hi runner, welcome to the boards!
i too have extremely sensitive skin, and the only mousturiser i can safely use on my face is curel ultra healing mousturiser. the weird thing is that its not a facial mousturiser although it says on the bottle non comegenic, non acnegenic, etc. the routine i finally found that works for me is: clean and clear foaming facial cleanser for sensitive skin(although it does not foam) it is really good at removing makeup also,then i use use the loreal microdermabrasion kit scrub, it is an awesome exfoliator and doesnt have any soap or anything like that in it, basically just the silica particles to remove dead skin, then i swipe an oxy pad around my face to make sure it is clean and toned, then after my face has airdried i apply the curel, then a pea sized amount of retin-a micro(no more than that because it will dry you out like mad) . i do the same thing in the morning except i dont apply the retin-a. i was using differin gel at night but it was way to drying for my face, it would make my skin red and itchy and flaky. the retin-a micro does not do that at all. also i use almay with kiniten face makeup then set it with cornsilk loose face powder. 2 friends of mine that i actually had to give the makeup to in order for them to try it (because they are both to tight to spend the money lol)now totally love it and use it everyday. one of them had/has severe acne problems and it never occured to her that her makeup could have been causing alot of her problems also. to get to this routine though was a lot of trial and error( omg i could tell you some horror stories!) with all the different cleansers and face makeups and mousturisers and... well you get the idea. most people on these boards have gone through the exact same thing , so your not alone. good luck and i hope this helps you!
