How do I test products to determine if my skin is sensitive to them?

We recommend you test products using the following instructions for three days, three times a day:

  1. Apply a small amount of the product on your jawline or neck. If you’re testing a cleanser, apply it for 30 seconds, and then rinse it off.
  2. Apply each product on a separate area. When you test again, reapply the products in the same area as originally applied.
  3. Watch for any signs of redness, dryness, irritation or swelling.

If you determine you are sensitive to a product, discontinue use. You may want to consider consulting your physician for further testing to determine whether your skin may be sensitive to certain ingredient(s) so that you may avoid using products containing that ingredient in the future.
