Happened the same to me with the eye version, but only the first applications. The serum works fine to me

My walk of shame:

All Clinique products. This company is a joke. It should be banned and sent to hell.

Vichy Aqualia Thermal (in slim, light teal tube). It is supposed to be for people with allergies!!!! When I first applied it next to eyes they got swollen immediately. JOKE.

Day Wear Estee Lauder. OMG. I cannot believe that so many people is in love with this cream. For me it is a nightmare. Clogs pores, I have immense breakouts and my skin is all shiny.

Don't get me started on Clinique! I used to love the cleansing kits when I was in grade school,... but I tried the "Even Better Skin Tone Corrector", ....and could not get past the 2nd day of use because of the acne that started to come up on my skin! Bah!

This brand called Beauty Formulas didn't do anything for me. http://www.beauty-formulas.co.uk/

My walk of shame is really long. My skin is very troublesome as it's very delicate, pale with visible blood vessels. It;s easily irritated so I've tried really lots and lots of products. The only ones that seem to be working and make my skin really much better, fresher, thicker (really!) are IsisPharma and Avene.

Walk of shame:
TheBody Shop - I like organic stuff for my body (to put it onto face is out of the question ) but the body shop is way too rich for me, and their cosmetics are nice for first five minutes.

Creme de la Mer - for me, it was a waste of money. I think it's a brillian moisturizer, and for people with good normal skin it's probably enough. For me, it wasn't. After three hours my skin was reddened and needed to be nurtured. Also, it didn't prevent the reaction to atmosphere conditions - to be clear, I don't say that the producer promises that it would, but it's ust not good for my type of skin.

La Roche Posey, Uriage - it just didn't work for me..

All of the "natural" organic stuff. Gave me allergies. Barf. Now I only use skin care with minimal, safe ingredients like mineral oil. Safest stuff out there.

kiehls has to be one of the worst brands I've tried. All of their products have made my skin burn really badly and given me a rash, especially the midnight recovery concentrate and the ultra facial moisturiser

I'm confused about this whole natural/organic thing. Some brands that claim to be 'natural' I have reacted very badly to, but Darphin which I am using now, works really well and apparently contains botanicals

^ Natural ingredients like botanical extracts & essential oils, for example, have chemical profiles which are incredibly complex. So it's much more difficult to control interactions with other ingredients and/or anticipate adverse reactions/sensitivities from formulae with these than from something with a simple structure like "non-natural" mineral oil or silicones.

That doesn't means that if you have sensitive skin that you should avoid "natural" ingredients, after all, the #1 sensitizer in skincare in generally fragrance which would not usually be found in an all-natural-organic-type product.

Rather, that if you have senstitive skin and want to use natural products, don't assume they are hypo-allergenic and always patch-test before going full-face
