You know, the Benefit purchase may have been premature. They are really expensive, and I actually can't afford to buy them, but I felt so pretty after she did the make-over, and I have a new boyfriend, and I gave in to my desire to look pretty for him. I did look up all of the ingredients in the stick make-up on my Sage list of comedogenicity of ingredients and none of the ingredients came up as cloggers, but on the other hand, it doesn't actually say "non-comedogenic" or "non-acnegenic" on the box. The Dr. Feelgood balm does have one ingredient, "isosteryl neopentanoate", which is a "3" on the Sage scale (5 being the worst). It is 6 ingredients down in the list, and it is one of a whole lot ingredients (like 15?), so maybe it's not a big concern. I have gotten one bump (it's not inflamed or infected or anything at this point) pop up since using the Benefit stuff. The saleslady said she was a professional aesthetician, had cystic acne herself, and swore up and down to me that the products were oil-free and wouldn't make me break out. Neither of them have an SPF factor listed, though, so I'll need to use a sunscreen under the make-up (I have one by Olay). Time will tell how my skin reacts to the stuff. My skin is so dry right now from the Differin gel that using the La Bella Donna loose powder make-up kind of accentuates that. The Benefit products are not really that moist or dewy, either though. They both give a matte appearance. The Dr. Feelgood says on the container to use it over make-up to kind of "fix" it and matte it and give the skin a smoother appearance. She used it under the make-up during the make-over. Benefit products are sold at Macy's and at Sephora's. They also have their own website on the internet (I can't give you the name, but look up Benefit Cosmetics.)
