L'OREAL products called L'Oreal Kids Shampoo that feature Fruity Apricot, Watermelon, and CHERRY ALMOND- contain almond extract, so there is also a risk of cross contamination with other products

Thank you soooooooooooo much for mentioning L'Oreal products. I started using these make-up products last summer. Lipstick, powder, concealer, eye shadow , lipliner, revitalift eye and face and eye defense. I checked last night. No wonder I started getting swollen eyes and face and hands since last summer. Mostly all of their products contain peanut oil. This is the reaction that finally lead me a couple of weeks ago to go to an allergist and I am allergic to peanuts. I was using the revita lift eye and eye defense to get rid of my swollen eyes "rubbing it into and around my eyes" which escalated my problem. For the past two days I have felt so much better! No more L'Oreal for me. Thanks a bunch!

Hi all
We've just started getting this L'Oreal shampoo here in UK recently and I have been plagued by friends saying how good it is but, noticed that the red bottle had almonds as content so suspicious of the rest.
Stick to plain baby shampoo for now!!

My son uses the L'oreal kids 2-in-1 shampoo in Burst of Banana-Melon and has not had any problems with it.

A few months ago I called L'oreal to ask them about the almonds in their shampoo, they said that people with nut allergies should not use any of their shampoo. Since I do not know if Justin is allergic to anything other than peanuts - I have not used it. I am surprised about the revita lift eye cream - I use it - I guess I won't be using it anymore.

Hi Donna,
My son tested negative to almonds which explains why he hasn't reacted to the L'oreal Shampoo in the Banana/Melon fragrance.
You are right about the possible cross-contamination with their shampoo's. I should have noted in my earlier post that Cam is not allergic to almonds and I shouldn't have implied that the shampoo is safe for everyone.
Stay Safe!
