Living with sensitive skin can often mean sticking to same old skincare routine in fear that something could break you out, and effectively start World War III right on the surface of your skin. Take greater care when choosing products that don’t strip oil off the skin, since this is a major source of skin breakage and irritation. Below are some products which work wonders on sensitive skin, and don’t cause any bad breakouts.
1. Kosmea Organic Rose Hip Oil 20mL, $21.99
Rose Hip Oil is a skincare saviour for anyone who suffers from sensitive skin, acne or scarring. This product is packed with essential fatty acids which include omega-3 and contribute to healthy skin all year round. They act as a super-moisturiser which repairs skin cells while you sleep, and helps to effectively decrease the appearance of wrinkles, acne scarring and also stretch marks.
2. Aesop Camellia Nut Facial Hydrating Cream 60mL, $49.00
Australian skincare brand, Aesop is revolutionising the way traditional products look and feel when they interact with the skin. They specialise in a number of hydrating creams which lock in moisture without feeling weighed-down.

3. Aloe Calming Facial Cleanser for Sensitive Skin 200mL, $20.95

Keratolytic acid which is found within the formula helps to reduce the amount of breakouts in just three days, and dramatically changes the look of skin if used on a regular basis. Even if you don’t suffer from acne, the formula is gentle enough to use every morning, and even works as a primer before applying makeup.
