With so many different moisturisers out there, finding the best one for your sensitive skin can be tricky. The main thing to remember is that you want something with minimal added ingredients and fragrances as this will not irritate your skin and can even help prevent breakouts and dryness in the future. If you’re not sure which moisturiser is right for you, here are the top five best moisturisers for sensitive skin!

Tolérance Control Soothing Skin Recovery Balm

This moisturising balm is packed with emollients and comes in a specially designed hygienic bottle that keeps it fresh. It’s fragrance-free, too, which makes it ideal for sensitive skin. Apply before your makeup or on its own to lock in moisture throughout the day. Great for people who suffer from dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis. If you have sensitive skin like me (I seem to be allergic to a lot of make-up and common creams) Avene products are a great go-to selection.  They are specifically designed to soothe reactive and intolerant skin, so this makes it my no.1 choice.

La Roche Posay Lipikar Balm AP+, Intense repair moisturising cream

If you’re in need of a moisture-rich moisturiser, look no further than La Roche Posay Lipikar Balm AP+. It’s fragrance free and has the National Eczema Associations Seal of Acceptance as it repairs dry skin and keeps it supple. It contains niacinamide which helps to reduce redness and flushing. If you have sensitive skin use this to create a protective barrier on your face prior to putting on your make-up and lather before bed as an overnight treatment.
