To girls who have sensitive skin like I do, Let us drink to that! … or not?!
As we know, having this kind of skin condition is not a joke! It is very limiting in terms of the products that can be used not to mention the allergic reactions that may occur. Apparently experimenting really entails a lot of risk.
Allergic skin reactions vary from person to person. As for me, I tend to have very dry, rough, itchy and flaky skin or breakout whenever I carelessly use a product that contains harsh elements or strong artificial ingredients. Finding a skincare and makeup product that will suit my skin condition is a struggle and I know I’m not alone.
So, let me share with you the moisturizers that I tried and tested myself. I experienced no allergic reactions with them. Just a little disclaimer though, I cannot promise that it can do the same to all because we still have different skin chemistry.
Avene Thermal Spring Water, 150 ml. (P800+.00)
One of the most refreshing things ever! Why? Because nothing can ever invigorate us than water. Now, this one is extra special because it is thermal spring water collected from the Cevennes Mountain aquifer (underground layer of permeable rock, sediment, or soil that yields water) in France. This water infused with mineral composition is being stored directly into the can, ready for use.
It is so gentle that even babies can use it to ease and prevent rashes.
How I used it: I Just spritz an ample amount on my cleansed face, wait for 2 to 3 minutes then pat my face dry using my hands. This method can help my skin absorb all the good stuff and I feel very hydrated afterwards. This product can be use in the morning or before going to bed.
Benefits: Soothes redness associated with inflammation·Calms itching sensations·Rich in silicate and trace elements·Low salt mineral content does not dry out the skin·pH 7.5 – perfect balance of anions and cations· Sterile packaging– bacteriologically pure· Preservative-free·Hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic
Available in: Lazada and selected Mercury Drug and Watsons Branches in 50 ml, 150 ml and 300 ml spray bottles.
Nature Republic Aloe Vera Soothing Gel 300 ml. (P250.00)
Any product that is made out of natural ingredients are mostly sensitive skin-friendly, and this moisturizer is one of them. It is made in Korea by the way, and I am telling you this aloe vera gel is so cooling and soothing in the skin and smells so good to.
Made out of 92% organic aloe vera, it is paraben free and no artificial coloring whatsoever, how about that? In addition, a single tub holds a lot of product that will last you for quite a while. This gel can also be applied to dry areas of arms, legs and hair.
How I used it: What I love to do to intensify the cooling effect is that I store it in the refrigerator and then, once the gel touches the skin … ugh! one of the best feelings ever! I just let it sit in my face and neck overnight and the next day, my face is just in its good state.
Benefits: Soothes, cools and moisturize dry and sensitive skin.
Available in: Althea website and Landmark Trinoma.
IWhite Korea Aqua Moisturizer Whitening Vita 50 ml. (P179.00)
Another Korean-made skin care product obviously and also one of the moisturizers that I can recommend for girls with sensitive skin. Specially, because this can be availed in sample sizes so you can pretty much test it out before purchasing the full size tube. What I love about this one is how it smells, gentleness in the skin and its watery consistency. I already did a separate review about this moisturizer, just click here Ü.
Available in: Mercury Drug and Watson Drug Stores, 7-11 outlets and grocery stores.
