  1. If that's your best, then I guess I am right. This conversation is cloooosed.
  2. I graduated 2 years ago from a private design school. Your "lol" shows your attitude. People with money often sneer at those with less, dont they. Also, I was lucky if I had money to shop once a month. Maybe some do have more than that, but I wasnt around many who did. And no, many dont find A&F affordable; example: a large thread was made in the lounge on A&F & most said it was too expensive & overpriced.
  3. Possibly the sale prices arent far off from A&F (I've never shopped there), but the typical college student still couldn't afford the majority of what they sell. When I was in college, me & most girls I knew could not spend more than maybe $75 on a WHOLE outfit. Pretty near impossible to do at Anthropologie. And their $20 items are mostly plain tops you could get for $10 at Target. Anything cute & different would cost more & be a splurge item. The fact is, most of your list was u
  4. Yes I have checked out their sale items. When I was in college most people I knew, inlcluding myself (& yes I worked my way though school), could not afford their own place, much less an $80 pair of shoes (which is an average sale price, don't deny it, I check their website all the time). I don't know any middle class people who wear Marc Jacobs either, even on sale. Maybe one piece they splurged on once. That's great you make good money for your age & manage it well, but you are not the
  5. Their stuff is awesome....however, affordable they are not. It is clear you are not in the average income bracket of a college student in their early 20s. All those designers/ brands you listed are pretty awesome, but even with sales I dont think that most people could afford it. It's disturbing how wealthier people are so out of touch with reality...
  6. ^^^ If you're a female and looking for skinny jeans, I suggest J Brand jeans; they fit like a dream and they're fucking cute as hell. I also like Tsubi and Sass & Bide when it comes to skinny jeans that fit perfectly and make your booty look like sin. that would be dressing boring the two muted colors is a no-no. replace that with a lavendar shirt and you'd be solid.
  7. I'm no expert, but it definitely looks like a cyst to me. Check out "Learn about Different Types of Acne." I believe you'll find all the needed info there.
  8. Hi guys, I'm pretty desperate right now to get my skin under control again. My skin's main problem right now is that it is sun-damaged from excessive tanning and whatnot, so I need a product containing retinol to assist my skin cells into getting back into shape. What are my options? I'm not looking for presription retinoids, either. Surely, there must be some OTC products out there containing retinol, right? I'd try green cream, but it's way too expensive for me (I'm a working student).
  9. Is anyone familiar with Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Cream? It has retinol in it, and that's what I'm looking for at the moment because I think my skin is sun-damaged. Also, is it okay to use this product in conjunction with Paula's Choice 2% BHA and 2.5% BP? If not, perhaps I can alternate? Please give me your input, thanks!
  10. Is anyone familiar with Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Cream? It has retinol in it, and I think I need to incorporate retinol into my regimen because I'm pretty sure that I have sun-damaged skin. Any input would be nice! Thanks!
  11. Holy cow! I think I have the same exact problem as you, Yoshimi! I never even thought to attribute my skin condition (mild comedones) to sun-damaged skin, though!! Just like you, I was crystal clear thanks to DKR for years, and after years of playing in the sun and not wearing any sunscreen, I started to form comedones (something I've never, ever, ever had in the past) in October last year! All this time, I blamed my skin breaking out to birth control pills, as I coincidentally started break
  12. It looks to me like your acne around your mouth/chin area is inflammatory acne (pustules and papules). Do you suffer from clogged pores/comedones/blackheads? Because I don't really see any in the picture. If you're only suffering from inflammatory acne, which is what your chin acne looks like, then I'd definitely give the DKR a go. Basically you wash with a gentle cleanser, apply BP, and apply moisturizer or lotion twice a day, although I've gotten away with doing it only once a day for a co
  13. I just checked the ingredients list and realized that it contains Sodium Laureth Sulfate (4th ingredient on the list). Isn't that a big no-no? I've read that it clogs pores. Is this true?
