Hey guys,


I was hoping to get some help figuring out what this reaction could be from. I've been using this product for a little over a week but usually use a toner before it- so when I use this serum after it, I do notice some redness but never thought too hard about it. This morning I used it alone and within 10 minutes I ended up with so much redness and blotchiness and itching-pictures below. The product


I used is from Garden of Wisdom- which is awful because I actually adore the product and has these ingredients;

-spring water
-Zemea Certified 100%(fermented corn sugar)
-Salicylic Acid 2%
-Methycellulose Gum
-Geogard ( Gluconolactone and Sodium Benzonate)


Truly have no idea...although I will add I've experienced some of this redness also from Simple- Kind to skin refreshing facial wash gel which has these ingredients;

Propylene Glycol, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, Panthenol, Disodium EDTA, Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate 


Please help guys :(

i haven't really heard about those products you mentioned before, but the redness looks like an allergic reaction. How bad is the itching? is it constantly itching? try stopping your use of the product and see what happens. if the redness goes away its probably from the product. Not a doctor though, just my opinion
