"Oh, you have rosacea--let me steer you to the natural/probiotic/hypoallergenic range"

edited January 2014 in Ask the Beauty Brains
I am looking for a good foundation.  Because I have sensitive skin, I will need to cast a wide net to find a product that agrees with me.  I don't want to limit myself to only certain brands.  But when I go in Sephora, I sometimes have a hard time getting them to match me in a foundation that isn't considered either "natural" or "hypoallergenic."  Am I mistaken, or are "natural" and "hypoallergenic" really marketing terms that are not useful?  And any tips on arguing them out of only showing me bare minerals or Clinique products much appreciated.  Aaargh.  


  • You're correct that "natural" and "hypoallergenic" are terms which are more driven by marketing than true science. Personally I think it's a waste of time trying to argue with sales people on points such as this. 
  • Thanks for weighing in!
