Domestic Rat of Amuse-Bouche has very sensitive skin and hence is very particular about the skincare products she uses. Here, she recommends a product for those with skin condition like hers:
Few people can fully understand and recommend with confidence products suitable for sensitive skin users. Half the time, they cannot comprehend why skin would turn reddish or even what eczema is.
Bogged down with such rare issues, I often find it a strain to buy cosmetic products over the counters, namely to articulate my concerns to nonchalant sales personnel.
After much trial and error, there is one product I would swear by and strongly encourage those with sensitive skin to try – Avene Soothing Moisture Mask. It’s a rich and creamy mask that helps to calm down irritated skin, suitable even for those with sunburnt skin. Avene products are formulated with thermal spring water, rich in minerals, which enhances the soothing qualities. Inexpensive and readily available in Guardian Pharmacies, you know it’s a reliable brand when it’s also highly recommended by most dermatologists.
To use, smooth on the mask cream on clean skin. Leave on for about twenty minutes before using a soft sponge to cleanse it away with lukewarm water. Carry on with your toner, and moisturizer. Use the mask nightly if your skin irritation persists, otherwise, use it three times weekly for best results.
During winter time, you might want to use the mask daily to hydrate your thirsty skin. For folks in tropical climates, if you are not getting sufficient sleep and drinking enough fluids, your skin may also be parched, applying the mask before makeup will also help to set your foundation and promotes longer wear.
Finally, a tip to all sensitive skin users: always look out for the key words, ‘hypoallergenic’ and ‘non-comedogenic’ if you want to be doubly sure the product is right for you.
