Remember the name girls.. ISOPROPYL MYRISTATE. Especially for those with prone to breakout and/or sensitive skin like me. Check the cosmetics or skin care ingredients before purchasing.
This chemical used in cosmetics to helps cosmetics apply more smoothly and gives them a slicker and sheer feel. Isopropyl Myristate has been shown to show a comedogenic and irritability to users with acne-prone and sensitive. You can read here.
As for my real experiences, yes! I got sudden breakout and blackhead became worst. So now, I always read the ingredients label and from past experiences, I know what my skin can and can't accept and read a lot about chemical effects to my skin type. FYI, my skin is combination and sensitive.
Not all the skin care range is suitable with our skin type. For example, I'm using "X" brand for my cleanser, toner and moisturizer.Hell..I wanted to use their essence as well since it is highly rated but I just can't when I checked its ingredients. It contained Isopropyl Myristate!
So, always check the label even though the brand is highly rated. Every skins are different!
