No irritants. My lips don't get addicted to this like with every other lip balm. Don't have to use it more than once a day a lot of the time.

However, I recently started getting rashes every few months around the corners of my mouth since using this brand. When it happened the second time, I threw out my then tube of Badger cocoa butter lip balm (in mocha, which smelled …

I use a brand called Earthrise who make a witch hazel distillate with 0.15% methylparaben.

I'm still new to toner in my skincare regimen and so am not yet 100% sold on their importance or purpose. In any case, I rub it on after a wipe down with Lush ultrabland, wait for it to dry, and marvel. All I can say is that my skin looks unnaturally healthy after toning. Imperfections …

This stuff is great. I've been using it for well over a year now. My face has never looked so bright and healthy.

I will say that in hot weather, it feels a bit heavy. My nose started sweating through it within not too long. This may just be a reality of living in a humid continental climate, but I think I may switch to something else for the summer.

My hormone profile has been in a bit of flux since late last year. My skin was quite dry for many years but has since returned to its combination state. This means I have corners of my face that break out with my old moisturizer and yet broad patches that still dry out and look dull otherwise.

This past winter was brutal and I've gone through two other hand creams to get to this one: Neutrogena Norwegian formula something or other and L'Occitane 20% shea butter. Neither were very good at relieving dry skin in a Toronto winter. This stuff absorbs well and the effects last and it's literally green.

The only drawback to this is that cats seem to universally hate …

I broke out in hives all over my shoulders and upper torso after using this stuff. I guess it kind of worked better on my legs but not as well as the Cetaphil lotion I'd always used.
