Any tips? I'm getting to the age where I wouldn't mind a bit of make up to perk me up on an off day - I have Clarins (bought for my wedding day) but even that irritates my skin within an hour, and I certainly could not wear it regularly.
I've never been able to wear Clarins. After nmy most recent sensitive/eczematic bout (they tend to last a few years), I discovered Lavera. Not a huge range, but the grey eyeliner is good, and the skin creams. Look online for stockists.
I use Clinique Repair Wear foundation but have also used Dewy Smooth and another one in the range for dry skin- sorry the name escapes me.
I currently cleanse with L'Oreal for mature skins, but that's my budget option- I prefer REN cleanser for sensitive skin. I use Clinique super defence moisturise and City Block sun screen every day all year round. And their Anti Gravity eye cream.
At night I use REN frankinsence repair cream or their Omega 3 Serum.
Clinique gave me a red rash and made my skin itch. I wanted to get samples of Bare Minerals today as lots of people rave about it but I stood by the counter for ages and the sales assistant served three other people first. I think I'm invisible despite my eight month pg bump!!!
If you find any make up that works without irritating the skin, let me know!
