Shop Skincare For Sensitive Skin


There are so many different ways in which you may have sensitive skin - but we've collected some of our favourite products that keep irritants to a minimum. Even with sensitivities, it's still so important to have a complete routine that ensures your skin is nourished, hydrated and protected.

 

While it's impossible to account for all skin sensitivities, there are some common ingredients that can act as a trigger to your skin. Every skin is different, so just because something doesn't work for you doesn't mean it's not someone else's saviour.

 

Sensitive skin can lead to outcomes such as swelling, itchiness, scaly skin amongst other things. It's also important to check the products that you're currently using - some products are too harsh to be used all over the face. Some products in particular are only to be used once every second night, usually products that contain actives such as retinol or glycolic acid.
 

Another common skincare oversight include the belief that natural products can't irritate the skin - of course, they can be just as active as more refined products! You may want to consider checking your products for essential oils or fragrance, both of which can be irritants.

 

It is so important to avoid harsh soaps and detergents, so try a gentle milky cleanser that locks in moisture. Be sure to use cool or lukewarm water, as hot water can damage the skin's barrier. Do not use a rough cloth for cleansing - we recommend a soft microfiber cloth if you feel your hands aren't doing the job.

 

If cleansing is too much for your skin, try using a micellar cleanser. Best used on a high-quality cotton pad to remove makeup and the day's impurities, this nifty product tones and cleanses all in one. Don't rub, instead but press the pad against your skin before gently wiping.

On my second bottle

This is the BEST for lips. During winter I have cracked lips on both corners and this gem soothes and heals it within a few days. I lips are super soft throughout the day and any excess from my lips I put on my fingers to help sooth my rough skin. It really works and worth the price and you will not be disappointed.

Very hydrating

I have really noticed my skin has not been dry since using this serum. It goes on nicely and sinks in quickly. I usually struggle in winter with getting dry peeling skin but this has not been an issue this season. I’ve just finished my first bottle and would purchase again especially given the low price point

Did not penetrate into my skin

having sensitive dry skin, I was excited to try this product as so many people use this brand and love the results. I was disappointed with my purchase as after using this for a week, hoping it would penetrate into my skin, it just wasn't able to. It left my face slightly moisturized and at first i thought i wasn't applying enough but even when i applied quite a bit,the results were still the same. Probably great on others but unfortunately not for me.

Nice texture

I've tried a few retinols. This one feels like a quality moisturiser as well, doesn't dry out my skin like some others. I get a little flaky/ dry skin a day or two after using it, but nothing that's not easily fixed. Only downside is the price, it's quite expensive for what it is.
