10 Beauty Products for Sensitive Skin Types
Wouldn’t it be lovely to slather on the new gel face cream that everyone’s talking about, without having to worry about redness, itchiness or burning? If you have sensitive skin, trying new products is always a gamble. But it doesn’t have to be. Here are ten trusted skin-care options that are specifically formulated to soothe even the fussiest complexions.
Avène Antirougeurs Day Redness-Relief Soothing Cream SPF 25
Basically a magic potion for reducing redness, this cream is infused with thermal spring water to deliver a dose of hydration while fading blotchy patches. It’s also loaded with SPF 25 to protect against those pesky (and harmful) UV rays.
REN Clean Skincare Evercalm Overnight Recovery Balm
This product comes highly recommended by one PureWow editor who suffers from sensitivity. This balm acts as a gentle exfoliant that stimulates cell turnover, while also diminishing the signs of aging, hypersensitivity, dryness and damage from environmental stressors. Apply it at night and wake up with the glowiest skin of your life.

This dermatologist- and beauty editor-recommended SPF is formulated without harsh chemicals, so you can protect your delicate visage without cringing in fear of rashes or burns.

Ilike Organic Skin Care Ultra Sensitive System Toner
PSA: Toner shouldn’t sting when you apply it. Ilike’s will give you refreshed, super-clean skin that’s ready for whatever products you want to layer on top. Thanks to inflammation-reducing glycerin, it also reduces the appearance of acne and rosacea.
CeraVe Moisturizing Cream

SkinCeuticals Soothing Cleanser
This product is so soothing, it’s recommended to bring equilibrium to skin after getting a procedure done (like a chemical peel). At the same time, it’s also strong enough to remove longwear foundation and waterproof mascara.
Olay Sensitive Calming Makeup Remover Wipes Fragrance Free
These makeup remover wipes are soap-free and a gentle way to remove even the most stubborn liquid eyeliner. They're a part of Olay's newest line, which was specially developed to treat dry, stressed-out skin. Plus, each swipe delivers a dose of hydration without leaving behind a greasy residue.
