This is Why You Should Read Labels…

Seriously, who reads labels these days?

“Oh cool, lipstick…looks cute!”

“Moisturizer, sweet! Glide that shit on.”

You always think it’s self explanatory, until it’s not.

The past few weeks, I have been trying to decide on a new foundation. So I have been back and forth from Sephora and Ulta checking everything out. Pretty much everything was way too oily for my skin. I’m thinking to myself, wft?! I then try matte oil control…still greasy. I have the skin of a jellyfish. Gross.

Anyway…the other night, I take my shower, wash my face and then apply my moisturizer (which is fairly new, was using it for 2 weeks). Well, my face starts to burn. I’m like seriously, this is hypoallergenic?!? Mind you, that I have been getting red and it has been burning for about 2 weeks but not as bad as the last time.

So I’m burning and I look at my face an hour later and I’m red. I have a legit burn on my face. I grab the bottle and start reading.

Well….it says “Moisturizer…..Mask.”Β  I’m thinking why would it say mask, it clearly says moisturizer. Then I flip to the directions and it says ‘Apply mask and leave on for 3 minutes, 1o minutes, maximum, if you are feeling really dry. Wash with warm water and pat dry with towel.’ Well fuck.

No wonder my skin has been so oily. I have been keeping a constant moisture mask on my face.

Don’t be dumb like me and end up with burn marks all over. Read labels people. I’m just happy it wasn’t as bad as it could have been.

Always,

T

  1. LOL I would have been confused too! I’ve definitely used products incorrectly before, so you’re not the only one. I was just in Sephora yesterday and totally forgot how awesome Bare Minerals is. Give it a try if you haven’t already! My skin is naturally oily so I found that product works really well for me.

    1. I know right! It’s funny that even after this happened, I started using a new face wash and didn’t read the label thoroughly as well…luckily nothing bad happened but I did waste a very expensive face wash!!!!
