    "Your royal highness, I present to you these products for your approval." —me talking to my easily irritated skin

    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    We asked the BuzzFeed Community to name their favorite gentle skincare products for sensitive skin and they had some amazing recommendations. Start taking notes:

    1. Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser swaps 1/4 of its H20 content for rosewater, which is super soothing (and not to mention, smells great!) for your skin, plus Poloxamer (which is an effective yet mild cleansing agent also used in contact lens solution) leaves your skin clean, soft, and free of makeup/grime.

    Glossier

    It's hypoallergenic, appropriate for all skin types, soap-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, cruelty-free, non-comedogenic, and vegan for all of you keeping track!

    "It is my holy grail. I have rosacea and extremely sensitive dry skin. It's super calming."—karawin21

    Get it from Glossier for $9+ (available in two sizes).

    2. Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing Pads tackle breakouts with just a few swipes of its resurfacing abilities, made up of 2.8% glycolic acid, hyaluronic acid, and witch hazel. They're so easy and mess-free, so you can say "seeya" to acne and acne scars faster!

    @nipandfab / Via instagram.com, buzzfeed.com

    "Nip + Fab Daily Cleansing Pads are a dream. Usually these kind of pads make my skin so red and kind of stings when I rub them around, but not these! They feel so nice and my skin feels soft afterward." —Casey S.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.50.

    3. Neutrogena Healthy Defense Daily Moisturizer SPF 50 provides — wait for it — NOT greasy hydration and sun protection that melts seamlessly into your skin and doesn't cause your skin to freak out, so you can rest easy knowing you're protected. It's really forging the path for other moisturizer-sunscreen hybrids, NBD.

    Neutrogena

    "I have combination skin and have struggled with acne since I was 12 (I’m in my 30s), so finding products that don’t cause breakouts has been a problem for over half my life. I absolutely swear by Neutrogena Healthy Defense Daily Moisturizer with SPF 50. I’ve been using it for years because I needed daily sun protection (wear that SPF every day, y’all!) that wasn’t greasy and wasn’t an extra layer of gunk on my face. It provides great protection, isn’t heavy or oily, and doesn’t cause my skin to freak out." —michellecarpentierp

    Get it from Walmart for $12.02 or Amazon for $15.81.

    4. Cosrx Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser is a beloved K-beauty staple that instantly soothes the skin, contains tea tree leaf oil to deep clean pores and keep breakouts and bay, and reveals your skin's inner glow.

    Sarah Han / BuzzFeed

    "It doesn't leave my face feeling dry and taut, just clean and smooth (which I like!). I had zero irritation and it works well as a daily face wash. There's no excessive scent or suds. It smells clean, kind of clinical. There's also a lot of product in one tube and it's priced reasonably." —chandniv

    @pyunkangyul / Via instagram.com

    "It's gentle and has very few ingredients, so there's minimal potential for irritation. It’s never bothered my sensitive skin and it helps keep my skin hydrated, especially if I’m layering it on. It’s a good buffer if you’re also using Tretinoin, as I am." —sapphicsera

    @dhcskincare / Via instagram.com

    Get it from Amazon for $28.

    10. Curel Itch Defense does exactly what the name suggests: relieves dry, itchy skin, and rebalances ceramide, pH, and moisture levels, and helps control flare-ups — and since it's safe to use on babies six months and up, you're all the more assured it's safe for you too.

    buzzfeed.com

    "I have eczema and this is the only lotion I can use. It is endorsed by the National Eczema Association and it is wonderful. It is truly fragrance-free and has just the right consistency." —jazzycatsindisneyland

    Get it from Amazon for $7.97.

    Walmart

    "YO. I’ve tried so many products. The highly rated ones. The recommended ones. The ones the esthetician used. Nothing gave me results like this bad boy. And it’s only less than 10 bucks. It was my 'ugh, this is the only face wash that has aloe in it' last minute decision at Walmart. Best purchase of my life. Well, other than my adopted dog. But you know what I mean. Changed my life. It was my last product to try out before I gave up and visited a dermatologist. 1000% recommend." —Chrissy B.

    Get it from Walmart for $6.94. Also available in a crushed ginger and citrus extract version.

PHEW.

    14. Cosrx Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask serves as an overnight mask, wash-off mask, or daily moisturizer, depending on what skin type you have!

    Amazon

    "It makes a great moisturizer, especially if you have sensitive skin and a sensitivity to fatty alcohols (which are included in most moisturizers). The propolis makes it very soothing, especially if your skin is irritated." —sapphicsera

    15. Dr. Jart Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment instantly calms down rogue redness with color-changing (green to beige) capsules that blends into your skin tone, protects against UV light with SPF 30, and boosts fatigued-looking skin — all thanks to a centella asiatica complex, aka Tiger Grass*.

    @drjart / Via instagram.com

    *It's apparently inspired by Asian tigers who literally roll around in centella asiatica to heal their battle wounds! And it's been used for centuries by humans too.

    "My skin gets irritated by most anything, even after washing in the morn. I put this stuff on in between serum/moisturizer and primer/foundation as an extra SPF barrier (don't @ me) and as a soothing color corrector. I don't know what's in it (JK, I can read ingredients labels), but it's so soothing!" —Elizabeth Lilly

    Get it from Sephora for $52.

    Amazon

    "I cannot recommend VaniCream highly enough — my skin is super sensitive and prone to redness and dryness. Since I started washing my face with VaniCream twice a day, I have noticed huge improvements. I’m so glad my dermatologist recommended this line of products." —Emma W.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    18. Sunday Riley Juno Antioxidant + Superfood Face Oil doesn't try to fool you with an unnecessarily long ingredient list: it's literally all cold-pressed seed oils, including blueberry, cranberry, red raspberry, and broccoli — plus, for dry skin types, you can also mix in Juno with your sunscreen or foundation for smoothness and added radiance.

    @sundayriley / Via instagram.com

    "Literally nothing but organic cold-pressed seed oils." —amarie2121

    Get it from Amazon for $36+ (available in two sizes).

    19. Burt's Bees Sensitive Facial Cleanser is 98.9% natural, hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, and infused with a combination of rice extracts and aloe to keep redness, irritation, and breakouts at an all-time low.

    Amazon

    "I've tried every skincare product out there, most of which I am allergic to, and the only thing that works on my skin is Burt's Bees Sensitive Face Wash! I pair it with their hydrating night cream and it works miracles!" —casserole96

    20. Paula's Choice CALM Redness Relief 1% BHA Lotion Exfoliant helps keep rosacea under control by soothing redness (hello, plant extracts!) and plumping dry skin with major hydration, while also diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and size of pores — and it's 100% fragrance free, so slather away!

    Amazon

    "Paula’s Choice Calm has changed my skin. It’s so amazing!!! I have rosacea and some breakouts. After starting Calm, which incorporates a 1% BHA chemical exfoliant, I had a couple of pimples surface and then clear skin for the first time in years. My skin is soft, smooth, and my redness is reduced. Obviously nothing will make my rosacea go away completely, but the redness has eased enough that I can go out without makeup and not look like Rudolph." —kaseybickleyf

Foam up and let the glycerin do its work, and voila — a clean, smooth visage is yours!

    Amazon

And for under $10, this lasts me almost two months! It's a huge amount of product with ingredients your skin will love!" —arnsalexandra

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $14.36.

    Sephora

    "Hands down. I have combination skin that is acne-prone. I replaced my moisturizer with this oil and my dry patches healed, my oily sections are far less oily, and my breakouts are smaller, less painful, and heal faster. Overall, my skin’s texture is so much more even. It’s a little pricey for an oil but I only need four drops at a time, so the bottle is lasting me forever." —Lauren S.

    Get it from Sephora for $34.

    24. Aveeno Eczema Therapy Lotion literally has the National Eczema Association Seal of Approval on its packaging, so it's a trustworthy product, to say the least — it's clinically proven to relieve dry, itchy, and irritated skin with its winning combination of colloidal oatmeal, ceramides, and essential lipids (found naturally in your skin!) to keep your skin's protective and reparative functions running smoothly.

    @aveenous / Via instagram.com

    Get it from Amazon for $11.67.

    25.

    Get it from Sephora for $38.

    26. Differin Adapalenge Gel is the first retinoid gel approved for over-the-counter use, aka a dermatologist-level treatment that reduces inflammation and prevents pore blockage and pimples — just be patient and consistent (as with most skincare products anyways!), since it typically takes around 12 weeks to see ~true~ results.

    Differin

    "For acne, Differin gel is definitely gentler than most other medicines that contain either salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. I used to have a bright red, burning face every time I applied acne cream, but never again!" —Amber O.

    @dermae / Via Instagram: @https://www.instagram.com/dermae/p/BrDbP8cj-YH/

    "I absolutely love it. It contains glycolic acid, which is a gentle exfoliant, so it really leaves your skin feeling soft and fresh while helping to gently remove dead skin cells. The scent is also clean and not overpowering at all, so it’s really a win-win!" —stardust12706

    Get it from Amazon for $10.48.

    29. La Roche Posay Toleraine Double Repair Face Moisturizer really does double — nah, like triple duty at least — when it comes to locking that hydration in, helping reduce the symptoms of eczema, *not* clogging pores, and not causing flareups or your skin to look oily. Rejoice!

    32. All of the products in Etude House's SoonJung Line are deliberately formulated with at least 93% naturally-derived ingredients and low pHs — while negating potential irritants like fragrance, artificial color, and parabens — so your skin feels instantly soothed and pampered, both short and long term.

    buzzfeed.com

    "It's been my go-to for a few years now. It has amino acids (which I assume are good for you), but the best part is that it removes all the dirt, grime, and residual makeup off my face, leaving a refreshing and delightfully 'fresh' smell. Ton of my friends have gotten on board already, and its sister products for moisturizing and scrubbing are just as complimenting." —Ariel S.

    Get it from Sephora for $15+ (available in two sizes).

    34. Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Bar leaves every inch of your face and body feeling fresh and clean as can be, without leaving your skin feeling stripped of natural oils or emollients, or feeling desert-dry (eep!) — and that's due to its mild, soap-free formula, which doesn't contain any harsh detergents.

    Walmart

    "It gets EVERYTHING OFF and doesn’t make my dry/sensitive skin feel like it’s zapped of moisture! Bye makeup! Bye pollution! Bye anything ballsy enough to try and stay in my pores! Also, Walmart makes their own version of this, which is cheaper and seems to work just as well — it's just a matter of preference, because there is a slight scent." —McKenna H.

    "I’m atopic and have super sensitive skin, so I only use dermatological products that are non-comedogenic. I’ve been using the Cetaphil bar for six years and it is amazing. Not only does one bar last over a year, it doesn’t dry your skin and keeps pimples at bay. You just feel really clean after using it. Considering how affordable it is, I can’t recommend this enough. Keep it on a soap dish with holes so it keeps dry." —Vanessa M.

    "I love, love, love this! The beads provide gentle exfoliation and my face feels so clean afterwards without looking red!

    "Gentle exfoliation, clean smell, and leaves face soft with no residue." —Sarah F.

    Get it from Target for $10.99.
