Over the last ten-or-so years, I’ve literally tried (what feels like) every product on the market. I’m not the easiest person to choose skincare for because I have both sensitive skin that reacts pretty harshly to many products out there - even certain laundry detergents can cause issues for me - as well as life-long acne-prone skin.

52 Things That Top My Pet Peeves List

I have a lot of issues with a lot of things. Pretty much everything irritates to on some level.
