REVIEW: Products for Sensitive Skin

By Kristin 

1. Lumene Finland Facial Wipes– These truly are wipes for the sensitive! I used to only be able find the Finnish brand, Lumene, in Europe and became a big fan of their face wipes a while ago. When they came to U.S. drugstores about 3 years ago, I was so excited! These wipes have natural organic ingredients from the Arctic which I love and remove make up really well. The 100% organic Arctic Linen Seed Extract is very refreshing and soothing at the same time. My quest for the perfect face wipe has been a long one because I came to find my skin becomes irritated if my wipes have too many chemicals in them especially around my mouth and eyes.  So while my skin is not normally sensitive, when it comes to wipes…it is! I now try to find wipes with as organic ingredients as possible. Lumene wipes contain over 95% natural ingredients and are free from colorants, ethyl alcohol, fragrance, parabens, silicones, and paraffin oil…so all in all, these are perfect for all types of skin!

2. Wei East Advance Intensive Herbal Eye Treatment Pads– These are so great and make you feel like you are having a treatment in a spa when you put them on at home! I usually lie down in a nice quiet room and relax while letting the ancient Chinese herbal remedies soak into my eye skin. They have Tibetan chrysanthemum in them to erase puffiness and mulberry to lighten dark circles. I always leave them on for 15 minutes at least or even longer if I am using them after a night out partying! I wake up feeling refreshed and my skin looks and feels bright, supple and smooth! Amazing!

3. Lumene Finland Arctic Aqua Moisture Booster– Another product from this wonderful Arctic line! I use the Moisture Booster as a treatment at night after a hot shower when I am feeling dehydrated. It is like a gel mask at first but then it absorbs into the skin and you can apply other products on after. I feel like the hyaluronic acid holds the moisture deep into my pores after the steam from the shower has opened them up. You can use this product at any time though, even as a primer!  I also like the cooling feel of the Arctic Spring Water in this product. After it sets in, I apply my nighttime serum and cream and am off to a perfectly hydrated sleep. To prove the effectiveness of this product they even have done some independent testing in a clinical study with 20 women who had dry skin, which proved it:

• Improves skin’s hydration instantly by 65% *
• Skin surface even & moisturized, 95% agree 
• Skin smoothing effect, 90% agree 

* Clinical study, measured 5 minutes after application

4. Joey New York Peel-Off Mask for lines, wrinkles, and glow- This company has been around since the early 90s, and I can remember stealing my sister’s Pore Minimizer Gel when I would visit her in college at NYU. I remember thinking it was so cool how my blackheads were instantly gone! The Peel-Off mask gives those same instant results but also gives you deeply clean skin, shrinks large pores, and makes you look younger. I would say one would need to use this product for 4 weeks using it 2x per week to shrink their pores, all the other results are instant!   Just apply to your entire face and neck, avoiding the eye area. Leave on for 15 minutes or until masque is dry. Gently begin to roll mask off starting from the neck and working up towards the forehead. It may also be applied to the back of your hands, elbows, and feet. I find my skin is brightened but a little dry after, so I would follow with the Lumene Moisture Boost to hydrate immediately.

5. La Roche Posay Lipid Replenishing Body Balm– I love this moisturizer because it’s so hydrating and rich, it makes me feel like it’s summer time! My skin gets that moisturized smooth feeling that only summer brings after I use this lotion, and it also leaves a nice sheen which I like. I feel that replenishing lipids on the body is just as important as on the face. It’s also a good way to fight off the dreaded ‘kninkles’. If you don’t like anything greasy, then this is not for you. If you have kids, they say it is especially formulated for their sensitive skin as well!                                                        

Can you guess whose ‘kninkles’ these are?…someone who was known as ‘The Body’ in her modeling days:
