  1. What wash and moisturizer do u use? I have sensitive skin and suffering
    from adult acne & don’t know what to do. Im getting frustrated with my
    pimples and acne scars. 

  2. Thanks Jen, this was so helpful! I love your straight hair btw!

    Does anyone know any eyeshadow for sensitive skin? I’ve been using my Too
    Faced eyeshadows and other non-brand eyeshadows for years, but when I used
    it one day, my lids and under eye swelled up so much and it didn’t heal for
    a week or so. I haven’t been using eyeshadows for months now for this
    reason, so my makeup routine is very boring… Please help!

  3. You really sound like me!!! And we have the same skin tone too, even though
    I’m Caucasian!
    On top of all my skin sensitivities, a few weeks ago I was diagnosed with
    DRESS Syndrome (Drug Induced Hypersensitivity Syndrome) and it is NOT
    pretty! :p
    Been dealing with adult acne too, for the past year or so, and I could just
    not understand what the heck was going on with my skin!

    You know what I did? I WENT RAW!!! Okay not fully 100% percent raw
    everyday, I might eat some boiled legumes/rice, but there are days in which
    I only eat fruits and veggies!!! 😀 😀 I am so happy and so comfortable
    now! Skin issues=gone, sinusitis=gone!
    Try it! It doesn’t have to be 100% raw, just cut the dairy, gluten and
    cooked/processed junk and you’ll discover your real skin!
    much love and hugs to you beautiful Jen! <3 <3

  4. I get eczema all over–even my face! 🙁 some products that have worked for
    me are: First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream, Josie Maran Argan Oil, Laura
    Mercier Mineral Powder SPF 15, By Terry Baume de Rose, and most recently
    Sibu Beauty Nourishing Face Cream. Hope this helps someone out there! :)

  5. My skin is such a pain in the butt! Its very sensitive and has a lot of
    issues with heat and sun exposure. I like using Stevens skin cream. Its dye
    and perfume free. This stuff is great. I also like making my own body
    scrubs. I tend to use them on days I shave. It’s main moisturizing
    ingredient is coconut oil. I can’t sing enough praises about coconut oil.
    Its a fantastic moisturizer. I find that when I use this scrub I get a much
    closer smoother shave and my skin stays moisturized throughout the day.
    The only place I cant use it is my face as I have super oily facial skin.
    This is just my experience with it. Hope this helps!

  6. I’m going to start taking Phytoceramides for my sensitive skin. I’ve read
    really good reviews on it so I’m hoping it works! :O

  7. My skin is extra-sensitive. i’m allergic to all the brands of blushes i’ve
    tried except for one (a local brand called Basic Beauty, which has since
    closed down, aaarggh.) I had to track down the owner so i could buy a
    five-year supply from their remaining stock. I’m also allergic to all the
    brands and kinds of foundation i’ve tried, except for a couple, one of them
    being Maybelline Clear Smooth Aqua Gel Foundation. I havent found a
    concealer that i’m not allergic to so i just use a lighter color of the
    same foundation for concealing until i find one. same goes for facial
    washes and moisturizers. it’s frustrating because i think the last 40 or so
    new products i’ve bought to try on my face, i just had to give away. that’s
    a lot of wasted money. my face gets itchy red patches either the moment i
    use them or a few days later. thank God I can wear anything on my eyes and
    lips. right now, the only facial wash i can use is Noxzema Anti-Bacterial
    Lathering Cleanser and the only moisturizer i can use is Aveeno Clear
    Complexion Daily Moisturizer. I panic when i’m about to run out of these
    products because they are not readily available in my country. 

  8. Lush -dream wash and dream cream are really good for eczema, I use them and
    it really helps keep the itch under control!But use another moisturiser on
    top of the dream cream if you feel like you need to, I use either Nivea or
    plamers. Life savers!!!

  9. Thank you for this video! I couldn’t really put makeup on my face otherwise
    I’d break out in hives in the past

  10. Hi! Just had one tip, Paula’s choice has a site called beautypedia and
    there she reviews A LOT of brands and their products! And she doesn’t pull
    other brands down, but she is really honest about the product, based on the
    ingredientslist etc. 

  11. A good face wash for sensitive skin is cetaphil, they have one for dry skin
    and oily skin, I haven’t tried the moisturizer yet.

  12. Organic products can help with irritation and sensitivity. I use a rose
    water witch hazel that has been helping and drinking spearmint tea twice a
    day helps with hormonal acne. 

  13. Took 5 good years to find a good skin care routine that works for me.
    Luckily I found it early teen age, my skin is so sensitive that ‘sensitive’
    or hypoallergenic products make me breakout for days. Its so sensitive that
    I can’t actually wear any makeup apart from lipstick or eyeliner (but
    eyeliner is a issue too sometimes) 🙁 life. 

  14. I just started a channel a few weeks ago, quite insecure about it, but I’m
    happy so far. Hope any of you guys will check it out :)

  15. There is a really helpful skin cream called Noxema that clears your skin
    and keeps it clean without completely drying it out. However, the best
    thing for acne is drinking water. I had horrible acne about a month and a
    half ago and now it’s completely clear because I started drinking mostly
    all water. 

  16. I have eczema and my favorite body lotion is the Aveeno Eczema Therapy
    Moisturizing Cream. It works so well and I love it! I also love the Aveeno
    makeup removing wipes. And the Aveeno Active Naturals Daily Moisturizer
    face lotion! Basically anything that is Aveeno works for my eczema! 😀 

  17. Oh and for my pimples I love the clean & clear essentials deep cleaning
    toner (the one labeled sensitive skin) it’s amazing! 😀 

  18. Personally, my eyes are the only sensitive area to makeup removers. I’ve
    tried multiple makeup removers but my skin gets flaky and sometimes
    slightly swollen.. anybody have some advice for me?

  19. vichy makeup and roche for moisturized has an entered line of intolerant
    skin i used all their products face cream and milk for desmaquillante and
    my skin is like baby skin good luck is your skin is not that intolerant
    also i recommend nuxe i used the honey face and body cleaner and its
    micelar water its a line also for intolerant skin 

  20. i cant use most razors because there to sharp for my skin like if i do use
    them it will create blotchy marks on my skin that are visible in sunlight.
    I’m also allergic to my dogs so yeah …

  21. I had to cut back out all my make up for 2 weeks because my eyelids were
    dry and flaky. Since I wanted something to even my skin tone, my doctor
    suggested that I try Dermatologica’s Tinted Moisturizer. I didn’t have any
    reaction to it. Cetaphil products have been my go to products when my skin
    is sensitive. I also use CeraVe and Eucerin, but when I feel that my skin
    is acting up, I go back to Cetaphil. For my body, I only use Dove bar
    fragrance free. 

  22. The thing I use is natural unrefined shea butter or coconut oil. It got rid
    of my darkspots, blemishes,and scaring. Its natural so safe for most
    sensitive skin unless your allergic to shea butter or coconut. I don’t even
    have to wear foundation anymore. It replaced my lotions I used because its
    more moisturizing 🙂 hope this helps.
