This may seem somewhat frivolous, but I'm desparate. Most lipsticks make my lips itch and get sore. Clinique used to work for me but the company has changed the formula to include SPF and moisture, and now my lips itch like crazy when I wear it.

Anybody know any brands that won't have this effect?

Help!

Read Almay and Neutrogena lipsticks and see if they are hypo. - if you have a problem w/them, CVS and Rite Aid will return them.

Thanks! Didn't know Neutrogena sold lipstick. I'll have to check them out. Almay hard to find at this point.

I have all of the same problems with anything on my lips including gloss or balm. I did find one with Emu oil at a swap meet that worked ok for awhile, but then I reacted to that too. I also think it is from SPF, or perhaps just exposure to the sun when I was younger. If anyone comes up with anything that works I'll be interested. Used Tangee many years ago, might have to give it another try, but sure would like to find something moisturizing.

Default Moisturizing Ingredients Could Be the Allergen

I'm thinking the moisturizing ingredients cause the allergic reaction, along with SPF. I'm allergic to soy and many products have that ingredient. It's so hard to figure.

I stay far away from crands such as Clinque, Revlon, and Avon as much as possible. Well I tend to not use makeup for the most part because I love the natural look but also in part that I get severe allergic reactions to whatever they have in their makeup/skincare line in those brands. What I found that works for me MAC has a nice lipshine lipstick? for the tinted colors and mix it with natural lip balm for the mosturizing effect.

I know petrolatum and SPF are culprits. Am not sure about beeswax. I usually react to products with that in it, but don't know if it is that or something else. Tried some Neutrogena natural lip balm recently. I can use it once in awhile, but not on a regular basis. Only use it when I am desperate. What is MAC? I can't use any of the "brands" either. I did find some nice natural products from Evans Garden (evansgarden.com), Also has a lot of good info on taking care of ourselves and our earth.

You also might try Burt's Bees. I love their lip balm but they also have glosses and lipstick-like products that might work for you.

I tried Burt's Bees and liked the way it looked. However, it caused dryness and cracking
