    Coffee and Acne: Is there a link?

    I drink about 2-3 cups of coffee every morning, it's the only way I can stay alert throughout the day. I don't really break out badly every month, but on occasion, it happens. Usually, it comes around times of stress and that's when I'm taking in even more caffeine, so that makes me think...

    Hmm...though I had no intentions of buying the SE brush sets this year, I got the face brush one as a b-day gift and I noticed it's less wide than the usual, long-handled 187...can anyone tell me if it compares to the 188, or am I just being a snob to the long-handled brushes?

    Why are some counters just more aproachable?

    What makes a good counter/store? I was just thinking about it, but I definitely avoid one of the counters in my area and go out of my way just so I don't have to go there.
