My friends raved about Benefit cosmetics, and the packaging/products looked so nice. I purchased from the U.S.A website and couldn't wait to try them. I used the Dr Feelgood and Erase paste and my skin reacted badly. The Dr Feelgood balm, it made my skin weep and the Erase paste left a big welt where I had applied it and then it turned into a big red mark that took ages to disappear. (tho my friend has no problems using this concealer)

I was so disappointed that my skin reacted badly and so wanted these products to work for me. Darn my sensitive skin! I guess not everything works for everyone?
