IsNtree – Green Tea Fresh Toner
IsNtree’s Green Tea Fresh Toner contains 80% green tea extract from Jeju Island. Additionally, it also contains two other soothing ingredients — centella asiatica and allantoin — and hyaluronic acid to deeply moisturize the skin. This combination of soothing and moisurizing ingredients work to restore hydration to your skin, while at the same time strengthening the skin barrier!
Gentle even on very sensitive skin, thanks the absence of essential oils and fragrances.
Etude House – Soon Jung Relief Toner
Hands up if you already have this one in your Holy Grail lineup! The Soon Jung line from Etude House has been wildly popular with skincare lovers suffering from sensitive skin. Significantly, the Soon Jung Relief Toner, arguably the star of the show, has kept beauty communities abuzz since its launch.
Here’s the reason why. This incredibly calming toner is packed with three skin soothing ingredients — panthenol, centella asiatica extract, and green tea extract. The cherry on top? It only has a total of 14 ingredients with a pH of 5.5, which is the optimum pH to maintain a healthy skin barrier. Raise your hands and wave goodbye to dehydrated and irritated skin with this gem!
ACWELL – Licorice pH Balancing Cleansing Toner
Another pH-balanced toner, this time infused with licorice root water extract and green tea as its star ingredients! ACWELL’s Licorice pH Balancing Cleansing Toner is another favorite toner among sensitive skin skincare lovers. You can use it as a toner to help remove any dirt or excess sebum residue in the morning in replacement of a face wash.
Watch out, though, as it contains citric acid, an ingredient which may irritate some sensitive skin types.
Keep Cool – Soothe Bamboo Serum
One of the Picky Team’s personal favorites! Keep Cool’s Soothe Bamboo Serum is infused with bamboo water extract, centella asiatica, and allantoin. A pregnancy-friendly serum with a lightweight consistency, and a great option for all skin types to calm skin redness or irritation.
Krave Beauty – Great Barrier Relief
A skin-soothing serum that helps restore damaged skin barrier, while at the same time evening out complexion. Krave Beauty’s Great Barrier Relief is enriched with niacinamide, on top of other skin-loving ingredients such as tamanu oil, ceramide, and rosehip seed oil! A life-saving goodie that every skincare addict should have on their shelves.
KLAIRS – Midnight Blue Calming Cream
KLAIRS’ Midnight Blue Calming Cream is a gentle, soothing and hydrating cream that provides comfort to and effectively calms sensitized skin. The guaiazulene present in the product formula is a natural component of chamomile oil. More importantly, it is also a powerful calming ingredient. Additionally, centella asiatica works synergistically with guaiazulene to calm any irritation.
Benton – Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel
- Spent too much time out in the sun? You’re going to want to have this product at hand!
