Do your skin get red and irritated easily? Then you are most likely to have sensitive skin.
It seems impossible to find a cleanser that 1) either strips all your skin moisture or 2) leaves you with a terrible allergic reaction and dehydrated the hell out your skin or 3) all the above.
And one of the main culprits for that is the added fragrance in the product. Because of its complexity, fragrance can be an irritant and an allergen. The more ingredient the scent has, the higher the chance it is going to irritate your skin.
The good news is there are fragrance-free cleansers out there made for your skin type. Here are 5 gentle, scent-free cleansers that you need to include in your skin routine ASAP.
