5 CULT SKINCARE PRODUCTS THAT MIGHT BE BREAKING YOU OUT

Cult Skincare Products That Might Be Breaking You Out

As pretty as these products might look sitting on your counter top, the aesthetically-pleasing packaging might not do the same glow-up for your skin. Especially if you have acne-prone or sensitive skin, consider if these belong in your stash.

5 CULT SKINCARE PRODUCTS THAT MIGHT BE BREAKING YOU OUT

Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Facial Toner – This toner contains a heavy amount of angelica keiskei extract and rosa damascena flower oil, both used as fragrances, that can cause sensitivity and irritation in the skin. Although, those aren’t the only fragrances in the ingredients list: PEG-40 hydrogenated castor oil and citric acid are also included. For this marketed as a “hydration facial toner”, the quantity of fragrances added could, in turn, dry out your skin.

St. Ives Apricot Scrub – The exfoliate in this scrub is walnut shell powder—which is actually small shards of walnut shells. The texture of walnut shells can be abrasive and harsh on the skin, potentially causing small micro-tears.

Try InsteadSkin Script Raspberry Refining Scrub

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask – Although there are hydrating properties in this mask, the alcohol and fragrance (also included) can cause skin sensitization. As this is formulated to “hydrate” and “perfect” your skin overnight, these harmful additives can overpower the beneficial ingredients that make this product so appealing. Instead, opt for a mask that is free of these.

Try InsteadAztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Mask

Mario Badescu Facial Spray With Aloe, Herbs & Rosewater – This facial mist contains an overwhelming amount of fragrance as well as synthetic and fragrant extracts: thymus vulgaris extract, gardenia florida fruit extract, citronellol, and geraniol. Due to these being in such high concentrate, this spray can be extremely irritating.

Coconut Oil – Coconut oil is one of those holy-grail, natural products that is beneficial for a variety of uses. As groundbreaking of a natural moisturizer it is—as well as having anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties—use it on your body instead. If used on the face, it can clug your pores, especially if you are acne-prone.
