Thank you everyone! I have since looked on Amazon and you are all right that it seems to be fairly easy to get hold of the Bioderma brand in the UK (I'd never heard of it so had no idea it was French). I've also found the L'Oreal one at a fairly sensible price and an Eau Thermale Avene one that looks like a very similar product as well so now I seem to be spoilt for choice!
I personally use Target Brand's Up & Up... I also love the Simple wipes (the non-exfoliating ones obviously). Both are gentle.
I've tried plenty that broke me out (ESPECIALLY say yes to cucumbers) but the Target brand ones seems to soothe my skin at the same time, and I have very, VERY sensitive skin.
Just wondering.. do you have any makeup brands or products that don't break you out that you could recommend?
Thanks for the face wipe recommendations. I shall have a look into them!
I've had so much trouble finding make-up that doesn't break me out and I've tried a lot of different things. The only one I've found that reliably doesn't break me out is Maybelline's Pure Liquid Mineral Foundation. I've used it for years and it's the only thing my skin tolerates so now I would never use anything else. Unfortunately that is literally the only thing I can recommend because all powders and concealers break me out and even other Maybelline liquid foundations do the same (their Superstay 24 hour one gave me an absolutely horrific breakout and I think that was because it had a much more waxy kind of consistency compared to the mineral one which seems to be more water-based but dries on really nicely).
Yeah! Me too!! I'm trying more pure stuff now... you should try out Ultra Pure Cosmetics! I have gluten sensitivity and am allergic to practically every product out there. While I don't know if this is helping, it sure isn't aggravating my acne and it looks GREAT. You can always try the sample set.
I LOVED Superstay 24 Hour but it always slid off my face like some creature that belongs in a swamp.
I know that Cover Girl's Advanced Radiance has NEVER EVER broken me out. It can be hard to find a good shade but seriously try that out. And Physician's Formula Powders if you haven't yet.
Definitely keep makeup to a minimum.. I wish I had pretty skin to show off, but I can't stand my face without makeup. :\ One day!
Some people say dimethicone really breaks them out, while others say it's fine. So check out all of the ingredients.. and when in doubt go to Ulta's website to check out the reviews. Lots of people have problematic skin and you'll be able to see their experiences with it!
