Clinique Reveals Nail Enamel for Sensitive Skin

For people with sensitive skin, irritation can come from many things, not just skincare products.  Even nail polish can cause eyes and the surrounding skin on the nails and hands to become red, itchy and suffer.  Always looking out for those of us with sensitive skin, Clinique has created a whole, fun line of nail enamels that aren’t just pretty on the outside.  They offer results and show that what is inside counts.

The Clinique nail lacquer for sensitive skin is super glossy and long-lasting.  Opening the bottle and applying the polish won’t cause the users eyes to tear up, burn, or itch which is a major plus in my book.  It’s ophthalmologist tested and dries in a flash.  With fifteen shades to choose from you won’t be searching for one to love.  From traditional colors in reds and light, bright and soft pinks you can create classic manicure looks or get a little wild with ’70 and Sunny’ yellow or ‘Black Honey’ which is a deep purple-black shade that looks just like Clinique‘s well-known and best-selling lipstick of the same name.  There are four metallic shades ranging from a coppery ‘Indie Rock’ and ‘Fizzy’ to the silver shades in ‘Made of Steel’ and ‘Strappy Sandals’ (one of three limited edition summer colors for 2013).  Each one is perfect for summer.  ‘Concrete Jungle’ a creamy gray is my personal favorite.

Clinique nail enamel for sensitive skin is available online at Clinique.com and at Clinique counters everywhere.

Redness-Relieving Moisturizers For a Gorgeously Even Complexion!

If you’re like me and have sensitive skin that’s prone to redness — and not in a sort of subtle, sweet rosy-cheeked sort of way — you know how tough it can be to cover it up without irritating it even further. Whether you’re just washing your face too roughly, using too-harsh products not cut out for sensitive skin, or just in a climate that doesn’t sit well with your finicky complexion, you know redness is unsightly (and sometimes even painful and dry!) and can be extra tough to soothe and calm down. Piling more and more concealer and powder on top of the problem definitely isn’t the way to go, so start at the base of your skincare with a soothing, redness-relieving moisturizer! Not only will it help eliminate the appearance of redness, but it also relieves dryness and flaky skin to prevent future redness and irritation, and feels soothing against sensitive and enflamed skin. Even if your skin isn’t prone to redness at all times of the year, it’s a great product to have on hand in the dry winter months!
