Things That Broke Me Out

I don’t see posts like this too often, so I thought I’d share products that have broken me out. I may or may not be able to pinpoint what exactly broke me out, but I do know that when I’ve removed the product – the horrible acne breakouts go away. So, here’s my list.


  • Missha FTE {have no idea, but I’m bummed  I suspect it was the galactomyces}
  • Kose Softymo Deep Cleansing Oil {it was the mineral oil}
  • Innisfree Green Tea Balancing Lotion {maybe fragrance; I also may have been over-hydrating my face}
  • Laneige Water Sleeping Mask {no specific ingredient known, but I had pimples on my face the morning after. It’s been demoted to body lotion}
  • Cosrx AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid {Unfortunately, this caused me to breakout with cystic acne the next morning;  glycolic acid }
  • Etude House Pink Vital Water toner, serum, emulsion {no clue as to what ingredient broke me out, but I woke up the next day with acne}
  • Ingredient: ANYTHING SOY/SOYBEAN! {Apparently, I get cystic acne when I use a product with soy anything in it. :/}

If you have also broken out from these products, please do let me know the ingredients that have triggered your acne! Knowing is only half the battle, ya know wink.
