mascara for sensitive skin
A bit of background: For years I used Clinique mascara due to skin sensitivities. Then about 18 months ago, I got sick of spending the $$ so I switched to cheaper brands. I've tried a few, all of which you can buy at Target, and they all bug the skin under my eyes. So I switched back to Clinique and, for the first time ever it's bothering my skin.
Then last week, our local news reported that as of Jan. 1, Minnesota was prohibiting the sale of mascara with mercury in it. Light bulb moment - maybe I'm allergic to mercury. This week I called the Clinique customer service line and was told "no, our mascaras don't contain mercury". (I don't even want to know why chemicals like mercury are used in products meant for the area of one's eyes!!!).
Does anyone have any suggestions of brands that REALLY are hypo-allergenic? I'm fed up with the slight burning sensation that occurs each and every time I use the stuff. Thanks for any ideas.
