Hi, friends! I don’t know if you guys we’re aware of this, but April was Sensitive Skin month! AKA a month to raise awareness of the importance of recognizing sensitive skin, and how to care for it! I was so incredibly lucky to partner with AlumierMD to try out some of their sensitive skin products for the month of April, and I am so excited to share them with you!
I have always had issues with my skin, and it has always been extremely sensitive to everything – makeup, lotions, cleansers, sweat – you name it! So I am VERY careful with the products I put on my face. So when I learned about AlumierMD’s line for sensitive skin and rosacea, I knew it was something I could trust.
Let’s start off by talking about their SensiCalm, Gentle Cleanser. When I am on the hunt for a cleanser, I need something that is Gentle (hence my attraction to this product – it’s literally in the name). I look for something that is sulfate-free, paraben-free, oil-free, hypoallergenic and dye-free – I’m picky, I know! But, it is because all of these things act as irritants towards sensitive skin, and guess what?! This cleanser does not contain any! Yes, please! I also noticed that this cleanser help kept my skin’s oiliness to a minimum – which is AMAZING. I usually get oily within 2-3 hours of wearing makeup, and I found I didn’t have to do touch ups for ~6 hours after using this cleanser! Incredible!
Next up to discuss – AlumierMD Calm-R Redness Relief Lotion. This lotion is filled to the brim with antioxidants and so naturally, I was obsessed. I am blemish-prone, so I found this product to really help minimize the look of redness, and I can see how it would help people with rosacea- aiding in reducing the look of redness, while maintaining moisture AND not adding any oil! As well, during the month of April, I made the mistake of trying out a new powder foundation that really irritated my skin and I found that this lotion helped to soothe it.
Now, let’s talk about Night Moisturizer! I have never been one to use a separate lotion, just for at night, so this was totally new to me – but I am 100% hooked! This moisturizer was loaded wth hydration, and so I used it right before I went to bed, and when I woke up I was blessed with soft and supple skin – Yes, please! Seriously – waking up to dry skin is THE WORST! So this is going to be a staple in my routine from here on out!
Finally, I wear sunscreen every day – do you? It has always been incorporated into one of my face moisturizers (usually spf 10 or 15), but recently I’ve been trying this Clear Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 42 and I personally find it to be a great, everyday product that is really nice and light for my oily skin! I think it will be absolutely perfect for the summer months!
So – my verdict on AlumierMD’s sensitive skin products – YES! They are here, and they are here to stay! I am obsessed!
With Love, Meg
