I would like to know if anyone has had any reactions to the Clinique makeup foundation lipstick and blush. (The lady at the counter told me that there are no nut products oils ect in the makeup but there is almond oil in the face creams.) Would just like to know if anyone with PA/TNA has had a good experience with Clinique? Or if someone has had a reaction to it also? Thank You!

I have used the Clinique 3 step skin care line for years without any problems. I have also used their lipsticks and blushes (creme and powder) w/o issue. I am PA and TNA.

My mom is sensitive to a lot of perfumes/makeups, as well as to goat's milk. When she was in her 20's, Clinique came out with makeup for sensitive skin. The makeup person assured my mom that it was for very sensitive skinned people, and that it wouldn't bother her. It literally burned my mom's skin, she still has little scars on her face from this makeup. My mom isn't allergic to PN/TN but she sure was allergic to something (maybe goats milk was in it)that was in their makeup. This was almost 25 years ago, and I know a lot has changed since then, but I was just letting you know!

Hi ...
Clinique is owned by Estee Lauder, did you know that?? I don't know about their makeup, but I know that many of their skincare products (as with just about every skincare product on the market) contain ingredients that are actually damaging for our skin -- things like lemon, eucalyptus, and peppermint. They seem like "natural" ingredients, but they are very drying. Peppermint can cause allergic reactions and rashes, for example.
I know this doesn't answer your question about the makeup, but I just wanted to point out that even "top of the line" companies have things to hide! If you're reacting to a makeup, I would stop using it, plain and simple.

I spoke to estee lauder 2 times in thepast 6 weeks and they said for each and everyone one of estee Lauder and Clinique products I must call them and they will cjeck with their chemist for the details. Many Many contain peanut and not oils. The 3 creams that I called about for my mom had macadamia and almond oil in them but one was nut and peanut free. Nevertheless i through them all out and my mom is going to use a different brand. So far I have found and anopther brand the safest. I will post more later because it is kids dinner time.

I use Clinique dramatically different mosituring lotion and it is fine for me. I do not have peanut or tree nut allergies (sensitivity but not allergy) but am allergic to fragrances. Clinque is the ONLY product I can use. This past summer I wasn't able to get to the city to buy some Clinque and decided to buy a high priced "fragrance free" product from Shoppers Drug Mart, had the worst reaction in years!! I was able to get my money back b/c of my reaction to the product.
