Hi, I was glad to see the message on this list about possible allergies to Bare Escentuals. I am pretty allergy-prone, so will make sure to test first. I wonder if anyone knows what of many ingredients I might be allergic to in Clinique's anti gravity eye cream? There are a lot, and I'd really like to avoid buying anything with whatever it is in the future. Here is the list of ingredients: Water (aqua purificata) purified, butyrospermum parkii (shea butter), cetearyl alcohol, butylene glycol, hydrogenated polyisobutene, phenyl trimethicone, cyclomethicone, polyglyceryl-3 beeswax, cetyl esters, polybutene, sucrose, polymethyl methacrylate, isostearyl neopentanoate, glycerin, cetearyl glucoside, tocopheryl acetate, milk protein (lactis proteinum), whey protein (lactis proteinum), squalane, gentiana lutea (gentian) extract, cholesterol/potassium sulfate, phytosphingosine, yeast extract (faex), cholesterol, betula alba (birch) extract, camellia sinensis (green tea) extract, salvia officinalis (sage) powder, magnesium ascorbyl phosphate, sodium hyaluronate, hordeum vulgare (barley) extract, linoleic acid, triticum vulgare (wheat) germ extract, alcaligenes polysaccharides, hydrogenated lecithin, ascorbic acid, guanidine carbonate, arginine, glycine, lysine, acetyl glucosamine, methyl glucose sesquistearate, polysilicone-11, stearic acid, acrylates/c10-30 alkyl acrylate crosspolymer, disodium phosphate, dimethicone, aminomethyl propanol, disodium edta, sodium dehydroacetate, phenoxyethanol, methylparaben, titanium dioxide, mica.

You would have to go to your allergy specialist and have them test you for each ingredient, I don't think anyone here would be able to diagnose or know if you are allergic to any specific ingredient.

If you just want to try it, Clinique usually lets you sample any product.
