Sensitive Skin | Careology Skincare

I recently shared skincare products (view post here) that helped get me through this rough winter. I mentioned that I have sensitive and dry skin, which seems to always flare up in the winter. Maintaining the combination of the two is a piece of work, because the skin is so delicate and using the wrong products could make things worse. Recently, I partnered up with Careology, a skincare line created specifically for sensitive skin

Careology currently has two products available, the Sweet Raspberry Softening Facial Cleanser and the Sweet Raspberry Soy Recovery Night Cream.

I know what you must be thinking. My initial thought and concern was the fragrance of the products. As someone with sensitive skin, any fragranced product is a no-no for me. However, rest assured, it's not some artificial fragrance. That raspberry scent (which makes the product smell like raspberry sorbet!) is Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) extract which is known to have natural anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory properties so I did not hesitate applying it to my skin.

The facial cleanser contains jojoba seeds (great for sensitive skin as opposed to microbeads) for a gentle exfoliating cleanse while the raspberry extract replenishes the skin with vitamins. I started using the product twice a day, once in the morning and once at night for about a week before I started getting some redness and irritation around my cheeks due to too much exfoliating. I recently switched to using it just at night and my skin has started to calm down. It's recommended use for best results is twice a day, however if your skin flares up like mine did, I'd cut down to once a day. 

The recovery night cream with a combination of soy and raspberry was created to restore and hydrate even the driest skin, which has made its way to become one of my favorite skincare products! Throughout winter, I would sometimes get dry patches in different areas of my face. Recently, it was around the corners of my mouth (attractive, I know) and with a few applications of this cream, it was gone! I also have to add that I can definitely feel the soothing affect on my skin-- I like it so much that sometime I also use it in the mornings as a moisturizer.
