I think these things are all VERY individual. I actually do much better with the natural products.
Me too, actually - I'm allergic to everything, including myself, but the more 'natural' stuff in a product, the less likely it is to cause problems for me. "Hypoallergenic" products often cause me problems (not full-fledged hives, but they normally just make me itchy), whereas something loaded with EOs and so forth doesn't faze my skin in the slightest. This is backwards of the norm... I suppose I'm lucky?
