The Perfect Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin

When you have sensitive skin, finding the right products is a challenging balance to maintain. It’s a bit like dating; you have to kiss a few frogs before you find your prince. Like a bad relationship, the wrong products for your skin can have damaging effects that take a while to recover from. Here are some common types of ex-moisturizers we all have in our bathroom cabinet:

1) The non-committal moisturizer – the consistency is too light to seal the good stuff in, so everything evaporates off your face. No matter how hard you try, you can’t make this one stay.

2) The clingy moisturizer – the second you apply it, you regret doing so. It’s the moisturizer that you always know is there, because it makes its presence known. Your skin has no breathing room!

3) The show-off moisturizer – this one boasts tons of powerful active ingredients and a strong fragrance. Sure it sounds great in theory, but in reality it’s too much for your skin to handle. Common side effects including burning, stinging, redness, and bumpy outbreaks. This is the ex who wore too much cologne.

4) The wasn’t-meant-to-be moisturizer – you wanted to love this one. The packaging was sexy, the ingredient lineup sounded nice enough, and you read a few good reviews. Once you gave it a try, it just didn’t sit well with your skin. Your face was always mildly irritated even after weeks of use, plus your makeup never really got along with it anyway.

If any of the above resonates with you, you’ll want to keep reading – we’ve found your perfect match here at Peach & Lily. We’d like to Introduce you to the new aromatica Calendula Juicy Cream! Let’s discuss.



Ingredient Lineup
This cream is waterless, using 48% calendula floral extract as its base instead. For centuries, calendula has been used to treat skin conditions in a gentle way thanks to its anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties, as well as its skin regenerative nature.

The unique formulation also boasts ceramides and Tamarind Seed Polysaccharide to deeply hydrate skin and retain moisture for longer.


Brand Claims
Unscented. Hypo-allergenic. Suitable to use on babies’ skin. The fact that it’s Vegan and cruelty-free is just icing on the cake.

Our Take
We’ve all tried that one moisturizer that was supposed to be made especially for those with sensitive skin, but the familiar sting upon application lead to another disappointing experience. This is not that moisturizer.

As soon as we squeezed a little drop of this into our palm, we already loved it. Smooth, white, and slightly translucent, the texture was a thin, dewy, almost gel-like cream that still had enough body to hold its own shape. It’s also unscented without having that typical unpleasant unscented-scent.


After using our fingertips to massage onto the skin, it went on silky smooth and our skin drank it in. Then we waited – no stinging, no burning, and it didn’t feel like we were wearing a mask that was supposed to be washed off! Our skin felt happy and healthy, and it looked it. We loved that we achieved a glow without the grease.

In truth, the cream felt so comfortable that we actually forgot about it as we were getting ready. We were pleasantly reminded of it when we began to put our makeup on. Our foundation went on like a dream – it blended in easily and layered on smoothly without any caking or flaking. Our new favorite cream even doubled as a makeup primer!


Needless to say, we are huge fans of this cream. We tell all our friends about it, and we know you’ll love it just as much as we do.
