Comparing ingredients.

I sampled a lush moisturiser called Celestial, actually it was quite nice. below are just some of the ingredients you will find in what i use to use oil of Olay and what i am considering to use Celestial by lush

Aqua, Glycerin, Isohexadecane, Niacinamide, Dimethicone, Isopropyl Isostearate, Polyacrylamide, Sorbitan Stearate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Panthenol, Zinc Oxide, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Camellia Oleifera, Sucrose Polycottonseedate, C13-C14 Isoparaffin, Laureth-7, Dimethiconol, Myristyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Arachidyl Alcohol, Titanium Dioxide, Palmitic Acid, Stearic Acid, Citric Acid, Oleth-3-Phosphate, Ammonium Polyacrylate, PEG-100 Stearate, Disodium EDTA, Tocopherol, Ethylparaben, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Benzyl Alcohol, BHT.

Vanilla Water (Vanilla planifolia), Almond Oil (Prunus dulcis), Almond Milk (Prunus dulcis), Glycerine, Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao), Fresh Dove Orchid Extract (Dendrobium), Cetearyl Alcohol, Stearic Acid, Triethanolamine, Methylparaben, Propylparaben

I have to say that the olay product does leave my skin looking so nice when i have got it on, but just compare the amount of chemicals in there! it is quite scary!I really dont want to put so many chemicals on my face. Do you look at whats in your pot? Do chemicals bother you?
