Sensitive cosmetics for sensitive skin
What does sensitive or sensitised skin look like?
Uncomfortable, reactive and easily disturbed. It is very common, which is why there are good cosmetics that think about it.
If you have sensitive skin, don't worry: we show you a routine that respects and soothes this type of skin.
