Face rash

Hello everybody, when do you decide if a product doesn't really work for you? I recently had my hands on a propolis ampoule, I've used an ampoule with propolis as an ingredient before from a different brand and I'm using a propolis essence from the same line as the ampoule I recently got. I patch tested and there were no irritations or redness on my neck and arms where I tested. But when I incorporated the propolis ampoule on my night routine, my face got a bit red and warm. So I stopped using it and wondered that maybe it doesn't work well with the other products on my routine. The warmth and redness was gone after less than an hour, but the next morning I saw that my skin got a bit textured and developed some rash, around the mouth, on my U-line and forehead, so basically almost everywhere. I really wanted it to work so I decided to use it again after 3 days, the rash was still there btw, I just cleansed, used the ampoule and applied moisturizer, again my face got red and the rash became more visible. So I guess this is a clear sign that the product doesn't suit my skin right? P.S. can you recommend a product that can help with the rash or how long will I have this on my face? Thank you ❤️

So sorry you’re having a bad reaction 😣 It really does sound like it just doesn’t work for your skin! I’d suggest taking a break from active ingredients in the meantime and just using extra gentle skincare (ceramides are your friend!) while your skin heals. Hopefully it heals quickly! 💕

it may not be propolis itself. It can be something else in that product that might be irritating your skin. Skip actives for a while. Use other hydrating products and moisturizers. It won’t take long to disappear

That's what I thought, it can't be just propolis as I'ved used products with propolis before. Thank you, went back to my cleanse-moisturize-spf routine.

Use centella asiatica and ceramides to help your skin. And stop using this product clearly either it doesn't suit you or it doesn't go well with the other products on your routine.

Thank you, I'm on it 😊 I just added the skin1004 on my routine, I'm slowly adding back other products as I am on a strictly cleansing-moisturizing-spf routine the past few week.
