Finding a face cream for sensitive skin (ครีมสำหรับผิวแพ้ง่าย, which is the term in Thai) can be challenging. The fitting cream hydrates and provides a solid foundation base, but this doesn’t come by easily. People with sensitive skin may get rashes, dry and peeling skin, eczema, irritation and burning from using incompatible face creams. So, to save you the trouble of continuous trial and error, we’ve highlighted creams that won’t lead to a skin reaction.
Garnier Moisture Bomb 3-in-1 Day Cream
Made with pomegranate extract, this product relieves sore skin, providing moisture for a whole day. Its scentless nature makes it ideal for skins that react to scented creams. However people with combination or oily skin may not find this product suitable. It is meant to be used on the specific dry region since it is intended for optimum hydration.
Estée Lauder Hydrationist Maximum Moisture Crème for Dry Skin
This cream rightly does what it states on the pack: “provides maximum moisturization”. It is pretty thick, thick enough for combination skin all-over use. For such types of skin, only apply on dry regions (close to eyebrows and cheeks, avoid the T-zone). It penetrates quickly and gives your skin a silky feeling.
Elemis Hydra-Boost Sensitive Day Cream
The lightweight nature of this product means it penetrates quickly. It is best applied just before morning foundation. However, the lightness means you must use more quantity each time compared to the amount you’d apply with others. It is scented with aromatherapy oils and calms inflammation with its orange blossom.
La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra Fluid
It is best applied in the night. Apply some before bed and wake up moisturized. It has a silky texture and moisturizes and doesn’t leave residue traces on your skin. Can last all day and doesn’t affect the foundation. It has successfully gone through a test on highly irritated skin.
