THE BEST MOISTURIZERS FOR SENSITIVE SKIN – MY TOP FOUR
(1) SUPER FACIALIST ‘PURE SENSITIVE SKIN RECOVERY DAY CREAM’ (£14.99 for 75ml at Boots)
This creamy, fragrance free moisturizer comes from one of my all-time favourite ranges for soothing sensitive skin. It contains probiotics, which help ‘good’ bacteria to thrive on the skin, boosting its natural defenses and helping to reduce sensitivity.
(2) EAU THERMALE AVENE ‘SKIN RECOVERY CREAM’ (£16.50 for 50ml at Boots)
Probably my all-time favourite for comforting very sensitive skin in desperate need of some TLC, this lightweight cream is rich in thermal water from the famous spring in France. I always recommend it to my clients who suffer with eczema and sensitivity.
(3) TRUE NORTH ‘DE-STRESSED DAY CREAM’ (£54 for 50ml at Harvey Nichols)
Now available in the UK for the first time, the ‘True North’ range was developed by Danish scientists to protect skin from the cold Scandinavian climate. Lightweight yet very nourishing, this cream contains microalgae and organic aloe vera, which is one of the best ingredients for sensitive types! They also do a fab concentrated Serum version of this product (£62 for 30ml).
(4) REN ‘EVERCALM GLOBAL PROTECTION DAY CREAM’ (£32 for 50ml at M&S / Space NK / John Lewis)
A more well-known Scandinavian brand, REN also make great natural based products, and their ‘Evercalm’ range for reactive skin types is no exception. This rich cream contains soothing goodies such as chamomile, sesame seed oil, shea butter and sunflower seed oil.
