If you know me at all, you’ll know I’m sensitive to just about every allergen and chemical on the planet, except dog dander, ironically.
But when I started wearing make up at 13, what was I to do? I reacted to most brands, leaving my face puffy and my eyes bloodshot. The answer? Clinique®!
Clinique® brand has never let me down. Every product is allergy tested and fragrance free (except the perfume, of course). Plus, Clinique® has the darker color shades of lipstick I prefer. And best of all, I’ve never experienced the dreaded “oh-no-I-can’t-wear-this-anymore” red face in the mirror followed by emptying my make up bag into the garbage can.
The formulation of Clinique® make up is also very even and I love watching for new products to be released. The most recent? Nail polish for sensitive skin that also doesn’t have a smell that irritates your eyes…I’m going to have to try that!
Since today is all about “sensitivity” here’s the Latin jazz standard “How Insensitive” sung by Astrud Gilberto.
