Favourite Products for Dry/Sensitive Skin


It has been a while since I last spoke about my skincare routine but because I have been going through some alterations and trying out new products I thought it was about time I updated this section. My skin has gone very dry and quite sensitive as it always does this season. As much as I love to rave about HADA LABO Goku-jyun Hyaluronic Lotion it hasn’t been enough these days to keep my skin permanently hydrated. Here’s a few products which have been helping me get through the coldest of days.

Indeed Laboratories Squalane Lightweight Facial Oil

As you know I have a thing for facial oil. Ever since I realised how much of a difference it does to my skin I have to have at least one in my cabinet. I decided to buy this one purely because Caroline Hirons was recommending it in one of her recent videos but also I was running out of my Weleda Almond Soothing Oil. This one comes in a glass bottle. It’s very lightweight, fine in texture yet extremely hydrating. I can tell my skin is loving it at the moment. Derived from sugarcane, it locks in and retains moisture. Suitable for all skin types, I’d say it’s a great all rounder. It’s good for facial oil beginners too, especially when you’re wary of a new texture or residue. I personally don’t mind the latter but I know a lot of people do.


Super Facialist Pure Sensitive Micellar Cleansing Gel *

I took a break from my beloved Simple Cleansing Oil and decided to give a gel formula another go. Usually I stay away from anything that’s not an oil or balm based when it comes to cleaning your face however this one is a bit different. Designed for sensitive types it doesn’t irritate, it’s extra gentle and it doesn’t lather (win). Infused with Aloe Vera and coconut water it doesn’t leave your skin too squeaky clean either.

Super Facialist Pure Sensitive Overnight Skin Recovery Cream *

Super Facialist is one of those small brands that make sure each and every product delivers. I have a few staples I always recommend and go back to like the Rose Calming Creamy Cleanser or Miracle Makeover Facial Oil and everything from the Hyaluronic section. Pure range is their recent addition and I have to say this Overnight Cream could be one of my favourites in general. It’s quite thin in texture yet pretty powerful when it comes to how it performs. Ingredients like shea butter combined with milk protein and added lactic acid help soften and smooth skin. Plus it’s fragrance free and my parched skin is loving it.


La Roche-Posay Hyalu B5 Hyaluronic Acid Serum

I decided to repurchase this serum as I really enjoyed using it last year. It could possibly be my favourite hyaluronic acid based product I have used together with the Hada Labo lotion that I’m obsessed with. This bottle is quite pricey however it, in my opinion, is well worth the money. The reason it works so well is because it contains different sized molecules of Hyaluronic Acid. The bigger ones work their wonders on the surface of the skin, while the smaller ones are able to move deeper in the skin. Hence, it looks a lot more supple and glowy.

Have you tried any of these? What did you think?
