  1. Do you work for Faerie? Seems every one of your posts mentions them, you have them in your sig, and your avatar is from their site. I wish! And sorry, No my avatar is not from their site. As a matter of fact I found this avatar online and I luv it as it pretty much somes me up, I consider myself to be a flower child at heart. We are in the makeup forum and it is what I use. And sorry but not everyone of my posts bring them up. I have seen several people in here continually talk about Ever
  2. Maybelline Matte mouse is realy bad for your skin. You really want to stay away from mainstream drugstore brands as they are loaded with chemicals that can bring on "chemical induced acne" if you are already acne prone-watch out! The very best makeup you can get for acne in my opinion is Mineral Makeup. My face has changed dramatically simply from switching my makeup. I used Bare escentuals in the past but it left me greasy and didn't offer enough coverage. I almost swore off MM altogether until
  3. Most likely it is some of the other chemicals in the sunscreen. Mainstream brands are loaded with toxic chemicals that can cause contact dermatitis and skin conditions. Check for propelyne glycol, dimethicone, synthetic fragrances etc.... I would try a natural organic one and see if this still happens.
  4. Mineral Makeup really is the best thing for acne as most of them do not have the chemicals and fillers that liquid/commercial/makeup counter brands do. I personally also use Faerie Organic Mineral foundation. It is the best I have used. I looked into EM but I freaked with the color selection and the finish selection. I love that FO's are very light and airy yet they cover really well and they are antiinflammatory and antibacterial due to the zinc oxide and boron nitride. My acne has gotten bette
  5. Face Primers main ingredients are DIMETHICONE. Dimethicone is a silicone based ingredient that acts as a humectant by putting a layer over the skin to hold in moisture. The problem is unlike glycerine which is absorbed by the skin holding in moisture, dimethicone does not absorb and sits on the skin like a mask, clogging pores and breaking you out. PRIMERS WITH DIMETHICONE WILL BREAK YOU OUT! Stay away from any skincare using dimethicone, mineral oil, or propelyne glycol. They will break you out
  6. Here are the ingredients: Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Squalane, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Hydrogenated Jojoba Oil, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Polymethylmethacrylate, Silica Dimethyl Silylate Phenoxyethanol, Phenyl Trimethicone, Disodium Stearoyl Glutamate, Methylparaben, Vinyl Dimethicone/Methicone Silsesquioxane Crosspolymer, Aluminum Hydroxide, Silica, BHT, Ethylparaben, Butylparaben, Isobutylparaben, Propylparaben, May Contain (+/-): Titanium Di
  7. The thing is mica is in almost every commercial makeup line, revlon, maybelline, neutrogena, etc... Just because they do not say mineral makeup dosen't mean they are free of mica. As a matter of fact mineral makeup ingredients are usually pretty similar to traditional forms of makeup only they are usually more pure leaving out the chemicals and other irritating ingredients. I personally have found out it is usually not the mineral makeup but the brushes (need to be cleaned) that can be a problem
  8. I also had been using BP for years as this was the only thing that cleared my face up. I used neutrogena's on the spot acne treatment and it would work fairly quickly. I also heard about the cancer causing issue and it seems it is a very high cancer risk which scared me a lot. Everytime I tried anything else my face broke out again. I used tea tree, lavender, different cleanser etc and my face broke out. I also use faerie organics foundation but I started their acne kit the one with the citrus c
  9. Just to let everybody know, there are many different kind of MICAS out there, there is sercite, pearl micas, flat mica, shiny etc...... It truly depends on the purity of their mica and the type of mica used and how shiny it is etc wether or not you may be allergic to it....You may be able to use micas from one company but not another. I actually used to use BE but got itchy and broke out bad from it due to the bismuth oxychloride. Mica is a great alternative to this ingredient. I used another co
  10. I liked them at first but then I found out several things i didn't like. They made my face itch when I sweat (they use a metal/mineral in their formula called Bismuth oxychloride that is well known to cause rash, itching and irritation and can aggravate acne) They looked very greasy and shiny and I had to reapply many times throughout the day. But I did like how they looked pretty natural (if you have the right color). I have since switched to Faerie Organic's minerals as they do not use any of
  11. oh there website is www.faerieorganic.com
  12. I find my must have is Faerie Organic Minerals. I also have tried soooo many brands. Many of them are not good for your skin, they contain bismuth oxychloride which aggravated my acne and made me itch. Many of them coat their minerals with dimethicone and silicone or just have nasty fillers. Drugstore brands where the worst, BE, and many others all use the bismuth. Faerie Organic just has the purest product I have run into and I findy breakouts have gotten sooo much better since using them. They
  13. I think you would have a very hard time finding a mineral makeup without mica as this is the most popular ingredient companies use instead of Bismuth Oxychloride. Bismuth is the ingredient that causes the itchy dry irritated feeling. I haven't heard of many people having problems with Mica. The reason people have a problem with bismuth is because it is actually a processed METAL that has been mixed wit tin and copper, when it gets into your skin it causes irritation, rash, dryness and in some ca
