Skin Sensitive to Elysee
I have found that Elysee serums work well, but are pretty harsh on my skin. Does anybody else have this problem, & have any recommendations on what to do about it?
I have used SCA for years, & it does wonders on my skin, but I’ve had some problems with some of the newer ingredients in that brand as well.
I have some Elysee left over from a kit that I bought a while back, & started using it again. Maybe I shouldn’t have
ordered the TS that was on the other day, but i did. Maybe I’m just one of those people that doesn’t learn. LOL
Thank you everybody, for all of your suggestions. So sorry it’s taken me so long to get back to this, but it has been a busy week for me, including a death in the family.
Meezergeezer’s post gave me a lightbulb moment. I am also sensitive to gluten, etc.
LOL Kemiqueen, yes, I have been seeing good results. Actually, I’m allergic to pretty much the “whole world”, even toothpaste. Fabrics, grasses, everything!
I have figured out that these products don’t bother me as much if I use them separately, rather than
as suggested (multiple at a time). The aqua colored one is wonderful. (Can’t think of the names of the products right now, & since they’re upstairs & at the other end of the house….lol)
It’s the brownish-orangy one that creates the welts, etc.
I’ve used Adrienne’s Argon Oil for a long time now. It feels heavenly when I put it on. Actually, I love almost ALL of SCA’s products. It’s just that, as the years have gone by, with newer ingredients added to them, some are too strong for me.
I think I will just continue to alternate these products. I normally don’t “mix” my product lines too much, as I feel it “confuses” my skin.
Again, thanks everybody! 🙂
I also have hsd excellent results with this oil that I got off Amazon –
InstaNatural Organic Argan Oil – For Face, Hair, Body & Nails – Pure & Certified Organic Cold Pressed Argan Oil of Morocco – For Acne, Stretch Marks, Dry Scalp, Cuticle & Moisturized Skin – 4 OZ – it is inder $20. The oil has not gotten funky smelling like Josie’s argan oil has.
Check the ingredients to make sure it had not been cut with some other oil. I scour ingredient deck because of my allergies.
I like Josie Maran’s whipped argon oil. I use the unscented version in the 19 oz version when she has it. She now has one specifically for the face, but the body version seems to be like a Swiss Army knife very useful body butter for body, hands and face.
The other thing I liked with the whipped body butter seems the argon oil is more shelf stable. I noticed after a while my liquid argon oil would oxidize snd get funky smelling. The whipped oil does not break down.
I like Elysee and took advantage of their wonderful TSV. I hadn’t used it for a while since I developed wheat and gluten allergies..
I scanned through the ingredients and ordered the products.
Unfortunately I should have read the list of ingredients more carefully – toward the end of the ingredient listing was “wheat”
I have Celiac DH – where I break out in a terrible rash. Thank God that did not happen though I did get quiet red.
I am thankful for HSN’s return policy.
Heavy sigh – wish Elysee would have a wheat/gluten free version – and no parabens…
I will stick with my argon oil…
Elysee is very gentle on my skin. If u cannot see a doc, which is the best idea, as suggested, u need to narrow it down to find out which, if not all, the products r bothersome.
Start w a MILD cleanser. Apply only Pycnogenol and a MILD moisturizer on top for a few days, if tolerable, and then assess.
Then use Line Diminishing Gel by itself for a few days and assess. Then use only Resurrection Serum for a few days and assess. Do this w every product that may be bothersome.
Next, use 2 serums that passed the test together and assess. If they irritate ur skin when used together, then alternate them and assess.
Ultimately, all 3 serums in the TS can be cocktailed (mix a pump of each together) if tolerable.
Good luck and let us know!
I don’t have any experience with the brand and I hesitate to try others because I have developed allergies from ingredients in beauty products.
I recommend having a dermatologist do patch testing to see what you are sensitive to. It will help you to know what ingredients you need to avoid. I hope this helps you.
