hella dry and sensitive skin
I have extremely dry and sensitive skin and my sister turned me on to the Josie Maran line with Argan Oil.....and I loved it......until this week. I started breaking out (which has never happened to me before) and now Im not sure if its the argan cleansing oil or what! Im trying to decide if I should try some other cleansers to see if it works. I did a Boscia Black Illuminating mask last night and my face feels wonderful but I need an everyday cleanser. I was thinking of trying Ole Henrickson\'s line for dry skin. Any thoughts or advice??
What products in the Josie Maran line did you use? Was it just the cleansing oil and the Argan Oil? As much as I love the argan oil, it was not moisturizing enough on its own for the face (works better in conjunction with another moisturizer). Same with the cleansing oil.
Everyone's skin reacts differently to products so the Ole Henriksen may or may not work out. Go for it. If it does not work out, return it. The toner in the kit is nice and alcohol free. So far no personal experience with sensitivity issues from this brand. Although if you have any issues with fragrance, this may not be the right kit. Same if you have had past issues with certain SPF ingredients (oxybenzone).
Brands that are worthwhile to try for sensitive skin: REN, Skyn Iceland (at their official site; Pure Cloud and Glacial Face Wash), Boscia, Caudalie. Sample when possible. If the concept of a cleansing oil is appealing, Amore Pacific (fragranted) or Shu Uemura are worth looking into for drier skin types.
Also keep in mind staying hydrated (water) and limiting sugary foods and drinks will help dry skin in the long run. As tempting as it is in the winter time to take hot steamy showers, too hot of a temperature will dry out the skin as well.
Hope this helps.
