    19 Holy Grail Products For Sensitive Skin That BuzzFeed Writers Actually Swear By

    My skin is sensitive, just like me.

    1. The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 that you apply before your moisturizer for an extra dose of hydration. It'll have your skin looking and feeling softer in no time and is a real bargain for the price (under $10)!

    2. A plant-based ocean cleanser that's infused with algae extract jojoba oil, and lactic acid to hydrate and detoxify your pores. It's super creamy and will leave your skin feeling like straight-up velvet.

    3. A tube of Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Cream that will unfuss even the fussiest skin and make it all plump and cute, like you're actually full of youthful zest and vigour.

    4. A tube of Supergoop's Unseen Sunscreen that'll protect your precious pores from the sun's harsh rays. It's super smooth, non-greasy, lightweight, and won't clog your pores (aka everything you could ever want in a sunscreen).

    5. A bottle of green tea facial mist that'll give you hydrated, glowy skin in just a few spritzes. It's also a great way to boost your energy if you're hitting a slump and need something to wake you up.

    6. A tub of Herbivore Botanicals Blue Tansy Resurfacing Clarity Mask that's infused with fruit enzymes and is gentler than most clarifying masks. One use will leave you with softer, smoother skin, so it's basically a miracle in a jar.

    7. A bottle of The Ordinary Caffeine Solution that's basically like a cuppa Joe for your under-eye area. It'll make those dark circles and puffiness disappear in mere moments, so nobody will be able to tell you pulled an all-nighter.

    8. A bottle of balancing Ole Henriksen toner that'll give you a fresh face without stripping your skin or leaving it feeling tight. I react to most toners, but this one keeps my pores happy and my face zit-free.

    9. Or, if you're looking for something a bit more affordable, a bottle of rose-infused Thayers toner that'll cleanse your skin without totally drying it out. It also smells like a bouquet of flowers, which doesn't hurt.

    10. A tube of Origin's charcoal mask that'll suck the gunk right out of your pores and leave your face feeling fresh. It can even be used as a spot treatment, if you're not in the mood for a whole mask.

    11. A tub of scent-free First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream that'll see you through eczema flare-ups, Sahara-dry skin, and everything in between. It's pretty darn thick, but sinks into your skin quickly and won't leave you feeling greasy.

    12. A tube of Skyn Iceland Glacial Face Wash that's made with glacial water and white willow bark to detoxify and purify your skin, without drying it out. It's also great at combatting acne!

    13. A tub of Glow Recipe Watermelon Sleeping Mask that'll work some serious magic on your skin while you snooze. It's packed with hyaluronic acid, so it's basically like a tall drink of water for your skin.

    14. A pack of revolutionary acne patches that'll come in handy when you're facing a flare-up. They'll magically make your zits disappear overnight and will also help stop you from picking at your active pimples.

    15. A bottle of luxurious Jurlique Skin Balancing Face Oil that will nourish any skin type. It's especially helpful to dull and dry faces, which most of us have right now, thanks to the changing of the seasons.

    16. A tube of Cosrx gel cleanser that'll leave your face feeling squeaky clean, without getting rid of its natural oils (you need those)! It smells a little medicinal, but it works actual magic when it comes to getting gunk out of your pores.

    17. A bottle of Sunday Riley's U.F.O. Ultra Clarifying Face Oil, which is packed with salicylic acid, tea tree oil, and black cumin seed oil to banish pimples, instead of harsh chemicals. Basically, it's out of this world.

    18. If you're feeling fancy, a Foreo Luna Mini 2 that'll scrub your entire face clean with T-Sonic pulses. It's gentle enough for sensitive skin and will get rid of makeup residue, dead skin cells, and just about anything else.

    19. And finally, a tube of Burt's Bees Face Cleanser for Sensitive Skin that's packed with cotton extract to give you a deep clean without irritating your pores. It also has a bit of aloe in it to ensure your skin stays calm.
