Any Neutrogena, Clinique, Estee Lauder or Clean & Clear products.
Skinceuticals Phyto+ (useless)
Physicians Formula mmu (horrific reaction with skin)
Dianne Yvonne Exfol Serum (did nothing for me)
There is probably more but that's what I can think up right now

I'm 56 and just starting to know what my skin is all about! My no-nos are Clinique, Avon, Aveeno, L'Oreal, Decleor and MAC skinline. I'm prone to milia so have wasted tons of money on assorted products! Have aging skin that is prone to extreme dryness and yet when I use creams I break out and get more milia. I'm using Dr. H sample kit right now, and think my skin looks the best ever, after starting to recover from a number of Paula's Choice products that I've been using for 6 months. I think my skin does better without exfoliation and Vit C. With PC, I was a dry, flaking mess! Time will tell whether Dr. H is for me, but I am leaning more towards natural skincare every day.

Chanel skincare---too fragranced, and for the price not worth the $$. Also irritates my eyes.

for me, any injectables are no-no.

Prescriptives skin care--useless. Shiseido The Skincare--lovely scent, nice textures, but useless. Paula's Choice BHA liquid--gives me bumps. Olay Regenerist serum--breaks me out.

I also agree that EL's Idealist is useless, as are the myriad silicone-based products that claim to have a treatment component. They can make skin look better temporarily, but it's just that: temporary.

Oh my... I have a MILLION, but I can only remember a few that have either really stood out because of a big zit/breakout or some other horror of a catastrophe!

Anyway, here it goes...

La Mer (the biggest zit on cheek..EVER! Still have a mark.)
Clinique 3Step (so HARSH)
Clinique (old school) salicylic foundation (what a mess!)
MAC lipglosses (sigh...alas, they are beautiful, but they dry out my lips!? Very odd.)
I'll update with others----for some reason, I can't remember.

Cheers!

I'm allergic to whatever is in Prevage. I also don't like strong perfumy lotion.

Hydroderm!
3-min lift (or was it 7 min?) from Athena - Gosh, that was disgusting. Made you look like you put plaster on your face.
