After thinking about this since I joined the forum the worst product I ever used was AVEEDA SHAMPURE. It made my scalp so dry it flaked and flaked ... I ended up with a scalp problem that took months to fix, it was like I had washed in acid...I had a really bad reaction to something in it..anyone else had a problem with this shampoo ?....I was OK ish with the rosmary shampoo...and I love their Damage Remedy conditioner.

He thought it couldn't be good putting something with so much alcohol(toner) on my face. As for the soap, he thought even though I watched my hands before using it, there's still the off chance I tainted it every time I use and the soap was left in a soap box with no drainage.

Worst product for me is Nair.

I tried it once on my legs and followed the directions accurately. I didn't put it on longer than indicated, but my legs BURNED and I immediately washed it off. The next day I developed these rashes/sores on them that looks all red and disgusting. It took a long time for them to disappear and I had to avoid those spots when I shaved. Never again! Sad

Looking through review sites, I found that this happened to some people, but lots didn't react this way. I wonder why? I don't think I have sensitive skin anyway.

Strivectin...did nothing for my skin but make it greasy and congested.

The super-expensive La Mer cream...gave me horrible acne, even in the eye area! (I'm 30+ with dry skin)

MAC lip pencils give me chapped, flaking lips if I color in the whole lip area with them.

Stila cosmetics are fine, but I really hate the cardboard packaging! Before you've used up the product, the outside of it has gotten sodden and mucky, so you have to hide it because it looks so bad. Or maybe I'm the only messy girl who ends up with gross Stila!

And Neutrogena sunscreens make my eyes tear and burn so bad i've almost wrecked my car.

N.V. Perricone's Active Tinted Moisturizer with sunscreen, SPF 15

Look for a review with all of the gory details soon. I've been looking for a new HG foundation/tinted moisturizer all year. This is one I've tried. It's bad. Very bad.

I tried using Christian Dior make-up and it broke me out in hives. Granted, I've always had really sensitive skin but tried using it several times to see if it was me rather than the make up and I always broke out after using this make-up line.... Crying or Very sad

I agree, the number 2 toner is just like alcohol to me, but it claims no alcohol at all Sad

Mac studio is a good powder and it covers well, but after sometime i notice that it breaks me out. Maybe i do not clean my skin well or it settles in my pores. I love their eye and lip shades.

and by the way

dont expect to get rid of ur spots

its actually increasing the risk of more comedones!!!!

and this is not an option for those who have a dry skin type!
u might end up with dehydrating!!!!!

omgosh, I just recently switched off of clinique. I've been using it for ages and my mom swears by it too! I heard about how bad the ingredients inside are and i'm trying to convince my mom to get off it too. it made my skin so dry and it seriously felt like my face was falling off after I toned and cleansed... now i realize it's b/c of the harsh chemicals.
i've switched to a fully organic vitamin c cleanser and cream now and my skin feels so much better already!

I used this once back in high school and when I applied it I felt like my fingers were burning. LOL afterwards there was this little hold in my index finger... like an actual hole.. it burned through my skin!

I agree with the Elizebath Arden's cleansing cream, doesn't smell good. It doesn't clean very well, seems to leave lots of residue.

I used to use Clinique, but the toner is just too harsh, my skin got very dry. My husband used to use the soap and lotion, but since I let him tried a sample of the Kiehl's cream, he never want to go back to Clinique anymore.

clinique has had a bad reputation for years!!!
For me it is the dermalogica range. Still trying to tackle the awful breakout from using the products I got for my birthday in AUGUST!! Everytime I touch the stuff it brings me out in pimples.

Since August? That is a long time. Do you think it might related to some hormonal change?
