This will give you the actual scary break down of what's in your product. And don't be fooled by a low score of "1," you'd be surprised to see what the breakdown actually looks like. The above screen shot is one that I created from "Build your own report" and not verified by EWG. And yes, sigh, it is for my Algenist Serum. When I first read that, I thought, "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!" My first review, I got past my purge period to start actually liking the product, and now THIS. I'm still debating on whether I'll finish the bottle or return it to Sephora.
The way I see it, you have to weigh the pros and cons of your product, then decide if it's worth keeping or not. I have an overnight Retinol treatment that helps keep my skin clear that scored a 5. I decided to try to look for something that will work just as well with a lower score, but continue using my product until I find my green, holy grail treatment product. No break out vs. my health, I pick not breaking out. Kidding! But I know that breaking out can lower your self-esteem and make you feel terribly self-conscious, so each individual has to make that decision for themselves. I'm just here to give you information and help you in any way I can. =)
