The "natural" trend isn't exactly cutting it for me anymore. Gimme what works. Tried & true..

#DitchTheJunk | Breast Cancer UK same with your shampoo... I havent tried any of these on the list but make sure there are no formaldehyde , parabens or sulphates in your shampoos too.
https://sulfatefreeshampoos.org/sulf...poo-list/#list, dont go with... Organic,, or for sensitive skin or Pure,read whats in it first.... and please dont go with if its expensive cream or makeup, it doesnt make a bit of difference.. if it has these parabens, sulphates , formadehyde etc in them. ditch them all ...PLEASE.. sorry for going on, but Im genuinly trying to help all to stop these companies selling us dangerous junk..
I used to be able to use any cream or any makeup on my face, when I was younger. But my skin has gone really sensitive over the years. Now, I have to be really careful what I put on it, otherwise I'll end up with an itchy rash or blotchy skin.

God knows what crap they put into these creams really. I know that Olay Total Effects is supposed to be really popular. But I've tried it, and it feels like its burning my skin and making my eyes water! I now stick to Simple products, or ones that have a lot of natural ingredients.

And yes, I hate it when some makeup is all perfumey. Like some lipsticks, when you wear them, feel like you are breathing in perfume from them!

i love Argan Oil of spinoosa, it is a miracle oil for my skin whether for the face, body, dry cuticles and heels. I've even used it on a family member who has psoriasis and it helped tremendously.

Olay had the same effect on me, I bought it about fifteen years ago, the new pump type and my face was on fire.. I looked it up and found that many people had the same reaction..why the hell are they allowed to sell this dangerous rubbish.

Yes, that's what happened to me. I couldn't use it at all. I wonder what's in it, to cause the burning sensation??

But the way they advertise it on British tv, they make out it's some miracle cream, used by so many women.

I have dealt w/ sensitive skin reactions from face products since I was a teenager- until I started the oil cleansing method about 6 yrs ago.. (which I love and still do)

Nivea just works for me- as a super heavy-duty & non-irritating winter moisturizer.

Last year I was dealing with flakey dryness that no amount of coconut oil or shea butter could fix! Lol.

Of all things, vaseline remedied that, but it's just too greasy to wear under makeup.

I had a similar reaction from an Olay Regenerist(?) cream. Burning, redness, and a bumpy rash..

Smile My favourite one is Margarita

There is this really good brand in Lithuania called Margarita. I have been using their creams for a very long time now. 5 years if not more. I have a very dry skin and especially struggle in winters. However, this cream saves me. I think you could be able to get it on ebay.com. It's natural and simply great. Not expensive at all.

Thanks for the link. I had no idea it was manufactured in Germany?? I always thought it was British, you live and learn! Only used the handcream way back in the past.
