This thread always gives me non-sensitive skin envy. I have incredibly sensitive skin, I can't use most of the things people mention here. I use CeraVe PM lotion and their eye repair cream, but their daytime/AM facial moisturizer gives me acne, burns, and makes my skin rashy. Even Thayer's witch hazel or Mario Badescu's rose water toner - both of which I've heard high praise of - both make my skin break out. Having sensitive skin sucks.
Whenâ€™d you last try the CeraVe AM lotion? They recently changed the formula (in the past year, I think? ). It may still be too irritating, but some of the chemical suncreen in it has been greatly reduced & replaced with higher amounts of mineral-based spf (zinc oxide), which tends to be gentler on sensitive skin. Might be worth a try, if you can get it somewhere with a good return policy if it doesnâ€™t work out.
Also, I highly recommend this pure aloe gel (more a liquid than a gel texture, though, because it has no fillers) for irritated, sensitive skin. Itâ€™s perishable, so it has to be refrigerated after you open it, but it feels even more soothing that way, anyway. I apply with a cotton round, when I have it, but you can put it in a spray bottle, too.
