sensitive skin help!

i have a huge problem.  normally my skin only has breakouts here and there and is oily.  however, lately my skin has been breaking out bad all over.  i decided to try neutrogenas oil free acne wash.  that killed my skin.  not i have flaky skin and redness along with the breakouts.  if anyone knows a good face wash, please help.  i am in my late  twenties and am afraid of wrinkles so even though my skin is naturally oily i do not want anything that will dry it out too bad.

I agree with GigiSD, Ole Heriksen is probably the best way to go. I have rosacea, so I usually stick with sensitive-skin products as well. My favorite is Origins Zero Oil cause I tend to get oily sometimes, especially during the summer. Before buying anything, double check with an employee. If you don't mind dropping $20 on a cleanser, talk to the ppl at Origins, they can prob give you a sample and good advice even if you don't buy anything.

I am partial to Ole Henriksen products because they are working so well for me. Henriksen himself had cystic acne and developed an all-natural line to cleanse and moisture with kindness. Please check out their products at Sephora or at the Ole Henriksen site itself. They are made to clean well without irritation and stripping skin of natural oils. There are non-oily moisturizes because moisturizing is extremely important, even at your young age.

Hello Bianca! I have fairly sensitive skin as well and I use very mild cleansers. I mostly just use Basis, which is super gentle and is about as close as you can get to just straight up water and soap (yet it has a very light and fresh scent). It's also fairly affordable and you should be able to find it at Walmart, CVS, online sites, and other basic drugstores. You could also try Cetaphil, which is much more commonly used and also very gentle. I've had good experiences with both, but I tend to opt for Basis only because it's more affordable. Also, in case you were considering a scrub for exfoliating, I recently tried 100% Pure's Brightening Scrub + Mask. That has also been very gentle on my skin and unlike some other scrubs, the beads in this wash is very gentle and doesn't scratch or irritate my skin like some other ones. Hope this helps!
