I have sensitive skin. I feel like whenever I introduce something new to my skin care routine I break out.
I currently wash with peter Thomas roth anti aging cleanser (orange)day and night. I use this with my clarisonic at night.
I used effaclar morning and night all over my skin. Followed by Olay beautifying lotion. Or origins ginzing moisturizing gel.
When I do this my skin is fine and I don’t break out. I’ve tried bare minerals and I started breaking out. I think mineral makeup breaks me out because physican formula powders break me out, as well as revlon color stay, and the 24 hour mousse.
What kind of skin care products do you recommend me trying. I want to use a serum.
Does anyone have any foundation recommendations as well?

Elizabeth Arden youth ceramide serum is good for my sensitive skin. http://www.beauty.com/elizabeth-arden-ceramide-skincare-youth-restoring-serum/qxp451924?catid=298245
Bare minerals, and mineral make-up in general doesn’t work for my skin. It’s too drying, which makes my skin produce more oil to compensate, and that turns into a breakout.

That is sooo out of my price range. Any cheaper suggestions?

If you use Olay and PTR, TRUST ME, I don’t think you have sensitive skin. Both of those brands are loaded with ingredients that would make a truly sensitive person’s skin fall off. I happen to love PTR, btw. It sounds more to me like you have a mica allergy/silicone allergy, which is found in 85% of makeup out there. Bare Minerals or any “natural” makeup will cause that. I used to be a makeup artist and worked for PTR for a while, so I understand skin care.
If you want to introduce a serum, stick with organic products that don’t have coloring or dye. I swear by Sibu seabuckthorn berry oil (amazon, $14). It has a weird smell that dies down and an orange tinge that fades. This oil is really good for you.

I’ve actually tried using their hydrating serum specifically. I bought it from their website. after two days of use I have a lot of bumps onnmt forehead and two small ones on my nose!
I just don’t know what to do.

Why exactly do you want to use a serum? If you have sensitive skin, the less products you use the better!
Personally I can’t use serums because they’re too potent for my senstive skin. They dry it out and I produce more oil to make up for the lack of moisture.. Then, breakouts!
If you really feel the need, your best option is to visit a dermatologist.. Have a facial or even just a consult and let them tell you how to care for your skin. If its going on your face, you shouldn’t be looking for cheaper options, you should be buying the best quality ingredients you can.
