Well as the title says, are you a glutton for beauty punishment?
I ask because 2 weekends ago, I was visiting my sister and realised I’d forgotten my facial wash. I saw the bottle of Hada Labo Tamagohada Foaming Wash in her bathroom and decided to use it. Incidentally she likes it and says it helped her skin recover from a recent breakout.
Anyway I’d told you before that I’d tracked the problem of the dry skin on my hands to this very wash but I figured using it over just 2 days would be alright.
Unfortunately, I’m now paying for my folly.
Just a day after using it, the skin on my hands started drying out and for days thereafter, are peeling like a snake shedding its skin. And my hands feel so dry! I’ve not used anything new since I got home so it had to be that.
I never seem to learn. I knew it had caused me problems before but I still went ahead and used it because its a pretty decent product otherwise.
I am also a little allergic to Shu Uemura eyeshadows – my lids feel weird a couple of hours after wearing them – yet I have a few I can’t give up and which I do wear from time to time, despite the discomfort because the colours are quite irreplaceable.
Just call me a glutton for punishment 😛 Do you have a similar story to share? Have you done anything like this – know that a beauty product might cause an adverse reaction yet you go ahead and use it anyway? Or am I alone in this insanity? 😛
