In brief: Allergy
When you are allergic to one of the ingredients of the cosmetic in question, you will develop contact dermatitis.
Unfortunately it is frequently difficult to identify the specific ingredient that is causing the problem, since cosmetic companies often keep their formulas secret. A dermatologist can help you do it, though, with patch testing.
