One in two people say they have sensitive skin. But what does that actually mean? It’s used to describe a whole host of conditions: redness, irritation, inflammation, tightness... One thing is certain: sensitive skin isn’t happy skin. We want to help you find out which type of sensitive skin you have and identify the treatment it needs with our selection of gentle skincare to help soothe, repair and reduce redness in sensitive skin.

Redness-prone + reactive skin
This is easy to work out: take the cleanse test. If your skin feels tight after showering or removing makeup, it’s thirsty! It makes no difference if your underlying skin type is combination or dry – your skin is also dehydrated. Your routine should consist of Hydraliane Essence, packed with hydrating actives, applied morning and evening. Follow this with Hydraliane Crème Riche, an intensely hydrating, rich cream.
This kind of skin regularly feels "too hot to handle" - even if it doesn't always show obvious visible signs of discomfort. For example, it might be so touchy that just wiping it with a cotton pad makes it tingle, or maybe washing it with water produces a burning sensation...To avoid discomfort, we recommend using a velvety, comforting cream cleanser such as Sensifine Cleansing Milk to gently remove makeup with your fingertips as this minimises friction from cloths and cotton wool. On the whole, the fewer the the number of ingredients, the simpler the formula and the easier for sensitive skins to tolerate; with just 10 ingredients, Sensifine Cleansing Milk dissolves makeup and cleanses skin in a single step while not aggravating highly sensitive skin. Ideally, we recommend following on with Sensifine Moisturising Face Cream, to rehydrate and soothe.
This type of skin reacts to anything and everything - even water can set it off, or UV, alcohol, exercise, your emotional state... and when this kind of skin flushes or heats up, it’s plain to see! SVR's solution is Sensifine AR, our anti-redness range.
