Skintifique - skincare for the most sensitive skin

Today I'm really excited to tell you, guys, about this new skincare brand I've discovered only a few weeks ago. Skintifique, born in Paris and Boston, develops and distributes extremely pure and efficient dermatological skin care products for people whose skin is sensitive, allergic or suffer from dermatological conditions such as eczema, psoriasis. Their products are eco-friendly, vegan, hypoallergenic and animal cruelty free.
My skin is not overly sensitive but my older son has eczema so when I saw that many of their products are suitable even for babies I wanted to try them, on myself and my boys.
I was kindly sent some products and after testing them out for a while I want to share my thoughts on them.

Skintifique products for sensitive skin

Skintifique currently offers four innovative skincare products, which are 100% pure and non-allergenic. The formulations are based on two key founding principles : “Bioinspiration” and “Radical Simplicity”. They include the world’s first skincare product to provide protection against allergies to metals such as Nickel, Chromium and Cobalt, as well as a product with exceptionally strong and lasting moisturizing and soothing efficacy.

Cleanser P*, £12  

This is basically micellar water kind of cleanser, an extremely pure, non-irritating formula, which contains only 5 ingredients (Aqua, Polysorbate 20, Poloxamer 184, 1,2-Hexanediol, Chlorphenesin) and it's free from parabens, silicones, mineral oil, alcohol, fragrance, EDTA.
The cleanser removes makeup, traces of pollution and metals like Nickel, Chromium, Cobalt, which are often cause for allergic reactions.

The micellar water is very gentle and non-drying at all, it's quite effective at removing makeup but for heavier eye makeup is not enough I'm afraid. But if you have very sensitive skin, prone to allergies or suffer with skin conditions then this is perfect as it won't aggravate any of the problems.

Another safe and pure formulation, created with only 13 ingredients (Aqua, Isononyl Isononanoate, Calcium Carbonate, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Glyceryl Stearate SE, 1,2-Hexanediol, Ceteareth-20, Carbomer, Chlorphenesin, Tocopheryl Acetate, Xanthan Gum) and patented technology which prevents metals from penetrating the epidermis while letting the skin breathe. Perfect for dry, sensitive, allergic or with eczema skin.

The lotion has a fast-absorbing, non-greasy texture which deeply moisturizes the skin, in fact this is the best moisturising body lotion I've ever used because it makes my skin being comfortable and very well hydrated and protected all day long.
You know the feeling when your skin gets tight and itchy even though you applied body lotion after shower/bath?
Well, after using this lotion I don't have this feeling anymore. Even at the end of the day my skin feels soft and supple like I would have just applied some moisturiser.

Although the product is not specifically targeted at babies and children I've used it on my boys (they're 6 and 4) and it's perfect for them as well.

An exceptionally pure (only 8 ingredients:  Aqua, Glycerin, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Glyceryl Stearate, Pentylene Glycol, Bisabolol, Chlorphenesin, Ethylhexylglycerin) head-to-toe moisturising, soothing and repairing cream. Provides intense and long-lasting hydration. Suitable for dry, sensitive, irritated skin or skin conditions (eczema, psoriasis), perfect for adults, children and babies.

The Hydrating Gel Plus HS is based on the exclusive patented Activifique technology. This allows for a progressive delivery of active moisturising and soothing agents.
The moisturising and soothing agents are released over time to the skin. This results in a long-lasting action, as well as a great efficacy during long periods of use. Also, the active ingredients are released quicker when the skin needs them.

This is a really amazing cream if you suffer with any skin conditions that need something very soothing, non-irritating and hydrating.
My son's eczema is quite mild on regular basis but sometimes he'll get those very dry patches that he just wants to keep scratching and this cream has been amazing at soothing and healing his skin in, literally, no time.

I have used this cream on my face after my chemical peel sessions and it works amazingly well as a soothing and deeply hydrating mask. I wouldn't use it as my face cream on regular basis as it's a bit too rich for my skin but it's perfect every now and then when my skin needs it.

The texture of this cream is quite thick yet it's fast absorbing and non-greasy but it leaves a protective layer on the skin.

If your skin is extremely dry, sensitive or you suffer with skin conditions I can't recommend the Skintifique products enough. They have truly amazing formulas that won't irritate but will soothe, heal and hydrate the skin.
You can buy them directly from Skintifique website or from Amazon.

Do you suffer with dry/sensitive skin? What are you 'go to' products?
