Im allergic to a lot of makeup. I cant use any type of foundation or powder. It causes bumps and blackheads for me.
The only thing that doesnt clog my pores is concealer. Which seems odd, it seems like that would clog more than anything but ive been using it for over ten years on all areas of my face with no trouble.
Avada is correct. Labels are very misleading and the FDA is often part of the problem. I also had trouble with cover girl years ago. Smells great but i think the fragrance in their powders is what caused irritation for me. Luckily, there are some great powders out there that are fragrance and preservative free. Dont give up, youll find one. like Avada said-lots of trial and error.
Maybe once or twice a year, i use a powder if my complexion really sucks on a particular day. Its studio gear if you want to give it a shot. This one doesnt cause anything but blackheads for me, but i have to use it everyday for that to happen. Once here and there causes no trouble for me.
Maybe you could try almay or neutrogena powders? I know some ladies that have decent luck with those. I hope you find one that works for you.
