Stinging, flaking, and flushing are not ideal symptoms when it comes to experimenting with skin care. I mean, clearly, right? But for people with sensitive, borderline-explosive skin that reacts to anything and ev-ery-thing, the aforementioned results can be a regular occurrence — especially when you don't know what products to avoid (or which ones will actually work with your skin). Luckily, we're living in an age where more and more brands are stepping up and making products specifically formulated for fragile, easily irritated complexions: creams that calm redness, serums that strengthen the skin barrier, as well as a host of different treatments designed for skin types that need the extra TLC. On the flip side, with the influx of new products coming out at an ever-rapid rate these days, it can be difficult to decipher which ones really live up to their claims from the ones that are all talk. So we'd never expect you, dear readers, to shell out the savings you worked hard for just to try skin care that may or may not deliver. You don't have to, either, seeing as we consulted the experts and spent the last six-plus months testing them for you guys (and loving every minute of it). Without further ado, find the sensitive skin savers that made the cut and earned the ultimate seal of approval: an Allure Best of Beauty award. Cheers to chiller skin in 2018.
