Sensitive saviours

My skin has been very dry and sensitive this year, so here are some products that really helped me out and hopefully they may help you too.

Licorice Calming Cream

profile

Oily/Resilient

This is a gel-like moisturiser that contains 58% Licorice Exosome and 100 million Licorice flavonoids. These help to calm down irritation while also locking in moisture, with a claim for 24 hours of hydration. Other great effects of this cream include fading hyperpigmentation, brightening the skin, reducing redness and it is also non-comedogenic. This makes it the perfect for acne-prone and sensitive skin types. As I am currently taking oral Isotretinoin my skin has been super sensitive, and I also have a lot of leftover scarring from old breakouts. This cream had definitely been effective at calming almy redness and soothing irritation. I am also noticing my acne scarring starting to fade more rapidly since I started using this moisturiser. In the mornings this sits really well under my SPFs and makeup. I think people with more normal to oily skin would appreciate this formula a lot more than dryer skin types. But, as I said, the results of the ingredients are quite apparent, so if you want these results or to try this cream out but are dry/super dry (like myself) then layering it with other moisturising products works very well.

The Cica Care Balm from Rovectin has been a favourite of mine for a while now (as have pretty much everything I have tried from them) ๐Ÿ’“ The focus ingredients are ๐Ÿค Calamine to ease irritation ๐Ÿค Madecassoside (Cica) to reduce dark spots, heal and calm ๐Ÿค Glycerin to lock in moisture This can be used instead of your regular moisturiser but I also like to use it in the last step in my PM routine, almost like a sleeping mask or similar to "slugging", to lock all of my previous steps in. The formula is silky and elegant to smooth across the skin and isn't greasy, shiny or tacky in any way. This has been an amazing product to use on my dry and sensitive skin while I'm roaccutane and I wish I had it prior to my treatment to calm my red and angry breakouts. As a little side note, I burn my finger on the inside of my airfryer a couple of weeks ago and it was really stinging and throbbing before I was going to bed. I was actually worried that the pain would keep me awake. I applied a thin layer of this over the top on the burn and almost instantly the pain was gone. This is such a gem and I can't speak more highly about it.

I received this product for free from Picky and Purito in exchange for my honest review ๐Ÿซถ๐Ÿป ๐Ÿ’™ Deep Sea Pure Water Cream This moisturiser contains: ~ Niacinamide to tackle uneven and dull looking skin. ~ Sodium Hyaluronate to attract moisture into the skin and restore the skins moisture balance. ~ The same deep sea water, sources from 605 meters below sea level ~ And the same Marine Complex that leaves the skin supple and smooth. ๐Ÿ’ญ When I first opened this tube I didn't think this would be hydrating enough for my painfully dry skin, but I was wrong. This has been just what my skin needed in a moisturiser. It's packed with hydration yet still remains lightweight. It keeps my face moisturised till morning, when I use it in the evening and doesn't leave me feeling or looking greasy when I use it in the day time. The packaging is made from post-consumer recycled materials and can be recycled again once finished ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

This is the Cica Regen Vegan Sun SPF50+ PA++++ from Dr Ceuracle and quickly become a favourite of mine! What I love about it ~ ๐Ÿ’š Lightweight ๐Ÿ’š Chemical filters ๐Ÿ’š Zero white cast ๐Ÿ’š Doesn't irritate my eyes ๐Ÿ’š Calming and soothing with Centella Asiatica extract ๐Ÿ’š Strengthen the skin barrier ๐Ÿ’š Moisturising ๐Ÿ’š Sinks into the skin ๐Ÿ’š No sticky finish ๐Ÿ’š SPF 50+ This also has a bunch of other brilliant ingredients, such as niacinamide, glycerin, adenosine and madecassoside, which can all do great things for the skin barrier and the overall look of the skin. This does have a herbal and slightly medicated scent to it but it is very pleasant and completely natural to the ingredients used, as there is no added fragrance or perfume. This is a guaranteed repurchase for me ๐Ÿซถ๐Ÿป

Just because the sun is behind those clouds let's not start to forget about our BFF ๐Ÿ”†๐Ÿ˜Ž This is one of my current favourites! The claims are UNREAL! But totally real.. if you catch my drift ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ ๐ŸŒฑSPF50+ PA++++ ๐ŸŒฑNo white cast ๐ŸŒฑWaterproof ๐ŸŒฑVegan formula ๐ŸŒฑReef safe ๐ŸŒฑLightweight ๐ŸŒฑNon-sticky ๐ŸŒฑSun protecting ๐ŸŒฑBrightening ๐ŸŒฑAnti-wrinkle Erm... Can it get any better than this? Hello ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป Why are more people not talking about this? ๐Ÿ˜ณ I received this in my Vegan Picky Box and I think it might actually be my favourite product from that box. Not only does it live up to all the above mentioned claims, it sinks into the skin quickly, it feels moisturising but not greasy and it has an extremely subtle fresh herbal scent that disappears once it's applied.

This is a really nice gel cleanser that you only need a little bit of for it to foam up perfectly. I really like the natural fresh scent that it has and it has never made my skin feel dry or tight at all.
