I seem to have developed a reaction to my eye make up. After I take it off my eyelids seem to be very dry and they appear red and swollen the next morning. I don't wear much make up, I just apply a bit more for work (2 days a week).
I wear Estée Lauder mascara which is fine, but I've tried their eyeshadow and Max Factors both of which I seem to get this reaction to.
I can't use lancome bi-facils either and they keep giving me the stuff as a gift with purchase or it comes with their mascara. My dd uses it so it doesn't go to waste. I suspect that it's whatever eye makeup remover you are using too.
Yes to the baby shampoo. I was told that by the doctors when my eyelids were so dry, crispy and swallow. I then went out and bought The Body Shop Aloe Vera range. It restores your skins natural defenses. After about 2 weeks my eyes were almost better.
There is a pigment called Chromium Oxide that is in lots of eye make up especially mascara and eyeliner and anything with a dark/black/green colour. It's a common allergen that you could have developed an allergy too? Urban Decay and Laura Mercier brands are generally chromium-free so worth a go.
