Shop Skincare For Sensitive Skin


There are so many different ways in which you may have sensitive skin - but we've collected some of our favourite products that keep irritants to a minimum. Even with sensitivities, it's still so important to have a complete routine that ensures your skin is nourished, hydrated and protected.

 

While it's impossible to account for all skin sensitivities, there are some common ingredients that can act as a trigger to your skin. Every skin is different, so just because something doesn't work for you doesn't mean it's not someone else's saviour.

 

Sensitive skin can lead to outcomes such as swelling, itchiness, scaly skin amongst other things. It's also important to check the products that you're currently using - some products are too harsh to be used all over the face. Some products in particular are only to be used once every second night, usually products that contain actives such as retinol or glycolic acid.
 

Another common skincare oversight include the belief that natural products can't irritate the skin - of course, they can be just as active as more refined products! You may want to consider checking your products for essential oils or fragrance, both of which can be irritants.

 

It is so important to avoid harsh soaps and detergents, so try a gentle milky cleanser that locks in moisture. Be sure to use cool or lukewarm water, as hot water can damage the skin's barrier. Do not use a rough cloth for cleansing - we recommend a soft microfiber cloth if you feel your hands aren't doing the job.

 

If cleansing is too much for your skin, try using a micellar cleanser. Best used on a high-quality cotton pad to remove makeup and the day's impurities, this nifty product tones and cleanses all in one. Don't rub, instead but press the pad against your skin before gently wiping.

So great!

This is fantastic, and such a great price! I’ve already bought it several times and bought it for my friends too. It has a nice texture, and doesn’t make my already oily skin go overboard in either winter or summer. The only other moisturisers I’ve tried that are this good were Thalgo and Dior- I could buy 20 of these for the price of one of those, and I bet they have unnecessary silicones to make them feel so good too. I would absolutely recommend everyone try this.

Better Lait Than Never

Admittedly, the first time I used this product, I was petsitting, and at the mercy of whatever products were in the owner's shower. Luckily for me, the owner has great taste, and potentially was doubling as an Ella Bache representative. I couldn't get into this cleanser at all. It left residue on the skin, and I didn't feel like it was really getting into the pores. She encouraged me to try it again, but using the Ella Bache sponges to take the product off afterwards.
It was a revelation.
Next, I moved onto the ultimate test - removing makeup. The cleansing milk was fantastic in getting rid of my skin's impurities and actually helped to balance out my skin. I'm giving it one star less on account of the fact that you do need to have a washer, cloth, or sponges to really see the full benefits - which sometimes is not easy when travelling. But ultimately, a great product.

13 Out Of 10 Would Cleanse Again

This was my first product in the Alpha H range, and was bought out of desperation and was on sale at 25% off. I was wanting a change from a cleansing milk, as it needed sponges and cloths to remove. I wanted a product that lasted a long time, could travel easily, and completely clean my skin without drying it out to the stage where I end up looking like The Cryptkeeper (I hear he's nice, but seriously dude, hydrate).
Now I'm obsessed. Which is awful, because it is a higher price point, BUT it is absolutely worth every cent. My bottle lasted well over three months (a household record) and that was even with double cleansing on most days. You don't need sponges or a cloth, although it is a nice little treatment now and then, and it doesn't dry out the skin. I've noticed my skin is more balanced and behaves. It's a little bit creamy, and an a little bit milky, and a lot of bit amazing.
