If you have very sensitive skin, there’s a temptation to avoid skincare products altogether. After numerous adverse reactions, you figure that zero product is better than inflammation, a rash, or even hives. Right?
Wrong! Ignoring sensitive skin can lead to even bigger problems. I know this because my daughter has such sensitive skin, she can barely tolerate shampoo, let alone moisturizer. When she was young, no scrap of lace could touch her (even on the wrist, never mind the neck!), no color, dyes, or additives could be found in our laundry detergent, and I became an expert at removing tags from every dress, sweater, skirt, and pair of pants in her closet!
As she grew older, she began to experiment with makeup, masks, and moisturizer… often to disastrous results. I wish we had known about Lindi Skin!
Since 2003, Lindi Skin has offered a complete skincare line designed specifically for the unique needs of people with the most compromised skin. Originally developed for those undergoing the rigors of cancer treatment, this is the gentlest skincare line imaginable. Clinically-proven both safe and effective, Lindi Skin line is unlike anything we’d ever tried.
So what does my super-sensitive 20-something say about Lindi Skin products?
Face Wash: The Lindi face wash has a light, almost citrus-y scent that really makes skin feel refreshed. Unlike other cleansers, it doesn’t dry out my skin. It feels moisturized without feeling oily. It is non-lathering, so it might take a little getting used to, but as soon as I dry my face I can feel how much cleaner and happier my skin is. Retail $22
Face Serum: My favorite piece from this collection! Incredibly light and easy for skin to absorb — definitely great for putting on makeup right afterwards. I love it because I only need a tiny bit, but the lavender scent still comes through. It’s great for calming the senses before bedtime. Retail $40
Eye Hydrator: No more dry, flaky skin around my eyes! This hydrator is super silky, but unlike others, it is more of a gel, so it doesn’t feel heavy or sticky. I saw more even, brighter skin around my eyes and less puffiness in the morning when used at night. Retail $30
Lip Balm: Hydrated dry lips effectively and comes in a teeny pot! Very little scent or flavor, making it good for combining with other lip-wear. Retail $10
Overall: I love how light these formulas are. After using them for a few days I’ve seen obvious improvement in my complexion, the evenness of my skin tone, with fewer bumps and less redness. Skin feels smooth, soft, and perfectly moisturized. Two thumbs up for Lindi!
