Suggestions for oily and sensitive skin?

I’m looking to start a new skincare routine and my skin is super sensitive to products, most acne topicals make my skin burn. Any suggestions?

Re: Suggestions for oily and sensitive skin?

I'd recommend consulting with your family doctor or a dermatologist to rule out any skin conditions, allergies etc...


Staying away from active ingredients sounds like the way to go,

What are your skin care goals @MTTbrandqueen ?

(Are you looking for acne control, reduce redness,  anti aging etc....)

Re: Suggestions for oily and sensitive skin?

I am mostly looking to reduce oiliness and reduce redness 🙂


Re: Suggestions for oily and sensitive skin?

@MTTbrandqueen Are you sensitive to anything other than acne-fighting ingredients, @MTTbrandqueen? Are you sensitive to all acne-fighting ingredients- salicylic acid, retinol, benzoyl peroxide, sulfur? 

Re: Suggestions for oily and sensitive skin?

Yeah, I am sensitive to most acne-fighting ingredients, it makes my skin red and it burns.
