  1. A point to remember: alot depends on how long the ingredient will be in contact with your skin. SLS in a cleanser will quickly be rinsed off and generally isn't a problem, whereas in the test conducted to get that awful rating, it was left in contact for a few weeks.
  2. Jojoba oil is actually a plant wax. It is chemically very similar to facial oil. You can get it at any healthfood store, or a place like Trader Joe's or Whole Foods. I use a drop or two when my face is still wet, and that takes care of that after-washing dryness. My skin feels fine the rest of the day.
  3. check your products (all of them, including makeup, shampoos, body washes. . .) really closely: are you using somehting that is constanly irritating? Something with menthol, eucalyptis, lemon or other heavily scented oil? How about alcohols? Scrubbing? Something with talc, colorings or heavy scents?
  4. In my opinion: no. Most have one or two really active and moisturizing ingredients (some sort of oil derivative, no matter how "oil free" it is), but that comes with a whole lotta preservatives, chemicals, fragrance, colorings,etc. If you need a moisturizer, look for ones that have the fewest number of ingredients. Iuse a drop of jojoba oil and thats it.
  5. generally, yes. But she may have changed that policy. . .it's been a while.
  6. Mineral make-up will not cover up differences in the texture of your skin. The pores will be there. I do not know of a single product, other than full on pancake make-up, that disguises texture. Minerals are great for correcting color differences.
  7. One goolge search will give you a complete, accurate list. . .instead of just listening to us yahoos
  8. First two ingredients are notorius for irritating problem skin. I wouldn't use this.
  9. Indications of an actual allergy are things like swelling, puffy eyes, hives or rahes over the boy. Yours sound like irritation. Here's the real test: irritation gets better, allergies get worse.
  10. I'd give it a 5. I did the big R for about five months consistantly The regimin did help clear up my active problems, but I developed a really bad clogged pore problem. Also, my face always felt red and irritated. I'd give it a 5.

  11. Your skin feels tight after the shower because the surface is a litle dried out from the heat and chemicals in the water, like chlorine. Try taking just a drop or two of jojoba oil, while your face is still a little wet, rubbing it wround in your hands, and patting it on. It will be very light, but will take that little egde off.
  12. I bought the liquid. I didn't are for it at all.
  13. Maybe the Reg is not for you. . .
  14. You could probably do a 3W in Aromaliegh, too. Maybe get a few other surrounding colors to test the range. they have free (or really cheap. . .I forget) shipping on samples under 20$.
