There are several skin types but the one that suffers the most is sensitive skin as very few products are manufactured specifically for them. This market is still being worked on. Finding a day cream or a face wash is no joke for this skin type and we can understand hence I bring to you a list of some of the tried and tested day creams and gels that work very well for sensitive skin beauties and there is something for every budget.

This 50 ml tub is priced at Rs 995 has plumping hyaluronic acid, wheatgerm oil, vitamin E which leaves your skin super hydrated, silky soft and nourished. Many people around me who have sensitive skin have made this a permanent part of their daily skincare routine but it is recommended you do a patch test as it works well on my dry skin as well. So each skin reacts differently.

Priced at Rs 350, this 120 ml bottle is a boon for many people out there who have sensitive skin and are looking for a face lotion which has sunscreen as well.  It has the goodness of sandalwood, ashwagandha, honey and many other amazing ingredients. However, this lotion as well is advised for a patch test as some people either fall in love with it and some just do not. Each person can have a different reaction.
