers since it's just "washed down the drain". I have to disagree with this. When I use a treatment cleanser, although they can be drying, I do see improvement in my breakouts.  - Witch Hazel is bad. I find witch hazel to be an important ingredient when choosing a toner. She think it's just as bad as alcohol if not worse.    Products she gave a "poor" rating to:  - Anthony Logistic's Glycolic cleanser got a poor rating because it doesn't contain any glycolic acid.  - doctor dennis gross's A/B pads since we can just skip step 2 by simply splashing water on our face to deactivate step 1.  - Dior Capture Totale One Essential Serum because it's not a "miracle serum" since it's primarily just "water, slip agents, and alcohol" - ExfoliKate - Just about every Ole Henriksen product I love   - Origins Checks & Balances, Charcoal Mask & every other decent product from them - Most Murad products   I do agree with a few points she makes, like companies need to stop putting active ingredients in clear vials so the sun doesn't break down the properties of the treatment. Also jar packaging is a big no-no for her. I understand that some creams are too thick to be put in a pump, but what about those airless jars that Bosica & Dermadoctor are using? I hate sticking my fingers in jars & the air does break down the active ingredients over time...  Overall though, I don't think I'll be going to her site when I'm researching a new product I want to try.

Help! My facial skin is changing!
I turned 39 at the end of January. I've always had very large pores. I feel like they're even more noticeable these days. I've also feel like my facial skin is rough, on my cheeks, chin & nose. Not exactly dry, or flaky. More like sandpaper rough. It feels a little like my big pores are constantly pushing out blackheads. I want to just scrape my nail along the roughest spots. I know better than to do that. I use a Clarisonic Smart Profile, currently with the Deep Pore brush head, every day. I was using Arbonne's Re9 facial line, which worked great up until about 6 months ago. For Christmas, I got both Drunk Elephant value sets to try them out & see if that line would fix any problems. No change, at all. Except for a couple of spots being rougher, if I use the Night Serum every day. I use a few different masks. All of the GlamGlow ones, mostly. I try to do at least one a week, if not two. I need some advice on what else I could possibly try. I'm hoping to not have to spend a ton of money, but know good skin care costs a fair amount. Thanks in advance.

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!

In need of at-home treatment for toennail fungus
Hello beauties,   Years ago, during my teen years, I worked as a lifeguard at a swimming pool.  Ever since that experience, unfortunately, I've had an issue with fungus on my toenails (one foot only, oddly enough).  If I knew how contagious this was, I would have walked around with flipflops instead of barefoot.  My podiatrist prescribed an oral antibiotic, but after treatment, the fungus reappeared.  Do any of you know of anything topical that I can apply to help get rid of the fungus once and for all?  I'm a very healthy and clean individual, so I'm frustrated to be dealing with such a nasty thing and would be ever so grateful for any advice/recommendations.    Thanks so much in advance!

Super sad and curious
So I LOVE the Sephora Collection lip masks, especially the Shea! When I went to pick some more up in store the other day they were all out and said they had been for a while. I checked the site to find out that even online all there is are the Rose ones. I'm just curious if the Shea lip masks were discontinued completely? I clicked to be emailed when the item is back in stock, but I just wanted to know if I would be wasting my time waiting for an email when I should instead be looking for a new product?

I'm 30, and had my first baby in October. I woke up one morning and tried to remove leftover mascara under one eye only to discover it was a "dark circle"!

Suggestions for correctors & pores
  I have two issues that have been bothering me lately... one is my dark hereditary under eye circles, and the other is large pores that appear like they are filled with blackheads all the time. I have decided I want to try the Giorgio Armani Master Corrector.. should I use the pink (shade 1) or orange (2) for my circles which can be blueish but mostly are just brownish?   Secondly, you can probably see in the picture that I have enlarged pores all the way up towards my under eyes and on the part of my nose that is showing. I don't believe theres any way to shrink pores... but is there something I should add to my skincare routine? I'm 24 years old with dry skin, and currently use Cerave Face Wash, Clinique Clarifying Lotion 2, a liquid BHA 2% exfoliator at night, paula's choice benzoyl peroxide treatment as needed for acne, and moisturize with Clinique Dramatically Different Lotion + at night, and use Clinique Moisture Surge Intense in the morning.
