I have hyper-sensitive and reactive skin. Rather than relish the luxury of my pretty-penny cleansers, my facial epidermis shines red after every wash. (What gives, skin?)
Cue Pai Chamomile & Rosehip Sensitive Skin Cream, a 78% organic moisturizer formulated for delicate and hyper-sensitive skin. I've slathered two pumps, twice a day for one month on every inch of my face to test its claim. The verdict? It's mighty soothing.
This yellow-colored cream brags omegas 3, 6, 7 & 9, along with potent portion of German chamomile CO2 extract to soothe, and Rosehip CO2 Extract to repair and guard the epidermis barrier of moisture. Devoid of alcohol and other irritants, this calming concoction packs a punch but does not irritate or burn on contact. Unfortunately, my facial redness not was not completely calmed or eradicated with each use, but I still count it as a winner due to its organic elements, soothing action on contact, and ability to dispel at least some of that resilient hue. The smell of the moisturizer is fresh and definitely not as strong as the orange Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil from the same line. It adequately hydrates, but remains light enough to employ under makeup.
I love Pai Chamomile & Rosehip Sensitive Skin Cream, and at the moment, 1/4 of the bottle remains despite 4 consistent pumps per day. One pump could stretch for the whole face, but the moisture junkie in me cooed for that extra dollop.
Everyone's skin is different. If you have mild redness or reactive sensitivity, Pai Chamomile & Rosehip Sensitive Skin Cream could completely soothe it away. But if you are highly-reactive and sensitive like me, I recommend it as a management or 'won't make it worse' product rather than a complete solution. At a whopping $48/ounce, I am saving my pennies to buy another.
