Thanks to Emily for today's question!

Have you had any skin issues? How did you resolve them?

I struggled with acne for awhile, into my mid-20s. For me, two prescriptions, topical antibiotic (clindamycin) and Differin, really cleared up everything. While products like Mario Badescu’s acne products (Drying Cream, Drying Lotion, etc.) worked well for active acne, it never went away entirely until I started using my prescription regimen.

Thanks to Cat for today's question!

Do you keep duplicates of brushes you like?

Yes, absolutely! For the most part, I use them the same as the first one – I tend to duplicate ones like eyeshadow and crease brushes, so I can use one for each color (or maybe every two colors, depending on how drastic the difference between the colors is!). I can also run through brushes pretty quickly, so I keep extras of my favorites as I only wash brushes every few days.

I’m much more critical of products, and I really have little tolerance for truly disappointing products. I am more willing to try different brands, products, and colors, I think, because being plugged into the community really gives one insight into just how vast it is! On a more negative note, I trust online reviews (not just influencer reviews but ones on retailers’ websites) a lot less, which is something I’ve experienced across types of reviews, not just beauty.
