Sounds like you could have some sort of fragrance sensitivity or perfume intolerance, which according to Wikipedia is a thing! Maybe having a name to put with it could help you figure out what it is you're allergic to, if you're interested in finding out that sort of thing! » 10/10/14 11:36am 10/10/14 11:36am

I can actually sort of see it being dangerous when it comes to labs. When it comes to chemistry (as well as some biology and maybe physics), there are generally strict rules about skin exposure, shoes, and hair that are enforced for the safety of the students. That said, those rules generally only applied when it was… » 9/16/14 9:05am 9/16/14 9:05am

I definitely have to second the yellow concealer stick for undereye circles! This product (or a similar one from a different brand, but same sort of stick in the same color) has been my savior for the past...5 years or so? At least? I adore it. » 8/20/14 5:39pm 8/20/14 5:39pm

I haven't tried a pen-style like this before, but I do want… » 8/09/14 1:54am 8/09/14 1:54am

No real thoughts to contribute about whether or not you should get them, but my browser just popped up with a coupon for the site! You can get 15% off your order with the coupon code "3J5S".

I had allergy testing done last year. (I actually have pictures of my back after they did the test if you want to see, lol!) It really wasn't too bad, though I do have a high tolerance for pain. I know for me, I didn't end up pursuing allergy shots because of where I was at the time (moving between cities and doctors,… » 7/11/14 10:55am 7/11/14 10:55am

Wow. That sounds absolutely horrible and traumatizing. I'm so glad you were able to leave, though! That must have taken a truly incredible amount of strength. I hope some of your family is able to muster up some of that same strength and a good deal of clarity someday so they can follow you. » 6/25/14 3:01am 6/25/14 3:01am
