Beware “40 Carrots” Skincare

October 22, 2010 at 9:22 pm in Fashion & Beauty by Lisa Mallett

A VN expert recommended the skincare line “40 Carrots” recently in a featured article. I just wanted to warn others I tried it and have had an extreme reaction (first time ever in my life – I have no allergies and have never had a problem with any other skincare). I can only assume I am sensitive to retinol. I now have dry, red, scaly, sunburned-feeling skin on my face and my eye area (from the cleanser) has been severely swollen for 2 days (despite ceasing use immediately, the symptoms have not abated). My advice is to proceed with caution, especially if you don’t know how your skin handles retinol.
