Sensitive Skin

The best way to find out if you have sensitive skin is to visit a dermatologist. In my case, I have visited a lot of dermatologists in my area and two allergologists to help me solve my biggest problem – my sensitive skin. Allergic problems run in our family. I have severe eczema, allergic rhinitis and seafood allergy.

When you visit our house, you’ll never see any stuffed toy or anything like it. No furry toys, NO FURRY CLOTHES. Why? Because it easily accumulates dirt, oh my dust!

You can never see us use talcum powder. Why? Talcum’s small particles can cause irritation and trigger my allergies, isn’t it dusty?

We never wear pieces of jewelry too. Why? Because physical friction causes irritation. AT ALL TIMES! 😦

As for me, I don’t usually do the laundry or the dishes because my hand easily gets irritated when I come in contact with detergent soaps, dishwashing soap and even our hand soap!

Can you imagine my struggle? STRUGGLE IS SO REAL!

So just like me, I know you probably struggled to look for the right product for your skin or for your babies’ skin. I have tried a lot of products and I will be sharing it here. I hope it helps!


Cetaphil Baby Wash


Cetaphil has a new baby line and I am loving it! My favorite is their Gentle Wash and Shampoo. The description says “tear free, soap free, hypoallergenic, and PH balanced”. As I started using the product, I fell in love with it! I love its baby scent that keeps my child fresh all day. The scent stays even after a bath. It effectively cleanses my son’s hair and body plus it doesn’t dry his skin at all!


  • mild and gentle

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser


Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser has been the most recommended brand for sensitive skin. It has a mild, non-irritating formula for all skin types. It claims to preserve your skin’s natural protective oils while moisturizing it.

I remembered what my allergologist said, “Remember that the more your soap lathers up, the more it strips off your skin’s moisture’. He didn’t actually recommend Cetaphil to me but a bar of an oatmeal soap. However, oatmeal soap is not readily available in the supermarket so I opt to buy Cetaphil instead.

Its texture is the same as my moisturizer and it never lathers up when you use it. It’s fragrance-free and is indeed mild and perfect for my sensitive skin. It can be easily applied to your body and you can feel it’s moisturizing effect.

It rinses easily, you can even wipe it with a cloth instead of water! However, it doesn’t remove makeups like any cleansers do. Sometimes, I don’t even feel cleansed at all. LOL

  • non-comedogenic

Having a smooth skin makes every woman sexier. Who doesn’t want to have a silky smooth skin? After reading this, I bet your man could not resist your skin’s softness so be ready! It could lead to something much better. 😉

I can still remember the day when my husband touches my skin and says “WOW. Your skin is so smooth. How did you do that?” I can still feel his fingers stroke my skin plus hugs and kisses!

Exfoliation is the key to a beautiful smooth skin! I have tried a lot of body scrub especially when it’s almond or shea butter scented. But when I found about this scrub, I settled for it.

I am using Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub. It’s not pricey because it only cost P99 but the effect for me is awesome!

The Gluta-C body scrub has good packaging. It has a floral scent that you’ll love! It has a powerful combination of antioxidants, Glutathione, and Vitamin C.The beads are very fine, it doesn’t irritate my skin. It lathers smoothly because of its perfect texture. It’s not too runny not thick.

The ingredients can be seen on the tub’s packaging as well as the product benefits.

You can already feel the softness and smoothness of your skin after every bath. As for its whitening effect, it did whiten my skin a bit. But it’s not what I am after for. Let me know how it goes for you and what happened next. 😉
