Broke out in a horrific rash all over my face
Sampled

I rarely write reviews, and am typically thrilled with all of my Birchbox samples and full-sized counterparts, but this I feel compelled to share.

After applying this WaterDrench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream, my cheeks and under eye area began to get red. I dismissed it (I mean, it's hyaluronic acid, I figured it might tingle), but within an hour my forehead was covered in a bumpy rash. The next morning I woke up looking like an MMA fighter post-fight: my eyelids, eye sockets, and under eye area were so swollen that my eyelashes were barely visible-- they were engulfed by my puffy eyelids. My entire face was covered in a rash of hard bumps. The doctor prescribed steroids for an allergic reaction. One week later the bumps are almost gone...ONE WEEK! I will clarify that I do not have any topical allergies, and have never had an allergic reaction like this in my life-- and I'm 42, so I've got a couple of years of experience with skin creams!
