Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin can be quite troublesome to deal with. If you’ve tried every product on the market but are having no luck finding one that doesn’t leave your skin irritated, red, burning, or dry, Skinsider can help.

We have a variety of Korean skincare products that are kind and gentle to the skin, yet powerful enough to help you achieve your desired results, with sensitive products from some of the leading skincare brands.

Sensitive skincare products need to address problems which are more common than you think. Redness and irritation are typically what sensitive skin products will tout that they will help with. Skinsider knows that sensitive skin can also mean someone is dealing with itchiness, intermittent dry patches (which lead to flaking), seasonal breakouts, and so much more.

Need help figuring out which products will help deal with sensitive skin? Here are some of the most common questions we’ve had from the Skinsider Family on their skincare journey.

What makes K-beauty sensitive skin products different?

Most people will think of K-beauty as something which has almost too many steps to follow. While having a dedicated routine is great for your skin, the truth is that it helps to have products that are specific to your needs. While one person may swear by a specific sensitive skin product because it helps with dry patches, it won’t help someone whose sensitivity is due to outbreaks.

K-beauty products use as many natural ingredients as possible, recognising and eliminating common ingredients prone to reacting poorly with sensitive skin. For example, it is very common for the scents added in big brand products to cause bad reactions, or for certain exfoliating properties to irritate the skin when it shouldn’t. You’ll see from our range of products that we stock everything from cleansers to essences which address sensitive skin issues.

What brands are known for sensitive skin products?

Skinsider only stocks brands it believes in. Some of the best brands for sensitive skincare products would include:

Klairs would be the most well-known sensitive skincare brand, but if you’re new to K-Beauty, we highly recommend giving COSRX, JKosmmune & URANG a look.

Does Skinsider have vegan-friendly sensitive skincare products?

We have many vegan-friendly sensitive skin products available. You can use the filter option on the left side of this page to see all those products, although a few favourites amongst our customers include:

I have sensitive and oily skin. What products should I consider?

Many people wrongly think that sensitive skin automatically means dry, but it is normal to have sensitive and oily skin. Keeping both under control can be tough. Products we recommend include the COSRX Advanced Snail Treatment Set, and the By Wishtrend Advanced Vitamin Treatment Set.

My skin is sensitive from sun damage. What products should I use?

No one likes the stingy feeling sun damage can have on the skin. Calming your skin should be easy, but some products can end up making skin feel more irritated than relaxed. To help control sun damage, we recommend any of the calming serums from Aqulabo, Beauty of Joseon, or Benton’s Aloe range.

What can I use for sensitive skin around my eyes?

Sensitive eyes can be made worse from tiredness and environmental stressors. To help the skin around the eyes feel relaxed, look at our range of Korean eye creams. Top brands amongst the Skinsider family include Benton, Heimish and iUNIK (who have a great vitamin eye cream).
