My skin goes through stages, most of the time I can use any products I like and not get a reaction but sometimes my skin becomes really sensitive and I can only use products that are formulated for sensitive skin. I have used a lot of products in my time and have found some amazing products that work for me even when my skin is super sensitive. In today's post, I'll be sharing with you the perfect products for sensitive skin!

Aveeno Skin Relief Moisturising Lotion 

I was looking for a daily moisturising lotion for ages and everyone that I tried either didn't make my skin feel very hydrated or caused my skin to become more sensitive and that was until I started to use this lotion from Aveeno. When I'm looking for a body moisturiser I need a product to be able to soothe and smooth the skin and keep it feeling nourished throughout the day and not just for a couple of hours, I can apply this moisturiser in the morning and hours later my skin still feels amazingly soft. One of the main benefits of using this moisturiser is that the formula helps to improve the balance of the skin's natural microbiome and it gives the skin a more resilient and healthy-looking skin from day 1. Another reason why I love this body lotion is that when you apply it to the skin it soaks in instantly and leaves the skin with a light luminous glow which I love and it doesn't make my skin feel too oily or greasy. This product is perfect for anyone with sensitive skin who needs a new daily moisturising lotion. 

Key Features:
  • Clinically proven to moisturise skin for up to 24 hours 
  • Helps to heal very dry skin
  • Contains Prebiotic triple oat complex (Oat flour, extract and oil)

E45 Itch Relief Cream 

I have mild eczema, I get flare-ups sometimes and when it does it feels like my skin is on fire. I have tried a lot of different products (that aren't prescription) and one of the only things that help to calm my skin down when it feels overly itchy is this Itch relief cream from E45. When I was a child and my eczema was a little bit worse I used to use e45 as a daily moisturiser but because my skin has improved a lot over the years I only need to use it now on occasions when I have really itchy and uncomfortable skin. This product is targeted at skin types such as eczema and dermatitis. I mainly use this cream on my legs and arms, these tend to be the areas where I get itchy the most, if my skin is having an itchy moment I will apply this cream and in a few minutes, I can already feel the area begin to cool down and become less itchy. For work, I wash my hands constantly between clients and by the end of the day my hands can be very dry and itchy, this is when I would use this cream to help soothe the itch instantly. If you suffer from itchy skin and can't find anything that helps, definitely give this cream a try. 

Key Features:
  • Contains the anti-itch ingredient Lauromacrogols which treats and soothes the itch
  • Up to 24 hours of hydration 
  • Has a non-greasy moisturising formula 
  • Perfume-free - dermatologically tested 

Aqueous Cream 

I have been using Aqueous Cream from different brands for years, it is one of the only products that I've used over a long period of time that I know works for my skin and doesn't cause any irritation. Aqueous Cream is topically applied to the skin as an emollient that helps to relieve dry skin conditions and it has a super gentle formula meaning it is perfect for people who suffer from sensitive skin. Another thing that I discovered while researching for this post is that you can actually mix aqueous cream with water and create a skin cleanser to remove makeup, dirt and impurities, this is perfect for people with the most sensitive of skin and if they have tried other cleansers that just don't work for them. I have also used Aqueous cream as sunburn relief, it is so gentle on the skin that it provides a cooling and calming effect even on sunburn! There are so many amazing uses for this cream and a thing that I really love about it is that it is such an affordable product, the one I have I purchased from Savers for only 75p! 

Key Features:
  • Gentle and non-irritating cleanser alternative
  • Used to soothe dry skin conditions 
  • Can be used as Sunburn relief 

Dove Original Antiperspirant 

Another area of my body that can be very sensitive at times is my underarms, I think over the years of shaving have caused them to become a lot more sensitive. I have used so many different deodorants and antiperspirants and a lot of them have caused sensitivity, one of the only products that works for me is Dove Original. All I want from deodorant is to keep me fresh all day and not cause any sensitivity to my underarms and it does just that. I have tried the more fancy products and the more expensive ones but I always end up coming back to this product because I know that it works for me. I have also tried all the different versions of this deodorant like the aerosol and cream stick but my favourite has to be the roll on, it seems to just work really well for me. 

Key Features:
  • Gives up to 48hours of antiperspirant protection 
  • Helps to reduce underarm skin irritation after shaving 
  • Contains moisturising ingredients for smooth and soft underarms
