I’ve been really thinking about the whole issue of allergies since seeing the new Clinique nail polishes, formulated for sensitive skins. I read more and more about people who are allergic to SPF which is basically a bit of an anti-ageing nightmare. With just about every single foundation or BB containing SPF, and many, many day creams with SPF as standard, if you have an allergy to SPF you are well and truly stuck.
I came across Kelly Edwards skin care, and it’s quite unusual in that one of its USPs is that there is no SPF, which means if you have allergies and have found one SPF that works for you and doesn’t set your allergies off, whether it’s a physical or chemical block, then you can use it combination with a hydrator that’s SPF free.
I like the ingredient listing as well in the (shown) Combination Skin Moisturiser – again, combination skin is another skin issue that isn’t that well catered for. Key ingredients include Rosehip, Jojoba, Vitamin E, Vitamin A and Aloe Vera. It’s all formulated by Kelly Edwards who suffered from acne, eczema and psoriasis, so I guess you can’t really hope for someone who understands difficult conditions better.
Products seem to be well-priced, and nastie-free as well as being made in small batches in Wales. The site in general is very informed and informative and well worth checking out if your skin is super sensitive or acting up. You can find it HERE.
