I have pretty sensitive skin but I also break out. These two issues are definitely not conducive to being treated easily =/ However, there are some really great, budget friendly products on the market. I would highly suggest cleansers like Cetaphil, Aveeno, and Neutrogena. Stick to products that do not use fragrances or dyes. I would also really suggest trying to find something that's pretty natural. I just discovered a toner from Misumi that has witch hazel, hyaluronic acid, glycerin and a bunch of essential oils and it's pretty amazing. Tea Tree oil is also great for sensitive skin.

I suffer from sensetive skin - mainly legs. I have tried a number of creams and oils but the only one that works for me is Camphor Essential Oil I also use it as an aftersun treatment in the summer as it seems to work. Might be worth trying. You can order it online via h&b shop. Fast delivery guaranteed

Hello Deborah
My sister has very sensitive and soft skin. She gets red and breaks out easily. We tried everything you can ever recall, say it Aveeno or Neutrogena or skin craft.
But nothing worked.
Then we got some advice from our grandmother. She was a homeopathic doctor. She recommended us some homemade recipes to try. Of course, we didn't believe her. But the miracle did happen.
Ill you the recipe, mix some coconut oil with glycerin and essential oil and tea tree oil. Take small quantities in the beginning.
Apply them day and night and after a month you will see the results.

My skin is super prone to rashes. After using cortisone for ages, I found a great dermatologist who informed me what ingrediants I was allergic to.
The first one is called METHYLISOTHIAZOLINONE, which is a preservative. (banned in Europe and Canada) It is used in almost everything including baby wipes. It causes redness, rashes, swelling, flaky skin and more if you are allergic. The second is SODIUM HYDROXIDE also known as lye, can be problematic when you are sensitive to it.
Also watch out for LANOLIN. Used as an emollient on sensitive skin, it can be very irritating.
Having this knowledge and avoiding these ingrediants has changed my life, especially being a former skincare specialist. Needing my skin to look and feel its best.
Now when I give advice to people that seek help, I always mention these ingrediants to steer clear of. I hope this helps someone out there. Treating the problematic skin can be costly and take forever. Reading label ingrediants is so much easier!
Please let me know if I can answer any questions out there, I'll be more than happy to help!
