    30 Products To Help Take Care Of Even The Most Sensitive Skin

    I am sensitive and so is my skin.

    1. Mighty Patch Rescue Balm requires but a dab for post-pimple problems (it reduces flaking, redness, uneven texture, and scarring). But the real winner here? It won't sting or cause irritation, which is truly what separates this from other spot treatments on the market.

    2. Vanicream Facial Moisturizer believes less is more, aka this no-frills product is free of dyes, fragrance, parabens, and other "how do I pronounce this..." ingredients that give sensitive skin the ick. Pray tell, what does it use instead? Ceramides, hyaluronic acid, squalane, and glycerin.

    3. La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 Balm is a multi-purpose balm suitable for face, body, lips, and hands. A non-sticky combination of shea butter and glycerin soothes irritated skin in a jiffy... and despite how moisturizing it is, reviewers swear that it doesn't cause breakouts. Not all heroes wear capes.

    4. Bioderma Hydrabio Tonic Lotion takes your nighttime routine from drab to fab with just one extra step and a mere seven seconds of your time — just soak this on a cotton pad and swipe it on post-cleanse. Toners tend to err on the strips-skin-of-moisture side, but *this* wonderful option uses glycerin to guarantee extra TLC in the form of hydration.

    5. Cetaphil Dermacontrol Purifying Clay Face Mask is meant for folks who struggle with excess oil coupled with major sensitivity. You're not alone! Unlike other bentonite clay formulas on the market, this one is shockingly gentle (yet still effective) and won't cause breakouts, uncomfortable dryness, or severe redness.

    6. Tower 28 Daily Rescue Facial Spray revitalizes skin with three simple ingredients: hypochlorous acid, water, and sodium chloride. Give your complexion a spritz of this trio to cleanse, soothe redness, and calm irritation. Reviewers even *swear* by this product for combatting maskne!

    8. Korres Greek Yoghurt Probiotic Superdose Face Mask tackles redness with a vengeance. Quality ingredients like Greek yogurt, lactic acid, and a microbiome re-balancing technology help nourish your skin's natural protective layer (the kind ruined by never-ending stress and deliciously greasy food), plus improves overall texture.

    9. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Body Gel Cream reaps a ton of praise from ye old TikTok gods for being both hydrating and fast-absorbing. That's right, folks. No more waiting — checks watch — a full half hour before slipping on your pajamas and crawling into bed.

    17. Vanicream Gentle Body Wash is a gentle formula raved about by those with sensitive complexions — because the heavily perfumed suds you've been using are irritating and drying, ergo, the time has come to *finally* swap in this dye-, fragrance-, and sulfate-free bottle (it's super moisturizing, to boot).

    20. Full Spectrum 360° Sun Silk Drops provides SPF30 sans breakouts and grease, the latter of which my T-zone is eternally grateful.

    21. Dr. Jart Cicapair Color Correcting Treatment contains a major superstar ingredient: tiger grass (centella asiatica). This green-to-beige product remedies redness, helps heal sensitive skin, and covers up pimples — no heavy, crease-y concealer necessary.

    24. Press Restart Gentle Retinol Serum enlists the help of bakuchiol and chlorophyll, making it gentle enough for sensitive skin (retinol = some pretty powerful stuff).

Only about .5 seconds have passed.

    26. Vegan and cruelty-free Awake Human Organic Face Moisturizer prides itself on being free of icky chemicals that you probably (in my case, definitely) can't pronounce.

    27. La Roche-Posay Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Cleanser picks up makeup and impurities while maintaining your natural pH balance, aka so long to complexions that feel stripped of moisture. Everybody (everybody in this equation = folks with dry-to-normal skin) rejoice because this is your new holy grail.
