: I hope someone can help me!! I have always had very sensitive skin and eczema, especially on my face. When I use any kind of eye makeup, my eyes get red, itchy, and very swollen. Even cleaners can be irritating. I had gotten an assortment of corticosteriods over the years for it, but I KNOW how serious the sideaffects can be when abused. Even lotions like Moisturel and makeup like Clinique and Almay affect my eyes. Does anyone know of really gentle products I could use? I cant begin to tell you what my bathroom closet looks like with products that have only been used once or twice!! Thanks soooo much for anyones help!

I too have suffered from eczema on my face (and bosy), and I have been on/off steroids for years. I use a great moisturiser on my face which my pharmacist makes up for me - it consists of sorbolene cream with 10% olive oil, 10% glycerin, 10% liquid paraffin. It is super gentle and has no preservatives or other yuckies! As for makeup, I find Nutri-Metics and the Body Shop to be the best for people with sensitive skin. Good luck!
