Default Acne from Batia/Aleeza Gel, Devachan One C, JoiWhip?

Has anyone gotten noticeable breakouts from these (even if the One C was not used as a leave-in)?

I haven't from the B&A gel and OC. Never tried JoiWhip.

I also reviewed the ingreds of the B&A gel and OC (none available for JoiWhip). There weren't any cosmogenic ingreds listed.

Maybe it's an allergy.

I find myself breaking out on my upper back - I am not sure, now that you posted, maybe it is the One C.

I got major breakouts when I tried JoiWhip about a month ago and I'm still recovering.

Hair is pretty great now that it's colder, now I'm focusing on my skin. Sniffle.

I'm so sorry you have had reactions to all of those products.

My sister in law broke out in hives ALL over her body and scalp after using Joico shampoo and conditioner. They were so bad that she had to go to the emergency room! Needless to say, she doesn't use anything by Joico anymore. She hasn't had any problems with products from Redken, L'Oreal, Garnier, Back to Basics, Neutrogena, kms, or others. I can't remember what other brands she uses. She's a worse product junkie than I am

I hope you track down which ingredient is bothering you.

Please take care-

I love and use deva curl one c as my main conditioner. I also love and rotate using B&A gel as well as Joico joiwhip mousse. I have never had any problems with these products causing acne ever. wonder why it happens to some and not to others..... I rarely let my wet hair touch my skin once out of the shower, always use a towel on my back or robe... I use proactiv on my face for 6+ years and dove soap. I always wash my skin after rinsing out my conditioner. I don't rinse my one c out *all* the way though. good luck!
