My skin is sensitive, just like me.
"I use this nightly and I'm absolutely obsessed. It's creamier than most cleansers, so don't expect a lot of bubble action, but it does an awesome job of clearing away dirt and makeup and leave my face feeling softer than a baby's bum!" —Alice Prendergast
"I have seen a significant difference in my skin since I started using this cream two months ago. When I bought it, I was in the midst of a cold, and I had the very fetching nostril dryness that accompanies excessive nose-blowing. After two days of twice-daily application, all trace of dryness had vanished. This stuff also claims to 'alleviate signs of sensitivity,' which, as a skin sensie, I can corroborate. I haven't seen a trace of the garden of little red patches that used to bloom all over my face when I lotioned up." —Jessie Gaynor
"I only started using this a few months ago, but so far I really like it. It's sunscreen is clear, with the texture of a primer, so it doesn't feel like you're slathering your face in... well, goop. It melts right into the skin, creating a perfect canvas for any makeup to go on top of it. Aaaand it hasn't made me break out *at all*, which is basically a little miracle. AAAAAND it helps my makeup look even better. That's what we call a win/win." —Maitland Quitmeyer
"Blue Tansy is an herbal-smelling blue-green gel that goes on clear. It’s not messy like some of the clay masks and peels I’ve used, and it comes with its own spatula so you don’t contaminate the pot with your grimy fingers. Put it on cleansed skin, leave on until it’s dry and you’re feeling tingly (for about 20 minutes), rinse with warm water, and continue your skincare regime normally. No more blackheads, my previously giant pores look smaller, and my skin is noticeably less red, smoother, and brighter immediately after use. Seriously, after I use this stuff, I cannot stop touching my face. More than once it's helped me keep a pimple at bay. Plus, it’s mild enough (no alcohol!) to use more than once a week." —Megan Paolone
"It’s a somewhat thick, gel-like consistency that I just dab under both of my eyes and within minutes, the puffiness is gone. Sometimes, I’ll even put the product under my eyes and just let it sit for a few minutes before rubbing it in, and on some occasions, I’ve even put it on my forehead, or my cheeks, or anywhere else I just need an instant lift. Within minutes, the caffeine particles in the solution have de-puffed my skin, and my eyes look amazing and ready for me to go in with the rest of my skin care and makeup. In my opinion, the best part really is the fact that a little goes a long way — I can change how much I use based upon how severe my puffiness is. And I love the product so much, I’ll use it morning and night before heading out the door for a night out with the girls (or even just staying in and sleeping, IRL). Added bonus: If you have sensitive skin like me, this product won’t give you any problems." —Jamé Jackson
"I used to have a real love/hate relationship with toners, but when I stumbled upon this gem, a moved fully into the 'love' camp. It does exactly what it claims to do: control oil. Even around my time of the month (which is when it tends to be at its worst), my skin stays pretty balanced. Other pluses? It doesn't have that alcohol-y smell like a lot of toners do and feels a little more moisturizing. My skin also doesn't have that uncomfortable tight feeling after I use it either, which is great."—Alice Prendergast

"I have combination skin that's prone to redness (especially around my cheeks and nose, with the latter being really annoying), plus the occasional pimple. After two weeks of regularly using this toner in my evening routine, I barely need concealer to cover the Crayola redness under my nostrils. PLUS! It's super effective as spot treatment. This stuff attacks your pimples with the same vendetta that Buffy used to destroy vampires: It works that well." —AnaMaria Glavan

"In addition to the daily routine, I use Origin's active charcoal mask about once a week, which clears out my pores, rids my skin of pollutants from the air, removes excess oil, and squashes any burgeoning pimples in their tracks. It keeps my skin SO clear without drying it out or irritating it. PLUS you can use it as a spot treatment for acne." —Maitland Quitmeyer

"I'd been traveling and in one flight moved from a freezing climate to a very humid New York City. My skin freaked the hell out, and none of my usual faves could get it back under control, so I decided to try something new. Every promise this cream's tub makes is true because within a fortnight my face was almost back to normal. This cream is now my go-to whenever my skin becomes irritated by a change in weather or new product." —Gyan Yankovich
"I use this foaming cleanse in the morning because its cooling effect really wakes up my skin. It has white willow bark, which is a natural form of salicylic acid that helps prevent skin congestion and acne. The oat and cylindrica seed oils also do a fantastic job of removing all the excess oils my face has so generously produced overnight, without making my skin feel dried out. It starts off creamy, and as you rub it into your skin with water, it becomes a foamy, milky gift from the skincare gods. That transition makes me feel like it's activating some magical ingredient that will make my breakouts disappear. Even if it's not magic, whatever it's doing — it's working." —Jennifer Tonti
"Ugh. OK, I'm sort of mad I fell in love with this product because it is a bit pricey. I loved using it during the summer when I wanted to wake up with refreshed, hydrated skin without slapping on a really, really thick cream. It's full of hyaluronic acid that helps keep your skin moisturized all night, and my skin literally feels SO SOFT when I wash my face the next morning. I also have sensitive skin and this didn't cause any irritation, which is a huge win in my book." —Farrah Penn
"When ~something inevitably happens~ to throw my skin out of whack — like stepping foot onto a dry-ass airplane or being super stressed out — I keep a stash of Cosrx pimple patches handy. They actually absorb gunk from your pimple — it's gross, but so helpful! And you're INCAPABLE of picking at your skin when these are on! True little miracles, these are." —Maitland Quitmeyer
"I love Jurlique, and not just because I'm Australian and it's an Australian brand. I'm obsessed with face oils, and while I find rose hip a little too rich when used on its own, I love it blended with avocado and macadamia oil in this product. My mom has extremely sensitive skin too, and this also gets her stamp of approval. All of Jurlique's products are certified organic, and a lot of their ingredients are grown on their biodynamic farm in Adelaide, South Australia. In addition to this oil, their range of soothing calendula products are great for anyone who struggles with redness." —Gyan Yankovich

"Even though it's a gel, it does foam up! Which I love! I like to rub it in my hands before applying it on my face. It's super light and easier to work in and go to town with a lil' massage than, say, a creamy cleanser. I tend to get some breakouts when I travel, and I really think the betaine salicylate and tea tree leaf oil has helped kept my pores clear and prevented breakouts from popping up." —Sarah Han

"This is absolutely a ride-or-die for me. Yes, it's pricey, but trust me — it's worth the investment. It lasts a very long time as you really only need one to two drops a day when you're having a breakout. You might be skeptical about using an oil to treat acne, but let me assure you, it works — it's formulated with 1.5% salicylic acid, which helps to prevent breakouts and treat any pimple party currently happening on your face. For the best results, I use this after I cleanse my face and before I moisturize. That way the product has time to really soak into my pores and get things done. Every time I've used this oil I've actually seen a visible clarifying effect on my skin!" —Jennifer Tonti
"Here's how it works: apply cleanser directly to your face, wet the LUNA, and move it around your face in circular motions. Throughout the 60-second process, the light on the bottom will flash and the whole thing will buzz, telling you to move the LUNA to another part of your face — from one cheek/side of your chin to the other, then your nose, and then your forehead. It removes up to 99.5% of dirt and oil — and leaves your face free of ANY makeup residue. I wear a full face every day, and I am consistently amazed by the results of this tool." —Maitland Quitmeyer

"Because I wear makeup every day, sometimes I feel like I needed a more thorough clean than my beloved light liquid cleansers can offer, which is when I turn to this product. It's also a cream cleanser, rather than a foam, so never leaves my face feeling tight or dry." —Gyan Yankovich
