I have been recently getting a minor face rash/ red
Patient :I have been recently getting a minor face rash/ red irritation on spots I use these two products :
Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque- Ingredients: Water, Kaolin, Bentonite (CI 77004), Glycerin, Zinc Oxide, Propylene Glycol, Sulfur, Chromium Oxide Green (CI#77288), Fragrance (Parfum), Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben
CVS refreshing toner- Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Alcohol Denat., Butylene Glycol, Dipotassium Phosphate, Panthenol, Potassium Phosphate, Citric Acid, Benzophenone-4, Disodium EDTA, Salicylic Acid, Urea, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, PPG-26-Buteth-26, Rosa Centifolia Flower Water, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Citrate, Red 4, Red 33, Fragrance.
I would like to know if there are ingredients that don't 'mesh' well between these two products? Why am I having this reaction suddenly? (I feel as though I haven't experienced this before, but I could be wrong, I noticed it in the mirror before I 'felt' anything) I don't have sensitive skin, fragrance and the like has never bothered me before. Also- using these products alone do not make my face red... it's only if I use the toner after I have washed off the Masque. I am 22 years old, female, mild acne, oily T-zone area...Please help?
The rash does go away within maybe 10 minutes or less, but I would rather not risk any potentially worse things if I'm not careful.
Symptoms: Red marks. VERY small puffy-ness where two products were placed
