Skin Recovery Lotion

Skin Recovery Lotion is a soothing, oil-free moisturizer for red, sensitive skin prone to irritation, breakouts, blemishes and clogged pores.

Skin Recovery Lotion by Renée Rouleau gives highly sensitive, acne-prone skin the oil-free moisture it needs without clogging the pores or causing breakouts. A blend of advanced, natural water-binding ingredients addresses all dehydration, flaking and redness issues caused by harsh acne treatments, topical prescriptions, and general irritation. Skin Recovery Lotion goes to work fast to make skin look and feel calm and comfortable. The result? Skin that looks clearer and healthier with less sensitivity.

Refinery29 2019 Beauty Innovator Award Winner "This oil-free moisturizer soothes, destresses, and hydrates, like a 14-day stay at Canyon Ranch for highly sensitive, breakout-prone skin."

"This takes aggravated skin back to square one, no matter how reactive it may be."
