Think I had a bad reaction to Focus21 SeaPlasma All Purpose Hair & Skin Moisturizer. I sprayed some on my face before using my Quasar SP and my skin starting itching later and now it's red & blotchy. Also my face is irritated with some bumps that look like pimples. Yikes! It's either that or Bioelements Sleepwear cream(but I've used the same Test Tube sample before) I used afterward to moisturize.

I think it's the "fragrance-perfume" listed in the Focus21 ingredients. I just have to rant Shame on you : I wish companies would NOT add perfume to "natural" items! (the spray that came with the Nuface also has perfume - yucka - but at least I didn't have this reaction). I guess I'll stick with the Avene thermal water spray. Perhaps, get some rose water hydrosol in the future....

I don't think it's a reaction to the Quasar as I've used it before without issue.

i hear you. if a product is supposed to be natural, why add extra fragrance ingredients to them? i just found out that sisley products contain tonnes of preservatives.

normal to combination skin that is sensitive. cheeks have large, visible pores and flush very easily. most SAs tell me "dehydrated on the outside, oily on the inside"!
