After trying the Kiehl’s Iris Extract Skin Essence, I knew I wanted to try some alternatives. It was the first skin essence I tried and it was a product I had never used before. So what is a skin essence? It is a step in your skincare routine that you apply after cleansing but before moisturizing. The product helps to have your skincare sink into the skin much better. If you have dry skin like me, it’s an absolute life save. So how did I fare with this The Body Shop version?

Because I have sensitive skin and I can’t find enough reviews or information about products that work well, I have taken it upon myself to put some more information out there. Often I have tried recommended products and have found they don’t work. Even if those products are good for sensitive skin. So if you are like me and you are tired of trying product after product without many results than I hope this blog post helps.

Ever since trying a few Kiehl’s products after receiving some in a goodie bag, I have become quite the fan of many of their products. That said, however, you can always try more and Kiehl’s is really great with trial sizes. All you have to do is ask and you can try their products for free. I received a sample of their Calendula cleanser to try and here’s what I think of it.

A toner is a regular part of my skincare routine. In terms of skincare products that I have used consistently for years, then toner was one of the first items that made a very regular appearance. I have tried a few over the years, with some being more successful than others. How will Lush’ Breath of Fresh Air toner water fair?

One of my favorite skincare lines of all time is La Roche Posay. I have tried a few of their day creams, most notably their Toleriane Ultra and Hydraphase face creams. When I last spotted the brand, I saw a cream I had not yet tried: Toleriane Ultra Nuit. Since I generally like their products and I was looking for a new night time cream to try, I decided to pick it up.

A good moisturizer is a must for me year round, but especially in the fall and winter when my skin gets drier I need something that works on my dehydrated, sensitive skin. Sadly, my favorite moisturizer of all time, the Olay Total Effects moisturizer for sensitive skin has been discontinued and so I’ve been on the hunt for a worthy replacement. Will this be it?

Skincare is very much a trial and error ordeal and when you have sensitive skin it is even more so. It took me ages to develop a skincare routine that works for me as much of what I tried would make my skin feel worse rather than better after using a moisturizer or a cleanser. It’s why I don’t change up my routine much, if at all, and why I use up a product before moving on to the next. My skin just likes it better that way. Here are 5 cleansers that my sensitive skin loves!
