When skin gets dry and dusty-looking, it’s more susceptible to redness and discomfort. This rich balm, which is free of all possible irritants, strengthens your skin’s barrier and hydrates it with natural fruit extracts.
If your skin is parched or plain sensitive, use a creamy cleanser to wash your face (in lieu of drying foam washes or scrubs). This mild lotion formula removes makeup and dirt, while moisturizing skin.
The company’s oatmeal bath soak has been calming dry, angry skin for nearly 60 years. This mild body wash, a more recent incarnation, contains the same soothing oatmeal extracts, plus other emollients to alleviate itchiness while you shower.
