Say bye to irritation!

Many of us have sensitive skin, but how many of us are doing anything to deal with it? If your skin gets easily irritated, you'll want to use gentle soothing formulas and keep away from anything harsh with too many strong chemicals or fragrances.

But that doesn't mean we should avoid skincare altogether. People with sensitive skin can still have dry skin, clogged pores, or breakouts, just like anyone else. So we need to maintain a healthy product regime, but we need to make sure we are choosing the right tools for our (beautiful skin!) war chest!

Though you may think you use the best skincare line out there, we're here to tell you that until you try the products from these companies, your skin won't feel nearly as good.
