19. Porcelain Botanical Soothing Gel, $69.50
“The bottle is tiny. The price is a tad exorbitant. And yet, as someone with sensitive skin and mild rosacea, the Pure Botanical Soothing Gel is a god-send. A pump and a half is sufficient to cover the entire face, glossing it over smoothly without making it feel/look oily. I noticed redness across my face calm down after several mornings of use as a day time moisturiser. As an added bonus, it makes the application of foundation/concealer glide on. A must-have investment in the arsenal of sensitive and/or problematic skin types.” — Jemma
