Agreed, those two ingredients are worrisome. Olive oil fatty acids are fairly comedogenic. Cetearyl alcohol alone doesn't bother my skin, but I know it's kryptonite for other people. Btw, if that's the whole ingredient list, whats the preservative? What's running chelation interference for the green tea extract and antioxidants? Not sure I'd want to use this past the week it was made, and even then only if i kept it in the refrigerator.
I always heard sugars can be used as preservatives. The glucose would not be able to lengthen the lifespan of the green tea antioxidants?
the last two ingredients are supposedly antibacterial milk enzymes
All your options are heavy on coconut based compounds, but so is your "cranberry cream," so it seems your skin was fine with that. They can be comedogenic in some people.
Option 1 doesn't look good to me because the sodium hyaluronate is clearly at a very low concentration, and it also puzzlingly contains senna compounds... an herb that has no business in skin products that i know of (it's a strong, harsh laxative...).
Option 2 looks good to me. Calendula extract can be an irritant, but its far down the list... and most people tolerate it well, and it's got plenty of other soothing ingredients.
I can't see Option 3.
Option 4 looks great to me... green tea, chamomile and cucumber extracts are all high performance ingredients, and it has no apparent irritants.
So today was a minimum day. Out at like 11:30 or something. Me and 7-8 friends pile into some cars and just go eat and chipotle. First time in like FOREVER, a girl actually comes up to me to say hi. It may seem like nothing, but confident boosting is good enough for me haa.
Also, in 2nd period this girl with flawless skin complimented on my skin. First time that's ever happened to me ever.
Anyways, just figured it all goes to show that eventually you'll have a good day. Tomorrow may be a bad day, but just live it one day at a time ;p
ur skin must be looking good! what r u using? can u post pics
