Redness. Irritation. Itchiness. It’s safe to say the effects of sensitive skin are far from fun. Searching for skin care that’s both effective and gentle on the complexion can seem an impossible task. To all you sensitive-skinned gals out there, we just want to say we feel your pain and we’re here to help. We compiled a list of skincare solutions that are designed with your fragile mugs in mind. You’re welcome!


For an All-In-One Solution. With its powers to do everything from soothing inflamed and irritated skin, moisturizing even the driest of complexions and even detangling hair, it’s no wonder we are over the moon about VMV Hypoallergenics Grandma Minnie’s Oil’s Well Nurturing Do-It-Oil. Apply some to your face when it’s feeling extra dry or you get a bout of redness.

For Careful Cleaning. Get your face squeaky-clean with some peace of mind with SkinCeuticals Gentle Cleanser. This formula is so face-friendly it can be used multiple times a day. It also works double duty by calming the skin and promoting rejuvenation.

For Instant Hydration. Sensitive skin is often the victim of dehydration and flaking. Pump your skin with moisture with Vichy Aqualia Thermal Serum. This skin-soother keeps skin hydrated comforted for 24 hours. All-day skin care? Yes please!

For Daily Care. Gentle enough to be applied as a moisturizer twice a day, La Roche Posay Toleriane Ultra calms your skin and keeps reactions and flare-ups at bay.

For Protecting Those Peepers. One of the most fragile and vulnerable areas of your face is your eyes and the First Aid Beauty Eye Duty Triple Remedy keeps the area in check without wreaking havoc on your face. The three-in-one solution targets dark circles, brightens the skin and improves the appearance of fine lines.
