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.

Wish it had SPF

Love this moisturiser. Its super good for sensitive skin and really lightweight. It is odourless and just a really straight forward product to keep your skin nice and moisturised. However, I really wish it had at least SPF 15 in the product and still trying to find a moisturiser that is good for my acne-prone skin but also has sunscreen.

Good entry level HA

Hydration isn’t a major concern for me but this is a good boost. Gave up trying to wear this under make up as it makes it pill which I’ve heard is pretty common. I’ll just use it at night with moisturiser for a hydration boost, or underneath retinol on alternating nights. Hard to go wrong with The Ordinary.
