The ones I have on my not to buy is are Clinque, Perricone (way too expensive) and SKINN. I found SKINN horrible for my face and the makeup went on and off within an hour!! Waste of money.

Generally, I won't buy anything contains mineral oil. And I won't buy any Arcona products. I am not impressed by their toner, white ice and tabula rasa. They are pricy. And I don't like the packaging, either.

There is no one product or company that particularly irriates my skin...although many that dont produce results. However I have stayed away from all products bar one that contain SLS or any nasty sulphates, just dont do well with me. I do use Nioxin shampoo but that helps with hair loss so what do ya do..

Perricone - waste, waste, waste!
Strivectin - in fact after switching to spa lines, I slapped some STrivectin on one day as a quick moisturizer and my skin reacted with spots and yuck!!!! Crying or Very sad
Kinerase - I so wanted to love anything Courtney Cox uses (and don't you wonder if she really does?), but nothing, nothing, nothing
Clinique - but that was ions ago when I was much younger
BE MMU - never knew I had that many pores and that many lines until I used BE MMU -- much better for younger, unlined, poreless skin
Kiehls - love the concept, but no results
and Lauder, Perscriptives, Shiseido, Origins -- I so want to love these -- the marketing beckons as I walk past, but been there, done that and wish I had the $$$$$$'s back to buy a new BMW. That would put a smile on my face and take years off.

Hi KD. Can you share your experience with Perricone products? Thanks.

anything from the 302 line - over hyped IMO and made my face breakout no matter what I tried. Sorry but my skin looks great using my old routine

Clinique and Lancome skincare products.
Although I am still using Clinique Mascara recently, Clinique skincare are really too normal and gentle that could do none effect on my skin.

I'll say Arbonne for one- their cleanser that has strawberry was very harsh and drying for me.
Their sunscreen was nice- but not $50 nice.

I have a $20 face sunscreen that is all natural and just as good or well-better.

Benefit products- sucky products and crappy customer service.
their concealer just slides off my face and makes me break out- even in dry areas I used it on.
the "eyecon" eye cream left me a chemical burn in the eye area.

their liquid blush is nice, but not for $35.
it is just water and food dye from the grocery store.
I can buy red dye for $2 and it is just as good! Rolling Eyes

Burts Bees. Violent allergic reactions to most of their creams. So bad there should be a warning on the label, not a bunch of empty promises about how natural it is.

Most products available at the department store as they tend to contain harsh chemicals with nothing beneficial at all in them. I really dont like Loreal products.

I'll add my vote for perricone..which when I used for a while it was... WAY over priced. I really won't pay crazy money for the hope of looking younger anymore. I think perricone made a play for the demographic who could afford his line..and I had to smile when I saw is lower price line come out at sephora this year. LIke he has bilked all the richer women..now lets play to the "common" girl. I will also say strevectin made me look older..I hated that stuff.
But all in all.. when you can buy retin A, cp's , and medical grade peels online all for around 50 bucks each..and all them WORK -- why would you do anything different? Not to mention the diy gadgets that are almost as good as laser services too!

Something in Bobbi Brown's foundation made most of my face break out in a red, raised itchy bumpy rash that lasted for about a week after using it once or twice. It happened with the moisturizing balm (about five years ago) and most recently with the tinted moisturizer, which was a shame since I loved the texture.

For some reason, any skin care products formulated with spring water make my skin very itchy. So Vichy is a big no-no for me.

Anything with menthol/mint causes eczema on my skin.

Silicones clog my pores. I avoid skin care products with silicones, but canít avoid them completely in makeup.

LíOreal skin care, the few that Iíve tried made my skin break out in hives.

I also try to avoid skin care with ingredients that are way too long and with tons of chemicals that I canít even pronounce.

1. Clinique toners - too drying
2. Philosophy Hope in a Jar - pimples galore
3. Philosophy Purity Made Simple - pimples galore
4. Origins skincare (except the sulfur mask and the rice scrub) - useless
5. Loccitane skincare - useless

Have you tried anything else of Neostrata?
They have some nice eye creams in the Canadian line- they are fragrance free, no acids and no dyes. good for very sensitive skin!
but I don't think they are sold in the US.

Also I'm a big fan of the Neostrata 10% vitamin C cream "capsules".

-have never tried the cleansers.
their toning solution is very harsh,doubt I will rebuy that.

For off my list I will add Clinique toner- they seem to be just a ton of alcohol.

another item is Revlon cream eyeshadow- they come in a pan w 5 circles of different shades and they wear off in minutes, just a sucky product.

I can't remember the names of the products i used. The company sent me a heap of free samples & within a few days my skin was freaking out. I went from having clear skin to a face full of pimples. Their products might be alright for those with oily skin but i think they stripped my already dry/dehydrated skin.

Dear god, I never knew there was so much hate against Clinique before reading this thread. My sisters used to be Clinique junkies, though I remember they used to break out a lot, just like some others have complained here.

I almost wonder if the company engineered these products that way on purpose, just so that their clients keep coming back for more remedies, not aware they are making the situation worse the whole time :P

I've seen so many horrible, and out-right scam products in my time, I wouldn't even know where to start a list.
