Question from nicollette

Hello, I was hoping you can help me, I have very sensitive skin. I can use either bioderma or vichy face products. I have been looking for ages for a foundation and concealer that would not make me break out. The only makeup iv used from a teen is yardley oatmeal face powder. And i really would like to find something that would work for me.


Thank you so much for your question, Nicolette. In terms of Foundations and Concealer, it is VERY difficult to find over the counter cosmetics that don’t irritate very sensitive skins. For this reason, we stock 2 medical brands of foundation & concealer. The one being Lycogel and the other being Oxygenetics. The reason they work so well is that they are a breathable medical foundation, containing calming and healing ingredients to prevent any sensitivity. If it is any indication as to how well they work, they can even be applied to open skin (for example skin that has been recently peeled, or treated with Laser, or even sore swollen and inflamed skin after procedures). If you want any more info, you can find it on our products page at:
